Brers visited President Murphy at his
home Tuesday night, and was in conference
with the executive for several hours.
When he emerged from the owner's resi- ,
dence it was agreed that the second (

Bvers wiil assume the managerial
duties of the club immediately ;.fter he ,

President Garry Herrmann of the Reds, 1
and a meeting probably will take place
this week. Herrmann is scheduled to

for an exchange of players. President
Murphy is willir/g to be fair with the
shortstop and has promised him to do all
he can to switch the deal. Evers will
take a hard in it. as it will be up to him
to say which of Herrmann's men he

Rest Before Big Game
With Indians.
l'he Georgetown foot ball team had its
lal scrimmage yesterday afternoon in
eparation for the game with the In-1
ans Saturday. Moriarty, Dunn and
aeinchild were excused from the scrimage
on account of injuries, but this
ill by 110 means keep the men out of
e game Saturday. It seems that Moirty
injured his knee in the scrimmage
tesday, and it gave him a great deal
pain ail day yesterday, so that the
aches decided that it was beat to rest
m up for the big game, because it is
o late now to take any chances with
e cripples.
t is doubtful if the Blue and Gray was
er represented by any stronger line
an the one which will be on the Held

iach Bennis worked with the line yestery
it is evident that he intends to use
;tritz in the contest at center Saturv.

Although it rained slightly during the

line was given the hardest workout that
it has received during the season. It
was practically decided on yesterday that
the team to start the big game Saturday
will be Donnelly, right end; Capt.

guard; Ritch, center: Moriarty, left
guard; Rheinchild, left tackle; Derby, left
end; Costello, quarterback; Murray, right

Show of Field.
LAl'RBL, Md.. October 24.?Coming
down the home stretch like a wobbly engine
making up lost time, splashing mud
on either side and back of him instead
of steam, J. YV. Schorr's good three-yearold,
Hamilton, won the Anre Arundel
selling stake at l^aurel yesterday from a
field of severt" starters. The distance was
a mile and a lurlong and the net winning
was just $15 shy of *1,.V;?.
The son of Bannockburn was in the
lead, but relinquished it to G. M. Miller
round the first turn. It was only for a
short distance that he took the mud and
then he went to the front again to maintain
it to the coveted goal. On the backstretch
Nonpareil, a rank outsider, continually
challenged Hamilton, but never
could overtake him. When this pair
reached the six-furlong pole it became
evident to the spectators they would
firJsh as they were running, providing, of
course. Nonpareil did not do the unexpected.
In the meantime backers of Jacquelina.
one of the Bedwell horses, were looking for
this black mare to begin her spurt rounding
the far turn, but they looked in vain,
for she was unequal to the occasion and
could not improve her position. In some
of her previous races it generally took
about half a mile before she could start
to pull down the leader.
The Bedwell entry ruled favorite by a
slight margin, although there was a
heavy play on the Schorr horses.
Hamilton won ty a length from Nonpareil.
with War Horn in show position,
four lengths behind.
Thirteen horses were entered, but six
of them?Superstitition. Bounder. Cliff
Edge, Col. Ashmeade, Oakhurst and
Amalfi? were scratched.
The racing was spirited, and favorites
carried off three of the events, despite
the sloppy track. They were BrynarV.
in the first; Rosseaux, in the third, and
Yorkshire Boy. in the last.
Hamilton was a second choice, and so
was Springmass in the fifth contest. And,

her held. It has been some time since a
horse going over the long distance has
run away from the held so easily as did
this chestnut filly. At one time she was
eight lengths in the lear. and she might
have been more at the finish had she been
ridden out by the Jockey.
In the running of the opening dafli.
which was at five furlongs for two-yearolds,
Tommy Burns' Mama Johnson fell at
the furlong pole. Jockey Ford escaped
injury and accepted a mount later in tife
day.
The only real upset during the day was
the winning of Roseitaire in the second
race, fchich was for two-year-olds and at
the same distance as the first. This filly
got the jump on her colleagues in the
early running and was not challenged In
the stretch. Chuckles got up in the last
furlong and secured a mortgage on place
position, finishing a length and a half
back of the winner. Insurance Man. the
favorite, ran a good race, once started,
and came from next to last to show several
lengths back of Chuckles.
In the third event there were supposed
to be a number of real mudders. Ros,
seaux lived up to his past performances
on a heavy track, and by being quick to
get in front won by a length from Flying
Yankee, on whom there was a false price.
He was three lengths in front of Ochre
Court, who won the show place by beating
out the tlrigf >Madman in the last
couple of strides.
