THAT AWFUL INNING.

rErECXALTZLXGRAU TO TUXDISPATCH.!
Cleveland, O., June 6. The Pittsburg club
couldn't complain of the cordial reception they
met in Cleveland to-day. Over 3,100 people
were out to see them play and the applause was
cenerousfor the pretty fielding work they ex
hibited, but they were weak with the stick,
lamentably so, viewing the game from a Pitts
Mr.' Fessenden, a gentleman from the'East,
with, a voice a cross between a Lake Erie fog
horn and Ohio river steamboat whistle, called
"play" promptly at 4 P. JL, and the matinee
opened rather briskly on the part of the alleged
Infants. They started in with an evident de
termination to add one more in the column of
games won. Strieker was the first to grasp the

made a beautiful pickup, and the crowd
it. Then McAIeer patiently waited while
gave him a gift of first base and Mc-
followed in his wake, and after McKean
came a handsome floral piece that hoodooed
the batter.f or he retired on a foul fly to Kuehne,
and that was
A PEETTT CATCH ALSO.
In the meantime McAIeer had stolen second
owing to Miller's Inability to get the ball closer
to the base than center field and Twitchell
availed himself of the opportunity by smiting
the ball far out Into the field for a single, scor
ing McAIeer. Twitchell stole second while
Faatz was at the bat and attempted to score
on the short single to right, but was cut off two
yards from the plate.
Sunday struck out for the Pittsburgh Han
Ion flew out on a line bit, ana Beckley, whose
appearance the crowd awaited with fear and
trembling, fanned the wind also. Something
like a sigh of satisfaction was waftedupwardat
this satisfactory conclusion.
Bradford hit the second ball pitched in the
next Inning so far out into the left field that
calculations were going of a three-bagger.
Mr. Maul was out in that direction; he began
to run to the east, and when he stopped he had
the ball. It was a beautiful fly and the people
didn't forget him when he came in from the
Tebean made a base hit, a lucky one, too, and
Sntcliffe got first on balls. Beatin hit the ball
sharply to Dunlap and was doubled up with
Sutcliffe. Miller took a turn at waiting, and
four bad balls came to him, but Dnnlap's hit to
short doubled the barytone-voiced catcher and
the great second baseman. Maul just tapped
the ball slightly and it drepped gracefully into
Strieker's hands. Then came the third, and
Staley wishes now he had never seen the in
ning. The air was full of base hits and the
Cleveland players were calling them in.
THAT AWFUL XXSZXQ.
Strieker came up with a careless air, and
Staley thought he'd fool him by pitching a
straight one, but "Stack" gpt the langh on the
pitcher by hitting safe. One ball and two
strikes had been called on McAIeer, and just as
Strieker started to steal, McAIeer sent the ball
out into right field for a single. Strieker went
on to third, and while the fielders unsuccess
fully attempted to put him out, McAIeer
went down to second. McKean couldn't
get over the flowers and knocked
up a little one-cent fly to Dunlap.
Then Twitchell hit safely a second time.
Buns came in. Faatz followed with another
single, which Sunday fumbled long enough to
let Twitchell go to third. Radford gave Kuehne
a slow twister, and the third baseman couldn't
pick it up in time to throw the runner out.
This let Twitchell in. Tebcau's base hit scored
Faatz and Radford. Sutcliffe hit short, and
Smith threw wild, Tebeau going on to third.
Beatin's sacrifice advanced him a base.
Htricker smilingly lined the hall out safe lor
the second time, and two more runs came in.
Jl'AiEER ENDED THE FTTJT
by a hit to Smith, on which he was thrown out
at first. The Cleveland didn't score any more
during the game, and only hit safely three
times. In the fifth, after Miller and Dunlap
bad gone out, the latter, on a force-out by
Matd, theFittsburg left fielder started to steal
second; Sutcliffethrew to head him off, and the
ball .hit the batter's legs, going far out into left
and letting him score. In the eighth Dunlap
led off with a cracking single, Maul hit a diffi
cult ono which McAIeer would have pot, but
Strieker balked him. This let "Dunny"
scamper to third, and be scored on Smith's hot
long fly to McAIeer. The Uevelands' center
fielder made another circus catch, but he
couldn't throw in quick enough to cut off the
runner; Staley "truck out, leaving Maul at
first. Beatin pitched a wonderful game, and
Staley was effective in all but one Inning. Ban
Ion and Dunlap were roundly applauded when
they appeared on the field. The Pittsburgs
have made a good Impression here. "

Klmlck Still Confident.
President Kimlck and Al Pratt had a long
exchange of opinions yesterday regarding the
probable winner of the League pennant. Mr.
Pratt predicted that Chicago will come to the
front yet. President Nimick said:
"I still feel confident that Pittsburg will get
the pennant. The fact has been demonstrated
thatihe club can play better than any other
when in condition. When we get Conway.Mor
xis, Galvln, Staley and the best of tbn other
pitchers all going, we will not be long In getting
to the front?'
Scnndrett's View of It.
' Secretary Scandrett thinks that the majority
of ball players will be opposed to the abolition
of the graded salary plan. Mr. Scandrett ar
gues that if the plan is abolished snch high
priced men as Ward, Keefe, Eanlon and others
will demand high salaries, and this will cause
other players' salaries to be reduced.

THE COUKTT LEAGUE.
Riverside Grays Strengtheninc Up Secre
tary Bnrr's Renljrnntlon.
The Riverside Grays are making great efforts
to strengthen their team. They have signed
McKim and Marshall, second baseman and
rigbtfielder of the Emsworths, respectively.
The Grays will play the Braddocks on Satur
day. The Emsworths granted the releases of
the two players named above, but the team
docs not intend to disband. The players re
cently have apparently pulled themselves to
gether. There will be a meeting of the County Leagne
this erenlnc, when, as previously stated. Secre
tary Barr intends to tender his resignation. If
that earnest and able young gentleman persists
in resigning it will be a veiy unfortunate cir
cumstance for the league, It is to oe hoped,
however, that the many little unpleasantries
will be smoothed over and that he wiU be re
tained in office.

The Kaufmans Nine Covers the Forfeit of
Kanfmanns' nine covered the tSO forfeit of
theGnsky nine yesterday, so that the pro
posed contest between the two looks certain
now. The game is to be for $100 a side, and tlio
Kanfmanns name June 18 as the day of con
test. Recreation Park can be secured on that
day, as the club does not reappear here until
there is no doubt, as both nines are full of
confidence and will leave no stone unturned to
'Insure victory for their respective sides. It
would probably be well, however. If representa
tives of the two teams would meet as soon as
possible and make all arrangements necessary,
with signatures appended to the agreements.
It is also suggested that If the receipts, outside
the stakes, of course, were devoted to tho
Johnstown relief fund, the attendance would
be large. A large attendance would encourage
both sides and certainly make the game more

REED IS FAVORITE.
The Pittsburg Checker Player Expected to
Mr. H. A McAteer, the well-known local
checker player, returned from Chicago yester
day, where he saw the championship checker
match commence on Monday between Messrs.
Reed and Barker. Mr. McAteer Is confident
that the Pittsburger will win, as he is playing a
remarkable game. The game bo won from
Barker was the "Dundee." Reed had the
black, which Is considered the weaker side in
the opening game mentioned.
On Monday Reed made a draw of a game
that Barker and his coach ers thought no man
could beat. In thit game Reed's play was
extraordinary. Everybody thought he was
beaten, and after the draw was declared Bar
ker remarked that Wylie couldn't have made
a draw of it.
Reed is now favorite and the daily attend
anc is large. The match consists of 50 games.

Johnstown, June & The great danger from
the rubbish fires was shown in, a measure' to
day. Some of these fires are very recklessly
kindled, and it is surprising that the ruined
frame houses in their vicinity have not caught
fire before this. They are burning everywhere,
by the Cambria works and through the town,
and in some places a hose Is connected with a
hydrant, and water is thrown on the blaze occa
sionally to reduce its fierceness.
This precaution was neglected to-day in the
lower part of Kernville, across. Stony creek
from Johnstown, with the result that some
sparks flew in at the windows of Ralph Byrnes'
woolen mill, setting the wool on fire. Soon the
whole interior of the two-story brick building
was in a blaze, and it was a total min in about
two hours. The inhabitants of the vicinity al
most went wild.

Lock Haven. Jnne 6. Lock Haven Is in a
deplorable condition. The mud and sand is
two feet deep in the streets. At the height of
the flood the entire town was covered with five
to eight feet of water. Owing to the contour
of the river bank the swelling tide was forcod
directly into the city. One of the reservoirs
was carried away. The loss to the
city will 'not be less than $1,000,000.
Among the heavy losers are: The Pennsylvania
Pulp and Paper Company,-the principal feat
ure of the loss being eight carloads of paper
and a large quantity of wood and chemicals;
their damage will not be less than 20,000.
Shafer, Kintzing & Co.. $6,000: Hippie & Wil
son, $12,000: Kitzinger & BIckf ord, $20,000; T. B.
The piers of the timber boom are but little
damaged. At one time it looked as though
there would be a fire to add to the horror. A
carload of lime ignltedut beyond the de
struction of a few cars flip damage was light.
The people are
la Need of Provisions
and clothing. The first Government stores
.arrived to-day, and were followed this after
noon by a carload of provisions. Not having
the resources that Willjamsport possesses and
being on lower ground, the place was con
sequently moro flooded. It is thought that
there will be more suffering here than in the
city 28 miles below.
Railroad communication was opened up to
day from Tyrone, and one train went through
east to Montgomery, Whence over the Reading
road track to Sunbnry. where the passengers
were transferred by boats to main lines. Mont
gomery will not bo open to travel until Sun
day. The Pennsylvania and the Reading Rail
road Companies have agreed to use each
others tracks between Sunbnry and Williams
port until the bridge is completed.
The further west your correspondent trav

and barns line the banks of the stream.
Tho Destruction of Life
is great. About SO persons drowned In Clinton
county. At Lock Haven, James Guilford; at
Wayne, William Cooper and wife and three
children: at Clinton Dale. Robert Armstrong
and sister; at Mackeyville, Andrew Kline, wife
and two girls; at Salona, five persons.
From Berthwood to Keating every mill is
gone. At Driftwood the bridge is gone. At
Emporium the wreck is complete. No lives
were lost at Renova, as reported in several
papers, although there were several narrow es
capes. Seven men were carried down the flood
over a mile, but were rescued. Nine persons
drowned at Morris, six miles from Blackwell's.
The total loss to the town is $75,000.
Reliable persons who came down the river
from Clearfield said that the town was flooded
in some places four feet deep, and that the
wooden bridge at that point was carried away.
The tannery at that place meets with a heavy

A List of Those Drowned In tho Vicinity of
Lock Haven, June 6. Only one person is
known to have been drowned ip Lock Haven,
but In the country the list of dead numbers 23.
The names of the persons drowned, with their
former postofflco addresses, are as follows:
Lock Haven, James Guilford; Wayne town

children Mr. Seylor was rescued from a tree
and his wife's dead body lodged on a drift pile
within two rods of the tree where Seylor was
clinging wife of George Cole and two chil
dren, wife of Clem Barnes and two children.
Nearly all of the bodies -of those drowned
have been recovered. The damage in the
county. Including Lock Haven, will reach mil
lions of dollars. Both reservoirs that snpply
water for the city gave way and a water famine
seemed imminent, bat that danger is over, and
wateris being turned into the main pipes from
the stream itself. There is no gas or
electric lights. The people are cheered
to-day by news that aid is offered
and the sympathy of the country extended.
Robert L Fleming is treasurer, of the relief
fund. Danger threatens now from sickness if
the weather grows hot before the filth can be
removed from the city. All dead animals were
removed at once. A number of the manufact
uring establishments which were on high
ground are running again, but the hundreds of
men who found employment in the lumber
manufacture are idle, with no prospect of work
HOW MUCH CAN HE DITEET?
That Is Practically the Question Johnstown
Applies to Beaver.
Johnstown, June 6. A meeting was held
this afternoon in the private car of Superin
tendent of the Baltimore and Ohio, Mr. Patton,
which was attended by James B. Scott, Captain
W. S. Jones, Adjutant General Hastings, H.
J. Gourley and Reuben Miller. The last two
gentlemen represented the Executive Commit
tee of the Pittsburg Citizens Relief Committee,
The object of the meeting was to ascertain
from Governor Beaver how. much of the funds
nowln his hands forthe relief of flood sufferers
In the State would go to Johnstown,
There have been placed at the Governor's
command sums aggregating $250,000; but some
of it was specifically given for the relief of
Johnstown. Much of the money was donated
simply for the relief of sufferers from the flood
in the State, those In Clearfield, Lock Haven,
Williamsport and other drowned-out places
coming in for their share.
The Pittsburg committee has in its hands
about $225,000. It has been the first on the
grounds, and has been unsparing of expense in
sending the relief to sufferers. Heavy bills
have been Incurred, and both Mr. Miller and
Mr. Gourley stated af the meeting this after
noon that they desired as a financial precaution
to know just how far they could go. ""To this
end it was necessary to know definitely how
much of the money now in the bands of Gover
nor Beaver would be devoted to Johnstown.
Governor Beaver was wired, and responded
that be would meet a representative of the
Pittsburg committee in Philadelphia on Sat
urday, and the money question would be
settled. He,a!so placed? himself In communica
tion with the authorities at a later hour.
A TAST CEEHAT0E1DSI.
That Is the Form ot the Present Proposi
tion Most Favored.
- Johnstown, June 6. There is a strong
movement on foot in 'favor of applying the
torch to the wrecked buildings in Johnstown,
and although the suggestion meets with strong
opposition at this time, there Is little doubt the
ultimate solution of existing difficulties will be
by this method.
At a meeting of the Central Relief Committee
this afternoon General Hastings suggested the
advisability of drawing a cordon around the
few bouses that are not in ruins and applying
the torch to the remainder of the great sea of
waste. He explained briefly the great work yet
to be accomplished, if it were hoped to thor
oughly overhaul every portion of the debris,
and 'Insisted that it would take 5,000 men
months to complete the task. Of the hundreds
of bodies buried beneath the rubbish, sand and
stones, the skeleton or putrid remains of many
was all that could be hoped to be recovered.
A motion was made that after 18 hours
further search, the debris of the city be con
sumed by fire, the engines to be on hand to
play upon any valuable building that; despite
previous precautionsjnight become limited by
the general conflagration.
Those whose relatives or friends who rest be
neath the wreck remonstrated strongly against
any such summary action. Although the
proposition was defeated, it was evident that
the movement was gaining many adherents;
and the result will doubtless be that in a few
days the torch will be applied, not only to the
Aeld of waste in Johnstown, but also to the
avalanche of debris that chokes the stream
above the Pennsylvania bridge.

One Medical Man's Review of
A REACTION WILL COME.
Which Will be Dangerous to Both Mind

Anxiety Is as to the People Down the
Philadelphia, Jnne ft A special dispatch
to the Medical Newi, of this city, from a staff
correspondent at Johnstown, to-day, says: Not
withstanding the fact that many of the report
ers of dally papers have sent messages from
here indicating that diseases, the result
of exposure, are exceedingly common, the fact
is that in the three largest hospitals very few
cases of any kind exist, and in over 90 per cent
of these, the individuals are suffering from in
juries incurred during and after the flood.
The cases of pneumonia are very few and the
report that measles is to a large extent epi
demic is claimed to be false. Too much care
cannot be exercised in the selection and dis
pensing of much of the second-hand clothing
which is sent forward in the relief trains by
From some of the clothing which we saw dis
tributed we feel sure that lack of such care
may redily result in the production of a large
amount of contagious disease. The danger of
malarial poisoning is, we believe, not present;
simply beccause the conditions favorable totbe
production of such miasmimh absent. The
water, sweening throutrb the valley with enor
mous force, has carried off in the majority of
cases the soft mud of the river banks to dis
tant and low-lying bottom lands, and bas
covered the entire site of Johnstown with a
layer of ,
Fare Sand and Gravel.
Asa consequence of this all cesspools have
not only been thoroughly washed out but after
ward filled with sand. Everyparbcle of dlrtand
city filth has been washed away, and it would
be hard to find, hygenically speaking, a more
cleanly spot than the main portions of what was
once Johnstown. The danger will be the ac
cumulation of new filth, owing to the large
number ot strangers living in tents and the
outdoor life of the survivors.
There Is absolutely no use in sending more
physicians here save that by their training they
may assist in the carrying out of measures be
longing to the realm of preventive medicine.
The mental condition of almost every former
resident of Johnstown is ono of lhe gravest
character and the reaction (which will set in
when the reality of the whole affair Is fully
comprehended, can scarcely fail to produce
many cases of permanent or temporary in
sanity. Most of the faces that one meets, both male
and female, are those of the most profound
melancholia associated with an almost abso
lute disregard of the future. The nervous
system shows the strain that it bas borne by a
trembling of the hand and of the lip in man as
well as in woman. Tho nervous state is further
evidenced by a peculiar Intonation of words,
the persons speaking melancholy, while the
voices of many rough looking men are changed
into such tremulous notes of so high a pitch as
to make one Imagine that a child on the verge
of tears use speaking.
No Tears Are Shed.
Crying is so rare that your correspondent
saw not a tear on any face in Johnstown, but
the women that are left are haggard, with
pinched features and heavy dark lines under
their eyes. Indeed the evidence of
systematic disturbance is so mark
ed in almost every individual who
was present at the time of the catastrophe
that it Is possible with the eye alone to separate
the residents from those outside. Everything
required in the way of surgical appliances
seems to be on hand, but medicines are scarce,
and will probably be needed more in the next
few days than heretofore.
A fact in favor of the controlling of any malady
is to be found In the very general exodus of the
township people ho crowd the platform of de
parting trains. There can be no doubt
that this movement should be encouraged
to the greatest possible extent, and it
jwould be well it places away from
Johnstown, at not too great a distance, could
be opened for tbe reception of those who,
while not entirely disabled, are useless at
home. The scarcity of pure spring water,
which is not tainted by dead animal matter,
is a pressing evil for consideration, but we
doubt if this Is as important a fact at Johns
town as It is further down the river, owing to
the large amount of decomposing flesh In the
water at this latter point. No disinfectant
can reach snch a cause of disease, save
the action of-the large volume of water which
dilutes all poisonous matter. A Board of
Health should warn the people of the portions
of tbe country supplied by the Conemaugh of
the danger of drinking its waters forweektto

case of William F. Kaiser.of Allegheny county,
to compel City Treasurer Hill to issue him a
wholesale license under the act of 1572, relating
to Allegheny county, on the ground of
fhe alleged unconstitutionality of 1887,
fixing the license of wholesale liquor
dealers and regulating sales by them. There
are now pending before tbe court cases as fol

sale act of May 21. 1SS7; appeals of 14 bottlers'

The plaintiffs in of these cases, except
in tbe Kaiser case, do not attack the constitu

the court bas no discretion to refuse a license
but must grant or refuse according to the evi

Toledo la the BaMness. ''
Nashviile. June ft An injunction suit of
more than ordinary interest to a number of
Obloans was argued' before Judge Howell E.
Jackson, of the United States Circuit Court to
day. The case comes from Toledo, the peti
tloners being tbe Toledo Natural Gas Company
and the defendant tbe city of Toledo and the
Northwestern Natural Gas Company. The Leg
islature of Ohio last year passed a bill
allowing Toledo to issue bonds for $750,000 to
establish a plant for te furnishing' of natural
gas to the city for both private and public use.
The act was to take effect upon condition that
60 per cent of the people of Toledo approved its
provisions. At the general municipal election
In April last tbe bill was approved by 62 per
cent of the voters; thereupon tbe vote was
certified to the Governor by the Mayor. The
former, in compliance with the act. appointed
a gas board of five trustees. This board made
tbe first issue of bonds amounting to $750,000,
of which $100,000 have been disposed of and
$75,000 are to be sold June 10.
The two companies mentioned, which havs
their pipes laid to Toledo and which have been
supplying the city with natural gas, ask that
the injunction lie against the city's bonds and
that the city be enjoined from going into the
gas business. They claim that under Toledo's,
city government the act of the legislature, l
unconstitutional In that it confers upon the dry'
rights which are alleged to properly belong I
to only private individuals and corporations.
These companies are controlled by-tha Stand
ard Oil Company.

fury. The wind wa3 from the north, and ther
direction of the fire was along the water on
Front street, and from the water front to tba
big brick block between Columbia and San
Fran streets. Tbe indications were that the
whole business portion of the city would be
swept away, involving a loss of millions. The
magnificent San Francisco store and other
stores in tbe row were on fire, and the whole
big block seemed doomed. The local firemen
were helpless in the face ot tbe calamity and
telegraphed in all directions for aid.
At 4:30 P. ar.. the conflagration was rushing
through the beart of the city. To add to the
peril a smart breeze began blowing off the bay
fanning tho flames and about the same time
a thousand feet of hose was cancht in the ad
vancing blaze and was destroyed. Tbe Opera
