d the evolution of the stroke, with

tiguous phases. Tho crawl has been
heralded tho great discovery of modern
Javs, but if wo compare it to tho

Three Varieties.
TVo have now three distinct varieties
sf crawl, each having decided charac
teristics of its own, and two of them
:ertainly did not find their origin in
Australia, though , they may now be
ased there. Tho earliest crawl, tho one
learned from the natives of the South
5ea islands and made famous by Cavill,
I Is not to be found in this country. At
j tho time tho crawl was introduced here
p iwimniers had only very poor descrip
tions to guide ' them, and while they
I thought they were imitating Auslra-
Hans, they were really bringing out a
new leg movement, which through a re
markable pieco of good fortune proved
piost efficient and as many experts
believe superior to Cavill 's.
This went at first as the Australian
srawl. but when it was discovered later
that it differed greatly from tho orig
inal, the qualifying name of "Ameri
can" was substituted for "Austra
lian." not because of any intention to
elaiin tho honor of discovery, but to
' distinguish between tho two styles.
Now that outsiders arc trying to prove
the name unwarranted, however, wo
may as -well show that wo havo every
' right to use it.
In the crawl to which we have given
our name the leg drive is a small and
continuous undcr-water thrash of the
lower leg, absolutely independent of tho
&nu action, while" in the . Australian
Btroke tho legs keep time with the
tarns, the lower right leg boing lifted
v clear out of water to a kneeling posi-
x lion and then slapped 'down hard just
iis the left arm catches, the left leg
being used in the same way as the right
arm catches. Without going into tho
merits of each variety it will be seen
that tho difTerenco between the two is
one of time as well as of action and
surely uuito as great as between the
scissor kick and the Australian crawl
IS Daniels's Stroke. '
Tho third variuty is the invention
j pf our all-round champion, Charles M.
Daniels, and to him goes the entire
credit of having evolved it, though
hundreds have since copied it and now
jiwlm it. In forming it Daniels com
bined tho two crawls already in uso.
lip used tho Australian kick to begin
with, but finding that tho slow, lone
arm movement, which caino natural to
him, allowed tho bod3' to lose head
way and sink between strokes, he add
ed a Slight thrash after each leg drive,
thus using the Amorlcnn kick and mak-
Lng his advanco unchecked.
" There is some question as to whether
Daniels's method is an improvement on
tho American strolco. Not a few ex
ports claim that tho lifting of the lower
log out of water as done in both tho
Australian and Daniels strokes cannot
h hut bring tho body down hy tho feet,
f destroying tho balance and so retarding
' ipeed. Tho theory is sound, and prob
ably time will prove it so, but it is
hard to arguu against success, and so
Iqng.as Daniels is leading the field it
will bo difficult to convince- racing men
who are seldom theorists, that tho win
ning strolco of tho present is not the
best. Still, thoso who remember tho
difficulty experienced in petting the
lanky N"cw Yorkor to abandon the
hrudgeon with which he was breaking
I records, in favor of the crawl, and later
I saw hjm perform wonders, may find in
j It a moral lesson,
i tt - is not unlikely that "Healy gained
i hia impression of the American crawl
! from seeing Daniels swim in England,
and that he is, therefore, excusable for
hi criticism siuco Daniels really does
nse a slightl.y modified Australian
srawl, and not .ho American.

Tilbury Will Represent Eng

Tribune Special Sporting Service.
LONDON, .Tunc G. Great intorest
has been aroused by the accounts of
the pistol duels and revolver and rifle
shooting contests which aro to be held
in connection with the Olympic games
and tho Shepherd's Bush exhibition,
and on all sides it is boiug asked: Who
is, the English champion who will como
forward to oppose Mr. Walter Wiuiiun,
who has declared his intention of shoot
ing on behalf of the United States'.'
A crack revolver shot, in tho person
of Mr. S. Tilbury, of Hammersmith, is
willing to take lip tho challcugo on be
half of England, and to fight :i pistol
duel with Mr. Winqns. Mr. Tilbury
has sent a letter to tho Express, in
which ho says:
"Mr. Winans has slated his intention
of representing tho United States. I
have not vet seen tho names of tho ecu-
tlcmeu who are to repreesnt England.
"1 havo had tho pleasure of beating
Mr. Winans for the championship ol
the North London Rifle club, and would
very much liko to meet him again in
anv trial of skill with tho revolver.
"There aro many well-known Iiisloy
revolver shots, including myself, who
would readily dispute Mr. Winans 'a
claims to be tho revolver champion of
tho world."
Recognizing tho widespread interest
which is being displayed in tho forth
coming international pistol duels, the
Express at once laid Mr. Tilbury's let
ter before Mr. Winans, who lias re
plied as follows:
"I am glad to seo interest is re
viving in revolver shooting, and that
Mr. S. Tilbury desires to try to bent
my world's records.
""In tho samo way Mr. Tilbury will
havo to beat tho following records,
made by myself, before ho can assume
tho title ot revolver champion:
"I. A possiblo at a traversing two
inch bullseyo at twenty 3-ards.
"2. A possiblo at an advancing
four-inch bullsei'o from fifty yards.
"3. A forty-one out of n possible
forty-two in twolvo seconds at twenty
yards, at a two-inch bullsoyo.
"4. An eight3--lwo out of eighty
four at a four-inch bullsoyo, at fifty
"5. Forty-two, forty ouc. thirty
nino, in four successive shots at twenty
rounds, at a two-inch bullsoyo.
"G. A two'-inch possiblo at lwcnt3"
five metres, to be shot in fifteen sec
onds, using tho double-action army re-,
"I niado tho latter score in tho open
air, with an American army revolver,
at Gastinno Rouetto's, in Paris, on tho
Gth of last month, and if Mr. Tilbury
can beat this ono score I am willing, to
consider him champion.
"If, however. Mr. Tilbury would like
to havo a friendly shoot against me,
will he kindly write to M. Gasliimu
Rennctlc, 39,' Avenue d'Autin, Paris,
aud subscribe his name as a competitor
in tho competitions which will lake
place at the Anglo-French exhibition
on July 13, l'l, 15 aud 1(5, next. Sonic
of tho" best pistol shots in Franco will
tako part in tho contests. All tho
shooting, however, will bq on practical
lines ranid firing, no aiming at a black
bullseyo on a white target, which tho
French consider is not tho way pistol
championships should be decided, see
ing that tho revolver is a weapon for
rapid use. not deliberate aiming.
"The title of Olympic champion will
also be shot for with pistols, in connec
tion with the Olympic games this sum
mer. Mr. Tilbury and 1 can shoot
against each other thoro; but I think
we shall both bo beaten in the delibor
ato shooting at fiftj' 3rards by at least
ono Frenchman, who makes a specialty
of that sort of shooting."
When Mr. Tilbury was shown this
letter ho at once asserted his willing
ness to have a friendly shoot with Mr.
Winans under any conditions.
"I should not havo thought of en
tering into this competition," said Mr.
Tilbury, "had Mr, Winans not ex
pressed his intention of shooting for
tho United Stales. That made mo feel
that somebody should stand up for Eng
land, and, remembering that 1 had beat
en Mr. Winans before, I naturally
thought I ought to stand some chance."

NEW YORK, June 0. Britons aro tak
ing Jack Johnson's claim to tho heavy
weight title seriously. On this slilo of
llio Atlantic, however, a different view of
things 1b taken. We must still look upon
13urna as the charrmlont even though ho
has tints far refused to mecet the negro,
Johnson hurled challenge after challenpo
at Jeffries, but the latter always refunod
to recognize tho negro. But we novcr
permitted Johnson to claim a champion
ship because Jeffries drew the color line.
Burns bus not refused to fight John
sou. It Is admitted that be Is asking too
much when he demands ?30,000, win, loao
or draw. Still, Johnson, If bo Is sincere,
will bo willing to accept a paltry S6000
for an opportunity to get at Burns. Thoro
Is mora truth than Jlctlon In the report
that Burns fears Johnson. If bo con
sidered the negro expert an easy mark be
would not demand a fortune to enter tho
ring. Burns probably llguros that his
title will bo In danger If be takes on
Johnson, and If beaten he would no long
er bo a money-making proposition, and
If bn Is to bo beaten ho wants to mako
a big clean-up and be comfortable for
the rest of bis days.

NEW YORK. Juno 0. Tho first sur
prise of the Olympic tryouts camo last
Tuesday night, when Loo J. Talbolt of
Cornell, the giant weight thrower of tho
Irlsb-Amorlcan Athletic club, captured
the heavyweight wrestling bout. Until
a few days before the bout few followers
of athletics were of the belief that tho
field athlete even contemplated making
a bid for wrestling honors.
With scarcely any training In wrest
ling, Talbott hurried from his studios at
Ithaca and arrived In this city to try
bis band at tho grappling game. Ho was
without the necessary wrestling togs and
was compelled to compete In a pair of
running togs, which bo borrowed from
one of bis club mates. Although be did
not succeed In throwing bis opponents,
bo so far outclassed them that at tho
expiration of tho time limit ho was
awarded the docislon.
Those who saw him compete declared
that with a month's training Talbott
would develop Into ono of tho greatest

sures him of making the Olympic team. !
wrestling is not the only event In which
he Is likely to win points. In hammer
throwing, hurling the discus, and putting
the shot, there are few men In the coun
try bis superior. With the. discus he
ranks second In the East to Martin Sheri
dan, and throwing tho hammer he Is

Whllo talking about the weight throw
ers recently John Flanagan snld: "I
really think Talbott Is tbo coming chain-,

tance of tho best men In the country
today. He is young and powerfully built
and Is Improving every day. Whllo
McCirath and myself might bent him this
year, and perhaps next, there Is no
doubt in my mind that within two years
the boy will defeat us."
While Flanagan Is In excellent condi
tion and will in all probability make tbo
Olympic team, tbero Is great doubts ns
to whether MeGrath will accompany the
team. His kneo Is in bad shape, and
beouuso of the pain from it he has been
able to do little or no training. With

Human Punching Bag.
Evcrj'body who was at Goldfield re
calls how tho champion battered aud
thumped Nelson all over tho ring,
since which timo he has been nothing
but a punching bag for all comers. At
Los Angeles Jimmy Britt and Boer Un
holz whipped him. and then Abe Attell,
who is ten pounds lighter, made him
look liko a novice at tho Coliseum.
"How can ho then bo expected to do
feat tho greatest lightweight in tho
profession''' is the question that is
puzzling tho sports. The Attell-Gans
match was deemed one-sided, despite
tho remarkablo cleverness of the He
brew, eo if Attell is not looked upon
as a suitable opponent for the colored
boxer, why should Nelson be considered
a lit opponent? The fact that it is to
bo a forty-livc-round battle does not
improve Nelson's chances a particle, be
cause in their present condition Gans
should bo able to knock him out inside
of fifteen rounds.
Nelson himself is far from conlidout
and is only trying to pick tip tho loser's
end. This is" shown by his refusal to
allow the winner to take 7o per cent
of the lighters' sharo of the receipts
and his backing down on the $5000 sido
bet. The llegowisch lad knows ho is
in for a trimming, but is willing to
take it in order to add a littlo more
