SOUND TRIMMING FOR NEW CASTLE Greek Team of City : League Put It All Over Flower ' City Boys Last Night. SCORE WAS ONLY 13 TO 1 LOCAL AMATEUR DEMONSTRAT EO THEIR SUPERIORITY OVER .THE .VJITINQ SEMI-PROFESSIONAL PLAYERS. Sweet revenge was gained by the Greek polo team over New Castle last evening at the 'Coliseum and it was carried far enough, for'the final score to result in. a .13, to 1 victory, for the locals. The game was somewhat of a fares and shows, the superiority of the local amateurs over the Flower City and Indianapolis semi-professionals. Henley and Allison, were the stars and worked well together, but in an- effort to pick out stars, the. other players of the local should come in for credit.

Cen ter position Is bothering him more than it ever has because the candidates apparently are taking less interest than last year and therefore are not giving their best efforts. According to the dope, Hotchkiss, Conrad and Reese look good for the forward posi tions, while guards will be selected from Pitts, Tibbetts, H. Furnas and Cornell. There are several men try ing for the center position including Orennan, on last year's team, , and Morrison, a recruit . These two have the hunch on the field at present.

The Southern league played to an at tendance of over 1,000,000 last season. The schedule meeting of the Ameri can and National leagues has been called for February 10, at Chicago. ; John McMahon. the old Baltimore pitcher of the early nineties, is talked of for manager of Wilmington, Del., Tri-State - league team. ! The two New York major league teams have ninety-seven players un der contract or reserve. The "Giants" have forty-six and the "Highlanders" fifty-one. Ted Sullivan, the man who brought out Charley , Com Iskey, says that Ty Cobb Is the greatest ball player in the game today. . Manager Casey of. the Portland, Northwestern league club answers to the first name of Pearl. Pearl Casey is about as musical as Gladys O'Brien. A tip of the American' league open ings: Cleveland in St. Louis, Chicago in Detroit, New York in Washington and Boston in Philadelphia. Ball fans all over the country are now counting the days to the time when their favorites go into the south for their spring training practice, for then they know that it won't be long before the season will be in full swing. Here is a statement made by Frank Chance, manager of the Cubs, about his boss: ' ' "Murphy doesn't know anything about baseball, and I know he don't." There's many a true word spoken by the press agents. Joe Cantillon is as stubborn in his refusal to trade Jim Delehanty as Charley Ebbetts in holding on to Hum mell.

All Week High Class Vaudeville. "Father and the Boys." "Father and the Boys,", in which W. H. Crane is to appear at the Gen nett theater on January 14, is with out doubt George Ade's very cleverest comedy and with Mr. Crane playing the leading part, Mr. Ade seems to have made giant strides since he gave the public "The College Widow" and "The ; County Chairman." This does not mean that the two latter plays were not up to the mark, but "Father and the Boys" is so far beyond the mark set at that time. It has cer tainly widened very materially the popularity of both Mr. Crane and Mr. Ade, which goes to prove - that the combination is an excellent one. The play is the biggest success that Mr. Crane has had in years, and is very justly regarded as one of the distinct hits of his long career on the stage Charles Frohman has given "Father and the Boys' a splendid production and has surrounded Mr. Crane with a company of competent players, includ ing, among others, Margaret Dale, Vivian Martin, Belle Bohn, Isabel Gar rison, Forrest Orr, Thomas Meighan, Joseph Whiting and Dan Collyer. "A King's Rival." Those to whom only the best in dramatic art appeals will no doubt be eager to see that sterling actor, John Griffith, in his new play, "A King's Rival," which is announced as the at traction at the Gennett theater next Saturday evening. Mr. Griffith has appeared here a number of times dur ing former seasons, but in the past he has confined his impersonations to Shakesperian and other tragic roles. The part of Don Caesar, which he plays in "A King's Rival" is of a semi comic type, and it Is Interesting to note that his success in the character has been fully equal to his many prev ious achievements in the roles of "the immortal Bard," which demonstrates his remarkable versatility. Mr. Grif fith's supporting company is said to be an exceptionally strong organiza tion. "Brown ef Harvard." The college fraternity is meant to be merely organized friendship. Stu dent friendship affords one of the most charming momories of one's col lege days, and may easily be life long in duration and infinitely precious in quality. The fraternity is based on this fact, and has the added charm of permanent organization, and of the privacy, usually miscalled secrecy; which is so attractive, especially to the young. The paraphernalia of a secret - society, is in itself winning. Its ritual is a constant pleasure, its sworn brotherhood has the flavor of mystery and 'of friendship in one. Its interests become obsorbing, its per petuation takes the first place In one's thoughts. It is. a convenient nucleus for college politics, and a center of social gratification. The fraternity has first place in the ambi tion and in the attention of a large proportion of students. "Brown of Harvard," which the Shnberts present at the Gennett the ater on Friday, January 9. with James Young in the title role is sort of a traveling representation of the frater 25c just come to his own as a ball player and is too valuable to trade. Paul Cobb, "Ty's" brother, a Hedges capture from Joplin, can be reclaimed by his old club for $500, the price Robert L., paid for him. That would not indicate that he is expected to prove anything like as big noiso as his illustrious brother. Garry Herrmann denies the story that has been printed in many of the western papers to the effect that he once offered McGraw $25,000 for Rog er Bresnahan, now manager of the Cardinals. One fan who saw the story said that Garry wouldn't give that much money for all the ball players in J the country.. It will be interesting to note how much Jack Knight: has improved dur ing his stay in the Eastern league, af ter his experience with the Philadel phia and Boston. Americans. Stall ings believes New York has secured a good man in the youngster, and had a good chance to size him up. The Red Sox will cut up in Hot Springs from February 27 to March 29. Manager Lake will take twenty seven warriors to the Spa. En route home games will be played In Mem phis, Little Rock, Nashville, Cincin nati, Indianapolis, Dayton, Columbus, Wheeling and Baltimore. Malachi Kittrldge, the veteran catcher, stood second last year among the catchers of the New York state league with an average of 993. He made only one error in twenty-two games. Can you imagine anything finer than "Kit" was some ten or fif teen years ago? Spike Shannon will be sent back to the minors this spring by Pittsburg. Two years ago the New York Giants gave up $10,000 to St. Louis for Shan non's release, and then turned him ov er to Pittsburg for a sheet of song and dance music. Spike has found it dif ficult to keep down weight and must now go back to the sandwich route. nity idea, no less than ten different collegiate societies being present. The cast was especially chosen of col lege men in order that the perform ance of the ensemble scenes might be more natural and realistic. "East Lynne." "East Lynne" will be presented at the Gennett theater tonight by Joseph King's excellent company. Mr. King produced such plays as the "Ninety and Nine," ."The Charity Ball," 'The Wife" and an unusual performance of the old play is assured. Mme. Blanche Marchesi. As the date of Mme. Blanche Mar- ehesl'si song recital in this city draws rapidly near, the following touching episode, gleaned from the great fund of reminiscences which fill her event ful life, may not come amiss to those who intend to hear her matchless in terpretations of song poetry. "Speaking of psychic presenti ments," Mme. Marchesi observed, "a curious thing happened when I was singing in Paris, on the last occasion on which M. Felix Lamoureux con ducted. After the second act of "Tris tan" he and I were exchanging greet ings, when he suddenly discovered a boquet of white lilacs which had been sent him by some admirer. The thought flashed into my mind that it was an unsuitable flower to send to him. Why not Laurel? He stood with the boquet in his hand looking downward, but his eyes seemed to be closed. Just at that moment the glare of the electric light fell full ort the expressive face and the man's whole personality seemed to change into something spiritual. The impression of death took possession of me, and I was glad when he put down the flow ers. Still, I could not, throw off that presentiment of impending, disaster, though about midnight I bade hims adieu and lett lor England. Think ot my sorrow when in the first journal I opened on reaching London, I learn ed that Lamoureux had joined the ma jority whose music makes the glad ness of the world." Gennett theater January IS. Entertainment Course. The third number of the entertain ment course under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A. and Earlham occurs next Friday night at the coliseum. This is an evening of magic by Shungopavi, the wonder-worker and his company of illusionists. Shungopavi is a full blooded Moqui Indian and is a descen dent of the cliff-dwellers. His success in the lyceum field has been some thing marvelous. In his company is Youna, the American-Japanese jug gler, together with Madame Jouna, who appears in Indian and Japanese dress as an assistant This will be one of the most interesting and be wildering . of entertainments ever giv en in Richmond. New Phillips. t A large and good natured audience greeted the change of bill at the New Phillips this afternoon and seemed pleased with the several turns put on. The comedy playlet presented by Allen, Delmain and Harrold was genially accepted and applauded. Han some's work in magic was of the mystifying sort and therefore all the more delightful. Tricks that just teem with simplicity 'yet remain baf fling, are Hansome's forte. The comedy skit put on by Carey and Stampe was of the better sort and took well.- With a fast flow of wit and humor, that didn't wait for the audience, the two kept things pretty lively for their time on the stage. The motion pictures and the illus trated song, were fairly REVIEW OFPAST YEAR Nineteen Hundred and Eight Sea son of Sport One of Thrills. MANY CHANGES IN TITLES. Baseball Held Attention of Public Un til Rao Were Decided Smaller Colleges Better Able to Cop With Big Follows In Football Other Topics. . By THOMAS t. CLARK, For thrilling climaxes it is doubtful If the 1908 season of sport will be equaled for many years to come. Cer- UmlT " never can "nrpassed as far as baseball Is concerned, as the fact that both major league pennants were decided on tbe last day of the season means that tbe extreme limit of dia mond sensations has been reached. The exciting incidents of a presiden tial campaign and tbe lay of the muck raker were of minor importance dur ing the last six weeks of the greatest struggles in tbe history of the national game. Baseball was tbe country's business until tbe pennants really were decided, and nothing was allowed to interfere with tb throbbing detail of that business. Chicago was in the thickest of the fight all tbe time. Old Cbl was really tbe axis about which the baseball world revolved. As usual, most of "the glory came Chicago's way, the Cube taking home the National league championship and then the world's title, although thousands thought New York was entitled to tbe banner. Tb past season In football has been notable owing to the fact that the smaller colleges have made big in roads in tbe records of tbe historic winners. Harvard played brilliant foot ball all season and won the eastern championship with a clean slate, and Chicago university gathered to itself the leadership of the west. College and university students claim that their game, football, should be crowned and garlanded as the kingpin of athletics. The American style, of Rugby certainly has gained great strides in tbe past few years, especially since tbe reform rules were passed. Although a damper was thrown on the lawn tennis enthusiasts of this country by the recent defeat of Messrs. Beals Wright and F. B. Alexander in Australia while endeavoring to wrest away the Davis cup, the season has been one of sustained interest and real class of competition. The national championship was retained by W. A. Lamed. He trimmed one of his an cient rivals, Beals Wright. Nat Em erson of Cincinnati kept the western laurels and also captured tbe north western championship at Lake Mln netonka. Court tennis continued ) to have Its inning in the east, and that young expert. Jay Gould, as usual, won whatever was worth winning in the amateur class, and s George Standing easily captured the professional title In rackets from Peter Latham, the English champion. Another season In bowling has rolled by, and the sport has continued to make a remarkable advance. Chicago claims front rank as a center of tbe alley game. A. Wengler of Chicago won tbe Individual title at the Cincin nati tournament, and a Chicago pair, Harry Kiene and Jimmy Chalmers, since deceased, had the honor of tak ing tbe doubles. Tbe five man title went to Columbus, O., the Bonds set ting the excellent count of 2,927. America added another champion ship to its long list when Frank Gotch downed George Hackenschmidt, the "Russian Lion," at Chicago In April. The foreigner was simply nnable to combat the trained speed and brain work of the Yankee. Fred Harlow, an outsider, is tbe new trap shooting champion, winning tbe classic title by defeating a great field in Columbus, O. The American'' team was victor In tbe Olympian games. Sergeant Brest of the United States is the national rifle champion. winning at Camp Perry, O., against a number of splendid sharpshooters. Lieutenant Sayre is the American champion with the revolver. Walter Winans, an American born man, but who now lives in London, Is easily the world's champion with the revolver. Twelve new American swimming rec ords were established during the sea son of 1908, World's Champion- C. M. Daniels of the New York Athletic club annexing five of the marks. Honors for the year are apportioned among Daniels, Brown, Hebner and Handy of Chicago and Goessllng of St. Louis. Rowing flourished during tbe season of 1908, and more Interest was mani fested in the sport than ever in tbe past. Tbe professional sculling title went to Arnst, who defeated Cham pion Webb " at Wanganul, New Zea land, during the middle part of Decem ber. Among the college crews Harvard was the leader on performances. First the crimson took the navy into camp on the Severn in a two mile voyage. Then Cornell passed under the yoke on the Charles river, and finally the Tale oarsmen were badly defeated by their ancient and honorable rival. Tbe In tercollegiate regatta at Poughkeepsie was captured by Syracuse, Columbia landing second. In the annual historic race between Cambridge and Oxford at Putney the former was the victor. The American athletes captured the majority of the track and field events at the Olympic last July-August. Mel vln Sheppard set two new world's rec ords in the 800 and 1,500 meter races. Ralph Rose easily captured the shot State of Ohio, City of Toledo Lucas County. iss. Frank J. Cheney makes oath that he Is senior partner of the firm of F. J.

Stanley Ketcbel and Billy Papke fought for tbe middleweight title in Milwaukee, and tbe former re ceived the verdict. The pair met again, and Papke knocked out KetcheL In the third bout Ketcbel disposed of Papke by the knockout route in eleven rounds. .. . The real big battle of tbe year was between Burns and Johnson for world's heavyweight honors. - Johnson chased Born arouncT1tbe world for more than a year. The pair finally met In Sydney Dec. 26 last. The con test throughout was one sided, and tbe bout was stopped to save Burns from a knockout. Marathon racing has received quite a boom in this country. In nearly ev ery big city there have been long dis tance races, and more are to come, both amateur and professional con tests. Tbe craze started when Doran- do Ptetrl defeated Hayes in New York, and renewed impetus was given the movement when Longboat defeated Dorando. WALKER COMING TO AMERICA Grat Sprinter to Try His Spd Against Yank Nxt Summr. A worldwide trip is planned by a team of South African athletes to take in Australia, England and tbe United States. The team will be made up of tbe best men In South Africa and will include R. E. Walker, tbe great little sprinter who surprised the world wben he won the hundred meter dash at the London Olympiad from James Rector of Virginia and who recently ran a hundred yards in 0 2-5 seconds. This record equals the best ever made in the world and, while not yet officially accepted, is said to have been ran un der conditions that make its accept ance certain. Hefferon, who finished second to Johnny Hayes in the Marathon race at London after Dorando bad been dis qualified, will also be a member of tbe team. Walker is very anxious to compete in tbe Amateur Athletic union cham pionships as well as the Canadian championships and also wants to take part in tbe games of the Irish-Ameri can Athletic; club, New York Athletic club and Chicago Athletic association that will be held while he is in this country. In the recent games Walker equaled his timet for a hundred yards made at Abergavenny, England,- last August, and it is one-fifth of a second less than the previous record, made by Dan j; Kelly at Spokane, Wash.. June 23, 1906. Walker also made the 120 yard dash in 11 2-5 seconds. This Is a new record. Tbe record for 120 yard. B. X. WAXKX, THX rSXKOMKXAli SOUTH araiCAX sranma. 11 4-5 seconds, was held by B. J. We- fers. It was made at Travers Island Sept. 26, 1896. Walker is a sprinter of more than ordinary merit, as was proved at tbe Olympic games. Quick as lightning on bis start, be gets away so fast that he seems to beat the gun, and his victory over Rector in London was gained in the first stride. There is good reason to believe that his records will stand. Marquette May Have Craw. A movement has been started in Milwaukee for tbe representation of Marquette university at the annual crew races on the Hudson at Pough keepsle.N. Y next spring. .

Bill Squires and Many Other Challenge th Nw Champion t Long Rang. Much better than the sounding of tbe trump of Gabriel, as far as bring ing dead boxers to life, was tbe big money bung up for the Johnson-Burns championship battle at Sydney. Aus tralia. From all parts of tbe country the whole world, in fact tbe long bur led and almost forgotten bruisers are shaking off their shrouds, giving up good-' jobs -and getting their lungs in shape by howling challenges at John son. Each declares that he is willing and able to beat tbe big colored man; that he will not demand $30,000. as did Tommy Burns, but would be willing to make tbe match if the stakes were fairly divided. There is also a lot of hot air about side bets. These run up close to a million in tbe aggregate. While all these challenges .are find ing their way into print the one man in the world that the' sporting, men think ha a splendid chance of defeat ing Johnson retired champion Jim Jeffries Is staying at borne and re lating that he is through with the fighting game forever and that he would not enter the ring with any man In the world even if he received $30, 000 for hi end of the purse. Tom Sharkey, once a near champion, but far from "near" after Jim Jeffries bad caved in a few of bis ribs, -was the first to say that he want to fight Johnson. Sharkey does not really care to re-enter the ring, but to take tbe championship from a black man he will sacrifice his time, business and feeling. It Is heroic on hi part. He talks as though there could be no slip up in his plan and feela so sure that he will bet from $3,000 to $10,000 on the side that Is. he says be will. You know Thomas was always strong for betting. Clark' Ball, one time manager of FitzBlmmons, John L. Sullivan and other light of the ring, wants to back Marvin Hart to win tbe title. Ball honestly says that he is not certain that Hart could win. but thinks that the Louisville man has as good a right to fight Johnson as sny one else. He seems to be about right in that just as good a right and just as much chance. ' So sure is Hart that he can get a match with Johnson that he has turn ed down an offer of $200 per month to get John E. Madden in shape by box ing with him dally.
