Meets Dodgers Saturday
and Gunners Sunday.
By substituting foi the Tompkins'
Terriers Saturday afternoon in the
scheduled pastime with the Duty
Dodgers. Ma. R. R. Xeyland's Eighth
engineer league leaders, will repay
a previous game played by the Ter
riers in their atead and will also help
to balance the Army and City league
schedule by meeting the 82nd artillery
n fcunday in the second game of the
ouhle bill.
Maj. .Neylana returned
the city Tuesday from Cloudcrof t,
where his organization has been sta
tioned and readily agreed to play two
frames this weekend, when asked
about the matter at . the weekly
executive meeting: Tuesday night He
win prooaoiy worx wees in the Sat
urday game and pitch himself on Sun-
aay.
Some Good Rulings Made.
Managers in attendance at the
eecutie meeting discussed at length
the matter of balancing the schedule,
which is at present a bit onesided,
in vjew of the absence of several
teams during the past two months.
According to present plans, however,
it will be even again within the next
three weeks and all six clubs will be
engaged in the pennant race with a
record of having played each the
(arae number. In the case of the
Eighth engineers the margin of games
played by this team and other dubs
or the league, will be materially de
creased Saturday and Sunday after
noons, when the doubleheader Is
counted.
Abont Foal Balls,
Some legislation that will be very
valuable to the Infielder was passed
by the managers in the ground rule of
allowing a fielder to catch a foul fly
outride of the diamond territory If
he can reach it without stepping over
tne xence. or late there has been
. considerable discussing about the ?ub-
ject of the ball being in play when
a fly Is lifted Into the bleachers and
grandstand and it seems as If the
plaver has an excellent chance of
nabbing it. He will not be permitted
to jump the fence or run back of the
screen backstop to get the fly. but If
he can reach It by standing outside
of the screen fence he is entitled to
the out if one Is made.
Double Bill Labor Day.
Labor day will be celebrated locally
by a doubleheader in the afternoon
at Rio Grande park. The league presi
dent was authorized to tender the
services of the league to the Daugh
ters of the Confederacy on that date
and the game will be made a bene
fit affair for the monument fond of
the Wade Hampton chapter. Suitable;
arrangements will be made so that;
the teams of the league will receive:
a portion of the gate receipts for the
r layers and other Incidental expenses.

BLACK SUPREMACY IX BOXING
The dark cloud of black supremacy
having passed over the American
prize ring, it is Interesting to note
that an American negro gave Eng
land an awfnl fright in the very hey
day of her boxing patronage. It was
In 1810. and I take the facts from an
old Ergllsh print.
The subject of the sketch was Tom
Molyneux. a slave who took his name
from his owner, a wealthy planter In
Virginia. It was common practice to
pit "niggers" against each other for
the amusement of their masters, and
Tom showed marked skllL Algernon
Molyneaz. the planter's son. had
backed the negro In several fights,
and on one occasion while with a
gay set In Richmond and under the
Influence of liquor (a fluid used In
the United States prior to July 1,
191,) accepted a challenge involving
3100.000. On account of the great
stake young Molyneux offered his
slave his freedom as a prise for win
ning. Tom won tbe fight and with
it his freedom. After about five years
in New York, during which he fought
several battles, the ebony one was the

however, almost an exclusive English
sport, and no white American would
probably have fought a negro, Moly

challenge Tom Cribb for the cham
pionship of the world. For a man of
this despised race, having sprung
from slavery, to show such pluck,
though it offends racial pride, ar
rests attention and forces respect. Of
course the idea of fighting the Eng

"go get a reputation." He battered
down two worthy Englishmen, and
then came his opportunity with Tom

Imagine, if you will, this illiterate
black brute who besides his color and
lowly origKi. had the additional han
dicap of an ugly fae, entering the
ring to fight a white man, a very
popular white man. the recognized
premier fighter of the white race, and
doing this in a foreign land where
not a friendly eye or tongue greeted
him Indeed it was a challenge to
the whole assemblage for everywhere
he turned he saw aexiance envisaged.
To win would mean to be mobbed and
yet he dared to try. Could human
courage be more sublime?
Molyneux enters the ring under a
pale of silence. Cribb enters with
thunderous applause. Time Is called.
The gross Virginia nigger stands be
fore the English gentleman and the
world's championship Is at stake. The
betting odds are 4 to 1 on the gentle
man. A tense moment ensues as the

cheering beggars description. As If
the nearo's beelnnlnzs were not lowly
enough he must rise from the soil to
pursue bis ambition. He takes two
blows for every one he gives, but he
holds his feet. His ugly visage as
sumes hideous proportions, but his
fighting spirit never wanes and as
the rounds rotate, he knocks his op

quote from the English narrative:
"The moment Cribb was lifted to
his feet, burst forth a cry that was
almost pathetic in Its earnestness.

Joe Ward rushed across the rinsr to

having placed two bullets tn the
black's fists. Molyneux was request

nothing was there.
"The ruse, however, succeeded, and
gave Cribb the opportunity to come
around. As they faced each other
again the champion dodged his man,
and by good luck succeeded in knock
ing him down. Yet nobody was quite
prepared for what was about to hap

seized with violent shivering, and all
at once he seemed to collapse. Crlbb.
seeing his condition, dashed In at his

round, however, the black caught his
man round the waist and. threw him
heavily, but In doing so pitched over
him. and. bringing his head in contact
with one of his stakes, he lay there
upon his back in a eeml-stunned
state.
