pays so much per club to the major body for
the privlloeo ol drawluK tholr brc.ith. This
tax Is also aupposod to assure the lessor
organizations Immunity against Inroads from
unscrupulous managers nnd base ball agents ,
aiiU several other varieties of protection.
But tin fact is It assures or insures nothing ,
absolutely nothing , BO far as the National
league Is concerned. It Is all powerful , how
ever , among the organizations of the minor
order. They nro not allowed to monkey with
each other In any paitiosUr , but forced to
live like cooing doves together. . If there Is
nnv monkoving to bo done the
National will do It. They hnvo plenty
capacity , plenty Inclination nnd plenty
tlmo to do nil the monkeying for the whole
base ball conlIngcney.
- If the nntlonul IcuR'jo wants a player from
the ranks of any of the minors , she gets him
by hook or crook. If the club who holds his
contract refuses to surrender him for n nom
inal figure , in order that the transaction may
have a business like aspect , it will bo found
that some one of the National league clubs
linvo an old prior claim on him , and they
gobble him up without reward or conscience.
The Ocnlns case for Illustration.

This spring Nick Young declared that
Jack McQunlil should novorutnpiro nno thor

thought Now York made Boston several
presents last tall in order to boat the grand
old man of Chicago out of the championship.
That tnado Undo Nick , as well ns nil Boston
nnd Now York , vcrv sere on His McQunld-
lota. nnd notwithstanding ho was the
most finished and competent umplro
In the business , they refused him njob this
spring. They hud n lot of Hursts , Emslies ,
Maccullars , Walters , Mahonoys aud similar
vegetables on hand , and Informed Mr. Me-
Qunld that ho might go back to carrying the
hod for all they cared.
So JncK. ho signed with the Millenium
Plan outllt. Ho is the only real umpire wo
have hna , but wo hnd to give him up.
The league staff , nsldo from IC'.ng Gaff. (
quickly proved very Wnlly Fesscndon , nnd
to keep the populace in line in several cities ,
it was ncccssarv that n helper for GalTuoy

Now the story is being circulated that Mc-

The ivtnor organizations , sooner or Inter ,

The great nnd only bate ball rule-maker ,
Nlchodomus E. Young , has n little job ou
hand which , It is honed , bo will attend to at
his earliest comenienco , and that is the abro
gation of the Idiotic law that denies a 'man
his base when struck on the hand or forearm
by n pitched ball. This rare piece of leglsln-
ti'on ccrtalnlv never evolved from Grandpa
Nick's Citglo brain , nnd 1 know n ; soon as his
massive ova falls on tills for grandpa has
read TIIU'UEI : for lol these ninny years ho
will set about securing its appeal ,
Wlion Indiruirfpolis wus hero the
last time , Frank Genius received n
etnasti on the hand from ono
of VicKory's cannon shots that fairly pulvor-
l/cd his arm up to the elbow. It not only
knocked him out of the game , but kept him
nn Uio bench for n week afterwards , nnd for
a tlmo it was highly doubtful whether ho
would ever permanently recover from the
hurt or not. It wus n hornblo smash , and
that night Frank's hand wus as black ns
your hat. But he novur got his base. Gun-
thcr. the novelist , was umpiring , nnd no jo-
fuscu to allow Genius to will It down , not ,
liouovor. because ha wus cognizant ol any
rule providing for such n decision , but because -
cause ho claimed that it was the wrong hand
that received the blow. Ho said ifitlmd
been his rlcht instead of bis. loft , ho would
Imvu nllowul Urn his base. And Kdltor
Hiuhtcr is so glad Guiithy , hU protege , is
doing well out west.
But to return to the rule In onostion. It
wgs originally formulated to reach the cnso
of such fo'xy boys ns Curt Welch. There is
the boy who can make his Oaso nbout twlca
out of three times by ndroltlv receiving the
ball against bis hand , arm or shoul
der , nnd n man who can nnd
does do this , Is not only deserving of Ills base ,
but ought to ba allowed to score , to boot.
But , in several particulars , there Isn't n tialf
dozen Curt Wclchs In tlio business. On the
contrary the average ball player is as fear
ful of being hit by tt.u ball , as hu Is of facing
his landlady , and the Welch trick wus a rare

* What n pretty mois was mudo out of the
'Western league schedule In the first cham
pionship division this season , to bo sure.
This , however , was partly owing to tha pcr-
ilstont Interference of J. Pluvins , but mainly
to the bhortslghtodnoss of the schoaulo com
mittee , Not onca this spring bus tha Omaha
rrmilcs been given nn opportunity to see
what kind of hall either the Milwaukee or
Mlnnciipolis teams nut up. 'I hey were both
hero for n series of games , but in each In-
itanco wore forestalled bva lioavonly shower

ult. Milwaukee will not bo scon on thu homo

w'a's no reference whatever to the Western

it , has suffered heavy financial loss during

that all losses can bo recovered before the
