Into history with
Scranton iu fourth
plnee by a very nar
row margin. While
it should have fin
ished better, it is
now tea late for un
as freia present in
will cuntiuus in tbe SsUte loague,
Manager Swift should tur himself
resolutely to the task of strengthening
the weak spots of the team.
That Scranton hae fiaUaed in fonrth
place is due primarily to the remarka
ble pitebiuK at llousoa, who has cur
ried the elub upward in the face of
what at timet was very disaonraginii
eircumtUneei. During the past month
Flanagbau has been in good form and
pitched a very flee article of tall, bnt
bus net bteu so fortunate in the intter
of support as HoJsoo. Ia the gauiee
that are played eat of the city there
are ntuutrs of the team who appar
ently uinkc little effort to support
him which is enough to discour
age the most nervy pitcher,
in the busiueis. After the club re
turned from its first trip of the tsseou
Manager Swift gave at one of the
reasons for its disastrous tumble to the
foot ef the league column, that etrtain
m tubers of the team, who usually
pluji a brilliant game at home,
seemed to allow their ginger aitJ en
thusiasm to ocz out of them as soon
as they left the city ens' lest games ly
indifference and allowing themrelve
to become rattled daring the critical
inementsof rhe game.
VERS SLATED FOR P.KL11SK.
These Men were el the time slated
for release, but seem snbs-quently to
have mads then: peace with Manager
Swift, although the reports from the
towns where the club has since played
shows that the indifferent and rattle
headed work did not end.
During the firtt season Manager
Swift has had ample epportunity to
know all the weak poiuti iu his team,
and of course knows just what should
be done to strcugtaea it. One more
first elate piteuer is aa absolute uss
sity. A week ago Mr. Swift said that
he would have a good Southern league
twirler signed for the opminir
of the second season. It U
to be hoped the new man will come Bp
to txpteutious. Let Mr. Swift have
full swar at this critical point wbeu be
is receiving so uQeh free advice con
cerning who he should release and who
he ebould sign. He bett knows where
to apply tLe pruning knife, and if nec
essary should ute it fearlessly with an
eye siavle to the improvement of the
Tue pace for the scceod season prom
ises to be swifter than daring the first.
All of the clues except Al toons have
been etrengtbencd since the fpsDioar of
the first lesson and Philadelphia,
which replaces Isnon, will aoques
tionably be represented by a elub that
will tuke a prominent position in the
league race. Yesterday's Philadelphia
Inquirer has the following to say about
the new club:
THAT PHILADELPHIA CIXB.
The circuit of the Pennsylvania State
league has been completed by the admis
sion of a new club in this city, wbieh is to
be known as the Philadelphia State
League club. It is ia no way connected
with the local National League club, al
though the new "Phillies" will play on
the grounds at Broad and liuncuigton
streets through the courtesy of Messrs.
Keash and Rogen.
The new ciub was organized on Friday
night with James F. Boyle aa president,
IVashiapton Hillegas, treasurer, and
James H. Kendall, secretary Mid man
ager. Application for membership was
made to the State league, and a vote was
taken by wire yesterday, which was unan
imously in favor ef the admission of this
city. The new club will take Easton's
pines and will play out its schedule.
As the second championship season of
the State league begins tomorrow the
managers of the new club decided to plnee
n team in tbe field at enee, and the open
leg frame will be played at Broad and
liuutiagton strtets tomorrow with the
strong Scranton club. lUnater Kendall
was buttling rter players all day yester
day mid lnt sight, and he expects to place
a good team in the held. He has arranged
with the Philadelphia Natioaal League
elub for the services of Charley Koilly,
Turner, Pitcher Callihan aud all otiior
players when they are not needed bv their
tiwn club. Heilly, (.'allium and Turner
will net be able to play toiaorrow, ae they
are iu the west with the Phillies.
SOMi OF THE PLAYERS.
SJanager Randall wired an offer to Peto
Browning, who has been released by Al

Tug Tkiddmg's tip of Johnny or Jack
to win the 2 00 event wasreeeived with
smiles by readers Saturday morning,
yet Johnny won the first best by two
opn lengths and was not headed once.
If his councilmsnis owner and driver
had not txied to urge Johnny in the
second heat, he might have won or at
least done better than third. The time
of thirty-eight and tbirty-niue seconds
for the first and secoud quarters shows
what a bruising pan it was. At the

more eligible to the road wagon race
than rapid company in the 2.40 class,
