Watt has shown sterling; spirit, and
Otto Huber likewise. The Park City
man has covered the New Haven In
i dependents' forfeit ot $50, and the hard
cash in in the Journal-Courier safe.
iThe first match game will be played
before December Ji3. It will be a meet
ing of two of the best teams in the
countrv.and the Interest whteh it will
l st ir up is such as has never been
I aroused In the bowling world before.
Neither Huber nor Watt admits the
J superiority of their teams, but say that
jthev will put their best team In the
,field for the purpose of defeating what
leach one terms as one of the best in
ithe countrv. Both teams have splendM
I records, aiid the bettor oue will won
ibe determined. The exchange of hrtt
air is at an end, and everything is now
in readiness tor ine gi-eaietii uaiuo iu
the bowling History oc (jonnecucui.
The continuous talk about George
;m the hrtitfllrff wrtrlfl mierht
lead to the Impression in gome people's
minds that he Is a professional bowler.
Far from that, he plays the game only
as a recreation, tieveh days a week
and seven nights he -is plugging in tn
Insurance business. However muh
this keeps him frftm the field of bowl
ing he seems t keep in the petfiet
trim which givs him the 'undisputd
name of beinsy one of the bent men in
the state In handling the bowling ball,
and controlling the ten pins. If he Is
the person jilekei! t meet Jiromi
Watt, -it will be a grand exhibition.
There remain now but three more
weeks of City league bowling. Th
RepubHcan league quintet lead the
league, and are a game and a half
ahead of the Aiohenbrodel team, which
affSregatififi has been slowly orecipinj
Into the lime light. The battle, how
ever, is not over, and the bowling of
the Republican club, the Aschenbroedel
team, the Winchester bowlers and the
Academy five will decide the winner.
The Republican club seemed to have
the championship clinehed at first, but
thev have met with reverses stfch as
that of last week, when the erratic
bowling of their new men caused tnem
to lose two games of their series to
the Westville tailenders. Nest week
Wednesday they meet the Sterling club,
which is located next to last in the
league standing at the Y, M. R. C.
alleys. Then they attack the Aschen
brocdel in the latter's alleys, and fin
ally the Aschenbroedel return the
match, playing at the Republican club.
The latter team oue-ht to come out oft
top in these series, and if they do the
championship is theirs. The other
grames lor nexi vv uunesuuy are
Aschenbroedel, and Tuxedo at Academy.
.The Waterbury State league bowling
team will plash with Johnson's leader's
in the Stale league next Tuesday night
at the Academy alleys in this city. The
game will no doubt be unusually ex
citing and interesting, as the locals
have now struck their pace, and will
endeavor tc draw away from the Cap
itol Cti.y and the Brass City teams,
which are located in the standing just
below New Haven. New Haven has
won two more games than Waterbury,
nd in order to keep her head out of
the water nnd get a pood leeway to
wards the championship, must at least
win two of the three frames. Bridge
port, will roll at Hartford, and Merlden
at New Britain cn the 6ame night.

ven won the roughest as well as the
fastest game of the season here to
night by a score of 7 to 3. The visi
tors were unusually strenuous, Farrel
and Saunders especially going In rough
and tumble. This example was follow
ed to considerable extent by the home
team. At times the game resembled a
general Wrestling match rather than
polo, science being cast to the winds.
Referee Kilgara .lost all control Of the
fcplayers and let all hands go as they
pleased. Heffernan and Mooney play

Meeting, h
$1,500 LIMIT FOR PLAYER
Boston Gets Eowerman, Fergu
son, McGann, Browne -and
Dahlen. " ' ;
New York, Dec. 13. One of the
largest exchanges of players ever re
corded In major league baseball waa
effected at the conclusion .of the Na
tional league meeting here to-day,
when the New York National league
team exchanged Frank Bowerman,
catcher; Cecil Ferguson, pitcher; Dan
iel McGann, first baseman; George
Brown, right fielder, and Wil
liam Dahlen, shortstop, substitute,
for Fred Tenney, first baseman;
Thomas Needham, catcher, and Al
Brldwell, .shortstop, all of the
Boston National league team. The
exchange was effected by John J.
McGraw, manager of the New York
club, and Jos. Kelley, the new man
ager of the Boston club, who were In
conference for nearly an hour, sev
eral other deals for exchanges of
players were under consideration, but
none were consummated. Several of
the magnets left for their homes to
night. The business transacted at the
league meeting included the adoption,
of an amendment to the oonstltu'.' --n
providing that waivers of players tp a
requested cnnot be withdrawn. The
magnates agreed .that the maximum
price at which a player might be pur
chased should' ibe $1,300 instead of
$1,000, the previous limit.
The new board of directors met aft
er the adjournment of the league, and
increased President Pulliam'a salary
$2,000. President Pulllam -will now
receive about $10,000 a year.
Several reforms suggested by Pres
idnt Pulliam that dates be fixed auto
matically for the playing oft ot post
poned games, to prevent seven inning
games, and the so-called "artificial
double-headers," were laid over for
the Joint meeting of the two leagues
next February., The representatives of
the Chicago, New York, Brooklyn arid
Pittsburg clubs announced that they
would fix their c!u'"b houses for visling
players, various committees were ap
pointed, including the playing rules
committee, which this year will consist
of President Pulliam, Captain Frank
Chance of Ch'cago and William Mur
ray of Philadelphia. '
The employment of the twig is not
the only method by which water find
ers work, and that In our. own case,
at least, we guarantee the quantity and
the depth predicted at the time of our
visit. Should this depth be exceeded
bur clients on!y pay for the agreed
cost of the work up to the depth pre
! dieted; and on the other hand, should
i It be foufid at a loss depth, then our
1 clients only pay for the work actually
done. Thus a client is assured of a
specified quantify of water a dav with.

Independents by Decem
ber 23.
MATCH AT TUXEDO ALLEYS
Most Important Contest Ever
Held Here Money Posted
With Journal-Courier. ,
James S. Watt came up from
Bfglgeport yesterday afternoon and
deposited with the Journal-Courier
$50 to cover the forfeit posted by Otto
Huber afa guarantee of his challenge
to the Bridgeport bowler's team.
The challenge was a general one
and yesterday afternoon In the Journal-Courier
office Mr. Huber and Mr.
Watt agreed uport arrangements for
the match which will be the greatest
that New Haven has ever seen.
The team which will meet Huber's
Independents will be. the Algonquins
of Now York, of which Watt Is a
member. The match is to be played
at the Tuxedo alleys some evening be
tween now and December 23, the date
to be announced later in this paper.
There Is to Ibe a return game played
on New York alleys and for this a for
feit of $125, will -be posted with the
Journal-Courier before the match Is
played at the Tuxedo alleys.
. The match is to be rolled under the
eastern rules with one man, two men,
three men and five men events. On
each of the three first events the op
posing teams are to put up $25 while
on the final event $50 a side will make
things interesting.
In the one man event the winner of
three out of five gets the maU'i; in
the two men event, the winner of two
out of throe; in the three men event,
the winner of two out of three, and
in the five men event, the winner
of two out of three. The matches will
start at 7 p. m. On what alleys In
New York the return game will be
rolled will -be decided in the coming
few days. .
The Algonquins team Is to be made
up of Jimmle Smith,- Dave Shlman,
Jim Watt, Schwebkr and Wyman
withe the privilege of one substitute.
The Independents will play: Huber,
Collett, Janswick, Webber and Reilly.
The privilege of a substitute Is also
given the Independents, and if he will
play Rlddell will probably be substi
tuted for Reilly.
The contest between the two teams
will certainly be a, very close one and
will attract besides bowlers from all
over the state, a representation from
New York, where the Algonquins Is
one of the best known teams.
The one man evftht Is one which will
be awaited with Interest because of
the fact that Watt Is anxious to get
at. George Collett of the Independents.
Challenges between . these two men

they may get together In this event. It
Is probable, however, that if Watt
takes the one man event for himself
on the Algonquins' side, Huber will
have Janswick represent the Indepen

the team nd will play In most of the

Paokie McFarland wants to run up against Joe Gans and win
away his title. Joe has not shown any desire for the match, and
