At Hartford . Hartford, June 29. Clarence -Quinn outpltched Billy Foxen In the ball jgame yesterday, as the New Havens were able to hit the ball when men were on bases. New Haven secured a lead in the seventh by the ragged work of Johnson in the field .and Conway rubbed It into Foxen in the ninth, when he called balls on him that split the plate. Other than the judgment oil balls and strikes in that Inning Conwtfy umpired in an impartial manner. The Hartfords rather outshone their op ponents in fielding, Quigley and Daly making several sensational stops and getting their men.

Yesterday's, game with Bridgeport degenerated into a miserable farce. Hodge was taken out In the third Inning and Perkins, Meri den's former third baseman, put in. He received" wretched support from the Meriden fielders and several of the hits credited Bridgeport 'should have been fielded. Foster and Clark for the vis itors batted hard, getting four hits each.

Before a throng of 8,000 persons yesterday the Crimson of Harvard was trailed in the dust by Yale at base ball. The game was fast and replete with good plays. AH the Yale graduates last night pa raded behind their respective bands, celebrating the first commencement vic tory over Harvard in four years. There were Indians in full war paint, clowns in blue and white, sailors in oilskins, .Uncle Sams, old-fashioned gentlemen in drab dusters and bell-crowned hats, and automobile drivers with horns and goggles. . After the game all the grad uates tumbled on the field and zig zagged and rejoiced until the bands, costumes and classes were mingled in indescribable confusion. Harvard was outplayed at the bat and in the field. Madtay, the big Yale pitcher, was in superb form and kept Harvard's hits well scattered. Captain Winslow's throwing to bases was dead ly, and, the whole Yale team played well, especially Cote and Barnes In the field. Harvard's fielding was ragged, but Kernan accepted nine chances and i Carr made a wonderful stop of O'Brien's drive. Yale scored in the first inning. O'Brien walked, took third on a passed ball ana scored on Huiskamp's single. In Yale's half of. the sixth the Elis landed on Coburn good and hard. Mil ler hit safely, went to second on .a passed ball, and scored m Cote's drive over second. Bowman singled, and Cote went to third on Mccarty's fum ble. Bowman stole second, and Barnes scored them both with a ripping hit to right. Greenough let the hit get away, and Barnes took third. Winslow struck out, Chittenden's hit scoring Barnes. In the seventh, Fischel banged one to the ropes In left field and scored. MeCarty hit in the same direction, but Cote captured the ball on a dead run -with his back to It. Greenough ground ed to Chittenden. Kernan knocked foul fly back of third, and Cote, by a great sprint, made another wonderful catch. For Yale, Kernan took O'Brien's grounder, Hulskamp singled. took second on a wild pitch and scored on Miller's drive. The score: ' " R.ii.E.

Henry Martens has been appointed an umpire in the Connecticut league O Easily discouraged ? Things look ? Can,t sIeeP ? Restless and Ask him to tell you all about tor bo years. NEWS to take the place of Umpire Mulcahy, who has resigned. Martens received his appointment from Dennis Riordau last night and will umpire to-day in Bi'idgeport. To-morrow he will visit New Haven and Friday and Saturday he will be in New London. Martens is well known because of his basket ball playing. He Is one of the great est basketball players in this section of the country and was captain of Springfield's first professional team. He has also played baseball to a con-,1 siderable extent . and has umpired many of the semi-professional games in this vicinity. He has also refereed basketball games and made good as an official. He knows Dosetaii tnor oughly and Is also competent to run player?. Therefore there, is. no good reason why he should not make a suc cess in his new venture. Providence has made an offer of $1,000 for Anderson of the New York American league. ' Peloquin and Sullivan, the battery for the Willimantic team, is said to be fast enough for the state league. Herman Long, who in . his prime was considered the best shortstop in the country, has asked for and receiv ed his release by the Toledo club and has retired from the game. Ban Johnson, to whom was referred the matter of selecting an umpire for the series of games between Rockville and Manchester, has recommended that Tim Hurst be secured. Kip Selsbach of the Washington team was fined $100 last week for drinking a bottle of beer at dinner time. !The following day he made five errors in the game and has been indefinitely suspended. Pitcher Mathewson received an In jury in the game with Boston last Thursday which will keep him out of the game for several days. In ; field ing the last ball of the game he split his right hand between the thumb and the finger, and -it required three stitch es to close it. , - ' ' THE AMATEURS. Efforts Being Made to Get Naug'atncK to Play the Benefit Game. The managers of the City Amateur league held a meeting last night and arranged for six games on next Sun day and transacted other business, the matter of the benefit game was discussed and a committee was ap pointed to try and secure the strong Naugatuck team to meet the pick of the league on some day in the future. The Consolidated, team, which was first selected have so many dates ahead that it does not seem possible to get that team to compete right away. As soon as the team has been selected tickets will be Issued and the managers and players of all the teams will make an effort to make the bene fit a rousing one. Hereafter collections , will be taken up every Sunday at all the games to help defray the expenses . of the league. , As no enclosed grounds can be secured it is expected the public will be willing to donate a little to ward the expenses of the league. The collectors will wear badges so that when . you contribute you will know that you, are giving to the right. par ties. . . . , .,. The .1 schedule , arranged for next Sunday is as follows: The Brooklyns vs the Pastimes at 2 o'clock and this will bring together two hard hitting teams and two teams which .re go ing to fight hard for the pennant. At 4 o'clock the St Joseph's and the North Ends will fight for supremacy. The St Joseph's claim to have the two best pitchers in the league inthe per sons of Tom Byrnes and Tom Moran and the North Ends say they will knock the tar out of those two best pitchers next . Sunday. At 3 o'clock the Merrimacs and the Washington Hills will face each other and here will be a game worth witnessing for both will struggle for the scalp of the other. PACER AND TROTTER. Dan Pajch and Lou Dillon May Meet at Memphis. Memphis, June 29.If the plans of the Memphis Trotting association do not miscarry, a special race between a harness king , and queen "will. 'be ar ranged which will be unique and en tirely new to customs hitherto known on the trotting turf. A heat race, best two in three, has been suggested be tween the champion pacer, ban Patch, 1:56, and Lou Dillon, 1:58, tETe queen of trotters. Secretary Murray Howe of the Mem phis -Trotting association is in cor respondence with C. K. G. Billings, owner of Lou Dillon, and M. W. Sav age, owner of Dan Patch, and if the event is arranged it will take place during the Grand Circuit meeting of the Memphis Trotting association. "Mr Billings may not be willing to arrange such a special," said Mr Howe, "for it is an accepted theory among harness horsemen, that a 2:10 pacer can beat a 2:10 trotter. However, should the Grand Circuit meeting be gone through with without developing any trotter that looks like it might have a chance with Lou Dillon in a match race, I believe that Mr Billings is sportsman enoxigh to arrange a meeting with Dan Patch for Lou, despite the disparity in their time performances." Mr Howe called attention to the fact 'that at present there is ho trotter that appears to stand a ghost of a show with Lou Dillon if called on to com pete in the dashes. The little queen of the trotting world has never started in but two heats In competition, but on those occasions she performed royally by pulling C. K. G. Billings to straight victories over Major Delmar, driven by E. E. Smathers, and approached the world's record for competitive miles, 2:034, created by Cresceu. It is Mr Howe's idea to have Dan Patch and Lou Dillon, meet at Memphis for a handsome gold cup and with their re spective owners driving them. WRESTLING. INTEREST IN LONDON Match Between JenHins and Big' Russian May Have the King for a Witness Will be a Great Match. Betting on the Hackenschmldt and Jenkins wrestling match at Albert hall on Saturday night is at even money. There is still much spirited discussion of the plan of allowing the match to be held in the hall mentioned which is an institution under royal charter, and has heretofore been given up only to high class entertainments. The fact that a committee of emi nent men has been appointed to see that the wrestling bout Is conducted in the proper manner and the king has Indicated that he may possibly , be present, has done much to reconcile public feeling to what was at first termed a desecration. It has already been announced that the Duke of Connaught is to attend, and in any case the event will prove one of the most interesting social functions of the season. It is obviously impossible that the king, "who has given, if not hi3 active at least his tacit consent to the ar rangements, would tolerate a perform ance in the slightest degree question able in v the building which was the conception of his father, an object of regard to his mother, and of which he himself is a patron. A number of stringent regulations, which amply provided for the genuine, ness and good conduct of the contest, were drawn up and Insisted upon be fore the Albert hall was ,let for, the event These precautions, , it is under stood, were desired by the king, and it is stated they have been submitted to and have met with the approval of his Majesty. They ' provide among other things, that the wrestlers shall be adequate ly clothed, and that no violence what ever shall be permitted, that any per son making a bet-shall be immedi ately ejected, that -the contest shall be a genuine contest, and that an ample force of police for the maint enance of order shall be provided by the promoters of the match.. The genuineness of the contest Is proved by the fact that 2,500 pounds has been deposited with the -City and Midland Bank, with the assurance that the sum will go the' winner of the contest Not a single one of the 1,300 seat holders of the Albert Hall has taken objection to he match; indeed, most of those who live in town have, sig- ninea tneir intention of being present, and they include many of London's best known men and women. JULY FOURTH SPORTS. South End Social Club Has Arranged a Big Program for Driving ParK If the weather proves favorable next Monday, the people of this city and the surrouuding towns 'will witness an array of sporting events at the Driving park which will more than satisfy them. The members of the South End Social club will outdo themselves on this occasion. They have allied them selves with the Waterbury Driving as sociation and the program as arranged last night is an elaborate one. The horse racing will, of course, be meat for those who love to see the speedy ones travel around the course. There are three classes In this feature of the sport. The 2:35 class now has ten entries and ten fast horses will show those present some corking good racing. . The running race will prove a novel as well as Interesting attraction for there are eight entries In this class, and the Brooklyn handicap won't be in it with this race. One race that will create ; more Interest than all others will be the local club race with eight horses, entered. Interest .in this race has become so intense that last night a big bet "was made between Gumpers, the owner of Highball, and Downey, the owner of American Girl, as to the respective merits of their two horses. This race will be for blood from start to finish. - Among the other sporting events will be the motor cycle race with eight or more, entries, an automobile race with from three to four machines flying around the track, the boys' , 100-yard dash, with a whole lot of entries for cash prizes, the one-mile bicycle handi cap, the fat men's race and a whore lot of other events. ' The races will start promptly at 2 o'clock and the following judges and timers "have been named: Dr Thomas Bland, D. J. Mahaney, T. P. Butler, Samuel Lowe and Thomas Pratte. JenaRtionnl Flniah nt Hawthorne. CHICAGO, June 29. The first race at Hawthorne, with fourteen starters, furnished a sensational finish, four horses coming to the wire so closely bunched that only the judges could separate them. Del Carina was given the verdict, with Allen Avon placed second and Green Gown, at 50 to 1, third, a head in front of Jade, the 3 to 2 favorite. La Londe, held at even money in the third race and the best backed favorite of the day, was beaten by a head in a hard drive by Barney Schreiber's black colt' Pinkerton. : Racing? at Sangni. . SAUGUS, Mass., June 29. With four good races on the card the New Eng land mile circuit of 1904 has been for mally inaugurated at Old Saugus track. Two features of particular in terest to horsemen were the winning of Lieonjero in the 2:22 trotting race and the fast time, so early in the sea son, of 2:11 made by Aintree in the 2:14 pacing event. Warte NIcht Won thct Feature. ST. LOUIS, June 30.-Crime, Abe lard and Warte Nicht were the win ning favorites at the fair grounds track. Warte Nicht won the fourth race,' the ' f eatura event, very easily from Dave Somers, third choice in the bettings THE PUGILISTS THE TWIN SUIXIVANS JacK LooHing for . Tommy Ryan MiKe After All in His Class Young Corbett Spoiling for a Battle. Jack (Twin) SuJlivan will have the chance of his life if the wily Tommy Ryan consents to meet him in a Chi cago ring.. Sullivan has all along maintained that if given the opportun ity he would make good against the" crack middleweight and now all that prevents a match is the fact that Ryan .wants ton much money. It is possible, however, that the farmer pugilist will consent to go the six rounds for the $1,600 that has been offered him for his end. Sullivan will probably box Tom Reilly in Salt Lake next month. An old favorite arrived home from the west on Friday. In the person of Mike (Twin) Sullivan of Cambridge, and the smaller of the famous Cam bridge twiins is looking ruddy and healthy after his sojourn' at .the St Louis fair. Mike's one ambition now is to get on a m'atch with Champion Joe Gans, and after he has visited his folks he will isue a challenge to the coiorea man to box for he title. Since he went west Mike has added materially to has reputation, his most recent battles being with Sammy Phlpps, whom he stopped in four rounds In St Louis, whipped Dick Fitzpatrtck, who gave Billy Mellody a hard battle, getting, a draw with the Charlestown lad, and winning from Billy Moore and Gus Gardner. Sulli van tried hard to get a match with the winner of the Jack O'Keefe-Billy Mel lody bout, but "they sidestepped the clever Cambridge. lightweight. WALCOTT TO MEET TEMPLE. Joe Walcott yesterday signed 'articles to meet Larry Temple, another negro, in a fifteen round bout at Baltimore next Friday night. They 'are to box before the Eureka A. C. This will be the third bout between the pair. The last time they met, Walcott was the victor on points. ' If Walcott whips Temple he will try to face Young Peter Jackson again.. ( M'COY LOOKING FOR FIGHT. George Grant got a letter from Kid McCoy yesterday, and after reading it 'announced that ihe and the Kid would be present in Philadelphia next mdnth to see the fight between Fitzsimmons and Jack O'Brien. McCoy wrote that he would challenge the winner. CORBETT WANTS A FIGHT. Hustling around town for a match is. a rare spectacle in modern pugilism. Sam Harri?, McGovern's manager, was expected at the Hotel Metropole last night to tafk over the proposed contest, but did not appear. ; 1 Corbett waited around until late and then retired still unmatched. . Outside of the bigi fouar Britt, Cor bett, Hanlon and McGovern however, there are ' several husky young men about town wito are anxious to fight the little champion. One of them is Danny Duane. Duane is matched to fight Spike Robinson, and later to contest a twenty round fight with Kid Broad. Duane says he can make 130 pounds or 218 pounds If Corbett can. He is anxious to go any distance, anywhere, If Corbett will only give him a, chance. This boy has beaten Dal Hawkins and Dave Holly, and has waged creditable .contests with WTIIlie Fitzgerald, Spike Sullivan, Sam Langford and Blackburn. But Corbett says he will have none of him because they are not in the same boxlngi set, and couldn't draw mone' worth conditioning and fight ing for. ."' : So that seems to dispose of Duane. As Hanlon is matched with Nelson", and Britt won't fight until December, it looks as though Corbett must turn westward for a go, unless Terry makes good on his repeated demands for an other match. A "However and notwithstanding," re marked Mr Corbett last night, "I shall be up bright and early these sum mer mornings hunting 'around for a fight until I get one." Proper Won the Bay Rldgre. . NEW YORK, June 29. Proper, even money favorite, won the Bay Ridgb handicap at.Sheepshead Bay. He ran the one and a quarter miles in the fast time , of 2:06 1-5. Ormonde's Right made the pace to the last sixteenth, where Proper closed with a great burst of flpeed and won driving by a head from Carbuncle, who in turn was a head in front of Ormonde's Right. Waterboy, the holder of the world's record of 2:03 1-5 for one and one quarter miles, made his first appear ance, but secorSi to Broomstick was the best he could do. The mile was run in 1:38 3-5. No Use For Race Track Men. NEW YORK, June 29. The Equita ble Life Assurance society, within whose building at 120 Broadway an army of men is employed, has sent to its employees the following circular letter: "For reasons that sm proper to the ofliclals of the society "jpu are hereby notified that your presence on a race track, in a poolroom or In future to be seen in company with persons whose business it is to place bets on horse races will be counted sufficient excuse on which to request your resig nation from the affairs of the society." Zeal of Russian Censors. The Russian government expends more money on its press censor than on its schools. During 1903 the "zeal" of ' the censors .extended to the sus pension - of 83 papers for various periods, while 26 were forbidden to accept any advertisements, and no fewer than 259 editors were informed that they would perforce be compelled to take a short holiday in Siberia if they continued their methods pf cham pioning certain public questions.

TOWLE C SYRACUSE BOYS WIN Great Intercollegiate Regatta at Poughkeepsie. CORNELL WOS FOUR OARS WITH EASE In tbe Kigrht pared Race, Four Miles, th Great Event of the Meeting?, Syracuse Won Cornell Second, Pennsylvania Third. POUGHKEEPSIE, N. Y., June 29. The perennial Cornell spell is broken, and the comparatively small number of Syracuse men in town are in a state of hilarious delight, in which surprise at their own achievement is quite as active a factor as the delight, for in two out of the three races on the Poughkeepsie course, the only races in which she was entered, the crews of Syracuse university won victory from the sons of Cornell in a fashion which will - return all hands here another year seeking further honors. In the four mile eight oar varsity race and in the freshman two mile eight1 oar race the Syracuse, oarsmen won by handsome margins, coming out of obscurity in the minds of the boat ing sharps so marked that the friends of Syracuse could hot find takers for bets at 1 tq 12. Cornell won the four oar varsity race with ease. Syracuse, but a. few hours ago the despised infant of the intercollegiate Towing world, is the giant of the Hud son, around ,wljose knees cluster the dwarfed brawn and science of the great; universities of Cornell, Pennsyl vania, Wisconsin, Columbia and -their lesser companion, Georgetown. Sixteen pupils of James A. Ten Byck in a few short but stirring minutes of trial at the sweeps struck such a blow to American rowing prestige and tra ditions as has no precedent in the his tory of the sport in the United States. It was struck suddenly and with such skill and precision that the gray haired veteran and the youngest oarsman are alike stunned. Cornell, her nearest competitor In both events and for years peerless on the Hudson, finished second, beaten off, all her confidence flown to the four winds and all her boasted strength and skill as a tale that is told. Charles Courtney, so long the wizard of Ameri can rowing,- is a beaten and bitterly disappointed man. Wisconsin, which was thought , to threaten all competitors in the four oair and varsity races, was never a factor, coming in fourth .out of five in the f our oar race and last in the varsity. , Columbia, the 'dark horse," whose mysterious doings upstream have led tQ a good deal of solicitude on the part of all of her competitors, did well in the four oared race, in which she came in second, though she made but a fee ble showing in the others, coming-in last in the freshman race and fourth in the varsity. No records were broken. Indeed the time was slower than for three years in two of the races and more than a minute and - a half slower than last year in the varsity race. What might hare been done in the varsity race had Cornell pushed Syracuse" may be in ferred from the statement of the Syra cuse cockswain, in which he is quoted as saying that his men were prepared for a surprise from Cornell in the last part of the race and were ready for It with reserve power to hit up their speed materially, but they were not pressed in any part of the race. The results of the races were as fol lows: Varsity four oared race, two miles, won by Cornell. Time, 10 minutes 53 3-5 seconds; Columbia, 11 minutes 12 1-5 seconds; Pennsylvania, 11 min utes 15 3-5 seconds; Wisconsin, 11 min utes 18 2-5 seconds; Georgetown, 11 minutes 34 2-5 seconds. - : - .
