New York, Dec II. la there a race

racing men here, aa a result of the re
fusal of the Western Jockey club to
grant dates to the newly-formed New
Orleans Jockey club. Members ac
qualnted with the situation regard the
outlook aa aerloua. They say the men
behind the new club have money and
Influence, and are ready to start In de

In which event there would be mlxup

Smsthers' trotters successfully, will de

head, half of which will be campaigned
In the west under "Bam" Hlldreth's di
rection, and the other half under Bear'a
management, will be placed on the New
. York circuit.
Hlldreth's extensive purchase of year
ling's last September at Bbeepshead Bay
attracted much comment at that time,
and the assertion wss made that be was
preparing to come upon the eaatern turf
It now appears Hint Mr. Bmathera was
all slong his financial backer. The new
snd enlarged stsble of the former owner
of MhJot Delmar is mors than likely to
pay Its way, both In the east and In the
west, which was not the case when Mc
Chesney, Leontdas and others comprised
the atable during the season of 1904.
, Mr. Smathers la said to. have In con
templation the purchase of a famous
atud farm In Tennessee.
The racing In the aouth and on the Pa
i Hi. coaat is followed closely by racing
I men here. Many a new horse and Jockey
' will get In trim at the winter tracka for
I a HID log on the metropolitan tracka next
. aprlng. and the wlae followera of the po
nies are on the watch for possible de
velopments. Talking of western horses coming east.
It Is gratifying to learn that the reported
retirement of Dick Welles to the stud la
with. tut foundation.
At ths time It Is assured there Is po
' reason for believing that the edit, which
. Is the holder of two world's records, will
not face the barrier In the rich handicaps
next' season, as he Is absolutely sound.
- The Injury which he received aa the re
sult of an accident he mat with last
spring has In no way Incapacitated him,
and when he arrived at the Harlem
track last fall With the remainder of the
horses belonging to hla owner, he was fit
. and ready to go; but. as there were only
s few unimportant events for him, his
'.owner decided, to nut him out of train
ing and rest him for the big races next
In the opinion of a majority of horse
men, this lay-off will not Interfere with
' the colt. They believe that be will de
rive great benefit It la the Intention of
his owner to race him In the eaat next
season, and he will be entered In all of
the big events. During the winter he
will' be bred to a few of Mr. Respess' se-
' lect mares.
The story Is again current that Rich
ard Croker, former boas of Tammany,
Is to get the great stallion Meddler, the
leading winning sire of the past season.
, It ta hard to determine whether or not
there Is any truth In the report. The
beat opinion here, however, la that Med
dler will atay In thla country at tha
head of Clarence H. Msckay'a atud. It
would be a mlafortune for this splendid
sire to leave thla country.
According to reports that come from
Lexington, Ky . the many breeding es
tablishments In and about that city have
Buffered considerably from the continued

Corvallls, Dec. II. The O. A. C. men

scrimmage work is In progress every
afternoon on O. A. C. field. The mem
bers of the Junior eleven take equal
Interest with the first team players,
and the squad Is all thst could be de
sired. Coach Bteckle Is perfecting the
offense with which he swept the Wash
ington eleven off Its feet snd rolled up
a score of 21 to 0 In the first half of
the game at Seattle October II. Tha
team la stronger now, and will be
stronger still on Christmas day, and
should be able to give the Multnomah
players a highly Interesting contest.
A feature which did not appear In the
game between O. A. C. and U. of O. will
be the playing of George Herbert Rqpt
at halfback. He Is the third best 16
yard sprinter in the college, and his
weight hovers around the 100 notch.
He Is equally effective at plunging or

Close of Football Season Finds
the Light of Foot Seek
(Journal spa rial Berries.)
New York. Dec II. Now that the
football season Is over, college athletes
are turning their attention to other
aports. Of most Immediate Interest Is
hockey. The sport has grown In popu
larlty with great rapidity during the
paat few winters, and the play thla year
promises to excel In speed and clever
ness anything displayed by the col
legians In the past Tha candidates at
the various universities are already
practicing for the season, which opens In
this city Jsnuary 7. The squads, while
waiting' for the formation of Ice, have
been doing their training Indoors, and
to date have hardly passed the prelim
Preparations have been made, how
ever, to remove the scene of action to
the open air Juat aa soon as Jack Frost
sees fit to show hla hand. At Yale and
Harvard special rinks will be ready to
furnish the necessary practice aurface,
and with the flrat cold anap of any du
ration the skaters will begin the devel
opment of team play under competent
coachea. At Columbia the squad haa
the advantage of being able to practice
at the St. Nicholas rink, and this is ex
pected to be of much advantage to the
team when the annual struggle for the
Intercollegiate championship begins.
Two contests will probably be played
by the Yale team at New Haven before
the Christmas vacation, and the men
who show up best In these games will
be taken on the annual Chrlatmas trip
to Pittsburg. This will start after
Christmas, and, although arrangements
have not yet been definitely made, four

WHAT SEATTLE SAYS
ABOUT COMING GAME
Fourteen members of the Multnomah
Athletic club football team and Manager
Frank E. Watktns will arrive In Seattle
Saturday morning to do battle with tbe
rejuvenated team of the Seattle Ath
letic club at Recreation park next Sat
urday afternoon. The Multnomah men
will come with the expectation of win
ning the game by a couple of touch
downs, but there may be a surprise In
store for them before the referee's whis
tle blows tha end of the second half.
The Seattle team Is fast rounding Into
fchape. It will be a faster aggregation
next Saturday than in. any game this
year, and team work wtll be more highly
developed. Captain Van Hovenberg haa
at last secured fast, strong' men, and
as the condition of the men Improves
as they continue training, more attention
la given to getting the plays away faat
and developing the Interference.
Multnomah, has no snap to beat Se
attle next Saturday, and any man who
wants to bet that tha Portland club
writ run away from the locals Can get
his money covered. The youngsters
from the second 'varsity team snd the
High school give the required speed to
the team, while the old-timers like
Slgrlst. Van Hovenberg, Wells and
Turner give It steadiness. It ought to
be a good, game to watch, and If the
weather is fine a big crowd will be
out. Seattle Times.
Loyalty to the club In preference to
si" i ll obligations should be the motto
of the local footballlsts.
A little prsctlce now and then I
needed by Multnomah men.
Captain Dowllng has Issued a call for
every man on the squad to report for
practice this evening.
Orleve or Rlntoul at center. Ross and
Seeley guards. Stow and Oault tackles,
snd Jordan and Dowllng ends, make a

A story haa leaked out at Yale about
the generosity of Tom Shevlln. the star
football player. Shevlln'a father keeps
him well supplied with this world's
goods, and Thomas. It Is said, haa
more than he knows what to do with.
Yet he la democratic In his ways, snd
numbers all kinds of students among
hla friends. Not long ago a student
In straightened circumstances who Is
working his way through Yale found
sn envelope containing a 3100 bill In his
room, with the simple statement: "This
Is for you. Good luck." No name was
signed to the note, but it waa soon
whispered that Shevlln, who had
taken a fancy to the studious one, hsd
befriended him. 8hevlln will not talk
about the matter, but his friends say
"It Is Just like him."
They are still dickering at Harvard
over the question of a head football
coach for next year. The talk of en
gaging Bill Reld at a $5,000 salary has
prompted a Crimson comment that pro
fessional coaches are not needed at
Cambridge. Yet Freddy Colson. who
coached the Harvard crews, ..received
"expenses," while Chesbro and Keeler,
professional ball players, openly coach
ed the 'varsity nine last spring. If
Reld Is not Induced to come back to
Harvard aa coach, why not turn over
the whole business to Captain Hurley,
who has been re-elected, contrsry to
custom? Hurley can play football, and
surely knows as much about the game
aa some of the Individuals who made a
meaa of things this year.

The boy who wins the fight conclusively

Nelson match will be the 20-round bout
between Kid McCoy and Jack Sullivan

later In the month. The Boston man
gained hla point In holding McCoy to
his verbal agreement after their last

a questionable decision. McCoy, front
reports, Is In first-class condition, and
has added several new tricks to his al
ready extensive repertoire. Whether
they will prevail against the onslaughts
of the husky Bostonlan ta a question.
In their last meeting Sullivan claimed
that ha should have been given at least
a draw, and that the weight scheme was
against his chances of winning. Pre
sumably this matter will be adjusted
to his satisfaction when they meet, and
the bout should be a good exposition of

Opinion Among Club Men Is
That Strongest Men
The Multnomsh football team . will
leave here tomorrow night for Seattle,
where a match will be played with the
st rutin Seattle Athletic club on Saturday
afternoon. There haa bean considerable
worrying among the men who decide the
fatea of players and games, as to who
shall compose the local team on the trip.
Of course the necessity of leaving sev
eral of the stars at home has caused
such a flurry that the odds on the re
sult have changed In Seattle's favor, and
consequently Injured Multnomah's
chances of winning. Why all this talk
was started regarding tha personnel of
the eleven la a matter for the subjunc
tive mood and conjectural tense. Every
body knows, or should know, that tha
young men who give up their evenings
for practices and considerable of their
time for football, are doing their best
for the club, and when It comes ta the
selection of a team to take a trip, the
rholce of Manager Watklna and Cap
tain Dowllng should stand without the
crltlclam of those who "toll not, neither
do they spin." and who wouldn't know
the difference between a hay wagon and
a football, were a diagram offered.
There la one thing certain about the
coming trip, and that Is Multnomah
should send her strongest tesm to the
sound A club eleven or a college team :
cannot hope to endure, when a certain
few are enjoying pink teaa, golf tete-a-
tetes and society politics, during the
hard games of the season, snd then ap-
pesr on the gridiron with flaming Jer
seys snd trumpets for high honors when
the holiday gamea are on. Captain
Dowllng has tried to correct these mat
ters, but it Is a difficult thing to adjust.
If a man's heart Is In football for ths
sake of football and the good of the
club, he will be ever ready to Jump In
and play a game whether there are 5.000
spectators present or a small crowd of
Now, the Seattle game has been ar
ranged and the members of Multnomah's
football team are duty bound to turn out
and send the best eleven possible to the
sound. It means much to Seattle to win
Saturday's game, snd the locsl men.
knowing this, should enter Into this
gsme with sll the spirit and power at
their disposal. Multnomah cannot win
with her second team or with more than
one eleventh of It, either. The local
clubmen must present a lighting eleven.
one that can stand the battering or those
husky men of the sound city, and one
that can take the ball and sweep through
Seattle for consistent gains. There
won't be much use In taking a nursery
aggregation along, so now Its up to
