NKW ORL.EANS, March 6.?Eastern
l.orse owners reallxed yesterday for the
llrst time how great la Kam a Horn. That
g.jod horse carried 130 pounds in the liandi
i ?p at the Crescent City Jockey Club s
course. and over a track that was dead and
hodden beat a field of fast horses.
His performance was much better than
t' at of his stablemate, Phil Finch, when
1st* carried 138 pounds to victory on Satur
day Whereas the latter had only two poor
opponents. Ram's Horn was opposed by
Huch good horses as Ben Hodder. a derby
candidate; goldsmith, James Roddick and
Don't Ask Me. To each one of these horses
Ram's Horn gave away many pounds.
Ram's Horn was nuide a top-heavy favor
lie at - to 5 In the early betting. Even
these small odds were regarded as profit
able by the big plungers, an.! they backed
lilin so heavily that the price was eventual
ly cut to 1 to 3. Ben Hodder was second
favorite. These two horses carried the
tmlk of the money.
The race was practically assured to Ram s

CHICAGO. March 0.?Permission was
granted yesterday by the board of stew
ards of the Western Jockey Club at ItB
monthly met ting to the New Louisiana
Jockey Club at New Orleans to extend us
lace meeting from March 24 for an Indeil
nit< number of days. The extension is to
meet the competition of the City Park
track, which Is governed by the American
Turf Association.
Herman Radtke. now riding at Hot
Springs, Ark., who was reinstated pro
visionally by the stewards some time
war restored to good standing. Among
the large list of others restored to good
standing were J. C. Yeager and T. J. Hllde
brand P.nd their horses.
NEW ORLEANS, March Brouthers,
the Southern League crack third baseman,
who has been touted as a likely successor
to Lave Cross, will have to work hard to
get that position If the work of Oldrlng and
Knight can be taken as a criterion In yes
terday's practice. Oldrlng was tried out at
third In the morning practice, and although
new at the position, he fielded In a way to
warm the cockles of Connie's heart. He
also possesses marked ability as a stickler,
and as he has a strong wing, he has all the
requirements needful to make a first-class
ball player.
Jack Knight Is a much improved fielder
over last year, and as he has demonstrated
his sticking ability, he is also a likely look
ing man for that third end corner of the
diamond. Knight was filling that position
In the afternoon's practice, and as he has
succeeded In working out the soreness in'
his arms, he looks good at present.
Third base is about the only position In
doubt on the team, as the rest of the Infield
Is ably taken care of by Monte Cross, Mur
phy and Da\ls. There is hardly any like
lihood of any of the younger lnflelders re
placing the veterans.
The weather was ideal for base ball and
Connie had everybody on the way to Ath
letic Park long before old Sol had much
of a chance to show his smiling f;ce. Only
light work was Indulged In morning and
afternoon, but enough of It was taken to
give every player a good chance to work
all soreness out of the men which came as
an aftermath of Sunday's game. The men
are gradually getting accustomed to speedy
pitching, and from now on the three pitch
ers here with the team will mix up their
delivery with speedy ones and a mixture of
Although rather light. Byrnes, the catcher
secured from the Oakland Pacific Coast
League club, shows promising form, and it
looks as if the champions are going to have
a good understudy to Shreck and Powers
tills season. He is a gingery ball player,
and such a man as to keep every player
moving. While far from being a slugger,
he meets the ball hard and timely and
stands well at the plate.
MKMFHIS, March <>.? Bresnahan and Mc
Uaun of the New York National League
team appeared In 190(5 uniforms during
practice yesterday and another startling
innovation can be scored for McGraw.
Across the front of the shirt appears In
large letters, "World's Champions." This
might have been expected, but the real in
novation is In the makeup of the shirts,
i They are without collars.
Around the necks the shirts are made like
j pajamas. The band Is made sufficiently
; loose to allow the roll of a thin jersey to
top it off. It is rather fancy and colle
giate. but it gives the champions a natty
look, and that was what McGraw sought,
lie Ims always maintained that collars
were useless on base ball shirts, and his
; idea is likely to become popular.
The only player to suffer will be Frank
Bowerman, who does not wear an under
shirt on the base ball field. Frank says
lie never wore an undershirt but once, and
then lie caught cold.
McGann and Bresnahan were the cyno
sure of all eyes when they appeared on
the field, and the natives are expected to
Hock to the grounds in large numbers dur
ing the < Hants' stay here to see the men
wearing the shirts bearing the "World's
Champions" advertisement.
McGraw is a "show-off" in the opinion of
base ball followers here, who say that the
title of "World's Champions" Is entirely too
general and does not represent New York.
Signs With Outlaws.
W1LKESBARRE. Pa.. March 6?First
Baseman Arthur Brown, who played with
the Wllkesbarre team of the New York
State League last season, has signed with
Johnstown of the Trl-State League. He
was drafted by Newark at the close of last
?season, but as Newark would not pay him
as high a salary as Johnstown offered he
decided to play with the latter club. He
led the first basemen of the New York
Slate League In hitting and fielding, al
though it was his l'rst professional season.
Ball Player Stabbed.
CINCINNATI, March 0.?Heine I'eltz, for
I merly of the Cincinnati base ball club, and
j now under contract to play In Pittsburg,
| lias been stabbed by a Jealous woman. The
knife Just grazed his heart.
There is much mystery about the affair,
and on Saturday it was announced that he
was suffering with pleurisy and that he
would be well in a week and able to take
his place with the team in a month. Now
he may never play ball again.
It is stated that the stabbing occurred
Thursday night about 8 o'clock, and the
woman who did the stabbing lay In wait
for him and plunged the dagger into his
breast as lie was entering the house.

Frank Isbell has signed a Chicago con
tract. He is one of the two original White
Sox who have been retained. Patterson la
the other.
Vmpire Jack Sheridan expresses regret
that changes In the rules were not made to
increase batting, and thinks the public will
tire of low-score games before the end of
another season. ....
Oldrlng. a candidate for third base on the
Athletics, has seen big league service be
fore. He received a brief trial with the
Highlanders at the close of last season.
The three best billiard players that base
ball ever turned out were Walter Wllmot,
Anson and Dr. Harley Parker. But kee*>

the cue. and ran 48 recently at straight rail.
The Boston Americans are loath to lose
such a consistent sticker as Bill Clay, who
fl<t>ped to the York team. The defection of
Olay means that Selbach, Stahl and Free
man will take care of the outfield portions.
Detroit wants First Baseman Jonfs of
the Browns. Lindsay did excellent work
for the Tigers last season, but he is a
youngster, and It Is feared that he may
slump next season.
After all his talk about never returning to
Chicago, "Nig" Smith slowly and delib
erately crawled. Into the White Sox band
wagon. Thus tt Is ever. ?
Jimmy McAleer, one of the sponsors of
Evans the new American League umpire,
says: "Evans will make good or I will
eat my hat." McAleer said the same thing
last year regarding the winning ot the pen
nant by his St. Loute Americans. He
didn't make good, however.

Tom Jordan, the big first baseman of the
Baltimore Eastern League team, who batted
.312 and fielded .HSt! last year, has signed to
play with the Superbas during the coming
season. Jordan played 130 games with the
Orioles In 11)05. He faced the- Eastern
League pitchers 41?3 times and made JM3
base hits for an average of .312. He regis
tered 2tJ two baggers, 10 triples and 1 home
run, besides scoring 77 runs, a good per
formance. His stolen base record was 22.
In fielding the big first baseman made only
10 errors in 1,359 chances, having 1,3?H> put
outs and .*'>4 assists.
Louis Criger of the Boston Americans,
probably the best catcher in the profession,
is seriously ill at Hot Springs and may
never play ball again. Spinal trouble. It Is
said. Is the cause of his present condition,
which, according to players who have seen
him at the Springs, Is pitiable. Criger has
wasted away so that he weighs a trifle more
than 120 pounds and can hardly move
around. The physicians who are attending
him ray that he may recover, but from
present Indications it will be out of the
question for him to don a Boston uniform
for a long time to come. If ever again. Crl
ger's loss means that, the Bostons will be
hard up for an experienced backstop to
handle such pitchers as Young, Dlnee-n,
Gltson and Tannehill, as Charley Farrell,
the veterah, has just gone into the hotel
business at Marlboro, Mass., and says he
Is through with base ball.
CHICAGO, III.. March 6?Owing to the

something to say in the politics of the con

pion of l!H?o, and known personally to every
bowler in the country, Is expected in Chi
cago late tonight or early tomorrow can

assured of a hearty welcome here.
Chicago is sorely disappointed by New
York's miserable showing of three teams,
but the lato mail may considerably increase
this. In any event it was expected New
York would come in with at least a dozen
teams. Peoria and other strong western
centers will be with Chicago In whatever
course is determined upon.

NEW HAVEN, March ft?Tom Shevlin,
the foot ball star, and Chester Norton, a
heavy-welght'wrestler at Tale, who has con
siderable knowledge of boxing, come to
gether for a four-round go In the Tale gym
nasium recently, and. according to the story
which has just leaked out about the meeting,
it was a very lively scrap. Frank Erne, the
ex-prise fighter, who has a class of thirty
or forty Tale men in boxing, has Norton
under his tutelage, and Norton has been
looked upon as Erne's star pupil. Shevlin
had Just been having a few minutes' ex
ercise in boxing with Prof. Dole, Tale s i
boxing Instructor, when tn sauntered Nor.- I
ton. Then came the report to Shevlin that i
Norton would like to meet him for a round
or two. and it was said that Shevlin was
very anxious to accommodate him. Shev
lin has been boxing practically ever since
he cume to Yale, and once he put on the
gloves with Jim Corbett in the Yale KJ'ni
nnsium. and that fistic star had no sort
snap with the Yale lad.
Norton proved himself no slouch or a
boxer, although the spectators were satis
fied that he was not in Shevlln's c.ass It
was said that Shevlin put in one blow that
sent Norton to the fioor. although Norton s
friends said the fall was due to a misstep.
Norton quickly got back on his feet and
srciied into Shevlin, apparently little mind
ing the blow that sent him to the ground
Shevlin would not discuss the particular
of the scrap, except to say that he had a
! little "go" with Nortun. The latter, ho
said, was desirous of putting the gleves
on with him. and he wasn't running away
from such an opening. "Did you knock
him out?" Shevlin was asked.
"No," was the reply. "He quit because
he was tired."
The Columbia Athletic Club having re
cently won the club relay championship or
the south by winning several two-mile and
one-mile relay races both in Baltimore and
Washington, is now going alter bigger

championship of the eouth, has challenged
the University of Virginia and George
Washington University to either one or

teams refusing to meet the club champions
an effort will be made to get Johns Hip

As the District League season is drawing
near the end it is a noticeable fact that
while the "Fats" have a good lead over the
"Saengers" in number of games won the
latter have quite a margin in total number
of pins over the former, which large lead
has been gained on the "Saengers' " home
alleys. Perhaps a fairer test would be to
take the number of games each club has
played away from home?which Is twenty
four?and by so doing the official records
show that the "Fats" have a total of 22,201
pins, or an average of C25, while the "Saen
gers" " total is 21,137, or an average of tWJl,
which figures up a lead of over l.tKX) pins
the "Fat:J" have over the "Saengers." The
"Fats" seem to be "It" when it comes to
bowling on foreign alleys.
Had Harlow made the second strike in

In the second game of the above match

NEW YORK, March 0?Members of the
executive committee in charge of the Amer
ican Olympic athletic: team met at the Wal
dorf-Astoria Hotel last night and selected
six additional competitors to represent the
United Slates in the world's championship
gaimes in Athens next May. Those present
at the meeting were Julian W. Curttss. G.
T. Kirby, John B. McCabe, Dr. L. H.
Gullck and D. W. Botassi, the Greek consul.
Athletes whom the committee decided
upon last night to send abroad, in addition
to those selected a week ago, are F. R.
Moulton of the Kansas City (Mo.) Athletic
Association; Michael Spring and M. J.
Sheridan of the Pastime Athletic Club;
Charles J. Bacon and Harvey Colin of the
Irish-American Athletic Association and
Ellery H. Clark of the Boston Athletic As
Sheridan, who is the American all-around
champion, was under suspension by the
/vmaleur Athletic Association, and as his
name did not appear on the list of those
from which the others were first chosen, a
cry of unfairness was raised in certain
quarters. The selection of the suspended
champion, who was yesterday reinstated,
now Insures harmony over the linai make
up o.f the Yankee team.
Moulton will compete in the four hundred
meter race, Cohn and Spring in the lung
distance runs and Marathon race, Sheridan
and Clark In the all around championship
and Pentathllum race, and Bacon in the
eight hundred meter race. M. P. Halpln of
the New York Athletic Club was selected
as manager of the team.
It was decided that members of the team
will wear a complete white uniform, with
quarter sleeves and a small American flag
or an American shield on the shirt front.
No corapetitor will be permitted to wear
ills club embleims, as the team Is a dis
tinctly American team. In matters of com
petition and all details relating thereto
James E. Sullivan, secretary of the Ameri
can committee, will be tn charge, and his
'decisions shall be final. Mr. Sullivan will
mail the entries of the American team to
the Olympic management today.
The Yankees will sail for Europe on
March 31. and will arrive in Athens April

Comprehensive Report on Conditions
by Charles M. Pepper to the De
partment of Commerce.
A comprehensive report of trade condi
tions in Mexico Ins just been submitted to
tho Department of Commerce and 1 Jibor
by Charles SI. Pepper apecial agent, who
has devoted several months to a study of
the subject. In a letter, to Secretary Met
calf. transmitting the report Mr. Pepper
declares that the nature of the Mexican
market for American products is all-em
bracing. He refers to the present financial
stability of Mexico, and says that Invest
ments of I'nited States capital are over
flowing from the railroads and the mining
industry into other lines, and in this con
nection the statement Is made that the di
rect returns on the capita! which has gone
Into railways and similar large enterprises
can hereafter be calculated with certainty
because of the llxed valuation given to tho
currency of the country. The indirect re
turns from the sale of goods that are the
product and manufacture of the I'nited
States, he maintains, however, are not so
easily determined, but he says they can be
made greater.
During the year 1905 I'nited States ex
ports to Mexico equaled 57 per cent of the
total, but he expresses the opinion that
they should be at least 75 per cent. Mr.
Pepper says that as regards exports from
Mexico to the United States they ha.ve been
growing rapidly, having increased in ten
years 155 per cent.
Importations Must Continue.
In describing the protective principle of
the new Mexican tariff, which went into
effect in September, 1905, Mr. Pepper an
alyxes the native industries. While some
of these, such as the cotton mills, have
been very successful, and while the enter
prises which are based on water power
through the transmission of electrical en
ergy have an assured future, nevertheless
the conclusion Is drawn that Mexico will be
many years in reaching the point where her
home industries will measurably supply the
home demand. The lack of general distri
bution of fuel and the difficulty With which
the peon population is evolved Into artisans
is described as one reason for the slow
growth of native manufacturing. In con
sequence importation of goods from abroad
must continue very large. In the making
of Iron and steel, notwithstanding the fine
plai.ts erected and the aid extended by the
government, there has be^n little progress
toward meeting the needs of the market.
After discussing the various railway proj
ects of Mexico and the progress being made
on interoceanlc lines Mr. Pepper devotes
considerable space to the nature of in
quiries for trade which come from the
I'nited States and which are said to be so
numerous as to overwhelm the consuls and
Hints to Exporters.
Causes of the failure to secure more of
the commerce are^explained In detail. Ac
cording to Mr. Pepper, they are: Indifference
to customs regulations, bad packing, the
refusal to give the credits which are de
manded by Mexican houses and the lack
of deliberate and thorough commercial
drumming by traveling agents who under
stand the Spanish language and who will
adapt themselves to the peculiarities of the
native trade. Directions are given for
overcoming the deficiencies in all these
matters. Respecting the need of deliberate
commercial drumming, the observation Is
made that the Mexican business men will
not look at samples on the run or give or
ders at a gallop.
Particular attention Is called to the fact
that the Mexican tariff is levied by weight,
according to the metric system, and that
the duties are specific. The report says
that there Is nn unusually good field for
the sale of American furniture in Mexico,
but that Indifference in resard to packing
and to complying with the customs regula
tions up to this time has limited it.
The steady Immigration to Mexico. Mr.
Pepper points out, will hav e l m ?5P3SJJI
commercial advantages for the United
States. Suggestions are made regarding
the precautions which should be taken by
land buyers, and the sources ?om whteh
trustworthy Information may be obtained
are indicated. He declares that both trop
ical and temperate agriculture are said to
be inviting Adds in Mexico for American
settlers, but he sounds a note of warning
., jnet the shares of plantation compa
res which? he says, are exploited only for
the sake of selling stock
Financial Stability of the Republic.
In closing his report, Mr. Pepper says:
"A review of the trade conditions in
Mexico shows that the financial stability
of the republic has been established beyond
all question. It indicate* a further inflow
of foreign capital with fresh mining de
velopment and renewed railroad building.
