Hot Springs, Ark.. March It Tom Met
calf, who has a strong aversion for playing
the -New Orleans races, confined his opera
tions In that lino on last 'Monday to tho
Oakland track, and as he possesses at all
times an Inherent desire to beat the Irish,
he selected three horses bearing names that
would gladden the heart of any native of
the old soil. Metcalf lit onto Mike Murphy,
Pat Morrlsey and Alice Dougherty, and
tied them up In a combination which paid
3- to 1. Tom put J100 on the combination
and won J1.S00: ho also paroled another 5100
In tho book on the same three horses,
which paid about J1.D00 more, making Mr.
Metcalf win about 3.000 on the three
horses sporting the Celtic names.

Masterly Inactivity in strenuous situations
may be an indication of great strength.
Unless tho apparent inaction of the St.
Louis club can bo explained on this basis it
does not seem that there is much of a
chanco for a strong team in St. Louis during
the coming season. Not that there h.is been
any particular number ot defections, liar
ring the loss of McGraw, Keister and ltob
Inson. the teum Is quite as strong as it was
at tho end of last season. Hobinson was
not here or there. McGraw la a good man.
His place at third base has got to bo tilled.
So f.ir as can be seen. It is the only position
on tho team that will not be filled by as
good or u better man than he who filled it
last season. Keister will be missing. He
can well be spared. Cy Young is not gone,
all this talk about the Boston Ameiican
League club having secured him to tho con
trary notwithstanding. Powell, Jones and
Sudhoff, the other pitchers, havo signed.
Criger has not abandoned the team, even if
it is said that ho has gone to Boston with
Young. Mike Donlln, according to report,
has signed a St. Louis contract calling for
?i000 for next season. Heidrick. who was
not expected to play hero on account of the
"roasting" Mr. Robison gave him last fall.
has swallowed his pride and will return to
into shape In fine style. "Jack weighed 175

rays of the limelight is proven by tho
cases of Georgo Cuppy and Amos Ruste.
"Three years ago." said Joe Qulnn the
other day. "there were only two pitchers in
the National League that I feared. One of
these was Cuppy, the other Rusie. They
were both wonders. Rusie had trouble with
his employers and quit the game from time
to time. Cuppy threw his arm out one cold
spring day at Toledo because some of his
fielders complained that the opposing team
was hitting him too hard for their com
fort. Cuppy pitched fine ball last season
up to the time he was let go by Boston to
reduce expenses. He slipped away just as
I did from Cincinnati and did not play any
more that season. Yet he was forgottch,
though I have no doubt that he can get in
and pitch good ball again this season. I

same, he was forgotten because he slipped
off the stage for a few weeks prior to the
end of the season. No wonder ball players,
actors and newspaper men like to have tho
center and tho light all the time. It is
money out of their pockets when they
haven't got It."
Up In North St. Louis they say that "r.ip"'
Egan is better than he ever was. Kgan is a
good pitcher. He has nerve, speed, control
and box wisdom. He ha3 only one fault. He
is opposed to active pursuance of the stren
uous life. He loves to take his case in his
bed. at his inn, anywhere. He Is not stuck
on hard work. If he was he would havo
three leagues fighting for his services at N,
000 a season. Egan had a chance to go with
Pat Tebcau and the St. Louis club last
season. All he had to do was to join tho
team and go to work. He failed to do so. In
defense of himself, Tebeau was obliged to
send for that other Prince' of Lassitude,
Jimmie Hughey. No more than Egan is
Hughey stuck on work. But he had a chance

hard, pitched good ball and drew a nice sal
ary all season on the strength of it. He is
a good fellow and a St. Louis boy. There
was not a better pitcher In the country
some threo or four years ago. He is still a
young man. He never had a bad arm. There
is not any reason why ho rhould not be a
valuable addition to the pitching staff of
the St. Louis club If he would get out and
get In condition. It Is up to Egan.

White's Integrity and believe that had Sul

fair play from White, I cannot but say
that Dave's objection to him was a very
reasonable one. I have heard of referees
so honest that they have decided their own
monev away in making rulings. Now.
there muy havo been such cases, but 1 am
loath to believe tlior have been.
Bv tho way, though Charley White is not
a rich man nnd has a living to make for
himself and family, I do not think that ho
has given evidence of genuine good tasto In
accepting a. position In McGovern's theatri
cal company. Charley is fully aware of the
fact tint he has been selected to act as the
official referee of Jim Kennedy's California
club and also that Kennedy depends' upon
having McGovern box'in his arena as one of
tho strongest cards'.of, Ids present season.
it is only natural that a man who has to
work for a living will feel very friendly to
tho man who glve3 him a good Job; wher
tho labor is light and the pay prompt and
liberal. That Is what Sam Harris and Mc
Govern have done in White's case. I don't
say that If White was the referee and Mc
Govern nnd Sullivnn were boxing that, in
caso ot any dispute, Charley would give
McGocrn any favor other than that which
ho was entitled to. but it Is only human na

doesn't see this, and common-sense should
tench him that from a box-office point of
viow. In this match, at least, or any other
in which McGovern figures, it would pay
him to have some one other than Charley
Will to to officiate as his referee.
As for the match between Oscar Gardner
and McGovern, I don't think there Is much
to it Though Oscar very nearly knocked
McGovern out with his first punch when
they met in this city before the Broadway
Athletic Club, and most probably would have
defeated him had Johnny White, the referee
of tho night, dono his duty and enforced
thO rules. I look linnn thnt mmth nn n
lucky one, one that he will never be able
iu uinu again.
.When they meet again Terry will be a
llttlo more cautious, and he will give Oscar
no chance to get in another sucli a thump.
He gave Gardner a terrible biding that
night, and as he is better now than he
was then, while Gardner has gone back
considerable, I can see but one ending to
the coming contest. As a drawing card, this
match s vastly Inferior to what one between
McGovern and Sullivan would be.
Charley Mitchell Is on the high seas bound
for home in Merry England, but It Is said
that he will not stay there long, but intends
returning here In the near future. If ha
had any pugilistic intentions, other than of
BuiueiuB me sporting scribes who Inter
viewed him, they did not develop. Charley
is a great Jollier. I am told that his recent
visit was due to a sudden Bacchanalian Im
pulse. Ho certainly bought a lot of the
tawny Juice of the grape while here for
himself and acquaintances, something
which didn't look much like he Intended

their recent boxing bout In Galveston. I
wonder if the Governor ever saw the "Mer

A correspondent, who seems to be very
rat In the collar over tho Governor's action,
writes me, bitterly denouncing him, and de
sires me to "write him up," telling him that
he "would be better employed in running
down men who carried concealed deadly
weapons and the lynchers and black men
burners of the State than he la In venting
his spleen on poor boxers who hurt no one
Now I have traveled extensively In the
Lone Star State, and, despite the fact that
General Sherman once asserted thnt "If hn
had his choice between hell and Texas as a
place of residence" he would decide th favor
of sheol. I do not think so badly of Texas.
Now a man may live in Texas for ten
years, and never have need of a gun. If he
behaes himself properly and avoids en
tanglements with drunken men, though I
am bound to conless that if he does need the
"deadly hardware," lie wants It instanter.
Now I agree with my correspondent that
it would be better for Texas and Its cit
izens If Governor Sayers, Instead of In
voking the rigors of the law against box
era and boxing, would do all in his power
to encourage both and make them popular.
Where boxing flourishes the use of the pis
tol and the knife decreases, and I am ono
who believes that a black eye or a blcody
nose. In settlement of a quarrel. Is In
finitely to be preferred to the wound of a
bullet or of a knife. Where pugilism flour
ishes, deadly weapons are discouraged, and
this In Itself should be an unanswerable
argument in favor of boxing, as at the
very worst being the less of two evils.
I havo very little sympathy with the
brutes who are lynched for assaults upon
women, though 1 do not approve of burn
ing them to death. Apropos of this let me
tell jou of an excuse for such a burning
made to me in Texas several years ago by
a very intelligent citizen or tnat State.
It Is unfortunate for the afflicted that s o many physicians place their patients
private sanitariums and hospitals to undergo eurgtcal operations that are exceedingly
distressing, dangerous and detaining from home and business when their cases can ba
cured to stay cured by modern methods that are much milder and far more effective.
While our patients can always depend upon the most careful and successful surgical
work when they demand It, or when the case is such that it Is absolutely required In
order to bring about acure. we havo constantly endeavored, throughout all the yeara of
our practice, to eo, perfect our methods of treatment that a cure could be brought about
without the aid of the knife.
It Is comparatively easy to cut out any offending portion of the human body, but
an operation of this kind means a loss to the patient which can never be restored.
If you have a sore on your hand, a surgeon can cure it by cutting off the hand, but how
much greater Is the skill of him who cures tho sore and leaves the hand for future
It was this view of surgery and mediflne that led us to perfect a method for
treating Varicocele and "Stricture, which, without cutting cr burning, or any other form.,,
'of operation, cures 'the disease anil restores thkoirgaHs to'their natural healthy condi
tion. Our system of treatment for both Varicocele and Stricture Is the only one
which cures without operation; this system originated with us and is used exclusive
ly In our practice. The records of our office show cures by this method In 37 per cent
of all cases taken.
In Varicocele, by means of our treatment, the engorged blood vessels are reduced
to their natural state and the organs which they supply are restored to a condition of
health and full usefulness. The method Is painless and requires no loss of time from
In Stricture our treatment removes the obstruction without any pain or discom
fort, simply by the remedies which the patient himself applies at home.
Without the use of those dangerous drugs which enter into the remedies given by
most doctors, and "which leavo such terrible after effects, we cure all stages of
Specific Blood Polsonlns; thoroughly and permanently not only the outward mani
festations, but we rid the wholo system of every vestige of the poison, leaving the skin
and scalp In a clear, healthy, natural condition.
In Nervo-Sexon! disorders wa have also, ns is well known to th medical profes
sion generally, made great advancement over the old-time methods, and never mind J
how long the undermining conditions have been active, we can promise a complete and
permanent restoration to health and of all lost powerj. Cc do not seek simply to tem
porarily stimulate the weakened nervous and physical system which, we are sorry to
say. Is the method of most so-called specialists but to permanently build up the whole
constitution of the patient and a the samo time remove the underlying causes.
Whenever It Is possible to do so" we are very desirous of having the patient call at
our office for a peraonnl Interview. If living away from the city, we will deduct
the railroad fare paid from our regular fee. If you cannot call, write your troubles
fully. Many cases can be cured at home. Hours: S A. M. to 8 P. M. Sunday, 10 A. M.

DOCTOR ALEXANDER MURRAY,
Captain of the St. Louis Cricket Club.
WRITTEN FOR THE SUNDAY REPUBLIC.
The approach of spring stirs the blood of
the lovers of outdoor sports. The St. Louis
Cricket Club anticipates having the best
season in regard to membership and ,also In
the number of matches that will be played.
The club has become a member of the
Northwestern Cricket Association, compris
ing the cities of St. Paul, Minneapolis,
Omaha, Denver, Chicago and Winnipeg,
Canada. A tournament Is played every sea
son. This year the games will be played in
Chicago, matches being played each day
between the visiting teams till the cham
pionship Is decided. The tournament will
last from a week" to ten days.
The grounds at Forest "Park will again be
In charge of Joe Fletcher, the old reliable,
,whlch Is a guarantee that a good wicket
can always be had. The roster of officers
for the ensuing season Is one of the best
that the club ever had, and cricket is sure
to have a boom the present season. The
officers are: Colonel WiUlam Grayson,
president; William M. Porteus, vice presi
dent; James W. Trick; F. S. Roberts, treas
urer; Doctor A. Murray, captain; F. W.
Ratcllff, vice captain; Colonel F. W. Clinch,

The playing season will begin as soon as
the grounds are fit to play on. The secre
tary will be pleased to give any Information
to any one interested In the game.
lynchers was burned to death, t w.is In
Galveston and saw an exhibition there il
lustrating the burning of this negro. I pat
ronized the "show," and the horrible re
production of the terrible affair affected me
so that I turned away from It almost nau
seated. A few days afterward, while on
the cars bound for Houston, a gentleman
came over to me, and said:
"You're from the North, ain't you7"
I answered that I was.
He continued. "I thought so when I saw
you over at that exhibition of the lynch
ing In Paris and noticed the look of dis
gust on your face. Now. have vou any
idea why we burn the black brutes who
assault our women as that scoundrel did?"
I replied, "If there Is any specific reason
for so doing -I do not know why it Is."
"I'll tell you." he responded. "Now, our
field-hands, such as that fellow was, have a
superstition anu we burn them because we
wish to take advantage of that superstition.
If wo were to take one of these brutes, try
him by law and hang him upon conviction,
we wouldn't frighten.hlm.or any of the oth
ers of his class the slightest bit.
"The negro Held hand leads a very hard
life. It's all work and little else with him.
He is Inured to hardship and he loves no
toriety and'sensationollsm. Putting him In
the Jail would mean a cessation from hard
work ease and plenty of food. The fact
that he was treed would make him an ob
ject of Interest and 'the center of attrac
tion to his fellows.
"If convicted he would have a minister to
visit him, and he would 'get religion. He
would be assured by his minister that death
would end all his sufferings, and that the
instant he died he would be translated to
heaven, where he would live In Joy and
peace for all eternity. This would be a
pleasing prospect for him, but the field
negro nas a superstition tnat any one who
dies by the means of Are is 'devil's meat,'
without any hope Of escape. When one of
these wretches meets death by Are all his
fellows who hear of his end, feel certain
that he has gone to hell, and his fate
strikes terror to their hearts.
"You of the North cannot appreciate the
danger In which we live. Put yourselves In
our places, and knowing all that we know
how would you act were your true wife.
your daughter, your sweetheart or your,
mother the victim of such an outrage as
that for which this miscreant died. I feel
sure that under similar circumstances you
would act Just as we did."
This was plausible and Ingenuous, though
not wholly convincing, albeit a recent
lynching of a negro by burning In Indiana
for criminal assault upon one of Its wom
en seems to indicate-that human nature is
pretty much the .same all over the world.

who had height, reach and strength in his
favor, wasn't content with these advan
tages and thumped Kelley very low down
early In the fight. He appealed, but the ref
eree decided they must "fight on." After
this, Curley appeared to have everything his
cwn way, nnd Kelley, finding that "rough
housa" tactics went, resorted to them in
the hope of changing the tide of battle hl3
way. He was mistaken.
He was soon, owing to his weakened con
dition, so much outpenched that he was
compelled to resort to clinching and to go
ing down without being hit to escape pun
ishment. In the seventh round the referee
disqualified him for going down without a
blow, but there was so much dissatisfaction
among the spectators that all bets were de
clared off. That in Itself shows thiit all
wasn't "straight as a string" and as it
should be on the referee's part.
There Is nothing new to tell about the
Tom Sharkey-Peter Maher match at prs
ent. They haven't been able to get a club
to offer them a suitable purse yet. but I
have no doubt they will very soon. It will
be a hurricane fight and well worth S3 of
any man's money to see. I hope to have
the'pleaaure of witnessing It.
