The base ball magnali s have "turned down" their ' d mauds for a mole liberal form of I contract. The Flayers' association has j in.' boon ii 1 1 i i iii d oriieiaily that they cannot get what, is demanded' of i lie I leag'ue. as Hie latter has not yet eon j siih r. il the matter. The committee. however, that met the players has made its rt port to the league, and con ciuiles that loo much is asked for. A.. H. Soden admit tod this much to Clarke tiriliiih. ami he suggosied that the players ask for another hearing. This request has been made and the phiyrrs are ready lo modify their demands soon wha I. It seems, however, that the mag nates are opposed to any concession lo the players. The elu'j owners would not discuss the subject. The players say thai titey want to moot the club owners half way. They have, how ever, no intention of backing down and are deiermined to get what they be lieve is just. When t lit"- players are noiilied officially Unit they (-tin expect nothing fr.un the league a general call will be made for a meeting and plans veil! be mad.' to bring the club owners t ) terms. lr developed at the meeting yester day that Andrew l-.reednian is now considered one of the recognized au thorities, ami that lie is held in high regard by his fellow magnates.

Tiio'New York magnale ivus at. the me. ti'.sg again yesterday and took a liv: ly interest ill the proceedings. The American league trouble was again the foremost topic of discussion. It is said that another plan has been formulated besides Ihe re-eslablish-ment of a twelve club league to cir cumvent Bun Johnson's scheme. The league has done away with southern practice trips, and Hie play- rs will not have to report for prac tice or preliminary training prior to April l.T.iol. All the club owners signed an agreement to this effect. This is really a concession to the play ers. The latter are not In favor of these- southern practice trips,, as it makes ir necessary for them to report to their managers early in March, and as the payroll dues' not begin until the opening of the season "they are work ing praeticidly for, an entire month for ihi ir board and lodging. - The fact became known yesterday that the path has been opened for dealing for players between the New York and Brooklyn dims. The New York management announced "last year Hint It wanted- -nothing- in the shape of players that rtie Brooklyn club had. Now it is different. -Managers Davis and llaulon have been in consultation several times during the past few weeks, and Alex Smith may been me a Cianf. The Pittshurg-olub wants Doyle, and Ihe Chicago club is after Dojio and (ileason. Chicago is willing to give up Strang, a promising player.

Keep your eye on Springfield, all you Now Haveners, for Dicky Pierce ami liis comrades are after you rod hot. That cinch on the pennant is some what warped and last night's game al most collapsed the balloon. Waterbury should put forth extra efforts -to win to-night's contest from Il.irll'ord tind got oven for 'that rob bery in Hartford on Tuesday night. According 1o disinterested spectators it was n dead steal on ihe part of Billy Lush and Tom Colter and .they should' be reiniiyled of that fact to-night. Hartford will not p!nv to-night, but the Indians will need the rest to pre pare for the battle in Waterbury to morrow night, which is bound to be one of the best of the season. It is unfortunate a special train could not be secured to accommodate the Hart ford fans who would like to witness the game. Hartford Post. There is not a fair-minded person in Hartford, nor a fair-minded writer ei1hr,r, who witnessed that game be tween Waterbury and Hartford but will admit that the visitors were not given a stiuare deal. Manager Flan agan of the Lawrence team., who wit nessed the game, claims that Lush did not even notify the Wnierbury play ers when the two minutes wore up. Beat Hartford square and fair, and open and above board, if you can. but do not resort to unsportsmanlike tac tics to do it. If one of her players breaks a skate, take no advantage of that mishap, but give him time to get ready,' if they don't happen to have an extra man on band. "Hi; unto others as yon would have them do unto you" is a pretty good motto to hang up in all the rinks. The Merrimae Athletic club has or ganized an ice, polo team and would like to arrange games with any other ice polo team In the city. Next Sun day they will have as opponents the second Morr'nnae teams, oonditirmally, of course, if the ice is strong enough. The line-up of the team Is as follows: J. Doran, first rush; M. Byrnes, sec ond rush: J. Byrnes and Wv McDonald, center; J. I'liss'uly, halfback; and J. Downey, goal. ' ' ' ' ' yi Polo mus.t'be on, the down grade in Maine judging by tliei meager reports given to the game by therpapers of Ihe Pine Tree eircnit.- One of the largest and best known Portland pa pers has evidently "soured" "on ' the game, judging.'by the absence of the scores in recent issues.

Americans Hold the Lead, lowed by the French Team. Steadily along -the six men who re main in the big race in Madison Square Garden are plodding. They are rolling the hips into miles', but .although the paeeTias been, swift, they are falling behind the record of last year. The fourth day of the grind found the rid ers glad enough to stick on their wheels, while they were on the track, without exerting themselves to make up lost laps, or gain a lend over those who were following. Therefore, the great crowds that packed the 1'iarden to the topmost gallery had to depend on the sprint races and the exhibition sprints with their accompanying mar velous time records for excitement, and console themselves with the thought Hint perhaps if they waited long enough there would be catastro phe like that of the previous evening, when contestants wore tossed about like chips in a cyclone. Spectators hate to miss any of the mixups for the rear-end collisions on Hie Harden oval mean ambulances and hospitals. Aronson. who was removed from the Harden after the accident of Wod nesday nifhr. now lies ih Now York hospital in ;i serious condition. His spine is injured sprained. Hie sur geons say. but whether sprained, dislo cated or fractured, Aronson is suffer ing intense pain and probably will not bo able to take part in any more six day contests. Turvilie. who also was badly injured' in Hie same accident, al though he tried to go en the l rack again some hours later, had to give up the at tempt. He. too, was taken to tin" Now York hospital suffering from a, bad knee. I'd Spoonor. who has official juris diction over the scoring, has kept his place in Ihe booth, except, for live hours, since the race began. He says he will not sleep .again until the race is ended, and he then wijl have estab lished a new record for loss of sleep. There has not boon a hitch in Hie scor ing since Mr Spoonor opened proceed ings, and not a lap has been misplaced or lost to any of the contestants even for a moment. This in itself is a won derful record whore the liold is large and the distance so great. Al 4 p. in. the riders wore twenty nine and four-lentils miles behind last year's record for the same lime. Mc- Farland is suffering from a si rain of the muscles of his heel, and his knee is also troubling him. so Hurt he had a physician in attendance all yester day, lie said, however, that he had no idea of quit ling, and his physician said thai ho would be 'able to finish the race. .Following Bahcoek's exam ple, (iiintn wont (in the track about 4 o'clock. Both men will ride twelve hours a day for their respective teams, this being allowed bv the management in view of the accident, that deprived ih't'si" men of their partners. There wore 10.C!tl) people in the Har den when one of the .holiest spurts of the evening took place. MeEachorn, Mlio had been talking with Harry Klkos. suddenly jtnnjM'd out as if shot from a catapult. He gained about tliirty yards, when Kikes caught him. Pierce relieved MoF.aohorn to carry our the plan to gain a lap, but lie tired perceptibly. Kikes was so fresh Hint lie carried the bunch around at a ter rific pace. The crowd cheered as a lap was gained on Waller, who found the pace so hot that he had to give up. Notwithstanding the fact that Uou gollz at this time relieved Simar. Klkos was fresh and determined . to keep up the spurt. He was followed by the Frenchman. Fierce. Ityser and Fredericks. Another, lap was gained on Waller, who was angry, and Stin son took up his riding. McFarlauf? then relieved Kikes and McKaohern re lieved Pierce. Such was the pace that Ihe reliefs were going on every two minutes now. As usual, the band increased the speed of the riders when it uegan. F.ikoi asked for a motor machine for pace, but he was informed if was against, the rules. He smiled as he hoard the answer. MeFarland tried to steal a lap under the influence of the band, but Simar hold him and he gave if up. Waller got. in front of K;u or after the latter rider had done some sprinting, and of a sudden Kaser went down. He was not hurt, however. Ityser relieved him. and Waller got in front of hint ami Ityser fell. One of his ankles was scraped. As the team has but two wheels the referee gave them their dis tance without loss, but Waller was cautioned about unfair riding. St bi son broke one of his pedals and lost another lap for his team and Waller became angry over the accident. A five-mih" pursuit nice took place between Carl Midler and Hugh Mc Lean, two of Ihe six-day riders who wore forced to omit early in the. week. McLean won in 7:0:V2-. seconds. Mid ler was caught after a chase of two miles and nine laps. Major Taylor rode an unpaced exhi billon half mile in .ri.i 2-" seconds. " A mile race in beats between P. H.

The con servative element in llu American Fed eration of Labor was dominant through out yesterday's in-ocoeuinpi of the con vention. Two resolutions championed by the' radical element were voted down by oveiwhelinin.LC majoring. One was, :. hirter i-oiiounceineut nru'mst trusts and monopolies in jreneral and the other a declin ation m favor of i lie co-operative commonwealth .tnd .troveinment owner ship and control of all means of produc tion and distribution. For both of them much more" moderate substitutes were adopted after a lonp debate. Throuidiout the debate the opponents of the resolutions claimed socialism as the only solution of the industrial prob blems. Trades unionism, they said, would last as'long as the competitive sys tem prevails, but the competitive system should be done away witli and the co-operative commonwealth should take its place. . President (Joiupcrs and his colleagues, who opposed the resolutions, took tan ground that the federation should not be couimhted to any political party and that government ownership is at this lime an impracticable lileory. with no definite plan for development into u work in,; system. The substitute of "the committee was adopted by an .overwhelniins majority, the veto being 4,1G!) aiiinnative to tSo negative. Major IUmieyn. a -retireil . army ollieer, also spoke for the retention of the can teen. - PEACE CONDITIONS. Empress Donaeer Reported to Have Kxprenseil Herself. LONDON, Dee. 14. "Information has reached the Wu-chaits viceroy."' says the Shanghai correspondent of Th Standard, "that the empress' dowager has agreed to accept the following peace conditions: " 'The early return of Emperor Kwang Su to Peking; indemnity to the amount of 40.00tl.(M10; the right of each legation to maintain a guard of troops and the appointment of a foreign adviser to each province of the empire. "Director Oenefal Sheng has received a telegram from Sian-fu asserting that ihe empress dowager is about to start for t'hen-ti-fu, in the province of Sr.e-ehuan. Li Hung Chang and Prince Ching have received the empress de.wager's permis sion to take the imperial seal from the forbidden palace and to use it in the ne gotiations." The Morning Post publishes a dispatch from Peking dated Dec. 12 which seems to show that there is still a considerable divergence of views among the represent atives of the powers.
