' Hace to Hold the Annual Foot* ' ball Contest a Matter of Keen Discussion. CADETS LIKE POLO GROUNDS NEW YORK. June 24.—Once more the Army-Navy football game ap pears to be in some danger. The athletic associations of the Military Academy at West Point and Ihe Naval Academy at Annapolis are teadlocked over the place for holding what has come to be considered the most spectacular battle of the grid iron. It was learned yesterday on good authority that the representa tives of the Army eleven have de clared flatly that the game must be | played in New York or at West Point ‘ or not at all. -The midshipmen are opposed to the longer journey to this city, and want to go back to Franklin Field. Phila delphia, where the contest has been held for several years Last spring representatives from both academies visited the Polo grounds and were well pleased with the Held and seating capacity, but the transportation problem loomed up for the midshipmen, and it looked for ■"'a time as if the. difficulty could not be overcome. It was pointed out. however, that the journey from An napolis could be made almost as eas ily as the one from '.Vest Point to Philadelphia, but the Navy still de murred. If the West Point cadets stick to the ultimatum which it is said has been given, the big game may still come to this city and be played at the Polo grounds, where seats could be provided for 40.000 persons. Tickets for the game have been in such demand for five ..-r six years that the contest has outgrown Franklin Field, and no other enclosure is so well adapted to the needs and re quirements as the big stadium in the lee of Coogan's bluff. GOLFERS INDIGNANT OVER “PRO” CHARGES S.'LT LAKE CITY. Ctah, June 24. —Sf. .-rubers of the Mid-Western Golf team, which arrived here yesterday, were Indignant at the imputation that their amateur standing had been af fected by their trip to the coast. They denied that home clubs on the coast had contributed to their ex penses. "There is nothing to it at all,” said Carl Duval, one of the party laat night. “We were invited by A. S. Kerry, of Seattle, to come to the coast and meet the golfers there as his guests. We did so. We received no compensation directly or Indirect ly, nor do we know of any being given to any one In connection with our trip. The charges are wholly unfounded." EXCURSIONS.

Captain HENRY BEEBE, Fishing Pilot M'NAMARA IS SURE ONE BIG GAMESTER Australian Is Displaying Won* derful Nerve Now and He Did “Over Home.” CLARK AND GOULLET AGAIN Reggie McNamara, the Australian cyclist, who was severely injured two days after his arrival here from the Antipodes, is training again and ex pects to get into the game at the Velodrome within two weeks. Mc Namara left the hospital Sunday morning and was a spectator at the races at the Velodrome in the after noon. McNamara is certainly a gamester, and Morey Gordon, who trains All Goullet, rates him as the nerviest lad that ever sat on a bicycle. Gordon trained McNamara and Jackie Clark in the Melbourne six-day race run in February, 1912, and yesterday he related an instance that shows the wonderful nerve of the foreigner. On the second day of the race Mc Namara was in great pain and upon being examined by a physician it was found that the cyclist was suffering from an abscess in his groin, which was of such a nature it made an im mediate operation necessary. The doctor said he must be taken to a hospital, but McNamara objected in no uncertain terms and declared that he would finish the race at all haz ards. So the operation was performed in the training ouarters. A cross spilt, requiring twelve inches, was made in McNamara's side, and the rider stood the opera tion without the aid of an anasthetic. At the conclusion of the operation McNamara immediately relieved Clark on the track. The other riders knew "Reggie" was in trouble and as soon as he came on the track a "jam" was started by Paddy Hehir,, who was Alf Goullet's mate in the race. A spill occurred in the jam and Mc Namara and Hehir went down with big Alf Grenda falling on top of Mc Namara. It was thought that Mc Namara was done for. but he was the first man up and upon mounting his extra wheel he started another jam and was one of the most aggres sive riders during the remainder of the contest. Gordon is a great ad mirer of his fellow Australian and predicts that he will be a prominent figure in the races here. The Clark-Goullet match behind tandems, which proved to be a fizzle Sunday, on account of a puncture to Clark's wheel, will be rerun at the Velodrome tomorrow night. The race will be run under the same conditions that prevailed Sunday with the same tandem teams doing the pacing. * • A half-mile professional champion ship will be the feature of the mid week card, with a five-mile open and a two-mile invitation the other pro fessional races on the program. The amateur events will be a half-mile handicap, one-mile invitation and a five-mile open. This will be the first amateur race over the five-mile route run this season. * • Hermann Packebusch, of Germany, is showing better form at every meet, and if he continues to improve he will he a contender in the big races at the Velodrome. At Philadelphia last night the German showed sur prising speed and was third in two heats of the big international match race, which was won by Kramer. Packebusch defeated, among others, the ’speedy Grenda. Requires Only Two Games to Settle Controversy Over the Senior Title. JUNIOR HONORS AT STAKE Baseball representatives of the Boys’ Industrial School, of this city, are now City Senior Public School champions, as a result of their vic tory over the Miller Street School nine by 8 to 3, their second within a week, at the new public school ath letic field, in Bloomfield avenue, yes terday afternoon. As predicted. Industrial was the better team. The Miller lads gave a good account of themselves, however, but the big boys from Industrial proved Just a bit too much. Kreitier was again on the mound for the victors and is pitching helped materially in the decisive win. as he held the Miller youths to three hits and retired fourteen men on strikes. The contest yesterday marked the second of a series of three to decide the title, but as Industrial has al ready won two, a third contest is un necessary. The Junior City Public School title has not as yet been decided. Frank, lin School, champion of the Western Junior League, will have It out with Bergen Street School, winners of the Southern Junior League honors, at the public school grounds, in Bloom field avenue, tomorrw afternon, while the winner of this contest will line up against the titlehoiders of the Northern Junior League, which will be decided by an elimination contest.

A’1'—' JDQ0 Plainfield is going to help celebrate "Harry Smith Day” at Wieden mayer's Park on Saturday, but the fans from that town are coming to Newark to pay honor to their fellow citizen, Jack Martin, who is holding down the short field for the Roches ters, who are to be the Tigers’ oppo nents on that occasion. About 100 strong the Plainflelders will come to Newark in special trolley cars, and their presence at the game is sure to be encouraging to the Hustlers, for there Is certain to be much cheer ing and rooting for the "native son.” Martin is playing excellent ball for Rochester and Plainfield has much to be proud of him as a citizen. O The celebration on Saturday prom ises to be a Whopper. The popularity of Manager Smith has been on the increase right along and there seems to be a feeling that Newark fans should show their appreciation of his efforts—and show it right away. George B. Solomon, president of the Newark Club, started the. ball a-roll ing, and it has been taken up and passed along by a number of well known and dignified business men. B. M. Shanley, jr., said that he could be counted in as "among those pres ent" next Saturday and “B. M.” has also made his presence felt in a more substantial way. The fans who are at leisure on that day are sure to at tend and the gathering promises to be a large and enthusiastic one in every respect. A pin, as a present to Manager Harry, will be among the ceremonies of the day. O Matty Mathewson is still the "old master." He never fails. When the Giants are in trouble out comes Matty and dries all tears. He is "just about through" every year, yet he doesn't seem to have lost any of his cunning. His strong arm retains its power and his fertile brain has lost none of its strategy. He is consist ent as a winner, and no particular club seems to be better than another against him, although Cincinnati has proved to be a real weakling. As to Matty still being the "old master,” his game against Brooklyn at the Polo grounds yesterday is certain evidence. He won it, 5 to 1, and in doing so he is credited with pitching only seventy balls. The record for the fewest numbes of balls pitched is sixty-eight, accomplished twenty-two years ago by Ben Sanders, of the old Athletics, yet Matty, "about all in," comes within two balls of the record.

SWACINA’S HIT A SENSATION No more genuine enthusiasm was ever shown at a ball game than that which greeted the "Star Ball Player" yesterday afternoon during the progress of the ggme at Wieden mayer’s Park between the Newark Tigers and the Montreal Royals. Branford place was crowded with men and boys, the latter In the ma jority, with here and there a devotee of the game from the gentler sex. The crowd extended far Into Treat place, moving reluctantly when called upon to make room for traffic. Every hit and sensational play made by the Tigers was greeted with loud cheers, and Wyatt Lee missed some of the sensations of victory by being too far away to catch the echo of the demonstrations that followed each of the strikeouts. Demmit's three bagger In the ninth, and Billy Zim merman’s muff of Esmond’s fly, which followed, caused as much con sternation in Branford place as they did at the ball park. This was In marked contrast to the vociferous cheering that followed Swaelna’s hit that won the game in the final round, which brought many faces to the windows In adjacent office buildings and was heard far beyond the "Four Corners.” Every play is flashed on the board simultaneously with Its occurrence at the grounds, and the only part of the national pastime that is not in dicated are the arguments with the umpire, which is one feature of the "Star Player” that may be termed an advantage for the mechanical fans over the fans who are getting the real thing. The Star Player will be in operation during every week-day game in which the Tigers engage during the remainder of the season. YANKEES VICTORIOUS AT ENGLISH TENNIS WIMBLEDON, England, June 24.— Maurice E. McLoughlin, the Ameri can national lawn tennis champion, won his ftrst match in the all-Eng land championship tournament on the courts here yesterday. McLoughlin defeated H. Roper Barrett after five hard-fought sets hy a score of 4—6, 8—6, 1—6, 6—2, 8—6. Wallace F. Johnson, of Philadel phia, a member of the American Davis cup team, also won his match. Ho defeated A. W. Andrews in straight sets by a score of 6—1, 6—0, 6—3. The American player used his chop stroke and his swift American service to great advantage, winning an almost bloodless victory. R. Norris Williams, another mem ber of the American team, was drawn against P. T. Tabush in the first round. The latter scratched, so that Williams devoted himself to practise against F. S. Wilding, a brother of Anthony F. Wilding, the holder of the all-England title. The drawing of McLoughlin, the American, and Roper Barrett, who was the challenger of Wilding for the championship last year, and who Is regarded as certain of a place on the British Isles team that wi’.l de fend the Davis cup. furnished a dra ■ matte contest for the beginning of the great tournament. McLoughlin was deprived of his spikes, which are prohibited at Wim bledon. and was hardly over hi3 sea legs, so that his victory over one of the greatest players In England was the more remarkable. McDermott and McNamara, Americans, Doing Well in Big Open Tourney. ED RAY LEADS THE FIELD Edward Ray, open champion of Great Britain, led a field of sixty five players In the open champion ship tournament at Wimbledom, near London, yesterday, with a card of 73—74, 147, a stroke better than J. H. Taylor, former holder of the title, who had 73—75, 148. Michael Moran, of Dublin, was third with 150. There was a downfall of rain which had lasted over night and made condi tions miserable. John J. McDermott, of Atlantic City, the American open champion, threw a bomb into the British gallery in the form of a 75 for his early round, but the effort seemed to be too much, for he needed SO In the afternoon, making a total of 155 and bringing him into a tie with Josh Taylor for eighth and ninth places. An 80 in a British open champion ship is looked upon as being some thing of considerable difficulty to overcome, and it was this score which Tom McNamara, of Boston, the Metropolitan open champion, re turned as the result of his first ef fort. He Improved It two strokes in the afternoon, making his total 158 and placing him well down on the list. The final stage of the tournament, which is now under way, requires seventy-two holes of medal play, so that McDermott, to Improve his Btandlng, will have to play the double round today in a fashion which will border on the miraculous. • • * The best grogs score and the first net score were made with handicap match yesterday over the Deal golf links by Mrs. W.

BURNS’S TRIAL IS NEXT CALGARY, Alberta, June 24.—Ar thur Pelkey, the pugilist, was last night acquitted of a manslaughter charge which was placed against him as the result of the death of Luther McCarty, who died in the first round of a scheduled ten-round bout at the Burns arena here May 24 last. It was charged by the government that McCarty died from a blow adminis tered by Pelkey. In his charge to the Jury Mr. Har vey admitted that mere was some doubt as to whether or not the con test was illegal, but he said there was no doubt that death had been caused by a blow, and that the jury should consider only whether the de fendant was guilty of causing the death of his opponent in an effort to win the prize placed upon the con test. Pelkey was jubilant when he learned of the verdict, and declared it was exactly what he expected The jury was out forty-five minutes, and the verdict was to the effect that the contest was a ptlte fight, but that Pelkey was not guilty of manslaught er inasmuch as the blow he struck was not intended to cause fatal re sults. A big demonstration followed the announcement of the verdict, and as Pelkey stepped fro mthe prisoner's box he was warmly congratulated. A general rush was made by friends of the accused to shake his hand and to extend congratulations. The contest, which resulted in the manslaughter charge, was a sched uled ten-round affair, and terminated when it had been In progress less than two minutes. The great crowd had Jiardly settled in tlie seats in an ticipation of a long, gruelling battle when McCarty fell to the floor after a quick exchange of blows. The crown contended it was during this ex change that the blow to the jaw was struck. The trial, which was begun June 19, lasted only four days. The de fense presented several medical ex perts to show that death was not caused by the blow to the jaw', which the prosecution contended caused a subluzation of the heck and subse quent death. The trial of Tommy Burns will be held here in October. Only S2fl for McCnrty! SPRINGFIELD, Mo., June 24.— Probate Judge G. C. Lydy yesterday refused to approve the Inventory of the Luther McCarty estate because it listed his proceeds from the fatal fight at Calgary, Alberta, as only $26. He said he would begin an in vestigation into the matter. The gate receipts at the fight were several thousand dollars and Mc Carty was to get fifty per cent. The petition accompanying the inventory declared that William McCarney, the late pugilist's manager, paid out of the fight’s proceeds fare for Mrs. McCarty, himself and the pugilist’s body to Piqua, O., burial expenses and $100 for a monument.

KNOCKOUTS ARE ON TAP Jack Palmer, of this city, and Jimmy Faeane, of New York, were the winners In the star bouts at the Central Institute last night. Palmer' shaded Ray Hatfield, and FaBane had the better of Battling Jimmy. The Hatfleld-Palmer match was even until the start of the third ses sion, when Palmer took advantage of Hatfield’s openings and scored re- . peatedly to the face and stomach. Both tried hard in the final session, with Palmer on the long end by a slight margin. Fasane proved too clover for Jim my, and finished strong in the fourth round, when he landed blow after blow to his opponent's face. Three knockouts terminated bouts of the preliminary order. Frankie Dodd, of West Orange, disposed of Young Garrett In two rounds: Young Knecht sent Young Lucas to the boards in the first round, and Freddy Massey lasted less than a round with Patsy Brown. Young Donnelly beat Fred Sedel in four rounds, and Young Mann and Leonard Witt boxed four tame rounds, with Mann the winner. Johnny Coulon, the bantamweight champion, fought a ten-round draw with Frankie Burns, of Jersey City, at Kenosha, Wis., last night. For four rounds the two bantams boxed toe-to-toe without either gaining the advantage. The fifth round went to Bums by a big margin, the sixth was even, and in the seventh Coulon won the long end of the round. In the eighth and ninth both b6ys seemed tired and willing to go into clinches. Coulon started in the tenth with a rush, but Burns, it was claimed, had a shade the better of the round. What was to have been an eight round bout at Memphis, Tenn., last night between Joe Jeannette and Jeff Clark, of Joplin, Mo., negro heavy weights, was stopped by the referee in the last round and declared "no contest." Jeannette had the better of the bout from the start, and in the opinion of the referee, was mak ing no effort to dispose of his op ponent. Johnny Griffith, the Akron, O., lightweight, was matched with Knockout Brown, of New York, yes terday for a fifteen-round fight at Put-in-Bay, O., on July 4. Joe Goldberg, of Rochester, knocked out Kid Julian, of Syracuse, in the fourth round at Rochester last night. Matty Baldwin, the Boston light weight, decisively outpointed Bobby Wilson, of Schenectady, in a fast ten-round bout at Schenectady laat night. There was plenty of activity at the respective camps of Champion Willie Ritchie and Mexican Joe Rivers in Frisco yesterday. Both boys haVe considerable weight to take off. Riv ers announced at the conclusion of the day's work that he weighed Just one pound less than he did yesterday morning. Ritchie paid attention to the box ing end yesterday.
