GENERAL BASEBALL NEWS OF THE DAI
It will doubtless be interesting to patrons
of the local clnb tb know that the "White
and Howe difficulty has finally been set
tled, and that the two players named will
join the Pittsburg team at New York to
morrow or Tuesday.
Manager Phillips stated last evening that
since "White was here negotiations have
been going on with ex-President Stearns,
of Detroit, and that everything has been
satisfactorily arranged. At any rate,
Messrs. White and Eowe wired to Presi
dent Kixnick yesterday to the effect that
they wfll join the clnb at New York as stated
THE TEEMS OF SETTLEMENT.
The local officials refuse to state what the
terms of settlement are, bnt it is understood
that both this club and Mr. Stearns have made
concessions to the players. The principal con
cession, it is stated, has been made by Mr.
Uteams, who has given the players half of their
purchase money. The price of each player was
reduced, that is the local club has not paid as
much for the releases as was orijrfnally bar
gained for. Part of this difference has been
Clven to the plajers by the Pittsburg club, and
Stearns has given the balance. At any rate
the players have carried their point by getting
half of their purchase money, although the
amount is not as big as it was Intended to be.
lAs soon as White and Howe join the club
there will be some important changes and it
may be that old "Pop" Smith will be for sale.
He is to be laid off as soon as Bone starts in
and Kuehne is to go to left field. It is the in
tention of the clnb to keep Kuehne as a gen
eral utility man for a time at least, but he may
be dispensed with before long, or a deal may
be made to trade him and Smith for a first
OLD POP TO LEAVE TJS.
However things mav turn out. it is under
stood that Smith will have to go, and doubt
less hundreds of patrons will recret the loss of
such an honest and gentlemanly player a
player that in many respects is as brilliant as
any man playing on the diamond to-day. He
has filled up the breach on many occasions,
and will do so again for anybody who Rets him.
Pitcher Sunning was also released yesterday.
In speaking of the matter last evening. Man
ager Phillips said: "Conway will be all right
in a few days, and he will make four regular
and tried pitchers. All the players have the
highest opinion of Garfield's ability and think
he will bo a first-class man. Carroll says that
he has remarkable speed and an original curve.
"With these statements before us, we have re
solved to part with Dunning and give Garfield
a. t-y. Altogether, I think we have great pros-
.u..ir T.ir& n1 TITtil?. .t- intn tlitnii ami
our pitchers keep in line, we'll let the Eastern
people know that we are on deck."
A dispatch from Buffalo says: The big fight
between James U White and John C Bowe,
owners of the Buffalo Baseball Club and the
National Baseball League has come to an end.
White and Bowe start for Pittsburg to-morrow
night to play out the season with that nine.
Tney each receive at the rate of 83,500 a year,
and will divide over and above this, 2,500 of
the purchase money paid for tbem to Detroit.

could do nothing at all with TIbby's pitching,

til Steitz came to the rescue, who fared better.
The feature of tbe game was the batting of

were defeated here to-day in a somewhat pe

runs in the first inning and ten in the fifth. The
came was no brilliant one by any means, En
glish having four errors at short, and Roach
and W. Purcell doing little, if any, better. A
magnificent double play by Wickline and Kerr
and Robert Shaw's batting were the features
of tbe contest. Each nine vias weakened by

McKeespobt, Pa., Jnly 7. The McKees
port Baseball Club defeated tbe East End
Athletics this afternoon by 1 to Sin the best
game that has occurred here since toe league
season opened. The game was witnessed by a
big audience, but it is safe to say that it would
have been between 2.000 and 8,000 but for the
races. The visitors, who defeated the home
team soma time ago, are now aware that the
club, which is in the league for the pennant, is
a mean obstacle and they have got to "play ball"
to down them. Every run made during
the came was worked for, both club's
played hard. Gumbert pitched a
good game and was excellently
supported by Schoyor. who did good work at
second, but Gumbert was well slugged, while
Gilleland, who was nicely supported by Far
row, astonished the visitors, and waived them
down In one, two, three order, striking out
13 men to Gumbert's four, and striking ont
seven consecutively Tbe leading sluggers
were struck out by him with ease. The field
ing of both teams was fine. Grey and Night
ingale did excellent work at second, andTener,
who was poor at tbe bat, held down first to his
usual standard. The single-handed stops
madebyQuinn and Gumbert were features,
while the batting of Hartman and Torreyson
was very heavy. Frovins cheated the visitors
out of several rnns by scooping in many flies
in left Umpire Rose was very satisfactory.

Some Interesting Facta About the American
Flyers Across tbe Sen.
A European correspondent who has dipped
deeply into the American market and has met
with disappointment, writes as follows: "I am
astonished that most of the Imported harness
horses are what is called in your country
skates,' except Bine Bell, Misty Morning.
Polly (Utopia?) and Grandmont, a stallion
which would beat 2:20 over Cleveland track
sure. Watt is a puller and unreliable. JoseS
over the smooth tracks, if not pinched, Is a
fair mare, but bad actor. James G was a great
horse over the Vienna track, but broke down
in tbe sixth heat in the hind leg, and some
think it is an old thing. A horse like James
G, but sound as a ..dollar, would be -the
right' kind for Europe. Judge Davis is
an old-timer and must start in the free
for all. Harry Tborndale and Beauty Bright
will not do here. The mare is too small to go
up and down bill and is a toe-weighter. At
lantic requires tbe finest kind of care, and hav
ing failed to get it is away off. Valkyr Is bet
ter, bnt not good enough to beat the good
ones. Tbe qneen of tbe trotting tnrf in Europe
remains Polly, a square-gaited. game mare, fair
actor, wears light shoes, is a great stayer, and
can go over roads and tracks hard or soft. She
showed over the Vienna course 221. and over
tbe Welsseusee three miles a 2.31 clip all the
way. She went to Russia to try conclusions
with the Russian trotters. She is tbe first
American horse going there. Should she beat
them all it will open up a great market in Rus
sia for American stallions.
"The Government long ago organized stnd
farms and bnys horses for tbe public use to Im
prove tbe breeding of pleasure and harness
horses, on the same principle that the Aus
trian and German governments buy thorough
bred stallions, sometimes at a price equal to
$25,000 each, in order to get a strain that is
wanted in cavalry and racehorse breeding. I
send you the programme for tbe Russian races
at Moscow. It is published in French, and. as
you will see, all the races are free-for-all with
out handicaps. Every horse has his own track.
The weight of driver and sulky is about 250
pounds, A standing start is given, and
most of the races are from two to three
miles. The Russian Government pays 1000
roubles expenses for each American horse that
comes. But Polly is the only one that is con
sidered good enoujsb to go there. Now it has
been thoroughly proven that the .kind of trot
ter which requires a billiard table to trot on
and a skilled mechanic behind him is a pick
pocket here, even if be can speed a two-minute
gait. Guy recently sold for $30,000 In yonr
country, would not be worth 53,000 here. The
ideal trotter for Enrope, so far as I understand
the business, wonld be one like Edwin Thorn
or Driver, before tbe long campaigning had
used np their speed and strength.'

Some First-CInss Sport and Good Racine at
Monmouth Park, July & To-day every
thing at this track was as bright as a new dol

the grand stand was a comfortable place. The

of tbe question. Pearl Jennings, Grimaldl and
Bine Rock were for a longtime equal favorites.
Numerous scratches reduced the field in the

ENGLISH TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIP.
Great Contest for the Title American
Cricketers In England.
, IBT CABLE TO Till DISPATCH.!
London, July 6. Copyright. The final of
single-handed matches for the all-comers' prize
in connection with tho all-England lawn tennis
championship, played at Wimbledon this after
noon, was marked by an exdting fight between
W. Rensaaw, who has held the championship
for seven years and H. 8. Barlow. The superb
play of both men aroused the enthusiasm of
the enormous concourse of spectators, and for
a time it seemed as Jhongh the champion
would be beaten. Renshaw, however, man
aged to win by three sets to two, S-fl, 57, 8-6,
10-8, 8 On Monday Renshaw will play his
brother Edward fir the 100-guInea challenge
enp, whlcb he now holds. The ladles' single
handed 60-gninea challenge cud was also de
cided at Wimbledon to-day. Miss Dods, cham
pion for the past two years, did not appear to
defend the title, which was won by Mrs. Hill
yard, who beat Miss L. Rice easily.
Tbe Philadelphia cricketers are resting to
day. On Monday they commence a match at
Edinburg against the gentleman of Scotland,
and will probably win. The Massachusetts rifle
men ware to-day the guests of jovial old Major
Mackenzie, of the Horable Artillery Company,
at his place in Essex. The visit was thoroughly
enjoyed, thanks to tbe lovely weather, Dut it
was devoted as much to business as pleasure,
several hours being spent in practicing with
Martini Rifles. Tbe men would prefer to shoot
at Wimbledon wlta Sprlngfields. bnt believe
thev will make a good show with tbe English
weapon. The British riflemen who have seen
tbe Massachusetts men shoot say there may be
some trouble at Wimbledon about tbe position,
which is not up to the cast-iron stiffness pro
vided by tbe army regulations enforced bv the
National Rifle Association. Sergeant Doylo
in particular, say the critics; will have to mod
ify his present standing attitnde, in which he
grips tbe barrel at the furthest point that his
long arm can reach. It Is not probable, bow
ever, that the Wimbledon regulations will be
unduly strained against the visitors, whose
popularity here increases daily.
