SPORTS OF ILL SORTS Steeplechases Should Be Run on Business Principles. NEED OF CONTINUITY MANY IMPORTANT DECISIONS BT NATIONAL TROTTING BOARD. Fast Fight in Philadelphia?Death o? Noted Oarsman?Medals for Autoists. One element which has done much to ward making racing successful in every country where it has become an institu j tion is the fact that it has been taken up j by the fashionable set. says Belmont Purdy i in the New York Telegraph. And yet the fashionable element cannot alone make ! racing of any sort go, as la proved by the i utter failure of our smart set to make a racing success of the hunt-race meetings, all of which are racing failures while at the same time successful social gather ings. Cedarhurst was a failure because those who started the enterprise counted on its earning sufficient to pay its running ex penses. and they were insufficient to carry it over a bad period. Mr. W'aterbury's race meetings at West chester, at the same time as Cedarhurst, were a dead financial load on that gentle man. who discontinued them when he could not afford ft) run them out of his own pocket any longer. The Meadow Brook meetings of that pe riod were stopped because the Stewart es tate's manager wanted rent for an unin closed part of the plains, from which no income could be derived because no gate money could be collected, and the Waverly and other meetings we"e discontinued be cause the principal ones?Meadow Brook, Cedarhurst .and Westchester?were stop ped. Later on Mr. Whitney gave hunt meet ings 011 his place at Westbury for two years, when ho also stopped, and lately tliere has been some effort to start them ' again on Long Island and in Westchester ?all mors or less unsuccessful, but all backed up by the fashionable people whose sanction goes a long way toward estab lishing a sport of any sort, from golf to bull fighting. The reason for this want of success is that two other factors are equally impor tant. and both are well understood by the gentlemen who have our racing interests in their control. One is that to succeed the sport must be carried out on sound business principles, and the other is that It must be run. as sport, in such a way as to give its patrons confidence that it will be continued. They want to feel assured that colts purchased with a view to mak ing them Into hunters which may be able to win the Meadow Brook cup or the West chester cup three or four years from now will certainly have these cups to race for. It is the lack of these solid racing princi ples which has made the hunt meeting a failure with us, in spite of society's back ing. Any reasoning man who takes an inter est in steeplechasing must see that, in spite of the fact that there is little In common between our hunting and our version of the sport between the flags, it is the hunt meeting which should supply the more serious branch of sport with horses and riders. Take the horses of H. S. Page, W. C. Hayes, T. Hitchcock, jr., and other hunt ing men, and you never see them being schooled in public, nor do you see the men from the hunting field making exhibitions of themselves in jumping races. As it is now, steeplechase jockeys get their school ing in the infield with the green horses or in public In races. If the hunts would run their little meet ings twice a year regularly, and all meet together once a year where they could compete, club against club, on an inclosed course, such a meeting would be crowded by a class of people willing to pay if> at the gate instead of $2, and in time the sport of steeplechasing could be put on a better basts than !~iks possible today un der existing conditions. This year has brought about a lot of good in the jurnpip< races, but still much improvement is to !>e expected and may be reasonably looked Cor from the hunt clubs and the horses and men brought up in that school?not from that class which knows nothing better than getting over brush jumps as fast as possible in a way that will win, even if It uses up the animals prematurely and kills or maims reckless i men who know that they are risking their I necks to make a living. DECISIONS OF TROTTING BOARD. Horsemen's Representatives Decide Many Important Questions. The second day of rhe meeting of the board of review of tha National Trotting Association at New York yesterday waa occupied for the greater part of the time with (jases that did not border on the sensa tional. A decision that had a bearing on one of the sensational cases of the session last year was a ruling on a race, at Nashua, N. H.. on July !? and 10. 1902, in which the four pacers. Lexington. Reed Patclien, Bell Mine and Gambit, contested. The associ ation was not pleased at the manner in which the horses were driven, and suspend ! ed Bell Mine and Gambit and the drivers for one year. It was tills action that ! brought the case before the board of review last year, as the suspended drivers brought I a complaint before the board that the i drivers of Lexington and Reed Patehen I were also in the combine and that C. J. HamUlett. a prominent resident of Nashua and the owner of Reed Patehen. was the originator of and the moving spirit in the affair. The action of the board last year was to continue the ca?c against W. It. Cox. the ; driver of Reed Patehen, and Win. O'Neal, i the driver of Lexington, and the secretary j was instructed to bring in action against ! C. J. llaniblett. Yesterday the case was ! taken up and a decision reached that prac i tically affirmed the evidence given last year i by the penalized drivers. The decision was I that C. J. Hamblett be suspended for one | year from this date. Drivers Cox and ? O'Neal were Mispended for ont? year from this date. Cox was one of the most promi nent drivers in the grand circuit this year. Prince of Orange. 2.06%, and othere, having been in his stable. The request of VV. B. McDonald of East Aurora. N. Y.. for removal of suspension for one year.impos d on October 14 by the Lexington (Kv.) association, for riot trying to win with the trotter Gray (Jem at that meeting, was. denied. Plinev K. Burnhnm of Gouverneiir, N. Y., asked for removal of expulsion imposed on December 11', liXfci, which was denied. G. B. Rlnfcer of Indianapolis asked for reinstate ment from expulsion imposed at the same meeting of the board, on December 12, 1900, and this was also denied. C. A. Payne of Philadelphia asked that the mare Lucy B., campaigned by Lee S. Hettrlch of I'ppe-.-o, Md., be identified and her winnings held until the identification was made. The mare proved to be Annie Lawson, 2.20, and the board ejtpelled Het trich and suspended the mare until the un lawful winnings are returned. J. W. Rosemire. who drives the pacer Roy It. on the Sjieedway, got into trouble over; the class to which his horse was eligible to start for money. According to tho testi mony of Rosemire. he bought Roy B. at a public sale in Clricago, and the catalogue stated the horse had a bar of 2.17%. After the sale the consignor told Rosemire that this statement was not true and that the hor*e was eligrble to start In slow classes. The result was that the horse was protested later, and it was found he had a bar of 2.IT'i and was not eligible to the classes in which he had won. Rosemire refunded the money won and the board called the case closed. A. M. Carr, manager for W. A. Clark, jr.. of Montana, protested Sweet Marie aud Briney K. at the Seattle meeting, declaring that both were trained in the same stable and. therefore, starting both hoiaes in the same race was a. violation of the rules. After hearing the evidence of defendants the board decided that the protest was not sustained Thomas B. Armltage of New York lias filed a letter Of complaint watt tho board ot review and asked for a ruling on. the so ' called wind Shield records or performances made where an advance runner is used <-o break atmospheric resistance. All th? records made thh? year where for mer records have been reduced have been made under these conditions. The best rec ord credited to Lou Dillon without the aid of ah- advane? runner to 2Mhk, and the beet record mile for Major Delmar to 2.0*. As a matter of fact, the resolution j? scarcely a part of the business of this board. The question properly belongs to the governing body of the Year Book, and as such may be passed upon by that body be fore the official records are made up for this year. A suggestion has been made that a joint committee representing the National Association, the American Associ ation and the Trotting Register Association pass on the matter. It is generally believed that if this is done the records will not be entirely rejected, but classified by themselves. Should this be the result Cresceus will still head the trotting list, with and Star Pointer the pacing list, with 1.51H4. SALE OF THOROUGHBREDS. Ballyhoo Bey's Reserve Price Too High for Bidders. The chief consignment at the second day of the Fasig-Tipton Company's sale at Lexington, Ky., yesterday was from La Belle stud farm of William C. Whitney, consisting of stallions and brood mares. The noted stallion Ballyhoo Bey. winner of the futurity, was offered but was not sold, as Mr. Whitney had sent in a reserve bid of $10,000. which figure was not raised by any of the buyers at the sale. The top price was brought by Lissafc. the sleven year-old horse by Loyalist?Capability, by Chevron I. lie going to Henry Martin. Ver sailles. Ky.. for $4,100. During the day eighty-eight head were sold for a total of $2il,2>0, an average of $'-'(7. Following were the best sale? of the day: Llfcxnk. br.

Whether the time of which Cresceus is said to have made at Wichita, Kan., on October 1?. will be allowed to stand as a record will be decided by the board of appeals of the American Trotting Association, which met in Chicago yester day. Evidence for George H. Ketcham, owner and driver of Cresceus, and for the South ern Kansas l*air and Carnival Association, under whose auspices the trial was made, was presented to the board. The length of the track was not ques tioned. The point at issue was whether the meeting was regularly conducted under the rules of the association, advertised at least a week before hand, and with at least two class races in addition to the trial against time. Mr. Ketcham's side was unable to produce advertisements, and the board has sent to Wichita to have any published an nouncements mailed to Chicago. The rules provide that no official may act lxth as Jucge and as timer, but the records of the meeting show that S. B. Amldon signed himself jts both. Mr. Amidon, in his statement, said he was in the judges" stand all the afternoon. TWO CRACK JOCKEYS. Redfern and Fuller Have Done Only Fair at Benning This Fall. Arthur Redfern, W. C. Whitney's premier Jockey, will continue to ride at Benning until the end of tiie meeting, when he will go to San Francisco. Redfern has earned to date J35.000. His father, who showed the long list of money paid to his son by hortemen this year, said that this sum would undoubtedly have been increased tU),<KR> but for two accidents, which caused Arthur to take an enforced vacation of two months this season. With ills earnings Redfern has purchased a handsome cottage at Bensonhurst, L. I., an automobile and a small yacht. The re mainder of his money Is in bank. Grover Cleveland Fuller, the Jockey who won all the prominent races this season, worth in the aggregate nearly JfiOO.OeU to the fortunate owners of the winning horses, left here Monday morning for Chicago to visit his parents. He will not return east again ur.ti. early next spring. Fuller wound up his season of work in the saddle in similar style to his opening?by a victory. He began well by winning the first in portant race in New York, the Kxeelsior Handicap, with W. C. Whitney's Black stock. He closed his year of triumph by larding Unmasked winner of the fifth race at Benning last Saturday, sending Frank Vi. rrell and a del* gation of Tammany braves home with many thousands of the bookmakers' money. It is a curious fact that Congressman "Big Tim" Sullivan, Fuller's principal em ployer. has been singularly unfortunate in backing his iockey's mounts. Men In close touch with "Big Tim" say that he has lost hett-ing on Fuller this season. When ever the lad lost it was Tim's fortune to have a bet on him: the days that he won the congressman was either away from the treck or was too disgruntled at his previous ksses to bet anything. Only at rare inter vals has "Big Tim" cashed on him. During the meeting at Benning Fuller has not been vtry successful, but iast Wednesday he rode Meisterslnger to victory, and beat out a $1 ,000 bet which "Big Tim" had on High lander. FAST BOKING MATCH. Hugh McGovern and John Allen Draw * in Six Rounds. For < lean-cut, vigorous, aggressive box lrg, the wind-up between Hughey Mc Govern of New York and Johnny Allen of Philadelphia, at the National Athletic Club, Philadelphia, last night, has been rarely eqtaled. It was a ding-dong affair from end to end, and yet there was never a minute whon the boys were not showing cleverness in one form or the other. Both beys were In splendid shape, aa was shown by the speed they went the route. Mc Govern had a shad* on Allen In the matter of weight, but not enough to give him gJiy advantage. In the matter of generalship McGovern had something on Allen, but the latter about evened that up by his clever ntss at outwork. Allen had the call In the first round. McGovern evidently did not look for Allen to put up such an aggressive bout, and was clcarly carried oft his feet In the first half of the round, when Allen caught him twice with swinging rights on the body. In the clir.ehes McGovern showed bis superior knowledge of the game, and In the break aways he also showed that lie knew more than did Allen. But the latter was always coming to him, and Just before the beli rang landed hard on the side of the Jaw?a punch that plainly rocked Hughey. There was no diminution in the speed of either boy in the second round. It was a esse of give and take, with honors about even. In the third and fourth McGovern got the better of the exclianging, his punches about the body appearing to have more effect than did the blows that Allen landed about the head. Early in the fifth round Allen landed a hard right on Mc ; Govern's body, taking some of the speed out of hitn. Both boys showed a disposition to rough it in this round. McGovern using his elbows to advantage, while Allen kept raising his right, kueo in a way that evoked . i call from Hughcy's corner. The sixth ' ??cund was a clinker. First McGovern would appear to have the better of It. then Allen seemed to be In tho Jead. Toward the close of the round Alton got In a swing ing right on McGovern's Jaw,, and the lat f ter wobbled.

"Ward at His Home at Cornwall, N. Y. The noted oarsman. Joshua A. Ward. died yesterday afternoon at his home in Cornwall. N. Y.. where he had lived many years with his family. Some time ago. while he was visiting at the home of his son-in law, A. P. TUthlll. he had a severe at tack of muscular rheumatism, which was . followed by a stroke of paralysis and a I tit of hiccoughs, and Tuesday his disease developed into pneumonia, which yester day caused his death. Josh Ward was born in Newburgh. N. Y.. on May 11, 18:58. and was a. little over sixty five years old. In 1860 Ward was one of the six-oared crew that won a race of three miles In If* minutes and 37 seconds on Lake yulnslga mond. The great race of October 15, 1839. at Staten Island, where Ward met Hanlon, Daw and Fay, still stands as a record. He rowed In the Major Morten, which was built by his friend, Tltnothj! Donoghue, and at the expense of Benjamin B. Odell. who was then one of the leading spirits in the Newburgh association and who, with Dick Bladen. Billy Edmonston and others of that time, never failed to be sponsors for the Wards In their rowing engagements. Josh won this race, which was five miles. In the remarkable time of 84 minutes and 10 seconds, which ha* never been equaled, although In later years better boats and oars have been used-. After ISflT Ward's principal rowing ca reer was in four and six-oared races. The four-oared crews ot?ao prised ohiefly his brothers?Hank, Charles and GH?with Josh, and ocasionally the younger brother. Ellis, who Is now coach for the University of Pennsylvania. ? Some of the principal ,contests that^ fol lowed were the one in WOTi at New York, when the brothers vanquished the Stevens crew of Poughkeepsle; at Sing Sing, when , they defeated the Biglin crew; at Spring field in 18H7. where for a prize of $1,000 they defeated a picked crew from St. John, N. B.; at Worcester in IMJ8. where they] defeated the slx-oared Harvard crew, with the live Ward brothers and J. I>. Raymond, and the International four-oared race on September 11. 1871. on Saratoga lake. The contestants were the Tyne crew of Eng land, the Coulter-Biglin crew of New York, the Taylor-Winshlp crew of England, the Pittsbury crew and the Stevens crew of Poughkeepsie. The "Ward brothers, with Josh as the manager, won the race, which was at four miles, in 21 minutes and 40 seconds. MEDALS FOB. AUTO BUN. Final Awards to the Best Performers In Endurance Test. A meeting of the executive committee of the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers was Held in New York yes terday, and the award of medals for the recent endurance run from New York to Pittsburg was determined upon. As has been announced, It was decided to give all the cars that reached Pittsburg first-class certificates, the rules being suspended be cause of the extraordinary conditions en countered. Gold medals were to be award ed to the cars that were on schedule time at each city, but there was a question about the award to two cars that were not strict ly on time, but were only slightly late with extenuating circumstances. The decision made yesterday was to Include one of these cars as a medal winner and not the other, the circumstances being different. Those who will get gold medals are: Webb Jay, operator of White, No. 5; Paul Deming, operator of White, No. 6; Percy P. Pierce, operator of Pierce, No. 15; C. L. Sh?ppy, operator of Arrow, No. 14; B. B. Holcomb, operator of Columbia, No. 2; F. B. Stearns, operator of Stearns, No. Hit; E. 'P. Fetch, operator of Packard, No. 10, and George Soules, operator of Toledo, No. 10. FARMERS FLAYED WELL. Maryland Agricultural Boys Had Good Season, on Gridiron. The Agricultural Collego foot ball team of the past season was the strongest for several years. It defeated both the Colum bian University of tills city and the Mary land University, shutting out both. The defeat by St. John's was due, in a large ] measure, to the muddy Iteld. a part of the game having been played In several Inches of water. The game* against Delaware Col lege. in which Delnwtute won, 17 to 0. was hardly a fair test ?>f the Agricultural strength, as Watts, captain of the team, was out of the game with' a sprained leg" ami several others of the best players were so weakened by previous injuries that they were replaced early Id thS(. game by inex perienced scrubs.

Reach. The former president of the Phila delphia club wrinkled his forehead thought fully before replying. A host of wonderful efforts must have flitted before his memory, for Reach, as player and spectator, has been seeing great plays for four decades, and has valued them with the eye of an expert "The one that to my mind outranked all i the others," the reply came slowly, " L made by the man whom I consider the star of all the outfielders." "And that was?" "Poor Jimmy Fogarty. Fogarty played In this city from the early eighties to the time of his death, somewhere along about 18ft t. "The fans of today may boast their Beau ir.onts, Clarkes. Held ricks. Sheckards, Thomases, Hansels. Joneses. These men don't compare with the notable bunch of outfield stars which was shining in those days. "Fogarty, McAleer. Johnson, Grlffln. Welch, just to mention a few, were mar vels of individual skill. "I preferred Fogarty because he was steady as well as brilliant. He never muff ed a fly ball, he never misjudged one In or der to make a circus catch. He covered an immense amount -jf ground and was a great thrower. "One of Fogarty's great specialties used to be running in on short liners. The field ers today scarcely ever attempt this dan gerous play. They prefer to play the ball safely and give a batsman one base, rather than to take a chance on losing the ball and letting the hitter get around to third. "But Fogarty used to come in at full speed on hits back of second, throw him self headfirst, and while prostrate scoop the sphere before it hit the ground. Some of his feats of this kind defy description. "The catch that I consider his greatest was not made on that kind of a ball, though; it was on a long, high hit to right center. "The Phillies were playing Chicago, and an overflow crowd lined the fence tliirty deep. "The home team was one run to the good it was the last half of the ninth; Chicago had men on second and third, and two men were down. A hit meant victory. "Anson was at the bat. He picked out a high outshoot and sent the ball soaring toward the fence. Fogarty. who was a per fect juflge of a fly, started the instant it was hit. Ho knew exactly where it would fall. He knew it would take him right Into the crowd, but he never hesitated. "Ground rules wore not as strict then as now. A hit in the crowd was good for two bases if not caught, but if the fielder got through and pulled it down the bHtsrmn was out. "I was sitting in the upper pavilion. I could plainly see Fogarty from tlie time he raced into the crowd. The men tried to scatter for hirr., but were so closely banked that they merely tumbled over each other i and still further Moeked the way. "Running at top speed. Jimmy threaded his way through the human obstacles. "His white aniform showed me his path way. He was watching the ball, but be had an eye on the crowd, lest he bump into some one and fall. A lemonade voider got in his way, but he seat him crashing, glasses and all. "Fogarty leaped over him like a hurdler, and. without slackening his pace. j\imped into the air and took the ball off the fence. Still keeping his wits, he held the ball high In the air, so that the umpire could see that it had not been dropped. He was carried from the field in triumph." Carrolls Defeat Y. M. C. A. In one of the best played games of the season, and before one of the largest gatherings that ever witnessed a basket ball game, the Carroll Institute team last night defeated the Y. M. C. A. team in the Carroll gym by 12 to 9. Although the Y. M. C. A.'s were given many chances to tie the score on Mr. Mcriarity's decisions, they were weak at the baskets.
