The intercity golf team match tourna ment week was brought to a close yesterday at the Brookline, Mass.. Country Club links by the playing of a Scotch foursome com petition or a four-ball event It was open to all the women of the Massachusetts Golf Association. Women's Metropolitan Golf Association and Philadelphia Women's Golf Association; but. as it was a scratch event, only the most expert players in the three associations took part. Miss Rhona Adalr_was one of the com petitors, and the star attraction as well. She had Miss H. Curtis for a playing part- I ner, and their opponents #ere Miss Georgi anna Bishop. Brooklawn County Club, and Miss Margaret Curtis, Oakley Country Club. The competitors were followed over the links by an immense gallery, who had a rare treat, as Miss Adair and Miss Curtis, whose best ball was 84, proved the victors, the best ball of their opponents being 86. MioS Adair was at her best and lowered the women's record of the course from 89 to 86. which new record was tied later in the day by Miss Fanny C. Osgood, cham pion of the Women's Massachusetts Golf Association, whose individual score was 8(>, as was that of the best ball of herself and partner. Miss Elsa Hulbert, Morris County Golf Club. There were other competitors, but their best ball was in no instance as low as 86. The best ball of Miss Adair and Miss H. Curtis was: Out 4 0 4 5 6 5 3 4 4?41 In 3 4 5 4 4 0 5 C 0-43?84 JOE GRANT D0WN3D. "Cuban Wonder'' Threw Washington Wrestler Twice. The wrestling bout at the Germnnia ; Maenerchor Hall. Baltimore, last night be I tween Joe Grant of Washington and the Cuban Wonder was won by the Cuban. Grant and the Wonder made a beautiful exhibition. The Cuban, under the condl ! tions of the articles of agreement, was to weigh in yesterday afternoon at 150 pounds. He refused to get on the scales and for feited $25. When he stripped in the ring he looked to weigh 165 pounds or more. Grant weighed In at 150 pounds. The bout was very lively. Grant made an excellent showing, but the odds In weight were against him. Many of the specta tors were of the opinion that Grant would win or at the worst get a draw. It is probable that C. J. Weiss. Grant's manager, the man who gave the show, was of the same opinion. If he was he, like the spectators, was badly fooled. The Cuban Wonder, by the use of a Nel son and body hold, won the first fall In twenty minutes and fifteen seconds. There was some pretty work done in the second bout. Finally Grant got a neck and-scissors hold on the Wonder and pin ned his shoulders to the mat. Time thir teen minutes and twenty-five seconds. The interest by this time was Intense. After a ten-minute rest the pair appeared for the final test. Neither appeared to have tired much after their previous exer tions and they clashed like men who were Just beginning a contest. Each was con fident to such an extent that he was fear less. After considerable work and many narrow escapes by each contestant the Cu ban Wonder secured a double arm lock and downed his man. Professor Bailey, the referee, was thor oughly Impartial, and did not award a fall until a contestant liad his shoulders pinned to the mat. RACES AT AQUEDUCT. Oarsman Created New Track Record for a Mile. Several acrobatic performances marked the racing at Aqueduct yesterday after noon. where another crowd of 10,000 tried unsuccessful to beat the card. The weather was charming, and the track was never in better condition for fast time. The mile record for the course was smashed In the third race, when Louis Kempner's high class three-year-old. Oarsman, turned the distance In 1.39 1-5. According to the spe cial arrangement of the weights Oarsman was In receipt of a pound from L. V. Bell's two-year-old Grenade, who was a hot fa vorite at 3 to 1. Oarsman was allowed to recede to 4 to 1, even though he was ridden by Redfern as against Callahan on Grenade. Futurlta was backed down to sevens, while Young Henry and Contusion were both played heavily. The start was excellent. ! Oarsman rushed to the front, but Callahan put Grenade under a choking pull, with the Idea of letting him down later. Redfern, however, kept Oarsman In front to the end, riding him out, even though he had five lengths to spare when he passed the judge. Grenade took the place from Contusion by a neck, the crowd emitting a concerted growl at Callahan's performance. There was a reversal in form In the Oak dale handicap for two-year-olds, at six fur longs. when Frank Regan's Dick Turpin came home with the money. The Henry of Navarre gelding carried big checks at fives and made all the running, though Cochran could not prevent him from bearing out all the way down the stretch. He won in a drive by a length and a half from Race King, who was beaten down from 4 to 1 to 11 to 5 favorite, the latter beating Dolly Spanker, the top weight, by a head. Sweet Gretchen. 13 to 5. was never prominent. Every horse In the race was played. The time was 1.13 3-5. Jockey Troxler was neither weak nor blind from reducing when he rode Ice Water. 5 to 1, In the handicap for all ages, at seven furlongs, the opening event, for he rode a level-headed race and landed the Watercress mare an easy winner by two lengths In 1.26 2-5, a new track record. It was a somersault as to form. Ice Water's last race, when Troxler pulled her up op posite the Jockey board, thereby losing place money, still being fresh In the public mind. Ostrich, e warm tip, after showing the way to the last furlong pole, finished second, a neck before Lord Badge, the fa vorite. Ascension, played heavily at 18 to 5. ran poorly despite Hick's herculean ef forts to get her up. The second race, for two-year-olds, at si* furlongs, demonstrated the fact that Wo tan, the even money favorite, lias had enough racing this year. He ran gamely, but could not overcome the lead taken early in the race by Flammula, second choice, who disposed of him In a hot drive by three parts of a length in 1.14 3-5. Re liance, 10 to 1, who was kicked at the post and afterward indulged In a bumping match with W. C. Whitney's Mlneola. ran third, a length away. Mlneola was eight lengths be hind him. The first successful favorite was All Gold, in the fifth event, at a mile. He opened at 8 to 5, but the money came pouring into the ring In such volume that he closed at 7 to 10. Burns kept him on the extreme out side, the old Rayon d'Or horse winning in a drive by two lengths from Melsterslnger, 10 to 1, who was In front at the last six teenth mark. The latter was a head before The Guardsman, 3 to 1. Paul Clifford, back ed down to 30 to 1, made a fast pace to the middle of the stretch, but exploded w challenged. t. R. Thomas' Buttons, who had been tipped all day and was favorite at 7 to 5, took the last race for maidens, at a mile. Redfern finished so close to the judges' stand that the officials could have reached lilm with a cane. The Jockey was busy striking the gelding over the head to keey him from running out as he passed the wire two lengths In front of Trepan, back ed down to tens. Dave Johnson's Erbe, sec ond choice, was third. The time was 1.40 2-5. Redfern rode two winners. NEW LEAGUE POSSIBLE. Ted Sullivan Trying to Form Minor Organization.

Two of the hardest gridiron battles of the season will be fought out today, and in each case a member olj the "Big Four" Is the favorite. Conservative critics concede to Yale a handy victory oyer the strong Columbia eleven, and to Princeton the palm over Cornell. At Cambridge Harvard will tackle the Indians, a team which, whilfe very fast. Is extremely light. The CrfmsiSn expects a lively game, but possibilities .of defeat are not seriously considered. Pennsylvania wlil meet the heavy Bucknell team, and here again, while the game will furnish a good test, an upset aeems most unlikely. New York University will meet Lafayette at Ohio field.

Hugging Hatch in Quaker City, Charlie McKeever of Philadelphia was to have met Young Peter Jackson of Bal timore at the State Athletic Club, Phila delphia, last night, but McKeever was unable to light and Cyclone Kelly was sub stituted. The bout was a miserable affair, in which the men clinched and wrestled the greater part of the six rounds. The spectators were disgusted with the actions of the boxers and hooted and hissed them throughout the fight. In the fifth round many of the people left the building. In the third, fourth and fifth rounds there were several mix-ups. in Which occurred the only fighting of the bout. Jackson at these times had Kelly weak and almost out from left swings. Kelly's punches had no effect In Jackson and he was forced to clinch to save himself. The referee had trouble keeping the men apart, Kelly was bleeding freely from the 1 ow 7~^ 7WT GEN, ARTHUR CIGAR mouth when he went to his corner at the finish. Decision Against Pittsburg Club. President August Herrmann of the nation al base ball commission yesterday at Cin cinnati. gave his 'decision In the case of Pitcher Ferry and Outfielder Mclntyre of the Buffalo club, who were claimed by both the Detroit and Pittsburg elubs. Mr. Herrmann finds that there being no evidence to the contrary the claim of the Detroit club that it has made bona fide deals for the transfer of both these players holds good, and that the draft of the Pitts burg club, therefore, cannot be allowed. The evidence of the Detroit club shows that Pitcher Kissenger, Infleiders McAllister and Courtney and either Yeager or Lush of the Detroits had been turned over to the Buf alo club in exchange for a choice of the Buffalo players, among whom were Mcln tyre and Ferry. New Pleasure Club. On Sunday last the "Cuckoo Pleasure Club" opened the season by giving a dinner at their new club house, at which all the members were present.

A dispatch from New York yesterday says: Samuel J. Parks, walking delegate of the Housesmiths and Bridgemen's Union, was this afternoon convicted of extortion for the second time. The jury in the case was out only eleven minutes when It ren dered a verdict of guilty. Two ballots were taken. The first stood eleven to one for conviction and the second was unanimous. Parks still maintained his cool demeanor and was led away to the Tombs. He will be sentenced one week from today. The charge against Parks was that he forced the president of the Tiffany Studio Company to pay 1500 to end a strike. On this conviction he can be sentenced to five years' imprisonment. Farks' defense was that the amount was a fine imposed for violating the union rules and went into the union's treasury. PASSENGERS IN DANGER. Attempt to Wreck a Baltimore and Ohio Train. A special to the Baltimore American from Fairmont, W. Va.t last night says: Joseph Raber, a former employe of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company, who claims to be from Fayette county. Pa., was arrest ed today at Mannington by the sheriff and a detective, charged with attempting to wreck a Baltimore and Ohio passenger train, loaded with passengers, by placing crossties on the track and so arranged that had the rapidly moving train struck the obstruction it would have caused great loss of life. Fortunately a slow freight train struck the obstruction first, as happened to be the case twice before in the last week. Raber was discharged by the company, and it is stated he made the remark that in some way he would get even with the com pany. KENSINGTON NEWS.
