Stanford, are anxiously av.'a.t-ing tholr turn tomorrow in the three races which are seneduied for the e:gnt-eenUi annual inter-collegiate regeita on the Hudson opposite this city. The finishing: touches have been added and the eoaciie ere sat:srid that tney have done their part and that it's now up to the crews themselves 'to show t.ie;r mettle and their power. But while the oarsmen who take the stage tomorrow afternoon are be ng kept strictly quiet and away from excittment. this usually quiet Hudwn town is teeming -with the anticipation of three races which have every promise of beur the hardest fought and closest of many seasor.e. Speculation is running riot and backers of every one of the crews are in evidence here among the early arrivals of the boat race enthusiasts. Groups of college graduates mmghng wit'i the unrtersmduateo are gathermg about the Nrlson House and the .Morgan House easrerly awaiting any latest news concerning the crews or tae odds that are being .raoted and every train that t-,,i!i in hrinsrs its fresh load of rooterfa .who wili have trouble in restramin en- thusiasrn tomorrow. fa. i.incr hut one rac-e out ot rowed in the paft three years and after winning the wirsity race 1-' times sir.c-entering the intw-coUeg'ate row.ng eT-cle3, it is no email wonder tnat he Ithacans cannot ne favorites' post in the betting. They lead this year and are getting even money E1LS' LINEUP IS SELECTED. Last Appearance of U. S. Team at M inao Junction, O. Plans are about complete for the fale-well trip of the Pittsburgh Filipinos to Mirgo Junction, O., tomorrow. rhe partv. which will be comprised of 1-, plavers and a goodly crowd of fans and several newspaper men, will leave P-tts-burgh at 12:15 p. m. over the Wabasn railroad. The baJVball park is very near the station, and immediately upon the arrival of the party at 2 o'clock the players will hustle into their uniforms. The train returning leaves Mingo Junction at 5:43 o'clock, Pittsburgh time. A flat rate of $1.5'1 for the round trip has been provided for the party, both players and fans. Slight changes in the regular lineup of the team have be-n necessary as the result of several of the regulars leav-'ng to join cams in organized baseball. In the main the team will be the fame serappv crowd that fought for tne Black sntl Gold in the United States league. The outfield will be intact, with Beswiek in left. "Red" Callahan in center, and Brown in right. Callahan, who was injured during a United States league game while sliding into second base, has practically recovered and will play the middlo garden in his inimitable way. Red Foster, the Con neilsville O. and P. leaguer, whom Phillippe signed ard wno played in the last Chicago series for the Filipinos, will be behind the bat. Johns will pitch. Fowler will play third, shifting from short to make way for Puff, the East Liberty boy who wore a Filipino uniform up to a few weeks ago. James will be at second. First base is yet a Problem. Deacon Phillippe has consented to accompany the. team and act in an advisory capacity, but has not yet given a definite promise that he will play. It is hoped that he will appear in uniform, and if he does he will be on the initial sack. A substitute has been provided for him in the person of Eees Blackstone or.d Bloom also will be with the party. The team is under an independent management for its final game. 10 Chicago V.

In oxner he's they have got to give odds. A talk witn Coach Courtney tins evening seems to strengthen the firm confidence tnat Columbia men have that the biue and white are going to carrv oft tiie challenge cup in the big event. Courtney foys: "I am willing to reiterate what I said two weeks ago tnat Cornell varsity ; not a taster combination than that of last year. Yet they are a tine rowing crew and will do credit to their Alma Mater. Really I think tnat it will take a good crew to beat them, but there are some mighty good crews here, especially those of Columbia and Syracuse." With the exception of Bowen, who.se loss from the stroke of the -Cornell e:ght this spring was a blow to Coach Courtney, the Red end White eight is the 'tine as that of last yeir which. Columbia out-rowed to the Ta'St quarter-mile wnen a weakness showed up in the boat -that certainly does not exist in the present Columbia eight. This tact alone buoys up the hopes of the Columbia followers, who feel that they have an even stronger and faster varsity than last year. There has been a great deal of talk about Syracuse in the past few days and from the betting here ton-ght the Orange crews seem to be considered a big factor in the main race. But the confidence ot Columbia even against this was shown here this afternoon when an actual bet of $10j at even money was placed by a Columbia man against Syracuse beating the Mornings.de Heights eight. Coach Rice has a tine varsity combination and it is indeed going to take a good crew to beat it. M'GOORTY NEAR WEIGHT HE MUST MAKE FOR FIGHT Vill Fight George Knockout Brown at Benton Harbor July 4. SPE,CIL TO THE PITTSBURGH POST. CHICAGO, June 2S. All doubts as to Fldooe McGoorty making the stipulated 3ns pounds at 10 o'clock on tne raorr.'.ng of Juiy 4, for his bout with George "Knockout" Brown. t Benton Harbor, Mich., were dispelled yesterday when the Badger fighter steppe,! on the scales after an hour's workout and weighed a shade over l0 pounds. McGoorty boxed four fast rounds with Joe Hemck a brother of Jack Merrick. In addition he punched the bas?, skipped the rope, and played handball. After going a day without any boxing Brown went six rounds with Walter Monlhan at Nate Lewis' gymnasium. The boxers used big gloves and went after ea;h other in earnest with the result that the Greek had a good workout. Brown is learning to hit straight instead of swinging ar.d he is sure to be a mucn more improved tighter than when he was !a.-t seen In action. Brown will leave for Benton Harbor on Monday and will complete his training in the ring which will be used for the fight. CLERKS IN THE LEAD.

Riddel at Conemaugh. Thre w-'l be some interesting conflicts today in the Railroad league and there will likely be a considerable change in the standing of some of the teams. Should Altoona succeed in winning both ends of their douhle bill and Derry lose to Freeport, the Mountaineers vill tie the leaders. A victory for Freeport and an even split for Elrama will bring Freeport up into fourth place and drop Elrama. Should Altoona loe both games while Fnion Line wins, the latter will move up into second place. A victory for Oenemaugh and a defeat for Freeport will place these two teams on equal footing for fifth place. Should Rlairsville come out victorious over West Brownsville while Conemaugh loses to Union Line, the BlairsvlUe team will have undisputed possession of sixth place. A victory for West Brownsville will bring them within a half game from Bialrsville and seventh place. It goes without paying that all the teams will be on the jump from the call of "play ball" until the conclusion of the games in order to protect or better their standing. Some red-het battles are looked for and there are indications that record crowds will be on hand at the various parks to witness the games. The Conemaugh-Union Line game will he played at the Tri-State grounds, Johnstown, and game will be called at 3 p. m. The West Brownevllle-Hlairsville game will be called at the same time. Elrama is going to Altoona strong today with the determination to land one if not both ef the contests scheduled with the Mountaineers. WANTS SHANNON BLACKLISTED.
