In a recent interview President Byrne vouchsafed the statement that, while the New York people wore doing nil the preliminary shoutimr, Brooklyn was going quietly nlonf petting together a team that would mako a good sbowmp; in the league pennant race, ltecont developments tend to boar out this assertion, and Manager Foutz, in his modest way, desires tho pub lio to remember that while the New Yorkers have been strengthening their team tho local management has not been at all backward in this respect. To an Eagle reporter Manager Foutz said to day: "The Brookiyns will be in tho race thU year. While are out for the ponnant I might Btate that any club thnt lands among the first six is doing welL I don't want to say that we are any better than the other teams in the leafrue, but I am sure we are just as stroos ns New York in every respect, except possibly base running.

In Kennedy, Stein and Daub wo havo a trio of twlrlers that are equal to Russia, Meakira and German, While Sharrott is every bit as good as Westervelt. Korwan, too, may prove a winner. Behind the tat we are well supplied with Kins low, Dalley and LaChance; "Our infield is strong and our outflold cannot be improved upon. In batting I think wo are equal to the Gotbamites, while we are better fielders, as past records show." Speaking about his clans for the coming osmpaign, Captain Foutz said: "You will probably havo noticed that the team has plenty of ginger and is putting up some excellent team work. Kick? Oh, yes; wo all do a little kicking when necessary, but we'll keep within the limit, of course.

It pays in the lonir run to assert your riKhts, but of course there is a limit which oujrbt not to be overstepped. It all depends on the "In the opening game," continued Foutz. "wo shall have oat our strongest nine, with Ither Stein or Kennedy in the box. We hope to beat the Bostons; in fact, I think wo will. Captain Nash hasn't the nine he started out with a year ago, but tho new material under him may pan out weiL" A comparison between tho records of the Brooklyn and New York teams shows that the Giants are ahead in batting and base running, but Foutz's men can field all around the players across the bridge.

154 157 Brooklyn loses three trioks on this band. A surprising number of riders and driver sot the raw winds and somber skies of yesterday at naught and went down tha road with their horses and rigs. Tho faot of it being tho 8th of April, when driving Is seasonable, led many to make thoir plans on Saturday for a spin along the boulevard on Sunday, and when the day broko ohlll nnd stormy the men of sporting blood did hoi give up. Thoy had mado up their minds that It was time for driving and if tlie weathor was inauspicious, why, so much the worse for the weather. A few wrapped in great coats wont down in the morning, but it was not until 3 o'clock In the afternoon that the string beean to move through tho park and the tree lined avenue leading to the ocean.

Women wero not plentiful in tho turnouts, but there wore some and as they got pretty well chilled every mile or two they went It was a good day for the hotels. It was a gray day and the road was heavy, but the rainfall had not been sufficient to loavo many pools and the mud did not fly much. Few wont all the way to the island and for tho most part the mon gathered at Bader's and Brown's or other hostelrio and chatted about horses nnd other topics which llnd favor with men gossips. Frank Beard was down In the morning with his bays in tandem. His brother and a friend accompanied him and in the afternoon the brother was down with a slnirle.

A party of riars found diversion about noon In the yard back of George Bader's by jumping their animals over an Improvised hurdle. Henry T. Boody also was out with a tandem. Major P. H.

McNulty had his bays with thoir brass mounted harness hitched to a two seater nnd Millard Smith's team with similar rig made a twin turnout whon thoy came up together in tho ovonlng. William Strohmeyer drove Bags, who does not in any way suggest his name, to a road wagon, and keeping company with him were IK Marks, with the pair he has dubbed Brandy nnd Soda, and Herman Oisgood with Dan S.

I made up my mind to catch that rat and set a trap for him. Sure onough, the next night there was Mr. Rat jumping around that trap as large as life.

It had degenerated into a nuisance and players who wero utterly incapablo of making it in a hundred rears wore out pitchers by fonllng the ball so msny times iu succession that the man in tho box ws finally tuckered out. I do not think it advisable for tho umpire at all times to stand behind the plate. Thero nre oceasions when he should run out into the diamond. I really dou't think an umpire is harder on pitcher whon he is back of him, although the impression provails that such is the case. Harry Wright will havo charge of tho umpires this year nnd I look for an improvement in thoir work.

Heaven knows they wero bad enough last year. Tho old diamond was good enough und there was no use in adopting a new one. The old one was pluin; tho new is calculated to mix up amateurs. Perhaps that is what it was adopted for." Rnsc E2ii.ll TVolcn. Ths wook's exhibition games at Eastern park includ practice matches with tho Poly's mn to day, followed by the Eastern league team of Wllkesbarro on Tuesday and Wednesday and tho Binghamton team on Thursday, women's day, and Friday, ending with tho grand match of tho week on Saturday, the contest with the Ynltt university team, which will call for the Brooklyn team's best efforts, as tho Yale nine defeated the Boston champions last Friday and on Saturday had a tie gamo with thorn.

These college games, and even those with the academy nines, nre worth twice as mucn to tlio Brookiyns for real good practice as those with the semi professional teams, especially in rosjnrd to drawing good "gates." Singularly onough the only fielding errors charged to the two teams in Saturday's contest at Eastern park were made by the two third basemen and the two catchers and they were few. Baubis showing fine command of the ball and marked strategic skill in his delivery this season. He promises to excel In tho position.

The Brooklyn team, when all of tho regular players shall have got into good form for their league work, will be seen to bo tho best ths club hns ever placed In tho field. It is to be hoped, however, that Captnin Foutz will not opn the league season by sending his team in ll'rst at tho bat, as he has done in the exhibition campaign. He ought nlso to insist upon his batsmen getting out of the rut of fnclng for left field, as thoy do. instead of for ridht Held hits. The Fnrrell deal is at last ended, and he virtually accepted New York's terms on Saturday, though he did not sign until to day.

The club has had llrst cla9S advertising out of the deal, as also has Farrell. The Now York team is now complete. The Chicago lieenvd. In commenting upon tho abolition of the trapped ily ball rule, has this to Bay on the subject: Thero is something bettor that the crowds like to neo in preference to cood batting, and that is line fieldins roars. was at tho prime ot popularity when small scores were common.

Whenever the longue seeks to curtail possibilities of tine fielding in order to swell tho run column, it makes a serious mistako. Snectators at a cauie will carry awav the memory of a brilliant play, but will soon forest, tho fact that thero wero good liattinc and plenty of rnus. A few years ago Pittsbure and Indianapolis played a particularly one sided and stupid game except fir one feat by Dunlap. who made a particularly brilliant catch. After tho gamo a gentleman who had boen a spootator said: "There wasn't much of a contest about it.

but I would rather see a catch like that which Dunlao made a dozen close games." It is said that McPhee saved three cames for Cincinnati last year by moans of trapping flies. But that is one of the very reasons why McPheo is popular in Cincinnati and why hundreds of people become interested in tho srame. Curtail all chances of doinc anything but niechniiicn.1 work ami baseball will soon bo divested of half its interest." Chadwick. Clindtvlck Again an Editor.

It proved to be tha life just suited to a jolly dog. A bit of tho Irish, terrier in Owney's skyo blood has helped him to appreoiato mora thoroughly the innumerable funny things he has seen during his travels ot the past four years. Nearly every place he stopped Owney received an additional tag, until now he wears a big bunch. When he jogs along they jingle lika the bells on a junk wagon. An extra harness was constructed by some friend, who saw that kindness would gradually choke the dog unless the extra weight could be attached to his baok.

These tags bear various inscriptions ot the plaoos where Owney has been entertained, and by whom. At the Seattle post office the, local government post, after wasting two pada of paper, composed the following, which Is now ongraved on plate fastened to Ownoy'a collar: "I Kuetfs I am an innoce nt abroad, for I travel through thick and thin, but I meet with kindly treatment and like to be takon in." The people at Spokane, Washington, had aa idea that Owuoy would be around to see Post, master Sullivan in a year or two. Underneath the name of their town they put 'Whore Bonds Sell Above Par, October 27, 1803. The souvenir spocn craze was on whea Owney struck Fort Wayne. The post master ot that place ongraved the date of Owney's visit, March 27, 1839.

on the back of a pewter spoon, which is now one of the most attractive ornaments in the bunch. Grant Hiale man of Waverly, and Honry Dean, of Hlldretb street, Draout, have thoir names on small brass tags. A wag from somewhere marked a piece of nickel, "The Chilian, puzzle, remove tho ring and put it on again." That man wanted to play a practical joko on a stranger unacquainted with Owney's habits. Owney accepts all the medals his friends award bim, but no one dare take them off. He is always glad to turn over on bis back to permit an inspection of his trophies, but when a stranger's hand gets near the buckle Owney growls.

At St. Louis the flro department learned of Owney's arrival and insisted upon keeping him for one night. In the course of his wanderings Owney has visited Mitchell, 111., twioe. Two dog tax tags gwe him tha freedom of the town both times. At tho eoa vontlon of the Iowa Bankers' association, held nt Council Bluffs, on May 23 and 24, 1893, Owney was the honored guest.

A handsome) medal commemorates the event. Among others who havo cultivated 'the society of the jolly terrier ore the Knights of Pythias, the Toledo produce exchange, a well known brewery and a number of hospitable individuals. One tog stntes that William F. Maybaum of the Brooklyn general post office was invited by Owney. No date is given.

The hands for ono section wero dealt in advance and put upon Kalamazoo trays numbered 1 to 25. Exact duplicates of theso hands wero then made upon a second set of trays and the hands wero recorded. Shortly before the time set for play to bogin the dealers' hand or ono set of boards was shuffled and a non participant drew a card at random which was mado the trump for that deal, and the same card was turned on the corresponding board, henoo It was an absolute impossibility for any ono to have any knowledge of tho bands. Tho courtesy betweon the teams was very marked, and many instances during the match gave proof of the good will and cordiality between the playors of the two cltlos. There is no code of laws governing duplicate whist.

One was proposed at the third American whist congress, but not adopted, Tho one then proposed has, hswever, been followed very generally. One of Its provisions is that each card whan played mast Dn placed directly on top of the last oard previously turned down. It is the custom among the Philadelphia playors to iceop tally of the tricks takon by placing tho card of a trick won by their side at right anetles to the enrd of a trick won by their adversaries. There should be no objection to this, as it enables each player to keep count and is a oheck agr.inst errors in the score which are always liable to oocur. Objection to it waa made in the recent tournament of tha Intor club Whist league, and its practice horo was abandoned.

The Brooklyn players are acoustomed to taking a chip for oach trick and this should always be Insisted upon. It Is a physical act visible to all and less likely to lead to mistakes. Bat the placing of tho cards in a particular way should be permitted, as It becomes purely moebanlaal and the result is that all four players act as scorers and tho possibility of an error in the score is reduced to a minimum. It was announced from the platform before play began that thero was no objection on the part ot Brooklyn to the practice and it was generally followed by their Philadelphia guests. One special Instance of courtesy on the part of a Philadolphian occurred, when an adversary trumped a plain suit led under the impression thnt the trump card turned was the original lead, nnd was allowed to correct his error without jpenalty.

Equal courtesy was shown by the Brooklyn players. At one table a Philadel phian was seen to turn up an adversary's card after the cards of tnat trick bad all been turned and play hnd been made to the following trlek. No penalty was exacted, although it Is directly contrary to law. Whon the Brooklyn player's attention was oalled to it he said that it had boon done right along, but he did not propose to stop it olnim the penalty for it. Tno most striking instance of courtesy occurred the day after the game whon the presidents of ths Philadelphia and Brooklya Whist clubs, under whose auspices the mateh was codduoted, met for the purpose of officially comparing scores and deciding the result.

At oae table hand No. 13 was snored Brooklyn, North and South, Philadelphia.East and West, 5. One of tho Philadelphia team thought from the composition of the hand that he must havo taken more than five tricks and so reported to the presldauts. The score cards of beth sides agreed. In examining this band it was foand that the totals for North and South at tho other forty nine tables woe 280, an average of 4 84 49, and for East and West 407, an average of 8 15 49.

Hence there was a basis far thinking that possibly this particular score was reversed, in whioh case the matoh would have proved a tia. All that was asked was that the matter be called to tho attention oi the Brooklyn players to ascertain if they could remember ths play of tha hand, it bslng a certainty that the Brooklyn men would instantly admit an error if there was ono, otherwise tho score should bo aoeeptad aa oorrect. Speaking of this the Philadelphia Ledger says: On the face of the returns the tznmo resulted in a victory for Brooklyn. The soore of fine hand at one of the tables, however, was obviously erroneously entered as eight for Brooklyn and five for Philadelphia, whereas it should nave been the reverse. That this is the case can be proven by the recollection of the players and the composition of tho hand, it being impossible not co make more than five tricks out of the Philadelphia end of it.

The average of the hand at tho other tables was eittht and one half, and in no case waB less than seven made with It. Whether the mistake will be oorrected. however, is very doubtful. Thero ore many who believe that when the score cards are handed in that should preolude any further adjustment or trointr behind the returns, nnd there but little disposition in Philadelphia to claim the game aa a tie. There can be no doubt that each side took exactly the same number of tricks, but as a Philadelphia pair mado a mistake in entering the score and did not discover it until after tho sooro cards were banded in.

the game may. without protest, be counted as a 3 trick victory for Brooklyn. Investigation shows that the score was not erroneously entered and the statements and reoollections of the players go to prove it. It is possible for East and West to mako but 5 tricks, as will be shown when the hand is published, hence there is no doubt that each side did not take exactly the same number of tricks. At no time did Philadelphia make any claim.

It simply called attention to possible error. The following manly letter from Dr. Joseph S. NoU states the exact facts: Philadelphia. April 6.

1S94. Dear sir I notice iu to day's Ledger an article from a Brooklyn paper in reference to tho whist match in which it is Btated that the Philadel phians claimed tho game for certain reasons and 1 desire that this statement be ofnoially corrected, as there has been no claim or protect officially mndo other than my statement to you when in Brooklyn, which was that unless all parties unanimously agreed that tho hand had been scored wrong, the score must sta nd. as it would moke a bad precedent to eo behind the returns. I have no reason to change the position I havo taken in roferenoe to tho matter. Please be kind enough to quote mo in this as voicing the stiments of tho Rentlomon in c'uar'je.

(Jluhs, 10, 9. Diamonds, 10. The fourth series of games in ths hand ball tournament now in progress in tho gymnasium of tno association was played yesterday before a good audience. Mclneraey and Corbett were the first to occupy tho oourt, their opponents being Lawler and Burgees. The former team played a swift up hill game, and put is curves on the bottom trick that were simply invinoi ble.

The three games were run off in quick order, Melnerney and Corbevt capturing all of them. The score at ths close stood: Melnerney and Corbett ....21 21 21 Lawler and, Burgeas 12 17 12 Stackpole and Murphy took another leap In the race yesterday by getting three straight games from Smith and Woods. The juniors played with all the strength and skill they could command, but their opponents' play at tne wall proved too much for them. Smith did some Very olever work In returning the ball from long distances. The score was as follows: Stuckpolo and Murphy 21 21 21 Smith and Woods 8 11 15 In the third game it was announced that Mr.

McGuinness was unable to play, and by arrangement with tho tournamsnt committee, Hal lay, his partner, met Waters, the stronger member of the rival team. Their games were very interesting, abounding in many excellent plays and not a few surprises.

It is said of hiru. however, that in throwing across the diamond he is the equal of Hash of Boston. At present, tnough, he is not meeting espectations. Want ef practice and nervousness consequent upon a desire to do his best, are givn as the cause of his poor showing. Treadway has already become popular with the eranits by his earnest earnest work and his i'ollying ways.

His ac tions are similar to Arlia atham's, while somo of his tricks make the cranks loag for the season to open. It is Fancy Bill Kennedy now, as tho clever twirler has developed unlooked for fastidious ideas. It will bo remembered that last year Kennedy and Stein had a bet of a silk tilo on their batting averages, which the Bellalre lad won easily. He had been on the grounds ten minutes when he offered to bet Stein a pair of $8 patent leather shoes on their batting powers this year. He calmly Informed Stein that he was in need of the shoes in order to offset that silk tile and the umbrella presented him by Jake Kilrain and that Stein might as well pay up right off.

Needless to say, Stein refused te accede to this one sided request nnd negotiations are off for tho present. Playing under conditions like those of Saturday would soon put a team on the sick list. Tom Burns broke training, so far as total ab stinenae was conoernod, for the 8r3t time in three months ana suvonteen days, he told the Eagle reporter, but he did it for medicinal purposes only. He asserted thnt a saint would break the pledge if ha had to play ball in a snow storm liKe that of lost Saturday. Mcwi of tlio SMayers.

Direetor Talcett of tho New York elubiays he Will bet 500 to siiOO that Ward's men will beat out theBrooklyn team in the championship race.

lie played second base tho other day and made 3 runs, 2 hits and accepted 6 chances without an error. MoTammnny of old Brooklyn association lame is playing goed ball for the Indianapolis team. "With the retirement of Gaffney, Lyneh is tho veteran of the league staff of umpires. Manager Hanion is playing McGraw at third base and Bonner at eriort stop. It is safe to predict that McGraw will play bettor at third than at short field.

His chief fault h.ts been slowness in judging inllaid hits, nnd this will not be so apparent nt third, because he hns less ground to cover than at short. His throwing is strong und accurate. The great game of tho exhibition season was played at St. Louis last Tuesday, when the SL Louis, Hawley pitching, beat the Kansas Citys 1 to 0. Only one of the visitors saw third base.

CaMahan, the new pitcner secured by the Philadelphia club, seems to be a coiner. He has so far done the bost pitching for that club in tho exhibition gnmos. Taylor, tho Staten Island pitcner, is also showing up in good form. Captain Anson of the Cliicago. lub is not quite ploased with the changes in tho rules regarding the trap bull.

He fays: "I wanted the bunt entirely abolished. Instead it was so penalized that the pitcher will in a measure get what is his due. If the batter liite the ball foul it will be called a strike, which is right and proper. The pitoiior put? tho ball over the plato and ought to have the credit for it. Thut is not so good as cutting it out altogether, but it answers the purpose admirably.

The rule ought certainly to increase tho efficacy of the pitcher, and thin in itseil will mano the game more interesting. I think that tho league made a mistake in burring tho trapped ball. There are only a few men who are cupa ble of making the play. It will cut out oue of the most interesting fcuturea of tho game and it is to be regrattecl that it hud to go. Tho uncertainties of the came ire the very pointB that make it so interesting.

Take away all of tint uncertain features and the game suddenly loses favor. It was agreed that the reason the league abolished the trap was to prevent a possible double or triple play. That is just tho reason why it should havo been retained. Say that tho bases are full when a btti comes up. A hit means one, if not two runs.

Suppose that the batter pops up an infield fly which a heady plater traps. At least one, i( not two, men will be out. The base runners, not having seen the piny made often, may become confused, and it is then that head work on the ball field will count. The play lias excited the crowd and tho fans don't know how it is all going to turn out. That to them is thu most exciting period in the gnmn.

That play will be talked about for woeks afterward. Now a play that is a novelty because of extreme rareness has been dropped just to prevent a man with brains from limiting star play. I am iu iaror Of restoring the trap to favor. People do not care so much to see runs made as they do to witness phenomenal plays, daring base running, eir eu CRtches and the liKe. Of coarse, they want til h.ome club to land eaaugh runs to win tho Games.

At that very moment I could have given him a good punch on tho nose. Jackson will do hm as sure as gospel if they ever meot, and I think tho business will be better benefited if such a thing happens. Of course, I'm still a friend of Corbett, boeause he waB so polite to me. Can't you understand?" In his bout with Bull McCarthy Saturday night, which was as good us any seen, Abbott satisfied most of the spectators that he was the better man, and he cortoluly was in better condition when the sixth round ended and the refereo declared it a draw. Tho trouble was that Abbott figured out an easier victory than was possible and did not cut himself loose till the third round.

Then ho got a nasty upper cut on the eye which worried him considerably during the rest of tn encounter, it wus n. big disappointment to him not to get tho decision, und ho could not refrain from btepplng back in the ring and remarking, with his pronounced Cockney accent, that though he seemed to be getting a bit the worst of things it might interest the public to know that ho had become an American citiznu.

Strubbe Shea Bond Hanker McEv oy Toam scheme has been devised to remedy this and next season it is proposed to play another home nnd home match on a still larger scale. The selection of the Brooklyn contingent was a difficult task owing to tbo fact that more playors were available than could participate.

ConsiUontly tho quota of nil the clubs was reduced and it was left to the representative of each club to designnto the individuals who should represent it and tho list was submitted to nnd onrefully gono over by each of them. Tho closeness of this match is marvelous as tha difference was less than ono tenth in 2,700. The Philadelphia players have devised a new systam whioh was extensively followed in this match and they olaira that it is an improvement upon existing methods, and is as follows: is in plain saits L'if. of act or queen announces weakness in trurnns (except lead of nee iollowi by queen or jack which irives no information as to trumps.) Lead of king or jack announces strength in trumps. (It follows that with ace load ace when weak in trumps and small card whon strong.) Aunounciuc strength in trumps, with honor turned to right is cali.

Second hand Play the hieher of kin; queen with or without others and ot qnoen. jack with or without another in both trumps an 1 plain suits. Fourth hand Win trick with king holdiutr queen. Discarding Always discard from weakness. Plain suit echo Slinws strength in that suit, whether made in di carding or in following.

Trump echo An echo on the adversary's lead nf trumps indicates only two trumps second hand, iimr11 than two trutiin i fourth hand. Most of these are radical departures from the geuurally accepted theories aud if the discard is invariably to bo from weakness it may at times luraish information of great valuo to the adversaries. It is also conceivable that in many cases tho imparting of exact iaformution as to length in trumps may prove exceedingly ad antneoous to the trump leader. CtHPOBSIA'S RKLAT RIC1CLE RACK.
