NEWS OF SPORTDOM SORER THAN EVER Nebraska Team Gets Another Vet- eran Player Back. THAT GAME AT KIRKSVILLE It Whs v Tough Proposition for the Oornnuskers— "Ploiced to Win." i Nebraska "U" students have succeeded lv getting a $5 rate from Lincoln to Min neapolis and return for the Minnesota- Nebraska football game to be played at Northrop Held Oct. 12. This gives assur ance of a big crowd from Mr. Bryan's stronghold, and rooters and team are coming prepared to . At any rate they are coming, veteran rooters and veteran players, . for another "vet" has shown up on the Lincoln gridiron in the person of Shedd, who is one of the best ioutball men the Nebraska university ever produced. He has been taking gymnasium work in the mornings and is now in excellent physical condition, and Will bend all his energies towards doing his best In the game with Minnesota. With Crandall, Kingsbury and Bender, the back field of the Nebraska eleven will be practically invincible with the addition of Shedd. Minnesota Is, therefore, to have two good games—two hot games—on its hands within the next two weeks, that with Ne braska and that with the "P. & S." stars, which comes next Saturday. That Klrksville Game. As a line on the Nebraska team the Lin coln report of the game with the osteo paths at Kirksville, Mo., Saturday, is in teresting. For some reasons no extended reports of the game have drifted up this way, but the information in the following will be read with interest: From Kirksville the team returned highly incensed at the treatment they received. The cornhuskers declare that they encountered professionalism la its worst form, and that the umpire and spectator* were unfair from the very start. Captain Westover avers that the opposition of the Missourians was the worst he ever encountered, and the team was a wicked one to meet even in Novem ber. He declares that the score of o to 0 in favor of .Nebraska would have been trebled on neutral ground. In punting, the Nebraska men did remark ably well, and ore greatly encouraged on that Boore. . Bender and Kingsbury both made long-distance kl?ks which far surpassed any thing ever done before by a cornhusker. Sixty yards was the distance the plgrtin flew before touching the gridiron on one occasion. Signal work, on the whole, was excellent, and the Nebraakans showed surprising unity of action. The ends did good work all through the game, and the tackling was something wonderful to behold. But the back field men were slow at times and the de fensive work was weak in the first half. All along the line there wae a need of more weight, the osteopaths being particularly strong and husky. Maloney and Shedd showed up well and played a nervy game. Ringer suffered a bad ly sprained ankle and Maloney may be the man delegated to take his place if the In jured member prevents him from practice. All the men showed a marked improvement over last year. Bender carried the ball fast and sure, besides doing excellent blocking. Brew outdid a 240-pound man. Westover, Koehler and Stringer Bhowed excellently the results of the arduous training of the past month. ThroiiK'h Nebraska's I, in**. All the gains of the osteopaths were made through Nebraska's line. The bonerubbers could make gains even when successfully tackled, their great weight forcing the line back. All the end runs attempted by the osteopath!sts were flat faUures. The corn buskers, on the other hand, made heavy gains by slipping around the ends. "Subs" are badly needed by the Nebras kans, especially back-field men. The advent of George Shedd will help greatly to remove thia difficulty. Gophers "Picked to Win." Outsiders seem to be picking the Minne sota team for a winner this year, which may prove a dangerous thing for the Min nesota team. However, the fact exists, whether dangerous or not. The Chicago Chronicle says: Perhaps Minnesota should have the first claim to serious consideration, as the prob able foremost team of the west. Eight of the massive veterans of last year's eleven are back ready for the fray, and not one of these juen weighs less than 190 pounds. The enor mous bulk of the gophers was the thing that gc.ve them victories last year, and this sea son the team will be even heavier. The new men who are out after the positions which have been vacated are larger than the play ers of 1900, while the old men who are back will have hard times holding their places be cause of the influx of excellent material which Coach "WUlk'ms has at his command. A Chicago enthusiast also says: When it comes to material, watch Minne sota. Least year's eleven in Minneapolis sur prised the fans, but this year's team will certainly excel Doc Williams' former star aggregation. Eight veterans have returned, while such a large number of heavy candi date* appear dally at Northrop field that the varsity is sure to average 190 pounds. Even tne second eleven will be a great deal heavier than most all other varsities, and will give the first team excellent practice. Minneapo lis' giant forwards, with Aune, last year's great player, and Rogers, the fleet Indian athlete, as ends, will be relied upon to do all the work, as the back field has only Knowltoo. He is closely pushed for the posi tion by Bidlake. This youngster 1b a rival for O'Uea and Herachberger and is known as a sure goal-kicker. These predictions are based In part upon the fact that there are eight of last year's team in the line-up this year, and that they are of prodigious size. It has been pointed out, however, that veterans do not necessarily make a winning team, though It is believed that veterans of the kind In Minnesota's team this year do make win ning teams, and this belief will continue until it is proved to be groundless. About the weights of the men the public will have to continue to guess, but it seems to be the fact that the "critics" have made the mistake of attributing Minnesota's Whisker ■I suocess of a year ago to the weight, whereas In reality it was due more to splendid t«am work. SOUTH HIGH MATERIAL It Is of the Kind That Maltea Stronar TeaxUß. vProspects at the South high school are rather encouraging, notwithstanding the Cact that very few men of laat year's te&m are back. Coach Fin Gibbon hopes to do much with his men this week, as their first game will be with the Minne apolis academy, Friday, at the practice grounds on ' Twenty-fourth street and Cedar avenue. The men out lndieate that the team will be a strong one of. the star and heavy weight kind. Myrick, the speedy colored boy, does 100 yards in ten flat, and is expected to make a name for himself at half-back. In a scrub game last year he kicked off over the goal posts and into the grand stand three times in succession, thus giving his team a decided advantage. Eckerstrom, last year's center, is a big, heavy man, and has as a rival for his position a new man, Hughs, who is also long on weight. Jorgens and Johnson for guards show up fairly weM, and are expected to make a strong line with the two tackles, Moore and Ostrand. The latter are very aggressive players, and have the proper football spirit. Of the candidates for end, Bang and Rudolph are showing up the bes* Bang especially being strong on the defense. Back of the line, Captain Sloan will play at full, and is a sure ground gainer on line bucks. He will be assisted by Myrick and Hoover as halves. Hoover is of a stocky build and has speed. At quarterback little "Jimmy" Ellis has no rival. He puts up a sharp, snappy game that gained him j much attention last season, and though j quite light, is full of football spirit and j a strong and sure tackier. MORE COACHES FOR YALE Work of Getting Men Into Shape Fr«Kreining Rapidly. JVm* Tork Suit. Special Servieu New Haven, Conn., Oct. I.—Yale's coaching force was augmented to-day by "Billy" Bull, the famous old fullback, and his noted companion, Morris Ely. the quarterback of the ill-fated team of '99. which played a tie game with Harvard and was beaten by Princeton by a s,core of 10 to 11. "Billy" was familiarly greeted and took an active interest in the work of the team and put new life into Wilhel mi, the man who played fullback in last Saturday's game against Trinity and proved not quite so good as was expected. Under the guidance of Bull great im provement is expected, as he is a man who takes readily to coaching. Ely did not find bo much to remedy in De Saulles as quarter and was able to give a large Bhare of his attention to the general work of the back field. Dick Shel don, captain of the Yale track team and right guard on last year's eleven, was out for the first time to-day, but did not don his uniform. He watched the game from the side lines. His recent attack of ma laria has taken off considerable of his weight and the vacation which he soon expects to give himself will doubtless prove extremely beneficial to him and get him into shape for the big games. TEN VETERANS AT X. W. Dr. ItolliMter'M Material the Beat He Has Ever Had. New York San Special Service. Chicago, Oct. I.—With the arrival yes terday of Machesney, right end; Shock center, and Hanson, left tackle, all the members of last year's Northwestern University football team, with the excep tion of Hunter, are new back in Evanaton. Following the victory of Saturday over Lombard a new bunch of candidates ap peared on the field yesterday so that Hol lister now has the best footlball material in the history of the university from which to select his team. Although most of last year's team are back it is by no means certain that they will all be r&gulars on this year's varsity team, for several of them will have hard work to beat out some of the new candi dates. Preparations are already under way to send a big crowd of rootera to Ann Arbor when Northwestern plays Michigan on Oct. 19. SLUMP AT HARVARD Hot Weather to Blame— Tack ling Dummy. etc York Sun Special Servlo* Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 1. —There was a decided slump in the work of the Harvard footoball candidates this afternoon on sol diers' field. It was even more ragged than the work the latter part of last week. In punting and catching punts the poorest exhibition was given that a varsity eleven has put up for many a day. The linemen under Coaches Lewis and Waters were also raggad. Jack McMasters has a new device at tached to his tackling dummy that makes the work as realistic as one would ask for. Instead of having the dummy bal anced by a bag of sand on a pulley arm, the new machine is fastened to a rope by a spring hook, which gives way under a fair tackle and the canvas substitute falls to the ground. FAST AT ANN ARBOR Practice There Is of the Very Swiftest Order. Jt«*t> Tor* JS*U» Sjfeoial Servlo* Ann Arbor, Mich., Oct. I.—Yesterday's scrimmage was the fiercest ever seen on Regent's -field. It took the varsity eight minutes to get a touch down from kick oft. The scrubs kicked off again and Sweeley returned •with a long punt, then the scrubs -went at the varsity hammer and tongs and gained steadily for six min utes for a total of 30 yards. They lost ■the ball on a fumlble, and aided toy Hes ton'9 skirting of the scrubs' left for 45 yards and successive line plunges, the varsity got its second touch down. Yost did not like the varsity defense, and gave tho ball to the scrubs at the 5-yard line and mad« a demand that they should be held* Three times did the reserves try and fail and to get behind the goal posts. STUDY TEAM PLAY Coach ■ Kins Remedying- Faults Dis covered Saturday. 2t«K> Xorh Sim Special Service > Madison, Wis., Oct. I.—The Wisconsin's football eleven did not line up for scrim mage practice yesterday afternoon, but instead put in their hard work at develop ing team play, in which the game with the Medics, Saturday, showed them to be lacking. This is partly accounted for by the fact that several of the men do not yet comprehend the signals, which are said to be rather complicated. '■ Fogg wag kept at quarterback on the first eleven all through the practice and played . hard and fast. Hammerson was tried at fullback on the second eleven. A new heavyweight Joined the squad this afternoon. —(Lindsay of Fox Lake, who stands 6 feet 2, and weighs 213% pounds. He was put in at center on the second eleven, but showed lack of practice. DAKOTA VS. DAKOTA Vanity EleTeu of North and South to Sleet Friday. Special to The Journal. Vermillion, S. D., Oct. I.—One of the best and hardest-fought battles on the gridiron will be the one at Sioux Falls, Friday, between the players from the state universities of South and North Dakota. The gridiron specialists of North Dakota hay« been in practice for several weeka, while the sturdy young men from South Dakota have only been in train ing two weeks. The latter, however, have succeeded in organising a team wfcich THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL 1. for Une-Kinashiug and endurance was never before seen at the South Dakota state university. The ends are not as fast as in former years, but Coach Nor ton considers this no serious obstacle to success, as he does not believe that fast end men are essential for a strong team. The team will be aooompanied to Sioux Falls by a large number of rooters from the city and college. BELOIT HOPEFUL I'reyarliiv fur <.ume With Wiscon- Miv, Oct. 12. Mate Turk Sun SpeoHtl Stririe* Belolt, Wis., Oct. I.—tPfeffer, the new man from Peiwaukee, Wis., whom Coach Hollister has been expecting lor several weeks to arrive, entered school to-day and was out for football practice yester day. His work at center was o>f the or der which will 'win him a place in the team. Next Saturday Cornell college playvs here and aB Coaoh Hollister hopes ; to more than double last year's score, 6 to 0, hard practice 'will be had each night this week. The personnel of the team Which will play the University of "Wiscon sin 'will not be announced until shortly before the game Oct. 12. * Mlnnpiutn-WlHcomln Freshmen. Definite arrangements for the Minnesota- Wißconsin freshmen game have not been made, but there seems to be little doubt that such a game will be played, though the plan to hold it here the day of the Minnesota- Wisconsin varsity game at Madison may fall through. Instead, there is talk. of having the freshmen game played here Friday, Nov. 15, the day before the varsity game, so as to leave the way open for all who wish to at tend the latter game at Madison. Princeton's First. Princeton, N. J., Oct. The football schedule for the tigers will begin to-morrow, when the first game of tho season with Villa Nova will be played. Kelly and Reiter put the men through a severe practice yesterday. Meier was playing at quarter for the varsity and was in old-time form. The coaches are particularly anxious to make a good showing of the team in the first game. ' V Grafton High Team. Special to The Journal. Grafton, N. D., Oct. I.—The high school football team is getting into very good form under the vigorous coaching of Joe Flanagan, the famous full back of the university team. The team is lighter than last year, but it will have a better knowledge of the game and more science. The present line-up is: Mahler, '02, full back; Harris, '02, left half back; Bergnam, '03, right half back; Bates, '02, quarter back; Tallack, '04, center; Tinkle, '02, right guard; Cashel, '03, right tackle; Brosnahan, '04, left tackle; Dahl, '06, right end; Garvey, '05, left end. Some changes may be made before the Park River game, Oct. 6. Football Notes. Humboldt and Fort Dodge, lowa, played a tie game, 0 to 0, at Humboldt, Saturday. In the football game at Marshfleld, Wls., Sunday, between Grand Rapids and Marsh field's Company A team, the latter lost by a score of 23 to 0, Grand Rapids making four touchdowns and three goals. NICHOLAS WAS BEATEN The Hinikahda'i Crack Players Too Much for Boston Man. MiDikahda's best players were too much for Bernard Nicholls. of Boston. After J. M. "Watson, the club instructor, had won out by the score of 2 up and. 1 to play, Nicholls went down before C. T. Jaffray and F. C. Hale, the latter winning by 2 up and 1 to play. Watson played in splendid form both at the abort approaches and in putting. In both rounde of the match he made the fourth hole in four, one better than bogey. Nicholl's work with the iron was admira ble, ho being very accurate in both long and short drives. in his second round •with Watson he beat bogey at the fourth hole. The score: Bernard Nicholls— Out 545645645 In 46444663 •—7B J. M. Watson- Out 554436645 In 46644658 *—78 Watson won by 2 up and 1 to play. In the game with Hale and Jaffray, Nicholls played to "better advantage. At the ninth hole In the first round he made a "wonderful put, a«d was warmly applaud ed by the gallery. He made the hale in three, bogey being four. He was tied with is two opponents at the flifth hole in the final round. On strange links and pitted against two crack players of the club, Nicholls' performance was remark able. iMr. Nicholls left last evening for Chi cago where he will play Willie Smith and Ochterlonie at the Midlothian and Gleii vlew clubs. BROAD GOT DECISION He Bested Dave Sullivan In the Twenty-fifth Round. Kid Broad, of Cleveland, got the decl eion over Dave Sullivan, of New York last night in the twenty-flfth round of the fastest fight ever seen in Louisville. The Kid got down to business and there was a fierce exchange for the next four roundß, Broad ripping in several stiff body blowß. Probably a hundred blows were ex changed in the eighth round, honors be ing about evenly divided. Sullivan was forced to the ropea time and again in the thirteenth round. Sullivan grew stead ily weaker from then on, and round after round the gong was all that saved him. In the twenty-first round he struck Broad rather low in the stomach, and almost put the Cleveland man out. Spears' Bowler* Win.

For | a stipulated price the owner of one of the biggest patches in the melon country has agreed to let the cyclists do what they please with the patch. The distance to the Ferry from. Minneapolis is eighteen miles. Whitney In Sot Sore. William C. Whitney has written a letter to the New York Tribune, denying that his with drawal from the English turf was due In any way to dissatisfaction because of tactics employed against American owners. As a mark of appreciation of the courteous treat ment which he received, and as an expression of his esteem for Lord William Beresford, he has asked the stewards of the jockey club to place with some benevolent racing fund the £6,000 he won as a stake incident to the derby, and the delay in executing the plan has been caused solely by uncertainty as to the moat effective method of associating Lord Beresford's name with the fund. Handled Handler Handily. Joe Cans, the colored fighter, who was charged -with selling out to McGovern at Chi cago some time ago, knocked out Joe Handler of Newark in the first round of what was to 'h«ve be«n a twenty-round go at Trenton, N. J., last night. Handler was knocked down four times by the colored man, and finally went out for good. Konsrht "Bobby" Dobba.

NEXT YEAR'S LEAGUE Magnates of the Western See How the Land Lies. MUCH DEPENDS ON MILWAUKEE The ttr.ici,, Will Enter There If the American Fruucblite In Withdrawn. Chicao, Oct. I.—President Hickey of tha Western baseball league and most of nU associates got together here yesterday and discussed the prospective Chicago team of their lb'OL' organization. No for mal meeting was held, but the magnates came to a pretty thorough understanding. Much of their plans for next season depend on whether the American lets go of Mil waukee. If the Wisconsin town ia given up by Johnson's league, the Western will take it, and will also seize Indianapolis and Louisville. This would give thtyai a stronger and more compact circuit than the one they have already made success ful. Three men, it is said, are after the Chi cago franchise in the Western league. The best of the men now at Denver and Colorado Springs will be transferred to Chicago after the successful applicant has been chosen. The remainder of the team will in all probability be made up of Chi cago players. President Hickey said that he could not make public any plans concerning a prospective Chicago team, as they were not yet definite, but stated that it was a possibility. "I can't tell any plans of the league yet," aaid he, '"for what I might tell would be liable to interfere with the consumma tion of them. At the same time, I will say that a Chicago man. whose name I cannot tell, has asked for a Chicago franchise in our league for a team to lo cate on the North Side. As yet we have given him no answer. We have simply replied that as yet our plans were too in definite to allow our giving him the privilege." A NEW NATIOXAL Formed to Protect lle»rn ationa and Contract* With Players. New York, Oct. I.—President P. T. Pow ers of the Eastern baseball league has given out a statement that in consequence of the National league's abrogation of the national agreement, all the professional baseball clubs in the United states and Canada, excepting the sixteen club mem bers in the National and American leagues have banded together for mutual protec tion and organized an independent asso ciation under the name of the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues, of which Powers is president. Mr. Powers has addressed a letter to the National and American leagues, asking them to co-operate with the new associ ation in respecting the reserve and con tract rights of the clubs and players.

The above membership in the National Association at Professional Baseball Leagues includes practically all the pro fessional baseball clubs In the United States and Canada excepting the sixteen club members in the National and Ameri can leagues. NATIONAL LEAGUE Since winning the pennant, the Pittsburg team has made a very poor showing. The reaction from the strain of the pennant race shows that the players were keyed up to the highest tension. Now they play without spirit, having made only three runs in the last three games.
