The Con- leetieu- basA ball leaarue met at the llotel Garde yesterday afternoon and footed to give the New Haven franchise o Cornelius J Danaher of Meriden. Shortly after the meeting Mr Danaher urew ms cnecK tor tou, -wnicn was he price he agreed to pay for the club, ind the future of the New Haven team s in his hands. ; This was thfi princi pal business transacted at the meet- The corridors of the hotel were filled with base ball men from noon until ifter the meeting and among the play- rs oh hand were Terry Rogers of Nor wich, Harry Noyes of New London, Phil Corcoran of Bridgeport and M. J. poherty of New Haven, the present manager of. the Albany club. W. J. pracy, the owner of the Hartford club, and Manager Kennedy -were congratul ated upon the excellent men they had Secured and all the managers agreed hat Hartford at last had some play- ks that would give a good acocunt of hemselves. : ,f While a number of trades and deals vere - talked of, there wag only - one hat amounted to anything and that was the securing of Alphonse Thomas, he. pitcher, by the Hartford club. 1 he Minefield club is entitled to his ser rites, but Manager O'Neil agreed to lease him. Mr Tracy and Manager Kennedy have been trying to get rhomas for some time, as he did not Ivant to play in Springfield. "Secretary rRaurke told Mr Tracy that ne haa Bone all he could to have Secretary Farrell award Ira Thomas to Hartford. IsewarK claims mm ana me maner is now before the secretary of the Natlou- 1 Association of Minor League Clubs, ra Thomas is anxious to go to Hart- ord and, the Hartford managers real- ze that the two brothers will make the est battery in the league. Mrjlracy Announced that , he had secured Parry i rhackera,- the Eastern league , catcher,- o that he would be on the safe side Iven if Thomas was awarded to New-, There was a good deal of amusement t the meeting over the schedule pre pared by Manager Humphries of New London. v. The New London manager's ;nain idea was to save railroad fares, knd in doing this he failed to make a chednlo. that Trieaserl anvone excent himself. He. had Hartford playing in leriden most of the holidays, Holyoke aad few Wednesday .games at home, nd Wednesday is a half holiday tip here. f Springfield and Holyoke were cheduled to play in their own cities a lumber of Saturday, -which is what ney did not want,, as wnen one team. Mays the town draws from the othei, j nd Hartford' had ' but few Friday rames at home. The proposed- sched ule caused so much dissatisfaction that he meeting voted to offer a prize of !50 for the best schedule submitted at he next meeting, March 28. Secretary O'Rourke brought up a batter that received a merry ha ha. Ie moved that the holiday receipts he pooled by all the clubs. This motion wrought Ian O'Neil of Springfield to his feet In a nmry with a protest. ppringfield and Holyoke depend upon he - holiday games, to carry them hrough the season and the thought, of lividine1 tit so much good money was histastefuf to all the managers who xpect plums on holidays. If would je a good thing for tne towns that Jlraw poorly, but Mr O'Rourke did not eceive any support for his motion. One motion was carried that .met vith approval on all sides. That was hat the gate receipts on all days be livlded upon a 50 per cent basis. For merly , the receipts have been divided o that the home team got 60 and the risitors 40 per cent except on holidays. rhe home team will continue to take he grand stand receipts, except on holidays. It is believed that the new aivision will be fair for all. V President Sturges Whitlock was not present and he meeting Was presided liver 1 by Vice-President Cornelius J. f)anaher. The directors present were: leriden. Bristol; New Haven," Aufort; Hartford, Tracy; Springfield, O'Neil Holyoke, Prindeville; New London, Humphries; Norwich, Morrison; Bridgeport, O'Rourke. Manager Ken-? hedy of Hartford also . attended the meeting. ; .:, - v" ' Bristol of Meriden and O'Rourke of pridgeport the committee appointed o consider the New Haven question, reported that grounds-could be se cured in that city. It was then voted hat the New Haven franchise revert o the league. The franchise was then roted to Mr Danaher, who had al ready bought it of James E. Canavan. Mr Danaher will begin at once to ocate a site and get the ball park in nape. The field that has met with he most favor will require an expn- 3iture of over $6,000 and Mr Danaher 8 prepared to put that amount into he game. It was snid that Hon leorge M. Gunn of Milford, the -well mown democrat, was ready to become financially interested n the club. Mr panaher said he was ready to sell the franchise to the Tight party, providing pnough money is offered. Some New paven people exppcted to get the fran chise without giving anything for it. they looked upon Mr Danaher as a i'Colonel Butter-in" ana at first some pf the league directors took this view hf it, but after the meeting they ex pressed themselves as of the opinion Ibat ' Mr Danaher had acted for the best interests of the league. j ' M. J. Doherty. who played on one of 1 he Hartford Eastern league teams kvas prepared to manage the club and i. i m i i ! si. t a -vr.- ace an luterem iu.it xi.vvi-i.uiu icw Taven men secured it, but as they have not he will return to his Albany lub. Nothing was done at the nieet ng1 about umpires. Bobby Durnbaugh md Jim Kpnefick may be considered 'oi such positions. The circuit will re- nain the same as Jast year. Norwich kill continue to, be represented and some trouble that the club has had vith its ball park will probably be set- led. Composition of the Teams.

BASEBALL NOTES. A Milwaukee doctor is suing Bob Unglaub for $200 worth of profession al services, which Unglaub says con sisted wholly in robbing his shoulder one day when he fell running to sec ond base. For this he refused to pay $3, hence the suit for $200. Comiskey 4s quoted &s saying that the "strengthened" White Sox are du'e to win the pennant again this vear. The strengthening" material Comiskey so much counts on are Pitchers Walsh and Dougherty ' and Catcher Claude Berry untried young sters. j' Dan McGann. like McGtfaw, nas great faith in the New York Nationals chances for tbe league pennant this year. "Pi'tsburg cannot win again,'' he says, , "because she will not have the pitchers.'' ; ' : Bresnahan will be played regularly on the Giants because of bis batting. If young McCormick of last year's Jersey City team does not make good, Bresnahan will be in the outfield per manently, as Van naltren will not come east again. : V Kid Nichols the wonderful pitcher, land who is to manage the Cardinals this year, gays he has been a twirler for seventeen years, and declares be is Just las good now aa at any time of his career in the box.' He atrributesi his long, useful service to the fact that he never used an underhand ball 1n his work, which is very harmful to one's 13arowing powers NEWS. THE PUGILISTS. DATE HAS BEEN CHANGED. McCoy and Placifc Will Meet April 5th--Martin Carroll Won Easily Interesting News. At the request of the officials of the Insterstate A, C. of Philadelphia the date of the match between Kid Mc Coy, and Henri J. Placke, the " giant Hollander boxer, has been changed from April 1 to April 5. The change suits the two fighters, as it will give them a chance to do some extra train ing. The foreigner needs this, as he is hog fat and will have to work hard to get In trim. 1 He is exercising in a local gymnasium. His manager, Clark Ball... has promised to allow the news paper men to see him put up his hands as- soon as Placke gets rid of his sea legs. Ball thinks this will be about the latter part of this week. McCoy in the meantime is at Albany where he is undergoing a vigorous course of pre paration. Those who visited the Kid say that he is In good trim. YANGER AND IIERRERA DRAW. Chicago, March 15. Benny Yanger and Aurelia Herrera fought six Tounds to a d;raw last night before the Ameri can jA. Cv It was a rattling good fight from start to finish, and the decision of the referee was heartily cheered by the large crowd present. nUGHEY M'GOVERN WON. Reading, Pa, March 15. Hughey McGovern, the Brooklyn bantam weight, put up a great six-round bout with "Toda" Moran of . Brooklyn last night. V It was McGovem's fight from beginning to end, and all that 6aved Moran was his continual hugging. Mc Govern's fast infighting was too much for him and the bell saved Moran in the fourth and fifth rounds. In the last round Moran went to the floor half a dozen tinier, three of which he took the full count. He was very tired and badly beaten as he left the ring. MUNROE -EAT RUHLIN. Patrons of ice sport in Brooklyn had an extra night last evening at the Cler mont avenue ice rink. There were many novel features and the big crowd was thoroughly satisfied. A hockey game between the picked players of New York and of Brooklyn was the first attraction In the second period the match degenerated into a. farce. Jack' Munroe was the referee, and the players tried their best to upset him. Gus Ruhlin of Akron, O., and Jack Munroe of Butte, Mont, came on late for their half-mile pursuit race. It was a laughable exhibition. The hea vyweight fighters. took to the Ice as though they were afraid it would fly up and hit them. Munroe was the better of a brace of poor skaters. Ruh lin took the count in the fourth lap, then Munroe sat down good and hard, and finally got to his feet and won by over half a lap in 2 minutes 49 seconds. CANOLE WINS FIGHT. New Bedford, March 15. Before the Warren Athletic club last Jiight 1,000 people saw Fred Brysoii of Boston, knocked out by Martin Canole In the first round. Bryson went at his man in a fierce manner, but after the -TSt clinch and in the break-away Canole hooked his left Into Bryson's face, who went down and was counted out. 1 DISASTROUS TO FAVORITES.

The opening of the new Louisiana Jockey club's spring meeting was disastrous i to the favorites, Frontenac being the only favorite to finish in front. The defeat of Tiperine in the Crescent stake, for which she' was favorite at 9 to 20, was the heaviest upset of the day. Dixie Lad, second choice, was at 7 to '1 and the others at a long price. The sldw track, seriously affected by Tain, did not suit the Morris filly, and her usual speed was lacking. Delaval at 13 to 1 in the betting led from end to end, winning easily by three lengths. The race was worth $900 to the -winner. Summaries: ' First Race Frontenac won; Mrs. Frank Foster second, Boundling third. Second Race Sneer won; Magdala second, Hobson's Choice third. Third Race Foxy Kane won; Scor pio second, Harmakis third. Fourth Race Delaval won, Dixie Lad second, Viperine third.

Solanus, the favorite, was a close third. Dr. Peggo proved a sur prise by taking the two-year-old race, beating Bill . Short a neck. Bob Ra gon, the favorite, stopped badly. Ga lanthns was much the best in the fifth and won handily from Farnum. .. Favorites Had Hard Lack. LOS ANGELES, Cal., March 15.

A new swindle is being worked by a pair of strangers in southern Michigan, according to the Auburn : (Ind.) Dis patch. A stranger appears on the road apparently searching for a lost valuable diamond ring, but leaves after getting some responsible person interested, of fering $100 for the return of the ring. Soon after his departure a' tramp ap pears .and picks up what appears to be the missing ring. The .person who has been offered HOO reward for its return sees an. opportunity to make a stake by , giving the tramp a liberal sum for it, but fails to find the owner.

Without looking, he Jumped in head foremost. There was no. water in the tank, and he struck the cement bottom with a thud. Both hi a wrists were badly sprained and he sus tained a severe scalp injury. This will probably be Jennings' last season on the professional diamond, as the veteran player is now a senior in the Cornell col legs of law, and is said to be eager to begin the practice of his profession. The law seems to have captured many ot the baseball stars of former days, and many of the pleaders of to-day studied their Blackstone during the off-season while they were still famous as players, says a New York critic. Most prominent of .this class may be mentioned Senator Gorman, of Maryland, prominent as a candidate for president, who was among the pioneers of the baseball profession. Of a more recent school, along the same lines, is John Montgomery Ward. Famous as a pitcher for the Providence club, but better known as shortstop, captain and manager of the giants, he is now a prosperous lawyer in Chicago. Likewise, he has earned enviable repu- f tatlon as a golf player.

Harvard scored six points in the first half, but in the Becond was forced to make a safety and then, after being thrice(' repulsed at Harvard's goal line, Pennsy, with her guardsback, took the ball across the goal line, after having carried the ball near 200 yards In.four series of rushes.
