Ont of the Lot.

THE PHILLIES BEAT THE BOSTOKS.
Games Among the County League and
BASEBALL KEWS FBOH ALL POIKTS
There rere more than 5,000 people at
Recreation Park yesterday afternoon who
forcot all abont that historic gentleman,
George Washington, and the demonstration
in honor of his triumphs. Pete Conway
teas the hero of the HccreatioSi Park crowd
and lor a time his glory obscured all that
cbuld possibly surround the head of a Wash
ington, an Alexander or a Napoleon. Pete
knocked the ball clean ont of the lot and
, the probability is it is not found yet. Never
since Mr. Sullivan, of Chicago fame, per
formed a same feat at the opening game last
year has a home run been made, and the
rarity, combined with the fact that it tied the
score, cansed a demonstration of cheering,
yelling, jumping, stamping and knocking sel
dom if ever seen on the home grounds.
And Pete's home ran was a corker. He
v seemed to know that be had the dead wood on
Beattin. They had never met since their sepa
ration in Detroit last year. Past memoirs
were thrown aside and only open hostilities
went yesterday. Pete placed himself in front
of Beattin with a grin that betokened aevil
ment and after refusing two or three decoy
balls be pulled himself together and with a
"biff, bang' nailed the ball fair on the nose
and it went sailing into the air with the grace
Of a bird, Twitchell evidently knew its des
tiny because he stood calmly and gazed upward
to the flying sphere. Over the fence it went
midway between the center field and left field
i corners. It
WAS A LONG HIT
and no mistake. Conway's performance en
titles him to a silk bat offered by Gnsky's
firm. The latter offers a silk hat to every
Pittsburg player who makes a home run.
The game, generally speaking, was an Inter
esting one. The" Immense crowd helped to
make it cheerful, and the fact of an easy
victory in the morning made everybody confi
dent. Conway's borne ran aroused all those to
Cbeerfnlness who thought andfelt the weather
too cold. He pitched also in a way that showed
run-getting would be very rare indeed, as far
as the visitors were concerned, if no mistakes
were made. Pete was very unsteady,
and gave an unusual number of men
their base on balls. His unsteadiness,
however, was almost entirely owing
to want of practice, that is, practice in con
tests for blood. Yesterday's was bis first cham
pionship came ot the season, and he displayed
an effectiveness in the box that seems to assure
all of us that be will be frequently beard from.
When he got a ball across the plate the Babies
couldn't touch him. His support was excellent,
and It is a long time since little Jocko"' Fields
caught so well. He was out in great style, and
vith the exception of a faulty throw in the
first lnulnc bis work was perfect. The fielding
of the balance of the team was also excellent
Beattin pitched a fairly good game for the
visitors If Conwav bad not sized him up for
that terrific home run the borne club would
nave come away defeated. Outside of that big
bit Knehne was the only one who could touch
him. "Little Willie banged out
J SPLENDID SINGLES.
V.t, j. was also weUsupported, although
Satellite's throwing to second and third bases
was Tery poor. Altogether the youngsters
were fairly outplayed in both games yesterday.
The visitors were the first to score, and tbey
did so in a way that made the immense crowd
weary. A host of things consDiredto give
them three unearned runs. Strieker led off
and obtained his base on balls. McAleer
knocked a grounder to Conway, and the latter
threw the ball terribly wide of second base.
This sent Stacker to third and McAleer to first
The latter stole second. JIcKean knocked a
grounder to Beckley, who threw the ball to
Fields speedily, and Strieker was ran down be
tween third and borne. Twitchell came
to the bat and thumped out a long
single to right bringing in .McAleer and Mc
Sean. Twitchell stole second, aided by a poor
throw of Fields. Faatz flew out to Dunlap.
Radford banged a hot grounder against Con
way's foot, and the ball bounded into left field,
allowing Twitchell to score the third run.
The visitors made their fourth and last run
In the eighth inning. After McKean had been
retired on the short grounder of Twitchell,
Faatz was pat out at first Radford then made
a long single to center, and Twitchell scored.
The home players commenced run getting in
the second inning. Fields went to first on
balls, and was advanced a base by Maul's out
at first Knehne then made a long hit to left
and Fields scored. Smith advanced Kuehnea
base, add was retired himself at first Fete
CSway then caused the sensation by walloping
the ball, a low one. over the left
field fence for a home run,tieing the score.
A single, a sacrifice hit a stolen base and a
wild throw netted another ran in the fourth.
In the filth, after two men were out Fields
reached first on Strieker's fumble, and reached
third on Maul's hit to left Maul stole second,
and Fields scored on a passed ball. Kuehne's
single brought Maul home. No more runs
were made. Lynch umpired a good game.

THE MORNING GAME.
"' 'The morning game was attended by abont
i iDOO people,and w hile victory favored tho home
players the crowd didn't feel very comfortable.
- 3?he weather was too cold and the contest too
s one-sided. Mr. Gruber, the gentleman who
was nearly signed by the local club once,
pitched for the youngsters and he was nearly
knocked oat of the box. He was Just the kind
" of man tbe home sluggers want to meet every
day. His Ineffective pitching really tells tbe
story of the game.
Old Gal vin was a riddle to a great extent
and the Babies could do but little with him.
Beckley bad bis batting clothes on, and banged
away at tbe balk
xn me oicn inning Strieker was so badly
hurt at second that be had to retire. Hanlon
was sliding to second and Strieker essayed to
pot him ont Haulon's feet struck Strieker in
the face, catting his cheek to the bone. He
retired and was replaced by Itadferd, whose
position in right was filled by Gllks. Score:

Bbookt.ti. April 30. Morning Just 2,260
people went to Washington Park this morning
to witness tbe game of baseball between the
Brooklyn and Baltimore teams. The visitors
batted Lovett bard in the first inning, and four
runs scored determined the outcome of the
contest In the remainingeight innings Lovett
did great but two hits being made. Tbe home
team showed little effort at team work, the men
seemingly forgetting that sacrifice batting
was a factor in winning a game. Holland's
decisions were not satisfactory, and both teams
were wrangling continually. Quinn's catching
and tbe infield work of Plnkney. Burns and
Farrell were the features. Score:

Kaksas Cttt, April 90. Kansas City won
its first game from Cincinnati this afternoon in
the presence of 7,500 enthusiastic spectators.
It was a heavy batting game in which the
honors were evenly divided, Viau suffering for
eleven hits and McCarty for nine. The visitors
were crippled at third base bv an accident to
Carpenter, who was severely spiked in tbe
fourth inning by Hoover while the latter was
sliding in. Carpenter's injury is serious and
will lay him off for some time. Burns, Beilly,

driving tbe ball over the center field fence for
a home run. Score

played with the McKeesports since the season
opened it may be that the latter club will reach
for tho pennant It appears to be waving in
front of Taneyson, and he is going to try awful
hard to capture it The Riverside Greys met
with very bad defeat by the McKeesports at
McKeesport yeBterday afternoon. 'The home
club saw at the opening of the game that it
would be an easy victory for it and while they
doubled the score on the visitors they could
have whitewashed the Greys had they avoided
The game was witnessed by a very large at
tendance. It is expected that the best game of
the season will be that to take place here next
Saturday, when the Oakland club plays the
McKeesports. The score of to-day was IS to 26

An English Authority Talks Abo at the Al
The London Field in an able editorial on the
growth of amateur athletics, mentions some
points that should not exist such as the fol
lowing: "The exceedingly liberal definition of
an amateur recognized by tbe Association en
ables a lot of men to compete as amateurs,
whose only right to tbe title rests on tbe cir
cumstance that they have never engaged in a
race or contest of any kind for a money prize
or staked bet What is done on their behalf in
the way of betting on or against them, accord
ing to circumstances, or. what becomes of the
trophies tbeymay carry off in some cases by an
elaborately planned scheme of 'roping' are
matters sot sufficiently inquired into.
"Toward lowering the tone of athletics the
particular kind of atnlete referred to has done
much, but he stands not alone. Secretaries of
clubs hare contributed in no small measure to
the downward tendency. The desire to please
the public, to whom athletes as well as others
must look for support is to be upheld; and it is
only right that the secretary of a club should

going to see. But when, in order to show a
mammoth programme, to gain a "record entry,
that secretary resorts to deceptive tactics, one
cannot be surprised that the smaller fry are

among the entries, and when called to account
by that runner merely replies that he shall not
look for any entrance money, deserves the con
demnation of all; as also does the jealous sec

Park yesterday that afforded any amount of
interest and excitement to the S00or600

favorable for racing, it being damp and
cold. The track was not in good condition
either, as at the first turn the water nearly
extended across the track. Tbe center of
the park was completely flooded with water,
and it looked like a lake.
There were four events on the card, tbe first
beluga race for horses owned by local butchers
and merchants. There were no less than ten
starters for tbe race and it ultimately ell to
Walter B, owned by Walter Booth. Mr.
