How They Stnnd,
The following table shows how the clubs
stand in the .National League race. Pittsburg
is not getting any higher, but there is a conso
lation in the fact that it is not getting lower.
Ot conrse, there is not a degree much lower to
cet than the one occupied by the local team.
Boston still leads, but chiefly because other
clubs are out of condition, following is the

THE COTJXTY LEAGUE.
A Fine Gitrae Won by the Brnddocki at
One of the finest games played in the County
'League series and which will hardly be eclipsed
dnnng the 6eason in this League was played at
Recreation Park 3 esterday between the Rwer
side Grays and the Braddock Blues. It was a
pitchers' battle throughout the game, in which
Baker excelled, the Grays only having one hit
off his delivery, and that was made by Retzel
intbeourth inning. Dillon also pitched In
great L fiaT'only giving the Braddocks three
-lta. The fielding on both sides was sharp, and
two or three times it looked as if both sides
would score, but by some of the finest fielding,
very rarely witnessed, the sides were retired.
In the tenth inning, with two men out, Shields
reached first on a hit, stole second and third,
and came home on a passed ball. Following is

A HOT ARGUMENT.
McKeesport Beats the Dnqnesnes in Ten
rtrECUU. TELEOKAM TO THE DIBIATCH.1
McKeesport, Pa., May 25. The most ex
citing and the hardest fought game of ball of
the season was the ten-inning game of this
afternoon between the Dnqnesnes and the Mc
Keesports, of the Connty League, in which the
Dnqnesnes were defeated by S to 4. It was a
closer game than that with Uniontown. and
the one score was only secured through hard
playing. In the ninth inning a tenth was
necessitated by the visitors making a rcn and
tieing the score. McKeesport rolled it up one
more, and would hare made it two bnt for an
accident, by which a man fell and lost his run.
The Dnquesne team is a rattler, and McKees
port now knows that it will have uphill
work in looking after the pennant when
playing this club and the Athletics. Shamus
deserves the name of being a strong man in the
box, while there appears to be no flies" on
Miller. Both men pitched excellently and the
batting was about even. The f eature of the game
was the double turn backward foul catch be
hind the bat of Hartman, one of the best all
around players in the League, and the fine f onl
catch of Danachy. who was on third. Both
clubs plaved evenly and put up a game that
excelled any ever played here and was wit
nessed by a very large audience. Score:.

Tho East Enders Wlpo Up the Diamond
The East End Athletics fairly wised up the
ground with the Emsworth aggregation yester
day afternoon at Liberty Park. The features
of the came were the pitching and batting of
Donahue, who pitched an excellent game with
the disadvantage of a very sore arm. Five of
the eight hits made off his delivery were se
cured after tho side should have been retired.
Tener and Oliver also pounded the leather in
a way which made the .Emsworth outfielders
weary, while Gray and Laner simply hit out
near the fence every time they came to the bat.
Donahue was relieved by Oliver at the begin
ning of the eighth inning, as Donahue's arm
troubled him. The Athletics now lead in the
race, with six games won and nono lost,

The Brooklyns and the Babies Hare a
COLTTMBUS, 0 May 25. (The Columbus Club
opened with the Brooklyns on the local grounds
to-day. The air was cold and the attendance
LOOQ. The contest was close and exciting. The
features of the game was the excellont work of
Gastright in the box. Colnmbus lost through
poor base running. In the second inning the
game came very near closing over a decision of
the umpire. Goldsmith. With one man out
Visner secured a base n balls, stole second
and was called sale on ti"iird. When Orr, tho
Columbus captain, protested that Visner bad
been caught by two or three feet and
was fairly out, Orr refused to go
on with the came irith the decision
standing. Goldsmith ordered Orr back to first
and the game to proceed, bat a wait of about
20 minutes resulted. The umpire informed
Orr that unless he proceeded with the play he
would throw him out of the j-ame. After some
further words Ore was ordered oil the grounds,
and as no one was furnished to play first the
game was given to Brooklyns 9 to 0.
After the men had left the ground the,
Columbus manager was consulted and the
Brooklyns agreed to finish the game if a man
was furnished to play in. Ore's place. This was
done and the game proceeded to a finish. The
views of -competent men who witnessed the
third base play are about evenly divided on the
correctness of Goldsmith's decision. Durine

was declared out Score:

Philadelphia, May 25. The University qf
Pennsylvania won the college championship by
defeating Harvard after a very one-sided
came to-day. Harvard batted first and eo de
structive was Bowler Patterson that he had
to be taken off in order to let the visitors make
some runs. His record was five wickets in two
overs without a rnn. It has never been
equaled In a first-class match in this city and
probably never In any other city. Harvard lost
their first six wickets for one run, and all the
interest was taken out of the game by this
After this the University played as they
pleased, sending in their batsmen in a most
novel order and winninc finally by one rnn and
one inning. Gnscom and Austrian carried off
the batting honors for their respective sides.
The score: Harvard, 27 and 102; University of
Bain prevented the Cincinnati-Louisville
game yesterday. '

Cincinnati, May 25. The sixth day of
the Latonia races was the worst, as far as
weather goes, of the meeting. It has rained
every day so far, bnt not enough to make
the track muddy. To-day there was a driz
zling rain during the afternoon which made
the track quite sticky and slow. There were
three dumps in the programme, but some
how the talent got on and played small
amounts in the books which did not hurt
the bookers very much. The- third race was
won by Haviilah, a 10 to 1 shot, and the
fourth race by Leontine, a 15 to 1 shot,
while Tenacity, who won the Distillers and
Brewers' stake, was selling at 6 to 1 in
the books. Good odds were laid, against all
of the winners. The attendance was the
largest of the meeting, which can be ac
counted for by the announcement that Spo
kane was going to run, but his owner
scratched him before the race.

London, May 25. Copyright. 1 London and
England generally, are more interested in the
great racing event of the year, the Derby, than
in all other things put together. The average
dinner party customarily winds up with the or
ganization of a pool for the winner of the
Derby, in which men and women take shares,
and betting isalready very heavy.
Donovan, the favorite, received his reputa
tion in the Newmarket stakes, winning easily
against bis stable companion, Turcophone, who
is also owned by tbe Duke of Portland. En
thusiast who was beaten by Donovan at Leices
ter, and then beat Donovan in the two thousand
guineas, was beaten a long way from home at
Newmarket His win at Newmarket had made
him a firmer favorite than before: he is now
backed at 100 to 80. Pioneer did not race in
tho Newmarket stakes, as he has met with a
slight accident and is being reserved entirely
for tbe Derby. The stable hope they may be
able to turn the tables on Donovan.
Donovan is but 8 years old. yet he has won
already 33,000 in stake for his owner. He has,
moreover, a chance of winning this year the
Eclipse stakes of 10,000, the Lancashire plate
of 12.000, the Derby of 6,000 and the St Leger
of 5.000, so that, with good luck and along
life, Donovan may look forward to dying a
millionaire stake winner and thus beat all pre
vious records, so far as race horses are con
cerned, AMATEUR GAMES.

ST. CLAIR'S ASSAILANTS AEEESTED.
The Wllklnsburg Robbers Captured la a
House In BIcKeesport.
The two men who are thought to have
robbed and shot James St Clair at his store
in WilkinsDurg last February, were arrested
yesterday. Their names are James Burns
and Harry Brill. They were arrested at
the house of Jack Williams at McKeesport.
Williams was also arrested.
At the time Mr. St. Clair was shot his
death .was expected for several days, and as
the burglars could not be found, a reward of
$300 was offered for the arrest and convic
tion of the men who committed the deed.
A number of persons were arrested on sus
picion, but they were released.. As time
wore on Mr. St." Clair recovered, and the
matter was gradually forgotten by all ex
cept the detectives who were after the re
ward. About a month ago a young man named
Patrick Brown was arrested for train jump
ing at Coraopolis. On his person was found
a large number of articles of jewelry, which
he said had been given him by a man
named John Burke, who was afterward ar
rested. Brown was sent to the workhouse.
It was found that the jewelry had been
stolen in a town in West Virginia. At
Burke's trial his connection with
Jack Williams, of McKeesport, was discov
ered, and secreted in Williams' house
was a lot of the plunder taken from the same
store. Constable McClure, of McKeesport,
succeeded in.findipg out that the two men
there were the men who had robbed St
Clair and then shot him. The stuff they
had taken from St. Clair's store was thrown
into the Monongahela river under the belief
that St. Clair was dead and they feared ar
rest. Williams is a coal miner and has a wife
and six children at McKeesport.

The anti-prohibition meeting in Odd Fel
lows' Hall, Southside, last night, was at
tended by over 300 voters. Andrew Stock,
of the Twenty-seventh ward, presided.
William Walls, ex-Councilman from the
Twenty-seventh ward spoke for over an
hour, during which time he handled the
prohibitionists and their cause with hard
gloves. 'He said: "Prohibition has been
tried. It has been weighed and found
wanting. It has created an army of
spies a lot of lazy, indolent men and wo
men, who do not want to work for an honest
living. Thev claim to be representatives of
Law and Order. But they have slandered,
robbed, condemned and belittled honest
men through their influence. These men
are nothing less than fanatics and they argue
"This is a great petticoat campaign. The
women like to preach and make long
prayers. Many men would not follow such
a campaign. They say they have the
churches with them. But the best theolo
gians in the country have declared them
selves against prohibition.
Prot George Pfeisterer, musio teacher in
the Birmingham Turnverein, spoke in
German. He said the prohibition amend
ment is a heavy cloud that threatened the
social world, and predicted utter destruc
tion ot the civil and religious liberties of
the citizens should it be allowed to pass.
Francis E. Carroll, also made a few re
marks. INJDEED ABOUT THE PACE.

head and tried to check him, but lost his
hold and was thrown on the stones, sustain

Don't jump at conclusions too quickly. Read this through. Notice the
arguments we use and then make up your mind WHICH CLOTHING- HOUSE
IN PITTSBURG IS LYING. We don't start off by quoting a lot of funny
sayings, and then credit ourselves with them. The boot's on the other foot,
for look through the papers any time you will, you'll see our methods copied
and our advertisements stolen bodily. We don't delude the people (as a cer
tain house in this city does) bv working the "SYMPATHY DODGE" of being
here 25 years. So they have been here that long, rolling up their wealth like
the surplus of the U. S. treasury and laughing in their sleeves all the time how
they are completely hood-winking the people with their old war take prices.
The P. C. C. C. has been here five years, and thanks to their honest and fearless
methods, are day by day and inch by inch increasing their popularity with the
public. Looking on from afar THESE OLD-TIME 60 PER CENT CLOTHIERS
are becoming scared (as the common saying is) and resort to the "SYMPATHY
DODGE." The P. C. C. G. ARE HERE, INTEND TO STAY HERE, and watch
how they are going to make these old .time CHATHAM STREET clothiers
dance to the tune of honest methods and low prices. We'll stake our reputa

H. Sellers McKee left last evening for
Philadelphia, to be gone several days, on
private business. While at the Union sta

the tank iurnace at Jeannette, andsaid they
wonld tire the other tanks as soon as they
could. He said:
The report that we would run our works dur
ing the summer is not true. Of course we
would like to run all the time, if we could, but
we cannot afford to get into a fight with the
Window Glass Workers' Association or the
Manuf ucturers' Association. The tank we are
working now holds over TOO tons of glass. To
allow this large batch ot glass to simmer and
cool during the summer would entail serious
loss upon us, but notwithstanding this we will
have to close down with the others.
To attempt to run would only cause a fight,
