No Casualties Among Ball Players or War Correspondents Little Seasickness. (Special to The Eagle.) Savannah. Ga., March 4 The Naval detachment of Manager Dahlen'a Superbas, led by Captain Jake Daubert. armed here on the steamship City of Savannah list sight, and left this morning for Augutta camp. There were sixteen In the party of voyagers who sailed away from New Tork last Saturday, and Daubert reported all Lands In perfect shape to start on active campaign. The trip down was the most delightful ever experienced by company of ballplayers and war correspondents. Can Comerford, chief of the commissary department, and Leo Callahan, raw recruit, were the only ones who suffered from seasickness. The rest stood the trip splendidly. There was no attempt to do any hard training on board ship, although many of the vets kept their arms In condition shuffling the pasteboards. Many new wrinkles were learned from Jimmy Deinpsey's baseball game, which had a wide vogue especially among the younger set. Before disembarking the players waited on Commander Dreyer and thanked him for steering the boat through sunny seas, stewards Falconer and Hobinson also came In for some of "them kind words." Captain Daubert patted himself cordially on the back for bringing his charges Into camp a day ahead of scheduled time, tor which over- SPORT COMMENT BY "RICE." The news from the training camps Is that the boys are training for what looks like a hard season in baseball. Accidents aro dlstressly few, from the reporters' standpoint, and the custom of marrying actresses seems to have died out entirely for the nonce. From far Savannah comes the Intelligence from Abe Yuger, our own special and acute observer, that the Brooklyn team reached that seaport on the good ship Savannah a day lu advunce, and In good spirits. He allows that the boys are champion sailors, and has great hopes for them in the National League, They are to continue tholr dusty way to Augusta today 'by train, and should reach there la time for the noonday bog and hominy. Yankees at Work. While the home talent is chasing toward Augusta comes news from Edgar A. Lodge 625 Monroe street. Edgar is in Bermuda and keeping an eye on the New York Yankees. He says the Island Is the original garden spot that Adam had to u'hoe every time he had a day off, and tu which the Agricultural Department sent uiiu me seeas iur ui'ie trees wuen ue wanted peaches. Continuing, he speaks as follows: "Bermuda, February 28, 1913. "Sporting Editor, The Eagle: "While New York fans are bundled up In heavy overcoats, the New York Yankees are throwing the ball around oti Bermudlan soli under a burning hot sun. However, they have but two hours practice a day, from 10 to 12, Most of this time is spent in batting practice, eliding with a mile run around the field. "Chance and Hartzell. who have had a week's start on the others, are practically in mid-season form. Chance Is In fine shpe, running around the diamond v like an 11-second man. "Sweeney is also In good condition and If he keeps up his Hying start he will chow every catcher In the American League bow to play the game. "The pitchers Koatlng, Ford. Davis, Warhop and Fischer are speeding tfle ball up for batting practice, and are even using a little curve occasionally. "Chase Is showing his last season's form, and will evidently do his duty again this year. "Lewelt is hitting hard, but has not as yet his old-time form at fielding. "There Is a young fellow with the team who has caught the eye of everyone. Including Frank Chance. He Is a schoolboy from the Rockland Military Academy and his name Is Dudley Farn-worth. His fielding at third base, where he has been playing, has been perfect. His throws are fast and accurate, and he handles the ball with the grace and ease of an old-time professional. From present Indications he will be the find of the season. "Chance Is very much pleased with the appearance of the men, today being me jiruc iinio ne nas seen them all in action.

New York, after a close race where the result was In doubt up to the Bhooclng of the very last man, defeated Philadelphia In the Intercity trap shooting at tho Sportsman's Show In Madison Square Oar-den last night. Consistent and even brilliant shooting marked the match, but New York by a more even team average defeated their Quaker City rivals by the score of 469 o 457. Three men on the New York toam. Captain R. L. Spotts, N. Herrlck and A. L. Burns, of the Larch-iron t Gun Club tied for first honors with scores of 95 points. Close behind were J. H. Hendrlckson with 93 and Drt Sauer with 91. The high men on the Philadelphia team, W. Behen and H. Landls were one point behind the leaders for New York, with 94 points. Captain C. H. New-comb of the Quakers got 91 as did E. G. Springer. W. M.

Philadelphia, March 4 "Mike" Murphy, the veteran trainer of the University of Pennsylvania track team, returned to his home in this city yesterday from the South, where he spent several months in quest of health. He reports that bis condition Is greatly Improved, and hopps to be able to resume coaching the track candidates when the weather permits Btdoor work. punctuality he expects a send-off from Manager Dahlen at Augusta this afternoon. The most observed of the younger members of the baseball grlgada was Bill Hanrahan. the sturdy, young auburn-haired Brooklyn pitcher, who Is the protege of the McKeevers. The lad comes by his baseball through Inheritance, as his father was a substitute Inflelder on Pop Anson's - famous colts. The elder Hanrahan shortstopped In place of Williamson back In his sslld days. Hanrahan Is determined to make good In basebsll, but be csn still fall back on another trait of the Hanrahan family If It comes to a pinch. His uncle Is Dennis P. Hanrahan. law partner of State Senator Cul-len, who knows but that at some future day the youngster may take up the ballplayer's burden, a la Johnnie Ward and Davy Fultx. Tex Erwln had to have a stateroom to himself aboard ship. Tex has broadened out like a ward politician during the winter, and will be mistaken for Mr. Taft at Augusta if ho doesn't watch out. The noisiest man in the party Is Eddie Phelps, who talks three times a day because be has to order his meals at those times. Phelps is known only by bis personality, which Is louder than words.

Doings at Martin, Bozeman Bulger has sent us a personal request not to call Marlin, Texas, where the New York Giants are training, Martin Springs. There are no springs worth springing on the public. The distinguishing spot of the town Is a well. As is the custom, the well is a hole In the ground. It has medicinal properties and persons who do not need medicine prefer the nearest saloon. The place is called Marlin because It Is printed that way on the map and not becase Old Man Marlin played with Cap. Anson on the old Chicago team, or was a member of the old Atlantlcs of Brooklyn, who beat the Cincinnati Red Stockings In the days before Lillian Russell began to get divorces. Why Old Man Marlin did not play on the old Atlantlcs Is a mystery. Pretty much everybody who was a foot high in those days seems to have done so, judging from the number of people to whom we have been referred who could tell us all about it. Washington Starts South, After the Inaugural parade In Washington today the Washington baseball squad will start for its training quarters In Charlottesville, Va. Walter Johnson Is already on hand, and that speaks well for Washington's future. Also Herman Schafer and Nick Altrock are there. They are facetiously said to be going South to train their humor, but that is not literally true. Schaefcr Is recognized by baseball men as one of the brainiest cap tains In the business and has frequently been mentioned as a good man to manage a major league team. He was a brilliant performer In his prime and can still Jump in and play much more baseball than a majority of the recruits who are so loudly praised in the spring. He suffers from the misfortune of being a humorist and nobody takes him seriously. Clark Griffith said at the American League meeting In New York last month that he expected to derive a vast desl of benefit from having with him such a wlso old head as Schaefer In whipping the youngsters Into shape. Kicking on the Referee In order to gain free advertising for the McFarland-Brltton go at Madison Square Garden on March 7, Dan Morgan has started kicking on Referee Billy Joh. He does not Impugn Joh's honesty, but claims ho has made a number of mistakes in the past. If Joh has made any unpardonable breaks that would disqualify him from officiating at such a big match, they have not been apparent to the public eye. He may have allowed the boxers to do things not strictly In accord with the Boxing Commission's rules, but every other referee In New York has done the same thing and the commissioners were there. Joh has Impressed us, personally, as one of the best referees we ever saw, even when his private opinion about the winner of a fight on points did not agree with ours. Morgan Is making a mistake and hurting his own game when he picks out the referee in this Instance as a source of press agent notices. NEWS OF THE ATHLETES. Abel Klviat will be a starter In both the 600-yard and 1,000-yard championship races at Madison Square Garden Thursday evening. These two events will be the feature races of the meet. One of the best races of the Indoor season should be witnessed on Saturday evening nt the Twenty-third Regiment Armory when Myles McHugh and Abel Klviat hook up In the half-mile event.

Swimming in the high schools has be come one of the leading athletic activ ities. Throughout the past winter months dual swimming meets have been held among tho eighteen high schools. Competition has been so keen in this series that three schools are now tied for first place. Those meets have developed a class of swimmers that bns far surpassed the expectations of Dr. C.

CUBAN GAINS SLIGHTLY IN CHESS TOURNAMENT. Frank J. Marshall lost a little ground In the chess tournament at Havana yesterday, by drawing his game against Juan Corso, local champion, who played In brilliant form sgalnBt the Brooklyn master.

Tom Carter started for St. Louis but was relieved by Pedro Maupome lp the fifty-second Inning. Th winner's high run was 8, Carter's 4 and Maupome's 3. SUTTON DEFEATS ORTIZ. Chicago, March 4 Oeorge Sutton, the veteran billiard player, won a match at 18.2 here last night from Jose OrtlK, champion of Spain.

The chandelier was designed by Roily Slmes, a well-known Brooklyn clubman, who formerly bowled with the Carleton Club In the Inter-club League. Mr. Slmes Is a personal friend of the Brooklyn club's president. the referee had to warn three of the Carlyle players after three fouls had been called on each. Soon after the start ' of the second half, Hanrahan shot a clever field goal from a difficult angle, and Rome followed up with another pretty basket.

However, every Indication points to a post season of games, as three of the teama now are within striking distance of the goal. The whole situation has developed Into an Interesting problem lu percentages. The St. Nicholas team, which is third In the race, will play and probably de-teat the Irish-American A. C. tonight at the St. Nicholas Rink. A victory for the St. Nlchs will place them In close prox- Iralty to the Hockey Club, which has yet one regularly scheduled game with the Crescents to be played on Friday night, and a tie game with the Irish-Americans yet to be decided. The Crescents are now In the lead, but a victory for the Hockey Club players on Friday night will plnce the latter team In front. If the league Insists on the Hockey Club ploying off with the Irish, und the latter should win, the defeat for Brltton's team would establish a triple tie between the Crescents, Hockey Club ana St. Nicholas teams which would re quire a post season series to decide. Tho first game of the professional series will be played on Saturday night between the OttawaB of Ottawa, and the Wanderers of Montreal, An unprecedented number of reservations has been made, which Indicates that the games will be more largely attended than any hockey event that has ever taken place here. ON BASKETBALL COURTS. The Empire State team went down to defeat at the hands of the Rockville Centre five by the score of 88 to 27. At the end of the first half each team had scored 15 points, but as the second half progressed tbo Rockville Centre boys pulled away from their opponents and won with ease. The Prospect Triangles scored an easy victory over the St. John's team of New Jersey by 28 to A. Following this game by 10 to 6, but superior team work on the part of the Triangles enabled them to even the score and finally win out in tho last few minutes. The Welcome Hall Seniors won a hard game from the Latltla A. C. Ave by G" to 24. The game was vory rough at times, and both teams suffered by having fouls called.

Mr. Abell continued to feel sore in 1897, and many changes were made In the team. Dave Foutz gave way to Will-lam Barnie as manager, and many of the old-time favorites were replaced by new blood, but the season was not successful from any angle, and the team finished In a tie with Washington for sixth place. Numerous deals were made for players, but, on the whole, Brooklyn was not winner in the dickering for "human chattels." President Charles H. Byrne, who had been the head of the Brooklyn Club since its foundation, died on January 4, 1898, and the present writer, who had long been secretary of the club, was elected to succeed him. Mr. Byrne's III health had thrown things out of gear, and It was largely necessary to start all over again. In the first place, It was realized that the club could not be made a financial success at the old erounds. and it was decided to move. The best place In sight was the Washington Park, which was to be abandoned this year in favor of Ebbets Field. It was diagonally across the street from the original Washington SEMI-PRO BALL PLAYERS BEADY FOR REAL WORK Season at Ridgewood Park Will Open March 23. The season at Wallace's Ridgewood Baseball Park will open on March 23, It the weather conditions are favorable. Nat C. Strong will this season put a crack colored team In the field, to be known as the Brooklyn Royal Giants, which will be captained by "Percy" Enrl. J. W. Connor, who has managed the Royals for several years, has retired from baseball. The Royals will meet the RIdgewoods In the opening game, and will play a great many games at Wallace's. Double-headers will be the rule, and the scheme is for the RIdgewoods and the Royal Giants to each meet the visiting team and play off for the championship. The following men have been signed for the Brooklyn Royal Giants: Webster and Booker, catchers; Ball, Dismukes, Harvey and Waldc, pitchers; Pryor, Wright, Handy and Kindle, lnfielders; C. Thomas, J. Thomas and Earl, outfielders. The Ridgewood team Is not made up as yet, but Fred Hohman will do the catching and Jimmy Hall will play short. There Is a strong rumor that Ernest Lin-demann will be the regular pitcher. The Cuban Stars will meet the RIdge woods on Sunday, April 13. The Cubans will line up as follows: Pedrosa, Mendez, Pareda and Lazaga, pitchers; Flgarola and GonzaleB, catchers; Parpetl, first base; Chacon, second base; Jimenez, shortstop; Moran, third base; Hidalgo, center field; Villa, left field; Forente, right field. The Cuban team will arrive in New York on April 11. The Cuban Stars aud the Lincoln Giants will meet in a championship game at Wallace's Field on Decoration Day. C. H. Davis, 480 Vermont street.

GIANT ROOKIES SUFFERING FROM USUAL SORE SPOTS. (Special to The Eagle.) Marlin, Tex., March 4 Three of the (Slants' rookies are nursing sore spots, due to the strenuous session Indulged In by the entire camp Sunday and yesterday. "Big Bill" Jacobson is Laid up with a bad knee, which may keep him out of active training for several days. Bill went far out to centerfield yesterday for a fly and fell heavily, landing on his shoulder and knee. The pain was so great In his knee that he had to be escorted to the dressing room. Tom Hanley and La Rue Kirby are the other members of the team laid up with sore Joints. It was thought that Hanley had appendicitis, but, upon examination, It was found that he was suffering from abdominal strains. Claude Cooper seems the find of the season, together with Jim Thorpe. It is almost a certainty that these two players will earn a rogular berth on the team, and that they will be seen in action In many a game at the Polo Grounds tho coming season. Mike Finn, manager of the Mobile team, is after the release of Pitcher Smith, and It Is probable that McGraw will send tho youngster, together with Jaolbson, to the Mobile team for a llttlo more seasoning. BROWNSVILLE BALL TEAMS FORM A BIG LEAGUE Brownsville baseball enthusiasts will have a league all of their own the coming season. Eight clubs have been taken Into the organization known as the Brownsville Baseball League and games will be played every Sunday morning on grounds In East New York near Taft's Oval. Max Hyman and a committee representing the various teams In the league got together and planned a schedule. It was decided to have each team meet the other teams twice. The winning team will be presented with two trophies, one offered by Assemblyman Thomas Ingram and the other by Herman Let-kowlts, a Brownsville citizen. The teams entered are the Nonpareil, Brooklyn Victoria, Delma, Brookdale, Phlloan, Eastern, Krlmson and Cabaret clubs. The first game will be played on Sunday morning, April 6. Four games will be scheduled each Sunday morning, the final to be played at Ebbets Meld In July. OUTDOOR SHOW IS PLANNED. Gamo preserves and streams, plenti fully stocked with fish of all descriptions, are to be found in almost every section of the United States and Canada, but the sportsman In search ot his favorltsf pastime Is often at a loss to determine Just where to go. For the benefit of all such a comprehensive exhibit of the haunts of game and fish has boen arranged for the Travel and Vacation Show, which opens at the Grand Central Palace, on March 20. Psnoramlo views, showing many of the great natural game preserves, scenic reproductions of rivers, forests and plains, presenting an unequaled opportunity of studying the best locations for sport and recreation, nnd general information 1 nil subjects relative to hunting and fish ing, will be obtainable at this exhibit. CHARLES H. EBBETS aaaat ir thou a ttcs Park and was located at Fourth avenue and Third street. The street railway companies had a large share in the transaction, as they realized that the better the club drew the better It would be for them, and they furnished some of the capital for leasing the new site, grading the property and erecting the stands. When completed, Washington Park was not the same as Ebbets Field, as It was constructed of wood, but there were no steel and concrete stands In those days, and Brooklyn's baseball appearance was considered first class. Manager Barnie did not have a winner with which to start the season of 1893, but he did the best he could under the circumstances. He was succeeded in the middle of the season by Mike J. Griffin. Finishing sixth did not suit the fans, and a radical reorganization of the playing team was determined upon. The Baltimore team had won the pen- ! nant three times In a row in that city, but was not meeting with the support merited by its playing strength, and the Brooklyn directors decided to buy it out almost in its entirety for 1899. (To be continued tomorrow.) SEVENTEEN MORE YANKEES ARRIVE AT BERMUDA PARK. (Special to The Eagle.) Hamilton, Bermuda, March 4 Seventeen members of the Highlander's squnj arrived here yesterday, completing the team. The party was met at the deck by Frank Chance, and he seemed much pleased with the appearance of the men, particularly Cree and Wolter. Although Chance told the men to tako a short walk around the grounds and not to Indulge In practice until they had recovered their land legs, the temptation proved to be too much for the majority of the newly arrived members, and they were soon batting and tossing the ball about. Twenty-eight members of the team are now here, and the work of training will start In earnest tomorrow morning. Chance has earned the respect of all the players, and they hustln at his every word, trying to please and do the right thing. Me is not driving the men, In fact, he Is taking things easy, confident that the warm climate will do much for the players. After the practice sessions the men trot around the field, sometirr a twice and three times. All of the pitchers are In excellent condition particularly Fisher. Hal Chase Is putting In some good work at second base, making some wonderful one-handed pickups and stops It Is a certainty that Hal will make good at the midway station ,N THE 0 WORLD Bulck has been crowned king of the Brooklyn automobile show. At the exhibition which ended In the Twenty-third Regiment Armory on Saturday night tho Brooklyn Life Publishing Company offered a prize for the most popular car at the show.
