CARMAN TO SHIP GOOD ONES HERE WILL RACE PICK OF STRING AT SANTA ANITA MEELICK AND RAPID WATER TO APPEAR SATURDAY Uncle, $30,000 Co it, May Also Be Here and Sport Hildreth's Colors. Workouts Are In Swing IRVING B. CLEMENT Sixteen head of R. F. Carman's horses will arrive today from Oakland. Among th'-m are such clever performers as Rifleman, which won the Thanksgiving handicap at Emeryville; Acrobat, Flem ing, Magazine, which was the best 2-year old at Ascot last spring; Waterbury and Mark Anthony 11. Jockey Burns will probably come down later to pilot these horses. Meeliek and Rapid Water will be shipped by Sam Hildreth' from Oakland and will sport his colors at Santa Anita park. Either Uncle, the $30,000 beauty, or Veil, a Keene cast-off, will start in tue Pomona handicap on opening day. Horsemen are setting down their steeds In preparation for the opening handicap and many an owner whose horses are eligible to start is looking forward to the first money and honor and glory that goes with winning the first stake at the new track. John Walker sent out J. J. Walsh's Marster and Sir Edward yesterday morn inK and they stepped the mile in 1:44, whicli is a clever performance. John Powers had Barney Schrelber's pair, Tom HeUrath and Preen, breeze a fast six furlong.s an.l they will be hard to beat. McGrath will probably carry the purple, orange sleeves and red cap in the open ing dash, as Mr. Schreiber would like to have the gold cup that goes to the •winner, out of which to drink his Bud wHser. Onlene, if not weighted too heavily, w..l perhaps have the honor of being avorite in the Pomona, as her work Impressed many horsemen, and they will string along with her. Other fast works were Critic, which Dff six furlong.s in 1:16. Jim Boden Kent out (layman's colt. Black Master, five furlongs in 1:02 3-5. which was the fastest worked over the Ascot track at the distance. Besides training a large stable Jim Boden will luok after Jockey Dave Eng lander's mount?. The boy rode with much success In the east last summer, is a good judge of pace, has a gooil scat, a flue pair of hands and can ride at ninety-five pounds. As he will have h good stable to ride for it is safe to say that Englander will be near to the top of the winning list of jockeys when the season Is over, providing nothing mi torseen occurs. Billy McKinney. .-mile and nil. will take another day off and try his luck with the gun. Billy says the only trou bl» with shooting quail is that they look SO much like the sage brush and after he would blaze awny at what appeared to bs a bunch of feathers he found nothing but brush. McKinney does not think very much of his stable this year, as he offered a half Interest to a party for a ten-spot last night. There Is considerrblc speculation among the horsemen at Santa Anita park as to the weights to be carried by the horses that are eligible to start in the Pomona handicap. Secretaries Boden and Smith will have their work finished some time today and will post the weights at 5 p. m. at the new track. IS CARLISLE TO PLAY THE SAINTS? Dispatch Received Last Night from Logan, Utah, However, States Redskins Will Play Here New Year's Day , Coach Walter Hempel of St. Vin cent's last night put the final crimp in the reports of a possible game with the Carlisle Indians. "I Hbve been advised, both by wire and by letter, that the Carlisle eleven positively will not come west this year," said the Saints' football wizard. That Just about ends the hopes of gridiron fans as far as the big game for the holidays is concerned. Despite Hempel's emphatic statement, however, considerable uncertainty is cre ated by the following dispatch, received here last night from Logan, Utah, the home of the Mormon Aggies: Dispatch Causes Doubt "LOGAN. Dec. 3.— Authority was tele graphed to Coach Walker at Chicago to consummate an arrangement for a foot ball game between the Cnrlislo Indians and the team of the Agricultural col lege, in compliance with a telegraphic request received from him today. Salt Lako City, it Is said, stands an excel lent chance of becoming the scene of the match on Christmas day. "The program of the Indians' west ern trip will also include a game with Utah university, which won the Rocky mountain championship by defeating Col orado university 10 to 9, and Carlisle ex pecte to wind up with a game against St. Vincent's, In Los Angeles, on New Year's day. "Inasmuch as St. Vincent's beat Utah university, these proposed games will give an interesting lino on the Utah Ag gies' strength. "Coach Walker has Been" trying to pro cure a game with one of the large teums of the east and the news to the effect that a game with Carlisle would require mere ly the acquiesence of the college authori ties was a source ot gratification to ev eryone here. "The Carlisle Indians form one of the most spectacularly successful football teams that has ever been organized. The career of the aggregation has been one of sensation. Carlisle has met and de feated the teams of the largest collegiate Institutions in the country, repeatedly is suing from matches the victor over Har vard, Yale, Cornell, Pennsylvania and oth er noted university teams. The Indians have more frequently been victorious. "Several trips have been made to the Pacific coast by the team of Carlisle.

WALTER CAMP BOOSTS NEW FOOTBALL lULES Claims That Unlimited Forward Pass Is the Only Defect Which Should Be Eliminated in Future By Associated Press. NEW YORK, Dec. 3.— Walter Camp, the great football expert, says that after two years of trial the new football rules have justified themselves. When the rules were lirst adopted critics said that the lirovlsn us requiring the ball to be advanced ten yards in three downs would result In many no score games, but the result has been exactly the opposite. This rule also caused the abandonment of heavy mass plays which were good for two or three yards, but no more. The unlimited forward paws which can be tried now without serious penalty on first and second downs is the only feature of the rules which the students of foot ball seem to think should be curtailed.

It Is now going the rounds, ami the myriad friends of Orr are having a good .'allKh. * After the close of the trout fishing sea son, which en«*s November 15 In Cali fornia. Orr was one of the last to whip the streams of Tulare for trout. After spending a couple of hours without get ting a bite, a Btranger chanced along and ask.-il orr how the fishing was. Orr re plied that the fish were not biting that day ar. 1 it was impossible to land any under those circumstances. Tho stranger said he had found It. different, nnd It must be because Orr did not know how to angle. Orr Got Sore Now. if there is one thing that Orr thinks .ie can do better than using a rifle or Ehotgun. It is fishing, and he Immedi ately Informed the "former looking" stranger that he WU the best fisherman In the state of California. "Why." exclaimed Orr, "it is only last Wk ¦ -at I made a big catch of fish right In this stream . I landed one five pounder, two four-pounders and several nearly ns large. You see this basket?

NEW YORK, Dec. 3. — A federal auto mobile bill, similar to the ono Intro duced just before yie close of the laßt session of congress, will be introduced almost Immediately by Congressman Cocks of New York, who had charge of the bill at the last session. That bill was Introduced at so into a day that nothing was done with It. The bill has the backing of tho Amer ican Automobile association. It is 1 anvil on Interstate traffic, and provides fir federal licensing of motor cars, hese licenses arc to be in addition to the present state license, the only change being that after an owner has taken out a license in his own sfate he can tour in another state by obtaining a federal license. Under present conditions a car must be licensed In all states in which It travels, some of the states not even giving one day's grace for ;in owner from another state to obtain a license. A. A. U. IS AFTER RULE VIOLATORS REGISTRATION COMMITTEE TO SUSPEND ATHLETES General House Cleaning Includes Dis ciplining Fifteen Long Distance Runners Who Entered Events Without Authority By Associated Press. NEW YORK. Dec. 3.— The registration committee of the Amateur Athletic union has decided to clean house. It is said that athletes In the metropolitan district have been taking advantage of the len iency of the committee and have been breaking the rules of the union. Fifteen long distance runrters took part 'n a cross-country run on Sunday, which was not authorised by the union, and thereby suspended themselves, under the rules. It is said the committee has a long list of athletes who will be suspended at the next meeting. The advertising of athletic stars at various games at which they fail to ap pear is another matter which has caused v great deal of unfavorable comment in New York recently, and the committee will also have something to say on this matter. ANCIENT PEDESTRIAN FAGS YOUNG RIVALS WESTON WALKS MILWAUKEE'S MAYOR OFF HIS FEET Sets Pace for Five Chicagoans Trying to Hoof from Brewery Burg to Windy City in Sixty Hours By Associated Press. MILWAUKEE, Wiß., Dec. 3.— With Edward Payson Weston, the famous pedestrian as pace maker, five Chica goans started from the Milwaukee Ath letic club at V:10 o'clock this morning, bent on walking to Chicago within six ty hours on a wager of $1000 made by P J Schaefor of Chicago. The party Included L. H. Wolf, J. Marshall, W. W. Johnson, J. A. Stenard and Aaron Jones. Accompanying the party on foot, though not participating in the contest, are Mayor Becker of Milwaukee, Alder man Joseph Badenoch of Chicago anii C. J. Seller, chairman of the athletic committee of the Illinois Athletic club. Mayor Becker and Weston arrived at Bacine, Wis., at 2-:4O this afternoon, Becker being so exhausted that he had to go to bed at a hotel. Marshall, Wolf, Stenard, Jones and Johnson all came In a bunch and were also tired out. The trip was made in a snow storm. It is Boubtful whether they will finish the walk to Chicago In sixty hours. Only two members of the party which started to walk from Milwaukee to Chi cago had reached Kenosha on foot at 9 o'clock tonight. They were Aldermnn Joseph Beldonoch and C. J. Czeller of Chicago. The rest of the party, except Mayor Sherburne M. Meeker of Milwau kee and Edward Payson Weston, gave up the race and arrived here In automobiles. Becker and Weston have been lost in the blinding snowstorm which started about li p. in., and automobile parties have been sent out in search of them. CLINE BEATS DALY Associated PreM. ST. LOUIS.

Stranger Gets Busy The "farmer looking" stinnser (lted Up Orr for a moment, and then remarked sneeringly that he did not think it wns possible, but that he wan the man who could do It again If the fish would only bit*, Ju*( at that time the stranger turned back tho flap of his coat and ex hibited the glaring badge of a game war den, /flnd remarked: "I giless you don't know me. I'm the game warden and arrest you for fishing out of season on your own confession, as the season has been closed over a week." Orr looked at .ilm brazenly for a full minute, then smilingly replied, with one of hiß peculiar and fascinating winks: Takes the Medal "I guess you don't know me, either. I am A. R. Orr, president of the VisaUa Hot Air club and the biggest game liar In California. I never caught a fish In my Uf«, and never ootilfl." It is probable tnnt when President H. T. Payne of the Uume and Fish Protective association hears this yarn in Frisco that he will hunt up Orr, and there will be several cases of what the governor of North Carolina snld to tho chief execu tive of South Carolina on a memorable occasion. MAY FIGHT 20 ROUNDS PROSPECT OF LONGER BATTLE ON THE THIRTEENTH If Barry Agrees He and Langford Will Tangle Next Week— Mike Sullivan Plans to En. tertain Jimmy Barry and Sam Langford may be called on to fight twenty rounds after all. for :f Barry arrives here In time to get busy with his training work the bout will be staged by the Pacilic Athletic club on the 13th of this month, instead of four daj-3 later, as was first intended. Langford Is still here, and his prospec tive opponent wired from Boston that he was leaving last night. Tho schedule under which Barry is traveling calls for his appearance in Los Angeles next Saturday, and If he cares to go on with such a short training al lowance the bout will be staged the fol lowing Friday, giving the newcomer a flva day period in which to work. Jimmy has been fighting recently, nnd it Is ex pected that he will be in fairly good trim after the trip across country, bo he may agree to proceed with tho mill on the earlier date. If everything is right the battle wU be held just three days before the new ordinance prohibiting twenty round en counters takes effect. . Mayor Harper plgned the jinks on the 16th of Novem ber, u/!d the law reads that It is a go thirty days later. The Barry-Langford fight will be well within the limit, and will wind up the long shows here. Joe Woodman, Langford's manager, is In favor of a twenty round fight, and will work with the Pacific Athletic club officials in .getting Barry to see it that f-ft-ay also, ,'n addition to the Increased purse, Woodman feels that a victory for his man will look better In the dope book over the long course than with a no decision sign tacked after it, and will uo his little best to have it that way. Mike (Twin) Sullivan will be some oys ters at the Oakwood inn at Arcadia next Sunday, and is preparing to entertain the visitors witn the specialties with which he expects to achieve fame on the stage. Mike has arranged a varied and clever program, and In addition to his vocal selections will box with several opponents. The toupeeless wonder Is there when it comes to opening up the noiso valves, and with Phil Stebbins to accompany him will doubtless surprise those who have never heard him warble. Two of Van Court's pupils will assist in tho ring work, a»i Michael expects to do some entertaining. CUBS WILL TRAIN HERE BERRY AND CHANCE FINALLY COME TO TERMS Henry's Worry That He May Lose Out Causes Him to Forget That Banquet in the Rush Hen Berry, the ex-banquet king, had, a busy session yesterday, and when the shades of night rolled down it was prac tically assured that the Chicago Cubs would use this vicinity as their training grounds next spring. Manager Frank Chance, who was in consultation with Henri on the subject, appeared satisfied with the terms offered him, and accepted. Although he is taking a chance on losing money Berry is well pleased with hia arrangements to have the "world's champions wander this way — so well pleased, in fact, that he forgot to re mamber about his banquet. This over sight on Berry's part will doubtless get him into trouble some day, but as he has not definitely declined the honor tendered him to be host at a Dice yuiini; gathering there is still a chance. Berry is forced to guarantee the Cubs a certain sum. and, according to his own dopo, is the only sucker who will lose if the champs are not received by the local fans in a betlttlng manner. A scries of games will be played with the locals, and early In the year the Chutes dia mond will again be the scene of fast ball. If the deal goes through the Cubs will arrive here early In February. Manager Chance has Issued a call which will get the men together late in March, and the start tor tho only place will be made immediately after the roll is called. 808 MERRIL 18 BEATEN BY HIS BROTHER GREY Bob Merril, representing the freshmen of Occidental college, found a little too much class awaiting him In the person of Grey Merril, who was Hying sopho more colors in the interclass tennis tour nament yesterday afternoon, and went down to defeat before the older member of the athletic clan. The score by sets was 6-1, 6-7 and 6-2. Bruce Merril, another corner of the tribal triangle, annexed the champion ship of the senior class in the prelim inaries and will represent '08 In the inter class \flnals. Ills lust opponent was Ralney, who lasted lo the end of the preliminaries by ueieating Macv. ANXIOUS FOR SANTA ANITA HORSEMEN WISH TO TEST NEW RACE TRACK Hldreth and Carman Strings, Con taining Many Cracks, Will Be Shipped to Local Course This Week J. G. GRIFFIN When will horsemen have full access to tho new track? This is the question which is heard a hundred times n day nt Ascot park anil nmong those who have already shipped their charges over to Sant.i Anita park in preparation for open ing day. Around the headquarters of the Los Angeles Racing association no one seems to hnve the right answer, and the result is a balled up crowd all around, both officials and horsemen being appar ently in a hurry to set things right. The rail around the track at Arcadia is almost completed, and save for the fact that Contractor Allen wishes to get the c- urse In tho best of shape without hav ing to give up any time to the galloping horses, there is nothing to hinder work outs at any hour of the day. Allen wants to make a showing in the line of time during the early stages of the meeting, and does not care to be interfered with In any way. From the looks of things, tomorrow will see Allen's work completed, and the track turned over to the runners. All the chutes whnh will be completed at the first meeting can be used opening day, and the seven-furlong and mile events will be started on their own little stretches of getaway room. The news that Sam Hildreth and R. F. Carmnn would both ship the pick of their etrlngs to Santa Anita in time for Satur day's opening was joyful information to th« association officials, even If some of the owners who heard It, and who had been figuring on some particular event as their own, did n.ot appear cheerful. Such horses as Meellck, Uncle, Veil, Fleming, Acrobat, Rapid Water and others which have been smashing records at the north ern course are sure to add to the attrac tiveness of the local meet, and will great ly aid the "class" of the entrants In the various races. Hildreth's reason for sending the pick of his lot south may be found In the conditions of the Emeryville track. While undoubtedly faster than anything in the west yet recorded, the northern course is rather hard, and according to horsemen who have raced there this year, Is none too good for a thorough bred with anything but the soundest of underpinnings. Hildreth has twice scratched his cr.ick colt Uncle, and Montgomery, considered next lr value, was sent to the poßt but once, and that on opening day. Report has it that the owner does not care to risk his real cracks in races until the track gets softer, and for that reason he Is shipping to Santa Anita to wait until J. Pluvius takes a notion to attend tho races at Emeryville. And speaking of Emeryville, nothing like it has ever been seen for smashing records one after another. Many times since the season opened three weeks ago have California and coast marks been lowered, and the climax came yesterday when Jack Nunnally, winner of the open ing handicap, In which he defeated Mont gomery, stepped five furlongs In 58 3-5. At the same time Nunnally stepped in record time he registered another defeat for Sam Hildreth. The "busher" horse trimmed Montgomery when the latter was a favorite at odds on. and yesterday he cnmr» right back and won from another of Hildreth's best. Meellck. Jockey Chris Miller and his associates In the Sierra Nevada stable seem to have a useful piece of horseflesh in* the David Tenny gelding, and before the end of the senson Jack Nunnally may bo regarded seriously by the easterners, who took his victory over Montgomery as some kind of a joke. Although workouts have been watched with interest at Ascot park, save In rare Instances will they be of any value to those trying to put ovef a winning bet before the horses setle down to their Santa Anita form. For one thing, the stretch at the old course Is "knee deep," and as most of the thoroughbreds are let down for their teal work on the piece of track near the grand stand, not much can be gained from their time. The back stretch Is all right, but unless trainers are giving their charges something to do at more than four furlongs the horses are breezed along this good going and ex tended whero the track is poor. Naming future 2-year-olds Is one of the jobs confronting owners at the pree ent time, and of those already "baptised" some fancy things can be expected, If the way they are called goes for any thing. Whoa TCnima Is one of the fancy birds which W. Shipley elects to carry his colors next year; she Is by George F. Smith, the horse whose record for five furlongs was lowered by Jack Nunnally yesterday. Thomas H. Williams calls one of his future winners Quake, in honor of the little disturbance whioh ocourred in San Francißco last year, and Benny's Busy comes from the Newman stable. Unless she appeals to the owner or the association Miss May Button, champion of all champions on the tennis courts, will perhaps see her name carried to victory on the race track, for some genius with a penchant for titles is calling one of his ponies May Button. Rose of the Rancho will also appear being a filly by Liesnk, mentioned by Phil Chlnn. And there are others yet to come. Jim Jeffries has managed to escape, and most of the local talent falls to appear In the stake book. Of cdurse, many names will be given just before the youngsters are sent to the post for their first appear ance, so even Tommy Burns has a chance to become famous on the race track. TROPICO WANTS GAMES The Troplco baseball team has been reorganised, with C. C. Hapgood us man ager and Charles Hunter as captain, and wants a game for next Sunday.

Grnest Amherst Villlers, a mem ber of parliament, London, England, In company with his wife, arrived iti the United States December 2, after an ex tensive tour of Australia, Japan and China, and a trip of Inspection of the Philippine islands and other possessions of the United States. At the Alexandria hotel yesterday Mr. Villiers said: "I am a believer in the words of Shakespeare, 'Give all men your ear 9, but few your tongue.' Having been In your country less than twenty-four hours I am unable to state my opinion of it. Your country would be far better off If the newspapers gave less space to crimes committed, as this has a tetjuency to Induce crime, rather than to diminish it." The principal reason for the trip to America was the failing of Mrs. Villiers' health. Hon. Villiers Is the son of Rev. Charles Villiers, late rector of Croft Yorkshire, Is 44 years of age and was educated at Upplrigham, Cambridge. He will make a flying trip through the eastern states and return to England in time for the opening of parliament January 1.

NEW YORK, Dec. 3.— Although RlVinK him all the credit for beating Gunner Moir In the heavyweight battlu in Lon don last night the English press is not well pleased witli the victory won by Tommy Burns, according to the extracts from the English papers cabled here early this morning. Tho English believe Burns to be an American, while as a matter of fact ho a Canadian, and It Iti evident that mush of Ills unpopularity Is due to that fact. Burns attempted to make a speech when he entered the ring at tho National Sporting club for the purpose of explain ing his nationality, but ne was hissed down. Even with his victory after a tight, which all admit was his from tho third round, he was hooted. Didn't Turn a Hair That Burns had all the best of the light from the beginning is admitted by the Sportsmiui, which says that Moir was badly used up, while "Burns, on thu other hand, had not turned a hair, and not only lett off without a mark, but even the parting of his hair was not disarranged." Continuing, the same papei* says: "it was not the fault of Burns that tho splendid crowd that packed the club house In every part had to sit out suoh a disappointing show. Moir was the man to blauue. It is not our policy to go bacic on a loser, but Jlolr was absolutely painful. "He went into the ring a model, well trained "man, evidently -as hard as li 4)oar<l,.ahd with a pull of over a stone in weight and the advantage of two nnd one-half inches In height. Yet his blows lacked the Bower of a featherweight. ' Cockney 111 at Ease "He was uncertain and ill at ease from the outset. Indeed, his nervousness was ho apparent that even Burns could not help smiling. Though outclassed and outgeneraled *loir seemed incapable of altering his method. He was thrown ofC his guard by tho wily man in front and so worried by his seconds that at times ho Appeared altogether at a loss as to what to do. "We, on this side, did not fee the best of Burns! for the single reason that Moir could not extend himself an inch. The winner has a nasty habit of beating, in with his head on the neck or cheek of his opponent. Moir wnu hampered a bit this way and looked to be holding more than he really was. "Under the most favorable conditions, however, Moir could never hope to make any show with Burns, who will, despite the disappointing display given by his opponent last night, experience very lit tle, if any, trouble, In beating whoever may bo put up against him on this sido of the Atlantic."
