BIG EVENTS IN THE SPORTING WORLD THE SHAMROCK HAS SUSTAINED NO INJURIES False Rumors Given Circulation. ■ — ♦ — CERTAIN CALKING NECESSARY — ♦ — REASON FOR THE DOCKING OF THE oHALLENGER. * General Overhauling and Inspection Deemed Necessary Before the Trials With the Britannia. ♦ Special Cable to The Call and the New York Herald. Copyrighted, ISS9, by James Gor don Bennett. _ __ SOUTHAMPTON, July 12.— A1l sorts of delusive reports are current here. In de fault of news concerning the. reasons for the Shamrock being docked, and wanting a sensation at any price, some of the press representatives dish up the worst of reports, with a little sauce dlable of their own. This particular sensational proclivity Is stia further aggravated by the absolute reticence of all persons connected with the Shamrock. Truth naturally cannot be so interesting as fiction, but the truth is, that the docking of the Shamrock- was merely owing to the fact that certain calking -wa* found necessary. It was not cwing, as has been stated, to a plate giv ing way, but in a general way. as" might be expected in a new yacht. Sir Thomas I.'^ton naturally denies the leakage story. One of the principal reasons for the decking was that there is plenty of time now, and there will not be time when the yacht gets to Clyde. Docking her for only slight defects is a luxury which Sir Thom as tan afford. The yacht has now been in the water nearly three weeks, and the designer and captains were unanimous in the opinion that a general overhauling and inspection, with a tut recaiking and polishing of her bronze bottom, would be of much practi cal value. tiir Thomas jpton's big yacht Erin re mains cJut in the waters of Hythe, look ing lonesome without the gay-colored Shamrock. Owing to the fact that the tailing spin between the Shamrock and Britannia will not be possible before July lb the situation is somewhat altered. First, then will probably be only time for one sail; second, matters will have to be hurried up in the north to get her litted out in time. Sir Thomas, I hear, wishes absolutely that she should start out on her voyage from Clyde during the first week of Au gust, and by the end of that week at the latest. You may now take it that she will leave here as soon as possible after July 18. The Britannia as I saw her yesterday at Cowes. after having left Fay's yard, appears as though she were new, with fresh, copper, new keel, boom and gaff. Marvin of Cowes is busy cleaning her Hpars; she has been recalked and has new bulwarks and taffrail. besides which lots of new work has been put In her below. She has been upholstered afresh. The Satanlta, her old rival, is being scrubbed. She has been docked at Fay's yard and is nearly ready for Cowes' great yachting week. The Meteor remains at anchor off Hythe, waiting, it is said, for a good opportunity to be docked. There is much discussion at Cowes as to whether the Kaiser will take part in the yachting. One fact is known— that his Majesty has accepted an Invitation to be present at Essen during that identical period, but of course he could cancel that If he liked.

T'l "\ ENSE mystery' surrounded the Shamrock, the challenger for the American cup, up to the time that she slid into the? til water from the ways at Fife's shipyard. Details concerning her are still kept secret to the greatest possible extent. 4 y I I but the shrewd observers who have seen her in the water are able to describe her. with sufficient exactness toi ♦ II satisfy any one except an expert in the technicalities of yacht building. The Shamrock is supposed to draw over 20 ' <$, ■ J feet of water, which fact was indicated by her grounding at a place where the water is said to be 20 feet deep. She! + has a mainsail that weighs a ton, and 26 men were required recently to roll It up. It Is the largest cutter mainsailf /that has ever been bent In England. The total length' of the Shamrock is 125 feet. One report^, ihas it that her draught is 18 feet 6 inches. This is probably a mistake. The canvas alone in the mainsail' f weighs near about 2400 pounds. The Shamrock will be commanded in the great race by "Archie" Hogarth,, .who formerlyT manded the famous Isolde. Second in command when the Shamrock meets the Columbia will be Robert Wringe, whoT ♦ ha« won reputation as commander of the Allsa and also as master of the Duke of Abr;:z_i's Bona. The Shamrock s crcwj •iwlll consist of thirty men who have been selected with great care, the selection being baaed upon their experience as racing ♦ yachtsmen in British waters. Before the Shamrock meets the Columbia there will be trial spins against British yachti,'* and the Prince o.* Wales will probably sail the Shamrock on at least one occasion against his yacht, the Britannia.

Henry J. Crocker, F. H. Green and other men in the directorate of the Pacific Coast Jockey Club, are credited with being mi i terested in the enterprise. R. E. de B. I Lopez, who has been closely identified i with coursing, will supply the technical knowledge of the game which his asso ciates lack. The site of the projected park is just across the line in San Mateo County. It is opposite the pumping station of the Spring Valley Water Works, and Is the property upon which George Ehman gave out recently he Intended to build a park. It consists of eighty acres and Is owned by John Daly. There Is a rise in the land to the eastward, but this is not con sidered a detriment to Inclosed coursing. Nature has provided the hare with short front legs, which arc an advantage in go ing over raised ground. The draw for this week's coursing at Union Park was held last night.

CLOSE RACE OF CLUBS FOR THE LEAGUE PENNANT The Leading Teams Bunched for Honors. — — NEWS OF PLAYS AND PLAYERS — • — WATSONVILLE IN THE HANDS OF NEW MANAGERS. ♦ Why "Hatchet" Pace Did Not Dispute With the Umpire— lnteresting Gossip Gleaned From the Diamond. — ~~ The championship race of the California Baseball League is developing into quite a struggle, and it looks certainly hard to ; select the winner. A month ago indica- I tions pointed to a ding-dong finish be- I tween the Santa Cruz and Friscos for ' leading honors, but since then the per ! centage of the leaders has taken quite a tumble and Sacramento and San Jose have improved their positions consider ably. It is not expected that either Oak land or Watsonvllle will make a bid for the top of the heap, and It seems as if these two clubs are destined to fight It out for tail-end honors. Between Sacra mento, San Francisco and San- Jose con ditions arc beginning to shape /so that it will be extremely difficult to select a win ner. At the present writing Santa Cruz leads the Friscos by a small fraction of a game. Frisco leads San Jose by a game and a halt and San Jose leads Sacramento by but one. game, so it can be seen from these figures that each of these clubs has an equal chance to win out. Follow ing Is the standing of the clubs: CLUBS. s s * a N r.

The Watsonvllle club has passed from the control of the .-sent owners into the hands of L. B. Morris of that city. The new management will make a lively effort to strengthen their weak spots and tele grams are being sent all over. the country to players of good caliber offering them substantia] inducements to join the Wat sonviUes. • Shea has been released by the Oaklands and Is seeking a position as pitcher. Kelly, who pitched the game for Wat sonvllfe last Sunday morning, is the left handed twlrler of the Santa Clara College team. He pitched a fair game, although it would be hard to judge his abilities from this game, as the team gave him very poor support. The Sacramentos expect to have a new first baseman for this week's series. His name is O'Connor and he hails from the Texas League. He Is reputed to be a good one and a very aggressive player. Tebeau Is playing Donlin at first In daily practice. He Is much pleased with bin work, and he says it is only a ques tion of a short time when he will be the permanent guardian of the initial bag for the St. Louis team. The new batting order of the Friscos seems to work beneficially, judging by re cent results. The San Jose team has been cutting quite a "swath" among the leaders. This is due In a great measure to Andrews' splendid pitching, and if Borchers will get in line and pitch up to his standard there Is no telling where the crack club will stop. The game Iberg won last Sunday morn ing was the first the locals have taken in which he pitched for a month. Oakland seems to be prolific of first basemen, as they have a new guardian of that bag every game they play. This has been a peculiarly weak spot of the Athenians all season. It was feared that Pace, the hatchet man of the •"Sandcrabs," might cause trouble with the umpire In last Saturday's game, but Pace was a good boy and al lowed Jeffries to give his decisions with out any forcible resistance. He prcba- bly sized the champion up and thought discretion the better part of valor. Pace was suspended for thirty days, but the management and he have patched up some sort of a truce and he has been re- Instated. Pace has been a trouble maker and dlsorganlzer ever since the season opened. "Jay" Hughes won every game he pitched In May and June. Phil Knell is doing great work for Hartford: He is pitching in old-time form and winning games for his team. Loekhead is playing a wonderful game for Cleveland. "Rab bit" McHale has been released several times this season for- weak stick work. Stockton Fair Trotting Events. Stockton will offer great inducements to the harness horse neople this year. Sec retary Willy announces to horsemen that the driving club will hang up seven $1000 purses for the fast classes, the entries for which close August 1.
