ABRAHAMS QUITS PEERLESS TEAM 1 1 i The biggest surprise to happen In baseball since "Kid" Reeves' with drawal from the management of du Pont was the announcement that "Aleck" Abrahams was going to drop out of the local game.

NEW YORK, Aug 18. -If Bill Lang, the Australian heavyweight Is defeat ed to-night by AI Kaufman In their battle at the Fairmont Athletic Club, Jim Corbett will be as bltttly disap pointed as he was when Jim Jeffries was counted out a Reno. "I have been boxing steadily with Lang," said Corbett to-day. "and I think he Is one of the best pugilists In the world. I know Kaufman is a first class fighter, but Lang Is faster and has more science. I am sure that Lang will win." Billy Delaney, "the maker of cham pions," is just as optimistic about Kaufman. "The hlg fellow is on edge and will surprise easterns, who saw his poor fight with Ross a year ago. The experience he had In Johnson's camp has developed him wonderfully. Kaufman Is hut 24 years old and never dissipates. 1 venture to pre dict that he will be the champion of the world before the end of next year." j RACING ON THE RISING SUN TRACK RISING SUN, Md„ Aug 16—At the August matinee of the Rising Sun Driving Association at Jones' Park.

Billings purchased the trotting gelding Uhlan last year, following the wonderful exhibition of speed the son of Bingen displayed in his races with Hamburg Belle, It was for the purpose of owning the trotter that would dethrone the/famous Lou Dillon as the champion of the world. Billings picked Uhlan as the coming champion, and last week at Cleveland the gelding fulfilled every obligation to his owner, by clipping the world's records to wagon and sulky Eight years ago the light harness world began to lake notice of the ap proach of the two-mlnute trotter. About that time the pacers were clip ping seconds off their records so fast that it was almost impossible to keep up with the progress In speed reduc tion. Star Pointer had set a Twerk for the sldewheelers to shoot at when he reeled off a mile iu 1:69 3A. but Dan Patch, the king of pacers, mepped miles under the two-mlnute mark al most every week for an entire racing season, so often. In fact, that horse men began to take little notice of Dan Patch's performances. Cresceua, the stallion king, de throned the Abbott, and then the horsemen who followed the light har ness turf were astounded at the re markable performances of this great trotter, until Lou Dillon made her ap pearance and created turf history un til she was retired to the breeding farm. Now the light harness world has a new trotting champion In Uhlan, which on Friday stepped a mile over the North Randall track In 1:68 3-4 without the aid of a windshield. In going this mile. Uhlan beat Lou Dll Ion's mark for a mile unaided by a windshield, and came within one quarter of a second of the time made by Lou Dillon In 1906. when she trotted a mile In 1:68 1-2 behind a windshield. This latter mark stands to-day as the fastest mile ever trotted by a horse, with or without a windshield. The record Is not accepted officially by the National Trotting Association, and It Is the purpose of C. K O. Billings to wipe this record off turf history by beating the mark with Uhlan. The great son of Bingen lowered Lou Dil lon's wagon record on Monday by stepping a mile In t 01. and when he came back on Friday and reeled off a mile In 1:58 3-4 to a sulky, there were few horsemen who witnessed the exhibition who did not concede the trotting laurels to the gelding, and predicted that he would trot faster without a windshield before the sea ends than Lou Dillon did with the son aid of the sheet. The Grand Circuit campaign Is only three weeks old. yet world's records have been going at a rapid rate since the start of the racing season, and the year promises to hold up the rec ord for sensational performances dur ing the Grand Circuit season. It not likely that Mr. Billings will allow Uhlan to make his attempt to break the 1:58 1-2 mark on any other track but Cleveland. Readvllle and Lexing ton would, no doubt, like to have the gelding appear during the big meet ings this season, but Billings will gp doubt start Uhlan over the North Ran dall track, and when he does, and the trotter Is In condition to do his best, the record of 1:58 or better, which was predicted for Lou Dillon, will very likely be made by the new cham pion. There is another (rotting champion likely to lose his laurels this year. This is Cresceus, which still holds the world's record for trotting stallions j j n a race. There are two candidates f or the crown of Cresceus. One Is the Harvester, which trotted to a record of 2:03 1-4 In the second heat of his at Cleveland, and another Is the 1 Abbe, which clipped his mark to 2:04 at North Randall. Both trotters are 'In the hands of Ed Geers, and the : H arV ester * a * d ' *° have shown enovlg h speed in his 2:03 1-4 mile to have beaten the mark of 2:03 1-2 made b) . cresceu^at Brighton Beach I In his race wlth^he Abbott In 1902. From the present outlook the sea Of 1910 looks like a year for new j champions on the trotttlng turf, and I b « fore the season ends many sensa jj ona j performances can be expected from the many trotting and pacing kings and queens which are being driven for the money on the Grand Circuit tracks' r I' c \ I | son FODDER FOR THE ALL-WILMINGTON FANS Jimmy McGonigal Is a bard working short atop.

NEWARK, Del., Au* 16.—Newark added another victory to Ua long string on Saturday, by defeating the Delaware City club by the score of 9 to 1. Murray, who has been with duPont for several Saturdays, was hack In the gai*> again and pitched the game of his life. Only two hits were made off him and not a nit was made until the eighth Inning Murray, also had nine strike outs, Newark has lost but four games this season, and each was lost by one run. The club is composed of all local players and never before has Newark beenyrepresented by such a fast ag gregation. The manager would like to arrange a series of games with the champions of the New Castle County League after the season. To outside people this challenge may sound foolish and seem like a big undertaking for a bunch of amateur players to try to wrestle the cham pionship from a husky crowd of hall players like duPont or the Wilming ton Gas Company, hut If the fans will remember that two years ago, after Newark had claimed the champion ship, Mr. Fahey, who was then man ager of X-Wilmlngton. got together the strongest team that could he found In Wilmington and challenged the locals. The game resulted In a victory for Newark by a 3 to 1 score, and as the boys are playing much faster ball now, they would certainly make a good showing agdlnst either of the big clubs.
