Minneapolis Bowlers Will Be Repre

at Indianapolis.

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

will be composed of ten bowling teams

GOOD YEAR AHEAD
President Johnston of Local Baseball
Club Predicts Successful Sea
son This Year. 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. '
Efforts are being made by the Cornell athletic
authorities to arrange a football game with
Harvard next fall. It is rumored in Harvard
football circles that Cornell Intends to cut Penn
sylvania or Princeton from the list and have a
big game with the crimson If the Harvard people

The number of rinks entered for the Winnipeg
bonspiel is now 173 and ten or twelve more
are expected. 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. ..-.''
Sam Hastings' rink won the Donaldson buttons
Saturday evening, defeating the Rlheldaffer quar
tet, the former holders of the emblems, by a

Wolverine Wins First Race at Gull
Lake for the International
Trophy.: .
Saturday was an ideal day for ice boat
racing at Kalamazoo, although the wind
was a little light.' There were 1,000' peo
ple on Gull Lake to witness the contests
for supremacy. The boats got off for the
first trial for the international trophy at
11:55 a. m.
The Joker drew the choice position and
was quickly followed over the line by the
Wolverine, the Scud and the Dreadnaught
of Shrewsbury river, the Princess of Madi
son, Wis., the Zero and Crescent of Mus
kegon, the Greenland, the Pocahontas and
some other boats that dropped out imme
diately after the start.
The course was two miles and return,
five times around. At the fourth turn of
the stake the Wolverine led by. half a
mile, with Dreadnaught second, Joker
third and Princess .fourth. The Wolver
ine was far ahead at the finish with a
time for the race of 1:16:30. The Dread
naught made her twenty miles in 1:18:15,
the Joker and Princess folowed.
New York will hold the center of the stage

titled to-rank as the champion of the country.
The probable starters are E. M. Gardner, F.
A. Gardner, A. R. Townsend, Ferdinand Poggen

of Wllkesbarre. Pa. W. P. Foss, of Haverstraw,

ton.
With the coming tourney a. success, there is
reason to believe that the Chicago Athletic As
sociation will hold a similar event In Chicago
next year, and for. this, reason western billiard
lsts have a double interest in the New York
tournament..

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. He offered, however, to fight the
winner of the Attel-Hanlon bout, as that looked
like easier game, and will make 128 pounds at
4 o'clock for them on the same date he refuses
to give Britt.
Take ah Orangeine powder to head it off.

out, and five heats were required to set
tle each race. Jack Abbey, owned by
George C. Sherman, secretary of the club,
surprised the crowd' by taking the 2:40
trot after a hard struggle. Fames, an
other newcomer, won the first heat, and in
the second Jack Abbey came to the
front. Tessie got the third heat, but
Jack Abbey captured the fourth and fifth,
taking first money.

A peculiar situation has arisen from the draw
game played Saturday, at Montreal in the Stanley
cup hockey series for the world's championship.
The series was fixed for the best two out of
three. After the mitch the Montreal team con
tended that, as they had won one game and
drawn another, it was Impossible for the Vic
torias to win two out of three.
The trustees of the cup were appealed to, and
they decided that Saturday night's game should
be continued to-night.
If Montreal scores first, then the cup remains
in their possession. If. however, Winnipeg
scores first, the game will go to them and the
third and deciding game shall be begun at once.
Harvard proved a victor over Columbia at
