would object to the hub-hub; but that is

Although the Baltimore Dumpling pitched
a great game or ball against the Sen
ators on his first appearance in the box
this year, be pitched a greater one yes
terday. The New York team got but five
hits off of him. These two games make
it look as though MeMnhon had sun It
regained his old time form, and that If
he can hold out Baltimore's chances for
winning the pennant will be greatly en
'banced. The Senators have now lost four games
In succession, with two shut-outs. The
game at Boston, however, was a good
one, and was lost by a scratch. Such
ball as the Senators put up yesterday
will win more times than It will lose.
The Washington team seemed to have
recovered also some of its batting strength.

Joe Corbett, brother of Jim Corbett,
is ambitious to become a professional

The defeat of rittsburg by the Louis

a surprise than It was to the Piratts.
It JuH kept the Pirates from falling into

There has been some talk lately that the
Columbia Athletic Club mould shortly
branch ojt again In the boxing way, and
give a series of entertainments that would

verse comment a year or more ago when
the Lash-IrMng amateur match was
brought off before the Columbia Club, aud a
halt In the boxing line wascalled. As a mat
ter of fact, much that was said about that
contest was wholly without foundation.
Irving struck Lash on the noce several
times and made that organ bleed. The
day after the contest a look at Lash would
not have revca!d fiat hehadb'en touched.
However, while there are members of the

TRACK AND STABLE.
The talk that is often Indulged In that
the runner is the popular horse these days,
and that the harness horse has lost bis at
traction. Is being pretty convincingly dis
proved by events now taking place. If
reports are true, few of the running meet
ings this year have made money for thelr
promoters, where the bookmakers have not
carried them through. This has not been
the cose with the trotters and pacers. At
BagiLaw, Detroit and Cleveland thousands
of iieople congregated every good day to
witness the racing, while at Buffalo, where
a meeting is now going on, tbc grounds
liavo been packed with Immense and enthu
When it is considered that the same law
that olenites on the runners also controls
thl trotters and pacers as regards betting
in New Tork State, the success of tt.e Buf
falo meeting, compared with the dismal
failure cf the Saratoga meeting, becomes
quite striking. Once one of the greatest
running hum) centers In the world, there
has lyen scarcely a corporal's guard on
the Saratoga track any day since the
meeting now In progress there began.
Every good trotting and pacing meeting
held this year has been a financial suc
cess. All of them have: made moey, and
lots of It, for their managers.
There can be but one explanation for
tho present standing of the runner. He
has degenerated. He is now a four, five
or six furlong, and now and then a mile
performer, used in nine cases in ten as a
mere gambling machine, and be has lost his
attraction as a true cport-giver.
Domino and Henry of Navarre ore booked
to come together again in the Flight stakes,
