George Prentiss is home again from the Bostons. Manager Seele wanted George to go to the Kansas City Club, but Geo. would not go. He is now waiting to hear from Seele and expects to sig with another club. It is to he hoped fi will stay here and pitch for the Wil mingtons. The Baltimore scored the first shutout of the season, and Washington got it. Doc Amole who at one time played on the Wilmington, was touched up for 12 hits by Baltimore yesterday. The Phillies scored 13 runs against Brooklyn yesterday. Is this a hoodoo tlie rest of the season? n Wheeler of the Phillies must injbe pretty good form. The Royal Blues defeated the Howard School, Jrs., on Saturday by a score of 34 to 31. The features of the game were Dougherty, catcher; Dance, pitcher and Ridgway, second base. The Royal Blues have opened dates and would like to hear from any teams in the city. Captain W. Ridgway, No. 310 East Eighth street. Bobby Matthews, the peer of them all in point of successful pitching service, died at an institution near Baltimore yesterday. Bobby started profession ally in 1870 with the Kekiougas of Fort Wayne, and in later years pitched for Baltimore, the Mutuals of New York, Boston, Athletics of Philadelphia, and other clubs. He retired from the game about 1890. Umpire Snydar said he was never be fore treated so unfairly by a crowd as' lie was on Saturday in New York. St. Louis hadn't recovered from the fire scare of Saturday. They had eleven errors in the Chicago game on Sunday. John Clements and some of the other players were burned about the face and hands in rescuing men and women from the burning stand at St. Louie. President Killitea, of the Milwaukee club, criticises the National Leaugue as follows: "It is utterly impossible for the minor leagues to get justice from the National Board of Arbitration, which is in the nature of a judge sitting on the bench trying a case affecting his own in terests. If a judicial body were selected as the Board of Discipline lias been, dis putes between the National League and the minors could be satisfactorily ad justed, but there never will be a National Board of Arbitration of a judical char acter, fair and impartial in its dealings, until all the minor leagues have a voice in the selection of its members and the men who compose it are not identified with National League club." The Boston players are making strong objections to signing the resolutions sent out by President Nick Young, in which the players agree to abide by the Brush rule. The Bostons claim they cannot play their game if the rule is strictly en forced. Don't cry the New Yorks are in the same boat. Sockalexis' old failing on ground balls is as noticeable as ever. When he wakes up in time to get after a fly lie handles it splendidly, and his throwing is quite as phenomenal as it ever was, hut lie turns many a single into a double or three bagger by letting it slip through him. "Practice will make a good fielder out of any player who is quick on his feet and wants to learn, says Tebeau. "Think of the troubles that Burkett used t -0 have when lie began playing the out field, and now look at him. There, is not a better fielder in the league, and Burkett himself used to believe that he was not fitted for outfield work. A man must be a natural hitter in most cases to be a first' class batter, but fielding is something lie may acquire if lie is only fast oil his feet. Captain Duffy, of the Bostons, con siders the lengthening of the season a mistake. The Brush resolution for the suppres sion of rowdyism on the field has been adopted by another minor league, the Texas. Guppy, of the Clevelands, may not be able to pitch before May. Tebeau thinks of leaving him at Hot Springs until his arm comes around all right. James J. Corbett says he will play baseball again this season. He claimsto have made $17,000 last year by playing first base in exhibition games. I ! is SELF DEFENCE.

He will follow the circuit all through the season, with the exception of a few outside match races that have been arranged for him. When climbing steep hills; a slow pace first is advisable. He who speeds too fast will soon regret his haste, which in variably makes waste. A very little practice will enable the novice to do wonders in hill climbing. Tandem bicycle racing will be a fea ture of this season's circuit meets.
