Hike Donlla broke Into tho Rams yester
day la McGann's place, as the big first
baseman "was. feeling: 111. It Is Impossiblo
to keep the California!! out. He would
have used a Jimmy if necessary to break
in. Sitting on the bench Is not Mike's
Eame. He -would rather be out on the dia
mond doing something startling". It makes
little difference to him where he is placed,
he has as much confidence In himself as if
he were seated In one of the Normandio's
large cushion chairs.
First i not Donlin's position, but ho
put on the large mitt, and to see him play
would lead one to think that he had been
born and reared In the neighborhood of
the initial sack. He took all sorts of bad
throws In the easiest sort of a manner.
In the ninth Inning he set the crowd
wild by making a phenomenal catch of a
wild throw by Keister. Grady hit hard
towards right. Keister covered a lot of
ground and managed to scoop tho ball up,
but was left In no position to throw. Ho
took a chance, however, and let It go.
Keeping one foot or the base Donlln
stretched out his gloved hand and nabbed
the ball. Grady was right on the top of
the bag when the bail arrived and he ran
full Into the outstretched baseman, Mike
fell and rolled over several times, but held
the ball and Emslie said out. It was the
best play of the-game, which was rather
one-sided from the outset.
Xcrr York's Clinnce.
New Tork never had a chance. She was
up against it strong. Touag was on the
rubber, and while he has pitched in better
form a hundred times over, he was a mys
tery when things appeared a bit danger
ous. Cy did not seem to have his usual
speed; in fact, it looked as though he was
taking a chance on hl3 fielders. The sun
was terribly hot, and the big farmer did
not Intend to extend himself unless in a
The only time he was pinched in the
game was In the first half of the eighth
inning, and he proved that he was equal to
the emergency. Selbach was the first bat
ter, and he made several long fouls be
fore he finally straigtened one out for a
base. Doyle clouted one hard and Keister
was lucky to get in front of It. Smith
picked one out and placed it in left for a
base. With two on bases and only one
out things looked rather bad for St. Louis,
as the score at the time was only 4 to 1.
Then Cy seemed to be letting down, as all
the hits were of the doubt-forbidding or
der. Cy braced up and Xcw York's chances
of winning went a glimmering. He made
Foster and Gleason bile at his Jump balls
and high flies resulted.
"Winnie Hercer, who ha9 proved a stumb
ling block to St. Louis on several occasions
this year, did the twirling for New York.
It waa tho first real good bumping the
Cardinals have ever given the curly-topped
dispenser of shoots and the like. Fifteen
safe hits for a total of twenty-four bases
was the medicine handed him. He swal
lowed it like a game youth, and though ho
tried all of his deceptive things lie could
not fool the St. Louisar.s. for ihey staite'l
to hit, and when In this mood bullets could
have been hammered by their willows.
Donllns Home linn.
Burkett led the team with the bat. One
was a good wallop to left for three bases.
The third was a neat bunt. The second was
a lucky one. It was very kind ot the of
ficial scorer to hand Jess the bingle. How
ever. It would be murder to take It away
from him. It happened this way: Criger.
Toung and McGraw were on tho bags in
the tourth when Burkett popped one Just
over second. For awhile It appeared as
though Van Hahrcn had a chance to nab
the ball as it kind of hung in the air.
Toung not wishing to be doub'.cd hui.-d
his base until the ball hit the ground. Than
he started for third like the elepnant that
pulls the harrow at the Fair Grounds. Cy
should have been camped on the bag. He
was not, and Van Haltren got the ball on
the first bound and shot it to Hickman in
time to rettre Young.
Donlin's home run in the ninth was a
beaut. It came with Wallace on second.
The ball left Hike's willow and sailed on a
line for the right field bleachers. It hit the
high fence about two Inches from tho top.
This blngle sort of sent Mercer skyward
for Toung, Burkett. Donovan and Keister
followed with hits and six runs crossed the
rubber. The official score:

FIELDING ASD BATTING AVERAGES.
MeGraw Leads anil Heldrick In Glr
tnar Burkett a Hob for the Place.
Keister Jumped Into the .300 class of
sluggers last week. Billy lias been hitting
the ball hard and consistently for the past
month, and promises to reach the figures
that were opposite his name last vcar.
when he was considered, next to McGraw.
the most reliable hitter among the Orioles.
McGraw dropped down a few points dur
ing the -week. He did not get his share
of the blngles In the Philadelphia series.
Jesse Burkett continues to climb. Two
months ago, "when he was hitting some
thing like .233. he made a wager that he
would finish the season with an averago of
.400 or better. Just now It appears ho has
an excellent chance to win. He gets hits
nowadays no matter who is on the rubber
for the opposing teams. As was predicted
last year, Heldrick is hitting better than
ever. He Is young and ambitious, ,and Is
bound to improve, although there is not
much room. Donovan continues to bat his
speed. He Is fielding and running bases
In good form. WTallace has his slumps.
Roderick Is a game boy, and .although they
&re going against him bad Just at present,
lis will not quit, but keeps n plugging.
Things are bound to break his way before
long. Tho averages:

SOME CURIOUS CRICKET HISTORY.
Peculiar Incidents Voted by EnKlish
Cricketers Accidents on the Field.
In an interesting article on cricket in an
English magazine of the current month
W. F. Ford, the well-known exponent of
that game, tells of some curious incidents
which occurred in games in which he lias
f4.4..i.(ifan;u) ,iu UL HUUIU UUIL IlUVt! UCCIl
on the records for 100 years and over. As
llr. Ford is a gentleman of high standing,
we are bound to believe what he gives out
as gospel, although some of the experiences
verge on the miraculous.
Cricket had been played, or at least rec
ords kept, for about Iltty years betore pads
were invented in 17ft0. yueer pads they
were, too, consisting of thin boards set
anglewlso to allow the ball to glance oil",
and the inventor was "Three-lingered
Jack" of the famous Hambledon Club, the
original nursery of cricket. He had lost one
or two fingers, and consequently had the
handle of his bat grooved, so as to get a
better grip of it. The arrangement was no
doubt a necessity, considering Jack's nffi.c
tlon; but a more curious arrangement has
been seen in actual use the batsman liking
a heavy bat for slow bowling and a light
one for faster deliveries, had a hole boied
in the back of his bat about six Indies
from the bottom, into which ho could screw
a loaded dlso of wood, thureby Increasing
the weight of his bat as required. He may
have Imitators, but they are yet undiscov
?.. VT1Ie.!)at' '"deed. Is often responsible
tor the tall or the batsman's wicket; out
while bad manipulation is the main cause,
yet this trusty friend often proves untrue,
as happened a short time ago, when, the
batsman having made a good stroke, a
splinter was broken off by the forco of the
hit and knocked the ball off. Wells, the
f,REex Player, had a stranger experience in
lbt0, for the blade parted company with
the handle (bats were often mada In one
Piece then), and, leaving the handle in his
.1,1 JIew, ?ver llis shoulder and disman
tled the. wicket. A third and similar story
is equally true:
"The string that bound a broken bat gava
way unnoticed and dislodged a bail the
batsman being in the act of striking;
hence, as in the other cafces, he was out
hit wicket. But one wonders that tho laws
do not provide for so untoward an incident,
which ought never to bo fatal to tho strik
"Fast bowlers sometimes break a stump,
but I have seen quite a slow howler do so,"
says Mr. Ford, hitting it presumably on
tho exact point of least resistance, whila
on the other hand I havo seen a fast bowler
palpably hit the wicket without knocking
down a bail, and this happened twico in
one innings! One hardly dares to tell tho
story and be believed, but Shacklock of
Nottingham was the bowler.
"Here is another almost incredible storv,
but true. Last year my brother, F. G. J.
Ford, hit a ball straight back so hard that
it struck the opposite wicket and bounded
back, within his own popping-crease, while
I myself once hit a bull which caught In
the edge of the thatched roof of the pa
vilion and ran about a foot up tho thatch,
though no one could understand how a,
ball which was necessarily dropping could
take sucli a course.

Corbclt and Ruhlin Are Hard at
Work at Bath Beach McCoy
Js Developing Inin a Rider
BY DAN SMITH.
New York. Aug. 5 "With the dropping of
the curtain on the local pugilistic stage on
August 31 there will be inscribed on tha
pages of prize ring history the. passing or
rehabilitation of two former heavy-weight
world's champions and the possible crea
tion of n new "King of All Fighters."
Two contests that make possible such a
condition of affairs are now scheduled for
decision at the Madison Square Garden. I
refer to the twenty-five-round bout between
"Gus" Uuhlin nnd "Bob" Fitzslmmons,
scheduled for August 10, nnd the battle be
tween "Kid" McCoy and James J. Cnrbett.
The present heavy-weight champion.Jnines
J. Jeffries, may also fight again. Corbett,
former holrler of the title of heavy-weight
champion, hopes to find through his con
test with "Kid" McCoy an avenue to a
realization of a cherished ambition to oneo
again light Jeffries and obtain the pugilistic
crown. Should "Pompadour Jim" score a
victory over the light and nimble Hoosier
there is no doubt that Jeffries will give him
another match. On the showing made by
him in their last bout and with a little bet
ter luck, Corbett believes that lie can wrest
the coveted title from the big California
boilcrmaker. Should Corbett meet with de
feat at the hands of McCoy the passing of
the pompadourcd one n3 a factor will be
Another pugilist who has left the glory
and superiority associated with tho holder
of the heavy-weight championship title is
Fitzslmmons. It is the ambition of the
lanky fellow to once again sign himself
champion of the vtorld. He hopes to ac
complish his purpose by a victory over
Ruhlin and another mutch with Jeffries, be
lieving that he will surely beat the Califor
nia Hercules If ever they come together
It certainly behooves Fitzslmmons to win
from Ruhlin if he expects to cut a promi
nent figure in future prize-ring events. De
feat to him will mean his relegation to the
ranks of the "has-beens."
Fighters Sized Up.
"Lanky Bob" realizes the Importance of
a victory over the "Akron Giant." and he is
undergoing a careful and systematic prepa
ration for the bout with Ruhlin. At his Ber
gen Beach training quarters the former ter
ror of heavy-weight fighters boxes every day
with "Bob" Armstrong, Sharkey's former
sparring partner, and "Knipe," the amateur
Good judges who have seen Fitzslmmons
exchange blows with Armstrong believe
that the Cornishman has gone back. Ac
cording to the critics in question, he has
lost much of the speed that used to charac
terize his efforts in former battles. His
ability to avoid blows seems to have de
creased father than improved. In several
bouts with Armstrong the big colored fellow
has managed to lana often and with effect
on "Lanky Bob."
When Fitzsimmons's attention has been
called to his apparent loss of form, he has
explained it by saying that tho wrestling
mat on which he stands when sparring Is
responsible for it all. This Is certainly a
plausible explanation, as anyone who has
ever sparred on a wrestling mat knows that
it makes a man's feet sink heavily in tho
padding, and his movements are consider
ably slower than on tho canvas floor ot the
Despite the unfavorable comments of the
critics Fitzslmmons expressed the greatest
confidence in his ability to defeat Ruhlin.
"Lanky Bob" says that he feels better to
day than he has for two years past. His
hitting power is unimpaired and his
strength fully equals that displayed by him
in ills championship days as a lighter. Al
though Fitzsimmons's right hand i3 a bit
crooked, owing to surgical manipulation, ho
says that it Just a3 serviceable in delivering
a knockout blow as it ever was. In addi
tion to ids sparring bouts, Fitzslmmons also
does considerable road work, takes wrest
ling exercises and also makes horsesh0C3
and shoes horses.
Tho training of Ruhlin, who is looked
upon as a possible heavyweight champion,
is Interesting. The big "Akron Giant," who
has always shown more or less nervousness
hi a fight, displays none of this timidness in
his exercise bouts. Since he has been in
training at Bath Beach, Ruhlin has spirred
considerably with Tommy West, "Matty"
Mathews and George McKadden. Although
the three men mentioned are smaller in
stature and lighter in weight than the Ohio
boxer all are hard hitters, and in their sev
eral bouts with Ruhlin have tried hard to
place -Gus" in the land of dreams and
shadows. None of them has succeeded In
accomplishing his purpose, and few of them

For genuine cleverness sporting men re
gard the Corbett-McCoy contest as the
greatest ever scheduled for decision in th
prize ring. There is not a trick in the game
with which McCoy and Corbett are not fa
miliar, and their methods ot attack and
defense are not unlike. At feinting and side
stepping they are both past masters. Cor
bett's most effective blow Is a left-hand
hook: McCoy's most reliable punch is of
the same character. McCoy is perhaps the
In talking about McCoy's most effective
blow to a party ot friends at his training
quarters at Bath Beach to-day, Corbett
said: "McCoy is a very shifty fellow, but
he has only got one good punch, a left
hand swing, and I think a clever boxer can
stop it. I may be mistaken, but I don't
believe he will ever reach my jaw with It,
and I'm sure I will take his measure."
Corbett is training with Ruhlin at Bath
Beach, and the two big fellows will spar
together until August 10. Corbett has
leased the pier running out from Avoca
Villa, at Bath Beach, and It is his inten
tion to build a ring in the center of the
pier, which runs out 200 feet from the
shore. That part of the pier on which the
ring will be pitched will be closed in with
glass, so as to prevent drafts from creep
ing Into the room, but giving the sun plenty
of chance to shed its rays on the occu
pants of the Inclosure. Corbett Is a great
believer in sun baths.
McCoy has begun his preparation for
tho battle at Saratoga. The "Kid" Is af
c.te5 thca lunS trouble, and he has se
lected tho Spa ns his training ground, in
preference to the seashore, because he be
lleves the dry air will havo a healthier

Charles W. Whitney, the manager of the

preliminaries to his star bout between San
ders and Gabrilllac at the Fourteenth
Street Theater to-night. The first will be a
four-round go with two 100-pound lads wear
ing the mits. the colored Dumniv Schenk
and Young Wolcott. who went three fast
lounds to a draw last Monday evening. The
second will be for four rounds between
Frank Cecker and Pete Sweti'cy. The third
preliminary will almo-t out.-hine the main
event in point of interest, as Young Sharpe
and A. H. Bobbins, the welter-weight crack
from Qulncy, 111., will dispute their rela
tive ability with the gloves for six rounds.
If Robblna is half as good as his friends
from up the river claim him to be. this
latter bout will be a very warm argument.
Indeed. Both Gabrilllac and Sanders are
down to the weight agreed upon, 121 pounds,
and are anxious to get at it.

Sidney I.ncas Is a Dead One Scandal
Over Illuming of Grand Old Imp.
New York, Aug. 5. There was a very great
deal that was interesting and convincing
about Saturday's Brighton Cup. It was the
kind ot race that will be talked about and
be written about for many a long day, and
yet at that.it was not quite the satisfying
event that had been hoped for, apart from
the scandal that the running of grand old
Imp inevitably aroused.
The completeness of the event would have
been much greater if a really representative
3-year-old had been In the field. Prince of
Melbourne or Kilmarnock, for example. Her
bert is at best a smart selling plater, and
Sidney Lucas probably no better, despite
his Western form.
At any rate, whatever Sidney Lucas
might have been, if he had been handled
differently, he is to-day a miserably leg
weary, heart-broken horse, even though he
looks well enough bodily, after the brutal
campaigning he has had. Neither of these
colts had any real license in the race, as the
event proved, and the absence of 3-year-olds
of higher class lost a splendid opportunity
to see how the existing'scale of weight for

RUN DOWN BY AN ENGINE.
Aged Negress Killed on tne Mer
chant's Uridge Approach.
Llizzie Hayden, an aged negress. who for
merly lived at Fiftenth and Market streets,
met a tragic death on the we3t span of tho
Merchants' Bridge yesterday morning. A
west-bound Terminal passenger train over
took her on the bridge and hurled her
through the trestle to the ground, seventy
five feet below. Death was instantaneous.
There is no foot-walk on the bridge, it be
ing intended for railway traffic only, and
pedestrians are not allowed to cross on It.
In some way the old woman managed to
get on the bridge unobserved In East St.
Louis shortly after 5 o'clock, and started
across. It was learned later that sho hail
come across that way on several other oc
casions and knew about what time tho
trains were due, but yesterday morning sh
missed her calculation. She had crossed tirs
water line and was nearlng the western ap
proach when she heard the rumbling of tho
train behind her. She turned to see how
close it was and saw that It was upon her.
There was no room for her to stand at
either side ot the track, because the road
way Is only wide enough to permit tho
passage of trains. In desperation the oM
woman started to run a race with the train.
As the train bore down upon her. Martin
Fergupon, the engineer, made a desperata
effort to stop the engine, but without avail.
In another Instant the engine struck her
and pitched her body through the trestle.
The body was picked up by the train crew
and taken to the morgue.
Ida Carter, a negress, living at Thirteenth
and Pine streets, called at the morgue yes
terday afternoon and Identified the body ad
that of Lizzie Hayden.
Sam Gardner, a negro living at No. 1613
Market street, also identified the body at
the morgr.e late last night, as that of Liz
zie -Hayden. Gardner says her only son died
at the City Hospital about two years ago
from the effects of a prolonged spree. Wil
liam Gardner, the dead woman's husband,
was watchman at the Grand Operahousa
in 1372. He died about ten years ago. Mrs.
Hayden has a sister in St. Paul, Minn., and
some relatives In Jefferson City. Mo.
EXPORT SOUTHERN NEGROES.
Hawaiian Sugar Operators Want
Them to Work Their Plantations.
New Orleans, La., Aug. 5. John Hind and
J. B. Collins, two large sugar operators In
the Hawaiian Islands, reached hero to-day.
They have come to get some Louisiana
plantation negroes and take them to Hawaii
In the belief that they will prove very suc
cessful on the islands.
Coming on the heels of the race riots, the
prospects for deporting several thousand
Southern blacks to Hawaii is looked upon
with the greatest favor. It is believed that
Messrs. Hind and Collins represent a schema
of extensive proportions and one that will
relieve Louisiana of many surplus negroes.
It is thought that possibly the Introduc
tion of Southern negroes into Hawaii may
prove the first step ln solving the vexed
negro problem that bobs up at every turn
and only last week placed New Orleans
under martial law.
Since the annexation of tho Hawaiian
Islands the Asiatic labor problem out there
has been revoked by law. The United
States does not propose to indulge in the
importation of Chinese, Japanese and Por
tuguese labor when she has good American
citizens who can do the work as well or
better. The Southern negro is an American
citizen and will come within that law.
-Moreover, ne can be spared.

The newspapers of tho city, particularly
the Times, has denounced editorially the)

also taken a hand in the matter. The min
isterial alliance will discuss the subject to
morrow morning at a regular meeting and
steps- will be taken to defeat the proposed

minds of the sporting fraternity.
It Is predicted that enough pressure will
be brought to bear to compel Chief Hayes
and Judge McAuley to rescind their order.
