11 Notes, Comment and Standings of Amateur Baseball Leagues of the District ' , PLAYERS SEE BLOW TO DDFES1HLBI i orai RULE Amateur Commission Willi Take Up Subject af Meet ing Tonight. GOOD MAN NOW MAY PLAY ON THREE TEAMS Change Would Restrict Them and Keep Purity of Amateurism ( in Leagues. The one-team rule, which will come up lor discussion at the meeting of the amateur commission tonight, has much to recommend It as a safeguard against professionalism, according to followers of the leagues. It Is evident that men are now Jump ing from one league to another, for the reason, as one man recently put It, of making as much as possible out of the season. According to the present con stitution, a player may be a member of two teams at the same time, but he may be released at any time, to plav v, 1th a third "team, providing notice of his release and contract with the third team is filed with the secretary of the amateur commission before the player actually plays. Third May Release. A manager may release a pljyer. who Is playing on his team and another, so the player may play with a third club. Then the third club may release this player so he may be signed up again by the first team, or by any other team In any league. Thus a good player may tnake a circuit of the leagues, and, in deed, In many cases, nils has been done, and piobably will be done until the rule Is changed, the practice defeat ing the purpose of the rule. There are rules In some of the leagues which would tend to prohibit this prac tice, but a wise manager is able to get over the difficulties. Would Stop Professionalism. Such a rule as is proposed by Presi dent Beach Is expected to entirely ob viate this mode of procedure, and would go a great ways toward do.ng away with the much-talked-of professional ism that is said to exist under the ama teur commission. President Young Is quite I'Ptimlstic over the futuie of amateur baseball In the District, and believes that eventu ally all plajers will be raised from even the suspicion of professionalism.

Manager Noone, of St. Stephen's Is a trifle discouraged over the fact that the Medicos have defeated them two out of three games that they have played Noone had promised to have n star line-up on the field, and the con test would In all probability been a hard-fought one. On the other hand. Manager Collier, of the Naval Doctors was confident that his aggregation of balltossers could again hand the Georgetown boys the short end of the score. Today's game should be an interest ing one. Corcoran and Indian Office are scheduled to play, and "Walker Col ston, the valiant leader of the Indians, feels sure that his team can duplicate their trick of a couple of weeks ago, trtien they defeated Corcoran in a well played game, 8 to 4. Walker says If his star players are on hand today Corcoran will again bo scalped at the hands of his braves. Manager Lang ley, of Corcoran, promises to have a good, fast team on hand, and is pos itive that his club will defeat the In dians, who at present are holding down the cellar honors. The season Is drawing fast to a close, and still the Naval Medicos are leading by a comfortable margin of a little over a hundred points. If the team con tinues playing the standard article of ball It hRS played throughout the year. It Is probable that it will finish in first place.

It has been decided to have a meeting of the hoard of managers of the league early next week, the exact date not as yet being ascertained. Several of the managers have matters to lay before the board and the meeting la of no lit tle consequence. There lr no doubt that National Union has been a great disappointment to nearly all of the supporters of the league because of Its poor showing. From the looks of things at the begin ning of the season the fraternity team would have been picked 'as sure winner, containing some of the city's best ball players, but thev wnlted to see what kind of a showing the team made before thev put In their appearance, or appear ed one and never showed jp again, and so. despite tho work of the manager and Mr. Riddle to strengthen the nlno It has never stood high in the league.

Manager Cornelius also signed Buck and Martin Becker, Howard Benson, and Fairwell to his Hamllne staff. i North Carolina has -been the most versatile team In the league since the beginning of the season, which is the main reason why they have not made a better showing.

Either of the two teams could have had a forfeit game yesterday by hav nlng nine men on the field, but neither one seemed willing to get the least bit damp for a mere ball game. The Car Department team especially should have put In an appearance, as the Southern team played two winning games this week, while the Carmen threw away a chance to add an easy victory. The grounds were in the best condi tion to be played on. as the afternoon shower merely covered the dust, and had tho cooling effect on tho weather that would have made playing better than It has been for a couple of weeks. The league cannot expect to hold the position in the eyes of the baseball lovers that It now holds -unless there Is a more regular schedule.

Charley Snyder was telling me today that the League of Republican Clubs has arranged a most attractice schedule of events for the annual excursion to Marshall Hall on Saturday. July 21 The list includes 100-yard dash for letter carriers, 100-yard dash for mem bers of the T. M. C. A. and Carroll In stitute, 100-yard dash for boys under eighteen years of age, three.-legged race open to all, SO-yard dash for girls under eighteen, 60-yard dash for fat men. and throwing a baseball for distance. The entries close with W. C. Connor at Btatlon K. Postofflce Department. Get In the votes. The voting contest an the proper time for starting the ball games at National park will close with the ballots from today's Times. There has never been anything that has been bo thoroughly discussed aa the time set for the beginning of play at the ball grounds here, and now that the fans have a chance to express their opinions It Is hoped that no one will overlook the opportunity. There Is such a diversity of opinion among the patrons of the park thus far that nothing definite can be Judged, but when the voting ends tomorrow morn ing, I -believe that it will be possible to give the most popular hour to the officials of the ball park, who as far as I can Judge, are willing to do what is reasonable on the proposition. Play Eddie Ainsmlth. Considering the success which Eddie Ainsmlth has had with the bat since he came into the American League, I do not think It would be a bad Idea to play him in the outfield. ' He Is one of the most consistently successful hitters on the Nationals and in this day when offensive strength Is so much needed I believe that he would make a most valuable adjunct to the club. Behind the bat he Is liable to Injury at any time, but if he can be developed Into an outfielder he might be refined into a clever player. Important, If true. Here Is a letter which I received from New York today, and which I think is unusually interesting: Teams visiting the Polo Grounds In future will have to be on their mettle. The management of the New York baseball club has Installed some thirty- odd dictographs In and about the new steel and cement grandstand and bleachers, ostensibly for facilitating communication. This is the instrument used recently by tHe detectives of W. J. Burns to trap .crooked Onlo State legislators at Columbus, and which brought about the conviction last week of Rodney J. Diegle, sergsant-at-arms of the State senate on a charge of act ing as a go-between for solous willing to barter their vote on measures pend ing before them. Shortly after the fire at the Polo Grounds in May a Cinclnnatti fan who had learned of the not generally known fact that the old stands and bleachers were connected with the dlctograpn. Intimated that the Giants bad had the players' bench of the visiting team con nected with the Instrument and were enabled by means of It to learn of the plans being framed up. there to trim them. Although vigorous denial of Its employment for this purpose was made by Manager McGraw, many -believed It. Inasmuch as the transmitter of the instrument in the Columbus legislative bribery cases was concealed under a sofa In a hotel bedroom. It behooves visiting managers henceforth to examine the nether sides of their seats and the bottom of the water cooler at the Polo Grounds before they discus ways and means of sending the Giants to limbo." If this charge can be proven, it should bo taken to the highest court in base ball, but the proposition does not look good to me. Capital City League. YESTERDAY'S RESULTS. No game; rain.
