"Archie" Stimmel Pitches Wonderful
Game for the Local Team, Allowing
but Two SinglesTeam\MateB Go to
Pieces In Fourth, but Bat Out a
Members ot the miller band, playing a game
f ball with the saints at Minnehaha park yes
terday afternoon, were afflicted with a severe at
tack of errorltls during the fourth period. Stren
uous remedies were applied by Dr. Watklns and
the leathei heavers recovered sufficiently to
hand another bunch to Lennon's heroes. The
ratio was: Minneapolis 5, St. Paul 8.
Archibald Stimmel, the elongated twlrter, was
In the box for the home team. "Archie" had
taken note of Mr. Thomas' Saturday performance
and he went down Into Southtown yesterday
with the determination to at least equal
"Frosty's" record. He did It. During the nine
periods of play all that "Mike" Kelly's mess
mates could acratob. out was two lonesome hits.
Stimmel gave one pass and his teammates did
the rest of St. Paul's scoring.
Sessions was doing the honors for the saints,
and he did pretty well for his employer up to
the fourth Inning, when the Watklns warriors
ambushed him. When he had recovered from
the surprise of It aU he was humiliated to find
how many times he had been hit. After that
It wasn't hard for the millers, who hit enough
to win, and when the game was over the bingle
total read eleven.
One of the largest crowds of the season was
the Minnehaha grounds yesterday to watch the
fun. They received full worth of their money.
Everything was uneventful up to the first ot the
fourth. At that time the saints made a hit,
Stimmel gave a free transportation ticket and
Freeman, Weaver and Qremlnger did unpleasant
stunts, and the score stood 3 to 0 In favor of
the losers.
This was the Incentive the millers needed.
In their half of the fourth Coulter led off with
a solo, and the miller band Joined in an anvil
Chorus which brought supreme joy to the local
mooters and tied the score. They added ono
more in the fifth and took another Just for luck
Jn tha seventh. For poor old St Paul there
was nothing doing in the score department after
the fourt'i.

Other in the Ring
New York Sun Speoial Service.
Butte, Mont., Sept. 6.This afternoon, when
Aurelio Herrara and "Battling" Nelson clash In
the new arena of the Montana Athletic club, a
battle will occur which will bring to the front
a new contestant for the light and feather
weight championships. Jimmy Brltt and Young
Corbett must meet the winner of this bout or

One Timothy Hurler, Altoona, Pa encoun
tered one Michael Schreck, Cincinnati, near
Hastings yesterday afternoon, with the result
that the physical demonstrator ftpm the Ohio
city threw a bushel or two of boxing (cloves
Into the face and torso of the Pennsylvanlan,
causing him to renounce the glories of prize
ring war in the third round.
The fight was given by the St. Paul Outing
club and was scheduled to take place near
Prescott, Wis The ring was set up and rea'dv
and the exhibition match between Walter Loonoy
of Chicago and Frank Carroll of Minneapolis
was Just closing when Deputy Sheriff Charles A.
Young of Pierce county, accompanied by Glenn
Denny, the city marshal of Prescott, appeared.
The fans yielded and moved down the river
on a chartered boat to a point below Hastings.
There the fight was pulled off on an island
with no other ring than ropes tied around
four trees.
Owing to the fact that the fljcht might
be stopped, the principal bout was put
on first. Hurley seemed to have the best
of the first round until he received Shreck's
short jab on the jaw just as the bell rang.
Hurley came up groggy in the second round.
He forced the fighting In the third round. A
left hook finally sent Hurley to his knees.
Schreck drove a right swing to the jaw and
sent Hurley down with a left hook in the same
place. Hurley took nine counts and the bell
saved him. His seconds then threw the sponge
into the ring.
The preliminary was fought after the prin
cipal had bU gulled off. Joe Kelcey of Min
neapolis and Pat Ebbs of St. Paul were the
attraction. The fight went six rounds and was
declared a draw. Ebbs took some punishment,
but he had the Minneapolis man guessing thru
out the fight.
Boston Autoist on His Way to the
Charles J. Glidden'a first day run from Min
neapolis landed him in Glenwood without inci
dent. The big Napier auto fitted with flanged
wheels ran over the Soo line. The start was
made from the Soo station at Fifth avenue N
yesterday morning at 0.30 o'clock, the car go
ing as a second section of the regular 9:20
In the party as it left Minneapolis were Mr.
and Mrs. ulidden, William Henry Eustls, Con
ductor J. E. Horn of the Soo and Charies
Thomas, the chauffeur.
Edward Pennington, vice president of the
Soo, and G. R. Huntington, general superin
tendent, were present to make final arrangements
for the start.
Returns from the first day's run show that the
car made speed as high as sixty miles an hour
at times, altho a lower rate was maintained.
Glenwood is 120 miles from Minneapolis, and the
only excitement of the run was a hot boxing,
but this was remedied without loss of time.
The second day's run was started at 8:25 this
morning, and the same line of precautions, in'
eluding train orders and presence of Tallroad
men, were in evidence.

Thinks Commodore Hertz Did Not
Act According to the
Speoial to The Journal.
Milwaukee, Sept. 5 The unsatisfactory result
of the Inland Yachting association regatta, at
Oshkosh, has brought lorth several articles pro
and con, and It is evident that there are many
yachtsmen who would have preferred to see the
race go to a finish and thus leave no ground
for complaint from any source. Fred Pabst,
who sailed the Comet II., takes exception to
some of the statements made. Mr. Pabst says
he does not desire to pose as a sorehead, or
anything of the kind, but, in view of the
fact that different statements have been made
regarding the unsatisfactory affair at Oshkosh,
he thinks it is only right that he should give
his version of the controversy. In discussing the
matter, Mr. Pabst said.
"Now, in legard to the sailing Of the Alpha,
Charles M. Griggs, skipper, I wlU say that
there was considerable comment on the action
of the crew of the Alpha on the alleged refusal
to sail Friday morning. That criticism was ab
solutely misdirected. Of course, the captains
of the various boats have no voice in deciding on
postponements, or declaring races off. The
criticism should have been directed against Com
modore Hertz, president of the Inland Lake as
sociation, who arbitrarily and in a prejudiced
manner, and absolutely at variance with the rule*
of the association, declared the race off instead
of postponing it.
"I, myself, was one of the executive commit
tee, but was not consulted, as I was Interested
in the race. A meeting of the captains was
called, but I received no notification of that.
Until late Thursday night it was understood
that a race was to be sailed Friday morning,
and it was not sailed because the Alpha crew
of White Bear and the Wihuja of Mlnnetonka
refused to sign a petition for the race. There
fore, the decision was virtually left with the
leading boat, who hardly can be blamed for act
ing in their own Interests. The fact remains
that the rules specifically state that the Judges
and executive committee may postpone a race
should unfavorable weather or other circum
stances make postponement advisable.
"Commodore Hertz arbitrarily decided, even
after these rules were shown him, that a race
could be postponed to a later hour of the same
day, but not to the next day.
"It is true that a resolution was passed at
one of the annual meetings that, in case lt*was
impossible to sail more than three races, those
three races should constitute a series. At the
Oshkosh meet, however, that was not the case,
as both Friday morning and afternoon were both
good sailing days.
"The Comet II. met the Alpha seven times on
Lake Winnebago, twice at Neenah for the Green
Lake cup, the same week Saturday for the
Felker cup, and four times for the Inland cup.
She won five out of the seven times, and it was
only owing to the fact that Comet II. was a
little overcanvased one day that the Alpha was
able to gain a lead of any consequence. Com
modore Hertz, as above stated, arbitrarily, and
in the face of my protest,-and contrary to the
specific rules and wishes of more than a ma*
jority of yachtsmen, declared the race off,
which virtually eliminated the chance of Comet
II. winning.
"If such arbitrary methods are to be permit
ted at future meetings it certainly will not en
hance Interest in yachting circles."
Mr. Pabst further stated that he did not feel
sore at losing the cup, as he has lost lots of
races just as cheerfully as he won others, but
he felt decidedly disappointed at the manner in
which bis chance of winning was withheld from
Minnetonka Boat Club Officers Hold a
Business Meeting.
At a meeting of tb,e full board of directors
of the Minnetonka Boat club Saturday night, it
was decided to remain in the present quarters
for another season, The rooms have been of
great advantage to the club, with the one ex
ception that the View does not offer a sufficient
sweep across the lake to watch the racecourse
during the races. The proposition of the com
mittee of the Minnetonka club at Deephaven to
use the old racy clubhouse in St. Louis bay
was declined by a unanimous vote, aS the board
of directors feel justified in avoiding the ex
pense necessarily connected with fitting up and
maintaining the clubhouse at the end of the
lake. The proposition was a very favorable
one, but as the house is in need of remodeling,
the expense would test rather heavy on the
othe rclub. It was also decided to give one
banquet this winter and a large dancing party
In the city, for the pm pose of bringing all
the club members together In order to renew
and keep up interest In the affairs of the club.
Saturday's iace was an exciting one and.
altho there was a lack of breeze towards the
finish, the trial for gaining points on the results
furnished all the necessary impetus. Highlander
won in the class A sloops, but Babble is in
the lead as to points, being 4 ahead of High
lander Dixie leads in the class sloops with
26 points. Victoria leads In class 0 and, altho
Trlfler won the race Saturdaj afternoon, she
entered too late in the regular races this sum
mer to make her enough points to win her the
sweepstake pennant. waterwitch and Hazard
were tied up to Saturday, but Hazard won out
In the good breeze whic hblew duiing the early
part of the race, which gave her 4 e&tra points

yesterday. The squad broke camp at Waconla,
packed their belongings and returned to Minne
apolis last night. They appeared on the grid
iron at Northrop field this afternoon at 4 o'clock
for the first time. Their appearance was a sig
nal for the gathering of the football clans of
the twin cities, and a large crowd was present
to watch the work.
Daily "additions to the squad are expected.
It Is not improbable that the registrar had un
knowingly inscribed the names of several foot
ball players upon the varsity rolls, and these
will be dug out later. There are always acces
sions to the squad after school opens, and it if)
alwayi safe to figure that one or two players
will be turned up In this way. Dan Smith was
One of this kind, and "if there are any more at
home like Dan" the football governors want to
know it as soon as possible.
Many of the players left Waconia Thursday,
Friday and Saturday. They came in to look
up boarding places. Business called others
away. The training table will start tonight,
and from present indications only the old mem
bers of the team will break bread with Dr. Wil
Uams. The existence of the training table will
have an effect to stimulate the work of the new
men in that they will try to get to the table,
regarding it as a manifestation of a possibility

The work at Coney Island was of a nature
highly satisfactory to Dr. Williams. Assistant
Coach Doble has done his work well, and when
the coach arrived the men were running the sig
nals and handling the ball In a pleasing style.
They were not overcrowded at any time, and as
a result there are no strained muscles to look
after. The fresh air and the food which Host
Zeglin gave the men has worked wonders. They
are a hearty, bronzed-tooking lot of athletes.
Those In charge of the football affairs of the
varsity hope for great things as a result of the
early work.
The men are beglnlng to realize that high
school football playing fa the veriest kinder

most encouraging symptom is the willing ue
with which the men are working.

when the squad Is expected to have increased to

promise la reported. He is Grogan, last year's
star halfback on the Marquette college, Mil

badger halfback Vanderboom on the Marinette

scrimmage playing in the first week.
A few hours only will be devoted to showing
new men how- to fall on the ball, catch punts,
break thru the line, etc., but after the first
week the playing will be hard and fierce,

Harvard has gone down to defeat for two
consecutive years, and it is the desire of the
management to make amends this season.

Much Secrecy Over the Addition
of a 260-pound
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 5.In spite of previous
plans and preparations, Nebraska university will
Install football practice on a date much later than
most of her western rivals. It was Coach Booth's
intention to reach Lincoln early in September)
and to immediately take the gridiron candidates
in hand, but his calculations have all gone
awry. The big Nebraska coach is in the law
practice in New York city and had arranged
to leave it the last week in August. Booth
has sent instructions to his first assistant, ex
Captain Westover. to take charge of the prac
tice work and drill the men for the first
practice game on Sept. 17 against Lincoln high
school. Meanwhile Westover is at the St. Louis
fair seeing the sights for a week or so, but will
return in time to inagurate practice by the 10th
of the month.
Westover has been doing some proselyting dur
ing the summer months, and announces that a
leng string of gridiron candidates will be en
rolled for the first time at Nebraska this year.
One ot his new men is a giant weighing 260
pounds and standing 6 feet 8 inches in his stock
ings. His avoirdupois is all bone and muscle,
with the fatty tissues eliminated. Westover Is
keeping secret the Identity of this Goliath, at
other institutions are angling to entice the new
man away from Nebraska. This youngster has
played academy football for three years and West
over is sanguine that the chap will make a star
at guard Br center.
Wilson, a star end and halfback last year
and one of the sensations of the Nebraska team,
cannot return to school this fall. Wilson's
father, who is a prosperous Iowa ranchman but
lives with his family In Lincoln, has been in
failing health for several months and has been
forbidden by his physician to give any atten
tion whatever to his duties on the ranch. This
has resulted in an edict by the elder Wilson
that the son must abandon the notion of playing
football and hie himself back to the farm.
The newspaper story going the rounds that
the authorities at Minnesota were inclined to
Investigate the amateur standing of Bender, Ne
braska's sensational half and quarterback, with
a view to protesting him, is not causing any
special concern at Nebraska, while Bender his
given it scarcely a moment's thought. Bender
states his side of the ease in the following:
"A protest by Minnesota, or from any other
source, is not worrying me any. I suppose it
a rehash of the old charges by Kansas a year
ago, growing out of my playing summer ball,
but which I disproved by affidavits to the satis
faction of the Nebraska board. I don't be
lieve the authorities at Minnesota university in
spired the protest story, but if they did theii
efforts will not be of any avail."

men to fltt in the gaps left by Captain Abbott,
Fogg, Chamberlain, Vanderboom, Baine and
Washer of last years' team. Only four mem-
breS of the 1903 Wisconsin team are left to form
a nucleus for this year's team. Remp, who
played the center position last year, will again
be back at his old position. Bertke, who was
picked for the all-western team, still has two
more years to play, and will again be put at

for the badger team last year, will be in his old
position at left tackle. Thompson, Edge, Fitz
gerald and O'Brien, substitutes last year, are
candidates for the guard and tackle positions.
Convill, a new man, who halls from Michigan,
appears to have a show at right tackle. Dono
van, who played on Iowa university team last
year, will take law at Wisconsin and ought to
have a chance for the vacant guard position.
Both of these new men tip the beam over 190
pounds, and are said to be fast and shifty.
There are thirteen candidates trying for the
vacant right position. Jones, Hart, Perry and
Fleischer of the last year's subs will make a
hard fight. Coach Curtis will have a hard task
to develop a man for the quarterback position,
as Schieber and Kuemstad are the only two
The coaches will have to make an entire new
back field, but that will fcot be such a hard
task, as almost all of the new men are back
field men. Acker and De Lapp, two Colorado
men, arc touted as wonders for the halfback
positions. If Vanderboom is allowed to play the
back positians need not worry the coaches. Clark
who played fullback the last part of the season,
Is back again and will again try for the place.
Schneider, the Northwestern academy fullback,
has decided to enter Wisconsin, and will also
be a candidate for the back position.
The find of the season is said to be Strom
quist, who played at full on Kansas last year.
Stromqnlst is said to be one of the fastest and
hardest line plungers in the west.

Fort Gibson, I. T., Sept. 5.The last
scene in the romance of General Sam
Houston and his Cherokee Indian wife,
Talahina Bogers, was enacted yesterday,
when the bones of the Indian woman
were transferred from Wilson's Rock to
the National cemetery here, where they
were interred with military honors.
The burial services were in charge of
the G. A. E. and J. S. Holden, who five
years ago discovered Talahina's grave
and obtained the consent of Colonel West
general inspector of the United States
army, to have her dust removed to the
historical old cemetery at Fort Gibson.
The interment was made in the officers'
circle and was attended with impres
sive ceremonies.
The general first met Talahina aTt
her home in Tennessee and was enam
ored with her charms. In 1828 he was
elected governor of Tennessee. 'When
he learned that the Cherokee maiden
had removed to Indian Territory, he
resigned his high office and leaving
home and friends, went to Fort Gibson
and sought out the Indian woman.
For several years General Houston
laid aside all dreams of fame and lived
with the woman whom he had taken
for his bride.
At the breaking out of the Texas
revolution, however, General Houston's
desire to assist that country to gain in
dependence caused him to leave his
After he had led the Texas troops to
victory and had been elected the first
president of this new republic, his love
for Talanina Eogers led him to write"
imploring her to come to Texas and
share his executive mansion with him.
She replied that she could never fill
such a place and'begged him to excuse
her from leaving her tribe to occupy a
sphere for which she was not fitted.
In 1838 Talahina died of pneumo
nia and heT body was buried at Wil
son's Rock on the Arkansas river.
