Providence. R. I., Aug. 6.-Provldence

game. The home batsmen pounded

Inning, when the home team batted out
three additional runs and when they
nail taken their last turn at bat they
had. a lead of six runs. That lead did
not look so big after the Buffalos got
started In their last turn at bat. Field
got a hit and Lewee banged the ball
over the fence ror a nome run. -i nen
with twn nut. the bases were filled and
another homer would have tied the
core, but Clymer struck out and the

weeks and Including the two games won
from Rochester on Monday the record Is
ten games won out of tho last fourteen

WUh Toronto here for three days, be
ginning today. It -Is not unreasonable to
predict that Scranton will capture two of
the three games and that Buffalo will lose
the same number at Wllkes-Barre. If
such Is the case Scranton will have an
opportunity to come within four points of
Buffalo by taking two of the three games
that we begin playing with that club on
Saturday. If this calculation does not ko
amiss the Scran tons will , beat their best
previous record and win the approbation of
many, including a few who just now are
sulking because their views are not met
by the management.
Schrlever will make his second bow to
the Scranton bose ball public In today's
game against Toronto. He will catch, and
Luby will bo in the box. Sweeney, the
new shortstop, will also be In the game
and Tommy Bannon will return to his reg
ular position In center field. Smith will
play in rlg'ht field. This arrangement
gives each player a regular position and In
future will not make -it necessary to put
the pitchers In the game except to pitch.
and unless some accident befalls the trio
of twlrlers the club from now on should
put up a game stronger than at any pre
vious time this season. This hinges, of
course, upon the ability of Schrlever and
Sweeney to do what la expected of them,
but there la little or no anxiety on tticir
account, as they are both competent and
suited to their respective positions.
There has been a monkey and parrot rime
In Wllkes-Barre between the players and
management. Tho trouble had been long
brewing, but was brought to a head a
few days ago by a failure to pay salaries
on the appointed day. The Wllkes-Barre
asftortat'.on is. In no way afflicted by a
financial shortage, but the players say
inesr cnocxa were marie out and for sev
eral days denied them through the Influ
ence of some ofllcial who wished to be
spiteful. Some of the players retaliated
by Indulging (n much strong drink and
others kept late hours, until Monday after
the mgged showing against Syracuse.

The Steel Steed Adopted for Useful
The very latest development of the
cycle Idea, says the Philadelphia Rec
ord, is an ambulance for use In cities,
which is the Invention of Dr. Hoenlz,
of Berlin. The doctor styles his ma
chine a velocipede, on account of Its
softness and mode of locomotion. It
has been adopted by the great hos
pitals and also by the sanitary com
the German capital. The
latter superintend "stations" In every
part of the city, where victims or ac
cident receive preliminary treatment at
tha h ii mis of Dhvsiclans. A velocipede
ambulance la attached to every one of
the stations, and experience proves u 10
be for superior to the ordinary horse
ambulance heretofore used.
Its construction Is as follows: A lit
ter without shafts, supported by three
wheels with rubber tires, one In front
and two behind, the whole being pro
pelled and driven 'by .bicyclists fore and
aft. The occupant of the first directs
the vehicle and rings the bell to warn
other wheelmen and vehicles, The man
aft follows suit. The machine moves
very swiftly, and up to date not a sin
gle accident has been recorded. The Ut
ter had a detachable cover of white
duck with windows at the sides. It Is
nmii ventilated and at night is lit by
electricity. If the person transported
wants to attract the attention or me Bi
cyclists he rings ar.ectrlc bell. The
litter can be taken ME the wheels and
carried Into the house or to the spot
where the sick person awaits -it. Al
though the emperor is opposed to the
bicycle In the army he is very favorably

ENGLISH COACH'S OPINION.
Says Cornell Was Overtrained and Thinks
tho America's Cup Will Stay Here.
J. E. Stlllwell, one of England's fore
most oarsmtn and a famous coocher
and authority In aquatic matters, says
the Philadelphia Press, Is In New York.
Five years ago he was the captain of
the London Bowing club, and Is now
looked upon as the "Captain Cook" of
English rowers and scullers. He heart
ily approves International racing be
tween college crews, such as waa seen
at Henley. . ...
"I have attended all the Henleyt re
gattas," he said, while waiting to have
his baggage Inspected, "but this year
the attendance and interest excited
were greater than in any previous year.
Oarsmen and lovers of rowing came
from all parts of the world where sports
Mr. Stllwell was asked what tie
thought of the defeat of the Cornell
crew and the criticism of Courtney.
"I consider Courtney a competent
man,", he replied, 'and the criticisms of
his methods of training I think were a
little unjust. You see," he went on,
"when a crew 1s defeated there Is al
ways the Inevitable excuse, and It hap
pened to be the trainer thla time. If
the Cornell crew had rowed a week be
fore they did they might have carried
off the prize, as I think they were over
trained a trifle, and the climate did It."
iMr. fStllwell said that he hardly
thought It likely English crews would
come to America. (Most of the members
had their business affairs to attend to
and could hardly lose the time. Again,
tney would have to take chances with
a strange climate.
In regard to yachting matters, the
English athlete said that while he
fondly hoped otherwise, he did not be
lieve the cup would leave these shores
wis year. The best-Informed English
yachtsmen, he said, were not over-
hopeful of the coming , eontert. "A
strange country Is bad for man or
beast In a contest," he went on. "You
might say the' same applies to a racing
craft In strange waters."

Richard Bland Knocks Out th Gold Mn
and Ran the Party Machine.
Pertle Springs, Mo., Aug. 6. In the
presence of 2,6(10 people, 514 of whom
were delegates, the Democratic party
of Missouri In convention here today
committed Itself to the principle of the
free coinage of silver at the ratio of 16
to 1, and reorganized the state central
committee so as to place the party ma
chinery entirely out of the control of
the gold men. "Silver Dick" Bland
dominated the gathering completely.
(He was temporary and permanent
chairman, and In opening Uie conven
tion stated deliberately that the time
had come for the sliver men to assume
control of the party machinery and run
rt with a vlow of accomplishing their
ends. Bland's Idea of reorganization
Is looked upon as bad politics, and It
was a terrible slash at the old state
central committee which was the Maf-flt-Francis
The relations between the turned-
down committeemen and their party
colleagues are so strained that In the
coming campaign, if conducted on a
free silver 1)ais. they will practically be
without party alliances. Bland's fight
was won after a bitter caucus with Sen
ator Cockrell, Governor Stone and other
prominent leaders, who counselled com
promise.' The delegates were with him
and his programme was enthusiastic
ally'carried out. The convention was
noticeable for lack of speechmaklng.

KOhert Plerson, arranged to take place
in tne Jail at Covington. Ky., this after
noon, was postponed. It was Intended
to 'baptize Plerson In one of the large
bath tubs df the police department, but
some humorous suggestions that
reached the ears of the Christian En
deavor evangelists made them conclude
that the ceremony, according to the
arrangements made, would lack the
dignity that should attend so solemn a
rite, and they postponed It.
They talk of aipplylng to the United
