Pittsburg's ball players were again vic
torious at Cleveland yesterday. Hanlon
made a home run. and Carroll hit the ball
hard. The Hoosiers beat Chicago, and Bos
ton easily defeated the Giants. There are
arrangements going on for general local
match games of ball.
rGrECIAI TELEGHA.M TO IHB DISFATCII.l
Cleveland, August 20. Pitcher Staiey
was the medium of Cleveland's defeat to
day. The young man was invincible, and
when Cleveland men were on bases the
Babies tried ineflectually to hit the ball.
The ieft-on-base column of the score amply
proves this. Beatin, on the contrary, was
hit pretty freely. He seems to have lost his
cunning-, for even the weak hitters of the
Allegheny team found the ball often. The
fielding was sharp all round, but Dunlap,
McAlecr. Sunday and Strieker distinguished
themselves and received load applause. Over
1.000 people saw the game. A chance was
offered the visitors to score in both the first
and second innings, but accurate fielding kept
them from sending runs over the plate.
JOCKO'S GOOD HIT.
Staler, the first man at the bat in the third,
batted a swift grounder, which glanced off
Gilks' knee, boncd'ng toward Strieker, giving
the runner safe at first. Carroll then lined the
ball to left for two bases, sending Staler to
third. Rowe was out on a pop riy to Strieker.
Beckley hit to Gilks. who threw Staiey out at
the plate. Becklcy was safe at first and stole
second. Fields then singled to left, scoring
Carroll and Beckley. Hanlon's fly out to
McAleer retired the side. The seventh netted
nttsburg four runs, settling the game in their
favor. Beatin would not let Carroll, the first
batter, touch a small portion of the ball, and
sent him to first on balls. Rowe duplicated
Staley's hit of the third and Carroll went to
second. Beckley singled to right, advancing
Carroll and Rowe a base. Fields protested
that he had not struck at three balls, but the
umpire sent him to the bench.
HAKLOS'S HOME KITS'.
Hanlon came to bat, caught one of Beatin's
slow balls fairly on the end cf the bat and sent
it past Twitchell to the left field fence. Han
lon was at the plate when the ball was fielded
into the diamond, and three runners preceded
the center fielder to the plate. This ended the
run for the visitors. In the eighth, after two
men were out. Carroll sent a triple to left, but
Rowe left him on third on an easy fly to Gilts.
Sharp fielding prevented the Cleveland from
scoring in the first, third, fourth and fifth in
nings. Big Beckley allowed Radford's grounder
in the first to bound against him and then roll
into Sunday's territory. Strieker was given
bis base. Two men were on bases with no one
out when McKean, the club's leadinc batsman,
stepped up to the plate. He couldn't find a
ball that he could hit, and a strike out was ac
corded Staiey. Twitchell was soon out on a
foul to Fields, and Tebeau was retired at
DXSVLXV'S BRILLIANT PICK-UP
and throw. After Beatin had been called out
on strikes in the third Radford was given bis
base on balls, stole second and went to third on
Strieker's single past Rowe; Dunlap cared for
McKean's high fly. and fielded Twitchell's
grounder to Beckley. With ono out In the
fourth McAleer hit safely to left and stole sec
ond, but Gilks was ont on Dunlap's catch and
Rowe fielded Zimmer out at first. In the fifth,
mth two out, Strieker singled but McKean was
out on Kuehne's pick-up and assist. The
Cleveland scored their only run in the ninth,
Twitchell led of with a sincle to center. Fields
moved back to the back stop and Twitchell
ambled to second, Tebeau retired at first,
Twitchell goingto third on the out and home
at his leisure. The score:

on the part of the champions. Seward essayed
to pitch, tut bis cunning was lost against the
Brown's heavy onslaught. Chamberlin pitched
a masterly game, and was superbly supported.
The feature of the game was the brilliant all
round work of Fuller. He accepted all but one
of 12 chances, bis error being an excusable one.

JACKSON AND FALLON.
They Blake a One-Sided Boxing Show at
New York, August 20. Peter Jackson, the
ebony-hued Antipodean fighter, and Jack Fal
lon, of Brooklyn, met last night at Mike Shine's
circus. Fourth avenuo and Fourteenth street,
for a four-round friendly bout. "Parson"
Davies, Jackson's backer, stated that there
would be no slugging, as Inspector Williams
Looked at from a flehter's standpoint the
match was a farce. Jackson hit his man when
and where he pleased, and Fallon seemed ut
terly incompetent to stop the colored man's
blows.. In the first round he struck out a few
times for his man, but came no nearer landing
than If he struck for the Bartholdl statue. Fal
lon is a third-class fighter, and has no more
reason to stand against the Australian than the
"Belfast Spider" has to stand against JohnL.
Jackson has a tremendous reach, and has
science connleS with it. Fallon has a short
leach and very little science. In the second,
third and fourth rounds he occasionally
touched bis man, but the blows lacked force,
tor the simple reason that Jackson could
always manage to get away from him and send
In a heavy neck blow in return.
Davies leaves for Encland to-morrow on the
City of Rome with Jackson, his trainer, and
Fallon and his wife. He is not entirely pleased
with Fallon's work, bnt is of the opinion that,
after Jackson has used him for a punching bag
a couple of weeks, be will, improve enough to
make a decent showing before an English
Fallon Is the man who has made much of a
reputation secured by besting Dommtck Mc
Caffrey during his recent sick spell In Philadel
phia, about two years ago.
FOUGHT THIRTEEN ROUNDS.
Two Franklin Fighters Have a Hot Contest
Fbaneltn, Pa, August 20. A brutal prize
fight came off on an Island in the Allegheny
river, near this city, last night between two
voung men named Hanlon and Lowry. The
fight was to settle the question of which
was the best man and a wager of $100. A purse
was also raised by the spectators tor the winner.
The men were seconded by two well-known
sports, while a person posted on such matters
acted as referee. The fight was of the hurri
cane order, and after the first few rounds
science was thrown away and the men went in
to see which conld do the most damage. Thir
teen bloodv rounds were fought, when Lowry
was forced to give in from sheer exhaustion.
Both men were badly hurt.

Intended bv Mr. Ragg, a Bostonlan.

position until the arrival of Mr. Bugg.
Mr. Bugg has tor many years been con
nected with the management of street car
lines in Boston, and was selected for his

acquisition for the Citizens' line.

Teemer's articles, except the old point as to
the condition of the water. St. John's letter,
which undoubtedly has the genuine sportsman
ring about it, is as follows:
To the Sporting Editor of the Dispatch:
Your telegram at band, and while we don't like
the Idea of rowing atTeemer's home, nofmaklng
the distance four miles, fully believing that three
miles is as long a distance as any man shonld row,
we will accept and cover his deposit provided the
following points are Incorporated In the articles
First That the condition of the water shall be
leftto the men. This condition Is important to ns
and is fair for'evcryone. Gaudaur can't row on
rough water and don't want to be compelled to
row unless the water Is smooth.
Second That tiaudaur receives $300 for ex
penies. Third That The Pittsbubo Dispatch Is final
'" Fourth That the stakeholder shall appoint a
referee 11 we fall to agree upon one one week be
fore the race.
Fifth That the race Is rowed under the rules of
the National Association so as to cover the point
of the outside interference.
Me want a contest under fair and Just condi
tions where the chances will be eqnal. Such a
eontest can only take place on smooth water and
without Interference. I shonld like to get Teemer
to agree, that If he wins this race he will row
Gaudaur 3 miles at Bt. Lonls, we allowing him
expenses. 1 feel that our chances are better on a
lake course of three miles.
Neither Gandanr or Hammllke the Idea of a
4-mlle race at McKeesport. bnt there has been so
much talk over the race that 1 don't want It to fall
through from any fault ol onrs.
.Enclosed find draft to cover Teemer's lorfelt.
J. A. St. John.
It is almost certain that Teemer will agree to
the point relating to the condition of the water,
as it is not of much importance on the Mc
Keesport course. Teemer's articles, a oopy of
which will be forwarded to Mr. St. John to
day, are substantially the same as the condi
tions outlined by Mr. St. John.
Teemer's articles state that the race takes
place on Friday. September 13, between the
hours of 4 and 6 o'clock P. M.

the air four or five horses back of the leader.
The horse attacked to It was Veritas, driven bv
Budd Doble. His bind sboe had caught in the
boot on the forefoot and it caused him to turn
a somersault while the sulky bounded clear over
him and Doble was hurled out with great vio

so entangled in the harness that he could not

MOEBIS PAEK OPENED.
New York's Costly Race Track's Inaugural
Day a Great Success A Description
of the Costly Building Results of
tbe Interesting Races.
Nrw YOEK, August 20. "Morris Park," as
It will be commonly called, in contradistinction
from Jerome and Monmouth Park race tracks
was regularly opened as a race course to-day.
It Is the property of Mr. John Morris, who had
associated with him in Its management, the
New York Jockey Club. The grounds and
track are located In West Chester county on
the Harlem branch of the New York, New
Haven and Hartford Railroad and aro partly
within rbe city limits, Tbe new course has
the finest buildings and arrangements of any in
the world. An idea of its completeness may be
trained from the fact that Its sub-drainage cost
250,000. Its grand stand is the largest and most
complete of any In the world, and all its appur
tenances ar in the highest degree the best of
modern times. The park has both elliptical and
stralght-away tracks, and it is believed that
they will be. when properly settled and con
ditioned, tbe fastest in America.
The inaugural meeting began under very fa
vorable auspices. It is, without doubt, the
finest race course in the world: tne famous
Flemington course at Melbourne until now
held to be the finest. It Is tho mammoth track
of the world, and all of its appointments are on
a magnificent scale. When one looks from tbe
rear of the judges' box at tbereceptacle for the
public he appreciates fully that Its designa
tion, "the Grand Stand," is most appropriate.
It Is a erand stand in every way that it is con
sidered. The lawn in front of it is on a hill
side. The floor of the betting room Is fully 12
feet above tbe race track, and this affords
everybody who wishes to use it a natural slope
from which every portion of the track Is visi
ble. When its infields shall have been made
beautiful with flowers and plants it will bo the
most beautiful courso known.
Said one horseman: "Here at last Is the placo
where the public and horsemen have a show.
Heretofore tbe associations have taken nearly
everything. This marks a new era in racing.
The horsemen have first, second and third
money in every race. It will not bo long be
fore every bookmaker will lay one, two, three
odds as well."
The first bet recorded on the track was made
by Bookmaker Heineman. who laid S3 to 86
against Brlttanic with neighboring bookers.
He took $100 of this money at the above odds.
Tho erand stand fluttered from its Jackstaffa
novelty In the shape of flags representing the
colors of every stable represented at the track.
The first horse to appear with a jockey in ool
ors was Brlttanic Folo's was the first number
hoisted on the telegraph board, and "Haywaro,"
the name of the rider, was the first posted on
the jockey board. The attendance was tre
mendous. The grand stand has 15,000 chairs,
and three-fourths of them were occupied when
tbe bell tapped for the first race,and there were
f ally as many more persons down stairs in the
betting ring and on the lawn. One of tbe fea
tures of the afternoon was tbe presentation to
Mr. J. A Morris, by some New Orleans friends,
who came here for the purpose, of a beautiful

BANK BOTES TORN IN TWO.
Devices of the -Improvident to Keep From
From the New York gun.
Two young crooks were arrested sometime
ago on suspicion of committing highway rob
bery by knocking down a drunken man and
rifling bis pockets. When they were searched
beforo being sent to their cells, the halves of
two one dollar bills were found in a pocket
of one tbe young men, and tbe natural in
ference was. that the bills were torn In getting
them out of the drunkard's pocket. After
the voung men were locked up, another of the

one of tbe detectives. He learned about tho
finding of the bills "Were they like theseT"
he asked, taking the other portions of the sam e
bills from bis pocket.
"Yes," said the detective, "andl guess I want

there's lots of fellows to prove it"
There was no reason to doubt the story, and
tbe cashier said he had seen it done before by
fellows who were afraid to trust themselves
with money for fear of spending it too quickly.
He said there was one customer of the place
who tore bills In bait in this manner and left a

FINEST MAUSOLEUM ON EARTH
Tiro Janitors to Take Cars of it Through
All Future Time.
A COUPLE OF MAGNIFICENT CASKETS
That Have Been in Process of Construction for Nearly
In one of the snbnrban towns near Boston
the finest mausoleum in the world is being
erected. It is the work of a devoted wife,
who expects to take her place therein by the
side of her dead husband. The caskets are
almost completed, after five years' work.
rgrzctil. TEI.EOKJLM TO TUX DI8FATCR.1
Boston, Mass., Angnst 20. All the
world, or a 'good share of it, has heard of
the pomp with which Mrs. Dr. Hiller con
ducted the funeral of her husband last No
vember in Wilmington, of which town he
was one of the best known and most re
spected citizens. Host people in Boston
know, too, that two of the most magnificent
bnrial caskets ever designed by man are be
ing constructed for the reception of the
mortal remains of Dr. Hiller and of his
"devoted widow, when her time, too, shall
come to be laid away. Mrs. Hiller has had
a man, an artist in his profession, that of
carving, at work upon the coffins for almost
five years. Now the work nearly ap
proaches completion. A mausoleum alone
remains to be erected.
"Sach an edifice," to quote Mrs. Hiller,
"which, when completed, will be one of the
most magnificent mausoleums in the whole
world and incomparably the grandest
structure of the sort ever erected in this
country, will be bnilt next year in the cem
etery in the town of "Winchester."
To a Dispatch correspondent to-day
Mrs. Hiller described the manseolenm.
' THE PEOSPECTIYE EDIFICE.
"I have a let containing several acres in
the Winchester cemetery," said Mrs. Hiller.
"The mausoleum to be bnilt there will be 40
feet square and it will be 40 feet to the top
of the dome, which will be surmounted by
the figure of the Angel of Hope. The ves
tibule of the mausoleum will be 30x30 feet.
The mausoleum will be built of polished
Westerly granite. Caryatides will support
the cornices of the building. Its exterior
and the vestibule will be elaborately car vqd,
all in the solid granite. The outer and
inner doors of the vestibule will be of
bronze. Work,on the mausoleum will be
gin next spring.
"Such a building will require the services
of a janitor, I should think," suggested the
"It will have one. Two men will have
charge of the building always, so long as
the world lasts."
Mrs. Hiller's designs for the mausoleum
provide for a fine interior. Over the main
doorof the vestibule will be the following
inscription, which was prepared by Dr.
Hiller before his death: "The flowers will
fade, the erass will wither, the earth will
perish, but love shnll live forever." In the
center of the mausoleum, beneath the
vaulted ceiling, the two Hiller caskets
will be placed
SIDE BY SIDE
beneath a covering of glass. Two statues
representing angels of mercy will be the
nest most conspicuous adornment of the interior.-.
The walls and floor will be con
structed of, variously colored marble. The
vaulted ceiiirMwill be decorated with gold
and colored maJ&Jes, so as to represent the
hnes of the sunsets

four-toed paws are ranged in an imposing

bear this legend: "These supporters hare
been manufactured from special designs
for Dr. Henry and Frances B. Hiller's
magnificent caskets." Mrs. Hiller described
the caskets, which have been in process of
construction for so long, at her home in
"The material of the caskets, both inner
and outer, is brass and mahogany. The
mahogany is four inches in thickness. The
elaborate carving has all been done in the
solid wood. The caskets are brass lined,
and there are brass panels at the corners
and elsewhere. There are some 30 panels
in all, some large and some small, and thev
are variously illustrated with mythological
designs or inscribed appropriately. There
are splendid brass panels in the tops ot the
inner caskets where the glass plate usually
"Dr. Hiller's casket has three gsld plates,
one of which is illustrated with his photo
graph. There are two gold plates upon the
coffin designed for myself," Mrs. Hiller said
with a pardonable pride. "I do not sup
pose that there have ever been more mag
nificent caskets in the world. I have been
importuned by clergymen, barristers and
many other people of influence to allow the
Eublic to inspect these caskets, which must
e certainly called works of art. The
caskets are now very nearly done, and I
shall probably place them on exhibition in
Boston. At the present time people come
from everywhere to Wilmington to tee the
caskets. We have 100 visitors a day, bnt
we have to refuse them admittance.
"You would be surprised to know what a
mail I have received since last November.
I have had 40 sacks of letters. They have
come from everywhere, and have contained
photographs, poems; etc., and have been
written upon all imanable subjects."
CONCERNING LUMBER PEICES.
Dealers Sax That the Scale of Prices Will
Two prominent members of the wholesale
lumber trade were seen last evening at the
Seventh Avenue Hotel with reference to
the rnmored recent rise in prices. They said
that the prices had risen considerably in the
past two or three months, but thatno further
increase need be looked for at present.
With reference to the Johnstown disaster
having any material effect upon the scale ot
prices one of the gentlemen said: "It is all
nonsense to talk about the amount of timber
required in Johnstown running up theprice;.
I have just returned from Johnstown myself,
and the amount of timber wanted there is
not remarkably large. Every year some
city makes a bigger call on the lumber trade
than usual, but we are prepared for that,
and ,it does not run our prices np. Last year
Cincinnati wanted a big lot of timber; this
year it was Johnstown. The prices will not
go up higher."
A meeting of the retail lumber dealers
was held last night in their rooms, Benshaw
building. It was believed that an attempt
would be made to run up the local prices,
but nothing of the sort resulted.

He will "lay low" until Thomas Callamore

Attorney General Tabor and Controller
Wemple, who are believed to desire this
honor on acconnt. of their relations to the
Assembly chamber ceiling scandal. Mr.
Tabor is 'blamed for not bringing a suit for
conspiracy against John Snaith and Tim
othy J. Sullivan, two of the ceiling con
tractors, and Charles B. Andrews, the
Superintendent ot Tublic Buildings. He
was requested in June last by the Assembly
Ceiling Committee to bring such a suit.
As for Controller Wemple, fault is found
with him because he overpaid John Snaith,
the ceiling contractor, to the amonnt of
714,000. The members of the Democratic
State Committee pulled in unison all day.
It was noticeable that the former Cleveland
men, notably Robert A. Maxwell, D. Cady
Herrick and William H. Murtha, took spe

Fokvis, Miss., August 20. The train
from New Orleans having been delayed,
Benaud was not placed on trial until 2:30
p. M. on the indictment charging him with
aiding and abetting the Sullivan-Kilrain
fight. The State was represented by Dis
trict Attorney -Neville, and the defendant
by Calhoun and Green and Lionel Adams.
Fleas in abatement were tendered by the de
fense, to whioh the State demurred, and the
Court overruled them. Defense then filed a
motion to quash the indictment on the same
grounds and the motion for arrest of judg
ment in the Sullivan case, and furthermore,
because in the indictment no offense is
charged against Benaud.
Judge Calhoun argued the ground that
the indictment charged no offense; that
under the common law there can be no
aider or abettor in a misdemeanor. The
motion was overruled and defense reserved
The grand jury made its final report and
was discharged, after having found 28 true
bills -and examined 83 witnesses. This
carries out the prediction made some days
ago that neither Charles Bich, Captain
Jamieson, Superintendent Tyler nor Gen
eral Manager Carroll, of the Queen and
Cfescent, would be indicted. There is no
evidence to show that the Mississippian
was an aider or an abettor in the prize
fight, and the court had no money to look
up further testimony. There was no evi
dence against any of the Queen and Crescent
people except Ticket Agent Ed. Edwards.
District Attorney Neville says he will
keep up the hunt, and that the grand jury
of the regular term will take np the prize
fight cases. Affidavits against Messrs.
Bich, Carroll, Tyler, Jamiesen, Smith, the
Gilberts and Fat DnflV, ,are pending before
Justice of the.Peace Caterjind.will have
to be disposed of there. Benaud's will be
disposed of to-morrow, and Kilrain's
taken up Thursday morning, if he arrives.

Mrs. Dr. Crossley, one of the consulting
physicians at the Catarrh and Dys
pepsia Institute, 323 Penn ave.
To wives, mothers and daughters:
I wish to have a little talk with you througn
tbe medium of this paper on a subject that
nearly every family in the community Is inter
ested in. viz: diseases peculiar to women.
Fathers and mothers will look upon tbeir
daughters and say: "She Is not well. I don't
see what tho trouble is." Atavery early ace
the color, begins to fade from ber cheeks. She
has a haggard, despondent look. Is very easily
fatigued, nervous and irritable. A few years
pass by and she Is married. The fond hus
band observes bis wife is not well.
She keeps np an incessant complaining
of her ills and pains. The following
are some of her symptoms: Burn
ing pain on top of her head, pain in back of
neck, extending down the spine, severe pain
across the small of her back, dragging weight,
heat and pain across the abdomen, any jar of
the body causing sharp and severe pain. She
cannot stand on her feet but a few moments
at a time. She feels languid and tired, cannot
sleep, has cold bands and feet, flatulence of
stomach and palpitation of tbe heart. She
becomes melancholy, and feels that she
had rather die than live on in such misery.
Her husband hears these complaints with
sympathy, but cannot understand wby
these things exist. As she is unable to
attend to her household duties, he becomes
disheartened, and in his despair he takes
his wife to a physician. She tells him her
symptoms, and he Informs her that it will
be necessary for ber to come to the office to
De treated, iier womanly modesty causes
her to think, for a moment, and she decides to
suffer on, rather than undergo such humlllat
ing treatment So many ladies ask me: "Why
Is it that physicians cannot diagnose the dis
eases of women without an examination, as In
other chronic diseases they hav to depend
upon the symptoms to locate, the, disease?"
Having for years made a special study of tbe
diseases of women, associated with a personal
experience, you need not tell me your symp
toms, for without an examination I can locate
jour aches ana pains, and tell you lost bow
yon feel and what your disease Is. I charge
nothing for consultation or advice. The medi
cines used by the phvslcians of the Catarrh
and Dyspepsia Institute to cure these diseases
are made to suit the peculiarities of each indi
vidual case, and so prepared as to allow the pa
tient to use the treatment herself. We have
hundreds of testimonials on file received from
patients who have been cured to which we
wonld gladly refer. Office hours, 10 A. it. to 4
