MONDAY, APRIL 23, iws.
Ring fana aH over the state are taking great Interest In the Thomp son-Sealer flght which la scheduled at the 8. A. A. C. May 4. Although the majority of i .ng experts believe Thompson will win on his previous showings here thore are many oth ers who claim that it would not bo sui prising if Scale r would trot home with the long end of the mon ey. More than once the dope on a flght has been wrong. There is only one dope on this flght, as dope goes, and that Is Thompson, but Sealer, as the long shot, is just as likely to win. The Kid will enter the ring with the firm determina tion of putting up a great fight, win If possible, but make a fight of it at any rate. He always does flght for all there Is in It. Thompson has had some trouble In getting a place to train. The old Pastime and Athletic club is a thing of the past, insofar as a "home" is concerned. The owners wanted $7(1 a month for rent, and the Incorporators could not see ■where the money was returning to them at this stage of the game, particularly as there is no place in town where a flght may be pulled off by them. Sealer has now secured some comfortable quarters across Medi cal lake from the foolish house, but It is not thought ho is close enough to the asylum to worry his training It is an excellent place to bathe and work. Lea Miners says: "I don't intend to have the Kid do very much road work, but will FANS ENTHUSE AT CITY LEAGUE GAMES It was two whistles for the Jones & Dilllnghanis yesterday when the Northern Pacific ball tofsors hung It onto them by a score of 11 to 10. Fully 1200 people visited the game and shouted their lungs out at the railroaders and painters. It is strange how familiar with technical terms a baseball fan is. Yesterday nt times one would think they wero all railroad men and at others times they showed a remarkable knowl edge of the painting business and gave all kinds of advice about put ty. For the second game, when the S. A. A. C, played the Warwieks, the fans gave out somo red hot dope on horso racing for the benefit of the Warwieks and Intermingled a low remarks about horizontal bars, medicine balls, weight machines, etc., for the benefit of I lie athletes. The S. A. A. C. defeated the War wieks by a score of 9 to :!. A chap named De I'ati was the whole op erating department with the rail roaders. Ho did the Blab work, and for a time it looked as though lie had signaled "out of town" for the painters before they com menced playing. NORTHWEST LEAGUE MAY BE REVIVED It seems possible now that both Seattle and Portland may be in the Northwest league. President Lu cas is en route there and when he gets hold of the proper strings ' something definite may lie announc ed which will prove a great Joy to the heart of tho baseball fan who wants tho old Northwest circuit back.

FIGHTERS CORNER^ rather keep him built up. It Is hitting power and cleverness which he will need in this flght and I don't want to sap his vitality with long, hard weight reducing runs through the country. It will be a case of get fast and hard." Sealer was in town Saturday night and enjoyed the Mahara min strels. "Indian Joe" Gregg, as fast as the most of them are, will he Seal er's chief trainer. Jack Kerns will also assist. Rube Ferns, the welterweight, is expected here soon. He wants a crack at Honey Mellody and don't seem able to make connections in the east. Frang Blair, manager of tho Col lins theater of Rosslani, B. C, ar rived last night looking for boxers. He says he can get a $1000 house if Parker and Indian Joe Gregg will fight fhere. He also announces that there is a local chap,one Lang ley, who Is fast coming to the front and soon will be able to make a good showing against some of the best of them. He is thinking of matching Sealer with him. There is a possibility of Harrison and some good man getting together for the next attraction at the Col lins. Blair said: "Although the Fredoricks-Greeg flght did not draw so much money, it was prin cipally on account of the fact that the Indian did not get there in time to train and advertise himself." BASEBALL NOTES At Moscow, Idaho, yesterday, the Butte team defeated the univer sity by a score of 10 to 2. Evident ly the Butte team is sticking some.

Tlie Question arises as to whether Alexander's machine will bo classed as a bicycle or auto mobile. The ordinance limits tho speed of n bicycle over crossings to one mile in five minutes, while an automobile must go rlower yet. Mr. Alexander faces another pre dicament—he pays a bicycle license and may have to pay an auto li cense. PICHPOCHES ARE PLENTIFUL Chief Waller gave his men strict orders this morning io keep a sharp lookout for members of the gang of plckpockots which is gathering in the city. All the large O'tlei are Infested about this time of the year by these light fingered gents who congregate about tho time public; amusements commence.

"Ship nlioy-oy-oy!" sung out Ole Larson, a Norwegian sailor as he mande port against a brick wall yesterday. There was no answer ing hail and ho commenced to raise a disturbance with himself. He had a voice like a megaphone, any way, and Sergeant Sullivan and Of ficer Miles tacked in the direction of the sound. Ole was pinched. He insisted that the offices listen to some choice Norwegian cusswords, and didn't want to be taken to jail. It was necessary to shanghai him. E. H. Dean, capitalist, is in the city strong house again, all for his levo of the Scotch highball. De tect ivo Alexander Macdonald found him last night on a vacant lot on Front avenue so drunk that he could not take care of himself. As usual, Dean had a lot of money on his person.

Milwaukee, is pulling itself to gether after her election surprise— the triumph of a "kid," Sherburn M. Becker, 29, over the four time mayor. David Rose. The betting night before the election was 4 to 1 against Becker, and his candidacy had been regarded as a Joke and generally belittled by the case hardened politicians of the city. He was opposed by every element usu ally aligned against good govern ment. Becker's victory was only anoth er of those reform waves which havo become so evident in Ameri can municipalities in the last six months. It was won on a clear-cut issue of honesty In public office. Tho party aspect was lost In the oasKfalgn. Young Becker not only dared cut loose from partisan is sues, but from the two old factions of tho republican party, although be is a republican. Ho was a re freshing innovation, and that won out. A testimonial to the confi dence felt In him is thai the most radical vote, the soclall-t, was cut down, although ho is from what is known as tho silk stocking element, and the utmost strerfs was laid upon that by tho opposition. lit? is the son of a banker, a Yale college man. and Is at the head of a cor poration, a tobacco factory.

With Kubellk was his three violins, his wife, his Hindoo servants his man ager and a dozen other musicians and singers. Kubelik whlled away tho hours yesterday morning practicing. Tho strains from his priceless Stradi varlus floated through tho open window of the car and mingled with the clamor of the N. P. yards. May hap the music may have inspired Louis Hill and Ben Campbell, who discussed railway matters in an ad joining car, or solaced a section gang at work near by.

His opponent -Mayor Rose called him a "brat" from the platform, and he was at THE SPOKEN* PRESS. showing. His first inqu'ry was con cerning the latest from San Fran eispr* and the next was whether Spokane was a musical town. "I have my hands insured for $100,000," said Kubelik. "I am to be paid this if I lose a finger or suffer any injury that makes me unable to play the violin." The hands are slender, soft ones, •the nails showing traces of the in cessant picking which Kubelik sub jects them to. HIS WIFE IS SAFE Otis Wing, the well known court reporter, received a telegram today from Mrs. W r ing, who is in San Francisco, stating that she was safe in Oakland, and wished to return home. Mrs. Wing has been resid ing in San Francisco that her little son, who is deaf and dumb, could havo educational advantages not to bo had in this city.

Although not yet Installed, the bosses already have found they can not control him. The people of tho state are demanding that he run for governor, but Becker says, "wait." An Awakening Aat Hand.—Becker. There are many things I consider tho need of the hour In promoting the public welfare in American ci ties. Judging from the movements fot reform in some of our largost municipalities. I take it that thoro has been too little honesty in pub tic Office, The people, as a rule, have been to blame, for it has al ways been in their powe • to select good men. Hut there has been an awakening all pver the land, and the people, regardless of party affiliations, seem to have arisen in their might, and ast off many of the barnacles that have been fastened upon them. I believe that generally there has been too much politics cud too lit tle business in our municipalities. The people have voted the ticket, uo matter of what it was composed. Vow, they seem to reallzo that men are of more importance than par ties; still I do not moan by this to say that parties are no! necessary or of groat good and large advan tage to the people. S. If.

The soloists were Bertha Hollway, so prano; Mary Strang, contralto, and Dean Smith, tenor; R. A. Heritage, baritone. The chorus was excellent. KUBELIK TONIGHT Kubelik, the world renowned vio lin virtuose, whose concerts throughout his entire American tour have set the musical world wild with enthusiasm, will be at the Spokane theater tonight, when he will present the finest program in violin compositions that has ever been given in this city. Too much can not be said of his ability as a thorough musician and a master of astounding technical difficulties. The Spokane engagement should draw a packed house as it will be a chance of a lifetime to many. THE HEIR TO THE HOORAH One of the humorous situations in "The Heir to the Hoorah" which comes to the Spokane Tuesday and Wednesday nights is comprised in a long drawn practical joke put up on Bud Young by Joe and Dave Lacy. The practical Joke takes the form of a certain "maiden aunt," concerning whom In connection with Mr. Young's matrimonial fu ture they converse with such fre quency, that poor Bud comes to a state of mind wherein as he puts it, every time he has a nightmare the "maiden aunt" is "it." The fun comes when the maiden aunt in question turns out to be a remark ably pretty girl named Madge Cas ey just graduated from Vassar. Bud sees her and hears her name. "Say, Madge sounds pretty good to me," he drawls, and upon being pre sented to Miss Casey, cheerfully observes, "say, you have got the rest of them beat the length of the Santa Fe Trail." TWO MATINEES EACH WEEK. In addition to performances every evening two matinees will be given each week at the new Columbia theater, which will be formally opened to the public on May 1. Manager Cordray has al ready secured the rights to produce a number of the best plays to be seen on the stage today, and the bill at the new theater will be changed weekly. "A FRIEND OF THE FAMILY." A farcical comedy entitled "A Friend of the Family" was present ed by Miss Jessie Shirley at the Auditorium last night. The play was well received by the large au dience. The staging of the play is worthy of comment. George D. McQuarrie, the favorite, was seen to advantage as Barltye Swift, a re tired merchant, and Miss Shirley gave a good portrayal of the char acter of Mrs. Esmond Miller. Other members of the cast gave the usual satisfaction.

There are 18 people in the com pany, only 14, however, being used in the opening play. AT THE WASHINGTON. Probably the most novel musical act ever seen in this city Is that of the Ciemenso brothers, who ap pear at the Washington theater this week. Their musical meal, when they sit down to a table of good things and make all kinds of music, made a hit last evening. Wm. Schuster had to respond three times before tho audience would allow him to leave the stage. The Dowlan and Ainsworth com pany have a playlet that might be vastly improved both in composi tion and acting, this being probably the weakest number on the bill. Tom Ripley, minstrel comedian, is clever, as are also the Millio broth ers, gymnasts and Roman ring artists. SPOKANE THEATER Joseph Petrich, Mar. Tel. M. 344. TONIGHT.
