Interesting Contest rI Dpr al Daw~g L~ei-O1hi Wh~pped Grit-4olfers St. Pa~Ineen. Although,the committee- of base bell men representing the National League at the "peace" session with theAmerican IAaguers at Cincinnati today has 4ot been given full power to act, every Qluly of the National League will be represent. at the Ohio city while the committees are in sesslos, The representatives of the Various clubs of the old organisation will be 1here to consider any problem that in put 'to Morn,.Hart, Robinson and Herrmann which may in volve property nferestx or any point on which the committee is In doubt as to its authority to handle. This Is understood to have-been the point insisted on by Ban Johnson after he found that the National Leaguers were not dis posed to confer final powere on their repre sentatives. Magnates of the different clubs or their representatives fully empowered to act will be In close touch with the confe rees, and any point that may come up that the peace committee is unable to handle will be acted upon by the full quota of clubs. Under this arrangement it is con fidently expected that the-Ineeting of the peace committee will be shortened and the prospect of an agreement improved. The American League' committee, con sisting of President Ban Johnson, Varles Comisky and Henry Killileit left Chicago last night in a special car over the Penn sylvania road. President Hart of the Chi cago Nationals left earlier over the Monon, and it was facetiously sutgested to Ban Johnson that his proposed arming of the special car with a Hotchkiss rapid-fire gun was unnecessary. Johnson was in a merry humor and suggested that his. special car be christened the "White Dove" for this trip at least. President Johnson had expected to re ceive a letter from Garry Herrmann, noti fying him of the place of meeting, but at the time of his departure it had not ar rived. It is possible the Laughery Club, Cincinnati, will be the plade selected. The American .Leaguers believe that some place should be selected in the city. This part, -however, has been left to the judgment of Mr. Herrmann. AFTER TRAngINW GROUNDg, Cleveland Gets Inte New Orleans Ahead of Cbicao., New Orleans as a spring tgalning ground is lost to Comiskey's White Stockings. Agents of the Cleveland cltib have leased the ball grounds there, 'nd' Comskey will seek some other ileld ife ilais prospective dhempIons. Several other sputherp cities, no-tably Selma, where the Colts trained in 190% have written to 'if W4fte6k-inag nate, offering 4ndcreemenfs- te the ea-cham plons, but Comiskey * doing some tail thinking.

"Why, every teesq . Rte 4.mercan. and National League is ,ing south to train. and they'll run- the' etMMUon game angel to death. Western dties kre all right.

Callahan will make a business trip east oil three weeks before going to Hot SprIngs around March 1. WAED'S PREDICTION. Says Ball Clubs Will Be Made Up of Local Players Two Decades Hence. John M. Ward. who could have had the National League presidency had he been willing to accept it, has some original views in regard to the future of base ball In a recent article written for asJew York paper he says: "Two decades from now It may be no longer a mere exhibition-for that ts all that it is now-an exhibition of the ability of a clever manager, wits. more money and more tact In managerial council, to get to gether the best players' in the market-t will be a locally patriotic game for blood. "The time is coming when the players, in stead of being brought to play in any team that "calls" them, irrespective of where they live and where the' team is located, will belong in the locality from Wisich the team hails. There Is'a tendency, apparent in that direction already. 'Of course, if this is done there will be some work for the rules committee to do. It 'will be necessary to laave some sort of legislation to apportion the territory fairly annng the teams. New York, being the largest city in the Urdte4 States, by virtue of its size would have the advantage of a smaller city like Boston or Baltimore, -and to even up matters it would be necessary for the committee to give the smaller towna enough territory to make all available popu lation the same. The details must be deeid ed by the events of the future. -Bat I be 1iev. that something like that is about to come and will be the feature of the game of base bell in 192."

The Racing Calendar also prints a list of racing partnerships which have been regis tered with the Jockey Club for the coming season. L. V. Bell and his trainer, J. H. McCormick, are down as the joint owners of Hermis, Colonel Bill, Francesco and other horses that carried Mr. Beli's colors last year. W. C. Whitney and J. E. Madden are registered as the owners of the four year-old City Bank and the three-year-old Bendemeer. Irish Lad and Whorler are still jointly owned by Harry Payne Widtney and Herman B. Duryea, which goes to show that this young racing firm is still Intact -although Mr. Whitney some time ago sold his interest In Acefull to his partner. Turfmen after perusing the entries to the Brooklyn and Suburban handicaps ex pressed the opinion that these big evehts would be more interesting than ever before. The announcement of the weights for both events will not be made before the lst of next month, buteturfmen are already pre dieang that the top weights will be assigned to Hermis, .Major Daingerfield, Gold Heels. Advance Guard and Blues. It is said that most of the horses named for these handi caps have also been nominated for the Brighton handicap, the official list of which will be made public In a day or two. P. J. Dwyer's Merry Acrobat, a son of Handspring, Is heavily engaged in the big three-year-old stakes for this season. He has shown more improvement since he stopped racing at Morris Park last fall than any of the three-year-olds in this part of the country. BOWLING.

Clever.Boxer Gives Italian Champion Severe Drubbing. Joe Grim, the Italian champion, last night took a severe drubbing at the band21 of "Philadelphia Jack" O'Brien In the ring of the Broadway A. C. at Philadelphia. The building was crowded to Its capacity by fol lowers of boxing, among Whom it wag_ generally believed that O'BrIen would knock Grim out In short order. The latter, however, succeeded n lasting the six rounds, although tie scarcely landed a hard blwe In return for the numerous stiff punches he received from OBrien. The champion of England took things easily In the opening round, but In the sec ond he sailed In, and followed four hard rights over the heart with a left to the Jaw tha sent Grim to the floor. The Italian champion was In distress when the round ednded. OeBrien again -eased up In the next two rounds. The fifth was a repetition of the second, and Grim was again knocked down and severely punished. He took the punches mey, but was almost out at the bell. In the last round O'Brien determined to end matters quickly, but Grim resorted to clinching, and thus filled out the time. WHIST MATCEM. Capital Team Defeated Columbia by Five Tricks.

There was a rumor afloat at New Orleans yesterday that some of the men charged by Jockey Penn with complicity in the fraudulent steeplechases of last year will prefer charges of perjury against him. It is said Penn last year swore that the riders Brazil and Ellison were not in the combina tion and had nothing to do with the Axed races. In his recent confession Penn names both riders, and lays particular stress on Ellison's connection with the scheme to "milk" the bookmakers. When the papers in the case are forwarded to the Western Turf Club, the ruling authority in the mat ter, affidavits that Penn made contrary statements under oath will accompany his confession. Pinehurst Golf Handicap. A golf handicap for men was played at Pinehurst, N. C., yesterday under very un favorable weather conditions.

Oliver of New York. Edwin A. Freeman of Montclair, N. J.. won the prise. with 86, 4-82. The next best score was turned in by P. F. Murphy of the Garden City Golf Club, who made an 84 net.
