"I think I'd like being in the big league again," says Sandow Mertes. "We are playing fast bull down in Columbus. J think I am capable of a faster game than I was in Philadelphia.

"Tannehill," says a Baltimore "has a peculiar swing of both linked together in a pretzel-like gyration, as a preliminary to delivering the ball.

Mr. Quinn, of Pittsburg, is no longer managing Peter Maher, and is now re ported to have Tom Sharkey in t ow. Billy Smith has gone to Chicago to train for his fight with George Ker win. A large sum of money changed hands on the McPartlandDaly fight. Tommy White, of Chicago, has written to the Lenox club asking ior a bout with Ben Jordan, tbe Englishman expected to arrive in the near future. John Henry Johnson wants to get on with Eddy Lenny, or any of that weight in this neighborhood. The Mercer county jury, of Trenton,N. J., lias dismissed the charges against Jolir. Smith, whose boxing bout with Henry Braun resulted in the latter's death. Referee Sam Austin and Manager Jack Skelly also escaped. Charlie Kelly, the clever,well-behaved 118-pounder, is out with challenges to Sammy Kelly and Dave Sullivan. Charlie says he has $500 to place on the outcome, Tom Lees, the Australian ex-heavy weight champion, is at Seattle, Wash., en route to the Klondike gold fields. Peter Jackson won the colonial cham pionship title from Lees. Joe Butler and Bob Armstrong are in strict training for their six-round bout at ttie Arena next Fridav, and a fast bout should result. The preliminaries will be: Tommy Niland will meet Young Mar shall,Cole Watson meets Billy McAnany, Wliitey Lester meets Harry Smith, while the semi-windup will bring together Martin Judge, of Roxborotigh, and Jack Hanly, of Southwark. Sam Fitzpatrick deserves a generous i measure of credit for his skill in hand ling Jack Daly. Daly follows Fiiz.'s ad vice implicitv' and the latter's good judgment was plain on Monday night. Fitzpatrick handled Lavigne in the same careful and thorough way. Asa boxer's second the Australian may have equals, hut no superiors.—New York Sun. Joe Gans, the light-weight colored boxer, of Baltimore, is after Frank Erne, or any other boxer of that class, who lias Championship aspirations. The Balti morean believes that lie is the Champion of the light-weight class at the legitmate weight of 133 pounds and can see no rea son why Erne should meet other men at 135 pounds and go a long distance out of his way to prevent meeting him.

Major Taylor, the colored rider, sur prised his'friends by his wonderful sprint 111 the one-mile national chain- j ptonship race at Manhattan beach on [ last Saturday. Taylor used an 88-incli |, gear, and considering the fact that lie lias been training for middle-distance races, his success in sprinting will likely result in his abandoning the idea of fol lowing middle-distance racing. Edouard Taylore, tlie middle-distance champion of France, who is tu meet Frank Starbuck in the opening race meet of the season at Willow Grove on Saturday next, arrived in Philadelphia last night. He was accompanied by his army of crack pacemakers, in charge of Manager Jim Kennedy, of tlie American Cycle Racing Association. Jimmy Michael, the world's champion, also reached Philadelphia from his train ing quarters at Waltham, Mass., with his manager, Dave Shafer, ami pacemaking team. Previous to the twenty-mile race between Starbuck aud Taylore, Michael will attempt to break tlie five-mile world's record. to of of the Both Starbuck and Taylore nre in the best condition for Saturday's race, and it promises to bo a very lively event.

The University of Pennsylvania will liave no entry in tbe Harlem regatta on Memorial day, as has been partly ex pected. A grand regatta, in which nothing but championship races will be rowed, is be ing prepared by the oarsmen of Wor cester. It is expected that the university and freshmen cre ws of Cornell, Columbia and the Universities of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin will arrive at Saratoga on June 15 to begin training for the annual regatta on June 30, and July 1. The freshman race will be rowed on June 30 or July 1. College men are much interested in this controversy now going on regarding tbe rowing of the triangular boat race between Yale, Harvard and Cornell, originally suggested to take place at New London about June 23 or 24. College men say they think the preliminaries of tbe race will be settled satisfactorily to all concerned. The indications are that Ten Eyck and Lewis will row double in some of the big regattas during the coming season. Lewis made a line impression at the Na tional last year in the intermediate singles, and,coupled with the champion, would give some of the other combina tions a warm argument. While Ten Eyck was in Philadelphia he rowed double much of the time with JuvenaL He seems to like tbe double-action idea, and that strengthens the belief that he will make a try for the doubles in the National. AMONG THE HORSEMEN. The great racing event of the year, the Derby, was run at Epsom Downs yester day and won by J. W. Larnach's chest nut colt Jeddah. The duke of West minster's Matt was second.and the Prince of Wales' Dunlop third. A London dispatch states that the re cent rumors that the great horse, Galtee More, had been purchased from his owner, John Gubhins, for the Russian government, have now been confirmed. The price paid was £25,000 or about $125,000. Galtee More lias in the past two seasons started in 13 races, winning 11 of them, the combined value of hig victories being £27,010. Among his achievements nis "triple success" in the Two Thousand Guineas, Derby and St. Leger last year was probably the most remarkable. T] , Ilambiirsr received his final preparation for the Helmont .Stakes yesterday at the Brighton Beach course. Hamburg covered a mile and a quarter in a fraction under 2.14.
