', KILLING IHE GAME Plans Shape for Burial of the National Pastime Here, This Season. KNOCK OUT LEAGUE BALL Richmond is the only city of its size in the middle west, probably in the en tire country, that it not represented in some professional base ball league. The fans here long for league ball, but they sign in vain, so far as the Rich mond Amusement company, which controls the lease on Athletic Park, is concerned. This organization will this year again attempt to cram inde pendent baseball down the throats of the disgusted lovers of the sport. This operation was attempted last year, but with poor results, as the company dis banded its outfit of relics before the season was a third over. This year the company, which has no desire to repeat the independent baseball experiment, on its own hook again, but which still desires to keep Richmond off the professional baseball map, will lease its plant, probably, to either a Dayton semi-pro manager, named Huckens, or to a colored team, the Giants. A decision will be reach ed at a meeting tomorrow night. Richmond, as "a baseball town, got a knockout last year. Verily, it ap pears the plans have been shaped this season'for a burial.
