London, May 6.—The Irish national ists, who have refused to take any part in the various entertainments ar ranged for the colonial premiers, even that given toy the house of commons, will give a banquet for the prime min isters this evening. It is expected that the dinner will be made the oc casion for a great heme rule demon stration, as all the premiers are proo nounced advocates of the self-govern ment of Ireland. The affair assumes especial importance at this time, ow ing to the fact that the Irish council bill will be Introduced in the house of commons tomorrow. In regard to the terms of the proposed measures wide differences of opinion exist between the government and the Irish nation alists, but the latter hope to obtain through amendments what is with held in the original bill. A few of the cabinet members who favor home rule were willing to grant the de mands ot Chairman John Redmond, leader of the Irish parliamentary party, but the majority favor a meas ure far short of what the nationalists ask for. The bill, as it will toe pre sented by Secretary tor Ireland Blr rell, provides for an Irish council, in part elective and in part nominative, which shall administer the Internal affairs of the island, exclusive of the army and navy, but will have little law-making powers. FAREWELL TO "GYPSY" SMITH.

Shelton, president ot the National Bible Institute. ULlEMSlHie LEAGUE For Next Few. Days There Will Be Something Doing All the Time. All teams of the 'Northern Copper Country league are now practicing for the opening on May 16, a little over a week from today. It Is anticipated that by that time the members of the various nines will be in first class condition for the season. The Calumet "Aristocrats" re ported in St Paul for prelim inary practice last week, and expect to put in the next few days meeting some of the fast nines in and around St. Paul and Minneapolis. The Giants, as the Houghton team is called, are now busy in Wisconsin, although the first game of the week, scheduled to be played in Oshkosh, had to be can celled, owing to recent snowstorms in that district. However, before the team returns to Houghton it will have had some good workouts, during which time Captain Taylor will have weeded out the undesirables, and have selected a permanent lineup. Only one of last year's Calumet team has been signed for this season. He is "Biddy" Dolan, the lanky first baseman, and one of the best hitters in the league. Two of the men secur ed by Manager-Captain Frank Mul lane are Kurke and Newcomtoe of last year's Lake Linden team. Kurke will do the backstop work, assisted by Mullane, while Newcombe is on the pitching 'staff. Calumet's first game is scheduled to be played with the fast St. Thomas college team of St. Paul. The team has secured the use of the St. Paul American association team for its games in the Saintly city, and expects to be in the best possible shape when the N. C. league seasons opens on Thursday, 'May 16. Calumet is schedul ed to open the season in Winnipeg, with Houghton playing In Duluth. Captain Taylor, of the Giants, in formed the Jhome management last week that he had signed several addi tional players, and that when the team returned to Houghton the latter part of the week, in order to meet the Medicin4 Hat team a week from Sun day, there need be no fear as to the ability of the men brought along with him. Taylor had his men join him in Chicago the first of the week and they put In a couple of davs practic ing on the grounds of the West End, one of the teams of the Chicago City league. Over at Eau Claire, Wis., the Duluth White Sox are limbering up, playing against the Wisconsin State league team of that city. In two games play ed so far, the Wisconslnites tcok one and lost one. The first game resulted in the White Sox being drubbed ter ribly. It was a ireal cold day, in fact, more suitable to football than base ball. The final score was 18 to 3. The curtain is kindly drawn on the particulars of the slaughter. The next game played resulted in the Soxs redeeming themselves, winning in a well played' game with a score of 5 to 2. Cummins worked in the box for Duluth. The Wlnnipegers are at LaCrosse, Wis., working out the ldnks. In a game with the team of that city, the Canadians were defeated by a score of 5 to 0, poultry produce being the only thing the Maroons could draw. President Pulford, however, is well satisfied with the work of the team during the training trip. Winnipeg is making great arrange ments for the opening of the season. Mayor Ashdown will cast the first toall over the pan, or rather, as near as possible. Happyland will be the scene of the game in that city this year, and the diamond will be in first class condition. The Winnipeg baseball club has re ceived from the Htbbhig team of the Copper Country district, a letter, in which they have accepted the offer to play a series of exhibition games in Winnipeg prior to the opening of the Northern-Copper Country season. The dates which the Hibbing team will fill are May 13 and 14, the Lethbridge club playing a series of games then on May 9, 10 and 11. These will be the only games in which the Maroons will figure in their home city before the opening of the league ARE FIGHTING. Dr. P. R. Glass, president and sec retary 'of the Northern-Copper Coun try league, is in a controversy with President Lennon of the Chicago American association team, which .promises to end before the national commission. Last fall, Vorpagel of the Calumet team, and Aowell of the Houghton Giants, were ostensibly purchased by St. Paul. The pur chase money was not paid, however, although Dr. Glass took the matter up with Secretary Farrell several times. Now St. Paul has turned the two men over to Madison, in the Wisconsin State league, and the Cal umet and Houghton magnates want to see the men or the money. HIGH SCHOOL LOST. Minnesota Team Won From Fargo by the Score of 4 to 1. Fargo, N. D.. May 6.—In a well played game, of baseball at Hawley, Minn., Saturday, between the Fargo high school team and the high school team of Hawley, the Dakotans were defeated by 4 to 1.
