YESTERDAY'S RACES OFF BECAUSE OF WEATHER Lincoln Day Program Is to Be Blue Ribbon Matinee of the Winter. By ROCHE PBEXEVOST.

Out of respect to John Grimes, whose death occurred early yeBterday morning, the Lake of the Isles Driving club postponed the 2:18 pace and 2:18 trot scheduled for the afternoon. The events will be put on next Saturday. Mr. Grimes was an old member of the club and a former officer. The big Lincoln day matinee tomorrow is to be one of the feature events of the winter.

The affair Is to be the blue ribbon matinee of the season, as the very fastest horses are to start for the prizes. Both' the pace and trot will be free-for-alls, seven horses being entered in the trot and nine in the pace. Not 4a-reeetrt-years have-eimllftKveuls furnlbhed such high class fields. In the trot thero will be Stiver, B. MacLean'B gieat chestnut which won in one of tho open events last year.

Sumner Johnston will also bring out his Hambert. Other top notchers less famous but who have bright futures ahead of them will be heard from in this event. The race will bring out a fine array of steppers. In addition to Prince Stevens, another MacLean flyer, there will be Black Walnut, the recent Importation from Mitchell, 8. which cut a big caper in the last race at the lake, and the good going Goshen Jim.

Black Wal-nuo has great speed and is counted as one of the most important contenders for the top prize. But there are others and there is no telling which pacer Is to carry off the honors. First prizes in both events are handsome silver cups. M. W.

Savage, owner of Dan Patch, is the donor of the trophy In the pace and George C. Sherman has given the cup for the trotters. Watch Charm, Al Gluck's bay mare, has btn awarded last Saturday's 2:12 pace in which Black Walnut, after having been distanced in the third heat, was allowed to start under protest In the heat and again in tte fifth heat. Ilavntt; won three out of the five heats, Black Walnut got first position but the Judges did not to want to pass offhand In the case and left the race undecided pending a ruling from the National association. After looking up the rules It was found that Black Walnut had no right to start after having been distanced and accordingly tha Judges later in the week gave the race to the Gluck horse.

Dr. O. J. Evans, who drove Black Walnut In his race, based his protest on the fact that there had been some unnecessary shouting by the rival drivers. He claimed this frightened his horse and caused the animal to break.

Following are tomorrow's entries: Trot Silver (W. B. MacLean), Hambert (S. S. Johnston), Doc Almont (Clem Morrow), Edith (George E.

Loomis), Mike Wilkes (O. J. Evans). Phil Lock-hart (C. H.

MATTSON WELL TAKE ON ALL COMERS THIS WEEK Carl aMttson, the local heavyweight, will take on all comers at the Dewey this week, the big fellow having signed a contract with the management yesterday. Mattson is fast. coming to the front and with another year's experience should be able to hold his own with the best of them. He will have several hard propositions to go against during the coming week, but the husky Dane says he will be on hand to take ibem as they come regardless of weight, and record. As Gordon is with the police department his duties will prevent him from meeting Mattson.

At this writing the fight trust is In a muddle. As told In last-week's letter, the shareholders are at loggerheads.

NAUGHTON Frisco Clubs Hare Trouble Finding Right Kind of Card for Next Show." mSOS WILL NOT AGREE TO FIGHT JOE GAITS Silly Nolan Has Stated That His Irian Has No Business in Ring With Champion. Uy W. W. (Special Dispatch to The Tribute.) SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 11 Which is the most attractive pugilistic card i0 sight? During the past week this question has been put la numbers of sporting men who are supposed to be thoroughly ported as the "temper of the times," and the reply baa always been the same Joe Cans and Battling Nelson.

When Promoter Jim Coffroth returned from the springs tiia other night be was asked. "I have my opinion as to which Is the 'mot attractive but it is not in sight," was Coffroth's answer. Then he explained: "A match bptween Gans and Nelson would mora- in- terest Just now than an event which had Jeffries for a principal," said Coffroth. 1 "It is an impossible match though, and I'll tell you why. Nolan will prevent Nelson making it.

My information on the subject dates back to the night Jimmy Gardner and Buddy Ryan boxed at Colma. Coming home on the club's spe- rial car Nolan and I sat side by side and the drift of our conversation was about as follows: 'A great fighter Gardner, Isn't he? remarked Nolan. 'A I replied. 'But there's one man who can beat continued Nolan. 'Who do you mean?" 'Joe 'It may be that Gans would have trouble making the weight that Gardner would I ventured.

'Don't ever believe said Battling Nelson's manager. 'Gang can make 133 at any time of the day from the moment he gets up until he puts his foot in tha ring, and at that weight he can lick every white-skinned lightweight in the business "That's the whole story." said Coffroth. "Nolan believed what he said, and still believes it. That is why I think it next to impossible to get Gans and Nelson together." Ben who is Gans' San Francisco agent, was told of Coffroth's remarks, and ho said: "I can give you more pertinent dope than that even. I came over from Sausallto on the ferry with Billy Nolan one day and the talk turned to fighting.

He rattled off the names of the men he thought Nelson could go through llko sunlight through a chink, and then he paused and pondered. 'But there's one fellowr Nelson will never box as long as I have a say in mused Nolan. 'That's Joe Gans. Its poor business to match a man when there'! nothing but defeat staring him in the It may be that Mr. Nolan may deny participation In either incident and I don't know that there is anything about these quotations to cover him with confusion in any case.

"Match well made Is half won" ts a Shakespearean adage and I daresay If the Bard of Avon had thought of It he would have one of his characters say. "Better no match than on which jpromiseg defeal." The moral, if there is one, is that it doesn't do to take too much stock in what the manager of a world famous pugilist says. When he allege that it is the fear of contaminating Influences that deters him from sending his man against a dangerous rival tt may be that he is swayed by entirely different motives. And doesn't It, kind reader, suggest that poor, besmirched Mr. Gans may have been as much sinned against as sinning when he entered Into various shady deals in the past? In the name of all that's Justifiable how was the man to obtain honest work when he encountered sulien, steady, as confront him now in hla Quest for a match with Nelson.

The latest from the coast Is that big Jeffries may be "induced" to re-enter the ring and meet the winner of the Jack O'Brien-Marvin Hart go, which Is scheduled to lake place In 'Frisco around the first of Ayril. It Is very probable that Mr. Jeffries can be "induced to ftattt "onou more" whenever the "inducements'" arc put at what considers a proper figure.

This rule If finally adopted, the football rxperla bellove. rto more than aaythlng else toward opening the game. After yoaterday'a meeting 1iie secretary of the committee, W. T. Reld, of Harvard explained that non of the rulet augKested either yesterday or at the conference two weeki ago, bad lieen finally adopted.

The committee is framing a set of rules covering different point of the game and when tbeae ara completed the rulea will be voted upon. The committee adjourned to meet again Saturday, March 3. la thia city. In addition to agreeing upon the 10-yard rule, tha committee agreed upon the following: That every player on the kicking aide shtsll he on side when tha kicked halt tout hps the ground. That the question of affording proper protection for the men catching the ball be taken up ar.d carefully defined at the next meeting.

That one forward pass shall be allowed on a play provided the ball daeti not. touch the ground before being touched by a player of either side, such a pas to be maile by any man who was behind the line of scrlmmase when the ball was put In play. If the ball touches the ground before being touched by a player of either aide. It shall go to on the opponents on the spot from which tha pass was made. The pass shall not be received by a man who was on the line of scrimmage when the ball waa put in play except for the two men playing on the ends of the line when the ball was put 1n play- A direct lob over the line wlthlp the space of five yards on each aide of the center shall be unlawful.

Nothing was done with regard to the question of a field laboratory but Paul Dashiel, on behalf of Annapolis offered the naval academy field and its facilities for the use by the committee in the matter. The report of the sub-committee appointed to formulate suggestions relative to the formation of a permanent board of officials was received and it was agreed to make It public with a view to receiving suggestions from persons Interested In the game, every member of the committee being asked to Invite criticisms of the plan. The sub-committee's recom mendations are that a central governing committee of thru or five be appointed as a of the Intercollegiate rules body to constitute a national committee or officials. In addition to this committee it is pro posed that sectional committees of three each be appointed to represent the dif ferent geological sections of the country or separate league groups. A salaried secretary is oronosed to attend to the executive and clerical details of the committees.

All universities and colleges accepting the provisions of the rules com mittee prior to the fall of 1906 are to submit lists of all college men whom they consider desirable and competent game officials. This list is to be carefully investigated by the national and sectional oommlttees and a general official an nouncement will be issued containing a comulete list of officials declared competent by the central committee wlti appropriate addresses. The various games scheduled during the season are to be subdivided in order of collegiate importance to determine the remuneration of officials. There are to be four classes, tha remuneration grading as follows: $100, $u0, J25 and $10. Colleges and universities will be re-ouested to select officials from the list Bgreod udod.

Reports will be received as to the class of work rendered by the different officials and complete records kept. Some chances in the rules agreed upon at the last conference were made. To prevent piling up it was agreed that the ball shell be considered dead when any portion of the person of the runner with the ball, excent his hands or foot touch the ground when in the grasp of an opponent. Either cantain may ask that time be taken off three timen during each half without a penalty. If thereafter either captain reoucsts that time be called, his side shall be penalized by a loss of two yards for each rennest.

SLIDING SCALE WHICH WOULD BE FAIR TO ALL If Batter Is in Hole Then the Rule Would Operate Against Pitcher and Vice Versa. During the winter baseball fans have been regaled with ideas and suggestions offered by different proiuiuent baseball men regarding proposed changes in tho foul strike rule. But a week ago Clark Griffith offered quite a string of reforms for the present regulation, but these cre not accepted seriously, as the chanirjs as suggested were arbitrary and did not really get at the evil in existing conditions.

There can be no doubt that the foul strike rule, as it reads today, is too much of a pitcher's rule. Any kind of a slabman at all can have a batter In tho hole most of tha time, and the hitter who manges to maintain a good average in spite of the rule is considered very lucky indeed Any "changes suggested for the rule should be based on a proposition to equalize the bauman and pitcher continually, and any set rule cannot do this, as has been proven by the failures of the rule now in use. Some shlftlnfr system must be vsed, and the best yet proposed ty any ball player or enthusiast is that offered by Cajt. Billy Fox of the Minneapolis team. During all the foul rule talk Fox has been figuring on some Bcheme for Improvement, and ut last has hit on a plan which he believes will eliminate all of tho bad character istics of the old regulation.

Fox's plau is to formulate a rulo whereby conditions bet ecu the pitcher and batsman rurauin as nearly equal a possible. When a batter has two balls end no strikes, for instance, the pitcher Is lit the hole, and the hittor knows for sure tbat the ocxt one is coming over, if the pitcher can get it there. The batter, therefore, knows about where (he ball is co-ming, and has the fairest chance on earth to hit It. If he fouls the tall under such condi tions, then a 3trike should be called. The bame would hold when a better has three balls and no strikes, or three balls and one strike.

In each case the batter lias all tha best of ths proposition, and te Is practically certain that the next ball pitched Is to be a strike. So he has a fair chance to hit tt, and If he falls by making a foul, the chance should go against h'm and a strike be called. In other cases Just the opposite is true. If the batter has one strike and no balls, then the pitcher has the best of tho proposition. Tho pitcher may stick ona near the corner of tho plate, and the batter, under the present rule, takes a chance on a foul, as he knows that the rtrlke may be called on hlnx anyhow.

In such a case a foul should not be called a strike, for tho pitcher has every chance In the world to waste one and still not get in the hole. With two strikes and no balls, two strikes and one ball, one ball and no Bttikes, or one ball and one strike, the same should hold good, as the pitcher hae, if anything, the best of the situation. Fox's suggestions appear to come the ties rest to hitting the nail on the head of any that have been offered. They are, above all, fair to both pitcher and batter, for they would give each art equal chance at all stages of the game. WISCONSIN TOURNEY OPEN TO THE STATE BOWLERS (Special DiapatcK to The Tribune.) OSHK03H, Feb.

11. The Wiscon-siu State Bowling association tournament was entrusted to Oshkosh for 1906. The Oshkosh association which coutrols the tournament would be guilty of a breach of confidence If it refused to accept entries from any resident of the state. The tournament' will be open to all Wisconsin bowlers who pay their entrance money. i This statement was issued late yesterday afternoon by C.

C. Chase, president of the Wisconsin Slate Bowling association, after a protracted meeting and conference of the officers of that body. The seslon wai called to take action regarding the statement of resident Carpenter, of the Milwaukee Bowling association, to tha effect tbat rules of the American Bowling association forbade participation of any bowler who was not a member of a regularly organization association, and that protest and penal action might follow the acceptance of entries sava from regular association teams. 17 It JV 'AURELIA BOUT 'JEEMS jeFFRlES1. 4 AT A1ARVIN HART?

LENN0N IS VERY QUIET SINCE RETURN FROM COAST Tebeau. Still Gets Roasted Axormd th.e Circuit Kawvilla Tans in Revolt. By- rnurc e. porctx Mike Kelley and Ed Dt akin son overeat the baseball office have been hibernating during the period of cold but yesterday the manager came out of hi hols long enough to announce that ba had scoured George Duquette, a left handod pitcher frofti the Patterson, N. club of the Hudson River league.

Duquette pitched tn good form last year and won .786 per cent of hla games, finishing with a batting average of .234. Practically all of the 1906 contraot have been sent out to the prospective Minneapolis players and these will begiin to return soon, for It is not believed that thero ar to be any tardy ones on the list this year. The Minneapolis owner i still feeling pretty much elated over the trade for "Lefty" Davis and he now has. In Denny Sullivan and "Lefty." two good. fast, all-round baaeball men, who are correspondingly clever with the stick.

During the week Lennon returned from tho coast and the Saintly City and Milwaukee fans have been expecting quite a dose of fireworks aimed directly at. Mr. Kelley. The once boastful owner of the Slabvlile crew, however, has come back from the land of the palms as gentle as lainh, and it is stated in St. Paul that he Is ready to eat out of anybody's bane- ball hand.

So many direful things were promised Mr. Kelley by Leunon that th fans had really hoped to see another exhibition of cantaukeroeity, and they naturally are disappointed that affairs have tuk.jti such a peaceful turn. Even the Milwaukee dopesters who have been over anxious to offer any Indignity puosslble to Mr. Kelley have ceased to harp upon the recent baseball unpleasantness and at this time not one of the bad crowd In the association ig saying a word. This simply means that they are through, that they havo played their bluff to the limit, and that Mike Kelley baa won out completely tn the bitterest fight ever made upon a man in association baseball.

Says the Sporclng Navra of Tebeau: "Telioau's troubles ace accumulating. Some one throws the- switch to success against him every tluie he gets under full team. He was deposed from tha chair manship of the national board by aa overwhelming vote. Then came the announcement that there will be continuous racing at Louisville throughout the base ball season. But the worst blow of all Is the anti-Sunday ball bill that has been favorably reported to the Kentucky legis lature.

With weekday competition and Sabbath prohibition, the prospects of profit at Louisville are poor. His Kansaa City proposition does not appeal to Investors and dividends from Denver cannot bo depended on. Syndicate baseball ha never enriched those who angnged in it and Tebeau will, before the close of tho 19utJ race, be satisfied with a singu club." Here Is what a Kansas City basebaG crltlo replies to a query for news: 'There Is no local baseball to print and Mr. Tebeau Is In about as bad as "linky" BliU and "link" ha some s'en more months to serve at JeffoMun City.

YOST MAY NOT WANT TO STAY UNDER NEW RULES There Is Talk of Famous Coach Go- ing to Carlisle, Where Football Will Stay.

(Speoial Dispatch to Th Tribune.) ANN ARBOR, Feb. Ii Instead of saving the old gam of football, athletes of Michigan have awakened to the fact that they have lost It beyond hop of recovery. Their apparent victory In retaining Coaflh Yost until the expiration of bis contract In 1909 Is offset by so many 'restrictions to th game on the part of tha university senate tbat It la doubtful whether Yost will car to return and reorganize th sport. Players here think that may seek Carlisle or some other Eastern school which has not yielded to "reform." The probability of Such a step ts Increased sine President Angell makes It plain that only a legal contract Impelled th senate to defer the student coaching system which will be established as soon a "Hurry Up" shall withdraw. President Angell Is accustomed to never take a publlo stand on a question until certain of support, and has the reputation of never falling to carry his point.

He now declares that the race for professional coaches Is to be abandoned and a return made to the system of coaching by the captain of the eleven, "when to be captain was a real honor, and not a position as figurehead." He expects to see all other conference colleges follow this plan as soon as thulr present coaching contracts shall expire. In view of the fact that Wisconsin hRS asked him to call another conference it is not unlikely that a definite expression upon this point will be secured from the "Nine." and as a result th hopes of the athletes hero have been finally dashed. They can see nothing but further aggression by the antl-foolball element in such a conference. Michigan's alumni are as bitterly disappointed in the senate's action as are the athletes. Mayor Codd and Senator Murfln, of Detroit, who came here to plead the cause of the sport before their old professors, were deeply hurt by the reception given their ideas.

Prominent wearers of the including Captains Norcross and Curtis, Tom Hammond, Longman and Schulte, on hearing that the conference rules had been adopted except as to Yost's contract and the retroactive force of the three-year rule, expressed the opinion that the game has practically been destroyed. The limitation of the schedule to flv games and the reduction of the maximum admission fee to fifty cents have cut off the financial support of the Athletic association and crippled Its work. The general sentiment of the students is one of despair over the future of university athletics. One certain outcome of these charges will be a revival of the old departmental spirit In class football games. Every class in each of the six departments will have a team, whose schedule will be the chief diversion of the season.

The final contests between departments will, as in former years, be made the occasion of a strong departmental spirit such as exists In the English universities. The faculty is inclined to favor these games.

Mil FOOTBALL Minnesota Faculty Council Votes to Stand by the Action of Chicago Conference.

UNANIMOUS VOTE GIVEN FOR REFORMED FOOTBALL Only Game as Changed to Be Allowed to Continue Best Thing for the Game. With President Northrop as its chairman the governing council of the I nlversiiy of Minnesota yesterday afternoon, after little discussion, voted unanimously to adopt the recommendations of the Big Xlne faculty conference held at Chicago some weeks ago. Each and every one of the suggestions was voted on separately and a unanimous vote to ratify the actions of the conference was given with but little diseusslon and no dissenting voice. This simply means that Minnesota has taken a position as radical aa any of the colleges in the West. It does not mean that football is to be abolished, but that only reformed football will be played, and that unless the work of the rules committee is satisfactory -to the various faculties, then these faculties themselves will make rules for their own sport.

It also means that if the rules committee in session yesterday makes many bad breaks, football as a sport will be abolished, for two years at least, and possibly for a longer period. Ever since the radical action taken at the Chicago conference football has hung In the balance at many western institutions. Chicago will have none of the old sport, and Michigan, under the lead of President Angell, has decided to follow the suggestions of the conference with the exception of the professional coach clause. Wisconsin is even more radical than Chicago and wishes to abandon the game for two years, while the other faculties of the Big Nine are rather in favor of dropping the sport. Minnesota's faculty has always stood strongly for football, and President Northrop has been considered a great friend of the sport.

He has attended many of the games In the West and has been a real enthusiast, while the deans of the various colleges have been strong protagonists of the gridiron game. The action of yesterday will probably not meet with the approval of the students, for football is rooted deep in the college heart. It Is tho great sport of the year and is as dear to the student at college as Is baseball to any fan. Without football, he has no typical sport and undoubtedly a great demonstration will follow this action of the faculty unless the wiser beads among the students prevail. At first glance it would appear that the faculty has given football a great blow and that the sport can hardly be expected to survive at the state institution.

It might be argued that Minnesota should stand for the game as It is. and not allow the criticisms of the other colleagues to affect her course in the matter. This, however, is not true, for the action of the faculty yesterday undoubtedly was one of the wisest things that could have been done. other colleges of the Big Nine have already expressed their sentiments regarding the conference suggestions and they have determined to have nothing but reformed football. Wera Minnesota to stand aloof she could accomplish nothing, for such an action would probably result in the abandonment of football altogether at the other institutions and the Gophers would find no opponents whatever.

The action of yesterday means that Minnesota is In favor of tho following propositions: That football unless reformed will be abolished for two years: that no professional coaching be allowed, (Dr. Williams keeps bis place as a member of the faculty): that the freshman eligibility rule be extended to one year; that no training tablo Bhall be allowed; that a player shall be allowed to piny but three years; that there shall be no Thanksgiving day game; that the season shall be limited to six weeks: that no training before the opening of the school year shall be allowed; that but five games shall be played each season; that freshmen teams and second elevens shall play only with teams from their own Institutions; and that only 60 cents shall be charged students for admission to games. Minnesota's faculty added one rule to the list by passing a motion to make $2 the limit for a ticket sold to any outsider. This does not affect the student iO cent rule.
