GENERAL BASEBALL NEWS OF THE DAI
Victory once more was on the Bide of the
Pittsburg ball team yesterday. They de
feated New York in a remarkably exciting
game. Beckley did 'great work. Boston
beat Cleveland and once again stepped up
to first place in the League race. Chicago
also iron. There were several interesting
All the sensations of a drama wherein a
monster struU to and fro terrorizing every
body until he is throttled and jumped on in
the last scene of the last act, were present
among and felt keenly by the 1,000 people
who visited yesterday's argument at Recrea
tion Park between the Giants, from Hew
Yor?, and the small chaps of this city. The
came will be labeled "a daisy" for years to
come by all who saw it. It was a life and
death struggle from first to last, and, David
like, the little folk just hit their towering
enemy on the right spot and at the right
time and ended all hostilities. The Giants
were downed again, and in this instance
without any question at all Beckley has
earned the title of Jack the Giant Killer. He
brought them to their knees, and great was
the fall thereof.
AVithont doubt yesterday's game was one of
the best that has been witnessed on the home
grounds. It was of the pins and needles kind
that keeps patrons moriac from one side of
their seats to the other just as restless'as the
sea: ever and anon there came stages that
brought a cheerful yell, a happy smile or a very
painful siRb. Probably
THE GEXIAI. MDTKIE'S PEELINGS
underwent as many fluctuations durfng the
game as would a thermometer in an hour were
all the variations of a year's weather com
pressed into that time. What with Jeems'
anxiety to hear from Cleveland about the
fortunes of the Bostons, and the tough struzcle
be had in hand at Recreation Park, he was the
most restless man in Christendom. Fears,
laughter, groans and cneers came and went in
rapid succession. And after all the Giants were
There were mistakes on both sides, but the
visitors had the majority. In one instance luck,
misfortune, or whatever it may be called, was
dead and expensively against them. Had an
unfortunate streak of ill-luck not overtaken
them at the very offset of the game the result
micht have been different. Nobody can tell,
however, because during the latter part of the
game the home players were in just as good
form as the champions. It is seldom that the
home team puts up such a game as tbey did
jesterday. Tbey displayed more vim than
they usually do, and it is safe to say that if the
team could keep up the gait of yesterday and
Thursday, more pennant aspirants than the
New Yorks would frequently be laid low.
SOME VERT BBILLIANT WORK.
The contest abounded in brilliant plays.
Ward and Gore really did creat things, and
had it not been for their very accomplished
fielding the score would have been bigger for
Pittsburg than what it is. Hatfield, however,
was not such a success at short. He went to
that position in the second inning. This
change war caused by an accident thatbefel
Richardson at that stage of the game. Rich
ardson, who was just recovering from the effects
of an injured finger, tried to stop a very hot
grounder from Kuehne's bat. Richardson's
right hand was struck extremely bard by the
ball, and he had to retire. Ward then went to
second and Hatfield to short. As far as Ward
was concerned the change was certainly not
a bad one. but. as stated above. Hatfield was
not a tremendous success. That 214 pounds of
humanity Mr. Crane pitched a good game,
and cp to the beginning of the ninth inning
only six hits and one earned run had been
made off his delivery. Ewing supported hkn
in his usual way, and that means first-class.
JLX d BECKLEY WAS THERE.
Staley also pitched well and received excel
lent support all round. Now and again he was
hit bard but he kept the big hits very far apart.
Becklev's fieldlne was almost as much of a
treat to see as his batting. Both were excel
lent and it was decidedly Beckley's day. The
echoes of the yells that buret forth when he
brought three men home in the ninth Inning
by a terrific hit may be resounding among the
Butler county hills yet.
The visitors drew first blood and that in the
first inning. After two men were out Ewing
got his base on balls and big Roger Connor
went to the plate as if determined to knock
holes in the roofs of the houses in some of the
adjoining wards. The bit: fellow hit the ball
with a dull thud that banged it high over Han
Ion's head for three bases. Staley's immediate
prospects were not of the brightest just then.
Richardson, however, was early retiredat first.
The home representatives tied the score in
the second inniDg. After Fields had been re
tired. Knehne reached first on Richardson's
fumble referred to above. The Kaiser's repre
sentative was advanced a base by Hanlon's
sacrifice and then Dunlap sent out a merry
single to right which sent Knehne home.
. THOSE STUBBORN- GIANTS.
In their balf of the iuning, however, the
Giants insisted on taking the lead again and
that after two of their delegation were
downed. Whitney got his base on balls and
Crane made a nice little scratch hit toward
third base. Then Gore came with a corking
single to middle, sending Whitney home. Tier
nan next loomed up and thumped a terrific low
liner over between first and second. Unfortu
nately for the Giants' prospects, the ball struct
Gore on the lee and he was called out. The hie
was a nard one and might have been a two
bagger. The small chaps clung to the big people like
grim death and tied the score again in the
fourth. Beckley led off with a single to left
and reached second on a very wild throw by
Crane. The wild throw left Beckley sate at
econd and Fields all right on first. Knehne
knocked a fly to Connor and Hanlon knocked a
grounder to Hatfield, who threw very wild to
Ward, and Kuehne scored.
The Giants, however, still insisted on being
first, and in their half of the inning they made
another run. Rowe fnmbled O'Rourke's
grounder and Whitney made a good single to
right field. Carroll threw the ball wildly to
third base and O'Rourke got home on the
In the sixth inning the home players made
something like a determined effort to shake off
the big fellow. Beckley again led off with a
Fingle to left, and Fields flew out to Gore.
Kuebne banged out a double to left and Beck
ley scored. The former reached third on a
passed ball and scored on Ward's fumble of
INSISTED ON A TIE.
The score was now four to three in favor of
the home players, but those determined Giants
tied the score again In their half of the inning.
After Ward had been retired O'Rourke
whacked the bill over Hanlon's bead for three
bags and scored on Whitney's single. This
was excitingand no mistake.
The ninth inning and the score stood 4 to 1
Bverybody moving impatiently. Dunlap
started the inning and got bis base on balls.
For the fourth time Staley struck out and
Miller knocked out a single to left. Then Car
roll flew out to Ward amid a painful silrnce.
Rowe made a short single, filling the bases, and
amid what doubtless was a breathless excite
ment, if such a thing is at a ball came, Beckley
walked np to the plate. There was a vacant
place far out in center field and with one big
swipe the Giant Beckley banged a liner into it
and sent In three runs. OhI but there was yel
ling. The visitors got two men on bases after
two men were out, but Beckley made a re
markable stop of Connor's grounder and the jig
was up. Following is the score:

SPECIAL TZLXOBAM TO TBI DISPATCH.1
Eochesteb, August 16. Everything
looked favorable for the conclusion of the
grand circuit meeting this morning, as the
weather was warm and clear, but shortly
after noon it grew cloudy and cold. Before
starting the horses a shower fell, but not
enough to interfere with calling the unfin
ished 2:18 class, in which Susie S had two
heats from yesterday. Another heat ended
the contest, as the young Kentucky mare was
able to beat Kit Carry, the only one of the
field that could get near her.
The 2:17 came next, and after the first heat a
heavy rain drove the spectators nnder cover,
and stopped proceedings for some time. At
last it cleared up sufficiently to go on, but the
course was soft and heavy, and the heats were
much slower than they would hare been. The
2.17 pace took six heats to decide, but finally
Ed Annan outlasted the party, and pulled oft
the victory, as be did last week at Buffalo.
Ketch had a very easyvictory in the 2.33 class,
jogging home a long way ahead each time.
A OBZAT STJKPBISE.
The free-f or all trot was a surprise to those
who backed Gean Smith for a winner, for
Harry Wilkes reeled off the victory In straight
heats in very slow time. Gean Smith broke In
the last two heats and was far in the rear.
Belle Hamlin trotted in 2 J6 a very good mile
on the heavy track.
To day Susie 8 brought $100 to J20 for the field
before the third heat of the 208 class. Going
away Kit Curry outfooted Susie S. and came so
close that the latter broke on account of the
foul. She caught handily, and trailed Kit to
the third quarter, and on the homestretch out
trotted her easily, winning the heat by a scant
length in 220.

pool sellers were hit 'rather hard to-day on the
fourth race at Brighton Beach. Through some
mistake the result of the race was sent to all
the rooms giving Tenbooker first, Bronzo
marte second and Benedictine tblrd places.
The time was also received by the
"bookies" and for fully ten mlnutesTenbcoker
tickets ere paid. Suddenly dispatches were-
received irom the Western Union not to pay off
on the races. It was too late then, for several
thousands of dollars had already been paid.
The true result of the race was received a few
minntes later, and it read Bronzomarte first,
Tenbooker second, and Benedictine third.
When this was announced a new line of Bron
zomarte ticket holders was formed, and all
were paid off.
A prominant downtown bookmaker, in talk
ing to,a reporter of The Dispatch; said: "We
wiii probably not lose anything by the mistake,
as the telegraph company is responsible tons
when we receive the third horse and time of a
race from them." The poolrooms' agent or
the agent of the Western Union Telegraph
Company must have been posted somewhere in
view of the finish with a racing glass, and
trusted to his eyesight for the winner. The
three horses named finished heads apart, and
the watcher picked the wrong one.

"THE BEST IS
"any persons are under the
pensive, and intended for
fact is, the price is lower than for ordina'ry soaps,-; quality con
sidered, for in the "Ivory" no "cheapeners" or "makeweights"
are used,' so the buyer gets all -" true soap " for her money. Its
harmlessness, durability and efficiency admit of its being used for
all purposes with equal satisfaction and economy in the families
of the rich or poor.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many wMte soaps, each represented to be "just as good astiie'lvoryV
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
