Highlanders 7 1 .8751 Fastldios 6 1 .857 Indians 4 3 .571 White Flyer« 2 5 .286 Telegraphers 0 7 .286 The above is the standing of the teams in the indoor baseball league of the Spokane Amateur Athletic club. The season is over next Sun day with the exception of a series of games to be played between the Fastidio3 and Highlanders. This game will be for the pennant, a3 the two teams will probably bo a tie, as next Sunday morning the Fastidios play the Telegraphers, the tall enders, and will surely win. Never since the league started have the Fastidios been in any place but first. Now the Highland ers have crept ahead. When the season started the Highlanders had all their old team from last year. The Fastidios took all the players they could get, the Indians took half of the players left and gave tho other half to tho Telegraphers nnd the White Flyers made up their team from the high school boys. Even with the terrible weather of the present beating thorn in the face, the boys of the S. A. A. C. are talking of going out next Sun day and practicing outdoor base hall. The boy v s are so enthused over the prospects of a good sea son that they aro making every ar rangement possible to have a first class team. "Kicking" Charlie SPORTING BREVITIES It seems tlie bill to prohibit Sun day baseball in Kentucky was in troduced by a member who wanted to get even with Tebeau because be cut Charlie Dexter's salary at a time when Dexter was playing a game s 0 inferior it smelled to high heaven. The legislator happened to be a friend of Dexter's and at the timyvhroatenod to make it cost ly for Tebeau. It looks as though his threat will be carried out. "Buttons" Briggs, one of the four men traded by Chicago to Brooklyn for Sheckard, refuses to sign with the Superlras ami says he will turn outlaw unless his pay chock is ma terially boosted. Maloney and Mc- Carthy, two of the other men who figured In the deal, are also hang ing back waiting for more money. Young Corbett Is in 'Frisco and practically broke. He Is known as a piker at the race tracks and now planks down $1 and $2 bets. In his flush days ho thought nothing of betting $1000 on a race. He is studying a system on "how to bo happy, though broke." Manager Griffith still ha 3 hopes of luring Dave Fultz from his Wall street law office, but Fultz persists thai his baseball days are over He FAINS TOOK PART IN THE FIGHT TTnglaub, the player who threat ened to jump to the outlaws he cause he thought ho was mistreat ed on the salary question, used to] play third base for Milwaukee in I tho old Western League. He was a fast fielder and pretty strong hit ter, but his temper led him to be known as a "rowdy" because of! the wrangling ho indulged In with Other players. "Kid" Lewee was playing at short for Kansas City and there was a strong feeling of dislike between the sunny-topped little Dutchman and Unblaub. Mil waukee and Kansas City were play ing a close game on tho letter's grounds, and the Brewers wero at bat. Considerable ill feeling had shown itself among tho players. Willi a runner on first, a Milwau kee player lifted tho ball to deep center for three bases. As the run ner passed third, it was claimed Lewee caught him by the slack of his uniform and held him long enough to get thrown out at the plate. An ewful roar went up fiom the Brewers, but tho umpire had not seen Lewee and the out was al lowed. Unglaub was the next bat ter, had he knocked tho ball out of the lot. Ho trotted around the base lines until he came to where Lewee was standing, when he sud denly sprang upon tho llttlo sorrel top and with a blow on the point of tho chin knocked him flat. Un.-- laub was stopped at third by a W@b*M ©if Sp>®rt Crowthers, who is to manage the club team, was busy yesterday ask ing all at the club if they had ever played the national game. Come out and try for the team is asked of all by Charlie. ® ® ® It looks as though Spokane fans would see a league this year with but four teams in it. The North west league managers are having a hard time getting the six teams wanted. Helena promoters promis ed to come in, but now there is trouble brewing and that city may nto enter. Bellingham is practic ally out of tho game this year. This leaves Spokane, Tacoma and Butte for a certainty and one other town, possibly Boise, for the fourth. When the Indiana came to their senses after the second inning of the indoor baseball game yester day at tho S. A. A. C, they discov ered they were playing a match game with tho Highlanders, and that during their moments of men tal aberration the Highlanders had mado 10 runs. The Indians, with the exception of the second inning, outplayed the Highlanders at every point of the game. The final score was: High landers, 21; Indians. 14. In the other game ,-layed yester day between the two tailenders, the Whito Flyers won 15 to 10. Tho game was exciting from start to finish. Several Highlanders played with the Telegraphers. did not accompany the team south on its training trip. Tom O'Rourke's fine Tuxedo club, just outside of Philadelphia, where it was announced 20 round bouts would be pulled off, is in a fair way to cost its promoters a let of mon ey. The authorities refuse to issue permits for fights to bo held there and the club house can be used to little advantage for any other pur pose. The Jersey City team has the largest baseball park in the world, but not the largest attendance by any means. "Mexican Pete" Everetts, an old time heavyweight. Is out with an announcement that ho wants to get in the game again. Why docs ho say again? Christy Mathewson has boon the press agent for his younger brother, and that he is a success Is shown in the trial Johnny McGraw is to give the younger Mathewson as a pitcher. Old Cy Young is taking tlie baths at Hto Springs and is said to be as young and frisky as Young Cy Young, or any of the other Cy Youngs of tho vintage of "05. Unglaub and Lewee Mixed it Up. Kansas City player, who squared off for a fight, and in a moment the field was the scene of what looked liko half a dozen riots. The bleachers piled over on the grounds and the threo policemen had a herculean task prying the uniforms and UnUniformed individuals apart. The wrangling continued after the scrappers wero separated. Ung laub was ordered from the game, Manager Cantillou was put outside of the grounds, and about one third of tlie Milwaukee team wns excused from further duty by the umpire. Tho Kansas City team fared almost as badly. There was a hurry-up call for substitutes, aad pitchers and catchers tilled up tho Tenancies made by the earthquake. The g:.ine became a farce, Milwau kee winning by v substantial score, cowever, HOW JIMMY BRITT KEEPS IN CONDITION JIMMIE AND WILLIE BRITT BOXING. James Edward Britt, the light weight idol of the Pacific coast, keeps in good condition by living an exemplary life, regularity in his meals, and a few minutes' daily workout with his brother, Willie, who is a pretty fair boxer himself. Britt still has hopes of meeting Battling Nelson in a 0 round fight and is striving to develop his hit ting power, as that was his great- Special Correspondence to lbs Tress. MOOSUP, Conn.. March 12. — Tehre's a strike at the rrill! This announcement will not startle the outside world. It will cause no panic in the securities market. It won't even start a rip ple of excitement in the cotton weaving industry. But a strike at the mill is to Moosup <he epitome of tragedy. It spells suffering and heartache, means possible hunger and certain homelessness for 400 people old and young. The bell in the gray tower of the mill tolls mournfully each morning, but the weavers do not respond. The men and their wives are hold ing meetings daily In the town hall, where the vessels of French invec tive are upset against the man to whom these simple minded folks attribute their sorrows. But to the children—all must work at the age of 14—this is as yet a gay holiday. For two score years the employes of the Union mill found little fault with their lives. Mothers and fath ers have grown old at the loom and their children have followed them. Unrest came only after old Wm. Cray died, two years ago. For many yeras he had been the "super," as tlie mill hands say. By them he was beloved. When the cotton market went to smash a few years ago, and New England factory centers were staggering, Cray induced his em pkoyens to manufacture higher grades of cloth, for which there was a good demand, and the oper atives did not suffer a cut in wages. When the "uper" died, his son, Henry, young, ttalwart, progres sive, succeeded him. "Ah, well," us the strikers declare, "then came a change." Medle Lafanaire, son of the old bookkeeper ot tho mill, who is now Up-to-date Foot ball, Fighting, and General Athletics est weakness when ho and the Dane met before. Britt has considerable endurance and can stand a fair amount of punishment, but his blows lacked steam when he met the Battler. Britt is much cleverer than Nelson as a boxer; he is striv ing to be his master as a fighter— and the only way he can accomplish that end is by developing a sleep producing punch. A TYPICAL MILL WOMAN. loading the strikers, tells the story. "When the new super came in he lengthened tho cut. so, as we work by piece, we found our wages low er. Our pay dwindled every week. "We struck. Union? No, wo had no union. We are all neighbors and we met and talked It over. We were very angry. We'll not return until he gives us a 10 per cent iuerease in pay." "Oul, oul," cried half a dozen men who stood at hand. "Or unless." put in Medio La fanaire, seriously, "we are starved to It." "Oh. don't talk that way." said a labor leader with shaggy brows and heavy musiach. who had 00me over from Providence to form a union of the people of Moosup and, affiliate It with a national organ ization.

Vandorbilt, was taken to prison today to serve a term of three months for having run down a girl with his automobile, causing her death. An appeal had been sent to the state department in Wash ington, D. C, to intervene in be half of Mr. Shepard, but the state department felt that It had no right to interfere in a case of this kind, and let the law take its course. It is hoped that this case will teach a wholesome lesson to American automobilists, who are touring Europe and are greatly feared on account of their reckless ness and disregard for the safety of the public. AMATEUR BILLIARD CHAMPIONSHIP (Scrlpps News Association.) CHICAGO. March 12.—The great amateur billiard championship tour nament under the auspices of the National Association of Amateur Billiard Players will begin in the club rooms of the Chicago Athletic association this evening. The pub lic will be admitted free of charge. This is the first time that no ad mission is charged to a champion ship billiard tournament.

It was easy to read in their faces distress at the thought of leaving the old home of generations gone. Perhaps half a dozen have bought and paid for their homes. The others live in company houses, pay ing 75 cents, $1 or $1.50 rent per week from their wages. The new 'super" evidently took into consideration early in this lit tle teacup struggle the love of the people for their homos. He obtain ed from Alva G. King, the consta ble, eviction notices, and these were posted on the door of every company house. The law allows 17 days grace, giving the strikers that time in which to think it over. Said Superintendent Cray at the mill oflico: "There will be no set tlement until they come back to work and let us run the mill the way we have to in order to make profit. They are the best paid cot ton mill operatives In New Eng land, and there is no excuse for their actions." The wage scale, according to the strikers, runs now from $2.50 for children "sweepers" to $12 for the most skillful weavers. Ten hours constitute a day.
