This is something new for him, as he usually is as mum as the proverbial clam when it comes to dis cussing anything relative to his profession. But it is different with the Cornishman to day. He wants it known that he is a pu gilist, and that he is looking for something to do. Mentions Jim Corbett. Fitz names Jim Corlett in one of his lists of prospective opponents. Fits and Corbett were on one train from San Fran cisco to Chicago it is said that during the entire journey they did not exchange even the flimsiest of greetings.

It is not likely that lutte will have e.s many teams, nor as strong ones, as in the years past. The spirit of the gamle seensl to IN(e flagging. The hi;hb school will doubtlcss have a good teaml this season. A year or two ago the high school team compared well with any aall;eur eleven in the state. The old crowd left the school, however, and not enough new material was at hand to cons tinlue tile sport. It is expected that this year will bring forth a number of prom ising, caendidates who will shortly begin traniing. The Itutte business college is not de cided as yet whether to have a team or not. It is tlllhought that Iefore tile seasonl is over tile school will be in the game the saIl.e as ever. Of course there will be the usuoal num Iecr of independenlct treumes ill Itlutte. Really great 'Iallplayers, from tie stand poinlt of tile falll, are few alel far betweenl. Ask the regular attendant at thie game, and he will tell you that there are only two players in harness today that are gen nline topnotchers, and they are Hans Wag ner of the IPittsbrg chalmpions and Napol eon I.ajoic of the (levelanld team. Ulcn fortunlttely for tie studenlt who likes to compare tile work of the two players as lie sees them, this pair are enot inl tile same league, and consequtently do not appear before the same crowds. Inl the American L.eague circuit l.ajoie is colnsidelred tile greatest of them all, while in the National Ieague cities Hans Wagner is recognized as the star of the raggregation. It wonld be ,a hard matter to decide which really is tie better player. Lajoie and W\agller are iln a way playing the gamle on about the. same lines. Blotl are awk wardly Iluilt fellows who do not impress one a.: h.lving much speed, but who are much faster than somee of the players who aire listed among the fast rlen of the pro. fession. When it conies to batting they are inl a class Ib thelmselves. As fielders beth are stars inl their respective positions. WVhen it comces to all-around work, Wag ner seems to ..ave ca bit tile better of his rival for first honors, for Wagner has proved a star out-fielder, a cracking good first baseman, and ais a shortstop there is not a1c man inl the league who is hiis equal, all things considered. Another advantage which Wagner seems to have over I.ajoie is that he is il scrappy, aggressive player, who is always hustling and makes him self popular with the crowds, which can not be said for Ioajoie, who is more of a quiet, unaggressive player. But it would be a hard matter to choose tbetween the two. Both are stars, and it will be years before the game is blessed with another pair like them. A team of \Vagners would never be defeated and a team of L.ajoics would come pretty near walking home with the pennant in any conlpany. That is the way the pair size up. Look over the other teams inl the leagues and you will find no other Lajoies or Wagners. They are in a class by themselves, and it would Ibe a ticklish hit of prophesying to predict that one would prove a more vaalable player than the i ther.-Cincinnati Com mercial Tribune. Jiml Corbett'is solnetimes guilty of speech that shows more than plain, every day intelligence. Ills worst enemly, how ever, cannot wish him a harder rap than he got last summer in a wordy bout with Marie Dressier, the actress. They were playing tennis near the Dressler cottage at Bayside, N. Y., when the actress served a careless ball and lost the game by doing so. "I'm afraid you'll never make a chaim pion tennis player," laughed Corbett, "even if you keep at it for twenty years." "Twenty yearsl" echoed Miss Dressier. "I'll be an old 'has been' by that time." "Well," said Jim, "the expression 'has been' will be a back number by then, too. I wonder what term they'll use in its place." "A 'Corbett,' maybe," suggested Miss Dressier, and his slur on her tennis play ing was squared. All clubs of the National association have been requested to furnish Secretary Farrell with data, for use by the Na tional board in fixing and enforcing a sal ary limit in leagues of each classification. The aggregate expenses of each club for pulled off on the coast and was also a draw. Clifford says that he is feeling better than he ever did and is much stronger. Ilad he been successful in putting Queenan out of the way, Clifford would have gone to liererra with another chal lenge. IHe is of the opinion that the Mex ican should give him another chance. salaries and the maximum pay of each player will be considered. The National board will be aggressive in keeping leagues and clubs within the salary limit. Clubs have also been notified to filq thelt lists of reserved players before September s5, as required by the National agreement. The season of the Pacific National league will close October 4, with reservation riglht,: preserved. The date of the AlcVey-Ed Martin go has been fixed for September 15 at San Francisco. This is expected to be a fine drawing card, as both mten have backers by the hundreds. Jack Johnson is in the coast town waiting for his turn at the winner, meanwhile hoping that Jeffries will erase the color line. Johnson says he has never been hit in the ring and he Indoes not believe the champion can get him. Johnson's plan is to keep oil hoping and putting in a word edgewise. He argues that as Corbctt never drew the color line, but met in Peter Jackson one of the greatest pugilists of all time, and as Frank Slavin went into the ring with Jackson, it is not for Jeffries to set up a barrier. Once again has Mr. Waddell figured as chief actor in a baseball tragedy. l-ie can not be checked, it seems. In the seventh inning "Rube" hoisted over the riglht field bleachers a long foul fly that landed on the roof of the biggest bean cannery in Boston. In descending the ball fell on the roof of the engine room and jaummed itself between the steam whistle and the stein of the valve that operates the same. The pressure set the whistle blowing. It lacked a few minutes to 5 o'clock, yet the workmenet started to leave the building. Tltey thought quit ting time had come. The incessant screeching of the bean factory whistle led enginecers in neighboriing factories to think tire had broken out and they turned ont steam. With a dozen whistles in full blast a policeman sent in all alarm of fire. Just as the engines arrived a steam cauldron int the first factory, contaitning a ton of beans, blew up. The explosion dislodged \Vaddell's foul fly and the whistle stopped blowing, but that was not the end of the trouble. A shower of scalding beans descended on the bleachers and caused a small panic. One man went insane. When he saw the beans dropping out of a cloud of steam the unfortunate rooter yelled: "The world is comting to an end and we will all lie destroyed with a shower of hot hailstones I" An ambu lance summoned to the supposed fire con veyed the demented man to his home.

I.-A determined effort is making by Chairman 'McLeod of the Western Pasenger association to secure the cancellation of the $8 rate for the round trip between Chicago and St. Paul. It is said by the chairman that all the lines with the exception of the Rock Island have agreed to take the rate out and re store the normal basis as quickly as possi ble, providing the Rock Island will do so. There is some doubt regarding the action the Rock Island may take. No reply has yet been received from the chairman's communication sent to that road some time ago, and General Passenger Agent John Sebastian said he was unde cided in the matter.

Viola was captured after a sever strug gle, during which he fired his revolver, but did no further damage. The pollce have been unable to learn what Viola's mollvt was in killing Tilo. BETTER CONDITION FELT ON STREET CONFIOENCE IS REVIVING AND DEALERS HAVE RECOVERED FROM THE PANIC. GOOD TIMES ARE PROMISED Henry Clews Thinks the Crops Will Carry Country Over This Season, Although Money Is Tight. New York, Sept. t.-Diversions, such as yacht races, vacations, etc., have material ly checked activity in the stock market. Uesides these interferences, it is evident that the big leaders are postponing opera tions until crop and monetary conditions are beyond uncertainty. Still another cause of inactivity is that the street has not yet fully recovered from the severe fit of pessimism by which it was attacked a few weeks ago; while the public, as usual, awaits some positive indi cation of leadership before venturing with any freedom after such experiences as re cently witnessed. Confidence Reviving. Nevertheless, confidence is steadily re viving, and after a period of sufficient rest it is reasonable to expect both a more active and a stronger market if unfavor able development do not interfere. It is important to remember that nearly all the forces now at work are either con servative or corrective; questionable financing being at an end. Recent liquida tion has left the market in a somewhat laile and exhausted condition, but the In juries were local and conditions are daily becoming more favorable to recovery. Wall street, in its final accounting, depends upon national prosperity; and this, fortunately, has not been seriously interrupted by finan cial excesses. Indeed, the Wall street collapse, serious as it has been in some quarters through forcing a spirit of conservatism in mer candle and industrial circles that was much needed, and without which we might have ere long run into a more serious set back than Wall street experienced. In Sound Condition. Fortunately, bankers, merchants and manufacturers in all parts of the country took early warning from the storm signals sent broadcast from the stock exchange, the result being that general business is in an exceptionally sound condition, free of overdoing and over-expansion to an un usual degree; so that, were it not for the ill effects of labor agitation and the re straining effect of high costs of production, the business outlook would be unusually roseate. In spite of drawbacks, however, business prosepcts are encouraging. Labor agitation is subsiding and coming back to reason. Capitl is likely to make smaller profits, but the volume of business promises to be large, and our industries are all well em ployed. Should prices of manufactured products decline to more noraml figures the effect would be advantageous, inasmuch as consumption would be stimulated while excessive new competition would be dis couraged by more noraml profits. Agricultural Situation. The agricultural situation promises to carry the country safely beyond any crisis. The farmer-whether he grows cotton, corn, wheat, hay, livestock or dairy pro duce-is sure of profitable prices for his output. Apparently this is not to be a year of big crops, but our agricultural products are not increasing as rapidly as the demand for them, the consequence being high prices and good profits to the farmer. Very likely combines and speculation have also, has been the partial removal of the congestion that has prevailed for some time past in the mercantile paper market by large purchases, commenced unduly en hanced the cost of meat and cotton, but they could not have done this were it not for the gradual overtaking of supply by de mand, the effects of which they simply ex aggerated for their own financial advan tage. It is many years since the American farmer enjoyed such prosperity as he is having today, and there is every prospect of his having another year of the same sort. This means much for general busi ness. As to Money. The monetary situation is still a subject that excites attention. Good rates for money are likely for some months to come. Loans I,' e failed to come down from re cent high, figures in spite of recent liquida tion. This is a disappointment, and indi cates a continued demand for accommoda tion in high quarters. Railroad borrowings are known to be heavy, but these do not cause concern, be ing for legitimate purposes and backed by good credit. Indications pointed to some of these loans being shifted to Europe for the purpose of relieving the local situation. This would defer gold imports, but our credit abroad was strengthened by our ability to liquidate last season's loans, and Europe is much more willing to give us loans than to take our securities outright. When the crop demands are over, which fall heavily upon this center in spite of the growing ability of the West to finance its own crops, this shifting of credits to Europe will probably cease and repayment of the obligations we are no incurring will be inorder. Terrifies Street. For a long time past :t has been the fear of the money market at the coming crop moving period that has terrified Wall street. Now that that apprehension has about worn itself out the early frosts in September are expected by the pessimists Establlsheld 182I. WILSON WHI8KEY.

At the present time, however, the out look for that product, due to the present growing weather, is most favorable; still, it is the corn crop that is the thing to watch, and, as a matter of fact, is about the only obstacle in the way of an improv ing stock market. With a good corn crop, an equally good wheat crop and a fair cot ton yield, the producers are assured of ex traordinary good prices on account of the needs of Europe for our surplus supplies of all of these products. High Prices. This country will occupy thereby an exa traordinary position in obtaining very high prices for exports as against very low prices for imports of sugar and coffee, which are now at the lowest prices on rec ord, and which cannot fail to give us a very large international credit balance for this year. The high prices which the farmers throughout the West and South were able to obtain last year for their pro ducts have given them sufficient money to admit of their opening bank accounts, which has been an unknown thing with most of them in the past, This should diminish the necessity for sending during the crop-moving period as large a supply of actual money for that purpose, and will be a feature of consider able consequence in connection with this winter's supply of money in Wall street.
