New York. Sept 15. At the next meet
Ins of the Jockey Club a rule will be
acted on with the Idea of preventing the
cutting doun of horses, which has been
of frequent occurrence during the present
season. One Instance In which a valuable
thoroughbred was ruined on bis first start
was when the Oak Ridge Stable, owned
by Thomas .Fortune Ryan, started King
Simon "at Belmont Park early In the
eason. There were only three horses In
the field, 3 et one of them cut King Simon
so badly with sharp plates that the colt
had to be thrown out of training and
has not yet recovered from the Injury.
The rule proposed by Thomas Hltcb--cock
will prevent the use of dangerous
plates. It reads
No horse shall start In a race having
on Ills forefeet shoes or plates with toes
or any "contrivance which may endanger
At the same meeting the rule which
allowed the starter to place vicious 01
unruly horses In a line behind the others
wlU be amended to read:""
Nevertheless, the starter may place
Tidousor unruly horses where they can
not injure others.

GRIFFS DIVIDE BILL
WITH THE BROWNS
COXT1XTED FROM TACE ONE
Lavan pulled up at third and Weilman
popped to Morgan.
After two were out in the Washington's
eighth singles by Milan and Gandll put
men on first and third. Weilman got tan
gled up in his moves and Evans called a
balk, waiting Milan home and Gandll to
second. There w as an awful uproar from
the Browns which resulted in Weilman
being chased. Gandll pilfered third but
died there when Baumgardner. who had
succeede Weilman struck out Shanks.
After two were out In the Browns
eighth, Pratt singled to right and gate
way to Wllllami. who ran for him. Gus
swiped second. Here Ajers seemed to
use poor judgment. He purposely passed
Walker, who hadn't hit him all afternoon,
to 'get to Howard, who already owned
two singles. Howard delivered his third
blow, a single to center, that scored Wil
liams. Evans then called the game be
cause of darkness.

Famous Young Player Demon
strated His Ability at Both
Stroke and Match Play and
Won the Title Also.
Francis Ouimet demonstrated. In no
uncertain way, his ability as a stroke
player when he beat Ray and Vardon
That he Is an equally good match player
has been shown by his victory oer
Travers for the national amateur cham
pionship. It Is a question whether any
other plaer living: can beat Travers
seven holes running, yet that is what
the youthful Bostonlan did. The remark
able feature of his match with Travers
was that at no time was he off the
straight line, and it will be remembered
that in that memorable triple tie at
Brookllne last ear not once did he get
into trouble. ,
It Is not necessary at this late date
to refer to the difference in medal and
match play. But there is as much sim
ilarity between them as there Is plajlnr;
right field and shortstop on the ball
field. And when )ou find a man who
plays well at match and medal you find
the rara avis In golf.
Travis, Hilton, Ball. Evans, and Oui
met are noted examples of these ambP
dextrous golfers. If we may use such a
term, and sowehow It Beems to fit rather
well, for the stroke player Is the right
handed man and the match player the
left-handed man. or viceTersa. Oulmet's
triumph la the triumph of youth. Travers
is young, but the- youngster from New
England is even younger. Two of the
veterans, Travis and Fownes. ' reached
the semi-finals. It was Travis' first ap
pearance In the last four since 1908,
when- Travers beat him by 2 up. .Fownes
Incidentally gave Ouimet the hardest
match that youth had during the entire
tournament, ana no one win begrudge
him the'honor-of the gold medal for" the
low qualifying score which he won in
the tie with .Garton. His play through
the tournament was 'splendid and-it dem

Racquet Forbids Violation
of the Khowh Ethics.
Who will deny that the tennis man
possesses a deep reverement for his fa
vorite outdoor pastime, and an almost
holy devotion for the skilled perform
ers of International reputation? This
was exemplified at the recent Davis Cup
matches at Forest Hills. Of course, in
a crowd of 11,000 persons, comprising the
spectators at afiy branch of competition,
there .are sure to be many who are not
thoroughly conversant with the par
ticular game. Many perhaps never lav

slightest familiarity with the method of
scoring It or even the object of the
competing players. This is always more

It Is not to be wonaerea at mereiorc.
nor can It be considered a- reflection on
the nation's deportment as a whole,
when a considerable number of specta
tors in a crowd totaling tens of thou
sands display a lack of knowledge of
the ethics Incumbent upon them to prop
erly gallery to the contests.
The conduct of the vast assemblage
at the recent Davis Cup matches, despite
the fact that the ethics of a gallery at
a tennis match are more Involved and
less known to the uninitiated than In
any other branch of sport, was as near
perfect as would be possible for so vast
an assemblage to be. So one, no mat

be, could be expected to be an ethical

breach of tennis ethics and to realize
the handicap of an unethical gallery.
Slcns to Instrnet Gallery.
It caused a ripple of laughter to run
over the stands. Indulged In no doubt by
the unthinking gallery experts, when tho
ball boys of the West Side Club held
up before each of the four stands the
large and legible signs of Instruction,
which read: "Do not applaud until the
point Is finished. Do not applaud er
rors." They laughed at the thought of
any one committing such a breach In
either case. Tet It was this cleer and
thoughtful precaution which was respon
sible for the best behaved gallery in pro
portion to Its size In the history of in
ternational lawn tennis, competition.
It is perfectly true that on a number
of occasions applause followed errors,
but it was usually well-intentioned ap
plause, and Invariably It was meant for
the skilful shots of both plajers In the
rally leading up to 'the error which
ended the point Never In the course of
the match did the gallery applaud a point

of an error made on the Antlpoleans'
The much discussed Incident of Brookes
throwing down his racket, holding his
hand up, shaking his head in a dis
gusted fashion and then childishly put
ting his fingers In his ears to shut out
trie applause, was most unwarranted.
This applause followed a series of the
most brilliant shqls seen in the entire
three days of play. There were thou
sands of spectators who had seen Will
iams play and knew what he could do.
There were thousands more who had
seen players perform who had been
beaten by Williams decisively. All were
disappointed and mystified by the poor
showing of the Phlladelphlan. Natural
ly, therefore, when, after being appar
ently beaten. Williams gave a flash of
hla known form at the end of the third
set against Brookes, and after a series
of marvelous angles and miraculous
placements delivered at kiting speed,
which permitted him to break through
Brookes' service for the first time, a
veritable pandemonium broke loose.
Nothing could check it Everybody par
ticipated, and Brookes should have ex

Had the West Side officials not taken
the precaution to discourage Ill-timed
applause, however, the many hundreds
of spectators present who had never
seen competitive tennis, whose knowl
edge of the game consisted of the stereo
typed witticism, "forty lo,ve," which they
always had on tap and which they call

uninitiated would not applaud a faulty
service. His accusation of partisan ap-
plause is not a true bill, as the enclosure
rang with applause for the brilliant shots
of Brookes and Wilding, who were cheer -

Williams on etery occasion when their
play called for applause, and this ap
plause, by the na seemed In no way
offensive to Mr. Brookes
The crowd reallj bchaed wonderfully
well, better In fact than could be ex
pected under the conditlons-as explained.
The McLoughlln-Brookes match of the
first day was somewhat marred as the
pendulum of adantage swung back and
forth through that wonderful first set
by tbe encouraging shout several times
sent to "Mac" when he seemed to be
slipping: "Go to it Mac, old boy." And
again when "Mac" sent a sizzling service

through Brookes court

storm of hisses drowned each of these

Mr. Kldson, Mr. Brookes and the sev
eral other Australians who criticised the
behavior of- what they chose, to call the
American gallery seem to have overlook
ed tbe very important tact that the
match was being played in the most
cosmopolitan city In the, world, and con
sequently, while of course the Americans
predominated, a very large yortion of the
gallery witnessing the tennis matches
in New Tork were foreigners. The- "call

The real American tennis men arrived

suffered when several dozen of the West

eral players of national repute, who
were foolishly permitted on the playing
