New-Haven Paper Tells Vale to
Break with Tigers.
JUV XSX4CUUVH TO THE TRIIU Nf :. 1
New-Haven. Conn.. June 2. -The result of the
tactics of Princeton in Bending Davis, their heavy
hitter, to the bat with three on bases, Instead pi
Welles, in last Saturday's championship Kumo. and
of their protesting Tale's victory on the ground
that the umpiro was wrong in declaring Welles
out, came to-night in a scorching review of the
Question in "The Xew-Haven Kvenlng Register,"
in both editorial and news columns, in which the
Yale athletic leaders are advised to break oft alto
gether with Trinceton in basoball for this year.
"The Register" says in a leading editorial:
The real question confronting the Yale athletic
ninnaßers is whether they shall not now cancel
the remaining games with Pilnceton before the
pretest is decided. Here is a chance to enforce
what should be the ath'etlc policy of lalo. H
does not matter a bit whether what Princeton did
was within the technical rules or not. The at
tempt to substitute a strong batsman out of place
was a trick unworthy of intercollegiate athliJcs.
and should be met on mornl grounds alone by tne
cancellation of the remaining schedule. That
would clear the air amazingly and raise high the
standard of amateur sportsmanship.
"The Register" is recognized as the leading Yale
organ among Connecticut newspapers. In another
column "The Register" sfeys:
Yala alumni and undergraduates are uniting In
demands that the university baseball management
refu.se to continue relations with Princeton if the
protest filed by the Tigers relative to Saturday s
game be allowed to stand. They claim that Prince
ton, by a contemptible trick, tried to send a "ring
er" up to the bat in place of the proper batsman,
and that when Yale discovered the trick and asked
the umpire to inflict the proper penalty, if there
was a slight technicality at the time th* trick was
discovered, the Tigers try to turn the situation to
their advantage by asking- that Yale's victory be
thrown out on a technical ruling.
The Yale baseball management know that Prince
ton worked a similar trick on Harvard in the gp.nie
at Cambridge, and the circumstances in the game
here last Saturday show that Princeton deliberate
ly tried to send up two wrong batters against Yftle.
Yale men think that it w&s bad enough for Prince
ton to try these tricks without trying to get
Yale's victory thrown out because of them, ana
the acts of Princeton will stand as unfavorable
precedents for future Yale-Princeton athletic rela
tions. , ._ . ,
If the protest of Captain Pearson should be al
lowed to stand, It would indicate that there Is no
penalty which can be sure of being enforced for
an act of trickery and dishonesty in changing the
batting order or the score in the game.

the treaty, when endeavors are being made to
adopt the Nlcar^uan route, is equivalent to a
decree of definitive ruin to the Is thmus us in*
irreparable evil and giving origin to anti-patri
It seems that the people of the Isthmus have
at last awakened to the fact that unless power
ful influences are exerted the enemies of the
canal will win the battle. Rlcardo Arias, one of
the leading citizens, nas started the movement
with a forcible article, in which he points out
that the Hay-Herran treaty Is the only solu
tion to the most arduous problem that has ever
presented Itself to Colombian diplomacy. The
honorable character of the contracting parties,
he says leaves no other supposition but that
Colombian sovereignty will not be Impaired.
Sefior Arias continues by explaining th:it the
treaty gives to Colombia the means to profit by
her enviable geographical position, and the only
means of developing her war and merchant
navy which, by investing the government with
respect and stability, will lead to the exploita
tion of the country's natural wealth. The treaty
will thus solve the great problem of public
peace. With the canal Colombia will be the first
republic of South America: without it. those stUl
having energy must solve the dilemma for them
selves Thus, concludes Sefior Arias. Congress
must choose between the canal or the emigra
tion of thousands oi people.
Thousands of copies of this article will be dis
tributed through the republic.

Vienna, June 2.— The entire garrison of Agram.
capital of Croatia, which haa been in a dis

clear the streets of rioters yesterday. The
trouble was started by the refusal of a small
crowd to disperse. The police thereupon fired in
the air, as a signal that they required reinforce
ments, and the people, misunderstanding the ac
tion of the police, bombarded them with stones.
The police then attacked the crowd with drawn
sabres. A number of persons were injured and
