their string of defeats at the expense
of Holyoke yesterday afternoon, win
ning out 7 to . Big Cy Voorhees
served up an assortment of benders
that were literally eaten by Norwich.
Twelve safe swats, many coming with
men on bases, tells the story. Ira

the holyoke I batsmen considerably.

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

making several sensational stops and

Meriden, June 29. 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. McCullough had the locals at
his mercy except in the fourth inning
when four hits netted them three runs.

New London, June 29. In a con
test for supremacy between pitchers
yesterday Warren , McLaughlin, the
valiant Scot, carried off the laurels,
allowing the Ponies but a tiny scratch
single. Up to the eighth Inning Smil
ing Bill Luby held the Whalers to
three safeties, and the only tally up
to that time was .on a wild throw

New Haven, June 29. 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: ' "

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. , - ' '
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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..
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.
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.

Great Intercollegiate Regatta

In tbe Kigrht pared Race, Four Miles,
th Great Event of the Meeting?,
Syracuse Won Cornell Second,
Pennsylvania Third.
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.

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
