GENERAL 13P0RT1KG KEW8 OF THE DAT
tC0RKE6P0SDE5CI OF THI DISPATCH.1
Sxdset, December 19. "Whether base
ball gains a firm foothold or not in this
section of Australia, there can be no regret
on the part of the baseball combination lor
having traveled to the Antipodes. They
have been treated 'with a generous hos
pitality that has, had no limit to its excess,
and the few days that have been spent here
have been far too short to accept more than a
measure ot the courtesies extended to them.
"Whatever doubt existed as to the import
ance that the Australians would attach to
the event of their coming was speedily dis
pelled an hour before the splendid harbor
was reached. The Alameda was still be
hind time, but fortunately not sufficient to
cause anv further disappointment She ar
rived within sight of the Heads about twi
light, just as the last rays of the setting sun
were tinting the picturesque hills that
bordered the channel with a mellow,
golden radiance. The first to greet
the visitors were two steam-tags
crowded with people who waved the American
colors frantically and cheered themselves
hoarse in their efforts to show the sincerity of
their welcome. Brass bands on both sent out
the inspiring strains of "Star Spangled Banner"
and "Yankee Doodle," which were received
with enthusiastic appreciation by the Ameri
can visitors. As the boat approached close to
the steamer cheers were freely exchanged.
The ball players could scarcely have felt that
they were coming among strangers, for the
people on board the tugs singled out the promi
nent individuals in the party and cheered
jubilantly for "Baby" Anson, Spalding. Ward
and other well-known players. Further down
the bay several steam yachts joined in the pro
cession. Perhaps the prettiest effect of all was
the w elconie extended by a flotilla of boatmen.
About 40 of their small craft, which were
gayly decorated with flags and bunting, were
formed in two lines wide enough apart to allow
the Alameda to pass through. Several well
known oarsmen sailed about in their skiffs and
added their recognition to the welcome to the
COMMEKTS OX THE GAME.
If the attendance at the three games here is
to be accepted as a measure of the local appre
ciation of baseball, then the American game
can iardlj be considered to have achieved suc
cess. Tere were about seven or eight thou
sand people at the first game, but on the two
subsequent days, notwithstanding the addition
al attractions of cricket and a balloon ascen
sion, there were not over fifteen hundred and
one thousand people present. But lortunatcly
this rather meager financial patronage is not a
fair gauge of the impression which the national
American ;amc has made on the minds of
Australians. Its skillful and scientific features
commended themselves at once to those expert
enough to appreciate good battingand fielding,
while certain newspapers have extolled their
superiority over cricketers in these respects in
the most laudatory terms. In a review of the
first game played the Evening A'etn expressed
the following opinion of the playing:
"As a rule, cricketers here did not seem in
clined to favor the new (to us) game, hut those
among them who would honestly admit their
convictions frequently and heartily applauded
the magnificent throwing and catching ex
hibited. The Australian cricketers made one of
their strongest claims to recoraition In the
great worm oi criCKei tnrougn tnelr fielding and
bowling, but never, during the career of any
Australian eleven, have such fielding and
throwing been seen as the All-America and
Chicago teams showed nt They worked sys
tematically, swiftly and quietly, with delibera
tion even on many occasions when a striker's
dismissal was a foregone conclusion. But this
was always the case. In nearly two hours of
brisk and exciting play not a ball was missed
or 'fumbled:' it was taken on the fall or from
the ground faultlessly and returned with a pre
cision to nhich we are quite unaccustomed and
of which few among our best cricketers are
The -Referee, the prominent sportin? paper
here, has the following in its notice of the sec
ond game, which followed a cricket match
clayed between the Chicago and All-America
teams on Monday forenoon, the latter winning
by a score of 63 to 37:
'Though pretty well worn out with t
cricket and subsequent ball practice, the teams
showed wonderful unartness, and any man
possessing a spark of taste for athletics must
the victory of the All Americans by a score of
5 to 4 was due principally to their heavy-battirig
and clever base running. They are superior to
the Cnicagos in both these features, but es
pecially the latter. Anson's players, appear to
havo a wholesome dread of little Earle's throw
ing to bases. Daly's work was far below his
staudarJ last season. Superior batting and
base running also won the following two games
for Wand's teamot picked men." Anson caught
in the second contest and played a good game,
with the exception of his somewhat weak
throwing to bases. The games were not so well
played as the opening one, thB players being
fatigued from cricket playing prior to the
game. Owing to Crane's indisposition Healy

THE CRICKET MATCH.
The cricket match on the 18th between a base
ball 18 and a Sydney 11 was an extremely one
sided affair in favor of the Australians as re
gards run-getting. Only one inning was
played, the ball-tossers making but 81 runs,
while the Australians counted up 115 with only
six out. In fielding, however, the Americans
played with remarkable brilliancy, and their
work was liberally applauded. Pfeffer, Burns
and Anson made fine catches, and the Austra
lians believe the last-named 'would make an
equally able cricxeter as he is ball player if he
would devote his entire time to it. What the
Americans lack most are competent bowlers.
With their present force run-getting is easy.
It would be hazardous to predict that base
ball will be taken up here and become a perma
nent amusement. The people are devoted to
cricket, but it is possible that baseball may be
supported as a winter amusement in place of
football. The manager of the Association
cricket grounds is said to be opposed to foot
ball, as it is rough and spoils the turf, and he
has expressed a determination to try baseball
next winter. The older natives and English
men persist in calling it "rounders," but admit
its scientific improvement.
Should the venture ever be made to organize
clubs, so that the spirit of rivalry will give the
peonle an opportunity of betting, the game
may flourish. Australians bet on everything,
and baseball evidently gives them abundant
scope to exercise this spirivfor even during
the three games here tbey already made

As in New Zealand baseball is likely to have
the warm support of the newspaper men. Tbey
not only express the warmest adm'ration for it,
as already noted, but seem inclined to study
out its points and methods of scoring. All the
papers published lengthy accounts, and with
the assistance of the American correspondents
gave the full tabulated scores of the game.
The scores of the baseball and cricket games
were as follows:

did cot interrupt the men, 'and Brennan was

at Jack Dempsey's request, a telegram was

Secretary Fulda, stating that the directory of
the club at an earlv meeting would answer this

have admired the exhibition of speed, strength,
quickness of thought and hand and general
git up and gittishness' displayed. To truly
appreciate the intense cleverness displayed
one must have a slight inkling of the game;
given that, and I reckon it is the best game for
onlookers there is. There is a constant fever
of excitement. The ball and men are always
on the go. and each instant there is some bit
of lightning work to Interest and arouse en
thusiasm." THE FIBST COIfTEST.
The opening game took place on the day fol
lowing tbe team's arrival. December 19. The
weather was quite threatening, and horse
racing in one of the suburbs may have further
affected the attendance. A noticeable feature
was the large number of ladies present, fully
one-half of the assemblage being of the fair
sex. There was a pictnresqneness about the
crowd, too, that is never seen at a ball game in
America, and it was largely due to the charac
ter of tbe grounds. As a baseball field it was
a revelation to the ball players and other mem
bers of the party.
The ground, which is enclosed from the crowd
by a low, white picket fence, is In the Bhape of
an oval, and is about a quarter of a mile long
and about a sixth of a mile wide. The grass is
cut close and is almost as smooth and even as a
billiard-cloth. At the upper end of the ground,
opposite the longer diameter is a fine two-story
club bouse, with rows of seats in front reserved
for tbe use of members. Adjoining it is a cot
tage reserved for tbe ladies of the members,
with seats in front capable of accommodating
several hundred. Both of these buildings are
placed back about 80 feet from the fence, as is
also the handsome main grand stand, which will
seat about 3,000 people. The lower portion of
the latter is built of brick. In the center is the
special box of the Governor of the colony. The
space between tbe fence ana the first two-mentioned
buildings is laid out with nrettv flmccr.
beds, while the lawn in front of tbe grand stand
is utilized as a promenade, and it was an unus
ual and pretty sight at a baseball game to see
the neatly-dressed ladies walking npand down
during the progress of tbe game. The length
of a cricket game makes this custom enjoyable,
but it is not likely to live should baseball be
come popular. Around tbe other side of the
email fence is a green sward that slopes back
ward about SO feet. About six rows of seats
encircle tbe space close to tbe fence, but the
spectators evidently prefer to loll and lonnge
on the grass while they watch the sports. The
"bleaching boards" had scarce an occupant.
The baseDall "diamond" was marked out across
the narrow part of the ellipse. A stout cord
netting was put up as the "backstop's" fence,
an arrangement that might be introduced to
advantage on many league baseball grounds,
for apart from protecting the spectators a great
deal of unnecessary noise would be avoided.
The arrangements are such that 20,000 people
could easily see a game without encroaching on
the players' field. When the teams marched on
the grond tbey were received with a hearty
clapping of bands. Their handsome uniforms
and their fine, athletic figures were universally
A DEMONSTRATIVE CEOWD.
After the first innings tbe game was well
played, scarce an error being made. While
the natives were unable to appreciate the close
score and exciting character of the contest,
they were exceedingly demonstrative when
clean hits were made, fine fly catches were
made by the outfielders or bases were stolen
They doubtless comprehend the difficulty of
scoring runs, for Daly's home-run hit provoked
prolonged applause. A splendid fly catch by
Hanlon was greeted with a similar outburst.
But what amused them above all was the clever
base etcaling of the All-Americas. As at Auck
land, an attempt to catch a base runner nap
ping and bis quick slide and fall to the base
was always the signal for uproarous laughter
and continued applause.
The game was well played on both Bides, and

SMITH IS READY.
lie Accepts Mitchell's Challenge and 'vfrll
Jem Smith has not only accepted the chal
lenge of Charley Mitchell but has madean offer
to fight Jake Kilrain for the championship of
tbe world and 32.500 a side. The readiness with
which Smith has accepted Mitchell's chal
lenge gives force to the opinion that the affair
is only for any money that may be in it
Smith's challenge to Kilrain, however, is
more Important and doubtless is made in good
faith. Their last encounter was more of a
burlesqne than anything else, and it may be
that Smith is inclined to go on tbe "square"
this time. The same may be said of Kilrain.
A gennine battle between these two pugilists
would be a very Important event in the sport
ing world. However, if the Sullivan-Kilrain
contest is to proceed it will be impossible for
Smith and Kilrain to meet before next fall.
It is also stated that Bill Qoode, tbe English
middle-weight, is coming to this country next
month to fight Jack Dempsey.

CHAPPED hands result from two causes. Too'much alkali in the
soap, which draws the natural oil from the skin, leaving it harsh,
dry, and liable to crack, or the fats, from which the soap is made,
are not properly combined with the alkali, so, from its greasy nature,
it is impossible to rinse off the soap after washing. Prof. Leeds,
Ph. D., Stevens Institution of Technology, says: "The Ivory Soap,
while strongly cleansing, leaves the skin soft and pleasant to the
touch, instead of "harsh, uncomfortable, and liable to chap."-
, A-WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory';"
they ARE NOT, but (ike all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
