' ' FOB STAIECHAMPIONSH!P KING VS. DOHERTY. Lightweights Will Battle Fifteen Rounds Next Friday Eight. The Connecticut Athletic club will next Friday night present one of the best boxing cards of the season, secur ing for the big show Mosey King, Yale's boxing instructor, and Jeff Doherty,, who are scheduled to go fif teen rounds to a decision. This battle will really determine once and for all the title of champion light weight of Connecticut, as both Doherty and King claim that honor. The fact that these boys have agreed to box winner take all Insures local fight fans of a slap, bang mill, for the decision of the referee, Hector Mclnnls of Bos on, will be handed out on points, and the outcome of this mill is at present very much in doubt. . Jeff Doherty started training last week. He has established a camp in West Haven near the shore, and is working faithfully to got down to weight. Part of his dally program is a dip in the Sound, after boxing with several of his sparring partners. Like all the big fellows Jeff believes in road work and has added a five mile tramp through the country to his daily work. Mosey King will have the backing of a big crowd of New London sports, as Mose comes from, the Whaling city and is a great favorite there. He is doing his training at the Yale gym and his friends claim that he is much fast er than when he boxed Doherty here last March. ' In the semi-final mill "Dodo" Maher of this city will meet "Abe, the News boy" of New York, the bout is carded for eight rounds. Maher is favorably known to local sports and has a large following. If he beats the New York mit pusher he will be matched with Jeff Doherty before some local club. As a curtain raiser, Young Ryan of Cambridge, and Kid Smith of Provi dence, will mix it for six rounds. These, boys are boxing for a big side bet and as 'they have cleaned up all the preliminary fighters in Massachu setts and Rhode Island, they may be depended upon to put up a slashing exhibition. OPTION TO T RANSFER Gft M ES HUMPHREY PRIVILEGED President fracey and All Managers but Durant Present.,, All of the State league baseball teams except Waterbury were represented at the meeting held last evening in one of the small rear rooms of the Garde ho tel. The humidity was intense and the magnates tried to pull off the work which was supposed to come up at tho meeting in as quick time as possible, but In the one hour in which they were In session only one real matter of im portance was discussed. The managers were all willing to ' allow . Manager Humphrey the option of transferring all of his home games to other towns. The question had been up to this time unsettled and was of considerable im portance. President Tracy was in the chair and the teams were represented as follows: P. H. Prindevllle, Holyoke; Dan O'Neil, Springfield; J. H. Clarkin, Hartford; C. J. Danaher, New Haven; Gus Softel, Norwich; Charles Humphrey, New1 London, and James O'Rourke, Bridge port. John Kennedy, the supervisor of umpires, was also present. ': From about 8 o'clock until 8:45 the managers walked about the hotel in deep meditation. At 9 o'clock the meet ing was called to order. The New London question was discussed for nearly three-quarters of an hour, final ly resulting in the managers being unanimous In allowing Humphrey the transferral privilege. The umpire question and the forfeited game yesterday afternoon were only Just mentioned at the meeting. Man ager Danaher had an informal talk with Dan O'Neil concerning the pros pects of . the game being played over again. Whether Danaher will be suc cessful in his attempt was not decided last evening. In the midst of the talk between Dan aher and O'Neil several of the man agers Jumped up and made a dash for the 10:40 train, thus spoiling the chances of that question being settled at this meeting. Umpire Crocker, probably by reason of his injuries, was not present to defend himself at the meeting. NEW HAVEN BAND. Will Accompany Ansonla Firemen to New Mllford. . , . This morning Holt's American band, of New Haven, will go to Ansonla to head the members of Eagle Hose H. & L Co, who are going to New Mil ford. The Eagles have been presented by Mrs. Franklin Farrel with a fine bass drum to be used in the big parade. The drum is lettered "Eagles Hose Co., lAnsonia, Conn." The members of the band will wear white duck trousers and leggings, similar to those to be worn by the members of the company, and the band will thus appear as a band connected with the company.

Mr. Gardner is at present sitting in the general assembly. He came here from Deep River. SPORTS HERE AND ELSEWHERE I DANAHER'S DOCTORED BALL Umpire Crocker ' Makes Memorable Debut With Frenzied Fans. GAVE GAME TO PONIES Orators Shut Out Waterbury Whalers and Holyoke the Other Winners. Umpire Crocker made a memorable debut as a State league official yester clay attcrnoon at the Savin Rock grounds by being the cause of one of the greatest riots which has ever broken out in this city or in any of the other State league cities at a baseball game. Crocker, who succeeded Mackey as "the man behind," made his first appearance in the State league yester clay, and he had all the appearance of making good. The contest was sched uled between the Ponies and the New- Haven aggregation, but to all appear ancs it was between the fans, the chief offenders being "Claihs" and Umpire Crocker. The result of the game be tween the fans and the umpire might bo called a decided Victory for the for mer, but as they did not gain any ben efit for their trouble, the umpire might be termed victorious, for he called the game forfeited to Springfield, 9 to 0, and no amount of capital punishment could have made him change his mind The riot came to pass thus: Fitzpat rick was up to the bat for New Haven in the last half of the third; and O'Con nor, the Ponies' backstop, told Crocker in a quiet manner that the ball which New Haven furnished was wet and slippery, and it ought to be replaced by a new one. The umpire looked at the ball, and, not satisfied, smclled of it. His opinion was that there was kerosene on the ball and he told Hay ward to give him a good one. Hay ward tried to explain to Crocker that Nolte used a spit ball and that the ball was wet with slippery elm, The umpire persisted tnat there was kerosene on the ball, and rather than cause a dls turbance Bill Hayward handed Crock' er a now ball. The umpire called play and instead of throwing a new ball to Miller he threw him an old one. Hay ward could not see his reason for this and immediately was on the diamond telling Fitzpatrlek not to bat until the new ball was used. Crocker rose to his dignity and put New Haven's captain off the field. Danaher from the grand stand told Connell, who was then act ing captain, not to play until Crocker put the new ball in play. Sam Ken nedy, another of New Haven's kickers, filled in with hot air the space of time where Connell was unable to talk for lack of wind. Then Crocker, as cool as a cucumber, stepped off from the dia mond and without taking his watch from his pocket, a usual custom In such a case, in order to give the New Haven team the allotted time to quiet down, announced to the bewildered audience of about 600 that the game was for feited to Sprrngfleld, 9 to 0. No sooner had these cairn words roll ed from the official's mouth than the entire 500 fans rushed from their seats and started to mob the umpire. Their treatment of this innocent official was entirely beyond Imagination. Bats were picked up and used as weapons to teach the umpire his first lesson In the art of umpiring. One ambitious fan caught the miscreant by the neck and held him while others pounded his face and body. The arrival of the blue- coats, half a dozen In number, com bined with the baseball players, tried to stop the frenzied mob. After sev eral minutes of the hottest kind of work Crocker, pale as death and suf fering from all manner of bruises, was escorted by the resouers, first to the players' bench and then to the street. Manager Danaher said after the game that he would protest the game and the umpire's right to fine Hayward, Connell and Kennedy. As to who was right and who was wrong in this fight between the New Haven team and the umpire, there are two answers. The right one, however, is that Danaher was the cause of the riot by not allowing the game to pro ceed and his desire to keep a ball in play which he knew to be dootored with kerosene oil. Before the game one of the Brownies was seen rubbing kerosene oil on the baseball, at the same time remarking to another play er, "We ought to do some good batting to-day." As to the baseball game itself, that is, the two and one-half innings which were played, Springfield seemed to have the better of the struggle. New Haven scored two runs In the first. Connell walked and scored on Bunyan's single over third. Jack tallied on Ken nedy's pretty two-bagger to the fence in deep right field. Kennedy's hit would have been good for three bases if he had not slipped and fell when rounding the first station. The Ponies got five consecutive hits off Nolte in their half of the third, tal lying a total of three runs. Curtiss singled to left field and scored on O'Connor's two-bagger. Luby drove out another two-sacker, O'Connor scor ing. Rising singled, scoring Luby. Stankard singled, Rising going to third. The latter player was caught, Sher SPECIAL NEWS FROM CREWS PAGE 2 wood to Connell, when he tried to steal home on Burns' crasser to Sherwood, The score by innings: R.H.E.

A single, a steal and a double scored the first run while a triple followed by a single earned the second. This was Juvenile day and about 700 assorted specimens of Young America, admitted free, shrilled their approval or the many fine plays on both aides and varied the program with an occasional fight.

Bromley and Gavett, who have been respectively bow ana jno. a in me rour, were substituted In the morning Bromley rowed at bow and Newman was moved from that po sition to No. S. This evening these po sitions were reversed. Gavett had No. 5 seat at both sessions. , The four was boated as follows: Bow, Welch; No. 2, Colson; No. 2, Seymour; stroke. Holt.

All the crews held their usual prac tice twice to-day, Annapolis, Syracuse, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin going- over the full course under the watch. No time was given out. i YALE NINE LEAVES TO-NIGIW. In Preparation for FIrit ot Haraird Championship Series. ' The Yale baseball team leave this evening for Boston, where they will rest one day before the first of the Har vard championship series The Question which causes the most trouble to the Ell followers Is, who will occupy the box on Thursday. Van Vleck seems to be the only man who has Bhown sny consistent work, and he will probably pitch part of the game if not all. Mey er has rheumatism in his legs, and h'is arms are not their usual form, and. tnererore, xaies nopes in mm ara somewhat dampened. In the praotlcn last Saturday almost all the plavers who ever tried to pitch were put in tho box and given trial. Among the most competent was Lippitt. This youngstpp struck five men out, among these belnjr Church and Kinney. If Cippltt could continue in the form which he showed on Saturday there Is no doubt but what he would have a chance In one of the Harvard games. Brown 10, Alabama 4. Providence, June 17.
