Farmers living in the east range of townships ot Claycounty are now given to understand that an electric railway from Sioux City to Sioux Falls by way of Elk Point and Beresford is one of the good things in store tor them within tuc uexl yeai or two. Interest In the project i already at a high tension and it will be no trouble for agents to secure right-of-way.

In fact, a right-of-way Is now beint secured and practically all the land necessary from Kioux City to Beresford has already boon promised. The town of Beresford, to encourage the promoters, hua guaranteed to secure a right-of-way for three miles south and three miles north of that town. Theie Is enthusiasm all along the line and if the right-of-way between Sioux City and Sioux Falls is all that is needed to insure the building of an electric railway the line Is as good as built.

HUES TO 11AVK MEMBKRS 1'KNAI 1ZED FOR ATTEMPTS TO VOTES. (Special to The Tri'juna) PIERRE, S. Feb. 5. The anti-lobby bill was in peril for a time yesterday, through the attempt of Eastman to inject Into It a section which penalized any attempt of members of the legislature who traded votes on any bill or measure which is vreseuted to the session.

The bill was up on concurrence with senate amendments and Eastman attempted to get in his amendment, which was too late in the progress ot the bill. The first vote on the concurrence failed by a lack of a majority, and a long parliamentary wrangle was required to se- curo reconsideration In which one phrase of it nearly carried the whole bill the table, but after the tangle was Btralghtcned up, amendments were concurred In by a vote of 60 to IS. Satre attempted to force for today a report of the Judiciary committee on his bill to make the office of supreme-court clerk a salaried one and secured a favorable vote on his motion to that effect after a statement had been made by the chairman of the committee that they would get around with it as soon as possible. The bouse passed bills for supplying the state law library with books and regulating' the organization of county fair associations to allow county aid. Two more bills affecting railroads were introduced In the house, one fixing the minimum strength of a passejiger train crew, the other to enlarge the powers of the railroad commission.

The senate held a short sessiion, passing a bill fixing- (he qualifications for ad mission to the state law school, and in troduced a number of bills, among them one limiting the Jurisdiction in libel suits against newspapers to the county In which the paper is published.

Some time ago Tim McGrath was very busy trying to arrange a match between Hack and James Jeffries for the pugilistic championship. There was a time when the Russian Hon seemed to be the most logical opponent for the 'big farmer and nothing bag happened to change ideas his fitness for the job. It is a sure 'thing that when Hack lands there will be propositions made for a meeting, and it Is almost as sure that with the proper Inducement Jeft would put up the plow long enough to give him battle. As long as Jeff has said that he would defend the title if there was any chancs of its being taken out of America, and on occasions Hackcnschmldt has intimated thait he could beat the biggest marl in the world at any old game of kiir, strength and Whilo no recent offers have been announced for a meeting between the big Russian and Jeff, it is a cinch that such offers will be made before he is long in thU country if, indeed, they are not made before ha Falls. As natter of fact.

Hack will not bave to take on Jeff, though, if be is n'ter American dollars at his own game ot grappling. There one Joe Rogers, who has been doing stunts under the Superstitious Bowlers Are the Freakiest of All Men By John R. Butman, 1634 Marquette Bldg. TRIBw NEWS BU3EATJ. CHICAGO.

WAR ON BOOKMAKERS ARRESTS ARE MADE SPRINGS. AT HOT As Soon as One Bookie Is Taken in by Police, Another Replaces Him at Stand Race Meeting Was Declared Off. HOT SPRINGS, Feb.

5. The opening of Oaklawn track yesterday afternoon was followed by rapid development. Constable Smith was on band with fifty deputies and as soon as the bookmakers began to make bets, orrosts were made. After arresting five bookmakers and their clerks, Mr. Smith desisted until the fifth race, when another arrest was made.

As soon as the bookmakers were arrested, they were replaced by others and orders were posted and bets taken by five books on all ot the six races. It Is understood that Constable Smith will follow the same policy today and each day thereafter until the meeting comes to an end or until the chancery court rules against them. With the announcement that the Amis anti-pool selling bill had passed the senate, the prevailing opinion is that the meeting will be declared off before the end of the week. Pint Race la a Tie.

(Special to The Tribune.) MADISON, Feb. 5. The faculty ot the Wisconsin University Inst night ratified the new big four football agreement recently entered into by represen-tftives of the Badger institution with Chicago, Minnesota and Michigan. There was considerable discussion of the proposition, but after Dr. Fred J.

Turner Rnd Dr. C. P. Hutchins, the Wisconsin representatives at the conference, explained the situation and gave their reasons for believing the agreement was a good thing for the Badgers, the matter had smooth sailing. President Van Hise favored the agreement.

There is general satisfaction among the students over the action of the faculty as it means the restoration of Wisconsin to Its old place in football circles of the middle west, assures a big game with Minnesota this year and two big games next year. Wisconsin hopes that Michigan will soon realize the desirability of rectifying the agreement. From the reports around the circuit the association appears to be In line for a successful season. Kawvllle fans are a little doubtfuC but it is to be hoped that Tebeau will come around with a good team before the time for play it on. The appointment of Steve Kane as umpire by O'Brien will not meet with approval here and It seems that some better man could have been chosen.

We will try to do our best, however, to get along with Kane, and trust that he will have a better season than last. It is about time for the baseball can didates at the university to come out of the woods and start business for 1907. Many good games have been scheduled and the Gophers must go some to defeat the other teams of the Big Nine. A week ago we published something about slang in baseball.

Hurray for the two Jims! see Mort Singer, our old friend of the Dewey, and the hero of many a wrestling match k(cker, Is here with his "Time, Place and the Girl" at' the Metropolitan this week. Mort has been going some since he went to Chicago and is now in big league form. Mike Cantlllon is booked for a visit to this city In the near future and then we will get a little news. Michael has been busy settling up his business at Des Moines and from this time on will give his attention to the Reds. i Here is what one of the Columbus critics says of the pitchers of the association: "There ought to be some good pitchers in the American association this season.

This, of course, would Indicate as well a shrinking of the list of .300 hitters. More attention has been paid to strengthening pitching staffs this winter than ever before, and some good talent has been lined up. Louisville has come out with a definite announcement of her staff In Elliott Kenna, Stovall, Puttmann and Moskiman Sticking to that staff alone, and making four of them do the brunt of the work when right, ought to produce results. Columbus, of course, will have a strong list. Columbus fans know about that all and are sure that it will compare favorably with any in the league.

Milwaukee and Minneapolis are fairly well supplied. If Oberlln comes back to the Brewers, and Joe Cantlllcn hands over one more good'one to Brother Mike, the Miller staff will also be stellar. Kansas City and Indianapolis are the weak ap pearing sisters, although they have a gtaff of good class if the slabmen are properly supported. There is every indl cation that there will be some tall twlrl- ers' battles as these different staffs measure their strength when the heat of the battle Is on." Frank Oberlln, lat yoor with Milwaukee, booked for Boston Americans this season, Is the strange case of a pitcher who was a very mediocre performer until he lost the forefinger of his twirling 'hand. E.

G. Trent of Waterloo, who brought out Oberlln, la responsible for the Information. Mr. Trent managed an independent team at Waterloo several years ago, and among his players was Oberlln, who showed very little promise. He was about due for a release when he was unfortunate enough to flirt with a buzz saw that clipped oft the Initial linger on his heaving hand.

Oberlln did not pitch any more that season, but he came back for a trial the next year. Through sympathy more than anything ebe Trent gave him a chance, and before long he was the main box de pendence of the club. So good did Oberlln become that he didn't stay tn that company long, and he went up rapidly, going to Pittsburg last winter. Dreyfus sent him to Milwaukee for seasoning, and now he li back In the "big nolne," probably to stay." Exchange. STAB BADGER ATHLETE NOW ACADEMY COACH MILWALTIEB.

This same chap Rogers has been mentioned as a possible opponent for Jeffries, and there is just a chance that he will convince the promoters of the Far West that he is worthy of consideration. He is a whale, and, in addition to being a wreatler of very decided ability, knows a whole lot about the more strenuous game of the mltits.

His most recent conquests have been in Canada, where cleaned up with all the hig mat nrtlsts, and those who have followed his career and have the dope on him proclaim his aspiration to tho heavyweight title, bofili on the mat and in the ring, as being well founded. Rogers has intended sailing for England to try to secure a match with Hackenschmidt, but now that there is a chance of the Russian coming here ho has decided to remain in this country. It was Hackenschmidt who first gave him the notion of becoming a professional wrestler. Two years ago Rogers gave the Russian a hard tussle, in a training bout, and after it was over the lion told him that witdi proper training he should beat any man in America, and possibly any in the world. Rogers has taken the advice and feels that be is just about to a condition when the-championship is not only possible, but probable.

never attempt it again. For three years, in championships and everything else, he ducked bowling shoes, until finally he lost a match on the last shot, the break coming In the last frame of the eleventh and final game. He was going down to the foul line, and slid over about an inch. A foul was called, and he lost the count. Perhaps one of the most superstitious bowlers in the country Is a Westerner, who Is "always in the money," so to speak.

He is a tournament bowler pure and simple, for tine reason that he can not shoot well when his opponent or any one else Is talking to him. But, not long ago, this pet superstition was shot full of holes, owing to) a "kidding" match which brought his anger to a fever beat while he was shooting In a tournament. A friend who also was entered in the event had finished and it was the superstitious one's turn. He was rolling in the Individuals and It so happened that his friend, who had been discussing politics with a barkeep, was asked to go on the foul line right in front of the bowler. He did, and, every time the man shooting came down to the foul line the man on the foul line accused him of going over.

This caused "Mr. Superstitious Sam" to become angry, and they fought a verbal battle back and forth. It semed to Improve the work of the bowler, for (he finished his three games with a mark ot 647, which placed htm at the top of the day. Later tn the day he met his friend who was on the foul line and after adjourning he confessed that he was "so mad that It must have killed off the superstition." But it still clings to him, and he can't shoot worth a rap when a gabfest Is tn session. the exhibition.

That started hit finish, and every time he got a bad cpllt after that he accused his opponent of "crossing his fingers on the and he was beaten badly, even before the match was near the end. There Is a Western bowler, a conspicuous figure at all the national tournaments, and who also always is In the front rank in the city championships at Chicago, who at one time was one ot the most superstitious shooters in the business. This bowler really began his good shooting in the national tournament at Buffalo several years ago, and it was there that he became Infected with the microbe.

He was playing in a match outside the tournament, and appeared attired in street shoes. He slipped all over the alley, but hit the plna and won the match by good rolling.
