Western Association Is Row Looking
Over Other Cities and May
Complete Circuit With
out the Twins.
CHICAGO. Jan. 2.—Nothing was done
today regarding the permanent organiza
tion of the Western Base Ball associa
tion. A temporary organization was
formed last week with the understanding
that a conference would be held here
today to launch the new league. None
of the promoters put in an appearance,
except , Mr. Burnham, of Detroit, who
was appointed temporary president, and
Mr. Manning, of Kansas City. The meet
ing was postponed until such time as a
full attendance of the prospective mag
nates can be secured Mr. Burnham re
turned to Detroit with President John
' son of the American league, for the pur
pose of looking over the situation there
. and helping to decide on the advisabili
ty of placing a second team In that
city. The American league will have the
same team there which represented the
league last season and if the outlook Is
propitious the Western association will
also locate a club there.
President Johnson, before leaving De
troit, said he would call the meeting
for the American league before the mid
dle of January. The meeting will be
hold in Chicago instead of Philadelphia
as planned.. . ■• .
The Tribune tomorrow will say: The
new league struck a snag In George Len
non, of St. Paul, and have not yet com
pleted plans made necessary by the un
expected state of affairs up in the Twin
Cities. Without St. Paul the Western
association does not want Minneapolis.
It is more than likely the Burnham or
ganization will arrange a new circuit,
leaving out both of the Minnesota cities.
Application by Toronto club of th eEast
ern league was made, it is said for a
franchise in the new league, but this the
magnates refuse to confirm. Toronto
would not be a desirable addition with
out Buffalo to pair it in the schedule
and in breaking the jumps. But the
Western association cannot plan on Buf
falo which at present is a member of the
.American league. It will.be necessary
; for the association people to await the
action of the American league concern-
Ing the dropping of Buffalo cr Indian
apolis before deciding on Toronto's ap
plication. ..

Gov.-elect Van Bant fepeiri the day yes

private secretary, Robert Jamison. He
will be in St. Paul today. ,
"When Capt. Van Sant. coqies over to the
Capital City today he wiU find himself
besieged by office-seekers, many of whom
have been here for several days awaiting
his coming. The captain has thus far suc
ceeded in keeping private his plans of
appointments, and if he has made any
outside of that of private secretary no
one but himself seems to be positively
certain of it.
Among those who are now occupying
places of prominence for positions under
the incoming administration is J. J. Bas
ton, a former Minneapolis man, who ;eeks
the grain inspectorship in the Mill City.
He is said to stand good chances of ap
pointment. Hennepin county does not
seem to be at all modest In her claims
upon the governor to be. A. B. Robbins
and George L. Matchan, both of Minne
apolis, are out. for the oil inspectorship.
Robbins originally sought the chief grain
inspectorship, but finding that he would
be left on that, decided to change
his plans. His friends wanted him to
get after the log rolling job at the Mill
City, but in the meantime Representative
S. S. Smith was mentioned as a prab
able recipient of that portfolio, and so
Robbins decided that his prey must be
the oil Inspectorship. Smith, It now
appears, can not serve, and Is therefore
not now an obstacle to Robbins. The
latter may decide later, if his chances
seem hopeless for. the position of his
first choice, to get In line after all for

and made county chairman. He has his

posed to having him rewarded with any- I

After all is said.. it is still believed that

A decidedly sensational twist was taken
In the senatorial fight yesterday when
one of the most prominent Evans men,
a representative from the northern rait
of the state, quietly assured a friend
that the Evans bcom had received its
death knell. His manner of expressing
It was: "We are all In now; that's a
dead certainty." A noticeable lull In the
Evans fight was the sutoject of comment
yesterday. Mr. Evans and his managers
were in the city throughout the day, and
they did not express themselves at all
discouragingly in speaking of their
chances, but It was generally believed
that the Evans stock had experienced
a decided slump. A Sixth district Re
publican, who is in very close touch with
the entire situation, informed a repre
sentative of the Globe last night that
Mr. Evans was as good as out of the
race. The plan of the opposition Is to
CBuse a deadlock and then sacrifice Evans i
for Tom Lowry. There will be a stam
pede for the streel railway magnate and
he will make a desperate fight for the
toga. Lowry has not yet declared him
self a candidate, but that he !s one is
earnestly bslieved. Among those who are
said to be managing his little craft are
Al Ferris, of Brainerd; Senator Buck
rran, of Little Falls and several other
Sixth district men as well as Minneapolis
men. Senator Buckman, asked last night
where he stood, said he was not on the
Tawney platform. In the mind of the
Sixth district man referred to .above, this
scheme is regarded as one of the most
probable that is now under way and it
has commended Itself to many others
as being very plausible.
The contest promises to become still
more complicated by the entrance of
Tarns Bixby and Congressman Heatwole,
of the Third district, and possibly Con
gressman McCleary, of the second. Bix
by has wired from Washington to Repre
sentative Barteau that he will be a can
didate and requests his own (Goodhue)
county to stand back of him until the
matter Is settled by a caucus of the dis
trict. Heatwole has written to members
of the legislature from his district, which
is also Tarn's district, that he -mill com*
back from the national capital and enter
the fight if the district will agree to
give it 3 support to him. This makes
things rather embarrassing: for the peo
ple of the Third, as well as renders the
whole situation more complex. There
has been no caucus of the Third district
members and now they wlil wait until
Bixby and Heatwole arrive from Wash
ington before holding one. One of the
leading members of the house from the
Third, and a man who is very closely al
lied with Tarns Bixby, informed a
Globe representative yesterday that in
case both these gentlemen declared them
selves candidates, subject to the action
of the district Heatwole would receive
first consideration. The gentleman is
perhaps as well qualified to voire the
sentiments of the district delegation as
any member in it, and Is personally a
strong Eixby man, but adheres to the
doctrine that Heatwole had first claim
on the backing of the district. Bixby
will be in St. Paul not earlier than Sat
urday and Heatwole about -the same
Gen. Clapp and Messrs. Tawney and
Evans held a short conference yesterday
afternoon at the Merchants' hotel, where
all three have headquarters, and the time
for holding, a caucus was discussed

Tawney said he would leave it to his
committee to settle, and Clapp positively
refused to agree to any definite time
Ine Evans men yesterday drew up a set
of resolutions favorable to an early cau
cus, but failed to get signatures to it
Clapp men are determined that they will
not push things and Tawney and his
managers are in the same frame of mind
Senator ' Sweningson, chairman of the
committee in charge of the Tawney in
terests, stated yesterday: "Our cause is
a new one, and we naturally prefer to
go slow with this thing bo that we may
at least have as good a chance as the
other fellows of getting our forces to
gether." These are understood to be
Mr. Tawney's sentiments exactly

Congressman McCleary is still at the
Windsor and will probably be thera for
some time yet, taking a good view of the
contest. The representative from the
Second district stated to the Globe re
porter yesterday:
"No, I am not a candidate for the sen

me at first, before they took any action
whatever and asked m© if I would en

Mr. McCleary was asked if that was
his final decision, but did not say that It
was. His answer left room for another
one to be formed.

ROME, Dec. 2.—Today half the popula
tion of Rome crowds Tiber's banks tc
gaze at the river mighty in flood. The
almost constant rains of the month of
.November have produced inundations
throughout the country, and the Tiber
has overflowed Its banks in many parts,
bringing about wreck and ruin to dwell
ers in the lowlands through which it
The people of Rome are deeply Inter
ested in the rise of the river. Many of
them who dwell in the parts of the oity
which are lower in level, ar.d which are
the first to be flooded, have had to leave
their dwellings, which are now unap
proachable except by boats. Those who
dwell in the more elevated quarters have
taken occasion of the first bright and
sunshiny weather for some time past to
visit the places where the flood is most
The Roman Forum is one of the first
places to be flooded. The extraordinary
inundations of today has rendered it a
great lake In which the ruined buildings
rise in the midst of the yellow water
like the visionary city of a mirage. An
cient history repeats itself in the Forum
today. It is Horace who In his ode to
Caesar, describing the Inundation of the
year 8 B. C, writes:
We have seen the tawny Tiber, with
Wrenched violent back from vents in
Tuscan seas,
March on to Muma's hall and Vesta's
Menacing downfall.
The residence of Numa, the Regla, ad-
Joined the Temple of Vesta in the Forum,
not far from the base of the Palatine.
Today the gentle waves of Tiber lap the
formless foundations of Vesta's shrine
and .ie close to the marble remnants of
the Regia.
From the Temple of Romulus, the son
of Maxentius, to the base of the arch
of Septimius Severus, and from the Basili
ca Julia to the other side of the Forum,
there If nothing but yellow water visible,
amid which fragments of ancient build
ings rear their heads and are reflected
in the still, mirrorlike surface of the risen
The photographer finds a feast here to
day. All kinds of machines, from trie
heavy large sized article on its tripod to
the pocket kodak, are directed from many
points on the flooded Forum, and what
might be called water colored views of
this classical spot will be shown in many
a distant land.
At St. George in Velabro, beneath the
west side of the Palatine, where the
four-sided arch of Janus Quadrlfrons and
the arch of silversmiths, raised in honor
of Septimus Severus, stand, the river
has risen. The church, which was once
the titular church of Cardinal Newman,
was flooded to about eight feet in height
from the floor. An unapproachable gas
lamp lighted before the river rose in
the night is burning in the bright sun
The temple of Hercules, by the Tiber's
brink, with Its circular portico of nine
teen fluted marble colums, stands in the
mid3t of a large and deep lake. The
chif-ch of Santa Maria, In Cosmedin, re
cently restored with great care and cost
to its antique state of the seventh cen
tury, it filled with water eight feet deep.
St. Paul's, that grand church of bright,
new marbles that are a delight to every
one who looks upon them, In unapproach
able, as tho road leading to it is deep
under water.
As regards inundations, writes Lan
ciana, the Tiber ranks among- the proud
est rivers in the world. That of Decem
ber, ISTO, will never fade from the mem
ory of the living generation, and, he
continues, "I fear that this impressive
and picturesque spectacle will never
again be seen, since civilization has
taken up the matter and by means of
lofty embankments, of locks and gates,
will succeed, I am sure, In keeping the
river confined hereafter within its two
parallel walls." .
Undoubtedly the flood of the December
of 1900 would present a much greater
resemblance to that of the December of
IS7O were it not for the Tiber embank
ment. The river bed is widened and
offers a more spacious flow to the water
It Is only in the lower parts of the
city where the water floods, rising
through the drains.
The Pantheon is unapproachable from
the front by the water that surrounds
it and occupies its floor; but the Pan
theon is in one of the lowest districts
in Rome.
The height above its ordinary level
which the Tiber has reached today can
be no less than twenty feet. A large
portion of the Campagna surrounding
Rome is under water. Some accidents
have, of course, occurred, but the serv
ice of assistance Is so well managed that
these are reduced to a minimum.

I can not sleep. .Whenever I feel this way I always take a Ripans

nervousness and produces sound, refreshing sleep without any

It is above all at Pons Milvius, says

something majestic and sad at the sums

flows with a fearful rapidty and with
whirlpools. All the hollows at the foot
of the green hills form so many lakes
and ponds, and on the river are seen
trees and blocks of wood floating and

A small stintless bee Is found In the
state of Sinaloa and in Tepic. The honey
of this bee is not great In quantity,
is dark colored, very liquid, and Is said
not to crystallze. Another peculiarity
of the honey if that it has a decidedly
sour, or tart, taste, and on thin ac
count it Is much .sought after as .beins
a greater delicacy than the sweet honey
of the tame bee. The reason these bees
are* small producers is that, as they are
stingiest, they are constantly robbed by
the larger varieties, the tame bee being
one of the robbers.
