WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, TUESDAY, AUGUST 12, 1902.
i 4 BI B! MEWS. Waterbury Puts Dent In Spring field's Pennant Aspirations. The Scrappy Bunch from the Massa ' chusetts City Outplayed and Outbat ted Umpire Steve Ashe Browbeaten ' and. Bullied by the Visitors Linde- raana Was Found In Just One In . aing-An Exciting Contest Until the ' Last Man Was Out Results of Other GamesT There was excitement noUgh at the game yesterday to satisfy the most ardent fan and everybody rooted to his or her heart's content and even the few friends of the Springfield team took a hand in the game and tried hard to have the Springfield stickers hit her out and win from their own city. There , were only a very few of those fans, however, and they were as , silent as a dead duck when the game was over and .the alleged champions. were sent Dack to tne Massachusetts fcitjr. beaten In a contest that was marked by many distinct ' features . In the first place the home team had o fight hard to win out because Steve Ashe held the indicator and he was browbeaten and abused by at least two members of the Springfield team and not a fine was charged up to a player nor was any player removed from the game. Time after time did . Ed Connors and Joe Connor delay the' game to argue a point with Umpire Ashe and the fans in the meantime begged for the game to continue. How much differently this same : bunch of players acted when Dan Shannon held the Indicator and what a difference there was in the umpiring. When Shannon was here : the decision was given and that settled itr There were no lengthy disputes nor .' arguments. Neither was the Springfield team al lowed to shout and coach from the bench as the players did yesterday. Shannon was an umpire who com manded respect, while on the other hand Ashe was afraid to say his name was Ashe for fear some of the Spring fields would object. v v -S Another feature of the game was the great one-hand catch of Croughah out in the center garden in the last Inning. It saved Waterbury from a possible ... chance of , defeat. Peter Kiernan's slide home for the plate in the first Inning and his very bum er ror In the seventh, which almost sent his team into the air again, Were also features. The general good playing of the locals and the. ragged work of jthe visitors were also noticeable. '-. . Springfield started off scoring in. the first inning. Tansy had been retired from Fitzpatrick to first when Ed Con nors banged out ft safe one. J. Connor then tried to sacrifice, but Slater got it and nailed Ed Connors at the second tbag. " It took Ed Connors just two minutes to come in from the field, so sulky was he, -and: he looked mad enough to eat Catcher Joe. The lat ter stole second and came home on SHoff man's corking single. That was all the scoring done by the Spring fields until the seventh. ' Not another tilt had been made by the Springflelds, either, up to that Inning. Hoffman, ihe first' man up In the seventh, ham mered out a pretty single. He would have been nailed at second on ' the throw-down, but Peter Kiernan had to make-his one, bad error, and 'then the fun began. ' Berry went out to Slater and Henry, O'Connor and De laney followed . with clean ' singles. HoSmaii in the meantime had come 'home and Henry tried to do likewise, but young Sullivan had captured D e laney'tf hit and, sent it. like a shot to the plate. Henry ran many feet out Bide the line of base and Scanlon, who (had the ball, chased after him with ;both hands. - Henry was declared out and then another kick Btarted. 'From one corner came Joe Connor afid from the other Ed Connors, while all the other players chimed in from all parts of the lot. Ashe stuck to this de cision.' - Francis was given a base on ball and the three corners were filled. Tansy was next up and one ball pitch ed Went over his cap. It did not move it a hair, but Umpire Ashe said It did and one run was forced in. It looked as though Ashe - was - trying hard 'to land the game for Springfield when Ed Connors disappointed him' and the Springfield bunch by flylng out to left. . " ; 7 Waterbury went after the game in the first inning "and succeeded almost In getting enough to win. . Kiernan drove the first bill pitched through Berry's legs and took two bases on it. Mc Andrews banged out a safe one to center and Peter made a dash for the plate. - The ball" came- high to Joe Connor and Kiernan slid under his legs and the run counted, McAn drews in the meantime had taken sec end. Slater and Fltzpatrick went out to third and center respectively, when Croughan sent a hot one out to center and Scored McAndrews on. Henry's fumble. - Croughan Sept on to second and he came in a moment later on Lin demann's hit. Another run came to Waterbury in .the fourth without, a hit Lindemann gent a fly to Henry In cen ter and he dropped it. I Short tried to sacrifice and Hoffman, who got the ball, threw it a mile wide and Linde mann kept on around the bases to the home plate. Our last run came in the seventh on a single by McAndrews and a corking two sacker by Ned Slater That was all the scoring done on either side. The score and (ummary; . - - WATEBBURX A.B. . B. IB.

" CASTOR I Por Infanta and Children, Tha Kind Yea liavs Always Bought WITH THE WRESTLERS John E. Kelly; .Gives His Ultimatum to Wrestlers Harvey and Foley. Waterbury, Aug 12, 1902. Sporting Editor of the Democrat: Dear Sir: The $25 forfeit which I posted some weeks ago to bind a match with either Jack Harvey or Jesse Foley has not as jret been covered for a match with Jack Roach. It looks very much as though that forfeit would not bje .covered, either. After all the hot air shot off by both of those gentlemen, neither one of them ; has sand enough to come up to the mark and make a match., Roach has conceded them every , point as to weight, but still, they remain in the rear and content them selves, probably, with the knowledge that they have one or two friends who consider them wrestlers. . ; It is very strange that such a world beater as Jack Harvey would refuse to make a match in which there is big rnoney for him if he wins.' Let me ""again recall the scene which took place at Forest park some weeks ago. At tnat time he had his friends present, to judge from the applause he receiyed, when he stated that he would meet Roach or any man in the world if the weight that he wanted was made. -He did not think at the time, probably, that Roach could get down to 125 pounds. He must have been surprised, therefore, when Roach took him at his word and agreed to meet him at the weight stipu lated. He has not yet recovered from that surprise, for he has failed to make any sortNof a rational statement as to making a match. . ' He spoke in an Interview with your paper about Roach getting a reputa tion. Let me refresh Mr Harvey's memory and see whether Roach has a reputation or not. Harvey claimed to be the champion of the; world in his class and at Forest park he challenged any man at 125 pounds. Certainly Harvey must have a reputation, for he is called the "Brooklyn Strong Boy," and he says himself he is a wrestler. Now Roach threw Foley twice in about twenty minutes, and Foley threw Har vey. Does not that give Roach a repu tation when he can throw the man who threw Harvey? Reputation has , noth ing to do with it, however, in this case, for if Harvey can throw Roach he can win a big bundle of money. I am- Of the opinion that he lacks the' sand to get on the mat with Roach, arid will make him a present of $5 if he agrees to meet and does' meet Jack Roach In a straight . eatch-as-catcB-can match, the winner to take 7 everything lie may consider $5 a smairsum, but that is about -all he is worth, from his ac tions in the presfjntt matter, v World bealer nothing; he could not be pulled Into flie i wrestling arena with ! Roach by the Strongest team of cattle in the town. My forfeit remains up until 10 o'clock to-morrow morning vand if j he or Foley does not Cover it, then I say to both of them, never let the people of this city or any other city' hear them talk about wrestling again. If he does cover the forfeit he can bave all the money he wants in side bets. He ought to have some friends who -think well enough of him to back him against Roach, but they probably believe he is a quitter and a bluffer the same as the friends of Jack Roach. . . ., Respectfully yours. " JOnN E. KELLY. BRUSH TO BUY OUT FREEDMANI " P 1. J j ') " Rumor Says That John T. Is After tile NewYork Club's Stock. . New York, Aug 12, The announce ment that John T. Brush has sold "the Cincinnati National league club to Mayor -Julius Fleischmann and others comes in the nature of a surprise; to base ball, jn en, together with th Infor mation that Brush,, In future, will de vote his time to the affairs of the New York club. Brush nas been a stock holder in the New York club ever since he sold the Indianapolis team to John B. Day in 1890 for $60,000. He is said to hold about ' $25,000 - worth of the stock. Last summer Brush" ; tried to sign Edward .Hani on to manage the New Yorks, and only the other day he engineered the" deal by; Which McGraw, McGann, McGInnity and Bresnahan de serted the Baltimore American league club and signed with Freedman. , f Brush's sudden interest in the affairs of the New York club has naturally created a great deal of .talk. i There was a well defined rumor afloat yester day to the effect that Brush intends to organize a syndicate here to buy Freed man's stock.vf.Thf 'stor was started some time ago by a man close to Brush, who said at the race track one day: "Do not be at all surprised 'if John Brush succeeds in buying , Freedman out.- He .has been spending a gi?at deal ofhIs time here ;With the presi dent of the New York club, and is dead anxious : to get control of the stock. Brush knows that a successfully con ducted club, operating in the National league at the Polo grounds, cannot help but coin money. . He also knows that the success of the Ntew York club means the success of the league. When Brush made up his differences with Freedman he told me that it was for the good of the game, and that in-time he would make an attempt to buy the club, no matter what, the price might be. Since then Brush has been Freed man's right bower, They have worked together hand and hand, and last win ter, it will be remembered, they tried to " push through the trust scheme, which caused A. G. Spalding to step into the affairs of the league, causing the memorable deadlock. Brush will get rid of the. Cincinnati club as soon as he receives assurances frora Freed man that the latter Nwl!l sell." ; 5 , Brush got the Indianapolis club, for nothing, and, then sold out, for $60,000. Later he got the Cincinnati club free of charge, the late Albert L Johnson receiving a rough deal from the league magnates. If Brush really received $150,000 from the Fleischmann syndi cate, he has enough money to begin ne gotiating with Freedman in earnest. But Freedman has often stated that he would never sell out until the New Yorks had won the pennant. So Brush may be disappointed after all. Twelr Jfu'rt 'Iii "Hallroad Wreck, j , KEW YORK, Aug. 12.

V'ff Vi . IS $wimmmjsPpulm Swimming will never become passe at the summer, resorts. This season the little lakes and rivers so much frequented by.' the 'resorters have been liberally sipplied . by Jupiter Pluvius, and there is little danger of many of them "going dry" as was noted last year during the long period of drought. To illustrate how la rainy spell that brings frowns on the face of the farmer may cause laughter wrinkles on the countenance of the city merchant, it is a matter of fact' that the big houses have sold more bathing .suits thia far this sea son than, they' did' during 1900 and 1901. A' great deal of this unusually large sale is attributed to the abun dance of water in the resort lakes and the increased desire of the sum mer beoarders to swim. . No one can . tell the anguished father what tb do If he sees, his baby struggling in the water of a treacher ous little lake and he is powerless, to swim out tq its; assistance. But there we thousands of teachers, who will provide 'everybody with, the instruc tioji necessary to make swimmers out of those who cannot make progress ia the, water. Do you want to be able to save life at the summer resort? Do you want to be free from fear when out in a storm? ; Learn to swim. "The knowledge of the art of swimming is worth more than, all the money in the world- if you are a long way from shore and' there is no one putting out in a boat for you," once remarked Howard 3SV Brewer, the Pacific coast champion swimmer, while we were swimming to-, getherVrefeeritly.v:'! believe I would, liot be afraid to f droppd overboard in the Pacific, lDft miles- from shore, if I could be guaranteed that no shark would get me. It is- possible f or a hu man being to doso much more in the water than the.'&verage man, thinks can be done, that some day some pow erful swimmer Will adopt that scheme -swimming man ymilesi to landto in spire within- the teasts of his., fellow men the xespectvtjiat should, be- shown for swimming." ? -; . Brewer is &o well known that a few "pointers-" from.the champion, to be perused, while sitting in a boat at some resort, should be of interest. . , "While the teachers will tell about the several distinct steps' to be ac quired in learning to siwim, remarked! the "human water rat,?.as the water polo boys who played with Brewer, called'1 the Calif ornian, "it must be re membered that any boy may swim if he falls into water Over his headifor the first time-iby -simply .' imitating the motions of a dog . Who is hurled into the water. Lessons are' well enough, but presence of 'mind, js-the greatest cork lifebelt, so:t,l.speak,that you throw out to a person in deep watSr. -You may watcht f your teacher go through the movements used in swim ming; urging his" or her class to fol low them before! going 'into the wa ter and you may spend hours in prac ticing the arm .riovements, : paying strict attention to the injunction- to keep the hands- flat, palm downwards, to keep the elbows drawn nearly to the sides, to count' 'one' and push the hands forward until the arms are fully extended, to turn the hands slightly outward and use a sweeping backward stroke, etc., but I would advise begin ners to stop all this laborious work the moment they find they have the confidence that makes' swimming easy. Get another teacher and then take up the racing strokes immedi ately. . AOTL When the city fathers of one of the largest' municipalities in the United States passed an ordinance making many small parks for the benefit of the children who would use them for playgrounds and athletic grounds, a novel problem in' examinations was set for the civil'service coinmission. It was necessary to engage a superin tendent 'Or a director of 'sports who could teach the yotingsters how to utilize their . evenings a.nd half-holidays in developing their physical makeup. - "Let us have fcorne college strong man," said one of the commissioners. "College strong men are not athletic trainers," maintained another. "They can teach their systems only to ambi tiousi adults." "Well let us have the Amateur Ath letic union officials suggest questions for examination and throw the vana petltion. open t9 lt WHo hays Jtiad -university athletic eKjsriejiee ventured C,'''''"-!'',''i,'x- M a jt- &rA or M K ,. TV . 'WV M? -.'.-rV H I iiiiiMil - nTTWrmMffllTT i .SEME The latter was done, and men who had trained college teams, old foot Tunners, former gridiron stars, etc., were aked to take, the examination. It is worthy of notice that a man who for three years had trained the ath letes of two big universities and who for one year was the trainer of some Jausky material in an agricultural col lege that won a state championship, only passed fourth in the list of five who took the examination. He got the place on the 60-day appointment plan, which often gives the incompe 'tent man the job ahead of the man who has no "pull," but his examina tion papers if read off to the parents who send their aspiring youths to the public athletic grounds for instruction would "queer" the old1 trainer. "What do you know about: the Olympian games?" was one question. The .trainer j had tried to get an ap pointment as- secretary -of one of the many committees and he answered: "Everything." President F.urber, of the. Olympian Games association, might take a. long vacation and en gage this man to run the big athletic carnival. "What muscles are used in climb ing?" was another question. "The legs and arms," was the answer given. "Name the principal muscle of the upper arm," was another j question. "Thempper arm muscle," was , the an swer.5 .These and other answers illus trate how even the experienced train er of 'varsity athletes may f ail to im part his information when ques tioned.

Once in awhile he won, but few ever paid any atten tion to him. He was , slow and plod ding, hence his name "riugger." But it is possible for a man like Martin to haive an ambition which may be . gratified if perseverance is used. Martin recently came lo this coun try, "in -style' first cabin tin a big liner? -( Eight, years ago, when he'yt6ok ship'for Australia with. the consuming desire -to win the Austral race,' with its flrst'prize of $2,000, he'went prac tically as freight.1.

No other, American, ever coveted the Australian race as did Martin. -It was persistency personified, this continual effort on his- part. Perhaps the fact that there were often 45,000 paid ad missions to the inclosure to see the Austral contested had something to do with his ambitio'n to win. For six years defeat had come to the Massa chusetts man, but. the antipodeana were only preparing themselves- for humiliation when they made fun of the "also ran." Last' winter "Plugger Bill" felt that his time had coane, and again he went to the far side of the earth to do bat tle with the Australian cracks. "It's do or die' said Mattin, and he wagered his life's savings--$5,000 oh ' himself with the- bookmakers,' who do a big business in the big throng at the an nual event rthe Epsom Cycling Derby of the world. , His odds- were 7 to ,1. WThen he "cleaned up" after riding to victory, he took a check for- $40,000 and deposited it In an Australian bank. Most of that money is Uotv invested in the British colony, and Martin is. tak ing his "American vacation." a. a. wustlakb. - AIcMillMii'H Sou May Succeed Illm. DETROIT, Mich., Aug. 12.
