B. A. tourna ment, plans for the event arc prog ressing rapidly. Chairman Dulin has undoubtedly made more out of his position at the head of the member ship committee than could have been expected of the most public-spirited bowler. Holcombe Johnson has made a re markablo campaign for his financial department and the outlook from his standpoint could not have been bet ter. Chairman Eisemann, who is at the head of the public order and comfort committee has embraced every prominent officer of the local force on his staff and is rapidly rounding out a formula whereby the guests of the tournament here next April -will have the most enjoyable time of their lives. Concessions arc being rapidly received, by Chairman John T. Meany, and while bono have been actually disposed off, thla la expected to be done shortly. Harry Stanford has done noble work as chief of the printing and advertis ing work, and nothing but satisfaction is beard of his efforts. The program has been let out for the solicitation 'of advertising, and details appertaining to the event arc in excellent shape. H. T. Rogers, who has been negotiat ing with Mayor Ed Devlin, of Hyaits vllle, for a return match between a local team and the Marylnnders, todny addressed a letter to tho Hyattsvll mayor asking that the dote for the en gagement be sot for one week from next Saturday. In accepting the challenge of Roger. Devlin asked for Kebruarj IS as the day for tho mutch, but because some of Rogers' stars will be in New Vo-U attending the bowlers' mass meeting, later time hns been suggested. Ed Devlin has outlined the personnel of his team and it is found to con tain many of the best ho.vlers in the Prince George county town. .1. frank Rushc will lead oft, mid H. -Wright, ' McAllister, P.

While some secrecy veils the nature of Rogers' team. It Is thought sure it will embrace such star ns Horry Krauss. Ernest Dulin. Peyton Plctohcr, Top Ilalley and Rogers himself. As substitutes Rogers will have the entire District Lcngue on the bench, posing b masked marvels.

B. A-. nnd If Baltimore does send Its representatives here In April, Isemann will aeserve a groat deal of praise. The last end of this match will be lolled un der tho Maryland city concl'tlons. with a larger ball nnd pin. and the Wash ingtonlans will endeavor to demonstrate that they know something of that game.

With the probability of four large re gattas in this section of the country, and with a possibility of the Middle States being held on the old Potomac river on Labor Day, Washington oars men will have ample opportunities to show their powers this coming season. The effort to get new members is not the only actlvitv the preparedness com mittee haa started, for they have de cided to get new rowing equipment, the addition of which will make the Po tomac Boat Club one of the best equipped clubs In the East.

The dinner will attract many men prominent in national life clergymen, judges, men noted in business affairs, literary pursuits and the world of the atricals. Public, officials will be present men who have followed the fortunes and mlsfoi tunes of the league since It waa started far back in 187b. Mavor Mitch el will probably be there. Theodore P. Slionts. Dudlcv Field Ma lone. Irvtn Cobb, veteran ball players, long since retired, old club owners, and numerous Individuals whose names are written in baseball or other halls of famH will be the guests of. the league on its fortieth birthday. The National League was organized at n meeting at the Grand Central Hotel in New York on February 2. 1878. This meeting followed n nreltmtnarv meet ing held In Louisville the nrcvlous vcar. It was mainly through the efforts of William A. Hulbert. of Chicago, that the organization was brought about. Mr. Hulbert was reallv the "father" of the National League, as It was he. together with A. G. Spalding, who drew up the first constitution. ' The National League marked a great change In tho professional baseball sys tem. It waa a league of baseball clubs Instead of baseball players. No city of less than 75,000 population could be come a member, and the entrance fee was made 1100. A form Of players' con tract whs adopted and rules were passed prohibiting the nool selling and gam bling evils which had wrecked the Na tional Association. - Morgan G. Bulkeley. of Hartford, was elected the first president, and Nicholas E. Young, of Washington, secretary. Mr. Young received $400 a year for Mis serv ices. Mr. Bulkeley was later governor of Connecticut, and also United Stateu Benator from that State. In the forty years of the league's history, only eight men have ruled over Its affairs. Mr Bulkeley served the first year, and was succeeded by .William A. Hulbert, of Chicago. He served until 18S3, when A. G. Mills, of New York, who was the au thor of the reserve clause In players' contracts, took office and served for two years. Colonel Mills refused to be re elected because the league reinstated playora who had violated the reserv) rule. Mr. Mills was elected to honorary membership to the National League, but a. year later he resigned. "Uncle Nick" Young, of Washington, who had served as secretary nlnce th league was organized, was now elected president, and he served continuously for a period of eighteen years. During his regime the league passed through many troublesome epoch, but weather ed all storms. Tt was during President Toupg'a term or office that the league was expanded Into a twelve-club circuit This was in 1892, nnd the organization was made up of twelve clubs until the end of the 1899 season. Then came the league's stormiest period. There was much dissension strife, and trouble-making, and condi tions became so bad that at the end of the 1902 cambalgn Mr. Young left the r (residency. The league then was placed n the hands of a board of directors, with .Tohn T. Brush, of New York, as chairman. This scheme did not work well, and then four of the olubs tried to elect A. . Spalding president. Pitts burgh, Philadelphia. Brooklyn and Chi cago were behind Mr. Spalding's can didacy. The controversv was adjusted by selecting a compromise candidate In Harry C. Pulllam, then secretary of the Pittsburgh club. He took office In VJ0:s and served until 1909. At Mr. Pu'llam's deaht John A. Heyd ler. who liar served ns .secretary, was elected to serve dilrlnsr 1901 as presi dent, secretary and treasurer Tn the following year another control ersy M. A. C. Runners Are Given Time Trials The Maryland Agricultural College track squsd was given Its first try out yesterday at the Y. M. C. A. gym nasium. Coach Byrd timed each, of the candi dates for the relay team separately, and although he gave out no figures, it is probable that the first quartet will be composed of (irace. Morris. Chip man, and Sneer, with Rich and Axt as I alternates. These men are all excep- tlonally fast; in fact, it is the best all I round team that over represented M. I A. C. I According to present plans a second relay team Will also be entered in the coming meets.

Ward, tho old Giant player, am president. John T. Brush, of the New York club, eeltctcd a compromlso can didate In Thomas J. Lynch, of Now Britain, who bad been a National Loaaue umpire. Mr. Lynch served un til H13, when John K. Tcjjcr, then gov ernor of Pennsylvania, and an old base ball pitcher, was elected and Mr. Tenor now holds the office. During the forty years of the league' llfo twenty-four cities have beu repre sented In its membership. Of that num ber only two cities have been contin uously in the leauuo. These two are Chicago and Boston. When the league was organized the members were Chi sago, Boston, Hartford. St Louis. Cin cinnati. Louisville, Mtitimla of Brook lyn, nnd Aihlfttlcs of Philadelphia. The schedule in those days called for only Heventy games.

It was not lintU seven years Inter, In 1s3. that New York en mo into tho league and also Philadelphia returned to the fold. At the close of the season of 1R75 the Boston team waa weakened by the de sertion of four of Ita best players to the Chicago club. These were Al Spald ing, Jim (Deacon) White. Ross Barnes, nnd Cal McVey. The second year of tho National Leaguo's existence marked the expulsion of four Louisville players for "throwing" games. Devlin, pitcher: Cravcr, shortstop; Captain Hall, left fielder, and Nichols, third baseman, were the players expelled, and they wero never taken back.
