Duckpin league, held their place but
lost a few points in the standing on
Friday evening by winning their match

out of three. The Norwich team had
two new members rolling. Kennedy and
Sturtevant, both putting down good
totals, and Kennedy being high single
for the match with 114. Kennedy's
high string came on the last and was
the deciding factor in giving Norwich
one game, after it had lost the other
two. Holdswprth's total of 265 beat

Quarters.
Stratford. Conn.. Jan. 22. About 200
specators had gathered in the training
quarters at John Bond's tonight to
witness a series of boxing bouts, the
star event, which had been promised
quietly to be a real fight, to be be
tween Johnny MeGahey of Stratford,
and Butch McNally of Bridgeport,
neither a fighter of any ability, when
Deputy Sheriff Charles E. Stagg ap
peared and warne dthe promoters that
the bouts could not be held and that
he would arrest them if any attempt
was made to start them. John Bond,
the proprietor of the place, had gone
to bed, but John Whippl eof Bridge
port, claiming to be managing the af
fair, announced that the bill was de
clared off. Sheriff Staffft said after
ward that complaint had been made to
him that a "fight" was to take place
and that no permit had been granted
by the selectmen. Many of the spec
tators had come from New Haven.

none at a price the Meriden awners

The news of Meriden's sorry experi

PRINCIPAL TIRRELL TO COACH.
Academy Boys Ensured Expert Advice
New Manager Elected.
It was announced Friday afternoon
at a meeting of the Academy baseball
team that their coach this season would
be Principal Henry A. Tirrell. This
settles in a most satisfactory manner
what guidance the Academy boys will
have on the diamond, and ensures it
being of the best, as Principal Tirrell
was catcher and captain of his team at
Wesleyan college, and admitted to be
without rival as a backstop.
Manager Beebe presented his resig
nation, which was accepted, and Leav
enwnTth, 1909. elected in his place,
polling 5 votes to 3 for Lawler, 1909.
New suits are to be secured for the

NARROW STOCK MARKET.
United State Steel Movsment Attract
ed Much Attention.
New York, Jan. 22. The narrow di
mensions of the stock market made its
principal feature still today. The
movement in United State Steel at
tracted a good deal of attention, owing
to th hopes that the usual strong sym
pathetic effect of this stack's action on
the general list would prove effective
in reviving the market. Yesterday's
2 point rise In United Btates Steel did,
in fact, have the effect of bringing in
some orders for the stock today, the
result being a spread in the price of
1-8 at the opening on an extreme ad
vance of 1-2. This1 carried it within a
shade of 55. where it hesitated owinn-
to the very large sellng orders awaiting
it at that point. At 65 the. first sale
wag of 10,000 shares, and very large
sales followed. The preferred stock
ilso advanced to 115. which is a record
price, the previous record of 114 5-8
having been made in November last.
The sinking fund bond of the corpora
tion are ruling also at about their
highest price. There was no definite
news to account for this movement.
For this reason, probably, the move
ment failed to awaken the customary
response in the general list. Some of
tne ranroaa equipment stocks showed
some sympathy. Quite a varied list of
indui rial srx'Cialties rose brisklv on
newly awakened activity, for the "most
part unexplained by anv news. In the
case of Amerieaft Sugar, the rise was
attributed to the application of the
company to have its shar-n admitted
on the regular list, a request which im
plies tne intention to publish detailed
information of earnings and financial
condtion. The requirements from an
uncovered short Interejt were suppos
ed to figure in some of these sudden
advances.
The rise In National Lead was coin
cident with another reduction in the
price of copper and a decline in silver
in the London market. News that the
Russian loan issue had been many
times oversubscribed in Paris and was
ruling at a rremium of 2 per cent, was
followed by an easing of discount rates
abroad and a reduction in the price of
gold in'London. which promised a re
laxation of the Paris demand on Lon
don for gold. The forecast of the week's
currency movement modified the New
York interest in the gold movement.
The influx of currency is on so large
a scale as to leave the problem for the
):'!iks one or nnt.ing employment for
their resources rather than of conserv
ing reserve. The excess of receipts
over shipments of currency by express
has been so heavy that the cash gain
promises to reach S10.O00.00O or up
wards. ThW state of affairs Is not
deemed of hopeful Import to the prog
ess of business activity, and price of
stocks were inclined to yield after the
publication of the cash estimates. The
result wa a show of losses at the end
of the day except In a few cases of
strength. Bonds were steady. Total
sales, par value. $5,664,000. United
Stales twos declined 1-8 per cent, on
call.

LEAGUE MEETING.
Eastern Connecticut Manager at Dan
ielson on Sunday.
Baseball in eastern Connecticut the
coming summer will get a boost in
Danielson on Sunday afternoon, when
a meeting of the league has been call
ed by President Reeves to talk over
the outlook for the season. All the
nix clubs, it is believed, will be rep
resented, and it is reported that there
will be representatives from other
places on hand looking fo ra chance
to gain admission to the league
Central Village is one of these." Last
fall President Reeves gave it out that
he was strongly inclined to run a team
in Danielson, and it is believed he ig
still of the same opinion. If this is
so. it will mean securing another man
for president, as the league's policy
has been to have the president's chair
filled by a man not Interested In a bus
iness way in any of the teams. From
the forecasts a good season is pre
dictedfor the league.
Bookmaker Arrested, Racing Stopped.
New Orleans, Jan. 22. After lasting
a week, the race meet at Suburban
park, in Jefferson parish, across the
Mississippi river from New Orleans,
was closed today, at least temporarily!
The announcement of the suspension

fourth race, shortly after John Shee
han of Memphis, a bookmaker had
been arrested on the charge of violat
ing the Locke anti-racing law. Shee
han's arrest followed a telegraphic or
der from Governor Sanders to the dis
trict attorney or Jefferson parisr.

Star Pointer's 1.59 1-4 Will Ba MaTk
For Savage' New Purchase.
Minor Heir now becomes the stable
companion of Dan Patch, 1.55 1-4, the
world's champion pacer. After Dan
became the property of Mr. Savage
which was in 1902 that gentleman
never allowed the stallion to appear in
a race, but it has noiv been announced
that these two pacing marvels will
appear against each other in exhibi
tion races during the "coming suTnmer.
It will be a wonder if Minor Heir
does not do something towards the
lowering of the world's technical un
paced records for pacers, 1.59 1-4.
It was in August. 1897, that Star
Pointer set this record at Readville,
Mass. After him no pacer crossed the
two-minute line until 1902, when Dan
Patch did so. The history of Dan's
struggles to beat 1.59 1-4, and how he
did altd didn't do so is full of curious
interest. In 1902, the- year that he
attained two-minute honors, after tak
ing a record of 1.59 1-2 at Providence,
Dan was started to beat it at Readville
and, if .'possible, to beat 1.59 1-4 as
well. He paced his mile in 1.59 1-4,
exactly, but by a mistake he had been
programmed as attempting to beat
1.59. not 1.59 1-4. Hence, under the
technical rules governing records
made against time, his performance
was a losing, not a winning one, and
he got no official credit for it.
The next year the front pacemaker
and the wind shield came in, and be
hind a runner he can follow one a
no other horse has ever shown the
ability to Dan cut his record by
gradual reductions to 1.56 1-4. The
next year he cut this to 1.56 and the
next to 1.56 1-4. The men who con
trol the official trotting organizations
ruled out the front pacemaker, and,
further, that a horse that had taken
a record behind a runner could not
thereafter make one "in the open'"
unless he (or she) beat his (or her)
record made previously In the prohibit
ed way.
This placed Dan Patch in a predica
ment. It waa made a physical impos
sibility for Dan to get a new record
of any sort. He couldn't beat 1.55 1-4
In the open, and on account of his
1.55 1-4 record net made that way, if
he went to beat his old-fas-hioned rec
ord of 1.59 1-2 and Star Pointer'
1.59 1-4, and did so this would still be
not a technical record.
. Mr. Savage, however, showed Dan's
greatness by sending the champion to
Memphis, where he paced In 1.58 in the
open, but got no credit for it.
And go Star Pointer's record still
stands. But if Minor Heir stays sound
and well and improves even the least
bit in the world, it won't be standing
a year from now. Harry Hersey, who
will train him from now on, is an
expert in training a pacer to go
against the watch, and driving one as
well. He is at least fifty pounds
lighter than Dean, also, and if all goes
well will go a mile some time during
1909 that will relegate 1.59 1-4 to has
beenism. finally and forever.
For Dan Patch Mr Savage paid
$60.000 of which, it is said, $45,000
was in cash the same amount that he
has paid for Minor Heir. As a payer
of record-breaking prices for record
breaking pacers, the Minneapolis man
certainly has no rivals. So far as is
reliably known, nobody else ever paid
half as much for any pacer as he did
for either of these.

Many a fond mother who has
brooded over the fact that her hope
ful has locks of flaming red will take
heart when she reads the resume of
athletics for 1908, and notes the fact
that the chief honors on the cinder
path this year have fallen to red
headed runners.
Who won the junior cross-country
championship at Celtic park recently,
outclassing a field of fourscore run
ners, and winning in record time?
Why, red-headed Jimmie Lee of Bos
ton. And It was Lee, too. the week
previous. who showed the athletic
funs a streak of gameness that soft
ened the heart of every man and wo
man that Baw the race. Lee ran the
whole last two miles in a condition
bordering on collapse, and flopped
over helpless the instant he realized
that he had completed the journey.
Who won the ten-mile champion
ship the very race in which Lee
showed all this grit? Why, red -headed
Jitck Eisele, from Newark, N. J. Eisele
ran the fastest ten miles since the days
of Willie Day 53 minutes and 16 sec
onds. Eisele is some game, too. It is
not so long ago that we read aSout
his running the English three milers
to a standstill at tne Olympic games
and giving the British athletic ex.-
perts the scare of their lives. And
this after having the nail torn off one
of his big toes. Eisele ran with his
foot bandaged and suffered excruciat
lng pain at every stride.
Who was the star of the distance
races at the outdoor championships
last summer? Why. red-headed Mike
Driscoll, from Yonkers, the Hill city.
Driscoll has defeated such champions
as Reilly of the Mohawks. Lee of
Boston, Bellars of the New York A.
C, Bonhag, Joyce, Daly and Collins
of Pennsylvania on the cinders, and
at the indoor championships he
thrilled the whole athletic world with
a performance of 9.28 2-5 for two
miles on the boards
When Uncle Sam needed a sprinter
to uphold his name in the 200-metre
race at London, who was it that shot
away from the mark like a streak.
and. after one of the most stirring
races or tne Olympiad, plunged
through the tape a brave three inches
behind Bobby Kerr, the pride of Can
ada? Why, that was red-headed Bob
by Cloughen of the Irish-American
A. A. Cloughen upheld the Stars and
Stripes In other countries, too. He
won the 200-metre events at interna
tional meets in Dublin, Edinburgh.
Glasgow, Malmo, Norkopping and
Stockholm all in tiptop time.
Cloughen made good on the boards,
too, by winning both the 60-yard and
75-yard indoor championships in rec
ord time.
Cornell university ha a sorrel
topped star, too. His name is Taylor,
and in another year so says Jack
Moakley he is going to show a brand
of running that will startle the whole
of athletic America. Taylor was prob
ably held back in the fall. Moakley
knew that he had a winner In Captain
Young and saved the new star for
another year. At that Taylor materi
ally aided Cornell in winning the in
tercollegiate cross-country champion
ship by racing home in fourth position
close behind Pauli, the university of
Pennsylvania champion. Taylor was
the second Cornell man to cross the
finish line.
Jim Archer, the Irish-American
sprinter, is another read-headed run
ner who is good. Of late Archer has
been off his form, but look up his rec
ord, and you will find him a junior
champion in 1906. as well as the win
ner-of many handicap In lightning
time. .
he returned to his old associates and
played with New Britain the greater
part of that season. He was sold to
Toledo of the American association,
but did not finish the season with that
team. On becoming ill Long went to
Hanover and had suffered for several
months.
Princeton 40, Yale 28.
Princeton, N. J., Jan. 22. Prince
ton closed her basketball season to
night with a victory over Yale by the
score of 40 to 28. It was the deciding
game of the series, Princeton having
defeated Yale ry the score of 34 to 12
in the first game.

DESCENDANT OF UNCAS.
Mrs. Lucy Savant Patient at New
Haven Hospital.
A New Haven exchange says: One of
the last survivors of the Perjuot Indian
tribe is Mrs. Lucy Savant, who has
been ill for the jiast week at the New
Haven hospital. Mrs. Savant is 76
year3 of age.
There are about a hundred Indians
who claim to be Pequots, but there are
a very few that do not have Mohegan
o r other blood In their veins. Uncas,
the famous Mohegan chief, was one of
Mrs. Savant's forefathers.
It may seem strange that Mrs. Sa
vant's maiden name waa Jardiniere,
but this is. due to the fact that many
Indians took the names of the Span
iards who came over on voyages of dis
covery, and this name came from one,
Joseph Jardiniere, who came over some
time in the fiftfeenth century.
When an Indian wishes to trace his
or her ancestry the data on the moth
er's side is used, that on the father's
side counting for nothing.
It is Interesting to note that Mrs. Sa
van spent over eight years in collect
ing the records which would establish
her ancestry beyond a doubt.
