5P?ftos f ! tossed American liner New York at the foot of
BB I Christopher street yesterday afternoon wera
two typical representatives of Knglieh Indoor

i V attentlon.

The great cueist chatted with a roportcr of

I and then goon lo Chicago to play the match
m " eJrendr arranged with the Amerloan chum-
HHR 1, ; Jl plon The conditions are the samo as in the
B I mateh at London which resulted so unoxpect-
HB ',( rdlr In the sensational victory of Ives, with
HjR tj the important exception that the pocket angles
B will bo marked off by a aeven-lcch linn. This
HH reservation was Insisted on by Roberts owing
H I to the extraordinary manner In which Ives
B . narsed the balls and scored within the spaces
bbbbbbbI iiii Bow forbidden.
hSe If Roberts entertained any of the harh feel-
Sjf5 lni;H attributed to him at tho time of his de-
H feat liber must have 'evaporated since, as his
9BHS references to the memorablo afTair were de-
E cldedlr good humored. Ho luugtilngly ud-
HRfK mltted that he and his expert advisers were
K ' completely taken by surprise when Ives do-
jHK ; teeted the loophole inthearticles. and set about
HB making his remarka: le score. No other play-
MjB i or. within Roberts's recollection, had ever at-
jiBK i tempted tho unique method adopted with such
HH . startling success, although the articles never
M provided against such a contingency.
lnH The forthcoming match a scheduled to tnke
HB place at the Music Hall. Chicago, Irm Sept.
I " IN to 'J. f. Inclusive. No maxitnum number of
H t points Is specified, and the player having the
H ; highest aggregate at the end of the allotted
-Hy time wins.
B Play will cease each day when the lender
LMB reaches 1.000, and the total winning score is
BB expeoted to he 1 1.000. although it oberts thinks
BK It Is not absolutely necessary that the leading
K player must reach that maximum to win.
H With reference to possible pool matches
HHB Roberts says he is open to meet the best play-
fl-B ers la sight, de Oro preferred. While not
HR averse to playlog on an American table and
BHH under local rules, be does not think such a
HHB match would lie a satisfactory settlement of
BE the players' respective claims to the world's
BJK championship. He snys the methods of play
HkssE and stylos of table airl onulpment prevailing
MfS- IK In America and llnglaml are so distini'tly dif-
BB ferent that a gross of matohes in any ono stylo
would nover tin nlsh n relialile line.
in support of this theory It iberts Is Importing
a fully equipped 1 nglisb table of the regula
tion sIkc. 0 by 11'. with halls and nil other ac
cesaories. in strict accordance with liritish
conditions. Ills Knglixh talile was shipped
from London on the I'ersian Monarch, which
sailed Aug. 10. and should reach here early In
I the week, liohertu's idea is to have one match
or series of games played on this table, u sec
ond oontest nn a standard American table,
after which the players' merits might bo ac
curately 111. ui. -.1 out.
Although Roberts never played n match In
this country, lie has boon here once before.
The date Is so remote that lie had some difll
eulty In recollecting it at llrst, but he llnally
plated the year as IHi'l This is home out bv
the records of the l'.ncllsh onami ioushlps,
which show that W. look won In that yeur by
default. Roberts explained that he justrushed
across to America on that occasion and went
to Austrulla via San r'ranctsco. He proposes
to uwvu more leisurely during bis prosent
Roberts's prntlciency with the cue is to some
extent hereditary. Ills father, John Roberts,
hr.. had been the recognized champion bil
liard playci of England up to ItrfU In that
year a gold-lined champion vase was ollereil.
The Hrst contest foi the new trophy was 1.200
points up. and V. Cook supplanted the senior
Roberts. Thereafter, until IHN.1. the contests
rare 1.000 up, when the ante was raised to
The present Roberts cut in a few months
after Cook's victory to avenge his father's
defeat, and since then, except when nP-ont
on one of his frequent ton. ... he has rurely
found any one to dispute Ills riubt to the
championship at the game until young Ives,
like another l.ochinvu catuo out of the West
last spring.
There has been no enntost for the blstroio
chimplonshlp trophy since HH.r, and Roberts
says it is now his aLsolute property. It has
been out of his hands frequently and for long
Intervals, but lie alwnys contrived to chip In
at tho critical moment and regain possession
of It. as wilt bo seen Irom the following sum

nneTow. Aug. 26. -Boston yachtsmen are
ready to pin their faith to the Jublloe as
the coining defender of the America's Cup.
That hope lies In the good showing already
made by the Taine cup defender Jubilee and
In tho possibilities which she has of further
improvement This Is thai opinion of mnny
Huston yaohtsmen who have watched the rac
ing and who are well posted on what has been
done. -
Gen. I'alne himself will not express so san
guine a vlow of matters, hut he docs not talk
like 11 discouraged or dlhcnrtened man. and
Is quietly going ahead with changes in the
sails of the Jubilee, which, though not great In
extent, are still vital when the utmost possible
speed is sought.
His friends are much more enthuslnstle
over the prospect ahead, and some of them do
not hesitate to express their feelings. Yachts
men who were firm believers In the I'ilgrlm
can nlso ho found who believe In tho Jubilee
as against the Vigilant, anil think that the
lattor has no walkover for cup defence selec
tion. They count the I'ilgrlm out for the
present, for while few doubt that she coultl be
Improved with more sail. It Is very much
doubted If there Is time to rig her in the wny
she evidently needs, even If the syndicate had
decide. I to put In more money nnd go ahead
with any ebnnges. No decision had been
1 co-he. 1 In the matter up to this noon, so the
boom is just now for tho Jubilee, and it Is
founded on a good baeis of observation and
comparison. In which th" bronze button of
the Vigllnnt as against the steel bottom of the
Jul.. I. .. plnys a large part.
en. 1 'a in., was asked to-day what he
thought of tlte Jubilee's chances of being the
chosen lost, but ho would only sny that In his
p mien the boat had iloue very well with the
Mgiiaut. and that the la ter's bottom was a
great atlvantago to her in light airs and in the
lattor part ol tier racing.
" What changes aro being made In the Ju
bilee f" was asked.
" 1 ntn doing not nine hut hnvlng a few of the
sails resit and the lib of the gaff made of
proper strength,'' he replied
"Hiall you have a new mainsail '"
"No. It is too late to get a now sail Into
shape. The present one can lie Improved a
little, untl the wrinkles which now appear In
portions of it can be broken out."
The General was very anxious to know as to
the truth of the report that tho Vigilant was H8
feet on the water line, aud seemed to feel bet
ter pleased with the outlook for his own boat
on receiving assurance as to the truth of tho
.'peaking of the merits of a hronzo over a
sleel bottom, (ien. I'alne said that it was not
so much the fouling that was to be dreaded as
the eating through of the rust Whenever tho
rust ate through the point the latter scaled
..II and loft a rough spot, which could only he
made smooth by sandpapering and painting
John IS. I'alne. designer of the Jubilee, fol
lows his father's example In being reticent
about her chances. He declined to sav to-day
what improvements were being inude. but is
." Meptly pi, 1 at nil dis.-ouraged over the out
look, '."i Ii-ui asked about the length of tho
Vigilant, he wanted to know whether or not
eighty-eight feet witter line was the official
measurement. When assured that it wus
pretty neai it. he said that although she wou'd I
have to take in ballast and probably cut
down her sail, still he did not know hut what
she could go all the faster. He has groat re
spect for the speed of the Vigilant, and will
not say much about it. When asl.etl about tho
Jubilee's bottom he did not have much to say,
but thought that It might have beeualittlo
rough after being In the water for a couple of
In talking about the cun defenders. Ocorga
I .a iv lev said: "1 think that tho Vigllant's
brass bottom had a great deal to do with her
making such a good showing. The steel boats
must have been very foul after being in the
witter for two weeks. Look at the Volunteer.
Site was hauled out at Fair Haven just before
the cruise of tho New York Yacht Club, and
when we pulled her out tho other day her
bottom was In very bad shape and will bavo to
be cleaned and painted.
"The Camilla is another example of how
quickly steel will foul. Who had not been In
the water two weeks, but when we haul. "I her
out the grass was several inches long on her
keel and bottom. I think that the Vigilant
more than made up her allowance to the
Jubilee by having tho Tobln bron.e bottom.
Ho -.ton will be in it yet. and I think that the
Jubilee will win out from the Vigilant. "

The members of tho Larchmont Yacht Club
are busy now preparing for some great yacht
racing. On Thursday, if all goes well and the
cup defenders respond as they ought to the
liberal offers of tho club, the Ho-fuuters will
race for the $1,000 cup offered by Commodoro
Caldwell II. Colt, the sportsmanlike ownor of
the Hauntless. The Vigilant. 1 olonia, and
Jubilee are all entered, an.l while the I'alne
boat will probably not start, the two Now York
syndicate boats will, and If tho Colonla has
been improved as much as she can be tho pair
should make a very pretty raeo of it in the
Mound. Two days later, or on Saturday. Sept.
'J. the Laichtnonts will bold their annual fall
regatta, when a special j-Juo cup la
offered for the K"-footers. In addition
to this, prizes are offered In no less than
twenty-two other classes, ranging from a
twenty-foot open boat up to Jon-foot schoon
ers. Entries will close on Thursday with the
Regatta Committee, "n Thursday. Aug. Hi.
while the trial races nre going on. the I.arch
11. "itts will hold a sjieclal race for schooners
for the l.arohmont 1 tip of lcU.'l. This race,
which was Inaugurated last year, was such a
eucesH that the club has ttoclded to make it
an annual feature, and has again offered a
S600 cup.
With these events, to say nothing of oyster
antl cat boat races galore, the l.archmont boya
expect to wind up the season in their usual
lively manner, ana when it conies to racing
there are fow clubs In It with tho Larchmonts.

London. Aug. 20. -The Britannia. Satanita,
Calluna, and the American yacht Navnhoe
woro tho starters to-day in tho regatta of tho
Start Hay Yacht Club. The courso was a tri
angular one. starting from a mark boat off tho
entrance of Dartmouth Harbor, and was sailed
over three times, making tho entire distance
forty-two miles.
In a light wind blowing from tho southeast
tho yachts got away at 10::) o'clock. Tho
Satanita. In lier hurry to start, was over the
lino at the firing of the signal gun. and was
compelled to put tack. It waa eleven minute ,
before she was fairly under way again.
The Navnhoe was llrst to croa- the line. Sho
was followed by the Hrltanni.. and Callunn.
TliO Navnhoe drew ahead of tho Satanita and
Caluna to the first turn, but the Satanita. not
withstanding her unexpected handicap of
eleven minutes, did tho finest palling of the
four, and regained much of the distance sho
had ke-t through tier false start.
The race was won by tho itritannlo. Tho
Satanita was second, Navahoo third, and Cal

trade donated over $15,000 to the leksue aa
guarantee acalnat loaf, ao that tho wheelmen
will not auffer through their failure to make
the tournament a financial aucceaa. In order
to rolmhurse the trade a two-dar tournament
will be held at Chicago aome time In October
for their benefit.
Tho National Crcllafa' t'nlon of Kneland
hnvo mnlntalnel a strict silence In rotation to
tho rhariraa that ther have made airatnat A. A.
Zimmerman. The official replrof the L. A.
TV. has beon received In England, but a month
will elapse before tho next meeting of the
union. Zimmerman expresses no uneaslnesa
about the matter. He courts the fulloat In
Teatigatlon Into his amnteur standing.
H 102a
I I I x- 1
A rider who Is attaining groat riromlnonce
In England Is E. IL Osmond. He has start
ed in to break records, and up to date has
boen very successful. In an attempt at the
one-hour record ho rodo '-'.' miles, lesa 43
yards, in exactly 60 minutes, which la world's
record time. On Auk. 17 he rodo two miles in
4 minutes 1!4 '-!-r seconds. Tills is also a
world's record. The best previous I'.nirllsh
record was 4 inlnutos li ' 4-5 seconds, held by
M. It Fowler, while W. V. Wenele holds the
American rei-ord of 4 minutes 28 .'1-5 seconds.
t" -iiii.tpl has won the Atierley lllcycle Club
championship tin's season and num. tops
races of minor Irnportnnco.
The defeat of Zimmerman last Thursdny by
L !v Meliitjes in a hitlf-mlle race indicates
that this South African racerls rnpidlv becom
ing accil mated, and villi likely attain the speed
he has shown in somo of Ills record rides in
England. Zimmerman has been ridintr very
erratically tit is season, and there are somo who
behove that his racing days are drawing to a
closo. Throughout the Western Circuit he has
been beaten at the huntls of Sanger. Wendle.
Johnson, and Tyler. It is claimed that the
mishap to Sanger at Chicago preventod the
latter from proving .'..nclusively that ho is a
faster man than Zimmerman, nnd should
Mcintjos continue, to bent Zimmerman it Isnot
likely that Americans will have any proper
representative to inept tlio forelirnor at tho
fall mooilncs. Zimmerman has been raoing
constantly sln.'e his return from England, and
is in neet! of a good rest.
The failure ..I 1 r.derlck Osmond, the ex
champlon ol England, to raco at any of the
American tournament! bns resulted In some
very unfavorable comments being made.
Osmond refuse, i to mce against Zimmerman
while tho latt.rwns In l.ngland last year on
the plea thnt be was not in condition. Since
Osmond's arrival In this country he has had
ample time to tret In condition, but his con
tinued refusal to race is interpreted aa an
acknowledgment that he (ears defeat.
The act Ion of the llaclog Board of the L. A. W.
In refusing to declare nny of their men pro
fessionals previous to the Chicago tourna
ment was regarded as an Indication that, after
the big meeting ended, u number of noted
riders would be suspended. No such stops
have been taken, however, and from the pres
ent outlook nothing of that kind will be done.
The fact is the I A. W. Haelng Board are en
tirely too weak to bring the suspicious men to
the front for a thorough Investigation. Home
of tho members of the Bonrd ar In favor of
turning out all the men whoseactlons warrant
oxpulsion. but the Western mom hers are dis

The newlf orcanlred Columbua Catholle
Club plunged Into the sporting whirl laat
Tuesdar with n vim which agreeahlr surprised
its fraternal rlvala. It had eleven representa
tives In tho different events at the 0. 11. Ia
games, and nil ran well enough to Insure fu
ture success on tho track.
TheXavlerA. A. had fourteen representa
tives running, but with the solitary exception
of on9 entry each from the 8t. Stephen's A. A.
and Holr Cross L. A. A. the athlotes or the
other Catholic clubawore conspicuous br their
nbsonce. One official asserfod thnt many of
the prominent Catholic cluba which prosent
such a bold front In A. 1). I". tournaments
almply borrow men for those occasions at the
eleventh hour. Mtnllnr charges bavo often
beon mado before, out never came to a head.
What gave color to tho subject on tho latest
Occasion was the presence of an unattachod
athlete, who said he belonged to no club. In
A. I. 17. contests tho same runner Is one of the
first put forward as a star member of one of
tho compel lug clubs.
Among the many Harlem organization
which have been attracting attention by their
sportive enthusiasm this season tho Hallo
ween Club plavs a prominent part, its recruit
ing ground Is the parish of All Saints, and Its
member roll embrace 140 of the most de
sirable nnmes In the vicinity. Tlio club house
Is situated dlroctly In the rear r the church
grounds, at BO K.ust lSOth street. It Is very
snugly flttotl up and has every facility for
comfort nnd fun to be had Indoors. In tho
billiard room there are two lino billiard tables
end a pool table of the newest pattern. Tho
parlore. enrd, anil reading rooms nre also fully
equipped, and nrrangetuonts for n gymnasium
are In contemplation.
All the enterprise of the management I at
present concentrated on the excursion to
C.rand View Grove, on the Sound, scheduled
for Thursdny. Aug. Ml. The Holy Nome and
other societies connected with All Snlnts
Church will share In the festivities of tho out
ing, and a high old time is anticipated, (lames
of all sorts nre being arranged as npPoti7.ors
for the goot! things provided.
The Xnvter club's I onrd meeting may soon
decide dotlnltely as to what athletes will bo
sent to represent the club at the World's I'nlr
tournnment. They have almost a dor.n am
bitious ami desirable candidates for tho houor.
hut the chosen ones will probably he SI. i.
Swoeney. A. J. Walsh. W. O'Keorre. anil J.J.
Slooney. These hnvo all won championships
in the club colors, antl can bo relied on to wear
them with credit in any company. Neither of
the o'sullivnns can get the netossary leave of
absence, ho that the club will hardly be repre
sented In tho weight events. One ortwo others
In tho middle distance class may establish a
claim by their form In tho Labor Unv games.
The only other Catholic club likely to be
represented In Chicago Is the Holy Cross Ly
ceum. Its prestige will be entrustod to
Tommy Conneff. who should prove n host In
himself. The ex-champion' club mntes and
admirers are rather pleuaed than otherwise to
hoar. f the possible opposition of r. ft Bacon,
the English champion. They any the British
flyer will serve to supply the only element
needod to chaao Conneff-among the records.

There has been some speculation as to who
would represent tho Young Men's Institute at
the State meet. Last year Jtidson McUcllan
wns the sole representative, but he Is now the
Socretary of tho Lnglewood. N. J.. Associa
tion. The Institute has not had many crack
ajacks since Hweenov. I'ulvermlller. nnd their
friends went over to the athletic cluba. The
Institute Oarsmen tklll be on hnnd on I-ohor

to a finish for S10.000 a side and the largest j.urae
offered, the men to weigh 114 pounds at 1 o'clock on
the afternoon of the nght. w ta generally laughed at by
sporting men yesterlay. O'Kourke's conditions will
hardly suit tho little KnglUbmen and his friends.
in the first place, I'.lmmer, being a bantam weight,
would not consent to light a llnlsh contest except at
110 or 112 pounds Then the stipulation that the men
weigh In at 1 o'clock, or eight hours before entering
tile ring, cannot meet with tils approval In such an
event luxon might easily take on four or fire pounds
in the time hetwuen weighing in and the fight, which
would give the colored boy a decided ndvantaga. If
(t'ltourke thlnke Ibe Unlit may be secured by the coney
I-.'.n i Athletic Club, then hie suggestion that the men
tight for pi pun n side la ndlculoiie. as stake Bants
are not allowed In tho arena by the tea Hie deposit of
