The Present Eecord in Both the League
M GENEKAL SPORTIXG NEWS OP THE DAT
Those babies are a lot of tough and obsti
nate young customers, and it seems that
nothing short of borne run swipes can knock
them out when their aspirations are really
an the direction of victory. Once more the
ball had to be knocked out of the lot yester
day before they could be settled, and even
after that gigantic performance they as
turned an air of defiance that caused the
houie adults to act on their merits. Albert
J. Maul was the gentleman of glory and
prestige yesterday. He banged the ball
clean over the left field fence, at a very op
portune time, and immediately began to
figure on Gusky's silk hat. The biz hit couldn't
well have been made at a better time, because
It seemed to change what looked like a sure de
feat into a glorious victory, even though the
victims were the youngsters from Cleveland.
The contest lasted 12 innings, and it was full
to overflowinz with brilliant plays. The work
of the babies was such as to convince people
that those who consider the youngsters pie
may be sadly mistaken. They are, indeed, a
tolerably smooth article at Pittsburg when
Mr. Bakely is representing them in the box.
Matters really did look chilly, even more so
than the weather felt right up to the eighth in
ning. The home representatives Seemed
doomed beyond all redemption to a clean shut
out by the little fellows. Maul's big thump,
however, gave the contest another aspect, be
cause it not only earned a run, but it resulted
in Bakely being a little easier to measure.
IT LOOKED BLUE.
Up to that point not a clean hit had
been made by the home players, and
they were two runs behind the visitors,
There were probably 1,500 people present, and
they enjoyed the game as the first extra in-
nm contest of the season. Every inning after
the ninth was fraught with the most exciting
1 eatnres,becanse every move was watched with
an interest that spell-bound tho crowd. Every
member of the two teams played as if their
lives were at stake, and when victory perched
itself on local banners a ringing cheer resound
ed through the pare It is, indeed, a long time
since a better exhibition of fielding was seen
iu this city than that of yesterday. It would not
be wide of the mark to say that there has been
no better general field work seen here. McAleer
the center fielder of the visitors, without doubt
did as good work as any patron of the game
would desire to see. He had a record of seven
catche", and two of them were so brilliant that
they will often be commented on by the people
whu saw them. One was a long hit from the
bat of Carroll. The ball flew high and swift Into
deep center field. Spectators who had no scru
ples about taking a neighbor's pocketbook
wholesale would have bet 10 to 1 that the bit
was good enough for two or three bases. The
truth is, when the ball was flying it looked an
impossibility for anybody to catch. McAleer
went after it like a honnd, and just got beneath
It as he fell. He grasped the ball, however, as
he rolled over, and held it Beckley banged
out another tremendous hit which McAleer
caught similarly to the way he caught Carroll's
-XaulstsS fielded -exceptionally well. Not
, only did he catch all chances, but he fielded
i hits and threw the ball borne in a way that
"There was, however, a deal of what is ordi
narily called luck on the side of Cleveland.
r The majority of their hits were of that order
- known as "scratch kits." They would rap a
I grounder bang against somebody's feet and
l just on to a stone or small knob that would
-, canse it to bound right in a contrary direction
it to what the fielders were expecting. On the
. other hand the home players were thumping
ALIi OYIE TIIE IXT,
but it .would invariably go straight to a fielder's
hands. On one occasion Beckley walloped the
ball high over the right field fence, bnt it was
i ontslde the foul line. Had this hit gone all
right there would have been no 12 innings. If
everything had gone all right, however, the
game would have been 1 to 0 in favor of tho
home players. Bakely is undoubtedly a good
Sitcher. but be will assuredly get his medicine
efore be gets round the circuit. He was fast
being measured yesterday when the game
ended. He was exceedingly well supported by
S'taley pitched a good game, although he was
at times very nnsteady. This unsteadiness
caused Miller to make one or two mistakes
-which contributed to rnn-getting. Lynch did
not give good satisfaction in bis decisions. In
the fourth inning he called Dnnlap out at sec
ond when it is safe to say be was safe. Dnnlap
was absolutely convinced of this, and a wrangle
commenced between Dunlap and Lynch. The
latter got ont his watch, ami threatened to de
clare the game if Dunlap did not subside and
allow the game to proceed. Dunlap retired to
. The visitors scored first and in away that was
hot pleasing to, home club admirers. After
Faatz was out. Radford got his base on balls,
and stole second on a wild throw by Miller. A
passed ball enabled him to score. In the seventh
inning ltadf ord reached first on a f amble by
Dnnlap, and again stole second and scored on
The home club did not make a clean hit until
the eighth inning. The score was then 2 to 0
in favor of the visitors. ,Maul opened the
' inning, and with a big and graceful swipe
- "nailed a low ball on the nose and sent it grace
fully sailing over the left field fence fora home
run. The cheers were deafening. Kuehne
was retired at first and Smith made a good
single, but was nabbed while trying to steal
second. Staley was retired at first. In the
next inning the score was tied. After Hanlon
-was out Miller got his base on balls and reached
home on Dnnlap's long single to right. In
the twelfth inning Carroll reached first on
balls and got to third by daring base running
on Smith's sacrifice hit. Kuehne's hit to right
.field'bronght Carroll home .with the winning
run,' Following is the full score:

DASHED TO DEATH.
Tbrilllnit Scene nt Pnssnle Fall A Man
Goes to His Death While the Living
Look On Sad Ending of a
ISFECIAL TZLEOBAH TO THE OISPATCn.1
New Yoek, May 1. James Legg started
to row a boat across the Passaic river this
afternoon to take his brother 'William and
lour girl friends to Laurel Grove Cemetery
to decorate another brother's grave. The
river was swollen with recent rains. When
about half way over the boat was caught in
the current and swept toward tie first dam
above the falls, in spite of all bis exertions
to stem the tide. For a long time he
struggled, bnt inch by inch he went down
the river toward the dam, bis strength all
the time growing less.
It was evident to the hundreds of specta
tors on the river banks that he was doomed.
His brother Villiam sprang into a lighter
boat and went to his brother's rescue, but
bad not gone far when one of bis oars broke,
arid he had all he could do with the remain
ing one to scnll back to shore and save him
self. The spectators yelled for James to
jump from the boat and swim to the shore.
The boat appeared too big for him to
handle. He obeyed, and under ordinary
circumstances be could have saved himself.
But the current was too strong, and be was
carried .over the dam,
He was still alive, but nothing could re
sist the seething current between the dam
and the great falls. The water poured over
the brink of the 70-foot precipice six feet
thick, and as smooth as oil, to b6 dashed
into foam on the rocks in the chasm below.
Had he remained in the boat he would have
been saved, for the big skiff was caught in
an eddy, whirled around a minute or two,
and then struck against the bank, where it
was caught and made fast
FORGOTTEN AND NEGLECTED.
Tho Sad Story of Two Lonely Horse Cars
on a Cable Road.
It is an old saying that one-half the world
don't know what the other half is doing.
And it is questionable whether more than a
dozen out of every hundred patrons of the
Citizens' Traction Railway are aware that
in 'spite of the half hundred cable cars
pulled over that road by tho great Corliss en
gines, a few horso cars are still rnn over the
same rails In the old-fashioned way.
At midnight the last cable car whirls east
watd. Then thoold familiar ting-aJing, ting-a-ling,
of horse cars commences and continues
all night nntll6A.3L The all-night cars are
still hauled by horses. It takes them 40
minutes to traverse the same distance which
the cablo booms a car along in 23 minutes Jn
On account of their unseasonable hours,
therefore, it is natural that theso' time-honored
owl cars" should have been seen but bv com
paratively few people. But it is quite f nnnv that
thd existence or the two horse cars should ap
parently have- been utterly forgotten by the
railway company. Patrons of the all-night cars
say they can't help but think that is the
trouble. In tho loophouse on Cecil alley, be
tween Penn and Liberty streets, there is a big
bole in the track in which workmen
stand while examining the grips
of cable cars. A few planks
thrown across this cavity at nl;ht wonld en
able the horses of the all-night cars to pull
oyer the holo and around the loop. Instead of
that the all-night cars for the past four
months have been compelled to Jump the track
at Ninth street on every trip, and trundle over
the cobble stones to the opposite track. It Is a
common thfhg every night to see a panic among
passengers, who run for their lives, as they seo
the way the car-stove and lamps dance about
in the general shaking up. They are going to
formulate a petition to tha company, remind-
lng them there are still two .horse" cars on the
road after the pet cable cars are boused, and
that S3 worth of lumber in' that loop-house
will avert all danger from track-jumping.

about Mr. Brown's intentions of winning with

"You see," commenced the old gentleman,
"this smart nephew of mine came down

I have among my acquaintances a young
lady who teaches school, in the primary
grade. Sue had a lot of little ones under
her care, and she has prided "herself on her
discipline and the excellent .order she was
able to maintain. The other day she
started to leave the room for a. moment, and
had only 'just reached the door, when she
was startled by .a great laugh which came
from the whole schoolroom. She turned
and looked at her scholars in amazement,
and the thought flashed over her that may
be there was something on her back or that
a portion of her skirt drapery had become
disarranged. But she faced the school and
speedily subdued the numerous lingering
"Whoever caused that laugh will please
stand up. I insist upon it at once."
She meant business, and the little tots all
saw it. Nobody moved .for about a minute,
and then a little brown-eyed boy of '7 years,
who sat behind a pretty, golden-haired little
missof 6, tremblingly stood up. Thefeacher
looked at him in astonishment. He was
one of her pets.
"Johnny, what did you do to make the
whole school laugh. like that?" she asked.
"I-kiesed Lilly Seton," hesitatingly
confessed the youngster, with a shy glance
-at the golden curls and the blushing face
bent low over a primer.
"I could hardly keep my own face
straight," said the teacher, when, telling
about it, "but I summoned up all the se
verity I could muster, and ordered them
both to stay after school to be punished."
"I asked how she punished them. "I
made them kiss. each other again." she de
clared, triumpliantly, "and I enjoyed it

PARNELL ANSWERS EACH QUERI
In a Clear, Candid Manner, That Could
Not Bo Misunderstood.
KOTHIKG TO DOtwiTfl PATEICO0RD.
Only Constitutional Means of Agitation-Were Sanc
tioned by Him. '
Parnell was cross-examined bj Attorney
General Webster yesterday., His answers
were clear and candid. He admitted know
ing.a number of the persons referred to, -but
absolutely denied any connection witbTillegal
conspiracies of any natnre. He said he had
no. 'relations with Patrick Pord, and the
Irish TTorHhad not supported Him for'many
years. Contributions to League fnnds were
accepted from every source.
LONDok, May 1. The direct examina
tion of Mr. Parnell was finished this morn
ing, and Attorney General "Webster com
menced the cross-examination. If any hope
ful Tory believed that the Times' lawyer
had anything in reserve which would con
found Mr. Parnell he has been wolully dis
appointed thus far. Every question asked
was answered in a clear and straightforward
manner, and with an air that carried con
viction with it.
Mr. Parnell,on cross-examination, denied
that the irtsft World ever collected moneys for
the Parliamentary party. The Irish World
had been hostile to himself and the Pari in-
mentary party since 1882. Attorney Gen
eral "Webster here produced extracts from
the Irish World nraisin? Mr. Parnell's
action in Parliament after 1882. Sir Charles
Russell, counsel for the' Parnelliies, put in
extracts adverse to Mr. Parnell.
"WHAT HE FBEEEY ADMITS.
The cross- examination was then contin
ued, and Mr. Parnell admitted knowing
Mooney, otherwise known as "Trans-Atlantic"
He did not know whether Mooney
contributed to the parliamentary fund.,
Mooney wrote violent articles, still witness
would not object to receiving Mooney's
tribute to assist the party if he did not pub
lish articles advocatingmurder.
Witness had held no communication with
Patrick JFord since 188L He emphatically
aeniea tnat nis .risn schemes ever included
a coalition with the Fenians in order to
expel landlords from Ireland. He certain
ly aimed to destroy landlordism, but not to
drive individuals from the country, and
never had any idea of resorting' to illegal
. He did not recollect meeting Mr. Dayitt
and John O'Leary in 1878, and disenssing
with them a possible alliance between the
Nationalists and the Fenians. He had no
uotion that the national fund in America
and the skirmishing fnnd were identical.
Attorney General Webster here read a vio
lent manifesto signed by John Devoy and
others, and issued at Dublin.
KO PAET OF HIS DUTY.
Mr. Parnell declared that he had. never
heardof.it before. He had met Messrs.
Devoy; Breslin, Pinerty and Alexander
Sullivan and a number of physical force
men. He said he would frankly avow that
he felt it was no part of his duty to exclude
anyone from the League on account of their
antecedents. He wanted to include in it all
Irishmen, trusting that every section would
accept the new constitutional form of agita
tion. He had aimed at asking the physical
force men-to abandon their- movement and
to accept his. To shut the constitntional
door in their faces becanse they did not im
mediately agree would have been very fool
ish., He did not recollect making aspeech
at Lynn, Mass., in which it was alleged he
had said that when England was beaten to
her knees the time would have come to real
ize the idea of the Nationalists. He ad
mitted that if he had used those words he
must have been thinking of methods of war
fare in the event of constitutional agitation
At Troy somebody offered him 5 for
bread and '$20 for lead. He did not object to
the offer, because he thought the officer only
meant $5 for charitable work and $20 for

New Yoek, May 1. The Metropolitan
Opera House this evening was again the
scene of patriotic festivity. The National
Provident Union, an association which" may
be described as a sort of patriotism-factory,
inasmuch as its aim and object is to incul
cate love of country and incidentally to in
sure the lives of its members, was the host
on this ocsasion. General "William War
ner, Commander-in-Chief of the Grand
Army of the Republic, was Chairman, and
around him were Edward O. Bragden,
President, and other officers.of the Union.
Cappa's Seventh Begiment Band played
patriotic airs, and Miss Bmily "Winanf
sang, and then Senator Daniel, of Virginia,
made a speech. He wanted to open no old
wonnds, the orator said, bnt he wished to
say that he would be a small and pitifnl
creature if any spark of bitterness remained
in his heart after the reception which had
been tendered him, And in the name of old
Virginia he could declare that in soul and
spirit no more loyal men could be found
than in the State which was the mother of
Presidents. "Virginia feels," concluded
Senator Daniel, "that New York has stormed
the heights of hate and planted her banner,
'excelsior,' at their top."
After Mrs. Gerrit Smith and IP. P. Power
had sung, the band played, and Miss Ger
trude L. Wood, costumed as Liberty, recited
Drake's "American Flag.",

"I've been fighting again, mamma," ha
said, in anticipation of a rebuke, "and with -Bob
