Will ABOLISH HOPPLfS ON ASSOCIATION TRACKS American Trotting Association Will Bar all Straps After Year 1914 CHANGE WILL BE GRADUAL HE FANNED 1800 BATSMEN Chicago Nationals Have Recruit With Wonderful Strikeout Record ' Memphis, 'Tenn., May 6: The Rev. Dr. Mitchell, a-Mississippi minister of the Methodist, Church South, has c hanged his opinion, about baseball be ing a coio -Diooieu sport for mone tary gam only" nnd has renounced his Intention to bar hi son Robert, a .southern college star, from entering the professional end of the game Robert, therefore, will Join-the Chl cngo Cubs about Juno 1 nnd southern ers are anticipating a bright future for him. Young Mitchell has performed won "Vrs during his five years with the 1 nivrrsity of Mississippi. Ho has per lormeu numerous hltless. runless gnme nnd has struck out 1,800 bats men. The averge number of hits ho has nllnwed per game Is 1cm than three and his average strike-outs around the 13 notch. Chicago, May 6: The use of hobbles on tracks In munilbcMhlp of the Amer lean Trotting Association has been doomed and ufter 1914 the nags with the straps on their legs will have dls appeared. This move was decided upon yesterday when the members of tho association In bi-annual meeting at the Auditorium Hotel voted to ad opt the rule as drawn up by a Joint committee recently. The doing away of the straps will be gradual, their use being barred from 2-year-olds this year, from 3 year- old In 1911 and from 4-ycar olds In 1912. with absolute abolishment In 1914. The doing ' away with the straps for the side-wheelers was the most Important change, ' tnado at the meeting and was carried by a vote of G? to 33. Opposition to the abolishment de veloped with tho owners of half-mile track's, as It wus argued that the lar ger TWt of their entries came from pacers that are obliged to wear hob bles. The greater per cent of thoe who attended the meeting came pre pared to stand for doing away with the straps nnd carried tho vote; of many "of the members who could not attend. Secretary Knight had pre viously sent letters o officers of every association track, and It was found that nt lenst 90 per cent of them pre ferred to bar the use of hobles by the system of gradual elimination. Another change of more than minor Importance that was decided upon was the change made In tho nnatlnee rule. It will now be possible to crndu?t the matinee cards with bookmaklng nnd pool selling.

All across the country are strewn racing plants which represent 'an enormous, outlay and which .have ceased to pay dividends, or have been cut up Into residence property. ' ' In Illinois and Missouri racing ap pears to be a thing of the pat. The Chicago tracks. Harlem. Hawthorne and Worth, still lie Idle. Washington park lias been cut up Into building lots. The St. Louts tracks seem no more likely to be of use for racing am in than do those In Illinois. Kansas City Is dead so far as racing is concerned and the efforts to establish racing In Denver last summer was not successful. There Is no racing in Los Angeles, but at Oakland things aro running along nicely under the oral system of wag ering. I In Detroit the famous Grosse Polnte track is closed. Down In New Orleans the effort to re-establish tho sport seems to be spasmodic and not effective. It Is probable that there must be a change of racing Interest there before any great success will be met In the effort to get a bill favorable to the tunf through the legislature. At Hot Springs. Ark., Oaklawn, one of the most palatial tracks In the country, is Idle) as are also Respess' holdings Just outside the Valley of Va pors. .'It Is not an exaggeration to say that millions of dollars' worth of race track property Is Idle. The value of this property was, of course, dimlshed by at least half as soon ns raclmr was phohlblted. Race track stock dropped like a stone nnd today few men would care to Invest money In It. - ... . v . C .

He did so well that his father tied a string to him which may .pull him back from tho mlnor league any time. BEEMAN AND ROWETT. Will Known Wrestlers Will Meet in Catch-as-Catch-Can the 14th. Arrangements have been completed for a catch-as-catch-can wrestling match between John Rowett. cham pion Cornish wrestler of the world and Pearl Recman. who has won several contests In tho copper country during me past year. The match will take Place at the Nhpenilng theater a week from next Saturday, the 14th. It will be two best falls out of three. Jshpemlng men who have seen both Recman and Rowett on the mat ex press the opinion that they are even ly matched, though Rowett Is from ten to fifteen pounds heavier than Ree- mnn. says me Mining Journal. The latter Is considered one of the best catch-as-catch-can men In the coun try for his weight, which Is 16 nnnnns. There will be preliminaries before the main bout. As It will be Rowett's. fW appearance In a wrest ling contest here In several years, and the first time that Recman has ap peared In a match In thl county. It Is expected that the contest will be well patronized." ' "' Washington St. Louis .. .333 .230 GAMES FOR TODAY. National League. Ronton at Rrooklyn. Philadelphia at New York. American League.

Fun- MIGHT NUMBER PLAYERS Idea Seems to ba Meeting With Suc cess on the Coast Tho Idea of numbering the players, which Is being tried In the California league, is meeting with much success. Out on the coast every player has a number on his arm which allows the spectator to know who the man Is Im mediately he comes on the field. Oft times three or four players get mixed up In a play and unless you are a real fan and personally acquainted with all tho players you are unable to tell the names of the men. With the number on the arm, you can tell at a glance what man made the put-out by look ing at the number on his Arm and then referring to your program. The success with which it ban met on the coast may bo the means of the big leagues adopting the same method. This should work well with clubs that carry about twenty-five players about with them. The spectators can tell without the umpire announcing it whenever a man bats for another or whenever pitchers are changed. Kvery man on the team has hh num ber on the programme. A report from an Antonio Is to the effect that the condition of John T. Rruch, owner of the Olant. Is on th ADVISED NOT TO BET -jack' jonnion Sends Advice to His Friends in Chicago. Chicago, May 6: Jack Johnson wired n cloe friend here from Ran Francisco last night telling him not to bet any money on the coming fight until he was advised further. The telosrram also Mated that the death of Tommy McCarthy had given the church people, who are opposed to the Independence day contest, ammu nition for their struggle against the big fight. Several thousand dollars are being held by sporting men in the colored belt to bet on Johnson, nnd the men who have this money sav thev will have more before July 4. Many bets already have been made, the colored people getting as good as 10 to C for their money. Pittsburg, Tu., May G.tvcraII was very effective; striking out seven men. - R. II.

SPORTING EDITOR'S NOTES LnFltte, once n Tiger, Is pitching good ball for the JerFey City club. Those pitchers on the Chicago Am erican list certainly deliver the goods, whether it be early spring or late In tho fall. In Chicago Sunday tho Cubs and Pittsburg Pirates oudrew the Detroit Tlarers and the Chicago Sox by over 5,000. Roston's team Is stron. and yet It Is questionable If it will be able to beat out . either Detroit or Philadel phia. The, team looks as If It should tlnisii ju.u where it did last year third. Washington Star. When the final history of. baseball Is written the remarkable staying nualitles of Joe McGlnnlty will do- serve a chapter all by themselves. The West Point team seems to bo one of the best In tho educational arena this season. It has been clean ing up everything that has come along. . i : ......
