the possibility of one if not both of

good work, if not beinsr compelled to

we are least likely to be able to cope

Hazlf.ton, July 13 The Hazleton
club suffered another defeat from
Soranton on Saturday, making the

Flanaghaa and Fee were the pitcliera,
mil the long, solemo-visaged youth

hits were needed and meant runs for
the home club, Flannghan exercised
some of his cunning aud the longed for

Pottsville Miners' Journal.
Manager Swift, of the Scranton club, on
Saturday at Hazleton came to terms with
Yerkes, who bus been one of the pitchers
nf the Shennndi'ah cinb. Ho is of the
Flaiiahau build and is said to possess
great speed nnd good curves. Ho Is ex
pected to report iu the city today and may
lie given au opportunity to distinguish
himsolf in tomorrow's game.
Tho wonderful work of Pitcher Wilson,
of Pottsville, is being watched by the Na
tional league dubs ail over tho country.
He undoubtedly comes near heading the
State league' lut cf pitchers and a num
ber of good offers havo been made for his
release. Cleveland would like very much
to have him, but there is a strong opposi
tion upon the part of the Pottsville board
of directors aud the manager toward let
ting him go.
McAleer of the Cleveland club has
returned to his borne after mak
ing a tour of the Stato league cities trying
to locate talent for his club. He has, it is
raid, made arrangements with Pitchers
Wilsju, of Pottsvillo; Moany, of Harris
burg, aud Hudson of this city to don Cleve
land uniforms next year. McAleer
watched tho work of Eagau and Wright
of Harrisburg und Hogun of this city with
a critical eye. It is altogether probable
Mint the latter will be a member of the
Cleveluud club next season.
A sensation was created In Pittsburg
bBe ball circles Saturday night by tho re
lease of thrue players ono of whom goes to
Philadelphia. A few days ago Pitcher
Fanning, of New Orleaus, was signed, but
today he was released. Manager Irwin
arranged that Fanning should be turned
oyer to Philadelphia. Jack Faston. who
pitcnea turee losing games, also walks tue
piank; but the greatest surprise of all is
the release of Sclieibeck, the utility man,
who has been playing short during Ulass
cock's disability. The latter will be out of
harness for some days yet and the crunks
wonder who will play short. The move is
made to cut dowu expenses.
Cautain Richard Phelan said vesterrtav
that the members of the Scranton club
felt that they should have won five out of
six games they played while away from
the city. Tbe second Philadelphia game
was lost through an error, aud the first
game at Allentown by the umpire, who
ton club plays fourteen games at home
now and Captain Phelan is coulldout that
it will be up at tha bead of tbe procossion
by the time these games are disposed of.
He is of tho opinion that the State league
pitcher are better tbau those in the E.-tst-0111
league. The way tho local players
opened up ou Pitcher Taylor iu th flrBt
Philadelphia game caused that young man
to leave the box in great haste, Phelan

Tbe second meeting of the Gentle
men' Driving club, held Saturday at
the Driving park, was attended by
about 700 persons. The different events
had tilled well and many of tbe beats
were productive of close and exciting
liuishes. J. R, Meats officiated as
starter and J. W. Garnoy and Mr.
llntohlrn, of Jennyn, us judges.
Tbe mule race, participated in by a
number of gentlemen drivers, was, tb
opening veut, and proved a great
source of amusement. It is a question
whether John Fritz or Walter Jerruyn,
with both their loug-enred steeds on a
dead run, reached the wire first; bnt
this ciroumstanoe did not change the
result, as Frank Spener, who finithol
next to last, was given the huge gold
(!) medal because ills animal made the
circuit without breaking. Councilman
Sshadt made a bid for the prizs nnd
caught the grand stand by jumping

AN EASY TRICK TOlt FlttU.
The first race might as well have
been a walkover for Fred, who won the
first heat without much trouble and
went the second heat under a strong
The wonl "go" was given in the sec
ond heat of the il-minute race, but Mr.
Payne with Duke, Mr. PaUrsou with
Frank S, aud two others only accepted
the signal. Duke reachtd the wire
first ami the judges decided that the
heat Rhould be trotted over agaiu.
This did not affect the general result.
If th judge had been more ulert C.
II. Shadl's Johnny would hav been
placed first in the second heat of the
2 35 race. Dr. G. E. Hill'f John was
plainly run completed around the last
turn, passing Johnny and Mr. Patter
son's Farmer Ltoy. The latter was thsu
put into a run utitil he had overtaken
John iu the stretoh where the two fin
ished with Farmer Boy ahead by only
a nose. These particulars wro uot no
ticed by th judges.
Mr. Paterson's Nellie B had to re
turn in the last race tbe laurels eh
took from Dr. Charles IliU'g Jim
Mears the week previous. Th time
made in the two last heats shows what
the gray gelding is capable of doiug,
While th races were enjoyed by tbe
spectators generally, the method pur
sued in starting a heat with two or
more horses ahead of the pole horse or
with a borse a good as left at the
post, were quite properly criticised.
