i- ! , - t,, I . . . . Another Rough Exhibition! Polo With Hartford. Barney Doherty Tries to Use McGov em Tactics and Is Put Off the Floor Spectators Break Down the Hail ing Trying to Get at Him Seven , Fouls Cailed During the ' Game Hartford Loses a Goal On Fouls New Britain Has the Meriden Team. If the people of Waterbury are look tog for rough polo, they are getting it novr in about every game that is played. Polo patrons are a peculiar people sometimes, however, and that fact was evidenced last night when Barney Doherty. the "Albino" haired scrapper from Hartford was told to go to his dressing room and ponder on the acts of which he had been guilty. Seven-eighths of that big crowd of people had shouted for the removal of Barney when he was discovered trying to find a soft spot on Russell's face that he could make an Impression on "Tith his hands or hockey, but those even-eigths yearned for Barney's re turn after the game had been resumed without him, for the scenes of wild excitement had disappeared and 1lie game appeared altogether too tame. In fact, would remind you of the sort of football games you may get it" the Chicago rules are adopted. The fight occurred in the second period. Waterbury had walked away with Hartford" in the first period and had- made seven to two when that period was over. In the second period after Griffin had made another. Cotter and Wodtke took a hand in the game and soon had added two to their score. This made the Hartfords put a little more life into their game and the con sequences resulted in a fight. Russell went into Doherty at the lower right hand corner of the rink and Barney didn't like the way Bob did it, for he buckled into Itussell and was playing a tatoo, or trying to. on Russell's head and face when Griffin flew to the res cue. He seized Barney by the back of the neck and yanked him of, and by this time all the polo players had got into a. bunch in the corner and the referee was trying to prevpnt a free, fight. But this was not all. for as soon as the spectators realized what was happening there came a yell that startled even the players thomeslves. Tp rose the crowd in the Carson City seats and down against the netting they went with a bang and out went a portion of the netting. From the side, near the press box came another yell and a crash and down went a portion of the fence, and - the crowd nas getting ready to swarm onto the floor when cooler heads took a hand in the game and the trouble was avert ed. Several of the attendants rushed to the scene and soon had the fence in place and the netting straightened out. The polo players " themselves realized that the thing had gone far enough, for they cooled down and ar gued the matter out with the referee. All this time, however, the crowd kept shouting to have Doherty put oft" the floor and perhaps it was to appease the spectators that Referee Lush did finally order him off the surface. Bar ney went off smiling, but he probably was thinking what a glorious time he would have when Waterbury played in Hartford the next time. Main came on and took Doherty's place but the- interest in the game had died out, for Waterbury bad too much of a lead and scored at will. Fouls were plentiful and seven was the total of the night. Hartford losing a goal on fouls. That made no differ ence with the game, however, for Wa terbury could have won against any team last night. The score and sum mary: . Waterbury. Position. Hartford.

A little, roughness is not a detriment to a polo player, but when it comes to fighting that should be cut out and cut out quick. Already plans are "under way for a great National league next season. Meriden will not be included in the number if the- plans : mature. ' There will be Hartford, New Haven, Water bury, Springfield, Bridgeport, New Britain and perhaps one other. Massa chusetts city. Tom Cotter worked harder last night than in any game that he has played here this season, but he could not stem the tide that was bearing his players out into the storm. The big fellow seems to be disliked by many of the fans in this city, but there is no reason for it because he is a pret ty good sort of chap on and off the floor. New Britain should turn out a big crowd on Saturday night, when the first game is played there. Waterbury will .be the team that will cross hock eys with the new New Britain team, and the fans over there should be de lighted to see Parsons. Russell, Jean, Griffin, Holderness and Fox. The New Britains will try hard to. win their first game and there is an aggregation in that team that can play if they try too. ' What a mistake it was to place the Springfield team in Meriden. Meriden has always been a dead sporting city unless her team was at the head. They are a lot of quitters over there if the team is losing. It was always so in hasp, ball, football, and now it has come true in polo. It should be a good sporting city, for it is large enough, but for some reason or other it is not. If the National league goes under Meriden will be to blame. The Eagles of this city are fast climbing the ladder of fame and they will soon reach the top round jf they continue to play such brilliant polo as was furnished "to the spectators who went down to the West End rink last night to witness the game against the Stars of Oakville, one of the best quin tets hereabouts, but they mot their match in the Eagles last night. The passing of both teams was excellent uid received much rncriteu appiaue from those present. It was one ot tne hottest contests yet played on the rink in a long time. It took litteen minutes to cage the first ball, so it will be seen. that the players were doing all in their power to keep the rubber out of the cage. Manager Lynch fools very proud of the victory, and justly so. "and now his team is looking for other scalps. Although young, the Eagles are a fine set of polo player.-, and are bound to prove of value to some big team later on. The score ended (i to 1 in favor of the local team. SOME WRESTLING NOTES. John E. Kelly Is Now After Professor Mayser, the Naugatuck Instructor. John E. Kelly wont to Naugatuck this morning to make a match with Mayser, the Naugatuck wrestler, if pos sible. Ho brought along With him several of the "long green" and will de posit it in the hands of the sporting editor of the Naugatuck News. This sum will be $25, which will be for a forfeit for $100, or more if necessary, that Kelly can throw Mayser. Julian is anxious to bring his big Turk to Brockton and pit him against Parker. The latter will wait and get a line on the young giant before he gives his answer. What has become of the backers of George Bothner of New York? Are they laying low or have they given up the idea of backing the New Yorker against Kelly? There is one match that would draw out a crowd, and should be an interesting one. Evidently they don't place much con fidence in Harvey Parker and John Little in Pawtucket. The Times, of that city, intimates that both have been mixed up in funny games. Well, it is the easiest game in the world to fake, and perhaps thev have done u little of it Faust's manager wanted Parker to wrestle Graeco-Roman. also to praeti cally agree- to lose. Parker dropped negotiations "with Mr Manager. Parker may meet the big fellow in New York and perhaps arrange for a catch-as- cateh-can match, although it is evident Faust lias a great deal of respect, for the Brockton man and may refuse to wrestle that style Harvey Parker has received a letter from Dr D. A. Sargent of the Hem enway gymnasium, narvard college. stating that he was desirous to arrange for instruction in wrestling among some of the students, and asking if Parker would consider a proposition to. act as instructor. Parker will have an interview with Dr Sargent to-mor row Brockton Enterprise. , Alex Swanson has been hoard from, and he would like to wrestle Kelly, but he can not get the backing that is necessary. He would wrestle, how. ever, for. the Winner to take all the gate receipts, but Kelly won't have anything .like that, because when he came to settle up he might find that the gate receipts would not cover the expenses. There must be a money consideration or Swanson will not be taken on. Parker will have to train but very little to get down to the 140 pounds required for his match with Kelly Her is in fine form now, stronger and better than he has been since his un fortunate trip to Baltimore. If he can clear up enough wealth this win ter he will go across the water again, probably, and carry out the program ho had last year. Parker' thinks there is an excellent field there for a good wrestler and Intends to make the most of it Brockton Times. - ...... . . ' ' .'- , 7 "; If I.lfe "Were. All Plnr.

He Likes Sparring Matters, But Says the Fakirs Killed the Game Der laney Says Jeffries Will WTin By a Knockout Autopsy on' the Dead Boxer Showed ' a Hemorrhage It Does Not Look Bright For Dan Stuart Another Pugilist Is In the Hospital. Chicago, Jan 10. Before Vice-Pres ident-elect Roosevelt left Chicago to hunt big game in the "Rockies he had a chat with George Siler,' the veteran pugilistic referee, on the subject of boxing. Siier tells the story of the conversation as follows:" '"You love clean sport and so do I," commented the ex-governor. "Now, on that basis and understanding I will begin our chat by asking what you think of Jeffries as a fighter?" '"I think he is great," I replied. "And so do I," he said. "Don't you know, Siler, that boxing might have been going on in New York right now if the men who had charge of the game had handled it with care?" Of course I answered in the nfflrma-. tive. "Look at that McCoy-Chonynski contest. Wasn't that enough to kill the sport?"' "I told him I thought it was. "I liked McCoy," he continued, "and thought he would best Corbett. He is equally as clever as Corbett and a harder hitter. He has the right idea of hitting, too, has he not?" I told him I was sure he had. '"Now, there's Fitzsimmons," Mr Roosevelt continued. "He is a good honest fighter, don't you think so? And Ruhlin is another honest tighter, and so is Jeffries; but I'll te).l you, iMler, there are only a lew ot tueiu and you know it just as well as I do. Now, about that fight between Jef fries and Sharkey. It became a brutal affair after the twenty-third, and. as Sharkey had no chance, you should have stopped it." It was a championship fight, Mr Roosevelt," I said, "and if I had stopped it the crowd would have .lumped into the ring and torn me limb from limb. "Torn you limb from limb, would they? Well, I tell you. Siler, if I had been referee and stopped it thev would not have torn me limb from limb," he said, gritting his teeth. "When I was at the head of th police department in New York I did some things some persons did not like. When I was in charge of the police I witnessed the Maher-Choynski fight. That Was a hard fight, but it was so evenly con tested I could not stop it." This will be news to the thousands who gathered at the ringside on Coney Island on that memorable night to see Sharkey and Jeffries fight. -Governor Roosevelt himself wasn't there, and so speaks only from hearsay. He evi dently has been misinformed, for in the opinion of some of the leading ex perts Sharkey not only was entitled to at least a draw at the end of the twenty-fifth round, but undoubtedly would have had the decision at the end of the twenty-third. The former governor of New York hit closer to the bull's eye when he characterized the McCoy-Corbett fight as a "sell-out" and asserted that "there are only a few honest fight ers." DELANEY SAYS JEFFRIES SURE. William Delanev. who will train Chamnion Jeffries for his coming bat tle with Gus Ruhlin at Cincinnati. savs that the boilermaker will win with a knockout. "I seconded Jef frie:?." - said Delanev the other day. "when he fought that twenty-round draw with Ruhlin in California. The big fellow was in rather poor shape physically, and quite green as to the fine points of boxing. In spite of the handicap, however, the Akron man was lucky to get a draw. Jeffries is a better boxer to-day than he was then and he will beat Ruhlin with a knockout. The champion is unques tionably the hardest hitter in the ring to-day "and can take more punishment than anv other heavyweight in ; the world. Nobody has ever been able to hit him hard enough to send him to the boards and he has received some nretlv hard knocks. Ruhlin is a big. strong, husky fiellow and pretty clever He lias learned a lot since ho fought Jeffries on the coast, and will proba blv make a good showing in the ear lier" rounds, but Jeff will eventually bent him down, just as he did Fitz simmons and Corbett. Jeffries's pre paration for the battle will be ar ranged on a systematic basis. Ho will devote certain hours a day to sev eral forms of athletic exercise. He Will box. wrestle, punch the bag, toss the medicine ball, work the wrist ma chine, take long wnlks, ride the wheel and row on the lake. He 'will' be in perfect condition when he enters the ring at Cincinnati. Jeffries weighs now, before beginc-'ng work, about 235 pounds. He will tip the beam: at about 212 the day before the mill, if nothing happens. He weighed 208 when he whipped Fitzsimmons. 212 when he outpointed Sharkey and 215 in his battle with Corbett. He will not have much trouble in reducing as he is a hard worker and is an excellent judge of his own condition." AUTOPSY SHOWS HEMOERIIAGIe, Phillipsburg, Jan 10. Acting under instructions from Prosecutor Angle, Drs Reese and Barber of this place and Dr Roberts of Easton mad an autopey upon the body i of Frank Welch, the dead pugilist,- yesterday morning, and then went to Belvidere to present their report to the grand jury. No inquest was held by ' the coroner. The prosecutor deemed such a proceeding. unnecessary as the grand Jury is ready to go ahead at once with the investigation after receiving - the report of the post mortem examina tion. The body of Welch was sent to Philadelphia yesterday afternoon in charge of Charles Huegas, a brother- in-law. Dr William II. V. Neff, Ed ward Madden and " Miss - Katherine Grabf elder, , the sister of Welch, ac companied the , body,- The - physicians learned that the death of Welch was due to. hemorrhage" .of tlie brain and will so report V Dr W. H. C. Neff, one of the fight "promoters, was released from la ii yesterday 'in kjuu Dan fur nished by his 3 brother., Lewis Inr- lachee of Philadelphia, one of the pro moters of the fight and Ralph Helm bach of this city, one of the seconds, J who am waatl by the authorities, . NOT BOSY, FOR STUART. . "Is Jeffries going to meet any 'one. else in . the' near - future?" Manager Brady was asked. .."You;-may-, state that Jeffries will not meet any pugilist at Carson City under the management of Dan Stuart. Ho prefers to go to San Francisco, where the law allows sparring matches under proper regula tions. If he spars in San Francisco it will either be under the management of J. C. Kennedy of New York or J. J. -Groom of San Francisco. At pres ent it is hardly likely that the cham pion will consent to meet Fltzsimmons at all. Jeffries offered a match to Fitzsimmons and he did not see fit to accept it at that time, and now he will have to wait until Jeffries is ready to meet him. Jim is now in a position to do a little dictating himself." Mar tin Julian says-there will be no fights at Carson unless he is consulted. "1 own half the arena at that point, the construction of which cost JfO.OUO. 1 will have something to say when it is proposed to hold a fight there." From which it can be seen that Mr Stuart's pathway is not so smooth as it might be. NOT A FATAL FIGHT. Atlantic CHy, Jan 10. Louis Ma- jane, and Charles Abramowltz fought here Tuesday night at the Atlantic City A. C. The police stopped the bout in the tenth round, and Majane, who became unconscious, was removed to the hospital. Abramowltz was ar rested, as Majane appeared to be in a precarious condition. Mayor Franklin P. stov personally investigated tne fight and ho is of the opinion that Ma jane is not severely hurt but that he collapsed .through . overexertion, and that with proper medical treatment ne will be able to leave the hospital in a few days. At the hospital last even ing ot was said that Majane received a hard punching, and that the blood which smeared his face an(J covered his bodv issued from the nose and not from a ruptured blood vessel as was first supposed. Chief of Police Eld- ridsre last nislit-appeared beiore Re corder Robert Stephany and charged Abramowltz with prize fighting, which is a statutory offense. Abramowltz was released after entering $500 bail for a hearing Friday. Chief Eldridge says he will make a similar complaint against Majane when discharged from the hospital nnd that the effect of the prosecution means the stopping of such exhibitions in this city.- CLUB WILL FIGHT.

' . . - ""Look here," continued the officer, in a louder tone, ''don't you hear me tell ing1 you to get a move on? Do you think this is an all-night saloon? You've been standing1 on this corner for an hour and a half. . Three times I've been along, and each time I've noticed you in this same spot.

Come, don't be obstinate, "THEN COME ALONG." or I'll have to run you in, and I'd rath er see you take a walk." The man, says the Chicago Chronicle, did not take the trouble to turn his head, much less reply to the volubil ity of the policeman. The latter waxed angry. "Probably you think you are one of the elites that live on the Lake Shore drive," he shouted in the ear of the man. "I don't care a red cent if you're a royalty of Europe traveling incog. I'll run you in sure as my name's Bill O'Hoolahan if you don't get a quick move on yourself. You won't? The come along." Grasping the arm of the man, whi would neither move nor speak, ths bluecoat turned him around with ft vicious jerk and looked in his f&oe. Then he let drop the arm, while a lonk of disgust spread over his face. The "man" was a clothing dummy leftthex by some college boys out for a timi. Its face was of wax, and bore a grin that struck deep into the soul of Offi cer O'Hoolahan. "That settles it," he exclaimed. "I'll arrest you anyway." - The owner of the dummy may find it at the East Chicag-o station, but not in a cell, for the sergeant refused to book the prisoner. TROUBLE OR A WOMAN. Gets Into a Jam Jty Trying? to Polish D. Silk. Waist Trith Gasoline and Kerosene. Down in Auburn Park lives a pretty housewife who has added one more to her list of "dont's." It is this, says the-Chicag-o Chronicle: "Don't -clean a. silk waist with gaso line until the stuff has been chemical ly analyzed." A week ago while overhauling her wardrobe,' she-found two silk waistsi dainty affairs with lace and things all over them and a number of pretty ribbonswhicb .she decided would look much better after being treated .vith gasoline. That treacherous stuff, by the way, is nearly every woman's . HER LITTLE MISTAKE. panacea for everything- that requires cleaning, except teeth. -The girl was dispatched for the -gasoline to a neighboring grocery not the one at which the family trades and it-proved to be a hole-in-the-wall sort of place, more given to the sale of mackerel and debilitated eggs than anything else. Blithesome the .girl returned with, a bottle of gasoline, and the woman who had determined to clean things up a bit dumped the stuff into a big pan and asked her hus band to stand by in case of an explo sion. If she left the house she evi dently wanted him to go with her. Into the pan of gasoline she soused the delicate waists, and after they were lifted out the ribbone went in, while an awful aroma permeated everything-. . The husbanj . was too busy, to see the finish, but when he returned that night he heard the story. "1 thought that stuff smelled sort of funny," said the indignant light of the' household; "what do you think? It's about half kerosene, and every thing I put Into it is ruined." It was not the husband's turn to say any thig-, but '. what he . thought about that grocer was sufficient. : "I don't suppose there'a any. use suing the fellow," said the wife, sug gestively. , V ..- - - :; "No; if we won the case he would have to' turn over his grocery to na," said her husband, "and that would be worse luck than we've had.".
