Not only the college man hut the towns people are Interested In Yale baseball. So much has boon Paid about the hopes for tho season, the change in the coaching system, ami partloiilai ly of the personal popularity of Captain Jones tlmt everyone appears to have a quickened Interest In the games. This afternoon at 4 o'clock Yale -.will play the nine of Trinity college, Ot the Held. The Trinity boys, who come from Hartford, have most of the men of last year's nine buck with them, and will bring down a new pitcher, Woodlo, by name, who Is nald to have something of a reputation, lie will probably perform In the box ngalnst Yale this afternoon, but he will have to be a good one to keep the Ells from getting an occasional Mnger for the slogan of all the Yale coaches this year Is "hit the ball" and the men have been hitting It. There was not a great deal of betting In the game with Manhattan, but It Is pretty early to expect a college bats man to get his eye on the ball. Later on when the weuthor gets warmer and everyone has had more practice there will be less excuse for weak hlt'.lng. Hut the game this afternoon ought to hn a good try out. Van VIeck will undoubtedly start In the box for Yale unless It Is a cold day when the sec ond Ftrlnir . "in " (II no In, po::' i'''.y Howard Jones. Coy will bo at Irst.

Mr. llnckett spoke to the boys about having consistent practice, and the Im portance of accomplishing this. Besides i this he gave many valuable points to the candidates out for the various P sltlons, iind explained the fundamental principles of the game. He gave tli.l bovs much etieonratemont and told I them to work bard. Ho gave an outllre of what tho pre. vlou-i High school nine had done to win the championship, and advised the hoys to try the Hanie system, which consisted greatly In using hoadwoik besides phy. slcal excitlmi. It y so doing the require ments of the different positions would become second nature to the players, Mid would help them Immensely. They would then know when and how to break up plays.

An entire period was necessary last night, before Hobble Hart, tho popu lar captain of the Hartford roller polo team, realized that the New Haven live had tho face cards and were de termined victors. The Wanderers drifted Into the Qiilnnlpluo rink .nnfl dent of spoiling New Haven's chances for second place, but they left tho rink confident that Hone's aggrega tion would win, the secondary title. The game If It might he called one, was one of the poorest exhibitions staged here this season, thoTosult 9 to 2, somewhat verifying the state ment. The slowly diminishing crowd of admirers of the New Haven team reached Its limit last night, and nut a low one at that. Hart and SchllTer started to work hard Just as smut as Mike Dohorty. the sometimes termed "Popular" ref eree, blew his whistle. Their energy was spent In vain, however, as .'Sard ner and Hone's goals In the tlrst per iod gave the prospect for a Hartford victory, n decided blow, (iardncr caged the llrst goal of the game In six minutes and forty-live seconds. Hone dropped a pretty one Into the canltal city cage Just twenty seconds iftor wanls. Feeling that there was not the slightest chance for victory tho visi tors began to loaf and tfio game from the close of the first period was the poorest Imaginable. Schlffor and Saunders furnished the only excite ment of the evening. Hoth players hnve had It In for ench other slncn tho opening of the season nnd they fought a great battle, the last of the season, last night. It would have been hard to pick tho winner as both players slugged, tripped, slashed tho ball at each other with equal strenuousness. Iteferoe lioherty teem ed to enjoy their playful tactics i'or he didn't call a foul on either player. As usual he wasn't very liberal with his awarding of fouls, about tlfteen were made and but one called. Ihtrlng the second and third periods the players took turns In going to their corners for a short snooze. The specti tor glancing about tho rink looking for a certain player would be unable to see him for a few minutes, when lo! he would arise from his slumber and play his part In tho farce. Worrier replaced Hone during the last few minutes of play. Ceorgo was hurt from a fall while sprinting down the rink In the second period and was unable to put up his usual whirlwind exhibition. Friday night will bo newsboys' night at the liulnnlplic rink. Manager Hone has assented to allow every newslo In the city who desires to see Watorhury play the Honeynrds, into tho game free.

In tiie eighth round Williams twice went to the door.- in the hist round Shea tried hard for a knockout, hut whs not strong enough to land. Wil liams fought at limes wildly, and his rushes were Ineffective. When tlnio was called In the, last round Williams was Just hanging on. No decision was given, hut had there been one, It Is thought Siieii would have gotten It.

When Dan O'Nell heard yesterday thai, Jimmy Burns had threatened to iiimp to tho outlaws he got hot 1111 the eol'nr and declared that If Burns dues not report for duty ho will pul him us far outshlo tho liars of organized baseball as the law allows. O'Nell said he wouldn't feel so sore against Burns If the latter hadn't told him In tho winter that li was Htitln find, nt the same time accepting nil vhuco money, Hartford Times. Though Hans Wagner is consliloroil one ol' too urentest batsmen tho kiiiiio has ever known, Mordecal Brown, tho Cubs' star pitcher, who agrees that tho big l.iuehman was tho most danger ous man ho ever faced, nevertheless says that Hans has a weakness, Bui, according to Brown, this does not de velop until you have two sl'rlkes on htm, when he says tho pitcher on it keep the bull either in or outside, . Just i trlllo high or low, so that It can't hn hit, because ho would never take any chances of having tho umpire call' out on strikes. Tho tin that Hrown gives Is all well, and good, but the fact or Ihe mailer Is that, most pitchers have found II dinicnil to Ifet him Into the position where his weakness would heeome ap pnrenl. (letllng two strikes on W.ognev has never been an easy mutter, and .iH Brown, llko thu rest, has probably .loutid It so ALL OPT FOR TROUT To-day the Long-Awaited Sea.' son Opens and Fishermen Are Ready. WILL BE A GOOD SEASON Oneii Wlnler and Full Ilrooks Make SnoriHinen Ilcllevc Tlicrc'a a Trout Abend. With tho first gray light of dawn to day qulto a number of Now Haven fishermen will bo out along the brooks trying for trout. It Is tho general be- ' lief thiU the first day of tho open sea son will" bo a pretty good one for the month of March has been such an ex ceptionally pleasant one that tho snow melted and while the brooks arc. fiill, the water Is not thought to be as cold us It has been In many of tho past seasons oil the opening day. For this reason It Is believed If any trout are found they will bo ft little livelier than they usually appear on April 1, . and , will give tho angler a llttlo more Inter- . estlng time. It Is also believed that there will be more trout than mual this spring. The brooks have been full and the winter has been an open one. This glvfu the fish a better chance to develop than low brooks and cold winters give. Yet It Is not expected that there will he any great abundance of the fish ,be-. cause such a thing Is not to be hope! for In Connecticut i;i this day and thne. Some men sometimes have good luck but the majority of them do not and It has long ago been demonstrated ' that tho brooks nre fished out except for the experienced few who knowV every hole and exactly how to fish these holes. The ago of bent pin and worm atid lucky hoy has passed for the simple reason that such a small num ber of trout exist there Is no longer need for the trout to take a chance. He . can get plenty of food without rlsklnf a gill on a clumsily covered Instru ment of torture. There nre a few things for the fish ermen to remcmoor. Tney can nsn In any part of tho sta'to on lAprll 1st, except Litchfield county. There the law Is not oft until April 15, and a' Litchfield county Is not very far no'th and as many of its streams feed, tho Nnugatuck and the Housatonle, local fishermen should not wander too far afield until after April 15th. '' They should also remember that' tlwy ' may bring home Just as' big a trout' 'or story as they can catch or their 'con science will permit, but they must not catch and ko-p trout less than six Inches In length. Of course It Is a well known fact that small trout, aa well as large trout, always shrink consid erably after being put Into tho creel, but the law never allows for shrink age. Actual measurement at the tlino of Investigation Is what counts In the courts ,and so It will be well to bo careful nnd particularly, careful this year on this point of size, because the game wardens are to he especially on the lookout for offenders who take small trout. ' . ''' Another thing to he remembered Is that no one man Is permitted to take more than thirty trout, all kinds counted. ' .
