Starbuck finished the last fifteen miles alone, going the entire distance of the twenty mile in 45:03"2. Taylore's time for the four miles was 8:22. SLOAK COMING HACK. Left Liverpool Yesterday on the Camrmulu. "Tod" Sloan, the American jockey, who has made quite a record in the annals of English racing, left Liver pool yesterday for home on board the Cunard Line steamship Campania. The dispatch which conveys this news bays that "Tod" is going to Cincinnati to try and secure his release from the Fleischmann Sons, for whom he con tracted to ride next season, so that he can return to England and accept an engagement with the English stable of lorillard and Beiesford. According to report there is not much likelihood of Sloan's wish being grant ed, for Mr. Julius Fleischmann is in charge of the stable since his father's death, and it will be a disappointment not to have a jockey like Sloan when j-everal of the horses were bought with the knowledge that they would be well Handled by the premier lightweight. The stable was also materially increas ed on the ground that -Sloan had con tracted to ride. Mr. W. Fleischmann, iho was the instigator of Sloan signing a. contract with his relatives, would annul the contract without a question, but unfortunately he has little to say in the matter.

Frank Thompson, Lie ber Karl, Sacket, San d'Or, George Keene. Ettholin, Official, Isobey, Galli vant, Pacemaker, Pontus and others. Hamburg also is eligible, but will prob ably be raced exclusively in the East. There is some talk of holding a run ning horse meeting at Cleveland. John Madden has sent three choice mares to be bred to Meddler. At the annual meeting of the Park way Driving Club, held on Thursday night at the Clarendon Hotel, Borough of Brooklyn, Sheriff Frank D. Creamer was elected president for the ensuing year. "Gus" Straus yesterday bought two gilt-edged yearling chestnut colts of Dr. Keel, of Versailles, Kentucky. One is a full brother to Hastings; the other is also by Spendthrift, and is out ot imp. Cinderella, dam of Handsel, La Creole and others. According to reports "Pittsburg Phil" is craving for English turf honors. This Is what "Brother Bill" says, but "Brother Bill" is a gilt-edged jollier. The entries for both the Brooklyn and Suburban handicaps will in all proba bility be made known on Monday. A letter was received in New York dated Cairo, Egypt, from Riley Gran nan, who states that he is well and ex pects to be home in time for the spring racing. "Joe" Sherrer will not ride for J. E.

Who is Clmmplimv The heavyweight championship as it stands now is a tangled affnirr Fitz cannot retain the title always without defending it If Corbett refuses to fight Maher he cannot claim it. In that case the championship will fall to one of any two men who wish to fight for it. The fact that Corbett told Fitz to fight some one else before he would accept his challenge, and that Fitz is paying him back in his own coin counts for naught. The fact that Corbett was wrong does not make Fitz right. Iemphis Spring; Meeting. The entries to the spring stakes of fered by the new Memphis Jockey Club for its meeting, which begins April 9 and continues for nineteen das. show a gratifying increase over last year. Entric-h for the eleven stakes opened aggregate 60S. or an average of about fifty-five to each fixed event, as com pared with an average of fhirty-two last year.

It is announced that the Parmer Hendric syndicate has secured control of the Fort Erie track and will give a spring meeting. Horsemen will fight shy of this meeting. Most of them were badly bitten at the fall meeting at that track last year, but, of course, the management was different. If the favor or license of the Jockey Club is to be gained the new lessees of the Fort Erie track will have to give bonds that the purses will be paid. llrcitciistuln'H Popularity. Contrary to report, Theodore Breiten- stein is still in St. Louis, although he talks of moving his lares and penates to Cincinnati. "Breit" is beloved in St. Louis, all the fans are proud of him, but he will lose a lot of friends if he quits his native city. It was bad enough to lose him as a player; it would be in finitely worse to lose him as a citizen. Chi is A'on der Abe made more enemies the day he .sold Breitenstein than he made during the rest of his entire base ball existence. As long as he had the little left-hander he could count on a crowd once or twice a week, but there has never been a decent crowd on the St. Louis grounds since "Breit" was sold. SPOUTING MISCELLANY. Spiingficld, Ohio, on January 17. Cav anaugh is in the pink of condition and confident of winning. Tommy Cavanaugh is training at John Weyrich's place, Dayton, Ohio, for his go with Kid La Feber, at E. E. Anderson, with a record of a mile in one minute, three seconds on a bicycle, paced by a locomotive, is to make a similar time trial on Memo rial Day. There is a rumor in sporting circles that Tom O'Hourke's "unknown," whom he announces he will back for $20,000 against McCoy, is none other than Charlie Goff. It is estimated that fully 20 per cent of the manufacturers of bicycles ii Hie United States will nurlot some sort of a cbainless model this year in addi tion to their regular chain driveis. George Slosson, the champion billiard player of the world, is hard at work practicing for the championship match with Jacob Schaefer. which is to be played in Madison Square Concert Hall, February 5. Jimmy O'Leary has accepted the challenge of Kid McPartland for a twenty-round go, at 140 pounds. 1 OLeary csin get a good purse from the Metropolitan Athletic Club, of Wheel ing. W. Ya., and he wants McPartland to send on articles at once. The week of August 2 has been de cided upon for the 189S L. A. W. meet at Indianapolis, and the racing circuit will be arranged so that the men will have ample time at that city tov,e come accustomed to the track on which the championships will be ridden. "Charley" "White yesterday- received an offer of $800 from Chicago for a iix round bout between "Jimmy" Barry and Casper Leon, to take place at Chi cago next month. White has accepted. He- declares that in the future Loon will only fight at from 104 to 110 pounds. The ten-round bout which was an nounced to take place between Peter Maher and Yank Kenny, in Troy, will not come off. Maher says that he nev er authorized any person to make the match or say that he would make it. "J'm looking for bigger game than tills Ohio man," said Maher to Johnny Dunn, the New York representative of the Tulane A.thletic Club, of. New Or leans, "and can give no time to a bout with a man in his class." Col. Billy Thompson got to New York yesterday and at once the sports got in line trying to find out whether PhnrlAV Mltl"loll ivrtlllfl maat TT11 IVf.-.- I Coy or not. Col. Thompson. was Mitch ell's manager when he fought Corbett. and having come here from Denver, his appearance has caused the sporting people hereabouts to think there is realty something in the Mitchell-McCoy story. It is positively known that the colonel mailed an important letter to-' day to Mitchell, besides cabling him. When asked nbout the matter by a re porter his reply was: "I don't knpw anything, but wait -and see."

Al Herfoid, the hustling matchmaker of the Eureka Athletic Club, of Balti more, is anxious to (secure the contest between Kid McCoyandiCharIey GofT, of California, for his? club, and he has notified McCoy anu , illy Madden, manager of Goff, that he will hang up a purse of $1,000 for a twenty-round contest, either the jjafte'r part of this month or early next mBnth. As this offer is a better one'thari the one offer ed1 bv the Navarre Athletic Club,' cf Lexington. Ky.,M the chances are that McCoy and Madden will accept it. pro viding, of course, there are no" better offers sent in for the contest. Although there are very few sporting menin an ! around Baltimore who are of the opin ion that Goff would be in it at- any stage of the game with McCoy, they would, however, spend a few dollars just to see how quick McCoy would go through Goff. SPAItivS FROM TIIK DIAMOND. Cy Swaim, the long pitcher of the "Washington team, is eating oranges and pineapples and catching tarpon in Southern Florida. Old Cy keeps his arm limbered up by shying stones at woodchucks and rattlesnakes. Visiting clubs will lose at St. Louis, while the receipts of home clubs when the Browns are the visitors will be awfully reduced. This feature of the matter makes the question one that concerns vitally every club in the league, and it is this feature that may cause the league as a whole to act de cisively on the matter when the'meet ing is held. The services of the Baltimore players are In demand every spring as coaches for college teams. Clarke has had an ofTer from Princeton; Capt. Robln&'on and McGraw. it is believed, will begin coaching the Johns Hopkins team ear ly in February: Jennings will go to Georgia, and Kelly may give the Georgetown University team points on the national game. It is thought Dr. Pond may also do some coaching. It does not need the opinion of any magnate to let the public know that the affairs of the St. Louis club are in a wretched condition, and if the mag nates at their coming meeting at St. Louis do not deal with the case it will be a surprise to thousands of baseball patrons throughout the land. If there Is not a change it is computed that the condition of things at St. Louis will cost each of the other eleven clubs anywhere from $5,000 to $7,000 during the season. According to a wire from Chicago, Frank Selee, of Boston, on his way East from California, spent some time among the Western Leaguers, and had the way cleared by which he was to haye the much discussed eighth fran chise located at Omaha. There was but one obstacle, and that was Selee's con tract with Boston, which has another j ear fo run. Boston would not con sent to let Selee off', so 'feoes the story, and so the elghthn franchise was set afloat again. 31 . -j ' i it- TUHF i-NQHES.
