There is no one knows this better than Roger and Joe and they will have to drop their past good luck now 'and get some good men at good salaries. In the game between Hoboken and Poughkeepsie yesterday in which Lln demann, the former Waterbury twirl er turned down - the Poughkeepsles with only one hit, McCormack and Kiernan played and third base and shortstop respectively and neither one of them had a chance to handle the ball. McCormack scored two runs and two hits while Kiernan' scored one run. rLindemann struck out eleven men and had two of the only three assists in the game., ' ., . ' ; '. Farren, a" new shortstop, was seen for the first time Saturday, a.d he more . than met expectations. Whitey O'Brien has gone to Vermont' to play In the Mapte Sugar league. Stallings has jumped the team. Donovan will play the bag until a taller man can be secured. Manager Reilly had a deal to get Ed Connors, with Springfield last year, to play first base. Roger uonnor agreed to the terms, Which, included the exchange of a valuable player, but Brother Joe kicked the traces and the deal was off Hartford Courant. ; , It was an off day for the City Ama teur league Saturday and no games were played on the regular schedule. The only game was that between the Washington Hill and the female base ball team at Riverside parkk. It was a cold, dreary day and the rain was falling gently when the six female players with three males to assist them left the center on a parade to the park. In order to make a few dollars and pay the Visitors something the grounds had been surrounded by canvas, but this availed nothing. There was . a big crowd down there, but thehy. did not all go Inside the canvas roped field. There were too many good viewing places from the roadway and the hills near the railroad tracks. Probably three hundred or a little over paid admission and tbe rest occupied the free positions. The game itself was a funny on to watch. Maude Nelson was the twirler for the girls as they were called, and she did pretty good work as a slab artist The i Washington ; Hills toyed with them, however, and at the end of six innings, when the game was called, the score stood 14 to 7 in favor of the Hills. ' Sunday Ball at Chicago. CHICAGO June 22. Chicago ' won easily, hitting Plank all over the field and taking advantage 6f every misplay of the champions. Flaherty would have shut out the visitors but for Tanne hill's fumble and wild throw in the sec ond. The batting of Holmes and Gleer and Callahan's fielding were note worthy.

The' game was a pitch ers' battle between Sudhoff and Town send; and the latter lost through poor fielding behind him.

Chicago, June 22v Makers of future books coined money on the American Derby won Saturday by The Picket, Thev began taking money, in February and March, and kept taking It in until Saturday morning. Through the de feat of the favorite and the failure of Irish Lad to start they received an op portunity to win fortunes. Estimates mnrlo hv thA bookmakers themselves or by . persons close to them made their winnings as follows: Jim O leary, $65,000: Kid Weller: $40,000; Smith and Per rv. $20,000: total, $125,000. . ; Jim O'Leary, who made the largest future book ever operated on an Amerl can turf event, may have won much more than , the amount- . estimated. O'Leary would rather give the impres sion that he just about broke even. Some bookmakers, who know the size of . the book O'Leary -conducted, say that he made the largest profit that a future book ever brought to its opera tor. When Savable ran outside the money O'Leary was safe. He was touched up for one big bet. He wrote a , ticket for $40,000 to $5,000 on The Picket and' bad to settle. That was the only spot in which O'Leary's book was hard hit, although he lost about $20,000 on Claude for place and show.

Jim Parr is doing a lot of prelim inary work for his coming match with Dan McLeod, which is to be decided in Buffalo in a' few weeks. The other night at one of the Buffalo theaters Parr met "Soldier" McNab, a local wrestler of some repute. In the bout Parr showed his old time speed and sum, all traces of his recent attack of rheumatism having vanished. Mc Nab, who weighs only 170 pounds, made a gallant stand for three minutes, but after that he was not in it. and was thrown. Parr, in addition to his match with McLeod, has signed arti- cies to meet 0tto Betz, the "Ashtabula Fisherman." They will come together at Buffalo in a few days.

Jones of " Philadelphia, certification of : the new ' homing pigeon record made last Sunday under ithe supervision of the National Race society. The 500-mile young bird race ' of the Independent District of the National Association of Homing Pigeon Fanciers was flnown from 'Statesville. N. O.. the birds being released by J. R. Murdock at 5:10 a m. in clear weather with a southwest wind. The first arrival reached Mr Maynard's loft at 3:46:10 p. m., and the second at 3:55:40. The winner's time was 10 hours 36 minutes 10 sec onds, and the .computed speed was 1,375.41 yards per minute, which cre ated a new record for the world. The birds arrived in a rain storm and their youth and wet condition made the flight seem almost incredible. SPORTS AND ATpLETICS , While the pursuits and associations t the professional baseball player are not specially con ducive to that calm, meditative and serious cast of mind most be , fitting- a candidate for holy orders, there is no good reason in the na ture of things why a young man who has been a shin ing success as a pitcher or a short stop should not Wm." A. Sunday. -also make asuc cessful pulpit artist. The diamond is a first-class place to studycertain phases of human nature, and a sucessful preacher must have a large stock of that kind of knowledge. At all events Mr. William A." Sunday, formerly well known in baseball circles, has resolved to make a trial of the ministry and, judging by the eoccellen record he made when recently examined by the Chicago Presbytery for ordination as an evangelist, his future usefulness is beyind question The ordination of Mr. Sunday toolf place at the Jefferson Park Presbyterian church, at Chicago, but he has not taken up regular pas toral work aa yet, being engaged in evangelistio work, at. which he has al ready -accomplished much good.

His fame, though, is pt confined to that. country, as ne has often, visited these shores and Bhown Americans his skill with the clubs. . ., - In Indiana they believe that, the "game of golf deserves a better stand ing than to be known only as a pleas ure 'or pastime, so they have formed the Indiana Golf league, composed of Marion,' Muncle, Anderson and Rich mond, and a series of 12 matches will be played-during the summer season.1 The football rules committee, .who say how the big .Colleges of. the east, and through . tbj&n practically all other colleges, shall play-the game, at a re cent meeting agreed to make two al terations in the rules. A change will probably be made in the rules govern ing the number of men who are kept in th rush line and with regard to the auarter back. A' rule will be drafted for next season which will require that between the two 25-yard llneB," from one 25-yard to the other, seven men will be reauired in the line. In other worda that will prevent T mass plays and heavy formation on the centers of the field. Inside the 25ryaxd lines there will be no such requirement. The new rules will probably also allow the quarter back in tne same section ui mc ixuu. with the ball,." provided he cross the line 'of ; scrimmage at least five yards f rom where5 itis put ih play.
