meettn of the National B.ise Ball League's
morning session was spent in discussing

changes were made, the principal of which
was tbe striking out of Rule Xo. 34, relat

sidered that rule Xo. 84 declaring that in tho
delivery of Ibe ball a pitcher should not
raise hit band higher. tb:? the shoulder had
been practically a dead letter for years, so
it was deemed advisable to strike It out al
together. The championship season was
eitepded to tbe 19th of October, and tbe
number of championship games iucreased
from fourteen to sixteen. The rules were
a!so changed to provide for the selection

ON THE DAY OF THE MURDER
be claims to have been employed all ihe

mile from bis bouse. Scratches upon tho
face and bauds of Mis. Lambertson caused
her to bo suspected. She, however, as
serts that the scratches on her face resulted
from ber coming in contact with a clothes
Hue. As for tbe scratch on tbe band,
Mr. Lambertson explained that on
Monday night bis wife persisted in pinching
his leg, when be drew a pen-knife blade
across ber band, inflating a scratch. John
McCormack was discharged yesterday,
Constable Hendrlckson having ascertained
HAD KOT BEEN IN THE VICINITY
of'the Maybee residence on Saturday. Tho
officers paid the young man's faro back to
Brooklyn and work bad been secured for
kitn. Doyic, tbe tramp upon whom the
strongest suspicions rest, was beld in Itos
ly n yesterday, and will be examined at the
continuation of tbe Inquest to-day. Tho
fact that Lambertson on Sunday last
gave people to understand tbat
ho knew that the tramp Doyle was the
murderer, together with a questionable
character, has aroused a strong feeling
against bim. There is a small settlement
near Brookville called Pine Hollow. It Is
luhabltod mostly by negroes, tome of whom
bear questionable cbaraoters. Although
no colored person can be
said to have been seen about
the Maybee resldenoe on the day of the
tragedy, still tbe fact that several negro
residents had been employed at odd times
to perform small Jobs for the Maybees, and
that they were acquainted with the
habits of the family, have produced
a conviction In tbe minds of a few that tbe
real culprit is near home. Tbe observation
of the deteotives has been turned in this
direction, but It will probably be several
days before anything- like light can bt
thrown upon the sobleot. ' '

a tire at Windsor Castle were spread
through tbe city yesterday evening and oc
casioned no little excitement among the
polloe and those always on the lookout for
Fenian plots. One extraordinary story was
to the effect tbat an attempt had been mads
to blow up the castle with dynamite, arid
tbe private apartments of tbe Queen bad
been completely destroyed. The Queen
made the Journey from Balmoral to Wind
tor yesterday, and the fact tbat "extras
ordinary" precautions had been taksjitll
along the route for ber safety ba$ been
extensively advertiser! mded
to make timid people suspicious tbat Tbe of
flcials were guarding against some arranged
Fenian conspiracy against the royal Defiop.
Tbe fact Is that te muoh advertised t
cautionary steps were but tbe nsunsl tflc&i
ures taken for the Queen's safety whenever
ber Majesty undertakes a Journey of any
length. ' '
THK FIRST NIW9 OF THE FIRE '
came to Loudon In tbe shape of s bulletin
dispatch stating that there was a fire at
Windsor C.tle. This report was soon
spread about In all directions, and In
many rases exaggerated with true genius.
When tbe news attained Its most exaggcl
ated form one ot the stories was that a dyn
amite clock, which bad been secrete, In
the castle, of course, by Fenians, caused
an explosion in the royal apartments at a
time when It was calculated the Queen
would be enjoying repose. While these
rumors all destroyed the castle they strain
ed curiosity by leaving tbe fate of tbe Queen
undecided. Tbe latest intelligence has,
however, relieved all anxiety. A fire oc
curred In a boatmakt r's shop lu Windsor,
situated near the castle walls. Before the
engines could reucb tbe place tbe
tCLAMES HAD FULL POS9BSION
of the shop building. The wind at the
time was strong, and was blowing In a
direction Mtrlgbt from the shop towards tbe
castlo, carrying sparks and flaming embers,
which flew over the palace. Some ot tbe
sparks fell upon the roof of tbe Royal
Chapel of St. George, and, hinging there,
produced a slight lgnitlo.i. By tbls
time ail tbe residents were out and much
alarmed, and all sorts of wild rumors
were afloat. The fire brigade and military
had, however, - gaiued complete mas
tery of tbe situation, tba fire at. t ie shop
was under control, and tbe sparks upon
St. George's Chapel were extinguished be
fore they bad gained any bold or dptie
much harm. Tbe latest dispalcbes from
Windsor state that the fire ha made tbe
queen nervous. Her majesty has not yet
recovered from the exbauston which fol
lowed the injury to her knee last March,
and Is not yet able to go up or down stalls
unaided. She did not exhibit any alarm
during the progress of the fire, but since
1U extinction has been continuously send
ing messages ot inquiry as to the condition
ot tbe royal fire brigade.
