League game between the East End Athletics
and the McKeesports. The came was an ex
citing one, as the two teams are each confident
of winning the league pennant. The local club
won, however, and the contest was well fought.
Tbe pitching of Olirei was too much for the
McKeesports, and that was their great stum
bling block. The McKeesport pitchers were
rapped hard. Following is the full score:

The Riverside Grnrs Defeat the Sewlckleys
In n Good Game.
There wai a splendid attendance at the game
between tht Riverside Grays and theSewick
leys at Recreation ParK yesterday. If every
game of the County League was as productive
of enthusiasm as yesterday's the League
couldn't be other than successful. The Grays
won by only one point in as close and brilliant
a contest as one would wish to see.
The brightest feature of tbe game was, un
doubte iy, tbe second base play of Johnston, of
tbe Grays. His work at times was brilliant.
Wausmand's catching was alsolgood. and New
"barfs -ase running was of a high class.
Naughton played a great game for tbe Sewick
leys and wielded the stick with great effect.

NOT PAID PLATERS.
InnagerTorrerson Explains the Status of
McKeesport, Pa, May 11, 1889.
To the Sporting Editor of The Dispatch:
, Deae Em In your Issue of to-day I notice
fan article that Intimates that the McKeesport
lino IS composed of players who are salaried
Keen, and as this is not the case I would like If
jyou would make a contradiction of the article,
M there Is only one man in our club who gets
anathlngfer his playing; and he gets J6 per
fame; all the rest play for nothing, except that
toey are to share half the profits (if there is
any) at themd of the season, which is some
thing the other dabs also do, if there is any
balance. There has been abont $1,300 spent on
our Grounds, and as that amount win hardly be
made this season, yon will see that tbe players
are really playing for nothing. Four of oar
players hare played in minor leagues,bnt three
of them graduated from our club, and there is
no reason that some people should be jealous
of our club because it has been a success so far
this season. Hoping you will place us before
the public in onr true light, I remain.
Yours Tery truly,

The experimental coke pvea at Mansfield,
Pa., has proved an undoubted success. In It
the finest quality of coke has beerrburned, and
a charge has been drawn in less than 10 min
utes. This oven is of the bee-hive type, with a port
able bottom, which is raised and lowered by
Cut No. L
Cut No. 1 represents the oven while buraise
coke, and on tho track is standing the truck
which is used for conveying the portable bo
torn to and from the oven.
Cut No. 2.
When the coke is ready to be drawn from the
oven, the doors are raised (as shown in Cut No.
2). the truck is run beneath the oven to receive
the bottom, which is lowered by bydraullo
pressure. The loaded truck is then hanled out
to the yard. and. after being watered, a band
chain is placed around the coke which la
drawn off the bottom by a horse.
Cut No. 3.
The third cut shows the portable bottom
which has just bee n emptied and 1s ready to be
hauled back to the oven and raised to its place
by hydraulic pressure, to receive a new charge.
This system of watering the coke outside the
oven permits the oven to retain its heat and
allows the burning of four charges per week,
whereas by tbe old system but three charges a
week can.be burned.
The truck shown In Cut No. 1 can be used
for any number ot ovens by having a main
track laid in front of the ovens with a switch
to each oven.
Under the old system one man draws three
ovens per day, while under this new system
two men and a horse can draw 60 ovens per
day. Some of the most experienced and prac
tical coke burners pronounce the new system a
great success. A company with capital stock
of 550,000 has .been formed to introduce the
Adams Portable Coke Oven Bottom. Any in.
formation concerning the merits of this coke
oven will be freely furnished by
