Gee' but wasn't it cold standing
About Newfleld park yesterday In th-se
stiff breezes watching some ball play
ers and members of the Bridgeport
team attempt to toss a sphere about
the field. As it was the New York
Giantlets (McGraw'. 2nd team) with
"Rod" Waller in the box found the
local outfit, not even practice for them
as none' could hit the ball. Most of
the players had on their sweater over
coats. Upwards of 1,500 fans shewed
their loyalty. The practice before the
game by the members of the New York
team was even better than the game
Itself as the Giantlets did every stunt
to keep warm.
Manager O'Rourke used three pitch
ers. Pollard. Gibbs and McCarthy of
which the first appeared to the best
advantage. Three catchers were also
used. La Vigni. McAloor and Jamleson.
Of this trio the latter showed to the
bast advantage. He had to go some
to hold McCarthy who was very wild.
Jamieson is built on the lines of
"Dutch" Sherwood, looks like him and
plays like him. If he is as good as th3
local lad the fans will have cause for
rejoicing. Not much of a line could
really be gotten on .the local players.
When they struck town .Tghursday
afternoon and yesterday morning, a
number of the players presented a
husky appearance, but Oh! My when
thjy appeared on the field. Street at
tire is a erreat addition. As for the
gam the New Yorks did not exert
themselves as the locals could not hit
the bail out f the diamond. The
visitors started scoring in the second
on Meyers' base on balls. Hi'.t'a muffed
throw to catch him stealing second, a
passed ball and an outneld fly. Two
more came In the fourth: Meyers again
drew a pass and came home when
Simmons hit to deep right center on
which that player was caught trying
to stretch into a triple on a relay from
Ladd to Hilt to Miller. Weimer s narled
to left and came home when McAloor
threw the ball Into center field to catch
him trying to steal second. Gibbs who
was on the mound in the sixth was
pounded for five hits.
Merkle first up singled, stole second
and came home on Meyers' tilt to left.
Meyers reached second on Hilt's error
of Simmons' grounder. Simmons
reache'l third on Weimer's two aacksr
to risrht field. Weimer scored on Wil
son's rap to left. Went to second on
the throw in to catch Weimer. reached
third on Hilt's error of Waller's eaiy
tap and came home on DeVTe's single
to left. Total five runs. In the. 7th
Fletcher drew a pass, got to second
on a wild throw and came home on
Simmons single. In the ninth Cocash
singled to left field, sti-le Bcmii
Merkle srot a base on balls. McCar
thy's wild heave advanced them a base
each. They could have taken advan
tage of another wild pitch by the same
player but remained on their bases.
While Mac was winding up for the
next pitch Cocash started to steal
home, wriile Merkle tore in from sec
ond past third base and on towards
home. Cocash reached the station in
safety, with Merkle right after him
but the latter was too late. For B: id re
port, not a hit was made off Waller
till the sixth, when Miller sent a two
bagger along the left foul line and
came home when Brooks put a Tex .is
leaguer over third bnee. In the n nth
the Brldserorts started batting out of
order, puttlnsr the sore looks on the
blink. Hilt singled to left field but was
caught between second and thi d. Mil
ler rapped a three bagger to the left
center fence and scored on Brooks'
single to left. Hi Ladd went out on a
fly while Teehan was called out by

The other Connecticut league teams
were successful yesterday: at Hartford

Senators were tctorious 2-1. In Wa er

lost to the Authors 11-4.
Teehan. the young man who at
tempted to cover first base is about the
leanest specimen of humanity seen in
baseball around these parts in a num
ber of years. The fans have nick
named him "Scissors" already.

Bourquin handled himself well at

medium, but quite chunky. He did not

looks down with pride upon some
of its representatives that grace pro
fessional baseball. There Is a large
number at present from the town who
are stars in their own line. The only
big leaguer is Tommy Downey, who
made the major league in l ist six ye irs
of play'ng. Another is Hi Ladd. the
man Friday of Uncle Jeems. HI is not
remembered by the present generation

ants remember him quite well.
The Elues made a practical gain in
their lead over the Reds in the pool
tournament at the Bridgeport Club
yeFterday. they now being 140 points
to the good. Yesterday's contests were
quite mterest'ner. R. O. Bnntt won
his game from George Eaton. 100 to 95;
Frank J. Etfgstt won from A. B. Wa d
haus. 100 to 76. and H. A. Morse won
from Charles H. Botsford. 100 to 94.
The latter game took four hours and
forty minutes to play. On Monday
evening the first of the games in the
tournament for the President's cup
will be played off between Messrs.
Alden and Madigan.
It is expected that a nice little fight
will be waged in the league for the
services of Catcher Beaumont. O'Rourke
will not give up the star catcher with
out a struggle.
"Red" Waller says that he is still in
doubt whether he wi'l be a Giant regu
lar or not. He thinks however that h i
will be retained. The red man nas
fattened up a great deal since his last
appearance in Bridgeport.

Attention: Amateurs !
Although the baseball season
Is a trifle young the amateur
baseball managers, like the man
agers In the big leagues, are get
ting busy arranging their nines.
The Farmer will publish news
and scores, challenges and all
matter relating to amateur base
hall players. Let the managers
and captains get busy and send
along their challenges and notes.
AH communications must be
addressed to the Sporting Editor

Any of the young athletes who are
runners and who desire to make their
first appearance in a long distance
contest should not fail to enter the 15
mile amateur race which is to be a
preliminary to the professi6nal race at
the Park City rink next Wednesday
night. Dorando. the champion long
distance runner of Italy, who lost the
Olympian Marathon to Johnny Hayes
by a hair, will appear in the profes
sional race against two crack profes
sionals. Seats will 'be arranged about
the track to accommodate 2,500 people
and a band of music will play stirring
airs during the races. The prizes of
fered in the amateur contest are four
handsome loving cups.
Fully 1,000 Italian citizens will be
present to shout for Dorando. but if
Bob Hallen and Mike Spring come here
there is a possibility that these two
crack runners, each running half of
the distance against him, may be alble
to defeat the little Italian chap as they
am Jonnny Hayes at New Haven on
March 6.
If Spring- and Hafllep cannot be
matched another pair of crack runners
will be. A delegation of Italian citi
zens went to New Tork today to make
the match and incidentally to let Matt
Maloney, who finished fourth at the
New Tork Derby, know that there was
a chance for him to meet the Italian
champion in this city if he cared to
run. It is not believed that a match
can be made for Maloney, because of
other races he has signed for.
Bridgeporters who have never exper
ienced the thrills of a long distance
running match with a cheering crowd
present and a band of music to en
liven the event, should not fail to see
this one. John L. Sullivan was never
a more popular idol with the Ameri
can boys than Dorando is with the en
thusiastic sons of Sunny Italy.

The New Tea Room
The Tea Room opened this morning for business,
and demonstrated the fact that the innovation is ap
preciated. The room is very convenient for ladies
who, while shopping, desire to procure a light lunch
eon. The location on the second floor is convenient to the
rest room and elevators and being newly furnished
and decollated, presents an inviting appearance. In
the center of the room is a fountain with spouting
water and changing lights.
A special feature of the Tea Room will be the serv
ing of Afternoon Tea from three to six o'clock.
, The Clovers would like a game with
any fast team in the city or out of
town for Sunday afternoon at the Mud
Flats. Yesterday afternoon at Sea
side Park this team defeated the South
Ends 7-5. Jenner and Eigan were on
the firing line for the winners, and
"Rocky" Farrell and "Swampy" Wha
ley for the losers. The Clovers now
think they are in a class to play the
E. C. & B. No. 1 Industrial League
team, and put it up to Manager Ells
worth to say yes or no.

manager of Stanley Ketch"ll. m'ddle
welght champion is on thf- wamath
to-day. He says that unless Jack Joh 1
son consents to meet the Montana
flp-hter ho will claim the heawwetcht
championship and be ready to defend
the title against all corners. Britt sayi
that should Jim Jeffries agree to fight
Johnson, then he will wait until the
outcome of that fight. Jahnson is ac
cused of flunking out of a match with
Ketchell after hurling a defy at the
middleweight champion from Chicago
but wnen cornered refused to sign,
claiming that Ketchell was too small
and did not class with the heavies.
Jeffries still maintains his silent atti
tude despite the fact that Johnson yes
terday offered to knock out the Los
Anpeles farmer inside of twenty rounds
or forfeit the entire purse.
That a meeting between Kaufman
and Johnson is not 1-kely to occur in
the near future became known to-day
when Billy Delaney, the big Ca.l

night he would take his man to Eng
