rUclu from a Staff Correspondent.
Providence, H. I.. May 7. Providence
won the two jrames this afternoon. The
tlrat yaa to the clum UlKRers like find
ing a-'soft, easy victory without look
ing for it, as shown by the score of 22
to 8; the second was anybody's meat
up to the eighth inning, when with
Providence . one run ahead, two on
buses and one out, Chiles muffed
Ward's usslst and let in the runs that
really won the game.
Kelly, the man who aspires to be an
umpire, but has a long way to travel,
presided over the games. He broke
Scranton's heart U the beginning of the
Hrst session by outrageous decisions on
butted bulls and balls and strikes. He
continued his cross-eyed work In the
second game. Scranton nearly always
got the short end of It.
The air was raw and penetrated to
the marrow of the 1,500 spectators, al
though the sun shone brightly. The
weather, in fact, had much to do with
Herr's easy pitching. His arm was not
a particle sore, but he was muscle
bound because of the cold weather. Af
ter being hit so freely In the llrst two
Innings, .during which Providence
scored nip times, he simply lobbed the
ball over and let it be hit at will. The
gam was very much of a farce.
Del t ik h was injured in the second
. Inning t.' the tirst game by a hot boun
cer of lassett's which struck him In the
groin, he fielded it successfully to
Chiles and then toppled over on the
field. His sameness in making the as
slst before giving Into the excruciating
pain he must have suffered, won loud
applause when after several minutes
delay he was assisted from the field.
MoUuIre taking his place. Mciulre by
the way was playing with a leg and
half to stand on but ninde some phe
nomenal stops and field plays. His one
error was a wild throw and was not
costly. Hutchinson made a good im
presslon. It is unfortunate three errors
have to be set apposite his name as
each error was on a desperate chance
Which occasioned discussion among the
scorers as to a hit or error. Altogether
he showed himself a fast worker, a
, quick sure throw, a clean hitter and a
man who doesn't hesitate to travel about
the diamond In quest of employment
His playing created a very favorable
iniDresslon with the audience. Each
of the many fliree baggers and four
home runs during the afternoon, ex
cepting the second of the two four bas
ers by Chiles, is attributable to the
score or more of carriages In right
. field.
Chiles' final home fun was a hit that
cleared the center Held fence.
' Herr was not anxious to pitch but
McDermott thought it best as hitting
more than pitching or fielding was ex
pected to win out at least one of the
games fbr Scranton and Johnson and
Horner were wanted for the opening
games at home. So Herr went In with
a sound but muscle bound wing and in
the first inning Providence Beared five
times with none out on four hits for
five bases, a sacrifice, a base on balls,
' Herr's wild throw to llrst and wild
pitch. In the Scranton half Ward got
t four wide ones and was advanced a
base on Meaney's single. Chiles
cracked out a single to right which
went through Murray and permitted
ward and Meaney to score two un
earned runs. Chiles reaching third.
Eagan got a base on balls and then oc
curred a peculiar play which netted
Hcrantnn two runs. Hutchinson hit
the ball down to Canavan who should
have assisted in a double play but
Chiles beat the ball norne. Kagan
reached third and Hutchinson first, the
latter ran over the bag purposely and
before half the Providence team could
see saw him out, Eagan got home. With
two out Providence scared four runs
ii nd made the tally 9 to 4 In the second
on three singles and errors by Meaney

; Cooney doing some brilliant work in
accepting all of his twelve chances.

that the game was lost was lobbing

Herr for one homer, a triple, three
doubles and a single. Five more
The second game was 'a little more
Interesting. Urown pitched a game of
greater merit than the score shows and
for which condition of affairs tne very,
very rank Judgment of I'mplre Kelly
in balls and strikes and his Inability to
tell a fair ball from a foul one is ac
countable from the beginning to the
end. Urown got a iierpetual roast, and
In at least three instances, when mere
were ennui vs for Scranton to score
Kellv called balls foul that were man
ifestly fair. Knorr. a colt, pitched for
he Rhode Islanders. He was hit rreeiy
but nearly always unfortunately, and
when a useful fair crack was mude at
the ball Kelly i-alled It foul. Provl-
lence was attain Itrst at bat. With two
ut and as many n bases Cooney new
ut to Meaney. Scranton also urew u
blank and Ward got llrst on Draubys
error, but Kelly called tnree uisnnci
strikes on Meaney, the lust two being
learly balls. Chiles hit safely, advanc
ing Waid to second, but Kagan lilt
one to Cooney, ana a uoume piuy re
sulted. It was one, two, three with
Providence in the second. Scranton
scored the first run. After Hutchinson
went out to Cooney Flack got second on
the doublu error of Cnnnavnn and
I.vons, Magulre Hew out to Uassett,
Fiack scored on Raffeiiy's single and
Urown singled, but the side was re

third with one out Lyons got four wide
ones, but Uassett funned and Knight
was blocked ut llrst. Meuney. Chiles
and Kagan were easy outs, Drauby
cracked out a homer In the fourth, but
was declared out for skipping second.
Three triples by Cooney, Cannavan and
Murray and an nttelct assis; to nrsi
earned three runs for Providence. In
the fourth, Scrnnton mude one on
Lyons' failure to stop Jiutcmnsons
single and Flack's drive to lert. aia
gulre struck out, Fluck was caught try-
lug to sfeal and rlarreriy was mnmn

Uassett led off with a single in the
fifth, and Knight made the same oi-
fense. Drauby popped up an easy one
to Urown. Ward stoppeu cooney a
grounder und touched Knight out on
the run und got the ball to lirst In time
to put Cooney out. Urown singled in
Scrantou's half. Ward Hew out to
Cooney. Meaney's hit sent Urown to

slxth with two out, but Knorr Btruek

ferty and Urown singled.
Here was un Instance where KCiiy
got In his tine work. Wurd pushed out
u low line drive over first base, the
ball tearing up the line In clouds on
the foul line. Kelly called It foul al
most before uhe bull struck terra firma.
Rafferty and Urown could have scored.
The next one Ward hit was an easy My
to Cooney, which retired the side. The
Providence run in the seventh was on
Hutchinson's error, which let Uassett
reach second, and hits by Drauby and
Cooney. For Scranton Meuney flew
out to Murray, Chiles made a double
and Eagan and Hutch fouled out to
Murray led off In the Providence
eighth by a right field drive among the
carriages. The ball was lost and he
got credit for a home run. Ward made
a fine running catch of Dixon's II y and
Knorr got to first on Hutchinson's er
ror. Lyons drew a base on balls and

nut played very rocky ball In the fourth
Inning when Springfield scored six runs.
A balk by Luckey was responsible for
one of them and lie made a wild throw

Has (iiven Added Confidence to the
' Members of the Scranton Cluli
lias Been Warming the Louisville Bench
so Long That It W ill Take
Few Games to Get Hint
In Shape.
Special from a Staff Correspondent.
Providence. R. I., May 7. One step to
ward strengthening what is by no
means an extremely weak team, hits
been mude In securing Hutchinson. Af
ter his long bench-warming with the
Loulsvilles It Is not expected that re
nin at. once round into good and even
playing form, but the hope prevails
thut after a little steady playing he will
be all right. That he is all wrong isn't
evidenced by Louisville's releasing hint,
as Louisville has released more good
players than any two National league
clubs; certainly McDermott thinks the
new shortstop is capable or he would
not have signed him. Anyhow his pres
ence In the game brings a great amount
of satisfaction to the players und the
club will gradually Improve in team
Now that Hutchinson is playing, and
assuming that ho will prove a find, it
only requires a good .hitting catcher
and outfielder and Maguire's return to
third to warrant the prediction that
Scranton will haw as good a chance to
possess the pennant as any club in the
league. This assertion Is not a wild
one, but Is based on the fact that Scran
ton appears to have the best pitchers
In the league, and a second and third
bastfman (Maguire) and an outfield
which will stand any comparison. The
outfield strengthened, the catcher and
centerfielder secured, It is hard to see
how Scranton can finish below third.
The brief mention In last night's dis
patch of the effort of a minor league
club to have one of the Scranton pluy
ers Jump the team will not huve un un
favorable termination. The , player
will not Jump; In fact he hud no inten
tion of doing so, but was very much
worried over Information that he was
to be arrested for some wrong he is
alleged to have committed during th
Hornellsvllle was the club thut wus
after him. He was offered $150 per
month, his bourd und all expenses und
his Indebtedness of 75 to Scranton for
advance money If he would play in
Hornellsvllle. It was further held out
to him that the Hornellsvllle manage
ment had secured the assurance of one
occupying a high position in the New
York state government that he would
not be extradited. He has been assured,
however, that the Scranton owners will
give him all the protection that Is con
sistent with honor and regard for the
law. That has satisfied him and Hor
nellsvllle will whistle.
Maguire Is the only player whose
physical condition prevents him from
playing. One of his ankles seems to
have recovered its normal strength but
the other' still shows the effect of the
strain It received In the practice games
and the set-buck It got In the one game
Magulre played against SprlngHeld. He
limps slightly but the Injured member
is fast improving. The players look
upon Maguire as a third bagman who
will rank with almost any in the league.
McDermott has not yet been assured
that the arm of Dan Mahoney, the
catcher whose release was purchased
from Portland, is sound. Mahoney
knows he has been purchased but re
mains In Wlnstead.Conn.. playing seml
professionully. This is looked upon us
a clear indication thut something is
wrong with hlin, as with u good arm
he was lust year one gf the best catch
ers In the New England league, and the
lame arm Is the only plausible expla
nation of his failure to go Into a strong
league with a manager as well known
to him as McDermott.

The story told by Hutchinson of his
delay In reporting throws Iiht ou the
mismanagement of the Louisvilles. It
seems that Dreyfuss. the treasurer of
the Louisville association, sold Hassa
mer and Hutchinson and sinned Man
ager McCloskey's name to all the corre
spondence, letters and telegrams. He
sent the players terms without con
sulting them and the deal was consum
mated two days before McCloskey.
Hassamer or Hutchinson knew any
thing about it. With such Interference
It Is not surprising that Hutchinson was
slow to come here, und it explains why
Louisville is so grossly mismanaged.
Hutchinson says the directors have
been accustomed to notify McCloskey
the day of a game how he should ns
sig the players to certain positions
and to designate the pitcher for the
game. A. T. R.
Scranton on J Spring field Will Contest at
Athletic Park.
Today the Eastern league season
opens in this city.
The Scranton club will arrive In this
city at 1 o'clock this afternoon from
Providence and a few hours later will
face the SprlngHeld club on the dia
mond. Johnson will probably do the
