Xew Yoke, Kov. 24. Of course not a
sporting man' in this. city expected, even on
the inducements ot an exceptionally large
purse, that Jim Hall and Bob FUzsijnmons
would be brought together in a finish fight
tvithout a final difference of .opinion. It
appears now that Hall, having received the
articles of agreement cent to him by Charles
Noel, does not agree with them in several
mportant particulars. Where his opinion
iiflers with that oi the New Orleans Clnb,
ilr. Hall has seen fit to make those changes
ffhich suit his convenience and pleasure.
He says that he will not fight unless the
Crescent Club puts up a 55.000 deposit.
"Judging from the history of the men most
Interested, the members of the Crescent
Club have a good deal more at stake and are
more to be depended on than either Hall or
Fitzsimmons. iThe iollowing cablegram has

rused articles for match with Fitzsimmons,

roes op to-morrow. He insists that the
e-cent City Club deposit 55,000 with
Richard K. Fox, to be forfeited to the men

has got home and says: "No more Chioairo

ball magnates, too. As a result of the con
ference of the backers of the national game,
with a view to increasing the batting wort.
it is quite likely that tho ball will be livelier
and tho plcher's box moved back several
feet. This seemed to be the conclusion of
the magnates, although the subject of
changing the playing rnles ws left to the
discretion of Messrs. Binsh, Byrne and
Beach, who will report the result pf their
deliberations at the spring meeting of the
League, which will be held in "New Tork
it is ail poppycock." continued President
1 onnc. "to talk about changing the number
of bases and appearance of the diamond,
nut five peisons iu a hundred being in favor
ot such a propusitlon. We talked it
overinfoimally, to be sure, Dut the general
op ni'U was that it would not add to the
benefit of the uame. So far as salaries are
concerned It was agieed to let every club
regulate its own affairs, although it was not
denied that the past season would have been
much moie profitable hadltnotbcen lor tho
lnj;h grade salaries which the League peo
ple wore compelled to shoul ler. These con
tract a were made beioie the amalgamation
oi the American Association and the Na
tional League and had to be Jived up io.
Take tho case of the proposed Chicago
Amei lean Association club. Where would
it have been nt the elo-e of the playing sea
sod o 1892 liad it continued in existence?
Not less than $5'J.O0O and piouably nearer
$100,000, in debt. Yet the L-ague was com
pelled to purchase its ranchise, together
with the franchises of "other organizations,
and this crippled the financial promoters oi
the League at the out-et. Kerr year there
ill be deficiencies ol S 12.000. $18,000 and $20.-
000 at the u ind up, but these ba-ehall ufikiri
will be conuncted m a purely business
basis. I it does not pay theie will be a shut
down, but no one expects any such emer
gency as that."
Last night's gala at the Xntatorium by the
PittshurgSwimming Association was largely
attended. The swimming was spirited and
greatly appreciated by the large audience
who thronged the building. The winners ot
each event were as follows:

literature, being the frankly autobiographical story of the experiences of a

distinctly the study by a mature mind of that wholly different world which a

papers, among them several by the great war correspondents, Wjlliam H. Russell, Abchibald Forbes, and others.
A series of articles on the life work of men in many callings the chief ways (exclusive of
professions) in which men earn their livelihood. One article describes, for example, the
cypical life of a machinist or worker in iron on its largest scale in great mills like those at Homestead ; another the miner's every
day life, another the lumberman's, another the typical life of a merchant seaman, etc. Each one of these articles will be written by
fs thoroughly representative man in the line of life of which he writes.
A series will be published later in the year giving the impressions made
by the exhibition upon different observers of note, both American and
foreign ; and many of these observers will bo also artists who will illustrate their own articles,

in magazine illustration. It has always been the aim of the publishers to give the best renderings of original drawings in black and
white, but in this plate a great step in advance is taken when the original drawing
is reproduced not only in form and texture but in its coloring as well. The pictures
of the year will represent the work not only of the well-known illustrators, but many
drawings will also appear by artists who are best known as painters.
