There is considerable curiosity being manifested about the make up of Presi dent Young's staff of umpires for next season. There will be twelve and pos sibly fourteen men appointed to judge the plays. Of course Tom Lynch and Bob Emetic will be reappointed and possibly Hank O'Day, McDonald and Carpenter. As retired hall players in good standing are to have tigs preference our old friend Arlio Latham will is it it Will Terry and probably be on the staff. Bob Clark, both of whom played in Ed. Brooklyn, are also applicants. Swartwooil, the best umpire in the East ern League, lias been offered a place and Charley Snyder, of the Atlantic, and Haskell, of the Western League, are fav orably mentioned. George Wood, for merly of Philadelphia, has the support of the officials of the Cincinnati, Balti more, Boston, Washington, Brooklyn and Philadelphia clubs. One thing is sure—when Anson goes half of the romance of the game will go with him, and the Chicago Club will lose half its drawing power. The old man is a card such as the game cannot duplicate or hope to replace. He is unique and unapproachable. There is nothing on the whole circuit to equal Anson ; the old man who has played ball for twenty five years, and keeps on playing. People go to see him who wouldn't go to the Chicago games any more than they would to see St. Louis play. Arlie Latham was a great card in iris day ; Sockalexis was quite an attraction this season, but for money making and money drawing there never lias been and never will be anything on the road to rival A. C. Anson. In short, lie is the game—the grand central figure of base ball, and with his passage will pass the link that hinds the present to the past. We must have Anson. He must be in the game, even if only on the bench and lines. We must retain him.—Louisville Evening Post. » The Eastern League magnates met tit the Fifth Avenue Hotel Wednesday. The representatives of the leading leagues were not in session long enough l o transact any business. 5 o'clock and adjourned at 5.10. minor They met at Today they will .settle down to business. The Giants'former manager, Arthur Irwin, will be called upon to explain how it i was that he had a number of Washington J players on his Toronto team after the league had passed a resolution forbiddingj j the use of Fastern League clubs as Na tional League farms.

C. to in a of Over in England bicyclers are not given as much consideration as Ameri can riders receive from the Government. "To prohibit the use of all the streets by bicycle riders at certain hours" is one of the latest propositions of the powers of London. This, of course, seems idiotic to American riders and shows tin- nar rowmindedness of London's governors. The cicycle is a vehicle of transportation just as much as a carriage or horse and has as much right to the thoroughfares as either. It is needless to say that t! e cyclists fought the measure. English manufacturers are still unable to reduce the weight of their wheels. The English w heel is stanch and sound and for that reason is reliable. The En glish racing wheels are seldom under twenty-four pounds. Oil bearing lightly once in two weeks. Use oil on chain, applied to hearings when sound tells of grit. Take them apart, wipe balls, cones and cups clean, then pack hearings with vaseline. in A St. Louis firm has been incorporated for the purpose of manufacturing gear case aluminum bicycles. The gear ease, which bids fair to become popular next season, will he. part of the frame, principal feature of the wheel will he the gear-cased frame in one continous east ing free from all joints. The invention is calculated to add strength to the wheel and stiffness to the frame. The demand for gear cases as a preventive of dust has occasioned the patent, but it is a question il it will prove a finan cial success. The gear case singly lias apparently come up to all requirements a protector of chains, and for that reason bicyclists may not like to experi ment with the aluminum affair. If it is built strongly the aluminum wheel may become popular, as it would be much lighter than the ordinary make. Peter Berio, the well-known professional used aluminum wheel in several of his races and it proved quite serviceable. Jimmy Michael's marriage is now a grand conundrum, as well as the prob able age of Tom Eck at one time. Michael is reported married and denies it himself at times, while at other times lie refuses to discuss the question. Friends say that lie is married, and the Pittsburg papers lately published lengthy interviews with Mrs. Michael, who is reported to be at Homestead, Pa. Several novelties towards the improve ment of the wheel and all its accessories will be shown at the English bicycle shows. They include novelties in brakes, celluloid gear cases, gear wheels, tool bags and mud guards. Dealers are unanimous in the opinion that of all the purchasers of wheels, the hardest class to suit is a woman. A The is ; to as at in an tit uset^in making a sale. large amount of lact and intuition must he It must be satis at factorily shown to all women buyers that the machine will not detract from their personal appearance.

"Mike" Leonard, of New York, knock ed out "Jack" Hanley, of Buffalo, in the fifteenth round of their bout, at Bochos ter, Wednesday night. The fighting was fierce from the start. The men were matched at 135 pounds. Leonard was probably ten pounds over-weight and forfeited $50 to Hanley. Frank Mouldcn and "Billy" Cordon fought a twelve round draw as a preliminary.

An effort is to be made in the near future to reorganize the Cornell lacrosse team, which lias been under cover since 1895. That year Cornell had one of the best teams in the country, defeating Harvard and other teams. Fortunately the university lias two or three experts at the game who will act as coaches to the team. II. Powell and Swindels of the '90 team are taking an active interest in the work. There is also a Johns Hop kins man at Cornell, while Brown. Midgely and McElroy have all played before on summer teams. It is expected that games will be arranged with Har vard, Syracuse, Lehigh, Toronto and the Crescent clubs. A call for candidates will soon be issued. Caspar Leon has won $4,200 in the last two years, which is considerably more than Jimmie Barry won in the same time. Leon is a natural bantam and never lias to train down to get to weight. In making matches lie invari ably has to concede weight. It is likely that next year lie will meet Barry in another contest, and his chances will be better titan they were in his previous lights witli the Chicagoan.

CHANGE APPRKCIAT m' ALL Public* Talent and -Bookmaker# Loud in Their Praises As to the Comfortable Suitoii ml ins*. Singerly opened its gate* yesterday for. a seven day meeting and one of the largest crowds attended the races that lias been seen at any of the Maryland tracks. This is no doubt due to the very comfortable accommodations to be en joyed at this very picturesque track. The racing yesterday was of the very highest order, its some of the races were in doubt until the last jump. The bookmakers didn't have things quite their own way, as the talent won four out of the five races. This is quite an agreeable change for the speculators and they will no doubt appreciate it as they have been contributing toward the bookies' bank rolls for the whole of the last meeting. Jockey A.
