AMONGST THE ATHLETES
Spicy Items Take* From tbe Latest
Happenings in the Roped Arena
and on the Field of Ath
letics-Wiimington's In
teresting Budget.
DIAMOND DUST.
The latest rumor anent Mercer is that
he is to be sold to Cincinnati for third
baseman Irwin and cash. Lave Cross is
to be purchased to take Irwin's place at
third base.
"Dusty" Miller, of the Cincinnati
team, made a record, Oct. 9, which will
undoubtedly be the record of the season.
In tbe two games against Cleveland,
Miller went to bat nine times and made
eight hits.
President Strobel, of the Interstate
League, sayB that if Cleveland and
Columbus are deserted by the National
and Western Leagues he stands ready to
locate clubs in both cities for his circuit.
The Boston players sav if they do rot
receive substantial recognition from the
club owners for the winning of this
year's pennant they will never again
break their hacks to give their employers
a champion team.
The Pittsburg and the Cincinnati teams
have the largest reserve lists, Pittsburg
witli 31 and the Reds witli 30, although
Cincinnati's includes most of the Indian
apolis players.
The latest yarn from Baltimore ia to
the effect that Jennings, Demont and
Keeler contemplate the Btudv of medi
cine, having been fired by the exampu
of Dr. Pond.
Pittsburg lias scooped in I-.ur more
players in outfielder Shannon, of Rich
mond; pitcher Wilhelm ami sh irt stop
Madison, of Lancaster, and pitcher
Pai ne, formerly of Brooklyn.
Talk about Dave Foutzl Great Scissors,
tie was never in Carr's class. The Wash
ington first baseman is narrower acros
the broa s than anything that ever
broke into the game.
On four occasions this year the Cin
cinnatie have beaten St. Louis at double
headed matinees. The Browns, by tin
way, have won but three gameB from
Cincinnati in tiiree years.
Tom Lynch is again murmuring his
farewell address, and is credited with
the declaration that this is his last sea
son on the diamond. "Umpire Tom" has
said the same thing before.
The Washington Post satirically re
marks: 'Hus Schmelz, Watkins and
other members of the signal corps in

pointers in pantomirnks Atn'^upM^';

CYCLING.
A representative of the American
Cycle Racing Association sailed for
Europe Wednesday in quest of Euro
pean racing talent to take part in indoor
meets at Madison Square Garden during
the winter. Cordang, tbe famous Dutch
man, is one of the men he hopes to se
cure.
Owen Kimble, one of the professional
cyclists who bolted from the L. A. W.
recently, has followed Majah Taylor's
example and asked . for reinstatement.
Kimble wrote to Bess Mott, asking how
he can return to the L. A. W. fold. Like
Taylor, he must pay a fine of $100.
Eddie Bald has arrived in New York
and will confine his bicycle riding to a
stationary appliance arranged on tbe
stage in the future. Bald has no posi
tive ideas about next season, and is un
decided whether to retire on his laurels
or to try another season.
The report comes from Chicago that
Jimmy Michael has bought a race horse,
and al I questions as to his sii cerity when
lie announced several months ago that
he was going into the business are set at
rest. He has not given up the idea of be
coming a jockey, and he expects to take
hia first mount in a race within the next
two weeks.
Eddie C. Bald, president of the Ameri
can Racing Cyclists' Union, states, in an
intervie .v, that Alb-it Mott, chairman ui
tiie L. A. W. Racing Board, supplied
figure- that are incorrect in attempting
to show in liis interview sent out from
Baltim .re how insignificant is the re
lie-lion again si L. A. W. control of cycle
racing.
Charles Culver, who lias looked aftei
llie interests of "Eddie" McDuffee, the
middle distance cyclist, for the past year,
left, New York Wednesday night for

the New England rider will go against
Frank Starbuck for fifteen miles behind

Tile wheel can only fail sidewise, and,
apart from increased difficulty in man
aging it, is kept top side up on the same
principle as a bicycle, tbe speed balanc
ing it.
Eddie McDuffee. the great middle-dis
tance racer, strongly denies the story
sent out by the secretary of the Ameri
can Racing Cyclists' Union that he is to
join that organization. "1 have no such
intention," said McDuffee,, "I am well
satisfied as I am. The L- A. W, has
always treated me faiarly, and has man
aged racing affairs far better than any
oth«r organization could do until it has
h«d the experience of the L. A. W. Con-'

Codk the tackles, Brokaw the ends, Poe

The Tricoliegiate League, composed of
Dartmouth, Williams and Amherst, is
getting ready for the coming champion
stiip series. The first game will be
played by Amherst and Duruuorith on
November 5.
Now that professionalism in foot ball
is attracting attention toot bail coaches
shod Id not be overlooked, for they figure
quite as promirieutly as the players.
Is'Harvard wronger than Y'ale on the
foot ball field this season? At this lime
the question cannot be definitely an
Hwejed. Harvarit's admirers believe the
Crimson eleven easily surpasses Eli's,
taking Wednesday's game against the
Newton Athletic Club as a criterion.
Tfiiree days ago, says Coach Woodruff,
(Jutland could not buck the line success
fully. He would advance with rapidity,
and, like Osgood of old, hesitated just at
the critical moment. Yesterday was in
illustration that the ability as a line
bucker has come lo him suddenly.
The athletic relations between Penn
sylvania and Princeton are still strained,
and a football gamu between the two
universities isos far off as it lias ever
been since ail agreements were declared
off ip 1894.
Coach Warner was not satisfied witli
he work of the Cornell ham yesterday,
play being slow and listless. Reed,,
the left gtritru, is sun weak and will
hardly be able to go into the Princeton

Young, Jr., will play in Reed's place,
and will be used to substitute at full
back. ! >11

going into the woods, will makeasolemn
determination that they will not dis
charge a rifle at any kind of game until
hey can see enough of the object to tell

even sets to love. Latham won the
first set by 6 2, the second by 6-5 and
the third by 6 2 .
THE WAVVAaKf RACES.
Professional Bookies Make Things
Lively at the Gentlemen's Track.
The Contests Were Very Poor.
The laws of this State prohibit rape
track gambling, yet in spite of this fact,
two well-known Philadelphia bookmakr
openly pried their, profession at the
Wawaset Driving Association traejt yes
ere
terday.
No attempt to disguise the fact was
made. The "hookies" had- their, stand
just below tbe grand stand and made
their bookB openly.
The usual result of gambling In con
nection with the Bport was very appa
n?ut, , . ,, . , '. .
Several of the raceB had that painfully
fixed look, which is tbe inevitable ac
companiment of plenty of suckers and a
big book. Nobody of any judgment ab-:
jects to betting. As long as a man enjoys,
competition in any sport, he will form
bis opinions of which is the winner. His
opinion is always strong, and it is per-:
fectly natural tiiat he should back his
judgment against that of some other fel
low with an equally strong opiuion, by
putting up cold cash.
The objection lies in putting in pro
fessional race traok gamblers, men whose
business it is to win and whose methods
are al ways open to question.
They bring with them an unenviable
following of disreputable people, who
prey upon tboee whose familiarity with
crooked racing is less than their awn.
The work' of Starter Joseph Davidson
was unusually poor. He seemed to have
something the matter with his head pr
his eye sight. As,, a result, all sorts of
funny breaks occurred. The attendance
was (airly good in point of size.
Among those noticed were William

Ill speaking of the races several people
said: 'You talk about the running races
011 the outlaw tracks being cruokvd
Well, they ain't in it when compared
with one of the races yesterday, Why.
ever a horse was pulled, that animai
was Starlight Fatclieu, owned by
Ueorge li. Haber and driven by Billy
biggs. lu the last heat Biggs made him
break all oyer the track to prevent him
neai mg Excel.
Mr. Huber bad his money down on
Excel.
Before the second heat of this raoc,
H'Uier wanted to bet $11X) on the field
ugamst Tiger Tom, the winner of the
first heat, but the bookmakers would
nut tak : it. Tiger loin was beaten and
by Excel.
Belure the third heat of the same race,
Mr. Huber bet $10 on Excel to Win $ 6 .
Just where the"huolive comes in is
hard to see. Mr. Huber onlv stood to
win $6 on Excel, while if his own horse,
Starlight Patchen, had won the heats he
stood to win a large purse. The whole
affair is one of those mysteries which
will occur on a track where professional
gamblers are permitted.
If any body else but Joseph Davidsori
lmd been starter the race would have'
been declared off, but Mr. Huber ta a
member of the association, consequently
the crooked work was winked at.
