Not until this season has an English
team visited this side of the Atlantic. An
Irish team journeyed across in 1887, but
could not do more than make a tame show
ing against the athletes of Manhattan.
This year, however, the London Athletic
Club sent a team across, and every one
knows about the glorious victory achieved
by the representatives of the N. Y. A. C.
There will be eleven events on the card,
as follows: One-hundred-yard dash, three

sixteen-pound hammer throwing, putting
the shot, two hurdle races, one-mile run,
half-mile run, quarter-mile run and high

The 3t2-yard dash and the turf hurdle's

games, and the American hurdle race is

division of difficulties, according to the
Yale view of the situation.

win it. Lewin and Fitz Herbert cover that

Yale admirers. Both men can make It in
0.10 when they are at their best. Wilding
can do better than 0.14)2-5, and Burnett,
who is somewhat variable, should tdo as
well as that.
Fitz Herbert Is looked on as a sure win
ner In the quarter mile, providing he Is In
goodi form. He runs the quarter In 0.49 3-5.
Richards has done 0.51, which is equal to
Crane will probably not be In It with
Capt. Horan of Cambridge. The former
runs the half-mile In 1.55 1-5, the latter In
Lutyens Is an English athletic star. He
does the mile in 4.19 4-5. while Morgan Is
about 4.30, good enough for second place,
probably, as Davenportd the other Cam
bridge man, only claims 4. ne5.
Capt. Sheldon, with 23 feet 5 inches, will
take the running broad jump, or "long
jump," as the Englsh term it. Mendelson's
best Is 22 feet 11 Inches. Mitchell of Yale
Jumps 21 feet 7 inches.
Johnston and ennings of Cambridge
claim 5 feet 8 Inches and 5 feet 7 Inches,
rapectively, in the high jump, but can
probably do better. Thompson of Yale has
dne 5 feet 10 3-4 Inches, ani Capt. Sheldon
can be relied upon for 5 feet 8 inches.
There is no doubt in the minds of Yale
men about the shot putting and the ham
mer throwing. with Hickok, Cross and
Brown In the field, but the hurdles are full
of uncertainty, and the falls that are al
wat liable to occur in those events make
an accurate prediction very diffieult.

The Visitinq Athletes.
The Cambridge athletes bade farewell to
their quarters at Newl Haven Monday and
came to this city and have continued their
practice at Berkeley Oat. The Cambridge
athletes are a well-bred got of men. There
is none of the cockney sor. snob about them,
and their appearance at all public places
has been so uncommdllyr unassuming, as
ccmpared with American collegians, that
they have made a host of friends.
The Britishers have been at work on the
Yale field pretty much every day since they
reached New Haven. They seldom rode to
the field, which is about: a couple of miles
from their hotel, and they never returned
ft om the field in a carriage or in the elec
tric cars, although the latter passed their
hotel and ran as far out as the field. They
are great walkers, and appear to thorough
ly enjoy the tramp back and forth from
the practice ground. They made no demon

field, and to the uninformed would never be

Capt. Horan said on leaving New Haven
that several members of his team had not
been feeling quite well for a few days and
attributed their indisposition to the sudden
changes in the weather, to which they are
not accustomed, but he hoped they would
be in good condition before the games.
RAWLINS IS CHAMPION.
A Mere Lad Beats All the Cracks on
the Newport Links.
The play in the open--golf championship
tournament at Newport yesterday resulted
in a grand surprise, the title being won by
young John Rawlins of the Newport Links,
who defeated Dunn, Davis, Campbell and
all the other cracks, leading his nearest com
petitor two strokes, and his instructor,
Davis, by five. Rawlins Is a mere lad, who
was scarcely considered as a probable win
ner. He is only nineteen.years old, of Eng
lish birth, and until within two or three
year- was a caddie at .Benbridge, Isle of
Wight, later. playing on several English
lirks. Last January he came to Newport,
and In July at Shinnecock Hills took fourth
position, sixteen strokes behind the third

How It Will Be Exerted to Make Uncle
Sam Release a Foot Bll Player.
As has been publithed 'n The Star's dis
patches, the foot ball tenm of Northwestern
University, at Evanston, Ill., is short one
good player. This is Van Doozen, an ex
cellent half back, who is now in the em
ploy of the United States as a member of
the life-saving crew on the lake front All
of a sudden this last summer Van Doozen
was instructed officially that he could not
play with the Evanston boys. It would in
terfere wit-i his efficiency as a life saver.
The boys appealed to Superintendent
Kimball, sayirg Van would not play during
his time on duty, and that his foot ball
work would really put him in better trim
for the arduous feats of life saving expect
ed of him. Vdh's presence on the team was
made a matter of vital importance. With
out him defeat stared the boys in the face
whichever way they turned.
Having failed in a direct appeal, the col
lege boys l'ave now organized a new line of
attack. They are all more or less politi
cians, and they have been making up a list
of Congressmen, Senators and others in
public staticn who belorg to the various
Greek letter societies, with a view to enlist
ing their aid. Accompanying the huge pe
tition which the boys will soon send to
Secretary Carlisle, who has the decision of
the matter in his power, will be letters
from a number of the university professors
who belong to the Sigma Alpha Epsilon
fraternity, of which Mr. Carlisle is a mem
President Cleveland will be approached
by some of his brothers in Sigma Chi. and
it is hoped that Postma.-ter General Wilson
will listen to brother Sigma Alph's. So. too,
Secretary Lamont is relied on by the Delta
Ups:lons, and Vice President Stevenson by
the boys of Phi Delta Theta. The Beta
Theta Pi boys will try to get Justice Har
lan and Justice Brewer, Senator Voorhees
and Attorney General Harmon to help them
TO STOP GLOVE CONTESTS.
The Virginia Legislature Likely to
Amend the Law.
It is very likely that the Virginia legis
lature at this session will be asked to
amend the law prohibiting prize fighting so
as to include glove contests. Gov. O'Fer
rall yesterday expressel great satisfaction
at that feature of the law just enacted by
Texas. It is expected that the executive
will make some such recommendation to
the legislature. Such ant amendment, it is
believed, would protect the Alexandria
county people from incursions of Washing
ton and other spectators who cross the
river ostensibly to have tIbese contests, but
really to conduct prize fights.

Foot Ball Games to Be Played ir
PRAM Or GAAUDET COLE
Striving for a First-Class M. A. C.
ATHLETICS AT GEORGETOW19
Some of the old foot ball players at Gal
laudet College at Kendall Green are back
and in cases where they are not new mem
have been secured who are filling the va
cancies acceptably. The Gallaudet boys
always have one advantage over their op
ponents, and that is that they are able to
give signals which are Greek to most cap
tains c! rival elevens. The team Is man
aged this year by Mr. G. B. Whittocke, a
junior from Illinois. The personnel is:
Sinclair, center; Rossou and Brooks,
guards; Dudley and Brockhagen, tackles;
Roth, Haig or Fisher, ends; Hubbard, cap
tain and ouarter back; Price and Grim,
half backs; Erd. full back.
Sinclair is from Ohio and is a junior. He
tips the scales at a hundred and fifty-five
pounds and has played center on the first
team for the past two years. Rossou is
from Tennessee, and Is a freshman. He is
just one behind Sinclair in the matter of
weight, and has played half back on the
college team for the past three years, two
of them while in the preparatory depart
ment. The breaking of several ribs will
not permit him to be stationed as a back
regularly, but if it is thought necessary
he will be put there.
The other guard, Brooks, from Texas, is
also a member of the freshman class.
Brooks is the heaviest man on-the eleven,
possessing a hundred and seventy-four
pounds of avoirduPois, but this is his first
experience in college foot ball.
Roth is a member of the junior class and
comes from Minnesota. "Quick on his feet
and knows all the points of the game'
about describes him. He has been a sub
stitute on the first team for the past two
years and weighs a hundred and forty-five
pounds of bone and muscle. Just who will
be the other end is not definitely settled,
but it will be either Haig, a member of the
introductory class, from Illinois, or Fisher,
a sophomore from the keystone state.
Fisher, one hundred and forty-one pounds,
has the apparent advantage, Haig only
weighing a hundred and thirty-three, but
in experience and tackling Haig is ahead.
All friends of Gallaudet will be glad to
learn that.Capt. Hubbard is again at the
helm. He comes from Colorado, is a se
nior. and tips the scales at a hundred and
thirty-three. He has played on both the
first and second teams ever sinze he has
been at college, and captained the '94 sec
ond team which was so successful.
Grimm, a senior from Pennsylvania,
weighs one hundred and fifty, and this will
be his first year as a half back. The posi
tion which he held so successfally in past
years-end-has fitted him for half. He is
probably the fastest runner on the team,
and will be a-power behind the line.
The other half is Price, who comes all
the way from the state of Washington, and
Is a freshman. He weighs a hundred and
thirty-six, and is nearly as quick on his
feet as Grimm.
.Erd. a sophomore, from Illinois, weighs
a hundred and fifty-two, and has never
played on the first eleven. He is well
built. and Is said to be remarkably quick
on the punt.
Manager Whittocke has arranged a
schedule of games, but still has a few
dates open for either the first cr second

lege, at Baltimore.
Maryland Agricultural College.
Last year the Maryland Agricultural Col
lege had one of the best foot ball elevens
that ever represented the institution. They
claimed the title of champions of Maryland,
but there was some dispute about it on the
part of another team. This year those in
authority intend that there shall be no
cloud on their title to the championship,
and to that end both the first and second
teams practice two or three hours daily.
Grenville Lewis. well known in this city
as a former full back of the Business High
School, has been elected captain again, and
the manager is W. S. Rollins. Capt. Lewis
will occupy his old position at full, while
Manager Rollins will fill the position of
Watkins and Nelligan. both of whom are
good at breaking up interference, are tak
ing care of the ends. Kenly at quarter
back is also showing up well.
The other places on the eleven are filled
by the following collegians: Walker, center;
Fuller, right half back; Millison, left half
back; Gardner, right guard; Henderson,
left guard, and Lewis, full back.
Captain Lewis is exceptionallysgood at
bucking the center, showing up especially
well against the heavy Columbia Athletic
Club team of last year. Manager Rollins
has arranged the following games to be
played by the first team:
October 19, with Western Maryland Col
lege. at Westminster.
October 26, with Episcopal High School,
November 2, with Laurel Athletic Asso
November 6, with Baltimore City College,
November 20, with Johns Hopkins Univer
sity, at College Park,
The team also expects to play in October
at College Park with the Central High
School and the Eastern High School, and
probably on Thanksgiving day play the
Cumberland Athletic Club at Cumberland.
Fosot Ball at Baltimore.
Within the last two years foot ball hai
made rapid strides at every college is
Maryland. with one exception, and that
the largest of them all, Johns Hopkins
University. Especially is the Baltimore
City College putting a good deal of atten
tion on the ganme. They have just finished
a series of inter-class games in which the
class of 'it8 are the victors. The object of
this series of games is to determine the
complexion of the college team. The meni
that will play on tihe team have been hard
at work for nearly a month, and are in
prime condition. The candidates as a
whole are' also a beefy lot and should come
pretty near winning nearly all the games
The Baltimore Athletic Club has turned
its attention from boating to foot ball, snd
has had the candidates for the teams out
at practice during all of September, in
cluding the hot spelL. Such well-known
Princeton names as those of the Poe and
Riggs boys are on the list of candidates.
The board of park commissioners of Balti
more, toward the latter part of the season
last year, forbade match games to be
played in Druid Hill Park, the battle
ground for many a year, and now It is
probable that the largest number of con
tests will take place at Oehm's Athletic
Park. a field provided for the use of the
youth of Baltimore through the munifi
cence of the well-known merchant, Mr.
Johns Hopkins, Washington College at
Chestertown, Western Maryland at West

THE JAPANESE BABY.
A Kind of Infant That Would Delight
Some American Mothers,
W. R. Curtis In Chicago Becord.
Every woman In Japan above the age
of fifteen years seems to own a baby, and
usually carries it around on her back.
Japanese babies never cry-they never get
impatient or discontented, but they stay
where they are put and enjoy it. You can
see hundreds of women at work in the tea
firing houses, where the temperature is al
ways very high and the work is very hard,
going through their twelve hours of labor
with babies three or four weeks old strap
ped upon their backs, and the babies never
whimper, no matter how much the mothers
shake them up when they are stirring the
hot tea leaves up to their shoulders in the
pans. Then, after three hours, when the
regular resting time comes and everybody

Toward noonday, when the sun gets hot
and the little ones feel sleepy, they lie
down on the floor like a cat or a dog. It
may be a pavement of brick or ston-, it
may be a board floor, but they need no
cradle, or blanket, or pillow, only a shel

won't be stepped upon, and they do not
have to be rocked or sung to sleep. They
take care of themselves. Their mothers
are busy earning eight, ten o' fifteen cents
a day by twelve or thirteen hours of hard
labor In di'tarehodse, where the tempera
ture is often up to 100 degrees all day long,
and the odor of tea is so strong that it al

bother them or add to their cares, and have
the good sense and self-control to find their
own amusement and look after their own
comfort, just like a puppy or a kitten.

Brothers Who Fell Out About a Matri

brothers had settled in Humboldt some
years ago, and our guide, who was mar

Sweden. The brothers talked the matter
over, and finally agreed that the married
