Chicago, May S. The Chicago sn3
Pittsburg teams playeda veryeven gamo to--
day, the visitors n inning in the last inning
bystrong batting. Staley pitched a -wonderful
gameand his fielding was very clever.
The Chicagos scored ia the first inniug on
Evan's double and a single by VwiHal-
.Pfefler opened the second with a terrific
drive for two bases to right, but was caught
at the plate a few moments later by a splen
did bit of fielding by Sunday, who "bandied
Flint's hard single to right. Pfelfer made
a three-bagger in the third but wa's doubled
up with Farrell on the latter's line drive to
Stalev. After the third inning the Chicago's did
riot get a man past second baje until the
ninth, when Duff scored on his hit, which
retired VanHaltien, and Carroll's juggle of
Anson's lone drive to left The visitors
conld do nothing with Krock until the fifth in
ning, when Fop Smith lifted the spUere over
the Congress street wall for a home run. This
tied the score.
WAXTNO "WITH A. TTM.
Then the boys in the yellow caps took heart
and began to play with a ran that made the
crowd cheer. Becklcy opened the sixth with a
safe hit, and stole second in a cloud of dust,
Dnnlap and Carroll were retired, but little
Miller got his base on balls. Knehne made a
vicious effort to break the tie, but his steaming
red-hot liner was pulled do-fro by Ryan, and the
side went out.
Pop Smith got in anotheT safe swipe in the.
seventh, but lie was forced out at second by
Staley. Sunday and Hanlon went out in order.
Dnnlap got away around to the third in the.
eighth inning on a double-barreled error by
Ryan and Carroll's sacnlice. Miller, however,
failed to bring the runne r in.
The More stood 2 to 1 In favor of Chicago
when the visitors came to the bat in the ninth.
"Vc want two runs," yelled Miller in a hoarse
and offensive voice. Emperor William Kuchne
was the hrst man at t he bat. He caught the.
ball on the ground floor and tore the shingles
off. It went over the "ence. and the fat man
from the Monongahela loped around tho dia
mond amid tnmultuou j yelling. Smith struck
.out. Staley hit for rt base, and then Sunday
cracked one of Krock' 8 Gotlieb Hohenhanser
pretzel curves pretty nearly to the clubhouse.
The sprinter got two bases on this hit, and
Staley went to third.
AS EXCrjTXCf CEIS1S.
The crisis was so great that men sweat and
got up on their seats. Eanlon popped up a
short fly to left. YanHaltren started after the
ball, but slipped. H e recovered himself, how
ever, and made another dash for the ball. Far
rell was running, too, and just as the ball was
in reaching distance the fielders collided and
both went down. Farrell caught the ball, but
before he could get upon his feet Staley had
crossed the plate with the winning run.

CORTEZ IS A GOOD ONE.
Ono of Sam Brawn's String Comes In Pint
at the Fimlico Meet.
SPECIAL TILEOBAM TO THI DtSPATClt.l
Baltimore, May 8. Colonel Sam started
two horses at the Pimllco races to-day. Brown
Charlie and Cortez. Brown Charlie ran a very
creditable race, but only finished third. He
and Sam Harper made the race hot until the
stretch was reached, when ex-Governor Bowles
Belle Dorr came up with a rush and beat both at
me wire in tne Dest time yet made
East this season. Cortez started in the Vernal
sweepstakes, and he beat his field horses
so easy that horsemen say it was not a good
gallop for him. He was well backed in all the
poolrooms in the country. Cortez promises to
be one of the best 3-year-olds in training, and
unless he should go amiss, will show his heels
to some of Dwyers' and Withers' crack S-year-olds
in some of the big stakes at Brooklyn the
latter part of this month. He is a big chestnut,
by King Alf onso-Invercauld, and as fine a look
ing colt as there is at this track.
Considerable dissatisfaction was found at
Wyndom Waldon's action by tho bookmakers
to-day. Mr. Waldon gave it out that Little
field would ride Mucilage in the Claybaugh
Memorial stakes, and it Is said bis friends
auietlv backed Homeonathv. his nlhpr starto,.
Just before the race Littlefield was substituted
for Rlfleshine, but the guileless public had al
ready placed their money on Mucilage. As
soon as they discovered the shift of the jockeys
Homeopathy suddenly became a hot favorite,
the public backing the filly to save thelrmoney,
but as sometimes the best laid plans go wrong,
both Wyndom's friends and the public came to
grief in this instance. Tom Finley, the out
sider in theTace. and Father Daly's Mamie
B were runnm; neck and neck in the
stretch. when Littlefield undertook to
bring Homeopathy through with a rush.

Louisville, May 8. The races of the Louis
ville Jockey Club spring meeting are run to
morrow. Tho weather is fide and the track in
excellent condition. There has been no rain
for a week and the sprinklers must be used
freely. For the first time in the history of rac
ing here, there were no pools sold to-night on
the races, but this was merely a concession by
the Louisville poolrooms to the jockey club
management who will sell at the track to
morrow and will probably open a place to sell
in the city.
The Derby remains an open race. Proctor
Knott is in noble form, and by many the race
is conceded to him. But there are strong 3-year-olds
to contest and when he wins, If win
he does, it will be the greatest race by the
greatest race horse on the American turf.
Come-to-Taw will not start, and it is donhtfni
if Castaway does. Cassias may, though there
is some doubt Entries for to-morrow's races

of striking out the items ior the purchase of

When the bill came back from the Senate

Habbisbueg, May 8. This morning the
House confirmed the work of yesterday's
Democratic and Bepublican caucuses by
elect'ing Messrs. Taggart and Wherry mem
bers of the new Revenue Commission. Later
Mr. Wherry voted for the Y. M. C. A. incor
poration bill and thereby angered the Cajholic
members, for the reason that the bill provides
that Y. M. C. A. trustees must be Protestants.
This afternoon Captain Hassett moved to re
consider the vote by which the Commissioners
were elected, and In doing so made a bitter at
tack on Mr. Wherry. He wanted Mr. Wherry
put on tne commisslonnrst because he had
said on the floor of the House he was against
it and had opposed it; and, second, because in
his opinion Mr. Wherry is not a Democrat
Captain Skinner won the applause of the
House by his earnest defense of Mr. Wherry,
in which ho spoke'in the highest terms of
praise of that gentleman's ability. Mr. Fow
also won applause for his vigorous defense of
Mr. Wherry's Democracy. Both times Repub
licans joined even more heartily than the
Democrats. The vote against Captain Hassett's
motion was practically unanimous.
"A fakir of morals," was one of the terms
applied by the Captain to Mr. Wherry, who sat
in his seat and Bmiled while it was going on.

Phcadblphia, May 8. Although
Chester Springs Orphans' School has been
under new management since Christmas
last it has by no means been purged of its
imperfections. Corporal punishment is less
frequent than it was six months ago, but the
vigor of its execution makes up for what is
lacked in frequency. One of the most fla
grant acts ot injustice occurred recently,
when a large body of pupils were punished
for the fault of the few. The chastisement was
administered by a strong youth with a
hickory stick soaked in water. In addition
to this punishment they were compelled to
sorub the sitting room floor every night for
two weeks after the other boys had retired.
At the same time another lad was given a
merciless thrashing for pilfering two pos
tage stamps from one of the teachers'
Visitors to the school hare been much
moved by the sight of a little girl 13 years
old, who is suffering from a loathsome blood
disease, which appears in horrible form upon
her face and limbs. During the winter she
was for a great part of the time kept in a
room by herself, which no one but the nurse
was allowed to enter save on rare occasions.
Several weeks ago tie nurse, whose room is
near by, was awakened by violent scream
ing, and hastening to the little one's bedside
louna that rats had been gnawing at her ear,
which was bleeding profusely.
The methods of punishment for small
offenses are various and peculiar. For idle
ness, inattention or breach ol military dis
cipline, the boys are made to spend the half
or whole of their holiday in scrubbing
floors, washing clothes, sawing wood, doing
kitchen work or performing other tasks of a
domestic nature. A word let fall during
military drill is rewarded with a rever
berating slap. Boys have been set
at scrubbing the floor when it
L was so cold that their fingers grew red and
rigid, and the water froze upon their
brushes. One of the favorite modes of pun
ishment in the girls' department is sewing
carpet rags after the obedient pupils have
retired. It has been said that girls have
been kept up as late as 3 a.m. employed in
this manner. The officers of the school ad
mit some of the charges, but say punish
ment is absolutely necessary.

The Best -are Blade From Sheepskin br tl
"I wonder if there are many baseball
twirlers who are awar? of the fact that
tanned horse hide is being extensively used
for baseball covers, and that it is really a
most serviceable article," said Archibald
Eraser, the Reade street leather manufac
turer, to a New York Evening Sun reporter
"A Philadelphian has a monopoly of tan
ning these hides. Like the sheep and calf
hides used for this particular purpose, they
are all alum tanned. Sheep covers are the
most popular, and our American sheep pro
duces a much better covering for a baseball
than does the English sheep. The sheep
raised in Michigan are for some reason the
best producers of baseball leather.
"The best American mutton comes to the
New York market "We visit the butchers
in the various markets to purchase tho
sheepskins removed from their best stock.
Second quality skins are of no use in mak
ing serviceable baseball leather. After the
wool is removed the hides are then tanned.
Should they require coloring aniline dyes
are used lor the purpose."
