Von Der Ahe's Curious Statements About the League. ABOUT SULLIVAN AHD HLRA1N. Extensile Comment on Their Proposed Bat tle Keit Week. SOME PACTS COKCEEKIKG THE MEJi Local baseball affairs have been extremely prominent daring the past week in many respects. The team has played in a very singular way, having given exhibitions of the very worst kind of ball playing and dis plays of the Tory best. "Deacon" White's appearance in the city has caused a stir and the release of Pitchers Beam and Erumm was a theme for considerable talk among all the local enthusiasts. "When The Dis patch published the exclusive news of the release of the two pitchers named, there was great surprise among the patrons of the game; not because of The Dispatch's usual exclusive quantity of im portant news, but because of the sudden release of the two. young men. Probably everybody wbo has the least J Knowledge 01 naseoaii auairs expecieu mat an three of the young pitchers, that is Beam, Krumm and Dunning, could not be retained, and that one or two of them would eventually be released. This was generally expected, but lew people expected tbat any of them would be released until tbey were more thoroughly tried. As far as I have been able to judge from the conversation of the friends of the re leased pitchers the lack of sufficient trial is the burden of their complaints. I mention this to point out a very important principle in base ball, viz, the right of a club to release players when it chooses. There is not only a principle of right in question, but also one of expediency. I don't think that anybody will lor one moment contend that the Pittsburg club exceeded its right in releasing Beam and Krumm when it did. Certainly it was unfortunate for both young men to be in duced to leave their employment only to be suddenly throun to one side by those who per suaded them from home. Results of this kind are not only disappointing to the victims, but they stir up very unpleasant feelings. But we must not forget that such is baseball; the con ditions just referred to are existing through the entire baseball world to-day, and they exist absolutely on the principle of the survival of the fittest. After all, baseball is an out and out elucidation of the theories of those old philosophers of the Bentham school. The -survival of the fittest is paramount in baseball, and every young man who enters its arena must keep tbat in view. Consciously or unconsciously every club director acts on this prin ciple, and regardless of charity or gener osity they keep the good and refuse what they deem inferior. In releasmg the young pitchers above named, the local club simply acted on this principle. Common sense will tsach us that the club officials were convinced that there was better material at command than tLe two young men released. However, it is a pity that tbey ere not tried more than they were, and yet if they had been it might have been worse for the club. Hoir the Knee is Going. The pennant race is becoming exceedingly interesting as the half distance approaches. Cleveland during the week has been gradually closing with Boston, and the Spiders are becom ing more of a surprise than ever. Ifearthatwe all must be forced to the conclusion that there is something more than luck in Cleveland's suc cess. I can find nothing in the science of prob abilities to show how those Spiders could win to many finely-played games by anything ex cept merit. If lock has been their talisman then we most conclude that Iuck has become an established principle. However, 1 am in clined to think that if Cleveland's pitchers -nere to break down the so-called luck of the club would vanish. I will not be surprised if Cleveland passes Boston before long. Kew York, a splendid team of ball plaj ers, are up to their ears in hard luck No sooner does that team fet out-of one difficulty until it is into another, am free to admit that the Giants are in many respects my ideals, but when their best men are injured or prevented from playing tbey are not likely to win victones tbat they otherwise could win. The club has had comparatively little good from Keefe this season, and Ward is now disabled, I still have hope in the Giants. Two weeks ago I intimated that Boston might take a tumble after leaving Pittsburg. The achievements of that team have borne out my prediction. Chicago is bracing up and the balance of the clubs are going along as usual. Deacon While's Case. According to what President Nimick told me .yesterday afternoon we need not expect the venerable Deacon White with 'us this season. It is a pity that such an old and excellent play er as White should be in such difficulties as he is. There is much sound reason ing on his side. but I fail to see wby the Pittsburg club should give him any extra indncement to come here or violate any law of baseball to secure his services. If it is true-that President Stearns, of Detroit, or rather ex-President Steams, has netted $58,000 by trafficking with players. Steams should be looked to for any extra money. I am fully persuaded tbat such like deals will eventually end in a thorough change of base ball law. The American sentiment is against any man or body of men amassing fortunes by stealing or forcibly holding the services of other men to the entire benefit of the stealers or holders. I don't think that any country to day tolerates a system that permits one man to sell the services of another against the will of tne latter, it is easy to see oy tne Detroit deal that a company can make a fortune out of the aualities ot men whom they force to play for lem or not play at all. There will be a change some day. Ton Der Ahe's New Scheme. It was stated a few days .ago that Von der Ahe has declared himself against the city of Bt Louis, and threatens to have his revenge by leaving them minus a good ball team. To do this, the report says, he intends to try and buy the franchise of the Washington club and put a League team in that city. The reporter who gave this story to the world from St. .Louis definitely states that he heard Mr. Ahe make the statement. There are apparently two truths in the matter. One is that Von der Ahe said what he is qnoted to have said, and the other is that it is all nonsense what he did say, ex cepting that part relating to St. Louis. Von der Ahe ought to know more about St. Louis than I do. At any rate, I'll believe him when he says his club is not re ceiving sufficient support. His declaration on this point gives us to understand tbat financial matters in the Association are not in the very best condition. It also seems to mean that there Is such a thing as being champions too long. Americans like changes and, doubtless, the St. Louis cranks want to have a little more excitement than that caused by a sure thing every season. However this may be. It is safe to say that Mr. Von Der Ahe will never get the Washington franchise, or any other League franchise. The desire to have him a League member is not strong enough to help toward that end; indeed, I learned some time ago from Association officials that his retirement from that body would not cause many regrets. .Not that Von der Ahe has not done anything for baseball, or that he is not energetic. He is all that, but he is a disturbing element. But the matter in question reminds us tbat we may be prepared to hear time and time again about the retirement of Washington from the League before next season. What I desire to say is that nobody knows anything abont it yet. It is true that Washington is not getting smoothly along, but the same may be said of two or three other cities. A Washington gentleman in a position to know told me a few days ago that President Hewitt, at present, has no idea whatever of parting with bis franchise. But if he resolves to do tbat. Von der Ahe will not get it. The probability is that the latter will have the op portanlty to bay a f ew Association franchisee. A Terr Foolish Notion. On several occasions I have referred to the entreveny, if ft may be called such, now going I MfeetYMfitt Players' Brotherhood and the League; In fact I think The Dispatch was one of the first, if not the first, papers to sug gest a real business meeting between repre sentatives of the two bodies. This snggestlon was made before Mr. Ward and the Spalding tourists had returned from their trip. But along with the suggestion it was also pointed out that any difficulties existing against tbe players must go to the end of tbe season ex cept all civil law, moral obligations and base ball rules were Ignored. Well, from that time right uo until now one writer after another is stating to the world that the players are go ing to strike if tbey don't get what they want. Of course it is meant that tho strike will take place at once. Nothing can be more stupid than this, and no notion can be more foolish. What will tbey strike for? Against terms that every one of them have agreed to for a year? The thing is ridiculous to think of, and I can never believe that a man like Mr. Ward would ever dream of such an absurdity until be actually declares in its iavor. The Brotherhood can only exist by recognizing not only baseball law, but other public laws, and surely its members are not so devoid of common sense as to kill their own organization in such a stupid way. Abont the Great Battle. To-morrow week will be an eventful day If the predictions and expectations are fulfilled regarding the Sullivan-KIlrain battle. It is to be tbe greatest pugilistic event of modern times if some authorities speak the truth; at any rate, from to-day until the affair is over the proposed battle will be the general theme of conversation among all sorts and conditions of men. This fact will force all of us who write about sporting matters to deal somewhat ex tensively with the matter this week. It is only fair now to assume that both parties mean to have the fight take place. I say parties because 1 firmly believe that the two principals have all along been desirous of fighting. However, it is true tbat man proposes and some other power dis poses. This reminds us that there are still some arrangements to be made tbat in trying to complete them the entire affair may col lapse. Two ot tbe most important features are still unsettled, viz., the battle ground and the referee. The parties may be quite satisfied with the location, but the powers that be may not be disposed to allow the fight. Each party may want its own referee and nave none other, and this would end it. We all know how Mace and Coburn got to the battle ground in Ireland and how miserably the affair ended or col lapsed. There are many other instances on record which reasonably enough prompt every one of us who know anything about pugilistic affairs to say a battle is never certain nntil its over. Tho stakes at issue are really so big to risk in a prize ring tbat a hitch may occur at any stage. However, I cannot do other than believe the statements of both parties, and these statements are emphatically to the effect that the tight will take place, x Who Will Win? Who will winT is the next interesting ques tion, assuming that the men will fight. I ven ture to say that thousands, aye, and many thousands, of citizens will be answering that question between now and the Sth of July. I also say that it is a very difficult question to an swer, and I will endeavor to point out why it is. In estimating the comparative abilities of the two men we could soon come to a conclusion had Sullivan not had a broken-down period in his career. The truth is his reappearance in the ring is something akin to that of a compara tively unknown man. We know what he was before his illness and dissipation, but we have little or no idea of bis stamina or power now that belongs to a test. However, if Sullivan is in anything like his old formal have no hesita tion in saying he will defeat Kilrain. Muldoon assures us tbat Sullivan was never in better condition in his life. I don't believe tbe statement by any means, and besides I am disposed to think that Muldoon, the wrestler, knows very little, indeed, about prize fighting or preparing a man to take part in a battle. Sullivan, of course, may be as good as he ever was, but I won't believe it nntil it is clearly demonstrated to tho public. However, as I said a week or so ago, Sullivan need not be at his best to defeat Kilrain, and in coming to this conclusion I have been careful to examine the records of both men as pugilists. There is, indeed, a remarkable contrast between tbe records of each man. In one we find where a pugilist in his extraordinary power simply knocked opponents senseless as it he was using a blacksmith's hammer, that was Sullivan when he was Sullivan. In the other we meet with a man who at once strikes us as tame,and wbo in his contests invariably made a draw with very inferior men; men whom Sullivan would have finished in ten minutes. 1 am not going beyond the records In stating tins. Kil rain certainly did have a few good hammer-and-tonirs battles when he worked in tbe mill at Sotnerville, Massbut his professional record has been a very tame one indeed. He f ought a draw with a man like Jim uoode and even with Mike Cleary. George Fryor, the Englishman, also made a draw with him. It took him 13 rounds to defeat a slow man like Joe Lannon, when Sullivan at his best would have settled him in four. Thus 1 might go on reciting tame affairs, or at least second-rate affairs. On the other hand, Sullivan sever made a draw if the police aid not interfere and his opponents did not lie down. According to these records, Sullivan should be an easy winner, but there are other things to consider. Tbeir Two Bis; Battles. To more correctly judge of the respective merits of Sullivan and Kilrain it would be well to compare their work in France. If we do th is it will be found tbat In a 21-foot prize ring Sullivan's superiority over Kilrain is greatly comprised. Not that Kilrain is or at least has shown himself to be first-class as a ring tact lean. His encounter with Jem bmlth was a verit able burlesque, but 1 am free to admit that Sulli van's performance against Mitchell everything considered, was a trine worse. IT Sullivan on Monday week displays no better Judgment and is not in better conilltion than when he met Mitchell be will be beaten if he fights Kilrain. The latter's burlesque with Smith was Just as sincere as far as fiehtlnp Is ran. cerned as that between Sullivan and Mitchell was. But Kilrain was in much better condition wn en be finished than was bulllvan. This con vinces me that Sullivan lacks that patience neces sary to pull a man victoriously through in a Ion g prizefight. Muldoon, his trainer, says that the Hcbt will be a lone one. If this is true, so much tbe worse for Sullivan, because in all his encoun ters he has shown a disposition to weaken if he failed to settle an onponentln the first few rounds. V elk then, what I have to say about the probable winner is this: That, judging from the probable condition of each man, and ballivan's last per formance In a 24-foot ring, 1 think the indications lavorahle fer Kilrain. I shall have more to say before next Monday, and may know more tbe condition of the principals, on whlchCeverythlnc seems to hang. Personally I would not Invest a cent on the aflalr without I saw the men, particu larly Sullivan. Facts Abont tbe Men. In answer to many correspondents and to stop any further inquiries on the subject, I now give a few facts about Sullivan and Kilrain. John L. bulllvan was born of Irish parents. In the High lands, Boston. October 15, 1853. He is 5 feet 10 Inches tall, and. It is claimed, can fight best at 185 pounds. In condition his physical measure ments arc: Chest, 44 inches; bleeps. 16X Inches; calf, 15K Inches; thigh, 27 Inches. He began to spar In 1S79. Jake Kllraln's right name Is Joseph John Killlon, but his name was cnauged to Kil rain bv the boys with whom be played in school davs. and it has remained Kllriln ever since. He was born at Greennort, Columbia county, J". Y.. February 9, 1839. He had no regular occupation, save that of teaching boxing and training athletes. When a youth he worked In a rolling mill at Somervllle. Mats. He Is 5 feet 10 Inches high, and fights at 193 pounds. His chest Is 41 inches; bleeps, IS inches: forearm, 14 inches; waist, 34 Inches; thigh, 15 Inches; calf, 16J4 Inches. He wean a io. 9 shoe and No. 9 glove, and it taken 17 inch collar to encircle his neck. O'Connor's Departure. William O'Connor, the champion sculler of the United States and Canada, has left for England to compete against Henry G. Searle for tbe cham pionship of the world. Technically we hare neither part nor lot in the matter, as both men are 'under tbe British flag, "but It is not unreason able to say that O'Conmor will have the good wishes of almost all Americans. Just as In En gland Hanlon was looked npon as an American so do we. to a great extent, look nnon O'Connor as one of ourselves. However that may be. there will be plenty of American money behind him. IT all goes well the race will take place in September next, so that it would seem premature to make any predictions about it at present. As I hare polnttd out before, we have comparatively little Idea of Bearle's ability but even at this early stage I venture to say that be must needs to be the greatest wonder tbat ever Australia sent from Its shores to beat O'Connor. It may be that bearle will find several opponents beside O'Connor berore be returns home. He is accompanied by Matterson. Ihe latter has some Idea of what American rowers can do, as he was at the last international regatta on the Thames. But his knowledge mnst be imperfect, because Teemer, who was the best rower Irom America there, was sadly out of form. However, no Aus tralian has any Idea of what O'Connor can do, and we may safely come to the conclusion that each party thinks it has a phenomenon PBIXGLX. La Perla del Fumar.

AH OLD GAJIBLEB'8 GOLDEN M4SC0T IWmriCK TOB THI DISPATCH.'! ii horses were standing at the starting post recent ly ready for a race. Everyone was anxiously waiting for the fall of the Suddenly a jockey dismounted. The saddle girth was tightened. "Is that Anderson?" shouted a hundred specta tors, and hearing that it was, they rushed to the bet ting ring to back Fides, the horse Anderson was riding. This is the latest supersti tion among turfmen, who are perhaps the most superstitious of all gamblers. Every time Anderson or Garrison dismounts from tbeir horses at the post an army of men try to get another bet on. The dismounting is termed putting on the cinch. This superstition was started at Gravesena on May 18. Anderson was ridingMr.Belinont's' Oily fides in a handicap sweepstakes race. The betting against Fides was 3 to L While at the post Juggler, another hoise starting In tbe same race, seized Anderson by tbe leg and threw bim off Fides. Anderson fainted, when he recovered he remounted Fidps and rode her to victory. The superstitious bore this in mind. Two days later Anderson rode Joe Lee in a handicap sweepstakes. At the post be dis mounted and had the girth tightened. A hun dred betters rnsbed to tbe betting ring and backed Joe Lee. He won and they were happy. On May 25, In the race for the Bedford stakes. Garrison dismonnted from Fadlsha and after ward won the race. Now whenever either of these two jockeys dismount when at the post the superstitious gamblers cannot place their Getting a Cinch. money in the hands of the bookmakers fast enongb, and they claim that tbey always win. "How is tbat gamblers, and especially gam blers on tbe turf, are so superstitious?' CERTAIN 1UCKT OMENS. - The question was asked an old race-goer re cently, but he denied altogether that they were superstitious. He said, "Backing horses in a race is all a game of chance. You may have the very best horse in the race and may hack him heavily, but through some mishap, such as the horse being pocketed, or slipping bis bridle, he may be beaten. Now these mishaps make the chance in tbe game, and there are certain signs tbat all the race-goers believe in that tell in when to back a certain horse and when to let him run without carrying any money. Why, my dear boy. I would no more think of backing a horse tbat these signs and omens said would not win than I would at tempt to fly." "How is it then that you dont always win? Are tbe sign sometimes wrong?" "Never. The siens are always right, but we don't always read tbem correctly, and even when we do we sometimes think we'know best Then wo have to suffer for onr conceits" "Just tell me of some of the signs that you co by." "First of all I never make a bet unless I have my mascot with me. It is a So gold piece. If 1 should happen to leave It at home then I just watch the horse race: Sometimes I have tried to win when I have not that gold piece with me, but I always lost, and so now I have given it up. I found that gold piece several years ago when coming through the irates at Jprnmn Park. 1 only had a S3 bill with me that dar. and in tbe first race I placed it on a horse that won and paid S56 75 for S3. I concluded that the S3 gold piece was meant to bring me good luck, and determined to keep it. That day I won $760, and ever since then I have never been Watohingfor JHM Boat HTumbcn. without money. It is always a sure sign of ill luck with me if I get out of bed in the morning on the right-hand side. And it would be a great deal better for me if I would get right back again and sleep all day long. If, on the other hand, I get out on the right side and my right foot touches tbe floor first then tbat day will be a good one for me, and I am perfectly safe in playing tbe races." TO LOSE ON MONDAY A BAD OMEN. "Monday is a bad day to lose on. If one starts the week badly then you may be sure it will end badly. If I lose on Monday I rarely make an other bet until the next Monday comes around. Sometimes I have varied this rule and tried to win bnt it Is of no use. But there are hundreds of signs tbat would take me all Say to tell you about" "Just tbe man I want to see. I have a real good thing in tbe third race." excuse me to-oay, oia man, but i'm not betting." "Why, what's the mattert sworn off J" "No. but in lacing my shoe this morning I laced it wrong. If I had left it laced wrong all would have been welt, and 1 should have won, hut instead I unfastened it and relaced It That is a sure sign of 111 luck." It is a sure sign of bad luck If you break a glass while having a drink at tbe bar. It strikes you sometimes several ways. You lose your drink, spoil your clothes, have to pay for the glass and it is a sure forecast tbat you will not win any more tbat day and if you have backed any horse to win he will be beaten. Borne betters believe in dreams. Tbey will sometimes dream tbat a certain horse will win a race, and then back that horse- When he next runs. An old turfman told this story about a creem recently: "it was two days before tbe Great American stakes was run at Gravesend I dreamed of the race, I MTrquita dUtiaotly I I I ssW a number of horses start, and one, a big chest nut, win. Wbo be was I could not make out. 1 tried all day long to find out tbe name of this boree, but it was of no nse. I bad, his picture stamped on my mind, and when I got to the track tried again to find out the name of this youngster, bnt it was nr use. Just as tbe horses were going to tbe post I recognized my winner in tbe dream. It was August Belmont's Bt. Carlo, ridden by Garrison. 1 rushed to the ling and managed to put on some money. Well, you know, St, Carlo won, and I won $600. That's one reason why I believe in dreams." LUCK IN THE HUNCHBACK. Many believe that a hunchback is a sure sign of luck. In this superstition turfmen do not I J&&fSL I ! 'I Sz&l Mfffli iff! SB wQ Bm) VJIHfip 11 Hr 18 K IvHl Jiubblnp or Zuek. agree with actors. Many an actor has refused to play because he has seen a hunchback in the audience, and he believes ft a sure sign of ill luck. Turfmen think differently. They say if you are in search of good luck never let a hunchback pass without touching tbe hump, no matter how lightly tbe tips of tho fingon willdo. Thenno matter how much you mav have lost on previous races you will win it afl back again and much more besides. Some say tbat you must wish for luck at the same time that you touch the hunchback, and in order to work tho charm, the hunchback must be aware of your action. Cross-eyed persons bring good and bad luck with them. If a man sees a cross-eyed woman he will have good luck, but this cross eyed woman will bring, bad luck to another woman. In the same way a cross-eyed man will bring good luck to a woman and back luck to a man. Some persons claim that they carry mascots that will protect them from the ill luck caused in meeting a cross-eyed person of their own sex. All patrons of the race course are firm be lievers in the old superstition about seeing the new moon first It is good luck to see it first over tbe right shoulder, bad luck to look at it over tbe left shoulder, but best luck of all to look at It full in the face with money in your pocket. The money must bo turned over while looking at the moon, and it will double itself during the next 24 hours. Ihere are even more unlucky numbers in the doubting Thomas calendar than there are days. Everyone, of course, is familiar with the fatal ity said to surround the number 13. If there are 13 horses starting In a race the one num bered 13 has to be an extraordinary good one before thev will back it. and then thev claim 'that nine times out of ten something will hap pen Luai win prevent ma winning tne race anu the money. Many believe tbat luck surrounds certain numbers. Some will favor the num ber 7. ' A DEEAM THAT PBOTED TETJE. Talking of this number a turfite recently said: "I believe in No. 7. I discovered it some years ago by reaming of it On the following morning I spoke of it to a friend, and he told me to go to the races and try my luck by play ing the horses numbered 7 on the programme. I went and No. 7 won the first race. I won 28, as it was the favorite. The horses numbered seven in the next two races did not start but they did in all tbe other events, and I went home with 475 In my pockets. Now I don't contend that because I dreamt of No. 7 that I won, but I do contend that had I not dreamt of tbe same I should never have won. No. 7 is lucky with me In everything. If I board a car No. 7 in tbe morning luck sticks to me all that day. In fact every time I see No. 7 1 am lucky." Others play No. lor any number that they think brings luck. Some persons who play the races never like to win the first race. They will make a small bet on some horse and expect to lose. After tbat they will plav heavily and are most confident of winning. If they should win in tbe first race by any cbanc6 they will not bet any more as they are certain they will lose. Bettors on horse races are always on the look out for sorao sign that will point to a certain horse in tbe race. Going down to the Mon mouth Park races on the Sandy Hook boat thev are always on the lookout for a pilot boat and then when they see the big number on the sail they regard it as a good omen and plan ac cording to what the number points to on the programme. Others watch signs and listen for names. If they see a sign that bears tbe name of a horse or hear anyone mention the name of a horso in some odd way they take it as a sure tip that the horse will win the next time he starts. Some men have so little faith in their own Judgment of the merits of tbe horses engaged to run, and believe so firmly that winning on a horse race is all a game of chance, that they will place tbe names of the horses written on separate pieces of paper in a hat and play tho first one tliey draw out Others will throw an open knife at the card of course a lucky knife and the name in which the blade sticks It the horse they select to carry their money. Here are some signs which if followed accurately are sure to bring wealth to any one who tries to win at the races. They are given by an old race goer: HOW TO BET AND WIN. It is unlucky to whistle or sing before break fast If vou should happen to do so, don't tonch the races that day or yon will lose. It is unlucky to sneeze before breakfast or when looking at the new moon. If you should sneeze on the new moon don't touch a horse race until you see the next new moon. It is bad luck to pass under a ladder, and on the day that you do you won't back a winner. If you break a looking glass bad luck will stick to you for a month, and if you sing or whistle at any meal table bad luck will stick to you for nine days. At the race course recently one man said if tbe first horse he saw on the track should hap pen to be a gray one he knew he would have good luck that day. Some immediately after making a bet go and drink a glass of beer. They say it puts a cinch on, but how tbey do not explain. Others al ways put their tickets in a certain pocket They claim that if theyallowed anyone else to touch them tbat something would happen to the horse to prevent its winning, no matter how good it might be. Others always secure certain luckv seats on the fraud stand, and if by any accident tbeir favorite seats should be occupied they are sure that they will not win. A good story is told of Lawyer William F. Howe's superstition. He frequently visits the race course and bets a good deal on the horses. He does not take the tips from anybody, but employs a little colored boy as a tout. A short time ago the two men were caught standing In a secluded corner of the naddncki The p-rpnt lawyer had a wad of money in bis hand rub bing It vigorously on the wool of the darkey who stood before bim, "Rub, Massa Howe, rub: dat's good luck. You's got a cinch shuah. I'se got it straight Now just rub once moan, and den git the big gest odds." Mr. Howe didn't make the bet- He tried to laugh at it as a joke. He won't even say if tbe tip succeeded. FredWalbaum is abont tbe most superstitions bookmaker in the ring. Some tune ago he made a book in a race in which Firenzi and Kingston started. Everyone else in tbe ring made Firenzi favorite. Walbaum held out Kingston and laid good odds against Firenzi. All in tbe ring laughed at him. Kingston won and then Walbaum laughed. He said: "I was going home on the elevated train last night and by some chance in tbe illuminated sign over the Kingston House the word Kingston alone was illuminated.

The day was a glorious one for the home players aud no mistake. Every member ' in the team could have been presented with a duke's coronet bad ihere been any at com mand, bnt there wasn't. The next best and available thing was a black1 pig which was, with due solemnity, presented to Midget Miller by Captain Sunlap. Miller dragged his piece of live black pork from the plate to the dressing room, and tbat was the omen for the glorious result which followed. The Midget himself began banging the ball' about the field, and 'his actions were to a great extent con tagious to the finish. Tbe two games were played for one price of admission, and this fact filled the ground al most full, and tbe bleaching boards were packed. The weather looked extremely threat ening, and that deterred hundreds from see ing tbe games. However, the large crowds tbat seen tbe contests saw something worth see ing. Never a club played played two better games than did the local representatives. It seems tbe local fellows have been lying back forHarry Wright's men, and have now resolved to make marks of them. Undoubtedly the Phillies were outplayed in both games, par ticularly in tbe second. IT 'WAS A DAISY. Tbe first contest was what in ordinary par lance may be called a daisy. It was fought bit terly to the end, although it was nearly pre sented to tbe visitors by Hanlon. Any contest tthat lasts 11 innings and is decided by three runs to two, means some great work Bome where. In the game in question everybody did well except Hanlon, and be surely bad an off time. Tbe great feature, however, that is the feature that kept everybody on pins and needles, was the pitching of Buffinton and Morris. The latter always had a little the best of Buff, but toward the finish Buff became to a small extent a mark. He displayed excellent judgment in fooling batters until tbe most critical part of the game arrived. He was excellently supported, how ever, and that probably prevented defeat from coming earlier than it did. Mulvey fielded well, and Clements played his tiest, which means tbat he played just about as good as anybody can play. Morris was in pitching humor, and he worked off fast and slow balls so artfully as to hare the entire opposing nine at his mercy. In fairness to Moms it ought to be slid that it was not bis fault tbat tbe visitors were not shut out, With the exception of Hanlon the home team fielded to perfection, SCORED THE FIBST BUN. The home players scored the first ' run in the third inning. Hanlon led off and- got his base on balls and stole second. Sunday struck out, and Beckley whacked out a good single to left, and Hanlon scored. Miller bit for one into ceoter field, but the side was retired before Georgo crossed the plate. Nothing moro was done in run getting until tbe seventh inning, when tbe visitors threw something like a meta phone funeral pall over the crowd, by scoring two runs. Clements led off the inning with a single to left field, Fogarty flew out to Smith and then Farrar sent Clements to third by a nice single to right Farrar stole second and Hallmac flew ont to Sunday. Then Schriver banged out a long fly into right center field. Both Sunday and Hanlon ran for it Hanlon got it, but dropped tbe hall lu a very unaccountable way. As aresult two runs were scored. In the ninth the home players tied the score. Kuehne led off with a three-bagger and scored on the throw-in of Smith's foul nv to richt In the eleventh Inning Fields began proceedings with a double to left, was advancea a base on Morris' sacrifice and scored on Sunday's single to left THE SECOND SLATJGHTEB. The second game was a wretched perform ance for tho visitors. They started oft all de moralized and in tbe first two or three innings made some of the most glaring errors ever seen on a ball field. Tbe veteran Harry Wright sat on the bench and bit bis lip at the sight Fete Wood was put in to pitch for the Phillies and Decker was his catcher. Staley and Miller were tbe local battery It would scarcely be fair to criticise Wood's pitching in yesterday's game because his support was so wretched and stupid. Decker was not a success and bis throwing to second oase couianc wen nave been worse. Wood can pitch effective, no doubt, and Decker can probably do mucb bet ter. Bnt the entire nine seemed to be rattled and almost before tbo game was well started tbe borne players had a winning lead. There was another and more important shortcoming of tbe visitors. Tbey couldn't tonch Staley, and he had no difficulty in shut ting tbem out Dunlap's fielding was brilliant, and so was Sunday's. Nothing escaped them tbat was withinreach, and doubleplays seemed to be their forte. Hanlon began tbe game by knocking out a single to right and reached second on a passed ball. Sunday got his base on balls and Hanlon was nabbed at tbird. Becklev's life hit and a passed ball sent Sunday to tbird and Beckley to second. MILI.EE WAS SHEEE. Miller sent a grounder to Mulvey, who threw the ball wild to tbe plate, and Sunday scored, Beckley reaching third and Miller second. Dunlap made a single to right and Beckley Bcored, Kuehne's sacrifice hit brought Miller home and Sunlap was put out at third, retir ing the side. Schrlvers muff of Smith's easy fly, Stalev's single and Wood's muff,of Sun day's little fly gained another run in the second inning. Two runs were earned in the tbird In ning on singles by Miller and Fields, a double by Kuehne, a stolen base and a sacrifice hit by Smith. A two-bagger by Miller and another by Kuebne earned another run in the fifth in ning and in the ninth three singles by Sunday, Dunlap and Kuehne, respectively, brought in tho last run. Tne visitors never looked like scoring. Mc Quaid umpired fairly well.

Charley Foley Has a Few Sympathizing Words for the Team News From the New1 Yorkers Bock Ewlnc Thinks That July 4 Will be n Turning; Folnt. Boston. June 28. The Bostons are now on their first Western trip, and their "four straight" at Pittsburg gave the ball cranks of this cultured bnrg a chance to test thefr lung power. Every afternoon, while the Bostons are playing away from borne, we have a miniature game ot baseball in the large and commodious Music Hall. The admission is 10 cents; reserved seats 10 cents extra. The games are depicted npon a' large blackboard, and every play through out the game is communicated to tbe audi ence when the news arrives by telegraph. When the games start in the West it is nearly 'S o'clock here, and this helps the Music Hall attendance, many people drop ping in to see how the games are going after their day's! work is finished. There Is nothing new in this scheme; it originated in tbe South as far back as 188i, and has been in operation at other points since tben with poor success. It may prove a go here, but I donbtit Pittsburg had poor luck against Boston, but they deserve the highest praise for the gallant stand tbey made during the three last contests where one run gave the Bostons a victory each time. Indianapolis beat Boston by one run on Monday, and Cleveland crawled out of a very small hole by scoring four runs in the lat Inning wben "tbe Phillies" bad them 4 to 2. How those Cleveland kids are playing ball, and what wonderful luck tbey are having! They are the sandiest lot of youngsters playing ball, to-day. I suppose Loftns is getting all tbe praise like Jim Hart Nonsensel Where is tbere a better general than Anson, and just look at tbe poor ball his team are putting up. Loft us and Hart are good disciplinarians, but they are much harder losers than Horace Phillips, Billy Barnie and other veterans. Horace is a cooler, and no mistake,but the man bas had a terrible bit of sickness, and is far from being a well man. "Is it advisable to play this morning?" said one of the Triumvirs to Jim Hart on tbe morn ing of the 17th of June Bunker Hill Dav. "Playl" exclaimed Hart "Well, I should say so; we want all the games we can get and Washington is scared to death of us." The grounds wero very wet but Hart insisted upon playing and much to bis disgust the Senators won with ease. The Washingtons are no draw ing cards in this city: but this year they have three Boston men Wise, Morrill and Irwin and bad the day been fine I feel confident tbat tbe attendance wonld have reached close to 15,000 in the two games. Last Labor Day, in this city, tbe Washingtons drew 14,000 people to both games and tbe Bostons were away down In tbe race at the time. The holiday attendance in this city is something marvelous. How about the arrest of a few prominent Boston players in PitUburgT We heard it was Kelly; then again some man, supposed to be Bennett gave a fictitious name and paid a small fine. Pittsburg smoke doesn't agree with some of the boys, and while in your city tbey like to get their "old tanks lined" as a preventive against diphtheria. Tom Bond, once the famous pitcher of the Boston team, is now umpiring the college games and giving perfect satisfaction. Bond is married into a well-to-do German family, and has two children a boy and girl. Galvm 'is away ahead of Bond as a family man. Sadie Houck, an old Leaguer, Is living in this city. Sadie is known as "tbe man of nerve," and can out talk anybody in town. His tongue resembles an acrobat on the horizontal bar it swings both ways without losing its equi librium. James Bent an old friend of Jimmy Galvin's, died In this city a few months ago. Bent was a famous sporting man, and while in the Buffalo club, Galvin took a sail down tbe harbor with him. and admired tbe beautiful scenery. On the return trip Galvin couldn't admire the scenery at all. Blondie Purcell and I were in tbe same boat Mike Kelly is taking good care of himself this season, if all accounts are true. Kell's head was rather large when he struck here this spring; but after his arrival he began "ducking his nut" in our beautiful and exhilarating Co chltuate water, and it is sincerely hoped by his many friends myself not among the number that he will be able to get on his 7-dicer by the'time the leaves begin to fall; this fall and no other fall. That's all. Ckabi.es J. Folst. FESSENDEN MUST GO. So Say the Authorities nt League Head- , , quarters. 'WASHrNaioir, June 29. There was great ex citement here last Wednesday, when the news was received tbat tbe Senators made a de termined strike at Pittsburg, and finally won a game. But few persons credited the 'report but wben all the returns were in there was con siderable rejoicing. Hank O'Day's friends were particularly happy, for tbey have claimed for several weeks tbat Hank is In prime condition and anxious to take bis regular turn in the box. His work on Wednesday was excellent, and it Is to be hoped that he will keep it np. Such strikes meet with the hearty approval of the patrons of the game at this end of the line. Wihnot and Hoy seem to be keeping up their good work right along and Manager Morrill has adopted the suggestion I made two weeks ago in playing Connie Macs as often as convenient The score indicates tbat his three hits mnst have been very timely, Irwin ana Carney, who preceded him, are credited with four of tbe six runs. Tom Daly is making himself useful, and it appears that he was a rich find. Sam Wise bas replaced Sweeny at third, and is putting up a pretty stiff game, according to alfaccounts. There is still a chance for Swee ny to make his mark in tbe League, for Mana ger Morrill does not intend to let such a prom ;mg youngster get away. He weakens bis game by trying to imitate Jerry Denny in bis apparently slow and mechanical movements. Jerry may have a peculiar way of going at his work, but he is not slow in handling a balLaf ter be gets his hands on It Sweeny is not as active on his feet as tbe big third baseman, nor is he the swift accurate thrower tbat the latter is. Several changes In the League staff of um pires will shortly be announced. Barnnm and Fessenden are marked for removal. Indeed. Barnum's resignation was accepted nearly a week aeo. It has been kept aulet because President Young did not want to be overrun with applications for tbe vacancies; besides he wanted to secure tbe services of certain men in a quiet and orderly manner. Curry will be pro moted to tbe regular staff, and Phil Powers, of the International League staff will succeed Fesenden. Who will be selected as the emer gency man in place of Wes Curry has not been determined. President Young. In speaking of tbe proposed changes, remarked that while he considered Fessenden a good umpire, he is hardly up to the requirements of tbo League. Barnum Is a hard-working, conscientious man, but be Is not made of the right stufT for a suc cessful member of the staff. Complaints have been made against Barnum and Fessenden by men who were never before known to make a kick against an umpire. Poor old Jim Whitney bas been released by the Hoosiers as being worthless. Jim Is a bright and shining light in the Brotherhood, and is one of tbe men who kicked against his classifi cation. In his case. If in no other, the player received more than be deserved. The Brother hood ought to refer Jim's case to the special committee if only to show tbe world that Presi dent Young, in classifying Jim gave bim the benefit of the doubt and classified bim several degrees higher than be sbonld have been. Whitney claimed 3.000, when his work proves tbat he was not worth $3,000, for the Indianapo lis cheerfully parted company I with him and did not ask any one to take bimloff their hands. They appear to have been glad to get rid of him. George Shoch has accepted an offer from the Milwaukee club, and left bere last Wednesday lor his new field of duty. He is under instruc tlons to join his new companions at Omaha. Shoch had several good offers from clubs in tbe East bnt he concluded tbat the Western Asso ciation is apt to give him more permanent em ployment He wiil command a good salary, and he will try to earn every cent ho receives. He proposes to leave his wife here, as he regards Washington as his place of residence. Mil waukee is to be congratulated upon picking up such a desirable man. He will surely make ha marK in tbe Western Association. Ebrlgbt bas concluded to return to California and rejoin his old companions on the slope. Arthur Irwin is picklngupin his general play, and he may pull the Senators out of the tail end .'lace before tbo season closes. Jnnn Morrill has full control of the Senators and tbe finances of the club during tbe present trip. "Count" Burket only went as far as Bos ton with the team. There is an attempt to create a Denny boom In this city. Brother McGil, of the -Pojt insists that Jerry will be a Senator In a few davs. Well, as Kate Castleton wonld say: '"Maybe he will, but I donbtit" The local newspaper men and the policemen expect to play their third came at Capital Park next Monday. As each team has won a game tbe saw-off promises to be quite exciting. Prof. John Philip Sausa. of tbe Marine Band, has consented to umpire tbe game, and in addition, he will order out the full band to give a concert during the contest The proceeds of the enter prise go to swell the police relief fund. B, M. Laxxxb. THE GIANTS' NEW GROUNDS. They Are to be Magnificent Back Swine's Prediction. N-jrw Yob-e, June 20v The New York Club now have a new ground that, when finished, will be as fine as any in'the country. To be sure the New Polo Grounds, as it will be known, will not be as large as the old Polo Grounds, but.it will be large enough to answer every purpose. It is 400 feet wide by 40 feet deep, and fxoa tbo center field ftace to the hem plate there will be a space of 280 feet quite sufficient for an outfield. Work was begun on tbe pew grounds on Monday morning last and by next Saturday night tbe new grand stand will be finished and tbe diamond will be in a fit condition to play on. It is going to be one of tbe quickest constructed ball grounds tbat bas probably ever been built It is located under a bluff, some 200 feet high, and tbere can be no fear from tbe early soring and late fall cold winds. In fact there can he no fear from the wind at all. for there la no way for the wind to get down to the ball field. While the work Is being pushed on tbe new grounds the team Is in the West in a badly crippled condition, still tbey are battling" for victory for all they are worth. It is generally tbe New Yorks way of playing bait When all the men are In condition, tbey seem to take It for granted that they mnst win, but wben about one-half of tbe men are laid np, from some cause or other, tbey go in like so many madmen and knock the cover off tbe ball. That is tho way they did in Chicago, and tbat is wby tbey won so many games as they did. Buck Ewlng is of the opinion that the Fourth of July will see the most critical ooint of the season past, and tbat if tbe New Yorks can win two games on that daytbere will be no cause for complaint It is qnite plain that Buck is out for tbe dust tbfs season, or be would never risk being Injured by going in, to catch Crane, as be did in Chicago. It bas always been the opinion In this city that Buck was afiaid to handle Crane's curves, but this idea must now be cast aside. It has long been a well-known fact that Back was tbe leading man on the team, and on him rests tbe winning or losing of the League championship. All New York hare their eyes on tbe Boston team, bnt no one seems to be much afraid of the Bean-eaters, for they are considered a lot of quitter). J. H.M. Additional sporting; on slrtb pace.
