Ill' in Danville, Ind., a nine of female
baseball players played a match game
on Sunday. They defeated the local

licople saw them do it. After the gnmc
the women were arrested. That is right
mid pro kt. No female baseball club has
nny right to defeat a nine comiMiscd ot
men, even if it is on Sunday, nnd they
ought to be made to answer for their
action. Women arc getting altogether
too proud in this generation.

That is what is ussured for Aslicvillc
during the coming season.

At the back of the other are a number

Asheville is coming to the front with a
pace as gratifying to its admirers as it is
painful to its rivals. Over a half million
of dollars are to be spent here this sea
son for hotels.
Just think of it!
With lite hotel facilities Asheville al
ready hns. a half million more of dollars
are to be put into new ones.

At the regular meeting of the Aslievillc
Lyceum society Mr. Lock Crnig was the
principal sicakcr. The subject being
'the work for the democratic party in
the next cntnwilgn." Mr. Craig said
this was an age of gold the almighty
dollar held sway und men were more or
less governed by it. MiinoioliHU and
money kings hud conquered the land,
and unlike Willium the Norman, did not
propose to divide equally with the men
who had aided them in the fight. It was
wrong that a lew men should revel in
wealth in which the luborcr docs nut
properly share. The men to wear the
honors earned by labor are the laborers
Great wealth is the evil of this genera

trude be the cry and not tariff reform
men should trade according to their im
pulses. The great west was developed
without iirotcction, nnd should free trade
he established, America would drive all
comiietitors to the wall. Protection
gave to men the right to put into their
pockets the hard earning of the laborers
No laborer should be taxed.
Rev. Wm. Ward, did not think free
trade desirable. General Hamilton, a
guest, thought the democratic nrty
should stand by the Cleveland platform

tlnth should be smothered out. Ballot
reform was badly needed. The State
election law was Iniquitous. Mr. died-
ester said the law was not made for such
as himself and the Colonel.
Mr. T. A. Jones thought free trade and
a pure ballot good things, but favored
anything thnt would keep the Southern
States In the hands of the white people
no matter what, Mr, Gaines thought
the parly should outline a new policy,
and that the Southern Democrats should
shaic that policy.
Mr, J, It. Herring thought candidates
and apcakcrs should be chosen for their
fitness and not for teal.
The subject chosen for the meeting three
weeks from date wot "Asheville of the
next generation," and the speaker ap
pointed was W. T. r-enniman.
