'NEW RULES ADOPTED AMERICAN LEAGUE TO GO INTO NEW YOBK NEXT SEASON. Favori.es in Front at New Orleans? Pillsbury and Maroczy Tied in Monte Carlo Chess Tourney. The announcement made In last evening's Star that the prices of admission to the American League games in this city would i l?e advanced next season created a great j deal of talk among the local "fans," and j many protests were registered by those pen i pie who want to see every game, but are j compelled to go into the "bleachcrs" on ac ! count of the expense. A telegram was sent to Manager Loftus. In Detroit, inquiring as to the prices of admission, but tho reply i came too late for last night's paper. Mr. Loftus said: "Prices of admission will be 75, 50 and 25 rents. The patrons of the "bleachers' needn't worry, as we will take good care of them." This will he good news to the regulars and will make many friends for the now mnnager. The only alteration in the stands will be to rectify the lines of the right field "bleachers." which will be moved back about twelve feet, bo as to anow a clear view from the right end of the grand stand. This move was contemplated last season. The occupants of the "bleachers' will have Just as good a view of the field as before. A barbed wire fence will be stretched in front of the "bleacher" seats this season, so as to prevent the crowd getting Into the field before the game has been concluded. Last season the rush of the "bleacherltes" caused considerable trouble to both contest ing teams, and frequently the games had to be stopped until the police had pushed the crowd back into the seats or off the field. Forced to liaise Prices. The American League, In deciding to raise Its price of admission, was compelled to take that course by the wholesale engage ment of National League players at large salaries. When the American League first branched out as a major organization the salary lists of the organization were of re spectable proportions, but the new players signed have swelled the pay roll to such an extent that it became a necessity to ad vance the prices. President Johnson and his followers know well that the base ball en thusiasts will not kick on the extra 25 cents, provided players of reputation are seen. As almost all the stars of the Na tional League have been gobbled up that end of the argument hrs been clinched Ther- is only one player on the pav roll of the Washington club who will receive less and a 'j'ff majority will get Jo.Ofto ard over. The same can be said of every other American League club, with the possible exception of Cleveland In de ciding to Increase the tariff, the American League men could not see why they should pro\ide base ball by high-salaried stars for less admission rates than those charged by fJpasue- of which a majority of the clubfc have nothing left but minor league talent. Invasion of New York. The new tariff means that the American League will not only live through the com ing season, but will also be fortified in its plans to Invade New York next fall, re gardless of the National League. Ihat the Ameri an League is practically determined to go into New York next year and Perhaps make changes in the western ? ?.

By resolution President Johnson was em powered tv? make his headquarters wher ever he thinks it will best subserve the intere-ts of the league.

John * ci 88 id r "We shall make no changes this year you can say that for me; but we shall lT in New York next year without doubt." President Postal Content. Fred. Postal, president of the Washington club, was all smiles and said that whateve Johnson does will be all right, so It Is taken for grunted that hi- Is not apprehensive that the Senators will be dropped from the league. So far as changes in the western end ore concerned, they rest with the ability of t leveland and Detroit to make money with arss jara'"1 su"<i??">"<?<> liile the matter of expansion did not come up at the meeting in 8u many words it .s given out that the American Leagu" is for peace and no opposition. The plan favored la two eight-club circuits In har mony operating under a new agreement to be drawn up in the fall, and the settle j ment of the whole matter rests with John i Hull. The Playing Rules. The playing rules, as amended, and al tered at tho Buffalo conference, were adopted, excepting the section relating ta foul strikes, which remains unchanged. Every club wa3 represented at the final sessions. Much Is believed to have been done and discussed which was not eiven out, but which will become public in time. Catcher James McGulre reached Detroit yesterday from Albion, giving rise to tho story that he may yet Join the Detroits Re spite his statement that he will report to Hani on on March 25. Johnson said he un derstood Brooklyn had violated a contract with McGulre, which made him eligible A banquet was given last night to visit ing club owners and reporters by the De troit and Washington owners, and Mayor Maybury paid a fitting tribute to the hon esty and attractiveness of the national warne. Judges Phelan and Murphy also spoke, and the affair was a grand suc NEW ORLEANS RACES. Five Favorites and a Second Finish in Front. Many eyes looked with feverish anxiety for the placing of tho winner of the last raoe at the Crescent City Jockey Club, New Orleans, yesterday afternoon. When Myn heer's number was posted a sigh of relief escaped from the lips of Beveral plungers who had backed him heavily. Mynheer was considered to so far out class his opponents In the race that the bookmakers placed the figures 1 to G oppo site his name, and considered themselves nothing short of philanthropists in giving away what they considered '-sure money." Four or Ave of the plungers who speculate small fortunes on races they consider cer tainties jumped at the odds quoted and bet all the money the bookmakers would accept on Mynheer's chance. The horse won, but the plungers received such a scare that several of them did not recover from the effects of it for two or three hours. lie got off well, lay in a good position to the head of the stretch, but "hung" when asked to challenge Algie M., the leader. If the latter had not quit In tho final fifty yards, thus allowing Mynheer to hsad her, th? positions of debtor and creditor would have been reversed between the bookmak ers and the plungers. As It was, Mynheer got ills head In front In the last stride and won by a few Inches. The success *of the first four favorites played sad havoo with the pencliters' bunk rolls. Then came a break ia the sequence of the form players' luck, Little Vllktn at t> to 2 breaking the spell of good fortune.

When Boralma was matched against the two New York owned cracks. The Abbot, 2 03>4. and Lord Derby. 2.06%, It was de cided to leave the scene of battle to be de cided by sealed bids closing March 1 with the stakeholder. So far as has been learned A. J. Welch of Charter Oak and Oakley tracks at Hartford and Cincinnati was the only Important bid der. It was rumored that Providence want ed one of the big plums of the trotting sea son. and Readvllle, the home track of Boralma, was expected to be in line to se cure one or both. New York was thought to be r favorable site, as both Boralma's competitors huil from there, and again as Boralma. never having raced In New York, should prove of himself a drawing card. Mr. Welch and his partner. Orlando Jones, have offered. It Is stated. 00 per cent of the gate and grand stand receipts and leave the choice of tracks to the owners. That Char ter Oak Park would be favored seems the consensus of opinion, inasmuch as New York horsemen would attend largely, it being within easy riding distance of that city. Boralma was defeated there in a fierce contest of live heats by Ix>rd Derby last fall, and a small fortuue cnanged hands on the result, the New Haven turfman, N. E. Hubinger. it was then stated, netting nearly $20,000 by hedging to the Lord Derby end of the selling at an opportune moment. Mr. Welch's offer will doubtless be accept ed Mr. Scannell is agreeable to that site and Mr. Smathers said before leaving for Palm Beach recently that he would race anywhere agreeable to Mr. Lawson.

Many Improvements Completed and Admission Increased to Grand Stand. The improvements that were begun at the Renning race course last summer have now been completed and today visitors at the track will see one of the best appointed courses in America. The street car company will have a large, covered station near the entrance to the track. The roadway from the street cars to the entrance to the grand stand Is now a wide boulevard; the narrow plank walk is now broad and covered and leads direct ly to the stand and pavilion. The ladies' club house now looks out on a wide piazza. The secretary's office has been enlarged; the jockeys' room has been made one of the largest in the United States and Is connected with a shower bath room. The handsome stand built last summer has had many additions and Improvements. The entire north end has been inclosed with heavy plate glass windows and big sky lights have been placed In the front. The ladles' cafe has been enlarged, as have the ladles' cloak rooms. The entire stand has been painted in white with the girders In black. The lay ers' pavilion has been widened the entire length, and it Is believed that the patrons will now have no difficulty or crowding in reaching their favorite layers. The admis sion to track and grand stand will be fl.SO. Nothing has been left undone at Benning and it is claimed to be as complete as any of the great metropolitan tracks. A field stand has been erected and the admission fixed at fifty ccnts. This should prove at tractive to many of the patrons of racing In the District. This stand is comfortable and from it every part of the track can be seen. The track is now in condition for work, and although heavy, horses can be given good strong gallops. Most of the horsea now at the traok will be "ready" by open ing day. March 25. Comments on Mr. Vosburgh's handi capping in the Beiming handicaps are uni versally favorable. The top weights are all close together and It would be hard to pick one entry that has not at least an outside chance. The program book for the first two weeks will be out earlier than usual this year and is now in the hands of the printer. Most of the prominent Jockeys will be here?Odom. Burns, Lynne, Wonderly and Cochran, all have engagements?so the prospects for the approaching meeting are brilliant in every respect and a trip to the track any pleasant day Is well worth the trouble.

A rest of ten minutes was to be taken In case a fall was declared. Hoover weighed 136'i pounds and Herold 1.12 pounds. A. Schoenlein was referee. The wrestling was strictly on Its merits anil was very interesting. Herold got a neck hold and put Hoover on his back in three and one-half minutes. In the second bout Herold appeared to be satisfied and did nothing but defensive work. Hoover worked hard, but met little success until there was but three minutes' wrestling time left. Then he got a leg hold and put Herold on his back, but only for a moment. It was long enough for the referee to sea it. and lie awarded Hoover a fall. Each having a fall the bout was declared a draw. * Charles J. Weiss, manager of Herold, agreed to let his man meet Hoover in this city under the same conditions, offering to back his man for any amount from $50 up. American to Row With Oxford. John G. Mflburn.

BANQUETED IN BOSTON. j Prince Henry Responds Felicitously to the Toasts, | A dispatch from Boston last night says: The heartiest part of Boston's formal wel come to Prince Henry was concentrated In the banquet at the Somerset this evening. To the sentiments expressed there his royal | hlghn?esa made a formal response. The hall ! was lavishly decorated, yellow being the j predominating floral color. I The prince's entry Into the hall accom panied by Mayor Collins was hailed with 1 cheers. At the proper time the mayor made ! his preliminary speech and called for a toast t-o the President of the United States, Immediately following this by a call for a toast to Emperor William of Germany. Both of these were drunk with cheers. An orchestra stationed Just outside the banquet hall played appropriate selections. Prince Henry was then introduced and spoke as follows: "Mr. Mayor and' Gentlemen: In giving expression to m}' thank# for the cordiality of the reccptlorr tendered me I beg to say that I shall endeavor to-realize that I am the guest of a city the predominant pride of whose Inhabitants, I am informed, makes j them look upon It 'as the hub of the uni verse.

Wentworth Higginson, a sol dier of the civil war. The last response I was from Mr. Richard Olney, ex-Secretary I of State. The banquet came to an end with three hearty cheers for the prince. The prince and his suite then retired to their apart ments. reappearing a few minutes later for departure -or the residence of J. Mont gomery Sears, where a reception was ten dered the prince by the Thursday Evening Club. At this reception, which was en tirely informal, his royal highness had the opportunity of meeting the representative literary people of Boston. The reception lasted for about an hour, and then the prince and his suite left for their train and for Albany. At the close of the ceremonies in confer ring a degree upon the prince at Harvard, President Eliot handed Prince Henry a ca blegram, which he opened at once. His face lighted up as he read its contents. Ho arose, and said to President Eliot: "If I may speak again, Mr. Chairman and gentlemen. I have this minute re ceived a message from the German em peror. I don't know if among you there are enough to understand my language. (Laughter, and cries of 'Oh, yes.') I am not Joking, gentlemen, because the word ing of the telegram is such I should pre fer to give It as It stands here. It Is ad dressed to me." The prince then read in German, <he cablegram, a correct translation of which fellows: Congratulated by Emperor. "Henry, Prince of Prussia, Harvard* Uni versity, Cambridge: "I congratulate you upon receiving taday the honorary degree of Harvard Univer sity, the highest honor which America can bestow. May the copies of the examples of German art and German civilization which I transmit through you be to the professors as well as to the young acad?mi olans an Incentive throughout their lives and an Inspiring example in the pursuit of German ideals and in the striving for all that exalts and is lasting WILLIAM." Major Higginson then personally led in a cheer for Emperor William, and the met-t ing was'over. Given Long Term in Jail.
