The Farmer's
In Holyoke to-day.
The Orators found things to their
likirg with the Ponies.
Bourquin made his first error of the
season yesterday. The young fielder
has been going along in fine style.
The slugging Ponies could not con
nect -nith Pollard. The Glastonbury
boy has the curves and will be heard
from many more times before the sea
son is much more advanced.
We are now tied- for second place
with Holyoke and New Britain. After
to-day's game we ought to be the un
disputed holders as Holyoke is easy
while New Britain is playing in Hart
ford. HI Ladd was there with the trusty
furniture, yesterday, slamming out two
of the locals six hits. Bannon'3 and
Pollard's liners were good for two
sacks apiece.
Yale lost to Brown yesterday at New
Haven in a fast game 4-2. Van Vleck
passed three men In the fourth inning
which with two errors and a wild
throw gave the Providence boys the
Another baseball war appears possi
ble to close followers of the game.
This belief is given color by the an
nouncement of the National Commis
sion that the revised National agree
ment, as framed up to suit the Ameri
can association and the Eastern league
has been abrogated through the failure
of these two leagues to sign the in
strument within the time limit set.
Johnny Bvers. the crack second base
man of the Chicago Cubs was yester
day suspended by the National Com
mission for failing to report to his
team at the opening of the season.
"Dode" Criss of St. Louis who led the
American league in batting last season
has been suspended by Ban Johnson
president of the league for not signing
up before May 1st. Criss held out for
more money.
The New Haven Leader remarks that
Brooklyn, May 6. The Dodgers jolted
the Quakers hard at Washington Park
yesterday, an unwilling instrument in
the jolting being Earl Moore, whom
the Brooklyns did so belabor in the
fourth inning that they made five runs
and sent Moore to a secluded corner of
the .clubhouse to think It over.
Brown, who pitched the rest of the
game for the Phillies, was a vast Im
provement over Moore, but as Bell held
the Phillies down, striking out eight f
them. Brown's good work was of no
use except to prevent further out
breaks by the enemy. The score:
Philadelphia .. 10001001 03 81
Brooklyn 02050010 S 10 2
Batteries: Moore, Brown and Dooin;
Bell and Bergen.

won the opening game of the series
with Cincinnati here yesterday after
noon by the score of 5 to 2. The score:
Cincinnati 00000200 025 F
Chicago 01010201 591
Batteries: Gasper and McLean;
Overall and Jdoran.
New York. May 6. The rejuvenation
of King Brdckett as a pitcher was fur
ther manifested yesterday. Brockett
has pitched two full games for Stall
ings' cayenne boys this season and
shut hte opponents out in both of them.
The game was well pitched on the
Boston side by Arellanes. The New
Yorks, however, hanaged to bunch two
hits twice. The home team would have
had a run or two more if the Boston
fielding hadn't been fast and fine. Mc
Connell. Wagner and Stahl coiled their
tentacles around swiftly coursing lin
ers which would have been hits but for
the noble foemen. The score:
Boston 00000000 0 0 6 0
New York 1 0000001 2 5 1
Batteries: Arellanes and Spencer;
Brockett and Blair.
Philadelphia, May 6. A pass to Gan

ton formerly with the Stratfords will

Liggins of j the West Ends will do the

The Diamonds are anxiously waiting
to hear from the Stratflelds, Lincolns,

about a game for Sunday. None of

Harry Jope who has been let go by
the New Haven management will not
play In the Connecticut league any
more as anyone who isn't good enough
for New Haven isn't good enough for
any other state league team.
Paddy O'Connor, formerly with
Springfield, but now catching for Pitts
burg got into the game against St.
Louis yesterday making three hits out
of four trips to the bat. Eddie Phelps
of the old Danbury team caught for
St. Louis.
New Haven has signed an outfielder
from Baltimore. Md., bearing with him
the approval of Manager Dunn of the
Orioles. He will play left field, mean
ing that "Farmer" Pleiss will warm
the banch.
Manager J. H. O'Rourke can afford
to have it rain better than most man
agers. He has Just been awarded $850
damages by the board of appraisal by
reason of the layout of Winter street
in Bridgeport. Meriden Journal.
Pans all over the circuit are com
mending the action of President Tracy
of the league in slapping a fine of $50
and a suspension till July 1st on
Catcher Schincel of Waterbury for
damaging Umpire Murray's pro file on
Sunday. If course it comes rather
hard on Schincel to be suspended at
this stage of the game, but it will be
an example to the other players in the
league to keep their hands off the um
pires. It is a well known fact that it
is human nature to damage an umpire
when he appears to be unfair, but it
must be abated.
Harry Durant and Player Schincel
deny the fact that Schincel struck
Murray on Sunday. From all appear
ances it looks as if Harry had bottled
up the Waterbury papers over the as
sault, as nothing appeared In their
editions of Monday concerning it.

Captain Paul Boyton, Steeplechase
Manager, Says Power Will be Soon
Installed to Operate Draw.
Captain Paul Boyton, general man
ager of Steeplechase Island, stated to
day that he had Just learned of the
decision of Major Harry Taylor, the
United States government engineer, in
regard to the operation of the draw
bridge across "The Gut" to Steeple
chase Island, in connection with which
he made the following statement:
"Although no regulations have been
established' for the operation of the
draw, I would not think of delaying
for a second any boat whose owner
uses it in his business. The same ap
plies to pleasure craft, excepting those
who ask to have the draw opened just
to annoy, the drawtender. I have
made arrangements to put a 10 horse
power motor on the draw so that it
can be operated speedily.
"I want no one to suffer in any way
from neglect of the drawtender, and
if he does not operate the draw speed
ily I will be the first to get after him.
I want to make it emphatic that there
is no desire on our part to delay any
vessel that has business up the gut."
M. E Brewster-Greene Tells Labor Com
mittee That Former are Open to In
spection of Employee and Employer
Hartford', May 6. Various labor inter
ests were represented at the hearing
before the Labor committee yesterday
on a bill which proposes to repeal sec
tion 1298 of the General Statutes con
cerning the blacklisting of employes.
The bill was drafted f or the purpose
of making a law which would be more
effectual by providing that any em
ployer who shall blacklist by writing,
or publishing any of his employes
shall be fined not more than $200 or
Imprisoned not more than six months.
President Donahue of the State Fed
eration of Labor appeared in favor of
the measure and submitted two sub
stitute bills drafted after similar laws
In Ohio and Oregon, which were more
concise. He wanted a law drafted
that would' have "teeth," as it were,
one that could reach the employer who
blacklists. He believed that the em
ployer had the right to discharge an
employee with or without reason, but
did not have any right to conspire
against him.
Lawyer C. W. Gross of Hartford
appeared against the present bill, for
he believed the law as it now stands
is sufficient. He didn't object to hav
ing the present law clarified, if in
so doing the employer would be left
the privilege of making inquiries and
learning the truth about a man whom
he is about to employ. M. B Brewster
Oreen of Bridgeport and others testi

Officers of Trolley Companies Lodge Ob
jections to Petition of Motormen of
22 Cities.
Hartford, May 6. The opposition to
a petition from the motormen of
twenty-two cities in the state, asking
for vestibules on open cars for pro
tection against storms, was heard yes
terday by the railroad commissioners.
Paul Windsor of the elevated system
of Boston; Henry C. Page, vice-president
and general manager of the
Springfield street railway system; Ed
ward G. Cornell, vice-president of the
Worcester system; John T. Sloan. Wil
bur A. Mainard, George E Bailey,
Benjamin F. Milner. all of New Ha
ven, and others testified. The opposi
tion based its claim on the belief that
the public preferred cars left open at
both ends in the summer time to allow
the free circulation of air.
Concerning the claim made by the
motormen at the hearing two weeks
ago. that they would be protected
from storms, several testified that af
this seemed to be the chief object of
the petition it was dangerous in it
self, for when rain Is beating against
a glass window it prevents an unob
structed vision. The commissioners
have reserved their decision.
