[Eckford v. Union of Morrisania 5/23/1870] We would recommend the proprietors of the various grounds to instruct the policemen to put a stop to the impertinent remarks occasionally made by a few blackguards, who, betting upon the game, insult the umpire by impugning his decisions when they are adverse to their interests. This game was umpired with the strictest impartiality, yet Mr. Meyers must frequently have been annoyed by the coarse remarks we allude to. Such vagabonds ought to be turned out of the ground at once, if they do not know how to behave themselves.
