Uninteresting Game

Goal for Xew Haven But One Foul
Called During the Game Rumors
About the New Britain Team In
teresting Xotes About Polo.
The game of polo at the rink last
ight was dead slow, so the majority
of people who were present said ou
their way from the building after the
game was orer. "Xew Haven was
too dead easy," was another remark
that was .heard on all sides coming
from the same place, and it was so,
too. There was but one really re
markable feature in the whole game
and that was the goal tending of Chat-
field of AVaterbury. Xew Haven came
to "Waterbury minus the services of
Whipple and Hausman, the reserve
man. It was expected that Whipple
would arrive on the 9 o'clock train, but
he failed to make good and consequent
ly Lations had to play at halfback and
Chatfield was pressed into service to
play in the goal circle. Lations could
have done no better work than this
Bame Chatfield stopping of apparent (
goals. Neither team seemed to show
any aggressiveness and the only time
that any apparent life was put in the j
game was when Bone would cany the
ball down the rink and try for a goal.
The local players knew that they had
a cinch and they took things easy. It
was not a rough game, and" the only
foul was one called on Lations for
holding one of the locals on the floor.

Whipple failed to put in an appear--anee
last night and it was all caused,
they say, by' reason of the Elks' social
session. Jimmy Canavan looked an

things to the Xew Haven halfback
when next they meet.
. That was a clever game of Bone's
when he got the rush several times last
night. He kept bounding the ball to
ward the Waterbury cage, and got it
there, too, but it always went up
against our lively little goal tender and
the trick was exploded.

Manager Parsons of the Waterbury
team on Wednesday evening said that

elaboration would prove to be the win

POLO AS IT IS WRIT.
You Pays Your Money and You Takes
Your Choice.
The Hartford papers spend so much
time abusing Waterbury that they
neglect to write the game as it is
played. Here are two squibs from
the Times and Post about a recent
game:
Just before the gong sounded Griffin
apparently sent the ball into the Hart
ford cage and it struck in the wire
net work. Referee Leahy would not
allow the point, and Hartford was still
one goal to the good when the final
inning began. The Times.
In this inning there was another
wild time. Russell drove a ball with
fearful force against the end of the
cage and it was wedged in the wire.
The Hartford players pushed it out on
the outside. The visitors were bois
terous with the referee, claiming a
goal, but he would not allow it. The

WITH THE YACHTSMEN.
One of the Workmen on the Defender
Tries to Commit Suicide. I
Bristol, R. I., Jan 17 It has been
learned that the Herreshoffs will try
the plan of bending all the frames and
getting all the material ready, such as
deck beams, braces, stringers, etc, be
fore commencing the work of construc
tion. They have a twofold object in
this. Just so long as the setting up
of the frames ean be delayed just so
long can the lines of the boat be kept
a secret from the public in general
and the rival boat builders in particu
lar. It is well understood by the Herre
shoff employes that nothing must be
said by them regarding any work going
on in the yards under penalty of dis
charge, and several, examples) of the
enforcement of this rule have been
given. The designer, however, under
stands that after the frames begin to
go up secrecy In regard to the model
is well night impossible. The second
object in having all the material ready
before beginning the work of construc
tion Is to obviate all chance of delay
during the setting-up process, so that
the large gang of men may be kept
busy constantly. If necessary, the
work of construction can be carried
on night and day, and with all the
material ready the new aspirant for
the blue ribbon of the seas ean be
built in fast .time.
The Herresboffs lost the services of
a valuable man yesterday when Frank
Spaulding, despondent over ill health,
shot himself in the right temple with
a 32-ealibre revolver.- Spaulding was
one of the best copper workers and
plumbers in the country and had been
emDloved by the Herresboffs .many
years. He had done the work in his
line on all the fast yachts built here.
Spaulding was conscious after the
shooting and told his wife that ' ill
health prompted the rash act. He
was taken to the Rhode Island hos
pital, in Providence. There is little
chance of his recovery. .
Deer Island, Me, Jan 17. Captain
Rhodes of the new Herreshoff cup de
fender, who came here several days
ago to select a crew for the new yacht,
has returned home without having ac
complished his purpose. A heavy
snow storm made it impossible' for
Captain Rhodes to make his way about
the island. When leaving he said he
expected to be back in a few days. -.

The boxer of to-day is in nearly as
bad a plight as the tighter of the Lou
don rules period. The bare knuckles
bruisers of the turf fights of old were
chased from pillar to post by the au
thorities, and were hauled before the
bar of justice on every conceivable oc
casion. Although there has been a radical
change in the matter of boxing, the
present style of contest being less bru
tal than foot ball and several other
modern games, yet the attitude of the
police has not changed. They pursue
the glove fighters with the same re
lentless fury that marked their chase
of the bare fist combatants.
If those con'cerned in the death of
fifteen foot ball players last fall and
tlif Ininrv' nf nthpr n1;ivfrs wore
brought to book, the lawyers and police
would have enough to keep them busy
for some time to come.
Fortunately for the boxers, they
have discovered a retreat where they
can escape the attentions of the offi
cious minions of the law, who are
more active in pursuit of a pugilist
than in searching for a murderer.
"Scrappers' Haven" is the name giv
en to a triangular farm that shelters
a dozen well known boxers who are
wanted by the authorities of several !
cities. The farm is on the line that
divides Delaware and Maryland, and
is within ten minutes' drive of the
Pennsylvania line. Lewis, Penn, Mc
Clellandsville, Del, and Fair Hill, Md.
are the nearest postotlices, and fairly
mark the points of the triangle.
Tim Callahan is there, because he
does not care to make a trip to Bos
ton, where he is wanted as oue of the
principals in the fight with Oscar Gard
ner. Ellwood McCloskey is boarding at
"Scrappers' Haven" because he does
not care to appear before the grand
jury that is investigating the death of
Frank Welch at Fhillipslmrg. X. J., a
fortnight since. "Tody" Banks is
there because he prefers not to testi
fy In the Welch case, and the same
reason accounts for "Scaldy BUI" De
vine and "Xick" McAvoy, who Were
at the ringside. "Jack" Parrell is
training at "Scrappers' Haven" be
cause he cannot explain a finish affair
that occurred in or near Chester a
week ago, and big George 'Russell is
there because he was back of Farrell
and is wanted as a witness.
Charley Johnson is wanted as a wit
ness before the grand Jury sitting at
Camden. X. J., and is on his way to
"Scrappers' Haven." The only way
that a man could be removed from
"Scrappers' Haven" would be by three
officers appearing on the scene with
three warrants, each issued in a differ
ent state, and' even then it would be
u. case or nerat or lootraee before an
arrest could be legally made, and even
then extradition papers would be nec
essary. As all of the men, except
Callahan and McCloskey, are wanted
merely as witnesses, they are not at
all likely to be molested.
WITTE STANDS FIRM.
Herman J. Witte. attornev of the
Saengerfest club, does not falter in his
confidence and talks iii this way: "The
contest will take place on scheduled
time, no matter what any one says.
We know the law, and no one can
twist it to make it appear that we are
going to give a prize fight. We are
operating under section 0890, which
gives the mayor of a city the right to
issue a permit for a sparring contest.
That is what it will be, and nothing
else. All the laws that have been
quoted to show that the contest will
not take place refer only to prize fight
ing, and not to sparring contests.
Why, it's plain as can be! We will
have the contest, no matter what any
one says. I'll give you mv word on
that. There'll be no fight, but there
will be a contest at Saengerfest hall
on February 15 between James .1. Jef
fries, the champion of the world, and
Gus Ruhlin of Akron, O., or you can
use my head for a football. We know
just where we stand, and we would
like to impress some people with that
fact. Law is law and you can't twist
it to make white appear black. That
is all there is to it."
M'GOVERX HAS REASONS.
Manager Harris gives the following
reasons for the refusal to send McGov
ern to mngiana at once: "My reason
for not accepting the Jordan match.
to taKe piace in ionaon June 3. was
because the offers made by the 'Frisco
clubs were again as much ns offered
by the Xational Sporting club' of -Lon
don. I am in receipt of a telegram
from Ed Horgan, managor of some
club in San Jbrancisco, and lie otters
me a heavy purse to have Terry meet
some good man there May 1. - I think
it will be Kid Broad. Jim -Kennedy,
who manages the Twentieth Century
club of Xew York city, is going, to the
coast, .and he also has made me a
handsome offer.- My intentions are to
first tight' in 'Frisco, and then if the
Englishmen are satisfied to take Ter
ry, say in August or September, will
make .the trip oyer there. In regard
to Terry fighting' a preliminary to the
Jeffries-Ruhlin fight, will say I do not
think they could give me enough
money to accept." '.
OUT BETWEEN ROUNDS.
Over In New Britain the other even
ing there was a bout or two of boxing
and It must have been a very funny
no iudeine from the following: about
the principal set-to of the evening, tak- J
en from the New Britain Herald: !
Handler was fat, while Burke was
in good condition, but notwithstanding
bis avoirdupois he walloped Burke so
hard in the first round, one blow strik
ing so low that the latter was about '
to quit, and would have; done so had '
not the crowd yelled and the contest
was continued. From that up to the i
tenth round the men . ctonted each j
other like a. couple of tnoldsrsr and "the !
betting was even that both would fo '
down together and wonld not be able
to get 41P. " .Had Councilman Parker
seen this boot, he would undoubtedly -
Dave a ringside seat tit tne next snow,

the tenth round he behu.' gl e.-i'.o:.
on Burke as though he. Tvcr.id fcurt It
there and then, but Burke pave him
several wallops on the nose, ear and
epigastrium. When the gong sounded
and the men went to tfielir comers and
the seconds began manipulating the
towels, Handler sank back as though
asleep and Referee Willis announced
Burke as the winner.
THOSE HARTFORD BOUTS.
Twenty rounds at catchwelghts be
tween Joe Walcott and Kid Carter is
the main feature of the card to be pre
sented in the Empire A. C. in Hartiord,
to-night. Carter is the bigger and
heavier man. He has been training in
Westchester, and has worked hard.
Walcott has done his work in New
York. .. He is. confident of defeating
the young man from Brooklyn, who is

Wrecked by an iceberg in one of the
strangest of manners is the story of
the. steamer Whitelaw, ten days out of
Belfast for New Brunswick.
The propeller shaft had broken and
the screw had dropped into a mile of
yvater. Helpless,' the vessel rolled and
pitched on the long swells of the. At

wind and then drifting, day after day.

rose the whiter outlines of an immense
iceberg.
There was no time to lower boats.
Ther huge mass was overshadowing the
vessel, when all at once it grated and
grounded hard -and fast on an underly
ing shelf of ice. Fast in this ice cradle
the vessel drifted southward day after
day, the crew expecting an overhang
ing cliff of ice to fall and crush the ves
sel or to have the whole ice mass "turn
turtle." . - v "
But nothing happened. Only the
steady southward drift of berg and
steamer followed, and day by day, as
warmer seas were encountered, the ice
mass erew smaller. V
For three weeks tne huge iee.berg
dwindled, until, as it tilted, the White-
law was lifted out of the water. From
this pinnacle the crew finally attracted
the attention of the. Cyrus, of Hamburg.
Scarcelv had the crew deserted the im-
prisoned ship when the berg turned
ou its side, carrying the Whiteiaw

but the animal saw him, and in the race

SOME BASE BALL XOTES.
The Fight Begins To-day Between the
Players and Magnates.
Xew York, .Tau 17. For the pur
pose of organizing the American asso
ciation, a friendly rival to the, Xation
al league, base ball men from differ
ent parts of the country gathered in
this city yesterday evening. They
will meet in the Hotel Marlborough to
day, when the organization probably
will be completed. As already told, a
lrcuit of eight cities will be chosen
for this new base ball body, the eight
to be chosen from the following places:
Boston, Philadelphia, Washington,
Baltimore and Providence in the east,
and Chicago, Milwaukee, Indianapolis,
Detroit and Louisville in the west. Ot
these Milwaukee. Chicago, Indianapo-
is, .Boston and I'laiaueipnia are sure
of a place in the circuit.
The men interested in the new-
eague who .were in town last night -
were v. ll. waiKins or inuianapoiis,
A. H. Koch of Milwaukee, who- repre
sents Philadelphia; Charles Havnor,
i-epresenting Chicago: Harry Qumn or
Milwaukee, and Arthur Irwin, repre-.
sentin.g Boston. It is pretty well un
derstood that the American association
is to exist as a member of the Xation
al agreement, and, therefore, not to be
at loggerheads with the big league. In
fact; one-of those interested in tne
American association said that the as
sociation was being organized at this
time with the understanding that it
was to have recognition from the Xa
tional league. - ' '
"We didn't intend, to organize until
a year nence, - tins geiiuemau saiu.
but things so happened that the pres
ent is a good time tmie-for us to get
under way. e are simply taking ad-
viintaep of circumstances in organiz
ing a year sooner than we intended."
"Was that something tuat Hap
pened the strained relations between
the National- league and the American
league?"
"les, that s about it. was tne repij.
"However, we are to be entirely inde
pendent of the Xational league. We
are running this new league with our
own money and are a separate organ
ization. We have the grounds and the
capital."
Mr Quinn of Milwaukee who, niie
Arthur Irwin and AVatkins. long has
been a prominent figure in base ball,
said that the new league was an uxeu
for grounds in its various cities. "I
own my own park in Milwaukee," he
said. -"and Mr waiKins nas grouuus ju
Indianapolis. Mr Havnor has a lease
in his pocket for one of the best situ
ated fields in Chicago. Mr Koch, who
is to put a club in Philadelphia, has
matters fixed all right, and Mr Irwin,
as you know, has Charles River park
in Boston. In Louisville, which is a
doubtful city, and. Baltimore, we have

EXACT COPT OF WRAPPER.-1.
Jl ; j
of Time:
ton Mr Xoyes is the man. Wagner is
not " interested. Providence is knock
ing at the door. The club there is
owned by Mr Brannigan, who bought
it last year, and he wants to join us."
As another result of the secret meet
ing of the Xational league magnates
last week, they have begun strenuous
efforts to sign their players. Robison
of St Louis held a confab with two of
his men, Pat Donovan and Jesse Bur
kett, yesterday. He offered the man
agement of the St Louis club to Don
ovan together with a high-salaried
contract, and also tendered an increase
of salary to Burkett. Both players,
respecting their pledge to the Protec
tive association, refused to do any
business.
"I told Mr Robison," said Donovan,
"that it was for his Interests as well
as my own for me to refuse to sign
at this time. I am a member of the
Protective association and( have agreed
to hold off until tlie league has granted
some of our demands. Should I sign
a contract now and break my pledge
I would lose the- respect of the very
players who r ald be under my man
agement In St Louis next year. So I
refused."
"I declined to sign," said Burkett,
"because I've pledged my word to hold
off- Mr Robison has treated me well
during the ten years I've been associ
ated with him and I've no grievance.
But I can't go back on the players. Mr
Robison sent for Donovan and me and
we came here as a matter of courtesy,
but it was impossible for us to do busi
ness. I'd like to say one word in de
fense of John McGraw, who was at
tacked the other day for alleged dou-
tle dealing. He is a square man and
one of the smartest ball players I've
ever met. Every player in the league
has confidence in his honesty."
One of the. association men, by the
way, pronounced the recent attack on
McGraw an outrage. "McGraw did
not deal with us in an underhanded
way," he said, "but was perfectly on
the square." McGraw confirms the
story of the league's plan to go back
