Anson Gets a Game From the

GEKEEAL BASEBALL NEWS OF THE DAT
There is not much generosity in wanting
to win every ball game that is played, and a
well-designing Providence, doubtless, has
arranged earthly affairs in such a way that
no National League club need expect to per
form any such selfish act. This is, without
question, a ery wise arrangement, and the
wisdom of it is so clear that argument in its
support is unnecessary. Our home talent
has made Anson and his striplings bite the
dust twice this week, and it was meet that
defeat should be their lot yesterday so as to
icep the other people from absolute de
spondency. The great question in dispute
yesterday atternoon, however, was not
whether or not we should win
but whether or not wo should be covered with
a dose of what Is metaphorically called white
wash. Depend upon it matters looked as
if our representatives couldn't escape that dose.
Mr. Anson, doubtless, had his little brushes
Teady for use, but they were not needed. The
eleventh hour, however, arrived before thatmo
ncntous question was decided.
The weather was miserable, just such a day
that either Cbicagoans or anybody can have al
most anything they want here to get out of the
way. The damp and raw wind that howled
across the park placed overcoats at a premium
and caused the players to do song and dance
tricks in the field. As a result there was barely
2,000 people in the park, and they were certain
ly uncomfortable. The rain was so threatening
at one stage that it was thought the game
would be called. The legitimate end was
reached, however, and Chicago was awarded
its first championship victory of this year.
AS AMUSING FEATUBE.
There were not many features in the game,
but there was one worthy of note. At the
commencement Anson began to draw Galvin's
attention to a "balk" that Jimmy was making
in sbmgging his shoulders. Jeems pitched on
tmheedless of the Chicago Captain's remarks
lor a time. They became monotonous, how
ever, and the Gentle shouted to Lynch:
"Umpire, will you keep this man quiet?"
Lynch called a halt, and gave a very pointed
admonition to Anson to "shut up."' This
tickled the crowd, and one member of the
bleaching board audience yelled in sarcastic
"Anson, be a gentleman or nothing."
This timely reminder of the Chicago club's
latest moral declaration evidently had an im
pressive effect on Anson, -as he never kicked
The game was somewhat of the onesided kind.
True, the visitors should not have made a run
until the eighth inning, but they were touch
ing old Galviu up so frequently that their vie
tory looked a foregone conclusion. It was one
of those days on which Galvin's best or at least
most energetic efforts only result in slaughter.
The veteran is not in line yet by any means,
and it may be opportune here to remark that
scarcely a pitcher in the nine is. This, of
course, is the usual condition of affairs in the
local team at the start off. However. Jimmy
was pounded, and quite merrily at that. The
ball was knocked far enough and often enough
away to win two or three games. With the
exception of Kuehne, Galvin had excellent
SOME GBEAI FIELDING.
Maul distinguished himself in right field and
at bat. Ont of the four times he wielded the
(stick he made three bits. His fielding was
.equal to any seen here in right field, not en
tirely because of the flies he caught, but also
'because of the many bounders he neatly and
on some occasions brilliantly picked up. His
fielding was one of the features.
Tener, that tall, lithe and gentlemanly youth
from the eastern part of the city, was in the
box for the visitors, and if ever a human being
fooled other human beings he fooled f. he Pitts
burg sluggers. Tney couldn't touch him, and
at the end of the eighth they only had three
little hits. He kept them bugging the bases,
also, and, altogether, he did about rust as well
as anybody else could have done. Tener may
blossom into a reliable and effective pitcher,
but it looked toward the close of the game
he was being measured up. There is one prob--ability
about Tener, viz.: that if he is once sized
up be will go all to pieces. He is not like an
old stager and can resort to many dodges and
arts. However, it is fair to say that be gave an
excellent exhibition of pitching yesterday. He
was also well supported by Farrell and the bal
ance of his colleagues. Duffy and Ffeffer
really did stop what appeared, to be corking
hits, beyond the shadow of a' doubt. In the
third inning Ffeffer stopped a terrific grounder
from Miller's bat that won him rounds of ap
plause. Sommers. of last year's Bostons, ap
E eared with the Chicagos and played right field.
e had no chances and was not very successful
at tbe hat.
The visitors were the first to score, and tbe;
tallied three in tbe third inning. Ryan opened
tbe inning and rapped a lively grounder in
front of Kuehne. The latter was in excellent
-ont oi jinenne. xne latter was in excellent
nsition to get it, but it went clean through
position to get it, nut it went clean tnrougn
between his legs and Ryan got to first safe v.
Van Haltren flew out to Maul, .and Duffy
fouled out to Miller.
WHAT THE EBB0ES DID.
The side ought now to have been out. Anson,
with his big bat and brawny arms, loomed up
and knocked out a single to right, and Pfeffer's
single sent Ryan home and Anson reached
third on Kuehne's muff of a thrown ball by
Miller. Farrell came up and walloped out a
double to left field, bringing both Anson and
Tbe .eighth inning was lively, indeed. Mr.
Ffeffer smilingly took Jimmy's measure for a
corkinc triple to deep center field. Farrell
again rapped out a single, bringing Pfeffer
home and reached second himself on a passed
ball. Burns knocked out a single and Farrell
scored. Then Sommers banged out a double
over Hanlon's head and Tommy Bums ambled
home. Tener was put out at first, Sommers
reaching third on tbe sacrifice. Ryan brought
Sommers home by a good single to middle.
Tbe next two men were retired in order.
Tbe home players made their only run in the
last inning. Miller led off with a double and
scored on Bcckley's long single to left field.
Dunlap flew out to Ryan and Carroll got his
bases on balls. Maul mde a single, filling tbe
bases, and tbere was a dim hope of victory as
Kuehne came to bat. He made a good bluff
by knocking tbe ball to tbe right field fence,
but about six Inches outside the foul line. He
then struck out and "Pop" Smith flew out to
Rvan, leaving the bases full. Following is the

He Wilt be Given o Chance to Go Where He
A start has been made in disposing of the
surplus players of the local club. John Cole
man is tbe first to be notified that his services
are no longer required. Yesterday Manager
Phillips told Coleman that ten days from date
he could consider himself unconditionally re
leased. The ten daTys' notice is required by
rule go as to give any of the other League clubs
a chance to sign Coleman. Mr. Phillips, how
ever, states that he will get the other clubs to
waive claim on Coleman so that he can go
where be chooses.
Maul is to be retained for a time at least.
One of the chief reasons why he has been kept
instead of Coleman is that be can go into the
box now and again. Tbe club officials state
that they will do all In their power to secure
Coleman a good engagement. He will be paid
his salary for tbe next ten days, whether be
signs before then or not.

New York, April 26. The Boston-New York
game scheduled for to-day was postponed on
account uf the rain. To-morrow's game will
also be postponed and will be played later in
tbe season, as St. George, Staten Island, cannot
be made ready before next week. The Giants
will all live this year on Staten Island, and tbe
Champions will begin to-morrow a grand
boarding house hunt.
Stopped by Rain Again.
Washisgtox, April 26. The heavy rain
storm which set in here on Wednesday night
continues to-day, and therefore there was a
further postponement of the National Jockey

TROTTING IN ENGLAND.
Crooked Work Has Caused a
Trotting, although so popular in America,
has never been really In favor in England, says
the London Field, owing in part to the ques
tionable practices with which it has been sur
rounded, and partly because fashion never lent
its countenance to the amusement. It is not,
however, unreasonable to assert that trotting,
properly earned out, may do for our harness
horsesn hat racing and steeplechasinghave done
for our hunters. The National Trotting Associa
tion came to an end last year, and its decease
may possibly prove to be the best thing that
could have happened if trotting Is to take a
place in the list of English amusements. The
old association stood in the way of many neces
eary reforms, but nbw that it is defunct a
strenuous attempt is being made to place trot
ting upon a more satisfactory basis.
The first step toward regeneration has been
the formation of the Alexandra Park Trotting
Club, of which Sir Edward Lee is President.
A uew code of rules, formed upon tbe lines of
those in vogue in America, has been drawn up,
and includes some stringest provisions against
those dishonest practices which in the past
have done so much to bring trotting into dis
repute. The new departure has been so far
successful that 100 persons have joined the
club, although its first meeting was held no
longer ago than March 1L Six meetings will
be held in the course of the forthcoming sea
son. The first is fixed for Mav 6 and 7, and will
take place at Alexandra Park.
At the Sandown Park spring meeting to-day
the Walton two-year-olds race for 1.000 sov,
was won by J. A. Craven's Cbarlotteville. The
Fisher stakes (a mid-weight handicap), one
mile, was won by Lord Alington's King Fisher.

Cal McCarthy, ot New York, .and Johnny
Murphy, of this city, for trophies valued at
$800 and S200 respectively. McCarthy was the
favorite before the match, almost any odds
being offered in his favor, but the Boston man
surprised even those who best knew his capa
bilities. The men were in fine condition, strip
ping at 115 pounds. From the start McCarthy
forced the fighting, but Murphy laid in wait
for him and returned his blows with interest.
In the first round tbere was savage work and
Murpby twice knocked his opponent to the
floor. The last blowbroke a bone in Murphy's
forearm, but this did nofdeter him from con
tinuing the fight.
For three more rounds Murphy bested Mc
Carthy, using only bis right hand, and in the
third round again knocked McCarthy-down.
In the fourth round Murphy's seconds abso
lutely refused to allow him to continue, al
though he vigorously declared his ability to
beat McCarthy. The fight was accordingly
awarded to "Cal," It was tbe opinion of many
in the crowd that had Murpby not met with
tbe accident he wonld have knocked McCarthy
out within ten rounds. Al Smith, of New
York, was referee.
About Charley Friel.
Mr. Samuel Keys, of this city, writes to the
Chicago Horseman as follows: "As you are
aware I have put Charley Friel in the Fasig
sale. He is entered In good faith, and will be
Sold to the highest bidder. You are also aware
he was advertised at private sale a short time
since in the Horseman. I received over U0
letters and telegrams, but wa sick in bed for
nearly three weeks and unable to answer them.
Thought the best way out of the dilemma was
to enter him there, where everybody can see
for themselves and have an equal chance. I
am pot much of a man to overrate them, and
have merely stated his record, 2:16K, but think
him a better borse this spring than he ever was
in his life. While he is an exceptionally fine
road horse, it would be almost a sin against
racing to use him for that purpose, as I con
sider him a good horse in his class and able to
beat his record."

The boy stoSd on the burning deck,
Whence all but he had fled;
He saw amid the cargo's wreck
A box, and, calling, said :
"Say, father, say if I may sit
Upon this box and wait?"
And then without his sire's permit,
Down on that box he sate.
For 'tw a box
And buoyantly it bore
That gallant child, who ne'er lost hope
Safe to the sandy shore. -
