The Tuxedos won all three gam es with the Olympias last night at the Co-opera tive alleys. The Olympias were only _C pins behind in the opening game, but they lost the other two by decisive, scores. After the first game the Tuxedos made re markably high scores. Parker and Sand blom got the high scores of the evening, 225 and 223 respectively, and Parker also got high average with 202.

The call is issued by President Ruge. "Mayor Rose for president of the A. B. C," will be the cry of the Milwaukee dele gates to the national bowling tourney at Indianapolis week after next, as well as "Milwaukee for 1904." The precedent of electing the mayor of the city in which the tournament is to be held as president of the congress was established last year with the election of Mayor Bookwalter of Indianapolis. Thus if the congress is se cured for Milwaukee next year, it prac tically means the election of the mayor as president. Mayor Rose is practicing daily on the. alleys and will be entered in the tournament.. The fact that Mayor Bookwalter has absolutely declined to run for the office again makes the mayor's chances much stronger. While, the candidacy of the mayor has not been announced, it is well understood that he will be the choice of the Milwau kee delegates for the supreme office. In working for the congress at Indianapolis it is thought that his being in the race will be a valuable adjunct in the city's favor. The mayor has taken a great in terest in the game and the national tour nament, fully recognizing the importance to the. business interests of the city in securing the congress.

T) 7 1.1 22 24 20 35 33 MISCELLANEOUS SPORTS It has remained for Dollar Bay to introduce a new feature of athletic sport In tlie upper Michigan peninsula, namely, pushball. A mini ber of young men organized for that purpose and are very enthusiastic over the game. The game requires eleven men on each side, and It is plaved on a level field', 140 feet iii length by 50 feet wide, and the ground is marked off every ten yards, like a football gridiron. The Dollar Bay boys have ordered the necessary paraphernalia, and as soon as the ball arrives they will start practice. They will probably have to piny among themselves, however, as there is no other team In this part of the coun try. The ball cost $80. The Dollar Bay team hopes to see other teams organized in the upper peninsula, now that they have set the pace, although, on account of the cost of the ball, there is no danger of the game running out football or baseball. The problem of the assistant coaehship of the University of Wisconsin football team is still unsettled, there being at present three candidates for the position, two of whom (Larsen and Cochems) are old Wigconslp men and were members of the 1901 team, of which Arthur Curtis was captain. The majority of the mem bers of the present board, however, are: still in favor of McCarthy, and. should the choice be left with the present board, the decision would, in all probability, be in favor of the Brown man. The present board, however, will not have the decision to make, as an entirely new board will be elected at the meeting of the athletic association early nest week. 202 175 2-3 161 1-3 172 2-3 197 2-3 Pet. .SSI .833 .690 .476 .428 .331 .16V .15 m Our business policy: "Never to carry over winter goods" has forced more choice suits and overcoats into the popular Basement Salesroom.

O'Brien, how ever, wants the mill to be limited to twenty or twenty-five rounds, and suggests that the weight be at the. middle-weight limit of weigh in at 3 o'clock on the afternoon of the fight. O'Brien says that'lf Fitzsimmons insists be can bave a %idflJje of big proportions. The chances of Fitzsirtvmons accepting are'hot favor able, as Bob is negotiating with Tommy Ryan. Should tlie latter back out. however, Fitzsim mons may agree to meet the Philadelphian. -James Jeffries, who is exhibiting at Joplin, Mo., says: "I don't take any stock in Cor bett's challenges. If he is sincere, let him make a deposit with the Denver Post and I will pay some attention to it." According to a cablegram received at New York by Sam Harris, agent for Terry McGovern, the National Sporting Club, of London, has agreed to allow McGovern $1,000, -which he asked for expenses, to go to I/ondon and meet Ben Jordan, and the articles of agreement are on the way here. Harris wired accepting the offer. "Young" Corbett and Harris, for McGovern, have accepted an offer for a six-round bote be fore the Penn Athletic Club, in Philadelphia.

Play will continue for the balance of this,, week and all of next. There are twenty nine sheets of ice, and no less than 145 games will be played each day. The Scotch curlers are there and received an enthusiastic reception. They will visit the twin cities next week. Bob Dunbar's crack St. Paul rink ar rived yesterday and met with a great re ception. I.em Detiel, the big third of the v rink. is perhaps the mpst popular player on the ice. The rink is made up of Evan Reese, F. McCarthy, L. Deflel and R. II. Dunbar. . McCarthy was a busy man yesterday afternoon. iHe put in a lot of time trying to .convince the branch people that the Nushkas and St. Paul clubs were one and the same outiit. H e was well backed up by Charlie Barlow, Griggs, Southpaw third man, but it is not likely that the Tuckett entry of this pair will be ac cepted. H. W. Gilroy and J. H. Johnson of Drayton, N- D., Tiave two very strong rinks in front of them. At the recent district bonspiel at Emerson the Ameri cans made a clean sweep, capturing the. Tuckett, district medals arid the Mac Farlane medals. The Duluth crowd also got,in yesterday, and, as usual, are the leaders in society. Harry Hurdon is an old-timer at the bon spiel? while MacKenzie and Morrison are also well known in Winnipeg. C K.

Twenty lower class men who have not previously tried for the team wore out - yester day, and both Dr. Williams and Captain Bock man were much pleased at the outlook for a winning team. The latest and best baseball pipe is contained in a dispatch from Milwaukee, which says that the Toledo club in the American Association probably will be transferred to Chicago instead of the St. Paul club, as was at first planned. Toledo is the smallest city in the circuit and has never proved a money maker. Owner Strobe! himself is said to be in favor of the change. If negotiations are successful, "Ducky" Holmes, the well-known ball player, will coach the baseball team of the Iowa state -college, at Ames, this season.

SOO ROAD'S NEW PLAN Settler's Specials Consisting of Freight, Cattle and Dismantled Tourist Cars. The Soo, which took the initiative in an nouncing roundtrip homeseekers' excur sion rates, lias issued the tariff cover ing the rates - It,,^provides for a rate of one fare plus,V*xMhe excursions to be given March 3'"and*eVery"-second. Tuesday thereafter till November.- The Western iPassenger association lines have agreed to give excursions, on the* same dates to the same territory from Chicago, Kansas City and. intermediate points, using the one fare roundtrip rate as a basis.. The Great Northern and Northern Pacific have not yet announced :what action they will take in the matter of homeseekers'-.excursions. It is questionable whether they will niakc a ny roundtrip homeseekers' rates. That the two coast" roads 'will put in low one way rates when the landseekers* rates, Which go into effect Feb. 15, expire April 30, is possible. The officials say that it is doubtful whether the homeseek-. ers' excursions oh the basis used last sum mer are profitable. v The.Soo, In addition* to the landseekers' rates, which go into effect Feb. 15 arid continue till April 30.-.and the homeseek ers' rates, which become effective March 3, will give a" series of settlers' excur sions in March and April to points in North arid South Dakota at a $6 rate. The Soo will each Tuesday in March and April run, a series of "settlers' specials," leaving the Minnesota' Transfer at 5 o'clock arid running limited to points in North Dakota and Canada. These trains will be composed.-! of freight cars, stock cars' and dismantled tourist cars, and will be provided without Jextra charge. The stock cars will be attaclied to the train so that the farmers may take right with them their stock and household effects, doing away with the delay-in transportation or dinarily incurred on the regular freight service. Each "settler?' special" will be accompanied by an r agent who will look after the passengers and their effects. The allowances for effects will be liberal. R. I. ON SAME LEVEL Closes Deal With" Hafrirrian Lines That of..the rf|hwaukee. The new traffic agreement between the Rock Island and the- Harriman roads is understood to irictud* the placing of the Rock Isiand on a parity with, the Nort h western and the Milwaukee roads as to all traffic by way of the Ogden gateway. Th Southern Pacific will give a much larger share of -iw the Rock Island .and will recognize the right of the Choctaw-line to a share of the immigrant business. This agreement probably ends the flirtation between the Rock Island and the Santa FeL companies, although the Rock Island refuses to. bind itself to give its' Pacific coast traffic ex clusively to the Southern Pacific. I t only agrees riot to give any other company more than it does the Southern Pacific. The Rock Island management really is not entitled to the credit of originating the plan by which it secured the desired concessions from the Harriman system. The Milwaukee .worked the same scheme a few months ag oi J .-.', ,- CAN'T GIVE 20 PER CENT President Ripley of Santa Fe Says De- . mand Is. Too.High.

The old freight tariff in continuous existence has just been abolished by the Oregon Rnil wav and Navigation Feb. 1 replacesr defunct tariff had 115 amendments anil was a well thumbed document. Roads usually issue tariffs at frequent intervals, hence the one Just abolished-is a record-braker. A Tower of Strength. The showing made by The Prudential Insurance Company of America, whose home office as at Newark, N. J., fully en titles it to the claim of possessing the "Strength of Gibraltar." During 1902 The Prudential wrote over $272,000,000 of new insurance, paid for, which amount is the largest ever written by a ny Life Insurance Company of the same age. .Its report on January 1st, 1303. was as follows: Paid-for Insurance in force. $&02,000,000. on nearly 5,000,000 policies w.ith.assets over $60,000,000 sur plus over $9,000,000 annual income over $33,000,000 paid policy holders during 1902, over $9,000,000 maki ng a total pay ment'to policy-holders since the founda tion of the Company of nearly $68,000,000. This record speaks for itself. Those who wish to now more about this pro gressive company and of its popular poli cies which are adapted to all ages, and for all amounts from $15 to $100,000, would do well to communicate with the Home Office, Newark, N.
