ITeruphln Defrated by SaraDiiith An
Upjatt L'tuplre llio Cause
An eye (jltaraed upon tbe aporting
editor of tbe Appcal as he eat at his
desk at 8 o'clock last night, and
voice solemnly doelnred, "My name is
Conuelly, middle-weight, Battm; I
am in town and ready to fight any
man in the place."
"Fight or hippodrome?"
"The man who stands np before me
most pat np his props and defend
himself. I never had a purely friend
ly boat with a man before an au
dience in my life."
"You don't give a simple exhibition
of science, then ?"
"Science, no! Science is played out
It wont draw a corporal's guard in any
of the big cities now. The thing is to
give and take hard knocks, no matter
how they are delivered. It must be
in earnest, you know. Of course big
soft gloves must be used."
"I'm afiaid tbe town is too moral

Haudeu is away now, and, if you will
hurry up about if, yon might
get a man and a gocd crowd," the re
"I think I've found tbe man. I saw

And, by tbe way, he had a few rounds

The game yesterday was imperfect
ly reported at the Terrace, and as ia
usual in such cases the trouble began
just where it was sure to cause the
most annoyance. It seems strange
that the Western Union cannot con
trol its wires to a sufficient extent to
prevent country railroad stations from
breaking in on the wires just at that
particular stage of the game when a
break is least desirable. Nothing but
gross negligence can account for such a
state of fuels, and it is to be hoped
that the Western Union officials will
contrive to so arrange matters as not
to subject 300 or 400 people to in
Th game between Memphis and
Savannah yesterday was exciting
throughout in spite of glaring errors
in thu second inning on the pare tf
Broughtoa, the new catcher, resulting
in four unourned runs. It is but fair
to Brougblon lo fay, however, ti.at his
play Improved after, the second inning
and he managed to do what few men
have succeeded in doing, stopping
Knonff's hot balls. When he gels
tboioughly Uown to his work be will
doubtless prove a valuable acquisition
to the nine.
Tbe Memphis boys played a plucky
np hiil game and in tbe fifth inning,
with the score 4 to 0 against them, tbey
pounded tbe only Nolan for five runs.
The manner in which it was done de
serves special mention. Lavin bit safe
t? center field fur one bag and para
lyzsd the crowd by stealing cecond.
Whitehead hit safe to left field for two
ba.s. Then Phelan, the old reliable
second baseman, grasped the willow
lovingly and rapped the ball
to left field for three
hags, Lavin and Whitehead scoring.
Knouff hit safe to center field for one
base, bring Pheian home. Broughton
next stepped np to tbe plate, but
through some imperfection of the re
porl, it is not known whether he bit or
not. Thi next heard was "Knouff at
second, Bla"k np, Knonfi'eteals third,
Broughton to second. Black hits to
left field for one bag, Kuoufl and
if need scorin;, Broughton on third,
Bieck steals second. Andrews flies out
to sacond, Fuseelbacb bits grounder to
sacond.out al firat, side out, five runs."
This left the score 5 to 4 in favor of
Memphis, and hopes were strong that
we would down the Savannahs again,
but that delightful consummation was
prevented by a fumble of the pitcher's
on a thrown borne, fields sc r,ng, tie-
the score. In tbe eighth inning
Fields hit Sjf : to cen'er field for
one bag and stole second, Miner
cot base on caileii balls, Nolan
struck out, Gillen hit sate for one
base, Fields tbiown out at third, Mur
ray bits grounder to Whitehead, who
fumble 1, allowing Miller to score, and
make the winning run. No more runs
oa either side were scored in the sub
sequent inning. The features of tbe
game were Knonfl' pitching, the
heavy baiting of Pnelan, Lavin
and Knouff, and the sharp fielding of
the Savannah nine. Tbe oniv Nolan
did not stntain . bis reputa'ion, and
will surely bo knocked out t f the box
before the season i over.
The postponed g-ime to-day was tbe
best of the series between Sivanra'i
and Memphii. Memphis did consid
erable kicking, and in several instances
the right was clearly on her sidp.

ISPROIAL TO TBI AFrBAL.I
Savannah, Gt , April 21!. If ever a
club won a gnme of ball Memphis
should have had this game lu-ilay.
Umpire Btennan knows the game
well ennugb, and it is not tbroMigb ig
nnrance that his rotten, cne-sided de
cisions vteie made, but niaii.ly be
cause the morning papnr here came
out in to day's issue aud blamed him
for tbe defeat of the home club yes
terday. His decisions to-day on balls
and strikes were simply outrageous.
Knouff, tbe Memphis pitcher, cutting
the pla'e in half, still Breunan would
not call a strike except when he knew
the crowd was "on to Lira;" and as
for his base decisions we. 1, the Mem
phis club had no show to win after the
seventh inning When fSneeil and
Black would both earn the base by
gold plidrw, still his "giblets" would
call them out. Also others of
tbe home team, much to tbe
disgust t f tbe Memphis team, their
friends hbie and the audience in gen
eral. It was no'ioeable from the start
the Memphis club was getting the
worst of it. -'an:'gjr Sneed says his
team bos beeu badly handicapped
since their depnr!ure from home, hut
when, by ham work, hi club earns a
victory tin thinks he slicnM have the
game. H i also says he bus known
Brennan for a long while, but
never ktiew until to day be was
borne umpiie. Brennnn was t m late
last right blind drunk, and this is
probably some excuse for I is errone
ous decisions, which were to ccstly to
the Memphis club, lor no in in is nt to
act in his rapacity when be bin been
up nearly tbe wbole niitht beiore ca
rousing and drinking. Houghton, tbe
new catcher, cauvht an txce.'lent
game, and KdouU's pitching was
splendid. Bruughion mid O'l.eary
will be tbe fcatsry tomorrow for
Memphis, O'Day and Slockwell for
tbe home clnb.
At Philadelphia-Philadelphia., 10;
Probable winners tc-day Memphis,
Nashville, Augusta and Chattanooga
Ir Broughton don't make any bad
breaks tbiowing to second to-day, we
are sure to win.
Wednesday, when the rain-storm
came np in Savannah, the Savannah
Club had scored four runs, with two
men on bases and nobody out. Lovely
It is pleasing to state that tbe in
juries of Richmond, who was hurt in
the Chattanooga - Charleston game
Wednesday, are slight, he having only
sprained his ankle instead of broken
his leg, as previously announced.
The Baltimore and Brooklyn clubs
played in Brooklyn yesterday before
6000 people. The home elub played
in fine form, batted Kilroy's pitching
hard and won rather easily. Harkins
pitched with effjet, but three hita be
ing made off him. Smith's work at
short was marvelous. Score : Brook
lyn, 0; Baltimore, 3.
The Eckford Baseball Club had a
meeting Thursday night and sg eed
upon the following working nine:
McGrath, catcher; fiocco, pitcher;
Haley, fii'ot base ; Boro, second base ;
Larkin, third bafe; Smith, short stop;
Ward, left fnld ; Williams, center field ;
Carr, right field. They will play the
Athletics to-morrow evening at the
new park. .
A bout 2000 people witnessed the
second game on State n Iaiand yester
dav between the Metropolitan and
Athltitic clubs. Lynch, besides being
wild,. was batted all over tbe field.
Kennedy pitched in line form, tbe
Metropolitans making but half a
doien hits. Reipschlsger caught bad
ly. Foster was hit in the neck when
be went to the bat for the first time
aud wis forced toi retire, McLaughlin
taking his place. Score: Metropol
itans, 6; Athletic, 14.
The wretched fielding of the Pitts
burgs lost them the game vestsrday.
Miller, Carroll, Mann and Kuehne all
did poorly. Tbe batting was very
evenly distributed, although the totals
of tbe home club are higher. Cork
hill msde the only error for the home
team. Kelly's umpiring was unsatis
factory to both teams, and bad consid
erable effect od tbe score. Baldwin's
catching and Whitney's play at ahoit
were the features. Attendance, 2 '00.

Arrest or llnff.ilo Jack at the Ife
tiet of Two Insulted Young
Thi" who wete in the habit ot vis
iting Court Square previous to its oc
cupation by SiTt. Rogers and his
prairie d igs rosy have noticed tbe
fi.ure of an old man, soiled and
wia'ber-beateu, bis griultd locks fall
ing in tangled masses over his should
ers, occupying a bench on one of the
principal waika of tbe iquare. Day
after day, and week after week, when
tbe weather was fine, be could be seen
sitting, sitting, rarely changing bis po
sition, looking fuitively about him,
rarely or never raising his eves to tin
faco of a passer-by. He fed no nuts
to the squirrels, aever even to much
as spoke to bunuie and his soul
seemed to be dead fo the songs of the
birds in the leafy branches over his
heal. Hundreds who knew him as
"BuCalo Jack" or Jack Sheehan, the
hero, years ago, of hundred fights,
wondered what the autocrat of Pinch
could be doing si many hours upon
hours in Couit Square. It was noticed
at last that he was moit frequently
aeon in tbe af eruoon, when ladies
and children were in the habit of
vbi ing the park, aud at last
there was an indignant whisper
that he wasa vile Balaciois brute, with
a mania for making eigua of an in
decent charactur to young girls who
happeutd to pans him. He was
warned once or twics, but it appears
tint it was difficult lo fasten guilt
upon him, and he continued to oc
t'U y his eeat When S rgt. Rogers
betame the keeper of tbe Square
Buffalo Jack was ono of the adjuncts
of the place, like the squiirttis, the
fountain and the benches. In less
than a week the grizzled visitor
became an object ol suspicion,
and Sergt. Rogers put a close watch
upon him. He was at lat successful
in detecting bim in the act, and re
ported tbe ia je to Pretident Hadden,
two gentlemen who were witnesses
oflerinn to prosecute bim. Two others
declared that tbe man had procured a
number of young and innocent girls
for immoral purposes. It was at first
decided to profucuts bim to tbe full
extent of the law, but a fear of de
stioyiuir Court Square as a place
of resort frr Indies and chil
dren was Buffido Jack's salvation.
He was allowed to go with a
Bevere lectuie and a threat that he
would be arrested and prosecuted for
past ofienrus if he ever put his foot in
tbe patk again. He protested his in
nocence iu tbe face of the most con
viniing proof. But he kept away from
the Square, which has since been free
irom that or any other pollution.
Yesterday evening two young
ladies, whose names it would
not be proper to give, hap
pened to he passing by the cot
ton hed at the corner of Adams and
High stress, when they were startled
and outrnirt l bv tho cor.duct ot a man
on tbe inside o! the high wooden wall,
hut who could be p'atuly sien tbrongl
a crack near which he stood. At that
moment they noticed Capt. Haci ett
approaching and one of tbe young
ladies called him and reported the
facts to him. Tbe other, tbe more
timid of tho pair, said she had
been a witness to simil.tr con
duct on tho part of the brute
on several occasions, but did not have
the oonrage to report him. Capt.
Hackett lost no time in scaling the
fence and securing the man, who was
none other than tbe famous Buffalo
Jack, who seems to be lasciviously in
stne. He was locked np, and the $50
forfeit demanded had not been put np
at midnieht. Tne young ladies declare
their resolution to prosecute him. The
trial will probably be held by Judge
Lee with cloned doors.
