WHAT THEY ARE DOING Fitzsimmons Wants to Meet Monroe Before Jeffries Dixon is Rising Rapidly--McCoy in Training'. It Is likely that Jack Munroe may be seen in. another contest before he has it out -with Jim Jeffries next May "un less the champion objects. There is talk of having Munroe, meet Bob Fitz simnions at Philadelphia in n sis-round bout souVo time next month. The large crowd, which 'attended-the encounter between Munroe aud Tom Sharkey a week ago has convinced the promoters of that scrap that battles between big men, if conducted properly, will draw, and the same foiks are trying to bring Lanky Bob- and the miner together. Munroe and Sharkey drew over $9,XJO. Fltz knows this to be so, and when the proposition was made to him yesterday to fight Munroe at Philadelphia,". be said: "If the club will post $10,UOO or guarantee that amount X will meet Munroe. It's a cinch 'that if Sharkey and Munroe played to a $9,000 house we ought to have at least from $12,000 to $15,000. I am in fairly good shape now, ,witb the exception of my feet, which are still sore. But I am taking line care of myself and expect to be in real condition by the early , part of April. If Munroe wants to meet nie then, and tho dub puts up the money, aud Jeffries does not make a kick. I iwlirtake Munroe on." Bob also add ed that he would not mind taking a. try at Harry Placke, the Holland hea vyweight, who recently arrived in this country well recommended to tackle Jim Jeffries. Fltzs thinks that In jus tice to the sports Placke should engage in a bout to show what he can do be fore going against Jeffries. The Cor uishman added that he would not mind trying the foreigner out, provided the clubs would make it worth while. The sports hall a match, between Munroe and ) Fitzsimmons as just the proper thing. They contend that if. Munroe can stand Fitz off for six rounds he will make good bin right to fight Jef fries for the ' championship, Such n fight, many believe, would create a lot of interest and boost the sport all over the country, , , -,'.. -: - ' ' :v .

The clever negro lsi busy and never lets the op lKrtunlty of arranging a match es cape him. Dixon's latest match re sulted in a draw, although in the opin iou of many sports he was entitled to 1 he . verdict. The other , night, at the Wonderland, Ixhidon, Dixon met Johu ny Summers of Canning Town. in' a six round bout, -.'he "go" .went the limit and , was interesting. The opening round was lively, Dixou doing the bulk of the work. In the next two rounds Summers deemed to have the better of the struggle at long range, but Dixon hammered his rival on the body with such' effect that at the end of the fifth Summers was well winded. The last round was even. When the result was announced Dixon's ndnilrers raised ' a howl, but the referee's verdict stood. Dixon has been' negotiating for a match with Ben Jordan, but the chances of the two meeting does not look ;bright. Jordan -wants to fight Dixon at a certain club, which te negro does not care to do., He. is satis fied -to have the mill take plnce before the club giving the best purse. Dixon and Jordan met several years ago and the Englishman won t-e fight in twen-tv-flve rounds on points. The London Sporting Xife of February 22 prints the following about Dixon's plans and matches: 4In answer to the challenge emanating from Chester Goodwin, who lays claim to the . featherweight American title, Dixon is willing to box the last named twenty'. or twenty-five rounds with the smallest glove!? al lowed, at either 8st 8 lbs or 8t 10 lbs. the contest to take place in America at the end of April, for the brggest purse, which must be made known before Dlxoa leaves England. The , 30 ex penses to be allowed by Chester must accompany the articles of agreement to 'the Sporting Life, through '.which source all the arrangements must be made. The colored champion, who Jia failed to .draw Joe Bowker into a Snatch for the English title, has a cou- Iplpyof engagements to meet before de- partinc for the States, wuicn lie uoye to do In time to allow for three weeks' training."' , ;'--'.'

Report that Manager Cana van did not Want toStay in New Haven New YorK American Term., There is something1 remarkably pe culiar about tho attempt of Manager James Canaran jto remove the New. Haven team and franchise- from New, Haven to Worcester. The Democrat writer went on a still hunt Saturday and unearthed a few things that do not speak well for the one time pop ular manager, Jimmy Canavan. In the first 'place it was Intimated that Canavan was to come to Waterbury kind .look over the field here. Such a thing as that never took place. ' if Canavan did' come here, he 'came when the city was in slumber and not even a policeman got a ' glimpse of him. None of Jus friends in this city met him, nor did he approach those who would bo 4n a position to know ; whether baseball t coiId bo Played here this t season or not. lUght hr it might ., as wU be , stated that Waterbury at the time when Canavan ni'ado his trip to' Woi-cester was awaiting his visit to this city. He Would have been shown , over vtbe field and he would have been con vinced, if he oared to be, that Water bury was in a position to get grounds, and good grounds at 'that.' Whether those same conditions exist now , can not be stated with any degree of cer tainty. The people who were eager to get baseball " here ; were willing ' to spend money to make new grounds and get a chamionshlp team. After receiving the cold shoulder from Can avan, who ; was backed up by : the league,' those people do not feel like goings dowxi on their knees and beg ging the league to let Waterbury in. The (league should remember ' one thing, tliough; befoi-o the season is over the managers wlU.be very, very sorry that Waterbury was not picked! as a, representative. , t ' "Another thing In connection with New Haven andl her (franchise would be worth ; telling. The , Democrat writer in hls search through the base ball archive of the Elm City heard a report which was not verified, but it does look as if ? there was some truth in it This report was to the effect that Hugh Duffy, the former manager of the Milwaukee team, was a half owner of. the New Haven fran chise. I'i It you, will remember, all or about all of the players who left, New Haven for . bigger company, wont 5 to Milwaukee. t That was a significant fact taken 'hi connection with the re port about Duffy. Now. it Is said that Duffy wants, to. see the franchise go to Worcester "so that ' hlsi friend Kitrredge can get a bit of money out of tho game. Canavan ; was either willing or else Duffy bad the bigger say. r .-'-.. .,.v --, v.v', - In this connection it might be said that Oanava n claimed to have made $3,500 last season and $4,000 the sea son before. Even with thl split In two and Duffy getting half, rCanavan made a nice little sum, more. than he will ever make iln Worcester. To sum the whole tiling, up, it looks 'as though Jimmy Canavan- wanted to get that franchlso in Worcester for ' some stiwig reason or else he was making a bluff, thiinking some ierson or per sona would pay him a big sum foi the franchise and1 keep It Jn i.jw Ha ven He overlooked Waterbury, evi dently tor the same reason, although he or " someone else reported In the1 Masachusettg papers i that " Waterbury was not prepared for baseball this year. Waterbury . could have been prepared and Waterbury is worth two Worcesters. Watei'buiy is" not so good as New Haven, but if New Haven cannot get grounds Waterbury ds the best cholce , for the league to make. The' Democrat Is not in a po sition to. state whether the gentlemen who wanted" to start the team ar6 willing to do so now, but they might be if there are no strings on tiie land ing of the franchise &nd ,Jf given the word at once. : ( New lork, March 7. The deal by which the New York American league Club has secured Pitcher Jack Powell from ' t Louis in exchange for Pitcher Harry Howell and $8,0UO cash will further convince baseball enthusi asts that President Gordon and Treasurer Farrell are making heroic efforts to place a team in the field this year that will give the Boston world's champions , a desperate fight for the American league pennant. Powell Is one of the greatest pitchers In the country, in 1001 he pitched Christy Matthewsou to a standstill in several games at the Polo grounds. Ho is a strapping big fellow, with tre. mendous speed, a . magnificent slow ball and knows the value of control. Ills engagement here means that the New York Americans have the best pitching corps in the two big leagues, bar none, and that Griffith's team, with Towell, McGuire, Hughes- and Anderson in line, is DO per cent stronger than last year. Treasurer Farrell said yesterday in regard to the big deal: "President Hughes of the St Louis Americans at first wanted Pitcher Toni Hughes, recently secured from Boston, in exchange for Powell, but I told him that we needed Hughes right here. Powell did not wtuit to stay in St Louis and Hedges knew it, so wnen Griffith . wired on Saturday morn ing that he could get Powell for How ell and $8,000, I immediately wired him to close tho deal and lost no time in forwarding a check for the amount named. I want to have a champion ball team and I think that my plans will, be successful. Griffith has had full v power to secure anybody he wanted, and when the deal for Pitch er Mullen of Detroit fell through he went after Powell. With McGuire, Beville and Kiel now' behind the bat, and Chesebro, Hughes, Powell, Grif fith, Wolfe, Bliss and Pjtmaun in tho BASKETBALL TWO VERY CLOSE GAMES Crescents are Again Tied with the Business Men The Monitors and Eagles Fight Hard to the Finish v Two of the' closest played basketball games of the season took place at the 1.

YALE ENGAGES QUARTERS Varsity Boat Race with Harvard will ; ' be Rowed o June 30. .,, New Ixndbn, : March 7.--The Yale crew, will occupy its. old .quarters this season at Gales Ferry, despite !all reports to the- contrary. Frank Dodge, manager of -the 'varsity eight, accom panied by John ' Kennedy, ; the . coach, visited " Gales ' Ferry , Saturday and made arrangements with the heirs of Captain Christopher. Brown for , the old, quarters. After arrangements were made for the quarters- Manager Dodge announced " that the date, of the 'varsity race would beJune 30. box, the New Y'ork .Americans lutve all the other maojr league teams beat a block. as to batteries. We shall play Ganzel. Williams. Conroy and Elber fleld in the fnfield with Anderson, Fultz and Keeler in the outfield a pretty hot ball team for anybody to tackle. ; ' , - . . "I wou'd give the entire gross re cefpts to charity if McGraw's team woud consent to play us three games here before the opening of , the cham-' plonship season. It would not be gate receipts , that I would eek by such a series, but simply to show to thousands who have not yet realized the strength of the American league that we are able to put it all over the so-called Glants,' any time and any place. If , Brush Aud McGraw wero not afraid of being shown up, they would play us in a minute, but they Lknow that whjle they have only a fair ball team they are going to tackle the other National 1 league clubs, which, barring Pittsburg, . would not stand ri chance to win the championship of the Eastern league. "I want to ealj the attention of, tho New York public to just one 'thing of Interest. McGraw's men open the season with nineteen straight games against the Boston, Philadelphia and Brooklyn teams, which are all weak and unable to put up a lig'ht. This will enable McGraw's men to take a big lead at' the outset of the season with the idea of creating a furore in this city. But things would be decid edly different if McGraw's men were in tho American - league, where they would find real ball teams and no quitters. There is a big fight on in this city and the time-has conic for tho New York American league club to assume ".the offensive. If Brush and McGraw have such a Wonderful ball team why dont they play us a series to settle the question of 5 su premacy and let local charities have the benefit of the money taken at the gate? We are ready at any - time to do business and we can make good; too." , . - . - r Tobogganing is one of the most pop ular sports of Switzerland.' In this little republic long runs are built in the winter when the hills are cov ered with snow, and exciting races are held. , The. Cresta run at St. Moritr is one of the most popular and difficult; the peculiarity of it Is that it is a crooked run. The length: of it Is 1,450 yards and the drop is 550 feet. ' and it turns sham cor- A Flying Start. ners. To turn sharp corners while sliding at headlong speed can be seen by any amateur to be diffi cult. ; The danger 4s of being shot right out of the course : and this danger, is .obviated by banking up the snow at the side of the course where the cor ners occur. ' The banks are not so steep but that the tobpgganer who races at them recklessly may race right over them and find himself expelled, toboggan and all, into the deep soft snow beyond their confines. His prob lem is to steer round these corners, and C negotiate these difflcultlesthe difficulties, for instance, of Churchleap and Shuttlecock and Battledore as fast as he possibly can without being so expelled; and hV has also tomaster the art of falling without hurting him self, in case he is expelled. He lies fiat on the toboggan, careering' down the hill, head foremost, after a flying start, and he steers as best he can. Of old,, tobogganers used to steer by means of sticks. At the present tme the steer ing is done by means of a steel toe-cap fastened to the boot, and serving alike as a rudder and as a brake. In spite of . the necessity ; of using the brake pretty freely , at the corners, the best men attain a most prodigious Bpeed. The early winners traveled at the rate of about 30 miles an hour, but (the later winners have averaged more than 40. Each' competitor has J to : take, three runs ; his times are added together, and the prize goes to the man who makes the beat total on the three heats. The highest speed is, naturally, attained on the straight at the en3 ' of the run. Speeds verging on 80 miles an 'hour have been recorded on this portion of the . course;? the record for the whole course being about 66 . seconds, t The course , ends . with a, leap", tpbogganist and toboggan being shot together "into the iair. .The. same kind of sport may, of course, be had on the bobsleigh; but earnest ' tobogganlsta confine them selves the skeleton racing machln From selling ' peanutB at the chutes at San Francisco to the idolized jockey; of the California racing public is the wonderful transition of Jock ey Charles Hllde brand.

Hildebrand. had in the early '90's or Tojd Sloan in the late '90'a. -"Hildebrand was born at Gilroy, a little town 100 miles south of San Franesco, Just 17 years ago. He is. thin and wiry and can make 33 pounds. This lad never rode a race until last winter at Ingleside, when he had the mount on Escarola. He rodo his first winner ' at . , Oakland, when , Sterling Towers . flashed first past , the post. After the good jockeys ' went east Hildebrand tried numerous mounts and gave great promise: He figured prominently during the Seattle meeting, and frequently rode two' and three winners during an . afternoon. Hildebrand Buccess during the Cali fornia racing season !haa been phenom enal. He piloted 39 winners in 20 racing days. Hildebrand is a marvel at the post,; and can ride out in front or make a waiting pace. . Hildebrand first started to gallop horses for "Curley" Shields, who had the MacDonough string. Dick Ledgett secured a' contract on Hilde brand and sold it out to Vic Gilbert. Joe Yeager recently secured ' the boy, from Gilbert, and he will be seen on the Chicago tracks this summer.

Livingstone once said that only the railroad could deal the death blow to slavery,, and this is in a large measure true. Where the railroad has poked Its iron nose' through the jungles of what Stanley has called "Darkest" Africa," there has Britain been able to deal most successfully with the slave raiders and put down the awful traffic. In 1901 the British government secured 25 coayic tlpns of persons engaged in buying and selling slaves in the Soudan. But not withstanding the effort to Suppress the traffic, there are said to be 12 well-to-do slave merchants at Jedda, and the prices of slaVes there ranges from ?80 for male or female 14 years old to $150 for those from 20 to 30 years old. In Medina and Mecca, within the Turkish domain,' the prices of both sexes rise 50 per cent.' and upward. ': But in the portions of Africa over which Britain and Germany and other European powers hold. -, suzerainty, there Is not only persistent ai d de termined effort to stop slave raiding, but to eradicate the present slave hold ings. In her western possessions, Ger many has declared a gradual, abolition of slavery, as in German East Africa, which has met with universal approval. Germany's aim is not only to exterminate slave raiding, but to put down domestic slavery itself. A, beginning has been made by requiring masters to give all bondmen one-third of their time , in which to work for themselves. Masters must also care for slaves in illness and old age.';' - In German East Africa, which lies to the south of British East Af rica, between the equator and the tenth degree of, south latitude, the imperial chancellor some time ago approved an ordinance looking to the gradual emancipation of house servants. 'The ordinance provides that In the future ' no person shall be come enslaved either , through volun tary sale of their persons, by Authority of their parents, through debt, or as a .TYPES OF GERMAN KAST AFRICAN - , ; SLAVES. punishment; ; all of these '- forms of slavery having 1 existed up to the pres ent tim. 1 , s Persons . now in condition of slavery are allowed to buy. their freedom on pay ment of a sum to be fixed by the admin dstrative .authority of the district in which they live. ' Upon payment of this sum a "Frelbrlef," or certificate bf manu mission is to be given them. Slayes are allowed two days each week to work for themselves. Masters are compelled to support slaves In sickness, as in Ger man West Africa, and in old age. Slaves may be transferred from one master, to another only-. with' the consent of the slaves themselves, which must be'given. before an administrative authority. At each transfer such authority is required to examine carefully the legal character of the transaction and to ascertain If a legal relation of slavery actually exists. Members of the same family may not be separated - from each .' other ; by such transfer without their consent. Any serious neglect or, injury on part of a master, results in the freedom of the slave. Upon hearing of any such in jury or neglect the competent author ity is required to Investigate, even in case no complaint is made by either party, and should It be ascertained that the slave, by reason of the owner's fail ure to comply with the laws has a legal claim upon manumission, the public of ficial Is required to grant such manumis Blon without any payment of damages to the owner. . - . . - During the fiscal year 1902-03 a total pf 2,420 letters of freedom were issued, against 2,037 the previous year. Of these 732 were on account of purchase of free dom, 675 for "voluntary relinquishment of ownership, and 965 on account of offi cial declaration of freedom through death of the master, and for other causes 57 slaves received their freedom. From these figures it may be seen that the reform is bearing Its fruit. It Is hoped that in the near future It will be possible to declare the freedom of all those born after a certain date, as soon as prospects for the protectorate to ob tain a modern economic basis through an improvement of its commercial con ditions as a substitute for the present one, based upon slave labor, are appar ent. , ;'-." - " . ; 3 ' i Radium.

The time for forty-five yards was 23 seconds, which completely eclipses all former records, and especially the long standing one by Bishop. , 1 , r Oavill never lost ; his form and ploughed along and after passing sixty yards began slowly to creep up on tho darky. Twenty yards from the finish "Wickham led Cavill by a head and shoulders, yet five yards further on Ca vill was level, and then ensued one of the grandest struggles ever seen in a swimming race. At the second turn, which was ninety yards, both touched together and the time was 51 3-5 sec onds, a new world's record. , . However, Cavill made a better turn and had a slight advantage when they straight ened out. for the finish a few yards away. Amidst the greatest excitement Cavill won by a yard In 58 seconds.
