AUE AUTOS ANIMALS?
Corporation Counsel of New York
Says Motor Speeding Is Cruel
ty to Animals.
Automobiles are animals, according
to a recent ruling of the Corporation
Counsel of New York, and ln conse
quenco more than $5000 collected as
fines from automobillsts who exceeded
the speed limits with their machines
has been paid to the Society for the
Prevention of Cruelly to Animals.
The auto became an animal by an
act of the Legislature of 1002. which
declared it to bo a, misdemeanor to
drive autos above a certain speed. The
title of the bill was "An act to amend
Sec. C6S of the Penal Code." Xow Sec.
CCS reads: "All fines, penalties or for
feitures Imposed or collected for a vio
lation of any act for the prevention of
cruelty to animals must be paid on
demand to the American Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals."
In the other section It says: "The
word 'animal' as used In the title does
hot Include tho human race, but In
cludes every other llviny creature. The
word 'torture or 'cruelty' includes
every act, omission or neglect whereby
unjustifiable physical pain, suffering or
death Is caused or permitted."
During the year 1903 $?3S0 ln fines
was collected from automobillsts, and
$2000 Is estimated for this year, und
the S, P, C. A- demanded the money.
The Comptroller hud placed the money
in the fund for the payment of the In
terest on the city debt, and refused to
The Corporation Counsel sent a com
munication to the Sinking Fund com
mission, giving It as his opinion that
the society was entitled to the money.
The Legislature had declared auto
speeding to be cruelty to animals, and

0NJ3 pleasing feature of tho na
tional pastime heretofore over
looked Is the high literary tone
pervading the game, says the
Philadelphia North American. The field
of letters now enjoys greater represen
' tatlon in diamond affairs than at any
other period ln the history of the sport.
No less than eighteen journalists, active
and retired, are at present tangled up
1 in the baseball industry.
With all those literary gentlemen at
work ln a common cause, the game was
bound to become elevated'to Its present
lofty standard of excellence and purity.
Baseball couldn't help itself under such
conditions, and It Is pleasing to note
that the literati seldom butts into any
other sport. Occasionally a gentleman
of the press branches out as manager of
mixed-ale pugilist, hut we are glad to
know that baaaball has the preference.
Of the eighteen honored names we
hold In mind no fewer than eight have
yanked down high official positions,
such as presidents of leagues and clubs.
Others poured the Ink out of their foun
tain pens for al) time ln order to tackle
minor Jobs, and tho rest combine the
two pports baseball and lournalism
and thus work ln a double drag.
Johnson Used to "Write.
Take the main squeeze of tho whole
hunch, Byron Bancroft Johnson, presi
dent of tho American league. He used
to write up Dutch picnics at Cincinnati.
At that time Ban tolled mainly for ex
ercise, but ho managed to' pick up
enough pretzels on the side while tho
picnic lasted to keep soul and body to
gether. Now Just look at him. He Is
the blu smoke, and the whole country
Is watching which way It blows. Ban
will doubtless be ln our midst tiomc time
President Harry Pulliam of the Na
tional league in early life shins several
barrels of ink, color not stated, for a
Loulsvlllo dally. To look at him now
you never would think Harry used to
gallop around at night with a largo fire
badge skewered to his port suspender.
Most fire-chasers hang the badgo on
the outside of their coat In order to get
a reputation. But Harry hid the Insig
nia of genius on his suspender, und
only dragged It out through the arm
holo of his vest when the police held
him up at the fire lines. The National's
president belonged to the modern school
of Journalism. Smooth work was Hnr
ry's motto, and It landed him in tho big
plush chair all right.
Fire Story by' Pulliam.
The literary clubs of Louisville some
times give public readings of Mrr Pul
llarn's early word painting and graining
efforts. They flowed somewhat ln this
"At 2:15;i o'clock yesterday morning
dense volumes of smoko were seen is
suing from the distillery. An alarm
was turned In from box 27, on the south
west corner of Biff and BIng streets,
and the brave fire laddies quickly re
sponded. The scene beggared descrip
tion. Vhlle tho lurid flames leaped
heavenward athwart tho murky aky an
aqueous torrent hissed through multi
tudinous colls of piping and fell in my
riad streams upon the raging fiend un
til the walls collapsed with a deafenings
The falling walls, It is said, Invariably
filled the . fountain pen with dust and
clinkers, and clogged .the ink flow. On
that account the future president never
did finish a fire story, but what does
Harry care now?
President John I. Taylor of the cham
pion Boston club owns a newspaper in
the city of culture, poets, subways and
beans. Ho had nothing but money, and
Journalism grew repugnant to him.
Funny about that, too. The advent of
Mr. Taylor brings another John I. into
the game. Sad about the other one. be
ing forgotten so soon.
President J. Ed Grlllo of the Ameri
can association is sporting editor of a
Cincinnati paper. Besides directing the
affairs of his league, J. Ed conducts his
sporting page. Mr. Grlllo avoided the
pretzels that utrewed the early pathway
of B. Johnson In tho same town, and
enjoys his picnic later In life.
Mumano Used to Play.
.President T. H. Murnane of the Now
England league and his vice-pr.sldent,
secretary and treasurer, Jake Morse, arc
employed on Boston papers. Both arc
sporting editors of their respective jour
nals, and never fall to bay a scoop when
anything occurs in the New Ensland
league. Murnane was a crack profes

This brings us down to the umpire
end of the game, which is also involved.
"W. B. Carpenter, tho latest addition to
the American league staff, was once an
editorial writer on the Taunton, Mass.,
Evenlijg Times. Having molded public
opinion in the past, Mr. Carpenter can
not kick when tho public hands It back
to him. However, the new arbitrator
knows his business, and has no trouble.
Moreover, he has that National league

neat appearance Mr. Carpcntor's at

He wears a Norfolk Jacket and belt,
creased trousers, and an air of extreme
repose. His voice, too, penetrates to
the remote frontiers of tho baseball
During the season of 1902 Mr. Carpen
ter survived the New York State league,
where twenty-six umpires blew up. His
training In the literary field enabled Mr.
Carpenter to endure more hardship
than the other fellows. At Home, N.
Y., the patrol wagon always carried tho
umpire to and from tho park, and if the
visiting team won the players rode with
tho umpire in tho uamo wagon foe mu
tual protection. From this we Infer the
newspaper Instinct Is still strong ln
Tho late umpire, Jim Ilassett, also
dabbled ln literature. He wrote for
money. James wrote to two leagues at
the same time, and learned that the can
was mightier than the pen.
Dexter Society Editor.
Carl Green, secretary -of the Boston
Americans, was for many years a sport
writer in Chicago, and Charles Dana
Dexter won repute as society editor of
the Evansville Blotting Pad. Night af
ter night Charles Dana used to sit down
ln a Tuxedo coat and accordlan-pleated
hat, and with a short pencil write long
stories about "Among thoso present

stead of bats, but that's all lh the game.
First Baseman Cnur'es Carr of l.'e
trolt at one time worked for newspa

he Is now trying to live down tho past.
Whether he wrote thiigs or chased
cockroaches out of the paste pot Is
something Charles will not divulge him
self. And as ho seems sincere ln the
desire to forget his early career it would
be unkind to probe the past.
Just the same we are proud of our es

TALES ON FOOTBALL
NEW HAVEN, Conn., April 29.
When tho football rules committee
meets to act on possible changes In the
rules for next season It will recelvo sug
gestions " from F. H. Yost, who has
coached the University of Michigan
with such remarkable success. Mr.
Yost Is quoted as saying that his sug
gestions for changes in the rules were
as follows: "The most Important legis
lation to be considered by tho rules
committee is In regard to rule IS, which
governs the disposition of the men. This
rule should permit the use of cither six
or seven men on the line of scrimmage
between the twenty-flve-yard lines. If
this rulo reads about as follows, it
would make a much better gamo for
both spectators and players:
"Six men, at least, must be on the line
of scrimmage at all times, but If seven
men are on tho line of scrimmage be
tween tho twenty-flve-yard lines, then
the first man receiving the ball from
the center or snapperback, may carry It
beyond the line, provided he goes out
side the second man on the line from
tho man who put the ball ln play.
"Rule 25 C reads: Tho holder of the
ball and no other player ln any place
kick may be off side or out of bounds
without vitiating the kick.
"This rule does not permit a place
kick to be made from a scrimmage play
from the play. It should be changed so
that it would permit a place kick from
a scrimmage play.
"The value of a field goal should
count four points. It Is not fair that a
side which has made a touchdown
should be tied by a team making a field
goal, yet a team that has made two
field goals should win over one that has
scored but one touchdown. The rule
stating that If a team attempt a goal
from field on first down Inside tho
twenty-five-yard line tho opponents
must kick out from behind the ten-yard
line, which was made to encourage goal
kicking, but It never did, as a team will
always try to make Its distance If pos
sible when approaching Its opponents'

Tho meet next Saturday will be tho , I

For some years past the different col

ing was called and arrangements per- lfl
fected for a threo-cornered meet be- 1 1 ,
tween tho Salt Lake, Ogden and Park
City High schools. The date agreed IH
upon was May 11. Later All Hallows 1 IH

evinced a desire to participate in the '
contest and it is likely that these schools . ) i '
will be permitted to enter teams ln the , i

RUBBER ROADS IN LONDON 'V it
People Like to Rido Over Them, but - ,s I
1 Their Cost Is Too Great. ;, j ! '
The rubber road which was recently laid 1 ' I '
under tho archway at Buckingham palaco H
hus proved a splendid success In tho call- ,t
matlon of many. Several othor private ' , ' 1
roads in London wero also laid with this ' 1 H
material and tho experiment has brought i H
forth tho proposal that London should bo . ' H
made a city of sllenco by paving tho ronds i ,
with India rubber. It Is estimated by cx- ',' H
ports, however, that tho ochomo is too 1 H
costly, as for ovory squaro yard of rub- H
bcr-covorcd roadway tho ratepayers would j IH
huvA to pay 315. H
"Rubber roads aro hopolcss." said the , H
London manager of an American llrm of ': i H
rubber tilers. "No public authority would ' H

of such a costly undertaking-. In spite of H
