There have been three matches In tho

The amateur pool tournament at Poyle'a
Is In full swing. Thp schedule was Inter
rupted for a time while .1. 11. Shoemaker,
one of the stius of the tourney, waa ad
justing his amateur stitus. The tourney
Is under Hip sanction of the N. A. A, B.
P. Shoemaker was one nf four pntrles
who automatically suspended themaelvcn
last winter by playing In unsanctioned
tourtiPs. All have been lelnstMted, but
before Shoemaker nus irstored to the
good g.aees nf the N. A. A. H. P. be
had to disprove charges of professional
ism. II seems that he wns charged with
having conducted a billiard room, but It
turned out to be a case of mistaken
Identity, Shoemaker going befoie u notary
and swearing to the Inaccuracy of the
eharces. He bus rcsutwd his games In
three cushion handicap tournament
will begin to-morrow evening In Maurice
Daly's room, for w hich the following ama
teurs are entered : Isaac Mamies, John
Cope, Albert Colin, Ike l'eler, ilobert '
HeiiBton. Arthur Kttllnger, Louis Thomaa
and Lewis oblott. All play forty point
except I'clser, who plays fifty.
Next week lit Doyle's
games In the Intel city

Muoro. or Johr. Danlielmnn.
Slosson and Yamadu will take part In
an exhibition tourney at IS:'.' balkltne
in Pittsburg this week. The third player
will be Morning-star Instead of Hoppe,
who played ngatnst the Student and the
Jap In the Philadelphia exhibition series.
Hllllardlsts are talking of lloppe's fine play
In Philadelphia, when he made tnO points
In four Innings and ran 26!. These per
formances, of course, do not go on the rec
ord Imoks. but even If the conditions al
lowed them to do so they wouldn't he rec
ords. Hoppe holds the lecord run of 307,
made In Chicago In 1800, nnd Sutton'
record average of 100 was niadp at S00
points and undPr the proper conditions to
make a lecord stand.
Maurice Duly regards Yamadu as a
candidate for championship honors and
sns of him' "He has a lot to learn,
but will get a lot from observation and
experience. At present he depends on
his execution and lacks system. When he
becomes more metnoiiicai tie win oe me
1 player most liueiy to nave a cnance 10
" ' ii"l'l' '"i'' r.
I temperament seems to be nn Ideal one
for a billiard pljyer. If he Is susceptlblo
or any emotion ins inimooiie counienanco
does not betray It. Apparently all oppe-
ttents look ullke to him."
Clarence Jackson, who took patt In two
nations, amateur tournaments, one In
' Chicago In 1908 and the other In New
I York In 1 HO!'. Is playing tine billiards at
1S;2 b.ilkllne. in practice nt Foley's
in Chicago the other day he averaged
, 19'.,. The following night he ran 142
I and averaged 29.i( In COO. Jackson may
i Hgure In the next national amateur tour-
nament He was adjudged h professional
j under the definition of an amateur which
! exclulrd ui:y person employed by manu
I factum s of billiard tables. Hut the rules
of the National Association of Amateur
Hlllla id Players are undergoing revision
.and heteaft r .in nmateur probably will
i be defined as a player who does not,
' directly or ltnllrictly, get any revenuo
' fioni any game of billiards. It Is likely,
1 theiefoie that Jackon will he icstoted
to good standing.
