The Amateur Athletic Union has declined
Eddie Donovan's ofrer to run 100 yards
Kainst Wefcrs to decide which is the fast
est sprinter. It is held by the Union that it
would be nciiiisl its rules to permit such a
contest. Donovan is a limit "-Mon.il, mid
offered to run Wefcrs simply for the amuse
ment of the thing. As for a money contest,
Donovan announces that he is ready to run
any man in the world for whateveramoiint
a challenger may name, iroidcd it is
nough to warrant uiin training.
It is suggested that tile sudden determina
tion to keep Valkyrie here may lie part o(a
plan to help SirCharlesItosenndhiri new cup

they are confident they will win the events
for which they intend to enter.
The big bicjele meeting at Denver will
take place on October IT, 18 and 19. The
events looked forward to by wheelmen are
tlie one mile and five mile national cham
pionships. Ilaldlias won two of thesecliam

thought Tom Cooper, who has been doing
wonderful riding since lie made his appear
ance last June, will give Itald the race
of his lire.
Betting on the Yale Cambridge games
has begun. The Americans arc favorites
though it is believed the contest will be a
close one. It is admitted that the foreigners
will win rour and maybe five or the eleven
events on the card, which embraces a 100
jard run; 300-yard run; 140-yard run; 860
yard run; one mile run; 120-yard hurdle
race on the cinder path; 120-yard hurdle
race on turf; running high jump; running
broad Jump; putting the 10 pound shot,
and throwing the 10-pound hammer.

that they willbe kept out ofajobfora year.

LATEST THINGS FOIl AUTUMX.
Splendid Display at the Opening of
S. Kiinn, Souk A: Co.
Throngs of shoppers, miles or rainbow
ribbon, mountains, or silks, clouds of
fh ecy lace, and gro es of graceful, waving
palms, and banks or flowers, emphasized
the celebration or the rirst anniversary
and fall opening of S. Knnn, Sons A Co.,
in their splendid quarters, at the corner
or Eighth street and Market space, to
day. Irom the opening or the doors till late
in the day tides of shoppers ebbed and
Howcd through the fcrn-friuged aisles,
eddied around the arious connters and
murmured appreciatively about the things
they saw. The store was picturesque In
the arrangement or wares, restive Willi
dci-oratlous and gay with callers.
The day signalized the opening or
several departments. The art and millin
ery departments received their Just share
or approbation. The Times was told that
the department or hats, with its flowing
ribbons, nodding plumes, and riocks or
slurred birds was inferior to none in the
land. The art department or embroideries
and all kinds or elaborate needlework
stirred the patrons to praise. The cloak
deiiartment was given lots or attention.
It appears this season under new and
efrective management. Tlie upholstery
deiiarlment was approvingly inspected and
theilress and .silk goods would have raised
their rates could they have understood
what was said about them. The growth
or this rinii has been remarkable, and
when the reporter wanted to know how
it did it, the manager said: "Ability,

stock, advertising, Just prices, advertising,
judicious buying and advertising."

The last act of the minstrel show billed
at Warrenlon, Va., for last Wednesday
night wasplajvd In Judge Kimball's court
Frank Norman thought that he would
soar to fortune by organizing a colored
minstrel troupe. He secured two men and
two women as performers, and billed the
aggregation for a 6how at Warrenton, Va.,
on Saturday evening.
Warrenton Is sKtj-one miles from Wash
ington, and Norman had not the money to
get his actors there. So he engaged two
one-horse cabs Irom Philip Barber, the
latter agreeing to furnish the vehicles,
drive one, and make the round trip, 122
miles, six persons, for $13.50.
When tlie actors arrived at Centrcville,
nineteen miles from Warrenton, the horses
broke down and the Thespians walked the
rest or Ihe way. The audience was light and
alter pa j ins rent and printing the man
ager only had 52.50 lert to pay the cabman.
They walked back to Centrcville, where
In the meantime one or the horses had died,
and the cabman, being promised his money
on his arrival in town, hauled the show
back to Washington.
The money. However, was not forth
coming, and Ihe cabman swore out a war
rant lor the actor-manager.
Alter hearing the evidence the court
dismissed the case.

The boxers and their friends are In a state
of excitement to-day over the outlook for a
rattling and determined mill when Hilly
McMillan and Paddy Gorman face each
other In the ring-to-night.
As to the probable outcome of the fight
there is a (inference of opinion, as there
glwuyn is, in such events. The men who
know McMillan-best are confident he will
win, and are backing their opinion witli
Tlie Gormaiiitca say they are sure Paddy
will down the Washington man, but with
all of thelralleged faith they arc-demanding
big odds tor their money, and thus far
have refused lo put up until theygct il. Sev

und Conmll will second McMillan. Gor
man was below weigh! this morning. He
nill have as advisors, Billy Woods and
Ted Alexander, both, experienced men.
As to the rercree, that seems lo be an
open question to-day-. Corbett, who has

To morrow Is the day set by G-iv. Culber

legislate Corbett and Fitzsimmons out oT
Hit-State or Texas. TneacllouoriheTe-xans
means a great deal, nut only to Ihe-e two
distinguished IndiiidunLs, but 10 the present
pugilistic fraternity al large. If Gov.
Culberson's plan goes through, the op
ponentsof Ihebotcrs in every othc-r section
left oiien lo ttiiiii can say. "If Texas
wouldn't have thctn, whyshould we?"
Deprived of Ihe rlsh I toengagc-in a boxing
encounter, Cotbelt could lay back oil his
championship and fcnslam frolic rrom its
ciimluineliLs tor an hile-, nodoubt, but sooner
or later there will have to be a right, perhaps
in Ihe old, surreptitious way. Used to train

and protected by the law, a ml the people,
what an experieme it would be- lo Jim to
sneak nway in the dead of a cold winter's
night and go trudging around in mud, sleet,
siiow and rain, huiitinz for some secluded,
lonesome righting ground. ffar away from
civilization, his eery sleji fraught nilli
danger to liberty and e en life.
This is ihe was- the old 1 liners did, and
the ery l':iri!.-liM and dangers that at
tended their movemcuu were a part of the
rascinntlon and glors- of an old lime prize
fight. Tlie fighter who won a battle under
theold conditions was a hem Indeed. The
fighters of to da- are of a.illffi rent treed
of mankind, theold timcrssny. The-ydotiot.
however, despair of Ihe lite or the prize
ring. There will be pr(ze .flghls, law or no
law, just as in the days"or yore, tut the
fighters will not be the Corbel's aDul Fitz

whether they are ienullted logo ahectland
have their controvers3 out In Dallas or
whether they are not both Corl-tt and
Fltzslmmons continue tuiuir there is going
to be a fight. Even to-day they both profess
to be hopeful that they will not be shut out
of ihe Lone Slar State, but it they are they
will fight If they lme to fight In private.
It is quite safe to say that Corbett and
Fitzslmmons don't mean to right In private.
Thero is too much money in a meetlrg be
tn cent hem ror eit heron hem tocontemplate
seriovfcdynnysucb thing. Besides, champion
ship battles are not rought that way. It is
entirely sare to predict that ir Corbett
and Fitzslmmons fight they will come to
gether at a place and time that any in
dividual who has money- to pay his way will
be welcome. It things get to a point where
a right would haeto be held luprUalc. that
ract in Itself would anord Jim and Bob a
very excellent reason ror staying apart, and
some racetious people sayjhat they would

Bob Fitzsliiiinons l.as asked Joe Choynskl

There was said to be a lot of money

so it is said, in which lie will define his
poEitiou as regards Fitzslinmous. Texas,
the referee and oilier men a nd matters. The
champion is expectesl to arrive in this city
Agnin the report is abroad that Corbett
and Brady have set their hearts on having
Tim Hurst re'eree the big fight, if It comes
off. nnd again Fitzsimmons is out with the
declaration that, under no circumstances,
wi'l he agree to Hurst's acting.
While all the talk about Lawyer Tricnd
and the Fitzsimmons end of the stake for
the big fight is going on. it may be interest
ing to know that Fitzsimmons says that
Friend did not put up a dollar for him, but
that he simply acted as an agent of a rich
New York man, who is friendlyto Bob, and
who did not want to be known in the trans
action, nnd that Friend could nottake down
the $5,000, aboot which he is talking.
A New York paper Fays that the attempt
to tie up the Fitzslmmons stake money just
at this time has a peculiar look, and adds
that Brady and Corbett did all in their
power to avoid a match; that they have
done all in their power to get out of the
match, and that they are now doing every
thing they can to prevenf Ihfc match taking

When the sun goes down to-night the
National League season will be over.
Baltimore will agaln.tly the flag, an em
blem for which they madc-.n gallant fight.
The team has not IhcbesLrccord, u,sa whole,
but Its members piuyed ball from start to
finish, never lagging when behind.
In the right for the pennant they were
constantly and carefully schooled by a man
old in ball playing. They plajeil rast lull,
und not a man among them was a record
player. It was victory they were afler,
and they pat lortli all power to secure II.
They will finish in tenth position, and the
distinguished little statesman who has been
standing on tlie tenth round since June 21
Is glad 10 step down and out. He was a
familiar figure. The only cause for regret
is tlie fact that he was prevented from
moving rurther up the ladder.
The Seiaitors increased I heir percentage
ehr en points during the past week, and are
now .333. If they defeat Boston to day Ihev
will have a percentage of .338: but if Ihev
should lose they will have but .330 points
to their credit.
The playing of the Thlllies with the
Orioles has crcalisl considerable comment
nt their home. The press of that city has
been severe In criticism, and lias Intimated,
siirse ihcy lost two strnlght to Brooklr-,
that the Quakers really put Ihe games "to
their rivals because they could not be
beaten out for third place.
There is really t-o question as to crooked
work; they simply lost because the other
team put up the better ball, as the scores
During the week they lost nineteen points.
Cleveland lias made a great fight for the
pennant, and will make a harder one for
Ihe Temple Cup; as they have won six and
lost rive in their series with Baltimore, It
seems lo be an even thing. However, the
Orioles want the cup nlso, and Hanlon will

The games will be full of Interest, and
It is hardly possible for a repelition of last

three straight games. It Is to be hoped
that there will be no bad blood betwee-n
the teams during the contests.
Chicago, by winning j-eterday. secured
fourth position. The Colts have played e-x-eeilent
ball, when it is considered that the
team had really no good pitcher. All
their twlrlcrs seemed to he in the selling
plater class this season, and even the re
liable Hutchison was no terror to any team.
However, the team got agoing the 8th of
September, when they were in ninth place,
and each neek found them In a better .

fourth place, which they retained by good,

Looked upon in June, July and August as

season in seventh place, a comrortable dis
