WANTED TO LYNCH THE UMPIRE EnthusickstsSurrounded the Little Rock Jail, Clamoring For Vengeance. Little Rock, Ark., Sept. 19.—The Little Rock and Nashville teams of the Southern League are neck and neck in the fight for the pennant and the intense feeling culminated in a row at the game here yesterday. In a critical part of the contest Crozier, of Little Rock, was on second when Martin singled and Crozier attempted to score. The ball got to the plate just as Crozier did 'and Catcher Fisher swung at him and apparently missed him, but Umpire Johnstone called Crozier out. First basement Wright, who was sitting on the bench ran into the diamond and knocked Johnstone down. Both men were arrested and secured bail, but it was deemed best to keep Johnstone in jail all night because of the presence of a mob of 500 enthusiasts around the jail who clamored for vengeance on the umpire.
