ALAS, POOR BEAM.
Quakers Say They Have Solved the
Nineteenth Century Mystery.
rsrxcui. tzxscbaic to thx dispatch.!
Philadelphia, May 29. Young Seam,
who claims Latrobe, Pa., as his home, and
his occupation as that of a baseball pitcher,
made his .Philadelphia debut to-day with
the Pittsburg team, which is down on the
cards as one of the mysteries of the nine
teenth century. It took cine of the Phila
delphia players just two innings to get the
hang of the young man's delivery, and then
they jumped onto him with both feet. It was
in the third inning when the slaughter began,
and then the entire nine came to the bat, two
ot them twice. Those of the local men who
did not hit him were sent to first on balls, and
when the smoke cleared away seven runs had
been scored on three doubles, two triples, three
bases on ball s. four stolen bases, and a muffed
sp.. .ball thrown hy Kuenne.

While the 'Pittsbarc men were being retired
In their half of the inning the local nine was
gathering its second wind, and in the fourth
they again lit onto -the ball for five singles,
which, -with a wild pitch, two stolen bases and
errors by Dunlapv Carroll and Kuehne, netted
five more runs. Beam pulled himself together
in the fifth inning and changed his pace from
a slow to a speedy ball, which puzzled the
home batsmen, and as a result but four singles
and a double were made during the balance of
Sanders and Schriver were "the battery for
Philadelphia, and both men never did prettier
work. For six innings the Virginian kept the
visitors down to four hits, whon he eased up on
his delivery, and was hit for three singles and
a double and a triple.
Of the game little can be said. It was one
sided, tedious, and utterly devoid of special in
terest, the only features being the battery
work of Sanders and Schriver, the fielding of
Sunday, Maul, Smith and Irwin, and the bat
ting of the locals In the third and fourth in

LOCAL BALL GOSSIP.
President Nlmlck Quietly Dliappeni
Samethlnir Abont Beam.
President H isuck left the city mysteriously
yesterday, and left everybody guessing as to
whether or not be had gone in pursuit ot more
new players. An official of the club, however,
stated that no more money is to be expended
' oa new players until those now engaged are
tested. The official also said that all engage
ments already made for players will be fulfilled
as far as the club is concerned.
Some baseball authorities conjectured that
atLKlmlck had gone to .Detroit and Buffalo to
see It an arrangement could not be made with
White and-fiowe. It Is thought that if ex
President Stearns, of Detroit, can be induced
to offer a little more than $1,000 each to Rowe
and Whtto ot their purchase money they will
come here. It Is, therefore, thought that Mr.
Nimlek Is tryine to accomplish the above ob
ject. On the other hand, it is said that the Presi
dent has jrono to Philadelphia to see the two
games to-day and have a talk with Phillips
about the team. This is a probable feature of
Beam's work in tho box- yesterday caused,
considerable disappointment among the local
cranks. The disappointment was the more in
tense because of the gushing words that bava
been said about the young man locally. This is
another instance of thoughtless and extrava
gant laudations of a youngster before he is
thoroughly tried. The Dispatch so far has
nothing to retract, but it is only fair to remark
that yesterday's game no more proves Beam a
bad pitcher than his victory at Washington
proves him a good one.

EAST LIBERTY ATTRACTIONS.
Two games That Promise to Be of the Live
There promises to be two interesting games
of baseball this afternoon at Liberty Park,
and the lovers of the national game will cer
tainly witness two fine contests if they will on
ly take the trouble to wander out in that direc
tion. Last year the Homesteads and the East
End Athletics were evenly matched and every
time they came together it was a signal for a
hard struggle on both sides. They broke even
on the championship series of four games by
each winning two and as this is the first game
of this season between these two clubs the com
ing game promises to be an interesting one.
The following is the make-up of the two nines
fer this morning's game. Manager Ed
wards is going to try another new pitcher, as
Donohoe sent him word this morning that he
was hardly able to raise his arm.

The afternoon game with the Braddocks
promises to be even more interesting as Man
ager Bair feels confident that he can defeat
Manager Edwards' pets with Gordon in the
box. and on the other hand Manager Edwards
is as equally confident that his sluggers will
iine-er-out off Gordon just as easily as off
Baker. Just what each side will do will be
proven to-day, but there is no doubt that
the contest will be a close and interesting
one. TheBraddock nine will bring quite a
large following with them and they will, no
doubt, make things interesting. Thomas
Zachariah, the well-known local umpire, will
umnire both contests and his work, no doubt.
will be quite a feature, as his umpiring on all
occasions has been very fine.

The Board of Pnrdons Recommends Com
mutation of Two Death Sentences to
Imprisonment for Life Samuel
Johnson Given tbe Ben
efit of n Doabt.
! EPXCIAL TELEOBAK TO TOT DISPAfCB.1
Haebisbtjbo, May 29. The Board of
Pardons late to-night unanimously recom
mended the commutation of the death pen
altyof Samuel Johnson, the murderer of
John Sharpless, in Delaware county, sev
eral years ago, to imprisonment for life.
The board gives its reasons at length for its
While the board cannot say that they have
no doubt of Johnson's guilt, yet it is not certain
that such serious doubts have been raised in
the minds of tbe board as would alone induce
them to recommend executive interposition,
but it is a fact shown by petitions and letters
of men of this State of highest standing and
greatest intelligence ana by numerous peti
tions filed with tbe board,embracing.the names
of nearly 5.000 citizens, that a very serious and
widespread doubt of the prisoner's guilt
has been produced in tho State, and with a
large number of people this doubt has grown
to a conviction of his innocence. The board
are convinced that this feeling is so strong that
the execution of the sentence would produce a
moral shock on the minds of many people, and
be regarded as a judicial murder. It
is importaut not only that the law
should be Justly and impartially executed
but that the people should believe and feel
that it is justly and impartially executed, and
the board base their recommenaation very
largely upon this widespread doubt of the guilt
of Samuel Johnson, which has been proved to
them to exist. In this connection they ex
pressly call attention to the representations of
Postmaster General Wanamaker, ex-Governor
Hovt, General Hajtranft, ex-Governor Pollock
and" many others in favor of commutation.
In conclusion the board says they are sot
satisfied that Samnel Johnson is innocent,
or they -would recommend his pardon. They
are not satisfied beyond all doubt that he is
guilty, or they would take no step to inter.
jere wiin me uue execution ot tne law.
They believe there are some grounds upon
which doubts of his guilt may rest, and do
rest in the mind of a very large portion of
this community, and that while such wide
spread doubt exists, and the further feeling
that possible future developments may in
crease this donbt or demonstration, his in
nocence remains in the minds of so many
people, the execution of the death penalty
is not advisable.
The board also recommended the com
mutation of the death penalty of Harriet
Burrows, of Philadelphia, who disembow
eled her husband, to imprisonment for life.
The case pf George Clark, of Greene coun
ty, was held under advisement. The appli
cations of Joseph Allen and Kose Hall, con-'
victed of keeping disorderly houses in
Pittsburg, were refused, and those of John
Brers, felony, and John K. Scott, felonious
assault and battery, held under advisement.
A pardon was recommended in the case of
Geprge Garland, for horse stealing in West

L Gbeehsburg, May 29. The counsel for
FranK Baer, who was to-day fonnd guilty
of complicity in the bnrning of the
Chamber's mill, will ask the court to grant
a new trial, and they state that good reasons'
can he presented. Should the motion be re
fused, there is a likelihood of the case being
taken to the Supreme Court, as A. W.
Baer, the father or frank, and M. L. Baer,
his brother, state they intend to push it to
the bitter end, firmly believing In, the face
of the testimony that Frank is innocent.
The verdict, however, is generally ap
proved by all who heard the evidence. The
other charge against Baer, that of burning
the Bnmbaugh mill, in which it is alleged
that Hetzel and Prancis were implicated,
has been continued until the August term.

SMITH NOT, U CUSTODY.
He Went to the Poller, but Was Not Behind
Chicago, May 29. The intimation in
several morning papers that WillardJ.
Smith may possibly know something more
of tbe Cronin case than is yet sus
pected brought that gentleman into
the city this morning from Riverside.
He went before Chief Hubbard and, after
again denying any complicity in the mur
der, at the suggestion of the Chief visited
the jail, and Detective Coughlin was
brought from his cell. The suspicion
against Smith rests on the fact that his
name is Smith; that hit cameorigin&lly from
Hancock, Mich., and that he does not give
a very straight account of his life in this
" Hello, Willard," said Coughlin, when
he was confronted by Smith.
"Hello, Dan," said Smith.
"Is this the Smitn yon meant when vou
stated that the buggy yon ordered at Dinan's
was for Tom Smith, ot Hancock, Mich., an
old friend who had since gone to New Mex

A Enllroad Fight In Connecticut Elects a
Member of the Committee.
rSFICIAL TETIOltAK TO TUX DISPATCH.)
,2Tsw Haven, Comr., May 29. Con
gressman. Carlos Pxench was elected a
member of the National Committee to rep
resent this State, to-day, and fill the
place left vacant by the death of
"William H. Barnum. The members of
the State Central Committee assembled
in the Tontine Hotel this afternoon.
There was considerable preliminary skirm
ishing, and there werei four acknowledged
candidates m the field, Gordon "W. Hull,
of "Wallingford; Henry A. Bishop, of
Bridgeport; Carlos French, of Seymour,
and Robert J. Vance, of New Britain.
The fight narrowed down to a skirmish
between Henry A. Bishop, purchasing agent
of the Consolidated Railroad, and Congress
man French. "William H. Stevenson, Gen
eral Manager of the Housatonic road
and President of the Derby, made a
vigorous opposition to Henry A. Bishop.
He spoke for about ten mmntes in his
most 'emphatic strain, and said that he
could tell, if he chose, some things about
Mr. Bishop that would lead the gentlemen
of the committee to doubt if he was as good
a Democrat as his friends wonld have the
committee believe. He himself knew Bishop
had lost the Fourth district to the Demo
crats last fall. Mr. Stevenson wanted to see
Robert J. Vance nominated.
On the tenth ballot Congressman French
was elected by a vpte of 11 to 10 against Mr.
Bishop. It was not expected that the rail
road fight would enter this question, but
when it was found that it had, the fight was
one of the most bitter ever seen in the mat
ter of local politics.
