THE BASEBALL FIGHT.
fcfan and Vie::* on Current Topics,
Amateur and Professional.
Now that the flr?t clash between the Eastern
and Western loams in th«> two major leagues
has romo. the follow ers of the Giant? and the
Tankr^s hay» pvrrv cause to feel satisfied with
the outlook for at leapt one If not two cham
pionship pennants this year. Of course, the
time for raisins: the flaes has not come, and the
teams in both leagues are too -well matched.
Judging from cames played, to arouse any feel
ing stronger than hope, but there ip pood rea
son for feelinp jubilant with both teams fißht
%nfc in the van and with bright prospects of
Fta>-inje there. That the Eastern- clubs in the
National Lea cue are much stronger this year
than they have been for some time is now
something: mor-.* than a boast, and this means
much, as last season the Giants had to do prac
tically all the fichtini; themselves, srettinj? little
or no heap from th»» other teams in the Ea=t
•when opposed So their Western rivals. The
first test of Ftr--ntrTh last week indicated this,
and while the Chicaco Cubs and the Plttsburs
Pirates ill be a constant menace they wiU
not be feared to the same extent as a year ne>.
and that in itself counts for something. ' Judg
ing from the early jrames. the Western teams
in the American T^aini* appear collectively
stronger than those in the East, but New Turk
and Philadelphia can be counted on to hold
their end up even if Boston and Washington can
lend little or no help.
The Giants lost two nut of threp games to
Pittsburg and broke ever* in two games with
Cincinnati last week. This was not much to
boast at, but they held their own in the league
race, thanks to some help from Philadelphia
and Brooklyn, each at which took a game from
the Chicago Cubs. On Friday the East made a
clean sweep against their "Western foes, Phila
delphia fairly burying Ptttrtnirc while Brook
lyn furnish^ii something of a surprise by de
feating Chicago, the world's champions. The
GianT? did not suffer in comparison with the
Pirates in the series -at Pittsburg. in spite of
the fact that they lost two of the three cairi^s
played. Judging from reports, the team might
have won th*» first game if the men had been
wider awake to opportunities. In the third
frame Mathewson* was not himself and lost his
■rat game of the season, after winning seven
straight. Be lost another to Cincinnati, but can
be depended or, to keep his end up Throughout
the season, barring accidents. The Giants must
play one morf game with Cincinnati to-day, and
then go on to St. Louis for four games. Th™
first clash with the world's champions will com-i
on Sunday, and when that important series is
ever the fans wil! be able to Judge even better
than at present us to what the chances are for
the pennant ba fly over the Polo Grounds next
fall. The Sup^rbas did not fare particularly
well at St. Louis, but That victory over Chicago
helped to .beer their followers up." Philadelphia
is climbing fast, and may have something to say
about where the pennant belongs. The team
won the three games played last week, beating
Chicago once and fairly humbling the Pirates
by shutting them out twice. McQuillen. an old
Jersey City pitcher, won two of the three games
and is likely to develop into one of the stars of
Th*> Tank's are still leading the American
Ixsajrue pennant race and should continue to
hold the place, for the time being, at least.
They won two out of three games from Cleve
land and all from Detroit last week, which was
more than satisfying. They lost the first game
to Cleveland after a hard fight, finding Joss a
veritable Chinese puzzle, hut there was some
excuse for this, as Jobs was pitching in rare
form and has now won seven straight games.
On Saturday the Yankees found The American
League champions stronger than their standing
in the race ■■■M indicate, but the fame was
marred by so much petty wrangling that it was
not possible to judjr«» of the relative merits of
the team. Elb^rfeld is not so sadly missed at
shortstop, as Ball la filling his shoes In the most
approved style and playing such a steady and
at times brilliant game that he ip fast becom
ing a favorite. Detroit will be at American
League Park for three days this week, and
Chicago for three, and the fans are counting
on New York wir.ning four of the six games,
which does not appear to be unreasonable. The
Yankees are playing winning ball, showing
strength both in the flold and at the bat.
It i.= hard to understand why the sport lov
ing Americas public is not doing more to lend
its aid. by subscriptions, 10 the American
Olympic committee, which is working hard to
raise enough money to send a representative
team to the Olympic games in England next
month. The • taJ Bam ten days ago was only
$11,000. whereas It has been estimated that
550.000 will be Deeded if this country is to be
properly represented in the various branches of
sport. Since then word has come from Boston
that the Boston Athletic Association •will con
tribute at loast $3,000. v. hi!, a number of other
sources from which money is sure to come have
Mi yet been heard from, but the total is dis
appointing, and those who have not already
tubscribed should act quickly, as the time is
short and pr ■;•• plans cannot be made if funds
are not available. Subscription.* may be sent
to Julian \Y. Curtis, No. 126 Nassau street. New
York, and those who are interested in the suc
cess of the American team should subscribe
510 or even 55 to help the cause along, if they
cannot afford a larger amount. The chances
are remarkably bright for the American track
arid field team to duplicate its victory at Athens
two years ago. and it would be a pity if lack
of funds stood in th* way of sending the
strong " and most representative team.
By defeating Harvard and Princeton last week
Amherst earned a forward place in the fight for
the &&-called college i 1 hall championship —
which, by the way, appears to be in a more
muddied condition than usual. In spite of the
defeat by Amherst, however, the Princeton
Tirers have a clear lead for the title, as they de
feated both Cornell and Harvard last week and
have lost only on*- game in the last thirteen
played, a record they may well be proud of.
Following Princeton, the ranking should be, as
judged from comparative scores: Yale, Penn
sylvania, Amherst. Williams, Cornell, Holy
Cross, Brown. Anna polls. West Point. Columbia,
Harvard and Dartmouth. Princeton, with
H^yniger in the box. is wellnfgh invincible, and
If the, big pitcher holds his form to the end of
the season the claim of the Tigers to the cham
pionship will not be questioned. The other
players on the team are giving him excellent
support in the field and batting in a timely way.
The Tigers have won fourteen game* and lost
four, on«» of the defeats being at the hands of
the Jersey City Eastern LBaBW team. Amherst
has «on nine garner and losl five. Of these the
team beat Harvard and Princeton, but lost to
Pennsylvania and Williams. JJcClure ; and
Brisk are both pitching good ball. Yale met an
unexpected defeat on Thursday, when Dart
mouth, which has a poor record, won by a «core
of 8 to 2. The Blue beat Pennsylvania on
Saturday, however, thus squaring accounts with
the Quakers for the defeat earlier in the season.
Yale's chief fault is weakness at the bat. Yale
has won ten games and lost four, one of the de
feat* being by the Giants. Pennsylvania has
won thirteen and lost seven Cornell's defeat by
Princeton, although by a narrow margin, will
count against the Ithaca rig, who have been un

able to play on three successive Saturdays on
account of rain. Cornell has won six games and
lest seven Harvard, with almost the same nine
as a year ago. seems unable to check a bad
losing Ftreak. In spite of much ragged fielding
and a lack of team work the Crimson might
have won several games if the men had shown
any ability to bat. Two hits in two games, one
off Brisk, of AmherPt. and one of Heyniger, of
Princeton, tells the story. Harvard has won
five games, lost seven and tied one. The team
has been ben ten in quick succession by Holy
rrns* Williams. Maine. Amherst and Princeton.
Columbia lost a close game to Pennsylvania and
another to Lafayette last week, and is out of
Ta lP rorneli and Pennsylvania will fight it
out for the intercollegiate track and field ath
letic championship if performances to date count
for anything. Yale appears to have a strong
and well balanced team.
R^ rfnr the rniverslty of Virginia sprinter, is
a flyer Tf his world 1 ? record for onP' hundred
yards is not accepted it seems only a qoestfon of
time for him to earn the honor.
James F. Balltvaa, president of the Amateur
Athleti- Union and secretary of the American
Olympic committee, is confident that this coun
try «aj be represented at the games in England
br an even stronger team than the one which
w^nt to Athens two years ago. if the necessary
funds are available. Tn lOOfi the gsmes were
held in April, and consequently the best college
athletes could not get away. This year, how
ever with the games in July, the committee
will be able to mak« full use of those college
men who have shown themselves suitable for
places on the team. Walter Dray, the Tale
captain, who ma.de a world's record in the pole
vault of 12 feet fi^ inches at the Pennsylvania
relay carnival, is almost a sure point winner
for America, while Rector, the University of
Virginias sprinter, who ran 1<">O yards in the
world's record time of 9 2-5 seconds a few days
ago. is f-ure to be a tower of strength to the
team if he goes. With Dan Kelley to help him
out in the sprints and to take care of the
broad jump, and such other good men as Porter
in the high jump. Shepherd and Taylor in the
middle distance events. Ray C. Ewry in the
standing broad jump. Martin Rheridan, Ralph
Rose and Flanagan in the weights. Tad White
in the mile. Forest Smithson. who qualified in
the Pacific tryouts. in the hurdles, to say noth
ing of Hubbard, the Amherst star, followers of
the sport In this country can prepare to cheer.
These men have not been definitely chosen as
yet, but it looks as if all would get the call.
"Racing Maxims and Methods of Pittsburg
Phil" as told by Ed. Cole, who was among the
few men who had the full confidences of the
late George E. Smith, makes entertaining and
Instructive reading for those Interested in rac
ing. The time and weight percentage table is
worth studying and the. maxims worth com
mitting to memory-
It appears to be definitely settled that this
country will not be represented in the Olympic
regatta in England. Lack of funds and diffi
culty in selecting the men for a crew are rea
sons that might have been overcome if Ameri
can oarsmen had shown a little more interest
in the sport.
With thirty thousand persons at Belmont
Park on Metropolitan Handicap day and some
thirty-five thmisaand on Saturday, no question
can be raised as to the popularity of racing.
FAST PLAY AT DOUBLES.
Rain Stops Mateh — Teams for Spe
cial Round Robin Scries.
Theodore Roosevelt Pell and Irving C. "Wi ight had
set fi fast pace on one side of the lawn tennis net
for Wylie C. Grant and Richard H. Palmer yester
day in the doubles on the courts of the Bedford
Park (Huh when a vagrant shower flooded the play
ing surface and the match had to be stopped. Pell
and Wright won the first set by a score of 6—3.
The second set was well advanced, with Grant and
Palmer leading at 4—3, when the rain forced the
teams to quit.
The make-up of the four teams that will engage
in the special round robin doubles on the turf
courts of the Oakland .Golf (.Tub, at Bay Side, Long
Island, was announced yesterday. The list is head
ed by Frederick R Alexander and Harold H.
Hackctt. national champions; William A. Lamed
and C. Frederick Watson, Jr.. Theodore Roosevelt
Pell and Robert Le Roy, and Richard H. Palmer
and Gustave F. Touchard. The opening competi
tions will be decided June 6.
Women and men experts with the racket will
begin the annual championships of the West Side
Lawn Tennis Club to-day.
OARSMEX OUT IX FORCE.
Race for High School Boys Promises
To Be Interesting.
That the Memorial Day regatta is near at hand
was plainly evident by the host of craft yesterday
on the Harlem River The warm weather was
ideal for rowing, and many of the oarsmen had
time trials. Singles, doubles, fours and eights
and every other known form of shell might have
b»en seen on the river during the day.
The race among the schoolboys should furnish
one of the most interesting contests of the day, if
the opinion of the coaches of these crews counts
for anything Alderman Jack Mulcahy, who is
preparing the Stuyvesant High School crew, when
seen yesterday was boiling over with praise, "My
youngsters worked like troopers last week,"' he
*a:<i. "and what Is more gratifying is that they
keep on improving all the time. They are quick
at learning, and their deep interest in the work
makes practice a delight to them. I believe that
they would be satisfied to row to Coney Island if
that were possible, for when I tell them that they
have had enough practice for on' day th^y seem,
to find leaving the water the hardest Job of all.
They are pulling a (strong stroke, and If they are
beaten I shall be much disappointed."
Those who have seen the De Witt Clinton crew
work, under the direction of Clarence Mase, as
sisted by Jack Doyle, voice the opinion that it will
take a mighty strong crew to beat it. The boy*
forming the crew have been steadily Improving,
and have already reached that stage of perfection
that they would be reidy to race to-morrow.
The, boys of the High School of Commerce crew,
which won the race last year, are determined to
win the honor again this year, and to this end
are working faithfully. The crew put in some long
and li*aa practice on the river last week.
NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. MONDAY, MAY 18. 1908.
COLIN IN THE WITHERS
Mr. Keene's Unbeaten Colt May
Start in Belmont Park Classic.
THe outlook is bright for much high Hass racing
at Belmont Park this week, with the Juvenile
Stakes, the first rich fixture of the season for two
year-olds, and the historic Withers as the par
ticular features of Saturday's programme. The
Juvenile Stakes, which has an added money value
of $n,OOO, is at five furlongs, and it is m«»re than
lively that some youngsters may go to the post
which later will he ranked with the best in train-
Ing. It will be the thirty-fourth running of the
fixture. Most of the big staWes should be repre
sented, as nominations were made by Augr ist Bel
mont, H. B. Puryea. Jamep R. Keene, John EL
Madden. Harry Payne Whitney and R. T. Wilson,
jr., among others.
The Withers Stakes, with an added money value
of Slft.OOO. may be the occasion for the three-year
old debut of James R. Keene's unbeaten Colin,
which won twelve r;ices and J1.>0.357 last year. B«
has bfen going along well In his work, and the
race Is quite rich enough, besides being a particu
larly coveted fixture, to tempt Mr. Keen* and
Jimmy Rowe if last year's champion is up to a
race. Among the other good horses eligible are
Uncle, winner of the Triumph Stakes at Brighton
Beach last season; Meelick. the three times Derby
winner this year; Chapulteper, Fair Tlay, Jim
Gaffney. Dorante. King James. Cohort. Stamina,
which was ranked as the best two-year-old filly
last year; Bar Nose and Falcada.
Jack Atkins sterling performance in winning the
Metropolitan Handicap on Wednesday places him
in th" front rank with the hest thoroughbreds In
training, a position with which hr- was not gener
ally credited up to that time, in spite of his many
brilliant races. There is still a question in the
minds of many good Judges about his ability to
racr> with distinction at any distance over one mile
with the best horses, but up to that distance he has
few if any equals, unless it may be Colin, Celt or
Uncle. W. S. Vosburgh, the official handicapper of
the Jockey Club, is rarely at fault in his classifica
tion, and the high esteem in which he holds Jack
Atkin was indicated by giving him top weight in
the Toboggan Handicap with 137 pounds, seven
mor<% than the once mighty Roseben. The latter
has not been himself this year and may never
come back to his true form, in which case Jack
Atktn will probably continue to hold, the post of
honor in handicaps over sprinting distances. So
far as conformation end breeding are concerned,
there is no reason why Jack Atkin should not be
quite as good over a distance of ground. The Im
pression that he was only a sprinter was gained
last year when he was suffering more or less from
an incipient ringbone, which was excuse enough
for his stoppage. Now that the ringbone is cured
it is quite possible that he wil! show to good ad
vantage ov«-r a mile ano a quarter, and earn even
greater turf fame by winning at cup distances.
Racegoers are looking forward to a feast on
Memorial Day, as the United Hunts Racing Asso
ciation will hold a morning meeting on its new
course, opposite Belmont Park, preliminary to the
regular sport in thp afternoon. The arrangement
is such that the racing at one track not only does
not interfere with that at the other, but there will
be ample time between for luncheon. The United
Hunts meeting will begin at 11 o'clock, and the
card of five races will have been run off by 1
o'clock, leaving one hour and a half before the
calling of the first race at the big courpe across
the road. The card consists of three steeplechases,
one hurdle race and one flat race.
The new course, which was opened last fall, is
not fajuiliar to the majority of New York race
goers, as the meeting then was opposed by racing
at Jamaica, b.ut under the arrangements for Memo
rial Day the rank and file may see the course with
out sacrificing their devotion to the sport at the
principal tracks. That they will be most agree
ably surprised is assured, for it is one of the
prettiest in the country. It is a regulation steeple
chase course, over natural country, and the racing
may be seen perfectly from the stand or lawn.
Aside from the novelty of being able to see rac
ing both morning and afternoon, there is another
feature which will offer a Btrongr appeal to many.
That Is their ability to avoid the crush incident to
transportation on big holidays. Arrangements will
be made to run trains both from the Long Island
City and Flatbush avenue stations at an early hour,
thus affording the opportunity for thousands to
escape the crowds of the regular racetrack trains.
The admission will be $2 for the grandstand, $o for
the c!ub stand and 60 cents for the field. The
space originally intended for the use of automo
biles and carriages will be set apart exclusively
for the fielders.
The officials for the meeting are: Stewards, E.
C. La Montagne and F. K. Sturgls; judge, Alger
non Daingerfield ; handicapper, F. J. Bryan; starter,
J. H. Bradford, Jr.; paddock judge. W. F. Pres
grave; patrol judges, Beverly W. Robinson and R.

Kramer Beaten in Tzco Contests, but
Makes Fast Time Trial
Seven thousand spectators turned «out for the
races yesterday at the Vailsburg bicycle track at
Newark, even if it did look like rain in the morn
ing. Kramer's star waa somewhat eclipsed, as
the national professional champion failed to score
in tbe handicap contest and a punctured tire put
him out of the ten-mile open. He had one victory
to his^redit, however, for he made the most suc
cessful onslaught on Old Father Time in the one

both of the professional contests. John Bedell

FAST SPEEDWAY TROTS
Policeman Stops Two Runaways-
Many Stars in Brushes.
Those who journeyed to Speedway Park yesterday
paw a programme of sport that was high class
from start to finish and brought together such stars
as Andrew Crawford's Invader, T. B. Leahy's Who
Knows. John Cornish's Tempus Fugit. Benjamin
Cohen's Red Bird. James J. Murphy's Don Derby.
William Scott's Kitty Wtlkes and Charles \\>iland's
Dr. Chase Is !n better form than ever before, and
when Mr. Wetland challenged Andrew Crawford
,and his champion Invader to a trial of speed It
was considered a well matched brush. Although
Dr. Chase, had to be content with second position,
he. proved a worthy competitor.
Mr. Murphy appeared on the drive behind Don
Derby, but could find no owner brave enough to
tackle his whirlwind, as Don Derby has long re
mained practically invincible amona; the fidewheel
contingent. After sending Don Derby to the stable
Mr. Murphy got up behind Fandango. The little
gelding has considerable speed, but it proved not
sufficient to take the measure of Benjamin Cohen's
Red Bird. After twice lowering the colors of
Fandango, Red Bird faced T. B. Leahy's Who
Knows, and after winning the first heat he lost
his stride in the second. Getting th« bit between
his teeth he got beyond control, and was making
things lively for other drivers en the upper stretch
when Officer Murphy, who had ridden alongside
the unruly steed, was able to grasp his bridle and
soon had him reduced to order. Another runaway
that threatened disastrous results took place a
little later, almost at the same place, anil gave
Officer Murphy another chance to display his skill
and horsemanship. Clans Bohling was driving A.
J. D. and Ktngmond an exhibition mile when the
pair became frightened and started to run away,
and only for the timely interference of Murphy
both horses and driver would probably have been
dashed against the stone foundation of High
Dr. Joseph Pcnvn's Virginia* Belle figured con
spicuously among the winners. She won the de
cisive h»^at !n a neries of brushes with Dr. Gill's
Flr=t Demand, and then was sent to tackle George
Huber's Frankie Pandit. This also proved a win
for the Semon mare. William Scott's Kitty Wilkes
three times lowered the colors of P. Kennedy's
LoTd Bromley, and in turn was defeated by Hugh
Riley's bay mare lAtcy. Joseph Gibbon's Cloro and
William Clark's Ready Boy were well up on the
winning list. Cloro defeated Sheldon's Lady and
Sally A., and Ready Boy had no difficulty in tak
ing the measure of Sally A. and Phyllora.

Metropolitan Championship This
Week's Attraction — Other Xetcs.
Among the golfors all eyes will turn toward the
Baltusrol links this week, where the tenth annual
championship tournament of the Metropolitan Golf
Association will begin on Wednesday and finish on
Saturday. Oddly enough, this will be the first
time in the history of the organization that the
Metropolitan Golf Association has seen fit to select
Bakusrol for its championship, although practical
ly all the other important attractions, such as the
national amateur, open and women's and women's
metropolitan, to say nothing of the New Jersey
tournament, have been decided there at different
The entry list, which has closed with the secre
tary. I,elghton Calkins, shows that the field will
bo of its usual high class, and among those who
will be watched closely are Jerome l>. Tnivers, of
Montclalr, the title holder; Walter J. Travis, of
Garden City; Findlay 8. Douglas, Nassau; George
T. Brokaw, Deal; Fred Herreshoff, Garden City;
Gilman P. Tiffany, Powelton; Max Behr. Morris
County; Archie Graham, North Jersey, and Charley
Seely, Wee Burn.
Travers started the season inauspiciously by be
ing defeated in tournaments at Atlantic City and >
Garden City, but the way he went through his
field at Huntingdon Valley last week will serve to 1
giYO his friends renewed confidence. An indifferent '
long game haa handicapped him not a little thus j
far. The Mvntclair crack won two tournaments at ■
Baltusrol last year and plays the courst- well.
Travis, on the other hand, has never distin
guished himself there, and incidentally the veteran
has not hesitated to criticise the Short Hills \
course, but since he lost there in the. national
championship in 1904 many Improvements have been
added, until now Baltusrol is recognized us being I
one of the best trapped eighteen hole circuits in
Douglas, Graham. Herreshoff, Behr and Tiffany
will also be worth watching. The latter has not
been playing in tournaments for nearly a year,
but report has it that his game Is as good aa ever.
Herrcahoff always liked Baltusrol, and to d«es
Behr, who plays It in low figures.
The Onondaga Golf Club, of Syracuse, has shown
commendable enthusiasm In arranging a season's
schedule. Beginning with the- ball sweepstakes c^!i
Saturday, the list calls for something in a compet
itive way every week until well into October. The
club championship will not begin until September

H. H. Wilder, of Harvard, regarded as about
the best of the amateurs in Massachusetts, grati
fied his admirers on Saturday by winning the chief
cup in the final round of the open tournament at

"An h." answered the. American.
"Oh, never mind." retorted the guard. "I'll pick it
up at Hlslington."— Travel Maiazln*. ,
