Young Pitcher's Demand-Accepted by
Cincinnati Management. :..
SAN FRANCISCO. Dec 26. (Special.)
Mike Fisher today declared that he
was the most surprised person in-California,
for he had received news that
Cincinnati had acceptod the conditions
named by Overall, and which both
Fisher and Ovorall believed to be of
such a nature- that the Eastern' club
would reject them. According to Fish
er, Overall will receive $700 per month
from tho Cincinnati club.
Ovic was anxious to romain on tho
Coast, and so he assured Fisher that ho
would make it impossible for Nod Han
Ion, of Cincinnati, to draft Mm. On
this score, jubilant Mike gaveT out the
report that Overall was his. He lias
now received word from the young col
legian that Cincinnati has called his
game, and wants him at his own prjee.
Mike says that the figure Overall will
eommand is the greatest ever paid to a
pitcher with as little professional ex
perience as the college lad has had.

The new rule adonted bv tho Judsres of

of in this way. After considerable time
has elapsed, they can no longer be set
down for trial, and even if a trial were
possible at a late day, the witnesses
probably could not be found, and a con
viction, therefore, could not be had.
Evasions by Appeal.
Saloonkeepers convicted In the Muni
cipal Court of keeping open after hours
or other violations of the saloon or
dinance have made a practice of evading
the fine by an appeal. Disorderly women
nave won out by the same means, and
otners convicted of misdemeanors. The
appealed state cases aro of a minor char
acter assault and batten and lesser
crimes. It is the duty of tho Citr Attor
ney to try the appealed city criminal
cases, and of the District Attorney to at
tend to the stato cases appealed."
The practice of defeating justice by ap
pealing from tho lower courts to the State
Circuit Court is not new. It has been
common Indulged in by attorneys for
20 years or moro past, and winked at by
city and district attorneys.
Bad for Attorneys.
The new rule of the Judges requiring
all cases to be placed on the trial docket
and set for trial Is naturally opposed by
attorneys who have been winning cases
by the appeal process. If they are forced
to go to trial In tho upper court. It means
additional -work to earn their fees, and
also that convictions of their clients may
do the nnai outcome.

they will constantly be before the eye of
the presiding Judge of the State Circuit
Court, and when the trial docket Is called
on Monday of each week, the Judge will
be In a position to ask when each case Is
to be tried, and If it is not ready for trial.
The trial of such cases will make more
work for the Judges and attorneys, but
in the end will no doubt have a contrary
effect- of lessening the number of ap
pealed cases greatly.
To Facilitate Docketing.
The Judges of the State Circuit Court
have also adopted a rule requiring tne
clerk of the Circuit Court to submit to
the presiding Judge at the beginning of
each month a list of all cases where per
sons have been held to answer in the
lower courts to the higher court. By
checking the list up with the' not true

MAY DROP MULTNOMAH.
Washington Wants Oregon to Play
Thanksgiving Day Game.
From Seattle comes the information,
carelessly dropped, that Oregon has
evinced a willingness to open up negotia
tions with the University of Washington
for an annual Thanksgiving day football
game. It came out as if It might havo
been a slip, sandwiched in between a lot
of talk, about the anxiety of the Califor
nia universities to take the date. TJ. was
Intimated that the Multnomah Club and
the University of .Oregon had been on bad
terms for a long time, and that Oregon
would gladly break off with Multnomah.
There Is nothing new In 'the situation.
Oregon has wanted to break with Multno
mah for several years, but each season
has had a hunch that It is going to have
a streak of luck and win out In that
game. It did not miss It so very far this
year. Dick Smith had a hunch that they
were stronger than any team which has
come from Eugene for the Thanksgiving
day game in several years. But even that
team was licked, and now. If the Seattle
story Is to be accredited. It has its an

there Is no use playing Multnomah again.
Oregon and Multnomah are not on bad
terms. They were never on better terms
than at the present time. But Oregon
feels that It has no chance with the
heavy clubmen, and wishes, naturally, for
a team of Its own size for the best day of
the year. In Washington. In spite of the
bombastic talks from that Institution
since It met a "road" eleven from Berk

by the Washington manager as to believe
that he can find a better game, as far as
gate receipts go. than the annual game
with Multnomah. To get a big crowd for
the Multnomah game, moreover, it must
be played on Thanksgiving day. No other

doubt that by the time It comes for the

MURPHY IS IN AGAIN.
Battling" Nelson and His Manager
Swear Friendship Over Supper.
SAN FRANCISCO. Dec. 26. tSpecUil.)
-"Battling" Nelson and Teddy Murphy
have kissed and made up. Tod has
given Nelson a long story about taking"
the money only to keep Nelscr from
the temptations of a big city.
The boy-manager got his youthful
charge under his arm last night and
bought him a Christmas dinner. There
was wine and good tbllowship, and by
morning Nelson was convinced that
Murphy is his friend. So they have
igreed to forget the little episode of .
Ted's elopement with the $9000 draft !
and do business as before. Nelson has i
puzzled his friends hore once more by I

LANGUAGE OF BEGGARS.
Nicknames Used by Professional Pan
handlers In Bowery.
In describing their possessions and their
environment, professional beggars use
nicknames. Thus a cent Is known as an
"Indian." Other coins are known as
"white money." A detective Is a "bull"
and a policeman Is a "bull In harness."
A thief Is a "gun" and a pickpocket Is a
"dip." A gold watch Is a "red kettle."
Stamps Jtre known as "stickers." Money
Is "cush." A horse-car Is a "rattler.'
When a beggar Is arrested he Is said to
"fall." The workhouse Is known as the
"band-house." The penitentiary Is known
aa the "big house." A revolver is a
"rod." A beggar who gives out cards
on which are printed appealing blt3 of
rhyme Is known as a "throw out." One
who sits cross-legged on the walk Is
known as a "fiopper." One who holds you
up on the sidewalk is known aa a "strong
arm." So It runs on with so many ex
pressions covering so many figures of
speech that one not familiar with their
argot might listen to their talk or hours
without catching the real meaning of the
The Egyptian Fad. -
" Some time ago Daughter fixed up an In
dian corner, and the Indian craze . stalked
through the entire house. Later It was
the Dutch craze, and queer figures in
wooden shoes began to appear on every
thing from sofa cushions to plates. Now
Daughter has struck a new gait; It Is
the Egyptian fad. This Is the worst of
all. The Indian and the Dutch girl were
preferable to the figure built like a tri
angle. The Denver & Rio Grande scenery Is
even more beautiful la Winter than Sum
mer. Travel East via that line and spend
a day In Salt Lake City.
