Meriden here to-night. -
Eddie Sullivan's team in Portland
has Campbell, Spencer, McKay, Cam
eron and Kennoy.
The Waterbury team journeys over
the hills to Meriden to-morrow vght,
and what a joke it would be , 1 we
took "both "games. '
Pawtucket' Jias,' Higglns, Whatmo
and Coyle oii the rush line, with Mor
rison at center, Conway at halfback
and John Smith in goal.
Plymouth has a very strong team in
Cunningham. Lincoln, Miller, Janelle
and Mullen, a strong bidder for the
championship if Upton holds them to
gether. Tarrant and Walton worked hard to
keep the ball on Bath's ground, while
the defense of Wiley and Furbush
"was of a high standard, Wiley mak
ing a goal from the farther end of the
rink. Rockland Star.
Every person that goes to the rink
to-night should urge the local players
on in every way. One or two of them
were quite nervous Wednesday even
ing and- this was caused as much as
anything by the hisses which , were
used so unnecessarily. - Give the boys
a cheer now and then' and it will make
all the difference in the world.
Fred Jean, the big center of the lo
cal team. Is a totally different fellow
from what many believed. When he
played with Meriden h was thought
by many to be a rough, -ungentlemanly
chap who Would stop at nothing to
win the game. That is not the case,
however, for he Is one of the most
gentlemanly players in the circuit and
educated as well.
Plymouth's polo season opened
(Wednesday Jn a most auspicious man
ner. There were nearly 000 people In
attendance, and the home team start
ed its career by shutting out Pawtuck
et 5 to 0. It was the first game either
team had played, and under these cir
cumstances the game may be consul
ered very satisfactory. Plymouth had
decidedly the best of It all through,
and outplayed its opponents at every
As the teams look now. .New Haven
is a five to one winner. Evidently that
team was not pruned enough, .but
would not be fair, to. the management
to assault the make-up again. Man
ager Canavan deserves what he has
secured. Meriden and Hartford come
- next in line with -the chances In favor
of the former -city,- Springfield, comes
next and our own city brings up the
rear. A-bad beginning makes a tfbod
ending, eo they- say and, we hope it
la so. "' ' - -'
Meriden makes her first appearance
here to-night and the local polo fans
" Will be "sure of a red hot contest.' It
la tnn pir v in tha season for the Tuns
t get out their hammers on the make
up of the local team. Why not wait
and, give 'the. members of the team a
chance to get into the game. They
haore had virtually no practice to-

Frank Warner of Meriden, who Is
nder- contract with Waterbury, has
ot yet made his appearance in this.
and the fans and the local man
agement;are at a; loss to know what:
is the reason; Manager Parsons has"
been to Meriden several times to get
the player to come over with him but
he has failed each time. It is said
that the last time' that Parsons went
after .him Warner promised to' come
right-over that day. Manager Par
sons decided to wait for him but when
he went to Warner's store to get him,
he was informed that the player had
gone to, New York.- It is said that
Warner does not want to start "in
to play until he finds some one. to, take
(' his place in the store,, r Probably he
will be;.here later. ' '' ' - : ' .; '

cago Club to Be Organized 3harley
McKeever Arrives Home From Lon
don. Edward McBride, the Buffalo ref
eree, pauses in his regular occupation
of making bad decisions to throw some
mud at the Gans-McGovern match. He
presents a novel reason for believing
that the. contest will not be honestly
fought. Here it is:
"Sam Harris, manager or MeGovern,
and Al.Herford, manager of Gans, are
old time friends, and the financial
part of it will never be given out to
the public. Herford Is a Hebrew,
Harris is a Hebrew, and Lou House
man, manager of Tattersall's club in
Chicago, where the fight will take
place, Is a Hebrew, and there are
many who claim that the match is al
ready cooked up. Not one of the
three mentioned, however, has ever
been accused of crookedness, but it
certainly looks suspicious to match
Gans and MeGovern, once virtually
sparring partners, when a man like
Erne, the champion of the world, is
ready and willing to fight MeGovern
for that title. At that. Erne believes
that Gans will win out. I don't, for
Harris knows very well what he is
doing when he makes matches for Mr
MeGovern of Brooklyn."
The phenomenal referee fails to add
that MeGovern is an Irishman, Gans
a negro and Slier, who will referee, an
Englishman. The spectators, and
there will be many thousands, will in
clude all nationalities.
It was left for the Infantile Intellect
of Edward McBride to attempt to foist
the intolerable, rubbish above quoted
on the sporting public. Here is Terry
MeGovern, ) man who has fought in
a manner to leave not a shadow of ba
sis for suspicion, attacked by this dod-
derincr Buffalonian on the ground of
racial prejudice! Because McGovern's
manager is a Hebrew, the fighter,
therefore, must be dishonest. The at
tack Is all the more disgraceful because
McBride does not believe what ' he
writes. ' He does it out of revenge be
cause Buffalo's exploded phenomenon.
Frank Erne, was rejected by Harris
in favor of Gans'. There was sound
business reasons for taking on Gans.
Erne was so ignominiously beaten bv
MeGovern that few, except a few Buf
falo people, would care to see them In
another bout. Gans and MeGovern
have never met. Despite Erne's de
cision over Gans. It is a well known
fact that up to the time the Buffalo
man batted Gans in the eye. the ne
gro had all the better of the fight.
Harris, shrewd manager, takes on the
hardest game, knowing that -It will
yield the best financial results.
trans ana MeGovern never were
sparring partners. When MeGovern
trainer for Palmer fully a dozen fight-
erg preparing for various bouts used
the same training quarters as the
ehamnion. Gans was among them. He
and MeGovern had n set to one day.
and Gans claims to have had the best
ot the argument.

' Following the decision of the Meri
den High school authorities not to al
low Waterbury High school to play
any ringers in "the final championship
game at Yale field next ' Saturday
morning in the Connecticut Intersehol
astlc league, Manager Hal Bralriard,
of the local eleven, went to New Ha
ven this morning and consulted with
the advisory board of athletics at' Yale.
Manager B. "VV Hixon of the Yale uni
versity foot ball team, assured Mana
ger Brainard tnat tne ruies or tne
league. would be strictly enforce ana
Waterbury would have to play a le
gitimate team or the game would be
declared forfeited to Meriden.Manager
bTixon extended an invitation to the
whole Meriden team to remain in New
Haven Saturday afternoon and wit
ness the Yale-Indian game free of ex
pense. The offer was accepted and
the Meriden boys will witness this im
portant foot ball battle. Tickets for
the game Saturday morning were
placed on sale yesterday afternoon.
That Meriden does not intend to be
hoodwinked by Waterbury Saturday is
apparent from action taken to-day.
Besides Manager Brainard going to
New Haven, another man was sent to
Waterbury with, instructions to look
up ths pedigree of all the Waterbury
players and ascertain how many of
them are attending school. Particular
Investigation was to be made concern
ing one young man about 20 years old,
who is said to be taking an elaborate
study of music and ' gymnastics, and
who, it is alleged, attends school only
one period each day.- The Meriden
man sent to investigate is captain J.
J. Landrlgan, of the Meriden police
department, and he went under unof
ficial directions' from Mayor E. E.
West, whose son is quarterback of the
Meriden eleven. It is a pretty certain
thing that if the Meriden High school
authorities would allow ringers to ue
played Merfden could wipe up the face
of the earth with any sciiooi team in
Connecticut. The case of Arthur.But
ler is an example. He only left school
October 10, and would willingly have
attended school one period each day if
he had been allowed to remain on the
team, but Captain Hyatt refused to
allow him to play -unless he continued
as a regular pupil at the school. Meri
den Journal.
Fred Bauby Is gaining a reputation
all over the country as a great foot
ball player. Before the college sea
son opened, he received several fine
offers from different Institutions of
learning to play on tbelf elevens. This
week he received a telegram from
Troy, N. Y., asking him to play with
the Mlllerton eleven of that place to
day, and accordingly Fred left for
that place yesterday This is the
hardest game Mlllerton plays this
year and she wanted to have the
strongest eleven possible in the field.
Cambridge, Nov .9. -The long-feared
inevitable slump has visited the Har
vard university elevenat last, foretold
by Wednesday's listless playing. -A
practice period yesterday of forty min
utes of the poorest, most discouraging
play seen on Soldiers' field this season,
enabled the 'varsity to score but once
on a fluke. The second eleven h(ld the
"varsity once for 'downs, threatened
their line continually and nearly
scored by a close try for goal from the
Philadelphia, Noy 9. The Pennsyl
vania team will enter the game with
Lafaye on Saturday in rather poor
snape. Tbe Harvard game left eight
of the regulars in' an injured condi
tion, and though all of them, with the
execptlon of three, are to be In the
game, their injuries will probably pre
vent them from playing up to form.
McCloskey, Graves -and Hare are the
three who may nof be well enough to
play against Lafayete. Captain Hare
was out yesterday, and though limping
badly he said that he felt well and
hoped to get into the game. Graves's
knee was so bad that he could not prac
tice. Tale will Insist on thirty-minute
halves in the. game with the Carlisle
Indians at New Haven to-morrow. As
the red men are noted for their en
durance, Yale may find that her hands
are quite full because of this point. If
Hale is unable to play on the New
Haven eleven there may be trouble,
as he 13 almost the only back capable
of making an impression on the In

hitherto been hidden.
Ithaca, Nov 9. Cornell now has two
Important contests ahead before she
closes the season, and Is making every
preparation to win both of thesa games.
On the 17th she meets Lafayette, and
on Thanksgiving day the University
of Pennsylvania. Trainer Moakley
and the coaches realize that the La
fayette game wUl be a hard one, and
so Cornell will run no chances of being
overtrained for that, contest. Accord
ingly the, work has been rather light
for this week, and 'yesterday the men
lined up for a hard seijfcumage game
for the first time since the Princeton
game. The field was very slippery.
Easton, Nov 9. Admirers of .the La
fayette football team were downcast
last night when It. was ascertained that
an accident to Half Back Launt, which
occurred yesterday afternoon' and .was
thought to be. slight, is Of a more seri
ous nature and Will probably throw
him out of the game for the rest of
the season. His Jaw 'was broken by
collision, and-It will ; be necessary to
train in another man for, his position.
Pressure is being brought to bear on
Slatterly, who has (juit football; to
come to the' rescue so that Lafayette
may be able to' put up' a. good game
against Pennsylvania on Saturday.
New York, Nov 9. The regular prac

who played against Princeton to ap

New Haven, Nov 9. Johnson, the
former pitcher of the Connecticut base

Yale football practice yesterday after

longest of which netted the second
