some terrific work with the stick, has
come to the front as the leading batsman
of the te;im. having played in twenty-nine

White Sox has been feeding fat an ancient
grudge. Griffith is alleged to have
predicted last winter that Walsh would not
be as good this season as last because no
spitball pitcher couVd come right back

the New Yorks not long ago and shut them
out without a hit he was actuated by a desire
to convince Griff of the error of his
reported prophecy.
Went Up Close Behind Bat Before Nat
Hicks Bid.
"Nat Hicks was a great catcher for the
short period that he stood in the limelight
of public opinion, but the press of the
country is away off in giving him credit
as the 'original' up-behlnd-the-bat man,"
said the veteran catcher Douglas Allison
tn ? Star reDresentatlVe yesterday.
"Not that I wish to claim any such record,"
said Allison, "for after all it does
not carry any great weight or glory, but
just the same I think figures will prove
that I was among the first, If not the first,
of any of the backstops to attempt that
trick that was the mystery of the game.
"X was a young mechanic at the time,
following the stonecutter's trade In that
sport-loving section of Philadelphia known
as Manayunk. and while catching with the j
'Mechanics' of that place I began to be- ,
lleve It possible to get close up to the
bat, so as to catch the ball, and thereby
prevent so many runners from stealing
second and third bases. I put my theory
in action, and that was way back in I860.

to allow the pitcher to throw them
wide, but gradually worked over behind
the batter, so as to fool him as well as
the base runner.
"My success in this style of play was remarkable,
and naturally the talk of the
place, until our games began to draw
crowds simply because 'Allison was behind
the bat.' This is not egotism, but the
fact, and niy method soon ha,d lots of Imitators
in and around Philadelphia, but,
strange to say, few made success of it.
"in 1SR7 T nlaved with the Gearys, the
leading amateur team of Philadelphia, and
there attracted the attention of that greatest
of all base ball generals?Harry Wright.
He induced me to go with him to become a
member of the most famous American base
ball team since the game began, the Red
Stockings of Cincinnati, where I continued
up under the bat with plenty of success.
"Now my friend Nat Hicks did not
break into the game at all until 1870, and
could not nave sianeu 11 ui i yiay iur kiuch
so many newspapers have been giving him
credit,, and while disliking to cloud their
stories, it seems right to correct the popular
impression on this important epoch in
the history of base ball."
Allison talks amusingly of the many mishaps
that came his way while up under
the bat?how often he had been "put to
sleep" by catching foul tips in the face by
mistake, or winded by Asa Brainard's inshoots
landing in his solar plexus. His
hands give testimony, for, as he says,
"they are monuments for work well done."
They are but a mass of knotted and twisted
Joints, showing what a torture the
catcher of those days had to endure without
any protection whatever.
Allison also said that Charley Snyder
was another who had made a success of
catching behind the bat before the advent

who graduated from the local Creightons.
Allison is now a clerk In the Post Office
Department, still in good health, and is
never so happy as when out with the
youngsters of the Post Office Department

chances, and is one of the few who
are hopeful, minus the knocking.

NEW YORK, June 3.?Although the racing
season Is hardly more than well begun.
It seems safe to predict that James
R. Keene, vice chairman of the Jockey
Club, will again head the list of winning
owners for 1!H)T. as he did a year ago. A
few years ago it was quite unusual for a
single owner to reach the $100,0U0 mark for
a season, but with even a fair amount of
luck Mr. Keene is quite likely to win
$"J<X>,000 or more before the curtain is rung
down at Aqueduct next November. His
horses have earned to date something over
j thanks largely to the victories of
Superman in the Brooklyn handicap. Peter
Pan in the Kelmont stakes and Colin in the
I National Stallion stakes.
Mr. Keene has a strong stable this year,
and in all probability many other rich fixtures
will be won by horses bearing the
famous colors, white, blue spots. Peter
Pan and Superman are candidates for the
high honor of belr.g the champion threeyear-old
of 11X17. Salvidere. the champion
twn-vear-nld Inst venr- V.lr-rfirm^pT winner
of the Futurity; Kentucky Beau and Fountainblue
are about the only three-year-olds
which have not started this year that are
likely to deprive the Keene horses of the
high place they now hold. It Is too early,
perhaps, to pass judgment, but it is safe
to say that Peter Pan and Superman
will not be far from the top when the last
race is run.
There is hardly a question that Mr.
Keene will be quite a* strong, if not
stronger, with his two-year-olds. Colin,
Sepoy and Masque are probably three of
the best youngsters shown so far this season,
and in Colin Mr. Keene has a colt
that should make amends in part for
the loss of Commando, not only as a great
race horse, but as a worthy successor in
the stud to perpetuate the blood of Commando
and of Domino, the sire of Commando.
Colin has a slight intirmity,
which may or may not prove serious. If
he trains on. however, it looks as if Mr.
Keena had another great horse to compensate
him for the loss in Quick succession
of Domino, Commando and Sysonby,
than which few, if any, greater horses have
ever raced on the American turf. Colin
has speed and courage, to say nothing of
wellnigh perfect action, to recommend him,
while In conformation he is of the highest
type of the thoroughbred.
That the death of Commando was a distinct
loss to the American turf has been
emphasized to a marked degree in the last
two weeks by the sterling performances of
Superman, Peter Pan and Coiin. Peter
Pan more than redeemed himself for his
defeats by Frank Gill and Dlnna Ken in
winning the rich and historic Belmont
stakes on Memorial day. He not only
showed all the great speed for which he Is
famous, but dispelled the illusion that he
was lacking in courage and would not go
a route. He la the kind of horse which
seems to need plenty of work and plenty
of racing, and with stake weight up his
equal may not be seen this year.
There have been so many upsets and
surprises at Belmont Park that racegoers
will welcome the change to Gravesend this
week for the second spring meeting of the
Brooklyn Jockey Club. There may or may
not be any change for the better, but the
hope Is there, and that counts for something.
The big parklike inclosure at Belmont
Park has a distinct attraction for
many, but little old Gravesend appeals to
those who like to see the horses over every
foot of the journey, which is Impossible at
Belmont Park. The Eclipse stakes, for
two-year-olda, with $3,000 added, and the
Grand National steeplechase, In which T.
S. Martin and Good and Plenty may meet
Qo-oln tWn fofltnr?iCi nf tho / ! rta i n cr
days at Belmont Park. Colin is among
those eligible for the Eclipse stakes, which
is at five and one-half furlongs.
The Westminster handicap, of $10,000, at
one mile and a quarter, will be the attraction
for the opening day at Gravesend
on Thursday. In many respects it will be i
a renewal of the Brooklyn Handicap, and I
a strong Held should go to the post. Among
those likely to start are Dandelion, Tokalon,
Flip Flap, McCarter, Go Between. Oxford,
W. H. Carey. Etiion. Blandy and Coy Maid.
Superman, the Brooklyn Handicap winner, 1
is not eligible, and Mr. Keene will have* to
depend on Philander, Kuroki or Gtetna
Green if his colors are represented. The
Great American stakes, for two-year-olds;
tha Greater New York steeplechase and
the Broadway stakes, for three-year-olds,
are on the card for Saturday. Electioneer,
last year's Futurity winner, nifty make his
debut as a three-year-old in the Broadway
stakes, while others which are likely to
face the starter are McCarter. Ethon, Montgomery,
Zambesi, Frank Gill, Kentucky
Beau and Dinna Ken.
The most delighted body of athletics at
the recent American Henley regatta at
Philadelphia was the Yale junior eight,
which, after winning the race for second
eights, rowed a second time and defeated
the supposedly invincible Cornell juniors.
It was at first announced that Yale would
not row against Cornell, and some rather
uncomplimentary things were said and
mougm aDout me t-iis. tsut Yale's victory
In the first race put an entirely different
complexion on things. The Ells wanted to
row again, and although this was in no way
necessary. In deference to Cornell and
Pennsylvania. Julian Curtiss, the Yale adviser,
asked permission of Judge Irvine of
Cornell and Wm. Innes Forbes of Pennsylvania,
to enter this race also. Both of the

and left Pennsylvania and Georgetown
far In the rear.
The Yale victory will do Cornell quite as
much good as it will Tale. The opinion has
been taking root too fast at Ithaca that
Cornell crews are unbeatable, so this upset
ought to do Courtney's men a world of
Next to the surprise of Yale's fine work,
the experts were much disturbed by the
very poor work of the I'nlversity of Pennsylvania
'varsity eight. The Quakers were
matched against the New York Athletic
Club, the Bachelors' Boat Club of Philadelphia.
and the Nassau Boat Club of New
York. The Red and Blue oarsmen have
been at work since the middle of January,
and have had twice as much work on the
water as any of the other crews. Yet the
collegians had to take third place behind
the N. Y. A. C. and tlje Bachelors. What
makes the defeat of Penn all the more gall
ing is me ract that the Bachelor eight is
composed almost entirely of former Pennsylvania
oarsmen, who are keeping up their
rowing solely for pleasure. The graduates
had their successors beaten oft from the
start. Now the question is being asked:
Are Penn's crews deteriorating? At any
rate, the Quakers will have to develop
pretty fast to make as good a showing at
Poughkeepsie as thev did a year ago.
Next year rowing will be installed at
Princeton, and the Tigers will undoubtedly
be out with one or two crews. Their flr.1t
racing shell will probably be launched in
the Schuylkill. The American regatta, being
held on Saturday, will not interfere in any
way with the Tigers' scholastic work, and
on Uils account an extra good entry Is ex
pecieu irom ligeriown. i ne orancning out
of Annapolis will probably result in sending
a crew up from the navy. Coach Rice
of Columbia was at the regatta, and as the
new coach Is an'advocate of lots of competition,
it is not unlikely that Columbia
will have an eight on hand next year.
Description of the Seneca, Built by
BRISTOL. R. I., June 3.?Seneca, the
Canadian cup defender, built by the Herreshoff
Manufacturing Company, Is named
after the once powerful tribe of Iroquois
Indians which roamed the great fresh
water lakes in their canoes. This is Designer
Nat Herreshoflfs first trial at a boat
for cup defense under fresh water conditions.
The Seneca is of the true Herreshoff
type of racer, and no attempt has been
made to conceal her dimensions or lines
from the public. Regarding her shape or
sailing lines underneath, there are only one
or iwo ieaiur's which are uepari ultra uoiu
the Herreshoff productions in the small
classes of a year ago. and these are In
the after and forward ends.
The crew of the Seneca will number seven,
all victorious racing men, including Mabbit,
the man who came to the front so
prominently in the event of two years ago,
when the Rochester Yacht Club took the
Canadian cup. There are three candidates
for challengers, which are being built In
different places to meet the St-neca. These
include two coming from Kurope and another.
the Crusader, designed by Fife, the
noted Scotch designer, which Is being put
together in Canada. The dimensions of the
Seneca are: Length over all, 4G feet; waterline
length, 30 feet; breadth of beam, i) feet
ti inches, and a draught of 7 feet. The new
sloop will have a sail area of 1,150 square
feet. ^
I .isntry ior .Diamond scuns may jje xvcturned
by Henley Stewards.
NEW YORK, June 3.?If it is true, as reported,
that the Henley stewards have decided
to return the entry of Constance S.
TitU3 for the diamond sculls on the groun i
that ills expenses are to be paid by contributions
a great injustice will be done to
the American champion. Although entered
formally by the Nonpareil Rowing Club of
Harlem, Titus was to pay his own expenses
to England, and not a penny of it
was to come from other individual or organization.
Titus is a genuine amateur.
His only fault Is that he refuses to compete
against Frank Greer, the former champion,
who is anxious to meet him afloat. But
that his entry should be turned back for
thnt nr for the mistaken idea that It is ex
penses were to be defrayed by club contributions
is a mockery upon the spirit of
fair play.
It is true that the entry of Titus is not
indorsed by either the National Association
uf Amateur Oarsmen or the American
Rowing Association, the chief ruling bodies
of this country, but then West of Philadelphia
went to Henley last year without official
indorsement other than the I'ndino
Boat Club of the Quaker city, and if West,
why not Titus?
An Endurance Contest This Season
Cnnmc A Pellrorl
j NEW YORK, June 3.?That there will be
I an endurance contest in conjunction with
the annual motor cycle meet this year
seems assured. So many changes have been
made in motor cycle construction and so
many new aspirants are in the field that a
contest js strongly indicated. Under the
rules, the course must not lie less than
250 miles, and whether Baltimore or Providence
is chosen as the objective point, the
run, taking New York as the starting point,
would be through an interesting country. A
' wide detour would be required to cover
enough distance if the run goes to ProvlI
dence. The first annual endurance contest

Capt. Folwell of Pennsylvania Calls It
a Farce.
PHILADELPHIA. June 3.?Capt. Rot>ert
C. Folwell of the University of Pennsylvania
foot ball team In an interview dealing
with the foot ball prospects and situation
at Pennsylvania admitted that the Quakers
and Yale are trying to get together in a
game next fall upon one of the open dates
of the season. There Is little doubt that
Pennsylvania is anxious for this contest
and that Vale men in Philadelphia, almost
to a man, would like to see it played. Folwell
"My only regret is the scarcity of big
games. Of course, we will play Michigan
