WATERBURY EVENTNG DEMOCRAT.! "TH I) R SiAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1900.
7 PSI DQE HIS, Billy ; Murray Drops Out of Springfield the Last Momjsnt. Ho Had Secured Neither Rink nor flayers Mr Aufort of New Haven Gets "the Franchise 'ahd .Has -Hi? i Team Engaged The Southeastern League Came Vnder the National' Agreement Last Night Jean Jacques Is in Fortland To-day Afer the Maine League Other Iolo Notes. All the teams in the National league ' have now been elmpleted, with the exception of Watejburj-. Another of Doe's schemes hasAieeii nipped in the bud also, and it. is too bad that" Billy Murray of I'rovioenee allowed himself to be party to the scheme to disrupt . this league, but that is what -it looks like. Murray allowed the other mag nates in this league to believe that he was making herculean efforts to get a team in Springfield. As a matter ofi fact, he was doing nothing in that re spect. He had not engaged the rink nor had he engaged any players, at least that. is the report that was sent to this city, und in fact to every city in the league. He probably conceived the idea or Doe probably furnished the conception, that if Springfield was not in- the league at the last minute the other teams would have to drop out, .. as the schedule would bp. broken. "When the managers learned of this fact. Mr Aufort of New Haven was at once consulted, and he journeyed to Springfield. As a consequence. Springfield has a rink and a full team and is all ready for business. Man ager Farsons will arrive in Watcrlmry to-day, and he will have a team witli him for sure, and when the ball opens Monday Watorhnry will be in the swim with the- rest. . Tiro Southeastern league, at the meeting held in Boston Inst night, vot ed to come in under the National agree ment. Jean Jacques has gone on "to Tcrtland to confer with the. -Maine league and ftl all probability' that league will also come under the agree ment. This will Tie a protection to players and managers alike. After this agreement" is made, it is very like ly that if Poe asks for forgiveness from tltft National league managers lie may get it. They are a forgiving sort of a crowd, rind they "wouldn't like to prevent Doe from earning his bread and butter.. Daly is another -man that may be given" a taste of good man ners. TOMMY HOLDERNESS SIGNED. The Fopular Little Halfback Will Be a Member of the Watorbury Team. It will be good novs to the ma jority of the fans in Waterbury to know that Tommy Holderness will be a member of the team this season. He was always a favonte here and would still be on the team had it not been for Doe displacing him for Bar ney Doherty.- He will be a welcome addition to the .twtm. Manager Par sons telegraphed this afternoon that he had signed him and that he would come" on at once. : - , Mul Smith is to play halfback on LeycTon's Gardiner, Me, team. Paul Gardner has been signed as . halfback for the Brockton .team. Fred Lincoln. Cunningham and Holderness have left to join their teams. Billy Leydon's team will be the Tigers of the Maine league. The colors are orange and black. According to a Brockton paper, Bil-, ly xveongfi has been appointed a rer eree.in the Southern New England. Bill hasn't heard anything official as yet. Those who will play on the Gardi ner team are: Spencer and Dawson," rushers; Leyden, center and captain Smith, halfback: Sword, goal; Phillips, substitute. Kennebec.

Brockton Times. At the -meeting-of the National po lo league held in Hartford, the Spring field franchiset ,-wasJ turned over to William Aufort. who managed the New Haven team last season. Wil liam H. Murray, who had intended to transfer his rrovidenco club' to the Massachusetts city, declined to take a chance with a club composed of the players awarded him by the league. Mr Murray was anxious to locate in Springfield and undoubtedly would have done so had he been able to se cure "Dickie"' Tierce and "Kid" Con way for the team. These two play ers, however, did not cnre to go there and as Murray thought the prospects were poor without them, he informed the league that he would retire. In order to keep the league intact the franchise was awarded to Mr Aufort and he has since been hustling to get together a club that will give the peo ple in the Massachusetts city good polo. Immediately after the close of the meeting he started to sign players for his club and thus far he has secured Eddie Mooney. BUI Whiting. Gavitt and Bill Heffernnn. Mr Aufort tried to sign Frank Wodtko. but the Dutch man stated that ho" would not piny this season.' He also looked up Hipson, but was informed that the runaway rusher had gone to Lewiston to join Fred Doe's club. Last night Mr Au fort was in this city for. the purpose of securing Billy Curtis, a Fawtncket youngster, who was highly recommend ed to him by several of the stars. Cur tis was made a good offer to play in Springfield, but as he has partially made up his mind to nrctt the game for good, he did not give Mr Aufort a defi nite answer. Curtis is a- fast man and his friends in Ibis city are of the opin ion that he could make good in the big league if be decides to again get into the harness. He will let Mr Au fort know of his decision within a few days. There is"no doubt. Mr Aufort says, but what the league will go through the season intact as at pres ent constituted. For his Springfield team lie has good backing by individ uals and the league has also agreed to stand behind him providing the game should not prove to.be, ft paying venture there. Springfield has the reputation of being one of the best po lo cities in New England, however, and with a good team there is4ittlo fear of the other magnates being compelled to go down in their pockets to keep the club on its feet. Fawtncket Times. ON THE GRIDIRON, Several Games Flayed But' Practice Was the General Issue. Manager Dunphy. of the St Thomas Cadets' foot ball eleven, .is incensed at some of the statements in the affi le in last evening's Democrat m re gard to the attempts to arrange, a game between his eleven and the Elms In justice to himself as manager, as well as to the eleven, he denies the veracity of the statement that Manager Cost, grove of the Elms is not to be blamed. He says the following are the facts of the case: About a month ngo Manager cos- groye, of the Elms, had a conference with Manager "Ilunphyi of. the St Thomas Cadets: and' asked him" for -a game on Thanksgiving day... The lat ter answered in the affirmative".' ' Cos grove then said that Griswcld wanted him to arrange a game for that day. and he (Cosgrove) asked dunphy it lie would be willing to give ' Gviswold 33 1-3 per cent of the gate receipts on that day, or $r0. Manager Dun phy replied no. 1 bat he would give no more than $'-. Cosgrove said no would see Griswold about it. About ten days later he saw Man ager Dunphy again. This time he stat eVl he didn't want a. game on Thanks giving, but would like' one. onrlier in the season. So Manager Dunphy named November IS and he agreed to it. A week ago last Tuesday he saw Dunphy for tlie third! time. Again lie cancelled the game on the date. No vember 18. on which they had agreed to play and again expressed a wish of playing early as he didn't know whether the team would hold together long or 'not; but a. meeting Whs; tor be held that night to decide whether the team should be continued or not. Man ager Dunphy said he would see him later. OuS Thursday night of the same week .they met again. Manager Dun phy said he could give, the Elms a game on October 25, as the game which they were to play with the. Merrimaes on that day" was cancelled. Further more he would'give them ?25 to play. He thought this was very reasonable, as the Elms had journeyed to Union ville for 915. barely enough to pay expenses. Manager Cosgrove feplied that his team wouldn't play that Sun day for $50," as the players weren't in proper condition. A short while after wards Manager Cosgrove ' again saw Manager - Dunphy . and - asked for a game on Novejnhor ll5Ianager "Dun phy refused' as his team was-to play in Ansonia on that .-dayl Manager Cosgrove then said that it looked, like iiq game between the two elevens this year, and Manager Dunphy co;nciuea in this opinion. . x " Manager" Dtmp'iy says" that" "he has givn the Elnjs plenty of opportunity to :arrange a game with'.liim and that lie. does-not no.w.;jntend 'JaiHsarra.nge his'- '- schedule.

The Mer rimacs are confident of defeating their opponents again, as they did a few Sundays ago, but this time so decis ively that there can be no dispute. To morrow night they will line up against the strong Union City eleven for a prac tice game. ' ' "' i ; ., ; ' Ithaca, Nov 1. Cornell's chances of besting Princeton in the coming con test on Saturday next have materially decreased now .that it is learned that Alexander will not be able to play In the' game. Alexander's injury is more serious than was at first expected, and the big right tackle will not be allow ed to don his uniform on that day. The secret practice has continued, and the gates were kept so close that not even any of the students were allow ed io witness the practice. Philadelphia, Nov 1. Pennsylvania's athletic committee has decided to play McCracken against Harvard. This positive statement was made last night as the team left for Boston. The feeling here is that Harvard's query about McCracken is unnecessary-' in view of the fact ' that last: fall the Harvard committee asked Pennsyl vania's committee whether it con sidered McCracken a three-year or a four-year footballer. Pennsylvania, replied that he was then playing his third year upon 'the team and Har vard answered that that reply was altogether satisfactory. The four year rule cannot properly be brought into the question because Harvard had agreed that the "JO interpretation should rule. rrinceton. Nov 1. Princeton's under graduates turned out in a body yester day afternoon to watch the Tigeis at work and incidentally to practice songs and cheers for the coining contest with Cornell. And what they saw amply repaid them for the inconvenience which they experienced on account of the cutting north wind. ..which swept down the field, for Princeton's 'Var sity put up an article of football the equal of which has not been seen here this year. In the last twelve minutes of phiy the representatives of the Orange and Black rolled up 22 points against the strongest scrub that could be picked and -four touchdowns are included jn that score. The new stands are now completed. They will seat. 13.000 persons and the management expects that a big" crowd ' will he on them next Saturday. Cambridge: Nov 1. Harvard had a varied and encouraging jiracUce yes terday afternoon. There was .n short running signal practice for tlie backs, a sharp line-up for the linemen in which they were put opposite a ma chine to test them as to slowness, con siderable practice in receiving the kick oft" and getting the hall lor punt ing, and finally a fifteen minute game to practice the 'Varsity on offence. In the irame the 'Varsity scored four touchdowns on long-end runs by Gierasli, Devons and Putner. Sawin and Gierasli were in the game. Lee lihived through it, and Ellis did sonic snappy work in the signal practice. So all of Harvard's cripples will lie in shape to play on Saturday. Bowditch again displaced Campbell at left end. Eaton played at left tackle all through. Roberts had first choice at center and Barnard at right guard. To-morrow's practice will be the last before the game on Saturday. GAMES PLAYED YESTERDAY.

The . veteran track men were most agreeably surprised.

' Jim Jeffries is Trying, to Call Bob Fitzsimmons "; It Is Regarded as One of the Big Pel- low's Bluffs Lou Housman Criti cises One of , the Chicago Clubs and Fighters Patsy Sweeney and Andy Watson 'Fight a Twenty Round Draw Some. More Foints on) the Boxers. James. J. Jeffries knows all about the- uneasiness of '.the head that wears crown. He wears the pugilistic crown, but there are thorns in 'it. While e assumes a contented and jovial air tie realizes that a maioritv of the nel sons who admire boxing are of the I ODlll otl that n clisrbt flnW mo, -a thu '.lampion's title. He knows that when the ancient gladiator came forward for 'a second fight with Jeffries, and one week from the time the old chap had capsized Sharkey," the cham pion sidestepped. Jeffries also knows that it was his own proposition to fight Fitzsimmons before the Horton law went out of ex- stence, and nil.. talk of a battle there- fter was idle talk, .feffrios. is now trying to convince the public that Fitz- tmmons was at fault. Fitz .will fight again." said Jef fries in a recent interview. "He re- M-ed once before, you remember; told ow ho had sworn to his wife that he would never fight again and a lot more rot of that kind. T-Iio public would never have him as a theatrical star, nd they wov't have him -now. As soon as lie satisfies himself of this fact, I think ho will lie willing enough o light -again. He-is going around from barroom to barroom boasting nd bragging about how easily . he can whip me. I want to see him under take it. I gave him a licking once hat he didn't forget for a year. I would just like to get another chance t. him, and if I do, I will give him a thumping that he will never -forget. to the day of his death." "How is your lame arm?" the boil- crmnker was asked. I haven't any lame arm," he re- ponded. "The arm that was lame is all lisrht now. If I get a chance to tackle Fitz he will swear to it after ntn tlirouarh with him. If he won t fight me. I think Gus Ruhlin is entitled to tlie next, chance, don't you?" "Ruhlin is a big, strong, powerful fellow, and a decent one. He gave me a good fight in California, and his career has been honest and straight forward, and, as he has never been engaged in any faking that I know of, I think he is entitled to more consider ation at my hands than any other man ii tlie rin!r to-dnv. barring b ltzsim- mons. Who conquered him, and whom I defeated with ease, and whom I desire to defeat again, just to tiow the public that I am in reality the champion of the world." It can be readily seen that Jeffries ealizes the public does not regard him as the real champion, end he hopes to change that view by loud talk. . It, is not improbable that Jeffries can tent Fitzsimmons as thoroughly as he claims, but what puzzles the public the fact that when the old man stood ready fo fight! in Madison Square Garden on tlie nigtvt of August 31. the last day of Horton law grace, Jeffries declined to toe the mark LOU HOUSEMAN'S STORY. Lou Houseman writes the following story about one of the scraps in Chi cago: "Tlie uisgracerm row ensuing on the decision of Referee Fallon at the Star theater shows the utter lack of discipline exercised by managers of clubs in America. Such a tiling never would have been permitted in an in stitution like the National club of Lou don. I understand that Harry, Forbes, tlie brother of one of the principals in the bout which precipitated the riot in embryo, has been barred out or the club quarters. A few such steps will undoubtedly have the proper stay ing effects on club ruffianism. Ihe game is in a bad enough way without further smirching it from within. Manager Carroll may have erred in permitting Fallon to referee the bout. Patsy, who should know as much about the art of refereeing as any one, was hardly in shape to pass judgment on any sort of contest Friday night. His decision of a draw was a bad one. This, however, did not justify Forbes in his assault on the referee. The mat ter might, have been adjusted by a reversal of the decision at the-hands of the club management. In. the final between Sullivan and Yanger there was not nough margin either way to warrant a verdict other than a draw. Sullivan did most of the forcing, but this, as I have always maintained, does not entitle a boxer to any con sideration. Tommy flyan has won most of his battles Ty making his op ponent do the forcing, and then win ning with counters or tetntlng ms vis a-vie ,into bumping , up against his (Ryan's)- own extended left. Sullivan was somewhat of a disappointment. His showing against Yanger was hard ly as good as when he met' Buddy Rvan;'.- His left was slow ana wtta, while., his right appears to lack ail distance judgment. That Sullivan should have won over ueorge Dixon demonstrates just how . far "Little Chocolate" has gone back. Tlie Dixon who whipped Cal McCarthy, Tommy White, and Eddie Santry . could have disposed of a couple of Sullivans one after tlnvbther in the same ring. The more I see of the present day feather weights the greater my admiration grows for the wonderful little boxer from Boston. :xanger may some uay make a. champion, but if-he does he will have to go forward approximate ly, as fast as Dixbh has gone back. One lone, . straight left-handed punch was all that Yanger was able to land on his re-topped adversary. The lit tle fellow, however, excelled at short arm work, and in roughing it with Sullivan he showed that he has lots of strength -and knows how to husband It. :. ...f . :.-.'. - ,. ,..-,!; .

Both men went right tit it from the tap of the bell and it was a slap-bang affair, with little advnntage to either for the first two rounds.

Both tnen were in good shape when the sixth round started and tliey fought hard throughout that round and the seventh, In a mix-up in the eighth , Sweeney cut Watsons eye open with a heavy right. For the next two rounds Sweeney .had just a shade the best of the work, but Watson cut loose in the eleventh and with two quick lefts on the jaw he had the local man groggs'. Sweeney only saved himself by clinching and it was all that the referee could do to separate the pair. Both men were tired and their work up to the sixteenth when they began to slug again, exchanging punch for punch .all over the ring. Sweeney was cautioned twice in this round for hit ting, low. There .was no let-up and with both men on their feet at the end of the twentieth round, the referee declared the bout a draw. OFFER TO SHARKEY.

'-:-'- ;-.'.- Prices; ; -; i -. . . - .''I spent several weeks last summer in a quaint, delightful little moun tain village in South Carolina," said an old clubman the other, evening, re lates the New Orleans Times-Democrat, "and I found, a rule in force there which could .be adopted with advantage at numerous other locali ties. I went to the place" by mere chance, and one of the first things that impressed me after my arrival was the total absence of the extor tion ' one usually encounters at even the smallest resorts. Everything was amazingly good and reasonable, and I marveled how the natives had been kept unspoiled. One afternoon during the first week of my' stay I found out I was sitting on the porch of the lit tle hotel when a buggy drove up and a well-dressed man descended. He was a new arrival, who had been tak ing a ride in the mountains. 'What do I owe you?' he asked of the coun tryman who drove the rig. 'Oh, I reckon a dollar's enough,', drawled the other. 'Pshaw!' exclaimed the stran ger, 'it's worth more' than' that, Here's a two-dollar bill.' "The money was about to change hands when a broad-shouldered chap from Louisville, who had been staying at tne notel all summer, tumped up from a chair at my side and stepped between the -pair. 'Hoid on!' he said, firmly. 'We can't allow that. Give the driver what he oskS but no more. 'Well, I don't see that; this is any of your business, drawled ' the new comer, in great surprise. 'I propose to make it my business,' retorted the Louisville man. 'Give him a dollar and let" him go.' 'I'll be hanged ife I will,' said the stranger, getting red. 'I'll pay him what I blamed please.' Then you'll have me to lick,' said the Kentuckian, calnily,. and peeled off his coat. The other man took a look at his torso and weakened. 'Oh, well,' he said, 'it isn't worth" fighting about, and with that he tossed the country man a dollar and strode inside. 'We have to do this in self-defense,' said the Louisville man, apologetically, as he resumed his seat. 'A few of us discovered this resort, and now we're trying to keep it uncontaminated. About all the pleasant loafing-places in Europe and America have been spoiled by confounded idiots who have more money than brains and insist on overpaying for everything they get. The consequence is that they mill prices to such an extent that fellows of moderate means like myself can't afford to take a vacation, and some of us old boarders have quietly or ganized a protective league to hold things down to a reasonable level. We've had to lick two New Y'orkers and a dude from Philadelphia, but al together the scheme has worked first- rate.' I applied for membership im mediately, and never enjoyed a visit more in my life. There ought to be branch leagues a'l over the country."
