Vhe stable of H. S. Johnson has arrived at New nSfanl ft0I5. Nashville. Among the bunch are t-ella Barr, Tremor and other good ones. There is every prospect of a turf war between the Memphis and Nashville tracks this season and it is by no means certain that It will end In merely a war of dates or words. A small fortune was won by Jockey Enos, who rode Devereux, the 100 to 1 shot, to victory at Oakland Wednesday. Before the race Enos placed a ten dollar note on his mount. Chicago and New Orleans will be visited by Ed Corrigan and Jockey Jed Waldo before they soil for England, as the former Is anxious to see how bis interests in those two cities are getting along. W. B. Jennings now leads in the list of winning owners at 'Frisco with the neat sum of Slo.535. Burns & Waterhouse are next with $11,-130, while Sam Hildreth's breadwinners have to their credit $9,520. The grand old black mare Imp will go east early in the spring and take part in another season s campaign. She is still sound and fit for hard work, but will be In charge of Peter wimmer instead of being handled by Brossnian. There were very few changes in the position of Jockey3 at 'Frisco last week. The most notable one was the capturing of first place from Coburn by Mounce, who Is riding in splendid form. Coburn is second, Dominick third and O'Connor fourth. Although the presence in the saddle of Jockey Cobnrn Is sadly needed at San Francisco, he will he taken to New Orleans next week to ride there. Coburn's work in the west has been above reproach and he Is fast ftrglng to the front as one of the leaders in bis line. It is not unlikely that Jockey Rigby, who rode with such marked success across the foam and who is now at New Orleans with his wife, will be seen on the Crescent City track. He has received a snug offer from Col. Pepper and now has the proposition under consideration. Among well-informed horsemen it is not considered! probable that Sam Loatcs, the English Jockey, will be seen in the saddle on this side of the water, as Loates lias frequently visited this country before while on a vacation, but does not make a practice of accepting mounts. Lester Reiff, who is at present in San Francisco, has not gone there for the purpose of accepting mounts or for his health. The popular little fellow Is thinking seriously of taking to himself a wife and wants to purchase a house and lot In 'Frisco, where he intends to settle down after a while. The first of the great western specials for 3-year-olds, to be run at New Orleans in the latter part of March, presumably about the 2atli, will be the best race for 3-year-olds a New Orleans crowd has ever seen, If half the good colts and Allies named six weeks ago for the event go to the post. The June meeting of the Coney Island Jockey club will begin about the middle of June and continue until July 4, If the club follows its usual custom in the allotment of dates, and the. autumnal session will commence some time In August about the 25th and continued through tho remainder of the month and until September 10. Jake Holtman and Dick Dwyer will work alternately every two weeks as starters at the Fair Grounds, St. Louis, next year. They work under the same arrangement at Chicago, Dwyer officiating at Harlem while Holtman sends them off at Hawthorne. Tho Fair Grounds would prefer to have Dwyer for the entire season, but Harlem has first call. Owing to tho fact that only a few bids were received for Charley Herr, his owner, David CahllL says he will not part with the fast trotter. It will be remembered that Cahill advertised some time since thtt the horse was for sale and that he was open to receive sealed bids, the highest bidder to sret him. the: ring. Dobba and Asbe Drew. Memphis. January 3. Bobby Dobbs, who won the lightweight championship of England bj- defeating Dick Bnrge, and Kid Ashe, ot Cincinnati, met before the Phoenix Athletic Club to-night and fought twenty fast rounds to a draw. A wrestling match between Louis Baptlste, of St. Louis, and Eddie Donnelly, of Boston, was declared a draw. PCGILISTIC FOISTS. Mlk Donovan, of Rochester, has been matched to meet Billy Edwarde. of Australia, at Wheeling, on January 7 In a 20-round affair. K!d Parker's name Is now signed to a column of fight talk In a Denver paper, but the name of. the author is naturally withheld. " Hiving gained a few pounds In ' the last six months, Harry Forbes thinks lie will be in hotter condition to fight and will enter tho .ring . again. Hot Springs, Ark., will be the scene of an Interesting fight on January 14. when Casper Leon and George Monroe will clash in a 20-round contest. Otto Sleloff and Rufe Turner will meet In the squared circle at Denver this evening. Before leaving Chicago, Sieloff said he was sure hs would win. Young Mowatt. the - street car conductor of Chicago, would like to meet Benny Yanger, now that MoGovem refuses, while Tommy Hogan has aUo Issued a challenge to the banana, peddler. Labor unions are knocking the big fight In Cincinnati, now that the ministers have been called off. because the building whore the bout will take place was constructed by non-union labor. Billy Brady denies the report that the big fight between Jeffries and Ruhlln would be postponed until a future date. "The fight will tke place February 15," says Brady, "and no change will be made." Johnny Dunn, manager of Matty Matthews, Is not to be suppressed end is making a stab at playing a part in the sketch "Mr. Coney's Isle," the piece that Matty is starring in through the New England states. AH arrangements have been completed for the coming contest between Oscar Gardner and Tim Callahan, of Philadelphia, which is booked to take place before Gardner's club at Wheeling the first week In February. Jimmy Barny. entertains thoughts of entering the ring again, despite the fact that he announced his retirement a year ago. He is at present considering an offer from a Louisville club to fight Tommy Feltz. of Brooklyn. There Is a very poor chance of Gov.-elect OdeP, of New York, giving his consent to allow boxing In that state, and the Gotham sports, realizing this, are already preparing to pull off skin-tight glove contests in out-of-the-way places. Word comes from South Africa that George Gardiner has signed articles to meet Tcm Dugan, of Australia, within a month's time. Jack Everhardt, who Is with Gardiner. Is also matched to fight a boxer named Lalor on the same evening. Young Mahonay declares that he made the best fliht lie was capable of when he met Mysterious Billy Smith in Paterson. and charges the referee with calling the bout a fake because the club needed money and the purse could be saved in that way. ....

DETROIT MEN AFTER AN INTEREST IN THE WASHINGTON CLUB. They don't say anything for publication these magnates of the mysterious meln seldom do but they make the common error of taking Into their confidence men who are prone to talk, like the parrot, too much. Through such avenues the news comes .to light and an Interested public 'is kept Informed, to a certain extent, of the moves made and in contemplation in the baseball world. Ban Johnson, ptesident of the American League, was in Detroit yesterday, and before he departed for Chicago on a late train a few facts had been evolved through tho favored few who gathered In the star chamber sessions tried to keep secret the fact of their meetings. No mistakes are to be made by the American League if a light is precipitated before the coming campaign on the diamond is Inaugurated. Experiences of the nast will ho nroftted by. and It will be a united front that Is presented to the i enemy If It becomes necessary to take to the j neia. wnen tney go into the struggle it win oe to win a glorious victory or go down together In defeat. No desertions can be looked for, as the owners of the various clubs have signed a compact thnt binds them closer together than ever, and they will stick together to thd bitter end, once war Is forced upon them. All bridges will be burned behind as the advance Is made, meaning a sink or swim policy, and those who know the American League ir.en do not believe that they will sink. President Hums, of tho Detroit flub, affixed his signature to tlie papers yesterday and there remain but two names to be added to make It complete. This Is nof a threat and le not to be flaunted in the faces of the National Ltaguo leaders, but is simply a precautionary measure, as President Johnson is a firm believer that in time of peace jneii should prepare for war. Attorney Thomas J. Navin, of this city, is ambitious to become a baseball magnate. He had a linger in tho rival league pio last winter and after the phantom association passed in Its cheeks he was a bidder for the Detroit club that Burns & Slallings secured. During the past fall he negotiated for the Detroit and Buffalo clubs without getting a satisfactory price named, and this winter he fathered the idea of a new league, with Toledo and a sueonci club in Detroit as part of 'the circuit. Finding that there was no prospect of getting permission to locate a second club here, Mr. Navin set out to get an Interest In an American Leaguo club, with Washington his' choice. Jimmy Manning is willing to take a partner In such a big deal. He has had a talk with Navin about It, and Ban Johnson also talked the matter over with the Detroit attorney. It Is said that McMillan money will figure In the deal. If one Is made, and It is pointed out that with Senator McMillan proctlcally mayor of Washington, it will be a great thing for Manning to be associated in baseball with one of the senator's lieutenants. President Johnson said positively last night that a deal had not been closed, but it appears likely that Detroit capital and Detroit men will break into the game through the medium of the Washington club, If nothing goes auitss. Gecrgc Burliham says the Western Association will be a go. all rumors to tho contrary notwithstanding, but It was noticed that the others failed to enthuse over tbe subject to any extept. It is certain there will be no club here, and embryo magnates do not care to invest their money in a fight - In cities like St. Paul and Minneapolis. Boston might be added to the American League circuit, thus leaving both Indianapolis and Buffalo out. but It Is said that Arthur Irwin wlU not be accepted by the American League, bo new backers must come to light there before there Is danger of invading that city. Regarding the report that Rusie will Join an American League club, President Johnson said he knew nothing of Buch a plan, and does not expect to see the big pitcher in thlB circuit. It Is generally understood that Cincinnati will get Rusie. and that is where President Johnson thinks he will play the coming season. A meeting of the American Leaguo magnates will be held about the middle of the present month, possibly in Philadelphia.' 'at. which time some plans will cqWe to light that will cause tbe National League people to do some tall hustling. BASEBALL BRIEFS. Eleven years a slab artist is what Pitcher Nichols can boast of. He has been twirling the sphere since 18S9, and expects to be as good as ever this year. The baseball candidates at Ann Arbor will not b-gln practice be'fore the first of March. Ail ot the out and Infield players of last year have returned to college, but the team la weak In material for batteries. The mark of sanction and approval was stamped on Fred Pfeffer's prospective baseball school by tbe visiting magnates in Chicago, and quite a number will rely on Pfcffer to furnish numerous young players during the season. , Baseball practice has commenced at the University of Chicago, and every day the candidates can be seen working In the gymnasium. They are confident they will make a better record for themselves than did the football eleven. Col, Rogers is quoted as saying that the American League club owners are working night and day to perfect their organization. Rogers is net resting any too easily in Philadelphia, as outward appearances in this case amount to little. Muggsv MeGraw is back In Baltimore from New York and denies the report that he Is considering an offer from President Freedman to manege the New York team. He has no intention of deserting the American League, and Is confident of its success. , Ted Sullivan, the baseball promoter, will leave Chicago to-day for the northern part of Wisconsin for the purpose of perfecting his Northwestern Baseball Association. Among the cities Included In this league are Ashland, Duluth and Eati Claire. While In Chicago, Director Baird, of the Unl-versltv of Michigan, paid a visit to Charley Coiu-iskey'and invited the manager of the White Stockings to play a series of practice games with the U. of M. team at Ann Arbor in the spring. Ccmiskey said he would think the matter over. From Indianapolis comes a report that Amos Rusie will sign with an American Leaguo club in case President Freedman refuses to release hlra This announcement creates little surprise, as Jimmy McAleer has bee trying for over a roar to land the premier twlrler for the Cleveland club. One of the National League magnates to predict success for Hlekey's Western League is Jim Hart Hart savs that Hlckey will have smooth ailing through the season, and will be as strong as the American League next year. Hart also predicts the speedy dissolution of the new Western Association. It is rumored that the Robison brothers, Frank De Haas and Stanley, are to lose control of the .St Louis club. It Is said that tho mortgages amounting to .$100,000 will be foreclosed and thai grounds, players and franchise will pass Into the hands of new managers, said to be the men who, advanced the money to straighten out the affairs of the club at the end of last season. HOCKEY. Windsor and Walkerville Teams in; Line. The Windsor hockey league has arranged dates for games during the winter months. Four teams will be in the league, ana a trophy will be offered to the winners of the series.

Bill Maloney, captain of the maroon track team, and Ms brotner, Fred Maloney, the r eraflk hurdler and relay man, have been barred temporarily from taking part in any games because they are behind In their studies. The temporary lack of these two powerful athletes may prove a serious drawback to Stagg's team. Although the University of Pennsylvania has lost In the graduation of Kraenzlein a wonderful athlete as well ts good point gainer In the Intercollegiate championships, his place will be filled In the championships by J. K. Baxter. Baxter Is a pole vaulter and high Jumper, who In the Paris games showed up cleverly a little be hind Kraenzlein In the number of events won. T IN THE DOMINION. ..,, Costly New Year's Celebration. Duncan Hancock and Arzaue Meloche, two young farmers of Sandwich West, appeared In Police Court yesterday, charged with doing about $75 damage to Moses Gllboe's hotel bar In Sandwich West on New Year's day.

THEY SAY THE PRACTICE IS BECOMING A BURDEN. Good Dressers. Slay Soon Have to Pay Fall Rates. At the annual meeting of the. Detroit Merchant Tailors' Exchange, which followed the annual banquet. in the Russell House ordinary last evening, the following officers were elected for the coming year: President, Charles F. Moll; vice-president, Frank A. Lyon; secretary, Samuel Smitt; assistant secretary, George W. Renchard; treasurer, Richard F. Hoy. The dinner, presided over by the retiring president, Charles E. Fox. was a complete affair and was enjoyed by all who partook of it. The year just closed has been more than usually prosperous. iiany of the patrons of these organized tailors, and particularly the younger element, will be pained to learn that a movement is on foot to abolish the practice, which has become practically universal among the principal tailors, of pressing the suits and overcoats of their customers. How this practice began here-is somewhat of a mystery. But once the seed was sown by one man it developed with rapidity until all fell into line. Probably not one, except the introducer, who was seeking to create more trade by this means, willingly adopted the plan, but as it became evident that the custom was being placed in greatest amount where the pressing was free of charge, they were compelled to imitate the rest. Said a prominent tailor lasc evening: "I maintain one man in my store and two outside, .who devote a large part of their time to pressing and lightly cleaning the clothiner of mv customers. 1 oav them the journeymen's wages of $16 per week, or J48 for the three, in tne course oi a year, though I have never figured it out, this free pressing costs me a large amount of money, with practically no return, as compared with the old days where every customer paid 1 per suit for the worjt. "I would not object so hard had the thing not become such an abuse. One customer directed me to send out to his house every week for his clothing, to be cleaned and pressed and repaired, just as though I were running a dyeing, cleaning and repair shop, except that the latter 'gets pay for its work. And others will have a suit of clothes pressed three times a week. In every case they expect me to carry the clothing back and forth, where it is kept at home. Were some of my customers to pay the regular rates l or the work their bills with me would amount to $3 a week and more." i ue exchange secretary now has an agreement to abolish the custom entirely, to which some signatures have been obtained. Bui as the vote must be unanimous to suc.'tL'J, and as several have ignored it thus far, the fears of impecunious but fastidious young men will be allayed for prob ably several weeks to come. it was decided at one meeting io uae efforts to secure the membership of several tailoring Arms who would make desirable members.
