It Is njore than likely tliat the recent
bout between George Dixon and Mike
Leonard li.is killed 'boxing in New York.
The supposition was tliat the meeting was
to be a friendly onet and Leonard got
Dixon's promise to go lightly, but he no
r-ooner saw an open Ing than he started
In to "do" the colored boy and thus
make a cheap reputation for himself.
The outcome of Leonard's action was that
he and Dixon got into a regular rough and
tumble fight, and the authorities now seem
Inclined to give no more permits for boxing
The next important event scheduled for
the coming week Is that between Kid La
nugo and Jimmy Handler, to take place
before the Empire Athletic Club, at
Maspeth, on Monday night. This meeting is
bound to be an Interesting one. Handler
Is regarded by many expert judges of
boxers as having the making of a cham
pion Lavigne has been tried by good
niciiiind found to be a game, hard hitter,
but many think him slow and lacking in
science Handler Is not only cry scientific,
but he is fast, and will give the Michigan
wonder a furious fight if he does not de
feat him The winner of this bout stands a
good chancei to be matched against the
English lightweight champion, Valentine,
If the latter should fall to get on a mate
with the American champion, McAullffe.
Joe Touey, who came to this city from
Chicago a few days ago, has agreed to
box Billy McMillan six rounds at the ex
hibition to be given at Georgetown next
week. Tousey was atone time regarded as
a very good m.tn He met Joe Choyn'.ki In
Chicago in a limited round go and made
a good showing. He traveled Willi Peter
Jackon nftcrw erd, but since tliat little ha
been heard of him in the boxing world.
The arrival of Valentine, the champion
English lightweight pugilist, has not
Created the Interest among the boxers here
that the nihent of such a distinguished
character from abroad usually does. There
may be a reason In this In the fact that
Valentine is not looked upon cither In his
own country nor this as being a phenomenal
boxer. Hels niltbera Carney nor a Burge.
When Carney came over something like
ten ycara ago he created a stir in boxing
circles everywhere, because he was looked
upon as having but one, if any, equal In
the world Burge was not considered asgood
as Carney was in bis day, but when the
latter came to America a few years ago to
contest for the world's championship
with McAulirrc, the whole pugilistic fra
ternity got excited, and a $36,000 purse
was offered for the meeting by a Coney
Island club, but there were whispers that
If Burge and McAullffe got together for
such a purse the meeting would not be
on the square, and Judge Newton withdrew
It and the battle- didn't take place. If
Valentine gets to box for one-quarter of
S3G.000 be can consider himself in prime

Six Crack Racer Dltldo tlio luterct

KittorH Handspring, With Itequllul
Jim York. Aug. -4. Horsemen nnu
racegoers from about every State In the
union are in the city to day, and this after
noon willgn down to Sbeephead Bay to see
the eighth futurity run. On the card sent
out last night the names of twenty-two
horses went down as starters, but it
not belie, e that moru than blxteen of
them will go to tile post.
There is more uncertainty about the
winner of to-day's race than any futurity
that has been run for the last three years,
six of ttie leading horses being well sup
ported by tbclr owners, trainers, and
The six cracks that will be f tartcrs are
Handspring, Requital, Hastings, Hazlet.
Axiom, ai d Applcgate. riulip J. Dwycr
Is almost certain that Handfpring will
carry off the rich prize, while he has high
hopes"of Axkim-beirg cke up. August
Belmont and Trainer J JCkJojncr pin their
faith to Hast irgs, while Dave Gideon thinks
that he has the winner in Kcquital orllazlet.
"Deacon" MtCalferty, who owns Apple
gate, is not enthusiartrc about his chances
in public, no mattO what nlsprh ate opinion
may be He lias two other starters in the
race, viz.. Jefferson and WMiard, but they
are, in the opinion of raccgotrs, outclassed
Up to this morning the laytrs of edds are
chary almut betting, but Handspring seems
to have a slight call over Hastlnge and Re
quital. Most of the bookmakers, however,
are waiting for the race to be tailed before
putting up the odds.
The track and grounds are In suiwrb
ordT, and the day looks as though It was
made to order fpr the race. The sky is
clear and a gentle southerly breeze is blow
ing ttirough the grandstand. The early
trains to tho track were well filled with
sports, eag-r to get to the stables and see
the horses for themselves, while the later
trains were packed almosLto Euffocatlon.
Many ladieB hae taken the tarlicr trains
in order to get a good seat, from which to
view the futurity of 1895.
ALL SORTS OF OPINIONS.
The dhereltj of opinions among the vari
ous trainers and horsemen Is lery great.
William Lakeland, one of the shrewdest
of horsinen, thinks that Requital will
surely win. He bases his opinion on Re
quital's race with Handspring, where the
former got halt a dozen lengths the worst
of the start.
Wyndham Walden is of the same opinion
as Lakeland. He thinks that John Hyland
will have the honor after the race of train
ing three Futurity winners Mr. Wnlden
states that Requital's work on Wednesday
Louis feluart's choice Is Handspring.
Handspring's races, he says, were consist
ent nil the season, having been only de
John H Huggins thinks that the race lays
between Hastings and Requital, giving
preference to the former. He added: "I
have King of Bohemia there myself, and
Eph Snedeker, one of the shrewdest men
in the business, faors Requital.
Matt Byrnes says that Requital has a
mortgage on th race. He w'ould not be
surprised to see Mr. Gideon's horses. Re
quital and Hazlet, first and second
Byron McClelland is positive that Hand
spring is the winner. Mr. McClelland
watched Handspring and Axiom In their
work on lat Wednesday, and he states that
It was one of the best trials he ever
James Brown said. "Why, there's only
Handspring in the race."
CharlicPleasant, Lucky Baldwin's trainer,
said "I think Handspring is a sure winner."
Billy Donahue: says: "If Requital has
made all the Improvement they say he has
he'll win out, but I am with Hastings."
nORSES AT THE TRACK.
Every candidate for Futurity honors was
given some work this morning. Most of the
colts n ere breezed a quarter or a furlong
to test their lUDgs and unlimber their Joints.
Applegate, withagoodweightup, worked
easier than in his trial move, and seemed
full of running, although ho was not sent
for speed or time. Hazlet and Requital
were given a slow canter, followed by a
lively gallop. Both went smooth and caught
the fancy of trainers.
Hastings also came in for a snareof atten
tion as he breezed a furlong orso in masterly
fashion, while Crescendo, the big Califor
nia colt, came down past the greensward of
the lawn, full of fire, and hard held by his'
boy to restrain him from doing too fast
work. Silver II and NImrod also did slow
work, and Wlshard, Refugee, Merry Prince,
and Jefferson all took short spins.
Handspring, the big chestnut son of Han
over, came out on the track early with
Axiom, and after a slow canter was al
lowed to do a gallop without urging. He
covered a quarter of a mile In 25 seconds,
without an effort, and pulled up, ready to
go the Futurity distance. Axiom also
moved well, but Handspring caused the
trainers and stablemen who saw his move
to whistle slowly and shake their heads as
if if they thought the race, as far as the
winner, is concerned, was all over.

Philadelphia went Into fourth pkice yes
terday by lxatiug Louisille twice, and
the fact that Boston did not play. The
Quakers arc about 75 points behind Balti
more and Cleveland, and. It seems, can
hardly bo In It for the penant. Yet there
are those who are predicting that before
t he race is over they will be found close to
tho heels of the leaders.
Cleveland and Baltimore will both doubt
less make a mighty iffort to win to-day.
Tho clubs are tied for first place. The
Clevelaods Beeni to have the harder task be
fore them. They hac to go against the
Quakers, while Baltimore meets Cincin
nati on her own stamping ground.
The Senators started off well in their
first game at Baltimore yesterday, and
there was hope among the cranks here until
the fifth Inning that they were going to
slop the Orioles In their long winning
streak, but when the Baltimoreans piled
up three in the fifth and two in the sixth
everybody gae up and left the bulletins
Bill Hassamer finishes with the Sew
tors to-day. He will no doubt be heartily
received by his friends on this occasion.
It is understood that Bill has promised
those who came out to-day a sample of
the kind of ball he is going to put up when
be becomes a Colonel.
Baltimore baseball critics think Mana
ger Schmelz has made another good bar
gain in getting Joe Corbctt. Speaking of
this young man's work in the second game
in that city yesterday, the Sun says: He
was presented to do battle with McMahon
and, considering that it waB his first ap
pearance in the League, the boy did very
well. The home club's hard hitters, in
fact, could do little with him, and bad he
been supported at all decently, he might
have made things very interesting. He
has plenty of speed, good control and a
quick curve, that is -ery deceptive.

The entries for the twenty-mile road race
to be run next Wednesday will close at 12
o'clock to-night While about every bi

part in the coming event, a very large num-
ber from Baltlmoreand other towns close
at hand are expected to try speed and en

all the details for the event will be settled.

The pacing horse Bumps, though he has
not gone as fast as some of the other harness
horses that have done wonderful work this
year, is in one sense the most remarkable
horse of them all. Be started the season
without a record. Now he has a mark ot

Like all forms of.sport, bicycling has de
veloiieil a new set of experiences, says on
exchange. In baseball, for Instance, it is
said of "buttT fingered" plaers that they
"couldn't- catch a cold" or "couldn't hit a
balloon." Every form of siwrt must have
its own kind ot slang.and that t tho cyclist
is fairly good. In- discussing tho relative
merits of two racers- on the track, for In
stance, it Is usually said of one tliat ho "can
rido rings around the other," which means,
or course, that he can stop on tho track and
describe circleB and htilL win the -race.
That expression has taken the place of
"ride him to a standstill," which Is not es
sentially bicycle talk.
"Pulling his leg" has a bicycle applica
tion, and is ussd when one rider "goes out"
ahead ot another and coaxes all the 6pecd
out of him. "Can't rid? fast enough to keep
warm" npplis to lots of wheelmen and
needs no explanation. "Scorchero," of
course, are essentially bicyclists, and the
word came into general use with the a ppear
ance of the Idiots, who "scorch" through
tho streets and iarks, to the great danger
of the lives of other iieople. ."Winning
hands down" is winning so easily as not
to have hold the handle' bars. "Riding
around the clock" is riding for twenty four
hours, which lots of the blcjclers are be
ginning to do.
"O, you'e got a tack in your tire" and
"Say, mister, your wheels don't track"
mean that the iwrson addressed is "off his
has"," or doesn't know what he Is talking
about. There are many other expressions
in the bicycle vernacular, and additions are
Iwlng made c ery day.
TltACK AND STABLE.
There was not a horseman in Washing
ton last night who was not talking about
the Futurity, to be run to-day. There was
nothing in the race except Handspring,
according to thejudgraentoftwooutof every
three who v i mured a guess as to the result.
This is the eighth time this event-iias be-en
run. The first Futurity was run in 1888.
The dlbtance Is thre-e-quartcra of a mile.
With one exception, tile race o f to-day
will be worth more moneythan ever before.
The value of the race each rear has beenas
188b, $41,200; 1880, 554,850; 1S90,
$U7,U7fi; lb91, $G1,975; 16U2, $40,750;
1803, $40,185; 1894. $49,010; 1895,
The. wiuncrs of the Futurity, with their
weights, jockeys, and time, have been as
Proctor Knott. 112, Barnes, 1;15 1-5;
Chaos, 109, Day, 1 16 4 5; Potomac 115,
Hamilton, 1:14 1-5; His Highness, 130. J.
McLaughlin, 1:15 1-5; Moreno. 118. Hay
wood, 1:12 1-5; Domino. 130, Taral,
1 12 1 5; Butterflies, 112, Griffin, 1 11.
Four times the favorite has won the Fu
turity, nnd three times the favorite has
lost It. Proctor Knott was a 7 to 5 lavor
lle In 188, and won, Salvator running sec
ond. In 1889 St. Carlo was favorite at 5
to 2 but Chaos won at 8 to 1. In 1890
Potomac was favorite at 13 to 5 and won
In 1891 Dagooel was favorite at 5 to 2,
but His Hishucas, at 7 to 2, won In 1892
Lady Violet was favorite at 11 to 5, but
Marello won at 5 to 2. In 1893 Domino
was favorite at 6 to 5 and won, and in
1894 Butterflies, a 4 to 5 favorite, won.
According to this the favorite of to-day
Is doomed to lose.
Joe Patchcn has disposed of Robert J.
and John R. Gentry, but another horse has
loomed into sight that seems to be able to
give him a race, and It is probable that
the harness horse brfcrade will not rest
content until the new comer has been tried
against him. This new candidate for king
of the turf is Fidol He started the season
with a mark of 2:10 1-1, and before any
of the trotters or pacers had been half-way
seasone'd paced a mile at Davenport, Iowa,
in the wonderful time of 2 05 1-2. He has
paced many heats In races slnco that time
very fast whenever It has been necessary
for him to do so to win, and recently he
look a record ot 2 04 1-2, and even this
from the way he has beeu going seems to
be quite within the limit of his speed. It is
not unreasonable to believe that the horse
that beats FldoI will have to put in at least
a heat or two under 2 04, and none of them
have done that so far this year, though it
is claimed Patchen can do it if he has to.
The marvelous performance of the fonr-year-old
marc Bcnzetta has set the whole
trotting horse fraternity to talking. Her
secoudheatatBuffaloIn2 07 1-2 was looked
upon as a splendid performance, but when
she was pushed out by Klamath in the fourth
heat In 2 06 3-1, she registered the fact
thatshe Is a worthy foe for any ot the trott
ers of the year, not excepting Azote, Albr
orany of the rest of them. Benzelta opened
the season with a record ot 2:12 3-4. She
appears to be about tho only trotter, now
that the fast ones of last year seem to be
out of it, that can give the honest old Azote
a race, and as this is a season of match
making it Is within possibility that the
two may be brought together.

CiiHlilnjr a Check, 3Inrellles.
Wehad tomakeour way through a crowd
occupying a iagre room or small hall in
which business was conducted. This hall
was filled with people, some of whom were
there to look after their own or other peo
ple's affairs, and others of whom had obvi
ously dropiied in for a casual chat. Almost
all were smoking cigarettes, an aavusement
v hich they shared with a good many of the
bank clerks. When we had got through
this crowd my friend and host presented
his check at a guichet. The man behind
the guichet gave him a metal disk.stamped
with a number. Armed with this, my
friend made his way to another guichet,
behind which stood, not a clerk, but an or
dinary porter, wearing the livery of the
bank. This porter had bis hands full of
similar metal disks. After a weary wait
ing be called out the number say 302-on
my friend's disk.
Then my friend advanced, identifying his
check by another number, obtained at the,
first guichet, and then received his money,
not in the currency or form which he wished
for, but in such shape as the porter had at
band to dispense from the authorities above
him. Then some of the notes, being only
locally negotiable, my friend had to go to a
third guichet, to see if they could be
changed into negotiable notes. On occa
sions this is impossible, and tho unfortu
nate holder ot the check has either to leav
part of the money he has come for until
a favorable opportunity, or accept what
ha can get on the chance of paying it away
or getting it changed or both, with 6orae c4
his tradespeople. Beyond this, there is
no clearing house system; each bank makes
a charge for cashing a check on another
bank, and these charges practically swal
low up the tiny, amount of interest noml
nally allowed on a constant balance. And
this is how tho daily routine or banking is
conducted In the First Bank of Marseilles.
Senator Quny'M Carrier I'lueon.
When Senator Quay started for his home
In Beaver last Sunday evening part of his
luggage consisted of a neat box. In which
was a trained carrier pigeon. The bird
was tho prgperty of Alan G. Frazier, a
bright lad, whose home is at 3812 Spruce
street, and ho had intrusted the flyer to
Senator Quay with the words: "Release
Her at Beaver, and If she returns to Phila
delphia it will mean that you are to win
the State chairmanship fight." Sergcant-al-Arms
Harrab, who accompanied the
Senator, promised 'to take charge of the
pigeon and start it on the homeward Jour
ney. Young Frazier lofts his bird over the
stable belonging to Mr. Egan at Thirty
eighth street and Woodland avenue, nnd it
was hero that he kept constant watch for
the bird, on whose leg band is the letter
"F" and the number "12,991." Yester
day the pigeon flew into a window of the
city hall at the bureau of surveys. Real
Estate Assessor Flood was sitting at the
table on wnlch the bird alighted. It was
almost exhausted, but young Frazier was
notified, nnd last night he was the happiest
boy in West Philadelphia. Philadelphia

The police regulations of August 8, 1892,

Moro Ilelpliis: Hands) Working; for the
A question that has been agitating of
late both general and State federations of
women's clubs Is how to more effectively
advance the cause of the woman whose
home is in the small country town or vil
lage. The city-bred woman has at band every
advantage, every opportunity for advance-me-ut
and n-if help. All the new Ideas ai-d
contrivances for enlightening ber mentally
or assisting ber to more readily perform
her daily round of duties, whatever may
be the latter' character, quickly find "their
to tbc inbabitants-thereof by means of the
daily pipers, libraries, clubs and other
mediums. Whereas In the out-of the-way
places, far from travel or dally inter
course to any extent with the outer world,
the members of the gentler sex must wait
for their new ideas and appliances until
the latter have passed through a goodly
amount of time or space, or perhaps never
arrive at alL
To remedy this state of affairs the up-to-date
me'tnbers of the women's federa
tions have been putting their clever beads
together and trvjng to plan some way of
better equalizing things generally in the
feminine world. They say tliat it is not
the plaee of the federations as a whole to
do more than discuss the matter, becaura
not only are tbe'lr offleers ocxupied with
their Immediate work, but they live far
away from sueb thinly populated districts
and do not know what Is really needed.
The federations have come to the conclu
sion tbc ellv clubs sliould.be the motors;
and to adequately reaeb their country sis
ters, the members of these mttrouolitan
organizations must, e-oliectivelj and indi
vidually, lend themselves to the project
of putting better opportunities in the
way of the woman who from ebolce or
necvsslty pass their lives in out-or-the-way
The most effe-etlve way of doing any
practical good is Ibrough the medium of
elubs or societies, where the gre-atest num
ber of Individuals can be reached with
least outlay of time and effort.
So It has been suggested that as the es
tablished city associations among the fair
sex are beginning to want some form of eth
ical work, a good opening is presented to go
and labor In forming clubs of all kinds in
distant suburban towns and villages, where
there Is a goodly supply of feminine ability
and desire, but lack of organization or un
derstanding of Just how to go about-organizing.
It is proposed that individual town
clubs undertake to form clubs similar In
character to their own In suburban places
within reach of their members.
For Instance, the president of a literary
club will present the subject to her col
leagues and ask for volunteers to found a
club devoted to the study of books. This
enterprise must necessarily be undertaken
by refined, genuine and enthusiastic wo
men, willing to put aside ease and go into
country districts to instruct and persuade.
For women on farms and In villages some
times have narrow horizons, and might not
want a club unless they were persuaded.
Very likely some of them would not realize
at once how great an advantage such a
widening of their outlooks would in time
become to them. This the city sister must
make clear. A great help In forming such
out-of-town clubs promises to be the "trav
eling library," w hlch is already an accom
plished fact in New York State, and prob
ably will soon be throughout the Union.
The idea originated with the public li
braries department of the State University
of New York, whereby tax paying com
munities without libraries, may, by con
forming to certain rules , borrow books for
a limited time from the State. Twenty
traveling libraries are now In circulation
in New York State, with 125 applications
within the first eighteen months, showing
how greatly tho privilege is appreciated
by country citizens. Wherever the traveling
library goes the literary club can thrive,
and the possibility of getting at standard
and recent literature of all kirds will be
of the greatest assistance In founding and
sustaining clubs of various alms.
There is little doubt that the scheme ot
the city women to aid and encourage her
out-of town neighbor will meet with im
mediate and efficient approval and practical
support. The two classes will meet on com
mon ground, and while aiding her neighbor
in one direction, the city woman will find
that she herself is being enlightened along
other lines and that the benefit will prove

The resolution was laid on the table.
When the library committee was called
on to make its report, Mr. Calkin, who Is

"I came to this clubhouse a Sunday or

to consult a Bible, but could-not find any.
We searched everywhere without success.
I finally secured one from the barkeeper.
That was the only one In the house."
Mr. Calkin an proposed later on that
his resolu'lon permitting the sale of re
fretbme'nls on Sundays be taken from the
table and referred to the houe committee.
Mr. Calkin said that In offering this reso
lution he had only the interests of the
club at heart; he was Instigate-d by no per
sonal fee'llng, and that there was not a
better Republican in Harlem than he.
Vice President Lincoln A. Stuart, who
presided, said the club must vote first to
take the motion from the table. This was
done, and, before Mr. Calkin could offer a
motion to refer It to the hou"e committee,
Washington Win so r made a motion to
table the resolution again, and it was
promptly seconded by Mr. Thompson. The
motion was carried.
Mr. Robinson said he was glad Mr. Calkin
bad searched for tli" Bible and found It,
and hoped he bad discovered some valuablo
truths in it.
"Let us buy a Bible," some one said.
"Wc have one," another replied.
"No," Interposed Chairman Stuart:
