GREATEST RACE MEET
IN AUTO HISTORY Forty-six Fastest Foreign and American Cars Have Been Entered for 500-Mile Eventton Indianapolis Speedway. Indianapolis. Ind.. May 2S.?What Should undoubtedly prove to be the greatest automobile team race ever ? hold in this country will take place on Tuesday, when forty-six of the fastest foreign nnd American cars, driven by the most expert and daring drivers in the world, will take part In u 500-mile raco on the Indianapolis brick motor? drome. It has been nine months since the Initial announcement of this con? test was made by the promoters, and each month lias witnessed an incrouse of Interest on the part of the public as well as the manufacturers. Almost six months ago the first entry was made, when Lewis Strang was en? tered. Prom that time on the entries were sent in steadily, until the largest field ever drawn together for one event wns announced when the entries were closed. The greatest number of en? tries In any one contest previous to ?this time was twenty-six. The long race his assumed even greater proportions than the promoters had anticipated, when the purse of ?25,0O0 in gold was offered for the j .winnors of the first ten places. A capital of $10.000 headed a Ust of ?ilno others, as follows: Second, $5,000; third, $3.000; fourth, $2,000; fifth, ?l,r>00; s'xth, $1.000; seventh, $S00; eighth, $700; ninth, 5C00; tenth, $r.00. , In addition to this small fortune .there have been added side prlr.es by various accessory makers, which brings the total to be won up to about $10,000. Supplementing the cash prizes arc ten bronze plaques;* which will be given to the entrants of the ton winning cars. It long hau been the rule in motor car racing that the drivers shall receive the cash prizes and the makers the trophies. Preparations have been made for handling a crowd of 100,000. Parking space for 10.000 automobiles has b-:en provided. In order to prevent acci? dents to tho spectators, 300 men are employed. A military organisation, known as the Speedway Guard, is com? posed of 200 men. These militiamen guard every roadway and gate so that the track has been termed "foolproof." In addition, 100 police ajjd plain clothes men watch the throng throughout the day. A mounted squad aids In direct? ing the crowds to thejr proper piac.es. Known as *<the greatest race couse In the world," tho speedway has been a great centre of attraction for motor? ists, even when there was n-> event in progress. The grounds conto-n 02.1 acres, all Inclosed with a high board fence, and every corner attended by landscape gardeners. There are forty nine buildings on tho grounds. Includ? ing garages and grandstands. Flower gardens and shrubbery dot the en? tire tract. The track is two one one half miles in length, and required six months to construct, at a cost of more than $150,000. The entire racing plant, ?as It stands to-day cost more than $500,000. - Washington., May 28.?Managor Mo '!Alocr plans breaking In Eddie Aln-( tmlth a6 an outfielder when ho recovers from his present sprained ankle. He considers the young backstop one of :tho most natural hitters he has over Been. "I'll find a placo on this team for Alnsmlth," said MoAleor . to-day. That lad Is ono of the best players I have ever soon, and as soon as ho reports -for duty and can show me that his inatural stride with the stick is .lust .where It Is now?over .300?I'll find a place for him where he can play every day, and lie of use to the team. Aln? smlth Is young and can lenrn. He has ?ono of the best arms 1 have over seen ? on any young player. Now, the easiest -thing in baseball Is to learn how to catch a fly ball In the outfield. Of course, some men are always better than others, but almost anybody can be taught how to catch them In some fashion. "When Easterly, of Cleveland, started in at tho Held, he didn't look very good. He certainly had no grace, but he caught the ball. Ho is a better fielder now than he was when he started, hut he had to learn. "I don't bco why a fly behind the plate is any harder or oven as hard to catch as a fly In the field, or vice versa. A lly ball is a fly ball, and I have a strong opinion that tills lad Alnsmlth can learn in u short time to be one of the best hitting out? fielders in tho league. New York, May 2S.?Matt Wells, the English lightweight champion, has brought over the Lord Lon6dale belt, valued at $15,000, which he won from Freddie Welsh. No matter whether Wells suffers n defeat on points or by 1 a knockout while in this country he will hold the English title, for the belt must be contested for at the National Sporting Cluh of London Haider cor- j tnln rules and regulations. Weils says' he Intends to return to England next fall, when he hopes to get another mntch with the present British cham? pion. The Madison Athletic Club, of Harlem,.^vhlch staged the last Brown Murphy hattlc'lnslsts that Wells will box ten rounds with Jack Goodman there next Friday night, the conditions calling for catch weights.'

BRITISH OFFICERS ARE AFTER POLO CUP lhis Week Will Witness Greatest Match World Ever Has Seen?Cream "of the Ponies Will Be Under Saddle. New York. May 28.?With only two days Intervening before a quartet of British cavalry officers will ride on to the Meadowhrook Hunt Club's polo grounds at Hempsteud Plains. Long island, to meet the American holders 1 of the international polo trophy, the months of preparation for the greatest polo match the world has ever seen I are practically complete. The superlative Is warranted, foi not since the game began In Persia 2,000 years ago have as many dollar? and people backed a contest of this sort. Notwithstanding that there has been somo criticism of the prodigal expense to which the American players have gone to provide the cream of polo ponies from tho world over, even the English players are backed by a popular subscription fund of $50,000. In addition to what heavy expenses the Individual players assume In comlns here to try to take away the cup. Prom all reports Interest In tho match extends to four continents?to England and all her colonies In every purl of the world, but especially to India, where most of the challenging players have been famous In inter regimental games, and to the Western States of our own country, and even South America, If for no other^reason than that the ponies have been brought from those sections. And the players admit that the ponies play more than half the game. In two months' practice, in New ,lor sey and Long Island, the visiting play? ers have become well known, and their playing form has been keenly followed in the practice games. The Americans, Including the Wnlerburys, Harry Payne Whitney and Deveroux Mllburn, are Idols to followers of the game. The British toam. probably will be made up of Captain Leslie Cheapo, Lieuten? ant Edwards, Captain Hordress Lloyd and 'Captain Wilson. The Meadowbrook field has been surrounded with stands to accommo? date thousands' of spectators, and boxes have been sold as high as $200 each. The rich, velvety turf has been cultivated, trimmed and rolled for some months, especially for the Inter? national contest The first game Is called for Wednesday afternoon at 4:S0 o'clock, and the match will be de? cided by the best two games out of three. Polo was Introduced Into the United States In 1876 by James Gordon Ben? nett, and the first public, matih of record wns played June 11, 1S70, In Prospect Park, Brooklyn. The first International tournament for the American polo cup was played nt Newport In 1SS6. and on account of the excellent team play of the Eng? lish and the superiority of their ponies they carried away the cup. That was a quarter ->f a century ago. and It was not won back until the year before last. Now another team of English army officers Is after It again, and has brought a stable of thirty-five high priced English bred polo po.nlcs in an endeavor to lift the trophy.

BOSTON WANTS Otll ON SUNDAY ?i-q-p Boston. May 28.?Armed with a peti? tion bearing 10,000 signatures. Benja? min F. Sullivan, of Bast Boston, in? tends to go to Washington this week to porauado Secretary of War Stltnson to allow Sunday baseball games at the forts In Boaton Harbor. Opposition to the gamcB, Mr. Bulll van said, comes from ministers, who fear that Sunday basch&ll at the torts might. If permitted, be an entering wedge for a general Sunday baseball movement In Boston and throughout the State. i Baseball on Sunday has been played at Fort Banks, Fort Warren and other places down the harbor until last year, when U protest by the citizens of Win? throp was carried to tho United Statea district attorney and the War Depart? ment ordered the games stopped. Pertinent Comment BY GUS MALBERT Until the Lynchburg meeting of the Virginia League, which Is to bo held In tho Hill City next Wednesday, is over, volumes upon volumes will be written In anticipation of what the magnates will aetiiHlly do. Tho importance of tho meeting cannot be overestimated. Op tlmlsts to the contrary notwithstand? ing, the Virginia League needs some mighty bolstering before things run smoothly, If, Indeed, they ever do run smoothly again. .While it Ik not desired Co ciuphaaizr the strained relations between the chiel executive of the league and certain other Interests, the fact that these re? lations aro strained Is at once ap? parent to readers of the dully papers. If the Lynchburg meeting Ib lo'uniount to anything ut all, it must first of nil resolve Itself into a peace conference, with every man present toting fair with every other man. In other words, using the languuge which Ben Tlllman used during the discussion of the rate bill In the United States Senate, the Virginia League magnate* do not know "where they are at." and the present, meeting should largely endeavor to find out "where they at e at." From the viewpoint of the layman the present administration of league affairs has resolved itself largely In a tug-o"-war. with the western Section pulling- against the eastern section The' new regime war, not welcomed nt all In eertaln localities, and, through various means, this dlspeasure has made It He'll apparent. If all are interested solely in the good of the league, there should certainly be that clement of frankness between the several magnates, without which no real foundation of confidence can be established. The salary limit Ik of minor Importance compared with this. The cry of '.'better baseball for Bich mor.d" Is not unwarranted. Blchmond demands better baseball. But Ibere la p. way and a way to get It. Certainly the real way Is not In Clandestine fashion. The tight for better baseball. If the fight Is to he made, should ha made in the open. It may he that ar? rangements can be made to let Blch? mond out of the Virginia League and substitute another town. This Is sim? ply one suggestion. Or It may be the sense of the meeting to so Increase the salary limit as to give the class of baseball which the patrons of tho game tire seemingly demanding. But. first of all. let there be peace and confi? dence established. Richmond has a good team right now?better, in fact, than it bad last year. If the pitchers Improve, there will be no comparison between the two. The question Is will Richmond be able to keep the present team? It cannot be done under the $1, 200 plan. All of the other towns have good teams. Petersburg has shown marvel? ous Improvement Danville, as soon us the cripples get back In the game. Will be in the running. Lynchburg Is rounding Into form. And Norfolk and Boanoke speak for themselves. If statistics mean anything the Colts are a going aggregation. Rapp heads the hitters, though he has been In only one game, and his leadership Is. therefore, an empty honor. Tho per? centage he obtained In the game ho worked of .667 will not stand. Wallace Is entitled to the premier position. His consistent work has netted him a per? centage of .319. Donnovan in six games has a percentage of .348. Kgan follows with .331. Martin with .320, and Mattis is the last of the .300 brigade, with .302. Tlie team Is batting .287 and fielding .960, which is a great showing. Mattis leads all of the fielders. He has been in thirty-three pames and has not made an error. Wallace, Sullivan. Cowan and Baker, follow In the order named. Baker and Wallace have each scored thirty-two runs Martin Is the champion base-stealer thus far, with twelve to his credit. Baker has nlno and McCabe eight. McCabe la the champion sacrlftcer, with eight. Baker has seven and Sullivan alx. If the pitching problem has been solved, the Colts will be a "hard propo? sition to beat. Petersburg will be a fair test, and four games with tho Goobers will be played this week, three In Petersburg and one here on Decora? tion Day. ACADEMY, To-Night Matinees .Wednesday and Saturday.
