CIJMF TO AMERICA
(PubllPhPin' PrMii IdMd Wire
New York, Sejn. 2. It Is not general
ly known outsi'de the trotting horse
world that the late E. H. Harrlman
was an enthusiastic admirer of the
harness horse and did much to advance
the Interest of this typical American'
product. The, recent grand circuit meet
on the Goshen track Ik directly due to
Mr. Harrlman and the determination of
Mrs. Harrlmnn to carry out her hus
band's plnns in, this respect. The trot
ting vorld viewed this meeting, with
considerable Interest, for already the
cry has gene up In harness raclntr cir
cles that the solvation of the sport in
the east 'rests in the half-mile tracks,
and If this one proves the success it if
expected the tracks at Resdville and
Hartford will he cut in half.
When the followers of the uport in
this city decided not to try last year's
costly experiment of having a grand cir
cuit meeting at Empire City, It left a
leap In the grand circuit that spelled
ruin for the meetings at Ueadvllle,
Hartford and the state fair at Syracuse,
for the flyers would not lay lip for a
week. E. H. Harrlman was the fore
most., admirer of the trotter In this
, country and when the anti-betting laws
put the kibosh on thoroughbred racing
he came to the rescue with a meeting at
Goshen. Mrs. Harrlman has followed
her husband's example In this respect,
and Gosheh's meetings during the past
,three years have shown that trotting
race on a half-mile track can be made
profitable with the absence of. betting.
Giants Best Stealers.
The New Tork Giants are the boss
base stealers. Of the 10 leading base
stealers in the National league, no less
than six were In the Giant uniform.
Practically every high school in Pan
Francisco, Alameda, Marin, San Mateo
and Santa Clara counties has signified
Its Intention of playing the Rugby style
of football this seaeon. Never before
perhaps In the history of scholastic
athletic activities In California has such
marked uniformity been known.
Athletic sports will be a feature of
the New Tork state fair at Syracuse,
Monday, September 11.
London, Sept. 2. American golfers
should enjoy the visit of Harold H.
Hilton, three-time amateur gold Cham
pion of Great Britain, who will put
his skill against the best golfers
America in the series of games for
Speaking about his trip, before
sailed. Mr. Hilton said:
"My visit will last only three
lour weeks, and I shall be back In
London by October 1. I decided rather
suddenly to make the trip, therefore
my plans are Indefinite beyond a few
days' stay at the Knickerbocker hotel
during the champioriaiity serlfH. My
visit to New York is necessitated by
business, so I decided to go when the
golf championship tourney was on.

pion wrestler, will defend bin title
against George Hackenschmidt. the
"Russian Hon;" from whom tbo Iowa
trappier wrested the championship in
a contest in thla city on April a, 1908.
The bout has attracted attention on
both sides of the Atlantic and. should
prove the choicest tid-bit that haa been

of the gate receipts besides a large side

, reaUera are reported today, to
, be In the finest fettle for the match, and
all indications point to a desperate
struggle for supremacy. In a broad
sense the contest will be one of clever-
' ness against strength and endurance.
! Gotch is acknowledged to be the clever
est wrestler who ever stepped on the
j mat. llackensclin idt employs no little
I science In his moves, but his main reli
ance always has been his wonderful
power if strength and endurance.
Gotch Has Defeated Them AIL
Nearly all critics are agreed that
Frank (joteh In ; the greatest -wrestling
champion since (he days 6f Jack; Car
keck, when the latter was at his best.
Not so many years ago Gotch was work
ing on a farm in Inwa. "Farmer" Burns,
the old time wrestler, owned the farm
and it was as a scrt of trainer to Burns
that Gotch started in the game. That
was In the year 18S9. Since that time
the Iownn has engaged in 831 matches,
not counting many minor affairs, and of
this number he lost only seven, five of
them being handicap matches. In which
he failed to throw his man ' as many
times as agreed., Gotch practically be
came champion in 190 when be .defeated ,
championship three years ago. Gotch
won without a fall,, as Hackenschmidt
gave ub after two hours and eight min
utes of work on the mat without any
sign of a fall.
Xaok an All Around Athlete.
There Is probably no athlete in the
world with a greater reputation than
George Hackenschmidt. Previous to
taking up wrestling he was considered
the strongest msn in 'Europe, and he
was also one of the greatest athletes in
all around work. His first notable mat
contest was with Paul Pons'at that time
the Greco-Roman rhampion of the world.
Hackenschmidt won the match in 46
minutes. His success determined him
to become a professional wrestler. In
the succeeding years he defeated all'the
best men of Europe, wlthhut any appar
ent trouble. One of the most exciting
matches he ever had was when he met
Madrali, the "Terrible Turk," with an
unbeaten record. The match was for
the, world's championship. Notwith
standing the great strength and weight
of the' Turk, .Hackenschmidt defeated
him In Just 44 seconds. Not until he
met Frank Gotch did the big Russian
know the sting of defeat. Hacken
schmidt acknowledges that Gotch Is tile
cleverest mat in the game, but, he de
clares that In the -coming match -he will
he able to undermine the strength of
the champion with his far greater
strength and in the end will be returned
of the card, but large numbers of good
runners are coming In and two or three
running races a day will be given. Th
Portland Hunt club wilf have three num

The Bankers' purse, value $10,000, for
trotters eligible to the 2:12 class, will
be the attraction on Thursday, a big
day of the ' meeting. Portland inau
gurated this stake last yeari and It was
the attraction that drew the record
crowd of the week. Sacramento has fol
lowed Portland's example thla season
and this race was won at the Califor
nia State fair last Wednesday by King
brook 2:07, a gelding bred by C. X.
Larrabee of Portland and a trotter of
supreme class, that will possibly be the
favorite here. But Bon Voyage 2:08,

test is to be expected. The 2:12 pace
Is another tip top race for this after

Saturday, closing day, the consola
tion race for 2:12 trotters, worth $2000,
will be a feature. With the four money
Roseburg, Or.; Sitka Boy, also
winners in the main race of Thursday
out of the field, the consolation shows
a field in which the winners are hartl
to pick. The fastest number of the
program will be also on Saturday's
card, in the 2:05 pace. Jim Logan
2:05 '4, champion three-year-old of the
land, Sir John S. 2:04, the grand old
campaigner Sherlock Holmes 2:06, Dr.
B. P. 2:06, and others of this class
will aide wheel for a thousand dollars
then. The runs will be of better qual
ity than heretofore.
Portland will be the first meeting
place for the campaigners from Cali
fornia, the home horses and those from
British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatche
wan, Utah and Colorado, and the line up
will therefore he new. To the lover of
racing, therefore, this race week will
have the freshness of the untried and
ought to be the banner race meeting of
the year in. the North Pacific circuit.
