And still ire Jave to say a few -words
about the League and the Brotherhood.
There is no way to avoid it because in the
s porting world during the week it has been
Brotherhood in the morning, Brotherhood
at neon and Brotherhood at night One of
the most interesting features of this Brother
hood affair, during this Brotherhood week,
has been the story of Mr. Johnson, ol Cleve
land, A. C. Johnson, I think. Well, in a
very long story, remarkable for its inac
curacies, according to Manager Eanlon,
Mr. Johnson frankly tells the world why he
is interesting himself in the baseball busi
ness. It is cot to make money, not a bit of
it, as far as anything of such a sordid nature
like that is concerned, Mr. Johnson is now
on too high a plane to stoop to such a thins.
He has resolved to metaphorically offer
himself up as a sacrifice for the
4 according to some, modern historians is worse
11 than was that of the Israelites under Pharaoh;
that of the Poles under the bloodthirsty and
' desperate tyranny of Bussia,or even that of the
Italians under the fiendish treatment of the
A'ustrians. Doubtless his mission, self-imposed
at that I presume, is, or at least ought to
be considered a coble one. The burden of a
ball player nowadays is probably more than can
be tolerated. It may be one of Mr. Johnson's
aims to see that this poor and strugglinc ser
vant of the people should have more leisure
than is cow meted out to him. It is a fact that
he performs six or seven months in the year
for the paltry sum of 13,000 or $4,000, and even
at that his daily toil sometimes extends into
the -third hour. Doubtless, Mr. Johnson's
philanthropic snint may become so powerful
that he'll think it a very tyrannical state of
things to see a hall player doing any wort at
all. Oh! What a blessing it would be
If a Mr. Johnson imbued with all the1
spirit of philanthropby that our Cleveland
Mr. Johnson possesses, would spring up and,
for instance, try and improve the lot of those
poor overworked and underpaid street car con
tactors. The ball playtr's lot may be a hard
me, but even he, poor wretch, invariably earns
lore in an hour than a driver or a conductor
irns in a month. When we reflect a moment
- two it does seem strange that a Mr. Johnson
seme kind, whose heart is overflowing with
sympathy for the oppressed, does not observe
the -sufferings of street car employes In some
cities; or even notice the exacting toil of re
porters, who, for 10 or $15 per week, are daily
telling the story of the sufferings and unjust
, treatment of S250-per-day ball players. Surely
mere is -gomeming rotten in ice Btate of Den
mark." w w
" Well, now we are within a day of the meet
ing that is to decide the destinies of cot only
the National League, but those of the national
game entirely. Mark, I don't say that the
meeting is to do as just remarked; I am repeat
ing information that has been pretty freely
circulated. To tell the truth, I don't know
what the meeting will do, and, therefore, I
it won't venture to say. wnat concerns me to
miimA a-rant- let V-Tia nnncfiAti n a -ii wVt a-, a ,
cot the players or Brotherhood will conde
scend after their meeting to tell the world
what they have dcne;acd what death knell they
have tolled. I am prepared to bear the
most extraordinary things as the result of that
meeting. JfTascott and the Plying Dutchman
were to loom up at that meeting as president
and secretary 1 vow I will not be surprised, or
if the players decide that the National League
is a splendid organization and that they'll
never leave It or ask any concessions, 1 pledge
myself that I won't be startled. I would iike
to meet a man who knows what that meeting
will do. Almost every member of the Brother
hood during the week has had a try in telling
what is going to be done, and everyone has told
a story quite different from the others. How
ever, thin makes it interesting, and the most
wonderful result will be if the meeting comes
to a conclusion that somebody has not already
euessed,-' But to look at the matter serionslv I
feel quite convinced that the players mean
fight; they may not be as well prepared for a
conflict as they would have us believe, but that
they mean to be hostile there is no doubt, but
that they are as eager to sever themselves from
the National League, as many people think, I
question vtry much. A friend of mine, a local
ball player, told me the other day that he, nor
any other Xeatrne player that he knew of,' bad
signed, pr had-been asked to sign, anything like
a Brotherhood contract, that is, a contract to
play ball. This is a fact, and I take it to mean
that the players will have sense enough to take
no definite steps until they have conferred with
the magnates. Of course, the players have
grievances of which they justly complain, but
oodness knows that these grievances are not
yfar as oppressive or tyrannical as many en
thusiasts assert. Well, then, if these grievances
are remedied t e will have the National League
with us next yea as usual. If the magnates
Ehculd get on their dignity, I am really inclined
to think that open hostilities will be "declared,
and this will be exceedingly unfortunate for the
national game. But whether or not
the players start out on their
own "hook"' does not alter my opinion of the
wisdom of severing themselves from the
League. Should they do so. 1 repeat that their
cour-e'will be a bad one. Keasons for thinking
this have already been given in previous re
yiens. I don't expect that the threat of the
minor leacues will have anv inflnenro nn n,
League. At present the League and Associa
tion are much more powerful than the smaller
bodies, and the latter would surelv get the
worst of any rebellion they commence'd.
There Is a very important question down for
discussion at the annual meeting of the Ameri-
can Turf Congress, which is to be held in
"iCbicago'on the 13th inst. It is the question of
licensing jockeys, and everybody at all In-
Er terested In turf affairs will readily see that the
, .matter Is of the gravest importance. Last year
the Congress did excellent work in revising
xne weiguts. i liat change was very important
indeed, but It is questiouable whether or not
the great question to be discussed at the ap-
p:oaching meeting is not even more important.
Most certainly great progress has been made rh
9the morality of the American turf, but cone of
us will for a moment contend that there is
no room for improvement. If we are to
. believe some of the most prominent patrons of
the turf there is yet a considerable amount
- orXdishonestyand particularly among jockeys.
'The latter are in a position to rob their employ-
k. era and the public in man v ways. Unfortu
fnatelylt Is true that many or these little
'knichts of the pig skin have been susceptible
;V to the sinister inducements of thieving scoun-
.'drels. who make a livine bycarticinatinr-ln
"" 'turf frauds. If jockeys had to appear every
, January before a national board and seenre a
license to ride during the 5 ear, depend upon it
. they would be mure careful as far as their con
duct when in the saddle was concerned. The
, 'least suspicion of dishonesty would be thorough
ly traced and every questionable act of a Jockey,
, ' whether of ereat or small importance, would
jeopardize his license. I have strong hope that
the Conirress will resolve to adopt this licensing
jplan. because it will, more than anything else,
,;rid the turf of fraudulent jockeys. The sys-
xem. cas workea well in .cnpiana. ana has en
jjabled the National Jockey Club there to purge
Ithc turf of some very prominent people whose
acts of dishonesty bad become notorious. Even
fa great personage like Charles Wood, the lead
lng jockey-of the country, had his license re
II used, and that meant the termination uf his
scarcer as a jockey. If a license- system were
in operation here some very prominent jockeys

be local cricket season baa come to an end.
land the bat, ball and wicket art laid aside till
pieit year. I regret extremejr to have to say
that cricket has not by any means been asne
icess In this city during the recent season. I
don't use the word success to mean that the
ickat cVub-bas tot mademoney, because that
iSaotthe object desired. What I mean is, the
game has failed to be as much admired here as
in previous years. We cannot shut our eyes to
this fact. Of course, there have not been
the usnal number of matches played
during the season, and there has not been
any special ft attraction to secure the
attention of the public, but there seems
to be such an indifference about the game that
very few people would miss it were it to drop
out of our lists of local sport here. This is to
be regretted, for, after all, the good old game
is one of the best outdoor sports that we have
to-day. However, I den't contemplate that we
will lose it entirely; on the contrary, I am In
clined to think that next year, if all goes well,
we will have an unusually good supply of
cricket. There are plenty of young players in
and about the city, but what is required is to
have some prominent visitors. The visit of a
good team of strangers does more to help
cricket to popularity than anything else.
However, I don't expect to ever see cricket
playing engraft itself on the minds -of our
citizens no more than expect to see baseball
popular in England. Our national game, as I
have often said, will not become a popular sport
ot the English, and it is just as certain that
cricket playing will never become popular here.
But there is one feature in the local cricket
club that ought to prompt all of Us to give the
club all the help possible. I refer to the fact
that every member of the cricket team pays his
own expenses both when playing at home and
when abroad. If this is not a patriotism of
sport worthy of admiration I never knew what
was. The players are not wealthy they are all
working for salaries at one kind of employment
or another and it is only theirsincere devotion
to the game that prompts them to make the
sacrifices for it. Surely this is nroof enough for
us to give the players all the encouragement
A few days ago The Dispatch published an
interview with a prominent authority on trot
ting races who frequently visits this city. Iu
that interview the authority, who, by the way,
is an intimate friend of mine, went on to say
that in a short time there will be trotting race
meetings in America from year's end to year's
end. By this he meant that in winter there will
"be meetings in California; in the spring there
.and fall we will have the regular meetings in
the East as at present. He also went on to say
that the South will soon hare a first-class circuit
something like our grand circuit, and he added
that trotting races would eventually become
more popular than running races. Now all this
is very interesting, and there is reason to
think that there is considerable truth connected
with it. There never was a time when so much
money was invested in trotting horses as at
present, and that in itself means an increasing
popularity of the sport. We hare often been
told that money makes the mare to go, whether
she will or no, and just as sure extraordinary in
vestments will popularize trotting races. How
ever, to contend that trotting races will outstep
running races in popularity Is a very bold con
tention. To a certain extent this may be true,
but I don't admit the truth of It if we assume
that both sports are placed on an equal footing.
In places like New York, where there is such a
bigclass of "people of leisure,"rnnningraces will
always be popular and will flourish where the
best trotting races that ever took pUtbe would
be financial failures. It is this class of leisure
people, together with the constant,, immense
floating population that more than anything
else keeps the running races popular. But

popular and less wealthy places than New
York, and I venture to say that the runners will
not be so popular. In my way of thinking then,
it seems that just as cities get larger and
wealthier so will running races become more
The other day I read with considerable inter
est an English account of the Slavin-Goode
glove contest, which took place at Astley's
Theater, London. The account was interesting
because it was almost the first time there has
been a chance to get an ideaof SlaVin's abilities
as a boxer and to some extent a fighter. The
extraordinary abilities of Slavin had been her
alded from one side of the globe to the other,
bnt few of us knew exactly what he was like in
a fistic encounter as compared with our talent.
It was a curiosity to learn this that made the
contest between the Australian and Bill Goode
of any importance at all. Well, the contest is
over, and of course Slavin won it, but we are
still to a cregt extent short of
a complete knowledge . as to what
blavin can do. I have alreadv made my mind
up as to what he cannot do. He cannot defeat
a first-class heavyweight pucilist. He settled
Goode in four and a half rounds, but he was
six inches taller and about 54 pounds heavier
than Goode Slavin is 6 feet 1 inch in height
and weighed about 210 pounds when he met
Goode. Great Scott; what a giant compared
with Goode. I suppose the contrast between
t iem when tbey entered the ring was so great
as to be amusing. This contrast, undoubtedly,
took considerable interest out of the contest as
it was soon seen that as game and as clever as
Goode is he could not hold his own with the big
man from Australia. However, one thing was
demonstrated beyond a doubt and that was that
Slavin has much to learn before he can be con
sidered a good boxer. Goode made a child of
him as far as scientific display was concerned,
but the big man simply stood and smiled;
looked down on the little fellow, reached clean
over his guard and knocked him down. Promi
nent authorities state that any good heavy
weight will defeat Slavin. How far this
opinion Is true I don't know, because I have
never seen Slavin, but I am con
vinced be is no boxer. Well, cow, Slavin
claims that -he is superior to Peter Jackson
and if this is true, Jackson is not the man we
have been led to believe he is. But I don't be
lieve Slavin. I don't mean to say that he is
telling a willful falsehood, but I say he has.
either an overestimation of himself or is under
estimating Jackson. I would like to see an en
counter between a man like Jack Ashton and
Slavin. I am Inclined to believe that Ashton
would give the Australian all that be desired.
At any rate, the Providence pugilist would be
jnst as good a trial horse as the Australian
would wish, it may be that these two men
may meet if Slavin visits this country.
Quite n Surprise.
The Britishers are the only ones at present
who are keeping pugilistic matters lively. They
have several good contests billed, and perhaps
the most significant is that between Smith and
Jackson. A few days ago it was decided that
the ten-round contest between them take place
in London on the 12th inst. "When that an
nouncement was cabled over here, connected
with it was another statement which really
startled me. The world was told that the bet
ting was 6 to t on Smith. This was strange,
and if no mistake in figures was made in the
transmission of the message, considerable ex
planation is needed to show us why
such odds-should be bet on Smith. If the odds
are just Smith must certainly have been fool
ing the people during the last few years, or
else Jackson is a complete failure. But it may
be tbat somebody knows all about it, and if
this is the casetheie need be no surprise if
there is 10 to 1 on Smith.
The Home Pugilists.
There is nothing of very great Importance
happening among the pugilistic fraternity this
side the Atlantic Of course we all know' of
the escapade of Sullivan and bis boon compan
ions and its serious results. The occurrence
cannot fail to have a great influence toward
making pugilism less popular than it is. Be
cently that branch of sport has been rapidly on
the wane, the chief cause being the public con
due of those who were making lots of money
in it. The downward course was accelerated
by the stand taken by the Mississippi authori
ties regarding the Sullrvan-Kilrain fight, and
now the disgraceful conduct of Sullivan and
his disreputable following has given .the sport
another blow. It seems to me to
be as sure as we lire that pugil
ism in this country has seen its best
days and undoubtedly this is a blessing. Take
the pugilists and so-called pugilists of to-day as
a whole and one of the most disreputable
.classes of men in America will be found. There
are bright exceptions, but these exceptions
prove the rule. Society would certainly -be
much the better minus the army of pugilists
that now stock the country. The California
Club is probably doing all it can do toward
putting the sport on -a respectable basis audit
is pleasing to note that thatclub has succeeded
well so far. But that is only one club and its
influence cannot guide the entire country.
However, the club is a step in the right direc
tion, because, as it succeeds, exhibitions of fis
tic science will be taking questionable places
where fraud is often the object to a place where
honest gentlemen and risrid regulations keep
everything right. It would be better if not a
battle or contest Mere allowed, except in a
place such as the California Club. Speaking
of the club reminds me that there is a proba
bility of the proposed fight between Meyer and
Jim'lby Carroll not taking place. The former
has to tome extent weakened and 1
confess that I am cot suprised at that
When he and JlcAuliffe had their very profit
able affair some time ago I expressed my views
about Meyer at length. I have found no rea
son since then to change them, but I am more
than ever convinced that he is not the fistic ex
pert many people believe him to be. I am fully
convinced tbat he is not inclined to meet Car
roll.. chiefly because the latter is too good a
man. This fact combined with the other fact
that every encounter at the California Club has
to be on its merits has had a deal- of influence
on the mind of Mr. Meyer. However, it is
likely that Carroll will- find an opponent in
Jack McAnliffe. These wo lightweights
-should make a lively encounter, and should
tbey desire to meet the club will undoubtedly
offer a very handsome purio.

ness matters over. During the conversations
Domicick plainly intimated that if bis saloon
business did not improve . he would re-enter
the ring as a middleweight. It seems that
quite an army ot actors frequent Dominick's
place, and be is not by any means any the bet
ter for it financially. However, his business is
not as profitable as it ougbt to be, hence his
inclination to leave it 'Well, now, I-'don't
think that McCaffrey would mako a mistake
by re-entering pugilistic circles as a middle
weight. I bare always claimed that his proper
class was among the middleweight, and it he
was In that class I don't think there is a man
in it who could defeat him. He
states that be can easily get down
to 158 pounds, and that really would be the best
thing that he ever did. It may- be, therefore,
that within a short time be may definitely
challenge any middleweight in the world to a
battle at San Francisco. It Is certain that he
could defeat young Mitchell, the Marine r
Dempsey In a fight to a finish with the big
It is to be expected tbat there will, sooneror
later, be a battle between Jack AIcAuliffe and
Jimmy CarrolL The former's very business
like challenge means that he is eager for the
fray once more, and I venture to say that Car
roll won't hesitate. A contest between these
two lightweights would be very interesting, but
I am inclined to think that Carroll would come
out victorious. AIcAuliffe, I am informed,
weighs at present about 190 pounds, and he has
been living a little fast. This will certainly
tell against him if he ever faces a man like Car
roll. The latter is a good one, and has proved
that fact. - Pmngle.

PLAYERS CAN BE ENJOINED.
President J. B. Day Expresses a Hope of a
MR. FOLEI'S GOSSIP PROM .BOSTON;
Difficulties In the Way of Getting Grounds for a
' Brotherhood Team.
Some of the leading lawyers of New York
give their opinions about the League con
tract with players. The general opinion is
to the effect that the players must remain
with the League another year. Foley
writes a gossiping letter from Boston.
tSFECIAI. TELEGKAJI TO TBX DISFJLTCH.l
New Yobk, November 2. There was a
meeting of baseball men in this city to
day to take some action with regard to the
fight which the League players are making
against the managers. Several long opin
ions were submitted by prominent lawyers
which went to show that the players could
be held under the present reservation.
In the opinion of Evarts, Choate & Bea
man, they say: "You have asked us what
remedies the club should take in .case the l
players should undertake to break their
contract for the season of 1890. It might
ask the Court for an injunction and we should
expect the Court would enjoin them from play
ing elsewhere. Or it could proceed against
A SUIT FOB DAMAGES,
and recover such damages as should be sus
tained. Ve wonld also suggest whether or
not the club would not have the right tore
cover damages from outside parties who,
knowing of the contract between the club and
the players, had co-operated with the players
to organize other clubs, and at a result caused
the players to break their contracts with the
New York club.
"The principles of law which, in. our opin;
ion, should govern the courts in deciding the
rights of the parties under this contract are the
same as those that have been applied by the
courts in determination and obligations of
actors under their contracts with managers of
theaters, for a baseball club stands in the same
relation to baseball players employed by it that
the manager of a theater stands to the actors
employed by him, and there are many cases, as
you may know, in our New York courts where
actors and actresses, while under contract with
one manager, have been
ENJOINED FKOJI PLAYING
elsewhere, and we think that the courts ought
to enjoin the ball players from playing with
any club except the New York club."
J. C. F. Blackhurst says: "I have, therefore,
no hesitation in saying that the contract under
discussion is, first a valid and subsisting con
tract for personal services-of the party of the
second part as a baseball player for the season
George F. Duysters says: "I would say that
in my opinion a special action on the case will
lie against- any person who may assist, abet, or
entice the players to break their contracts with
the New York club having notice of such re
serve, or may harbor them after receiving such
ME. DAY'S HOPES.
President Day has this to say; "We are un
able to say that the League will or will not
authorize Its club members to enforce the
options conferred by contract upon the services
of reserved players. It is the earnest wish of
every officer of the New York ball club tbat
the very pleasant relations cow existing be
tween club and players may. continue and the
club will heartily join its players in an effort to
heal the breach now existing between the
Leacne and the Brotherhood with a firm con
viction that such effort will result success
fully." MR. SCOTT'S WINNINGS.

As will be seen by the above the victory of
Chaos in the Futurity is alone responsible for
Mr. Scott's prominence. The Futurity was
worth J54.550 to the winner. Chaos. Without
this Air. Scott's winnings would have reached
only $I7,2S5, a very handsome winning, it is
true, bat not enough to have placed himamong
the "six figure" winners like Mr. Belmont, Mr.
Haggin and Dwyer Bros., all of whom have
won over 100.000 the past year. Had Mr. Bel
mont's St. Carlo won the Futurity, it would
have put the Nursery stable very far In ad
vance or all others. In fact the Futurity is
likely every year to put its winner among the
first four or five '-winning owners."

A very interesting case with regard to pool
selling and bookmaking will shortly be argued
at Nashville. Tenn. Two years aeo the Legis
lature passed a bill prohibiting book betting
and the sale of pools on races run outside of
the State. After the adjournment of the last
session ot the Legislature it was discovered
tbat a clause in the revenue act fixed the li
cense on firms or individuals selling pools or
making book bets on races run on other thanTen
nessee tracks. The poolroom proprietors, who
contend that this clause repeals the act passed
at the session of 18S7, commenced offering bets,
and bave continued to do so ever since. Sev
eral were indicted by the grand jury, and it
was announced on October 24 tbat their counsel
and the Attorney General had agreed upon a
statement of - fact in two cases one for book
bettincr and one for pool selling and wonlH
i submit it to Judgo Ridley, of the Criminal
vjuuru X1U niit-uciu aiKuweuM buiiuTeiasor

Supreme Court for final settlement at the De
comber term of that tribunal. Spirit of the
TImKeefe has been talking again, and his
latest statement is quite contrary to his former
declarations. Here's his latest: "Yes, the
players are through with the presenfcowners of
the leagne clubs, and will have no further in
tercourse, with them. We have gone too far to
retreat now, so we will carry, or at least try to
carry, onr plans through. I thins we will suc

right on their bide, and sufficient Capital be

club owners will, of course, do all they-can to
break up our organization, but 1 do not think
they will succeed. Tbat story about trouble in
the Brotherhood is started by those people or
their friends for the sole purpose of making
trouble. At the next meeting the corporation
will elect -its President, and then the actual
work will be begun. The managers are solicit

Remarkable progress Is being made with the

A large number of bricklayers will start to

Saltwater is also assured. The contract calls
for completion by March 1, and then there will
be a grand opening, a prominent feature of
which will be the swimming contests.

by about 100 local sports, left the-city last even,

Boston, November L The Brotherhood
breeze is still whistling around in this vicinity,
Dut fresment Soden, of the Boston ciuo,
doesn't seem to be a bit scared. "I think it is a
big bluff," says Soden, "and I, for one. do not
believe the macy ridiculous.stories that have
been floating around the country." I have
looked upon the same stories as ridiculous, but
so much talk has beeu lndulgsd in,-that there
must be something in the wind. I have always
heeled for the Brotherhood and Johnnie "Ward,
for I know that the organization has done an
immense amount ofgood; but the Brotherhood
has been so successful' with the magnates in
securing certain concessions, that it
doesn't seem possible tbat they
(players) will go it alone without first consult
ing their employers. The League" pebole are
scared and they will grant anv reasonable con
cessions; u mey uo notrthen look out lor war,
for there are men in all the large cities who are
willing to put in their money and fight the
A carrel of money can be raised in this city,
but the parties are not going into a scheme of
this kind with their eyes shut, for without
eood grounds, and one close to the center of
the city.'like the present Boston "grounds, the
scheme wonld not prove the bonanza that some
people hope for. A site close to the New En
gland depot has been sized up, also one in South
Boston. If a man has a wife be would like to
dispose of, all he will have to do will be
to bring her to a ball game -close to the New
England depot, where the woman will soon get
loaded down with malaria. Why, it Is all made
land, and it is so close to the harbor that a man
couldn't enjoy a game before the latter part of
May. South Boston is also an undesirable spot,
and the people from the city never think of
going over there except on Sunday in the sum
mer time, when the breeze from off City Point
is greatly appreciated. Out toward the High
lands, where the present grounds are situated,
is about the only direction where a club can be
depended npon to pay well.
Boston has signed a new man in the person of
"Linkie" Lowe, late of the Milwaukee team.
Lowe hails from New Castle, Pa. Those who
have seen him speak of him as "a comer" and a
man of exemplary habits. It is said tbat
Johnston, Kadbourn, Daly and Madden are all
booked for slaughter. Johnston" is a ereat fav
orite here, but he has one fault he is fond of
a good time; besides, his batting and fielding
has been far below bis 'S3 record. I don't
think he will be released, but it 1? quite likely
tbat the Triumvirs will insist upon a reduction
of salary or a cast-iron contract The Trium
virs are rather weary ot Radbourn, and any
club tbat bids for him can probably secure bis
services so far as the Triumvirs are concerned.
But tosign 'Bad.! is--another tiling; he only
wants about $1,000. In 1887 he received SM.500,
which was the bigeest salary paid any League
player. Radbourn is a regular Yanderbilt
when approached on the salary question. How
inuniscuangeinine course ox a lew years i
In 1881 Radbourn joined the Providence team,
and was clad to get i900; and when he struck
for $1,500 the next season, he was accused of
having a tumor op bis brain. He was exam
ined by a physician and the verdict was, "Rad
bourn has a great head." Young Madden is
rather light timber, but decidedly the best
little man of his inches in the business. He is
a dandy little base runner, a clever pitcher,
and his batting record this season proves him
to be like Mr. Reilly doing quite well. Yes.
indeedly; "the kid" has a batting average of
.300. and beads ill the other twirlers in that re
spect A mistake will be made If young Daly
is let go. He joined the club dur
ing an exciting part of . the season
when the Bostons were fighting tooth and nail
with the New York team, and when he did go
in the box he was so nervous and anxious to
win that be didn't do himself justice. If be is
given a chance,, and strikes .his gait, he will
prove what he has always been, a winning
John Morrill will accompany Jim Hart's team
to California, and his long connection with the
Boston team will make him a taknlng card on
the coast where he is known only by reputation.
Broutbersand Bennett will' be "missed from
the team, and Hart should offer .special induce
ments to these men, for Californians are no
dummies f rom a baseballic standpoint They
would certainly like to see the champion batter
and best catcher in the business.

New Yobk, November 2. The Baseball

HE'S AFTERBIG GAME
Joe Eidge Wants to Tackle Cal
THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND $1,500.
Soma Interesting" Facts Abont Billy Hyer,
GOOD EACING AT MASHTILLE TRACK
Efforts to Prerent fob Playing; In the Armories
Joe Ridge, the featherweight pngilist of
Braddock, declares he is ready to fight Cal
McCarthy for the championship and $1,500
a side. Meyer's backers state their man is
ready to meet Carroll. Hon. "VV. L. Scott's
winnings with his 2-year-old runners were
above $100,000 for the season. There was
good racing at Nashville.
There is a probability of a battle between
Joe Bidge, of Braddock, and Cal Mc
Carthy, the champion featherweight, for
$1,500 a side. Bidge was in the city yes
terday afternoon looking for a friend to go
on at once and make the match. "What the
Intentions of the' Braddock pugilist are can
best be stated in his own words. Yesterday
afternoon he said to the writer:
"I have about six months' rest from pugilistic
encounters of any kind, and I was never in
better trim In my life. I have a desire to meet
McCarthy for the featherweight championship,
and some friends of mine are willing to put up
51,500 for me to fight him. I am willing to fight
McCarthy with bare knuckles, prize ring rules
CAL A GOOD MAS'.
"Of course I am aware that he is a gqod man
in his class, bnt I think I can hold my own
with him under prize ring rules. At any rate,
my backers and myself have talked the matter
over and we have come to the conclusion that I
have just mentioned. I wish to fight McCarthy
at 116 pounds."
Bidge could not see his friend, who is a well-
known sporting man, and he. Ridge, returned
home, intending to come back to the city on
A friend of McCarthy, residing in this city,
was told of Bidge's Intention, and he said:
"Well, Bidge or his backers need not go to
New York to make the match, because I will
put up money for McCarthy here. "Ridge is
probably a good man under prize ring rules,
and I know McCarthy is a
GAME AND CLEVEB
little fellow. The pair might make a good
contest at llSjounds each. However, I know
that McCarthy's backers are willing to match
him against anybody his weight."
Bidge appears to be very earnest in the mat
ter, and has remarkable confidence in his abil
ity to hold bis own against the champion. The
former relies very mucn on his wrestling pow
ers, and thinks that under prize ring rnies he
will have considerably the best of McCarthy as
far as wrestling is concerned. The matter
will be definitely settled in a few days. At
present the to-be or not-to-be of the encounter
depends on Ridge. At present he. refuses to
say where his backers want the fight to take
ABOUT BILLY MYER.
He Is Willing to Meet Jimmy Carroll for
Bloomington, III, November 2. Interest'
in the negotiations for a pugilistic meeting be
tween Billy Myer, the Illinois lightweight,
who made the game draw with Jack McAnliffe
at North Judson, Ind., and Jimmy Carroll, in
structor for tbe California Athletic Club, is
very keen and general in this part of the
country. Bloomington is just now the Mecca
to which journey the sporting men of Chicago
and St Louis, for here are the headquar
ters of Billy Myer, bis manager, Lee
Cheney, .while Alf Kennedy, his backer, comes
over from Btreator at least once a week.
Cheney has fitted up training rooms for'Myer
in tbe Opera House, and here be takes dally
exercise. There is considerable disgust felt and
expressed among the admlreraand patrons of
pugilism hereabouts regarding the evasive
tactics ot the California crowd who pretend
that they want to pack larrou against Myer.
They are constantly springing some new objec
tion or unreasonable demand to prolong negoti
atiohsor evade a result entirely. They want
Kennedy's $3,000 deposited in a lump in Ban
Francisco: they want the battle to take place
near that city, and. In short, want everything,
and no one would be surprised if Billy Jordon,
Carroll's backer.' demanded the money without
his man going into the ring.
The Myer people have all along been very
patient and courteous in the face of this tan
talizing and boyish jockeying on tbe part of
the San Francisco sports. Kennedy ana Myer
are willing to do. anything within the bounds
of reason to bring about a meeting, and already
have conceded points which, if they did not
have the uttermost confidence in their man's
ability to worst Carroll, would be imprudent.
Myers forfeit is on deposit In New York, and
lirAfmiarmnthads in such cases have bden
followed, and yefCarroll's backer stipulates
for more, and begs for points of advantage
and balks at everything. It Is plain that this
persistent evasion means a final "fluke."
Therefore last' night a close conference was
held in this city between Alf Kennedy, Myer's
backer, Lee Cheney, Myer's manager, and Billy
Myer himself. Dnrlne this conference a
printed slip cut from the Alta California was
shown to Myer. It was aresume of the nego
tiations, and stated that Carroll had denounced
Myer as "a coward and paper fighter, who
wonld crawl Into a rat hole rather than fight."
To give this bombast the air of authority, the
slip was pasted onanotehead bearing the seal
of the California Athletic Club, a"nd beneath
was written in Carroll's own handwriting:
"Compliments of James F. Carroll, Instructor
of California Athletic Club." Myer laughed,
and said he would discuss tbat point with Car
oil in a ring for money or fun at any time.

Hartford, Conn., November 2. The con
troversy between Governor Bulkleyand the
officers of the First regiment as to whether or
not polo shall be played tn the armory has come
to a head. Colonel Cone, of , the regiment, in
the early part of the week sent all the corre
spondence in tbe caso to the Adjutant General,
with a request for information. Tbe Adjutant.
General to-day returned it to Colonel Cone
-with tho information tbat tbe Commander-in-Chief
directs that the occupancy ot State
armories for drills or other military uses shall
conform to the decision of the Quartermaster
General orders on tbe subject to be pub
lished. This afternoon special orders were is
sued tbat wherever tbe Quartermaster Gen
eral shall approve or' disapprove any applica
tion tor the rental or use of armories lor
other than military purpose he shall at once
commnnicate the decision tn the officer in
charge of said armory, whose duty it shall be
to conform to the decision of the Quartermas
The English of these two communications is
that Governor Bulkley. as Commander-in-Chief
of the army,' has ordered Colonel Cone to
so arrange bis hours for drills that they shall
not interfere with thepoio playing of Governor
Bclkley's amusement company. Tbo officers
of tbe regiment held a protracted meeting last
night, and there was practical unanimity in
condemning the action taken by tho Governor.
Colonel Cone, in obedience to orders from bis
superior officers, will issue orders as directed.
The expectation is that the field and line of
ficers of the retriment will resign In a body, al
though no official announcement of such ac
tion has yet been made..
