flaranton Could Not Hit the Sphere at the
Scranton lost another game at the
park because a hit could not be made
When it meant runs. It was in the
ninth inning, the score was 8 to 5 in
favor of Providence and Scranton bad
three men on bases, fingers was tbe
batsman and tbe 111 spectators urged
him in many different keys to hit it
He did so, but tbe blow was deliv
ered in suoh a way that the ball went
into tbe air and came down directly in
tbe bands of Centerfielder Murray. A
variety of groans followed, and the
111 enthnsiasts dispersed.
That was not tbe only opportunity
we had of winning the game. If Hess
had not dropped a fly in tbe field; if
Lehane bad spnrted a little when run
ning from first to second in the eighth,
or bad Hess been able to find tbe ball
in the same inninir, the result would
wonld have been different
Scranton could not bat with any
thing like timeliness as sixteen men
left on bases eloquently demontrates.
Delaney did some splendid work with
tbe stick. He made a hit every time
be went to bat having a total of four
singles and a double.
The first four innings were played
with vim and spirit. Then tbe rain
began to fall and after it had eeased to
some extent play was resumed.
Delaney, however, had lost control
of the ball and tbe Providence boys
found him for seven singles in tbe fifth
inning. He also gave a base of bails.
Six runs for Providence was tbe result.
Toey did not score afterwards but they
had enough. Detailed score:

tbe game to the Philadelphia club.
VON OCR AHt CUTTING DOWN.
The Dialogue That Preoidid Brslt.n
St. Louis, Sept. 13. President Von
der Abe emitted cry of anguish dar
ing the seoond inning of the second
gamexm Monday. Clark-son had been
unable to withstand tbe assault of the
BrooUynsAn4 Hawley bad justaicend-
ed majestically into the air. After tbe
wall bad been caught by a passing
xspbyr and wafted over against right
field fence, Der Boss recovered snf
fielsntly to institute still hunt for bis
little south paw, who bad just won tbe
first game. - Breitenstein, after polish
ing off Fontz's Fairies, bad, supposing
his afternoon's work was completed,
bathed and donned bis everyday
clothes. "Brelt" was discovered to tbe
magnate, who, perceiving that he had
doffed his uniform, puffed op with
anger and would not down.
"Why did you take oft yonr uniform,
hub?" inquired Mr. Von dr Ahe, get
ting an opening for his mill ad feelings.
"'Cause I thought I whs through,"
ssid Briet, nervously bitting bis finger
nails in anticipation of the germinating
"Did I tell you that you were
through!" said Der Boss, with difficulty
restraining himself. Mr. Von der Abe
took occasion to look around him.
Seeing that a sufficient number of
spectators had deserted tbe ball game
for tbe new entertainment, he again
faced tbe culprit, who had deferentially
removed his hat, aud was lalowly, but
surely, removing tbe riiu. "Well, den,
ged bask to yonr dressing-room, right
avay, undt ged your snit on. You goo t
to pitch dis game out."
"But, Mr. Von der Ahe, I've pitched
my game and won it. Don't you think
that is enough for one day? I pitched
"Not if I want yon to pitch two
games," and he looked like tbe villain
who bad just laid tbe heroine across
tbe rsilroad track in the play. Despair
nerved tbe great south paw as the
words slowly issued from the magnate.
A sinister smile ptayed fitfully upder
tbe beet-colored projection which
deoorates the Browu Stookiug presi
Breitenstein pondered on tbe hard
work he had done on tbe just ended
trip, and bis spirit rebelled. He flatly
refused to pitch the second game, Ills
good left was his salary drawing ap
paratus, and, in fact, was his stock in
trade. It was a duty he owed himself
to protect it to some extent. Von der
Abe viewed him with unbelieving
eyes, bnt recovered enough to fine
Breitenstein f 100 and suspend bim in
definitely. . Hawley pitched out 'the
uLINTS FROM THE DIAMOND.
There will not be a game at the park
this afternoon, but tomorrow the Scranton
and Providence clubs will again pi ay,
Patchen's hard work behind the bat
during tbe season is telling on bim. He
can no longer bat or throw to bases in his
old time form,
The Hustlers cannot play the Sunset
Juuiors, of Archbald, on Sept. 14, but
would like to play them on Sept. 23 or 24
on the Arcbbnld grounds. Answer iu to
Somebody wants Von der Abe to secure
Umpire Tim Hurst to manage the St.
Louis Browns next year. Should tbe com
bination be formed a verbatim report of
the first diBagreemeut between Cu.isand
Tim will be starting, if not st-nsatlonal.
Brooklyn Eagle." Manager Cahill, of tbe
Scranton olub, may be iu command of the
Browns next seoson.
Catcher Donohue, of the Kansas City
team, has broken the catciiiug record
heretofore held by Zimmer. Up to Aug.
28 he bad caught 126 consecutive games,
and never miused an inning of one of the
games. He promises to finish the season
behind the bat, something no other
catcher baa done since the days of over
hand pitching. New York Herald.
Tbe Boston Qlobe says: "All of the
eastern clubs of the National lengue will
make good money this season. It is safe
to say that New York and Philadelphia
will clear from 50,0UO to $75,000 each, and
Baltimore not far from tbe last figure.
Brooklyn has done well, and Washington
extremely so with a cheap team. The
Boston club will certainly clear over $30,
000 on tbelr investment, with a good
chance of getting back the money they
sunk in the New York club in 1890. Tbe
west has made very little money outside of
Chicago and Cincinnati."
While Dan Bronthers does not stand
near tbe top in tbe batting list, there ia
one Important thing that Is very gener
ally overlooked by those who are anxions
to have bim regarded as a "has been."
When all the rest of the team are batting
like fiends, it will be noticed tbat Dan's
bits are few and far between. But Den
nis' bits are tbe timely ones that come in
close games when the othbrs are being
fooled, and when hits are sadly needed.
And they generally come when men are
on bases and bring in runs tbat are badly
Here is what a Syracuse paper has to
say: "King Kelly and his aggregation did
not appear in Erie in time for a postponed
game, and the game was given to Erie.
This is a rank injustice to Syracuse, who
are fighting bard to win second place over
Erie. Scranton, througb a drunken um
pire, stole two games and now, througb a
blunder or collusion Erie is given tbe ad
vantage of still another game over Syra
cuse. This makes three games in all.
Now, it is a little singular that all three of
the clubs engaged in the affair are from
Pennsylvania. Is Pennsylvania engaged
in a conspiracy to beat New York out of
second place!" It might be as well for the
Syracuse newspapers to keep reasonably
close to the truth. There is no conspiracy
on the part of Pennsylvania clubs to pre
vent Syracuse from finishing in second
place, neither was the Stars robbed of two
games in this city by a "drunken umpire,"
a raot wbicb Ruffianly Sandy GriQlu and
bis players well know.
