Yet the New York Americana are second, land no team in the country is playing bet ter ball. ' ' Chesbrd is either the best pitcher in the country or close ithereabouts. He has won fifteen games this season and lost three. Only . Philadelphia and Cleveland have beaten him, and x he has trimmed them all. The hits off average 6 10-18 a game.

The action was brought by the widow and daughter of the deceased. Altizer left for Philadelphia on the 31:32 train to-day. He expects to get la job with some independent club in Pennsylvania. He made a proposition ito Manager Kennady Sunday to re sume playing with the understanding that he be given his release at the end of the season. The answer was the handing to him of official notice of his suspension and & fine of $100 for his desertion of the team Friday as recommended in the Journal Satur day. Altizer as soon as he read the notice proceeded to pin it to a tele graph pole. Meriden Journal. A funny mistake occurred in the game last Mondav between the Boston Americans and the Father Mathew Temperance society team. The Bos ton G!obe tells of it as follows: "At the beginning of the ninth Collins in quired what the score was and was to:d P to 4 in his favor. The game continued until the eleventh, With tbe champions trying .-their best, but being unable to score. In the last of the eleventh a double by Rutherford and a single by Birmingham brought in a run and apparently won the game. Later it was discovered that Boston had made four runs in the fourth in stead of the three credited by the scorer who gave Collins the infor mation as to how the game stood, -and that in reality the game should have ended at the close of the ninth with the score in favor of Boston. The umpire decided that Farther Mathew had won fairly as both teams had wil lingly played the eleven innings. FUTURE OF CLARKSON. Walter Clarkson, the mighty Har vard pitcher, denies tnat he has signed' a contract with the American league, and some Observers seem skeptical of the denial. But of course Clarkson will sign no professional contx-act until he is through with the college season, for the obvioui reason that his amateur status in the series with Yale would be knocked endwise. And if there is one thing the -arvard twirler would lite better than another it is to com plete a four years' record of straight victories against the sns of Ell.- Is in better "form than ever this year despite the fact that Princeton got away with the first big game with Harvard. But a pitcher who can shut out the Andover team without a soli tary hit and allow only twenty-nine men to come to the bat is at the top of the college class. That he will go into professional ball, following in the wake of his famous brother John, seems very probable. This is a famous year for college talent in th league. Cromley of Georgetown and Lynch of Brown have already joined the game in which "Christy" Mathewson is a shining light. This trend may be a good thing for base bell, but it is open to argu ment in its Influence on the status of a university education. . Certainly the founders and present heads of our lead ing universities and their benefactors have aimed to build up centers of cul ture and sound learning, rather than, athletic factories. The rules of the WRESTLING, THE PUGILISTS ARRANGEMENTS TO-NIGHT Meeting of Representatives of Conrad and Lavvson to Close a Match Jim Parr About Gotch Victory. To-night at 8 o'clock the representa tives of Conrad of Oakville and Law son of Naugatuck will meet in the Democrat office to make arrangements for a wrestling match for $100 a side. That this will be one of the best matches ever pulled off in this City there is not the slightest doubt. Both are about the same weight and equally clever, and each has a large number Of friends who would back their man to the limit. Conrad has a win from young Brennan; Who is ill with appen dicitis, and Lawson hag a thirty-minute draw with him. Whether the match is pulled off in Oakville, Naugatuck or Waterbury, it should draw a big house. LUNDIN FELL DOWN. . Clarence Bouldin, the Cuban wonder, won from Hjalmar Lundih in a handi cap catch-as-catch-eari wrestling con test Tuesday night at Worcester. By the conditions of the match Luudin was to throw Bouldin twice In an hour. He failed to put the1 Oubafl to the floof at any time, which gave the victory to Bouldin. It was the greatest struggle that has ever taken place on a mat in Worcester. Lundih, working desper ately, punished the little fellow badly, arid showed almost superhumaii strength. Bouldin, On th other hand, displayed wonderful cleverness and speed, which qualities brought him out safely. ' GOTCH AGAINST PARR. Frank Gotch, the champion wrestler, will engaged in a match with Jim Parr at Buffalo on Monday night. Parr says: "Gotch beat Jenkins on a fluky foul under cbndltions hot at all credita ble to Gotch or his friends. They had Jenkins out there In the far west, With the referee and the crowd all against big Tom. Gotch used all i kinds of rough : tactics. He niugged' Jenkins, and came near jabbing his one good eye blind. Then in a mix-up off the mat Gotch got a rolling fall, and the referee allowed the fail." JENKINS IS MATCHED. London, June 23. Jenkins, the wrestler, is- matched to meet Gruhn, the amateur ex-champion, for 200 a side and the championship of the world, catcn-as-catch-can. a week after Jenkins meets Hackfenschmidt An Old Custom at Harvard. CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 23. Ac cording to the custom at Harvard col lege, on the night before the annual baseball game with Yale the Harvard nine was given an ovation at the Har vard unio A. The speeches were made by Coach Orville S. Franta and.Dr. B. H. Nichols, the graduate adviser of the team. Dudley Dean, a Harvard baseball player, who was graduated in 1891, presented souVenir gold baseballs to the members of last year's nine and the members of this year's nine who have played in games in which Yale was defeated. Coach Frantz said that the Harvard team was not overconfi dent, but was prepared to make Yale play her best. fieldame Got Mermaid Stake. NEW YORK, June 23.-Beldame, at 11 to 20, won the Mermaid stakes, for three-year-old . fillies, one mile arid a furlong, at Shepshead Bay. Carrying 120 pounds she went to the front in the first few strides and gradually increas ed her lead to the finish, winning easily by eight lengths in 1:54 2-5. Another track record was broken here by Lady Amelia in the second race. She ran the six and a half furlongs in 1:19 flat, which Is one-fifth of a second faster than the previous record made by Glennellie in 1901. It acinar at Fair Ground. ST. LOUIS, June 23. Pretension and Frank Collins were the winning favor ites of a fair card at the fair grounds. Old Stone, Judge Himes and Flying Torpedo, World's Fair handicap candi dates, met in the feature event. Old Stone won easily, Judge Himes and Flying Torpedo finishing in the ruck. Royal Henley Regatta have been criti cized as undemocratic in their restric tions, yet the following authoritative comment on the rules seems to point i moral not at all illogical or unwhole- : some in theory and practice. , it (the Henley Regatt) has held itself aloof from that half-way class of competitor who is an amateur only that he may make capital : ultimately : out of. success gained In this charac-i ten" . t This explains why Ten Eyck was un popular when he rowed for the dia mond, sculls, and it explains why the Clarksons; Cromleys and . Lynches would be disliked Were they competing against English university sportsmen. From the Illustrated Sporting rsews DOE WANTS HIS MONEY. Worcester, June 23. The refusal of ' the Connecticut base ball league direc tors to sanction the sale of five players of the Worcester team to the New Bed ford team is likely, to lead to unoleas ant complications for M. J. Kittredge. He was behind m salaries and agreed to the sale of five men to Fred Doe, manager of the New Bedford team, for $1,000, which was paid. The league directors havet decided that the sale cannot be made. Now Doe wants either his $1,000 or the players. He says that If necessary he will secure injunctions restraining every man from playing, even if he has to pay their salaries : pending a decision. KILLED BY FOUL BALL. . Indiana, Pa, June 28. Grove Thom as, catcher .for the Babcock base ball team of .Tonnstown, was instantly killed Monday afternoon by being struck by the bajl after it had been hit a glancing foul blow, by the batter. The ball struck Thomas over the heart. Thomas rose after being struck, turned toward his wife, who was In the grand stand, smiled reassuringly, and fell for- ! ward on his face. He died half an hour later., LITTLE DOING IN THE80PED CIHCLE Forty game sports, closed mouthed and' to be depended on, paid ?5 each early yesterday morning to witness a fast f our-rOun prize fight between Jack Vance and Joe Cohen, both of Coney Island. The fight was a jierce one from the start. Vance has some ability, and Is known as a hard, game boxer. Cohen is not a fighter from a professional point of view, but nas the reputation of being a handy man in a scrap. , By "profession" he is a waiter. Vance at the present time is also a waiter. The men met in a rear room j in a hotel that is near to the corner of Surf and Stillwell avenues, Coney Island. A little man who at one time j handled an English bantam champion was referee, while each man was sec : onded by men known in pugilistic Cir cles. The battle waged fast, Vance managing to ward off tho rushes of 1 Cohen, constantly stabbing him . with . his left hand until near the end of the ! fourth round Cohen was fought to a standstill and his seconds were forced to throw np the sponge. Both men Were badly used up. The purse. $200, was divided between the men, $125 to Vance and $50 to Cohen: The balance was split up between the seconds and helpers. WALCOTT AND DONOVAN. Joe Walcott will spar Mike Donovan of Rochester, N. Y. at Baltimore on i Friday night. -Walcott . and Donovan j have met in the ring on two previous occasions, and Walcott has still to j lower his colors. Donovan s has the credit of two ten-round draws with the I Barbadoes wonder. The first of the contests took place In New York and the other In Pittsburg. But Donovan was clearly outclassed m tne nrst con test. ' ' " BRITT AND CORBETT. The contest between Jimmy Brltt and Young Corbett may take place be fore December next. The articles of agreement Call for th mill to take place at San Francisco, but now comes an offer from a club in St Louis. The West End A. C. of St Louis, It is said, is ready to give the men 70 per cent of the gate receipts to fight twenty rounds in October. Brltt is at present In St Louis land thinks so well of the proposition that he has put It up to Corbett. The latter Is considering It and may have something to say be fore the week is out. Brltt intends to remain in St Louis for b. month and then go to the Pacific coast. If every thing is satisfactory he will post a forfeit to show that he is in earnest and will request ithe club to do the same. , ' ' . NEIL AND M'GOVERN. Should Hughey McGovern agree he can hay the much coveted chance of meeting Frankie Nell, the bantam champion, for six rounds before the Waverly A. C, Chicago, on June 27. This organization is ready to give the lads a percentage to meet on that date. Neil has already accepted, but it is not at all probable that McGovern will consent to fight ait such short notice. However. If the date is set aside, -gay for two weeks frbm' Jitine 27, McGov ern will take the champion on. Should McGovern be unable to face Nell, Tommy Lane of Philadelphia ig will ing to step Into the breach and meet the Calif ornian. ' NORTH POLE FOR JACK ROOT. Jack Root, the Chicago middle weight, has , been offered $2,500, win, lose or draw, for a ten round bout with Joe Choynski of California at Dawson City during the latter part of July. Root has accepted the club's offer, and puts It up to Choynski. M'GOVERN-HANLON AT FRISCO? San Francisco. June 23.-A telegram has been received from Sam - Harris Asking that the San Francisco clubs; put In bids for the McGovern-Hanloni fight, Harris wants to have the bout decided here, as he thinks , there is three times the money mere tnat tnere Is any other place fighting is allowed. THE BASEBALL PRESSBOX. Where ' Reporters and Professional Scorers Keep Track of Our Hational Game. At the grounds where the prof essidnal .clubs play baseball, you may have no ticed a small boxlike structure perched on the roof of the grand stand. Its posi tion directly back of home plate and on a lino with the pitcher is the best possi ble for a view of the game, writes Allan P. Ames, in "How ,to Keep a Baseball Score," in St. Nicholas, and if you are lucky enough to be lnvited up by some of those who have a right there, you will be surprised to find how much better you can watch what is going on than from a seat nearer the ground. , This little house with the wire netting ! over the front to guard against foul files is called the press or scorers' box. The . young men who sit there have need of every facility for observing the game, because afterward they must present an absolutely accurate record of it. If the contesting nines belong to an im portant league and play in a large city there will be an official scorer for each club, besides reporters from each of the dally newspapers. The scorers have to record every move of the game and, when it is over, present to the managers of their clubs a complete set of figures, from which anybody who underrstands the sport can tell exactly what each player has done how well or how poor ly he has played. Watch a scorer at work. Before him is an open book with the names of one club written down the left-hand side' of one page and those of the opposing team inscribed on the page opposite. After each name is 4 line of checker-board squares, curiously marked off, and at the end of these on the right of each page are several perpendicular columns headed A B, R, 1 B, S B, S H, P O, A, and E, for the summary. These stand for,respectively, times at bat, runs, the times a player has reached first basev stolen bases, sacrifice hits, put-outs, as sists and errors. The symbols used by professional scorers are comparatively few and easy to remerqber, and anyone familiar with the game ought to be able to use them after half an hour's stud? followed by a little practice. St" r -"" M omfor ' f ; That is fable iL7 A UTOMOBILES S'T'nf : ' i-m ','-'h-" Qrders Filled at Ono The E. H, TOWLE CO. ATHLETICS Cresceus, til Iring of trotters, has toade himself and his owner famous the world over, and th mighty achieve in e n t s of the famous stallion are Indelibly embla?- j oned on the pages : of harness turf history- While much has been said and written about Cresceus and hit remarkable c a -reer, the general public hasl never been acquainted G. K. Ketcham. wlth the circum stances Which were responsible for his being known to the trotting world. Some years ago Gebrg H. Ketcham, a prominent business man of Toledo, O., decided to engage in the breeding and racing of harness horses, hoping there- j by to regain the vigor and strength of which- impaired health had deprived him. He purchased the pacing gelding Charley Frlel, 2:16, and droVe exhibi tions over the Ohio half-mile tracks, re ducing many track records. Then he founded what is now known as , the Ketcham stock fatm, one of the insst promJkent breeding establishments in Ohio. In 1892 he paid; $250 at auction for the mare Isabel, by Mambrlno Howard, and the following year mated her with Robert MoGregor 2:17, whom he had secured to head hid stud. The produce was a chestnut colt, who -was. named Cresceus, after a favorite slave of Caesar. Mr. Ketcham deyeloped the colt and started him twice in his two-year-old form, making an extensive campaign, with him In 1897, when he was three-year-old. The race which first directed the attention of the en tire harness turf to the Ketcham colt ' was the one he trotted that season at Fort Wayne, Ind., when he deftated a large field of aged trotters in one of the hardest fought turf battles on record, winning the sixth, seventh and eighth heats in 2:12i4, 2:11U ana 2:114, the greatest race ever credited to a three-year-old trotter. His wonderful career is tod well known to require extensive mention, a brief review of his per formances showing that he reduced no less than 20 world's records, most of which are still to his credit, setting new records over .22 tracks, starting Jh 65 races and exhibitions, of which he won 45, earning in purses $110,000, and trav- elmg 12,000 miles during the season of 1901. Thus Mr. Ketcham's search for health, was not only awarded with sue- cess, but he also gained the proud dis tinction of having bred; bwned, trained and driven a world's champion, while his venture earhexl for him a small for tune. The remarkable success "of he achieved in training and racing Cres ceus proves him a high class condition ed and rein sm an. By his recent victory in the British amateur golf championship Walter J.
