Sports on Page "ORCHARD" ASTIR THESE SPRING DAYS Power Boat Owners Get Little Craft Ready for River Spins There was a dull afternoon at the "Orchards," the boating colony at Eleventh street bridge, yesterday, but the visitors found enough hammering and chipping going on to convince him that the "Orchards" must bo a mighty industrious little burg when It Is busy. There were« few old boatmen lounging about, and In some of the cunning lit tle boat houses at the water's edge there were cheery sounds of hammer and saw. This is the beginning of a big year j for the "Orchards," you must know. There are more power boats In Wil ^nington than ever before, and the "Orchards" citizen Is growing rather self-important. William A. Anderson, who, the boatmen tell you, Is the mayor of the "Orchards," wasn't around yes terday and the visitor was sorry, for they tell great things of him. His stories are famous on both sides of the Brandywine, and the youngsters of the boat clubs retell them with zest. Nearly all of the "Orchardists" are preparing for fun on the Delaware soon. The Olive Club, with its trim "Cadet," and the Rose Club. In its handsome "Hunter," will go to Bower's Beach for fishing on Saturday, and both will be represented by Jolly parties, clubs and individuals are getting their craft in trim for trips to be undertaken shortly. who have power boats, little boat houses at the colony you will see any number of new and re painted canoes and row boats that certain happy chaps will take out soon. The Senator Club, which owns the "Senator," one of the prettiest boats at the "Orchards," the members tell you, has thoroughly remodeled its boat, and she will strike the water in a couple of days as one of the most at tractive powerboats about Wilmington. She is 60 feet long and will shortly take a big party of "Senators" out on the river. The biggest boat at the "Orchards." the "Millville," owned by Elijah Hig gins, will retain her name again this year as the Brandywine. looks mighty important when you throw your eye along her nose. The Baxter Club will soon open Its boat house to send out its "Nimrod," which has won the admiration of all who have Inspect cd her. Stanley Hammond will get out his "Cleremont" soon, too- while Martin Kidd already has his "Sea Kid" tied up to her house. The "Oleta," owned by William Tay lor. and the ."Isabella," owned by "Doc" Burnham, will be chugging out the Brandywine within a few days, as they have ig^on fitted up throuoghly for another sffenuous season. William Palmer's "Winona" has been renovated during the last week or so. and will be Other This doesn't mean only those Tied to tho "Dreadnought" of the She is 60 feet long and Seven one of the stars of the "Orchards" this Rol)«rt Chadwick has his season. "Myrtle" ready for some long outings, and his friends have prospects of good times on the river. Messrs Lalley and Gouert. who own the "Flora," have been working hard on their boat for the last few days, and she will soon be out. Robert Smith's "Red Fox" and James F. Wood's "Sea Gull" are winning much attention from visitors to the "Orch ards." 'Considering Wilmington's fine river front, It Isn't remarkable that power boats aro becoming so popular among young men hero nowadays. They af ford one of the best diversions for the Hogan has a double play unassist ed to his credit. It is the first one l n the league, Bullen says we are not mud ducks, poor boys, 1 Casey was there with the goods when he caught that line drive Hogan's. Clubs of young men have summer. purchased splendid craft, the expense being small Individually, and they have prospects of unique entertainment dur ing the coming hot summer days. FODDER FOR THE ALL-WllMINGTON FANS They're oft. The Birds got started at last. They won one. Hard luck Ashley and Hillside. Tour opponents failed to appear. Must have been afraid. Another chance gone for some teams to better themselves. A score of 9 to 0 wouldn't look good to chalk up against Penn. Wonder what was the matter. Cold feet? Highland didn't show up either. Something is wrong. When you retire a side like Flynn of the Orioles did with four pitched balls you are going some. Hope It don't rain next Saturday. The nthere won't be any excuses. Merwick lost hard, but will continue the fight. If any team can steal any more bases than those Merwick boys they certainly are going some. There wasn't many hits, but look at the brilliant fielding. Hal, the captain of Penn, thinks they aro in the same line with duPont on the wet grounds argument. The game depended on the running catch Jackson made Saturday. JEFF KEEPS IN FINE FORM Fans Will See Him Work li Open for First Time This Week . _ . , B >' VniteA PrtM Lea » ed Speclal ^ w SAN FRANCISCO, May 24 From t camp of Jeftrles. at Rowardennan, ther» continued to come to-day glittering re ports of the splendid condition the u| fellow Is showing, and fight fans an eagerly awaiting his public appearancl °n Friday night that they may ge Jeffries is t< a line for themselves, box three rounds with Bob Armstronj and three with Joe Choynskl in tin This exhibition wai Dreamland ring, announced by Jeffries' handlers to pul down for all time the rumors that th4 big fellow could not "come back." Jusl how well their plan will suoeed remain» for Friday night to show, for there an still "doubting Thomases" who déclin» to believe that Jeffries is the same Jef feries who whipped Sharkey and Cor bett and Fitzsimmons. In this city Jack Johnson is taking his own sweet time about getting ints "I am already In condition condition. to whip Jeffries," the negro valiantly declares, "and there is no necessity foi hard work.7 ojhnson fs keeping up his road-work— twelve miles of it every morning—bul ho is fighting shy of the gymnasium. He will do no gym work for som« time. "I have more to lose In this fight than anyone else In the world," de» dares Johnson, "and It is foolish to think I will not be In .condition on July 4th. I shall do my own training, and I am not taking a correspondence school course in how to do It. Those people who write me letters telling rn* how to train are wasting their tim« I will train In my own way, and when I get Into the ring with cjftrles I will be In shape. If I asn whipped—I shall not be—it will not bo because I'm not right." It Is understood hero that Frank Gotch, the wrestler, will Join the Jef» fries' camp about Juno 5 or 6. .'.J BASEBALL MAGNATES WANT SELF-PROTECTION As a measure of self-protection major league owners this winter prob^ ably will adopt a rule making it im peratlve for all ball players under contract to report, when ordered tot spring practice. Failure may cost ths player a fine or a suspension or both. The plan has not been completely worked out yet, but the magnates in both the major leagues have It under consideration and a majority of them have gone on record as favoring 1L. There will probably be a howl ralse<9 by some players, but really thea have no grounds to complain if thM men who pay their salaries see fit fl compel them to report and get inv condition for the opening of the aeA son. I I The loss of the services of one gnoB player may put a team out of the run ning, so that It Is Impossible for It to catch up when the recalcitrant tea sers gets into shape to play.
