THE FROPOSED HENLEY PB3OJBTED PRIZE FIGHT AT DE TROIT PROBABLY OFF. Largest Ice Boat in the World Being Built-Leading Universities Enter in Fencing Tourney. The belief is expressed that the "Ameri can Henley." to be held at Philadelphia next.July may cause the national regatta to be rowed on the Potomac. Last Octo ber's successful regatta' has encouraged lo cal aramen to more ambitious undertakings. It has already been decided to hold a Po tomac river regatta here. Hopes are enter tained that the other and more important event will be under local control. Philadel phia oarsmen, it is understood, will bid for the national regatta, but it is unlikely that two big regattas will be rowed on the Schuylkill. If Lake Quinsigamond does not get the national, the Potomac river prob $bly will. The Philadelphia Inquirer says: "No formal application has been made for the event from this city, and much is to be considered before such a move can be .taken. It is an expensive luxury, costing between $1,800 and $2.500, and as a rule, the local rowing men are obliged to go down in their pockets to foot the bill. Club men whose colors are being carried to the front by winning scullers or crews do not hesitate to contribute liberally; but the club, which is not represented by a compet itor is loath to give the regatt financial support beyond the usual club assessment." May Displace the National. It is thought by many oarsmen that the American Henley will in time supersede the national regatta of the N. A. A. O. One prominent oarsmen and coach who does not wish his name used, says that the Ameri can Henley will bring out at least fifty more crews from various parts of the east who will not now compete at the national regatta because they declare that many of the crews which row there every year are semi-professionals, and, therefore, have a big advantage over them. It is to get out this large number of amateur crews that the American Rowing Association has been organized. That it will be the biggest stimulus which rowing has ever experienced in this country is ad mitted by all oarsmen. The New Association. Thomas Reath, chairman of the rowing committee of the University of Pennsylva nia, says that the American Henley will become the meeting place of the best crews in the United States or England-if the Britishers wish to try their luck on this side of the Atlantic. Said Mr. Reath: "The object of this regatta is to further the Interests of amateur rowing in general. No definite rules of eligibility have as yet been decided upon, but they will doubtless make eligible any club which in the opin ion of the board has a clean record and which can produce an amateur crew. The requirements for a man being an amateur will not, in my mind, be as fast and set as the present accepted amateur rules. Petty errors, which, in the opinion of the board, are insignificant will probably not be counted against a man. An amatuer crew should be one composed of men who are not gen erally considered professionals. "It is our hope in a few years to have a large number of entries from the various universities. It will take some time, how ever, for our plans to be carried out, and not many are anticipated this year. At present the collegians will be classed with the club crews, but if in a few years the number of entries is large enough a sepa rate class will be arrsnged for them. There are several obstacles to be encountered by the university crews. "The shortness of the time intervening between the Poughkeepsie regatta, on June 26, and our regatta, on the 2d of July, is the principal objection. The length of the course is only a mile and a half, and the majority of the college crews will have been training all spring for four-mile races. Then the keeping of the 'varsity eights to gether after the close of the school year will- be another dificulty. Doubtless, how ever, a few university crews will be en tered. They will probably not be the regu lar eights, but will be composed of mem bers of the 'varsity and men who were can didates for it. "There may also be some graduate crews entered. If the alumni of the university have a club it will be possible. Members of a Pennsylvania 'varsity crew are made life members of the University Boat Club, and a graduate crew could easily be en tered by that club. Whether the other uni versities have such organizations I do not know. A graduate crew would be classed with the club crews. "In January another meeting of the board of stewards will be held and all these considerations settled," SUES CYCING AS80CIATION. Cyclist McLean Wants Damages for His Suspension. A Boston special says: Whether or not Chairman Batchelder of the National Cy cling Association has a right to suspend a racing wheelman will be determined in a law suit which Alex. McLean has brought against the body for barring him from the tracks controlled by the N. C. A. in Amer Ica, and by its allies in foreign lands. McLean was suspended on charges pre ferred by Floyd McFarland, Otto Maya, Benny Monroe, Howard Freeman, George Leander, Ruts, Gougouitz and other riders for failing to pay them a claim of $1,600 for participating in a six' days' race at Revere Beach in 1901. McLean went to Australia with the intention of racing there, but after his long trip found that his suspqpsion by the N. C. A. held good there, so he was compelled to return broken in spirits and purse. TRAINING HArDan. Corbtt Eager. to Make a. Match With Jefries. Jamcs 1. Corbett Is training at Toledo in the hope of securing the coveted match with Jeifries. Ctirbett says he was never in as good a condition in his life. He said, how ever, that he feared his zealous training will come to naught. He wishes to meet Jeff rie next May for the champiionship of the wprkd. Corbett declares that he cannot induce Jeffries to sign articles, although his own money is up. After leaving the stage yes terday he worked at the training' quarters until those about him thought he must be anout exhausted. Then he took on Harry Casaoun, a clever boxer, who went several fast rons with him. His footwork is greatly improved and he mov, like light ning. As soon as Calhoun was worn out Corflett at once took on Addison J. Clarke, former deputy sheriff and a scien~tifie boxer. Corbett then at once took up his ring and pulley work. The amount of training of all kinds he is doing every day is sim ply wonderful. ATE THE CHAigPIONggrp.

Vrank Erne Bays That He Will Nt Enter Big. Again. If looks count for anything. Frank Era who has returned to Buffalo from Se irancisco, is in prime condition and fit I a eet anything that bobs up in his pal f the- pugilistic pond should he care I 10 so. He is apparently none the worse for I recent defeat at the hands of Jimmy Brit and speaks highly of the latter. Thei seems to be none of the envious fighter I Erne's makeup, for he says that Britt is :lever, scientfic, courageous fighter, and possessed of an almost Impenetrable de renae. Erne corroborates the story fro] I!riseo that he has retised -trom the .ri 'Tm out of the game for good," said he. Speaking of his recent defeat, the form lighter said: "Britt Is entitled to all tI credit. He is a gentleman, as well as lighter, and is .well connected socially. "B Il a pugilist for the love of the sport, ne so much because he wants the money ai cruing from his battles, and the sa thing may be said of the men who con pose the Yosemite Athletic Club, befoi which we fought. They are all busine and professional men of standing in ti community, -and If there were more Brit and more Yosemite clubs pugilism woul assume a higher standard In the world sport. "Britt is intelligent, and if brains cou1 for anything then he promises to remaJ In an exalted position among the whil boxers for many years to come." "Do you think he has a chance to bee Cans?" was asked. "I certainly do." replied Erne, quick!: 'But he will never fight a negro. If there anybody who can beat Gans, Britt is ti boy who'll do it." A CRICKET ASSOCIATION. Determined Effort to Be Made to 0: ganise One. It seems settled now that a determini effort will be made to organize a nation cricket association. For 'several years ti talk has cropped up, but heretofore no a tion has resulted. Mr. A. E. Rundle of t) Metropolitan Cricket League of New Yoi is the latest devotee of the bat and wick to attempt the formation of a national international league. It looks now as if h effort might succeed. A series of letters hi been forwarded to all the secretaries cricket clubs throughout the country ai Canada asking for suggestions and co-op ration in the attempt to form the associ tion, and already replies are beginning come, without exception being strongly favor of the scheme. The most popular plan suggested to da seems to be one proposing to form a leagu probably to be called the North Americl Cricket Association. The governing bod it is proposed, will be a board of delegat elected from a series of divisions formed control the sport in the various sections this country and Canada. There will-be ti sections or divisions on the Pacific coa: one in the south, two or more in the centr or Mississippi valley, one in the north as at least two on the Atlantic coast. Thei in addition to the divisions formed "In t Dominion of Canada, will, if the plan su ceeds, form the controlling branches of t league. The association will assume control of t game in this country, and, it is hinted, w make some sweeping changes in the playli rules now governing the game. Local division championships will be held, and national trophy has been suggested, to held by the winners, subject to challen from any division championship team aft a year's notice. If the indications continue to be favoral a meeting will be held early in the comi) year. either in New York or Boston or Philadelphia, to consider carefully the se timent of the various clubs which have be approached in the matter. FIGHT MAY BE OFF. McGovern and Corbett Do Not Expe to Box in Detroit. While Billy Considine, the fight promote says positively that he will pull off the M Govern-Corbett fight in Detroit, follows of boxing in that city are not enthusias over the prospects for a meeting betwe the two great featherweights. The fighte themselves are of the opinion that th stand little chance of meeting there. Th have had. their conidence shaken in Con, dine by the failure of the promoter to p up the iI000 he promised to post as a f< felt to guarantee that the bout would held. MotGovern and Corbett say that Considine is sure he can pull off the bati he should prove his confidence by posti: the money. It now looks as though the men will fig either in San Francisco or Louisville or r1 at all. Sam Harris, manager for Terry !M Govern, made this positive announceme yesterday. Billy' Considine wired Harr telling him not to take any stock in the!r mors that have been printed, and that could positively pull off the contest betwe McG3overn and Corbett.. The excuse he gives for not posting t forfeit is that the club's articles were rn signed, and that he was waiting to get t signatures of both men before posting t: forfeit. In reply Harris telegraphed Considine the effect that Governor Bliss of Michiga having stated that he would not allow t contest to take place and notified the sher not to allow the men to enter the ring, Ha ris thought it best to call the contest off, far as Detroit is concerned. He expects t fight to take place in Louisville or 'Fris early in the new year. McGovern wili main at Mount Clemens until it Is decida where the fight will take place. - ElTEIES' CONQUNBOE.

Leading Universities Will Enter Teams.in Coming Tourney. The first meeting of the newly-formed In tercollegiate Fencing Association, composed of West Point, Annapolis, Columbia, Har vard, Yale, Cornell and the University of Pennsylvania, will be held in New York January 8. It is proposed to Inaugurate a new policy of having an intercollegiate committee ar range the dates for all dual college meets instead of allowing the colleges to arrange their individual meetingq. The different clubs will suggest at the conference those dates which they would like to have fixed, and then the conference will pass upon them. Those dates which have been ar ranged up to this time .are tentative until the coming meeting. The annual intercollegiate championships will probably take place March 21, and it is- suggested that the meet take place at the New York Athletic Club, just as last year. Some of the colleges, however, are In favor of holding the tourney at the dif ferent universities in turn. Charles E. Goodhue and Dr. J. M. Hammond have been appointed a committee to make all necessary arrangements. THE SICK AND NOISH. Discordant and Unneemry Sounds That Disturb Cities. From the Philadelphia Record. In many- instances the courts have been appealed to by the friends of the sick to suppress unnecessary noises in the neigh borhool-most often the pounding of a piano by some heedless or heartless person. In no known case has a court interfered. It has been held that there Is no law under which a person may be restrained from doing anything which is allowable in ordi nary circumstances, out of consideration for the sick. A notable case was that of a prominent New York judge who was too ill to be removed, and who was tortured by the piano playing of a musical neighbor. .When all requests were ignored the judge's physician applied to A court, affirming that the afliction robbed the sick man of his one chance of recovery, and that he must die unless the musician could be forced to restrict her performance. The court ex pressed great indignation% but admitted it was powerless to interfere. In Chicago, however, the health depart ment has not hesitated to do what the courts have refrained from doing, and that in the case of a business establishment in which the noise was a part of its necessary operations. A girl of fifteen years, a vic tim of typhoid, fever, was tortured by the noise of a steam hammer, and her physi cian maintained that her recovery was en dangered by it. An officer of the health de partment investigated the matter, and under the advice of the corporation counsel ordered the police to stop the machine, which they did. It is not known that Chi cago enjoys any special law on this subject, and it is probable that the health depart ment simply exercised the arbitrary power which Is held by similar bodies elsewhere. That there ought to be authority in the health offBce to take such action in its dis cretion is reasonable. Human life is of more -importance than a few days' idleness of an industrial establishment. It is not to be supposed that the officers would act in this way save in the case of a person too ill to be removed and where the affletlon actually menaced the life of the patient. 1'EOXOTDNG ENLISTED MEN.
