fA Talk About English and American Ama
MOAT) tfflDS FOE THE PH1LADELPH1AS
The weet has not passid by without a few
surprises in the basetftjl world; surprises
that have interested everybody who at all
has a liking for the national game. Last
week who would have thought that New
ork and Cleveland would have taken such
a tumble, and who would have surmised
that the local players would have braced up
and almost scored an entire week's victories?
Pew, indeed, would have ventured opinions
of this kind. Cut such are the uncertainties
of baseball. However, the most pleasinj
surprise of the lot is the way in which the
home team has performed this week. The home
players have completely outplayed the Cleve
landers, who so far have been the sensation
of the season. On paper a performance of
this kind looks great, but in reality it is not as
great as It looks. In justice to everybody con
cerned the Clevelands are far below many clubs
In the League, that is, assuming every team to
be at Its best. The Clevelands. however, have
1u..n ivmirVoltlv frA frnTi, illfflrilltiM- aprf-
f dents, etc, while other teams that they have
faced have been buried in misfortunes. When
the Pittsburg club is at its best nobody who
; knows anything about baseball will contend
that it is not a superior club to that of Cleve
land. I take this for granted. It is. therefore.
K fair and logical argue that Cleveland is not
liy any means near the highest standard 01
i League quality, These remarks are not made
tvnth any disparagement to the plucky fellows
from Cleveland; not at all. Tbey are to be
admired for the excellent stand they have
J made so far, and deserve every encouragement.
Bnt one has a right for an opinion regarding
tneir puenomenai success in tne way ui ticw
ries against first-class clubs. Manager Loftns,
who, by the way. Is a very able man and a
genial citizen, remarked to me the other day
that his team would defeat Philadelphia. -I
admire the pluck and confidence of the Cleve
land manager, but I fear that his prediction is
founded more on enthusiasm than sound judg
ment. However, baseball is a very strange
Rending (he Riot Ac'.
A few days ago it was stated exclusively in
this paper that Manager Phillips had read the
riot act to the players while at Cleveland. He
Ud this and with great effect. He stated In no
uncertain tone that the severest penalties
would be imposed on all player violatirg in
any shape or form the rules of discipline laid
(down by the club. Ho also pointed oat that
poor players would be noted most rigidly. The
lecture, like the one given a few weeks ago, has
evidently had its effect. The team has played
better and there is a general de
sire to work for the good of the
team. Manager Phillips said to me a few days
ago: "We have one or two men whose only
ambition is to make a hit. If tbey don't do
that they nearly chew their fingers off. They
don't seem to care about any other features of
the game." He went on to say that this record
idea must be stopped, and every well wisher of
the team will be clad to know of It. That a
jjmbre rigid discipline Is needed there is no
doubt, and I don't say this without reason.
Jlere is an extract from a letter tbat round its
way to this, office a few days ago: "A morning
or two ago about 3 o'clock a few friends and
myself were surprised to visit a certain place
and find a prominent member of the Pittsburg
ball club rolling on the floor drunk and singing
in lusty but rather incoherent tones: 'We've
all been there before, many a time." As
I looked at the player I thought it would
be weeks before he would be in condition to
tlav acain." I have the name of the writer of
j" this letter, ana we can rest assured that his
&word is absolutely reliable. In view of snch
facts let not the public ever again complain of
f the imposition of fines for questionable con
Lduct,or In anyway sympathize with the vio
lators of the rules. Bad playing creates a gen
es! howL and we cannot expect good playing
Elf the players do not keep themselves in good
pnysicai condition, ii ever a team oi Dan play
ers had good inducements to do well tbey are
in the PittsDnrg club. So team of men are
better paid; no team is more kindly dealt with
by their patrons and the press, and surely grati
tude ought to prompt good work in return.
American nnd English Rowing.
It has often looked very singular to me dur
ing recent years that our British consins are bo
much superior to us in amateur rowing and so
.very far behind in a professional way. There
'is no comparison at all between the profes
sional scullers of this country and 'those of
'England, and why it is that the English can
always beat us when it comes to a lot of ama-
eurs is a question that seems dimcnlt to
folve. Probably there are more amateur
scullers in England than here, and that would
mean a larger stock to select from. In my way
of thinking it looks like a certainty that when
amateur sculling in America becomes an older
branch of sport than it is the Americans will
be ahead in that sport as they are in almost all
other branches. It is also a fact that in very
many instances, indeed, as soon as an amateur
becomes a good sculler, he joins the
professional ranks in this country. O'Con
nor, and many others are examples;
this to a great extent accounts for the moderate
standard of our amateur scullers. Of course
this is a pity, because in my estimation there
ought to be just as much national pride in
amateur rowing as in 'professional. It is rare
in England that a good amateur becomes pro
fessional, ana mis i.eens tne tuocit oi amateurs
always big and the quality good.
English Opinion of Paottn.
Sneaking of amateur rowing reminds me of
Psbtta. His trip to England to uphold the
ars and stripes has been disappointing to
nanyofna. He did not come out anabsolnte
rrtc-ur, Miuvuu iuauj jcuMic uceuieu uizu a
Sure winner. However, be was not thoroughly
tested, because during his stay in England he
fwas a sick man. Regarding this f eatnre, and
.also bis style, I qnote the following interesting
Notice from the London Referee:
Psotta, the Yankee scnller, was. I am assured,
!not really clear or his liver trouble. Thatlsapolnt

Silgh, like Beach's used to be. but in get-up, ac
tion with his slide, and big wrench wlt.1 the aeulis

of lUnlon when striking fast. The great -Ned had
two quite distinct methods for boat pulling: one
was a long blow stroke in three distinct lugs; the
iHhcr shorter, and polled right through in
swe swish from the moment or .first striking
ibe. water. Psotta shapes like Hanlon in the
fast stroke, and pulls like him too. He pleased
Sportsmen In nls beat with Small, who bv the
way, had been rowed to a standstill earlier In the
bay In the W yfolds. The Chester man ran into a
prelecting booby's boat. Thereupon Mr.Psotta
topped, and walled for the other to begin again,
'ir could beat the KngUshwan as he pleased, and
Jractiollr ran no risk in pulling up. Still, u was

A Boom la Trotting.
atever those ardent and extreme ad-
rs of running races may say about the gen
, acceptance of their sport in all the leading
des in America, the fact remains that trotting
timbre popular to-day in this country than it
ftrerwas. The Grand Circuit opens on Tnes-
Uy at Cleveland, and judging from the success
t the Detroit meeting during the past week,
telnay expect a livelier circuit than there has
rrerfceen. There certainly is more money now
vetted in trotting and pacing tnan nas Deen
i at any tune previous curing me niswry
of the country. The extraordinary prices that
have been paid for trotters recently assures us
that the wealthy classes of the country are be
coming more and more directly identified with
trotting and pacing. Wealth Is a great mag
net, and depend upon it -that "as long as such
enormous sums continue to be invested in the
sport so long sill It remain among
the foremost sports in the land.
It is not necessary here to discuss the respect
ive merits of trottingand running. We all bavo
onr preferences, but I think there are few
sporting men who will fail to admire trotting
races such as will take place in the Grand Cir
cuit. Ir the weather is favorable the circuit's
success seems assured. However, there is one
thing that must be killed at all hazards; that is
crookedness. The free-for-all trot at Detroit
indicates that there is indeed a great danger of
dishonesty and fraud creeping into the princi
pal races. The performance of Qene Smith on
Wednesday against Kosaline.Wilkes was of the
most suspicious character, and the judges did
well to declare all bets off on one of the heats.
Uut there ought to be the most stringent pen
alties imposed for crookedness. There has for
years been to a great extent a laxity in dealing
with prominent horsemen who have been
charged with crooked work on the trotting
track. There has always been a dread that the
Ios of their patronage would mar the success
of the respective meetings. That can no longer,
however, be an excuse, as there are plenty of
good horses and honest men in the country to
day. Boihnnthe trotting and running tracks
the example of the English Jockey Club ought
to be followed, and all dishonest men, of what
ever class, ruled off.
Onr Crlcketcra Abroad.
last week I had a few words of praise to say
regarding the American cricketers now in En
gland. J have a few more to say this week,
although they suffered a sweeping defeat by
the M. C. C. gentlemen. That defeat, in my
estimation, showed that they are cricketers.
They faced some of the best Amateurs in En
gland and bad to encounter styles of bowling
LA-L..L -. . .. . 1 . ! .I.t.
wnicu tuey nau not ueen accuatumeu w iu tuia
country, yet they scored 235 in an inning. This
is certainly good work for, comparatively
speaking, tyros to perform in the land of
cricket. The bowling did them against the M.
C. C. lot; I mean it made their defeat such an
apparent hollow one. However, it is not be ex
pected tbat they would have come near any
thing like winning, even bad tney mastered the
bowling more than tbey did, A team headed
with such batsmeu as AV. G. Grace is not
likely to be outbatted bv the Philadelphia gen
tlemen. However, the Philadelphia delegation
needs all the credit possible. They have dem
onstrated the fact that we have cricket
players In this country, and the
probability is that our representatives
will win more matches than they will lose. I
don't by any means anticipate the time when
America will bo ahead of the Britishers in
cricket playing. The latter will certainly for
generations to come be the national game of
England, no matter how many baseball teams
visit tbat country. At this juncture I am re
minded of all the enthusiastic talk about how
the visit of the Spalding ball teams to England
was going to popularize our national game
there and force cricket into the background.
At the time of this talk I pointed ont the ab
surdity of any such predictions or anticipa
tions, and I think that everybody interested in
the matter will now think that I was right.
Among the Pugilists.
Now that the leading lights in the pugilistic
world have adjourned from the arena for a
while and put down their hands,orfists,mauleys
or anything tbey may be called, talking has be
come the order of the day. Of course, after a
man has either battered and bruised another
into a helpless man, or been the victim himse'f,
it is his prerogative to talk, and we may or may
not listen to him. Sullivan now wears the
wreath of glory, whatever it may be worth, and
when he opens his mouth on exalted position,
it may be that no dog need bark. John
L. undoubtedly occupies a very enviable
position now in the pugilistic world; a
position tbat 12 months ago not one of his
admirers ever thought he would occupy. He
Is now the acknowledged champion pugilist of
the world and has received the 120,000 in stakes
and the diamond belt. He may now be safely
termed a capitalist, and were he as shrewd as
some pugilists I have known, he would invest
in a good business and retire on his laurels
from the prize ring. He has a perfect right to
do this and there certainly would be no cow
ardice in doing it. Sullivan, like every other
man, cannot always be a prize tighter, and it is
decidedly within bis right to abandon the ring
at any stage he thinks best for himself. The
path of a prize fighter is an uncertain one, and
the hero of to-day may be tho vanquished to
morrow. Men as great as Sullivan have discov
ered this ere now. However, the champion, as
we all know, lacks the stability of mind to
definitely follow out any line of policy.
His mind is not a strong one, as
evidenced in the way he received
the diamond belt. Probably no child would
talk more unreasonably and foolishly than did
Sullivan when presented with the emblem of
the championship. His statements to the effect
tbathewou'd take tho" dog -collar" and
distribute its diamonds among his friends and
utilize the balance of the belt in some ridic
ulous way, ere at least the essence of ingrati
tude. Sullivan was not by any means com
pelled to take the belt: bnt its existence is the
re-establishment of a custom that used to be
one of the finest features of the old-time prize
ring. The belt is an excellent one, and I be
lieve was first presented to the pugilistic world
with the most honest intentions. Of course
the donor expected some advertisement to ac
crue from it, bnt when a man spends 11,500 or
2,000 be deserves a little notoriety gratis. It is
a pity that Sullivan did not receive the cham
pionship emblem with good grace. Had be
done so he might have convinced many
people that he was more of a gentleman than
he really is. The latest from John L.'s victim,
John Joseph Kilrain, better known as Kilrain,
is that he has been out on a "howling spree-"
Mr. Kilrain and little Murphy were simply
emptying hackloads of red paint all over Bal
timore a few nights ago. The defeated
pugilist was evidently enjoying a superfluity of
wealth, as he was scattering current coin of the
realm right and left on Baltimore's streets.
Memories of defeat were either not thought of
or they were present so potently as to cause
the vanquished hero to despise the world and
everything In it, except a howling" back
ride. The escapade was ended by Kilrain being
locked in a room of a hotel and Murphy being
escorted to the police station by two officers.
Surely the prominent pugilists of to-day are
bright and particular stars when it comes down
to social enjoyment. Pbinqlk.

THE PHILLIES STEP UP A NOTCH.
CMcago Wins Two Games Prom the Hmsiers Other
The home ball team once more defeated
the Clevelands yesterday in a very lively
game. O'Brien was knocked out of the box.
Philadelphia won aud stepped up to third
place, Cleveland dropping to fourth. Chi
cago and Indianapolis played two games the
Chicagos winning both oi them.
For the filth time this week the local
baseball talent showed the Cleveland dele
gation where they are wrong yesterday.
The League youngsters are doubtless con
vinced by this time that there are easier
marks than the Pittshurgers when they are
out to do business. "When mind and muscle
are all right with the home representatives
Tom Loft us ind his active little chaps have no
business tackling the people who have laid
them low almost every day this week.
Yesterday's game was another illustration as
to the comparative merits of the two teams.
The local sluggers were not satisfied with win
ning the game, but they actually knocked
O'Brien out of the box. Nobody else has done
tbat this year, and Mr. O'Brien would, no
doubt, not take kindly to the proceeding. A
dose, however, awaits all baseball twirl era.
and that dose is surejto- come sooner or later.
O'Brien has been a faithful and good pitcher,
and he'll puzzle many people yet before the
season is over.
HE "WAS FEARFULLY TVII.D
yesterday, however, and bis wildness was al
most as costly as the thumping he received.
Be was replaced by Bakely in the sixth inning
and the change toned matters down consid
erably. Only two hits were made off Bakely,
but he too was wild.
But just when the home team got through
their hitting old Galvin woke up and kept the
other fellows guessing. For the first four or
five innings it looked as if the babies were go
ing to tronnce the old sport out of the box, and
there were loud calls for Bonders. Acting
Captain Hanlon, however, retained the old
man abd the latter not only settled down bnt
he made a most timely hit when the bases were
full and two men out. Jimmy's stock went up
rapidly after that exciting event. He wag ex
ceedingly well supported by everybody, and if
he had not the jig might have been up. Han
lon fielded splendidly, as did Bowe and White.
In short, the entire nine did welL
There were about 2,000 people present and
they were exceedingly noisy. The bleaching
board occupants were ready for a scrap with
Captain Jay at any stage. The Cleveland cap
tain did once or twice make an unreasonable
kick to McQuaid about the latter's decisions.
The crowd yelled in opposition to Jay, and
that long man wholsfastearnlnganunenviable
reputation on the ball field, subsided. For
three innings the game was such that
CAUSED INTENSE EXCITEMENT.
The home players were pounding O'Brien and
the visitors were walloping Jimmy. Matters
were such that at the end of tho third inning
the score was tied and remained so until the
fifth inning, when tho home players left the
youngsters far behind.
The home team opened out the game In an
extremely encouraging way. After Hanlon
was out Carroll got his base on balls and
Beckley hit to left for a base. While Miller
was at bat Carroll stole third and 'Beckley
reached second. Miller's single to right
brought them both home. Miller stole second
and got to third on Howe's sacrifice. Maul's
single to left brought Miller home and White
retired the side. After two men were out in
the second Inning Hanlon hit a single to left
and stole second. Carroll got bis base on balls
and then big Jake Beckley thumped the ball
to extreme center field for three bases, bring
ing In two runs.
In the fifth Miller led off and he and Bowe
each got to first. on balls. Maul flew out to
McAleer and White knocked out a short single
to right, filling the bases. Smith sent a
grounder to Strieker and he easily threwMiller
out at the plate.
GAXVIN'S TIMELY HIT.
There were still three men on bases when old
Galvin trudged to the plate. Jeems settled
down to serious work and banged the ball into
left field, bringing in Rowe and White amid
the wildest shouts. Hanlon followed up with
a corking single to middle, and Smith scored.
Gal rin going to second. Carroll kept matters
lively by cracking out another single to left,
which, along with a tumble by Twitchell en
abled Galvin to score. Tnitcbelf made a splen
did catch of Beckley's fly, retiring the side.
In the last inning Bakely sent both Bowe and
Maul to base on balls, and White's hit to mid
dle sent Bowe home and Maul reached third
on a fumble for McAleer. Smith's sacrifice
sent Maul across the plate.
The visitors made one run in the first inning
on McAleer's scratch single and Twitcbell's
lucky double to left. Two more runs were
made in the second. Badford got first on balls
andTebeau made a good single to left. Z. tu
rner flew out and O'Brien's double sent Bad
ford home and Tebeau reached third. Tebeau
scored on Strieker's sacrifice bit. In the third
inning the visit ens tied the score, and matters
began to look blue, indeed. McKean opened
out with a double to middle and Twitchell flew
out to Hanlon. Faatz'a sacrifice sent McKean
to third, and Badford got bis base on balls. He
started to steal second and Miller threw the
ball into middle field and McKean scored. Te
beau then enabled Badtord to reach home by a
double to center. The visitors scored no more.
McQuaid umpired well. Following is the

SIcKeesports and McKeesport Grnya Play
ISPXCTAI. TXXXOBAU TO TUX DIBrATCILJ
McKeesport, J My 27. The McKeesports
were again disappointed to-day by the Sewlck
leys not showing up, and had another game
forfeited to them 9 to a Tha McKeesports
are about tired of winning games of this kind,
and as they have the club and grounds to play
ball, they wonld like to play the games, as
there is no glory in winning them in this way.
The McKeesports were very weak to-day, and
wonld hardly have won if the other club had
come. The McKeesports sprung a new pitcher
to-day in tne person of ex-Manager Torreyson,
who pitched a great game outside of his wild
ness. When the bewickleys sent word that
they would not be here, the Grays, another
strong club of this city, were engaged to fill
the date at the last moment. The home team
let the Grays have their strongest battery, and
both teams put up a wonderful game, requiring
ten innings to decide. The McKeesports won in
the tenth by a base hit by Gibbons, a steal, and
a two-bagger by Torreyson, with no one ont.
Jones and Farrow, the battery of the Grays,
did elegant work, Jones striking out 11 men,
and Farrow only allowed two stolen bases and
they were both thrown ont only the baseman
missed the throw. The McKeesports are trying
to secure Pennington and Smith, two of the
pitchers of the disbanded Lmsworth club. The

The Liverpool Cap and the Philadelphia
1BT CABLE TO TUX DISPATCH. 1
London, July 27. Copyright. The race
for the Liverpool cup this week proved a good
thing for Veracity, who won very easily. The
same horse won last year, so tbat the conrse
evidently suits him. The favorite. Cotillon,
was completely out of it.
O'Connor and Searle are training steadily on
the Thames, but their practice is without inci
dent. Searle still does the hardest work, but
O'Connor's style calls forth the highest praise
from the English riverside critics. He has ex
tended himself' once or twice lately ou the
river, and then he was voted on all sides to be
a perfect model.
The Gentlemen of Philadelphia made a poor
show in their second Innings against England's
crack club, the Marylebone. This was mainly
due to the rain, which soddened the ground
and enabled the English bowlers to get snch
twists on the ball as the Phlladelphlaus had
evidently not been used to. The Philadelphia
ans are good cricketers; they only want more
practice at bowling. Another thing which
tbey are not likely to get in America is
playing on wet ground, so frequently experi
enced in England. It is always playing under
these conditions which gives Englishmen the
A Great Pacing Race In Prospect.
rsrKCTAL TXLXOBAU TO TUB DlsrATCS.1
Franklin, Pa., July 27. George W.
Haight, of this city, has issued a challenge to
W. D. Rfderto back an unknown horse against
the latter's famous pacing stallion, Arctic,
for $1,000 a stdeuhe race to come off during the
stake races in this city in August. Arctic is
nowraqingin the Central New York Circuit,
and has reduced bis record to 2:3. making
that time id the last heat of a race tbat re
quired eight beats to decide, and the fact that
this was the fastest beat of the race proves
conclusively that the colt is a race horse. Mr.
Kider has replied to Mr. Haight asking him to
name his horse and he will be accommodated
with a race. It Is believed tbat the horse Mr.
Haight is backing is Crawford Wilkes, owned
by Stratum Bros., and as yet an unknown
quantity. As this section is ''race horse crazy"
the probability of this match coming off has
created considerable excitement here.
