The veterans, Daly and Cross, of tne
Br'xiklyns. have been playing brilliant ball
at Pitt.?burg.
McGlnnlty Is slated to do the pitching for
the champions at Pittsburg today, and he
?nay be driven to the woods, good as he is.
Three straight victories for the Brooklyns
would almost break Fred Ciarke's heart,
tout it looks as though the champions are
cut for a quick decision.

the past season.
On.y four timti la the past tweuly-nin#
years have the Bostons failed to win more
grames than they lost on a season. No v.*on
der there is no Joy at the hub this tail.
Mike Griffin will find out next montn
whether he can draw $3.G00 by not playing
base ball for an entire season. His suit for
damages against the Brooklyn club will be
heard at I'tica, N. Y.. early in November.
The St. L<ouis team closed the season wun
a catcher by the name of Stein doing duty
in place of Robinson, who left the team
about a week ago. Stein took the place of
Buelow. who, a contemporary says, lost nis
Job by getting on good terms with too many

fixed on him?$.Vj<>.
Jimmy Casey, who was farmed to Detroit
by the Brooklyn club, is the first man who
has given Norman Elberfeld a good charac
ter in a long time. He is perfectly rlgnt
when ha says that Elberfeld s aggressive
ness, t!:at borders on rowdyism at times, Is
due solely to hia interest In the game. He
considers Norman one of the most wonder
ful players extant.
A Chicago writer who has watched the
work of Do!an, one of the youngsters se
cured by Loftus, ?>ays: "Some of our young
sters are making go<jd. but 1 am afraid Co
zey Dolan is going to be a failure. He can
not field. Tom Burns gave '.he player a
great recommendation and he certainly is
one of the best Inside men 1 f\?.r saw,*but
he covers less ground than a dog tent and
is supremely awkward in the field."
As an illustra; on of the weather-vane
policy of s.'me of the players, when six
weeks ago It was stated that the Protective
Association Intended to break the reserve
rule with a demand for a three or five years
limit. Secretary Jennings entered a denial
of the statement and explained that- tne
players appreciated the fact that the re- j
serve rule was an absolute necessity for
the protection and salvation of the game.
But the publication of the National League's
remarkable reserve list the other day evi
dently convinced the players that it was
time to take a shy at the rule which has
held them tight for so many years.
McGraw said at St. Louis after Sunday's
"Well, the season of 19<M> Is over with.
Where will I be in 1901? That remains to
be seen. 1 have spent a plousant season in

ungrateful wretch If 1 registered a com

every one knows, I prefer returning east

assured that I will put my best efforts for

All the "Big Four" Teams Indulge in
Hard Practice.
Miss Hoyt Captures First Honors
on Baltusral Links.
Some Innovations were Introduced in the
practice of the Princetons yesterday after
noon on the university fle4d. Instead of dis
pensing altogether with the line-up on ac
count of today's game with Syracuse Uni- ?
versify team, the scrub and "varsity lined
up and played a game without scrimmages. I
This entirely new plan consisted in having
kicking plays and allowing no line bucking.
The men were thus forced to do much run
ning, and there was a decided development I
of speed on the part of the ends and backs.
The quarter backs and full backs were
given much room to display their skill in
running back punts. Humbird, especially,
distinguished himself in this respect, doing
semt splendid hurdling over tacklers and
making big gains.
Another new feature introduced was the
practicing of the backs on signals without
any line in front of them, the center being
ihvj only lineman in the drill. Several sets
of backs were thus tried, and there seemed
to be less difficulty in getting the men to
start promptly than if the linemen had been
in positions, as the temptation of the backs
tj wait for the linemen to move was obvi
"Bosie" Reiter. the star half back of last
year, was admitted to signal practice yes
terday foi* the first time this season. It is
said that he may be in Princeton's line-up
today against Syracuse. He practiced in
the place of Hodgman, who was injured in
a serirrnnage Monday.
A surprise to everybody who watched
practice was the beautiful place kicking of
Dewitt, who has been kept out of practice
for many days on account of an injured
hand. Dewitt showed great skill, placing
the ball nicely from the forty-yard line,
at nearly every attempt. Tyler, 'i>7, and
"Mike" Bergen, '!)5, were on the field, and
the latter worked hard at coaching the
Bad Weather for Penuxy.
The foot ball practice of the University of
Pennsylvania was again secret yesterday
afttrnoon, with the exception of the last
party, which consisted in a short practice
game with the scrub on the old athletic
field. The first part of the practice was on
Franklin Field. Coach Woodruff gave Cap
tain Hare and Graves some work in punt
ing and dropped place kicking, in which
bcth did effective work. At this juncture
of the practice it began to rain and Coach
Woodruff took the 'varsity out into the
bas>* ball cage and gave them a half hour of
signal practice. The rain had rendered
Franklin Field too wet for use. and for this
reason Coach Woodruff next took the 'var
sity and scrub to the old athletic field and
lirieu them up for a short practice game.
Captain Hare and Wallace were not al
lowed to take part in the practice, as Coach
Woodruff is afraid that they might receive
some injury, which would keep them out
of the big games. For this reason neither
of these men will take part in the game
with State College this afternoon. Zlminer
maii played left guard in yesterday's prac
tice in place of Hare. Bennett played right
tackle instead of Wallace, while Horner
took Zimmerman's place at tackle. This :
was the first time that Horner has been
used to tackle, and he showed up exceeding
ly well. He was given the ball on several
occasions .and never failed to gain ground, i
Bennett also put up a good game at tackle, ;
his work in this position being superior to j
that at end. In the practice game the i
'varsity made short work of the scrub and j
succeeded in scoring three touchdowns.
niic Day'* Work for Yale.
It was another hard day's work for the
Yale 'varsity foot ball team on the college
gridiron yesterday afternoon. Benjamin, 'UN;
Butterworth,'95; Heffelfinger, '01; McBride,
{fa ?.Mike" Murphy, Cutten, 'W. and Adee,
*87, were on hand to do the coaching, and
they made things hum for the big fellows.
Two halves of twenty-five minutes were i
played, and the 'varsity could make but
two touchdowns. Cook made the first one,
after twenty minutes of play, by a magnifi
cent run around left for thirty yards,
helped by excellent interference, and Hyde
made the second, after four minutes of play
in the second half. After that it was great
foot ball. The scrub team was given the
ball, and the back field, augmented by Hef
felfinger, McBride and Benjamin, slammed
into the 'varsity for repeated gains of from
five to ten yards against the best sort of de
fense work.
Heffelfinger. who tow-red above all of the
men except Sheldon, Brown and Hamlin,
was a host in himself at full back, and he
threw his immense muscle and weight into
each play.
When the 'varsity, after the finest kind
of defense work, had secured the ball on
downs, which they did several times, Hef
felfinger went into the line against Shel
don. McBride played full back and Benja
min half. Against this strong combination
and the regular second team the 'varsity
backs were sent in for plunge after plunge,
and played the hardest foot ball seen thus
far at the field. The 'varsity, under coach
ing, were picking up toward the end of the
second half, and against such odds were
making their ground.
Ferguson was put on at Coy's right end
yesterday afternoon, and Richardson at left
guard In place of Brown. Fincke played
quarter back in place of Wear, who played
on the second team. Miller took Sharpe's
p'.ace at left half back, and put up a bril
liant running game. Hale and Hyde alter
nated at full back, and both made good
gains. The feature of the afternoon's play
was the attempt of the 'varsity from the
thirty-yard line to make a touchdown. Re
peated plunges by the backs carried the
ball to the college five-yanl line, where a
fumble by Chadwlck gave the ball to the
second team.
Harvard'* Beat Men KanlnK Braises.
A surprise was sprung on Harvard stu
dents at the foot ball practice yesterday on
the college grounds. Burnett, last year's
center, who kicked several goals from field
in Important games, appeared In foot ball
clothes. He has passed the condition which
has been hanging over him. and is again
eligible to play. Burnett has been keeping
himself In condition and will soon be ready
for hard work. Hallowell went through
signal practice, but did not go into the
line-up. A number of the best men were
not out yesterday on account of various
| injuries. Farley has water on the knee,
1 Campbell is laid off for a needed rest; Ken
; dall *>layed but a few minutes; Lee has his
j left hand bandaged, and Graydon Is nurs
ing a sprained ankle.
I'rellminary work was omitted yesterday.
! The first team lined up against the second
j for thirty minutes, scoring two touchdowns,
Ellis bucking the line for both. There was
frequent fumbling and off side play, and a
lack of team play back of the line. Ker*
nan attempted a goal from field from the
twenty-yard line, but Sargent passed the
ball above his head. Just as time waa called.
Miss GMt on the Road Airain.
Not satisfied with breaking the 3,000-mile
road record, Miss Gast, the woman century
rider, started out early yesterday mornlr.s
over the Long Island roads to add further
i records to her list. After finishing up the
2,000 miles on Monday night. Miss Gast
went to bed and slept soundly for several
hours. At 8:05 yesterday morning she
arose, and. securing several pacemakers,
started out again on the weary grind over
the Valley Stream course. At noon yester
day she had completed 2,100 miles, and at
5:45 p.m. she had made 2,175 miles, and
said that she expected to complete the 2 200
miles before midnight. It was said that the
woman made cfne of the twenty-five-mile
circuits yesterday afternoon in one hour
and eighteen minutes. Miss Gast was
paced during the day by John Castles, L.
Rusoh. K. W. Dilks, William Lawson and
several women.
At the meeting of the Associated Cycling
Club9 of Long Island on Monday night one
of the delegates Introduced a resolution
that such performances by women were
aot only demoralizing, brutal and detri- ,
mental to health, but alap to the moral*
of the community. Somyjof the delegates
objected to the Introduction of "morals"
into the resolution, and that expression was
dropped. It was the^sense of the delegate#
that such exhibitions should be stopped.
Tem pirton and ?*nf?|oB Woa Yea>
ifPdHj i Stake Eveati.
A moderate card and the prospects of ft
bright afternoon brought a fair assembly to
the Morris Park races yesterday. The sport
began with one of those hideous affairs for
non-winning boys #ho as Din- to become
jockeys some time in the future. After
Midnight Chimes had run away with 'he
midget on her back, and Fatalist had
broken the barrier, the field was sent away
on pretty even terms. The antics of the
little fellows were ridiculous. Olea and Rl
naldo rushed Into the lea* half way from
home a:id raced to the wire head and head,
Rinaldn winning, lie w?s second choice in
'h? betting. (>?ea was p. 9 t<) 5 favorite.
Kiliaahamlra was the pii-k of the specula
tors for the Dixiana b.aKes, but sue was
again beaten, this time uy Gonfalon, from
Hildreth's stable. Killashand;a was at 7
to 10 in the betting anU Gonfalon 2-> to 1.
Many thought that Turner waited too long
with the liily, and that sne ought to have
capiured the siarie easiiy. It. was worth
$1,200 to the winner. Red Path and Iro
quois Belle were withdrawn.
Malster, from the Feaiherstone stable,
with O Conner up, was thought to be an
easy winner in the Silver Brook selling
stake, and he was plunged on as if the race
were over. \\ hen the barrier went up Mal
j a good position, but he cotild not
hold it. and finished far behind the win
ners. He did not like the hill, and would
not extend himself in any part of the race
Templet on, a rather smart Ally, won at
odds of 4 to 1.. Lief Pr;nce was second
and Maximus third. Inshoot, at a long
price in the betting, carried the colors of
Michael Clancy to victory in the second
race, a selling affair for two-year-olds Tal
cose. Billionaire and Himself were all well
backed and Talcose and Billionaire ran a
\er> ?a*r face, but Himself, who appeared
for the first time in the purple and gjld of
J. J ( afTerty, made a sorry exhibition and
was beaten off.
Three were taken out of the fifth race,
leaving five to run, with King Barleycorn a
warm favorite. The race was run in a heavy
rainstorm, which seemed to please the
King, as he galloped home in front of Ham
mock and Herbert in the easiest possible
manner. Only three started in the last race
i oT the day. and the outsider won. Miss
jHanoyer was an overwhelming favorite at
4 to 5 with Belle of Orleans the next in
demand, at 2 to 1. T. Monahan's Presti
digitator won the race by the shortest
margin imaginable from Miss Hanover It
was a dingdong finish all through the 'last
furlong, and nobody knew who had won
until the numbers went up. S. C. Hildreth
will shiD all of his horses to Chicago on
f Later part of the stable will go
to California.
Hoyt Win* Fimt Place in Hnltun
ral Tonrnanient.
Miss Beatrix Hoyt of the Shinnecock Golf
Club was tBe star of the woman's annual
golf tournament which started yesterday on
the Baltusral links. Short Hills, N. J.
The trice national champion won the
eighteen-hole medal play round with the ex
cellent score of 97. This round, besides
serving to qualify the contestants for match
play for the two cups, was also a handicap,
with prizes for the best gross and net
scores, Hoth of these prizes were taken
by Miss Hoyt, as she played from scratch.
The other scratch players were Miss Gris
com. the present champion: Miss Underbill
last years champion; Miss Curtis, Miss
Caleb Fox and Miss Hurlbert.
Miss Griscom and Miss Curtis made the
next best score to Miss Hoyt's, covering the
course in bfcj, while two more strokes were
required by Miss Underbill and Miss Mc
Lane, a Baltimore player.
As the latter had a handicap of two
strokes, her gross scoro is on a par with
the others tied for second honors at 105.
The weather conditions were excellent for
the fair enthusiasts, whose red coats and
bright-colored costumes were supplemented
bj tlie brilliant attire of the large Katherincr
of onlookers.
Many of the spectators formed a gallery
that followed the players from hole to hole,
while others viewed the contests from the
smart traps which lined the carriage swoeu 1
back of the first tee.
Vardon Play* Good Golf.
Seventy-seven strokes for eighteen holes,
the last nine holes except one halved be
tween Vardon and the best ball of Donald
J. Ross and Alexander Findlay, is -yester
day's summary of as fine a contest at golf
as has been witnessed in the vicinity of
Watertown, Mass., in some time. The
match was the first round of a thirty-six
hole contest on the links of the Oakley
Country Club, at Watertown. At the close
of the forenoon's play Vardon was 3 up on
his opponents' best ball, and his score of 77
for the course beats the professional record
by one stroke. Throughout the match Var
don excelled at driving, but was unusually
weak on his putting. Findlay was off his
game, but Ross played brilliant golf.
Xelfton Defeat* McDnllle.
At the Chicago Coliseum last night
"Johnnie" Nelson of that city, defeated
"Eddie" McDufTle of Boston in a fifteen
mile motor-paced bicycle race. The time,
2i.3<?, breaks the world's record for that
distance, which formerly stood at 28.34 2-5.
Nelson won through sheer pluck. In the
sixth mile his motor broke down, allowing
McDuffie to gain a couple of laps. Nel
son, nothing daunted, stuck until his second
pace machine had been manned, and. after
coming away again, set a pace too hot for
McDuffie, and the Chicago boy won by a
lap and three-quarters.
John Lakf. the speedy amateur who rep
resented- the National Cycling Association
in the Paris races, set u. new record for
the mile indoors in competition, making
the distance in 2.00 1-5 from scratch iri
the mile handicap.
"Jimmy'" Michael gave a clever exhibi
tion of motor-pace following and set a new
record for the mile at 1.40. beating the
previous record, 1.47 1-5. made by Arthur
Ross in Madison Square Garden "last win
ter. George Ueander, the Chicago amateur.
In his five-mile paced race against Orlando
Weber of Milwaukee, set a new record for
the two miles, making the distance in
3.40 4-5, as against Ross' mark of 3.52.
Harnett* Races at Old Saagux.
The fine racing conditions were made the
moat of at the Old Saugus track, near Bos
ton, yesterday afternoon. The Judges dis
ciplined Miller, who drove Garnet in heats
of the 2.16 pace on Saturday, by suspending
him and his mare for a year. Stone, who
replaced Miller yesterday, was awarded
In the 2.28 trot, started Saturday, Harlow,
the driver of Kentucky Frank, did not suit
the judges, and In the fifth heat was re
placed by Trout.
Again, in the 2.09 pace the Judges assert
ed their authority with Art Alio. Gillies
was substituted for Doble in the third, and
the bay gelding won the next two heats
handily. Doble was lectured and then sus
pended with Art Alio for one year. Gillies
being awarded $100.
Centrals Defeat Georgetown Prepa.
The Central High School lads journeyed
out to the Georgetown campus yesterday
and on the university gridiron faced the
"Preps" of the blue and pray for two fif
teen-minute halves. The game was a fierce
one from start to rinlsh, and when the um
pire's final whistle blew the score stood 0
to 5 in favor of the Centrals. Many excit
ing and well-ex.cuted plays were witnessed
and the onlookeis were continually cheering
on their favorites. The feature of the game
w?a?.*a 8P,end,d goal kick from the field by
f ui.back Coleman of the "Preps," while
the line bucking and end play of Tandall
Taylor, Brush antf Purcell-was worthy of
Brooklyn* In Great Form.
The Brooklyns continued their splendid
playing at Pittsburg yesterday in the sec
ond game of the series for the Chronicle
Telegraph cup, and easily defeated the Pi
rates by the score of 4 to 2. The fielding
of the Pirates was something weird. Third
Baseman Williams having four errors
charged against him, while their bating wis
lamentably weak, but four hits being made
off Kltsun. On the other hand, the cham
pions played without an error and managed
to bunch their hits with the Plrat?s error*
