The Pitching of the One aud the lliuin,
vf the Other Were to Much for
Tummy Johnson' pitching skill nnd
some timely stick work III which "Hi
Hill" Mnsesy played the leading role won
for Serantoii the faille with Toronto
Saturday. That sent the Canadians
'uvvuy froin here with only one victory
"ill of the three KUlnes.
All thut the enemy couhl make oft'
Johnson up to the ninth liming was
Wright's double and Smith's snatch
hit. the bull rolintj Hlowly to a point
half-way between the plate anil third.
Kur elfiht Inning the only Canucks to
plunk their feet on first base were the
two players Just mentioned and Casey
und I.utetibeij? who, respectively, In
the seventh, Were hit by a pitched ball
and made a force hit. Scrantou hail
meanwhile earned four of Us six runs
ami had played a fast and errorless
Hut the pace wus too hot to be main
tained and the Canadians were pre
si nli d with three unearned runs In the
ninth. Ielehaty hit a fast grounder to
.Moss. The ball took a deceptive bound,
Moss jiiKSled it und Del reached first.
Wiivd hit one clown to Illekey that
should have forced Detelianty. but
Hit key was over anxious and couldn't
lield the ball. Tom O'Brien Blncrled Uel
ehanty home. Ward reaching second.
Casey forced O'Brien at second and
placed ard on third. Lutenberg's
single scored Ward and sent Casey to
third, ho coming home on Wright's lilt
that forced I.utenberg at second Smith
was thrown out at first.
MADE FOUR RUNS.
Scranton made four runs and earned
three In the first on Delehanty's bad
throw, a single by Jleaney, O'Brien's
sacrifice and singles by Kagan, Ma
emir? and Massey. The later's hit bring
ing In two of the four. Again in the
fifth Massey was in evidence, his two
baser scoring O'Brien and Kgan who
'had' got on the circuit on a base on
bulls and a single. Massey made another
double In the seventh when there was
no chance for tallying.
lllcKey placed second in place of
Kelster who had a bndly strained
throwing hand. Hickey showed him
self to be a fast youngster who covers a
great deal of territory and puts a great
deal of steam in his work. He has a
cleun, easy swing nt bat which indi
tes that he knows how to hit.
Johnson and JIassey made a pretty
play In the first when Ward bunted one
toward first, Johnson scooping It up to
Massey just before Ward reached the
hag. Massey in the sixth made a
regular Carey play by stretching him
self and making a one-hand catch of
Maguire's wide assist.
Ward who played his first game for
Toronto, was given generous and lusty
applause when he first appeared at the
plate and the same recognition was ae
corded him later. He did not rise to
his new surroundings, however, but
made two erros, one a muffed thrown
ball and the other a wild throw to first.
PRKKMAN'S FINE WORK.
The splendid running patches of Free-
mun in right field when men were on
bases robbed Scranton of three runs.

Wllkes-Barre, Aug. 15. Wllkes-Barre
outplayed Buffalo In the field and at the
bat today. Oruber pitched fairly good
bull, but became indifferent when he fulled
to get good support. Keenan became very
effective, and when the Bisons got men on
bases they could not be batted In. Hie
eighth was a disastrous one for the vis
itors, errors by Rltchey and Lewee al
lowing Wllkes-Barre to score three runs.

KETRICK IS RETIRED.
I'ntrue That Incompetency Had Any
thing to Do w ith It.
A great Injustice has been done Um
pire Larry Ketrlck of this city by, the
publicity given the following dispatch:
Wilkes-Bnrre. Aug. 15. Larry Ket
rick, of Scrunton, recently appointed
umpire in the Kastern league, was released
tonight. Seevral of the clubs had mado
charges of incompetency against him.
There Is not a grain of truth In the
fact that "several" clubs hud made
churges of incompetency aguinst him,
the one. Now that Ketrlck has been
was dismissed on that account. He
has been retired against President
Powers' personal wishes, and for the
sake of another umpire's family. This
statement is not bused on rumor or
supposition, but Is an actual fact.
When Umpire UalTney was re-engaged
last Thursday It meant that either
Hornung. Doescher or Swurtwood
would have to go. Mr. Hornung was
which left the Inference thut Ketrlck
retired Hornung has been taken on
again. There is no need of making the
deal any plainer.
The falsity of the Incompetency part
of the Wllkes-Barre dispatch Is shown
in the fact that Tom Burns, the Spring
Held manager. Is the only league olllclal
who hus made any protest against him.
An umpire who will satisfy all but one
club in a league is a pretty fair article.
This is change about day.
Hornung will umpire at Wllkes-Barre
Ixivett and Bowernian will be the bat
tery. Buffalo is here for three days beginning
OalTiiey has rece lve l Instructions to
remain In Scranton. This was not ex
pected on account of the bud feeling be
tween the King and Jim Fields, the Buf
falo captain, whose club begins a series
here toduy. If Scissors-Lizzie Fields an
ticipates having any further trouble with
tialTney we would advise the player to
try it on in some other neck o' woods than
Scranton. He might get badly hurted. Far
Jim's mike, some kind friend should make
him be good.
v Hiding to Nan Francisco.
Two Newark wheelmen who are rid
in? to Han Francisco on a wager were
In this city Saturday night. They are
Edward Day and John Kinsey. They
proceeded to Itinghamton yesterday.
While here they were the guests of
their friend, W. S. Callahan, proprietor
of the Manhattan House on Penn avenue.

Man Who Committed Suicide at Arch
bald Is Identified.
The Identity of the man who suicided
by taking laudanum wus revealed on
Saturday, when the publisher of the
Garnlk, a Wilkes-Barre Polish paper,
waited upon Coroner Longstreet and
after examining the effects of the dead
man stated that he was, as surmised,
his late editor, Baron Hugo Smeritz,
recently of Cracow, Poland.
Smerltz, he stated, was a highly edu
cated man and an excellent linguist.
He left Wllkes-Barre lust Monday os
tensibly for a pleasure trip, having $50
in his pocket when he took his depar
ture. No money was found upon him
when his dead body was discovered In
the cow field.
The writing In the memorandum
book was translated by the Wllkes
Barre publisher as follows:
"Please make tio dissection of my re
mains. I have poisoned myself with
laudanum. It you find out who t am

country. I took laudanum at 11:30."
Four hours later he wrote: "1 feel

The latter part of the letter was
written hi a scrawling bund und the
dual few lines were difficult to deciph

the drug was beginning to take effect.

Barre fur Interment.
Pittatoa Cars Will Now Be Able lo
Make Their Time.
Today It will be posibly to make
trip to and from Pltston over the Scran
ton Traction company's line In much
better time than heretofore. Last night
Foreman Andrew Conlon and his gang
of linemen began the work of conenctlng
the new feed wire, which Is to supply
additional force to the cable at the lower
end of the line and by 9 o'clock this
morning It was expected that the
"booster" would be In full operation.
J The "booster" which lo an engine of
50 volts capacity is located in the
Providence power house. It furnishes
an Independent supply which will be
first fed to the cable at tlreenwood In
the vicinity of the school house. It
will also be tapped at other points along
the line between Greenwood and Pitts
ton. This will give an 800 volt supply to
the Pittston line, which will, in the
opinion of the Traction company, be
amply sufficient to drive a car up the
steepest hill on the line at a good rate
of speed. .
MANDAMUS ASKED FOR.
Effort to Comuel Alderman C.
Donovan tn Grant Appeals.
A rule was granted Saturday by
Judge Archbald on Alderman C. C.
Donovan of the Twelfth to show cause
why a mandamus should not issue
compelling him to grant appeals in sev
eral judgments In favor of the mem
bers of the Board of Health of Oly
phant against the borough of Oly
phant. Judge Archbald made the rule
returnable this morning at 9 o'clock.
The petition for the rule was filed by
Attorney C. P. O'Malley, of the firm
Warren & Knanp and is signed by 'K.
J. Howard, burgess of Olyphant; A. T.
Potter, treasurer; William H. Davis,
president of the council; William B.
Schubmehl, secretary, and William
H. Davis. Thomas Patten, W'llllain
Tinsley, Patrick Dempsey, J. J. Flynn
and P. W. Padden, councllmon, and
Major Everett Warren, attorney for
the borough of Olyphant.
The petition sets forth that on July 28
last Alderman Donovan rendered four
Judgments against the borough of Oly
phant as follows: One in favor of J. A.
Dolphin fur $108.50, plus $5.15 costs; one
In favor of Edward Cayglll for $4G.67,
besides $2.55 costs; one In favor of
Dr. A. F. Crans for $13.1.34, and $2.55
costs; and one In favor of C. M. Hatha
way for $2.50. with $2.55 costs.
The judgments were rendered to
the plaintiffs for services as members
of the Board of Health of Olyphant.
The burgess and council hold thut the
Board of Health has no legal standing'
and tin authority whatever to Incur the
obligations for the borough of Oly
phant, and that the judgments ore il
legal. The twenty days allowed by law
for an appeal from the judgments ex
pires on August 17, 1890. The council
employed Major Warren to represent
the borough and In u II litigation with
reference to Board of Health matters.
On August 13 Major Warren appeared
before Alderman Donovan and de
manded an appeal, hut the alderman
refused to allow it to be taken.

This is the second time that Burke
