Tickled to Death with
Special to The Journal.
Burlington, Iowa, Mai eta 27.It rained all day
yesterday, and the best that Manager Kelley of
Minneapolis and his fomteen plajers could do
in ihe way of limbering up for the piactice
foi the season was to stroll about the streets,
in raincoats and umbrellas trying to discover
some attraction worthv of their notice. Billiaid
halh claimed a good majority in the afternoon,
and those who weie not tired out by tbeli tr
in from Minneapolis made a tour of the local
Manager Kelley, with Captain Fox and Fielder
iDavis, took in the classic performance of -'Mac-
'beth," with au alleged imitation of the scenery
and costumes used in the original performance,
and said that they enjoyed it, iltho local critics
pionounced the play a trifle off color. Ihe Gai
rick theater, a popular vaudeville house, claimed
ithe gieater part of the team, the remainder
spending the evening at the toiler skating nnk
,in the Company armoiy, where the team be
gan practice today.
Umpire Brennan of St. Paid, who officiated
In the Iowa league last season, came down with
the team from St Paul, and yesterday was
doing the honors for Mi. Kelley. Before that
'.gentleman had had time to partake of luncheon
.Brennan had led him off thru the rain to the
office of Frank C. Norton, until this year presi
dent of the Iowa league, who is the fountain
ihead of all things baseball in this city. Mr.
Norton was delighted to meet Kelley, and took
fclm down to the office of the Burlington Lumbei
company, where thej inteiviewed Captain elect

lose of the armory for the pieliminary workouts
Of the team. Mr Woelhall piomised to bring
,the matter np before the company at their
weeklv drill Monday evening, with the assurance
'that there would be no difficulty in arranging
jfor the use of the big hall.
Mr. Kelley last evening made arrangements
.for thirty uniforms, two for each man. The
nuiform will be identical with those worn by
the team last season, white with red trimmings
lor the games in Minneapolis and gray with red
trimmings for the contests on the road.
All was not pleasure foi the team yesterday,
end especially foi Manager Kelley, however.
Least of all was the iain muddy weather, but
it helped. JThe biggest annojance of the day
came when Mr. Kelley discovered that the
irooms for the team, so carefully selected several
flays ago bv Manager Egan of the local club,
would not do at all "'I would be ashamed to
veil suggest to the men that they put up
.those rooms said Mr Kellej with a grimace
iwhen recounting his expeifences in the lobb
of the Union hotel last evening. "They were
simplv impossible ThPt is the way the rooms
seemed to me. It was kind of Egan to take
the trouble to feecuie the looms for us. hut they
will not do at all The only thing to do was
to allow omselve8 to fall victims to the hotel

"Half of the men I have quartered in the

running the team We cannot get meals ai
the hotels, however, at anything like a leason
able figure and so I guess we will have to form
up into a little procession when meal times come
around and marehj to the restaurant where Egan
ai ranged for us fo eat We have secured ex
clusive use of the baths at one of the barber
shops, where we can also leave oui baseball
clothes. Burlington is a nice town, what little
I have seen of it. and we are all pretty well
satisfied. This rain is enough to make any
place look dismal, tho
This morning bright and early the team went
to the armory and spent two hours in limbering
up. The rooms are used for a roller skating
rink three lfternoons in the week and, until
the weather iieimits of outdoor work, the men
will have to look on on these days. All are
anvious to get bus?.
Mr. Kelley said last night that there is some
chance of persuading Shortstop Oyler to letuiu

diamond and enjov life as a private citizen, but
tho team does not want him to. Yesterday
Fox, Freeman and Fold wrote personal letters to
him at his home in Newville, Pa., importuning
him to come back and play ball. Mr Kelley
was hopeful last night that these letters might
have a good effect on Oyler. Toot Thompson is

GATES TOO FAST
"$40,000 a Throw" Was What
Caused Loss of Alabama
Journal Special Service.
Birmingham, Ala., March 27.John W. GateB
is in the city and the lid has been taken off.
It will lemain off so long as he stays here,
and the hope is expressed that before he leaves
town theie will be some play calculated to
startle Monte Carlo or Saratoga.
Mr. Gates came to the "Pittsburg of
south" on Saturday, ostensibly to purchase a few
million dollars' worth of coal and Iron mines,
and he devoted his first day in town looking
over the property in question. He passed most
of Sunday at the Country club, the most ex
clusive organization of the kind In Alabama.
The membership is confined to steel and coal
barons who have come to the surface since the
discovery of rich deposits In this neighborhood.
Reports that Gates had dropped $36,000 at
poker dice in Hot Springs just before he started
for Birmingham caused much enthusiasm among
the members of the Alabama club, with which
the leading players of this city are connected,
and immediately a pool of $40,000 was formed
and a committee was appointed to wait on
Gates and invite him to a "no-limit" entertain
ment, at which he could name the biand of
game, to include anything from faro to pitching
When the committee called at Gates' hotel
yesterday they found Mr. Gates prepared to go
for a spin in an auto to the Country club, and
he smiled blandly when they made known the
object of their visit. "Forty thousand," he
commented "well, so long as there is no limit,
we will match coins for $40,000 a throw."
The members of the committee are biave men,
but they paled perceptibly as Gates bowed and
rode away. Nevertheless they hope to entertain
him before he leaves the city.

Chicago, March 27.Alarm over the possible
death of baseball at Northwestern university
has led to a call for a mass meeting this after
noon of all students interested in the game
to discuss ways and means for the support of
a team this season.
The following question will be put to those
who attend the meeting: "Do you, as a stu
dent or facultj member of Northwestern uni
versitv, want a baseball team'' If so, are you
willing to lend your moral end financial aid?"
Cards will be presented for signature, pledg

are signed at the mass meeting, the matter
will be laid before the professional depart

MINNEAPOLIS TEAM WON
Little Falls Did Not Defeat Central
Five at Basketball.
To The Sporting Editor of The Journal,
I noticed in your Sunday paper the statement
that the Little Falls high school defeated Central
in a game of basketball in Little Falls. This
statement is not true. The Minneapolis boys
defeased the Little Falls teem by the score of
15 to 12.
There was no displute about time being called
on the part of the Central high team. There
was about a minute left to play and by some
dirty play on the part of the Little Falls boys,
one of them ran into Cahaley and knocked him
down and hurt him. He, however, called time
and the whistle was blown. The Little Falls
team did not seem to hear it and after shooting
a number of times for the basket finallv suc
ceeded in puttlnc the ball thru the ring. As
time had been called by Referee Chase the
basket did not count. The Little Falls boys dis
puted this decision and while doing so time was
called by Timekeeper Lvnch.
Central played at Aitkin Fridav night for the
championship 0 the state. Tliev defeated the
borne team in one of the cleanest games played
by either team this year, by the score of 42-15.
The feature of the game was the refereeing
of G. L. Lynch, physical director of the St.
Cloud normal. After the game the Aitkin girls
gave the teams an elaborate banquet.
Yours truly. Charles M. Parker,
Manager Central B. B.

DRAWING THE LINES
Washington, March 27.The Joekev club
stewards apparently mean to live up to the agree
ment which it is said to have made ith Dr.
Spicer to restrict betting as much as possible.
S. S. Howland, brother-in-law of August Bel
mont, and presiding steward at Benninjs track,
gave orders yesterday afternoon that only those
betting agents who conlh furnish c?sh to the
amount of $3,000 would be permitted to accept
bets in the clubhouse.
This sum was to be held by the club as a
"guarantee" of good faith for the proper settle
ment of all wagers. It was declared by the
officials, but was really used as a lever to force
out some of the small ajrents and thus confine
betting to limited numbers of members and
That the officials are In earnest to curtail
the betting as much as possible was shown
when they refused to permit Pierre Lorillard's
agent, Dehlman, to work unless he paid over
the $5,000. Lorillard was willing to go his
agent's bond for the monej, but it was refused.
The sophomores hold the girls' basketball
championship at Central high. The tournament

In the final match for tbe championship, tbe

Hoppe and Slosson Meet Tonight
for the First
Journal Special Service,
New York, March 27.The eyes of the bll
Hard world will be upon the Grand Central
palace. New York, tonight. The result of the
championship match between Willie Hoppe and
Geoigo Slosson is being eagerly awaited thru
out Europe as well as from coast to coast In
this country. The one competitor Is a mere bov,

his yearB. the other a veteran campaigner, but
still called a "student
When tie young champion of the world and
the veteian of more than thirty year's' ex
perience engage in their contest for the world's
title at 18-irch balk line, one shot in, more
than four' years will have elapsed since that
particular stjle of game was played in this
Jacob Schaefer won the championship in 1901,
took it to Paris with him and there it passed
into the keeping of the aged Parisian. Maurice
\ignaux. Then Hoppe, just IS years old, crossed
the water from the west and In Januarv last
took away the title from Vignaux in Paris.
Not a New Thing.
It is no new condition in billiards for a
youth not old enough to vote to be pitted
against one who has had a sufficient earthly
sojourn to have cast his ballot for seven presi
dents. It is the rule that biUlard masters
reach prominence in their callow days. The
Dions, Daly, Slossons, Vignaux, Schaefer, Sex
tons. Ives and Wallace all attained to cham
pionship class in their early days.
Student and prodigy have been hard at wors
for several weeks preparing for tonight's im
portant tourney. Hoppe is the favorite despite
the fa.ct that the two are playing in about
the same form, both averaging about the same
score, 33 1-3 at 300 points. The match is to be
at 600 points.
In one practice game the student made the
300 points in six innings. Hoppe's best run in
practice foi the match was 197, and Slosbon
has run more than 100 several times. The
test comes when the real Issue is at stake,
when the strain is on.
Hoppe was 9 years old when he first began
playing. It is not so long ago that he had to
climb upon the table to make his shots, but'
now he has a good reach. The youngster's pub
lie career has been brief, but successful.
Hoppe has Schaefer's ease and naturalness of
manner and also the wizard's light touch. There
is nerve and dash to his play, a sang froid
that nothing disturbs. His is a forearm and
wrist stroke, the wrist being limp and the
hand slightly curved Inwardlv. Yet it has not
the riglditj of Slosson's stroke.
Most of Hoppe's work in practice for this
match has been rather wide. He says that in
the 18.1 game, which does not permit of the
nursing that 18 2 does, he prefers to play the
balls a bit wide, as the muscles stay freer than
when making the shorter stroke for close nurs
ing He is a superb all-round player.
Slosson's friends say he never plaved better
billiards than he is playing and his \sork in
practice bears out the assertion The student
has taken part in more than fifty matches and
His last big contest was in the 18 2 champion
ship in Paris in 1903. when he finished last to
Cure, Sutton and Vignaux. An ocean trip and poor
health upset him in that tourney. He won tho
181 championshin from Sehnefer, Ives. Dalev
and Sutton in 1897. and lied with Barutel for
second money in the 18.1 tourney in 1901

NELSON THINKS HE
WILL WHIP HERRERA
Journal Special Service.
New York, March 27.Referring to his com
ing battle with Herrera, Battling Nelson said
before leaving for Los Angeles:
"Now as to my opinion as to whether I can
beat him in our coming fight, all I have to say
is that I whipped him when I was his sparring
partner, gave him an awful beating in our
twenty-round fight and am equally confident that
I will again get th better of him. I have
improved since our Butte engagement, while he
certainly has not. I should say he is about
the same, with perhaps a little more confidence
in himself. I am seven or eight years his
junior and have not dissipated as he has. I
feel safe in predicting to my friends that I
will be returned the winner of this fight.
"How long it will go I do not know, and
you can depend on it that I will try to end
the fight as quickly as possible. But don't
think for a minute that I expect to get the de
cision without plenty of trouble from the Mex
ican. Another thing is that Herrera is very
game and can take a good punching. Any man
would have something to boast of after getting
the better of Aurelio Herrera."

strongest military teams in this vicinity. This
narrows the championship for independent teams
