American - National
League Merger.
All the Midwinter News and Gossip
From Base Ball
A special from Philadelphia Bays that
Manager William J. Shettslino of tne Na
tional League club of that city is authori
ty for the statement that the differences
now existing in that organization are like
ly to be settled within the next two weeks,
lie said:
"The time has come -when something
must be done, and 1 fully expect to see the
two factions reunited and the league placed
on a solid basis with the same cities in the
circuit that composed it last year. From
which side the overtures for peace will
come I cannot say. but let it suffice that
when the critical moment arrives all will
put their shoulders to the wheel, and the
league will move on. In the event of the
two factions failing to get together, which
is not likely, the Philadelphia. Brooklyn,
Chicago and Pittsburg teams will play out
the season as a four-club league."
For some days there has been a persistent
rumor that the Spalding end of the Na
tional League and the American League
would be merged; that in iioston, Chicago
and Philadelphia the two clubs would con
solidate. and that the Baltimore team would
be transferred to Brooklyn, i.ie rumor was
that the club in Philadelphia would play at
National League park; that it would be
managed by Connie Mack, and that Mana
ger Shettsline would be the financial secre
tary. Manager Shettsline emphatically de
nied the story.
Manager Connie Mack of the Athletics
"The idea is preposterous. Conditions
would prevent such a scheme, even if it
were In contemplation, which it is not. The
Philadelphia American League club is able
to stand on its own- bottom without help
from the National League, and the situa
tion is precisely the same as that of last
year. I look to see two clubs in Philadel
phia for many years to come. There can
never be any deal between the two clubs?
at least while I act as manager of the
American League club."
Plungers From Texas Make Big Win
Yesterday was one of the best days finan
cially that the talent has had this winter
at the Crescent City Jockey Club track, New
Orleans. They backed four winners heav
ily. If Nyx, at 20 to 1, had not come to the
bookmakers' rescue in the last race sev
eral of the pencilers would have been in
sore straits to find money to pay off with.
The Texas plungers secured the greatest
share of the money taken from the ring.
They backed McWilllams, Sevoy and Par
nassus for large amounts. The odds
against this trio ranged from 8 to 5 against
Sevoy to 4 to 1 against Parnassus.
All the horses with the exception of Se
voy won easily. McWilliams took the open
ing race In a gallop. Parnassus showed the
way to his opponents In the second all the
way and won by four lengths.
Sevoy was first in the handicap by a
small margin after a hard drive. He got
off badly. In order to get to the front he
had to use up the greater part of his speed
and strength.
The stewards are still probing for fraud
in connection with the Jumping races. They
will not divulge any names, but they claim
that an eastern Jockey, several owners and
a western bookmaker are implicated in the
alleged combination to "fix" the results. A
decision will be rendered in a few days.
Jockey Dale was suspended pending an In
vestigation of his riding in recent races.

Hegelman and Cavanaugh Still Lead
Features of the fourth day of the six-day
go-as-you-please race at Madison Square
Garden, New York, yesterday were the re
markable stamina displayed by the surviv
ing teams and the persistent manner In
which Hegelman and Cavanaugh continued
to hold their twenty-mile lead. In spite of
apparent suffering, the competitors kept
pluckily at their task, each trying hard to
improve his position.
Fahey and Metkus gained two .miles on
Shelton and Guerrero during the afternoon.
Metkus is the sprinter of the team and is
responsible for the gain.
The most pathetic incident of tne race de
veloped early yesterday when Gilbert
Barnes, the old war veteran, announced his
retirement from the race after receiving a
telegram informing him that his wife was
dying at Spriugdale, Pa. The old fellow
cried like a child.
Davis, the Indian, had a crying spell yes
terday. The cause of his grief was due to
the t>oor form of his team mate. Davis
would race at a fast clip, gaining several
laps every time he appeared. Carroll, on
relieving the Indian, would lose the ground
gained by the redskin.
The score at 1) p. m. was:
Miles. Laps.

Lower Canvas of 10,000 Feet and
Spread of 22,049 Feet.
In the lower sails of Emperor William's
new schooner yacht, the Meteor, there are
10.000 square feet of canvas. When the
yacht Is on a broad reach and she is carry
ing her Immense balloon sails she will
spread 22.049 square feet of canvas. From
the end of the club topsail sprit to the
water It will be ISO feet, and from the end
of the bdwsprit to the end of the malnboom
the distance Is 190 feet. These figures will
give an idea of the size of the yacht now
n< arlng completion.
When finished the Meteor will be the
largest pleasure schooner afloat, her dimen
sions being 120 feet on the water Una, 100
feet over all. 27 feet beam. 18 feet 8 inches
depth and 15 feet draught. The designer
says with a smile that if the emperor ever
desires to give a ball on deck he will have
ample room to do so. as with awnings set
and curtains at the side the deck will be
both pleasant and comfortable.
Almost every day now Mr. A. Gary Smith,
the designer of the yacht* Is at the ship
yard on Shooters' Island, in Newark bay,
watching the work. The launching ways
are being placed under the boat. The bot
tom of the hull Is cemented and the tanks
are being tested. The forward deck Is
laid, the hatches and skylight coamings
are In place, the steel house aft has been
riveted and the outside finish of teak has
been put on.
This deck house will serve as the main
companion leading below, and in addition
will be used in dirty weather and will al
low a view of what is taking plac$ on
The sails that will be used on the trip
across the 6cean and for cruising are being
made by Messrs. Wilson & Griffin, of New
York city, but the racing sails of the yacht,
in accordance with the emperor's wishes,
will be made by Messrs. Ratsey & Lap
thorn of England. During the last visit to
New York of the Benlor member of- the
latter firm he had frequent consultations
with Mr. Cary Smith, and obtained the
measurements necessary, so that the Me
teor's racing suit will be ready soon after
her arrival abroad.
Bice Won From Callahan.
Austin Rice won from "Tim" Callahan in
the fifteenth round of their fight at St.
Louis last night. It was on a decision by
the referee.
Rice was completely eclipsed In weight,
height and reach, but he kept boring in
and forcing the fighting. Callahan confined
himself chiefly to left-hand jabs, but Rice
evaded them and was very proficient in the
same line of fighting.
The bout was one of the fastest and most
scientific seen in St. Louis in many months,
although at times it was somewhat marred
by fouling on the part of both men in the
clinches. Rice weighed in at 122 and Calla
han at 12(5 pounds. Rice says he is willing
to fight any feather-weight in the world.
Columbian University Athletes.
There has been a glorious awakening of
enthusiasm shown by the students of the
Columbian University upon the organiza
tion of an athletic association. Several
meetings have been held and officers
President Altschu has called a meeting
for Saturday night, when the students will
be addressed by Dr. Hodgkins and others
of the university. The call for candidates
for the various teams will be given in a
few days, and it is expected that a largt
number will respond. The college has al
ready received base ball challenges fron.
several nearby colleges, and when the uni
versity's association is circularized many
more will be expected.
Since Georgetown and Virginia have sev
ered relationship it will be Columbian's
duty to give the Washingtonians the ac
customed game with the boys from Char
Hit McGovern on the Nose.
Trainer Mayhood Wednesday consented to
allow the boys who box with Terry McGov
ern at his quarters, near Cincinnati, to go
after his nose, and he received several Jabs
on the proboscis. He first put the gloves
on with his brother Hugh, who at once
went at McGovern like a whirlwind, and
landed a short jab on his brother's nose.
McGovern flinched for a minute, but stated
later that Is was only because he was un
accustomed to it, and that, while It felt a
little peculiar, yet it did not hurt him in
the least. The blow was a hard one, and
this demonstrated that his nose is now in
good condition.
Eugene Bezenah also took a turn with
McGovern, and fought four hard rounds.
Ryan Got Decision Over Daly.
At the New London (Conn.) Opera House
Wednesday evening, Billy Ryan of Syracuse
received the decision over Tommy Daly of
New York In a twenty-round bout, which
went the limit. Both boxers fought a draw
there a few days ago and a thousand per
sons were In attendance last night. Daly
was on the aggressive the first half of the
bout, but Ryan played a waiting game and
apparently relied upon his experience in the
ring to wear his opponent out. Daly's nose
was tapped in the second round and his
left eye nearly closed in the twelfth, but he
fought gamely and was still In good con
dition and fighting fast when the final gonR
sounded. Ryan outclassed his adversary in
scientific work, but Daly kept the Syracuse
boy guessing with his terrific left-handed
swings, that would have put Ryan sleep
several times only for his shiftiness.

Base Ball Notes.
Charley Nichols Is after George Yeager
for his Kansas City team.
The Eastern League looks stronger than
ever this year, and will have four dubs
where Sunday ball can be played.
Barry McCormick, who played third base
for the Chicago National League team last
season, has signed to play with the St.
Louis American League team.
Catcher Fred Abbott, who has signed
with Cincinnati, reported to the New Or
leans club and wants to shake the Reds.
King, the best second baseman in the
California League, has accepted the terms
offered him by Manager Shetisline of the
Philadelphia* National League club.
Roy E. Clarke, formerly captain of Brown
University foot ball team, has signed with
Freedman's G'arets.
Big Ben Simonton, who made a grand
record as pitcher for the Washington C. H.
team last season, has signed with the
Cleveland club of the American League for
ntxt season.
Pltoher Frank McPartlin of Hooslc Falls,
N. Y., who pitched for Rochester last year,
has sent his terms for the coming season
to the Chicago team of the National
Manager McGraw ordered from A. G.
Spalding uniforms for his players. They
will play in white clothes at home and in
gray and black In other c'tles. The uni
forms will be ready before March 25, when
the club goes to Savannah, Ga., for prac
George Tebeau of the Louisvilles has of
fered contracts to Harold Gribbins and
"War" Sanders, and they will sign with
him at once. Gribbins played last season
with Atlanta and SanderB with Nashville
In the Southern League.
The Connecticut superior court has de
cided that New York has no right to Dan
Murphy, and that the Boston National
League club, whloh bought Murphy from
Manager Jimmy Canavan of the New Ha
vens in the middle of last season. Is due to
pay Canavan the $500 agreed upon.
Manager McGraw of the Baltimore club,
who ha? been sick, was able to get down
town yesterday. He said the question as
to where Willie Keeler would play this
year had not been determined upon by that
Lowe will be missed at Boston. The ele
gant way he covered third base last season
Is still vivid in the memory of the fans. A
strong trio remain In the Infield in Tenney,
Dcmont and Long, and there Is material
for a first-class outfield.?Boston Globe.
There are few more successful minor
league managers in base ball than John F.
Smith of the Manchester club of the New
England League. Phenomenal Smith was
the finest left-handed pitcher in this coun
try when he played for the Baltimore
American Association years ago.
"Billy" Shlndle, the once famous third
baseman, who in days gone by has been
connected with Baltimore. Detroit, Brook
lyn and Philadelphia (Brotherhood) teams,
and w*\P is spending the winter at Glouces
ter. to? signed to play third base and cap
tain Tom Burns' Jersey City Eastern
League dub next season.
Pitcher Charlie Nichols says that Andrew
Freedman has acquired a controlling in
terest in the Boston National League club.
That is the reason President Soden has
changed in his view toward A. G. Spalding.
Picking the pennant winner In the Ameri
can League race of 1902 Is a tough propo
sition. A man who will accept less than
4 to 1 Is swayed by enthusiasm and parti
sanship. Six of the clubs are pennant
probabilities, Washington is a possibility
and Cleveland alone is not considered by
experts to have a chance. St. Louis will
ba represented by a first-class team and
if the luck of the game breaks with Mc
Aleer's men they will be in at the finish.^
The St. Louis team will be the best adver
tised team in the race and will have a
loyal following at home. If they get a
good start they will have the class to
carry them through the crucial stages of
the race.?Sporting News.
"That boy Strang I have always consid
ered a good player since he broke into fast
company," says First Baseman Isbell of
the Comlskey champions. "He would have
been one of the wonders of the year last
season if he had been wKh any other team
than New York. That bunch spoiled him
for sure. You know what he was doing at
ths beginning of the year, when the team
was winning. He was batting away up on
ths tap shelf, and was fielding as well as
any of the emck third basemen in the bus

Mner flashing' out In the field you can say to
yourself, 'out,' for a ball that can get away
from the fleflders Comiskey has will have to
be over the flagpole or over the fence. But
the batters are not very likely to get them
over very often, because the pitchers we
have can do a few stunts In the box. Con
nie Mack has a strong team, I know, and
so have Boston. St. Louis and Baltimore,
but they will have to do some tall hustling
to beat the 'champs.' "?Chicago American.
"Dummy" Hoy, 'tis whispered. Is going
to be turned adrift by Comiskey, and, if the
report turns out tojbe correct. It will be
"to the minors" with him, as there Isn't a
manager In the National or American who
would care to take a' chanee wkh the mute,
who, crack a player?'as he was for many
years. Is about down and out now. Hoy
will be thirty-seven years old In May, so
ranks as one of the oldesrt players In fast
company at the present time. He played
in the northwest up to 1888, when he joined
the Washington team, and the first crack
out of the box led the entire brigade In pil
fcrlng bases, besides standing well to the
fore among the stickers and run-gettera
He remained with the Senators until the
Players' League was formed, when he was
landed by Buffalo. The following season he
went to St. Louis, fitting the center suburb
for the Browns. In 1892 he rejoined the
Senators: then wen# to Cincinnati, where
he remained until traded to Louisville. That
was his last engagetnent^in the National
League, and ever since Comiskey has been
in Charge of the Chicago Americna League'
club the "dummy" has been his regular
center fielder. His work last year was
fairly good, but not quite as fast as in the
past, and, as "Commie" is so wel fortified
as to fly-chasers, he has about made up his
mind to count ten upon the mute. Herm
McFarland, another one of Comiskey's fly
gatherers in 1901, is slated for release. He is
the lad who was tipped off as the new St.
Louis team's regular right fielder up to the
time that Jimmy McAleer used some of
Col. Hedge's spare change and induced
Davy Jones to desert Jim Hart's forces.
Items of Interest From the Western
