II W1eiIS IN SIGHi
TO MICHIGAN / STRIKE END OF SIX MONTHS OF IDLE NESS FINDS NOTHING GAINED BY EITHER SIDE. Calumet, Mich., Jan. 18.-With the end of the first six months of the cop per strike, operators and union miners appear to be no nearer an agreement than they were when the struggle be gan on July 23 last. The continued mild weather has confirmed labor leaders in the belief that they will be able to hold the striking forces intact throughout the winter. They assert that the Western Federation of Min ers is prepared to support the local organization through a long contest, if necessary. The mine owners maintain that the backbone of the strike has been brok en and if the strikers do not return to work without further delay all their places will be filled. "The fight has just begun," was the assertion today of James Iouch. To gether with James A. Short, Mr. Rluch is here representing the Amer 'ican Federation of Labor. IHe said as many men were quitting as were returning to work and those outsid ers who were brought in to fill the strikers' places would desert at the first sign of warm weather. The special grand jury which is in vestigating disorders growing out of the strike is expected to resume its work tomorrow. Some, disposition is to he made this week of the $30,000 collected among the citizens of this district for the re lief of the families bereft of some of its members by the Italian hall dis aster on Christmas eve. The refusal of Charles H. Moyer, president of the Western Federation of Miners, to ac cept this money' on behalf of the suf ferers was followed by his deportation on the night of December 26. If the local committee is unable to distribute the fund among those for whose benefit it was raised, the con tributions will be returned to the donors. GENERAL SALAZAR'S BOND IS INCREASED Santa Fe, N. M., Jan. 18.-In the United States district court here on motion of United States District At torney Summers Burkhart, Judge William H. Pope increased the bond of General Jose Ynez Salazar, under arrest at Marfa, Texas, for violation of the neutrality laws, from $1,000 to $5,000. Salazar, while at liberty under $1,000 bond, fled .from the United States,' returning to Mexico. He will have a hearing at Marfa tomorrow and if he fails to furnish the increased bond, will be brought here and held in jail pending his trial. It is said that Salazar may also be called upon to explain why he ordered the execution of Thomas Fountain of Las Cruces, after Secretary of State Knox had sent him word not to shoot the New Mexico citizen. Secretary Knox told Salazar at the time that if harm be fell Fountain he would hold him (Sal azar) personally responsible. FEDERALS STILL ACTIVE. Chicago, Jan. 18.-The Federal league continued its raid .n the pre serves of organized Ibaseball today, it was announced by President (lilmore. but, in accordancle with a statemenlt tl issued after the meeting of yesterda., the names of the players signed were not announced.

High Spot in Next Season Will Be East-West Clash Grantland Rice Discourses on 1914 Gridiron Battles Before Closing Football Dope for Year and Looks Toward Harvard-Michigan Battle as the Prize Affair of the Campaign. (By Grantland Rice.) In so far as all outlying sections of the American landscape are concerned, the high-spot in 1914 football will ar rive on the afternoon of October 31/ when "Hurry Up" Yost leads hit Michigan array into the Harvard stadium for the best test yet offered of the eastern system against the western. Yet the advance odds are so over whelmingly with Harvard for this battle that it is quite doubtful wheth ,r after all the test will be an accur ate one. Rival Prospects. Harvard next fall returns nine vet ,rans from a championship team: lichigan returns three. Harvard loses wo regulars; Michigan, eight. The Crimson machine returns its entire hack field, with Logan at quarter, Malhan and Bradlee at halves and Brickley at full. I'or line play it re urns Hardwick, end; Gilman, tackle: Pennock and Cowen, gulards, and otnucy, center. Among her regulars Michigan re turns Hughett, quarter; (halt, half, and Lyons, at end. Traphagen, a for ward who played in three games, will also 1,e on hand, with Captain Rayns ford, who although elected captain was a substitute last "all and partici parelt in only three iattlcs. Michigan's Handicap. This situation, of course, puts Mich igan tinder at heavy handicap. Yost must fill at least seven open gaps, while liaughton, in addition to eight or nine veteran regulars, has a fine list of reserves in Withington, Curtis, Whitney, Coolidge and McKinlock. who figured in several games last fall and who will be ready to step in at a moment's notice. It takes no vast fiund of export tes timony to figure that Michigan's task for 1914 is ia monumental one. Yost mist round out almost an entirely new line-up to compete against one of the greatest machines of the game almost intact. Good Fight On. The situation, however, Isn't its des perate for a close, hard-fought game as things might look. The odds against Michigan winning are tre mendous. But, there is still enough Wolverine material in sight for Yost to offer considerable rebuttal. In ad dition to Ilughett. fGalt and Lyons, his regulars, he has a first-class for ward in Traphagen, who has had some experience, and he has at least three good men on his freshman squad. These are Maulbach, halfback; Nieman, center, and Splawn fullback. Yost regards Maulbach as one of the best young halfbacks in the game. Working with Galt, almost the equal of Craig, and with Hughett, another star, this insures at least three first class people itn the backflcield. Lamar Splawn, another hack, is a wonderful punter and passer and if he can be developed further in other ways will round out ua backfield to compare favorably with even the Brickley, Ma han, Bradlee combhination at the run ning and kicking game. Yost's entire line wits swept away and his main job will be rebulilding this part of his machine. If he can turn this trick the battle may he closer than the a.dvance dope suggests. We have talked over 1914 prospects at length with Yost, but he says there Is so much to he done before he can round out any sort of a machine that he doesn't care to make any prophecy as to the Ilarvard-Michigan outcome. Systems. llaugihton will surely stick to his samne sauccessfull system and Yost will bring on the western system in all its glory. This will insure a number of interesting mnmllents and obser\va tions theretin. But this Michigan-Ilarviird battle isn't tile only onlle by several leagues. Another contest worth oblserving early in the year will he the clash between larvard and W. and J. This latter institution also returns a veteran nma chine anld one of spliced and power. If' .ou're catching, it's a wild pitch. |rofessnr t 'arr-Very good. Luke I .llt luke, define an error.

Herman Reed-If the pitcher is over six feet high, the manager shoulld say: "Old pal, the ump is giv ing you a rotten deal. Save up the wing for tomorrow." If the pitcher i a small Inan, or a kid, the manager should say: "Getoutathis, you yellow hound!" Professor Carr-Admirably said. Hector Foote, what is a display of genius? HIector Foote-A bonehead that gets by. Professor Carr-Right. Benny Mace, what is a bonehead? Benny Mace-A display of genius that falls down. Professor Carr--Excellent. Charley Sturr, what is the proper definition of eternity? Harvard will have her hands full here-probably a tougher battle than she ,will draw with Michigan. Harvard-Yale - Princeton. The year 1914 at the start looks far better for Harvard and Princeton than for Yale. The Blue reservation loses about seven regulars, and Hinkey has the busiest little autumn ahead that he has ever known. Com ment upon Harvard's outlook is un necessary. Brickley, Mahan, Hard wick, Pennock and Gilman are a first-class machine without further help. Princeton, however, will be in shape to give Harvard a battle to the wire. The Tigers' return material for one of their greatest elevens and as a better policy will be installed this Tiger-Crimeon meeting will be one of the best games ever fought in the cast. Princeton has a number of things in her favor. She returns the hulk of her 1913 squad. She has added to this list several stars from her last freshman team, athletes of high ranking, And with all this speed and power trained for aggressive, open play and for greater variety in attack, the Tiger machine has its best chance in many years. On advance form the IHarvard Princeton battle will be an even fight, and the odds are that both will upset "arle unless the Blue kicks in with another miracle or Hinkey takes up a much better system than Yale has known for many years. In the West. Chicago, Wisconsin and Minnesota should fight out another interesting season for the conference title; as each eleven returns sufficient ma terial to insure good football. Stagg returns a number of good men and all the old man of the Mid way needs is something to build on. Giiven a fair start he can be depended upon to go the rest of the distance. All in all, the 1914 campaign should be one of the most interesting ever known in so far as all sections are (( nrerned. There will be a greater number of high-class contests all around than any year has drawn within remembrance. There also will he a big advance in the more open game and a clearer test of the two sy.sems advocated by leading elevens in the -cast and west. The forward pass will get a much fairer test and will be put to use in a scientific rather than in the haphazard fashion which has governed its usage entirely too much. YANKEE ALLEN WORKS WITH FRANK DELANEY One of the principals in the Allen Cummings fight, to be pulled off here a week from tonight, will be in ac tive training for the bout all week in Missoula. Yankee Allen and his man ager have arranged to use the rear of the Rochester pool hall as a train ing quarters and here the pug will be on exhibition every afternoon, and all who are interested are welcome to see him work. F'rank Delaney will be his sparring partner. Delaney had one go here some time back and is known to local fight fans. COBB STAYS WITH DETROIT. Detroit, Jan. 18.-Ty Lobb will not become a Federal leaguer. This as surance came today from Royston, Ga., in a telegram from the chaimpion bats man, thus setting at rest spelculation as to whether C'obhl might desert the I)etroit club.

If Missoula had not withdrawn gi from the Union league there would w have |been an honest-tO-goodness tem- le pest at the meeting of the magnates, tl according to W. L. Murphy, president e: of the lately deceased Highlanders, ci who has just returned from Butte. c Mr. Murphy went officially to inform f; the rulers of the circuit that the Highlander unles wouldn't appear on p the league diamonds this summer. g While there he discovered that Mis- li soula, by withdrawing; escaped the ' indignity of a forced exit. Great h Falls, according to Mr. Murphy, was C In the same boat. b A Frame-Up. The president's info is that the g magnates from the southern or dicta- t torial end of the circuit had a cold a deck ready. They didn't want the league to extend all over the great h northwest and were prepared to ii threaten withdrawal if Missoula and a Great Falls weren't ousted. Of course, I the two Montana cities couldn't have a been forced out, but the rebellion of c Salt Lake, Ogden, Boise and Murray a would have made a sweet little wreck out of the league. c At the time of the directors' de- f cision to quit, The Missoulian sag CONFERENCE IS HELD ON THE SAVING OF RADIUM WITHDRAWAL OF VALUABLE LANDS IN COLORADO IS OP POSED BY SOME. Washington, Jan. c.--An executive c(onference on legislate.,n proposed for the conservation of leiblic lands con taining radium was li, d today at the interior depa rtment by Secretary I;ane, Chairman Foster of the house committee on mines atnd mining, the Colorado delegation to congress, Rep resentative Brown of New York and Thomas Henahan, conmnissioner of the Colorado bureau of milles. 'Thile ohject was to I concile the op position of the west ern men to the Foster hill for the withdrawal from entry of lands that contain radium and it was predicted that a satisfac tory compromise wouldl e reached. There will be othr conferences. 1 Secretary Lane and Representative Foster urged immedia;te legislation to - prevent the radium ore lands from tall - ing into the hands of foreign monop olists and pointed to the scarcity of 1 radium, its almost fabulous price and its great value to surgery. Senator V Thomas, Representatives Taylor and ? Keating of Colorado and Commissioner e Hanahan opposed the segregation of d any more land, contending that it would retard development of the state g to that extent. r The conference agreed, however, if that foreign exploitation of radium from Colorado and Utah should be' gested that the magnates probably would welcome the contraction of the league. Evidently, they did. Now the southerners have four of the six clubs in their neck of the for est with Salt Lake getting almost continuous ball. It makes a handier circuit out of it, and Salt Lake will fill the treasury for another year. If local fans had seen fit to sup- I port baseball and if Great Falls had gone to the league meeting with a little kale, the Union association would have gone to pieces, if this dope is correct, and with Helena, Butte, Great Falls and Missoula unencum bered the advocates of a state league wouldn't have had much trouble in lining up a circuit. As it is, Utah gets the benefit of the Montana towns' crowds and only the small fry are left for the air-castle league. President Murphy believes that the local club might have sold some of its players if it had so desired. Now, of course, all hands go to Murray. Inasmuch as that is little less than a Salt Lake berth no one ought to complain. Blank probably will man age the club. Mr. Murphy didn't attend the offi cial meeting. He tendered Missoula's farewell address and then departed. -G. P. S, legislated against and that there should he no monopdly and there was a disposition to seek ground for agree ment. The house mines committee will hear tomorrow Dr. KellY of Baltimore in advocacy of the Foster bill. Dr. Gaylord of New York also will testify. J. M. Flannery of Pittsburgh and others interested in exporting radium are here to attend the hearing. SPORTS HEADLINERS CUT SHORT Tinker says he would have stag gered Walter Johnson with a Federal salary offer. Who doesn't like to be staggered that way? Can't Recall His Name. Once there was a boxer who ad mitted he was licked in a no-decision fight. The Naps have their eyes on Russ F1ord, and also want a right-handed ot tflielder. Slory goes that Jack Hendricks was e bounced from the Giants because he n hit too hard.

It is very unlikely now that Otto - Miller will sign up with the Feds. f President Ebbets has offered him an d $800 raise in salary. d Hughey Jennings is one who be r lieves that in onions there is strength. )f He spent his vacation down in Ber it muda. Charley Barrett, Yankee trainer, r, says that Manager Chance has his eye n on fifth place and is sure that be M will land there. HEARINGS FAVORED1 BY PRESIDENT WILSON HE THINKS PENDING ANTI-TRUST BILLS SHOULD BE WELL DISCUSSED. Washington, Jan. 18.-President Wilson today put the finishing touches on the message dealing with the anti trust reform which he will read to a joint session of congress Tuesday. The administration? believes legisla tion should be enacted promptly, not only to correct evils in modern busi ness, but to construct a sYstem of government assistance that would stimulate business development. The president intends to emphasize the necessity for a friendly spirit in congress in approaching-the task and in line with his attitude he favors publih hearings on the hills. He op-I posed hearings on the tariff and the currency measures as he believed con gress and the country had made up its mind on the detaill and that hearings meant unnecessary delay. Summed Up. Summed up, the administration pro gram on trust reform for the present session of congress covers the follow ing points: One-Skipplemental legislation to the Sherman anti-trust law, without amending the Sherman law, certain additions are intended, including pro hibition of secret price agreements, underselling and other means of sti fling competition. Two-The prohibition "of interlock ing directorates. Three-The creation of an interstate trade commission merged with the bu reau of corporations and acting partly as a board of conciliation in helping corporations to adjust themselves to the mandates of the law. Four-The prohibition of holding companies. Five-The supervision by the inter state commerce commission of the is suance by railroads of stocks and bonds and the uses to which funds so obtained are put. 'Six-Individuals to benefit by proof of illegality established by govern ment suits. At present a person or corporation injured through an al leged unlawful combination is required to prove the illegality of the combi nation, regardless of decisions secured by the government. Seven-Provision for the punishment of individual offenders, including not only the persons at the head of cor porations practicing unlawful acts\but those individuals responsible for the direction of unlawful restraint of trade.
