Good Races nt Coney Island and Big Money
ISrtCIAL TELEGItAM TO THE DISPATCH.:
New York, May 15. The Coney Island
Jockey Club spring meeting opened to-day, the
attendance being larger than on any former
opening day. The usual opening dash of fire
furlongs was won by Dwyer's Pontiac, at odds
as high as 40 to L The Dwyer brothers backed
llnttanic for a large amount of money, the
odds being driven down 9 to 5 by the pnblic
and the talent generally. Pontiac won easily.
Bnttanic, at the head of the stretch, made an
effort to go to the front, but was setecd with a
spell of Weeding at the nose, and shut up like
The double event was won by Colonel Scott's
Torso in hollow style. Some people are begin
ning to wonder if the millionaire horse owners
have a mortgage on the rich 2-year-old stakes.
First it is ex-Congressman Scott, then Banker
Belmont or Millionaire Moms whose colors
dash by the wire. First they seem to take turn
about in winning all the rich stakes.
Mr. Dave Pulsifer, with whom Charles
Black, ot Pittsburg, is associated in the book
on his horse Tenny to-day. Mr. Pulsifer backed
his horse in the winter books at odds of 50 to 1,
and closed all the books at that price. He went
to the post to-day at 4 to 5, and won easily. Mr.
Black held him out in the book and won pretty
Jockey Taylor rode in five races to-day and
was first in three and second in the other two.
His followers realized quite a sum on his
mounts. One young man went to the track
with SIS and placed S15 on Pontiac at odds of 40
to L He backed Taylor's mounts clear through,
both straight and place, and landed in the city
to-night a happy man and 3,700 strong.
TEXNT IX GEEAT LUCK.
Tenny is engaged in the Realization stakes to
be run July 2. and everybody wants tolmow
how they are going to beat him. His weight
only 107 pounds. The stake is worth HSO, and
the one he won to-day was worth neajffy S10.000.

Jimmy Surprised Them.
We gave the record of two days last week,
Dut the result of the succeeding play for the
week was something entirely unlooked for by
the friends of both the players. That Reed
should win the first game could not be counted
a surprise, but that he should go right ahead
and score win after win complete surprise
does not express it. It really dumfonnds tho
adherents of both, and the query comes from
all sides, "what is the matter with Barker?"
We all know what Barker has done in match
playing; that be has been given tho credit of
being the best match player Jiving: but Reed
has never been looked on as such, and it proves
now that he has never been properly cared for
by any one when playing a match. This time
his friends have carefully coached, advised and
cared for him, and he now shows what is in
him as to his knowledge of the game, and to his
merits as being a match player. Every mem
ber of the Chicago clnb Is ins friend, and to the
Interest taken in him as advisers, particularly
by Messrs. Hefter, Baker and Hopkins should
credit be given for the nneqnaled score made
by him tho past week. Turf, Field and Farm.
Champion Green at Erie.
If rECIAL TtXEGUAX TO TIIX DISFATCH.1
Erie, Pa, June 15. There is a great furor
hero in athletic circles by the appearance to
day of Charles Green, the champion catch-as-catch-can
wrestler of England. Mr. Green
made a general challenge to-night, and to
Thomas Cannon in particular, for 200 a side.
He will train here. Dennis Gallagher, of Buf
falo, has also come to make a match with Hugh
Leonard, Muldoon's protege. Leonard wants
to wrestle catch-as-catch-can or Gncco-Boman
and Gallagher wants a mixed match.
TIIE CREWS GETTING READY.
Harvard' Representatives Arrive nt Lon
don Tor ext Week's Rneca.
rSFECIAL TELEGRAM TO TUX DISPATCH.1
New London, Conn.,. June 15. The Har
vard 'Varsity and freshmen crews arrived at
New London this afternoon, and were taken
directly to their quarters on the Grotop side of
the Thames river, near Gale's ferry. The fresh
men are within hailing distance of their elder
brothers, and their boats are at the 'varsity
floats. The two crews have quite an assort
ment of shells with them. Tbero are three-cight-oarcd
shells, one paper and two cedar, all
new boats. Beside these crew racers, there aro
two singlo sculls, a double scull and one pair
oar. Tho 'Varsity will probably row their race
with Yale in the new cedar shell which has
been completed by Biakie, the Cambridge
The stroke the Harvard men are rowing is so
similar to the Yale stroke, the one known as
tho "Bob Cook stroke," that when tho crews are
side by side there will be scarcely any difference
noticeable. The '9 'Varsity of Harvard, in fact,
have adopted the chief points of merit of the
Yalo stroke. Captain Herrick, who is apracti
cal oarsman himself, had the very best advice
in the perfecting of this new movement. To
gether with Mr. L Sterrow, 'S5, who has Been
coaching the eight for the last month, and the
professional oarsman Faulkner, Captain Her
nek has developed a very clumsy stroke into as
neat and clean an oar as Harvard's crew have
e or pulled.
Yale has, until recently, expected to use a
new Waters shell which was ordered early in
tho year, but owing to some sl8ght damages
which it sustained in transportation, the crew
may be compelled to use a less satisfactory
boat. The men, as they rowed this morning,
are: Stroke. Captain R. F. Herrick. age 22,
weight 154, 7: J. B. Hutchinson, 21, 15 B; a F.
Tilton. 20. 182. 5; J. R. Finlay, 19. 168, 4; J. a
Cranston, 23, 184, 3; E. C. Storow, 21, 144, 2: f.
Longworth, 2a 1G5. Bow, G. Perry, 21, 162.
The Harvard eight are: Stroke. J. H. God
dard. weight 172, 7: Captain J. H. Kidder, 156,

Dewey, 156. Bow, N. Bantone, 153. Coxswain,

Mr. Alexander is expected to join the men on
Monday. Dr. A. B. Halt, of Harvard, is also
expected Monday. He comes to oversee the
examination which the Freshmen will have at
their quarters. It is expected that Monday
morning will see nine crews unon the Thames.
The crews are Harvard 'Varsity. Harvard
Freshmen, Columbia 'Varsity, Columbia Fresh
men, Pennsylvania 'Varsity, Pennsylvania
Freshmen, Cornell 'Varsity. The programme
of the races as near as can be determined now
will be: June 21, Yale-Pennsylvania: June 25,

THE RACE POSTPONED.
Muddy Tracks Stop the Klklrk-McClelland
On account of the wretched condition of the
local tracks the foot race between Ed. Nikirk
and E. C. McClelland has been postponed until
next Saturday. The two runners signed an
ironclad agreement yesterday whereby they
must run at Exposition Park on Saturday next
if the track is not flooded. If it is flooded the
race js to take place on Homewood track rain
The agreement is probably the best that
could be arrived at. The race is on its merits,
and a square foot race is such a rarity here that
many people would like to- see it. Certainly
the postponement will make the training ex
penses larger, but each will suffer alike.
The entire stakes. $250 a side, were deposited
with The Dispatch yesterday, and it is safe to
say that partisan feeling never ran so high in a
local event as in the one in question. Betting
was extremely lively at even money. Both par,
ties are confident of victory and the rarn"era
are in good condition. The distance ttf run is a
mile and a half, and the race w'Ji take place
between the hours of 4 and 6 pji.
Snllivou la Ffiorltc.
Chicago, June 15. .'nere is much interest
manifested here ovr the Sullivan and Kilrain
fight for the -PoHc-e Gazettt champion belt, $20,
000 and the championship of the world. As the
date for the Uattle approaches those who have
maintained -John l, would win are getting more
confident'daiiy as the big fellow continues to
show hjj means business. His training has been
conJjnued carefully, and he is already in excel
lent form. The time for the battle has drawn

never come on are graauauy giving up tneir
steadfastness to their opinions. As the betting
stands, Sullivan's backers in this city are giving
odds of $1,000 to $800. Kilrain has, however,
gained many followers by his quiet And modest
way, and quite a number of members of the
Board of Trade have planted several large bets
on the chances of his success, in many cases lay
ing even money. A special train will leave this
citv with Chas. E. Cans, Billy Lakeman, Mike
McDonald aud John Charles, of Baltimore, all
of whom are great admirers of Kilrain. The
Chicago contingent will leave on July L
Murphy is All Right.
Isaac Murphy is a remarkable jockey, and
from present indications he is liable to con
tinue in the saddle as long as "old Bill" Hay
ward has been riding, which some people say is
40 years. It was fully written np by a number
of turf writers, who have many ideas and few
facts in their heads, that he was getting so
heavy that this would probably be his last sea
son. The facts are Isaac has had as little
trouble in reducing this season as be ever bad,
and he rode Los Angeles at 112 pounds during
the week. With a few dajs of hot weather he
could ride at 110 pounds without any extra
effort. The cold, wet season has been against
all the jockeys that have to reduce, and Mc
Laughlin especially has felt the need of good
sweating weather. No matter how much walk
ing a jockey may do to bring on a sweat, if it
is cold enough to dry the sweat in that closes
the pores of the skin, and there is no reduc
tion, but a weakening sensation. McLaughlin
can now ride at 120 pounds on a pinch, and if
the weather would stay warm for a few days
be could easily get down to 118 pounds, or pos
sibly to the 115 pounds that his contract with
the Chicago Stable calls lor. Horseman.
Good Pigeon Flying.
The Pittsburg Homing Club sent several
birds to Greenville, Intl., on Thursday last, to
Mr. John Eagan, the gentlemanly telegraph
operator at that point, who kinaly liberated six
birds at 8.15 o'clock Friday morning, central
standard time. The first bird to return was
"Little Henry" on yesterday morning, belong
ing to the loft of Mr. William Hillebrecht, who
resides at 754 W-ird street, Oakland. The
time made, ol course, was not extraordinary,
owing to the severe storms in roost every sec
tion. The distance being 309 1-10 miles, air

July last, in more favorable weather, in the re
markable time of eight hours, averaging 1,133
yards per minute. This race is the fourth of a
series which have taken place this season.

rSPECIAL TELEORAit TO THE DtBPATCB.1
Baltimore, June 15. Manager Davidson ar
rived here this morning, accompanied by Presi
dent' Wikoff. He at once went to the hotel and
met the rebellious players. The latter said
they were willing to play to-day, providing
their fines were remitted. To this Davidson
refused to agree, and informed the men that
each one of the six was fined 3100 for not going
out on the grounds yesterday. Thereupon the
boys said they would not play.
"Yery well, remarked Davidson, "It will
cost you each another hundred."
About noon thb playershad second confer
ence with Davidson. Hecker told the mana
ger that the men did not wish to lessen tho
profits or the Baltimore club by not playing,
and would therefore make a concession.
"Well, what do you want?" asked Davidson.
"If you will remit the J100 fines for yester
day's non-appearance," replied Hecker, "we
will play to-day, and let the directors of the
Association decide whether or not Thursday's
fines must stand against us."
"I will remit nothing," said Davidson.
"Those S100 fines go, and so do the others. If
you go to-day and make any errors, you will be
fined again, and if you don't go out, it will cost
you each another 100."
Utterly disgusted with this, the men de
manded that they receive tickets back to
Louisville, so that they may go borne; but
Davidson refused them point blank, and also
declined to give them a statement of how they
stood financially with the club.
Manager Barnic, of the Baltimore club, suc
ceeded to-night in persuading tho disaffected
Louisville players to agree to play oil Monday.
Hecker, Cook and Shannon called on Barnie,
who bad just returned from a Southern trip,
and presented their grievances. Barnie told
them they were making a mistake in not play
ing, and were rendering themselves liable to
expulsion. He told them to play, and rely on
the Association to right them. They agreed to
do so, and havo notified Mr. Davidson they will
report on Monday.
DOWN ON DAVIDSON.
The Zionisvllle Enthusiasts Wnnt Him to
Retire From the Club.
rSPECTAL TKLXOnAM TO Till DISPATCIM
Louisville, Ky., June 15. The trouble with
the Louisville club is no surprise to people
here. The local papers are all calling outrf hat
Davidson withdrew from all connection with
tbo club and should he buy a doysfTof players
no one would have any confidence in him.
Ever since the opening. o! the ball season tho
people have beea-tuivinced of the fact that
Mr. Davidson is the very worst manager who
ever haiL-Sny connection with the National
E?oi only has he entirely destroyed public
confidence in the game to such an extent that
it will be difficult to resurrect it but he has
effectually rendered the members of the club
incapable of playing good ball. No one with a
grain of sense can believe that the Louisville
club are not stronger than the Kansas City and
Columbus teams, yet they have been steadily
playing worse ball than any nine in the South
ern league. This is due solely to bad manage
ment The men are completely demoralized
and backed, and In such a condition cannot do
The strike among the players in Baltimore is
what has been expected for a month or more
by those acquainted with the workings of the
club. Mr. Davidson is simply mad at his fail
ure to do any good with the club, and in order
to avoid paying much in the way of salaries has
a habit of fining the men every time they make
an error. The players have telegraphed here
that Davidson owqs them a month's salary.

the games were about half over a heavy thun

between Conneff, of the M. A. C, and Dohm,
Of Princeton College, was run before the storm
came on. Tho. track Js a quarter of a mile, and
to-day was in good condition, but rather heavy.
At the crack of the pistol Conneff started off at
a break-neck rate, with Dohm several yards
behind. The first qnarter "was dono in 56
seconds, with Conneff still in the lead,
but evidently weakening a little. On the
last lap Dohm drew uptablsheelsandfollowed
him closely until within 100 yards of the finish.
Then, by a magnlfiocnt spurt be "passed Con

were completely done outat the finish, and were
only moving in the last few yards.

list ln the quarter and half-mile runs. This is
tho second time he has defeated Conneff In the
half, the first being at a recent meeting of the
Columbia Athletic Association. At the East

ago, Dohm won the quarter easily over W. C,

The Iareo crowd which witnessed the games
was somewhat disturbed by the fact
that a barn within 200 yards of the grand stand
was struck by lightning and burned up.
