GEXEEAL BASiBALL KEWS OF TEE DAT
There was an exciting tie game between
lbe Giants and the home players. The
weather was bad and the game was called
at the end of the sixth inning. Boston won
and gained on the champions. Chicago
von and stepped up to third place.
Had the championship season not been
eo near a termination and had the struggle
for the pennant not been so excitingly close
it is safe to say that there would hare been
o ball game at Pittsburg yesterday. Tne
weather was miserable and not more than
400 people were present despite the fact that
the Giants were here. A drizzling rain
fell during the entire afternoon because
when it was considered fair weather there was
more water falling than there does in an ordin
ary Scotch mist. However, w hen the came cot
started the uncertainty of the weather added
to the exciting features of the contest as
nobody knew when Umpire Lynch would call a
halt to the proceedings,
Umpire Lynch was somewhat opposed to
starting the game, but other influences pre
vailed, and after he had displayed his skill in
shoveling mud and Sunday had wheeled two or
three freicht carloads of sawdust on the
diamond, the muddy and wet contest com
menced. "Play ball" was announced 20 min
utes later than the proper time and still a
DBIZZLIXG EAIN "WAS TALLIXG.
After a half inninc had been played "time"
was called, and then the little crowd became so
impatient that after about ten minutes' interval
the game was resumed an finally "game" was
called at the end of the sixth inning.
Considering the miserable weather the con
test was an excellent one. and from start to
finish everybody who saw it was on pins and
needles. The Giants were, undoubtedly, given
to understand that they need not expect to
enjoy strawberry pic here, and that if they
want the pennant they will have to pnt up the
Tory best article in the wa) of playing that they
possess. If anj thing, they were outplayed yes
terday, and it is not unreasonable to say fortune
Was to some extent on their side.
Both Kccfe and Galvin seemed well at homo
with a wet ball. The old sport, however, had
considerably the best of Sir Timothy, although
the latter did good work. The champions
could not find the old man's measure to any ex
tent. He was in great form, while Keefe, at
times, was rapped very hard. The diamond
was in a very muddy condition but it did not
seem to interfere with the fielding very much.
Gore did good work in center field and so did
Fields and Hanlon. Had the hitting been
heavy, however, it is likely that numerous mis
takes would have been made.
TIIEY STARTED LATE.
It was after 4 o'clock when Carroll went to
oat in the first inning. Keefe Boon struck the
lrigman out, and Ruwe was retired at first.
The rain was then falling briskly, and time
was called. After an interval of about ten
nvnutes play was resumed, and big Jake Beck
ley Sent a corking single into right field. Then
Keefe hit White with a pitched ball, and it
looked as if the home fellonsweie going to do
Tiusiness. Fields, however, popped un a little
fly which Whitney caught The visitors were
soon retired in their half, the groat feature
beinca bril'iant double play by White and
Beckley. The former, who was playing close
in for Ward, caught a terrific liner from
"Ward's bat and threw Tiernan out at first
In the third inning, after Galvm and Carroll
were out Rone raised local hopes high by
knocking out a two-bagger to left Had the
ground been level it would have only been a
single, bnt the ball bounded nekt past both
Gore and O'Rourke. Beckley again loomed up
and banged another tw -bagger past O'Rourke,
sendingliowe comfortably home amid cheers.
"White knocked a corker out to Gore, but the
latter was on deck and nabbed it
After the visitors had done nothing in their
lalf they were strongly inclined to have the
came called. Rain was still falling and the at
mosphere was so cloudy that it was difficult to
see the ball. Galvin was pitching in great
"form, and not a hit had been made off his de
lherj; indeed, there only had been nine men at
bat in the three innings. The game pro
ceeded, however, and the home talent did
nothing in their half of the fourth.
THE GIANTS' KETEXGE.
Not so with the Giants from the East As if
for revenge they lighted on to oldJeemstoan
effective extent and this turned all notions re
garding the state of the weather. Gore led off
for the visitors, and knocked out a foul fly to
White. Tiernan then sized up Galvin for a
good single to center field, and then Ward flew
out to Fields, the latter making a beautiful
running catch. Richardson, however, was des
tined for something different and he thumped
out a fine single to left Big Roger next got
Bis base on balls, and the bases were full with
two men out According to the notions of the
home team admirer it was now raining much
too hard to play. Still O'Rourke appeared and
he banged out a single to right that sent both
Tiernan and Richardson home. And Buck
wing took a hand in the slaughter, for he
next took up the bat and knocked out a single
to center, sending Connor home.
Now there were strong appeals to call the
came, but Mr. Lynch turned a deaf ear to all
entreaties. His advice had been spurned at
the beginning, and he meant to stay though
the heavens came down.
LTKCH HAD HIS WAT.
He hrxl his way, but the rain was coming
down fast The fifth inning was played with
blanks on both sides and Ewing made an earn-
appeal to have the game called then. With
we of the hand, Mr. Lynch dispensed with
k and the game went on. It was another
'ng inning, as at one time matters looked
adeed, for the pennant aspirants. White
and got his base on balls. Fields made a
j two-bagger to center, sending White to
.nird. Hanlon followed with a hot grounder to
"Whitney, which had to be recorded as a single,
scoring White. Fields got no further than
second. Sunday came to bat and it looked as if
the Giants would be passed in the score. Billy,
however, struck out and Dunlap loomed up.
He sent oat a hot single to Tiernan's territory.
Tiernan fumbled the ball long enough to allow
Fields to scoro and Hanlon got to third. Galvin
struck ont and CarroILnent out from Whitney
to Connor. The Giants went out without ever
looking like scoring. It was now really too
dark and too wet to play, and the game was

The defeat of Reclare by Gregory was a great
surprise, bnt the latter's form has never been
shown until this race. It has all along been

O'REILLY KAILS A FAKE.
The Brewery Option Don't Explro Before
December 1 Over 860,000,000 Invested
by the Ennllsb Trust.
No word has yet been recived from En
gland in the now famous English syndicate
deals in this city. Mr. J. J. O'Beilly was
seen at his residence on Main street last
night by a .Dispatch reporter, and was
found rather opposed to talking.
"There is no nse," he said, "contradicting
all the wild rumors which are afloat about
the syndicate and its operations. These ru
mors will not hurt the deal; it will go on in
spite of i Jf j. It is not true that the time
for the optiens will expire on Tuesday, as
December 1 is the day fixed for that event.
I do not know where some of the papers get
that positive information which they are so
fond of publishing. The brewers have not
given it to them, and I am sure they hare
not gotten it from me.
"At present we are very much in the
dark as to what may be the outcome of the
deal. A cablegram may arrive any mo
ment stating that the papers in. the case
have been approved, and that the expert ac
countants are on their way to this country,
and again the experts themselves may drop
in upon us at any moment without previous
"The information published by The
Dispatch has been very accurate. The
list of breweries which have been sold, pub
lished in your paper, was correct, but
it was not complete. The total value
of all the plants now owned by the
syndicate, as I told you before, goes above
$60,000,000, and might even approach closely
to the 5100,000,000 mark.
''Some of the reports spread broadcast are
absolutely ridiculous. Why on the very
day that the capitalist was venting his pro
found knowledge of onr operations by deny
ing the existence of the syndicate, one of
the leading English members of that body
was in the city. I conversed with him, and
we both hadahearty laugh over the matter."

Cheney, of the Garfield National Bank of
New York, will preside. The business to
be attended to relates entirely to steam nav
igation, and has to do almost wholly with
matters of legislation. The National" Board
watches zealously all congressional action
affecting navigation on the ocean, the lakes
and the rivers. In years past its labors
have been prolific in seenringthe enactment
of laws favorable to navigation. It has

The death of Captain "W. R. Jones has
caused the local Committee on Entertain
ment to modify its plan for the excursion on
the steamer Mayflower to-morrow afternoon.
It had been decided to visit and go through
the Edgar Thomson Steel Works at Brad
dock, but that has been relinquished. The
course of the excursion has not yet been de
termined. It is possible that the banquet
may be given on the Mayflower instead of
at the hotel.
Mr. Andrew Carnegie and his wife will
be at the Monongahela House to-morrow,
and some of the river men rather think that
he will he present at some of their sessions.

What Preachers Talked About at Yester
Eev. Dr. D. F. McGill, of the Sixth U.
P. Church, Allegheny, yesterday addressed
the United Presbyterian Ministerial Asso
ciation on "What Mode of Preaching Can
be Adopted Better Adapted Than Our Pres
ent One to Make Christians Doers of the
Word and Not Hearers Only?" Dr. Mc
Gill's specific is that preachers must be
"doers" and be specific and not rambling in
their discourses. Dr. W. J. Beid said ser
mons must be graphic, for no matter how
logical they fail ot effect if not made lively
and sprightly. The question ior discussion
at next meeting will De "Should There be
Reform of Funeral Service," Kev. Harsha,
of the Fifth U. P. Church, leading in the
discussion. Expense, mode of conducting,
etc., will be considered.
At the Baptist Ministerial Conference,
Bev. E. D. Hammond, of the Shady Avenue
Baptist Church, talked on "Difficulties
Connected with the Observance of the
Christian Sabbath." He advocated making
Sunday a pleasant one for children, one
that they will long for. At the next meet
ing Eev. S. Lafayette, of Allegheny, and
D. E. Richards, of Sharpsburg, will give
sketches of sermons.
Prof. H. G. McClelland, D. D., of the
Western Theological Seminary, addressed
the Presbyterian Ministerial Association on
"Some Impressions of British Preachers."
The next meeting will be held on Quiz Day.
Dr. I. N. Hays, of Allegheny, is Quiz Mas
ter. The advisability of changing the con
fession; how to keep the choir from talking
during the sermon, and how to treat a man
who admits that he ought to join the church,
but gives no evidence of conversion, are
qnestions to be considered.
At tho meeting of Methodist Episcopal
ministers, Rev. George Holmes read a paper
on "Will Carleton, the Poet"
Stranded In Colnmbus.
G. Brown, wile of a groceryman
Penn avenue, belonged to the
Dramatic Company, which is

Mrs. Brantwood, of Allegheny City, and
Miss Annie Staley, of this city, also be
longed to the combination. It is said Miss
Stalev's mother will go after Trelegan
Good News for Johnstown.
L B. Kremer, of Carlisle, disbursing

said last night that the next distribntion,
amounting to 51,600,000, will be mader by

The people of Johnstown are not more
anxious, he said, to secure the money than
he was to get rid of it.

THE SEMPLE STORE SOLD.
Allegheny' Great Dry Goods Establishment
The great dry goods store of Allegheny,
which was founded by the lata William
Semple, was closed yesterday. William
Semple, Jr., acting for the Semple estate,
sold the entire stock to Mr. S. Davidson,
the treasurer of the Mercantile Purchasing
Agency ol New York city. This action
was the wish of William Semple. The
price received is said to be very satisfactory
to Mrs. Semple and her family. The build
ing has been rented to a number of lessees.
Six months ago 200 clerks were employed in
the six-story building. The action of yes
terday having been contemplated since Mr.
Semple's. death, the clerks were notified to
seek employment elsewhere. Only 40 re
main, and they are experienced men and
women, who will have no difficulty in se
curing good situations.
William Semple began the dry goods
business in Federal street 35 years ago. The
present structure was built in 1871. The
store was, perhaps, the most widely known
dry goods honss in Western Pennsylvania.
