I* f 14,,, '"*' 1 SPORTS EBTBIES SENT IN Minneapolis Bowlers Will Be Repre sented in All Three Contests at Indianapolis. Parr Retains His Place on Team Chicago Expects to Win Championship. Chairman Olness of the schedule com mittee of the Indianapolis Tournament Association, Saturday mailed the entries of the Minneapolis bowlers for the na tloinal contest. The local men entered In all the competitions, the flve-men team, two-men team and individual champion ships. Following are the entries: Five-men TeamWoolloy, Sallander, Bandblom, Fust and Olness. Substitute, ^arr. Two-men TeamsSandblom and Sallan tfer, Woolley and Olness, Fust and Farr. All six men are entered in the individual ontest. This action settles the contest between Apall and Farr for sixth place on the team. It was thought at one time that the dispute might cause a split among the local bowlers, but Apall and his friends finally accepted the decision of the sched ule committee and did ndt press the mat ter. The twin cities will be represented by three teams instead of two at the national event. The Twin City Sportsman and Bowlers' Journal has decided to send a team of its own, and has selected ten well-known twin city men, from whom a team of five will be picked. The ten men rhosen are as follows: John Ruge. Jake Uuehler, A. A. Hansen and Alex Koppell of Minneapolis H. P. Keller, Fred Gose wisch, Harry Graham, Walter Mahler, Frank Doris and H. N. Fowler of St. Paul. The Commercial League of St. Paul has elected as delegates to the American bowling congress, Fred Gosewisch, H. N. Fowler and Harry Graham. The delega tioin was instructed to vote at all times against the loaded ball and to vote for Mil waukee for the next meeting place. If a deadlock occurs, however, the St. Paul men will try to start a boom for their own city. Chicago expects to carry off the national championship this year. The windy city will be represented at Indianapolis by fourteen five-men teams, and double that number of pairs. In the individual cham pionship Chioago will be represented by some three-score bowlers. The time limit for entries in the Indian ftpolis tournament has been extended even days. The entry list was to have been closed yesterday, but the managers decided on the extension for the benefit of teams that have not made up their minds. The Indianapolis association which was organized to give the tournament has com pleted all the arrangements. It has $6,000 in the bank to distribute as prizes and to defray incidental expenses. This amount does not include the entry fees. The work of constructing ten alleys in Tomlin son hall will begin within two weeks, the contract having been awarded. Eastern bowlers generally admit that with the use of loaded balls the champion ships are sure to come to the western bowlers. - This fact has to a certain extent lessened the interest in the tournament in the east, but it has proportionately in creased the western enthusiasm. Cleveland bowlers are making the great est efforts to land the presidency of the congress for the coming year. That city is prepared to send a big delegation to urge her claims not only for the presidency but for the 1904 convention as well. Mil waukee and Louisville are the other chief contestants for the convention. Indian apolis bowlers look with favor on Cleve land's claim, principally because Cleveland is further east, and "there is an unwritten law that the convention shall alternate be tween the east and the west. The Louis ville delegation will be headed by Mayor Grainger. Mayor Rowe of Lakewood will head the Cleveland delegation. He will be a strong favorite for ths presidency. The Buffalo and Chamber of Commerce teams in the Greater Minneapolis league will roll to-night at the Co-operative al leys. The feature of the week in the league will be to-morrow night's match between the Tasmo and Turner quintets. A Twin City Foresters league, which will be composed of ten bowling teams from the different courts of the Independ ent Order of Foresters in St. Paul and Minneapolis will be organized during the next few days.

V American Association Meets in Chi cago SaturdayTebeau Knooks the St. Paul Club. President Johnston of the Minneapolis baseball club has returned from Chicago, where he held a conference last week with President Hiekey of the American association. He predicted a successful year for the league, and said that Chicago baseball men all spoke highly of the Min neapolis team. The annual meeting of the association Will be held in Chicago Saturday, when the cirouit will be decided and some minor matters settled. Mxich dissatisfaction was expressed over the quality of the base balls last year, and an effort will be made to secure a better quality of spheres for the coming season. George Tebeau, president of the Louis ville club in the American association, is still of the opinion the association will have a team in Chicago. He said: "Except St. Paul, every city in the a s sociation is better as a business proposi tion than* Chicago with three clubs. Any either proposition would be an improve ment on St. Paul. Visiting clubs lose money there and managers tire of going there. "All favor transferring St. Paul to Chi cago and will use every endeavor to per suade Lennon to move. If he persists in staying, then Chicago will not be invaded, and no sane person would think of trans ferring any of the other seven clubs. "This talk of the big leagues fighting the association if we enter Chicago is all bosh. They have only themselves to blame. "When they abrogated the national agreement they knocked down their claim to territorial rights and went jQbong the minor league pirating players. If the minor leagues had any desirable territory they would have taken that. "All the association clubs are busy singing players and will add 50 per cent to the playing strength of the association. We will serve as fast ball as the major leagues." The fate of the foul strike rule used by the National league for the past two years will be decided at the joint session of the American and National league committees this week, and the deliberations of that body will be of considerable Interest to/the ball fans throughout the country. The critics are practically unanimous In predicting that the rule will go, and the old rules used by the American league be adopted. Whatever way the matter is decided, it will undoubtedly be settled amicably, but a long discussion is -likely to precede the final decision. President Hart of the Chicago National league club is the father of the foul strike rule, and Ned Hanlon, his companion on the National league rules committee, has also been an ardent supporter of the law. The rule, which calls a strike "a foul hit ball not caught on the fly, unless two strikes have been called," necessarily helps the pitcher, and at the time the change was, offered it was Colonel Hart's plan to equalize matters by allowing the batsman to take his base on three balls instead of four. In the discussion which will come up this week this phase of the change will undoubtedly be advocated by President Hart, and perhaps by Hanlon. Still showing the signs of his severe illness, which kept him at his home for three weeks, two weeks of which he had lain in bed, Ban B, Johnson, president of the American Baseball league, visited his office in the Fisher building in Chicago Saturday. Johnson said: "I see there are many stories afloat re garding the site for the grounds in New York city. Well, we are going in there, regardless of all stories to the contrary, and nothing now can prevent us. The grounds are assured and Wf will play ball there when the tijtie comes fpj5r the opeii-^ ing games in th^"spririgr. "I do not .know when I will go to York, but I expect to do so soon. There is quite a bit of business to be looked after therenot so much the grounds problem as other business. The date for the N ew York meeting has not been de cided upon, but I expect it will be held about the latter part of next month." The informal conference of the presi dents of the western clubs in the National Baseball league at Cmcinriati yesterday, was without results. President Haft of the Chicago club was not present. -Presi dent Herrmann of the Cincinnati club, President Robisbn / of the St. Louis club and President Dreyfus of the Pittsburg club conferred during the day on various matters, but last night they said they had done nothing and did not expect to do anything a this meeting, although they will be together again to-day. They are all in favor of asking the' western clubs of the American league to co-operate with them for an interchange of games before the championship season opens, sfnd there is no doubt that the proposition will be ac companied with a schedule of dates that Mr. Herrmann has prepared. Brooklyn patrons of baseball may have the pleasure of witnessing some famous old stars at Washington Park this season. The Brooklyn club has claimed Hugh Jen nings, Joe Corbett, Jimmy Hughes, Charlie Irwin and Eddie Wheeler. Under the agreements reached by the American and National leagues any player not in the list of other clubs may be. claimed. Jennings, Corbett, Hughes, Irwin and Wheeler are not included in the list of players apportioned at the joint confer ence of the American and National leagues and Brooklyn has claimed them. Under the reserve rule no other club can have these men. Buffalo and Providence are still Amer ican league, possibilities. These cities have not come into, line in the Eastern league circuit. There is a hitch, and it looks as if the hitch would remain an un certainty until the American league shows its hand on Manhattan island. The East ern league adjourned Friday after a three days' session at N ew York without set tling the circuit question. The American league has been flirting with these two cities and, while Buffalo is the city they want, it is believed they will take Prov idence if they cannot get Buffalo. At a meeting of the newly elected board of directors of the Sioux Falls Base ball association, Colonel John Emrnke was elected president of the organization. The remainder of. the officers will be elected at the next meeting of the board. It is now an assured fact that Sioux Falls will during the coming season again have a baseball team which will be able to hold its own with any of the teams' of the northwest. At a meeting of the board of directors of the Milwaukee American Association Baseball club Saturday officers were elected as follows: President, Charles Havenor vicerpresident, H. :J. Bauman secretary, Cornelius Corcoran. According to President Walter Liglnger, the Amateur Athletic Union championships, to be decided in Milwaukee,. March 7, will call out a larger attendance- than any heretofore given. The entry blanks for the meet already have been generally circulated. Not less than 250 Indi vidual entries are expected, and the high school teams are looked upon to do some exceptionally good work.

At a meeting of the council of Manitoba curlers held In the city hall Satur day the secretary announced that Lord Strath cona had donated to the branch $400 in addition to his regular subscription of $100." There was' a great deal of discussion on the entry of the Nushka club of St. Paul, in the Tnckett competition. This club won the right to enter the competition for St. Paul and duly entered two rinks. It was later on found that two. rinks could not come to Winnipeg and the club asked if one rink from the St. Paul club skipped by R. H. Dunbar, and one Nushka rink, skipped by C. M. Griggs, could form a team to represent their district. This Is distinctly against the rules of the branch, and the request was refused. The Nushka men then joined the St. Paul club and under its colors again entered for the Tnckett. The meeting on Saturday posi tively refused to accept the entry, and in so doing adhered to the precedent established some years ago. ..-.''

Bill Changing Game Laws to Be In troduced Into Legislature This Week. The recommendations of the state game and fish, commission for changes in the statutes with regard to the protection of fish and game, have been embodied in a bill which will be- introduced into the legislature this week. One of the most important changes suggested is that the fines collected for violations of the law shall go to the counties in which the of fense occurred, Instead of to the state, as heretofore. Under the present law, although the state gets the fines, if the offender fails to settle, and is committed to jail for thirty or ninety days, the county must bear the expense of his board during that time. On this account the residents of such counties are not over zealous in en forcing the law. The payment of fines into the county "treasury is expected to result in better moral support j for the game wardens. Other changes recommended |are the same as those suggested by the St. Paul chapter of the League of American Sportsmen, and have already been dis cussed at length. A summary of the proposed alterations in the laws follows: Every resident hunter to secure a gun license. The commission originally rec ommended 50 cents for the cost of such resident's lie'ense, but many hunters think $lis not too much, and the latter amount may "be decided upon. Non-resident hunters to pay $25 license fee. Fees for all licenses will be paid into' the state treasury for general uses, and a stated appropriation will be given the game and fish commission for its work. Open season for woodcock to begin Sept. 1 instead of July 1. and quail sea son to extend from Oct. 15 to Dec. 1, in stead of from Oct. 1 to Dec. 1. Trout season' to end Aug. 15 instead of Sept. 1. Each hunter's license to carry a cou pon for each deer or moose the hunter is allowed to shoot by law. Coupon to be at tached to eacih deer or moose killed, stat ing "when, where and by whom the ani mal was shot. Game subject to seizure at any time if coupon is not. attached. IN THE PBIZE RING Fltzslminons and Jeffries may go to England and tour In exhibition contests similar to those the big fighters are giving in the west at pres ent. While in Omaha Friday, they received cablegrams through their managers from Wil liamson & Cosgrove, of London, offering them big money to appear in that country. They have not yet decided to accept or reject the offer. When Fltz was asked if he would fight Ryan, he replied: "Fight that wind-jammer! I'll never get th chance." It is quite likely that Frank Erne's determina tion to forsake the ring will be broken before very long. '"When a man wants to get out of the fight ing business," said Erne the other day, "he looks around to see what,else he can ro besides fight. The first thing that is thrust at him is the saloon business. None of that for me. Instructor in some gymnasium or opening one yourself is another proposition, but it is more often a loser than a winner. "When you begin to look around for gentler professions or other business propositions out side of bookmaklng on a race track, the fact that vou have been a pugilist sticks to you, and Is a bad handicap. Then, too, there is more money to be made in the fighting business than in any other I can think of going into. "If I did go back into the game, I would go back in earnest. No more training just two or three weeks for a battle. It would take me six months of conscientious work to get good and hard and fit for a grueling battle again. I have a good chance with any of them, I think."- After being cornered on his own proposition to fight Jimmy Britt, and seeing no other.way to get out of an Immediate bout, "Young" Corbett replied-that Feb. 27 would be too early for him to think of making 116 pounds, and the match Is off.
