THE PITTSBURG- DISPATCH, THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 1889.
THE STARTALL RIGHT
Our Home Talent Down Anson
As an Opener.
TIMELY HITTING DID IT.
Four of the Chicago Club Players
THE LEAGUE'S INAUGURAL GAMES.
Borne Interesting Horse Eaces at the
GENERAL SPORTING NEWS OF THE DAI
As an opener lor the championship season
of this.year we hadn't much to complain
about yesterday. As of yore, Adrian
Anson, despite his recent achievements in
various parts of the globe, was placed on a
back seat. The home talent was not as
perlect as a piece of machinery, but they
made an impression just at the right time.
Those local patrons ot the national game
whose minds are now again consoled by
dreams of a Pittsburg pennant club may
probably see some great playing this year
by the home gentlemen. Yesterday's work
indicated that something of a much better
quality will be displayed.
If fault could be found with anything it
was the weather. Somehow or other the
Chicago club always brings rain with it
when it opens the season here. Just before
the street parade started at 1:45, a heavy
thunder shower came down. About an hour
later, when the procession was well on its way,
another heavy shower came down, and as a re
sult the grounds were in a wretched and soft
condition. The sun came out, however, and
did much toward drying up the diamond.
A GOOD CEOWD.
Despite the rainfall and the appearance of
more, there were about 4.000 in tlie park when
Umpire Lynch called the boys to action. It
just seemed as if a day only had intervened
between Lynch's last appearance here and his
appearance yesterday. He looked just as
positive and emphatic as ever. The only differ,
ence was bis new padded vest, which gives him
in some respects the appearance of a cropper
And the man with th8 voice from Saw Mil
Bun was on hand with the same unearthly yell
that shook the nerves of man and beast last
year. The voice, however, has changed its lo
cation from the left field bleaching boards to
those of the right.
Generally speaking the came was an interest
ing one. The local representatives played con
siderably better than they have been doing
in exhibition games; in fact they didn't look
like the same team of players. There were
some costly mistakes made in the most unac
countable way. The diamond was in a soft
and slippery condition and to a great extent
mistakes were pardonable. The boys hit lively
at the right time and if a system of this kind
could be sustained we may make matters ex
ceedingly warm for the leaders.
CABBOLIi BANGED ATTAT
at the ball in a style that reminded one of his
former glories. Sunday was slightly injured in
the sixth inning and Maul replaced him. Billy
was running for a short flv from Pleff er's bat.
The rnn was a long one and Sunday cot just
near the ball as it came down. He held out his
hands and it struck him on the wrist, hurting
him so badlv that he had to retire. Galvin
pitched a fairly good came. He was hit fre
quently, but he kept the cracks so well scat
tered that they were of little account. His own
errors were responsible for the first three runs.,
Miller supported him welL
Hutchinson, the new pitcher of the Chicagos,
was in the box for the visitors, and set out at a
pace that gave people to understand that he
was a terror. However, the vard measure was
applied and his size taken. He pitches a very
speedy ball and uses two or three very decep
tive curves. It probably would not be wise for
batters to fool with Mr. Hutchinson too much.
He evidently is a little nervous, and when the
dogs are let loose he loses his head a little.
Farrell supported him extremely well.
The contest opened 'iery discouracmcly for
the home champions. After they had been re
tired without a rnn the Western representa
tives went in and made three runs in the easiest
and quickest way imaginable.
JEEMS A LITTLE OFF.
Old Jeems evidently hadn't his eye on the plate
as he gave Ryan and Van Haltren each their
hise on balls. Jeems added to this misfortune
by making a bad throw to first, allowing Ryan
to get to third and Van Haltren to second.
Duffy then thumped out a hit to left field, and
Ryan scored. A passed ball sent Duffyto sec
ond, and Anson's hit brought in Van Haltren
and sent Duffy to third. Another wild throw
by Galvin allowed Duffy to reach home. The
next three men went out in order.
In the sixth inning Ffeffer led off with a sin
gle and got to second on Farrell's hit to left.
Gnmbert reached first on a muffled throw by
Beckley and Ffeffer got home on a ridiculously
wild throw by Kuehne. Farrell was retired at
first bva dextrous throw by Miller. Burns
reached first on a life, and after Hutchinson
had been retired Ryan made a long single to
center and Gumbert got home.
It was the sixth inning before the home
heroes made a mark. It looked as if a white
wash was in store for them until Hanlon
reached first on balls after Snnday was out.
Hanlon knocked out a single, and Dunlap's
long two-bagger to deep left center brought
bothj-nns iu. Carroll rapped a single into een
ter, and Dunlan tied the score amid wild yells
The next Inning was livelier still. "Pop"
Smith led off with a good hit to center and
stole second. Galvin struck out, but Maul
made a slow scratch hit toward third base.
Hanlon then came again with a single, and
Smith scored. Maul going to third. Beckley
next banged ont a single, and another run
came in. Dunlap yanked ont another to right,
and 2 runs came in. Carroll made a bit, and
that, combined with a wild pitch, brought in
the last run. Following is the full score:

TO-DAY'S HOME GAME.
Bnttcrlrs and SInke-Up of the Two
The local champions will take another shy at
Anson's team this afternoon if the weather
permits. It is not unlikely that we will have
victory perched on our banners again. Last
evening Manager Phillips could not say defi
nitely what the home battery will be. If the
weather is fine and warm Conway and Miller
will officiate, and if it is cool Stalev and Miller
will play. Gumbert and "Silver" Flint will be
at the points for tbe visitors. The two teams
will probably be made up as follows:

Park. Previous to proceeding to the park, a
procession consisting of the members of the
clnbsm carriages, and preceded by a band of
music paraded tbe streets. The game was
void of unusual features. A high wind prevailed
which interfered somewhat with the work ot
tbe fielders. McGeachy was hurt during the
first inniuc, and his place was taken by Daily.
The visitors, as a rule, were outplayed at near

WASHEfOTOS, April 24. The opening game
for the championship here to-day between the
Washington and Philadelphia clubs was wit
nessed by more than 4,000 persons. E. Bright,
who was apparently nervous, dropped two easy
thrown balls at the plate. The misplays being
responsible for the scoring of five unearned
runs, he did better work. The other members
of the team played sharply, Keefe was wild,
but did good work, and Bufunton pitched a
steady game. Score:

A BIG SURPRISE.
Anson Resolves to Part With Baldwin, Daly,
Fetltt and Snllivnn.
President Spalding and Captain Anson have
resolved to make a radical change in the Chi
cago club. Mr. Anson caused considerable sur
prise in the city yesterday when he stated that
he had unconditionally released Pitcher Mark
Baldwin, Catcher Tom Daly, R. H. Fetltt and
Martin Sullivan, tbe fielders
During a conversation last evening he some
what modified tbe first announcement by say
ing that any club to whom tbe Chicago club
owes money can have tbe nick of the players to
settle matters. He went on to say that it is
not so much because of inferior playing that the
players have been released as it in consequence
of questionable conduce Anson emphatically
stated that his team must he made up entirely
of gentlemen, and men who will conduct them
selves as snch at all stages. He also states
that Baldwin will pitch good ball this year, and
will be a nsefnl man for some clnb. President
Spalding is quoted as saying that he means to
break up the drinking habits of players in his
KELLY OIUST REFORM.
Boston Directors Not Satisfied With MJcb
nel'a Wort as Cnplnln.
Boston, April 24. The directors are sad be
cause of Kelly's failure thus far to meet their
expectations and one of them said to-day that
the Captaincy would be taken away from him
unless be braced up wonderfully.
Tbe triumvir say that the proposition of the
New York clnb to play the opening games
there on account of tbe hitch over the Polo
Ground, was made too late, and furthermore
that tbe weather here is too cold for ball play
ing and they don't want "our people" to freeze
to death on tbeir grounds.
Manager Hart has at length been formally
invested with full control of tbe men, both on
and off tbe field, power to select the team and
instruct them how to play their positions. In
short, the new manager has now supreme con
trol of the Boston team at all times.
Mr. Day Gives Up.
When Mr. John B. Day heard of the Gov
ernor's veto he said:
"That settles It. We can't play any more on
the Polo Ground."
"What are your plans nowT" I asked.
"We will open at Jersey City to-morrow, play
there Thursday and continue at Staten Island
on Friday probably."
"Will you finally select Staten Island for a

as possible." -New York Herald.

ABOUT FROCTOR KNOTT.
Tbe Chicago Stable Trying to Bay tho
Fnraon Race Horse.
Chicago, April 24. The managers of
the Chicago stable are negotiating for the
purchase of Proctor Knott, but they 'refuse to
give more than 20,000 for him. Bryant de-"
Clares he will not take less than 25,000. Mr.
Johnson is conducting the negotiations from
Mr. Hanklns, who is at tbe head of the Chi
cago stable, confidently said yesterday that the
sale would not be consummated until after the
Latonla meeting, if at all. 'Personally,'' he
said, "lam rather fearful of Proctor Knott's
-future. My advices from Louisville would
indicate That the animal is very backward in
his training, and Bryant will not he able to get
him into form for the Kentucky Derby. He
will meet some good horses there, and if he is
not in first class shape will certaihlyget beaten.
We want winners, not losers. My intention is
to own tbe animal that will win the American
Derby. If Proctor Knott proves himself to bo
winner among the list of candidates be will
wear our colors June 22 next."
What about Galen?"
"Mr. Johnson writes me that he cannot place
Galen. The colt will go to the post id his first
race regarded by us as a short distance horse.
We do not know how far he can run. Present
Indications' would lead us to believe that he
will not say a distance. Still we may err in our
Judgment. He will be run Into form and it
vftl tilra lint a rnnr ahnrt tlmn to find out What
T"the colt can do."

AFTER MAN! DIFFICULTIES.
A Family of Polish Emigrant Become
Americans bv a Scratch.
Philadelphia, April 2-L Among the
steerage passengers on the steamer Switzer
land, which arrived on the 17th inst., was
Frank Binkowski, a German Pole,
with his wife and four children.
The Emigrant Inspector found that
Binkowski had no means of support, but
was told by the Pole that he would be taken
care, of by his brother-in-law, Michael
Szutt, who resided in Chicago. The in
spector telegraphed to Szutt at the ad
dress given by Binkowski, but the tele
graph company the following day
notified him that no person by that name
resided at the given address, and that his
telegram remained undelivered. Under the
law the family were obliged to remain on
the Switzerland and be senUback on the ves
sel on her return trip.
The Switzerland left her wharf at 6 o'clock
this morning lor Antwerp, and later in the
day a telegram was received from Szutt di
recting that Binkowski and family be sent
to Chicago and another from the Chi
cago representative of Peter Wright &
Sons, the agents of the steamship line, stat
ing that the money to pay the fares to Chi
cago had been deposited with him. The
steamship was then far down the river
with the unfortunate family on board.
Telegrams were, however, hastily for
warded to the Delaware breakwater,
and late this afternoon the steamship was
signaled, as she was passing out to the ocean.
A tug was sent ou( to her. the Polish family
was taken ofi' and bronght into the break
water, and late to-night they were sent back
to Philadelphia and will be sent to Chicago
in the morning.

SrECIAI, TZLZOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
"Washington, April 24 "If the elec
tion were to recur to-morrow Cleveland
would have 200,000 majority in New York."
This was the startling utterance ot an ex
official and prominent Republican of Cen
tral New York, who arrived in the city this
evening. The remark was made to a New
York Bepnblican Congressman, who re
peated it to the correspondent of The
Dispatch. The Congressman explained
that in all his experience he had never
known so great dissatisfaction with an ad
ministration in its first days on account of
the manner of distributing patronage.
"Garfield displeased the stalwarts, bnt he
pleased his own crowd. Harrison pleases
nobody. He won't move. There is no ac
tion in him. He is in a trance. He wants
to please both sides where there are factions,
and he only succeeds in disgusting all
sides. "Why don't he clean ont the consuls?
Especially the confounded highbred con
suls who were put in by Republicans apd
held over by licking the boots of the free
trade administration. And then there are
the'postoffices, the revenue offices, pension
agents and so on. Bnt what's the use talk
ing. He won't do it. He's like a block of
wood. Yon can't make an impression on
him if you talk yourself blind. Some of
the others are better. Clarkson is a daisy,
but so far there is only one Clarkson."
This friend of mine spoke exactly as he
felt. He is a power in politics in New
York, a man oi great wealth, a high tariff
iron manufacturer, and when he says that if
the election were held again Cleveland
would have a tremendous majority he tells
an eloquent story of the universal dissatis
faction with'the methods of President Har
rison. BEATER VISITS HAERISON.

"Washington, April 24. Governor
Beaver dropped down upon the Capital late
last night, and to-day spent some time with
President Harrison. The announced reason
for his visit is that as President of the
American Forestry Association he came to
confer with others similarly interested with
a view to making arrangements for the com
ing Congress, and thai he visited the Presi
dent to urge that official to say something
nice for forestry in his first message to Con

bnt he took occasion also to say something
in favor of a candidate or two for Pennsyl
vania offices, and specially a last word tor
Donath for Public Printer. He conld give
no reason why important appointments for
Pennsylvania are not made, and he would
venture no opinion on the charges made by

Chaeleston, S. C., April 24. Mr. G.
"W. Cramer, of Abbeville county, publishes
the following unique advertisement in the
Abbeville Medium: ,
On February 5 my beloved wife Charlotte,
after an absence of 18 months, returned to her
home and conjugal duties. She was welcomed
with joy, for I fondly thought that rav troubles
were over and I could spend the rest of my days
in the fear of God in a home blest wltn content
and domestic love. The second day
after her coming home she went- to'
town on a shopping excursion and made
snch purchases as she desired, for my purse
was open to ber. Bnt no one knows ths trouhla
I see. Abont tbs 1st of March sba made some
objection to an imaginary will sue said 1 had
made, in which she was not provided for. I
calmly reasoned with her that everything had
been arranged bylaw for ber comfort and
security after my death, but all I said fell upon
unwilling ears, and my kind intentions were re
jected by a perverse temper.
On March 2 she was off again, taking her de
parture as suddenly as she had made her ap
pearance nearly a month before. Why she left
I do not know. Sbe bad a cood borne. My
nurse was open to ber and I treated ber kindly.
I do know, however, tbat sbe went off in
tbe buggy of ayoung married man who bus as
much as he can do to take care of his own
family. It is a strange attachment, for she is
many rears bis senior. My object in publish
ing this is to say that if there is
anv law to punish one for "alienating a wife's
affections" this young man shall feel its weight.
Also to let the public know that she had a good
home when she returns to her wifely duties;
that I will not be responsible for any of her
contracts when away from home, and that I
have always treated ber as an honorable man
and lawabiding citizen should treat bis wife.
' The beloved Charlotte and her young
married inamorato have not yet returned
from that buggy ride. .
WHAT'S IN THE WIND?
A Hint Abont Some Startling; Legislative
Disclosures Soon to Come.
Philadelphia, April 24. The Record
this morning refers at length to Senator
Bntan's charges against the State adminis
tration, and says: .
"Senator Butan's charges that the Gover
nor made contracts lor the rebuilding of the
Executive Mansion before the appropriation
bill tor that purpose had passed the Legis
lature is specific, and there Is little doubt
put that it is true, as is also the charge that
the present administration has increased the
pay roll of the employes aboutthe Executive
offices. The "other day a bill was passed
increasing the pay of the employes of
the Attorney General's office, which should
never have been done, but the measure was
basked by Mr. Andrews and Mr. Dele
mater, and, of course, it went through. The
Attorney General, it he wants extra clerical
help, should be compelled to pay for it out
of the fees of his office. He is the best paid
officer in the Commonwealth, his fees and
other emoluments amounting to over $7,000
per year in addition to his salary, and he
also is empowered to hire and pay from the
State Treasury special counsel to look after
such cases as he does not care to bother
"There is no doubt, as Senator Butan
says, that the present administration has
been the most expensive Stata administra
tion ever known to the Commonwealth, and
tbat can be shown by the State Treasurer's
and Auditor General's report; but Senator
Bntan need not go so far away from the
home of hii friends to show mismanagement
in State affairs. Before the session is over
the public will be given some facts upon
this point, compared with which Senator
Butan's charges will appear trifling, grave
as they are."

be friends, but Quay is not. Sherman ad
mits to-night that Quay was very mad, and
he admits tbat he had some reason to feel

him. Quay still insists that if Sherman's
intentions were as good as his professions,
he would cause Alphonso Hart to decline
the office of Solicitor of Internal Bevenue,
which he wanted for Judge Gilkesou, of
Pennsylvania. But Sherman begs to de
mur. "I did not recommend Mr. Hart for the
place," said he to-night, "and if the Attor
ney General chooses to offer a place to Mr.
Hart independently of me, and if that place
is accepted for Mr. Hart by Messrs. Mc
Kinley and Butterworth without my being
concerned in the matter at all, I could not

COSTA EICA AND THE CANAL.
Why the Bepnbllc Protest. Agnlnit the Nic
aragua Canal Contract.
PAKAMA, April 24. Foreign Minister
Zavala, of Nicaragua, in a report to Con
I wish to explain to you tbe reasons on
which Costa. Blca based its right to protest
against the canal contract:
First That until the arbitration award
should declare tho 1853 compact to be null and
void it continued binding on both republics.
Second That even it it bad been declared
to hare ceased to be in force it should still re
main on the statutes until tbe boundary line
shall have been definitely determined.
Third That tbe canal contract seriously
wounds the national interests of Nicaragua.
Fourth Tbat the positive right which
springs from tbe treaty of 1858 renders valid
and with a power based on legitimate titles tbe
old boundary line formed by tbe lake, the river
Ban Jnan and the river La Flor. Thus matters
were referred back to their primitive positions.
Tbe Government of Costa Rica, In Its argu
ments, asserted that its rights would be endan
gered by Nicaragua emplojine the waters
which Costa Rica claims the right to navigate,
and with respect to which it advances tbe fonn
dationiess theory that the liberty of transit by
a water route, wb en conceded to any nation,
implies a proprietary right and con
veys a power of dominion. Nicar
agua at once answered that it would pay due re
spect to an arbitrary award. Meanwhile the
arbitration treaty was being carried into effect,
and on March 22 tbe President of tbe United
States made his award, and declared tbe treaty
of April 15, 1858, to be in effect.
After, further explaining this question tbe
Minister concludes by stating that the diffi
culty with the neighboring repnblic had
been most satisfactorily settled by the
arrangement for "further arbitration," and
he alleges in most flattering terms to "the
good and most opportune services of Mr.
Hale, the United States Minister, and the
representatives of Guatemala, Salvador and
Honduras at the Central American Diet."

How a Iilve Newspaper Man Outran a
Cowboy1 on Horseback.
Arkansas City. April 24. One of the
most interesting incidents of the opening of
Oklahoma occurred npon the return to
Arkansas City this afternoon of the train
carrying newspaper correspondents. Seven
of the Chicago and other "Western corre
spondents had pooled their issues and en
gaged a cowboy to meet them on horseback
just after the train entered the yards at
Arkansas City and to gallop furiously to
the telegraph offices. Mr. James Cox, of
the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, was shut out
of the combination.
The plan worked beautifully until the
cowboy had galloped half a block on his
way to the telegraph office. Then Mr. Cox
saw the scheme, and leaping from the mov
ing train he started on foot after the horse
man. It was a run of more than a mile to
the telegraph office. By a spurt Mr. Cox
overtook the horse, and then a desperate
race began. The cowboy lashed his horse
vigorously, bnt be conld not shake off the
On the last eighth of a mile Mr. Cox
spurted like a sprinter, and by a terrific ef
fort reached the telegraph office 40 rods
ahead. When he entered the telegraph
office he conld hardly stand or see. His ex
ploit was the talk of the town to-night. Th
cowboy has not since been seen.
