Scranton Receives from Springfield Its
First Shut-Out This Season -An Element
' of llnrd l.uck.
There was no particular dismay over
the loss of yesterday's game to the
SprlnpllclJs. who may now be called
champions; the art of losing games has
become quite a fine art with Scranton's
players, but anions the handful of
faithful cranks left, yesterday's game
was a sockdolager blow, because it was
the first shut-out administered to
'Scranton this season. The shut-out was
received, however, at the hands of the
now champions of the league, and there
Is some flory In 'that fact, as Scranton
has at least the one distinction of be
ing the last club in the Eastern league
to be attiicted with nine large round
For two Innings neither club made a
hit, but in the third Manager Burns'
youngsters touched Patrick iMeaney up
Seven times for eleven bases, and, as
sisted by two walks to first and
Steams' error, scored seven runs, three
of which were made after chances had
been offered to retire the side. Only
once did 'Scranton appear to have an
opportunity to score, which was In t'he
seventh, when, with three on bases,
Sweeney proved himself too narrow
shouldered to bat a runner in and was
thrown out by Coughlin at first.
In no Inning was more than one hit
made off Coughlin, and, excepting the
seventh, his control was so perfect that
Scranton stock was away below par.
'' The 'playing of the 'home team was
listless and half-hearted. An element
of hard luck was mixed In with their
work, when. In the fifth, Smith and
Ptearns went out In order on two long
foul tips, and In the sixth when Shan
non missed Kagan's force hit but
f.'booted" the ball to McDonald, 'Who,
lying on his stomach, was Just able to
connect between the ball and the bag
and put Sweeney out with only a sec
ond to spare. ,

Henry of Navarre Beats Domino and
Hey 111 Santa Anita a Splendid Race.
Sheepshead Bay Race Track, Sept. 11.
.'loe to 10.000 people were present
here today. The programme was of a
high order, but the magnet that drew
the spectators was the meeting of the
three cracks, Domino, Henry of Na
varre and Key El Santa Anita, at a
mile and a furlong. The outcome was
to settle the question of the best horse
of the year. The talent was staunch in
their allegiance to Henry of Navarre.
Domino was second choice. Rey El
Santa Anita had the consideration of
the Pacific coast contingent only.
Riley Ornnnan went the rounds of
the ring with Henry of Nuvarre money,
ll'is biggest bet was with Joe Ullman,
who laid him 112,000 against 910,000.
When the Hag fell the young western
plunger stood to win $60,000.
Henry of Navarre was the first to'
appear, die was followed by Domino
and Rey Kl iSanta Anita. The trio
were greeted with applause. Domino
was somewhat fractious at the post,
and they got the signal to depart on
the second break. Domino had the rail
and at once settled down to. set a
killing pace. He carried Ida rivals
along at a terrific clip, having a clear
and decisive lead until the upper turn
was reached. At the far turn Henry
of Navarre and Rey El Santa Anita
began to wear down Domino's lead.
As they swung Into the home stretch
Henry of Navarre was within striking
distance of Domino. Henry of Na
varre .gradually closed upon Domino
and was on even terms with him before
the sixteenth post was reached. , A
frightful drive ensued. Taral rode Ilka
a demon, but ft was of no avail. The
distance was too much for Domino,
and Henry of Navarre flashed by the
post a winner of the first of the cham
pionship series, a neck in front of him.
Key El Santa Anita was a bad last.

Scries Between Scranton and Wilkes
Barre Begins Next Keek. .
NEW I'LAYBKS FOR SCRANTON
The Past Syracuse Infield Will Probably
Appear In Scranton tnlform-The
Tribune lias Offered the Cup.
. Players Are on Edge.
The Wllkes-Barre and Scranton bass
ball clubs of the Eastern league will
next week 'begin a seriea of seven
games for a trophy cup, valued at more
than tM, to be offered by The Tribune:
or, to put it more correctly, the club
representing Scranton In the Bcrlcs
will probably Include the complete
Syracuse infield, 'Burnett, the Syracuse
pitcher, and Harper, the Rochester
crack. i.Munager Barnlo was in Wilkes
Barre yesterday, and. after a confer.
ence with Manager Dan Shannon, of
the lIKcs-iturre club, the subjoined
agreement, providing for the playing
for the cup was acknowledged.
The agreement provides that the club
which lirst wins three yenily series
shall obtain full ownership of the cup.
Under this provision the ownership
cannot be decided in less than three
years, or later than five years hence,
although the cup will be temporarily
held by the club that wins It from year
In the conference preceding the con
sent of all parties to the agreement
there was a vigorous discussion be
tween. the two managers as to the out
come of this year's series. While no
harsh words were spoken, Manager
Shannon firmly expressed the belief
that the present Wilkes-Harre club,
with the addition of a pitcher, can de
feat any aggregation of players that
'Manager liainle can get together. The
latter, of course, took an opposite view
and the conference terminated with
the determination of each manager to
do his utmost to win.
Copy of the Agreement.
Following Is the agreement:
Seranton. Pa., 8ept. 11, 1895.
1. This agreement provides for the pluy
Ing for the Scranton Tribune Trophy Cup
by the representative professional base
bull clubs of Wilkes-Barre and Hcruntou.
2. The cup shull be played for only by
clubs representing Wilkes-liurre. and
Scranton in the same or different' major
professional leagues and shall belong per
manently to the club first to win three
yearly series, the series to be won not nee.
essarily consecutively, and If either city
sells or transfers Its franchise, the club
holding the cup shull return the same to
its donor to be held until such time us
each city ugain possesses a professional
club In a major league, In which case all
former series, won or lost, shall be
3. Each yearly series shall consist of
five or more game following the close of
the regular bull season and shall be played
on dates to bu agreed upon by the ac
credited representatives 'of the two clubs.
4. The rules of the National League and
American Association of Base Bull clubs
6. The umpire or umpires shall be chosen
by the clubs.
6. Any refusal on the part of either club
to conform to this agreement shall result
In a forfeiture of the whole of one series
or of one game In said series, as the Scran
ton Tribune may decide.
7. All conflicting interpretations of this
agreement shall be referred to the donor
of the cup, whose decision shall be final,
and any contingency not provided for in
this agreement shall be . decided by the
8. The players on either club need, not
necessarily have played on the club rep
resenting either city during a seuson Im
mediately preceding any given series, but
It Is obligatory on each club to furnish its
batting order before G o'clock on the day
Immediately preceding any game,

Manager of the Scranton Base Ball Club.

Manager of the Wllkes-Barre Base Ball
Witness II. O, Merrill, A. T. Raynsford.
Dost Infield Possible.
Four of the Spracuse players who
will appear In Scranton uniforms dur
ing the series enjoy the distinction of
composing what is said to be the fast
est and best Infield In the Eastern
league; they are Power, captain of the
Syracuse team, first base; Egan, sec
ond base; Minnahnn, third base, and
Moss, shortstop. From the present
Scranton Infield, outfield and batteries
selections will be made to complete a
team which should give the fighting
W'llkes-'Barreans a hard tussle.
A peculiar feature of the games will'
be t'he strife on the part of the Syra
cuse players to win for Scranton, and
Wllkes-Barre's efforts to prevent such
a result. Between the present Wllkes
Barre and Syracuse clubs there Is no
love lost; In fact, several physical en
counters among the players have dur
ing the season been prevented only by
the cooler heads. This feeling Is
bound to enthuse the whole outllt, and
whether Wllkes-Barre or Scranton is
victorious In the series, the spectators
of neither city will have cause to com
plain of not having seen some desper
ately fought games.
The Tribune's object In offering the
cup Is, briefly, to stimulate the love of
the great national game, which, In
Scranton, has been dampened, recently
owing to the poor work of the present
team. This paper has not, nor will It
have, a favorite club In the closely ap
proaching series, nor In the series In
yeans to come; It will decide all dis
agreements fairly and squarely, and lis
only hope Is that the best club may al

The gap 4n tho schedule from Thurs

Is caused by exhibition games already
scheduled between Wllkes-Barre and
Hazleton. During this Interval It is
probuble that the Syracuse-Scrnnton

It has been provided that 80 per cent,
of the gross receipts shall be divided

Personal and Other News
The West Side 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.
On Toes ay evening was the regular
meeting night of the West esme uoaru
tf trade, but a lack of quorum again
demonstrated that West Side promi
nent men as a rule are listless to an ex
tent of lniurv when the interests of this
side are considered. For years this
board has been in e&UHence and tias
laboriously struggled for life and in
fluence, but It seems tdiat, up to date,
the organization Is a sad failure. On
tine roll of members a nufliclent num
ber uf names are found to make the
board a tower of strength, but being
a. mere member and an active hustler
are two different conditions. The 'board
meets every first Tuesday in the mouth
and on these occasions 'Secretary Dan
iels and few stalwarts can always be
seen searching 'the byways for the
make-up of a quorum. Seven men are
generally found whose business allows
them a few hours respite for the gen
eral good, and these meet and do the
best things possible plan and talk.
The West Is t'he most sadly neglected
seotlon of the city. No Industries have
been attracted' here and Improvements
have been slowly accomplished. The
viaduct project Is still a project, as It
has been for years.
