Champion J. L. Sullivan.

Opinions Recardmjj the Good Showing of
American Cricketers in England.
PEDESTRIAN RECORDS KNOCKED OUT
The Pittsburg Baseball Club is still
alive and is traveling iu a moribund state
in some part of the country. A more ridicu
lous failure in the way of a ball team it
would be hard to imagine, and the wonder is
that there is any baseball enthusiasm at all
left iu this city. During the last two weeks
something like a dozen letters hare found their
way to this office pointing out where the de
fects of the team are. It would be impossible
to publish even a synopsis of the bundle. One
writer from the East End, however, winds up
a long onslaught by suggesting that the
entire team be sold, and that Buck Ewing
and Tim Keefe be bought. The balance
of the team, the writer suggests, can be made
up of policemen and Italian itinerant musi
cians. Of course, some people will consider a
suggestion like the abore worse than ridic
ulous. However, there is one thing about it,
vii the team could not be any worse then than
now. Of course, there is a cause for the mis
erable showing, but to lay bands on that cause
is apparently not so easy to do as to talk about,
because dozens of causes have been named.
Certainly the .treat fault has been in the
pitchers. When a man goes into the box to
pitch and the opposing side simply batters the
ball all over the ground and all ovcrthe ad
joining wards, no captain or no manager can
belp it. Or when a pitcher strains himself so
much that l.J cannot pitch at all, no
official can - blamed for it. The
fact is, then, thv the breaking down
of the pitchers has be -. the greatest misfor
tune of the team. Uow-vcr,.it seems that the
management is not altogether free from blame.
Conway ought to have been pitching ere now
bad not a penurious spirit in the club sus
pended the joung -ian nithont pay. At pres
ent he is his onn master and nobody can blame
liim for being indiffe mt as to when he resumes
duty. The longer he remains idle the more the
club is losing. He can last the year without
working and he may do so as a means of show
ing the club that be is something more than a
child in spirit. Conway's case has been a blun
der. There is also a lack of discipline in the
club which has been going on for some time,
but the gre i est bungle so far made
was the higj handed way in which
Bore and White were dragged
here despite the faithful statements of White
to the effect that he and Rowe were not in a
condition to play. White repeatedly said that
lie and bis colleague couldn't be expected to
do as well as Smith and Kuehue for a long
time to come. Despite ibis statement the offi
cials of the club persisted in forcing the two
cx-Detroiters to play. Now they are suspended
for awhile for indifferent work, and bmith
and Kuehue are to be returned to their old
places. If this kind of instability of mind and
purpose is good business or good management
Then we may rely on the stability of the wind.
The Lntcst Den!.
Th6 report was current on Friday night that
Manager Phillips had signed Fitzgerald, of
Wilkesbarre, for $300. bonders, 01 Boston,
however, was signed, and efforts to get Fitz
gerald ceased. It may be a wise step in getting
bowders and it may not. As was pointed out
in this paper yesterday, Sowders comes from a
club that is sadly in need of pitchers. Ihis
would lead us to the conclusion that Boston
either deems Sowders no good or that the club
has plenty of good men without him. I don't
think the latter is true, but on the contrary I
am inclined to believe the former. Of course
there is nothing surprising in the Pittsburg
club picking up old and worn-out material. We
seem to have a great admiration and affection
lor the agea and exhausted. We can all re
member Hardie Henderson's appearance here.
There arc many cases on record like
Hardie's. However, bonders may be all right,
and if he does good and victorious work it
is safe tosaytbat nobody 111 be more sur
nricd and chagrined than the people ot the
Boston club. The great fault of the home club
lias ever been in its selection of new pitchers.
The records. I think, will show that in getting
bold of young men Pittsburg has been a bigger
blunderer than any other team. There must
be a definite cau-e for this, and I believe that
the lack of nerve to speculate gainel) in good
Joung men has much to dp with it. Other
clubs put up the price for good j oungstcrs; w e
seem to want them for nothing.
Chasing the Flsbtera.
One of the most singular features connected
with a very singular prize is the way in
which Governor Lonry and his emissaries are
periorming. The more one looks at the farce,
burlesque or whatever it ma be that is now
going on, the more one is convinced of either a
gigantic sham, gross incompetency or the most
unjust partiality. It is 'difficult to be
lieve that Governor Lowr was ever Jn earnest
in his talk about stopping the Sullivan-Kilraln
fight, if he was nobody tail contend that he is
at all competent for the office he was elected
to lulfili, and it iniy truth! ullj be stated that
had he made half the noise and caused half the
trouble before the battle that he has done
since it took Dlace there would have been no
Scht on his bailiwick. But why is Detective
Morris, that gentleman wbo certainly can look
after the interests of Ko. las well as any man
living, concentrating all his efforts in bounding
Mitchell: We have been informed that there
is a personal grievance between Norris and
Mitcbell, but surely the law of this country is
not to be made partial in its application be
cause of personalities of the kind referred to.
Mitchell has many faults and many enemies,
but I fail to see, as a matter of legal justice,
why the principals of the battle should be
allowed to pose before the public un
molested and a trainer of one or them
be bounded from city to city. Ihis is an un
fairness aud partiality that I venture to say no
fair-minded American will tolerate. However,
it seems as if the entire noise and doings of
Governor Lowry were all of the most ridicul
ous kind. He was given to distinctly under
stand that the fight would take place, and the
precautions he made to prevent it would
scarcely have stopped a little squabble be
tween two newsboys. Now that it is over, he
io advertising himself throughout the length
nun breadth of the land as one wbo has an ab
solute abhorrence to prize fights, and also as
one whose only aim in this life is to have law
According to the latest statements of John
L. Hullivan, he is now out for the stuff and his
drinking days are over. A declaration like
this coming from a man like Mr. Sullivan is
sJmost as surprising as the statement of Mr.
Tompkins wheu he said he was going to build
a Bridge across the Atlantic However, there
nay be some truth in the champion's announce
ment; at least we all hope there is. At any
rate. I venture to say that Sullivan at present
means what be sajs, but bis moral fortitude is
no more reliable than a rotten cane on a dark
night. There is really a good future for hulli
van; I meau that in a very short time he
can save a large amount of money, providing
he will live a steady life. There are two or
three good encounters for him yet, if he so de
sires, bmitu has finally declared that he will
come to this country and fight bullivan. I am
fully convinced that binitb's offer is genuine,
ana if Sullivan will fight him and deteat hint
lie will win a considerable amount of money. I
ccrtaiul) look upon Smith as Kilraln's supe
rior in the prize ring. I say this mindful of
the draw tbey fought. But if Sullivan would
continue b.s training process from now on Le
might be iu as good condition as he ever was
In his life. Nobody wbo knows anything at all
about pugilism will for one moment arcue that
Sullivan is In his, best condition at 208 or 210
pounds. Wers be 20 pounds less I am fully per
suaded that he could settle both Kilrain and
r mitii in one day. At bis present weight
there is always a danger of a collapse while he
if aDont 23 per cent slower Uun if iu good con
dition. It therefore seems tome tbHtSalll
ran should not for a moment hesltato to meet
Jem Smith, as chances of victory are decidedly
In tavor of the former. It is also likely that the
Australian Slavin will be willing to tackle John
I The Utter absolutely refuses to meet Peter
Jackson, because of a sentimental notion about
color. In this connection I may say that I
know of no rule which permits Sullivan to re
fuso to tight a colored man and still claim the
championship. However, prize fighting must
have arrived at a very dignified and refined
stage if the color line is drawn. Well, what I
was saying is that Slavin may, and I have
reason to believe be does, want ago with tbo
big fellow. We know little or nothing of Slavin
on this continent, but from what I have
heard and read oflilin it seems to be lie Is scarcely
up to the standard of Smith or Kllraln. There
are pood grounds for coming to this conclusion,
and if space would permit I think I conld point
the matter out bejond any doubt. We may,
therefore, come to the conclusion that SulUvan
can secure two more rijrbts at least, and
fights that will be profitable to the winner,
and he 1 likely to win both of them. Hut if
John I- Is not kept in barness, uow that he Is in,
his prospects will be a trifle worse than tbey ever
were. lie l a difficult man to reclaim when unce
he gets out ofllnc.

Everything for the great scullers' race between
II. G feearlc, of Australia, and William O'Con

At present writing 1 am favorably Impressed with
the Canadian's chances, as in my opinion he has
done greater things In public than Searic has
done. However. I am not prepared at this Junc
ture to spot O'Connor as a winner, because It may
be that there will be any amount or pood reasons
to back iiearle belore the da) or tiic race. All
that I will sar at present r: bearle ninst needs be
tbemost extraordinary sculler Australia has bad

somewhat strange to O'Connor, but he ought to
become thoroughly accustomed to it before the
day of the race.
Amrrlcnn Cricketers Abroad.
Admirers of cricket playing, or In fact admirers
of sports of any kind this side the Atlantic, will
doubtless be well pleased to learn of the good
showing that the gentleman of Philadelphia are
making In the land of cricket. There is. indeed,
much tube proud of when ourrepresentatlvcscan
face an aggrt gation like the genilemeu of Surrev
and score more than 410 rnns in an Inning. So
Jar the trip or the l'hlladelphla team showa that
cricket playing Is Improving considerably In this
country. I don't tliink It will ever become a pop
ular came here, but It does seems as If a sufficient
number of gentlemen are interested in it to keep
its standard tolerablv goodhere. 'Hie success of
the rhlladelphlaus abroad ought to have good re
sults In and about Pittsburg as tar as cricket play
ing is concerned 1 here are mauy good players
and dozens of youths are becoming Interested iu
theoldgame. With an) thing like moderate en
couragement thess youngsters may blossom into
Tbe Trolling Senson.
A few days more and we'll be fairly Into the
trotting meetings of the grand circuit. The indi
cations are that this season will be as good and
probably better than Its predecessors l'.cports
from various points show that there Is a very big
stock of youngsters and "green" ones. Ihe
purses are big and some fast records may be cx-
Sectcd. Already the two well-known pacers,
esscmer and 1 inma. have gotten far down below
the 3) mark, and the report Is common that there
are one or two dark ones that will beat these two.
However, It Is a pity that amid all this good rac

Some Fast Foot Racine.
The Britishers two or three weeks ago undoubt
edly played havoc with severalof the foot-racing
records. At the twent) -fourth annual amateur
championship sports three records were broken.
There was not a single walkover. The perform
ance of II. C. L. Tlndall was a great one. In the
quarter bis time was taken at 400 yards at which
point lie missed a world's record, to be exact, by
one-fortieth of a second bis time, 433-5 seconds,
being that undltlngulshable period of time be
hind i-ISg' seconds, made by 1. E. Myers at New
urk June 2. 1882, but It completely smashes tbe
444-5 seconds by II. K. Ball at the champion
ship meeting, btoke-on-Trent. June 30, 1882, and
also places at a discount the profes
sional 45 seconds reported to hare been
accomplished by T. Brain on tbe Don
caster Koad more than a generation ago, Febru
ary 19 lStl, At the uu-irter be accomplished a
still more wonderlul performance, making the
distance In 4S1 seconds .his effectually disposes
of Myers 4S3-o seconds (down hill finish) at tbe
championships at Birmingham, Julr 16, lbM, aud
is, of course, better thin that runnej-'s 48 4-5 at
Wllie Bridge JudlIj, 1885, while It Is within less
than two yards of Dick Buttery's 4SM seconds at
Clatcshcad, October 4, 1873. Felling also did a fine
performance, and the all-round quality was
proved by all the starters getting within the
standard. To cap all 'llndall turned out later on

record. Here, too. all the starters gained stand

Barry, Queen's College. Cork, who has recently
built up a series of "leats of strength1 records In
America. In tbe hammer throwing he sent, from

siderably the best ever accomplished In a cham

tions unlimited run, and very long handles In

in New ore. There are some other general sub
jects that I would have discussed this week, but

The Pittsburg Baseball Club reappeared
at Philadelphia again yesterday and suf
fered two defeats. Tbe second was awful,
Galvin being touched up for 21, hits, with a
total of 42 bases. Dunlap was hurt in a
collision with Maul. Boston was shut out
by Gambert, the Pittsburger, who pitched
for Chicago. There were several exciting
County League games.
tSrECIAI. TELEORAH TO THE DISPATCH. 1
Piiii.adei.phia, July 20. The expo
nentsof pitchers' contests nnd the opposition
were both satisfied at the Philadelphia
Park this afternoon. The Phillies won two
games from Pittsburg, and both teams gare
an exhibition which furnished every variety
of baseball. It the first game Staley and
Buffinton pitched model ball, with the
honors slightly in favor of the latter. The
fielding was sharp and brilliant on the
local side, while but one of the visitors'
errors proved costly. Pittsburg took the
lead in the first inning, but Philadelphia
tied the score in the sixth and won it in the
tenth. Buffinton was bit tor six singles in
tho first two innings, and then he settled down,
the Fittsburgs securing but two singles and
two doubles during the balance of tbe game.
STALEY STARTED WELL.
For the Fittsburgs Staley began his work
well, but in tbe third two singles and a double
gave tbe Phillies two earned runs. In tbe sixth
Hall man was hit by a pitched ball, Beckley
made a poor throw to Kuehne and Mulvey's
single tied the score. After this both, pitchers
and the men behind them braced up and
played a game which was as exciting as it was
interesting. The bits were scattered until the
teeth, when Hall man's double and
Clements' single gave Philadelphia the
winning run, which served as a cue for 9,400
people to arise from their seats and yell and
cheer for fully three minutes. None of tbe
visitors got more than half-way near the plate
after the second inning, which was partly due
to Buffinton s effective work, but more directly
due to his brilliant support. Hallman, Myers
and Mulvey took part in several pretty plays
which prevented tbe visitors from scoring. In
the eighth inning Mulvey made a stop of Mil
ler's grounder, the like of which ,
' HAS NOT BEEN EXCELLED
this season, and in the following inning when
the Pittsburg men were last at bat and a run
meant defeat for Philadelphia, Hallman
made a line catch of a ball from Rowe's bat,
which be threw in time to catch Fields off first
base. The catch was a pretty one, but his
quick throw of the ball to Farrar is what cap
tivated the spectators, and he was loudly ap
plauded for the performance. The visitors
also fielded well, Dunlap. Fields, Maul and
Smith taking part in several extraordinary
plays. Becklej's one banded catch of
Thompson's line bit in the fourth created much
surprise and brought out prolonged applause.
In the sixth inning Clements hit a short fly into
right field, which both Dunlap and Maul start
ed for. Dunlap reached the ball first, about a
second before Maul got there, but both men
collided and fell down, Dunlap holding the
ball. Time was called and an examination of
bruises was made. Maul was slightly injured
and Dunlap was hurt internally so much that,
after making an attempt to finish the game, he
was forced to retire in favor of Smith, Rowe
taking the tatter's position at short.
THE BIG SLAUGHTER.
The second game was full of mirth and Jim
rule Galvin reluctantly furnished the fun for
the occasion. He possessed plenty of speed
and put all tbe curves in the baseball category
across tbe plate, but the Phillies had bad an in
troduction to the old man 48 hours before and
his very presence gave them courage with tbe
stick. They rapped him for 22 singles with a total
of 42 bases, and would have bit him more, but
their strength failed them. Thompson led with a
single, a double and two home runs and was
cloely followed by Wood, who hit for two
singles and as many four-baggers. Myers was
in good bitting humor, rapping the bail for no
less than three two-baggers, andMulvey rapped
out a single and a triple. Sandets, the local
club's star pitcher, was bit for two singles and
two doubles, but tbree of these four hits were
not secured nntil after the sixth inning.
HALLMAN'S BRILLIANT TVORK.
Hallman's work at short was again brilliant,
as was Smith's at second. Philadelphia Scored
five runs in the first inning on Wood's home
run bit, doubles by Myers and Thompson and
singles by Mulvey, Fogarty aud Farrar. Ir.
the third. Wood's single, Myers donble, Mnl
vey's triple and a base on balls netted three
runs. Four runs were scored by Philadelphia
in the fifth on singles by Hallman and Farrar
and home runs by Wood and Thompson. In
the eighth, Thompson's second four-bagger of
the game, Schrivers double, Fogarty's single
and Rowe's fumble yielded tbree more runs,
and two singles and a double gave them an
other in the ninth. Pittsburg scored its only
run in the sevonth on Maul's double, Miller's
single and Field's sacrifice. Scores:

Tbe following weekly table shows how the
League clubs stand in the race, ana also how
one club has fared against another. The race
continnes to be an exciting one, as the first
four clubs are very close together. Wow York

Boston for first place. Philadelphia is getting
very close to Cleveland. The latter is dropping
down rapidly. The Pittsburg club has been
the worst performer during the week, not
having won a game. Indianapolis is, therefore,

I SPECIAL TZLZOBAH TO TIIE piSPATCn.l
Atlantic City.-N. J., July 20. Probably no
man wno witnessed the Sullivan-Kilraln fight
knows more about the inner details' of the
great battle than Dr. J. A. Dougherty,
of Philadelphia. Dr. Dougherty was Jake
Kilraln's physician in the recent championship
battle with Sullivan, and seems soreiy disap
pointed that bis ravonte's condition on enter
ing tbe nbg was snehas to preclude the possi
bility of him winning tbe fight.
"was Kilrain in tbe best of condition when
he fought?" was asked the Doctor.
"I believed so up to the day before the
battle," he replied, "when I asked bim his
weight when not training for a fight. He
told me 230 pounds.' 'And what is your weight
nowr 'About 180 pounds. I believe.'
I told Mitchell such a loss in weight was en
tirely too great to induce strength and endu
rance. No man can lose one-third or one
fourth bis normal weight in a few days aud be
in the prime of physical condition."
"Might it not have been tbe case, doctor,
tbat Kllraln was suffering from the effects of
some complaint for which yon did not treat
bim or did not know off"
This question was nnanswered, saved by a
slight shake of the bead which had neither an
affirmative nor negative significance.
"Then how about tbe aspersions on Kilraln's
moral character! Is there anything to bear
out the sensational stories telegraphed all over
tbe country!" t
There is certainly not the slightest ground
for any such suspicion."

SPORTS IN ENGLAND.
The Jockev Club In Earnest Great Worst
of the American Cricketer.
IBT CABLZ TO TOI DISPATCn.J ;
Losdoit, July 2a iCopyright. The Jockey
Club Is evidently determined to purify the
turf if it can be done, no matter how large may
be tbe doses of correction administered. Tbo
famous jockeys. Charles Wood and Henry
Wansey, have been warned off Newmarket
Heath and all other race courses, a warning
which means something, as the courts have de
cided tbat the Jockey Club has the right to
remove anyone it has warned by force. Sher
rard, one of the greatest English trainers, has
had his license to train horses withdrawn, while
Sir George Chetwynd. though not warned off,
has practically been fined several thousand
pounds by being compelled to pay costs, and
declared nnwortby to take part in horse racing.
Chetwynd is practically driven forever from
the tnrf, altbough not actually prevented from,
running horses in races. This is a very'senous
thing, as he is not rich, and lived on bis ability
to mako his stable a profitable concern. The
amount of money made in racing may be gath
ered from the case of tbe Dnke of Portland,
that wonderfully lucky individual whoss
4-year-old Aveshire easily won the Kcllpsa
stakes of 10,000 at Sandown Park this week,
beating Seabreeze and Eldorado. Portland
has thus the best 4-year-old In training, and bis
winnings in stakes last season, aud so far this,
amount to 80,000.
The wonderfully good play shown by tho
Pbiladelpnla cricketing team has been a sur
prise to all cricketers in England. Tbey still
require good bowling practice, but Englishmen
declare tbat if this is a fair sample, a few sea
sons more should see Philadelphia put a team
in the field able to hold its own. at least against
the best team the gentlemen of England can

training for tbe international race, going out

things easy, and although be goes for a short
spin each day, does nothing a racing speed,
and declares tbat be will not begin real work
until fully accli matized.
