Talk About the Dempsey and La Blanche
AFFA1E8 OF THE CHAMPIOA' PUGILISTS
A subject which is of interest to all is
that relating to what clubs will compose the
National League next season. Of course it
is somewhat early just now to figure or con
jecture in any definite way about the mat
ter. However, from what I know I am
fully convinced that there will be no
changes in the League's composition. I
know that there is considerable talk about
Cincinnati taking the place of some team in
the League; but in discussing this feature
the very first question that presents itself is
what club is going to leave the League? It
is quite clear to everybody that if no club
withdraws there will be no room for Cincin
nati. There is nothing to show that any of
the 'Western clubs in the National League
intend to withdraw; on the contrary, they
have already declared their intention to re
main in. The only possible hope for Cincinnati
is the withdrawal of Indianapolis, because
there is no fear at all of Chicago, Cleveland
and Pittsburg. Well, I have it on the
authority of President Brush that Indianapolis
will most certainly remain -in the League for
next season at least. This, then, seems to set
tle the matter. We are also told that Brooklyn
will take the place nf Washington next season,
but President Hewitt assures ns all on his
honor that he has no intention whatever or
withdrawing from the League. Therefore w6
may expect no. changes in that direction.
Doubtless from Washington to Brooklyn
would be a very profitable change, and so
would a change from Indianapolis to Cincin
nati. But it is not likely that the League will
force any of its present members out to take
in new ones. Besides, if Mr. Spalding's plan
of organization or reorganization is adopted
what it termed the poor clubs in the League
will be considerably benefited.
Spalding' New Plan.
So far I have had nothing to say regarding
the proposed plan of organization by Mr.
Spalding. I would have refrained from saying
anything about it jnst now had not a con verna
tion with President Nlmick a few days ago
prompted me to deal with one feature of re In
considering Mr. Spalding's scheme, there is a
feature in it that seems to cling to all these
new methods or plans. I refer to the absence
of first principles and often tho presence of
something in direct violation of them. We
had better all become convinced that anything
founded on untrue or unsound principles
cannot be permanently successful. I argued
this point fully when the classification scheme
was first adopted, aid my objections to it then
have become general. So much bo that wo
may look for a Changs in it next fall. Well,
one of the greatest objections I have to Mr.
Spalding's scheme is its dealings with minor
leagues. It seems to consider that the only
mission that minor leagues have or ought to
have is to develop players for the big organiza
tions. Of course the fact that minor league
clubs are just as important to those connected
with them and who patronize them as are Na
tional League Clubs to its officers and patrons,
is lost sight of entirely. Mr. Spalding proposes
that a certain cut and dried price, be
put on the head of each minor league player
and that a major league clnb be allowed to buv
Sthat player at any time. Now here is a certain
result of a system of this kind. Suppose De
troit is leading for the International Leacue
pinnant, and suppose this lead is the result of.
the work of a good battery. But just when a
permanent victory seems certain a major league
club demands that battery and pnts up the
price, and then down goes the club and its re
ceipts fall off. I don't think that the minor
leagues will ever agree to an arrangement of
this kind. But Mr. Nimicktold me the other
day that if they did not they would not be
afforded the protection of the National agree
ment. It would, therefore, seem that there is a
aesiro to wnip tne nttie people into line, and if
this is done I don't know by what name the
action or conduct will be designated by the
magnates, but it will be nothing short of
The Pennant Race.
The struggle for the League pennant is a fine
one, and no mistake about it. Five orasix posi
tions are being fought for with a determina
tion that is both remarkable and exciting.
There is nothing like a good neck and neck
contest, and surely nobody can desire to see
anything more neck and neck than Boston and
New York; Cleveland and Philadelphia; In
dianapolis and Pittsburg. I still cling to the
Giants, and I am still convinced that they arc
the best team, take them all round, in the
League. But there is anincertainty connected
with them that must ever be kept in mind. I
refer to their pitchers. If Keefe can hold
out steadily, I don't see how the New Yorks
cannot win the pennant. If the two pitchers
named were In their best form, and also Rad
boume and ClarLson, I think we would all bo
inclined to speculate m favor of the Giants. I
I make this provision, therefore, that bar ac
cidents, the Giants will again get the pennant.
Chicago is looming up in doing great things,
but I fear they are a little too
late in starting. Had Anson and
his team commenced their effort
a few weeks earlier they might have collared
the leaders ere the finish was reached. But if
we figure a little on tho percentages now we'll
find that it is hardly possible for Anson's team
to get first or second. II is apparently positive
talk about Chicago going to win the pennant
can be put down as bluff and nonsense. Cleve
land is still playing a good game, and will
likely continue to do so to the end. Its pitch
ers are not as gay and vigorous as they used to
be, but they are in good condition, and it will
not surprise many if Cleveland keeps ahead of
Chicago right on to the end of the race. To be
sure, Chicago's pitchers are in great form just
now, and we must not forget that the home
team is still that disappointing combination
that it has always been. At picscnt it would
seem as if there was nothing wrong with tha
team. Staler, Morris, Galvin and bowders are
all in good shape, and the balance of the team
seem all right. I don't sec that there is any
thing to bolster up as an excuse for defeats
now except the plain and significant fact of
poor playing. If tho players keep all right and
play as the) can pUy they certainly will land
ahead of Indianapolis, but not a st'p higher
will they get. But there is little to choose be
tween sixth and seventh places; both fere bad,
and it may not be wide of the mark to say that
Pittsburg will not stand In sixth place very
Local Club Troubles.
The local club is not clear of its troubles yet
by any means. So far this season there has
been great difficulty in getting tho right kind
of players, and now the efforts of the club offi
cials will be used in securing a manager. A
few days ago Secretary Scandrctt intimated to
roe that the Sunday arrangement will not be
permanent, ana that means a new manager
will be secured. It certainly woubj be a very
gratlfj ing fact if the clnb conld make a man
ager of its own. If Sunday could be tried and
found equal to the occasion it would be well,
indeed, to giro bira all the encouragement pos
sible. However, it seems safe to say that the
directors of the club will meet and decide to
have a permanent manager outside the players.
It will be difficult to replace Manager Phillips,
because, amid his shortcomings, he was a very
able and conscientious manager. We have
many examples of the tronble there is in get
. ting a manager suitable to all parties con
cerned. We all know of the difficulties that
Indianapolis bad before a manager of a suit
able quality was secured. With this fact be
fore us it Would seem well for the directors to
proceed slowly in tho matter, if it is now con
sidered certain that Mr." Phillips will not man
age.the team any more.
The Big Boat Race.
As September 9 approaches the spotting
world is turning its attention to the big scull
ing race between O'Connor and Searle. The
Affair promises to be the aquatic event of the
year. It ought to be, because the world's
championship is at stake, and we are told that
the two scnllers are the best that have over
been known. This is a very breezy statement,
but I ain inclined to think there is much truth
in it. I know that very good judges say that
nobody bas been seen to equal either Searle or
O'ConnoV in speed. Of course Americans will
mostly extend their sympathies to O'Connor,
but whoever wins the title will still be under
the British Hag. America is not in the race at
all, and there is much to lament in thi. It is
not long since we had a whole legion of first
class scullers; we had so many and they were
sogood that it looked a if the championship
would never be taken from the Stars and Stripes
There is more or less talk of Tocmer making a
bid for highest honors again. He may do so,
but if Searle is betier than O'Connor tho Mc
Keesport man will have great difficulty in find
lng backers to sf and him azalnst the Austra
lian. There is every Indication that the race
wilt be one of heavy speculation. Already
there has been big bets made on the event in
this country. We may naturally expect that
Searle will be favorite in England, because
there is a very large amount of Australian
money there to back him. However, I am at
present disposed to think that O'Connor will
follow the example of Hanlan and brine the
the title to this side of the Atlantic On public
form I think that O'Connor bas the best of it,
that is, taking Beach as the standard. Beach,
when at his best, had the greatest difficulty to
defeat Gaudaur, and we all know that O'Con
nor can easily leave Gaudaur behind at any
stage. True, Searle has also beaten Beach, but
the latter is not the sculler now he used to be.
and he Is fast getting into the "sear and yellow
loaf" period. It is safe to say, at any rate, that
were O'Connor and Beach going to row now
the former wonld be a very strong favorite.
However, we will know more about the condi
tion of Searle and O'Connor before the day of
the race arrives.
Drmper-y and La Blanche
Patrons of the fistic arena are now looking
toward the coming battle between Jack Demp
sey and George La Blanche, the "Marine." It
is expected that it will be a good encounter
and that some desperate fighting will be done.
Recently there have been rumors to the effect
that Dempsey is in very poor condition, but
there is nothing to prove this. On the con
trary, I am informed that Dempsey is just as
goodjhysically asMie ever was, and if this is
true I have no hesitation in saimg that ho will
again beat the Marine. Tho latter will be no
better than when he met Dempsey before, and
ho was far short of being equal to tho Nonpa
reil then. It may be that the Marine will not
be as good as he was when be last met Demp
sey. However, no matter what condition he
may be in, he is a class below Dempsey as a
fighter. His reach is much too short to cope
with a man of Dempsey's abilities as a boxer.
But the loser, 1 understand, is to receive 500,
and even that amount is worth fighting for
Anions (ho Champions.
John L. Sullivan has notreceivedhis sentence
yet, but he will do so this week. Tho general
opinion is that only a light fine will be im
posed.' and if he is sent to prison there will be
a very great surprise. If all stories are true
about the power and influence of money down
South, Sullivan should have an easy time of
it, becauso ho and his friends have lots of
cash. It may be that he will be fined 51,000
and admonished to go and sin no more. How
ever, we never can tell what will happen in a
court room. Tho action of Governor Lowery
cannot fail to have a great effect on outdoor
prizefighting. It is likely that Sullivan will
not take part in any more encounters except
under the auspices of a private club. This is
none the worse for the champion, as he will be
able for a long time to come to com
mand any amount of money, pro
viding he keeps sober. Undoubtedly,
Sullivan has been born under a lucky star com-
Eared with the old time champions. He has
ad three prize ring encounters, two of them
miserably tame, and now he is at the top of the
pugilistic ladder with plenty of money. It is
not likely that Smith and Sullivan will ever
meet on the turf, and it is still less likely that
Sullivan and Jackson will ever meet at all.
The tatter's color is Sullivan's eyesore, and it
is a pity that the line shouldbe drawn so finely.
A great many people are of opinion that Jack
son would defeat Sullivan were thev to ever
meet. While I believe Jackson to be a good
and powerful man I don't think there is anj
thmg to show that be is a superior man to Sul
livan. If Jackson is a game roan, and there
have been some very came colored men, he
should be able to dispose of Kilrain. If tho
latter and Jackson were to meetat the Califor
nia Athletic Club rooms the contest would
beapopula- and interesting one. Slavin. an
other Australian, is also on tne scene. He, too,
wants to fight anybody, and claims to be the
champion of Australia. The best thing for
Jackson and Slavin to do is to meet as soon as
possible and have their respective claims set
tled in the ring. Jem Smith, the English
champion, has finally secured a match. Ho is
to fight Jack Wannop ten rounds, Queensberry
rules. This contest does not add to the fame of
Smith, as Wannop was rated as a very poor
boxer in this country. If Smith does defeat
Wannop, nobody will have extra word of praise
to say about it.
About the Lightweights.
The lightweight bruisers have apparently
gone, into obscurity. Not long ago we were
almost talked to death about Meyer, McAit
liffc, Daly, eta Now we can never see their
names in print. To a great extent there is a
cause for this. The public has not forgotten
the affair between Meyer and McAuliffe. At
the time of their fight I ventured the opinion
that their encounter would do much to injure
the success of pugilistic contests. It was one of
the modern farces which havo been so numer
ous lately Since that affair both men have to
a great extent disappeared from view. The
lesson ought to have good results and tepd to
prevent a repetition of the Meyer-McAuliffo
A Big Sprint Hnndlcnp.
Arrangements are being made for a big
sprint handicap, and also another of a quarter
of a mile. It Is some time since there was a
professional sprint handicap here on a large
scale, and the one in question ought to be a
great success. There are lots of sprinters in
and abont Pittsburg, and the rivalry among
them is very strong. Like many other branches
of sport, sprinting has declined wonderfully of
late years in ims country, ana particularly in
Western Pennsylvania. A handicap promoted
on fair principles will do much to bring that
class of sport to the front again.
The Buffalo Meeting.
The Grand Circuit races which finished at
Buffalo on Friday were fully up to the standard
and that says a great deal. The Buffalo people
follow an extraordinary meeting, that of Cleve
land, and to'keep anything near the degree of
quality put up by tho Forest City is no easy
task. However, Buffalo did well, and the
meeting was only marred by ralnou the last
day. During the week two very speedy cus
tomers were prominent, viz: Star Lily and
Nelson; the latter iB a model, and is in the
Rochester $10,000 stake. I might add that
Ketch is also in the big stake, but Nelson
seems a very dangerous opponent for anything
br anybody. Pbinole.

CLEVELAND AND NEW I0BK WINNERS.
Eesults of Local Amateur Contests sod Other Base
There were two games at Recreation Park
yesterday afternoon between the Pittsburg
and Washington teams. Each won one.
There was au exciting I0-inning game be
tween Boston and Chicago, the former win
ning. Cleveland and the New Yorks were
also winners. There were also numerous
local amateur games of interest.
Had the home team been playing in any
kind of luck yesterday they would have
taken two games from the Senators during
the afternoon. Oi course, many people will
say that a little better hitting would have
done better than anything else; but the fact
is that there were plenty oi hits in the first
game to win it had any been made at more
opportune times. However, it is useless to
cry over spilt milk. If two games were not
won, two were not lost So honors were easy.
There used to be a time when two games at
Recreation Park for one price of admission
was a magnet strong enough to attract a very
largo crowd. That magnet, however, has lost
its charm and it wields a very impotent influ
ence now. Defeat after defeat have broken up
the talisman and yesterday the attendance did
not reach 3,000, notwithstanding the day was
Saturday. The crowd was a noisy one, however,
if it was not very large, the occupants of the
left fielders bleachers were particularly merry
and demonstrative. Many of them were evfc
dently out for a day and their yelling and ap
plause at very trivial things indicated they
HAVINO A HIGH OLD TIME.
The weather was fine and the playing was
not bad. The visitors, however, are a weak
delegation of players, and it requires them to
play steadily at their best to make an interest
ing game with any kind of League team.
The first game yesterday was tolerably well
played, but it is a long time since such a poor
exhibition of base running has been clven by
Sunday as he gave in yesterday's first game.
It is not unreasonable to say that Sunday's
poor judgment on bases. lost the game. Had
dock pitched a good game, no doubt, and bis
work was a very great Improvement on that of
Thursday, but Sowders was a trifle better
than Haddock, and the failure to win must be
attributed to something else. The fact is that
Sunday took too much liberty with Haddock
and Daly. Haddock is a very quick and active
fellow and Daly was in excellent throwing
form. Three times was Sunday nabbed, and
two of them meant a loss of runs. In the first
inning he made a splendid hit to middle and
was easily nabbed in trying to steal second. It
was unwise to try and steal at the time, because
the way in which Carroll has been securing
bases on balls lately gave strong hope of Sun
day's getting to second without any risk. Well,
Carroll got his base on balls, and so. did Rowe,
which meant that had Sunday been a little pa
tient there would have been three men on bases
and nobody out. Then Miller banged out a
single to left and Beckley was retired at first,
no runs being made.
THEIB ONLY BUN.
The home team were first to score. In the
fifth inning Kuehne reached first on a muffed
fly by Beecher and got to third on Dunlap'B
single to middle. Dnnlap stole second, and
while be was doing so. Kuehne dodged home,
but made ah extremely narrow escape at the
In the sixth Inning the visitors made a gopd
and lucky little rally. Hoy led off with a hot
single over second base, and Wilmot knocked
out a two bagger in the same direction. Hoy
did some good base running, and got home on
the hit. After Beecher was out and A. Irwin
was at bat, Wilmot started to steal third, and
jnst as he did so Irwin knocked the ball to
Dunlap. Before Irwin was retired, however, at
first, Wilmot was across the plate.
In the eighth inning the home team looked
like winning or tieing the score. Sunday led
off and got his base on balls, and Carroll was
hit by a pitched ball. Rowe made a good
single to left, and Sundav. foolishly enouzh.
tried to score on it. He was easily thrown out
at home, and had he stopped on third the bases
would have been filled, and nobody out. Mil
ler flew out to Wise, and Beckley struck out,
with a man on second and tblra.
THE GAME TVE WON",
the second game was of the lively kind, though
it was somewhat onesided. Sullivan was in
the box for the visitors and Staley pitched for
the home team. Sullivan pitches a puzzling
ball when he gets steadily down to work, but at
times he Is fearfully wild. Yesterdajr he com
menced very erratically. He was well sup
ported. Indeed, both sides played an excellent
fielding game. White and Wise made great
Salllvan commenced by hitting Sunday on
the arm with the ball. Carroll then Tapped ont
a single to left field, and both runners were
advanced a base on Rowe's sacrifice. Sunday
was nabbed at the plate on Miller's life hit.
Miller stole second and Beckley got his base on
balls, filling tne bases. White knocked a
grounder in front of Sullivan and the latter
fumbled it and fell over It long enough to
allow both Carroll and Miller to score. White
stole secondhand Kuehne's long single to right
sent both Beckley and White home.
staxey's good hit.
In the second inning Staley led off with a
double to left field. Sunday fouled out, and
CarroU's long fly to Hoy advanced Staley to
third. Rowe was hit with a pitched ball and
stole second, and both nfen scored on Miller's
two-bagger over Hoy's head. After Rowe was
out in the seventh Inning, Miller got his base
on balls and stole second. He scored on Beck
ley's double to right held. White's sacrifice
sent Beckley to third, and he scored on
Kuehne's long two-bagger to right Kuehne
tried to make third on the hit, but slipped and
was put out.
The visitors made their first run in the fifth
inning. J. Irwin knocked out a liner to Carroll
and the ball bounded over the tatter's head,
Irwin, therefore, made third bag . luckily.
Carney's long fly to Sunday sent Irwin home.
In the eighth inning the Senators let them
selves loose a little. Mack and Carney each
led off with a single 'and Sullivan flew out.
Wise made a single, sending bome Mack, and
Hoy's sacrifice sent Carney home. Then Wit
mot banged out a splendid three-bagcer to the
right field fence, sending Wise home. Beecher
flew out, retiring the side. In the last inning
A. Irwin got his base on balls, and reached
third on his brother's hit. A single by Carney
sent in the run. Following are the scores of
the two games:

HART WILL STAY WITH BOSTON
Until Kext Tear, When He Will Join Spnld
rSPECIAI, TILEORAM TO THE DISTATCH.
Chicago, August 10. Manager Hart has no
intention of resigning the management of the
Boston club. He will play the string out unless
something of a still more unpleasant nature
turns up. It Is safe to say, however, that he
will be on A. G. Spalding's pay roll after No
vember L It is not known that any positive ar
rangements have been made between the two,
but it is thought to be practically settled that
Hart will enter Spalding's employ at the end of
the present baseball year. Hart has been under
engagement with the Chicago ball magnate be
fore to the entire satisfaction of both, and It is
not at all unlikely that be will have charge of a
great portion of Mr. Spalding's widely branch
me business. ,
The Billings telegrams have not raised any
particular disturbance among the Boston play
ers. They have no more fear of the ranting
'director than they had before, and will act on
the advice of President Soden to play their best
and win all tho games they can. This comes
from an authoritative source and may bo re
garded as cie. ect
How They Stand.
The League pennant race is probably more"
exciting now than it has been this season. Bos
ton and New York are fighting like demons,
and so are Philadelphia and Cleveland, with
Chicago close up. Tho Hooslers and Pitts
burgs are having a neck-and-neck tussle. Chi
cago has not improved much during the week,
and Philadelphia has not made much progress.
Cleveland Is steadying down again, and the
Giants are bracing up. At Present the race'
looks as If tho first four will fight it out. The
following table shows how the clubs stand In
the race and also how they stand as compared
with one another: .

Game From Brooklyn.
St. Loots. August 10. The greatest game
ever seen in St. Louis this season was played
to-day between the Browns and Brooklyns, and
the latter succumbed after a desperate strug
gle of ten Innings. Chamberlain pitched in
grand form and was magnificently supported,
with the possible exception of Latham, who
played very indifferently. Wonderful coaches,
brilliant stops and pretty hard hitting charac
terized the game. In which Duftee, Corkhill,
McCarthy. O'Neill, Comlskey and Burns dis
tinguished themselves. Comiskey's all-around
work was a great feature. He was the recipi

fSFZCTAI. TXL2QBA11 TO THE PIBPATCH.1
McKkespobt, August 10. McKeesport
easily defeated the Keystones again to-day.
although (hey put up a better game than yes
terday and Douglass pitched a good game, but
was badly supported by his catcher. Thompson.
Miller, Hartman and Gibbons made some won
derful fly catches. Bell, of the Keystones, also
caught a good fly back of third base. Costello,
Roy and Provins batted very well. Pennington
and Smith were the battery for McKeesport,
and did well. Smith pitched last Saturday
for the home club, but had no con
trol of the ball and could not use
the drop balk Pennington caught very
well, and with practice will make a good man
for the home club. McKeesport has no one to
fear except East End Athletics for the cham
pionship, and when they play them next month
they will be In better shape than now.
Homestead would have been up in the race
if they had been in shape early in the season.
McKeeSDOrt Will most likelv snenrn Rnvit of
the Scottdales, and will then have a good
catcher, and they now have Phillips. Smith
and Pennington as pitchers, and several others
to be tried; Boyd and Hartman as catchers,
Quinn, Costello, Nightengale,. Hartman and
Martin for the infield, and Morissey. Gibbons,
Provins, R. Smith and G. bmith for the out
field, and Torrenson may be able to play before
tho season ends; so the club will soon be in
