THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, THURSDAY.
NOT IN THE FIGHT,
Pittsburg Never Had a Chance
to Win Yesterdav.
ERROBS WERE NUMEROUS.
Sowders Was Seasonably Effective,
but Fortune Was Adverse.
iV J5KW YUHh. STILL IN THE LEAD.
Y?o More Sunday Ball Playing to be Allowed
THE EESCLTS OF ALL OP THE GASIJJS
Pittsburg was beaten yesterday and by
that fact and the victory of Indjanapolis,
is once more in seventh place. 3Sew York
defeated Cleveland and, therefore, is still
' ahead of Boston. The Giants piny here to
day. "Without exception, some of the players
belonging to the Pittsburg club have kinder
hearts and more regard for their fellow
players than is often louud ainong the ordi
nary run of humanity.
On Tuesday last one J. Galvin, Esq.,
made a great and unequaled record for him
self. During the past two months the record
of the aforesaid Mr. Galvin had been
slightly bedimmed, and the luster that sur
rounded his name was growing cloudy. On
Tuesday he emerged from the cloud with a
bright, sparkling brilliancy that cast its reful
gent splendor on all sides and nearly blinded
t'.icne who came within the light that shone
forth. He was the king of all bis fellow play
ers. That one time easy mark. Gentleman John
Clarkson, with the New Castle, Lawrence
county Bennett, did duty in tbe points for the
.visitors. Although hit more frequently than
Bowders, Clarkson managed to keep them
scattered. His support was good, while on the
other hand Sowders was rather wild, five bases
on balls and a wild pitch being part of his
SOME OF THE CAUSES.
Then again bis support was rather rank.
Even Beckley, who generally gathers in every
thing that comes in the vicinity of tbe initial
bag, making some bad breaks. Tbe audience
was a kindly one, numbering abont 1,000 people,
and was disposed, alter the great game of tbe
previous day, to ch-eer anything that came.
Their enthusiasm -ras all extracted at an early
stage in tbe game, however, and did not have a
cbance to bubble forth at any other timo dur
ing tbe afternoon. Mr. Curry, who is hired to
give decisions bxhind the plate, was very off
color, and had ho seen some things as otber
1eople saw tbera, tbe score might not have
een as one-sldeil as it was.
In the first Inning Beckley made two bad er
rors that gave a man first and then a moment
later advanced bim to third, but fortunately be
got no furtbejr. In tbe second innlnc, alter
Johnston was retired at first by Kuebne.
Brown got a s'.ngle of a very scratchy order to
right and then stole second. Smith's sacrifice
out at first advanced Brown to third. Bennett
got a base on balls and stole second. Clarkson
singled to ceater and brought botb Brown and
Bennett ovev the plate.
A BAD FUMBLE.
Richardson singled to center and Carroll
fumbled tli. ball so long that Richardson got
to second and Clarkson scored. Kelly got a
base on balls, and Nash closed tbe inning by a
foul to Ml Her.
In tbe tbird inning Bronthers let drive a long
fly into deep center field that was fair and
hquare for Carroll's bands. The big fielder,
howevei;, made a rank muff of it, and the ball
rolled a way behind him. Before the sphere
was returned to tbe Infield Broutlicrs was rest
ing on third base, and a moment later a wild
pitch allowed bim to cross tbe plate.
In tbe sixth Inning Brown got a base on balls
and then committed larceny on the sscondbag,
scorin g on Smith's double to right. The latter
scored on Bennett's single to left center.
Clark son's double to left brought Bennett
liomi. Richardson's single to right advanced
Clarkson to second. Dunlap's error let Clark
son get to third and tbe latter scored on Kellj's
fly -u Maul.
The visitors got their last run in the seventh.
After Johnston flew out to Rowe. Brown got a
base on balls and scored on "Pop" Smith's
three bagger to right center.
riTTSBUBG'S ONLY BUNS
were made in the seventh inning. Dnnlap
opened with a single to center. He was ad
vanced a base by another single to center by
Sowders. Both men were moved on a base by
Miller's out at first. They both scored on a
daisy tbree-bagger to right that Carroll knocked
-jut. Then Howe died at first, and Beck-ley's
sincle to left brought Carroll home with the
final run. Maul's fly to Johnson retiring tbe

tween the Pittsburg and Boston clubs was

MOBBING THE UMPIRE.
The Cleveland Crowd Find Fnult With the
Work of Powers.
CurvzLAND.'Angust 11 There was an ex
citing scene at the ball grounds this afternoon,
McAleer, for the Clevelands, in tbe fourth in
nlng, drove a ball to left field. He ran like a
deer and reached second base in plenty of time.
Powers, the umpire, also ran to second, and
seeing McAleer safe on the base returned to
the home plate. There he was Informed by
Buck" Ewing that McAleer had failed to
touch first base, and he promptly called the
runner out. The pavilion- was crowded and
oearlyjTery man in it arose at once. "Ride
him on a rail," cried several, and a dozen
Jumped into tbe field and started in $he direc
tion of Powers. Tnree policemen with drawn
clu bs and all the members of the Cleveland
ba'J team hastened forward, and by sharp talk
anit some force drove the indignant spectators
back. The field,m tho meantime was
andSOO men were vellinc their opin
"umpire in chorus, and a hundred of them were
shaking their fists and brandishing their canes
For ten minutes it seemed that a riot was
certain, bnt Powers finally called the game and
retired to a room under the grand stand. When
he was out of sight the anger of tbe pavilion
spectators cooled down, and on his return In a
quarter of an hour he was merely assailed with
words. Tbe pavilion is directly opposite first
bane, and those occupying seats in it saw the
play that indirectly caused tbe row. McAleer
was the first man at tbe bat, and the score was
2 to 3 in favor of the KewYorks. It was tbe
fourth inning, and as it was sprinkling and the
sky was black with clouds it looked as if the
game would be called at tbe end of tbe next

Baltimore Has No Tronble In Getting a
Game From Louisville.
Louisville, August 14 Baltimore had the
game won from the start to-day. They bunched
hits on Ewing in spite of the good work on his
part, and were helped out whenever it seemed
necessary by Louisville's errors. Cunning
ham pitched well, scattering tbe ten hits
made off bim. and was handsomely supported
throughout. Goldsmith had a policeman put
a man out for hooting. Tbe officer by mistake
took a prominent citizen who bad not offend
ed, and a row was threatened. When the mis
take was rectified order was easily restored.

A Missing Man Pound in Bis Barn Alive,

telegram to tqx DisrATCH.l
Obange, Mass., August 14 Charles
Atwood, of Brualz Hill, has been found
alive, but a raving maniac, in his own
barn, while the police and neighbors hare
been scouring the country for days in search
of him, but the finding of Atwood only
partially solves the mystery, that is con
nected with his disappearance. His condi
tion, and the absence of his watch and
money prove conclusively that he was sav
agely attacked in the woods by highway-
inen, and this is still further proven by his
exclamation: "You ain't the man that hit
me," when his rescuer picked him up. There
are no outward marks of violence save a few
scratches, but his mind has been shattered
by his experiences. In his ravings he calls
out, "Take that sponge away."
The police think Atwood was attacked by
tramps, chloroformed and robbed. His
clothing was torn as if in a rough scrim
mage, and the presence of blood in the high
way can be accounted for only in that way.
If blood was spilled it must have come from
one of the robbers, for Atwood's injuries
were not of such a character as to occasign
much bloodshed. The townsfolk are now
hunting the woods for the robbers.

rSFICIAL TELSOBAK TO TBE DISFATCIT.1
Rochesteb'N. Y,, August 14. When
the second day of the Grand Circuit meet
ing was ended the programme to date was
entirely cleared, so that five events were de
cided this afternoon. Last night it rained
considerable, and this morning it was dark
and cloudy. The sun came out about 1
o'clock, and it was warm and pleasant when
the hour fixed for calling the trotters arrived.
Later in the day it grew cloudy- again, a
shower fell, and after tbat it was cold enough
for October. Still there was no delay, and heat
after heat was got off promptly by President
Archer, who found much smoother sailing in
his position as starting judge than he had yes
terday. Only one race bad been finished up to
last evening, and the biggest prize of the week
was still in doubt as to Its disposition. r
HOFINO AGAINST HOPE.
Of the heat winners Star Lily and Sprague
Golddust had the advantage in tbe summary,
but there was a lingering hope tbat the fast
gelding Veritas might prove a winner after all.
The black gelding Ketch, who was handi
capped by a bad driver yesterday, bad a new
and more skillful pilot In John Turner, and
there was no telling what figure he might cut
in the contest. Star Lily, however, proved tbe
best of the horses left in the struggle, and a
single heat settled the troubled question.
Sprague Golddust was able to dispute tbe mat
ter stoutly, and the pair had a race to them
selves. Both grew leg weary in the last part of the
mile and it was largely owing to Goldsmith's
resolution and will tbat the llttlo mare held the
lead. He rallied her with rein, voice and whip,
and by a last supreme effort she reached the
goal in time to capture tbe $5,000 which awaited
tne winner 01 tnree neais.
Star Lily has already attracted notice by her
success at Buffalo last week when she defeated
Reference. She Inherits tbe blood of Rysdyk's
Hambletonian and Seelv's American Star, tbe
cross which produced Dexter and other fast
ana gone trotters. Her present owner, A. J.

tbe conclnsion of their struggle for place hon

The former could scarcely stagger to the
paddock. Knott puffed and panted like a dog
In dog days trembling violently, and was limber
as a dishrag, but most distressed of all was
Samuel Bryant. He seemed too broken-hearted
to appreciate the sympathy of his friends.
"Knott ought to have'won, Mr. Bryant,'- said
a man who had backed him. "He was the best
horse in tho race."
"Well, we're beat, we're beat, my friend."
moaned the owner of tbe pride of Kentucky.
"We're beat. It can't be helped now."
"Don't you think Murohy waited too long?"
'Didn't wait at alL tft'rshnt mv frinud.
and I've no excuse to make, but we'll bit 'em
again, we'll hit 'em again."
There was not a mark of whip or spur on
Proctor Knott's heaving sides. -He did all he
conld do without punishment. Eleven months
ago in tbe Futurity, Proctor Knott, in a des
perate uuisn wua eaivator, bear him by a

beat bim by a head. Longstreet, the winner,
was comparatively fresh at the finish, of tbe
