?*4nzac** Anderson Easily Disposes of Francis T.

in Match That Leaves Both in State of Collapse
By Fred Hawthorne
PHILADELPHIA. "Sept. 15?William T. Tilden 2d, the playing?
.??rough national champion, removed another obstacle from his path'this
fentoon in the fifth round of the national singles lawn tennis champion
?ip tournament on the courts of the Germantown Cricket Club at TVIann
fa, by defeating: Major F. Gordon Low?, of England, by a score of
^4, t?-S, 0-4- This victory placed the tall title holder in the semi
-?nl round where, to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, he will meet Willis
?)?vis. of California.
Davis eliminated Robert G. Ki-.c..

^ inexcusable "nets" on easy shots

Mj srro'-s? great guns at this sta/ct,

wy through the next three, giving- him

Slwling Volleying Exchange
The anal point was featured by a siz
jij?g volleying exchange from clos'-: to
tie "et. s0 close that the two men al
?ao?t touched racquets at times. The
jgjj went back and forth so rapidly
??at '?' was difficult to follow- its flight.
gd it ended when Kinsey's last shot
?bund the net.
Davis had a cramp in his arm dur
au the last set, but Einsey, immedi
jtily after the last point, sank to tho
iroiir.d. the victim of a severe cramp

jack it ont to the enc.
}. 0. Anderson, the tall "Anzac'' who
kynned the gallery yesterday by his
?nsa?onal defeat of Norris Williams,
jgvanced a step further to-day by
?jiking the measure of Francia T. Hun
?r, of New York, by a score of (3?1
i-3, 6?4, the aggressive strength of
jis game impressing the onluokers.
?s-morrow a/ternoon at 4 o'clock, on
?ie championship court, Anderson will
?fuese Wallace F. Johnson, of Phila
klphia, in the struggle to gain the
iaal round bracket in the upper half.
Biddle Proves Easy for Johnson
The crafty, chopping Johnson came
?rough., this afternoon by defeating
?e veteran ("raig Biddle, of Phila
ialphia, by s score 6?0, 6-3, 6?4,
sever being extended to his limit, al
?ough in the last set Biddle, by clos?
ing in quickly at the net, cut off many
of his opponent's returns by fine vol
ifing and gained a lead of 3?0 before
se tired.
Although the result of Tilden's match
vith the veteran Lowe was accepted by
?A? galiery as a foregone conclusion j
before the two men stepped on the j
?rourt, the attendance was surprisingly !
*ood, particularly when you take into
consideration the let-down from the
anr.is quality flashed in the Johnston-]
Bichar?s and Tilden-Johnston matches,;
on Tuesday and Wednesday. There is i
jo other meaning to place upon this I
?atere?; than that Philadelphia is one !
of the peatest tennis cities in this
country, and the extremely skillful
manif-jt-meat of the tournament, under
.he directorship of Samuel C. Collom,
?>t the tournament committee: Julian
[i ?fyriei, president of the U. 3. L. T.
L; Edwin F. Tovrey, vice-president;
,'. M. Jennings, treasurer, and Clifford
llack, president of the National Um
?ir&s' Association, has done much to
aari?h this interest.
Love began the service in the match
sjatr.at Tilden and won his game as
-ilden notted twice, drove a cannonbau
net back of the base line once and was
tai cleanly by the sphinx-like Eng
ishmar. on a beautiful backhand drive
aa the last point. Thereafter they al?
?nate?* in winning on service up to
:k? fifth game, where the champion
5?ke through. Lowe double-faulting
ra the final point.
t was evident that Tilden was thor
OQghly enjoying this match. Confident
a his ability to repulse every effort o'
iii rival to obtain anything that rc
it?bled a serious lead, the title holder
raped along, occasionally flashing a
?seteoric brand of tennis, during which
k treated the gallery to every con
reivg'oie variety of shot and from every
swrtion in the court.
I.owe St??ic;al and impassive
Lowe is a man who has played his
'??iinis on every famous court in the
?orld and a veteran who has measured
?kill with all the great players of the
wesent and the past. He did not allow
Tilden's lightning change of tactics to
raffle him in the least, but, on the con
'??ry, played on without allowing the
'lichtest change of expression to show
rn his facp. Success or failure, satis
wtion or disappointment as the poincs
'?re won and lost, it was all in the
y'a.work, if you were to judge by the
iflfliah star's attitude.
The feature of Lowe's play, as I saw
?i was the amazing control he wielded
?n his backhand a::?:-'ns. It was the
?ypically Enghsh backhand, with the j
*H>t in front, and it recalled the1
to?t Tony Wilding in the ease and
P?ee with which the shot was exe?
rted.
, It was practically out of the question !
;?? Tilden to wait for Lowe to err on |
???Je shots; as well expect a machine '
?.ak:p a rhythm or two. And the)
ar-tish Isles representative was almost-j
^deadly on his forehand ground1
'frotes. Overhead, he was pretty con- '
"?Untly accurate, but with no sever- ?
???> ?nd h;s volleying, except when he
Bt into range early, was not up to the
rMtof his game.
There were time? when Tilden ac
^Pted the issue from,, backcourt and
???Uiiged his opponent in fierce driv?
?t Many of these passages our
?Umpion won, but when he did it was
fiuady on his excessive speed and a
rushing shot for the ace. If the ral
f8 continued for any great length of
Z*9 the unswervintr steadiness of
"?*? would win for him.
, ??ter taking the first set at 6?4 as

*iii tJm swa?nped the Englishman,

Third Game Whirlwind of Action
The third set-began with a furiously*
fought de?co game, with the play-in??
almost entirely from backcourrt. Til

"cannon balls" with great coolness r.r.d
finally broke through, to lead at 1?0.
Tilden retaliated savagely and then ;
look the third game on his own service, i
Lowe amazed the gallery by winning !
the fourth at "love," serving three
beautiful aces, with Tilden not even
touching the ball. The champion came
back wickedly, taking the next two
games, only to see Major Lowe square
the set by winning the next two for
4?all. Two keenly fought deuce games
followed. Tilden winning them both, for
the set and match.
The final point was a brilliant block
volley of one of Lowe's vicious low
drives, Tilden executing the shot with
such dazziing skill that the ball just
had life enough to limp over the net,
and "died" before the Englishman could
even start for it.

Expect Exterminator to Have
Walk-Over Against Be??so
lar; Houdini 1st in ''Chase
j . -
By W. J. Macbeth
The annual fall mooting: of the Wcst
chester Racing: Association, which has
been conducted nt Belmont Park the
last two weeks, will terminate this aft?
ernoon. To-morrow the thoroughbreds
will be seen at Aqueduct irr the opening
'of a meeting which is to continue for
two weeks.
It jvas expected that the Belmont
i meeting would close in a blase of glory,
j as what should have been one of the
I very strongest features of the entire
i meeting had been retained for closing
j day. This, the Autumn Geld Cup, at
two mile;., was calculated to bring out
I horses fitted to prove their stamina and
j endurance, which was the main idea of
I thoroughbred racing some twenty years
j ago.
Evidently conditiona have changed,
and trainers and owners now regard
sprinting ability as the only test for
thoroughbred greatness. The Autnmn
Gold Cup this afternoon is bound to bo
a joke. There have been only two nom?
inations. Willis Sharpe Kilmer's old
p-elding Exterminator and W. A. Mar?
tin's mare Bellsolar are the only ones
named. Exterminator is a stake horse,
Bellsoiar a plater, though a *?ood one.
Such a field does not strike one as a
race. It appeals as next to a walk?
over.'
Best Three-Year-Olds Out
It was expected that Mad Hatter, not
to mention some of the very best three
year-olds, including Smoke Screen, Grey
Lag, Touch Me Not, Sporting Blood and
others, would go to the post for this
rich event. For show money is well
worth striving for.
As to yesterday's racing at beautiful
Belmont, it was somewhat disappoint?
ing. The feature ?was the Brook Steeple?
chase Handicap at about two ana a
half miles, perhaps the finest cross?
country event of the entire metropoli?
tan season. Nine of the best timber
toppers in training shot for the rich
purse. Joe V/idener sent out Houdini
r.nd Skibbereen; the Lumaden-Malverr.
Kill Farm had Flying Scout and Ruben j
Oliver, while the Winmill-Kcene entry j
embraced Surf and Masterful.
It v,?a? one of the finest steeplechases
imaginable tho way it was run. Mrs. !
George W. Loft's Sweepnjent, favorite ;
though crushed under tho heavy impost j
of 16'3 pounds, made the ganiest effort
from start to finish. This champion ot j
the fencers, which was admirably rid- ?
den by Jockey Mcrgler, went out to |
the lead from the start and set the i
pace all the way.
Rounding the last turn for home it |
looked a cinrh that the favorite would :
breeze. Then Byers began to ride Hou- ;
dini with might and main. The latter
closed fast after clearing the final ;
fence and caught Sweepment, which
was tiring fast under the cruel impost,
in the very last strides. Sweepment: ;
was beaten, but in no wise disgraced.
Weight can bring all thoroughbreds to \
a common level.
Victory Is Worth $9,100
This was the thirteenth running of,
the richest steeplechase handicap
known to the East and a fitting testi?
monial^ the sport when properly con?
ducted. Houdini barely nosed out
Sweepment, but. gathered $9,900 into
the coffer? of J. E. Widener as a re?
sult. Skibbereen, the stable mate of
Houdini, had little difficulty in taking
third money, which swelled the Wide
ncr earnings for the race considerably
over $11,000.
This race, which furnished one of
the really great thrills of the season. |
was almost perfectly run. Robert
Oliver made the only bobble when he |
ran out at the very first fence. Barring
that every timber topper was in the
contest from start to "finish and from
the start each had at least an outside :
chance for victory.
Ab to the other races, they furnished
plenty cf sport. In the opening dash
of five and a half furlongs Matches
Mary simply buck-jumped all the way.
Dunboyne took the Southampton High
weight Handicap at six furlongs from
Dry Moon, the favorite. Dur.boyne
closed fast to the outside under Sande
and outgamed the favorite in the clos-!
ing strides. It was a blanket finish -
Dunboyne, Dry Moon and Mercury be?
ing separated by inches only in the
order named at the finish.
Charle? Eddy Low Cross

Charles T. Eddy, with an 81, was j

| team match. The Americans ran away
j with the match, scoring 2(5 points while
; our neighbors were picking up 2 lone
\ tallies.
T. A. Parker and P. D. Ross were the
! life savers of the Canadians. But fo:
i them the Northerners would have been
j completely annihilated. Yesterday',
: defeat was the worst the Canadiar:
i seniors have suffered since these
j matches have been held.
! Among the victims on the visiting
j team was the redoubtable George S
! Lyon, captain of the Canadian team anc
j the present senior golf champion 01
j Canada. Lyon has always been, ant
! for that matter is, a veritable lion or
the goif links?we mean in so far a
i skill is concerned. Ho is a hard-fight
| ing, proficient player who by his nu
; merous victories over notable golfer:
i has earned a national reputation. Bu
j he went down to defaat before Charier
I A. Cooke, of the Areola Club, yester
i day. losing by 2 points, the first timi
j he has ever been beaten in this contest
! These were the cards:
! Out:
Cooko .4 5 5 6 8 4 6 6 S?43
Lyon .4 3 5 ? 4 4 S J 7?40
In:
C< <-ke .4 4 4 5 5 6 S 5 4?.19?8
Lyon .6 i 3 6 ? 5 4 6 4?il?8
Cooke won the low gross prize i'
the first half of tho seniors' meetin-;
? and has a good chance of winning th
i senior titk with his score of 162. Mos
j of the Aliericans played tine golf i
| downing their Canadian opponents. Bu
! two otliers who, besides Cooke, cam
through briliantly were H. S. Redfielc
of Hartford, Conn., and Frank Pr?t
brey, president of the Seniors' Associa
tion.
Redfield, in fact, was the shinin
star of the whole day's play. He i
competing in the second half of th
tournament, and has a grand chance c
beating out Cooke for the champior
ship. When the Areola Club perform?
turned in his '(9 yesterday to complet
his total of 162 he was the recipient c
many congratulations. For a 79 at Apt
wamis is no einch.
But Redfield, who bats from the lei
side of the plate or tee, but who swing
a beautiful iron or wooden club, ne*
ertheiess, duplicated Cooke's feat, whi:
defeating his Canadian opponent b
two points. Redfield should have ha
a 78. On that last green he had a pu
of less than four feat which he miss*
when the ball ?truck a piece of wii
grass and was pushed off the line.
Redfield, however, with his 7?, is i
good position to better Cooke's acor
He must gat a score of better than !
to w.n the title. An 83 will give hi:
a tie. His round was as follows:
Out. ., 4 4 .". 4 4 ti 3 t>?41

Presbrey, in defeating W, R. Bake
the pr?<ident of the ('anadian senior
a-s-ceiation, had a spiffy round o? 8
He was out in 4;t and came back wil
an excellent 37.

Wilson-Downey
Purse Held Up
By Ring Court
Jersey Boxing Commission
Holds Title Fight Was No
Contest; Wilson Testifies
By Jack Lawrence
New Jersey'? high court < t boxing
dec.-trad yesterday that J ...nny Wil?
son, middleweight "champion of the
world, waa guilty of not doing hits best
in his bout with Bryan Downey at
Boyle's Thirty Acres on Labor Day
and ordered that his end of the purse,
amounting to $35,000, be placed in a
bank pending the handing down of the
decision of the Boxing Commission as
t.i the punishment to be inflicted. This
decision is expected to bs announced
next Thursday.
Wilson was represented by a lawyer
at yesterday's hearing and it is cer?
tain that the matter will be taken into
the state courts. The champion was
given an opportunity to testify and he
declarded tnat he fought Downey to the
best of his ability. He was defended
by Charles Eagan, a former state Sen?
ator, who informed the boxing com?
missioners that he was not familiar
with the offense with which Wilson
j was charged. Eagan was quickly ac?
quainted with these facts by Charles
McNair, chairman of the commission,
who is conducting the prosecution.
McNair charged that Wilson was guilty
of not giving a boxing exhibition, as
called for in the contract he had signed
with Rickard.
Wilson Claims H? Fought Hard
Wilson, in his statement yesterday,
said: "I fought the best I knew how.
? was struck on the jaw in the first
round, and for the following five rounds
I did not know where I was. Downey
hit me lo? once or twice.
"I was aggressive all the way, but the
fight was different from the one I
fought with Downey in Cleveland. In
that fight he kept coming at me. In
our Jersey City -encounter he kept cov
' ered up and crouched so much that it
was almost impossible for me to hit
him. I lived up to the terms of my
contract with Mr. Rickard and nobody
protested during the tight. Only one
man apoke to me during the fight and
that was my chief second.*'
When Wilson wa3 asked by a member
of the commission whether he really
thought he was the aggressor through?
out the bout, the champion replied that
he did. When he was asked how many
times he led, he said he thought he
was leading ail the time. Testimony
taken at the first hearing of the Wil?
son matter, which was held one week
ago, indicated that the Boston middle?
weight led only eleven times. When
this was pointed out to him yesterday
ho said: "There were times during the
Labor Day bout when I was on the de
fansive, but for the most part I was
the aggressor."
Wilson denied that any of the sec?
onds who were handling him during
the bout had advised him to take things
easy. Harry Kelly, who was the chief
second in Wilson's corner, denied em?
phatically that either he or Harry My?
ers, who handled the towel, had urged
the champion to fight a defensive bat?
tle. Kelly testified that he a-dvised
Wilson to use tactics which would bring
Downney out of his crouching posi?
tion and enable him to land a blow
that might finish the fight. Kelly's
statements were corroborated bf{ Myers.
Champ Not Advised To Stall
At the first hearing it had been i
that Kally and Myers told tho cham- j
pion during the fifth and tenth rounds ;
to "go easy and keep on the dafen- '
sive, because the bacon is still ours."
Neither of the seconds cou'.d reraem
be* yesterday having made any re- j
marks that were even similar to those
?quoted one week ago by members of i
the Boxing Commission who were at
the ringside.
James A. Brennan and Thomas H.
Green, who were called in Wilson's
defense as "veteran boxing experts," ;
stated that in their opinion the middle- j
weight king put up a "sincere fight."
They said that they had seen Wilson
fight on other occasions, and that his
showing on Labor Day compared very
favorably with these previous encoun?
ters.
Kohler Beats Brady
Willie Kohler was awarded the de?
cision over Eddie Brady in the twelve- !
round final at Jamaica S. C. last night, j
Johnny Gannon scored a technical i
knockout over Johnny Green in the
fifth round of a ten-rounder, when th? !
timekeeper claimed the latter was down :
for the full count when the refere? j
had only counted nine.

Mayflower Barred
From Cup Race for
Fishing Schooners
Boston Craft Declared Ineli?
gible Because Not Regu?
larly Engaged in Fishing
HAUFAX, N. S.. Sept. l?.~ The Bos
i tf*n schooner Mayflower was debarred
\ to-day as a contender in the intema
j tional fishing schooner raoes by the
j trustees of "The Halifax Herald"
I trophy, won last year by the Gloucester
j schooner Esperanto.
After receiving notice to-day that
j the Mayflower bad beet? chosen to de
| fend the cup, the trustees of the
j trophy met and sent a telegram to
I Charles D. Brown, chairman of the
! American International Fishermen's
? Race Committee at Gloucester, Mass.,
reading as follows:
"Answering your telegram of 14th,
I am authorized to inform you
that the trustees of the North Atlantic
fishermen's international trophy who j
met to-day cannot accept r.he May?
flower es an entrant for the inter?
national races off Halifax in October I
and it will be necessary for you ta j
find some other riefender or let the
race go by default. It is important
to know promptly if you will have a
defender here."
The trustees made known no reason
for their action, but it is assumed to
be due to the belief that the Mayflower
has not regularly engaged in fishing,
i but was built to defend the cup and
i has made only such fishing trips as i
J would qualify her technically under
? the regulations for the races.
Both Nova Scotia and Gloucester
j fishermen have protested that the May- ;
; flower was not eligible for the races ;
: in that she failed to leave her last port
| of call on her way to the fishing bank* \
] by the date fixed by the regulations
, governing entries. Further, it wus pro- :
I tested that she was built more on the ?
i lines of a yacht than a fishing vessel, '
| and could not carry the quantity of fish ;
, a vessel of her dimensions should be
i able to do. *

By Grant! and Rice
ST. LOUTS, Sept. 15.?In the foot-?
hills of the Ortark.s, upon the farm of
the Seven Hills, the St. Louis Country
Club is now waiting for the champion-*
ship test which start? on Saturday.
The course belongs to the rolling, bil?
lowy type, of fine length and with mors
than its share of scenic beauty.
Laid out by Charles MrrDonald, archi?
tect -of*, the famous National Links at
Southampton, the battlefield here will
provide a severe test in spite of pre?
liminary ?*core3, which mean less than
nothing. For there is a vast difference
when the back tees are used; the pen?
cil comes out and the pressure comes
on. There are no less than ten "out
of bounds" possibilities that frequent?
ly versre upon probabilities where roads
and fences skirt in uncomfortably close
to the fairway.
But. only the loss of distance will bet
recorded for any out-of-bounds mistake,
and this will be a pleasant cha-pge from
the heavy penalty imposed in the open
at Columbia. There are hills and val?
leys here bordered by trees and guarded
by brooks that call for hard hitting if
one is to have the second shot opene?
up. From the back tees the successful
operator will need distance as well as
direction, for without the punch he will
be helpless.
Greens in Wonderful Shape
Recent rains have brought a wonder?
ful glow of green to the course, which
is now in exceptional condition.
gToomed and manicured to a finish. One
is allowed to start gently with a drive
and pitch for the first hole, and then.
two iron shot holes in succession, but
after this light getaway trouble begins
to pile up for the unwary as mistakes
grow more and more costly.
At the sixth hole, for example, s
carry of 180 yards is needed to clear
out-of-bounds territory, where there is
no compromise short of this yardage.
The greens, due to the constant care
and attention, with the help of late
rains, will be in first class shape, where
no alibis for poor putting* will get by.
St. Louis has made every prepara?
tion, combining a well conditioned
championship course with a complete
line of Western hospitality, lifted to
the limit.
Stuart Stickney, one of the prim?
ministers of the occasion, has been
busier than David Lloyd George for the
last two months, and he has found
eager co-operation from his associates,
who hope to make this one of the great?
est of all American championships.
Intersectional Team Match Feature
One of the most notable features of
the occasion will be the big intersec?
tional team match at eighteen holes
medal play on Friday. The four team.-i
are drawn from the East, the Middlo
West, the Pacific Northwest and South?
west, Francis Ouimet. Robert A. Gard?
ner, Chandler Egan and Cameron
Buxton leading their various sectOT?
into battle.
The four teams include the following
slate: Eastern team, Ouimet, captain;
Jesse Guilford, Max Marston, Reggie
Lewis, John G. Anderson, Tommy Ar-,
mour, Jesse Sweet ????r and W. W. Pat?
ten. Southern team, Buxton, captain;
Bobby Jone.--, Richard Hickey, A. p.
Boyd. C. L. Dexter. Louis Jacoby'
Wenzler. Middle West, Gardner, cap?
tain; Dave Herron, Clarence Wolfe,
Albert Seckel. Jimmy Johnston, and
other. The Pacific Northwest will have,
a strong team with Chandler Eman,
Vonelm, and others.
