Ybe third day of the- annual show was not behind the first two In the matter of attendance crleen interest displayed. All day long the Gar den was the Mecca of fanciers and dog lovers. The Juiiges were still hard at the task of award ing Iks ribbons and the long l^st of special cups md prizes, and again, be it said, the placings *ere well received in the main. The task, and It hM not been an easy one. of weeding out the cv!!?. and then deciding between those which tad c'.nSr.B to recognition, was all but over last nlcht. Close to two thousand dogs have gone in ih<i rings and out again, some of them three iizjfl four times, and from this number the win cere have been picked and placed on a pedestal elitbtly above their fellows for a year at least. nose who go to the Garden to-day will be able to bee by the decorations on the benches which were the fortunate ones. TOT CLASS IN THE RING. The Judging yesterday v as confined largely to the toy classes, Which might ba classed under th* general head of "Dogs to be loved or pitied." All of them are petted and loved, mum of them ir.uFt be pitied, as they are handled and pre served vith as much care as a rare hothouse plant. There were many heartburnings among the exhibitors, most of whom -were vromei -when their ravored ones failed to fill the critical eyes of the Judge, who did not appreciate their win ning ways and only looked for quality. The sturdy looking little Pomeranians— than which no more attractive dogs -were benched at (he Phorr — were easily the feature of the day. There was a gcv>dly representation of the breed, c::4 in many ways It vac a remarkable class, A? they grow In popularity In this country, so do they Improve In Quality, and those benched this year are a long way the best collection ever ■mo b»r*. Beautiful Billy, enown by Mrs. J. H. Erookfleld, won a distinct triumph by scoring *.n the limit, open and winners classes for dogs.

Philadelphia, Feb. 14.— The committee on athletics of the University of Pennsylvania abolished to-day its old athletic eligibility code, and adopted a short and simple one. the main provision of -which Is a rule forbidding freshmen or any department to compete in athletics until they have completed one academic year of work in a satisfactory manner. Other clauses of the code follow: No student shall be allowed to represent the uni versity in intercollegiate athletic contests who shall at any time have taught or engaged In any athletic sport for a pecuniary or other consideration, with the exception that he may have received the amount hy which the expenses necessarily Incurred by him I?, taking: part ln eurh sport or contest exceeded auroral expenses. No student shall represent one or more universi ties or colleges in intercollegiate athletic contests for more than four years. The rules regulating eligibility as formulated In mis code shall be interpreted as representing: merely a required minimum. No student shall be considered eligible to represent the university In athletics merely because he satisfies these minimum rquirements. but it shall be the duty of the uni versity committee on athletics to determine vhether it Is best, all things considered, for any particular student or for the institution that he be permitted to become its representative In any brunch of athletics. The rules constituting this code were formulated some months ago. and were sent out for criticism to more than two thousand educational Institutions in all parts of the country. Replies were received from many universities, colleges and schools the larger number commending the code and most of the remainder approving with slight modifications or exceptions.

The committee under the national agreement has the power to change the rules, and their action Is subject to no review by the main organizations*. The report of the rules committee as received by the two leagues was as follows: Section 1 of Rule 4<? was amended by Inserting after the words "according to" the words when it disappears from the umpire view, ' and by striking out all the section nfter the words ac cording to" bo that the section reads: hen a batted ball passes outside the grounds or into a stand the umpire shall declare it foul or fair, according to -where It disappears from the umpire s view. Rule 2? was amended by adding to it the words "and when the time Is so called the groundkeeper and sufficient assistants shall be under the control of the umpire, for th* purpose of putting the ground In proper shape for play, tinder penalty of forfeiture of the game by the home team," so as to make the rule read: The choice of Innings shall b« Riven to the rap tain of the home club, who shall be the. sole Judge of the fitness of the ground for beginning a gam© after a rain, but after play has been called by the umpire he alone shall be judge as to the fitness of the grounds for resuming play after the cam* has been suspended on account of rain, and when time Is bo called the ground keeper and sufficient at tendants shall be under the control of the umpire for the purpose of putting" the grounds in proper shape for play, under the penalty of forfeiture of the game by the home team.

Last year the club added $5,000, and the value was something over $7,000. The conditions have been changed slightly. Instead of an entrance fee of $100, half forfeit, or $10 if declared by April 2. it is now pro vided for an entrance fee of $s<\ or $25 if declared by April 2. with $100 additional for starters. The race will bo worth $S,suO to the winner, with $I,«apO to second and $suo to third. The stake Is bound to attract a good entry, as it will he well worth v.Ui nlng after a long and fruitless winter. The new stakes are i-.Oled the Sterling, a weight for age rac>\ at one mil?, for three- year-olds and upward, and the Union, a selling 6take for three yeax-oldß, at one rmle.

The twenty-third biennial congress of the Na tional Trotting Association was held yesterday afternoon at the Murray Hill Hotel. In this city. No less than 841 members were repre sented, and tho attendance was made up of prominent horsemen from all over the- country. The result of the meeting -was a sweep. vic tory for the "old guard." or conservative ele ment. It was rumored that friends of C K. G. Billings and James Butler intended to put an opposition ticket In tho field. No opposition, however, developed from this quarter. "When it came to the election of stewards, however. Messrs. Billings and Butler were both dropped from the boards. The entire morning: was devoted to an execu tive session In which the credentials ot the mem bers -were looked Into. The afternoon session was a publlo meeting at which many new and Important amendments to the racing rules were adopted. The members of the rules committee included William Russell Allen. Pittafleld. Mass.; Horace W. Wilson. Lexington, Ky.: J. M. John son, Calais, Me.; William H. Gocher, Hartford, Conn.; R» J. Carter. Richmond. Va.; Colonel Robert B. Hough. Baltimore* Md.; H. X Bain. Poughkeepale, X. V.. and H. B. Shall. Allen town. Pa. ' .. Perhaps the rrmst Important rule passed at the meeting was that pertaining to the author ity of race- circuits of five or more tracks to appoint stewards. That this rule would b« passed was announced In The Tribuna last Mon day. The rule as passed reads: Any circuit of five or more tracks belonging to either th« American or National association n;ay, after incorporation, have the authority to appoint racing: stewards, who shall have full power over the racing at the tracks of the cir cuit. The names of these stewards shall be sub mitted to the presidents of the American and National associations, and If the nominations are agreed to by both the parent associations they will constitute a governing body for the circuit by which they are named, acting Jointly for the tracks and the parent association, and their decisions shall be binding until the close of racing on the circuit for which they act TVIND SHIELD IS BARRED. The general trotting horso public will, per haDS. take the most interest In the amendment madft to Rule 43 by which the u?e of wind shields is barred. This rulo now reads that In all performances against time a pacemaker may accompany the trotter or pacer, but shall not run ahead of him to break the natural reststanc* of the atmosphere. The reason announced for passing this rule was because experience had shown that the wind shield aided trotters and pacers to gain records from three to eight seconds faster than these same horses were capable of making under normal conditions. It uraa decided that the practice of admitting such performances to the records in a separate class had led to con fusion and was also manifestly unfair to the horses which had taken records In the regular way. The failure of some tracks to report to the compilers of the official '"Year Book" has In past years led to frequent errors In the records by which many hors?s have been credited •with records much faster than they could possibly have made. Therefore. In view of these diffi culties. It was decided to do away -with wind shield records altogether hereafter. It was re marked, after this rule was passed, that both the world's championship trotting mark of 1 :5% l 2. held by Lou Dillon, and the world's championship pacing record of 1:55^4, held by Dan Patch, are wind shield records. So. too, are the sensational marks made by Prince Alert two years a?o, as well as many of the records made and held by Major Delmar. Some strong 1 protests were made against sev eral of the new rules adopted, but the majority of the congress seemed to be heartily In favor of them and all those recommended by the rulaa committee were passed. "FAXE 11 RECORDS RULED AGAINST. Another Important amendment was also made to Rule 43. This related to the making of offi cial records and provides that meetings where official records are made must be advertised in the local papers at least one week in ad vance. There must also be two bona fide races each day. This will tend to prevent ••fake" record 3 like the mark which Oresceus -was sup posed to have taker, at "Wichita, Kan., two years ag-o, bat which was :;ot allowed by the turf authorities. Another important ruling was that In future nil starting judges must be licensed. W. P. Ijams. the president of the American Trotting Association, is said to be the sponsor for this rule. It is counted on to correct many of the abuses of the trotting turf. By It all tracks will be required to engage starting Judges ap proved and licensed by the parent associations. These licensed judges will then be held respon sible to the parent association for the proper en forcement of the rules and the correct timing of the races. They will be exDected to report any Irregularities and will exercise la a measure th° functions of supervisors. An amendment was passed •which provides that no horse sold or bargained for after 7 p. m. of the day preceding an engagement shall be eligible to compete. Rule ">1 was amended to prevent the employment In any capacity around a racetrack or stable of a person who has been suspended or ruled on* for any offence whatever. Had this rule been on the books and lived up to in the pas^ a number of the recent scandal cases which have stirred up the trotting horse world would not have been possible. The most spirited contest at the late session was over the adoption of a new rula to prevent drivers or riders from resorting to the use of a watch while in a race. The rule was one to be added to Rule 28. in relation to drivers and riders, which reads as follows: No driver or rider shall be permitted to carry a timing watch in a race except by consent of the judsr^s. H. K. Devereux, of Cleveland. Ohio, a member of the district board, protested against It being: adopted, declaring that it was uncalled for. The intimation that the carrying of a watch in a race for the purpose of cheating he said was absurd. The owners of horses, ha further stated, (rave much money for the training and timing of their trotters, and if the watches were done away with it would be hard to tell what pace they were going 1 in the heats. John Witty, of Canton. Ohio, differed with Mr. Devereux in relation to the rule, and believed it should be adopted. It did away with scientiao rating, ha stated, and would be much better for the turf. The rule was finally adopted, after further argument, by a vote of 24 to 6. Another new rule in relation to drivers and riders which was adopted was as follows: A driver or rider cannot be expelled from the National Trot tins Association for the non-pay ment of entries, except where ha is tht» nomi nator or owner of tha horse. Another matter that caused some discussion was the changing of Rule 19. Section 1. to read: "No heat shall be started in any trotting: rac» after sunset, by solar calendar time." It was also proposed, and adopted aftw much argument, that where a licensed starter was not present at a race meeting the horaa should be given a bar Instead of a record. Some of th« members believed this in some cases would be an injustice, for the owners of the horses went to much expense In having their trotters trained to make a record. The committee dually de cided that when a bar was given to a horse it could be removed by proper application anil statements of facts to the beard of review. A nominating committee of three durir.jc the meeting placed the following ticket in the field as officer* of the association, which was unani mously elected: President. P. P. Johnston, of XjgxJ „' :. Ky.; first vice-president. Morgan G. Buckley, of Hartford, Conn.: second vlce-pres!« dent. X. T. Smith, of San Francisco. Th« treasurer and eecretary will b« elected later la th« season.
