His first appearance in that position was so successful that he studied the art of curving-, which combined with the great speed of his da- livery, caused him to be regarded as a most promising pitcher. Uis first professional engagement was in 138'J, with tho St. Paul club of the Western association, with which ho remained during tho season of 1800. alternating as pitcher in a majority of its championship contests. In 1801, Meekin played with the Lonisvilln club of the American association, fielding so well in his position that hi: led in that respect the pitchers in the official averages. Meekin commenced the season of 1S'J2 with the Louisville club, then a member of the National league and American association, pitching in seventeen championship games, and finishing- the season with the Washington club of the riarr.a league, taking part as pitcher in twenty-three cham- ! pionship games.

The league season is now very much open, and the games that are being ' played count just as much as those that will be decided in two or three months from now. There is a moral in this assertion, and it is that the club that attends to its knitting from ' the time that the liag drops will stand ' a, bettei- show for the penant than the club that dallies along and plays perfunctory ball and does not wake up until the eiid of the season, and then makes a brilliant finish. The old fable of the tortoise and the hare may be applied to the base bill teams. , Because the season is youn£, and ' there are a hundred more games to be played, is no excuse for fritting away a game. Tho wcakneos of an advers- arv should be taken advantage of as quickly now as iu the heighth of the Benson. The club that can secure a , long lead in the spring will have half ' the battle won, and if tho opposing ' clubs develop unusual strength, the i loss of a few games will not be in the ! nature of a Waterloo.—Sporting Life. ,,- v -.-- — Ullf fc=iJCIW» *«V "i"J l"*J •""• mn-r.r* i*cclvi>.l. «1 ;i box. 0 fnr £5.

Hollister, '07, have been appointed captains of tho class athletic teams which contest for the class championships one week from next Monday. Charles E. Coon, formerly assistant secretary of the treasury, last week telegraphed to Washington from New York city his resignation of the presidency of'the Columbia Athletic club ol that city. The resignation has been accepted. Daniel McLeod, the California wrest- lin"- ahampion. was worsted in acatch- as-catch-can at San Francisco. April 1-1 in a match with Tom McMahone of Detroit McLeod agreed to throw McMahone three times in an hour, but only succeeded in throwing him twice. This is the second contest between the j men, McLeod winn ing the first. | W.

AD dSJMGERT'S CASE- A CIilc'iK" View ..f me U.-KC.-VO K.Ue u:ni tile J'lKlhor'n .Suit. ritchcr Humbert'.-! suit a.gainst the Chica"-o ball club involves the old question about tho right and obligations of the reserve rule, says the Chica"0 Record. Under the new National league rul«, however, tho player will certainly have a hard time of it holding a club responsible in court for his salary durir>cr the. period that it virtually holds him under reserve, although refusing- to pay him the salary he demands. Formerly he was held under an out-and-out "reserve" law, so- called, but the weakness of this rule in making the clubs apparently responsible for salary caused its abolition—or at least a change of name. Now when a League club wants a player to sign a certain salary, but is unwilling for him to go to some other elub in case he refuses, it does not keep him under reserve, apparently. If called into court the manager of the team can truthfully say in such an emergency: "He is not held by us. We release him from all obligation; let him go where- soever he may." Hut the trouble for the player is that he can't go anywhere. If he applies to another club the latter aseer- Lns the manner of bis "release' before it is free to sign him, and if released under conditions above mentioned, no club can sign him under the new arrangement. It is only a clever way of getting out of the legal obligations involved by tho. oW reserve rule. Yet no one familiar with baseball sympathizes with the player. He always has the best ot it, and the clubs can nnt be blamed for adopting 1 strunge a 8500 parse and his expenses. . o FREE ;AD!NG ROOM, ^ea Daily and Evening. 616 Broadway.
