P11IL.ADEI..FH I A, April 28 Though very short, the baseball season has already furnished many surprises, and will continue to for some time to come or until the strongest teams Ret down to buines8 and finally settle into strons positions. In the National league Brooklyn has made it quite clear that 11 anion has still a winning ball team, when once the king uf managers has his boys poached into team work, l'hiladelphia "has h strong team and misses only one of the old men. Lajoie. New York will grow stronger as the players become familiar with each other, but the loss of three pitchers like Mercer, Carrick and Hanley means the small end of many a game this season to the giants. The Boston league team has Shown up well. Outside the work of Demon-treville at third, the boys are playing faster ball than last season in the Held and on the bases, and prorates to hold their end up, as the pitchers are strong. MITCHKLIj.

Third will be the corner to develop the loss or a great number of games, unless Demontre Mile improves wonderfully. His throwing Is poor, and it looks very much as if "Gene" was attempting to perform with a punctured wing. The team will play three games at Brooklyn this week and then return to open up a long home season at the South Knd grounds with New York. In the west St lunula is showing up "Well, with "I'atsey" Donovan in charge, while Pittsburg has not made the killing looked for. Chicago has been slated for last place l' ih. knowing ones, and it need be no surprise to find Jim Hart's boys carrying the target to the end, as the real goods have not been secured, and without material even Tom Loftus cannot make a show. Outside the Quaker cite the National leasue ias opened to good crowds, considering the weather. New Y'ork and Pittsburg hart 10,000 each, and Boston 500 with the admlsssion at 50 cents, while Philadelphia. Brooklyn and St Louis drew between 7000 and J0 to the atoning. In l'hiladelphia the National league games are getting the small end of It from the local papers, while the American is being boomed with a vengeance. Col Rogers is a marked man and unless he suceeeds in winning the Lajoie case it will be tough sleighing this season. Boston Americans. The Boston American team went to Weehawkea today and defeated West New York, returning here late tonight. Capt Collins will give Cuppy a chance asalnst the Liajoie team tomorrow, and the boys are very anxious to win a few games before returning to Boston to open the new grounds. Qtta W. Somen is still with his Boston team, and will root hard for tl-.e men from the east tomorrow, although he is the principal backer of Connie Mack's team in this city. Mr Somers is now satisfied that the Quakers are not strong enough to make' a bid for the American pennant: In fact, he has Baltimore picked as the hard proposition, after witnessing the Orioles polish off his Bo--t 1:1 tt'sm. Mr S.::'.ir is one of the best losers 1 ever saw. and is a genuine lover of baseball. Me will sit for hours talking about players and frames of the past, and has a keen knowledge of the fine points of the game. He is satisfied that the box is the difficult problem he has to solve for his Boston team. C Young Is not in as (rood shape as Was hoped for. Cuppv at the best I enlv an occasional performer. Lewi will have a splendid chance to show what he is made cf when he joins the tenm here this week Young Mitchell is a likelv looking chao In the !. and around the ft :1. Id If orojirly cared tor he should prove a Bnd. Only Two Weak in Field. Ferris and Hemphill are the only players te fall shtrt of a high Ideal in the two games played. The latter was slow in judging the ball and Ferris show d deposition to light the fast grounders. Frent is certainly a grand fielder, while Collins an i Stahl are juat at strong as ever. Tom Dowd too Is plavin ball. Big McLean plr.ved first base in good trtyle cue game it Baltimore. He ah owed considerable weakness at the bat, jToing after haiis close to ntm. W ; l pUnty : w rk and the f roper coaching, however, the giant would make a line The Boston American team will play four games here, then go to Washington for four games After playing with Washington May T. the team will take thi tri:r ! . w York and lea v.' there at 8 on the morning of the 8th, The Philadelphia club will arrive in Boston early in the morning of the tth and vi!l meet the Boston team at the Bark Bay station on the arrival of the train just h(ore 2 There will be a band of music on hand to play "Home Sweet Home" and "A Hot Time la the Old Town." and escort lo:h teams to the ball grounds on Huntington av. Anxiety About Decision. Pros Johnson and Mr Somers were here In consultation with their legal advisers until earlv this morning, when Pres Johnson took an early train for the west. Th;. Lajoie case Is now In the hands of the judges, and the outcome means a good deal to the American league, and no one can tell what the decision may be. Should the Philadelphia club succeed In getting a permanent injunction against Lajoie. it would mean the loss to the American league of Collins. Stahl, Young and all the other players who hmtped their options with the National league. While the prevailing opinion seems to be that the Philadelphia club will fail, yet those interested are apprehensive. Hugh Duffy's friends have been observing closely the setbaek that the old captain has been getting at Detroit. Duffy Is hitting the ball all right, but his team up to date has been weak finishing, a disagreeable state of affairs and particularly in Milwaukee, where they are very poor losers. T. H.

Aoril 28 Connie Mack, manager of the Philadelphia American league club, announced to-nierht that Hugh Jennings, the famous first baseman, would play with his team this season. Jennings signed a contract with the Philadelphia club at Ithaca tonight. It will be impossible for him to report here until after June 1, owing to his contract with Cornell university to remain at Ithaca until that time. Second baseman Lock wood of Detroit has been loaned to Philadelphia and will join Slack's team tomorrow. He will play second base, Lajoie going to shortstop and Fultz to the bench. Cincinnati Defeats Chicago National in Close Game. CHICAGO, April 28 Two singles, a double and a triple, followed by Green's muff, gave the Cincinnati National league team four runs in the sixth inning. A base on balls and a balk helped them to the other two runs and the game. Phillips was very effective, and kept the hits scattered except in one inning. Both teams fieiueu well.

April 2S In the presence of 16.5J0 spectators the American league champions gave Cleveland a thorough drubhirrg this afternoon, pounding Haker all over the lot.

Somerville high bids fair to give the teams in the senior interscholastic league a good rub for championship honors, as Capt Jones has a number of candidates trylrnz for positions, and they are all clever ball players. Jones makes an Ideal leader and he is a splendid all-round player. He is a hard hitter and fields the ball cleanly. The practice of the interscholastic crews was interferred with a great deal during the week on account of the rain, winds and eomicquent rough water. Coaches Glendon and Wrny are somewhat discouraged over the showing of the schools this season. The Interscholastic tennis tournament, under the auspices of the Harvard university tennis association, which was postponed from Saturday on account of the wet courts, wifi be held next Saturday on Jarvls field. The bovs will po into the competition with only a few weeks' training. Wright of Hopk'nson school, the present champion has entered, and it is expected that he will win again unless a dark horse should he developed. Newton high school has 1G entries, and as there are several crack players attending the school, indications now point favorably to the point banner going to Newton. bh po a 2 0 0 1 I tl Ret Cf...

McCarthy of the A. F. of L. Has Been Summoned. Firms Strongly in Favor of Taking Drastic Steps. GLOUCESTER. April 28 The stone workers' union of cape Ann met this afternoon at Finn hall, Lanesvllle, to hear the report of its committee appointed to interview the officials of the Rockport granite company in relation to complying with the demands presented In its bill of April 1. and to determine whether the men should be ordered out on strike May L For three and one-half hours the matter was discussed somewhat earnestly, but withal good naturedly. and it was finally voted to adhere to the original intention to demand the terms of the bill of April 1, the companies being given until May 1 to answer. This does not mean a strike right away at least, the disposition of the meeting being to keep at work pending a settlement by less drastic means if possible. It was voted to summon tho state representative Of the American Federation bf Labor, Frank H. McCarthy of Boston, to Lanesville tomorrow for a conference in regard to future action. The men say they will be guided largely by McCarthy's advice. If he says strike, then strike it will be. The majority evidently favor strike. In the discussion this afternoon there was an undercurrent of distrust of the officials of the Rockport gianite company. Whether rightfully or wrongfully, the men seem to think that they may be "bluffing" in their answer, which was virtually a refusal to grant the men's demands. The blacksmiths, who get $2.50 per day, were the only ones who did not favor a strike if their demands were not complied with, but they were greatly outnumbered. The offer of the Rockport granite company, as reported at the meeting, was to sign the bill as presented for a term of two years only, with the right to abrogate It after February. 1903. This caused much dissatisfaction among the men. 1 Then again the company made a t minor concession in regard to Philadelphia paving blocks, for which, it la claimed, there is little demand. Tho rate now paid for cutting Philadelphia paving is $17 per 1000. Another demand was that the men should be paid weekly by the companies. The Rockport granite company already does this. The other companies still hold to the monthly payment system. Then, again, there is a demand that green men be- paid at least .14 cents per hovr for handling grout. At present these employes are paid nine cents per hour. Two of the companies, the Pigeon Hill granite company and William R. Cheves. refuse the demands of the men in toto, although Mr Cheves says he is willing to raise the wages ot some of his lowest paid employes. At the meeting this afternoon a no ticeable and significant thing was the attitude of the Finns, who comprise the greater portion of the quarry workers. These Finns were among the most em phatic and pronounced In their determination to strike for higher pay. The proceedings were transacted for their benefit, and they displayed the greatest interest in the outcome. It was the determined attitude of these Finns in driving off the Italians imported to take their places during the historic strike of two years ago which won that struggle. They manifest the sa,me temper today. However, there is evidently a profound desire on the part of the men as a whole to avoid a rtrtk? it possible. If a strike comes it will be as a last resort.

Volumes Sought After by Connoisseur All Over the Countrv. The most extraordinary book sala which ever occurred In the Unitef States was that which occurred last Week ih Boston. It was the sale of the library of the lato Frederick W. French, a Boston gentleman of no extraordinary pretensions In a literary way. In fact, he never took any interest In literature until late in lift. Ba was a business man, interested in tha drug business, and he had no particular prtullections for anything In literature. He did happen to become Interested in the stage, and the result was a deslra to accumulate some of the literature of the stage. This led to other things, ant finally he became a "book crank." Now, this docs not mean a literary crank. A book crank Is one thing, and a literary crank another. This man through his business acumen understood the commercial value of books. He also understood their literary value, and hj happened to be one of those men who hao a nice sense of literary values. He bought first editions and limited editions, and they were an investment; on the one hand, while they satisfied hia literal y desire on the other. Tho sale the past week demonstrate! the fact that French was not alone; that there were people who thought and felt exactly as he did. He loved literature In a way, but he also had an ap- Sreclatlon of business, which led him to judicious expenditure of the funds which he desired to Invest in books. He simply travelled along the lines which are plainly marked to the book collectors. He bought first edition-, limited editions and rare prints, whi. h possessed a value because of scarcity and workmanship aside from the naern literary value. The "bookworm" understands this value Instinctively, and that is why Air French's library was well known and why tha books In his library brought such extraordinary prices. AGAINST THE EMPLOYES.

HALIFAX, N S, April 28 The first case of arbitration under the provincial act has resulted against the employes. The text of the arbitrators' decision on the 'claim of the Cape Breton coal miners for an increase of wages has been published and confirms previous reports that the board found that the profits of the Dominion coal company for the past year would not warrant granting- the additional pay asked by the men. While local prices for coal were lush the comoany had long contracts to fill at much lower prices. The arbitrators found, however, that If the company's profits were augmented by better business in the current year the miners' claims ought to be considered. Wages paid In Cape Breton were declared to compare favorably with other collieries. JAMES DOUGLAS REID DEAD. Father of the Telegraph" Passes Away in New York-Andrew Carnegie Was His Messenger Boy. NEW YORK. April 28 James Douglas Reid. known to telegraphers throughout the country as "the rather of the tele graph," died today at his residence In his city. He had been 111 for many weeks. James Douglas Reid was born atEdin- burg, Scot, March 22, 1819. and came to America In 1834.

Buffalo Detroit. Cincinnati. St Louis and New Orleans, the most extensive series projected at that time. Becoming acquainted with Prof S K1 B. Morse, a mutual attachment sprang up between them, which led to Mr Reid's appointment as suneri of th Magnetic telegraph company a line extending from New York to Wash- ngion, at me same time retaining his uookuvb wiiu ine Atlantic & Ohio company. He entered the service of the Western Union telegraph company in 185C, wherein he remained until 1889, when he was appointed U S consul at Dunfermline Scot, through the influence of Andrew Carnegie, who as a boy had served as messenger and telegraph operator under Mr Reid at Pittsburg. He relinquished this office in 1897. 1 a The statue of Prof Morse In Central park, this city, was erected by the telegraph fraternity through the efforts of Mr Reld. m i a a aSa i . . .

He had been a competitor In the "rare book" market for years and the men who are Interested in such things knew this. Consequently when his llbrarv was put ud for sale all the Drominent book collectors In the countrv rcrrn Interested and flocked toward Boston. The result was fhe greatest book sala ever known in this country. Less than 2000 volumes brought over $65,000. and it Is safe to say that these did not coat rhe owner $25,000. It only goes to show that certain books are (rood oronerty especially limited editions. Air French was not a literary man in the ordinary sense. He developed an appreciation for rare books. He bought them. Other people have developed the same mania, and that is why his library sold at such extraordinary figures. It was the record sale of recent years. Captain William H. Preacott Dead.
