All residents of the block to be Im proved are urged to make contemplat ed Improvements at once so as to avoid the necessity of tearing up tho street in tin future, after It has been finish ed. Those who propose to install jxind water pipts or to make sewer connec tions will 11 ikI it much less expensive to do "that vork now"7 than "a few months Liter, after the street has bun macadamized. As the village Is meeting the expenses of the Improve ments uliimt to bo made, it Is to be expected that property holders will be called upon to defray the cost of rc r;tiriiiK the street If It Is necessnry to tear it uj in the future. It h:is not been decided so far whether nny work will bo done on Florida street this year. Last ear considerable money was expended In gnuling the street and cutting down n llg hill of almost solid rock and the Mrect Is now practically ready for other Improvements.

SPORTING NEWS OP THE WORLD NEW BASEBALL HELPS BATTING CORK CENTERED SPHERE MAY RESULT IN CHANGE OF STYLE OF PLAY IN MA JOR LEAGUES. There has been a good deal of com ment locally over the fact that the players In the big leagues are appar ently hitting the ball harder nnd more frequently this season than ever be fore, larger scores and also more er rors than usual are a feature of many of the games. In the opinion of many sporting experts, this Increased batting Is due to the fact that the balls used by 'big leagues this year are livelier than Any balls since the (.1,1 days, when much of the ball 'was rubber and ii base hit was generally a home run. Thri livelier J.al! has cau.--.or: ;i sw it: h In the style of defense of sonic of the teams already, notably the Chicago Cubs, nnd this promises to bo the best batting year base ball Jiias had Ih ten years. The manufacturers of base balls a year ago began using a cork center instead of rubber. At first Iti was unsatisfactory, but by many ex perlments u ball has been made that FOR LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE. Jimmy Coffroth Willing To Hang Up Big Purse for Bout.

Knockout Drown and Freddy Welsh. Jimmy says if he can get the winner of tho Wolgast-Moran bout with MeFarland he will draw over $:(). 000. It seems strange to select Fred dy Welsh in preference to Matt Wells, tho Kngllsh champion, who beat Welsh for the title over there. If Hugh D. Mcintosh would step Into the game right now and begin bidding the chances aro tho purse would run Into gay figures, but the Australian pro motor is satisfied for the time to han dle his F.uropean ventures. baseball) STANDINGS OF THE TEAMS. McALEER PICKS ATHLETICS. Washington Manager Still Fears Con nie Mack's Crew. Chicago. PI., May 16. Jimmy Mc Alef r, leader of the Washington Sena tors says he Philadelphia Athletes will be jn tho pennant race all the way and fighting for the pennant at the cud. The leader of the Senatorial band takes no stock In the stories that the Athletes have gono back. Ho thinks "lhey are even stronger than they were lart year. This means that the other ' , .. ... , , , teams In the American league wil have any further effort to provide for niote1, , ,, .. , .. . .. batlj I to do considerable strengthening If they are to remain In the hunt for tho pen- iuosi or ino star outneiriers or tho',,,,,, big leagues aro now playing deeper than has been their custom for tin past fivo years. They found too many balls were being hit over their heads when playing In the m-ual position. As soon as they nre driven back, it opens up tho space In front of them for short base hits and gives the base runners better chance to advance after fly balls have been caught. It also makes tho Infield Jobs harder,' because the ground ers are hotter nnd harder to handle. So there seems to be no question that the manufacturers havo furnished the game with the means of moro batting. and have done it innocently. Tho effect of the Introduction of the new baseball Into tho play of tho major leagues is very apparent In the figures, One day last week, there were 12fi runs scored nnd 177 hits made by the teams In tho two major longues. In tho American league the average 1 number of hits was 11, whereas the average for the entire season IukL ye.ar-.was about The Chicago sporting writers nre al ready complaining . against the new ball, claiming It to bo too lively. How ever, as there has bcert nn agitation for moits hitting for several years, It Is believed the Innovation will be very satisfactory to the fans. Incidentally the Detroit crew has the manager of tho Senators guessing. MeAleer says that all the fans in tin cast are surprised at the pace tho Tigers have sot and that they are tm p.ble to understand it. National League. AV.

It Is noticea ble that Walter Johnson has not the speed this spring that made him "the marvelous pitcher In former cam paigns. As a result strike-outs are not as numerous, nnd bis whole stylo of pitching has been changed. Whore Johnson would not pitch more than two or three curve balls during a game when he was M bis best, ho Is curving every other one now, besides resorting to n change of pace frequently. Put that speed with which the ball fairly hopped over the plate is sadly mlssin. and until It returns Johnson will not go through hall games ns ho did In for mer seasons. Thero Is nothing wrong with John son's arm. It Is perfectly sound nnd probably stronger than ever, but bis physical condition Is prxir. On tho re cent trip ho lost 10 pounds In weight, nnd the natural effect of this Is that he Is weak. He Is on tho mend now, however, nnd should gradually Improve.

JOHNSON HAS NEW STUNT. Chicago, 111., May 16. The effete east is to get something new, for when Jack Johnson appears on a New York stage during the week of May 22 It will not bo ns "Jack Johnson, heavy weight champion," but as "Jack Johnson, mu sician." Johnson will not display his muscles nor do a boxing turn. He will tell what he declares ore funny yarns, sing what ho declares are real songs, nnd ploy what he says is real music on his big 'hull" fiddle. Johnson says that If Jim Corbett can make 'a hit with his histrionic ability, he Is sure he can. SPORTING EDITOR'S NOTES. Pitchers Moore. p.o be and Rowan are shooting them over for the Quak ers in classy fashion. They call "Pinj," P.odie of the White Sox a fence-buster, and he looks all of that sure enough. Jim McGulre. former manager of tho Cleveland Naps, is back on his old Job of scouting for the Naps. John Covaleski, a brother of the fam ous "Giant Killer" has signed with the San Antonio Texas League team. He is an outfielder. It looks as If the teams In the second division of the National League bae little or no chance to break through and enjoy the company of the elite in tho first division. "Pugs" Raymond is pitching great ball for the Giants. If the erratic Ar thur sticks to the soda fountain there Is nothing to It but his name In tho baseball hall of fame. Jim Iiynn putting A I Kaufman down for tho count was a big surprise to the boxing fans. (Pat Nelson says that he has not signed to box Jack Redmond or any other boxer. Pat is going to n camp in Maine and try and get In condition. Promoter Mcintosh has signed P.ill Pnpke and Jim Sullivan, middleweight champions of England, for a tangle to take place In London the last week of this month. Johnny Evers Is sure the Cubs are going to win again this year. "Our team Is in better shape this year than It has been at any time since 1906." says the grout little second baseman. George Is one of the commonest of English names and will doubtless be come even more common now that tho fifth George sits upon the throne of England. Put there was a time when tho name of George was a symbol of party strife. In tho early days of the Hanoverians George savored of Wblg- glsm. while James or Charles betok ened nn unashamed espousal of tho Jacobite cause. So acute was tho state of feeling In Manchester that some of the clergy at the Collegiate church re fused to bestow "the name of George upon an Infant In baptism, sheltering themselves behind an old English can on which empowers ministers to de cline to confer nny "indecent or pagan name.
