New Tork, Sept. 15i Champion Jim
Corbett was at his training quarters at
Loch'Arbor yesterday and did some light
preparatoryworfc. He will start into
actual training Monday. He is much
annoyed that the attention of the public
had been drawn to the fact that as yet
he had not gone into training.
Fitzsimmons Is preparing to leave for
Texas, where he will continue his training.
"I want to get there as soon as possible
and get acclimated," said Fitzsimmons..
"I will leave the first of this week and
will take Charley White and Pror. Dono
van with me." x
Manager Brady says that Corbett will
go to Texas immediately after bis exhi

30Ui ot this month.
"This exhibition," said Brady, "will
give the public ample chance to see and

Mr. Augustus Schnielz, the genial man
ager of the Washington Baseball Club,
lias signed a contract with President Wag
ner, and will next season, for the third
year, lead the Senatorial aggregation on
to victory or defeat.
Schmelz signed the contract on Saturday
lat, when lie was in Philadelphia, and
thereby saved the Washington fans the
trouble of guessing who would have the
handling of the team next year.
While under the management of Gus, the
Senators will at least do as well as can bo
expected with'the resources at hand.
He made one great mistake last year
and that was in not having a full force of
sulistltutc outfielders. When a streak of
hard luck came our way and, mi' after
another, the boys were disabled, pitchers
had to bo put in to fill their places. On
several occasions as many as three of them
were plajing at one time.
COST THEM MANY GAMES.
Schmelz realized how much this mistake
cost lilm, and next year will have a full
force of substitutes at hand. So far, his
plans for next season arc somewhat vague.
He will keep the in.ike-up ot the team Just
about as it Is with the exception of the new
men who will lie signed for "sub." duty.
The new pitcher. Molesworth, who was
put in against the Quakers In the first
game last Saturday, will be given an
other whack at them when they cross
bats with the Senators the latter part of
this week. Schmelz Is confident that the
youugster has tne making of a good south
paw twirler In him and will use him stead
ily in practice until he gains some confi
dence in bis own ability.
It was asking a -good deal of the boy,
who by the way is only nineteen years old,
to go up against a strong team like the
Phillies before an audience of nearly 14,
000 people. As Molesworth said himself,
there were more people watching that
one game than lived in the town he came
The Brooklyns will lie taken on to-day for
two games, the Urst or which will begin
at 2 o'clock and the second inayed immedi
MERCEU WILL TITCII.
Mercer will be lml In the box to do the
twirling lu the first game and Anderson will
probably lie utilized in the Eecoud. In case
he should not be up to pitching a hard game
Malarkey will be uEed lu his place.
The Tans have the drubbing that the Sena
tors gave the Bridegrooms when they were
here last Triday, Tresb in their minds and
will turn out with the expectation or seeing
the thing repeated. '
The crushing defeat that wesurrercd at
the hands or the Philadelpblas will not have
much influence in keeping them away, as
the PhiUlesarc playing great ball Just about
this time nnd Iiiauv baseball folks expect to
Eee them tike a fall nut of the Champion
Baltimorcs when they meet them next Mon
day in the Monumental City.

Two weeks hence will occur the closing of
the -National League Eeuson. During tliaj
time nearly every game played will be of
vital imiwrtauce to one team or another.
Prolubly the two clubs'who will have no
difficulty to hold their own, or who need
not fear defeat are the Baltimore's and the
But fcveuty-three points divide the second
niHl ririh clubs, while from the fifth to the
ninth there is a difference of twenty five
points. Baltimore yesterday morning was
tuirtj-nlne iralntu ahead of Cleveland, and
it is not likely that last year's champions
will bo overtaken, but the Phillies have a
righting chance for second place. Theother
team that is not like to change its standing
is the distinguished Colonels.
The Eastern teams will play among them
selves and tlie-Westcrn contingent will con
fine their work leond the Alleghcnies.
Willie the Orioles are struggling not only to
maintain their lead, but tolncrcaeetbeirper
ccntage, the Washingtons will play hard to
retain tenth place, and the St. Louis will
battle desperately to overtake the Senators.
Only ten points separate the two clubs.
The New l'orks, only nine points in the
rear of Boston, and five back of Chicago,
will stoutly contest each game to land
in the first division. They are within
speaking distance of the Brooklyns, whom,
sooner than any other dub, they want to
lieat out. There is a difference of only
thirteen points between the two dubs.
MAY HAVE A CHANCE.
The Quakers will evidently continue
their rine work, and may have a chance for
a go for the Temple Cup. They will not
let up. and as they are well off for
pitchers, and their fielders all irf the pink
of condition, they will sell odds-on to give
the Spiders a clipping for second place.
In the Western division. Cleveland wilt
exert every muscle, devise schemes, bull
doze umpires, intimidate opposing players,
in order to win games and hold the chance
to secure a Temple Cup position. Pitts
burg will strive to redeem itself for the
disastrous Eastern trip, while Cincinnati
will attempt to land ahead of Anson.
The latter will keep a tight rein on'the Colts
and hntle them farther away from Ewlng's
band of Reds.
' The Browns must hold their present
position, and with a vlcwof sending the
young Senator off of round ten they will
strain every nerve. They will be backed
by a stanch lot of fans who want to have a
r.ilrly good showing.
Mack's Pirates -will continue to put
life in the game at Pittsburg with the hope
oriicttcriug tlielrposlton in the race, which
they will likely do. It looks ns though
they will bea good toutth, beating Brooklyn
During the past week there was no change
in the rirsf tout clubs. The Baltimorcs
Increased their percentage 13 points; the
Spiders dropped 7 points; the Phillies went
up 10 points, aud'the Bridegrooms lost 17
points and are now a tie with the Pltlsburgs,
whereas last Monday they were tie with the
Bostons, the latter losing 21 points and occu
pying last place, in the first division,
only 4 points ahead of Chicago.
SPURT OF THE COLTS.
The Colts made a spurt duriug the week,
gaining twenty-one polntsand golngaround
' New York and Cincinnati, the latter now
being ninth, with no chance of being
overtaken by the Senators or the St. Louis.
The Statesmen bettered their standing by
ten points, winning and losing three games.
The Browns Increased their percentage
ono point, and the Colonclelost two.
Brooklyn comes here to-day and will
play three games. The Senators will go at
them with a great deal ot confidence, as
they defeated them twice on last Friday.
On Thursday they goto Philadelphia three
games. Next Monday they will have the
Giants as opponents at National Park for
three games. Then will come the Bostons
who will practically wlnduptheseasonhere.
. Jt they can hold their own with these
teams they will probably end tho season
.in tenth place, but should they fail to make a
good showing they willflnisli where theydid
;one year ago.

racing will then be fully as good as it was
last spring when, on one or two occasions,
there were twenty three books doing busi

That high and mighty body, thestewards
of the Jockey Club, knew perfectly well
when they Issued the amnesty that it would
catch many of the owners here who thought
they could make a living on the big tracks

The game that Frank Wier attempted to
work with his "Tonoma Belle" was a cute
one and jesterday was the subject or-much
criticism. It was asserted'by many that
the price did not suit him and he 6aved him
eeir from losing a big roll.
If he did lict on the horEe, whifh is very
likely, then begot It "where the chicken got
the ax" In the worst kind of a way. It Is
not a cinch that the association did not drop
to the deception which was being practiced
and tipped Starter Cassidy off.
