THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM, MONDAY, MARCH 21, 1910.
PAGE TWO. MANY YOUNGSTERS GETTING A TRIAL Training Camp Echoes Tell of the Great Work of the "Hopefuls." BLACKBURNE A GOOD ONE YOUNGSTER PURCHASED BY THE , CHICAGO WHITE SOX SETS DIA MOND AFIRE WHEAT LOOKS AWFULLY GOOD. r By TOMMY CLARK. If one can believe the reports that are emanating from the different ma jor league baseball training camps the coming season will produce pocket edi tions of the famous diamond stars nans Wagner, Ty Cobb, "Three Fin gered" Brown, Christy Mathewson and Larry Jajole. According to the many baseball correspondents, these pbe noms are the greatest ever and are setting the diamond afire with their sensational batting, fielding and pitch ing stunts. But, as has been the 'case in former years, a majority of these so called wonders explode as soon as the real season Is a few weeks old. Of course there are exceptions, but the major . portion of them go up like skyrockets before crowds on their respective home grounds. . . From the New York Nationals' train ing camp in Marlin Springs, Tex., comes the reports that McGraw has the finest collection of youngsters In the country. Lush, Spencer, Zacher and Pitchers Evans, Dickens and Parsons have all shown major league caliber, according to the correspondents. At the Chicago Americans' camp in Los "Angeles, Cal., all eyes are cen tered on the sensational playing of the $10,000 beauty Russell Blackburne. Correspondents Inform us that he Is a second Wagner without doubt Mana ger Hugh Duffy says this youngster will be the leading sensation of the 1910 American league season. ' Bill Dahlen says be has two wonders in Zacu' Wheat and Jake Daubert. Wbeat has been doing sensational stunts In the fielding and batting line. Dahlen says he is a future star par excellence. Fans who have seen Dau bert perform say that Tim Jordan will have to go some to hold down first base this season .for the "Infants." He has been pasting the ball all over the diamond and handling himself in grand style round the first sack. Pittsburg has several phenoms at the training camp in Hot Springs. In fact, Fred Clarke is sure he will dis cover a first baseman that will fill the Villi 4n fl ta4- nln a a ohn nA St. Louis American ball tossers are high la praise of Kinsella, the young pitcher corralled by the Browns last fall. In the practice games this youngster has shown all the qualities of a veteran and is assured of a per manent berth on the team. In young Ilendrick, Manager Jimmy McAleer of the Washington Americans is sure that he has another Walter Johnson. Hen drick has been showing remarkable control and a large assortment of curves In the practice games. For the .first time since he assumed the management of the New York Americans George Stallings is enthu siastic. . It takes a lot to arouse the enthusiasm of the big chief. "Unless I greatly miss my guess," he gushed recently, "these young fellows will show you something before the season is over. I never saw a bunch of youngsters that so appealed to me. They are intelligent apparently from their conversation and actions, and brains go further in baseball than you would imagine. "Now, there is that big fellow Up ham. I brought him to the training camp at Athens to pitch to the batters. I wasn't figuring on him in any capaci ty. Ibad almost promised him to Ed Barrows of Montreal, but Ed hasn't a chance if the big kid keeps on showing the stuff that he has done in several games. It's tough on the manager, but I'm about as much up a tree as . last year, It looks as If 111 have an other big task in picking out the best The trouble is they all look too good to turn loose." A.

Phoenix, Ariz. 20.000 Despite the fact that the grand and great western circuits come together at Columbus, the directors of the meeting there are likely to feel some opposition as a result of the vote of the directors of the Michigan state fair recently, which voted to have a week's racing of grand circuit propor tion!! the week of Sept. 19. It will be recalled tmt when the grand circuit stewards met Detroit wanted two dates, but was unsuccessful in its ap plication for a September sanction. Now, however, the state fair folks have decided to go it alone. This second Detroit meeting will fol low the grand circuit meeting at Syra cuse. N. Y., which makes a rather fa vorable shipment possible, while the story runs that some of the purses will be of sufficient size to make them worth while for any horseman to win. The racing at Detroit state fair will be along practically the same lines as have made trotting one of the features of the state fairs at Ilamline and Mil waukee. There are to be two $5,000 early closing stakes, and altogether something over $25,000 In purse money Is to be hung up. The great majority of driving as sociations controlling a half mile track thoroughly believe at heart that the hopples should be abolished and. feel that the gradual manner in which they are to disappear under the rule Just adopted will not work much of hardship in the way of costing en tries. The pity is that with hopples now limited in their career , matinee organizations do not come out unani mously against their use in club and Interclub races iustead of permitting the hoppled sidewheeler to compete on equal terms with the free legged pacer. The first $500,000 racing circuit in the history of the light harness horse was organized at Chicago recently, when the stewards of the great west ern circuit got together for their much belated annual meeting. They made up for lost time, however, in mapping out a circuit that not only for the rich ness of the prizes offered, but for duration and territory covered, is far more pretentious than anything ever before attempted. Just how far if at all the great western circuit will hurt some of the grand circuit tracks remains to be seen. It is a certainty, however, that in the case of Kalamazoo. Detroit. Cleveland and Columbus the circuit will be a beuefit, as all of these tracks made application for and received the same dates in the great western cir cuit as they now hold in the grand circuit. Some may construe that ac tion as an indication of weakness on the part of the grand circuit tracks, but in any event it assures larger fields for the grand circuit meetings during those weeks in which the purses are of top notch proportions. Indeed, it is the $150,000 that these four grand circuit tracks will hang up that sends the total of great western stakes and purses up beyond the half million figures. The great western circuit under its new makeup will open on July 4 at Fort Wayne. Ind.." with weeks follow ing at Terre Haute. Ind., and Grand Rapids, Mich., before joining forces meetings that follow upon consecu tive weeks. The great western then jumps to reoria, Galesburg, Joliet. 111. and the state fairs at Ilamline, Minn., and Milwaukee before swinging in with Columbus for the meeting the last two weeks of September. Then comes Springfield. 111., for the first week in October, followed by a long jump into the far southwest, with Oklahoma City the first stopping point followed by a week's session each at Dallas, El Paso, Tex., and Phoenix. Aris., where the circuit ends the week of Nov. 9. But of course nobody ex pects that any of the horses that start in at Fort Wayne will be in at the finish at Phoenix. It is possible, of course, as was the case with Margin and a few others last season, but not altogether probable. Many Players of One Nam.

Reports of committees in charge of different details of the Golden Jubilee celebration of St. Joseph's Benevolent societies of the state, -which will be held in this city May 15, 10, 17. show that excellent progress is being made. There will be a number of visiting or ganizations, which will be accompanied by the drill teams and exhibitions will be given during the mammoth parade. The ladies of St. Andrew's church will have charge of the dinner that will be served on Sunday. May 15, which will be the "big" day.

TAFT WELL GUARDED When the President Arrives in New York, Corps of Po lice Watch Car. ENR0UTE TO NEW HAVEN (American News Service) New York, March 21. President Taft arrived in New York from Al bany at 7 o'clock this morning, and his private car, the Olympia, was trans ferred to the New England express, which left at 8 o'clock. The President was on his way to New Haven, where he attends a meeting of the Yale cor poration. After the Olympia had been trans ferred to the New England express, it was guarded by police captain Lantry, a sergeant and ten uniformed men. Detectives of the Central Office, as well as several secret service men who travel with the president, also watched the car. No explanation was offered for the somewhat unusual precautions which were taken to keep outsiders away from the car. During the time the Olympia remained In New York, Pres ident Taft was asleep. In the car with him was Earl Grey, Gov. General of Canada; Col. Trotter, his aide, Col lector Loeb and Capt. Archibald Butt, the president's aide. KETCHEL IS READY Will Enter Ring Wednesday for First Time Since Last October. TO FIGHT FRANK KIAUS (By Tad) New York, March 21 Stanley Ketch- el will enter the ring at Pittsburg on Wednesday for the first time since he was knocked out; in twelve rounds by Jack Johnson at Colma last October. Steve is to meet that Pittsburg bear cat, Frank Klaus, by name and if the cowboy is not in the very best of shape he will have a tough time of it stick ing the limit with the Klaus person. Steve has been taking it easy at Hot springs for the past month or so. and on three different occasions called off the match with Klaus. The Pittsburg scribes felt sure, that he was afraid of Frank, and for quite a spell were busy writing stories con cerning Steve's chicken heart. At last he sent word that he would be ready on the 23rd, and ready he will be. He finished up his hard work at the Springs and then Manager Johnny Igoe wired Johnny Loftus to meet the cowboy person upon his arrival in Pittsburg. "Pete, the goat," the local trainer, who is a very dear pal of Steve's left the city last night for Pittsburg. Ketcbel never had a bout within 5k miles of New York that Pete wasn't in on and this is no exception. Although it is but a six round affair. interest in it is great and the betting is bound to be strong over In the Smo ky City, where Klaus is a great favor ite.

FAIR CO-ED SUSPENDED Because it is alleged that Miss Mayo Ward, one of the most popular girls attending Earlham college, broke rules of the institution, she has been asked to withdraw for the re mainder of the term. While the fac ulty did not suspend Miss Ward, its action in asking her to withdraw amounts to practically the same thing. It is said that Miss Ward attended social functions in this city, without a chaperon. Miss Snepp, who is in charge of the girl's dormitory is said to have warned Miss Ward that she could not attend any more social af fairs without a chaperon. She is al leged to have violated the rule after the warning had been given. OBSERVE DYING REQUEST John Starr, aged OO years, a former resident of Richmond, died Saturday at the home of his daughter.

For over 5 years he resided in Rich mond and during his residence here was engaged in the feed business. For the past two or three years he had been making his home with his daugh ter near Pittsburg.
