KLIMPP IJEKEVTs, r.II.MOHK. Local Hoy Surprise Cou Follower by His Brilliant Plusinjt. Frank Klumpp of St Louis surprised the Broadway pool patrons by defeating Les ter Gllmore of Kansas City three games out of four In the French pool tournament at the Broadway last night. Before last night Klumpp was not looked upon as a possible winner In the amateur evenUgbut his defeat of Gllmore has given standing to him. and many of the local cue fraternity pick him to win the tourna ment. Klumpp plaved the best game he has shown for some months. His stroke was qood and he sent the Ivories Into the pock ets with accuracy. Gllmore plaed in good form, but he had several hard leaves, which cost him at least one of the three games. The Kansas City boy, until last night, was looked upon as a sure winner of the first prize, but his set-back at the hands of Klumpp practically puts him out cf the running. Klumpp plajed a great deal of safety throughout the match and this did much toward helping him to win. Gllmore usually went after the shots after a safety and generally fell down. Maurice Balzheiser and Frank Dumont are scheduled to play to-night, and the pair should put up an Interesting match. Balzheiser won a tournament at the Broadway and is playing as good now as he did when he carried off the honors. Pttlnee Tenpln Leagrne. TTe.

Meetinp Keeommends Series Be tween Winners of the Teiinaut iu the National and John son Aggregations. The American Baseball League mag nates at their annual meeting to-night de clared for a seaon of 110 games, a post season series of world's rhamp'onship games between the winners in the Amer ican and National I.asues and individual pu-t-season series for the other clubs of both leagues. This declaration, with the appointment of a Committie on Kules. represented the sum total of the first dav's meeting The baseball leaders v. ill meet agiln to-morrow morning to consider the case of the Washington club. Tho American I.iguer were unanimous in opposing the ' Garry Hermami Idea." which would limit the number of games to the neighborhood of llj and a circuit of post-season garner. The foul strike and the "spit ball" were discussed informallj, but the real work of the meeting came when the affairs of the Washington cmb wero taken up. Two hours were devoted to discussing the vari ous propositions, but at midnight there was no solution of the vexatious problem in sight, and the meeting adjourned. A number of communications were submit ted by pmles in Washington, who pro fessed desires to own the Hague's white elephant under certain conditions Neth inig was given out as to any proposition made to or received from A. C. Anaon. who Is in the flUd for the club. MOItE BATTING RECOMMENDED. Tho en of the leaguers was for more batting, and the Rules Committee, con sisting of Comi-skey, Mack and KitfovL was Instructed to report on th's feature. The question of raising the draft price was first vetoed, and affr considerable discussion, was passed tip to President Johnson for final decision. No trades, of plaers were announced to-da. This Is the way the different clubs were repre sented during the day: Chicago. Charles Comlskey; Cleveland, John F. Kilfojland Charles Somers: St. Lous-. R. L. Hedges; Bos'on. John I. Taj lor; Philadelphia. Ben F. Shlbe: New York. Frank J. Farrell; Detroit. W F. Tow key; Washington, Ben jamin S. Minor. In addition to those names on the reg ister of the hotel, there were a number of side cards that were Important factors In the small talk of the corridors. With the Boston delegation were Secretary Carl Green. Manager JImmv Collins and "Chick" Stahl. Connie Mack, the elongat ed manager, was. with Ben Shlbe in the Philadelphia party. Frank Farrell was alono as a representative of teh New York. Manager Clark Griffith being In the far West on a hunting expedition. Ben Minor, as the sole representative of the Wash ington Club, was a trifle lonely from all appearances, and did not appear on par ticularly warm friendly terms with many of the other magnates. Hl club too being In the nature of an outcast, carried little weight with the other delegates. Alone with Yowkcv of the Detroit Club came Frank J. N.ivin and Manager Wil liam Armour. They were much in evi dence before the meeting went into ex ecutive session. With the Cleveland bunch came the champion batter of them all, Larry I.ajo'e, and Secretary Barnard. With Helges of St. Louis was Manager Jimmy McAleer and Secretary J. Sidney Mercer. PLENTY OF BASEBALL TALK. There Was plenty of hot baseball talk w hlle the crowd w as waiting to hear from the star chamber session. Malachl Kltt redge, the Washington backstop, had plenty to say regarding the much-talked of "spit-ball" case. In this he was as sisted by the mighty Lajole. who also let out a few remarks regarding the thing. Klttredge said: "Townsend made good with the, spit ball last season. The thing Is apt to knock the shins oft a catcher. There Is no telling where It Is going at all. And when a catcher gets It and wants to send It to first or second base. It Is just as apt to go out to right field as anywhere else. There Is only one way out of the diffi culty: that Is to make the pitchers put up a high ball all the time. This spit ball Is essentially a low ball. It drops dead In front of the plate and if the pitchers are forced to deliver liigh, they will have to dispense with It." Lajole, champion batter ot the league, said: "I do not care much what they do to handicap the pitcher, for th reason that I think I can hit anything they can hand tip. I don't know much about this spit ball thing, but I know that the ball is mighty hard to get at. It floats up to the plate as If a man might knock it out of existence, but vou would break jour spine swinging at It. It's a wonder. I guess I can hit as well as am body, but I would rather have it out of the play, to teU vou the truth." GEL CLLS OV nOOSEVELT. Accompanied by Major Warner, He Sees the President. KKPUBLIC SPECIAL.
