The Bisous had a great ! crowd of rooters out to help them, but it was no use. The visitors had lost quite : enough games aud they were determined. They both played fast as a fury, and everybody was anxious. That accounts for the unusually large number of errors made by both teams. The home team lost Uy a sopre of 11 to 6. They were the best with the hat, hitting McCann eight times, but they could not place them very well and were held down. <. “'Doc” Amole was in the box for Bnf- ; faio and he certainly pitched a good j game, but the sluggers were in form and j hit him eight times when they did the j most good. It was a peculiar game, j Jersey City was hopelessly lost until the : eighth inning, when the cudgels got to ] going right and the Buffaloes got to mak- ; ing bad errors in a bunch. The result ; was eight runs for Jersey City in that j inning alone and the victory was a cinch. ! Armole gave way to Gray in the seventh : aud it was in the next inning that lie ' got a bad pounding. McCann did the ' work for Jersey City and he was hit . freely. The score:— JERSEY CITY. R. H. O. A. E. I Oakes.

Lend'ng Semi-Professional Teams to Meet Todiy ti\ West Side Park The Pearsalls will play tlie Star Ath letic Club of Newark on the diamond at West Side Park this afternoon. This is a game that is worth going a long distance to witness, as the teams are about evenly matched and should put up the real thing as a baseball article. Both teams are very anxious to score a victory as they arc the leaders in the semi professional class of this State. Flic game will be called at 4 o'clock. The Warren A. C. did not put in an appearance to play the game scheduled with the Jersey Bells yesterday, so the latter claim the game by a score of 9 to 0. Tomorrow the Bells play the World Beaters at Columbia Park. John Griffin of the Old Reliables will probably pitch, as Crowley, the regular twirler, threw his arm out last Saturday in a thirteen inning game against the Orioles. The Bells would like to hear from all teams averaging i4 or 15 years of a go. Ad ! CUTTING REMARK. i . * i • Barber: "Did you hear about the bad scrape Jaggsby got Into yev terday?" .

Clothier, champion of the State of Pennsylvania, won new laurels yesterday morning when he defeated Holcombe Ward, of New York, in the final match of the Long rood single?. The contest was one of the best exhi bitions of tennis since the beginning of the tournament on last Monday and four sets were necessary before a winner could be decided. The scores were:—2—j, 0— i, 0—3, t>—3. By his victory Clothier had the privi lege of challenging William A. Earned, present holder of the much-prized Eong wood bowl. The holder won the trophy last year and has one leg on the cup. In order to become his property he must defend it successfully for tiirce years, though uot necessarily consecutive years. The challenge match will be played this afternoon and the contest promises, to be most interesting. Yesterday afternoon the matches were in the semi-final round of the Eastern doubles championship. Ware and Earned were matched against the Doherty brothers and received a first-class drub bing in four sets, the Englishmen drop ping one set. the third, to the Americans. I. C. Wright and W. J. Clothier met the Wrenn brothers in the afternoon aiso. the latter pair winning three out of the four sets played. The results of the af ternoon will bring the Doherty brothers into the final round against the Wrenn brothers and some great tennis is looked for when those veterans piay. The crowd that witnessed the doubles matches afternoon numbered 1,200, the biggest that ever saw any day’s play on these courts. The playing of the Wrenn brothers did not raise great hopes for victory over the Englishmen. Bi o Wrenn was away off his usual good form, and unless there is a decided im provement in their play the Chicago men will not be able to stem the tide which seems to be sweeping the Dohertys on to an easy victory. The Doherty brothers were never pushed to their limit in the match with Ware and Learned. The latter played brilliantly, but bis partner was exceed ingly nervous. They were completely outclassed in every way. Lon g wood Cup Singles—Final round —W. .T. Clothier beat Holcombe Ward, 2—6, 9—7, (1—3. 11—3.

It was stated by some of the eommittc, that, according to report, sev eral of the local societies had announced their intention to enter certain weli knoww local bicycle riders and runners connected with outside clubs. The result of the discussion was that the committee determined to go over the list of all eutris before they are announced and will pass upon any athlete about whom there may be some question. The games are to be closed contests, according to the American Athletic Union’s rules, which are to govern. One of the rules which it was stated will be strictly enforced is that no ath lete can enter who has represented any other outside organization during the mouth previous to the field day. The same question developed after the games last year, and trouble with the Amateur Athletic Uuion resulted. The committee now intends to be on the look-out to see that uo such happening will occur this time. The events to be congested are:—75 yard dasb. handicap; 22Pyard run, han dicap: 440-yard, novice; 880-yard run. handicap; half mile bicycle race, scratch; one mile run, handicap: running broad jump, handicap; running high jump, han dicap; putting sixteen pound shot, handi cap; one mile relay, four men to con stitute a team; two mile bicycle race, handicap. Gold watches are to be awarded to the winners, and second men are to get silver medals. The society scoring the most points is to be given a trophy, and tlie winning relay team will get a banner. Tlie entries are to ciose with Frank Cog lan, at Institute Hall, on August 10. At the Ringside. “Tommy” Ryan and “Kid” Carter have been matched to fight tlie first week in September at Fort Erie. Tlie men are to weigh in at 3 o’clock on the day of the fight at 158 pounds. The contest will be for tlie middleweight champion ship and 75 per cent, of a $5,000 purse. ,the 25 per cent, going to the loser. The match, which the manager of tlie Inter national A. C. arranged, will bo finally settled as soon as Ryan, who is in Kan sas City, signs the agreement, which was sent to him the other day, Of his doing this there is not the slightest doubt, as he had already wired his .acceptance of the offer to the Fort Erie CluA NEWS OF , THE WHEELMEN Hurley and Billington to Meet Tomorrow in Big Race and Bitter Fight Is Expected. AUTO ENDURANCE TEST Races Arranged for Between New York and Boston— Walthour to Try for Record. Hurley, Billington, Glassort, Schlee, Forest, Washington. Dove and Vauder veer, with forty others, will tight out the amateur events. The novice race has re ceived thirty-five entries. Tlie motor cycle race will have seven starters, the best drivers of these ma chines in the vicinity of New York. An unlimited pursuit race will he rid den by George Kulhke,, of Brooklyn, and Ralph Do Palma, of Manhattan. Secretary S. M. Butler, of the Automo bile Club of America, returned from Boston on Thursday, where lie went to overlook the course of the 500-mile reli ability ruu, which will start from the club house in Fiftli avenue. New York, on October 0. At at meeting of the club yesterday it was decided to touch at the following points: — Norwalk. Bridgeport. New Haven, Hartford. Springfield and Wor cester. leaving Thursday morning and reaching Boston on Sunday. The return trip will follow the same route, starting Monday morning and reaching New York UU k’llllUill . The minimum speed will be eight miles an hour. An average speed of fifteen miles an hour may be maintained under the rules qf the competition. Each vehi cle will tarry an official observer ap pointed by the club. These members were elected:—Will iam Howard Barnard. Charles W. Place. Solomon Hanford, Xew York, and Frederick M. Ayres. Indianapolis. Amateur Champion Marcus Hurley and Teddy Billington. otherwise known as the “Pride of Vailaburglt.” will meet in a half-mile handicap race at the Vails bnrgh board track to-morrow arid there promises to be an interesting contest as tile result. Hurley and Billington are team mates, representing the Xew York Athletic Club. Until- the running of flic Morris Handicap on June 22 Hurley and Billington were fast friends. On that day. however, owing to a questionable verdict of the judges on the result of the above race, the two former pals and dubmates fell out and arc to-day the bitterest rivals on the track. The race in question is still fresh in the minds of those who saw it. The judges gave the race to Hurley, but the vast crowd thought otherwise, and voiced its opinion in an uproarious fashion. The time for the race was 57 3-5 seconds, two-fifths of a second better than the best previous world's record. Billington was surprised at the verdict, as he thought he had sure ly won. Hurley, howeverfi declared lie was certain the dace was a dead heat. He.took first prize, however, and a few days later Ted, with blood in bis eyes, walloped Hurley twice in scratch races /run off in Canada. Later lie beat the Xew Yorker in a five-mile scratch race at Manhattan Beach, and announced that accounts with Hurley were about squar ed. Hurley, considerably nettled, has worked very hard to defeat Billington ever since. Aitnougn ne is me eapuuu 01 the Xew York A. C. bike team, the two do not speak, and. several races have been lost by either one of tbe.se riders refusing to aid the other by a sufficient amount of pace. Tomorrow’s half-mile handicap will be known, on the card as the ‘‘Teddy B. Stakes,” in honor of Billingtou. The latter is now in splendid form and is training faithfully to not only win the race, but equal or better the previous best record performance for the distance. The struggle will be interesting, as both riders will probably start froto scratch. Hurley's stronghold is in half-mile han dicaps, but it would not be surprising if the reil-hea'ded champion had to ride himself "all out” to retain his previous laurels. Bobby M’althour, of Atlanta, who broke every ragord from one to twenty miles at Manhattan Beach last Satur day, hopes to better all of these figures today, when he is scheduled to meet Al bert Champion, of France; Floyd Mc Farland, of California, and Harry- Elkes, of Glens Falls, in a twenty-mile paced race. Elkes fell at Boston Thursday night. He is one of the gamest of pace follow ers aud if his condition warants he will line up today against the others. P. T. Powers said yesterday that he had re ceived no word from Boston, and this was a good indication that Elkes was not badly hurt and v^uld be on hand Satur day. All the riders are in great condition, as the miles they have been reeling off at Manhattan Beach indicate. Cham pion will no doubt push Wal-thour the hardest. Champion’s hour record-break ing ride shows him to be right for the struggle he must make today. The largest century ruu of the season will take place over the Long Island course tomorrow. The event is the fourth annual Veterans’ Invitation ruu. this year open to all, and its prestige gained in past years has resulted in >ts six divisions all filling so well that with the entries which will be made and ac cepted at the-, start, the full limit of six hundred riders will unquestionably be reached. The quality and beauty of the medals arc so much above the. ordinary that they ■W’' " ? "f will attract many additional late entries. \Vhich limy be made at tlie start of the run.

Big Card to Be Offered Tomor row at Champion Egan’s Court in Mercer Street. At the Jersey City Handball Club court in Slercer street, which is presided over by World’s champion Michael Egan, tomorrow there will be the usual club day programme of eoutests among the local players and in addition there will be several rooters from other courts in con tests with members of the club. Of late there has developed a surprising interest in the great game and the attendance at this popular home of the sport has grown so that there is often a crowd on hand that taxes the capacity of the large and comfortable gallery. Among those who wil Ibe at the court tomorrow are Michael Egan. John Egan. P. Flaherty, John Flaherty,'Ed. Hopkins, Dan Bru der and E. Ficke-ns the stars. They will all be seen in either singles or doubles and the sport promises to he of an espe cially high order. Champion Egan wil [take on a team and then those who attend the court will be treated to a great exhibition. Egan is in better shape than ever and is training for the winter season, when lie will have a number of important matches to play. A week from tomorrow a delegation of Philadelphia players will be at the court. There are in the Quaker town a number of fine players, and a team of the best will be on hand to meet Egan. Swimming. George Van Cleaf. the Iv. A. C. coach, found a tartar in his race at Coney Isl and on Wednesday in the person of a comparative novice. E. M. Adams, of Bath Beach. Adams won the quarter bv half a yard and emphasised once again the truth that no man is so good hut that a better can be found. Year after year new champions in almost every sport come forward. At present, however, in cylciug in Frank Kramer, and in pugilism in James Jeffries, theie world seem to be. some time yet to come before these two men are displaced from their pedestals. And sill it is bad prop hesying to make any such forecast, for George Dixon, the featherweight, who held his title too long, filially succumbed to McGovern, and the latter, supposed ly invincible, to "oYniig Corbett.” This is particularly true in this country, where atletes are turned out every day to snatch the laurels from the crowned heads. The great trouble seems' to be that, the chjimpioiis in everv sport do not know when to stop, and thinking them selves invincible continue until they go down to defeat.
