The proposal to incorporate New Orleans and Mobile was voted down. Regarding his future ex-manager Tim Hurst Baid the other day; "I am through with managing base ball clubs. It is too much work for the price. I don't know yet just what I will do. I may go back to umpiring. I can tell better after the big meeting." Did John T. Brush ever foist upon base ball a measure that did not cost both prestige and monoy? Never! If you doubt go over the record from 1888 to 1898. According to Barney Dreyfuss only $16,000 worth of Louisville stock is sub scribed for. Tlie other $34,000 lies in the Louisville Club safe awaiting subscrib ci-h. Billy Shindle is out with the announce ment that lie lias not been signed by Kansas City for next season, is not under reservation and will sign where be pleases.

That would be a capital deal for Mr. Freedman. It is said that $25,000 will purchase the cream of the Louisville club, pro viding that the League will give the same amount for the rest of tlie players and the franchise. Harvard base ball cranks are not happy. Tlie prospect of a good team to keep up the good work of the football eleven is not bright. Tlie fact is that Harvard only has four of the last year's team back in college who will play. Tlie Western Baseball League is be coming a husky, vigorous young giant. Outside of the National it is now the strongest league in tlie country. Good management during the '99 season will probably establish it on an even firmer basis than it is today. □ nr !,-> r,r- j-.v□ n. SUiLir DbrLA SL.

Savannah, Ga., Dec. 19.—At the col lation of the officers of the Third Georgia Regiment to Postmaster-General Smith and the newsDaper correspond ents, General Shatter had some interest ing thing to say about Cuba and the Cubans. He did not make a speech, but in a conversational way expressed him self, his remarks being nominally ad dressed to Colonel Berner, of the Geor gians, though they were intended for the whole assemblage. "It seems to me," said General Shafter, "that a great many persons have an er roneous idea respecting our relations with the Cubans. As I view it, we have taken Spain's war upon ourselves. We shall in all probability hear a good deal more of the 'insurgents.' " "How about self-government for the Cubans?" General Shafter was asked. "Self-government," the general re peated. "Why, they are no more fit for self-government than gunpowder is for hell." In the same line General Shafter went on to tell why the United States would, in his opinion, be obliged to remain in the island for gome time, and govern the territory by military force.
