THURSDAY, MARCH ££. Tea*.
Local Bowling, Foot-ball, Pool and Box ing Kid Fredricks has been matched to fight Indian Joe Gregg in the Col lins theater, Rossland, April 7. Fredricks left for Rossland this morning where he will train for the fight. Gregg will go to Rossland •immediately after the Parker- Thompson fight, March 30. Poor old Fredricks is trying to fight again, and everyone is glad he has the match for he needs the money. He got a go with Sailor Kelly and beat him in nine rounds. Now he is going to rty his luck with Gregg. At one time Fredricks was one of the best men in the business. Gregg also recently fought Kelly. The Indian won in five rounds, but it is said he could have won In one had he desired to. ® ® ® Billie Conners announces that as president of the city league ho will see that th9re will be no rowdy ball playing during the coming season. ® ® ® It looks as though Spokane lovers of baseball would see a six team league instead of a four team. At a meeting held yesterday and last night, it was decided to have Spo kane, Tacoma, Butte and Grays Harbor in the league and to choose the other teams from tho Walla Walla-Pendleton combination, Boise or Vancouver. Last night a wire was received from Helena, Mont., stating the Montana town would nurely come in. Tins will make a good league and good ball can be expected th Is year. The question of a salary limit also came up and after a prolonged discussion it was deckled to fix it at $1500. The schedule was Bxod from April 15 to Sept. !». This will give each team about 100 games. .® ® ® Manager McCredie of the Port FIRST NAN TO THROW A CURVE. 1 His Pitching Was a Sensation. Arthur Cummings was the first pitcher who made good use of the curved hall, although the discov ery of the secret of throwing a curve is attributed to a pitcher of the name of Mann. Rase ball was *ar from the stage of perfection it has attained as a sport and a busi ness In roceut years when the curv ed ball was discovered. In the old en days the pitcher threw tbe ball rwlth an underhanded motion and (with nothing like the lightning speed which characterizes the best twlrlers of tho present time. Cum miings threw only one curve —a wide out. It is itoubtfu] whether ho dreamed eyed that the spore could be forced from its direct course, either upward, down or in ward, as the pitcher willed. Oumming'a fame rapidly spread over the country and he was as much an object of interest as ©INC MORE STEEL MANATE IS IN MATRIMONIAL TROUBLE STARTLING ALLEGATIONS IN DIVORCE SUIT T OBE TRIED IN NEW YORK. Special Correspondence to The Press, NEW YORK, March 20.—Jas. P. ItcQuaide, another of Pittsburg's group of steel trust magnates, is having marital troubles which will Boon be aired at a trig] of a suit brought by his wife for separation ami alimony. McQutlde, a millionaire, is vice president of the National Powder company, a large stockholder in the Pressed Steel Car Wheel company ami a partner In the Douglas-Mo- Qualde company, which controls itbe automatic swltelies in use on PUrfaoe railroads. McQualde says that lie did not know that his wife was suing him until he read in tho newspapers that Mrs. Sarah S. McQualde had Hold Judge Tlurr In tbe supremo BOUrt of Brooklyn that her husband ■md beaten her nnd left her penni less. The millionaire and his wife Beparated six months ago. ■Me Qua Id o has declared his Inten tion of lighting the case. He denies that he ever struck his wife and charges that the trouble In his household was instituted by Mrs. land team thinks he has a star pitcher in Charles Moore, who play ed with Columbia university last year. He has speed, curves and everything. In addition to that he is a good hitter and an all around athlete. He will easily be the fast est man in the league upon the bases. He has an actual track rec ord of :10 1-5 for 100 yards, and he does it, too. That does not mean :12, it means : 10 1-5. ® ® ® If any of the San Francisco in- Delderi get the ball over the head of Sears it will be easy scoring the error. Sears looms up in the air after the fashion of old Dan Brou thers and Roger Conner, two of the most famous first basemen the base ball world has ever known. Sears is six feet one Inch tall and weighs nearly 200 pounds. It is also re ported that he is a hard hitter. ® ® ® The fight situation in Dos An geles is in a critical conditon at. the present time. There are two fac tions fighting for the right to pull off goes in that city. The city coun cil of Dos Angeles does not want the San Francisco promoters to in vade the Dos Angeles field. There is the whole thing in a nutshell. Some time ago the council of that, city passed an ordinance prohibit ing tights in any part of the city but the Eighth ward. This ordin ance was passed for the purpose of keeping the San Francisco promot ers out of Lod Angeles. The coun ell thought that after the wretched way the Noil-Tenny fight was han dled they did not want those pro moters In the city. The ordinance was etoed by the mayor, but will probably be passed over his veto. The Dos Angeles people are right when they object to having fight promoters run goes who do not even spend 5 to have the lighters examined before the match. Mathewson or Waddell are today. Croat crowds gathered to see him pitch, and with an awe that would be laughable now watched him as ho sent the ball on its wide sweep toward the batsman. Almost in variably the batters pulled away from the balls that seemed to be coming directly toward them and struck at tho ones that started toward the plate, but which curved far beyond their reach. Cummings had a standing offer that be could strike out any man on a team, and ho won a good many dollars from! incredulous players who doubted his powers the first time they fac ed him. Cnmtnings reigned su preme for a time and then other men began practicing the art of throwing the curve ball, with the result that soon nearly every club had one or two pitchers who could impart the mystic twist that sent the ball far out of its course, up setting the laws of gravitation.

He is the silent man of the ring. His right name is Noah Brusso and he comes from French Canadian parentage. There are probably many who will laugh at the pretensions of Burns ln calling himself the heavy- weight champion, but there were also many who thought that he hadn't even an outside chance of beating the Louisville boy when the match was made. A wonderful change has taken place in Burns in the past six months. Tbe last fight he had be fore the battle with Hart was with' Jack (Twin) Sullivan who defeated him in 20 rounds of fast fighting. Hums made 158 pounds at I! o'clock on the day of this battle and the weight weakened him to such an , extent that he was an easy mark .for the Boston man. Me came to the conclusion that Ihe was a fool to make weight for anyone as ho has been growing heavier and stronger in the past few months and now weighs 175 pounds, at his bent, This was his weight when he beat Hart. During the next few months Burns expects to put on at least 15 pounds and. when be next enters the ring, he will weigh in the neigh borhood of 100 pounds. He is short was penniless, McQu&ide said that be had Riven his wife the Nyack estate, real estate in this city that she had sold for $65,000, ami bad made a trust deed of his income from the National Cable & Con duit company, so th't his wife re ceived $533 a month, He claima his wife's extravagance cost him $700,00 ii a year to live.

His hips and shoul ders are hooked together in a build like that of Sailor Sharkey, but, ununlike the sailor, he is not mus i cle-bound. Burns has been fighting little more than five years. It was in Detroit that he first came into pro minence. He had been fighting for pitifully small purses and at tracted no particular attention until he met a boy named Ben O'Grady. Burns will regret that fight as long as he lives, because it resulted fa tally for O'Grady. In the third' round Burns landed a terrific punch on O'Grady's jaw and O'Grady nev er recovered. Burns, despite his> calling, is extremely sensitive and sympathetic, and felt the death of O'Grady keenly. Burns has engaged in 38 fights as professional, has never been knocked out and has lost but three decisions, one each to Mike Scbreck, Jack O'Brien ami Twin Jack Sullivan. Out of the ring, Burns is a most gentlemanly chap. He is quiet and retiring to a degree and never talks fight unless he is forced to. He has no bad habits and is saving money for a rainy day. Burns hopes Jack O'Brien will be his next opponent. SANDY'S HERO MEDAL IS FINE 00L0 COLLAR BRAVE DOG SAVED HIS MAS- I TER FROM DEATH IN AN AVALANCHE.

MEN AND THINGS Who will control the next coun cil? Have you not heard that ques tion asked many times in the last few weeks? What a world of in famy and disgrace is embodied ln that question. What an insinuation of an absense of rectitude in the' conduct of the servants of the peo ple. What right has any individual or corporation to control the city coun cil? None. They are sworn to be and should be servants of the peo ple. What interest is supposed to con trol the council now? The Wash ington Water Power company. The question is intended to ask, will that company continue its control or will the Traction company own the next legislative body of this city? These questions grow out of the granting of rights on the city's streets without a recompense to the city. When the city council puts a reasonable price upon fran chises, these slurs rpon the honesty of that body will cease. Mr. Strahorn has denied the pur chase of the Spokane-Columbia River Railroad. The editor of this column fears Mr. Strahorn is in dulging in a fiction. However, since it is known to us that such a denial at this time is good business policy we have no fault to find with Mr. Strahorn. However, the truth will soon out. Again Jas. J. Hill has shown his partiality for his first love, the Great Northern railroad. He has allowed the Booster club of Spo kane to work in and about the G. N. depot and has refused them the privilege on the depot grounds of the Northern Pacific. It does not take a far seeing man to percieve In Mr. Hill's every act a desire to switch business from the older road to the younger. This new Hill move is intended to create a local preju dice against the N. P. and also per mits of every attention being shown tourists on the Great Northern and the consequent favoring of that route by them. Hill is surely the "foxy Grandpa." A well known politician was giv ing a bkcf advice a few days ago to a seeker for a franchise from the city fathers for a public utility in Spokane. "You will have less trou ble in a few weeks." said the poli tician, "votes cut be secured much more rapidly and at a much lower price as the days draw nigh when some of our council men are to be retired to private life." The state ment was made, undoubtedly, half in jest. But there have been rum ors lately of a resumption of free and easy ways about the city hall and it behooves the public to keep G B. BURHAIMS TESTIFIES AF TER FOUR YEARS. G. 11. Hurhans of Carlisle Cen ter, N. V., writes: "About four years ago I wrote you stating that I had been entirely cured of a se severe kidney trouble by taking less than two bottles of Foley's Kidney Cure. It entirely stopped tho brick dust sediment, and pain and symptoms of kidney disease disappeared. 1 am glad to say that 1 have never had a return of auy of those symptoms during the four years that have elapsed and I am evidently cured to stay cured, and heartily recommend Foley's Kid ney Cure to any one suffering from kidney or bladder trouble."

By A Plain Spoken Citizen It m hard to see how an athletic club can maintain its amatuer standing and conduct professional prize fights. However, this seems to be possible in the northwest ana our local club will undoubtedly oc cupy this anomalous position as long as it is permitted to do so. It will hold this position because it is backed by public sentiment —not alone among members, but at large in the city. But since the club de sires to hold its place among repu table amatuer clubs and still con duct prize lights, it should see to It that the fair name of the club is protected in everw way possible from such lamentable a occurance as resulted from the recent Neil- Tenny fight in Frisco. Should death come to any participant in a fight at the Spokane Amatuer Athletic Club, it might tndanger the very existence of that institution. We are proud of our city. We boast of its beautiful homes. Elbert Hubbard calls It the most artistic city for its size in the world. It is essentially an American city and a city of home owners and home lov ers. But is the old adage that ex tremes meet, going to be proven true right here in beautiful Spo kane. Is it a fact, as is claimed by charity workers, and those whose business it is to visit such places, that here where we boast of all that Is beautiful in home life we also have some of the most detest ible, filthy, slum-like lodging houses to be found in any city in the coun try? While we are cleaning up and brightening up the city's exterior, let us not forget the unsightly, un sanitary interiors. The former pleases our artistic sense, but the latter affects our very life.
