"Vucli a favorable stage that It is unlikely
the deal will fall through.
Advices from Cincinnati told Saturday of
the activity of the North American Com

well, general consul for the company and
one of Its directors, admitted the pendency
of tho negotiations, but refuted to give de
tails. It was ascertained, however, from abso
lute authority, that the scheme contem
plates the incorporation of a new company,
which will be the representative ot the
North American In Cincinnati and will
consolidate the Cincinnati Gaslight and
Coke Company, which has a capital of

GOSSIP OF THE GOLFERS.
Prafesmor Toll an the Golf Ball Notes
of the Link.
Professor Guthrie Tait, father of the I.ato
F. G. Tait, who was killed in the Boer War.
ha. been obliged, through falling health, to
resign the chair at Edinburgh University,
which he has occupied for nearly forty
years. A foreign exchange. In commenting
on the subject, says: "Professor Tait was a
keen golfer.' and in his day a strong player.
To earlv Instruction at home the late 'Fred
die' Tait must have partly owed his skill
of riper years, and it is certain that the fa
ther's example Influenced the son's methods
on the puttlng-gree-n. They both putted
with an ordinary cleek, tho shaft shortened,
and each was deadly In that department of
the game. At one time the professor car
ried out a scries of experiments, with a
view to determining the initial velocity of a
golf-ball driven from the tee. and its ca
pacity for sustaining flight. In Mr. Low's
interesting 'Record' there are several allu
sions to these experiments. Professor Tait
seems to have nrrived at the conclusion
that a hard-hit golf-ball was traveling
about 340 feet per econd on leaving the tee.
He also estimated the limit of "carry at
about 1P0 yards, and must have b?en rath
er disconcerted when poor 'Freddie' ex
ceeded the limit by fifty yards. He as
cribed the difference betweeen theory and
practice to 'tinderspln. "
This "underspin" is Imparted by the" club
by striking the ball slightlv below" the cen
ter. The greater the- speed ot the "under
spin" the greater 1 the buoyancy and the
farther the carry. Experiments have shown
that a ball to carry 200 yards wlthotit any
"underspin" would have to leave thft club
head at a "velocity somewhat greater! than
that of sound.
"Snake" Ames, the famous Princeton full
hack, has been elected captain of the Glen
View Golf Club, near Chicago.
Plans are under consideration for laving
out a nubile golf course In Xewark. It is
proposed to ask the Park Commission to lay i
out a nine-hole coursp at the upper end ot" j
Branch Brook Prk, beginning at the Pal
atine Parkway gate, and extending to the i

The new club house Is being built for tho

A golf club has been organized at San

Not only wcr the delegates in favor ot
this, but the ameers of the association, al

The cue ball looks like it will hardly
reach the fourth cushion, but when it
slowly rolls up to the end rail It shoots
off at a strange angle.

length of the days calls for a spring date.
"I was asked in the convention an em
barrassing question, asi to how many West
ern' tepresentatives were in the habit of at
tending the championship when held In tho
East. I told them it was perfectly true we
had never sent a representative delegttion
to an Eastern championship, but that this
was owing to two causes tlrst, during the
lirct three years of the association Messrs.
Maeelonald and Whigham so far outclassed
all our plaers that If they could not win
we felt it was useless to send any other
repiesentatives; second, during the last
three years the championship has been held
during the first week In July, which waa
the difficulty we weie now trying to avoid
by asking for a later date.
"I assured the convention, that if this plea
was granted we would send a large and
representative delegation, and I cannot too
strongly urge upon the Westerners the ful
fillment of this promise. In fact. I went so
far as to say that If the West did not meet
the generous treatment of the East by sup
porting the championship In the way we
should. In the future we could not complain
of any treatment wo might receive at Its
"The Western Golf Association has been
most solicitous in asking for this change of
championship date. It has got all It asked
for. and we recelvd most generous and
gentlemanly treatment at the convention.
If the West does not rise to the occasion
and show that we had cause for asking for
this change I shall be the first ono to move
in the next convention that the national
championship be held in June.
"At the last champlonsnlp there were but
tlireo Chicago representatives. Ono ot
these was an undergraduate at an Eastern
college and wns not entered from Chicago.
He qualified and made a good showing.
Tho two Chlctgo representatives did not
even qualify. If we can't mako a better
showing than that this year we have no
right to ask the Eastern golfers to go
against their best Interest by placing the
championship In the autumn.

am sure we will do it."

Gffi TO THE GORE.
Charley Ilerr's Owner Willinrr. to
Take Chance Against The Ab
bot, Cresceus and Boralnia.
Lexington. Ky., March 1C Nothing but
Charley Herr and the proposed race be
tween David CnnUl's great stallion and
The Abbot, Cresceus and Boralraa is
talked of In trotting circles here. New im
petus was given the matter by the an
nouncement of Mr. Cahill that he was will
ing to enter a race open to the world with
J10.000 to start and an association to add a
purse, the money to be divided as is usual
In stake races. This proposition chimes in
with that of Thomas W. Lawson, the Bos
ton millionaire, owner of Boralma. and thus
assures the starting of Boralma. and Char
ley Herr. The poor dairyman "owner goes
farther and says that if the owners of
other hor3es are not willing to enter he
will start Charley Herr against Boralma
under like conditions.
Mr. Cahill laughs at the assertion that
Charley Herr and Boralma do not class
with Cresceus and The Abbot, and de
fends his position by reference to the race
records of the horses. He says:
"Tho Abbot has a mark of 2:03'4. and
Cresceus a mark of 2.01, while Charley ha3 a
record of 2:07 and Boralma a mark of 2:08.
But if you get down to the race records of
tho horses you find that they are bunched
pretty close together.
Tho Abbot's mark is 2.064 in a race and
Cresceus has a race record of 2:06. If you
look at it in this way Boralma and Charley
belong right along with the other two
horses. Then you must remember that
Charley drove Cresceus to his mark and I
that at Lexington there was an argument
in tho timers' stand as to whether he had
trotted a mile In 2:07 or in 2:0G& and that
thoy only gave him the former mark after
a Jong discussion. Then my horse is com
ing G years old, and that ought to be to
his advantage. Boralma Is only 6, and will,
therefore, bo at a disadvantage. I know
that my horse has the flight of speed, as
he has shown me quarters In :23V4. and that
he can carry It as well as any other horso
before the public. He Is getting to be n
better racing animal every year. As a 3-year-old
he was sluggish and hard to get
going, he was better in his 4-year-old form,
and it had almost entirely disappeared last
year. I do not expect to see a trace of It
this season. I have had my horse in my
barn at tho track since the middle of Jan
uary. He is serving a limited number of
mares and is being jogged every day. I
think he is in as good fettle as ho ever was
in his life, and I am going to give him
early preparation, so that It will not be
necessary for him to race into his best form
as It was last year."

Further details regarding the challenge

that unless tho links chosen by AA'hite is
