Low of Dartmouth i
Reported Signed To
Cincinnati Contract
Hanover, .Feb. ,18. Fletcher Low;
crack' Dartmou th . sh ortstop, and who
was recently declared ' ineligible, is
said to 'have accepted terms from the
Cincinnati .club of the , National league.
Since the athletic council made the
ruling - against him a .few - weeks ago.
Low has been besieged '.with offers'
from professional clubs. ' "
At first minor league clubs endeav
ored to secure his signature to a con
tract and then the major league scouts
were put on his .trail.' ; Low received
flattering: inducements from both the'
Boston ' Braves and Red Sox. but
turned down both offers, stating that
he was hopeful of- being reinstated by
the Dartmouth- 'athletic council.
The . report that he has signed, with
the Reds is a decided surprise to his
friends, due to his attitude when ap-
proacnea Dy representatives of the
Boston clubs, both picked by many
critics as the probable pennant win
ners In the American and National
leagues during the coming campaign.
, However, Low's chances of earning
a berth with either Boston team would
be slight, with Maranville looking af
ter the shortstop berth for the Braves
and the sensational youngster Everett
Scott on the Job. for the. Red Sox.
Knowing this, .undoubtedly influenced
Low, if he decided to sign a Cincin

would play again for the Athletics if
ho changed his mind, and he said:
"If the big league fever ever be

first ask Connie if he wants me, and if
so I will gladly join the Athletics

that I have to quit while I think I "am

game. Princeton's splendid defensive
play constantly balked Yale's attack,
holding the home septet tied till the
first of the two five-minute overtime
periods, when' a long drive from the

clearly lacked ice practice, but who
easily made good their deficiency by
the defensive game.
During the overtime periods not a
stop was registered by York, the Yale

New York, "Feb. 18 Tfc.a latest re
ports from : the seat of b,sebaU war
seem to indicate tho.t Rube Marquard
yesterday - had taken on a sudden
change of, .mind and that lie would
probably repudiate . his agreement
with the Federal league and go with
the C.lants to Me.rlin. The basis
for this supposition is that Marquard
had a long conference at the office
of the Giants'- with'- President Hemp'
stead, and Secretary John B. Foster
yesterday and was shown the error
of his ways. After the conference
was over the ' olticials of the New
York club were Smiling, but would
say nothing. -'
It is known, however, that Rube
took the most comfortable chair in
the office and smoked & couple of Mr.
Hempstead's best-cigars. They talk
ed and talked and talked for hours.
Marquard-, retired by the rear eleva
tor and would say nothing. X Like
wise the officials of the club.
Lee Magee, manager of the Brook
lyn Feds, in the meantime," was wait
ing for a conference with Marquard,
but he did not appear ' in Brooklyn
yesterday. -
" As to the question, "will Marquard
play with the Brooklyn 'Feds' or the
New York Giants, the pdds seem to
favor the Giants. . ' Take your

the granting of the petition of the In

very probable result of present nego

fer to that district of the Kansas City

tional league action, was the asser
tion made yesterday - by , President
John K. Tener of the National league.
who was here on a' private business
trip.
"I do not know how true,, the re
port is regaraing the location of a
Federal league club - in the ; Bronx,
said president. Tener, "cut I am cer
tain it will not affect in. the slightest
the action of the National league re
garding the International league's pe
tition. Just what will .be- done re
garding the International league's re
quest to obtain a Bronx franchise will
be decided later regardless of Fed-

that President Barrow's efforts will

The National league president , be

that most of the National clubs would

GUNBOAT SMITH

Hartford, Springfield and New Haven
Must Start Season or Lose
Franchises
.By Wagner.) '
The promoters of the Jack Johnson-Jess
Willard bout appear to be
really alarmed over . the possibility
that Johnson may, not be able to
reach Juarez, Mex., in time for the
fight on March 6. Jack Curley, who
has charge of arrangements for the
bout, has wired Gunboat Smith's man
ager to have Smith on hand so that if
anything happens to Johnson, the
Gunner will be there to fight "Willard.
Meanwhile a report from Galveston,
Tex., says a yacht has been chartered
to intercept the boat on which John
son is nearing Mexico and smuggle
the negro boxer into the country.
; The latest bluff of the Springfield
and Hartford owners is that they
have prevailed Upon New Haven to
act with "them and the three clubs
by refusing to start the season can
break up the Eastern' association.
They point out that it is necessary
for the league to have four clubs in
order to retain its standing in or
ganized ball. 4
"1 don't believe New Haven ha
anything - to do with this scheme,"
declared' President O'Rourke of the
Eastern association today. . "The
league will be in operation if we only
have four clubs. , But I don't take any
stock: in the, threats by the Hartford,
and Springfield owners. 'They would
lose their franchises if they didn't
start and they have too much invest
ed to do that. They can't wait' until
the last minute to state "their inten
tions, either. If they don't flle their
$2,000 bonds by March 15 x they will
forfeit their franchises.. That will
give us plenty of time to get others
to put clubs inthose cities."

'and the result of the meeting will

to tell the truth of the matter, the old
ship is floundering for the simple rea
son that a few magnates, who have
done practically nothing for the good
of the league ever since it started, are
now trying to run things In a high
handed way. It will be worth, while
for those who can to attend the meet
ing tonight. The by-laws call for five
directors from each society and the
St. Charles team have been represent
ed by their five at every meeting. The
Hearts have had but two at the meet
ings while -the St. Mary's have been
represented by,but one. Tonight will
see five from each society, making a
total of 2 0 directors present at the
gathering. -
The main question involved will be
the protested game, which was pfciyed
between the St. Charles and St. Mary's
on Friday last in St. John's hall. The
players had another full minute' to

wueu Kii3 ui tne time-Keepers, a
St. Alary man, called "time up." Lip
tak, a St. John's man, and a disinter
ested time-keeper insisted that there
was yet a minute to play. St. Charles
again donned their togs and rushed
onto the floor, demanding that the
game be played to a f nish. The St.
Mary's, however, refused to take the
floor and. the game was immediately
protestea. some rans say that the
score would not have changed had
the minute been played out. How
ever, it is a simple matter to toss in
two baskets in' a full minute provided
tne players are active and on the 1ob
The St. Charles rightfully claim that
they had a fine chance of tieing the
score had the game been finished. The
matter will be settled tonight.
The next important transaction will
be the question of deciding on the
number -of games to be played ' each
week. Sacred Heart and St. Marv'
only want, one game a week, while the
MAY REPLACE

Shafer denied this. He said lie had
retired from baseball and was simply
in New York to see the metropolis 4n
winter. "If he should change his mind
he would not go to the Federals but
would Joint the Giants, he declared. '
Pitcher King Cole , has joined the
New York American squad at Hot
Springs, Ark. He took the trip to
Honolulu with the All-American
leaguers and since then has been rest
ing in Brawley, Cal.
It is said that John Ganzel the Ro

It is almost certain that Ganzel will
be released as manager at Rochester.

ASKETBALL
John's and the Charles insist on play
ing two. 'The; by-laws call for two
games a week and ' the " Charles and
John's threaten to play independent
ball if they are not lived up to.
After the number of games have
been decided upon the next important
move will be the changing of the
halls. ,' Games will hereafter be play
ed in St. Charles' hall - on Fridays in
stead of Mondays,. Games will be
played Mondays instead of Fridays in
St. John's hall. The first game . will
be started promptly at 8:30 and the
second one will conclude no later than
10:30. ' '
Another important occurrence at
the meeting will be when the manager
of the Hearts is reminded of the by
law regarding . regulation uniforms.
The Charles, Mary's, and the John's
have different colore'd uniforms from
each other. The St. Mary's have blue
jerseys, St. Charles, green,, ana St.
Johns, red. The Hearts are compell
ed under the by-laws to wear white
jerseys. One player lives up to the
rule and that Is all. Players on the
opposing teams are often confused
when playing against the Hearts.
1 It is understood that a resolution
will be presented , this evening which
will amend this by-law, by imposing
a fine on the manager of the, dilatory
team. The league has been going al
most seven weeks and no team as yet
has a regulation uniform ? I say the
manager should be called upon the
carpet or his team be made to forfeit
all future games.
HEARTS VS. ST. CHARL5S.
: The game tomorrow night between
the Hearts and the Charles will cer
tainly be a hummer. The Charles
have won their last five games and
hold the series on the Hearts, taking
two out of three from the South End
boys. Lannon will be on deck tonight
in all his glory and so will Hanbury.
Christy, .the speed boy, and Hork-
heimer will be on deck battling for
the Charles. ' Dunigan, the star long
distance shooter of the league, will
also be in his war togs. Gartland
and Rainville, the two gladiators of
the Hearts, will take care of the
breastworks of their teammates, while
Russel, the tricky forward of the same
team, will bear watching.
The battle will start at 8:30. Joe
Waters will referee and "Pop"? Moran
will be the official score-keeper. The
winner of this game will hold undis
puted possession of first place in the
league standing.

ANNIVERSARIES
OF RING BATTLES
1912 Johnny Coulon defeated
FVankie Burns in 20 Tonndr at New
Orleans. In the opinion of many
of the fans ,who witnessed this bat
tle, the Jersey City boxer had tha
best of it in. fifteen of the rounds, and
should have been awarded the decis
ion and the bantamweight champion
ship of the world. The ! referee,
Harry Stout, came in for much criti
cism, from the Burns, backers, and
the crowd at the ringside was not at
all pleased -when Stout .raised , Cou
lon's hand as the victor. Burns was
apparently a bit fearsome of the
champion, and, .with a little more
"pep"- and aggressiveness he inisht
have scored a' clean-cut 'victory.
When , Kid ' Williams wc-ht after the
title -be didn't hesitate to' mix -things
and as a result he won by e.' knock
out in short order. Burns had a lot
