All in all they are pretty fair, as good as in any other Eastern League town, with the possi ble exception of Toronto and Montreal. In Toronto ferries are necessary to carry the crowds from the mainland to Hanlon's Point, while In Montreal there are two different lines passing the door.

I WHAT A DIFFERENCE IN A YEAR N0W A YEAR AGO. l_=3-- cgyras-— CATCHER CADY SIGNS CONTRACT FOR NEXT SEASON; IS A ‘COMER.’ Experts Expect Him to Make Good—Martin Due Monday. CATCHER CADY, of the Evansville Central League club, la one of the first of Joe McGlnnlty’s 1911 Tigers to send In his signed contract. As has been told In the STAR. Cady is a 900-pounder, who batted around .260 all season, though It was only his sec ond year In professional baseball. Cady Is a sure coiner, if some of the reports are true. With Lew McAllister, the veteran, and Cady and McCarthy, the new comers, McGlnnlty expects to have a staff of catchers who will uphold this department on a par with any club In the Eastern League. McCarthy Is tho \ youngster from Danville, Pa., who J gained fame first by his expert handling of Floyd Kroh's delivery before the southpaw was picked up by the Cubs. Kroh has one of the most difficult southpaw deliveries for any catcher to handle and Frank Chance was hot on his trail, but Cy Parkin recommended him to McGlnnlty and Joe beat the Peerless Leader to tho new man by a day. Hla signed contract la stowed away In the "Iron Man’s” strongbox. Secretary- Thomas Martin, who will again be with Newark, as announced exclusively- In the STAR, is duo In town next Monday. When McGlnnlty saw him two weeks ago in Bisontown Martin was taking a series of baths Just outside of BufTalo and asked for permission to remain at his home until after Thanksgiving. McGlnnlty readily acquiesced, and Martin is due on Mon day. — ROOSEVELT FIVE OPENS HOME SEASON AT ELECTRIC PARK BY SURE SHOT, ONE of the most interesting basket ball games of the season will bo played at Electric Park tomor row night when the Roosevelt Five makes ite initial appearance a.S'a local team, meeting the Dominican Five.

C. will stack up against the Lyceum Five, of Jersey City.

PASSES INTO HANDS OE COXE; TO SEASON AT ‘NEWBEEK.’ BY WALTER E. ERLER. Arrangements have been made by lease or otherwise whereby Colorado E., 2.04%, world's champion 3-year-old trotter, pastes Into the hands of A. B Coxe, of Paoll, Pa., and he will make the season of 1911 at j "Newbeek,” the breeding farm of Mr. I Coxo. at a fee of J300. The champion 3-yeaj>-old will be al ! lowed to cover thirty approved mares, j Mr. Coxe has fifteen mares of his own. f all of which will be bred to the cham | plon, arid fifteen outside mares will be bred to him. Breeders all over the country will be anxious to breed to this horse, and were the fee J500 it would ! probably make no material difference j to them. I It does, however, assure the son of i Tlie Bondsman thirty of the very best ; and highest class producers In this I country, which is to say the least a j handsome start for this phenomlnal | young trotter. PYE AND WALKER TO TEAM IN THE SIX-DAY BIKE RACE, j ERNEST A. PYE, the Australian cycle rider, arrived in New York yesterday, and he and his fellow countryman, Gordon Walker, Imme diately signed a contract to ride to gether as a team in the six-day race at Madison Square Garden December 4 to 10.

Jack Clarke, who is teamed with Floyd MacFarland and who w.^11 also race In the world’s sprinting championship on Saturday night, December 3, with Frank Kramer ; and Walter Rutt, is also another Aus- | tralian, so the "kangaroo" country is pretty well represented. Pye and Walker have Joined the already large i camp at Vailsburg and will train there right up to the start of the race. Percy I>awrence and George Wiley have decided to cast their fortunes to gether and are now training as a team to take part in the long struggle.

ESSEX COUNTY GAMES AT MORRIS PARK TOMORROW. About one hundred runners will com r to In the Essex County Athletic As sociation's six-mile road race, to be held tomorrow. The start will be made at Morris Park. While the road race is being held three open events will be carded on the track, which are a 100-yard dash, a 440-yard and a one-mile run. t i, . . . ■ :• . i M’GINNITY SIGNS CONTRACTS FOR IMPROVED BAIT, PAPH When Work Has Been Completed Plant Will Be One of the Best in the Minor Leagues—Everything About Wieden* mayer’s Will Be New and Modern—Provision Made for Autoists. Contracts win be signed today between the Newark Eastern League Club and the firms which will be in charge of the construction of Newark’s renewed ball grounds at Wiedenmayer'a Park. Manager Joe McQInnlty says that It will be made specific In the agreements that the park will be ready for the team to take possession of April 1. All of the old stands will be torn down and new ones will be built. The old centre field bleachers will be a thing of the past. They will be torn down and the fence lino will be moved twenty feet back Into the clearing, which Is now outside of the grounds. The present driveway will be occu pied by part of the grand stand, and another driveway will be In back of the new stand. On this the right field side of the park the fence line will be moved out 200 feet, taking In a good ly portion of the farm which Is ad jacent to the present local bailiwick. Follow Jersey City sst Rochester. The stands will be built the same as those on the West Side Avenue Park, In Jersey City. The grand stand will be practically the same outline as the old one, with bleachers on the first base side and the third base side ex tending Into the outer gardens. Cen tre field will be banked and automo biles will be given the privilege to re main there. The grand stand will com fortably seat 6,000, and the two Btands combined will afford as many seats The outfield embankment, while it will be without stands, will bo a sort of natural grand stand. Its slope will enable fans to Btand five deep and see over each others' heads. This will not be necessary unless a 20,000 crowd turns out, ho* ever. The distance from the home plate *o the right and left field fences, where the foul flags are sta”->ned, la now 285 feet. The fences of the new park on each side will be twenty feet further out, making It practically Impossible to drive a ball out of the enclosure. The length from the home plate to the foul Rags on the right and left field fences Is now 2S5 feet. In the new park it will be twenty feet further out on both sides of the fence. From the home plate to the centre field bleach ers It Is now 850 feet It takes a long drive to clear that fence, and this feat Is seldom performed. In the new park the centre field f**nce will be 400 feet from the plate, and will be fourteen feet high, built of double fencing. An idea of the ex penditure necessary to build the new park may be gleaned from the fact that the boarding alone necessary for the fence, not Including the uprights and posts, will cost $25 per 1.000 feet and 24,000 feet are required, making this Item alone $600. This does not In-; elude the cost of labor. A first-class press box on the level of! the field will be one of the features, as ! will the ladles’ retiring room, with a i reading table, upholstered furniture! and telephone connections. It is Mc Ginnity’s aim to get the fair serdown j to the games, as their presence ele- | vates the game. In other Eastern League towns they attend In large numbers. What day will be set aside for the ladles Is bard to say, and It will depend on the schedules. It Is the custom to pick out the day on which the team will be home most during the season and this Is set aside for the ladies. Last year It was Wednesday; the previous year It was Friday — “TABS” DECIDE ON EVENTS FOR THEIR BIO INDOOR MEET. THE list of events of the scheduled I Indoor meet of the T. A. B.

The Camerons, of New York, will meet the Philadelphia Thistles at West Hudson Athletic Field In the I afternoon. This contest will no doubt attract a record crowd, as both are fighting their utmost In order to stay for the final round of the com- ' petition. At Paterson the WUberforce eleven will have the Tacony F. C. to contend with.

C. will Journey to Connecticut tomorrow to play the Ae sonia F. C. A large crowd of soccer enthusiasts will vvke in the trip with the Dodger eleven. I* will be an even ly matched affair aD 1 the winner of the game is a doubtful proposition. The Clan McDonalds will have the Brooklyn Celtics as their opponents at Brooklyn tomorrow. TODAY'S BATTLE Contest Means Much for Both Fighters—If Owen Fails He Will Give Up Championship Aspirations—If Bat Flunks He Will Take to the Woods. Goodman Beats Sammy Smith. SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 26. A SUDDEN change in the over-night betting hag made Owen Moran an 8 to 10 favorite over Battling Nelson for their fight this afternoon In Coffroth's open-air arena here. Wager ing on the contest all along has been at even money and the unexpected shift of odds has caused the fight "fans" to engage in miTclT speculation over the eleventh-hour turn of sentiment. Bet ting Commissioner Tom Corbett says a belated rush of Moran money was the cause. Today's fight is looked upon as an elimination contest for a chance to challenge for the lightweight cham pionship. It will be a twenty-round bout, and Benny Sellg will referee Both the Englishman and Nelson are expected to extend themselves to the utmost to win, for defeat means to Moran a severe setback in his fight aspirations, and for tlio "Durable Dane" a probable quietus to ills fistic career. The pair are thought to be evenly matched and a fast, clever encounter is anticipated. Jack Goodman, of the west side, out fought Young Sammy Smith, of Phila delphia, last night in a ten-round bout at the National Sporting Club of America. Smiih was clever and fast, but his blows lacked weight. When Goodman landed it hurt, and several times he had Smith hanging on* 1* distress Richard Croker witnessed list.- bout, and at the finish awarded the decision!® to Goodman It was a good bout, but far from being sensational, and at no time during the ten sessions was cither man !r, danger of being knocked out. Goodman made the fight and the mill ing mostly was at close quarters, a style which Goodman is a past master of. When tie. uidii mixed at long range Smith landed flic cleaner blows, but the boys were lilt" the glue twins nearly all the time, and It war then that Huudsom- .!••• k < . IVyl.
