Interesting Sporting Events at Home and Abroad.
MEMPHIS NOW THE MECCA
Sporting Men Expect to Pull
Off the Fight From
OFFICIALS ON THE LOOKOUT
Governor Clarke of Arkansas Says
the Pugilists Cannot Battle
In That State.
MKM PHI?. Tf.>-n., Oct. 14.— 1t is now
practically admitted by local sports that
the intention is to pull the Corbett-Fitz
simmnns fight off from this city. Tele
grarhic correspondence between them and
the managers of the affair has been going
on at a lively rate to-day, and one of the
agents at this end of the line admitted to a
reporter this evening that the plan was as
"The proposed arrangement is to have
trains bearing the sports who come to see
the light line up on the river front, pre
pared to moved in any directions that may
be advisable — either to Mississippi, Arkan
sas or this State. The night before the fight,
with hundreds of laborers and the material
all ready to be put in shape, the amphi
theater can be rushed into form, and the
one holding the greatest appearance of
security from interruption will be adopted
at the last moment."
The party quoted said the talk now
about Hot Springs as the point at which
the fight is to take place is merely a blind.
In view of the indications given, senti
ment is rapidly crystallizing against the
fight taking place on Tennessee soil, and
those working up the project will be
strongly warned on the subject in due
LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Oct. 14.— N0 visi
ble change has taken place here since
Saturday on the question of the proposed
Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight at Hot Springs.
When seen this afternoon Governor
Clarke authorized the statement that
he has now full charge of the
execution to the State law which makes
prize-fighting a misdemeanor and that
"an ounce of prevention is worth a pound
of cure," and therefore he, as Governor,
was going to administer the prevention be
fore the cure was needed, or else resign his
office and turn the State over to the thugs
and their cohorts.
"I am going to prevent this fight with
peaceable means if possible, and in case
this fails I shall resorl to a force that will
compel respect. The fight will not take
place at Hot Springs, nor at any other
place in the State, either on October 31
next or at any other date, while I am Gov
Although the dispatches state that Cor
bett and Fitzsimmons will be in Hot
Springs within the next day or two, the
Governor says he will cause their arrest
immediately after they enter Arkansas
territory. All parties at Hot Springs are
still hopeful that the fight will take place,
and preparations for the mill are being
Public sentiment at Hot Springs is de
cidedly in favor of the fight, as it is in fact
amon£ sporting circles all over the State.
Corbett is expected to arrive at Hot Springs
to-morrow, and a telephone conversation
with the springs this afternoon says he will
give a glove contest there Wednesday
Governor Clarke says Corbett will do
nothing of the kind, and future develop
ments will be watched with the deepest
HOT SPRINGS, Ark., Oct. 14.— The law
w,ill soon be appealed to decide whether a
contest between boxers with soft gloves is
a violation of the law. Mr. Vendig says :
We have not come to Arkansas and to
the citv of Hot Springs with any purpose
to violate ita laws. If Mr. Corbett and
Mr. Fitzsimmons cannot come to this city
to give an exhibition, as is provided for in
our articles of agreement as they now stand,
a limited nnml*r of rounds with soft
gloves, the authorized officers being em
powered to stop the exhibition if it be
comes brutal, then the exhibition will
surely not take place in Hot Springs. The
best authority at our service says there
will be no violation of the laws of the
State, but to make our case absolutely safe
the citizens' committee has engaged the
ablest representatives of the legal profes
sion in Arkansas, and they are looking
diligently into the matter" at this time.
We shall have a decision from them bv
to-morrow, and upon their advice we will
act. The matter will be brought into the
courts as Boon as we can get it
there, and bv the decision of the courts
we shall abide. The Florida Athletic
Clnb desires that if possible the
exhibition shall be given here, but if we
cannot have it here we have an absolute
guarantee of protection from three differ
ent places in Mexico, one of them just
across the Rio Grande from El Paso.
Until we know just where we stand legally
in this matter here we shall do nothing.
Thus temporarily the matter remains in
statu quo. In the meantime excitement
runs high. The small minoritv is making
itself heard. The ministers called a meet
ing at Central Methodist Church this even
ing, and quite a crowd gathered, prompted
by motives of curiosity largely.
During the progress of the meeting after
the preachers had had their say, and the
Judge had spoken and several of the
church members had inveighed, W. A.
Brady, Corbett's manager, arose and asked
if a representative of Mr. Corbett might be
permitted to speak. There were a few
murmurs of dissent,, but calls to "Speak,"
"51 peak' began to fill the room, and Brady
was permitted to talk.
Mr. Brady's talk captured the house, and
when he finished such an acclamation of
cheers and hand-clapping went up as was
never before seen or heard in that sacred
edifice, and which showed the drift of sen
timent. The church people were com
Corbett will be here Wednesday and give
an entertainment in the opera-house with
his company. All the seats are sold. Hot
Springs is alive with preparations. The
Great Eastman and Park hotels will be
opened the 20th.
AUSTIN. Tex., Oct. 14.— The Supreme
Court this morning handed down its
opinion in the cases of the Tax Collector
of Williamson and Hays counties seeking
to force the Comptroller to issue them a
prize-fight license under the law passed at
the regular session of the Legislature held
The court declined to mandamus the
Comptroller for a license on the ground
that a special session of the Legislature
recently convened nullified ali previous
laws on the subject by passing a new law
making prize-fighting a felony, and no
license can be secured.
SAN ANTONIA, Tex., Oct. 14.— After a
stay of nine days in Sa^n Antonio, Jim Cor
bett and party left to-night for Hot Springs,
where he will resume his training, unless
the position of the authorities there forces
him to make another move. Corbett did
not leave for his prospective field of battle
in the beßt'of upirits.
He stated just before his departure that
he believed the move is an unwise one, as
he has no confidence in the statements that
the fight will be pulled off at Hot Springs
and that protection is guaranteed.
"In my opinion," said he. "1 will find

STANFORD VS. BERKELEY.
Eligibility to Freshman Teams
the Subject of a Slight
Palo Alto 'Varsity Players Not
Showing the Form Requisite
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Cal., Oct.
14.— Manager Eaton of the Stanford eleven
has held an important conference with
Manager Lang of Berkeley regarding the
freshman game. It seems that there is a
snag in the proceedings, and that while
both managers desire to see a game be
tween the freshman elevens there is a dis
agreement regarding the rules governing
eligibility of players to the freshman
teams. A favorable outcome of the dis
cussion will doubtless be reached within a
week, and the game be played on the day
Berkeley will have a much heavier
freshman eleven than will Stanford. Un
less conditions change, and that speedily,
Stanford's freshman eleven is going to
have a decidedly poor show for victory.
The 'varsity candidates are practicing
diligently each evening, but the progress
of the players is far less perceptible than
at the beginning of the season. There is a
general feeling of confidence among them
that Stanford will win the next intercol
legiate match from Berkeley, but unless
the men do better work than they have
aone recently they will have a hard fight
to prevent defeat. Several of the players
express this opinion, so an improvement
is likely to soon be noted.
While Stanford will have no punter to
rival Ilansome of Berkeley it has now three
candidates for fullback who would do well
in that position. Frazier '98, Weldon '97,
and Harry Reynolds, '96, are the men, and
with proper training it will be hard to de
cide which is the better plaver, though
their style of play is entirely different.
In the game between '96 and '98 the lat
ter team protested against the placing of
Field in the line on McGuire's alleged in
jury. The umpire was supposed to have
decided the protest in favor of '98, but he
has finally announced that he will not de
cide the protest at all.
The Stanford training-table will start up
to-morrow evening, so Captain Cochran
has announced. Following are names of
those players put on the table. Their
number will be increased gradually until
shortly before the big match, when ail but
the best men will be removed: Spalding,
Pauly, Cotton, R. Smith, Campbell, Rice,
Fickert, Field, Garton, Carle, Thorsan,
Bigelow, James, Code, J. Reynolds, H.
Reynolds, Frankenheimer, Weldon, Over
acker, Plate, Mcintosh, Harrington,
Lewers, Hoibrook, Emmet, P. Smith, B.

Wherever any number of Englishmen
gather together in any part of the world
they are certain to find time to devote to
athletic sports of various kinds. No mat

which to enjoy themselves in a sensible

none of the jockeying and chicanery which
have caused so many lines of sporting to
fall into disrepute.
The English colony at Bakersfield num
bers some enthusiastic sportsmen among
its membership. Under the name of the
Kerrtr County Country Club they have an
organization which is actively engaged in
promoting the enjoyment of its own mem
bers as well as that of the community as a
whole. This club is now preparing for a
race meeting which is to come off at Ba
kersfield on November 5 and 6, and for
which a very attractive programme has
The Country Club was first organized
under the name of the British Club, on Oc
tober 1, 1893. It started with forty mem
bers, with H. G. Clifft as president and T.
H. Dudley secretary. Almost from the
start it took a prominent place in athletics.
During the year after its organization four
cricket matches were played by the club
team, with results that at once brought
the organization into prominence. One
game was at Los Angeles, where the club
beat a picked team from the south by one
inning and 80 runs. Two matches were
played with the Alameda Club, in the first
of which the bakersfield boys were de
feated, while the second resulted in a
draw. Another match with the Penryn
Club of Placer County was won by the
Bakersfield team by 75 runs. Harold
Richardson of this, place, who distin
guished himself all through the season of
1894 while playing for the Alaraeda team,
captained the home club.
A Rugby football team was also organ
ized, which was captained by A. E. Cheals,
without doubt one of the best Rugby foot
ball players in the country. One match
was played in 1894 — wiih the Nomads of
San Francisco on April 7 — and was won by
the latter by eight points, after a very ex
citing and well-conducted game.
An association football team was also
organized and was captained by D. V.
Craigie. Three matches were played dur
ing the season, the most important of
which was with the Pacific Wanderers of
San Francisco. This was won by the
home club by three goals to one.
Following are the officers of the club for
1895: President, J. Beresford Jobling; vice
president, R. G. Morrison ; secretary, T.
H.Dudley; treasurer, C. Bickerdike; cap

Another world's record was broken in
the 2:06 pace, as there developed a result

fourth moneys. Guinette won second quite
handily by finishing three times second to

stake his masterly hand had much to do
with the victory. On form Boreal was
hardly regarded in the contest, but he de

Oakland Baron and Fred Kohl fought a
battle to the half in two heats.
Kohl won two heats and Killona one
and Geers, who had been circling the track
well behind, showed up next time and out
posted Oakland Baron home in 2:16^.

he disgraced, as every inch of the
five heats was he an active contestant,
figuring in the fray as long as he re
mained in the race, torcing Fred Kohl to
earn his best record of 2:121^, and it was
the right of Fred Kohl and Oakland Baron
that gave Boreal the race. The day was
perfect, track fast, attendance large.

CentervUle'a High-School Football Team
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Cal., Oct.
14. — The Stanford freshman eleven won its
first victory over an outside team to-day,
defeating the Centerville school boys. The
score at the game's conclusion stood 28 to 0
and, as only one goal was kicked by the
Stanford fullback, it will be seen that
touchdowns were numerous. The Center
ville team played a very loose game, man
aging at intervals, however, to hold the
college players down, but soon going to
pieces again. Mass plays against Stan
ford's center were generally fruitless, so
Centerville was forced to depend on end
runs by their backs. Here, too, its team
was at a disadvantage, for the Stanford
ends and tackles prevented any long gains.
A noteworthy feature of the game was
the clever playing of Stanley Harris, one
of the Stanford backs. Four of the touch
downs were made by him alone, and he
showed up the best of anv man on the
tield. He injured his ankle during the first
half of the game, yet continued to play un
til the call of time. Plate, one of the Stan
ford halfs, and Overacker made rive gains
through the opposing rush line, and the
tackling of the former was very good.
Smith, at end, was very quick at getting
down on punts, and tackled low and hard.
The next game of the freshmen will be
with the Santa Cruz Hich School eleven
on October 26. It is not probable that a
came will be played with the Oakland
High School team.

Hugh Jones, the popular bookie, couldn't see
Tim Murphy in the last race at all, and con
cluded to take a fall out of the roan horse. He
is said to have lost over $1200 on the race, and
the very healthy-looking line back of his stand
after the race fully substantiated the fact.
The odds about Toano in the last race were
very short, and many labored under the im
pression there was going to be a watermelon
party, but the company was undoubtedly too
speedy for the old sprinter.
Timothy Murphy — Tim for short — the
roan sprinter, must have been imbibing of
the elixir of life of late. He started in a
five-furlong dash yesterday against three
very ordinary articles in the racehorse
line, yet as eood as 7 to 5 was at one time
laid against him. There were many race
goers that didn't like his chance, and that
made the odds. After a little those who
did like him put their coin in, and Tim
went to the post even money. He galloped
the five furlongs in 1 :00>£ with such ease
there is no telling how much faster he
could have gone. Major Cook, who was
heavily backed to beat him, finished 6eeond,
and Venus finished ahead of old Toono for
third money. The winner has been lacing
for years, and it wonld not be surprising if
he would some day win a Brooklyn handi
cap or a Suburban.
The day was far from a pleasant one for
racing purposes, and the attendance was
light, likewise the betting. The favorites

in front, with one exception, and that was

the latter drew away and won by four
lengths. Encino, a2sto 1 chance, headed
Easel out for second place.
The next event, a six-furlong dash, went
to the 6 to 5 favorite, Elmer F, with little

OXE MORE VICTIM.
Mrs, Oraydon Supposed to Have Been
Killed at the Outnry Hotel.
DENVER, Colo., Oct. 14.— More missing
victims of the Gumry Hotel horror may
be added to the list of dead. A Sixteenth
street jeweler has a lady's watch, left for
repairs on the day preceding the explo
sion, and the address given was "Mrs. A.
Graydon, Gumry Hotel." The watch has
remained uncalled for. The hotel regis
ter gives the name of Alexander Graydon,
Indianapolis, under date of August 12, six
days before the fire. When the lady left
the watch she stated that she was to leave
the city in a few days. Inquiries have
been sent to Indianapolis to clearfup this
matter. There has always remained a
doubt if all the victims of that disaster
had been correctly accounted for.

takes the place of the Switchmen's Mutual
Aid Association, which went bankrupt a
year and a half ago by the defalcation of
Treasurer Sims. There was a parade at 10
o'clock this morning, after which a wel
coming meeting was held at Creighton
Hall. Mayor Bemis delivered the address
of welcome, to which Grand Master D. D.
Sweeney of Jersey City responded. Regu
lar business begins to-morrow. About 200
delegates are present.
