For fifty- five minutes the pair locked horns, standing on their feet, exchanging a series head and. arm holes, and occasionally attempting a trick or two that ended in nothing. "When they eventually did 50 down, it was only a matter of Taylor secur- ing a Rood hold, and it was all off with After attacking Wasem front_the rear, Taylor secured a wrist liold, iThich he was successful ia turn- ing into a hammerlock, which did the irick after a game struggle on the part Wasem. Tile second fall was secured with a grip identical with the first in every particular. After Taylor had won the first fall ihe wrestlers rested for fifteen min- utes Tvent at it again.

THs Sneaker of the Sox outclasses either man that McGraw can send to the centre garden further than any man on either team outclasses his rival in the position. The chances are a hundred to one that, barring accident, McGraw will choose Snodgrass to play the position, although there ia a chance thai he may use Beals Becker during part of the series, either in centre or in lett, HI he did so.

Speaker in Ty Cobb Class This, should not be construed as a "knock" on or against Snodgrass, vvlio gave way to Taylor's demands, though there was noi'bing in ihelr agreement to force him to do so. There also some trouble in se- curing a referee. Finally John Berg "was persuaded io act, and he refereed entire satisfaction. Berg, before rhc match, challenged both the winner of die bout, and Kid Eckland-for a match for a bet of which will probably be accepted, and a niatch arranged.

In figuring the men in base run- ning, hitting, fielding, throwing and generalship, in ground covering and ability to play the position with head as well as. with hands and feet, I have figured Speaker at 7S, the high- j est of any of the outfielders of either team, while Sncdgrass I have found j ing tbe Giant team you will find that the outfield work is rather ragged in that respect. Too many balls get through for three and four bases that should be cut off at two by fast cover- ing nnd quick retrieving. At that, Snodgrass retrieves rapid- ly, and he is a strong and much im- proved thrower. Plis fault in throw- ing has been largely lack of direc- tion, but he can get tbe ball back to the infield from The centre "field wall on the Polo grounds about as .quickly as any man-can and heave it to the infield without a relay. Speaker in Class by Himself Speaker is almost in a class by him- self in goins out after fly balls. Ex- cept Cobb, he is the beat fielder In th-3 business, especially going out, and he ran come in almost as fast as can Cobb. He thro'wg perfectly and with great speed and accuracy, the only fault being that the ball sometimes lakes Englisii when it hits the grass .aud shoots, making it difficult for the 'catcher to handle.

SKATING AT1AKE Aquatic Association Has Excellent'Plans for Ice Sports A meeting of the Aquat- ic association is called by Commodore Mclnenly, at 'Mr. T. 0. Rldpath's store on Sixth street South, where a hockey club will be started amongst the members, and it is expected that a senior, intermediate and junior team will be arranged for. It is also hoped that all who are interested in skating lie can not hit fast curve pitching, will arrange to become members at and that a good spit ball stops him. Bender had him swinging his head oft at fast high ones last fall. Snodgrass gets ,away well, once. The association eypccta to have some good evening sports on the lake this winter, and a rink will lie made goes and lit up with electric lights, having fast, but throws himself awkwardly I benches and dressing rooms. There taward bases, due to his long striding style of running. Last fall he made two bad breaks in chopping down Frank Bakei' twice at third. Some said it was awkward- ness. Jt wasn't. He was ordered to jump at Baker and ho expecting to hurt the third haseman, but expecting that Baker would run away. The National league clubs had heard that Baker would doge spikes and perhaps Snodgrass was as sur- prised as any one when he cut Bak- er, He will have a lot of chances to cut people this fall, as the Boston infield is no reason 'why this cannot be kept going until March. There are som-e good hockey players, and the material to make a great many more, here. The association at present has about one hundred and twenty-fite members, who are of the right kind, and with a first-class street car service, and the support of the citizens hockey and skating should be a great success at the lake. It is hoped that the clubhouse- will be got .underway soon, and it will be put in use this winter.
