6 AT LAST ASCHEDULE. The Western Association Arranges Its Dates for the . Season of 1889. A Peculiar Patchwork Results From a Wrangle Lasting Three Days. St. Paul to Open in Milwaukee and Minneapolis in Dcs Moines. Portrait of Young Farmer, the New Catcher of the St. Paul Team. Special to the Globe. Sioux City, 10., March During the three days the schedule committee of the Western Base Ball association has been in session here no less than a dozen schedules have been made, only to be rejected by the committee of managers. An agreement was practically readied this afternoon, but a knotty point precipitated a discussion and the whole matter was again kicked over. The committee retired again, and finally, at 10 o'clock to-night, a satisfactory arrangement was arrived at. The schedule consists of 126 games, and the season will begin April 25 and end Sept. 29. The St. Paul team will open at Milwaukee, Minneapolis going to Dcs Moines, Sioux City to Denver, and St. Joe to Omaha. The season will open in St. Paul and Minneapolis May 1, Milwaukee appearing in the former city and Dcs Moines in the latter. By an apparent oversight St. Paul is scheduled to appear in Minneapolis Decoration day, and twice on the Fourth of July. It is presumed at least one of the games of the Fourth of July will be transferred to St. Paul. The Twin City teams meet each other often in the first two months and finish their series of eighteen games early in July. St. Paul will close the season at Denver, and Minneapolis at Sioux City. All in all the schedule is a curious piece of patchwork, made to please all the warring factions,and will doubtless give satisfaction almost nowhere.

BROUGHTON'S PARTNER. the Record of Young Farmer, St. Paul's New Catcher. William Farmer is the young player Who will assist Cal Broughton in catch- ing for the St. Paul team dur- J ing the season of 1889. He has never been seeu in games In the West, but has had consid c r a b 1 c experience. He is a big, strong fellow, being but a quarter of an inch short of six feet, and ir . • t*K - fecf 5 weighs 18 5 VV /+ . PA P.tfS* t\ pounds, li i s diamond career dates from 18S3, when he became a member of the Clearfield, Pa., club. He was then but nineteen years old, having been born in Dublin Feb. 27, 1804. Throughout the season of 1884 he played with the Norfolk, Va.,team, and during 18S5 and 1880 was with the Brandywines, of Westchester, N. Y. In 1887 he started out with the Oswego International team, with which he remained until it disbanded, going thence to the Shauiokin Central league team, which won the championshio. Farmer caught more games than any other catcher in the organization, and came out in the lead with an average of .921 in fielding and .278 in batting. In ISSB he was signed by Pittsburg, but caught only four championship games and was released to the Athletics. He remained with the Philadelphia team the season through. Farmer writes he is in fine shape and anxious for the season to open. "■;■'.; ■";-. THE DENVER TEAM. Complete List of the Players Who Will Represent Colorado's Capital. /Special to the Globe. Denvek, March 16.— Base ball news is rather scarce at present, as the players signed have not reported yet, and very few players winter here, although the climate is of such a nature as to permit ball playing most of the time. Work on the new grounds is progressing nicely, and everybody seems satisfied with the location. The diamond will be laid in such a position that not one of the players will face the sun. Following is the team signed: David Rowe, manager, captain and first base. Mr. Rowe has played in all the larger associations, and is well known by all admirers of the- game throughout the country. Thomas Dolan, catcher, last year with the St. Louis Browns, and the year previous with the Lincoln team. During his connection with the latter team he became a great favorite in this city. Arthur Twineham, catcher, last year with the Bloomineton team of the Interstate league. He is a stranger in this city. William Fagan, pitcher, with Kansas City American Asssociation team last season. William Darnburugb, pitcher, with., the Bloomington team of the Interstate league last year. William McClelland, short stop, with Brooklyn last year. Thomas : Mc- Andries, second base. This player has played in. Denver most of the time that he has been engaged in ball playins. He is a hard worker, and of a quiet disposition, and well liked. Nick Smith, .third base, with the Pioneerteam of San Francisco last season. Abner Dalrymple, left field, an old. league player. Edward Siich, centerfield, with Brooklyns last season, and with the Denver team in 1886 and 1887. Mart McQuaid, right field, with Dubuque last season. W. L. Van Horn, a young business man of this city, is the sole proprietor of the team. THE MINNEAPOLIS FIGHT. The Spectator Roasts the Cranks Opposing the Sport. ' The Saturday Evening Spectator says the few fanatics who are trying to knock out base ball in Minneapolis are in the wrong, ana expresses itself this way: A base ball park near the West hotel is proposed on the block vacated by a lumber yard, and which is therefore full of chips and an eyesore generally. There are facing it.only a few shabby" tenements, most of whose occupants would be glad to see the games free from the second-story windows, and who would rent even their* roofs at a profit; yet there is a big howl from property owners about base ball being a nuisance, etc. There are some folks who discourage fun of all kinds, like the i Connecticut man who cut off his kitten's tail because she played with it. .We i should discriminate between sport of a { manly kind and so-called sport which degrades. Base ball is pre-eminently a J game for the development of muscle, nerve and skill. It demands on the ' cart of players temperance and gentlemanly conduct. Some folks will bet on ball games, but the betting is as nothing compared with that on horse racing. Our young men may perhaps spend too much time at these games, but their employers can attend to that. The temptation to waste time, money and energy is certainly less at a base ball entertainment in the afternoon than at • the average entertainment elsewhere, i including some under church auspices, where "chances" are sold. Struck by Stage Fright. Boston, March 16.— Mike Kelly came on from New York to take part in the Elks' benefit. He was underscored to . give a recitation, "Casey at the Bat," but when the critical moment arrived the stage manager came before the curtain and announced that, owing to a severe cold and sore throat, Mr. Kelly would not be able to fulfill his part of the programme. Those behind the scenes, however, tell a different story. Kelly was afraid to go on. He was half overcome0 vercome with stage fright, and the other half ol his fear was that some friend of John Morrill, of whom the "only" has spoken disparagingly, might greet him with a hiss. "1 won't go on," said Kelly; "they'll hiss me, and I believe I should faint if they did." DON'T LIKE GRADING. Spalding and Anson Against the Scheme. New York, March 10.— Walter Spa Iding to-day received a letter from his brother, in which the writer said that the letters directed to the base ball party at Cairo had not yet reached them. He also said that the party had seen no sporting papers from this country, and that all the information they had received about the new rules was contained in a brief cable to a newspaper correspondent who is with the tourists. He said that neither he nor Anson favored the graded system." but they were not sufficiently informed in relation to it to venture any specific criticism. The players with the party did not seem to favor the new plan, but, like Spalding, they preferred to learn more about it before they expressed an opinion. He had seen a story to the effect that he had asked Mike Kelly to meet the party in Europe, but it was not true. They had got along well enough without him, and the men were better off for it. The letter was dated at Paris, RECEIVED BY ROYALTY. Marked Attention Paid the % Base Ballists. The Chicago Tribune's special from Bristol, Eng., yesterday said: "On the arrival of the teams in Bristol they were met at the station by a committee of four, comprising the Duke of Beaufort, Dr. Grace, and Messrs. E. Clarence and Henry Belos, of the Gloucester County Cricket club. They were driven to the Grand hotel in four-horse drags and sat down to an elaborate luncheon in the hotel banquet hall. Anson was seated on the left of the Duke of Beaufort and Spalding on his right. Among those present were Dr. Grace and his brother, Lorin A. Lathrop, the American consul; A. J. Lawson, president of the Bristol chamber of commerce, and other well-known residents of Gloucestershire. - The toasts drunk comprised "The Queen," "The President of the United States,'" and '.'The American Base Ball Teams." To the latter toast Mr. Spalding responded happily, and in the course of his ; remarks gave a - humorous description of the party's tribulations in Italy, France and Egypt, where foreign tongues were spoken and caused no end of trouble. Three cheers were given by the boys for their hosts before adjourning, and then came the pleasant drive to the grounds. The day was clear, but cold, and the boys' fingers were stiff. Accordingly the game was not a brilliant one, but the crowd was appreciative and auplauded all the plays liberally. The Duke of Beaufort and the ladies watched the game trom • the press bench inside the inclosure. Baldwin and Tener were both ..suffering with severe colds, and Anson put Ryan in the box. - Hanlon, to even things up, pitched Brown, and let the All-America THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SUNDAY MORNING, MARCH 17, 1889. —SIXTEEN PAGES. boys change about. But seven innings . were played in order that the prominent cricketers present might be given a chance to test the delivery of an American base ball pitcher. Chicago piled up the runs from the start "without any trouble, the break in the All America in and out fields proving fatal, while Brown, in addition, was hit freely and hard. At the close, of the game the Chicago team kept in position and Dr. Grace and other prominent cricketers tried their hands at batting Kyan and Crane. The latter did their prettiest, and amazed the cricketers with their speed, their "drops," "shoots" and ."raises." But what amazed the cricketers most was the "out-drop." Dr. Grace thought the ball was coming for his nose and stepped back, only to see it suddenly turn and drop to the ground several feet to the side of the plate. The pitching was a revelation to the cricketers, and greatly amused :. and interested the crowd. The teams returned to London at 7. Spalding, Anson and Hanlon remained, however, till midnight to dine with Dr. Grace. ' Base Ball in the South, Jacksonville, Fla., March 16.— The score lv the second game of the series played to-day betweeu the Jacksonville and Philadelphia base ball teams was 8 to 4 in favor of thePhiladelphias. The ground was wet and slippery. Three games will be played next week. Umpire Decker Loses. Pittsburo, Pa., March 16.— The suit of Umpire Decker* against the national league of base ball clubs to recover a year's salary on air alleged broken contract was decided in favor of the league to-day by Judge Slagle, of the county courts. Amusing the Cockneys. London, March 16.— -The American base ball teams played a game at Layton to-day. The game was won by the Chicagos, the score standing— Chicago, 12; All America, 6. WILL SULLIVAN FIGHT? The Big 'Un Says He Will Train Near Boston. Boston, Mass., March 16.— John L. Sullivan is back on his native heath and busy renewing old acquaintances. When asked if he had set any time for beginning training for the light with Kilrain he said that not until next month would he make any effort to get in shape for the match, and that he would probably do considerable of his training near Boston. "I've not engaged any trainer as yet," said Sullivan, "but my backers and I have several good men in view, and no doubt they will rill the bill." "Is there any truth in the report that your backers threaten to draw down the money ruey pin up ror your* "They did not say anything to me about it, and 1 guess 1 would be the first person to whom they would make such a statement." Chicago, March 16.— Parson Davies says: "I hardly expect that the big match will be brought to an issue, and the fault will not be Kilrain's. Sullivan has a shattered constitution, which he is making no effort to repair, and while his spirit is all right, yet his backers have interests which they cannot afford to sacrifice. My idea of the match is that, if Sullivan is not in good condition when the time comes for selecting a final stakeholder, his backers will quibble and refuse to accept anybody who may be named for that position, aud the upshot will be that a disagreement will occur on all sides, and the stakes will ultimately be drawn." MY UK'S MOUTH Goes Off Again on the Affair With McAuliffe. Belvidehe, 111., March 16. — Billy Myer was seen to-day. He seems to be in splendid condition. He said that b e did not expect to meet McAuliffe asrain for some time, but that he would fight him in England or anywhere before he would let matters # rest as they are.. He saio ne ana ins oacicers enaeavored to the best ot their ability to bring about a fight to a finish the day following the North Judson set-to. but Madden would not consent, and immediately commenced scheming to take down the stakes, paying no attention to protests, until he had at last succeeded in accomplishing his purpose, after promising to put them up again at any time. Myer declines to meet Mc- Auliffe in New York city, because he says that no Western man ever did or can have a fair show in that city. He does not think Sullivan and Kilrain will . , ever meet iv the ring. M'AU LIFFE-DALY. Jack and Mike Will Fight Early in August. jnew iokk, juarcn jacK Mc- Auliffe, of Brooklyn, and a representative of Mike Daly, of Bangor, Me., met to-day and agreed that the fight, should take place early in August within 100 miles of New York. The fight will be for §2,500, under Queensberry rules: the men to weigh no more than 133 pounds. William E. Harding will be stakeholder. Billy Reed, backer of Johnny Regan, to-day posted $200 and issued a challenge to fight Jack Dempsey for $1,000 a side, for the middleweight championship. Regan will meet Dempsey March 20 to make the match. To Meet the 23d. London, March 16.— arrange; ments have been completed for the glove fight between Jem Smith, champion of England, and Charley Mitchell, for £400 and the championship of England. The men are to meet the 23d inst. in a ten-round glove contest. CLOSELY CONTESTED. Carver Defeats Bundle in an Exciting Shooting Match. Cincinnati, 0., March 10.— The shooting match between William F. Carver, the world-renowned all-around shot, and Albert Bandle, of Cincinnati, took place at the old Mill Creek Base Ball grounds this afternoon before an immense concourse of spectators within the grounds, and a greater number, perched on house tops and in trees outside the grounds. The match was for $250 aside, under Hurlinghain rules, at 100 live birds from five ground traps. Several times during the match the shooters were tied, and the interest was intense. Carver shot his last eighteen birds straight kills, while Bandle missed two in his last eighteen, making the score Bandle 90, Carver 91. Carver ■ missed bird 6, 15, 37, 44, 53, 56, 64. 75 and 86. Bandle missed bird 1, 20, 33, 35," 40, 48, 79. 82, 92 and 94. The spectators were breathlessly attentive. The day was clear and warm. The birds were variable, but mostly a bad lot.

The New Secretary of the Navy the Owner of Many Fine Trotters. His Farm* Marshland, Near . Owego, N. V., Well Known to All Horsemen. Some of the Rapid Hoofers ; Which Mr. Tracy Has Raised There. Senator Stanford May Yet Be Given a Close Race as a Horse Breeder. New York, March 16.— is a fact not widely known that Gen. Benjamin Franklin Tracy, secretary of the navy under President Harrison, owns the largest stock farm in the North, and probably the third largest in the country. Secretary Tracy is passionately fond of horses, ana he was one of the principal trotting-horse men until he was appointed judge of the court of ap. peals five years ago, when he withdrew from the trotting track. Since then he has confined himself entirely to breeding, and at his stock farm near* Owego is the finest collection of blooded stock to be found until the state of Kentucky is reached. Gen. Tracy first turned his attention to trotting in 1872, and purchased a small farm near* Owego. N. Y. He was successful on the circuit, and in 1573 decided to enirage in the business of breeding. trotters. He made several extensive purchases of land adjoining his stock farm, and now. under the pretty name of Marshland, it is known to all horsemen of the United States. He has 550 acres all in his own name. The farm STANDS OUT PROMINENTLY with Mambrino Dudley, 2:19%; Kentucky Wilkes, 2:21*4 and Cheltenham. 2:23, at its head. During the season last passed Mambrino Dudley was represented by Crescendo, 2:24; Gretna. 2:23*<<; Fairfax, 2:33; and Fred, 2:45. Kentucky Wilkes had on the circuit three-year-old Virginia Evans, 2:31, and the two-year-old Astoria, 2:4o>?j. During the coming season many new names will appear upon the trotting circuits, . and the maioritv of those will be record- seekers from Marshland. Secretary Tracy will not allow the cares of official life to interfere with the progress and success of his pet idea, which is to elevate the breed of trotting horses, and reach a point that will oring not only speed and stamina, but beauty as well. During the coming season he will send out many selected youngsters, all of which are sure to find fame by their records. The first, perhaps, will be the fouryear-old bay colt Hermod, by Princeps' son Oxmoor, 2:33, out of Wanatah, by Wedge wood; second dam Hermosa (dam of Hermes, Heptagon and Mosa), by Edwin Forrest; third dam Black Kose. Hermod stands sixteen hands, and is a good, STRONG, LIKELY-LOOKING COLT. He traces twice to Black Bose through Princeps and Hermosa, whose blood is in him, mingled with that of Woodbine and Belle in Wedgewood. He should make a most valuable stock horse. One of the most grandly bred is the three-yearold bay colt Arlington. He is by Mambrino Dudley, out of Delta, a sister of Darien, 2:2l}£, she being out of Madam Dudley's daughter Dahlia, by Pilot Jr. Arlington should be considered as stout and as fashionable a bred colt as stands on shoes, as he inherits the blood of Harold, Pilot Jr., and Wood ford g IMainbrino. He has a - eood wav of going, and stands fifteen - and threequarter hands. The brown colt Battle Axe is one that "Gen. Tracy is proud of. He is by Kentucky Wilkes from the fast mare Argo. In his veins runs the blood of .Electioneer aud George Wilkes united, and it is believed by turfmen that the cross ought to prove a success. The brown twoyear-old colt Brevet, by Kentucky Wilkes, out .of dam Pottery Girl, is a promising youngster. His dam and grandam are speed producers. Alicia was the dam of Pottery Girl, 2:35, and Alice Van Duzer, who was got by Seeley's American Star, is sister in blood to' Goshen Maid, 2:31%, and Sir Henry, sire of Lady Star, 2:24. All the farm hands at Marshland are especially proud of Rockingham, foaled in 1885. Oxmoor, his sire, got Cheltenham, 2:28. and had a record of 2:33 over a half; mile track. His dam is Mayeune, who is not only . A SPEED PRODUCER of the first order, but whose dam and grandam were also speed producers. The colts at Marshland are not by any means the stars of the lot. There are several fillies, foaled in 1880, which are expected to earn money and fame on the trotting tracks of the country. Among the fillies, Africa, foaled in 1880, by Mambrino Dudley out of Electa, is to be found. She unites the blood of Green Mountain Maid, Charles Kent Mare, Montgomery Maid, Madam Dudley, and Woodbine. Baroness and Beatitude are a pair of two-year-olds, the first got by Kentucky Wilkes out of Duchess, - and the other by Mambrino Dudley out Hildegarde. The latter was dam of Cheltenham, 2:28. Kentucky Wilkes lias a two-year-old filly called Blue Silk, dam Pattie. She was halter-broken last fall, and showed herself to be a fast and natural pacer. On her fourth time on the tracK Blue Silk paced an eighth in 21}4 seconds. Secretary Tracy has great hopes of the threeyear-old filly Brush, by Kentucky Wilkes, out of Wedgewood's daughter Wanatah. Brush -is large for her age and promising. In point of breeding she cannot be surpassed. Another daughter of Kentucky Wilkes is Bolivia. Her dam is Vivian, a daughter of Woodford Mambrino and Virginia, the dam of Tremont. 2 :2B}£. Tremont was represented on the turf last-year by the five-year-old colt Junemont, 2:15%. This filly's blood is a mixture of Alexander's and Woodford i Mambrino, the best son of Mambrino ; Chief. AMONG THE YEAKI.IXGS at Marshfield are many choice colts and fillies. There is a filly by Kentucky Wilkes out of the Almont mare Betty Adams, whose dam produced Lady Majolica. 2:25. There is a brother to Brevet, a brotiier to Battle Axe, and daugh- ; ters of Hildegarde, Mason Girl and Vivian, all sired by Woodford Mambrino. The Onward mare Loretta, who is out of a sister of Stephen G, 2:20} 2, is the dam of a large yearling by Kentucky j Wilkes. Among others at Marshland are the four-year-old Gretna. 2:29>£; the chestnut colt Broderick; two fillies by Lady Moore, the dam of Fairfax the three-year-old Astoria, who made a record of 2:40% last year, and the three- ' year-old Bosque. There are many other well-bred trotting horses ' at Secretary Tracy's • : Marshland farm, and .as he is constantly adding to his farm lands he - will unquestionably in the course of a few years give Senator Stanford, of California,- a close race for supremacy in the ? matter of stock farms for the : breeding of trotting horses. It is surprising-to find how much Gen. Tracy knows about breeding. . The demands made upon him by his profession of the law would naturally lead one to suppose that he could not give more than a small portion of his time to the examination . of the records and pedigrees of trotting horses. But as a matter of fact the new secretary of the navy has acquired a knowledge, regarding - the - different families whose names make up the his- : tory of the trotting turf that lew men possess. " Gen. Tracy has followed the pedigrees of all trotting horses with the same keen perception that he has :pursued his success at law. The general was born in Owego, ' April 26, 1830, and it is his natural love for his birthplace C that has led him to establish his famous i stock farm there. J AN EQUINE ART GALLERY, j. Pictures of Fine Horses at the v Jockey Club Rooms. ' V The elegant rooms of the Twin City | club have recently received several ad- c djtious to what has come to be" known to * .friends of the organization as the art j 'gallery. This gallery is different from ' any art gallery in this section of the country, lv that it is devoted exclusely , to heroes and heroines of the turf. The recent acquisitions consist of five splendid oil paintings by Lvman, of Chicago, .representing to the life Proctor Knott, c the great two-year-old who won upwards , of $70,000 last season ; Galen, who is entered for the Twin City Derby; Bard, - owned by A. J. Cassatt, of Philadelphia; \ the famous Iroquois, whose great record ( ih England was the wonder of the time, I about five years. ago, and Tremont, who I ; was never beaten. Ho was a famous * two-year-old two years ago. In addition ] to these five pictures the Jockey club -j has - life-like portraits of Terra Cotta, ] who . broke the mile and an eighth J record in 1886; Little Minch, who ob- - tamed a record as the greatest \ sprinter in the country; Macbeth 11., j winner of the Kentucky and Kansas j CityHerbys; Huntress^winner of six '1 important stakes last season ; Egmont. ". who is expected to develop into the 1 wonder of the season of ; 89: and last.but \ not least by any means, the late { lamented Ban Fox, sold by John Chirm i in 1885 to J. B. Haggin, of California, j for $27,500. after winning the Junior I Champion stakes at Long Branch. The ' apartments of the -Twin City Jockey ( club are fitted up with exquisite taste, J but without any suggestion of loudness. \ There is every indication that this will 1 be one of the permanent St. Paul organ- i izations, and bids fair* to reflect nothing 1 but credit upon all concerned in its ( management. A delegation of promi- J nent railroad men called at the club j Friday and assured the management * that the roads would exert every legiti- a male means to further the interests of { 1 the association. They mentioned the ] fact that inquiries are pouring in from *] all the prominent Eastern and Southern , racing centers as to rates. The matter will probably come up at the meeting of the "Northwestern Kate association April 5, which will be none too early, as the races are run from July 23 to Aug. 1, { and rates ought to be well advertised as '. early as possible.
