Aquatic Torcbllglit Parade.
The cnUiuPlaEm over the Potomac River
regatta Is growing each day, and this is
evidenced more than anything else by
the larce numbers ol visitors to the feveral
boat-houses and other points of vantage
to see tho crews in practice. These visitors
include many ladles and their eicorto.
At about thiB time each year the "balcony
oarsmon" crawl out of their hiding places
and come and add dignity to the gathering,
&t the same time telling and rehashing
tho same "old, eld story," how "wo
used to do it when rowing."
It would seem from present indications
that the regatta cannot but bo a success,
and nothing less than an all-day rain on
August 24 will lessen the fever heat the
coming regatta has brought about in local
The crews are taking lots of practice
and showing great improvement. In ceveral
instances the final personnel of crews
has not been decided upon, and many of tho
oarsmen are on tho "anxious seat," for its

THE JOINT CLUB EXCUIIBION.
Indications point to a big success for the
joint club excursion to be given to ilarthall
Hall on the 27th instant.
If all the inemltors of these clubs will
take hold at once and dlspo&e of tickets
the affair would be a big success. Tickets
will not cell themscrles, and it will not
do to wait and sec irhat this or that club
does. All must get right down to "work,
and hustle and sell all tho tickets on hand,
and have more printed, and make it neces
sary to have an additional boat for that
eveuing. Let' get together.
It is suggested that each member inter
est some of his fair friends in the matter,
and have them get together, and with
their escorts form parties for the trip, and
thus dispose of more tickets than can or
dinarily be sold by a committee or indi
viduals, however hard these latter may
"While all this Is eolng on it would seem
only natural to see the sub-committee
n subscriptions wake up out of its slumbers
aud proceed to caU on those who might
cbuscrlbe, and thus secure every dollar
needed. It iias been dode before and can
be done again, and the only thmg to do now
is to get at it at once.
Depending upon the excursion only is
by no means the proper thing. This should
bo incidental to tho grand total raised
ior the regatta fund.
Let the committee show Its worth and
ability by getting down to tic real object
of its appointment.
AQUATIC TORCHLIGHT PARADH.
As one of the great features leading up
to the local regatta, it has been agreed by
the regatta, committee to write to the
three clubs to Joiu in a. grand torchlight
nd lantern parade on the river on soma
eveuing previous to Regatta day. The
Intention is to have each club put out all
its bo&t, properly manned and lavishly
decorated by lantern and torches, and
pass In review up and down beforo the
Tut lioveltr at tho nfi&lr will tend t
iraw thou&ards of persons to the boat
luuses aud rier banks, and it will serve
is an object lesson to show what a fleet
it boats tho clubs own. It wUl doubt--ss
also serve to revive public interest
a rowing, tho greatest of all amateur
sports. The date and particulars have
not beenfixed. Thlswillbedoueatameet

ECRANTOX PRESS CLUB REGATTA.
One of the most enterprising of the youn
ger boating organizations anywhere to be
found is the Scranton Press Club, of Scran
ton, Pa. It gives its third annual re
gatta at Lake Ariel on September 7, Penn
sy's Labor Daj. It promises to bo at least
as good as the former excellent affairs,
and will no doubt havo a large number of
Gold medals will be given in the single
sculls and in the intermediate and senior
fours and gigs silver waro will go to the
winners. To the club winning the senior
four a handsomo cut-glass punch bowl
will bo presented. Entries close Septem
COLUMBIA ATHLETIC CLUB.
There are so many rowing men to choose
from in the Columbia Athletic Club that
Capt. Baker finds it difficult to settle
upon the make-up of his various crews.
It is very encouraging to see the large num
ber of men who daily take practice in the
shells from this house.
The light-weight four, which has been
doing hard work and is getting into shape,
Is composed or ilagee, stroke; Sefton, 3;
Parsons, 2, and Eider, bow. Just aB It
is about bettling down a change is neces
sitated on account of Sefton, who starts
for California to-morrow on a business
trip. Either Midge Boss or Lunsford will
fill the seat.
The senior four is taking regular prac
tice, but so many changes have been made
In the crew that the men have not gotten
down to good form, but will no doubt
during the week get Jnto shape. Upon
the return of Boyle from Coloniaal Beach
he will be given a Beat in the senior
four, which will then row Eaton, stroke;
Mann, 3; Boyle, 2, and Bluut, bow. Junior
men have been filling No. 2 seat during
the week, and have thus had the benefit
of good rowing, and the experience will
be valuable to them.
The Junior eight has not as yet been
definitely decided upon, but has been
rowing for the most part with Clarke,
stroke; Carter, 7; Shields, 6; Monney, 6;
Bewdney, 4; Stewart, 3; Jacquette, 2, and
Craig, bow. One or two changes are con
templated in this crew.
Hecox has been doing good work in
the crews, and is showing great improve
ment this season. Walsh Is rowing in
Wells and Coburn are in good shape
and holding their side up in every crew
they are placed in.
Moar does not take much practice in
his single. It was hoped he would repre
sent the club in singles in the regatta, whore
he would have a good show to win.
Adam Johnson and Millstead are in
training for the A. A. U. championship of
the Atlantic division , to beheld in Baltimoro
In September, the former in tho shot and
hammer events and the latter In the 100
Capt. Baker is working hard to get his
crews in shape, and sets a good example
to his men. He goes out to coach two or
three crews each day.
POTOMAC BOAT CLUB.
Tho Junior eight-oared crew of the Poto
mac Boat Club promises to be a very strong
one. The men , who are, for the most part,
novices, are fast acquiring form, and tho
speed testa will come later.
With Warden as coxswain, the crew I
gaining confidence in itself and showing
daily improvement. The crew now rows
Joe Oliver, stroke; Roulette, 7; Archer, 6;
Bauby, B; Gallagher, 4; Cockerille, 3;
Gomley, 2; O. Ball, 1.
A Junior four, composed of Oliver, Rou
lette, Archer, and CockorlUe, is working
togother. It is possible that George Von Da
chonhauscn trill fill the bow seat should
it bo found necessary to mako a change,
and much improve its chances. Georgo
makes a good, heady bow man.
Cjpt. Offloy has a strong lightweight
four m contemplation, and it will beputout
in a day or two. It will be made up from
among C. Oliver, George and Alex. Von
Dncbeuhousen, Flynn, Frank Ball and
Joe Oliver, who has been 111 for several
days, is again rilling tho stroke seat In
the "light," aud doing good work.
Numerous pleasure parties depart from
the houte each fair eveuing, but are fre
quently caught in the rain before making
the Potomar up-river landing. In such cases
tho preparation of lunches with beefsteak
and onions Is interfered with.
Several members of the Potomac Rod and
Gun Club left jestcrday for their fibbing
grounds, at the lowlands, near Sycamore
Island. They expect to make a heavy catch
of bass and other things. The party consists
of Secretary Mcrritt, Rohrer, Maurice,
Nolan and Brown.
ANALOSTAN BOAT CLUB.
Several changes have beue mado in the
Junior "eight" of the Analostan'Boat Club,
and the crew is cow seated -with Taylor,
stroke; Ludlum, 7; Ryan, 6; Wilson, B;
Clemous,4;Henjoy,3;Hlne, 2, and Grimes,
bow. The change has brought about an
improvement in form and speed, and the
crew, with Stearns as coxBwaln, will make
The light-weight four, rowing Stearns,
bow; Fair, 2; Hine, 3; and Moore, stroke,
are getting into great shape, adding much
speed daily, and will no doubt mako it
lively for all comers. Fair and Hlno are
new men, but they show considerable form,
and at the present rate of improvement will
make valuable men I n the boat.
The crew for tho senior four event,
which is , by the way, an Intermediate crew,
has been compelled to lay off owing to tho
indisposition of Mills, who teems to have
had too much work, and Capt. Moore rightly
gives him a rest, from which hotter results
are sure to follow.
There is a likelihood of the senior four
doubling up with tho Junior four and form
ing an Intermediate eight for the regatta.
It -would make a strong combination.
The junior four is showing considerable
Bpecd and moving In good form. The crew
Is well matched in height and weight, and
is also good looking. It only lacks experi
ence, which it ought to get by regatta day.
It promises to equal the strong Benior crew
of last year. The boat now carries Taylor,
stroke; Ludlum, 3; Ryan, 2, and Hensey,
The "gas plpe,"-fouri.composed of Mc
Coy, stroke;- Oliver, 3; Torberl, 2, and
Lewis, bow, is working-regularly, and pro
poses to make time tests with the regular
juniors and lightweights to earn for them
Belves the honor of being entered in their
respective places in the regatta. The
crow has been together some time and
hopes to make it uncomfortable for the
other crews. It h a corker.
Lieut, Beiinex has returned from a trip to
Philadelphia, where he reports there is con
siderable interest in our regatta, and indi
cations are good for numerous entries from
Fischer's valuable services In the coach's
seat, and everywhere for that matter, will i
be greatly missed, as he will shortly bo j

CARROLL INSTITUTE ATHLETICS.
If the weather Is not too "warm at the time
Prof. Maurice Joyce will opon the gymna
sium classes of Carroll Instituto on or
about September 1 The prospects, he says,
are good for a vory active season, and with
a number of good new members on hand
he hopes to make instituto athletics promi

Many prophecies have been made la th
past few months about McAuiiffe whthar
he would or would not be seen in the rlnjf
again. Some have held that he would,
others that he would not. Some time ago
a horseman -who has staked many dol
lars on McAuiiffe, who is very friendly
with him, and who probably knows as mucb,
about his condition as anybody, told
the writer that: in his opinion Jack would
never fight again. Dispatches publlihed
within the past few days make good the
It may be true that McAuiiffe will novoS
fight again as a light-weight. When fc
wa3 Jn Washington a few weeks ago h
certainly did not look like a man who could
get down to the light-weight limit. H
might move up among the welter-weight
with Eyau, Smith and the rest of them,
but there he would he sure to get Jnto
trouble, for he would hardly prove the
welter-weight that he has proven to be th
light-weight. He has lived wrong for that
Assuming that McAuiiffe goes out ot th
fighting business for good, and it aeeml
to be the impression that he will, ha will
go out as no fighter in any class has goa
out for many a year an unbeaten cham
pion. McAuIIffels now about thirty years
old. He began his pugilistic career -whea
ha was about eighteen. s
HIS GREAT BATTLES. v
boxing, McAuiiffe could find no equal.
In the professional field hehas beenscarcely
less successful. He has fought every really
good man in his class in this country, as&
he has beaten them all. His most sot&bls
battles with boxers here were those wltSi
Jimmy Carroll and Billy Meyer. Barrinj
Jack, Carroll and Meyer were the beat
lightweights the country has hid In years.
Both are out of the ring now. Carroll is
running a saloon In the city of Mexico, ac4
Meyer has a cigar store In Chicago.
Carroll, although ten years older than
McAuiiffe, fought Jack one of the hardest
battles of his life. IttookpIaceinSanFran
Cisco about four years ago. It was a tcs
up for forty-sfac rounds of rattling flghtinjr,
as to which could win, but in the forty
seventh, when both men were so tired tha.
they could hardly keep to their feet, Jac3
got in a feeble but lucky blow that topple
McAuliffe's battle with Meyer at Norti
Judson, Ind., was another narrow ecap
for him. "The Cyclone" fought him to a
standstill for more than fifty rounds, ami
then both men began working for a draw,
whichtheygotaftera dozen ormore rounds
of fiddling hadi been added to tho fifty
rounds of fighting. This battle created
more interest than any other one that Mc
Auiiffe ever engaged in. Ic was the East
against the West, and an Immense amounj
of money was engaged on the result.
IT RATTLED METER.
Meyer contends to this day that the only
thing that kept him from beating McAullffs
in that fight was the big amount e money
that had been bet on him. It was said
at the time of the battle that peopls
at Meyer's home, Streator, IlL, mart
gaged house, mules, carts, wagon sand cat
tie, and that one man mortgaged his horns
to get money to bet that Billy would win.
Meyer told the writer that these things
had come to his ears , and that they were la
mind every minute during the more thaa
four houra that heand Jack werein the ring ,
and that his wish to make sure ot at leas
saving his people their money kept him
from fighting as he would have Toughs
under other circumstances. McAuiiffe
defeated Meyer afterward, but he didn't
defeattheMeyerwhomathim atNorth JuO
A fight that McAuHffe ought to hav
lost was that with English Jim Carney.
The excuse is mado for Jack, that ha
was not in proper condition. Maybe h
was not, but that was not Carney's fault.
The Englishman had Jack whipped ia
yond question, when a umb of toughs
broke down tho ring and saved hira, tea
referee calling the battle a draw. Seventr
odd rounds were fought by Jim and Jack,
and the battle was for the light-weight
championship of the world, Carney's
backers posting $2,500 against $2,000
of McAuliffe's money. The outcome ot
this fight is the only blotch on Jack's
career as a fighter, so far as giving as,
opponent a square deal is concerned.

LAST OF THE TRIO.
With the passing ot McAuiiffe the last
of the "Three Jacks" drops into oblivion,
so far as fighting goes. This trio, mads
up of Sullivan, Dempsey and McAuiiffe,
was probably the greatest the world evex
saw, taken as a combination. They wera
the warmest of friends, and always stood
by each other through thick and thin.
Each was willing to go his length for
the other, and the advice and assistance,
and good wishes of the others were always
forthcoming when any one of them had a
fighting contract on hand. When Dempsoy
went out ot tho light-weight class Mc
Auhtfc took his place. The one-time Non
pareil did not need to leave the light
weight brigade when he did. He could
have continued in it for a while longer, at
least, but be moved up a notch to givs
McAuiiffe a chance.
McAuiiffe has made a fortune at fight
ing. He has won in the neighborhood of
$100,000, and by stage engagements
has made many thousands more. His
share out ot the fight at New Orleans
with Meyer is said to have been $1T,500.
Yet McAuUffe has no money now. Ha
is broke broke flat. The reason for his
financial condition is easily given. H
has been a good fellow.
