tILAIIKQ BALL GAMES FOB STAKES
Doubtless an apology is necessary to base-
1 tall enthusiasts for givinj: a sport like pug
ilism the greatest prominence at the zenith
of the baseball season. To do this nay be
surprising to many and may be taken as a
.terrible omen, but, notwithstanding all this,
the Sullivan-Kilrain fight must take pre
cedence on this occasion. It is the one ab-
aorbing topic in the sporting world of Amer
ica, and is a popular theme among all
classes of citizens. I, therefore, hope that
this innovation of mine will be pardoned by
the good cranks who uphold the greatest of
all outdoor sports baseball. Now about
the '"greatest fight ever known in history;"
cfyCbarse this is a very sweeping and inter
citing qualification, and it is amusing to so
quality it before even the ring
JLii pitched. However, the great question
' that is now taxing the public mind is: Will
therebeafijihtr I confess that matters look
tTery uncertain and there is nobody to blame
t tor this uncertainty but the parties themselves.
t The friends of the principals have been giving
f a notoriety to the affair during the last few
' days that beats anything on record in a pugil
istic way. In traveling South partisans,
Iriends, backers and even the principals them-
selves have publicly declared themselves at
every stopping place. In turn each has said
that he means to pulverize tho other in very
short order, and the announcement has been
wired throughout the length and breadth of
the land. Immense crowds are already in New
Orleans making extensive preparations for
excursion trains, and telegraph companies aro
making extraordinary efforts to extend their
wires to tho ring. In view of all this can it
be wondered at that the civil authorities
Should step to the front? How dare Governors
under such circumstances stand passively by
'With folded arms? It is not too much to say
that there is reason to suspect that civil or
military interference is courted by parties in
terested. If this is not so, then tho manage
ment of the proposed battle is about the worst
that we can lay hands on. However, we can
rest assured that if the Governors of the
Southern States mean half of what they say
there will be Ho fight at the localities already
agreed upon, and if such be the case we can
make up our minds to bear and read all kinds
of stories as to bow this party and that party
has schemed to have the battle stopped.
About Ihe Retail.
However, we must, for the nonce, take it for
granted that the fight will take place. We
must presume this so as to make a final state
ment about the respective chances of the con
testants. Last week I finished by saying there
would probably be some reliable information
as to the condition of Sullivan. During the
last two or three days I have heard from two
sources as to the condition the big pugilist is
In. One source is through a piominent citizen
tere who had a confidential letter from Mul
doom The latter sajs that Sullivan is in the
very best condition, and St to fight for a man's
life. My other informant is a friend of my
own who is on very intimate terms with Sulli
van. My friend states that Sullivan is "j list as
jit as a fiddle." Well, now, testimony of this
kind is too strong to refute, and I therefore
must understand that Sullivan is really in the
condition above stated. However, I will still
use the word "if," and I'll say if Sullivan is in
the shape stated he will likely defeat Kilrain.
1 don't look upon Sullivan's victory as a cer
tainty; not by any means. I merely say that I
would sooner back Sullivan than Kilrain, but
I would certainly liot bet 2 to I on Sullivan. I
am aware that there is such a craze in favor of
Sullivan that it needs any amount of pluck to
ay a word in behalf of Kilrain. If the majority
is right in this instance Kilrain will assuredly
be battered into a helpless mass before 1M
minutes are over. However, wild assertions are
easily and cheaply made. We all remember
how Jem Smith was coin; to kill Kilrain and
how Sullivan was going to knock Mitchell into
a jelly, and we ail know of the different re
sults. There is a common sense war of loosing
at Kilrain's side of the matter. He is being
backed and handled by some of the shrewdest
xuen connected with tho prize ring. If he were
the mark that we are told he is surely these
people wouldn't risk $10,000 on him. His party
knows Sullivan's measure to a great extent
and they ought to kuow that of their own man.
Mow I believe in giving ci edit to these people
for having an idea ol what they are doing.
True, Kilrain has done nothing terrific in
a prize ring, nor has Sullivan. The
tatter's victory over Ryan is hardly worth
recalling. It took Ilvan, when full of vigor
and activity, nearly a day to defeat a broken
down old man, and since then Paddy has been
an easy mark for Cgntcrs of all classes. As far
as prize-ring records are concerned Kilrain's
is. just as good as Sullivan's. The latter has
earned bis glory and popularity by glove con
tests on platforms and stages, which Is entirely
different to fighting on the turf in a 24-foot
ring. However, I have a reason for thinking
that Sullivan's chances of victory are better
than those of Kilrain. Sullivan is liable at anv
time to land one of bis swinging blows, and if
lie does the jig will soon be up. On the other
band, Kilrain cannot hit with the disastrous
effect of Eullivan. and if the latter
it in the best of condition I am per
suaded that he will be prepared to
take one if there Is a chance for his powerful
return. Of course, we may expect Kilrain to
repeat Mitchell's tactics to a very great extent,
and if he can do tbis as well as Mitchell did
Sullivan will be a beaten man. But it is hard
to understand how Sullivan did not learn some
thing in his Mitchell fight. If ho isnotwisor
and a better ring tactician now than he was
then, be had better wash his hands of rrac
lighting. I believe he will disolay more knowl
edge on Monday, if the fight takes place. It is
these two points then that lead mo to favor
Sullivan's chances more than those of Kilrain,
viz: His powerful rushing and hitting, com
bined with a better knowledge of the ring than
when he met Mitchell. Certainly I deem it a
great loss to Sullivan that a man like Arthur
Chambers is not to be his guide in the ring.
Chambers has had practical experience, and is
well versed in all the tricks of the ring. He
would be eqnal to Mitchell. As it looks, it
would seem that Kilrain will nave the best
seconds, and that is important.
An Unfair Feature.
There is afesture which I wish to point out
which is decidedly nnfair to Kilrain. It seems
to be the opinion cf many that if be wins there
will be little credit in his victory, because, it is
agreed he cannot possibly win if Sullivan is in
good condition. Nowthisis far from generous.
It Is the duty of all of us to give credit where
Tedit is due, and we are told at present lwth by
oullivan and his trainer that the former was
never in better shape in his life. However, if
Kilrain defeats there seems to be an under
standing that defeat will mean bullivan was
not in good condition. Thus there is to be no
glory for Kilrain In anyway. Doubtless the
popular sympathy is for Sullivan, and his gen
erous and good hearted career has earned that
pnpafarity, but this should not deter ns from
voting fairly with his opponent.
Importance of the Battle.
rom a pugilistic standpoiut we all must re
i tbe proposed battle of the utmost im-,-tance.
If the contest takes place it will
probably settle the vexed question as to who is
jbampion pugilist of America, and will give us
i better idea than what we have as to wbais
She best fighter in tbe world. We have already
teen how Kilrain compares with Smith, the
jest roan tbe Englishmen have, and it is safe to
jay that Smith is as good as Jackson, the big
solored roan. It follows, then, that if Sullivan
ian settle Kilrain with half the ease that his
mtliuslastlc admirers think be can, be will by
ill odds be tbe best man living to-day. I don't
ilnk there was ever such widespread Interest
n a p'lze fight in this country before as there
1 in the proposed battle underlined for Mon
day. There is apparently not a class of citizens
in America whe aro not more or less interested
in the affair, and this intense interest has
sprung up with a spontaneity that
is remarkable. 1 don't hesitate to say that
no battle in the prize ring has ever taken
such hold of the public attention siuce that
nicmorabio contest between Tom Sayers and
J. C, Heenan. I can well remember tbe extra
ordinary interest tnerewasln that battle; In
deed, it was so great that in one Instance a cer
tain schoolmaster, a good mul, one of those
that Goldsmith tells us about, dispersed the
school in tho afternoon to go and leam the
news of the battle. I venture to say that on
Mondav Ihero will be intense excitement in
every city in America. During tbe last few
dajs I have not only been exceedingly inter
ested, but also amused at tbe earnest way gen
tlemen of all classes have shown their eager
ness to learn something "on the inside" about
the fight On Taesday las:, I met a well known
pastor of tbis city and he remarked to me:
'Don't you think it is brutal to flghtT" I be
gan to explain that it "was not as brutal
as kicking, cutting or shooting and that If men
couldnse their hands bettertherewonldbe fewer
cowardly and fatal weapons used. I soon dis
covered, however, that my friend, the pastor,
was heart and soul interested in tbe fight, and
had read everv published line about it. His re
mark about brutality, I eventually considered,
had been used to impress me with the fact of
my friend's position. I could relate several
more incidents that have come under my ob
servation during the Keek, Incidents in which
prominent people have figured, and who are
general! v thought to have the most repulsive
feelings toward a prizefight. All this shows
that the proposed right is of more importance
than any that has taken place In America. It
is also safe to say that ever body who is taking
the least interest in it desires to see it have a
definite result, that Is, that one of the con
testants will win. A draw will have a very un
favorable effect to pugilism.
I.ocnl Bnsebnll Topics.
It may not be palatable to tbe baseball
cranks to find at this particular season of the
j ear the national game has comparatively to
take a back seat. However, baseball this
week is only secondary, and very secondary at
that. This statement may carry with it the
conviction that the entire world of sport and
amusement is demoralized, but the statement
is true for all that, and 1 don't think the heav
ens will fall because of the fact. During the
week matters have been quite lively in the
local baseball world. The home club has been
playing in first-class style, and as a result the
attendance at the games has been good. Tbe
crowds on the Fourth go a long way toward
proving that if we had a winning team here its
patronage would be of an extraordinary kind.
It is inherent in human nature to like to be on
the s de of the victors: defeat has always a de
pressing effect, and invariably kills all or al
most all interest in the affairs at issue. These
pliin, everyday truths pointedly show bow
profitable a winning team would be in this
city, xnere is a tremenaous amount oi uac
ball enthusiasm in tbis city, apd
depend upon it victories bring it out. By these
remarks I do not wish to insinuate that
the club offic.als or the players are not doing
thoirbst to win every game possible. I be
lieve they are doing everything they can do to
defeat every team that comes their way. Tbe
prospects of victory are certainly better now
than they have been this season. Morris never
pitched better In his life than he is doing now,
and that means a great deal. Both himself and
friends feel satisfied that be will, bar accident,
last the season out in good form. An official of
the club told me tbe other day that Conway is
almost all right, but he is anxious to have his
arm thoroughly well before he re-enters the
box. He can please himself as to when he re
sumes work, as be is not on tbe pay roll. It is
expected, however, that he will be in the box
within a few days and that be will show up in
bis old time form. Galvin and Staley are work
ing away in their usual condition and Garfield
is now on tbe sceue. Captain Dunlap speaks
very well, indeed of Garfield. The young man
is reported to have lots of speed and a tolerably
fair control of the ball.
But when the old pitchers are in good con
dition I fail to see the wisdom of putting tbe
youngsters in to pitch. That old adage to the
effect that it's best to let well enough alone is
worth while remembering now and again.
That veteran, Harry Wright, told me the other
day that three good pitchers are plenty for"a
club to carry, and, he added, that he can
always get along best when he has only tbe
three, providing they are in form. If Conway
was all right tt" borne team would have four
excellent pifhers, and that number certainly
ought to keep things all right. To make experi
ments now would be very inopportune, because
the pennant race is just at a ttage when vic
tories couut considerably. Although two such
good players as Beckley and Maul have been
disabled their absence has not materially af
fected the results. Carroll has really filled
Beckley's place well, and Jocko Fields and
Miller nave not only looked ably after left
field, but tbey have been hitting the ball.
Fields particularly has used tbe stick with
great success. Altogether the team has done
very well during the home series, except in the
Still nncging Fire.
Nothing definite has been done toward dis
cussing matters between the Brotherhood and
tbe League yet. The magnates don't seem dis
posed to be in any hurry to have grievances, real
or unreal, remedied. However, this apparent
lack of energy must not be taken to mean that the
league is nut disposed to meet the .Brotherhood.
Intimations have been made to the effect that the
League is not Inclined to deal w th the mat
ter, bach can hardly be the case. There is
plenty oi time before the season is over, and were
the meeting to be held now nothing definite could
be done until tbe end of the season. 'X be magnates
may take this view of tbe matter and are, there
fore, not Inclined to be in a hurry. However, a
meeting between the parties must be held, and It
would seem foolish to expect that the League will
not give the players a hearing. The League is too
shrewd in business affairs to refuse to grant any
such request. As has been pointed out in these
reviews already, there are some very grave ques
tions to be discussed, and these questions cannot
po.siblj- be Ignored, it would certainly be a wise
policy to begin and discuss tbeui as soon as possi
ble, because thelrgrarlty and complexity demand
that they receive the most careful atten
tion, 'lbere is a principle underlying the
fiowe and White matter that must be
dealt with, and the troth is tnat If
the brotherhood had a question worthy
their attention it Is the principle or the case re
ferred to. Ihe fact that either Mr. Stearns or
anybody else can amass Sou, WOor 00,000 by traffick
ing in the abilities of other men, even against the
will or tbe latter, I. a very serious matter. Sooner
or later there will be a change In this system. In
logic and Injustice 1 think tbe players have the
be.t of the argument If a player improves
during his star with anv team he ought certainly
toreielte a share of the increased value of bis
services when he Is sold, lbere Is no club that
pays a player an extra salary because of what he
mar turn uut to be: each nlaver. that la aecordlnr
Mo the general rule. Is paid Just what he Is worth
jur me nine ueiuK. u ue euucaies ana aeveiops
himself lntoaun-t-classmau, Itlshardlvlalrthat
those who have been pa) injr him only moderately
snoald be allowed to sell him at a high tlgare ana
the player not receive one cent of tbe money that
his improved services have commanded. This
question seems to me to be the most Important
that will be dealt with, and It cannot be discussed
Fentnrea of tbe Straggle.
Tbe pennant race is becoming more interesting
every day, and things that seemed certain a few
weeks ago look very uncertain now. It is not
long since we heard on every side that Boston's
lead was so great that nobody wonld overhaul it.
However, as I predicted, Boston has. somewhat
weakened during its Western trip. Doubtless the
Bostons are a fine lot of ball players, but the fact
remains that there is an unsteadiness about them
that ought not tn be found in champions. Irue,
they are still lirst, but the others are gradual y
closing with them. The Boston's pitchers are
pounded too frequently to be winners of tbe pen
nant. I fall to see how Boston can compare favor
ably with the Hew lorL team, 1 still
bold the opinion that with equal chances
the lew York are the best lot of
players in the country, and I further claim
that if Boston had met with tbe same difficulties
that have beset the path of the Giants this season
tbey would have been well down the list. Ih the
early part of the season Boston obtained a good
lead by meetlug clubs that were In the direst
difficulties. In my estimation all that Is needed
for the .New Yorks to get Into first placets for
Kecle and elch to keep In good repair. Cleve
land continues to keep near tue top, and the team
seems to nurse Its pitchers with such extra
ordinary care that we mar, I think, safely come to
the conclusion that It will never be far from the
top. l'blladelphla Is playing worse now than It
lias ever done this season Chicago is fast getting
into shape and the race between Anson's team
and 1'lltsburg is a line one. X am induced to
tainktbatirt'lttsburg's pitchers keep all right
the team will beat Chicago. Indianapolis Is stilt
going along with that Irregularity that has
characterized It during the season, 'ihe fact Is,
that the Boosters and tbe Senators are so un
certain that few people will be surprised If neither
or them Is seen in the League next year. Tbe
eSects of a team like Washington on other cities
is seen in the fact of tbe pour attendance at the
Chicago-Washington games on rhursaay. Tne
league cannot afiord to hare such inferior teams
in its organization.
rinylng for fetakea.
If any proof of the growing Interest in baseball
In l'ennslvanlalsnieded It can be found in the
fact of so many clubs wanting to play matches for
money. 1 don't think there ever was a time when
there was such a strong desire among those so
called amateur clubs to play for stakes as there is
now. It is probable that there will be several
match games before tbe beason Is oat, and it Is not
hard to understand wby all this rivalry exists.
The local seml-proiesslonal clubs in Western
I'ennsylvanla are numerous this season andtbelr
standard ot quallt) Is good. Each oue is
alt r all engagements possible and nat
urally each tern s Itself the best,
and as a consequence there Is a bitter conflict or
opinion atonce. However, all this leeltngwlil be
good tor tbe success of baseball. If the feeling
only does not get too far or too strong. There is a
likelihood that a match will be made between tbe
McKeesports and the J. W. Scotts. These clnbs
are good ones, and doubtless a contest for S100 a
side between them wonld be a very Interesting af

SOHE.YEEY BAD BALL PLAYING,
And the Local Players Are Hiserat-Ij Beaten
by the Giants,
ANOTHER TICKfel FOE QLEYELAND.
Tbey Defeat the Boston Sleggera In a Gnat Game
Sir Timothy Keefe helped the Giants to
have sweet revenge on the local fellows yes
terday, it was not the gallant knight's
fault that the home lot were not miserably
shut out. They only made one rdn and it
was an inglorious one From start to finish
the home players were never in the hnnt,
and they played a very wretched game.
Tbey were outclassed at every stage and
angle of the game. -
The weather was fine and fully 2,600
people were present. The general expecta
tion was that another victory was in storefor
the home team, but those who so expected
were doomed to disappointment. It had
been intended to pnt Crane in to
"pitch ior the visitors, but at the last
moment Manager Mutrie deemed it safest to
try Keefe again. v"ben the latter stepped into
the box the joyous expectation rapidly van
ished from those who sigh for Pittsburg vic
tories. It is a fact that Sir Tim is looked upon
as a very tongh customer by Pittsbnrgers who
patronize ball games. He Is a gentleman who
is at any stage extremely liable to show the
most famous baseball batter where be is wrong
now and again.
KEEFB'S GOOD EFFOET.
Testerday Keefe kept the bits of the local
nice down to the modest number of two, and
certainly there should have been no runs.
Keefe was supported in excellent style. Ew-
ing, at the start, soon allayed all notions ot
base stealing by making a mark of fleet-footed
Billy Sunday. As a rule Buck is ever ready to
show up the vanity and foolish notions of
would-be base stealers. The field work of the
visitors was also good.
Probably the home team gave one of its worst
exhibitions, and it can give some very rank
ones. Almost every member in the team played
as if he had been celebrating a week's bean
bake. Tbe errors were piled up one after an
other, and the entire nine seemed more inclined
for a rest than anything else. However, to quit
even with a formidable lot like the Giants is in
itself satisfactory, and it is safe to say that no
matter how the home team bad played they
would still have been beaten. Morris' work
was very shakey, indeed, and the big people
had not much trouble in hitting tbe ball and
they hit it bard. Morris lacked speed and some
of the big men felt quite at home in front of
him. His pitching from the start was exceed
ingly tame. Fields also cave everybody to un
derstand that he had an off day at the very
start of the game. His throwing to bases was
STABTED TO BCOBE.
The visitors were first to score, and when
they did the general surroundings looked
gloomy for those who were wishing for Pitts
burg to win. Gore began the game for the
visitors and also the hitting. After two strikes
had been called on him he rapped out a hot
single to left field. Tiernan followed with an
other good one to right, and Swing's sacrifice
hit advanced each man a base. Big Roger
Connor moved slowly up to the plate with blood
in his eye and whacked the ball clean over Han
Ion's bead for two bases, bringing in two runs.
What pie Morris seemed to be. Richardson
reached first on a fumble by Dunlap, and it
looked as if tbe Giants were going to gobble
everything up In sight. Connor was now at
third and Richardson tried to pilfer second.
Fields for once made a good throw and Richard
son was nabbed amid kicking by Ewing.
O'Rourke struck out and that ended a lively
In the'tbird inning the Giants came out with
their tomahawks again. Tiernan opened the
inning, and after sizing Morris up, gently
banged tbe ball violently against the right
field fence for three bags. Tbe hit
WAS A CORKER.
Tiernan, however, didn't rest long on bis
laurels. Ewing knocked an easy bounder to
Smith, who threw Tiernan out at the plate,
but Ewing was safe. He stole second on a very
wild throw by Fields. Connor next got his base
on balls, and Richardson cracked out a single,
bringing Ewingin. Sunday fumbled Richard
son's hit long enouph to let Connor to third.
O'Rourke then made a splendid sacrifice hit to
Dunlap, and Connor scored. Hatfield reached
first on a fumble by Kuehne, but Whitney re
tired the side by a fly to the third baseman.
In tbe fourth inning two runs at a time was
kept up. Keefe led off and was retired at first.
Gore sent out a single to left and Tiernan flew
outtoHanlon. Ewing then made a scratch
bit. Gore reaching third. Dunlap threw tbe
ball wildly to third and Gore scored. Connor
knocked out a long single to left and Ewing
scored. Richardson retired tbe side by fouling
out to CarrolL In the seventh inning Richard
son made a scratch hit within the diamond and
scored on Miller's muff of Whitney's fly to left.
The home team only made one run and two
hits. The run was made in the sixth Inning.
After Carroll had been retired at second on
Dunlap's life, Kuehne sent a long and spcedv
single to Tiernan. Tbe latter fumbled it so
long that Dunlap got home. Tbe home players
never looked like scoring at any other time.

How They Stand.
Tbe following table gives tbe correct stand
ing of theCjeague clubs up to date. Tbe table
is an interesting one this week, as it Bhows how
close tbe struggle is for the first four or five
positions. New York is getting nearer the top,
and Cleveland is at tbe heels of Boston. Chi
cago is apparentlv determined to crowd Phila
delphia out, and Pittsburg is making a bold
stagger. It seems clear that Boston must have
remarkable stamina to retain tbe foremost
place much longer. The club is going borne,
however, and that will favor it wonderfully.

tCOltnxSPOHDEXCX OT THE DISPATCII.l
Washington, July 6. The Capital
City patronrof the national game have been
greatly worked up during the past week
over the various rumors in circulation with
reference to the Senatorial team. There was
some surprise and but few regrets over the
announcement that John Horrill was to be
exchanged tor Ed Andrews, as people here
wondered what Philadelphia wanted with
'"Honest" John. There was a general howl
when it was learned that Al Myers, onr
brilliant second baseman, had been sold for
H.000. On every hand President Hewitt's
motives were questioned, and numbers of
letters of protest against the deal were mailed
to him by indignant local patrons. One of the
local cranks, signing himself '"Holder of a
Reason 'ticket," suggested "that Connie Mack,
Wilntot and Hoy be sold to tbe bizhest bidder
and the remainder of tbe team taken out on a
vacant lot and shot, thus putting an end to the
Mr. Hewitt justifies bis coarse by saying tbat
he has no intention of unloading his team pre
paratory to retiring from tbe League, as some
indignant but unreasonable local enthusiasts
have charged. On tbe contrary he states that
be proposes to strengthen the team by adding
to it some more material of the Wllmot and
Hoy grade. That will be a difficult promise to
fulfill. He says Myers was dissatisfied at play
ing in a losing clnb, and expressed his desire to
get away on several occasions. Tbe sum offered
for his release was very tempting, and Mr.
Hewitt believes be will be able to do more to
help the team with that amount than he could
do by retainiug Myers.
Negotiations were immediately closed with
Cbattanooza for the services of McCoy, a prom
ising all round infielder, and be will be given a
chance at either third or second when the Sen
ators return home next Monday. He is said to
be quite a player, and bis sponsors predict tbat
he will pan out better in League company than
Harry Wright's great Southern bird, "Second
While at League headquarters yesterday
President Young showed me the schednle of

Philadelphia during tbe Indianapolis season.

tbe new Polo Grounds, in New York City, Phil
Powers, the newly appointed member of the
staff, will officiate as master of the game. The
Giants will have Horace Phillips and his Pitts
burc team as tbetr guests. Fessenden has not
been long in catching on, as I understand that
he goes from the League to the International
While the Myers deal was in progress Mr.
Hewitt was also turning a few honest pennies
in another direction. Dave Rowe, of the Den
ver, CoL, club, was very anxious to secure
George Sbocb, but bis offer came just a few
hours late. On the quiet he was informed that
"Pete" Sweeny's release was in tbe market,
and promptly made a bid for Sweeny. Satis
factory terms were agreed npon, and Sweeny
was sent to Chicago to help the Senators out
wbile Morrill Is out of condition, and thence
proceed to DenVer. In Sweeny Dave Rowe
will get one of the most promising players of
the present season. He has not had a fair
chance In Washington, as be has been contin

was uncertain of his place. R. M. Labneb.
AT HIGH WATER MARK.
Great Excitement at Ihe Home of tbe Lusty
Cleveland.' July 6. Baseball Is at high
water mark in Cleveland as I write this. Not
only the bigb water mark of enthusiasm, but
the high water mark of attendance. On tbe
Fourth over 20.00U people poured on the
grounds to witness the two games with Boston,
and tbe 10,000 tbat were present in
the afternoon shouted and bowled and cheered
themselves hoarse at the Giant Killer's sue
cess. The 10,000 that were on band in the
mornine bewailed their misfortune at not see
ing a winning game. Friday the management,
tbe local patrons and everybody else was sur
prised to see a crowd of over 5,000 out again.
The most sanguine guesser bad not predicted
mure than 3,000. and as a consequence the local
management were in high spirits. No one
begrudges them their success here, I can as
sure you. Tbey labored at a disadvantage so
long tbat everybody is glad to see tbe town
once more coming to tbe front in baseball cir
cles where it belongs. A winning club in Cleve
land, not necessarily a champlonsbip winning
team either, is a mint to the man who knows
bow to successfully manage It.
Tbe 110,000 beauty, Michael Angelo Kelly,
helped hard to loose Friday's game for Boston,
by an egregious misjudgment of a line fl. And
bow the crowd did boot the beauty! His over
weening anxiety to make a home run In another
inning lost his clnb at least a decent oppor
tunity to make a run.
Tbe Giant Killers are fielding to perfection.
Nothing like it was ever seen in this place.
Tbey nail base bit! right and left, and back up
tbe batteries with an excellency which is a
standard for other clubs to be measured by.
Tbe local Brotherhood chapter held a meet
ing on the night of July 2, and it Is safe to say
tbat the members of tbe Cleveland club will
not be found taking any rash steps in the
futnre.no matter what others do. 1liin
all well satisfied. Tbe management is treating
them just as it promised to do, and living np to
the letter in everything tbat contracts call for.
The men will oe treated as their merits deserve,
and sure y no one could ask more.
Tbe local news pertaining to tbe clnb Is very
scarce beypnd the usual playing of games.
There are no thoughts of making any changes,
and tbe club will probably last as it is through
Bakely has steadied np and is pitching won
derful ball again. The nearest he has come to
a Waterloo this season was tbe last game with
Washington, when be was unexpectedlv called
upon to go in tbe box after putting in a morn
ing of the hardest kind or exercise on the field.
We are all palling for Piltsuure at tbis end
of the line, and hope tbat tbe Smoky City
chaps will find tbe place In the procession
where tbey belong. If they get uncomfortably
near to Cleveland then we'll have to begin to
work tbe "hoodoo" on them.
Beatln is around again, after a two week's
siege with malaria, and will be in sbape by an
other week to take his regular turn in tbe box.

ABOUT THE HOOSIERS.
They Are in Dlfiscnltle With Tbeir Pitcher
Kind Word for Gelz.
Indiaitapolis. July 6. The Hoosier ball
team has finished its second series of games on
the home grounds, and left to-night for Phila
delphia in charge of Captain Glasscock. Man
ager Bancroft, who is now in New Bedford,
Mass.. where he went last week to take bis
wife and sick child, will meet tbe clnb in tbe
Quaker City, as will Martin SulUjan, who has
also been absent, on account of the death of
his wife at Lowell. Wmle the team has failed
to better Its rack during its stay at home, tbe
boys have played fine ball, and the manage
ment seems well satisfied with the present con
dition of things. A good percentage of the
games played on the local field, were won, and
tbe public has given the club, very fair sup
port. Tbe Fourth of July attendance was the
largest ever seen here and the vast crowds were
treated to fine exhibitions of ball playing.
The friends of tbe club are not speculating as
to wbat the team will do away from home; hav
ing in mind tbe poor record made on the last
trip. .However, there seems to be good reason
for the belief that the Hcosiers will make a
much better showing this time, because tbey
are in better sbape than they were during the
first tour, especially In the box.
Wbile no new men have been secured for
that department, it is equally true that Boyle
and Getzein are doing much finer pitching
than at any time since tbe season opened. Both
men have accomplished great tbinca during tbe
games at borne, and have shnwsV that tbey are
as good as any club needs. The fact remains,
however, tbat Boyle and Getzein are tbe only
pitchers the team has, that Ms, who can
be relied upon. Burdlck pitches a strong
gime now and tben, bnt his work Is not steady,
usle, the local amateur, has bein In the box
three time, but, while he shows some good
points, bis lack of experience makes him an
unknown quantity, Tbe club really needs an
other first-class pitcher, and tbe management
has made an effort to secure one. but witbout
succes. At present it looks as if Bovle and
Getzein will nave to do tbe bulk of the work in
the box. Tbe former is rather tarefnl of his
good right arm and does not UBp to go In too
often, but tbe ex-Drtroiter is always willing to
pitch when be la In shape.
- No one ever bears Getz complaining of a sore
arm, and be is one ot the hardest workers In
the business. With another pitcher equal to
either of these, however, the Hnosiers would
be able to hold their own in any class in tbe
country. Tbe management is on the lookout
for a good man, and if ono can be found
tbe price will be a secondary matter.
President Brush thinks Mr. Spaldlnc's reply to
John Ward in regard to tbe contemplated
meeting of a committee from tbe League and
one from the Brotherhood was a very sensible
view of tho matter, and says that the players
will probably ste it In tbe same light when tbey
understand the real situation. There was
not even a suggestion ot a strike here, and it
is likely that tbe players and manaeers will
have no more trouble this season. About the
only disagreeable thing the local people here
have had to contend with recently was tbe um
piring. Tbe work of Fessenden has been
something awfuL It is not claimed that be
favored one side more than another, but was
generally bad. He seems to have no idea of
balls and strikes, and frequently evens up by
trying to correct one mistake by maaing an
other. Verily, the umpire question is a tough
one. A. Y. OVKMS.
