An- M drew Freedman, President of tlio Now York fe- Club, will leave tome time to-morrow. Ebbets K and Abcll have been corresponding with differ- E ant club owners lately with an idea of compel- llntr, If possible, every club In tbo Leaguo to pro wl, vent players from kicking against umDtrea' do f clalona, and they are confident tbat the evil will H b obliterated. Ebbets laid rcetcrdajr; "Tho Brooklyn Club will stand up for the ei jg tabllshment of clean ball. If over other club In JL the Leaguo backs down. At the meeting Mr. K Abell and I Intend to tell the delegates that J the Brooklyn! will obey tho umpires and re ft fraln absolutely from Illegal kicking, even P though every ono of tho cloven other teams plays rowdy ball. We do not say that wo will ft stop kicking If tho others do, for that Is absurd. B We wish the League to understand that we have already decided to forco our players to ' actllko gentlemen, whether we win or lose, iand nobody wants to Mill any moro than we do. Tho manly statement of Manager Ilanlon of the Bultimorcs, published in Tills " Bun tho other day, Is bellovcd to bo the turn ing point In the wholo irusade. Tho authen tic Information that tho ez-chaninlons will play clean ball will scrte to bring everybody Inline, 1 think. When Itanlon repeats his views at the Leaguo meeting, I'll guurnntce tbcro'll bo a j, general stampede to get in lino with tho re- IS formers. It Is right to say that the Leaguo 9r must take action or be publlclr ridiculed and ft condemned for not being unanimously In favor i of squaro iport." James A. Hart of tne Chicago Club, In a com- $ munlcatlon to The Bt'N, aaj s that there will bo ,. a strong effort made to get tho llrutli blacklist , rule Into effect. In spite of tho opposition that W has appeared stneo It as first introduced. Ho W says that Brush has documentary eWdcnco 2 'which will prove to the delegates that noted P ' rowdies of the Leaguo ham used unheard-of langURgo in their unfair denunciation of um- fi plres. Brubh, It will be reuembcrcI, sent out a request some time ntro for records of Indc- cent behavior by players who have been In tho habit of using Improper language, with the re- suit that he has numerous snorn statements from umpires, managers, newspaper men, and b .patrons of the game who have crovidod evi- dence in black and white sgatnst all those who i offended last season. Urusb expects to reud tho ft choicest bits of testlmonr'to the dolugatcs. so that they may hu e n perfect knowlodge of tbo I depnnltj of omo plnjers. When this has been 1 dono llrush will bring his powor to bear In an I effort to get his rulo through, possibly In a J modified form. It is reported that ho will ad ', vocate. as a penalty for this particular vicious i evil suspension for at lenst one vcar without j. pay, and possibly indefinite suspension, which i might mean that a culprit would never play g ball again. Hart also writes tlint tlie Leaguo t, will bo compelled to nurree to some plan where- ji by all clubs will be bound to enforco the rules IP and punish their players for i lolatlng them, be- jB foro running tho risk or having them severely S disciplined by the League. ft,- A. O. Spaldlnsr says he will be at the mcct Jf lng to aid his friends In the gool work, prot id It leg his present plans are not upset. He intends K to mako one of his forcible addresses to tho magnates on the kicking question, and OBho will not listen to any arguments In favor of , tolerating row dies under any circumstances, his E lnllucnco will be of groat nsssltance to the men ft who have the campollgn In hand. In addition (' tohisviowson kicking which have bean pub- 5 llshed In Tub Sun, be says: "If all the League clubs will sign an agree 8 ment to uphold the umpires and to forco their 6 players to obey the rules, well and good. Hut r the press and the public must bold them to that IS agreement. There must be no backsliding, as j, there may be If the newspapers do not take the club owners to task the moment thcro is the 7 slightest kicking by their players. A club 1'res- . Ident who promises to establish clean bull and f, doesn't live up to his word when the diamond fc battles are hottest should bo painted In his S3 true colore. Whllo I believe that nearly nil of 9 tht club owners are Bincero In their desire to j stop rowdyism, they must bo put on rocord In f6 suoi a manner that there can bo no doubt ,C about their Intentions. I Binrerely hope the ' League will also instruct the umpires to do their g duty, and I also trust that the umpires will not f hesitate to throw kickers off tho field. If an -. umpire does his duty und Is protested, the E President of the League, in Justice to the public, E should announce the fact, so that patrons can see what clubs want to win fairly and what X clubs do not. The League is on tbo defensUe fe Dow and cannot dodge." 3jf Regardless of whatever suggestions may E have been made on rules covering the earned P run and stolen base, the predominant opinion IP among baseball men neems to be that an Jt earned run should be scored when it Is the direct J, result of the pitcher's work. The Idea of scor- x lng eamod rnns originated ln'a desire to show E last how effective pitchers were, but tho scor- lng was based eolely upon clean hitting. For fc Instance, If a batsman led oft with a single K and was advanced to tho plate on a sacrifice K and another bit, his run was earned. Hut It he W received aid In bis circuit of the bases by an K error, wild pitch, passed ball, balk or any such g- mlsplay, the run was not earned. Upon con- R slderlng the matter carefully, though. It has , dawned upon many experts that an earned run 5 does not truly demonstrate tho value of a 5 pitcher's work. It has been shown thnt somo ft pitchers who have boon noted for lack of Mr cqntrol have led tho Leaguo in percentage of m earned runs, which Is nn Injustice to othor K pitchers who do not deal in bases on balls and other Inaccuracies. Therefore it Is believed that an earned run should be scored where a bats & man reaches the home plate by clean hitting. It bases on balls, hit by pitcher, wild pltrhos, AP balks. andTlllegal delivery, thereby show lng con v oluslvely the actual merits of the pitcher. 6 The scoring of stolen bases has grown to bo VS; an evil that will be hard to regulate. Tho old ystem of giving stolen bases where a runner if deliberately stole a bag while tho bnll was being IS1 handled by tho battery players was simple nnd ffi hard to get away from. Hut with the adop- t Hon of the hit and run system the method of re- Qt cording stolen bases changoil. A return to the m old rule would seem fair to all teams, provld- il log the scorers lle up to It. 1 As Tup Sun stated exclusively on' last Mon- K day the Police Commlstloners havo sent print- ed application blanks tolboxlng club promoters, ff who, before they can hope for licenses, must ; fill out tho doomnents.

The athletes and alumni of the leading univer sities and colleges are looking forward with unusual Interest to tho annual meeting of the Intercollegiate Association of Amateur Athletes of America, which will be held to-morrow after noon at the Fifth Avenuo Hotel. There are sov eral questions of vital Importance to be handled. Including a uropos'ed hnme-and-bome contest with tho universities of Oxford and Cambridge. It was ofllclnlly announced yesterday, for the first time, that the association had been corre sponding with the two big English 'vanities for somo months with a view to such a double meet ing, and the matter is now almost rlpo for final action. When seen by a reporter ofTiiieSuN yesterday, Oliver Shlrat of Cornell, the Presi dent of the Intercollegiate Association, said: "Last fall the Executive Committee empow ered me to appoint a committee, with myself as Chairman, to open negotiations with Oxford and Cambridge, with a vlow to holding two sets of International games one in England next summer and tho second hero in 1800. The committee appointed, beside myself, was 9. K. Gerard, Yalo: Henry W. Howe, Harvard, and Frank U. Ellis, University of Pennsylvania. Early In December we sent the challenge, and the resulting correspondence was of such an en couraging character that we had eery rea son to hope our enterprise would bear fruit. So far I havo rocclved no official Intimation from cither of the English universities that our challenge will not bo ac cented. The commltteo which Instructed mo to go ahead with tho mattor meets to-morrow night at the Fifth Avenuo Hotel, and I am pro pared to lay before it all the correspondence on tho subject. Until then I do not care to discuss the question further, but I see no reason why the Executive Committee should keep tho mat ter secret any longer, and I will recommend that the whole corresnondence be made public." In addition to the International question the Executive Commltteo will handle a volume of business to-night with a view to putting It In shape for presentation to tho general meeting next day. At the last exocuttvo meeting the question as to whether tho Intercollegiate bi cycle records mado last year, with pacing assist ance, should be accented was laid on tho ta ble. It will be taken up ngaln to-night. Tho order of business also includes a delicate question affecting tho attitude of the Univer sity of California toward tbo parent association. It appears that nn athletic official of the univer sity had been widely quoted In terms reflecting severely on the administration of the I. A. A. A. A. A. An official explanation was nsked for, and tho reply will bo considered to-night. The Executive Committee is as follows: Oliver Shlras, Cornell. PrMenti E. Q HoVltty. Princeton, Treaurr: It W. Ahbott, New Vork Unl Terilty, Secretary: W. If. Fesrlnu. Columbia t s. K. Gerard, Vale: Henry W. Howe, Harvard, and J. D. Wlnior, University of Pennsylvania. Regarding tho rumored friction between the A. A. U. nnd tho colleges on the subject of regis tering baseball and basketball plM ore. it is said that CiustavusT. Klrby of Columbia will make n statemont at to-morrow's meeting. The lru- firesslon seems to bo that If tho tonus of tho ex sting alllnnco with the A. A. U. aro not mutually satisfactory, they can be mado so without friction. hen questioned on this subject yesterday President Shlras said that he had written no such letter as was credited to him by an afternoon paper. Secretary Sullivan of tho A. A. U. said: "Tho Intcrcolleginto Association can have anything It wants In reason. So far It assumes to govern only track. Hold and bicycling sport. Whenever It Is prcparod to organize and con trol baseball, basketball or any other sport on our schedule wo will gladly stand aside. Our only object, ns I havo frequently cxplnlnoi. Is to conserve and develop amateur pastimes that nro nllowod to drift along without a guiding hand until the advocates of tbeso particular branches nro prepared to organize properly. We have our hands full and court intelligent asslstanco rather than enmity." UaMmoiitb and the Trl-Colledafr Itumnas. Hanovkh. Fob. 21. The rumpus of the trl collegiate athletic situation has assumed a now form owing to the recent decision of tho leaguo to abolish tho meet for ono year and becauso of Dartmouth's attitude favoring a withdrawal from track athletics, provided Williams and Amhorst concur. Dartmouth's position seems to bo misunderstood. Sho doos not proposo to wlthdrnw from track athletics. What sbe has voted, through her committee. Is that trt-col-leglate track athletics aro not a profitable line of sport. Sho has no Intention of ncting In'e pendently In tho matter, however, and will favor a continuance of track athletics rather than sacrifice trl-colleginte baseball and foot ball. Williams ndtocatcs, as a substitute for the meet suspended for one year, a dual meet with Amherst or a trl-collegiato meet with Amhorst and Wesloyan. Harvard Sanies Her Briny Team.

The Hockey Club of New York journeyed over to tbo wost side last night to meet tho St, Nicholas Skating Club team In tho regulnr scheduled game of the championship series, nnd lost to tho homo players by a score of 2 goals to 1. Tno latter are again tied with tho Now York A. C. for the lead. Although the disk remained the greater part of the time in tho St. Nicholas players' territory, the visitors had somewhat the worse of the luck, missing several times by scare ely moi e than an ej clash. Thi game was started at ti:30 o'clock. Itussell won the puck In tho race-off, carrying it as far as renn, who lifted it to Hunt. The New lorks cover point tried to dribble tbo rubbor through tho opposing teom, but was beautifully stopped by Ilarron and Cullender. 1 he rubber w as passed to Sam Phillips, who in turn carried It dow n almost to the St. Nicholas goal. Ho paesed It across tho rink for a shot, but no one was there to recelv o It, After a number of lifts and returns Itussell trltd for a goal on a pass by Benny Phillips, missing it by less than six inches. Hurron, skating like the wind, was tho tlrst to roach tho rubber. He lifted tttoLarnod. and he in turn passed it aiross to Cullender, who shot the goal less than thirty seconds be fore the refereu'8 whlstlo nnnouncod the end of tbo first hnlf. Tho second half began with a furious scrim mnge, in which the visitors had tho better of the battle, principally through the hard body hicklng ot Itussell and Do Casunoi a. llcnnj Phillips finally won tho puck out of tho bunch and mudo an accurate shot for tho goal, which was stopped by hlocum. Cullender then tried to dribble the rubber through the opposing team. He was tackled by Itussoll, who lifted tho disk Into tho gallerj, Aftei sooral moro long lifts Ilarrou made a sensational run the eiitlro length of the rink and drove tho putk toward tho Now fork's goal posts like o rifle shot.

When the clock ttrnck the hour before mid night last night every dog at the Westminster Kennel Club bench show, except tho Schlp perkos, which are not blessed with such ap pendages, wagged their tails with Joy. Out until that hour, from the early morning, there bad been the largest attendance of the week and by far tho most fashionable. A mild sensa tion was created by the benching of the mastiff Black Peter, who had arrived late on Wednesday night from England. He it the property of tho boston amateur. Dr. C. A. Longest, who already hat fSO.000 invest ed In bloodhounds nnd mastiffs. Unllko Black Prince and Black Prlnco Brampton, tho best two mastiffs ever seen in this country, the new dog it a dark brlndle Instead of a fawn color. Black Peter has won many firsts both In Germany and England. Ho has nover met Peter Piper, the dog who beat Black Prlnco when bo was tent to England, but Oeorgo Itopcr says tho new Im portation It the better of tbo two. Dr. Lougett Is Inclined to bo skeptical on that point, but he it very sorry that Black Petor was not here In tfmA far thA (nftfrtnr Among the breeds only represented by a dog or two were the English fox hounds. There wore only two entered, and those by a man who uses them to chase rabbits over tho snow and who has never beard of an aniseed bag. The heavy twolls who stood before tho pens, en thralled in admiration, talked nf runs with the hounds, stiff fencos, ond rough ditches in a grass country, but the two hounds never wagged an ear. Not to many years ago silky lapdogs or dainty Italian greyhounds wore the only breeds In fashion for women, and a girl would be spoken of with raised eyebrows at the sewing circles or tea parties who would walk abroad guarded by a bull terrier or mastiff. This prejudlco Is now as out of date among w omen os hoop Bklrts. In the list of somo 700 exhibitors In the back of the catalogue a count showed eighty to be wo men, nnd no doubt somo who. showed In the name of their kennel have been missed. Mrs. F. Bonn led the sex with twenty-three entries of pet dogs, nearly all winners of prizes, bnt she It a professional vendor ond Is aided by her hus band. Miss Anabel Orcon und Miss Qrnco Huntington, who showed field spaniels and French bulldogs, hod tho most entries, and, aside from the professional fancies, they each won more prizes than any women at the show.

West, who had everything bis own way throughout, expended surplus steam, and, with n choico assortment of rights and lefts, knocked Murpby nearly out.

BICYCLES AS MERCHANDISE By the natural evolution of manufacturing and merchandising;, the retail price of bicy cles has at last reached a figure as low as It is possible to sell a wheel of highest quality, material, and expert workmanship. In an swer to the criticisms of our competitors and the Inquiries of our delighted customers, wo offer the following reasons for the very low price at which wo sell THE SPALDINO BICYCLE. lint. Ve aro making many thousands o theso wheels in the best equipped factory, mechanically considered. In America, organ, lzed to do the best work, and, above all, economically administered. Second. We are buylne the very best tilt. terlal at about one-half the cost of two years 1 ago. which, with Improved machinery, better and more economical management, enables us to produce our 1898 wheel at a cost far balow that of previous years. Third. We have lopped off all " expensive habits" of the bicycle business, such as cycle shows, racing teams, art catalogues, souve nirs, and other expenses seemingly necessary In building up a new business and establish ing a reputation variously estimated tn the cost of construction at from $5.00 to $25.00 per wheel. Fourth. In selling our 1898 wheels at $50 cash, we do not talce In exchange second hand wheels, which heretofore have been accepted as part payment by all makers at prices in excess of their value as a merchant able article. Fifth. We treat a friend and the blcyclo expert who wishes a wheel loaned or given to him for his Influence with the same con sideration shown all buyers, and charge him no more or no less than $50, so that when you see any one riding a Spalding wheel you can make up your mind he pays the same price as any other rider. WE MAKE BUT ONE GRADE WHEEL In our Chlcopee factory, and that is the best that the highest mechanical skill and the uss of the best material will permit. Since the first SPALDING BICYCLE was offered for salo In 1894 wo have gradually Improved the quality each year, and our 1693 model Is the best bicycle we ever built, and. we believe, Is superior to any chain wheel of any other maker In America or Europe. We Invite the closest inspection. Why pay more or less for a bicycle, when you can buy "The Spalding" for $50 The Best Bicycle Built. A. Q.
