Moor, whom he beat out, was clearly short, pulling up very tired. The next time the latter runs he will be a better coit. Before the race Fred Brew, who acts as sort of confidential man for Tommy Burns, asked Bradley if Robert Wadjeil was for sale and the price. The reply was: "Ten thousand dollars, for he has the American Derby and a lot more rich stakes at his mercy." Bradley's pre diction may prove right, but he will have to improve a lot on his present form. He can win Jiere, but he is meet ing a. veiy ordinary lot.

Tim Donahue, the long catcher of the Chicago National league team, and Zaza Harvey, the red headed pitcher, were given their uncon ditional releases by James A. Hart yes terday. This action had been an under stood thing so far as Donahue was con cerned, but there was a general feeling that Harvey deserved at least a trial. He had little chance to show his skill with the team last year, and, when play ing in the American, made good in great style. Donahue becomes part owner and boss of the Colorado Springs team and Harvey will probably go to New York or an American league nine. Timothy Donahue came to Chicago about five years back, having been se cured from Kansas City, where he had been a marvel of endurance and hard work as a back stop. He was the sub catcher of the team the fi'-st year he was here, but finally rose to such dis tinction that he crowded Malachi Kitt ridge off the nine. Then, years after, came Frank Chance, and Chance crowd ed Tim to the minors, just as Tim had crowded Kitt. Tim also drew his re lease for noise, being a kicker and a stubborn young person in every way. As a catcher he was good, not wonder fula fair thrower, and a tremendously hard worker. His gameness was simp ly unequaled, the man getting cut after cut from diving headlong into the run ner, spikes and all. Tim's batting was light and his ability to play other posi tions small. HARVEY HAS GOOD RECORD. Harvey used to pitch in the old West ern league, and is well on in years. He gained great note in California during 1SD9, and Hart drafted him a year ago. He was a nervous, timid fellow, big and strong, left-handed and red-headed. Getting but a, brief trial with Chicago, he was farmed to Minneapolis, where he hit splendidly and played the field in great shape. ; Ed Heimerl, traded to Worcester for Delahanty, signed with his new club vesterdav. Heimerl was brought to Chi cago by Ted Sullivan, but never pitched a league game. So good an authority as Fred Pfeffer has come out in flat denunciation of the ne w base ball rules of the National league. Fred said vesterday that the rules would be found a frnst, especially the one con cerning men hit by pitched balls. "When I first broke into the league." said Fred, "there were men in plenty who made a practice of throwing the ball right at the batter's head to scare him, and the snme will be the cave again. Do you think anv man would be fool enough to b intentionally hit by Amos Rusie? Tet how main' men has Rusie crippled, in spite of their best attempts to get out of the way? That rule. I am sure, will be found useless and dangerous within a fortnight. The rule on foul strikes will simply kill fellows who are weak hitters anyway.- Thev never will make a. hit nownot in fifty games." RYAN THINKS HE HAS DRAWN A PRIZE. Jlmmv Rvan came out last night with a declaration that his new outfielder, Larson, whom he secured from Pfefrer and will use at St. Paul, is destined to be the greatest of ball riavers. "He is about tlie size and build of Mertes," said Ryan, "a wonderful batter, a fast runner, and simply marvelous on flies. He'll make his mark in the big league if he keeps his It developed yesterday that Louis Cri ger the catcher grabbed from St. Louis bv Somers. will get $3,800 for the season. Criger is eaid to be a sick man and not good for over a year or so. and is proo nblv trving to get all the coin he can be fore he' troes. During the recent players union agitation there was great laughter because a certain player, name unknown, refused to Join the association, saying that he was building a house and coutd not afford the $2 monthly dues. The man was Criger. and his $3,800 salary makes his economical ways doubly comical to the other players. Fred Hartman. Comlskey's third base man, passed through the city yesterday on his wav to Join the White Stocking team He looks well and avers that he will hit .330 this summer. DOGS AT BOSTON" SHOW. Mrs. Richard Harding Davis and Thomas W. Lawsoa Exhibitors. Boston. April a. The seventeenth an nual New England Kennel club bench show opened with nearly 1,100 dogs on exhibition. As usual, St. Bernards, mastiffs and Boston terriers are the principal classes, the latter being this year the finest ever seen -in one lot. There are also a large number of Great Danes. In the wire-haired fov terrier class Mrs. Richard Harding Davis shows Baby Forecast. He took a third and was highly commended in the novice class. Most interest today centered In the mastiffs and St. Bernards, which were judged by Miss A. H. Whitney. Dr. C. A. Lougest. of Boston, had things all his own way in the mastiffs, taking most of the valuable prizes. Favors in the St Bernard class were more widely distributed. When the Boston terrier classes are reached there will be much interest in the contest between Thomas Wr. Law son, whose entry is the largest ever ma le at any show, and the smaller breeders. Lawson recently bought a number of doss for exhibition purposes, paying $1,000 for one of them. PLAY WITH NEW YOHK. Suspected Baseball Flayers Come TTp to Contract New Tork, April 5. Luther (Dummy) Taylor and John Ganzel joined the forces of the New Tork club on Tiies dav at the polo grounds. There had been some doubt as to whether these plavers would report or not, as Taylor had signed a contract with the Cleve land American league club and accepted advance money before signing with New York, and GanzM was holding off on the salary proposition. Fitchers Fisher and Denzer were due to arrive in the city Tuesday night, and Broadway Aleck Smith was expected to report Wednesday morning. Manager Davis put his men through sor-e more easy work on Manhattan field during the day, and set a. good ex ample bv chasing the ball in center f-eld during two hours of batting practice by Selbach, Hickman.

SHAES.EY TO MEET RUSSELL. Sailor Will Tackle Westerner in Den ver Within Four Weeks. New Tork, April 5. Thomas Sharkey ha3 finally cinched a match and will leave todav for Denver, Colo., where he will meet Fred Russell, a western heavy weight, within four weeks. Sharkey re ceived his transportation tickets from Manager Floto of the Denver club by mail tonight, and at once began to make preparations for his departure. "Spider" Kelly, who has trained Sharkey for all his big battles, will ac company the sailor west and train him for the go with Russell. The contest will be for twenty rounds, and Sharkey will fight on percentage. He believes that he can make more money this way than to accept a purse, as Rupsell is a great drawing card in the west. If Sharkey defeats Russell he will probably make one or two more matches before he returns east. H$ is anxious to go to the Klondike to meet Slavin, and will be ready to start for Dawson after he is through in the west. Russell, who Sharkey is to meet, is practically unknown here, hut he has earned a good reputation in the west. He is a bigger man than Jeffries and handles himself very cautiously all the time. , . , A well known manager, speaking of Russell today, said that he believed the westerner was the coming man. It is said that Russell will furnish the sailor with a big aui'prise when they come to gether. NEW TRACK RECORD. The Conqueror Won the Montgomery Handicap Purse in 1:41. Memphis. Tenn., April 5.
