The paddock tip was Docile, and the plunge on Capt. Brown's filly, which drove her odds from 9 to 2 down to 2 to 1. caused Komombo'a price to recede from S to 5 to 7 to 2.

Everything of a preliminary character Has been settled for the fight to-morrow night beuveen Tounff Corbett and Eddie Hanlon, the local aspirant for dhampionship honors. It was announced at Corbotfs training quarters to-day that the Denverlte is down to weight and that there is no possibility of him tipping over 129 pounds at weighing- in timo to-morrow. Ho is pronounced to be perfectly fit and will not liavo the excuse to offer this time of lack of condition preventing him squelching Hanlon'a ambition, as it did at their previous meeting. At that time the champion put a low estimate on the ability of the little Westerner and slighted his training to such an extent that he barely 1 puiled out of the encounter with a draw j decision. Hanlon Is a lad of steady habits and consequently always In fair trim, and as he does his training conscientiously there are always good reports from his camp. The selection of Graney' as referee today brought out some "deferred bettine- and most of the money was placed at 10 lu 0 lavonte. isoth men .cere on the road this morning doing light work and the afternoon was devoted to some gymnasium exercises. To-night practically finished the training A record-breaking attendance Is looked for by tho managers of the ilght ?uJiam In Jfashville. Nashville. Tenn., Dec. 2S. Special. -Harry Pulliam, president of the National Baseball League, is in Nashville visiting relatives. He came down last week to spend Christmas, but has kept the fact that he was in the city very quiet 3Ir Pulliam, who Is an old newspaper man was at one time connected with local journalism. Discussing baseball matters Mr Pulliam stated positively that he did not tnimc mere would be any change made in the foul strike rule. The American League was in favor of abohshin it but as u majority of those interested in baseball in that league are opposed to it it l more than likely the rule will stand' as It is. Mr. Pulliam left last night for New York, stopping at Louisville and Cincinnati on his way. ' HTCAGO. Dec. 28.-tSpeclal.3-Thc magnates of the American As-da'tfon- held a - record-breaking meeting tlhis afternoon at the Grand Pa-cffic Hotel. J. EH Grillo, sporting editor of the Cinnnati Cxmir.erclal-Tribuno, was unanimously efleoted president of this baseball body tJo succeed T. J. Hickey, who resigned whem the meeting was called to order. While Grillo's election will come in the nature of a surprise to the basebaSl fans throughout the as sociation's circuit, there was no alterna-tlv left for the men who own the ball clubs. George Tobeau favored tho eleo-tron of a Louisville baseball reporter. Messrs. Walk ins and Ruschaupt, of Minneapolis, and India na.poVIs, respect! vely, sought 'tflie election of Ben D. Crose and Ed Bingham, Indianapolis sporting editors. Charles Havenor, owner of the Mil waukee Club, desired that his pet sport ing editor, Freise, of Qfiiwaukee, be se lected for the place. Other association magnates had their favorites. This matter was discussed In Its various pfaases most of yesterday, and up until 2 o'clock this afternoon, when it was unanimously decided Chat the best thins tio do Was to elect some newspaper man from some city other than those embraced In the American Association's circuit. Ren Mulford, of the Crncinna'tl Enquirer, declined the position for various reasons. Secretary Bernard, of the Cleveland Ciub, who is also' a newspaper man, j declined because the CieveSaind Club in- ! creased his salary in anticipation of this j Job being offered to him. Mr. Grillo was the only other available candidate, and as soon as President HUckey tendered his resignia'tfon. Ml. Grillo was untanimously elected 'to fill the position. The headquarters of the American Associaltion will be changed from Chicago to Cincinnati, but the annual and cither meetings of the body will be held -In this city. Mr. Grillo will retain his position as sporting editor of the CincirmaJci Commercial -Tribune. He is a young man well fitted for tine place, and was Warmly congratulated to-riight ty his newspaier mends. 'Louisville played a very ImporUinJt part in the proceedings of this annual meeting of the associa'taon.. George Strobe! , of Toledo, O., was clectied vice president of the association. The Schedule Committee selected cons-lsts of Watkiiis, of Indianapolis; Bryce, of Columbus, and Tebeau, of Louisville. It was aiso decided Co appoint a committee on constitution. This committee will look over and re vine tho con stitution of the association in order that the body may be ready for any emergency, especially expansion or oonsolidaitioa. The comml-ctee consists of Thoa A. Barker, the well-known Loulsviile attorney, who Is President Tebeau's legal advise-j Watkins, of Indianapol'is, and Tebeau, of Louisville, The meeting was adjourned ti January 25, when t5ie Schedule Committee and the Committee onConstitution will snake their reports to "the magnates in this city. President Hickey was thanked for his services and was made an. honorary member of tihis association. GriUo s election to-n.giit patched up In a measure the differences which have existed among the association magnates for some time. Haven or, of Milwaukee, and Lennon, of St. Paul, on one side, and Tebeau, Watkiiis and Strobel on the other, constituted two factions which threatened -to cause trouble for baseball In this league. The former magnates are opposed to a consolid'aikm with the Eastern League, for In the event 'of a merger Milwaukee and St. Paul would be left out in the cold. With Grillo elected unanimous! y an d a gen era! han dshaki n g all around, the consolidation proposition faded into the distance, and the chances now are that It will be some time, certainty , a year, before Louisville, Indianapuhy. Columbus and Toledo will join Baltimore, Buffalo and other Eastern cities in a league which promises to rival the two great baseball organizations. To-night ail 'the magnates are happy and enthusiastic over the outlook for next season. As far as Louisville Is concerned, it can be stated Uiat the deal mentioned in the Courier-Journal some time ago for a big league ball player who will manage the Colonels for the next year was practically consummated this afternoon, though the writer Is not as yet at liberty to divulge his name. This man played in the National League last season, and for several seasons before, and was for years one of the most popular members of tho old Louisville National League-Club. His release has been purchased by President Tebeau, who refuses to announce his name until the proper papers have been signed and received in order .to avoid possible complications. Shortstop Schafer, the crack St. Paul player, was to-day tioded to Indianapolis for O'Brien. Schafer will play seco:;d base for the Hoosiers In place of Fox, who will go to Minneapolis to manage Watkins' new team, Hess, a Three I League player, has bi'tn signed to play at short for 'the Hoosiers. Toledo to-day traded Catcher Klelnow to Clark Griffith, of the New York American League team, for Pitcher Deering. "Watkins and Cantillon, of Milwaukee, are having a row over the services of First Baseman Dickey, of the Rock Island Club, both claiming to have signed him. Cantillon says that if he gets Dickey this will complete his team. Watkins will go to Indianapolis with Ruschaupt In the morning to complete the transfer of Fox '. to Minneapolis. j While the American Association mag nates announced that they favored the retention 01 tne roui-striKe rule, they took no official action regarding this measure to-day. This matter was postponed until the meeting on January 25, when it is likely that they will make no change from last season. Roy Brashear. the crack second base man of the Louisville team, ran down from his home In far-away Iowa to at tend the meeting. He is In splendid shape and predicts a successful season for the Colonels next year. Charlie Dexter, the ex-Colonel, was among the throng of ball players In the lobby during the meeting and expressed a desire to .play ball in the Fails City. George Tebeau, owner of the Louisville Club, announced to-night that Secretary Nat S. Wilbur will not be with the Colonels next year. Mr. Wilbur will be secretary and treasurer of the Kansas City Club, which is also owned by Mr. Tebeau. The latter says that Mr. Wilbur has purchased a block of stock in the Kansas City Club and that hereafter Wilbur will be the moving spirit In that organization. Dalo Gear will contlnile to manage the teami Mr. Wilbur has made his home in Louisville for the past two years and he has made many friends. He is an expert abstract man, having been County Clerk of Denver at one time. During the winter months he works for Sullivan &. Barker, the Louisville lawyers. He will assume his new duties at Kansas City about April 2. WILL W. DOUGLAS. CHANGES To Be Recomniendad For Indiana Reformatory- SUPT. WHITTAKER BELIEVES EXISTING SYSTEM HAS MANY GMEVOTTS DEFECTS.' HOPES TO SECURE REVISION. Shortly aSter the begtaninif of the irew year Supt. W. H. "WWttalcer and Vhe Board of 'Managers of the Indiana Reformatory in JeffersanvHle Will take up the question of revising Hie rules that are now In force. Swpt- Wliittak-er believes at least some of them should be changed, but mamy of them will be allowed to remain as they are. Tlhe maintenance account Is one that Supt. Wnlbtaker believes sfhouid be changed. It Is Us oellef that the system of fines and payment for good be havior should be so changed -that an Irareaite wHI have cash, deposited to Mb credit, and from tihis tlhe aimourtts as sessed aigalnst him far misbehavior should be deducted. Before an Inmate can be released on parole he must have to Wis credit at least 525. This Is used to pay for his dothlng when he leaves, his railroad fare to the point he secures employment and a small sum to assist him until his first pay day arrives. No matter how .perfect the conduct of an inmate has been he can not have more than $25 to his credit, but he can have a great deal less, wJiidh, of course, keeps Wm dn prison that much longer. When a prisoner arrives he is given one outfit free, but .after that he must pay for what he gets. -Men ill tflie first grade are allowed fifty-five cents per day for their services; fifty for the second grade and forty-five for the third. According to their grades they are charged forty-five, forty and thirty-seven cents a day for their board and clothes, which, makes it possible for the first and second grade men to earn ten cents a day clear, and tiie third grade men eight cents, but there are generally little incidentals that keep the amount lower. A change in the color of ttie garments now worn is also to be considered, but lit is not Hkely any modification Willi be made. The first gradae men wear oZotihtag of a blue gray .color; the second grade men haav light gray and wflilte checks, while the third grade inmates wear clothing of black with white stripes. There are generally about thirty men in the -tihlrd grade and when a neiw man gets in he Is put in the second class. This Supt Yvihittaker believes is degrading without cause, and his idea is to do away with the stripes entirely, and let the new-comers work In the first grade In the beginning, and If he Is found unworthy ,to reduce him to the second grade for a new s'tort. Supt. Whlttaker also believes there are fleiaitures in the Indeterminate sentence law that should be changed, chief of which is taiat a man returned on' a new conviction, should have to serve a longer minimum sentence.! than on his first conviction. In such cases tne Board of Managers generally requires second timers to serve a longer minimum term than on their first conviction, but Supt. Whrfttalter believes this is a question the Judiciary of Indi ana should have control over Instead of the board. -GREAT- SALE Furniture, Carpels, Curtains, Interior Decorations and Houscfvrnishings The opportunity of a lifetime to furnish, your home at a substantial saving.
