RECORDS ARE SMABiD NEW FIGUU3S lUNG UP BY TBU JOLLY PAT KgN. - Big Golf Events-Pin Basket B&l Baltimores Best at Indoor Base Ball-New Orleans 1aces. Last night was a busy one among .the bowlers of the city. Three leagues had out teams and four contests were pulled ff, the District League having four teams In play. Although the weather was very cold the crowds at the different alleys were large and the enthusiasm displayed at the Jolly Fat Men-Golden Eagle games was almost unbounded. The Departmental and Raiway Relief League also furnished interesting contests. There were two matches In the District Bowling League last night, one at the Gol den Eagles' alleys and one at the Saenger bund. At the former the Jolly Fat Men's Club took three straight games from the home team, while at the Saengerbund the home team wiped up tae visitors for three victories. The victories of the Jolly Fat Men put them in an apparently impreg nable position at the top of the league, hav ing now won about four-fifths of the games in which they have played. But the strik ing feature of last night's match was the wonderful bowling of Crist, who made the record score of 256 in the second game-by several pins the best ever made in a league contest in this city. To accomplish this he also established a new record for continuous strikes, starting a run at the third frame which lasted through the rest of the game, giving him a total of eight strikes. In the final box he missed one pin in the second set-up, and scored 29 in the ninth, finishing with 20 in the tenth. He was remarkably well supported by Ludwig and Harlow, both of whom bowled over 200, the side totaling 1,048. the greatest score In the league's history for a regular match game. Harlow's work was also prominent throughout the evening, and he quit with the great average of 218 for the three games. His big score of 2jg In the final game loses its prominence only on account of Crist's total. The entire series of games was dotted with brilliant individual play, every man on the Fats having one or more scores of 200 or better, and during the evening strikes were almost continuous. Campbell of the Eagles was the only man of his team to reach 200, and he sailed way beyond that mark, having 213 in the open ing game. The first game was the only closely bowled one of the series, the Eagles getting within fifteen pins of the winning score. The other games were clearly the property of the visiting five from the outset, though the home team bowled excellently. The scores follow: FIRST GAMS. Golden Eagles. Jolly Fat Men's Club. St. Sp.

Meanwhile the Saengers were fattening their averages and their league standing at the expense of the Takoma boys, who had made the five-mile journey in from their suburban homes, through the sting ing cold, in hope of again smashing the German five as they did in a game at the park last week. But the home team were equipped for some good bowling, and had little difficulty in taking the three games from the league infants. The Takomas did not get out of the 700 class in any of the games, and only once, when the Saengers rolled but 782 in the opening game, did they get anywhere near their competitors. The German five played rather consistently together, none of the men having any remarkably good scores nor falling off to an extremely low total. The kores follow: FIRST CAM1E. aengerbund.

The Camden basket ball team, the cham pion of the United States, defeated the Washington Light Infantry team last night by 64 to 24. Although the score was one sided, the local team played a fast and snappy game, but could not stop the goal throwing and passing of the visitors. There was never such team work and accurate throwing seen here before as that of the Camdens. The Infantry team seemed to have "hard luck" last night, as in a num ber of instanoea they had a good chance to score, but the ball would wabble all over the rim of the basket and finally drop to the floor. The Camdens threw goals from some of the most difficult positions, and the whole game seemed to be an easy task for them. Whenever any one of their players had the ball they would scatter in the most advantageous positions, and it was a mat ter of little work to obtain a goal. The In fantry team lacked team work and continu ally fumbled the ball. One of the largest gatherings that has ever witnessed a local contest of this sort was present, and there were also a few rooters present for the vis itors. The line-up was as follows: CAMDBN Positions. W. L. I. Tomae............. Forward .............Loftus Ferat...--......... Forward ..............Taylor Keenan, Eos........

A. easily defeated the Corcoran Cadets at Armory Hall last night in an in door base ball game by the score of 25 to 13. Up to the sixth Inning the gaine was close and exciting, the Baltimoreans only having a. lead of one run at that time. In the fourth Inning the visitors took a lead of six runs, but were unable to hold their ad vantage, being tied in the fifth. The Baltimore tearm got a batting fit in the seventh Inning, which continued until the end of the game, securin in these three inning fifteen runs.

Mannhack Won Carnival Stakes in Dashing Style, Manshack, the fast little pony bred on the Texas plains, showed his heels to the fashionably bred thoroughbreds that start ed against him yesterday in the carnival stakes at the New Orleans track and beat them home easily. The horsemen from. the Lone Star state backed their representative until they nad not a dollar left, and the odds were less than even money. They had the greatest confidence that be would beat Dick Ber nard, the most dangerous rival. This trust was not misplaced. bManshack went to the front like a whirlwind In the early stages of the race and, carrying his opponents along at a merry clip, exhausted them early. He then came home, as the Texans said, "on the bit." After the race the colt was run up to 32,000 and sold to Durnell & Hers. Capt. Burnbury, trainer for 0. G. Parker, the owner of Manshack. claimed Dick Ber nard, the Durnell & Herz entry, for $4,C85, bist the stewards denied the claim on the ground that Burnbury was. not -the duly authorized' agent of Parker. Bud Emnbry was run up to $1,505 by James Robertson and bought in. The owners' handicap, at six furlongs, produced a pretty contest between eight of the fastest sprinters at the track. St. Cuthbert was the favorite at 5 to 2, but he failed to bring home his backers' money. He t-ried to keep up -with Scorpio, but the latter made him leg weary, and he stepped. Just as Scorpio appeared to have the race at his mercy, L'Etrenne, the fast Engllsh mare, came with a rush and made a bold challenge. A poor start and her effort to make up lost ground proved too serious a handicap to overcome, and at the finish of a desperate drive Scorpio was in front by a neck. The time of the race-LID d-G--is the fastest made here is several weeks, Yesterday Was Devoted to Playing Of Tis.

Many of the spectators expected that Slosson's recovery of form, which was shown toward the close of Tuesday's game, would be continued last night. This, at first, seemed to be the case, but his play soon weakenled, and Louis Cure rapidly forging ahead, won easily in the twenty-fourth inning. The score was: Cure. 000. with an average of 20 9-10; Slosson, 219, with an average of 9%. EASY FOR CANADIANS. Princeton Hockey Team Outplayed at AU Points.
