The custom of kissing an opponent
In a ring of any kind is not one that
has obtained in America up to this
time. We do not know just what Kid
Broad's ancestry might have been, but
he certainly displayed a European bent
Of thought when lie kissed Terry Mc
Govern after his defeat last Tuesday
ni.L'ht: The light was a good one. and
Kid Broad certainly did the best lie
knew how to win his fight with Terry.
A fight such as Kid Broad put up will
do much to boost him toward thetop.
He may not be as clever as many
world wish, but he is a lighter, and
while lie is fighting he gives the on
looker an idea that he knows what he
wants to do. and from his perform
ance against Terry McGovern lie
proved that he is a comer. lie has met
most of the best men in the east, and
comes on with an eastern manager
and nearly makes good with a man
who Is known as- a topnotcher of the
featherweight men. The Kid acknowl
edged his defeat manfully, but still has
hopes of being able to make a show
ing that Trill put him on the upper
shelf. He was -well coached and had
the best of advice, lint there is still
much that lie can learn in meet in sr men
like McGovern. Tern- wovked hard

The Kid had ncthing else to do but
train, and had nn "Bowerv After Park"
to look after. He has shown that lie
can take a rruelincr and lie crave Ter
rv the best kind of a proposition ever
put up against him.
REFEREE IX LOXDO.V.
At the National Sporting club, Lon
don. England, a. private institution, the
referee sits in a huge arm chair out
side the ring and directs the contests
from that cosy position. He instructs
the contestants, as we do in this coun
try, but t cautions them strongly
against holding.. Should an opponent
hold he is cautioned, and upon the sec
ond or fliird Infringement lie is dis
qualified -Then -the spectators, gen
erally members of ihe club and their
friends,' applaud the referee for his
promptness in disqualifying the offend
er. In this country clubs depend up
on the general public for support. The
public pays, its money to witness a
fisrltt. or a number of fights, and
should a referee disqualify for holding
after, say, three cautions, the even
ing's boxing entertainment would last
just about long enough for the spec
tators to get comfortably seated. And
the referee who made the entertain
ment so enjoyable would be presented
with everything that wasn't nailed "to
the floor. Disqualifying is a good
thing for a private club in England,
where the referee is upheld, but in
America, where the box office is the
Important factor, hardly. Refereeing
outside of the ring is also a good thing
in England, and is in strict accordance
with the rules, but that.- like sending
an opponent to his corner for holding,
would not do in this country. Jack
McAuliffe. ex-lightweight champion of
America, tried to referee a fight out
fide the ring several years aeo. but
crawled throuch the ropes after the
fight got at white heat ami worked

ants. HAXLON BROKE HAND.
Savannah. Ga, Nov 21. Jack Hanlon
of Pbiladelohia- threw ud the sponge
to Tom Corcoran of Savannah after the
ninth round in what was to have been
n twenty-five round fight last night.
Hanlon broke his hand. There was
bad blood between the kcii. and the
l'L'ht was furious. The largest crowd
ever gathered here to see a fight was
in attendance. '
MARTIN FLAHERTY TALKS.
Charles J. -Harvey still-wants to back
Martin Flaherty agatfisr Terry McGov
ern.' and after six loiig . months of
waiting, Harvey's 300 is .uncovered..
He now comes along again with a re
minder to Sam Harris that a match
was promised hi nil He writes- as fol
lows: "For six months I had ?r0O post
ed as a forfeit to match Martin Flah
erty against Terry McGovern. Final
ly in August last, Sam Harris gave
me his absolute word ttiat he would
take Flaherty as McGovern's first op
ponent when he again went Into active
competition. Since then McGovern
has fought ' Bernstein and Broad,
whie-h shows how .worthless is Har
ris's word. He has now matched Mc
Govern against Gaus at 135 pounds.
This is certainly a peculiar match for
a man, who. always raises objection on
the weight question. Flaherty y
take McGovern on at 12S pounds, and
does not ask to split the .money, as
most of Terry's opponents ask. Frank
Erne defeated Joe Gans, making him
quit; Flaherty defeated Frank Erne
and received a decision over him
which Erne has never tried to square
pp. Yet In the face of this Harris re
fuses to take on Flaherty, a man In
McOovern' class. I stand ready to
match Flaherty against McGovern at
any time and place, and ir Harris has
a real champion under hts wine who
wants to fight at the featherweight h'm
, It, here Jb bis opportunity to make
' good his word given to me." . ,

way I think Is right, I would sayjthe
red topped, man's chances were the
best. . Tiiere Is only one way. to fight
tli big fellow;, and that Is to fight him
cluvetiy, as eorbett did. There is no
doubt whatever that Corbett " would
have secured the decision over him
down at Coney Island only for the
lucky punch in the twenty-third round.
The big fellow was doing well,, but he
was as slow as a snail compared to
Corbett, who would land repeatedly
without a return, and that left hook
of Corbett's would catch Jeff many
times before he even thought it was
coming. As I said before, I was in
Jeffries's corner, and when the fight
was drawing so close to an end and
Corbett was doing so well I told Jeff
that he would have to let out and try
and laud a deciding punch, and this
he did. Corbett in sending his left
hooks draws his arm away back before
he lets go. I noticed this from the
start and told Jeff repeatedly to ear
ly Ids left high and when Corbett
started his left to hook in a short one
and get there first. This he did and
it was all off with Corbett. I will give
Jeffries credit for his great fight with
Sharkey, for he was no fit man to en
ter the ring that night. His condition
was the worst and a fit ril.ieo for h'm
was his bod. I do not want to de
tract nnv credit from Jeffries in any
way. but I am simply saving that I
like Fitz's chances should they meet
again."
ABOUT THE RINGSIDE.
A return battle between Kid Carter
and Tim Murphy, bifcttier to Billy, Mur
phy of Australia, is spoken of. ' '
Tommy Ryan has sent a challenge
to meet "Dido" Plumb in a twenty
round bout before the National Sport
ing cl:b.
It has been settled that Tommy Ry
an will not train Champion Jim Jef
fries again. The big boilermaker says
he is through with Ryan.
Peter Felix, the colored heavyweight
champion of Australia, writes to a
friend in this country that it is his
intention to visit America next spring.
Owing to the fact that the building
cannot be completed by Thanksgiving
day the match arranged between Spike
Sullivan and Eddie Kennedy at Ran
kin, near Pittsburg, has been post
poned. AI Herford has again challenged
Johnny Hughes of England on behalf
of his protege. Joe (Jans. Herford
has asked I r Ordway. the American
representative of the club, to offer a
purse for the twain.
It appears tlir.t the proposed match
lift ween Sammy Kelly and Will Cur
ley, which was to have been decided
in England, is far from being settled.
Kelly is still in this country. No Eng
lish club has bid for the fray.
It seems that the effort on the part
of Jim Corbett to meet Jim Jeffries
in a six-round bout in Chicago was in
the nature of a, bluff. The authori
ties of the Windy city will, under no
consideration, countenance bouts be
tween big fellows.
The battle between Australian Billy
Edwards and "Mysterious" Billy
Smith did not take place at Louisville
on Monday nigiit. The audience was
small and as the fighters refused to
battle for the meagre gate receipts,
the contest was called off for good.
Younsrstown, Ohio. Nov 21. Billy
Ryan, of Syracuse, defeated Kid Iler
rick last night at the Youngstown A.
C. in a twenty-round bout. The hall,
which seats 3,0(1(1. wns crowded. The
men weighed 124 pounds at 3 o'clock
in the afternoon.
Al Smith, who is holding the for
feits of both Tom Sharkey and Gus
Ruhlin in their proposed meetings
with Champion Jeffries, received word
yesterdav that Billy Madden would be
in. New York to-day to fix up the final
details of the encounter. Smith is
of the opinion that a battle, will surely
be arranged.
Sam Harris has .deposited S'iOO in
Chicago on behalf of Jack O'Brien ,the
Philadelphia middleweight. Harris
thinks that O'Brien can whip Tommy
Ryan and offers to match him against
the-latter. Harris lias also deposited
a similar sum for Danny Dougherty,
who is ready to clash with any 110
povmrte?. '
Tommy Hogan of Chicago, who de
feated Bill Chester before the Nation
al Sporting club of London last swing,
has returned to America. Hogan
wants to meet Terry McGovern and
efforts will bomade to bring the two
together. Hosran says that boxing is
booming in England and that there
are several good pugilists on the other
side now.
AGAINST FOOTBALL GAMES.
Rector of St Patrick's Cathedral In
" Newark Criticises, the Game.
rector
Newark
CathOllc'f divines fnlthj part of the.
country, 'eanie out. yesterday 'afternoon
in an open letter against football, in
which he says:
"1 have never seen -a prize fight, a
bull hght or a Rugby game, but from
the accounts I have read of them I
should think they were about equally
brutal. Why call the Rugby game a
game. "Why not call it' a buttle? - Why
call It playing when it is fighting? The
places where it Is played are, I am
told, equipped like a battlefield, with
surgeons and stretchers, if not am
bulances. It seems vain to raise a
voice against it when you read that at
Princeton last Saturday some $70,000
was, spent a see Yale and Princeton
hammer each other.
"It seems that this time no vital In
juries were inliicted, but the reporters
say that many were battered and
bruised, and the captain of the Prince
ton team had to go home for a week
to recover from his strain. We have
laws against bull fights and dog fights
and prize hghts. ' Ahy is there not a
law against such contests as these, in
which violence and roughness carry
the day? How. can Jt be. otherwise
than demoralizing not only to those
who take part in them, but to those
Who witness them? Some other name
than 'muscular Christianity' will have
to be devised for these so-called mod
ern games, if a spade is to be called a

With Meriden Hartford Beat Meri

Be Here To-night Some Interesting
Polo Notes.
Hartford, Nov 21 Hartford defeat
ed Meriden in rather easy fashion last
night. The feature of the gaiue was
the knockout of Sehortold by one or
Cotter's drives. The drive was not as
accurate as the big chief usually makes
and it veered oft to an angle of eigh
teen degrees, landing 011 ScholiolJ's
head so hard that he dropped to the
tioor. He pluckily resumed play in a
few minutes and was cheered for. his
show of pluck. Tile last time the
Hartfords played in Meriden, Cusick
got in lro:it of one of Cotter's drives.
Last night lie kept his hands behind
his protector. One foul was called.
This was on Cuslck for holding
Wodtke. It saved a goal for Meriden.
Cuslck found he was unable to pre
vent outke from sending the bail into
the cage, so he went out and tagged
him wijh his arms around the- neck.

YALE WON GAME.
Basket Ball Last Night at the Y. M.
C. A. Gymnasium.
A fair-sized crowd witnessed the
basket ball game at the Y. M. C. A.
gymnasium last evening between the
local Y. M. C. A. five and the Yale
'Varsity team. The game was one of
those close and sternly fought for
games which arouses in the spectateirs
every bit of enthusiasm which they
possess. There was only one disap
pointing feature of the game in a
spectator's point of view and that
was. Waterbury was beaten by a score
of 25-24. This is the first time Yale
lias won from the local five in four
years and that they feel elated over
their victory is speaking mildly. Wa
terbury started off like a winner, scor
ing eighteen points to five for Yale
in the first half. But the pace, which
they had set, was too fast for them
and in the second half they were com
pletely fagged cut. Yule scoring as
they pleased, making eighteen points
while Waterbury coukl make only six.
During the latter part of the second
half, as the Yale tenia gradually nearer
to the local live, drawing closer and
closer, then trying them and finally
succeeding in passing them, the in
terest in the game was intense. The
local boys fought gamely on but Yale's
better condition showed itself and
they won by the score of 25-24. The

ON THE GRIDIRON.
All Eyes Now Centered On the Yale
Harvard Game.
The betting on the Yale-Harvard
game yesterday was at even money.
Indications point to a large amount of
money being wagered on this event.
Critics still believe that the elevens
are evenly matched, all things consid
ered wuiie the late team is con
ceded to be the heaviest in the country,
the Harvard eleven is not far behind.
Yale has six-'foldm-s in ,' Blooirier,

tljeni: with .CaanpheU, Ivee, KaVnrtrd.

weight .Jlaryard, has the. fceaviejcii Js,
while Yale has the bigger tackles. At
the guards the Blues have a straight
advantage in avoirdupois, while it is
about a stand-off at center. The bad-
fields are equally balanced, the great
line bucker. Perry Hale, being matched
by Shirlev Ellis. The Jsanie will, there
fore, be contested bv the heaviest and
tallest players on the gridiron this sea
son. The question of endurance, it
seems, is cutting a more important 1U
ure than any oilier factor, and in this
respect Yale appears to have the call.
In all of their games this season the
Yale men have shown an ability to fin
ish strongly. In tact, they have played
with more aggressiveness and power
in the second half than in the first.
This was the case against Columbia
and against Princeton, Yale nmk;n
brilliant spurts in both instances. Tin
statement coming from New Haven
that Wear may be displaced by Fine!
as Yale's quarttr back is a source of
satisfaction to. many supporters of the
Blue who have seen Wear's muffs and
fumbles in recent games. AYith Finckc
at quarter back it is believed til
Yale's most palnable weakness should
disappear. vhi' the presence of
Sharpe at half back should strengthen
the team in punting and drop kicking.
Sharpe is a more skillful punter than
Hale and may come in handy if Daly
and Ellis, the Harvard punters, are in
their best form. Many experts have
wondered whv r nuke wan not substi
tuted for Wear some time ago. but the
explanation of the coaches has always
been tnnt wear possessed the cooler
head and showed superior judgment
111 handling thi' eleven. Fincke, flow
ever, made such a splendid showing at
half back against the Indians and
Princeton that the coaches, in view of
Wear's rattles, have probably con
cluded that the change is both timely
and advisable. Y"ith Wear fumbling
in the Harvard game, it is pointed c-wt
that the fieetness of the Crimson ends
may result fatally for Yale. Fincke
has had experience at quarter hack
and his substitution for Wear will not
handicap the eleven as to signals anel
methods. Harvard men arirup tint if
Captain Daly is Idmself Yale v. ill be
outgeneraled. .Daly wns never seri
ously injured, though he took to his
brd and for several days used crutch
es. He sprained a tendon back of one
of his knees and it was deemed wise
for him to take things easily. Those
who know haw he is now say that
Daly will be at his best on this occa
sion, which means everything to Har
vard. -As far as tle make-un of the
elevens is concerned. Yale will put the
same team in the field, barring Fincke
nt quarter back and Sharpe at half
back, that defeated Priiueton, while
Harvard will depend upon Ihe same
coii'.binatiu?! that vanquished Pennsyl
vania, except possibly Burnett at cen
ter in. the place of Rargent. In point
of physical condition, the skill of two
of the best football . trainers in 1h
country. Mike Murphy and 'Jack Mc
Masters. will bo put to a thorough
t: st. Murphy s i far has excelled all
previous re perils., but Me?,Iaster.s has
prepared the Crimson team in recent
years with much cleverness. The de
mand for seats Is large but unavoil'ng.
At a New ITaven hotel yesterday a
Harvard graduate offered $123 for five

New Haven, Nov 21. nard work
was again the order of the day at the
Ynle football field yesterday afternoon.
The play was of the whirlwind style.
There were several changes in the
'varsity. Shame was , played at left
half back and Fincke at quarter. Chad
wick was again out of the play, and
Cook was af right half back. .Rich
nrdsin was used nt right guard in
Sheldon's place. The substitute ends,
Ferguson aud Raflerty, were also on
the 'varsity. Wear was out and in
good physical condition, and there was
a good deal of surprise expressed over
the playing of Fincke at quarter. The
conclusion is that the coaches want
to let Fincke have a little practice at
quarter so he can step into that posi
tion on- Saturday if he is needed.

was hr pretty poor shape upon his ar
rival here, but it was not until yester
day that it was deemed advisable for
him to go to the hospital. It is not
believed that he is seriously hurt, but
he was pretty badly used up and it
was decided that the hospital was the
best place, for him. He was said to
(e quite comfortable yesterday and it
is thought that he will be out again
within a short time, although it is not
likely that he will play football again
tins year.

dition and are confident of winning.

the afternoon. It Is with such an
eleven the Cadets will have to con
tend on Thanksgiving afternoon at the
Driving park: but the local boys are
confident of winning, ns with their op

already many- from neighboring towns
have signified their intention of being
present at the game.
