. I 5 : 6 11 REVIEW OF SPORTS leading Features of the Pres ent Base Ball Season. THE CHANGES SUGGESTED. .Reasons Why the Double Umpire System May be Adopted. TEE DEHPSET-LE BLANCHE FIGHT. Opinions Ee?arding the Unexpected Defeat of the Nonpareil. A FEW TYOKDS OK O'CONNOR AND SEAELE The fact that the local ball club will start on its last trip East to-day reminds us that the baseball season of 1889 is fast nearing its close. It just seems a few days since Anson and his team opened up the season here, and yet many very important events have happened In the baseball world since then. Of coarse there is yet plenty of time . for even more important things to happen before the season closes. However, so far the season will be remembered for one or two features that have made it prominent. None of us will forget the very wonderful fight that a young club like Cleveland has made from the first day that the season commenced; none of us will forget the very close and exciting struggles there have up to now been going on for positions right from sixth place to the top of the list. These are two features tbat will undoubtedly attract national atten tion, bat what is of more interest to the citi zens of this locality is tbe part Pittsburg's club has played. There is yet hope for that club to take a very creditable place, but qertalnly chances are against it However, it may be safe to say that this has been the most eventful sea son in the history of the local club. When everything is considered one cannot bntfeel surprised at the club's standing so well to-day as it does, l'robably no team of a leadinz kind has had more difficulties to contend with than the Pittsburg team has had this season. Some of these difficulties may to some extent have been self imposed, and this would suggest to us that they ought to teach a lesson as to prevent ing a repetition next season. There is no deny ing the fact that many of the players were far from being in good condition when the season opened. Circumstances have proven tbat one of the most important things in aball team is to have its members in good form. l'robably one of tbe best illustrations of the truth of this statement Is the present condition and work of Ed Williamson. An extraordinary transformation has tahen place in the work of that once brilliant performer since last season. The cause is easily found. He is considerably too big and no more fit to play ball than to run a 20-mile race. True his leg is yet weak to some extent, but when a ball comes in front of him be cannot stoon to get it. Williamson's case then shows conclusively that every man ager and omcial of a team should by all means see to the condition of the players before the season starts. There are numerous methods of conditioning men and also of testing whether or not they are in good condition. Perhaps it would not be a bad idea to keep every player, who does not report in condition, suspended until he is all right Some General Features. The season so far has taught us some general lessons. One is that the donble umpire system must sooner or later be uniformly adopted. Probably one of the best reasons for this is the fact that in all tbe most vital contests Presi dent Young details two umpires to them. Bos ton and New York, and even Boston and Phila delphia, have had this system to guide them. Surely this means that in tbe opinion of the League President two umpires are more relia ble than one. If this is so, why should there cot be two at every League game. Every game Is of importance to the teams directly in terested. A team fighting for sixth, fifth or fourth place has jut as much right to receive all the protection that is afforded to a club righting for first place. I am inclined to think that the League will adopt the donble umpire system next season. So far one of tbe strongest arguments urged against itsadoption has been its expense. I submit that this is hardly worth tbe name of an argument The expense is almost infinitesimal when :t is scat tered among all the eight clubs of the League. Another impottant feature that has been made prominent during the season has been the classification rule. That rule has met with vcrv powerful and very intelligent opposition, audi venture to say tbat there will be some modification of it next season. The Great Struggle. People who like to see neck and neck races and every muscle and device used by contest ants to get into first place, certainly have had their hearts' fill in the League pennant race. Nobody could reasonably wish for a better struggle than Boston and New York are making for first place. Each club is straining itself to the greatest possible limitand all America seems to be brimful of excitement over the keen contest Boston still holds command, but tbe Giants are pressing so closely that we may set it down as a case of wbo cracks first" Although New York is slightly behind I am still inclined to favor her chances, providing she makes no more bad breaks. Bostons' chances almost en tirely depend on Clarkson, and if he can hold out at tbe present gait until tbe end of the sea son he will be cine of the most wonderful pitchers the profession has seen. The chance; are against turn, however, because the club will be away from home during tbe last two weeks of the season, and the Western teams are all in verv good condition. On tbe other hand New York has two good pitchers who are first class, and for a third Crane is a very formid able man. Badbourne has not shown himself -as reliable as either Crane or Welch and this increases t n e chances of New York. Of late however. New York's defeats have almost been as much the result of poor fielding and batting as ineffective pitching. Considering the abili ties of the New York's players some of the late games have been ridiculous.- If they could once get into their excellent line of playing and keep there, I really don't see how Boston or any other team can beattbem. Another in teresting question is: Will Chicago iinish ahead of Philadelphia? It looks as if the answer would be in the affirmative, because Philadel phia, like other Eastern clubs, will finish tbe season away from home. However, the East ern trip of tbe Western clubs will almost settle the question. It also seems as if Pittsburg was destined to overhaul Cleveland. The lat ter, although losing, is fighting like a game ter rier. No team has a picnic with the Babies, and if Pittsburg gets ahead of them it will have to be by good playing. Tbe Dempsey-Mnrine Bntllp. The great sporting event of the week has been tbe fight between Jack Dempsey and George Le Blanche, tbe Marine. I venture to say that almost everybody Interested in sport ing matters at all took an interest in that con test Probably no pugilist of modern tunes is better known and has a larger following than Dempsey. His engagements with variety shows have taken him into almost evoy city in America, and his remarkable career as a pugi- list as far as victories were concerned, all tended to make him a lion of tbe age. This great popularity caused many thousands to be interested in the battle. However, while so many were interested in the affair becanse of Dempsey's popularity the result was looked upon as a foregone conclusion. Few people could even dream of Dempsey being beaten, and so this tended to tame all excitement rela tive to the fight Tbe hero of SO fights, how ever, was vanquished, and then everybody be came astounded. The surprise was a great one and I dare say that the majority of people have not gotten over it yet Among many thousands more I was surprised, and I am frank enough to say tbat I thought Dempsey was able to de feat a man like -the Marine." However, read ers of The Dispatch have for a longtime been well aware of my opinion nf Dempsey as an effective pugilist When he was in this city and when he had his affair with McCaffrey I at come length contended tbat Dempsey was an overrated man. I don't think that anybody who knows anything about time fighting will run Le Blanche first class, lie is a plucky fel low and can take wbat the sporting fraternity calls "bis gruel" as good as anybody, but when in the presence of. a clever man who can hit hard Le Blanche would soon get gruel enough to drown film. Feature of tbe Fight. Numerous theories have been advanced re garding how Le Blanche managed to defeat Dempeey. Tbe prevailing notion seems to be that a chance blow did it Dempsey is emphat ically of this opinion, and, therefore, every member of his large following may be expected to repeat the same opinion. Dempsey states that he was making a waiting fight of it, and that 'he had the Marine almost settled. We shall see that this is scarcely correct He fur ther states tbat he saw the fatal blow coming, and couldn't escape it On the other hand, Le Blanche claims that it was no chance blow at all. He states that he knew bow he had Dempey. and that he, Le Blanche, was as strong as ever, and was only waiting an oppor tunity to get home a blow such as he delivered. Here are the two statements in brief, and whicn one are wo to believer Ihavealwajs been exceedingly cautious in coming to a "chance-blow" conclusion. Of course 1 am aware that chance blows have turned tbe tide in tbe most unexpected manner. One of tbe most notable was tbat of Tom King when he knocked Mace out But that was a real chance blow, because Mace's acci dentally slipping down aided King's terrific swing to get home more than anything else; in fact if Mace hadnot slipped the blow would not have hit him at all. The facts of the Dempsey-Marine affair are not so plain. I am firmly convlncedthat taking Le Blanche's rushing tactics into consideration, he was on the look but forsuch a blow from start to finish. I am further of opinion that Dempsey's momen tary carelessness gave Le Blanche that oppor tunity, vhjch he speedily availed himself or. That was almost the only effective blow struck during the entire battle, and if Dempsey could have commanded tbe hitting power possessed by Le Blanche, it is sale to say tbat the latter wonld have been floored long ere the thirty second round was reached. Dempsey's great defect is. nis weak bitting. This, in my esti mation, will keep him flora ranking among tbe best men of his weight who have been cham pions. His modern style of boxing may have something to do with this, bnt there is not space to argue that at present That he is one of the weakest hitters who have been cham pions there seems to be no doubt The accounts ot tne battle ten us aDout nis -rawing uions on Le Blanche's neck, face and body. Tbe showers of blows evidently had little effect because Le Blanche bad evidently as much strength in the thirty-second round as he had at any time of the fight Undoubtedly had the fight been for points Dempsey would have been the easiest of winners. He at least gave the Ma rine 100 per cent interest for every blow re ceived, but tbe Marine was playing a game,and that was one of rushing. Had Dempsey been an effective pugilist this very game of rushing ought to have helped him to soon knock the wind ont of the rnsber. Dozens of middle weights have lived who would have finished Le Blanche in short order, and yet time and time again we have been told that Dempsey was the 'greatest pugilist of his weight tnat ever lived." Nonsensel His record cannot in any way compare with that of Tom Belcher, who lived in even snch a remote time as the early part of this century. But when Dempsey conld not finish Le Blanche in 32 three-minute rounds, what in tbe name of common sense would he have done had Mitchell been in front of him? He aspired to fight Mitchell, and it would ha e been better for him and his reputa tion to hare been beaten by the Englishman than by a man liEe Le Blanche. Certainly the rules favored the latter, and had tbe latter been under prize ring rules the result would probablj have been different Dempsey is not a Sullivan, and, therefore, ought on all pos sible occasions to fight under prize ring rules. Will They Fight Again I am thoroughly of opinion that Demp sey would undergo any ordeal to fight Le Blanche again. Nobody knows the great loss that defeat has entailed upon him better than Dempsey himself. Before the fight he had everything to lose: now he has everything to gain. If Le Blanche is willing there certainly will be another battle, and if there is and both men are in good condition I think I shall again stand pat on Dempsey. I am anxious to be lieve that he is a superior man to Le Blanche; if he is not he has been sailing under false colors for a long time. But it is a question as to whether or not Le Blanche will be in a hurry to fight again. He is now what may be termed "the boss," and he probably will take his own time in arranging another contest He is now in a position to do the show the business jnst as profitably as did Dempsey. During the fall and winter Le Blanche can be the "lion of the day" and haul 'in the shekels. If be is a shrewd business man he'll do this. Dempsey probably never made a greater mistake in his life than meeting Le Blanche the second time. He, Dempsey, had won all tbe glory possible in his class, and conld reasonabl) have retired from the arena. He is now a defeated man, and he will discover that his loss will be much more than the few thousand dollars offered bv the California club. But defeat may teach Dempsey a lesson. It may prompt him to take more care of him self m future, that is, if he intends to fight again. O'Connor and Senile. Before two Sundays pais away we shall know whetberjor not the Australians.orthe Canadians have the champion sculler of the world. On the 6th O'Connor and Searle will row their race on tbe Thames, England. The event is creating the greatest possible interest in this country, Australia, Canada and England. So far, when writing about this race, I have with held any definite opinion as to the result Now tbat the race is so close at hand the winner seems as difficult to pick as ever. During the last few days advices from England state that O'Connor bad rowed a trial over tbe champion ship course, beating all previous recorus. Now. while it may be true that he has rowed the four miles and three fnrlongs in 22 minutes, 16 seconds, it does not prove that he is tbe best man who ever rowed over the course. The time test on the Thames Is one of the most misleading guides tbat any man can follow, I can easily prove tills. For a time the "best on record" on the Thames nu held by George Tarryer, but he was easily beaten Sn a match by llliam Elliott when the latter was not at Ills best Americans know what Klliott was at his best lie was a third rate man here. Charles Brljthtwell took the record mark from Tarry ei, and covered the conrse two or three seconds slower than O'Connor is reported to have done. But Brlghtwell was at best only a second rate sculler compared with a man like Bu bcar. Itlsafact thcrelore, that two Of the best records made on the Thames course were made by scullers who were away behind Ten Eyck, Hos mer, Bubear, Elliott and men of that class. So much for the time test It must be remembered that the Thames ebbs and flows and that the races are rowed when the tide is flowing, bomctlmei the current is exceedingly strong, and at otber times it is comparatively slow. This accounts for inferior men making good records. However, there is no doubt In my mind bat what O'Connor Is rowlog In great form. Ills -record at any rate shows that he has speed, and I wilt be disappointed lrbe does not out-stay hearle. The latter Is, un doubtedly, a speedy rower, but O'Connor's mile and a half at ashlngton last year proves that he also has speed of a nrst-class kind. Beside I am fully convinced that the party who has O'Connor know tbat thev have a better sculler than ever Hanlan was, and Hanlan. when at his best was a wonder. With these facts in view, I am forced to the conclusion that O'Connor will defeat bearle on the 6th. The betting will be heavy and the odds lively on Searle because of the large amount of money there is behind htm. flanlan to the Front. Banian is again eater to get into harness before the snow flies. Hchas declared his willingness to row the winner of the Teemer-Gaudanr race, and doubtless the Canadian will be accommodat ed. Certainly, whether Teemer defeats Gaudaur or not. he will row Banian, and It Is safe to say tbat Gaudaur will be just as ready to tackle the veteran. I don't see how Hanlan could manage to defeat 1 eemer, and if Gaudaur Is the lattcr's superior he can certainly beat Hanlan. However, the result of the Tecmcr-Gaudaur race will give ns to understand more definitely about the mat ter. Gaudaur, accompanied by Hainm, will be seen on the JMcliecsport course this week, and presume cpeculatlon will at once com mence on tbe race. It promises to be an exciting affair and both rowers will llkely.be in excellent condition. The course will be new to Gaudaur, but eight or ten days' rowing over It ought to give him a clear Idea about it Next week I shall have something d-finite to say about It. At present the prospects are for a ver large crowd. There will be every accommodation for those who want to seethe race from start to finish, as plenty of steamers have been chartered. Increase of Runners. I don't think there Is anything more surprising In the sporting world than the way in which the number of running horses and running races have Increased during the last four or five years. The development or this wealthy and exciting sport has been wonderful. No better proof of this statement Is needed than a glance at the"Monthly Turf Guide" of Goodwin Bros. The last num ber was just as Urge as tbat firm's Annual In 16S4 I may mention at tbls Juncture that the Monthly Guide has heretofore been sold at So cents per copy, and any man with common sense, looking at the last number, with its 500 pages, must know that it cannot he published at that figure. Goodwin Bros, write me tbat they have been compelled to increase the price of their monthly because of its g.'jwlng size. Nobody will wonder at this, because where there was only one horse and one race to tell about a few years ago, now tberr are dozens. The Guide must keep pace with the aeveloplng sport. All tbis proves that running races are fast becoming as popular in America as in any other country. FsixaLx. Fixed tbe Date. BY CABLE TO THE DISFATCH.1 Loxoosr, August 3L Copyright Septem ber Ik about 2 o'clock, has been fixed for the race between Scullers O'Connor and Searle. But very little interest is shown at present out side of the circle of rowing men. who are al ways on the towing path when a good race is in preparation. Both men are well, and both are doing good practice, but odds are in favor of Searle, probably from tbe fact that be bas beaten Beach, the late champion. All amateur critics, however, are loud in their praise of O'Connor's magnificent style, and his victory would bo popular. Toronto Won. BraGETTSTOWS. August 8L The Toronto club defeated the Burgettstown club today on ine latter a grounds, ncore, .u. lo.u, THE- GOTTHEWQSSTOFIT. The Home Team Fails to Win One of the Two. A THIRTEEN-INNLNG TIE GAME. Stalej Eapped Hard and'Galrin EelieTea Sowders With Bad .Results. BOSTON AND NEW 10EK PLAI A TIE. General Baseball Sews of the Day Besnlts of Associa tion Garnet There were two games between the home team and the Chicagos yesterday. The vis itors won one, and the other, which lasted 13 innings, was a tie. New York and Bos ton also played a tie. Columbus again beat St Louis, which puts Brooklyn almost even with the Association champions. The 3,500 people who went to Becreation Park yesterday afternoon certainly had their money's worth as far as a good supply of ball playing. Had the twilight 'not in terfered the argument between old man Anson's delegation and the home talent might have been going on yet. About five hours of solid playing is without doubt sufficient return for even the high prices of the League. No cranks of any degree can well kick at that "Well, that's whaPHhere was yesterday afternoon, and one of the en counters had to be declared a draw at that Beside the quantity there was lots of fun, but the latter was somewhat marred by the fact that the first game was easily won by the visitors, and they tied the second when the odds were at least S or 6 to 1 against them. The majority of the people present went to the game fully convinced that the home play ers would take both games, and it sounded like treason to venture the opinion that they would get none. However, not a game was won. Many people came away from the grounds thinking it lucky that both hid not been lost There maybe a little in the fact that the re sults were not as bad as they might have been. But really the home team should have won one game. Of course there was no show at all to get the first, as Staley was just the kind of gentleman tbe Chicagos were looking for. The second game, however, was like one of those thines that one thinks he has safely locked in his bureau and it gets through tbe keyhole. The game certainly looked as safe as wheat in the mill even at the last inningLbut, alas! the unexpected turned up and cheers were suddenly transformed into moans. The causes of not winning the second game will be recorded later on. TOO ONE-SIDED. . The first contest was almost entirely devoid of interest Not a cbcer was heard, and laughter seemed to be at a preminm. The vis itors took such a big lead at tbe offset that tbe balance of the game was too one-sided to be worth looking at Staley was thumped all over the lot, while little Dwyer proved quite a tough customer for the home players. They could do little or nothing with him. The rec ords show that Hanlon made a three-bagger off his delivery, but it was a very seedy three bagger indeed. The sun was sending its rayB strongly into right field, and any files that were knocked there were almost as good as safe hits. Anson, In the first inning, made a vo-bagger because of this condition of things. Miller couldn't see the ball, and Hanlon's fly was one of tbe easiest to catch that anybody could wish. But Duffy couldn't see tbe ball, and it dropped in front of him. Dwyer pitched a strong and effective fime, and be was one cause of defeat and taley's ineffective pitching the other. In the first inning, after Ryan was out. Van Haltren got his base bn balls but was forced out at second by Duffy's short grounder. Duffy stole second aided by Carroll's wild throw. Anson's two-bagger then sent Duffy borne. After two men were Out in the second inning Burns made a single and stole second on a passed balk Dwyer then made a scratch hit and Ryan's single sent Burns home. Three singles in rapid succession by Van Haltren, Duffy and Anson in the third, a sacrifice by Pf effer, and a passed ball and Burns' sacrifice sent in three more runs in the third. In the fourth Staley was battered hard. Ryan led off with a two-bagger to left and scored on Van Haltren's single. Tbe latter stole second and scored on Duffy's triple. Anson's sacrifice sent Duffy across the plate. Stalsy now settled down and pitched in his best form until the eighth inning, when Ryan hit him for three bases afier two men were out Van Haltren made a single and Ryan scored. Tbe only run of the home players was earned in the second inning Carroll led off with a single to center and scored on tbe Deacon's long two-bagger over Ryan's head. THE DBAWN BATTLE. The second game was one of the singular Kind, and doubtless hundreds of spectators are of opinion that a change of pitchers was the cause of the home team not winning it It is true that Sowderp was taken out of the box at a time when nobody had expected it He pitchedto tbe close of the sixth inning, and tbe score then was 8 to 5 in favor of the home team. Only six hits had been made off his delivery. But in the sixth inning he gave the two first men at bat their bases on balls and made a wild pitch. Both men scored, and this may have led Manager Hanlon to believe that ho was becoming unsteady. At any rate, Qalvin was put in, and the change resulted In the vis itors scoring twice in the seventh inning and fonr times in the ninth. Thus six runs were made off Galvin in three innings, while only five were made off Sowders in six. The general opinion seemed to be tbat Sowders ought to have remained in the box. The game, however, was a lively one, and old man Anson once or twice got down to some real earnest kicking. At timeStbere was some merry slugging, which kept up the spirits of the lovers of old time ball playing. Miller was also fined S3 during tbe game for the perform ance of a trick that fooled Mr. Ffeffer. Galvin was on third and Hanlon on first Miller was coaching Galvin. and when Hanlon started to steal second. Miller started to run toward the plate. Ffeffer thought it was Galvin and let Hanlon gi. Pfeffer, however, discovered tbe trick before be tbrew the ball, bnt Hanlon was safe. 'Til fine j ou $5," j elled Umpire Lynch. 'Til pay that fine," shouted a gentleman from a private box. 'TWAS A STUNNER. The first inning was a stunner for the home players. They started out as if they were going to knock long John Tener completely out of the park. The ball was kept flying in all direc tions. Hanlon started off with a double down the left foal line. Rowe made a single to cen ter, Beckley and Carroll each another to right, and Fields banged another to center. All this hitting combined with a f nmble by Duffy and a passed ball sent in four runs. A sacrifice bit each bv White and Miller sent Fields home. Then Kuehne knocked tbe ball into deep cen ter for two bases. Willie tried to make three on it bnt was nabbed. This was cheering, and everybody rubbvd their hands and laughed. In the third inning the visitors scored two runs, a base on balls. a,two-base hit, a sacrifice and a single. In tbe next inning Miller's two bagger and two sacrifices earned a run for the home team. The visitors made anbther in the fifth on two parsed balls, a single and a wild throw. The home players again found tbe ball in the sixth. Fields led off with a single to left and White made a donble to right A wild throw by Farrell sent Fields home andWhite reached third. The latter scored on Kuehne's long fly to Ryan. For the visitors Ffeffer and William son each got their base on balls, and a wild nitch advanced them to third and second. The next two men flew out to Hanlon, and then John Tener banged ont a long single to left, and both runners crossed the plate. TOOK SOWDEES OUT. Sowders was then retired, and Old Sport Gal vin went in to pitch. Van Haltren at once touched him up for a good single to left and Duffy's sacrifice sent Van to second. Anson got his base on balls, and a sacrifice by Ffeffer advanced each man a base, and Anson stole second. Williamson then made a single to left and both men scored. The score was 8 to 7 in favor of the home players when tbe ninth inning opened. Galvin led off and made a two-bagger amid cheers. Hanlon then got first on a fumble by Anson.and stole second. Rowe struck out and Beckley thumped the ball to the right field fence for three oases. A sacrifice by Carroll sent Beckley home with the third rnn. This made tbe home team four runs ahead of the visitors and vic tory looked certain. However the first four men at bat for the visitors banged the ball away tor long singles each, two of the men scoring. A sacrifice bit rent the otber two to third and second. Farrell's single sent in the two runs, which tied tbe score, amid a painful silence. For fonr innings more the game continued. neither team coming near scoring, isoin Jpitcbers did well and.a.Ib.eend lof the tUr - PITTSBURG - DISEATQH teenth inning the game was called on account of darkness.

Yonng Day, the Cape May pitcher, recently signed by the Phil adelphia club, was c;iven another trial to-day, and his wildness in tbe first and fourth innings contributed largely to tbe visitors' defeat In tbe first inning he gave five bases on balls, which with a base bit and Hallman's error, gave tbe Senators six runs. In the third Inning two bases on Sails, two singles, a -very stupid error by Day, who mistaking Beecber for a .Philadelphia player, tbrew the ball to the lat ter, who promptly let it pass him, and three runs were scored before the ball had been re covered. Day retired in this inning in favor of Sanders, who was qnlte effective, but he also left tbe box in the seventh inning in favor of Fogarty, who finished the game. Score: WAEH'TOH.

Youngman's bad fhrow hit a spectator and bounded, clear over out of,the ground, and al lowed three menta cross the plate and tie the score. Phillips pitched a great game for the home club, and allowed, the visitors only six hits, four of them being made after chances to retire the side had, been given. Quinn, Weir and Liston had costly errors. R. Smith played great in right field,th rowing two men out at first on seeminglysafe hits. Miller and Yonngman batted well, the former's three-base hit being the longest Jilt ever seen on the home ground. Lemon imade some great catches in center. Moor and Cargo batted well. Weir was great on ground balls, but his throwing was away off. On Monday our club goes to Braddock in the morning and plays the Blues, and returns and plays tbe champion East End Athletics In tbe afternoon at 3 o'clock, and as the clubs are al most tie for the championship there will to doubt be a great game. Phillips and Liston will be the battery in this game, and Newel and Liston will be the battery at Braddock in the morning; If the home club wins both these games they will most likely win.-the championship of the County League, as that will give them such a lead that they will be hard to overtake.

THE BEDS IN TROUBLE. No Sunday Ball Playing Put the Clab Into DlflUcuItlc. lErzCtAL TXLXQBAV TO THE DISPATCH.1 CutcirtNATr, August 3L Sunday ban is dead in this city, and the attempts to play outside have proved disastrous, while other announce, ments of fnture action are really building up a sentiment that it is best to obey the law. It is a sentiment that If defied will surely crush baseball here just as it bas crushed the Sunday saloon. Jnst what Cincinnati will do next year is problematical. Even from Ohio several of the concert saloonists have opened up Sunday joints in Covington, across the river, and the call club was talking of emigrating there; but a halt has been called on f ret and easy Sunday bnsiness even in Kentucky, and tbe criminal grand jury has called upon the authorities to enforce the law there. That closes another avenue which seemed open to Snnday ball. There is a weU defined story ont to-day that Brooklyn is after Lee Vian and that his release may be sold to the Grooms. Cincinnati has five pitchers on the pay roll, and that is two too. many. Somebody will have to go. Earl is the only red leg who did not go East with the team. He is still here, and has about recovered from his malarial attack. A Victory for Toronto. rSPXCIAI. TH.EORAH TO TBS SISFATCh!i Toronto, O..

The leaders bore over until it looked as if he would be shut oft With a shake WincheU had him clear, and in a couple-ot jumps he was in front Then he began, to take things easy. Suddenly Rnperta came from the ruck with a rush that made tbe backers of -the favorite quiver. She was gaining every stride. In fact for a mo ment she was ahead, but WincheU was equal to the occasion, and with one cut of the whip tbe gallant chestnut was again in front and had added another to his unbroken list of vic tories.
