HARRINGTON SUFFERING
FROM BROKEN SHOULDER
Michigan Wrestler Will Not Be Able to
Meet Tony Harris for Sometime,
and Match May Be Off.
According to the Hloughton, Mich., (;a
zctte, there is small chance for a match
between Tony Harris and Tint Hlarrington,
at least as soon as was expected by the
backers of Ioth men in BIutte. It was
practically arranged that H arrington would
coime to Butte and wrestle Hlarris in Cor
nish style for $50o a side and the miatch
was to bie pulled off within three weeks.
The following taken from the Gazette
explains the delay which will result:
In answer to a challenge issuedl re
cently by M. J. D)wyer to the wrestlers
of the coppller country, Joe Zi.chr, a well
known local wrestler, says lie would be
glad and willing to accept the challenge,
if lie were in condition to do so, Zichr,
however, sustained a broken shoulder re
cently and that precludes his appearance
on the mat for at least six weeks to come.
lie says that if D)wyer is still here at the
end of that time and the necessary ar
rangements can be made, he will meet
the Hlancock wrestler. Another local
wrestler. Tim Hlarrington, is also recover
tng from a broken shoulder and is like
wise out of the running for the titme be
ing.
Says Stories Are False.
Young Corbett has issued a statement
to the effect that the stories that have
been going the rounds about his not being
in condition and that he is not paying
strict attention to his training are abso
lutely unfounded. lIe invites anybody to
come to his training quarters and see him
work and then judge for themselves
whether or not he is making proper prepa
rations for his coaming battle with Mc
Govern.
The reports were evidently circulated to
lafiuance th.e betting.

[The news w.ias receiveld here yesterday and
is taken to mean that Ic('llokcy's offer

the Inew league which proposes to give a

According to the story given nut, it Is

It is also anlnounllced that lPortlanid :anld

the new leatgue next year also. This will
miean a rivalry with Piresident Lucas*

The itovcmniti it is said was started a
few weeks ago i l'Portland and it was from

managers in the Pacific Northwest league
received offers to run tealls ini the new

Persons in a position to know say there
is a whole lot of truth in the story of the

more than likely that the organization will
cause a radical change in the make-up
of the lPacific-Northwcst.

At present he is only known as a tI-sec

American Athlete Is England's Idol.
Arthur Duy, the Georgetown university
sprinter and holder of the world's record
for the too-yard dash, who went the dis
tance in 9 3-5 seconds, has practically all
England at his feet. lie is the idol of
the English sporting public; the maga
zines devote page after page to the
methods adopted by him in his training,
and his picture is in almost every paper
and magazine. More than that, the man
ufacturers of several patent goods have
asked to use his name and photograph in
connection with their products. The races
he has been running in England have been
nothing short of marvelous. On several
occasions he has given the best of the
English sprinters as much as six yards
handicap and has beaten them easily. To
Duy's fame is due that Georgetown is con
sidered in England to be the college of
America.
A Magnificent Trophy.
It was announced at Cleveland last week
that C. K. G. Billings will offer to be con
tested for during the Memphis meeting
a solid gold cup of elaborate design, to coat
$5.ooo, for trotters driven to wagon by am
ateurs. It is to be a challenge cup and
will be the most magnificent trophy ever
offered for competition.
"Zimmy" Will Go to Prance.
Arthur A. Zimmerman, at one time the
undisputed champion of America, who re
tired but subsequently appeared on the
cycle track for another try at bicycle
racing, is so popular in France that he
has received a tempting offer to cross
the water. The offer is such that Zim
mermnan has accepted and signed a con
G'ROUSE SHOOTING POOR
IN MERRY OLD ENfLAND
Sportsmen Remember No More Wretched
Opening of the Season-Shooting
Postponed in Many Cases.
[l AsshOcIATEr D PRESS.]
New York, August z5.-l'he opening
of the grouse season in Great Britain, Au
gust I2, this year, is thus commented ul%ýn
by the Herald's London correspondent:
According to. the reports from the
north, sportsmen never remember such a
wretched opening of the grouse sihootnig.
A cold spring followed by an unusual
summer, has killed the young birds off
on many moors, while the matching in
many districts proved a failure.
Owing to the poor reports of the birds,
sportsmen were slow in arriving on many
moors and on account of the backward
state of birds, the opening of the shoot
ing has been postponed for a week in
some cases, parties not being invited to
meet before the 26th, a fortnight later
than usual.
On the Perthshire district the results of
the day on those moors where shooting
was started were very poor, in several
cases being only a fourth or fifth of the
yield of last year's first day. The coveys
were found to be scarce and small. On
the Yorkshire moors, it was also the
worst "twelfth" known for very many
years.
The sport was disheartening. though on
some of the low-lying moors, such bags
were obtained as made those shooting on
the hills envious.
For instance, Sir Christopher FurnesB
shot over the Grantly moors, near Ripon,
with Marmaduke Furness, Joseph A.
Pease, M. P., Doctor Mac Lagan of Lon
don, Hon. John Maxwell Scott and Mr.
C. N. Nicholson, and birds were to be
fairly numerous and strong. Before
lunch the party had bagged the goodly
number of 2ao brace.
Also up to luncheon, Colonel Charles
Worth's party on the moors to the west
bf Richmond, with four guns, had bagged
136 brace, while seven or eight parties
bagged an average of So to 6o brace dur
ing the first half the day up to which
time reports are at hand,
On the whole It has been an Inglorious
twelfth. Grouse are selling on the mar
ket at a4s ($6) per brace against 16s
(4) last year,
tract to appear at the Parc des Princes
track in Paris in October. At present
he is conducting a summer hotel in Jer
sey and can hardly afford to leave his
business until the season is over. "Zimmy"
captured the hearts of the Frenchmen by
his clever riding years ago and they are
willing to pay big admission prices sim
ply to see him again, if only in an ex
hibition ride.
Star Ball Tossers to Tour.
Arrangements for the California and
llawaian trip of the Lajoic Baseball aggre
gation have been completed and it is
thought that the team will prove one of the
strongest that has yet made this trip. The
players in the All-American stars who have
received contracts are:
harry l)avis, Athletics, first base; Na
poleon Lajoic, Cleveland, second base;
l:radley, Cleveland, third ; Wallace, St.
Louis, short; "l)ucky" IHolmes, Detroit,
center field; Fileding Jones, Chicago, left
field; Wyatt .ee, Washington, pitcher and
change fielder; Win Mercer, Detroit,
pitcher and change fielder: Sullivan, Chi
cago, catcher; McGuire, Detroit, catcher;
Bernhard, Cleveland, pitcher. Another
pitcher, who will be one of the stars of the
American league this season, has yet to be
selected to complete the team. He will
not be selected until the end of the sea
son. Those who have been picked to
make up the All-National Stars and who
were sent contracts are: Beckley, Cin
cinnati, first base; Irwin, Brooklyn, third
base; Steinfeldt, Cincinnati, shortstop;
Clarke, Pittsburg, left field; Crawford,
Cincinnati, center field; Kahoe, Fraser,
Philadelphia, and Donovan, Brooklyn,
pitchers. Two other pitchers have to be
picked, while a second baseman and an
outfielder have also to be selected, Keeler of
Brooklyn will probably be given a place
in the outfield, as he wants to jeoi the
outfit.
Unique Auto Race.
One of the most unique contests of the
year and one of the most original ever
conceived will be the automobile obstacle
race, which will be one of the events held
under the auspices of the Long Island
club at the Brighton Beach race track on
August 23.
Dexterity, rapidity of thought, judg
ment and calculation are the qualities
most called for in a competition of this
class. The operator who is accustomed
to threading his way through the crowded
city thoroughfares, and who has more or
less often crossed the Brooklyn bridge Is
the one who, if he drives a light car, should
be able to win the prize.
To Feature Wagon Races.
Wagon races will be one of the prin
cipal features of the meeting of the Memn
phis Trotting association, which begins
early in October.
The principal feature will be the race
for a $5,o00 gold challenge cup offered by
President C. K. G. Billings, the Chicago
millionaire. The race will no doubt at
tract the best horses that are owned by
amateur drivers.
Boston, Cleveland, Philadelphia and New
York will be represented, and it is safe to
say that the metropolis will be prepare l to
send a string that will make the other
cracks step some if they want to carry off
