Macbeth gating to-day switches to the Em ?tt City track at Yonkera, where for j & next nineteen days the thorough- ' ?gfit will attempt to prove why the ??Kid should be improved. The Empire City Handicap, with ?000 added, at a mile and a furlong, has attracted nine of the best handi t?p horses in training. The feature is ?*or three-year-ulds and upward and the JUBC?c?s Stable is making a bid with -, )ess than three. Trainer Sam Hil freth has nominated Mad Hatter, Grey ug'and Thunderclap. Grey Lag has proved himself the king ?jn of the three-year-olds. Mad Hatter is believed to be one of the very greatest Sorses in training for a sprint or over tbe route, and though he has been ?aked to pick up 132 pounds he is sure to have hi? following. Thunderclap is ? horse of a wonderful turn of speed, -nxi with the other high class pair gives 'H'ldreth a third string to his bow that cs'nnot he lightly regarded. But the Rancocas Stable is not nkely to have any cake-walk of it. The For? eign Stable's Audacious, which already has lowered Man o' War's record for a distance, has a pull in the weights from Mad Hatter and is likely to give Kildreth's star the battle of his life. Also there is Lanius, which ran a won? derful race the other day, Charlie Stoneham's Yeliow Hand, George W. Loft's Donnaconna, J. S. Cosden's Blues and Royce Rools. Every entrant fess a shew for the money; it should )k one of the best stakes ever con tinted at Empire City. The getaway from Aqueduct was ? nothing to tell the folks back home. Only one favorite won and he was ?eld so closely by the oralists that the good men mostly shot all around him. This was Sennings Park, which was backed from 2 to 5 to 7 to 20. Sedgefield a Surprise One of the very biggest surprises of the meeting developed in the feature race, the Speculation Handicap at a mile, which was won by R. T. Wilson's Sed afield. T h i s unmannerly equine lay off the early pace after breaking weli in the small field. Valor, the warm favorite, went out as if to kill off all the others, but toward the end he tired wider his heavy impost. When Ned jdam chucked it after six furlongs ut? ile S. Builman made his move with Sedgefield. Builman, by the way, put up a finish that would have been a credit to a Tod Sloan at his best. At the eighth pole he moved up as if to j?tne on the inside and when Sande ^TCged over with the favorite the kid 'jhot quickly to the outside and en "Tra-red him in a real duel. As a matter ;r?? fact, little Bullman outrode the pre? mier jockey. A far different ride was that which Sande showed in the closing;' race of five furlongs when he landed John E. Madden's Surf Rider a victor over the Glen Riddle Farm's Oceanic by a scant nose. Sarde put up a $10,000,000 fin? ish on the Madden gelding. Incident? ally, he spoiled one of the biggest coups of the year. The public was down hook, line and Binker on Louis Feustel's good thing, which had been outworking1 Dream of the Valley. Though it was the first time Oceanic had ever gone to the post the laymen boarded him with assurance such as they used to display when Man o War answered the bugle. That he didn't win was not his fault. Coltiletti rode like a shoemaker. He was floun? dering all over his mount in attempting to use the whip. Sande showed up the Italian as a veritable novice. Uses Poor Judgment Had Coltiletti sat still from the fur? long pole home he couldn't possibly have lost. Hyperbole, a long shot, won the open? ing dash of five furlongs. The favor? ite, Maggie Murphy, was ironing over the winner at the end and would have won buck-jumping had she not been ?loughed at the elbow and knocked back haif a dozen lengths. Fair Mac and Le Cyprin both fell ?arly in the steeplechase and there was no contention for Saywhich, which won ?? he pleased. Brady remounted Fair Mac and finished the race, many min? utes after the first numbers had been hong up, for third money. Senmng? Park had the time of his ?fe to catch Per. Rose in the third race, ? ?even furlongs. Sande rated* this odds-on favorite off the early pace, but had to drive like a Jehu through the last furlong. Sande, the most popular jockey now appearing under silks, had three mounts auring the day, with which he won two races and again finished second. His wonderful ride on Surf Rider has been jr**p ?f*. had he put up such a spir? ited finish with Valor, in the feature J*ce? he might have saved the biscuits, un this occasion, however, little Bull ?"*,n with Sedgefield clearly outrode we champion at the finish.

(Copyright, 19&?, New York Tribune Inc.) That Battered Right The next problem that Carpentier faces isn't a new American op? ponent or any diminution of his colossal popularity, one of the most amazing; things of sport. There is still enough talent over here outside of Dempsey and enough fight enthusiasm to present him another packed house any time he cares to start Carpentier's problem now has to do with that battered right fist. Once a hand begins to crum?l? up there is always danger that the crum? pling process will develop again at any stated interval in the wake of a heavy blow. To Be Watched This mauling right of Carpentier's must now be carefully watched. He has so much power in his punch that only a tough fist can stand the strain. Fits started skidding when his hands began to give way, and in his second fight with Jim Jeffries he finished with both hands badly shattered, no longer fit for any punishing effect. Carpentier is fast, skillful and courageous, but no one could call him rugged. His skin is easily cut and his body easily hurt. The fact that he has the gameness to weather an armful of punishment doesn't mean he has any great toughness of fiber or durability of bone and flesh. But unless this right hand buckles up again, he will make any man this side of the champion show quite a bit to win. Willard's Chance Willard's chance against Dempsey rests upon two foundations. In the first instance, he should get the best possible trainer available, and then give the best he has to reach the top form of boxing skill and physical condition. In the second instance, he must enter the ring in a frame of mind that carries grim determination to wipe out the Toledo returns. Willard, after a long, hard and correct training siege, determined to win, would have a better chance against the champion than any one else, except possibly Wills. If Willard had the will to go out and win?a little more flame of soul ?his tremendous bulk and power would be sufficient to turn the tide, even against greater speed and skill. But whether a boxer as lazy, both mentally and physically, as Willard happens to be can ever get keyed up to the proper whirl is another affair. Stopping the Champion Dempsey's one weak link in a mighty chain is lack of any unusual de? fensive skill. Willard never attempted to hit him until his brain was scrambled, but Brennan had no great trouble in landing, while Carpentier set him? self for at least two right-hand swings that dropped squarely and cleanly upon the jaw. Dempsey has shown that he can take a lot, but whether he could be hit with the full power of a Willard or a Wills is debatable. It would at least be quite different than the lighter artillery of Brennan and the Frenchman. It is hardly in reason to expect that any one who depends so much upon offensive qualities should also be a master of defense, since the two qualities are totally unalike. Dempsey's claim that he was not hurt by Carpentier's second round barrage of high explosive is easily explained. He was keyed to the point where his sub-conscious reaction failed to record any pain. We broke a shoulder blade once in a football game, but being highly keyed up at the moment felt no pain of any sort, and it was only when the arm refused to be lifted that we had any inkling of the wreckage. Many have been badly hurt in the keen mental stress of competition without feeling the slightest pain until some time afterward, when the stirred up mental excitement had passed away. It is easily possible that Dempsey might be knocked flat without feel? ing the slightest pain. He might be knocked flat and imagine that he had merely slipped. Such things have happened. Ask any old football player. But that doesn't mean that at one moment in the battle the cham? pion was not within a short lurch of visiting the resin for a spell. Single G. Paces Two Fast Miles In Final Feature CLEVELAND, July 8.?Pacing the fastest time of the year, Singlo G., owned by W. B. Barefoott, of Cam? bridge City, Ind., defeated one of the. most formidable fields of pacers in training to-day in the free-for-all pace sweepstakes, the feature of the get? away Grand Circuit card at North Ran? dall. His victory came in straight heats. Ed Allen took the veteran out in front early in each mile and never was headed. He paced the first mile in 2:01% and the second in 2:02^4, win? ning easily. The last quarter of the final heat was paced in 29 seconds. The time for the two miles not only is the fastest paced but also beats that of the trotter3 for the season. Hal Malone furnished the only com? petition, but he was not good enough to worry Single G, an odds-on favorite. Single G sold for $200 in a ??80 auc? tion pool. Peter Beiler was the only other favorite to win. For the first time since Union Trot? ting Association rules governed harn? ess horse racing in this circuit all of to-day's winners came in straight heats. Moran and Martin Ready For Bout in the Bronx Reports from the training camp of Bob Martin at Summit, N. J., would seem to indicate that Prank Moran will have a big job on his hands when he clashes with Martin at the Boxing Drome, 167th Street and Westchester Avenue, on Tuesday night. The dough? boy champion has batter. 1 Gunboat Smith and Mexican Joe Lawson, and now he is tuning up for speed with Jack Britton and Freddie Welsh. Moran reports from Saratoga Springs that he is already on edge and will finish his training to-morrow after? noon. He is coming to New York Mon? day evening. The test means much to Moran. He must win or lose all his chances of a meeting with Carpentier. ? ? ? Record Crowd Expected To See Scots at Soccer Preparations are being made to han? dle a record crowd of 20,000 at the in? ternational soccer football match to be played to-morrow afternoon at the West Side Park in Jersey City, the occasion being the American debut of the Third Lanark, first division Scot? tish League team. The invaders will be opposed by the formidable Jersey Celtics, members of the new American Soccer League. The Third Lanark aggregation is the first professional soccer team to come to these shores. They represent the epitome of the sport on the Continent. On their recent Canadian tour the Scots cleaned up to the extent of fif? teen straight victories. Collegians in Water Polo Game An all-star aggregation ?? college players will form one of the teams that will play in the water polo game that will feature the aquatic meet in the Brighton Beach Baths pool a week from to-day. The line-up of this squad will contain some of the best players in the collegiate ranks. Quogiie Yachtsmen Plan Many Races Starting To-day QUOGUE, L. I., July 8.?Yachting enthusiasm among the summer resi? dents of the Hamptons and vicinity is keen this year and much interest has been shown in the program of cham? pionship races arranged by the West hampton Country Club Yacht Squad? ron, of which Lewis E. Pierson is presi? dent. There will be a series of eight races for the championship, for seven classes of yachts. The first will be held to? morrow afternoon and the others on succeeding Saturdays until August 27. Residents at Speonk have manifested a strong desire to have the contests held off Speonk Point and have under? taken to provide facilities to- make them successful. Arrangments have been made to con? vey spectators and participants from the train which arrives at Speonk from New York at 2:55 o'clock, to the dock in time for the races to bepin. The races will be sailed over a triangular couTse of ten miles so mapped out that the boats will be visible from the point at all times. To Split Baseball Season FLINT, Mich., July 8.?Clubs of the Michigan-Ontario Baseball League have voted to split the championship season, beginning the second pennant race of the year next Monday. The move was prompted by the fact that London, Ont., had so far outdistanced other clubs of the circuit that lack of interest threatened disaster to some of the clubs.

No Color line For Dempsey, Savs Manager Omaha Statement of Cham? pion Refers to Johnson Only, According to Keams By Jack Lawrence Jack Kearns, manager of Jnck Demp? sey, said last night at the Hotel Bel mont that the conqeror of Georges Carpentier was probably misquoted in dispatches received here from Omaha, in which the heavyweight champion was reported to have said that he had drawn the color line and would meet no colored aspirants for his fistic crown. Kearns declared that the statements allaged to have been made by the champion to reporters at Omaha, where he made a brief stop yesterday en route to Salt Lake City, tho home of his mother, referred solely to Jack Johnson, and that in a hasty inter? view they were taken to include all colored fighters. Johnson, who defeated James J. Jef? fries, former heavyweight champion will be released from Leavenwortr prison on Monday, having served t term there for violation of the Manr act. He is reported to have bene?tec physically by his stay behind bars an< is anxious to re?nter the ring. Hi) weight at the present time is said t< be under that at which he won thi heavyweight title from Jeffries. The Omaha Statement The Omaha dispatches quote Demp sey as saying that he was "unwillin. to fight Jack Johnson or any othe negro fighter." The quoted statement folloWB: "I will never meet a colored mai Theve is nothing to this talk of m meeting Jack Johnson. I am confider that the public does not want this figh and while I will govern myself to large extent according to tho wishes < the public, I can*t see my way clear i fight Johnson or any other color? man. I will meet any one else thi Jack Kearns picks for me. Gibbon I understand, is a good man, althoup I have never seen him work. As have drawn the color line, I am free say that I think Harry Wills is a gre; fighter, who will whip the very best them. As for Willard, I'll fight hi any time?and beat him, too." In the opinion of Jack Kearns the statements are taken to allude only Johnson, with whom Kearns says 1 will have no dealings. The champioi manager takes the view that Johns< would be a poor drawing card in t East, and that his appearance in the parts might do the game an irreps able injury. So far as Kearns is cfl cerned, Johnson may paddle his o\ canoe, but he will never be seen with a roped square with Jack Dempsey. "It isn't a question of drawing color line," said Kearns. "Johnson too old and has a past which refiei no credit on the boxing game. T public could not be expected to ta seriously a bout in which he was principal. Johnson's reappearance the ?Lstic horizon is more of a jt than anything else right now. Jt Dempsey is willing to meet any m in the world who has a just claim a battle with him, but he has not ; reached the point where he is for( to wait at the gates of Leavenwo; prison for an opponent." Confers With Greb's Manager Tex Packard, promoter of the Der sey-Carpentier battle, said last ni| that he had not arranged for the appearance of either Jack Dempsey Georges Carpentier in the ting, among the wiseacres at Madison Squ Garden it was said that Rickard i George Er.gle, manager of Harry Gi had held a long conference yesterc in which arrangements were made t j practically clinches a bout between j Pittsburg scrapper and the Frenchm This fight, according to unofl Turf Losses Cannot Be Deducted in Tax Return? Court Rules A LBANYTjuly 8.?Th* Appellate Division of the Supreme Court, in a decision announced to-day, held i that losses Buffered in betting on horse races cannot be deducted from the New York State income tax re? turns. . The decision affirmed the State Controller in rejecting a deduction claim of $5,000 made by Gustave Konigswald, of New York, which he reported he lout on horse races. In opposing the deduction, the Attorney General's department, rep? resenting the Controller, contended Konigswald lost his money in an il? legal transaction, and it would be against public policy to ?How the claim. *?-:-._I dope, is to be held in Jersey City on October 12. At Carpentier's camp last night it appeared to be taken for granted that Georges is to fight again on October 12, and while Deschamps would make no definite statement on the subject, it was freely stated about Manhasset that the other man in the ring on that date will be Harry Greb. The battling poilu went swimming yes? terday off the float of the Manhasset Bay Yacht Club, at Port Washington. Later he returned to his camp and complained that his right hand, in? jured in his fight with Dempsey, was paining him. Attach?s of the camp said that Car? pentier would return to this country from France in time to put in three weeks of intensive training before his Columbus Day battle. Dempsey Claims He Gave Manager Over $100 for Cook ATLANTIC CTY, July 8.?Edison Hedges, attorney for Mrs. Carry E. Barrett, camp mother at Jack Demp sey's training camp at Airport, to-day ! made public the following telegram which he said Mrs. Barrett had re? ceived from the champion: "I have read that you only received $100. This cannot be true, as I gave them more than that to pay you. If this story is true, however, wire nje at once at my expense and I will see that the matter is fixed up." Hedges said that "theni" in the sec? ond sentence of the telegram referred to Jack Kearns and Teddy Hayes. Before the telegram had been re? ceived Hedges had instituted suit in the District Court, on behalf of Mrs. Barrett, to collect $400 alleged to be due. Kearns and Dempsey wer-3 named as defendants in the action. In her complaint Mrs. Barrett al? leges that her services were reasonably worth $60 a week, and that she had re? ceived but $100 on account. This was the sum for which Kearns handed Mrs. Barrett a check just before leaving the camp, telling her not to look at it until after they had gone, as it contained a surprise for her. m Gibbons Has No Offer To Fight Girpentier CHICAGO, July 8.-?Tex Rickard has made no offer to Tommy Gibbons for a match with Georges Carpentier, Eddie Kane, Gibbons's manager said to-day, as he left for Osakis, Minn., to join Gibbons, who is taking a vacation there. "I've read a lot about such a match, but have heard nothing from Riekard," said Kane. "I'll sign for a Gibbons-Car pentier match if I get the right terms, but I don't want to talk about it for at 1 least three weeks."

Bader, when questioned con? cerning the matter, replied: "I heard the rumor before." "Is it true?" he was asked. "I'd prefer any announcement In the matter to come from Dempsey," he re? plied. During' Dempsey's training here the Mayor was very intimate with the champion, and was Jack's guest the aft? ernoon of the fight. He made a speech before a gathering of moticn picture magnates here two night9 a?-o, in the course of which he described Dempsey as being the greatest fighter in the world. Significance is attached to the fact that Kearns did not accompany the champion on his trio West and to the wire sent here by Dempsey to-day to the effect that he would make good any money which Kearns had not paid his housekeeper. Bader stated that if he accepted the position it would not be necessary for him to resign as Mayor of Atlantic City. _ Maryland Board Rules Track Chiefs May Make Rejections Stete Racing Commission Adopts Resolution Making License of Doubtful Value j Special Dispatch to The Tribun?

Shilling as a jockey, that if they refuse to permit them to enter on the racetracks the Racing Commis? sion will not back up the licensees. Carville D.

Don't Get A "Factory Second" When You Get Your Second Straw Today the* market is flooded with CHeap Straws, Split Sennits* Imitation Leathers and Factory Seconds. There are always a number of so-called merchants who prepare in advance for a mark down sale by purchasing job lots of "junk" to mix with the stock carried over in order to tempt the bargain hunter with "Price Bait," This year I broke all records in the Hat business. Three weeks after my opening announcement my shelves were as bare as "Mother Hubbard's Cupboard," I didn't have anything to carry over. Now I have got a stock of new, crisp, fresh straws with more com? ing in from the factory every day, and every new "1922 model," including the now famous "STYLARK," are all reduced to one price?$1.95. Special Today I guessed right on the "STYLARK" and didn't Have Half enougfi. I guessed wrong on the "PINEAPPLE" and had too many? One Hat is just as good as the other, but the style is different. If you like the "PINEAPPLE" as well as I do it's a wonderful buy for 95c Stores Everywhere. See Telephone Directory.
