There Is some talk of a special race a tone mile, between Hequitnl, Buck ilassle, and Clifford, for next Thursday. Such an event would prove the most attractive of the Shecpshead Bay meeting.

Dwyei lost heaWly to Harry Eeed last Thursday. Saturday he allowed liisspecdygcldinglo run virtually unbacked, co far as he was concerned, and his colors were first ut the finish. As there wus no Irish Keel to cut out a half in forty eight seconds in the race.llarry Heed was able to llve the mile. At the trotting races at Washington Fark, Green Bay, Wis., Friday afternoon, John S. Holmes of Oshkosh, died in bis sulky while rimshing Hie intra hent of a race. Holmes was a native of Maine; and sixty-two years of age. His home has beAnrht Oshkosh since lbBG. He was one of JM best known horsemen and drivers, havljjjj driven horses on tracks in every cltyfttf prominence in the United States and Canada. The following strained story is out about Mike Dwjer's colt, Ben Brush: "Ben Brush Is a race-horse such as Is seldom met with. He has more racing sense than most men and a good many Jockeys. He always evinced a desire to be In front, whether in walking or an exercise gallon. He wants to forge ahead Just enough to lend by a nose. In his races he does not want to lead until In the stretch, when he will shoot out and finish under the wire first. In a race not long ago Ben Brush was a 3-& favorite and Sims had the mount. The colored Jockey was riding with loose rein, and as the horses were rounding the curve a general Jostling and bumping en cued, films being pitched over the colt's head. Ben Brush ran on a few rods with the field, then stopped, turned around and walked back to where the Jockey was lying. Buch Is his intelligence." Nonparlels Will.

"We are tbe best travelers that ever came down the pike, and while Cleveland and Cincinnati are cuttng one another's throats we will knock the Temple Cup persimmon and then lie.it Baltimore for the prize and the big end of the gate money.

Five of the most famous plaj-ers in the history of the national game faced each other on the diamond recently, writes the baseball man of the St. Paul Dispatch and two of them were the opiiosing pitchers in one of tbe most memorable games ever played. The five men were Pitchers Tony Mullane, Larry Twltcliell, and Bob Carutliers, all of them famous at onetime, and Shortstop Glasscock and First Base man Charlie Comlskey. Not a great many years ago they were the most central figures In the American Association and prominentln the National League, and they all played sensational ball.

Tbe enterprise will be conducted on tbe co-operative plan, and each player will be asked to contribute to a general capital for traveling expenses. Manager Hanlon will go along as manager after the schedule has been made out. There are two leagues in England with which games could be arranged 'for several weeks and the only shadow entbe enter prise is the fact -of the early beginning ot tbe football season.

Tom Sharkey, "the sailor," will appear before New Yorkers tonight, and exhibit ills muscles to followers of the ring. St.urkey is said to possess more strength than any boxer of recent years, and his great muscles are still flexible, which is Lot characteristic of men who are endowed witli extraordinary strength- Sharkey seems Impervious to punishment, and he has stood the test or an eight-round engagement with a hitter of the ability or doe Chojnski- Those who luue seen him perforin say he strikes a terrible blow, but that he is still lacking in the skill ot the leading heavy-weights.

Up to a je.ir ago Sharkey was praetl cnltj unknown to the starting community. He hod done some lighting, to be sure, but his skill was only ki.own to his immediate mends and the little world In which he struggled. raer since bojhoul Sharkey bid preten sions to rire in the world by doing some thing great, but the opportunity never came until he got a chance to meet Jim Corbett. Alter the latter defeated the might Jolin L., Sharkej told his chums In the navy tli it he thought he could beatCcrliett aseasily as the Cnllliirulan downed the tig fellow. Sharkey's confidants did not scout the idea. Tor lliej- had sen his prowess prowd aboard tie ship, where many an ambitious boxer felt the effects of his herculean strength. One of the chums said: "Just make a play to meet him. He'll ei rtainly give j 011 the chance, I ecu use no one knows you, and they might think j-ou are easy." LEFT THE NAVY TO FIGHT. Sharkey treasured up theliint, and whenliis time 1 11 the Navy was ua, atuut ten months ago, he left the good ship, which hail put in ut Valejn, a town on the banks or the Sacramento river, and proceeded to San I-rune sco with ll.e atowed determination or making his living at the precarious occupation or prize lighting.

However, m-lore me content wis halt over, Joe was forced to acknowledge that Pharkey was the toughest Dig manhe ever encountered. As a refill of that flcht, Choynki had two ribs broken in the second round and was roughly handled throughout. Sharkej-, of course, earned the decision. On June 3 last Sharkey and Jim Williams, the neavy-weiglit champion of Salt Lake City, came together at San Francisco.

HIS PLACE WAS CELEBRATED Yet 'Arry Died In renury Was n, Kiud-lleiirtcd, Liberal Boniface und IViim thf Acme of Ilouexty und Fnlr denliiis: With Mm CuMlomers Wii an EMgllMiimiii by Birth. New York, Aug. 30. Thesiiddcn death ot Barry Hill brought to a close the earthly career of one of the best known characters rather the most widely known in the sporting lifeof America. Tho"eof tneprcs ent generation may not bring him quickly to mind, but men of a larger growth will recall the time when life was uot complete without a visit to New York at least once a year and a Journej to that metropolis was uot completely rounded without a visit lo the Five PoiuU, where Harry Hill kept his famous dance hall. That may suggest a vision of dreadful wickedness, and jet it was conducted by a mau who then, and until the day ot his death, tore the reputa tion of conducting tl)e"siuarest'' sporting resort that this country has ever known. Of course. It was not exactly the kind ot place that a Sunday-chool sujierin tendeut should attend and direct the mem bers of liU flock to patronize. It wasoneof those effervescing spots where certain conditions of human nature found their vent after midnight, and as the)- -were txiund to explode. It was, perhaps, well that the social ebullition was under the dlreciion of a mau with honest instincts, so far as the custody of otter people's prop erly was concerned. That was Hill's repu tation, and that made turn famous the country over. FAMOUS TnE COUNTRY OVER. He became one of the most familiar rigures In the public life of New York; celebrated for. his dispUy of diamonds; celebrated for his piotection of foolish mid night howlers; celebrated ror his absolute integrity in money matters; celebrated for amassing nearly one million of dollars by catering to the smaller weaknesses of man kind: celebrated for ln-lug, through his exceptional generosity, every penny he had amassed; celebrated for being a victim tptheanimoslty of thepolice.whose creature he had refused to longer be. The business which made him famous was one to which he had devoted over thirty years of his life. He ned to love to tell of his coming to this country in a sailing Vessel In 1&E0 and landing at tbe port ot Flushing, L. I. In England lie had been a trackman and a frequenter of the turf at Epsom, In which town he was liorn. It was there that George M. Wool sey, ot the old sugar manufacturing firm of nowland, Asplnwnll A Wcolsey, became acquainted with Hill, and engaged him to come to this country and take charge of his stable In Astoria. Then he ran a livery stable for a while close to the old Bull's Head Hotel on Third avenue. New York, sold horses to the Third avenue street railway. "Just starting, and drove the first car him self from theClty Hall to Harlem over that route. Trolleys were not then dreamed of. SPORTING CAREER BEGUN. In 1854 be bought a grocery store at tlie corner of Crcsbv anil Houston streets, ami got a grocer's license to sell liquors. That was the beginning of his sporting career. He was very strong physically, and his muscular powers gave him more than a local fame. John Morrlssey got acquainted with him Morrlssey, prize fighter, gam bler and Congressman -and liked him so well that be backed him to the extent of $2,300 a side for a wrestling match with Lieut. Ainsworth of New Britain. Alns wortli at thattlme called himself champion of the United States. The match came off In Mozart Hall, New York, April 14, 1863, and Harry Ulllwas victor. After that Morrlssey was his flmi friend. By this time the grocery bad ceased to exist. Hill bad become possessor of ad Joining stores and had extended his place over them. He continued to do this as fast as tbe leases ran out. He erected a stage In the main saloon and gave concerts and boxing bouts on It every night. It was Harry Hill's boast that nobody was ever robbed In bis place. He was srcupulously honest and frequently relieved a drnnken man of bis roll and returned It to him wben tbe Inebriate became sober. Thousands of dollars at a time' were in trusted to him for" safekeeping, and he always returned It. He said that on one occasion a hilarious man gave him $81, OOO.to care for, and received It Intact when . his spree was over. There were many rough-and-tumbleTlfcnts In niU's place, however, and several times 8 1 F St. rowdies entered the resort with the In tention of "doing" the proprietor. Ho overcame these desieradoes without the aidof the police, hilly Edwards once glv lnglilm valuable assistance. . Hill had been married before coming to this country, and he had three sons. It V.ih ottcn said of him, with approval by .the. women who frequented his establish ment, that r.oic t l.is family was ever allowed to enter the resort. Until Hill's famous quarrel u.t lie police his career was a regular and brilliant progress. Ho was reputed to be worth $1,000,000, and he himself declared that he was worth "SiOCT.000. . He was a favorite stake-holder fur betting men as well a ror the contestants Id trials of skill and strength. He was pne of those who backed Billy Edward in his fight with Sam Colycr at Cone River, Va. He also held $25.00o of stakes de posited with him by l-etlors when Sullivan whipped Rjan at Mississippi City. He owned a Tdrm at Flushing. L I., where ho raised rat horses and fancy cattle ami pigs. He had a road house there and two beautiful country houses. Hill always kept an -all night house" perhaps the rrost iw-cuhtr house of Its .kind In the world. The business done was entirely of an "all r.lcht" character, und as such, of course, was In utter violation of the New York excise laws To manage Such a business required "police nrotec- lion." This Harry Hill secured for years and years, until finally there was a row. HIS NEW TLACE ORDERED CLOSED. . Aliut ten years ago he alleged that he was made to pay alioccther too much for policesecurity. lie n ade strong objection, ad charged Police Captain Murphy and De tective Moran with levying large black mail upon him. Then- was.i hot time for a while, the upshot of the whole matter being that Capt. Murr I" and his detecthi; were transferred to another station and Harry Hill's place was ordered do-cd that Is, he was not allowed to keep open after 1 a.m. Tr-at . . nnt that he rcight us well not keep open at all. When the Lexow imesttcatlnc committee began its work, the Parkhnrst Society be sought Hill to testify as to his experience in paying protection money. Heconsented, and was on the witness stand for many hours. When Hill finally gave np the place in Houston and Crosby streets hu went up to Harlem and built a quaint little structure on piles at tlie southeast corner ot Harlem bridge. It was not a profitable venture, and the police were continually interfering with It In esery possible way. He finally had to quit Impoverished. POLICE NEVER FORGAVE HIM. Since then his career has been a suc cession of failures. Men to whom he bad loaned money had forgaten his race. Tho police, whose corruptions he had exposed, never torgae him for telling the truth. The conditions of New York politics made It possible that he could be prevented from keeping an honest place In an honest manner so long as the alleged custodians ot peace and property forbade him. Without their approval hecimld not exist, so far as keeping a public house was con cerned. He became poorer and poorer, until finally JIarry Hill, once all-powerful, became a reminiscence of the past. Sickness seized him the other day, and In Sis seventieth year he lay down and died.
