While each of these has a host of friends there are no racegoers who will deny that Man o' War Is a great cijtt In the opinion of most men here (e Is not only a speed marvel but bo can carry weight and travel a dis tance. According to form they could have no other opinion. The handsome chestnut has started six times and each time defeated hla field with ridiculous case. He has not been touched by either whip or spur yet and both Mr. Riddle and Louis Feustel, his trainer, predict he will so through the season art unwhlpped colt. That he is a valuable horse was made evident a few days ago when Montford , Jones offered 2150,000 for him. Mr. Riddle turned down this offer with the ' terse reply that he is not for sale and When pressed, ended the discussion by eying he was locked up in his barn wj might Just as well be in Jail so Cff as any one else had a chance of getting him. Solders Broom Another Fast Colt. In Golden Broom Mrs. Jeffords has what most horsemen say Is Man o' War's worthiest rival. Ho Is a big, trapping colt by Sweeper and Zuna and h,as as much epeed and stamina as any man's horse. But it is a question of whether or not he can handle weight - as welt as Mr. Riddle's champion. j Cfolden Broom is a royally bred young j Bter and cost Mrs. Jefford's 815,600 (t last year as a yearling. f - He started only once and In trtat race if displayed a marvellous tutti of speed, btlt ran out on the turn and after run ning a sixteenth of a mile more than his opponents finished only a few yards behind the winner. He suffered from quarter cracks this spring, but Michael Daly, his trainer, says he is now In per fect condition and that his injured hoofs will not hurt him again. Bonnie Mary has shown her worth. She had carried weight and won sev eral stakes. She also has been defeated, but each time she was beaten she met with bad racing luck, and William Ho gan, who trains her, declares she will beat any man's horse with an even break in luok. r Harry Payne Whitney's best colts are TJpset and Wlldalr. They have run some bppresslve races, but they have been beaten, and It Is in his fillies that James Howe and Albert Simons place hopes of beating Mr. Riddle's champion. r TJrookholt Lacks Conraare. Brookholt, which was bred by John E. Madden, Is as fast a horse as ever looked through a bridle, but there is a question of whether or not he possesses the cour age of a champion. He is improving every day and may show to better ad vantage in the stakes to come. Bersagllere is a tremendously fast youngster and great things are expsoted of him. In Mr. Cochran's training track at Mount Klsco he is said to have stepped a half-mile In 44 seconds. He started once but showed nothing. After the contest he pulled up lame, but his Injury Is not serious and he is likely to oome balk to the races in a few days and spring a sensation. Hasten On is the pride of Mr. McClel land s stable. He has started twice and In each race showed speed and stamina of the highest class. He won his first race In a canter and in the second finished eeoond after being almost knocked down as soon as the barrier went up. Kim ball Patterson is exceptionally fond of him and believes he will come mighty cjlose to earning the title. The Western stars. Miss Jemima, Dis tlnctlon, High Command and By Golly, are youngsters of exceptionally fine woks ana plenty or. epeea. Miss Jemima Shows Class. Miss Jemima has started twice In the Xast, once at Empire City and once here, and in each ran impressively. At the Yonkers track she didn't beat much nd didn't accomplish her task like a champion should, but that was because she was suffering from a sore mouth, the toss of two teeth and fatigue from standing in a railroad train three hours before the race. Her race here was dla tlnctly high class and there are a host of veteran horaemon who say that only the crest Man o War is her superior. High Command and Distinction have not donned colors in the East, but they coma here with a reputation of being world beaters. Major McDowell Is sweet oa both of them, and he knows a good horse when he sees one. By Golly started once at the track here, but he failed to ahow enough speed to warrant the belief that he is a dangerous rival for th title, E. R. Bradley says ho will Improve over that race and predicts he will beat most pf the Eastern stars before Urn md of the present meeting. Hard Hitting Dominate Have Held a Majority Only Defensive Boxer to Hold Heavyweight Honors Powerful Punching With Fair Defensive Skill Ideal Combination. Br cnoss A recurrence is noted of the historic dispute as to the superiority of the clev er boxer over the unscientific, heavy hitting type or vice versa. There ap pears to be a disposition to exalt de fensive skill at the expenso of com batlveness and aggressiveness. Pugi listic history does not sustain that view of the case, and in no Instance have the defenders of purely scientific boxing received a more Jarring setback than that resultant from the Toledo battle. The supporters of Wlllard Jubilantly pointed out that his huge bulk, com bined with his defensive skill, would form a barrier that Demnsey would be utterly unable to overcome. Accord ing to those who believed Wlllard Would win, Dcmpsey was to be checked at the outset by Wlllard's long left, and when exhausted by his 'Own futile efforts the challenger was to be finished by the cnampions destructive right uppercut On the contrary, Wlllard's defence, which had baffled many other heavy weights, crumbled under the savage on slaught of Dempsey and laid the cham pion open to the pile driving blows which the present title holder is capable of delivering. Bat One Defensive Champion. Looking back at the heavyweight class It Is seen that but one of the eight men who have held the title under Queensberry rules was strictly a defen sive boxer. John L. Sullivan was pure ly a rusher with a limited knqwledge of boxing science. Corbett was the cleverest defensive boxer In the history of the heavy weight class. Fltzslmmons depended on his hitting, and so did Jeffries. Tommy Burns wsa a moderately good boxer and a fairly hard puncher. Jack Johnson was a good boxer and a hard hitter, and Wlllard was neither a clever boxer nor a hard hitter. Dempsey is the hardest hitter in the history of the class, and has a fair knowledge of defensive tactics. Corbett, with superior defensive skill, baffled Peter Jackson, a groat hitler and good boxer, and humbled Sullivan, but was overcome by Jeffries and Flu. Stepping outside the championship di vision we find that Kid McCoy, a very clever boxer, was mastered by Tom ShsHw, strong, combative but un scltneed, Peter Maher, hard hitter and fair boxer, demolished Steve O'Donnell, a defensive boxer with a skill equalling that of corbett Maher also over whelmed Choynskl, clever boxer and ef fective puncher. In fact ring records demonstrate that the heavy nltter has been the dominat ing force In pugilism and that the boxer who depended BOlelxon defensive tactics has not been a glittering success. It Is the man with the punch who has bat tered his way to championships, and If hs combined with his offensive powers a fair knowledge of defensive tactics, as was the case with Fltz, Jeff, Johnson, Tommy Ryan, Joe Gans, Willie Ritchie and George Dixon, former champions, and Mike O'Dowd, Benny Leonard. Jack Pugilists Title Classes of Championships Corbett counter. Brltton and Jack Demnsey. nresent title holders, lie held the key to success. But the fighter who has depended solely on the punch, as well as the boxer who has relied on his defensive skill, has not long survived the strain of battle. Lavlgne, Wolgast Nelson and McGov ern are examples of the lighter who threw defence to the winds and took three blows In order to land one. Corbett, Erne and Welsh are the type who found that something besides parry ing and sidestepping was required in the defence of a title. Young Orlffo, who retained his won derful defensive skill up to a time at which an athlete's physical powers be gin to wane, was an exception to the rule. The first time that an offer was made to take moving pictures of a boxing match the proposition was curtly re jected. The Corbett-Jackson match was the subject of the proposal, a klneto scope firm offering the boxers 140,000 for the privilege of exclusively taking the pictures. However, It as stlpu. lated that the men should battle In a ten foot ring and that the light should be In private. It readily can bo understood that Corbett, who had the quickest feet of any boxer in the game, was duly horri fied at the suggestion of confining his efforts to a ten foot ring, and he promptly refused to do so for any amount of money. Peter Jackson was not averse to accepting the proposal, but Corbett blocked the scheme. The first moving pictures of an athlete In action were those of Sandow, the strong man, going through a weight lifting performance, and the first pic tures of a heavyweight championship battle were those of the Co.-bett-Fltz-Simmons contest at Carson. While these pictures wero imperfect they gave a fairly good Idea of the battle. When the films were shown in this city, Fltz, the new champion, was among those who viewed them at a private showing. As the fight neared the end and showed that Fltzslmmons was win nlng, the freckle fisted gladiator arose from his seat and shouted: "See me fight." Army Mar Furnish Challenger. It Is possible that the army will fur nish the next opponent for Dempsey. There are several candidates for heavy weight honors among the wearers of khaki, but none has yet developed suf ficiently to warrant a match with the champion. The most likely la Bob Mar tin, who yet ts In France, and has shown considerable class. Sergeant Harry Krohn of Camp Sher man has many admirers. He is a big fellow, and Is eald to be rather clever. Jack Burke, 200 poundc, 6 feet, 23 years of age, with about thirty fights In his record, Is among the aspirants. He is at Camp Sheridan, and is credited with a victory over Terry Kellar. Eddie Stock, 235 pounds, 6 feet 2 Inohes tall, 20 years of age, of the avia tion service at Fort Allen, Vermont, has a knockout record oyer huikies in tho service. OUTSIDER SCORES AT NORTH RANDALL Russell Boy Wins Feature on' Closing Day. Cleveland, O., Aug. 9. The biggest upset, of the Grand Circuit meeting came to-day when Russell Boy, an out sider, won the free for all pace of 12,600, the feature of the getaway card at the North Randall tracks to-day. The contest was figured as a strictly two horse race between Miss Harris M. and Single G. But neither was able to get to the wire first Russell Boy led all around in the first two heats, winning with plenty to spare. In the third heat however, after leading most of the way he sucoumKed to Directum J. about fifty feet from the finish and finished half a length back. Neither Russell Boy nor Directum J. was given much consideration by the speculators. They sold at 20 In the auction pool while Miss Harris M. brought 2300 and Single G. $230. Brltton Forbes and Amardale were the only favorites tu win. To-day's receipts, 24,300, were given to charity. The summaries: 2:14 CLASS TROTTINO; rtrilSB 11,100.

Amateur Golf Title Play Sets Anderson Thinking Expert Names Twenty Stars Who Should Finish Among First Thirty-two at Oakmont Only Five Have Qualified in Last Four Championships. By JOHN O. It would seem to be a comparatively easy matter to select fifteen or twenty golfers certain of qualifying in the three rounds of medal play prepara tor to the match play rounds of the amateur championship which starts next Saturday. It Is often agreed that a few upsets will occur but tho average golfet feels that he can name at least halt of the men who will bo on hand Monday morning for tho real fight for high honor. There are. It Is true, enough golfers with class records to make up a couple of lists, but It Is a fact that since 190C, when a dozen or nnre golfers started wagering on their ability to pick twenty of the thirty-two only two solons have been successful while the great ma jority have failed even to pick fifteen. The reason no doubt lies In the fact that after the first nine or ten there la no difference In the play of the next fifty or sixty and different golfers take turns at qualifying. It may surprise most golfers to learn that only five players have qualified In all of the last tour championships, namely, Byers, Evans, Anderson, Fownes and Robert Gardner, This list undoubtedly would be sup plemented by the addition of Messrs. Travers, Oulmet and others If they had played In all theso championships. Even then the smallness of the list must come as a shock to many and a further enlightenment as to the difficulty In picking even sixteen of the fortunate thirty-two. This year, because prac tically every golfer of note will com pote in the championship the difficulty Is all the greater. ricked IS nt Merlon. We tried out this guessing contest at Merlon and managed to get eighteen of the thirty-two, wherefore we aro em boldened to try our luck even before the entry list Is In and name twenty golfers vho ought to be in the match play di visions. mvans, Oulmet Travers, Gardner, Byers, Fownes. Marston, Kirkby, White, Jones, Guilford, Whitney, Ormlston, Herron, Hunter, Sherman, Buxton, tegg, Wood and Wright, comprise our list, based on past performances, local knowledge and present ability. Mono should fall by the wayside In the first day's play when fit come through and every one ought to be registered In the names that go Into the hat Thore has been but two performances to date by youthful golfern not well known nationally, as yet, which would warrant a similar surprise to that handed out by Bobby Jones at the last affair at Merlon. Lockencamp, a young St Louis golfer, Just turned 18, who was In the finals of the Western amateur championship, displayed high class golf from start to finish, while Fred Wright of Boston, who finished but a few strokes behind Francis Oulmet In the play for the Jaques trophy at 72 holes, essentially Is a medal golfer, an exasperatlngly slow player, whose carefulness nets him saved shots and adds as many to his partner's count. George Hoffner Is a third, who may be classed with the beat of the newcomers, but aside from that ANDERSON. there are no so-called "phenoms" likely to win many matches. As happens, each year there will be several 'local players whose familiarity with the course breeds enough contempt to allay all nervous feelings attendant upon the qualifying round, who will get In the match play rounds only to be snuffed out early In the game. Looks for Brilliant I'lay. Golfers like Byers and Fownes, how ever, ought to give an exceptionally good account of their ability over the Oakmont links, having back of them the knowledge that n championship has been In their possession. Each year the score for tho qualifying has been on the downward path and It will be surpris ing if a scoro higher than 165 Is good for a place. In any event I look for the hardest fought and most brilliantly played championship which this coun try has seen. The past week has ehown the difficulty of tournament date selection by a club for we had no fewer than three high class match play events all within fairly easy travelling distance from New York city. Tho same applies to other localities as wel where the golfer must pick nnd chooso between different tournaments. Thore Is no way out so far as can bo reasoned at the present moment. A suggestion was made by a well known Boston writer some time ago that there should be a clearing house for all big events, the same to be handled by the State organizations or the U. S. G. A. through the appointment of a special committee. The thought Is a good one If It can be worked out with success. The past season saw the conflict of the Lynrwwood Hall and the Western ama teur, of the Massachusetts amateur and the Metropolitan open, at which there might have been a delegation from Mas sachusetts. And so It goes all through the various districts. It is the desire on the Dart of mnnv golfers to enter three or four big tour naments each year, and It has happened that two came at the same time. Sug gestions, therefore, seem to be In order, and we would proffer a few. Would It not be an excellent Idea to have all the State championships In the East played the same week, preferably at the end of May or the first week In June? Tho courses are all In playable condition even In .the northern part of Maine. This would at one stroke settle the question of district supremacy and prevent any conflict, since each player would .be engaged In his home section. Soon after the State championships It might be well to hold 'the sectional events, such as tho Metropolitan cham pionship and perhaps a New England championship, a tournament which we would like to eee staged eome time In tho near future, since there have been very few meetings In New England where all the cracks from all the States have par ticipated. The same would hold true of the south central district and other as sociations of cities which happen to bt outside any distinct boundary lines for title play. In two weeks then all the championships would be decided and it would be possible for clubs to stage events with a greater possibility of se curing stars than It Is at the present It was Gravesend Bay racht Club's turn to manage the yacht race on the lower bay yesterday. It waa the sixth championship regatta of the season, and although there have been, better breezes this summer the south wind that blew had enough body to give the Corinthians a satisfactory and fairly interesting brush. As usual, the start and the finish was off the Atlantic Yacht Club at Sea Gate. The course chosen by Chairman J. K. Birch for all classes was made up of a reach, a run and a stilt beat home. Interest centred principally in the second division of the (handicap class. These yachts have been having inter esting struggles all summer. Yesterday they were sent twice around tho course. At tho end of the first round Fantasle, an Isllp one design yacht, now the prop erty of I. L. Beebe, Jr., Atlantic Yacht Club, was leading the fleet She was clocked at 4 :10 :12. Then came H. Pirn's Careless at 4:17:22, followed by the old Manhasset Bay one design yacht Scylla, owned and sailed by Phil Crovat, At lantic Yacht Club, at 4:18:07, and the old Llpton Cup racer. Loafer, at 4 :22:01, Durln-r the second round Fantasle continued to run away from the other yachts. She covered tho 7.S mile course In 1 :40 :22 actual time. On the second thrash to windward, which waa from the Fort Hamilton to the Bensonhurst mark, Scylla almost overhauled Care less. The latter, however, finished sec ond on tactual, and as she had 1 per cent handicap on both Fantasle and Scylla, the craft easily held second po sition on the corrected time sheet Alcyon noma First. That Handtcapper Rummell had done his work well Is shown by tho close finish in the corrected time of the third division of the handicap class. On act it j 1 time Alcyon led home the fleet, finishing 12 minutes 45 seconds ahead of Bug II., the second yacht to cross the line. On actual time Alcyon won and Bug II. took second prize. How ever, there was only forty-five seconds between the yachts when the corrected time was figured. E. T. Supper's Mouse Bcored another victory among the lower bay knock abouts, rrho. craft took 2:04:22 to sail tho course. The time w&s excellent as It took It. IL Flnla.'8 Meteor, winner of the star yachts, 2:11:36 to cover the same course. The star yachts were late In starting, which may account for the difference In times.

Beany Leonard, lightweight champion, who has been marking time for some months past will get Into action to morrow night when he faces Irish Patsy Cllne of Harlem in a six-round combat in the National League baseball park in Philadelphia. If Leonard and Cllne provide as exciting a bout as they did last winter at the Olympla A. A. In Quakertown the spectators will bo amply repaid for the journey to the arena. The fifth round of that contest was productive of wild excitement due to the fact that Cllne landed a heavy smash on Leonard's Jaw, with the result that the champion was very much at sea until the bell called him to his corner. It doubtless was one of the aarroweat escapes Leonard has had from a knockout since he came Into possession of the lightweight title. He was compelled to employ all hla ring craft and cleverness to prevent Cllne finishing the Job then and there, and It required skillful work on the part of his handlers to get the title holder lato condition for the bell for the sixth and last round. They succeedod, how ever, and the champion was himself In the final round. He. held his op ponent safe. As Leonard had won the first four rounds' In handy stylo he was entitled to the decision oa points. No Title nt Stake. The champion, however, will not soon forgtft the thump he received from Patsy Cllne In the fifth rounds While no title Is at stake in the contest to morrow night, Cllne being a full fledged welter and Leonard weighing more than 140 pounds, yet It should bo a decidedly Interesting encounter, with possibilities of exciting incidents at any stage of the batt'e. In addition to the Leonard-Cllne bout there will bo four other contests between noted performers In the squared circle. Johnny Dundeo, who invariably Inter ests tho spectators with his speed and dash, will have as an opponent Joe Well ing of Chicago, a fine boxer with heavy hitting ability. The bout In general Interest should run a close second to tha chief event Charley White 'of Chicago, for many years regarded ns tha leading contender for the lightweight title, but who lias been out of the ring for a considerable length of time, will reappear In a bout with Harry Pierce, a veteran New York lightweight White evidently desires to ascertain what his prosent condition Is previous to facing some of the more formidable men In the class. Pierce will give White a warm argument, and while the Chicago man of the left hook should win he will know he has not been play ing ping pong. Joe Benjamin, an expert four round boxer of the Paclflo coast, regarded as the best lightweight In that section, will have his first test In the East when he boxes with Al Thompson, a rugged light weight who recently returned from ser iVlco with the marines In France. Eddie (Morgan, an English feather weight, and Johnny Mealey, a Philadel phia boxer, will complete the programme, which as a whole is brilliantly prom ising. Brltton's Confidence. While Jack Brltton easily defeated Johnny Griffiths at Denver last Thurs day night, the champion did not inflict much damage on the Ohloan, because of a disinclination to subject his hands to strain previous to his battle with O'Dowd at Newark August 22. Manager Morgan declares that Brltton feels confident of stopping O'Dowd, and will usa all hU punching powers on tho middleweight champion. He admits that O'Dowd Id rugged and that heavy hitting will be required to stop him, but he expects to drop the middleweight for the count bo- fore the eighth round ends. Morgan In Justifying the demand TJiaj O'Dowd weigh twice on the day of tha bout, once at 8 P. M. and again at rtiut time, eays Brltton wants the middle weight title, and Insists on tho middle weight champion being at weight ICS pounds. Brltton of course la Justified In asxing that O'Dowd restrict himself to US pounds, because the welter will even then concede much weight to a danger ous man. But tha claim that IBS pounds Is the middleweight limit will not bear Investigation. Morgan could have In sisted on the IB 4 pounds that Jack Demp sey Imposed when he lost title to Fltz slmmons or he could have named the 162 pounds at which Fltz beat Jtm HaU. Tommy Ryan defended title at 164 to 160, and Klaus, Chip and McCoy stipu lated 160. Carpentler, middleweight champion of Europe, made It 160. So also did Len Darcy. There la considerable mystery aa to where the 158 pound scheme sprung from. However, If O Dowd Is willing to risk his middleweight title at 15S that la his funeral. George Dixon lost his featherweight tills to McGovern at 118 ringside. So there is precedent for O'Dowd. AQUILLA HOME FIRST. Captures Star Clnaa ITonors at Mnnhnaart Bny Y. C. Ilncei.
