PAGES 9 TO 12. NEW HAVEN, CONN., TUESDAY, AUGUST' 6, 1907. TRI-WEEKLY MATINEE RACES New Haven Driving Club To Hold Meet Next Friday. ONE NOVELTY EVENT Several New Horses Will be Seen Here For the First Time. The fourth tri-weekly matinee races of the New Haven Driving club will be held at the Elm City track next Fri day afternoon, beginning at 2 o'clock. This meet should prove the most suc cessful of any held this season, as sev eral new horses will be seen for the first time. It is said some of them can show all kinds of speed. The program committee met at the home of the club's president, Dr. W. H. Crowe, last evening and completed all the arrangements for the coming speedfest. Besides the races in the five regular classes, the committee has planned to have one novelty event. This is to be a burro race. Such a race as this was scheduled for the last meet, but was called off on ac count of the muddy track. As it was 'then planned, the club members were to drive the obstinate creatures, while on Friday they will ride them. As the burros are only "knee high to a grasshopper," as the old saying has it, while some of the gentlemen who will compete are tall, the spectacle should be quite ludicrous. As the burro is the most obstinate of animals, all the drivers with long legs will have to do will be to put their feet on the ground and walk along, dragging the creature along with them. The horsemen, or rather burromen, will ride Bareback. lit Is expected that the race will de volve lllLU a, warning uuiiitrai,. The Officials for the meet will be announced later, probably on the morning of the races. The public Js Invited to attend, and a large crowd will undoubtedly turn out.

AUTO INTEREST HIGH - i NEW LOCAL OWNERS Movement in the Suburbs to Suppress Reckless Drrving. The automobile season Is now at Its height, and unusual interest Is shown both In business circles and by those who use automobiles for pleasure, which -fact is proved by the increased sale of machines during this season. There are several women In town who run their own cars, and are well up in the management of them, and who ev en understand about the mechanism and accessories almost as well as the men owners.

SPORTS HERE AND E IROWN'S BIO START SPORTING NOTES HANDICAPS CORCORAN . - Tailenders Beat Danaher's Pets in Listless Game. HAYWOOD'S HOME RUN Ponies Whitewash Leaders and Senators Blank Authors. The battle between the last steppers In the, Connecticut League race, held at the Savin Rock grounds yesterday afternoon, exhibited to the few hun dred supporters of the local club, base ball In its final stage. ' The tailenders worked Brown for three runs in the first three innings and virtually won the game In this one-third of the con test. The Brownies had a total of three more hits than the Whalers, but several of them were of the scratch variety. Blllie Hayward worked in three pret ty hits, one of them a homer over the left field fence, scoring New Haven's first run. Danaher's new find, Betcher, located on the second base performed splendidly. He was there with the wallop, hammering out two hits, and he also fielded his position to perfec tion. "Ham" Wade a usual covered the whole field behind second base, but he failed to connect with Treat's bend erst "Huckleberry" Connell, who has been chosen to lead the New Haven,1 team, was still out of the game owing to the five days' suspension. Har ry Jope otherwise known as the "Old Dog" or the "Mute" was acting cap tain. He took excellent care of his men, taking precaution not to allow them to indulge too freely in the game. That he would not have any hard feel ing among the players was especially shown when he whispered to Phil Cor coran at the end of the third inning to take Brown's position on the slab, but not to allow Brown to know who told him to do It. The excellent team work of the tail enders was exhibited in the third In ning, when Jope poked out a fly be tween Waterman and Rankin. Both players started after the ball and af ter dizzily watching it gently descend from the high position it had gained, they stepped aside and allowed the spheroid to seek the ground, gener ously allowing Harry a hit. This play was only one of the "many exhibited in this slow contest. Phil Corcoran, who relieved Brown In the fourth inning, pitched goqd ball and If he had not been handioapped by his predecessor's bad start, he would have come out with 'a victory. Brown was wild and was also hit whenever hits wore needed. Phil had the honor of getting a blngle off Treat, but Treat Wad the exclusive honor of hammering a bagger off Corcoran. Bunyah smash ed the ball out to within ten feet of the Intersector of the left field fence and the center field partition of 'Dana her's play grounds in the sixth. Jack was unable to get further than second on this long drive. 1 New London took advantage of Brown's wlldness and laid away three runs on' cold storage, for safe keep ing during his tlfree Inning stay in the box. In the Initial Inning, Waterman fouled to the Kid. Rankin bingled, Finn slid a blistering grasser to Betch er, which this player fielded cleanly 'and threw promptly to second, but Ranlcln was there Just in time to be called safe. McCabe caused the first damage of the game, hammering one of Corcoran's feasors out over second for a pretty bingle, Rankin crossing the life line. Jope threw to second to head off Mc Cabe on his steal, but Keenan inter cepted the throw and returned It to Jope, catching Finn at the plate by nearly a foot. Hayes walked and Mur ray rolled a speedy one to Sherwood and the Kid touched the third bag and McOabe was out. The thirl predicted Brown's removal from the slab. Waterman strolled to first after four of Brown's wild ones. Rankin bingled again, Waterman trav elling to second. Mickey Finn sacrific ed both players up a base, and McCabe 'again 'put the game on ice with a stinging hit over second. Waterman and Rankin scoring. Hayes and Mur ray ballooned the ball to Wade. Phil's appearance In the box at least in the fourth inning pitJved of no conse quence in abating the Whalers' runs. Collins was safe on the Kid's juggle of a bad bounder. Page bungled, Collins moving mechanically to the midway. Treat was safe on a fielder's choice, Phil tossing his bunt to Sherwood, heading off Collins. Waterman scored his first hit of the game, lining a sting er out to Hayward. Bill returned the. ball home Intending to try to catch Page at the plate. Phil, seeing that this was impossible, intercepted the throw and tossed the spheroid to Sher wood, nablijng Treat. Rankin finish ed the inning by flying to Betcher. Hayward's drive over the left field fence for a home run in the fourth scored New Haven's first run. Bill met the ball on the nose and his drive over the boundary of two baggers and homers was a beaut. There might have been the slightest kick thai the ball went over the fence foul, but Rorty was satisfied, so were the Whal- Pete Wilson allowed Waterbury pitch lost his own game. Baseball reached its final stage In the game here yesterday. Both teams played listlessly. ' Phil would no doubt have won his game if he had not "been han dicapped by Brown's three innings of wildness. Corcoran's new trick play worked effectively yesterday and turned a put-out Into a double play. Hayward's home run, althouh bases, was a beauty. , Billy's other : Phil managed to dig up a hit off Treat's delivery, but Treat had the exclusive honor of hammering off a pretty two-bagger' from Corcoran. Brown was wild in the extreme, and Acting Captain Jope did the proper thing when he relieved him by placing Corcoran on the mound in the third. Rankin and Waterman seemed dazzled by Jope's fly in the third and both placers allowed it to fall without making the slightest effort to catch it. McCabe caused most of the damage yesterday. His single in the" first drove In a run, and his single in the third sent two more across the rubber. The Tigers have made it five straight from the Nationals and are now situated at the top of the American league, with 11 points be twep n them and the Sox. When Walter West ran for Kennedy and was caught off second In the second Inning he remarked, "Well, I've earned rny pay for to day," and walked to the bench.i Waterbury and Springfield are working the see-saw act to per fection Thoy are still hovering around the second and third stages of Connecticut league baseball. . By degrees Dowd's Paperweights are arriving within firing rango . of the Ponies, Senators and Authors. The next week or two will no doubt find a different and more steadier leader. " The fight for last place Is indeed a pretty one. The Brownies are working strenuously to overtake the crippled tailenders, but they are handicapped in having one good twlrler Nolte.' The Senators will add another peg to their numerous 'victories and also advance another step towards the pennant after to-day's game. New Haven will be their generous opponent. Probably Danaher's next step will be to sell Hayward and Wade. Billy's record yesterday was enough to make any manager Jealous, and Wade's continuous fine fielding shows that he ought to be in bet ter company. ' "Huckleberry" Connell's absence owing to his five days' suspen sion caused Sam to cover the rlgt field garden yesterday. 'Jerry has been elected captain and, will assume the responsibility when he re turns from his neressltated vacation. ers 'and evidently everyone else. A continuation of a good beginning came the Brownies' way in the fifth. Three scratch hits in succession by CorrortLn. Sherwood and Keenan filled the bases. Hayward drove a long fly out to McCabe on which throw-in Cor coran crossed the rubber. Wade filed to Finn and all was over. A peculiar, and as Corcoran remem bered after the game, an unpremedi tated double nlav. happened In the sixth. Murray had rolled a bad bounder the Sherwood, which the Kid fielded cleanly and threw to Bunyan, but which Jack allowed to drop out of his hands. Collins filed to Sherwood and then Page popped one to Corcor an. Everyone thought Phil, surely had It, but he allowed it to leak through his hands. Murray had run back to first and Page had stopped half way hfttween home and third. As quick as a flash Phil twirled the ball to Keenan at second and Murray was out. Keen an threw it back to Bunyan and Page was out.' This double play is one of New Haven's latest and should be pat ented.' In the ninth both teams scored one lone tally. For the Whaers, Collins filed to Wade. Page rolled a grounder to Keenan, which Mugsy tossed to Bunyan., Page arriving thirty seconds late. It was then that Treat surprised the baseball world. He drove a pret- Lty hit over into the right garden, and was able to rush tne nan way noie with ease. Waterman singled and Treat went to third. Jope tried" to cut off Waterman in his endeavor to steal second, but the throw was wild and Treat scored. Betcher and Bunyan made easy work of Rankin's roller. For the Brownies in the final inning Jope singled and Corcoran wielded the ilIow thrice and walked to the bench. Sherwood made a timely hit and Jope crossed the plate. Hayward hammered out his third hit, but Wade spoiled our chances by fanning. The score: New London, r.' lb. p.o. a. e.
