Eeason for the Decision in. the
Boat Eace Dispute.
Opinions About the Searle-O'Connor
Championship Contest.
Difficulties Between the Local Baseball Club
and its Kew Pitchers.
Probably one of the most unsatisfactory
sporting events that has taken place in this
locality for a very lonp time is the Teemer
Gaudaur boat race. The event was one ol
the leading affairs of the week, and directly
concerns myself, inasmuch as I was called
npon to perform a duty that was as dis
tastcfnl as it was thankless. It was one of
the most unfortunate events that I have
been interested in, and doubtless it will
have a very dampening effect on professional
boat rowing In this locality. It will
have this effect because many peo
ple will not for one moment stop to
argue conscientiously all the features
and outs and ins of the question. Of course I
am veil aware that numerous people are of
opinion that on Friday Tecmcr was beaten by a
better man than himself. Granting this, how
ever, docs not at all affect the reasons for the
decision that tho race bo rowed over. Like
other events of the kinds the race was under a
very ripd and clear co Jo of rules. The Teemcr
party claimed that these rules had been vio
lated, and urged that Gaudaur's arrival first at
the winning end was the result of a violation
of the rules under which the race was being
rowed. This claim or objection nar
rowed the matter down, not to
a qnestion of merit, but to a
question of whether or, not Teenier had been
interfered with or that Gaudaur had received
an undue advantage in any way. Teemer yes
terday afternoon claimed that Hamm, Gau
daur's trainer, had interfered with him; in fact,
had broken his boat; and be further claimed
that Hamm was on the course for the purpose
of coaching Gaudaur. In a word, the first ob
jection was overruled at once, because, as ref
eree. 1 absolutely tailed to see at any time
where Hatuta's boat interfered with Teemer's.
The second objection, however, was stronger,
and had sufficient force to warrant the decision
made. After the race I asked Hamm
pointedly at McKeesDort what he was doing
on the course. Here's what he said: "I was there
to protect Gaudaur and keep him from striking
any snags." This admission, which was heard
by everybody in the room, meant that he was
absolutely violating a rule and one of the most
prominent. Here is the rule. It is rule 16 of
the code under which the race was rowed: "Xo
boat shall be allowed to accompany a competi
tor for tho purpose of directing his course or
affording him other assistance. The boat re
ceiving such direction or assistance shall be
disqualified at the discretion of the umpire."
Ilnmm's Admission.
Now I fall to see how any man who can read
or understand Enghs.li can fail to perceive how
Hamm's admission and the rule can be recon
ciled. If guiding a man clear of snags is not
assisting him or piloting him, I fall entirely to
understand the English language. St. John,
who is undoubtedly one of the most honorable
and clear-headed gentlemen that I have known
in boat-rowing affairs, argued that though
Hamm was on tbe river lor tnat purpose, he
did not carry out his intention. Tbm tn mj
way of thinking is not a sufficient
answer Hamm says he was there for that
purpose, and he was uncomfortably near the
rowers, and when he went out to perform the
mission, which, he admits, he could do it in a
hundred ways not discernible to the uninitiated.
I was one of the latter. At any rate, 1 fail to
see why Hamm had any reason, outside of car
rying out his acknowledged intentions, to be
rowing from side to Aide ahead of the rowers
and within a very short distance of them.
Briefly, that is one reason for the decision. An
other is that every steamer accompanjing the
race. excpt the referee's boat, was ahead of
Teemer long before the race was finished. I
submit that was an interf erence.The disgraceful
conduct of the McDowell and tho Dauntless
not only interfered with the sternmost man.hut
shut out the referee from the race for a consid
erable distance. Both men have a right to pro
tection as far as the application of the rulesare
concerned.and at all hazards the rules were ap
plied irrespective of the merits of the men.
Rules are rules with me on all occasions, and
Hamm has only himself to blame for the very
unfortunate termination of the race. On many
occasions 3Ir. St. John has urged that nobody
should be on the course but the rowers, and if
Hamm was not on the water and in close com
pany with the rowers, in the interests of his
charge, Gauaaur, I fail to see why he was there
at all.
The Little Kicker.
It is amusing to find m events of this kind
the various kind of kickers. After the decision
was made last evening I met a gentleman who
was awfully wild and making considerable
noise about the honesty of sports. He very
emphatically stated that the affair would ruin
rowing here and intimated that the decision
was worse than "rotten." I discovered that
our friend had been betting on the race and
had backed Gaudaur. But the same gentle
man a few dajs previously had stated tnat the
whole "business was fixed," and accordingly he
was betting because of 'information received."
As a rule I have found that these tremendous
kickers, who claim to have the dignity and
honesty of any particular sport at heart, are
people who never hesitate to participate in all
the "fixed" affairs that they can connect them
selves with. I have done with the race and I
only regret that .Mr SL John did not resolve to
row the race again on a course where he could
rely on all the fairness and protection nec
essary. About ciillln(j Generally.
For the first time in a very long period pro
fessional rowing has taken the foremost place
in a week's sporting affairs. The two races,
that is. those between Searleand O'Connor and
Teemer and Gaudaur, have once more drawn
the attention of snorting people and the world
generally lo the historic and excellent sport of
rowing. I am glad, indeed, of this, because of
all the oudoor sports I think that boat racing,
in its best ana most honest features, is one of
tho finpst, if not the very finest. I'm sure there.
is nothing prettier to look unon, nor more ex
citing, than a good piofcssional four-oared
race, nor c en a. uncle scull contest between
rowers somewhat evenly matched. lam aware
mat proicssionai rowing has been under a ban
for a long time. I have, on several occasions,
given my views in these columns a. to the
caues: but it seems to me that we may hope
lor a speedy return of that sport to its'formcr
position. Of coarse, the race on the Thames
last Monday has done much to get boat racing
before the public again, and as a re
sult we may expect general races
of more or less importance before
the winter comes. Tho race undo jbtedly was
one of the best, and the result was to very many
Jeople a great surprise. I am free to admit that
or once I was wrong in my selection of a win
ner for the race, and now that it is all over it is
quite plain to sec how a mistake of that kind
could be made. Almost all the leading authori
ties In England and this country favored the
chances of O'Connor. He was beaten, however,
and beaten very badly bj a modern rowing
About Senrle and O'Connor.
Had any of us in America who stuck to O'Con
nor seen Scarle row a race at Ills best, we certainly
would have plumped for the Australian, but, as I
have said more than once, he was to Americans an
unknown quantity. True, be had an unbeaten
record at home, but 60 had O'Connor, and we were
'all under the Impression that the standard of row
ing In Australia was mucb below that of this coun
try, lliere's ihere the big mistake was made,
and that's how so many of us got astray, hearlc
bss demonstrated this fact beyond a doubt
and his ictory proves that Beach was a better
man than we had. Of course the usual excuses
for O'Connor's defeat have been and are being
made He states that he vas overtrained: some
of hie friends blame the course and some one
tblUK and son another. However. I am flrmly
eonvlni-edthnt O'Connor was beaten by a better
mwer than himself The race speaks for itself.
The Canadian made an excellent start and got
away from the mark with the best ofR. .He was
down to bl rowing lielorc aearle and had
his boat at her best speed In remarkably
quirk lime. For 300 or 400 yards O'Connor was in
lront, and that cheered his friends Immensely.
However, as soon as bearle got settled down to
work the Jig was up. His boat seemed to leap
through the water; so we are told, and O'Connor
caught a crab and relinquished the lead. Now
this catching a crab simply means that O'Connur
was trying to do more than he posslblv could do:
in his great ofibrts ne became a little flurried, and
despite -his strenuous exertions, bearle's
boat gradually went to the front, and
gradually left a space between It and the boat of
O'Connor. Seirle was making his boat travel
laster than O'Connor's boat was, and that tells
the story of the entire race. Without any extra
exertion bearle continued t increase his lead,
although O'Connor was rowing a clean and pow
erful stroke. The time to Hammersmith bridge,
about a mile and three-quarters, was extraordi
nary, and this undoubtedly settled O'Connor.
The Australian carried him along at a clip that
he couldn't hold out. and he "cracked" Just
a Teemer did at Washington when O'Connor
carried him awav at a killing pace. Without
doubt O'Connor can row over the Thames course
in faster time than thatln which he was beaten bv
bearlc But on .Monday he was rowed to a stand
still In the early part or the race and couldn't
finish In anything like his usual form. Of course
till proves that Scarle is not only speedier than
O'Connor, but that he is also a much better
stjncr. However, O'Connor's tremendous
exertions to stick to the Australian in the
earlv part of the race may have been right
and"thei may have been wrong. If wo recall
all the rices we lunc ever seen we willfindmany
that hat e been lost by rowers breaking themselves
don n in the early part of the contest: Indeed. I
once saw aery good rower alolutelv collapse
when about three or four lengths In front. The
time of the race, however, would seem to Indicate
that O'lonnor vas thoroughly outclassed.
S-earlc's I2: was remarkably fast time consider
ing that the contest was only a mere procession
alter two miles had been rowed. I ieel certain
that had searle been pushed the way that Gaudaur
pushed Ueach he would hai e beaten Beach's time,
Why Amcricn is Second.
We can now rest satisfied that America is no
longer in the i an in the aquatic world so far as
sculling Is concerned. Australia seems to be
making rowers to order, and making them very
fast at that. It is only the other day that Searle
loomed up. A Tew months before he appeared
llcach had Just surprised the world. There is a
host or others also at the other side of the globe
who are undoubtedly first class men taking Searle
as the standard. But while the Australians have
been Increasing thelrquantlty orrowcrs and im
proving the quality, the Americans hae been
sllghtlv going In the opposite direction. We
haven't made a new sculler of any note for a very
long time. We have been dealing In the old stock
lor years Our slock In trade have been Uaudaur,
Teemer, Hamm, Ho6inerandafcw others for a
very long time, and there are no
?rospects yet of anv new wonder appearing,
lie cause of this dearth of young rowers Is found
in the fact that professional rowing fell Into dis
repute some years ago. and the public would have
little or nothing to do with It. As soon as public
interest began to wane the youth of the country
turned their attention to some other out-door
amusement and exercise. Hence the supply of
young blood fell wofully off, and as a result we
naie nothing but the old and fast-decaying stock
to rely on. However, there is a hope that In
a short time America will again make
'a strong and successful bid for the sculling su
premacy of the world. 1 am vcrv glad. Indeed, to
sec that Mr. fcU John is makint: tfiorts to orean-
ire a Professional Kowers' Association. If such a
thing were established on the lines laid down bv
Mr. bt. John, depend upon it professional aquat
ics would soon become purified. 1 hope rhat the
gentleman's eflortswill meet with favor in all
directions. If some people claim that, morally
speaking, professional rowing has degenerated,
that is the very reason why they
should encourage the formation of an organiza
tion that will absolutely improve matters. Mr.
bt. John has a constitution and by laws prepared
for the proposed association, and the sooner It Is
formed the better. Its existence will assuredly
give us much enconragement lo hope that young
America will take hold of aquatic sports airaln.
and If this is done certainly will American skill,
blood and muscle tell In aquatic contests through
out the world Just as they do in other branches of
ItlcAnlifTo and Killen.
Some time ago 1 had occasion to write some very
plain words about Patrick Killen, he who has
for a long time been dubbed the "champion
pugilist or the Northwest." When! the title of
national champion was in dispute I think Mr.
Killen aspired to that, and on more than one oc
casion tht great and only John L. indorsed or
recommended Mr. Killen's pugilistic abilities in
very strong, though not elegant language. At
that time I argued to prove that Killen
had never done anything to prove himself either
a boxer or a fighter. I went lurthcr than that and
said that when Killen anet a man In the ring who
could hit hard and protect himself moderatelv
well he. Killen, would come out of the contest a
badly battered man. If he had the pluck to slay.
liut iaio questionea nis piuck. xnese aisparage-
ments were assailed by many people and two or
three w ell-known writers. Howev cr, I am hap
However, lam hannv
to say that Klllcu's recent fight with Joe Jic-
Aulltlc has proven everv word 1 said to be true.
That contest was undoubtedly one of the most
amusing 1 ever saw. Killen showed that be
hasn't a heart as big as a mouse nor as much
science as a mn le. And it was him who was going
to teach McCaffery points on boxing. McAulltfe
was s'inpty hitting the useless KUIen whenever he
liked. This was too much for Killen's brave
heart to stand, and In the seventh round he
grasped the ropes and stood there Uae a cur. Af
ter being hit when in that position, he and his
friends claimed foul, but the claim didn't go.
I hope we have had the last of Killen. lie, like
many others, was all right when the glove con
test mania was raging and wnen the "recelots
were divided." However, when it comes down
to a real pugilistic contest tlieKUlensand Elllngs
worths very rapldiy disappear.
A lyocnl Foot Race.
It is sometime since I utilized any space in com
menting on any local foot race. I bave had my
reasons for this, but there is a race underlined
for Saturday next that In my opinion merits a
few words. I refer to the one-mile foot race be
tween Edward Mklrk and E. C McClelland,
which takes place at Exposition Fart. They are
two old opponents, and there Is all that feeling
between them necessary to put ginger into the
contest McClelland so far has not been beaten
In a match, and he has beaten both i'riddy and
Mklrk on more than oneoccaslon. Onbaturdav,
however, he runs a race shorter than
he has ever tried before. His latest effort
was a mile and a half against Mklrk.
whom he easily defeated. A mile, however. It is
claimed, is not nis distance. This may and may
not be so, but I am Inclined to the notion that a
man who can run three, four or five miles In
food time Is often a very good roller. It does not
emand a sprinter's speed to run a mile, and un
doubtedly McClelland has speed enough to be a
very good mile runner. He is train
ing at Mansfield. Nlklrk is training in
this cltv and is, as we all know, a very
speedy and pretty runner. He Is undoubtedly a
much speedier man than McClelland, but the
question Is can be stay a mile? He and his back
ers think be can, and they are confident of vic
tor, and so are the McClelland party. I expect
to sec a good and honest race. If the track is
good the contest wll be worth seeing. 1 know
that a rivalry between the parties exist that will
make matters very w arm, and the public can rely
on the fact that if all goes well the best man will
liRsebnll Affairs.
Without donbt the week Just gone has been the
dnllest In baseball affairs since the season opened.
Kaln, of course, has bad mucb, I might say all, to
do with It. Remarkably few games have been
played on account of the rain, lioston has been
among tbe lucky ones, and has managed to tighten
its grip on first place cnlefly because New Vprk
has not had an opportunity to improve its posi
tion. Although there has been quite a singular
lull in tbe baseball world, I don't remember or a
period in Pittsburg when there was as little inter
est in the national game as there has been during
the past week. inls Is easily accounted for. Tbe
club's poor work tells the whole story.
Ibis is the brief truth of the matter,
and 'tis a pity that 'tis true. 'The eeason
has gone far enough now for us to say that it will
be remembered as a very tough one for the Pitts
burg club. Financially It won't be a success,
while the club's work will be ranked among the
worst. Secretary bcandrett remarked to me the
other day that the pluhers were almost entirely
toblameforthepoorshowlngofthe team. This
is also a true statement, and tbe statement seems
singular, because no club has had more pitchers
on its list this season than Pittsburg has. The
trouble seems to have been fn getting hold or the
wrong men, and in this respcet 1 fear that a de
sire to speculate too cheaply has made matters a
little worse linn they might have been. 1 still
hold the opinion that the wonderful pitchers
who'.e homes are in this city could have been
secured by the local club if the price hid
been paid. However, there Is some consolation
or satlslartlon In the fact that on.irts are still
being made to secure good pitchers. As has been
staled In 'Hie DISPATCH. Alexander Jones, of
Homestead, and young Hess, or PliUadclphla,
will be given each a try. That means they will be
signed, and It Is probable that both of them will
be reserved by the clnb for next season. The
present season is so far advanced that it might be
wise to give both these young men a thorough
trial, the same as other clubs Invariably do with
their new and vounir olavcrs. 1 am dlsnnsori tn

Wc all have heard that old adage to the effect
that a house divided against Itself cannot stand.
There have been many prpofs or this lu all phases

one or the most unrortunate quarrels or baseball
history is now going on in the American Associa

all know that Von der Alie, since his club
earned a national prominence, has been, or
has tried to be, an aulocrit. He
has been the source of many, very many
quarrels. Theprcnt one is almost entirely or
his own making- His team has been acenstomed
for years to hold first place easllv and recently It
met wlih six or seven unexpected defeats which
sent it out of premier position. Uhls, undoubted
ly, raised the Ire of Von der Ahe and he has been
looking for a victim ever since. There are rumors
to the effect that he will join the League. The
League does not need a Von der Ahe no more than
the Association, and the latter ought certainly to
trvand eet rid or him as soon as possible. It Is
such men as Von der Ahe that jeopardizes the
popularity or the game despite their good clubs.
These people are always keeping bad feelings at
boiling point. The national game can do without

The Senators Take His Measure and
Pittsburg Is Beaten.
The Giants Win Two Gaines From the
Chicago Team.
Interestinir Humors About the New Brotherhood's
The borne club suffered another defeat
Yesterday. The Washington tailenders beat
them this time. New York won two games
from Chicago. Rumors are current to the
effect that the new ball players' brother
hood has leased ball grounds at Chicago
and cut the Chicago clnb out.
"Washington, September 14. "Hit it
out, boys," was the injunction laid upon
the members of the Pittsburg and "Wash
ington teams this afternoon, and in conse
quence the final appearance here this season
of the Western contingent of the League
was marked by a slugging contest from
start to finish, but the Senators were luckier
than the lads from tjje Smoky City in
haying-men on bases when hits were made,
and this will account for the plethoric forms
so necessary to a yictory. Continu
ous rain of tbe past four days bad
left the ground in poor condition and in
racing parlance it was a "heavy track"
which confronted both nines when they came
on the field a lew minutes past 4 o'clock to
begin business. Meanwhile a squad of small
bojs had been industriously circulating around
theinQeld scattering; sawdust and raKlngit
into the mud and the diamond was made fairly
fit to play. With all these safeguards, how
ever, Carroll, the first striker for the Pitts
burgs, made
at first after his grounder to short had been
thrown wildly by Clam to Connie Mack.
Beaching the bag in safety Carroll incautiously
ventured beyond the sawdust, only to measure
bis full length in the yielding arms of mother
earth. "While prone npon the ground Captain
Hanlon was yelling for the runner to take
second, but the look upon the latter's face
showed that be had no such intention. This
was but one instance of numerous tumbles and
slides in tbe mud and the catchers were not
worried much by daring base runners. Hoy, the
mute center fielder of the Senators, being the
only player who essayed to steal second base,
and he was successful. Two games were
scheduled for the afternoon, but it was impos
sible to play more than one from the factjhat
the sun was tardy in making his appearance
and thereby drying the outfield.
Marshall Ransdcll, of the District of Colum
bia, who has recently achieved a national repu
tation for connection with the Tanner case,
and ex-Commi-sioner of Pensions Dudley were,
among the spectators in the grand stand, but
they were evenly divided in sentiment, the
former favoring the visitors, while Colonel
Dudley stood manfully for tbe Senators. Cap
tain Arthur Irwin, fresh from a hunt after
available men lor next season, sat near Presi
dent Young, who was anxiously awaiting a re
ply from President Nimick, of the Pittsburgs,
regarding the tie came at Phila
delphia between Harry Wright's team
and the Beaneaters. Although tho wires
were charged with electricity just overhead,
nothing came to gladden the anxious president
of the League except tbe statement that the
New Yorks had won two eames from tho Chi
nagos, while lioston was breaking even with tbe
League babies. There was considerable noise
all through the game, which was the only relief
to tbe monotony of a long drawn-out contest,
in which brilliant fielding was at. a discount,
and Sam Wise and John Irwin vied with each
other in seeing who could make the most noise.
Owing to tbe absence of his brother, John Irwin
was captain for the day, and be claimed to have
to his catcher and he was not slow to give
his men the benefit of his acquisition. Brother
John, however, could not master the puzzle
himself, and nut of his five times at bat did not
a hit mark his stick work. Bun getting began
in earnest in the first inning, when Clark fum
bled Carroll's grounder near second base, and
then threw the ball 'wildly to Mack. Bowo
sent an apparently safe hit along the first base
line, but Mack stopped in time, Carroll taking
second in the meantime. Then Beckley drove
the ball over Beecber's head for a double and
Carroll crossed the plate. Whito and Fields
were thrown out at first by Clark. John Irwin
knocked a bail through Staley and sprinted to
first base only to be advanced to second by
Hoy's single to center. Wilmot sacrificed to
Dunlap, sending both of his companions for
ward a base and on Beckley's safe hit to left
Hoy galloped home. With men on third and
first bases Sam Wise lifted the ball over the
right field fence and the inning closed with tbe
score four to one in favor of the Senators,
Clark and Mack both retiring on foul files to
Both sides drew blanks in the second inning.
Keefe being the only player who reached first
base, this act beihg accomplished with the as
sistance of Staley and four bad balls. Pitts
bures stock took an upward tendency in tbe
third lnnine. After Staley had retired at fiist
on his. grounder to Sam Wise, Carroll made
tbe ball spin over second base, but Jack Howe
struck out. This did not deter Beckley from
finding tbe ball, however,' and be swung tbe
bat effectively, and. Carroll took third on a
drive to riant 'field. Deacon White balanced
bis bean pole carelully, and after two strikes
had been called, he mado the ball hum over
John Irwin's head, and two runs resulted from
this enterprise and skill with the stick. Ciphers
were in order during1 the fourth inning for
both teams, and tbe Pittsburgs could not do
Detter tnan one, two, tnree in tue nun.
however, and for the second time during the
game, four runs were auded to their quoto, and
these proved to be tho settlers of the game.
Hov led oil with a hit, and Wilmot 'sent a fly
to Fields, who accepted the nomination with
thanks. Then Beccher and Wise rapped oat
singles, upon which Hoy scored, and Mack
cleared the bases on a double which caromed
off the right field fence. Daly sent a grounder
to White at third, who toyed with it on bis
knee, and. ere he could recover tho ball. Mack
was over the home plate, with what turned out
to be the winning run. It looked like a forlorn
hope, but the plucky Pittsbnrgers came up to
the plate In the sixth with determination writ
ten upon their countenances, and before tbe
inning ended the spectators were kept on the
anxious seat in every sense of the term. Fields
took first on called balls only to be thrown out
at second by Keefe, who muffed Miller's pop
fly near the pitcher's position. Hanlon and
Dunlap hit safely, sending Fields home, and
both runners scored on an ovorthrow by Wil
mot to the home plate and bad return ot the
ball bv Keeffi to Dalv. Carroll flew out to Hov.
and Staley, who had been sent to first on called
balls, was touched out at third while trying to
steal the base on a poor throw by Clark to head
off Bowe at first base.
Mack sent tho ball like the wind to John
Irwin and run-getting was ended so far as
that inning was concerned. Tho Washingtons
ground out two more runs in the sixth inning
on a base on balls. Wil mot's base hit, a sacri
fice bit by Beecber and Wise and the game was
virtually settled. But the Pntsburgers were
not done yet, and the seventh inning witnessed
another rally, although but one crossed tbe
rubber square. Beckley was given first by
Keefe and Deacon White struck out,
Fields rapped out a doable, upon
which Becklcv scored, but in attempt
ing to reach home on Miller's hit to left
Fields was thrown out by Wilmot to Daly.
This proved a fatal error, for Hanlon hit safely,
but Dunlap ended tbe inning by being called
out on strikes. The eighth inning was barren of
results so far as runs were concerned, although
Staley and Beecher made safe bits for tbeir re
spective sides. Deacon White opened the ninth
inning in good form with a clean single, but be
was forced out at second by Hanlon alter
Fields had struck out and Miller's flyback of
third base had been attended to by John Irwin.

Cnpt.Fnntz Fined nnd Ordered Off tbe Field
nt Boston.
Boston, September 14. The Bostons and
Clevelands divided honors to-day, each winning
one game. In the first, tho fielding of tho visi
tors was execrable, and this aided by the Bos
tons' lively stick work, cave the latter an easy
victorv. In the second game Cleveland played
a faultless fielding game and bunched their hits.
Boston made the largest number of hits but
only one to an Inning. The fielding of Nash,
Quinn. Smith, MoKean, Strieker and Tebeau
were the features of the games. In the third
inning of the second game Captain Kaatz was
fined S75 and ordered from the field tor con
tinued abuse of tbe umpire Curry, and Tebeau
was fined ?60. The trouble arose over a double

They Defeat Anson Twlco ns a Windnp at
New York, September 14. The New York
and Chicago teams played two eames at the
Polo grounds to-day, the Qiants winning both.
Tbey were the Giants' last championship games
on the home grounds this year, and the crowd
gave the champions the heartiest kind of a
send-off. At the conclusion of the second
game tbe crowd cheered tbe local players with
great zest. The-first game was well played.
Ward, Blchardson and Welch covered them,
selves with glory and the spectators were con
tinually applauding.
The second game probably caused Anson
more sufferinc than any otber game he ever
played. Dwyer's curves were batted in every
direction, while In the fifth inninn; the whole
Chicago team went to pieces. Keefe had taken
Welch's j)Iace, and after tho first inning gave a
superb exhibition of scientific pitching.

ItlcKeesport Has Evidently Struck a Streak
of Good Lack.
jIcKeesfort, September 14. McKeesports
and Etnas played two games here to-day, the
first being an exhibition game and was won by
the home club, 11 to 1: Thompson and Steitz
being the pitchers. Five bits were made off
Thompson. The second game was hotly con
tested, and tho home club won, 5 to 2; both
pitchers being very effective. Lanfried only
allowing five hits, and Phillips only allowed
three hits, two of them being- scratches. The
features nf the gamo were two great fly
catches, one by Hartman and one by Gibbons.
Hartman bad a day off at third, but did very
good work outside of his; threo errors. Liston
caught very well, but missed a couple of third
strikes. Williams put up a great game at sec
ond, and Gibbons' work in middle was great.
Cargo put up a good game at short, and the
came was well played all through. McKees
ports are now a, good second in the race, as
Bra'ddock'lost to Homestead and therefore
goes back a peg.
McKeesports havo only threo more games to
play, and must win tbem all to win tbe cham
pionship. Our club is good now, outside of a
regular third baseman and another pitcher.

Some Big Rumors From Chicago Which
Slate That the Ball Players Have
Leased Gronnds Ahead of Spald
ing The New Scheme
Said to be a Go.
Chicago, September 14. Hints of various
kinds touching an important more to be made
by the Brotherhood of Baseball Flayers bare
been published recently, but none of them have
coTerbd tbe ground. The report that the
Brotherhood of Ball Players intend to take the
game out of tho hands of the present owners of
the League clnbs seems to, bave some founda
tion. They are preparing to "gobble" the whole
business, grounds, players, audiences and all.
And what's more, they don't propose to lose
any time in doing it.
The probabilities are that, by tbe close of the
present League season, the plans of the
Brotherhood will be well enough matured to
warrant a public acknowledgment of their
intentions. J nst at present tbey are not giving
away any more of the particulars than tbey
can help. Mr. Spalding, however, got a quiet
tip of what was going on the other day, and It
came in a way calculated to confirm tbe rumor
of organized opposition. The Chicago ball dob's
lease on its present gronnds, a: tbe corner of
Congress and Loom is streets, exnires this vear.
and some time ago Mr. Spalding bought a site
for a new park, near the Connty Hospital. He
was given to understand by tbe contractors
that they wonld have the new gronnds ready
for use at tho opening games next season, and,
relying upon their promises, be notified tbe
owners of the old park that he would not re
new the lease. A few days ago Mr. Spalding
inspected his new purchase, and, instead of
finding the carpenters and landscape gardeners
at work, as be expected, saw only a few lazy
.teamsters dumping ashes and garbage in a
seemingly bottomless hole.
Mr. Spalding was mad. He recognized tbe
fact that it would be impossible to put the
grounds in shape for the opening games and
thought he would re-lease tbe old park. When
he called upon the owners, however, with that
object he was given to understand that he was
too late. An option bad been- taken by a re
sponsible Chicagoan and he refnsed to sur
render it. Not only this, but tbe gentleman
had said that be wanted the gronnd to play ball
on. And he does. Thatgentlemanistheagent
here of the Brotherhood, and has worked
things so well that the Chicago ball club will
not only be without grounds next season, but
without players as well that is, good ones.
The plan of the Brotherhood is to run tbe
game.so far as the League cities are concerned,
on a sort of co-operative basis. If it succeeds
then the other Associations may be similarly
reorganized. It is proposed to place the man
agement of the whole affair in the hands of a
general committee of eight, consisting of one
representative from each League club.
These clubs will probably be formed
in New York. Boston. ChiweOi Philadel
phia, Brooklyn, Cincinnati, Washington
and Cleveland or St. Louis. Each club will
have a stock capital of 120,000, some of which
will be taken by the players and the rest by
the men who are to act as officers and financial
backers. In this city there are already five
applicants for every dollar's worth of stoefcand
the scheme has been .only confidentially
broached to a baker's dozen of men. One of the
lareest investors here is Fred Pfefler. who has
accumulated about $40,000, and is in shape to
take some chances. Pleffer, It may be
added, will probably be the manager of the
Chicago club under the new regime. The
players are to receive a small bnt fair salary
and a percentage of the net profits. The re
ceipts, after all expenses,includlng the players,
salaries and percentages, are paid, are to be
put into a pool and divided into eight equal
parts, one share going to each club. It is
hoped by this torbilng the cities all on the same
financial footing and do away with the claim
that the strong are making money at the ex
pense of tbe weak.
A sinking fund will be made and the rest
paid in dividends.
A Defeat for tbe Bines.
Bhaddock, September It The Homestead
club secured the last championship game be
tween them and the Braddock Blues in a con
test that was insignificant here this afternoon.
The battery for the Homestead club was Jones
and Hess and for tbe Blues Hillcr and Bennett.
In the fourth inning Brien was putintothePbox.
The score at tbe finish stood-6 to 1 In favor of
Homestead . Jones pitched a wunderf ul game.
The all around playing of "Bud" Bennett was
another feature, he accepting ten chances
without an error. The Homestead clnb made
two runs iu the second inning, two in the third
and two in the seventh. Bndd Bennett made
the only run that tbe Blues scored, in the sec
ond inning. The game was called at the end of
the eighth inning on account of darkness.
