Thought England and Germany Will
Send Yachts to Try for the Prize
Sir Thomas Puts Up.
«ew York, Oct. p--It has been decided that
the Atlantic Yacht club shall be custodisa of
the Sa,soo cup which Sir Thomas Upton has
olered for an ocean race from Sandy Hook
Lightship to the Needles in May nest.
The cup will be a challenge trophy, and Sir
Thomas hopes that it will become an interns
tional prise of prominaence. He has been
assured by distinguished yachtsmen that it will
be raced for by famous ocean going boats.
The Atlastle Yacht club will give three
additional cups-one of the value of $Soo to the
first yacht finishing; one of $3oo to go to the
second yacht, and still another of $aoo to go to
the third boat.
The restrictions to the race will be few. The
yacht will take its own time at the fnish and
allowances will be barred. Sir Thomas believes
the German emperor may send a yacht to the
race and that American yachts will probably
take part in the Dover4-eligoland contest and
others at Kiel.
It is believed also that the king of England
will be Interested in the contest.

How a Fellower of the Races Won a Big
UThis happened to me at Sacramento," said
a well known horseman today at one of the
poolrooms. "There was a green horse entered
in one of the races sad he looked like fresh
eggs to me. I couldn't figure him out any
worse than third and the more I thought about
it the more I felt like taking a chance on him.
The odds were 4 to i for show and I sent one
of my boys down with Saoo to put on him for
third place. Now, that boy of mine is a good
boy and mighty fine company for horses and
mules, but he never was cut out to think
much, He got his wires crossed on the way
to the betting ring, and when he came back he
handed me $aoo worth of paper on this
youngster for place! I nearly fell dead-Saoo
gone and I never even had a chance to kiss it
goodbyel Those pasteboards called for odds
of to to s, but I would have been glad to sell
'em for 30o cents. They didn't look like real
money to me at all.
"The race was run and on the first turn this
green skate stopped to read a sign on the
fence. When he came out of it he was miles
to the bad; but there was where lie woke up,
and as sure as I am standing here lyin' to
you, I never saw a horse get such a monu.
mental wiggle on in my life. Man, he didn't
run-he simply flew! In the homestretch he
passed the bunch as if they had been tied to
the rail, and he came under the wire first by
a hair. I couldn't get up in line too quick,
and the bookmaker handed me a roll a grey.

Sullivan, the former world's heavyweight cham.
plo. ISullivan reached his conclusion after
careful comparison of the styles of fighting of
each man.
"Pitzslmmons is a great boxer," said John
L. "He has every advantage. I have seen
Gardner box., There's no comparison between
them. Gardner is quick, but he isn't quick
enough for Fite. Gardner is a heavy hitter,
but he is left at the post when you compare
his hitting with Bob's. Gardner can stand
punishment, but he isn't as crafty as Fits. lie
hasn't Fits's experience and he can't win.
Fits will knock him out. Just mark my words
on that. The Coratshman will beat the Irish.
man this time, and that in jig time."
Billy DeCoursey wants another whack at
Frankie Neill. "I do not want to disparage
Mr. Neil's victory over me In any way." says
Billy. "He is a great little fighter, and all
that, but I made a fool mistake in trying to do
the weight-- break I ought to be kicked for
making, as I have been in the fighting bust
nesa too long to have made such a sacker of
myself as I did the other fight. I'm not say.
ing I could whip Young Neit, but I do be.
lieve that if I west in weighing .s pounds at
j o'clock there would be an altogether different
fight. I would very much like to get a crack
at Frankie again."
There is no denyig that DeCoursey was not
himself at the weight. Ills showing was a dis.
tinct disappointment to all his friends. In the
shape he was when he put holly Smith out
before the same club DeCoursey would have
given Neil a whirlwind fight.
Frankle Neifl is willing to fight Terry SMc.
Govern, but is afraid to challenge the ex.
featherweight champion, for lie will be charged
with attempting to drag him into the ring at
so light a weight that he will be weak and
unable to fight. Some time ago Sam Harris
spoke of matching the younger Mc(overn
against Frankie for $s.on a side. "I would
like nothing better than an opportunity to
cover the money," says Jim Neil. "If, how.
ever, Harris has now reconsidered his propo.
sition, and would like an engagement with
Terry, I would stand ready to talk to him on
that point"
Charley Seiger has been discussing hil
chances with Britt. Hle has been hearing all
kinds of stories about Britt's ability to punch
and his speed as a boxer. "All I can say,"
said Selger, "is that I have been hoeing last
men ail my life, and Britt's speed won't keep
me back. Joe Gans can hit some. I guess
you all know that. Well, Gans never had me
running away from him, and I don't think
Britt will be able to do it. I will keep right
after Britt and his friends will know whether
he can fight when I finish with him. I know
that Britt is a good game fellow, and I am
taking no chances. I will go into the ring in
perfect shape, and the public will surely see
some fast work."

Minncapolis, Minn., Oct. 9.-Leonard C.
Dare of Walkerton, Ind., was killed on a
Northern Pacific box car at Northtown
Junction last night by tramps, who robbed
him of a considerable sum of money which
he carried,.
As the train was pulling into town the
trainmen heard shots fired, and hurrying
to the scene saw four men desoend :front
a car and hurry to the woods nearby.
Upon investigation Dare's body was found
on top of the car, his skull crushed and
a millet hole between the eyes.
From papers on Dare's body it was
learned that he had worked on a ranch
near Cooperstown, N. D., saved his wages
and was on his way horne when attacked.

Pittsburg and Boston Are Battling for
Coveted Honote-Series Are Not
Likely to tEnd Dispute.
Which of the two big leagues plays the
better game of baselall?
That vexed question, which has never
been settled and which is the chief cause
of argumnlent iand contention among the
fans, is once more being threshed out
while the post-season series is Iwing
played in various parts of the country.
Hut the results of the few gaines already
played by the rival teams of the leagues
do not go far toward giving a satisfactory
answer to the problem, and at the close
of the "supper shows" now in progress
it is likely to be as far as ever from a
solution that will hold water.
Ten teamls are now engaged in the post
season contests. In Chicago, l'hiladelphla
and St. I.ouis the rival clubs of the two
leagues are battlilng it out. Pitltsbur is
playing the big series of the year against
Boston for the worldl' championship and
Cleveland and Cincinnati are trying con
clusions for the Ohio pennant.
In Chicago the indlications are that the
Microhes have the call on the White Sox,
notwithstanding the remarkable reversal
of form displayed 'Tuiesday, when the Sox
took thie Microlbes into camp and soundly
troulced them. Mlan for manl, the West
Siders scent to have c'muiskey'a tream out
clahssed aul the team nverages for matting
and fielding are in favor of Selee's club.
In the National cihanmpiolnship series the
teams are much more evenly matched and
seem to Iw "sawing it oit." as it were.
Pittslurg took the opening dash ; the IInext
day lositon shut the P'irates out and Sat
urday Pittshurg tlurned up with another
victory, imakiing it two for one. rlThe
teams shape up practically on a par, ex
rept that l'ittsbulrg fi:ts a shade Ithe Ihcter
of it in the batting.
In St. Louis the collditions are reversed
from what they aplpea;r to be in Chlicago.
There the American hlague tl'aum -- the
llrowns-scemi to have it ni the t'ar, inals
and are sailing in to take away itse series
without much of a struggle.
Connie Mack's Atlhltics, in 'lh iladel
phi,ia that nosed the Cleveland Ulues. out
of secondl place, are also winning over thei
I'hillies of the National league, andi it is
nip andt tuck between Cleveland and Cii.
From these conditions it Is difficult to
argue that one league has muclch of an
advantage over the other, considerlnR
them as leagues, individual clubs in either
league are, of course, superior to the
clubs looked upon as their natural rivals,
but that does not prove much for the
league itself. Whtere the Nationals have
the edge on the Americans in one city
the advantage is offset in another town,
as in the case of Chicago and St. Louis,
or of Philadelphia and New York.
Whether the National or thle Americna1
plays "faster" ball or "higher class" hall
as a league, is a question that can never
definitely b)e settled, either by figures or
argument. It is very much akin to thile
question of which actor was the greatest
Hamlet on the stage, or which actress the
most charming Juliet. 'These things are
largely matters of opinion, often tiased
upon prejudice, local surroundings and
other extraneous conditions, and must he
so settled in the mind of each individual.
