NEWS AND VIEWS OF SPORTS AMERICAN ATHLETES IN ENGLANDSLUMP OF THE NEW-YORK NINENOTES AND COMMENTS. There was an astonishing turnout of aristocratic "witnesses the othc-r day at the tr'.al of "Jack" Roberts. puKiliPt, and A. E. Bettlnson. manager of National Sporting Club, of London, for causing the death of "Billy" Smith, of thts city, who was killed In a boxing match with Roberts. Among those m~ho wtp Fubpoenaed In behalf of the club were the Earl of I^onsdale, Field Marshal Wolseley, the Earl of Cottenhani. the Earl of Kingston. Lord Conyngham. Lord Savlle. Admiral Montagu, Sir Claude de Cresplpny, Sir Oswald Moseley. Colonel G. M. Fox. Captain J. F. Gastre'.l, Captain Uarnard. Captain ("avendish. Captain J. H. K. Bailey and Lieutenant D. S. Xlcol. After tho testimony had been taken the presiding Judge remarked that he had always advocated the use of the fists In preference to knives and pistols, and be asked the Jury tn be careful before they condemned a sport so popuiar and beneficial as boxing. The ¦ onMdered that Smith's death was the result FREDERICK R FORTMETKR. Secretary National Association of Amateur Oarsmen. of an accident, and that boxing, as conducted at the National Sportlnsr Club, was perfectly f.ilr and legal. After deliberating three minutes the jury came to the same conclusion, and a verdict of not f • y was returned. It Is suspected that some of England's lawmakers take as much Interest in the Parliamentary golf matches as they do In the more serious bus! ness of Parliarr.en;. It is intfrrstinir to read, for example, that in the second round of the Parliamentary Handicap H J. V. Eadeley, clerk. House of Lords (handicap 6). beat A. W. Sosrr.*-. M. P. C by 2 hclcs up and Ito play. The training methods of the American track and field athletes who have recently been winning ¦ honors In England have amazed and. jin S some case?, amused the British. Says "The Sportsman": . It lias been customary to put down a great share •of Ike American successes ovc-r here to their systematic training: but, while admitting tlmi they may be more thorough in their preparation, there Is no gainsaying the fact that thoso we have with ¦us now are very fine natural athletes. • The reliauo of masseurs without which the Americans are popularly supposed never to travel ere not to be found in the neighborhood of Stamford Bridge; but our transatlantic cousins are nevertheless great believers in muscle' kneading. This, however, they are not above doing for one another, a proceeding which is against the English canons of training. While, too, in this country opinions on the subject of smoking in general are divided, the cigarette is strictly tabooed. Cigarette smoking has doubtless different effects on different constitutions. I can cail to mind at least one of ' our own champions who was an inveterate cigarette smoker, but the average runner would as soon think of Hunting up a quarter of an hour before he .vra? to make an attack on record as he would of eating a beefsteak. Kraenzlein and Baxter, however, pass the time while waiting in the dressing room for their events in the company of Mv Lady Klcotine. The number of cigarettes which th.-» first named disposed of between his racing and Jumping on Saturday caused no little astonishment among the other competitors. _, It Is safe to say that while Kraenzlein was winning victories for Pennsylvania as an undergraduate of that university he never Fmoked any great number of cigarettes while in training, and his performances in that line which seem so to have "flabbergasted" the British will equally astonish American trainers. .To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: In your report of the game played recently between Brooklyn and Kings County you give the victory to Kings County in the first innings. This, I beg to say, cannot be so decided in an all day Came, unless the captains of the competing teams £0 decide. When both pldes go In for a second innings, and there is not time to complete them, the match Is decided a draw, and I beg you will in your next issue so report, or. if not. give your reason therefor or publish the consensus of opinion on the eubject. Hundreds of cricketers are looking to you to lead the reports and decisions on this glorious game, and we beg to thank you for your clear reports and the space you devote to It. R. BOO.COCK. M. D. Xo. 1.038 Flatbush-ave., Brooklyn. . Our correspondent is Incorrect In the statement that a one day match Is not decided on the first Innings if. there la not sufficient time in which to finish the second Inning?. The rules are clear on the subject, and state that "the match, unless played out. shall be deeded by the first Innings." The result of the game alluded to was therefore correctly given as a win for Kings County. ralnful slump of the New-York baseball team '. ¦ •• West might have 6een expected by those who remembered the poor record made by the home BAN JOHXSO?r.

Still this Oriole* are too erratic to suit their friends. 1 - "Ban" Johnson, the president cf . the new league, has handled the affairs of the organization In good shape. Johnson was once a reporter in Cincinnati, but he has been- a close student of baseball for many years. There was an unusually large turnout of wheelmen on the roads yesterday, both in this borough and In Brooklyn. When riding- against "the breeze, which was particularly strong at times, the rider found the heat nicely tempered. When riding with the wind the exertion was nothing, but the nun br-at down upon the back of the thinly clad rider with considerable force. The routes to the seashore were the popular ones yesterday, and the cycle paths in Brooklyn were, as usual, thronged all day and far Into the night. The "scorchers"- were not numerous, for which the sensible riders were duly thankful. The active members of the various boating clubs with houses on the Harlem River are BBKn disturbed at this time. The city hns men at work dredging the river, and several of the boathouses will have to be removed at once. The houses of the Metropolitan and Bohemian boat clubs will b<- removed to-day and to-morrow, and the IlBrl«m club will try to get Its possessions removed by Wednesday All of the boathouneg nt tho Thlnlave bridge at the head of I^-xington-nve. will have to be moved. The Wyanciottc and Crescent clubs are situated nearer the Fourth-aye. bridge, and the members say that they have rights WOKO they will not abandon unless compelled to move by the' courts. Frederick R. Fortmeyer, of this city, who has Just been re-elected secretary of the National Association of Amateur Oarsmen. Is one of the bet known officials In rowing circles in this country. While Fortmeyer la Interested in all sports, rowing is his hobby, and he Is probably the best posted authority on water sports hereabouts. Exciting brushes were the order of the day on the Brooklyn Speedway yesterday. "Ed" Joyce's Smith, considered by many to be the fastest pueer on the Speedway, was beaten yesterday for the first time this year by \V. E. Warner's Claybourne in twe straight heuts. Measra. Thompson. AJfer and McKee came over from Stater Island with the ; r Caat road horses. The Brooklyn Speedway is popular with the Stnten Island owner?: who Keem to prefer it to the speedway in this borough. RENDEZVOUS AT GLEN COVE NEW-YORK YACHT CLUB CRUISE TO BEGIN TO-DAY— MANY VESSELS TO TAKE PART. Officials of the New-York Yacht Club said yesterday that in point of numbers to-day's gathering of pleasure vessels would probably be the largeat that ever went off on the annual cruise. The rendezvous at Glen Cove Is called a fortnight earlier this year. This was owing at first to the fact that the America's Cup races were fixed for August 23. and when the date was postponed to September 20. after the Shamrock accident, It was found that too many yachtsmen had made their arrangements for July 22 to allow any alteration. There will be a meeting of the captains on the flag-shjp Corona at 11 a. m., when the final arrangements In regard to the cruise programme, will be settled. The race to-day will be to a finish off Huntington Harbor, and the hour for the start will be settled at the 11 a. m. meeting. The fleet will sail to Morris Cove early to-morrow, on signal from tho flagship. Cruisers will then take their most direct course for the Cove, while the races will go to the starting line at Eaton's Point buoy and there get their send-ofr for the twenty-elght-mlle race to Luddlngton Rock. On Wednesday the starting line for the racers will be off the breakwater at Morris Cove, and the run will be to the buoy off Sarah's Ledge, a course of thirty-nine mller. leaving the Bartlett Reef light to port. There will be dances and receptions for the yachtsmen and illuminations at New-London. The fleet will not be as large to-day as It subsequently will be at Newport, the yachts from Eastern waters generally preferring to meet the fleet at Newport, which is a sort of halfway house, for the large Boston contingent. The fleet* will therefore be divided into two chief lists, tr.9 racers and crullers. The latter list subdivides Indefinitely, being composed of all kinds of vessels, under steam or sail, or both. Th« racers are led off by the two chief vessels of the year, the Constitution and the Columbia. Both these vessels have arrived at Glen Cove, and nearly a hundred other vessels came straggling In one by one yesterday!

MORE TRIAL RACES POSSIBLE,. THE CONSTITUTION AND THE COLUMBIA MAY MEET AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER. It was said yesterday that In all probability special races would be arranged between the Columbia and the Constitution to take place off Newport early in September. After the first series at Newport early this month It was thought that formal trial contests for the selection of the Cup defender might be dispensed vrlth, the- committee having a sufficient basin for judgment without them. It is now understood, however, that the trials will be held. The dates havo not yet been set. BASEBALL. NEW-YOP.K LOSES FIFTH CONSECUTIVE GAME TO TAILEKDSRB AT CHICAGO. THE RECORDS. NATIONAL.

Vanderbilt, jr.'s, new Gorman Meropdes automobile has reached Newport, and is one of the greatest surprise? of thf> season in its line. The accepted impression had been that a machine o| the hijeh speed that this one is supposed to possess must necessarily ho a much larger and heavier one than that which has been de«=ignited thf> White Ghost, and which has a speed of rnoro than fifty miles an hour. The new ninchioe, however, is much smaller, ll^ht-r and more compactly built. It is a long, low affair, with the mechanism projecting on a platform immedintely in front of the operator. All the working parts are incased in an iron box, and th- only parts exposed to view are the levers which operate it and the wheel by which It is steered, except a row of solf-oiilng cups, which nr»> imrvjodiatrly In front of the operator. The machine ran be a.ljupted fur either two or four persons. The driving shafts extend under the floor "f the automobile, and the machine is propelled by means of heavy steol sprocket chains connected with the rear wheels. The reMde, W hick, in fact, is a diminutive locomotive, is painted a dark red, the seats belnjj upholstered In yellow leather. The .«p."-d of the machine Is approximately seventy miles an hour, and tho chauffeur is auth irlty for the statement that the machine has made a kilometre in thirty-two seoonds. The same rate of nj-eed kept up for one hour would cover a distance a trifle over seventy miles. Few opportunities will be offered in Newport for speeding the vehicle, as a recent ordinance Till: \i;\v GERMAN MERCBDEB. passed by the City Council limits the rate to six miles an hour. AT ST.

FIRST DE&}W: : FEAT' IN A PURSUIT RACE. . .The English champion bicycle rider, now In this country,-: Thomas Jefferson Gascoyne. was the vie-. yesterday cf a peculiar series' of Incidents. On; Saturday, at Boston, he t<-ok part in the national circuit' 'championships,, and had the honor of twice' beating" "Ma lor". ; Taylor.' the colored International champion. Hurrying on to Vallsburg,' where he was engaged .to ride yesterday. Gascoyne reached the track In time to don his racing suit and take part In the. races. He made a capital ride in the half mile handicap 'for professionals, defeating John Bedell,' of Lynbrook,- Long Island, the amateur of the Kings County Wheelman, who turned professional yesterday. • [-J-. '\ i. > -V -_\>. -¦¦/, -.>*'.'' ';-;¦. Gascoyne was e.itered in an Australian pursuit race against W. S. Fenn, and the Englishman had scarcely time to catch his breath before he jumped on his-, machine to Indulge In this, the moat severe, test of a wheelman's stamina- and speed. Some of the. spectators resented this treatment, saying that Gascoyne should have had time to rest a little before starting In this race. Gascoyne was clearly not himself, and Fenn defeated the Englishman after golnc a -little .over three miles. Pursuit racing Is Gascoyne's forte, and he has won every' race of this sort In which he has started heretofore on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. He did not grumble,' however, accepting his defeat gracefully. He Is 'anxious for another .match with Fenn, and is confident that he will be able to turn the tables on the Waterbury rider. The majority-of the four thousand spectators were glad to see. the- American win. but those who realized the capacity of the human being thought that too much was asked of '.he Englishman, who has shown pluck . and per -(intene'e in every contest -In which ho has competed In this country. The lending professionals,' as already published In this paper, refused to. Tide at the Vallsburg track yesterday. • Neither Cooper, McFarland, Fisher. Taylor, Kramer or any of the men considered In the first class. were present. The racing men argue, as already printed, that the attendance at the Vallsburg track has been so generous that the management should make, the purses as large as those offered .it the other meets. The management at Vallsburg does not appear to be disturbed at the action of the professional. riders, and predicts that the riders will return to the track In good season. in the professional races yesterday W. A. Rutz captured the five mile handicap, with Stevens second and Newklrk third. M. L. Hurley, called "Ginger" Hurley by his friends, as usual ran away with the amateur contests, winning both the open and the two mile handicap.' Summaries: Half ml!* (professional)— Won by T. .1.

Sporting goods houses that make a specialty 8 dealing In golf clubs report an unusually heavy .5 mand for these implements in the last week, 7 a*" cording to the manager of one of the concerns th" principal purchasers are people who are anxious .* obtain a. set for some vacation trip and who feaa comparatively little as to what clubs they ehotiH buy. -•-. ¦-.•-¦¦', ' ou!l ' "About the first Question asked," 'said he "\ % 'What clubs do I need and what Is considered a full set?" As a general thing we suggest a brass!*' cleek. mashle, putter and driver, for a beginner ea * get along nicely with four or five clubs, and such a set Is not expensive." It I 3 not Always the case, however, that a begin, ncr finds a salesman who can advise him proper*. The mistake usually made by those who take as the game for the first time is to attempt to leara the use of too many clubs at once. If the o'utflt Is bought without consulting some one who knows the salesman is apt to fill in with clubs that a novice has no business with. Indeed, it Is better tor him to start with as few as possible until a* becomes accustomed to their use and can try others A good selection would be a brassle, cleek and mashle, with possibly a driver. The latter is not always necessary at first, for the brassie will fl, very well in learning the swing and stance, and la better able to withstand the hard usage a novice i? sure to give. The putter may also be discarded for a time. if economy Is an object, and the cteak used Instead. "¦•:":¦ ¦ As a general thing the man who enters a golj store Is amazed at the variety and complexity of the implements offered for sale, and unless the limits of his pocket restrain him he is apt to purchase recklessly and ignorantly of what he does not reed. To allow a beginner to play over a course with all the clubs an expert would employ Is to handicap him at the very outset. Armed with his outfit he has a try with every club he has bought, not knowing why he uses It or what the result of his stroke Is to be. The natural consequence Is a ragged and incomplete style, coupled with habits of form that must all be unlearned later. It Is better to start with too few clubs than never to learn the correct use of any. The clubs mentioned will teach him all that Is necessary for several month.3. 3nd ¦when more proficiency Is acquired others may be added. Nothing bars a man's progress so much as the constant changing from one club to another. The copt of these clubs varies according* to make and finish, from $1 to 13. The golf balls are perhaps the largest Item of expense to the beginner, as he usually hacks them badly at the start. The better makes come at three for $1. but there are cheaper kinds, plenty good enough to practise with, for 8 a dozen. Then there Is the Item for caddies, which also enters largely Into ihe cost of the game. At most courses boys receive about 30 cents a round, although in open tournaments the charge is SI a day. Club repairing must also be Included, although, of course, this becomes less as the player becomes more skilful. Taken altogether, however, the) expense of a moderate Indulgence in the game !¦» not heavy. If the question of drinks and meals, subscriptions for prizes, and entry fees for tournaments is to be counted in. the cost becomes impossible to estimate, for no two men spend alike. The best thing that can be said la that golf Is an elastic . pastime that absorbs money according to one's ability to spend it. As regards the privileges of a links, most summer hotels have their own courses where vlsl:or=» may play on the payment of a small fee by the day or week. Many of the Independent clubs also provide for "season subscribers" ¦who are allowed to use the course by joining this special class and paying the subscription fee, which usually ranges from $10 to $25. according to the facilities offered. The customary rule at all clubs Is that a man may use the course on proper Introduction by a member and the payment cf $1 per day. NOTES OF THE LIXK& The midweek list of local matches Includes aattlng In the way of open tournaments, but with dob handicaps, putting matches and team, play therwill be plenty ff interesting games on link* -• - New- York. Seabrlght. Deal Beach and Hollywood are at the height of their season, and all will be crowded with prize play competitions. On Thursday the wcraen of the Montclalr Golf Club will hold another match for the Governor's Cup, whi'.e at ApawamU on the same day a novel match Is promised between teams composed of men and women, respectively. The scoring ia to be done under the "three point" system. For August the Apawamts club has arranged a series of five tournaments for women, and among the prize glTers are Mrs. T. H. Dtmond. Mrs. J. A. Gwynne. .Mrs. J. F. Park and Mrs. J. J. Rlker. On Saturday the Wee Burn golf team Is to niMt a team from the Brooklawn Country Club, at Noroton. Conn., while at the Innls Arden <»olf Club of Sound Beach the final rouniis for the July cups are to be decided. The protest which followed the use of the Haskell ball by Miss Otnevleve Hecker In the driving contest at Nassau may result in some fresh legislation at the next meeting of the Women's Metropolitan Golf Association. I: is the same trouble that brought about such stringent rules ag-iirist th» tco lively baseball years ago. The Ha*kell Is aaid to have a smali India rubber ball at Its core, whloh lends It tremendous bounding power and makes It obviously unfit for a test of long driYin? ability. In other words, the contestant who uses a Haskell is likely to have an unfair advantage over those who do not use it. and. while no one mear.s to Imply that Miss Hecker attempted undue means. •::"ed proper that her performance should be repeated with another make. To obviate a repetition of such occurrences the association can hardly refuse to define the styles of ba'.ls that will have official sanction, and this step will undoubtedly be taken before the next championship is helc. "For ordinary players it Is a great assistance to have at their command one special stroke— say a half shot with mashie— with which they are fairly certain of covering consistently the same extent ot ground." said a professional who has had consfJ* erable experience in teaching the game the other day. "It facilitates Judging distances. Taking the half shot with his mashie as a standard, the player can estimate whether the distance to the hole be greater or less, and gauges the strength accordingly. Hut th« beginner should not trust to match play to acquire this stroke. Let him have a vilet practice now and then, when the links are not crowded, and with a mashie and a half dozen balls play each of them from about the same distance on the green. When he can lay them all on the green in six consecutive strokes he has already accomplished much, and will afterward play his matches with neatly increased confidence and success. Accuracy In approaching Is longer in being acquired, and demands more constant and Intelligent practice than any other part of golf, and this sugg—Mo« should at least b« worth a trial. August will be a busy month at the- Oakland links. On the first Saturday of the month the Oakland team is to play the Innls Arden team at Sound Beach, and on August 17 It will meet the Flushing team at Flushing.
