As there is no longer any doubt but that the Metropolitans will carry off the American Association championship pennant of '84, Manager Mutrie to-day [9/30] issued a challenge to the Providence Club, the champion League team of '84, to play them a series of five games for the championship of the United States and $1,000 a side, under the following conditions: Two games to be played under the National League rules and two under the American Association rules. The manner and place of the playing of the fifth game is to be decided thereafter. The $1,000 to go to the poor of the city represented by the club winning the greater number of games. Manager Mutrie thinks he can play a strong game against the Providence team, and should the Mets succeed in winning the series they will make an extensive tour through the South.
