Fall Meeting "VJll Bo Held In
Philadelphia.
Bailhuoic, Feb. 27. The remaining frag
ments of work of the baseball magnates
were disponed of this afternoon and they
adjourned until the spiing meeting.
The invitation or Mr. Reach, of Phila
delphia, to hold the regular lall meeting
or theleague.in the Quaker City was unan
imously accepted. Chris Von tier Aim was
recognized by Chahman Soden, and tpoke
at considerable length of the beauties of
St. Louis as a winter result and extended
a warm invitation to the league to hold the
schedule meeting next year in St. I ouis.
"Der Poss" was leceived with rapturous
applause, and almost befoie he had le
sumed his beat it was unanimously de
cided to meet in the Mound City a year
hence
Petitions from a number of umpires ask
ing for additional remuneration were laid
before the meeting. They were rerrred
to President Young, with instructions to
use bis discretion in the matter. It is un
derstood thac the petitioi.s came from the
three oldest and best umpires on the staff.
The contract for live years with Sporting
Lire, expired in January. .Messrs. llynie,
Rogers and Hart were appointed a com
mittee to consider tlte advisability of re
newing the deal, or of selecting another
publication as the official organ. It is
probable that Editor Richler's journal will
continue to be the mouthpiece of the Na
tional League.
The live topic of today, the report of
the committee "To devise means to con
trol umpires," was then taken up. It
proved to be one of the most lively themes
of the meeting. Amendment after amend
ment to the report was offered until Secre
tary Young was compelled to call the game
to catch up.
Alter straightening out matters, the re
port was adopted. Col. John B. Bay's
salary as supervising inspector of umpires
and players, was fixed at 2,000 per an
num. He is to report to President Young
and any. recommendation he may make
will be acted upon by the president.
liffoie a linal adouiii:nent a "vote of
tnanks was tendered Pres.dunt l'oinig for
the faithful and conscientious manner in
which he had presided over the league
affairs, and as a fin titer and more sub
stantial testimonial of the appreciation
In which "Uncle Nick" It held by the
pioprietors of baseball lie was tendered
an increase of calaiy or $1,000 per annum.
The 1 oaid of directors took an inning
after the league adjourned. It was de
cided to have throe suited director' meet
ings during the playing season. The
dates selected for the coining year were
April 12, June 1-i and August 0. The
case or Pitcher W. F. HulchiFon, rer
merly of Ciiicago, and later with the
Minneapolis team, who was drafted by
Yon der Alie "was disposed of by declaring
the claim of St. Louis valid, and "Willie
Bill" will wear the liiown's uniform
during the coming season. The directors
then adjourned to meet in New York
on April 12.

Manager-Captain Oliver Tebenu of Cleve
land explains how lie gained the plain
and very positive sobriquet of "Pat.'
He says: "When I was a five-year-old
kid, about a half mile from where "we
lived in St. Louis was a place then called,
as it is now, Kerry Patch. My dad
bought me a toy wagon and a shovel.
Now, I had noticed a lot or Hibernians
digging in Kerry Patch, and nothing would
do me but that 1 had to trotoer there
with my wagon and shovel and start to
work. They were a good-natured lot of
men and took to the Joke ot the thing.
You should have seen my mother size
me up when I came home, mud rrom head
to foot. I was also rull or dignity, amW
ordered my supper liko a working man.
Next day I asked ror my dinner In a pall
and the folks humored me. I have been
happy many times iu my life, but never
so much so as when I started to work
with my shovel on my shoulder and draw
ing behind me the little red wugon loaded
with my dinner pall. Every day I
shoveled away and knocking off at noon
to eat my dinner with the workmen.
George, when he'd see me coming home,
wouul say: "Here comes Pat from ids
digging.' Everybody got to calling me
Pat, and Pat I am to this day. It was
wiille I worked at digging that I learned
to speak Irish neil gc Jlbben, faugh a
ballagh, tausha gaumaugh."
Manager Sclimelz stated to The Times
representative at Baltimore Thursday that
had Selbach's hands not been toughened in
the palm by gymnasium work the injury
Inflicted to them by the Are would have
resulted seriously, and in all probability
would have enforced his retirement from
the game Fortunately, however, the skin
wtis thick and callous by reason of practice
on the horizontal bar and rings, and the
"Geiiuan ambassador," as a consequence,
escaped -permanent disability. Sclimelzsays
Stlbach's hands looked like at rare beef
steak for a few flays, but that the burns
had now healed completely, and no appre
hension need be felt for him at all Tho
"Baron'' is due to arrive in Washington in
time to witness the inauguration.
J. Earl Wagner and Gus Schmelz were
chatting in the Rennert Thursday, when
the former mentioned in a tone of fatherly
pride that his boy baby was growing to
be a "great big fellow." Gus followed
with the iemark that he had a seveutcen-year-old
youngster at home (Columbus;
whom ne would no more put on the gloves
with than Corbctt or Fitz. Then Gus
chuckled and smoothed the gray hairs
in his Tan Dyke.
Scrappy Joyce. Jimmy Rodgers, Tommy
Dowd and Jack Doyle were sitting around
tho mahogany at the Renneitin Baltimore
"fanning" at a lively rate as they dis
cussed apolinaris and smoked perfectos.
The conversation turned on "Dad" Clarke,
the comical pitcher of the Giants. Doyle
told this one: "When 1 was captain of
the New Yorks Dad got a jag on one day,
and after losing a game which he at
tempted to pitch President Freedman
called him into the business office of the
Polo G rounds. 'What was the matter with
yon, today, Dad?' inquired Freedman, as
Clarke shambled over the threshold of
the magnate's sanctum. 'Xothin'; only I
had that Tallahassee feeling.' 'Talla
hassee feeling?' questioned Freedman,
'what do you mean by that?' 'Same as
we had on that ship you sent us to Tloridy
on last spring,' replied Dad, 'and say,
it is something awful.' ' Youlook the pa it,'
said Freedman, 'and 1 am going to fine
you $100.' 'Does it go?' anxiously in
quired Dad. 'Yes, sir,' said Freedman,
'and, more, if I see you Taliahasseelng
again I'll double the dose.' However, the
the fine wasn't collected,'' concludedDoyle.
"Freedman laughed so heartily over
Dad's Tallahassee talk that his good
nature forbid the infliction. Tallahassee
was the name of the steamer on which
we went to Floilda for our spring prac
tice, and everyone of us had a horrible
case ot seasickness; hence Dad's witty
reference."
In the opinion of J. Earl Wagner and
President "Jim" Hart of the Chicago
club, the three "headiest" pitchers In
the league are Griffith of Chicago, Maul
of Washington and Nichols of Boston.
The pair of magnates agreed in a conver
sation at Baltimore Friday that the above
trio depended almost entirely on brains
to win their games. Said Mr. Hart,
"Neither Griffith nor Maul have speed
enough to break a pane ot glass, and
while Nichols has a good arm, he does
not depend on strength to retire the
batters facing him."
Harry Weldon, the rubicund and robust
sporting editor of the Cincinnati Enquirer,
was in attendance upon the meeting of
the magnates at Baltimore. Harry takes
tho world easy, as his ready smile and
250 pounds ot jolly avoirdupois attests.
Be is the most prodigiously upholstered

the ring since Sullivan defeated Ryan

L. Will Bo iu the Press Box.
Carson, Feb. 27. The conclusion of the
week linds preparations for the Corbett
Fitzsiir.mons light well In hand. All
monetary arrangements aie complete and
satisfactory. The' principals have demon
strated that they are lit to battle for their
lives even now. Stuart's mammoth Coli
seum is hair rlnished and the weather has
moderated sufficiently to please every
body An inrusiou or objectionable char
acters is- being carefully guarded agai ist
by the State and municipal authorities-, and
"sure thing" manipulators are weeded out
immediately their presence is detected,
Rcfeiee Silcr has conferred with the men
tc whom his decision will mean glory or
disgrace, and they have agreed to abide by
his interpretation or the rules under which
they will contest. Gov. Sadler and Slieriff
Kinney have been quietly gathciing about
them trusted deputies, who are placed on
the paj-roll as ja6t as their services are
required. The taxpayers are not grumbling
over the additional burden thus placed
upon them, and the householders dispense
latchkeys with a reckless liberality and
unbounded confidence in their guests.
From hair-couipleted plans of the aiena
now on exhibition, 1,200 tickets have al
ready been sotd, and a number of sections
yet remain untouched. These are the ones
which will bp. icserved for special excur
sion parties from the East and elsewhere,
who have already besiKiken accommoda
tion. Ring patrons in distant cities thus
stand an equal show of getting seats with
these who are near the ground.
Visitors are beginning to shed their over
shoes today, tlie sidewalks and street cor
ners having been dried by the warm sun.
The roads are a little deep with mud, but
the sandy loam rapidly absorbs the water
and bicycles are being oiled up ror ser
vice. Corbett was stirring alxjut at daylight
this morning. He set the punching bag
going before breakfast, of which he par
took sparingly,. Three hot games or hand
ball were next on the schedule, after which
Woods and Jerrrtes took their gruel with
the mittens. The Los Angeles wonder is
becoming speedy and he worked some
surprises oiij Jim before the champion
dropped to hissfyh;.
"I'm learning a great deal," purred Jef
fries, after ho 'Jiad stopped a few lefts
with his cheek, "but it's rather discourag
ing to reach outallthe time and findnoth
lng. If I could; only get In just one
punch cverjrjdayjlt would satisfy me, but
cen that i denied me."
Billy Delaney is supremo in the rub-down
room, and Charley White has been in
stalled as adviser extraordinary.
Fltzslmmons ga,v ills cook a few pointers
on broiling beefsteak today The bad
roads prevented him from visiting the city
and he romped about the ranch with
"Ynrum," his pet dog, instead.
Ernest Roeber left his mark on theCornish
man's face yestcMay, and -Bob's thin lips
puffed out like a split watermelon. His
nose is slightly on the bias and black
streaks about the lids of his left eye attest
the sturdy Teuton's hitting power. When
told or the gory encounter in which Fitz
simmons received such hard treatment, his
friends wink and intimate that the Aus
tralian is tampering with herring and
creating a false scent to influence betting
No one doubts Bob's ability to keep away
from so ponderous a boxer as Roeber, and
so tho talent conclude that he is up to
tricks.
Certainly his work has been very clumsy
thus rnr, possibly Tor the purpose of mis
leading Corbett's rriends, who watch him
daily. More discrimlnatingobservers, how
ever, Incline to the belief that the crafty
Bob Is accustoming himself to receive pun
ishment in order that he may lie able to
stop a few of Corbett's blows preliminary
to landing his own deadly short-arm hooks.
With the exception of Corbett's mana
ger. Brady, nobody is disposed to do any
betting. In all championship battles here
tofore, one mati has entered the ring a
pronounced favorite. On form, Fitzsim
mons should control the long end. On
class Corbett easily leads. Sporting writers
vary their opinions to suit their hearers,
and friends of both heavyweights are not
indulging In any loud talk.
Quarters were reserved today for John
L. Sullivan, who will describe the fight
foran Eastern paper; WyattEarp, who has
a similar engagement, and Pror. Donald

Denlors and Others Arranging
Fine Exhibits.
The nc wRobmson St Chery Company.now
opening for business, is arranging to give
one of the floors or Its building for a big
bicycle show during tho third week ot
March. The bicycle dealers and every
body connected with bicycling in the city
arc evincing great Interest in the show
and are promising to make it a fine af
fair, maybe the best that Washington has
had.
Exhibitors will be given large floor space
and will be allowed to erect booths and
make any kind 6T exhibits they like. Some
of ttiem already planned are remarkably
handsome and Interesting.
Bicycle races have been arranged, and
competitions oflvarious kinds, for which
handsome prizes are being offered. The
affair Is largely uiider the management
of Mr. Pliny Mofan, who is a great friend
of the blcyclistk and bicycle dealers in
Washington. He says that the success of
the arrair is aheady assured. Those who
wish to make exhibits and have not yet
arranged for tliem are requested by Mr.
Moran to communicate with him immedi
ately, as floor spaces will be hard to get
after a little.
FrrzsmM-OS-MONEY PLENTIFUL
j
The CorbettBettors Are Very Timid
in New York.
New York, Feb. 27. Where are all the
Corbett men? is a Question that uptown
sporting men are asking each other. A
few weeks ago there was talk of millions
of backing for Coibett and nothing for
Fitzsimmons.
The men were Fcarcely matched before
Corbett was Installed favorite at odds of
100 to 70. This gradually changed to 100
to 80. At these figures it was claimed that
the betting was very light. The Corbett
men, however, said that there was no
Fitzsimmons money in sight, and for a
while appearances .seemed to bear them
out in their conjecture.
A rude setback has been received by
the Corbett adherents during the last
few days.
At the present moment there Is upward

of $100,000 or Fitzsimmons money in
sight. This money will be wagered at
odds or 100 to 80 in sums to suit the
bettors.
't he men who have the Fitzsimmons coin
are men who usually know pretty thorough
ly what they are about. They are shrewd
judges of race horses and righters and
seldom plunge on a race or a fight unless
they are thoioughly posted on the condi
tion ot the horses or pugilists.
Those who have money to wager on the
Cornishman in bigor little sums are Henry
Robertson, A. Pappenheimer and Dick
Roche. They are nearly all members of
the Metropolitan Turt Association, the
Turf, Bohemian or some other prominent
sporting club, and can be found at almost
any hour of the day at one or the big
uptown hotels or their clubs.
To a man they are very much inclined
to doubt the existence of Corbett money
that will be wagered at the prevailing
odds, or at any price.
The consensus of opinion seems to be
that the Corbett men are waiting for odds,
and that Fitzsimmons will enter the ring
at Caraon City on March 17 an odds-on
favorite.
The latest wager made on the big right
was $3,000 against $4,000. J Kelly, of
Kelly & llllsa, took the odds and the Fitz
simmons end or the argument. The bet
was made with a prominent business man,
who declined to have his name made pub
lic Clmrlle Delmonico recently bet
$1,000 against $800 that Corbett would
win.
These are the only bets of importance
that have been made during the past
week.

TIE EAMLT DOCTOR
Among the many apparently harmless
practices that should be discouraged is
that of permitting the promiscuous kissing
ot babies. Not only should it be dis
couraged, because the Interchange of
kisses is a very common means of dis
seminating disease germs, and, therefore,
responsible for the spreading of diphtheria,
scarlet rever, and other contagious and in
fectious diseases, but because thebreathof
an adult, however sweet and pure It may
appear, Is really heavily charged with
noxious gases, quite readily apparent to
the acute sensibilities ot the child, and
consequently obnoxious and disagreeable.
Doubtless most of us have at some time
or other observed the struggles ot a child
in Its efforts to escape the disagreeable
ordeal of being kissed and attributed
those eflort8 to timidity, instead ot dis
gust on the part ot the child at receiving
such marks or arrcctlon. If the tempta
tion to caress children In that manner
is too strong to be overcome or resisted,
the kisses should lie showered upon the
check or forehead, but never upon the
mouth.
