EXCELLENT PAPERS WERE REM
The annual meeting of the Pennsyl
vania State league of base ball clubs
was held at the Forest house yesterday
The meeting brought together all the
men who are financially interested in
the success of the state lnagn. From
the expressions of tho base bail men
yesterday, the local cranks will be
treated to soma remarkably line base
halt games during the coining season.
There will bo plenty of young players
who can giva points to tho worn out
men of the Eastern league about how
to handle a grounder, or slide to abase.
There will lie no lack of ginger in the
baseball games that will be seen iu
this city next summer.
Those present at yesterday's meeting
wore Secretary-Treasurer Henry J.
Diddlebock, of Philadelphia; John J.
Hanton, Allen town; E. K Meyers,
Harrisburg; William R. Parks, Eiston;
W. A. Whitman, Beading; J. C. Mish
ler, A. T. Beutley and Edward T.
Dhrew, of Raadiug: Alex Dunn, jr.,
W. A. St. John and Martin Swift, of
ISC ROTARY. P'.DDLKBoeiC THANKED.
The first Insiuess that was done at
the meeting was the reading uf Secre
tary Diddlebock's annual report, it
allowed that the Stale league was in
first class financial condition some
thing unheard of before in the history
of baseball in this state. The secre
tary was tendered a vote of thanks for
his Wise and efficient mauugemmt of
"1 K. Meyers, of Harri9burg, was re
elected president of the leairue and
Henry H. Diddbjbock, of the Phila
delphia Inquirer, was re-elected secre
tary and treasurer.
The board of directors will bs com
posed of representative! of Scranton,
Eiston, Reading and Altoonv
The schedule committee was named
as follows: Scranton, Allentown,
Altoona and Reading.
The A. T. Reach ball was adopted
as the official ball of the league.
Secretary Diddlebock announced that
he had made application to President
N. E Young, of the National league,
for protection under the national
agreement. Mr. Y ting replied that
he bad placed the State league under
protection in Class B. which does not
a thorize clubs to reserve players from
season to season. Tiio sentiment of
most of the clubs was that the rituto
leaguo should res rve its. players, as is
done by the National and Eastern
THEY'RE AFTEIt WIT.KEVH ARIIK.
Last season tiie state league was com
posed of Scranton, Allentown, Beaton,
Altoona, Harrisburg, Job.n3town Bead
ing au I York. Tiie latt3r city will b
dropped, Applications for member
ship have beeu received from li izle
ton. Williamsport and Pottsville.
The management of the Wilkes Btvre
club has announced in favor of Eastern
League representation. It is a well
known fact, patent to everyone who is
at all acquainted with base ball mat
ters, that Wilkea-Barre wilhout Scran
ton oanOOt make money. This h-.u
boen demonstrated in past seasons. On
the contrary. Scranton made mony in
b:tse ball last season, and in a different
league from Wilues-Birre. But if
Wilkes-B-trre was a member of tl,e
Sute league it would mean greatly in
creased revenues for both clubs
The State league people will go to
Wilkes Barre to.lay and try and plaeo
a club there. There is a very general
sentiment in favor of State tongue
membership at Luzerne's county seat,
nid there is good reason to believe that
Wilkes-Barre and Scranton will play
together during the coming season.
The evening session was devoted
principally to a discussion of the right
of cinbs to sign men who played with
State League clubs last s-ason. The
Reading and Scranton clubs want
Massey, who played with both these
clubs last season. Manager Swift has
signed him for this season, but Maua
ger Whitman alio claims his
scrvicei. In the future clubs will
have the right to sign all their last
S'lason's players, and no other clubs
will be allowed to interfere with such
players., This is the substance o fa reso
lution adopted ut the meeting last
The league voted for protection un
der clause B of the national agreeiu rata
This guarantees protection to all Slate
league clubs during the playiutr sea
son, but does not allow a club tho
privilege to reserve its players from
season to season.
There is atu considerable busiuoss to
be transacted and another meeting will
be held this morning, when the differ
out clnbs will put in their claims for
nil players they desire wuo were with
Stat league clubs last season.
After the meoting last evening the
directors of the Scranton tendered a
very enj yable dinner to the visiting
base ball men.

aroused Ferrer to action for he whipped
out his revo'ver, fired four shots at Mr.
Burke and then turned and ran toward
Lackawanna avsuue. After tnking a
few steps he fell, cutting his left eye
brow, but he was up in an instant and
running at th top of his sp-ed.
Frank Robling, jr , nnd James Moir,

of the car, but as soon as Ferrer turned
