Neiv Haven, March 15. 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

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

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,

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.

novel contests, one for young women
at sawing wood and one for young
men at trimming women's hats, were
the f eataires of the "reception ; night"
entertainment given by the John
Brown club in Torrington. - Ten young
women took part in the - wood sawing
match, and the first prize was award
ed Miss Hattie Hitchcock, who sawed
her stick in eight seconds. Fifteen,
men participated in the hat trimming

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.
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.
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.
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.
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

ey Clnb'ft Spring: Meet.
. "NEW ORLEANS, March ; 15. 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, Hobson's Choice third.

Close FlnlBbeii at Oakland.
SAN FRANCISCO, March 15. Close
finishes marked three of the races at
Oakland. The last event at six and
a half furlongs for three-year-olds
aroused the most excitement when
Sailor Knot and Celebrant fought it
out all through the final furlong and
Daly landed Sailor Knot first by , a
nose. 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.

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. He then consults
a diamond expert, and learns that tha
sparkler is worth about 15 cents. .'

the swimming tank. . 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. Harry Taylor,
who was the legal representative of the
Players' union, studied for ; his profes
sion while he played first base for Louis
ville and Baltimore. AttorneyMike Sul
livan, of Boston, a Massachusetts sena
tor; James H. O'Rourke, of Bridgeport,
Conn., and Pete Hustings, of Milwaukee,
both members of the bar, were ball play
ers of prominence, and O'Rourke, who is
past 50, i still in the game as part own
er. ; Pond, who pitched for Baltimore,
became a surgeon with the United States
army, and Doc Bushong is a New York
dentist. Joe Quinn is an undertaker in
St. Louis.. Link Lowe is part owner of
the leading hotel at Beaver Falls, Pa.,
and Jlmmie McAleer is a partner in the
leading haberdashery at Youngstown, O.
Charlie Clmskey, Tom Loftus, Ed Han
Ion and Connie Mack are other present
day managers who have risen from the,
ranks. Mike Griffin is connected with a
brewery and Danny Richardson, is a
druggist "Uncle", Nick , Young passed
through every stage of baseball from
player to president, with the exception
of owner.
N Edgar , Wrightingtou, recently select

Harvard : team W8S
more battered
than that which went to Philadelphia in.
1896, having already suffered two de
feats and being considerably weakened
by injuries. Both the star half backs,
Wrightington and Dunlop, had bad legs,
and played on a portion of the game.
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. Since leaving college
Wrightington has assisted in the coach
ing at Cambridge from time to time.'
He has been more prominent, however,
as referee in all the big college games;
except those in which Harvard has taken
