BOSTOK BEATEN BY 1E CHICAGOS.
A flew Manager for the McKeesport County
l9rmn Tpm. '
GENERAL BASEBALL KETYB OP THE DAI-
The announcement was made yesterday
"that the local baseball club had signed two
new,pitchers, viz.: Sowders, of Boston, and
Fitzgerald, of "Wilkesbarre. Eaia pre
vented another slaughter of the Pittsburg
team. The Hoosiers beat N ew York in an
11-inning game. Manager Torreyson in
tends to resign from the McKeesport club.
The officials of the local ball clnb have
made another effort toward getting the team
pnt on to a victorious pathway. Two new.
pitchers have been signed, but it remains to
be seen whether or not the ventnre is a
profitable one. It is true, however, that
good or bad the deal cannot well make mat
ters any worse than they are at present It
does not seem wide of the mark to say that
the local club was never in such a miserable
rnt as it is now, and the clnb officials de
serve credit for the plucky way in which
they bare faced the misfortunes and so readily
put up the cash to make things better.
Well, the latest move Is the signing of
Pitcher Sowders. of Boston, and Fitzgerald, of
Wilkesbarre. It Is not likely that the patrons
of the club will co wild over the deal: the truth
is It does not look excellent on paper, whatever
It may turn ont to be practically. The signing
of Sowders suggests two or three interesting
features. The first is,
WHY HAS BOSTOJT RELEASED HIM?
It is a notorious fact that Boston is about as
deep in the mud for pitchers as Pittsburg is in
the raire; at any rate Boston agents are scour
ing the country for one or two good pitchers.
The lack of sufficient pitching power is appa
rently the rock on which Boston is likely to
split. This being so. it is quite natural to ask
if Sowders is a good man, why is Boston part
ing with him?
Of course there may be other reasons and it
Is definitely stated that there aro other reasons.
It is claimed that Sowders is not by any means
satisfied with the treatment he has receired at
Boston. There has been considerable trouble
between him and the club about bis salary, and
as a result good authorities state he is very in
different about bis work at Boston. However
the fact remains that Sowders was a good
pitcher last season, and has done fairly well
this season. His work this year, however, has
been short of that of last year. It may be in
teresting to give the record of Sowders for last
year. He made his appearance In the League
last year and pitched 34 came', winning 19 and
losing 15. He won four'gameg from Pittsburg )
and lost two. In the total number ot games
be pitched there were 69 earned runs. His bat
ting percentage was .147, which placed him 87th
on a list of 95 players.
A member of the local club stated last night
that Sowders has been released by Boston so
that he will have colt the club nothing. This
does not augur well for his form. However, it
will only be fair to wait and see what the re
The other young man signed is Fitzgerald, of
the Wilkesbarre club. There have been many
strong things said in praise of this young man
recently. Ted Sullivan spent several days at
"Wilkesbarre lately trying to sign Fitzgerald,
but failed. It is understood that his release
has cost the club $500. So tar this reason he
has been looked upon as the best pitcher in the
Atlantic League. Last season he played with
the Wilkesbarre club In the Central League,
and ranked sixteenth in a list of 23 pitchers.
He played in 33 games; he bad IS put oats and
242 assists: 19 errors, and bad a fielding per
centage of .931. In batting ho was seventieth
in a list oi S3. He was at bat 153 times; had 18
runs, 27 base hits, 3 stolen bases, and his bat
ting average was .176.
The next question is: If Sowders and Fitz
gerald are suitable and giro satisfaction, who
will be released? One or two pitchers at least
will be released if the two new additions are
retained. To say who the released ones will be
may not be an eujr task. However, there is a
prevailing notion to the effect that either Gal
vln or Morris will be dispensed with. It is
claimed that the veteran Jimmy is rapidly and
permanently on the wane: Others claim that
Morris is an exploded man. However, it is a
fact that the officials, have more than once
lately declared themselves to the effect that
one or two of the oU pitchers had seen their
best days. c , '
y In grand form.
The Hoosiers Brace Up and Beat Mottle's
New York, July 19. The Indianapolis team
defeated the Giants to-day. The game was the
most interesting at the new grounds. The
Indianapolis men played in grand form, batting
well and doing exceptionally rood work in the
field. Crane's wild pitching also materially
aided in the defeat. His wild throw and bases on
called balls in the eleventh Inning were espe
cially costly. Score:

Cleveland, July 19. The Spiders are to
appear in new uniforms when they open here
against the Pittsburgh Reach is building the
suit. They are to be of black cloth with black
stockings and caps and white belts with "Cleve
land" in white letters on the breasts. The New
York suits furnished the idea.
The case of Sutcliffe, about which the Broth,
erhood is making a fuss, is a tame one. It
seems that the player received 32,100 in Detroit
last season and was turned over to Cleveland
In the 32.000 class. So he signed, and of course
the agreement that no player is to be reserved
for less than the salary he played for has been
violated. But who Is to blameT Certainly not
Cleveland, who did not class the man. He is
not worth more than $2,000. Sutcliffe is a good
man, but not fond of regular speed and availa
ble only behind Beatln.

More Good Contests Among the Local Lawn
SULLIYAH HEPOETED IN THIS CITI.
Hlaaoocraft Wins the Dearborn States at the Wash
ington Fork Races.
The police authorities continue to make
pugilist Mitchell's surroundings very un
comfortable. New York has become so hot
for the Englishman that he has gone to
Canada. A report was current that Sulli
van passed through this city for New York
yesterday morning. The tennis tournament
was continued and there were some good
contests. Hlndoocraft won the Dearborn
stakes at Chicago.
New Yobk, July 19. A sporting extra
this evening prints this? Charlie Mitchell,
the English pugilist, with Mike Donovan,
has skipped to Canada. Rather than run
the risk of arrest in a city where he has few
friends, among the sporting men who would
help him at a pinch, he decided to cross
over into Her Majesty's dominions.
When Mitchell arrived from the "West on
Monday he went in company with J" rank
Stevenson, it is said, to the law office of
Peter Mitchell. The two were soon closeted
with the lawyer, and in the conversation
that followed Mitchell's fears of arrest were
fully stated. On Tuesday he kept well
under cover, awaiting developments. The ar
rival of Detcctiye Norris, with a requisition
from Governor Lowry. of Mississippi, in
creased Mitchell's fears and another secret
visit was paid to bis counsel.
When it was learned beyond doubt that Nor
ris was bent upon arresting the trainer of Kil
rain, and that the New York police were as
sisting him, Mitchell's fears were undisguised.
He saw in prospect a long term of imprison
ment in a strange country.
"What would you adviser" be asked of Law
yer Peter Mitchell. VDoyou consider me safe
in New York or anywhere in the United
States!" continned the British pugilist in evi
dent distress. .
Mr. Mitchell, it is said, told the pugilist that
his case was similar to that of Red Leary. If
Governor Lowry wanted the trainers, be
would and could get them.
The Briton subsequently learned that an
other distinguished lawyer had advised a man
in a similar position to leave the country, and
on WAdnesday evening a man closely muffled
up in a summer ulster, wearing a slouch hat
and presenting the appearance of a workman
in search of employment, boarded an Erie
train at Jersey City. He took a seat in the
smoker. As the car drew out of the tunnel the
traveler tilted the soft brim of his hat a little
and lighted a cigar. He gazed thoughtfully
out of tho window, and it would have taken a
sharp eye indeed to have recognized in the di
lapidated traveler the swell English pugilist,
Charlie Mitchell. .
