Atlantic Telegraph (Newspaper) - May 9, 1888, Atlantic, Iowa The Telegraph May How the race horse interest has developed in a wonderful records the Outlook for enormous increase in primes during the special april the july num Ber of the quarterly published in one of the most charming of English sporting wrote it is in the now that to in that racing the consequent improvement of hones Are making the most rapid Progress much As from the excellent Choice the americans make of their stud to incline some persons to the opinion that in Tho course of half another Century we shall have to go to Tho United states to replenish our own which must do generate if that of the most sound and most enduring Quality is transported to that when parole and subsequent to his time the Groat Iroquois and the Peerless pox Hall achieved their triumphs in England our British cousins were and some of the shrewdest observers of signs of the times be Gan to see Tho handwriting on Tho Wall in their but unfortunately for the glory of the american race horse the enterprising Pierre Lorillard and James Keene did not go on with then work of invasion for the reason that in the meanwhile Tho opportunities of making Rac ing profitable at Home had grown so much in number and value that owners no longer saw Tho necessity of a foreign expedition to gain adequate glory or financial How rapidly the american turf has grown May Best to judged by a comparison of the returns in the turf guides in 1877 and in ton years ago the total number of races re ported for Tho season was of which 82t were on the 45 Over hurdles and 35 the total value of All including added Money to was now in 1887 the amount of Money alone the clubs in the shape of purses and added Money to stakes amounted to a sum that does not include a single piece of plate or other object of value outside of actual nor Tho Entrance to excesses Over entered Price in Selling races included in the returns of with this amount the figures for 1887 reach the grand total of More than was won in England in 1887 and within a fraction of of the entire amount won in Ireland and in other the figures show an increase of More than a million and a half in ten but this increase is nothing to what Tut returns of 1888 will the Monmouth Park which last year furnished a total of to be raced already offers Over for the ensuing and by Means of special

offers for 1883 already exceed and it is almost a certainty that its actual donations by the end of the season will surpass the Brooklyn jockey club in 1887 Hung up its offers this year will exceed the Veteran american jockey the most conservative of the racing Asso and which for years Back has made it rather a Point not to increase the value of purses or added Money to in 1887 furnished a total of for eighteen Days of this year it will be under entirely new which will be actuated by the modern progressive and As it will have to enter upon Strong Competition with younger it is fair to presume that by Tho end of the coming racing season to will have contributed fully 75 per cent More to the prizes of the american Assoc a the Western associations Are keeping right on increasing the value of purses and added Money to As Well As lengthen ing their so much so is this Extension of meetings contemplated that there will be several serious clashes in the Way of dates this the most notable being that Between Louis and it is impossible in the space of a Brief Arti Cle like this to More than allude to the proportionate increase of the value of the Breed ing where ten years ago hundreds of

climatic advantages they have it is easy to see that it simply a question of a very Short time before they will accomplish their How the Speed of the american race horse has been developed May Best be judged by a glance at Tho new records made in a carrying 110 lowered Tho time for three quarters of a mile to this record was at on anything but a fast at seven Dwyer Brothers 3year ran it in at

races a horse is now called upon to return the number of contests beyond a mile and a and Tho number of starters for such events Are getting fewer and and be it remembered that these records were made

the in the american association the Brooklyn is much stronger than it was last the prospects Are that the leading association clubs will keep closer together this season than they did and of will make matters More Brooklyn great there is no doubt whatever that the Brook Lyn club has in Trobert Caruthers one of the greatest pitchers in the Hocer mainly deserves that title among the Ameri can association Caruthers release from the Louis club come but the Brooklyn needed his and consid ered him cheap at any the men have gone upon the Field with the utmost Confidence both in themselves and in his ability to deceive the opposing Caruthers if gets no matter How Bard an opposing team May Bat his pitching in one inning he will go in on the next with As much Confidence As though they had not Mode a hit in the preceding in to this cause As much As to any other can much of his great Success be Caruthers is a native of but was reared in where he first Learned to play Ball he is not a Large but is Well developed for his he commenced to play Ball with Amateur clubs in Chicago when quite Al most from Tho Start he showed a marked his great desire was to become a and he at once went to work with a will to Mas Ter the he gamed his reputation As a Pitcher in while with the Minneapolis it was while pitching for that club that president von Der Ahe heard of and when that club disbanded the genial Chris signed him for the celebrated Louis it was in the fall of that same year that Bobby made a Good impression on von Der Ahe and the Louis and foreshadowed the great work he would accomplish the following his wonderful work during the sea sons of with the Louis in helping to win the championship of the american has made him famous in every portion of the Globe where the National game of baseball is Caruthers bos a very deceptive combined with considerable he has also a faculty of using his head in studying the weak Points of each which helps to make his pitching besides he is a Brilliant a Fine batsman and an excellent base he is also a reliable every Day his since he joined the american has not been surpassed by any other at the beginning of this season Caruthers made a demand for his release from the Louis but it was refused it was thought that he was Only but it was not Long before president von Der Ahe found out that Caruthers was in and that be meant what he said when he told him that he would not play with the Louis club this it was then that von Der Ahe began to listen to the propositions made by the Brooklyn and when a suitable figure was named the Deal was As Caruthers is an intelligent gentleman As Well As a first class Boll player he is wherever to he has already made Many friends in the City of new Yorks Star Timothy of the new York is undoubtedly one of the Best pitchers in the profession he does not simply rely upon the number of curves or the great Speed that the Ball can be sent Over Tho but like any other makes a study of each Batman who comes up in front of with a full knowledge of All the arts of his he tries to deceive that and his record of the Post half dozen Yean or More will Tell How Well he has Keefe is without question the Superior of All pitchers when it comes to twirling the and that is All that can be asked of any being perfect in one position is far better than trying to till half a dozen others and making a failure of Timothy Keefe was born in like All other men of Bis he began playing Ball with Amateur his first clubs were in the Vicinity of it was seen almost from the first game he played that he had the making of a famous Ball it was until the season of 1875 that he made Bis professional during that year he played with the in 1876 he was signed with the our boys of but the next found him installed in the Westboro Keefe began the season of 1878 with the Clin but finished the season in he remained with the Utica until they were Gible to be that rip will soon be forgotten by either Keefe or nor in by Mutrie As the trip was stamped upon his memory by the american to which the mets fining him for Tho trick he played on the rest of his co whether the change front the american association to the National league had any effect on Keefe is not but it is cer Tain Keefe has kept on steadily improving until he is now As near perfection As any Man can get who undertakes to master the Art of pitching a Ball Keefe can play a very Good game in the although he cannot be called a Brilliant As he is not very Fleet he play a Good game at first and in Case of on emergency could give satisfaction on the initial Keefe is not what might be called a reliable but when he does happen to meet the Ball squarely he sends it on a Long Mission to the then again he cannot be classed with such men As Ward or Ewing in running the of the Detroit says Keefe in my one of the great est pitchers that Ever tossed the he has a slow drop Ball that puzzles the batsman and no other Pitcher seems to be Able to get then he has the same easy and deliberate movement for his Swift Ball that he has while pitching his drop this is puzzling to the and makes Keefe a wonderful his slow Ball keeps a coming All the yet it seems As though it will never reach the Home while the Swift delivered in the same passes Over the plate like a i certainly think the new York club possesses a rare jewel in Tim Keefe is considered one of the handsomest men in the besides being easy and Graceful in his and special new May six Days walk ing which will take place Here next beginning the promises to be a bigger affair than the one
