tCrZCIAI. TBLIOUAM TO TOT DISPATCH.
CniCAGO, August 23. Nobody saw any
worms or chinch bugs on the game between
Chicago and Pittsburg to-day. It was one
of the prettiest contests at the Congress
street grounds this season, and it had a tail
so large that it almost flung Anson out of
the yard with one swash. Hutchinson and
Scaley pitched remarkable ball, but the
latter did not receive good support, the
l&rge, fat gentleman in the left field for the
visitors being responsible for one ot
Chicago's rnns. This same gentleman
made another seemingly disastrous error,
but the rest of his colleagues managed to
retrieve what had been" lost, and thereby
held the score down to small figures. The
fatnocs stonewall infield of the home team
played with the precision and dash of former
days. For the visilois
MTTX.E JACK FIELDS -WOW
much applause by his excellent work behind
the bat. Big Fred Carroll made three out
rageous errors in the first inning. If any more
errors or worse errors were ever made in a
single inning by one player, the books fail to
record the performance. Can oil muffed Van
Haltren's easy fly, fell over Anson's short
single and then came pretty nearly banting the
ball into the grand stand in an effort to catch
Van Haltren at the plate.
In the second, thitd and fourth innings Chi
cagos went ont in the order in which they went
to bat. In the fifth, Williamson and Farrell
pounded out singles, bat stupid base running
and somo clever work by the Fennsylvanlans'
inflold kept tbem from scoring. Senator Ran
opened the sixth with a long high drive over
the Congress street wall for a home run after
'Williamson bad struck ont in the sixth. Far
rell hit safely, hat was doubled up with Barns
a. moment later on the latter's sharp grounder
HUTCH INSOJT I!f FOBM.
In the eighth the Cliicagos did not get a man
past first base. Hutchinson's command over
the ball was too much tor the visitors. They
sawed away with great desperation but rarely
succeeded in placing a hit. Rowe hit safely in
the first Inning and Carroll in the third, but
neither got farther than first bass. After
Beckley had been retired In the fourth. Fields
cracked a liner to left, and on an error by
ViIliamson, who let Hanlon's hot grounder
gallop between hi legs, the backstop then
went to third, then Hutchinson made a wild
pitch aud Fields started for home. He was
caught at the plate on a close decision. The
visitors went out in order in the fifth. Carroll
opened the sixth on a safe hit, but the remark
able work of Pfeffer, Williamson and Burns
prevented any runs, although the hitting at the
infield by Rowe, Beckley aud Fields was ter
rific. Not one of the Fennsylvanlans reached
first base in the seventh and eichth Innings.
Everybody now thought that the visitors
would be shut ont,and many spectators started
to leave the grounds as the Pittsbnrgs came in
to take their last crack of the balL Beckley
galloped over the sward, and in a voice which
seemed to come out of his boots and roll in
great billows into the stands, announced that
he was going to get some runs. Rowe was first
at the bat. He
MADE A BASE HIT.
Then Beckley, true to his word, smashed a
furious grounder to right, which Pfeffer beat
down in a most miraculous way with one band.
There were now two men on bases and nobody
out. Fields hit sharnly to Barns, who ;atii;ht
Beckley at second. In the meantime Row e bad
reached third. Hanlon drove a blistering
grounder to Williamson, fumbled it for an in
stant ami then shot it to Pfeffer in time to nip
Fields. Rnwe clattered over the plate on the
play. Hanlon was on first when Sunday
hoisted the hall away out into the infield for
two bases. Then began a desperate run for the
tying score. Both runners ran desperately but
Hanlor. made a fatal error when he stopped on
third. Had he kept right on he conld have
scored easily. When Emperor William Kuehne
came to bat be found Hanlon on third, Sunday
on second and the crowd in a. cold sweat.
Hutchinson got two strikes on the German
hen the latter gave the ball a hideous swipe
in the face. A groan arose from the stands.
It looked as though the ball was going to the
carriages. Van Haltren started after the ball
on a keen run and by a short leap into the air
squeezed it to his breast. The crowd cave a
wild yell of exultation and then passed out into
the street. Score:

ingtbebig hitters from Canton four hits be
sides striking out seven of their best hitters.
There was a good crowd present and much
interest was taken in tbe game, and some
great work was done by both, sides. The same

More than 400 of Pittsbnrg' citizens went to
Glen wood yesterday en route of the Mayflower.
Tbe attraction was a baseball game by the
Dockstader Minstrels. The members of the
teams played in costnme, and the extraordinary
attitudes and activity of the minstrel on turf
were really wonderfully amusing. Tbe signs of
Pitcher Davis were good enough for Ewing to
copy, and disorderly parties like Baltimore and
Cincinnati should bare officers with them like
Jas. Mars. However, the came was called on
account of darkness just when the whole party
were fighting about their respective shares of
a melon that a visitor bad donated.

rsrXCIAL TU.EOBAM TO TUX DISFATCn.l
McKeesport, Angust;23. John Teemer to
day received a very excellent offer from
Louisville, Ky for the proposed race between
himself and Gaudaur. and also big money
offers from several other places, and refused
all of tbem. "Simply because the race is going
to be rowed at McKeesport," said Teemer. He
would not row it elsewhere, and no matter
what offers are made will not take the race
away from Pittsbnrg. Teemer has completed
all arrangements that he can look after for the
race and is training like a Trojan with great
satisfaction, thanks to Evan Hughes, bis
trainer, who has the joke on Teemer. who,
when speaking of him to your correspondent,
called him Evan Davis. Tbe Louisville offer
was a very reasonable one for the great race,
and knowing as well as he does what a terrible
crowd tbe raco would draw there, Teemer
prefer to row the race near Pittsburg, and
knows that if he rows Gaudaur again that it
will be compulsory to row in water more public
than tbe beautiful Monongahela, which is
almost hidden on one side by bills and on the
other by manufactures plants. The oarsmifh
is rowing well, and shows up very satisfactory
in his trials, much more so than ever before,
and. will give Gaudaur a terrible tussle Sep.
tember 13. W. A. Nicker, chief salesman ot
A. Sbnman t Co tbe largest wholesale mer
chants of Boston, a warm friend of Teenier,
will arrive here September 1 and will remain
until after tbe race. He will look after
Teemer' interests and attend to all prelimi
nary arrangements about the course, etc., so as
to allow Teemer to do nothing bnt train for tbe
race. Gaudaur will arrive with Hamm and the
boat September 1 also.

stallion, Axtell, (trotted a mile in 2:14, and
another 3-year-old, the bay stallion Aller
ton, in the third heat of a bruising race,
made the circuit of the traok in 2:1 Besides
these events the race for the 221 class was very
prettily contested, and required six heats to
Axtell's mfie In 2:14 clips three-quarters of a
second from his former record of 2:14, not
withstandirg the fact that even that record
was betterthan the best previous performance
of either a, 3-year-old or a 4-year-old. It is also
within three-quarters of a second ot Patron's
2:13i, which stand as the best record for a
stallion of any age.
Tbe circumstances under which this record
was made are likely to give rise to endless dis
cussion as to whether it was a record in a race
or against time. Axtell and Earl McGregor
were on the card of the day as starters in the
stallion stake and the card also announced
that Axtell would go to beat his own record.
The first beat was trotted under the usual con
ditions ot a race, and served merely as a warmer,
being done in 2:19.
Id the next heat, that in which the record
was made, distance was waived, and Axtell

age him from the upper tarn to the finish. Earl
McGregor being far behind and cutting no
figure in it. It should be said -that the beat
was trotted squarely and wlthont a skip to
within about 7o feet of tbe wire, when, owing to
bad judgment in the handling of the runner,
the little stallion was started into a run and
galloped under the wire. Whether or not he
gained by the break Is an open question. Both
Axtell and Allerton are owned by a lucky
youna man, C. W. Williams, ot Independence,
la. Before Axtell went his fast mile, Colonel
John W. Uonley approached Mr. Williams and
askedihim to put a price on the animal. Mr.
Williams replied that be was not prepared to
name k price.
"Will you take $100,000 for him r" said Con
"If Ilwere offered $100,000 for him a positive
offer,"replied Mr. Williams, "I would consider
'Think the matter over," were Colonel Con
ley's parting words, "and if you decide to take
that amount let me know."
Colot el Uonley declines to give tbe name of
the pri icipalwhom he represents in these nego
