WILL ELECT OFFICERS Season 1907 Should Be a Great Success—May Double Num I ber of Games. The second annual meeting of the Northwest Dakota Baseball league will toe held at White Earth, N. D., tonight, find the board of directors and league club representatives from Williston, Mondak, Wheelock, Ray, Tioga, White Earth, Ross, Stanley, Palermo, Tagus, Berthold and Minot will attend. The league season of 1906 was a grand success for the first year. The league played out the entire schedule without a change in the clubs and made baseball the most popular game in that part of the country. In 1907 there is a far greater opportunity, with one year's experience to guide the league. By the addition of Minot and Mon dak, the league has been enlarged and strengthened, and by nearly doubling the number of games this year it should be both a financial and athletic success. Playing Sunday, Wednesday and hol iday games the league could play the entire series from May 6th to August 11th, using the following dates: May S, 12, 17,19, 22, 26, 30 June 2, 5, 9,12, 16, 19, 23, 26, 30 July 4, 7, 10, 14, 17, 21, 24, 28, 31 August 4, 7, 11. At the meeting tonight the league will adopt a schedule, elect officers and revise the constitution and by-laWB, especially that section relating to the release of players. OXFOniNST I IE It Takes Place on Saturday Interest in the Event Keen as Ever. CITI PARK DERBY, BIG EVENT OF RACING SEASON. OCCURS SATURDAY Aaaoclated Prrmi to The Evening Tlmea. New Orleans, La., March 15.—The city Park Derby, the great event of the racing season at the new track, will be run tomorrow and lias been the principal topic of con versation among horsemen for many days. The field that will go to the post will undoubtedly be a classic one for a, winter meeting, many crack 3-year olds being eligible. The Burlaw & O'Xiel combination is ad mitted a strong one, including Sir Toddington, Gild and Judge Post, and It is considered certain that one of these horses will be in the money. Temaceo was brought here from Los Angeles for tlie event and will be heavily backed. Charley Ellison's Yankee Girl is also looked upon as a probable factor in the race. mfUM Prcaa Cable t* The BmlU London, March 15.—The annual boat race from Mortlake to Putney between the crews of Oxford and Cambridge universities will take place tomorrow end Interest in the great aquatic event hi as keen as ever. For weeks the papers have devoted columns to the daily work of the two eights, the bet ting is at its height and after all is said the re appears to be little differ ence between the two boats. The two crews commenced to prac tice the first weekln January and en tered strict training a month later. The last two weeks are by far the most Importana and during this period only is it possible to form definite opinions upon the respective merits of the rival crews. Both wisely decided to kiss no time and to proceed at once to Putney in order to obtain as much practice as possible on the varying waters of the Thames course where the race will take place. Cambridge, la the opinion of most competent crit ics, to a more powerful combination IK O'-'. v.- -vy. •-••w /. mem run next Wednesday, Many of the horsemen here are busily engaged in planning campaigns for the Bennings meet, which opens March 25. The bad training weather in the east is favorable to the owners having strings here, as it is likely that the hardened horses from the winter tracks will have a good chance of getting away with a considerable portion of the stake money when pit ted against the soft easteners. While they openly scoff at the crusade just inaugurated to put an end to racing in Louisiana, the local race track men are considerably wor ried about the matter. The State Anti-Saloon league and the Protestant ministers of the state are the leaders in the movement and declare their in tention of putting the matter fairly and squarely before the next legisla ture. For many years the law-makers of Louisiana have been able to dodge this issue, but it is likely that they will soon be forced to declare them selves. Meanwhile, the race track promoters are shaking in their boots. The haven't forgotten what happened to the racing game in Arkansas, Ten nessee and other states. than Oxford, but they are not so neat or so lively. It is generally agreed that the Oxford crew of this year is very much superior to the one of last year. The past history of the race be tween the rival universities is unique in many respects. The famous crews have fought it out no less than sixty three times, the first race having been rowed in 1829. Since 1856 the event has been pulled off regularly each year without a break. Of the total number of races Oxford has won thirty-four while Cambridge has secured twenty eight, with a sensational dead boat in 1877. The first race rowed in outriggers was in 1845 and was won by the Cam bridge crew by two lengths. The earlier struggles were under the most primitive conditions. In 1857 was held •the first race in which either univer sity rowed in the present style nf eights without keel. In the same race round oars were also used for the first time. Sliding seats were used for the first time in 1878. In 1849 Ox ford won the race on a foul, and ten years later received another bloodless victory, the Cambridge boat having sunk. Twenty minutes was beaten for the first time in 1873, when Cambridge won by three lengths in 19 minutes, 36' seconds. This time stodd as the •best until 1891, when Oxford won by over two lengths in 19 minutes and 21 seconds. All previous records were eclipsed in 1893 when Oxford won by over one length in 18 minutes and 47 seconds. Seven years later Cambridge tied this time record. Beginning with the race of 1890 Ox ford won for nine successive years. This was a repetition of a past per formance, for it also had nine suc cessive victories to its credit begin ning with the year 1861. FRANlTIULLAHE TO HAVE CALUMET CLUB Former Grand Forks Catcher Signs With Michigan Club as Manager. Frank Mullane, the former Grand Forks league baseball catcher has been chosen by the powers that be in base ball circles at Calumet, Mich., to man age the Calumet Northern-Copper Country team for the season of 1907. Mullane, it appears, had been under consideration by the Lake Linden and Fargo teams before those clubs took the rear seat. All the players which were on the Lake Linden list have •been turned over to the Calumet aris tocrats, and Mullane has been secured. "Frankie" played last year with the semi-professional teams of Minneapolis and St Paul and is a good man. He played for two full seasons with the Grand Forks team. KANSAS-NISSOUR Chosen Athletes of Two State Institutions Will Clash This Evening. Kansas C|ty, Mo., March 15.—In Con vention hall tonight the chosen ath letes of the Missouri State university and the University of Kansas will meet once again to contest for supremacy In indoor athletics. Large delegations of students from the two universities have arrived to cheer their respective teams. Both teams have been training hard for the meet and appear to be In fine fettle.

Milwaukee, Wis., March 15.—Eddie Gruenwald of Milwaukee and Kid Murphy of New York will meet in the windup at the show to be put on to night by the Milwaukee Boxing club. The little men will clash at 112 pounds ringside and at this weight the Coney island champion will have a decided advantage, as Gruenwald is at his best when down to 106 or 10S pounds. For this reason and because of Murphy's greater ring experience the latter is a decided favorite in the betting. Steve Kinney will meet Frankie Baker of Chicago in the semi windup.

FOLEY Humorist and Poet... Few legislatures can boast of hav ing as an officer who is a humorist as versatile and as bubbling as was Mark Twain in his palmiest days. Yet such is the record of that of North Dakota. James W. Foley, secretary of the senate and for several years a prominent figure at the state capitol, holds a place second only to the great Twain in his wit and captivating humor. There is usually little in the proceedings of a dignified senate to furnish food for such things, yet Foley managed to get abundance of humor cut of the situation. It was he who so numbered the senate bills that the anti-pass measure of Senator Young became known as "23", and during all the session, and especially during the last few days when it was known that the bill had gone to the legislative happy hunting grounds, It was the butt of no end of humor from the secretary of the senate. During these few days the members became interested in the final passage of bills in which they were personally concerned had the official and formal announcement of the secretary that "the president is about to sign" a cor tain bill was always sufficient to se cure the attention of every member. It was at this time that "23" died in conference the last day of the ses sion the secretary would rise in his place at the desk with a number of engrossed bills in his hand and with solemnmein announce that "the pres ident is about to sign senate bill—"23" The grim humor of the thing was so contagious that visitors at the capitol and members of the house spent con siderable time in the senate chamber for the purpose of hearing the joke. In the evening while the senate was making a social and fun-making visit to the house, the secretary appeared in the house chamber and had the sargent-at-arms announce officially "a message from the senate." Speaker Twitchell bit at the fun and officially received the message. Foley then proceeded to read the message as fol lows: "Mr. Speaker: I have the honor to Inform you that during the ^absence of all the members of the senate except Senator LaMoure, sen ate bill 23 has been indefinitely post poned." The humqr of this was the more apparent because of the fact that Senator LaMoure was the only member who was not participating in the round of fun which was then being indulged in by the members of both branches of the legislature, and the further fact that he had been accused during the session of being the representative of the railroads. Foley's humor comes like the bub bling of a mountain spring and is as rippling as the meadow brooks be side which lovers delight to sit and dream. He is versatile, terse and con cise. When he says a thing in print you at once wonder if it could be said in any other manner without destroy ing the beauty of the expression. As a poet he plays on the heart strings and reaches the same emotions that made James Whitcomb Reiley an idol. He understands human nature in its most delicate sense and he has the happy faculty of reaching that nature with an ease and grace which capti vates ere you are aware. Foley is a •humorist and a poet of more than ordinary ability and his lines will live between covers as the melodies of one possessed of the highest poetic al temperament WATCHING EVELYN'S ORDEAL. Nan Paterson, who Is now Mrs. Leon G. Martin, the wife of a downtown ho tel clerk, a Fioradora girl and friend of Evelyn Nesblt Thaw, who was d.'fi charged after two trials for the killing of "Caesar" Young, left her Wilklns burg home Tuesday night for Wash ington, where her parents reside. Mr. Martin is soon to join her there. The similarity of the ordeal Evelyn Nesblt Thaw is undergoing and the ex perience of Nan Patterson caused aome interest in the question as to what Mrs. Martin thought of Thaw's case. Her husband says, however, that she has not expressed any opinion In the matter. She has followed the case pretty closely, but bas discreetly with held her opinions. Mr. and Mrs. Martin will shortly find anew home where all thpt is past may •be forgotten and anew life begun. *,* rj rs^fr^ STATE GRAB HC Egeland Is expecting a new flour mill. There is a distinctive odor of sul phuric local politics down Bismarck way. The Northwestern Educational as sociation of the state will meet at Mi not April ath and 6th. It is claimed that the Soo will be running trains between Bismarck and Minot over its own lines by the 1st of July. The village of Know has a suit against the Great Northern for viola tion of the speed limit In the incorpo ration. There was an explosion of acetylene gas at the hotel at Plaza, and for a time things were going skyward at a decidedly lively rate. The Soo's new coast line will not be built from eumare, the company be built from Kenmare, the company having decided to build from Carpio. The Michigan Arena announces in colored headlines that the elevators at that point are paying three cents per bushel above the market price for grain. The Pink Paper thinks the people got all they asked from the legislature except the anti-pass law. But Willson is optimistic after landing that oil in spection job. A Sawyer man who froze to death— according to an eastern* paper—called on the Minot Reporter last week, just to let the editor see what a lovely "stiff" he was. As a matter of inquiry, will some one please inform the public whether or not the president of the state W. C. T. U. is a member of the Valley City initiative and referendum club? It might be a good idea for the scrap book editor to secure the services of his political products in this county to do a stunt for his present publication like they did for the university while at the legislature. There Is some talk of the newspa pers of the state presenting a walking stick to Representative Piper of Cass county, the economist who tried to get a law passed preventing the publica tion of the annual statement of the board of education. The first issue of the Mott Pioneer Press, published at Mott, in Hettinger county by S. J. Small, has made Its appearance. It is said that the policy of the paper will be the development of that vast territory in the southwest ern part of the state. The McCumber Herald explained its late appearance as due to the arrival of a baby boy at the editorial home. We must 'have -been mistaken hereto fore when we took the name at the masthead of that journal as that of one of the sterner sex. There is some talk among the rem nants of the socialists of the state to have Representative Garden of Bot tineau county put in charge of the railroads of the state. He has proven that he knew less about them than any other jnan In the state. The new county division law which enables a county to be divided by a majority vote of the entire county In stead of a majority vote of the entire county as well as the several propos ed divisions, it is said will result in a division of McLean county. The Chautauque management are making arrangements to increase their railroad facilities for the coming sea son. A new train will be put on and sidings will be laid midway on the road for passing purposes and trains will be run every thirty minutes and oftener when necessity demands. Louis Baeverstad, C. L. Lindstrom, Tim Miahaney, John Kerkeby and J. H. Forest of Mlnnewaukan, and C. E. Lindstrom, of Langdon, have pur chased 51,000 acres of land in Texas. The price paid for the land was $500, 000 and the new owners will cut the tract up into small farms for coloniz ation purposes. When the bill changing the law for publishing the annual insurance ^state ments was before the house, and an amendment was being considered to publish the statements but once at six ty per cent of legal rates, Representa tive Chapman of Williams cqjinty sug gested that perhaps it would be better to publish them in the catalogues of the Chicago mall order houses so the farmers could read them. The way the White Earth Record went after the St. Paul Pioneer Press on account of the charge made in the Pioneer Press, that there was scarcely a case of final proof that was not tainted with fraud was a source of delight to those who realize the sland ers on the honest homesteaders of this state which have been sent out to the world through the colums of that moribund sheet. An organization has been formed at Denbigh for the purpose of drilling for gas and oil. Several parties in that section who formerly lived In the grea oil fields of Pensylvanla, claim that they are certain that the Mouse river valley Is underlaid with gas and oil. Their claims are not without some foundation in this vicinity. A farmer in Bottineau county has a well which furnishes him with both heat and light. Oil forms on the water In the well on the John Mor tensen place five miles west of Tow ner to such an extent at times that the water can hardly be used.
