CANT RUN RACES
' With Champion Laid Up. Rain, as Usual. Halts Contests. BITS OF CYCLING GOSSIP I Owing to the inclement weather the I racing portals of the Velodrome ft were not even opened yesterday, and I there were gobs of gloom hovering around the cyclists owing to the ft- monetary loss. IFrom the action of the weather man, when Frank Kramer is absent, It looks as if cycle racing cannot be r run without the East Orange speed I boy. At the start of the season the local management tried to run to see how the other stars would draw while Kramer was In Europe, but w the elements would not even give them a chance to try out their pet scheme. After Kramer came home there was fine weather, the races were run and everything was lovely. Kramer winged himself the other day while cranking his petroleum buggy and w-ould not have been able to ride yesterday had the meet been run. Lo, and behold, if the weather ft didn't stop that meet, and now the ft promoters are figuring what to do in I case Kramer quits the game. g * • * In the near neighborhood or the Velodrome the track Is not called the Velodrome, but instead carries the euphonious title of “Good Ship Mara caibo,1' and thereby hangs a tale. I Cleveland Damon Holies, better ft known as Willie, christened the i “ship" and he has an able crew to help man the said ship. Willie is the captain bold, while the arduous(?)| I duties of first broom and first officer I have fallen to the lot of William "Happy" Marsh, who was at one! Itime a member of the training- crew, j It has been a hard task to keep the i I good ship in condition this season so j that she could sail on time as often j as the promoters wanted to or the I weather would permit, as age and strenuous use caused many leaks to be sprung, necessitating much caulk-1 I ing of the seams by Captain Bolles I and his crew. Captain Bolles was I also keeper of the log and a slant at I the same disclosed a few entries that ft shows how the weather has been be- j having when Kramer was away. A j I few of the entries follow: March 29—Much rain fell—no races] —much gloom among the performers j and their valets—much joy among the crew (they won’t have to sweep up ] 3 next day). f April 6—Snow and rain—no races— mbre gloom—many "trains” annulled | , —looking for the jinx.

The • ither entries with few excep j , tions re ad the same, and It was not I anti! thi - entry of May 30 the captain I reported that mutiny was rampant ! among t he crew, the amateur deck hands si riking for more "money,” later folk -wing with one announcing | the deser tlon of a number of the [ better pait1 members. Afterwards ap pear a number of notes tn regard to the "war" tand the great loss suffered by "AdmA-al” tTppereu, then the council of tUar, the surrender and the ) great smokl ng of the pipe of peace. All went wel l until September 4. when ■ the “Great Allah" was winged by his road hen. Kramer was on hand yesterday, having driven over In a "Chinese Mercedes” along with a few friends. •The racing cyclists were able to get ; that much needed rest that they are all talking about, and Joe Fogler was not comp*-lied to come out of hiding in Brooklyn,: so, all told, while It was tooigh lueik all around, the cvclers themselves should have plenty Of rest and “pep" ''for the Wednesday j Bight meet. Reports have Just been received of the first day's meeting of the world's championships, run on the cement track at Leipslc. Germany, Thursday, August 28. The track, which is 500 metres to the lap. was a bit rough, which hamper*--d the riders to a cer tain extent. Tn the first heat Elle gaard beat Finn, Alessorl and others. Sehurmann, the German, won the second heat, beating Emil Friol. who was looked upon as an easy winner, w hilc the third heat resulted In a win fur Leon Hourller. the classy French man. In the fourth heat Andre Perchicot had little trouble in dis posing of Willie .Lorenz and Schilling and the fifth went to Otto Meyer, Peter and Rudel being the best of the defeated riders Stabe, a German sprinter, took the sixth heat from Gardollln and Hoffmann. In the seventh heat GaJbriel Poulain, the French aviator-cyclist, won from Moreiti and Wegener, while tho • ‘ghth heat went to Walter Rutt, who won from Polledri and Schwab. These eight riders and the winner of the repechage met on Sunday, August 81, in the three semi-finals, and the winners of the three semi finals, Rutt, Ellegaard and Perchicot, met in the final, which, as stated be fore in the Star, was won by Rutt, with Ellegaard in second piace. • * On Friday, August 29, the second day of the world’s championship meeting was held, and the following results were announced; Repechage of the world’s sprint championship: Winner, Friol; second, Polledri; third, Lorenz; fourth, Schilling. Race for German riders: Heat winners, Otto Meyer and Lorenz; second in heats, Rutt and Wegener. Race for stran gers. First heat won by Polledri over Perchicot, Ellegaard and Hourller; second heat, Poulain won from Mor retti, Friol, Schilling and Schwab. m Eight riders qualified for the 100 kilometre <.K% miles) championship of the world by riding in four quali fying heats. The following eight were Hie lucky ones to meet in the final on Sunday, August 31: Gulgnard, Thomas, Walthour, Llnart, Scheuer mann, Miquel, Van Nek and Gun ther. As reported by cable, Guignard won the. race, no mention being made of the second or third man to finish. m m * At the Revere Beach track, Boston, on Saturday night, Bob Spears, the Australian cyclist, defeated Frank Cavariagh, the local favorite, in straight heats of a French style match race. Spears rode from be hind in each heat and won the half mile heat by a length in 1:33 1-5, while In the one-mile event he only won out by the width of a tire, the time being 3*22 2-5. At the same meeting Percy Law rence, Jimmy Moran and Clarence Carmen met in a twenty-five-mile paced race and linished in that order in 34:211-5. Carmen led his oppo nents for twenty-one miles, when he punctured, and nett having a spare wheel had to abandon the contest. • * Victor Dupre won the Grand Prize of Arras in the Kench city of that name on Thursday.

But with the home-coming, InAJeud of the fans being in a hilarious spirit, there is really a feeling of apprehen sion among them. Such a condition, cannot be helped, of course, but sure ly there appears to be little reason for stieh anxiety. With a team that is staunch and true and with matertaJ the class of the league, a slump, though annoying, is certain to be overcome. The case of the Tigers' is not similar to the case of some clubs which blow out in front for a while and quit for all time when collared. Newark has a ball team—a first-class, steady, evenly-balanced ball team—a team that has won Its way to the front because of its gen eral all-around superiority and a team that is about as sure as baseball soreness can be to win the gonfalon of the season of 1913-1914. O "Falnt heart never won fair laJV' is an old story, but there seems to be more faint hearts at the present time in and around Newark than even good judges of such things would imagine. Everybody and his brother seems to be stretched his full length on the floor yelling, “We're beaten— we're beaten!” when, getting right down to brass tacks, as "Kinley Mack” would say, it is almost a moral certainty that good old Tige will comp home with the pennant with a naughty little twinkle in his eye. The cry of alarm and the cry of help is everywhere, and oceans of tears end rivers of sobs are nowhere more pronounced than right at the famous “Four Corners." There'e where you get the right dope, right out of the bat bag. According to the "prophets,” Newark la not going to win the pennant. All the other teams in the league are against the Tigers, so 'tis said, and are for the Rochesters, and for that reason the Hustlers are being “shooed home" as champions. That is the silly story you’ll hear if you just for one mo ment lend your ear to the gossips. —O The fart is. though, Rochester, not Newark, is the “In bad” club. John Ganzel, manager of the Hustlers. Is for from popular, while Harry Smith, handicapped though he is by the pres ence of "Wise Man” Solomon, is ad mitted to be the biggest favorite In , the International League. So the J yarns we hear that the clubs are "lay- j ing down” to Rochester and “playmg their, heads off” against Newark are not to be believed at all. The real facts are, as Harry Smith says, “We have been in a little slump, but we are out of it. Luck has been kind to us all year and we have no complaint to offer. We struck a snag the very last thing, but it is not dangerous. Alt the boys are working hard and our defeats came about more through the "breaks” In the game than through any lack of effort. We will win sure, though, and we will win by a good margin. We are home for a run of games and that means a run of vic tories.” Those who know baseball at all, know that the flying leader is some times brought up with a sudden jerk. It has been so with the Giants in the National League and with the Athlet ics In the American League. In the Southern League it has been even worse, for Mobile, looked upon a few weeks ago as a certan winner, hat been nosed out by half a game by the Atlanta Club. That’s the way or base ball—the luck of the game. To win today from the champions and to be beaten tomorrow by the tale-enders is nothing new or startling. Rather it is a common occurrence and it is that same uncertainty that makes baseball the great, big, honest sport it is In this year of Our Lord. As to the standing of the clubs, Newark has an advantage of ex actly five full games over Rochester. In bold figures, the Tigers have won 88 games and lost 53, while the Hustlers have won 83 games and lost 67. In order to overcome tills tre mendous lead—and it is a tremen dous lead, with Newark having only twelve games to play and with Rochester having only fourteen games to play—the Hustlers would have to win practically all their re maining games and the Tigers would have to lose about 50 per cent, of their twelve games in order to cap ture the hunting. That’s the situa tion aB the figures show us, and Tige would have to fall all over himself to lost out. -- There is no denying the fact that the Newark team has had a very annoying slump, but, as Harry Smith says, that is over with now, and Tige will get down to business again. From what I can hear, throughout all the hard luck and the trouble Manager Smith never once lost heart or hope. He has been the optimistic man at every stage of the game and he has been so sure of victory that he kept the other play ers from worrying. As far as "cold feet” are concerned, there is nothing like that on the Newark team. All the chills seem to be among the local fans, and they are crying before they’re hurt. —w When the race Is over and the pen nant is won, cheers and praises and all kinds of nice things will be in or der for the Tigers. To Harry Smith something substantial should go for his great efforts. He has earned the city's good will, and a baseball pen nant to any community is worth more in the way of desirable publicity than the city ever pays for it. Newark hasn't made much of a fuss over Its almost certain champions so far, but it is understood that there is a plan on foot to select 100 citizens as a com mittee and have them arrange for a mammoth celebration. In other cities Lb* Board of Trade baa generally made it their business to take the in itiative in suoh matters, and it would be just the pifoper caper if Secretary James Reilly should lead the way In this particular case. He, no doubt, would be able V" interest the board members in the yoeiebration and then the committee of 100, with Its able efforts, would make the affair a tre mendous success. If something in a big way is going tee be done it should be stavted at once. One seems to be waiting for the other and the uncer tainty of the pennant, perhaps, has has! something to do with the lack of > activity. But if Secretary Reilly would only get on the Job and form some tentative plans, when the issue Is settled things could be rushed to a ,fi tt ing\coucl usion. —©— New' York ■ has even more ito worry about Ilian Newark, yet Jdhn Mc Graw, like Harry Smith, is saying. “Surepop!" whenever he is asked if the Giants wilt win the Naitlonal league pennant. Philadelphia fans get shaky, too. now and then, but Ronnie Maclds smile generally drives aft cares away. Fears, pf course, are sure to be entertained right up to the la*t ditch, but whetf the time comes around It is dollars t^o dough nuts ihat the Giants and tine Athlet ics will be lighting out the- world's series at the Polo Grounds and at Shibe Park'. _ Newark fans 'who- expected to get a hunch as a result of the exhibition game between the Giants and the Athletics yesterday were sadly fooled. Tn playing eleven innings to a 1 to 1 score, the teams surprised everybody. As to the players being regular Giants or regular Athletics, of course they weren't, nor did a'nybody expect, they would. Everything was up and above board and all the newspapers carried very fair stories, not mislead ing the fans in the least. Those who went to Wiedenmayer s Parle expect ing to see even a few of the regu lars in uniform were playing on their own imagination. I understand there were a few kicks, hut really these were out of order. As far as the game itself was concerned, the Giants and the Athletics in all their strength and glory couldn't play bet ter baseball. It was a fine exhibition and the teams did tlreir best to beat one another. In the eleventh inning it looked as if the piayers were anxious to get the game nver with, 1 i Craze for Speed Regardless of Safety Menace to Cyclists. RULES NOT ENFORCED The accident to Worth Mitten at Philadelphia on Thursday night, when the young Iowa pace-follower fell and injured his ankle, brings home to mind the fact that the regulations now in force for the governing of that branch of the sport in this country are very lax, and unless the N. C. A. changes the rules a more serious acci dent than the one to Mitten is likely to occur. In Europe, where motor-pacett ^rac ing is all the rage, and where in one year, 1904, to be exact, many of the riders were killed while engaging in these events, due entirely to the mas sive pacing machines then in us© and the craving for speed, safety was sac rificed for speed, and in about two months of that fateful year nine prominent riders met their death. After a number of these accidents, realizing that more riders would be killed, if something was not done, the cycling bodies changed the regulations covering the protection allowed the riders. Among the reforms noted was the placing back of the roller, the abolition of wind shields, narrow mo tors and the proper dressing of the moter riders. \\ ith the changing of the regula tions it was noted that the time of the races was somewhat slower, so be tween scheming motor riders and pro moters, who saw that the regulations were enforced only in b perfunctory manner, the speed gradually grew fas ter, until, at the present time in Eu rope, conditions are such that the U. C I., the governing body, at its last meeting, held in the Hotel de Russe. Berlin, Germany. Saturday, August 23, passed a motion that motor-paced racing was becoming too dangerous and that the regulations would have to be changed to make the sport safer. What changes will be made will In all probability be in regards to the size of the horsepower of the motor, the moter riders’ costumes and the length of the roller back of the motor. At the present time the roller Is 40 centimeters (16 Inches) and the front wheel of the rider’s bicycle is to be 60 centimeters (20 inches) from the crank case. As the nearer a rider gets to his pacemaker the more protection he will receive, it is probable that the roller will be placed back still further, which will make it harder work for the riders and surely lessen the speed. In this country the motor-paced regulations are not enforced and the pacemakers have been getting away with all kinds of stuntF. Large cos tumes, which gives plenty of protec tion to the rider following, is making the racing so fast that it has reached a stage bordering on danger. Then, again, the cyclists themselves, in theii desire to win. for the money that is in it or for future contracts, take un necessary chances, riding tires that are not the safest in the world by any means. In regard to tires, it might be said that the constant slipping while traveling at high speed wears away the outer strip and sometimes the riders will finish a race with a tire that is nearly worn through. For the sake of the sport and also for the protection of the riders, it is to be hoped that the National Cycling Association will, at its next meeting, pass regulations governing this branch of the sport that will make It one of safety, with every rider hav ing an equal chance as regards pacing equipment, and see that the. regula tions are enforced to the letter. Among other regulations that should be passed is one that will compel the cyclists to ride with covered tires. By so doing accidents like the one that befel Worth Mitten, which was caused by a tire bursting, will be re duced to a great extent, and the safety of the riders is something that should u- thought of. PROMINENT CYCLING MEN AT THE BALL GAME FRANK KRAMER FLOYD MAC FARLAND but It was so dark that they couldn't be blamed for not wanting to run the chance of injury. All in all, the game afforded a pleasant afternoon to about 3,000 fans. The weather was so threatening that the attendance was little short of marvellous. With only ''Hookies” anticipated—even though they were Giant "Rookies" and Athletic “Rookies”—a crowd of 3,000 on a clear, beautiful day would have been a large number to expect, tout according to the interest and the enthusiasm and the attendance, with a clear, beautiful day, it Is about the surest thing possible that 10,000 persons would have turned out to ■witness the contest. —O— The game was played for charity’s sake, and was arranged by Father Bernard, P. C., for the benefit of St Joseph's School of Hoboken. The sum realized Is said to have been $1JK)0. and the New Yorks and the Philadelphia! gave their services free, and Messrs. Ebbets and the Mc Keevers donated the ball park. The game was well handled and well plgjyed, and we never will forget the musie in our ears as we sat in box No. 35. To be musically Inclined is very nice, but any music that we might stand for in the future will not have the cymbals or the base drum in the batting order. The crowd down at Wiedenmayer’s was not made up of regulars by any means. Some came from New York and others from various parts throughout Jersey “Just to see the Giants and the Athletics play.” With the bike races declared off at the Velodrome, a number of the fans made tracks for the ball game. Among them were Frank Mihlon. Lou Wyckoff, Harold Dibblee, Cham pion Frank Kramer and Floyd Mac Farland. Mr. Mihlon sat close to the band, but Kramer and MacFar land. who do not take very kindly to the classics, shook the muslo and mixed up with the chatter of the fans. Kramer's right arm Is still In splints, and he seems to enjoy the fact. Anything for a good rest seems to be the champion's swan song Just now. Besides, Kramer will be none the worse off financially because of his injury. He will get what Is coming to him from Messrs. Mihlon and Uppercu, and he Is in an accident insurance company that brings him $50 a week. Still the champion told me confidentially that he didn't care a hang for the money; it was the rest he was after. Atlanta, among other things the home of John M. Chapman, the Cy cling promoter, made a wonderful finish and won the Southern League championship by beating out Mobile half a game. It was a moat peculiar finish, In that to lose the pennant Mo bile had to lose a game to New Or leans yesterdey, which she so mag nanimously did. If It had rained Mo bile would have won the champion ship, as Atlanta was through with 81 victories and 66 defeats. But It didn’t rain and Mobile played and lost and It proves once more that baseball la the squarest sport in the world. Talking about Mr. Chapman jthe former Velodrome manageiv It Is Bald, has called off his proposed trip to Australia. The reason, so Tm told, Is because Mr. Chapman could not persuade Eddie Root to make the trip. Others who contemplated going to the Antipodes with Mr. Chapman were Iver Lawson and Worth Mit ten. The decision of Root to remain In the U. S. A. was some drawback, but when Mitten hurt his ankle that settled It. Instead of going to Aus tralia, Mr. Chapman will now pay a visit to htg home at Atlanta. He will spend the winter there, after which he will go to Baltimore and Washing ton, where he will build tracks and become a promoter. —O Six-day bike talk Is in the air. Already one team has signed, and It is a cracking good team, too. Reggie McNamara, who has been noted In the long, hard races, has paired up with Eddie Root, the winner of sev eral long grinds. This will make a pretty nifty combination, and Frank Kramer, who says he Is going to ride In the New York race, may ask to have Jackie Clark as a partner. Of course, there will be a cry of "murder" If Kramer and Clark ever team up. but with Joe Fogler and ' Alfred GuulluL McNamara and Kuot and Alfred Grenda and Fred Hill as partners. Kramer and Clark would not be much out of place. The Federal Leaguers, an "outlaw" organization, Is going to claim the city championship of St. Louis. The organization clubs, the Browns and the Cardinals, should worry, we might add. The "outlaws" say that they are entitled to the honors be cause they have a better percentage than either the National or the Amer ican League, but to settle the matter decisively they will condescend to play the Browns and the Cardinals for the title in a post-season series. Of course the “outlaws” will not be accommodated, and their claims will not be heeded. Funny thing, but the “outlaws" are always so magnani-. mous. They will play with the or ganization men at any game know ing full well that such a thing can never happen. "There is nothing to prevent the Cardinals and the Browns from meet ing us," says Edward Steininger, president of the local Federal League club. "It’s up to them. We feel we have the class to stack up against either one of the teams and in addi tion we are the only St. Louis club that will finish In the first division this season, so they are doing us no (particular favor If they meet us.” That sounds just like the “outlaws.” It was so here when the strike of the bike riders was on. You could hear It on the 6treet and you could read It In the papers that the great est riders In the world were at the Motordrome. Yet with all the boost ing the "outlaws’’ didn't draw a cor poral's guard. —©—» Football ft breaking Into fire lime light In dead earnest.
