LOONS - Bob is Evidently Planning to Become a LO&GINli CONTRACTORS As most of the large logging con ti actors of the co'pper country have eomph ted their skidding and banking, tho severe snow storm thL week will rot entail as severe a loss as would have been tho case, had it occurred earlier In the season. Contractors with long hinds Mill llnd it expensive to keep their ice roads open, but as the recent thaws left the road In geod condition, it is not likely that the work In the woods will be hampered from tl is time on. Smaller eontractors, however, will find their work serious ly interfered with, and It is likely that some of them will be forced to leave logs In the wood: this winter, being ui au'.o to ykld and bank them. Several larre camps are In operation In the vicinity of Twin LakeB on the C-. i pe r Range road and a number of rmaller cam;- near Pelkle. The har vest at Twin Lakes consists mostly of pine, while that near Pelkle of hem lock and hardwood, to be used for inlno timber and rollers. "The market for hemlock Is showing considerable Improvement of late," raid a well known contractor in dis cussing the situation today, "nnd we expect the remainder of the season to see still further Improvement." This situation Is very pler.sing to the lumber operators, for It is a well known fact that hemlock has been selling below a rrrmal price in comparison with the price of other timber, during the last few year 3. LIVED IN KEWEENAW CO. Horace Greeley Spent One Year There at Pennsylvania Mine. This is the one hundredth anniver sary of the birth of Horace Greeley founder of the New York Tribune, and candidate for the Presidency on the Democratic ticket In 1S72. It has a peculiar significance for Keweenaw county, as Horace lived In Keweenaw for one year at what was then known as the Pennsylvania property, now the Manltou, says the Keweenaw Miner. Tho house that ITnclo Horace occu pied with the late Father Ktinz, the winter he spent en Lake Superior, is still standing and In a fair state of preservation. It stands just north of tho residence occupied by the late Alex P. Thomas when he was super intendent of the Conglomerate prop erty. One of the anedotes related of fjreeley when he lived here, was as follows: An old Philadelphian, named Ralley, camo here in the forties and settled at Mandan, and the property not turning out as he hojed for, seemed to unsettle his mind somewhat, and he was for many years regarded as "queer." When Uncle Horace was up here, Ralley be came well acquainted with him, and told him that ho was making a revision of the bible, and asked flreeley If he would publish It when ho had It com pleted, which the latter agreed to do, If It met with his approval. Later on, when It was about complete P.alley sent it on to New York, with the request for any criticisms, Uncle Hor ace would see fit to make. A short time after, tho bible was returned with the following criticism: "The author of this work was cither crazy when he wrote or else had the nightmare." Horace Greeley. 'TIs needless to add that the work was never published. One of tho things the bible contained and which was written by Ilalley was, that God was a poor architect, for If he wasn't, he would have placed tho calf of one's leg In front, so that there would not he so many barbed shins. It was filled w ith a lot of sifch nonsense. LAURIUM BRIEFS. .rt f. Johnson Vivian and Capt. Thonns Hoatson of Lavrlum left yesterday for Chicago on ibuslness. Tho directors of the Fiorina Water company will meet this evening to elect officers for tho ensuing year. It Is rumored there will the opposi tion to several of the trustees of tho vlllao of Ijinrliim and poslbly to President Reynolds at the co ning election. THE CALUMET NEWS. REFUSE TO MEET THE HARDY TURK MAHMOUT IS PRACTICALLY OS TRACIZED BY HEAVYWEIGHT WRESTLERS. CAN'T SCORE MATCHES. Chicago, Feb. 4 There is nothing complex or complicated In this heavy weight wrestling situation, although to read some of the stories printed about affairs among the big fellows one becomes distracted and delirious. Summed up the whole thing Is this: There are three leading contenders for a chance at Frank Gotch's title George Hackenschmidt, Yusslff Mah nout and Stanislaus Zbjszko. Gotch has said that lie wished a series of elimination trials, these three men to decide which Is the best at this time, he to get the chance at Gotch for the title. Hackenschmidt and Zbyszkn dissent from this arrangement. For purely personal reasons, mainly reasons of their managers, they decline to have aught to do with Mahmout because of the latter's connections with Antoine Plerrl, who, they say, has been an extremely "bad actor," both here nnd in Europe, circulating stories that re flected deep discredits on all of them. That Is the nub of the whc:e thing. Tho "Lion" and tho Polo decline abso lutely to "see" Mnhmout at any stage of the game. Thus is Mahmout out In the cold and even the machinations of the so-called "trust." as the Mahmout people are pleased to refer to the only club that can get any money are Impotent In the situation. The trust would like to get Zbyszko to wrestle Mahmout or have Hackenschmidt out Into the game with the Turk, but persuasion Is in vnin. The two foreigners an- a unit in this matter and that has ended ab ruptly all negotiations. Gotch says he does not want to train for more than one match or else he would take them on one at a time. He has erected Mahmout as a bulwark, although on the straight dope the Turk does not figure ns strongly as either of the others. Gotch beat the Turk in seventeen minutes, two falls, while Zbyszko stuck a matter , of thirty-flve with the champion, while Hackenschmidt wasn't thrown at all to his shoulder blades. Zbyszko has beaten Mahmout twice, once in an hour's handicap and again In a level match that Pierrl now says wasn't honest. Naturally the dope now Is, or should be, that the Pole and the Turk take holds once more and wipe out the stain of that match, wherever the stain lies. The Pole won't do it. He says, even If he felt Inclined to, there wouldn't be any money In it or enough for him to quit the road shows. Hackenschmidt says he came to this country to match with Gotch If the champion was willing. If he was not willing the "Lion" said ho would be on his way to other parts. He has taken, through his manager, Jack Curley, a dignified stand regarding Gotch. When he learned that tho champion had retired he didn't challenge' him. but dropped the whole thing. That's how the matter stands as far as he Is concerned. Ho will meet Gotch, ap parently, or nobody. The resul Is there nro no "big" matches In sisht and t the present writing none like ly. Mahmout does not care to go on the road and "hustle," tho way "Hack" nnd the Pole nro hustling, and Is grieving silently here without work. LEACH CROSS DEFEATED. Now York. N. Y., Feb. 4. Sammy Smith, a Philadelphia lightweight, out fought Leach Cross of New York, In all save one of ten rounds last night. In the second round Cross showed to advantage, but all others were Smith's.

"Mike" .Murphy, trainer ef the football and track teams of the University of I'cnn sjlvania, has suggested the following changes in foot ball rules: "First Let the quarter rests be abolished. The collegian does not heed them; they are proper for the younger scholastic youth, who Is not so well developed. "Secondly Drop the rule permit ting the free catch. It Is only used by players who are afraid to take a chance, or cripples who wish to save themselves from a toss to the earth. "Third Add a little to the assist-, ance accorded the halfback and per mit him to havo a player drive Into the line, using his hands to tug, twist or Jerk along. "Fourth Make all territory equal and no restrictions on the zones now existing within the 25-yard line of the goal. "Fifth Allow the forward pass to be used anywhere and any one ell gible to accept the same except the guards, tackles and center. "Sixth Take away the present 20 yard minimum on the onslde kick Permit tho play ut any time and the ball to go any length with every one but the guards, tackles and center ell glble to receive it, either on the bound or Hi'. "Seventh Abolish the rule that pro tects a catcher or a punt, Permit him to be driven from under the ball If the ends or halfbacks or any player of the opposition is fast enough to reach him prior to his catching the ball." ATTACK ON FOOTBALL. Maroon Daily Makes Charges Against Athletic Management. Chicago, F'cb. 4. Kven John D l Rockefeller's University of Chicago Is allowing Its desire for a name In ath letics to overcome Its desire for fame In pedagogy, according to the Daily Maroon, the official students' paper, which charges that the university is proselyting for students with fair rec ords in athletics. In part the Maroon charges that: Candidates for the football team are kept at work so long they cannot even make a pretense at studying. Students enter the university large ly because of the opportunity of exer cising their athletic, prowess. Ninety-nine per cent of tho stu dents take no part In athletics except to shriek from the bleachers.

HARVARD AND CARLISLE. Crimson and Indians Renew Athletic Relations After Lapse. Roston, Mass., Feb. 4.

Haughton would have pre ferred Amherst to Carlisle but Am herst was already scheduled for this date. Harvard's schedule will likely wind up with Drown, Princeton, Carlisle, Dartmouth and Yale, which means that tho crimson will have a tremen dous Job cut out for her. WOLGAST-McFARLAND BOUT.

Owen Moran, the Rrltish fighter who defeated Rattling Nelson, deicarcs that American fighters are the best In the world. He said: "I am an accident. I have learned a whole lot about the fight game since corning to America and my fight with Nelson was worth all my previous ring experience. In addition to this I have watched many other matches here and for cleverness one must hand it to the Yankees, as you say over here. Tho English fighters are just as 'game' as the Americans, but they lack the speed nnd general ring cleverness. "Rattling Nelson gave mo a hard battle and he was fighting every inch of the way to the very last Anyone who thinks Nelson Is out of the run ning Is grandly mistaken. He has a lot of fight left In him. I am looking forward with great pleasure to my event with Ad Wolgast, whom I do not consider in the same class with Nel son. "I will take home with me a grand Impression of the fairness of the Am erican sporting public. You know over In England there are many who think a real sportsman can't be found out side the Rrltish isles, but I want to ray that the American public has treated me finely and nobody can ever tell me again that there is anything but squareness in the attitude of peo ple over here towards siorts. Ameri cans lose hard, but they cheerfully give credit to the best man." COLLEGE BOXING LEAGUE. Other Schools Invited to the Meet With Pennsylvania. Philadelphia. Pa., Feb. 4.
