' Stopped Proceedings to Shake Hands With Judge. EXPRESSED OPINION. Was Only a Witness but Want ed to Address Jury. Thinks "His Honor '! Would ! r Make Good Fight Referee. New -York. Oct. 23. John L. Sullivan occupied a chair in Trial Term Part VII of the supreme court, waiting to be call ed as a witness for Daniel F. Dwyer, in a. suit against the Metropolitan Street Railway company to recover $10,000 for alleged cersonal iniuries. Dwyer said "that on December 26, 1899,he was knock ed off a car of the defendant company at Thirty-fourth street and Lexington avenue. He said that he was so dis abled that he could not appear as Sul livan's sparring partner. The case was put on trial before Jur tice Giegerich and a jury. The Metro politan Street Railway company in its answer denied that it was responsible for any Injuries sustained by Dwyer. It denied that he was injured, as he al leged, and said that any iniuries which he said he sustained, if sustained, were caused by his own negligence. Dwyer asserted that he had a contract with Sullivan by which Sullivan was to pay ' to him $1,000 a week to appear as his sparring partner. He said that he was unable to carry out the contract af ter ha was knocked down by the de fendant company's car. When the first witness was called Sul livan seated himself on the front bench in the rear of the courtroom. For a short time he listened to the testimony. He seemed greatly annoyed at the dis cussions between counsel, and after grunting aloud several times arose and left the building. After about half an hour he returned. His face was flushed, his hair was mussed and he appeared to be somewhat excited. He walked up to the counsel's table and took a seat near the lawyers. The plaintiff, Dwyer, was called to the stand, and while he told the jury how he was knocked down by the car Sullivan growled aloud and exclaimed, referring to counsel for the Metropolitan Street Railway company: "If that fellow kids me the way he is kidding Dwyer I'll make him look like 30 cents." A court officer motioned to the big fellow to keep quiet, and for a time Sul livan twirled his hat in his huge hands and smiled at the lawyers. He express ed supreme contempt for them, and said that thev talked too much. Dwyer testified that he walked down the street after he met with the acci dent. "You did not walk down the street or up the street; you were knocked out in the first round." said Sullivan in a loud tone. "Are you the witness?" demanded Geo. W. Pinney, Jr.. counsel for the Metropoli tan Street Railway company. "Not yet, not yet; but I'll be, you bet," retorted Sullivan to the great amusement of the spectators. "Pardon me. Judge, Your Honor," ex claimed Sullivan, as he turned toward Justice Giegerich and waved hishuge right hand. Justice Giegerich smiled in a good-natured way, and the former prize fighter said: "I respect Yer Honor I do, too much to intend any insult, I say, Judge, Your Honor." Justice Giegerich motioned with his right arm to Sullivan to take a seat. Sulli van smiled, and, to the amazement of every one, grasped Justice Giegerich's hand and gave it a vigorous shake. At the same time he exclaimed: "Judge, you are a good man and John L. Sullivan honors a good man. I tell you, when I go on that witness stand I will tell the. truth." Justice Giegerich is an athlete and a strong man, but he seemed to suffer from the former prize fighter's hand squeezing. He smiled and Sullivan exclaimed: "I am 44 years old, and I am a pretty good fellow." Sullivan tHen started- to address the jury, but was prevailed upon by James Dempsey, Counsel for the plaintiff, to leave the room. As he left the courtroom Sullivan said: "That Judge would make a great fight referee. He never loes his temper. He's the right kind. He shook hands with me. He is all right." Recess was then taken. ANNAPOLIS DEFEATS PENN. Quaker's liine Shows "Woefully Weak in the Contest. Annapolis, Md., Oct. 23,--In a hard fought contest here Wednesday after noon the naval cadet football team de feated the University of Pennsylvania by a score of 10 to 6. Except during a portion of the first half the middies played all around their famous "Big Four" rivals. The red and blue were never in the hunt and showed that they must improve wonderfully to keep in select company. Their line was woe fully weak, and except for some good work by Gardner, Barnett. Fortiner and Richardson, they would have been out classed throughout. The navy tam played good ball ex cept for a little slowness in getting off their plays. The line did not charge with sufficient force, and the backs, as a rule, got off slowly. The Quakers twice tried their famous quarterback kick, but in both instances Smith was too quick fcr the opposing ends. Three minutes after Belknap kicked off, navy scored their first touchdown on sn exchange of kicks, two fumbles by the red and blue, a penalty for off side play and gains by Wilson and Mc Nair. The latter carried the ball over the line, but failed to kick the goal. On the next kickoff Pennsylvania, after a series of plays, got the ball near mid field and by steady gains through the line carried it to navy's ten-yard line. A quarterback kfck was frustrated by Smith; Belknap attempted to lick out of danger, but the ball went out of bounds with only slight gain, and with out a stop the Quakers carried it over hostetter:s STOMACH BITTERS Has been before the public for 50 years and has met with remarkable success as a family medicine because it is reliable, and will cure when other remedies fail.

Wedgewood, handled by C. K. G. Billings, of Chicago, were the contestants, the farmer winning both heats, each being paced In 2:06. The judges announced that this was a new record lor two heats for a mare. H. K. Devereaux drove 'phn A. Mc Keren, in an attempt to beat 2:06V&, but failed, the mile being trotted in 2:07 tiat.

The mare won the two succeeding heats in easy fash ion. The judges announced today that any driver found guilty of "laying up" a heat would be severely punished. ,, ELLISON LIKES HERMIS. Says That He Is the Greatest Colt in the World: New York Oct. 23. Charlev Ellison, the horseman, is willing to bet $5.00) on Hermis if Louis V. Hell's Hermence colt and Durnell's western champion McChes ney come together in a match race this fall. Mr. Ellison is here from Chicago with his entire stable. "I do not wish to be understod as say ing that McChesney is not a' great colt." he said today. "I believe htm to be rirst class in every particular, but from what I have seen Hermis do it is my opinion that Bouis V. Bell has the greatest 3-year-old alive. If there is a better horse in any other country he is the greatest 3-year-old that ever lived. X always, liked Hermis and predicted last fall when . he was En indifferent 2-year-old. beating cheap colts and fillies on the western circuit, that he would imrvrove. "I backed Hermis in the Travers stakes at Saratoga the day Mr. Bell bonght.him from Henry Ziegler, and saw him win un der about as bad aride as a colt ever got. My bet was $1,000 and I got even arid 0 to 5 for my money. You may imagine my feelings when I saw young Ric laying five or six lengths out of the race a quar ter of a mile from the finish. When, in spite of this bad handling. Hermis ran around his field in the stretch and won. I made up my mind .that he was the best colt running, and have not seen anything that would cause me to alter that- opin ion. I read of his great races at 'GraveB end and Morris Park during the early days of the present meeting, and the form he showed confirmed, the estimate I form ed of him at Saratoga. I do not believe we have had a .3-year-old in this country in 20 years that could have done what Hermis did in the Mamaroneck Handicap at Morris Park. If we have, the horse has escaped notice." , Racing at New York. ' - ' New York, Oct. 23.- The. seventh . (Gas- tleton selling stake; the feature event at Morris park.; -was won by Sparkle Esher, at 7 to 2, in the betting. Lady Albercraft, favorite, was second and Miladi Love, an outsider, third. The fa vorite made the running to win a few jumps from the wire, where Sparkle Esher moved out and won driving by half a length. -:. , . The fourth race or 2 year olds over the Withers mile brought out f good field, w ith River- Pirate -a hot favorite and Sergeant next in demand. Chris tian A. made the early pace, but in the stretch River Pirate and Sergeant went to the front and in a hot finish the fa vorite won by a head, with Sergeant second and Mackey Dwyer third. Lyne, rider of Sergeant, claimed foul against the winner. The claim was allowed, the officials placing Sergeant first, Mackey Dwyer second and Injunction third. The time, '1:39, was very fast. Warranted, in the last race,' easily de feated the favorite, Advance Guard. Burden Helps to Coach Harvard. Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 23. The Har vard varsity squad of coaches was aug mented yesterday afternoon by ex-Captain Billy Burden of the 1900 team, Bert Waters, and Dudley Dean. Burden de voted his time to the guards, rind put them through hard practice in offensive and defensive tactics, while Waters at tended to the tackles and Dean to the quarter backs. The varsity men were given a rest, as the game with West Point and the long trip taxed their ener gies to the utmost. Dan Knowlton, who is considered first choice for right tackle, was out for the first time in two weeks, and his work was eminently satisfac tory. The substitutes lined up against the scrub, and in the last few minutes of the second half scored a touchdown. Beginning today the practice for the regulars will be longer and harder. Hermis Worked WelL New York. Oct. 23. The great 3-year-old, Hermis, was worked Tuesday at Morris Park between the second and third race. He was sent a. mile and a furlong as a trial for Thursday's Ramapo Handicap, doing the distance in 3:55 very cleverly.- Many of the western men who witnessed the work, among them Will Wallace. J. C. Murphy. Horry Rurham. Luther Dickin son, J. C. Chinn and others, scouted the idea that McChesney could defeat Hermis at any distance. At the same time fhey argued that if Durnell and Hertz want a race -ery badly they will be accommo dated if they come on with their colt. If not at Westchester, then at Aqueduct or Benmn:r. Hermis is now at his best and they thought that if McChesney is sent here Louis v. Hell is not likely to retuse to and the latter's eealp to Hermis well filled belt. Yet it is not very likely that the match will be made. - . ? - -; National League After Baltimore. ' Baltimore, Md.. Oct. 23. Edward Hanlon, the Brooklyn manager, says' the Natiori-il league will bid for the .'handsome new stands at the American league park here to be sold at a receiver's sale.

"Muggsy" McGraw is a very much worried man. John T. Brush, the new owner of th3 New York Baseball club, "has been exr pected to arrive in this city ever since last Wednesday from his home in. Indian apolis. Then. may.'oet the names of New York's next-year team will be revealed. Johnny McGraw ia still doing his sphinx act, and no one need expect to hear how the Giants will line-up in 1903 until John T. gets here. Even then it is likely that another excuse will be made for a delay. There is no explanation of his long ab sence. . ', ., ' . MeGraw's worrlment is evi-nce enough that the little manager has not been hav ing everything his own way In securing the American League stars. It can be said, too, that he has' trouble enough in signing the star members, of the Giants of the past season. . " : ' McGraw has not secured Christy Ma thewson's signature to a contract for next season. Frank.Bo'A'errnan is another Mc Graw has not signed, -and, even though "Matty" may make up his mind later on, it is a sure thing Bowerman will not.. For it can be said positively that' Bowerman is signed with the- St. Louis' ' American League club for two ears at a salary of $3,730 a year. The 'big' catcher, at the time he signed, received a bonus of $500 in cash, and, if details are necessary, the money was paid in one bill. The team,, as scai officially announced some weeks ago by ene of MeGraw's newspape friends, eeem3 to be pretty badly shaken to pieces. - Notre Dame Team in Good Shape. Notre Dame, Ind , Oct. 23. The Notre Dame football squad apepared on Car ter field in almost as good condition as when they left for Toledo to play the Wolverines. It was thought Captain Salmon after bucking Michigan's heavy line would not be in practice condition, but the sturdy captain was the first to leave ' the gymnasium for the football field. Kirby, who was on the side lines in the Michigan game, had on his foot ball suit, and Doar and McDermott, the half backs, were also on the line. The practice today was short and light, con sisting of catching punts and signal practice.
