How the Games Were Worn
, In the first game Johnson was pitted
against Donoghue, who pitched the bet
ter game, but he was supported by
listless playing, and four of Rochester's
five errors contributed toward the run
getting. The result, however, Is not
alone due to Rochester's poor fielding,
but may be accounted for In part by
Scranton's hitting, when hits meant
runs. In only one Inning, the fourth,
did Scranton make a hit and fall to
score. Huston' and Ward, by their ac
ceptance of sixteen chances without
error, furnished the spirit of the play
H8. From the beginning. of the second
game Robertson was bombarded, and
the hitting was continued In every In
ning, except the third. He was wild as
a rabbit, and nearly all of his nine
gifts of first counted toward the runs.
For three innings only one hit was
made off Meaney, and then he let
down during the fourth and fifth In
nings, during which six hits for nine
bases and Huston's blind throw over
first netted four runs. Jn the last four
innings, however, onlj? two singles were
made off himl .,

Pitched Winning Ball for Syracuse
"Wllkes-Barre, Pa., Aug. 6. Betts was
hit very hard In the game between
Wllkes-Barre and Syracuse this after
noon, while .Delaney pitched a master
ful game for Syracuse, allowing but
Oaffney was to have umpired today,
but failed to receive notice to catch
the train, and Shannon and Kilroy did
ccceptable work In his place. Bonner
played second In place of Shannon, and
Irt the first Inning, with two out, muffed
an easy fly, after which two runs were
batted In. This work on his part
seemed to unnerve Betts and the whole
team, and thereafter It was a sleepy ex
hibition of ball playing. Weather, fine.

Providence, R. I., Aug. 5. Buffalo
earned another victory from the Provi
dence team today. Hod son, who fooled
them steadily on Friday, was batted
hard by the Bisons. Fields started the
fireworks In the second Inning with a
home run over the center field fence.
In the seventh Inning the home team
braced and on a streak of heavy bat
ting and dashing base running, aided
by Drauby's error, tied the score. But
the visitors went right In and pounded
the delivery of Hod son for three more
runs. The game had an exciting finish.

Luby's one-hand catch In the last game
was wonderful only because Luby didn't
know he had caught the ball until he saw
It resting In the hollow of his big glove.
It created no end of amusement among the
players, who afterward without mercy
guyed the big pitcher about it.

Some wretch Is at work on this side
killing valuable dogs by the use of
strychnine. Last week Photographer
Starner's canine iwas poisoned upon eat
ing a quantity of meat which had been
dosed with the deadly material. The
animal was saved by constant atten
tion during the whole of one night by
Undertaker W'ymbs lost a valuable
dng, death resulting from poison. Mr.
Trostel, the Jackson street meat man,
owned a dog, which was made the vic
tim of the soulless poisoners, and Lou
Bunnell's dog. for which the owner
refused an offer of $35 a few days ago,
died Sunday, after eating a (piece of
refuse meat. By the coincidence that
each animal had the some kind of
symptoms, and, also, that the ravages
are being committed In rapid succes
sion, Indicates that the same person or
persons are doing the nefarious work.
The owners of the unfortunate canines
are Justly vehement, and an effort Is
being made to root up the depredators.
The police are also on the" watch.
Shot at Pigeons.
Will James and Steve Soloskl shot a
match at pigeons yesterday on the
commons, near the old Ibrick yard, and
at Its conclusion each man had shot
seven birds, thus making a tie.' Eleven
pigeons were shot at by each contest
ant. James killed his first three and
Soloskl missed the same number. This
created odds In favor of James, but by
good headwork the other killed enough
of the remaining seven to make the tie.
Betting was fast and free, partly owing
to the recent pay days at the mines and
also because of the excitement and un
certainty of the match. Birds were bet
on singly, one man going two to one
on an Imported pigeon. James killed
it easily. Twenty-five dollars was the
stake. A crowd of 600 , persons wit
nessed the match.

and, as Crane's ball had run out, he was
re-arrested. At the second hearing.
Crane consented to pay the doctor's
bill and other costs. Crane Is a driver
for Casey Bros, and was passing near
Gammon's hill when a crowd of boys
Insulted Mm. He moved to scare them
and picked up the clay, throwing It at
the boy with the result stated.

MAY HAVE TO REFUND.
Food Inspector Thomas Receiving Money
Without Duo Warrant.
Food Inspector Richard Thomas may
be called upon to refund any money
that may have been paid Mm out of the
city treasury for the maintenance of his
horse, as the auditing committee of
councils last night concluded that he
was not warranted In receiving this
money. , ,
When the bill for the care and feed
ing of the food and milk inspector's
horse came up for consideration atten
tion was drawn to the fact that the or
dinance creating the office particularly
specified that the officer in question
should pay for the care of his horse out
of his salary. It appears, however, that
last year's estimate committee appro
priated something like 8260 for the care
and keeping of the Inspector's horse,
and out of this fund councils have been
monthly allowing him the cost of
maintaining tils horse.
The auditing committee last night re
fused to honor the bill and instructed
City Clerk Lavelle to examine previ
ous reports to ascertain how much has
been paid to the Inspector.
The committee also refused to pass
the bill for the services of Timothy La
velle, Inspector of Roaring Brook
bridge, as his appointment has not been
confirmed by councils.
MEXICAN EDITOR MURDERED.
Ills Body Found Literally Hacked to
Pieces Is a Deep Mystery.
City of Mexico, Aug. 6. The assassi
nation of Editor Olmos in the City of
Puebla has excited Intense Interest. It
Is now said that Olmos was suspected
of being the publisher, as well as edi
tor, of a mysterious weekly paper
called Voice of 'Puebla, which appeared
July 14, and In which the administra
tion of Governor Martinez was violent
ly attacked and his re-election hotly
opposed. The police made a search for
the publication office, but could find no
trace of it.
Genevieve Olmos, sister of the mur
dered editor, published a remarkable
letter today, In which she says she
found her brother almost literally
hacked to pieces, with many wounds
made by knives and daggers of vari
ous sizes. The blade of one dagger re
mained In the body with the handle
gone. Her brother's front teeth were
knocked out. She adds: "Up to this
moment I have not endeavored to In
quire into the murder, neither could
I do so with such immense grief weigh
ing on me. A rumor Is circulating that
the assassins of my unfortunate
brother belong to the secret police of
this city." Newspapers here are call
ing on the state government of Puebla
to enter at once on a minute Investiga
tion of this horrible crime.
COLONY PROVES A FAILURE.

Rockford Swedes who removed to

crop to return here.

DUPED : IN CHARITY'S -NAM-
Western People Listen to a False Appeal
to Halp Starving Kueslaaa.
Topeka. Kan., Aug. 6. During 4Aie
past month appetils. have been . mada
to Governor Morrill, of Kansas, and
governors of other states by people of
Ellis county for aid for the G00 starving
Russians of that county. These appeals
have described a condition of abject
poverty among the Russians, and they
were so touching that many charitable
people of the east contributed food and
clothing freely. The state officials sent
coal and provisions to Hayes City,
which they supposed had ministered to
the wants of the destitute.
To fully satisfy himself Governor
Morrill s?nt Railroad ' Commissioner
Howe to Ellis county to Investigate
fully. He returned tonight and reports
that the Russians are the most thrifty
people In Ellis county, and that 'the ap
peals for aid were sent out by men who
have profited from the sale of the pro
visions sent them by charitable people.
