(Special to the Eagle.) Philadelphia, Pa., July 29 There is more la the recent upheaval in the American League than appears upon the surface! The charge made by President Ban Johnson to the effect that Manager McGraw of the Baltlmores had turned traitor and intended to sell out to the National League is only an incident. It serves, however, to indicate that the American League is on the verge of disintegration. - The new league may last the season out, but, if it does, the promoters will be compelled to delve deeply into the pockets to make iip the deficit. That the National League has tampered with McGraw is believed absolutely by the American League promoters. It is scoffed at by those connected with the older organization, however, who claim they already have their rivals on the hip and do not need any bribing methods to force the opposition to the wall. Public sentiment has done this for them, they say, the patronage all along the line being notoriously small. Detroit alone has made money, the rest of the cities playing at a loss. Attendance figures have been padded in Chicago, it is asserted on good authority, And similar charges are made in other cities. Cleveland and Milwaukee have been drawing 200 people of late, Baltimore and Washington less than one thousand, and Chicago about 1,500. Boston has done better, but its expensive team places it on a par with the others so far as actual money making is concerned. , The Philadelphia Athletics, which threatened to outdraw the Phillies earlier in the season, have been compelled to play second fiddle since the leaguers braced up with Jennings at the helm. The enormous crowd of Saturday, it is said, sounded the death knell of the Athletics and the Philadelphia fans are believed to have veered around entirely. Despite all this, the American .'Leaguers, on paper,, are still full of fight. If it comes to a show - down, they can get along without McGraw,; who is now known as the Aaron Burr of bnBe ball. His. present associates believe that he has turned traitor. They base their belief on two counts. The first is that he approached two American League magnates and tried to Influence them. Johnson makes this charge. The other charge is that McGraw sold out the American Association two years ago, when Anson was elected president, . and, if he did such a thing once, he would do it again. An official of the American League! who resides in this city, while talking over the situation with the Eagle correspondent, made the assertion that the organization would spring a move next fall that would open the eyes of the National League magnates. What the intended move was the Eagle informant would not say. He intimated, however, that it would be a crusher. The McGraw incident has again opened the way to serious discussion as to what the National League will do when the ten years' agreement expires next fall. That there is to be a severe shaking up is agreed upon all sides. The complete surrender of the American League and a return to the twelve club circuit is suggested, . but the latter will never again obtain. Even with eight clubs there are at least two cities which do not pay expenses and are supported by the others. These are Chicago and Cincinnati, while Brooklyn has not come up to expectations. Under these circumstances, the magnates will not add four more losing towns to tho heavy weight. Tho move that finds the most credence throughout the circuit Is that Brooklyn will be dropped and Washington taken in instead. And this in the face of repeated denials by Hani on and Ebbets. It is held' that Freedman has assorted that Brooklyn must go and his edicts have come to be looked upon as law. The Brooklyn owners assert that a club in Brooklyn is necessary to tho welfare of the league and expect to prove this by the crowds which will turn out to see the remaining games with New York. A splendid start was made last Wednesday, when five thousand people attended the game at Washington Park. If Freodman can bo impressed with the importance of the rivalry existing between Brooklyn'and New York all will be plain sailing. Otherwise some interesting changes are mapped out. The Champions, according to the prophets, are to go to Washington. Hart of the Chicagos is to be president of the league and Hanlon is to be put in charge of the Remnants. If the American League quits, Manning of the Washingtons or McGraw of the Baltlmores Is to receive the Brooklyn territory ar an Eastern League franchise. These plans, in the main, are plausible, but Sere "are two arguments against some of details. Hanlon has stated emphatically that he will. hot go West, and the National League will have no more of McGraw under any. circumstances. The latter sentiment is fixed. The pugnacious little player has been :i thorn in the side of the magnates for the past three years and they intimated that they were well rid of him when he jumped to the American League. Hanlon may take charge of the Washing - tons and ho may be induced to take hold of the New Yorka. This providing Brooklyn Is dropped. That Hanlon will retire is hardly probable, as he is of such a temperament that to quit base ball would mean a severe blow to him and the national game as well. Beside tho mere incidental of $10,000 a year is a loadstone which will keep him busy for several seasons to come. The name of John T. Brush is also mentioned for the presidency of tho National League in place of N. C. Young. It is not likely, however, that the Cincinnati magnate will be a candidate. He is not strong enough physically to undergo the severe strain. Beside, his interests in the Cincinnati Club will disqualify him. That Brush - intends to place a team in the field next year which will cope with the others, is evidenced by the expensive grand stand being erected in Cincinnati. The grand stand in question is expected to withstand the ravages of time and the elements. It is cemented throughout, the floor, front and sides being of this material, and the exponse is great enough to exclude any would be purchaser. Freedman has declared that Young must go and the Veteran, from present indications, Villr have no other recourse. Local Willow Wielders Making a Strong Bid for League - Honors. STILL TIED WITH CHAMPIONS. Much Depends on the Brooklyn - Knickerbocker Match. This "Week Griffith Leads Batsmen. It was a close shave for the Brooklyn Cricket Club in its league match with the Nelson Lodge team on Saturday, and the margin of one run, by which the victory was won, was altogether too narrow for comfort. As one of the club'B adherents put it, however, "All's well that ends well," and the tie for first place with the Knickerbocker champions still holds good, both the leaders remaining with a clean Tecord as regards defeats. Incidentally the match served to illustrate the value and absolute necessity of keeping a bowling analysis, for, without it, the discrepancy of two runs in the totals of the two scorebooks could not have been accounted for and the clubs would have had the liveliest kind of a time settling the dispute. The showing made by the Manhattans against the Knickerbockers was deplorable. Even against such bowlers as the champions possess, it is quite unintellibible how tho side could have been retired for 29 runs. The absence of Prendergast made a big difference, but does not account for the complete failure of the local men. In short, it was one of those strange surprises for which the game of cricket is noted, and it will be quite in order for the Manhattans to turn the tables when they visit Bayonne three weeks hence. The real tug of war is down for next Saturday, when the Brooklyns and Knickerbockers will meet for the first time on the champions' grounds. The state of affairs in the New York and Prospect Park Cricket Association's series was not disturbed by the contests of Saturday.

There are grave rumors floating about concerning the condition of Prince of Melbourne, the winner of the Brighton Cup, who, three hours before tho running of the race on Saturday, was 60ld by James R. Beard to Fred Walbaum, the bookmaker, for J20.500. It was said yesterday that the colt was in very bad shape and that in all probability he would never race again. The trouble rests in the fore legs, which have been under suspicion for some time, although the trainer of the Prince, Doc Kyle, has, by the use of all the arte known to the veterinary, kept that fact from being known. Last year, It will be rememberd. Prince of Melbourne was retired for the year in the middle of the mid - summer racing season and at that time It was said that he had gone lame and had in all probability broken down. The last appearance of the Prince last season was on July 21, at the Brighton Beach track, when he won the Seagate stakes, defeating David Garrick, Brigadier, Motley and Lew Kraft. This season, Prince 0f Melbourne was raced, when far from being on edge, on two occasions, but regained his 3 year old form, after being beaten in tho Advance stakes, run at Sheepshead Bay, and In the Brighton handicap, which, was decided on the first day of the present meeting at the Brighton course. "Willie Shaw, the jockey, who rode Prince of Melbourne in the Brighton Cup, on Saturday, stated last night that he thought tho horse would break down under him before the finish was reached and that the horse was willing to stop at the head of the stretch the last time around and that go fearful was he (Shaw) of the horse doing this that he rode him out. Shaw also says that the Prince acted ar if he was on the verge of breaKing aown. It was also said yesterday that the horse had not been on the track for three days previous to Saturday and that he had been standing in tubs filled with ice since Tuesday, this treatment being necessary in order to reduce the inflammation which had developed in nis legs after his fast trial. Rfifora the horse was brought up for sale William Easton, the auctioneer, read from a signed affidavit, furnished by Dr. William K. SheDDard. in which that veterinary stated that, after making an examination of the horse, he had found him all right witn tne exception of a growth on one of his fore legs, caused by "striking." There was no guarantee made that the colt was sound, and, if he does not race again, Mr. Walbaum's purchase is likely to be an expensive one, for he will be useless, outside of stud purposes, and his value as a sire is entirely problematical. As Mr. Walbaum purchased Prince of Melbourne sclely with the idea of racing him, and depended on winning him out in stakes and in betting on him, he may repent of his bargain and take some steps toward tho recovery of his money. The stake of Saturday was worth close to $6,000, but. if the horse cannot be gotten ready to race again, Walbaum is not likely to stand idly by and lose the 14,500 difference which exists between the price paid for him and the amount won on Saturday in the Brighton Cup. Doc Kyle, who was the trainer of the Prince of Melbourne, when the aorse belonged to the Beard stable, denies all knowledge of the horse breaking dowi.. He admits, however, that the Prince was badly cut about the heels during the race for the Brighton Cup, on Saturday. The Prince was walked over to the Gravesend track, where Walbaum stables the horse, to the stable of John Hynes, his trainer, and the horse was all right, apparently, on Saturday night, save that his heels were badly cracked. No one at the Gravesend track, however, has seen the horse out of his stable since the race. CHAMPIONS WILL TRY TO BEAT QUAKERS TO DAY. (Special to the Eagle.) Philadelphia, Pa., July 29 To - day the Champions will finish up what can be looked upon as nothing else but a disastrous series. Win or lose, they will have those two defeats In one day staring them in the face a blot that it will take a long streak of victories to eradicate. Perhaps, on their own grounds, beginning to - morrow, they may be able to turn the tables on the Quakers. If Donovan and Newton pitch as well at home as they did here Saturday, the deed can be done. Willie Keeler is always prepared for anything that comes along. Yesterday a Philadelphia fan approached him and Inquired what was the principal attribute of a successful batter. "Well, you see," said Willie, "there are seven fielders in front of you, all of them placed so that they are in a position to pounce upon all kinds of drives, liners or grounders. The principal thing to do is to hit 'em where they ain't." Which, in plain English, means that the successful batter hits the ball where the fielders cannot reach It. Tom McCreery was so improved in health this morning that he took part in the practice. He will probably cover center field to - day. WHEELING. Tho cycling stars are still fighting shy of Vailsburg on account of the small purses which the management puts up. The attendance at the Sunday meets for the last two weeks has shown the effect of the desertion of the leading "pros." Despite the report that 4,000 people attended the races yesterday there were no more than half that number on the grounds. The management announces that by next Sunday the trouble will be. smoothed over and the leading cash riders will be seen sprinting for the usual purses. The meet which was to have taken place at the old Guttenberg track yesterday did not materialize on account of the lack of attendance. Racing men generally did not expect to see the new venture pan out right and no surprise was expressed when tho meet fell through. William A. Brady is to run a big race meet at Asbury Park. The meet will be one of the circuit dates and is to take place on August 8. Asbury Park has ever been a strong cycle racing center and this year will probably be no exception. Jimmy Michael finally managed to win a race yesterday, beating Eddie McDufile, who has been Idle (or several months. McDuftlc displayed none of his old time speed and the Welsh RarebU had a mile the best of it when the twenty miles were completed. THE MODERN PERIL. Mrs. Swellman Oh, I'm so glad you dropped in.

Philadelphia Record. HARRY ELKES DOUGLAS WILL GOLF AT HOLLYWOOD, M. G. A. Champion Among the Amateurs Who Will Play in Open Tourney. WATSON AND KNAPPALS0 ENTER Professional Group Will Include Anderson, Low, Smith, Bell and a Dozen Other Cracks. Once more, as at Westbrook, Findlay S. Douglas has entered his name for the allcomers golf tourney, to be held at Hollywood on Friday and Saturday of this week. It has been stated that only tho entry of Walter J. Travis or Findlay Douglas in their present form is needed to put any of these mixed professional and amateur meetings on a par with the annual open championship that is, an entry that shall bo made good by the appearance of the player. Douglas entered at Westbrook. but de clared himself out at the last moment. The Westbrook amateurs, it is true, gave grand accounts of themselves, Louis Livingston, jr., and R. C. Watson, jr., playing the open champion to a tie. .What the golf cranks undoubtedly want, however, is to see one of the "Big Two" amateurs, who at present hold the rank and file of the others safe, pitted against the professional players of the first rani;. Neither Travis nor Douglas has taken part in an open championship for two years, the last time having been in 181)9, at Baltimore, where Travis withdrew. With Travis abroad Douglas is the amateur who can make the Hollywood tourney extremely interesting. The recent Westbrook tourney brought out the best amateur showing ever made in a professional meeting and R. C. Watson, jr., who tied Anderson there for fourth prize, 1b among the entries at Hollywood. E. S. Knapp, another strong Westhook player; F. W. Menzies, G. B. Armstrong, A. T. Dwight, Mortinier M. Singer, J. G. Bates, C. H. Murphy, R. L. Rodneld, E. G. Kent, A. T. Stern and E. H. Knight are also named to start. The professional field includes, beside Willie Anderson, the open champion; Georgo Low, Alexander Findlay, John Shippen, Willie Norton, Alexander Patrick, who was second at Westhook; Nipper Campbell, Isaac Mathie. David Hunter, Willie Tucker, David Brown, an ex - open champion of Groat Britain; A. G. Griffiths, Wlllio Dunn. W. H. Way, John Reid, James G. Campbell and others less well known. From the West will come Willie Smith, tho open champion of 18!)fi; David Bell and probably Auchterlonio and the Foulis boys. Smith can be looked to for a desperate effort to retrieve the honors which he lost at Chicago in 1900 and failed to regain at Myopia in 1901. The list is not yet elosed. Those above named are the early birds and some of them are already at Long Urnnch at practice for the affair, the course now. being open to all competitors. LIVELY GOLFING ON R0CKVILLE COURSE. (Special to the Eagle.) Rockville Center, L. I.. July 20 Tho golf links of the Rockville Centre Country Club en Saturday afternoon bore their liveliest aspect of the season. There was a handicap game bet - ween ten of the members, au lS - hole women's match game, two medal plays between women members and a 0 - hole contest between the club's insiraetor, Maurice J. McCarthy and Harold Md'arty. The handicap play was for prizes for best gross and net scores, the prizes being tho entrance fees of two gnlf halls each. G. Byron Latimer of this village won both. An eighteen inch hole match, between Miss Combs and Miss Milson. was won by Miss Combs by 3 up. Miss Murphy and Miss Cotter contested for honors of a nine hole medal play, and Miss Murphy won by a score of 5fi to her opponent's 58. Harold McCarty tried bis skill in a nine bole match against the club instructor, Maurice J. McCarthy. The instructor was the winner by 2 up and 1 to go.

The Bergen Beach Yacht Club entered upon its racing career yesterday. The start was most auspicious, for the race, open to all recognized clubs on Jamaica Bay, attracted the largest entry of the season. Nineteen boats started in the five classes sloops, open catboats from 18 to 20 feet, open catboats from 1C to 18 feet, cabin cats and sharpies. Visiting yachtsmen won all five first prizes, the Canarsie Yacht Club winning four and the Old Mill the remaining one. Ideal weather favored the yachtsmen. The wind was south by east and was a good one the greater part of tho race, though at the end the wind fell lighter. The course, which was sailed over twice, was starting from an imaginary line drawn between the club dock and a stake boat anchored off shore to a stake beat off the Canarsie dock, thence to main channel, to rod buoy No. 4, to the starting point. The first leg was a run, the second a broad reach, with booms to port, the third a beat to windward and the last a reach' with booms to starboard. At the start tho cabin cat Irene was first over the line, followed by Hattle E., Madeline. Chief. Mignonette and Chelsea, all cabin cats but Chief and Chelsea, which made up the sloop class. The other classes got away In quick order. The yachts held their position until the beat to windward began. Then Tarn O'Shau - ter, in the open catboat class, IS to 20 feet, passed the sloops Chiefs and Chelsea and crept up on the cabin catboats. Madeline and Mignonette in the latter class made a pretty contest of it from the breakwater to the home mark, neither gaining any advantage in the windward work. In the reach Mignonette got to windward and forged ahead half a length. On the second round the wind died out considerably. Turn O'Shanter on the run to the first mark gained on the cabin catboats and took the lead, finishing before the Irene by one minute. It was a very close race. In the cabin eat class Irene won. In tho open catboat class, IS to 20 feet. Tam O'Shanter was the winner. In the open catboat class. 16 to IS feet, Felice was first. Alert won in the sharpies class and Chelsea in the sloop class. FOURSOME GOLF PLAY ON BAYSWATER LINKS. (Special to the Eagle.) Far Rocltaway. L. I.. July 29 A match play of eighteen holes, men's foursomes, was played on Saturday afternoon and yesterday morning on tho links of the Bayswater Golf Club. Six pairs were entered and a bye was drawn by the Burtis brothers, who will meet C. A. Bordy and F. Furncy in the finals some day during the week. The summary was: C. Jtaiuterhroek and C. W.

At the eighteenth hole the pairs were tied and on the twentieth hole Boody and Gurney won by I up. BBINDLED BULL TERRIERS. Boston Terrier May Be the American Prototype. The Grimsby magistrates the other day showed considerable wisdom when they sentenced a dog thief not only to six months' imprisonment, but mulcted him in the payment of costs amounting to something like 4. The dog which led to the conviction was a collie valued by its owner at something like 10. and it had been dispatched to a dog dealer in Villiers street. Charing Cross, who paid 30 shillings fcr it. The evidence of the latter, whose naiiiii is Harris, in a measure led to the conviction of the thief, Peter Brant. Six months for stealing a dog! And a similar punishment was inflicted on an owner who urged his bull terrier to attack a constable. In this latter case, heard at tho South Western police court on Wednesday, the defendant, described as a rat catcher, was being ejected from a public house when his dog, at its master's orders, seized the constable and bit him so severely that in the witness box he had to be accommodated with :i seat. The obedient dog Is described as a "brindled bull terrior." - Now this is a capital old time variety of the canine race which is gradually being "improved" off the face of the earth, which is a pity. It is not his natttre to bite either a police officer or any other man: he is just a faithful dog, obedient, to his owner ami willing and able to kill rats and other vermin when required. His doca - denee is to be lamented, and, moreover, a real dog lover must, feel sad to see a once popular animal brr.ught into prominence under such untoward eirr - umst nnees. In America the "brindled bull terrier," or at. any rate his prototype, is fashionable under the cononient of thu "Huston terrier." London Field. Sixty Riders Will Compete in the Second Indoor National Circuit Meet. VAN C0TT VERSUS SCHREIBER. Major Taylor and Frank Kramer Should Furnish Good Sport in the "Pro" Events. Major Taylor will be called upon to mako his best efforts this evening, when he faces all the crack cycle riders of America at Madison Square Garden. The event to - night will be the isecond indoor meet of the National Circuit and over sixty riders will compete for money, medals and glory. Tho programme arranged is a long and interesting one. Six big events are down for decision, which arc as follows: Half mile professional circuit championship, one mile handicap and 2:10 class for pro riders and a one mile handicap and five mile lap race for tho amateurs. As a special feature the management has added a match race, best two in three heats, between Pete Van Cott and George Sehreibcr. The match is the outcome of the trouble in which Van Cott wus disqualified by the referee, after winning the one mile amateur handicap. The race was awarded to Sehreiber and many of the spectators were under the impression that Van Cott was wronged. So, in order to show who is really the better man. the race to - night has been arranged. The indications are that the race will bo a fight from start to finish. In the two big professional events Major Taylor. Frank Kramer. Owen Kimble. Tom Cooper, Johnny Fisher, W. S. Fenn, Charley Hadfield, Hardy Downing, Lester Wilson, George Lander, W. A. Rutz, E. C. Hausman and Al Newhouse are among the starters. As all are in good shape, fast and close races can be looked for. The main struggle, however, will simmer down to Major ' Taylor and Frank Kramer. As both of these crack riders are sure to come together in tho final heats, a match race will be tho result. The great race put up by these two flyers at the beach on Saturday ha the public interested and the event to - night promises to be even more exciting, as the high banking of the Garden track will mako the race more thrilling. All of the riders, with the exception of Taylor, have ridden at the Garden thl season, so they will have a slight advantage over him. The race between Nelson and Moran. which was scheduled for this evening, wns declared off yesterday, owing to the sickness of Nelson. DEATH OF MC CREERY A BLOW TO BILLIARDS. Wayman C. McCreery, the well known amateur billiard expert, died at his home, in St. Louis, a few days ago of apoplexy. McCreery was ono of tho greatest cue wielders in the amateur ranks, while at three cushion caroms he was superior to many of the professionals and was regarded as an equal to Jake Schaefer at this style of game. Wayman C. McCreery. The last appearance of McCreery in public In this part of the country was two winters ago. in tho Amateur Athletic Union Class A championship tournament at 14 - Inch balk line. In this tournament, he was beaten by Wilson P. Foss, the present champion. While McCreery was last at the finish of tho series of games played at. the Knickerbocker Athletic Club.

Judging by the exodus of horsemen to Sarar tctta dlirinE the n:it week fhero will hp mncH good racing at the Spa track during the meet ing which tiegins there on Monday next. In past years it has been the custom tb ship horses to the Spa track, and. instead of " racing them, to rest them for the fall meeting on the Metropolitan tracks, where the inducements, in the shape of purses, were more liberal. This year the money offered for over night events at Saratoga is much more liberal and V this will act as an inducement to bring out. liberal sized fields of fair quality. The liberal entry which the stakes and han - - dicaps have received also Indicates that more cf the better class horses will bo raced thaa - . in a number of years previously. Last year the bookmaking was open at th Spa course to all who desired to book on tho races. This season the Metropolitan Turf - Association will occupy stools in tho ring, and the Westerners, if they desire to lay odds, will be forced to occupy stools in tha outer circle. The booking at the Saratoga track during the past, few years has been surprisingly good considering that the attendance was much smaller than on the tracks In this vicinity. Bettors have had a hard time of it trying to bent the races at. the Spa for a number of Western stables are brought there and the mix - up in form of the Eastern and Western horfes has invariably caused such an upset that the bookmakers have had much the best, of the argument. It has also been the custom to send horses to the post half fit, the small purses being little incentive for owners to win, they prefer - ing to race their candidates into condition' and then pick up some of tho rich plums which are offered at the fall meetings later - With tho Jockey Club in active control of he track there is apt to bo a change for tho better, and the increase In the size of the purses will surely stimulate horsemen to offered''1 r Cfrrt t0 capturo the Prizes Billy Oliver, having 1,1 - m . . string to Fort Eric, where purse gathering - s PflsiL'l Minn nt 13 Mo - l, ? . 6 know what to do with All Gold, whom he beloved was capable of picking up a few purses hereabouts. He was on the point of turning All Cold over to one of the public trainers when his daughter. Mazle, volunteered to look after the colt. The canny Scotchman demurred at first but Anally consented to leave a cotiplo of' his s able hands behind and left Mazio in full charge of All Gold. The young woman promptly studied tho programme book of the meeting and the past, record of the horse nnd decided that AU (,oId s strong point, was sprinting and not a distance of ground, as he has been sent in the past. So she had him entered in the second race nt Brighton, a six furlong dash on Thurwlny last. All Cold won in fast time. It being his first " tirtory In over six weeks. Said Miss Oliver after the race; - pa has been sending the coif after the good horses ' right along at all sorts of distances. 1 put him where he belongs and he won the - very ' first time." Miss Oliver is a race horse owner herself ns Maiign and Mazic O. both belong to her.' The former of this pair is a fair sprinter, she winning a race on Thursday last at Fort Erie. R. J.
