Golf's greatest links, St. Andrews, was last
week tho scene of the- annual open cham
pionship of England. It was the open cham
pionship par excellence, for any and every
golfer might start. Irrespective of nation
ality. Tho only difference between ama
teurs and professionals 1 that the form-r
ray an entrance tee of 1 and the latter but
30 shillings, while the amateurs, of course.

tfmatcur may win only the first prize, -which
will be in plate. John Hall. Jr.. and H. H.
Hilton are the only amateurs who have
ever carried off tho "blue, ribbon1 of the
links, the latter, who last month won his
first amateur championship, having been
Fuccessful In 1K and again In 1S9i. Prior
to last week the open championship was
last played for at St. Andrews In ISM. when
J. H. Taylor scored tho first victory for a
English professional, since which time,
however. It has ncv er been won by a Scotch
player. Taylor repeated his victory on
Thursday last. St. Andrew Is the longest
of the championship links, 6,521 yards'. The

The record Is seventy-one, held by Willie
Auchertonie. Harry Vardon Is now wear
ing his third championship medal and he
cut short his American trip In order to
play at St. Andrews, Mr. Hilton. In writ
ing on the open chainplon.-hip In The Queen,
lias this to say:
"Vardon has expressed a natural aniDition
to wn tho event over tho classic green, and
he may rest assured that the Scotch con
tingent will make a great t-ffort to wrest
the honors from him and brejk the sequence
of English successes. Andrew Klrkaldy is
the Individual to -whom one naturally turns
ni the most Hkelv to urcomplish the real.
He knows every inch of the course, and N
credited with playing fin-r golf over St.
Andrews than over any other green. This,
however, la a peculiarity which belongs to
th" majority of St. Andrews golfers. In
contradiction to Andrews's partiality for his
native green, Vardon Is reported to have ex
pressed disapproval of St. Andrews as a test
of the game.
Detailed accounts are at hand regarding
the amateur championship at Sandwich. In
one of the earlier matches Mr. Eric Harabro
beat Ivlr. Finch Hatton by 4 and 3. and
lowered the record by a stroke. It had
been 78, F. G. Talt. J. II. Taylor and Harry
Vardon having each made this score, and
the record stood at tlies figures from ISM
to last year, when Jack White made a
round In 75.
Mr. Hilton began his match with Mr.
Graham by holing out in - from a full
braisey tiiat? - t t;1s"ednced-d- TJvAtI.- had
an easier week, through the "luck of the
draw," than the runner np. Mr. James
Jlobb. who had to put out Messrs. Blyth.
Loldlav. Pease an-J Bramston. In the linal
Mr. Hilton showed a better all-round quali
ty than Mr. Robb. for the latter was not
only deficient la length, but his game lacked
the elasticity and variety which Mr. Hil
ton's displayed. In putting Mr. Hilton

" Tho courtesy of the green" Is a phraso
with many meanings," says Mr. George Mc
Grew. "When players are in front, not
only courtesy but the ordinary rules of
safety, demand that those behind should
wait until the second shots have been
played and the players themselves are out
of range. Those who have felt the Impact
of a well-driven golf ball need not be told
of the stunning blow that can be adminis

makes the player wonder If he can't miss
It after all. and the moment doubt enters
his mind confidence is gone. So. too, ex
pressions of sympathy tor poor shots are
unnecessary, if a stroke is unlucky or
plainly below a man's ability, his partner

Miss Maglll, second. Vardon has said that
Ireland has more good golf links than any
country on earth. Praise as high may be
paid to the Irish women who golf. It Is
time for the men of that country to show
some merit, for so far the Irish open ama

homebred, nor has on Irishman been prom

Harold Hilton, winner of the amateur golf
championship of England, has shattered
the traditions of the sport, rhotographs
of the clever Hrlton. taken while the big
tournament was In progress, show hlra In
the act of puffing a cigarette as he was
making his strokes. Not only was ha
smoking when driving, but while putting,
according to tho trustworthy camera, the
English golfer did not think It worth the
trouble to remove the cigarette from his
mouth. Even In ordinary pleasure games
few players have the temerity to smoke
when putting, and In special matches tho
stroke Is done carefully. The golf player
when putting usos the same precaution as
an expert billiard player does executing a
delicate shot, liesldcs going about the
stroke very gingerly, he requires silence on
the part of the spectators, the gallery
never speaking above a whisper until the
stroke Is over. This will show how un
usual it strikes the followers of the game
on this side to see the winner of tho Eng
lish championship disregarding nil prec
edent. And, though Champion Hilton's
hravado may be admired. It Is certain he
will not find many imitators among the
fraternity on this side of tho Atlantic

It Is nonsenre to asseverate that the St.
Ixmls team Is anythlrg but a crack organi
zation. Individually It is the best team In
the world. Collectively it l.s far from its
Individual excellence. It has not been play
ing good ball. Games have been lost
through poor all-round playing.
It was not the weakness of any Indi
vidual member beond the occasional
I.tpsos which oune to all players, that lost
these games. The club Is good enough In
every way to win the championship. Mc
Gann. who has played excellent ball at the
bat. Is probably the only man In the regu
lar team that Is not of championship cali
ber. Young. Ilughey. Jones. Powell, Wey
hing and Sudhoff belong with a champion
ship club. The outth-ld Is good. How else
could It be when a man like Donovan has
to sub on It? Who can beat McGraw and
Wallace? A team that can turn a catcher
like O'Connor looso must be strong behind
the bat. How many men dropi-ed by the St.
Louis team this season as not fast enough
have been grabbed by other clubs? I.-ive
Cross was not fast enough for St. Louis.
Hrooklyn. a pennant winner, has) him.
Cuppy was not good enough for St. I.ouls.
Huston, another pennant pretender, grabbed
him. Any pitcher on the club's roll to-uay
would be snatched In an Instant were he let
go. Many clubs want Qulnn, who is but a
St. Louis sub. How many eould u-e any
of the St. I.ouls Intlelders? Chllds Is
snatched by Chicago and does wtll. O'Con
nor Is bought for a large sum by a club
with pennant claims. In fact, every good
club In the league, with the single excep
tion of Philadelphia, ha been strengthened
bv the cast-offs of thLs St. Louis team. If
the cast-offs are strong players, how about
the hold-ons? Does not this argument
stand to reason? if men not good enough
for St. I.4H1IS) can strengthen Brooklyn, Chi
cago and Pittsburg, all good clubs, how
good ought the men St. Luuls has be?
It ha been said that the pitchers have
lost the games. Bosh! The series played
by the Eastern clubs in this city showed all
the pitchers, save Young, to be in great
form and capable of winning. Powell,
Jones. Sudhoff and Wevhing showed up
splendidly. Jones pitched two actual and
three virtual shut-outs against Brooklyn,
Boston and Philadelphia, three of the four
strongest clubs In the League. The su
periority of the Brooklyn pitchers did not
win them a game in St. Louis of the three
they got. Powell and Young and Jonea
outpitched their vls-a-vls In three Phila
delphia games. Powell sulked In the fourth
because ho was not suited In his catchtr.
New York and Boston did not show su
Ierior pitching to St. Louis's. Neither did
Cincinnati. Neither did Pittsburg Chi
cago did. and Chicago alone. Pitchers do
not make a whole team. Philadelphia is
leading a mile, jet the Philadelphia pitch
ers have been hit harder than any others.
Kennedy la the only Brooklyn pitcher wh'j
has r.ot been hit regular!, and now and
then he gets his for a bunch of blngle.-.
I.eever, Waddell, Tannehill and Chcsboro
get theirs every now and then. Chicago,
a second division low-down team, alone
has great pitchers. Even their twirlcrs,
bar Garvin, who has lost many games In
which his opjionems got but six hits, have
been walloped right along. Garvin, with all
his great pitching, Iras lost more fanna
than he has won.
I.ack of pitching ability has not lost St.
Louts games. The club N playing rotten
all-round baseball, in Boston ami again
In New York eriors drove Jones out of tho
box. The team has been inaklns errors
Tvlth a liberal hand. In five uarnes It mado
nineteen -rrors. Almost live to a game. How
can a pitcher win with that kind of tieldin;
back of him? Then men have been caught
napping on bases on an average of two to
a gume. Fine work!
Then look at the ball playing. In New
York, against a dub team, St- l-oui got ten
hits and eleven bases on balls, yet scorl
three runs. Ball players say that a base
on balls Is uond as u hit. So St. Louis
made three Tuns off twenty-one hits. New
ork got fourteen hits' and two buses on
bafiM, or sixteen hits In all. That rotten
club made ten runs off these fourteen hits.
Thirteen St. Iouls men were left on bases.
Was weal; pitching of the Su Louis twirlers
responsible- for eleven bases on balls nnd the
thliteen men being left en basv? For the love
of Hancock, will some one tell us what kind
of oail plavlng It that? You could take out
a lot of abdominal minuctterc. In Mother
Hubbanls und get better playing out of
them than ihat. What is the matter with
the club? Tne writer cannot pretend to say.
Certainly It is not any individual weakness
at any one point. The team has been aver
aglrg eleven hits to a game. It has been
averaging almost half as many errors- Er
rors have certainly hurt. St. Louiti beat
Cuppy by scoring five runs- on an error after
two Iiandn wrre out. Many times have Su
Louis pitchers bs.n beaten the same way.
Analyzing It. tho team seems to be losing
because It has h" i fielding illy and run
ning bases stupidly rather than that the
pitching ha been bad or the batting weak.
When twenty-four men get to base as they
did in New York and only threo cross the
plate, what Is tho matter? Is It the pitch
ing? Eighteen New Yorkers goj to base in
the Same game four on errors, two on bases
on Lalls and fourteen on hits. They made
ten runs. Jones and Young sent twenty
one men to base. Seymour sent twenty-two.
Who pitched Iho best game? It has been
remarked that McGraw Is not getting tho
work out of the team he -should; that he Is
not delivering the goods. What goods Is
McGraw- supposed to deliver? He Is hitting
.. He has played many less Mimes than
any man on the team, but has stolen more
bases than any of them. He has made er
rorn. also mighty fielding plays. Ho has
delivered the goods with the bat. with feet
and hand. What other goods arc on tho
Net any that a captain can deliver. Mc
Graw has filled the bill. So has Wallace.
So has Kelster. So has Qulnn. So has Don
lln. Heldrick: all the pitchers, save Young.
Donovan nnd McGann did not hit as well
as expected, neither did Burkett, until late
ly, but he Is coming nnd has- done welt
enough. Tho club Is all right It should
win games. It phould be a championship
contender every day of the season. It will
be. It must be. That Is what It Is meant
for. It cannot exist unless It Is.
It must bo remembered that the club Is
not out of the race; Philadelphia has a
ten games on It with over 100 games to go.
Brooklyn leads It three games. It Is In the
race all right. Philadelphia will come back.
Boston will come up. They are not yet
The team Is all right. It stands all right.
But It has been nlaylng such poor ball. In
forty games It has played but about four
good ones. It Is not the lost that hurt or
trouble. It Is the awfully bad ball played.
A week's good play will put the club on
top. But Its play has been so bail that
people feel It tins not that week's good work
Let u wait until July 5 before passing
Judgment. That Is a month away. By
that time something must have been doing.
Roasting is great fun. makes much better
reading than boosting, but give them a
chance. They have played awful ball, but
they are still in the ring and liable to win.
"Is Cy. Young going to be the pitching
failure of the year?" writes a crank on
players to The Republic Then answering
his own question he says: "I am sure he Is."
The records for years back show that
Young's great strength lay In beating tail
end clulis. He has never been effective
against leading clubs. In 1K7 he won only
half his games against first-division clubs,
but won fourteen out of fifteen against tall
endcrs. In 1S98 he won seven nnd lost
twelve games to the leaders, then won four
teen nnd lost four to tho tall-enders. In
1S99 he won ten and lost nine to leaders, but
won seventeen and lest but six to tho rag
tag. Cuppy. lame arm nnd all. always led
him In wins against the good teams. Now,
this year we have pretty near all good
teams, but, I think, that "Big Cy" will
not bo so effective as he was." Maytw
the writer of the above is right, but the
club that had three Youngs would come
mighty close to winning the pennant.
The rumor about McGraw and Robinson
Jumping the Bt. Louis club emanated from
that town of opium and bad whisky Pitts
burg. That Is enough.
Boston papers quote Mr. F. De Hiss
Roblson an saying that Umpire EmsIIe was
prejudiced against Player McGraw, and
wrongfully put him out of the sun at
Boston. Maybe Mr. EmsIIe did make a
mistake. If he did. It does not become a
club owner and sportsman like Mr. Robl
son to support a rebellious player In a
revolt agaln't umpirlcal iiuthorlty. How
noes Mr. Koblson Know .vir. tmslle Is
prejudiced against McGraw, or that even
if he docs know he is so prejudiced, lit: al
lowed such prejudice to govern him In put
ting McGraw out of the game? Mr. Robl
son should support his umpires). He and
his copartners' In dud ownership are al
ways making rules to enforce umpirlcal
power and control players. They ore al
ways the first to show the players how to
break them. Newspapers are always berat
ing players for rowdyism, und calling upon
the magnates to suppress it. Who aro the
real umpire baiters, the real rowdies, the
real anarchists of baseball? Not the play
ers. Who ran Tommy Connolly and Tom
Lynch, Tim Hurst, and other good umpires
out of the game? Not the players. No, the
Mr. Roblson has always been a eiean
sportsman. He has never protested um
pncs. bruw-b.uten them or had them tired.
He cannot afford to bgin now. He Is a
good loser, and a broad-minded man. He
should support, not attack Umpire Emsile.
He should leave umpire baiting to men of
the Rogers. Dreyfuss. Freedman stamp. It
Is beneath him. Mr. Roblson Is a good fel
low. He Is a better fellow sometimes than
others. If he has a piece of news ho
wants printed ho Is ail awful nice man. If
he has n piece of news which be doei
not wiiiit printed and 'i want to print
it. he Is not such a nice man. But all in
all there are worse fellows. He runs a de
cent park and a decent club. Money has
never been his god. He can afford to let
umpires alone. Leave them to McGraw and

from any one.

Doctor Alexander Murray, the dentist, I
a very enthusiastic cricketer. I.ong years
ago he learned the game about Edinburgh,
when he was wearing petticoats, and break
ing his mother's heart with the cakes be
ale and the kilties he tore. Doetor Murray
Is the Atlas who props up the St. Louis
Cricket Club. He is a very good type of
sportsman, a man who knows all manly
games, from roque to polo, from tennis to
boxing. He possesses a keen eye and a
Judgment that Is almost Infallible. Doctor
Murray Hkes to play cricket. He is also
taken with baseball. Unlike Englishmen
who cannot see much merit in basebal1. as
compared with their own national game.
Doctor Murray thinks baseball a very
much superior game to cricket, from a
spectacular point of view. He al'o admits
that It calls for greater fielding and throw
ing skill, but denies that It requires such
a batting eye as cricket.
"I have always ben much Interested in
making comparison between the English
and American games," said Doctor Murray,
as he was killing a Jumping nerve with a
corkscrew the other day. "The other day
I was looking up the distance of the longest
hits In both game". I found that Thornton,
who was to cricket In England what Ia
Jole Is to baseball, once hit a tly ball 173
vards. from bat to place of first contact
with the ground. The .best recorded base

"A cricket ball Is not so lively as n base
ball. It does not go so well off bat, and it
will not sail In air as a baeb.ill doe-. I
have seen many good baseball players at

fall on the llrst few attempts. They would
Imagine that they were under It. expecting
It to all and carry, like a baseball. To
their very great surprise It would rise to
Its apex and drop like a bullet. It is a bit
heavier and not so thoroughly globular as
n baseball. I think the crlrket bat Is a bet
ter driving tool than the baseball bat. but
the difference does not make up for the ad
vantage the lively ball gives the hitter.
"Of course, a cricketer has a fuller swing
and can get more power Into It. He picks
the ball up with the bat as it rises off tho
ground on Its first bound. Thus he can get
his entire weight nnd shoulder power Into
the swing, something the ball player cannot
do. save on a low ball. Even then I have.
In common with every other cricketer,
found that vou can hit a ball farther after
taking It on" the rise of the bound than you
can If It comes on the fly as from the bowl-j
er to Hip batter. ,,,..., ,
"It is somewhat .remarkable In this regard
that, heavy though the cricket ball Is, bet
ter throwing records have been made with
It than with tho baseball. This Is still more
wonderful when you consider that throwing
Is not in anv sense as important or highly
developed In cricket as in baseball. Manv
excellent cricketers Jerk or throw underhand,
and sharp, fast throws are seldom seen or
called for. The bowler, w ho Is the pitcher,
throws with a round, stiff arm movement,
no (.ending of tho wrist or shoulder.
"The record for throwing a baseball Is 133
yards some inches, by Ed Crane. Cricket
has a record of 14C.J yards. This throw was
made In Australia by an aboriginal named
Billy the Black. He evidently got his whip
throwing a lioomernr.g at the cockatoos and
dingoes in the bush. I guess that Is why
Joe Qulnn has such a good arm. Joseph,
you know. Is an Australian. Mot of the
good throws made with a cricket- ball were
made lK-nenth the Southern Cross. I guess
the climate of England Is too cold nnd damp
to bring arms up to a line point. Yet records
show that In 1S72 Ross McKensie no rela
tive, as far as I can find, of Gadfly Mc
Kcnsle's threw a cricket ball 140 yards at
Durham. At Wolverton, In 1819, George
Brown threw 132 yards. In 1SS? A. McKellnr
shlfid It lSfj yards at Dundee. Australia. At
Clontarf no, not where Brian Boru earned
undving fame, hut in Australla-O. David
fun 'threw 130 vanls. These are all great
throws, better than nnj thing we can find
In baseball. Yet I shrewdly surmise that
they were made with Ihe wind. Billy the
Black must havo had a wonderful nrm. His
backer would bet J100 any time that he
would throw 130 yards first rattle out of the
box. Though they do not pay as much at
tention to throwing as they do here, crick
eters take more Interest In throwing
matches than do ball players. I guess there
is less fear of hurting arms among the for
mer. Ball players hate to throw hnrd and
far, for such work is liable to ruin an arm."
Mr. Wnyman McCrery is rroliablv the
only native-born American cricketer in the
West. He learned the game while at col
lege near Raclno. Wis. Mr. McCreery was
nlso a line ball player In his school days.
He still plays cricket. G-lf Is hU bat'i mbe,
so to speak: at least, his long suit. Mr. Mc
Creery Is one of the most thorough all
round sportsmen and athl-:es In the woild.
If there Is a game that he has not pla.vtd
and at which ho has not achieved at least
a modicum of skill, I would like to know It.
"Playing cricket in thl3 climate Is very
much harder work than playing tascball."
said Mr. McCreery. "You see, even in dub
games, an Inning at cricket requires two
or three hours' play. You are out in the
field during all that time, without anv in
termlsslon. Get a pair at s&od n.en at lat
and you do some lively leather chasing.
With the weather 1 In tne sun, you ere

they endure to play cricket In Australia,

"Where is tho pitcher that has not had

"What I regard as the most singular fen
ture of this really remarkable season."
spake Jere Hunt, retently. "Is the truly
astonishing consideration the two Chicago
clubs have displayed toward each other.
Since the first day of the season these teams
have been running side by side: that Is, they
have held the same positions lti their re
spective leagues. Not only that, but even
In games won and lost they stand ruarvel

Comlskey. Now the American League Club
under Comslkey has a shadethe better of the
National under Loftus. This morning has
seen them farther apart than they have
been at any period this season, but a day
or two will bring them together again."
"That Cincinnati club Is overbalanced

"Brooklyn does the best work I ever taw
done at the bat," declares that eminent
critic, Jere Hunt. "The members ef that
team are required to take two strikes, it

not to even look at It- He reasons that

McGraw gets his base on balls more often

wears a pitcher out, but moves mound in

must piny a scientific game of ball. There
are certain implied rules that are mandatory-
If a man Is on first base and no
one Is out the next batter must hit toward
right field. It is not optional with the bat
ter. He Is not allowed to crack away and
hit where he pleases He must hit toward
right field. Then If the ball goes through
the other infield the man on first wllljtflual

llvely on the bases and can take two bases
on a ground hit to right. This rule is
known to the other teams, but they follow
it right along Just the same. It even cost
them a game In St. Louis, but where it
.costs them one game It wins ten for them.
Why, we have men who would bat around
.400 per cent if Hanlon would allow them
to hit haphazard. He will not stand for it.
The players must play the game at the bat
Just the same as In the field. They must
not jplay for records, but think first of the
