D0IIG5 DI THE DIAMOND
The Washington-Baltimore Deal
GOOD THING FOR BASEBALL
Doylo Was n Disturber and for Tlmt
Reason Ilnnlon Let Him Go Hope
ful of MeGunii Hart Will Ad
eute Plneinj; the Pitcher Nearer
lho Home Plate.
Speaking or the Washington-Baltimore
deal, the Chicago News thinks It look3
rather problematical, owing to the uncer
tain qualities ot AIcGann. If the Toronto
man can play good ball and hit up to
League standard the exchange will be all
in Baltimore's favor, as McJamcs is a sea
soned and valuable pitcher a better ma,!
with such a teain asjualtimoru than Amnio
or Nops-and DeMontrevllle is a hetter bat
ter than Reitz. On tliu other hand, it-ifc-Gannshouldnot
panout well Baltimore Will
for once be given the hot end of a deal,
giving up a good left-hander, a superb
second haeeman and the heady, fast and
thoroughly competent Doyle, llanlon is
conceded to generally know what he is
doing, and it may, therefore, be taken almost
for granted that MuGanri is a ballplayer
Whether the deal results well for either
club or not it is a good thing for baseball
the more trades the better.
Supporters of the game in Baltimore are
not veij greatly elated over the trade.
They are not sure that the deal will prove
of benefit to the Orioles. Of Boyle the
Herald says: "Baltimore has parted with
one strictly lfrst-clns-s man a stake horse.
In fact and none of the players received
in return cnu be said to be an equivalent
for him. Yet such were the circumstances
that tills man's usefulness could not be -itll-ized
in Baltimore, and it is far better
that he should be let go. While McDanu
cannot be expected to fill the shoes of
the most brilliant man In the business, he
will improve, and If he keeps up his repu
tation fur hard hitting, Poyle's loss will
not be felt.
President Hart, ot the Chicago club,
favors a restoration of the old rules which
places tin pitcher five feet nearer the
home plate than at present. Whan the
playing regulations for '98 are completed
at St. Louis, in February, Air. Hart's plan
nit.y be adopted.
There is one feature about it that vill
make 1c popular with the magnates. AVJth
the pitching distance decreased, clubs -will
not have to carry half a dozen twirlcrs.
Mr Hart says- "The object of placing
the five feet impost on the pitchers was
to increase batting, as it was the popular
belief that n.ore base hitb and run-sing
would lend additional interest to the game.
In those days base hits were comparatively
scarce, and a two-bagger created some
thing of a sensation. An increase of bat
ting certainly followed the increase of the
pitching distance, but I do not believe
that it hub in any way added to the in
terest of the sport."
"The game was far more uncertain un
der the old rule, and the suspense vas
far more Interesting than an abundance
of base hits.
Outfielder Sam Thompson is confident
that he will be in condition to" play ball
next season. He left the Philadelphia
club May last and has not played since.
Chris Von der A he has sold George
fcchoch to Milwaukee. The German utility
man thus goes back to the same West'Tii
team from which Brooklyn took him yetrs
ago, while the National League loses a
man, who, while never brilliant, and well
on in years thirty-1 en was one of the
most fait'iftil, sober, and conscientious
players who evertrodtlie field.

HOT ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD.
A fact often overlooked, or not always
understood, is that women suffer as much
from dist rcss I ng kid ney and bladder troubles
as the men. The womb is situated
beck ot and very close to the bladder, and
Tor that reason aii3" distress, disease, or
Inconvenience manifested in the kidneys,
back, bladder, or urinary passage z often,
by mistake, attributed to female weakness
or womb trouble of some sort.
The error is easily made and may be aa
eat'dy avoided by setting urine aside for
twenty-four hours; a H'dimi'tit or settling
is evidence that your kidneys and bladder
need doctoring, ir you have pain or dull
acl.ing in the back pass water too fre
quently or scanty supply, with smarting
or burning tnese are also convincing
proofs of kidney trouble. If yon have

' Mlfes Hay said of the, rfasnn why tie
Westen. States take up the suflrage idea
more readily than the East:
"It is partly in the temperament ot the
people, who are not so conservative as

of our success there is due to the fact that
we achieved our firt victory thue, in
Wyoming. The neighboring States ha.-c
felt the influence and seen the good ef

"The sentiment or the Republicans in my

McKinley iu his civil service reform ideif.
The people believe that the reforn is the
right thing and that any modlflcatioii or
weakening or the rules that have been
adopted would be a dlsgracerul backward
step. 1 believe that Congress will 'ake

question what the personal Interns uf
Congressmen would dictate- The law has
saved them from a world of (he disagree
