BASEBALL WHY HE FINED THEM Beall Says Penalties He Imposed Were Amply Justified. ■ ............111. _ HE EXPLAINS FERGUSON'S CASE A Blacklist for Western League Contract Jumper* Is to Be Instituted. In the Sioux City papers, President Beall of the Minneapolis baseball club justifies the fines levied against some of the millers, particularly against Ferguson. In the Journal of that city he is quoted as saying: I lined Ferguson $50 for talking to some •women on the grounds while a game was go ing on and also soaked him $25 more for indifferent ball playing. I have always insisted that my men must not converse with women around the ball park. I caught Ferguson talking to these women right in plain sight of the grand stand and the. worst of It was he never made a move to stop it when 1 cam© up. That was why he got bis fine. Ferguson did me a scurvy trick at Dcs Moines about the Ist of August. The team had begun to slump and he told the cap tain that he was going, to break his contract and go to California to pitch if he didn't get a raise. Well, there I was. He bad me foul and I gave him the raise. Mr. Beall is further quoted as saying that lie made money last season, both in Minneapolis and on the road. % He is tak ing the lead in a company which is to give Sioux City another telephone system and evidently has coin, . f 01. telephone plants cost money. '.' rV!'; , ". .'.".■ TO USE A BLACKLIST Western Leagrue Contract Jumpers Will Be Disciplined. i It Is reported from Denver that the "blacklist" will be used against the West ern league players who have committed the most serious of baseball crimes— of violating their contracts. George Te beau, the baseball monopolist and one of the leading members of the National as sociation of baseball leagues, says: Elmer Meredith, Walter Hickey, Joseph Kostol, E. I* Bradley, Harry Kane and James W. Sullivan, members of the Denver club, and all others who jumped their contracts or reservations, will be blacklisted at the meet ing of the association of minor leagues to be held Oct. 23 in New York. Such blacklisted players will find their punishment permanent. The minor organizations are willing to help a player of ability to advance, but when they develop a player to the point where he be comes big league timber they are entitled to some recompense. Wueca Finally Vanquished. ■ Charles Chech is evidently a better pitcher than George Wilson, the colored marvel of the Waseca team, who is the best pitcher in the world, according to Perry Werden. Chech and Wilson were matched against each other at Lexinton park yesterday afternoon, and the Wasecas made four hits, while the St. Paul crowd secured ten, including a triple by Holly and a home run by Schafer. The saints had so much good luck in the first inning that they won then and there, but added some more later on, and the game ended with a score of 7 to 1 in favor of the saints. As the latter also won the Saturday contest, they are feeling elated, for the cow boys were compelled to divide the spoils with the colored aggregation. NATIONAL LEAGUE In the first game at Cincinnati, the home team batted as if their lives depended upon it and won by a big margin. In the second game, it was the New York giants who did the heavy stock work. The scores: First Game— R H E Cincinnati 4 0 0 1 0 3 0 5 ♦— 16 1 New York 00000000 o—o4 2 Batteries— and Peitz; Hickman, Ma gee and Wall.

Not one of the eighteen players in the con test between Chicago and Pittsburg failed to get a hit, and small wonder, for there were 1 thirty-seven made, and any "'dub" must have had » show in such a game.

The Chicago team is away down the line, but it is playing some of the best baseball seen in the National League this year. Last Saturday the remnants played a seventeen inning game with the Bostons, in which neither side made a run until the seventeenth inning, when Dexter managed to work around on Long's fumble, a hit by a pitched ball, au •out" and Child's fourth hit. It was one of the most remarkable games ever played in the major league—probably the greatest game ever played.' Saturday's Doingrs. Chicago 1, Boston 0 (17 innings). New York .">, Cincinnati 1.

Having the benefit of a catcher with two hands, the team of one-armed players was too strong for its old rivals -cf the peg-legged team. Talbert pitched a fair game for the latter, fielded everywhere, and. even stole bases with his single pin; but the one-armed men, collectively, were too much for him and in a s-even-innir.g farce made twelve runs while the one-legged team made but nine. There may be another game, as the question of which is the better team has not been settled, ear-h set of cripples havin° taken one each. The Baseball Farm. The Minneapolis Greys, who disputed the .lavas' claim to the 18-year-old champion ship of the city, were convinced of their inability to play in the Javas' class yes terday, being defeated by them, 17 to 7.

DUEL AT LAKEVIEW Opening of Artillery Contest Be tween Gophers and Badgers. MINNESOTANS ARE OUT TO WIN Special Event at the Camp of Great Interest to National Guardsmen. I Special to The Journal. j Camp Lakeview, Lake City, Minn., Sept. 2,s.—Promptly at 12 m. to-day the first I gun was fired in the artillery competition i between teams from the Wisconsin and ■ Minnesota national guard. The Minnesota team has been here since Wednesday and has had daily practice, resulting in sev- I eral good scores. The Wisconsin guns and ammunition arrived on Saturday end the team, in charge of Captain Ludding- j ton, arrived yesterday. Great interest ii I manifest, with everything in favor of Min nesota's team. The contest will take place at a range 1 of 2,500 yards, but the afternoon will be j devoted to preliminary firing mostly. A . great deal depends on the weather, as to . the score, part of the space between the j target and point of firing being covered I with water, and the sun reflecting on the water makes it impossible at times to see the target. A bright morning sun causes i such a haze that it is impossible to see ; the objective point at times. Owing to j ■ this no artillery firing will take place forenoons. This competition was to have ! commenced on the 18th, but the death of President McKinley caused the postpone ment. Range of 2.500 Yards. The artillery has a range of 2,500 yards, so all firing will have to be done at that distance. The firing point is located on an elevation between Lake City and the in fantry camp, and the shots will carry over both camps and an arm of the lake. Each team has its own guns here, which are the 3 2-10 inch breech-loading steel ' pieces. The shells are of the empty 13% j pound plug variety, with smokeless pow der. A regulation artillery land target, 10x20 feet, is to be used. The firing takes place in the afternoon between 12 and 5 o'clock. The markers in the pit will not know which team is firing. The opinion has seemed to prevail that the Minnesota team will not be able to compare with its competitor. The chal lenge originated from Minnesota and was accepted by Wisconsin, and in view of this it was thought that the Minnesota team should have devoted more time to practice firing than has been done. The firing during the encampment did not speak highly of the Minnesota men's abil ity, nor was that of the Wisconsin team any better. Still, the Wisconsin team has . had much practice since, while the Minne sota team has had very little. Conditions of the Content. Each state has a team of seven officers or enlisted men and two alternates. The senior officer present with each team will act as captain, this making Major George C. Lambert captain of the Minnesota team. Each team will furnish two guns i for its own use. The guns will be num bered from 1 to 4, and alternately as signed to each state, firing in rot^on. Each team will provide its own ammuni tion. Each of the seven members of the state teams will fire ten record shots. Two preliminary, or trial shots, not to be counted, will be allowed each man pre ceding his record score. The order of firing will be designed in such a manner I that both teams will fire on the same day, j j and members of opposing teams will fire i j alternately. Barring obstuctions, each member will fire within five minutes from the time the report of the last shot has been received and the target is ready. Shots will be numbered consecutively on tally sheets kept by the markers and scorers. In communication with the pit the name of team members or organiza | tion firing will not be mentioned. When | a member's name is called to fire, no fur then instruction will be given him, He will, however, be informed as to his shots. / The Minnesota guard furnished trans portation for the Wisconsin guard from the state line to Lakeview, and will fur nish subsistence and quarters for the vis iting team during its stay. It is thought that about three days will be necessary for the competition. It is expected that many persons of prominence in national guard circles in other states will be here. Adjutant Gen eral C. R. Boardman, Wisconsin, and Ad jutant General E. S. Miller, North Dakota, are expected to-day, as is also an officer from one of the Illinois batteries, and several others who have signified their intention of attending if possible. IN TENTS_AND BARNS Solway Overcrowded by Rush of Men to Work on Logging Road. Special to The Journal. Solway, Minn., Sept. 23. —Walker & Ake-' ley of Minneapolis, who are building the new Solway & White Ranth logging road, •have 300 men and fifty teams at work. Solway is experiencing a big boom as a result of the construction. Men are sleep ing in tents and barns, as the hotels and lodging-houses cannot accommodate mare than two-third« of the crowd, Twenty-five cars of e<iu raebft and supplies are on the side tracks. It is impossible to get teams enough, and the highest wages are being paid. Fifteen notice of the new road will be laid this fall and work will continue all winter if labor can be secured at a reason able cost. Great preparations are being made by Red Lake to entertain the Indian com missioner and hist party. They are ex pected on Tuesday.—J. C. Bagley of Foss ton has secured a contract to build five miles of the new road.—Lumbermen are making active preparations for the win ter's cut Two hundred million feet of pine will be cut here. AFTER CASH_DAMAGES Pawnee Bill, the Showman, Sned by Fairmont, Minn., Women, Special to The Journal. Humboldt, lowa, Sept. 23.—1t seems that Pawnee Bill's wild west show is in trouble j again. While at Fairmont, Minn., the workmen began taking down the tent be fore the show was over. The raised seats came down with a crash creating a panic and injuring in different degrees several persons. The Vesult is that four Fairmont women have sued Pawnee Bill's show for $50,000 each for damages. At first Pawnee Bill claimed he did not own the show, but at last put the matter into the hands of his attorney and unless set tlement is made the cases will be tried at i Humboldt, Oct. 7, as papers have already been served.

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. BRITAIN AS BORROWER MUST "RAISE THE WIND" AGAIN Cape Colony Reported in a Condi tion of Open or Incipient Rebellion. New York, Sept. 23.—1n financial circles the opinion is growing that there will have to be further borrowing by the Brit ish government as the result of the con tinued fighting in South Africa. The only relief to the drain upon the resources of the nation is the money which is expected to be realized by the Sjile of arms belong ing to those irreconcilable burghers who have left their wives and children to the care of Lord Kitchener. This relief can be only very trifling, however, and it is hardly likely to have an appreciable effect. The newspapers are clamoring for ener getic prosecution of the struggle and are pleased to be able to print Lord Kitchen er's announcement of the capture of Koch's commando and the Carolina com mando. These British successes are re garded as some compensation for the re verses reported last week. General Louis Botha has now lost a large number of his cattle and may find it necessary to alter considerably his plans. Kritzinger en deavored to imitate the example set by Smuts of cutting his way through the British lines. He failed, but Lovat's scouts suffered heavily in keeping him south of the Orange river. The apparently inexhaustible supply of ammunition which the Boers have at their command is the subject of considera ble talk among stock exchange men. Doubtless the stores imported before the war have not yet been entirely used up or captured, but private advices point to a possible leakage at Cape Town and other ports. A serious state of things prevails In Cape Colony from the Orange river to the sea. It is in a condition of open or incipi ent rebellion. A letter from an Express correspondent at Cape Town tells of pilla ging commandoes wandering free from se rious interference, of farms deserted of their rebel proprietors, of armored trains that have been forced to patrol the line as far south as Paarl or Worcester, and of the strengthening of the defenses of Cape Town itself. For the first time it is now known in this country that Scheepers suc ceeded in capturing the loyal delegates on their return to their homes in Oudtschoorn from welcoming the Duke of Cornmall at Cape Town. LOSS TO BRITONS Lieut. Col. Murray Brought Down by a Boer Bullet. London, Sept. 28.—The war office has received the following dispatch from Lord Kitchener, dated Pretoria, Sept. 22: "Kritzinger, while endeavoring to force a passage of the Orange river, near Her chell, at 1 o'clock Friday morning, rushed the camp of a party of Lovatt's scouts. He failed to cross the river, but the scouts lost heavily. Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Murray and Captain Murray, his adjutant were killed. Deeply regret the loss of Colonel Murray, who, throughout the war, had led Lovatt's scouts with great gal lantry. "Under cover of darkness the Boers man aged to carry off a gun. They were promptly followed up and the gun was reco\^red in a smart engagement in which Kritzinger lost two killed and twenty seven taken prisoners." Lord Kitchener also reports that the British captured by the Boers in the am bush near Scheeper's Nek, Sept. 17, have been released and that the British casual ties in the recent Vlakfontein engagement, when the Boers captured a company of mounted infantry and 2 guns, were 1 officer and 5 men killed, 23 men wounded and 6 officers and 109 men taken prisoners. He announces that these prisoners have since been released. WORSFIhaT~IeYFUS POLITICAL PRISONER IS TORTURED Terrible Punishment of Gen. Her nandez, Head "of the Vene zuelan Conservatives. New York, Sept. 23.—According to the story told here by a Venezuelan who reached New York a few days ago, Gen eral Jose Manuel Hernandez, the head of the conservative party in Venezuela, and who is a political prisoner, is under going punishment even worse than that of Dreyfus on Devil Island. His political and military strength was recently shown in the organization of a revolutionary movement on the frontier, under the lead ership of General Rangel Garbiras. This uprising, which President Castro called a "Colombian invasion," was in reality a Hernandez movement, it is said. "Immediately following this," said one of Hernandez's former fellow prisoners, now here, "began the systematic attacks on General Hernandez, which his friends fear will end the veteran's career. The first move was to transfer him to the darkest dungeon in the foul smelling old fort. A huge ball was fastened to his ankle. He is held incommunicado —that is, no one is allowed to see him, nor is he permitted to communicate with the outside world. He is even denied the usual exer cise about the prison yard. His keepers take a fiendish delight in throwing large live rats, spiders and other vermin into his dungeon, particularly when he sleeps. The rations allowed General Hernandez are only half those required by a man of his physique." STEEL CONSOLIDATION INTERRUPTED WORK IS RESUMED Constituent Concers of the Steel Cor poration to Be Con solidated. Pittsburg, Sept. 23.—The reorganization of some of the constituent companies of the United States Steel corporation which was begun soon after President Charles M. Schwab took hold of the greater com pany, is to be carried on again as soon as matters have quieted down from the strike. This was stated by one of the offi cials of the United States Steel corpora tion and it was also said that one of the first moves to be made will be the con solidation of the American Sheet Steel and American Tin Plate companies. Now that the strike is practically over, the steel officials are looking anxiously for the re newal of the original plans. The consoli dation of the Carnegie, American Steel Hoop and National Steel companies, under the management of the Carnegie officials Is taken as the coming model for the other movements of this nature. The business, acocrding to the plans said to have been decided upon, will be con ducted by one set of officers. The plants will be brought closer together and work more in unison. The nature of the ma terial would make such a move, it is said, far more satisfactory and would make pos sible also the practice of greater econo mies in operation. LIVES IN JEOPARDY Horses Were Killed, but Occupants of the Wagon Escaped. Special to The Journal. Lake City, Minn., Sept. 23.—The west bound passenger arriving at 10:03 a. m. to-day struck a wagon carrying Mrs. Kate Pedsinger and Theodore Clemens. Both horses were killed and Mrs. Pedsinger was injured about the back and Clemens was, bruised and stunned. Neither is likely to die. The wagon had been loaded at the mill and Clemens started to cross the track to drive down town. He was squarely upon the track when the shock came. The noise made by the mill had prevented him from hearing the approaching train, and he could not see it for a gravel train and other obstructions. The wagon wat reduced to kindling wood. EXPECTING A RUSH Railroads Anticipating Heavy Im migration Next Spring. SPECIAL AGENTS TO BE SENT OUT AH the Territory Between Minneap olis and the Coast to Be Benefited. Local railroads are commencing the im -1 migration campaign preliminary to next spring's movement which, it is expected, j will make a- high water mark for many years to come. Present plans include the sending of several first-class ■ immigration men into Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, i lowa, and possibly farther, southwest. The Great Northern and Northern Pacific will pay special attention to ; immigration for Washington and Oregon in addition to I their regular work, while the Soo will send a very large number of people into the Dakotas. Many Are Land Looking. ■ • The number of prospectors who are in vestigating the territory along the - Soo both in North and South Dakota is very large. Representatives from various states sent out by prospective colonies, or land syndicates have been numerous in the last three weeks. Aided by the good crop this year immigration into the north west is partly carried along by the good words of these advance agents and of peo pie • who have become settlers in Minne sota or the Dakotas within the. past few years. S Syndicates which made large pur chases of [ land <in the northwest i last spring; are making immigration plans of their own,. and their work at the various county fairs is already beginning to . bear fruit. . In Minnesota, Cass, Crow Wing, Aitkin and, neighboring counties, as | well as the Red River valley will receive- a large number of new settlers early in the spring. Land men predict that as soon as the northern part of the state is tapped by a railroad the rush to that section will be big. % Sew Towns Platted. The Soo has platted five new towns this year and the recent heavy sales .of town lots in those towns are Indicative of the prosperity along the : entire. line of road. The , new towns on the Missouri river ex tension | promise exceptionally well. . All of the main line -towns in the Dakotas have made . some progress this year, and some or them have grown fast. Lignite coal is found to be a big attraction to the intending immigrant,; and the Soo immi gration department is j advertising the big coal beds along its line extensively. The farmer is able to buy coal at the mines for $1 per ton, which goes a long way toward solving the the fuel problem. <■* 1 The; prosperity of Soo territory is due in no small measure to flax, and the profits made off that grain in the past few years have proven a big attraction to eastern - people. A large percentage of the flax acreage in North Dakota is trib utary to the Soo. The thresher is turn ing out in many instances from seventeen to nineteen bushels to the acre, and the farmer is realizing.about $1.25 per bushel. A BRACER FOR RATES A Demand for Cars Keeps the Rail roads Hustling;.* Potato cars are scarce and the demand from the southwest for the Minnesota tu ber is increasing. , St. Louis potato men es timate that they will Import about 3,000 •cars in the next six months and they ex pect to take a i large percentage of this amount from Minnesota. Kansas City deal ers have their lines out for-a total of 1,500 ■cars , for this fall and are scouring the Minnesota market. Omaha is also a big buyer. This immense and immediate po tato demand is a new element in the car situation as each fall usually flnda It. It has necessitated much hustling for extra Tolling stock. In addition to this urgent demand is the Increased call for cars from lumbermen incident to the big lumber, trade through the middle'west. The demand for building ■material is urgent from every &e«tlon of •the Mississippi valley and the northwest. It means a big cut of logs during the com ing winter. Flour shippers are also adding •to the merrimenlt and keeping the- roads on the hustle for care. A prominent freight ■man declares that the best guarantee against indiscriminate rate-cutting is the car shortage resulting from Minneapolis!' constantly Increasing trade. September has been a* big month with the regular, merchandise shippers. Minne apolis wholesalers have brought S3 1-3 iper cent more, goods to Minneapolis- for distribution than on any previous Septem ber. Trade has been tremendous tv mandsv- from the newly settled districts throughout the northwest have been sur prising. | The Soo and the Minneapolis & St.. Louis have shown a big increase in this line of traffic, while the ,trans'oon>tinental linos are receiving many profitable "long hauls" from Minneapolis to Montana and '.'-'•"'' '• ■"';••-'-': bit '~ 9*TO"B!»tr»+!T> that Minneapolis Is "to play a prominent part in the trade of the north coast states and Alaska.

One notable feature in the car situation .Is the factt that the small wheat shipper Is being reasonably well taken, care of, The roads are making every effort to distribute oars equitably, and up to date the farmer shipper has had few kicks to register. Steel, too scarce Rail Laying? Delayed on a. North- Western Extension. Special to The Journal. Redwood Falls, Sept. 23.—1t is an nounced that the Western Minnesota di vision of : the Chicago & North-Western, organized .to construct a railroad from Evan, Brown county, through the center of Redwood county, touching Wabasso,;and connecting with; the North-Western at Marshall, will not lay the track this year, owing to the scarcity of steel. Grading on the line is well advanced and will be fin ished ■ before cold weather sets In. \ Thf townsite agent . has.' located the townsites. The first town west of Evan is to be on section 33. Three Lakes, the quarter purchased for the purpose hav ing previously been owned vby J. W. Pro kosch. : The next is to be a side-track sta tion, located on section 27, New Avon, about four miles : east of Wabasso. West of Wabasso the first town will be on sec tions ■ 21 and 22, Granite § Rock, and the westernmost town in Redwood county will be on sections 16 and 17, Westline. ■ The Western, by building this line and establishing these towns, merely i fills in a gap in Its own 1 territory, and the j new towns must necessarily be injurious ; to the new towns on its Minnesota & lowa division, inasmuch as it cuts the trade re lations of some of them very badly.
