DAILY ESTABLISHED 1870. RICHMOND DAILY PALLADIUM. SATURDAY, APRIL 9, 1901. ONE CENT A COPY. THE IMAGERS IE THE PROTESTED GAMES STAND AS PLAYED RICHMOND ON TOP. MR. HENLEY AND FOX Had a Little Bout, "Which Ends up Without Much Damage Two Proposition Rejected. Great interest was manifested in this city in the outcome of the meet ing of the Western Roller Polo league managers at Anderson yesterday. TIi3 decision was in favor of Richmond, and the pennant belongs to the home team and it will be presented to them at the game next Wednesday night. Fox and Henley got into an alterca tion when affidavits were , introduced by Fox in regard to the Marion Richmond game at Richmond Wed nesday evening. One of these affi davits was signed by Mr. Stinson, proprietor of the Marion club. When Fox introduced it Henley sprang to his feet and called Stinson a liar. Mr. Stinson said nothing, but Fox took it up, and after some high Avords he called Henley a" liar." Henley immediately clinched with him, and they had a lively wrestle for a few seconds. The others in the room started to interfere, and Jessup, of Richmond, reached the combatants first. Fox evidently thought Jessup came to help Henley, instead of to part them, and he tried to strike Hen ley, but was prevented. No blows were actually landed during the me lee, and the only damage resulting was a badly mussed collar for Fox and a scratched cheek for Henley. During the rest of the meeting both men talked pretty loud, but no fur ther fighting was indulged in. The meeting was called for the pur pose of discussing Fox's protest on playing of Farrell, of Muncie, in the Richmond-Indianapolis game Tues day night and the -Marion-Richmond game. The managers decided that both games will stand as played. After the decision Fox offered to post $1,100, of which $000 was put up by himself and his men and $500 by Stinson, with Secretary Durbin, President Norton or any one Henley migh select, to cover a series of three games between Marion and Richmond, to be played on neutral ground. Henley refused this offer, but made a counter proposition, to the effect that he would bet Fox $500 on one game, to be played at Richmond. Fox also refused. As announced a day or so ago, Dur- bin and Norton tendered their resig nations, but it was not considered ad visable to accept them until after the formal awarding of the pennant. The resignations will be accepted at the annual meeting of the board, which probably will be held within the next two weeks. Men outside the ranks will be elected for next year, and an arbitration board of three disinterest ed men probably will be selected also. The proposition of putting the league on a percentage basis will come up for consideration at this meeting, and the managers seem more favorable to the proposition than in former years. Mr. Henley is at home today, and, from al appearances, came out of yesterdaj-'s battle without a scar. Fven the scratch that . the dispatches said he had did not appear on his face this morning. He is very proud of the fact, however, that the decision was in favor of Richmond, and he did not see what other decision could have been arrived at. ' 'BOWERS The Cartoonist, to be in Richmond Soon.

IN CHICAGO IN JUNE Senators Fairbanks and Beveridge and Congressman Watson Men tioned in Connection With Chairmanship. At the Republican national con vention at Chicago it seems as if In diana will be honored several times. The temporary and permanent chair manships are eagerly sought after. At these great gatherings Indiana has al ways stood well, and this time will prove no exception to the rule. The names of Fairbanks, Beveridge and Watson have been mentioned for the chairmanship. A dispatch from Washington saysi "At the Philadelphia convention in 1900 Indiana was given one of the highest honors, Senator Fairbanks having been made chairman of the committee on resolutions. At the Chicago gathering the Hoosier state will undoubtedly be conspicuous. There is a chance that either Senator Beveridge or Representative Watson may be selected for one of thechair manships. Both have many friends among the party leaders, and each hold high rank as orators in the re spective houses." harieWman Sang Sweetly at Christian Church Re vival "Baptism by Analogy" Rev.

BRIDGE fiTTERS LYING DORMANT ENTHUSIASM IN REGARD TO IT HAS CONSIDERABLY ABATED. NO WORK WILL BE DONE On it Until 1905 Laid Too Summar ily on the Shelf, Think Many The interest and enthusiasm in re gard to the project for the south side bridge has abated considerably. The county commissioners laid, the matter on the shelf at their meeting until the meeting in September, and so nothing can be done until that time, and it is very probable that work will not be started on the bridge, if indeed it should be built at all, until the fall of 1905. Somehow or other, it is felt by all as though the commissioners did not give the matter the attention it deserved in summarily setting it aside for almost a year. Enthusiasm ran high on the question and it was expected that the commissioners would take some definite and imme diate action on the matter, especially after the ood, reasons for its build ing, put forth at the meeting of the South Side Improvement association, council and the commissioners. A well known business man who is greatly interested in this scheme said this morning that, for his part, he did not believe any action would be taken on the matter in September. The commissioners will then be very busy, and, being so near winter, no action in regard to the actual work of con strnction can be taken, and so the matter will lie until spring. But, at that time, every effort -will be put forth to have the bridge built during the next summer. BUTTONS-DID NOT ARRIVE FOR SOME REASON THEY HAVE NOT ARRIVED WILL BE HERE MONDAY. PEOPLE ARE DIVIDED As to the Probable Success or Failure of the Scheme for "Boom" .,- I IK Mil I III HI Purposes. The buttons, which are to be sold for the purpose of booming Rich mond, have not yet arrived. It was confidently expected that they would come this morning and that the sale of them would start Monday, but, for some reason or other, the buttons did not materialize as the promoters yof the scheme expected. However, they will be here sure by the first of next week, when the active work on the sale of them to start the "boom" which has been lying dormant for some time, will be commenced. In regard to the probable success or failure of the scheme as a means of booming the city little is definitely known. As in almost everything, the people are divided, by f ar the larger part being confident of the success of the scheme and sanguine that en thusiasm will be awakened by the use and sale of these buttons. The but tons will be about an inch and a quarter wide, with . "I'm for Rich mond" in black letters on a white ground. They will be put on sale sometime next week.
