.Iiv dissatisfied with the Dingley

“We contend for adoption by the

of a resolution calling the congress
to meet in special session to deter

new measure to meet changed condi

make such modifications as experi

This is rather indefinite, but dem

arisen from the Dinglev law even

Political alignment has radically
changed within the last four years.
Roosevelt has disclaimed much that
hi- party has stood for. He hu
adopted many of Mr. Bryan’s poll

notably the railway rate legislation,
w hich has been a cardinal principle
ot Mr. Bryan s platform. Roosevelt’*
candidate has also declared himself
in favor of an income tax, which was
passed under Cleveland’s last admin
istration but declared unconstitu

sentiment toward Roosevelt’s re

T:iis would mean a death blow to
local and self-government. He has
even declared that in case the con

federal authority it should be mark

i Imll It reuiulns for Manager Jimmy Me
| Aleer, of the 8t. Louis Americans, to
suggest a practical remedy for not
only this, but to Increase the butting
as well. It Is nothing more nor less than ,
Increasing the length of the batters' i
box and giving the batters more room
In which to maneuver.
At present the hatters' box is six
feet long and four feet wide, hulf of it i
being In front of the plate and half he- j
hind. Me A leer thinks that an exten
sion of two or three feet on the front
I end of the box would help the butter
along a lot, without in any way Inter- |
fering with the present arrangement
j of the game. This would give the bat
I ter u chance to run on the ball and 1
I lilt either a spit ball, curve, or breuk
before the latter had a chance to devl
r '
ate from a straight line. Under the
present rules If a batter hits a ball
while out of the batters’ box he Is
called out.
Most of the batters now stand close
into the plate, or on a line with the
center of It, In order to Judge whether
i \ ball is over or not. This gives them
| *nly the part of the box in front of the
| plate In which to move, or less than '
ihree feet. Even a good, long stride
will take a batter over the front line
of the box. The after three feet of
i he box are useless ground for most
With even two feet more added to
the front of the box batter could get
i running start at the ball and hit it
before there was a chance for a break
