Gaudaur Offers to Eow O'Connor for the
GENERAL SPORTING XEWS OF THE DAI
A talk with Mr. J. Walter Spalding on
baseball matters is always interesting and
instructive. He has been identified with
the national game for many years, and de
lights to talk about it He arrived in the
city from Kew York yesterday and left for
Chicago last evening. During a conversa
tion he expressed himself plainly regarding
the American Association and the graded sal
ary rule. He said:
"It seems to me that the Association authori
ties are not very clear as to what course tbey
will take in the matter. I saw Sir. lij rne, of the
Urookljn club, a few days ago, and he inti
mated that the Association may not adopt any
salary rule this season. The reason of this, he
ajs,is because almost all the plajcrs have
been signed or promises made to them.
HE LIKES THE SCHEME.
"Mr. Byrne, however, assured mo that the
more he thinks of the League salary rule the
more does he like it Of course, Mr. Byrne be
lieves that the League rule can be improved.
I do not anticipate any trouble by the Associa
tion postponing its action on the salary ques
tion. Rule or no rule, the Association must
reduce its salaries. There are only two clubs
in the organization that can maintain the high
salaries. These clubs are Brooklyn and Cin
cinnati. With this fact in view it is easy to see
that as a means of self-preservation the Asso
ciation will be compelled to reduce salaries so
that the League's new rule will, in a sense, be
in operation in the Association also. The fact
is players who are continually demanding
high salaries are really mjuni.g the game and
themselves. All there is in it is that clubs will
disband sooner than pay exorbitant salaries.
There are more players in the market now than
there ever w as. Of cour-o we sometimes are
unable to get the man we want but there is
plenty of choice. There is a difference betn een
now and 11 or 15 years ago. I remember on one
occasion on w Inch we, the Chicago CluK were
traveling with nine men, one of them took sick
nnd we couldn't secure a man to fill his place.
We could get a hundred men now almost at any
ABOUT THE AUSTRALIAN TBIP.
Speaking of tho Australian trip, Mr. Spalding
taid: "It ha3 so far been a gigantic success in
fact more so than we anticipated. I had a
cablegram from my brother two days ago, and
he states defln.tely that the clubs will play at
Bombay. Delhi and one or two other Indian
cities. The club wdl then go to Egypt and
lla one or two games under the shadow of the
PjramiUs. The latter will be the grandstand.
One or two games will also be played at Rome,
and -ue will invitethe I'opa to favor our plajcrs
ith his presence. We ill play at Brussels,
Paris and various English, Irish and Scotch
"I am confident that the effect of the trip
vill be good as far as baseball is concerned. It
will popularize the gaaie in this country, be
cause the wa m winch foreign potentates and
rulers have patronized the games will arouse
interest and curiosity here. lam convinced
that the time will come when we will play an
nually Tor the international championship; that
Is, English or other EuroDean clubs will play
ngainst Americans. Cricket playing in En
gland is not o popular with the masses as it
used to be; at least, there is not that public en
thusiasm about it as lormerly. The game is
too long and wearisome for modern times. It
is different with baseball, and as soon as any
body becomes in the least interested in It, they
begin to develop into enthusiasts. Most as
suredly our national game will become popular
in other countries."
LOOKS LIKE BUSINESS.

fcporting Editor of the Dispatch:

WHAT DEMPSEY SAYS.
The Nonpnrcll Thinks That Sullivan and
Kilrain Are Well Mulched.
Balttsiobe, January 9. Jack DemDSey, the
middleweight pugilist, who is sparring here
with Denny Costigan, was asked his opinion of
the result of the Kilrain-Sullivan fight
"That is a hard question," said Dempsey.
"Such a fight would be a great one. Two men
could not be more evenly matched and yet use
different tactics. Both are born fighters,
clever sparrers and perfectlv familiar with both
the Marquis of Queensberry and London prize
ring rules. I like Kilrain, both for his pugil
istic abilities and as a friend. He should make
a great showing with the big feller. .Sullivan,
en the other hand, has been taking exception
ally good care of himself since his recent ill
ness, and should your Baltimore man meet him
in a few months, he will find Sullivan a formid
Dempsey continues his bitter attack on Mit
chell, calling him a coward. Dempsey and
Costigan spar in Pittsbuig next week.
THEIR ANNUAL MEETING.
The Ucrron Hill Gun Club Members Elect
The annual meeting of the Herron Hill Gun
Club was held last night at the gun store of W.
H. Bown, Smitbfield street There was a good
attendance of members. Tho reports read
were highly satisfactory, and showed that the
clnb has almost reached its membership limit.
It is chartered for 75 members, and that num
ber is nearly reached.
The following officers were elected for the
next 12 months: President, Samuel Shancr;
First Vice President, W. H Bown; Second
Vice President. Alf Lawton; Secretary and
Treasurer, E. E Shancr; Directors: C. Rich
nrason, J. A Herron and F. F. Davison: Cap
tain, E. E. Shancr.
It was decided to hold a big shoot on the first
Thursday of next month. Thei e will be one or
two large sweepstakes and two or three
matches. It is intended to make the affair one
nf the best of its kind that has been held here
for a long time.
TIIEl' BRAVED THE STORM.
Herron Hill Gun Club Members Hold an
Amid yesterday's storm the Herron Hill Gun
Club had a lively shooting contest on the club
grounds. The contest was a sweepstako of 51
each at 100 clay pigeons. There were 11
entries. The wind was so strong, however, that
good shooting was an impossibility. Follow
ing were the results: A. C. ICrugcr, 77, first;
E. E. Shaner, 72, second; Charles Richardson,
C8, and Q. A. McClure, C8, divided third money;
F. F. Davidson, 67, fourth. The non-winners

The Champion Bun Eater.
IFrECIAI, TELEGRAM TO THI DISPATCH.!
New York, January 9. William Lichtcn
berger, who stjlcs himself the champion bun
cater of America, has sent the following chal
lenge to Richard K. Fox for publication
Buffalo. JJ. Y January &-L, William Lich
tenberger, the champion bun eater of America,
do hereby challenge John C. Staub to cat buns
lor a stake of from S100 to $200 a side.
Eo Intimate. That Ilis Fight 'With Snllivan
May Not Take Place.
Regarding the arrangements for theproposed
battle for the championship, Kilrain says:
"My friends had to give way in everything to
bring Sullivan to terms. The baby is trying
even now to crawl out of the fight I don't
Believe in putting it off for six months. AVe
may both be dead by that time. Then the
Sullivan party proposes to choose a referee at
the ringside when we are ready to fight. That
is the silliest and most contemptible way any
one could suggest to get a Sullivan to referee
the fight or to caue a squabble at the last mo
ment that would postpone it. I can't say that
I will fight under the present arrangements.
Bullivan is a baby. He wants everything his
own way, and when he can't have it, he ac
cuses someone else of hindering the arrange
ment. I want to fight, but I don't want him to
be suited in everything and not be consulted at
all mvself. That isn't fair. I shall see my
friend's as soon as I reach Kew York, and then
we will see what can bo done."
WILL ROW O'CONNOR.
Jako Gaudanr'Anrions to Row tho Speedy
Patrons of aquatics will be somewhat sur
prised to learn that Jake Gandaur has chal
lenged William O'Connor to a boat nee for the
American championship. Gaudaur says ho
will row the Canadian a three-milo race, with a
turn, for f 1,000 a .side at New Orleans, Galves
ton or San Francisco on or about March L
Southern waters are named because O'Connor
intends to go to Australia
O'Connor, however, intends to start for San
Francisco this week, so that Gaudaur will have
to change his plans if wants to row O'Connor.
The latter is determined to go to Australia as
soon as possible, and his backers state that
Tecmer w ill not go. It has generally been con
sidered that Teemer is a superior sculler to
Gaudaur, and the wav in which O'Connor de
feated Teemer makes it surprising forGaudaur
to challenge the champion.
A number of the prominent pedestrians
passed through tho city yesterday en route for
San Francisco, where a 6-day race starts on
February 21. Among the pedestrians passing
through esterday were Bobby Vint, Howartb.
and E. C. Moore. They were under the care of
Manager Frank Hall. Another contingent will
pass through shortly, including Alberts, Herty
