Match With Gallagher—
The standing in the Twin City
handicap at li-inch balk line for a
purse of $100 at the end of the fiist
week's play at Foley's showed three
of the four players tied for first
place, Harrison.- Kleeser and Capen
each having won two games and lost
one, while Thayer has not been able
to make a single wining. The second
week's play was (transferred to the
West hotel, Minneapolis, where Har
rison and Capen opened the ball on
Monday evening last. After a good
fight, in which the St. Paul man se
cured several good runs near the
finish, the highest being fifty, be

evening. Cesser and Thayer were
the pair to do battle. Thayer's
friends looked on him as a sure win
ner, after seeing them play at Fol
ey's. In this 'they were badly dis
appointed. Their favorite never
played poorer, and lost by the good
margin of twenty-three billiards.
The third night he was pitted
against Harrison, when his play was
much faster, not enough to win,
though. Harrison beat him fifteen
billiards over the handicap, securing
a run of 73, the largest of the series,
and a splendid run tor so short a
The fourth game of the week and
the tenth of the series brought the
rival Minneapolitans 'together, and a
hard struggle ensued. It was the
West hotel against the Guaranty
Loan, and lite former .won out by ten
buttons, after an exciting finish.
The next evening brought Capen
and Thayer together for battle. The
St. Paul man had not won a game
so far, having five big goose eggs in
front if his name. Luck come to him
near the finish. When Capen had
(twenty-three to make Thayer had
thirty-six; he made them in. two inn
ings — twenty-nine and sevenwin
ning his first to the intense delight
of his St. Paul admirers. Last even
ing, when the time came to play 'the
•twelfth game at the West hotel be
tween -Harrison and Klesser, both
players were prompt on hand for the
fray. So were the two college foot
ball teams that had just concluded
their exciting tussle on the ball park.
Wisconsin and Minnesota were fight
in? it out on the billiard tables, and
occupied every one in the large room.
The noise they made was a little
greater than that ever before heard
in a billiard hall. It was impossible
to put any cheek on it, so the tourna
ment game had to be postponed un
til some time next week. The col
'&;e boys were left in full possession
for the night. The folowing table

The very extraordinary run reported
The -very extraordinary run reported
below was made in one of the series
now being played at Daly's rooms,
New York, between Champion Ives
and T. J. Gallagher, or "Gray Tom,"
the old-time newspaper scribe:
'■Frank Ives was erratic tonight,"
says a New York dispatch of Nov. 15.
"He made a wonderful run of 483 and
then only, scored 659 points in sixteen
innings. But that run not only beat
all anchor-barred ; balk-line records,
but electrified beholders. It was a
combination of difficult shots, and was
probably the greatest treat ever wit
nessed by an attendance at a billiard
match. There was scarcely a style of
shot that was not made during the
course of the run. The young Napoleon
got tied up oftener than ever before in
his career since he became a star, and
repeatedly had to extricate himself by
executing marvelous caroms. Gallagh
er played poorly until near the close
of the game.
"Ives and Gallagher will repeat their
contest beginning next Monday, for
$100 aside and a purse, to be hung up
by Daly. Ives is sore over what he
calls his bad playing, and offers to bet
$1,000 on next week's game. He also
publicly declared his readiness to back
Gallagher against any player in the
country, excepting Daly. Slosron,
Schaefer and himself. The following Is

The big Chicago and New York bill
iard corporation has declared' all Its
announced tournaments off. If it will
now follow this up by declaring all Its
contracts with professional billiard
players off, and give its customers the
benefit of the princely salaries it is
now paying experts, the time will soon
come again when every state will havo
matches and tournaments to make the
business assume proportions that it
has not seen for many years.
ICE YACHTERS ALL AGOG.
i*roseets for a Regatta on Pepin
Arc Most Promising.
Word was telegraphed from Minneap
olis to Lake City that the much dis
cussed ice yachting challenge had been
mailed. The answer came, "We are
ready," which is evidnece that the
gauntlet will be picked up by the Lake
City champions at least. Mr. Benson
is said to have purchased a complete
new set of sails for his boat, and he
expects her to be much faster when
they have been rigged than she has
ever been before. All the Lake Pepin
boats have been put in first-class trim,
as a result of the regatta talk, and
there will most likely be a regatta held
on Lake Pepin to decide which of the
boats that sail there is entitled to the
honor of competing against the cracks
of Minnetonka. The largest Ice boat
in this part of the country is under
construction at Madison, and it is sup
posed that she is to be one of the con
testants here. The dimensions of the
new boat are not known, but she has
been designed with the Idea of carrying
an Immense sail spread.

NEW YORK, Nov. 16.— special ca
ble from London to the Sun says there- j
Is another phase of the America's cup ,
controversy which will not contribute !
to any possible settlement Of Lord Dun- j
raven's scandalous charges. It has to J
do with Dunraven'G reasons for his
suspicions and his early Insistence re-
garding the marking of "the Defender's j
water line. These reasons are. it is
i stated, that the crew of the Vigilant j
! were suspected of tampering" with 'her
ballast during her racing season here;
last year in the same manner as -the j
crew of the Defender are now .accused- ■
of doing. One of Dunraven's friends, j
"who condemns him for bringing the *
present charge against the Defender,'; j
insisted today with unmistakable sin- !
cerity that there is no doubt that :tho" j
Vigilant' ballast was "jockeyed" in'-
last year's English races. No fuss wasl". ;
made about It, he said, because it was j
desired to avoid just what Dunraven
had now precipitated. -." >

Manager Quinn and Davies had' a con
versation on the subject in Pittsburg a

ST. PAUL HIGH SCHOOL
Defeats Stillwater High School on
The St. Paul and Stillwater high
schools played a game of football
at Aurora park yesterday afternoon,
resulting in a victory for the St.
..Paul kickers by a score of 24-0. A
large delegation came over with the
Prison City team, prepared to cheer
their players to victory, but after the
first two or three plays it was pain-
fully evident that something more
substantial than cheers would be
necessary to cinch a victory for Still-
water, as the team was entirely out
i classed by the St. Paul eleven, both
in individual playing and team work.
The St. Paul boys seemed to realize
their task was an easy one, and
played most indifferently through
' out the first half, scoring but one
touchdown and failing to kick the

half was somewhat more spirited,
though it became tedious through
repeated delays. At the opening of
the half, St. Paul kicked to Still
water's ten-yard line, from where
only one play was necessary to se
cure a touchdown.* Burleigh carried
the ball over the line, and Brennan.
kicked a goal. Score, 10-0. Stillwater
made the next kick-off, a few min
utes' aggressive play by St. Paul
landing the oval on their twenty
five-yard line, where it was lost on
a fumble. Stillwater attempted to
punt, but Lintner secured the ball,
scoring a touchdown easily. Bren
nan kicked a fairly difficult goal, and
the score stood 16-0. Stillwater again
kicked off. St. Paul, ejecting a little^
ginger in to their play, soon had the
leather on their opponents' five-yard
line, when Burleigh, needlessly,
added two points to the St. Paul
score by making a safety. Score,
18-0. On the following kick-off, Lint
ner carried the ball to the twenty
yard line. Several center plays then
placed the pigskin on Stillwater's
three-yard line, when Burleigh j
repeated his previous performance
and touched it down for a second
safety. Score, 20-0. Once more the
Stillwater boys kicked off, and with
but three minutes to play St. Paul
scored a touchdown, failing at goal.

STYLE OF BOWLING
SOME TALK OF TRYING THE
AMERICAN GAME OF TEN
HAS ITS ADVANTAGES.
ONE IS THAT A CONTEST IS NEV-
ER DECIDED TILL THE
SCORES OF THE LAST WEEK.
George Tub be. ling Compelled to
Leave (he City Temporarily
for Hih Health.
The article In last Sunday's
Globe relating to the advisability
of changing the St. Paul style of
bowling and counting frames to the
! modern or American game of ten
r pins with finger balls, including
! spares and strikes, as the method of
; scoring, has been the theme for con
j siderable debate among the leading
bowlers of the city during the week.
| Many of the very best of the old
I style of bowlers favor, -the new, be
: cause they think it simplifies the
j game and brings first-class bowling
i in the reach of persons of ordinary
I strength, while the old style can only
I be played well by athletes. This they
j claim would bring new blood into
i the game, and more than double its
i devotees. Besides the American way
] of counting infuses 'into every game
i played a degree of uncertainty that
i keeps up the interest to 'the very last
| frame. To illustrate, two men, equal-
ly good this way, might be playing.
When the game was two-thirds over
•one miight be fifty pins in the lead.
With the American way of counting
the hindmost man could easily win
by having a little luck. At the pres
ent way this would be impossible at
any stage. When tone player gets
fifty pins more than the other the
game is considered lost, and in con-
sequence there is no further interest
or competition to it. Therefore it
must be plain to any one that the
better and the true method is the
one that will hold the players' and
spectators' interest under all circum-
stances up to the very last frame
of the game. ? '
The famous young bowler, George
Tubbesing, it is to be regretted, is
ailing again, and has left the city
for change of air by advice of his
doctor. A few weeks ago he seemed
in a fair way to quick recovery. A
cold contracted 'brought about a
slight relapse. He is still confident
of being able to play in the tourna
men for the championship. All who
know him sincerely hope so.

Cornell Won the Ron.
ITHACA, N. V., Nov. 16.— The cross
country run between representatives of
Cornell and the University of Pennsyl
vania today resulted In a victory for
. Cornell by a score of 19 to 17, The
course was five miles.
Clubs are trumps; North leads, and
with South partner takes four out of
the five tricks.
Many a good whistlte failed to dis-
cover the pretty line of play whereby
North and South play into each other's
hands, so as to secure that extra trick
in last week's problem. . North leads -
off with club five so as to throw the
lead over to East, and regain it at the
proper time. East takes the first trick,
and then leads diamond* deuce, which *
South trumps; West discards spades,
and north throws away six of trumps!
South then leads spade five; Wes* dis-
cards clubs, and North does the same,
which gives him the last two tricks'.-'
The discarding of his six of trumps
has left the lead with South. The
management of trumps is one of the
most important as well as difficult
points of good whist play, and is the
fatal rock on which the average the-
orist goes to pieces, says the New York
herald. -' • Cavendish • recommends stu-
dents to bear in mind that "the use of
trumps is to draw the adversaries*
trumps for the bringing in of your
. long suits. With great strength in
trumps, five or more, lead them at once
to disarm your opponents "without
waiting to establish a suit."
James Clay, who was the best play-
er of his day, was noted for his skilful
handling of the trumps, and was a
great stickler for their proper use. He
was a member of parliament for thirty
years, and was as noted for his cour
teous demeanor- and even temperament
as for his sterling -qualities. In the
popular play of "Guy. Livingston," the
hero, Castlemalne, Is made to utter a
remark which was once actually made
by Clay, and Is quoted by those who
knew h'm as being the nearest ap
proach to finding fault with a partner
which the distinguished whistlte was
ever known to display. It is well
worth repeating, as Impressing a val
uable rule of whist upon the memory:
"It is computed," he said, as he looked
sorrowfully at his partner, who had
failed to brii>g out trumps at the prop-
er time, "that there are 2,861 young
Englishmen of good family and born
to brilliant prospects who are now
wandering shoeless about the conti
nent because they would not lead
trumps, havijng five!" . ".- -~-'*-:-y. .;.-.-,
The story -is better appreciated when
It is understood that Clay lived in the .
day of high play in England, when '
the rule of all clubs was to play for
five pounds a point and a bet of
twenty-five pounds on the rubber.
Probably the first question that a
player should ask' himself after glanc- i
ing at his cards Is, "Would the ex-
hausting of trumps help or weaken
my hand?" For the advantage of
holdiing the last trump, as well as the
severe consequences of leaving it In
the hands of the opponents after es
tablishing a long suit, should be well
understood before venturing to exhaust
trumps. As a matter of course, it
must be, favorable to one side or the
other, for with trumps all out long
suits become Important factors, and a*'
strength is imparted to the small
cards which they did not possess be-
fore; hence the principle of the modern
game, which turns almost entirely;
upon the bringing In of the long suits.-

Special Correspondence of the Globe.
j NEW YORK, Nov. 14.— One of the
'most unique characters to Ithe sport-
ing world 'today Is Adrian C. Anson, •
base ball player. He ', becomes espe
cially an object of prominence at this
time because he is the first main of
his profession who has been starred
in. an American play. There have
been plays written for Sullivan, Cor-
bett and other (heroes of the prize
ring, bult none for a base ball cham
pion until this season. There have
been draimas In, which 'the final cli-
max was wrought in a tracing scene,
as in "The Oounty Fair" and "The
Sporting Duchess," but Anson's
"Runaway Colt* is the first attempt
of an American playwright to use
•the scenes of a base ball game as a
medium of a comedy drama.
While Anson was rehearsing his
novel part in Hoyt's equally novel
play in New York I had a brief chat
■with him about himself as a ball
player and the decidedly ■ romantic
place he holds at 'the head of the
- ***• ■ ADRIAN C. ANSON IN 1878.
professional ibase ball column. This
'Bismarck or Gladstone of the na
tional game has been continuously
on 'the diamond for twenty-five years.
In twenty of the 'twenty-five seasons
he has given his services to the Na
tional league. Of more than 100 base
bail players who made up the teams
in 1876, the first year of the National
league, Amson alone Is left an active
player in the major profession.
Around him as 'members of- the
twelve National league 'teams are
more tihan 200 other players, every
one of whom has come into profes
sionalism since Anson became fa
mous as a, -member of the old Chicago
White Stockings in the Centennial
year. It is like looking at the sur
vivor of a pasit generation to look
at this .main as he stands amid the
ranks of the [National league play
ers. When James O'Rourke, two
years ago, dropped out of .the Na
tional league ranks, Anson was left
the "la£<t leaf on the old league tree,"
and he doesn't intend to quit the
business even now. Said he, as I
reminded him that his age was ap
proaching the haif century mark:
"They say a woman is as old as
she looks and a man is as old as he
feels. If that be true, I'm a 'little
past twenty-one. And let me assure
you it is not a bluff when I say that
paying when the" next centufy~be"
gins. A few of the ex-ball players
who dropped out of the game some
years ago, through knotholes in the
fence, watched me play back in the
seventies when they were boys. Why
are they not playing yet? Because
instead of husbanding their talents
they wasted them in careless or in
. I asked him what he did to pre
serve his playing abilities for so
long a time.
"Well, I've not burned the candle at
both ends, for one thing," he said.
"When I tell you that I have not
touched liquor of any kind during
the last twenty years, I am telling
you in generality the truth. The
only exception to that statement is
this: When I was married, my wife
was presented with a dozen bottles
of champagne. Nine of these bottles
were consumed by our guests. Of
the remaining bottles two were
opened when our eldest daughter was
born. Several weeks ago that daugh
ter celebrated the completion of her
eighteenth year, and on that joyous
occasion the remaining bottle of wine
was opened and distributed among
a large, party which gathered in hon
or of the birthday. The proportion
per head was about a teaspoonful. To
please my daughter I drank my
share. Now, that teaspoonful of
wine represents the sum total of all
the liquor I have drunk in eighteen
"And do you smoke?"
"I haven't used tobacco in any
form for eight years. I quit smoking
the moment I was convinced it was
doing me harm. Yes, I believe that
tobacco has put many good ball
players out of the business. I am
firmly convinced that it killed one
'of my players. I refer to Camp,
who died some time ago. I have seen
him sit up in his berth when called
while traveling in a sleeping car and
light a cigarette before he made a
movement to put on an article of his
clothing.* There are two members
of my present team who are slaves
to cigarettes. ' The habit will surely
take them off the diamond if not off
the earth. But they are too far gone
to be saved. You might as well try
to cdre a confirmed opium eater as
to wean them from their cigarettes."
- "How about your diet captain T' .'. -.
"I eat fearlessly and heartily at the
proper time. During the playing season
.1 seldom eat any lunoh except It be a
bowl of bread and milk. On that I can
play ball. After I corns home from the

game I enjoy my dinner and am not par-
ticular about what is placed before me.
Scores of players take money out of
their purses by inordinately pandering
to their appetites in midday or before
going on the ball field. A ball player
who will not subordinate his appetite
to his profession will get out of the
game years before he has good reasons
to do it."
"And your training? How do you
manage to keep in condition during the
winter?" - .■-■ ;' y .- %
"Oh, I don't keep in condition then. I
grow heavy. My playing weight aver-
ages about 210 pounds. During the win-
ter I gain probably twenty-five pounds.'
This winter may be an exception. It
surely will If my public work on the
stage is as trying as my work of re-
hearsal has been, for I am now, a
month or more after the end of the
playing season, ten pounds lighter than
I was at the end of September. This
'actor business' beats handball as a
trimmer of* flesh.
"Handball is one of the best mcdi-
vms to keep a base ball player in con-
dition during* the off season. I play it
a great deal. Then I am an inveterate
billiard player, and I hunt considerably
in the gunning season."
"What do you think of base ball as
It Is now played compared with what
it has been in the past?"
"Scientifically the game has improved
steadily until it seems as if it is nearer
perfection today than it has ever been.
The rules of playing have been bettered
season after season until it almost
seems that no defects remain in the
code. You see, experience has at least
in this case been a great teacher. lam
inclined to think the time has come to
let the rules rest awhile. There is now
danger that an itching desire to tinker
with them might start a retrograde |
movement." y . |
"How do the players of the present *|
compare with those of the past?" j
"We have more good players now '
than we used to have. I mean that the I
general standard is higher, much high- i
er. There Is a larger field for develop- j
ment. Clubs and minor leagues flour- j
ish all over the country until no young I
man with base ball talent need remain I
in the background. Just as the gen- |
eral education of people is better in I
the east, where school privileges are I
in easy reach, than it is in the far j
west, so we have a higher general stan- |
dard of ball players now than we had !
ten or twenty years ago. But when I j
say that I wish to emphatically add
that the stars of today do not compare '
wih the stars of other days. We have I
no more McCormlcks, Williamsons, !
Fergusons, Kellys, Ewlngs and Ross i
Barneses. There Is nothing on the '
diamond now that approaches such men [
to ability as all around players of j
their positions, but there Is more of I
an equilibrium. In the years when I
Williamson, McCormick, Kelly and \
that set were stars teams were strong
only In a few points and weak in many.
Now. if a nine has one or two weak
points the defect is considered fatal.
It reminds us of the days of Booth,
Forrest and other great dramatic stars I
who were often surrounded by indif
ferent actors as support. Now that
there are no Booths and Forrests' dra-
matic companies must be stronger as a
whole. yy*' '.*
"I consider Rusie the greatest pitcher
by odds now in active service. But he [
cannot be compared with Jim Mc- |
Cormick. In my estimation the latter |
was the greatest pitcher that ever lived. i
Williamson as an all around player i
never had an equal and maybe never
will have. Mike Kelly was the prince of
base runners. I've never seen a man
equal him In that line, and he could
get away with more sharp tricks than '
any man who ever wore a base ball •*
uniform. " We have no such second j
basemen as were Dunlap and Barnes.. !
Why, the McPhees, Reitzes, Lowes and •
Chlldses do not class at all with men ;
like Barnes, Dunlap and Farrell."./; %&\\
"How do you feel when you are |
cheered or guyed while at play after,
all your years of experience as a play- j
er, captain ?"gia@|i| : --' j
"Well, sir, a man never grows lm- 1
pervious to the pleasures of praise, and |
I like the flattery of base ball crowds j
as well as I did twenty years ago. It !
Is no use to say that I am Indifferent
to abuse or guying, though I don't
mind it so much as when I was young- I
er. Mind,, I say younger, not young,
and I want to be correctly quoted on j
that word. I get more guying in Chi- ,
cago than elsewhere. If I have a i
winning team, they think It Is no more I
than I owe them," but when we are I
losing, that Is the time they do not J
spare their Jeers and abuse. I've had
so much of that sort of thing that I'm
a little callous over It. But it worries
me because of the bad effect It has on
my younger players. While the guy-
ing Is aimed at me it hurts ,my Colts
particularly, for they take it to heart
more than I do, because they have not
had my experience with the fickleness
of base ball rooters." '"'.
Anson's theatrical contract expressly
stipulates that it shall in nowise Inter-
fere with his duties as manager and
player of the Chicago Base Ball club.
Next spring he will lay aside the bus-
kin and once more take up the bat. He
Willi at the some time begin his twenty-
first year of unbroken service In the
National league, a service which he
began when the picture that accom-
panics this article was taken. He sat
for the photographer in the spring of
1876 and . sent the . picture from whioh *
, the accompanying cut was made to |
the young lady, his fiancee, in Phila
delphia, . who is now Mrs. Anson, and
the mother of his four children. They
i were lovers then who could scarcely
jbe parted. It was his desire to be near
I her and her request that he should not
jgo away from Philadelphia which
| caused him to offer the Chicago club
1 in the spring of 1876 $1,000 to release
I him, not from a written contract, but
! from a promise to play in Chicago.
The offer was refused, and this great
bail player regarded his word of honor
more than. $1,000 and the love he had
given to his sweetheart. That love,
like his honor, has never grown dim. i
Mr. and Mrs. Anson are lovers still J
and hard to keep apart. She followed
j him on his tour around the world in ,
1 1888 and will be with him this winter j
during his - theatrical experience in j
! New York. Just how much Anson
owes to his wife for his great success
ln the ball field the world perhaps will
never know. — O. P. Caylor.

Stnrgess Recently Broke All Rec

ords by Covering Eight Miles
in un Hour.
England's -athletic prowess has re-
ceived a severe setback at the hands
of Americans this year, but she is yet
able to console herself with the thought
that she at least possesses the greatest
walker on earth In the person of W. J.
Satisfied that he could cover eight
j miles within the hour, the London A.
C. afforded him the opportunity at its
autumn meeting, .held recently at
I Stamford Bridge. A handicap was
j framed, and as a result Sturgess not
■ only completed the eight miles, but
| placed another 270 yards to his credit
i before the stipulated time had run out.
! This knocks to flinders the previous
I best amateur record of 7 miles, 1,487
I yards and 2 feet, made by H. Curtis, as
I well as Griffin's professional hour ree
l ord of 8 miles 172 yards.
I Eleven men . opposed Sturgess, and
I they were conceded plenty of start, but
I at such a clip did the champion travel
! that he was making his own pace at
J the four-mile mark. The following ta
-1 ble shows what he did:
| Distance. Mm.S ec. Distance. Mm. Sec.

4 miles ....29 13-i 8 miles ....58 56
. Sturgess Is a member of the Poly-
technic Harriers, and astonished every
one by walking H. Curtis, who had held
the championship since 1890, completely
off his legs for this year's title. In ad-
dition to the above records, Sturgess
had just previously established new
times for one, two and three miles. His
action was from start to finish perfec
tion personified, from a strictly fair
walking point of view.

Her Campaign This Year Has
i Never Been Equaled by a Four-
The Horseman believes that the great
four-year-old trotting mare Bouncer,
2:10^4, is the greatest campaigner of
her age that ever lived. - She is a racy
looking mare, with clean cut, bony
head and an exeepUonally fine set of
legs. She is a light bay, stands six-
teen hands high, and Is noticeable for
her strong shoulders and quarters, and
her unusual depth through the heart.
She Is good-headed, beautifully galted
and shows "race" In every line and
movement. Being slow to get Into her
stride, she cannot score down as fast
as most of the 2:15 trotters.
Her strong point Is her finishing ca
pacity, in which few trotters ever on
the turf can compare wdth her, and In
no Instance this year has she failed
to win the heat when she was within
two lengths of the leader at the three
quarter pole, except In one heat at
Detroit, where she made a break near-
Ing the wire. She has made but two
breaks in her races this season..
'■' Bouncer was bred by her present
owner, William Simpson, of Cuba, N.
Y. Her sire, Hummer, a son of Elec
tioneer, out of Edith Wilkes, by George
Wilkes, grandam Edith Carr (dam of
Campbell's * Electioneer, 2:17%, and
Rockefeller), by Clark Chief, was
brought when a youngster by Mr.
Simpson, and her dam, Musette, by
Mambrino Patchen, out of Ida, by Ver
mont, .wast a member of Mr. Simpson's
band of brood mares until she died last
spring. Bouncer's greatest victory was
In the Transylvania stake, Lexington,
Ky., and her total winnings amount to
$8,170. Of the eight races won by her
two were four-heat contests, two re-
quired five heats to settle and one was
the famous eight-heat contest at De
