Newport's Fashionable Gathering Flocks to Casino Courts to See Country's Leading Tennis Players Perform 13 ' FEW TOPHOTCHERS FAIL TO WIN ON NEWPORT COURTS Work of Johnson, Williams and Jsp Experts Features Opening Hatches. MANY NEW YORKERS ENTER SECOND ROUND Nwwr. It I., Auf. 14. On of th test fields of tcnnU players that ever competed In a tournament In thla country ban play In the second annual Invita tion tourney on the famous Casino court here thla morning. They came . ''' 'rom nil parte of the country, pre- ceded by reputatloni of their proweaa at tha neta. In the white uniformed brigade that aallled forth to do battle with their tried and true racquets were many of the htfheit ranking playere In America, Count Balm of Austria and a pair of for eign champtona In the peruana of Itchlya Kumaga and llachlahlro Mlkaml of Japan. Bo renowned were the playera and ao brilliant kii tlio assemblage tlmt gathered around the picturesque enclu- aure that It recalled vividly th famou all comers tournament that wai held tiers for so minv veara. After scanning the list of contestants, tha only players of note who were miss ing were Maurice E. McXoughlln, the California Comet; William J. Clothier, a former national title holder, and R. LUid ley Murray, tha Indoor champion, and all three of them will be here to-morrow, long before the hour for the atart tha fashionable crowd of lovers of the sport began to gather. A majority came to witness and applaud good tennis and all of them were keenly Interested In , comparing the work of the men of tho 12ast and the West and the pair from tha Flowery Klncdom. Good Tennis Aplenty. And few were disappointed. They saw good tennis, excellent tennis, tho kind that made them foriret anv charrln that usually cornea to one who aces his favorite go down to defeat. So splr lted and keenly contested were a ma jority of the matchea that the spectators forgot their sympathies and npplauded each victor whether friend or foe. To add xplce to the day's sport Mlaa Molla UJurstedt, tho Norse Ctrl, who holda our national women's title, played f)llver I'erln of the Casino committee 11 a special match on the grand atand Court to decide aome large wagers. Miss BJurstedt heraelf bet a substantial sum that she could defeat her masculine op ponent and hundred! of fashionables did ' tha aame. The stalwart girl from Norway out played I'erln at all stages of the game and those who had confidence In her ability cashed large auma us odds of 3 to 1 and laid against her chances. Her Milling forehandets were too much for I'erln and she won In straight sets at I C, 00. Johnston's Work Features. While every pair that went to the nets attracted attention It was William L. 1 Johnston of California, the national cham pion, who was tho reul magnet on the I field. His mighty reputation drew the majority of onlookers to his court, und when he lined up against Douglas Champltn of 1'rovlUence he was the cyno sure of all eyes. Although Johnston know the weak nesses of his opponent and knew he could score an easy victory, even knew that lie could win In straight sets, he played oj4 hard and tlieleuly as though hie crown depended on the result. All of his strokes ran smoothly and he devoted moat of hlii time to deep court game, and from there sent forth his low ground strokes, his nllping buck handers and all the other strokes of his large repe tolre. Resides he swung his racquet as true and as taultlesnly as he ever did In his phenomenal career. As a reward he won in straight sets at C 2, C 3, 6 3. Easy fur Williams. It Norrls Williams 2d'a game came In for much Inspection. This famous knight of the courts opposed a fiery young player from New Orleans named A. A. Waters. The former Harvard star, who carried off the honor n this tourna ment last year, won the match In straight sets at 6 1, 6 - and 6 0, but this was accomplished more because of the bad playing by his opponent thun by his own good work. Ail that was necessary for Williams to win the match was to feed tho ball to Waters und let the young Southerner bring about his own downfall with drives that landed everywhere but on the court. Williams at times was nearly as un steady. He bungled short drives as he came running at the net and at close range he repeatedly cut the ball down too quickly. It seemed us though he were tired, for ho favored deep court, from where he could scoro with the least exertion. Japs Show to Advantage, The two Japanese won without ap preciable dlfllculty. Kumagse, display ing a versatile und strong catnc on the champlonshW) court against James tt. O'Neale of New York, won In straight sets, at 0 1, 6 3, C 3, and hie com patriot, Mlkaml, ilcfeated J. W. Merrl hew of New York In straight sets at 61, C 2, 61. Count Halm did not fare pi well as the Japaneto. Tho Austrlun played rather ragged tennis, nnd fell before the strokes of Dick llarto, the tinted Harv.ud football player, who won ut 6 1, 6 2, 61. a Stew York plaera carried ofAa fair share of the honors, as eleveff-nf Its representatives wero returned vlctom. They were II, H. I'arker, F. C, Inmun. W, M. Washburn, li. C. Johnson, F. C. Hunter, L. E. Muhan. Leonard lieckman, I'. H. Pfaffman, W M. Hall, Kobert Leroy and Charles M. Hull, Jr. Few Kxlra, Matches. Extra net matches were few and far between. Itobert I.ernv ind Joseph J, Ai mat rone of Philadelphia wer t fortunate winner of two matches that went four sets. Leroy found u Woithy foO In James XI CushliiR of New York. Cushlng has plenty of ntlng In IiIh lino splitting drives nnd compelled the forinor Intercollegiate champion to trnvel fast about the rourts In order to win nt 75, 46, 62 nnd S 6. It was leroy's wonderful placing that earned him tho match. 1 Armstrong received it surprise from l'red Hsksh of New York. The latter wa In h fighting mood, and the inoro Armatrong clipped the ball the more ho dug It up. Half volley driven mioii be rame rtaggs's specialty, and he did re markably well, but failed to win, as the llnnl score was 75, 46, 62, 86.

Kllent Martin, tho deaf mute boxer, who was notified tn appear before the commission In reference to receiving niu,.- moiiry xixiin inc iiroauwny noon- confront hli accusers. When Martin was seen later on and asked why he had not gone before the commission, ha wrote on u slip of paper: "I dlffWt hear any or- 'llltig mu up before tha com mission." Another complaint was made sgslnst the newer City Club by the Airdrome A. C, also of Itochcster, to the effect that the former club, which has always run Friday nights, now announces that it will In future hold Its shows Monday nights, the night that the Airdrome A.

Inasmuch ns Wcnck recently compelled the threa tlubs operating at Itockaway to agree on different nights for their bouts, ha will recommend to his fellow commls sloners that the Itochcster clubs be mada lo do likewise.

I'tmn re- cently beat a newspaper man nnd now the pugnacious manager Is defending a suit fur $1,000 on account of n one round victory over an Ice wagon driver named David McCallen of Cleveland. A Cleve land account of the battle follows: "Ac cording to I O. Schooler, nttorney for McCallen.

In the opposite corner sat Ceorge (Sudfrey, Known as Old Choco late, The bout did not take place for tha reason that the police appeared before the boxers pot their hands up. Parson Davles, who was present on this occa sion, gave the Information to me. Itockaway llouf To-night, Jimmy Coffey, the Mohawk Indian, thoiiKli not tho last of the tribe, wilt need all lis war paint, feathers and war wimops when he faces Walter Mohr at John Hei-ler's Itockaway lleach Club to night. Mohr Is one of tho greatest war riors that ever put on 11 glove, and If It was 11 battle with tomahawks the llrook Ivtilto would win In :i hurry. As It la Mohr Is very forgetful of the rules of the boxing game and Is apt to do tome- thing that may bring matters to an un pleasant close. If Mohr would change his style and depend on clean bovltig nnd hitting, he would be 11 most dangerous contender for the title. Another mysterious foul Is the one al leged to havo been committed by Young; Zulu Kid to the dlscomtlture of Aba Friedman ut the Washington Sports Club last Satuiday night. When Fried man was examined bv the club physician lie reported be could Und no evidence that the disabled boxer had rcceled an Illegal blow.
