(Iio G rill ns to Receipt of
An anomalous situation developed at
5V meeting of the registration committee
f the Metropolitan Association last Mon
day to Imiulte Into the character of the
prltf' Riven for the games of the Tlppe
nry Men's Association on September 29.
The proceedings have been talked over
freely since and there are many who aver
that, contradictory as It may seerg, the
committee received evidence that would
warrant the suspension of every man that
npresed himself as satisfied with the.
yrlie he received. ,
Such action would be drastic compared
nrlih the Indulgent manner In which our
crick athletes have been treated In the
fcat, but It would sene to settle once
uii for all the ugly rumors that contin
uing crop up about certain of our bright
tttrs In the athletic firmament receiving
money for their appearance at games. It
Inn Insult to the Intelligence of the mem
bers of the registration committee to take
It for granted that they believed any ama
teur satisfied with the trashy prize unless
lie received some more substantial recog
nition for the race he ran or had some
personal reason for appearing at the
The denial of any further sanction to
m promoters of the games Is sufficient
eldence that the straightforward ama
teurs had not been fairly dealt with and
that Vic Casey of the New York A. C,
who made the complaint, was justified In
bringing tho matter before the committee.
How does it come about that with abso
lutely no Incentive In the shape of prlr.es
the meeting In question could attract the
cream or the athletic talent of this coun
try and the distinguished runner from
Finland, Hannes Kolehmalnen?
At last Monday's meeting the athletes
were not on trial' and except In one In
stance the aim of the questions was to
find out whether the promoters had mis
represented the prizes. Simple as those
Questions were, tfiey served to draw the
line between the amatenr and the man
who Is after the coin. Either that or the
11f prary men must have been able to cast
t spell over men who hitherto have had
keen appreciation of the value of prizes
nd In some cases have been under sus-
iTclon of preferring cash to the suitably
That a light began to dawn on the com
mittee was evident after several of the
stars had testified that they were satls-
d with the prize received and, going fur
ther, stated that they never Inquired what
th prizes were to be, in fact they showed
the utmost Indifference to prizes for that
or any other meet. When the situation
became plain the committee did go fur
ther in examining Hannes Kolehmalnen
through an Interpreter. The question was
put to the Finn "Did you receive any ex
rnses for running at the games?" That
question wis not put to Tom Collins, Mel
Bheppard. Matt McOrath, or Gaston fltro
hlno, all of whom, in spite of their prom
inence, expressed themselves as satisfied

As the safeguard of the amateur ath
letics of this district, the registration com
mittee not only has a responsible posi
tion, but Is provided by the elastic rules
of tho A. A. U. with every means of get
ting at the truth. In default of the gov
erning body having the power of a court
of law, every amateur athlete who reg-
ters has to subscribe to rules that place

ttatus on himself. Kectlon 8 of Article

pears to be whether the committee be
lieves the prominent men are altruists aa
well as amateurs or whether the members
hare the general belief that some reason
or other Is back of tho "satisfaction." In
Justice to Matt Mcdrath It may be said
that he Is a TIppernry man and It may
"ell be that he competed as a favor to
the men of hln rounty. It Is time enough
for the others to be ready with their ex
planation when the committee puts them
on the gllll, if It ever does.
In the light of the developments, there
Is a portion of the evidence given by
Kolehmalnen that Is Interesting and
which previously has not been referred
to. Through his Interpreter he testified
ttiat when he went to the games It was
with the Intention of running In tho three
mil handicap, but that he was asked by
fnme one on the part of the management
to run In tho flvo mile Instead. Bo the
poor Finn had to run flvo miles for tho
sorry looking stickpin, and according to
his own evidence, he accepted the direc
tion of others as to which raco he should
compete In, yet did not receive a cent for
Another sidelight was provided by a
mmber of the registration committee who.
hn he found that our best athletes could
be got to run for prizes of little value,
turned to Hheppard and said : "I must
ln you up to run at our games."
.Ever one Interested In keeping ama
teur sport clean hopes that tho registra
tion comtnltteo will pursue this matter to
Its conclusion. It Is not for the newspa
pers or the regular followers of the sport
yjfl provide evidence or look Into suspicious
circumstances. That Is the clear duty
of tho registration committee. With all
w evidence In their possession It Is a
"lr Question to ask the members of that
committee whether they believe that any
man who competed at the Tips games
'' whs satisfied, If not, then It Is tho
July of the commltteo to find out what
It nas tnut caused these men to be satis

Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 2. In the great
Intersectlonal Southern fight of the year
Vanderbllt met Virginia this afternoon
for the first time In fourteen years and
smothered them 13 to 0. Virginia, after
two attempts at drop kicks early In the
game, never was In dangerous territory
again, while Vanderbllt kept the ball close
to Virginia's goal the greater part of the
time and It was only desperate stands In
the shadow of the posts that saved them
from a score at least twice as large.
Vanderbllt showed great weakness nt
quarterback and with two substitutes In
the backfleld did not show up to expec
tations. For Virginia Capt. Todd did
practically all the ground gaining, with
ends and tackles showing strong on de

ONE WALLOP WAS ENOUGH.
Brlnkler'a Mlnelnar Manner Helled
by Terrlnc Fnncb.
San Francisco, Nov. 2. drover Brink
ley who once was water boy and sparring
partner for Stanley Ketchel, scored a sen
sational knockout In the first round of his
bout here to-night with Tom Burgess, an
experienced boxer. He hit Burgess one
wallop on the chin and put him out. When
Hrlnkley entered the ring he was clad In
a bright red sash, and added to this a
cute little twitch of his heel as he stepped
up for the first round.
a Theans grinned and said: "Just watch
the dude blow up." But It was the other
way. Like lightning Brlnkley shot over
a left to the chin and Burgess went down
like a rock. Here Is where Burgess made
the mistake of his life. He got up. Bang
went the left again, followed like light
ning with a right Burgess went down,
this time to stay. Now the promoters
are saying, who Is this man?
Shortly after Stanley Ketchel whipped
Joe Thomas and was regarded as the
best lightweight at that tjme ho estab
lished himself In San Francisco. At his
camp was a go' nnd fetch boy. This was
Orover Brlnkley. Between times the lad
picked up the finer points of the game
from Stanley and many a time made him
back water before his terrific left punch.
Brlnkley Is a stocky muscular fellow of
the Sharkey type"and his manager pre
dicts a brilliant future for the lad.

The art of poultry husbandry hns un
dergone radical changes during the Inst
twenty years. Ono of the most noticea
ble changes has been In the method of
housing the stock.
Fifteen to twenty years ago the aver
age poultryman believed that It was neces
sary to keep his fowl warm during the
winter months. In order In Induce them
to produce eggs during the season of
highest prices. Hence In the erection of
poultry housrn tightness of construction
was most desired, and structures having
double and trlplo walls, equipped with
tight fitting windows nnd doors were to
be found on every poultry plant.
Such buildings were almost invariably
without means of ventilation, nnd tho
birds were frequently kept In these tight
boxes throughout the entire winter, with
no other ventilation than that afforded by
leaving the door open on occasional pleas
Houses of this kind were most uncom
fortable, being damp nnd chilly, nnd the
birds kept under such conditions Veto
frequently sick, debilitated nnd unpro
ductive. In the endeavor to overcome the glar
ing faults of poultry buildings of this
character, more attention was paid to
ventilation. It was found that this tended
to keep tho house drier nnd the- birds
In better health, and gradually tho open
front or fresh air type of houso was
evolved and generally adopted. Houses
of this kind vary greatly In form and
sire, but all arc remarkable for tho pro
vision made for the unobstructed entrance
of air and sunshine.
Large openings are left In the south
side- of the buildings, varying In size ac
cording to type of building and the nerve
of the owner. In some cases the opening
equals one-quarter of the area of tho
south wall. In others the entire south
side Is left open. These openlnvs are fre
quently fitted with cloth covered frames,
which may be closed In bad weather to
keep out the rain and snow without
seriously Interfering with the ventilation.
On some successful farms these openings
are never closed, regardless of weather
The introduction of fresh air methods
of housing usually results In an Increase
of vigor In the stock, with consequent
heavier production arid decreaso In the
amount of sickness and mortality.
There nre certain very definite require
ments to which modern poultry houses
must conform. So long as they do. such
matters as size, shape nnd materials
used In construction do not greatly affect
the results secured. The welfare of tho
fowl demands that tho house shall bo
dry, light and sunny, well ventilated
and free from draughts. For the benefit
of the poultry man It should bo convenient
and economical. These points should be
carefully considered wheru planning new
buildings or making altcrltlons In exist
JERSEY SHOW ON BIG SCALE.
To Be Ira Elisabeth In December
With Myriad Exhibits.
It Is planned to have the annual poul
try and agricultural exhibition, to be held
at the Armory In Elizabeth, N. J., De
cember 4 to 7. Inclusive, under the Joint
auspices of tho Union County Poultry As
sociation and the Union County Board of
Agriculture, one or the greatest educa
tional exhibitions of Its kind ever held.
F. Warren Sumner, director of tho ex
hibit. Is a practical and scientific poultry
man of many years experience and has
taken part In and helped run a number'
of successful exhibitions. The New Jer
sey State Agricultural Experiment Sta
tion Is cooperating with Mr. Sumner In
every respect and has afforded much val
uable assistance In preparing tho exhibit
plans and in furnishing exhibits.
The dpartment of poultry husbandry of
the experiment station will make a com
plete educational exhibit which will be
accompanied by a representative af the
department who will explain the exhibit
and answer questions. This exhibit will
consist of charts, photographs, models of
buildings and modern poultry appliances.
Dr. J. .O. Llpman, director nf tho New
Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station,
hns agreed to send to the exhibition the
great New Jersey Stato Exhibit which Is
to be used In connection with the Land
and Irlgatlon Show at Madison Square
Garden. This probably will bo one of
the most Important features of the show.
Gold, silver and bronze medals will be
awarded for tho best poultry exhibits, as
well as many sliver cups for best ex
hibits of the leading varieties of chickens.
Prizes will be awarded for the best speel
mens of different fruits nnd vegetables
available In December.
Over .100,000,000 Chickens In V S,
According: to the returns of the thir
teenth census there are on the farms of
tho United States nearly 300.000,non
chickens, of n totul value of (154,000,000.
This Is In addition to fowl kept In villa-res,
Ac, Tho returns show nlso that durlnK
the past year ckkh nnd poultry tn the
value of $750,000,000 were, produced
throuRhout tho country. This seems
larKe, but when It Is taken Into confident,
tlon that there are 300,000,000 laylnu hens
nt work and that theso hens laid only nn
avernsre of eighty ckks each or a total of
24,000,000,000 ecus durlnK twelve months,
It Is seen that the return is much smaller
than It should be, for If the hens wcrn,
properly housed and cared for they should
lay nearly twice as many ckbs as they
did. The record for a layinr hen Is about
280 eBRs in a year and the average should
be at least lBO-eecs a hen a year. And
as some plnnts nro Betting nn egg yield
considerably greater than this It Is ap
parent that most of the hens In this coun
try are laying even lees than eighty a

YonnK Chicks Ship Well.
Breeders rapidly are coming to the con
clusion that It pays better to ship day old
chicks than hatching eggs. Chicks tfiat
are started on their way within twenty
four hours after leaving the shell stand
long Journeys well, some even, being sent
on three and four day trips without any
feed or water and arriving In good condi
tion. Eggs sent on Journeys qf equal dura
tion are very upt to be spoiled for hatch
ing purposes, as the Jarring Incident to
tho trip often either kills the germ In the
egg or elfo weakens It to such an extent
that It dies within a few days after being
placed In nn Incubator.
