mThe Pittsburg ball club beat theCleTC

each made a home run. Boston and New
York played a tie came. Chicago and
Philadelphia each won an interesting con
test tFriCIAI. TTLEOBAM TO THE DlEPXTCn.l
CLEVELAKt), August 20. It was a lucky
thing for Pittsburg that to-day's game
didn't commence where it ended. If it had,
the Clevelands would hare won. It did
not, however, and the game went to the
Pittsburg boys, and deservedly. Morris
exercised all his cunning and during six in
nings the babies failed to hit the ball past
the infield. In the seventh a little batting
was indulged in, but it was not until the
cichth that they succeeded in placing the
sphere where there were no fielders. Han
Ion's men, on the contrarr.began early.earn
ing two runs in the opening inning. Bakely
was at his best after the third, and had he
pitched as good ball in the first part of the
game, the result might have been different.
Howe's awful throw to Beckley was the
only piece of inaccurate fielding. The ball
went high above the first baseman's bead and
into the stand, permitting Tebeau to score.
JIcKean, Strieker. Dnnlap and Kuenne played
brilliant ball in tbe field.
BEGAX THE FUN.
Pittsbnrc began the rnn getting In tbe first.
BecLley came near retiring tbe side on strikes;
be tben hit a wicked gronnder which caromed
off Balcel' shin to a point between short and
third. Fields was pathetically appealed to by
Hanlon to make a hit and he compiled readily,
sending a home run to right, scoring' two earned
runs. In the third about the same thing oc
curred. Carroll was sent to the bench on a fly
when Rowe took up bis ash and singled to cen
ter and Beckley batted ont a terrific homo run
drive to right sending in Rowe before him.
Tbe visitors had men on bases in the second,
fourth, fifth and sixth by reason of Bakely's
generosity, but succeeding batsmen could not
bring them in. The Clevelands bad no chances
to score until the fifth when Tebeau crossed the
plate with an earned run. AIcKean had gone
to the bench from first on Rowe's assist. Te
beau batted a swift grounder to Rowe which
the short stop juggled and then
THREW OVEE BECKI-EY'S HEAD
into the pavilion. Tebeau continued in his
chase around the bases, and crossed the plate
before the ball was fielded back to Morris. Zim
mcr rot his base in tbe sixth, but was fielded
ont at second when Bakely bit to Rowe, per
mitting the visitors to execute a double. In tbe
eighth Tebeau. who cenerally manages to
break the spell which keeps the babies from
hitting the ball, led oft with a double to right.
He went to third on Gilks' ont from Rowe to
Beckley. McAleer and Zimmer filed ont to
Sunday and Hanlon. It was in the ninth that
the Pittsliurcs came near letting tbe game slip
from tbelr crasp, and it was the fault of Mor
ris who had up to this point been tbe central
figure in the came. Bakely. who seldom hits
safe, was sent to first on Balls, and Radford
joined the pitcher on tbe bases In tbe same sort
of a present. Strieker tried to sacrifice, but
only succeeded in fouling out to CarrolL Jlc
Kcan batted a grounder to Beckley, coing out
at first, but Bakely and Radford advanced a
base on tbe play. Twitchell singled to short,
sending In two runs. Tebean's siccle advanced
Twitcbell to third. McAleer fiied out to Rowe,
ending tbe game. Score:

rSFZCIAL, TELXOKAM TO THE DISPATCH. J
Washington, Augustl9. President Young
to-day received a long letter from Umpire Phil
Powers, explalng in detail the circumstances
of the recent row at Cleveland during the last
New York series. He states positively that
McAleer did not como within a foot of touching
the base, and be quotes Charlie Snyder and
other members of the Cleveland team to prove
that his decision was 'just and proper. Mr.
Young has also received letters from other per
sons in Cleveland who were present durinc the
disputed game, and they uphold Umpire Pow
er's decision. Up to the present time no pro
tests have been filed against the continuance of
Mr. Powers as a member of the League staff,
and Mr. Young states that Powers will proba
bly be umpiring in the League for several
years to ccjme, unless some unforeseen accident
C. D. White, secretary of the International
League, to-day telegraphed President Young
asking him If he would recommend "Old Relia
ble" PhiL Baker as an umpire. Mr. Young
promptly replied tha the regards Baker as a first
class umpire, competent to fill tbe position in
any league dissociation. This probably means
PhU'rappointmeut on the International staff.

Beat the Poor Colonels Columbus
Defeats the Reds la a
Louisvtllx, August 19. Louisvillo played
Brooklyn a close game this afternoon and lost
by lack of confidence. Ehret pitched and was
bit very freely, bnt Smith, an amateur catcher,
who was given a trial by LouisvIIles, started
tbe losing. T. Lovett, who went in the box at
first for Brooklyns in the third inning, was
batted all over the ground, giving Loulsvilles a
big lead. Caruthers replaced Lovett in the
fourth, and in the fifth Brooklyn began pullinc
ont and continued steadily to the end In spite
of a desperate fight by the home teamt Louis
ville's experiment with Smith exchanging with
Weaver in the third, and in the fourth was re
placed there by Stratton, Hecker coming in to
play first base.

HARDING A LITTLE TIMID.
One of Kilraln'a Backers Visits Friends In
IFPECIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCTLl
Toronto, Anprnst 19. W. E. Hardinc, of thp
New York Police Qazette, who was Richard
K. Fox's representative as backer of Jake KII
rain in the recent prize fight atRIchburg, was
in the city to-day. and went out to Bridge this
morning. He spent this afternoon with Ed
"Billy Harding is a Canadian, you know,"
said the oarsman to-day, "and his people llvo
at Bridge, near this city. He has gone up to
see them, and will return to Toronto in a day
The reason for which Harding has chosen to
skip lightly from under tbe shadow of the
American eagle's wing and revisit tbe home ot
his boyhood. Is that the American eagle is com
ing down with fell swoops on the gentlemen
who were close to the ropes in tbe Sullivan
Kllrain fight. He will tarry on this side of the
border till the clouds roll by.
His Backer Covens Teemer's Forfeit for a
John A. St. John last evening sent the fol
lowing dispatch to the writer:
"Have written and sent draft to cover Teem
As anticipated ,in yesterday's issue of this
paper Mr. St John still clings implicitly to
Uaudaur and certainly is prepared to put up
the money for him to row John Teemer. The
draft and letter will arrive to-day and doubtless
St John is. in behalf of Qaudaur, prepared to
accept the eeneral conditions of Teemer's
challenge. It is hardly to be expected that all
of Teemer's demands as offers will be Indorsed
offhand, and therefore we may expect St John
to request something in behalf of his cham
pion. However, it is satisfactory to know that
amid all the monotony of the local sporting
world, there is a prospect of a boat race be
tween snch rowers as Gaudaur and Teemer.
If St John does not to-day forward a copy of
articles Teemer will at once draw up articles
and forward them to Gaudaur's backer.

A TASCOTT THEORY.
Captain Plnkerton Positive That at Least
Two Men Were Concerned In the Suell
Mnrder He Thinks the Fugitive
Will Sometime be Caught.
ISrZCIAI. TXXXOnAM TO TUB S1SFATCII.1
San Keancisco, August 19. Captain
William A. Pinkerton, who is at the head
of the Pinkerton Detective Agency at Chi
cago, is at the Palace Hotel. Captain
Pinkerton gave new and startling informa
tion in regard to the Tascott case which has
neVer appeared Jn print "Yon will notice,"
he said, "that t e $50,000 reward offered
by Mrs. Snell, the widow of the murdered
man, is to be given for the arrest
and detention of young Tascott, not for his
conviction. If caught, it is the desire of
the authorities to obtain from him a con
fession. "The fact has never been published that
Tascott had one or more accomplices; that
these men murdered Snell. Tascott was not
an experienced thief. While in 'Kentucky
he was arrested for stealing railroad tickets.
This was his first crime. He served a' year
in the State prison at Frankfort, Ky. My
theory is that while there he formed the ac
quaintance of several desperate men. When
he had served his time he returned to
Chicago. He lived with his parents in that
aristocratic neighborhood where Snell re
sided. He was hunted up, doubtless, by
several of his prison companions who had
secured their liberty, and used as a decoy,
he being familiar with the homes ot rich
men in the vicinity.
"Another fact not generally known is that
old man Snell received two bullets, one
a 38-caIiber and the other a 44-caliber,
which shows that they were fired from two
revolvers, .and from right angles. It is not
very probable that Tascott had a revolver in
each hand. One of the chambers in Snell's
revolver was found to be empty, and no
trace of a bullet was ever found. Tascott
was not injured, and this shows that one of
his companions received Snell's ballet
"Mr idea would have been to have traced
the whole case from the Frankfort Peniten
tiary. This theory, I think, has not been
followed out I believe Tascott is alive and
is in some large city in this country. He
would be perfectly safe in New York or
San Francisco; could live in security for a
hundred years by merely attending" to his
business and not frequenting public resorts,
where he would be liable to meot the police
men or detectives. I think he will be cap
tured sooner or later."
NEW FEATURE OF THE TERRI KILLING
An Effort Being; Made to Drag It Into Demo
rcrZCUX, TILIOItAM TO THE DISPATCn.l
Sak FEA2JCISCO, August 19. An effort
is being made by certain political interests
in this State, tp make political capital out
of the fatal result of the unfortunate meet
ing of Justice Field and Dave Terry in
Lathrop. It is true that Terry represented
a fastion of the Democratic party now
dominant in this State, which has for a
number of years post been hostile to another
faction of which Justice Field is popularly
conceived to be the head. But while there
are two factions of the Democrats here, and
while Justice Field is undoubtedly in sym
pathy with one of them and Terry was as
'trulv a representative of the other, it is
easily demonstrable that politics had noth
ing to do, near or remote, with the affair at
The fatal enmity of Terry to the Justice
grew ont of the latter's judicial act in a side
issue of Sarah Althea Hill's divorce pro
ceedings against ex-Senator Sharon. The
Terry faction, now eager to ward off some of
the odium of the assault upon Justice Field,
and to put the Justice on the defensive, are
industriously reviving the. -history of the
anti-monopoly fight In this State, of ihe
famous special session of the Legislature of
1884, of the Stockton Convention which
followed it, and to show that Justice Field
was an aggressor in the angry party alterca
tions of that period.
