KrwKP5 , ' THE DETROIT JPKEJS JPKJttWS: - qjafcUtpAX,- iMKjam.asuB, - "y. K r-. t-g CBTINCr FACTS POT x7GE S .rZACKSQIL At no time during the discussion of ilio Fittsburg-Detroit matter has this jiaper been cruel enough to suggest that the hustling Mr. 'Pedder was interested In American League baseball only because of the money, that he might make in the deal that w6uld throw on the hands of the Pittsburg i-romoters the Clark estate, the 'proposed home of, the as yet non-existent ciub. It remained for one of Mr. i oddcr's friends to do this. Will Locke, , :' the Pittsburg Press, speaking of the j ittsburg delegation at the American Li-ague meeting says: -the application of the Pittsburg .rnmoters is represented by a real ; vtato agent who Is naturally ;and ,i .-.u-rly looking for his commission ;!. ! by a man (Eagle) whose name does i appear in the Pittsburg' directory, -.'his delegation does not look quite . : :.iugh to serve as the representatives i-:' the millionaires who are supposed . be behind the movement." It is a very odd thing that boxers v.iil work for almost nothing in Phil-;i klphia and in some other eastern liiit-s, will box for very small purses in I'hicago. and will, in the face of x-.se facts, ask enormous and out-n.seous prices to appear before audiences in cities that hold shows less ir-queatly than do the places named. ; illicit is one of the hard luck towns in mind. Last year Joe Gans was anx-i ..us to appear m this city, and the Usui. -s iliat he named were only less da- -.. ssing to the Twentieth Century club than those quoted by Frank Erne. La3t w.ilc Uans boxed with Howard Wilson !.. ten- the Scituate A. C, whose arena ; i. ear Providence. The purse agreed , n was JSOO, of itself an exceedingly i: 14 in bid for a champion. There was :.si $15 in the house, according to authentic Providence advices;" and the v-ii had posted no forfeit of any kind. Uaus, who would doubtless refuse to 1 filler less than $2,000 td come here, v.eiit in and whaled Mr. Wilson just a suon as the hat had gone round and iae amount in sight had thus been m,-cr-ased to $200. On New War's Day ho wi:l light CJus Gardner at New Britain. After that he will probably go abroad ::. the hope of winning soineJeal moc-tj by his ring performances. f The later the day, the more signlfl-aat becomes Hanlon'sc remark that .liiimore may be in fast company xt season. Whether he' figures it in ,.. a possible Brooklyn transfer, or on m impossible twelve-club league, has . a yet been learned. In Baltimore a hi days ago there was a meeting of stockholders' of the Baltimore ;.iieball and Exhibition Company, i.iih controlled the old American .v.iiiue club, and Mr. Hanlon was. the v.tn-l conspicuous figure of the gather-:.g. though in no way interested, ttn-i -daily, in the company.- Thei confer-: e was secre't. and lasted several ars. Those who participated refused 0 .-ay what was done, or how Hanlon. Igared in. The one thing that was ann-d was. t$at the sale of the Balti. : baseball property has again been stponed, this time to a date some in - after the Cincinnati peace cou- i i-.ice. This is evidence that Hanlon, .ko most other baseball students, be- - s tl'.at this meeting will be of more, .nance, as fur as settlement of : .lUts-jis, concerned than any other . -ebaatinrjetiiig of the winter. The saddest thing that has been said . : - ut Frank Erne is that he has re- ::.s:dered his determination to quit ,i e ring, and that he is figuring on a bent with Matty Matthews. When ia ne lost to Gans he was discouraged, and when Britt also beat him he began realize that his day was done. That m. 'st of the fighters who have retired ;.:tve later reconsidered their determination surprised no one; but it was g -net-ally believed that Erne, who has ii.eie intelligence 4han most of the ; :gs, would heed his lesson and retire without further set-backs.. It is said, I. .wever, that Erne was one of the half hundred pugilists who challenged iae winner of the Ferns-Matthews go at Pittsburg, and it is also said that Manager Herman, of the Fort Erie e :11b, is willing to stage the mill as a i"' bruary attraction. It is to be hoped tnat this information, which comes Cmm a usually reliable source, is tn-e ri eot. Erne made a good record, but -. procession is by him. He can still Mai a lot of lightweights, and some mon that are heavier than the boys of that di'ision. But the championship is not for him again.

CHRISTMAS DAT CARDS AT BOTH OP ' THE RUNNING COURSES. The Newport race meeting that is expected, by its promoters, to be the entering wedge in the work of separating the .Western Jockey elub from the public support has thus far failed to prove mucH of a success. If is claimed that many of the horses nearly all,' in fact, that have a chance are owned by the controlling interest at the track, though raced under the names of various persons. The support Is gather meager, a $10 bet being a -plunge. Little interest has been taken in the meeting, outside ot Cincinnati, and very few of the newspapers are printing either re? stilts or entries. On Tuesday, the third-day of the meeting, the bad work that has been feared was begun, but was nipped more promptly. It should be stated in credit to the truck, than are some of ""the Jobs at the regular courses. Tom Cromwell, describing the attempted Jobbery, says: Solver, the 2-yoar-old son of Hindoo, which Sidney Bender had around Chicago the past sununer, was entered in the third race as the property of "Buck" McCann, who, until recently, was Mosd Goldblatt's jockey. "Buck" was booked to ride Solver, and on form he looked to be a cinch. The books installed him the choice at 3 to 5. as against Mabel Hurst, the only one ot the contenders who figured to have a chance, they laid 3 to 1. The bookmakers expected that there would be a rush for the Solver money at any kind of price, but the rush didn't materialize, and after some Ave minutes of waiting and shouting "Come on. boys," the price went to 4 to 5 and still there was nothing doing on Solver. Just at post time, however, a couple of dozen of the wisest of the attendants hurried into the betting ring from the paddock and started a plunge on Mabel Hurst. Somebody reported the condition of affairs to the Judges Just as the horses were coming out for the parade to the post. When the horses were passing the stand Judge Creveling called McCann out of the parade and sent him back to the paddock with instructions to get out of his colors In a Jllty and resign the mount to Jockey Mountain. McCann obeyed without protect. Those of the wire brigade who had anything left rustled into the betting ring for a hedge by playing Solver. This colt went to the post at 7 to 10, and Mountain brought him home on the bit a length and a half in front of Mabel Hurst" Saa Sam Wou All tbe Way.' San Francisco, December 24. The handicap at six furlongs was the feature at lngleslde to-day. A field c-f four went to the post, with Kenilworth favorite at 3. to 2.

Detroit college and the Seldens played a tie game ot Indoor football last night at the Detroit horse exchange before a crowd of about 200 rooters. The halves were fifteen minutes each. .The game. took place on an abbrcviatedi gridiron, which meas ured only thirty-five yards. In view of this fact the officials' agreed that a touchdown would not be counted until one team bad crossed the 35-yard line three times. The college boys turned the trick, twice and the Seldena once, there being no score. The game was for blood, and frequently mass plays collided with the side of the building, threatening life and limb. There Tfas only one mishap, C. Symington, of the Seldens. having his shoulder partially dislocated in a scrimmage. Comrades pulled it back again and he took part in a couple of scrimmages afterwards, but later withdrew.

The college team was lighter than its opponents, who braced UP in the last half of the game. The officials were P. Carey and Ned Warner. Previous to tbe game the Deltas and Spartans played two 15-minute halves, resulting in a score of 6 to 2 in favor of the latter. This Is the first time the Deltas have been defeated in two years.

WILL PROBABLY CLOSE WITH THE OFFER MADE BY HcGRAW. BEN SHORE DENIES THE STORIES OF PITTSBURG LEANINGS. Ed' Sievcr and the Detroit baseball cltib, which have been doing a little flirting for several weeks, yesterday bade each other good-bye forever.. It was all over a little raohey matter. The club tendered Siever a contract,but A IJ emit r;:fe;: his chances with the National or with a minor league club. He will close lri a few days, either with the New York National team or with Louisville, of tho American association, from each of which he has a good offer. Siever has been waiting for a local offer ever since the close of the season. Boston National wanted him last fall, but he was advised to pass up the offer, and did so, the Boston team securing Comteitey's left-hander, Piatt, in Siever's stead. Late in the season, Siever injured his arm, in a thirteen inning contest with Waddell, and he was laid off for the balance of the year, though carried on. the pay-roll. He was not signed when the season ended. It was generally supposed that the club was afraid of the Injured arm, though the pitcher claims that it is now as well as ever. Just prior to the American League meeting Mr. Angus saw Siever, and asked him to call on him this week. The call was made yesterday. Siever claims that his Boston offer was. S3,-500, and asked a little less than ithat sum. It is understood that Mr. Angus was unwilling to offer any increase on the pitcher's 1902 stipend, which was $2,40Q. Siever suggested that they split the difference, but the suggestion was not adopted. Why the Club Balked. The club's contention was that Siever, because of the injury to his arm and because of his treatment by the club at the close of the season, with the added 'fact that peace and lopped salaries threaten, should be willing to come back at the money that was being paid when he was Injured. Siever held to the contention that he was worth nothing at all or much more thun he got last year. So the deal was called off. The pitcher Is now In communication with McGraw, who Is at Hot Springs, and who has written him, offering him a berth several times. The fact that Mr. Angus is still dickering for players is an encouraging sign of his intention to have a ball club here in 1903. At the league meeting he spent more time In discussing the prospective strength of his team than in talking about the Pittsburg angle. The Pedder syndicate is still hopeful of getting a franchise, and is handing out assurances, to Plttsburgers that it will be In a position to furnish ' the American brand next season. As a matter of fact, Mr. Pedder Is very much ' up in the air, and does riot know just what to do. When Mr. Angus essayed-to call tho Pittsburg bluff by stating that ho might consider an offer of $100,000 he was exceedingly successful. ."The. amount 'that the Pedder syndicate had prepared to offer was something between. $35,000 and $40,000. The Detroit valuation still has them guessing. Shibe Spoils a Story. Some of the press agents of the Pittsburg syndicate are sending out stories - of. Ben Shibe's visit to the . Smoky City, .'on hla way home from Chicago,' making it appear that the Philadelphia magnate stopped off to investigate the Pittsburg situation, and that from what he saw he was impressed with the idea that Pittsburg should at once succeed Detroit. The true story ot Mr. Shibe's visit Is thus told in one of the Pittsburg papers. 'The honesty of Ben Shibe, president of the Philadelphia Athletics, spoiled what the small colony of American League' sympathizers had framed up for a real American League sensation. Shibe, with Connie Mack and Frank Hough, left the train at Pitta-burg this (Tuesday) morning to get something to eat. Mrs. Hough, who accompanied her husband, proposed a trolley ride around Pittsburg after breakfast, and some local real estate men, who have parks to sell, conceived the idea of making capital out of the- visit of the American League people. Word was conveyed to every newspaper office by messenger that the proposed American League park was to be officially inspected by one authorized by Ban Johnson to pass on Pittsburg's claim. At the request of some local people, Mr. Shibe looked over the Clarke plot, but later was quite angry when told that he had been represented as the agent of Ban Johnson in the matter.

The Star Is already lomlng Bill Clarke as Loftus' successor, and soys: "It the report that Loftus is going to New York Is true, and there Is hardly any room for doubt, President Postal will have to look around for a new manager to run tho Washington team next year.

" FOR A WINDSOR SHOW. "" TERRY FIGURES IN SEMI-WBEKLTf . ESCAPE FROM DEATH. As far as Michigan Is concerned the McGovern-Gorbett boxing bout- Is 'now asdead officially, as it was In reality when Gov. Bliss and Sheriff Dickson, issued the orders that Borrowed the local promoters. The Metropolitan A. C. has not given up all hope of con ducting the bout, but is now banking entirely on the Windsor project. It is believed by the club that assurance, will .be . secured in. a short time that will' warrant it in announcing'ttna transfer of the match to Canadian soil. Manager Considine had a conference last evening with Joe Humphreys, rep resenting Sam Harris, and at its con clusion admitted that a Michigan bout would be ho longer considered. This is the result partially Of the notice that Karris sent out the night previous, that he regarded It as out of the Question tft further consider Detroit, and partially of the fact that Gov. Bliss, whom It had been hoped might be induced to change his mind, has left-the state, making a oeiay tnai woura iuw any chance to get the boys Into the ring at the time soheduleifl, even should the governor; on his return, relent. Louisville cannot handle the bout, even If It gets it, for some time. Despite what has been printed,' the legal proceedings in Kentucky are not yet concluded and will not be for several weeks. This gives the local club an advantage on time, and it believes that thai boxers will consent to meev uhuuv i management if the vyindsor project can be made to look gooa insiae oi iiyr The proper authorities are being Inter viewed. The club will point out tnat ion Erie, similarly located, conducts cmuupiuu-shlp bouts, and will ask permission to do "the same thing. ,i Should .It he round teasioie to noiu uic contest on the other side of the river. It would be necessary to construct an arena of some sort, possibly a frame building that might be used for other bouts of importance. The Armory people will not allow the use of their hall for a big event of this, kind. Construction would add materially to the expense, but the club, having gone thus far would be willing to incur expenses that would hold it to an even break on results for tbe satisfaction of finally presenting to its patronage a bout that had been promised. Neither Corbett nor McQovern IS doing any work, but both boys will remain at their quarters' for a time, probably until they hear from the club on expense money. Not a dollar of the forfeit mOney was posted by the local club, and the boys will depend on the good faith of the club for reimbursement for expenses. This Is likely to figure up to something like si,uw Be fore the boys get througn. Terry had his semi-weekV escape, from death yesterday, running into another break In the. Ice while doing some surface, skimming with .Tommy Brameli. According to the most authentic reports, the boys got waist deep In water, and Brameli suffered a pair of badly barked legs. They went to the Bateman.hut, near Where, the accident occurred, for help, were furnished dry clothing, and returned to, camp belated, but with another good story.. Brameir Is reported to be confined to his bed. This eveningv the fortner champion will come tntn town and will be a guest at the beilrlstmas. dinner "tendered to the "King ot Detectives" company at tne nusseu xiouse. by the show management. This is one of the Sam Harris enterprises. On FfcLflay evening. Terry will again visit town to referee the Metropolitan A. C. bouts. -' iilg-ht Guard Show Flans.
