Wilkes-Barre was the only home team
which faileil to pull out a victory Satur
day. Of the winners, Nermann hail to
ork the hardest to stave oft defeat.
. The Kcranton victory and Wllkcs
Bnrre defeat does not put the former In
sixth position. Such would have been
the ease, however, tf there had been no
forfeited pa me Tuesday. Two wins will
have to be credited the Alllpators for
that day, notwithstanding the Scranton
protest. It Is a matter of record that
Scranton suffered two defeats until the
league directorate decides otherwise.
The present series In Wllkes-linrre,
Providence, Springfield and this city do
not end until tomorrow. Syracuse and
Rochester seem due to win today.

Harper Was Poorly Supported, but
Toronto's Errors Were A'o-e Coolly
and Scranton Won.
In a superb pitching contest between
Harper and Mornn, the Canadians were
Saturday defeated In a shallow-score
game. The score was 6 to 4. It was
chiefly through the very costly errors of
Delehanty, the Toronto shortstop, that
Scranton won, although our own errors
made It possible for the Canucks to get
three of their four run?.
The weather was threatening until a
lew minutes before the game was called,
but at 4 o'clock the sky cleared and al
most perfect base ball weather was pro
vided. The audience was large and
filled each set of bleachers and was rep
resented by a generous sprinkling in
the gra':d.stand. It was a typical Sat
urday crowd, disposed, of course, to
root for a home victory, but always
ready to applaud the good work of the
Moran, who pitched for Toronto, has
almost a clean string of victories since
the season opened and was looked upon
to keep Scranton's heavy hitters guess
ing. He did so and Harper was obliged
to do his best work In order to keep
things even. Off Moran Scranton got
only five hits for as many bases, but
eight walked to first and two were hit
by pitched balls; Moran was credited
With six strlke-outs. Harper permitted
but five hits for nine banes, struck out
four batsmen and walked four to first.
So the pitching honors were about even
ly distributed. Off Moran but one sin
gle and a bunt were made after the
third and off Harper but one hit, a
triple, after the second.
Latham got In the way of one of
Moran's shoots In the first and limped
to first and reached third on a wild
pitch, scoring on Meaney's single. To
ronto made four runs and got a lead of
three In tne second. With one out
Smith reached first on Rafferty's fum
ble of the former's bunt. Smith stole
second and went to third on warper's
wild throw to catch him off the bag
and scored on O'Hrlen's triple. Casey
singled to right, scoring O'Brien, and
reached third on Meaney's failure to
stop the hit. Casey came In on Moran's
fungo back of third, and a base on balls
to Delehanty sent Moran to second, he
coring on Freeman's single to left.
Score 1-4. ,
Scranton made four runs and got a
lead of one tally In the third. Latham
drew four wide ones und stole second
and third, while Hutchinson struck out
and Meaney flew out to Smith. Ward
walked and stole second and scored with
Latham on Griffin's single to left, the
latter reaching second on the play.
Eagan hit a grounder to Delehanty,
wntcn tne latter threw wild to first and
stole second, Griffin coming In on
Casey's wild throw to third, when
Eagan made his steal. Another bad

was a battle of pitchers. Coakley made
his first appearance this season for the

credit. The visitors, however, were
fortunate in bunching their hits.

The Syracuse papers roasted the Roch

and now has Just finished roasting the um
pire because he roaBted Has-Been Rellly
a few dollars worth for profane lnnguage.
Herr KunUsch wanted Doescher suspend,
ed. What Kuntzsch don't want in the
way of disagreeable things doesn't
amount to much. Ho has never been on
good terms with himself.
Outcalt, the new trial first baseman, Is
Pity tho poor umpire. Here's an urn
piratical obituary from a Buffalo ex
change ancnt tho Syracuse roasts for
Doescher: "Doeschcr is twenty times
fairer than 'Robber' Oaffney, who 'trun
It Into' the Bisons In great Bhape In Roch
ester. Doescher Is all right, as his games
in Buffalo proved."
Bill Hasstuner, instead of being released
by Louisville nnd signed by Newark, Is
said to have been farmed to Sprlnglleld.
"Latham would be a good man to work
the shells at Von der Ahe's track in St.
Louis, and Chris made a mistake In not
giving him tho privilege. With Lath at
the shells and Larry O'Day manipulating
the books, that St. Louis outfit would
have a better graft than the Prince of
Monaco at Monte Carlo," says Tom
Pitcher Harper Is do'ng excellent work
for Scranton. He is a particularly steady
and effective twlrler In critical places.

Wilkes-Barre News-Dealer (Saturday).
"The article In this morning's News
Dealer on the management of the
Wilkes-Barre ball team must have been
written by some one Ignorant of the
facts, who has never met Manager
Chapman. The article contains noth
ing but lies. Mr. Chapman thoroughly
understands his business and will re
main as manager of the Wilkes-Barre
club. The players have all been used
well by htrh and none of them can deny
it. The loss of games Is no fault of his."
Friday's Leader.
Mr. Chapman Is a good fellow and a
gentleman and the writer of the article
does not bear the slightest animosity
toward him. But In reply to the Leader,
If a majority of the directors are to be
believed, Chapman will not be retained
as manager many more weeks despite
the fact that Mr. Bogart favors him.
The article In the paper met with gen
eral favor and was commended by near
ly every lover of the game. It expressed
the sentiments of them all. They all
want Mr. Chapman discharged and a
new and competent manager engaged,
they recognize the fact that for some
reason or other the Wilkes-Barre club
cannot win games with Chapman as
manager and Just so long as they can
not win, will there be a small attend
ance. A winning club can make money
here, a losing club will lose money.
The Leader evidently has not heard
of the widespread dissatisfaction which
prevails. Perhnps the fact that a peti
tion Is being circulated asking for a
change of management will serve to
open Mr. Bogerfs eyes. This petition
is now on file at Helstand's billiard
rooms; it was placed there Friday After
noon and by 9 In the evening it had
over sixty signatures.
It reads as follows: , ;
"We, the undersigned patrons of the
Wilkes-Barre ball club emphatically de
clare that until there la a change in the
management of the club, we will not
contribute to Ita exchequer by our at
tendance at the games.
"Furthermore, knowing we hare a
good club, we deem it to be to the best
interest of bate ball In this city to have
a change made at once, and give ua a
man to MANAGE that is up to date and
in HARMONY with the players."

' The National league heavy hitters'

Harlo Northrop'a Exciting Experience In
an Open Crge in a Circus Parade in
the Streets of Bridgeport.
Bridgeport, Conn., June 7. The
throng attracted by the parade of Bar
num & Balley'g show yesterday morn
ing witnessed a thrilling scene on Main
street, opposite the Postal Telgraph
office. Harlo Northrop, the keeper In
charge of a cage of hyenas, bent into
submission four of the savage brutes
which refused to obey and finally at
tacked him.
When the parade left the circus
grounds and proceded down St ae street
Northrop noticed that his charges w r
restless and ugly and occasionally
snapped at each other. He kert a charp
watch on them. All went well until the
corner of Main and Wall streets waa
reached. There a (tense crowd had
Congregated. At that point the largest
of the four hyenas made a Jump at
The keeper was on the alert for Just
such a move and stepped aside, at the
same time dealing the animal a heavy
blow on the head with the loaded whip
he carried. He followed this with other
blows and drove the brute to the corner.
While this was going on another hyena
made an attempt to pass back of North
rop. He prevented this, and after a
struggle drove the animal back Into the
corner with the others.
The hyenas first subdued by North
rop had recovered somewhat by this
time from the effects of the blows, and
all became greatly excited and began to
pace up and down the cage. The par
ade bad already parsed Into Main street.
Northrop Is a native of Bridgeport, and
had many acquaintances and friends In
the crowds along the streets.
After the first attack the crowd had
followed the cage in which the hyenas
were, and the sidewalk and street were
"Get out of the cage!" "Give them the
whip!" and all sorts of advice were
given to Northrop by his friends. The
young man stood firm, however, and
backed Into a corner of the cage.
At Wall street the four animals made
a concerted move and dashed arotiAd

tigation shows that for over thirty-two
years he used three and a half pounds

Tie Man
Who Drives
The doctor, the salesman the man
who drives as a business and the man
who drives for pleasure, know the
