All loveri of amateur sport will sincere ! ;
regret that our English cousins have throw :
A few buckets of cold water on the schcm
to bring about a meeting In track and fleli
athletics between the winners of the annua
games of the Intercollegiate ( Athletic as
Roclatlon of American and the victors In th
annual games be'tween Oxford and Cambrldg
universities. The recent publication of th
loiter that was sent to the Britons by th
executive committee of the American as
Delation last Decembar suggesting such i
meeting has had the effect of confirming th
prevailing opinion that the English collegian
were somewhat hasty In declining to hav
anything to do with the proposed meeting 01
the ground that the amateur standing of ou
American collegians wan questionable.
The letter from this side was written b
Oliver Shlras of Cornell , president , and II
W. Howe of Harvard , and S. K. Gerard o
Yale , on behalf of the Intercollegiate Athletl
Association of America. It assured th
Oxford-Cambridge athlellc authorities tha
none but bcna ( Hide students and strlc
amateurs would bo eligible to the America ]
games and that any suggestions , amend
ments or alterations desired by the Oxford
Cambridge men would bo gladly considered
and , If deemed proper , Incorporated. Thl
certainly gave the English collegians s.uf
flclent assurance that the Americans wer
not seeking the better of the argument , an
should have been accepted by any fair
minded set of men as an Indication tha
nothing savd pure , amateur sport was desire
by the collegians on this side of the Atlanti
ocean. It was not sufficient for the Briton :
however , and they have peremptorily dc
cllned to have anything to do with the meel

standing of our colles'tim ' may be qucvs
It Is the privilege of the Ilrltona to dcclln
to enter the contest , and no one can galnsa
that they have merely exercloed their naturt
pcrosatlve. All of us , on the other hand , ar
entitled to draw our own conclusions as t
why the Englishmen do not care to compel

athletes. The cry of questionable amateu
standing raised by the Brltcns will go In on
ear and out the other with meat of us , fc

amateur code there may be In our collegia !

and a strict amateur has an exceeding liar
task to perform In entering the Intercol
leglato games. It's doubtful If such a on
could break In with a batlorlng ram undc
the present wise administration of the Intel
collegiate association. The Britons shoul
have given a better excuse for their docllnn
tlon than to cry "not fair. "

The annual games given under the au > iplcci
of the llojto.i College Athletic association
en Monday evening were a great success.
Representatives were present from eleven
colleges , seventeen preparatory schools and
eighteen athletic associations. The forty
yards Invitation wna n.i hotly contested aa
any event of the evening. The two heats of
the final were run In world's record time ,
four anl three flfths seconds. The Harvard-
Pennsylvania two-mllo rrlay was the event
of the evening , and the crimson banner was
trailed In the dust. Dick Grant , for Har
vard , and Wilson , for Penn , atarteJ the
race. Grant allowed Wilson to lead by a
yard till the last half of the final lop , when
lie sprinted for all he was worth , and left
Wilson four yard * behind him , but Alex
ander , who took the Harvard utring , was too
easy for Mechllng , who regajled the lead
Wilson had lost ; and- taking his time , fin
ished seven yards ahead. Fullerton went
Into the g-lme to cut down this lead , a&l
Lane was Just as determined to keep up , b :
they broke oven , with Perosy still seven
yards ahead. Blakemoro and A. Grant
then got down to the final struggle. For
two laps Blakcmcro managed to keep Alex
Grant from gaining much. Then Alexahowed
that he had It In him nad had everything hla

Burning memories of the less of the 18D7
foot ball game to Yale , when everyone was
looking for a mighty triumph for Princeton ,
has well nigh driven Garry Cochran , the
captain of the Jersey team , mad. So dlu-
heartened has ho been slacc the unfortunate
affair at Now Haven that he has left Prince-
ten , and Is now head coach at the California
State university at Berkley. Cal. He will be
there for two jeai , rud will have full away
over the foot ball and the base ball teams.

Another body blow has -been dealt thi
Amateur Athletic union. The stand takei
by the Intercollegiate Association of Amerl
lea against the Amateur Athletic union li
the registration matter has caused mucl
comment. The captains of the athlctl
teams of all the big colleges freely gavi
their views on the matter and not one volci
was raised In support of the Amateur Ath
lotlc union's high-handed policy. State
ments from the captains of the Yale , Harvard
vard , Pennsylvania , Princeton , Cornell am
Qoluiribla have b'cen published during th
last week , and agree that the athletes o
those six universities at least do not re
quire a certificate- purity from an outsld <

complaints of all the captains are similar
The ono from F. II. Blgclow , Harvard' ;

to stunt the growth of athletics. The school
boya have but'few tournaments of their owl
and they arc-not. going , to pay these' dollar ;
for the privilege of the auspices of the Anna

and have them compete for practice at thi

The disposition that was made of th
rowdy ball playing problem at the St. Lou !
meeting commends lUelf to every senslbl
admirer of the game. The now regulation
are fully adequate to effectually do awa
with rowdyism on the field If they are pror

of Judges Indlcatcj that they will be. Th

from one of the players will do more to drlv

that are played respectably.
While Omaha failed to get homo game ,
a the Fourth of July and Decoration day
a close examination of the ( schedule Indicate :
that the clu1 > fared fairly well when the entire I
iicaBm U considered. We got two games al
homo ou Labor day with Kama * City and the
long standing rivalry between the two cities
Insures a good crowd at each game. The
team alee geta a fair proportion of the Sat
urday and Sunday games at home , playing
eleven Saturdays acid ten Sundays on th
homo grounds. The club opens the season
at home with four .games with St. Paul ,
Then Minneapolis comes for four games and
Omaha goes to Minneapolis for a return to-
rlcn. This Is followed by four games with
Kansas City at Omaha and this U the cnl >
series that will bo played In Omaha during
May. During the month the team travcla

Then the fans will get nearly a month

It will play four games each at homo with

well of the crowd of ball players Manage ]
O'Brien will bring to Omaha , tnd declare-
that the Omaha people will have a chanct
to see as fast ball as there Is In the country
this year. Ho ! a especially plesoed to act
Omaha get McCauley and Tucker and he saj (
that there Is no reason why the team should
not be right In the race. It Is a hard hitting
aggregation and , under Tucker's cxperlcncet
leadership ho expects to see several of tlu
players do much better work then they dlt
lost year. He received a letter the other daj
from Eustace , who Is down at Hot Sprltv ; !
getting Into shape. Eustace writes that IK
Is In perfect condition , and If he succeed ;
l < n staying so ho ought to fill the bill wltl
some to spare. He Is a hard hitter and I :
capable of playing great ball when he Is Ji :
condition. Hascall Is Inclined to consldci
McK'imty , the third baseman who wnti In
herited from Grand Uaplds with the fran-
chlse , as a coiner. He says he can hit ant
field both and In an ambitious young follow
who will get better nil tho' time with tlu
right sort of handling.
It would bo a serious misfortune If 11
should turn out that Omaha should bo un
able to retain Tucker. It Is pretty certalr
In the- light ot President Soden's assertiot
that Boston hao never waived Ita claim t <
the ex-senator that the National league car
retain him If It wsnts to. And" the dsmaru
for his services seems to bo pretty brisk
ccrwlderlng the fact that none of the blf
clubs wanted him when ho was on the mar
ket. They seem to have suddenly dlacoverci
that Tommy Is a very desirable article am
both St. Louis and Chicago are making t
desperate effort to Irnd him.
The anxiety of Manager Burns to securi
Tucker Is explained by the fact that tin
Chicago team Is In a very bad way for a sat
Isfactory Held captain. Either Decker 01
Everltt Is considered capable of playing finv
base , but neither of them have the capacltj

at the best to organize a now team that wit

Consequently the Western League will havi

an excellent command of the ball togothc
with a plentiful supply of cerebral matter
Ho uses his head all the time and last yea
ho won games In which he had almost n

the season the Grand Ilnpk's club was largel ;
filled up with amateurs to play the scaaoi
out and the situation was enough to dlscour
age any pitcher. But Hagermin kept plug
ging them over , and In spite of the lack o
support ho succeeded In winning a number c
games In which the team had no apparen
chance on earth. With a first-class lean

There have been rumors of late that Ger
many U proposing to enact legislation to ex
elude American horses from that country
F. J. Berry of the Union Stock yards a
Chicago has written as follows regardln ,
the matter :
I would like to say to the people that the
need not have the least fears of uny prc
hlbltory movement by Germany against Im
portatlon of our American horses fcr the fol
lowing reasons : First , they nre short o
horses , and can buy American horses ver
much cheaper than they can raise them , n
their land Is BO scarce nnd dear. It la tru
they hate to seeU.OOO.OOO to 13,000,000 of thcl
money ) leaving their country for America
homes , and are willing to give a pretense t
exclude them on Influenza , and If this move
inent should prove prohibitory the Importa
tlon of American honea to Germany woul
not make the least difference to us , as th
export demnmti IB po strong and there nr
no many ( crei n countries buying ou
liorsea In large * ' tittmhera thnt the. Ocrma :
market will make no difference to use what
over. Wo nlrfitfy have a very rtrong ex
lort ' demand tfrotn England , Ireland , Scot
.and Belgium ) ( France. Norway , Dcnmnrli
Sweden , nnd fame of our homes go 'to Italy
Africa , Mnxlco'nnd South America , nnd w
could sell for the export demand three time
the amount of yTmerlcnn horses that we d
fell If we hnfl'lhem good enough for th
export demniul-ifrho exporters take only th
good kinds , 'and thesa clashes of horses hav
already beww to. get very scarce and ar
getting lilghar..anil-there Is m > reason wh ;
they will nor.KcT scarcer and higher ever ;
year for matii'years to come , as It tafce
live years to ] lire-ed nnd raise horses fo
service , and"1 uriless our people go Immcdl
ntely to ralslTiffihnd breeding horses ther
must bo a grrat shortage In this country li
n few yearn ttt the most. We have plent ;
of the small , lojwer grades , which nre ver ;
unsalable , and they will remain cheaj
In addition to- the export demand , m Imv
a very strong American demand , nnd nl
American markets want good horses , ani
thl. , with our export demand , will mnke- i
very heavy call upon our American stippl ;
of good horses , which 4s reduced abou
3,003,000 since lt > 94 and a much larger pe
cent In quality 'than they ore In number ?
Fifty thousand American horse * -were ex
ported In 1S97. and thcro will bo a mucl
larger number this year.
.The charge that American horses are at
fllctcd with contagious Influenza , Mr. Berr ;
continues , Is entirely fictitious. The change
of air and climate brings on a cold , whlcl
can bo cured easily. Ho follows :
American horses , were never more health :
than they are at present. Thre can bo m
objection- our horses on account of sick
ness and disease. It In a trumped U ]
charge , cither by Ignorance or malicious
nuss ; but as far as trade Is concerned I
does not mnke any difference , for we havi
a very strong American and forelpn < le
mand , which gives us the strongest klnt
of a demand , and It Is believed by our bea
Judges thnt there Is going to bo a scarclt :
and a. great shortage of good horses upoi
us In a few years at the most.

There Is no question that It takes a pui
like Fltz or Corbctt to put a little zest Inl
matchmaking. The following telegram I
said to have been sent by the champ to ex
press his willingness to meet McCoy : "
will fight McCoy any tlmo ho puts up cnougl
money to make U worth my while. McCo
and Huhlin have no more right to fight fo
the championship than a yellow dog. r wll
fight McCoy any second ho puts up the stufl
McCoy Is a miserable upstart. Ho has beei
a little successful and It has made him daffy
The 'Kid' has the swellhcad and he think
ho Is In the heavyweight class. I will shov
him how to. fight If ho has the money to bacl
up his bluff. "
This sudden willingness on the part o
Fitzslmmons Is auspicious. Is It an adver
tislng dodge or has the scheme arranged b
McCoy and Gus Uuhlln to fight for th
championship of the world brought the red
topped holder of the title to time ? Thcro'1

Through the death of Con Doyle In Chicago
cage recently a gap was left In the rank
of western pugilists which It will be hard t
fill. Doyle was not heard of .much lu lat
years , but from seven to ten years back h
was ono of the top notchers in his class. H
was essentially a fighter In the old-tlm
eenso of the word , for ho could glvo and re
cetvo punishment In an equal degree-
quality sadly lacking In the pugllUta of U

The duck season la now right at hand
and If the weather Is favorable the guot
will bo cracking all along the Platte and on
all the shooting grounds In this vicinity.
The birds have been getting more plentiful
during the week and according to all re
ports there Is already a prospect of excel
lent sport unless the thermometer should go
Into an unexpected decline. During the
last day or two the local hunters have- been
having their guns cleaned up end theli
shells , loaded , ready for the beginning ol
the campaign and qulto a number of them
l.avo plannol to go out to Valley. Watcrloc
or Honey Creek today. It Is a trifle toe
early yet for more extended expeditions , but
If the weather continues open the shooting
will bo on In earnest In another week.
Aside from the excellent prospects for
ducks there has been nothing to Interest
the shooters except the regular practice ol
the Omaha Gun club at the Council Bluffs
giojnds yesterday afternoon. The annual
tournament of the Nebraska State Sports
men's asroclatlon la still a good ways In

The new Challenge Trophy that has Jusl
been put up for competition among the
Chicago trapshooters Is said to he one of the
most elaborate and artistic medals that has
yet been designed for such a purpose. Ao
describe. ! by the American Field it Is con
structed In the usual form of a medal , with
a bar to which Is attached a pin for fasten
ing It to the vest or lapel of the coat , and
from this bar Is suspended the medal proper ,
which Is about the size of a twenty dollar
gold piece , but which Is a gem of rare
beauty and unique design. Above the bat
or pin on the front of which on an enameled
back ground are the words "Chicago Chal
lenge , " are two guns crossed and a pigeon
trap. On the face of the medal Is a fac
slmilo of the seal of the city of Chicago ,
a shield In the center , on the face of wlitch
Is the American flag , and to the right a
ship entering the mouth of the harbor , while
on the left Is the figure of an Indian brave
with bo > v and arrow. Above the shield , In
a sea shell , Is the flguro of a nude child ,
while In the scroll below the shield are the
words "Urbs In Horto , " the Latin from
which Is obtained the motto The Garden
City. The front of the medal upon which
the shield , the vessel , the Indian on the
dock and Lake Michigan are outlined. Is
sunken and the rim around this Is studded
with sixteen diamonds , while surrounding
the whole In the shape of a wreath , arc
Imitations of pigeons in 'Etruscan ' gold , each
bird taking a different flight , and a group
representing nearly every flight a pigeon
takes on leaving a trap.

According to exchanges the Invitation game
seems to be growing In popular regard In
certain parts of the country , and while It Is
by no means In general use It seems desira
ble that It should be understood by whist
players. One advocate , In speaking of Its
superiority over the Walbrook and other
systems , says : "While the Invitation game Is
a trump showing plan In part , It. differs from
other systems .of the sort In ono Important
respect , Under the Walbrook method the
Information given Is whether the leader's
hand contains a long or a short trump suit ,
while the theory of the invitation game Is to
show a strong or n weak hand rather than
merely to say , 'I have four or more trumps,1
or , 'I have three or less trumps. ' "
With four weak trumps the Invitation
player will not show strength while with
three good ones and a side hand of merit ho
may. He claims that the positive Informa
tion he gives Is more Important for his part
ner , while when he does not show strength
It docs not , as In the case of the Walbrook
system , mean necessarily a trump holding
which three rounds will exhaust. The Invi
tation player also differs from Walbrook In
the low card leads when It Is desired to show
strength. Ho makes the lead of the lowest
card of the suit show strength , while with
Walbrook the lowest marks short trumps ,
the next to the lowest , long.
On the subject of htci , card leads a whlat
expert divides invitation players Into four
classes. "Tho first class , " ho says , "be
lieves In making tllo king and jack cards
of Invitation. By that I mean these cards
say -to the partners , 'I have strength In 'the '
suit led , good trumps and probably a re
entry ; I Invite you to lead trumps , ' whllo the
ace and queen negative the Invitation. The
second class uses the king only as a card of
Invitation , keeping the Jack aa a strengtheiier
without special significance. Another class
plays Invitation with small cards only , using
the American leads with high cards and the
fourth class la similar to It except that the
high card lead * are absolutely non-lnforma-
tory In every respect.
"With regard to the small -card loads the
same difference of opinion Is to bo found.
Ono class makes -tlio lead of the lowest card
of a suit convey the Invitation and another
picks 'certain ' cards as Invitation leads. For
example ono 'team ' may determine upon the
four , thrco and two as Invitation cards ,
whllo another may Include the flvo with the
thrco mentioned and still another tack on the
six. A few vary this by Including
uomo higher card '
