THOSE AWFUL ERRORS.
The Home Talent's Mistakes Give the Phil
lies a Game.
' rSFECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATC1I.1
( Philadelphia, May 28. The Philadel
phias won their first game of the season from the
Pittsburgs to-day, and a more stubbornly
fought contest has not been seen on the local
grounds this year. The home team started off
with two runs in the first inning, and shut out
the visitors for eight innings, when the latter
got the hang of Casey's delivery, and hammered
out enough runs to tie the score just as the
4,000 people were ready to depart for their
homes. For eight innings Casey was invincible,
only seven scattering hits being secured off his
delivery. Staley also proved effective up to the
- tenth, when the local men got the hang of his
- curves and rapped out enough runs to win the
game. For nine innings he kept the Phillies
down to seven hits, but in the tenth they hit
hiui for three singles and two doubles.
SOME GOOD PLAYING.
. The visitors played an errorless game after
the first inmnjr.and as a result some very clever
fielding was witnessed. The local men were
very fortunate In their work, as only two of
their eight errors proved eostly. The press and
public have made repeated demands on the
'Philadelphia management for the reinstate-
(inen of-Captain Irwin, of the local team, and
o-dan- tb request was granted. The change
didubtprcve as gratifying to Irwin's friends
"as the lattcsUiad hoped for, but, when the fact
is taken intoponsideration that the player was
nervous and overanxious, the errors he made
'Will be overlooked. Philadelphia scored
TWO TJXEAESED RUNS ,'
in the first inning on two singles and errors of
Miller, Dunlap and Kuehne. After that up to
the ninth inning the contest was dull and unin
teresting. Philadelphia was retired in the
ninth, and then Pittsburg made a desperate
effort, which tied the score and made the spec
tators nervous. Staley ledofwithahit,and Sun
day hit to Hallman, who threw the ball in time
to catch Staley at second, but Irwin dropped
the baU. Hanlon sacrificed to Farrar, advanc
ing each runner a base; Beckley sent Thompson
a long fly, and Staley crossed the plate on the
throw to the plate. Maul hit into center for a
base, and Sunday crossed the plate with the

Dunlap flew out to Thompson, and Philadel
phia came in for its turn at the bat.
Wood struck ont and Clements hit Into center
lor two bases. Fogarty drove the ball into
center for a base and Clements scored. Thomp
son fouled out and Mulvey sent Fogarty home
on a two-bagger into left; Farrar bit for a base
and Mulvey came home on the hit. Irwin hit
safely, but Farrar was caught at second. Pitts
burg then came in for some fun. Miller,
Kuehne and Smith each hit for singles, the
former scoring on the litter's hit. Staley
fouled ont and Kuehne scored on Mulvey's
fumble. Smith attempted to score on Sunday's
steal of second, and was thrown out at the
plate. Hanlon struck out and the agony vias

7SPECIAL TELEGEAM TO THE DISPATCH.1
Boston, May 28. "Old Man Anse" has al
ready settled the League championship, and
of course he places the Chicagos on top. In a
little talk this morning he said that his team
ought to occupy a much better position than is
the case to-day. Playing away from home the
visiting club is apt to get the worst of it, both
in luck and from the umpire. So had it been
both in New York and Philadelphia. He
thought that his clnb was playing the best ball
in the League, and for that reason the present
state of things would not continue, and his
myrmidons would cross the tape first at the end
of the season.
The second place, so he thinks, will be be
tween Boston and Philadelphia, with the
chances in favor of Boston, on account of their
heavy hitting proclivities, and runs win games.
He thought that all three clubs, Chicago, Phil
adelphia and Boston, were capable of playing
better ball than New York, mid he thought the
Giants would have some difficulty in beating
Pittsburg and Cleveland. He said that in his
opinion last season the pennant was won by the
New Yorks simply by an overwhelming amount
of luck, but the work of this yea. would show
w here that club ought to be. ,
Will Keep Them All.
Speaking of the local team yesterday, Secre
tary Scandrcttsaid: "If the new pitchers prove
to be good men, I think we will carry ail the
seven pitchers we now have signed. It will be
some time before we need expect Morris and
Conway to do first-class work, and I anticipate
that the youngsters will have plenty of work
Barnle's Team Score an Easy Victory From
Baltimore, May 2S. Baltimore had an easy
time winning from tne Athletics to-day through
the tatter's weakness with the stick. Cunning
ham had the Quakers completely at his mercy,
and in the fifth inning retired the side on
strikes. Smith was batted freely. Stovey was

batted. McKeesport did some fine base steal
ing, but the features were the fine steal f

HERE'S A NOVELTY.
Two Artificial Limb Teams Will Flay
Recreation Park To-Day.
There will certainly be a baseball treat at
Recreation Park to-day well worth seeing.
Probably one of the most novel contests that
has been witnessed on the ball field 'will take
place. The two nines will be made up of play
ers who wear artificial limbs, and the fact of
such a contest certainly makes the possibili
ties of baseball 'a more interesting question
than ever. The players are all prominent citi
zens and have a very large following, so that a
good attendance may be expected. Curiosity
is also sure to attract a large number of out
siders"1 Certainly a game of the kind named is
worth patronizing. There will bo fun to
amuse and wonder to excite. Following are
the two team1::
Pittsburg Wooden Leg Club: W. H. Wolf,
pitcher: W. P. Chambers, catcher. The bal
ance will be: L. Shaw, G. Shaw, A, L. Gibson,
W. F. Sperlintr, J. V. Spatman.
Allegheny Ball Club: G. Barkley, pitcher; L.
F. Curletta. catcher. The balance will be:- W.
H. Burr, W.R, Cunningham, J.AV. Gorman, F.
B. Stanton. B. Ehreufeld, John Kirk, Thomas
Another noteworthy feature of the game is
the fact that "Gentle Jecins" Galvin has con
tented to umpire. Jimmy has been in active
training for his task.

MYER WANTS TO MEET M'AULIFFE.
He Doesn't Say He Could Whip Him, bat
Would Like to Try.
ISPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.I
New York, May 28. Billy Madden, Jack
McAuliffe's hustling manager, is very busy just
now. The pugilistic world may be treated to a
surprise at any moment in the way of a match
between the Brooklyn boy and some good man
in his class. A week ago Madden wrote Presi
dent Fulda, ot the California Athletic Club,
asking what purse they would give
for a fight between McAuliffe and
Myer, McAuliffe and Carrol, or
McAuliffe and Carney. Billy writes to .'ay that
Jack will fight any of the men named, first come
first served. It Myer won't fight to a finish be
fore he leaves for the West, McAuliffe will
make a match with him for a ten-round go.
This would draw a great house, and according
to a conversation which Myer bad with a re
porter of The Dispatch, he would be willing
to make such a match.
The Southern Athletic Clib of Los Angeles
asked Madden what purse McAuliffe would
meet Myer for, and Billy replied, "Anything
that suits Myer." Billy Myer, the Streatorlad,
will close his engagement with the theatrical
company with which he has been traveling on
Saturday evening. Jack Hopper having signed
m his stead for an 18-weeks' trip. Myer says
he will now devote his time in the endeavor to
get on a match with Jack McAuliffe. He was
seen by a reporter of The Dispatch and said,
among other. things: "I came on here to" see
the Eatern country, and entered on a
two weeks' contract with a company to help
deftay expenses. While here I paid a visit to
Mr Fox. and during a conversation with him
he asked me if I could whip McAuliffe. I said
I didn't know, but would try. He then offered
to bet $1,000 that I" couldn't, and, as I only had
$959 in my clothes. I planked down $500 as a for
feit for a match of '$2,600 with McAuliffe. I
told Mr. Fox that of course that this was my
own money, and that it had a string to it. but
that, when Jack showed np to cover it, my
backer would send on a check at once.
Bo I think 1 can defeat McAuliffe?
Well, now, I never said I could whip anyone;
but when in the ring I can fight for any man's
money. I would rather meet McAuliffe for S10
a side, and we could both fight without the
worrimentof losing many friends who would
most likely bet large sums of money."
Ex-Alderman P.it b arley, who is an ardent
admirer of the Brooklyn boy. said: "I will
back Jack to the extent of $1,000 in a fight to a
finish with Mj er at any tune. The match to be
decided within 200 miles of New York."
A fight between these two men would create
no end of interest in Eastern sporting circles.
OVER THE BAR HEAD FIRST.
A Running Jump by a Boy That
ISPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
New York, May 28. A lft-year-old boy in
Newark has given the authorities on athletics
something to ponder over. At the recent
games of the pupils of tho Newark Academy
he won the medal for the best running high
j amp. He cleared a bar S feet and 1 inch above
the ground, and he has since done 3 Inches
better, but his manner ot getting over the
stick is novel, and although he re
ceived the medal for the best achievement
in the class, others who were behind him bave
entered protests, and Mr. W. B. Curtis, of the
Spirit of the Times, has been appealed to for a
decision as to the regularity or legality of bis
method of high jumping. Bave is a well-built
boy, with clear bine eyes, and be looks two
years older than his record in the family regis
ter. In the games on Friday last be aston
ished the onlookers by making the running
high jump headforemost. He dived over the
stick at the 5 foot 1 inch mark, and landed first
on his hands and then on the back of his neck.
It was such an unusual feat that the Indues
did not know how to decide upon It. They con
sulted the rules for high jumping and could not
find that they prescribed now a contestant
should clear "the stick or string, orbpwhe
should alight, and in tho absence of any defini
tion they awarded Dave the medal. He says
he has not practiced the jump long, and he be
lieves that with a little more practice be can
excel W. B. Page's famous jump of 6 feet 4
inches in Philadelphia, October 7, 1887. He is
awaiting the decision with considerable anxiety,
and he will abide by it. ,

CrN'ciiraATi, O., May 28. The eighth
day at Latonia was the first day of the
spring meeting that it did not rain, although
the clouds looked threatening several times
daring the afternoon. The largest crowd of
the meeting was out, which can be accounted
for probably by the announcement that
Proctor Knott was to run in theHimyar
stakes. The race only had three starters in
it, and Come-to-Taw, with Isaac Murphy
up, won rather handily, while the once
great Proctor Enott, carrying only 110
pounds, with a stable boy in the saddle, was

It Goes Further.
A pound tin of Blooker's Dutch
Cocoa goes' further than the same
amount of cocoa so-called made by
any other manufacturer, and the
reason is plain. It is absolutely
unadulterated no starch, vanilla,
arrowroot or sugar enter into its
composition. It is made only of
the choicest and ripest cocoa beans.
True, it costs one dollar a -pound,
and the reason for this seeming
high price has been already given.
Be sure and add a package of
Blooker's Dutch Cocoa
to your order to the grocer when
going to the country' or seaside.

THE QUESTION THAT CONCERNS
ILL f Olli PEOPLE
the Easiest Way of Spend
ing Money, but the Easiest
Manner to Save It
Yon can readily enough find the means of
getting rid.of your money. The papers are
filled with insinuating columns of adver
tisements coaxing and tweedling you in
every manner to invest your earnings.
THE PUBLIC BENEFACTOR
Is the man who originates and introduces a
method making it a little more easy for the
poor to lay by a few of their hard earned
dollars that slip so easily through the
fingers. Bhal estate is the basis of
Pew fortunes have been made in this rap
idly growing country odours except through
the medium of increasing value in real
estate, and no one is more deserving of pub
lic approval than the man who brings real
estate within the reach of the poor.
About four months ago this firm obtained
control, by purchase, of the loveliest of all
the lovely spots along the Pittsburg and
'Western Railroad. It was but five miles
from the city limits, trains making the run
to the center of town in 26 minutes.
The work of surveying, .staking and,
grading streets was began, and the firm's
original plan of selling property, then en
tirely unknown in Pittsburg, was placed
before the public. This plan is made up of
To sell lots as near the original price of
the land as is consistent with a reasonable
profit and sufficient surplus to make all
To offer every possible inducement in way
of improved streets, yearly passes, free lots,
cash premiums, etc., etc., that can be made
to attract residents, as we .realize, if our
property is as good as others (and we think
it is, or would not have purchased it) near
a growing city. The only question is to
make it more attractive than others, and the
question of selling it is settled.
To make the first payment and subsequent
ones just as low as possible. In this we
have done something never known in the
history of real estate offered elegant prop
erty, as good as can be purchased anywhere,
and only ask 25 .cents to $1 50 first payment.
At this payment you obtain control of the
property, can build and improve imme
diately, in fact, have entire possession.
Another feature, we charge no interest and
pay all taxes until deed is given.
"When the sale was opened, and whole
pages in the different daily papers devoted
to explanations of our methods, disaster
was predicted and failure prophesied. Beal
estate men could not .appreciate that there
were hundreds of people anxiou3 to obtain
their own homes, to whom the ever increas
ing rents and expenses of growing families
make it difficult to accumulate the necessary
large payment required to secure lots under
the old system.
"What was the result? Over 800 lots were
sold in two weeks, and now over 20 new
houses are being erected, with others start
ing every week. Onr office was filled, and
at times we could scarcely accommodate the
people, and further, resulted in these same
firms imitating and copying our methods.
There are now only 100 lots left out of a
total, of over 1,000; they are among the
finest, however, that have been offered.
They are offered to you at the original
price of $25 to $150, are 25x100 feet, some
larger, and face on 40 and 50 feet avenues.
The-streets are all graded free of cost, and
graded well. Board sidewalks, three feet
wide, 'are laid on each and every street.
A railroad pass to and from the city, for
one year, is gien to all new residents of
Lots will be given to all schools and

amendments being as follows:

Constitution, to be designated as Article
Nineteenth, as follows:

sale, of intoxicating liquor, to be used as a
beverage, is hereby prohibited, and any Vl- -olation
of this prohibition shall be a misde
meanor, punishable as shall be providecDby
law. The manufacture, sale, or keeping for
sale, of intoxicating liquor for other pur-
poses than as a, beverage may be allowed in;
such manner only as may be prescribed byi
law. The General Assembly shall, at the-i'- -first
session succeeding the adoption of this -
article of the Constitution, enact laws,
with adequate penalties, for its enforcement.

"Whereas, In accordance with the pro
visions of the act of the General Assembly
of Pennsylvania, approved March 8, 18S9,
entitled, "An act prescribing the time and
manner of submitting to the people, for
their approval and ratification or rejection,
proposed amendments to the Constitution,"
the governor ot tbe Commonwealth has
issued a writ of election directed to the.
sheriff of Allegheny county, commanding
and requiring the said sheriff to give notice .
in the usual manner, in not less than two
newspapers in the said county and each
city thereof, that an election will be held
according to the terms of the Constitution
and the provisions of the said act of
the General Assembly at the usual
place for holding general elections in
each of the townships, boroughs,
wards, precincts and election districts
therein on Tuesday, the 18th day of
June, A. D. 1889, for the purpose of deciding-upon
the approval and ratification or re
