Louis meeting IhrouKh the) me eiumof the Utiles Committee. As stated In Tub Bvtt of yestcrdny, James A. Hart of tbo Chicago Club, who Is tbo Chairman ,of that committee, has drafted n new rule Intended to top rowdy ball playing. Jt Kites to tbo um pire nbsoluto power to suspend kickers, not only for the rest of a came, but also for as long n period as ho may dceni proper. Tho fining of players by tho umpire Is nbollahed. because of the fact that Ones generally oropnld by somo of tho club owncn. A. J. Itcach of tho Ililladci pbla Club, also of tho comniittcc. heartily In dorses the proposed rule, for ho bcllees that the kickers must bo throttled without further delay, llcach further bcllotes that tbo l'rcal dent of the League should bo crapou crcd to com pel umpires to enforce such n rulo If It is adapted. Kdwaid Hanlon. managorof thollal tlmoro Club, who is the third member of tbo committee, shows his hand in a surprising man ner by Qllng an objection to tho rule for the ren ion that ho bellecs It gives too much power to the umpires. Hart, in explaining the rule, bays: 'Tho rule does a way with the necessity of tbo Brush resolution. Itcach signed It. but Hanlon opposes It, Jly proposition is that tbo umpire s power to Impose fines should bo tnUcn owny en tirely, but in lieu of tlint he should reecho power to suspend i plojcr not only for tbo gnmc. but for any tlnio ho may see fit. In othcr.w unls, ho may sny to a plnjia. 'You get out of this Bome, and you cannot return to the field while I am umpiring herd' That may bo for four games. Such measure would forco teams to quit their rowdj Ism. My Idea Is to increase tbo umpire's power. He has been a lonc-troddcn-upon individual. Let's put a sword in his hand and mako him n (lencral. I will acknowled.-o that I expect considerable opposition to this pro posed rulo at the St. Louis meeting, becnuso there are many teams which havo grown accus tomed to ndopting rowdy methods, and they would be sure to suffix by tho adoption or tho m. measure as compared with those teams that WSL conduct themscites more decent!. Hut I pro- I af peso to put my associates in the Lcacuo on rec- W ord in this matter. Their nctions on the stib- 15' icct will not Ixj considered executive session iW secrets, but will bo published to tho baseball im A. if. Soden.

Wt Tho resignation of Jack McMosters, Prince '' ton's athjetio trainer, enmo in tho nature of a $$ aurprlso yesterday to many graduates of Old vfe- Nassau. MuMastcrs's action is said to have vSU been caused by certain football men who blnmcd VJB him for the defeat of tho Tiger football cloven -J? by Yale at New Hacn last fall. Sinco his en SL easement as trainer at Princeton toven years TlZ ago YcMastcrs has turned out five champion- ship teams in different branches of sport, w Inch r la regirdcd as an excellent record, especially In fl& riew of the fact that ho has been handicapped Jig, by advisers, who are prevalent atcxery blir Uni sys' verslty. ltegardlng tholtrainlnc of tho football 33, eleven lost fall, it is sal thntMcMnstcrs. if ho 3K had had his own way, would hnve avoided sev 9fe ral mlstakos that wcro fatal when tho Ynlo At , game was playod. In tho first pinco lie. so tho f story goes, advised tho athlctio authorities to arrange somo hard game to bo plnycd n week s .- before the contest nt New- Haven, und In that Sm wy work tho team up to n proper pitch. In- jpf stead of that two weeks wcro allowed to pass GST between l'rinccton's game with Lafnyetto and BjS the battle at Now Haven, which was one. of tho Ey' reasons why the Tigers went back in physical Kit condition. It is also gossip that Mc.Mnstcrs fi$ opposed the putting of Ilaird in the came, when S& be was fit to go to a hospital, and also advo- ,iM cated tho playing of Keilcy from tho start, in SjF each Instance, however, he encountered deaf 'i& ears. In spite of theso points It is snid that the &t very men who would not heed tho advice of Mc- S5 Masters were the first to Mnme him for tlie dev p feat. The latter took the matter to heart, and 0 as there was nothing left for him to do he sent g In his resignation. JS , In training and coaching college teams a mls- f& take Is often made in working players up to a Set pitch of nervous excltcmont by impressing upon ;K their minds that It they are beaten the univcr- i eity which they represent will bo disgraced. It y. Is often the custom for coachcrs and trainers to t,jj gather the members of a football or baseball tuft team In a room, lock tho door and make an ad- ,"?.Y dress something llko this: M "Rememl)er, mon, that this gamo must bo ) won at all hazards! If you are beaten tho col- ftk 'e&e will be dliirraced and you will noor hear Sv the last of It. Wo want you to go on tho field '. and fight like mon, but you must not lore under 81 any circumstances. You haiotralnivl carefully yEf for this gamo and a victory must ho wrested 355 from your opponents. Tho eyes of nil uuder- C graduates and alumni are upon you. Your ro- !S rponilbllity is groat , 'and! you cannot allordlto 5!;' betray your college honor. y Such adminltion ti cnlrulatrd to make plny- ;K ers so nervons. if the game Is close and hard Kg, fought, that they finally loo their heads and nro "ijs easily rnttlod. It Is claimed by ninny ox-' varsity men who havo received similar nd Ico tnat it Is tie, entirely unnecessary for the renson that tbo uK players know well enough what Is cxpi-rtcd of is?" them, and nre ready to go on the field to play y as they hnvo never played btfore.

Barnard of the Montauk Club In tho Interclnb amateur handicap tournament at Maurice Daly acad emy last night otcltcd great Interest among billiard lovers. The academy was crowded with clubmen. Tho Lledcrkranz star ws a decided favorite, Poggcnburg gained his odds In the fourth inning with n break of It), which made his total score ao to Barnard's 10, but the Montaukcr wns nbrad again In tho eleventh with a cluster of 13, which mado him .11 to his big adversary a 48. Both amateurs smashed duck eggs after that until Barnard caught a good position, and playing balk-line nursery n "tile, corralled a Icier cluster of 'JH, which carried him to 7.1. Poggcnburg managed to Ho bis rival In the twenty-eighth Inning with a double break of 1 J. each having 87 buttons to his credit. Barnard cleared tho wlro first, with 103 to tho New Yorker's ttt. Poggcnburg caused a roar of laughter by an extraordinary scratch shot, on which he lumped tho cuo ball elenn over the objoct ball, but still managed to count. Ho gained nothing by the fluke, though, nnd he atoned for It directly aftorwanl by n long left handed "draw," which began a run of H that sent him nround thu wire, too. with 105 to 11 ,, Barnard, being In tho lead, played safety" for all he was worth, and his tactics bothered his rival greatly. Poggcnburg did not strike his gait until the forty-second tuning. nnd when he did ho passed the Montaukcr In nn artisti cally executed cluster that bent any run made In tbo tourney. It was n brilliant break of 45. Barnard put together 1,1 In flno style, nnd the scores stood eon nt 'JW. It became ft case of generalship nfter that on Barnard's part, and he fell back on "snfctv " to fortify his able open tnblo execution. But Poggcnburg was too much for him on tho homestretch and won.

Representatives of the Brooklyn and Jersey City courts attended, but the 3!anhattanvl!le delegate, failed to appear. It was agreed that tho games In the championship series should be distributed equally amoug tilt metropoli tan courts sending entries, bo that each competitor should receive a fair chance.

Louis, Feb. 10.-lxaao B. Potter wai re lected President of tho U A. W. to-day over Oeorge P. Gideon by a voto of 212 to 107. Bit terness, more than had over been expected, entered Into the election. Though shortly after midnight this morning It was generally believed that Gideon's candidacy had been abandoned. Knowing ones saw that Potter would not haro an undisputed race. Although tho Pennsylvania delegation late last night de cided that they should not placo Oldeon tn nom ination, this resolution was but amovoof du plicity, and when the crisis arrived, Fred Ger lach of Chicago espoused tho Pcnnsylvanlan's claims to the Presidency. It was 11 o'clock to-day whon President Pot ter called tho assembly to order. Tbo Com mltteo on Credentials reported that there were 307 votes, 1C2 In person and 13 by proxy. Af ter tho adoption of tho regular executlvo and commlttco reports Secretary Abbot Bassett took tho chair and called for nominations. Del egato Yanalkenberg of Wisconsin placed Pot ter in Domination amid enthusiastic applause. Ho referred In glowing terms to tho New Yorker ns "tho father of good roads," and to his earnest work for the L. A. W., his labors In securing Ihe passage through Iho Now York Legislature of tho Baggage HI cyclo bill, and his Indefatigable efforts to uphold tho organization. Wallace and Sher wood of Indiana, C. Frank Klrlkcr of New Jor scy. and Chief Consul Jenkins of Now York seconded Potter's nomination. Then Gerlacu nominated Gideon. Ho spoke of the Penusyl vantan as tho "Moses who could lead tho lenguo out of the wildorness of political disaffection." An Ohio delegate created n rumpus among hli colleagues by declaring for Gideon, and then William B, Tucker of Pennsylvania, in a speech seconding Gideon, scored Potter's political methods. After Tucker came Sterling Klllott, who received a more vociferous reception than olther of tho Presidential candldntcs. His sarcasm was biting, though ho disclaimed any personal enmity toward Potter. Tho differences, he said, wero purely political, and he regarded politics as tho bane of tho League. Gideon, ho claimed, wns tho only man who could bring peaco to tho contending factions. Thcro wcro additional seconds of both nominations and tho ballots wcro placed ia tho hands of a committee, in cluding Fuller of New York, Hayes of Massa chusetts and Mlllor of Ohio. Whllo this commlttco retired to count tho ballots Sterling Klllott moved that tho Secre tary bo authorized to cast the full voto of the League for Thomas J. Kecnan, Jr.. of Pitts burg for First Vico-Prosldcnt. Tho motion was carried nnd Kecnan declared elected. Then E. N. Hlncs of Detroit waa nominated for Second Vice-President and unanimously elected. James C. Tattersall of Trenton was also unanimously elected Treasurer. It was decided that the next meeting of tho Na tional Assembly should be held at Providence, 15. 1. Fred Howard Porter of Boston road un in vitation from tho wheelmen of New England lo the K A. W. to hold its meet of 'OU nt "tho Hub." nnd when tbo applause greeting him had subsided, tho tellers entered and announced Potter's election, which was subsequently mado unanimous. At an adjourned meeting In tho afternoon tho assembly elected a National Auditing Commit tee, as lollows: George It. Blackham of Dun kirk, N. Y.. Chairman; J. Fred Adams of) Haverhill, Mass., and O. G. Orccn burg of Chicago. Then came tho submis sion by Chief Consul Goorgo L.

II. Kirch of Texas, and D. W. Hobcrt of Missouri nrgued earnestly In favor of the professionals. Opposed to these wcro Conway W. Sams, Chief Consul of the Maryland division; A. Cressy Morrison, ex First Vice-President of tho League, and Milo Bcldlngof Now York. It required a two-thirds voto to admit tho nrofesslonals, hut out or Il'-'j ballots only 1 B'J wcro cast in their favor. Their admission to the Ixiaguo was thus frustrated. One of tho mo.11 sensational incldontsof tho day was occasioned by iho second amendment, which George I. C'ooko submitted, moving to eo change the constitution as to leavo the league membership open to colored persons. Pougln W. Hobcrt of Missouri raised a point of order to tho effect that tho amendment was submitted without parliamentary warrant. Ho urged Hint H wnscotnlngcnt upon an nmcnil uicnt snnalonlng local option on Sundny racing, and that, tho latter amendment not being sub mitted, Cookc'n proposition was out of order. Chairman Albert Mottof tho Hnclng Hoard wns delegated to rccoive Iho balanco nf tho credit to tho account of the board, aggregating more than $1,200.

The one thing talked about by tho trotting fraternity yesterday was the action of the N. T. A. congress in changing the rules of harness racing. Although there Is a radical difference of opinion respecting the wisdom of some of tho amendments to the turf code, horsemen agree that In tho main the work of the congress waa well done. The unanimity of the vote against hopples was tho big surprise of tho congress. Everybody had been looking forward to a stub born and close fight. Col. William Edwards said yesterday: "When Ed Tipton came to tho subject of hopples in reading tho report of tho Hulcs Com mittee I bracod myself In my chair uncon sciously, waiting for the flerco attack which I was sure would come. But tho delegates were nearly all on one side. Thoro was no opposition worth talking about. I am satisfied now that we could have passed a rule abolishing hopples at once," Nearly everybody was taken by surprlio when a majority of the votes was muttered In favor of tho plan to llconso drivers. Even the loading advocates of the measure say thoy expected to seo It boaten. Toe opponents say It would bavo been beaten If tho opposition forces bad been handled more skilfully in tho par liamentary manoeuvring which preceded the final voto. President Johnston, Sec retary Gocher, Col. Edwards. William Itussell Allen, Kd Tipton, and other loading lights in the N, T. A. express tho belief that the llccnso system waa a necessity, and that it will operato without annoyance toanyonoconcemod. Each applicant for a license will bo required to bavo his application Indorsed by an officer of the N. T. A. or by tho Postmaster of the plnco where ho resides. The two photographs which must accompany the application will also be indorsed by tho sponsor for the applicant in ordor to head off any attempt nt -rinsing on tho part of ex pelled drl era Booking to travel under assumed names. On receiptor this application Secretary Gocher will. If tho applicant is found to be In good standing on the books of thoN. T. A.. Issuo n llccnso bearing tho photograph of tho drlvor to whom It Is Issued. This llccnso the driver will bo required to produce at each meet ing upon weighing out to start In a raco. The clerk of tho course, having at band a list of nil licenses which hnvo been revoked or sus pended, may then "top tlio driver If ho sees fit. William B. Faslg, tbo Hon, 1), J. Campau, George Archer, nnd other equally prominent horsemen think tho licensing system Is unnecessary, and is cnlculnted lo du more harm than good. Fnaig had this to say yesterday about tbo Innovation: "I am unable to see that tho llccnso system accomplishes anything which couldn't bo ac complished just as well and n good deal more easily under tho old rules slightly nmended. Nobody has nnswered the suggestion of Mr. Campau that if it is necessary to provide for tho identification of drivers tho best way to do it is to apply to them the same rule that Is now applied to tho Identifica tion of horses. If the identity of a horso is ques tioned, tho party controlling him must establish bis identity beforo bo can get bis money In a race. Wby not apply tho snmo prlnciplo to drivers I It has always worked pretty well in its application to horses. It would work just as well If. applied to drivers, and would avoid a world of bother nnd expense, which tbo license schemo Is going to licccasltato If It is enforced. I helicvo, too, that it will lead to more fraud than It will aver pro vent. .Another objection to tho schema is that it tends to professionalize trotting. Tho sport bos nl waj s been to n great extent in tho hands of amatours; men who mnybo owned n good horso got him agoing them selves and started him once or twice a J car at their local fairs and horso trots, t should bo tho policy of tho N. T. A. to oncour ago such men. not to hamper them with a Haines law ' for horse racing. Threo-qitarters of them will never tako tho trouble to get a license, and besides they wouldn't apply for ono It it could bo had without either troublo or expenso. Llccnso drivers nnd 3 ou make a movo toward bringing tlio sport down to a cold, business basis, which will do it harm instead of gooeL" JfaCJ.VG.
