Tbsre will also be a little hockey this week,
although the regular league season is over. The
Intersrnolastic championship will be played at
the Ft. Kicholas Rink. In which the following
schools are entered: Berkeley. "Poly Prep."
Lawrenceville. Cutler. Hamilton and Columbia

is scheduled between the Victoria Hockey Club.

•In the rules last week, on the recommendation
of the Joint rules committee, should make for
icood. but it is cause for regret that the um
pires were not formally instructed to adopt
the plan suggested by Clark Griffith, the man
ager of the New York American League team,
to raise the right arm or make some distinct
.motion when a strike is called on a batsman.
This suggestion is an improvement over the
one made by a Washington fan for a gesture
• system for both balls and strikes. Under Clark
Griffith's plan no gesture would be a ball. Be
cause this system was not adopted and made
mandatory does not mean, however, that it may
not be used. The presidents of the two big
league* could request their umpires to use the
gesture system on strikes, or even order them
to do-fo, and it is hoped that they win. It
would meet the general approval of the fans.
and . the umpires, who now oppose it. would
quickly acquire the habit and use it as natu
rally as they do the present signals, to indicate
close decisions on bases. Nothing was heard
of" the electrical score board at the American
league meeting last week, of which reports
came from Chicago some weeks ago. so that the
gesture system is the last hope of the enthusi
asts who sit in the bleacheries. far out of reach
of the umpire's voice.
■The New. York National League team is not
worrying over the defection of Donlin, Bower
roan and Mullen, and it cap. be paid on good
authority that the stories of discord p.nd dissat
isfaction among the players wboMiavc- signed
were made largely out of whole Vloth. Now
that Shay has uorae to terms and Mike Grady
secured he team will he . , strong enough to
give a g?>p<i-il»e count of itself In the fight for
the ciiSinaion«up DonUn is a good man. and
v.'j.l! be missel if he continues to hold out, but
Donlin is not absolutely necessary to the win
ning of the pennant. The fans need riot worry;
Messrs. Brush.. Knowles and McGraw can be
depended on to give New York ■ winning team,
if such a thins is possible.
Clark Griffith was wide awake when he ex
changed Yaeger. a utility man. for Branch
Rickey, the hard hitting catcher of St. Louis.
Griffith did nor need a catcher particularly, but he
may need a pitcher, if Chesbro holds to his pres
ent determination to retire, and this might be
arranged with a good catcher, to offer in ex
change. The Highlanders now: have four first
class backstops in Kleinow. Thomas. McGuire
and Rickey.
Many automobiles have expressed satisfac
tion In the effort being made by the legislative
board of the American Automobile Association
to insure the passage of a federal set providing
for the regulation. identification and registra
tion of motor vehicles engaged in Interstate
travel. The bill has been drafted with much
care, and introduced in the Legislature. There
has been a growing demand for a law of this
kind lor come time, and if passed it would prove
a boon to motorists, without interfering in any
way with the rights of the various states, so
far as regulating speed is concerned. The chief
advantage would lie in preventing the confu
sion due to duplicate numbers, when a car is
operated in a foreign state, and save the mo
torist the inconveniences which now confront
him in touring.
The remarkable vitality of the automobile In
dustry Is emphasized by the uniform success of
the various chows in different cities. The mo
toring public has welcomed the opportunity to
Study and Inspect the cars wherever shown, and
so many new converts have been made that the
manufacturers will have their hands full in fill
ing orders. The lot of the motorist this year
will be an easy one compared, with the experi
ences of four or five years ago. when the ma
chines were imperfect and little understood.
Those who first took up the pastime have keen
recollections r.f the struggle with carburetters
and ignition apparatus of those days. Repairers
who understood anything about the reasons why
a. car worked or not were few and far between,
while the fortunate, few. who did have some
glimmer of the truth not only kept such knowl
edge to themselves, but enveloped the details in
a halo of mystery, which effectually frighten*-]
off the motorist who wanted to know. Now all
Is changed. The. manufacturer and his agents
are anxious to -explain and instruct, handbooks
can be had. dealing simply and lucidly with nil
parts of a motor vehicle, while th« novice has
discovered that th«» Intricate looking mechanism
Is not beyond the understanding, with a little
Study and patience. This accounts in part for
the crowds at the hhows and for the wonderful
growth of the Industry.
One of the valuable benefits which club* and
Individuals will find In membership in the Amer
ican Automobile Association is the facility It
gives to those who go on a tour abroad. The
American national bod*- has an arrangement
with . the big touring clubs of England and
Europe whereby members of the American
Automobile Association get the benefit* of mem
bership in the foreign clubs. Through this they
not only find all information concerning routes
and roads nnd laws easily obtainable, but are
saved money and trouble in dealing with the
revenue collectors at the posts on the borders.
The membership that costs $2 becomes worth
hundreds of dollars In such cases.
Three weeks from to-day the Washington
JoCkey Club will throw open its sates at Ben
nl'.ig and the Eastern racing season, under the
control of th* Jockey Club, will have its begin
ning. The time is all too short for the trainers
who have wintered here to get their horses
ready, as the weather has been against anything
bvt shed work for several weeks. This will
have little or no effect on the meeting, however.
a* stable room is already at a premium, and
there will be plenty of horses from New Orleans.
California and training quarters in the South.
In fact., all Indications point to the most suc
cessful meeting ever held at Washington in the
beading Preach sportsmen are taking practical
•taps to encourage the riding out for places in
races <xt ail descriptions by urging the various
race societies to allot special and increased sums
to horses which finish second and third. And
the more important the event, the more neces
sity, they think, for a good horse which has met
a. better to ret something substantial for his
being a "trier." This decision was reached at a
wanting of the consultative committee held in
}-**"• recently. Although the French govern
ment h*j a big say In racing legislation, the
Minister of Agriculture saw that prominent own
ers and breeders couM give him practical as
sistance. He therefore established this advisory
body, which embraces nearly all the notabilities
on the French turf.
This is a question which the Jockey Club here
could take up to good purpose. Inasmuch as
betting Is not recognized it Is Impossible to make
a rule which will compel jockeys, to ride their
mounts out for third money, or suffer the con
sequences, but the stewards *ou!d recommend
increasing the second and third money in over
night races to a point that would make it an ob
ject to w|n. Many times during a season a
hon»e finishes outside the money when he could
have been second or third If he had been perse
vered with. It If hard on the racegoing public,
■which needs must speculate, to see n horse eased
up when beaten.
Need cf organization appears to have at 'a.
made itself felt among the light harness horse
men, track managers and racing associations
throughout the country, and reports from vari
ous sections where the wave of reform in this
direction has started promise one of the best
reasons that has ever been enjoyed by the fol
lowers of the trotter and pacer. During the list
fortnight meetings have been held which will
probably revolutionize thi> light harness sport
in Pennsylvania, New .York. New Jersey, Con
necticut and Maryland. A meeting was he?d in
this city a few days ago to consider the plan
of organizing the smaller raring associations
The plan is to brine together all the half-mile
trotting tracks within fifty mil- of New York,
start racing early In the season, and later join
the agricultural fair circuits, thus-- providing;
sport from June 15 to late in the fall. Repre
sentatives from Hohokus. White Plains, Carmel,
Orangeburg, " I >«:it,uiy and several other pkacea
■were at the meeting, and aft»:r talking over the
plan authorized S. M. -Kloiz. an otdttme trot tilt
track secretary, who managed the series of the
successful trptting jne<;tir.g3 over. the lio'nokus
track last season, to communicate with several
other racing associations and find out the dates
■which will beat Bull the prospective members
of the new association. It was decided to hold
another meeting as soon M the necessary In
formation has been secured, and launch the
new. racing circuit for the raining season.
The proposed chain of harness meeting* will
be called the Metropolitan Trotting Circuit,
and the organization shouhl prove the strong
est half-mile track circuit in the state,
not barring the Mohawk Valley and the Central
New York. An agreement has 'already been
made no that the dau-s of the Dullness and
Queens-Nassau County fairs will not conflict
with each other, as has been the case In the last
few years, and both of these associations ar?
willing; to become members of the new racing
Fifteen meetings, including the recognition, i-y
courtesy of the Grand Circuit at Poughkc^psi**,
may be taken in th's season by members of trie

further from Broadway than seventy miles. The

motor ryCLINT,
The motor cycle enthusiasts are now talking
about a show of their own its a result of the In
terest developed at the Chicago Automobile
Show. In speaking of the subject a well known
manufacturer said recently: . 'The crowds that
surrounded the motor cycle booths Indicate to
my mind the tremendous progress the machines
have made In the last year. Their field of use
fulness ir being extended and their vain. «:; be
ginning to be more generally recognized. Until
recently the motor cycle ha« been use.l almost
exclusively for pleasure, hut nowadays large
mercantile concerns are considering them for
collectors, salesmen, agents, quick delivery and
many other purposes. The modern motor cycle
will go and co all day and every day if the
owner will only give it the careful attention he
would expect to give a fine horse, for it needs
grooming {cleaning), feeding fwith gasolene and
lubricating oil), and shoeing <wl»h rubber tlr<\s>
and does not require the doctor as often as the
average horse needs the 'vet.' "

Captain Graham told the visitors that the reason
the Long Islanders were such duck hunters wai
because they were nil rluckfooted. and he says that
the easiest way to make a living on Long Island is
to go rut treading for clam*. A days work con

The sco^-er o? th« sailing variety is structurally
described by Vrtt Roe, of Patrhogue. M follows:
It originated in th» usa on the Great South Bay
by fishermen of a flit bottom skiff having ordinary

the' wind was favorable. they hoUted a s=mail sail.
thu« r<*'ieving themselves cf the labor of /iranginat
thY eldff home as a slei S l>. A later development
was that .by the w»e of sharp runners they found
theY could "use a lib and sili clop« on to the wind.
It must I" borne in mind that ail-th» storing is
done entlfery by the jib and without a rudder,
