An annual event of interest is

making usual preparatiens this
year for the celebration of "Home

Not to Play Fayetteville.
The promoters of the local Base
Ball Association held a meeting
in the Club Roo/ns Monday night
for the purpose of considering
the challenge sent them by the
Fayetteville team to play at Wil
mington for the Amateur cham
pionship of North Carolina.
Fayetteville proposal was to
play at Wilmington the 27th, 28
th. and 29th, to this Hickory re
plied proposing to play the series
at Charlotte which more nearly
equal distance for both team.
This proposition was refused and
Hickory then proposed that three
games be played at Wilmington
and three at Hickory, this also
met with'witq a refusal.
The time was also objected to
by Hickory which brought forth
the statement that the Fayette
ville team had disbanded and
could not be gotten together a
gain before the 27th.
Inasumch as the League teams
disband the 25th if began to look
to the Hickory men that Fayette
ville in insisting on the 27th
meant to employ a league team
on that date instead of her own.
For tneir. reason the whole mat
ter was called off and it appears
that no frame will be played.
