F01C1IT A CAME FIGHT.
Scranton's Last League Game at Home
Ended in a Defeat of Honor-Beaten by
One Run in the Ninth.
There is some consolation In that the
Scianton club yesterday closed the
Eastern league season on tlie home
grounds by a game that redounded to
its credit rather thun otherwise.
Bpringtlld won. as a matter of course,
but it was by only one run in the hint
Inning and the less thun lOo loyul
knockers huddled In the middle of the
grandstand had their blood, a-tingllng
during the last three innings, and the
players go to Providence to finish the
season with the satisfaction that on me
from having fought gamely in the fare
well game at home.
Owing to the illness of Captain Don
nelly, of the Ponies, his position at
third was filled by tWkbert, and Gruber
want to first. The Scranton playing or
der was changed by the appearance of
Smlrh behind the rubber and Schrlver
jii 1IKI1L iiriu. o-pittiii Biennis wus
In control of the team owing to the ab
sence In Syracuse of Manager Barnle,
who Is making final arrangements for
the Syracuse players who will play
for Scranton agalnut Wllkes-Barre in
The Tribune' Trophy cup series.
The score was 4-4 untH the fourth
Inning, whet the 'Ponies batted In two
earned runs, and in the sixth they In
creased their lead to three. Scranton
In th seventh earned one on Brodle's
douhli and Meuney's single, and tied
the soo In the eighth on three runs
secured Stearns' two-bagger, a base
on balls "i Tuston. errors by Shannon
and McDo, aid and a single by Ward.
After making a two-bagger In the
r..lnth, Stearns spoiled a chance to
ecore by napping off second, where he
was caught by 'Shannon, Huston hav
ing previously been retired at first.
Sweeney drew a base on balls and
Brodie fanned out.
Springfield's winning run was made
on Jones' triple and Leahy's out to
Meaney, who made one of the star one
hand catches of the season, but the
distance to the plate was so great that
the ball could not be fielded and Jones

Wllkes-Barre. iPa,. Sept. 12. Wllkes

for the graduates from the? big league.
Rudder ham was Invincible as usual
toward the coal barons, Digglns being
the only one who could hit him safely.

PLAYERS ARE SIX I KED.
Negotiations Are Closed with the Syracuse
Players Who VI ill lluttlo fur Scranton
In the Cap Scries.
Manager Barnle was In Syracuse
yesterday closing the negotiations with
the 'Syracuse players who will wear
Scranton uniforms in the Herb-H against
Wllkes-Barre next week for The Trib
une Trophy cup. .Last night he tele
graphed that he had positively secured
Power, Egan, Minnahan and .Moss, the
Syracuse Inlleld, and Burnett, the crack
Syracuse t wirier.
It hud been the Intention to pitch
Johnson, Meaney and 'Burnett In the
series, but Johnson last, night received
a message that his mother was dying
In San Francisco and he will leave for
the west this afternoon. He was last
night notified by President Betts that
He Is reserved for next season. This
unforseen circumstance will make It
necessary to engage another pitcher.
Manager Barnle was Informed by tele
graph of the situation and it Is not un
likely that he will get Harper of the
Word, was received from Wllkes
Barre last night that Manager Shannon
was on a skirmish for a strong pair of
pitchers who, with Keenan, will repre
sent Wllkes-Barre In the box. as Coak
ley is obliged to go to Pittsburg on busi
ness. Through a well-known Scranton Jew
eler the trophy cup has 'been ordered
from New York and during next week
will be placed on exhibition. It will be
of especial design and will nosaess con
siderable Intrinsic value.
Of the Scranton team It Is probnble that
In addition to Pitchers Meaney and John
son not more than two of the present club
will bo reserved for 1890. Schrlver will
probnbly be one of tho two; the other
player's Identity Is a guess.
Apropos of the exclusion of Sam Crane,
of the New York Press, from the Polo
grounds, a western contemporary re
marks: "Bnse ball magnates seem to
think that the principal duties of newspa
per men are to throw bouquets at them."
Will Sandy Griffin manage the WUkes
Barre club next year? Inside Information
says thut Jack Keenan, the WHkes-Barre
twlrler, who has won about 73 per cent,
of his games, will be drafted by Washing
ton to be transferred to Rochester along
with Dnn Shannop.
Dan Shannon Is tinder reserve contract
as mnnager of the Wllkes-Barre club, but
the reserve clause will not' prevent Wash
ington, of the National league, from draft
ing him. Washington will then turn him
over to Rochester. .The national agree
ment (7) Is as solid as a sieve.
Dan Shannon Is In his dotage. He says
Manager Barnle cannot secure for The
Tribune cup series a team that will defeat
WHkes-Barre In a majority of games.
Wllkes-Barre has a good team, but there
are other players on the face of the earth.
They will be drafted from other clubs of
the Eastern leajeue and In the series the
Alligators are bound to run against a
In the face' of the report that Tom
Burns, of Hprtngfleld. will manage the
New Yorks next season the assurance Is
given from different sources that Jack
Chapman will undertake the contract of
leading the Giants to victory. Chapman's
achievements with the Toronto during
his control of that club oasts Burns'

strength of this fact Chapman may get
WILL THE FIGHT COME OFF?
Parson Davles Thinks Governor Culber
son Means Business.
Tt Is reported that Champion Cor
bett's friends lo not believe that the
fight with Fltxslmmons will come off,
and that consequently ho Is not train
ing. Pbrson Duvis says:
"I saw Corbett about a week ago.
and I did not like his looks, lie did
not seem to have the life and energy
which he formerly possessed, and iiis
eyes were dull and listless. I attrib
uted this to the fact that he had been
knocking about the country a great
deal playing ball, attending theatrical
performances, keeping late hours and
other dissipations. Corbett Is a won
derful man. though, and a great light
er. If he trains all right and enters
the ring In tit condition there Is no
doubt but he wil whip Fltxslmmons.
Bob, however. Is in great condition
right at this time, and will put up an
awful tluli t. If Jim Is not right up to
tho mark he may suffer defeat.
"I don't attach much Importance to
what I hear of the condition of the two
men, for I don't believe they will meet,
at least not tn Texas. When a gov
ernor of a state announces that he
will stop a prise fight, he usually
means what he says, and In this In
stance I think Governor Culberson is

1492 AT FROTIIINGIIAM.
Attracted on Audlcnco Which Taxed tho
Capacity of the House.
Rlchardi Jlarlow, chic Bessie Botiehlll
and Ross Snow carried "141)2" through
with a swing and a dash at the Froth
Ingham last night, although it was the
first night of the company's road sea
son. It was never intended that "1492"
should be dissected or seriously con
sidered. It won't stand that sort of
treatment. As an amalgamation of
cleverness, now. alas, somewhat behind
date In spots, It Is most enjoyable if
you don't dip below the surface.
Conceived to entertain and please It
was made redolent of life, color and ac
tion to accomplish that purpose. Every
stage grouping was arranged with an
eye to artistic effect and a series of
attractive pictures are the result,
which appeal to one sense, while bright
dialogue and lively music do to an
other. To add variety the Kllanyl living pic
tures are Introduced. They were given
last evening under the direction of Herr
Kllanyl with the attention to coloring
and detail which made each picture pre
sented almost an exact copy of the ori
ginal. Bessie Bonehlll was a favorite from
the moment she appeared upon the
stage. She Is a very versatile and en
tertaining young woman. Richard Har
low was every Inch a queen In appear
ance. His make-up wus a work of art.
Ross Snow demonstrated that, as the
King of Spain and Charley Tatters, he
Is a worthy successor to Walter Jones,
who crented the roles. 'Mr. Know Is a
comedian of more than ordinary clever
ness. An sudlence that taxed the cnpaclty
of the house saw the performance.
