He offered O'Brien or Pond for An'derson.but Billie | liaruie wanted a few days to think about it. The deal may be made tins week. Ed Hanlon's critics claim that Ed is working Dr. McJames and Hughes be yond the limit of their games and pre dict that the medico and the Californian of the milky-way locks will flop by the wayside ere the championship race' lias reached the fourth furlong pole unless Ed calls a halt 011 his two stars. Rochester wants to buy Arthur Wagner, Butch's brother. Washington's response was:—"Wagner is a regular on our team, and can't let you have him at any figure." Elmer Smith's catch of Fred Clarke's fly in deep centre in the tenth inning Sunday was a brilliant bit of fielding. Had the ball dropped safe the Colonels would have scored a victory. "How is tbe rowdy ball rule work ing?" was asked of J. I'onlinson Brush. Frank Dwyer's string of victories is unbroken. lie lias pitched five games and every one of them lias been won by tlie Reds. In the first game lie pitched he was forced to retire because of lack of control, but the game was won, never theless. Says the Sporting Life:—It is stated that Colonel Rodgers of the Philadelphia club, will bring charges against Joe Kelley before Brush's "Board of Disci pline." Manager Hanlon announces that he will take the Board into court if it proceeds against Kelley. Good! Here's hoping lie doesn't weaken on that proposition. "I have picked the Baltimores, and 1 will not go bak on my pick. I will say, however, that this is the first time 1 ever saw Cincinnati had a team that I thought had a chance for the championship. I think this team will be one-two-three sure," says Tim Hurst. Now that Pullman lias at last got Dexter and Stafford botli into the game, all lie has to do is to put Wagner back on first, and the team will begin to play winning ball.—Louisville Exchange. The Delehanty family is well repr e sented in the game. Ed is with Phila delphia, Tom is at Newark, Joe with Paterson, and Jim, the baby—twenty years old, at that—is the star third base man of the Southern League, playing with Montgomery. The "Kid" is per haps the best of thfe family. He is as scrappy as McGraw, and hits quite as well as Ed. It is likely he will be in the big league in a year or two. It is said that when Mr. Pullman re turns lie will bring that long-needed pitcher witli him. If lie does not, he will at least have a line on where lie ex pects to get him. Several members of the Louisville team are particularly bitter against Um pire Cushman. They are also sore on McDonald and O'Day. Unless the patronage at the National I/'ague base ball games improves there is reason to believe that a reduction of expenses will take place before the sea son is more than half over. 31 to lie tan W. of the of for of hold the 1.35 of lias but The also time Half the ing k ' ck ' a ,a Baltimore", or a cold glare, a la Boston.

Sammy Kelly has challenged Dave Sullivan to another fight at 1LS pounds and a side bet. Joe Goddard, who is showin Lyceum this week, will meet ynski at the arena on May 27. Justice Freedman, in the New York Supreme Court, yesterday, dismissed the action brought by the Arena Athletic Club against "Kid' "Jack" Everhardt, the pugilist, to en join them from sparring under the aus pices ol any New York club except the Arena Club. < ? Tom O'Kourke lias signed Sol Smith and George Dixon' to box before the Lenox Club on June 0, and Smith may be depended upon to strain every nerve to gain a decesive victory. He lias al ready had two chances with Dixon, one at Coney Island and the other at San Francisco. The match will be at 122 pounds, weigh in at fi p. m., and the weight is to Dixon's liking. The Olympic Club of Athens, I'a., is preparing for the reception of a big crowd. The advance sale of tickets gives every indication of a big turnout of fistic lovers; in fact, Manager Deady says there is bigger sale than ever before in the his tory of the club, and adds tliat while "Remembering the Maine," not to lose tabs on the train time, 7.45 and 8 o'clock. ; at the foe Cho K. 110 2 Dug Mcl'artland and E. and 1 E. 1 1 and Mac E. 2 CYCLING. Dave Shaefer realizes that his game with Jimmie Mitjhael will not be as easy tliis season as it was in '(17, but lie is confident that his pacing system is superior to anv other in this country. During the early part of the week Farnwalt and De Moulin rode an un paced third mile on the tandem on the Woodside Park track in 31 seconds flat. This is two-fifths of a second faster than the world's record for the distance. W. E.

Wo,it was received this Gong Both morning to the effect that Edouard Taylore will come to Philadelphia on Tuesday next with his army of pacemakers. Manager Kennedy left for Waltham, Mass., to superintend the shipping to Philadel phia of the new multicycle which Tay lore will use in his championship races during tlie coming season. In Taylore's outfit of pacing machines there are five quads, four quints and three sextets, all built to the little Frenchman's order. Taylor is in prime fettle for his twenty mile match race with Frank Starbuck, which marks the opening of the racing season at Willow Grove on May 28. Starbuck is putting on the finishing touches at Willow Grove and confidently expresses himself as being sure of beat ing Taylore. Tom Linton, who is riding in America this year, was the first rider in the world to ride 30 miles and subsequently 31 miles, in the hour. He is ambitious to add another mile to tlie present record, and before the close of the sea son lie will, assisted by fast pacemakers, make the effort. He is confident that lie can lide 33 miles in the hour. Bald will make his first start of the season tomorrow afternoon at Manhat tan Beach in the onc-mile national L. A. W. Championship. Eddie McDuffee, the present joint holder of the world's mile paced record of 1.35 2-5 made last fall, paced Bliss of Chicago, for tlie mile record three years previous to that time and aided Bliss to lower tlie mark to 1.51. McDuffee is now preparing to take another slice off the mark and feels that 1.33 is possible. W. W. Hamilton, who held the record of 1.39 1-5 from the spring of '90 until along in '97, was a pacemaker himself for Dirnberger of Buffalo, in tlie spring of '95, when that rider lowered the record from 1.47 2-5 to 1.45 at Louisville. Tlie bicycle track at Point Breeze, which lias been tinder the ban for some time, was yesterday reinstated and ar rangements will be made shortly to hold first-class race meets there. Big prizes will be offered. A cablegram from London states that the one-mile, paced, bicycle record of 1.35 2-5, held jointly by Eddie McDuffee, of Boston, and J. \V. Betts, of London, lias been broken by J. Platt-Betts, who but recently returned from Australia. The new time is 1.3$ flat. l'latt-Betts also lowered the quarter, half and three quarter miles, and the one kilometre records during the performance. His time for the quarter was 23 seconds, the Half 40 3-5; three-quarters, 1.10 3-5, and the kilometre, 58 3-5. The record was broken on the Cutford track. The tim ing was by Pembroke Coleman, official timekeeper of the National Cyclists' Union, and is official. of of AQUATICS. There is a serious disagreement in re gard to tlie date of the Yale-Harvard Cornell race, and there is good authority for the statement that Yale, and with Payther Buffalo, bout Frank her Harvard, has made a final represen tation to Cornell demanding that the race take place on June 25. Commence ment exercises, thev claim, come on the 23d, and the big ball game on the 24th, Tbe fact that Cornell has already de clared that it will be impossible for her to row on Saturday, the 25th, owing to the fact that her crews would be unable to resume training at Saratoga until couple of days before the regatta them, apparently has made little difference.

Fuiexi) Harvey:— 1 thought that 1 would drop you a line to let you know how I am getting along in my training. 1 fight lyd Mcl'artland twenty-five rounds on Monday night, before the Lenox Athletic Club of this city, at 134 pounds, which is just one pound above the lightweight limit. I wanted to fight at 133 pounds, hut McPartland could not get any lighter so we made tlie match at ttiis weight, 134 pounds. This will prove that I am a light weight, and not as some papers would have the public believe a welterweight. I have an offer from Sail Francisco to tight Charley McKeever, but lie insists on catch weights, then he said lie would box me at. 145 pounds (this is Philadel phia's lightweight). We then offered to fight him at 142 pounds, weigh in at 0 o'clock, but as yet have net heard from him. You must remember this is giv ing him nine pounds over my beat weight, 133 pounds. I am pretty confident of beating Mc Partland on Monday night. The betting is $100 to $90 in my favor. I will look for some of my Wilmington friends on the night of the battle. I will now close with regards to iny friends at home. I remain as ever, Sincerely Yours, ' Jack Daly. Woodbine Hotel, High Bridge, N. Y. the A. of to is off to of The McCoy-Ruhlin Fight.
