The High School baseball club will |>l a y two games ill this citv on Decora Itjtion Day or Front and Union streets gn ? luuls ' In the morning they play the Bneiids School, of this city, and iti the afternoon the Tome Institute, of ]. ort I Deposit, will be tlieir opponents. J Tom Flanagan pitched another win i ning game for the Fall River Club on 1 Monday against the New Bedford, hold ing them down to eight hits. The Fall Biyer Globe said that Flanagan had lots °' * ll| i jU ids opponents' expense and t ] iat l, ls cross-fire made complete . monkeys of them. After breaking*^ bis sides laughing at them he let up and took it easy. Torn also made one hit and had four assists. "Charley" Irwin, the Reds' third base mail, is out of the game for a few days with a lame hack. i .... .. „ When the Bostons return home from the West (hey jump from Louisville to Beaut,own. It is the longest ride but one—between St. Louis and Boston—in the circuit. Cojumbiis expects to win the W'estern u ' a S lU! pennant with the addition of Fneml ami Briggs, of the Chicago club. Omaha, Chauncey. Fisher's club, it is G" 1 , 18 T about P'? r I» "P >» the Western League. Des Moines may take the P lace ' BierbautT thinks he could fill the bill third for the Washingtons, but Wash ington is very well satisfied with Wag m ' r - Kttr , Wa gner is still doing the weeding out process among the Senators. The latest move is "Tommy" Leary, general utility man. Manager Selee of the Bostons, that the Baltimores are not as strong as they were in '97. He says that tliev will he lucky to get into second place' this season. The deal is off bv which "Chippy" McGarr, the old Cleveland third base man, was to manage and play for the New Haven Club. savs Pitcher Klobedanz, of the Bostons, says that Pitcher Doheny, of New York, will be a star south paw this season—if he does not again incur Mr. Freedman's wrath. Louisville will not waive claim to Pitcher Dainmann, who has been sent to Indianapolis, audit is thought that the little south paw will be seen in a Louis ville uniform for the remainder of the season. "AVeyler" Cushman and "Blanco" Heydler is the way they refer in St. Louis to two roses in "N'ick" Young's bouquet of umpires. There's one conso lation for thp umpires now. Nothing worse than this can happen. If Manager "Tom" Burns succeeds in rejuvenating "Matt" Kilroy as a pitcher will be one of the eight wonders of the world. But one game is not a safe I standard. It may have been one of the iieculiar tilings that will happen in base ball. Every member of the Louisville team lias learned the sign language, and they have many a warm argument with "Dummy" Hoy, the silent one. Delehanty is very much interested in the matter of war, and he is able to tell a moment's notice just where Samp son s fleet is and what the Spaniards are liable to do. at to in Preeident Pullman says the Louisville P'iDl'c »ill find no fault with the hitting ofSnvder. lie seems to think he has a rich hnd in the new backstop. V\ hat the western teams need more than anything else is practice, and when they get settled down to actual business they will give the effete east a run for the money. Charles hspor made his entree as a league twirier last week. It took the old man eight weeks to get his wing in shape, but the time was not wasted, judging by his performance. A veteran umpire says that there are just two men in the National League who, as an almost moral certainty, touch their men—Jennings and Gleason. The rest "lay away from their heels," touch j their men and make the bluff good , SELF DEFENCE. A questionable quality with Jack Daly is endurance. McPartland is a stronger man, and Lavigne can in all probability also last longer.—New York Sun. Goddard and Choynski have been matched to box six rounds before the Arena Club of Philadelphia on Friday June 3. Jeffries is expected to accept Corbett's challenge. Jimmy Barry arrived in New York city early this week and proceeded at once to training quarters in order to fit himself for his battle with Casper Leon at the Lenox club next Monday night. "What do you think of a McCoy-Bon ner bout?" Tom O'Rourke was asked last night, and lie replied; "Why, Bon ner is hardly good enough. We want no one-sided bouts." Eddie Sant.rv of Chicago, who recently gave Solly Smith a hard battle in a six round bout in Chicago, has been matched by Tom O'Rourke to meet Ceorge Dixon in a twenty-round bout at the Athletic Club on June (I. Billy Smith, the Philadelphia 115 ound Champion, lias a badly sprained arm, the result of a fall from his bi cycle while "rubber-necking" on the road to Atlantic City. The twenty-round bout between Cas per Leon and Jimmy Barry, which takes place at the Lenox Athletic Club oh next Monday night, promises to be the greatest bantam- weight battle ever wit nessed in this country. Tommy West lias started in to do road work for bis contest with Tommy Ryan on June 13. r Lenox poll left Joe Gans, the light-weight colored boxer of Baltimore, is after Frank Frne or any other boxer of that class who has championship aspirations. Dick O'Brien has withdrawn from his match with Billy Smith, which was to have come off at Buffalo on June 6. Dr. A. 1'. Ordtvay, the American rep resentative of the National Sporting Club of London, has signed Billy Uotchford, ot Chicago, to fight Pedlar' Palmer, the English featherweight champion, f purse of $3,000 arid a side bet of $2,500, in October. >r a Jim Corbett put a bet down on Rtihlin to beat McCoy, and thereby added an other to the long string of losers lie lias' picked in recent years. The list includes Maher, O'Donnell and Kuhlin. Men he denounced as below the average in pugilistic skill were Fitzsimmons, Jeff ries and McCoy. Bob Armstrong, ot Chicago, and Joe Butler, of Philadelphia, will meet in a s j x -romid bout at the Arena Athletic j Cl " b > of Philadelphia, tonight. The bout ' vl11 probably be a slugging affair from , Start to finish, as the men have a grudge against each other and will try their evel best to put each to sleep. - rYr , (rj .. nii/uitna, Motor vehicles are evidently bound to come into more general use in this cotin try. It is probable that the storv of horseless traction will, in a sense'repeat the history of bicycling which made small headway during the first few years following its ' int.oduetion When the real demand came U developed suddenlj !manufacturers found it extremely difficult to meet it.

The Ine-milc unpacedrace between frank Starbuck and Joe \ ermer, which „X, be r i t 0ne W ! , ' he f ? aturea of tne Quaker City Wlieehnan's race meet at Tioga on June 11, is causing much ih terest among Philadelphia enthusiasts, for it will practically decide the local middle-distance championship. r_ * i4T . ,, % , , Last year "Jimmy" Michael estab hshed a record that is not likely to be beaten for years to come. In his races lie rode a total of 391 miles at the aver age speed of 1.58 for each mile. Should the Welshman go down in defeat this year he will have something he can point to with pride. Much interest is being manifested in tiie outcome of the match race between Freeman of America and Robertson of England, which taken place at Ambrose I'ark Saturday. C. C. After a month of deliberation Fred Longhead, the champion of Canada, and the quarter-mile and one mile national champions has decided not to return to I the track. Longhead's determination loses to the track one of its leading lights. ton the In a try-out at Charles River Track Wednesday afternoon Tom Linton rode thirty-one miles in one hour and two seconds. Eddie McDuffee rode ten miles Gougoltz and Lumberjack, the clever tandem team, claim they will sail for France on June 4. Robertson, it is said, may sign wit h another racing association, and if lie does a paced race will be ranged for him with Michael. It is said that the Charles River bi cycle track has the record for gate re ceipts, taking in ?14,(XI0 at the Micliael McDuffee match. Manhattan Beach is said to have the record for the biggest crowd at a cycle meet. Tom Butler does not like file imputa tion that lie unfairly won the victory at Manhattan Beach on Saturday last, when he defeated F'reeinan and is said to be willing to not only meet Free man, but to ride against any sprinter in America, best two in three mile heats. ar and son over will split lock a for a the in are The in "'"(f 6611 mimitee > ridin * the l aa t mile The large number of racing men now stationed in Philadelphia were greatly remtorced Wednesday night by about thirty racing men. In the party were Edouard Taylore, the middle-distance hrench rider who is to race Starbuck twenty miles at Willow Grove on Satur day afternoon; Fred Titus, AlNewhouse, a famous circuit chaser; "Major" Tay lor, the colored flyer; L. R. Lefferson, of Asbury Park; A. E. AVeineg, of Buffalo; Reynolds, of Chicago; L. 0. Johnson, of Cleveland, and others well known Tay lore's pacemaking team was also in the party. Despite the argument of a few wheel women who may be favored with a man's endurance, public opinion is decidedly against century runs for women. Aside from all consideration of propriety and decorum, the physical strain involved in a bicycle ride of 100 miles or more with in twelve hours or less, is too great for the average woman. All the talk to the contrary does not alter the fact that her system must be injured by the unusual' and unnecessary exertion. It is, more over, a loss of dignity for a woman to , mln g]e with a lot of scorching wheel men in a century run. She cannot keep up with the pace of an ordinary century run and maintain any attractiveness of personal appearance. To such of the wheelmen's clubs as have barred women from century runs credit is due. a all at fit AMONGTHE HORSEMEN.

It was stated at the track Wednesday that Tod Sloane had agreed to ride Ornament in the Brooklyn Handicap. Wise Tod Sloon always picks his mount, blithe will be surprised to learn (hat Ornament has a leg that lias been giving him considerable trouble of late, and he may not be a starter after all. The field is reducing in size rapidly, and there may be only six or seven starters after all. The smaller the field the better the chances of Sly Fox. mares. AQUATICS. A New Haven dispatch claims that 1 ale has agreed to leave the disposition of the date for the Yale-IIarvard-Coruell boat race to Harvard. After advising the chosen 'Varsity ciew to give up the stand taken in oppo sition to the powers that lie, and urging the men to report tor practice yesterday, Captain Howell himself sent in' his lesig nation, same to take effect at once, the choice of a new captain there are two candidates—Gardiner, who was captain of the second crew, but, now stroke of the \ arsitv, and Hall, who is rowing at No. 2.
