it lias keen riiiibed intj the home Play
ers a couple of t.ms tuy are
awakened to the fact tuat tucy are
up against a rough house game aud
the- consequences are the rough house
is not all on one side. Such was the
case last night aud Hartford touud
before she had progressed" very far
that she had players against her who
were not afraid of a little brush, and,
in fact, delighted iu a "bit of a scrap."
Holderuess was, however, guilty of
the first foul, but it was not an abu-
' Hive foul, simply preventing Lewis
from scoring a goal. It was loft for
Harney Doherty to enrage the 'Water
bury players, and lie did it so well
that he got each member of the team
looking for him. Griffin followed him
all night long and when iu tight places
Harney looked for scrap lie got it. and
got it "hard. too. He made one delib
erate foul that was not called by ltef
oree Leahey, but the spectators went
wild over it. Russell has bicu un
well for a couple of days and he should
not have been in the game last night,
but he was with boih feet. Doluriy
got him against the fence and pushed
him against -it hard,, and Russell, un
able to defend himself, weut to the
floor and remained there, lnnuulatj
ly .there was an outbreak aud but for
the cooler heads iu the audience some
of the spectators- would have been
over the fence and on top of the wh.te
haired tighter of the Hartford team.
It was work like this that went on all
through the game anH Doherty was
hissed and hooted continually. Some
of the Waterbury players made up
their minds to give Doherty all he was
looking for, ami the consequences were
that Jean and Griffin were placed iu
the -foul column. These, with the foul
of Holderr.e?s. took a goal from Wa
terburvi but we could afford to lose a
goal to tPaeh the pugilists from Hart
ifcrd a lesson. Doherty had been pon-
' nl&rd twice for his rough work, and
h? shouted murder aud at once went
ia to win the game himself, and stir?
( uei-gh he ariir:l the ball the whole
h ::g:h-of t'ae floor an.l caged it. Even
thotxli llit-f dirt dL-like his rough tac
tics he wa'-i given credit for this.
W. CVtc was s.inealiug again all dt:r n,
thrjr.iU'.e and "when a foul was ea'hd
on miiici' srcttlcg into Griffin, ho, too,
shouted murder. " This was the work
that was gt-ing on all night and Do
liertv fought every man in the Water

referee, he was so wild with madness.

(nincS as follows: With both teams

a' particularly uneventful one. excent

Billy Parsons was right in the game
last night, and the three goals he
made brought back recollections of the
old days when the goal tenders feared
him more than any rusher in the
league. ' -
Griffin showed the sand. he Is made
of when he refused to be made a toy
of by Dohertv. The' white-headed
scrapper from Hartford found he was
running up against a pretty hard prep
osition. Nov Haven has been here this week
witli a gang of fighters, ami Hartford
was litre last night with another ag
gregation of the same sort, yet they
svpro both sent home after being beat
en nt their own game.
Billy Parsons says that his Law
rence venture has netted him $800 thus
far this season. Judging by recent
events. B'lly will have to transfer his
team to Springfield, nolyoke. or some
other place if he intends to retain that
amount of money. Hartford Post.
According to the Lawrence Ameri
can New Britain will be admitted to
the major league this week,-and the
players will be: McGilvray and Hip
son, rushers; Murtagh, -center; Con
way, halfback,- and Burgess, goal.
That team would surely cause some
violent trouble around the circuit.
It only needed Knobby Kuowlton
here last night to have a good free
light. If Barney Doherty went up
against Knobby the way he did
against the Waterbuiy players last
night he would have found himself
mixed up iu as lively a scrap as was
ever witnessed on the polo floor.
Waterbury has reached the top
after weeks of floundering at the rear
and the town seems to have gone daft.

that is some kind of a fish, isn't it?
Well, of all the '-fishy" teams Hart

The New Haven Register called the
Waterbury team "Billy Parson's
Ruffians." That seems a little strong,
when New Haven has two of the
roughest players in the league in
Whipple and Bone. The Filipino had
three fouls, called on him in less than
ten minutes in Hartford Tuesday
night. Hartford Post,
Tom Cotter was forced to leave the
floor again last night because of a bad
leg. The big fellow says that he
handicaps his team sometimes. He
says that this leg which troubles him
becomes cold and numb, and that is
the reiison he weut to the floor so
often last night. He is looking for a
good center to take his place.
Little Fox was again, a star in the
goal circle last night, and he kept the
Hartford team in a crazy mood, so
easily did he stop the drives made at
him. He allowed none of the Hart
fords to keep in front of him, either,
for he pushed them around the cage,
and in fact he played as brilliant a
game as 5'ou would like to witness.
The players of the Southeastern
league who would be able to hold th7ir
own in major league company can be
counted on one's Angers. Denny Bart

might be able to catch on somewhere

What's the mgttef with the sporting
writer of the Br dgeport Post? Will
some one please tell him that Griffin
is playing polo better than any second
rush at present wielding the hockey,
and that Waterbury is at th? head of
the league standing. Also inform liim
-hat Waterbury won from Meriden
Thursday night in the Silver city, so
that he can tell his readers about it.
Here are a few comments on the
game in Meriden from the Meriden
Johnny Russell was foolish enough
to attempt to rough-it with Gentle
Willie -AVhiting.' He soon got over
the idea. .
Waterbury has a great polo team in
Fred Jean'is always dangerous when
he has the ball in his- wizard's crook.
. If it had not been for the great
work required Waterbury would have
gone home full of holes.
Besides being a first class goal tend
er Fox has more luck than Billy , Mur
ray. . England and Ireland had a clash
when Holderness and Griffin came
near punching each other's heads off,
because each- thought the other was a
Meriden player when they came.to
eether. Ireland got .over the shock
first and laughed at the blunder but
England hung its head and looked
dogged. - -
Griffin played the' best game last
nleht he ever played In the Meriden

FIGHTERS FOR ENGLAND.
Dr A. P. Ordway, American repre
sentative of the National Sporting
club, London, has written to Balti
more making propositions for fights
in London between Ben Jordan, the
English featherweight champion, and
Harry Lyons, and between the winner
of the Johnnie Hughes-Pat Daly bout
that is to take place next month and
Joe Gans. The letter was the result
of negotiations that have been on for
a month with the object of having the
two colored fighters make a trip to
England for fights with the English
champions. On receipt of5 Dr Ord
way's letter Manager Herford wrote
a reply, containing a proposition for
battles between the colored men and
the Englishmen. Herford agreed to
have Lyons meet Ben Jordan at 124
pounds for any distance battle the
winner to take all the purses and re
ceipts of all sorts, and the loser, if
it should be Lyons, to get nothing.
Herford wrote the same sort of propo
sition for Gnns to meet the winner of
the Hughes-Daly fight that is to take
place next month. The battle weight
for the later contest, Herford stipu
lated, was to be 133 pounds, weighing
in at noon, as is the custom in Eng
land. From negrotiations that have
preceded the letter Herford believes
that he.; is surely in for a trip abroad.
M COY MEANS IT.
On Thursday night McCoy deposited
a certified check of $5,0W) with Thom
as F. Shay of Cincinnati, as a forfeit
to challenge Vie winner of the Ruhlin
.Teffries battle. McCoy says that he
is in better health than he ever was
in his life and that he means business.
"If it cannot be arranged for me to
meet Jeffries or Ruhlin I will be ready
to tackle Choynski or any other. good
man," said the Kid. "I think it would
be a good idea if the managers of the
bout at - Cincinnati put on nn extra
mill, say on the day before or follow
ing the Ruhlin and Jeffries battle. 1
am ready for any one, whether he is
big or little."
COST OF SEEING BIG BOUT.
The scale of prices for the Jeffries
Ruhlin contest at Cincinnati has- been
determined upon. The same , prices
which have been in voguror the big
contests in Madison Square Garden,
New Yoi'k, will be- charged. The
cheapest seat will be .f.j and the best
$35. But few applications have been
made for the $0 seats, though several
hundred persons have applied for the
best seats in the hall. The chart -will
be completed within a few days, and
seats will be placed on sale on Janu
ary 13. The location of the ring is
still in doubt. If possible; it-will be
placed in the center of the hall, but
under existing circumstances a num
ber of seats in the rear of the bal
cony and gallery will be shut off from
a full view of the ring. . This will
necessitate a dhange in the arrange
ment of these seats if the ring is
placed in the center of the hall. It
has been suggested tiiat the ring will
be built out from the front of the
stage, and this play may be followed.
" BRADY TALKS OF BIG FIGHT.'
Cincinnati, Jan 5. W. A. Brady ar
rived here yesterday afternoon, ac
companied by his wife aud. his assist
ant. Ed Cook. Brady at once assumed
active control of the arrangements
for the big fight. He will return to
New York to-morrow evening If possi
ble, but Cook will remain to represent
him on the spot. Brady says: "The
Saengerfest people have a forfeit of
5.000 pasted and I have no doubt but
that they will fulfil the part of the
contract and that the fight-will take
place. Jeffries will probably go into
training next Sunday at' Alleuhurst,
N. J. He will easily be able to get
into the best of condition.; In time.

SLOW BICYCLE RACE.
The Six Day Riders Are Doing a Lot
Boston, Jan 5. -The bicycle riders
pedaled leisurely tlong all afternoon,
and they maintained about the same
pace in the evening. 1 Thp spectators
had honed that the "race" would be
enlivened by occasional sprints, but
nothing so unreasonable occurred. As
a result, the men were all in good con
dition, as well they might be, as the
pace certainly has not been the' one
that kills. - -
At the end of the forty-ninth hour
the scores were as follows:
McEachern in the lead, Kaser, Wai
thour, Stinson, McLean, Downey and
Fisher, all 901) miles 2 laps; Babcock,
908 miles G laps;- Muller, 899 miles.
The track was in a slippery condi
tion when the riders came out for the
start early in the afternoon, aud for
the first hour they rode around on the
fiat, first agreeing that no one should
hurry himself, aud that laps gained
should not couut. When they went
up on the Incline the racers moved
along a little' faster. The SOOth mile
was passed in 42 hours, 41 minutes
and 32 seconds, with McEachern in the
lead. Even the hour before recess
did not bring .out a sprint, although
the sjpeed throughout was fair. Mc
Eachern led at the finish, with Stinson
In the evening racing began the
forty-sixth hour and McEachern set
the pace at 7:0G. A little later Bab
cock was permitted to lead for nearly
the first hour, at the end of which
McEachern went to the front again.
Kaser led at the -850th mile in 45
hours, 35 minutes and 68 seconds.
In the way of diversion Albert
Champion, the French rider, did an
exhibition mile on his moter cycle in
1:37 4-5, against his mile last summer
at Charles River park in 1:2(5. narry
Elkes next came out and made the
mile in 1:45 3-5, the poorest of his ex
hibitions this week.
Another feature was a heat of a
match between Cadvrell and Van Cott,
the latter rider winning easily. Cad
well won the second heat. Stinsov
had a fall and the two riders had .t
slow up to get around him in the first
heat. Stinson received a bad cut on
the left hip and was off the track for
some time. Kaser led at the 8Qpth
mile in 4S hours, 27 minutes, 8 2-5 sec
onds. . -
Without any warning at 10:55 Bab
cock cut loose, and. before either the
crowd or riders knew what had hap
pened he was some distance ahead of
the bunch, and at the end of three laps
was wiih'n ten fett of the rear guard.
None of the "men made serious efforts
to catch the runaway.' -The lap and
along with tf the $20 offered to the
first man to gain a lap, were to all in
dents and purposrs a gift to Babcdek
from the other riders.. -
The scores at the fiftieth hour and
the finish, of the night were as fol
lows: McEachern leading. Kaser, Stinson,
Downey, Fisher. McLean and Wal
thour all 92S milps 5 laps; Babcock,
928 miles 1 lap; Muller, 918 miles 3
