Beats Coast Marie in Close
Heats on Speedway.
Christopher Hacketfs Who Knows, 2:10i~,

rurnished some good sport yesterday after
noon at Speedway Park with their race
which was not on the programme, hut
which proved to be the feature of the third
matinee of the Road Drivers.
The first heat was a genuine 'dead heat,
for it rm*. impossible for the judges to de
clare in favor of either of the contestants,
and the <r.^.i*r« were quite Fatisfleri with
the verdict. Who Knows won the second
h»-at. and It proved to be nearly, as cK>se as
the first, as he was only a neck ahead of
the mare as, they swept past the finishing
poet. The final heat went to Mr. Hacketfs
gelding, and. although it was not quite as
closely contested as the first two, it was
a good drive from start to finish, and either
horse had a fair chance of winning right
up to the finish. The fastest time was
M&A, made in the first heot.
Aristo, the bay gliding owned by Fred
Grosp, made the beat time of the day
among the trotters. He *tarted alone In
the A trotting class to beat 1:07, the best
time made by Joe Jap, and covered the

Previous Changes Made in
Deed of Gift.
'There lias been pome talk of the possi
bility of Sir Thomas Liptoh building a
yacht in Canada with which to challenge
for the America* Cup, but th* statement
lias been made without any authority from
Sir Thomas," Bald Colonel Duncan F. D.
Xelll yesterday, "and 1 can say positively
that ho never had any Idea of building in
Canada. It will be » British built boat or
nothing, met assured of that. -The Cana
dians have an opportunity to build a boat
and challenge If they want to. but Sir
Thomas wants nothing but a British built
Sir Thomas Upton spent the day paring
pipits to old friends in and out of the city,
lie ha« not yet called at the New 'York
\trt\t Club, but he has talked with several
members who have called upon him at his
hotel. There seemfe to re a general desire
to pee another race for th« cup, and all
agres that Sir Thomas is wise in not at
tempting to arrange a contest for next
The next regular meeting of the New
York Yacht Club at which the subject of
a challenge could be discussed will be held
on December 1«, but if a. challenge IB for
mally received from Sir Thomas it is quite,
likely that Commodore Arthur Curtics
James would call a special meeting.
"So many changes and modifications have
been m(ni« in the deed of gift since it was
originally drafted by George L. Schuyler
end the oth*r donors of the America's
Cup." said a member of the Larchmont and
New York yacht clubs yesterday, "that it
does seem quite reasonable at this time to
make suitable and proper concessions under
the mutual agreement clause to permit the
acceptance of a challenge from 50 good and
plucky a pportsn\an as Sir Thomas Upton.
Let us see, for example, just what has been
done at various times to modify the deed of
"The clause relating to the sailing of
ra^es without time allowance was strictly
adhered to from ISSI. when the cup was
won by the America, until the Purltan-
Genesta race, in 11&. Ever since then that
rule has been Ignored, and time allowance
has been a factor in all the. races. The
deed says that the courses shall be twenty
miles to windward or leeward and return.
Until 1887 that rule was enforced. After
that year the courses were cut to thirty
miles all told. --Again, In one or two eases
the ten months' notice called for by the
deed was Waived, ami the three. Shamrocks,
owned by Sir Thomas Lipton. were per
mitted to cross the Atlantic under tow. in
stead of sailing. These and other. minor
modifications show that the club intended
to and did make concessions that proved to
be for the best interests of. both challenger
and defender."

Re-elected President of Eastern League When Warring
Factions Come to Terms.
Tatriok T. Powers was re-elected presi
dent of the Eastern League of Baseball
Clubs at an adjourned meeting of the or
ganization in th« Hotel Victoria yesterday.
Whan the club owners gathered all oppo
sition to Mr. Powers was withdrawn and
his re-election was unanimous.
President Power* was first elected to head
the l*--agu» in 1893, And since then he ha*
served each year except during the season
of ISW.
At a caucus of the delegates at the Wal
dorf-Astoria on Tuesday night It was
agreed to name Mr. Powers as the chief
executive of the league for the coming
year, and no other name was mentioned In
nomination yesterday. It was said that Bal
timore, Buffalo and Newark were in favor
of electing James U. Price, that Toronto
etood out for "Edward Barrow*, While
Jersey City, Rochester. Montreal and Provi
dence were friendly to Power?. It was paid
further that the 'warring factions finally
agreed, on the understanding that Mr. Pow
ers would withdraw at the end of this term.
Newark, anxious to have any onf> but
Powers, tried to turn the tide against, him.
but when this could not be accomplished
offered Edward Tenner, first baseman of
the New York National League team, as a
compromise candidate. The proposition was
not accepted, however.
" Ires Crossed," Says Jeffries,
Speaking of Offer.
Th« report telegraphed from California
that N. S. Needham, of Coalinga, Cal.. had
offered $100,000 for the forthcoming Jeffries-
Johnson tight could find no confirmation
here yesterday. At the Jeffries Headquar
ters Sam Berjfer, speaking for the fighter.
was inclined to cast doubt upon the story.
He said:
"No telegram or communication of any
kind has b*en received from Mr. Xeedham
or any one from Coalinga or elsewhere of
fering 1100,000 for the fißht. XV"c would be
pleased to consider such an offer, but It
has not been made."
Jeffries liinipeif laughed at the story and
said: "Perhaps the wires got crossed."
Jeffrie* was out early yesterday morning
and took a brisk walk through Central
Park and up Riverside Drive. In the after
noon he made a second visit to the sur
geon who removed a growth In the right
nostril on Tuesday, to have his left nostril
cleared In similar fashion.
Berger would not comment on Johnson's
telegram asking for aii Kppolntment with
Jeffries here, to-day further than to fay
that the two men would probably meet in
the evening.
San Francisco, Oct. JT. it is reported
here to-day that for several months past
Bam Berger, manager of James J. Jeffries,
and Isadore Golden, one of the justices of
the peace in San FranelscOi have been col
laborating on a play in which Jeffries is
to appear shortly. The character of the
play eoulcl not be learned, but it is under

Princeton. X. J., Oct. 57.— -The 'varsity
football practlco this afternoon was char
acterized by an unusually lons scrim
mage, in which the work of the team
showed great Improvement. Seven touch
downs were made against th« scrub, while,
with ono exception, the 'varsity's goal line
was never in danger.
Garrett, who has been at halfback in
the last few practices, played well for the
'varsity, and Hart's line plunging was a
great aid to tit* team in advancing the
ball. Gurrrtt teems to be a coming man,
and will get a thorough tryout in the
backfield. He handled the forward pass
well and scored one of the touchdowns
tills afternoon, after receiving the ball
from Christie.
Banunan. at centre, also played unusual
ly well, getting out on tho ends for
tackles and following the ball In fine style.
In fact, the entlrA line showed more snap
and speed, and at times opened up good
holes for the backs. The work of the for
wards w,i» rather erratic, however, and
at times they seemed unable to charge
well on tho offensive, and at one time
the scruDS worked the ball steadily down
the field for fifty yards before a fumble
gave Sparks an opportunity to run ninety
five yards for a touchdown. Th<* tackling
of the forwards in ©pen field work was
Still weak.
The Use-up of the 'varsity follows:
Left end. Ballin and Van Dyke: left tackle.
Bleglinjt; left guard, Woehr; centre. Barn

McCrohan and Musser; right end. Welch;
