Mrj-iWAUKEEi, Jan. 13.—President
\Vhitfield, of the Western league, has ac
quired a title to the old American
league grounds here, and, unless all
signs fail, Milwaukee will have two
baseball teams next season. The trans
action involving the transfer of the
baseball grounds at Sixteenth and JJoyd
streets, where Hugh Duffy's team mad

consummated yesterday afternoon, when
Fred C. Gross, of the old Milwaukee
club, received notice from his bankers
that- President Whitfield had deposited
with the First National Bank of Kansas
City the money required to place the
Western league in possession of the
lease held by the Milwaukee baseball
club, in addition to an option of five
years more on the property.
It was generally believed that the
Western league would not attempt to
break into this territory, and the pre
sumption, based on statements made at
various times by Mr. Gross to the effect
that Whitfield had asked only for an
option on the grounds, created the feel,
ing that the Western league was four
liushing in Milwaukee for the purpose or
compelling- the American association to
keep out of Western league territory
in Omaha. Consequently the announce

hands of the Kansas City man created

E. Li. Ogilvie, manager of the South
St. Paul Advertising and Market bureau,
is the St. Paul man reported by Presi
dent Whitiield, of the Western league,
as tho applicant for the St. Pan! fran
chise in TTuit league. Although in the
Associated Press reports Mr. Ogilvie is
mentioned as an applicant, the general
opinion is that he already has the St.
Paul franchise in his pocket.
The Western league magnates will meet
in Kansas City this morning. Mr. Ogil
vie cannot leave his business at South
St. Paul to go to the meeting, but to
The Globe yesterday he said that
President Whitfield was authorized to
act for him.
Mr. Ogilvie believes that the Western
will play both in St. Paul and Minne
apolis. Whitfield's announcement over
looked Minneapolis entirely, but Mr.
Ogilvie hinted that Minneapolis parties
were already interested and were pre
paring to invest their money.
The St. Paul representative of the
Western is thoroughly convinced t'.uV; his
league can make good in the Twin Cit

carried out, he intends to at once begin

their hands off." This declaration is in
terpreted to mean that the representa
tions at the Vatican have not been whoi.y
successful and that the Prussian admin
istration continues at variance with the
local Catholic authorities.
Chancellor Talked Cleverly.
Although the house and the galleries
were crowd* ri. the proceedings were very
calm. Count von Buelow cirew the ad
miration of his hearers by his smooth
and adroitly worded periods, iiis speech
today was %bout three times the ordinary
length of the chancellor's deliverances.
The National Liberals desired to know
how Germanism was to be upheld, while
the Polish members bitteily crit'eised the
recent events at Wreschen, ff?claring that
the sentences of the courts "must have
caused justice to veil her face in shame."
Von Buelow preTared nis remarks by
saying that the incident? at Wreschen
had been greatly exaggerated and had
been utilized to plunge Germany into in
ternecine difficulties. What had occurred
was the fault of the Polish agitation and
not of the Prussian school system, which
was the same as had been enforced in
the bilingual districts for the past thirty
years and which was as little addicted to
cruelty as was the Prussian administra
tion of justice.
Corporal Punishment Abolished.
Corporal punishment, the speaker said,
would hereafter be omitted during re
ligious Instruction. No one prevented the
Poles from speaking Polish, but they
must also learn to speak German and
participate in the German work of civili
"Now that these national conflicts ara
forced on us, only two possible courses are
open, either to allcw ourselves to be ■van
quished without a struggle or to protect
our skins. We cannot allow the roots of
Prussian strength to rot. The Polish
question is the most important before the
nation, and on its settlement depends the
development of the immediate future o£
our fatherland. Our policy is unchange
able. Tf need be. we shall provide further
means to Improve the condition of the
German peasants, promote industry and
establish garrisons. We entertain no
doubt of the loyalty of the members of
this house, but I beg the house to have
no doubt about the d:sloyalty of the
The chancellor concluded by assuring
the Germans of East Prussia that th<i
government would not deviate in the
slightest from the linos'laid out by "that
greatest German, the late Prince Bis
