EMINENT ATHLETES WILE BESEEN HEBE Sheridan, McGrath and Haskins Among Those Who Will Take Part in the Federal Games Next Month. Martin J. Sheridan of the Irish-American <!uo. nil around champion of the world. and Matt McGrath of the New York Athletic Club (conqueror of the mighty Flanagan in the lK-pound hammer throw, and the present American champion weight thrower) will meet in two weight events, and Guy ll.isklns of the University of Pennsylvania, intercollegiate half, one-mile and crosscountry champion. will run in the one-inUe handicap and on the Pennsylvania two-mile relay team at the federal indoor games in < onvention Hall on Saturday. February 15. Sheridan and McGrath will compete j early in the evening in a spe.-al t^ie.lxepound Hhotjut with best men of the south Atlantic dn itfion, and near the end of the program the two New York giants wi m-et in a special fif'y-six-pound weight throw for height in an attempt to make a new record for the ?vent. Sheridan wi.l also he in a special three standing broad jumps against several local and Baltimore ^ fa^t that these men. with ("nrtmeli. the Pennsylvania captain ami interc"llcgtatr> champion at I'*' and --0 yards, ate practically certain of being members of t!>e American team width will Compete in the Ixuidon Olympic games in July makestheir appearance In the federal games a ^ most Interesting event. I lie work ot bin ldan in the Olympic iwrni.- nt Athens in IDUb will not soon be forgotten. t<>r it was In those events he scored mor.- points than any other m.in in competition ?">? almost as many as all the other membe r. | of the American team comlvnel. At me National A. A- V. championships in Jamestown last Septemh-r Sheridan won the discus throw in both the American and Greek .style, completely outclassing his competitors, including big Kalph Rose, the world's champion shot-putter. In a letter which Manager Stuart received from him -v estei day the champion says: l had a tryout last night and And that I am in 1 wetter londition than ever. I think McGrath can break the record for the pound weight for height.^ Some of us are sure to do it very soon. Record May Be Broken. Although McGrath is an all-round weight man. his specialties are the fiftysix-pound weight for height and the sixtee'i-pound hammer throw, lie won the Indoor national championship in the former event last November, beating Sheridan only an inch and a half, and the all-round champion is anxious to get anothe- chance at his rival. W ith a tierce but friendly rivalry between the two big iVll&ws, it looks as if Sheridan's prediction concerning the breaking of the recoro will be made good. McGrath has a rccord of 171 feet for the sixteen-pound-| hammer. Although slightly taller, he lcbuiit very much on the same lines a.1. Flanagan, who is his cousin. Haskins is the fastest amateur mile | runner in the United States, and only two other Americans have ever made better time for the distance. It was at- the Intercollegiate championships in Cambridge last May that the Quaker fly. r ran the mile in *.20 3-5. breaking a record which had stood for twelve years. Aft&r a rest of only forty minutes llasktna -went out and -won the half mile in 3.511-0. and by so doing won the champiollkbiu for his university. The versatility of the man was well demonstrated In 'November, when he won the interi nUiVfciii cross-country championship. Neither Haskins nor McGrath has ever competed in Washington, and their appearance In the federal games will be a. notable event in local athletic circles. The Belay Races. Tlie Pennsylvania two-mile relay team, on ?0tfch Haskins will ran the final relay; ttlll have as the other members Joe?#? eross-country captain, Quigley and Hartranft. This team will run a handicap relay race against George "Washington and probably also John Hopkins. "With three weeks more for training the Hatcbe-t ites will be in first-class condition and should give the Quakers a close call for the honors. Handicap relay lacing is a new game to Washington, and ] the George Washington men are determined to make a winning start. Besides the two-mile relay there will be a one-mile event between the Catholic Vriverslty of America and St. John's Collfge of Annapolis. St. John's beat the Bruokland University in the federal games last year by a very narrow margin, and as they have lost Harrison, their former captain and fastest man. it looks as If the suburban quartet will have more than an even chance to wipe out last j yaar's defeat. The men* who w.ll run on the teams which will represent Washington and Baltimore in tlie intercity one-mile relay will be selected this week. Sniitiison of the Gurlf y Club, and Herring, the South Atlantic champion, seem to be sure of making places on the team, with the choice for the other two places f.sting among Smith cf tJeorgetown Prep.. Dick and Hamilton of the Central High School. Burke of the Washington School for Boys. Sehlosser of the National Guard. Heald of the V. M. C. A. and Tanner of the Western High School. Baltimore has Harrison of the Mount Washington Club, Stollenwerck and Stewart of Hopkins Bruns and Sad tier, also of the Mouift i Washington Club. Fourteen Relays on the List. The federal games will do a land office business in relay races this year. So mjtny requests have been made by school and club teams for races that Manager Stuart announced last night that the classification of teams must bo closed not later than next Saturday night. There are already fourteen relays on the program. The George Washington games la*t night furnished a good opportunity for trying out the young athletes of the schools who will he leading contestants in the federal games for the Pennsylvania alumni trophy cup. but there are a number of out-of-town schools not represented then whose representatives will cut very much of a figure In tlie struggle for the cup. Both the trophy cup and the individual prizes will be on exhibition in the sporting grods stores the latter part of this week, and the sale of tickets will begin at the same plates a week from tomorrow. Bn tries for the federal games will close Friday, February 7, with W. tl. Stuart, I'/J 14th street northwest. RODRICK TOPS THE LIST. End of the Down-and-Out Bowleg Tournament. The down-and-out tournament which has been on at the I'alace allevs for about a month, was ended last night with Rodri>;k topping the list. Sixteen tnen qualified for the tournament, and after the first set of games was over tie eight men who were on the small side of the score card dropped out, leaving eight men to tight it out for the first honors. Then tho eight men paired off and the four losers dropped out, leaving the four men who played last night. The four men in last right's ?ame.s were Hodrick, Waters. Miller and Gorman. Rodrlck and Waters won out In the semi-final matches, and the ?former triumphed over Waters in a very fast roll, which ended one of the best and most Interesting tournaments every played at the Palace.

ISO 19- 614 T HURTS_PHCHEHS Stars "Back Up" After Landing Trophy for Their Clubs. By OEOIWIE ij. MORELANP. Friends of AVi'?l Bill Donovan arc prodieting great tilings of him during the season of 1908. His work during the season of I'M>7, when ho won twenty-five out of twenty-nine games, h percentage of .802, of course, gives tliein plenty o? latitude to base their claims on. However, should this sterling twirier duplicate his work of the year just passed, ho will prove the reverse lo any other pitcher who has had to carry the burden of work that was put upon his shoulders. Have the fans in Detroit and other cities stopped to think of what hapjioned to other stars who did the bulk of work for the teams that have had a part in the world's championship games since the modern world's championship games began in 10U3? I doubt very much if this grand pitcher will come anywhere near winning tne games this season he did last, ftvc" should the Tigers win the. pennant. 1 base mv opinion on the result of the past. 1 have gone over the records ot the work of Iiiillippe, Young and Dineen who diil the majority of work T>, ' uui that of Mathewson. < oaKley, I lank and Bender of 1 and tie results <> Walsh ..rock. White and Brown ot 1?.H".. Let us go luck to the beginning of the iatter world's championship games between Boston and Pittsburg in l'.KKl. During tin: season priur to the games .vhieh resulted in Boston winning tive out of eight from Pittsburg, who captured the National League championship, ami what was the result? "Deacon" Phillippe, tue grand twirier of the Pirates, had no trouble winning twenty-four out of thirty-three games, giwnj a percentage of 4*Cy,T Young ot the JBosions won t^cniy-nine and lost eight, while Dinoen won twenty-one and lost thirteen, giving them percentages of .7S4 and .018. What was the result, dear fans, the following year? Phillippe. who reported in the best possible condition, managed to win but half liis games out of the twenty he pitched. }'oung won twenty-six against twent>nine the year Boston captured the world s championship, and lost sixteen, just twice as many as he did in l'.Htf. His percentage of winning games was .010, against .<84 in 1008. Bill Dineen was more fortunate than Young, for he was able to win twentythree games and lose fourteen in l'.H>4, as against twenty-one won and thirteen lost ?n vmi. But it must be remembered that Young pitched in over half of the games, consequently his work proved much harder. The strain was that much more than that imposed upon Dineen. The latter pitcher, though, has since pone back from the work imposed upon nim. while, after a year's rest. Young has regained his form. Look at Phillippe, one of the grandest pitchers in the country prior to these series of games. Hehas been practically out of the running ever since. Phillippe has shown flashes of his brilliancy in several games, but he has never been the same old reliable Phil since the Boston-Pittsburg series. New York vs. Athletics. "Where could a better quartet of pitchers be found than Mathewson, Coakley, Plank and Bender, the pitchers who did the bulk of the twrirling In the memorable series? Mathewson, who was invincible In the series, shutting out the Athletics three times, look at his work the following season, when he was able to win 22 and lose 12 as against 31 won and 0 lost in 1905. Many will say his HX)6 record was a good one, grant that point, but it was not the work of "Matty" of 1005. He really lias not been the great pitcher since, as his work during the past two years will prove. In lDtXi, the season he did such grand pitching against the National League clubs, as well as_ against the Athletics, when he won .775 per cent, of his games from the other teams in the leagu* and 1,000 per cent against the American League champions. His record for the following year shows .047 per cent wins, a drop of 123 points. What was the result in the camp of the Athletics? Coakley, who did so much to win the pennant for Connie Mack, winning 17 out of 25 games in 1005, a percentage of .680, as against 7 won and 8 lost, a percentage of .407 in 1000. a loss of 213 points. Bender, another star of the American League, who won IS and lost 11 games, could not win over 15 out of 25 the following season. Plank, who took part in two games being shutout both times, was the exception to the general rule as he had a better percentage of victories in 19u0 than he had the year before, although he won but 19 games against 24, still he lost but 0 against 12. This is why he had a better percentage of victories. He could not, however, win as many games in lOOti as he did in 1005. Sox vs. Cubs. Here Is a series that will give a good example of my argument as to a pitcher not being as good after working in a world's championship series as he was prior to it. The Sox had in Altroek and Walsh, two | of the best exponents of left-handed twirling and the spit-ball in the business. Have either be eft the same since they defeated Chance and his Cubs? Not so you can notice it. Altroek was the cause of the Sox not being the contenders against the Cubs last faH instead of the Tigers. Had this let t-hander not outpitched himself during the series of l4.*>*? he would have been able to take his turn on the rubber and win games the same as he did in 10iw?. In that year his record shows 2t> victories and 13 defeats, a percentage of .006. What did we ;ind him doing last year.' Why, finishing the season with a measly percentage of .400 a loss of 21HJ points. \itn>-k worked in but twenty games in 1007. of which he won but eiiiht. and Jt was not his pitching that defeated the other team by a long shot. Bdward Walsh, the great spit artist, was a winner last year, despite his hard work during the fall previous, but he, like Altroek, had a grand team behind him that could win from almost any te,am. His j wins were mainly during the first part of the season, for he won eighteen out of twenty-tive- by the end of July. After that he was not able to go the distance, which shows that lie was at last caught by the strain of 1900. Miner Brown, who was the sensation of was not the Dlteher last year by a great deal that he was the season before. He won twenty-six out of thirty-two in r.mtt. while last season he won twenty out (.f twenty-six. a loss of forty-three points, llis good showing, however, should be credited to the work of the team, for almost any person could have won games with that bunch last season. Brown, like Walsh, did his best work in the i-arlv part of the season before the strain began to tell. Brown won eighteen out of the first twenty-two games. Pittsburg being responsible for two of the defeats. Not Dead Ones. This article was not written with any intention of proving that the pitchers who have taken part in world's championship games are dead ones by any means. We all know that the boys who heave the i>igskin to the batters must be above the average to win even GOO per cent of their games, still the argument that 1 have given above goes to prove that as has been contended a pitcher after having gone throush a hard, grueling series such as all world's championship games are is not the twirler the following season he was when he helped his team to the highest honors of base ball, a championship flag. The effects uoon the Cubs in the games against the" Tigers is not as liable to affect them as it has other Ditchers, for the boys all had it easy comparatively. the> had so many pitchers 011 the staff 1 that every "fie of them could have taken a turn ami then had some left. The world's championship did not depend upon one man, as it did with Detroit, who hud to look to Wild Bill to bring home the honors. That lie was not equal to the j. A LITTLE GAME OF CARDS.

DEPARTMENTAL CHESS LEAGUE REMARKABLE SIMULTANEOUS PLAY BY JACQUES MIESES. The race for the Departmental League championship has now resolved itself into a duel between Treasury and Interior. 1 iThe former had been at the head of af- , fairs from the start, alt though Interior ; and Government Printing Office had always been within striking distance. Treasury had to submit to a draw in the seventh round, and as Interior has kept up its winning streak the two teams are now tied for the lead. The Printers have ex- j perienced ill-luck of late, losing three i matches in succession: this not only takes them out of the running for the championship, but for the present loses them third place, which is now occupied by Agriculture. Both the leaders won in the eighth j round. Treasury defeating G. P. O. by 3 ; to 1 ami Interior almost administering a whitewash to Agriculture. Hitchcock saved this by drawing a well-played game witih Byler. Navy had its opportunity of getting out of last place, it beinpr drawn against its nearest neighbor, Commerce and I^abor. This match was unlinished, owing to the postponement of one of the games, but | Navy has the preferable position, having j won two of the three games completed.

Jacques Mieses, the chess master, gave an extraordinarily line exhibition of rapid transit chess in a simultaneous tourney at the Chess Club. This was the event of the se ison in local chess circles, and despite the inclement weather a good-sized company of spectators was on hand to witness the proceedings. Mieses was opposed by twenty-three players and came out with the splendid record of sixteen wins, six draws and only one loss. He made his moves with wonderful rapidity, disposing of all the games in exactly four hours. It is tinfortunate that tlie distinction of winning against the expert cannot be claimed by any single individual. The game lost by Mieses was commenced by Capt. Hill and was linished by Mundelle, the former not feeling able to stand tiie strain of a long sitting. The captain had captured a pawn and had a good position when lr. relinquished the name- Credit is therefore due to both players.

LEXINGTON. Ky, January 25.?It was announced here late tonight that the report originating in the east that John K. Madden of this city will race his horses in Europa is untrue. Madden engaged quarters for Thomas Hitchcock, who will take a lot of "jumpers" across, and this caused the report. Madden's string of lifty-threA including Dandelion and Salvidere, is 'at Benning track at Washington and will race there iu charge of Trainer Patterson. ? I CHAPULTEPEC WINS . THE FEATURE EVENT (Continued on Second Page.) the sun broke through a rift in the clouds before the horses went to the post in the big stukf\ The story of the race is easily to d. Ilildreth's colors were the first in motion. Dugan shot Montgomery to the front and made every post a winning one. The son of Pcssara fairly reveled in the Koing. and carried his impost of 1-8 pounds as if it were a feather. Clamor was shut off almost as the horses left the barrier, dropping back to eleventh position in a long iieid. t'iantor trailed his fitld untU the three-quarters pole had been passed. Then Miller began to pick up the leaders. In an incredibly short time Clamor shot into second position and challenged Montgomery in ihe stretch. The effort, however, was too much.

I'd like to tight Nelson. "I want to knock him out and settle all disputes. He gave me a hard tight at < joldfield. Nelson is an exception. He's a Joj Grim, only lie knows more than Grim. He can't be knocked out with one punch. It's dead easy to hit him on the jaw. I hit him as hard as I know how at Goldli^ld. but even when I dropped him he got up strong. You can't reach his body, hecause he's always covered with his arms and elbows. He's so slow that the can't 1 hit a clever boxer himself. I always had 1 plenty of time to block or step aside when i I saw his punches start. But he's a wonder at taking it. I beat him up as hard ?as I knew how for eleven rounds. Then I said to myself: 'This fellow can't be ' knocked out in a hurry. I guess I'll have : to do something else or I'll wihip myself I hitting him.' How He Whipped Nelson. "You know wearing yourself out punching a fellow like Nelson is just as bad as getting a lot of punishment. When you're tired you might as well be weak from taking the beating. When you're tired you're all in anyway, even if you haven't been hit. So 1 began making Nelson do all the work. I'd take a step and make him take three or four. He was always coming in. Then in the elinohes I'd let him push me around while I rested. He has all sorts of dirty tricks. He tixed his hair tip some way so it pricked and cut like wire. In every clinch he dropped his head against my neck and chest and rubbed his head around. My chest was raw and bleeding, and every time 'lie used his head it hurt like being scraped with sandpaper. He was always lighting foul. Siler told me after the fight that Nelson fouled mo at least tifty times, hut that he saw I wasn't in danger, and lie Ir?t it go. because the thought I'd rather win with a knockout than have it stopped. "After the eleventh round I stalled and took my time. In the sixteenth I hit Nelson on the h?ad and brok> a bone in my right hand. It hurt so 1 couldn't us ? it. I bent over and rubbed my knee, and b gan to limp, so he'd think it was my ]? g that was hurt. In my corner my s < onds worked on my leg and I didn't ev n let them know my hand was gone. I didn't hit a blow with It until the twenty-seventh? : just kept jabbing Nelson away. Then I | walloped him w ith th<? right. The pa hi ; was getting dull. i "I played N''Icon's own game and settled down to wearing him out. At last, in the forty-lirst round, 1 saw that he was I all in. One eye was closed tight and lie ' had to turn his head to sec me. I heard ! afterward he told Nolan in his corn -r j that he couldn't stand it any longer and j Nolan told him to foul me. Ho came out I and clinched. He hit at my stomach, pulled his hand back and hit "lower. I saw what he was trying to do. and I said. 'What do you mean?' and just then he landed tih? foul blow and 1 went down, i I'll tight Nelson again any time." EMPIRE CITY DATES. President Butler Satisfied With the Allotment. NEW YORK. January 2.1.?The stewards of t he Jockey flub and those in cou| trol of the various racing associations in this state can be congratulated for their handling of the vexed question of an equitable allotment of dates for the eom, :ng season. In order to give proper recognition to the Empire City Racing Association. which is now within the fold, the other associations were forced to make some concessions, and "this was done in a spirit of fairness which reflects credit on all concerned. The best interests of the sport have been conserved and harmony exists where a year ago there was much friction and discoid. James Rutler. president of the Empire City Racing Association, and his attorney.Jas. Russell Soley.m .de a long and determined light for recognition which was opposed by the state rac.ng commission and the Jockey Club, for reasons which appeared sound to them. Once ithe question was settled, however, the hatchet was buried,, and the sport will be the better for it. It would be hard to imagine a better trrangemeiit of dat s with o many interests to be considered Mr T'.utler has expressed himself as entirely satisfied. He gets fifteen days in August, ot which five are clear, and the meeting it Yonk is w II begin after a short let-lip of about two weeks, which is long enough to win t afresh the appetites of those who may have grown "tra< k sore." The rest of the dates come in October, at a tune win n the inelosure in Westchester county should be the most attractive of all the year. Those who enjoy the change of a r and scene at Saratoga will not flock back when the Empire <" ty meeting begins, but. even if the majority shou.d, interest in the sport up the state is keen enough to make the meeting there pay without all the regulais from New York. Th's was proved last year when Yonkers raced in conflict for seventeen days. Pennsy Defeats Yale. I'll 11 ADEld'HlA. Pa., January lie.?
