The whole trou- ble arises from the fact that they received no pay when It came due on June 15, and in fact.they have received no salaries since June 1.

Fielder Using Bat Anton Had Mads 17 Ysars Ago. John Titus, the Philadelphia right fielder, is using a bat that has some history1 connected with it. .-.In ..1894 Captain Anson discovered a piece of timber that lie considered ideal wood for a baseball hat, and he proceeded to have It turned into a cudgel. An son in his day merely had to swing it and the ball would go to the fence. It is so heavy, however, that many an ordinary player would hardly care'to handle It. When Pop Anson retired from the game be retained this great stick as a treasure. At last when the former star's belongings went un- der the hammer Pat Moran purchased tills bat, and when Pat was bought from the Cubs he brought it to Phila- delphia. Titus coaxed and finally Moran consented let him have the bat.r first hit' was a over, the fence off Dob Harmon' of St. Louis. Titus has been batting c.onilat.ently.kcver since he came Into Kwacsilon. ft FaJ'g ft'd j INDIANS AND BATTLE'THIS EVENING The Indians and Maroons plaly ball tonight at the park.
