Aug. 2-I.— The na tional board of arbitration of the Na tional league did not meet at the Fifth Avenue hotel today. President N. B. Young is ill, and sent bis son, Robert Young, secretary of the board, to act in his place. Of those interested only F. DeH. rtobifccn, of Che Cleveland club, was present at the hotel thia morning, and he and Mr. Young talked the situation over. Mr. Robison saiid he had been empowered at a meeiing yesterday j with A. Soden, of the Boston club, and j J. T. Brush, of the Cincinnati^, to act 1 for them today. It was decided to send a dispatch to the various members of the board of directors of the league, asking them to reconsider their de cision in the New York-Baltimore case in regard to the suspension of Holmes, of Baltimore. It was thought wiser to allow N. E. Young, president of the league, to cast a single vote for the board. Mr. Robison saiid today that the beard, in the opinion of nearly every one on base ball, had done wrong in suspending Holmie3. Holmea certainly had a right to be openly charged and officially tried. The board should re verse its action, and then, if it wished to bring action again?* Holmes, It could do so. He said that under the decision Holmtes could legally play to day, but tomorrow he canr.»t, so if the Baltvmoias' opponents lost tomorrow they can proteist. This might go on •the same way with every club in tha league and cause complications. Ho said that the board of arbitration will not meet because it Is positive the board of directors will reverse its ac tion. If t^ie New York club chooses to make a complaint then against Holmes it can do so. He said that part of the decision was not unconstitutional, but he thought- the fine of $1,000 on the New York club was too heavy. He said that Mr. Brush and Mr. Soden, as well as the rest of the base ball fra ternity, considered the suspension of Holmes without a hearing was uncon stitutional, and had no doubt the board of directors would reconsider. He was eroinar home today. Mr. Young would also leave. ISBKI,L AND KXOLIi. They Are Secured by Comiskey for tlie St. Paul Team. Manager Cornii'?key spent yesterday ln Chicago, and according to telegraph ic advices he made a pretty good day of It He secured Isbeli's release from Chi cago, alrhough what he paid for it does not appear. Isbell, however, left Chi cago last night for Columbus, where he will join the team today. It is not known here whether he will pitch or fill in the place in the field made va cant by Campau's release. There was some talk about Eddie Burke being taken back, but It is un derstood that this is not official. Comiskey yesterday also secured "Hub" Knoll, who has been a good hitting outfielder ln this leagrue for a number of years. St. T.onlx "Shy" $5,000. ST. LOUIS, Mo., Aug. 24.— The Browns came home last night from an Eastern trip more disastrous than the previous one. They did not clear expenses, and tomorow Manager Hurst will aid Receiver Mucken fuss in a hustle for money to pay the m«n, for their salaries are in arrears. The sala ries are due Sept. 1, and at present a long, searching look into the coffers of tho club fails to reveal anywhere near $5,0f!0, the amount that will be necessary to pay the boys. The trip East was barren of finan cial fruit, and, while It la not so stated of ficially, it is rumored that Hurst had to dig up the price back from his friends. AMATEUR BASE BALL, The Young Tigers defeated the Seals by the scor9 of 10 to 4. The features of th« game were the triple play by the losing side and the pitching of Peterson.

Riches and McNamara were in the points for the dia pers, while Dellar and Snow did the battery work for the Spaldlngs. BASE BALL. BRIEFS. Umpire McDonald's decision ln the Chi cago-Brooklyn game last Sunday, when he called Connor out for failing to retouch third 4 fl Se ,^ fore , r " nilin X on Everett's muffed lnneld fly, will not hold water, says the Chi cago Record. President Young, when queried yesterday for a decision upon the play In question, wired back that the run counted and the batter was out. It was a casa where three men were on bases and one out. Ever itt hit an infield fly, which Hallman trapped Connor, leading well off third, broke for the plate and reached It before the ball. Mo- Donald called Everltt out, and when Griffith protested that Connor was out for running on a fly ball decided against tho Chicago seo ond baseman, retiring the side. Burns had good grounds for a protest had Chicago lost. Charley Comiskey, of St Paul, dropped off ln Chicago yesterday while hl» team waa traveling to Columbus, and went over to sea President Johnson. Both men were discus sing the play, holding that McDonald wag wrong and that the run should h*r* counted. "You can never tell -what empires will do or how they -will rule on certain plays," said Comiskey. "Now, there U a rule which say* that only three outs can bo counted against a side. We were playing in a game not long ago when this situation arose i There were two out and two men on bases. Phy'le hit a ball clean to the fence — a home run. He was Jostled on third base, however, and caught, making the third out Then the captain of the team declared that one of the men on bases was out for cutting second and that the run did not count, and. 00 the umpire decided." • • » Comlskey has signed Hahn, the ex-Detroit er. He waa given a trial yesterday at Co lumbus, and Loftua' team found him for fourten hits. Comiskey "allows" that he will have to do better work than that to stay with his team. The St. P*ul manager was going home to St. Paul, but deoided that he had better go with his team to Indianapolis, so as to bring home a few victories. — Chicago Record. • • • President Johnson, of the Western league, has been slgji for over two months, and is hardly able to get around. He Intends to leave for Missouri and try the Lithia water cure. • • • Charlie Comlakey says he thinks Hart will make a mistake if he relies upon Green to fill regularly a position on the team. "You can't win the pennant in the National league with a team of young minor leaguers, no matter how good ball they may have put ud in slower company," said the St. Paul mag nate. "They must be thoroughly tried in the smaller leagues, and it takes time to work them out. Isbell, for example, has the mak ing of a first-class player, but he needs more preparatory work. Why, I only had him about six weeks. I took him off a farm toward the close of the season, and the Jump to the big league wa3 too great. In two years niore he will be as fast as any of them. The same principle, I think, will hold true in the case of Green. Denzer also made a big jump when he came to Chicago, but Roger la not a natural ball player, and will prob ably stay in his present conwaay." — Chicago Cbreaielo. • * • Speaking of pitchers, Comlskey claims that Phyle is the best in the Western league, and Taylor and Philippe he also considers as good men. All three have been mentioned as pos sible Chicago players— in fact, every good player in the Western league has been men tioned as being booked for Chicago. Comls key claims that President Hart has secured thirty-eight at least, but that he got the best man when he got ilertes. — Chicago Tribune. Parson Nicholson has been discovered. He Is playing second base for the Newark team In the Atlantic league.— Detroit Free Press. • * m Foreman and Phillips are the greatest pitchers In the Western league, as their work during the past two months Drovea.— Indianapolis News. • * * The Indianapolis players are not hitting the Mil, and it is only the excellent work of th« box men that keeps the team in the race in the last five games they have only made twenty-six hits, an average of about five to the game. In the same time they have made seventeen runs, winning three and losing two o£ the contests. No team can hope to win the Western league pennant with that sort of batting. Manager A.llen should ge his men together and work them as he did early in the season.

We're Here, Minne tonka Yacht club; second, Xenla White Rwir Yacht club; third. El Comatcho. P« Lake Yacht club. Yesterday waa a red letter day at White Bear, as the third day's events of the In)terlake Yacht association resulted in victory for the home club's representatives in two of the classes and a defeat in the seventeen-foot class, which would easily have been a victory, but for an untimely acci dent which occurred before the race was well started, coupled with a foul by Capt. Hopkins' sloop, We're Fere Capt Drake, of Xenia, the White Bear Yacht, filed a formal protest against the captain of the Minnetonka boat, immediately following the races The regatta committee disallowed the protest, however. As It was. Xenia was only defeated by one minute and thirty-two seconds She sailed the entire course with a cracked mast, in addition to having her spinnaker torn away in We're Here's foul. The conditions for fast and snappy racing at White Bear were ideal yes terday, and it is due to the steady gale which swept across the lake all day that the White Bear club is cred ited with the third straight victory i£ th€ ! twenty-foot class, giving Mahto, the club's entry, the championship of the Inland Lake association for the year, and the possessor of the hand some trophy offered by that organiza tion. The result of the Hoodlum-Akela race was not a surprise, as both vic tories of the Boston champion have been accomplished under circumstances which were decidedly unfavorable to Capt. Giigg's craft. Hoodlum, the unbeaten champion of Boston, suffered defeat yesterday ME the first time in two seasons, having sailed nearly sixty racea without being passed. Ti l e S?, 1 ? 1^ between the Hazard. Capt. Pillsbury's crack Minnetonka yacht, and Mahto was one of the best sailed yacht races ever brought off on vv nite Bear. The two boats easily ran away from the field, as they did on the preceding days, and at times there was but a few seconds' time between them Haz ard started out to win the race, and for the first two legs of the course it looked decidedly discouraging for the White Bear boat. However, rucining to windward, she made up the few seconds which separated her from the leader and kept a little in advance thereafter. She easily won in two minutes and thirty-three seconds. Today's racing will be limited to the contest between seventeen and twen ty-three-foot class. Hoodlum now has two victories to her credit, and, if the wind is light, today's races will prob ably determine the ownership of the trophies hung up by the association for his class. On the contrary, if it blows a good stiff breeze, Akela's chances are excellent for taking a sec ond race, as she was fitted with Aure lia's mainsail yesterday, which puts her on a more equal basis with the Boston champion. The seventeen-footers will also bat tle for supremacy today, and. at best, two more races will have to be sailed, as each of the two leaders has a race to its credit. The racing in the twenty-foot claw having been completed the Osfhkosh sailors left last night for their homes but the rest of the visiting yachtsmen will stay to attend the banquet which will be given in their honor at Ra maley's tonight. When the starting gun wag fired at 2:05 the wind was blowing ten knots an hour with quite a sea running. The twenty-footers were started at 2:15 p. m. and Hazard immediately started in to run away from the field. She partly succeeded and was well on her way before Mahto got her big spinnaker up for the free run to cen ter, Monoqutt, the Indiana boat wihich made such a poor showing the day be fore, responded with a great burst of speed and to center the six big fel lows tore at a seven-knot clip. The seventeen-footers were started at 2:20. They were all ckse to the line when the signal was given and as they all passed nose to nose Fred Bigelow notified the judges that Xenia had cracked her mast and they were re lying on her stays to temporarily avert its going by the beam. The boats got away dangerously clo?e together. Before reaching center "We're Here" caught her boom in Xenia's shroud, and in getting away caught the spinnaker stay, and broke it. On this point there is a dispute. Oapt. Hopkin's men say they did not come within ten feet of Xenia, while Capt. Drake says that he was to wind ward and therefore had the right of way and that We're Here came too close with the above result. The rules of the club say that the yacht to the leeward must give the windward boat way. Mahto's pallors exhibited excellent judgment throughout the race, and did fine work to windward. She caught Hazard at Wildwood buoy and from there on it was a very close race. lota was third, but was losing distance to Monoquet. From Wildwood to cen ter Hazard losit ground. In the face of a head wind the yachts tacked back and forth, and by a long tack Mahto pointed the center buoy and crossed twenty seconds ahead of Hazard. Ord way kept up a winning gait right along. From Center to Glark street Hazard lost twenty-eight seconds, leav ing her one minute and four seconds astern. The relative positions of the boats in this cla-ss wm not changed during the remainder of the race, except that Monoquet, who secured third plaoe by a neat tack at the finish line, defeat ing lota by ten seconds. The race throughout wa« close arid interesting, "CABCARETS do all claimed for them and are a truly wonderful medicine.

With the wind blowing twelve knots, Akela soundly defeated the Massa chusetts boat by six minutes and'fif teen seconds. The Hoodlum was given eight sec onds' time allowance, and was thor oughly outsailed at every point. It was a magnificent race. At times the sails of the boats nearly touched the water, but each time they were right ed by skillful management of their crews and brought up to the wind. At Dellwood buoy Hoodlum led the White Bear craft sixteen seconds, 'and at center on the first trip around she was nineteen seconds ahead. At the Wildwood buoy Hoodlum's lead waa not increased. Both boats had taken down their spinnakers, which had sup planted their Jibs on the free run to Wildwood and were beating back Hoodlum just a little in advance. Akela now showed some une racing qualities. To the windward on the two-knot run to Clark street she pass ed the open water between her rival, and at the Clark street buoy lead by three minutes and seven seconds. On ■the run to center on" the second trip around the course, Hoodlum made up about a minute of her lost time. At Dellwood, however, in beating up to the buoy, she lost. On her ruh to Wildwood, Griggs gained another twenty seconds, and Hoodlum shook out a reef which cost her ten seconds more on the run to center. It was on the beat from Wildwood to the finish that Akela made her gains early in the race, and she du plicated them before home was reach ed. She crossed the line six minutes ahead of Hoodlum. Her actual time was two hours, five minutes and forty seconds, the fastest time ever made over the course. The regatta committee, at Its meet- Ing last evening, considered the claim on the part of Hazard's owners that sine was fouled by lota in Tuesday's race. The foul was allowed, but It did not make any difference in the re sult of the race, which will therefore not have to be resailed. In the matter of the foul claimed by the owner of Xenia the foul waa not allowed, so "We're Here" wins tha contest of yesterday. It was decided to sail the East vs. the West this forenoon and the other race this afternoon, as has been the custom heretofore.

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 24.— The ar rest of Mrs. W. A. Botkin at S-tocUton on the charge of murdering Mrs. John P. Dunning: and Mrs. Joshua Deane, at Dover, Del., by means of poisoned can dy sent from this city, has excited much interest. In the ounty Jail after her arrest, she was not at all willing to make a statement of what would be her defense or how she felt about being charged with murder, saying merely: "I feel very well, thank you, and am quite ready to go. I have got ten past all the humiliation of the charge. I am ready to meet it." Mr. Botkin stoutly asserts the in nocence of his wife. Detective Gibson, who assisted In the arrest of Mrs. Bot kin, states that he has no warrant for the arrest of any other woman. He thinks that Mrs. Botkin will break down and has taken precaution^ to prevent her from committing suicide. She was much agitated when told that she woukl have to stand trial on a charge of murder, but soon recovered hereelf and said that the charge would have to be proved. A trunk belonging to Mrs. Botkin was seized in this city today by De fective .Seymour 5 . Cnle? of 'Police Eeei has not yet opened it and will not do so until forma-l extradition papers are received from Delaware. DOVER, Del., Au£ 24.-^Tohn P. Dun ning, whose wife and slster-ln-law were poisoned by candy sent from San Francisco, has made a statement to the As-sociated Press. He says: "I have talked with the attorney general and other state officials of Delaware, dis closing all facts within my knowledge which could possibly lead to the de tection of the persons whose act caused this tragedy. From the moment I learned of the fiendish murder of my wifa and sister in-law, upon my ar- T V f 1 J n ,,, New York from p<>r to Rico Iw ™ ay> m * one has been that the guilty should be brought to justice. I have withheld nothing from the officials which could lead to the detection of the criminal. But for two reasons I must refuse to make any statements for publication. First, be cause it might defeat the ends of jus tice, and, second, because innocent per sons might be involved. I will con tinue to maintain this course even at the risk of subjecting myself to unjust criticism." COL. PAGE BETTER. Marked Improvement in Ills Coudlx tion Noted Yenterday. Col. Page continues to improve and yester day he was resting very quietly. HI3 family and friends fe^l much encouraged and hope for his speedy recovery. The malirlal fever seems to be about broken, but it leaves the colonel in a very weak condition, which it is difficult to overcome. The residents of the post are all glad to have the Fifteenth rear by. The fort haj beer, very desolate sin>e the dei*arture of the Third, and the sight of soldiers wandering aloug the walks and among the tre^s lend.-? a more natural air to the scene.
