The Leaarue magnates are disturbed. They do not smile and murmur blutf when the talk of the playerg' brother hood is mentioned. They laughed at first and referred to the Iron olad agree ment and reserve rule. It was all their own way of course. Well, It is not so much their own way now and they have found it out. Eminent lawyers have closely studied that contract system and have reached the conclusion that it is an agreement that is not binding and the players can safely break it. The League syndicate realizes their utter helplessness if the players revolt and organize clubs of their own. The people would go to see the games of the star players and the League could not get sufficient star talent to enable them to compete with the Players' Brother hood. The League, however, is making preparations for the fight if the stars rebel. This is evident from the very sweet invitation they have extended to the delegates of the minor leagues to meet with them and have a pleasant talk and transact some important business. This is the first time that the League magnates have bestowed so much atten tion on the minor leagues. They have given them protection tinder the League agreement to avoid complication», but have never shown any disposition to clasp the hand of the representatives of the smaller associations of clubs. The minor lengue delegates are not to be caught by flattery. They know that the league syndicate has some ulterior motive in this sudden exhibition of affec tion, and they will meet to guess what the object of the magnates is, and make preparations to avoid being entangled iu the meshes of the net that will be spread to cather them in, Τ anw Cnn η «ni ] m* .Tames X Rraden. of this city, the president of the Atlantic Association, this morning. He showed me the very j>ollte invitation extended by the Arbitration Committee of the Na tional League to meet them at the Fifth Avenue Hotel on Monday, November It. The same invitation had been sent to the International, Western and other leagues. The Spaldjng-Day-Young com bine have undoubtedly arranged α plan by which they can make a successful strag gle against the players' Brotherhood and prevent the latter frota recruiting from the ranks of the minor leagnes as ball players only last as stars for a decade and players must step in to All the vacancies. Thus they would kill the brotherhood in "a few years by closing the avenues from which they obtain new talent. The gentlemen of the minor leagues being suspicious of the league magnates who want about all there is to be had in the shape of money for baseball playing, have compared notes, and Counsellor Braden has a letter inviting him to a con ference of the delegates who will repre sent the minor leagues at the consulta tion with the National Leagues' Com mittee. Matters iu baseball circles are certainly at sixes and sevens, and next season there will be a decidedly lively competition if the league owners do not come down from their high perch. They hate to be brought down to the level of the players in a business sense. They have dictated fo long that it will be a bitter dose to . have to listen and accede to terms of the ' players. If they act as the monopolists and autocrats that they have been, and think that capital will always win against labor,they may discover that it will be an instance where capital was defeated. J-ίβΙ JL lie III nrCUH· If the National League bosses and the ,. ___JBrotherhood of. Players do not effect a compromise baseball will have such a boom next season as has never before bee a witnessed. It will be a good thing for the national game if there is a falling out of the bosses and players. Interest will be arroueçd and people who now content themselves with readine reports of games will go and see the contests. If a compromise is not arranged then that movement to estab lish a league in this State should be pushed. It will pay. Messrs. Clark, McCartin, Shannon, Cuminings and the other baseball en thusiasts why not form a club and put it in the State League? The nucleus for a good team can be tound right here in Hudson county. Fitzgerald, Shannon, I)avin, Reilly, Cuff are the names of a few local players that can be secured. The Volunteers Slug Pins. The Volunteers did great work at Becker's alleys last evening.

Dolan made a plneky defense. He left an opening iu the seventh round and Breen planted his right with a swing on Dolan's neck. Dolan dropped and was napping when time was called.

I met a dozen happy and enthusiastic men last evening. They are all members of the clubs in the Jersey City Amateur Bowling League and the great start the League has made was the cause of their euthusiasm and joy. Not one had any fault to find with the arrangements and the schedule, and all had words of praise for the League officers and the delegates. Of course every club is ambitious to get the trophy, but what they most desire is to bring the amateur bowlers into a clpeer union and cement the bonds of friend ship. The league will be the means of en larging the circle of friends of the geu tlemeu who compose the clubs in the league when the season ends.

England's first class railroad fare is four cents per mile, second class three and third class two. Germany makes the slowest railroad dation traiils. The Leliigh Valley Company is build ing a locomotive with a lire engine attachaient to extinguish fires ulong the road. The Eiie management is making a fuss because gateuien do not make passengers show commutation tickets, passes uud trip tickets at the ferry gates. The rule will be strictly enforced hereafter. It is said that the Pennsylvania Rail road will abandon its passenger car yard at Waverly to freight business alone and will establish the passenger car yard for local trains at South Elizabeth. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company was the first in this country to adopt the English block signal system, and the first, trial was made in East Newark. Mow the company is trying iu several ways to im prove upon It. West of Pittsburg an automatic system is being tried and is giving satisfaction. On this system the passing trains adjust the switches. In other places east of Pittsburg the pneu matic system is being experimented with, and the switches are thrown by air press ure instead of by levers, chains and wires. Newarkers feei relieved by the fact that the Newark and New York trains no longer run upon the tnaiu line of the Cen tral at Cpmmuuipaw, but go to and come from Jersey City ou independent tracks. The big bend was always regarded as a point of danger. The Leslie Snow Plow Manufacturing Company has leased the. Grant Locomo tive Works, with privilege of purchase at a price named, and the industry, con stantly growing in importance, will prob ablv be located at Paterson permanently. The Baldwin Locomotive Works lias just finished a compound engine for the Baltimore and Ohio road.

THE SIX ROADS' GHOST. It is a British Officer Searching for tfis Body. "If you look sharp around here you may bo able to see a very fine article of ghost!" The above was the remark made by an old friend as they drove along, approach ing the south branch of the Railway river at the Six Roads. * "Ghost? Whose ghost?" was the nat ural query. "I have never seen the unquiet shade myself, but popular tradition assigns the specter to a handsome British officer who had hia career summarily adjourn ed sine die, at this first bridge while he was busy trying to coerce the revolu tionary rebels into love and duty for his master, King<Jeorge III." By the time he Jiad made this explana tion we wore across the bridge, and our horse had given a spasmodic jump as though he had seen the ghost, but it was only a ruminative cow that breathed a »igh in the near-by pasture. "Well, regarding your ghost. What is its history and who lias seen it?" "Several people claim to have seen it, and it is also fair to say that there are quite a number more who are willing to swear that they have not seen it, although they have looked for it conscientiously. I belong to the latter class myself. I look for that ghost every night that I cross that bridge. Not that I particularly want to see it or that I have any special business with either British officers or their unquiet shades, but because it is very natural that, when a man is told that a ghost may be seen in a certain place, he will look for it there, and at the same time solemnly asseverate that he don't believe in ghosts in any form. "Now, as to the history of this particu lar ghost, if a ghost can be said to have a history, which I claim is open to doubt, I will give you the tradition the folklore of the vicinity furnishes. Before the iron horse knocked the business and the the locality known as the "Six Roads" was quite a place. Previous to the build ing of the turnpike road, in 1810, the cross roads at that place was the rally ing center for a large district of coun try. Some of the earliest Fourths of July the country owned were celebrated there with great pouip and ceremony, and the patriotic glories of 'trainin' day' always drew there a. crowd who feasted, fo"ght, drank and made merry with great heartiness. Even before the Rev olutionary war there was a blacksmith shop and Heveral houses, besides the tav ern, to give the place importance, and during 'the time that tried men's souls' some tragic events transpired near the old tavern. "The south branoh of the Railway river runs about four hundred yards south from where lip oid revolutionary tavern stood, and dividing itself on this low ground, required then, as now, two bridges. In the revolutionary days, and, for many years after, the bridge furthest from the tavern was a single arch stone structure, several feet higher than the road leading to it from tlit? south. "At the time the British army lay around New Brunswick and Perth Am boy, Washington found his force too weak to risk a battle, and he retired to the mountains in the rear of where Bound Brook and Plainfield now flourish. He could easily defend himself there, and the British had the rare good sense to know that to tackle George up among those hills woul4 be a most unhealthy and unprofitable investment of time, - talent and Hessians that cost too much to be wasted. "They were anxious, however, to draw him out, and to that end frequently sent out troops to make threatening demon strations in that direction. These Hove ments Gen. Washington could see from what is now known as 'Washington's rock,' back of Plainfield, which has of late years become very popular as a place of resort for special picnickers who de sire to get rained on. "Washington viewed these British demonstrations apparently with exasper ating calmness; but ho sometimes sent Gen. Morgan down to interview the in truders, whereupon the British suddenly discovered that they had pressing busi ness at Perth Amboy, and lost no time in getting there. "One day a small British command with two pieces of artillery was out on one of these raids, and came down from Woodbridge towards the Six Roads. On the way they stopped and lired a round shot over towards the oUl tavern. What they did it for, nobody knows, as tliero was no one in sight. The ball finding nothing else to assault, struck η rock out by the bam and knocked a chunk off it as big as a flour barrel, and the piece lies there yet. "An old continental soldier, who passed away many years ago, has left upon rec ord that he saw the ball strike the rock, and that the pieces flew and hummed like the nation. A few minutes after he saw a young British officer come down the road riding a very flue horse. Ile was a good rider and the horse was going at a smart trot as he passed the old tavern; buta few minutes later he 4-1·» Λ fill I ».«·, r... I ' r-.' I gaddle. A patriot sentinel stood on the hill by the school house, near where the Bramliall house is now, and when the officer got to the stone bridge and was about to cross it, that sentinel shot him dead. "The circumstances would probably never have excited especial interest in those piping times, full of the stirring incidents of vindictive warfare, had it not been that, after waiting for the dis gusted royalists to retire, the sentinel went to look for his game and could not find it. The body of the British of ficer had mysteriously disappeared, and though an active search was made it never was found. "Years after, when the old tavern was dispensing applejack amid scenes of pas toral peaoefulness, an old continental soldier Who resided in the neighborhood, and was familiar with the story of the shooting and tho miesing body, started home from the tavern one night, and the landlord was about shutting up when his customer came back ou the gardlees pi his veil toned ilitniiaaiiita.i ι He was white with terror. With chat tering teeth he related how he was tod dling along home, with his head down and thinking of nothing in particular, when he heard a big sigh close by, and, looking up, ho saw right ou the end of tho bridge a handsome looking British officer in his red uniform and on a big boy horse, riding about tli« toad slowly, looking intcntlv on the ground and sigh ing as though lie was looking for some thing he wanted very much but could not find. " *B' gosh!' said the old soldier, Ί knowed right away it was that dead British officer looking for his body, and I came away as quick as I could.' "Thus, you sec, the authenticity of the Six Roads' ghost is regularly established. " To Mothers. For upward» of fifty years "Mit*.
