Cp^^^larshall, president of the Su-» peribr Baseball Club, has the ^follow-] I lie Superior. Telegram: A meeting of all citizens interested i'n'ttfe Northern Baseball League the" cojnipg year is called for the Hotel Su-% peridr next Saturday night, Dec. 12, at 81 o'clock, and everyone who feels tha tit is a good thing for this city to have league ball should be present. The Northern League will be or ganized much the same the coining year as last it now seems *as far as the other towns are concerned, and a meet ing to lay out the work of the coming, year will be held at Grand Forks, Dec*. 17, at which there should be a reprev sentative from Superior who could, state definitely what Superior will do and generally advise for the good of' the league. Last season the Superior team play ed out the schedule. It was its first year in the league got started late in selecting players and making general arrangements the public subscribed a reasonable amount in support of the team last year, and a few business men here carried the balance of the load themselves and have said nothing about it. A park has been placed in shape at a cost of about $1,000 and the fran chises should be valuable. The old club also has considerable paraphernalia, including bats, bases, old suits, etc., all of which are an asset. It has the first call of a few good players and action should be taken early to put a team 111 at Superior which will win more games than it will lose—at least makfe a representative showing. Personally, I cannot devote any time to baseball the coming year, though 1 am willing to make a reasonable sub scription to the fund to protect the team against loss and I* think several oth^r gentlemen in the city will do the samp: If. a good team is put in and the weather is reasonably good, with the investment that has already been made the Superior team should at least break even, financially, next year and perhaps make money enough to build an athletic park down town for week day games and other sports. An exact accounting of all receipts and expenses of the team last year has been kept and it may be examined by any one who is interested in the tJanU This is not an appeal for money but a request that all baseball fans and all people interested in the national game at Superior should attend the meeting next Saturday night and help decide what is the best action to take for the coming year. Officers should also be chosen at this meeting and an organization perfected for next year. Duluth will be in the league again and has selected most of their' players. 1 tntst that a representative meeting can be had which will make a decision 011 th^ future of league ball in Superior. $2 MORE THAN HALF FARE From St. Paul via Chicago Great West ern Railway to points in Arkansas.

Scofield and Juror Ben Jones, at the Ingalls House last Friday afternoon or evening. Mr. Jones had stated before the court that Sheriff Scofield asked him to his room on the day in question and had there talked to him about the Murphy case, and had told him that Major Murphy was a fine fellow, and that his indictment by the federal grand jury had been brought about by. his political enemies. Sheriff Scofield denied the statement of Jones almost in its entirety. He said that Jones was intoxicated and that he had gone to the Ingalls House on Friday to visit his office, the sheriff said, and had asked him to his room, where Jones offered him a drink. Juror Pritchard in his testimony yes terday told of Sheriff Scofield coming to the hotel on Friday afternoon, and asking Juror Ben Jones if he could see him alone. They had left the room then, but the witness knew nothing farther of what had occurred. He de nied that Jones was intoxicated, and claimed that he had known him about seventeen years and that during hat time he had never kqown him to be intoxicated. The case was rested at this point, when John Burke, attorney for Sheriff Scofield, asked the court to reserve his findings in the case until the conclu sion of the Murphy trial, claiming that whatever the judgment of the court it wduld have its effect on the jury. This was agreed to by Judge Amidon, and Sheriff Scofield was placed under bonds of $1,000. It is expected now that Judge Amidon will dispose of the Sco field case at the close of the Murphy case, and that there will be no argu ments either by the government or by the defense. Scofield is charged with being in con tempt in court, on the ground that he approached Juror Jones in the interests of Major Murphy, knowing at the time that he was a member of the petit jury. Judge Amidon looks on jury-tamper ing as one of the most serious crimes and on that account there is much in terest being manifested in trie judg ment that will be reached in the dis position oi the case against Sheriff Scofield.

(Confined from Upon his arrival here he presented himself at the palace,- seeking a private interview with Governor Wood, who re. ferred him to Major Caziare, then at the head of the government secret ser vice and local police. He told the story of the Montjuich plot to Wood's representative and offer ed for a small consideration to drav\ sketches of the principal anarchist leaders connected with the same for use of the Washington secret service in taking whatever precautionary steps might be decided upon to safeguard President McKinley, President Diaz and the head of any other governments who might attend the Buffalo exposition when opened. But instead of receiving Wood's thanks the correspondent was sent from Cuba, abeard a vessel bound for Vera Cruz, Mcx., communications being senl by the head of the Havana police to the. authorities of Mexico to say that he was 1 dangerous character, and deserved to be watched. Shortly after reaching the City of Mexico the young Italian was arrested upon an evidently trumped-up charge of having attempted to steal some dia monds belonging to a wealthy citizen of the republic, convicted for a long term and sent to Belen penitentiary, in which he is yet a prisoner. The name of the young Italian is Mario Victor. Divizzia. He was a cap tain in the Italian army that was de feated in Abysiunia, according to his own statement, but was stricken from the army lists at home for having joined the Cuban revolution while en joying a year's leave of absence ,to travel abroad.
