WaterbiliT Is Playing , Trotty Fast Polo These Days Meriden Was No Match for II er Last Night Tommy LXolderncss Played a Star Game Some of the Maine League Players Are Drifting Back Home. There was but a small crowd present to see the ganiB last night, mat is, it "was ji small crowd -i or aii'1'i..uiy. It would be called a big crowd in any of the other leagues. There were be tween 5UU and Una people there, but they saw a scientific inline of polo, and they saw the home team send the Mtvidens back over tin? mountains a. defeated team. It w;u a pretty fast j game in the first period and Ir looked ! as if the fast pace io!d on the local j boys more than on the visitors, and perhaps the period ended just in the right time. There was -mod .iugp-liug and good pas-sing en both sides, but the defense work of ilie Waierbury team proved lo much for the speedy rushers of the Meridens. ilcffcr nan was kevd mmsually busy si up ;ia g the drives iliai scc.neil ii come to him from all point.-- of the caue.

It is hard work playing polo at night after working and trav eling: over loo miles before going on the floor. Meriden Journal. There was something very wrong shout that cage in the south end of the building last night. Five balls were sent in there cleanly and clearly but out they popped as if there was no netting there to hold them in. Wa ierbury suffered four goals on that ac count. Dicky Pierce is a pretty good-natured ,c-liap and lie showed that fact last jiiglit when . lie was accidentally knocked down a couple of times. He only smiled at big Jean, who stood over liini-. Now, il' that was Wcdtke, he would be begging of the referee to call a foul. , There is no use in denying the fact, nor can wo be blamed for repeating t!c' assertion that Watcrbury as at present constituted has the best team in this league, yes, or in any- other league. Where can you beat the two Johnnies for rushers, and Jean for cen ter and Tommy for halfback and "foxy stonewall Pox" in the circle? "Wasn't Tommy ' IIold?nes, a. jewel last, night?

Salem, who nlprj smuted liim, was disgruntled by this move, and Manager Carroll refused to f-end his team on the" floor at Salem Monday night against Brockton. The game is therefore counted by the En terprise as forfeited to Brockton. Brockton Enterprise.

The Bigr Fight Will Uo on With out Interruption. The Mayor of Cincinnati lias Given His Word and Will Not Break It Eastern Men Will Manage and Bef eree In the New Western Club George Siddous AVins a Fight in the West Other Fight News of Interest. Cincinnati, Dec 27. The city offi cials, as well as the oflieers and mem bers of the Sai ngeriest Athletic club say there is no truth in the reports about the tight between James J. Jef fries and Gus linhliu, scheduled for February 15. in Cincinnati, being de clared off. Those in charge of the arrangements are proceeding with the remodelling ot the big Saengeriest had and with tneir ether plans. They have no intimation of any changes what ever in the program. Mayor Julius I-'leiscliinann last night said that lie had given his word lhat he would issue the permit for the tight anil that he - proposed to do so. V . M. Hobai l, pnsidout of ihe board of directors of the Saeugeifest Ath letic ciiib, saul that there was no doubt whatever about the light i. iking place here in February, ami that he eauM not understand why Wiliiam A. Brady had beau misadvised or mis ijimh il in New fork. President IIo bart expeois Manager Brady and oth ers hero the lirst ot next week. Gits li'.ildin has an option for training quarters on the Kentucky side of the river near the city, ami it as reported that Jeffries would train at West Ba den. T!u re is bllK r opposition to the fight here on 'ihe part of certain tiers, ins, and some of those in charge. of the ar rangements suspect I hat false infor mation may have born sent. Brady in the name of Ike club by some one who is not connected with it or in any manner authorized to speak for it. If there has been any such 1rick it will lie ferreted out when Manager Brady comes to collier with President Ho bari. In one of the New York afternoon papers of yesterday Mr Brady was iiuoieil as saying llia.l ihe light laid been declared off. Earlier in the day, however, lie was confident: that the light would be decided ill Cincin nati, as the following statement issued by him for publication will show: 'It lias been erroneously stated that T am to take the direct inn of a boxing dub in Cincinnati. Such is not the case. 1 have a.n arrangement, with the Convention Hall Co of that city wiKi.by 1 am to provide one evening of boxing in the mammoth Saeugeifest building, the profits accruing from the exhibition 10 go toward w iping out the Saetigeri'est delii it. The enterprise is to receive the recognition and moral support of most of the leading bank and business men in Cincinnati. There will lie only two exhibitions on tiie evening selected. February o, a twenty-round bout between James .1. Jeffries and fins Kuhlin and a pre liminary iiatit of ten rounds between two Weil known men to lie selected. As I understand it, there will be no continuance of star boxing exhibitions in Cincinnati after February 1", and surely none in Convention hall, as it is to be torn down and removed after February 1 ."."' NEW BONING CLI'B. James J. Kennedy, who so success fully managed the recent six day bi cycle race and who was at the head of the Twentieth Century Athletic club, which conducted the Fitzsim-mons-Itnhlin and Corhetr-MeCoy tights at Madison Sauare Garden lasr sum mer, will bo idrntiiied with a club that has been recently organized in San Francisco to promote glove contests. The sport in San Francisco prospered at one time, but it was not conducted on sportsmanlike lines and the sport ing public ceased to patronize the show s. . The men who are interested in this new club h.a.ve secured James J. Kenmdy because of the reputation lie enjoys among ihe rank and tiie of sports as being businesslike in and honest in his methods. When Ken nedy was iirst notified thai he was wanted in San Francisco to conduct th.e affairs of the new ciub he asked if lie could bring his own referee. AVhen he received a reply in the af firmative ha selected Charley White and then notified Ihe ciub that he would come on to conduct affairs. Kennedy ' sa id yesterday that he se lected White because cif his reputa tion for honesty. He said that there had in the past been a heap of trouble in bouts tliat were decided in Cali fornia, and all because of decisions rendered by the referee. The new dub. in which some of the most prom inent business .men of San Francisco are interested, have secured the Me chanics pavilion and bouts between iirst class boxers only will be booked. He expects to arrange the lirst light to take place- in February. ABOUT THE RINGSIDE. The limited round go between Tom my Kyan and Charde Burnos. which wits scheduled for Chicago en Satur day night next, has been postponed un'iit January VX. Owing to 1 lie fact that Kid Ashe of Cincinnati cannot get into shape the match between Ashe and Bobby Pobbs, which was to lie decided to night at Memphis, lias been postponed until January 13. The pair were billed to clash for twenty rounds. Tommy Byan says tliat he will meet Chiirlie McKeever of Philadelphia in this country if any of the clubs will hang up a good sized purse for lite fray. Kyan is willing to go to San Francisco or anywhere else if he ' is guaranteed enough money. Marty MeOuc, the 12i-ponnder, lias decided to ta!e a trip to San Francis co. McCue lias been promised several matches in the west and expects to leave for the Pacific const in a few weeks. Medio was-in Sou Francisco several years ago and won a good number of fights. Frank Childs. the western colored heavyweight, will not do any boxing for some time to come as he-broke his right hand during the recent mill with Pete Everett at Denver. Childs was matched to meet "Klondike," another colored heavyweight, but the accident has compelled him ta cancel ti is af fair. . '''- .',. V. Charlie Harvey is of the opinion that Martin Flaherty "is entitled to some recognition at the hands of the feath erweights and is prepared to match Flaherty 'against Ben Jordan, of Eng land, ilarvey says 'that if Terry Mc Govern refuses to co abroad and tackle the Englishman, Flaherty will go to England and take McGovern'a place. George Siddons, who had quite a reputation years ago as a clever f eatli- orweight, met Doc MeFeeters,. a west ern l'Jti-pounder, in private near Cleve land the other night. They agreed to fight eight rounds for a purse of $23. MeFeeters did well in the first round, but in the second he grew careless and was knocked out with a right swing on the jaw . A well known Boston sport has of fered to furnish a building and equip it with all the latest exercise para phernalia for Gearge Dixon." He wants to start the former feather weight champion with a school tor phys.cal culture. If Dixon accepts the place will be located in Boston. DiXou would make an excellent' box ing instructor, as he is still extremely lcever. There is some talk of arranging a battle between Kid Lavigue and Terry McGovern, to be decided at Louisville. Lavigne has been train ing ouite hard of late, and it is said, that the former lightweight champion is in great trim. Lavigne fights in the same aggressive manner as Terry. does and th("sports think that a battle be tween the. twain ought to be interest ing. Otto Cribb, who declares that he is the champion middleweight of Austra lia, has arrived in this country. The oilier night Cribb was tried out against Fiank MeCcnnell at. San Francisco. McConncll is one of the best known middlewoights on the Pacific coast, and when east last year met Jimmy Handler and Mysterious Billy Smith. Cribb proved to be an exceptionally goad man, for lie knocked McConnell out in four rounds. Cribb is ready to box any lo-l-pouuder. Peter Jackson seems to be getting along well these (lays in Australia. In a letter to Sam Fitzpa trick the noted colored heavyweight write.-! tliat lie has recovered his health again and that he is as strong as he ever was. Jackson says that lie lias a boxing school and has many pupils. He also writes that the game is tucking fp in Australia and that several clever big fellows are springing up. It is Jack son's intent ion as soon as lie gets enough money together to return to America. AIMERICA AT THE FRONT. F.nroiJe Tteecs'ii tes tlie Fnct Tlint We Have pxpamled. BERLIN, I).-c. 27. In its yearly finan cial review ihe Frank fur! or Zeituag points out that: one of the most impor tant facts of the last 1 12 inmuhs has been the growing iniiuenco of tli United ' States tifiLiu the economic situation of Europe. "lu the lirst monllis of tls" year," snys tile writer, "when (jeinian industries hid not tiie remotest fear of reaction, it was the report from America regarding the iron market, and the fear nf Hooding the Geiman market: with American manu factures that, territied oi.r markets and agitated our bourses. This was tiie case even when there were no important, chancres in the business situation in the United States. In short, all the incidents indicating, however remotely, that coun try's competition were, discussed in their bearings upon our business situation, and they thus became very important factors in determining the attitude of the Ger man bourses and tiie quotation of secu rities. "Wall street Quotations frequently be came Ihe standard for all other ex changes. The entrance nf the United States into t bo ranks of creditor nations signifies a change in the times. Ever since t'ae war will: Spain the United States government lias pursued tmdevi atingly a world policy of world conquest. European states must familiarize them selves wilh the thought tliat tile United States will have a very weighty word in determining the new political constella tions among the leading nations. Amer ican action in undertaking the Nicaragua canal also proves that the military, and still more the diplomatic, participation of the United States in the chief troubles shall iliear fruit." Loners In Ilie I'liilippincs. WASHINGTON, Dec. 1!7. - An ap pended report to General Mat-Arthur's review of the civil affairs of the Philip pines for the past fiscal year gives some rather .startling facts regarding the intro d'.'ction and prevalence of leprosy in the i-hicds.

The leaders of the Protective asso ciation of Professional "Baseball Players are trying to lind out, they say, whether the members of tin; organisa tion want to indulge in warfare or not in tiie event of a further lurudown at, the hands of the National league. Some players lia.ve replied to the circular let ter sent otW. by President Zimnier and Secretary .Jennings that they will stick it. out to the end if they are ordered to keep from signing for a year lliey will "go to work."' Oilier players, it appears, are not. so anxious for trouble and believe tliat it is best to get as much salary as they can for next year. The talk of a salary limit in the Na tional league of ,c'2.(Hi'i has been the cause of much speculation among tiie players, also some little apprehension. Some of the "real anarchists.,'' among the players want: 1o declare war at once and sicn contracts witli tiie American league. From the way they talk tiny would prefer to play for Si. 200 in the American league as a "matter of principle" than for 2.000 in Ihe National league. The argument offered by" the "anarchists" to the other players is that if they want: to belli Ban .lohnson beat the National league 1hcy must lie ready to sacrifice their own pockets. "Be willing to shoulder some of the losses,"' say the "an archists' to Ilieir companions, "ami then when the profits come later, be ready 1o share them." Altogtlier the ball players are in a quandary, out of which they will doubtless ennv-ge when snowballs bec;ome scarce.- :l mag nates are banking on one tliY. tiie players' pockets. 'Once empty." say iho' club owners, "the pockets of Ihe players cause a longing 1o get. back to'the captain's office on the lirst and lifteenth of each momli. The players know they are well paid and that's why they-do not know what action to take in tiie face of a cold turndown from the league. It. is understtod tliat the Brooklyn baseball club's deal with Detroit, whereby Detroit hoped to get John Anderson, is off. Anderson iias been playing with Worcester of ihe Eastern league, yml Worcester needs him to cover first base. Detroit at lirst offer ed President C. If. Ebbett ifSoO for Anderson, but later there was some hitch iii the negotiations. If Worces ter offers the same amount, the offer nrobably would bo accepted. "( Vms'tlering the length of time lie has depended on speed."' said Mana ger H.-inlon of the Brooklyn recently, "Kid Nichols of the Bostons has last ed wonderfully well. He came into the league in 3-S'd and has been work ing steadily ever siinee. He is not a big man, physically, yet he is one of the swiftest, pitchers in the profession. Speed has boon his standby and con trol, too. He- has stood the wear and tear in such a way as to excite admira tion. It H seldom that speed pitchers last a fellow iwlio conies into the league with an iron arm and cannon ball speed soon feels the strain and lakes up change of pace. Mercer of New Y'ork is a striking illustration of what: I mean. But Nichols, strange to say. has never devolved a slow- ball, used by every other pitcher in tiie league. Nick lias also depended sole ly on the overhand delivery, which js particularly hard on the fthc'iiiner muscles. Every ball lie delivers to the batsman romes-froni above his should er. McGimiity of the Brooklyus. on the 'oilier baud, showed this year now to save himself wMb underhand de livery. The 'Iron Man' set an exam ple for the other twirlers in Ilie league who want to preserve their salary wings as long as possible, and it wouldn't surprise me nt all to find nearly every box man using an under hand ball next season.

The paucity and obscurity of the dispatches from South Africa give rise to renewed anxiety. Ap parently the disturbed area of Cape Colo ny extends farther south than it did last December, and Lord Kitchener does not appear to have had much success as yet in driving back the invaders. The war oftiee had received no news last evening of the reported capture ot yeomanry near Britsto ,vn. A Burghersilorp dispatch has a myste rious reference to "an unfortunate mis taking of the enemy for Brabant's Horse," which resahed in the pounding of "Cease fire'." and enabled the Boers to oeen:,y all the conun.anding positions, the British rcliriiis from u difficult: predica ment. General Clements' success against the Boot--; i:i the M-i;; liiasb.-rg region is also doubtful, the last dispatch reporting tbat "it was considered advisable not to force the Boers from 1hv;r position.-!."'
