[from answers to correspondents] In the match between Athletics and Atlantics at Philadelphia, A–after receiving score by telegraph–bets B that the Athletics would win the game. B accepts the bet and puts up money, then accuses A of knowing what the score was before betting. A denies knowing the score, at first, but afterwards acknowledges that he knew the score. Can he claim the stakes? B claimed it was a draw, on account of his denying that he knew the score and afterwards acknowledging he did. ... If A did not use any deceit before the bet was made then he wins.
