■READVILLE, Mass., Sept. 21.—
prut stallion Cresceus obtained a firmer i
grasp on his crown as king of trotters' '
by defeating his only rival, The Abbot, •
on the ReadvlHe track today -in three
out of four heats. The two fastest trot
ters in tin- world raced for a $20,C00-pur c |
offered by Thomas W. Lawson, and the j
money which the 12.000 people paid to see
the event all went to a well known local
charity. The weather was perfect, but
the track was very heavy from recent j
rains, although it looked fast, so that no !
records were broken or even" approached; j
in fact, the fastest ...r.e. that in the last ■
In at. was only 2:0.;'- 4 .
The race was disappointing to a Targe i
majority of the crowd and seemed to ■
lead to the conclusion .that The Abbott .
l*as not r-eeovertd frim his sickness of j
last spring. The Abbott broke repeat-, j
edly and lost valuable distance. ;In the \
first heat he went off his - feet before i
reaching the first turn, and was ten j
lengths belli at the finish. He man
aged to keep up in the second, and; to j
the delight of the crowd passed Cresceus i
at the half and won by a length. !n |
the third, however, another break came
right at the start, and the Scannell horse '
barely saved his distance at the finsh.
Finally tee weights were resorted to, and
while they apparently steadied The Ab
bot, at the same time they sapped his
vitality, so that "ion the moment came
for the supreme effcrt in the dash for the
•wire in the last heat, exhausted nature
rebelled and Cresceus won the heat and
race by several lengths.
Mr. Ketcham, the owner and driver of
Creseeus, while naturally delighted with j
the result, admitted that even his horse
was not in proper shape, and that he lost
the second heat because he did not stir
Cres 'eus up in the first half mile to the
realization that there was a . race on.
When it was all over and his hoi ;
was being led back to the stable Mr. j
Bcannell, the owner of The Abbott, said
that the best horse won but that the
track was wretched. He took the de- ,
feat, however, with good nature. The.
third Interested party in today's tjjent,
Mr. Thomas W. Lawson, smiled cynically
and said it looked like a race between
"busted horses." He also pointed out j
that the time was slower than in yes- i
terday's race between Lord Derby and
It was early in the afternoon when trie J
two grrat trotters, Cresceus (2:02%), and
The Abbott (2:03%), came out for their
first heat. Ketcham had won the tos.3 ar.d
the pole, and after scoring three, times j
, the word was finally given and away they j
•went, with Cre-s-ceus in the leal. In the i
scoring The Abbot tia;l acted badly. :o
that few were surprised when, at th«j
turn, he suddenly went into the air in a
•bad break. By hard work Goers got him
back on his feet, but by this time Crts- !
ceus was far in the lead, over a dozen
lengths to the good. It looked like a
hopeless race for The Abbot in that. hr at;
In f?»::t." at one time it seemed as if Cre«-'
cens might be able to shut out the Scai?- \
nell horse and win the big; purse then I
and there, but ers managed to pull up I
a little, and at the half was only ten
lengths behind. This distance w:v? still
further reduce* by the time the v three
quarter pole was passed, and at the turn
Into the stretch The Abbot was eaf?.
Geers made no attempt to push his horse
further, so Creeceus won the first heat:
toy ten lengths.
The second heat proved very exciting,
for th time The Abbot kept his feet,
but as usual, Cresceus went out at the-.
si.'.rt and again led at the turn. At the
Quarter pole he was a length to the good
and increased his distance to two lengths
■»t the tnreceighths. Then Getrs began
to drive and rapidly cut down the dis
tance -to a length, half a length., a
quarter of a length, until just after the
two rwept by the half mile pole The
Abbot dashed ahead and for the first
time, took the lead and the pole. The
crowd, which all along seemed to favor
The Abbot, was frantic. ■ Geers made the
lead two lengths and then three and so
the flyers entered the stretch. Ketcham
gave the big chestnut the severest pun
ishment he had "ever undergone at this
• point, and, smarting under the sting!
blows of the whip," Cresceus dashed after
The Abbot. Geers touched his horse
li~htly with the whip only twice and it
t.us just enough -to make The Abbot Win
..toy. half a length.
But in the third heat it was different,
for again The Abbot acted badly and the
two horses scored five times before they
got the word. Ketcham kept sending
Cresceus out ahead with the apparent
Intention of getting The Abbot off his
f< it. He succeeded so well that when
tin y finally got the word The Abbot
loroke right under the wire. In fact, the
i>rrak came with the starter's word, but
too late for the horses to be recalled.
.Again Cresceus sped out ahead and was
around the turn before The Abbot had
even started in the race. This time It
looked as if Ketcham had won his trick
r.nri ha<l The Abbot fairly out. He drove
Cresceus like the wind and was over
fifty yards ahead afc the half. But Geers
d!d not despair and he once more sent
"the Abbot along and managed to get
well within the distance Hag when.
Cresceus passed under the wire, a hfat
■winner by nearly forty yards.
Before the fourth heat was called two
ounce toe weights were put on The Ab
bot's fore hoofs in order to steady hrn.
Both drivers came to the conclusion that
the track was too heavy near the pole
Jor fast work, so both horses were start
r<i w«ll up on the outside of the track.
They only scored twice, in neither of
■which did The Abbot break, which gave
confidence to his followers. At the word
Ctesceus Immediately went out in front
and was three lengths to the good at
the quarter pole. For a few hundred
yards The Abbot trailed along behind,
bul before the half was reached he be
gan to draw up and was only two lengths
bihiul at that point. Foot by foot the
ScanneH horse pulled down Cresceus' lead
until at the Jive-eighths pole the two
•were racing along on even terms to the
wild del'gilt of the crowd. At the three
quarters The Abbot was in the lead, but
Could not quite fetch the pole, which
rrrpcouH kept to the finish. The A>rush
around the turn killed The Abbot and
when at the beginning of the stretch
Crosceus came up even Geers found his;
horse exhausted. A perceptible groan
Went vi) from the crowd as the big chest
nut da.shed away from the strug^lng
griding and it was a relief to see Ueers
flnaily pull up and allow Cresceus to win
tiio heat and one of the largest purses

The university football \ team made a
most discouraging -showing yesterday
afternoon I; against the ■ elevens - represent- ■
ing the central high schools of M nne
apolis . and . St. Paul. In the : first ■ half,
pla\ing against the Minneapolis nigii;
the-'varsity; boys were unable to cross
the goal line once; In the second half,
against St. Paul, they scored ' three, tou;'h,r
downs. Knowiton failed on two of the
goals/./- ';:- .- ; '"*-.■. v'ij" '0
Much can.be said in praise of.the worK
di.no .by the Minneapolis high: school
players.. Although outweighed? by about
twenty- pounds to the man and , with a
strong wind' against them, they held the.;,
'varsity down in splendid : style. Me-"
Carthy, at' center, played all around big"
Strathern, and Marshall, at right tackle, '
made a ve.ry creditable showing against j
Fee. Burlington, at end, did magriittceht' |
work, and. Blackwell, at left guard, play- j
ing his first .game, fairly held Ins own j
against .Mueller, while Morse, on the I
olher. side of the center, clearly out- !
played Van Camp. Bidlake, Merrill and I
the others did very commendable work:- i;t
■ = ST. -PAULr'S GOOD SHOWING. - ■
The St. Paul boys" also showed up well,
although not as well as Minneapolis cen
tral. They were the l.ghtest of the three
teams and; faced a fiercer offense than
the other high school eleven, but, in spite
of the odds against them, put up a most
plucky fight. . .. ./;' -■■;■'
On the university team hardly a ,man
played, the game as it should be played.'
On th«, defensive the 'varsity men found
little difficulty in .holding either. of the
high school teams, but on the offensive
their play was atrocious. In fact, if the
work of the 'varsity is to be judged on
yesterday's showing (which every root
er must pray is not correct) many of the
players have mistaken their, vocations.;
rThe offensive work, especially in the
first half, showed little . ginger and no
judgment or teamwork. The runners hit
. the line with a gentleness which would
d'sprove any contention as to the brutal
ity of" the game. ; '■'■ . ' :■■••■'<
'.. "■;.';' NO AGGRESSIVE . WORK.
The blockers seemed to forget that
their duty was to put the opposing play
ers out of the . play. -Frequently the
backs would pass a tackier without
touching him, giving him every oppor
tunity to reach the runner. The aggres
sive; quality which characterized Minne
sota's offense, last fall was entirely lack
ing. Individually and / collectively the
'varsity men disported themselves in a
manner which made the rooters seriouslyl
debate whether they were not inten
tionally "playing horse." ' '-■" 1 ' • .
The 'varsity won the toss for the first
half and Bidlake kicked off for Central
higlx The 'varsity rushed ten yards and
lost the ball for holding. Central retain
ed the pigskin hardly a moment, but
whatever chance the 'varsity had to sore
was spoiled. by holding in the line, using
hands or fumbles. Once, shortly after
j the game began, this inability to hold the
ball came near costing dear. McCarthy,
seizing the oval, as it was dropped by onV
I of. the 'varsity backs, broke free from the
: bunch with a clear field before him. Fee
■ saved a touchdown, overtaking the hi^h
i school. captain, and bringing him to earth'
at the 'varsity, forty'yard line. .-:.'-
The half proved uninteresting, the hi~h
school boys playing entirely on ,the de
fensive, but the poor play of the varsity
prevented the taking advantage of its
opponent's inability to gain ground. Once
they rushed the ball to:th"e ten-yard line,
but a confusion of signals resulted. m a
forward pass which gave the ball to the
higth school. .
In the second half the varsity again
won the toss- and the wind. The men
gave evidence of having received a severe
roasting, from the coaches, for their pliy,
while hardly less ragged than in the first
half, showed a little more - speed and
spirit.- - ... •. ■-..-.■ .--.. . , ... r ,
They took the ball at the kickoff on the
twenty-five-yard line and rushed tie
length of the field for a touchdown with
out losing it. '■'.'. ■ - .^AriMti •
E Before the half ended they succeeded
in pushing the leather across twice; more
and lost other chances to score by fum
bles. Taken as a. whole, the play, show d
little improvement over the first. '•«&.
The runners displayed more agg<os:v -
ness in going into the line, but the inter
ference" was marked by the same listless
ness as before. ■■*■■-•'■ < .•_•..■•,...'
Looking forward' to the game with' N
ebraska, now only three weeks' distant, it
must be. admitted that there is . great
cause for .anxiety on the part of the
! Minnesota rooters. The play of the var-'
| Kity yesterday cannot be said to be mv h
better than it was last year, at this time
and there is not the excuse of raw mate
rial that- was made at that'time/ The
men this year are nearly all experienced
players. -. Those who have not played ■on
the varsity before have had exDeiience in
i preparatory ..schools! or on the second
team. On the other hand, it cannot be
predicted that this team will. develop with
the same phenomenal . rapidity as the
liKO eleven.': Altogether, the outlook is
hardly encouraging, i Yesterday's - line-up

IS WON BY TRAVIS
FINAL GAME OF THE GOLF TOIR.
XAMEXT AT ATLANTIC
CITY, X. J. .."-.:.
WAS TOO FAST FOR EGAN
By Winning- the Hatch the Younu. ,
Now Yorker Remains ctiiimjtion
Amatear Golfer of the
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Sept. 21.—
"Walter J. Travis, of New York, cham
pion amateur golfer of the united
States, again won the national cham
pionship by defeating Walter E. Egan, of
Chicago today on the links of the At
lantic City Golf club, at Northfield, near
■Egan played good golf except toward
the- end of the first nine holes this fore
r.oon, when He became a little unsteady.
Travis' play was also faulty. There were
several periods during the match when
he played far 'below, his usual form, but
being & veteran of many a golf battle,
he recovered^ more quickly than did his
younger opponent. The champion's
strongest point Was his long game and
it was through Jhis good strong drives
that he was- enabled to win.
He out-distanced Egan on every drive
except •in two' or three instances. Travis'
direction was also above that of Egan,
the latter several times being handi
capped in a drive'too far to the right or
to the left. " *
There was not rhuch to choose between
the short game o^ the two men. Taken
as a whole the work of both men on the
'green was a little; below their top game.
The morning round of 18 holes was a
much better exhibition of golf than the
afternoon performance. At the end of
the first nine holes Egan was one up,
but Travis, by clever play, managed to
make the match all square at the end
of the morning game. «"
In the afternoon it soon became evi
dent that Travis would win. He was two
up at the turn and made four up on the
next two holes. Here the Western
>oungster held him for two holes, but
on the fourteenth the champion, by ex
cellent golf, won out amid the plaudits
of the gallery.
Ideal weather prevailed for the sport
and the course was ia excellent condi
tion. The attendance was light,.proba.bly
due to the fact that the match had been
postponed from last Saturday, owing to
the death of President McKinley.
A fog hung over the links during the
early morning and the heavy dew made
the links just w trifle wet. The sun came
cut strongly toward 10 o'clock and the
course was soon dry. The air was cold
and everybody wore a top coat. Travis
and Egan came out early and practiced
some before starting the match.
Play was started at 9:40. The cham
pion had the honor and his tee drive was
twenty yards better than that of Egan.
Both overran the green in their ' ap
proach, but on two gjed putts they
halved the hole in four. Travis again
out-drove the' Western man on the tes
off for the second hole. Egan's approach
fell short while Travis again over-ran the
green. They tried hard to hole out in
four, but it took five to do it and the
hole was halved..
Egan's opening drive to the next hole
lacked direction ajnd he got into the- long
grass. In trying jto straighten himself
out he made .matters worse by getting
behind several 1 trees. Travis reached the
green in several pretty strokes and holed
out in. four by, brilliant twenty-foot put.
It took Egan six to hole out. This made
Travis one up, ;• .
Travis landtd his tee drive to the
fourth hole on the edge of the green.
Egan's fell fifty feet shorter. He ap
proached w<m, J hbwever, and made the
hole in- four. Triavis had a chance to
hole out in- three; i but he rimmed the cup
and It took hitn-five to get into the hole,
thus making the'-matdh all even.
There was not;"much difference in the
first two drives of the men to the fifth
hole, except that the champion had the
better direction. The. latter put his third
short right on one corner of the green
while Egan's fell short. Another short
stroke out landed them near the edge
of the cup. Both missed on their next
and the hole was divided in six strokes.
Both men got into trouble on their
way to the sixth hole. Travis drive
struck a tree and he landed in a bunker.
Egan too. got into the bunker; but not
through striking the tree. Tlxe champion
made . a beatiful aprpoach and. holed
out on a short putt in four, Egan : taking
five to negotiate • the . hole. This . again
put Travis in the lead. . . ' ' '
■'■ A wide and deep sand pit lies directly
in front of the seventh green and they
played their drives with great caution.'
They cleared the hazard safely and land
ed four feet from the ■•holei^jnV tour

then the champion missed ! another easy
chance to score by rimming the cup and
it was his oponent's hole in six,; which
again made the match all square. .'-. 'V ;

opening drive to the eighth hole, while
Egan was a little short. The latter, how
ever, approached well and managed to
halve the hole in three. -;..-■ ..-. :
. Both men - made good ' tee drives on
their way. to the ninth. On the second
shot, however, Travis got into another
bunker. Egan had better fortune and
cleared it. The latter held his advantage
by a neat approach and made the hole
in i five to Travis' six. This made the
Western man one up for the outward
journey. ■':-'.••' . . - .

hole in three. Their progress to the next
I hole was a repetition of the tenth, both
men folding out in three in par golf. '

to the twelfth hole and hit into a bunker

- Egan won the fifteenth hole, chiefly
because of a poor putt by the champion.

lead, but matters were all even . at the

QuiiUt-ra Lead at End of Second
liny'H Play at Philadelphia.
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 21.—The sec
ond day's play in the international crick
et match between the eighteen Philadel
phia colts and Bosanquet's team of Eng
lish cricketers ended here today with
honors strongly in favor of the Quakers.
Against an over-night score of 173, the
Englishmen could only respond with 131.
Starting their second venture, the young
sters ran up the big score of 130 for the
loss of seven wickets, thus securing a
lead of 172 runs and eleven wickets in
hand, against the visitors' single innings.
The collapse of the Englishmen for
so small a total can only be attributed
to the fact that they had nineteen fielders
against them instead of the customary
eleven. Many of the batsmen made
strokes that under ordinary conditions
would have meant two or three runs,
while today they were fielded and rap
