The base • ball slttuatlon atprcsent , summed
up in few words , is about as follows ; It looks
mora and more , as the days go by , that the
brotherhood must result in a lizzie It is ox *
Lcrdingly doubtful whether a ganrb Is over
played under such a management Mauy of
the old league players are quietly sieging
with the old clubs and going hack on tbolr
promises to the brotherhood , The players
uro gradually having thu dust blown out of
their eyes To bo sure the brotherhood lead
ers are still making a stubborn light to do
something , but their chances of succcodlng
nro about ono In ten , The league is quietly
formulating ltsp Inns for thu coming season
T boy will tuko backus muay of their old
plojers as they can get , but In any event
they will open upu now era for the young
blood The tioachory of the men whom they
have fo9torcd and miulo rich has had a mar
velous developing effect upon their caution
ary hump ' 4 ho American association Is a
dead ojck in I ho pit , and as a last desperate
resort may link Its fortunes with the pirati
cal brotherhood The minor leagues uro allen

Western association to include St Louis ,
Louisville , Columbus , St , Paul , Minneapolis ,
Kansas City , Omaha and either Milwaukee
or Denver is not improbable

though the city received thousands nna
thousands of uollars worth of advertising

been nccordod but niggardly patronage
Now that the Amoiican association has boon
shipwrecked bv the dosortioa of Cincinnati ,

better In base ball loft for St Louis than to
Join a minor league , and this she must do era

of St Louis knocking for admission at the
doors of the Western association before

Ans It is a draw This question has
been answoicd a score of times in Tin : Bur ,
and is a wormy old chestnut But to duel
date , This saina question bos appeared In
every form of dispute known to man which
admits of wager The decisions fioiu au
thorities uro practically unanimous that con
tests of such u uatuio uio ties , and the prin
ciple of this is Justified by the fundamental
idea of bolting , and it is icnulrcd
if ono ono would guard agulust
tbo most disagrccablo feat uro of n
wager , and that is a misunderstanding I
cannot say that , tlio original of all bets was
on a horse race , but it certainly was a con
test of some description , in which ouch man
backed his horse or himself squaiuly uud
evenly and without undue udv itages us
against his competitors Slncovthat period
tbo tradition has been handed down that
when a man pioposcs to Lauk ouo of two
horses bis friend , If the latter takes him up ,
is understood to hack tlio ether Or , in other
words , neither has tbo advantage of the otlior
by possessing two out of the three clmnees
Incident to every trial ; cither one sldo must
win or the other , or neither , To make a bet ,
unless it Is specifically stipulated that one
party gives odds , each can have ono
chance of winning only , und by gen
eral consent that is all cither has
ever tnado Therefore if A backed hi
woigtit against B , it is to bo presumed that i
B backed his in a like maimer ; aud no quib
bio can bo nllo.red iu B's favor on the ground |
_ _
that A mudo use of the word mire " Although - H
though B did not oxpr , > ss it , it was under H
stood tlint he made the same stntcino'it This |
_ _
is absolutely the only I ulo under widen no H
misunderstanding to the unfair advautago of |
_ _
one ns against the otliei Is possible This |
_ _
question arises every day , and that very H
fact constitutes u sttong aigumont that the _ _ |
universally accepted i ulo for the dcterunna- |
_ _
lion is the proper rule , If A tbciofoio H
wishes to take his wager out of the class , _ H
which makes it a tie under the circumstances H
ol this case , he would have been obliged to _ H
use some spccillu terms oxprosslv forbidding _ _ H
the oidlnaiy understanding of such a wager , f H
aud to s ' ny explicitly that by moro ho H
mount that the uumbor 150 should count In H
favor of his opponent ; H
