Chicaso, III. Dec . The Board of
Stewards of the Western Jockcj- Club will
have several diBlcult turf problems to
solve Monday, in dowsing of the St.
lrfjuK Hot Springs and Worth applica
tions for racins dates. Usually these at
tain, are cut and dried, but now there are
obstacles to a pcrfunctorj- proceeding;
Six directors of the Union Jo'kej Club
of St. Louis, President Joseph A. Duffy,
Captain r. J. Carmody, General Manager
M. li. Itoundtree, M. Hanneck, John
Moonev- and John P. Collin, State Sena
tor of lisEourl, are here to look after the
Interests of the new St. Louis track.
Asked if any division of dates has been
atranged lietween the Union Jockey Club
and the Cella-Adlcr-Tilles comb'ne, that
has for three j ears enjoj ed a monopoly of
St. Louis racing. CJptUIti Carmody replied:
"S6; vva have had no cdnfercnce'wlth
tlunc We would liavc been pleased to
have, arrived at Jin amicable undcrsfanll
ing beforf appearing b'efore the Western
Joekej- Club stewards, but the talk and
actions tif the St. Louis sjndicatc have
been .such that no self-respecting body of
men could t-eek a meeting with them.
Arront; other things, thej- have been tcll-
Ins people in M. Lou's that they own
and control four of the stewards of the
Western Joekej- Club and have been offer
ing to make nil kinds of octravagant bets
that we will not get anj- dates."
"We are not worrjlng." said Prtsldent
Dufij. ' We feel conlldent the Western
Jockey Club will treat tis faiilj., and that
Is all we ask. On what Just grounds could
the stewards refuse us dates? We have
already epended the best pait or J1CMCKW
on our new pirk, and, when It is Mulshed,
which will take at least SIOO.OM more, we
will have the finest raee track In St.
Louis Our club is eompus0d of St. Louis
busire-s men. and It proposes to give St.
Louis the same kind of high-class racirg
Chicagnans enjov at Harlem and Wash
ington Park Besides, our request will be
quite modest. We shall not ask for more
than sixty davs, which leave's 1M davs for
the other penjJe. I don't suppose Kinloth
will be operated net vear. It Is a
wretched place."
In response to an niqulrj as to what
thej- would do in the event of not icur
ing justice from the Western Jockcv Club,
the deb sates replied un.inlmouslj in that
event thej- would be compelled to operate
their raco course as an iniepeudent track.
In whieh ease thej' v.ould piek out the
best ninctv davs of tin' season at St.

be in a toHion to gnaiantee "owners,

Ihe Kerns maintained tlie.li lead in the
Association League us the lesiilt of j Ci
te! dav's games. In the first contest the
Kerns defeated the Sraldings by the score
of 3 to !. In the last sockcr game the
Kan lines wcie it turned the victors over
rinucgin's Sporlsmans bj- the score of
to go lis to nothing.

diffuent teams and in diffcient positions,
the sanies were well plajed and exciting

of practice, the plaveis woikcd well to-

In the opening game the Tiibe of Iv.iv
anaugli had succeedeil in slamming two
soils befoie the Spaldlngs had a chanie
to get tlulr share of kicks at the ball.
The first of these was shot on a right
hand pass by Itichard Jatrett. Dick did
not displaj his usual gameness and
seemed a bit sh-. He was knocked down
several times in the early part of the
game bv some of the joungsleis and did
not plunge into the fraj as of joie.
After lift i rn minute's of plajing, FIcel
mule a brilliant rim with the ball, car
rjiug it from left center to the ten-jnrd
line, where he slammed against Glcason.
He batted tl e h ill out, but it was caught
bv Uddie Rjan, who tried for goal, but
failed, l'icel again secure-d the ball ami
shot between the bars from the ten-jnrd
line, seormg.
Doctoi Ullion, who has mule a favor
able impression with the s0tKer fans, shot
the first goal for the Spaldings a few min
utes before the call cf the first half. By
diiliblmg he managed to get the ball
about live jaids from the posts, when
Ilruska tan out lo meet It." The latter
missed and Dillon kicked the pighldc
The third and last goal for the Kerns
was accidentally shot bv JIcManus of the
Spaldlngs. The ball was rolling a few- feet
from the posts, and Mac aimed a terrific
boot at the hide, but caught it with the
backward movementof his foot and the
spheie went through.
"Butch" Amnions, as usual, plajed a
f.-st game and passed the se(ond goal for
CabiU's aggregation. The ball was kicked
towards Robinson, but struck the north
post and stoprcd short.
About four or five plajers on each team
ran to the ball, anl it looked as though
It were a Ittigbv game and the plajers
were trjing Tor u touchdown. Burch man
aged to get the ball awav from the crowd,
and after this It required little vim or
v gor to pass It through, as most of the
plavers were either picking themselves up
orbrushing the dirt off their uniforms.
The Kerns appear as though thej- got
the better of the deal as a result of
changing plajers. Kavanaugh has
"canned ' tho Mlddleton brothers and in
their places has put Walsh. Kicel and Ry

Gus Iiezeiiuh and Coone.v Kelle fought
tell fast and rough-and-tumble 1 omuls to
a draw at the Columbian Athletic Club
vesteiday afternoon, before a ctovvd which
taxed the capacltv of the hall.
The liqht wa of the hurricane order ev
ery minute, with Bezenah forcing Kclley
around the tin? throughout.
The Streator ilghtci came back hi good
shape, and occaslonallv showed to ad
vantage, but Bezenah was too strong for
him. and doubtless would have received
the verdict, but for an agreement be
tween the lighters that the veidict should
be a draw if both were on their feet at the
call of time.
Tho men were to fight at 113 pounds, but
the announcer declared that 0110 of the
fighters was Reven pounds overweight.
and for that rea&on they had agreed on
a draw If both were able to light at the
end of the tenth round. He failed to an
nounce which man had the better of the
weight question, hut the advantage ap
peared to be with Bezenah.
Bezennh started out In the. first round to
put Kellcy nwav In a hurry, but Cooney
cut looe and soon had hla husky oppo
nent backing up. Bezenah kept on
trying, however, and fought a vicious
fight. Kelley did great work In blocking
and ducking, but Bezenah was too powcr
erful for him.
ThcNe men would put up a great battle
for fifteen rounds, with the weight even,

would have a chance for a verdict. Joe,
Yanger, the human punching bag, chal
lenged the winner at the ringside. Both
Kelley and Bezenah have defeated Tanger
and the Italian wn told to get a reputa
tion before again aspiring to such heights.
The preliminary, between Cornwall and
Peter O'Burn of New York City was in
teresting chiefly because of O'Burn's abil
ity to stand punishment. He is a. willing
fighter, with a tremendous right wallop,
but his knowledge of fighting Is represent
ed by X. Cornwall punched him around the
ring for six rounds and was .iwardcd the
v crdlct. '
One thing may be credited to Bezenah
that though apparently no' in the nest
of condition, he held his speed throughout
and was clearly the better boxer of the
Kelley may have a chance for tho ver
dict If the' men go fifteen rounds but this
chance will be based on the possibility of

match and he was In no trim for the hur

As an example of putting up a defensive
battle, Kelley clioned good form; as an
Illustration of how to light when not in
the best of trim, Bezenah filled the card
nicely; so there the matter stands. It
was a good.llttle scrap while it lasted and
afforded an interesting spectacle.
J P. Victor served as referee. Match
maker Zimmerman states he may put
on Andy Walsh and George Block as the
next attraction, and that, failing to get
them together on an equitable weight
basis, he will try for heavy men.

The men are to welsh in at 15S Bounds,

gaged to bov Sracue Tommy Kvan. and
has decided to try -his luck in the West.
His appe ir.inec before the Chicago Ath
letic Club should be of interest.
Jim Scanlan. once ,t fighter of some
ability in the heavj-welght division, has
blossomed out again and announced his
intention of trying lo set on a fight witli
Bob ntzsimmons. Possible Scanlan has
been stimulated to the belief that he is
still a live factor In the ring, because
some horsemen named a gray gelding
after him a jear or so ago. and raced
the ounj,ster unsuccessful! over the
local tracks.
Kither tint. 01 he has become encour
aged by the fact that no new heavv
vvelght material is In evidence and believes
that he mav do something to nt7. The
aveiago follower of the ring Is apt 'o
anlln at the thought of Sc.tnlan facing the
Australian, when his tseanldn's showings
in the ring of this city are considered.
Scanlan was a li.ingei-on at the old
West i:nd Club when tint Institution
flourished at the former I'.LStlnie club
hoaoquarters on vandeventer nvenue and
was a protege of Padd Tonillnson, now
the well-known racing man. Jim never
showed such tianscetident merit that his
best friend would pick him lo win from
Boh. but he evidently has the utmost con
fidence In himself.
Charley Hatighton departed for Chicago
last ev enlng on a tour of inspection. That
Is. he Intends to make the rounds of the
boxing resoi Is in the city by the lake and
see Just what nin.tc.tlal is available for
prize fighting heie.
What he would like to discovei in partic
ular is just what keeps Bennj Yanger
from fighting Hugh JlcPadden. The lat
ter Is willing to fight Yanger. and Is even
willing to concede an unequal distribution
of the purse, win or lose, with Yanger
taking the long end.
The fact that Yanger was luckv not to
have a verdict handed down against him
In his light with JlcPadden at Detioit is
probablv what is keeping the Italian boxer
out of the ring with JlcPadden as an op
ponent. Yanger was declared the winner
in that battle, but most of those present
stated that the fight was .1 "Chicago"
affair, with JlcPadden clearly the man
who was entitled to the decision.

Who has resigned as manager ot the
ager of the Cardinals and the chances arc
it will be atccpted this time.
Donovan stated that his resignation was
final, and he could not be Induced to play
with the Cardinals again.
Donovan's successor has not jet been
named. '
Charlev XlchoK Bobbie Lowe and Mc
Closkey have each been mentioned for the
post, but no selection has as jet been
m ide. '
The Messrs. Robison probably will an
nounce Donovan's successor this week.
According to Donovan, his resignation
has been In the hands of Frank Do Haas
Robi'on. president of the St. Louis Na
tional League Baseball Club, for two
weeks. .
Donovan states that hi resignation was
the tesult of his own personal wish to
sever his connections with the local Na
tional League team.
Drawing one of the largest salaries ever
paid to a baseball plajer or manager,
Donovan began tho 1903 season with glow
ing prospects.
He gathered around him a collection of
hustling joung plavers, who critics of
the game said would finish well up in the
On their early showing the Cardinals
appeared to bear out the predictions of
the critics and did verj- well.
Early In the season Donovan showed an
Incapacitj' for managerial duties hj- re
leasing "Bob" Wicker.
Selee, a shrewd Judge of ball plajers, at
once signed Wicker and ho finished the
reason as the leading pitcher of the Chi
cago National League team.
Before the season opened Donovan had
trouble with the plaj-ers under him.
Burke, who was secured from Pittsburg,
refused to report at the Cardinals' train
ing grounds at Dallas, claiming that Don
ovan did not Intend to give him a square
When the Cardinals began the season
Brain was plajed at third and Williams
was tried at short. Friends of Burke
made Mich a demand for "Jimmy's" ap
pearance in the game that Donovan final
ly consented to allow the "Pride of Goose
Hollow" to play with the Cardinals. Burko
made pood from the Jump. Ho finished
the teason In startling fashion.
Donovan, however, never forgave Burke
for the stand the plajer had taken in the
spring, itnd when Frank De Haas Robi
son came to St. Louis Donovan stated to
the owner of the Cardinals and several
friends that he would not pity In St.
Louis In 1904 If Burke plajed here.
Burke resented Donovan's statement,
and after the close of a post-season game
called Donovan in the clubhouse.
Burke was not the onlj- plaj er w ho had
trouble with Donovan. F.trrell. Brain,
Barclaj- and Smoot all stated before de
parting for their homes that they were
very much dissatisfied with Donovan's
handling of the team.
According to the regul.ns on the Car
dinal bam Donovan's failure as a man
ager was due to his incess mt gossiping.
Burke stated that Donovan "knocked"
Brain to him before the season was two
weeks old. Brain also claimed that Don
ovan "hammered" Burke to him. In the
clubhouse one daj the plajers held a con
ference and compared nctcs.
To their surprise Donovan had abused
nearly every member of the Cardinal team
to some fellow pl.ier.
That night three plajers. Brain, Iiarel.ij
and Burke, opcnlj accused their man iger
of "knocking," and "called" Donovan In
the clubhouse.
Donovan made no replies to their
charges, but stated that If Burke remained
here he would depart.
At first Frank deHass Robison sided
with Donovan, but ho had not been In
St. Louis more than three days when he
changed his mind about the manager.
Donovan not only charged certain plaj
ers with "laying down" on him, but he ac
cused the Robisons of Interfering.
This probably caused Pat's resignation.
Donovan stated time and again that he
did not have the power to release a pi iJ
er. He also said that the Robisons would
not accord to him financial support. Ac
cording to 'Donovan, the Roblsops would
not advance him monej' with which to1 se
cure talent.
The Robisons had never suspected Dono-
jVan's loyaltj'. They believed Donovan to
be a paragon or integrilj-. in a lime iau
nlng bee, it Is said, Frank deHass Rob
ison learned that Donovan had made de
rogatory statements about the St. Louis
club owners. That night, according to a
fan, Robison "called" Donovan and later
on practically asked for Donovan's resig
When the American League decided to
place a team in St. Louis their agents
made a raid on Roblson's plajers. and all
"Jumped," with the exception of Dono
van. Pat told several friends thnt he was
asked to Join his former teammates and
go with the Browns. When McAleer
heard this he told the writer that Dono
van was never asked to sign an American
League contract with the St. Louis team.
Speaking of the matter. McAleer said:
"Donovan was not asked to Join tho
Browns. He is the only plajer that I did
not want. He was unpopular with his fel-low-plajers.
We did not want 'knockers'
In our camp."
Burkett. who plajed with Donovan, also
said of Pat, In an interview with the
writer, that Donovan has alwajs been un
popular with players.
"While I was playing in the outfield
with Donovan he did many things for
which I 'called him," said Burkett. "One
da j' we were plajing the Brookljn team.
With the scoie a tie and on our home
grounds. Donovan wanted to quit at the
end of the ninth inning. I called Donovan,
and, together with the rest of the Car
dinal team, forced him to finish out the
game. We won, and from that time until
tho present daj- Donovan has been un
popular with ball plajers.
Pat has not announced his plans for
the future, "but his friends say he is
through with baseball.
He is said to be well oft in worldly goods
and Interested in a drug business.
Donovan has been plajing major league
baseball for a decade. Before coming to
St Louis he was with the Pittsburg team
When the Pittsburg and Louisv Hie teams
consolidated Donovan was released to St.
Louis. Fred Clarke secured his place as
manager of the Pirates.
While they were members of the Cardi
nals, McGraw and Donovan had several
disputes. Since leaving St. Louis, McGraw
hos said that Donovan would have been
released had he not interceded in his bey
half. After McGraw 's departure Donovan was
appointed manager of the Cardinals and
has led the St. Louis National League club
since that time.
