NEW BRITAIN HERE Jean's League Leaders Will Tackle Bone's Quintet This Evening. GRAYS COMING FRIDAY Hart Still Lends In Goal Making Lincoln Easily Holds the Rush ing Honors.' If the Boneyards expect to make a far better showing this week than last week It Is up to them to trim the league 'leaders this evening at the Quinnipiac rink. Jeans Woodehoppers have bit the dust many a time before In this city, and it is not necessary to Bay that they can do it again. The local five have had a little landslide, but It is honed that they have fully re covered and will hold their place on the top steps of the National league ladder. The Bridgeport team Is pushing the local quintet hard for second place hon ors, but a decided brace, which is most possible, on New Haven's part will pull the Elm City five up to that level where the Park City aggregation can Only touch them with a ton foot pole. Springfield, Starkie's five, which has been tumbling for weeks, but which, on account ot a big lead, are still lo cated just beyond Bridgeport, hopes for a revival, one which will push them up Into the lead again. Bill Miller, whom Starkle has the option of select ing, will prove a great assistance In Springfield's climbing. Waterbury and Providence, although they have two of the best teams In the league, manage to stick to the bottom of the ladder. Waterbury especially lias a fast aggregation, and from them the league has great expectations. On Friday night, McGilvray's Provi dence Grays will assemble at the local rink, and a hot rough house battle may be expected. Saturday night the local five will play In Providence. It is a hard week for Bone's team, but. they are equal to it. Hart made a gain on Jason last week and now leads him by eighteen goals. against eleven last -week.. The Spring field rusher Is going very fast for a man in a losing team and will in all probability hold his lead to the finish of the season. Lincoln Is under the weather, but continues to play, and Is holding his own In goal getting and still leads by a wide margin in taking rushes. Jason is second in rush taking. as he Is in goal making, and is gaining a little on Lincoln. Pence has joined the ranks of goal makers, the Pawtuck et goal tend having scored one goal, caging the ball on a clean drive the en tire length of the floor. Pierce ahso broke Into the select circle of foul makers last week. Incurring his first penalty of the season Saturday night. Harper jumped In the front In goal tending last week, supplanting Mallory and leading him by two points. Suther land shows the effect of having a weak defence In front of him and dropped to fifth place. The averages: Goals. Hart . 132 Jason .t 174 Lincoln ,15J Schiffer' 131 GRANT WINS FROM CHAMPION. Pell Outplayed To Reach Seml-Flnal Bracket of Singles To-day. New York, Feb. 24. Former Cham pion W. C. Grant to-day defeated T. R. Pell, holder of - the national indoor lawn te.nnls championship, in the third round of the singles on the courts of the Seventh Regiment armors'- Grant outplayed Pell and won, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2.

Touchard, de feated Dean Mathey, 8-6 and 6-3, against the good placing of the Prince ton interscholastic champion. Slow progress was made in doubles. I. C. Wright, of Boston, was paired with T. R.

N AVALS. Fast Game Expected Saturday Night at Boys'- Club. The Naval Reserves have finally dedded to ., give the crack Clinton quintet a game, which is to be played Saturday night at the Boys' club at 8 o'clock sharp. It was' very difficult work for Manager Trisch of the Clin tons to secure a game with the Naval Reserves, who for some unknown rea son refused to give the Clintons a game. This game ought to be a corking good one as both of these teams are. very fast, and have been playing great ball, making very good records. Since the game will be start ed exactly at 8 o'clock the lights will not go out and spoil the game. This happened at the Clinton and Ligh.t Guard game, thereby giving a chance for protesting. The admission for the game will be free and it can ho safely' said that anyone coming after 8 o'clock will be Unable to see the game, on account of the largeness of the crowd, for there is always an enormously large crowd present at tho games at the Boys' club. The out come of the game will be of grat in terest, especially to the Light Guard, who have not been able to secure a game with the Navals. The Clintons and the Navals are evenly matched, and the outcome of the game is very uncertain. BONEYARDS BEATEN New Haven Polo Quintet is Easy Prey for Jean's League Leaders.

Baseball comes prominently into the limelight this week. To-morrow the National and American leagues hold their schedule meetings in New York, and at the end of the week the ball players of many major league teams will be packing their grips prepara tory for departure for southern train ing grounds. Before another week passes a majority of tho clubs will have begun active practice for the coming season. Little of moment aside from the adoption of the schedules is slated to happen at the big pow-wow in New York, for there is really no expectation that' President Pulllam will make a serious issue of the alleged blacklist of the National Association of Minor Leagues. llis threatened resignation of the presidency Is not receiving se rious consideration. New Britain, Feb. 24. The New Brit ain polo team had little difficulty in disposing of the New Haven five to night, the final score being six to one,, The locals caged seven goals but lost one on fouls.

Clinton is the latest convert to car pet bowling. More than that the la dies' have the honor of Introducing the game to tho town on tno shores of the sound. The game promises to become even more popular In small places than It Is In the larger cities. The reason being that amusements are not so num emus in small towns and anything new and good In the way of sport Is rapidly taken up. The small cost of introduc ing the game and the reason that It can be played on any regular carpeted hall floor Is two of the principal rea ,sons that commend carpet bowling to the fraternal organizations.

The Thomas automobile, America's only entry In the great International race, pushing its way foot by foot through snowdrifts ten to twelve feet deep In northern Indiana, literally blazed the way for all its competitors. The story of the run will go down in automobile history as one of the weirdest performances ever exacted of gasoline engines, gears and rubber tires. When not only the roads, but even the landmarks, were swept out of sight by the blizzard that raged nearly two days, Hoosler farmers came to the aid of the driver of the Thomas car, Mon tague Roberts, and his companion, George Schuster. Husky Indianians shoveled a way ahead of the car, Rob erts (and Schuster) taking part in the work with them, leaving the tusk at Intervals to go back to the car and send it a few feet farther on its way to Paris, via Alaska and Siberia. Thug fourteen miles were coveroH in thir teen hours. What a motor car rec ord! It will be recounted as one of the most remarkable racing perform ances when the owners of flying ma chines are sending challenges to Mars. It was of course comparatively easy for. the other cars to follow the Amer ican entry after the path was mado. The Thomas car was unlike the prai rie schooner of the forties, which, with its steel bows for canvas covers, it sug gests. , Illustrative of an old story of cour age and progress, it was fhe American driver that found a path through the "trackless desert," and the foreigner that followed., .. It must have been some such thought as this that in spired the farmers who helped Rob erts and Schuster through, for. they constantly cheered the Thomas men with exclamations of "Go It, Amerlky! Don't let the furriners beat ye!" ' All along that terrible drive the most friendly spirit was evinced, con trary to the impression spread by the Joke artist that the farmer and the au tomobile are natural enemies. Many exciting chapters will be made in the story of the run to Paris, but none more picturesque than that, of the Thomas car's trip through north ern Indiana. - New Orleans, Feb. 24. Jockey Mc Lain was suspended for the remainder of the season at City Park to-day for his ride on Waterway, the favorite in the steeplechase. McLain apparently deliberately, jumped off his mount .at the first hurdle.

Offers Colored Fighter $5,000; Win, i ' Lose or Draw Fight Not Over Tweiit-y-flvc Rounds. , London, Feb., 24.-Tommy BtrfTts.'tho ' heavyweight , champion' and Jack. Johnson, the negro heavyweight, may meet In this country to battle for the championship within the next few months. A syndicate of British sports men have offered a purse for a fight between Burns' and' Johnson, to take -place in England. They have placed a deposit of $2,000 with Messrs. Spalding, and Burns, having accepted their terms has deposited a similar sum as' a for feit. The inducements offered to Buriis to meet Johnson arc not disclosed, but the syndicate offers Johnson $3,000 win, lose or draw. Tho fight is to occur (before June' 10, anf Burns insists on a sixteen-foot ring. He is also agreeable, to the sug- gestlon that James J. .Jeffries' act as referee. He appears quite elated at the opportunity thus afforded him of meeting Johnson, and says that tha terms are far better than any ever sug gested In Anerica. He cannot see how Johnson can refuse them if he really wants to fight. Burns would like it to bo a fight to a finish but it is not likely that the authorities would allow any contest go ing over twenty or twenty-five rounds. If a. fight Is arranged it is expected that it will be at Newcastle or one ot the Lancashire cities where a big crowd of. spectators would be a cer tainty, 1 Burns is' taking things quietly at present, doing just enough work to keep him in condition. He will remain at Hamp'stead until March 12. when he will go to Dublin for his fight on St. Patrick's day with Jem Roche. He Is very confident of his ability to defeat Johnson and thinks that Roche will not prove much more efTertive than "Gun ner" Moir or Jack Palmer. ; Squashes. Kimball 142 139 137 - 438; C.
