Two Fourth of July games were
played by each of the clubs, except To
ronto and Buffalo, ruin preventing the
Tames In the latter city. Providence
gullied mi Rochester by winning two
games from the Ponies, but Rochester,
after splitting- even with the Stars Sat

gains a llrmer hold un the leading posi

Scranton and Wilkes-Burre keeps the
'two in the same position, sixth and sev

TEAMS SPLIT EVEN.
Pitchers Play an Important Part in the
of July Games.
The two ctubs divided the honors
Saturday. Scranton winning the morn
ing game In this city and Wilkes
Barre bagging the argument down the
valley in the afternoon. About 3,000
persons, including a handful of Wilkes
Barreans, saw the game here, while at
least 600 Scrantonlans were sprinkled
among the audience of 3,500 at Wilkes
Barre. Harper and Coakley were pitted
against each other in this city. The
former could not be solved when hits
were needed, and Coakley, too, pitched
good ball, barring his wlldness, but
the four errors of his mates made pos
sible six of Scranton's ten runs.
Down at Wllkes-Barre, however,
Johnson's light did not shine very
brightly when compared to Keenan's
brilliant box work. The Alligators de
served their victory, but there Is no
telling what the result might have been
If two unfortunate errors by. Hutchin
son and a misjudged fly by O'Brien In
the second Inning had not started the
game under discouraging circum
etunces for Griffin's men.
The detailed scores are very good

PROVIDENCE HERE TODAY.
Brown or Gillea Will Bo in the Box
Providence plays here today and to
morrow. The Grays are having a bat
tle royal with Rochester for first posi
tion, and Scranton has by dint of hard,
up-hill work, got out of the eighth hole
and reached sixth place, so It Is certain
that each club will play to the limit to
hold and maybe improve the advantage
already possessed. Thus far Scranton
has won two and Providence three of
the Ave games the two have played to
gether. Brown or Gillen and Outcalt or Raf
ferty will be In the points for Scranton.
Manager Griffin will play center field
In place of Meaney, who has been called
to Philadelphia by the Illness of his
mother. Griffin's hand has not com
pletely healed and may handicap him
in batting, but will not Interfere with
his field play.
MEANEY WILL REMAIN. .
Buffalo Made a. Very Handsome Oner
The rumor that a deal was. on to
possibly trade Meaney to Buffalo for
Outfielder Ooodenough and Shortstop
Leewe has caused not a little com
ment among the cranks.
Yesterday the Buffalo club renewed
Its offer and agreed to pay $500 in ad
dition. Manager Griffin, hojwever, had
decided not to consider the proposition
on any basis and wired back a reply to
that effect. So Patrick will remain and
the danger of a big, loud kick from the
fans is averted.
While conversing with a Tribune re
porter about the matter last night
Manager Griffin expressed the opinion
that the team, according to its present
make-up and work, Is equal to land
ing Scranton In a snug position at the
end of the season, and that he would
not take any chances on trading or
selling any player for poorer ones.
Will Bo Known as the Albany Club
Buffalo, July 5. Negotiations between-
Eastern league magnates - and
the manager of the Toronto club on be
half of the latter' transfer to Albany,
have culminated to the satisfaction of
Albanians and from next Thursday the
Toronto aggregation will be known aa
the Albany team.
We have no further use for'Horner.
Outfielder Hill, of Reading, has signed
Scranton has won the three games which
Gillen has pitched.
Uun Brouthers, of the Phillies, has been
given notice of release.
Billy Nash, the Phillies' gentlemanly
captain, will enter a Boston clothing store
as a salesman after the playing season.
Tommy Leahy had a day off yesterday
and he deserved It. It was the first game
he has miaaed this season. Springfield
Springfield plays here Wednesday and
Thursday, and that ends Scranton's home
visit, the club going away until the end
of next week.
Meaney received a telegram during the
afternoon game informing him his mother
was very 111 at her home, In Philadelphia,
and he left for that city on the 6.16 Lehigh
Valley train from Wllkes-Barre.
Rettger, who played with Frank Ely In
the Pennsylvania league years ago, and
was tried and released by Cleveland, has
taken a new lease of life, and Is the win
ning pitcher of the Milwaukee team.
Charlie Morton, last year's manager of
the Buffalo club, umpired the Syracuse
Rochester game at Rochester Thursday.
That he wasn't a howling success Is In
dicated by the following from the Syra
cuse Courier: "But Mr. Morton, umpire,
easily distanced the field. For crude,
childish. Immature, Idiotic, Impartial
guesswork Morton takes the bun. Be
side him, Doescher is an angel of light, a
bright nnd shining llght Where the
ball went was absolutely Irrelevant so far
as his decisions on balls and strikes were
concerned. It was a matter of no moment
whatever whether the ball got to the
base ahead of or after the runner. Morton
should be farmed to the Upper Sandusky

Olyphaut Browns ' Won the U33 Prize
The Olyphant Browns succeeded In car
rying off the prize of 125 offered by the
Delaware and Hudson Canal company
at Farview on Saturday by defeating the
Harmonies of Scranton by a score of 14
to 3. The Browns put MeDermott In the
box and for three Innings he was hit
quite freely. In the fourth he was suc
ceeded by Cleary. He pitched a remark
able game, preventing the Harmonies
from scoring during the remainder of the
game. Hurst pitched a steady game for
the Harmonies up to the last two Innings,
when he was found for a total of ten runs.
Wheeler and Coleman put up a fine field

OVER THE ROUTE IN EIGHTY DAYS
Chicago Members of the L, A. W. Has
Proposed the SchemeLegislatures
Will Be Asked to Aid by Improving
the II.ghways.Path Should Simply
Be a Stretch of Good Roads.
A Chicago member of the League of
American Wheelmen has proposed that
a continuous roadway be built between
New York and San Francisco. The
"Inter-Ocean" has explained the
scheme. In the words of the promoter,
thus: "I would start, say, at the Pa
clfls coast, and going north from San
Francisco, would strike across for Sac
ramento. Once In Nevada, I would
keep pretty close to the railroads, to
steer clear of the Santa Rosa moun
tains. The railroads have mapped out
things pretty well along there, and I
should hug the track, taking only ex
cursions by the hour all through Ne
vada and Utah, until I reached Great
Salt Lake. Here there Is a very pretty
chance for a run south to Salt Lake
City, and another one north to Canada,
Nowhere Is the country more delightful
than right here. '
"Striking the railroad again at Salt
Lake, I should continue east, keeping
the locomotive constantly in eye. I
should hit Wyoming in Its southwest
corner and steer through the lower part
of it. If you want an Interesting trip
you can strike Denver and branch
aside to Cripple Creek. Here you will
find It hard wheeling, but so varied
that you are willing to put the wheel
on train and ride part of the way your
self. This Is aside from the quick
cross-country trip, and little latitudes
BEE-LINE THROUGH NEBRASKA.
"Now, you leave Denver and go north
again, striking the main railroad near
Cheyenne. Then you go toward Ne
braska, making almost a bee-line
through the southern section of the
state. The North Platte river accom
panies you part of the way, and you
And yourself In a densely populated
country where-wheelmen abound.
"At Omaha you leave the railroad
and wheel acroaa Iowa from Council
Bluffs to Davenport, without deviation,
and strike Into Illinois. The clearest
way la by a hoop path from Rock Island
to Chicago. You touch Ottawa and Au
rora, and And your path very level
and the roads well kept, and when you
reach Chicago you put up your wheel
for a dozen of the side trips that are a
part of the expedition. There Is a good
wheel path north of Milwaukee. It
skirts Lake Michigan, and Is the most
romantic Jolt of the Journey If you
choose to take It.
"At Milwaukee you can stow away
your wheel on a lake steamer, and go
across to Detroit, where the best roads
wait you. You can now go directly
south again, and strike the trail fifty
miles beyond Chicago, and Just so much
nearer the Atlantic coast. You are now
In Indiana, where there are good roads
along the railroad, and these you fol
low across the state and Into Ohio. At
Toledo you begin to breathe the air of
Lake Erie, and from there to Cleveland,
and on to Buffalo, you have the satis
faction of wheeling dally along a path
that keeps the railroad In sight, yet lies
along a lake that cools you by day and
sings to you by night.
ACROSS NEW YORK STATE.
"At Buffalo you start to cut New
York state In two pieces. You go
through it at Saratoga. From there
you might keep on your way across
New Hampshire and Vermont to the
Maine coast, where Portland would be
your nearest point. But If you do this
you muBt cross the Green mountains of
Vermont and the White mountains of
New Hampshire, and run your risk of a
rocky approach to Portland. It is less
than 200 miles now to the sea, and as the
roads are good you should fetch up In
New York city In four or five days.
That tours you from the Pacific to the
"Now," said the cycling gentleman,
laying down the map, "you see the
path Is a feasible one. Personally I do
not believe In the bicycle track. I
think good roads are good enough for
the wheelman. What I am aiming at,
and what I do think possible, Is a bi-

cycle path across the country which
shall be simply a good road. Each
state can take care of Its own roads,
and the result will be one long stretch
of good wheeling.
My aim Is to get legislation through
to make the roads good first; and, sec
ond, to connect the different paths. For
example, there Is one very fine stretch
of road In Indiana. Every wheelman
who goes through It speaks of 1L But
approaching this good stretch, and
leading from It, Is a very heavy, rough
piece of country. This could be easily
fixed, as there are now only a lew
miles of It. Now, with bicycle legisla
tion, we would get that attended to.
POSSIBLE IN FORTY DAYS.
"The time for the Journey would be
about forty days, if every man were a
wheeling expert and were prepared to
take a century run every day. For my
self, I should Just double the days. I
should take eighty days for the trip,
and do something like fifty miles a day.
I might even let the railroad help me
In rainy weather.
"Across the country In eighty days
will be the wheelmen's attraction in a
few years hence. Now It looks funny,
but that Is what Jules Verne's idea of
'Round the World in Eighty Days' did
to people years ago. Now we can belt
the sphere In seventy days."
4 good road across the continent has
been talked of for several years, and if
any one class can have Influence In
bringing it about it Is the cycling fra
ternity. Wheelmen are doing a vast
amount of good work for good roads In
every part of the United States.
DICYCLE RACES AT PARK.
Interesting Contest That Took Place
A large audience witnessed the bi
cycle races among professional lady
and men riders at the Driving park Sat
urday afternoon and applauded the
performances of Lockhart's trained
elephants. The night programme had
to be abandoned on account 01 rain.
The races and the elephants will be the
attraction at the park every afternoon
and evening during the week.
The lady riders participated In three
events and the men In one. There was
also an exhibition half-mile by R. C.
Chadsey and a half-mile boys' race
and a mile event for local contestants.
Altogether the whole was an attrac
tive and novel entertainment and
should attract large crowds throughout
-There-are nine lady -riders:- Misses
Vine, Dennis, Horton, Hewens, Lyall,
Hart and Wlddon and the Wells Sisters.
All of them are competent, fast riders,
and they ride to win. There Is no hip
podromlng feature. Chadsey claims
to hold the Indoor half-mile bicycle
record of 1.04. His exhibition mile Sat
urday was against a strong wind and
was made in 1.16. The other riders are
Max Kahler and Maurice Whitney.
Of the elephants and their Intelli
gence, too much cannot be said In com
mendation of them. Perhaps the fact
that they come here direct from Proc
tor's New York theater is a sufficient
guarantee of the excellence of their per
formance. Miss Purvis, the serpentine dancer,
will be seen during the week. The pro
gramme opens at 2.15 o'clock In the af
ternoon and S.15 In the evening.
The programme for this afternoon
and evening is as follows:
Event 1-Vt-mile match race Miss Vine,
Miss Dennis, Miss Lyall, Miss Hoven.
Event 2 One-mile match race, scratch -R.
