The World of Sport.
A FEW more days and the National
league race will bo ab an end
' with the Brooklyn team once
, more leading. There Is no
hopo now that the Su
perbas can be headed ofl tind Fred
Clarke and his plucky Pittsburg I'l
ratos will have to bo satisfied with sec
ond, place. The men reprosentlnR the
Smoky City made a great' fight for the
'pennant and aroused Pittsburg enthus
iasts to an Intense excitement nnd In
terest In the game, such as has rarely
been equalled in the city. Philadelphia
must be content with third place, which
Is disappointing to the Quaker City en
thusiasts, who confidently expected to
see the pennant of 1900 adorning the
Quaker club house next summer.
The Phillies made a great start this
Reason but unfortunate Injuries to sev
eral of their best players demoralized
the team and enabled the Superbas to
overtake and finally pass them. La
Jole, the heavy-hlttlng, fast-fielding
second baseman, was especially unfor
tunate In receiving Injuries and neither
Dolan nor Potle Chiles, who were his
understudies ever filled his place. The
Phillies pitching staff was weak, also,
nnd this wus another of the things
which created havoc in Billy Shetts
llno's camp.
Boston and Chicago are fighting for
fourth place, with the chances In favor
of the former team, and St. Iiouis is
close behind. Of these throo teams the
work of each has been a great disap
pointment. Boston, with its old stars,
Duffy. Stahl. Collins, Long, Nichols,
Tenney, ct. nl., and strengthened by
such fresh blood as Freeman, Barry
nnd Dlneen was expected to prove one
of the most formidable candidates for
the pennant, but the Beaneaters made
a wretched start, and only towards the
middle of the season began to pick up
in their work.
St. Louis with the pick of last year's
Cleveland and St. Louts teams, cap
tained by the redoubtable Muggsy Mc
Graw and with Robinson secured as
one of the backstops, was Justly con
sidered one of the strongest teams In
the league, and yet the showing made
was deplorably disappointing. It's odd,
too, when one reflects on the wonders
that McGraw and Robinson achieved
last season at Baltimore with a team
composed entirely of Ed Hanlon's
Brooklyns castoffs. The St. Louis ag
gregation consisted of fast fielding,
hard batting players, who In addition
were exceedingly fast on the bases.
The pitching department of which Cy
Young and Jack Powell wore two of
the bright particular stars, was strong
and in Robinson and Crlger, the team
had twS of the best backstops in the
Chicago with several young players
on the team, experimented with the
men throughout the entire season,
switching the players about and half
of the time put a patched up nine in
the field. The pitching department was
one of the best in the league, Griffith,
Garvin, Taylor and Callahan, forming
an especially strong quartette.
Cincinnati and New York were con
sidered weak at the start, but while
the Giants justified the general opinion
the Reds played way beyond their
speed for a time and at one period
stood second. Captain eGoige Davis,
of New York, made a hard fight, but
was handicapped on all hands by pica
yunish management, and strive as he
and his men did, they were unable to
get out of the bad rut in which they
were lodged.
The season was not a particularly
encouraging one, the end find
ing Pittsburg practically the only
city In the circuit which had the fever
to any extent. The condition in Brook
lyn was exceedingly discouraging. The
team led the league, but the rooteis one
nnd nil of Greater New York, blew their
little hoi ns and waved their hats for
the unfortunate tallenders and al
lowed the leaders to go to the dcmnltion
Right off the Bat.
twhled such splendid ball for
Walter Burnham's local team this
season, has returned to his homo in
Philadelphia. The heavy-hitting young
southpaw finished the season In a
blaze of glory with the Buffalo Ameil
can league learn, and his future among
the suherotd tossers promises to bo a
most suuce&bful one. Wednesday af
ternoon Kervin played with the Penn
sylvania Railroad Young Men's Chris
tian association team against Chester,
on the latter nine's grounds. Kervin
pitched and led off in the hatting order.
The game was a ten innlfig one and
resulted 7-7. Kcivln led his team at
the bat with a double and two singles.
Amonff the men who butted against
him were Kuhn, News nnd Townsend,
of the late lamented Allontown team:
Agnew and Noblltt, two crack spmi
professlonnls, and Bonner, who for
merly played with Scranton under the
name of Gafllkln.
Dan McGann, the big St. Louis first
baseman, Is out of the game by reason
of a bad case of blood poisoning he
recently developed.
Pittsburg has won the series from all
the Eastern clubs. Boston wont down
Ignomlnously to the tune of fifteen
tames to five, Brooklyn eleven to eight,
Philadelphia eleven to nine, and New
Fork eleven to nine,
Chicago has secured Roy Patleison,
llio premier pitcher of the American
league. Several other big league teams
wero after tho youngster, but the
Windy Cltyltes bid the highest and
secured him.
Keelor, Hickman, Lajole and Flick
are the only National lcaguo batsmen
who have hit tafely Jn twenty con
secutive games during tho season.
This year's home-run hitting honors
Jn tho National league are divided
among Fllok, of Philadelphia; Mertes,
of Chicago; Hickman, of New York;
Long and Sullivan, of Boston, and
Donlln, of St. Louis.
Pitcher Robertson, of Yale, hns been
elected captain of the Ell's nine. Ho
was chosen In place of Frank tjulmby,
the crack outfielder, who was tho
favorite for the lcadershln, but who
will not bo back at tho college next
year. Robertson Is the twlrlcr who two
years ago shut Harvard out without a
hit or a run.
Edward Fertsch, who officiated In tho
box for Reading last year and during
this season's Atlantic league season,
and who also pitched for Buffalo In
'99, met with an accident Wednesday
which will probably result In the loss
of his left arm. He and a friend start
ed out from Reading on a hunting trip,
and while his companion wus climbing
a fence the trigger of his gun caught
and the gun was discharged, tho load
entering tho pitcher's arm above and
below the elbow and also his left side.
The arm will probably have to bo am
nutated. Rubo Waddoll is again the holder of
tho strike-out record of tho National
league. When the speedy southpaw
last year played with Louisville he es
tablished tho fun-out record of '99 and
Thursday he again won the distinc
tion, when In tho Plttsburg-Chlcago
came ho caused twelve of the men
from the Western metropolis to punc
ture the ambient. But five hits wero
secured off his delivery und of these
Catcher Tim Donohue secured two, a
triple and double.
Donovan and Steelman, last year the
crack battery of the Richmond Atlan
tic league champions, now constitute
a pitching and catching department of
the Brooklyn National league leaders.
Charles Dryden, the clever base ball
writer of the Philadelphia North
American, keeps up a continual fire on
Andy Freedman, which is calculated to
make the genial New York magnate
fairly sizzle. In a recent isue Dryden
tells of the discipline preserved in tho
New York team, and remarks that
every time a ball Is batted to the out
field tho entire infield is fined, and if
an opposing batsman lines 'er over the
fence, every member of the team is
docked. So judicious Is Freedman's
system of fining, says Dryden, that at
the end of this season every Giant will
owe the magnate his next year's sal
ary. In spite of frequent announcements
that at the end of tho season he wl'l
quit the game, Manager Bob Allen, of
Cincinnati, will again be in charge of
a National league team next season. It
Is not likely, however, that he will be
again at the helm of the Reds. Biush,
tho Cincinnati magnate, wants a play
ing manager, and Is after either
Hughey Jennings or Joe Kelly.
Punts and Drops.
THE TWO big games of today will
take place at Cambridge nnd
Philadelphia. Harvard will meet
Columbia nnd the University of Penn
sylvania will face Brown. In view of
the roor showing made by Columbia
against Williams, Harvard does not
anticipate a great deal of trouble in
defeating the eleven which last year
downed Yale. The game will be far
from one-sided, however, as Harvard
is in nothing like tho condition reached
at this time last year, and Columbia,
besides having a strong line, which
will stubbprnly resist the listless
plunging of the Harvard backs, has a
pair of strong ends, to bieak up any
side plays. None of the Harvard
runners have shown up In good form,
and the Cambridge coaches are be
coming discouraged with the lack iat
good material In the department which
they expected to be so strong. Much
reliance Is bing placed, however, upon
big Shirley Ellis, last year's terrific
lino bucking back, and he is expected
to tear up the Columbia defense.
Tho University of Pennsylvania
expects to down the strong Brown
team, without being scored on,
and the splendid work so far done by
the Philadelphia players almost war
rants such confidence. Tho Brown
team is made up of clever, aggressive
players, however, who may spring a
surprise on the Red and the Blue,
Much local interest Is being taken
In next Saturday's game at Easton,
when Lafayetto and Princeton will
meet. A huge number -of Scranton
boys are attending both colleges, aa
a result of which the city Is full of
partisans of both teams.. A large
delegation of local enthusiasts are al
ready arranging to witness tho game.

Much sorrow Is felt among not only
local foot ball enthusiasts but among

Plttston, Oct. 12. The dedicatory
ceremonies of a marker to designate
the site of old Fort Jenkins took place
at West Plttston today. About BOO
people were present from the Wyoming
and Lackawanna valleys. The mar
ker Is located at the western end of
the Ferry bridge and is a substantial
monument, consisting of two fine
blocks of conglomerate taken fronn
quarries at Spring Brook, and was
presented by the Spring Brook Water
company. It was erected through the
efforts of Dial Rock chapter. Daugh
ters of the American Revolution, of

The speaker of the day was William

history of Fort Jenktns and was very
interesting. The programme was fol
lowed by a reception at the home of
Mrs. Samuel Frear, on Linden street.
Old Fort Jenkins was located on the
bank of the Susquehanna river, just
about twelve rods northeast of where
the western end of the Ferry bridge
now stands. It was a log house, sur
rounded by a stockade, and was erect
ed In June 1777, and here gathered the
inhabitants of the valley for their pro
tection against the encroachments of
the Indians and British. In July 1778,
1,100 British and Indians, under Gen
eral Butler, attacked the fort and af
ter a heavy fight, compelled the lit
tle force on guard to capitulate.

Bloomsburg, Oct. 12. Long lines of
special excursion trains, vehicles from
every hamlet and cross-roads town In
the county and multitudes of pedes
trians brought the attendance at tho
fair grounds here today up to fully
30,000 persons, even more than tho.
record-breaking attendance of yester
day. The cloudy skies, with their
menace of rain, did not seem to bo
heeded in the slightest degree and the
lnclosure devoted to pleasure-seekers
presented an inspiring spectacle. Tho
manifold fakirs appeared to be reap
ing a rich harvest of nickels and
dimes, and the main dining hall, with
a seating capacity of l,C0O, was filled
with a hungry mob for hours.
This being the last day of the fair,
everyone was out for tho best time
they could get. Most of them were
sure to get what they wanted In this
respect, for entertainments of all
kinds were to be found. Most of tho
immense throng preferred the horse
races, which were the best of the meet
ing. Fourteen mile heats were trotted
or paced on the track. The course was
poor and its condition was a serious
bar to faBt time. The first race of the
day was the fifth heat or the 2.40 trot,
continued from last night on account
of darkness. Dock, a local horse, got
one heat yesterday, and today had
no difficulty In securing two more,
thereby winning the race. The second
race was a special one, for 2.16 pacers,
this taking the place of the free-for-all,
which was called off, not being
filled. It was won by Carl Brown, a
Philadelphia side-wheeler. The next
in order was two attempts by Demo
cracy, a gray stallion, to lower the
track record. He did not succeed. The
first time he was paced by a running
mate, but did not like that company,
and the second mile he went alone.
The third race of the day was a trot
ting event for the 2.20 class and was
won by Agave, a New York state
mare. The fourth and last race of the
meeting was secured by George M.,
of Girardvllle, Pa.
The huge grand stand wa3 packed
to the roof by an enthusiastic crowd
during- tha racing. Between heats, the
same vaudeville programme was pre
sented from the stage opposite, with
the addition of come good vocal selec
tions by the Kingston Glea club.A de
scription of the races follows:
First Race (Concluded).
Fifth heat This was held over from yesterday
on account of darkness and was won handily
by Dock, v. ho vas in better shape from his rest.
Carl Van nas second and Pocono third. Valley
Boy and Tommy If, were ruled out at the end
of the heat for inability to capture any of the
lite heats.
Sixth heat The field of three was sent anay
to a poor start, Pocono being behind at least
four lengths when the word was given. Carl
Van went up in tho air at once and fell behind.
On the flrat round they were strung out, Dock
leading and I'ocono next. They wound up the
heat in this fashion, Carl being away behind.

A 'few evenings ago a valuable hunt
ing dog owned by John Houston was
stolen from the kennel. It was known
that it was taken near midnight, as
there was considerable noise In the
neighborhood about that time. A well
known character from Carbondale was
in town on that day and suspicion at
once fell on him. On Investigation, it
was learned from the conductor that
two men got on tho midnight train
with a dog. The owner lost no time
in sending a constable, who, after a
few hours' search found it In tho house
of a man namod Moran. As soon as ho
entered the room, nine dogs jumped
from a couch and each seemed as if
it had found its ninnter. At first,
Moran refused to give up tho dog,
but when Constable Healey threatened
to go after tho conductor, ho did not
hesitate, but at once confessed that
it was Mulrooney and not ho that took
the dog,
