Tho Buffalo Team Makes a Clown of
Curapflcld, of Wllkes-Barre.
Buffalo, May 12. The Eastern league
season was opened at Franklin park
today with a game between Buffalo and
WUkes-Barre. The home team had on
Its batting clothes and the way Camp
field's delivery was banged was a circus
Indeed. The first ball pitched was sent
over the fence by Bottenus. Field fol
lowed with a two-bagger and then the
side was retired. The visitors got
seven runs in the first and second Inn
ings, and then could not score again
until the fifth, when dlerndon's wlld
ness filled the bases, after which Dan
Shannon rapped out a homer, bringing
In four men. The feature of the day
was the magnificent stick work of Bot
tenus, who, out of Ave times at bat,
knocked out four home runs, all over
the fence and two over a house one
eighth of a mile away, and one two
bagger. The home team played a pret
ty fielding; game and the visitors also
did well in this respect, but the drives
were mostly so long and hot that It
was Impossible to handle them. Uot
tenus earned a batting average of 1,000
and broke the record for base running,
making eighteen bases in seven Inn
ings. The thermometer registered about
40 and 2,500 people witnessed the game.

Rochester, May 12. The visitors
played an uphill game here today,
which they finally won by persistent
batting and timely base running. The
weather was chilly, and until the fifth

their work. Rochester let In four runs

virtue of a base on balls, a brace of

good until Rochester's half of the Inn

The Wllkes-Barra correspondent of
Sporting Llfo speaks of his own olty as
follows: "This town has the reputation
of having the toughest base ball audiences
of any town In the league, and some go so
far as to say In the United States. There
is no doubt but that opinion Is well
grounded, and Justified by those who have
heard the language hurled at the players
from the bleachers and sometimes even
from tho grand stand. After winning the
first three close and well played games of
the present season the team lost the
fourth, and for so doing were assailed with
the vilest epithets from the bleachers.
Just such language had much to do with
the demoralization of the team last sea
son. It Is said that there are any number
of ball players who would not play ball In
this town at all, because of the roasting
the press and patrons give a player when
he makes an error, and this even after a
long stretch of perfect fielding."

eastern Pennsylvania Champion, and
Mike Leonard, of Brooklyn, Will Spar
Six Hounds in the Frothingham Theater.
Other Contests Arranged.
An event that la awaited wliUi much
Interest and promises to attract a

that will be given ithls evening at the
Frothingham theater, when among
other numbers on the programme there
will be a special 6-round bout between

and Miko Leonard, of Brooklyn. Judge
has a long etrlng of victories and
Leonard has a wide reputation as one
of the most clever lightweights of the
ring. In thle bout the spectators will
be rewarded with entertainment alone
well worth the price of admission.
There will be nothing brutal in their
oontest, but each will do his utmost to
win the award of the referee for the
most scientific showing. Leonard has
a magnificent physique and Is In first
class trim; he wll weight 132 pounds In
the ring this evening. Judge Is train
ing hard and In fine fettle. He will tip
the scales a little heavier than 135
pounds. The mooting between them
will be ttlve last number on the pro

rounds. The third will be a go be
tween Toby Gardner, of the South Side,

pound class.
Next will be a battla royal among
five colored men, who will fight among
themselves, and the man who stands up
the longest will receive a cake and a
$20-gold-pler.e. This will be a most
laughable and amusing spectacle. Pad
dy Gorman, of Brooklyn. and Tom
Denny, of Australia, will spar at 118
pound weight each, and will show the
siectatoirs what gvwd, lively scientific
sparring Is like. Then will come the
bout of the evening between Judge and
Leonard. Each round will lost three
minutes with one minute rest between
William Gllmartm, of New York, an
experienced man in this line who has
a widespread reputation for fairness,
will act as referee, and the time-keepers

versary of the Simpson Epworth
League Tramp to Bald Mount.
The West Bide Interests of The Tribune
have been placed In the hands of Emor
son Owen, to whom all nows announce
ments and complaints may be addressed.
A good story Is told at the expense of
Paitrolman Matthews. As two of our
prominent young men, Jonathan Har
ris and Evan Jones, were returning to
their homos one night last week, they
were met on South Main avenue, near
Hampton street, by an excited woman,
who was running up the avenue. She
Informed them ithat a police officer was
needed to remove a suspicious charac
ter who was prowling about the prem
ises of Rueben Brown, of Ninth street.
Mr. Brown is 111 and was unable to act
against the marauder.
Armed with a long stick and a
weighty cobble, the young men accom
panied the woman, who provod to be
Mrs. Brown, to her home. A dark ob
ject was pointed out, at the foot of a
pair of steps, approaching the rear
cellarway. Harris, who carried the
club, led the attack; Jones bringing up
the rear with the cobble. First a
match was lit, but this went out. Then
a lamp was produced and Harris ap
proached the black spot, and in an
Ethan Allen voice commanded, "Hands
up." At this a vicious looking tramp
grumbled out an excuse for being
where he was and Immediately stuck
out both hands, saying: "Well, you
have the law on your side." The two
young men escorted the itrnmp up
Hampton street, one on each side; Har
ris wl'th Ms club and Jones with his
cobble, and the tramp with both hands
In a petrified vertlcle position.
When Main avenue was reached a
surprise awaited the captors. The trio
were on their way to ithe West Side po
lice station, but when opposite 'the
store of D. D. Evans, on South Main
avenue, Patrolman Matthews stepped
ouit of the doorway and carelessly took
charge of the prisoner. Harris and
Jones began to tell where they had
found ithe man, but the guardian of the
law said: "Oh! that's all right; I knew
about it; I heard your conversation
with the woman." He had been stand
ing In the doorway for a half hour
awaiting the return of the young men.
He had heard 'Mrs. Brown ask for an
officer, but he kept out of sight.

Central mine, five years ago. About
one year ago he visited Buffalo, Balti

upon returning home decided upon a
style which is the perfection of those he
has seen, with the addltlonul original

the :crxon fended.
Mr. Casey's machine somewhat re

attached, and minus legs. Two perpen
dicular irons are to be fastened to tha
front of the car. From the bottom of
these supports, the fender proper pro

the front. Back of a wooden forepart

pieces of steel, formed as a paralello

Iron wheels to keep the fender at an
equal distance from the road at all
times. As tho cor bounds or Jumps tho
small fender wheels will strike the
rails, thus keeping the fender from
plowing the roadbed.

burn street. A patent has been applied
for and the Inventor Is anxiously await

Scott's Emulsion
is not a secret remedy. It is
simply the purest Norway Cod
liver Oil, the finest Hypophos
phites, and chemically pure Glyc
erine, all combined into a perfect
Emulsion so that it will never
change or lose it3 integrity.
This is the secret of Scott's
Emulsion's great success.
It is the happy combination of
these most valuable ingredients,
materially increasing their po
tency; hence the great value of
Scott's Emulsion in wasting dis
eases. We think people should
know what they are taking into
their stomachs.
