The horses hitched outside the
grounds laughed yesterday during the
game won from Buffalo by the old
fashioned score of ) to IS. .Buffalo, too,
almost had a chance to laugh when, in
the eighth Inning, with Scranton fif
teen runs ahead. Manager Barnie gave
Nolan a trial in the box. The Bisons
didn't do a thing but get nine runs off
the unknown on live hits for eight
bases, three bases on balls, two bases
on hit by pitcher and an error by Ward.
It required two hours and twenty
minutes to finish the contest and when
the fifth inning was being played. To
ronto had beaten Wilkes-Barre. Com
paring the total runs and hits, the lat
ter were not numerous, hut the runs,
particularly those of Scranton, were as
sisted by the wild and untamed Buffalo
Scranton Eats Two Pitchers.
Each club tried three pitchers. For
four Innings Johnson pitched McGin
nls to a standstill and then the latter
was taken to the stables and Meekin
substituted. The change made no dif
ference to Scranton and Meekin was
forced to suffer a regular tatoo of all
kinds of hits and was worked for both
kinds of pitching errors.
So when Johnson complained of a
lame arm In the eigth and Scranton
had fifteen velvet -Manager Barnle
' yielded to requests that Nolan be
' given a trial. The change almost
cost ScrarrBon the game. Nolan
is a young man of engaging man
ner and a sylph-llke presence,
ati that Is' ail 'that can be said In
his favor after he went m to pitch;
at least he couldn't be seen with a
microscope after the Inning had ended.
A total of twelve Buffalo sluggers
faced him and Incidentally touched up
the easy ycur.tr man for a triple, a
double and three singles, and got three
runners to flrst on pitching errors.
When the carnage had ended Scranton
was only sir instead of fifteen runs
Meekin was sent to right field in the
eighth in place of Shearon, who went
Into the box and distinguished himself
by giving the first three batsmen walks
to flrst and striking out Bannon, the
next one up. Meaney went In for
Soranton In the ninth and struck two
men out but permitted three runs on a
base on balls, two singles and a dou

Wl'kes-Barre,; Aug.'.13.-Toronl won a
game today from Wllkes-Barr,, whlih,
. barring l.esotte's costly error, was onn of
the snappiest contests of the season.. Both
pitchers were In magnificent form and
good fielding and accurate throwing was
the order of the day.

. gave Toronto one In the first, while In the
second Bhlnnick reached first on four balls

Yesterday's games made a decided
difference In the race for the National
league pennant. Although Pittsburg
won, Baltimore took two games from
Boston and goes ahead of 'Pittsburg and
Into second position, only thirteen
points behind the Clevelands. Boston
still holds fourth place, but the slump
caused by the two games lost to Balti
more givps Chicago a chance to go a
notch higher today. New York and
Brooklyn were both beaten and remain
tied in eighth place.

AN EABLY 1896 RUMOR,
Offar Mado to Put Buffalo In tba Na
Tho following dispatch regarding the
transfer of the Buffalo franchise to tho
National league was shown Manager
Morton, of Buffalo, last night:
Buffalo, N. Y., Aug, 13. Tho Evening
Times says that James Franklin, ownnr of
the Buffalo base Imll club, has received an
offer for the purchase of 'his club and
Eastern league franchise, the purpose be
ing to put thr'.n city In the National league.
Tho party maktiAg the offer Is said to be a
wealthy contractor nnd a base bell en
thusiast. It '. also stated that he has as
surances that a f ranch e In the big league
can be obtained on reasonable terms,
"Something of this kind was talked
about early In July, but was not given
general publicity," said Mr. Morton. "I
have no knowledge of the present deal.
However, there Is no secret of the de
sire of many National league magnate
to let Buffalo In, and I should not be
surprised if such a thing came to pas
In 1896. Barring Rochester's Sunday
games, Buffalo Is the best bane ball

goes into the National, Jersey City or
Newark I think, will take it place

Jt'DGB H. M. CDWAKDS HONORED
Made a Most laverable Impression OB
Ills Countrymen in Wales-Funeral
of Mrs. Daniel Hughes-Married
la the Early Morning.
tThe West Bide Interests of The Tribune
have been placed In the hands of Emer
son Owen, to whom all 'news announce
ments and complaints may be addressed.)
'Pitted against the best and noblest
men of Wales and the titled beings of
foreign nativity, Judge H. M. Edwards
Is honoring himself and His country un
the shores of OWalla. On Wednesday.
July HI, Judge Edwards conducted the
chief day's 'proceedings at the record
breaking Llanelly eisteddfod. News
papers received here contain glowing
accounts of the great event, the South
Wales Dally News devoting si columns
of space to a description of tho big sing
ing meet. Referring to the grandeur
and the success of the eisteddfod, the
"The Llanelly people are happy; and
well they may be, for never was an eis
teddfod ushered In and attended by a
happier combination of fortuitous cir
cumstances. Dame Fortune has been
positively lavish In her favors. The
gloomy forebodings of the general elec
tion nnd Its attendant worry and ex
citements would detain the people at
home have been effectually falsified,
and the rosy predictions of the Llanelly
ltes as to "record breaking" and all that
seem In a fair way of 'being realized.
Of course, a large attendance Is always
secured on chief choral day, but 'It Is
probably no exaggeration to state that
the Immense gathering witnessed today
Is unprecedented In the history of the
eisteddfod, with the exception, perhaps,
of the concourse that assembled on a
like occasion at tSwansea and Ponty
pridd." The News further tells of the crowds
that attended and, In Introducing our
fellow townsman to Its readers, re
marks that "Judge Edwards, of Bcran
ton, who, with Cadfan, acted as conduc
tor, had a cordial reception, and his
Welsh speech In which, though an
American citizen, he spoke of the ar
dent love which he and the scores of
thousands of Welsh-Americans cher
ished for "Yr Hen Wlad" roused the
audience to a high pitch of enthusiasm."
Then, under the head "Judge Ed
wards on His Native Land," the same
"Judge Kdwarda, Scranton, Pa., one
of the conductors of the eisteddfod, was
Introduced to the audience by Cadvan,
his fellow conductor, and In the course
of a spirited speech, delivered both In
Welsh nnd English, said they were
thankful for all languages on the earth,
but that day their thanks went up for
the old Welsh tongue. (Cheers.) Per
sonally he was thankful for America
and that Providence had led him to the
new world, but on that occasion he was
thankful for Wales 'Hen Wlad fy
'Nhadau.' (Cheers.) In America they
used to sing of the Btar-spangled ban
ner, but In. Wales and on that platform
they sang 'Ood Save the Queen,' and
Hen Wlad fy Nhndau.' (Loud cheers.)

But It was on the following day that
Judge Edwards captured the Cymro
heart. After making his opening
speech In Welsh he wo given an ova
tion outshining In sincerity any episode
of the eisteddfod. Eight thousand peo
ple were present and the Liverpool
Echo, In describing the great scene,
"After Judge Edwards' speech, Lord
Abtrdare rose to address the audience.
His lordship's remarks, however, were
absolutely Inaudible to the greater part
of the vast addlence, and were only
heard iby the reporters and a few peo
ple In the front seats, and from the far
side of the pavilion there soon arose
cries of 'Time's up,' 'Sit down,' and
other signs of Impatience. His lordship
however, continued mentioning tho
names of a number of Welshmen who
hud risen to eminence. The Impatience
of the bnck seats, however, at this
stage broke all bounds, and a great
shout Interrupted the speaker, followed
by the singing of a verse of 'Hen
Wlad fy Nhadau.' The appeals of
CaJvan, Judge Edwards, Archdeacon
UrtfflthH, and Morleu to restore order
were utterly Ineffective, and his lord
phlp then snld that, as he found he
couiW not make himself heard, he would
conclude by wlHhlng that this eistedd
fod would conduce to the welfare nnd
prosperity of the country. This pro
voked a great cheer from the people,
and quiet was rt-Btored."
The News editorially pays tW follow
ing critical tribute. to our citizen:
"Judge (Edwards mwwde an excellent
conductor, and, though an American., his
style dlffeml but Mtk from thit of the
eirteddfodwyr of Wales. What he
lacked In humor he more thnn compen
sated iby his amort, .buslmns-fllke habits
on the plat'fnrm, and large and uneasy
as the audience-turned' out to be, he
kept It wider excellent control."
In referring to a man who a few
months ago visited the West Side this
paper gives the following anecdote:
"The HonV Anthony Howwlls. the
American consul at Cardiff, blushed
tike a coy maiden at the morning gath
ering. A telegram Having arrived for
him, Judge Edward announced the fact
front the platform, and asked the hon
orable gentfleiman if he was present to
make his whereabout known. In an
Instant the Cardiff consul rose in hi
eat. from the auditorium, whereupon
hi fellow-countryman, the conductor,
Immediately cried out. There you have
