The mild criticism of the National Lawn

Issued to Australia for the Dwight F.

w three Tribune readers to rush to the

cannot be represented by the strongest
players it should not bo represented at

rather than send out a team that in all
jirobanility would discredit the sport hero.

case it throws a different Hjrht on the con
troversy and one that does not reflect to
the credit at any one concerned. The ex
nen:-e of ponding a te^m around the world
is to be considered, perhaps, but a challeng
ing team, supported as it should be by fol
lowers of the sport, should he willing to
take chances on its share of the "grate" for
the matches, without calling: upon the de
fending country to gxtaiaiitee the cost. The
"You pay the freight a:;d we will challenge
for the- trophy" idoa savors :■•<' much ••:" pro
fessionalism and makes the truest for the.
cup too modi of a Junketing tr'p. I am
told that a guarantee was ottered to the as
sociation hen If the English "and American
teams would play off the preliminary ties
in Australia, and that it was refused. Fur
ther, that no guarantee was demanded on
the Issuance of the challenge, beyond the
understanding Chat the visiting team should
«hare in the receipts far the matches. which.
of course. woulJ apply only to the evpenses
of the men. Under the circumstances, then,
the two cases are not parallel, and thl;«
country, even by stndir.tr its third best
team to complete the challenge in the spirit
in which it was sent, would not have been
open to a complaint from the Australians
that they were being .ailed upon "to pay a
first rate price for ■ second rate article."
If the <Mants can hold the Chicago Cubs
at hay in the s-'rks which begins on Thurs
day the chances are In favor of their finish-
Ing second In the National League race.
With all hoj>e gone for the pennant, and
with th' Cubs already acclaimed champions
of the league, interest still remain? in tue
keen fight with the Ptttshuifj Pirates for
swxmd honors. The Giants will have the
advantage of playing; most of their remain
ing games on home si"i;nds. whereas the
Pirates will be on the road. Philadelphia
is likely to give Plttsburs; a hard battle,
and the Buperbas. 100, if they play the ball
of which they are capable, should help New
York by taking one or more games. Boston
helped a little on Saturday. Ex - cry once in
a while the Doves play a game that makes
one wonder why they are struggling along
in the mire. The Cubs have won the ma
jority of their games with the. Giants this
year, but there is no love lost between the
two teams, and the New York men are Kure
to work hard to got what little consolation
is possible out of every little victory over
a team that has done more than any other
i<-> keep the pennant away from the polo
Grounds.
The series of six games with Pittsburg
last week shewed conclusively that the
Giants, while beaten (or the pennant, arc no
whit discouraged. There v.as plenty of life,
and ginger in every content and the "fans"
turned out in mvcfi better numbers than in
the previous week to lend encouragement.
I was sorry to see McGraw lose his temper
on Friday and show it by tossing every
thing be could reach into the air. as if to in
vile certain banishment from the coacliing
lines, where be was needed. O*Dey*s judg
ment of the ball on which he called Doyle,
out on strikes did not appear to be pood,
bat it was hardly an excuse for such a
strenuous objection, particularly as it In
cited many in the crowd to voice their ap
proval and encouragement. The umpire is
ti-. natural enemy of every dyed in the wool
■•fan'" who. It w<.ul<l appear, ones no chance
to jeer «rxl revile any derision that seem
ingly is acainst the home team. Tt is this,
however, v i,;. ii drives so many fair minded
Persons away from baseball. Although Mc
<Jraw may have felt justified in objecting to
the decision thai looked anything but fair,
lie did it at the expense of arousing th«
more, rabid onlookers to a show of feeling
which, when carried too far. has brought
and will continue to bring much discredit
on the sport.
While the post-season series between the
Giants and the Yankees is not definitely
settled, at I rest so far as the "fans" know.
a meeting • between- the two local clubs
peems reasonably - as there appears
to be a "growing"* demand for the much
mooted question as to the relative ability
of the two nines to be settled. These
games would be the more interesting if
the Yankees and the Giants finish second
in their respective Iracrues. as now looks
probable. Both teams have plenty of hard
work ahead of them, as their margin this
morning over their nearest rivals is not
big enough to make the places look sure.
It is this fight for second place in both
leagues that is adding interest, particularly
here in New York, to the fag end days of
the baseball season.
The followers of the Yankees have rea
son to applaud the fighting spirit of the
men who. keep on giving of their best in
the gamest possible manner, as if a pen
nant were to be won. With the Red Sox
rather weak in pitchers, the Detroit Tigers
are the ones to be feared in the struggle
for second honors. The series in Detroit.
which begins on September 36. is likely
to nettle the issue. Russell Ford, who
stands out to-day as the Matty of the
American League, won his twenty-second
victory on Saturday against St. I^ouis. The
record for his first year in major league
company Is remarkable. He has lost only
sis games and is pitching quite as strongly
and consistently as. if not more so than,
when the season opened, in April. He has
now won eight games In succession, and
should be counted on for two or three more.
If the Giants and the Yankees meet in the
post-season series it is hoped that the
"fans" may be treated to a battle between
Matty and Ford.

A number of interpretations were

The following w<-re some of the inter

The ball slui.il not be considered In pos-

grasp of i.;<- player, and no penalty «haH
be inflicted until the ball actually leaves

rftstriotiutis on the frrw.rd pass. It was
decided that th*> pass must be made, five
yards beck of the Hoe of scrimmage, end
can go twenty yards beyond the line of
scrimmage, but need not cross It.
Regarding th» firing tackle," It was
interpreted that the rules governing th*
tackle shall not prevent the defensive
players from diving into the mterfexenc*.

NEW-YORK DATLY TRIBUNE, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, l^O-
Football *Rules Hard to Sol-Ve
Slight Differences in Interpretation Likely to
Cause Future Trouble.
Although the "interpretation" meeting
which was held by the football rules com
mittee In the Hotel Manhattan on Satur
day night did a great deal in the way of
clarifying the new playing code both for
th© players snd officials, there 'is not the
slightest doubt that it will he necessary
to call further meetings or make known by
publication many point* which were only
partly explained at tiie meeting. In
fact, it was the opinion of many who at
tended the conference that it v. ill not be
until the rules have beer, actually tested
\v. a few panics that anything like order
will be brought forth from the chaos into
which the revisions have plunged essential
features of the game.
It also came out that in drawing up the [
recently published code for the coming
season many, or at least a number, of little
things slipped into the rules through over- |
sight which have not yet come to the sur
face, but which will probably boh up at
the least expected moment. One was dis
covered and explained at the meeting. This
is the section of Rule 20 having to do with ;
kicks other than kickoffs or klckouts
or free kick-. The wording of the rule !
says that such kicks must he made at
least five, yartis behind the line of scrim
mage, and this, of course, made it impos
sible to have any sort of a return kick.
Walter Camp, in .addressing the meeting
on this point, said that it had not been
the intention of the rules committee to

many cruises, together with tha logs. The
models ar«* built to a scale of three-eighths
of an inch to the foot, and represent the
highest type of work.

eliminate the return kick, and for that
reason it was recommended by the special
sub-committee that a return kick be pro
vided for in the section mentioned by ad
ding, after the word free kick, "excepting a
return kick."
Section 8 of Rule % is likely to prove
a knotty problem, for there were several
questions asked at the meeting which
showed that on some fields the preliminary
practice has already made the rule against
the flying tackle capable of misinterpre
tation. For instance, ope man said that it
might be possible to train the players so
that when they were making a tackle tln\v
could dr*-,- one foot along the ground.
That would he living up to 1 1 1 •- letter of
the rule, although it would be a palpable
evasion of the spirit, for the man about
to make the tackle could have almost as
much momentum as he would have had
under the old Hying tackle. This was
passed over, however, ami will probably
be brought out again later.
As is usual at such meetings, there were
a great many inconsequential questions
asked which were settled by a word. But
there were others which brought out
hitherto unthought-of plays. It was de
cided that until the changes have been
formally passed upon by the rules com
mittee their use be left entirely to the
discretion of the officials, for In their pres
ent form the recommendations carry little
or no weight.
YACHTS St LAST RACE
Grayjacket Wins Final Regatta
of Season at Atlantic Y. C.
Showing a clear, pair of heels. Grayjack
et. F. C. Noble's yacht, won the postponed
race or the Atlantic Yacht dub yesterday
over the Gravescrid Bay course.
As the yachting season is practically at
an end. Horace E. Boucher, chairman of
the recatta committee of the ciub, after
conferring with the owners of the craft
interested. decided to sail off the post-
red race of Saturday. Yachts or the Q.
S and handicap divisions wore the only
ones that started, and the boats eligible
were the ones that had sailed in the race
on the preceding day.
The start was made in the morning, and
the coarse was twice around marks off Sea
Gate. Buoy N<>. 11. Fort Hamilton and
Benaonhnrst. The wind was southwest
and was of a good, whole-sail strength
throughout. The Q division was the first
away. and. with the exception of the More
Joy. all the boats that had raced on Sat
urday Crossed the starting line. The Gray-
Jacket, the leading craft In the postponed
race, had no trouble in winning the prize.
Class S and the handicap divisions start
ed together, and sailed the same course
as the larger yachts. The Bensonhurst
was the winner among the S boats, and on
corrected time Ija Cubana won In the first
division of the handicap class. The second
division was taken by the Breeze. The
race «as the final regatta of the Lower
Bay season, and the twelfth contest to
count in the yacht racing championship of

GOLFERS AGAIN RESTLESS
West Suggests the Formation of
National Golf Association.
EAST WILL NOT CO-OPERATE
Intercollegiate Championship Be
gins To-day at Manchester,
Mass., Links.
Hiu'lrn behind the smiles and congratu-
Istory speeches immediately following the
Rriftn of the national amateur jrolf cham
pionship tournament at the Country «"lub.
Brookline. Mass.. ««n Saturday., lurked feel
ings of uiirrsl As usual When anything
happens to disturb the serenity of United
States <ioif Association affair.s. It is nor
difficult to dis- over the cause. The West,
the vi!d and untamed. Is once again on
the rampage.
Several sectional organizations, in<-!;;ding
the Massachusetts, .Metropolitan and West
ern Pennsylvania asso lattoas, ha\e re
ceived circular < .-ommunkations from the
West asking for co-operation in the forma
tion of h proposed body to 1*? known as the
National Golf Association.
Henry Fownea, of Pfttsbara*. wbe wit
nessed the success of his nephew in the
decisive match ;i«.iinst Warren K. Wood,
was outspoken in iwianl to tiie latest
Western agitation. He said:
'At a recent meeting of the Western
Pennsylvania Golf Association tiie national
proposition was arted on, and \v<' promptly
voted to have none of It. I think any i=uch
movement toward the formation of another
ratio?-:ii organization would be a serious
mistake."
others who cared to discuss the mutter
vf terday spoke in the same vein, and it Is
certain the proposition wUJ receive no cn
cour&emeni In the Ka«t.
Tiie main cause for discontent on the part
of the dissatisfied element is the failure uC
al! clube in the parent body to secure voting
representation. This was lhrashed out
pretty thoroughly last whiter, when the
constitution ol the United State* Golf As
sociation \\<t<= revised fan a manner appar
ently satisfying to the West.
An executive committee meeting of the,
United States Golf Association was held at
the country Club on Saturday, when the
Skokie Country Club, of GU-n'-oe. ill., was
transferred from aUicd to active, or voting
membership.
The Nashville Golf Club was elected an
allied member. A draft of a special set
of rules to govern bogie competitions was
presented, hut no action further than ac
cepting: the report was taken, except that
the committee; voted to have the rules sab
mitted to the delegates at the annual meet
ing to be held at Chicago on January 14.
Heretofore the national body had refund
to recognize the need for a set of bogie
rules, but it seems to have at last yielded
to pressure.
The competitive attraction this week will
consist of the annual intercollegiate cham
pionship tournament, scheduled to begin to
day on the links of the Esses County
Club. Manchester, Mass.
Not a few of the younger set that com
peted in the national at Bronkline last
•week have shifted over to Manchester.
They Include Albert Beckel. of "Princeton,
the intercollegiate, champion, and Robert
A. Gardner, the Tale player, who parted
with his national title through inability to
qualify last Tuesday. Team matches will
claim attention the first three days, and the
individual the remainder of the- week. Talc
had an easy time winning tram honors a
year ago. and the Blue seems fully as
strong this season.
The discussion as to whether W. C.
Fownes. jr.. the. new national champion, Is
an Eastern or a Western golfer has been
started afresh.
The champion, although a director in the
Western Golf Association, is also identified
with several others. First and foremost, he
is loyal to the United States Golf Associa
tion. Last fall he played on the Pennsyl
vania team in the Lesley cup matches at
Huntingdon Valley. This intercity affair,
until the formation of the Pennsylvania
State Association, was confined to New
York, Philadelphia and Boston teams.
Fownes himself says that Pennsylvania is
an Eastern state. His final words were:
"Pennsylvania extends to the Atlantic
Ocean, and that's about as far east as you
can get."
Handicap lists are becoming more general
each year. The Philadelphia Golf Associa
tion started the ball a-rolling in the Key
stone State, and a few months ago ratings
were also compiled for Plttsburgers. Now.
it is understood, arrangements a/c under
way with a view to drafting an official
handicap list for the entire State of Penn
sylvania.
Apropos of handicap?. 3.317 names appear
on the fall list of the Massachusetts Golf
Association, showing an increase of nearly
three hundred since the spring issue.
The present list represents an entir« re
vision. There are seven players at scratch,
as follows: J. G. Anderson, T. M. Claflin.
Percival Gilbert. A. G. Ix>ckwood. H. W.
Stucklea, P. W. "Whittemore and H. H.
Wilder.
During the national tournament a man
whose ideas on the game were as positive
as they were limited got into an amusing
argument. He reached the course in time
to become one of the gallery which
swarmed along behind Fownes and "Chick"
Evans in the semi-final round.
When they came to the short seventh
hole the visitor remarked: "T suppose 2 is
bogle here." "Oh, my, no," replied his
friend, who then proceeded to explain why
bogie 2s were impossible. Still the other
remained unconvinced, and a moment later,
when Evans supplemented a fine mashie
shot by holing a long put for a 2, the vis
itor turned to his companion with a scorn
ful look which seemed to say: "I knew I
was right."
It will be some time before Robert C
Watson, secretary of the- United States Golf
Association, will be seen at Ms office in
this city. Immediately after the decisive
championship ma:ch the secretary, accom
panied by Mrs. Watson and a party of
friends, Started for Canada. Ills prewcrv©

arrives the biff same will Buffer.
