California Expert's Dashing
Play Holds Gallery Spell
bound; Tilden Also Wins
Match With Ease.
Forest Hills, L. I.. Aug. 28. In a
series of bitterly fought matches in
which endurance played as promi
nent a part as skill, the majority of
the ' country's leading tennis players
forced their way to the fore in the
third day of the annual national
singles tennis championship at the
West Side tennis club. The two
outstanding favorites, R. Lindley
Murray, the Californian expert, play
ing from Niagara Falls, and W. T.
i Tilden, Jr., of Philadelphia, did not
have to play fourth and fifth sets to
Murray disposed of Theodore R.
Pell of New York, noted for his back
hand play in straight sets at 6-2; 6-0;
6-0. Murray showed the result of his
play and practice during the. past
week and appears to be rapidly
rounding into the form which has
made him so formidable in the past
rfell, despite his determined efforts,
was almost helpless before the dash
ing play which the Californian rac
quet start have made famous in re
cent years. - Murray's terrific service
and smashing forced Pell on the de
fense the greater part of the time
and with the exception of an occa
sional brilliant cross-court backhand
stroke Murray Was always holding
, the advantage and ( the attention of
the gallery of several thousand spec
Tilden, in eliminating Conrad B.
Doyle of Washington at 6-3; 6-1; 7-5,
can be said in a general way to have
.been in the same category with Mur
ray. Doyle put up a gallant fight
against the Philadelphian, but the
superiority of the latter was too great
to be overcome.

RECORD MADE BY
IN FREE FOR ALL
In Beating Two Fast Trotters
Philadelphia Filly Sets a
New Mark for 4-Year-Old
Readville. Mass., Aug. 28. Miss
Bertha Dil on was driven by iernll
to a world's trotting record for four-
year-old fillies of 2:02 1-2 in the free-
for-al trot at the Orand Circuit meet
ing at the Readville track today. The
Philadelphia filly owned by A. a. cox
beat the fast trotters St. Frisco and
Mabel Trask in each of their heats,
making the fast time in the second
mile. The record was formerly
2:04 1-4 held by Bertha McGuire and
made at Toledo on July 24, last.
The largest crowd seen a the track
since the American trotting derby
was held here in 1902 was on hand
to honor the veteran driver "Pop"
Geers on Geers day. The veteral
started in all four races, but failed to
land a winner. He had the satisfac
tion of driving St. Frisco when that
horse pushed Miss Bertha Dillon to
the new record. Geers 'was in posi
tion to win the third heat of the 2:11
pace, but Billy Jackson broke while
leading the bunch down the stretch
and finished fourth. This race re
quired an additional mile for heat
winners and A Game of Chance beat
May Bird, a Bay state circuit pacer,
in a close finish.
Nella Dillon, a sister of Miss
Bertha Dillon, won the American
horse breeder futurity, the largest
purse event on the card.
Chilcoot, a Canadian trotter and a
favorite, won the 2:10 trot in straight
heats, giving June Red, driven by
Geers, her second beating this year,
Chilcoot established a record for the
event by going the second heat in
