Quick Time Made by Parks Between
Baltimore and Washington.
Jno Hours mid rorty-Mjven and One
Bnlf Minutes' Record ql "Waul
nnd Wood Fhster Knocked Out.
At present Mere seem s considerable doubt
as to who holds tlie Baltimore-Washington
road record Tlie tact that there "arc ;vo
routes between the two cities helps mater
ially to inuease the doubt and by do
means akls in the solution or the problem
aa to which of the several riders belongs
the record claimed
One road via Ashton is said by some
to be fort -nine and hy others only forlj
three nitlos long The other road is lia
Laurel and is said to be between thtrty
mne and lorry miles long and by far the
roughest and most hilly and is generally
conceded to be the -worst highway In this
section of the country
.Now, about two j ears ago, L C. "Ward,
formerly of this city, but now residing
ai Colorado Springs. Colorado, claimed to
hae made the run via Ashtun m the re
markable short time of two hours and
fortv minutes This record was cry much
do j bled, even by the wheelmen v. ho belt?
the -Aafhes at their end
The best previous record wasHnadc by J.
C Wood in 3 hours and 29 minutes, and he
was paced the entire distance.
The Centurj Road Club of America, which
organisation controls the official road
records o! America, allowed Wahl'fl claim
Now here is where that allowed record
jr placed in doubt Harry Park, one of
the best local riders and trick "wheel per
formers, made two attempts last fall to
break tlie record, and the best he could
do to Ashton, twenty -live miles from Balti
more, was two hours, and he quicklj ar
rived at the conclusion that the remaining
eighteeuniiles could not be inade in less than
forty-mue minutes, "which would hac to
be done in order to better the record al
io wed, it iwald be a phjsical impossibility
to do it.
Parks wa3 not alone in hisdoubt aboutthis,
hut many local riders agreed that it could
not be done in the tune claimed over that
particular road.
Theltrst twenty -five miles, which areover
innumerable steep hills and steady up-grade,
would have to be ridden in one hour and
fortv-five minutes and tlie remaining eigh
teen nilii'S in one hour and four minutes,
which is generally conceded to be a prac
tical impossibility.
On the 13th instant Mr. John J. Flster,
one of our hardest road riders, after a
mot-t creditable nde, made the rule via the
Ashton road in S hours 17 1-1 nimutes,
or eleven minutes better time than
"Woods' record llerrow claims the Baltimore-Washington
record, bit in view of
the fact that the Century Club will not
recognize any record unless below the
time made by Wahl upon which record it
had officially decided, he had his trouble
lor nothing
On July 10, IfiOl.l'arks made the run
ever the old Washington road vja Lauiel
m 3 hours 4 minutes. On tills ride he
was duly checked at the start enrouie and
at fmiMi
I'pou making claims for the record
Parks was informed by the Century Club
that it mu-t decline to allow the claim,
because it did not surpass Wahl's When
the club was informed that the ride was
made over an entirely different road, it
replied that it allowed records only for
the quickest time made from point to
point, regardles of the road taken, and
which latter matter was left to the dis
cretion of the rider
Abiding hy this decision. Parks on Fri
day last succeeded in making the run lia
Laurel in two hoursaud forty icvenand one
half minutes, being two minutes better
than WahlV claimed record and thirty min
ute better than rieter's locally accepted
rister now claims that Parks did not
break his (Fister's) record because he did
ride over the same road over which he made
his record of three hours and seventeen and
one-qunrter minutes. But it teems "without
doubt th.it Parks is entitled to his record
because he was not riding to break raster's
record, but to make a Baltimore-Washington
recoid, and which he did, and of which
he claims to have ample proof. It remains
to be seen if the Centurj Road Club will
officially accept Parks' record.

(Special to The Times )
St. Louis, Mo , July 21 A crowd of
5,000 to day saw the Browns bat Pitcher
Mercer a little harder than that youug
man was ever batted before in his career
ab a twirler.
The local men rolled up twenty-one hits
before they were ready to quit.
The Browns got a big lead in the first
two innings, but the Senators kept up a
fusilade of hits off Ehret, till they had
not only overcome the lead, but pasted the
Browns. That was in the seventh inning
In the eighth the Browns scored eight
more runs, clinching the game as Ehret had
been removed from the box in the fifth,
and Kissinger substituted The young
twirler again did all that was asked of him.
Manager Schmelz employed a St Louis
youth named Woerlin to play short stop,
and he fielded m excellent Mjle, besids
making a good hit that started the vis
itors' rally in the fourth -inning
Roger Connor was loudly cheered through
out the game, as it was probably his last
appearance with the Browns, "Shcehan,
of the Little Kocks, taking his place.

Sudden Jump of theSpiderH from Sev
enth to Flrt-t I'luce.
The race for the pennant is a hot one
During the past " eek there have been many
changes in the position of the teams .
Two weeks ago the Cleveland Spiders were
in seventh place, a lie with the Phillies.
A week later they were fourth, with fifty
six points less than the Baltimores, who
had a percentage of 621 To-day they are
the leaders, with only an increase in per
centage of thirty-two points, and as a re
sult the three "C's" are separated.
The Baltimores having been going up and
down the ladder with the regularity of a
bad time piece Yesterday morning they
were second, six- points behind the Spi
ders, their percentage being 591, whereas
one week ago they were G21, they then
being thirtj -three points ahead of their
nearest rival.
Pittsburg went down one round during
the week, although they are only five
points less than on July 14, when they
had a percentage of 588, leading the
Bostons by five points
The representatives of the Hub have not
fared so well duung the past week, their
deieats in Cmcinrtati being a severe blow.
They were a good third one week ago. hav
ing a percentage of .583; now they are
seven points less.
Cincinnati was tie with Chicago, having
563 points to her credit, ior fifth place.
The week's work finds her in the same po
sition, and her standing, 5G9 points, shows
how easily positions are shifted about.
Anson and his Colts failed to show any
improvement "whatever, dropping down to
sixth place, losing twelve points, but they
are only forty-six points behind the lead
ers, whereas "a week ago they were lif ty
eight less than the first team.
There is no change with the Quakers.
They were seventh then, with .518 per
centage. Now they have but .536.
The remainder of the clubs maintain the
same positions. Now York, however, in
creased her percentage to .522 from .192,
while the Senators fell off three points.
The Browns increased their percentage
from .338 to .351, and are only thirty-six
points behind the Senators, who three
weeks ago were 111 points to the best.
Even though they captured several games,
the Colonels really lost six points from a
percentage of .194.
The Cost of Patriotism.
Did it over occur to any of you, as you
watch the flags floating over the various
buildings in the city those where they are
kept waving from tho flagstaff all the
lime that it costs a good deal of money to
keep Old Glory constantly waving in the
air? Although tlie flags are made of Btrong
material, their constant whipping in the
wind wears them out very fast. 0"er In
dependence Hall in Philadelphia the stars
and stripes are expected to be always wav
ing, and to do this from six to eight flags
are used up every year. They are constant
ly mended and there is a 6torm-day flag
and a fair-day flag and one for very special
occasions, but even with all this care they
wear out very fast. The handsomest flag,
which is used on holidays, is fifty feet
long and costs $36; the storm-day flag is
only twenty feet long and $17 buys it,
while the usual pleasant-day flag measures
forty leet and coats $30. New York

AimloMan Club Regatta Note.
The sporting writers for the Metropolitan
truly said in the reports to their respective
papers that the last regatta of the National
Association or Amateur Oaismen. held on
Saratoga Lake, on AVednesday and Thurs
day last, was noted for more close finishes
and expprt oarsmanship than many of
us predecessor?
It really had a number of what we know
as "heart disease" Jinishcs Take, for
instance, thelinlsli of the double, wherein
Hawkins and Nagle crossed the line just
ten feet ahead of their neatest competitors
Then the intermediate eight. iherc the
Wnchusett crew "won from the Montrose,
of Philadelphia, by an even two seconds,
the winner lowering the recoid 7 36 1-2
by three seconds The Montrose crew will
more than likely come to the Potomao
river regatta
Then the finish of the institute senior
four, which won from the mighty Winne
pegs by just three feet, in 8 13 1-2, five
seconds faster than the Argonauts won
in last year, and which latter crew, by tho
way, is the one that rowed at Henley and
lost by only two feet
But the climax or the "whole affair and
the grandest of all eight-oared races was
the senior eight, in Tvhich Uiree crews
rowed nearly side by sade all the way up
the mile and a half cotirsei and the Bohem
ians finished two feet ahead of Triton,
which latter led the Miuncsotas by eight
inches only. ' .j
AJ1 these are mentioned to show our
local oarsmen what a good object lesson
the oulooking oarsmen had, and what we
may expect at our own regatta, as sev
eral of these crews expect to come hero
for August 21.
The number of crew entries nnd actual
starters was smnller than upon former
occasions of the National Regatta, but the
'Quality of the work of those who started
amply made up for the lack in numbers.
Now that August 2 1 has been fixed upon
as tho date for holding the Potomac River
Regatta, the local oarsmen are taking lots
of practice, preparing to meet each other
and the swift couTCts" from other cities,
of whom there promises to be a number
The committees representing tlie three
clubs are good working ones and will make
a success of the affair.
Tho organization of the joint committee
during the week resulted m the election of
the following officers President William
M Offley.oi rotomac Boat Club: secretary,
Louis A Fischer, of Analostau Boat Club,
and treasurer, Alexander Grant, of Co
lumbia Athletic Club.
The nine members composing the joint
committee "will go nctnelj to work to
raise the amount neces-ary to grve a re
gatta, such as our river has long been noted
Of course, the chief obstacle to over
come and the greatest difficulty lying in
the vnj is the "money" question, where
und how to get it The merchants and
others of our city hnvo al"was been liberal
to the committees on similar occasions and
it) is hoped that the calls of the committee
'may have liberal and prompt response.
Personal calls will be made soliciting sub
scriptions to the regatta, when all will
be given an opportunity to help the pro
motion of an object which will give pleas
ure to a large number of staj at-homes and
visitors and at the same time encourage
the local clubs in their worthy efforts.
A meeting of the joint committee will be
held at the Columbia Athletic Club house
on Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock to transact
further business in connection with tho
Several crews a nd scullers from out of to vn
have signified their intention of coming
here to compete.
The regatta will be made up or the
following events Junior tingles; junior,
seuior and lightweight rour-oared shells;
and junior and intermediate "eights."
The lightweight four class will call for
oarsmen weighing 125 or lets, and this
class was originally formed in this cjty
aud makes a nio&t interesting feature of a
regatta. The chief object of the class
is to give the lightweight meu of the clubs
an opportunity to row and without any 6uch
handicap as the ordinary events bring
out in the shape ofheavy .mdmiddleweights,
agaiust whom the little fellows would
have but little show to wiu.
Capt. Baker, of the Columbia Athletic
Club, Js very fortunate in having so many
good rowing men to select from in making
up his crews for the Potomac River Regatta.
The club regatta on Wednesday last made
the club's strength hi rowing material more
apparent man ever before, not only from
the uumber of men, but in the excellent
"closo finish" races they rowed.
The new "chippie" crew is making great
headway in practice and each day brings
tho men closer together in their work, so
that in a few days they will have that
ready swlugand machine-like movement for
width C. A. C. crews have always been
noted. The Crew is composed of Jafpielte,
stroke; Nolau, 3; Shoemaker, 2, and
Carter, bow, and this will more than likely
form the junior crew for the regatta.
The senior four is at work taking more
than usual hard practice, for it does not
seem to have regained that lively swing
and steady kiel fctr which it was noted
two jearsago. It has the strength which
now only needs toning down into working
shape. The crew is rowing Eaton, stroke;
Lewis, 3; Maun, 2; and Hlunt, bow.
The junior eight will be an exceptionally
strong crew, the make-up of which is not
jet decided upon The crew will be made
up from among Clarke. Clapp, Craig, Shoe
maker, WelN. T.illmadge, Sumsford, Par
sons. Monney, Boyle. Walsh and Moar.
It will he a heavy crew.
In Boyle and Moar the club has two ex-
' cellcnt scullers, who will gie all corners
n lively time going over the course on Au-
ttt 24.
The regatta and hop were such a great
' Miccess that Capt. Baker hopes to repeat
! them at an early day.
Dewdtiey and Wells are two good men
who woi-ld strengthen "either eight.
It is more than likely that Taussig, of
Cornell, and one of the candidates for Cor
nell's big eight which went over to Henley,
will row No. 7 in the junior eight His
strength and experience will materially
strengthen the crew.
Seldom has the Potomac Boat Club been
better prepared at the beginning or a
season for a good hard campaign than it
is now. The number of good men Is ex
ceptionally large and every crew should
fill well.
Eight new members were recently
elected, making thirty-three new members
in two months, and all are anxious to row,
and there will be no trouble in getting all
the rowing they may want.
Gormley and Bauby are earnest, hard
workers, who will deserve a seat in one or
more crews

A number or changes have been made in
the junior eight, trying the men in dlffcr-e-iit
positions, so that each man may get
what he wants.
Archer is doing good work in the eight.
Corbiu Ball is another man "nho takes his
practice with a relMi.
C Oliver hopes to get a single to suit
him in time to row m the August regatta.
The club will give a regatta in a week or
no,and some good contests are promised.

The selection of the licht-weight four
oared race in place or a gig fcr the regatta
has proved to be a rcpular move, as It is
believed that this and the other two clubs
will make a most interesting race among
themselves. The club has rome good mater

regatta will be a race between the two

meets the Defender over a triangular course

sail than that under which she appeared
yesterday She will also have a. b?ser

that the sail areaadded by theseeba ages will

of the result in a hard wind, but the public
