"Old Reliable" Jim Mc- UI Guire and wffl*An Wrrived. Mack is, in N splendid condition, weighing less than he did at the beginning 9f last season, and says he do feels able to duplicate his last season's work, when he caught 132 consecutive games. He has spent the winter in fishing H and outdoor exercise, and for the past six weeks has been coaching a college team at p his home city of Albion, Michigan. Upon his departure from there Wednesday his a friends, headed by the college boys, accom- a panied by all the brass bands, drum corps al and other noise-producing Inventions of the place, escorted him to the depot. Some of the boys transformed themselves into an B improvised jinrickshaw, upon which Mack Id was triumphantly carried, much against his fi earnest remonstrance. Mack's mother d'ed i1 this winter, in consequence of which he will not return to Albion at the close of this sea eon, but will join Cartwright in a southern l sojourn. h President Hart of the Chicago club has g given it out that the coming season will be the last for the Temple cup, and backs up Is assertion with reasons therefor that I reach the length of a column in a Chicago r' paper. Washington will not be directly in- f terested in the Temple cup for the next 0 coujle seasons, but from an unbiased view ti of the situation, it would appear that for every reason advanced by Hart for the abandonment of the series there are at least p a dozen why they should continue. The a chief argument advanced by the Chicago y man is that the games are liable to become ir crooked, owing to the ad'ditional money that h would accrue, but that point seems almost a silly, as it is borrowing trouble, and rests upon no foundation whatever. It is also claimed that this division of money was what wrecked the brotherhood, while, in fact, the league was the chief sufferer of the two, every man in it losing money, while t AL Johnson was about the only sufferer i. the brotherhood. Hart's argument about the second club being bound to win the cup n is also flimsy, as base ball is too uncertain to pick winners, and because games have resulted the same way three times in suc- b cession it is no 2-to-1 bet that the club that . wins the league championship will not win I the Temple cup also in 'li. the Western n League has been presented with a similar trophy by a Detroit newspaper, and a little extra money will come the way of the first two clubs in that organization. This idea of the players raking in about $:0) each on extra-season games has been unpopular o with several managers since the great suc cess of the first cup series, and the financial question is no doubt the chief mote in the a Chicago magnate's eye. The best advice for g the magnates who oppose the Temple cup series is not to borrow trouble, and to let well enough alone. They made consider able money last year, but from present in dications will make more this, a'nd should look on the question in a generous way, and not begrudge the players the little additional remuneration they secure through hard r work in trying for the pennant. Last season there were really only two d clubs in the Departmental League, the P Bureau of Engraving and Printing and the ti Light Infantry teams, that could draw u: enough people to National Park to pay ex- b penses. Mr. Strasberger, who has secured B the option on the grounds, with last sea- ra sEn's experience staring him in the face, C. refuses to sublet the grounds to the De- 0 partmental League, and insists on a guar- co artee. With the other department clubs L out, it would not be a departmental B league, therefore, why not call it an ama teur league, take in the strong athletic n clubs and insure thereby a successful sea- bi son. Mr. Strasberger has no objection to h4 Mr. Sousa assuming the reins of manage- bi ment of the new league, if he will insist on of the clubs under him fulfilling their obliga- bi lions to the letter. The clubs last year ap- L peared at the grounds without suits, began b play so late that a full game could not be gr gone throi.gh with, and everything was di done in such a slipshod way that the on- i lookers frequently left the grounds in dis- is gust and never returned. When an ad mission is charged to see games, the pa trons should be looked after, and if this wise course cannot be pursued the coming 0 season, the grounds will be closed to ama teur clubs. Catcher Zimmer and Left Fielder Burkett n of the Cleveland club have refused to sign a contracts with that club for this season un- 1i less they are allowed the limit-2-1). Without these two men the Spiders will be weakened about 15 per cent, as Burkett is the best batter in the country, and there are none better than Zimmer in the catch- s~ ers' class. These players have been offered $2,100, but are worth the limit if any one is. Mr. Robison of the Clevelands says lhe will go no mora, and charges the players with ingratitude, because be gave them the P oliportunity to play in the Temple cup series and thereby make about $550. The Cleveland club cleared about $2,00j0 last season, owing to the superb work of the 3 players, and incidentally got into the Tem ple cup series. Had the team finished, say, O Sixth, would the club have cleared that hice sum? Now, because the players who a contributed about 15 per cent to last year's success demand an increase of $dfl0 as a e reward for their good work, the Cleveland magnate charges ingratitude. Both Bur- sl kett and Zimmer have more than a fair share of intelligence, and will, no doubt, a play for the salary offered rather than re main idle, but it is a fair guess that they a will not put forth their b:est efforts, but will give exactly 12,100 worth of play, nothing 3 more, nothing less. Last year Childs' dis satisfaction probably lost the Clevelands si the pennant, as through his absence and poor play fully a dczen games were lost, ti With Burkett and Zimmer dissatisfied, it Is a foregone conclusion that through lack S of unity the team will be lucky to finish In the first division. Young and Cuppy aj may pitch their arms off, but if they haven't the proper support their good work B will go for naught. Instead of a case of ingratitude, it looks like a cr se of non-ap- T preciation. 54 From all the surface indications it ap pears as if the entire New York press has T takeuit in its head to drive Fred Pfeffer off the New York team. The attacks made on cj him are not open and above board, but break out here and there in little para- U grapha to the effect thiat it is becoming evident day by day that Pfeffer will not do S at second and that he will have to go. One writer especially has bad it in for Pfeffer U ever since last fall and has kept up a con tinual bombardment of abuse ever since. el The first game Fred played in Jacksonville he had II put outs, 3 assists, 5 hits, includ- V lng two doubles, and I error, The one error did the business, and he was ham- it mered by this persistent writer, who is with the .Giants on the trip to the south. it In the games since then Pfeffer has more than held his own and cannot but strength- n' en the New Yorks where they were weak last season. He is undoubtedly one of the I" kest second basemen in the business, taking I i batting, fielding and base funning into con- pi sideration, Bid McPhee being about the fi only man that can outpoint him. If Pfeffer gets away from New York be will undoubt- Ii edly go to Chicago, and, if the backers of O the latter club are not doing a little mis sionary work in thie way of subsidizing the 1' New York base ball writers to "knock" * Fredl, then all the indications fall. Arthur (I Irwin is aware of Pfeffer's worth and will try to hold onto him, but persistent under- cl hand play cannot but have Its bad effect in P' the end, S Urnse DaH Notes. Tommy Dowd got what he went after and Went to Texas wIth the St. Louis team. Dick Cooley and Breltenstein are still out side the fold. The former wants tmore mon-F ey and the latter clalms the club broke Its agemnt. "Tuck" Turner for Cincinnti wouldn't be a bad move. The Piles can spare him, P and h* would strengthen -the Red Legs *I wrhere they are a little weak. Hoy and y Burke are better fielders, but 'Tuck" as a d' - hatter ls In A-I class. The aleveian havs are crowing over thetP b etories with the Pttdbtirgs out at Hot wings. The latter club is minus Ely, -the iortete9, and the pitchers are takimg ings easy, therefore it Is hard to get a 1e on the two clubs. The exchange of Cartwright for Tucker mes not look like a bad one for either side. artwright outfielded and outbatted the oston boy last season, but the Senators e shy on hustlers and Tucker would be great help to Joyce. The lines are drawing closer around the cssatiafed players, Rusie, Breitenstein, urkett, Zimmer, Cooley and Foreman be g the only ones that have not signed ntracts and are still outside the breast orks. The strength of the Senators will be in 'eased the coming season owing to the fact tat every player on the team is satisfied ith his contract and has no kick coming rer salary. If there is playing ability on ie team it should come out. "You Lose" Mack of the Pittsburgs says e smoky city team will make a runaway art in the pennant race and keep It up roughout the season. He only wants ree straight at Cincinnati at the opening the season. If Pittsburg can hold to ther through July they should be well > in October. Eight Louisville boys will be found in the orfolk (Va.) team this season. More rain at the Springs. At least ten Lys have been lost. Five inches of rain in nine hours at ouston, Tex., made Anson gloomy. McGraw was hit by the ball Tuesday. e didn't talk for five minutes. John T. Brush has doled out those silver asses. Digby Bell received one. The cost of the improvements on the Phil lelphia grounds is placed at $15,000. Catcher Dick Buckley of last year's Phil lelphia team has signed with Indian olis. Tom Daly of the Brooklyns says he has > fear of being replaced at second base by gnner. With Latham captlin, Von der Ahe pres ent, Diddlebock manager and Mucken iss secretary, the St. Louis club Is heav r handicapped. Tom Kinslow considers John Mullarkey te of the most promising of the young ague pitchers. "I don't know where he ,ts his speed from," says Tom, "but he s it, just the same, and some mighty od curves with it." Fred Pfeffer has not been playing like a an who has "dissipated for months," or ho was only on the verge of the grave cently. He has hit safely in each of the re games he has played in, having a total ten hits. He has a record of twenty ree chances accepted without an error. xchange. Suppose Harry Stovey had listened to the eadings of "Bill" McGunnigle in 181%) and cepted the offer of $15,000 for a three ars' contract to go to Brooklyn, $2.000 advance. His subsequent career might tve entirely changed. He would have had "cinch" for three years at any rate, as us Abell's word is as good as his bond. orse, in Sporting Life. Never before in the history of base ball St. Louis has there been as little con lence in the ability of the St. Louis Team cope with those in other league cities, d this is largely attributed to the fact tat the getting together and getting into ape of the players has been sadly >glected.-Ex.

Now he Is between two rind ig millstenes. McPhee's w( rk is as clean and brilliant ever it was, and the only proof that he not as ycung as he was when he joined ie Reds in 882 is a picture of the team of 182, which hangs in a half-way house near me New Orleans Park. This represents ack as a slim. smooth-faced boy. Breitenstein went out to Sportsman's ark Tuesday, but did not come to terms Ith Mr. Von der Ahe.

He also informed reitenstein that his presence around the Lce track was "distasteful, and would tuse unnecessary comment." It Is now in der to raise the old howl of "he Is dis intented and will not do good work in St. outs" to furnish a good excuse to sell reitenstein. A Cleveland paper says: "Philadelphia is > stronger than last season, while Pitts irg is a great deal.

NATURE OF THE EVEN' The most interesting international a lelic contests will be the Olympian gas at Athens next month. America will represented by a team from Princeton C lege, who sail for Naples today on 1 steamship Fulda. The athletes will go fr Naples to Brindisi by rail, to Patr Greece, by boat, and by rail again Athens, arriving there the day before 1 games begin. The contests will be held Athens from April 5 to 15. This gives the men no time to train i cept to take such exercise as may be p sible on the steamship. Departure From Princeton. It is safe to say no other athletic conte in which Princeton has ever entered I caused more enthusiasm among the und graduates than the ones to be held Athens. Pandemonium reigned at the de; yesterday, when, amid the cheers of the tire undergraduate body, the quartet star on the journey. The men, with the exception of Jamis were in excellent condition. Jamison is s fering from a sprained ankle, but will he shape in the course of a week. Capt. W of the Fulda has promised to give the a letes every opportunity to train while on water, and a daily schedule of work I been, prepared. Captain Garrett expressed himself as ing confident that his men would acq themselves creditably, and that their effo would reflect credit upon America and I athletes. While none of the young men who i represent the college at Athens next moi have distinguished themselves at the M Haven games, two of them, at least, 4 believed to be intercollegiate winners un favorable circumstances. These are La '97, and Tyler, '97. Jamison, '97, and C tain Garrett are not considered quite promising as the other two members of team. The Team. Captain Robert Garrett prepared for lege at Baltimore, and entered Princeton 1893. He is the son of the late T. Harri Garrett, a brother of Robert Garrett, former president of the Baltimore and 0 Railroad Company. In his freshman y at Princeton young Garrett showed so ability in the weights and jumps. Trail George Goldie took him in hand. trained 1 in putting the shot especially, and has n succeeded in putting him very close to first rank of college athletes. He has gradually increased his distance the shot-put from thirty-five to forty fi In the broad jump his best distanie 21 feet 9 inches, and in the high jump 5 f 8 inches. At Athens he will enter all th events; in addition he will compete in horizontal bar vault and the throwing the discus. He recently established a' c lege record in the horizontal bar vault doing 7 feet 3 inches. Captain Garrett twenty-one years of age, weighs 176 poun and stands 6 feet 1% inches tall. Francis A. Lane, '97, is the man wh Princeton students look to more than a other member of the team to win glory his college. At his preparatory school made a wide reputation as a sprinter, w ning the championship of Ohio in the 1 yards run in 10 1-5 seconds, and subseque ly in 10 seconds flat. In the fall handic games at Princeton he won his heat in 1 hundred from scratch in 10 seconds flat, 1 the effort lamed him, and he did not en the final heat. He is now in the very p1 of condition. Mr. Lane is twenty-one ye: of age, weighs 155 pounds, and measu 5 feet and 10 inches. Albert Clinton Tyler is widely known the right tackle of the 'Varsity foot 1 eleven. After Captain Lea's injury in 1 Harvard-Princeton game last fall, Ty was ir.trusted with his place in the line. I home is at Wyoming, Cincinnati, Ohio. '93 he competed in the fall handicap gan of the track team, the pole vault being specialty. He is the holder of the st record for Ohio in the pole vault. He twenty-three years of age, stand 6 feet I and tips the beam at 180 pounds. He c enter but one event at Athens-the p vault. H. B. Jamison of Peoria, Ill., is the luc youth whom Captain Garrett has selected take as a substitute for Colfelt, '99, why parents objected to his accompanying 1 team to Athers. His best performan are as follows: 100 yards dash, 10 1-5 s onds; 220 yards dash, 22 3-5; quarter-n run, 53 3-5 seconds. At the interscholas championship meet in 1893 he distinguisi himself by winning for his school th events, the 50, the 100 and the 220 ya: dashes. In the fall of 1893 he went to Prin ton and secured a position on the tri team in his freshman year. Since that ti he has represented Princeton on the tra in all games, and has made a credita record. He will run in the 400 meters ra which is about equivalent to the quart mile run on American programs. His weij is 1:.o0 pounds, his age twenty years, and height 5 feet 10 inches. For the last four or five weeks Mana: E. B. Turner and Trainer Jack MacM ters, have been at work with a few of1 track team with the purpose of gett) them in training for the Olympic games.

The exact date of the origin of the Gr< Olympic games is unknown. This is owj to the fact that the ancient Greeks deal: the' origin of the Olympic festivities to pear of a much earlier date than they we The legends of the people tell of the ginning of the games and of- their sign canoe regarding religious matters,1 nothing authentic is known concerning: date of their origin. The first games which anything is recorded were of humble and unimportant variety. 'j events in the first games were limited long distance races, These contests of 14 distance. runningr were held on the me ure4 course known as the Stadium. Gr; ugiby these athletic contests became m and more important among the Gree and as their importance increased the nt ber, of the events was also made larj After the occasion of seventh Olynm theweathyas well as. the coma ega trnedthei attentien to them, a from that time until nearly the fall ofi Grecian empire the games increased in1 portance.

The Washington Athletic Club and the y, Carroll Institute are again tied for firs1 n place in the bowling league series. 'The W. A. C. won two games from the Y. IL C. C. lart evening on their own alleys, and e this puts that organization even with the ,- Carrolls. The W. A. C. boys covered them. e selves wIth glory', and bowled a brillianI game. The work of the two leading teami Swill be watzhed with a great deal of inter s est from this time out, as they are botl1 p evenly matched, and some close contesti tare looked for if the teams should end the a season tied for first place. The scores lasi s night were as follows: W. A. C., first game, '- 837: second game, 865. Y. Mi. C. C., firs1 g game, 653; second game, 707. W. A.

About the Wheel "Modern Cyclist,"~ writing to The Star, says: "As this Is an appropriate time for I bicycle enthusiasts to air their views, I want to comment on the tendency of cycle. 1i dom toward br'ghtly-colored wheel.s. A feu .years ego, one seldom saw them finished n in anything but a monotonous black enam ,el, or a rust-enticing nickel; there 'was ne r distination-all looked -alike, and one could hardly recognise his own if left amona a number of others..- The last season has e shown a most welcome tendency toward a ~change, and the exhiboit of the leading 0 lines at the cycle show indicates such a full turn of the tide that we may now hope ~to see a complete break in the monotony. d "What a funpreal aspect our streets would r'- show if all carriages, wagons, herdics and street .'ars were in somber black. The hi. se cycle is coming into more general use than n any other vehicle, and its emancipatio. Is from its mournful robes is most pleasing i- to the eye, in conformity with good taste, r- and ope~ns an opportunity for individual. ir Ity." ro "Humanitarian" writes: Please allow one ds Like een truly wonderft ar favor.
