POINT SYSTEM TO DECIDE MATINEE CHAMPIONSHIP Snyder Suggests New Method for Holding Speedway Races This Year. BY WALTER J. SNYDER. At the regular meeting of the 1008 race committee of the Road Horse As sociation of New Jersey, which will be held tomorrow night at the Speedway Club house, many matters of impor tance pertaining to the matinee season will come up for discussion. Since tne success of the matinee rac ing season depends upon the work of this committee, Chairman William L.of tus desires a full attendance of his committee, in order to give each mat i ter ariful consideration before pass ing officially upon it. At this time plans for the season must bo formulated tor the assigning of the various prizes to bo contested for in the different events. The rules of racing will have to be reviewed and probably sKghtly revised, the assign ing of the. stalls for the season at Wee quahic Park, and the fixing of the classes for the initial matinee, May 23. Grent Year for Speedway. William H. Lnftus, chairman of the committee, and James M. Beldon, rac ing secretary of the association, have previously demonstrated their ability to handle the work assigned them. The numerous entrants to the various events am" the large attendance at the matinees in the past is ample proof that they have always discharged their duties In a satisfactory manner. This year, however, they will have their work cut out for them. More horses will be raced in the matinees and every indication is that it will he the greatest year since the association was organ ized. These conditions will naturally result In more labor for the committee and will require exceptionally close at tention to details and the assigning of tile prizes. Hence the necessity of tlfc cooperation of the full committee. Before placing In competition the fea ture prize, the gold split-second watch and chain that Theodore S. Miller, owner of the amateur matinee cham pion, Ida Gray, donated, the committee should so frame tlio rules and condi tions covering the winning of this valu able prize that it could be contested for and won by an amateur in the strict sense of the word. Since it is th^e intentio: and purpose of the associa tion to encourage and promote ama teur racing, the committee should ex ercise extreme care to prevent the pro MY TRUSS WITHOUT BELTS is not only the light est, cleanliest, most durable and most comfortable appli ance for Rupture, but is the ONE Truss of all trusses whose principle and application INSURE Proper Holding at all times, allowing rupture to gradually diminish in size and severity until CURED, when no support of any kind will be needed.

Point SjhIi-iii SntlHfnelory. That tho point system is the most satisfactory one by which to have this feat o prize decided no one will deny, but unless the conditions are framed carefully it will permit unscrupulous persons to take an unfair advantage and defeat tho very object of lhe asso ciation, the promoting of amateur rac ing. With no desire to appear in the form of a dictator, I would suggest that the commit'. :o adopt conditions similar to the following, which will permit every start r during the season to try for the prize: In every heat raced (trotting or pacing) during the season there shall be a total of ten points, dividing four to the horse fin ishing first in each heat, three to the horse finishing second, two to the third horse and one to the fourth horse. Only those horses that have started in four races or more In as many matinees to he eligible Ip the final counting, unless, through Illness, lameness or accident, a horse that has started In three mati nees was prevented from starting In the fourth, and the race committee was notified i.i writing of the trouble at the time it occu -ed, allowing them to have a veterinary make the necessary ex amination. Should this examination result in evidence proving conclusively the horse is not in condition, it then is to bo optional w-ith the committee whether tho horse is eligible In the final count ing. Should two or more horses be equal (tied) at the conclusion of tho season, the winner shall be decided by the toss of a coin. ^ By the adoption of the above plan every starter during the season will be given an opportunity to try for this valuable prize, which any owner would be pleased to win. And it will serve the purpose of the association—to en courage the amateur and defeat the professional. There are few men who make such an expensive donation as has Theodore S. Miller, and his action is truly com mendable. It is quite likely that Mr. Miller was prompted to make this valuable donation because of the suc cess he has had with his mare Ida Gray, who holds the amateur matinee record of 2:13*4 ANNUAL BANQUET OF ESSEX BICYCLE CLUB.

PRINCETON FOOTBALL CANDIDATES HAVE FIRST PRACTISE; CREWS ARE SHOWING MUCH PROMISE Athletics at Old Nassau Are Booming—Heyniger Is to Pitch Big Games. — BY C. DEAN. [Special Coreapondf-nce of the Evening Star.] PRINCETON, April 27.—Spring foot ball jpractise at Princeton has been be ! gun under the direction of J. B. McCor ! mirk, who was captain of tho 1907 eleven. Many of the candidates for the 1908 team have been unable to report, however, for the daily drill, owing to the fact that they have been occupied \vith other athletic sports, such as base ball, track and rowing. Getting n Line on Them. The object of the spring gridiron work is to got a line on the men for next fall and give them Individual instruction as to training during the summer months preceding the beginning of the real work in September. As an inducement for the candidates, several cups have been offered for contests to be held in the near future in which proficiency in drop-kicking, punting, running in foot ball togs, will be considered. Baseball later feres. Captain Eddie Dillon, of the football team, has been unable to take part In the football practise, as he Is playing second base on the varsity baseball nine. A number of the freshman football team are also playing baseball so that the spring practise is lacking many of the star players. Hawing Season On. The main event of the past week in Princeton has been the beginning of the rowing season. With pleasant weather and (he lake in as good a con dition as any rowing course in the country, eight-oared shells have been launched for the first time on Carnegie Lake and every day about a hundred candidates are to be seen at work un ] der Coach Titus for the big inter-class | regatta to bo held on June 5, the day preceding the annual Yale-Princeton baseball clash. Condi Titus Busy. Coach Titus has many tyros on hand, and has made use of several rowing boxes along the shore of the lake near the new boathouse. Here he has be gun to teach the new ones the science of handling *lhe sweeps. These men, who were members of the class crews which met In the fall regatta last No vember, have started in the eights, and with them have been placed some of tho more jiromising tyros, some of whom have a considerable knowledge of rowing from the athletic club crews on which they rowed last summer. Many men who took up rowing for the first time last spring, when Coach Titus intrduced the sport here, became very proficient in the art through their experience last summer on athletic club crews. The nuxelinll Team. The baseball team has been doing only fairly well. Although no games have been lost since the first Virginia contest on the Southern trip—which was retrieved in a decisive victory a few days later—still the work of the squad has been unsatisfactory and ragged. In the game with Lafayette on Wednesday it was particularly no ticeable, for through Infield errors and loose play tho Easton, Pa., boys secured a lead of five runs over the Tigers in the fourth inning, the score being 7 to 2. Princeton woke up and played good ball. Clark, who had relieved Drewes, pitched wonderful ball, and the whole team rallied as a man. The result was that consistent hitting soon tied tho score, and clever bunting won the game in the ninth, the final score be ing 8 to 7 in favor of the Jerseymen. Princeton's Star Boxiunil. Heyniger pitched Princeton to vic tory twice against Harvard, twice against Vale and once against Penn sylvania. He will undoubtedly be called on to twirl against Cornell this season and againBt Penn. Either Clark or Drewes had been expected to do the stunts in the box. Clark is a good pitcher in spots. When he is in good form lie is as reliable as Heyniger, but lie Is not a surety at any time. He will, however, be put in against Penn or any of the other "Big Six” who are not so formidable on the diamond, Iley niger being reserved for the sturdier l’oemen. The first Cornell-Princeton game will be played at Ithaca on Sat urday, May 2. PLAUTS BEST NEW YORK NAVAL RESERVES. L. S. Plaut baseball team played the United States Naval Reserves of New York on the Washington A. A. grounds Sunday morning, and beat them by the score of 15 to 4. The Plauts have one of the strongest teams in tho State and would like to hear from such teams as tile Carteret F. C., South Orange Field Club, Mata wan, St. Mary’s, of Hackensack; Wash ington A. A., Marions, of Jersey City, and teams of good standing. Address all communications to E. J. Bach, care L. S. Plaut & Co. Yesterday’s score: R.H.E.

Bea man caught sixty-one flounders and seven teen tomcods, and Wolff forty-eight floun ders, twelve tomcods and three small black fish. . , . k __. . . ... __ PITCHER TOM HUGHES, TIGERS’ NEW RIGHT-HANDER WHAT HEAD OFFICE BOY HEABD AT HIS OWN TABLE BY HEAD OFFICE BOY. SAY, did you got a postal card fro in the Warren street un dertaker? I heard you was going to get one, and the funny tiling about the guy who let the cat out of the bag was a lady who knows the Mrs. Warren street un dertaker. She told my sister at work the other day, and my sister was tell ing of it at the supper table when my mother hroko In with “There you are again. You don’t want the family secrets known and yet you sit right here, and tell everything in front of him.” That “him” means me, and right away I had to get out of the room with the door closed between us. But I got that much of the thing any way. If you don't get the postal let me know when I hand in my stuff for tomorrow, and I will find out more about It. Say, boss, did you know that fellow who spoke to you yesterday at tho gate. Look out for him. That is one of Cosgrove's ily men, and ho is trying to pump you to find out how the team is going to wind up if they koep Sullivan hero on the job. That’s what I think he wants to know, but anyway he is one of those “I want to know fellows," and don’t tell him what time It is if you don’t have to. Mrs. O'Brien, who lives next door to us, wants to know if "Darby” O’Brien has a freckle on his nose. I don't know, do you? She says that, she had a cousin who left Ireland some years ago and ho had a freckled nose, and maybe it is her cousin Darby who is playing ball with the Tigers. I told her that he had plenty of sand In his carcass, and she asked me how I knew what he had inside of him. You know Mrs. O’Brien don’t know anything about slang. She said to me this morn ing “Arc you going to the game today?’’ j and I says “What do you want to know i for? So as you can tell the old lady ?” and she fired back “That’ll do now, go make your little bow and be off.” Sure if I was off she would be the first ono to call me daffy. That's the way with some of the harps I know. They want to see you right, and then when you are they want to see you tho other way, and If you try to please them all you would be up in the “sniff out” house. I have heard fellows on the car say ing "What is the office boy driving at?” You would think I was a carpenter, or one of those fellows who wears a high hat every time some one departs for the other side of life. Now, if they said, What, am I talking about? I would not care so much, for sometimes I don’t myself, and If I don’t how arc they expected to? Anyhow' 1 want a place to air my views, and if I can’t do it at home without being aired myself why I will continue doing it here. I am go ing to butt into the game today, and I will tell you something tomorrow. Yes terday the fellows had their girls with them and I didn’t have much time to stand near any of them because fellows nowadays are awful jealous if they see a good-looking guy standing near their girls. If I wasn’t good-looking—but then, what’s the use of complaining. - CITY ADVERTISEMENTS. OFFICE of the • Board of Street and Water Commissioners of tho city of Newark, City Newark. N. J..

M’YEY-BURNS BATTLE They Are to Fight for a Purse of $20,000 and Stories Are Afloat. All the way from Paris comes the story that Tommy Burns and Sam Mc Vey are going to fight and that an agreement has been made which for bids the burly colored man Mac from putting a sleeper over on Burns should a chance present itself. Now, while this is only a rurnor, there is certainly something behind It to arouse such a story. The sports over in Paris are not as wiso to the inside workings of the boxing game as those who stand around the corner of Broadway and Forty-second streot, New York. But even these gents of Wisdom have been fooled in their day, so how much easier for the Paris greenhorns to be led to slaughter. Sam McVey has never done anything for which the tight fans adjudged hint entitled to step in the front rank of champion pugilists. This same story that says the affair has been "cooked” also says that the men are to fight for a purse of $20,000, a..d that it will take place on Juno 13 next. This Is certainly easy money, even taking It for granted that the light will be strictly an honest one. Sam McVey would grow gray waiting in this country for such a purse, and If the Parisian stories about the fight being fixed and that Burns will win, no one can blame Sam for going into a deal wherein he is to get a chance to cut off a large slice of that purse. The rumors of crookedness carry the story that McVey has agreed to quit. Well, those who are Interested can fol low " 's fight up and see for them selves. Perhaps these rumors are only rumors, and again, perhaps, they have some foundation. At any rate, there will be no wagers made on the fight on this side of the p-nd unless Burns sends a letter over to some of his friends Instructing them, to get down on the fight. If McVey can get a purse of $20,000 to battle for I wonder what the Parisians would give Jack Johnson to meet Burns. France must be fighting mad these days. It such purses are offered for second raters like McVey, Jim Jeffries ought to be able to get a million dollars to go over and meet any man the French | people might dig up for him. ORANGE VALLEYS WIN THEIR OPENING GAME. Over 5,000 people saw the opening game of the Orange Valley team's sea son yesterday afternoon on the Valley street grounds in Orange. The initial game was a victory for the Valley boys, who won from tho Hudsons by a score of 2 to 1. Taggart pitched excellent hall for the Orangeltes, and his team mates backed him up well. The score by innings: West Hudson.0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0—1 Orange Valley..:.1 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0—2 Batteries—Chalmers and Reed; Tag gart and Barrett. Denf Mules to Piny Hull.
