Jay Gould Defeats George F.
Covey in Court Tennis by
Special to The Telegraph
Philadelphia, March 19. —Jay Gould
is court tennis champion of the world.
He defeated George F. Covey three
sets to one at the Racquet Club, yes
terday, thus bringing tho match to a
close in two days' play.
The American champion won four
straight sets on Monday and his three
sets yesterday gives him the victory
by the very one-sided score of seven
Bets to one.
Gould scored 247 points against 170
for Covey, and he won 47 games to 19
for his opponent. It was a most
overwhelming defeat for the British
professional champion, who at the end
readily admitted that lie had been
beaten by a better man, id by an
amateur at that.
The experts who witnessed the play
declare that Gould proved himself to
be the greatest exponent of court ten
nis that ever lived. Covey seemed to
be below his usual form, but that was
probably because of the wonderful
■work of his opponent, who held the
whip hand in every set except one, the
third yesterday, when • the British
champion scored the single victory that
Baved him from a "whitewash" defeat.
The scores yesterday were 6-2, 6-3,

By Associate J Press
Macon, Ga., March 19. George
Stallings, manager of the Boston Na
tional League baseball club, last night
announced that h % had obtained an
injunction to prevent agents of the
Federal League from having commun
ication with any member of the Bos
The Injunction was obtained from
Judge Mathews, of the Superior Court
hero, under provisions of the Georgia,
contract labor law. "If any Federal
League representative comes to Macon
or any point in the State of Georgia
and attempts to get my players away
from me, I'll put him in Jail aa sure
as he gets oft a train," said Stallings.
"The Georgia labor contract law is
explicit on that point. When an em
ployer has signed an employe to a
contract calling for his services for a
stated time, any other employer is
violating the law when he attempts to
get the employe under contract to vio
late that contract with a view to tak
ing employment with another party."
