Id New Positions the Team Played
Fine Game But Couldn't Hit Mason.
Lath-Am at Third.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
' Syracuse, N. Y., May 22. The Stars
won their game from Scranton today on
Its merits. Mason scored his fifth
straight win and the team behind him
played with more confidence than they
show behind Whitehlll and Delaney.
That two hits were made by the win
tiers in the ninth was owing to the re
tirement of Catcher Hess, Mason fear
ing to throw hard to Barber, an ama
teur, who took Hess' place. It Is no dis
credit to the losers to be held down by
Mason as five hits Is the highest made
off htm In any game this season.
Horner was the only Scranton man
to reach third In the game today. Only
four reached second. Appreciating
how Invincible he was, the Serantons
; worked hard for bases on balls and got
them Ave times.
Brown was an easier mark for the
Stars than any pitcher who has faced
them before on the home grounds this
season. He worked hard until the fifth
Inning when discouraged because the
game was already lost, he tossed the
ball over for the Stars to hit.
The Serantons were made over con-
Biunuuiy in luuuy s game.

) Arlle Latham made fits first appear
ance on third and played a good game.
His error was a wild throw to first
which a longer man than Horner would
have got and he made two brilliant
. stops. Hutchinson played a hard.

Tom Power was on the Scranton

The race was evened up a little yes
terday, the three tail-enders winning
and the two leaders losing. It was a
day of surprises, a fact which has fea
tured several recent days. t,ouisviue
won another exciting game from Balti
more by hard hitting at the right time.
Hill was struck on the ankle ana ais-
abled by Hoffer's .iner in the eighth, the
ball bounding to the rlglit new rence.
McQarr's fumble of Duffy's short hit in
the first Inning was responsible for the
winning lead secured by Boston over
Cleveland. By good team work and
timely batting the Browns beat the
Brooklyns. "Dad" Clarke stopped the
Reds' winning streak, tney only secur
ing five hits. Hawley indulged In an
other one of iiis unaccountable wild
spells In the ninth Inning, and after
Philadelphia had overcome a gooa leaa
and had enough runs left to win,
Hughey was substituted. It was Haw
ley's fifth straight defeat, and enabled
Philadelphia to break a long losing
streak. Taylor was very wild In the
first inning, but recovered himself af
ter that and pitched good ball.

BASE BALL GOSSIP.
Tlinnms R. Brooks, one of the Scran
ton club owners, returned yesterday
morning from his two days' stay with
the team In Buffalo. In discussing lo
cal bnse ball matters, he said:
"I have been told that we are accused
of signing Arlle Latham as a drawing
card. Well, he will draw, but if It was
worth a hundred an hour we never
would have negotiated with him if he
wasn't what we think he Is, a strength
ening player. He fielded well for Cin
cinnati Inst year, hit .310 per cent, and
made 93 runs nnd stole 45 bases in 110
games. That looks as though he played
ball, don't It?
"Rochester cannot Interfere with us
In the Harper matter. Harper Is
Brooklyn's property, and Is loaned to
us. A Natlonnl league club can do as
It pleases with a player, if he consents
to the arrangement, so long as that
player beyongs to the club. If Harper
had been released by Brooklyn, then
Rochester would have first call on him.
There Is no rule or part of a rule to
show that a National league club can
not place its players where It pleases
in a minor league. When Harper Is no
longer on the Brooklyn list, then Roch
ester has a license to object, but not

CURIOUS QUAKER TEAM.
Bat Like Fiends But Have Always
Proved a Disappointment About
Philadelphia's base ball team Is a
great puxzle to Its patrons and to the
students of the game at large. It has
been taking part In the Aatlonal
League championship contests for more
than a dozen years, and, though sev
eral times it has looked like a winning
factor, the pennant has yet to liy
above Its grounds. The Phillies are a
peculiar set of players. They look
dangerous at some points or tne bcs
son everv vear. but never enrry out
their bluff. Last season they camo with
rush at the end. Seven weeks prior
to the close of the race they occupied
ninth place. Four weeks Inter they
had Jumped Into third position, where
they remained anchored, says u. p.
This club has up to the present time
started poorly, and made a great spurt
some time during the season a spurt
which, however did not last long
enough to take It to the front, and
whenever these winning streaks pos-
sessed it that familiar cry went up all
along the line, "Look out for the
Phillies." This year the warning
comes at the very start. For the first
time In the history of the club Its team
Is playing winning ball during the
opening weeks of the season, and or
dinarily Its friends would have high
hopes of final success. But the well es
tablished precedent that a let down
must come some time during the race
gives Its most sanguine friends a feel
ing of doubt. One conservative Quaker
rooter remarked In my presence re
cently, "Yes, they look like winners
now, but they'll land In their favorite
position at third place."
The team is undoubtedly the heaviest
batting collection of players ever seen
together, nnd I do not except the fam
ous Detroit aggregation of the eighties.
Of the first seven batsmen In the league
last year five belonged to this team,
and three more came within the .300
class. It is In this that the team has
excelled. Orth wns added to the old
corps Inst fall and helped to make that
rush during the months of August and
September, but this Fprlng he has not
been so effective. Should he fall to
reach expectations, the club will prob
ably flounder along once more under
that discouraging handicap.
Delehanty. Thompson. Brouthers,
Clements, Cross and Hnllman make an
array of butsmen who when lined up
before a pitcher causes him to feel that
life after all is a mighty serious thing.
That big fellow, Delehanty, I consider
the best batsman In the country. While
he has never led the league, he keeps
hovering around the top year after
year, and has twice fetched up a close
second. Delehanty is a model athlete
and an Ideal bnll player In all polntH
of the game. Should any club be of
fered Its pick of all the outfielders play
ing ball, every one of them, perhaps,
would select Del.

BASE BALL ETIQUETTE.
Code of Rules Designed to Elevate
the National tiniiic.
While many of those points of rec
ognized and Imperative pat lor etiquette
cannot be Introduced In base ball, yet
the sport offers a vast field for Im
provement. We all have noticed that
fact, or will when our attention is
called to It.
Here Is a new code of ethics which,
according to Chavles Drydem, the able
and witty bnse ball man of the New
York Journal, have been promulgated
by the National League, the object
being to elevate the game to the social
status of golf, tlddlewinks and lawn
tennis, and Impart that recherche
tone which has long been lacking.
Rule 1. Field captains and thirty-third
degree kickers must refrain from alter
ing the natural expression of an umpire's
features in the presence of the populace.
To convey an air of correct St. Louis. Mo ,
the Mafia should entice said umpire into
the dressing room after the game, pull a
hat bag over his head und Imprint a series
of swift kicks. For authority on this
point see the case of l.athum tt ul. vs.
Sheridan on Thursday April 23, 18!K1.
Rule 2. .Mixed-ale language reflecting
on the habits and character or annua!
pass-holders, who Intimate by word of
mcuth that the performance of a player
is in an advanced stage or decomposition,
can be taken as conclusive evidence that
the offender Is hopelessly W.'.lln Walla.
Wash. It Is much better to tell the critic
in placid accents that he is bughouse,
whatever that may be.
Rule 3. Winning pitchers, unless they
wish to be branded as Irredeemably Oma
ha. Neb., should avoid croominur a bright
new ball on the slark bremlths of their
bloomers before submitting it to the ban
man. Such procedure is no: only hear;
less, but exceedinRly Battle Creek. Midi.
as well. Unlicensed endeavor to put good
men out of the business cannot be toler
ated. The ball at best Is practically lnvls
lble to some of them, particularly the most
pronounced Mew rorK, is. .
Rule 4. No league player can be too
Baltimore. Md. For instance, when a bats.
man with an average of .372 dodges Into
a wild pitch or perverted Inshoot that
loosens his slats, he must not walk around
In a gradually decreasing circle with his
palid face upturned to the grandstand,
unless the game is taking place at Wil
mington, Del. In this case he is not amen
able to the new code.
Rule 6. White-garbed cntchtrs or first-
basemen. If gifted with the Instincts of
true Brooklyn, N. Y., will abstain front
