WORLD OF" SPORT. CHICAGO OB MICH, One of Them to Be on Next Year's Minnesota's Schedule. NO GAME WITH NORTHWESTERN R««t of Schedule as Yet In Doubt- Game With \\l«eon»iii Probable. Tha football schedule makers are hard at ■work, but so far as Minnesota is con cerned have not made much progress as yet. There is ground, doubtless, for the talk of a game between Miunesota and Michigan. Chicago writers are guessing that the game will be played between tha two teams at Chicago on Thanksgiving Day. But this is doubtful. The rela tionship between Minnesota and Chicago, despite the fact that they played no game this year, is very friendly and it is hard ly likely that Minnesota would offend Chi cago by playing in Chicago Thanksgiving Day In the face of Chicago's severe criti cism of Michigan and lowa for a similar "tjffensa" this year. A game with Michi gan, however, it is understood, is not an impossibility for next year. Likewise there Is a possibility of a game with Chicago. This seems almost a certainty, though no definite announce ment has yet been made. How the "tak ing on" of Michigan and Chicago wou' . affect the chances of a game with Wiscon sin, is an open question. What Minneapolis will do with Nebraska, lowa and Illinois next j-ear is also doubtful. But Northwestern is going to drop Min nesota, or Minnesota is going to drop Northwestern. At any rate there will be no game next year between the maroon and gold and the purple. The purple, It is said, will make a switch and meet the badgers instead of the gopherg about the middle of the season. For Thanksgiving Day next year, a Chi cago dispatch says, the teams will be paired off as follows: Chicago-Wisconsin at Marshall field, Michigan-Minnesota in Chicago, North western-Nebraska at Lincoln, and lowa- Illinois at Champaign. But that is only a guess. Michigan !has become possessed of the idea that her football men must meet either Harvard, Yale or Princeton next year, and an eastern game will doubtless be arranged. If Michigan plays Wisconsin next year it will probably be at Ann Arbor or De troit. It is said that the only thing that stood in the way of a Michigan-Wisconsin game this year was the selection of a place, Michigan holding out for a game near home. Northwestern's other eames next year with conference teams will be played -with Chicago, Illinois, Purdue, Beloit and Knox. The Illinois and Purdue games will be at Evanston, as will also Knox and Beloit, and Chicago 'will probably be played on Marshall field.

Speoial to The Journal. La Crosse, Wis., Dec. 2.—With the approach of winter, the local ski runners are agitating the question of reviving the sport in La Crosse. Several years ago La Crosse had one of the best ski clubs in the northwest, and hoido of the La Crosse men carried off high honors at the tournaments held at Red Wing and other cities. The flub was made up mostly of Norwegians and had a large membership, but many of the best runners left the city. Hans Amundson and S. Bor reson weut to the Klondike: Louis Thoreson, who made a splendid record, died, and an other member named Hemmestvet, who held the highest record, was injured. The hills in this vicinity are admirably adapted to ski running and this year the La Crosse lovers of the sport will reorganize. Southwestern "Champa." Thanksgiving Day, the Tracy High school football team played the Gary Athletic team, closing her schedule for the season with a victory by a score of 65 to 0.

THE NORTH HIGH REPLIES TO STATEMENTS FROM WIXONA Football ilauagtr Say* Xo Game \\ as •scheduled With Buys Down the River. The North High echool boys feel the -good name of their football team has been called in question by the management of the Winona high school team in state ments relative to a Thanksgiving game, said by Winona to have been scheduled by the two teams, tho North High boys, therefore, say It should be understood at 'the outset that no such game was ever scheduled. Their manager adds: Early in the season letters were exchanged statins our willingness to play such a game. We did not hear from Winona further con cerning the matter then. Later it was learned that Winona was negotiating for a game with Central high of this city for the same date. It was decided that our game with Central high of this city should close the season, and the list of games handed to the principal by the manager did not contain v game with Winona. Accordingly after the Central game our team went out of training. Soon after this game Winoua- wrote our prin cipal claiming a game. This was tiie first he knew of the matter, and he wrote a let ter explaining the situation and stating that no game with Winona could be had, under tho circumstances, but if Winona aspired to championship honors and would play aud de feat a team of the class of Central high, of Minneapolis it would then be our duty to defeud the title of champions, and that we stood ready to do so. As to the St. Paul Central school being re fused a game, let it be said that the North high management tried its beat to secure a game with that school, but was offered one date, that of Oct. 11, or none. We had preparations under way for the East Side game for that day. What claim had they for a date since Nov. 15? It was claimed that the North Side schedule was too light for a team claiming champion siiip honors, but it must be remembered that our schedule of eight games is only one less than that played by Central high of this city. Prior to the Wiuona-Central game we made no claim to the championship, but in view of our victory over Central and Central's easy victory over other teams, including Winona and Chicago, we claim a clear title to the championship of the northwest. ROTHWELL. OX STAGE Young- Coruett Will Play to Gallery Ten Weeks. New York, Dec. 2.—Johnny Corbett, manager of Young Corbett, said last night that as soon as Dave Sullivan posts the $5,000 which he says he will bet he can beat McGovern's conqueror, the latter will post a forfeit to fight Sullivan. Sullivan's money must be up, however, before any attention will be paid to him. Last night Young Corbett began a week's engage ment at the Dewey theater, where he gave a representation of his fight with Mc- Govern. After this week he will make a •ten-weeks' tour of the country, and then, returning here, will be ready to make matches for more fights. SHAMROCK DAMAGED Trip Across Atlantic Would Have Been Uooeeroai. New York, Dec. 2.—Work will be begun to-day on the building of a house over Sir Thomas Lipton's Shamrock 11. The haul ing up was accomplished successfully Saturday afternoon. It was discovered that the hull had settled perceptibly on thes tarboard side next the stays. It is believed that the damage was sustained, in the severe squall which struck the boat one afternoon in the Horseshoe a week or so before the races. The belief now is generally entertained among those who have examined Shamrock 11. that had an attempt been made to take her home this fall she would never have crossed the At lantic without foundering. Many of the braces running from the bilges to the deck are found to be badly bent and tho bronzo plates also are corroded to such an ex tent as to seriously impair the seaworthi ness of the boat.

A Typical Crowd in Front of The Journal Building-, Watching Minnesota's Fortune* on the Gridiron Away Front Home. —Photograph by Sweet. The All-Western Fiction Football critics have been able to agree on all men considered for the all-western football team except four. They hesitated in choosing between Page of Minnesota, and Lowenthal of Illinois, for the center position, 'but Page won out by his super ior knowledge of the igame and his playing against the Illinois men Thanksgiving. As guard, Stahl of Illinois, has shown himself to be one ol the best ground gain ers among western men in that position and clearly deserves the position given him. "Johnnie" Flynn is a close second for Minnesota. Good tackles are numerous this.season, but Curtis of Wisconsin and Shorts of Michigan carry off the honors in that po sition. Shorts was used by his team al most invariably when in a pinch and mad« good as a rule. Fee is the choice of sev eral critics, however. For the end place Snow of Michigan was first selected. Snow earned his place on the all-Western team In his freshman year and has held it since. He was also selected as a substitute on the all-Amerl can eleven in his first year. As a run ning mate for the Bwift Michigan end, Juneau of Wisconsin, has been placed ahead of Rogers of Minnesota, on account of his goal kicking ability. The Indian pushes him hard for the position, however, and has been selected "by many football men as the Wisconsin man's superior. Owing to his ground gaining ability Driver of Wisconsin, has been given precedence over S"weely of Michigan, as full 'back, the best punter in western col leges. Knowlton of Minnesota is a close competitor. Larsen of Wisconsin, and Heston of Michigan secured the halves while Coch ems of Wisconsin followed close. Weeks of Michigan has things all his own way at quarter. The difference in opinion as to who deserve places on the all-star aggregation is shown by the selection made by foot ball critics of Chicago papers: Chicago American: Ends—Juneau, Wisconsin, and Snow, Michi gan. Tackles—Shorts, Michigan, and Curtis, Wis consin. Guards—Flynn, Minnesota, and Stahl, Illi nois. ducing winners, would like to see him back again, and it- is to be hoped that he and Mr. Beall may be able to make a deal. Wilmot tried to get into the new organ ization via Grand Rapids, but the con trolling powers awarded the franchise to Columbus instead. Clarence E. Saulpaugh says that the league made a mistake in passing by Grand Rapids in favor of Columbus, which never was any good. All that Grand Rapids needs is a baseball park nearer the business district, and it would be a good town in the new league. ROSS TALKS BACK Another War of Words Witli the Fire-Eatins Leßoux. Another war of words is on between Professor F. R. Leroux of Minneapolis and Professor C. H. Ross of St. Paul, fencers. In reply to Professor Leßoux's recent disdainful treatment of Professor Ross' challenge, the latter writes The Journal as follows: Having just returned to town after a few days' absence, I discover amongst my mail an envelop with a clipping in reply to my challenge you issued Nov. 20. Hd did not write a line. He need not have troubled to send me this, for I saw hia reply and in tended to give it my prompt attention when I got back. Please say for me that Professor Leßoux fears defeat at my hands, otherwise, why does he decline to have anything to do with me? It is not because he "waited two hours at the Y. M. C. A. for me last April." There is some misunderstanding nere and it looks as though Leßoux was trying to avoid a contest with me—as he has dene with others —for he certainly must be afraid of the re sult. That is the only conclusion the fencers of the twin cities can come to If not, I say, let him don the mask, bring forth the foil and prove hi 3 skill and stop further bragging to hia fifteen friends and others. It might be better to show how well he can fence than to talk so much. He can arrange this matter to suit himself, so long as it is done in an honest, upright way, and before an audience with responsible seconds and referee. He can name the latter, for I always like everything above board. Yours truly, —C. H. Ross, Master at Arms. P. S.—l will meet Leßoux with either foil or saber, it matters not to me.

Denver Dec. 2.—Fistic followers here who expected to see their champion, "Young Corbett," In a battle at this city soon were given a hard knock when it was announced by President Adams and Mem ber Burpee, two of the three members of the fire and police board, that no prize fighting would be permitted during their terms of office, which don't expire until 1903. The members of the police board were approached with a view to learning its sentiment regarding a fight between "Young Corbett" and Dave Sullivan, which was practically settled on in New York last night. The law permitting twenty round fights has been declared unconstitu tional by the district court and is now in the supreme court on appeal, but fight promoters are not anxious to press it, fearing an unfavorable decision.

THE KILTIES CONCERTS "The Kilties," Toronto's crack Scottish mil itary band, gave three concerts at the Ly ceum theater, Saturday and Sunday night, and Saturday matinee. The Sunday concert was an afterthought, and was given to afford an opportunity for people who were unable to secure seats at the Saturday concerts, to hear the band on the evening following. "The Kilties," as the organization is known, is the band of the famous Highlanders regi ment of Toronto, Can. It was brought here by Clan Gordon of this city, and the concerts wero held under the auspices of that society. On Saturday night the band attracted an audi enco to the Lyceum that filled every seat both on the main and balcony floors, although seats were ctill to be had in the gallery. The majority of the people present were of Scotch birth or descent, and they applauded enthusi astically every familiar Scotch air played. The program included a number of Scotch pieces, one of them a medley arrangement of favorite airs. An unusual feature in band concerts was the introduction of trained dan cers, who were encored repeatedly for their Scotch dances. The members of the band were uniformed in the costume of their regiment, and pre sented a most picturesque appearance. MARCH_MAY DIE A Minneapolis Traveling Man Shot at . Grand Forks. In a quarrel between Frank W. March of Minneapolis and W. T. West of St. Paul in the lobby of the Dacotah hotel, Grand Forks, N. D., Saturday night, March was shot by West, the bullet en tering the stomach and perforating the intestines in seven or eight places. Hope for March's recovery has been abandoned. West has surrendered himself to the chief-of-police at Grand Forks. The wounded man was for many years a resident of this city, and was Very well known here. He is a nephew of Major C. B. Heffelflnger, and has been traveling for the North Star Shoe company for the past four years, during which time he has lived with his young wife at Grand Forks. West is a representative of the George C. Wright Land company of St. Paul. He and March had been friends for years, but some time ago, it is said, they quar reled over an alleged insult of Mrs. March by West. When the two men met in the hotel lobby, Saturday evening, March demanded that West make an apology. This he refused to do, and West struck him. They scuffled together for a few moments and then guests at the hotel separated them. West, it is said, then drew a revolver from his pocket and be fore any attempt could be made "to dis arm him, flred. The bullet entered the left side of the body near the /rom, and penetrated both the stomach and the in testines. The wounded man walked to the door of the room and then fell, par alysis of the left leg having ensued. At tending physicians say he cannot recover.

Although some people .have the impres sion that the line new course called the "New Century Lectures," -which takes the place this season of the Institute of Arts and Letters course, is already opened, the first lecture, as a matter of fact, has not ypt been given. The Seton-Thompson lectures given last' month were simply preliminary events and must not be con founded with the regular course, which is to be given in the auditorium of Plym outh church, which will be opened* Friday evening, Dec. 13, by Madame Sarah Grand, author of 'The Heavenly Twins" and many other novels, who will speak upon "More Man." Whll9 the course has not yet been opened, what is of much more importance to many people is the definite annouuee- ment that the seat reservations have not yet taken place. Some persons who did not care to take the Seton-Thompson lec tures, but who wanted the regular course, beginning with Madame Grand, have de layed sending in their subscriptions be cause they were under the impression that those who took the Seton-Thompson lectures had the privilege of selecting their seats at that time for the lectures to be given in Plymouth church, and that therefore the ticket board had been broken Into and there was now no par ticular choice of seats. This, however, la not the caae, for as stated above, the reservations for seats at Plymouth church have not yet taken place. Sub scriptions for course tickets are being received daily, but no subscriber has yet had an opportunity-to select his seat. The date bet for this purpose is Monday, Dec. S>, when subscribers will have a clean board to select from. Persons desiring to attend this course should subscribe at once and obtain the privilege of select ing their seats before the public sale be gins. Subscriptions may be left at the Metropolitan Music store. JOSEF HOFMANN COMING Faniou» Young- Piunlftt Will l'lay Here in January.
