Philadelphia, Sept. 20. Cvcllng circles
have been agitated for some time past
over the fate of Messrs. Titus, Cabanne
nnd Murph. the class B racing men who
are being trle-d bv the racing board on
(.barges of crooked racing at a, rt cent race
meet at St. Louis.
t Is now learned that the men have In en
voted guilty by three membe-rs of the
board. Regarding the punishment of the
men. Chairman Gideon wid it wou'd be
suspi nslon, but for how long a period he
would not fay. It will probablj lie for
sl monthi"o-.i jear.
The men cannot be put into professional
raee. af the league controls that class
now. and men accused or crooked riding,
as these men are, cannot start in any class.
Chairman Gideon slated that A. G. hpald-Ing-,
president or the cycle txiarel of trade,
had aked ror a public trial for Titus and
Cabanne. who are emplojed by him, but
It would not be granted, as all the rce-ulre-ments
or the racing rules had been com
piled with, and, furthermore, there vvas
no precedent for a public trial.
"So Corbett is coming to Washington to
plav handball," said Billy Woods to a Times
man yestcrelay. "I'll put him on a tr.-nk

go out to the baseball grounds and box him
four rounds. People don't-care anything
about seeing Jim play ball. He's no ball
player. He'naboxer. My scheme willdraw
more people than his." There's in doubt
that Woods is right, but Corbut has made
a contract with some enterprising Wash
ingtonlans to play ball, and he will, or
course, live up to it.

Everybody Dissatisfied With the
Herbert Mnlr to Head A not her SyndU
cntt" to Build a Yacht tb Down
London, Sept. 20. The Yachting World,
inanartlcleon the jachting situation, sajs;
"The fiasco at New York seems to have
whetted cupidity for possession of the
cup to an extraordinary degree- Lord
Uunravcn's jaeht has not even started
homeward before another challenge is is
sued and accepted.
"This Is certainly a matter for con
gratulation, and stultifies in a practical
manner the absurd comments upon the
Impression said to be produced upon BrltUh
jaehtsmen over the last contest.
"Matches tietween English and Ameri
can clubs should be greatly encouraged
as such, but Imbuing them with interna
tional importabce is Just as absurd as to
seek for political motives in the lord
majors visit to Paris."
The Yachting World also prints the fol
lowing note from a well known Colonial
"I know that I am expressing the
feelings of many thousands or English
men at home and abroad when I say that
the America's cup should be broughtback
to the old country. I am prepared to form
a syndicate to build a yacht to be called
vVe-stralla, to bring the cup back to old
England and to subscribe JL500.

The Yachting World, commenting on

Mr. Molr, wiio is very much in earnest,

offers to subscribe, ranging from 00 to

been promised over 30,000 lor the pur
pose of challenging for the cup.
"Mr. Molr's idea ti to build a boat on lines

GENERAL SPOltTINO NOTES.
Jackon, one of the best players in the
Chicago Athletic Association Toolbar! team,
has entered Cornell and will lie a member

to be the champion Greco Roman wrestler
of the world, says he is anxious to accept

latter has steered clear of Wlttmer, here
tofore, but on Wiltmer's announcing that
he had quit the wrestling business. Rober
at once began talking about a match with
him. There has been bad blood betweeu
the two men Tor two or three years.
Wlttmer says he will let Rober set the
amount or mouey to be contested for.
The performance of the young man Wal
ter FoEter. in riding a bicycle a full half
nule In forty-eight seconds seems almost In
credible, though it is vouched for by repu
table people at San Francisco. John S.
Johnson's record for the world was fifty
two and a half seconds. That was thought
to be beond beating. Last Thursday
voting Foster rode a half mile In firty sec
onds even, and the next day, with a flying
start and paced by a quad, he chopped the
time to forty-eight seconds flat. The fast

The American bowling congrcES, which
met in New York a few days ago. thor
oughly overhauled every rule. appertaining
to the game of tenpins, and some radical
changes were made. That of rule nine is
probably the most important. It changes
the game from three balls to each frame
to two balls, and in no way interferes with
the present method or scoring.
Cricket in Baltimore has taken a spurt
this year, and there is a better team at
Mount Washington than ever before in the
history or the club. Young H. B. Cole has
developed into a first-class batsman, and
the Malllnckrodts are also doing good work.
It had been arranged for the English team
to play there, but as the Philadelphia ar
rangements, which provide that each game
should be played to a finish, even if lasting
four or five days, might have Interfered
with the dates allotted them, they had to
declare tbc negotiations off.

Philadelphia, Bept. 26. The opening
game of the University of Pennsylvania
football team, which was to be played

Otth didn't win his game against the

It. and he has a clean score of something
like a dozen wins.
Arthur Irwin Inadvertently remarked
at Baltimore on Monday that he thought
the Orioles would win the pennant. Now
the whole Western contingent has him
down as playing into Baltimore's bauds.
Anson will have twenty Tour players
to begin work with next jear ten pitch
ers, three catchers, seven intlelders and
rour outrielders and still he is out Tor
Phlladelphli won twelve straight games
and then fell down before the Colonels.
Brooklyn had twelve successive v lctorie-s to
her credit, when she. too, rcll berore the
Keniucklans. Baltimore made rourtcc1!!
straight wins and then .Buck Ewltig and
his braves rrom Cincinnati .tripped, then,
up, and the Ewing men were knocked down
by Philadelphia alter they had won ten.
Even the staid people over in Quakerdom
are suspicious atiout the pennant race:
"When eleven men steal bases on Clem
ents, and even an ice-wagon runner like
Robinson purloins second and thin, it
looks as though either Clements was out
of condition, or that the Phillies would
rather see Baltimore win," savs a Phila
delphia exchange. As to Irwin saying,
"the Orioles will win the pennant." his
team is certainly doing nothing to keep
them out of it.

The reve .t efforts of Tebeau to have the
last games between his team and the Col
onels t mastered from Louisville to Cleve
land, has brought out some "facts tliat are
quite Interesting. Tebeau claimed that his
only reason for wanting the games played in
Clevelaud was that" Cleveland was by far
the better ball town and that both clubs
would be benefited by the change. Louis
ville refused to agree to the transfer, and
sent back with their refusal a transcript
of the records, which show that the Louis
ville club has payed tho" Cleveland club
nearly three times as much meiney for at
tendance receipts as was "pa id' the Louis
ville club by the Cleveland club. Here are
the amounts the visiting clubs received
from each other tills season. .The Amounts
show conclusively which city Js drawing
the largest crowds:
It is now predicted that If Anson's
pitchers turn out all right the old man vvIl

New York. Sept. 26. The trouble be
tween Bob Fitzsimmons and Emanuel
Friend is or the kind that may at any
moment put an end to the affair at Dallas.
When Fitzsimmons knocked out and
killed Con Riordan at Syracuse, Friend
was the rirst man to come to the fighter's
assistance, even though he knew Fitz
simmons had no inonej to pay Tor prores
sion.il services. Again, when Bob could
not raise the necessary $5,010 to post as
part or his side bet hi his right with Cor
bett, Mr. Friend came to his aid and raised
the mouey Tor him.
Now Fitzsimmons has turned on Frlerd,
refuses to accept his advice, and through,
Martin Julian, his brothcr-in law man
ager, has told Friend that he could pull
down the ?5,0CO advance any time ho
"Don't think ror a minute," said Mr.
Friend, "that Fm going to lose my $D,000.
I don't, however, want lo take extreme
measures, but -I can go over and draw
down my J5.0CO whenever I want to. I
think I shall do it. too."
Should Mr. Friend do this, Fitzsimmons
may have to hustle e ry hard to get $5 ,01)0
together, and uu'es Corbett should agree
to fight without a side bet, the Dallas mill
will have to be postponed.
It is not the first time that Fitz. has
broken with his friends in money matters,
nnd this time the break looks serious.
Mr. Friend may attach the whole stake
money so as to get the money which Flu.
pwes him ror professional service.
