rSFECUI. TELIOKAHTO TBI DISrATCST.J
Indianapolis, May 4. There Iwas a
handsome crowd in attendance !at the
ball park to see the second game in the
series with Pittsburg. The home club
battery was "Whitney and Daily, with
JJnssie substitute, and the visitors pre
sented Galrin and Miller, of thei awlul
Toice, with Conway as substitute. Tis in
dicated an overweening desire by the Pitts
N burgers to win another ball game from the
Hoosier team. Galvin was hurt when the
game was about half played, and Staley
Indianapolis people may have seen some
where else more terrific batting, but cer
tainly not on the home gronnd. Nothing,
however, equaled It here. The Pitfcsburgers
were plucky, and played with great force until
after Galrin was hurt, when they seemed to
let down. In the first inning Indianaiiolis cap
tured two. Little Emmet Seery, who lias been
batting so successfully in the two
games he has played, begun the
game with a two-base drive to
center field. Glasscock gave Pop 'Smith a
rather warm bounder, bnt he handled it suc
cessfully, Seery reaching third on the out. and
6conng on Denny's hot single to right. Mc
Geachy hit along the left foul lino for two
bags. Daily's sacrifice scored Denny, and Hines'
out from Smith left "Mack" at third after two
strikes. Visitor Hanlon pnt a liner into nnsaf e
territory, Bassett freezing it tight. Slugger
Carroll went c t from Denny to first. Bassett
fooled away a chance on Beckley by juggling a
grounder.but he put him out a mome nt later on
A2T ATTEMPTED STEAI.
In the second Pittsburg soared one, Mc
Geachy muffed Dnnlap's fly and Denny's low
throw to first on MUIer'sgroundergave "Habo"
a life. Maul's fly out to right put Danlap on
third and Miller stole second neatly. Kuehne
made a lucky sacrifice which bounded just out
of Whitney's reach, and Danlap scored. Smith
ont from Denny to first.
Indianapolis was lucky enough to secure two
more in the third. Seery took first on Smith's
fumble. Glasscock's clean hit advanced him
to second, and Denny's two-bagger scored both
runners. McGeachy flew out to light and
Denny was fielded out while foolishly trying to
steal third. Daily retired the side by an out at
In the fourth inning Pittsburg's luck re
turned, and the club added two to its score.
Dunlap hit safely to center and Miller ad
vanced him to seenn 1. Maul hit to center and
Dunlap scored. Kuehnc's sacrifice advanced
Miller to third and Smith's sacrifice scored
Miller. Galvin struck out, the crowd yelling
in great derision. Some lault was f ound with
the umpire In this Inning on the part of In
dianapolis. It was claimed that Whitney was
fielded out at first on the umpire's bad judg
ment. It was in the fifth inning that Indianapolis
got in her great work. Galvin was injured. It
occurred in this way: Hines knocked a terrific
hot grounder ti Garvin. He attempted to stop
It by closing up hlsMegs and ankles with his
feet. The ball struck him savagely on the
ankle almost knocking him down, and com
pletely disabling him. He was forced to retire
lrorattre, game immediately. He will be laid
.v for som.- time-Staley. who was very ef
fective in the box j csterday. was substituted,
bnt tbeUoosiers batted him as freely as they
did Galrin. The Hoosiers felt somewhat
AFIJAID OF GALYTN
before he was hurt, as be has the reputation of
being among the king pitchers of the League,
but they seemed to comprehend lis curves and
batted him at will. In this inning the Hoosiers
BCorcdTand the most terrific batting of the
day occurred. Beery fouled out to third.
Glasscock was given bis base on a hit pitched
ball, and Denny's hit sent bun to second, both
advanced on passed balk McGcachy's sacrifice
tallied Glasscock, and Dally was given abase
on balls. Galvin here met with his mishap and
he was helped off the field.
Flay resumed with Staley In the box. Bas
sett took first on balls, filling the bases, and
Schoneck bit safe, scoring two runs. Schoneck
stole second. Whitney hit sharply to first, who
fumbled, and Schoneck scored while Whitney
was stealing second. Seery's single tallied
Whitney. Glas-cock retired the side by a fly
to left. In the sixth nothing ot interest oc
curred and neither side scored. In the
next the game was at another
exciting point, Indianapolis capturing
five and the visitors almost as lucky. Bassett
flew to right. Schoneck flew to left Whitney
hit safe. Carroll muffed Seery's fly. Glass
cock was hit br the pitcher and. then Denny
cleared the bases with a home run, scoring
four. McGeachy was hit by the pitcher, stole
second and third and scored on a passed ball.
Daily hit safe, but was caught stealing by Dun
lap, who made a remarkable one-band catch.
Visitor Staley died from Basses. Hanlon hit
safe, got second on a passed ball and scored on
Bcckley's single scored Carroll. Dunlap flew
to Basset. Miller made a home run to left,
scoring Beckley. Maul made a two-bagger,but
Kuehne flew to Hines. Four was added to
Pittsburg's score. During the seventh inning,
the Hoosiers having secured a strong lead,
Whitney let down and allowed Pittsburg to
secure 11 of the 15 hits. Interest In the game
seemed to flag after the seventh inning. The
Hoosiers grew careless, and Pittsburg added
five in the two concluding innings, but they did
not play with their usual vigor and alertness.
Miller, Dunlap and Smith led the visitors In
the remarkable batting of the day, while
Denny, Seery and Glasscock are entitled to
special mention as doing the same for the home
team. Denny's work was remarkable: ont of
six times at the bathe got six hits, one of them
being a two-base and another; a home run.
Whitney, who was in the Horsier box, was
very effective. The visitors, for the must part,
were totally unable to hit him or guage his de

AN ABSURD RUMOR,
Secretary Scandrett Talks About the Lscal
, Al Scandrett, the secretary of the local ball
club, and who is probably the most truthful of
ficial in the organization, made the following
"We are really done releasing now and the.
reports to the effect that Hanlon and Sunday
are figured on as being on the list of available
men to release are'absurd. Ot conrse we don't
Intend to and never figured on releasing either
of these men. Either of the men will make a
winning element in a team and it is not fair for
anybody to write a line that will tend toward
discouraging them. I think we can beat Bos
ton ont ana if we do that bow are we going to
be lower than fonrth? Our full strength las
'sot yet been shown."

The McKoesporta Havo n Plcnlo In Their
ISFZCIAI, TELXOIUM TO IM DtSrATCR.1
McKeesport, Pa May 4. Baseball takes
aswellinMcKcesport as in Pittsburg. Fully
1,000 persons assembled at tbe baseball park
this afternoon to see the game between the
Oakland, Pittsburg, club and the home nine.
The audience expected to see the tightest game
since the league season opened, but was disap
pointed. Oakland's battery was slugged to
death, and although changed at intervals the
clnb fared no better. The scon was 20 to 1 at
tbe close of the ninth inning in favor of Mc
Keesport. Oakland played as well as it could
and must be credited with a fair battery,
.but the club is weak generally and
would have been whitewashed bnt for
one man, who went to first on balls,,
scoring on a ridiculous error nude by a
member of tbe home team. Up to the seventh
inning the visitors had no runs. lathe second
inning Callahan, ot the home clnb, pitched
three balls, each of which was hit by a differ
ent batter and fell into the hands of a member
of the McKeesport club, putting Oakland out.
This seldom occurs. Berger, of Pittsburg, the
new-catcher of tbe home team, is considered
the best in the league. Torreyson's crack club
isastrongone and will hustle the East End
Athletics Saturday next. The club has not lost
a game and knows that one obstacle between
it and the pennant Is the Athletics, and will
endeavor to defeat the club. Taylor, the um
pire, gave good satisfaction to both the clubs
and the public The score by innings is appended:

SPECIAL TELIOBAM TO TUX DISPATCH.1
WA8HIHGT0N, May i-The National Jockey
Club spring meeting came to a close to-day.
The weather was as pleasant as any one could
wish for, and was quite a contrast compared
with the fire preceding days. The grand stand
was nearly filled with people, two-thirds of
whom were ladies, who no doubt' came out to
see the gentlemen jockeys ride in the steeple
chase, and they were well repaid. It was as
pretty a race as will be witnessed during tbe
meeting. The gentlemen riders handled
their mounts better than the professionals
have done during the week. The two
Hays brothers were the favorites, as they bad
both finished first and second on Thursday, but
the tables were turned to-day. The five horses
took the sixth jump in front of tbe grandstand
as near abreast as could be possible. It was a
grana signs hi see au me norses rise m the air
nearly at once after running about a mile and
a halt a sisht that is seldom witnessed, but as
they landed on tbe opposite aide or the earthen
wall the two Hays boys, the pets of 'the ladies,
camo to grief at the same time, both horses
turning almost a complete somersanlt. Strange
to" sav. however, neither gentlemen were in-
iared. Tbe rider of Liberator, catching his
orso quickly, remounted and started in pur
suit of the more fortunate ones, hut he had
lost too much ground and was unable to reach
the two leaders. The third horse havine re
fused the water jump.
The meeting has not been as successful, as
the managers deserve, but as the weather was
to blame, ther have no one to complain against.
The most of the stables will go from here to

THE LOUISVILLE MEETING.
Interest In tbe Approaching Knees There
Louisville, May 4. The interest In the
coming spring meeting of the Louisville Jockey
Club Increases with the winners at Lexington
and Nashville. Hindoo Craft and stable com
panions arrived at the club's grounds this after
noon, and Sportsman, Once Again, Bootmaker
and the balance ot the Derby starters from
tbe Blue Grass section come in on Tuesday,
when the rush from both Nashville and Lex
ington will occur. It is not a question ot how
many horses will come to Louisville, but
whether the clnb can accommodate them, al
though it has 515 stalls.
Tbe Kentuckians have been aroused by the
fight of the bookmakers and others against
Lexington, an oespeciallytheLoulsville Jockey
Club; and Derby day, with its free
field, promises to eclipse all former
races. It is certain that Spokane,

are sanguine as to the result. That Knott will
be a favorite even is in doubt. One mile and a
quarter in 2.103 is no Derby gait, as they will
go from "Lend to eend," and tbe record will be
beaten if there is a good day and track.

Something About Donovan's Defeat Searlo
(BY CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
Londox, May 4. Copyright Racing men
in England are buffeted by a sea of doubt and
uncertainty. No season of recent years has
been so disastrous to tbe public as this. The
defeat of Wisemau for the Suburban was an
event of insignificance compared with the poor
running of Donovan in the 2,000 guineas.
These horses were both looked upon as
rivaling tbe Bank of England in solidity. There
mast have been something wrong with Dono
van, and probably the running lor the Derby
will shed a lot of light on the 2,000
race. It is a surprising thing that though
Enthusiast won the 2,000, Donovan is still fav
orite for the Derby, being backed at 2 to!
against Eldorado, the stable companion of En
thusiast, now second favorite at odds of 3 to 1
The Derby will be a more open race than was
at Orst supposed. Despite yards of newspaper
comments and an endless amount of investiga
tion. Donovan's defeat is still a mystery. He
was backed to win at 85 to 20 on him, and was
beaten by a horse which was beaten by Dono
van several lengths a week or so before. The
public Buspected trickery, and showed their
views of the race when the winner of one of
the most famous races In England passed the
winning post in complete silence.
People cannot make out why O'Connor's
backers failed to cover Searle's money for the
match on the Thames. The Australian will de
cline to start for England nnless the business
Is arranged at once, and everybody here is
waiting for news. O'Connor is regarded here
as he is at home, as Searle's only dangerous
rival, and the timidity of his backers is incom
prehensible. A Big Purchase.
