THE WESTERN WEEKLY 15 I
Help I Help! The White Wings have hit the toboggan and are
going downward at a gait that is simply astonishing, while the "luck"
of Dad Gimlin's Lobsters is just the same as it always has been.
Can't some one head them off? Lumley is tired of the job, and it's
doughnuts to dollars that Rogers finds he is up against a harder game
than he bargained for. The fans of Salt Lake are wondering, "How
long, oh, Lord! how long, until Salt Lake has a pennant-winning
team?" The season isn't over yet? No. but it's rather late to think
about heading off that hated Ogden bunch, unless the Salt Lake team
begins to hit the horsehidc and make runs instead of errors. Get into
the game, boys. No, this is not a knock, but simply a plea for a little
faster ball than the White Wings have been dishing up. They can
play the game if they will only come out of that trance.
Jackie Clarke set a new record mark for the half-mile out at the
Saltair track "Sunday night, going the distance in :50 2-5, a gait that
will hardly be equaled for some time to come, as conditions were fa
Gf vorablc for the speedy little Australian in every way.
The tennis tournament is on in this city, being the fourth annual
meeting of the tennis experts of the inter-mountain section, play be
ginning on Monday. There were fifty-two entries in the men's sin
gles alone, and there has been much interest manifested in all the
There will be something doing in the swimming line next Sat
urday, on the occasion of the Y. M. 0. A. tournament, when H. V.
Altree, the crack long-distance swimmer, will attempt to lower the
state record for one mile. Altree has covered the distance in 34 1-2
minutes and expects to do even better on Saturday.
Twenty thousand people saw Tommy Burns, champion heavy
weight pugilist, administer the knockout drops to Australian Bill
Squires at Sydney on Monday, the end coming in the thirteenth
round. Squires showed up better than in any of his previous fights,
probably because he was up against a less classy fighter than the
pugs he tackled in America. The dispatches announce that the fight
was a fast one, Squires being the aggressor in the opening rounds.
He couldn't stand the pace, however, and was being counted out when
his seconds threw up the sponge in the unlucky thirteenth. Burns
was a 6 to 1 favorite in the betting at the ringside.
Nevada's fast horses will be entered at the race meet to be held
at Reno on September 28, 29 and 30, when purses amounting to
$1,200 will be hung up by the Elko Jockey club.
Fishing parties returning from trips to Provo and Duchesne
rivers and the Strawberry, on the reservation, declare that dynamiters
have made fishing a joke. Dead fish can be seen floating along these
rivers at any time and the finnv tribe is rapidly being destroyed by
' these ruthless pot hunters, who evidently have not an ounce of
sporting blood. Tf there were a few men like Bill Bingley in that
part of the state it would be a godsend to the disciples of Tsaak
Forty-four harness horses were entered in the great harness
event of the year, the American trotting Derby, at Readville, Mass.,
on last Tuesday, the winner pulling down a purse of $50,000.
That Sir Thomas Lipton is a dead game sport and has unbounded
admiration for American sportsmen is evidenced by the fact that
he sent $300 to the fund for welcoming home the American team of
the Olympic athletes.
In the archers tournament at Chicago of the National Archers
association, C. S. Cosgrove of Atchison, Kansas, won first place, with
l grand total of 619. Mary Williams, a 19-year-old Chicago girl, won
the woman's handicap, with a total of 510 points. Chicago was se-
w lectcd as the meeting place for next year.
Local gossip has it that McFarland and Clarke have dissolved
partnership and that in future Mac will not do the "donkey act" for
the Australian. If this is true, Mayer may have a better chance to
head Clarke in future, as it is an undoubted fact that a large pei
centage of Clarke's victories have been due to the fact that Mac pulled
him to within sprinting distance of the finish.
American Fork has a few sports of the right kind, and they were
treated to an interesting event one night last week, when a couple
of Utah boxers were matched for the gate receipts and a small side
bet. The scrappers were Joe Clark of Lehi and Nephi Gledhill of
American Fork. Clark getting the worst of the argument, which
lasted six fast rounds, and the short end of the purse.

s country and will make a tour of the states if the weather and the
game nut up by their opponents doesn't prove too warm for them.
Miss Elaine Golding. champion woman swimmer of America,
successfully defended her title last week, when she defeated three
other fast women swimmers in a three-mile race across the Hudson
river, her time being one hour and forty-five minutes. She didn't I
have any time to lose, however, as one of the other ladies finished I
just one minute behind her. I
