THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH; )!FBIiAy, -. AUGUST 30, 1889
P. SEEDY WORK,
xVn'son's Chicks Put Up a Hor-"-
THE HOME TEAM WIN AGAIN
ight 'Out of Nine Buns Made by
THE BOSTONS BEAT NEW YOBK.
lUrry Wright's Delegation Badly Drubbed
by the Senators.
EXERAL BASEBALIiKEWS OP THE DAI
The borne team won a very poorly played
came from the Chicagos yesterday. Almost
every run was made on errors. Boston beat
the New Yorks in a great contest and before
a large crowd. The Senators did some
heavy hitting against the Phillies.
There were two interesting features in yes
terday's game between the Chicks of Anson
and the home team at Recreation Park.
The former played so much like as many
worn out and exhausted pieces of humanity
that a horse attached to an ambulance
wagon appeared on the field evidently wish
ing to convey the poor fellows to some hos
pital. Miller, whether through kindness to
the horse or fiendish feelings toward the
visitors, however, led tbe sympathizing animal
to the rear of tbe bleaching boards again.
That horse, by Instinct or otherwise, knew
that the Cbicagos had no business at all in the
ball field yesterday. Probably never a team of
players put up a worse game than they did.
Even old man Anson's voice was never beard;
lie objected to nothing, but stood with his cap
half over his eyes like a disgruntled old sport
who had been backing the losing side in a dog
flcht. The old chieftain never appeared in
jFittsburg looking more disconsolate than he

.weary of life. Williamson's mistakes alone
were enough to make a man go on the bunt
lot Tascot. That unit of the famous Stone
wall infield was, indeed, a sorrowful sight.
Those who had seen him amid his past glories
couldn't believe that it was the same citizen
who used to nab everything that came within
gunshot of him.
WILUASISOX I2T BAD SHAPE.
Williamson was sorely another man yester-
i day. and baseball patrons who knew him only
'-watched his glaring and costly mistakes with
strong feelings of regret. Pfeffer, too, was
sadly out of form; Indeed, every man in tbe
' -team except Tener, Duffy and Anson took part
jin giving the local players eight of their nine
But nad the game been perfectly played on
both sides the home team would likely have
k shut the visitors ont and the former would have
X. bad one run. Tbe run obtained by tbe visitors
t ' in the ninth was an absolute gift and conse-
qnently tbe two stolen bases credited to Anson
were stolen simply because nobody offered to
put him out. Staley pitched a great game and
had the Chicago champions completely at bis
mercy. Tener also pitched a fine game, and
afforded considerable amusement to the 1,000
spectators by the effective way in which he
pitched in his slow balls. They did not seem
speedy enough to go through a window pane
which looked as big as icebergs looming up in
the mist. The long gentleman from the East
End undoubtedly fooled the home talent. Some
TntJMPED THE BALL HARD,
Indeed, but it invariably went into tbe fielder's
hands. Miller was exceedingly unfortunate in
this respect, as be knocked out a long fly every
time he was at the bat, and he was five times
there. Once or twice, however, extraordinary
fielding spoiled what looked like a two or three
bagger for the midget. Van Haltren, in the
eighth inning, made a remarkable one-handed
catch while running at full speed. When the
ball was caught Miller almost fainted between
first and second base. However, Tener's style
of pitching was extremely puzzling to the local
players. He was apparently afraid of Carroll,
however, as the big slugger was given his base
on balls four times ont of five times at the bat.
Carroll made a bit when he did not get his base
on balls, so that bis batting average for tbe day
was as big4 as could be.
The game was very much devoid of exciting
features. Bun getting was prolific enough as
far the local team was concerned, but they
were secured by the most flagrant errors Dy the
visitors. This method of scoring when it be
gins to get to extremities fails to excite or even
interest the spectators. This was the case yes
terday, and nobody was sorry when the poorly
played game ended.
In the first Inning Hanlon reached first be
cause Ryan began
THE COMEDY OP ERB0R3
by muffing a fly. Eowe's fly. however, went to
Van Haltren, and the long Calif ornian held it.
Hanlon then stole second, aided by Mr. Far
rell'swild throw. BecLley sent out a long fly
to Duffy, and Hanlon got to third on the throw
in. Carroll then got his base on balls, and
Fields thumped out a grounder to Williamson,
which Edward fumbled so badly that Jocko
reached second on tbe error, and Hanlon
scored and Carroll stopped at third. Deacon
White then changed the state of things by
banging out tbe ball where no fielder
could catch it in left field, and Fields scored,
the Deacon going to second. Miller flew out,
endintr the inning. In the third inning, after
two men were out, Carroll again got his base
on balls, and reached seeond on a wild pitch.
Fields made a long single to left field and Car
XX EABNED BUIT.
In the fifth inning Hanlon led off with a sin
gle to center field, and reached third on sacri
fice hits by Rowe and Beckley. Carroll sent
him home by a single to left. In the next in
ning Fields got to first on a wild throw by
Bnrns to Anson, and White made a single.
Miller flew out to Van Haltren, and Dunlap's
sacrifice sent Fields to third and White to sec
ond. Pfeffer next fumbled Staley's grounder and
Fields scored. In the eighth inning Miller
again flew out to Van Haltren, and Dunlap
reached first on another ridiculous fumble by
Williamson. Staley hit safo to center
sending Dunlap to second. Staley was forced
out at second by Hanlon's grounder to ft eff er.
Hanlon started to steal second and Farrell
made a good throw to nab him, but Pfeffer
muffed the throw and DnnlaD scored. A good
single by Rowe rent Hanlon home. In the
ninth inning Van Haltren muffed Becklev's fly
and Jake reached second. Carroll and Fields
eacbgot their base on balls. White struck out
and Beckley scored on Miller's fly to Duffy.
After two men were ont in the first inning
Duffy reached first on a muffed fly by Dunlap.
He stole second and ultimately scored on a
wild throw by Staley. In the ninth inning An
ton led off with a single to right. Staley kept
bis catcher back, and the big captain lazily ran
round to third. Pfeffer fie w out to Miller, and
Williamson hit for a base and Anson walked
in. Farrell and Burns went out in order. Fol

tsrXCIAL TELEGRAM TO Till DISPATCH.
Habtfobd, Conn., August 29. To
day's stirring events among the trotters
served to keep up the interest in the grand
circuit week at Charter Oak Park, and
another large crowd watched the flyers this
afternoon. They saw one of the best con
tested and most exciting races of the season
for the pacing stake with three sensational
miles in the fast trotting class, and even
the small field In the slower trot were
able to make a close fight for the honors.
The weather was pleasanter than ever, and
the wonderful flight of Johnston is the best
evidence that the course has been Improving
each day. Early in tbe season Johnston gave
promise of pacing a mile faster than his record,
but from one cause or another he has been un
able to do so. He has made some great at
tempts. Such as his mile In2.-06 at Cleveland
and that in 2:07 at Poughkeepsie a week ago.
This afternoon he struck a gait between the
two by completing the circuit of this track in
JOHNSTON'S CBKAT EFFORT.
At420 o'clock the gelding warmed up for the
trial. 'His old running companion Father
John was ready to urge him along, and at the
first attempt the champion was going steadily
and was sent on his journey. When
he passed the first quarter 32 sec
onds were gone and up the back
stretch he increased the clip making the half
in 1:03K. There was a possibility of him beat
ing the watch, but the next quarter was only in
32 seconds, so that the odds were now against
tbe horse. Doble, called on Johnston and lifted
htm at every step on the homestretch, at the
distance it looked as if he would succeed the
last quarter in 31 seconds, which was tbe geld
ing's limit A mile in 2:06 Is not an every day oo
currence, and Johnston was lou.1ly cheered.
This is the best time ever made at Charter Oak
Park, St. Jullen's mile In 2:11J4. August Z7.isu,
having stood unbeaten till to-day ana Is still
the fastest trotting here.
An attempt to beat the record for running
team in harness was not successful, the pair of
bang tails driven by Madame Marantette mak
ing the mile in 1:49
AN EXCITING BACK.
The third of the stakes opened by the Asso
ciation for the meeting came first on the pro
gramme. Tbe young Kentucky gelding Budd
Doble had been specially prepared for this, ar d
has been kept in reserve since his victory at
Detroit last month, when he made a record of
2:15 and defeated a good field. Among his
opponents to day were such fleet sidewheelers
as Lilian, 2J Hal Pointer, 2:land several
others that have done creditable things along
the line. When Lilian rushed away and took
the first heat, while Budd Doble made a break
and was driven an easy mile, confidence in him
wa' not lessened, and even when Minnie P
captured the next heat, he still sold as the
choice. Tbe third heat found the Kentuckian
in the lead from the start, and then bis stock
went up at once. After Minnie P had tried
conclusions with him In the fourth mile, and
he bad not only vanquished her, but repeated
his former record of 2.15 not even tbe short
end buyers cared to bet against him. Just as
victory seemed assured, the redoubtable Hal
Pointer made one of his tremendous finishes
and nailed tbe favorite in the last lew yards.
Hal Pointer won the next two heats easily.

SORRY EOR DEMPSEY.
New York Sport Monro About the Defeat
of tbe Nonpareil Opinions Regard
ing tbe Defeat Dempsey's
Fast Living Blamed.
Nkw York. August 29. Local fighters and
thousands who love to see agood boxing match
were dazed when they read yesterday morning
of the defeat of Japk Dempsey by La Blanche.
They did not want to believe it. They had felt
that Jack had such an easy walk-over there
must be some mistake. But there it was Jack
knocked out In the thirty-second round, and a
clean knock out at that.
Dempsey is so well-known in New York and
so well liked by all sporting men tbe result of
the fight seemed to be on everybody's tongue
where sporting men usually meet. Many ex
cuses were offered for .Jack's defeat, and,
doubtless, those who referred to the somewbat
easy life he has been living for a long time past
as the cause, hit the mark. They knew that
the "Marine" had once been whipped by
Dempsey, though it was with skin gloves.
under the London prize ring rules, and they
were positive that Dempsey, because of this
fact, must have been too confident. The re
port of the fight seems to bear out this opinion.
Excuses, though fully appreciated by the
friends of the loser, would not change the
result, and they began to cast about for reasons
why the "Marine" should be so much better
man ne usea to De. They admitted that tbe
Queensberrv rules suited La Blanche better
than those of old style, and they were of the
belief that his enforced confinement In a Buffa
lo Jail had done him great physical good. There
is not any doubt of the latter. It must have
made a new man of him and this Dempsey must
Men who had seen Jack in all his principal
encounters and knew his feelings in the matter
of continuing the middle-weight championship
of America, were sure It would almost break
bis heart. Yet they also knew and were willing
to bet that he would not let the grass grow
under his fee: before La Blanche again hears
There were others who regretted that Demp
sey was ever led Into tbe fight. He had made
his reputation and was unbeaten. The number
ot bis victories rolled up so amazingly large
nothing else that he could do would Increase
his fame as a pugilist. Under these circum
stances it was foolish for him to again fight,
and particularly as he was not in need of
money, his lucrative position as teacher in San
Francisco being enough to support him in
"That's tho way with old fighters, however,"
said an old ringster. "They are never satisfied,
and believe that age and fast living can't hurt
them. It is a mistake, but a common one.
When will such fellows ever have any sensuT"
in me uznc oi uempseys aeieat people will
now think that Dempsey's challenges to Mit
chell were a mistake. Everybody knows of
Mitchell's cleverness, his gameness, his shrewd
ness and that he can fight 20 pounds heavier

It was decided yesterday that all the per

Chicago, August 29. Judge McCon

"Woodruff. He said that in view of 'Wood

All the defendants then took exception to

in which to file bills of exception. The
attorneys for the 'various defendants then
expressed themselves as ready to proceed
with the trial. The following is Judge Mc
Gentlemen, in disnosln? of this motion I
shall not attempt to go Into any argument
whatever; that Is, into any extended argument
as to the grounds of my decision, but shall sim
ply content myself with making tbe decision
and stato in a general way why I do it. The
STATE OF THE CASE
is substantially this: Daniel Coughlin, Martin
Burke. Frank J. Woodruff, alias Black. John
F. Beggs, Patrick O'Sulliran, johri Kunze and
Patrick Cooney are jointly Indicted for the
murder of Patrick H. Cronin. All of them,
except Cooney, are in court and have entered
pleas of not guilty. Daniel Coueblin moves for
a separate trial, asking that his case may be sev
ered from all other defendants, Martin Burke
and Frank F. Woodruff each make a similar
motion. Patrick O'Sullivan enters two mo
tions, one that he be accorded a trial separate
from the defendants Burke and Coughlin. and
tho other that his trial may be severed from
that of Woodruff.
These several motions are supported by affi
davits substantially containing, as conceded by
the State's Attorney, the evidence which was
tendered the grand jury, and upon which that
body bases tbe indictments. The form of the
indictment and particularly the character of
tbe evidence relied upon by the State indicate
that several of tbe defendants can bo con
victed only upon the successful establishment
of a conspiracy to murder Dr. Cronin and also
of the further fact that they were members of
that conspiracy. These defendants therefore
can in no respect be injured or prejudiced by
evidence tending to show the complicity of
others In the alleged murder, unless it shall be
established, first that there was a conspiracy
and second, that they and the others were
united in that conspiracy.
NO UNDUE PREJUDICE.
The Judge now presiding cannot presume
that improper evidence will be admitted at the
trial, nor can he presume that the trial 1udge
will not take every precuatlon wheu the case is
finally submitted to tbe jury.that no defendant
shall be unduly prejudiced by any evidence
which-during the trial shall be admitted as
against.some of the defendants which may not
be competent as to all the others. I must also
presume that the trial Judge will not even per
mit the jury to speculate upon the truth or
innocence of a defendant, unless he believes
that there is sufficient competent evidence
against mm lo sustain a conviction.
These considerations are satisfactory to me
in denying a severance of trial so far as any
grounds for separate trials are based upon the
evidence of facts prior to the time of the mur
der and to all .matters subsequent thereto, ex
cept only the alleged confessions of Woodruff.
I am unable to see now the other defendants
can be tried with him without tbe greatest em
barrassment. In his series of confessions he
has in one way and another implicated nearly
all the defendants. His confessions are com
petent evidence against him. and almost neces
sarily when he Is sitting in the dock with them
would be fatally injurious to tbe others. The
prisoners are entitled to a fair trial associated
witn wooarun iney cannot nave n.
I am persuaded that authority, reason and
simple justice require that tbe other defendants
should be tried separately from Woodruff.
THE JUDGE'S DECISION.
The motion, therefore, wbicb I shall sustain,
will be the motion of O'Sullivan for a trial
separate from that of Woodruff. Necessarily
that will lead to the sustaining of the motion of
Woodruff for a separate trial, although it does
not deserve the consideration tbe other appli
cations do. The other motions stand denied.
The decision was a surprise and for a few
seconds after its gjelivery a peculiar quiet
pervaded the courtroom and people in
stinctively looked around to see who would
first break the silence and what was to
,Mr. ForrestTventually rose and asked for
an exception to the decision, which was
Jiromptly granted, and the order was formu
ated. The court then adjourned until to

A Fowl Starves Herself to Death Because

"It's a story," said Tom, as he blew the
tobacco smoke from his pipe, "about a
duck thatdied of a broken heart. My wife
will vouch for its truthfulness. "We had a
hen once that we got to sit on some duck

duck. "We raised that duck, and it got so
tame that it used to follow .my wife and I
wherever we went. Finally, one day, I
thought I would get her a mate, and so I
bought a drake and took it home with me.
It didn't take long for the duck and the
drake to get acquainted, and before many
days they were fast friends. They were
constantly together, and it was really quite
touching to see their affectionate devotion
to one another. Well, one day in Novem

and low for him, but he was nowhere to be
"From the day of his disappearance the
duck began to act strangely. She no longer
followed us around, but seated herselfon tbe
doorstep at the back of the house and never
stirred from the spot. "We gave her corn
and water, hut she refused to eat or drink.
You may not believe it, but I saw bit scald

actual'fact, and my wife will tell you the
same thing. This continued for four days
and nights, when one morning my wife on
going out into theard found the dead body
of the duck lying on the doorstep."
"And what became of the drake?" asked
one of the interested listeners.
"We found him lying dead under the
railroad platlorm," said Mr. Hawkins.

seized. The schooner was ordered
to Sitka, hut no prize crew placed

yesterday ostensibly on a trip up the coast
to xefit, but it is said that she is really off on
a sealing cruise into Behring Sea, where the
owners believe they have a legal right to
hunt seal. This action shows what the
popular feeling is .here in regard to the
United States jurisdiction in Behring Sea,
and her power of her policy to enforce it.
"The report (I) that the Vice Consul
Marvin, of Victoria, is interested in the
seized sealing schooners is not tbe case. E.
E. Marvin, shipchandler and part owner
of the Sapphire, and Vice Consul Marvin
are different persons. Frank, who has fig

Diamond, was' a citizen of the United
States, but was also a partner with J. Gutt

subject and who was lost with all
on board another schooner in the
spring ot 1888. After Guttman's death

is now her registered owner. He is a Brit

"WRECKED BI THE TIDE.
A Dock and a Big Ballding oa
Island Swept Away.
rsrxciAi. TxxiOBAis to tux disp ATCir.j
New Yobk, August 29. Forty-five feet
of solid masonry, a dock and a portion of
a building 100x150. feet, situated on the ex
treme easterly end of Barren Island,
the property of tbe Barren Island
Oil and Guano Company were washed away
by the high tide on Tuesday morning. The
wrecked building contained 40 carboys of
acid, some hydraulic presses and an
engine, which now lie buried in
about 45 feet of water. A portion of the de
molished structure still overhangs the water.
On Monday there was a space the width of a
city block between the boiler house and high
tide mark. Now the water sweeps over this
with ample depth to float an ocean steamer.
The water began its encroachments with
the first high tide on Monday. When
the tide was on the ebb the portion
of the island washed away surged up and
down as if a thousand boiling springs had
suddenly burst up beneath it. The
water spurted out of every crack
and crevice. At 5 A. m. Tuesday,
when the tide had again reached its height,
there was a crash, and 15 minutes after the
water rolled over the place where the
building and dock had stood. The
guano company's loss will amount to $10,
000. The total loss cansed bv the
washout will exceed $20,00Q. Profiting
by previous experiences, the guano com
pany had everything movable taken to a
place of safety. The washout was looked
for, and no work had been done in the build

QUEER FACTS ABOBT FIGS.
A Frnlt That Is Entirely Different From Any
Other That Grows.
Kern County (Cal.) Calirornlan.i
While musing upon the many wonderful
products oi nature, how many stop to con
sider the peculiarities of the fig? It is ut
terly unlike any other fruit, in that it has no
blossom. Every other fruit heralds its
coming and gives its promise with a flower.
And then most certainly the fig must have
lungs or breathing places, for from the little
button at the end there are minute ducts or
air spaces which run right through the frnit
and clear into the stem. If, in drying, the
fig is not placed as it grew on the tree, the
frnit sours and molds.
It would seem that these air vessels must
be placed so as to exhale while the fig is
drying, even as they inhale while it is
growing. The fruit does not hang from the
tree, bnt inclines upward, held by the stem,
and this bntton or mouth opens toward the
sun. If not so placed when being dried the.
bntton is shaded and the fruit then spoils.
Altogether the fig is one of the most re
markable of all nature's products.

KO CROSS-EYED BALL FLAYERS.
Men Willi Defective Vision Not Expert a
the Great National Game.
William Patterson in Globe Democrat.
Cross-eyed men and one-eyed men can often
see quits' as well as people in whose eyes there
is no defect, and they get along In most kinds of
business qultoii well as tbe sound-eyed
men, but there is.no chance for them on the
ball field. I 'never yet saw a cross-eyed man
play good ball, and 1 never saw a one-eyed man
even attempt to do It.
Another thing I've often noticed about ball
players is this: -Though tbere are many more
brunettes than blondes, the majority of ball
players are blondes ;of a pronounced type. I
haven't the least kltsv why It U.
