According to thia dispatch, Nicoll will in all probability play with Rockford un til he is needed by Los Angeles. Thia ia in all probability a correct construction, aa it ia not intended to carry more than three pitchers, and according to dis patches, Stafford, Roach andNevea have already been signed. Glenalvin has ap parently a liking for left-handed men, no leas than eight of the playera being left-handed batsmen. THE COLONELS. The Players Who Have Been Signed Thus Far. Colonel Robinson and Captain Carroll are hard at work getting together the Oakland team for 1892. The men who have been signed thus far are Park Wil son, catcher; Jack Homer and Ed. O'Nei), pitchers; Fred. Carroll, first base; O'Brien of Brooklyn, second base ; Clem Bushman, third base; Lou Eardie and Henry Hines for the outfield. It is probable that the new short-stop will be either Ely or Sehiebe :k. The latter was a member of tho Sioux City team last year. Hardie has signed with the un derstanding that he will go behind the bat when required. Colonel Robinson is also said to be negotiating with a pitcher named Gilliland of Denver. Carroll is anxious to secure the services of this twirler, because he says he is a good one. DUNGAN HEARD FROM. He Has a Kind Word for Hulin and Roach. Sam Dungan writes a friend in this city from Santa Ana, as follows: "I saw by the Herald that Hulin had affixed bis name to a Los Angeles contract, and lam glad to know that he will play third for 'The Angeles' in 1892. I wish Hulin every success and I hope he comes out on top. I know he can hold his own all right. Los Angeles will cer tainly have a good club if she gets all the players reported to have signed. This man Roach is a good one, He is a left-handed pitcher and is very cool — especially at critical periods. He has excellent control. I played with him when he pitched for Kansas City. He is called 'Pap' Roach by all the Western association people." THE UNIVERSITIES AHEAD. Young Bentley Does Some Good • Twirling. One of the most important and excit ing games of amateur ball was played on the University grounds yesterday afternoon, which resulted in a victory for the Universities over the Woobury Business college team.

The delegates at the meeting last night unanimously decided that the team captained by Rivera was the one fairly entitled to representation in the Junior league. A Very Tame Affair. Childs and La Blanche did not come together last evening, as was announced, and in consequence the large audience that assembled at the Auditorium went away kicking themselves, as the enter tainment offered outside the regular show was very snide. There were three boxing bouts, the most interesting one being betweeu two kids. La Blanche boxed three ounds with Peppers. It ■ isjvored too much of the burlesque, how ever, to pleae the spectators.

Gua Tuthill, Jack Dempsey'a old backer, and whj ia financially intereated in Peter Maher in the latter'a battle with Bob Fitzaimmone, went down to East Hampton on Saturday to ace how things were progressing, and got back yeater day. A Sun reporter met him aa he stepped from the train and asked how Maher was doing in hia work. "How is he doing?'* repeated Tuthill, "why, to put it feebly, Peter Maher is one of tbe best men in training whom I ever saw, and I have had some experi ence with fighters. He works all the time. Yesterday, for instance, after he had done his morning work, he said to Billy Madden: 'You don't want me any more for a littie while, do you ?' Madden said : 'No, but you must be back by 3 o'clock to punch the bag.' Maher re plied : 'All right.' Then he went down the road to the house of Dennis Downey, a farmer whose acquaintance he had made, and who is a compatriot of Peter. •'Along about 2:30 o'clock Madden and I strolled to Downey's. We had no fear that Peter was doing anything wrong, but jußt wanted to see what he was working at. He couldn't have sneaked off to a public house to drink ale, for there ia none within seven milea of the training quarters. Eaet Hampton is a little hamlet and knows, no public houae. Well, we went to Downey's, and what do you suppose we aaw? At first we could get no trace of Peter, and we had to hunt for him. Finally we atruck the barn, or at leaat the rear of it, and in that apot we aaw a eight that amused ua. There waa Peter Maher ahoveling manure into a higb wagon and handling his prong with much more en ergy than ia ahown by a farm hand who receives hiß regular pay." The reporter asked Tuthill what ground he had for believing, after allow ing that Maher had the strength and science necessary to make a good fighter, that the Irishman waa poaaessed of the requiaite determination and gameneas, after he had received a couple of Bound whacka on the stomach. "Don't know anything about that," replied Gus, "but I will take chances. Maher may be a quitter; he certainly hasn't been tried yet. But from what I have seen of the man, I am inclined to think he will die in the ring rather than be licked. He is one of the best foot ball players in Ireland, and has been in many battles of that sort. His legs are all scraped and marked from kicks and cuts he has received. Of course, that doesn't prove that he can stand the gaff within the ropes, but I cannot but think that the young fellow is pluck personi fied."—N. Y. Sun. Juvenile Baseball League. The Boyle Heights Stars twinkled over the Stars from Downey yesterday after noon. The Wilmington-street nine is -being organized. The Boyle Heights are anxious to play any club whose members are under 18. Yesterday the Wilmington-sWeet "Tuffs" defeated the Turner-street nine by a score of 7 to 4. The following communication was left on the baseball editor's desk yesterday afternoon: "The First-street nine de feated the Wilmington-street "Tuffs" by a score of Bto 7. The score would have been 6 to 4 but for the cheating of the umpire." Of course the above was written by one of the First-street team. Coming Fights.

Mr. Lockwood will have the aympathy of many old-time friends on his having exiled himself to such a cold country aa Minneaota. There are a whole lot of people who wish he waa in a warmer place.

The draft waa protested and the bank at Orting closed. About fifteen months ago the Firat Bank of Orting waa organ ized with a capital of $25,000. Harry Ball, of this city, waa president, and T. D.

Editors Herald : The water ques tion, that ia now under consideration by our city council, ia of ao much import ance that every person should be allowed the expression of an opinion. And as tbe Herald is an excellant medium for that purpose, I humbly aak tbe privilege of a small space for that purpose. Every citizen w ho has given this mat ter due consideration feels that it has much to do with shaping the future des tinies of our city. For the past few years they have been looking forward with a good deal of sat isfaction to the time when they would be relieved from the yoke of bondage they suffered to be placed upon their necks years ago when the burden was light. But now that the facte are being made apparent that before this yoke will be allowed to be removed, it must be re placed with one much stronger, and that, too, by rights claimed to be inherent in the old one. Is it any wonder than that such citi zens should feel a deep interest in tbe matter ? It will be the greatest mistake our city ever made, if they should give to a corporation all the water rights they have (a fifty years' lease being equiv alent to a gift), and suffer them to deal it out to the consumer as best suits their inclination. The city has now only their hands tied, and that for a limited time. But in the event of a fifty-years' lease they will be bound hand and foot, seul and body. For however many safeguards may be placed in a contract, it will be a political machine which, when offered to either party, will secure all the favors that could be tortured out of a con tract. For, if justice is so hard to be obtained through our courts in the ordinary course of business, what might we expect from a corporation of euch magnitude and where the chances to cinch the people are so numerous ? Already they are trying to intimidate our city officials by waving over their heads their legal rights, claiming that the city has no rights—scarcely—that they are bound to respect; and it is only through their extreme generosity that they do not charge the consumer twice what they do. Some of their experts have made an array of figures, to show that for the city to buy their plant would entail a tax upon the people that they never could stand. We have some people among us that, while they are not ex perts in figures, they do understand a good business proposition, and they also know that, while figures of themselves will not lie, they can be made to grossly misrepresent facts. The immense value of the water rights of the city are entirely lost sight of when placed alongside of the plant of this corporation. Either water rights in this country are not worth wbat they are supposed to be or else the city has a much greater value in its water than the corporation haa in Ub plant. A plant ia a created thing to go to de cay, while the water is perpetual and ahould be bo manipulated that in the course of time it could be nominally free to the coneumer. I would like to have some of the ex perts in figures tell how long it would take to make it so through the fifty years' lease. We are allowed to tax ourselves to build public buildings, a large portion of which is to gratify pride; we are allowed to tax ourselves to pave streets and make sewers; all of which require a continua tion of taxing to keep them available. But when we come to talk about taxing ourselves for something that is to yield a revenue, this we must not do but turn it over to a corporation, to make rich a few at the expense of the many. About the time the city paid $50,000 to quiet a claim made to some of its water, the writer of this and many others urged the importance of the city owning its entire water system, and that they never would see see so good a time again to acquire it. The same argument holds good today with increased ratio. We are told by the president of the City Water company that they are more generous to the water consumers, and do not charge as high rates as the San Francisco Water company does; but he don't tell us tbat San Francisco does not own a half interest in their plant by virtue of owning all the water rights. Neither does he tell us that San Fran cisco is controlled by one of the most coirupt rings known, where boodling is, the rule instead of the exception. Such a comparison is odious and should serve to put our people on their guard against being caught in the same trap. Every fair-minded taxpayer in the city should be willing to pay the water company a fair price for their plant, what it is worth'separate and apart from any water rights. The fact of the city owning the water should not mili tate against the value of their plant, no more than it should serve to enhance its value. If I understand the tenor of the original contract it was that tbe plant should revert to the city when the said contract should expire, stipulations for determining the price being Bet forth. If by any reason whatever at the expiration of the contract the water plant should not be a paying concern, could they not, under the stipulations, compel the city to buy it at a fair valua tion? But now that there is big money in it, we are told that if the city will give them Buch privileges as they want for a short space of time (.say fifty yearß), then the city may have the right to purchase. It might be quite a question should our city make such a lease and continue that kind of financiering, whether at that time they would need a water plant at all. Many of our title deeds for real estate will have expired by that time. We think our city engineer has shown conclusively that a water plant can be built by installments, and in view of the several plants now in existence, and their franchises,the city can take advan tage of these circumstances for their own benefit without in tbe least infring ing on the rights of any one of them. It is to be sincerely hoped that our city is not so tied ap, either financially or legally, that they can be forced into a compromise that will be an incubus upon our fair city,' be handed down to our children and to our children's chil dren. The old adage about the burnt child may not be inappropriate in thia caae. M. S. B. A COWBOY TOURNAMENT. Wild West Sport to Be Held at the Race Track.
