Club, requests all mem bers to assist Its first anniversary Thursday at 3:30 o'clock , p..-m., Oct. 22, at 1408 Harding streets lillillllllf PORT. J. Lee. J. Lee, the Negro jockey, who is rid ing in the East, continues to win races, not only does he land small purses, but goes after the large ones iu the same. manner. He is holding his own out East among all the country's best, and we hope he will continue the good work and win for himself a place beside Isaac, Murphy, Monk Overton, T. Williams, S. Purkins, J. Winkfieldr D. Austin and many other famous Negro jockeys, who have won fame upon the American turf. The colored boys have always been good riders; and now that it U a paying business, we hope they will continue to forge their way to the front ranks. The Outlook for Football. As the season prows older the anx iety of the iovf-rs of the gridiron sport become more anxious as to what ar ticle of the game will be dished out to them this year by the several teams in the city. From every quarter has come the usual annual wail about a shortage of material. No back field, no ends, no line men, no competent quarterback, and so they go it until you would imagine that the game this season would have to be; played with only three men to a side and the chalk lines to do the coaching. But every one has learned to regard dope as being dope, and to expect a high class of sport whether the coaches have available material or not. Some of the best teams in the South will be seen here this fall to meet Me harry and Fisk. Fisk has' so far scheduled Knoxville and Atlanta Bap tist College, and, of course, the Me- harry game for Thanksgiving. Coach Giles is also contemplating a game with Tuskegee at Tuskegee. These games alone make up a fairly good schedule, with probably some lighter gams sandwitched in. On Saturday the scrubs will take on Pearl High School. This will be a lively game. The High School boys, fresh from their victory over the defeat of the Walden Scrubs last Saturday, will go In determined to win. Their victory Saturday came as a surprise to many. but it was nevetheless a clean cut victory. Walden can always be depended upon to furnish a strong team, but, of course, to be in line on the dope, you must ring in the usual wail. True a large number of last year's team graduated, leaving many gaps tofill up, but when it is remembered that students enter Meharry every year who have finished TroWee-scTiboIs of the'eountf f and where athletics are conducted on a high plane, and where some of the best athletes in the country are de veloped, it will be seen that a coach of the Walden team has a decided ad vantage over those colleges that are not doing post-graduate work. However the case may be, the people are anxious that clean sport on a high order be furnished, and they stand ready to pay for it at a reasonable price. And they feel confident that the authorities at the universities will see to it that this Is done. Joe Cans, the greatest lightweight fighter the world has ever known, has at last lost the honor place. He may not be all in, but we hardly think there is enough left of him to bring him back into his own. He may be good for a few more short battles of C, 8 or 10 rounds, but the old man has played his last trump card and lost. He was without doubt, the most scientific fighter of his day; and with all due respect to the many younger men at the game there are none that are the equal of him when in his prime. Age was the only thing that could down the great Gans. Even when put against a young man, he gave a good account of himself, and only sur rendered when he had fought beyond human endurance and had gone down from physical exhaustion. The great est factor he had to depend upon was his grit and with that the old gladi ator entered the arena to face a young er man and his erstwhile vanquished foe. He was the last of a famous old school of men who, from time to time, have been before the public, and who are fast passing away. He is a Negro and this emphasizes the fact that the great glory that has come to him has been deservedly won, The "Black Shadow," as he was oft en called, was a man who had fought his way up from the bottom to a place where he had to be reckoned with when it came to settle the champion ship. Laboring under great odds, he won his battle and made a name that will always live in the pugilistic world The Negro has always been a factor in that branch of sport, and there have always bec-n good men among them in every class. No sooner has one gone than another has appeared, and. like Banquos ghost, they will not down We have had our Peter Jackson, our Geo. Dixon, our Joe Walcott, our Joe Gans and many others, and we still have Sam Langford, Jack Johnson and young Peter Jackson, all of whom are first-class men only waiting for a chance to show that the Negro is in the game to stay. There has nevert been any doubt about the Negro's ability as a fight er. He only wants a chance and when given that he more than makes good. The color line is being drawn closer every year. It seems to be the understanding not to give the Negro a chance; but the sporting Dtihlio that is the real supporter of the game demands good bouts and it is the one who will say, whether Mr. Negro must step down, and, out ; and if that is to be the case, we are thinking that he ha3 a long lease of life as a fighter in the pugilistic arena. It is hoped that there will soon appear another Ne gro champion lightweight. Football above all other sports is really a science and stands out as the most scientific sport now before the American public. True, baseball, ten nis, golf and many others have their share of admirers, but when it comes to football the others pale into insig nificance. .. 'No game to-day has as many different parts, as many plays, and as many different styles -of play as football. It takes a man with more than the average amount of nerve to play the game. No matter how pro ficient Ije .may, be in other things, when that nerve, or, rather, grit, is not there he is turned away by the Coach and pronounced "not good enough." Many a g'ood man is turned away because he. jias not that element of nerve necessary to face the many dif ficult tasks put before-him. You can always develop a player when he has the grit and; endurance, but when that is lacking you cannot use the man, no matter what his other good points may be. Speed is also a' factor in the new game. Now take a man with speed and little weight, plenty of grit, and he is a harder foe than a heavy one. We have had an example of "that right here in Nashville. Take a man of Al lison's build: he was small, very light, weighing scarcely more than one hun dred and fifty pounds, yet he was given a position over men much heavier than he, who seemed to be good men. put the Coach saw fit to give the pqsition to the man with speed,'- grit and endurance. Take the case of Marquess of Fisk, and you have the same thing demonstrated a small man, fast, grity and always dan gerous, evenj at the last, moment, apt to tear away" and by a long run snatch victory out of defeat. Time and again this thing has been done and it only goe3 to snojv that the man with the endurance i the one to be desired and who is the ! most dangerous at all times. "" , Then there , is experience which is also a "great-;factor and without it you have no team work, for a new man is iUs,A:s.aiw'iHSJande8peciaJi.yB1a1wheQ. against a strong team. Next comes the natural ability: one must have this and when you find it in a man, along with the other strong points, you have a star' of the first magnitude. Of course, they are not found every day; but' no city, has been more fortunate than Nashville. She has seen some of the best football players ever devel oped, and whenever they leave these institutions and' go to others they have no trouble making the team. It seems that they get the foundation work right, and the structure they build is always reliable and beautiful. There are but few cases where men have left these schools and gone to others where they have not made good. You often find on a team several stars, :mt no team work; this goes to say that each man has a duty to perform n every play and when one of them fails to do his part the formation is spoiled and the play is lost. Each man is only a part of the machine and when any one of them; fails, the ma chine has some lost motion and is not running smooth. But when you find eleven men, each doing his part at the right time and right place, then you have team work, and that team will always be a hard one to beat. Then you have that college spirit and that above all things is the most dan gerous., utten a team goes on the field outweighed and really facing a better team, but they will have so much of that college spirit that they are always fighting hard and the op ponent must always be on the alert, for at any moment they ma1 rise up and. amid the cheers of the loyal stu dent body, take away the victory when it seemed that defeat was their lot. The teams of Nashville have lost most of their old stars, but we are hoping that the coming season will find new men in the field to take the mantle and wear it with all the dig nity of the men who have gone out to battle with the problem of life. The Globe wishes them success, and may they be as brilliant in their life's work as they have been upon the grid iron. J. BLAINE BOYD. CONDOLENCE. The many relatives and friends Mr. and Mrs. William Crutcher, 1639 Patterson street, join with them to share a part of their grief and sor row over the loss of their little son William Edgar Crutoher, who was to that family a precious jewel, only liV' ing a short life of eighteen months While we feel it Is a hard task to give him up, yet we know It is heav en's gain, and on the day of the gen eral resurrection we shall see him again.
