KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 2.—President Manning, of the Kansas City baseball team, has returned from his Chicago trip. When shown the weird story to the ef fect that at a secret meeting it had been deelcled to declare war on- the National league a look of amazemenc spread over his countenance. "Well, If that's what we did in Chicago yesterday," he said, with a start, "I must have been walking in my sleep. Why, I saw Johnson and Comlskey only a few minutes, and such an idea as declaring WBJ* on the National league was never broached.' My business In Chicago was private and does not concern any one but myself, but I can assure you it had_noth ing to do with a threatened invasion of the big league cities by our organization. "The circuit as made up at this mythi cal meeting, T see, does not include Kan sas City. This is proof positive that I would have nothing to do with it. Kan sas City is a good enough town for me, and I have no intention of transferring my franchise if I can help it. "The minor organization could not hope to gain anything by breaking away from the national agreement and invading the big league cities. The national league magnates would have all the better of the fight that would ensue, for they have the money and the players. They could bet ter afford to pay the salaries demanded by the baseball stars, and the American league trams would necessarily be made up of sf-nnd-raters, who would not draw when opposed to the first-class clubs of the major organization." CHICAGO. Jan. 2.—President Hart, of the Chicago Baseball club, today, In dis cussing thp .jviestion of the American league, placing, a club in Chicago and the bteaßins of the national agreement, 6 ah]: "If tlir break-up of the national agree ment must come, let it come in a hurry. It cannot happen too soon so far as I am concerned. Under the present low condition of baseball the v.-ar would help considerably to clear up the baseball at mosphere and let us know where we are standing. On the whole, it would be a good tiling if the national agreement was broken." BuaUet Bell. FON'P DU L,AC, Wis., Jan. 2.—Second basket ball game: ComDany E 27, Yale 6. SUIT ALL MANKIND.

Minnesota LITTLE HEN ARE NEXT TERRY M'GOVERJT AND GEORGE DIXON TO MEET JAN UARY B M'GOVEKN IS THE FAVORITE One Blk Wager Laid at Evens Tlint McGovern Will Knock Oat Dixon in Ten Hounds — O'llonrke Took the Dixon Kml—Kid McCoy Mar Retire From the Rlnff After Two More Battles. NEW YORK, Jan. 2.—Terry McGovern, the world's bantam-weight champion, is now comfortably ensconced In training quarters at Fleetwood. He Is well under way with his preparation for the fight next week with George Dixon for the title so well defended by the little col ored fighter for such a long time. Terry will not need great preparation for the fight. His work while on the road with his burlesque company was severe enough to keep him in great condition- He trained steadily while on the road and now particular attention will be paid to Mc-Govern's wind, so that he will be able to stand long gruelling mix-ups with the colored man. With McGovern are Sam Harris, Terry Lee, his cousin, and Charley Mayhcod. The party will remain complete until ready to go to the ring side a week from tomorrow. Previous to leaving town McGovern stepped on the scales and tipped the beam at 324 pounds. He is called upon to re duce six pounds, as he weighs in with Dixon at 118. As McGovern was as hard as nails some folks who were present expressed the opinion that he would hava a hard job to make the necessary weight. Charley Mayhood, who has trained Mc- Govern from the time Teddy bepan to fight, answered these critics with the statement thr.t the Brooklyn boy would have no difficulty in fetching 31S. More than that, McGovern had plenty of time to touch 114 if that reduction were neces sary. As Mayhood knows all McGovern'a weaknesses—if Ted has any—the train er's word is worth having. M'GOVERN STRONG FAVORITE. McGovern is the favorite in the betting. A hundred to sixty lias been offered. The old time betters cannot see where those odds come in and are, on general prin ciples, taking the short end on the ex perienced Dixon, whose equal, they pay, McGovern has never met. The second big bet that has been so far made on the coming battle was recorded at the Delavaii hotel. A well known sporting man, who asked that his name be withheld, giving good reasons why, walked into the hctel and offered to bat $500 even that McGovern would knock out Dixon in ten rounds Tom O'Rourke, who happened to be present at the time, said: "I will just make that bet with you," ond In a minute both the sporting man and O Rourke had pulled out $500 and the bet was quickiy made. Aleck Brown, who happened to stroll in just after the McGovern admirer bad left the hotel, when told of the bet turned to Joe Macias, O'Rourke's secretary, and said he would like to bet $500 the same way if Maoias could get the mor.ey covered by the sporting man. Brown was too late, however, as the sport had already said in the presence of several sporting meu that he only wanted to make this one bet so as to have some interest in the fight. M'COY MAY RETIRE. Kid McCoy, after his battle with Peter Maher, said: "I am glad the fight terminated as It ditl and that I won, because it wHI con vince my detractors that I can hit some. Five weeks ago today I was very ill. Some people thought I was shamming, but it was the honest truth. I must give Billy Muldoon great credit for the man ner in which he assisted to build me up. The way I felt to day I think I could have beaten any one of my weight and of more pounds, too. I was as strong as a bull, and I had the speed with me aJso. I must admit that I felt quite nervous all along regarding my chances. To go against a man who can hit such a hard blow as Maher has the reputation of de livering I thought was a task in itself, and it Is no falsehood when I say that my plan was to be very careful. I got more confidence after the first round, when I saw that Maher was susceptible to my feints. I expected that he would sail in like a demon, as I was told he would, from the first. His tactics puzzled me considerably, and that is why I bided my time for a blow which would do the trick decisively. In the fourth I was a bit tired, but at no stage of the battle was I a bit groggy. Maher did not get in a good knock which either feazed or even made me dizzy." "What are your plans now?" asked the reporter. McCoy, with some hesitation, said: "After this winter 1 will retire. I don't care to deprive myself of the luxuries of life, because a man in my profession, to make a success, must always remain In training. It gets monotonous at times, and I often long to quit. I still think I can beat Bob Fitzsimmons, Tom Sharkey or any other heavyweight breathing, and would like to get a crack at either of the fighters mentioned before I retire. I am. now matched to meet Joe Choynski at the Broadway Athletic club on Jan. 12, and expect to face Sharkey a month later at the same club." McCoy, in conclusion, said that after he leaves the fighting game he will start a "swell" school of physical culture on Broadway In partnership with Muldoon. The Kid added that it would be the fin est institution of its kind in the country. MAHER DISCONSOLATE. Peter Maher took his defeat sorrowful ly. When the affair was over he, in com pany with his seconds and trainers, pro ceeded to "Spike" Sullivan's cottage at Sheepshead bay. The party wa3 very much oast down over the reverse, and Maher 1 s voice was husky at times. "Pittsburg Phil," who accompanied Ma her, and who is reported as having lost over $5,000 on Peter's defeat, did his best to console Maher, but without avail. "I was winning nicely," said Maher slowly, "when I got that punch which put me out. I was not unconscious. The blow caught me on the Adam's apple near my right jaw, and it seemed to stop my wind and render me helpless. I tried to get up, but it was useless. I was tem porarily paralyzed from my neck down. I heard the referee count off the seconds, and, -when it was too late, I realized that I had lost. McCoy is a shifty, clever fel low. But I'm sure and know I can whip him. I will agree to a fight within six weeks, and I bet the loser's end of the purse that I will beat him Inside of fifteen rounds. I have no excuses to offer. I was in grand shape and thought he would be easy. Still, I did not let my confi dence get the better of my judgment. Ha puzzled me a trifle in the first round, but after that I had him sized up and was fighting him accordingly. The blow which really did the most damage was the left hand hook which I received in the break away In the fifth round, just before I was knocked out. Well, it Is all over now, and all I can say Is that I am in hard luck. My baby died on Christmas day, my wife is ill and I lost today. It is pret ty hard on me, but I must take things as they come."

NEW YORK, Jan. 2.—The forty-seventh day of the trial of Roland B. Molineux, for the murder of Mrs. Katherine J- Adams, opened with Harry S. Corni3h again on the stand. The cross-examina- tion of. Cornish by Attorney Weeks was the feature of the day's proceedings. Mr. Weeks commenced the cross-examination of Cornish by inquiring about the -hours of his return from the Knickerbocker Athletic club on the night of Dec. 27, IS9B. Cornish acknowledged that he was mistaken in previous testimony as to the hour. The lines of cross-questioning were soon shifted, Mr. Weeks apparently at- tempting to show that Mr. Cornish, after twenty years of caring for athletes, ought to know the taste of bromo seltzer. The witness was next compelled to run a gauntlet of questions regarding his re lations with the various members of the household of Mrs. Adams. Cornish testi fied that he could not remember who first told him that Mrs. Rogers, the daughter ~.^jß|S?J A Non-intoxicating -JZs&mi-:: Mat Extract that is "tfljpHjwra especially Recom j^j^py***^ mended for Weak Nerves, Indigestion and Insomnia.

Tel. 1414 of Mrs. Adams, had separated from her husband. Cornish testified that he went to Chicago 1n'1893, and that his wife ob tained a divorce fropviim in March, 1897. Under a severe cross-examination he ad mitted that he knew a Mrs. Small, that she had died in 18D4, that her real name was Mrs. Patterson, '■ that he had sent the woman to a hospital before she died and that he had paid the expenses In curred In connection! with her burial. Cor-, nlsh was apparently irritated by the searching questions asked by the attorney for the defense, and finally retorted: "You ought to know all about it. The physician told your detectives all about it.- ; -.nip to<:hicago. Mr. Weeks paused a .moment and then asked Cornish if he haicl gone to Chicago to find out about whjjit-.,the detectives had done. Cornish hesitated and finally ac knowledged going to Chicago and making inquiries. Mr. Weeks then compelled the witness to go over the story of his own illness on the morning of the death of Mrs. Adams again. He was closely questioned con cerning his visit to the office of Mr. Yocum, whom Cornish styled his "best friend." Pie was asked as to the route that he took in going from Yocum's of fice up town on Dec. 23. This line of questioning was significant, as it develop ed the fact that Cornish passed the gen eral postofflce and he had thus been given the opportunity of mailing the poison package himself. Cornish never flinched, but acknowledged discrepancies concern ing the time of the receipt of the bromo seltzer, also error 3ln his statements to tha newspapers as to the manner in which he was dressed at the Adams apartments on the morning of the murder. Cornish also acknowledged that at one time he thought Felix J. Gallagher wrote the Harpster letter. When interrogated regarding certain statements given out to the reporters Cornish said that he had searched for manifold copies and notes at the clubhouse, but that tney had been stolen. He denied making an appoint ment with a representative of the New York Journal, and offering to sell for $1,000 a story as to who sent the poison, but he acknowledged a meeting for the purpose of ascertaining who first gave Molineux's name (to,, the Journal. Mr. Weeks succeeded in getting the witness to acknowj^dge, that, in 1897, he wore a white alptne fiat with a black band, but he denied wearing a hat of this character during 1898- IMPORT ANCE.pF .TESTIMONY. These questions were regarded signifi cant, chiefly because of the fact that a person wearing a hat .of this description Is known to have rertted private letter boxes and receiv&l letters which have figured in this cajs'4. '' Cornish testified ; tfrit v the connection be tween the poison package address and the handwriting of Molineux was first men tioned by John B. Aidams. He denied purchasing works'''bn "chemistry In De cember. 189 S. Assistant District Attorney Osborne again took Cornish in hand, and as*ed him whether he had ever heard Mr. Car valho, the handwriting expert, say that Cornish could not have written the poison package address. Cornish said that he could not remember. When Cornish said that the poison box had been tied with a string, Juror Edgar remarked that it must have been trans ported as open matter. Mr. Osborne thanked the juror for the suggestion and added that he would en deavor to follow It up. Juror Billings asked the witness wheth er he had ever had his desk broken open prior to the time that he had It opened forcibly to get the bottle and holder and remove it from the club to the Adam 3 fiat, and the witness replied in the af firmative. After the attorneys for the prosecution and the defense, Recorder Goff and the juror 3 had questioned Cornish, Harry A. King, a broker on the Consolidated ex change, was called to the stand. Mr. King testified that Cornish showed him the Christmas present, which he had been sent by a friend, that he went to the water cooler. Intending to take a dose of the brorao seltzer, that he found no water in the cooler and gave up the attempt. He identified the poison bottle and the bottleholder as those that he had seen at that time. .ae*. I*, A. \V. Good Reads Work.
