Constitution for Richmond Ath?
letic Association Is Practi?
cally Adopted at Conference.
I A mass of work was dono by the com
: mitte? appointed to draft a constitu?
tion and by-laws for the Richmond
Athletic Association, at the meeting
held yesterday afternoon In the blue
room of the Central Y. M. C. A.
; Kvery member was in his place when
chairman Hazen called the meeting to
(order. Physical Director lleithard rep?
resented the V. M 0 A ; Physjpal In?
structor .Jones represented the John
Marshall Athletic Association, Mr. Mc
Sweeney was on hand for McClill's
Catholic I'nion; Sheppard Crump took
care of the Hiues, Mr. I,ovenstein. for
I the Y. M II. A Allen Kaville for the
Virginia Boat Club, and Dr. Hazen,
Ifeg chairman, for the Medical College
af Virginia. In addition. Secretary ?
McKee. of the Y M. C. A.. Director I
Tousey, of the Church Civic Assoeia- j
tion. and representatives of the press
' were at the conference.
The constitution was practically
adopted. Much discussion arose as
to the representation each of the affil?
iated organizations should have In the
councils of the federation, some hold?
ing that there should be a delegate for j
each UM members. This was finally
voted down and it was agreed that each
organization would be entitled to one I
voting member, but that no organiza- I
tion, p. member of the federation, with
less than fifty members, should be al
lowed to vote.
Probably the greatest discussion arose
over the question us to whether the
federation should seek tho protection
of the Amateur Athletic I'nion and
this question was still unsettled at ad?
journment. A committee of three was
appointed to discuss the question and
to report to the full committee at a|
meeting to be held Saturduy afternoon
in the Y. M. C. A. at 4 o'clock, at which
lime the by-laws will be considered and
While the federation idea has rot
Ibeen officially adopted by the commit?
tee it is sure to prevail, though tho
federation will pledge itself to look
after the interests of the unattached
man. boy or girl who might want to
take some active part in athletics, and
attempt to organize them so that they,
too, might partake of the benefits
uccruing from organization. The dis?
cussions while comprehensive, were at
all times pleasant, each member being
desirous of hearing all sides of the
The BlUSS, at an organization, natur?
ally want affiliation with tho A. A. I'.,
for the reason that an open track meet
will be held between the Blues and Rich?
mond College, und this meet must be
held tinder the sanction of the A. A. V.
It is hoped and believed the* the final
solution of the question will be satis- |
factory to all hands concerned.
When the committee meets again
Saturday afternoon work will be
expedited because most of the men
will bo familiar with the tentative con?
stitution and by-laws drafted by Mr.
Reithard. of the Y. M. C. A. Both in
dlviduallp and collectively the mem
bad felt that a great amount of good,
probably the greatest amount of good,
could be accomplished by going after
the fellows who do not belong to any :
organization. The organization is on a
good way toward ultimate success and
when Temporary Chairman Tousey
calls the meeting of tho entire body
after the committee has completed its ?
work. Richmond will face a new era in ,
the development of her young men,
boys and girls.

In the Wake of the Game
By GUS MALBERT
Introducing Mr. S. Griffin, formerly of Richmond, now of Toledo, Ohio.
Mr. Oriffin once wa* a well known character around Richmond. At intervals he
mays baseball, but his principal pursuit, especially when the snow flies, is out
ciaming the clam, in other words, he makes tho Sphinx look or sound like a five
o clock tea or a church ?ociable. But he has written, so listen to his chirps .
thought I would write you a few lines to let you know how the world goes
above the Mason and Dixon line." he begins his lilt, which, while not overly long
on information, smacks somewhat of a king in the Land of Highbrow. But to
continue I suppose you think 1 have a sort of established or silent partnership
in the game of news, but the truth of the matter Is I have been at a standstill
myself, waiting to pull off one or two deals, but so far there is nothing doing, and
I urn expecting on each mail something definite. You know
"There'si fire In the furnace, but the enow is on the ground,
i nere s dope in every curner, but stickers can't be found?
not at this time of year, anyway."
Continuing along this line, Mr Orlffln confidingly narrates that ha thinks
oreenahna is a regular ball player, and that he will prove even better than Kiod
tirafl. u rather good recommendation. To add a little lustre to tho name of Bres
n*han. feeling that Cousin Roger, since he loft the Henpecka. has hist much of his
glow, Mr Oriffin imparts the information that Bresnahan Is even better than the
more distinguished peison bearing the same patronymic.
I Really. Oriffin's letter is alluminatlng. about as Illuminating as a cloudy
n,gnt with the street lights gone wrong. Tennant Is coming back because Steve
reefs that his speed Is going to help, if it can be properly directed. Charles will
also join the clan, while tho other garden proposition is still wide open for some
energetic and enterprising youngster who wants to win his spurs On the Infield
u Wl" stand pat with Raley at first, himself at second, Newton at short and
Bresnuhan at third As catchers, thsre win be John Mace, Rogers and Lusky.
Ntevo is vey oertuin that he will never try another season an old head back of the
line. Of pitchers, ho haa an assortment of rive already ? Harry ??riffin, Charlie
strain. Harvey Bussey. Btirlesbn and Pitt?but will add two recruits about the
middle of March, and the rest of the clan will follow about the 34th. He semis
regards anil greetings to all of the funs, and adds that he ie "just aching for the
rug to decorate the new park."
Secretary Bradley says that he will begin sending out contracts Fndav and
hopes to have the work completed by Saturday In all there will be fourteen
confraots to turn loose for the consideration of the men who are expected to
wear Colt uniforms next season. Bob Carter will not return. That has been
Charlie Shaffer is back on the Job. Ho reports himself a? entirely well and
ready to do his share toward making the league a big success Just at present he Is
worried about pitchers. Young McCrary has been ut school ull winter and may
or may not return Finnerun went to Philadelphia with Dodge and another of
his"tafT has taken a civil service examination for the revenue department of the
Government. leaving him something to worry about. r-haTer is anxious to get
h..ld of Jimmio Huicher. the local sandlot. but finds that h i is not alone us there
use one or two othei clubs in the circuit who are bidding | jr his services. Jlmmie
? tpects to start with Richmond College this Spring and hasn t decided whether
ttm wants to play professional baseball or not.
Doc Avers still insists that he will not. report to Clark Griffith at Charlotts
TiHe When the Nationals go Into Spring training quarters Doc will be in the
?tidal of his examination and he will not leave them for baseball He is perfectly
willing to do anything Griffith asks of him in the way of keeping In condition.
As a matter ol lu'-t the boy is always in shape He works out in the gym each
day, has no bad habits and a a perfect physical specimen What he might lose
through nut reporting with the rest of the squad is the guidance of Griffith who
could teach him a lot ?f tricks of the trade. If Griffith persists in hie demand that
Ayers report with the rest of his men. he will lose a mighty valuable man.
William Abbot Witnian, who headed the United States League last vear. is
reported to bo on his way to Richmond to confer with Captain Morgan R. Mills,
relative to establishing a club here in the reorganised league the coming season.
Mr. Wittnau will be welcomed but this time the people will have to be shown
before they tie their faith to an organization which promised so much last season
and which failed to pan out. Like Joe Jackson, commenting on Washington being
in the league, we say, too, if Richmond Is in, one link in the chian is already broken
Willie Hoppe Is setting things afire in the billiard world of Washington. If
some of our local men are on to their Jobs let them get busy und try to get the
champion here lor un exhibition game. It would be worth the effort.
The business like manner in which the committee named to draft a consti?
tution and by-laws for the Richmond Athletic Association went after the work
in hand spells success for the movement. Never have a body of men given more
serious thought to the task assigned.
Four teams in class A is not a bad start for BjL hmond in the intercity bowl?
ing tournament. Before the time cornea for the nVitry list to close this number
will probably be increased by two or three additional teams.
The Phillies are really sold. Without endeavoring to be funny, we might
say t hat the deal is locked. The Pittsburgh man made good, and is now the head
and shoulders of the ex-Kogel clan. Horace it: the meanwhile having purchased
himself a hotel at Atlantic City. If Charlie Dooin can drive the cross-eyed girl
to cover, can rid himself of that inevitable jinx, lie should give Pittsburgh and
the Giants a merry chase for the rag.
By the way, the wire reports yesterday, failing to record a game with the
Giants for the Colts, was all wrong McOraw plays in Norfolk on April 3 and
comes here the following day. That's straight from McOraw, who doesn't
know how the error occurred.
Frank Chance ie to play first base and Hal Chase is to play second Now we
are waiting for some of tho facetious to remurk that Chase has his Chance.
The rapid decrease in the holdout ranks is not surprising. Holdouts usually I
diminish in direct ratio with the winter pocket change, and It's been nearly four
months since a payday. Most of those stout holdouts are now fighting how
they can make a touch to tide them over, for it's a vastly longer time from Feb?
ruary 15 to March 13 than it is from October I to February 15, despite the apparent
Again we arise to remark. Fannys there will be a meeting of the rules commit?
tee on the Amateur Baseball Commission, some time, somewhere

LYNCH LEAVES TO
Johnson's Illness Causes Change
- of Base for National Com?
President Thomas Lynch of the Va- ?
tional League will leave here to-day 1
for Chicago, where he will a;tend the
postponed annual meeting of the Na- j
tional Commission, whu h will he held
in the offices of the American League .
in the Fisher Building to-morrow.
The meeting was scheduled for Cin?
cinnati on January C. but was post?
poned on account, of be Illness of Ban i
Johnson in Chicago.
As a coi.rtesy to Johnson the com- '
mission decided to have its meeting
in Chicago, instead of in Cincinnati,
where the con.mission has-its offices.
Garry Herrmann. < bairman of the 1
commission, and President Lynch trans- '
acted a great deal of the commiseion'a
business last week.
However, the commission will have
to elect officers and approve the annual
report at the Chicago meeting. The
minor league salary limit question
also wilt be taken up again, though
Herrmann and Lynch already have de?
cided not to enforce the individual
limit. The postponed meeting of the
commission is not expected to last more
than twe days.
It is not probable that President '
Barrow of the International League will
attend the meeting. Barrow was at the
Cincinnati conference last week, and
caught a bad cold, which has kept him
Indoors ever since he returned to New
York Barrow is a member of tbe com?
mittee appointed by the National As?
sociation to bring the slary limit ques?
tion before the commission.
