Mandger James O'Rourke smiles again. Not at his team, but at some of the Connecticut league maungers. This time he is smiling at the expense of Manager Danaher of New Haven, from whom he won a .$5 hat. Mana ger Danaher bet Manager O'Rourke that he did not have any title to Keyes, the third bagsman for :tho Meriden team. Jamea took the net, and it was a cinch. Yesterday he re ceived a telegram from J. II. Farrell, of the National association, which reads like this: "Please stop Keyes from playing with Meriden. First ac cepted terms recorded here, is with Bridgeport, and he is awarded to Bridgeport under the rule. J. H. Far rell." Manager O'Rourke replied by telegraph last night asking Secretary Farrell to notify President Wl P. Bristol of the Meriden club of the de cision. O'Rourke stands n second win ner in the matter of disputes with players, and Manager Danaher pays for the hat. LOOKING FOR A GAME.

For a game call a Camp's block, Maple street." Here is an opportun ity for amateur teams that are spoiling for a fight and say they cannot get anybody to knock the chip otf their shoulders. Now Is the time for the Clovers of the south end, the Katydids of Town plot and the Wasps of the eastern section to buckle on their fellows mean by putting Such an all ellows mean . by putting such an all around challenge, for it is nothing else, in a paper, everybody reads. BASH BALL NOTES. There will be lots of boisterous en tertainment provided by the tact that the-fences on the Holyoke grounds can be occasionally reached by bats men. , . Holyoke will not find Hartford like the team of last season. Captain Daly has put a lot of cleverness Into the general play of the team in its practice games. Old Sleuth Fleming, the old Hart ford favorite, is to be dropped by the Philadelphia Nationals. Fleming is a grand" minor leaguer bvU that's where he stops. Dr Reisling is pitching well for To ledo and, doing timely hitting. Friends of Reisling say that Pittsburg made a sad mistake When it allowed the doc tor to sign anywhere else. Tansey niay' eventually , get back Into the outfield, lie Is a sure catch and covers a big plot. In, the iuneld Gene hasn't had practice enough this i year to snow just how much he can do. Odwell, the . youngster who is tak ing the place of Harry Dolan in light field for Cincinnati, while the latter is recovering fvom an injury, ' made two bluriders yesterday that helped St Louis in winning. A wicked western critic Hays that the rule forbidding players to receive bouquets and similar presents when going to the bat is a big money-saver for those players in the habit of 'buy-! ing bouquets for themselves Steinberg, a young man who former.' ly played basketball for Holyoke, is co be given a trial on Connie . Mack's Philadelphia Americans as a, catcher, lie has had experience in New York state with independent teams.

THE QUESTION OF SUNDAY BASEBALL Sunday baseball has had its first in inngs on eastern grounds among the big league teams. , The exeriment made at Brooklyn, by teams of the Na tional lengue raised a, number of ques tions worth passing mention. The argument of the managers that Sun day baseball is played Jn Cincinnati is not convincing when applied to New York or Brooklyn. The wide open Sunday of the middle west Is not yet an institution of the city life of the Atlantic seaboard, for the. theater or the saloon. .. Public sentiment still cliiigs to , puritanical respect for tho Sabbath, if. you, plwase to call it this, and tho law reflects; in all probability, tho wishes of the majority. There jh, on the other hand, some xeno in the defense of 'tanager Hanloii: "The people Qf Brooklyn ought' to velcome Sunday baseball, a a healthy recrea tion for Sunday afternoon and as a means of keeping young men out of trouble. lit Cincinnati, there is al ways a decrease In the number of ar rests when a game is played. .Young men wan' amusement, and they are better off to find it in a place where no liquor Is sold." This has a highly moral sound,, but professional baseball managers ate not in the business as missionaries, and they want Sunday baseball solely because it fattens their gate receipts. This great national pastime ha been put on a cleau and self-respecting ba sis after years of fighting against row dyism and elements of disrepute that foretold ruin if persisted in. The sport-loving public, want to see base ball kept "on the level." It was not "on the level" for the managers of the Brooklyn and Boston teams to dodge possible trouble with the law by sell Ing "score cards" for a Sunday game instead of admission tickets. These "fake" tickets, were sold at the regular admission rates, seventy-five, fifty and twenty-five cents They were obvious ly a trick to prevent evidence being used against the management in case of police action This suggests too un pleasantly the dodges of pool-room men and the wiles of policy runners in "faking" their slips to look like stock quotations. It Is patent that baseball, well managed, will pay big profits ou the Imvestment without Sunday base ball, which is an "extra dividend." IS it going to be worth while to degrade the sport and the players by resorting to sueh cheap and flimsy devices as that exhibited in Brooklyn Cosmopolitan New York would wel come Sunday baseball, In paying pat ronage, but so long as the law says no it Is beneath what ought to be the dig. nlty of the "League Magnates" to re sort to petty subterfuges to gain their point.

ROOT WHIPS GEO GARDNER Beats Him Down In Six Hounds and Gets Decision Referee o f Walcott Bout Tries to Explain. Chicago, May 3. -Jack Root turned the trick again last night. He won his fifth battle rroru Gfcorgo Gardner at the Waverly Athletic, club in decisive style. The bout went the six-round limit. Root had the victory well in hand all through. A big crowd turned out for the fight, and the x cltemeut was intense. In the first round it was pretty even thing. Gardner started his regular in-fightlng and kept hammering away at Itoot's wide section throughout the round. In the second Root reached Gardner with a left to the jaw, Staggering the Lowell man. Root maintained his advantage and had a wrap on hid wallops at the gong. In the third it was pretty even, both being a bit careful and Gardner not quite so ready to mix it, he contenting himself with efforts to wear Root down with body punches. : .The fourth went much the: same way. It was tame and both men worked cautlotisly. ' , The fifth- round proved to be the hummer. Gardner started out vicious ly at Root's body. ; Rtfot suddenly shot A hard right to Gardner's jaw, flooring him. Gardner pulled hlmttelf together slowly and went Into- a clinch. ' He kept Root from following up his ad vantage throughout the remainder of the round. The erowd stood up and howled for Roof to go in and finish. Root tried but couldn't land a finishing blow. Up to this time it seemed to be clearly Root's battle. He started out in the sixth round with a wild effort to knock out his rival. In this session both hammered at each other like angry stevedoi'es. With thirty seconds to go Root almost knocked Gardner down again with n glancing right to the jaw. Gardner was scoring heavilv witb. Jolts to the body. Tiut they diit not feaft the Bohenvtan. The round wound up In as lively a fashipn as any fight that has been held here in some time. Both men were tired, but seem ed bent on smashing in some kind of a blow to score a knockout. Neither however, seemed to, have a finishing blow left. At the gong Referee Oeorgo Slier awarded the bout to Root. WALCOTT. AN UNKNOWN.

Duck Sulli van made a statement yesterday morn ing In regard to his decision at Colma Friday night in the matter of the Joe Walcott-Dixie Kid steal. It was the first chance he has had to speak, as he has been busy dodging angry sports who bet their money on Walcott. "Alee Gregglns." said Duck, "had no right to jump into the ring and do to me whAt he did. Gregglns give a bum decision oncn himself, and he got a chance to change If. Nobody jumped into the ring and beat him tip. At Sacramento a couple of years ago a referee was allowed to change his decision. If I thought the crowd be lieved I was wrong I would have changed my decision." SIX HARD ROUNDS. Chester, May ft.- Jack. Farrell of Wilmington and Harry Lenny of thin dty, lightweights fought a fierce and bloody six-round battle last night oe fore the Broadway A. C. The crowd was so large that the sale of tickets was stopped. Lenny forced the fight ing and had the best of every round but the fifth, when Farrell used foul tactics and refused to obey the ref eree. The police interfered and the fight was allowed to continue after Lnnnyjs left eye' had been split, and the blood smearml the fighters and the referee during the clinches. Joe Grim of Philadelphia was knocked out after three orunds of hard fighting by Jack Reading, also of Philadelphia. Jock CIncy VlotOr nt London. LONDON. May 3.
