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

rushers of the Meridens. ilcffcr

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

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
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

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

bearings upon our business situation, and
they thus became very important factors
in determining the attitude of the Ger

European states must familiarize them
selves wilh the thought tliat tile United
States will have a very weighty word in

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. Even Nichols
may fall in line, too."

LONDON, Dec. 27. 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.-!."'
