Cantillon, president of the Min neapolis club of the American Asso ciation, hero today, the deal by which the Chicago Federal league team gains possession of a North Side park site was to bo closed. Cantillon acquired the property a few years ago when the association planned to invado Chicago. The declaration by President Ban Johnson, of the American league, that t the advent of the Federal league was , a good thing for baseball, surprised fans ! today. Johnson said he expected mag nates to suffer heavy financial losses in 1914 if the Federals put up a stiff fight, but that the warfare would eliminate a number of "undesirables" from or ganized baseball. He left it to the spprt world to figure out what he meant. il ! . II ANDERSON AND CROSS BOTH IN EXCELLENT FORM POLICE KEEP UP HUNT FOR MISSING "LOUISE' UNITED PRESS LEAS1GD WITH.

United States National Bank. r UNITED PRESS LEASED WIRE. Los Angeles, Dec. 31. Bud Anderson and Leach Cross wrote finish to their real training yesterday and from now until ring timo thoy will do virtually nothing but light exercise to keop in perfect trim. Both lads have been working like Trojans and the wiay sur plus weight has been melting off their muscular bodies shows plainly that they are rounding to excellent form. If confidence has anything to do with the fight, Bud has the battle won. Anderson, his muscles standing out liko whipcords, appears to be tho most powerful put up lightweight in the ' game. From tho tip of his toes to the crown of his head he shows that he is in prime condition. He will have no ! difficulty in making the woight. ' Becntiso of tho rain yesterday Bud switched training quarters to the West ern Athletic Club, as it was too wet to work out at the Vernon arena. ' ' Bud is feeling and working so good that I hate to take any chances," said Manager McDonald. " It all seems like a dream to see the boy working and feeling so great. I only hope that I don't wake up until after the battle is all over, for under the present condi tions he is without doubt the surest kind of a winner." Sam Wallach, manager of Leach Cross today said that the neck punch used by the Vancouver boy is a foul blow, and that he will ask George Blako to bar the punch when the boys clash Thurs-, dayy. Manager Wallach says Anderson strikes with the back of the hand and that this blow is against the Marquis of j iueensDerry rules. Betting switched today, the prices tightening up a full point. When ten to eight was offered the Cross money I began ( to slow up and wagering was more lively than at any time since the' market opened. Cross probably will re main favorite. MAT PLACE FEDERAL LEAGUE IN NEW YORK (UNITED PRESS LEASED Will. Chicago, Dec. 31. J. Weogghman con firmed the report that Gilmore is con sidering placing a Federal league team in New York next year. "Gillniore is conferring with one of the wealthiest men in New York, who wants to acquire the franchise," said Weeghman. "I understand this man has an option on the old Ebbotts Park in Brooklyn. It is certain that New York will have a Federal league team in 1915." ! JABS AND JOLTS I As we understand it, Cap Anson's pension from the National League will be more or less pleasant smile. The N. L. magnates would bo perfect ly willing to pension Mr. Anson if it could be done without going to any expense. We never have seen a reliability run for motor trucks, but we suspoct that it resembles a fight between two white hopes. It is said that fight fans are willing to back Charlie Whito to the extont of $5000, some of which is regulur money. Indoor golf may be a great little sport, but sounds almost as appropriate as in door cross-country running. If the Japanese army can't fight uiy hotter than Young Togo, tho Yellow I'eril is a delusion nud a falso alarm. STORE CLOSED ALL DAY NEW YEAR'S DAY.
