MET AND ORGANIZED NEW AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF BASEBALL CLUBS IS NOW READY FOR BUSINESS ONE CLUB YET LACKING Said There Will Be No Difficulty Ex perienced in Filling in the Gai»— A. C. An»on IS' Elected to the Presitlemey—Veteran Is Pleased With the Prospects of the Xew Organization—No Reserve Clause. CHICAGO, Feb. 13.—At a stormy ses sion at the Great Northern hotel the new American Association of Baseball ;lubs was organized with seven clubs. John McGraw and Phil Peterson, of Bal timore, were appointed as a committee to secure the eighth city. As the circuit now stands it includes, in the West, Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Louis and Louis ville; in the East, Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore. It was the expectation of those pres ent today that Washington would com plete the eight-club circuit. The projectors of the organization pro* ceeded immediately with the work of making;* a constitution and adopting by laws, but announced that they would not be completed for a day or two. The or ganization was perfected after a forenoon spent in what seemed, even to McGraw, useless debate. He declared that unless he was speedily shown that there were enough club 3 with good backing to complete an eight-club circuit he would drop the whole matter. The absence of McCarthy, of Boston, was a stumbling block. Nothing could be done without him, it was said. The meeting at this time seemed likely to break up without any result, when Re gar, of Philadelphia, burst Into the room with a telegram In his hand. It was signed by McCarthy and appointed the Philadelphian proxy for Boston. With seven clubs represented, the pro moters of the new association got down to business. Capt. Anson, without showing his hand, assured the new magnates that his backing for a rival to the National league in Chicago was adequate. Al Bpink announced that he had eight play ers signed for St. Louis, and that crowds which might be going to games of tht> National league would have to pass his grounds, and that, if necessary he would throw the gates open to pull them away from the other people. Quin, of Milwau kee, declared that everything was ready In the Wisconsin city. All the promoters were smiling when the morning meeting adjourned and were sanguine of the speedy growth and suc cess of the young association. OFFICERS SELECTED.

Anson was chosen president, and Phillip Peterson, of Baltimore, was selected secretary and treasurer. Part of a board of directors was then chosen—C. S. Havenor, Milwau kee; George D. Schaefer, St. Louis, and W. J. Gilmore, Philadelphia. Boston will be given a representative on the board and time to name the director. Rules and by-laws governing the organ ization were then adopted. ' A committee was appointed to draw up a "schedule, and this report will be dcliv* ered to President Anson as soon as com pleted. This committee, however, will not do much work until the committee appointed to select the eighth member of the organization has reported. It is said there are five cities which have asked to be granted a franchise in the association. They are: New Haven, Wor cester, Syracuse, Washington and De» troit. The committee will go East within a few days and will spend considerable time in Washington, looking over the ground in that city. It is conceded by the members of the association that Washington Is the city that will probably be taken in as the fourth Eastern mem ber, completing the circuit. J. B. Harlan and F. C. Richter were appointed a committee to draw up a un iform player's contract. The adoption of the official ball was passed and the meeting was adjourned subject to the call of the president. ANSON PLEASED. Anson said he was very much gratified over his selection as president of the new association. "Our prospects are bright," he said, in thanking the delegates for giving him the office, "and I am proud to be at the head of a baseball associa tion that has no reserve clause in its constitution." Those present at the meeting were: Chicago, A. C. Anson; Milwaukee, C. S. Havenor and H. D. Quin; Louisville, I. F. Whiteside and C. L. Moore; Philadel phia, George M. Regar and Francis O. Rlehter; St. Louis, George P. Hackel, T. B. Harlan and A. H. Spink; Baltimore, John J. McGraw and Phil Peterson. Act ing President Quin held a proxy for Bos ton, T. J.

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 13.—Sailor Tom Sharkey and Joe Goddard, the Barrier champion, met tonight at Industrial hall, in what was to be a six-round bout. God dard, however, was clearly outclassed, and was saved in the middle of the fourth round from an almost certain knock-out by his tradner, Jack Dough erty, throwing up the sponge. Sharkey, in a series of terrific rushes, had warm ed thlng3 for the veteran until defeat seemed to be due in the next blow, when Dougherty surrendered. Goddard was' still anxious to fight, and made a lunge at the sailor. The two mixed things, and after rapid exchanges Goddard .slipped to the floor and, with Tom on top, camr near rolling inglorlously through the ropes. More than 4,000 persons witnessed the fight, artQ Sbarkey was given an ova tion as he took his corner with Tom O'Rourke and Jack Fogarty by his side. Clever litfle George Dixon, who acted as one of the sailor's seconds, was also cheered. Goddard also came in for a welcome. The veteran puglWst, John S. Clark, was the referee. HAS THE RIGHT RING.

PARIS, Feb. 13.—The troubles in the Isl and of Martinique .were^again brought up in the chamber of deputies today, when M. Duquesnay, deputy .from Martinique, demanded that thegovernment recall the governor of the Island, who, he said, was deceiving the government regarding the electoral situation. He also asked for the dismissal of the public prosecutor. M. Duquesnay added that he had received a dispatch today showtng that the riot, or rather insurrection, was in full swing, aud that the government was incapable of suppressing it. The minister for the colonies, M. de Crals, said that when full particulars were received the question of the reorgan ization of the administration of Martin, lque would be examined. The official news, he added, was less alarming than that of M. Duquesnay. Orders have been sent to reinforce the garrison by a com pany of marines, and a cruiser was on her way to Fort de France.

Your joyous and enthusiastic re ception at the hands of all classes at my capital is proof of the loving Interest with which the whole people have followed your now happily fulfilled task. This rec ognition has, however, a deeper signifi cance. It is an indisputable index finger, indicating how thoroughly the German people comprehend the necesisty of strengthening our sea power. The Ger man people and princes are all one with their kaiser in the Intention to erect a new landmark of the mighty development of the country, and arfe creating a new navy adequate to its requirements. As Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse gave us a welcome whereby We once again became black, white and red, so: the German peo ple are preparing to forge an arm by which, with God's help, they may remain white, black and red to all eternity, both at home and abroad.

CLEANING OP CITY. It la Considered by a Committee of Charter Commission. Messrs. O'Brien, Taylor and Smith, members of a subcommittee from the charter commission, gave a hearing yes terday afternoon to City Engineer Claus sen and Mrs. Conde Hamlin on the sub ject of street cleaning and disposal of garbage. Mr. Claussen gave the com mittee his vlewa on the subject of street cleaning and the care of garbage, as pub lished several weeks ago. His plan pro vides for the street sprinkling and clean ing and removal of garbage being don« by the city itself, rather than by con tract system. He pointed out that un der the present system $150,000 was spent for streets and sewers, $61,000 for street sprinkling and about $20,000 for garbag* every year. With the city doing thft work, he said, it could not only be done> cheaper, but better, and he favored the city owning the teams and outfit. As the provisions in the new charter for schools take about $125,000, for the next two years, in addition to the amount now expended, the committee did not think it wise to provide for the specific purpose of buying teams nd wagons, as suggested by the city engineer, but in. clined to the view that the charter could be so drafted in this particular as to al low the change to be made if the council by k three-fourths vote so decided. - The views of the subcommittee on this point will be presented in a chapter to be submitted to the charter commission at an early date. Only three members of the commission attended the meeting last evening and an adjournment was taken to Friday night, without transacting any business, Tnoge present were Messrs. Childs. Taylor an.

Wild Excitement on the \cw York Cotton Exchange. NEW YORK, Feb. 13.—The wildest ex citement prevailed at the cotton exchange throughout the entire session. No olficial record was kept of the transactions, but It Is estimated that they reached close onto SOO.OOO bales. This would be near th» record. The fluctuations of prices were frequent and violent. From the closing of Saturday's market to the highest point today there was an advance of 24 to 29 points. The upward movement, how ever, was by no means steady. Numerous periods of reaction gave the market at times the appearance of going lo pieces under liquidation and efforts to secu;e profits. From the highest to the lowest point of the day there was a difference of 10 to 16 points. But in the main the feeling was very strong. . Tho advance was based upon a sensa tional advance at Liverpool; the English market made a net gain of 6@lod on tho closing of Saturday. Orders from Great Britain and the Southwest were for enor mous quantities of cotton, chiefly to cov er short contracts. Southern buying or ders were also enormous, and Southern Bpot market reports came as strong as at any time yet. The local market for spot cotton was officially reported aa being 3-1 C cents high er, while later sellers were scarce at Vie advance. The market was very active up to the close of business, and finished very firm at an advance of 17<§33 points. Cartcrville Riot Case.
