To the Editor.' In ita report of the Y.
M. C. A. field sport , the Hancock Copper
Journal is either very much misinformed
or ia guilty of willful misrepresentation
In any case no journal baa auy right to
attempt to belittle such a splendid exbi
bition of manly athletic aa was given on
Monday last, to the large ot crowd that
baa e?er gathered to witness Y. 11. C. A.
porta in thi county. It is true that
most of the Hancock men declined to
participate for reason that are not con
aidereu Tery manly py tnose no are
able to judge of the merit of the contro
versy, but the spjctators, nevertheless,
enjoyed the event tuont heartily. In the
competition last year Hoone waa ad
toitted a a member ol the Y. M. C. of
Chicago. The rule reading "that only
member of the Y. M. A. shall be al
lowed to participate." If it had been
necessary, Itoone could easily have been
enrolled on the lint ol the Calumet Y. M.
C. A. before the event took place. Mr,
Bo " ne ia now competing aa an amateur
and admitted a such in the west. A to
Dr. Gregg and Mr. lwyer being in the
name cla as professionals, the case are
Tery different. Ir. drejrg formerly
taught athletic but readied doing so two
year ago, and i now practicing aa a
physician on the staff of the Tamaraxk
Mining company and where the American
Athletic Association rule applied to him
ne would te reinstated, wnicn is more
than would be done for the competitor
for 4tu or July purses. Aa to Mr. Dwver,
he is a professional athlete, in the strong
est sense 01 tne word and in no proper
sense comparable to vr. Uretrg, as Mr.
Iywer is at present earning a living by
thepuniual of athletics. Tnroughout the
whole of the topper Journals article
there run a nasty unkind tone, which is
undignified in a paper and not calculated
to prod ac Y. M. C. A. spirit. A far as
the track i concerned, the Calumet track
is rery fair for the short time taken in it
preparation. Of course the Hancock men
prefer their own track, but then Han
cock men like a good many things to go
their way and other tracks have rights.
A good way to settle these disputes
would oe to lorm an association entirely
apart trom the . M. C. A. to pasa on all
claims 10 amareursmp. ucn an asso
ciation should be composed of men who
are above the suspicion of being unduly
influenced by any local association or in
dividual and the local organization
should bind themselves to consider ths
decision of such a tribunal as final.
