FOOTBALL PLAYERS ANGRY
Proposed Eules Hay Break Up the
Tal and Princeton Accused of Try
ing to Muke Change, to Suit
The change's in the football rules lliat
re now being so vigorously discussed by
tlic players and admirers' of tlinl same
throughout the country, may break up the
milre Eastern college football combination.
Ttie proposed change that Is making the
trouble is tbal every rusher shall remain
in Ills place In tbe line until after the ball
has !eeii put In play.
Talc and Princeton are the champions of
the proposed change, which, says a foot
ball expert, "is radical, even unknown to
old times, and opposed to every principle
of American college Rugby. It docs away
completely with the many pretty and
htratcglc pieces of flying interference,
round the end plays and general assistance
for the backs, rudiments of the grcatnd
Intelligent game played by Pennsylvania,
Harvard and Cornell and copied by such
ttrong teams as those of Brown, Amherst,
Dartmouth, Williams Lehigh, Lafayette,
Virginia. Michigan, State, Crescents, Chi
c.igos and others without limit.
The question now Is. will these teams
consent to the dictation of Tale and
Princeton, and willingly see their own
teams weakened and the game in gen
eral deprived of much of its merits".

The sudden coming to the front of Jack
McAulirfe with an orter to fight any man
In the world at l:ir, poriuds for $20,C00 a
side, has an air of mystery about it that
makes It very iiilerysUng.
At intervals of a week or two for a year
ormore it has been given out that McAuliffe
was about done for as n pugilist, and a short
time since it was announced that Jack
himself, having come to realize that he
-us no longer In it as a fighter, had quit
the ring for good.
A number of reasons for Jack's alleged
determination were given. One was that
he had grown so big that he could not
again get'down to weight and fight in lib
old class, and that he did not care to go
Into any other.
Another reason given was that Jack's
hands bad gone wrong, and that he could
not get them Into a Mi.'iiie that would
warrant trusting t hem In anotuercbampion
All of the time, however, that this talk
has been going on, McAuliffe has been laying
back out of tight. Hvltig a more qulel and
exemplary life than lie ever lived liefore.
He was around Washington for a couple
of months In the early part of the year,
doing light preliminary work, it was said,
for a limited affair with (iriffo, which.lt
w.is freely predicted by well-posted ones,
would never take place. While here his
way of living was of the most rcgularand
Then Jack suddenly disappeared. It
was said he had gone West to play the
races, or something of the sort. Afterward
it was found that lie was at Mount Clem
ents, Mich., going through a regular and
rigid course of sprouts, but the stories that
his fighting dajs were overstill kept find
ing their way into the newspapers on what
appeared to be good authority.
Of course, the3e reports of Jack's unfit
nets for further ring work filled the half
dozen or more would be light-weight cham
pions with a burning desire to fight him.
With tbe now heavy-weight cbampion'ssuc
cess In whipping "has beens" before them.
Kid Lavlgnv, the Mlchlgandcr; Grlffo, the
Australian, and Valentine, the Englishman,
have been loading the newspapers with chal
lenges to fight McAuliffe, and apparently
there is money behind all of them.
And now that these aspiring pugilistic
buds and their backers, all of whom have
been making more or less capital out of
their alleged consuming desire to gel at Mc
Auliffe, have arrived at the ioint where
they will have to come forward with their
money and fight, or make a clean, unadul
terated flunk. Jack emerges from obscurity
with an able body, clear head, good hands
and $20,000 at his back that says he can
whip any man of his weight on earth. It
looks a little bit as though "Honest John"
and bis sndicale bad been working the
Reports from the West are to the effect
that the railroads that have been expecting
to make a good thing of. the Dallas tailing
carnival, and that luie got into a rquabhle
over rates, are still at loggerheads, and that
there now eeeins to be little chance of their
settling their differences. This will not be
unpleasant news to Northern and Eastern
sports, for those who attend the fights will
in all probability get to Dallas and back
for about one halt what it, would have cost
them if the roads had continued. peaceful.
Kid McCoy, who has lieen cutting some
thing of a swath in pugilistic affairs for
several years, but who seems to think
that his recent defeat of Dick Moore was
the greatest event of his life. Is now ready,
lie says, to meet any middleweight in the
business for from $2,G0O to $5,000 a side.
What a picnic this would be for Fitzsim
nions If be didn't have the Corbctt affair
Johnny Orlffin lias been matched to
box Australian Billy Murphy twenty rounds
at Louisville the latter part of this month.
Their match means a good deal for both of
these famous little men. To Grifrin de
feat means pugilistic obscurity, while to
Murphy victory means another go with
A special dispatch from Dallas to a St.
Louis paper says that Dan Stewart and
others interested in the coming boxing
carnival in that city are apparently ner
vous over private advices they have re
ceived concerning Corbett's condition and
movements, and that they have been mak
ing anxious Inquiries as to their truth. In
ans wer to a message sent by Stewart, Brady
is said to have wired that Corbctt had
"trained consistently for six weeks," and
that he was in "thorough pugilistic condi
tion." If Brady sent such a dispatch as
this It is not surprising that the Dallas
people are dubious.
In. Chicago paper, commenting on the re
ports that are flying around, says that
"Corbett's movements lend color to the
growing suspicion that he is not sincere In
his intention to meet Fltzshnmons, and that
his apparent carelessness of consequences
is doing more to destroy public f alt li in the
ability of the. Florida Athletic Club to bring
off the fight at Dallas or anywhere else
than the threats of interference on the part
of the authorities. Corbctt has lost thou
sands of his most ardent admirers through
his matrimonial mix-up, and It may be that
that is preying upon his mind."
Bradley and Downer, tbe two English
sprinters, have a great plan for managing
themselves In the heat. Their idea is to
get' Into a Turkish bath and get so. hut
that you cannot .possibly get any hotter;
then you are bound to get cool some time
afterward. A reaction, they assert. Is In

(Special to the Times.)
New York, Sept. 16. Racing at Sheeps

horsemen have now turned to Brighton
The card offered to-day is not a thrill

beach class, with a sprinkling of the
It is said at the Brighton track that Byron
McClelland has declined Mr. Belmont's
offer to train Henry of N.uurre and oilier
horses that he Intended to send to England,
and tbe chances are that Mr. Belmont will
not race acrosjlbe water next year.
Margrotie, his Derby candidate, docs not
seem to be within many pounds of Derby
form, and before sending Henry of Xavarrc
abroad to compete wllh Hie horses of Eng
land over two mllesand upward, with from
130 to 140 pounds on bis back he ought
to demonstrate his ability to give our best
horses at least twenty pounds and a beat
lug at a mile and a half. If he cannot do
this his chances for defeating the best horsey
lit England at weight for age would not
be very rosy.
Just what Requital would do at weight
for age with the best horses in England
Is an Interesting problem, and, as Mr. I
Belmont is likely to own him before long,
he may send him oer, as he sites etery
promise of developing into an etcn better J
horse as a three-year-old than what
he has been at two.
Myron McIIenry Is again out with the
declaration that John R. Gentry Is the
fastest harness horse in the world, and
says he will surely go a mile in twu minutes
before the snow files. Gentry will have to
chop many tcconds off anything he has
yet done this year to fulfill McIIenry's
I re diction.
Mr. Altbouse Is gettirg his speedy trotter

that he will bet $10,000 that AuglcD. and
Josle B. can beat the world's team pacing

2:12 1-4 at Providence in 1892.

with the belief that she can beat Requital

O'KOUHKB CALLS KELLY.
Will Mnt ell Joe Walcott Against Jack
McAuilffe tor $10,000 a Side.
(Special to The Times.)
New York, Sept. 16. "Honest" John
Kelly's offer to match Jack McAuliffe
against any man in the world has not got
cold, but it has already been accepted by
Tom O'Rourke on behalf of Joe Walcott.
O'Rourke in his reply to Kelly is unus
ually mild, but as ho is known to be no
bluffer in righting matters his acceptance
of the McAuliffe challenge is believed to
be entirely sincere.
"I have always," said O'Rourke, "re
trained in any of my challenges from includ
ing Jack McAuliffe, as I supposed lie had
given up the business onaccountofhlsbrok
en arm. In reading your challenge, how
ever, on behalf of McAuliffe, to any
lightweight, or anybody at 135 pounds, I
will accept, on behalf of Joe Walcott, at
133 or 135 pounds, for $10,000 aside." .
That McAuliffe will notice this challenge Is
not at all likely. He has always drawn the
color Hue, and will undoubtedly do so In
this case. Even If Walcott was a' "good
thing," and it meant only putting up his
hands in the ring against the colored tighter
to get the $10,000, McAuliffe, pinched
as be is for the ready, would hesitate.
But Walcott Is not a "good thing" for
MoAul If f e, " nor. Indeed, for any man
.within twenty -pounds or his weight to
tackle. For the champion, with hands
as poor as his are to-day, to touch Walcott's
game would simply mean suicide.

Mercer and Anderxon WIlTAgnlu Try
Ttielr Curves Against tbe Hard-
Jllttlng Brooklyn Team.
To-day the Brooklyn team will meet the
Senators at National Park for another
double-header. The first game w-as called
at 2 o'clock.
Mercer wijl pitch the first game and
Anderson the second. It Mercer puts up
any such game with theBridegrooms to-day
os be gave them on Friday, his work will
surely win and It will be well- worth seeing.
Varney Anderson also pitched winning
ball against the Grooms on Friday, holding
them down to six hits, and if he Is as,
good to-day, he will come very close lo
giving them another beating.
Including the games to-day, the Senators
have but thirteen games to play to wind
up their year's work. There are four with
Brooklyn to-day, to-morrow and Wednes
day. Thursday. Frldav and Saturday they
play In Philadelphia. On Monday, Tues
day and Wednesday of next week they

Bostons come for three games.
The fight between the Senators and the
Browns for tenth place Is about as inter

Senators gained a good lead on the Browns,
their percentage being .330 against .310,
but the two defeats the home team got on
Saturday threw them back to. 325, but tbe
defeats of the Browns by Cleveland yester
day put them back to .305, leaving the
Senators where they were on Frdaiy, with
a margin of twenty points. The chances,
however, would seem to be against their
holding the. tenth placo at the finish, for
the home men have strong Eastern teams
to deal with right along, while the Browns
from this time on havesomeof the weakest
of the Westerners to meet.
Chicago and New York keep bangingaway
at each other for seventh place. Chicago
holds It to-day.
Stafford is to be let loose by the New
