Tirae-2:U, Bowling, Polo, WORLD CHALLENGE IS KOWACCEPTED Jimmie Watt, of Bridgeport, Will Bring Team AgainstV Independents. C0LLETT MAKES PROPOSAL Fifty Dollars to be Posted With Journal-Courier as Evi . dence of Faith. In reply to the world challenge of Huber's Independents announced in the Journal-Courier yesterday morning, Jim Watt of Bridgeport, comes out with the announcement that he and his team will give Huber's five a game Just as soon as they like and for as much as they can dig up. Watt stated to Jhe Journal-Courier last night that he would individually roll Collett, Janswlck, Kuber or any one else in New Haven for a stake of $500, which might be reduced as low as $50, but not lower. Hardly had this announcement been made when George Collett of Huber's Independents calmly sat down and penned a letter to Mr. Watt telling him in the politest of manner to put up or shut up and to cut out the gzs and get down to huslnqjs. Because of the hazy wording of Watt's general challenge some definite point to start from seemed necessary and Mr. Collett proposes the following; That the first of a series of matches be played on the Tuxedo alleys this city, iDecember 20. ' In a one man match the winner of four out of seven to take the points. Each side to put up $25 on this match. In a two man match the victory to go to the winner of three out of five games. The stakes to be $25 a side. In a three man match the same to go to the winner of two out of three matches. The sides to put up $50. A five men' match to go to the winner of three out of five games. The stake to be $50 on each side. In the challenge lt Is stated that the New Haven team Is made up of en tirely New Haven men, and that the Bridgeport team should be made up of Bridgeport players. A return game Is to be played should Bridgeport so de sire. . The challenge also states that Mr. Collett and the Independents will put up a $50 forfeit With the Journal Courier as an evidence of good faith and that Jimmie Watt Is to cover it or forever hold his peace. In regard to WatVs personal chal lenge, Mr. Collett will meet him any time, any place and for any amount with side bets galore. ' interesting developments are expect ed. MAROOXS MAY PLAY YALE. Coach Stags Would Like to Take a Fall Out of His Alma Mater.

It Is. certain that Chicago will nnt meet Carlisle In 190S, and is not probable that a game will be arranged with Pennsylvania.

The Bridgeport team Is within hailing distance of New Haven, but th.j local boys can be depended on to ketp them guessing for some time yet, before al lowing the visitors to step up above them on the league ladder. That poio is booming In Bridgeport cannot be denied, with the Interest shown by the fans at the big games, and the warm fight on bcEween the teams of the Amateur league- Sunday night the Sacred Heart Polo league was formed, with six teams in the field. ifulleng lost three goals at Now Brit ain Saturday night through leaving lr'3 cage at critical moments. ! a cad habit to get into, Mr. Mjllens.
