It is now definitely settled that the Lucas-Wainwright base ball organization will not have grounds at the corner of Dayton and Jefferson avenue. The lease for another spot that is said to be decidedly better has been signed by all the interested parties but Mr. Lucas, who is expected to arrive home this morning and complete the document by affixing his signature to it. The location of the prospective diamond is known only to those directly interested, and will not be revealed until the lease becomes a fact. It is, however, freely asserted that it is a spacious, level and very accessible, though not so near the central part of the city as the tract previously supposed to have been engaged.
