Up*to*Date Sporting News.
Referring Directly to the Followers of Baseball. Now bore's a chance for some fun,' fellows. This up-to-date corner of the Press wants to stir up something that will not result in too strenuous a time for the sporting pipe, but, just the same, will get the "bunch" to working and talking. The baseball senson—the talking part—is now upon us nnd it ll proposed to give all the fans a chance to make suggestions, peddle a little bull con, hot air, "warm" hot cakes and deal out short bits iv a first class house. Yob see, there was all kinds of room for criticism in the way the crowds were handled on the start of Inst sen son. The "crowds" nt the close of the season were easier to handle-that's a joke but forget it. With all the chan ces for critisism let's have a little talk on what would belter things this year. Any old subject will do tho business. You can josh the pluyers, the man agement or anyone you please, but please don't joke with the rain checks and call down the wrath of Jupiter Pluvius. Tho Press will stand for it all. And now the members nf the athle tic club are all swelled up about it. About what? Why those handsome new pool and billiard tables. Can't blame them. Ben Wingard of Sandpoint, Idaho, is gelling affluent, nil right, but it's a pipe he has never had to do with pngl this side of the water. Hut we'll let it go and consider he was joking when be offered a purse of 50 plunks for n fight between two of tho best little Bien at large in this section. PNEUMONIA AND LA OBIPPE.

At Lebanon, Kan., lloyde's elevator Is being removed from the Rock Island right of way because the scrip tural quotations with which its four Hides are covered la huge white let ters attract so much attention from Chicago.—The order closing the Coliseum will lie rescinded ami the national republican convention will he held there In Juno as already ar ranged, Spokane Proof William OordOK Of 1411 Twelfth avenue says: "I have been subject to kidney complaint for a food many years, ami during that lime 1 have had some very severe attacks. During one espe cially severe two years ago I was doubtful whether I ever would pull through. I finally recovered nnd have had no severe recur rences since, although at tlmsi I feel very much depressed and have n dull, tired aching In the smnll of my back over th* kid neys, accompanied with difficulty with tha kidney aocretlona. This was my condition some time ago, when Doan's Kidney Pllli were brought to my notice, and 1 procured v box at the Scully Drug Company's store, on Hlvetslde avenue. 1 obtained prompt rollef from Its use. Anyone who gives this remedy a trial can not help being pleaaed with the reaulti which will surely follow." QAHS TO BOX rmOEBALD. DETROIT, .Mich., Jan. 7.—Joe Cans, the lightweight champion, - and Willie Fitzgerald of Brooklyn are slated for a ten-round go at the Metropolitan Athletic club here tonight and followers of listic events are looking forward to seeing one of the best fights ever pull ed oft hereabouts. Under the articles of agreement the men are to weigh in at fi o'clock this evening at 135 pounds. Fitzgerald's recent showing against Mike Ward and other good men of his class has given rise to a feeling of con fidence among his admirers that he will be able to hold his own with the re doubtable colored boy from Baltimore. The latter appears to be in tine fettle and expresses no doubt over the out come. The match has ( tented a wide spread interest iv sporting circles and delegations are expected to be on hand from Port Huron, Sarnie, Toledo and other points. Medal Bowlers Numerous. Howling for the championship medal hung up by the Coeur d'Alene club ii booming in great style just now. The men were very slow in commencing their fifty games each, but when one? started the way they are going at it is a caution nnd shows the interest in the matter to be at fever heat? The trophy is valuable and the honor of being the champion ten-pin bowler of Spokane is worth much itself. Once this medal has been won it is thn property of the winner for all time and will not be submitted for further com petition among the players. Tumwaters Getting Busy. " 1 (lit certainly vill satisfy me mit lifing. yet already," said Dutch Jake when he and Lou Bertenneau were talking of Ihe cocked-hat match which is scheduled for tonight nt the private alleys. "Kef ze game is won." Bertenneau has a cute way of accent ing the last sylable or word that to read properly one must talk like a Lizzy boy, but at the same time be very careful that someone don't poke you in the solar. travelers that many of them miss their trains. Passengers alight to study the Inscriptions and the rail way ofßoiala can not get them hack In lime. 18, I>. Heyde, owner of the biblical elevator. Is a Free Methodist. Boise, Idaho.—Tlie state land hoard haa rejected the application of the ! Idaho River Improvement company lor a franchise to Improve the north fork of the Clearwater for logging 1 purposes, SPOKANE BACKS Most Spokane people have bad backs. Some suffer severely from backache pains, others have attacks that harass, annoy, but seem not serious. Many grievous mistakes come through back neglect. The ap parent weakness which causes every little strain on the back, every cold, every exertion to bring backache pains, is a tell-tale warning from the kidneys. The kidneys are overworked, they become congested, and if you do not relieve them, urinary disorders follow —Diabetes—Dropsy —Bright's Disease. Doan's Kidney Pills not only cure the backache, but cure the kidneys of every complication that attacks them. Patton Proposes a New Scheme for the Bowlers. There is some talk now as well as apprehension regarding the successful formation of nn interstate bowling league. A meeting will be called for this city January 15, according to pres ent plans, and if the thing is favored with success, well and good. But, in case tho representatives of the other clubs cannot be brought to consider things as pointing to the success of the enterprise, Owney l'atton, manage;- of the Coeur d'Alene alleys, has al ready prepared a solution to the sit tuition as it now stands. An Inland Empire league will be formed in the meantime while the slate organization is getting into shape. This Inland Empire league will be one of the four sections proposed for the state league. Patton is small of stat ure but, to judge by some of the schemes he is constantly working on, he is there with the grey matter like Japan is with her war preparations. Owney proposes the folloowing sceme: organize a small league or section of the state organization, comprising the towns of Pullman, Moscow, Colfax, KockfordTind some others, also a cou ple of clubs in this city. Let them all visit Spokane and take a fall out tt the local talent —if they can, of course, but then it's not to be presumed any one can do this. After all these clubs have visited Spokane, Patton and Irs bold and bolder ones will take a week's lay off and hop around en* circuit and take falls out of the clubs before men tioned- and of course it is presumed tlie falls will belong to the Spokane team because they can certainly hook, or bowl, it onto anything in these parts. Patton's scheme is a pippin all right. It is an easy solution to the trouble until the state organization can g''t thoroughly on its working basis. McHiniey's Monument CANTON. 0.. Jan. 7.—Tho National McKlnley Memorial association lias received two piaster deelnrna for the McKlnley monument. One of the boxes weighs half a ton, the other 300 pounds.
