r WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, FRIDAY, JULY 3, 1903. . . ... i" 7 ilE DIAMOND. Exhibition of Base Ball by Holyoke (The Crack Players of the Team Do Wretched Work New London Ad ministers a Whitewash to New Ha ven Norwich Defeated Springfield, and Hartford Fell a Victim to Bridge . port. Holyoke, July 3. Unusually ragged playing lost Holyoke the game yester day in their own city. Up to the fourth inning things were quiet and there was nothing doing for either side. Walsh led off with a daisy to j McCormack, , but the "kid" threw low to first and even "Pop" Slater couldn't be expected . to get it. The ball went into the crowd and Walsh went down to second, which was as far as he was allowed by a ground rule, iwhlch gave only one base on a ball into the crowd. Weisbecker" then tried to sacrifice, but the. ball fell right into Charlie. Clancy's hands and Walsh got no farther around the bags. Manning pounded out a clean single that sent Walsh across the plate, and when Ken nedy got hit with the ball Manning moved down to second. The next play was the one that did the miscbiefr and allowed the I visitors two ill-deserved runs. Hoffman came to the plate and sent the ball screaming down to ' Mc Andrews. "Mac" pinched it and toss ed it to Fitzpatrick, wlio was covering second to catch Kennedy and then to double up Hoffman at first. Butt, strange to say, "Fitz" muffed the ball and before he could get It again Man ning had scored and Kennedy , was making for third. The Holyoke cap tain threw to McCormack to catch the runner, but the throw was wide and tKennedv crossed the plate. Hodge then batted a high fly that Woodruff fwas dead sure of until he dropped it, and Hoffman completed the course and added anotther to the . rapidly-Increasing, scorei. Larkin was the next man up, and he got to first when McCor mack, who stopped the ball, chose, to play on Hoffman at second. Fitzpat rick. retired htm all right and then tried for a double at first, but was un successful. Altizer hit safely and let Larkin to third, while he himself stop ped, on first. Drew then got to first when McAndrews failed to handle the ball properly and at the same, time Larkin added another run and Altizer rested on third for a moment and then be, ; too, scored. Walsh ended the ho ning by batting one which McAndrews did manage to keep, and by throwing it to Slater he retired Walsh and ended the awful "inning. They brought in another in the next inning, when Weisbecker scored on a hit, a sacrifice by Manning, followed by another erroi by McAndrews. A hit, stolen basd and a hit by Walsh, scored Altizer in the sixth, and that completed the hits that were run up by the Connecticut boys. . . - . , Holyoke was not able to score until the sixth and then five men came home. McAndrews was the first man to" the plate and he swung his stick for a neat three-bagger that made the fans believe there was good baseball in'ni still, and for the time, at least, he 'was forgiven his errors. Fitzpat rick dropped a fly 'just out of reach of Altizer and McAndrews came home amid great rejoicing. ' Landy, then ad vanced to the plate with that peculiar walk of his and Batch himself, who was not in the game yesterday, could not have done better. He got to the initial bag on. a pretty hit that nobody reached and "Fitz" took second on the play. Hodge then began his work on Slater and the man on second slipped up to third. Slater was retired on a hot one to Altizer and McCormack bat- ted a long one out, to Walsh, and it looked as though Holyoke had got Its last run. But the fun wasn't over yet. Bossman was the next to, wield the stick and everybody trembled, for "Rossy" hasn't been doing anything wonderful lately.He rose to the occa sion though, and made a hit that scor ed "Fitz", and he got to second during - the excitement. The bleachers were just about crazy by this time and yell ed, and cheered for -t the Paper City team." and when Woodruff came to bat seemed to, know just what was wanted arid slammed a beautiful fly out be yond the fielders and before anything could be-done about it he was safe on third. Shincel then shoved out a dou ble that scored Woodruff and gave Hol yoke its last run. Clancy got' out on an easy grounder and the game was practically at an end. Batch was not well yesterday and Landy was put in his place in the field. tie aia everything that Batch could - have done and perhaps more. Both his catches in the field were difficult and it was only after long runs that he was ; able to get them. : With the bat he proved himself equal to the oc casion. Both pitchers were weak and .were batted hard. Clancy had poor control yesterday and was far from Jus best The score: Meriden A.B. R. B.H. P.O. . A. E At New London.

' That was decided at a confer ence yesterday between Manager Han Ion of the Brooklyns and Manager Rob inson of the Baltimores. In exchange for Jennings Brooklyn gets . Hayden, one of Baltimore's crack outfielders, who will join the team in Cincinnati. Jennings went to Baltimore last night. " There has been some talk of ringing in a few staT players by some of the teams in the league in order to win the pennant, but it might just as well be stated right here that players coming here under assumed names to play on certain teams will have to show a clean slate before they will be consid ered eligible. This pennant be won on its merits this season, as It was last, or it will not be won at all. "Mike" Buck of Vincennes, Ind, is on his way to join Springfield, and will be there to-morrow. A letter was received 'by Manager Connor yester day explaining that he had to wait for pay day to get what was coming to him. Buck, says (he can get Roger a crackajack pitcher if" he wants him. Buck is the mail "Rube" Vickers re commended as a fine hitter, catcher, first baseman and fielder. ' 1 CITY AMATEUR LEAGUE. A Very Important and Far Reaching Rule Adopted Last Night. All the clubs were represented at the meeting of the City v Amateur league which was held at ? the rooms of the St Joseph's T. A. society.. Ow ing to the fact that many, of the play ers would not be here on July 4 and also because of the numerous excursions which are leaving Waterbury on that day it was decided to call off all the games scheduled for that day. A warm discussion then followed re lative to the question of allowing play ers of the various teams to desert their teams on many Saturdays and play in other cities with semi-professional , teams.' It ' was - Intended last' night to discipline a couple of players who had persisted in playing last. Sat urday, but.it was decided to give all the players one more chance and to that effect one of the strongest and most binding rules yet in use in the league was adopted unanimously. This rule is as follows: Any team in the City ' Amateur league who shall participate in any other game of baseball with any other team, semi-professional or otherwise, in this city, or any other city, aside from the teams In this league, on any Saturday on which the teams of the City league are scheduled to play, or any other day in which the schedule calls for games in the City league, shall be suspended for the balance of the season. Any team which uses a player after his suspension will for feit all games in which that player has participated. f In this connection it might be well to state that any manager who knows of this rule being violated is supposed to report to ihe president of the league and, after careful consideration of the matter aiid a search of the facts in the case the president will authorize the suspension of the guilty player or the forfeiture of the games played with a suspended player in the lineup. This suspension and this forfeiture will take, effect immediately after the de cision has. been rendered by the presi dent of the league. 1 .. ' The dispute between the Pastime and the Merrimac teams as to the forfeiture of a game to the Pastimes for the non appearance of the Merrimacs on last Saturday, was settled by the Pastimes being given the game. A committee consisting of Managers Madden of the Brooklyns, Lydon of the St Josephs and Thompson of the North Ends was appointed to complete all the arrangements for the schedule for the first Saturday following the declaration of the end of the trolley strike. This committee also has in charge another very important matter which will in time be unfolded. The next meeting of the league will be held one week fr6m next Tuesday. . City Amateur. Notes. Charles Brennan, the former man ager of the Consolidated team, it was announced last night at the meeting, has been elected an assistant manager of the Washington Hills. . An effort ls being made to ring Dan Cook into the City . league ctace more, but this effort will fail. Cook cannot pitch in this league under any circum stances. He has been paid for play ing for years and last sea son, when there was some talk of his playing with one of the teams the manager of the team was advised not to play him, as the game would be de clared forfeited. "President Maher of the Merrimacs represented that club at the meeting last night, Manager Robert Hayes being absent. THE PUGILISTS. No Other Boxing: Club For On STRAY BITS OF SPORT.

The Attempt to Start One Stopped by the Authorities Con Coughlin, the Irish Giant, Is Not a Good Financier Bob Fitzsimmons and the Cham pion Belt. ; . Buffalo, July 3. Jim Kinney's at tempt' to establish an athletic club at Windsor, Ontario, under the boxing laws of Canada, for the purpose of conducting fistic battles, has proved a dismal failure. The police author ities of Windsor notified the Buffalo fight promoter yesterday morning that any attempt on Ms part to pull off a fboxing bout in Windsor would result in his arrest. Wihen Kinney received the notification from the 'police he im mediately declared off the scheduled 20-round contest between Matty Mat thews of Brooklyn and Otto Sieloff of Chicago, which was to have taken place in Windsor to-night The meet ing of Matthews and Sieloff was to have (been the Initial contest before Kinney's new club. Matty Matthews, accompanied by Tommy West and his manager, Marvin 'Smith, arrived here yesterday from New York. Matthews will proTably remain' here and assist Gardner - in his preparation for his fight with Root POLO GROUND FIREWORKS. Jack Root, who will meet George Gardner at Fort Erie to-morrow night for the title of lightweight champion of the world, is known among fighters as the king of dudes.- He changes . his clothes twice a day, or oftener. He delights in late cuts and odd .materials. He is partial to "glass" In his ties and shirt fronts. ' The famous Chicago mid dleweight was born in Austria. He took the name.of Root because his orig- final name was so unpronounceable that no one could bet on him at the ring side. Root is well built for , fighting. He, has a thick neck and very broad shoulders. His ' arms are - unusually powerful. His wrists are thick, like Fitzsimmons's, and their, weight adds much to the force of hisf solid blows. His' hands are large and solid, with thick, stubby fingers, ideal battering rams for ring purposes. .-Gardner is the only man who ever knocked Root out. The fight was In Salt Lake. City. Itwas seventeen furious rounds. Gard ner pounded Root In the body until the Chicagoans' vitality . was all gone. The knockout blow landed with such force 'that Root could not be revived for a long time, and the report went out over the wires that he had been killed. But It takes more than a beating to dis pose of a good, ' "well trained fighter. The next day Root was around town without a mark to show thathe had been beaten. Since that time he has won from two of the strongest fighters in the ring, Marvin Hart and Kid Car ter. Both of these were in six-round bouts in Chicago. Root is essentially a short-distance fighter. His game is six-round fighting. In his entire ca reer as a fighter he has fought only four battles that have gone over seven rounds. One of these was a twenty round draw with -Australian Jimmy Ryan. One'jwas a fight with Carter in San Francisco, in which Root won on a foul in the fifteenth round, and one was the batle in which iie was whipped by;Gardner. He knocked out Byers in the ninth round. ,7 All of the other fights in which 'he hag Indulged have been short, many of them resulting in a knockout in a round or two. , He knocked out Creedon in a round. Billy stif t lasted two rounds . and. Dick O'Brien stayed three. . , Lightning, Wind an Rain. Stop the Game and Create Much Fear, t New York, July 3. When the torrid atmosphere was - reeking with moist ure yesterday afternoon a storm that was half tornado, half cloudburst swept. over the city. The storm ap proached from the northwest, and as it rolled along its ' inky clouds, low, floating, wind-driven, obscured the day. The storm's fullest force was felt at the. Polo grounds, v where the New York and St Louis clubs were to play. It was 2i30 p. m., the Giants had ap peared on the field for practice,, about 1,000 : persons were in the grand stand and bleachers, when the wind sudden ly and tremendously increased in force, picked up the dust twirled it in blind in spirals and hung.it like a . muddy veil over the grounds. Immediately forked lightning, which seemed dangerously near, played in ev ery direction ' through the blue-black clouds; an exhibition of mighty fire works that will not be equalled to morrow. The first stroke of lightning burned out most of the telgphones In the neighborhood and terribly fright ened women, children and timid men. Then the rain poured down In such great volume that the grounds ' were flooded in a few minutes. It was Im possible to find shelter. Driven in great sheets, the rain hurtled through the grand stand, which trembled and rocked under the storm's force. . ' The lightning struck an advertising fence near by on Eighth avenue and 150 feet of timber were cut into kindling-wood and toothpicks'in the quick est time on record. ' The temperature dropped so quickly that in ten minutes hail fell and hail stones big as a man's tfifcimbnail soon covered all Harlem. The surface cars and "L" trains were delaved and crowded to suffocation, the passengers refusing to alight and every one who could sought refuge in the cars from the stinging hail. Of course, the game was not played. JTew World's Mark Made. CHICAGO, July 3. Record breaking performances were, continued at Wash ington park, and one world's record be sides two track records were smashed. Glassful set a new world's mark for the mile and a sixteenth in the final race of the day, making the distance in 1:44 3-5.' Fred Leppert at the odds of 17 to 1 won the Quickstep stakes for two-year-olds and incidentally set a new track record of 47 seconds flat for the four furlongs, reducing the old rec ord four-fifths of a second. Leppert won by a nose, due to Dominlck's energetic ride. Don ' Domo led until the last jump, but a weak finish settled his chances. Sylvia Talbot won the fifth race and majde the track record of .1:19 cir-six aast-'c half. f;;rloj3s. ' , There is a halt in the negotiations be tween Con Coughlin, the Irish giant, and Bob Armstrong, who is also a giant, but not an Irish one. As every body knows,' the lengthy Bob is too dark to be a.descendant of the Danes, Sam Jb ltzpatricK . offered to put up . a $250 side bet on .Coughlin which John ny Mack, manager of Armstrong, threatened to cover. The original in tention of these two managers was to have Coughlin meet Tom Carey, "The Jabber," but Mack substituted Arm strong for reasons best Known to Mack, Now it looks as if both Armstrong and Carey would be neglected for Jack Munroe. . Fitzpatrick wants to have his Irishman fight the winner In Butte, Coughlin, besides being a handy boy with the gloves. Is a financial sharp and long on mathematics. Before Fitz patrick got him he had a fight in Louis ville with a guaranteed purse. "We'll give you eleven hundred dollars," said the club manager, before the bout. "Faith!" retorted Coughlin, setting his lips, "I won't put on a glove unless I get a thousand." He got it. Bob Fitzsimmons has formally chal lenged the winner of the Root-Gardner battle. "I never had a medal nor a belt" said Fitz. "and I'm after the trophy that Herman is hanging up for the light heavyweight championship. I've got a big chest and'a medal with diamonds would look well on the left side near, the watch chain." Fitz can make the weight, 170 pounds, without wilting his collar, and If that old wal lop is still nestling under the freckles on his shoulder blade he'll come pretty near to wearing the medal. Decoration Wins at Detroit,. DETROIT, M:ich., July 3. In a sen sational finish Decoration beat John J. Regan In the fifth event at Highland park, but Tod Walsh all but crowded the other horse into the fence, and the Judges disqualified Decoration and placed John J. Regan in front with Artist second and Jerry third. Three horses fell in the jumping race, but no injuries result. Sauber won the race in the stretch from Pat My Boy, who was fast tiring and just lasted to beat out Faraday, Jr., for the place. Orris Won at Del mar. ST.' LOUIS, July 3. Orris won the feature of the card at Delmar park at a mile and a sixteenth. The field of four horses got away nicely, with Orris first, Helen Print second and Pettijohn third. There was no change in posi tions during the whole distance, the horses finishing as above named within two lengths. - In the first race Hoe down ran into Sararose, who swerved clear across the track. Hoedown fell, slightly injuring the jockey. Sararose finished third, but was disqualified. MAY ENJOIN ELBERFELD. IN OUR South Main, Street Store You will find odd sizes at. 6.75.

Open Friday Evening, July 3, New York National League Club's At torneys' Preparing Papers. . Baseball harmony received: another jolt yesterday, and EOiberf eld!, the short stop of the New York Americans, may be restrained from playing. This is the latest chapter in baseball history growing out of the playing of George Davis with the New York Nationals. , The New York National league's at torneys yesterday were preparing the papers for an application to the sru-1 preme court for an! injunction to re strain Etlberfeld from playing. It is thought j the reported contem plated' actJon of the Chicago American league club, which, contends "that Davis belongs to it and it alone, bad a bear ing on the move yesterday of the or ganization headed by J. T. Brush.- The" New York Americans are due to play in New York to-morrow. Thpy are at present incapacitated by an la Jury to Third Baseman Gonroy, but have been playing fast iball of late in the west Wihen"' President Pulliam of the National league said Davis could play with the New Yorks It was on the ground that the American league broke the spirit-of the peace agreement by allowing Elberfeld to go to the New York Americans,, but while the Ameri can league presents a solid front in de claring that it .was entirely, within the (bounds of the peace agreement for El- fcerfeld to join Griffith's team, the Na tional league is by no means unani mous in the belief that it waa proper for Davis ' to play with McGraw's team. The latest move complicates matters, strains the already weakened! amicable relations, and the situation altogether ls a sweet mess.' ,. t ' WATERBOY WINS SUBURBAN. -Sneepshead Bay Track Record! Broken Favorite Was Third. New York, July 3. Before a crowd of , 30,000, J. B. Haggin's Waterboy, with Odum up, won the Suburban re newal, worth $12,000, at Sheepshead Bay yesterday. The black son of Watercress broke1 the track record for the mile and a quarter by covering the distance in 2 :04 3-5, which is two fifths of a second faster than the pre vious record made by the mighty Sal vator in 1890. The Brooklyn handi cap winner, Irish Lad, was second, and W. C. Whitney's Goldsmith, the favorite was a bad third. Blues showed the way around' the first turn and into the back stretch, with Irish Lad second. Going down the back stretch, Blues opened a gap of two lengths on Irish Lad with Wa terboy right at the latter's heels. The favorite was running in fifth position, and Irish Lad were running like a team. At the mile and an eighth pole Burns went to the whip and although the 3-year-old responded gamely, he was never able to head Waterboy, who gradually drew away and won by a length. "Irish Lad was second, seven lengths in front of Goldsmith. The fractional time of the race was as fol lows: 12 l-o, 24, 36, 48 1-5, 1:00 3-5, 1:13, 1:26, 1:39 1-5, 1:52, 2. -04 3-5.

MORRISSEY PAYS BILL, f Assumes Expense of George Harring , ton's Lawsuit ' Since the opening of the season Manager Morrissey has been of the opinon that the Norwich baseball club should settle tb bill of Officer Richard Connell, who has been subject to em barrassments, expense and a lawsuit as a result of his ordering Manager Harrington of the Waterbury team out of the press box last August. .Last year's management refused 'to pay it and the city also turned it down. Consequently there has been no regu lar police protection on the grounds this season, and the game has suffered materially, some of the fans refusing to attend as regularly as formerly. Of ficer Connell refused a benefit which Manager Morrissey offered him, con tending that putting Harrington off the grounds on the order of the umpire and Captain Tighe that either the club or the state league was responsible for the debt, which sould be paid in a reg ular way. .- Last week Manager. Morrissey told the officer that he should pay the bill if he had to do it -personally and after the team returned from New Haven last evening, he kept his word, hand ing Officer Connell the amount asked for and getting his receipt in full.; Noriwch Record.
