Long Ball Badly Defeated After a
Sensational Plunge.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune. 1
fjfcaliiiiito, April 1.-Fred Littlefleld and
his friends made a "killing:* at the Penning
racetrack to-day that is likely to be talk, d of
for HUH time to come, but an even bigger -'kill-
Ins" planned with Long Pall, owned by Thomas
Hitchcock. jr.. <ailed, so that the layers will be
aWe •.. do business to-morrow In the same old
way. Jubilee, a good looking chestnut colt by
C'Mnrut*»-Stefan-tte, was the medium of the
successful "killing" in the third race, at four
fud a half furlongs for two-year-olds. Th*
youngster was backed from 15 to 1 to 6 to 1 and
won like a good colt under Radtke's vigorous
To a good start Superstition rushed to the
front and showed the way by two or three
lengths to the head of the stretch, where Glau
cup. the even money favorite, and Jubilee moved
ut> together and gave challenge. Superstition
went wide and stopped under pressure, and the
:h«-r two fought It out through the last fur
lung. Jubilee proved the better and furnished
a regular jubilation for his backers by winning
In a hard drive by three parts of a length.
Glaucus hung on in game fashion and did not
lose any friends in defeat.
Jchn E. Madden seems to have lost his cun
ning. He trains Long Ball for Thomas Hitch
cock. Jr., and expressed such confidence in the
colt that his followers did not hesitate to "go
the limit." The clubhouse bettors, led by
Charley Gates, It was said, sent In such big
commissions that the price was pounded down
*rom 10 to 1 to 2 to 1. The rail birds told of a
last work out and the "tip" became infectious.
The " all-over-but-the-shouting confidence of
those who bet on the colt was soon dissipated,
however. Long Ball broke well enough, but ran
preen and was soon far out of it, and finished a
poor seventh. To add to Maddens discomfiture.
his own colt Beckon ran second, practically
neglected at 20 to 1. Lady Powell, played by
bar stable connections from 20 to l to 15 to 1.
tf.ok the track at the start and made a show of
lier field. Laudable, which was coupled with
Olorious Betsy as a slight favorite, threw
IClenck. hi? rider, soon after the start, but the
!>< y was not injured.
J. W. Colt won his third Jumping race at the
meeting, when Pioneer, at 1 Is 2. caught Sou
vigny in the stretch. and won easily by a length.
Harry Baylor, with Mr. O'Brien up. ran well
for two miles, but tired badly and pulled up a
bad last. Souvlgny fenced well, but Pioneer,
a fast off from the Whitney stable, had more
fpeed on the flat.
Anna May. favorite at 9 to 5. won her second
race of the meeting in the first event. She made
most of the running and lasted long enough to
get the decision by half a length from Rose, of
Dawn, which closed strong. The other winners
were Tirkle and Reidmoore. Tickle raced Slick
away into submission In the first half mile and
< am*- away to win easily, while Reidmoore made
his company look cheap in the race event. Nib
ilck was played from ~> to 1 to 13 to 10 in this
race, but dropped back beaten after showing
*■"•■>.(■ early speed. Betsy Binford ran a re
rnnrkable race by finishing second after being
pratticalJy left at the post.
Vr. C. Daly was fined $25 because his filly.
Sweet Eiieen, was ten minutes late in getting
to the paddock. Somebody played an April fool
joke on "Feather Bill." and it took him all day
to coo] out.
The track had dried out from yesterday's
rain and .vas fast. A good sized Monday crowd
was in attendance.

Numerous cities were represented by the
teams that rolled in the championship tourna
ment of the National Bowling Association con
tinued here to-day. Prominent among the
starters in the five-man class were the New
York Tribune team, three Algonquin fives, of
New York; the Empire team, of Newark, and
the strong Mlneralite team, of Chicago. In the
first squad the Tribune team five totalled °±.7i\\,
the men having trouble Jn "finding" the alleys.
During the afternoon the alleys were occupied
by several squads of two nun teams and indi
viduals. Among those who rolled in the former
class were President Oute. of the association,
and Jack Breen, of the New York Athletic Club
The veterans Joe Thum an-1 John Shilling were
another pair of New Yorker* to try, but neither
got high. Arnold and Klingelhoffer totalled
The feature of the day's bowling was the work
of the Algonquin No. 1 team. It started with
fMB and followed with 083. Jimmy Smith, called
the "peerless." rolled on this five, while Dave
Shiman was at anchor. After the second game
It was generally conceded that the "Indians,"
as the Algonquin team is styled, had the high
score at their mercy.
The team rolled X&4 in the third game and
made a new five-man total of 2."CC<. The old
high mark was 2.7LT>. made by the Wyndham
team, of Philadelphia.

Two Witnesses Heard on Major
Delmar-Lou Dillon Race.
The trial of the case of the Memphis Trotting
Association against E. E. Smatfcers to recover the
Gold Cup yon by Major Delmar In 1901 was begun
before Justice Greenbaum. and a jury In Part 14
of the Supreme Court yesterday. Parker. Sheehan
& Hatch represented the plaintiff, former Judpe
Hatch trying the case. John J. Adams and former
Jud»e Edward P. Coyne appeared for Mr. Bmathers.
The ease on trial is known among racing men as
the Gold Cup scandal, and Involves the alleged
"doping" of the trotting mare Lou Dillon in the
race with Major Delmar over the Memphis track in
1904. Major Delmar. owned by Mr. Smathers. won
the Gold Cut>. The- question was thrashed out be
fore the Board of Review of the National Trotting
Association last spring, and the board found in
favor of Mr. Bmathers.
The men who testified before the Hoard of Re
view swore that to the best of their Judgment Ijou
Dillon had been doped, and Eddie Maloy swore that
he saw Millard Sanders, trainer of the mare, try
to give a bottle of champagne to the trotter. George
Spear, who was trainer for Bmathers at the time,
submitted an affidavit in which he swore he had
instruction:! from Smathers to insure the race to
Major Delmar.
Former Judge Hatch, for the plaintiff, in his
opening, said it was an action of replevin to obtain
the Gold Cup. valued at about $2,500. Ho told
the story of the alleged "doping" and said that
before this disputed race each of the contestants
had won one race, and this was the race that
would decide the ownership of the trophy. lie
said he would show that several days before the
race the defendant conceived the plan to unfit tie
mare, so that she should lose the race, .md en
tered Into a conspiracy to prevent the mare from
winning the race, and then carried out the con
"The mare was in perfect condition until thirty
minutes before the race." declared the law>cr,
"and we shall show that on the morning of the
race she was 'worked out" and showed '■• " speed
and was in fine condition. Between the time of her
'cooling out' from her preparatory race, the mare
was drugged, and when she was hooked to th«
wagon In preparation for the race she showed
that something was wrong. On reaching th-? hull
milo post the mare suddenly stopped, and Major
Delmar finished the mile in 2:07. while til* mar«
was only able to finish in 1:11 A veterinary sur
geon was called and he informed the judges tnat
the mare was unable, to race the oth ; heats.
Therefore. Major Delmar went around the track
and the Gold Cup was awarded to Mr. Smathers."
John J. Adams then moved to dismiss the com
plaint on the ground that there was no cause of
action. Mr. Adams said that the Gold Cup was
either owned by the New York Driving Club or th'>
Memphis Driving Club, and that it was not owned
by an individual member of cither club. Justice
Greenhaum denied the motion.
Judge Edward P. Coyne, counsel for Mr.
Smathers, in an amended answer, set forth that
the latter denied that he was in any way con-,
neeted with any conspiracy, and declared that If
any conspiracy existed It was against his client.
George W. ' Spear, formerly a driver for Mr.
Bmathers was the first witness enlled for th* plnin
tiff. He said that at the meeting in Lexington. Ky .
two weeks before the Major Delmar-l«OU Dillon
race. Mr. Bmathers told nini that he was anxious
to win the cup and told him to go to Ed Sounders,
who trained Lou Dillon, and see if there was not
some way In which Major Delmar could win Bpear
paid he saw Sanders and had several conversations
with him in regard to the matter, and that Par.d'r.s
finally told him he could hive the man beaten for
$10,000. He said he reported thjfc to Mr. Smathers.
who said it was too much, and that nil he would
giv« was JSOOO. Spear testified that Sanders re
fused to accept less than $10,000. and that the
transaction ended there so far as he was con
cerned. . .
The witness said that he had seen the mare being
driven by her trainer. Millard Banders, a brother
of Ed. several tin»es prl>.r to the race, r.r.d that
he had seen Ed Sanders and others talk; to
gether He said he had bet on Major iir.ar to
win the race. Asked a* to Who was the. b'tt^r
driver. Mr. Wiling* or Mr Bmathers, he replied
that Mr. Snmthers WSJ for snrm- horsei and Mi
Billings for others. The witness admitted that he
had been ruled off the turf, but said he mid hop^s
of being reinstated at the ii^M meeting of tho
board of review. He denied thnt the ftrst Infor
mation regarding the case wax given by him
The next witness was Mlllurd (Minders. He tes
tified that when Lou Dillon reached Memphis for
the race she was In perfect condition and that In
his opinion Fhr- was better than ever before In her
life Sanders went on to say that i- ga< * % her
ron«M*ral'le work .it! th.it In the try-nut prepara
tory to the cup race she trotted ■ half mils In very
nearly a minute. He said she was not distressed
in any way and "cooled out as nicely as any liors«;
At this point the case was adjourned until to-day.

A r . V. U. "GYM" RECORD.
Work of the Intercollegiate and
National Cham pions.
New York Ualverslty has a remarkable record
in gyranasties. Since the sport was taken up by
the local college several years ago It has suffered
defeat only onr" in a dual meet, and that was by
Princeton In 1903. This record is al! the more ro
markable, for in gymnastics, unlike most other
ppcrts. th© scoring of points depends entirely upon
the opinion of the judges.
The New York team brought Its season to a
close last Saturday night by winning the point
trophy in the national gymnastic championships of
the Amateur Athletic Union. The work of A.
Bchnall, who won the parallel bars, the horizontal
bar and th« tumbling contests, was sufficient to
give the local team first honors, but enough point*
were trathered in by bis team mates almost to
double his score. At the intercollegiate champion
ships held at Philadelphia two week* previously tho
New York gymnasts had little difficulty in winning
first place. They now hold the honor of two euc
cesplve victories In the intercollegiate gymnastic
In th« season Just closed the New York
University team defeated Yale. Pennsylvania and
Columbia. A meet was arranged with Princeton,
but through some faculty rule the Tigers were un
able to compete, although they gave an exhibition
in Ihe University Heights gymnasium. The Violet
team has defeated, besides the teams already men-
ned, Princeton. Rutgers, Haverford and Lehigh
several times In the last few years.
Of the individual members of the team A. Schnall
is considered the best all-round performer who ever
rej. resented New York University. He is a finish
worker on the horizontal and parallel bars and an
expert tumbler, as shown by his work last Satur
das night. At the national championships several
Judges said his showing on th» parallel bars was
equal to that of many professional performers.
I* OreanfsM confines himself to one piece of ap
paratus, the flying rings. He has won the inter
collegiate title fur this event for two consecutive
y>»ars and finished third In his freshman year.
Oreenfeld is one of tin* very few college performers
who have ever been able to "hold" a reversed
Maltese cross.
It . Is one- of the most difficult moves known to
gymnasts. The gymnast holds the rings at arms'
length and, with feet In. the air. swings back and
XV. Thompson Is a worthy understudy to A.
Schnnll in the tumbling contest. These two men
I'lttrrinte in carrying off first honors in this event.
J. Fernandez, a Cuban, has an enviable record on
the side horse. The other members of the team
who have made creditable performances during
the last senson are G. A. Flynn and C. E. Hicks.

Sheppard Wins Relay Race for
S2d Regiment.
The first set of games held by the 69th Regiment
Athletic Association in its new armory. I6th street
and Lexington avenue, attracted a large crowd lasv
niKtit. The big drlllroom proved to be an excel
lent place for holding athletic contests. The events
were so well filled that even the half-mile race had
to beTun in four beats before It could be decided.
Melvin \V. Bbeppard, of the Irish -American Ath
letic Club and 22d Regimen', followed up his re
markable performances of last week by practically
winning the mile relay race for his regiment in
a contest with several other regimental teams.
When lie started off la the last relay, which was
a handicap affair, he had to overcome a. lead of
more than fifty yards, and the chances of his team
seamed hopeless. lie gained on the leaders at
every stride, however, and passed them one by one
in such graceful manner that the crowd went wil.i
with enthusiasm. On the Anal turn he tools the
it rut and won by two yards.
Later In the evening he attempted to lower the
half mile Indoor record, held by himself, but failed.
His time, unpaged, for the distance was 2 minutes
'i l-j seconds. Tbe summaries follow:
