Tciitdo, Ohio, Aug. 8. Harry Vardon
and Edward Ray, the celebrated British
professional golf pair, to-day had their
first turn around tUe courac of the In
verness Golf Club, where they are to
try for the national open championship
of the 1 'tilted States this week, when
ill a best ball match they defeated the
I local pair of expert, Charlie Lorma of
Inverness and D. K. White of Bylvanla,
hy 2 up. So far ns tho two visitors were
concerned the contest was both a mat
ter of convenience and business, as, In
addition to collecting their usual ealilbl-
lion fee, Vardon and Ray got un op-
mii t unit v to irlvc the title circuit a
j thorough going over. m
In Inverness the professionals have
found a course to their liking. Some
say that It Is the best that they have
had hi years fur a championship and
not a word of adverse criticism has
been heard, n situation that Is rather
novel, for the average pro is exacting
when It comes to a course for a na
tional meet. Vardon and Rav were not
a bit behind the Others in their praise.
Inverness Is fortunate in having tnif
that la real golf course turf, Bad lies
I iuu Mid am found unless the player
makes llicm for himself, and, while lib
erally studded with all the undulations
called for In modern links nrehlture,
the greens are at all times true.
First impressions of Inverness are ait
to be deceiving, for while the player Is
liable to do well on his Initial round
many have been heard to declare that
the course grows more difficult with each
round. Why this should he is not so
very clear, but It Is possible the answer
may be found In the fact that once the
player has givnn the course the first
scrutiny he then goes after a score and,
being too careful with his shots, gets
into more trouble than he ahould.
While not overdone In bunkering, there
l a sufficiency of hazards about the
I Inverness links. These, too, are usually
they will punish shots that have been
played with too little regard for direc
tion or have got out of control through
some error of swing or execution.

course. However, already many of the
experts, both profesalonal and amateur,
are quickly rounding Into championship
form, and If the weather Is at all fa
vorable It Is tiosslble that one or more
players will average a good deal better
than 74 for each round.
Leo Idegel, the young Detroit alar, al
ready has covered the course In "0.
which was his card u Saturday, nnl
to-day there were several equal with or
better than par, which Is 72. Ray and
l.ornies each went round In this figure,
so it is Just possible that those who have
been talking 296 for a winning mark
may be errlnsr on Ihe side of safety. Ray-
It has to be remembered, waa making h's i
first trip around the link.
On the other hand the off Mais of llu
Inverness club' have any number of tees
which they will throw Into commission
on Tuesday when the first qualifying
round Is to he played. This should add
many yards to the course and stiffen It
up a shot or two. Length, however,
does not bother the expert. What he
demands Is n fair showing on his shots
through the green and a chance to sink
the putt that Is well timed and nccurstely
directed. All this, It Is generally agreed,
the Inverness course furnishes.

Although not nlwsys on the line, Ray
to-day swung a mighty driver and

Madison Square Garden Sporting Club. I
Th aciduloua obaervatioius in question
have reference to the opinions held by
the official of each club relating to the
official of the other club.
Tex Rlckard recently announced ibai I
his club would bid for all the great j
boxing matches that atmeared on the
pugilistic, horlxon, and he Intimated ne
would be more successful than the
matchmaker of the International club
In securing desirable boxing attractions
for hi arena.
Thl brought forth a reply from
Adam Emple, secretary of Ihe Interna
tional Sporting Club, on behalf of the
officials of thi l organisation, aa fol
lows :
"A report has been published In ref
erence to an enterprise which Is being
1 nched by a certain boxing promoter
for the purpose of holding boxing nnd
istlier kindred sports In this city.
The enterprise above named can ex
ercise no prejudicial effect on the pros
pects of this club, because it is solely a
commercial speculation, depending for
its succeis upon profits which it may
make, while ours is a membership club
In which the commercial element has
no part.
"The public will be admitted to the
bouts of the enterprise referred to,
while our club will be exclusively for
members and their friends.
.Members of our club will, of course,
be ndmltted free to their own seats,
which will be specially assigned to them,
while members of the new organljatlon
will bo compelled to pay for their seats.
"Boxing will take place there at com
paratively Infrequent interval, while
our club will have boxing entertain
ments once a week for nine months
during the year, as ia the case with the
National Sporting Club of London.
"Our club will, aa In the case of the
National Sporting Club of London, spe
cialise in boxing, while In the new en
terprise boxing will be one of a number
of other kindred sports.
"The new enterprise will bear the
same relation to this club as the enter
prise of Mr. Cochrane bears to the Na
tional Sporting Club of London.
"In conclusion, tha management begs
to slate that it was, as at present con
stituted, solely responsible for all the
matches that were made at the enter
tainments which were held at the Com
modore Hotel and more recently at New
ark. It is gratifying to stRte'that new
members are being enrolled in large
numbers, and at no state of Its existence
has the fulfilment of the club's alms
been more assured than thev are to
day." It does not appear that Rlckard threat
ened anything prejudicial to the Inter
national Club, but unquestionably with
two guch powerful organizations In the
field the bidding for matches Is hound
to be lively. P
The merits of both the Oniernaiional
Sporting Club and of Tex Rlckard are
well known. The International club, as
a result of the tireless energy of Will
iam A. Gavin, managing director, was
chiefly responsible for the passage of
the Walker bill. Mountainou obstacles
were overcome by the club officials,
with the result that this State will soon
have fifteen round bouts to a decision.
in addition, a rules committee ap
pointed by the club drew up what is
unquestionably the best set of boxing
rule ever printed, and these regulations
will, nnde.- tho terms of the Walker law,
he enforced in every bout held In this
The organizers' of the International
Club have drawn into that association

Forty-two additional entries have keen
received, bringing the entire list up to
240 players. This constltutea not only a
record for an American open champion
ship but for the world. It better the
American mark by fifty or sixty. The
largest field that ever played In the Brit
ish championship was 210.
How to handle this mas of golfers Is
a problem, for with the original list of
198 the first pair was to have gone off
at 8:30 and the last at 4:30. providing
the schedule did not fall behind. Mr.
Vanderpool hat wired from N'ew Tork
that a atart will have to be made as
early aa 7 o'clock In the morning and
that the late comer not provided for
up to 8:30 wBave to fall In after all
the others ar off.
This probably mean that from 7 In
the morning the contestants will be play
Ing up to 8 o'clock at night or later.

13 Shippers Blunder Over
Manhasset Bay Course.
Fort Washington, I. i Aug. 8 All
but fhreo of th sixteen skipper that
started In one of the series of Interclub
races of the star class this afternoon
misunderstood Instructions given hy the
regstta committee and the races In both
divisions proved farcical. The races were
held over the six mile triangular course
of the Manhasset Bay Tacht Club.
A stiff breeze was blowing and the
prospects of a spirited race were bright
when the yachts crossed the starling
line. Thirteen starters, five In class A
and eight 1n class B, wer disqualified.
Instead of following Instructions and go
ing around the far buoy, they went In
side of it.
Yachtsmen who were witnessing the
race from the .Manhasset Bay Yacht Club
were amased at tha apparent lack of at
tention given to the instructions. W. L,
Inslee, sailing th Taurus, under tha
burgee of the Bayild Tacht Club, was
the first to turn for home, going Inside
the buoy. Other yachtsmen followed
him, but when Adrian Iaalln n., sailing
th Snapper, reached the buoy he went
around it and George W. Elder, Jr., also
took the long route.
The Inslee yacht, B. L. Llnkfleld, In
the Mala, and Gordon Curry, in the
Aqiillla, finished close together, In the
lad of the fleet, but the committee did
not pay any attention to where they
finished. The Snapper beat the Saturn
across the finish Una and' waa awarded
the point accruing to th winner.
The only one of the class B yachts to
finish waj Southern Cross, sailed by Ar
thur Knapp.
