S k e t c h o t a l r a k p i in h e in o no to o k by n m c him Loii it a Jum per the famous indoor High jumping record of a. Byrd Page of the University of Pennsylvania has been eclipsed by a Brooklyn . Since de Cember 10,1887, imn Diede of athletes through out the United states have essayed to Clear Tho bar in indoor perform Aaroen at six feet but with one exception they have hopelessly failed. The record of Tho College High jumper was supposed to to Tho greatest height that would Ever be cleared in indoor Competition. The Best judges of athletes nil at the time that Tho world Waajid never Geo a jumper that could equal Page and the history of his life has been an Oft repeated tale in Amateur at Bietico sport. Page in Early childhood is said to have been a cripple and according to doctors urd ors when he be came Strong enough he took to outdoor of Ercilio and especially to High jumping in order to strengthen his lower limbs. How he built up a Strong Constitution and the stories of his Assidio ou3 practice at Bis favorite pastime Are Well known. That a Brooklyn athlete should be the first to outdo pages great performance is appropriate As this City at the present Day can Lay claim to having a quartet of the Best High jumpers in the country in Nicker so no a Llo cd r i t c h a r d and Stokum. The pres ent Holder of the worlds indoor rec Ord ill High jump ing is Alyah Nick Erson the popular athlete of this City. He a 21 years of age and Baucia 0 feet inches in height and when in con d i t to n w Eig h s about 100 pounds. The first athletic games in which Nickerson com � Peter were those held under the auspices of Tho Nautilus boat club on february 21, 1s8s. A t this time he was a Mere Novice in Tho Art of High jump ing yet he gained third prize against a number of Tho leading men in that event. He i cleared Tho bar at 5 feet 5 inches. In the fail of Tho same year he competed in the games Given under Tho auspices of Yale College at new Haven and Defeated the boat athlete that a number of Trio College could turn out and also the crack High jumpers of All the Large organizations of now York. On october 11, 1889, to won Tho High jumping contest in the games of the Orange ath Letic club and seven Days later Wai fourth in the champions help contests which were held at travers Alan i. Nickerson cleared 5 feet 7 inches but was Defeated by Pritchard Hallock and Ford. On february 22. 1889. He also won the High jumping contest in the games of the naut Lifs boat club. During the sea soil of 1800 Nickerson gradually improved in Bis form and style of jumping and by careful study and patient practice succeeded in increasing his record. On february 14, 18d0, he was placed on Woratch at the games of the forty seventh regiment in this City. There was a Large Field of competitors and in order to win Nickerson had to endure a Long and continued struggle. To finally captured Tho prize by Clearing 6 feet 8 inches. Tho next event in which he competed was in the games of the new York athletic club of october 1, which he won by jumping 6 feet 0 inches. On october 11 the championship contests took place at Washington and in these he competed under the colors of Tho new York athletic club. Tho other contestants were Pritchard the Amateur Champion High jumper at that time Morse and Long the crack Eastern Atli letes who wore counted on by their Boston friends to capture first and second places Hallock the powerful Little All round athlete who wore Trio Cherry Diamond Emblem. Pritchard won the contest by jumping 5 feet 10 inches and it was allowed that a much greater height would have been cleared but for the poor condition of the take off. Hallock gained second place. The indoor games of the season of 1800 then commenced and Nickerson trained hard to get in Good condition. In the eighth regiment game.5he won first prize by Clearing 6 feet 11 inches and repeated the performance at the Twenty third regiment games in this City on no vember 20. The saudi captor then began to pile on the agony and the Brooklyn jumper was snowed under by a crowd of second rate men who could not Clear any better than 5 feet 4 or 5 Iii his. In the Staten Island athletic club games on november 29 to jumped .5 feet inches but ouly gained third prize. In the Vanina boat club games to cleaved the bar at 5 feet 1054 inc Lich and won another third prize. On Decem Ber 29 he won first prize in Tho ninth regime it games by Clearing 5 feet 9 4 Iuo lies and captured first modal at the Prospect harriers games pm december 31 by jumping 5 feet 9% inches. At the games of the seventy first regiment of new York Nickerson jumped 5 feet l l a in Cush which at that time wan considered Pheu Monal. It was not until saturday week that Nickerson was Able to accomplish a fac that has been the shining Sal of All the Amateur High jumpers and that was to equal pages record. Nioko Raon succeeded in accomplishing this at Tho games of har Vard ool Joge. The collegians turned out in Force and it was distinctly understood than a attempt would to made by fearing to lower pages record. Fearing cleared 5 feet 11 Mehes As did also Nickerson Haywood Aud Green. Tho bar was then placed at 0 feet m Inch and the three famous jumpers then braced themselves to Clear this height. All failed on Tho first trial. In Tho second attempt Nickerson cleared the bar touching it As he went Over but not enough to dislodge it. Nicker songs style is very Graceful. To jumps without any Effort Aud seems to Fly Over Tho bar they went to bed.

A party of Moo go term a a says a dispatch from Eunis county Glare last night attacked the House occupied by Michael Fitzgerald near that town. The police however surprised the Moon lighters and tired upon them. Tho result was that one of Tho Moon lighters was shot and fatally wounded while All of the Moonlight party Wei a Tho Amateur oarsmen May he seen on surrounding ? Waters what the various clubs Are going to do during the summer during Tho past week Thoro has Boon signs of activity in and around Tho boat houses on Tho Bayl bulge Shore. The Large float stages which have been lying on Tho Beach All Tho Winter have been thoroughly overhauled and after receiving the usual Coats of tar they Are now ready to be placed in position for the season. If Tho weather permits to Day will witness Largo numbers of the oarsmen afloat in gigs Neils and barges enjoying their first practice spin. The season will be a most Active one in aquatic sports As Groat interest has already been manifested among the oarsmen and arrangements have already been concluded for a a umber of interesting events. The Brooklyn clubs will chose their strongest and Best oarsmen to rep resent them in Tho Early Spring regattas. The most interesting event of the Early rowing Aea Bon is Tho regatta of Tho Passaic River rowing association to to held on decoration Day. It u to this event that the oarsmen flock in great num Bers and Tho races have always proved interest ing in Tho extreme. Tho contests Promise to prove of unusual interest this year As All the Best oarsmen of this City Harlem Boston Phila Delphia Aud elsewhere will compote Tho Brook Lyn contingent will be made up of Crews from the Yanin to Nautilus sea Wachaka Ravenswood and probably Tho crop cent clubs. In Many instances new boats have been Pur chased during the Winter and the Brooklyn crows will Start in Tho races equipped equal to any in Tho country. Tho Yamuna boat club has Pur chased a Largo Stock of new boats and will turn out a larger number of oarsmen than any other organization in this Vicinity. That Captain Tigho has been wide awake during the Winter Mouths is apparent when it is known that Bobu Mak ing extensive plans for Tho rowing men. Tho one thing that a Brooklyn oarsman has had to con tend with is the Lack of a proper course of prac timing with shells. That Bay Ridge Shore is not adapted for training has become apparent and although the Brooklyn oarsmen have outstripped the smooth water crows in Many an aquatic struggle it was Only extra hard work Aud Groat physical strength that brought them across Tho line winners in Many Large events. Captain Tighe thinks to has at last succeeded in solving the question of practice ing for races Aud has already made arrangements for the location of a training House at Sheepshead Bay where smooth water can be obtained at All times. A one Story Structure will to erected at a Point Congo Lieut to the Railroad depot and in Lofia than a month the Crews of the club will to working Bard for the decoration Day races. Tho location of the boat House will be at a Point Junit at the Mouth of Coney Island Creek where it flows into Sheepshead Bay. A course of about one and one half Miles can be obtained but it is not a Straightaway and could not be used for racing purposes on account of a Atrip of land which i juts out making it Impo Siblo to Lay out a straight course. Tho place will however be a Model one for training Crews and if the Varuna is colors Are not carried across the finish like ahead in a Largo number of events this season it will not to Boca Uso they have not the facilities for training. Heretofore Brooklyn have been compelled to journey daily to harlot or Passaic in order to obtain Good water on which to train for Randi. Tho effects of rowing at Harlem and Pas Saio have always been Felt by the Brooklyn men. And oftentimes within a week of Tho races Tho Crew would to taken with a slight attack of malaria Wlinich would incapacitate Thorn for a hard struggle. The course at Shoeps Hoad Bay. Beside by ing smooth at All Tomeh is open to Tho sea breezes and the Salt air and Surro tidings com Bine to make it an Ideal training course. It will Only be a Quost iou of a few year.? when everyone of Tho local boat clubs will to compelled to relinquish the places they now hold and the March of Commerce will drive them All below fort Hamilton Tho next available Loca Tion is ahem behead Bay and it a Probach that in less than five years every one of Tho Brooklyn club will Havo their housed on Tho shores of either Coney Island facing Sheepshead or on the Mainland facing the Ocean. The club Fleet of Tho Yamuna boat club will be greatly increased within a week or two when the builders who Havo been fortunate enough to receive orders for Choice racing Craft will de liver Tho boats. Blake of Boston is overhauling a Ruddick double Shell which Captain Tighe purchased when at Yor Coster. The club also four cared Shell from of Troy. The new Shell is of Tho latest design measuring 41 feet in Lengli and living 19 inched Boain with Tho carrying lines Well for Ward and aft of the cockpit. Kernst now swivel warlocks will be muted to Tho boat and she will be rigged with Fine French steel . She will be one of the lightest and still est that has Ever been turned out by Waters Aud promises in every was to is a Model i acing Craft. A four cared racing Barge is be ing built for the club by a Liao of Boston. The Craft will be of the working boat class and will be designed and built of the lightest mate rial. She will be rigged with sliding seats and Davis Patent warlocks. The carrying capacity of the boat will to Only five p2r.son.s and her lines will to formed for shift rowing. Tho boat will be named Tho John Courtney As sheriff court Ney who has been for Somo time a prominent member of the dub and one that has always been greatly inter item in seeing the club colors brought to the front by its plucky Young oars men has the Craft to the club. A new eight cared Barge will be ordered in a few Days and Captain Tighe is hustling around to get p., boat builder who will Turu out a fast rough water Barge in a Short time. The Nautilus boys have already to pro pare for the season and a new four cared Shell Haa been Milb by Waters of Troy for their use. Captain Waring a very sanguine of the Hue Cesh of the club in racing this season and expresses conic Rhone in Tho ability of the. Young athletes to win Back Tho pre Arige Wlinich this organization held a . A Junior four cared Crow will be formed in about a week and from indication a very Strong team will be got together. Arthur Prentiss Tho powerful All rom id athlete and the stroke of the Junior Crew of 1889, which gave Tho Fant Yamuna Junior Crew such a close race for the e a o of. Cup will occupy tie stroke seat. Joseph , a tall and Strong Young Junior , will Row in seat no. 3, and will Carndley who also rowed in a Junior four cared Crew will Row in no. 2 seat.
