At lenst one, and perhaps two or three, crack American players will visit the other side next summer .and play on English courts, while we have assurances 3f the presence of strong British representatives at the championship meeting In Newport next August. American experts had been 'held In 'ather poor esteem abroad until last year, and the popular impression .had been that the English standard of play was far higher than that in this country. That was no doubt the result of Ill-advised foreign trips of American xptrts who did not begin to show the r orm on English courts they had displayed here. Such players as Marion R. Wright, Deane Miller and John F. Talmage, Jr., went abroad'and were beaten repeatedly by second class English pUiy- TS, But they are only second class (nen in thla country. The Britishers mistook them for representative American players and judged accordingly. "OUlu" Campbell, formerly champion, j Is th(: only really representative play- j sr we have had on English courts in many a ywir, and when he played abroad in 18!>0 he was ranked among the lowest first class men there. Hue M.S he had been our champion. It was supposed that he was our best man, ivhereaK h(> was noi nearly so good a representative us three or four others would have been. His style of play was entirely too radical to succeed against such experienced players as the leading British cracks, and he was beaten repeatedly by them. j M. I 1 '. Goodbody, an Irishman, and one I of the strongest tennis players In all j England, came over to this side last , year, after a most successful season at several years with the best men in the country—or, they have been playing with him—and this has given him a reputation far greater than his skill warrants. When he went abroad last year the Englishmen expected much of him, but he did little of note on the other side. In the championship in July, he met Baddeley, formerly champion of all England. A Good story is told of this match, which shows the spirit abroad. Baddeley had expected a hard match and he found Talmage "very easy fruit." As another American who saw the Incident told it: Baddeley was simply playing horse with "Jack" Talmage, and after each stroke he would comment on the Am«r jtiomc. He found It a very different thing from, beating the American players he had met abroad, He was beaten by Vv'rcnn and Chace In Nordood Park, by Ln.rned In Longwood ar.d Southampton, by Howland In Narragansett, and In the final match for the American championship In Newport again by Wromi, our doughty little champion, nnd tho crack quarter back ot Har- ROBERT D.

He kept up a running Ire of amusing remarks as he drove the balls by the Yale man, and finally convulsed the British onlookers by remarking after an easy pass at the net, "Well, is that- the best the Yankees can do; they will have to send over-a better man than this to beat our third- raters." Talmage was beaten In three straight sets by Baddeley, and hurt America's tennis reputation by his poor showing. i The first open event he played in after nnd the crack quarter LiacK 01 J-IHI- aim juni. ^.,=1. ...*..... ..- n— .,---•• ----- • yard's 'Varsity football team last fall. | returning to these shores was In ISyack When he left for home in the fall, i early in September, where he was beat- Sooclbody complimented American play- [ en In three 1 straight sets by J.

GoodboJy will be over again soon after the Wimbledon tournament. He played In all the most Important tournaments last 'year from the time he reached this side until the end of the season, and he is expected to do so this summer. He will be invited to take part in all the big' invitation events and In Newport, for a rule of the TJ. S. N. L. T. A. permits foreigners to compete for the American championship only by invitation. He has promised to bring 1 with him some of the other English cracks, but past experience has taught Americans how hard it is to get the Britishers to come. They usually back out at the last minute, and many fear that they will do so again this year, though Goodbody Is almost certain to come, even if he has to come alone. Those whose names have been mentioned as possible companions and fellow "Yankee beaters" to come over with Goodbody are Ernest Eenshaw, formerly champion of England, and M. S.

The Sydney Referee gives the following interesting account of him, his name being Walter Gormly. His physique, to a casual observer, has nothing: about it that might indicate the possession of such exceptional powers as a. swimmer, but closer scrutiny would disclose the fact that Walter's chest, leg and shoulder development, although not remarkable^ is sullicient- pood to reveal the source from which his staylnc and propelling power is obtained. He is passionately fond of swimming 1 , and while residing at Sydney,spent the greater part of his spare hours at the natatorium, where he could be seen for a long time, morning and afternoons, throwing 1 lap after lap behind him in great style.

Wrenn and • Hobart made a conditional plan last Bummer to go abroad together this spring, but this has been abandoned, and Hobart will not be able to go, on account of business. Wrenn is working hard at his studies at Harvard, and he, too, says he does not believe he can go over this year. Many of his friends, however, still believe that he will do so, and return again in time for the American championships In August. The English championship event takes place In "Wimbledon in July, so playera can take part In both. It is certain, however, that "Eddie" Hall will go abroad very soon, and that ta will play tennis there a great deal. It would be difficult to find a better representative for American players than Hall If he were In his best condition; but he was not last year, and it is doubtful if he will be again this summer. He was placed fourteenth in the official ranking of American experts at i the end of 1894. "three-quarters fifteen" i below Hovey, Hobart and Larned. At his best a few years ago he was equal to any man in the country.

How much faster or glower he might have been had the ordinary and gen- eraly accepted method of using th» nether limbs been adopted can only be a matter of conjecture, but men qualified to judge are fairly unanimous In the belief that if nothing is lost by the champion's peculiar stroke, the benefit, as compared with that derived from the usual manner of forcing the body through the water, is and further, there can'be very little doubt in the mind of a thinkinj; person that valuable force is" expended uselessly every time the leg breaks the surface.

A general movement has been Inaugurated among the league clubs to curtail the number of "dead-heads" who for years have received curtesles at the hands at the various clubs in the way of season tickets. Many of the re- • cipients of such favors have abused them, not only by transferring their books, but by back-capping the club management in a. scandalous manner. This subject was fully discussed and adjusted at the recent spring meeting. Hereafter each club will have twenty- ; five Instead of ten "souvenir tickets" good for grand stand admission to all league grounds, but the number of local books' and passes will be greatly reduced. The wisdom of this move, is, however, questionable, except from the standpoint o£ very cheap economy.— SportinR Life, protlucos tbo lihavo ro^nllH in ;*"ri:tyy. jiowi'r.'iilly aiid ouiclilj-.
