Jack Hendricks, formerly outfielder for the Spokane team, is now playing with Washington. The Chicago Journal plays up an inter view from Hendricks, in which the for mer Indian gives a glowing account of this country and of the players. The it terview is as follows: "Of all places to play hall in," says Johnny Hentlrcks, the local lad who re turned from Spokane yesterday. "the far West is the bird. I had heard of western hospitality, western lavishness, and the general carefree maners of the wild and woolly, but I couldn't believe it till J g1.t into the thick of it. Then I discovered that it is twice as swift as I had supposed. "The game of ball is played with pcr feet honesty out there. although the bet ting is iimmense, and vast sumlis changc: hands on the battles.

MINOR LEAGUERS ARE TO MEET BIG FELLOWS Final Conference in Chicago Next Week to Adopt Rures to Govern Base ball All Over America. BY As.FOCIArrn PRrs. Chicago, Sept. 5.-Representatives of the minor leagues will meet with the na tional baseball commission in Chicago next week to consider the final adoption of a national agreement to govern base ball throughout the country. The actual º date of the meeting will be left to August Hermann of Cincinnati, chairman of the national commission, but it is more than probable that the conference will be held early the coming week at the auditorium. The major leaguers have provided a substitute which they have already for warded to llermann and which the na tional commission, composed of Hermann and Presidents Johnson and Pulliam, will consider at a meeting in Chicago. The leaguers of the minor leagues will also come here to press their claims. President Hickey would not talk for publication regarding the agreement pre sented by the minor leaguers, but it is believed that it is radically different from the one adopted at Buffalo. The minors will undoubtedly try hard to have their views substituted for the old one, but it is thought decidedly doubtful if many changes will be accepted by the big leagues.

Burote, Mont, SIDE LIGHTS ON THE DAY'S SPORT NEWS It may be that Jack Monroe's excuse that he has not sufficient time to train and his demand that his match with Jeffries he put off until January in consequence has substantial foundation, but it sounds like hot air. What reason has he for not being in good condition, or at least in such shape that six weeks would fit him for the ring? Our own Jack has not proven the howling success in the ring that was predicted when he managed to stay four rounds with a fat and uncondi tioned champion. Ilis Ilutte friends were glad to see him make soime money out of the reputation he received, though some of the reputation was undeserved and the product of exaggerated newspaper reports. Nevertheless there is no denying the fact that in the months that has passed silnce the memorale night in Ilutte's Itroilway tlheater hle has (tone absolutely nollthing Ito justify his claim to a conlulandl inKg plition in pugilistic circles.

Los Angeles, Sept. 5.---Frankic Neil of San Francisco, champion bantamweight pugilist of the world, last night defeated Billy D)e Coursey of Los Angeles in z5 rounds. I)e ('ourney was not knocked out. but . BILL!' D)1 COURSEY. was so clearly defeated, that, fearing the possibility of an accident, Captain Auble of the police interfered, instructed Referee Eyten to stop the fight and declare Neil the winner. Neil was the aggressor at all times and, while De Coursey made one of the gamest fights ever seen here, the little champion held him safe at all stages. There was a great deal of clinching and covering up at close range, bt whenever the referee separated them: Nvil was tipuin his man immediately, VALUABLE AUTO DESTROYED New ork, 3ept. 5 --One of the mast valuable .utoaloaile a in the wwrld, a iacing macline imported from lrance and a..cmr signed to David Bishop of Lee, Marsn., has been destroyed by tire, resulting from the explosion of the gasoline tank on a car float near the New York, New Haven & Hartford pier, , ast river.

Lipton, however, would allow no protest to be made, though it is said the theft of his silverware did annoy him greatly. A funny part of the thing was the msa. ner in which the yacht's supplies were raided. On the first day a drizzling rain fell. Some of the visitors on the Erin to protect themselves borrowed caps from the crew. Not a cap was returned. But Lipton is game and still persists that Americans are the finest people on earth. That is because he realizes that these so-called society people are not rep. resentative Americans. Mickey Lynch, Butte's new third base man, is an old Montana boy who devel-. oped as a fast player mn this state. Lynch will join the team next Wednesday at Seattle. Time was when l.ynch wrestled trunks and grips as bnaggageman of the it., A. & I'., at Anaconda, and betweenl trains went across the track to old Lake park and batted up flies for the boys from the switch shanty and vicinity. tle and Jimmy MclIale, another Anaconda lad, presently were the backbone of the Ana conlda amteurs. Then, in irjoo, when W. Ii. Lucas organized the Montana State leagute, both Mcllale and I.ynch were given a chance in the outfield by Jack (;rim, Anaconda's first manager. Both made good in professional company, Lynch playing center and Mcllale left field. l.ynch was especially strong with the stick. The following season he quit smnsh ing baggage for good and went to Tacoma in the new Pacific Northwestern league, the extension of the Montana State league. So well did'he do there that in t,,so Chi cago grabbed him, along with some other likely talent from this part of the land. National league comlllpally, however, was a bit too fast for the Anaconda boy with the sun-kissed hair and he drifted to Min neapollis, where he did well last seasoni with the Millers. This year he has been' playing again with Tacoma. lie is a fast, earnest, hard player and if he has a fault it is a County Cork temper that gets away with him at times and causes him to make rellmarks to the umpire that are prone to irritate that gentleman. L.ynlch will be wel comed by his old Montana friends. After I.undhohm's nasco of yesterday the management of tile Butte team gave him his release. Several trials have failed to convince the fans or the management that he is a phenom. Roach and Tozier prolhally will be the pitchers in this afternoon's game-pro-:, vided the rain does not prevent it being played. SIl THOMAS MAY COME OVER AGAIN HE SAYS IT IS NOT TRUE THAT HE HAS DECIDED TO QUIT TRYING FOR CUP. WILL BE A NINETY-FOOTER Sir Thomas Has Picked the Size of the Next Challenger and Will Look About for a Builder. DY ASSO('IAII'D I'tRESa. New York, Sept. 5.-Sir Trhomas lipton is still undecided whether to challenge again for the America's cup. lie said yes terday: "If 1 can find a man who can design a boat to beat the Yankee sloop I shall chal lenge again. To say that I will not chal lenge again is untrue. If I do challenge again it will be with a go-footer." Both Shamrocks were towed to Erie basin yesterday. They will be jury rigged and start for England in tow in about ten days. Sir Thomas said yesterday that he would not sell either of them. INDICTMENT IS RETURNED Denver, Sept. S.-The Republican to day says that an indictment has been re turned by the grand jury against Thomas J. Maloney for offering a bribe to City and County Clerk Julius Aichel in con nection with the contract for the tran scription of the records for the new Arapahoe county. Mr. Maloney is a prominent politician. SPECIAL RATE, ANACONDA TO COLUMBIA GARDENS. SBeginning August is, and every Saturday and Sunday thereafter until further notice, the B., A. & P.

With men playing unaccustomed posl tions, crippled almost beyond belief and with a dead one in the box until the dam ag: was done, Butte went down to defeat before the aggregation of ball-tossing Mor anons yesterday. It was a bad licking, ts to 5. But at that the game revealed some thing of interest. While it showed that Lunldbohm as a pitcher might do for the \Valkerville team, league company is too fast for him. The game also developed that IRunkle, ordinarily shortstop, has some kinks all his own as a pitcher. Largely through the evil pitching of Mr. I.undbohm, Salt Lake acquired speed ily nine large runs before a change was male in the delivery end of Butte's bat tery. Then, no one else being available, Rankle was chased in from short to pitch. lie filled out the remaining six innings, in which time he allowed but two hits. Three runs were acquired by the visitors, however, none of them earned. They came chiefly through the awful fielding done by the Butte players at positions in which they had never even been halter broke. IBUTTE. All. R. It. l'O. A. E.

LANGLEY'S AIRSHIP IS BADLY WRECKED AGAIN Plompt Action Alone Saves Entire Body From Destruction - May Be Repaired by Monday. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Widewater, Va., Sept. S.-The pros pective launching yesterday of Professor Langley's big aerdrome was abandoned at 4 o'clock after the port propeller, re volving about Goo times a minute, had wrecked itself among the rods and bars of the machine. Both main supporting rods of the airship were bent to a right angle. Other slight damage was done. The ac cident was the result of a change occur ing in some unexplained manner in the orbit of the blades. But for the prompt action of Professor Manley, who was in the navigator's car, in shutting off his engine, the aerdrome might have been hurled front the superstructure and en tirely wrecked. At the time the accident occured the newly repaired engine was being tested. It works much better than it did yester day and the accident was very distressing to the experts, who greatly desired a test either yesterday afternoon or this morn ing. After inspecting the damage Professor Langley decided to return to Washington. The machinery may be repaired by Mon day.

That's AltI THE WILSON DISTILLING CO., Baltimore, Md. M'CLOSKEY SAYS LUCAS ISALLRIGHT FORM1ER BUTTE MANAGER SPEAKS A GOOD WORD FOR THE PRESIDENT. Manager John McCloskey comes to the defense of President Lucas and says he is the only man for the head of the league next year. The one manager in the league who has been fined more often and who has been out of the game on more occa sions than any other manager in the Jeague, is the man who praises the president for those very rules that caused McCloskey's troubles. In speaking of the next president of the Pacific Northwest league MoClos key declared: "In my opinion, no better man can be secured than Lucas. He is a strict dis ciplinarian. He enforces order and gen tlemanly conduct on every field, and that should immortalize him. Baseball is a noble game, but its fate with the public depends a great deal upon the gentlemanly actions of the players and that in turn de pends upon the president. "There has never ben a man at the head of any league who has stood back of his umpires better than Lucas. His officials have fined me snore and put me out of the grounds on numerous ocasions, but I knew it was for the best interests, and I paid my fines and went on with the game. He has given good, clean baseball to the pa trons of the game, and that is the life of the sport. When the battle is raging a player or a manager may forget himself and Lucas is the best of the lot to make him keep a cool head. "In my opinion, the Pacific Northwest league can exist next year with either six or eight clubs. I am in favor of putting Ogden in the circuit, and that town will be on hand to get in the game. It is a good ball town and but a short distance from Salt Lake. "It looks to me, unles some arrangement is made with the National association, that the Pacific Northwest league team would also be put in in Tacoma, and it should do well. My choice of a circuit would be iSe' tie, Tacoma, Spokane, Butte, Salt Lake and Ogden. President Lucas will arrive in Spokane tomorrow, and he will know more about the affairs of the league."
