Jersey City at Montreal. Newark at Toronto. Worcester at Buffalo. Providence at Rochester. Montreal took the second game of the series from Jersey City in the Canadian town. Tlie Royals just hammered Mc Cann around an even dozen times and got half as many runs. Jersey City faced Magee and they could not find him. Only three hits did the visitors get and there was a close call for a shut out, but they got one home in the third. The game was mainly a pitchers battle and Magee got all the best of it. Oakes, Ilalligan and Carr got a single each. The visitors played a very poor fielding game giving McCann the worst kind of support. Mach and Carr seemed to he running a race to see who could do the most damage and they made a pretty even match of it. Oakes played his first game in left field since his accident here and made a bungle of the only chance he got. Tlie score:— MONTREAL. R. H. O. A. E.

BASEBALL MUDDLE Houghton Denies Receiving Money and Causes a Sen sation-Case to Be Re opened. J.. Houghton, of the Knickerbocker A. C.. who was suspended a few days ago for receiving money for playing baseball on the “Cherry Diamond” team has created a sensation by a flat-footed denial of having ever received a cent for his services. Houghton and another player. J. Kehler, was named as the men who had to be paid for their work on the amateur diamond and they were relegated to the professional ranks at a joint conference of the Amateur Base ball League and the K. A. C. athletic committee. With reghrd to the case Mr. Houghton says: “In May last I played one game with the Knickerbockers against the Seventh Regiment and I do not remember even gettihg my supper for playing, let alone any money. Soon after I sailed for London, England, where I had been until last Tuesday. During my absence, however, some person made this charge against me. thinking probably I would never see or hear anything about it. I am of the opinion that a thorough in vestigation is necessary, and then it will be found that there are one or two players still on the team who received the" pay I am charged with receiving.” A copy of his statement was also sent to James E. Sullivan, captain of the K. A. C.. who immediately wrote to Jlr. Sears ordering the case to be re opened. From what can be gathered of the muddle it is more than likely that Houghton will be vindicated. STEVENS MEETS DOHERTY English Champion Meets Rich ard, of Hoboken, But Rain Stops Play. The tennis at the Longwood Cricket Chib yesterday was disappointing. Large crowds gathered to see the English men. It. F. and H. L. Doherty, in what was thought would be good matches. They won their match in the Eastern doubles in the morning and H. L. Doherty in the afternoon defeated J. C. Neely in straight sets. R. F. Doherty played a set and a half with Richard Stevens, of Hoboken, but rain put an j end to the games. Both Dohertys have withdrawn from ' the tournament in singles and the rest ; of the week will confine themselves to I playing in the Eastern doubles in the I hope of winning this event, so thnt they may meet the Western champions, Col lins and Waldner. at Newport next, month. In addition M. D. Whitman, the former American champion, also withdrew, so that, with the exception of L. B. Ware and Holcombe Ward, there is no first class player left in this event. An explanation of the withdrawal of the Dohertys and M. D. Whitman from the Longwood tenuis singles wan given THE BABBEB’S EXCUSE. r«Y ou» • Woreo riAtH RfVWttl “Your hands are very dirty, barber.” “Yes, sir. You’re the fust shampoo this morning, slr.“ out tonight. The Dohertys sny they have nothing to gain by playing matches in the Longwood singles. To play in the national tournament it is necessary for them to win the Eastern doubles, so they will reserve their strength for these matches. If they win the Eastern doubles they will play at Newport against the Western champions. Mr. Whitman withdraws as he believes he is in form for the international event and does not care to exert himself in the Longwcod matches. ATHLETES’ TRAINING. What President James Sulli van of the A. A. U. Says on 'This Important Topic. Mr. ".Tames Sullivan, president of the A. A. TI„ in his latest edition of the Athletes Guide, says the following about training:— >• It is said that “poets are borne not made.” and so it is that some folks claim that distance runners are born to run by nature rather than brought out or developed. It is true, staying powers and endurance are predominant in some men. yet there is no young man existing who cannot run one, five or ten niiiles, | just as he might walk a similar dis tance. provided he does not overtax the powers of his system in forcing the pace. ' It must be borne in mind, that to acquire excellence in running as in anything else. ' one must devote a great deal of time and attention to training, preparation and development. It is upsual for a young fellow to enter into -open competition with, perhaps, only a couple of weeks’ preparation, and getting defeated, he is somewhat and sometimes entirely dis couraged. and “thrown down the gaunt let,” an dthinks no tnore of racing till, by and by. his enthusiasm being again worked up through the medium of an at tractive set of games, he again enters and is defeated, and again relapses into retirement. telling his friends that “he was not made to run” and has mistaken his vocation. This is a great mistake. Where is the famous man of today in any walk of life'who does not owe his ■ final snceess to patience and persever- ; ante? These qualities command success j in long distance running as in other pur- j suits: in fact, go hand in hand with sue- ! cess. All, of course, cannot excel, but j every young man can learn to run well i and fast, secure numerous prizes, if he I •practices the motto, “patience and per- j severance command success,” and, in ad- j ditioc, takes sufficient training to develop j his latent ability and pays moderate at- j tent ion to the laws of health and the persevation of a “sound mind in a sound body.” Regarding distance running and those best adapted to it, although ex perts have gone so far as to sny a man must be of a certain style of physique, height, weight, tempermanent, etc., it will suffice to say that such is bosh. Xo rule can be laid down in this instance. It is as natural to ran as it is to walk, therefore, we are allrunners, just as we i are waiKC-rs. A man must not bo an invalid or of sic-idy nature, or in other words, needs only a sound physical constitution. By thjs it must not be understood that a man miist be able to toy witli a 50 pound weight, or possessed of an enor mous appetite; he simply needs ordinary strength and health, follow the direc tions herein given, and the rest will come as a matter of course. As to whether a man is a sprinter or a dis tance runner: When a youth first enters the athletic arena, lie .will take to his own game just as a fisli does to water. Nature will assert itself in this case, too, and unawares at that, for if you ask any hundred yards runner why i'.e is a sprinter and not a distance runngi, lie will answer, “I always felt like sprinting and having begun it. stuck to it;” and if any of the prominent milers is asked why he isi a distance runner, lie will doubtless tell you lie took a natural element in long races and never thought .of sprinting. When it is decided to go into open competition and try one's luck on tlie “cinder track.” an elementary course of training, extending over a period of at least three mouths, must be gone through. About seven teen years is tlie best age to commence, though a man is not too late to go in for athletics at from twenty-three to twenty-five years. A man can. of course, run at forty. It is different witli a man who is already in athletics; instances are on record wher men have made their best records | at twenty-nine or thirty years of age. ! to wit, W. G. George and W. Cummings, tlie famous Englishmen, whose names are sufficient introduction to our Pend ers. It is hoped that a man lias? not gone into dissipation- before commencing to train for athletics. Dissipation is tlie enemy of life and ruin of mda and of athletics. Enjoying life is not detri - 4 / mental to racing, such as an odd cigar, a little- spirits and so on. It is not the use of anything, it is the abuse. CRICKET MAHERS. Australian Team Decide Not to Visit America—Interesting Fall Schedule. Shortly after the adjournment of the Associated Cricket Clubs’ meeting yester day. the secretary received teh long de layed cablegram from Major YYnrdill, stating that the Australians had decided not to visit the United States on this trip; consequently in view of the decision previously arrived at by the eomittee. it may safely be said there will be no inter national* matches this fall, unless nego tiations are opened from the other side. In spite of the cancellation of the in ternational matches with the Australians the fall schedule will not prove lacking in interest, as in addition to the annual international match with the Canadians, which is to be played in Philadelphia some time in September, the following important matches have been arranged: August 2, Al-Philadelphia vs. All-New York, at Elmwood: August 1G, Gentle men of Philadelphia vs. English Resi dents, at Elmwood; August 30, All-Phila delphia vs. All-New York, at New York; September 1, winenrs of Halifax Cup vs. Rest of Philadelphia, at Manheim: Sep tember 8, Gentlemen of Philadelphia vs. Colts, at Wissahickon. TIGERS BEATEN. - Crack Tennis Player of Prince ton, R. D. Little, Lost Yes v ? - • V terday at Kenwood. Kreigh Collins, of Kenwood wrested the Western tenuis championship in sin gles from R. D. Little, of Princeton, yes terday, at the Kenwood Country Club tournament in one of the most brilliant and bitterly contested matches ever wit nessed in this part of the country. Col lins, by perfect play, succeeded in win ning the first two sets, 7—5. 7—5. When the third set was commenced Collins im mediately took the lend and for a time it looked as if he would make it three straight. Little, to the surprise of everybody, however, by excellent play and good headwork, succeeded in winning the set 2— G. In the fourth set Collins again took the lead, but soon was overhauled by Little, and despite the Kenwood player’s best efforts the Easterner won the set 3— G. Tliis made the match even, each having won two sets. They both played perfect tenuis in the next set, bnt Col lins used better headwork and finally won the set and match G—3. HANDBALL.

Harry Forbes, the bantam champion, and Mike Memsic of Chicago met in a rattling six-round bout at Chicago on Monday night. Memsic, although a featherweight, has a fine record and more than held his own. Early in the first round Forbes dropped his opponent with a shar.v left hander on the jaw. Memsic was up smartly aud went after Forbes. The latter’s cleverness was too much for him and no damage resulted. In the third Memsic was also knocked down, and the sound of the gong saved him. AJ, the end of the sixth round Forbes was the agressor aud received the award. Fool. An important pol match between play ers from the Dickinson Association and the Bergen Republican Club will take | place next Monday night. Where the : games will be played Wil be decided at a : meeting to be held Thursday night.

SIMON-PURES TO MEET Qqod ft&cing at Atlantic City Last Night—Profitable Sea » son So Far—Notes. Lottie Brandon, the young woman who is under the maugemeut of Toni Eck, made a world’s cycle record at the Vailsburgh truck yesterday afternoon. She followed a single motor pacing machine for one hour, and traveled in that time thirty-three miles and 750 yards. The best previous figure by a woman was twenty-five miles 125 yards, made on the Paris Velodrome by Mile. Liz zette. (Jad Neidner, It. M. Alexander and Doc Morrow acted as timers, and T. .1. Grady and Jack A'eville were the scorers. Joe Judge was the pacemaker. His wheels had wind shields attached. There were three false starts. Once the motor failed to work. Then the youug woman got out of her position. The third failure was due to the fact that she lost her side comb and her hair blew in her face so that she could not see. On the fourth trial she got away handily and followed the choo-choo stea dily: She reeled out miles in 1.44 and 1.55, and although she dropped back from the machine once or twice she soon caught it.

The first of a series of five races which have been arranged between the four fastest motor-paefed fololwers in Ameri ca to determine who will be entitled to the honors of champion pace follower in 19011, will take place at Manhattan Beat'll on Saturday afternoon. Albert Champion, of France; Floyd MacFar land, of San Jose, Cal.; Harry Elkes, of Glens Fails, and Bobby Walthour, of At lanta. are the stars who will ride for supremacy, and the lovers of this style of racing may expect a real treat when this quartette come together. Champion by virtue of his many vic tories—he having scored over twenty eight wins this season, defeating Elkes, Walthour and MacFarland and all the rest of the pace followers and establish ing new world’s record—is entitled to first honors up to date. Elkes has in turn defeated Champion, Walthour and Mac Farhind. and Walthour, by hanging up new world’s records for twenty miles last week, regains some of his lost lau rels; MacFarland has defeated Elkes and Walthour, and since his recoverey from the fracture of his collar hone has been riding in great form. There is no doubt of these four men being in a class by themselves. Eacli rider will be equipped with the latest and most improved ten horse-power motors on Saturday, besides each will have ex tra machines to follow in case of a breakdown. This race will be twenty miles with flying start. The, usual amateur races, with Cham pion Marcus L. Hurley, Billington. Glasson, Goerke, Sehlee, Vanderveer, Smith and Dove and the rest of the stars to try-for the handsome prizes off ered will complete the programme. Secretary Merrihew of the American Motor League said yesterday that he re gretted anything having been made pub lic concerning the plans of the organiza tion to test the legality of the arrests of autoinorbilists and motor cyclists that are being so persistently made on Long Islahd. He admitted that arrangements had oeen made to have arrests made next Sunday for the purpose of testing the law and the accuracy of the charges, but the authorities having been forwarned, ho thought; would upset the plans. What probable'that the League would first made, he declined to say. He thought it tancc covered and timing, but would not make its fight op the question of dis tance covered an dtiming, but would not say so officially. One thing he did say was that the League would defend the case of W. H. Owen, who was arrested under the name of AV. II. Dubois, a week ago Sunday. Isaac B. Potter, for merly president of the League of Ameri can AA'heelinen, is counsel for the American Motor League. He declined to express an opinion officially yesterday or say what would be done, but in the course of ah open conversation he said it was manifestly unfair to pass a law that imposed a penalty for crossing cer tain artificial boundaries, such as town ship line without providing that such a line'shall he plainly indicated by signs. According to Counsellor Potter there should be a sign on every public highway indicating the village, city and town limits, as long as the Cocks law is in force. / .; . ■ At the board bicycle track Inst night in Atlantic City, George Leander defeat ed Ray Duer in a fifteen mile paced race In the last mile Leander spurted ahead, winning by nearly a lap. Two-M}le Amateur Handicap--Final heat wpii by Van Durou, scratch; Dea l'Otf. scratch, second; Ilrowa, loO yards, third. Two .Mile Professional Tandem Motor —Won by Thompson and Betffce, Can ada; Italy and Babcock, New York, sec ond. Time, 3 minutes 12 seconds. Fiftemi-Mile Professional, -Motor-Pac ed—Won by George Beamier, Chicago: Bay Duer, Buffalo, second. Time, 23 minutes 33 seconds. Interest in cycle racing seems to be on the increase this year, as never be fore have race meet promoters exper ienced such good returns. The interest, moreover, is not limited to any particu lar form of the spirt, but extends to sprint races, long distance affairs and motor paced contests. Saturday, for in stance, witnessed two meets in this dis trict. both well attended and splendidly contested, in the National Championship Grand Circuit meet at Vailsburg and the four cornered motor paced twenty-mile race at Manhattan Beach. Walthour's record breaking performance in estab lishing new figures over Champion’s per formances at the same place was note worthy. At Boston Harry Hikes for the second time in the week defeated Albert Champion, the French rider who has donesuch wonderful work this year be* hirnl pace. The foreigner was not in the best form, but even then made Hikes ride to win. Next Saturday at Manhat tan Beach there will be one of the best races of the kind that New Yorkers have had an opportunity to witness for some time. Hikes, Champion, Wnlthour and MaeFarland will meet in the first of a series of five mile races, two to take place at Manhattan eBaeh, two at Bos ton, and the fifth and probably deciding race in the city that gives the best sup port to the previous races. The first race is at Boston tonight, the second at Manhattan Beach on Saturday, the third at Boston, on Aug. 0, and the fourth at Manhattan Beach, on Aug. 9. From the quality of the four competitors re cords are very apt to go by the board, although new figures have been set up almost every meet that the men have competed in this year. There must be a limit somewhere that will be reached. The old wheeling route to Jamaica and the Merrick road, that by the way of Glenmore avenue, is now in better riding condition than the new Way, commonly used, direct up Fulton street or Jamaica avenue, as it is variously called. Gleu ntore avenue lias ben resurfaced. To fol low it out to the old city line at Eldert lane, formerly Enfield street, then take the Rockaway road to Locust avenue and ride past the new running horse track to the Merrick road is far preferable to go ing along on the much worn asphalt and broken brick paving of Jamaicq avenue, where trolley cars, funeral coaches and farm wagons constantly threaten acci dent. Tlie New Motor Cycle Club will have its first “photograph run” on next Sun day. The group picture will be taken in Central Park, after which there will be a blind run led by two members, wlio will be chosen by lot. On the following Sunday, August 10, the “motor-bis” will teuf-teuf to Greenwiok. Conn., and back. This young club is mapping out for itself a programme that promises more ac ticity than any automobile club and com mon cycling club combined. BOARD OF STREET AND WATER conn ission e rs.
