"2.—Terry McGovern, who last nig*ht at Tattersall'a won the clear title to the featherweight champion ship of the world by knocking out Eddie Santry In the fifth round of a six-ronud bout, said in an Interview: "Santry gave me a better fight for two rounds than Dixon did and I must give him all the credit in the world for his showing. Dixon faced me longer, and I think was able to stand the pace longer. I must say Santry had me a trtfla worried in the second round. After that I got the range and it was only a mat. tor of time." Eddie Santry said: "I thought I was fighting at my best when I was knocked out. The awful paco McGovern sets Is killing to any man and I honestly think this little fellow can whip most of those clever lightweights we hear so much about. McGovern is the featherweight champion all right. He is the greatest little fighter th» world ha 3 ever known. I am simply un lucky to be in the same class with him." George Siler, the referee, said: "I counted Santry out. When I reached the count of ten, I said: 'Ten and out, Eddie; you lose.' He was then on his hands and knees, and did not have a chance to get up. My move in getting between the men and waving McGovern off appears to have been taken as in dicating that I stopped the fight. That is not the case and those who bet that Santry would be knocked out win. It was as fast a fight as I ever saw." RACING MATINEE. Free-for-All Pace Draws Two Min neapolis Horses. The racing matinee of the Capital City Driving club, at Como this afternoon, will have an additional interest from the fact that Queen Lil and O'Grady, two Min neapolis horses, have been entered In the free for all pace.

BALL CLUBS ANNOUNCES COM PLETE ORGANIZATION TWO CITIES AEE TO SETTLE Providence Will Pat Up a Forfeit So Soon us Philadelphia Does Like wise— Committee Is Left in Phila delphia to Complete the Deal— President Young Says the Name ('niinot Be Vfted. PHILADELPHIA. B'eb. 2.-The meeting of the American Association of Baseball Clubs came to an end today, and the or ganization may bo said to be a fact. Six cities—Boston, Baltimore, Milwaukee, De troit, Chicago and St. Louis have signed the agreement, each furnishing: a $1,200 bond. Providence and Philadelphia have not yet signed, but the former haa pledged itself to furnish . the bond as soon as this city registers. Before adjourning finally the delegates appointed a committee consisting of H. D. Quin, Milwaukee; Thomas McCarthy, Boston, and J. J. McGraw, Baltimore, to remain here and arrange the Philadelphia end of the circuit. The next meeting will be held In Chi. cago, on Feb. 12. After the meeting McGraw announced that there was plenty of money forth-> coming to support a club In this city. The committee of three has been given full power to select the backers for thla city, but it is not likely th^t they will have any report to make before meeting in Chicago. The personality of backers under consideration is shrouded in mys tery at present, McGraw stating that he had not the authority to publish their names. McGraw said he could not tell how long the committee would remain here. OUTLOOK RATHER GLOOMY. If Philadelphia, through lack ot proper financial backing, should be compelled to remain out of tha circuit, it may mean the abandonment of the association idea for the coming season, at least. Some disappointment Is felt among the promoters of the organization, In conse quence of the failure to establish a club in New York, and Baltimore might hold out should Philadelphia not enter the as sociation. With two of the big cities in the East out the chances of success of the new organization, it is feared, would be remote. In a talk today Manager John McGraw, of Baltimore, said: ''To me Baltimore is of more consider ation than a franchise in any league or association. I am heart and soul In the association movement, and have taken large chances for It If everything goes well we will play an association team there, if not we will play a league team. If we have neither I will stay in Balti more and attend to my business." UNCLE NICK SAYS NO. WASHINGTON. Feb. 2.—President N. E. Young furnishes the following state, rac-nt: "The New American association, whicii will be operated the coming season In harmony with the National league and the organization under the protection ot the national agreement, has no connec tion with the so-called association re ported to be making an attempt to or ganise In Philadelphia. The National league and American Association of Pro fessional Baseball Clubs own and are in porsession of the title "American Asso ciation," and such titlo cannot be adopted or used without their permission. The association which has been organized has made proper application for the right to assume the name when relinquished by the present National league and Ameri~ can association." PROVIDENCE IS OUT. PROVIDENCE, R. 1.. Feb. 2.—The Providence club will not be identified with the American association which has been in session at Philadelphia. At the meeting of the directors, today, it was decided to give no further consideration to the association's plan, it having failed to show sufficient stability to warrant this city investing in it.

The Minneapolis Y. M. C. A. basket ball team defeated the team from Macalester college in a hotly contested game at the V M C. A. gymnasium in Minneapolis last night. The final score stood 3 to 2. The teams were very evenly matched and it was only by the fastest kind of ball that either side was able to score. The Macalesters had a strong team and they kept Minneapolis busy throughout the game. The Y. M. C. A. team by their excellent team work and the remarkable good work on the part of McDermid and McMullen pulled out a victory in the sec ond half from what seemed certain defeat. McDermid shot the only goal from the field and as it proved it won the game for the Y. M. C. A. Polo at Racine. - RACINE, Wis., Feb. 2.—Tonight's polo game between Muncie, Ind., and Racine teams was played without either side scoring. The third game will be played tomorrow night.

N.r, RULING OF FILIPINOS PLANS FOR GOVERNMENT OF THE ISLANDS ARE SUBMITTED BY TUB COMMISSION AMERICA MUST HOLD REINS That Is the Contention of the Men Who Were Sent to the Philippine* by President Mclvinley to Report Upon the Capability of the Fil ipino* tor S«-lf-Gov«»riimesit—An other Section of Report to Follow, WASHINGTON, Feb./2.4-ihe president today transmitted to eongijess the first volume of the report •©£ the Philippine commission. It Is a volume"'of 264 page:?, including the appendix/ 1 anQ ia signed by Prof. Schurman, Admital jbewey, Col. Denby and Prof. Worcester. The prin cipal subject dealt with is < the plan ol government proposed by the commission, which includes a discussion of the Span ish government existing prior to the war, the various Teforms desired by the Fili pinos and the constitution proposed by them, together with thw conclusions and plans suggested by the commission. The report also covers nrfany other matters connected with the social administration of the islands, racial characteristics, educational, secular and religious orders, the Chinese in the islands, public health, currency, etc., as well as* the conditions and needs of the United States in the Philippines, from a naval and maritime standpoint. The second volume of the report, which will not be ready for several weeks, will contain a detailed description of the cli mate and natural resources of the island The chief interest in the report naturally centers In the plan of government pro nosed by the commission. The commission announces itself un< qualinedly In favor of a government of the Filipinos analogous to that of a ter ritory of the United States, with a gov% ernor appointed by the president. They say It Is desirable that the inhabitants of the archipelago should enjoy a large measure of home rule in local affairs, their towns to enjoy substantially the rights and privileges of towns In a ter* ritory. LARGE LIBERTIES. From the outset, however, the commis sion deems it desirable- to extend to the Filipinos larger liberties of self' government than Jefferson approved ot for the inhabitants of Louisiana, assum ing that in the Sulu archipelago and such other portions of the islands as are oc« cupied by tribes of Indians, the govern ment would be conducted through the agency of their sultans *or chiefs. The commission. believes that the people ot the Islands should be allowed to elect, at least, members of the lower branch of the territorial legislature, and that part of the upper branch, at least, should bs appointed by the president. With such safeguards in our hands, and a veto power by the governor general, including the right to suspend the law for a year, even after its passage by a vote of two thirds of the legislature over his veto, this plan of government, which is on the line of the constitution prepared for the commission by those Filipinos who sought to adjust the claims of the insurgent leaders to the rights of American sov ereignty, would probably be adequate tot the purpose of good government. This la especially true, the commission says, since congress may and should retain the right to veto the territorial legis lation. Nearly all the officers will, under this form of government, be filied by Filipi nos themselves, and the merit system must be adopted and lived up to. The patronage, or spoils system, the commis sion says, would prove fatal to good gov ernment in the Philippines. The com mission suggests that a civil service board, to ascertain by competitive ex amination of a practical character the qualifications of Filipinos seeking office, should be instituted, and there should bo promotions for merit and efficiency dur ing tenure of office. AMERICAN OFFICIALS. The small number of American offi cials needed would include in the first group, governor, secretary, attorney gen eral, certain judges and other officers of the territorial government, and in the sec ond group heads of postal, customs and other departments. These officers of the first group should be appointed by the president, and of the second group trans ferred from the home service. In neither case should there.be examination. The commission cites the case of Brit ish India, with an area of 1,500,000 square miles, and a population of 300,000,000, where the executive and Judicial work is performed by 1,000 British officials, to .show that only a small number of Amer icans would be needed as the directing brain of the civil government. The commission, while not underrating the difficulty of governing the Philippines, is inclined to believe the task easier than generally supposed. The Filipinos, they say, are of unusual promising traits, possessing admirable domestic virtues and being naturally peaceful, docile and obedient to constituted authority. The Tagals. though forming a minority, are far more numerous than: generally sup posed, and the commission pays a tribute to their high range of possibilities. The Filipinos should be upheld in es tablishing and maintaining civil govern ment throughout the archipelago. PROPOSED PLAN. In connection with the subject the com mission reaches the following conclusion: 1. The United States cannot withdraw from the Philippines. We are there and duty bids us remain. There is no escape from our duty to the Philippines and to mankind for the government of the archi pelago and the amelioration of the condi tion of its inhabitants. 2. The Filipinos are wholly unprepared for independence, and: If independence were_given them they could not maintain It. (Under the third head is Included a copy of Admiral Dewey's letter to Senator Lodge which was read :in the senate the other day denying Aguinaldo's claim that he was promised Independence.) 4. There being no Philippine nation, but or.ly a collection of different peoples, there Is no general public opinion in the archipelago, but the men of property and education, who alone interest themselves in public affairs in general, recognize as indispensable American authority, guid ance and protection. 5. Congress should at the earliest prac ticable time provide for the Philippines the form of government here described, or another equally liberal and beneficent. 6. Pending any action on the part of congress, the commission recommends that the president put in- operation this scheme 'of popular go-vernment in such parts of the archipelago as are at peace. 7. So far aa the finances of the Philip pines permit, public education should be promptly established, and when estab lished made free to all. S. The greatest care should be taken In the selection of officers for administra tion. They should be men of the highest character, and partisan politics should be entirely separated from the government of the Philippines. The commission are unable to find any means of asslmiliating the tariff of the Philippines with that of the United States, saying the differences are funda mental and irreconcilable, and so long a3 the existing chasm remains between the economic and social pondjtlons of the Philippines and those of *ho:: United States so long it remains impracticable to iden tify the tariff. The e&ftriWssion recom mend that, for the pre^eriij at least, no effort be made to adjusftlle tariff to our basis. n-i rr Mine WageHvjnfxed. INDIANAPOLIS.

Col. Bryan Immediately answered: "I sent a telegram, but those were not the words." "Well, will you tell me what It said?" continued Holden. "No. I will not," replied Mr. Bryan, "but you can see the telegram If you will send to the proper place." "Then you stand unmasked, and I de nounce you," Instantly exclaimed the tlery questioner, "but as I try to be an honest man, and a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ, I forgive you for your sins."
