From the New York World: The fun niest people on this mundane sphere live In Mount Vernon, and Mayor Fiske is one of tht funniest of the lot. He never has darad to be quite so funny as he could, but be has taxed the lives and waistcoats of his fellow-citizens by coming pretty close to the limit of face tlousness. When the mayor tried to open his front door yesterday he found some heavy object fastened to the out side knob. Ht pulled and grunted. At last he managed to get the door open ed enough to enable him to stick his bead in. A large wooden hobby horse was fastened to the door knob. On its side was inscribed the words, "Merry Christmas." "Ha-ha-ha. He-he-he. Ho-ho-hoho," roared the Jolly mayor, most doubled up with laughter. "Well, that's a good one. That's a horse on me, surely. Oh, dear! Oh, dear! I shall surely die of laughter." Some of Mount VernoVs citizens who lack the mayor's :een perception of humor are going to ask one of the local papers to explain the Joke with proper dia grams and foot-nots. Something Else.

Wick Yoang on the Kales What Roblson Would Do for St. Louie Storlee Told by a Veteran Other liaaeball Notes of Interest. N 1878," observed Nick Young the other day, "a news paper editor in Philadelphia named Fitzgerald, advocated an in crease in the num ber of men on a ball team. He claimed that ten men were necessary to play a game of ball, and believed the tenth man should be located between first and second baae and called a left shortstop. Mr. Hulbert knocked this argument by comparing a ten-men ball team to a four-ball game of billiards between such cue experts as Jake Schaefer and Slosson. You often hear odd theories advanced about improvements in the game. When a change In the pitch lng rules was being agitated four year3 ago, John Gaffney suggested that the batting would be increased if the out fielders were confined behind a line to be located so many feet from the homo plate. Gaffney probably over looked the fact that Buch a rule would cripple one of the fielding features of the game. The suggestion of Mr. Hurst to allow the base-runners to overrun second and third base is now under discussion, though it is by no means a new suggestion. If Mr. Hurst's idea were adopted by the play ing rules committee the base-running feature of the game would be almost destroyed. Another suggestion made by John Morrill, is not quite practical. Mr. Morrill believes the pitcher should be removed from his present position in order to glvo the base-runners a chance to steal more bases. I have studied the pitching rule carefully, and find that the present distance about equalizes the attack and defense; that is, the aggressor, which is the pitcher, and the defense, who is the batsman Base-running would be enlivened if Tom Brown's 36x16 rubber frame were adopted and the pitcher was compelled to move from his slab every time he threw to the bases." Quite a Graft. Brooklyn's determination to play Sunday ball on its home grounds makes a nice little "sunfish liole" for the Orioles and tho Senators. The three other Eastern teams Bostons Philadelphias and New Yorks do not play on the first day of the week. This of a necessity will give all the Eastern Sunday dates at President Byrne's park to Baltimore and Washington. Perhaps Ned Hanlon and Gus Schmelz are not "smacking their chops" in an ticipation of the fat Sunday gates at Brooklyn next summer. Instead of "laying up" on Sunday and playing to washday crowds on Monday, they will gather in enough at a Sunday matinee at Brooklyn to make a big dent in the semi-monthly pay rolls of their clubs. What Roblson Would Do. President Roblson has a wonderful scheme for strengthening the St. Louis team. He is willing to give up five of his Cleveland players, providing ho can pick five as good men, if not bet ter, from the other major league teams. At the same time he exempts Cincinnati and Baltimore. Why not let each club in the major league con tribute a player if St. Louis must be made stronger? Baltimore and Cin cinnati should do their share toward Strengthening the Mound City team as well as the others. This is especially true in the case of Cincinnati, as that club has done more than any other in weakening St. Louis by purchasing its star players. What assurance would the major league clubs have that the olayers would not be sold after the PRESIDENT ROBISON. team had been strengthened? Robl son made a rather funny break, if he is correctly quoted, when he said that Baltimore would hardly consent to give up any of its players as it wants a champion team, so that it can again win the pennant. Well, that is rich. That is as much as saying that Boston, New York, Philadelphia and other ma jor league clubs didn't want champion teams so that they could win the pen nant as well as Baltimore. It is pretty safe bettln; that President Roblson would bo doubly benefited if his scheme wect through, which la hardly likely. Byrne's BenalMe. President Byrne of tho Brooklyn Club, makes the following sensible suggestion that Is worthy of considera tion: "All sorts of rules can be trained for the government of baseball, but the? are usolese if not enforced. I believe that a rule should be passed compelling the major league clubs to mke their players obey the rules un der a penalty. The trouble (a the past has been a tendency on tha part of certain club officials to stand by their players in violation of the rules. In other words, when an umpire has. In compliance with the strict wording of tho rules, fined or ordered an of fending player out of the game, an im mediate howl for the removal of the Judge of the play has been invariably sent to Mr. Young by the magnate whoso player was made to suffer. This proved to be th heaviest kind of handicap for the umpire, who gradu ally allowed himself t be ridden over rough shod. If the major league could .force the clubs to sustain the umpires and not their own players, a great deal of trouble would be averted." Reminiscences of a Veteran. Richard J. Pearce, the veteran ex professional shortstop, while In a remi niscent mood, recently, related a num ber of Interesting stories. Among oth er things ho said: "Eddy Cuthbert was the first man I ever saw sliding to a base. This was in 1865, when he was a member of the old Keystone Club of Philadelphia. The Keystones were on a visit to Brooklyn, and play ed several games before they met tho Atlantics on a Saturday, at the Caplto line Grounds. I was catching and Tommy Pratt was pitching for the At lantics. Cuthbert had reached first base, and started to steal second, when I threw to Crane to head off Cuthbert, and Crane had the ball in plenty of time to touch him; but to our amaze ment Cuthbert made a great head slldo for tho base. This was the first time DICK PEARCE. we had ever seen the play, and It fool ed us no little, but we laid for him and caught him after that. After Ferguson joined the Atlantics In 18C6 he became very clever at sliding to any of tho bases." New Vork'a Latest Surprise. From the New York Herald: Tho New York Baseball Club has prepared a limited number of handsome silver souvenir complimentary cards entitling the holders of to all the privileges of the Polo Ground during the season of 1897. They are very artistically de signed and engraved, and are altogeth er the prettiest souvenirs ever made by a ball club. The silver cards will be presented to tho most prominent friends of the club. Diamond Glints. The players of the Cincinnati team are practicing at New Orleans. It is announced that all the Brook lyn players who have signed for the coming season have done so at re duced terms. Shortstop Hulen and Outfielder Mertes, who were last season with the Philadelphia Club, have been trans ferred to the Columbus Club of tho Western League. President Von der Ahe had a great team when he was a member of the old American Association, but he has not had much of a one since the demise of that organization. Gus Weyhing, the veteran profes sional pitcher, is no longer manager of the Fort Wayne team. He says that he has resigned, but does not give his reasons for doing so. Illinois is now falling in line with Missouri and other Western states. A bill is to be introduced into the Illi nois legislature to abolish Sunday ball p'aylng. Ohio aud Kentucky are yet to be heard from. At a special meeting of the partly organized Southeastern League at Ma con, Ga., President Bosche resigned. Little business was transacted, and the league adjourned to meet a week later. Carney Flynn, who was on the New York Club's pay roll last spring, and who later figured with Farrell in a deal that took them to Washington and brought Joyce to New York, will play with the Virginia team of the Atlantic League during the coming season. The Alameda Alerts defeated tho Piute Indians by 6 to 2 the other day at San Francisco, Cal. McKee, who pitched seven innings for the victors, holding the losers down to two safo hits and retiring eleven of them on strikes, was relieved by Krug, who pitched the remaining Innings and al lowed tho losers only one safe hit, from which they scored a run. Captain Ewlng of the Cinclnnatis dees not agree with some others that bowling Is a good thing for a pitcher. "My reason for thinking that bowling will not help a pitcher," said Ewing, recently, "la that the motion used in bowling is entirely different from that used in pitching. Bowlers use an un derhand motion, while very few pltch eri, Jf any, ever use ai underhand ball. Once in a while it is tried, but the majority of pitchers lepend upon the overhand wnilon."
