Umw York Sun Spmotml Bm*vlom New York, Sept. 23.—The Shamrock and Columbia will receive their final groom ings to-day. The Shamrock in the Erie basin dry dock is now almost ready to meet her rival in the races for the Amer ica's cup. The under bodies will receive a little burnishing and the topsides are to have a coat of green paint, then the chal lenger will be ready. The water will be let into the dry dock early to-morrow morning and when she is afloat John Hy slop, measurer, of the New York Yacht club, will run his tape over the yacht's hull and spars and will tell just how much she measures. This will be an interesting operation and will be watched carefully by all yachtsmen, as many are hoping that the challenger will have to allow consid erable time to the defending yacht, and this allowance may have much to do with the result of the races. It has been esti mated that the allowance will be about one minute and forty seconds. As soon as the yacht has been measured she will be towed down to the Horseshoe and will probably have a short spin In the after noon. The Columbia was towed from Glen Cove last night and early to-morrow morning ■he is to be hauled out for a final cleaning on the ways at the Morse Iron works at the foot of Fifty-fifth street, South Brooklyn. Some slight changes have been made in her sails and rigging since her last races with the Constitution, and it is hoped that she has been improved some what. The yacht has been in first-class shape all the summer and the reason she did not have more extra sails was because E. D. Morgan, who has sailed her, ex pected that the Constitution would prove to be the faster boat and would be selected to defend the cup. TO U. S. TRACKS W. C. Whitney Will Withdraw From Forelg-u Racing;. New York, Sept. 23. — W. C. Whitney confirms the report that he will -withdraw his big racing stable from England and in future confine his racing operations to the American tracks alone. On this subject he is quoted as saying: Yankee, Blue Girl, Nasturtium and perhaps Goldsmith and King Hanover or whatever horses might have been selected to make up the rest o£ the string I tended to send to England this fall, will remain at home. My racing stable In England will be broken up. I shall order the good ones in the lot sent home and those I do not care to keep will be sold on the other side. I have not decided which ones I shall keep and which shall be bold. I have sent no orders and, indeed, this whole change of plan has come within the laat few days. Record Will Stand. Doubt exists in the minds of certain sus picious twin ctly cyclists as to the authen ticity of the tandem twenty-mlle-road reo ord over the Hanson course, said to have been established by two St. Paul riders in the remarkable time of 1 hour, 28 minutes, 27 2-5 seconds. The start was made from Lake Calhoun, and after an hour and a half had passed, people driving in from 'Tonka re ported having met two sick-looking men on a tandem, who looked as though they needed belp.

THE WORLD OF SPORT EQUAL TO THE BEST Minneapolis Golf Grounds Not Ex celled by Eastern Courses. H. J. BURTON MAKES COMPARISON He Says Travis and Dougla* Hold Opposite Opinions on the Haskell Ball. K. J. Burton of the Plymouth Clothing House, who returned Saturday from the east, says that Minneapolis golf courses are not excelled anywhere. For accuracy and smoothness, no putting greens that he inspected around Boston or New York can compare with those at the Minikahda club. Mr. Burton saw the first part of the great match between Douglas and Travis at Atlantic City, N. J. Among the pecu liarities of the famous players is the aversion with which one regards the much-abused Haskell ball, and the high favor which it finds with the other. Travis thinks there is no ball like the Haskell make, and will play with no other when he can help it. Douglas declares that he would rather be beaten than vio late the ethics of the game by using the Haskell sphere. The Haskell ball was a favorite with the western players, Holabird and Egan using it to advantage. Saidl Mr. Burton: Travis and Douglas played a magnificent, long gamo through the fair greens. Their drives were straight, true ard very powerful, never being less than 200 yards and frequent ly 250 yards. They occasionally got Into the bunkers at 250 yards. Douglas was not so good as Travis on the very short approaches. On the long drives all of tha players were vary accurate in ap proaching. Travis excelled greatly in put ting. There were no long puts, and it invari ably took two to go out. As a rule they halved their holes in one or two less than bogey. The turf on the Atlantio City links was soft and silky, and the fair greens were much softer to the tread than our greens, which are more stubby. The greens were In miserable shape at the Brooklyn Country Club. They had just been holding a polo tournament on the greens, and you can ima gine the shape the horses' hoofs had left the links in. T. AND C. PLAYERS WON The Minikahda Team Met Crushing Defeat Saturday. The failure of Corse and Jeffray to "represent" was in large measure re sponsible for the crushing defeat handed to the Minikahda golfers by the sturdy players of the Town and Country club at the river links Saturday. Minikahda lost by 55 down. Corse and Jaffray are "scratch" men, but they couldn't deliver the goods. George Belden was there with his old reliable play, and did much to prevent the defeat from being even more disastrous than it was. Parlin, B. Schurmeier, Miller, Brooks, Bend, Langford, Durant and Ricketts were in the thick of the fight for the Town and Country club. At the turn the Town and Country club was 29 up, and at the final, 55 up.

IT WAS A PROCESSION THE BOAT RACE AT WINNIPEG Craud Looked Upon It as a Fake- Gaudaur Talks of Hi» Defeat. Special to The Journal. Winnipeg, Sept. 23. —The professional boait race which took place here on Satur day between Towns, the new world's champion, his trainer Sulivan, Pearce of New Zealand and Durnan of Toronto, at tracted a very large crowd of spectators. The weather was mise-rably cold and the water choppy,owing to a strong north wind which had been, blowing all day. Durnian had wished to row Towns on even terms, but 'the champion demanded that he should give all his competitors three seconds start. The race was one and one-half miles with turn, for purse of $500 present ed by the Winnipeg Rowing Ohib. At the start Peance and Durnaox got away best, and Sulivan was last of the three. Towns soon followed, and* the race to the turn was fairly even. In the return Sulivan and Pearce drew away from the others, and the race, was really between them, Towns and Durnani following leisurely. The whole thing appeared to be an ar ranged fake. The closest observer never saw either Towns or Durnan, make an ef fort, and the four men passed the win ning post, Swllvan first, Pearce second, Towns third and Durnan, fourth, almost in the shape of a procession. Sulivan laughed very heartily as he pulled to the shore. The time was 9:41. Those who witnessed the race returned home heartily disap pointed, and Towns is not popular man he was prior to the event. Jake Gaudau>r was one of the specta tors. Speaking in Tegard to his recent de feat for the world's^ championship by Towos at Rat Portage, Gaudauer said: I was in good condition on Wednesday, the day on which the race should have been rowed, but before Saturday, the day on which it was rowed, I became stiff as a man of my age, trained down, is bound to do. My mus cles lack that responsive elasticity which they had before I was 33 years of age, and which enables a man to recover as if by nragic from fatigue of nerve or muscle. A young man may be worked to the last point of endurance of nerve and heart and sinew, and the next day he may feel all right and be ready to re peat the operation. At my age a man may train down to good condition for an event at a certain specified time, but he cannot hold that condition. That is what happened to me during those few days of waiting. I do not wish to rob Towns of any glory, or to de preciate his merit, but I do say that if he did anywhere near his best against me he won't retain the championship very long. There are others who will make him lower that record and quicken his pace. Special California Excursions.

SERIOUS WORK AHEAD-THOUGH Only Two Weeks Remain Before tUe "P. and S." Game— A Hard One. Fumbles and flukes in executing the commands of their captain resulted in a comparatively poor showing on^he part of the 'varsity football men in their half against the Minneapolis high school boys at Northrop Field Saturday. The showing against the St. Paul high boys was better, but frequent off-side plays and poor inter ference left much to be desired even there. Still it must be remembered that the halves were only twenty minutes in length and against foes assumed (which is always a mistake) to be in ferior. The shortness of the halves scarcely gave the university men time to realize that they were not making the showing expected of them before time was called and the fact that their opponents were not regarded by them as in their class doubtless led to a certain degree of listlessness and carelessness. The whole story of the first half is told in the two words "fumbles" and "flukes." Only once in the entire half did the var sity men fail to make five yards in three downs and more often they made their distance in one or two rushes. The trouble was that after rushing the ball al most to the high school's goal a fumble would occur and the ball would go to the high school. The frequency of these fumbles or of "breaks" that gave the high school men the ball without the necessity of falling on it, enabled the youngsters to keep the varsities away from their goal line. But they did not succeed in this by rushing the varsity line or by brilliant end runs. In nearly every case in the third down the high school had to punt. Good work in geting down the field under these punts gave them their ground. The flukes were due largely to lack of familiarity with the signals. -This nat urally led to very ragged play, such as passing the ball forward and other like offenses which forfeited the ball to the high school men. Still, the varsities should have scored, had the interference been up to standard, for a number of times their men were well through the line, only to be downed by some light man who should have been blocked by the inter ference. Spirit of the High School. A part of the poor playing of the varsity men against the Minneapolis high school boys was doubtless due to tie spirited way in which the latter attacked their big rivals or met attacks from them. It was a good experience for the university men, therefore, to meet them. For agil ity .some of the high school boys were stars. McCarthy at center had a great way of getting through the line. Once he captured the ball before Dobie had time to pass it. However, he seems to have been too impatient to get started for his team was penalized for off-side play. Marshall, Morse and Bufflngton also did commendable work. The high schooi promises to have a team that will uphold the central standard in a thoroughly cred itable way. Score oto 0. The Second Half. (The second half against the St. Paul high school showed improvement in the varsity form and was played with more spirit, the varsity getting three touch downs and one goal. The St. Paul boys played a plucky game but were lighter than the Central high boys. Frequent penalties cost the university much ground. No Reason to "Quit." Take it all in all, there is nothing to be discouraged over in the play of Saturday. The varsity men will earn the lessons the game should teach. The mere fact that the showing was not up to expecta tions m.cans nothing. A dozen reasons might be given to account for the ragged form shown. The only thing is will the men elimniate the possibility of such form by the time a really formidable foe is to be met? Bis Game Tiro Week* Away. The time is short, for Saturday, Oct. 5, the gophers will have to meet the College of Physicians and Surgeons of. Chicago, and the game will be a hard one. The "P. and S." team is made up of veterans from Michigan, Northwestern, Chicago and the east. They know the game and have played together through an entire season, as only one of last year's team is not back this year. They are hard at work at prac tice and promise to give the Minnesota boys all they care for in the way of a game. Oct. 6, last year, they played the Wisconsin varsities a game in which the latter won by the narrow margin of sto 0. Should the gophers "fall down" in this game, the gloom that would settle over Northrop Field would be so dense that even a complete series of victories for the rest of the season would hardly remove it. There Is woTk ahead for the gophers. The Teams. The make-up of the teams' Saturday: FIRST HALF. Minnesota. Minneapolis Central.

" ;■ AS a result of the game with the high school on Saturday a much better idea of the material at hand for the varsity team can be formed than was possible be fore, although the game itself furnishes absolutely no basis to judge of what may be . expected from the Minnesota team later In the season. While It is admit ted that the varsity will make great pro gress, the fact nevertheless remains \ that the Minnesota team did not do as well as it should have done, or as well as it was expected to do. Remembering the early game of last year the varsity men had made up. their minds to » run up at least two or three touchdowns on Central: This, however, they were unable to do. It Is early in the season to make much THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. criticism, as a week or two of play will remedy such faults as fumbling, dropping the ball, having one man in the interfer ance go one way while the play goes an other, etc., but there are a few vitally important matters which every man on the team can well take to himself and apply to his play. The worst fault at present is the slowness and uncertainty with which most of the plays and actions of individuals are executed. To make a great team every man must be mentally alert, active, back to his place instantly and always ready, and when a play is executed, either on the offense or de fense, go into it every time as if the whole game depended upon his action in that one play, in this way, and In this way only, can a great team be built up. The slowness and uncertainty at pres-r ent shown is doubtless partly the result of lack of practice which a week's work should greatly improve. A Hopeful Sinn, ©ne of the most encouraging features on viewing the work of the present var sity squad is their evident willingness to work and anxiety to do their best. The old men are not hanging back, but are aiding the new men in the work as far as possible, and have evidently the deter mination of doing their best to aid in bulding up another great team for Min nesota. Faithful, conscientious, hard work should be the watchword of every candi date, and there will be reason to believe that another team, equal to that of a year ago, may be built up. The people of Minneapolis have coefl dence in the team and are ready with their loyal support. The game of Saturday showed one thing, and it is well to know and recognize it at once. That is that the team is still in a crude state, at the bottom of the hill, and that it must mount rapidly by very hard work, if it would hope for a stand at the top. Rogers Doing "Well. Of the new men Rogers is showing up particularly well at left end, and if he keeps on as he has begun will in all prob ability secure that place on the team. For the vacant tackle position none of the candidates are of the same caliber with Tweet. Waist, McDonald and Thorpe are all playing about equally well, though Waist seems to throw a little more dash and abandon in his work, and evidently has the qualities which go to make up a first-class player. Thorpe does not allow himself enough freedom of action or begin to cover the ground which he should on defensive play. McDonald is showing steady improvement and becoming a valu able man on the offense. Freeman is a new man who is showing up well on the second team and may yet be heard from. The Guard Position. For the guard position which Flynn is now expected to fill the new material is not what it should be. Van Camp is a large, powerful fellow, but he never gets into 'the game, while his opponent plays under him, over him and all around him. Nelson is as yet too abominably slow to be of much value. When Nelson learns to charge his man back the instant the ball is snapped and then go into the interference or after the man with the ball, and not leave his place entirely expoaed for the opposing team to sweep through, he will be a valuable man, as he has gireat, strength. Ricker, the high school guard of last year, is doing fiairly well, but has much to learn before he caiv be considered, of var sity caliber. Back Field Material. In the backneld.'Bidlake, Allen, Irsfleld, j Tifft, Evans arid Boeckman are all work- \ drag hard. Allen and Bidlake have made a very favorable impression, while Evans 1 work, when an opportunity has been given him, has* been of excellent quality. . Boeckmann is a man of good natural lability, but lacks experience and knowl edge of the game. He is being pushed : hard to bring him into line with the j other candidates, and if he realizes and i appreciates the opportunities that are be ing placed before him and is willing to work faithfully and, put the time and study on his' play which the position requires, may make one of the fastest players on the team. At present he is so slow in lin ing up, uncertain where to go and unde cided in action that he is of little value to the team. If he will concentrate his mind and Interest to learn the game, great i things may be expected of him. Davies is a new man who is also showing up well. '.' "Sig" Harris of last year's Minneapolis (Central is doing good work at quarter on j the second team, and there are others at ! present upon the second team whose work ; is deserving of comment, though more space cannot be given art the present time.

Larsonfand Skow were botb.;on the \ field, but not in uniform. Larson assisted King by coaching the backs, while Skow con tented himself with following the play closely. Tenner, the Green Bay heavy weight, who has been in center, was shifted over to guard, while Heisinger oc cupied the center of the line. This is taken as an indication that Skow will "go back to his old place, center, instead of being changed to guard, and a new man, Tenner if he can qualify, put in at guard. L/erum. was put at center in the second squad, but this was mainly to give the several candidates for quarterback a chance to show what they could do. Lille quist was put in at quarter for the first time, but will have to develop a little more activity if he gets on the eligible list. Abercrombie, one of the best of the sub stitute halfbacks last year, was tried at full back, alternating with Long. Both are fair punters, Abercrombie perhaps a little the better of the two. There is still a chance that Driver may return to occupy the back field, but it is not likely. "Slam" Anderson took a turn at coaching the ends yesterday afternoon, and they were both out, and both look equal to their punts down the field. Abbott and Juneau wer both out, and both look equal to their good work of last year. GLOOM LIFTS lowa Rooters Take a More Hopeful View. lowa City, lowa, Sept. 23.—The gloom that seemed settled over the football en thusiasts of lowa has lifted. Saturday everywhere in the athletic circle the pre diction was that lowa will have a win ning team this year. Some time ago it was said that Watters and Burrier, two of the best men on last year's team, would not return. This was proved wrong, as they both returned Sat urday and are now in training. The old men up to date who are on this year's team are Williams, captain and quarter back; Briggs, sub center; Col thard, sub tackle; Macey, sub full back; Hollenbeck, the second team's big tackle; Waiters, right end; Burrier, left tackle, and Seiberts, Herbert, Maresh and Buck ley, last years subs. With this number of old men on hand and thirty new men, things look more favorable. It is ac knowledged by Dr. Knipe and McCutcheon that the present material is as good as that from which last year's team was picked, and there is no doubt that lowa will hold her own with the contesting seven schools. NEBRASKAXS' FAST GAME They Run Score Against Lincoln High School to 28 to O. Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 23.—Nebraska uni versity began the .football season Saturday with a victory. The corn huskers were opposed to Lincoln high school and in two halves of fifteen minutes each, the varsity rolled up five touchdowns. The score was 28 to 0. The Nebraska backs went around ttto ends from runs varying from ten to thirty yards at ease. The varsity defense held firm and only once did the high school players make their distance on downs. Won by Donglas Team. The Douglas football team defeated the St. Anthony team Saturday, by a score of 12 to 0 in one of the closest contests between amateur elevens ever witnessed in this city. The Douglas team made steady gains, pound ing through the line, flying round the ends or playing tackle through tackle, guard through guard. Trabert, left end for the Douglas team, distinguished himself by breaking through the St. Anthony line and blocking a kick. The ball struck Trabert, glancing to one side, when Reed, Douglas' full back, caught it and scored a touchdown while the St Anthony players were still endeavoring to locate the pigskin.

Novel Use of an Automobile. P In Startiord, Conn., a gentleman recent ly rode to church in his electric automo bile, then attached the storage battery of his carriage to the switchboard of the church and thus .lighted the building. It was a dark day and as the town was only supplied with electricity at night, this was the only way of lighting the building. American inventive ; genius is usually | ready for any emergency. It rose to the height of its power when it produced ! "Golden Grain Belt" beer, the purest and most healthful tonic. A nice thing about this medicine is : that it :is exceedingly pleasant to the taste. :r Brewed from the purest barley malt and hops, It Is abso lutely pure. My friend, look here; you know how weak and nervous your wife is, and you know that Carter's Iron Pills will relieve her; now why not be fair about it and buy her a box? Congdon'i I'ltch Pljpea At Metropolitan Muaio Co., 41-43 6th st S. MEET AT MADISON Rangy Minneapolis Hounds Entered in the Coursing Meet. SOME FAST EVENTS EXPECTED Trophies Are Worth Going After as Attested by the List of Entries. John W. C. Charlton of 1029 Logan ave nue N left last evening with a string of hounds for Madison, S. D., where his fleet ones will participate in the first annual meeting of the Madison Coursing club, Sept. 25, 26, 27. The stakes are the Aber deen cup and the Derby stake, the money to be divided to Buit nominators. The Aberdeen cup is valued at $600. The con test will be run on the open prairie Al though this is the initial meet of the recently organized Madison club, it prom ises to be one of the most enthusiastic and interesting gatherings of coursers ever held in the west. There are 102 members of the Madison club. All entries will have to look well to their laurels on account of Mr. Charlton'a veteran courser, Temple. This famous old dog has an unblemished record, and is considered one of the best hounds in the running to-day. He numbers among his famous ancestors Mellormoor, Thetis, Thoughtless Beauty, winner of the Water loo cup, and Peregrine Pickle, the best dog in England. Mr. Charlton's young dogs are: Confi dence, Cloudburst and Charming Thought, each of whom is expected to give a good account of himself when slipped. Sam Handy of Minneapolis will enter fourteen young hounds in the Madison meet. Mr. Handy is the slip steward of the Madison club. The meet will be governed by the rules of the American coursing board. The points of the course: Speed, which shall be estimated as one, two or three points, according to the degree of superiority shown: the go-by, two points, or, if gained en the outer circle, three points the turn, one point; the kill, two points, or, In a descending scale, in proportion to the degree of merit displayed in the kill, which may be of no value; the trip one point. The Charlton dogs will be kept groomed after the Madison contest for the big an nual St. Louis meet, which is to be held under the auspices of the American Cours ing board for the first time Oct. 4 and 5. Six hundred dollars will be added to the Waterloo cup and ?200 to the Ameri can Derby. The great futurity stake for puppies will be run at Friend, Neb., Oct. 24 and tS There will be 148 entries. The stake will be worth not less than $1,000. The Charlton dogs had a little coursing meet of their own last week in the open fields west of Logan avenue In Oak Park Five husky jack rabbits, shipped from Kansas, especially for the occasion, fur nished the amusement. Only one bunny escaped, but they all gave the hounds a good hard run before surrendering One old jack that had evidently given Kansas dogs a merry chase over the southwest ern prairies, proved to be an artful dodger of high degree. The way he doubled on his trail thoroughly baffled the hounds. He was a wise old boy, and instead of sticking in the fields, where the hounds would eventually have tired him out, he streaked out Logan avenue like a link of chain lightning and escaped. ROQUE IN HIGH FAVOR NEW COURTS BEIXO PREPARED Enthusiastic Clubs to Play the Game Formed at Hutchinsou and Glenooe. The fascinating game of rogue Is forg ing steadily to the front in Minnesota, twelve courts being in course of construc tion at the present time in different local ities. Three new courts are being put In shape at Stanley hall. A. M. Cheney of 3021 Grand avenue has Just completed a fine court, and Alderman Fred Powers of the eighth ward is getting the fever. He has decided to join the Minneapolis Rogue club, and In due course of timfe will have a court of his own. At Hutchinson. Minn., a club of twelve members has just been organized and two new courts will be constructed at once. The twelve members of that dub are clever enough to compete "With the very best players In the state. The of ficers of the Hutchinson club are: Pres ident, Professor Merrill; vice president, E. J. Sterns; secretary, O. H. Slevright; treasurer, William Davidson. A club of twelve members has also re cently been organized at Glencoe, Minn. Its membership includes several women. The officers are: President, Dr. B. F. Allen; secretary and treasurer, Mrs. I* W. Lester. Versatile sportsmen -who are proficient at many games say that rogue is the most scientific game played out of doors with balls. A heavy mallet, with one hand, has to execute the most difficult and del icate shots in order to make a success of the game. It Is a very Interesting game from the spectator's view point. The game is rapidly getting a foothold la the west, having already been taken up se riously by the east. At several well known eastern resorts It had a great run this season, interest in it rivaling golf at some places. Skilful players never tire of the Wonderful combinations possible on a per fectly prepared court. Red, white, blue and black balls are used, the colors being an assistance in the execution of almost as fine shots as are possible on the bil liard table. Say I Gringo Porto Mean Cigar sc.
