ANOTHER CHANCE MADE
RAPIDLY NEARING THE END.
Tlie F.xcelsior Athlotio club hns
made another change in the exercise
under its auspic-s, hilled for April 0
and 10 at the Academy of Music List
February Mio club decided to take
charge of the fourth annual tourna
ment of the Amateur Atlantic Aso-
mtion of athletic. Entry blanks
were sent out to all the clubs of the
association, and the affair was exten
sively advertised throughout the Eis-
For some unknown reason tho ofli
;rs of tlie Excelsior club did not
seem to get lunch encouragement or
assistance from the board of managers
of the Atlantic association, who were
to receive half of the profits; and con
s quenlly the sentiment of the club's
members was that tlm association tour
nament would be a Rssto, so thev de
cided to drop the matter altogether
As was stated in this column a week
ago, tlm club intended to run a tourna
ment of its own on the dates advertised
for tho association events, and puts
forth ull its ende ivor to make it eclipse
all former tournaments.
ASSl'RED EVERY ENCOURAGEMENT.

Sucretary John Collins left tor Pliila-
leiunia last Wednesday to attend a
meeting of the board of managers of
the Atluntic association mid usk a re
lease from the contract made in Febru

up explanations were made by the
members of the board that threw a dif
ferent light on the sulij-'ct.
I he apparent non-interest on the
part of the managers turned out to bs
without foundation. Instead Cillini
ind MsXslly were assured and con
vinced that earnest 00 operation was
in progress for the success of tue ns?o-
Assurances wete given that several
first Class amateurs of the ilitrrent
clubs of the association ha l already
began training and would oe on hand

Why no answer came to Secretary
Collins from over a hundred entry
blanks forwarded to the various club,
iinl which aroused the idea that the
association tournament would be un
succmiful, resolves itslf satisfactorily
whot! the explanation is given that the
entries will not reach here until the
