The Chicago team has secured pitcher Taylor, of Milwaukee, for $2,000. Taylor will receive $350 per month. The Youngstown Club has sold pitcher McBride and Knepper and catcher Schre congost to Cleveland. The Indianapolis Club claims that Knepper belongs to it. Third baseman Wolverton, of Colum bus, and pitcher Taylor, of Milwankee, signed Chicago contracts immediately after the close of the Western League season. The Pittsburg Club has eleven pitchers at its disposal They are Tannehill, Gard ner, Hart, Hoffer, Hastings, Rhines, Leever, Cronin, Rosebrough, Pardee and Gear. Washington has tried enough players this season to make four teams, having played thirty-six. Reitz is the only relic of the original infield, and Selbach of the outfield. Elmer Smith's wife is said to be very ill and may never recover. The Reds' left fielder is one of the most popular players, and he has the sympathy of all in the profession. Up to Wednesday Weyhing had lost eight straight. To the same date the other veteran, Cunningham, of Louis ville, has won ten straight—the League's season record. Billie Barnie takes great satisfaction out of the fact that when he turned the Brooklyn team over to Mr. Ebbetts it waB in sixth place, whereas now it is hopelessly in tenth place. 1 Arthur Irwin is one of Frank Ban croft's early pupils. The acquisition of Irwin enabled "Banny" to strike a win ning streak at Worcester and thus he saved his managerial scalp. It is asserted that second baseman Tom Daly was traded to Brooklyn for Hallman and $800, and that he will draw $400 per month from the Trolley Dodgers the League limit. Without Tebeau the Cleveland aggre gation would not amount to much. He is the brains of the team, and his indi viduality is stamped on everything that the Forest City players do. Frank Bancroft says: "The players be lieve that Jim Hart is to blame for the lengthened League schedule, and that he did it to cut off their usual autumn barnstorming expeditions." Think of the tail-end Washingtons breaking even with Baltimore on the season's series. If Baltimore fails to land the penant it will have to thank the despised Senators for the humilia tion. Captain Gillander issued a call for all U. of P. baseball candidates for the team of '99 to appear at the old field Monday afternoon. About fifteen men responded to the call. Coach Murphy took them in charge and put them through about an hour's drill m batting and catching. SELF DEFENCE. Tom Sharkey is anxious to go back to California, as he can get no fight here despite his efforts. Sam Kelly and Oscar Gardner have been signed by the Lenox club to Pox twenty-five rounds on October 28 at 115 pounds. Tommy West will appear in the ring again on Friday evening at Danbury, Conn, where he is to meet Abe Ullman of Baltimore, in a fifteen-round fight. McKeever is training at Philadelphia for his bout with Smith, which will decided at the Lenox club on Friday. McKeever has not fought in some time and is in condition to give Smith a very warm argument. From one end of the country to the other sporting men denounce McCoy and Corbett for their intention to deceive and humbug the public in the matter of the puree offered by the Hawthorne club for an alleged fight by the pair. Negotiations for a fight between Kid Lavignc and Spike Sullivan are under way again. Tom O'Rourke is willing to give a purse of fill,000, the fight to take place at the Lenox A- C., but Sullivan wants the incentive increased at least 12 , 000 . "Australian" Billy Murphy is again to the fore with a challenge. He is ready to box either Johnny Murphy or Sammy Kelly, and will forfeit the winning end of the purse should he fail to put either Kelly or his namesake out before the limit is reached. Jem Curran is in training at Coney Island for his match with Jack Daly. He says that he is in first class condition and expects to finish his training at Syra cuse. He is assisted in his work by Harry Newber, who trained Ben Jordan. "Mysterious" Billy Smith knocked out Jimmy Judge in the twentieth round of their fight Monday night. Judge fought hard throughout and was se verely punished, but Smith couldn't knock him out until he landed the finish blow, a right hook on the jaw. The first of the star attractions ar ranged for the winter boxing season by the Lenox Athletic Club will be decided next Friday night, when "Mysterious Billy" Smith will do battle with Charlie McKeever, of Philadelphia, for twenty five rounds. CYCLING. At Monday night's meeting of the out law riders in Washington a number of new members were taken in, including Fred Scbade, the intercollegiate cham pion. McDuffee lias a contest on at Atlanta against Walthour and Repine, who will ride ten miles each against him for a con test of twentv miles, the Southerners re laying for the twenty miles. Major Taylor will go for all records, paced and tinpaced. He will have a complete set of pacemakers and may make his early headquarters at Wash ington, later going to Denver and then, if necessary, to the Pacific Coast. A long distance bicycle rider says: "Outside of cycling, walking is the only exercise I indulge in when training for distance work, and I consider that a walk of ten miles is equal to thirty on the machine. A photograph of the recent seventy two-hour cycle race in Paris shows that many of the riders had their machines fitted with compound handlebars—that is bars with four grips, two giving a raised position and two a dropped posi tion. Charley Miller, the great six-dav race winner, is expected home from his European trip within a few days, and will at once proceed to Cape Girardeau, Mo., to train for the New York contest in December. Mrs. M. C. Allen of Worcester, Mass., who left New York City Hall at mid night on Sunday in an attempt to lower the record of 23 hours and 32 minutes between the two cities, instead of break ing the record broke one of the cranks of her machine, and had to abandon the ride. She will try again. Walter W. Wilson, Buffalo, was ap pointed the representative of the Ameri can Racing Cyclists' Union. He is given the authority to enforce the cycling rules adopted by the racing men at their recent meeting. Mr. Wilson has the power to issue sanctions and to fill a similar position to the racing men as that held by Chairman Mott of the L. A. W. racing board. George Fuller of the Olympic Club Wheelmen, San Francisco, aided by pacemakers, has succeeded in reducing the coast wheeling records for one-third, one-half and two-thirds of a mile, but failed to lower the five-mile record of 10.171, held by Syd B. Vincent. He made the one-third of a mile in 35 4-5 seconds, one-half in 53 3-5, two-thirds in 1.12 1-5 and the five miles in 10.35 4-5. When one hears of a bicycle accident entailing a pecuniary loss to the sufferer of $5,000 it naturally suggests a case of sweeping up the bits. But sufferers, like circumstances, alter cases. Mme. Melba's bicycle was recently responsible for that artist's absence for two nights from the operatic stage, through a fall, which, at the living wage of $2,500 a night, repre sents the Bum first mentioned. Daily advice for those who need it: Don't try your speed on Market street. It will cost you money. Wilmington is blessed with" one track. If you want to see how slow you really are go out to it, where you will find the push training. They will only be too glad to show you all kinds of speed, and there are no cops there, either. Good press work is the making of a man in the bicycle business these days and seems as necessary to the racing man as it does to the aspirant for pugilistic championship honors. "Keep before the public at any price" seems to be the motto. FOOTBALL. At a meeting of the Warren football team last night, Paul Brinton, the great tackle, was elected captain. The selec tion is a very good one. There will be a good game of football on Friday at Union street grounds, when the Independents and Brandywine Training School meet. When the Wilmington High School team meets the Chester High School eleven on Tnursday they wilf run up against a strong proposition. Monday and yesterday's warm spell played havoc with the men on the grid iron, it being impossible to do good work under the circumstances. From now on to the end of the season the football squads at the colleges will get all the bard work that,in the opinion of their trainers, they can stand. Cornell will take a few days' comp rest, during which time it is hoped the weather will have toned down some what. Yale freshmen football candidates were called out Monday, and seventy nine candidates appeared. The Peansylvania Football team will play the Mansfield Normal fkhool eleven at Franklin Field this afteqfnon. The following Lafayette men are at lete the training table: Captain Best, Bray, Pierce, Chalmers, Heilman, Weiden nrayer, Weaver, Bacon, Carter, Knight, Rosenberger and Brown, just about one half as many as in previous vears at this time in the season. AQUATICS. George H. Hosmer, the professional sculler, left Boston Monday night to take up his residence in New York, where he will probably associate him self in business with Jack Nagle, the oarsman. Owing to Erastus Rogers not being in condition, James A. Ten Eyck has asked that their proposed race with the Lynch brothers at Halifax be postponed until spring. The Yale'Varsity crew men will not be called out until December. After the fall regatta last year's freshman crew, the victors of the Thames, will be kept in training as possible timber for the 'Varsity. The only vacancy this year is caused by the graduation of Payne Whit ney. MISCELLANY. At the annual meeting of the New England division of the A. A. L T . the sentiment was strongly against the regis tration scheme. Robert Garrett, formerly of Princeton, but now of John Hopkins University, has announced that be will be a com petitor at the Olympian game at Paris in 1900. T. F. Keane, a member of the Boston Athletic Association, has won two Shef field handicaps in England within the last two months. No other American has ever done this b jfore. A. W. Robinsoirrthe sprinter, and his brother, K. Robinson, the third base man of the Harvard nine last season, have gone into business and will not re turn to college. The loss is a severe one to Harvard athletics, as both were very good athlethes. Mistakes in Football Rules. discrepancies have come ootball rules for 1898. Two apparei to light in the One is to he found between rule 13 (d) and the exception to rule 23. The other is between rule 15 (c) and rule 28 E(l). The first discrepancy would appear to be simply a clerical or typographical error, and would be remedied by chang ing "15-yard" to "10-yard" in the last line of rule 13 (2). In the second in stance of apparent inconsistency, how ever, the intention of the Rules' Com mittee is in doubt. The matter has been called to the at tention of one of the committee, who will communicate with tlje other mem bers with a view of obtaining their au thoritative declaration of the intention of the rules which appear to be contradic tory. In the second instance noted rule 15 (c) distinctly says that the side law fully charging may upon failure of the side having a free kick to kick the ball, line up five yards ahead of the line which, restrained it before chaining. Rule 28 E (1), wbifjh relates to the penalty given ii the kicker advances be yond his mark, which offense under rule 15 (b) makes charging by lawful, says that they snail to line up on the kicker's mark. Rule 13 (d) states that on a kick from a fair catch the opposite side must stand at least ten yards in front of the ball until it is kicked. An advance of five yards, therefore, as per rule 15(c), would not? put the opponents on the kicker's mark, as per rule 28 E (1). The intention of the committee on this point should be obtained as soon as pos sible and communicated to the mana gers or captains of the more important teams, at least. In the meanwhile it Would be well for the captains of con testing teams to have an understanding before going on the Held as to what the ruling is to be in the event of the con flicting rules being called into question. opponents be allowed Jack Daly to Meet Zeigler. Jack Daly, who is the coming light weight champion, writes to Lawrence Taylor, the bartender at Ed Newell's, in which he says he is matched to fight Owen Zeigler twenty-five rounds before the Coney Island A. C. on Monday night. As the fight is to be at catch weights, Zeigler will be fifteen or twenty pounds heavier than Daly. Jack is training at High Bridge, N. J. One week after this fight Jack is to fight Jim Curran, the Englishman. In a few days Daly expects to be matched to fight Kid Lavigne twenty five rounds for a side bet of $1,000. If matched the contest will come off some time next month. LOCAL DOTS. On October 14 Washington Council, O. U. A. M., will entertain a number of visitors from Chester. The Grand Lodge of Delaware, A. F. A. M., will meet in this city today. The Girls' Friendly Society at St. Andrew's Church resumed its sessions last evening. The Hilles W. C. T. U. met last even ing at the residence of Mrs. Benjamin Smedley on Sixteenth Btrtet at the High lands. The travel to Cuba over the P., W. & B. railroad is very heavy at present. The residents of Jackson street bet ween Ninth and Tentli streets, are mak ing bitter complaints about the condition of the streets there. They are lying full of leaves and all sorts of dirt, not having been cleaned for some four or five months. This matter should be at tended to. W. N. Rogers, day clerk at the Clay ton House, has resigned and gone to Philadelphia. Mrs. I. P. Chipman and son of Sea ford, are visiting friends in this city. Miss Adelaide Wells has been the guest of friends in New Castle. Mr. and Mrs. G. E. Kurkamp of New York, have been spending some time in this city. The Junior Home Missionary Society of Grace M. E.
