WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1900
WflTERBURY BEAT HARTFORD - . 4 Johnny Griffin Was on the Local Bush Line. The Topular Rusher Was Given a t. Big Ovation and riayed Great Polo ' Hartford Was Xever In the Hunt New Haven Has It Easy With Mer iden Echoes from the. .Various Kinks. 'Ttichard is himself again." John nie G rutin is oiiCe more a member of the Waterbury team and marked his entry by xmtung up the game of his life. Waterbury needed a player wiw as not i?o phenomenal as lie was uLiiiiuilous, and ;ueh an one is Griiliu. He was everywhere, conscientiously trying to land his team a winner. It was rumored around the hull be fore the game that Orihin would play and as the players tiled onto the sur face the utmost suspense prevailed until he appeared, and then there was started a series of cheers and stamping as is produced ouiy at a polo game. The e.viiluil ion was taken up by "('ar um City" and watied around the hall until every one seemed to be cheering except the Hartford players. The game started off in a rush and ::fter .some line playing on both sides Tommy Holderne.-s planted the sphere l.fhiutf Sharkie in 1 About this time Conor's skates broke and he bad t retire from the liner, and to save time Dnhcrty iuie-.itionally put the ball outside the surface, for whieldie received a merited rebuke from the ref eree. Jean scored the second goal for Wa terbury in 4 and Wodtke dupli cated his trick for Hartford in MOT. This ended the period and the fans v.cre in a happy frame of mind. The see. :;d perim! was llriiiiiiVs pe ril d. for lie placed two goals fur his team in t-itick succession at the op iu ing. Jtan got two also and Paly one. and so it ended, Waterbury 7, Hartford 1. Tiie last-period showed a desperate nit; nipt to score on the part of Hart ford, but io iin avail. Time and again did the Hartford rushers bring the ball down ouiy to meet an opposing player capable of breaking up their little game. and. iliis wonderful defense work on the part of Jean and Holder lioss saved Vox many a well directed shot. During this period Jean scored twice and Schotipld once. It was a decidedly interesting fame and worked the fans up to the great est frenzy. Daly. Griffin and Jean .ingglcl, passed and drove with beau tiful precision, and the blacking of IToldernf'Ss was he.nrlhreakintr to the 'Indians. Vox at goal played the game as it should be. never leaving his goal without just cause. For the Hartford the wholf team worked hard io win. but they were pimply "up nirainst it."

Harris Starkie had his troubles last night and he probably wished he was ou the other side of the house before 'the game was half over.

Ho plays centeiv breaks up the plays, takes the ball when he wants it and just to keep his hand in hammers behind' the netting occasionally. With such work as was done last night in future games and the fans who have been holding back from the games will wander back to the fold again. Look out for Waterbury you pennant seekers. The Maine league magnates have now completed a schedule up to March 30, the end of the season. If the writers in the Nutmeg state have their way the teams will never go that far. Pawtucket Times. Johnny Griffin was a whole team in himself last night and the way he hustled around the tloor made the fans open their eyes in wonder and caused them to ask the question why was he released from Hartford. According to tha Portland Argus the fans there are satisfied with the men who have taken the places of Paly and Fox and they dou"t care if the two never come back. Pawtucket Times. That old story of the fox. Tim Mnrnane writes that this is Tom Cotter's eighteenth year as a polo player. Tom says that tli-e figures are correct, but he has always guarded tiie fact as a family secret, and Mur ium e must owe him a grudge. That must have made Tom Cotter f el blue last night lo see the way Griffin broke up ail of Wodlke's plays. It gave conlideiice to the team too to see Griffin once more in harness and the fans were especially pleased. For the Lewistons Janelle, cover, seined to ! e the favorite witli the spec tators. There is no getting around it. Janelle is a crack-a-jack; lie is an easy, graceful player that fools 'em every time. He was loudly chered. Lewis ton Sun. Tommy Holderness made his lirst goal for the AVaterbury team last niirlit. lie has made one other goal this season, but that was placed in the enemy's cage by accident. Tommy is all right and will make his mark this season. In getting Janelle at halfback in place of Holderness we're not sure but what Sammy Fpton of Plymouth is a winner on the deal. Brockton En terprise. Yes. but Janelle didn't stick any more than the "Kangaroo." Paw tucket Times. The coaching of Jean last night was a revelation to many of the fans. There was no scolding or insulting words to urge a player on or condemn him for mistakes. It was quietly and gentlemanly done and brought forth good results. In tiie opinion of Hartford enthusi asts Waterbury could strengthen by replacing Holderness with Harry Way, who played halfback for Manchester last season. Hartford Post. Not for a minute. Tommy Holderness is worth a lot of Hai ry "Ways." and asks no odds of any of the halfbacks in the league. GOOD BASKET BALL. Strong Xew Britain Team Coming Here Thanksgiving. The Xew Britain professional team is booked to play here Thanksgiving night. It is two or three years since this team played in Waterbury, al though many efforts were made to get them here. This is a hard team for the Waterbury boys to buck against for the first game, but Mr Dixon has lots of confidence in his team and says that if this old team does beat them, it will be by a close margin, and they will have to work for it. The boy's are getting into line shape and by Thanksgiving will be in A 1 condition. This will be the lirst "cage" game of basket bail played here, and people who have seen this game played in some of the surrounding states say it is the most exciting and fast game. Waterworth is going to be in his old time form and with the developing of team work will play an even better game. Reeves is goinsj- to make a star guard and McPartland is already getting into team work.. Miles is working hard and keeping tip his repu tation for sliced and passing. Pews and Pixon are always in condition and can always be found at practice. The lirst amateur gamo for the city cham pionship will be Thanksgiving night, between the Clock Shop and the Xew England Watch Co. Both teams have a number of coming men and as they are about evenly matched there will be some fun. The teams so far en tered are, Clock Shop. Watch Shop, Welcome Athletic club, Brooklyn Ath letic club, Washington Athletic club, St Thomas Cadets, Boys club, Sterling club. LIST OF PATENTS II. G. Beede, Pawtucket, R. I., twist er machine; H.

Ben Jordan Is Talking Very Foolishly ' About McGovern Pedlar Palmer Is . Also Looking for Trouble Jeffries Will Not ' Fight Corbett Ruhlin Signs the Articles Several Fights Last Night Dr Ordway, the American represen tative of the National Sporting club, London, yesterday received a dispatch from Sam Harris, McGovern's man ager, which Indicates that the feather weight champion is not over anxious to go to England and meet Ben Jordan after ail. Harris says that Terry will only entertain a match with the Eng lishman provided the National club of fers a purse of So. you. He also refers to the offer .offMatchreaker Abrahams of the New Adelphi club. Harris says iiothing is known of that club in this. country, while tie National Sport ing club is well established. Ordway mailed Harris a letter, in which he said he would inform his club of his de mands. It is not likely that the Eng lish club will give McGovern that much money. When Matchmaker Bet tinsoa was ill Ibis counetry with Ped lar Palmer last year Harris promised to give tiie Xational management the preference any time Terry made up his mind to gA abroad. The club, it is understood, does not like the treat ment which Harris and McGovern has accorded Dr Ordway in the way of appointments, and it would not be sur prising if the foreign institution re scinded its offer of S3. 500 for a contest between the Brooklyn boy and Jordan and refuse to have anything to do witli McGovern. Jordan says lie is disgusted witli McGovern's actions. He declares that he traveled 3,000 miles to meet Terry, but when he ar rived in America McGovern waved him aside in favor of his theatrical en gagements. PALMER ALSO WHINING. Pedlar Palmer writes as follows: "I see lhat a purse is offered for a match between Jordan and McGovern. Now, betoi'e McGovern got into the ring he gave me his word lhat if ever he came to England ho would meet me. 1 hope that lie will keep his word, as it is my ambition before 1 give up boxing to meet McGovern again, anywhere he wishes, and 1 will put up a suitable forfeit to guarantee my appearance in the ring. As I know McGovern can box at S stone 8 pounds, 1 will meet him. at lhat weight. He lias refused to meet me at 8 stone 4 pounds. So 1 hope the other four pounds will en courage him. An answer from Mr Harris, McGovern's manager, will lead to business." Mr Palmer's reputation is now pretty well moth-eaten, and it appears he desires pugilistic oblivion, for if his English supporters were to set "Terrible Terry" polish off Pediar in a rouud they would realize how im measurably the little Englishman is outclassed. JEFFRIES ANSWERS CORBETT. Jim Jeffries said yesterday that he would have to abandon the slightest idea that he had of lighting Corbett. This is what the champion further said: "There has been too much said about that 'go' between Corbett and McCoy. 1 never was mixed up with any foul work, aud I don't care to sign with a man who has been. I wili. never meet Corbett in tiie rinj again. There was the Sharkey light, too per sons talked about that. Even my own light with him was roasted until I de feated the rest of the heavyweights. Nobody ever heard of me being mixed in any dirty game, and nobody ever will. At the same time I have got to steer clear of anything that might not look right. I would rather lose the purse in two fights I am taking on than have either of them spoken of as the Corbett-MeCoy fight was." Manager Brady said: "Jeffries will never meet Corbett. He is willing to light Ruh lin. I'itzsiuimons or Sharkey, but not Corbett." GFS RUHLIN SIGNS. Al Smith, who is the stakeholder in the matches arranged between Jim Jeffries and Gus Ruhlin and the cham pion aud Tom Sharkey, yesterday re ceived $5,000 iu forfeits from the "Ak ron Giant" and the former sailor. The money represents the deposits of $2,500 each from these two pugilists lo "bind their respective contests with tiie brawny boilermaker. Sharkey called in person on Smith during the after noon at the Gilsey house, while Billy Madden on behalf of Ruhlin sent a check by mail. Madden also inclosed a note in which lie says that he will be in town next week with his protege. It was learned on good authority that the Nonpareil A. C. of Louisville will make efforts to get both affairs. The National club of San Francisco will, it Is understood, be in lino for the bat il"S. Jeffries placed an additional $2,500 witli Smith last night. Ruhlin arrived at Mahanoy City yesterday af ternoon and signed the articles of agreement for a match with Jeffries, which had been forwarded to him and which had already been signed by Jef fries. The referee named was either Chnrley White or George Siier, and Al Smith is named as stakeholder. Ruh lin scratched out that part of the arti cles of agreement for his match with Jeffries which snvs: "The men shall be permited to tight with one hand free, each protecting himself in the break away, but they are to break at the command of the referee." and made it read that'the referee shall internret therules' '., He, selected George Siler for referee and with these changes for warded the agreement to Al Smith in New York last evening. ; WAR IN LOUISVILLE. A pugilistic war has broken out at Louisville. Manager Gray of the Southern Athletic club declares I113 club will give the bout between Dave Sullivan and Tim Callahan at the Au ditorium next Monday night, while Manager Rueke declares that he will pull off the twenty-round contest be tween "Mysterious"- Billy Smith and "Australian" Billy Edwards on the same night. Unless there is a compro mise both bouts will prove to be finan cial frosts. - -, ' , CARTER BEATS MURPHY. ' Chicago, ' Nov 17. Kid Carter of Brooklyn defeated Tim Murphy of Australia at the Star theater- last night. Murphy hit Carter hard and of ten, but the Brooklyn man had a shade on points in every round. It was a fierce, rough fight, and satisfied the crowd. - -v ; GANS W'HirS PARKER. Denver, Col, Nov' 17. George Gans of Baltimore knocked out Kid Parker of Denver in the fourth round of what was to have been a ten-round go before the Colorado Athletic club, last night. Three thousand persons saw the light. MURPHY GETS A DRAW. Torrington, Nov 17. The bout be tween Dan Murphy of Waterbury and Hary Fisher of New York, in the Union theater, last night, was declared a draw. The ten-round preliminary between Bowe and Grant was also a draw. The bout between Galway and Hogan did not come off. Jimmy Nel son refereed. ON THE GRIDIRON. Teams in Fine Fettle For the Games . To-day. Providence, Nov 17. With Captain Washburn on the sick list Brown's chances to run up a big score against Dartmouth do not seem so bright as earlier in the. week. The Harvard game was decidedly encouraging, but the practice this week has not shown much snap, and the weak points of last Saturday offer a good opportunity to Dartmouth. The team left for Han over yesterday . New Haven, Nov 17. Amid an out burst of enthusiasm that surpassed anything of file kind that lias ever hap pened at Yale, the Yale football team yesterday afternoon set out for Prince ton. The team left the campus about 3:30 o'clock and took the 4:17 o'clock train for Xew York. Almost every student in Yale, together with many townspeople, were present to cheer the players as they left the campus. .New York, Nov 17. In a hotly con tested game yesterday afternoon New York university was defeated by Rut gers college by the score of 11 to 0 at Ohio field. The home team was not only outplayed and outweighed, but iu poor physical condition. Three of the players were laid up with injuries. Clevordon, full back, was hurt iu the second half and weakened the team by having to retire. The Rutgers boys played a fast, snappy game, and did not give their opponents any breathing space between downs. Middletown. Nov 17. The team that Wesleyau will send to face Williams iu the championship game to-day will be quite a different team from the one that defeated Holy Cross. The men have improved both in offensive and defensive work during the past three days. The fumbling, which was so prominent on last Saturday, has dis appeared and every man plays with a snap that has not been displayed be fore this season. In short, the team is iu the pink of conditiuon. Philadelphia. Nov 17. Pennsylvania lines up against the Indians this after noon. The Indians are coming here full of confidence, remembering the victory which they wrested from Penn sylvania last year. Coach AVoodruff has been taught the utility of prepar ing for an individual opponent and during the last ten days he has been playing especial attention to his end run defense and to end running. De ficiency in the former cost Pennsyl vania the Harvard game, but the In dians will find it very difficult to circle the Red and Blue ends for consistent gains. Cambridge, X'ov '17. The Harvard football practice yesterday was char acteried by an improvement both in of fense and defense. There is still, how ever, room for a great deal of improve ment, for the second eleven went through the 'varsity lines for some neat gains, and at times held fairly well. The backs seemed to be satis fied to stop when they hit the opposing line, anil the half backs failed to help Ellis when he bucked the line. The ends continue to improve in getting down the field under punls. Captain Paly was out again yesterday, but is still unable to do hard work. Ithaca, Nov 17. There was qeite as much interest manifested in Ithaca last night over the Lafayette gai ie as there was before the Princeton gime, 'and nearly as many students will go to Eastou to witness the contest as went to Princeton. The students who go to Eastou will take considerable money with them to back' the team aod will be willing to back Cornell at odds of 2 to 1. Last year Lafayette's sup porters carried awav considerable of Cornell's money with them, aud Cor nell is anxious to get even. New York. Nov 17. Columbia foot ball players left yesterday morning for Annapolis to play the Naval Cadets to-day. The full snuad and substitutes were taken, including Quarter. Back Sykes, who will play in both this aud the Indian games. Captain Morley is especially anxious to win by a com fortable score so as to gain all the pres tige possible before the Thanksgiving day game in this city. The great de sire to defeat the Indians this year is not so much to make up for last year's defeat, but because there is a grow ing sentiment at Columbia that no fu ture games should be plaved with the red men. Since Columbia is now bound bv hard and fast eligibility rules the student opinion is that only such teams should be kept on the visiting list as are similarly handicapped. Princeton. Nov 17. A short, signal drill was all the work required of the players yesterday afternoon. Accord ing to Trainer Robinson, the men. bar ring two or throe who are suffering from the effects of old Injuries, are in tiie pink of condition and fit to stand the hammeriug of a gruelling contest. Nevertheless, it is the concensus of opinion here that Princeton will be obliged to send out several substitutes, for the constant plunges of Yale's big backs against the Tigers' light for wards are bound to wear the latter down. The management had this first in view when it required the scrub players to remain in training through the game, The conches, however, argue that their pupils, trained to the hour, ought to be in better shape than the Yale men, who can hardly be in top-notch form yet, for they have the Harvard eleven to face next week. Snn Francisco, Nor 17. Duff, the football player, was so low yesterday morning that physicians thought that he conid live only a few' hours. Presi dent Wheeler's secretary being misin formed, issued a bulletin of death and had the flags half-masted. Duff late in the afternoon took a turn for the better and It is now said he will re cover. ' . . Principal Prouty is evidently misin formed as far as New Britain Is con cerned else he has forgotten about the tactics that Meriden used, when they succeeded In getting the first game with New Britain played in Mer iden, after it had been arranged to play at Electric field, the crj being that Boardmau was tillable to. win from New Britain because the enthus iasts, who attended the game, rushed out on the field and ihterferred with the players. The absurdity of the cry is apparent, as there were less than 200 people at the game. Had Meriden played in New. Britain, as the team should have done if such cowardly tactics had been resorted to, the pres ent protest against Waterbury would be entirely unnecessary. Meriden would never have had that game with Waterbury. New Britain News. . A LIFE AND DEATH FIGHT. Mr W. A. Hines of Manchester. la., writing of ids almost miraculous es cape from death, says: "Exposure af ter measles induced serious lung trou ble, which ended in consumption. I had frequent hemoriages aud coughed night and day. All my doctors "said I must soon die. Then 1 began to use Dr King's New Discovery 'or Con sumption, which completely cured me.

Nov. 17.-Tho fea ture of tiie annual report -of Lieutenant General Miles, coiutnamiiiig the army, is a chapter d aiia;; vi;h the iieeJ fur a general reorganization of the military service. In. regard to this uuc tioa lie Bay: "The events of the past two years ami a huii' have resulted in a couditiou that tbo nation muxt vrepure to meet, 'the need for an cittcieut and well ur-ai:ied laud force for nu iiiif-tkiita period iu the future it most obvious, aud tiie organizc tiuu of such a force cannut he viiuiy avoided. There are weishiy ivajni why such a service as is new liemaiuled oC the arm; ttuuot he performed by a tem porary organisation." General Miles peiutx out that the prac tical limitation of service of the volun teers to oai; year iu tbe Philippines la a k is this a mot expensive practice, necessitating dosble transfer of troops aud aiiJiug enormously to the ccst of the orjaiiisntiou. He aio points out the need of a reserre force for tin; relief of tbe soldiers who serve in the tropics, de ciarin; that the regiments that huve so far serred more than two years at un healthy stations should be relieved. Gen eral Miles renews his recommendation that the permanent force of the army should be one man for each thousand of population of the United States. In supplying cay increase of the army he ui-fc'es that appointments of otiicers be made with a due ruai'd lur the princi- V t ft', 3 , 4 " GENERAL NKT.SOX A.

He submits a draft of a bill embodying his view3 and rccuiiimenUniioiis on army reorganization. The report shows that tbo urv:it de mands for troo;:s for remote station, ha.i reduced the number in the Fulled Kiates to a much smuih-r force than Las Leeu maintained at any time tin i in.; the past 3tf years. In fact, says General Miles, the force has been so much ted;'ee;t that at the present timv tbe;e are not oue fourth enough tioops properly to care for and man tiie foi tiik-aiLuis which Lave been erected on the teu'wst at an ex penditure of uaarly firi.WD.OUU.

The actual number of tro;ps reumiuiug iu the United States efter the dispatch of soldiers to Culm, 1'orto itico, .Maskj and the I'liiUnptuea is said to be Dt'jj o Si ecru and iS,h!l5 en listed men. General Miles sn.vs that during the past iwo years the army has been eufaeil iu two hemispheres un. lei all conditions and hardships and lias on all occasions exhibited eoura.-e. stability, excellent marksmanship and devotion to duty. Touching upon the Chinese eftuipaijru. General Miles compares the American contincent in the I'ekins expedition with those of other nationalities and says: "It would be difficult to name any oc casion on which troops engaged in action were better -em:ua'.ded, were more steady under tire or where they made the soldier's sacrilice with mote uusellish patriotism or rendered a higher tribute to the honor, of their country.'' Great reverence is said to be due the memory of Colonel K. S. Liseuui, who fell while leadiaj his troops with un daunted courage and marked ability. Ma jor Jesse M. Lee of tbe Ninth infantry is also commended as bavins sustained tbe honorable reputation acquired by him in the civil war and since upon tnkiujf the command of the American forces at Tien-tsiu after Colonel Liseum's death. Captain Iteiily is also named as an ideal American soldier, vilh.jtrf feaf'AifA w'rni out reproach, who by his death at Peking: again demonstrated the zeal aud courage of the American soldier. . General Miles calls attention to the fact that under the lavr tbe volunteers in the Philippines must be withdrawn and discharged before July 1 next, wherefore, he says, it -will he n-jcessary to begin their return home almost immediately. In a few short paragraphs the report skows what has been accomplished in tbo officers' training schools nnd toward the extension of the coast defense system. On this last great work, he says, $55, 000,000 has been expended already, and at least $45,000,000 will be required to carry out the present projects. For the next fiscal year alone the sum of $11, 827,000 is estimated as necessary to de fray, the cost of fortifications, barracks and. sites on the coasts. Gritsrn -Will Retire.
