'- Omaha Be lAaaed Wire.
- Jersey City, April 21. There was
mutiny in the' ranks of the Jersey
City International league baseball
Club yesterday. '
fThe opening of the league season
was at hand. The municipality is
conducting an advertising campaign
in which a peg-leg emblem in honor
of Peter s Stuyvesant, the Dutch
tolonial governor, is prominent.
Owner J. F. Fran of the Jersey
City ball club, being public spirited,
had a peg-leg insignia emblaeoned
on the breasts of the ball players'
uniforms. But he failed to consider
the temperamental tendencies of class
AA apple knockers. Beholding the
new regalia an hour before game
time today the athletes balked. They
agreed the wooden pin emblem would
make them the butt of ribald jibes.
And to a man they refused to leave
the club house until it was removed.
After a long attempt to persuade
them to change their minds the em
, Mcms were ripped off and the season
was Ojpcned,
