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 explanations of the two games: Morning. SCRANTON. A.B. R. H. P.O. A. E.

This Isn't theory It's fact Every man, wo man and child who rides the SPALD ING which develops these muscles In doing so makes perfect health. We say the SPALDING wheel because It's the only perfect wheel. It's strength means economy. It's light, rigid frame and easy running qualities. Trying to ride a poor wheel Is like trying to keep from drowning with your arms and leg tied a lot of effort and no gain. C. H.

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 for Him. 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. TORONTO FRANCHISE. Will Bo Known as the Albany Club After Thursday. 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. DIAMOND DUST. Providence today. We have no further use for'Horner. Bangor Whig. Outfielder Hill, of Reading, has signed with Syracuse. 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 News. 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 City league." AMATEUR BASE BALL. Olyphaut Browns ' Won the U33 Prize at Farview. 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 ing game. The long drive of Cleary and the good umpiring of McGinnis were tho features. The score; BROWNS, A.B. R. H. P.O. A. E.

BICYCLE ROADWAY ACROSS CONTINENT Mm to Build Oat froa the Atlantic to the Pacific 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 are allowed. 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 Atlantic. "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- DfltrT PAIL TO SEB TNI WOLF AMERICAN, The Finest and Highest Qrade Wheels Made In America. 1896 Wheels, Up-to-Date In Every Particular, $38.50.

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 Saturday Afternoon. 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 the week. -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. C.
