ISTZCIAL TXLXQBAX TO THE DISPATCH.!
New York, Slay 17. Hustling Horace
Phillips and his ball team from the city of
gas came to "town to-day. The team is in
a bad tray. The New Yorks are badlv off
for pitchers, but they are far better fixed
than the Pittsburgh The friends of the
club need not be surprised at the poor show
ing which it has made, for it is remarkable
that they hare not done worse. The six
pitchers which the club started out with are
simply useless to them on account
of lame arms and other injuries. So
badly pushed was Manager Phillips
for a pitcher for to-day's game that lie had
a Pittsburg amateur signed and sent on so
that he could have someone that could at
. least be called a pitcher. This young
pitcher did not do so bad outside of his
wildness. Kis base on balls, however, came
with base hits by the New Yorks. The
backing which he received was very fine,
and at times it was sharp and not uninter
esting. Three double plays in the earlier
part of the game by the -visitors showed that
the New Yorks had to step lively when an at
tempt was made to sacrifice in order to move
a runner up a base. The visitors hit the ball
well, but with the exception of the latter part
of the game, they could not get their hits
THE GEOTJND "WAS EOTJGK.
The roughness of the ground gave the New
Yorks two more hits than they otherwise would
hare got. as both balls bounded over Dunlap's
head just as he was in position to get the ball.
Richardson nearly lost a finger in the eighth
inning in trying to stop a hot grounder.
Keefe and Ewing were down nn the cards as
the New York's battery, bnt it was fonnd that
Swing's effort in pitching on Thursday bad
given him a lame back, so that Brown was
forced to go in and do the work behind the bat.
Keefe tried to pitch, but be could hold for
bnt one inning. The first Dall that he
pitched showed that his "arm was not In -condition,
and with every succeeding effort he
showed that his arm pained him. Hatfield re
lieved him after the inning was over, and al
though he was bit for nine hits there was never
any donbt about the New Yorks winning. Lit
tle Miller was as lively as a cricket, and he
needed to be to stop some of the pitched balls
byKrnmm. Some or his stops were very fine,
and called forth applause. Umpire
LYNCH "WAS SOMEWHAT OFF
in his decisions, but as both sides caught it
alike it did not make so much difference. A
new pitcher is always a terrorto the New York
club, and they were a little uneasy to-day until
they sawthe "idd" from the Smoky City. Gore
appeared at the head of the batting list again;
his arm is very bad and It was fortunate that
he did not have much to do in the way of
throwing. The first ball pitched by the visiting
pitcher must have made him think that he had
got himself into trouble, for Gore slammed the
ball into center field for a base. Tiernan
hit a sharp grounder toward Dunlap which was
turned into a base hit, a stone causing the ball
to bound over the second baseman's head. The
hair on Krumm's bead fairly stood on end
when Connor's big form loomed up at the plate.
The first ball that came near the plate Connor
sent over the right field fence about 20 feet
Xoul. Then our first baseman amused himself
by trving to see bow near he could come to the
top of the right field fence and not go over.
The f nn ended, however, by his getting to first
on oaus. crown also got nrst on tolls ana
Gore walked home. Ward made a successful
sacrifice and Tieman scored. Ahitrjy O'Rourke
to left field scored both Connor and Brown.
Then the New Yorks stopped scoring for a time,
so as to let the visitors have a chance.
TIM KEEFE WAS CHEEKED.
"When Keefe stepped into the box there was
a round of applause. He sent the first ball in
a graceful manner toward Sunday and there
was a collision like the rap of a bedslat against
a sugar barrel and the ball dropped safe into
right field. Hanlon got to first on balls, and
after a double steal both men scoied on a hit
bvMaul. Goose eggs were then presented On
either side until the fourth Inning when the
visitors jumped their score up a couple of
runs, one or two hits, as many misplays
and a sacrifice hit. Beckley opened the
inning with a bit, and Maul hit likewise; a
wild pitch moved them both up a base, and a
fumble bv Whitney and a sacrifice by Miller
brought them borne. The visiting pitcher con
tinued wild, bnt his wildness did not prove
cof tlv on account of the sharp work by Miller
and the good steady play by the fielders. In
the seventh inning, however, his wildness was
more disastrous; two bases on balls, three
steals, three hits and an error by Smith rolled
up fire runs. A two-bagger down the left foul
line bv Smith and a single by Sunday In this
same inning gave the visitors a run.
Both sides wound up with runs. Abase on
balls by Hatfield, a steal assisted by a wild
throw of Miller, a wild pitch and a hit by Rich
ardson gave the New Yorks their last run. For
the visitors, hits by Kuebne and Smith, a steal
by the latter and a bit by Sunday netted two
runs. There were about LGOO spectators pres

LOCAL BALL GOSSIP.
Krumm's Good Showing Benm May Sign
. Here To-Dcy.
Alexander Beam, the youngLatrobe pitcher,
has not been signed by the local club yet, but
it is expected that be will sign to-day or Mon
day. He is willing to sign with the Plttsburgs
if he can get his father's consent. Mr. Beam,
Sr., is away from home at present, but may
President Nimick and Secretary Scandrett
were at Latrobe yesterday, but made no suc
cess other than stated ab-.ve. Tbey feel cer
tain, however, that Beam -ill play here. The
patrons of the Latrobe club object strongly to
his leaving there, as they think with Beam they
can win the pennant of the Western Pennsyl
vania League, andthev also think that, if he
leaves, the club wilf become demoralized.
Beam is only 19 years old, and a well-built
During a conversation yesterday President
Nimick said that every possible effort
will be made to secure good new pitchers.
He has been told of Kennedy, of Wbeeline,
and an effort may be made to secure him. Ken
nedy was recommended in this paper a few
days ago. There may be a desire to try a few.
local pitchers, now that Krumm did so well
yesterday. He was beaten, of coarse, but con
sidering it was his maiden effort in tne League
and against the champions, he did very well.
He was working in a Southside mill on Thurs
day. Another story regarding White andRowe
has been given to the world. It is stated that
they intend to come here and each demand one
month's salary, and if it is refused they will re
turn to Buffalo and play there. Probably these
two players are capable of doing some very
foolish things, but it is hardly likely tbey are
so stupid as to do what the above report in
timates. IT TOOK. TEN INNINGS.

Philadelphia, May 17. It took ten innings
to decide to-day's Philadelphia-Indianapolis

President Davidson Talks About His Team
rsrXCIAL TXLEOBAK TO TBS SISFATCH.I
Louisville, May 17. Mr. Davidson, of the
Louisville Baseball Club, said this afternoon
that no sale bad yet been made and he thinks
negotiations are off for the present at least.
T found several parties who were raider dis
posed to take hold, bnt they wanted the club
for nothing and I have reached the conclusion
that I might as well lose money one way as
another so I will hold on for a while at least. I
will make a change or two that I think will put
the club in pretty good shape. Some people
are of the opinion we need a new battery, but I
don't think so. Under the existing rules the
mam feature ot pitching is control of the ball
and for this plenty of practice Is required. Ew
Ing's work of yesterday shows that pitchers can
have too much rest. Ewing had not been in
the box since Saturday, yet he pitched yester
day about his worst game of the season. He
was particularly off in his command of the ball.
With two good alternating batteries and a re
serve one, such as is the equipment of tbeLouis
viUe club, I think the battery question "is
"I have about made np my mind to let Kerins
go and Ramsey may also be disposed of, buthls
case is not so near a decision as Kerins. Ram
sey's arm, I think, is just as good as it ever was.
His main fault is his inability to control the
ball. If he can overcome this wildness ho will
NewYorts ' S S S f S
be as good as ever, otherwise-he is worthless as
a pitcher and a ball player."

A GOOD GAME PROMISED.
The East End Athletics and Braddocks Meet
There promises to bo an interesting game of
ball at East Liberty Park this afternoon, and
the lovers of the national pastime who cannot
satisfy their appetite for that great game,
while the Plttsburgs are away from home,
should take advantage of the opportunity and
go out and see bow the amateurs do the thing
up. It is a well-known fact in baseball circles
that the stronger clubs in the Allegheny
County League put up nearly as good a game
as the average professional club, and the
players go at the game with so much dash and
vim that thev Tally cover any little shortcom
ings in regard to th eir ability to cope with their
There alwavs ha been the greatest rivalry
between the East End and Braddock In regard
to their ball clubs, ana this year the manage
ment of both clubs have made considerable ef
fort to strengthen their respective teams. The
Athletics have not lost a game this season,
while the Braddocks have only lost one, and
that was to McKeesport when they were in a
crippled condition and did not hare a regular
battery. Since then, howevor, Manager Bair
has secured an excellent battery in Gordon and
Killen, and he promises to make it interesting
for Manager Edwards' pets this afternoon.
The Atblctjcs, however, are on the alert, and
are aware of the streneth of their rivals for
championship honors, and will no doubt put
forth their best efforts before, they will permit
their unbroken record ot this season to be
marred by one defeat. The following is the

A Crnel Operation.
It maybe interesting, in view of the present
crusade against the docking of horses' talis, to
know what th e process Is. Its features are thus
described in an exchange: "A rope is thrown
over the neck of the horse, the end brought be
tween his fore legs and under his hind pasterns.
A sudden jerk draws up his legs, he falls help
less to the floor, and his legs are tied. He is
then secured with twitches, which is twisting a
small rope around the nose, which is very sen
sitive, so as to divert his attention from the
tall. Behind is a furnace, knives, a large pair
of shears and a searing iron. The operator
folds back the hair from the joint to be divided:
the knife rapidly severs the skin, the huge
shears are applied, the horse struggles and the
tall Is off. Then the iron at a white heat is ap
plied, and the bleeding is arrested. The cheers
of the audience and the subduing Influence of
the twitch drown the cry of pain, that is never
brought from the horse except when in great
agony; for this noble animal is one of the few
who endure ordinary pain without a whimper.''

The Fifteenth ward schoolhouse was well
filled with enterprising citizens of that dis
trict last night. The object was to consider
te gratuitous offer 'irotn Major McKce of
a spring of water in the Fifteenth ward, on
the United States Arsenal property. The
only thing necessary is the Building of a
fountain and the laying of pipe to carry the
refreshing liquid to Thirty-ninth and But
ler streets, in front of the arsenal.
At the meeting Dr. T. E. Evans presided
and James W. Patton was Secretary. The
project, from the interest shown last night,
is bound to go through, and the Fifteenth
warders are suspiciously afraid that the
Seventeenth warders are aiming to secure
the right of the water; therefore the move

the disagrcable things we warrant ours
NOT TO DO.
