Tommy Ryan, who now claims' Chicago as his home, defeated '"Kid'' Carter of Brooklyn iu six rounds "iu Tattersall's last night before a crowd of 5,000 persons. Ryan had the best of the fight all the way, with the exception of two intervals n the first aud second rounds, 'when Car ter sent him to the mat with right -ewiugs. Carter was beaten fearfully about the head and face, and although lie went the limit he fought the last three rounds without knowing much nliotit. what he was doing, except that there was a man in front, of him whom lia had to i.il. He fought gamely to the last, and his superior weight and strength was a heavy handicap to Ryan. Ryan, however, was much to clever for Ciirter, and he got iJside nearly every swing he made, and blocked three out of five blows that were sent to his body. Ryan entered the ling at 10:19 nnd waited for Carter, who did not appear until 10:27. 'When Carter tcok his seat Ryan noticed his hands were bound tightly wiVh bandages. He at once offered objection, saying that he did not mind Carter's keeping a ban dage around his iad. but he wished them removed from the knuckles. Ryan carried his point. Referee S iler ordering Carter to wind bandages around the lower portion of his hand. In Ryan's corner were Billy Stiff, Billy Ryan and Bob Long. Carter being attended to by Tommy Sullivan. John ny Reagan and Bob Dillon. The match was at J.'S pound'- the men -welsrhnng In at 0 o'clock. Both were under weight, although Carter had several pounds best of it when he entered the ring. "'.

Justice Leventritt in the superior court yesterday confirmed the report oiP Daniel P.' Ingrahatu, " as referee, granting a divorce to Mrs Julia E. Selby from Xorinau Selby, known in pugilistic circles as "Kid" McCoy. The divorce was granted , on statutory grounds. McCoy went to London soon after his wife began suit for divorce, and he is there at tlse present time, threatening to remain for the winter. The Kid told his friends he was going to S.outh Africa to live down the dread ful thoughts of his wife's suit, but the attractions of London proved too much for him, and he declined to continue the journey, once safe out of New York. It was due to Mrs Selby that tlie fake fijjht between Corbett And McCoy was exposed. JOHN L. BETTER. John L. Sullivan, who recently un derwent a dnugerous surgical opera tion at the Polyclinic hospital, returned to his cafe at Forty-second street and Sixth avenue, yesterday. Barring a loss of flesh and a slight weakness in the legs, the former champion seemed to be all right. He was kept busy all the afternoon shaking hands with his friends, and seemed to be well pleased at his escape from the hospi tal. '-It's wonderful." said he, "how those fellows can carve you to pieces, then sew you up. aud still bring you out all right. I never felt better in my life, and exceut I'm a little shaky on my pins from being in bed so long. I'm all right. I dropped twenty-two pounds of flesh, which won't hurt' me." RUHLIN AND MAHER. Philadelphia. Nov 28. Gus Ruhlin aud Peter Maher yesterday were matched to fight six rounds before the Penn Ait Athletic club in this city on December 17.

It Was a Fast Game and Rough at Stages-AVaterbury Lost One Goal on Fouls Sprjugfield Comes t Here To night for a Thrashing The Water bury Team Is Thought Pretty Well of Around the Circuit Other Polo Notes of Interest. The Hartford Courant describes the game last night as follows: Hartford added another victory to its long list of home winnings at the Col iseum last night, defeating AVaterbury 8 to 4. Waterbury made Ave goals and lost one because of three fouls that the referee called. The teams started the second period with the score a tie. Up to within a. few minutes of the final time limit Hartford had a lead of one goal and the game was unusually exciting. The game was of a different order than the contest Saturday, night, when the game , see-sawed along in a scien tific way. Last night the players re sorted to brute strength more than cleverness, und they bounded into each other with a force that shook the side rails. The game had notUbeen under way long before it was seen that there would be a. lot of polo before the uight was over. At hrst tue players called .the attention of the referee to the fouls made by men on the opposing side. This made ill feeling and the rough house began. Some of the spectators made' re marks at Referee Lush about his fail ing to call fouls en the Waterbury players. He blew his whistle and the faultfinders thought he was going to call a foul. ''It is time you called it," one shouted. The referee bad stopped the game not to call a foul but to or der a policeman to throw out a man who had made a remark. Manager Cotter also told the officer to keep the spectators quiet and if unnecessary re marks were made to put out the of fender. Mr Lush told the officer that the man he had a grievance against wore a light hat. The man took off his light hat, pulled a dark one out of his pock et and put it on. He was not discov ered. Scon afterwnrds the game was stopped to compel Daly to shorten the length of the strap on his hockey. The rules provide that the straps shall not i lit. ,.rsr n rwtnin length. uaiy nau - rubber strap he conld thiw llis hoi.key fitte,. feet across the room. e was com pelled to obey the rules. A local sharp predicted a few days aco that Waterburv was outclassed by the other teams. He has now a chance to revise his opinion as AVaterbury put tin an excellent game last, night and Hartford was compelled to nlay the hardest kind of a game to win.

Meriden Journal.' ; ' When John Wiley gets into the game with Meriden the teams will be pretty well matched aud then what a fight it will be to keep out of last place. Wa- terbury does not intend to occupy that uosition and we give all the other teams warning to that effect. They are beginning to admit that Waterbury can play polo some and the New Haven and Hartford ran were given fast and Uerce polo before their pet teams won. Wait until we get them on our own surface and we will return the compliment with interest.

He Engages the Two Boys for Next Season's Racing. London, Nov 28. Richard Croker goes to Carlsbad in a few days for three months. He had a long farewell talk last evening with the Relfl's. who will be passengers on the Deutschland, which sails 'for New York on Friday. Mr Croker has engaged both the Reiffs and Trainer Wishard for next season. "I am satisfied that had the Jockey club limited its investigation to the run ning of The Scotchman II.." said Mr Croker, "it would long ago have been settled. But, having, entered into the question which Lord Durham's charges started." the stewards, I think, have found that those who tried to put up tli game exposed the weakness of their own hand to an extent they little anticipated, and that they thus unwit tingly opened a field which has sur urised and chagrined" them. I have just returned fom Newmarket, and all my information has' strengthened my faith iu the Reiffs and Wishard. " 1 am perfectly willing to abide by the result. The matter is giving me little trouble. "I had to laugh at the alleged inter views with me in the London papers to-day.. The idea that I am going to France is utterly imaginative likewise the expressions on American politics. "Little Johnny Reiff is going to the United States to attend school. He gives the world e.viftenc.e of the kind nf bnv the American bov is. With all his success on the English turf he is not satisfied. He Is preparing for a useful life, while many jockeys are content to spend the winter nnprofit- ably around the training stables. John ny Reiff is not willing to limit his fu ture to raciDg alone, I think that tells llio whole story of mericnu success on the English turf. Educational train ing is the best medicine I know of for either horse or rider." FAMOUS BOAT BUILDER DEAD. Peter Voight. Whose Shells Were Used by College Crews, Expires Suddenly. New York, Nov 28. Many an athlete who has pushed the nose of a racing shell to victory will be sorry to hear of the sudden death of Peter oight. one of the oldest and most famous builders of racing shells in this coun-. try.

They played the' strong Unionville team and a tie game with Torrington T. A. B. team; and last Saturday won from the strong Wlnsted team by a score of 11 to 5.

The University of Wisconsin eleven has cancelle 1 to-moi'row's game with BroWir because the players did not ore to keep iu training. Wisconsin, by the way, made a fine record this sea son. Providence, Nov 2S. The Brown eleven, at a, meeting yesterday, elected U llliam P. Bates, '02. as captain lor next year. . Libe Washburn, the pres ent 'captain," graduates next June, and Bates Is considered a worthy successor. He made the 'varsity eleven iu his freshman year aud iu the past three seasons nas established uimselt in :11s position as full back as a strong line bucker and a sure punter. W. B. Shoemaker, manager of tlie Columbia 'varsity eleven, said yester day that tlie advance sale of seats for to-morrow's game willi the Indians was unprecedented. He said that in dications point to a crowd of more than 15.000 spectators inside of Colum bia tield. Coach Sasifurd declares that the eleven will be iu better shape than it was in the games witli lale aud Princeton, and that tlie Indians will have the hardest kind ot a tune to win. That football enjoys popular support is showu by the amount of money ex pended on Saturday to see the Har- vard-iale game at. New Haven. Aooui S.00O persons went to the scene of ac tion, from New York and gave up for round trip tickets 'i each. Nearly 10.- 000 made the trip from Boston and back at $7 a lMad; bo that tlie New York. New. Haven and HartforJ rail road took in .close to $100,000. The visitors after arriving at New Haven had to eat., ride iu cabs and pay for other necessaries. Hating tlie expen diture at au average of $3 each, a total cf $34,000 is a fair estimate of tlie money spent In that city, 'twenty-two thousand persons saw tlie game, tlie bed-rock price for tickets being $2. But as many bought seats from speculators at advanced rates, it is fair to assume that $00,000 was put out for the priv ilege of seeing the battle. This would make a grand total of more than $2O0.- 000. which is a low estimate of tlie money placed in circulation when H is considered that those wno went to New Hav'eu did not limit expense. Tlie Y'ale .management increased the seat ing capacity of W stands 5.000. but they could have bad room for Sri.OOO persons aud yet have disposed of every ticket. This goes to show that Inter collegiate football is one of tlie most popular sports in America, and that if the promoters of it. were out for big profits Ijhey could take in unlimited coin.: , - ,-.''' iThB; Smith Premier fypeiiter Co Jew York Office 337 Broadway; Hartford Office Pennsylvania is a favorite over Cor' nell for to-morrow's game at Philadelphia-at odds of 5 to-.
