D ' Ts the latest style of football bet-
HR tcr ,than the old game?
Vl There are many who havo their
ft - Ulces and dislikes for both games, and
H il tho only way to come to a conclusion
Kftj in the matter Is to consider the qual-
Wn itlcs in the varied styles of play.
mll "While the old gamo brought tho pop-
mi' ular college pastime to the front.
BtY there is little doubt that the present
J game with Its possibilities has its
Hl predecessor beaten.
V There was little incentive for a
V ' small team to keep bucking up
H against a stronger eleven, knowing i
H beforehand that they were to boj
H beaten, and the only thing in their'
M minds was to hold the score down
vi as low as possible. This same con-
Hf dltion prevailed year after year, and
V ,i the weaker team was merely a tool
H j I for the stronger aggregaton to fit
H -i Itself for the bigger games scheduled
H ( for later in the season. In the days
H ' of the old game men were selected
H for the squad end sent to the training
H table If they were of enormous weight
H and possessed strength accordingly.
H The present frame places these ro-
H qulrcments on tho shelf and gives ev-
H erybody, no matter whether heavy or
H light, a chance to make good.
H . Game Played Mechanically.
B . The plays under the new rules re-
H , quire a man to go on the field on
H i his own responsibility and meet an
H attack on his own resources. In the
B ' ' old game a team was taught how to
H meet an attack and had a defense
M for everv play sprang by the oppo-
m nents. They were taught plavs In a
H mechanical fashion, and If they did '
M not gain they were distinctly up
H against It. The players had no re-
Bj" course to othor plays and thov had
H ! to stay on the field and fight the j
Hi , best they could alpng the lines which '
H . ' were taught fheni by the coach. If
HL - ' tho style of defense as laid down by
' ' the coach did not successfully cope
Wk I with the opponents' attack, the do-
Kk V Tnslve tesm wa3 beaten and the
'M size of the score only a question of
H Under the present rules the play-
H I :
ers are obliged to think for them
selves, and If such and such a style
of defense does not meet an offense
successfully, they musl evolve one
that will, and this they must do with
out any help or advice from the
coach. In this way the game be
comes a benefit to tho players and
they are not not wholly responsible I
to "tho coach for their victories or
Spectators Sec Ball.
In the old days the team that could
boast of an average of 190 pounds or
over was considered In the champion
ship class. Nowadays the team that
wins a championship average 170 or
ISO pounds and the back field of
such an eleven is extremely light,
while the center trio is composed of
the heaviest men. Another good fen-'
'ture of the present style of play, nnd
.one of great Importance. Is the fact
that tho spectators have the oppor
tunity of seeing tho ball all through
a contest, which naturally makes tho
game of more interest to them. Tho
old Rugby game with Its mass plays
and quick changes into the line af
forded little chance to the spectators
of seeing the ball until the official
j had untangled tho pile of struggling
humanity, and the constant rcretl
tion of such plays became woefully
A kicker, of both the punt nnd drop,
was an absolute necessity in tho old
stvlc game, .h,ut hp Is of vastly more
importance under the new rules.
Good Kicker is Essential.
Formerly many games wore won
because the teams had a man who
could boot the picskln down tho field
40 and TO yards in good shape. Tho
field goal proposition also led many
coaches to look for a man early in
1 the season who showed some prom
ise of becoming proficient In this llno
A good field goal kicker is the most!,
valuable asset any team can possess,
and tho art of kicking goals from
the field can only bo learned after
long and hard practice This prac
tice should be done behind a scrim
mage line, with an onnoslng eleven
brenklnc through endeavoring to
block the kick. This enables the
kicker to gain self-ccnf'dence and In
a great incisure he will learn just
how much time he can allow himself
without fear of halng his kick,
In general tho new gauic with its
possibilities, both on the defouso and
offense, the benefit the players do
me from being thrown on their own
resources, fewer chances of injuries
more Interest for the spectators, and
tho chances for the comparatively
weaker teams for victory more than
offset the good qualities of the old
"What's the biggest score ever
made In a major lenguo ball game?"
How many times that question has
I been asked cannot be estimated.
Judging from, my own experience,
covering twenty-three years, and tak
ing Into consideration the number ol
baseball writers past and present, the
query musl have been made some
thing like 11.000.990 1-2 times. The
fraction represents the occasion on
which tho fan was so curious to know
that he expired before he finished
the sentence.
Well, here it is: Chicago, 0C; J-o"-isville,
7; on June 29, 1S97, on the Na
tional league grounds in Chicago.
Larger scores than that havo been
made in baseball, particularly when it
was In the embryonic stage of de
velopment. Historians of the game
declare the greatest number of ran
ever made by a team In one gamo la
209 by the old Niagara club of Buf
falo, "but that was way back in tho
'60s, before there were any baseball
leagues, big or little and before they
; began playing the baseball we know.
Since tho organization of the game in
1S7C there has bcon nothing In a ma
jor circuit to equal what Anson's Colta
did to the Colonels on that day in
Fifteen years Is a long time in base

Jack Sheridan, dean or umpires
now, was the arbitrator of that slug
ging bee, and the Cub scribes who
rovel In roasting umpires can learn
by reading the accounts of the game
how ancient is the practice The re
porters took a fall out of Sheridan for
calling Connor out for cutting third
base. They praised Jack, however,
for calling all tho close decisions
"out" in tho later lnn'ngs so as to get
Ihe gamo over, otherwise tho score
might have mounted higher before
Chicago did score one more run,
which was not allowed because of a
ludicrous situation. In the fifth, the

followed with a home run against the
emergency hospital, making five runs
for that Inning.
Six hits, a base on balle and a sac
rifice, followed by three errors on one
Dlav, netted scen runs for Chicago in
'he third. In thnl rally a vicious
bounder from Anson's bat smnshed
Johnson In the eye and he retired in
favor of DelehantA. So did Cbls Fras

of their livc5. Jones, a raw recruit,

the runaway Colts from making runs
as fast as they had been getting them.

run, and seven were added to the to
tal. In the ninth the players went af
ter a record and got It They made
six hits off Jones and those. with
some bases on balls and errors, man

After the third inning Callahan
merely lobbed the ball up to the Col
onel batsmen. They did not count
much off him except in the fifth, when
five Jilts and a hase on balls were goo.I
for fhe of the seven runs they ac
quired all day
McCormlck was the leading slug
ger. He made four singles, a threo
bagger and a home run In eight times
up. Lango hit safely four times, In-
eluding a double and triple In seven j
times at bat, and Connon and Calla
han made four safeties apiece Two
of Callahan's were doubles. The pres
ent White Sox leader always was a
good hitter for a pitcher and that ac
counts for the lact that he was ahead
of the catcher in tho batting order.
Fraser and . I ones were pounded for
thirty hits., with a total of forty-seven
bases in that game. The seven er
rors made by the Colonels and the
ten bases on balls given the winners
account for acquiring more runs than
base hits. There wero clubs in "the
National league then. On the day this
slugging marathon came oq Chicago

kept Chicago out of the tall end berth.

semi-professional baseball were all

string of wins recorded to the cred

games in a row was the record, and
Hugh was the cause.
Aboirt every second or third game,
which meant almost overy Saturday
during the long summer, when tho
Dry Dock's most important games
were played, a pitcher from "out of
' town." who came to be known as
"The Mysterious Murray," would walk
on tile field In a Dry Dock suit, warm
! up, pitch and win his came, and
slip away None knew his Identity.
He won 15 Saturday games for the
'earn that summer, and It was not till
'he next summei, when one of the
Buffalo Citv league teams playod at
Falconer, T. Y., that the mystery was
unraveled. Bedient was announced to
pitch for Falconqr. and Bedient was

But this much L; in they don't
want any moro of . Already they
ere dickering witn Eddie McGoor
ly, the Oshkosh stnr. to cross the
r.'ater and do brittle with Frank Klaus,
tho man Papke hoped to light If he
shipped Carpeutier
Papke is being crltlcisori for show
ug up at the scales overweight for
Cnrpentler Bur It was only a fev.
ounces, and he paid $1,000 for his
carelessness. Then he whipped their
idol for 17 rounds and made him quit.
That no doubt has riled the Fnch
sports. Besides that they don't like
the rough, infighting methods of the
thunderbolt. Papke mauled CCarpen
licr about In shameless fashion and
we suppose those tactics hae helped
to put the ban on him.
But regardless of the justice of tho
French prejudice against Papke, the
truth Is that McGoorty, and not Bil
ly. Is going to get the big match
with Klaus. Marty Forklns. who does
the managerial teaming for McGoor
, received the Paris offer last night
nud Immediately got busy phoning the
sporting editors.
"The offer came through Dan Mc
Kettrlck of New York, the American
leprosentative of tho big Paris club."
Forkins informed us,. "They want Mc
Goorty to meet Klaus for the world's
middleweight championship over tho
20-round route on New Year's night.
They have decided to ditch Papke for
Foruo reason unknown to me, and Mc
Kettrick's wire avers that they want
McGoorty the worst way.
'"I have notified McKettrick that
McGoorty will fight Klaus in Paris,
provided we get a $7,500 guarantee
and round trip expenses for Eddie
and yours truly That's some chunk
of monev. I admit, but then Eddie and
Klaus form the biggest drawing card
in tho world today and the niatcn
will draw a barrel of coin. If they
can nfford to givo Papke. a fading star,
So 000 for one fight. McGoorty Is cer
tainly worth $2,500 more. That's the
way I Pcuro it anywnj. and I rath
er imagine the French folks wili
meet our demand."
Forklns loft for Oshkosh to talk
matters over with the middleweight
with the famous left hook. McGoorty
has been longing for a boat ride
across the briny and no doubt will
be pleased indeed to learn that at
last there Is a chance of his settlin;
a long standing dispute with the
Pittsburg German.
McGoorty starts a two weeks' stage
turn next week In St Paul. After
displaying his loft hook to audiences
for that length of time he will start
getting ready for an Important en
gagement he has with one Michael
Gibbons on the night of Decomber 3
nt Madison Square carden, New York.
Forkins says Hint Eddie can get
over to Paris after the Gibbons fight
, in time to get two weeks' work for
; the encounter with Klaus, and argues
that is plenty of time.
! In tho meaniimo we are wonder
ing Just why the French have turn
ed against Papke, who came back
out of near oblivion puglllstlcally and
again put himself in the running for
I the middleweight title by his splen-
I did victory over CarpenUer
j Privately, we think the French aro
sore on BUly because he whaled their
