Cleveland's Outplayed at All Points
in a Good Game.
' A Kew Local Baseball League Organized
With Six Clnbs.
Once more victory fell to the share of the
1 unfortunate ball team known as the Pitts
burps yesterday. Cleveland was beaten 5
to 4. Gaivin pitched. Manager Phillips
is skirmishing for more players. A new
local baseball league, taking in six suburban
clubs, was organized in the city yesterday.
Philadelphia defeated New York for the
third successive time.
Cleveland, July 24. Cleveland bad
the came won from Pittsburg up to the
ninth inning this afternoon.when the "tough
luck" that has existed for miserable Pitts
burg for many weeks past suddenly trans
ferred itself to the erstwhile Babies and
dragged them down to unexpected defeat.
It was a hard game to lose, and when the
end came neither audience nor the players
could realize for a moment that vic
tor had been snatched from their hands at
the very goal. Bakely has himself to thank
in a large measure for the outcome of the
game. At several critical periods he was
extremely careless.and this very carelessness
cost not less than four runs, as will be seen
further on. "Wes Curiy gave satisfaction to
everyone, and hi blunder in the ninth of
miscalling a ball drew down upon him the ana
themas of the crow d, which numbered about
l.SOO. Outside of Tebeau, who had an off day,
the Clevelands put up a fine fielding frame.
Their batting was also above the average, but
the nits did not always come at the right time.
Deacon White appeared at third base for the
visitors and put up a first-class article of ball.
He was vlgorouslj applinded upon his first
appearance at the bat, but Bakely kept the ball
down too low for him to size it up to any ex
tent. Cleveland started off quite briskly in the
first inning. Jimmy Gaivin couldn't get the
first four balls over the plate and Strieker
ambled to first base. A wild pitch advanced him
to second and a sacrifice by McAleer and a hit
by Gilks brought him home. Twitchell fol
lowed with a single, and it looked as though
the Babies were going to make things lively
lor the aged "Jeems. Fortunately fo'r him
the next ball hit was whero White could lay
lits hands on it and a neat double play ensued,
Gtlks being forced out at third and Faatz
retired at first. In the thin" inning Strieker
led off with a base hit, which Kuehne stopped,
but threw wildly to first, allowing Cub to reach
second base. McAleer drove him home with a
cracking single to left. Gilks sent the ball
between second and first, but unfortunately
as be dashed down the line, and be was de
clared out. Gilks was given a safe hit, but it
availed bim little, for he was speedily thrown
out at second. In the fourth, Faatz started
the ball rolling with a sing e, but he and Rad
ford fell victims to another double play, this
time executed by Kuehne, Smith and Beckley.
Simmer distinguished himself in the fifth by
lining the ball nearly to the left field fence a
bit that was easily good for three bases.
Strieker's baser to left scored him, the former
going to second on White's wild throw Al
though McAleer sacrificed again, Strieker
couldn't get home, for Miller, by quick foot
work and good judgment, nailed Gilks' high
foul fly, and thus retired the side. Twitchell
smashed the ball far into left field for two
bases, and Faatz followed with a sacrifice, but
no additional hits were forthcoming and Larry
tarried on third. The seventh and eighth in
nings were uneventful so far s Cleveland was
concerned. One, two, three crder was on the
prograiume,but in the ninth the Babies started
in to clinch what they supposel was already a
sure thing.
Faatz hit a liner directly at Smith, and fat
tened up that player's fielding average. Rad
ford's ugly bounding grounder got away from
Smith, Tebeau hit into deep short, and al
though Kuehne got the balk he went into a
trance and allowed Radford to make second.
Ziminer flew out to Fields, but Bakely, who has
been batting in good form of late, found the
ball for a single, scoring Radford. With two
men on bases there was an excellent opening
for a two-bagger, home run or something on
that order, but Strieker couldn't fix -it that
way, and a bard-bit ball to Smith forced Bakely
out at second, and settled Cleveland's chances
fpr adding to her score. Subsequent proceed
ings showed that an extra run or two would not
bare come In amiss The proverbial Pittsburg
luck hovered over the visitors for two or tbreo
innings. In the third, with but one band out,
Hanlon and Beckly hit safely, while Tebeau
resented Miller with a life at first bv passing
is grounder. It looked ominous for Cleveland,
but at this juncture Maul batted the ball di
rectly at Bakely, who threw Ilanlnu out at the
plate. Zimmer completed a lightning doublo
play by passing the ball to Faatz in time to
catch MauL
In the fourth Fields made a two-base hit,
Kuehne sacrificed and Smith was civen a base
on balls, but still Pittsburg conldn't score.
The next inning, however, broke the ice. Han
Ion made a lucky single to left, was advanced a
base by Miller's safe bit, aud scored on sacri
fices by Beckley and MauL The next two
innings netted them nothing. In the eighth
Colonel Bakely donated one large run to tlio
visitors. It did not look very big at the time,
bnt a few minutes later it got in its work on
the home team with fatal effect. It was too
bad for Manl and White had just ben doubled
up, after the former had hit safely pastTcbcau.
Fields, found a ball to his liking and bit it clean
to tbe fence. While he lingered on third
Bakely pitched the ball abont a foot over Zim
mcr's bead and permitted him to complete tbo
circuit. Kuehne struck out a moment later so
the run was a pure gift. When Pittsbnrg came
to the bat in the ninth Inning the sore was
four to two against them, and few expected
that they would even tie It, let alone make
enough to win. But baseball is
as was evidenced bv the course of events.
Gaivin had two strikes called on him, bnt hit
tbe third one somewhere out in the field. He
didn't know where it went, but kept on run
ning and was very much surprised to find when
be arrived there that he bad made a two-base
bit. Hanlon bit over the pltcber's.bead, and,
although Gilks made a fine stop of it, be did
not have time to throw the runner out at first
base. It was a. close decision, however, and
many thought the man out. Miller then came
to the bat. After several balls had been called
and one or two funis batted around tbe grounds,
the little catcher swung at the ball and missed.
"One striker called Curry. A towl arose from
the audience, "Three strikes." Faatz came in
to argue the point. Curry showed blm his in
dicator and declared that lie was right, and as
Bakely'did not dispute the point, it was yielded.
Miller immediately thereafter sacrificed, scor
ing Gaivin. Beckley ilrore the ball into left
field, and tblngsjookcd squally for Clereland.
Maul was the next man at bat, and as be hit
down toward Gilks the audience breathed more
freely, for it looked liko a sure out. Gilks
thongbt so himself, and had his bands all ready
for tl-e ball, when It took sudden bound and
went orer bis bead far Into center field. Before
It could be returned both Hanlon and Beckley
bad scored, and the g-imo was lost. Tbe audi
ence could hardly realise it, and Zimmer stood
on the plate as if la a dream. There was a cry
of "robber" as Curry walked toward the dress
Ht room. 'The crowd, who old not understand
the situation, bettered that Cleveland
hit n rnhtoori nf till tr.mt ThetfUthwa
that Curry had called the first ball pitched a
I ball, and on the second ball, a high and wide
one, be ca'lod "two strikes" Dy mistake insicaa
of two balls. 1 ben caino the Interim, and when
Miller struct at a good ball and Curry declared
It one strike there was a kick, the crowd simply
remembeilng having beard two strikes called
before. Carry was mixed up, but Clereland
lost nothing by It. Score:

manager Phillips After More Toons' Blood
Speer May Sljrn To-Morrow.
Manager Phillips will start out on another
hunt for players to-day, bis territory being
Ohio. He will not be home until to-morrow,
when he and President Nimlck will have a con
ference with Speer, tbe promising local
catcher. Speer met Mr. Nimlck yesterday
afternoon, and after an exchange of opinions
it was agreed to make no definite arrangements
until to-morrow morning, when Manager
Phillips will bo home.
As stated in yesterday's DISPATCH, the club
officials are still on the lookout for more new
players, and it is surmised that Manager Phil
lips' mission to-day is to try and secure a
pitcher. Every effort is to be made to get one
or two good plthers, and tbe club is prepared
to keep on making experiments until a good
man is signed. Speaking on the subject last
evening. President Nimlck said:
"W-are not downhearted by any means,
although luck has been against us. We are
prepared to put up the cash for good men, but
as to who we are after I'm not prepared to say.
I would have liked to have signed Glllilaud,
but Philadelphia has secured him. However, I
am confident that we have gotten a good
Sltcber In Sowders. Boston did not sell bim
ccause ho was no cood. He was dissatisfied,
and the club took a big price for blm. I can
assure tbe public that I paid a big sum for
"Are you going to release any pitcbersT"
"Well. I would rather not make a statement
on that question. At any rate. I may say that
the directors will settle that matter."
It is'definltely understood that one or two
pitchers or the team, and one of them an old
one, will be dispensed with at the end of the
season. When Interrogated definitely on the
matter, Mr. Nimlck merely said that tbe di
rectors would settle tbe question.
Sowders will pitch to-day and Manager
Phillips writes ttfat he is in first-class condition.
The true cause or his dissatisfaction with Bos
ton was learned yesterday. When Boston got
Sowaers from Si Paul they gave him a salary
of $2,000 and a bonus of $800. For this season.
however, they would only give blm $2,000;
claiming that that was his salary last year and
that the $800 was a present. He objected and
was classified. He then became highly dissat
isfied and has incessantly been wanting bis
release. After Mr. Nimlck offered something
over $2,000 for his release Boston parted with
To-Day's Home flame.
The local club will return home to-day and
tackle the Clevelands at Recreation Park.
Sowders and Miller will be the home battery
and probably Gruber and Snyder will represent
the visitors. Rowe will likely be absent on ac
count of his wife's illness, and White will be at
third with Kuehne short and Smith second.

I'lTTSBURO, Pa., July 24, 1889.
To the Sporting Editor of tbe Dispatch:
I notice in your paper this morning that we
(the Scottdale Baseball Club) refused to make a
match with McKecsport as per agreement. Mana-

Schnefer and Ives In Town They Issno Big
Jacob Scbacfcr, the champion billiard player
of America, and Frank Ives, another famous
player, arrived in the city last evening from
the West en route to the East The "Wizard"
was looking well, and talked freely about bil
liard affairs. He said:
"We are traveling East to fill a few engage
ments at Boston, Saratoga, Philadelphia and
other places. However, my principal object is
to try and get on a match with Slosson for
5,000 a side. I am anxious to play Mr. Slosson,
and I wish bim to come to time and not talk so
Mr. Ives, during a conversation, said: "The
stories to the effect that Schaefer is drinking
are all false. He Is drinking no more now than
he ever did. but I can assure you that he Is a
better billiard player now than ever. When
we arrive in New York Schaefer will challenge
Slosson and I will challenge Carter or any other
man in the world, bar Schaefer and Slosson. I
will force Carter to play me or give up the
medal he holds."
Speaking of Carter's defeat of VIgnaux, Ives
said: "I attach little importance to it. A game
of 100 points at billiards 13 worth nothing.
Carter cannot beat Vignaux and he knows It.
Why, tbe Frenchman is conceding him 20 per
cent start in tbeir long games and' beating blm
at that. I presume Carter cabled the news of
his alleged victory to this country himself. If
Schaefer and myself cannot get single matches
we will play any two men in the world for a big

the creek rose so rapidly that it overflowed

If the dam should break and the water be

America and Was nnrd to Hold.
New York, July 24. This dispatch
reached police headquarters to-night :
Lima, July 24,
Inspector Byrnes, Kew York:
Prisoner escaped at Iquique Friday. Re
arrest impossible. Instruct U. S. Minister at
Lima. Reillt.
The prisoner is Wm. A- Buohneli, alias
Gerald F. Hansom, the absconding book
keeper 6r Butler, Stillman & Hubbard, who
was arrested at Santiago, Chili, last Sep
tember, by Detective Eeilly, of this city,
nnd who was on his way back here in Beilly's
custody.- Ten years ago he hypothecated
securities valued at $35,000 belonging to the
above-named law firm and fled. Then
under the name of Hansom he was ap
pointed agent of the United States West
Coast Telephone Company in Santiago,
where he moved in the best society. In 1887
he embezzled $18,000, but he was so popular
there that no jury would convict him. It
was then found that Bushnell and Hansom
were the same person, and Inspector Byrnes
had him arrested on the first charge. It was
with great difficulty he was extradited.
rho Commission Discovers That at Least
the Law's Spirit Una Suffered.
Washington', July 24 Civil Service
Commissioner Boosevelt said to-day that
charges have been brought against both the
Pension Office and the Second Auditor's
Office that men have been discharged be
cause they were Democrats. He was not
prepared to say that this was a violation of
the law, but individually he was firmly of
the opinion that it was in violation of the
spirit of the law. He thought that no one,
unless he happened to be an active partisan
should be dismissed from the public service.
He said that tbe commission was going to
look the matter up, not only as relating to
the present but to the past.
In speaking of the matter further, Mr.
Boosevelt said that in the Baltimore post
office it was charged that there had been a
clean sweep nnd out of the 350 men em
ployed there were nowonly 11 Bepublicans.
He thought that this was wrong and ought
to be stopped.

Green Goods Swindlers.
New York, July 24. Complaints have
been coming in from all parts of the coun
try to the New York postoffice of a green
goods gang which appeared to be doing a
rushing trade. Comstock and an agent
foxed an old man to 17 Moore street, but
by the time the Captain and Detective
Oatcs arrived on the spot the man
had escaped. Captain McLaughlin searched
the room" for proof against the men. A
small safe stood in one corner which he
easily forced open from the top. He found
in it $4,644 in good money, done up in
packages, from $10 bills down. Captain
McLaughlin sent the money up to the
property clerk at police headquarters. If
the men haven't the nerve to claim it, it
will help swell the police pension fund.
But they will probably claim it tHrough a

Minneapolis Insist That It Is BiscerThan
- Sr. PnnT.
That the jealousy between St. Paul and
Minneapolis, so often humorously alluded
to by the press of this country, is based on
actual fact, is evidenced by the following
telegram, which explains itself:
Minneapolis, July 21, 18S9.
To The Pittsbnrg Dispatch:
As sensational telegrams have been sent to
the leading papers of the country by an ir
responsible St. Paul correspondent concerning
the directories for 1889 for Minneapolis and St.
Paul, I desire to ask these same papers which
have published the falsehood from St. Paul to
publish tbe truth from Minneapolis, which 1
send prepaid.
Tbe directory of St. Pan! was issned on the
I5:h inst. It contained 71.000 names, an in
crease of over 4,000 over 1SS3- Tho Minneapo
lis directory was Issued to-night and contains
80,000 names, an increase of nearly 5,600 over
1888. According to the multiple used during
tbe State census of 1885, St. Paul has 185.000
population, ily the same multiple Minneapolis
contains 232,000 people, showing Minne
apolis to be in tbe lead by 45,000
peop.e. This directory estimate is confirmed
by other statistics. Minneapolis cast 38.U00
votes for President in November, 18SS, while
St. Paul cast but 26,000. Minneapolis has 19,000
school children enrolled upon her bonks,
while St Paul has but 15.000
enrolled. The taxible valuation of Minne
apolis exceeds S13i000,000. while St- Paul's
scarcely reaches 105,000.000. The twin cities
of the Northwest undoubtedly have 430.000
population, bnt Minneapolis leads St. Paul by
more than 40,000. ALDEX J. Kleteen,

A Beport That tbo Railroads Will Caplare
. the Interstate Commission.
Chicago, July 24. A local paper says:
A report is current that the trnnk lines are
making strong efforts to secure the services
of Chairman Cooley.of the Inter-State Com
mission, as Commissioner of Trunk Lines'
Association in place of Albert Fink, whose
resignation was accepted about a
month ago. It is believed that he is consid
ering the advisability of accepting the
$25,000 position. Be is at present on a trip
to the Pacific const. .Should Judge Cooley
decide to acfcept.'some people will be curious
to know how he will harmonize such action
with his previously expressed opinion that
it was the height of impropriety tor a man
holding a place on the Inter-State Com
merce Commission to accept any position
from the railroads. Should they succeed in
inducing him to fake the position, however,
they will have succeeded in capturing two
of the brightest and ablest men on the Inter
State Commission the Judge himself and
A. F. Walker, now at the head of the
famous "Gentlemen's" Association.
It is Capitalized at $6,000,000, to Give
PrcOtK to BInnnfnctnrers.
Chicago, July 24. The atrawhoard
makers of the country have united in one
mammoth company or trust. Mr. E. E.
Newcomb, of Quincy, 111., acknowledges
its existence, and states that its corporative
name is "The American Strawboard Com
pany." The mills embraced in the com
bination are loctted from Delaware, in the
East, to Illinois and Wisconsin, in the
West- It also takes in the largest dealers
In strawboard in New York, Boston, Phila
delphia, Cincinnati and Chicago, who prac
tically control the trade.
The capital stock of tho company is
$6,000,000. Its purchases include the plants
of 26 mills, and all personal property
appertaining thereto. "We intend,"" Mr.
Kewcomb said, "to so conduct the business
that the production shall not exceed the
demand, and we shall be satisfied with a
fair profit."
Tho Stolen Property Dears Ibe Name of B.
F. Bailor as n Jolte.
Hingham, Mass., July 24. Part of the
silver which was stolen from the house of
ex-Governor Long during" the recent rob
bery in this town has been returned. Sat
urday a package arrived by mail containing
three spoons one large one and two small
ones. The package was postmarked "Bos
ton," and the address was in print instead
of writing. In one corner and on the out
side of the package was the name "B. F.
Mr. Long regards the returning of the
spoons partly as a joke anil partly as a
kindness, as'it was stated in the Boston
papers at the time the theft was committed
that the spoons were valued by Mr. Long,
as the two small ones belonged to his
mother and the large one to his wife. The
name of "B. F. Butler" on the package is
also regarded as a joke.

Queer Gronnd on Which nn Indiana Blam
Asked a Part ol the Surplus.
Washington, Julr24. Assistant Sec-
retary Bussey has rendered a decision in the
oase of John Seifert, late of Company A,
Forty-ninth Indiana Volunteers, who
moved for a reconsideration of a former de
cision rejecting his claim to an invalid pen
sion. The testimony upon which the As
sistant Secretary appears to rely, concern
iogHbe cause and circumstances attending
the incurrence of the disability are substan-
tially as follows:
The captain of claimant's company and three
others had rented for The night the back room
of a saloon, and were engaged in playing cards
when three citizens of the town entered and
be;an playing on a banjo and one or two other
Instruments. This disturbed the play and the
cintain.speaking to his comrades,arnong whom
was the claimant, who had just entered, said:
"Boys, let's put them out." At that all arose
and the intruuers moved toward the door, all
except one man named Bishop, who lingered.
The claimant put his hand on Bishop's shoul
der and then Bishop mored out. As he passed,
claimant turned his back, and as he did so
Blshopshot In in inflicting two wounds, on ac
count of which he claims a pension. The claim
ant in his testimony avers that he was in tho
room in obedience to his captain's orders, and
that the part he took in ejecting the intruders
was also in obedience to his commands.
The Assistant Secretary decides that the
captain's order was not within the line of
duty, was an order to commit a breach cf
peace, and the claimant was not justified in
obeying it any more than he would have
been justified in doing any other unlawful
act. His being in the saloon was a viola
tion of rules of discipline. The application
is denied.
