Just whether or not tho Hartford manager will take immediate steps to blacklist Gastmeyer, Luyster and O'Connor he does not know, as he had been too busy getting a team for the afternoon gam to decide that at once. Ross has no contract with the Hartford manager, and is a free lance, and can do as he pleases. He prefers this stle of baseball dealing and will not sign' with any management. - Gastmeyer and Luyster have become almost Hartford citizens, having been With the team at least three years." O'Connor is also a player who has been with the Hartford team for some time. O'Connor can scarcely be called a de serter, as he was suspended last night by Manager Clarkin for going away Monday without giving notice and not showing up till yesterday, without anv explanation for his absence. He went along to Jersey with the bunch yester day, however. ani will prohably not come back when his suspension Is over. ENTERTAINMENTS. POLITIC WEEK OF AUGUST 12. Daily Matinee 2:15 Evening 8:15.
