BIG SURPRISE AT GOLF
BARKER LEADS FIELD.
Open Champion- Off His Game in
Van Cortlandt Tourney. .
With » capital score of 148. H. H. Barker, of
Garden City, who left the amateur rank» only a
year ago. had the distinction of leading a high
class field of professional golfers in the first half
of the seventy- two-hole tournament on the an
Cortlandt Park public links yesterday. The for
mer Yorkshire amateur finished the day two shots
better than Gilbert Nichols, the far-driv4ng "pro"
from the Tedesco club, who ■won this tourna
ment a year ago. Isaac Mackie, of. Pox Hills,
followed rrith 162. and then came George Low, of
Baltnsrol. the metropolitan open champion, with
153. -V'
Such favorites as Will Anderson, of Onwentsia.
Ha Yi'estern title holder, and Alec Smith, of the
Nassau Country Club, were close up with 154
«»ach, but not so the new national open cham
pien. Fred McLeod, whose mark of 164 leaves th«
Midlothian man sixteen strokes behind the leader.
Will Smith, the man from Mexico, who practi
cally shared honors with McLeod in the open last
week, did a trifle better yesterday, his score of
15R leaving him still in the running.
Conditions were Ideal for golf. The wind
amounted to scarcely more than a gentle breeze,
while the course appeared to be in better turf
than formerly. Putting greens, however, on mu
nicipal courses must necessarily fall short of the
standard maintained at the private clubs. Possi
bly by contrast with the billiard-table surfaces
at Myopia, the Van Cortlandt greens permed
worse than they really were. At all events, trney
were the best the authorities could provide, and
It was as fair for one as another.
After Park Commissioner Berry formally opened
proceedings in he morning by driving the first ball,
the pairs got away at flve-mlnute intervals. an<? the
hustling committee of the Scottish-American Golf
Club, in charge of this year's tournament, produced
a. scorer for every couple. There were flfty-fiye-odd
starters, and all save two returned full cards.
James C. Craig, chairman, and S. B. McClinton,
tb« secretary, were especially active as official.*.
More than a thousand persona visited the course
during the day.
Barker found the short course Just to his liking
and started off with six consecutive 4s for the
hill holes. A 2 at the 110-yard fifteenth hole en
abled him to complete the first round in 75. In th»
afternoon Barker registered- another 2 at the sev
enth, a 160-yard hole, and he went out in a capital
Si A 39 home grave him a 73, the beet eighteen-hole
score of the day. Incidentally. It won a special
£5 prize for the Garden City man. Martin O'Lough
lin. the Plalnfleld homebred, who played with
Barker, was handicapped with a weak wrist, which
he broke several months ago. Barker's card was:

In • .._ 4 6 4 & 4 3 5 6 4— -39— 73— 14*
Nichols and Anderson played together, and the
pair carried a big gallery all day. Last year the
former made the course record of 69, but his short
Fame was not so deadly yesterday. Anderson was
fU^o guilty of missing short puts. Beth appeared
confident of doing better to-day. Anderson fin
ished poorly In both rounds. Nichols's card fol

The best nine-hole mark of the day must be cred
ited to Stewart Martin, the "Wee Burn "pro." who
had no less than six S's going out in the morn
ing. He reached the turn in S3. and that included
a 6 at the ninth.
George Simpson. th« Dutchess County Club man.

WANT HECTOR TO PLAY FOOTBALL.
Great Sprinter May Be TTsed as Halfbac.
at University of Virginia.
fFv Telegraph to The Tribune.}
<-harl..tt«>!=vilie. Va.. Aug. 21— The football au
thorities of the University of Virginia are anxious
to tansa James Alcyon Rector, the famous Virginia
Fprintor. come out for the football team this fall.
Their idf-a is to use Rector aa an emergency half
tack. Ti.\t to. not to play him regularly, but to
j>ut him in when a long run ia badly needed to
tan the tide of battle.
Four years ago the same scheme was tried with
V.&rf. then captain of the track team and a ten
second man. It worked to good effect in the Vir
rlnte-Oarlisle Indian game that year, for when
Jiass was put in In the last few minutes of play of
the second half he got around the Indians'end for
a B-yerd run.
The Virginia flyer hae played football at L*w
r*nc«vine and tried for the 'varsity team here In
Ms freshman year.

"While the Giants wera travelling from Chicago
to Boston yesterday both the Cubs and the Pirates
added another game to their list of victories by de
feating St. Louis and Cincinnati, respectively. The
result is that there are now seven points between
the first and third teams in the race for the Na
tional League pennant, with the New York team
In the lead by the narrow margin of three points
and Chicago the runner-up, three points behind the
Giants and four points ahead cf Plttsburg. With
only a month more to play, and with three teams
apparently evenly matched, this is the closest fight
that has been seen in the older league in many
years.
The Giant* enter the homestretch on Eastern
territory to-day with a double header with Boston,
and the opportunity Is given them to open up their
lead a few points, even if their rivals in the West,
who play only a game apiece, succeed in trouncing
the Cardinals and the F-eds again. McGraw's
pitching force is not in the best condition, as it
baa been under a heavy strain during the recent
Western invasion, but as the Chicago and Pirate
twlrlers have been working Just as hard to beat the
Giants it le probable that the New York men will
have the better of ft when they begin the long eerlea
of games on the Polo Grounds which will wind up
the season.

Although the Philadelphia. Athletics scored only
three runs in a double header with the Yankees at
American League Park yesterday, they managed
to take both games, the first by a score of 1 to 0
and the second by 2 to 1. ICld Elberfeld's players
could have won both games with any kind of hit
ting. but they were helpless before the Philadelphia
twirlers whenever they got a man on the bases,
with the exception of the first inning of the sec
ond game.
Both Joe Lake and Billy Hogg were in prime
condition and held the Athletics down to a few
meagre hits. I>ygert and Schlltzer. tha Phila
delphia twirlers. were equally stlnr/ in the hit
ting line, but they had men playing behind :.iem
with more ginger In their make-up than that ex
hibited by the Highlanders. The sun was sinking
far below the Palisades before the *ocond game
was over. It was one of the longest programmes
of the season, four full hours of baseball being
served up for one admission.
If ever a pitcher deserved to win his game Joe
Lake was the man. He put up a game which
would have spelled victory nine times out of ten.
One run was all the Athletics could make, but the
Yankees couldn't even do that. Pygert and Lake
were the opposing pitchers. As far as the hits
were concerned, there was nothing to choose be
tween them. Lake was much the steadier, however,
giving only two bases on balls, -while Dygert gave
three.
Joe Lake and Hal Chase were the only men who
could set at the Athletic twirler. The Yankee
pitcher dr. -re out a beautiful triple and a clean
single, whJie Chase got a brace of singles. Three
times Wid Conroy had a chance to tie up the
game, but he was not equal to the task. Twice a
little hit would have brought in a run. Ball and
Laporce carried off the fielding honors.
The Yankees had a fine chance to break into the
run column in the first Jnnin? of the opening game.
With one out Mcllveen waited and was rewarded
with a free pass. Then Hal Chase planted a single
in right field, Mcllveen going to third and Hal to
second on the throw. Hemphill forced out Mcll
veen at the plate. Laporte got a pass, filling the
bases. It was up to Morlarity. but he failed dis
mally.
Philadelphia drew first blood in the third inning,
when Manush tripled to left field and scored on a
passed balL He was the first Athletic to get on
base.
Joe Lake drove a beautiful triple to left field,
with two out in the fifth Inning. Conroy followed
with a long fly to right, but Hartsel got under it.
Had it not been for a Questionable decision by
Connolly In this inning, when ha called Ball out at
first, the Highlanders would have tied the score.
The double header attracted an especially good
Monday crowd to the hilltop, considering the
quality of ball being played by the Highlanders.
Probably seven thousand baseball enthusiasts were
scattered through th« stands when the second
game began, at 4:15, the first one having been long
drawn out.
Mr. Connolly, the umpire, was much in evidence.
He probably thought he waa working in some bush
league. Instead of following the game closely he
passed remarks with the rooters, much to the lat
ters' delight. "Mr. Connolly," as he informed the
spectators he was known as, neglected to doff his
hat when he announced the batteries.
Both pitchers were wild at the start of the sec
ond game, and each team shoved a run across the
plate. Philadelphia got the winning run in the
fourth Inning.
The scores follow:

SMALL CROWD AT TRACK
LADY BEDFORD'S STAKE.
Wins the Autumn Maiden Like a
High Class Filly.
"With a ban on betting and the memory brokers
not disposed to quote prices even to their most
intimate friends, the racing at Sheepshead B?v
yesterday was conducted in a way that was satis
fying to the most ardent adherents of the new
Agnow-Hart law, and the Coney Island Jockey Club
entertained what in all probability was the smallest
crowd in its history. Between 2,000 and 3,000 per
sons may have been present, bJt they made up a
crowd that looked wofully small in the big park
like inclosure, where forty thousand have been ac
commodated. It was a perfect day, the card was
a good one, and the sport was spirited and interest
ing, so the faithful were more than repaid for
the Journey to the track, even though the oppor
tunity to back their Judgment was limited to an
occasional oral bet between friends.
No arrests were m.ode. as thore was no occa
sion. Inspectors Flood and O'Brien were on hand
with the usual number of policemen in uniform and
plainclothes men. but they had nothing to do. The
field Inclosure, as on Saturday, was a vast empti
ness, with the gates tightly barred, and those
who were in attendance in the grandstand were
forced to Jive up to the letter of the law. even if
not so disposed.
The sixteenth running o? the Autumn Maiden
Stakes for two-year-oid maidens at the time of
closing was won in a common gallop by John E.
Maddens L&dy Bedford, a comely and racy look
ing filly by Ogden— Matanza. She won her only
previous start at Saratoga, and her manner of
winning yesterday was so impressive that it is Just
possible that she may prove a worthy rival o£
James R. Keene's Masketta. the winner of the
Futurity on Saturday. Lady Bedford, like Mask
ette, is eligible for the English Oaks, and John
B Madden said at Saratoga that she would be
shipped abroad with Sir Martin to fill her English
engagements.
The field for the Autumn Maiden was a good
one. including, among others, Lady Bedford. James
R. Keene's Footpad. Harry Payne "Whitney's high
ly trier. Hamburg colt County Fair. August Bel
monfs Madman and H. B. Duryea's Strike Out.
that speedy but faint-hearted colt which cost his
owner $16,000 aa a yearling and has still to earn
brackets. W. T. Ryan added his Previous-Ha
tasoo colt Effendi. so that nine horses went to
the post Strike Out made the running, as usual,
for half a milfe. but Lady Bedford breezed by him
at the elbow and came away to win as she pleased.
Strike Out hung on better than usual, but County
Fair, which made a favorable impression, beat
him a head for the place. Footpad was badly cut
off and knocked about, and consequently did not
race to his best form.
Brother Jonathan, which appears to be a ten
pound better horse on the grass course, won the
twenty-second running of the Turf Handicap at
one mile and three-sixteenths. He made most of
the running and won in a mild drive from George
Woods's MoQuette. which had more or les of a
stormy Journey, and which with clear Bailing might
haxe forced the winr.er out, even If he had not
beaten him- Master Robert was badly outrun in
the early part, as usual, but closed a big gap and
finished a respectable third. Thomas Hitchcock,
Jr.'s, Angelus, which on Saratoga forms looked like
a legitimate favorite, ran a dull, spiritless race. He
waa in a good position for half a mile, but appar
ently could not extend himself on the turf, and
eventually finished far back In the ruck. James
B_ Keene's Gretna Green was an added starter in
this .race, but he gave it up at the head of the
stretch when in a good position.
Harry Payne Whitney's colors were carried to
victory !n two races by Royal Tourist and Sea
Wolf. The former won rather cleverly from Mon
fort in the third race, while Sea Wolf won the last
after a long, hard drive with Gild, making a new
track record for a mile and a sixteenth.
Brookdale Nymph made her first appearance
since the Metropolitan Handicap In the first race
and ran well enough to Indicate that she will be
hard to beat in any company from now on. James
R, Keene's Peter Quince took her measure yester
day, but she hung on in gamest fashion aad beat
Nimbus, which made a new American record of
1:11 2-5 for six furlongs at Empire City, by four or
five lengths.
E. Dugan earned th« jockey honors, riding three
winners— Royal Tourist, Brother Jonathan and Sea
Wolf. Notter scored twice and Shilling once.
The stable of John Banford will arrive hera to
day from Saratoga.
