" This evening, George Weber, the con queror of the mjghty Jimmie Watt, the renowned Bridgeport bowler, and the leader In the state league, will clash with Johnson at the Orange stre al leys in thirteen games.

The winner of thirteen out of the twenty-five games will be the victor of the erles. Before Weber tackUd famous Jlm- s niie, Charlie Johnson and "Butch" ,'l were on an equal footing, but now that Weber has been able 'to taKe the series B from our Bridgeport friend, he has a M better standing In the eyes of the if bowling fans of this city.

There seems little In Trial Run Beats, Out Hoyt for Re lay by i-5 Second. As a result of the trials held Tues day afternoon on the board track at Harvard, P. C. Haskell was chosen the fourth man on the 'varsity relay team that will compete against Yale Saturday night in the B. A. A. games. The other members of the team are M. B. Van Brunt, H. Watson and E. K. Merrihew. Van prunt is captain. Until Tuesday the fourth place on the relay lay between P. C. Haskell and R. F. Hoyt, who had tied on the previous trials. Hoyt ran his trial first Tuesday, doing 780, but made the mistake of saving himself early In the run and doing the first two laps very slowly. . Haskell hit up a fairly fast clip for the first two .laps doing them several seconds better than Hoyt and he thus gained an advantage. He did not finish as fast but succeeded in going the distance In 52 3-5th seconds. This was enough to put him on the tean and Hoyt will be first substitute. PROYIDENCE IS FAST , LIGHT GUARDS VICTORS.

Bridgeport, Jan. 29 Though It wag concluded that the boxing game in Bridgeport had been killed as the result of the Btirke-Jounson fight, such ap pears not to be (he ease, as Mayor Iee has granted a permit to Robert Velt, of t lie Connecticut Breweries Co., to hold a boxing carnival in the Park City rink on February 29. and Mr. Velt has wired Harry Lewis, eonquerw of Frank Mlntell, holder of the welterweight championship, and Willie Fitzgerald, the 'fighting Harp," and both are ex-P'-cted to wire their acceptance of the terms. The views Of the mayor on boxing are well known. He believes that the exercise Is manly and healthful, but will not countenance for one moment matches of an unequal nature, or be tween a colored and a white man, as was the Burke-Johnson go, and thf mayor will not give permission for bouts to be held by any but responsible parties and positively will not allow them 1o be held in a theater. He 1ms refused permits to several partle lately, Including the Mohawk club to-day. A match between Harry Lewis and Willie Fitzgerald would be a fine draw ing card, for both boys are well known snd would put up a clean, even contest, in tne opinion or the promoter.

BOWLING NOTES Schiffer and W'arner ought to be able, with the assistance of the other localites, to take the swelling out of the Tigers' head which was caused by their victory of last evening. Who Is the champion bowfer of this city? ThlfJ will probably be settled in the meetings between Charlie Johnson, "Butch" Weber, Huber and a few of the other stars of this city. The first of these matches, that between Weber and Johnson, will be rolled to-night and to-morrow night thirteen of the games to-night at Swift & Hulse's al- I leys. West. 1910 S and Hill, 1908 S.. will roll for the bowling championship of I Yale this afternoon at Swift A Hulse's alleys. Wodtke, "the flying Dutchman," will mako his debut of the season In this city to-morrow evening, when Paw tucket will endeavor to pick the bud of the new New Haven polo aggregation. The local fans are much Interested In this player, whose home Is In this city, and they ought to avail themselves of the chance of again seeing the star at work Wodtke has been in (his sec tion of the country since the defunct interstate burst its cover. The other games scheduled for to night are Providence st. Waterbury, and New Britain at Bridgeport. BFRXS-PALMER FIGHT. London. Jan. 29. The fight be tween Tommy Burns and Jack Palmer of Newcastle, which was scheduled for Fe-bruary I. has been postponed until Februa'F Jfi. Xiespite the most flagrant form of mean rooting against him. George Weber, of New Haven, triumphed over Jimmy Watt, of this city. Monday night in this city. Winning as be did. Weber deserves all sorts of praise, for he was up against a bunch of sports who seemed resolved not to give him a fair deal, and his exhibition of nerve under the most trying circumstances has not been equalled In bowling cir cles in the state In years. The sport gains nothing by such unfair work, and the treatment Weber received was a disgrace to the game in Bridge, port. Had Watt won the 'ocal series, after losing eight out of thirteen games in the games rolled in New Haven, there is no doubt but that the scores would have been published the fol lowing morning, but he lost and the scores were destroyed.
