GENERAL SP0ET1XG KEWS OP THE DAI
-Af There is not only considerable pleasure to
' "5be derived, but much information to be
gained from a conversation with the veteran
of baseball, Mr. Harry "WriElit. Few men
1 in the country hare had the amount of
practical experience in the national game
that the genial manager of the Phillies has
1 had, and very few, indeed, are so well in-
l -formed regarding it and its historical and
scientific features. Last evening Mr. Wright
', expressed himself at length to the writer
Cr - on many interesting baseball topics: He said:
j"CeiUinly I anticipate some kind of change
in, the classification rule before next 6eason
i commences, but I don't at all expect that it
will be abolished. There are faults connected
'with it, both as regards high salaries and low
ones. What I mean is that some players are
classed higher than they ought to be, and some
are classed lower than they should be. But we
must remember that the rule as a sjstcm is an
experiment, and experience will help us to get
it Into a thorough going and satisfactory order.
The Idea was suggested by Cleveland a long
time ago, and had it been adopted then we
would have a pood system in operation now.
Ve cannot get along without a system founded
on a principle that will fairly limit salaries. A
system of this kind is just as beneficial to
wealthy clubs as to poor ones.
A VERT POTENT TLEA.
"The more evenly an organization of clubs is
balanced the better it is for alL If tbe poor
clubs are weak everything will be onesided,
and people won't patronize the games. I re
member when the Bostons were carrying ev
erything before them for several seasons that
victory became so monotonous that patrons of
tbe game became tired of it and stayed away.
It was simply a question of how many runs will
Boston finish ahead tolay? The general result
was a foregone conclusion. The principle of
classification helps poor clubs to get as good
players as wealthy clubs.
"I am not sure as to what the American As
sociation will do in the matter. It is waitingto
see how the plan works with us, but I don't
think there is stability enough in the Associa
tion to. formulate any new plans. There
t, , arwsys considerable distrust in
at ' organization, as one club is
variably suoecting another making a move
join the League. This proves that the Asso
ciation members themselves look to the League
as a superior organization. However, there is
iilenty ot room in the country for both, and If
Irooklyn were to take Washington's place in
the Leajruq there is no reason why Washington
should not liecome an Association citv. There
are plenty second-class cities that conld be se-
cured whicti would still keep tbe Association
head ofyin the minor leagues."
A league teams sized up.
Miwright expressed his opinion about the
various League teams. He said : "Cleveland
has. a fini club, and no mistake. Tbe players
arc; all so evenly balanced that they put up an
everyday game of a good order. Certainly it is
a new team, but each player has had expe
rience enough to know his position. The in
field is not made un ot kids by any means, and
tbaoutfield is good. The batteries are also
. eiy strong; and, as I have said, the players are
so equal that they play a very steady game.
Kew Yore is a treat team, but has been both
ered with its pitchers. The Giants are a dan
gerous lot, indeed. But Chicago is getting
into shape, and when it is all right, we must
The manager had heard nothing definite
about the proposed Morrill-Andrews deal, and
did not venture any opinion. It is likely, how
ever, that Pete Wood will not be long w'lth the
Phillies, and Mr. Wright will part with him
very reluctantly, if he is to be relea-ed. Satur
day's came seems to have caused Mr. Wright's
estimation nf Wood to fall a little. The
"Wood is just the Kind of young man that
the rlnb wants. He is a gentleman, and his
sobriety and good moral conduct arc noteworthy
But these qualities don't win games. He was
most highly recommended to us. and we were
given to understand that he would equal any
of our old men. I'm sorry that this prediction
has not come true. When e have tried him
i he has fallen short of expectations to a very

"Deacon" White has returned home and his
signing is just, as likely now as it ever was.
He emphatically holds out for half of his pur
chase money. He cannot get it and he, there
fore, refuses to sign with Pittsburg. While

that he either wanted to play or have his re

ously in thee columns the "Deacon" does not

It is probable that he will now ask his law
vet's advice as to what he sbould do next. The
Deacon, when in this city, intimated that there
was such a thing as making people pay for
conspiring to deprive another man of his

that the laws of the country are opposed to
such like action.

game in this city are mostly, working people,
and they demand of tbe management a change,
to have, a half day's rest and recreation with
out losing their day's work, which is not only a
loss of time but money as well. Tbe team tbus

of tbe three games,

to do something more than talk to get even
with the Scotts. of this city. Last evening Mr.
J. W. Scott, manager of the Scotts, called at
this office and replied' to tbe charges of the Mc
Keesport club against his team. He said:
"I want it distinctly understood that we are
no bluffers, but we mean business everytime.
The reason we did not arrance to go to Mc
Keesport on the Fourth was because they
would uot give us two dates on that day, and
we got two dates atanotherplace. Now, about

lenging them to play us at Recreation Park on

last evening. Tbe big Greek bad blood in his

very emphatic manner:
"I seo that Duncan Ross has my name an

I w ou't wrestle him on Thursday, but I want to

STOPPED THE KNOCK-OUT.
Pnt KMcn Not Allowed to Face SomeBlow
hnrds. DutUTn. Mint., Jnne 30. Pat Killcn gave
an exhibition Inst night to a packed bouse.
Before the r-parring commenced, a message
from the California Athletic Club, of San Fran
cisco, was read, forbidding Killen to engage In
any knock-cut contests. If he did, they will
consider his engagement to flcht McAulilTe as
off. This becoming known, a lot of fighters.
Pat Sbechy, Conley and Paddy McDonald
among them, wanted to stand before Killen.
This, of course, was impossible, and for a time
a general riot seemed inevitable. Manager
Gooding then offered to put up $500 in the
hands of any responsible person that Killen
conld whip any of the gang when his McAuliff e
fight was over.
Another account says Sheeby offered 1500 to
stand up against Killen, but his offer was re
fused, to the disgust of the audience, who
hissed him roundly.
Will Fight tbe Winner.
CrriCAGo, June SO. Peter Jackson, the Aus
tralian pugilist, is here now and is anxious to
make a inatch with tbe winner of the Sullivan
Kilrain fight. He says he can thrash either of
tlicm and would only be too happy to demon
strate his ability to do so. He refrains from
expresing any opinion as to the relative merits
of Sullivan and Kilrain. The colored pugilist
sajs he doesn't think he will be able to cet a
fight out of Sullivan, because of tbe tatter's
expressed determination not to go against a
negro, but hopes to have a go at Kilrain some
time. A Good Race Promised.
The Butchers and Merchants' 2:10 pacing
race, which takes place at Exposition Park on
Thursday afternoon, promises to be an inter

at 12 o'clock r. v. Following are the entries

easily defeated Joe McCarthy, another local
man, in a fight to a finish a few nights ago.

A GAME FIGHT.
Jimmy Lynch Dclcaia Tommy Danforth In
a Desperate Contest.
,-SrXCIAI.TXLXOKAU TO THE DtSrATCH.1
New York. June SO, Tbe fight between the
light weights. Tommy Danforth and, Jimmy
Lynch, which took place on Staten Island early
this morning was the gam est battle that has
taken place in this vicinity between men of
their size since Havelin and Farrel met and
fought 49 rounds. Tbe fight was for a purse of
$250. It was Lynch's first skin glove light, but
he has a good record as an amateur. He is 21
years old, 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighed 121
pounds. Danforth had tbe advantage of ex
perience and age. He is SO yers old, S feet 4
Inches tall and weighed 121 pounds. He is a
veteran in the ring and has met the best at bis
weight. He foucbtlke Weir to a draw. He
fought Tommy Warren, the California Athletic
Club's favorite, twice, each winning a match.
Lynch began the fight a second after time was
called with a right hand swing on Danforth's
cheek. Danforth dodged back and slipped. He
fell on his hands and knees, but was
up in a moment, and planted a hot
one on Lynch's jaw. Lynch smiled and
got in two good ones In return. In the
nineteenth round both showed punishment.
At the close of the round Lynch got In a good
upper cnt on Danforth's damaced eye. Dan
forth returned It with a terrific blow on
Lynch's Jaw bone, knocking it all side
way. When time was called it was
discovered that the blow had broken
Lynch's jaw. Lynch was plucky, and
fought on. The twentieth was hot. Lynch up
per cut Danforth twice, and onco caught him
in the stomach. Danforth was weak, but he
got in several hot ones on Lynch's broken jaw.
When time was called both were blowing
hard. The twenty-first was hotter still. Finally,
in the twenty-second, Danforth got in a right
hand upper-cut on Lynch's jaw, and he went
down on his bands and knees. It was partly
due to the slippery floor and partly to the force
ot the blow. Ashe was getting up, Danforth
deliberately struck him three hard blows.
There were wild howls of "Foul I foull" from
Lynch's friends. Lynch got up in a moment
and went to his corner.
Referee Donohue allowed the claim of foul
and awarded the fight to Lynch. Danforth
staggered across tbe rinz and the fighters
grasped each other's hands as cordially as
though nothing had happened. They still
smiled. Lynch with difficulty, for be couldn't
close his mouth. Ho went around thouch and
took up a collection for the man he had
whipped. Old sporting men present declared
that they had never seen such a plucky fight,
and they predicted that Lynch would be a
world-beater with a little more experience in

rSnCIAL TELEGRAM TO TIIE DISFATCO.1
New York. Juno 30. The first of the
men Irom this part of the country who are
going down -to Louisiana to see the Sulli-van-Kilrain
fight left, to-night on the 8:15
train on the "West Shore road. They will
reach Bochester early to-morrow morning,
and wait there until Sullivan arrives from
Belfast. That may be to-morrow afternoon
or evening, cr perhaps Tuesday. There
will be a special train then made up at
Bochester to take the party South. The
most important part of the special will be the
baggage car in which Sullivan will be kept
under training by Muldoon until the journey
is over. . .
The men who left New York to-night are all
believers in Sullivan. There were James Far
rell, Joe Coburn, JlmWakely, Charley John
son, Phil Lynch, Leonard Tracey, John Bohan
on.V. V. Molloy, Jack Cusack. Tom Farrel,
Dan Murphy, of Boston; Jim Fowler,
Tom McJIannes, Sid Bent, of Boston; T.
A. Bingham. Frank Moran, of Bridgeport, and
Barney Maguire. When they arrived at the
ferry at the foot of West Forty-second street
they found a horde of small boys from the
tenements of that region who were delighted to
see friends of Sullivan. The small boys looked
at tbe sportinc men in awe for a moment, and
then, as they hurried into the ferry house, the
CHEERED FOE JOHN Ij.
It seemed as it all the other passengers over
at the Weehawken station who were going out
on the 805 train knew that the Sullivan party
was to be aboard, and they took great interest
in the group of sporting gentlemen.
Sullivan stock was high all over town to-day,
for tbere was a general growth of the idea
that Muldoon had got the big tighter into first
rate shape. Some men are prophesying, bow
ever, thatthe change of climate will hurt Sul
livan more than Kilrain. for the difference be
tween the clear air of Belfast and the air of
New Orleans will be greater than the differ
ence between Baltimore and New Orleans.
Aspecial from New Orleans says: New Or
leans Is wildly excited over the coming Kilrain
Snlllvan figbt, and It Is tho only subject of dis
cussion here. Frank Stevenson, who is now
backing Kilrain, and who was until recently an
ardent supporter of Sullivan, explains
why he deserted tbe champion. "I bet
on him," he said, "until after the Mitchell
fiasco. I was certain that Sullivan would win,
as I know that be worked hard for It. and that
he did not drink a drop in England. Snllivan's
special qualifications are for a fight un
der the Marquis of Queensberry rules.
HeJs the greatest Marquis of Queensberry
tighter the world has ever seen. No man
living can beat him in a four-round glove fight.
But in battles to a finish, where generalship
and staying powers are needed, Sullivan is not
near as great as Kilrain. I have watched Kil
rain, and see that be is tbe
GREATEST OP KINO TACTICIANS.
"He does not keep his head still, to be hit at,
like Sullivan does. He has a terrifio right and
a wonderful left, and is as skillful in getting
away from punishment as in diving it. He
fights as carefully as skillful players play
euchre, keeping count of his points and
making each punch count a point. After
his fight with Smith his abilities became
known, and since then his reputation has been
steadily going. What fits him especially for a
ring fighter is his wonderful endurance. In
his figbt with Smith he did not even wet his
lips during the hour he was in the ring."
J. W. Barnett, who left John u Sullivan
Wednesday evening, at bis training quarters in
Belfast, N. Y., in an interview said: 'Sullivan
never looked better, I knew him when he
fought Ryan, and I tell you frankly he is in
better shape at present than ever in his
life. As far as I can see there Is not a bit ot
superfluous flesh on him. and the story that he

A lumber pile made of boards each 100
feet long and 6 feet in width would be an
unprecedented sight in the ast,butagentle
man recently returned from a visit to the
coast of the North Pacific ocean says that
piles of lumber such as that are common at
the mills on Fuget Sound. ''Boards 100
feet long and 6 feet wide, without a knot
in th em," he said, "are common cuts from
the gigantic fir trees of the Puget Sonnd
forests. These trees grow to the enormous
height -of 250 feet, and the forests are so
vast that, although the saw mills have been
ripping 600,000,000 feet of lumber out ot
them every year for ten years the spaces
made by these tremendous inroads seem no
more than garden patches.

Thursday evening two men passed through
Wichita on their way to the west, stopping off

their time inquiring for one J. W. Harwood,
whom they seemed to expect to find at one of

just before arriving in Arkansas City one of
them plunged a knife into his throat and
cut a gash from ear to ear. He was
taken to an uptown hotel, and In the
meantime tbe second man uisappeared
entirely. Tbe man who attempted suicide
first said that his name was Thompsonand that
he as ex-postmaster of West Chicago. This
morning, while in a state of delirium, the man
talked continually ot Cronin's murder and fre
quently mentioned the names of Burke, Wood
ruff and Norton. He seemed to be well
acquainted with the incidents of the Cronin
mystery, and about noon, during a lucid mo

with him when ho attempted suicide, though
he denied all knowledge of the Cronin affair.
The authorities here and in Arkansas City
believe him to be Cooney, the "Fox." He was
asked this afternoon if he knew Burke and

them both. His wounds are deep,, and al

advantage of the sunshine and went to the

Over half a century ago Joseph Conkling
and Maria Tuttle were neighbors and lov

smooth with them. It was the old story oi
the penniless suitor cruelly frowned upon
and turned away by 'the maiden's
well-to-do and inexorable parents. The
disappointed lovers went their respective
ways and fonnd other consorts, from whom,
in the course of time, they were parted by
death. Tbus bereaved, and after many
years of separation, the old time lovers met
again by chance, and the happy sequel is
told in the announcement of their nuptials
