JNTERE STING BOWLING GAMES Toot Ball Committees Beady to Be port?Booming the American Hen ley?New Orleans Baces. NBW YORK, January 23.?What threat ened to be a serious obstacle to the amica ble arranging of the National and Ameri can League schedules for the coming play ing season was yesterday brushed aside by Frank Farrell, owner of the New York Americans. According to agreement be tween the leagues, the Highlanders are en titled to the opeailng date In this city, the Giants having had the day last season. The National League fixed April 12 as Its open ing day. and President Ban Johnson de cided to have the American opening on April 14. Figuring on these days. Presidents John er>n and Pulllam drew drafts of their sched ules, and Pulllam scheduled the Giants to open the season In Brooklyn on April 12. The Highlanders will open April 14 with Boston at American League Park. About the same state of affairs came up two years ?igo, when the Giants opened in Brooklyn on the same day the Highlanders opened their season on Washington Heights. Johnson objected to Pulllam's schedule, but Farrell waived any rights he may have bad In the matter rather than have a repe tition of the unpleasant bickering of two years ago, and the Giants will open the season with Donovan's Doubtfuls at Wash ington Park on April 12. Presumably McGraw's men will be In Philadelphia when the Highlanders open at home on April 14. with Boston playing at Brooklyn. Johnson left for Chicago last night after iv four days' session with Pulllam. While neither schedule Is ready for adoption, lit tle work remains to be done on them. The two executives will try to eliminate some conflicting dates before the joint meet iriK of the two leagues on February 14. CHUBCH BASE BALL. Sunday School League Under Discus sion of Promoters. At tl ? banquet held last evening at the Y M <A. for the officers, moard of dl rc< tors-, pastors and superintendents of the Bund'ty sohools In the Sunday School Base Hull league, the principal subject un der discussion was whether the schools ha?d lwen benefited by being connected with the league. A general discussion on the subject was held and it was decided to appoint a committee to formulate rules based on the tain Last evening. This set of rules will be presented to the board of directors at its meeting to be held on next Monday e vening at the office of Mr. George A. Pre vost. the president. Mr. Prevost, Mr. James E. West and Mr. Edward F. Colla day were chosen as the members of the committee. Those In attendance last even ing were Rev. M. Ross Fishburn, Rev. John L. Allison, Rev. J. Russell Verbrycke. Rev. J. A. Dawson, Rev. D W. Skellenger, Rev. Weston Bruner, Mr. James E. West, Mr. George A. Prevost, Mr. Edward F. Colladay, Mr. F C. Croxton. Mr. T. W. Fowler, Mr. M. F Thompson, Mr. A. L. Dietrich. Mr. P. H. Britson, Mr. G. A. Clarke, Mr. C. R. Ball. Mr. S. A. Carr, Jr., Mr. C. I. Gess ford and Mr. W. J. Price. Base Ball Notes. The Athletics will probably open here with the Nationals on Saturday, April 14. This will be the last day of the Bennlng races and a conflict of dates can hardly be avoided, as the Boston Nationals are carded for Phila delphia. on that day. Charley Moran goes Into the Eastern League next season and: is pleased with the prospect of getting away from the west. A bad arm tied u>p Charley In the last weeks Of play at Indianapolis. Jack Carr, the Northeast boy. goes back to Indianapolis and Manager Watkins, who will have charge of the team this summer, insists that he will make one of the best third basemen In the country out of the lo cal lad. Unless there are a great many good play ers developed this summer, the Sunday School League will not be as fast as It was last season. The Virginia League and nearby professional cl'jbs are pulling a great many Washington players away, which should add to the Interest in the contest for the cnamplonshlp. "Ducky" Holmes says he prefers a medi um pitcher aand a first-cass catcher to a first-class pitcher and a poor catcher. President <X?mlskey says he is not worried over the assertion that Pitcher Frank Smith would not play with the White Sox next season Frank will have to buy a ticket to Chicago next spring or quit the game. The seating capacity of tbe grand stand in Cleveland has been increased. Several years ago It was believed that txise ball was a failure In the forest city. President Taylor of the Boston Ameri cans has sent new contracts to Pitchers Tannehill and Young, who were dissatisfied with the terms naimed In the first docu ments. Jesse wanted an advance and Cy ill ked at a cut. Both received what they wanted. If Bill Clarke can put through a deal to purchase his release from Manager McGraw Of the Gljjits, the big catcher will manage the Kansas. City American Association club next season. The club is now owned by George Tetieau. who Is also the owner of the Louisville team of the Kun? league. Te beau Is willing to step to the background If Clarke can be secured to manage the teinv 1'nder Arthur Irwin's management the Kansas City Blues finished in last place last season t'larko had a coirsultatlon with Ml-iraw last week and the deal Is almost certain to go through. The stand of the officials of the Greater New York club of the American League In the case of <>hn (lanstel. who voluntarily re tired from playing with the club to assume the management of the Grand Rapids club, of which he Is owner, appears to be well taken. Cuniel asks that the New York Americans release him so that he can play first 'base for his club, but for such a release he promises nothing In return. The Greater New York officials contend that as Ganxel is an asset of tbe chjfb they should not be naked to give away without compensation u player who has cost something to main tain. The (New Yorks undoubtedly do not need Ganzel, but to secure his release it will be necessary for him to reimburse the owners of the club. Joe Oorbett, ai one time a high-class pitciier In tbe National League, wilt never be able to play ball again. Inflammatory rheumatism ha? so crippled the young man that he Is In critical shape Just now. Cor bett Is living In California, where he went several year* ago after closing an engage ment with the Brooklyn club, which, by the way, has kept him on the reserve list ever since. He was probably one of the most sensitive players that ever put on a uni form. It was while he was a member of the Baltimore champions that he appeared In tbe box during a game at Bastern Park, Brooklyn, on* day and during a streak of bard luck was harshly called Sown by Capt. Jack Doyle of the same team. Corbett was ready to ory wben he heard Doyte's re Carks. and. throwing tbe ball to the sod. i walked to the bench, declining to yon tlnue with the Job Several teams have tried to secure Corbett since he left the Brook lyns. tout the officials of the latter club have always labored under the delusion that some day Corbett would come back.

J ' Kerr and Evans Before Vice President Crawford. Messrs. Kerr of the basket ball team of Carroll Institute and Evans of the Epiph any Chape! team had a hearing before Lieutenant Crawford, the vice president of the South Atlantic Division of the Amateur Athletic Union, at the Y. M. C. A. last evening. The men are under suspension upon the orders of Dr. William Grant, the chairman Of the registration committee, for engaging In a fight during the basket ball game between the teams of Carroll Institute and Epiphany Chapel on Ja&wiry #. Howell is confined to his room under going treatment for a fractured lav re ceived In the encounter, whUe JCerr aad Evans were present last evening to their versions of the affair. Prof Ma Joyce of Carroll Institute aad Mr. j man, physical director of Mahany Ct were also present and UHMld aftte 1 ing. Both Kan aad Kvana deei they acted la self-defense, and the gen eral opinion of many present was that the game had certainly deteriorated from the high standard that should be set for It, If such was the case. After the conclusion of the testimony the evidence, together with the opinion of Lieutenant Crawford, was forwarded to the headquarters of the Ama teur Athletic Union In Baltimore. FOOT BALI COMMITTEES BEADY WITH BEPOBTS The various subcommitte?s of the national Intercollegiate foot ball rules committee ha^ been holding meetings in Boston and Philadelphia, and are understood to have the recommendations on the subjects as signed to them sufficiently in hand to report them to the genera! committee at its meet- i lngs In New York city on Saturday. Principal interest centers in the work or ; the committee on open play, on which William T. Reid, jr.. of Harvard. E. K. Hall of Dartmouth and Walter Camp of Yale are serving. This will be the committee which recommends the real changes of Im portance. Definite information of the na ture of the changes that are to bo recom mended by this committee has not yet been announced, but it Is understood that two reports will be submitted, one representing the views of Reid and Hill and the other representing the views of Camp. As expected. Camp desires primarily noth- I ing but the ten-yard rule to open up the play, with such minor changes as restric tions in the matter of foul play will bring about. He is opposed to the forward pass and other proposals that find favor with the other members of the committee. Reid stands for weakening defense and strength ening offense by the introduction of the forward pass in addition to the ten-yard rule and such other changes as were em bodied in the revised Harvard code, as. for instance, the so-called neutral zone. Hall stands with Reid in support of all these proposals, and inclines to favor as well specific, weakening of the defense. It is expected by those familiar with the situation and In a position to know the probal<llities within the committee, as far as they can be foretold, that neither com mittee report will be adopted in toto. but that the Harvard propositions will likely rocelve general commendation and adop tion. The neutral zone is apparently re garded as a perhaps effective and a certain ly harmless change, and therefore experi mentally desirable. It is certain that the specific weakening of the defense by withdrawing men from the ends of the line will be recommended by both Annapolis and Pennsylvania, and that the support of Princeton. Cornell and Chi cago has been pledged for it, besides the tentative support of Harvard and Dart mouth, leaving but one vote to be secured among those five whose opinions are unex pressed to secure, its adoption. Camp stands alone in active opposition. The committee on brutality and rough play, consisting of John C. Bell of Pennsyl vania, Prof. Jamej A. Babbitt of Haverford and F. Homer Curtis of the University of Texas, has completed its work and framed a report on which the three members unanimously agreed. Keen interest is manifested in the work of the committee on a field laboratory con sisting of Ueut. Charles D. Daly of West Point, Prof. J. B. Fine of Princeton and Prof. C. W. Savage of Oberlin, to learn ex actlv what provisions they propose to carry out the plan for the testing in actual play of the changes tentatively adopted by the general committee. No information can be learned of the , progress made by the committee to propose a plan for the selection of officials by a central board. These men?Prof. L. M. Dennis of Cornell, Prof. James A. Babbitt of Haverford and William T. Reid, Jr., of Harvard?have not met. but have ex changed views by correspondence. VIRGINIA ATHLETE THREATENS SUIT FOR LIBEL , RICHMOND, Va., January 23.?Hunter Carpenter, the star half back of the Vir ginia Polytechnic Institute, was in Rich mond on Saturday considering legal pro ceedings against College Topics, a student paper published at the University of Vir ginia, for alleged libel, unless that paper makes satisfactory explanation of an article appearing therein, which article, it is al leged, called Carpenter some ugly names. . This article was not seen by Carpenter until several months after its appearance in the university sheet, owing to the fact that his friends at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute kept the paper from him. This was done to keep peace between the schools, as their foot ball teams were about to meet for their annual game at Charlottesville The university lost by 11 to 0. Carpenter, after reading the item, which, it is alleged, dubbed him "a paid athlete and a crook as well," communicated with President E. A. Alderman of the university and E. M. Daniel, president of the Univer sity Athletic Association. The writer, according to Carpenter's re port. of Daniel's letter was J. F. Boyd, it is claimed that no such person could be found at the university. Carpenter asserts that unless the men be hind College Topics make a satisfactory explanation he will enter suit and fiKht to a finish. GANS READY FOR BRITT OR NELSON SAN FRANCISCO, January 23.?A twen ty-round fight between Joe dans, the con queror of Mike Sullivan, and Jimmy Britt or Battling Nelson is likely to be the next really big fight held here. Gans, who has left this city for a short trip to Baltimore, issued a broad challenge to Britt before leaving, and has empowered Ben Selig, his new manager, to post a $2.5<X) forfeit and to sign articles for him. Gans wants to fight in February if possible. All Gans will insist on is that the fight be for twenty rounds or more and that the weight be made 133 pounds at 0 o'clock. The Baltimore negro has become the hero of the hour here through his wonderful battle with Sullivan. His next fight will draw a record house, and for that reason, if for no other, Britt may decide to take a chance with him. Here Is what Gans said about his chal lenge as he stepped aboard his train; "I have fought Jimmy Britt and defeated him, as Battling Nelson did. I won on a foul, but that doesn't matter?I won. As It seems an Impossibility for Britt to arrange a match with Nelson, I will give him a chance. I will box Britt at 133 pounds, weigh in at 6 o'clock, winner to take all or any part of the money, or any way Britt desires. If Britt refuses to accept th's challenge I will take Nelson on Just as soon as his theatrical engagements will permit and fight him under the same condit'ona. 'To show my good faith, my manager, Ben Sellg, is ready to place the sum ot $2,500 in the hands of Harry Corbett, Eddie Graney or any other reliable person, to bind the match and to carry out this agreement "It is my desire to fight In February, and I have already been promised a date by the local boxing managers; but If that doesn't fit in with Brltt's or Nelson's plans I will postpone it to suit either." To Investigate Wrestlers. Dr. Grant stated that at the nex meeting of the registration committee the cases of WlIHam Turner and Howard Foley, the two local wrestlers who were recently suspended *>."rith.e ?harge of having engaged in profes sional contests, would come before the com mittee for consideration. AMERICAN HENLEY. Georgetown, Syracuse and Columbia May Bow at Philadelphia. Efforts are being made to obtain repre sentation from Georgetown University in the American Henley, at Philadelphia, next May. According to pians now being made by the stswards of the American Rowing As sociation, ha fourth annual regatta, better kaciwn as the American Henley, promises to *cllj?e of its predeoeesore. The ?towards bald their iTiimel meeting ttma ago and caade all Uveprelto dboeen In order that It might not conflict with (be regattas to be held on Memorial dtjr by Cornell and the Harlem Blw Row-in* Association dt New York. This year a supreme effort Is to be made to obtain the competition of every college In the east that supports a crew. L*st year Harvard and Yale sent second crews, while Pennsylvania and Cornell were sim ilarly represented. At the meeting of the stewards these four Institutions virtually promised to be repre sented again, and If possible will have more than one crew In competition. With these valuable entries assured, tne stewards are preparing to make an effort to secure t+ie competition of Georgetown, Syracuse and Columbia. It la said that all are anxious to send crews, and will do so If such a thing is possible. If all of these colleges and universities respond with their crews, this regatta will become one of the great intercollegiate meetings of the year. In point of numbers. It will outrank all others, even the Pough keepsle meeting. So far as possible, the various colleges whose entries are desired have been representation by the board of stewards. As a result, there are no factions, and the representatives of the Poughkeopsie and New London meetings are on more friend VT^by 'the promotion of this spirit that the stewards hope to merge the: two^ re gattas ->f the vast. As soon as 1 he second S-ews of the two factions are meeting an nually, the stewards think it wlU ,^. ^aSJj_ to brine the first, or varsity, eights to gether The stewards are not in any ?rea* hurry to achieve this end. for they think it will all work out In good time. NEW ORLEANS B.ACES. Favorites Go Well at One Track and Badly at the Other. Miss Leeds. Mimic's Daughter. Third Alarm and De Reszke were the winning favorites at the Fair Grounds. New Or leans, yesterday. Miss Leeds was hard pushed to win. and after the race was run up to $000 and sold to C. T. Gardner. The other favorites were the best of their respective fields, and all won easily. Major Daingerfleld sulked in the fourth race and was never a contender. Brilliant, favorite in the last race, quit at the end. The steeplechase at City Park was Utile better than a farce. Of the six starters only three finished. Pick Time fell and both Sherod and H. M. P., the favorite, un seated their riders. , , Brush Up and Gauze were the only win ning favorites. Jack Dolan. the choice in the last race, needed a stronger boy than Hennessy.

The big Philadelphia barge Confidence, laden with hollow brick, was brought into port Sunday night by the tug William H. Terkea, jr., and was berthed at the wharf foot of 13% street to unload her cargo. The bricks are to be used In the construction of the new public buildings now In process of erection in the city, and come from a plant located on the Rappahannock river a few miles below Fredericksburg. This Is the second trip the Confidence has made to this city with hollow brick aboard, in "the past month, and it is stated other barges will load the brick for this city this winter. Arrived: Schooner C. C. Wheeler. Ium? ber, from the Rappahannock river; schoon ers Uriah Horner, Belmont and C. H. Daiger, cord wood, from points on the lower Potomac; Walter P. Snow, pine lum ber, from a Virginia lumber port; schoon ers Helen Laird, Shining Light, Blanch Haywird and John Branford, oysters, from Potomac beds; bugeye Kathleen, lumber, from the lower river. Sailed: Schooner Clara Leonard, for Nomini creek, to load a cargo of cord wood for this city; schooners Sterling Sis ters and Ella Covington, for Potomac oys ter beds to load for this city; sloop Dread naught, for Alexandria, to discharge cargo of oysters in the shell. Memoranda: Schooner Alethea, laden with lumber, has sailed from the Rappa hannock river for this port; steam barge E. James Tull Is loading a cargo of ldmber In Aqula creek for the dealers here. The owners of the numerous power launches and other pleasure craft which were laid up when the first cold weather came last fall, and It looked as If the river might freeze, have been regretting the hard luck that their boats are out of service the beautiful days of the past several^ weeks.

Socialists Express Sympathy With Russian Uprising. CALL IT A REVOLUTION Mass Meeting at Pythian Temple Pre ceded by a Parade. RED FLAG MADE PROMINENT Temperate Addre-wes by Prominent Leaders in Movement?'/.mmem oration of Bloody Sunday. The singing- of the "Marseillaise" opened the mass meeting that was held Vast night In Pythian Temple under the auspices of the socialists and several labor organisations. At the close of the meeting three cheers were given for the Russian rebellion, and the socialist rebellion, as it was termed, in the United States was similarly applauded. The meeting was held, it was stated. In order that Russian sympathizers might have an opportunity to commemorate "Bloody Sunday"-?the day when so many Russians were slaughtered in the streets of St. Petersburg while under the leadership of Father Gaipon. The effort of the march ers was to get an audience with the czar. The 200 men who formed the parade en tered the hall following the band and two flags. One was the banner of the United States and the other was a red Hag?that of the socialist organization. The latter flag was waived by the chairman of the meeting. W. J. Lightboun, and was loudly cheered. In the audience were many women and children, who were there to hear something of the conditions In Russia, and who wanted to know what is being done to assist 'them. After the singing of the "Marseillaise" the audience listened attentively to Dr. MorrLs Korshet, who had addressed a similar meeting in Baltimore last night. The Principal Address. Dr. Morris Ivorshet made t'he principal a<Sdress of the evening. The speaker re ferred 'briefly to the frightful examples which ancient history reveals of the slaugh ter of innocent people, and declared that It remained for the Russian government to toe pointed out in these modern times as the instigator of crimes unmentionable. "The most lamentable curse to visit a people," he declared with much emphasis, "was the massacre of thousands of women : and children in the streets of St. Peters burg Sunday. January 22, 1SKK5." He said it was not a massacre of people .because of their religious tendencies, tout the toutchery of a peaceful deputation of -worklngmen seeRIng better conditions and more reward for their toll. "Bloody 'Sunday," he continued, "was the spark which exploded the magazine of rev olution throughout the entire world. The shots that carried death to those people were heard by the -whole world. We do not shed tears of sorrow for our siaugh tered brethren in Russia, but tears of joy that they were the first to die for the cause of universal brotherhood." The speaker declared that the struggle now toeing carried on is a struggle against barbaric oppression and eternal slavery for civilization and for peace. This 'blessing will Inevitably be the workingman's re ward. "By endeavoring to check the Rus sian revolution, the bureaucracy," lie said, "Is o-nly sitting on the crater of a seething volcano, and when It bursts it -will mean destruction for the oppressors." He bade his hearers not to lose hope because there is now and then a lull in the struggle. "The great giant of the revolution is only girding up his loins. We must not become Impa tient because things do not move fast enough in Russia. There is at present one great world struggle?that is the struggle of the working people of the world." Plea for Money. At the conclusion of his remarks Dr. Kor shet asked the audience to make up a purse to be used In assisting their friends In Rus sia. The contributions amounted to about $70. Mr. Harry Nlematz, writer for a Jew ish paper, assisted Dr. Korshet in making a plea for funds. Mr. B. Rassas of the Workingmen's Circle followed with a short address in the Jewish language. Then^I. H. Hourwich, the writer and speaker on the Russian revolution, was In troduced. -He was sorry, he said, that he did not have the enthusiasm of youth, such as was possessed by some of the other speakers, saying he had been laboring In the Russian cause for more than thirty years, and that perhaps some of hds enthus iasm had cooled oflf. He scored the press associations for some of the reports that had been sent out from Russia, and said that the people h%d been but poorly in formed of the real conditions there. The speaker said that what is going on in Russia at this time Is a revolution, and not merely a succession of riots. The Rus sian revolution, he said, was started over eighty years ago, when the grandfather of the present Russian ambassador was one of the participants, and he was sent oft to Siberia. More than forty years ago, said the speaker, a partial reform was granted because it was thought that freedom grant ?a from above would be better than If ob talaed by other mean* from below.

The socialist ideas did not fall to spread across the borders Into Russia, and thou sands of Russians embraced them. They did not have the example of America, where socialism may be talked from morning un til night and nobody wants to listen. Only a small number of the Russians were will ing to give up their lives for the caus" of their people twenty-live years ago. but that ? has multiplied so many times since r now nu,T>bt-rs countless thou that th<" government .r*th,f rebellion several times and ex f lt? leaders.

The parade started at the Temple and marched down New York avenue to 14th street, thence to Pennsylva nia avenue and up to ?th street, again re turning to the hall about 8:80 o'clock. Pinned on the coat lapels of the paraders were large socialist buttons and badges emblematlo of the various organizations. Several drummers and buglers accom panied the parade and added largely to the enthusiasm of the event. Heavy Fog on River. The steamer masters who were on their regular trips on the river yesterday report the fog. which began Sunday night and lasted until a/bout noon yesterday, as hav ing been very heavy almost the entire length of the river. Some little delay was caused the moving craft, but after the fog lifted they were able to ma'?e good time, and came into port only a little late. On the river about this city the fog vas par ticularly heavy, and at times It completely hid the trees on the Potomao Park from the view of those employed about the wharves. It lifted for a time, but blown by the south erly* winds came back up the harbor, fol lowing the water and extending but a short distance In shore. The fog cloud lay iow on the water, and while the masts of a vessel or the smokestack of a passing tug could be seen ajx>ve It, the hulls and decks of the vessels could not be made out fcy those who were on shore. Tidal Basin Bridge. The Baltimore tug Edith came into port Sunday evening towing two scows laden with several boilers, hammers and hoisting apparatus, which is to be used. It is stated, In the equipment of the pile-driving ma chines which will be used by the Penn Bridge Company In the construction of the new concrete bridge across the tidal basin outlet at the foot of 14th street southwest. The heavy timber guides in which the driv ing hammers of the new pile drivers will work, have been constructed some time and have been lying at the foot of 14th street waiting the coming of the machinery which will complete the drivers. This new brtdge is to be a portion of the new Highway bridge improvement, but It is stated that it will be about a year before the work is completed and the new structure made ready for service.
