Board of Appeals Could Not Find
Anything Against Oresceus'
XTaw York Sun Special Service,
Chicago, Dec. 0When, after a two hours'
salon yesterday at the Auditorium, the board
of appeals went behind closed doors to agree as
to their verdict, everyone conceded that Attor
ney Brown of Toledo had made out such a strong
case for Ketcham that there was no chance to
connect the owner of Cresceus with the fraudu
lent time made at Wichita, Kan., a year ago last
The board, In arriving at its conclusion, which
was, as anticipated, favorable to Ketcham, says:
"Considering Jordan's last affidavit in the light
of its strength and weight as legal evidence,
particularly in view of its inculpating signifi
cance, and viewing it as compared with his first
affidavit in an attempt to establish what he
knew to be an absolute falsehood, while we may
accept it as Justly measuring his own fault and
as clearly establishing his guilt and convicting
him out of his own mouth, we are yet con
strained to concede that it probably falls some
what short of sufficiency in establishing crimi
nal participation in the claimed fraudulent ar
rangement for an illegitimate record, as far as
Ketcham is concerned. The story detailed by
Jordan is not without considerable corroboration
|n matters of minor detail to a suspicious or
prejudiced mind But as we must view the
case before us wholly from the evidence we
hare acknowledging that the chief factor has
certainly convicted himself of falsehood, and
especially in view of the sweeping and unequiv
ocal denial of direct or indirect partici
pation made by Mr. Ketcham we must and
do determine that the evidence fails to establish
his connection with the fraud and Intrigue lying
at the foundation of this attempted record."
"It is, therefore, ordered and adjudged that
the Southern Kansas association of Wichita,
Kan and Irwin, president thereof, and
8 Tlmdon, Judge, and A O Jordan, Fred
Stearns and Eames, timers, who partici
pated in the anronncemant and establishment of
the fraudulent record for the horse Cresceus at
the Wichita track on Oct. 19, 1908, be and they
aie hereby expelled."
Wichita, Kan,, Deo 9 A 0 Jordan of Lyons,
Kan who is charged with attempted blackmail
bv George Ketchum before the board of appeals
of the American Trotting association, makes an
emphatic denial of the charge
"The things in my affidavit are true said
he "Ketcham came to me the day of Cresceus*
trial and the deal was fixed up He offered me
the services of his horse, Cresceus free of
charge I had no mares, but I offered to do as
he asked I fixed the deal up with Irwin and
Stearns, the other Judges I made no affidavit
pievlous to the one I filed with the association
Of course I made a statement immediately after
the fraud was first charged I never received
anything. I don't know what the others got."
The American league concluded its *ork yes
terday and adjourned to meet in New York at the
call of the president. The most sensational fea
ture of yesterday's session was the agreement to
demand that the case of Jack Taylor, formerly a
pitcher on the Chicago National league team,
charged with having thrown a game played be
tween the Chicago American and National league
clubs be sifted to the bottom
C. W Somers was re elected vice president
and a board of directors, composed of Boston and
Philadelphia In the east and St Louis and De
troit in the west The rules committee will go
to the conference with the National league unln
etructed. The rule limiting each club to sixteen
players was not brought up but President John
eon practically admitted that the rule was a dead
letter The only trade made was that of Buck
Freeman of Boston to St. Louis for Jesse Burk
ctt. The terms were not made public.
Coach yost returned to Ann Arbor today for a
two weeks' stay before leaving until another
football season recalls him. That he will be
here again next year is practically certain, altho
Yost would not commit himself on the subject.
A definite proposition has been made by the
football coach committee of the Wisconsin Ath
letic association to Coach Yost of Michigan. It
cannot be learned what salary is suggested In
the offer, but the fact of the negotiations is
learned on best authority.
Altho sufficient time has elapsed, no answer
has as yet been received from Coach Yost.
The controversy between the friends of Head i Matheson 214
Coach Arthur Curtis and Assistant Coach Eddie
Cochems continues Friends of Cochems have
circulated a petition to the effect that Cochems

have signed the petition. Eemp and Bertke are
*nenibers of the athletic board and did not wish
to sign it for this reason.

Stimulant for Saturday Business
If you're the man behind the ptice, you can buy a lot
of quality and value at the Scotland "Woolen Mills Store

A kind of a climax of all the snaps that have gone
I've already told you about the tailor who threw up
the sponge and turned over his stock of winter goods to me
at a price that would make me ashamed if he hadn't wanted
the* money more than I wanted his stuffs. But he used good
fabrics, and the fact that he got $30, $35 and $40 for "them
doesn't prevent me making them up to order and selling
suits or overcoats at $15. Three hundred pieces of his
materials for Saturday.
Then there are two hundred and sixty-five imported
pieces that we had re-marked for the $15 department. Get
samples from the high priced ones, put them alongside of
these imported things, leave it to some one who doesn't know
which is which, and if he decides in favor of the high priced
tailor we will all*smoke on Mitchell.
Then there are some mighty fine Scotland Mills goods-
winter weights for suits and overcoats. They are the cream
of The Scotland Mills product and these are yours for $15.
Think of winter overcoats at that price.
Everything on the fashion plate at $15.
If you can raise the clothes limit to $20 or $25, you can
get a suit or overcoat made to order from my imported fab-
rics that is the equal of what $50, $55 or $60 will buy any-
where else. MJ
The man who has never had me make a suit or overcoat
may be interested in knowing that I warrant every gar-
ment to please, fit and wear properly. The guarantee goes
i with a Mitchell suit regardless of price.

There is considerable mystery concerned In the
recent meeting of the American Automobile as
sociation officials in New York. At the Automo

gathering and its purpose is refused.
It is believed, however, that the conference

There is a warm contest on for president. The
New England autolats desire the nomination of
