Tlo is KO, bccauso of his twenty-lour years' continuous service as secretary, and for tho past twelve yours as presidenl ind secretary of tbe loading baseball organization of tho country, and it might be said, the loading sporting arganiitation of the world. And prob- »bly few men caro less lor marked attention and notoriety than he. His labits ol life are quiet, plain and domestic. No man living is more devoted to hia home and family, or enjoys it to a greater extent. When not sailed away by business -cares or attending a baseball meeting ho cun always be lound within a stone's .throw •jf his pleasant, beautiful homo at Mount Pleasant—Washington's aristocratic suburb. At this homo he has his office, the headquarters ol tho National League tnd American Association ol Profes- J'ltESIDEN'T YOUNG. Haseball clubs, as tho organization is now named. There he has the issistance of his estimable wilo and Interesting family of growing 1 chil- 3ren, who are of the greatest help to him in the compilation of baseball statistics and .averages. Mrs. Young 1 Is especially apt in helping her husband at these arduous statistical duties. She has made a study of baseball since the days ol her girlhood, and has facts Mid figures at her tongue's end whenever a disputed point arises which is lent to Mr. Young for his opinion or decision. So, also, with the children. They know more about the great na- ilonal game than a majority ol the owners ol clubs in the big league. The best estimate ol N, E. Young's character is given by his near neigh- 3ors. They soy of him that he is a juiet, concise gentleman, who would not knowingly Injure anything that breathes by .word or action. He is flven credit lor the .strictest .integrity, and ia pointed «ut as.» man who would frown down the ;sUjrht«8t suspicion ol wrong doing. His ' word ; .i« U -good as bin bond, and bis whole character .la coupled .with words ol ;>r»l§e by those who know turn, Since all connection . with-; baseball his ivory effort has bceniie,rotud to purging from the game - every hurtful or objectionable.-l*»tnr.e, and to make it tbe sport..to deserve the support and approval of the be»t elements ol the population of _thejBountry. How sue- jfjwful he has been in accomplishing ,hls is shown more than ever in the lew games played so lar in this championship season. More people have kttended the opening games than in »ny previous year in the history of ihe sport, and . those who attend are of the very best class. It is no wonder, then, that the Spaldlngs, Reaches, Harts, Days, So- lens, etc., are willing to intrust every question which may arise solely to his judgment They know that his deci- lion in a matter will be judicial, and ihat only the strictest integrity will fuide him in arriving at the lounda- ;ion ol any problem. Thousands and thousands of dollars are intrusted to ilm annually by the magnates with nothing but their estimate of his character as their bond lor the accounting ol every farthing which has passed ihrough his bands. Every once in a while lollowers ol baseball read something about "the 'ather ol the league," but it may in ruth bo said that he is the "daddy of all the lathers." This is his thirty- burth year in baseball, as a player.an umpire, a mwiager, a club owner, and SB the guiding head ol the destinies of the National league. He now occu- >ies a position in connection with base- iall at large that the second baseman occupies on a team ol nine players. Ho s the keynote of the organization and ;he keystone ol the baseball structure. Nothing does him so much good as to lave some one speak or write to him about the record ol any of the old diners la the business ol professional ill playing. The records he has are absolutely correct lor twenty three rears back, all In the writing ol a nember ol the Young family, a* it occurs frequently in the baseball season ,hat he becomes go crowded with work . bat he is compelled to call on a Aon or daughter, or perhaps his amiable vile, to belp him work all the records jj. V. He -was but a mere boy at tlte ouUrreak«< the war tetiwen the statei, but 'he was game to the core and aiuonf the first from hia home county to en list in the Union servile. Just before the war he appeared as u handsome .athletic young fellow with m«>cle that would htife done credit 60 om •again as largo ws he was. lie wa looked on as the 'best cricket player ii the section ol country in which h< lived, playing frequently on eleven which hud besides himself George am Harry Wright as members. Cricke did not become as popular in thi •country as it had been hoped it wcul. •become. The game was too tedious fo people who desire quick action i terminating a game, and, 'the pluyer observing this, they drifted into ane-v game, which was studied out by crowd of mere boys, w.ho gave it th name of baseball. It was about this time that Mr Young responded to the call of hi country with alacrity immediately alter the firing on Fort Sumpter, an marched to the front. When th soldier -boys were lying about killinj time 'between days ol fighting anc 1 skirmishing "Nick" Young used to tel them About tho(jnew;pame which boys in the vicinity of bis home ha been playing. His enthusiasm go his messmates interested, and when ball ol yarn could .tte obtained on a forage all were happy, lor it meant game of new baseball, which interests players and spectators alike. Mr. Young bad the best understanding the game, and ol course was looked on as the crack of the army. His reputation as an athlete f ollowei him to Washing-ton after the close o the war. He concluded to settle her and secure a position in one ol the de partments, being a fine penman am accountant, and when he reached his aim was the happiest young man in the city. His love for outdoor sport* and his skill witb the new game while in the army impelled him to watch the gomes which the younger boys abou' the city had meanwhile learned. I was not long beiore his abilities as an organizer became recognized, and the team which had "Young Nick" Younf in its make-up was always eonsiderei the favorite with thp people whi watched the boys play on the com mons about the city evening afte evening. A year or so later ho attracted thi attention of Mr. A. G. Jlills, at one time president of the National league, and Mr. Charles E. Coon, late presi dent of the Columbia Athletic club, The three banded themselves together and formed what was known as the Olympic club, of Washington, who, for many years, were tho champions o: the south. Mr. Young was by all odds the star ol the team. He would play in the outfield one day and the next come to the infield, generally playing on first base when he did so. Asa batter, however, is where 'be shone particularly. For several seasons he led this team in hitting, and besides was recognized as the speediest base runner in the country. He was also a faithful, hard worker for the interests ol his club, always,;, cheerful and always willing to go in a game and give the team his very best efforts. Thai was how he got his reputation. The Olympic club was organized some time in lt>80, and tho organization was kept Intact until the year 1873, when it disbanded. In New York, in 1871, the first meeting ,ol representatives ol professional baseball clubs was held. At this meeting Mr. Young was made secretary. At the meeting in 1684 he succeeded Mr. A. G. Mills as president, and the two offices ol president and secretary were combined. Since that time he has been the executive head and financial manager ol prolessional baseball in v the United States. That he has taken a great interest in the work is admitted by everybody. That he has been the mainstay of the game is denied by none. That to his integrity and sterling business qualifications most ol the success ol baseball _ due has been quoted by all the others who have been or are now interested in the game. He is a man that every ball player and club owner in the country is proud to have lor a friend, and it is needless to say that here in Washington he is known and appreciated at his true worth.

According to the 9»n FrandsooCal there Is one man alone, and only one who ever whipped Jim Corbett, ex cept, perhaps, his father, and that one is a baseball man. The Call's stor is as follows: "A young Oaklander, who went tc school with Corbett, in speaking- o the man who-had lowered the colors of tho onco famous John T* Sullivan Charley Mitchell and others of lesse note, the schoolmate <>i I'ompatlou Jim said: 'Corbotl wns one of tin most disagreeable fellows while a school that I ever met with. He wa U bip, tall follow then, bat did no have much more than enough HetJi tc cover his biff bones. He pretended t be something of a scrapper, butdidn' have the strength that he has «fc developed. Jim McDonald, the base ball umpire, went ^.o the same schoo with us and was very popular nmon( the boys. He was not very toll, bu he Tvas very stout for his size, anc •could handle himself in fine style. " 'One day Corbettand McDonald hai a dispute over some trivial matter am it was agreed that they should go ou into the yard and have it out. A rinj was lormed toy the boys ;and the two young fellows went at eacl •other. McDonald at once showed himself far ahead of Corbett, .although fuHy a head shorter than the lat tor. He was thumping the preson •champion in the most approved styli •and would soon have knocked him ou- had not the teachers come out ol the school and oeparated them. McDonalc after that was the hero of the hou and became more popular than ever. "McDonald is said to be the only person who ever succeeded in whipping 1 ' 'Pompadonr Jim, except probably hii father or mother." SIOUX Cl'lY'S SHORT STOP. Jonah WsldU Ii One of tli« Cleverei Wnatern JJenfcuer*. Joseph Walsh, the clever short stop of the Sioux City team of tbe Western league was born in November, 1S65, a Chicago, but it was at Macon, Ga,,tha he learned to play ball. His proles sional career began in 18SO with tb< Omaha club, lie remained with th< Omaha club until the close of th< championship season ol 1887. Ho be gan the season of 18S8 with the Mm neapolis club, of tho Western associa tion, but finished it with the Milwau kees of tlio same association. In ISSi Walsh joined the Omaha club an< took part that year in it as a shor stop in 121 championship contests ranking second in the official fielding averages of that organization. Walsh was with the Omahas during the season ol 1890, and in the 118 championship games led the short stops ia the offlcia 1 JOSEPH WALSH. averages ol that league for that year. He began the season of 1891 with the Omaha club, and after taking part in ninety-one championship games his release was obtained by the Baltimore club ol the American association, with which club he finished out the season, laking part in ninety-lour championship games, eighty-two ol which he ilayed in center field. In 1892 he was ligned by Manager G. H. Schmelz ol ,he Columbus club of the Western eague, and remained with it until that nagu» disbanded along in the summer months. When Manager Schmelz was engaged to handle the Chattanooga ;eam of the Southern league, for the season of 1893, Walsh waa one ol the irat players he signed for his team, tfalsh is considered a good fielder, Ine batsman and clever short stop, ie is doing good work for tho Sioux !ity club. A REMINDER OF '83. How Bancroft Threw Away a ch»nc« for • Fortune. Manager Bancroft ol Cincinnati, while in a reminiscent mood the other lay, said: "I sometimes think that •all players and managers who are getting pretty lair salaries do not ap- ireciate their good lortune. They are letter off than most of those who have nvestmonts in the game. I sometimes hink I once made a baseball mistake. Vhen the American association was alked about, Baltimore's postmaster, lenderson, was offered a franchise, le wanted me to join him, and said >e'd give me a half interest if I'd lur- lish and manage the team. In those ays, when the, reserve rule was not in orce, I could have taken hall the. Doroit team down there, but while I was .ebating the question Hank, the bill ioster, and Billy ftarnie slipped in head ol us. They made J30.COO that 'ear, and I figure that 11 I'd gone own with a,much 'stronger team we- would have done b*tter. Still, as all hat money was subsequently lost, I on't know as the mistake was a Tory rave one."—Sporting Aucnit Belmont EndfdTOrlni to Hqnelch Gambling on Knee*. One ol the men who is endeavoring to reform the turf and give an air of respectability t» racing in the east that could not bo g-ivon without their assistance is August liclmont, owner of the lUcmton stable, banker, broker, clubman, ben vivant and patron of art, yachting and athletics. Mr. Uelmo'ut inherits tlie intense passion for UioroTig-hbreds possessed by his father, and it is impossible to disassociate Ins r.iiinu with honest and clean racing. In the short time his colors have bo«n on the turf ho has been Tory snec.e.ssful, and the make-up of the" ItU-Tiiton stable for IS'.M indicates ;i.noti»rr suason of prosperity. The report is that Mr. Belmont will overlook the many shortcomings of the colored jockey. "Tony" Hamilton, and paythitu SJO.OuO to pilot thn J.tlemton ATJ6U8T HELMONT. animals to victory or defeat this season. "G-ive me tho confidence and co-operation of ten just such men as Mr. IJelmont," says a turf official, "and I'll guarantee to bring the American Uirf so high up that not even tho church fanatic will be able to point out one disagreeable feature of the sport" Men like Belmont, with an unlimited .supply of money at their disposal, arc needed in the west as well as in the east. The day is coming- when all race meetings will be confined to a period of thirty days and the obnoxious gambling feature of the foreign book will be releg-ated to oblivion. This can be accomplished if tbe influential men will co-operate against the small-fry owners whose sole ambition is to "lay up" their animals until the price in the betting ring suits, when they suddenly show startling reversals of form. They do not keep any such commodity as "reversals in form" about the Belmont stable, and if the animals ol the millionaire horseman arc not in the first flight their defeats »r accepted as the merit of inferior an PITCHER WE8JERVBLT. The Phenomenal Young Twlrlnr of th« New York Clnb. Huyler Westervelt is a promising young pitcher who has made quite a •eputation in tbe amateur ranks. He was born Oct. 1, 18oO, at Piermont, N. Y., and it was while attending school at his native place that he learned to play ball He soon gained quite a local reputation as a pitcher, but it was not until after he had joined the Bnglewood (N, J.) Field Club's team in ISiiS that he came into prominence. He remained with that club until the close ol the season ol 1889. His excellent SISTERS HAIR GROWER W. h. L'ORTKH. Uinpgist AKTIFlCiAl. CC.
