New Tork. Dec 1. They're off at New
Orleans! and Judging by the first three
days of the racing, all. the rosiest predic
tions of the winter season of 1804-6 are
certain of realisation. Never have there
been so many "horses at the Crescent
.City track, and the class la very much
higher thsn It hss been since the inau
gurstlon of winter racing at the Cres
cent City. The crowds have been large
nd enthusiastic, and they have been
treated to high class sport. The south

of the average southern sporting man
with a roll on his person and flrst-clsss

bookmaker Iv less" than IS books were
open for business on Thanksgiving day,
and so fsr as the returns at present

well satisfied. New Orleans ts to have
two tracks In operation after the end
of the year. The Crescent City Jockey
club will have the field to Itself up to
NeW Year's, but on December 6 the
Western Jockey club will meet and allot
dates for 105. It Is altogether prob
able that they will divide time between
the Crescent City club and the New
Orleans Jockey club. - The purses end
stakes offered by the new organisation
are of sufficient valoe to attract the
best horses st New Orleans, and there is
little doubt that-the two clubs will sgrec

which Is now the system In vogue In
this country. Opinion smong horsemen
Is divided on this question, and the suc
attained hv the experiment at New
Orleans will have much to do with ths
future method of handicapping on all
ih. ..iiprn tracks While there has
been some dissatisfaction over the
weights assigned to Mr. V os burg In
. some races, and unquestionably this vet
ersn has made mistakes at times, the
best opinion among trainers and owners
in these parts Is that the single handi
capper will on the whole give the best
results; sllll they are not hidebound,
and If the New Orleans experiment
. vindicates the claims of those who favor
the board system, they are willing to be
con v tTicd .
Among the visitors In this city during
the week was Manager H. D. Brown, of
the New Orleans Jockey club, who has
been te all the racing canters east and
west In the Interests of his meet. Mr.
drown left the latter part of tho week
for Washington, where he will explain to
owners and trainers just what ho ex
pects to do. He is enthusiastic, not
only In regard to tho future of the new
venture, but of the racing situation In
New Orleans In general. He said:
"Horsemen who never before have
raced at New Orleans will be on hand.
The Schrelbcr, Corrlgan. Dunne. Ellison.
Bennett and Schorr stables will be there
In force; Billy Lakeland, an old-timer
t New Orleans; H. If. Mason and others
who will come on from the east Natur
sllly with us the booking is an Im
portant Item, and It Is certain that twice
the number of bookmakers will be on
hand this winter than In former years.
With the poolrooms closed there should
be good business for all. There Is quits
an Interest In trotting: races down our
way, and It ts Intended to hold a meet
ing for the trotters each fall, following
the Memphis meeting, provided this can
be arranged so as not to interfere with
the opening of the Crescent City Jockey
"Our stakes will be closed todsy. and
we are encouraged by the Interest taken
In the meeting by horsemen of the best
clsss. both In the east and In the west."
The plungers have got all the worst

hardly a layer of odds who has not
added much to his bank account. George

Speaking of the Kennel club. J. A.
Taylor, who Is In a position to know
the sentiments of the members ss nearly
as anyone can. states that although
published reports ladlcste pending
trouble at the annual meeting, which
will be held In Justice Reld's court
rooms this evening, he does not believe
that anything beyond the regular rou
tine of business will transpire. "There
are several prominent members," says
Mr. Taylor, "who would like to have
the membership of the club transferred
from the W. K. L. to the A. K C , but
thinks that these gentlemen are too
good sportsmen to try to force their
Ideas on the great majority and that
they will be patriotic enough to first
consider the welfare of the Portland
Kennel club, which has been remark
ably successful under W. K. L. Juris
diction The conservative members can
see nothing- to be gained by such a
move, but that much would have to be
relinquished, as all tbe past work of
the club would be practically worthless
If such a step were taken. The pioneer
and working section sre not likely to
sllow their work of years to be burled
for the sake of becoming a part or the
A. K. Cm which has done nothing to
encourage dog mstters in this locality,
but on the other hand has done everything-
possible to break up the home
league, and) at the present n.'oment
promises to taboo It by maintaining
certain disqualifying- rules. This taboo
Is almost too funny for serious con
sideration, as the worst effect would be
to deprive league club members of the
services of only one or two prominent
Judges Who are officially connected
with the A. K. C. should their services
be desired. There sre msny others tn
the flelri, however, equally competent.
and as a dbg show juage is aiws.ys re
munerated with a good fat fee. It la
hardly likely thst the taboo will be
long-lived. In the meantime, it noes
not seriously worry a large percentage
of coast fanciers, who claim that the
rules of the W. K. L. are In set an Un
nrnvement on these of the A. K. C.

0. A. C WlU PLAY
Game with the Agries Practically
Assured for Christmas
Oregon football followers will be
pleased to learn that a game between
Multnomah and Corvallis Is practically
assured for Christmas afternoon In this
city. Manager Watkins has been trying
for severs! months to arrange a same
with tbs Oregon Agricultural men. but
ths regents would not give their con
sent, but It was learned this morning
thst a majority of the regents wsrs In
favor of the scheme, snd that the only
thins necessary to do was for the board
to give Its formal ssnctlon.
There Is no team on the Pacific coast
that can give Multnomah a harder game
than O. A. C. Although Oregon defeated
them $ to $, and while not detracting In
the least from Eugene s victory, the loss
of three of O. A. C.'s star men greatly
hsndlcapped the Corvallis eleven. Now
thst Multnomah only defeated Oregon
7 to 0. or really $ to 0, the meeting- be
tween the club and O. A C. should be
a most Interesting event. The fsct thst
the game "Will be played on Christmas
will give both teams plenty of time to
get In shape for the fray. The Corvallis
eleven Is a strong aggregation, and. in
condition, can cope with any team on
the coast. Anyway. It will be a treat to
see such a match, and the football par
tisans trust that tho negotiations for the
match may not fall through.
For the first time since the Thanks
giving game the Multnomah football
squad will meet this evening for prac
tice at the B. 8. A. gymnasium. The
close approach of the Astoria game,
which Is scheduled for Saturday after
noon, haa had tbe effect of setting the
boys together, as each man on the team
realises thst a hard same will result
when Multnomah and Astoria meet.
Although the club men havs defeated
Albany and Oregon and other well Ma
soned teams, and scored a $ to 0 vic
tory over tile Astorians, ths feeling pre
vails that the coming match on Satur
day will be a stubbornly fought one.
Another thine that is worrying the
club members Is the strong game that
Is being plsyed by "Chancy" Bishop's
Willamette eleven. Willamette recently
defeated Albany 1$ to 0. the same score
by which M. A. A. c. beat Albany, and
aa Bishop's men sre In 1 fine condition,
snd have been splendidly coached, their
chances against Multnomah ars exceed
ingly bright. Of course, the superior
weight and greater experience of the
club men will prevail over their younger
lighter opponents, but It Is an as
sured fact that the club men will have
to keep their eyes opened In this match.

WILL HARVARD AND
YALE END RELATIONS?
Scheme Proposed Whereby East
ern Championship May Be
Satisfactorily Settled. )
With one of the most peculiar ssasons
on record Just brought to a successful
conclusion by the brilliant contest at
Philadelphia between the army and
navy it would seem a trifle premature
at this time to talk about what is likely
to happen next season, but' there to some
talk among football men now which
merits attention even at this asrly day.
First In Importance, if true, is a report
which comes from New Haven to the
effect that there la a possibility that a
break may come between Tale and Har
vard. The cause ssslgned for the fric
tion between the great eastern univer
sity rivals ts the Insistence on the part
of Harvard tn play ins Matthews, her
negro football star. In spite of the fact
that Tale had Intimated strongly to the
Harvard football authorities that there
wss great opposition on the part of
msny Tals men. particularly those of
southern birth, against playing with a
negro opponent. .
Princeton also Is said to share Tale's
feelings In the matter the negro ques
tion standing In the way of the arrang
ing of athletic relations between these
two great institutions. If there to any
thing In these stories, the portion re
ferring to Princeton and Harvard to
more likely to be true, the southern ele
ment being stronger st Nssshu than at
any of the eastern universities.
Another football story is to tne effect
that negotiations ars either under wsy
or soon will be, in whloh Tals. Prince
ton, Columbia and Pennsylvania are
mentioned, for the arrangement of a
football schedule which will truly de
termine the eastern championship in
stesd of leaving it up la the air. aa It
Is this season. This report has the
merit of being most desirable in any
event. If the four universities men
tioned should take up this matter In
earnest they will settle it without sny
difficulty, and should also easily ar
range a mstch with ths champions of
the esst snd the west, end so ssttle the
nstlonal championship. It to true thst
the shortness of the season makes the
arranging of a schedule between tbe
half dosen lesding teams, wbtch havs a
rlaht to championship aspirations, dif
ficult. These difficulties are by no
The ending of the football season
turns tbs attention of college athtetes
to other games. There is every Indi
cation that this will be an exceedingly
successful season for basketball, hookey
and similar games. All the leading uni

December 10 with tbe game between
