Manager Dixon of the local profes sional basket ball team has decided not to play any more games until 'b'. istnias afternoon when the strong All New York team will lie pitted against the local quintet. There are various reasons for not arranging any games for this week or next week, the most important being that, with tiie exception of the New Britain and Vale quintets, ihere are no oilier teams in 1 he state capable of putting up a fast article of ball against the local team. Middletown had a tirst class team last year but this year as yet they have not come together.

Only i: the First roriod Did the Lo cals Iluld Their Own The "Whole SpriugQuU Team Did Excellent "Work Meriden Worsted By Hartford- Notes from Around the Cir cuit. It is not hard to tell haw we lost that game to Springfield last night, for we were simply outplayed from first to last. It is true that we hammerrd balls enough against Ileff email's pads, but in pas-sing and juggling the ball and in Paying with it in front of ths cage before putting it inside Spring field won by many points. Pierce was easily the star of the game, and while Curtis did good work at times, like our own Daly he missed many oppor tunities. Several times Jean interel'etvd with I'iercein tim- of ids dasiies for the goal, but several times did Dicky evade him and make his dasli effective. .lean played a desperate game, ami when he saw that victory was slipping away from him he made tin effort to assist on the rush line himself. Hold 'mess blocked as wei! as he usually dot's and many limes did he break up the p. lays in front of the goal. Fox aI-'o stopped many hard drives, bul he was pnzdej several titnis to tell just where Pierce was going to take the bail. Every member of the Springfield learn played poio and fast polo, and it might just tis well be said now as auy time that Springfield with its present aggregation ought to win a majority of til games. It looked as if it was going to be a hard and evenly fought contest iu tiie first period. After playing manly four minutes of time and with the ball most of the time in Springfield's territory. Jrilhii managed io send one into the netting. Four minutes more had passed when Curtis hammered one be liind Fox. Thus the period ended, in the second period ii was a long and bitter eoutcst before a goal was caged, and th ai Dicky Pierce carried one through the bunch and with the assist ance of Curtis rolle,! it behind Fox. Forty-eight seconds had been played after that goal was made when Tom my Iiohh rm ss attempted to drive one from behind ids own cage out to the "renter of the lloor. It struck Fox on the pads and bounded into our own age. Cril'tu then made one in a little less than six minutes, and Fierce took the next two in less titan three min utes. That ended the scoring in the second period. With the score o to '2 in their favor the visitors began to play horse with the locals and Curtis caged the next one in Iess than live minutes. Dalv liuaily caught a pass and lodged one' behind "Big Bill." and Curtis again did good work in gelling anothar and the last one in less than six min utes of play. The score aud summary: Vv'aterhury.

Crowded from cellar to rafters last night, Madison Square Harden was a scene of wild excitement, a few m-n-utes after !) o'clock, when the worst smash-up of the great six days' bicycle race occurred. Six men were thrown at the Twenty-sixth street turn cf the track on the Madiatat avenue end. and several of them were seriously injured. Turville was knocked unconscious. Arouson xvas badly hurt about the body and his eye was lacerated. The two Frenchmen. Gougoltz and Simar, and Waller and Fisher, all were pitched over their wheels and stiff eie.l for a time from their shaking up and from shock. There were 12.000 or more specta tors iu the Garden at the time. Frot i an easy, leisurely, rolling gait, the rid ers bent over their handlebars and drove along at a swift pace in antici pation of a spurt while Kaser and Ry scr were changing. Simar was about to relieve Gougoltz and was almost be hind them, with McFarland on ihe in side. They came down one of the stretch.es hunched, with the great crowd on its feet cheering the leaders. Suddenly the Frenchmen, who were alternating, came together on ihe turn, and with a grat crash went down. Mc Farland shot through like a Hash. but. Waller went driving into the wreck. Turville was higher up. and his ma chine, moving with, great speed, passed over the legs of one of the men. and then stuck-, like a bucking broncho. Turville was thrown clear over the rail into a box. where he lay bleeding and unconscious. Fisher could not cheek his headway am! wont down with the others. r,. .i -. ,..,.,.,t ()S fi(i those who had escaped the carnage, and then gained lap after lap on the fallen rid ers. But it was all for naught. The laps were returned to the men who had been in the accident, because no body seemed to be responsible. Fisher, however, lost a legitimate lap iu addi tion to those that were returned to him. Turville was carried to his tout, where the surgeon iu charge made an examination. He found that. Turville had sustained bud contusions of the right thigh .and multiple bruises of th body. Ho was suffering also from shock. Aroiisnn had a hi cent ted eye and face and contusions of the back, which kept him oil" the track for a time. Fisher was down on iiis back in his place with general contusions and shock. Th.e Frenchmen were shak en up only. Changes in the positions of the rid ers tire not f reiiucnt, and last midnight th.e two leading American teams were tour tndes beyond the 1.4CO mile marl:. i he Elkes ano ".Farland. Pierce and McEachern pairs are not more than the distance apart that separated them when the pistol sent them away to gether at five minutes after midnight Sunday night. Together Hie individ uals of these two teams have circled the oval within touching distance of each other for more than a thousand miles, ami in the other four hundn d they have not been more than a few yards apart. July eight teams now are left in the contest. Aucoutrier. after being dragged out to the track Tuesday night by Mi tiller, his partner, was compelled to give up. Mullet" was heartbroken, and declared he would finish the ra -e himself: but as the rules forbade that. Mullet had to abandon th.e contest. He says he never will forgive Aucoutrier for bringing disgrace on him. Exhibitions relieved the lnonotony in the afternoon and evening. Coop er went a mile, paced by' a gasoline tandem, in 1 :."2 1.1, while' Michael fol lowed the same machine for five miles to the time of !):ir. 2-.1. Major Haylor. who holds the championship sprint record of l!Ml(i ,also appeared on the track. -v iiaiuer who lias noon more or less .iiiiw.ii an me men saui luat I'.lKes !S in the best shape of the men on the track, principally due to his having been in better condition when he be gan. McFarland. this man said, is suffering from a muscular strain of the heel, and his future riding depends on this. Elkes relieved .McFarland at H o'clock, and started a fast pace. About this time the bunch caught Ry ser napping and got half a lap on him. but by a fine uphill spurt he got them again, amid tremendous applause. Soon after this Waller started a sprint, and ihmgoltx during tiie spurt got in a fine jump, which left him half a lap ahead of the others. Mel'arlaml took the lead in cutting him down, ami , tie dragged them till up to Oougohz's ; wheel. Kikes sat ai a table eating ! when he noticed the spurt, aud lie got j on his wheel to relieve McFarland. The i Califoi iiian told him to stay off a while ; longer, as he was all right.

Xot Much Accomplished But the Players Get a Hearing. Andrew Freedman. president of the New York baseball club, has come to the conclusion that, it would be well for him to see what's doing in the Na tional league. Accordingly he betook himself to the councils of the league yesterday ami kept an eagle eye on proceedings. The club owners finally did gut into session after a delay of a day, d they did not accomplish much, simply because there was nothing to accomplish. None of Cue committees is yet ready to report, and the most important committee of all. so far as public interest is cotjce-rned that which conferred with the committee' from the Players' Protective associa tion was compelled io postpone the presentation of the report until lo elay. In th.e morning the players' dele gatesPresident y.immer of the Pitts burg club, Secretary Jennings of Brooklyn and Attorney Taylor-met. the league comit.it tt-e. composed of Colonel John I. Rogers of Philadelphia. A. II. Soden of Boston aud .John T. Brush of Cincinnati, and presented their elemtinds regarding changes in the contract. A memorandum of II "Se demands v.-as submitted to Ihe league, which was it: session in tlie afternoon. The principal points cover ed in the memorandum .areas follows: First-Club owners not to haw- ihe rigid to -reset--,-,." players ;,' :i v--.;. un less than thai, provided for the ensu ing year, nor for more than three years. Second -;iub owner.; not to buy. sell, assign, trad.'. !en-l. a---cp!. select ol claim service ot any player fo any ; period in any way v, -!: iii irs written ' con-vnh ; Third Club owners to pay pbysi- ' chins' fees for injuries receive:!" in actual play. Fourth-No player Io be suspended without pay more than three times a season or more than two -weeks, at a time. Fifth -Committee of arbit rai ion. one member to be chosen by owners, one by the players ami a third by these two. such committee to pass on all differences between players and own ers. At the request of the piayers the meeting of 1 he committees was an open one. and they noi only scored : I point hero, hut in coming boldly out : ami m-manding a ilea ring t 1m- Players' ! association has done what never wa done before. They made a statement of their case aud impression. plain good Mr Soden stated that a- ;he result of correspondence boiween Mr Taylor and. the owners, the committee had been appointed to listen to the de mands of tha players. The committee he said, was appointed last Sentem ber. but for various reasons could, not meet the players' eommiiiee until the present time. Mr Soden said that ihe committee laid no power to act. but would report the conference back to the meeting of the league. The New York club has secured I wo new minor league players in Pulsifer. and oiit-tielder. and Conroy. a first baseman. The Brooklyn club yester day completed a deal by whieif liny getShartstop Elberfield from Detroit. The rules committee have received two suggestions from Chief" Zi miner, the I'iiisburg catcher. Zimmer sug gests that in the future iu all 'double headers" each game shall be limited to seven innings instead of nine. He also snggesfs that a ride be m-ol,. which will eomtiel a oiieliei t,. .l.-l;,-.,,. i tne bai us the batter sieiw t,i., ,i... batters box. ihe proposed rule only permiis the pitcher to deliver the bail elsewhere in en so a number is on one of the bases. This would do away wilh needlc.-s delays in games. It is often the case that a pitcher will delay the game by "warming up" by pitch ing to a baseman, even though the baiter has taken his position.' Th.e new rule would compel the pitcher to deliver the hall to the plalo immediate ly tifter a batsman takes his position. TIM IIFRST SAI.ESMAX. Louisville. Ky.
