13 FOX! GEORGE AND WESTERN Tebnn'i Little Injunction Salt and What it Really Tasini. SOKE BASE BALL HISTORY REVIEWED Effort ef White WU(i Install Hlse self la Control ef Twt Leaanes M Tmar Haras' la arret it ode. Something doing. .Unless Q. Foy 'Whit Winn Tebeau abandon his Injunction suit, some history Of the Western Bans Ball league will be . reviewed by the district court of Lancaster count r Neb., at Lincoln. Much of what will then ha brought out has been already told In tha columns of The Bee, but It will bear repeating. Mr. Tebeau sued out a temporary writ of Injunction last week to pre rent tha annual meeting of the Western league being held unless ha was allowed to sit as a member, claiming that the Denver franchise belonged to him. The case was set for hearing on Monday and then adjourned to Wednesday of the pres ent week. Tebeau's Claim Is preposterous, but not more so than many of his other . actions, and only serves to further tm- rni on the bsse ball world that he is a man of Infinite reeouroe and without oruples when It comes to harrasslng a rtral or getting even with some one who has Incurred his Ill-will. Ha has barely the remotest prospect of winning any thing In Ms present suit. "tut he takes the gambler's chance, for he ran lose nothing, and. If some unexpected flaw In the proceeding should by chance land htm ta possession of a franchise at Denver, . be would be that much ahead. In order to fully understand Tebeau's present position, -it Is necessary to go back to the beginning. Four years ago George Tebeau was Jn Denver, apparently with out occupation. He was In correspondence with W. A. Rourke and others, and along In January, 1900, at a meeting held In Des Molnea the Western league was formed, with Denver, Dee Moines. Omaha, Pueblo. Sioux City and St. Joseph as members. This little six-club league was a winner from the word go. but before the season closed the expansion ' fever had struck the American league, and Milwau- kee, Minneapolis. St. Paul and Kansas City were thrown out Into the world. The genius of Tebeau began to get In Its work right there. He worked up the ex pansion of the Western. Ostensibly dls-pc-sln of his Interests In Denver to Mr. J'ackard. the present owner of the fran chise. Tebeau planted himself In Kansas City as owner of the new franchise there, and Induced A. B. Beal. who owned the Sioux City franchise to go to Minneapolis. Billy Hulen, who had the Pueblo fran chise, moved It up to Colorado Springs, and the circuit In 1901 was Colorado Springs, Denver, Des Moines, Kansas City, 'Milwaukee. Minneapolis. Omaha, St. Jo seph and ,St Pauj. This move wasn't successful from a financial point of view, for the big towns from the Ban Johnson circuit would have none or very little of the ball furnished by the Western league; but that summer gave Tebeau a Still fur- ther chance, and before the end of the season, he had his plans formed for split ting ths new league, and forming, two more, it came about this time that Tebeau still owned the Denver franchise. His plan contemplated the formation of the American association circuit as it now exists, and the relegation of the Western to ta condition of the six-club league in which he found It Tebeaa had a willing aid In fl". J. Hickey, then president of the Western league, who was ambitious to rise still higher In the base ball world, and who aided ta working- up sentiment for the Tebeaa plan. When they approached Rourke. who had bought out Keith's In terests In the Omaha plant. It was with a proposition that he remain in ih. .1.. ' club circuit. This Rourke refused to listen to. tie was asked to place a price on his plant and franchise and did so, giving an option In August, 1901. to run ninety days. This option was allowed ta nin nut Kv Tebeau and Hickey because they thought they had their plans so welL worked .,n , that Rourke would be forced Into a six- elub league. In the meantime Van Brunt of St. Joseph was getting busy, for he had soma monev tied un in v so wanted to know-where he was coming- in. or rawer out At a meeting held In Chicago after the season, knurl. ... offered a two-year franchise for Omaha In the American assoclatiop. Others were being let In on the ground floor, with ten year franchises and Rourk. inm. having one for himself. Finally, on advice or irienas ana to- protect his Interests. Rourke agreed to accept a two-vase e,.. of chise In the new league, and put up a for- icit or two tnat Be would stick. Prior to this, Tebeau and Billy Hulen got to Tommy Burns of Colorado Springs and sold htm tha "plant" there. When Burns came to look over the situation.

This riled him to such an extent that he came charging over to Omaha to see Rourke. and urge him to keep out of the new league, saying ha would spend all of Brother Jimmy Burns' millions In order to get even with Tebeau. Van Brunt was making some such talk himself, and Pack ard got Into the game with a little offering of his own. Beall was counted out by the Tebeau-Hlckey combine from the very start, Walter Wllniot being picked for Minneapolis, but the question was to get Beall's lease on ths grounds there away from him. The Western league meeting waa called for St. Joe In December, 1KC, and the new league was to meet In Kan sas City In January. When tha Western met Hickey resigned as president, Packard represented Denver and Tebeau claimed a seat for Kansas City, but was expelled under the rdles. .Prior to this meeting a determined effort hsd been made to buy Rourke's Omaha plant. T. J. Hickey came to Omaha with as pretty a bunch of money as ever tempted a man, offered to pay Rourke cash for the ground lease and franchise at a figure that was eminently satisfactory under any other Conditions. Just at that time Tommy Burns was busiest working on Rourke to Induce him to stick to the Western. Against the ad vice of some of his best friends Rourke decided to stay with the Western, and refused to sell to Hickey. Hickey set about then to put In a rival team In Omaha, and went so far as to contract for grounds and a franchise was awarded Frank Bandle conditionally. In lieu of the one granted , to-- Rourke for pmaha. It was not until several weeks later, and after It had been plainly shown that two teams In Omaha meant certain disaster. that Bandle declined to be a party to wreck ing the game locally, and withdrew from the American association. This last action re moved Omaha from the circuit of the American association. But the magnates of that league have never taken their eyes off this town. Now the fight Was squarely on, and the wreckers and the reorganliers went at it. The Bee at that time, favoring the Amer ican association, predicted disaster for the Western, and Its predictions have been verified almost to the letter. But here Is what Is Interesting In the present situa tion: A. B. Beall still held the Minneapolis franchise In the Western and George Te beau the Denver franchise in the Western. Beall waa Inclined "to get out of base ball, but he agreed to hold onto his Minneapolis lease, the, Western magnates agreeing to see him whole on the deal. Relying "on this state of affairs, the Western people held to the grounds at. Kansas City and Milwaukee and prepared to put In Clubs there and at Minneapolis to compete with the American. At Denver Packard was quietly moving along on the supposition that he would have the franchise and the Broadway park there, just as he had had the season before, neglecting the element of Tebeau altogether. Just at the most interesting Juncture Mr. A. B. Beall bobbed up In Denver with an assignment of Tebeau s lease to the Broadway park, and to his franchise In tha Western league, this having been given In lieu of Beall's hold ings at Minneapolis. This act of treachery compelled the Western to hustle not only for a town to take the place of Minne apolis, but to secure new grounds In Den ver. v At a meeting of the Western league at Kansas City Jimmy Whitfield was elected president, the Denver franchise waa formally awarded to Packard and Peoria was given the place of Minneapolis. Beall. finding that his new deal was getting him noth ing, transferred his tease to Packard, and the Denver situation was apparently left In good condition. At the Kansas City meeting Otto Floto. the sporting editor of the Denver Post was present trying to se cure the Denver franchise. He had the backing of the owners of' the Post, Fred Q. Bonflls and Harry Taratnen. and was willing to put up any kind of money. The franchise went to Mr. Packard. That Is the history of the Western league and IU dealings with Tebeau, In brief. One may only Judge a man's Intentions by his actions, and there 1m nothing In Tebeau's course to Indicate that he wants to do Omaha any good In a base ball way. He recently offered Bill Rourke a figure which the Utter says la satisfactory for the Omaha plant; but Rourko Reclined to sell, because he believes, as anyone snust. that If Tebeau gets a foothold In Omaha, It Is goodby to the chance of thla tnw tuver getting Into a bigger league ba 4t -is now In. Tebeau Is after Packard u nard as he can go, and some reason exists for thinking thai he has the moral If not the financial sup port of Messrs. Tanynen and Bonflls. If this combination can ret hold of Denver and Omaha, they will have a great com bination, as they will then In a great measure absolutely control two leaguea the Western and the American association' In which Tebeau owns Louisville and Kan sas City. This combination would maks George Tebeau the uncrowned king of western base ball. And Tommy Bums, who was telllag how he would spend his last cent to -et even with Tebeau two coice4 any time by the best by or i H r-- ' -- -J Columbia Phonograph 1621 Farnam St., Omaha. years ego. Is now doing all he can to help his ancient enemy win out and giv ing as his reason that he doesn't like the way that wan Rourke acted. All that Bill Rourke ever did to Tommy Burns was to stand by him In' his fight two years ago. If Rourks had taken The Bee's tip at that time, he would now be the owner of a franchise In the American association, and wouldn't have to worry a rplnute about what Bums will or will not do. But Burns has a bully forrettery, and It Is working full time right now. And the next meeting of the Western league will not be held until after Judge Holmes holds court at Lincoln next Wed nesdsy, and maybe not then. There's a little maxim that Tebeau should remember: "He who seeks equity must do equity," and a man coming Into court asking for rejlef that the law will not give him must come with clean hands. GOLF FIXTURES FOR YEAR Anneal Meeting of 1. 8. O. A. Has Some Perplexlns Folate to Decide. The annual meeting of the United States Goll association, which is' to be held at New Tork In February, will be asked to award St. Louts the annual championship event this year, but the Indications are that It will go elsewhere. Secretary Bal lou ' says that the association has been arked to recognise the events already sched uled at St. Louis In an official way, but the parent organization has refused to do this, and so the big golf events which are scheduled for September 19 to 24 will not have the official sanction. The St Louis contests will be unique in many ways, dne of the competitions the putting event over a nine-hole course has been announced as a night event to be played by electric lights. This will surely draw the gallery, whatever effect It may have upon the players. There will also be driving and approaching contests, while the big events will be individual and team championship competitions. The team event mill require teams of ten men each to enter, .representing not clubs, but associations, and two or an ore teams may enter from the same association if desired. The Increasing Army of golfers who com pose the rank and Die of the Transfhlssls slppl Golf association are wondering where the annual championship event this year will be held. Borne time ago the semi official announcement was made that It would doubtless be held at St Louis, but such a storm of protest against this propo sition has been voiced by the membership that It does not now seem that this pro ject will be carried out It Is argued that a city In which there Is a world-wide show Is the poorest place on 'earth In which to hold such an event. And then there Is this other and more Interesting question as to whether any of the St. Louis clubs would entertain the Transmlsslssippl In view' of the many events which are to be con tested on their links during the year. It certainly would not do to solicit such an Invitation, for a club which la not patriotic enough and does not want the tourney badly enough to make a bid for It should not have It It Is also urged that some of the newer members of the Transmlssls sippl, such as the St, Paul or Minneapolis organizations, should be given an oppor tunity. They have some first-class golfers. So has St Louis, but the golfers of the southern burgh are not very enthusiastic over Transmlsslssippl affairs this year. The suggestion was made last week that the event should be held In this city. That would be very acceptable so far as the local golfers are concerned, but It Is only two years since Omaha had the honor of entertaining the Transmlsslssippl, and this fact la urged against a -local reception. In any event the officials of the Transmlssls sippl may be trusted to do the right thing. In P.. I Forgan of 301 North Eighteenth street this city has one of the descendants of the Inventor of the gutta percha golf ball, which revolutionised the game. And the story of how this Invention was brought about Is almost as Interesting as Is Mr. "Forgan. John Patterson, a Scotchman. was surprised one day to find that some of his friends had caused a mummy to .be shipped to his Scottish home from Egypt As a part of the wrapping this mummy boasted of a bit of gutta percha, which was put on the mummy's wrappings by - Mr. Patterson's friends, who had shipped It from Pharaoh's former realms. Mr. Pat terson, being of a speculative turn of mind, dug out seme of this gutta percha and when he saw that It would weld together he caused a small ball to be made of It as he was an ardent golfer.- Imagine his sur prise when he found that It would carry a long dlstsnce and that It kept its shape. He made a lot of the balls and golfers were delighted. Unfortunately for Patterson he did not take out a patent or attempt to protect himself In any way or else he might have made millions. Patterson Is a direct relative of Mr. Forgan. Another relative, Robert Forgan. Is club maker to the king at the famous St Ambrose links. Where formerly he had three or four assistants. NO CASH DOWN Go,, Whole, e and Retail "'nmmPmk . " nggsw n there are now about fifty. Mr. Forgan knows the game from start to finish and has played It on Its native heath In Scot land. He Is a cousin to J. B. and D. R. Forgan, the famous golfing bankers of Chicago. The general meeting of the Women's Metropolitan Golf association will be held In New Tork City January 29. The nomi nating committee has made the following nominations for. the ensuing year: Mrs. Edward A. Ma nice. Baltusrol, preeident; Miss Ruth Underbill, Nassau, secretary; Miss F. E. Wlckara. Shlnnecock Hills, treasurer: Mrs. C. L. Tiffany, Apawamls club, fifth member executive committee. The meeting should be one of Importance, as the Indifference shown by the represen tative competitors for the part two years has lowered the standard of the organize tlon. Five years ago the Women's Metro politan Golf association furnished the bulk of the competitors for the women's ns tlonal championship, but at present largely through indifference, they are absolutely back numbers. The United States Golf association .now has an associate membership of allied clubs, every section of the country being represented. These are subdivided Into twenty-nine silled organisations nine In New Tork. live In Massachusetts, four hi ffw Jersey, four In Pennsylvania, three In Illinois, two In Maryland, and one each In Maine and Missouri. These have' the power of voting at the annual meeting which is to be held at New Tork in February. The west has Instituted a movement providing for the discussion of the question as to whether or not "taxation without represen tation is not unamerlcanT" The advocates of the extension of the voting power de clare that It was well enough when qie association was in Its Infancy to have ail Uie power In the hands of ths associated clubs, but the association, has grown Into a powerful body, and the many minor or ganisations of the country are now be coming anxious to have a voice In the an nual meeetlng of the parent organisation. Walter J. Travis, the amateur golf cham pion, came out a winner In the Flnehurst (N. C.) Inauguration tournament, defeat ing W. C. Fownes, Jr., of the Highland club.' Pittsburg, 1 up and 1 to play, at thirty-six holes, In the final round for the championship cup. For a time It looked as If the Plttaburg player would win. At the end of the first round of eighteen holes the players were even up, but the steadi ness of the champion on the afternoon round gave him the victory. Bernard Nlcholls, . who was in Omaha last week, says that two things combine to enable Travis to win his victories. The first of these is hfs machine-like precision, and the next is the annoyance he causes players with whom he Is paired by his slowness. He always takes at least two' practice swings; and Is exasperatlngly slow about these, but the moment he steps up to the ball he swings his club Quickly. He takes three and more practice strokes with his putter on the greens, and all of these extra movements cause his contestant some em barrassment and uncertainty which' Is wearing on the nerves. Bernard Nlcholls has a tecord for a drive of 215 yartis over a level space, in mid summer when the ground was soft and with no wind to help him. He walks up to a ball, toes It with his brassey, and away It goes, before the ordinary indi vidual Is aware that he Is even ready to shoot. Nlcholls Invariably drives with a little pull to his ball. Sometimes he gets more than he bargained for, but in any event the argument Is the same, as it has always been said by Vardon. Taylor, Hil ton and the late lieutenant Tate, who was the highest authority on such matters, that the golfer who .can pull a ball consistently has the making of the best golfer In the business. It Is an Incontrovertible fact that a pulled ball has a longer carry after alighting than the ball that Is hit abso lutely straight, while a sliced ball can't be compared with either for distance, although some slices will carry for a great distance, but the path of the ball after alighting Is so nearly circular that nearly as much Is lost as Is gained. Nlcholls has ths dis tinction of being the only person on this side of the Atlantlo who 'twice defeated Harry Vardon when he was in this country. Nlcholls Is an Englishman and his former home was at Sandwich, where the big open championship tournament is to be held this year. Nlcholls will make another visit to the west this fall, and he thinks he will be able to spend a fortnight In this city. WEEK WITH THE BUSY BOWLER HlliMikn Well Organised Capture the 1MB Ceatren at Cleve land Meeting;. The Milwaukee bowlers are after the next national bowling tournament and to that end have formed. What Is known as the Milwaukee Bowling Tournament com mittee for defraying the 1906 expenses of the American Bowling congress. It Is the intention to Incorporate the company and dispose of $5,000 worth of stock, of which 17.500 has already' been subscribed. The leading candidates for ths 1X8 tournament are Milwaukee, Louisville. Philadelphia and Detroit. It Is announced that Milwaukee Is the 'leading candidate, as the delegates from Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis, Du buque and Milwaukee will vote for the city of breweries. Boms Important developments are ex pected at the annual meeting of the Ameri can Bowling congress. The officials. It Is announced, have arranged the legislative program so that it will not Interfere with the tourney, the sessions of the legislative body being called early In the week, before the visitors are scheduled to play. There Is a new rule which has lessened the num ber of legislators and It Is expected there fore that the sessions of the lawmaking ' body will be short. It Is expected that the main feature of the session will be the three amendments which have been drawn up by ex-President Langhenry. T4-.ese will call for the reduction of the weight of the ball to a sixteen-pound and all-wood sphere; will make It obligatory on a team to be a member of some city association before It can bowl In a tournament bowling under the national congress rules, and, third. allow a team to bowl a man any time he appears at as alley ready for a game. allowing his score to te counted- for what It Is worth. Of these three amendments the first Is Intended to meet the easterners half way la their desire to eliminate the heavy bails, with which they claim Chi cago's big records were made during 19A They want an ail-wood ball of any weight. but this the western element has objected to and this rule Is offered as a compromise. The second amendment will help the city associations In making their power felt, while the third Is merely offered to clear up the understanding of when a game shall be forfeited A movement Is now en foot among the leading Omaha bowlers, as well as a num ber of representative business men, to select and equip a strong team to represent this city at the next annual meeting of the American Bowling congress, which is to be beld next month at Cleveland. O. The leading western cities, including Den ver, Kansas Ci'T. Minneapolis and St. Paul, as well ss San Franctoeo and Los Angeles, are regularly represented at the congress, but up to the present tints ne Omaha tsam has made the trip and It Is the belief among- those interested that It would be an advantage la a great awa&g way to TT TT o "T 4J 2 II COOL Cures B.

The phenomenal work during the present season of some of the local bowlers Is stimulating Interest In this direction and at the present time the outlook Is very good that Omaha Is to bs represented.
