As matters now- stand, tho leaguo
seems b.ully ort In tho mat

simply t hao such plajers from tho
arlous teams as tho captains select

those who heard the concr- lnlnd Is known, by every reasonable
fallen that Albright was to be re-J deduction, to be perfectly frco from
laincii rigai inrougu, umpinag
piit of every game, ns official umpire.
With this In view, and conslilcrini
tho fact that tho plan had been trlcl
hero before, nnd was nverrcd by leag
iiem to liavo been a success at that
any leaning to one way or tho othc;
of such nuestlrns ns may nrlse,
Apropos the niiluro of tho appoint
ment of Steele nnd Albright, Frank
Thompson stated jeslerday afternoon
that he understood tho nppolntmcnta
time, the uctlon taken was commend- wore official, and Stcere's resignation

Yesterday afternoon, It became ap
parent that Albright was to be In
LluJcd In this elective rRtun.
Albright Is one o" tho most tapahla
baseball men In this city, and the fact
that after n public appointment, ho
l'nd been Included in tho sweeping
change, euch im It was, In sillo of
umpiring ,o which neither public nor

was tho causo of somo Indignation.

JuBt tho authority upon which it
Is dcclnrcd that thero was no official
appointment Is not clear, as Pat and
romnndez were appointed to select
two umpires for tho league, officially,
and It seems that tho men des
ignated by a committee acting under
such Instructions could not liavo been

that Pat's statement csterday

LONDON, Hng, July 24. It
would lie no exaggeration In tho
minds of any of tho 100,000 specta

struggle of tho Marathon laco at tho
Olvmplc arena today to say that It
was tho most thrilling athletic event
that has occurred since that Mara
thon race In undent Cicecc. whero
tho victor fell at tho goal and, with
a wave of triumph, died.
Tod i)' the Italian, Dornndo, tot

assisted by officials ot tho games.
Then ho collnpaod, was carried from

paid with his life for his gamoncss.
Hut tho iibslstanca given him nt tho
end cost him the coveted victory und

American, Haves, who came to the
goal on hl3 own lcg3.
Tho veteran athletes or Europe,

liavo seen tho greatest sttuggles ot
every sort on land and water for ath
letic supremacy declared that thoro
was nothing comparable to the great
race today within their memories or
In tho other Olympiads since tho
modern cyclo of theso began.
