Seattle, Wash., . Jan. 4 12. Dugdale's
baseball team will play In Athletic park
next year as of old. This fact -was made
certain yesterday .when a deal for the
sale of the park to William O. Mulcahy,
for the sum of $20,000, was consum
mated. The sum of $500 earnest money
was paid down,, and the balance will be
paid over as soon as the papers are
signed, by the eastern owners. It is a
ashtr Reaction
Mr. Mulcahy Is Manager Dugdale's pri
vate secretary, ' He will", transfer the
' propertyto a company that was formed
; to It. Dugdale engineered the
deal. There' are 32 lots in the park,
, right in 'the heart of the city, and the
deal' Is considered a good one by . real
'' estate men. - ' '...v';:"i'i..'V-A '
' The purchase of the park by a syndi
cate, of which Dugdale Is a member, puts
a quietus on the rumors from California
.'that Dugdale was trying to dispose Of
his Interests here. Instead of trying to
sell out, he has added greatly to his
- holdings and for the first, time the club
will .own Its own park.- ,.-.' m: y
The stories from California to the ef
fect that Dugdale has been trying to sell
, out have been persistent "' Dugdale has
denied them as fast as they appeared,
and last night he gave out a statement
.on the whole matter: . .,
Bag Vot Sold Out
"Never at any time," said he,' "have I
offered to sell my franchise. Some, time
ago parties who said they represented
the club In the other league came to me
" and talked consolidation. I told them
J wduld give them $11,000 for Recreation
park. They asked me it I would sell
at the same figure, and I told them yes.
- That Is the nearest approach to trying
to sell my Interests here I ever made,
and the proposition came from the other
side first. ., . .- ? , ..v,'1 - '
"We now own our own-park, so we
will have no worries on that score, in fu
ture. It Is the best site in the city-for
an athletlo park, and the land is worth
every cent we paid for it Instead of
wanting to dispose of my holdings here,
I want to add to them as fast as I can.
-' Seattle is my home, and no one can drive
me out of here. . r,-
"We will have our league meeting in a
few days now, and the circuit for next
year will be arranged. We finished last
season with four corking good cities
Seattle, Spokane, Butte and Salt Lake
and they will all be in the wsw circuit
We have applications from a number
of cities who want to get in with us,
and we can take our choice.
"It would not surprise me a bit If Ta
: coma ' were represented again in our
league. Tacoma belongs 'naturally with
us, and the fans over there generally
want our kind of ball. The Toma
publio is with us. and there is plenty of
backing there ready- to put up a team.
We are not looking for war. We did not
start the fight and have simply been
trying to protect our rights. Every man
has the right to- look after his own in
terests, and that 1s what we have been
trying to do. This was our territory

J. Maynard Is tho preu d possessor of
whereby the outlaw clubs will come in
under the national agreement. Along
in the early part of December the. mat
ter was taken up by the National asso
ciation, and . following , the suggestion
made a committee was appointed con
sisting of Presidents Hart Hanlon and
Johnson to go to San Francisco and at
tend the coast league meeting.
The Harris crowd declined to observe
the telegraphic request to delay the
meeting until the commissioners could
reach the coast but later appointed a
committee consisting of Harris, Morley
and Burt to meet the commission upon
its arrival in San Francisco and debate
the question. . At .that time it was th
belief of the coast people that they
would get all they asked for, which was
in the main that the league be taken
in as class A or major league. To this
there have been strong objections made
by President Powers of the National as
soclatlon.i It is expected that the com
mission will pass through Spokane some
day this week and in case the. Pacific
National meeting in on the prospects
are that the big magnates of the coast
will stop over and visit Mr. Lucas and
his aggregation of fighters. It, is be
lieved that the majority of the P. N. L.
dlreetom are opposed to any sort of
recognition of the, coast, league not
withstanding the fact that tney .nave
suffered through the Inroads of the out
laws on the P. N. L. list of players. At
the best it is argued, there cannot be
more than one season of harmony
among the coast magnates and the P.

past, they will be stronger than ever and
better equipped to fight a league which

Racing In 1903 reached the high tide
of prosperity.
In every part lcular the sport attained
the sensational. .
Records ' were broken .with , a : regu-;
larity that made old timers gasp, the
aggregate' suras hung up by the asso
ciations amounted to many fortunes, the
attendance was by far the largest in the
history Of the turf, and to. round out

men who are , in the game for sport's
sake alone. .
Eleven new world's records were
broken, some by degrees, and the hold
ers of some of the records retained their
honors but a few weeks. Track records
fell everywhere and came to be ac
cepted as a matter' of course.' The larg
est-number of really great horses that
ever raced in one season battled on the
tracks EaBt and West No one horse
stood out to be proclaimed as the great
est horse that ever lived, but more than
half a dosen are recognised as belonging
to the class of thoroughbreds whose
names will be ever remembered. , -KcChesney
or Waterboy.
'In the all-aged division waf a grand
trio, McChesney, Waterboy and Hermla,
to say nothing of Alan-a-Dale, Heno,
Major Dalngerfleld and others, McChes
ney and Waterboy are the acknowledged
loaders, and between them but few men
have dared to express a preference. "The
black son of Watercress soon displaced
Hermls as the popular Idol, but the
horsemen of the West will always, be
lieve that when McChesney invaded his
stronghold the trainer of the Haggln
pride dodged the Issue. Waterboy added
a world's record to his other laurels,
putting the mark for a mile and a quar
ter at 2:03 1-6. McChesney, after a bad
start at Memphis, made his third sea
son on the turf even greater than, his
first two, and the magnificent long
striding son of MacDuff proved himself
a race horse of wonderful courage,
speed, and ability to carry weight Her

the season, but showed his true form
later, though never demonstrating that
he had the class of either, of the other
Dick Welles the Marvel.
In the 3-year-old division, Dick Welles,
by his phenomenal exhibitions of speed,
made himself the most talked-of horse
of the year, and the question of how fast
he can run was never answered. The
most marvelous sprinter of any season,
he carried his speed as far as he was
ever asked, and the only regret of the
sportsmen of the country Is that the
son of King Eric-Tea's Over was never
given his full weight and asked to beat
the champions of all ages over a dis
tance of ground. That he could have
done so, many horsemen believe, and
It Is unfortunate that he was never given
the opportunity. Next season his owner
has promised to give him a chance at
the big Eastern handicaps. Two world's
records fell to him, the six furlongs
and the standard distance, the mile.
The 8-year-olds which raced most con
sistently with others near their class
were The Picket Africander and Irish
Lad. Eastern horsemen give the cham
pionship to Africander, the biggest
money winner of the year. Irish Lad
is not without his supporters, and tho
game son of . Candlemas is certainly
entitled to recognition. , ... r
The Picket bred, raised, owned and
trained In Louisville, Is not to be for
gotten. He never started until American
Derby-day, and then broke out of the
maiden class by winning In track-record
time.. He was never beaten by a-8-year-
old and defeated Africander In easy fash
ion." Another, 8-year-old of mark-class
Is Claude, ..the- Iron horse, who traveled
thousands of miles and won under the
most adverse . conditions. . His second
to The Picket' in the American derby,

will have to finish the first half of he
season In Callfqrnta, allowing Tacoma
and Seattle to finish : the pennant race
In July on Puget sound, closing in one
city, probably Tacoma. and opening the
second race in the other."
So said Manager Mlque Fisher, upon
the Coast league meeting In San Fran
cisco. : Fisher found his new diggings
ready and waiting for him, . Fanlorn
has faith in Fisher's ability to Wake
good anything he promises, and when,
he says so emphatically that Tacoma
will be allowed to finish the first half
of the season North they believe him.
According to Fisher's plan; Portland
will be compelled to finish both halves
of 'the Season in the South,' as only two
of the Northern cities can finish North,
Tacoma fans are demanding the privil
ege of seeing at least one pennant race
finished here, and Fisher Is trying to ac
commodate them, t.
The schedule la still In skeleton form,.
however, and Fisher ha,s little to say
about it except that he will open in
Fresno with Portland. This will be fol-.
lowing old traditions, for in the ante
bellum days Portland and Tacoma al
ways started the ball rolling on tho
same diamond. . ' ... , ,

Fisher denies the statements circu
lated regarding the Fresno grounds.
"The Tacoma team will play no. more
ball on the Fresno . grounds than any
other team.. We will open and close
the season there, but each team will
play an equal number of games at
Fresno during the season.) It is a good
ball town, and will pay well. The teams
playing there will split . the money
equally between them. ; I ' don't gee a
rake-off on the grounds. I'll take my.
share equally with all -the rest In con
sideration of my getting the lease of
the Fresno grounds and interesting
Fresno people In the proposition, I have
been given the fence and Score-card

Fisher is busy now forming a stock

lease of his park, which is centrally
President W. H. Lucas of the Paclfio
National league is also In town, having
completed a tour'of his circuit. He has
caiiea a meeting or the representatives
of the. Pacific National cities for next
Saturday afternoon at Spokane.

Lucas has also announced his intention
of leaving Tacoma and transferring his
headquarters to Spokane, which will ba
in' the center of his proposed circuit.
which according to present -plans, . will
stretch from Seattle to Salt Lake. -
"But I have not deserted Tacoma."
says Mr. Lucas. '"I have not given "up
hopes of having a Pacific National league
team in Tacoma even yet"
The announcement that D. E Dug
date has formed a combination which
has purchased the old Athletlo park In,
Seattle for J 20,000, and that he will
play ball at the same old stand this
season -is meant to allay the suspicions
which have been floating freely in Pa
cific National circles for some time. Tho
Montana and Spokane people have been
afraid of Dugdale's playing them false,
and they have watched his movements
closely. Dugdale was once called tho
"brains" of Lucas' league, but he Is
thought to have made overtures to tha
Coast league people this season,- and
the magnates of the Paclfio National
league have been - fearful of a trick.
President Lucas has maintained per
fect faith In Dugdale's. constancy, but
he has emphatically announced that
never again will he. be . president ef a
league which does not compel each and
every club to put up Its forfeit money
In advance. This is charming inconsis
tency on Lucas' part as it was Lucas'
failure to collect this forfeit money last
season from ' Seattle,': Helena, and other
clubs which put the Pacific National lr
a hole. -.... . :,-. :..-:.'.
Lucas regards Dugdale's purchase of
the old park as a vindication of his
faith in the Seattle magnate. He saya
he la sure of four cities Seattle, Spo
kane, Butte and Salt Iake, and repre
sentatives of these cities will be st
Spokane Saturday. Ogden Is ready, ha
says, to come In If he can get a team
