UMPIRE SAYS BASi BILL ' FANATICS ARE HARMLESS t Umpire Billy Evans, , who Is a porting scribe In the Winter time, and . thus keeps before" the public, does the talking for the other um pires in both the American and Na tional Leagues. Evans is of tho ' opinion that the baseball reformers are inclined to go too far in attempt ing to make the fans adopt pink tea manners at a ball game. Kvans says: "There 'are a lot of people who favor a rule providing for the immediate ejection from the grounds of any fan who hoots or howls at the umpire. Now, to my way of thinking, that would be alto gether wrong. The warwhoop of the fans is music to my ears." It used to hurt, but it doesn't any more. The fans have an idea that the home team outclasses the visiting team, and If the home team doesn't win the umpire is at fault. "As I was leaving the ball field af ter a same in F allade'.r' la one day a game In which the "thletlcs beat their hated rivals, the Tigers by a great ninth-Inning rally, I heard a man say: 'We'd never have won that pwn out for the way we got after that umpire. He was afraid to give us anything but a square deal at the finish,' "Now, this fan thought he was right. He imagined that because I had declared Schmidt safe at the plate on a desperate slide In the eighth that the hisses greeting the decision had been a factor in my de cision that the same player, Schmidt, had failed to pet the ball to first ahead of Captain Davis in the ninth, and that the last decision had paved the way to the Athletics victory. The average fan is all right. He Imagines a lot of things that don't exist. 'but let him go on so thinking. It makes him a fan. and it is to Just such fans as this that the national game must look for Its support and Its prosperity." (0) WW) BASKETBALL A big crowd is expected at the T. M. t C. A. gym to-morrow afternoon, when the B. H. S. team faces Its old rivals the New Haven High School quintet. This is the team that B. H. S. is most anxious to defeat. The visitors are a fast bunch, having de feated the crack Stamford and Springfield High 8chools. The locals gained many supporters by their great game Saturday, wheii they held Bayonne High, champions of New Jersey, to a score of 34 to 20. They expect to make a great record from now pn, and will have some fast teams to show their calibre. Among the teams that will play here in the remaining days of the season are Cro sby High School, of Water bury; Meriden High. Yale Wander ers.. Buckley High of New London; Hpkin Grammar School of New Haven; Wesleyan College Freshmen, and New Britain High.

Chicagos Feb, 21 Bronzed, rugged and full of confidence in his team Manager Frank Chance has returnod to Chicago ready to take the tiller preparatory to piloting the Cubs in the coming National league race. The Cub leader not only thinks his team will win the pennant again, but is willing and able to tell why he thinks so, and this is It. "We will win,'! he said, "because we won easily last year with' a team that was not at its best. With Just the same men in the ranks the Cubs will be stronger than last; season. I do not look for any such run of hard luck as we encountered all through 1910. But the race will be a harder one. because the other teams have strengthened. To offset that we have picked up a lot of promising material from which we certainly ought to gain as much new strength as that added to. the other teams. New York and Cincinnati have brac ed " their teams and Pittsburg . must always be - counted in the running Fred Clarke is a grarfd fighter and you have to figure him in ail the time no matter . what they may tell you about his team. "The Beds will be dangerous If that man McQulllen Is right Much de pends on him, but I believe Griffith can got the best . he has, and that means he will be a grand pitcher. With McQulllen added to the pitching staff Griff's .bunch will be a tough proposition. His men are fast on the bases and in the field, while they are likely to break things .up at the bat any minute. "Nevertheless, I don't see anything but a. win for the Cubs in the end. We are hot going to have Reulbach sick from diphtheria and. weak from the effects of it for the greater part of the season. We missed him last year. Then Ffiester just as he" was going right -broke his wrist. Overall twisted a ligament in his pitching arm, and could not help us In the lat ter half of the season. If we could win in the face of all that happened to us last year, I can't see how they can beat us if we have only the av age amount of tough breaks in a sea son. "We have some mighty good ma terial among the recruit, and a lot of them are pitchers. We need only one good one out of the lot. Vic Willis will bea big help. I shall al ways believe he pitched Pittsburg into the championship in 1909. He did not go back as fast as many per sons think in a single season. I at tribute his comparatively -poor show ing last year to the conditions in 8t. Louis. Willis is a cool weather pitch er, and is best in spring and falL It is awful hot at times in St. Louis, and the heat weakened him. Chicago 1s far cooler, and well, you just watch Vic." HARVARD'S FRESiOENT FAVORS HEW FOOTBALL Boston.Feb. 21. President A. Law rence Lowell of Harvard is authority for the statement that the revised football rules have reduced materially the injuries which have heretofore characterized the game. He made this statement in his annual report to the board of overseers of the uni versity. President Lowell holds that the changes made in the rules govern ing the game have not detracted from the spectacular features of the sport and Intimates that when the players become more familiar with the new rules the Injuries will de crease in proportion. In his report he says: "The feeling that Intercolleglatte games of football were too danger ous to life and limb has resulted in an effective revision of the rules. These have not, perhaps, been in $p eratim lonr enough to produce their ultimate results. , "It would seem that the teams In some of the colleges have not yet become accustomed to them, but the changes have certainly not made the game a less Interesting spectacle.and among Harvard players, at least, the Injuries have been greatly reduced. YOSTS AND "GRAPHS" IHAH EVES BREAK The athletes connected with the Un ion Typewriter Co. and the American Graphophone Co.. met in many con tests last evening at the Y. M. C. A. gym.

MUCH DEPENDS ON OUTCOME OF LANG - LANGFORD FIGHT IN OLD LONDON TONIGHT Winner Has Been Promised a Match With 1 . ' - i . Jack Johnson For World's Championship-Negro is 5 to 4 Favorite -$175,000 Put up on Result (Special from United Press.) London, Feb. 21 Race prejudice as strong as ever manifested itself in the United States Is cropping out here in connection with the 20 round fight, to night, between Bam Langford. the Boston Tar Baby, and Bill Lang, the Australian. Hundreds of letters have been received at Lang'a camp from all over England wishing aim luck in his effort to uphold the white race. Last evening a large delegation, most of whom were women, vjs'ted Langford's headquarters and openly insulted the black man by telling him that they hoped he would "have his head knocked off." While the public is pulling for Lang to win it doesn't let its favoritism get the better of its Judgment and Lang ford is still the long end in the bet ting at odds of B to 4. It is Isestlmat ed that 1175,000 has been wagered on the fight in big bets alone. Physicians examined Lang, today, and pronounced him the finest physi cal specimen they had ever seen. Langford is in h's usual jolly mood and repeated his prediction, today, that he would put Lang away inside of 12 rounds. "My match with Jack Johnson is as good as made," said he. today, "If Johnson sticks to his promise to meet the winner of tonight's fight." . Langford will enter the ring weigh ing about 185 pounds whereas Lang will carry all of 190. Mcintosh, who Is Lang's manager, has repeatedly announced that the Australian is the best white pugll st In the ring, not excepting Al Kaufman and other "hopes." but in this coun try many .sporting men do not hold this opinion, with the result that Langford has been heavily backed here as well as In Great Britain and will be the ringside favorite. Langford was born In Weymouth, Nova Scotli in 1880 and is 5 feet 7 1-2 Inches tall , He has a phenomenal ring record. Starting out as a profes sional in 1902 he began . to attract at tention in Boston ind New England. He wasonty a wefterwe'ghf then.; but he rapidly forged to the front by de feating such men as Tim Kearns, Walter Burgo. Belfleld Walcott, Young Griffo, Patsy Sweeney, Joe Gans, Charley Johnson, Willie Lewis, Geo, McFadden, Young Peter Jackson, Lar ry Temple and Joe Jeannette. He met Jack Jnhnson at Chelsea, Mass.. In 1906. and the latter got a. decision in a fifteen round bout, although Langford knocked the big negro down for. the count in the second round. Af ter that Langford went to , England and stopped Tiger' Smith and Jeff Torne in JigtJme. Coming back to America he whipped Jim Barry, Jim Flynn, Sandy Fergu son. - Al Kubiak. Morris Harris and John Wille, after which he made an other trip to London and knocked out the English heavyweight champion. Ian Hague, !n four rounds at the Na tional Sporting club. He was matched to" fight Johnson at this club, but the latter, ' after beating Burns In Aus STAHL OIIE OF FEW WHO QUIT GAME VOLUNTARILY Baseball players who retire deliber ately when they have plenty of good playing days ahead of them are few and far betweeen. Cases like that of Jake Stahl are very rare. Stahl. from the form he showed with the Boston Bed Sox last year, could go on placing indefinite ly!. Other notable Instances of this kind were those of Fielder Jones, Bill Lange and John M. Ward. Jones stopped when he was right at the top of his ability. He hadn't reach ed the downhill stage and had shown himself to be a star manager as well as a ball player. Fruit raising In Oregon held out allurements which he couldn't resist, and with his re tirement the game suffered the loss of a player of rare skill. - Bill Lange wa-j another shining light which the sport could ill afford to lose, although the defection of any one player, no matter how ef ficient, makes only microscopical Im press on the national game. As a fielder, batter and base runner, Lange towered far above the general run of players, and he probably wasn't even at his best would have improved still further when he dropped diamond activities for good and all and settled down to business in California. John Ward, may have seen his best days as a player when he f orsoook baseball for the law. but a man of his type and ability would have gone on for a good while longer as a man ager had he cared to. Like the oth ers, however, when he said he was through he meant it. Mike Donlin gave up the game when he was at his best, and men who could hit aa he could are a loss when they and the diamond come to the parting of the ways. When Mike quit he quit, though with him had the sufficient money incentivj been forthcoming he probably would have come back to the game. Billy Lauder, the third baseman, stopped playing of his own free will and for no other reason than that he prefer red to" do something else.' He could have held his own In fast company for some time longer, as also could Ted Lewis, the pitcher, who gave up baseball without waiting for the first symptoms of a decline. BURNS DEFENDS TITLE AGAIBSTJjMADA'S best (Special from United Press.) New Haven, Feb. 21. The bantam title is at stake in the 15 round bout between Frankie Burns, of Jersey City, the present world's champion, and Alf Lynch, of this city, Canada's champion, scheduled for tonight's An nex A. C. stag. Johnny Waltz, also of Jersey City ,wiU meet Jeff Doherty, w a to r i aKv t tralia, refused to abide by his agree ment. - Langford boxed six rounds with the late Stanley Ketchel in Phil adelphia last year, and though under a pull he clearly outclassed the form er middleweight champ on, who re fused to meet him ia another fight to a finish. Langford for personal reasons refus ed to meet - Al Kaufman in Philadel phia last fall, but he went to the Coast and stopped Jim Flynn in a few punches. He challenged Johnson ' re peatedly, after that, but the latter persistently- Ignored him and refused to cover his forfeits. They finally met in Boston to arrange a battle, but the conference ended in - a war of words. ' It is believed by many that barring Johnson, Langford Is the hardest hit ter in the world. Though he is a bit short he is aa quick as a. cat and is all aggressiveness. He is scientific and can hit from any angle, 'but his most effective blows are delivered at close quarters and generally travel only a few inches. He is a quick thinker and in point of physical con dition it may be s:d that he always takes excellent ears of his health. Be caus of his speed and punching pow er, coupled wfth his long ring exper ience, he ls! flicked to win, and If he scores a knockout it will not be sur prising. . ' Lang is a typical Australian, game, strong and willing. He met. Jack Johnson several years ago and was taking a hard beating when the au thorities interfered. ' This battle took place in Australia when Lang was little more than a novice.' Tommy Burns knocked him out in six rounds in 1908, but last year in another scrap Lang managed to stay- twenty rounds, though Burns received the referee's verdict on points. Lang came to Axnerlca last summer to see the Jeffries-Johnson mill. He hooked up w:th Kaufman In Philadelphia in the fall and was clearly outpointed in a six-round contest. In that affair Lang broke his wrist and was unable to do himself justice,- at the same time I being compelled to ,take va-? long rest. TT1 M 1 . vv nn Juang rpatneu .Engiana no was hailed by Mcintosh as the coming champion of the world. He proceeded to beat Jack Burns of Callforn'a, a fourth rater and then lost on a foul to Petty Officer Curran In the first round. - Lang is a slow coach. He can hit with either hand and Is fairly clever. His best quality is physical strength, which goes hand in hand with remark able pluck. He can take a beating and for that reason Mcintosh does not see how Langford can put him to sleep. The Olympia Annex can accommo date nearly 10.000 spectators and the fight has attracted so much attention on the other side that an Immense crowd will attend. The prices range from S3 for- an admission to 150 for a box seat and the men will fight for 60 per cent of the gate receipts. Eu gene Corrl, the stock broker and sportsman, probably will referee, and will go Into the ring with the pugilists American style. of this city. Jersey City is represented for the third time in the preliminary between Young Shugrue of the Mosquito State and Joe Marcks, a local lad. BASEBALL NOTES Cheer up fanatics, the baseball sea son is not many days off. Just work ahead a bit, the Connecticut league opens two months from today. The Mechanic recruits will be bounding into Bridgeport In about six weeks. Can you v wait it out? Not necessary to state that some of the fans are counting the time between now and the. start by the days. Then again, the reports from the training camps will be now piling in daily, so that uvery one will be supplied with the veal stuff at every meal. Having noted what most of tho Connecticut league manager have been doing, how do the clubs size up? The opinion goes around the circuit that Bridgeport and Hartford will be the big noises this year. Lay a bet down that Manager McCann will not be caught as he was last year, he'll be there with the utility stuff when anything goes wrong, meaning that first place looks good to him. From the appearance of his pitching staff and from those other players he has signed up for other positions, in ad dition to the number yet unannounc ed, who are in the training camps, it does appear that the Mechanics of 1911 will be 100 per cent, speedier than McCann's hirelings of 1910 and that was some sweet outfit. As for Hartford, Manager Tom Connery will be back In the game this season, signifying that the Senators will be in the hunt from the start. Not' a peep has been heard from O'Neil In New Britain; not much is known about the Canal Diggers, Winkler will bring to Holyoke; Owner Gil Edwards of Northampton has not given out anything that- would cause alarm; Waterbury is in an unknown state, because of the uncertainty in man agement; New Haven i.nay be gcod, they have men who at one time did know how to play the game they may yet show something; in Spring field, Manager Jack Zeller has been real busy and has signed -up men who appear to have the stuff in their makeup. He has corralled a bunch of promising youngsters, and ought out of the large number he will fead at Asbury Park get some who will be future stars. The Ponk outfit ap pears to be the best sent out from Springfield since Zeller took hold. But looking them all over, the Mechanics do appear to be the headliner. yet you never car tell, It's baseball they are going to play, while baseball pen nants are not won in February. The Mechanics, have an extensive pre-season schedule this year. Mc Cann has picked up most of the games he Intends to play before the Nutmeg race and any spare dates will be used for games with some of tho city teams. The schedule follows: THE WORD HURLEY IS SURELY SWEET MUSIC TO ANYONE'S EARS HAVE always wanted a good definition of " Getting Hurleytized," 1 but the one a customer gave me off-handed the other day seems the truest. . "Wm," sez he, " 'Getting Hurleytized' is like getting 50 inches to the yard; or 30 ounces to the pound; or 3 pints to the quart." . ThaVs the way all my customers feel about my great values. Another one said: nWm., when the day comes that you can pour the Atlantic Ocean into one of Ruppert's beer bottles, I'll believe that the ground-floor stores can out-value you but understand, not until then." ; What "Getting Hurleytized" can yield you depends on yourself; not on me.

Brockton at Bridgeport: April 15, New Bedford at Bridgeport; April 17, Newark (Eastern league), at Bridge port; April 18, Bridgeport at New Bedford; April 19, Bridgeport . at Brockton; April 21, opening of league season in New Haven. That's a chesty list of exhibition games Manager McCann has arrang ed to get the lines on his players. Not only will they give McCann a chance to pick out those who will grace the Mechanic pay roll, but will also afford the fans a chance to com pare the strength of the New Eng land and our own tight little right little circuit. 1 And then two of the Eastern i league clubs will stop , over for games. Guess McCann is not in right with the managers of the other leagues. Manager McCann will soon have to be seeking new offices in which to hold his typewriter and safe.. The order has gone out to the tenants of the Connecticut Bank building to va cate, as the structure is to be remod eled starting April 1. McCann bow ever, has yet to receive notice.

CURLERS DEFEAT CANADIANS FOB TITLE Boston, Mass., Feb. 21 The inter national curling championship and the Gordon medal was won by the United States at the Boston Arena after nve hours of play yesterday when the Canadian teams were derated by the total score of 149 to 137. It marked the nineteenth annual tournament, during which time Canada has won thirteen times and the United States six times. Canada won last year. The Unittd States teams won in five of the -eight rinks today, twenty-one enda being played at all the rinks by agreement. ' The closest match was that between the St. Andrews of Montreal, and the Jersey City Curling club, which was not decided until the last stone was skipped. Measurements of the three nearest stones gave tne match to St. Andrews by one point, the score be ing 18 to 17. State Senator Edwards of New York captained the Jersey City ' team. New Orleans. Feb. 21. The betting odds on . the ' Coulon-Conley fight jumped to 7 to 6 with Conley the favorite, today, following the choos ing of Tommy Walsh for referee, last night. The choice lay between Walsh and Dr. Wallace Wood but in a stormy conference no agreement was reached until the tossing of . a coin was suggested and Walsh won. A grand rally by Paddy Sullivan i the last few rounds enabled him to draw last night with Kid Burns, whom he met in a ten-round bout at the Olympic A. C-, in New York. The bout went the limit, neither man ever being in danger of a knockout. Sulli van's hard right failed to work at opportune moments. Sullivan's poor showing was due to a large extent to a foul blow which Burns unintention ally sent to his groin in the fourth round. Burns had the advantage when the gong sounded for the fourth session, and, eager to follow it up, Burns rushed out of his corner and hooked a hard right for Paddy's body. Had Sullivan remained In his position he would have received the blow in the pit of the stomach. In his anxiety to avoid it, Paddy jumped back and the blow struck him in the groin. Sullivan was hurt by - the punch and was unable to continue until after a five-minutes' rest.

The test will be to show that the motorette Is not merely a proposition for asphalt pavements, but an all year car on any roads whatsoever. The trip will be through seventeen States and the territory of New Mex ico. The following principal points will.be touched: New Haven. Bridge port. New York, Philadelphia. Balti more. Washington. Richmond, and Roanoke. Va.; Atlanta, Ga.; Birming ham. Ala.; Dallas. Fort Worth and El Paso. Tex.: Juarez. N. M.; Tucson and Phoenix. Ariz.; San Diego. Los An geles and San Francisco.

Return Engagement Promised Next Tuesday Evening Big Audience Likely Wilton Lackayefl the distinguished! American star in a powerful, purpose- ful new drama in three acts. ."The Stranger", by Charles Dazey. made a memorable Impression upon the . ta.tr sized audience that ventured forth to greet him at the Park Theatre" last evening. Mr. Lackaye has . the ad vantage of a cast of sterling merit, and a production scenlcally complete. The play Is replete with proinlse . of success. By popular request Mr. Lackaye will play a return engagement next Tues day evening, Feb. 28. The hundreds who would have visited the theatre last night but for the inclement weather, will thus have another op portunity to witness the etrong new play. The story deals with the decay of ; the vast old Southern estates through the depletion of the fortunes of the Southern aristocracy, and draws a striking contrast of patrician indo ience of the South with the plebeian push of the Ndrth. "Pedigree is very important if you are buying a Jack ass, but it'e out of date when you are sizing up a man." is one of the bolt , that John Marshall, the stranger from the North, hurls Into the startled, group of representatives of the oldest families of the South. Again he says. "The old social prejudice of the South, stronger than the Rock of Gibraltar, and sometimes. I think, stronger than the strongest thing in the world." J John Marshall returns, unknown, to , Danville, the town from which he wa driven out as the poor-house rat. whose mother died without making clear the identity of his father. Mar shall succeeds as a railroad financier, working up from the bottom, but when he meets Mary, the daughter or General Randolph Warrington, his for7 tune appears to him as naught conr pared to the distinctions of family, the absolute necessity of which Is in- . bred in the daughters of the old' South.

Political intrigue. scandal. falsehood, are arrayed against him by the Carters, father and son. until the denouement when It is learned that John Marshall is not birth stained, but the rightful son of Col. Carter. Mar shall's rival Bultor. whose supposedly honorable son has under the Southern code of ethics, no claim upon social recognition. -. Marshall's flght to overcome the es tablished order of thin, social and business wise In the South. Is the ' theme of the play. Mr. Lackaye gave a convincing picture of the hustling business man of the class that doesn't give much thought to women in gen eral, but forgets almost everything else when the one woman in particu lar arrives. Mr. Lackaye's handling of the intensely dramatitc situations,- of which there are not a few. was m his accustomed thoroughly masterful manner. No less than 12 calls were given his company and himself upon the climax being reached. Muriel Starr presented a fascinating . picture of the spirited. Southerner wh -is won over ' to Marshall's idea of thinking. The cast furnishes several excellent "character" players, lnclud--ing Frank Burbeck' as Judee Carter, Charles Reigl as General Warrington, the grizzled Confederate warrior; E. . M. Kimball, who scored In the pic turesque role of the auctioneer and Justice of the peace; and Harriet Brent as the "mammy." Harry O. Stubbs as Theophilus Pmkney. an other Southerner being enlisted In the Northern school, injected many flashes of fun by his breezy Interpretation of the part of the pickle drummer. Edna Conroy. as Venetla Warrington, Mary's confident! added another to the enchanting picture of the South. Oth ers who rounded out the capital cast were Louis Thomas, Osborne Searle, and H. S. Northrup. Mr. Northrup as the younsrer Carter gave an effec tive enactment of a part that fairly reeked with villainy. DISMASTED SCHOONER ' ' TOWED INTO PORT. (Special from United Press.)
