AN AVERAGE OF MORE THAN $530 At the January Sale Most of General 33. F. Tracy's Establishment Will Pe Auctioned Off. The number of horses transferred and the total sum realized at the "Old Glory" horse sale, which ended at Madison Square Garden yesterday, have probably never been touched at any one previous auction, not even at the famous Tattersall's, in London. The Fasig Tipton affair was held in probably the greatest covered arena in the world, took nine days of uninterrupted selling from morning till late at night, and, in all. 932 head realized the enormous sum of $495.4 10, beyond an doubt an unprecedented sale of harness stock. The average price was $531. uO, and, considering that the top price v. as but $12,1011, the sum that Directum cost an Indianapolis firm of dealers, this means much more than If there had been a Flying Fox or a St. Blaise or an Ormonde or some other king of the turf to fetch a fortune in himself and thus jump the average up into the thousands. Indeed, it was a marked Feature of the recent sale that the stallions went cheaply, double the auction price being offered in vain the fame day for Directum and Ponce de Leon and several lesser lights. While the market price of horses, generally, at the present time, is high, It is undoubtedly the fact that the big average was because of th dispersal of the Bitter Root and Suburban Studs, both of which were owned and operated by men of wealth, who would destroy inferior stock rather than have It about the farms. On the death of these famous oreeders, Iarcus Daly the "Copper and William F. Spier of Glens Falls, N. the entire breeding plants came under the hammer and the eagerness with which everything from the weavllng colt, to the 20 year old brood mare was snapped up by the smaller breed' rs and racing men showed that the buyers held no fears of the soundness or worth of the animals, something that cannot be said of the ordinary consignment, which, coming frcm the casual breeder or racing man is very evidently sold only because the animals are not up to the etandard required by the seller. In other words, where the average animal is sold for a doubtful reason, these big consignments were thrown on the market in ail their prime and even the little wobbly kneed weavlings sold up, frequently, near the thousand dollar mark. Even a little rat necked broncho pony from the Spier estate fetched $190. When the smaller consignments were reached, on the fourth day of the sale, the average began to tumble, although Lord Derby. Shadow Chimes, Peter Sterling and some others fetched reassuring aums. The same company will hold its annual mid winter sale in January, when, so it is announced, a lot of the stallions and mares from General Benjamin F. Tracy's breeding farm, including the blue ribbon winner Advertiser, will be put. up for sale. The Garden is now in the hands of the bicycle race promoters and the six day track is now building there.

Among the rising young bull players' who have gone out from Brooklyn during ihe past year or so is William E. Oumr, be; tor known perhaps as "Pony" Ottmer. a resident of the Bushwick section. Ottmer played with the Aurora, independent team last season as and first baseman, making a reputaiion as an all around player that attracted great attention among the minor leagues of the West. Ottmer turned down an offer from Denver, and, late in the joined Jimmy Manning's Washington American League club on trial. Owing to the fact that the Washington club had no chance and that 'here 6f wf'A fn 'A IS SivC William E. Ottmer. A Young Brooklyn Player Who Graduated Front the Aurora, 111., Club. fore, did not care to go to the expense of an additional salary, Ottmer did not play in any scheduled games. If confidence and ability count, however, the Bushwick boy will experience no difficulty in finding a berth next season. He is wanted at Aurora again, but has ambitions higher up and may be found in the Eastern League another year. Ottmer is 23 years old and weighs in the neighborhood of ISO pounds. He began playing with the Brooklyn, in 18M, as backstop, and the following year became captain and first baseman of the club, which changed its name to the Brightons. He joined the Resolutes of the Prospect Park Amateur League In 1896, and made a splendid record. He was a member of the Sidneys, champions of the Prospect Park Amateur League, in 1897 and 1898, contributing much to the prowess of that famous aggregation. He played with semi professional teams in and in 1900 joined the Baldwins club of the South Side League, covering an outfield position. The team finished second by a good margin. The Brooklyn boy began last season with the Raleighs of the Virginia Xorth Carolina League, but tho climate did not agree with him, and he went to Aurora, where he played many exciting games, particularly with some of the Chicago City League teams. Ottmer made himself so popular in Aurora that the natives insisted on his win The Furrows The wear, the tear and the worry of life plough deeply. leans prescribe a tomcal Baltimore is their choice for strength, cheer and comfort.

Schoes from the Roped Arena. Tom Sharkey, In anticipation of a match with Jim Jeffries, has started in doing light work in preparation for tho harder labor of active training which he must undergo, should the champion agree to take him on. Tom is afraid that Jeffries may steal a march on him by agreeing to meet the sailor at no distant date and has made up his mind not to be caught napping. Tom believes that his long rest has done him good and 13 supremely confident that he can beat the husky It is his Intention, however, to indulge In one or two bouts with men of lesser caliber than the champion before he battles for the championship and he is now considering a proposition to flffht Peter Maher. Manager Crowley of Hartford has already made an offer for a contest between the two, Dan Sullivan Is much worked up over a report that Young Corbett has changed his mind about not fighting for some time and that he may agree on Saturday to give Terry McGovern another chance to regain, his lost laurels in the near future. Dave will be on hand at the meeting on Saturday and intends to remind Corbett of his promise, made last week, to let him have the first chance to fight. "They asked me to bet $5,000 on the side' said Dave, "and when I produced the money they crawled. They thought to bluff me. thinking I could not produce the money. I did and I can produce as much more to bet that I am a better man that Corbett and you know the Sulllvans don't bet for the fun of It." A good fight scheduled for to night Is booked to take place before the New Haven Athletic Club, at New Haven, Conn. Patsey Sweeney of Manchester and George McFadden of New York are the principals, the bout calling for twenty rounds at HO pounds. The two met once before and put up one of the hardest fights ever witnessed in this vicinity. McFadden won on that occasion. PatBey has improved since and may turn the tables to nlgrht. Quite a number of New Yorkers will make the trip to New Haven this afternoon. Eugene Bezenah of Cincinnati knocked out Emll Sanchez of Buffalo in the seventh round of a ten round bout at the Abbey Athletic Club of Cincinnati, last evening. Bezenah far outclassed the Buffalo boy. Jack Madden, the little Brooklyn boxer, who some years ago was looked upon as a possible champion. Is still in the came. Jack is at present In Kansas City, where he is matched to meet Hughey McPadden, the Brooklyn lad, who defeated Kid Broad some weeks ago. Pool and Milliards. The annual tournament for the billiard championship of the Crescent Athletic Club will begin at Clinton street club house on Saturday evening, December 16. The style of game will be 14 inch balk lino, 250 points, anchor shots barred. Entries close on December 13 with the billiard committee. Clarence McMahon won the pool championship of the Crescent Athletic Club last night, defeating W. M. Powers by the score of 100 to 95. Up to tho last frajne Powers was in front, needing only five points. McMahon, after Powers broke the balls, ran off the fourteen he needed in order to win. J. M. Heatherton secured second prize. Frank A. Keeney defeated 'George Sutton in an interesting exhibition game of 18 Inch balk line last night at the Knickerbocker Billiard Academy, by the score of 200 to 172. Sutton played one shot in while Keeney was allowed two shots In. The winner's average was 6 20 30. and Sutton's was 5 22 30. To night Arthur Townsend will play Sutton under the same conditions. NEW BACINQ BTJLES Announced by the Automobile Club of America. The Automobile Club of America announces the following amendments to its racing rules: AMBXD RULE 53 TO READ AS FOLLOWS: 53 Once In the hands of the starter no automobile shali receive any further care, except from Its driver, or his assistant. NEW RULES. 15a In record races and contests automobiles shall be classified according to weight. lob Bicycles, tricycles and tandems shall not compete against four wheel vehicles. 63a During the running of a contest or record race, the driver must have exclusive control of the steering and power of his automobile. 67a No time shall be considered official unless the time is 'taken by an official of a recognized meeting, or by one appointed subject to the approval of the racing committee. The first hockey match of tho season on New York ice. will be played at St. Nicholas' Rink, tonight, between Yale, the Intercollegiate champions for the past three years, and tho seven of the St. Nicholas Skating Club. The line up of both teams will be changed somewhat from last season, but neither captain would say to day how he would place his seven. The game begins at 8:15 o'clock. tium or Goldsmith abroad with him in the near future to prepare for the English Derby of next spring. Last season Mr. Whitney's winnings on the English and French turf amounted to almost $185,000 and, while he announced some time ago that he would not race abroad next year, it is likely that he has reconsidered his determination. The track was heavy at New Orleans yesterday. The winners were O'Hagen, Judge Stoadiuan, Kaloma, Petit Maltre. Lou Woods and John Bull. Cochran rode two winners and Dale, Dominick, Davison and Dyne one each. Mud larks had an inning at Oakland yes terdav. The winners were Evander, Grey feld. Rollick, Josic Eonic and Wyoming. Birkenruth rode two winners. O'Connor, J. Woods, Howson and Jackson were the other successful jockeys. See that Schaefer and Barutel defeated Howison and Morningstar, respectively, at billiards, winners' average being in the vicinity of six billiards to an inning. Once ran six In an inning myself. Is it too late to enter the tourney at Madison Square Garden? Rumbling noises, which shatter the atmosphere now and then, proceed from Sandow and Rolandow, who are complimenting each other In Polish. One of them wants the other to meet him In a strength test, to Include such feats as juggling with a horse and moving a church.

Colt O'Hagen, owned by Sullivan and raced in the name of Regan, won yesterday at New Orleans. Lucky Celtic combination! If I had noticed it, might have backed the colt myself. Tom Sharkey is negotiating for a match with Peter Maher. "While I am waiting to hear from Jeffrey," says Sharkey with childlike confidence, "I might as well take on some one else." Yes, indeed, while he is waiting to hear from Jeffries, ho might as well take on everybody that comes along. He will have plenty of time. VIGILANT. MARSHALL STILL CHAMPION. Prank J. Marshall, of this borough, and ex champion of the Brooklyn Chess Club, has a second time annexed the championship of the Manhattan Chess Club by emerging winner of Its annual tournament. from the Sportsman ifotebookr 4 Style of Play Too Intricate for All Players Save Slosson and Schaefer. WIZARD DISPLAYS POOR FORM. Off Stroke in His Game With. Howison. Poor Average Besults Barutel' Disposes of Morningstar. It is hardly possible that billiards are on the decline. The contrary seems to be the case, for both in the public billiard halls and' in the clubs more interest than ever is manifested in the game. There does not, however, seem to be the same, desire to witness public contests between the leading players of the professional ranks that there was a. decade ago. It was possibly with the idea of Increasing the public interest in the game and bringing out more prominently the superior skill of Jacob Schaefer and George Slosson over the other members of the professional ranks that the present series of games, now being played in Manhattan, was made a tournament in place of a match or series of matches between the two acknowledged leaders at the game. It seems, however, that, in order to make the execution of shots as difficult as possible for the two men who have alternated in the title of champion for the past fifteen years, with the exception of the; brief internal when the late Frank Ives held the honor as a cue artist, the projectors of the tournament have made the game too hard by far for the other players. As a result the contests between the other players in the tournament drag and are prolonged too far for the comfort and Interest of the spectators. When Ives first made his appearance before a metropolitan gathering, some thirteen years ago, he was not asked to play 14 inch balk line with Schaefer and Slosson. Instead Ives played 8 inch to the other pair's 14 inch. The result was that, although Ives was forced to succumb to the superior play of the then acknowledged disputants for the title of champion, the series of games was far more interesting and absorbing to the spectators than the present series of contests. In addition to Ives, Maurice Daly, Catton and" Heiser also played on the 8 inch mark. There was no confusion from the different chalk marks, and, while the present series of is called a championship contest between the six leading players available for the purpose, it Is in reality nothing more than a match between Schaefer and Slosson, with the other four as fillers It takes a Schaefer or a Slosson, with that precision of stroke which has given them fame and fortune, to make a contest of sufficient interest to the onlookers to attract a paying gate. The extreme delicacy of stroke which has brought both these players to the top is lacking in the others. Consequently their efforts do not prove as attractive and they to draw the crowd. Jacob Schaefer was plainly off stroke, in his game with Leonard Howison at Madison Square Garden Concert Hall last night. Very likely the wizard did not try his hardest to.make many of the shots, that he slipped up on. Howison has been a pupil of Schaefer for the past two years and they have met in any number of exhibition games and, while the younger man has shown some improvement under Jake's tuition, he has not. made the rapid strides which Frank Ives did when he and Schaefer were touring the country. It is likely that the reports that Schaefer has been ill were true. He seemed, last Bight, to be uncertain In his stroke and judging of distance, at times, and. while he made any number of brilliant shots, masses, draws and the like, he was unable to corral the ivories for any run of fair proportions, with the exception of the break for a total of 65 in his twenty sixth inning. It was rather painful at times to watch the futile efforts of this great player of the past, when he slipped up on shots, which, as a rule, have no terrors for him. Still he can be depended upon to do much better in the remaining games that he is to play and his followers need not give up hope. What he will do to Sutton and Morningstar will be a plenty. Possibly, Barutel will give him a hard fight. The Frenchman is confident that he will 'beat Jake. It takes more than confidence, however, to win a billiard match and, unless Schaefer turns up again in poor shape, he will score the majority of points. Last night it took Schaefer sixty seven innings to secure his 400 points, his average being a little under six. Howison made 357 points for an average of less than five and a third. In the afternoon the game was a long drawn out one and resulted in an easy and one sided victory for Barutel. Morningstar I I Kacmg fyossip. It is rumored in racing circles that Dick Dwyer, an old Brooklynite, who has been starting horses in the West and in California for the past half dozen years, will replace Mars Cassidy as starter at Aqueduct next season. Dwyer last served as a flag wielder in this section of the country at the electric light track, at Maspeth, L. hack in 1S94. Those who have seen him start of late say that he is the equal in point of ability of any starter now in harness. With the jockeys he is extremely popular and they obey him implicitly. Cassidy, while he would like to act as starter on the Metropolitan circuit, had such a bitter experience during the late meeting at Aqueduct that he is not any too anxious to serve again at Aqueduct. It is possible that Dwyer, in addition to succeeding Cassidy at the meetings of the Queens County Jockey Club, will also serve in a like capacity at the meetings of the Metropolitan Jockey Club, at the new track, near Jamaica. Dick Dwyer, years ago, raced a string of horses, the best known of which was the mare, Quesal, which, in her day, was a very fair selling plater. She was the flam of Tommy Atkins, which was. one of the best of the 1900 crop of 2 year olds. There once "was a Jockey, and what do you think, He'd melt ice with money, and wine only drink; Champagne and old ale formed his favorite diet, Now Patsy is broke and he's awfully quiet. Mother Goose Adapted. Trainer Tom Healey and Jockey Patsy Mc Cue have parted for all time. Healey says that MoCue is Incorrigible and that he has cost him thousands of dollars during the season just past. It was Healey who developed MoCue into the great rider ho is. While MeCue was under Healey's watchful eye tho boy kept within bounds and behaved himself. Once out of Healey's sight, however, lie indulged in all sorts of excesses and developed an inherited fondness for stimulants which will, in the end, land him in the gutter, unless he mends his way. McCue achieved his greatest measure of success during the racing season of 1900, when he rode to victory Kinlcy Mack in the Brooklyn Handicap and repeated that success in the Suburban Handicap, a feat which la unprecedented in the annals of racing. During the past season McCue's appearance in the saddle have been at times brilliant and at others below par. He has indulged in long sprees and all hope of his reformation seems to be futile. Now that Healey has given him up, as a bad proposition, his path down hill will be hastened and a career, which was full of promise, destroyed. John Hugglns, who trained William Whitney's English string last season vislted his eiifployer at the letter's home, at West bury, L. yesterday.

Since the minor leagues declared independence of the sovereignty of the National League they have taken no more important step to show a disregard of past restrictions than the action of the Eastern League at its annual meeling yesterday. "Pat" Powers and tho magnates of the tight little league decided to break a law that has been observed for the past ten years and they did it with a breezy indifference that proves beyond a doubt the intentions of the minor leagues to go it alone hereafter, irrespective of what advances the major organization may institute later in the way of a new national agreement. The Eastern League, finding its circuit fractured by the disbandmenr of the Syracuse and Hartford Ciubs, calmly admitted Jersey City and Newark, the former of which comes within the pale of the old "five mile rule," which prevailed under the lately abrogated national agreement. I'nder that rule no minor league could invade territory within five miles of a National League Club without that club's consent. Now that the agreement is no longer in force, the Eastern League decided that it did not require the New York Club's consent and awarded a franchise to Jersey City. What President Freedman will do remains to be seen. It is hinted that the New York Club will play Sunday games at Hoboken, next summer, in order to kill interest in the Eastern League games in New Jersey. The Eastern League is now more compact than ever with Newark, Jersey City, Providence and Worcester, as the Eastern section, and Buffalo, Rochester. Toronto and Montreal in the West. A much greater population will be drawn from and better capital will be invested. At the meeting yesterday the pennant was awarded to Rochester. Patrick T. Powers was re elected president for the tenth time. The old board of directors was also reelected. KING CHIMES SOLD. A. C. Fiske Purchases the Famous Trotter for S1.700.
