Friday afternoon for contempt of court
ihey are beginning to see the other
phase of the decision returned by
Judge Grid ley.
The court held that the constitution
plainly required five clubs to consti
tute a quorum to do business and five
clubs they will never get into a meet
ing unless they descend from their
tall equine and talk like nn to their
northern "brothers. The latter have
pretty clearly indicated that they will
not submit to gavel rule and neither
will they permit Kinsella to fix up cir
cuit changes, schedules, etc., at will
and without consulting them and then
exact ttuir approval. In other words,
they insist that a majority shall rule
and the constitution of the league
shall be lived up to. j
WAT A FAIR I1KA1-.
Sports writers in the lower end of
the circuit are trying to make out that
the northern clubs are trying to run
things, using this in lieu of something
more tangible upon which to 'base an i
argument. They know, as everybody J
else around the circuit does, who has j
been "runnings things.'' They are al-j
so aware that all the northern clubs
ask is the same consideration as the

R. G. Fisher, field captain of the
Danville team last season, will be
taken south on the training trip by
the Chicago Cubs this spring. While
there isn't much chance for him to
land a regular job, he will have a
chance to develop.
President Hotter of the Quincy
club has notified President Justice
of the Central league that he may
draw upon the club for $2,000, the
balance of the release price. Sub
scriptions did not make up the
whole amount, but the directors dug
up the balance.
Great surprise will no doubt be
felt over the announcement by Kin
sella that waivers have been secur
ed by Minneapolis on Dick Smith and !
Glenn Schroeder, drafted from
Springfield last fall, and both will
be back with the Senators this
spring, the former as manager. This
is about the steenth time that this
sort of thing has happened to Smith.
President Tearney gave it out that
he would go Into covin Saturday and
try to have the Dubuque injunction dis
rolved, but he did not do so. It would
be of no avail if he should succeed
in this move. The Waterloo injunc

Hackenschmidt came to Davenport

from Kansas City, where Thursday
night he wrestled two hourB, less 1
minute and 15 seconds, to throw Amer

out after his long bout and ride from
Kansas City, so that he proceeded to
make short work of the job before
him. Curley did not 6tay for the match,
as business called him to Chicago in
the afternoon. John Stohl. whom Un

a strapping big youth, did not resist
the prowess of the "IJon" very long,

St. Louis, Feb. 6. The Flenners
won the national title last night
pins, a total made 11
days ago at the American Bowling
Congress tournament, which wound
up Its main events here last night.
For 11 days the star clubs of the
entire country tried to lower the big
mark of the Flenners, which is the
third highest In the history of
11 meets held by the congress, but
the only serious bid came from an
other Chicago club, the Sengs

night, only to fall In the final frame
