CROWNED WITH LAUREL.
THR nCTORKWIl OlANTS HOME AGAIN. THEY ARK W OOOD OtWDfTION ANO HEADY TO WORK 11ARH FOR THR MEAD. The New-York baseball team arrived In this etty . j . m, yesterday, a large party of enthusiasts lournevlnrT ?**?* to Jersey City to welcome home the . "players from their most successful tour of ,v,e West. The team has won fourteen of the eighteen games played since leaving; the polo Grounds, one of the best records ever made, und -ertainly the best record tiny New-York team ever made away from home. All the plsyer. are In excellent condition. They ascribe their success to Brood team work, heavy bat ting and the clever records made by Hosie and Meekln, the pitchers. Ward stopped over nt bis hnnie at Bellefonts, Tenn., and Oerrnan stopped si Aberdeen, hld, Fuller, Murphy. Burke, Doyle, DSVtS, Yan Haltrcn. Tlernnn, Rusts, Clark. Wester vclt. Meekln, Farrell, and Wilson all received hearty !' indshakes nnd cncouraglne; slaps upon th. backs. The players nre not over-confident on scoount of their splendid record, for they realise that they have hard work before them to pull down the Hus? ton and Haitlmore leaders. They have few com? plaints to make of their treatment In the West, ex? cept In that hint i-iii??? In Cincinnati Rosie was lent back to third base after having made a home run, snd the loss of that run defeated the team, The players blame Umpire Qnffney.snd they say that he ha 1 no right according to th" rubs to send Rusle bach 10 third base. The new war cry uttered by the team in the -yest aft>T each victory ls u peculiar concoction of words BSld to have been Jumbled together by Wes larval! As lt has not as >? ? appeared In print, here lt ;*. "Oscar' Wow! Wow! "Skinny! Wow! \\'.\> ' "Skinny! Wow! Wow! "Wo-o-o-o-o! Hurrah! "New York!" John M. Ward, the ms TIS ger "f the team, has sent to a friend in this city the appended letter, which explains itself: I am makins a formal protest to the president of the Lesxuc .its-ut th-- way the hom- c.ub* In cer? tain ettie, lo with ball, fouled over rb.- s-atti-. or fence.
