THE SPORTING THE HORSES WRESTLING WORLD RECORD AT LEXINGTON Leading lady Lowers the Tina of tbe But Mile by a Three Year Filly to 2 07. ' Lexington, Ky, Oct 16. A most Important world's record was low ered yesterday forenoon during the time record performances. Leading Lady, a 3 year old bay Ally by the New York city-owned stallion Blngett, dam Miss Pratt, by Helr-at-Law, trotted a mile In a start against time In 2:07 and lowered the world's best mile by a 3 year old filly from 3:08. The former champion was Fantasy, who had held this record since 1893. , , , . 4. The new record is only a quarter of a second slower than the fastest mile ever trotted by a colt, gelding or filly, namely, that of General Watts, 2:06.., Early during the season Leading Lady showed up finely In her races. She won the American Horse - Breeders' futnrlty at Readville and later gained a mark of 2:1114. It was -In the effort W better her record yesterday that she trotted her wonderful mile and set the record of her ago. and sex at a point where It will be a long time before It will be equaled or reduced. The new world's champion Is owned by A. B. Coxe of Paoli, Pa, and wa,s driven" yesterday by Bob Proctor, who trained her at Readville. The talent again went astray yes terday, as two of its choices went wrong in a manner to give it abso lutely no chance of shifting. In the 3 year old Kentucky stake the Ari zona colt Justo was put up as the good thing, selling at $50, the field hardly $25; but Justo was not in racing form and got badly beaten- by Binvolo, from the Allen farm at Pltts- fleld, Mass. - , v Weather and track conditions were the best of the entire meeting, and It was plain that with a proper pace maker Binvolo was ready for much faster time than he showed. 1 Although the Pittsburg mare Lady Jones, driven by Tommy Murphy, won the 2:12 trot after losing a heat, yet it did 'no good to the talent; as she was virtually barred from the pools. r" ' : . " , ..The Philadelphia mare Zaza was selected, .by the wiseacres as a , color bearer, for reasons which Is often hard to. account for, as this mare, driven by an old man, is as likely to fast as" she Is' to Jump like a Jack rabbit; : : . ., , , The more '' conservative ' element pinned' their faith to Geers's Czarina Dawson, while the best play was made by fielders. ' Geers-won the opening heat rather closely pressed, but Lady- Jones walked over in the three succeeding heats after losing the first by a break and finishing last. There, was asgood contest in every ieat. jot , this racei but the barred favorite came from 'the out side, in every heat and won after 'stepping long miles.' . . The pacing stallion Minor- Heir failed to lower the world's unpaced pacing record of 1 : 59 . ' He steppe the mile In 2:00 after .going the first half In-: 59. 'He rated his quarters as follows: :30H. :29 ft, ;30& and :30.

There was a hitch over the sale of the New Haven nine yesterday afternoon by George M. Cameron of this city to James H. .Wilkes. Deeds were yesterday drawn up transferring the team to Mr Wilkes, who is ie of the owners of the Grand Opera house of this city and a former Brooklyn player. They were not passed because of a techni cality In tbe rather complicated own ership "of the team and it. was said last night that they might not be handed over at all.- . ? . Mr Cameron Insists on owning the nine alone If he continues in the field and Is willing to shoulder the entire responsibility but there has been a hitch between him and. his partners, George Bone and. 8amue J. Wtedenhamer of Newark, who poa small interest is. the tem. ALL WANT TO GET A MATCH Many Grspplers Who Would Like ; to Tackle AlfiSwanion Other Newr. i .' There are several wrestlers who Are anxious -to-break: into this city during the winter 'months and all are after.theiscalp of.Ale Swanspn. One Of them appeared In person and said he wa,M6ntagna"of ,the Broadway gymhaslumv New..Ydrk:i. He was a likely JookiogjCbap at that and look ed the'part of a, wrestler.; Kunkle of Canada Is another who wants a cracK at .some of-tbe boys , at-145 to 150 pounds. . .He-and SWanson ought to make a .good, .match at that, ' Then comes a . letter .from Joe Murphy of Lynn, who claims to be Ihe, manage oftVoihg Prokos, who will tackle the best of them at 148 pounds. Swanson may take on one or all of them, before many moons. , tfohn PerelH, the Italian wrestler, defeated Fritz Mohl In twenty-three minutes In their match at the Colum bia theater, Boston. It was the fast est bout of the season and Mohl was not put down for a fall. PerelH se cured a toe hold on the German and he was obliged to give up. There are so many Fritz Mohls, Charley Olsons and Hlalmar Lundlns wrestling that It Is" difficult to keep track of them. The' Fritz Mohl who lost the match In Boston Is the man who lost to Hjalmar Lundln last winter. Lundln said when he was here that his name was frequently used In the west by wrestlers and he said it was rather odd some mornings to read In the pa per how he had lost a match in Kala mazoo when he had really won 'one In Boise City. In Sweden, about every other" wrestler or weight lifter Is named ; Anderson or Johnson and In this country nearly every baseball team has a Wagner, - Charles Olson of Indianapolis has returned to that city from Chicago, where, he met War Eagle, the big In aian wrestler, in a nnisn oout. ui son was booked to meet Demetral, the" husky Greek grappler in Indian apolis last night. ' In a recent match Demetral gave Olson the hardest tus sle of his career. Demetral charged unfair treatment after he was beaten and said that Olson would not dare to give him a return match. The Swede took up the challenge and a side bet of $500 was posted by the men. . - . George Kennedy, the manager of Eugene Tremblay, said when he was In Hartford , that- Carl Pons, who wrestled' two Grae'co-Rom'aa .matches with Hjalmar Lundln, did not make gdod in Montreal and the sports up there failed to see anything In him The Hartford experts were Well pleas ed with tne showing made by Pons He was In Louisiana when last heard from but whether he was wrestling or at work upon a perique plantation was not known1.. The match that Pons had with Demetral In Chicago was as bloody an affair as was ever seen on a mat. . .The biggest hit at the . Bothner- Trerablay match In Hartford was made,;by the referee, Kid Burke of fcprlngfield. By the way , in which Burke. examined tbe contestants one would think that about .$14,000 and a diamond belt was at stake. Burke had probably read about the charge made by Hackenschmldt that Gotch had oiled his body before he went on the mat In the championship struggle at Chicago and Burke was manifestly trying to discover oil upon Bothner and the Canadian. Fortunately, he did not discover any trace of oil and the men were permitted to sro orf This was the biggest grandstand play ever seen at a match here. - POOL TOVRXAMEXT Waterbury Man Defeated Naugatnck Man Last Night.

One of the greatest football teams that ever"1 represented this city -will be In the line-up out at Reidvllle next Sunday when they face tbe strong Tbomaston team. Manager Tommy Lawior has been laying awake nights since that game of last Sunday solv ing the problem of how he can Im prove his team. He has succeeded In doing so as will be seen from the line-up given below. New material has been added which will greatly strengthen tbe team. In the first place Nolan, the . big fullback, who played such a star game for the Wln-sted-Torrlngton combination last Sunday, has Joined the All Water burys.

WITH THE POLOISTS; Fred Jean Wants to Captain Hartford Team. Hartford. Oct. 16. What do you think of Fred Jean for captain and center of the Hartford roller polo team That's the latest and it didn't come , out until . yesterday.. Jean came to Hartford yesterday all the way from New Britain, and went Tight to Harry Starkie's office, where he told him he would like to buy the Hartford franchise. Jfour story-interests me ' strangely, said Starkle, give more particulars. Captain Jean then said that under no circumstances would he ever play rolle? polo in New Britain for Man ager Billy Hanna. He said that the manager had frisked him out of $300 and he couldn't get It." Hanna offered Jean $300 if he would win the pennant for New Britain. After he won the pennant, Jean held hlu hands out for the money and Hanna told him that he had not lived up to his contract. According to Man ager Hanna, Jean did not report to him at the time he agreed to and he did not get the players as he said he would. Mr Hanna said he went out and secured the players himself and therefore he did not see where Jean had any $300 coming to him. A suit was threatened and the matter was carried before the directors of the league but nothing was done and Jean did not get the money. Manager Starkle went out to New Britain yesterday to see Manager Hanna but was not allowed to see him. Mr Hanna is in the New Bri tain hospital with typhoid" fever and no visitors are allowed. - Manager Starkle said last night that he would give an answer, to Jean In a few days. Jean was willing to buy the franchise and team outright or he would take a half interest. Mr Starkle said he was undecided about the matter but he looked favorably upon the proposition and he said he might sell a half Interest to Jean. He said he had his team engaged with the exception of a center man and Jean would fill In pretty good at that position. If a deal is made, Jean will play - center, captain the team and have full charge of the team. Mr Starkle will lock after the business end of the enterprise. If Jean comes here to captain the team' he will favor having the game, played at the - Auditorium- rather than at Luna park. Manager Starkle had practically decided to have the games at Luna park but if he takes In a partner, he may change his plans and play In the Auditorium. This would be a safer proposition as If there was a blizzard some night and the cars were stalled out at Charter Oak park, the accommoda tions for spending the night In the rink would not commend themselves. While the negotiations are under way there is but one thing-that is sure and that is if Jean comes here he will bury that New Britain bunch when they come together. Jean said he had made Hanna an offer top lay for $15 a week less salary than, last year providing Han na would pay him what he claims Is his due from last season. Mr Han na wrote him making an offer to hire him at a cut of $40 in salary. Jean said he sent back a curt reply turning the offer down flat. , He would not play for Hanna. He in tends going out to the Ohio state league if the Hartford deal doesn't go through. - Soxy Lyons, last year's halfback is anxious to play with the New Bri tain team again this season. - A New Haven paper says that the New Haven base ball club and fran chise will be sold to Jar; es H.

Advanced proofs on. the "Life ('f Battling Nelson," a book which will chronicle the blography.of the light weight champion, have been recelyed hy the "Battler," who. is at Detroit with the fight pictures. In the stat istical end it shows that Nelson en gaged In 81 fights,' of '666 rounds. Forty-six of these battles were vic tories, 12 of .them defeats and 23 of them draws. He knocked out op ponents 28 times. "To be truthful about this matter," said Nelson, "these fights Tiave netted me over $100,000, and I have taken down 'over a third more in theatri cals. All this Is soundly invested, and when I retire, I will be indepen dently rich." r.i In Nelson's book the champion will tell of . his first, fight in Hegewlsch, 111., on September .3, 1896. For this he received $1' When he went to look for his coat' he found that It was missing, and at the same time a' pay envelope containing a week's salary, $5.60. and a Waterbury watch, were gone. "That $5.50 looked mighty big. to me then." says Nelson. "But now It is different. I was paid $1,200 at the Trocadero in Chicago las week showing with' the pictures, and I'll get $1,100 here for the same stunt." WOULD WEAR WHISKERS. . Pittsburg, -Pa.' Oct 16. Another monumental blunder has been added to Rube Waddell's long list of mis deeds in western Pennsylvania. Mill vale has lost , the. four borough pen nant and Rube is blamed for it. He promised to pitch for $100. When the Etna team learned; that Millville was to spring'soihe fingers a list of play ers" was demanded. This bad bit of news was transmitted to Rube, who said It didn't matter, that he could disguise himself so that none in the valley would know him. So under an Innocent looking name the great pitcher was entered for the finals in'the valley championship. He reached this neck of . woods Wednes day but could not agree with the Millville management, as to the sort of disguise he should don. He want ed to drive into the field on a hay wagon and go in with chlri whiskers and overalls but Millville wouldn't stand for this. Rube refused to don tights and short skirts and go In as a ballet dancer, and the whole pow wow ended In a fuss, and "Lefty" George went into .the game instead of the mighty Rube and lost. BASE BALL NOTES. The Chicago Nationals have draft ed Tommy Downey, the former sec ond baseman for Bridgeport., Dow ney has played the past season with Birmingham in the Southern league. One hundred admirers of Harry CovaleskI, the Philadelphia Nation als pitcher, who recently defeated New York three times, tendered him a banquet at his home in Shamokin, Pa, the other night and presented him with a gold watch and chain. ! Harry Wolverton will probably manage the Newark Tigers next sea eon. WOlverton; formerly played with the Philadelphia and Boston National league teams. , When with Boston he Jumped to the Tri-State league, and after the. settlement of the outlaw war Wllltamsport gained a title to "Wolverton by paying $500 to Boston. ,' One of the biggest deals In the his tory of base ball is said to be under way. Hughey Jennings of the De troit Tigers wants Hal Chase, the Highlander first baseman who quit the club this -summer. He would also like Conroy and Morlarlty. In exchange for Chase he is willing to give the Highlanders George Mullin, Rossman, Downs,-KHIifer and a cash bonus for Conroy and Morlarlty. ;They u sajr-that when Jennings supplanted Summer' with Winter he made a seasonable change, but after all Chicago did the Tigers up Brown. The Cubs Kling.to first place be cause while they took every Chance they did not Tinker with their team. And they do say that Steinfeldt like Killian Mullin when he won that game Overall they could do to stop him, but the whole team knew How ard the Job was and have kept them apart Evers since. " , Hal Chase, the premier first base man of the New York Highlanders, who Jumped to the Stockton team In the California state league, Is re ceiving $1,000 to play out the re mainder, of the season with Manager Cy Moreing. This sum with trans portation both Tor" 'himself and wife from New Yort to California, was of fered by Moreing. ." Chase was hired to playtwenty-three games, te num ber on schedule; and at the above rate Is getting about $4 5 a game. ' It has become known that. Billy Murray, manager of the Philadelphia Nationals, refused $10,000 a year to supervise the destinies of the Cleve land Americans. Murray," the story relates, was offered the princely sal ary under a five year, contract. . He rejected it because he had already signed a Quaker contract for ' next season. This means that the "bell" has or Is about to ring on "Nap" La Jole's managerial career and he will probably not ' lead' Cleveland when the 1909 pennant chase begins. The New Yorks; although ther lost the National league pennant, won fn the ' receipts league. New York's profits for the year Are in the neigh borhood - of $200,000 the largest clean-up ever made by a club In the big leagues.
