Tlie Royal Thames Club
Cutter Match
Winners of the Prizes in the First and
Second Class.
The Interest in the Regatta Marred
by "Protests."
London, Jane 2, 18T&
The first of the three Important cutter watch** with
wi'.ch the Thame* yachting sea*on la annually inaugu
rated was sailed yesterday, the Royal Thames Club, as
nsual, opening the ball. In the absence ot His Royal
Highness the Prince of Wale*, the Commodore ol the
club, who was unable to be present owing to a slight
Indisposition, Lord Alfred Paget, the Vice Commodore,
hoisted his flag on board the Eagle steamship, which
carried a goodly contingent ol members and friends.
The weather was everything that could be desired,
there being a bright sun and a good sailing brooze?a
happy coubmaticn of circumstances rarely met with
on the Thsmes?though, perhatts, there wss scarcely
sufficient wind to enable the larger craft to do full jus
tice to themselves, more particularly in the upper
reaches. The entry was extremely good and Included
nearly all the crack cutters afloat, with tho exception
of the Kremhilua, which is still In the sale list, and
a special interest was imparted to the match by the
fact that it was the maiden et-say on the Thames of
both the Neptune and the Vol au Vent. The latter
made a very creditable dgbut, and the lona also, which
has been "altered baclc" to her 1874 trim, showed a
greatly improved vessel, and seemed to be more than a
match' for the Neva, while the old Fiona was as good
as c ver.
The entries were divided Into two classes as under:?
First prize, ?100; second prize, ?40. Time allow
ance?40 to 70 tons, '20 seconds per ton; upward of 70
tons, 15 seconds per Jpn. *

Myosotis 40 Mr. Hunhar M'Master.
Vanessa 20 Mr. Frederick Cox.
The Vanessa came to her station but did not start.
The course for each class was from Rosherville round
tho Mouse Light and back, the distance being about
fllty-three nautical miles. The wind was about east
southeast, a nice whole Ball breeze, which gave them
pretty nearly a dead boat down to the Mouse and a ran
back. The smaller craft were started a few minutes
alter eleven A. M., and five minutes later the larger
vossels were signalled away. All set plain lower canvas
and ran up gafTtopsails over them, tho Myosotis taking
the lead of the smaller fry and standing into Sea Roach
quite K furlong ahead oi the rest, who were in a cluster.
In the first class the Neptune was smartest away from
ber moorings and showed the way down tiravesond
Reach on the starboard tack, followed by the Neva, the
others having seemingly some difficulty In canting
clear of each other. As they tacked into the Lower Hope
the Neva was dangerously close upon tho Neptune's
weather quarter, but had to bear np in order to clear
her, and the other again came out on the Neva's
weather. At the bottom of Sea Reach the Vol an Vent
slawed out to windward of the Cuckoo and tooK third
place, and Just above the Chapman Light the Nova
gave the Neptnne a weather bower and became the
leading vessel. Off the Scar Beacon the Vol au Vent
crossed the Neptune's bows dta the port tack and Im
mediately went about on ber weather. The wind now
Ireabeaed and raised a slight "top" of sea, which, of
course, just suited Colonel Markam's bis cutter, una
?be gradually forereached on the Neva at every board,
though she bad more than once to give way as they
met on opposite tacks. At length, off tbe Jenktn
Buoy, the Vol au Vent succeeded in getting tbe
weather gauge, and a mile lower down the Neva was
weathered in turn by tbe Cuokoo and Fiona, wbo had
previously put the little Neptune under their lee. In
the meanwhile the lona?which, strange to say, had
been put about by the club's stoamboat?was rapidly
making up ber lost ground and overhauled the Nova
lustaa the latter was standing off the Nore Sand on
tho starboard tack. It being ahoal water tbe lona was
nnable to clear her, and a somewhat awkward collision
occurred, tbe Neva striking Mr. Ashbury's cutler on
the Btarboard qnarter and carrying away her own
bowsprit. Tbe lona waa comparatively uninjured, a
big hole in the foot of ber mainsail being the only re
sult ol the mishap. Tbe Neva was, of coarse, com
pletely crippled and, having duly hoisted a protest flag
in her rigging, put back lor Qravesend: bat the lona,
tfcough technically in the wrong, held on her course
closo under tho Ice of tbe Cuckoo and Fiona. From
the Nore to ncarlv the Mouse Light, a distance ol
aboat eight miles, ull worked the last drain of tbe ebb
without further mishap, bat when aboat two miles from
tho cistern extremity of their coarse, the first
If the yoang Hood began to make, 'and at
ine time it seemed to be a question
whether the Commodore would not be compelled to
ii orten the course. Fortunately, however, tbe wind
'reahened and came out a point more southerly, and
the yschts wcro enabled to complete tho prescribed
disianoe. The stronger breeze and open wator bad, In
the meantime, told a tale In favor of tho big cutter,
which gradually workea ber way from tbe rest and was
now making short miles of it down to the Mouse?tbe
Cuckoo, Fiona and lona being upward or a third ot a
mile astern of her, in close oompany. Bjr this time all
tlio larger vessels, with the exception of tbe Neptane,
bad overhauled the smaller class, among which the
Coralie held a long lead, the Britannia and Myosotis
being next In attendance, each with a protest flag (ly
ing in her rigging. The Bloodhound had been well io
windward ol the lot at the Nore Ligbtahip; bat a little
lower down she had the bad lack to lose one of her
hands overboard, and waste! something I ke ten min
utes in lowering a boat?a mi'hap which there can bo
oo doubt cost her a prise. Oil the East Oaze Buoy the
leaders came about lit turn on tne starboard tack and
were timed as they weathered the Mouse Lightship as

With the wind some two points abaft tho beam, It
was nearly a dead run home, and all as they rouuded
sot over their boom* to port, and rigged out spinna
kers to port, the VoI-au-Vent setting a second spinna
ker, Jib lashion, to ber bowsprit, and supplementing
it with a v uter sail under ber boom. The lona and
* Fiona shifted working topsails lor ballooners, and also
set jib topsails and waicrsails, while the Cuckoo also
got up a Jib topsail over a balloon loresall. Thus can
' vssed. all bowled merrily along for home, reeling off

Thla, it will be seen, was another extremely close

marred by a series ot protests, the Corslie, Myosotis
and Britannia each objecting to tbe other lor not
observing the "rale or the road" In the beat down

prises and submit the points la dispute to the Sailing

[From the London Globe, June 2.]
In the Interests of yachting it is highly desirable
bat mstcbes should be sailed without ?nch frequent
irotests. The Royal Thames Club's races yesterday
fore perfect in every particular but this. A nice,
?hole-sail breese, a fleet comprising tbe Onset ratters
jelocging to the pleasure navy ol England, tbe sun
Jgbt just sufficient to add brlliianey to the seen*
without too high a temperature, and sech a near raoe
?hat It waa impossible to tell which boat would
? win, until tho last moment?this exceptional con
Junutnre of Uvorable nircumaUuioea waa deprived
?I naif Ita pleasure by tho jealous manner In which
some of the yachts were nulled. !a the first duns, the
l?u* won la uot give way to the Neva, with the result
that tbe latter lost bar bowaprit when attempting to
avoid a more serious collision. Of courno her mailer
at once hoisted a protest flag, and took bis crippled
vessel back to Gravesend. In the second class there
was even more of tbe mme objectionable Jetlouky
shown. Out of the live 40-tonuers ttiat started, uo less
than tbree hoisted protest ila.s, and (he prices there
fore remain In ubeyunce pending inquiry into the sev
eral objection* We sincerely trust liuu the owners of
racing yachu> will net their faces against such prac
tices. It entirely lies with them to conviuo* their
skippers that the sharp tricks which tiud favor at
suburban race meetings are altogether out of pbico on
the water. So long as owners practically show that
they consider such jockeyiatu a merit, so long will
captains endeavor to prove their superior smartness by
Inlriuglng the rulos o! jailing. One of the regulations
of the new Yacht Racing Association very properly
punishes any captain guilty of such equivocal strata
gems by disqualifying htm for tho remainder of tho
season. Perhaps it would be better IT the peccant
yacht were also placcd under ban. This might inllu
ence owners to teach their masters to keep within the
limits o! fair sailing. "Win, tie or wraugle" ia not a
good maxim for yachtsmen.

During the visit of the Prince ot Wales to Calcutta
every incident, however trivial, lu which be took part
waa duly recorded to tbo newspapers (and most prop
erly, too) cxcept oue event, which by some tnigchuuce
was almost completely overlooked by tho city's jour
nalists, and yet It was one which His Koyul Highness
ut any rato did not look on as the least Interesting item
of the programme, and by rnauy people wiu> regarded
us tbe most attractive disn of the Menu, Irom having
lu It a strong spice of sport. That event was the match
between the Calcutta Polo Club and tbe team ol Muuni
poork-K, who came down under cnarge of Dr Broun to
play before the Prince.
The match arose In this way. When a visit from
tbe Prince of Wales became, to tbe Joy of bis toyaj
Anglo-Indian subjects, a postlivo certainty, tt was de
sired to make up an interesting programme
for his ontertaiument, and it was well thought that
bo would like to see a good game at polo,
as tbe sport, which Immediately on Its in
troduction Into tbe British Isles took such a violent
hold on the public fancy, was throughout honored by
tbe patronage of royalty. Munnlpoor Is the bomo of
the sport In India. Its Inhabitants aro recognized as
tbe most learned exponents of tbe gamo extant; quito
unapproachable in the scieaoo, and, ergo, invincible.
On the afternoon of Saturday. January 1, the match
took place. The fair-skinned amateurs were clothed
In white breeches and top boots aud flannel racing
Jackets of tho club colors?via., white with a broad
scarlet sash crossing over the left and under tho right
shoulder, and, oompared to tbelr antagonists, wero the
personification ot clcgatico and agility, their attire bo
ing natty in tho extreme, and tbuir ponies, ou which
they sut with tho ease and grace peculiar to tbo Eu
ropean seat, beiug sleek and well groomed.
The dusky professionals were clothed in a costume
striking to the European eye from its originality ot oe
sign, unique though hardly picturesque. Their heads
wete oiulllod up In dirty puggories; their bodies were
covered with Jackets of divers colors, all of a dingy
hue, and thu Inevitable dhootie; and between
the kuee aud ankle they woro "thiugs" somewhat
retoinoliug cricket pads. The unusual quantity of
clothing we conclude was donned in honor ol tbu liela
tee l:ajah, lor wnen they first appeared in public thty
*or? little except a hockey stick.
wore shaggy, unkempt and ungroomed, and the saddle
gear almost beyond description. Tho saddles were a
kind oi a cross betweeu a pi.'ion and an eluphaul how
ilak. They havo a Iramewuik ol skin and wood which
rests ou the pouy's back, and above is xoit leather tor
the riders. At the back is a sort of hollow to sit in.
In trout of this comes a kind ol mound, goodue**
knows what for, and iu trout ol this is n curved wood
work frame, like a pairot bull's horns, over which
their reius aro hliclicd uow and again. They cling to
their caddies like monkeys, their nakod feet rammed
into rough iron stirrups braced up so short that their
thighs are at right angles to their hips. Ilan^lug irom
each side of the saddle aru articles of the same color
and material, and very much the same sbapo as carriage
splash-boards. Thu stirrups bang inside them, and ihu
two sides ot tbu article are curved round away Irom
tho ponies' sides aud in trout ol the players' logs, the
object ot theui being apparently wo-loid?viz., to pr>
tect the players' legs, and to extract the speed ol ter
ror out ol lliu ponies, lor wl>en they get Into action the
spiasb-boards m.<ke's noise hiceous enough to Irighton
the most stout-hearted. Tho prettiest part of tbe get
up was
; which were made ol scarlet cloth, dotted over with
| while worsted bails, and the ruing w?.re ol a thick plaited
substance and light blue color.
I were a strong, wiry looking lot, but wore an anxious
| exprostiou, ar.siDg, porliups, lrotu excos? ol keeuut-'sa
1 to win, rumor saying that they get "toko" Irom the
Usjab it they do nut distinguish themselves. The Cal
cutta team, In perfect cunlldoiico ol being utterly
beaten, had no auxiuty on this scoro, and commenced
the gaino therolore in a raoro favorable frame ol mind.
was as follows:?Calcutta?Forward, Hills, Mooro,
Wallace; hall' backs, W. L. 1 human and Fox; back. O.
J E. Thomas. The Munnipoories ranged very difleroutly,
! and the order tboy took showed the |? culiarity ol thoir
game. They had one man back and three forward, and
I of the remaining two one posted i-'imsclf between lite
1 Calcutta halt backs aud the other alongside the Calcutta
back. This rather astonished the world in general,
and the players alluded to in particular. Wherever iho
> Vicissitudes of the game took the latter there went ah<o
I these attendant sprites, aud would not be shaken oil'.
It bad one good effect, lor It made the Calcutta backs
keep their eyes open and most careful to seo that their
back territories were never left for an lustant on
as usual, from the centr-' of the grouuJ, aud from the
start to the close may well be described as last and
lurious, high pressure being maintained throughout
without abatement. It was one of the quickest and most
interesting games ever witnessed, and the play was ad
mirable. It was expected tbe sides would be most unequal,
and this being the impression thero was not at the
outset much onthuslasm. the only leeling in the bosoms
of spectators being one of curiosity, but as tbc game
got into lull swing, and it was seou that, Instead ol be
ing overpowered, the Calcutta men wero fully holdiug
their own, It gave way to excitement, which became
Intense when, alter a sharp struggle, tbe Calcutta
team scored "first blood'' by making a goal. Loud
cheering then arose, and tbe other members of tbo
club, who had hitherto been depressed and almost
silent on-lookers, awoko as Irom a trance, aud for the
rest of tbe matcn encouraged and aided their rep
resentatives by cheering advice and enthusiastic
shouts. Tbo Hunnipoonts who were looking on
gruutcd guttural dismay when tbe first goal was made,
and looked as If they did not. altogether like too ap
pearance of things. After a brier respite
was liegun. l.lko the first game it wss obstinately con
tested, but, unlike tbe previous game, the goal was
secured by tbe Muunlpoories, whoso dismay iu con
sequence changed to guttural glee. One goal all. Ex
citement great as the third game bewail.
Tbe Munnipoones came up smiling; the Cal
cutta men serious but determined. A vain a
long exciting struggle; but eventually a resolute lash
of the Calcutta team carried the hall right up to their
adversaries' go:.l, and alter a short, sharp sculilo It waa
smacked through the posts, and Calcutta were victors
of the third goal. Two goals to one.
Aboriginals growling gloomy expletives. Alter a
change of ponies the fourth game began, and It was
soon apparent that tbe second horses of the Calcutta
men wero not equal to the first, tbo result of which
was that tbe ball remained throughout the game In un
pleasant proximity to their goal, through which it was
eventually bit, tbe Munnipoories thus winning tbo
fourth game, and again putting themselves on an
equality with Calcutta, the state of the match on thu
commencement of the Uftb game being two goals all. 1
Time was now short, and both sides buckiod-to In
earnest lor
a slight gleam of tbe savage breaking out on tbe one
srtu, while tbe aspect of the other was one of dugged
determination. Tbe Muuntpoories, who bud a held of
pomes to cbooso from, bad a decided pull alter the i
change of nags, which was aguin evident from the |
plsv, and throughout this last camo tbe ball was more |
ofteu at the end of the Calcutta goal than tbe other. 1
The defence, however, was atsnch, and several vig- 1
orous sorties were made by the Calcutta men Into tho
enemy's country. The Munnipoories, however, would
not be denied, and prursod the siege close, bat the Csl
cutta team successfully repelled all attacks, and at
last, dusk setting In,
and tbe victory was neither to tbo black man nor tho
white man
Thus did this memorable and exciting match end in
a draw, both sides having scored two goals.

An Interesting nnd exciting pigeon shooting context
came oil to-day, on tho ground* or the Uun Club,
Xotting mil, bctwoen Captain Aubrey Fulton, the
celebrated Monaco winner, and Mr. Ira D. Paine, for
?00 a aide, thirty shots each, at twenty-aevon yard*
rue. A number of the title or English iporumen were
present The shooting was remarcably good, I'aine's
quick, decisive style being very much admirod. His
charge* consisted ol 3 drachms powder and 1 oy_
shot Nos. 0, 7 or 8, while his antagonist used 3^
powder and 1 \ oi the same shot. The match was
arraug'd to commence at halt-past twelve o'clook, but
Caputin Patton not betn?' quite to time, a short match
?u gotten up between Mr. Jati'rsv, of America, and an
Kngilsb gentleman named Grimble, ten shots each,
lor ?10 a slao, which resulted in a victory for tho
former, the score being as follows:?
Ju?iT-l, 1, 1, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1-0.
Ukimulk?1, 1, U, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1?9.
Mr. l'nine then ilrod a lew sight shots, killing threo
pigeons in succession in a manner that seemed rather
to stagger the spectators, aud his antagonist Arriving
about ono o'clock the American opened the match by
disposing ol the llrst bird, firing both barrel*, and tut
tiug his mark a lew feci from the trap. Captalo Pat- l
ton tnen also scored one by un interior stint, tbe li.rd
having laileu Just within tho boundary, i'lte Captain j
jokingly remarked to his rival thai ho had anyhow '
uegun with a good stroke ot luck. I'nlne Missed his j
second bird, and was thus one behind when ration's
second shot winged his pigeon at a long dUtance, tho
original state ol thing* being restored, however, by
l'aine's third sbat taking etlect beiore tho bird had
down a yarn, ration then ktissod three birds la sde
cession, and Palne's next thron shots piacod hi in ahead
by two, one dropping beyond tho lence.
Both meu seemed now thoroughly on their mettle,
iilbelt the* went about their work quietly and easily.
Tli'.- onlookers evinced a keen Interest; wliilu tho bet
ting iratornlty wore obliged to ic>epa share lookout,
on account of the even nature ol the contest Alter
the nrat ten shots Puine had scored seven and Patton
six, and the American's form was very much admired,
nearly all his birds falling within a few feet of tbe trap.
His twelfth and thirti-enih turds needed but otio barrel ]
each. Up to ibis tlmo the Knglislimai had also kil ed
two bins wiih ? Ingle shots, but did not afterward im- j
prove iii thin respect, whereas I'ftine shot In all fire
pigeons without bringing tbe socoiid barrel Into requi
sition. When the matca was
Putt on was one bird ahead, and tbe betting rose in his
lavor, when, wet of twsniv-live shots esch. Paino had
only scored 17 against his adversary's 10. Palne's
friends now began tn think bo had lost tho match ; but
his characteristic quiet self-possMswn did not desert
him, snd he ki.lcd four birds out ol Ina re
maining live against Captain I'm ion's two. The letter
gentlemen had tbe last shot, and stood to kill and win,
but unaccountably missed tbe bird, although it rose
from tho centre trap, thus bringing ab at ? drawn
battle. The greatest good humor ami cordiality jire
valled, Patton frequently heartily applauding the suc
cess of bin opponent. Tbe shooting of both contest
ants was excellent. Patton sometimes mad* aa good
bits as i'aine, and it wotild be unfair as things stand to
proclaim either a be'.ter marksmau tbsn iho other.

The concluding (ama o( tbe billiard tournament at
Irving Hull wu played last night between Albert Gar
nit*r ituii George Slosson. Tbe cnniei-t, although not
belonging to tbo tournament proper, was a play-off on
the tie lor Ibird place, lludoiphe having won tbe first
aud Sexton tbe second pruu respectively, liy tbo re
sult of tbe gauie last night tbe third money goes to
Gamier, wtto beat Slossun by fifty ntno poluts.
Tbe guine commencod at 8h. 10m., botn stringing lor
lead, which was won by Garuler, who led oil with tbe
wblte ball. On the first shot bo was lucky enough to
score und bring tbe bulls into position, and rau up a
break of 10, when ho got a freeze In tbe left band bot
tom corner, and the lialU were spotted. Ho tailed to
score further and lot Slosson In for 4. In tbe nest two
tuning* Gamier tnade but 1 and Slosson 3. Garuler on
h:s fourth baud rolled up a pretty break
of 27, and missing nn easy cirrom gave
Slosson a set up, which bo utilised for thirty by stoady
play, when thu balls froze and had to be spotted. He,
however, succeeded in scoring, and after a couple of
shots got tbe ivories into positiou at the bottom
cushion aud nursed thorn along to tbo left baud side
cushion, up which lie travelled them until he brought
thorn to tho top, when he carried thorn ulong that
cushion and down part ol tho lourth cushion
on tho way back to tho original place of starling,
scarcely separating tbe balls until ho had scored 236
points, when by a careless rhot they became ?lightly
scattered, au>l ho hud to muko a succession ol all-round
play to got tbe balls into position, which he dually did
at the centre of the top cushion, whore he held them.
On scoring his 250th point he was given a p?r
lect ovation, tho cheering and uppluuse beiug
long and continued. He, however, .-'till wonted stead
ily ? ?n, and when ho reached 2tf7 points, tho highest
score ever made In a three null game (by >cxtun in the
Philadelphia tournament), the applause wna something
deafening, and when he added yet another poiut llic
same Hung was repeated. Garuler in the mean- {
tune w;ih exhibiting the greatest good tempered and I
although astonished at the great ran 8 loss on was
making, could not but admlro the pluv and smiled good
liumoredly as every leu was added to his opponent's
string. Slosson. however, nothing aflectcd hy the up.
plunge ol tho audience, playod steadily on until be had
rolled up a total ot 311 points,
when he slipped up on a not very dlthcult carrom. The
nudienco by their applause prevented tho game being
continued, tor tliuy literally shook the building. Gar
uler, on Slosson finishing his break, rose Intra his
chair, und shaking bands with him. heartily congratu
lated him on lits brilliant play and good fortune.
As soon as quiet was restored Gurnlcr went to tbo cue,
and by dint of sheer good play captured 22 points and
retired after mi-sing a long shot Slosson off tlio
leave only secured 2 points, lioth players in the next
inning failed to count. 1 it tlio next, or tho sevontli,
lulling Uarnler scored 1 und Slos-on 12. This was fol
lowed by a brilliant exhibition ol billiards by Gnruier,
who played a break lor ICO points, bringing bis Total to
170. against his antagonist's 332. 81om>oii went in and
put together'24 more earronw, and missed a compara
tively easy shot, which left a ISlr sot-up for Garuior,
who s<ored 13 and then got u freeze, and tho balls
had to be spotted. Ho wus fortunate enough
to score, aud alter a eouple of gathering

Tbe Saratoga committee have nearly completed a
truck to be used In tho races at this July meeting. It
Is modelled on one of tbo tattest trucks lor podestriana
In tbe world?that ol the Cambridge University A'.Untie
Club. In length It will be a littln ovor on'-Uflh of a
mile, and will be laid in tho following mannerTwo of
tho sides 110 yards long a- d two 64 yards long, with
very gradual curves. Tbe ashes, which have not yet
been laid, will bo put on so as to rantu tho track
slightly In tbo centre, with an imperceptible slopo
toward the pole, s-> that tbo washing ol rain may he
avoided. In tho oentro of tho oval will ran a carefully
preparod turl "oraase" ior tbu use ol the hurdlers.
This cro '?o will be 120 yards long and 50 loet wido,
with ten hurdles, at ' a distance ol ten yur Js
apart, and u take-off ol tl.tcen yards at
each end. (iood hurdle time has never boon
mad.' in this country, owing to the poorness of tho
hurdles used, i h's year a good deal ot care will bo
given to their construction,' and tbe ground will tm
put into the best possible condition, In order to make
the take-otl as springy as possible. Tbe whole held
will be ouclosod, and a grand stand, with dressiug
rooms underneatb It, will be oreciod on a bit ol rising
ground overlook ng tho whole course, while at oue cud
ol the truck and tnsuto the oval it is proposed to put a
tent, decorated with tbe colors ol the aillerent colleges,
tor the use ol the competitors. Judging Irom tho prep
arations which are going on It Is prolMtble that the
Held uill present a very picturesque sight, with its
greensward, neat turf, well ashed track und trimly
urrangod hurdles, set oil' by the white canvas and
bright bitntiug at oue end uud opposed by the dark
green plues wuioh cluster thickly in tho adjoining lot,

441. k. , against 4m. 58a, oy Cojielaiid, ol Cornwall, the
year before; In the bulf-rr.ile, when Trumbull, of Y<i'.e,
llulshed In 2iu. OJfcs., aii>l lu the tlirej-ralle, which
Morrelt. ol Amber?i, landed in l?ra. winning
with apparent easu. With tbeso sixteen colleges on
hand this year it will be surprisinic >1 past records ar<
not outdone. Indeed, with Uie exception ol tbe throo
mllo walk, there aio few college associations which
have not better records thuii wore made ut the meeting
ol tho New York Athletie ClGb on Ha regular altsletic
track, at the moetini; two weeks s#o; and if the crack
men lr mi tbe different college ciubs are set against
e ich other wo may look lor some clipping races next
As to thn representative* iu the different events
Yale will prolmbly liuve a good man ia lor the half mile,
as Trumbull's time has not iieen beaten yet, and Wake
man, of tho same <ollege, bnt sliown himscll able to
clear lh? hurdles eu.-liy In 10 seconds. Barber and
Copelutid, if tbe latter would train a little more care
fully, wou'd make n Hue race lor the mile, aud no one
doubts Uiuir ability to put) the tinio down below
4m. 4os. If both were well practiced. Union boosts a
runner nble to bent Culver, who won tho quarter so
handily last year In '<5'.,seconds, and (ieyann, ol the
Cnltersity ol Pennsylvania, who ran in the 10U yarda
dash. Is sccredltcd with better time than bis victor,
Hotter, of Corn till, maue last July. Tho ibree-mtle Is
anybody's race who has given long onough time to his
preparation (17m. 0714*. )? though tho best time on rec
ord lor an Americau amateur would make the winner ol*
the ssmo race In the last ox lord-Cantab sports laugh,
when It was done III 16m. llin, slid throo yearn ago It
was made, in tho midst of u know storm, by two uni
versity men, who ran a dead heat, lu 16m. 44s. So thai
there Is plenty of room lor improvement In tlmt qusr
tor before we can attempt a rivalry with our English
As to the wslkiBg. Taylor, of Harvard, has probably
tbe best chance lor both events. Ills record ot
Tin. 33'.>? lur the mile, at his college sp< rislast tail, baa
not been approached by nuy undergraduate, aud Ins
style improves with practice, ol which bo haa nevef
