Rev. J. W. Malone was chairman of the evening and opened the program with a few timely remarks as to the meaning of the gathering. Michael Mellodv rendered a very pathetic ballad entitled "Heaven AVill Protect the Working Girl." that brought tears (Of laughter) to the eyes of the large crowd. He responded to an encore with a capital rendition of the aria from Aida.

As was the case with the three others. Hugh did not once touch on base ball, but he was given a flattering ovation when v he had done. " Mike O'N'eil - the sagacious leader of the Vtica New York State league - team responded with a few well chosen words that skipped entirely the topic of his profession, and substituted sim( good stories, delivering which Mike is much the same kind of I master that he is in mouiaing oa clubs.
