Nothing- wuh taken lor granted about the case, tho league received official notification of their retirement and when Manager Joss started the revival of the team he was to have notified the league president Tuesday of his luck, but nothing was heard from the Forts until this morning.

Corbett vs. Jeffries GREAT BATTLE OF BY 1900 IS REVIEWED Corbett- Note Thia it the second chapter of a series which Mr. Corbett is writing concerning hie great fight with James J. Jeffries in 1900. In this aeries of article Mr. Corbett reveals to the public, for the first time, some of the dramatic and humorous features of that fight which, up to thia " time, were known only to his - .intimates. After Jim Jeffries took the championship from Rob Fitzslmmons I was perfectly content to permit the continuation of tho stories that I was very much out of fighting condition. V The more the folks talked about "Jim Corbett, the has-been, the bet-ter it fitted in with my plans. I J hadn't been able to trick Fits into a match with me in the be-lief that I was "all In," but I had strong hopes that I might be nhle to work it successfully with Jeffries. And I did. William A. Brady, who had been my manager from the time before my fight with John I,. until some months after I lost to Fitz, was then the manager of Jeffries. And it was upon Brady that I centred my endeavors to get a match with Jeff, reckoning that if F.rady would give his consent Jeff would be guided by Brady's action. I tried In various ' ways to meet J?rndy, planning that Brady mnst think It was an accident--al meeting. The plan worked. After Brady and I had exchanged greetings, I said to him: "Say. Rill, why don't you get Jeff to give mo a fight?" Think Little of Corbett' Chance Brady looked at me In an odd way. It was but natural. Rill had been fed up with stories of my "has been" condition and, of course, was stir-prised that I should want to fight such an aggressive, powerful and rugged fellow as Jeffries. "Why, Jim, he'd kill you," declared Brady. 'I'll take the chance. Bill." "But you wouldn't have a chance," answered ITTT1. "It wouldn't be fair to you to let you fight Jeff. You're too old." Then I said: "I am a little old, Rillr-that's right. And maybo I'm not in the same condition that I used-to be. But, just the same, I'd like to get a fight with Jeff, anyway" While Brady was pondering over it, I added: "BUI, I put Jeffries Into the business, didn't I? and you and Jeff are on the road to fortune now. Why don't you tw0 fellows even things up with mo now by giving me a chance to make a little money. I certainly could use, my end of a purse," At that Juncture Jeff Joined us, and after we had exchanged greetings, Brady said to Jeff: "Jim thinks you ought to give him a fight." Jeffries looked at me for a second or two and then hung his head and looked at the tloor without uttering a word. Finslly Brady said to Jeff: "The peoplo will bo expecting you to fight pretty soon, anyway, Jeff, and you might ns well take on Jim ns anyone else. He'll be easier for you than the rest of the boys, 'jlm hasn't had a long tight for nearly three years and he's pretty old and out of shape. What do you think about It, Jeff?" Jeff remained silent. Then I walked over close to him and said: "You ought to give me a fight." Still Jeff was silent. The champ wasn't In a very talkative mood that day. I had hoped that after a little talking with him I might Influence htm Into agreeing to fight me. But Jeff had nothing to say. So I made a big play on Brady, realising that, after all, he was the man who would or wouldn't give me the chance to regain the heavyweight championship of the world. "I'd like to fight Jeff any time within a year," I said, directing my conversation to Brady. "How about It, Jeff?" asked Brady. Jeff looked at me, then looked at Brady. He didn't speak, hut there was something in his eyes that gave consent to the -match. So Brady, correctly interpreting Jeff's look, said to me: "All right, Jim; we'll give you a fight within a year."

Chilcoot Is Star On Grand Circuit Murphy's Trotters First In Five And Second In Three of Eight Starts After Chilcoot won the $10,000 Charter Oak purse, Thomas W. Murphy stated that he would not be started again this season. He has a boWed tendon that bothers him and an effort will be made during the winter months to get him In trim for another umpalgn in 1919. Since the grand circuit opened Chilcoot took the word In eight races of which ho won five and was second In three. At the first North Randall meeting ho won in 2.utii, while at Kalamazoo he finished second to Wilkes Brewer in 2.0'ih, and June Bed defeated him at Toledo In a three in live heat race aftt!r he won a heat in 2.05. Hia fastest race was trotted at Columbus, where he won in 2.06J, 2.041, 2.041 from Heir Reaper Chilcoot was not started at the second North Randall meeting. He was, however, one of Murphy's nlno winners at Philadelphia, and he again finished second to June Red at I'oughkeepsio. At that time he was very lame. Still he came through In front at Readvllle in the 45,tXlO Massachusetts, and at Hnrtford in the $10,000 Charter Oak purse. Is Six Yean Old Chilcoot is 6 years old.

Fxl. t Jeers, in. his "Experience With the Trotters and Pacers." stated that as a test of speed, gameness and endurance, the Charter Oak of 1891 will go down In turf history as the most remarkable event ever trotted. This, however, was not tho only great race that was placed to the credit of Nightingale, as at Chllllrothe, Ohio, she won after a six-heat contest with Iittle Albert, Ryland T., Charleston and Lakewood Prince In 2.12. In 1S93 Nightingale also won another seven-heat race at Buffalo, defeating Allx and Ureenleaf, and also placed the three-mllo record of the world at 6.551 where it still stands. In 1S94 Nightingale won again, at Buffalo at two miles from Green-lander In 4.361, the world's race record for the distance, whilo in 1895 she continued her wonderful career by defeating Azote nnd Klamath at Fes no, Cal., In February. After coming east she won at Fort Wayne, Ind., In 2.10 and at Terre Haute In 2. OS, her record, defeating Onoqua, Dandy Jim, David B. and Anderson's Nightingale. Nightingale's coat was a trifle darker than Chilcoot's, but as a typical light harness performer endowed with speed, gameness and endurance Chilcoot presents the same characteristics an the 'Stout-hearted daughter of Mambrino King and Mlnnoqua Maid that was one of the turf world stars In the nineties, when the Village Farm stable kept the Hamlin and Buffalo, 'N.Y., constantly before the public. .

LOUIS Here it is, the first triple play ever made In France, and a team of St. Louis players (Base Hospital No. 2i Is their particular designation) claims the honor. The claim Is made In a letter from Lieut Allen A. Gilbert, a former Washington university student, to a friend In St. Louis. Lieut. Gilbert's letter follows: "I took our ball team up to Paris a couple of weeks ago and we went through the teams there like the Cubs do the Cardinals. I arranged a game with the Military Police, the leaders of the Paris league, and with an all-star team picked from twelve teams the best they could get together as I had told the secretary that we were mighty strong. "We played out at Colombes In the Stadium, where the White Sox and Olants played on their world tour, and had two fast, snappy games. "Tho Saturday game we played the Military Police and brat them 7 to 0, Thximas allowing only four hits and striking out 15 men. "The feature was a triple play which we turned In the seventh with two men on. It was unusual, and I'll deserlbe It for you. Men were on first and second by virtue of an error and a walk, when the batter lined a short single to right. Lennon, playing right, tamo In fast and lined tho ball home to Taylor. The runner on eec. ond made no attempt to score, as the hit was too short. Lennon's throw got away from Taylor for a short parsed hall, whereupon the runner tricn to score from third. "Taylor made a fast recovery and pegged to Thomas covering the plate, who tagged the man out. Meanwhile the man on first had come toll the way nround to third, and had a nhort lead off that' bag. A fast peg to Bindner caught htm in a run-up between third and home, and be was run down and tagged out by Thomas near the plate. The man who had singled had reached second and made a breal? for third as tho second out was being made. Thomas' relay to Nowell caught him sliding Into third. "Can you beat that? A triple play turned from a clean hit, and no bad base-running. "We beat the Paris All-Stars 12 to four. We were simply too good for them. Thomas had the Parisians at his mercy all the time, and they scored only after we had a good big lead. Voor continues to slug the old pill, and Chapplo Chalfant scintillated ut second, as usual. "We would like to play the Cardinals for the benellt of the Red Cross, If wc could. We might spot 'em a few runs, if necessary. Meanwhile, i we need bats and balls." RED CROSS GOLF. Ell SflTIMY Norwood Club Arranges Temporary Greens For Remaining Play s """""" Owing to the ground keeper being busy covering up the regular greens for the winter, Norwood golfers will have to use temporary greens for remaining play this season. A sweepstake handicap will be held Saturday. Messrs. Armstrong and Pemberton-Figott will play-off Saturday for first place in the Red Cross match. Mr. Parker was slated for the play-ofl hut an error occurred in the handicapping and he did not qualify because his net score wasSl and not 80 as previously listed. The members are advised that as the club house is liable to be closed at any time after the end of this month, they., had better begin to think of removing their clubs and other effects, ns U is very inadvisable that anything be left on the premises over the winter. Due notice of closing, however, will be sent to the press. On to BerllaJ Save for ltonda Jack Hughes Hit Hard by Spanish "Flu" Jack Hughes, the local hockey star.

Boys Have Prospects - For Fast Senior Team-Juniors Did Well Tt IHE Young . Men's Lutheran club will make a bid for a team In local senior hockey this year. This was decided at a meeting of the Icelandic club held Thursday evening. President John Vopnl was In the chair. The Y.M.L.C. team figured in Junior hockey last season and made a good showing. The Icelandic seven made the best showing of any Winnipeg Junior team against the champion Selkirk brigade. In both of their league games the Lutherans extended Selkirk all the way and only lost by narrow margins. The question of amalgamating with a local Junior team, as suggested by an Argonaut official, did not meet with favor. The Y..U.L. club thinks that It can get along better by Itself than by hooking up with another club. Last winter the Lutherans had the largest following of any Winnipeg Junior team and it is felt that should the team advance to senior company that its supporters will turn out in much larger numbers. Senior Prospects Good The Lutherans have most of their last season's Juniors and have the promise of several well-known seniors to lino up with them. Several of the Juniors are ripe for senior company and with the bolstering up by the assistance of some experienced players, the executive feels that the Y.M.L.C. boys could make a good showing In senior play. The Y.M.L.C. Is an organization of Icelandic boys which was formed by a young element in 1916, when practically every member of the old clique Joined the army as members of the 223rd Battalion. The Lutheran club Is really an offspring of the old Falcon Hockey club, whlclKWon honors In Manitoba senior hockey. It has goon financial backing and is ready to continue hockey this season. On to Berlin I 8t6 for Bond ' Athletics Hold Pitcher Perry PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 18 "It la true that we have reached an agreement over the disposition of Scott Perry,1" said Connie IMack, manager of the Philadelphia Americans. "The ease has been settled by the Athletic club paying a sum of money to the Boston owners. By doing this the Braves relinquished all claim to ' Perry's services and he Is now the sole property of the Athletics."
