CLAEKSOK SDKELI LOSING HIS GRIP
The Pittsburg club scored its eighth con
secutive Tictory yesterday, nearly shutting
Philadelphia out Boston, with ClarLson
in the box, was just pie for the Indianapolis
sluggers, and Ifew York again leads by a
scant necfc, playing a tie game with Chi
cago. Cleveland played twice, winning and
- IThe Philadelphia club was outplayed in
ail directions yesterday, and at no time was
tbcre the slightest prospect of them winning
the game. Sowders was in the box and
Jones on the bench or the local aggrega
tion, and the former gentleman made a
splendid display of pitching ability, as well
as accomplishing some work at the bat. In
fact, up to the eighth inning, the Pittsburg
pitcher alone had as many hits as the entire
Philadelphia club. Four hits, with a total ol
five, were all that the Tisltors secured daring
the entire contest.
For the first time in many days Bnffinton
tossed the sphere across the plate. He was hit
hard at the right moments, and gave three men
their bases on balls, while Sowders would not
even concede one of his opponents such a favor.
Fogarty again distmcotshed himself in middle
garden, bnt the fielding feature of the day was
the phenomenal one-hand catch that Thomp
son made of Sowdcr's apparently safe liner.
ALMOST PERFECT PLATING.
'With the exception of Deacon White, whose
error was of an excnsable nature, the Pitts
barg club put up a faultless fielding game.
Hanlon caught some hard files, and Dnnlap
made two exoellent backward running catches.
BccUcJ work was first-class, and tbe double
play accomplished with the aid of White was
of tbe brilliant order.
Miller was the first man at the bat and hit a
lively grounder to Hallman. wno threw him
out at first. Kowe gauged Buffinton's delivery
for a nice sincle. and BecUey hit a long fly to
center, bnt the omnipresent Fogarty got nnder
it In time. White secured a. base on balls, and
Fields retired tbe side by flying to Fogarty,
after Clements had made a square muff of his
rather easy fonL
Dnnlap made a good catch of Delehanty8
short fly, and Myers quit from Kowe to Beck
ley. Thompson hit safely over second base,
bnt was left at first on Mnlvey's high fly to
Beckley. The second inning was decidedly
brief. Hanlon cot to base on balls, bat was
thrown ont by Clements while trying to steal
second. Sunday and Dnnlap flew out. Two
flies to the infield and an out at first sent
Philadelphia to tbe field.
A HABD HITTIXG PITCHES.
In the third inning Mr. Sowders stepped to
the plate and hit safely, bat was forced at
second on Miller's life. The latter went to
second on a bad throw by Myers, and Rowe se
cured a base oa balls. Beckley advanced each
a base by a sacrifice, and both scored on White's
safe hit. Fields presented Fogarty with
another pat-out. The first three batters on
ltae Philadelphia side went ont, Hallman fan
In tbe ionrth Hanlon had three stril.es call"d
on him, and bnnilay and Dnnlap made the next
two outs on an assist to first and a fiy. One,
two, three was The order on the opposite 'lie.
la tbe fifth bowders led off with a doable in his
favorite short rieht field, and Miliar followed
with a clean three-bagger, bringing in bowd jrs,
and scoring tbe only ear if 1 run of the game.
Jtnwe and Beckley went out on f onl files, and
White struck out. Again tbe Philadelphia
side letlredin order
SOME MORE HITS.
Fields and Sunday each secured singles in
the sixth, but were thrown out while attempt
ing to do some fancy base running. Hanlon
made tbe other out. In tbe other half Hall
man led off with a hit, and was advanced to
second on Buffinton's sacrifice. Delehanty hit
to W hite, and both runners were retired by the
quick throws of White and Beckley.
Nothing was then accomplished until the
eichth inning, when Fogarty hit hard to right
alter Clements had been retired. Sunday
fielded the ball to Dunlap,who sent it to White
in time to catch the runner at third, bnt the
Deacon was not quite equal to tbe occasion,
and Forarrv was safe. .He scored a moment
ilater on a sacrifice bv Farrar. makinir the onlv
run for his club. Hallman flew oat to Fields.
SUNDAT AT IT AGAKT.
In the last inning Sunday got another nice
tingle after Hanlon had retired, and wen: to
third on two wild throws. Dnnlap sent a long
sacrifice fly to center, and Snnday sprinted
home before Fogart, could return the balL
Myers secured a bit in tbe other half, but got
no further tnan first base before the game was
Tbe comparatively fine weather and the good
playing of tbe local team bad a favorable effect,
and there was a rood crowd in attendance. The

A Great Game for S100 a Side and the
rSrCCIAL TXLXQRA1I TO TUB BISFATCH.)
Beaves Falls, September 23. The Bearer
Grajs and the Giants, of Philirsburg, played
here to-day for 100 a side and the champion
ship of Beaver county. The game was s mag
nificent one, notwithstanding tho errors made,
which were excusable on both sides. Kerner
started in to pitch for the Philipsburgs, but he
was wild and was sized up for five clean hits in
two innings. Balzer was then substituted at
the beginning of the third inning and his oppo
nents could not solve his nuzzling delivery ex
cept in the last inning, when they secured two
of the three hits made off him.
The Beavor Falls contingent showed up m
great shape, especially Cole, who made some
marvelous stops. Johnston's playing at second
was a feature, as his assists looked like base
hits. Jobe pitched In tine form throughout the
game, and was admirably supported by Caler.
The Beavers outplayed their opponents at every
point, and won the game on tbeir merits', A
large crowd was in attendance, which seemed
to favor the Philipsbcrgs. It is estimated that
$400 changed hands on the result, and to-night
the delegates from "Quaytown" are painting
their village red. Schacbem, late of the New
Orleans and the New Haven clubs, caught
for the Giants. Pirn Kuhn's playing was

An Exciting Race at the Exposition
GREENHORN LANDS A WINNER.
McClelland Puts Dp a Forfeit to Bnn Peter
Priudy a Mile.
OPENING DAI AT T1IE LATONIA TEACK.
An Offer to Hatch Tonne Stockbridgs to Trot Against
Tbe local race meeting closed yesterday
and there was some excellent racing. E. C.
McClelland puts up a forfeit to run Peter
Priddy a mile race. The owner of Young
Stockbridge offers to match his horse to trot
against Harry Hontas for a big stake. La
tonia fall meeting opened.
There was nothing slow about the racing
.yesterday at Exposition Park, except the
time. However, nobody was present ex
pecting to see records broken. The antici
pation was to witness good and close con
tests. There were plenty of these, and it is
safe to say th-it a more exciting race than
the 228 pace is seldom seen. The track,
though a little dnsty, was in good condition,
and tbe attendance numbered about 700 or S00.
There were no matuals sold nor any books
made on the races, but private betting was
very extensive which proves conclusively that
no law can stop betting. At some stages the
betting was extremely heavy and was con
ducted as all clandestine operations are,-without
any regulation or guarantee of honesty.
However, despite the fact that no public
betting went on there was plenty of fun.
There were three events on the card, but tho
first was so stubbornly contested that darkness
arrived before a start could be made with the
third. Tbe first event, the 228 pace anply
repaid everybody for the money investedfin
admission fees. It was a tough fight from ihe
word "ge" in every heat The race- was also
FULL OF SUBPBISES, ?
and several times the talent were very much at
sea. The winner turned up in a "green" horse
named Greenhorn. He is a speedy and, gener
ally speaking, a steady customer. Before the
race the talent never thought of him, and J he
was a surprise. Jung tiiero, a tocai norse,
owned by J. Z. T. Bobitzer, performed we3 in
the race, and at one time was a very dange ous
competitor. Sankey won the 2 45 "mixed"
race, but not until he had lost
the first heat which was won by Duke Hum
phrey. The Dnke is one of the good and lirely
sort, bnt a little too wild at times. In the lrst
and second beat yesterday he went well, atd it
is probable he will develop into a very usiful
racer. Sankey. however, was too speedy for his
opponents after he got settled down to his salt.
The judging and starting were satisfactorynd
"Donble X" was again on hand with his pro
gramme and bright colors for the drivers. J
Five starters responded to the bell for the
228 pace. They were: Donald B, Monroe Bris
ter, Sam N, King Hiero and Greenhjrn.
Hierohadtbe pole, with Blister second. Sim
N third, Donald B fourth and Greenhon'on
the outside. Thev got the word intheirst
heat to a good send-off, Sam N, Greenhorn and
King Hiero leading in tbe order named to the
quarter. At the half Greenhorn was a length
in front of Sam. and on tbe lower turn Green
horn went up. He was soon down again, ind
going up the backstretch he got almost on eren
terms with Sam N, who was leading. Bound
ing the turn for the homestretch, Greenhirn
lapped Sam, and when the stretch was ente-ed
Sam broke, leavine Greenhorn to finish an eisy
winner. Time, 2.31.
Sam N won the second heat, Greenhcrn
breaking just as the word was given. SamN
led to the one-half with Brister at his whetl,
and the pair made a good race round the tun.
Coins up the backstretch Greenhorn collared
the leaders, bnt again broke badly on tha
homestretch and left Sam N a handy winne$
NOT A GOOD STAET.
Tbe start for the third heat was not a good
one, as Greenhorn was in the air when the
word was given and Sam N went np at the
quarter. The heat was now a fight between
Hiero, Donald and Brister. After passinc the
half Bnster's sulky strnck the fence and threw
the driver ont, bnt he was not hurt beyond a
shaking up. Hiero and Donald now fought it
out, and the Pittsburg horsa won a good heat
by a neck m 2.3
Greenhorn got down to a steady gait in the
fourth beat, although Hiero went away with a
creat burst ot speed, and kept it up to the
quarter with Donald close up and SamN and
Monroe Brister were beaten. At the half the
three leaders were almost neck and neck, and
so they remained until fairly into the back
stretch, where a blanket would have covered
all three. The race was a pretty one and was
cheered. Hiero kept his nose In front until
rounding the turn, where Greenhorn got
slightly in front Ho held the lead to tbe wire,
after a desperate race. Sam N and Monroe
Brister were distanced. Time, 2.34.
Greenhorn won the fifth heat easily, leading
from start to finish. Time, 2 34.

backstretch. They remained in this order to
the half, and going up to the backstretch Inie
and Sankey were lapped. Here Humphrey,
who was lengths behind, made a tremendous
spurt and closed up the big gap on rounding
the turn. Sankey broke on the turn, and
Humphrey won handily In 2 42.

GOOD SPORT AT GKAYESEND.
Come-To-Tnw Wins the Brookwood Hnndl
enp After n Great Race.
Gbavesend. September 28. Beautiful In
dian summer weather, an excellent programme,
a large and fashionable attendance and some
very exciting finishes wero the features of the
day at Gravesend. Tbe number of contestants
in each race was in striking contrast to the
small fields of yesterday and the day previous.
The stake events were the Holly and the
Brookwood handicaps. The former was for 2-year-olds,
and was worth about 52,600 to the
Senator Hearst captured the prize with Tourna
ment. His other entry, llallarat carried the
stable money. The victorv brought with it disap-
E ointment however, as the stable had plunged on
allarat and Tournament was allowed to ruu
wltb odds of 15 to 1 against blm.
Longstrect received a special preparation for
the Brookwood handicap, as did Come-fo-raw.
There was not much dlfierence In the odds, nor
was there at the finish. Garrison and Murphy
never rode more desperately thin they did in this
race. It was a fight between King's, and Garri
son's victory, though not entirely a popular one,
was well earned.

THE COUNTY LEAGUE.
A Few Kemnrka About the Close Struggle
for tbe Pennnnt.
It may be. interesting to note that a very ex
citing struggle is going on for the County
League pennant A correspondent writes to
this paper on that subject as follows-
While all the baseball cranks in this vicinity
are watching the closeness of the National
League race with so much interest the close
fight for the Allegheny Connty League
pennant should not be overlooked. The race
13 so close between the McKeesports and the
Last End Athletics that the pennant winner
will be decided by tbe game between these two
clubs at Liberty Park next Saturday, October
& The East End Athletics have a slight lead
over tbeir rivals, having won the same number
of games and lost one less, and the chances are
slightly in the final contest as tbe game will be
on their own grounds.
The rivalry between the Athletics and Mc
Keesports has been very bitter all season, and
each team is determined to put forth their
best efforts to win, as the Connty Lcagne
pennant is not only at stake, but the honor of
contesting with the Allegheny League team
for the local championship.
DOUBLE UMPIRES NEXT YEAR.
President Young Says Their Appointment
Will he a Necessity.
tSFXCIAL TELXGBJLM TO THE DISPATCH. 1
Washington, September 28. "After the
grievances of the Brotherhood are settled
there will be double umpires," says President
Nick Young. "This will entail an additional
expense, but the trials given this scheme have
demonstrated tbat it is popular. It will be an
object to get good men for these positions, but
in all fairness I do not think it will pay to have
one man selected to umpire games on the home
grounds, as experience has proved that such a
coarse retards rather than advances tbe na
tional pastime. I do not anticipate tbat there
will be any concerted 'action in 1890 by club
managers in tbe interest of applicants lor um
pires' places. There is considerable speculation
to the legality of a game played at Boston on,
the 10th instant, between tbe Chlcagos
and Bostons, and I have been appealed to for a
decision as to whether or not it was scheduled
game. According to tbe statement submitted
to me the game was called at 2 o'clock in tbe
afternoon, and 13 innings were necessary to de
cide tbe contest A second game was to have
been played, but darkness interfered and
caused a postponement and this has given rise
to a dispute as to the game which was begun
early in tbe afternoon. My reply was: "Con
sult the rules.'
"The bottom seems to have dropped out of
the Brotherhood fake, and it is not likely that
we will bear any more on the subject until tbe

Chicago, September 28. Chairman Spald
ing, ot the National League, to-day made pub-,
lie a letter written by him yesterday to John M.
Ward, President of tbe Baseball Players'
Brotherhood, offering to meet tbe Grievance
Committee of the players. President Ward's
reply written to-day is also given ont
It says the Grievance Committee was ap

So far Kentucky Prince's 2.30 performers are
"square" trotters only, but "Knap" McCarthy
has lately added to bis string a fast young
pacing eeldins by tbe premier at Stony Ford,
dambyBiggard's Rattler. This yonng horse
was bred by James H. Temnle and sold bv auc
tion at bis clearing-out sale in this city before
his removal to Pittsburg. The purchaser was
Peter Mclntyre, of Norwich, Conn. Horseman.
Ed Annan has won nearly all tbe 2:17 class
pacing races of the Grand Circuit this season,
and still remains in the 2.17 class. This is a rare
occurrence. A Grand Circuit winner of two
or three races in a class below 220 usually
finishes as a free for alter. There are tbree or
four horses in Annan's class that can beat him
in straight heats, but none can outlast him.
He is pwned by Major Dickenson, of New
York, and held bis record ot 2.17. made at St
Louis, October 6, 1887, until tbe meotlng at
Hartford, when he had to pace a heat in 2J
Kit Carry has proved herself a somowhat
similar performer at the trotting gait Sorte
tnan There are strange events happen at race
meetings sometimes. When Victor won at
Santa Rosa recently, Andy McDowell had been
backing one of the other horses in the race, not
thinking tbat Victor could win. When re
quested to take the reins in the fifth heat he
did so, and won with tbe Hayseed horse in
tbree straight heats, but he lost his money and
was in tho box, all the same. Two weeks ago
at Oakland tbe same thing was repeated. Andy
was np behind Direct and Johnny Goldsmith
was backing tbe black colt when he was re-
3 nested to take the seat behind ictor. Johnny
rove tbe race out and Victor won, but as in
Andy's case, he lost money by winning. We
wonder how many of tbe drivers throughout
tbe country would have done the same thing.
