Ills Illustrious stable mate, Sir Barton,
completely filled the public oyo when
tliey paraded to the post In tlio Uolihr
Handicap, which served as the- featuro
of a good card at Havre de Grace to
day. Improved track conditions and
railroad service had the effect of at
tracting tlio largest crowd of tho meeting.

t was evident that Kelly hnd tho race
won. Billy Kelly w;v an easy winner,
whilo War Mask, under a drive, took
place honors from Ticklish.
After the raco Burke, who rode Tick

Kummer on Sir Harton hud attempted
to give Snnde Instructions during the

because the stewards refused to suppress

winch was Kummers only offence.
Rubidium proved a big surprise when
sho carried off the Voguo purso from
several good fillies. Head Over Heels,
with her usual high speed, led the field
through tho early Journey but weakened
through tho stretch and gave way to
Virginia L., which faltered before Rubi

appointingly after having shown a short
flight of speed through the early stages.
Charley Summy, making his first ap
pearance In the Hast, took tho measure
of a big band of sprinting platers In tho
third race under a good rldo by the
Western apprentice, Rldenour. Hack
Bay, tho runner up, pnnlded tho early
pace, but weakened before the winner's
challenge In tho final eighth. Onlco was
third. .1 J Fahey claimed Charley
Summy after his victory.
Two events for two-year-olds were

Tho Urook runner, less than thtee
miles from the end of the iac, was

faltered and did not have tho strength

The Giants lost tho first threo games and had a hard time winning yes
terday because they ore not hitting. They have a team averago of worso
than .230, which is In striking contrast to that which they compiled In tho
serlos with tho RedSox. Tho club Is in a slump, but It Is not going to stay
In It long. Unless wo miss our signs tho d:iy of rallying Is not far off. In tho
South against tho Red Sox tho Giants hnd a peculiar way in their hatting.
They started off like streaks and went along that way for threo days. Then
they slumped miserably for threo days. In tho seventh game they rallied
strongly and kept up their batting for three dys, only to full a bit for three
more. But tho team gradually was Improving Its average hitting perform
ance and against some fairly good hurling, especially when It was served
up by Hoyt nnd Russell.
Hoyt, wo note, won over the Yankees yesterday morning and gave a
masterful exhibition. This youngster, who wus cast off by the Giants, will
provo ono of tho stars of the season If he retains a hold on himself. IIo Is
rather young, nnd sometimes success In youth has a spoiling pffect. The
Yankees aro not making a very impressive start. They are counted on to get
ahead mainly on their hitting, hut It has not been encouraging to dato. Per

He is expected to make a first rate

relative of Loues the Greek, winner

"tory brought to light the rare coinci

Those who will receive Mr. Curtls's
letter nro Ixiuls Telllor, for the New Eng
land district; Wilfrid Held, for the
Southeast; Joe Davis, for tho middle
States; n. Lager, for tho Pacific coast,
and a representative of the Southwest
ern section.
Have Taken Ilrond View.
That the manufacturers have tnken a
broad view of thn question Is evident
from a perusal of tho letter. They feel,
for Instanco, that all freak balls should
bo barred, and that If there la restric
tive legislation at all It should have to
do with compressed airs or gases, actual
energizing substances, steel balls nnd so
forth. But to tamper with tho ball as
It now Is made Is something that they
feol Is not in the best Interests of the
game, jinco, as they declare, ball mak
ing now has reached its practical limits.
Tlio wave of sentiment sweeping Brit
ain In favor of standardization strikes
Mr. Curtis as nothing to lie wondered at.
His explanation of tho feeling abroad Is
that during the war America was en
abled to continue golf ball making, while
over there manufacture was stopped
completely, or nearly so, and when the
time came for them to return to the old
game they found between the old and the
new what they considered to be a wide
gulf, whereas tho makers in America
regarded what they had accomplished
slnco 1914 merely the last refinements
In perfecting the rubber core.
In part tho letter addrepsed to tho P.
O. A. by tho manufacturers through Mr.
Curtis Is ns follows:
Fear Gnmr Would He Hnriurd.
"Our attitude as manufacturers h
strongly opposed to standardization,
nnd In that opinion wo are governed by
two motives: First, wo do not wish to
see tho gamo harmed In view of our
Interest In It, and, second, we do not
wish to be placed In the position ns man
ufacturers where tho ruling body tells
us to make ono thing and the body of
golfera demands another, a result Inevi
table enough if anything radical Is at
"However, we do not believe that an
Indefinite nnd continued increase In golf
ball distances would bo undesirable, and
that therefore It would bo wise to stand
ardize, at least to this extent; to wit,
in a broad and general way limit manu
facture to present conditions of con
struction nnd materials (.broadly de
fined) and lur out all future freaks such
as compressed aire or gasscs, actual en
ergizing substances, eteel balls, &c.
"I feel certain that the golf ball has
now reached Its practical limits as re
gards distance, and I state that on many
years' cxporlence In this eort of experi
mentation with unequalled resources as
regards equipment and devices. In fact,
no new principle In golf ball construc
tion has come to light since 1910. The
Improvements (a reduction In slzo
amounting to 25-1000 of an Inch and
an Increase in weight of hardly over
H dwt.) have all been In tho nature of
refinements mere minute details mak
ing for a more perfect whole. Nearly
all of that Is now behind us and there
exists under present methods little

gamo to squelch It. They have engaged a national detective agency to as
sist them everywhere. The Polo Grounds suffers from tho gambling pest, but
It does not suffer ns strongly as the Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati or St.
Louis parks. Fred Mitchell, head of tho Cubs, says that ho Is going to
withhold the names of his pitchers until tho very last minute, lie believes
that If the gamblers did not know tho names of the hurlers they would
not be so prono to bet.
We doubt the efficacy of Mitchell's measure. Those who follow the
various clubs closely come pretty clcso to knowing just what pitchers will
work on various days. The eradication of the evil lies not so much In the
power of tho manager as It does in tho hands of the park police and tho
men In charge of the non-playing affairs of the club. Gambling killed base
ball crnce, and It threatens more seriously at this time than the average fan
may appreciate. The craze for gambling nnd pools killed the smaller leagues
and we do not believe that they ever will come back In their old strength.
Itnce Tracks Subject to Lcgnllzed Extortion.
Ilace tracks In Ontario havo been notified that they are to bo subject to
a prohibitive tax $10,000 a day for the mllo tracks and $5,000 n day for
tho half mllo "carousels." The truck officials declare that they will not be
able to operate. Some of tho officials of tho Dominion have said that racing
should be encburaged and racing Is about to try to come back there after
six yearn of Inactivity. The tax is Indeed a singular medium of encourage
ment. This question of local taxation of tracks, which obtains in Mary
land too, Is a matter which we cannot understand. If racing is injurious it
should be stopped and the tracks be forced to shut down. If It is not contrary
to tho public welfaro why this extortion by counties, States and politicians?
This extortion, wo are (old, works exceedingly well in a certain State In
which anti-racing laws come up every spring but soon ore dropped. It is
rather a sad commentary.
Dr. Hiimiiinnil Drnlc. Selection ot
Let-elatcr for Olympic Team.
Pr. Cirnemc M. Hammond, chairman
of the American Olympic fencing com
mittee, announced yesterday by way of
comment upon the report that John F.
Lecolster, Jr., of Yale, Intercollegiate
fencing champion, had been chosen to
represent this country In the Olympic
Games, that no selections for the Ameri
can Olympic team would bo made until
n-fter tho national championships, which
tiro to take place next week at tho New
York A. C with tho finals at the Hotel
Astor on May 1.
Dr. Hammond In a letter sent to the
Intercollegiate Fencing Association said :
"The selection of tho Olympic fencing
team will be decided by tho committee
of tho Amateur Fencers League of
America. The committee will announce
the team shortly after tho national
championships. Tho team will be se
lected from tho Amateur Fencers
League of America, the Intercollegiate
Fencing Association, the army mid the
It Is not meant by this letter that Le-
ceister will not bo chosen for the team,
but it is understood that he will not be
named unless his record Is suh that It
compares favorably with those of other
fencers seeking to make the trip.
Tho committee of Philadelphia boxing
experts appointed by Director of Public
Safety Cortclyou to draw up now rules
for tho government of tho sport In that
city has adopted ono rulo that should
ho Included In boxing codes all over
tho country.
Clause 18 provides that tho l;oxer3,
matched for tho chief event on Ihu pro.
gramme must report to tho Buperln
tendent of Police at least 21 hours pre
vious to the contest, and it makes no
difference If tho boxers live In the
Quaker City or come from California.
In ttio event that ono of the main bout
boxers falls to report in nccordanco with
tlio rule the club management I re
quired to so notify tho newspapers and
nlco to post a card at the window of tho
ticket sellers announcing ny substi
tution that may be mido. Announce
ment of tho change of boxers alto must
b. mado from the ring after tho Initial
contest of tho night.
Tho New Jersey Boxing Commission
could not do better than adopt such a
rule, as It would make Impossible whole
inte substitutions, ns was the case at the
last entertainment of the Newark
Sportsmen's Club.
If New York Is fortunato enough to
get a boxing law, thero is small doubt
such a provision will be rut Into force.
There was such a rule on tho books dur
ing the Frawley law, but it was never
Tho Philadelphia rule makers have
honored tho International Sporting Club
by Including many of Its rules in the
new code, notably that clause which
penalizes a boxer with disqualification
If his seconds throw water on him when
he Is In distress. Tho swinging of
towels in tho corners of boxers, which
does llttlo except raise clouds of resin
dust to tho nnnoyance of spectators, Jk
prohibited and fans nro prescribed. An
other excellent rule Is that prohibiting
the advertisement of "grudge" fights,
when as a matter of fact tho contestants
In a majority of boutB ate on friendly
terms. The Quaker rulo mnkers hove
dono very well as far as they hnvo gone,
but until they Increase tho roundB to
ten or twelve and havo decisions thu
port will be lacking,
Marty Collins, who was matched to
meet Jack Wolfo, the prlzo feather
weight of Cleveland, nt .Syracuse to
night, wus unable to fill tho engage
ment, nnd Charley Bcechcr wus substi
tuted. Wolfe may have reason to regret
the ihange.
Battling Murray, tho Quaker bantam,
who is to box Jimmy Wilde ot Cam
don, N. J., to-morrow night, thinks
there will be a knockout during the
encounter. Ho modestly refrains from
naming Wilde as the probable victim.
.Alike O'Dowdils said to bo an unim
pressive champion. Possibly, yet that
opinion Is not subscribed to by his op
ponents. After they nwaknn from their
slumbers they usually Inqu 10 If any
ono got tho number of the automobile
that hit them.
Promoters who offer Carpentlcr large
sums to meet various nomfntltlea In the
ring are wasting time. Carpentler will
do exhibition work only In his coming
tour, and It Is Idle to expect him to do
any real fighting. Tom Gibbons, a me
dlocro light heavyweight. Is tho latest
to offer to fight Carpentler for "any
amount of money."
William Spengler, who won tlio ilgnt
heavyweight title In the A. A. V. State
tourney, broke a bone In hl9 right hand
and will ho on the disabled list for three
weeks. Spengler also Is tho Metropolitan
heavy and light heavy title holder nnd
looks to be the logical representative ot
tho police forco In the International po
lice competition next fall at the Inter-,
natlonul Sporting Club.
It is said that Steelier will Join the
Carpentler entourago when tho Euro
pean heavyweight champion bogins hl
swine around the sporting circle.

"Tho small, heavy ball to-day Is an
expert's tool. It Ib not easy to play It.
It lies close ; It stops only when a player
knows how to stop It, but In tlio hands of
an expert acts beautifully In this respect
and always, let It be remembered, It
arrives by the air route. It Is a finely
tuned, high powored Instrument In
skilled hands and to bar it would with
out question tend to lower the quality
of golf to some degree. It would in a
perceptible manner have a tendency to
lower professional play.
"It has been my observation that It Is
the older golfers (In ngo) who almost
universally favor standardization and
oppose the small heavy ball, both here
and In Britain. A vote taken In Pine
