WON ON POINTS VETEBAN KNOCKED DOWN HIS OPPONENT TWICE. Good Bowling Games ill Different Leagues?Lakewood Golf Tourney ?Fast Basket Ball. Bob Fitzsimmons proved l^t night at San Francisco that heVvas not a "dead one" when lie outboxed and outgeneraled George Gardner for twenty full rounds: Fitz was as cunning as of yore and apparently real izing that he must foster his strength, there was not a moment when lie was not careful ness personified. While the old man could avoid punishment from Gardner, he could not knock his op ponent out, although he landed a number of vicious biows. From his performance Gardner is not in Fitz's class. He landed on the old'timer once in a while, but Fitz was always going away from him and the blows were harm less. Several times Fitz apparently had Gardner almost out. but he was either too tired or lacked his old strength and could not land a knockout punch. Fit* was very skillful in blocking and dodging Gardner's blows and in the clinches and breakaways w is very careful. The fight did not please the spectators and the men in the ring were frequently hissed when they went through a round without appar ently trying to fight. Referee Eddy Graney. at the close of the contest, said that it was the worst fight he ever saw. He was forced to give the de ' J? Robert Fitzsimmons. cision to Fitz because the latter secured the knockdowns, but otherwise did no dam age. It was apparent that neither man was j qualified to claim championship honors. Fitz's Hands Hurt. After the fight Fitr. appeared to be over joyed at his victory and claimed that the reason he did not knock Gardner out was that he broke the knuckles of both hands early in the contest. It was either for this reason or because Fitz chose to act mainly on the defensive that the fight was not finished long before the twentieth round was over. Gardner's eye was cut open and h s nose knocked askew, while Fitz bled a little at the mouth. Beyond that there was no dam age. done to either man. Gardner demon strated that he did not have a hard punch in him. Whenever he landed a swing !t had no force In it and his left jabs had no otjier effect than to make Fitz's nose and mouth a bit red. Fitz stood several times with his guard open and allowed Gardner to poke him In the nose, so Fitz cculd step in and land short arm Jolts. There were occas oiiil flashes when the Fitz of olden times ap peared for a moment. But it was only for h moment. He seemed to tire quickly, and after a short vicious rush, during which he would land on Gardner and take the giit out of him. he would rest during the remainder of the round. Fight Starts. In the first round they went to the center quickly and indulged in sparring. Gardner darned around lively and ducked a vicious left for the jaw. They came together with out result and Fitz missed a left swing for the Jaw and then evaded a similar blow from Gardner. Fitz sent a straight left high on the chest. The fighting was slow, both men using great care. Gardner was short with a right uppercut for the Jaw. Both men then missed lefts for the head and Gardner received a stinging straight left to the Jaw Fitz followed this with an other left to the Jaw and a right to the stomach. Fitz sent Gardner's head back with a left hook on the Jaw. Gardner then planted a straight to the face. Fitz blocked a hard left for the stomach as tiie bell rang. The advantage was slightly witli Fitz. who received absolutely no attention from his seconds as he went to his corner. Fitz ap peared to be suffering from h cold. In the second round after considerable sparring both nv.ssed lefts for the body. Fitz got in a light to the head and Gardner landed twice on the Australian's kidneys with right. Gardner drove his right twice to the l>ody and received a left to the body and a right to the jaw In return.

The intercollegiate Cross-country Asso ciation held its fifth annual championship on the New York Athletic Club course at Travers Island, near New York, yesterday, and representatives from six of the lead ing eastern colleges had a battle royal for the honors. The course was a trifle over six miles, it being three times around a two-mile circuit, with the start and fin ish In the center of the athletic field. A string of thirty-nine men toed the scratch for the contest, and out of this formidable pack thirty-three finished In good shape. Only the lirst four men in each team counted, and when the final tally was reckoned it was found that Cornell had earned the team honors by a comfortable margin. Harvard, Yale. Princeton, Penn sylvania and Columbia finishing In the or der named. Individual honors also fell to the Ithaca Institution of learning, in the person of W. E. Schutt, who, after the first mile, led the field, flew over the wfiter jump near the end and breasted the tape like a Speedway stepper. Cornell's decisive victory in this branch of college athletics demonstrates that she is far ahead of her rivals. Out of the five years which the competition has been in existence Cornell has won the team hon ors four times, the other victory going to Yale. Scores: Time. M. 1..W. B.

Trouble Over the Stile of Foot Ball Tickets. As a result of the expose made by the Yale foot bull management of the names of those whose" tickets to the Yale-Harvard foot ball game it is alleged were found in the hands of speculators, a hornets' nest has been stirred up among Yale men and graduates. It was stated last night in New Haven that, as a result, a number of suits for damages were not unlikely. Among the names published was that of Carl A. Mears, a well-known lawyer and Yale graduate of New" Haven. Mr. Mears at once took steps to secure the removal of his name from the so-called "blacklist." He received telegrams from friends to whom he states he gave his foot ball tickets saying that they will make affidavits that they used them for themselves. Mr. Mears has demanded a,, retraction, and says he may take legal action. Another name published in the "black list" was that of J. T. Oxley, a Yale senior and member of the Yale foot ball squad. Mr. Oxley says he secured his tickets for friends In Boston and had no thought of speculating. He, also, is Indignant and threatens suit. Announcement was also made by the Yale men that tickets allotted to the members of the foot ball team of Holy Cross College had been found In the hands of speculators. Other names published are Harold F. Hemel, Jamaica Plains, Mass.; Frank W. Klett, New Britain. Conn.; G. N. Oaboury, Chlcopee Falls. Mass.; G. H. Breaker, Northampton, Muss., and Oor-ydon Palmer of New York city, the latter a 1W05 man of the Sheffield Scientific -School. As some of tliose whose names are pub lished are at home for Thanksgiving recess, and none of them lias been given an oppor tunity of disproving the charge against them, It Is anticipated that the publication of the names will create more of a rum pus and of a different kind Uian was in tended. basket ball.

New York Supreme Court Decides Race Track Suit. Peter de Lacy and his counsel secured their first point yesterday in New York in their fight against the race track bookmak ers. when the supreme court handed in two opinions, one of which reverses the decision made by Civil Justice Murray, dismissing a suit brought by Raymond P. Moulton to re cover $50. which he asserted he lost when he bet on the horse Squid at the Morris Park track. Moulton asserted that the bet was made wltli William J. Torpie, a book maker at the track. Moulton sued Torpie and the.Westchester Racing Association. Justice Murray dis missed the suit against both the defendants. The supreme court of New York yesterday sustained him In dismissing the suit against the Westchester Racing Association, on the ground that the association was not con nected by evidence with the wager, but" re versed his decision dismissing the suit against the bookmaker, and ordered a new trial It was contended by counsel for Torpie and the Westchester Racing Association that Moulton went to the race course with the intention of betting upon the result of a race, and if he lost to sue for the recovery of the money, and for that reason could not recover, as the suit was a "fake one."

O'Connor, Turner and Ransch Back From France. Three American jockeys who have been eminently successful on the French turf arrived in New York Tuesday on the Ivron prlnz Wllhelm. They are Winnie O'Con nor. Nash Turner and J. Ransch. Ail were ^n excellent health, pleased with the recent past, glad to be in New York at present and confident of the future. Turner and Ransch have been riding for the W. K. Vanderbilt stable on the French tracks and have achieved remarkable suc cess, Turner piloting the winner in many of the big stake events, and Ransch ending his season with a percentage unusually high for a light rider. Weights being higher over there. Turner had many opportunities in the important stake events and grasped them to advantage. O'Connor went to France early this sea son to ride for Buron Rothschild. He was reported to have signed a three-year con tract with the banker-sportman at a very big salary. Soon after the season opened the American rider clashed with the trainer of the Rothschild stable, out that did not prevent his having mounts on the horses entered by the baron in inrortar.t races.

He expects to come to Benning. and may be seen in the saddle several limes before its season ends. He is now at his home in Brooklyn, to which he went soon after landing. THREE-CUSHION BILLIARDS. Rapid and Increasing Popularity of the New Game. The rapid and seeming ever-increasing popularity of the three-cushion billiard game is proving a source of wonderment and regret to the masters and exports of the regulation game. It is contended by tfie professional bill iardlsts that in the three-cushion game, un less played by professionals, the element of chance enters too largely to make it really a scientific game. It is also claimed that all the delicacy and skill required to play the French game are merged Into a condition of shoot hard and trust to the ball landing in the right place eventually In the three-cushion game. As a result experts frown upon the three cushion game and rarely can be persuaded to play it, claiming that it destroys their stroke, as does pool playing. Nevertheless, despite the condemnation of the experts, the three-cushion game has to a great extent ousted the straight rail arid even balk-llne game in the United States. An old-timer discussing the game at one of the billiard halls a few days ago evolved a novel solution of the situation. "I know." he said, "that the three-cush ion game is more popular in the T.nlted States than anywhere else in the world. Of course, it is not played in England, be cause the English game is a sort of pool, and I also know that it is not played to any great extent in France, as well as otter European countries where knights of the cue flourish. "It Is my opinion that the three-cushion game is popular in the United States be cause of the temperament o? the people of this country. "The average citizen of the United States U more or less sportively inclined, but not like the Englishman or Frenchman. "In tho vernacular he screams for action all of the time and the three-cushion game Is on the same deadly parallel as is cricket to base ball. "Bath games are sports undoubtedly, but in one the player is working all of the time, and In the other he has long and. to us. weary waits. . "This analogy holds true with the three cushion game versus the straight-rail or balk line. ,ti , . '"The American citizen Is so constituted that he does not enjoy sitting by watching his opporent do him up. He wants to be doing something occasionally, anyhow. "Billiard players, as a rule, in the stralgftt rail or balk game, can make a break of from twenty to fifty and that take? time. It is harrowing for the American to sit by and watch a score of (hat magnitude being piled up while he Is helpless. "On the other hynd. the three-cushion player who can run four or five is good It 13 generally a case of shoot once and give the other man a chattce and in thi? way both flayers have plenty of action for the money, they spend for the game, as well as any opportunities to 'pull and wotk off their surplus' vitality In throwing all of their'^opes into a ball going just a few Inched further or hitting a corner at the corrett angle. "Prtl' these reasons I believe that the three-cushion game !s here to stay and the old-tfme easy; beautiful and graceful straight-rail game is rapidly becoming a thins of the past." TTAT.T HOUR'S ANGLING. Boston Man Caught Five Different winHa of Fish in Maine. Frank Farnsworth reached Beddlngton, Me this week from Pleasant Mountain Lake, where he had spent a few days with Henry Thayer, a Boston man. and told this story of a fisherman's luck: "Right In front of the door of the camp," he said, "a big log projects a couple of feet out into the pond, and I saw that man Thayer take five kinds of flsh, right out of that one spot, with the same flies and all within a space of thirty minutes. "For three days Thayer had gone to that l*r just before sunset with his rod and mil because Dr. Inman of Cherryfleld said his brother took a big square-tall from the log three years ago. But nary a rise did Thayer get from anything except chubs during all that time, although he thrashed the lake until dark each day. On the fourth day of the stay Thayer made his usual prepara tions for a try from the log. " 'I reckon there are some flsh around that log," says Thayer to me; but I Only laughed at him and said he was wasting hie I time. "The conditions that particular afternoon were just right for casting. The wind blew I oS shore, gently rippling the surfuoe of the ; water, Just enough to prevent the flsh from "Wonder What Mertz Will Say Today?" "At the Sign of the Moon."

There came a splash at once, and Thayer quickly tossed a half-pound chub on the sand. " 'That's the way they always start,' re marked Thayer. "And the very next minute the truth of his words was shown when he got a terriilc strike. The reel buzzed merrily as the fish tore offshore for fifty yards. "Thayer checked liim gently and then be gan reeling in. Forty feet from the beach the fish broke water and angrily shook his head in a desperate endeavor to shake the hook free, but Thayer gave him the slack at just the proper moment and down to the bottom wer.t the trout. He wns a big (ish. I can tell you. and the way he bent that rod up showed that lie was also full of fight. For fifteen minutes Thayer was kept busy trying to get that square-tail some where in near shore, and himeby he was able to lead him around on the surface of the water, and then I hooked him up on the beach with a gaff "That fish weighed four pounds and four ounces by a new pair of scales. "Thayer said that there were more fish in the lake, so he kept on casting, and in less than three minutes got another strike. This time it was a salmon, and he turned a somersault out of water the minute he felt the hook. "After that try. it was easy, to reel him up to the log. and. although he made one mad dash to the bottom, his strength was all gone and I soon had him on land. The salmon was a pretty one and weighed three and a quarter pounds. "Thayer kept right on with the same flies, and got a couple of rises that he thought were from big chubs, but when one of them did take hold, he saw right off. front the way the fish tried to sneak away, that it was a white perch. That perch was drop ped Into the basket right off, and it wasn't long before Tliayer had something else on. "Did you ever hear of an eel taking a fly? I never did.* either, but, sure enough, Thayer hooked one. and he was a cracking big fell6w. too. He wiggled and pulled back every time Tliayer tried to reel him in, and he had so much strength that I expected to see the rod tip go any minute. "It was Impossible to get the eel ashore by the usual method, so. finally. I waded In and jabbed away with the gaff until I got the point Into his squirming body, and then I took him up on the beach. I never saw but one as large, for this one weighed over four pounds. "That was the best half hour's fishing I ever saw." Easy Fight for Sullivan.
