UU THE DAILY PICAYUNE NEW ORLEANS, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1896. 8 FOUR FAVORITES FINISH IN FRONT, Yaa Brunt, Sankara, Sidkal, Damocles ; and Maggie S. Taking Parses on the Winter Meetings Second Daj. The State Uniyersity Trounces the Texas Eleven. Maher Knocks Oat ChojnskI in Six . Bounds Cyclists Visit Amite Vvben race meeting begin disastrously to tie bookie they usually kick about the gam, and If It Is the other way the public does the kicking.' So far the knights of the chalk and chamois have had the kicking to do, though the seven doing business at the Fair grounds are such, Jolly good lot of fellows, that outside of a serious countenance, aot a whimper tia been, 'beard from them about their bad beginning. On Saturday the live well-played favorites won sil the money, and yesterday four of irhem got home la front, with a heavily-backed second choice winning the odd . one. The horses now racing are all In condition, and as the track is in good shape they are " running true to form- For this reason it is easy for the scientific dope-player to select the one to carry the money. The favorite to be defeated was Marquise, the daughter of Miser, who was made a 0 to 10 choice for the third race,' a seven-furlong selling affair for 3-year-olds. Of the seven carded to start, De-vault was the only withdrawal. Judging from the betting there were only two. Marquise and Sidkel; who bad a chance to win, and at the finish It was noticed that the educated . talent were in form. a Sidkel, in a drive, won by a scant length. There was daylight between Marquise and Dorothy, with both whipping. The closing price against the winner was S to 2. with a short figure for the place. Altogether the sport was very interesting and a large crowd, fur Monday, tilled the grand . stand. Every race was started well and promptly, and the people were on their way Lome at an early hour. Judge McDowell arrived from Baltimore in time to take his old place beside Colonel Simmons in the stand, but as none ot the finishes were very close ones these gentlemen did not have to exert themselves to place the horses as they flashed past the wire. Jockey Scherrer raptured the honors again by : winning two races, with Van Brunt in the first and Sankara in the second, Sankara is . a 2-year-old filly by imp. Deceiver, and is the ? roper ty of W. H. Laudemann, of Lexington, t la this gentleman's tirat appearance with bis horses at the local track, and as AL Weston is doing the training. It Is safe to say that the rotund bookmaker will have good success this winter. Sankara was backed down from 2 to 1 at the opening to 8 to o at post time., and after leading all .the way won very cleverly by a half length from Lineage, a well-bred filly from Mr. Madden's string. All the place horses were driving. Lineage only beating Hill Billy a neck for second money. The latter ran a capital race, coming from the rear In the last part of the Journey. Alvin W, who ran some good races up the line, was backed very well, but tired in the run home as If .a little short. He is a good colt, however, and will do later aon. The talent began well by selecting Tan Brunt to carry the money, and at 2 to 1 ha went to the post, with Albert S. a close second choice at a point longer. The favorite lost a little ground going aronnd the .first tern, but Scherrer bandied him nicely and fot fclm up in time to win by a neck from U hernia Queen, a 20 to 1 chance, who ran a good race and whose performance should be noted. Albert S. gave It op after running well In the front rank to the stretch. Sir John, as astsal, cut ont the pace for a short distance, bat could not live It out. The winner had a s little- left, at the end, though his jockey had to keep him going to win. He was entered to be sold for $200. but was not advanced over this figure. Cherrystone, the third horse, ran a fair race. George Bennett's Donald A. gelding, Damocles, shewed how improved he Is by winning the fourth race very handily In fast time from a fair field of sprinters. His recent performances and victories at St. Louis made the public accept a very short price against firm, but they all figured it "sure money," and thought 1 to 2 good enough. Dorah Wood led into the stretch, but was beaten a length In the run to the wire. Judith C, backed for second place, was third at the finish, with Sagwa and Test the tailenders. Maggie S. was the choice for the last race and won all the way, with Ozark. Jr., In the place, two lengths before Brakeman. who cut up badly at the post. The winner closed at to 5 and ran a very fair race for Maggie S. ENTRIES FOR TO-DAT. : First Race Parse 250; for 3-year-olds and upward-. One mile. Index. Weight. t Squire Q . . 98 3 Helen H.

Spiers arrived with his stable from Nashville yesterday. Among the lot, which Includes the great sprinter O'Connell, Is another - great race horse who has been in the stud near Nashville for the past three years. This la Major Domo, 9 years old, by Tom Ochiltree, out of Imp. Sweet Home, by Knight of St, .Patrick. The late D. D. Wethers, of Mon-. mouth park fame, bred Major Domo at his : Biookdale stud, and - until the fall of his 4-. year-old career, raced him in the "All Black" of Brookdale. He was sold at auction at the Morris park race track to Jockey Garrison for $2800. but before he was led away Mr. Spiers gave the "Snapper" $300 for his bargain, the : horse in this way costing him $3100, a very cheap figure for a horse ot his caliber. He won him out In a very short while, as he won six straight races on the Jersey tracks before be retired him for the winter. His career since then has been a very good one, losing the . frnbarbaa twice by small margins, besides . capturing stakes at all distances. His get are staunch-looking bones like himself, and Mr. Spiers thinks they will make good race horses. Major Domo Is very high in flesh and It will take some time before he goes to the post, W. A. Porter, with Eleanor Mc. ar.lved In town yesterday from Nashville, where he has been racing during the past week. His trainer Ed McGarry, is a Iran of large experience having had charge of the Dwyer Brothers' string at one time, and Mr. Porter expects to get the money the first time out. The 3-year-old colt Star Tobacco, by Forester, died at the track yesterday from an attack of lang fever. There are several other horses quite sick at the track, and among them Booze and Prince Imperial, two local favorites. W. Hutchinson, with Guard and Elyrla, arrived yesterday. Jockey Ross has also made bis appearance and will soon be seen In the saddle. " -;- -v Vv The attractions for to-morrow are a hurdle THE PICAYUNE'S RACING GUIDE. M05DAT, KOT. 16, 1896.

STATE UNIVERSITY TROUNCES THB TEXAS ELEVEN. Baton Rouge, La., Nov. 16. An Ideal evening, a throng of enthusiastic spectators, two splendid teams chivalrously contesting for mastery, a clean game and a victory of 14 to 0, in favor of Baton Rouge such, in brief, was the history of the football game played this afternoon on the university campus, between the Texas team and the State University team. It will long be remembered as one of the finest games ever played here, and there was not an untoward incident to mar the victory so gallantly won by our home boys. The Texans reached here to-day in fine condition for the contest, and it was not without misgiving as to the result that the cadets entered the contest against a team which had won .so many recent laurels. The boys were undaunted, however, and they went in to win, If skill andi courage could accomplish that result. They succeeded beyond the most sanguine expectations of their friends. In the large crowd of spectators the purple and gold, of course, predominated, but the yellow and wbiie of Texas was not without it friends, especially among the Plaquemine contingent, many of whom wore the colors of the Lone Star state. Both teams were in fine condition, and the game was highly interesting throughout. It was a clean game, and, altbougn vanquished, the Texans have no word of complaint as to the style of game played by the local team. The cadets are wild to-night over the victory, and their enti-usiasm took sbapo In a banquet which took place to-nlgbt, the two teams meeting as friends around the banquet board.' The game in detail was as follows: The game was called promptly at 3:30 o'clock, with a large attendance present. Texas won the toss and chose the south goal, which was slightly favored by the wind. The Louisiana State University kicked off for about 30 yards. Texas returned it ten yards. Texas made steady gains for about 15 yards, and then lost the ball on a fumble. Louisiana made gains through both tackles, and then Courier got clear around Texas' left end, dodged the lull-back, and made a touchdown for Louisiana. Time: 5 minutes. Gourier kicked, the goal. Louisiana. 6, Texas O. - Texas kicked off. Robertson returned it about 10 yards. Tne game worked back and forth on the field., both sides repeatedly losing the ball on downs. Texaa was not very successful in buck.ng the line. Louisiana's tackle plays were very successful, as also the half-back tandem play on tackle. Louisiana's second touchdown was somewhat of the fluke order, there being a question as to the distance gained in the three downs. The biggest gain made by Louisiana in getting this touchdown was on a kick fumbled by Texas. The touchdown was made by Robertson. Gourrier failed at the goal. Score: Louisiana 10, Texas 0. Texas kicked off, and Louisiana fell on It. They worked It back towards the center of the Held, when Texas held them on downs, and secured the ball. Then, by repeated pounding ot the line, they advanced the ball to Louisiana's 6-yard line, where time was called. If they had had one minute more, without doubt Texas would have scored. Texas kicked off at the beginning of the second half. Louisiana worked down the field to Texas' 30-yard line, where tne Texans braced up and he.d them for four downs and took tho ball.. They worked It back to the middle of the field, where they, were forced to kick. Louisiana secured the ball. Louisiana gained a little, and then kicked the bail over Texas' goal line, making a touchdown. - The ball ares brought out to the 2yard line -and kicked out. Louisiana very soon kicked again, and Texas returned the kick. Louisiana again returned" it on the first down, and secured the ball on a tumble. They tnen advanced the ball until forced" to kick, when they made a touchdown by securing the ball behind Texas' goal line. Robertson punted out for a fair catch. Nicholson caught it, Gourrier failed at goal. Score: Louisiana 14, Texas 0. The ball was kicked off by Texas, and the game shifted back and forth until time was called on Texas' 35-yard line. : It must be said that the Texas team- was not In its best form, owing to the irregular hours they had been forced to keep, and the bard game in New Orleans the preceding Saturday in which they -were forced to use all their substitutes. On the other band, the Louisiana State University had also played a bard game on the preceding Friday, la which on man was so disabled as to prevent hie playing to-day. The game waa not as one-eldaj as the score would seem to Indicate. Texas played good, hard football, and kept the Louisiana State University on the jump. Caperton, whose playing waa admired by all, was forced to leave the game early ki the second half, and King, who replaced nlm. was also soon after forced to retire with a sprained arm. The Louisiana State University right end. Slaughter, was also forced to leave in the middle of the second bslf. Both teams agree that It was one of the cleanest, hardest games of football ever played, in the- south. The Texas players who most distinguished themselves were Parker and Pfeiffer at tackle, and Caperton and (Maytubby at half-back. Ralston, at left-end, did not play his usual game, and neither did Acree. The three center men held well. For Louisiana State University, Arrlghi and Scott, tackles; Gourrier, Nicholson and Robertson, backs, and Slaughter nnd Westbrook, at the ends, did well. In fact, the whole team played their best game of the season. The line especially was very strong. THE SOUTHERN ATHLETIC ELEVEN. The Southern Athletic Club's candidates for positions on the football eleven were out In large numbers last evening, and one of the most satisfactory practice games of the season was. held. Captain Miller, who has proven himself one of the fastest and bardest tackle who haa played here In. three years, bad about sixteen men out for work. The big open lot at the corner of Sixth and Chestnut streets, which is owned by Mr. Rivers Richardson, one of the old players, has been loaned to the club for the season. Wires have been run from the electric light poles, and Wo bie are lights Illuminate the field. Here the men work, and will continue to train every afternoon until Friday, waen tne team wui w made up. The players are getting jnio oener cmuu-tlon. and their work last evening was more on the style of football. Previously the candidates have been doing individual playing, but the team work has begun to tell, and improvement is following fast. Captain Miller feels confident of winning next Saturday's game with a large score, and Is also confident that Baton Kouge will oe ouipiayea anu oai-tered all over the field. The Tulanea lacked the weight but had the speed, and the Southerns h v twth weight, eneed and experience. The line of the Southerns will be a strong one, and there are half a dozen men who can ana are willing to' play backs, and Johnson and Brooke are the candidates for full-beck, with Hoffman, Hollo wav and Baum as possible. quarter-backs. All three men sre fine. Hollosvay Is a com paratively new man, but he passes cleanly ana fost, especially to tho full-back. He is a strong rival of Hoffman, West Point's quarter of '95. To-nizht at 8 o clock the team will work again. As yet they have not departed much from the defensive work, but were are a num ber of good plays and some hard Interference work yet to be worked out. ALABAMA 38. SEWANEE 6. Montgomery, Ala., Nov. 16. The fottball team of the Alabama Agrlcvltural aud Mechanical College, at Auburn, defeated the Sewanee (Tennessee) University boys here this afternoon by a score of 38 to 6. They will have the southern championship this year. STOPPED THE VANDERBILT GAMES. Nashville. Tenn., Nov. 16.

The Associated Cycling Clubs held a meeting last night at the clubhouse of the Southern Wheelmen, on St. Charles avenue. There were present President H.- H. Beio, and Messrs. Aiken, McCurdy. Fourton, Finlay, Ablott, Fenner and Simpson. The main topic under disc UMion was the proposed meet, which It has been suggested be beld just before Mardl Gras, and for which Mr. O'Mal-ley proposed to put up $2500. Mr. Edwards was there to represent Mr. O'Malley. He said that there was to be a meeting of the committee of the club with Mr. O'Malley's committee to-night to arrange details. He said that the 250O was not to include the printing and advertising, wnich woulu be paid io- ouiciuv tt u. Mr. Aiken thought that there ought to be a definite agreement, so that the clubs would not b held responsible for tbe expenses U the affair waa not a success. Several of the members present said that they bad consulted lawyers regarding the liability of the clubs, aud theie were different opinions, the majority believing that In those clubt which aid not have cuarters the individuals would be liable. It was also said that the clubs could not combine under, the law and get a charter. There was a 'good deal of talking about this, which linaily ended in tue view tnat as Mr. O'Malley wou.d no doubt make the ciub secure there would be no need of securing a charter. Someone suggested that it might be understood -that the meet be given by Mr. O'Malley, under the auspices of the clubs, 'lfbe matter of a charter was laid on the taole. 'tne Tourists' Club sent a communication resigning from the associated clubs, on the g.-ound that their liability, being without a charter, would place the mimtxrs in a position to be responsible for the debts contracted in the proposed meet. The also said that they did not have the necessary twenty members for membership. It was decided to lay tbe resignation on the table and an amendment was proposed making the membership of cluba entitled to belong to the association 15, and It was thougnt that after the discussion of tbe liability the Tourists' Club would l-o doubt remain iu the affair. Toe appointment of committees came up. The president appointed as race meet committee, to meet with Mr. O'Malley a committee and to be the permanent committee, the following members: Robert Abbott, chairman; J. S. Fmlay, C. H. Fenner, Dr. A. S. Dyar and A. A. McCurdy. He appointed Mr. Fenner chairman of the track committee, and Messrs. Fourton and Miller as the others. Tbe prize committee will be composed of (Messrs. Finlay. Moore and Aiken, and the printing committee of Dr. Dyar, and Messrs. Graham and Aiken. There was some discussion aa to whether all these committees were needed fqr tbe proposed meet, but It was decided that permanent committees were needed for future events, and they might aa well be appointed at that time. Mr. McCurdy called attention to the run to be held next Sunday, and suggested that It be beld under tbe auspices of tho associated cluba. Mr. Simpson thought that aa It was in charge of the captains of the clubs -the association could hardly do this, but as there were four of the captains there and the other two were vouched for. it was decided that tbe associated clubs should take It under their auspices and do everything possible to make it a success. Mr. McCurdy suggested thst an members who were dropped from any club for nonpayment of duea be also dropped by other clubs in the association. TJils was put In the form of an amendment to the bylaws and lay over. -- : " , The . meeting adjour&ed. , THE LOCISIANAS AT AMITE. .
