E BASEBALL ctiwtyln The Local Field Is Arousing Much Interest. A PERMANENT TEAM. Secretary Pickersgill Has Received Com munication From Roohelle Stating That He la In Fine Trim? Tickets Now On Sale? Should Sell 100 To Make The / Came a Success. I Secretary Piokersgill, of the Mar ?ions, has received a letter from "Gus" Rochelle in which he states that he is in excellent, phyBioal trim and pre Dared to do the best work of his life in the box this season. The Marions will have a remarkably fast outfield 'this season, with Traeger in left, "Tommy" Lyons in o-8?tru and "Gus" Kelly in right. ?Jarl Traeger has announced that he will not go South this year and will be ?with the Marions permanently. This year extra efforts will be made in order to make the Marions at the ?outset of the season bo strong that no changes will be necessary daring the summer. Last year through unavoid able oircumstanoes the team was con stantly changing its oomplexion and kg while the cranks bad an opportunity ? to see a large number of excellent ? players, yet it was only at the cost of a great'deal of annoyanoe to the man fagement, as signing good players at short notioe is no easy task. Season tickets are now on sale and can be had from any of the players or officers of the team. Although the previous reoord has been fifty season ticktes, it will be necessary to see 100 of the cardboards this rear in order to give the team a proper start. The amount realized thereby will not go far when one oonsiders that the run uing expenses of the team exceed $100 a game. Besides repairs to the grounds will cost considerable money as will the outfitting of the team. It is now tip to the looal fans an 1 admirers of fast baseball to show their apprecia tion of the efforts that are being made to provide this oity with the best that's going in the line of baseball by coming to the front with the neces sary five spot and oashing in.

Tooker, of this oity, mate of the schooner "Sylvia 0. Hall," tells of an interesting; trip from Brnnswiok, Qa. , to New Tork. In Dart, he says : "We arrived in New York all safe and well after a very nice bnt exciting trip of fonr and one-half days, aver aging 210 miles a day. We fell in with the "abandoned schooner Mary Morse of abont 1,000 tons harden. She apparently had been abandoned bnt a short time, and I thought we had a prize. "Mvself with two men boarded her at daylight G,i Wednesday last, and it meant a oonple of thousand to me if we conld get her into port. After fonr hours hard work we got a line to her, but our vessel was under reefed sails and Oaptain Falkenburg conld not tiandle her very good under the conditions, and then, ^before noontime, as hard luok would have it, the wind got to blowing so hard, the hawser broke and away went our prize all within a minute. I wanted to make a second attempt, but as there was every indication of a heavy storm the captain disoouraged me. "We were about ten miles distant off Atlantio City. The steamer " Wac caman" spoke us, but would not take the sohooner in tow while we were on board. "The 'Morse' was in fair condition to reach port, reefed sails all set, but tho wind was from the northwest and threatened a fierce blow. The vessel was loaded with lumber bound from Mobile to New York. "It would have been a big prize if we had only got her into port, and think we would have accomplished it if the 'Sylvia Hall' had kept up her reputation, but she was hard to man age when we began to use her as a tug boat.

I TEN BOOR DAY ASD BETTER WAGES Thla Dealred End Seem* to Be Prac tically Attained? A Hopeful state hood'* Hepreaentatlve. NEW HAVEN, Conn., March 31. After a conference which lasted until late last evening the grievance com mittee of the trainmen of the New Yolk, New Haven and Hartford rail road and the committee of the direct ors who have been considering changes in the schedule adjourned until 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. In behalf of the men Valentine Fitzpatrick, the representative of the Trainmen's Na tional Brotherhood, who took part in the conference, gave out the informa tion that an understanding had been reached on many points, but that the question of wages still remains unset tled. He expressed a hope that this im portant matter might be adjusted at the meeting tomorrow. No statement was issued by the road officials, President Hall declaring that there was nothing to be said at the present stage of the proceedings. Mr. Fitzpatrick's statement contains the following: "It is probable that the company will concede to the men in the freight serv ice a ten hour day. The men in the passenger service will be graded ac cording to mileage, and we think the company will concede a certain num ber of hours to constitute a day's work. The conference throughout was very pleasant, and every disposition to be fair was shown on both sides. The men at the Harlem river yards sent two men here to find out what the delay was about. The company and we, too, are anxious to have them know the exact situation. We wish to tell them that all is being done in their interests that can be done, and I personally wish to assure them that they will soon be working under better conditions than ever before. The disparity between their wages for eight hours and the wages paid to men on the Jersey side . of the river for a few more hours has j caused them discontent. But it will not be long before they will be satisfacto rily readjusted as to their hours and wages. "With regard to the question of rules and regulations governing the work of the men, I can safely say that that matter has been settled up satisfacto rily to the men. "The men ask as to wages in the re adjusted demands made to the direct ors that freight trainmen receive 2 cents per mile and that flagmen re , ceive 2 1-10 cents. With regard to the passenger men, they have been so graded that their hours of service will 1 be in accordance with a miles run schedule and compensation given ac cordingly. "The committee concedes to the com pany the right to hau^jtSTHaiiy cars to a train as 'LhP^linV "permits and to put ' as many men in the crews to operate those trains as the company finds nec essary."

John D. Long Able to Be Oat. BOSTON, March 30.? Former Gov ernor John D. Long, who for nearly tfere* months has been a patient at St. Margaret's infirmary, is now able to go out of doors, taking short walks In the "toijolt* of the bo*?it?> RESTS IN HISTORIC SPOT. Where "Bratt Bill" Anthony, Her* of the Battleship Maine. Wai Laid Away. Students of American history and who have given particular study to the incidents and details of the battle of Long Island, in the days of the revolu tion, have made the interesting dis covery that the last resting place of "Brave Bill" Anthony is in historic ground. This hero of the tragedy in Havana harbor, which hastened the conflict between the United States and Spain, lies in the very path followed by the British under Lord Howe when they stole around to the rear of the American forces in the battle of Long Island, and, surprising the pal riots, ef fected their defeat, says the New York Times. The grave of Anthony is on a gen tle slope dipping down into a little valley near that part of tie cemetery called Beacon hill. In the days of the revolution this vale waa known as Jamaica pass. From the Jamaica road, as it was then known, at a point which is now Jamaica avenue and Ful ton street, East New York, this pass, to-day given over io resting places of the dead, wound through the hills to the northwestward, twisting and turn ing until h became a lane, which was known as Rockaway path, and which led into the Jamaica road, some dis tance to the westward. When Lord Howe, with his redcoats and Hessians, crossed from the British camp on Staten Island to Long Island, and prepared to move from the shore of New York bay upon the Americans intrenched in Brooklyn, he found thai there were four routes by which the important positions established by the patriots could be approached, in force. These were the Coast road, Flatbush pass, Bedford pass, and, in the rear of the Americans, Jamaica pass. Leav ing half of his forces to engage the Americans on -the south, Howe, with Sir Henry Clinton commanding his ad vance guard, made a wide detour through Flatlands and what is now East New York with the idea of taking the Americans in the rear. The Brit ish commander found that all of the passes mentioned, with the exception of Jamaica pass, were strongly guard ed against attack. The patriot*, ap parently expecting no move from that quarter, had neglected to properly guard and patrol Jamaica pass, to which Howe marched stealthily in the night. When Clinton in the van reached Howard's half-way tavern, which stood near the entrance to the pass at what is now the junction of Jamaica avenue, Broadway and Fulton street, East New York, he compelled the young son of Ma}. Howard, the inn keeper, to guide him and his men through the pass and along the Rock away path. The British came out again upon the Jamaica road, near what is now the Bedford district of Brooklyn, taking the Americans by surprise in the morning and compell ing them to retreat upon New YorJr. ' In this historic ground, where on ?that nfgfit in the days that were mak ing for the creation of the great re public, the long, silent column of red coats wound stealthily through the hills to deal a heavy blow to the pa triot cause, sleeps "Brave Bill" An thony, hero of another conspicuous day in American history. TRADE IN PORK AND BEANS. Have Become a Staple Pood la the Hotel* and Hentaarants of Chicago. One hundred and fifty bushels of beans are used every week by three baked pork and bean bakeries in Chi cago. Baked pork and beans have be come as staple an article of diet as bread in almost all hotels, restaurants and boarding houses in Chicago. It's a regular feature of the free lunch in saloons, and figures on the noonday bill at all the clubs, says the Tribune. While many hotels and restaurants make their own baked pork and beans, there are three factories, orbakeries, or whatever they may be termed ? bean foimdriis. the boys in the neighbor hood of tht>e institutions call them ? in Chicago. These three bakeries cook 1,0 thing but baked pork and btnns. which they send out -in great quantities every day. They all sell at wholes-ale. The restaurant and hotel people 'put the baked beans in large one, two and three gallon jars, or even larger. They dish the beans out in the little earthen pots about the size of a teacup, and, after placing the tempting piece of pork over the top. warm the beans over the oven, and then serve to their customers. In the pork and bean bakeries the beans are soaked for a day in cold wa ter. Then the water is run off and they are placed in the pans and are ready for the oven. A hot fire is kept in the furnaces for hours before they are ready for the beans. The fires are drawn out and the beans are placed in the oven at one o'clock each day. At five the next morning they are taken out, and in a short time they have been dished out into the jars and are be ing taken about the city and distrib uted ready for the luncheon hour.

South African Region Where the Na tive* Tame the Anlmala and Make Use of Them. Upogoro, in Gevman East Africa, ?ays The Sphere, has only recently come into prominence. The whole country is mountainous in character, and several peaks attain an altitude of 4,500 feet. One of the drawbacks of the country is the presence in large numbers of wild animals, chief among- which is the leopard. Although sparing the Europeans, yet he does not fear to burst into tbe native huts and seize any human being who may be within reach. Should he not succeed in ef fecting an entrance, he lies in wait until some unfortunate native ven tures out. If there is a goat pen or a chicken roost, he satisfied himself there, but failing this fears not to attack the in habitants. Once satisfied, he retires to his lair, and, being tracked, often falls a prey "to the European rifle. Young leopards are often caught by the natives, and are bartered for money or articles of clot-lung. These are sometimes tamed, and though not 60 trustworthy as ?the dog, yet *' "ov off their wild nature, and are ,?d for practical purposes. They are used for draw' carts, and it is by no me-ani ai mon to see them harnessed ? the mountain guns, which they pull along with the utmost facility. Filtrated Importance. Clara ?
