EDWARD B. TALCOTT WILLING TO ITU
CHASE STOCK OF PRESENT HOLD
ERS OB TO ORGANIZE NEW CLUB.
With the return of A. <". Spalding to this city
to-morrow it is expected that the baseball situ
ation will become exciting again. Mr. Bpaldinf
has been at Aiken. S. C. since the recent meet
ing of the National Baseball League in this city,
and his friends say that he is returning, much
refreshed, to hi Ing. the baseball controversy to
an immediate ipsue. On bis way South Mr
Spaldinc met Kdward B. Talcott, the retired
Wail Street broker, who once controlled the
New-York club. Messrs. Bpalding and Talcott
have always been friends, and 41 can be said that
Mi. Talcntt stands ready to purchase back the
controlling Interest in the club which he sold to
Freedman in IBBS.
Tims,- in ■ position to know say thai Mr. Tal
c>tt is ready to <i<> even more than this, for Mr.
Taloott eras one "f the most enthusiastic base
ball ■'■■rank ■ n in this district. He is a
rirm believer In the plan engineered by Mr.
Isyifllnt i" clarify the baseball atmosphere, and
it is reported that In <as.' h<^ cannot obtain a
mntrollinK Interest In the present New-York
dub hr- la prepared to organise another < lub
whk'h %vi!l be run in opposition ta th<* pres
ent or^anizHti'in. The question of suitable
grounds \\;!1 not, it Is said, prove to be a stum
bling block. It la believed that, no matter what
assfK-iatiun the present Brooklyn, Chicago, Pitts
burg and Philadelphia clubs may belong to
in th>- next semawn, the aasociatten will • l * i
known as | and that each team will
have a strong complement of players.
Tht- appei er waa received yesterday
by Chartea H. Bbbets, president <>f the Brooklyn
J?as<;>al! Club:
Alken. 8. <".. lan. : 1902.
Mcsstb. Droyfus?. Soiien. Keach, Knowles, EbbetS,
Brush, it.ii : and Rol lnon.
Gentlemen: As I am temporarily joined by ih>-
Supreme Court of New-York from acting as preoi
dent .if the National League. l<> which office I was
unanimously elected December 14, 1501, and In ac
cordance with the court's orders, ii is impo<sil>!e
for me to communicate officially with the J'nts
burg. Boston l'hiladelphla, New-York. Brooklyn,
Cincinnati. Chicago and St. Louis clubs, member*
of the National League, but I know of nothing that
will prevent my carrying on ' personal correspond
ence with you gentlemen a« Individuals, and it will
be mv aim to make the meaning of this letter. so
plain" that no one will feel the necessity «>! em
ploying an attorney to Interpret it.
Since leaving New-York on the 22d ult. l met in
Washington D. C. Edward B. Talcott; formerly
managing director of th. New-York club whom I
urged, for the good of the game In New-York City
and elsewhere, to again become interested In the
*rort in that city, and if the stockholders of the
NVw-York club are disposed .to Bell their hoi. lings
nt a reasonable price. I think he and his friends
mißht be Induced to Join In uplifting our national
game. While I count myself as one of his friends.
yet under no circumstances will I directly or in
directly make any financial Investment in tlie New-
York or any other 'hall club: but the opportunity
la offered for the stockholder* of the New-York
cluh to negotiate the Bale of their holdings to Ed
ward B. Talcott, should they deem it for their
Interests to do so. •
While In Washington I had several long confer
ences with N. E. Young, and without coing into
detail 1 can state that Mr. Young and myself un
derstand th» situation and each other pretty well.
After talking with Mr. Young and listening to
pome of the official and personal troubles with
which he has contended during the last few years,
and also the personal insults to which he has been
subjected in™ certain quarters, together .with In
formation relative to unpaid obligations due the
league. i can now understand the tt-rmendous ef
forts that were recenly made in Mew-York to get
the official records of the National League out at
my hands. . i ■ <> „■ <• •
Since leaving Washington on the evening of tlie
2fth ult. 1 have hail no baseball conferences, and
aside from a iittle desultory correspondence of a
general 'ip*i?eball character. I have little to add to
the records of th!- baseball campaign, with which
you are already familiar.
During my two weeks' absence all hands have
bad an opportunity to think matters over In their
various bearings, and it would seem that sufficient
time has been given everybody to have reached a
conclusion and derision as to their future course
relative to this baseball situation. In order that I
may better understand tbe present consensus of
opinion I am writing this circular letter to the
gentlemen named above, with a request that 1 be
favored with a reply that should reach me not
later that. Monday morning January 6. 1902. when
I will arrive at the Albemarle Hotel. New-York
City, giving the Individual impressions and views
on the present situation, with such information and
suggestions as may have a bearing on the future
conduct of this baseball campaign, which has been
waged for the sole purpose of ridding professional
baseball of its ohirrtlon.ihie features.
T trust everybody will (eel at -liberty to express
tneir views fully, for upon these various expressions
to a certain extern will depend my actions in the
future.
Not hearing from any of the gentlemen above
named by January <i, i will construe their silence
to mean an Indorsement of the actions I have so
far taken, and will treat the first chapter In this
baseball controvert as closed, and proceed to open
up the second nne.
Awaiting your r ;.|\ which please understand
must be in your individual capacity and addressed
to me as an Individual, for reasons as stated above,
I am. yours very truly. A. '■ iPAKDING
COLLEGE HOCKEY.
THE ADMISSION OP HARVARD TO THE
LEAGUE WILL ENLIVEN THIS
. ' LIN?: OF SPORT.
Hockey promises to lie tho chief of collo^r- winter
fporis In this city this poasnn. The approach ''
the opening of the championship series of games
has caused conslderal speculation among the fol
lowers of college athletics as to what teams ap
parently have the bert chance for honors. It Is
not to hp doubt) that t}'e admission of Harvard
to the league, after several years' effort, has been
one of the <-lii.-f factors In the increase of popular
Interest -in the panne, and Harvard. Indeed, -• ems
likely to make good its claim for consideration by
winning the first place from rale, the champion of
the last three year?.
Vale's team has four of last year's men a? the
nucleus on which to build a new team Yale will
have to show considerable improvement over last
reason's form if she expects to do better against
Harvard than last year, when the wearers of the
blue were defeated hv a s. are of 1 to 0. Talntof
at goal <_'oxe at cover point and Bronson at for
ward are the men absent from last year's t am.
Potter has taken the plate of Bronson, K. Ward
that of Taintor. and Hitchcock that of Cose The
other player*. Captain Btoddard. Inman and B »•
as forwards and C, Ward .it point are the remain-
Ing members of the team which played last year.
While Harvard has lost three men. her team is
said to be oven stronger this year than last. Win-
Fton, Laveraeh and Hardy are the three who have
been graduated, but their places will be easily
filled from among Wait, Poster. Hosdick. Noyes,
Kendall. Litchfleld. Oarr. Pruin. kfetcalf, Burgess.
Loverlr.g. Souther and Ward. Four of the fastest
and most HK(rre.««ive of last season's players— Rum-
BBjr, Goodrich. Penhallow and Manning— are still la
college, and from present prospects the team ex.
pects to do even better against Yale this year than
last.
Colurrfbla seems to be weaker in hockey this
season tV.an ever before, for the men are inex
perienced even in the rudiments of the gam; 1 , and
show a lack of '.i.tllty to shoot straight and pass
the puck accurately. Captain Wolff, on the for
war(* line. 1» really the only man of ability, so
that it may easily be seen how difficult a task
Columbia faces in attempting to cope with either
Harvard or Yale. For Columbia at present Bates
is playing goal keeper. Benedict point, W. Duden
cover point, and Holmes, Akin. Wolff. Coggeshall
and McKee the forwards.
Princeton's team has shown up rather well this
-year, having played a tie game with the St. Nicho
las Skating Club. The Tigers have most of la Ft
year's team back in college, including King at goal.
Sheffield at point. McClave. the football player, at
. oi'«-r point, and McAlpin. Oj;deii and Purnell at
forward. Wiley, i.i-ak<- and Lloyd are the candi
.-.tee for the vacancy at forward.
Brown Is said to have about the >.Hm«- team as
li.n n-afoii. and. an usual, though unskilled, may
be relied on to piay a rough game that will no
doubt work havoc with form of the stronger and
cleverer >■> yens.
.While Cornell and Pennsylvania are both anxious
to get into the league, It may he stated authorita
tively that the membership of the association will
not ha increased this season.
GOLF.
GLENTIEW STILL PRESSING ITS CLAIMS
FOR -AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP.
Although nothing official has developed regarding
the plan of the Chicago golf clubs to secure the
amateur championship for Glenview, several mem
bers of lhe executive committee of the United
States Golf Association have already received in
timation that the scheme will be sprung at the
annual meeting here next month. Phelps B. Hoyt,
the Western amateur champion, is said to be look
ing after Glenview's interests, and some corre
spondence has already passed between him and the
leading Western golfers in furtherance of the plan.
It is expected that, with the improvements made
recently in the Glenview links, he will I"- able to
present a strong argument to the delegates at the
annual meeting " While the scheme is regarded
With little favor by Travis, Douglas and other in
fluential Eastern players, the objection Is based
more on the fact that Glenview is a day's journey
from the great golf centre of the country than
upon any lack of merit in the Glen view links. As
a matter of fact, little is known about the course
there, except that it is near Chicago and la well
thought of by players In that section.
According to a well known Morris County player
Who his Just returned from there, however, it is
one of the most delightful courses in the country.
It is hald on beautiful, rolling ground, where a
combination has been made between wood, Held
■nd water. The coins.- was originally a nine hole
one. but in ISK it was extended to eighteen. A fair
Idea of Its merit may be had from the following
Summary of holes and distances:

The chief h-.zn'rds are a brook to be crossed on
the second short of the third hole; an .immens-?
sand trap thirty yards broad on the carry to the
fifth hole, and a pond on the carry to the ninth.
The Chicago River Is also used as a hazard on the
tenth, eleventh, seventeenth and eighteenth holes,
Altogether it is an exceedingly varied and inttrest
ing circuit, but while sporty it is amply rewarding
to the player who "bides his 'cc a' the ba." Com
pared with the links at Atlantic City, where the
national championship took place last September,
it Is almost two hundred yards longer, and consid
erably better greened. Should the award be made
in its favor the Eastern players will probably have
the satisfaction of knv-vins that so far as the
championship is concerned the test will be a thor
oughly fair and adequate one.

CHESS MATCH.
The second annual chess match between ;"l:m
nia and Cornell, which was begun on Friday at thi
rooms of the Manhattan Chess Club, In this < -i I> .
resulted In a substantial rtctory for the New-
Forkera by the score of s points to 4 )• or once
the unexpected did not happen Cornell waa no (
equal to the gigantic task of winning >!\ games
straight, which would have be< n hei only means to
clinch the match.
Columbia reached her goal in the morning ses
sion by virtue of Yon Bholly*a clever play against
Rand, who was defeated after fifteen moves. Th<
score then stood *>'- to ' 2 In favor of Columbia,
with live games still unfinished. In the afternoon
sitting Bewail widened the gap by administering a
beating to Riedel after thirty-three moves Bewail
'..■■; previously won two minor pieces for a rook,
and eventually won the queen of his adversary,
whereupon the latter gave up the light. As Kei lei
and Heuser drew their game soon afterward, a
game which was finely contested throughout, the
Bcora was 7 to 1 In favor of the home team Later
on in the afternoon, however, the Cornell men be
gan i" play much stronger. To begin with, Kid.i. 1
had to resign to Wood after forty-seven moves.
Storey game was adjudicated a draw by the ref
eree and Scripture beat Schroeder, who had lost
the pawn which he. had previously gained. Colum
bia thus won the match, as indicated above, while
last year they were beaten t>y 7 to 5 points in favor
of Cornell.
