fe'SOlIE GOSSIP ABOUT THE PUGILISTS
The baseball championship season of
18S9 is over, and if ew York has iron one of
the most remarkable and exciting contests
there has ever been for the National League
pennant. It mar be years before such an
other finish is seen, and, doubtless, that just
concluded will be remembered by all base
ball historians. The New Yorks have iron
a noble victory, and won it on its merits.
They deserve all credit In this connection
I may be permitted to modestly remind
readers of The Dispatch that I have
steadfastly plumped for the Hew Yorks
since tbe season opened. Even when they
were away down the list, and when it
needed nerve to predict the Giants' final
success, I stood them to win. There are
qualities abont second-time pennant win
ners that make them extremely formidable.
Boston at one time had a long
lead, but that vim and accomplished
m ork which hare characterized the Giants soon
told its tale. Steadilr but surely they forced
ahead, and hare won what is theirs by merit.
True, Boston has given them a very hot argu
ment, indeed, and for this Clarkson is almost
entirely responsible. He has proren himself
to be a wonderful pitcher, and it is a thousand
pities, as far as he is concerned, that be is not
on the winning side. It may be argued that
the lack of pitchers was a factor In the defeat
of Boston. All that I hare to say in reply to
this is: Could the Bostons hare secured a
pitcher who would hare done better than
Clarkson ever since ho commenced to pitch al
most dailj ? Until this is answered affirmative
ly the excuse in question is worthless. I don't
think that anybody will for a moment attempt
to try to prore that better work than
Clarkson's could hare been done. On
an average Clarkson has done stead
ier work lately than either Keefe
or Welch. However, 1 bare always maintained
during the last two seasons that tbe New
Yorks, as a team, is the best team in tbe coun
try. Once more they have demonstrated that
fact. Another remarkable feature in the race
is tbe close finish between the Clerelands and
Pittsburgs. Tbe former bare finally been com
pelled to play second fiddle to the Pittsburg
delegation, and they haTe cone down in a Tery
desperate struggle, indeed. I don't think there
is a team in the League deserving of more
credit than the Clerelands. From first to last
their work has been remarkable, considering
tbat this is their first season in the League.
Lately when all clubs bare been at their best
the Clerelands hare kept us all guessing, and
the games they have lost by one run tells how
heroically they hare fought. Tbe lead of
Pittsbure over Cleveland at the finish is really
so small that one can hardly muster nerve
enough to blow about it.
The Local Tenm.
K ow that the championship season is Orcr it
may not be out of place to say a few words
about tbe local team. Probably tbere is not a
team in the country that has been more disap
pointing than hare the players of the Pittsburg
aggregation. As has been stated time and
time again, they started tbe season amid the
applause and admiration of almost all tbe base
ball world. According to all authorities their
prospects were as bright as a summer's sun.
However, before they had fairly gotten started
they collapsed, and tbey hare remained so until
now. Tbere must be a cause for this, or else
there is no truth whatever in tbe old argument
of cause and effect. Tbere is a cause, and lam
inclined to think that .Messrs. Rowe and Dun-
lap stated that cause rery forcibly to me some
time ago. Ounlap, during a conversation,
frankly stated that not a man in tbe
team was in condition to start the sea
son. It was weeks before any of the players
got into anything like reasonable shape to play
and some bare never been in fit condition dur
ing tbe season. Now, if anybody should know
about matters of this kind tbat person is Fred
Dunlap, because be was captain when the sea
son opened and remained so for a lone time.
Well, now, if this is or has been tbe cause of so
much disaster and disappointment why can't it
be remedied? Tbere may, of course, have been
other causes, but I am firmly conrinced tnat
tbe one in question has been the primary one.
It is not impossible to remove it before another
championship struggle commences. If ever
Pittsburg is to have the League pennant
money must be spent iii no niggardly way. No
man is prepared in first -class style to win some
big event without extra expense, and the same
rule applies to a baseball team. I look upon
money spent on training players as an mi e&t
snent rather than an item of expense. Tbe les
sons of this season may teach some important
Tbo League's Rival.
Nothing more definite has been said about
tbe alleged Brotherhood scheme during tbe
week, although tbere has been considerable
talk about tbe question. As far as any tan
gible evidence ot any serious intention on tbe
part of the League is concerned we are just
where we were at the beginning. President J.
21. Ward, of tbe Brotherhood, has been in the
city daring the week, and he maintained a
notable silence on tbe subject, beveral of the
business men whose names hare been con
ceded with the alleged gigantic scheme have
denied all connection with it, and so the matter
stands. However, Mr. "Ward, while here, made
one rery important statement, and that was to
tbo effect that if the grievances of which the
players complain are remedied there will be no
attempt on tbe part of the players to wreck the
League. Tuis really ought to be consoling to
those magnates who have so many thousands
invested in tbe business. If tbey will only
travel in a righteous path their salvation is at
band. What more cheering assurance could
they require than that of Johnny Ward?
Surely the magnates ought to be thankful.
However, it seems as if a rery im
portant fact was being lost sight
of. The ruination of tbe League means ruin
ation for tbe players. I am aware tbat some
people will not indorse this opinion, but it is as
true as tbe fact that we live. If the players
wreck the League, they'll kill the goose that
lays tbe golden egg, and, indeed, it is supply
ing golden eggs without stint to the very
Dlayers who are kicking most. Tbe National
League as we know it to-day is tbe result of
enormous cost and labor and remarkable busi
ness ingenuity. It has not sprung up in a night
like Jonah's gonrd. but it has taken years to
buil I and establish it. It is cow a powerful and
influential organization, and, generally speak
ing, managed by some oF the best business
men in America. Will anybody, then,
tell me tbat the plavers or
anybody else can replace it with anvthing that
v ill be of greater service to the players? Will
all of these "wealthy" people who are crying
aloud about tbe slavery of baseball plavers give
tbe cse of their capital for nothing of next to
nothing? To bear tbe various rumors one would
almost imagine tbatdozens of millionaires were
prepared to donate millions of dollars for the
special benefit of tbe poor baseball plavers who
receive no more than $100 or 8200 per week. If
these business men bave the betterment of
workers for wages or salaries at hart, I ren
ture to say that they'll find plenty to keep them
busy if they look at home. In this instance the
old prorerb, "Chanty begins at home,"isyery
There Are Grievances.
. However there are grievances under which
the players labor, and which I think will be
remedied. Tbe loudest complaints seem to be
about tbe classification and reserve rules, and,
doubtless, the League will be prepared to deal
with both, but whether one or both of them
will be modified or abolished is another ques
tion. Headers of these reviews well know that
from the very first day the classification rule
was adopted I hare steadfastly opposed It. Al
most everybody was lauding it to tbe skies be
fore it was anything like currently understood.
It object was all right, and tbe ma
jority of people seemed to see no fur
ther Into it. However. I argued that
the rule was based on principles that could
not operate successfully because they were un
sound and opposed to the common business
principles or everyday life. However,
since last spring almost all a' thonties
bare become conrinced that the rule is not a
ood one. To hare it changed or modified will
e as beneficial to the magnates as to tbe
players. The reserre rule is quite another
matter, bowerer, and I fear that if it is a griev
ance in principle to the players it will still hare
to stay. There is one interesting truism that
has been bequeathed to us by the late Professor
Jerous, viz., that we must deal with human
nature as it is, not as it ought to be. The ques
tion then is: What would baseball organiza
tions be without a reserre rule? In my estima
tion ot it tbey would be like as many
ships in a storm at sea without a
helm. I am aware that considerable
stress has been laid on the fact that
in the theatrical business actors and actresses
are not reserved from year to year. Howerer.
those who use this as an argument should
remember that there is no analogy between
the theatrical and baseball business in this
connection. Theatrical companies do cot con
test against earn other as do ball clubs, and it
entirely is the evenness of the contests that
keeps baseball alive! How would it be, then,
if one or two clubs were allowed to buy ud all
the star players in thecountrv? I fancy a rery
lamentable result. Whatever may be tbe
shortcomings or alleged oppressions of the
principle of the reserve rule I fear it will have
to Stav. or if it does not thnre will be a collanse.
It may be modified, ana probably will be.
There really Is something extraordinary
about base ball in more wajs than one. If
newspaper reports are true the Athletic club
directors, of Philadelphia, bare offered 215,000
for Captain Comiskey, of tbe St. Louis club
that is $15,000 have been offered for his ser
vices. However, Von der Ahe evidently thinks
that Comiskey is indispensable to the existence
of his team, and refuses the offer. The offer of
such a large sum for the services of one player
opens np the question. Is there a bail player in
tbe country worth $15,000? Of course the
utility of a man or article may be greater to
one person than another, but as far as practical
results are concerned, I don't see how either
Comiskey or any other player pos
sesses qualities worth 515,000. But there is
another feature. Does not these enormous
prices Tor players indirectly operate to the dis
advantage of less prominent but often just as
useful players? I think they do. Snppose a
club pays 515,000 for a player. That amount
has to be made up in some way, and most as
suredly one of the ways will be, and has been,
to keep down tbe salaries ot players. I am
mindlul that some will sav tho "star" will at
tract lots of additional receipts. "Wbenaplajer
attracts $15,000 worth and also as much as the
worth of his salary, I'll be convinced.
Among the many things that we may look for
in the immediate future is a very stormy meet
ing of tbe American Association. It seems
that Mr. Wikoffs official days are cumbered,
and that be is in the hands of his Philistines;
indeed, it is rumored that he has made up his
mind to resign tbe Presidency of the Associa
tion. This resolve has undoubtedly been hast
ened by the 'crusher" that Byrne and his
friends received at the recent Association di
rectors' meeting. It has been generally under
stood for some time that Wikoff was only tbe
teflex of Mr. Byrne, and the peremptory
manner in which the former ruled or
decided in tbe late St. Louis-Brooklyn
dispute at Brooklyn brought the tumultous
state ot things in the Association nearer a
climax. Then Wikoff was Byrne's friend, but
now it seems that Mr. Byrne is even prepared
to assist in the Jeposition of his friend, for tbo
Brooklyn President cow says that be has no
objection against Mr. Kranthoff, of Kansas
City, being President. Well, the presidental
contest will be one stormy featnrc of tbe meet
ing, and tbe storm will be aggravated by tbe
101 quarrels and squabbles tbat hare been
going on from time to time among the Asso
ciation magnates. AH this is to be regretted,
ana will only hasten a state of things that may
culminate in the utter destruction of the
Association. Pm sure we would all regret that
One of the interesting events of the week has
been tbe return of William O'Connor, the
sculler, from England. Ho returns, of course,
defeated, but not disgraced by any means. He
rowed a good, honest race, and was, as far as
I'm able to judge, beaten by a better man. Bnt
O'Connor does not think as I do. He is of
opinion that he can defeat Searle. and states
that if the latter will come to America he can
get a race for $5,000 or $10,000 a side. It is pleas
ing to find O'Connor still so confident in his
own superiority, that is, assuming be is speak
ing what be honestly believes to be true. But
it would seem strange if O'Connor returned
and frankly stated tbat he was beaten by a
better rower. When Jimmio Hamil was beaten
by Harry Kelly so easily, Jimmy still ex
pressed the oninion that he was the better man.

Canadian, and even William Elliott ran away
with the idea tbat if be "was in a little better
condition" he could beat Hanlan. Elliott had
this notion, or at least expressed it, even after
Hanlan paddled nearly four miles in front of
him. It is rery rare, indeed, that we meet a
defeated man who has not an excuse which on
tbe face of it seems plausible enough to ac
count for defeat. O'Connor thinks be was
overtrained. When it is considered that Searle
began to overhaul and leave the Toronto man
as soon as he. Searle, got down to his "long
swing," the "orertrained" idea is not a rery
forcible one. O'Connor must indeed have
been fearfully overtrained if orertrainlne
caused him to succumb the lead as early
in tbe race as he did. O'Connor also com
plains about Searle's rough and "uncultured"
style of rowing; but as I understand matters,
Searle's great object, like O'Connor's, is to get
speed and keep it up. Good style or bad style
Searle certainly did this in a most extraordi
nary way; much faster than O'Connor. After
all, that style is best for a man by u hich he can
make most headway. I don't say this to de
preciate good style of rowing, but I say it be
cause one man may bare a style natural to
himself, though it maybe ungainly to tbe eye.
Any other style would not be so useful to him.
It seems to me that tbe extraordinary reacn of
bearle is tbe very thing that makes him so for
midable. That reach outweigbs all of his other
shortcomings. Harry Kelly couldn't possibly
have rowed a race in an ungainly style no more
than Hanlan can, w bile Tom Blackman got
remarkable speed on his boat by a very clumsy
effort. I once knew a rery speedy and promis
ing rower named Finnegan. who could show
extraordinary speed, and erery stroke he
Eulled he seemed in danger of falling out of his
oat. The style that is most natural to a man
is generally the one that is best for him. At
any rate, Searle with his unaccomplished
method is the best rower we know of.
About tbe Pugilists.
It is some time since things were so quiet in
tbe pugilistic .world as tbey have been this
week. There even has not been much talking
done and tbere are indications that pugilism
and boxing are rapidly on the wane in this
country. Nothing definite has been heard
from La Blanche regarding Fogarty's chal
lenge and nobody need be surprised at that.
La Blanche, as I previously pointed out, is
victor now; he is Dempsey's ranquisher and he
states tbat be is in no hnrry to fight again.
A contest for the middleweight championship
may, therefore, not be expected for some
time. But, I often wonder tbat amid all tbo
contests at San Francisco tbere is not one
between Jack McAuliffe and Meyer. Tbere is
an unsettled question of superiority between
these two lightweights. Some time ago,
as we all know, they were very well paid
for showing the public how not to fight.
After the affair tbey had much to say
about their respective abilities but never
entered tbe ring. If tbey would go to San
Francisco I feel certain tbat tbey would get
excellent inducements to flebt for the cham
pionship. They would hare to fight there and
they know it. That may have some effect on
them and their managers. Sullivan is, accord
ing to bis latest statement, busily engaged pre
paring for a tour throughout the country with
an athletic and boxinc combination. Doubtless
John expects to reap big rewards, but be may
be disappointed. It may be that all tbe enthu
siasm and extraordinary interest in pugilism
that was created by tbe late fight for tbe cham
pionship has subsided. Sulliran has done his
best to kill it; so much so tbat the public will
not place much reliance on him. It is also cer
tain tbat boxing will be stopped in many of tbe
principal cities and this will be a blow to bis
show. Howerer, after the tour is erer, whether
it lasts as far as intended or not, we may not tie
surprised if we learn that John 1 is entirely
done with ring contests. In the meantime,
howerer, we will have to look across tbe Atlan
tic for pugilistic contests and I expect tbat be
fore tbe newyearamres there will be a definite
and business-like challenge for Sullivan. It
seems certain that the victor of tbat trio
Smith, Jackson and Slarln will be eager to
tackle anybody, in tbe hope of reaching the
topmost rung of tbe ladder in their business. I
hare strong presentments tbat Jackson will be
tbe man. Ot course, there is nothing definite
yet to leaa one to any conclusions. However,
even If Jackson does defeat Smith in their
glove contest, I don't think that tbe Smith
party will be satisfied with that. Jackson in a
glove fight may be one man, and Jackson in a
it-foot ring on tbe turf may be quite another.
If Jackson should turn out to be the champion
of tbe three big men cow In England, then
Sullivan will hare no scruples in declining to
fight Jackson. Already Snlllran has declared
that be will cot meet a colored man, and an in
teresting controversy will ensue if Jackson
should claim the championship.

NEW I0RK GETS THE PENNANT.
Old Sport Galvin Does Some Great Work

CHICAGO FINISHES IN THIRD PLACE.
Brooklyn is Beaten and tbe St. Louis Browns Win
Yesterday was a great baseball day. The
home team beat Boston and went tip to fifth
place. New York won the pennant and
Chicago finished third. The Association
race is beginning to be exciting.
"Well, it was a good 'an for the last, and
doubtless Boston will remember it Prob
ably there has never been a more excited
crowd in Becreation Park to witness a ball
game as that of yesterday. It was the final
event of the championship season, and on
its result depended some very important
issues. Bnt whatever chance Boston had of
getting the pennant was totally extinguished
by the local delegation of players who faced
them. To use an old phrase, tbe Bostons were
never in the hunt, and their defeat was a real
crusher. It not only settled all of Boston's
pretensions to the championship, but lifted the
home team into fifth place. Results like that
in one day are surely significant enough to be
At any time there is mnch to be prond of in
defeating the Bostons. They are big and
rugged fellows, who invariably commit whole
sale slauehter among those who are less power
ful than themselves.
BEMEMBEBED OLD SORES.
They haTe, during the present season, treated
the home team in a most unmerciful manner,
and doubtless memories of this treatment
spurred the homo representatives to do the
Bostons yesterday or die. Important as tbe
home club's victory was, however, as things
tnrned out, it was not needed to blight tbe Bos
tons' pennant prospects. The New Yorks also
won, and that clinched the affair. That settled
all possibility ot protests about tho alleged il
legal game between New York and Philadel
phia, which tbe former won. The New Yorks
can throw that game out and still hare the
There were between 4,000 and 5,000 people in
the park to see the last contest and enthusiasm,
it is safe to say, tbat fully 20,000 were rep
resented. The weather was warmer than it
has been all week, but huge black clouds hov
ered overhead all afternoon and rain threat
ened strongly during the latter part of the
game; indeed it was so dark that tbere were loud
demands to call the game at the end of tbe
eighth inning. Umpire Powers, however, very
wisely continued tbe contest to its legitimate
SOME GOOD PLAYING.
As far as tbe home players were concerned
the game was a bnlliant one. Tbey nerer
played with more energy, carefulness and abil
ity this season. Thestrongestcine were on tbe
field and they cerer made a mistake. Bowe,
Dunlap and Beckley fielded to perfection and
the outfield couldn't be surpassed. Without
doubt, tbe entire cine were out for tbe stuff.
And Old Sport Oalrin was there as gay and J
chipper as a youth just starting out on bis vaca
tion. Jeems pitched with a vengeance, and the
"Only Kel" was the only Bostonian that could
get near the old man's deliverr. Out of the fire
hits made by tbe entire nine Kelly made three
of them. Jimmy was in form, and no mistake.
The Bostons played a poor game, in fact their
performance seemed to indicate that some of
them were very shaky because of the import
ance of the occasion. "Pop" Smith made two
very bad breaks. Nash, Kelly and Qulnn also
contributed to tbe error column. Ibelr com
bined efforts resulted in placing tbe home play
ers so far ahead that tbe game became one
sided. However, there was always a possibility
of tbe big sluggers from the East letting loose
and knocking tbe covers off several balls. Tbis
kept the crowd on the anxious seat. But the
big bitters did not do any damage and all went
CLABKSOX DID WELL.
Clarkson pitched a splendid game, although
be was wilder than usual. He gave five men
their bases on balls and tbat Is pot customary
with him. He had the sympathy of the crowd
with him because of his recent extraordinarv
work, and he was occasionally cheered. How
erer, it was evident that the crowd was almost
entirely for the New Yorks, for when the New
York-Cleveland score was announced showing
tbe former to be winninz, a loud cheer went up.
The first inning settled tbe game, as tbe home
players made more runs at tbat early stage
than the visitors obtained during tbe entire
game. It was a merry inning for tbe home
team and seemed to inspire everybody with a
certainty of victory.
STARTED TO SCORE.
Carroll led off and got first because of four
bad balls being pitched. Howe then knocked
the ball over tbe second baseman's head and it
dropped right in the midst of Johnston.
Kelly and Quinn. As a result Bowe made two
bases on his hit, Carroll going to third. Beck
ley then knocked a grounder to Quinn, who
threw the runner out at first, but Carroll scored
on the play, Bowe reaching third. Miller came
next and banged tbe ball splendidly into center
field for a base, and Rowe scored. White sus
tained the fun by knocking a grounder to Pop
Smith, who fumbled the ball, and the Deacon
was safe. Miller reaching third. White stole
second and then Fields knocked up a foul fly,
wbicn Bennett caught. Hanlon knocked a
grounder to Smith, and the latter made a wild
throw to first, Hanlon being safe and Miller
scoring on the error. This was jolly, and tbe
yells and shouts can be better imagined than
described. Dunlap, however, ended tbe inn
ing by knocking the ball to Brouthers.
STILL GETTING ETJNS.
The third inning, after White was out. Fields
got his base on balls, and got around to third
on Hanlon's single to right, Dunlap then
went to tbe plate, and a foul tip from bis bat
split Bennett's finger. He retired from the
game, Kelly coming in to catch and Brown
going to right field. Dunlap went out from
Clarkson to Brouthers, ana a muffed throw by
Kelly allowed Fields to score. Oalrin struck
out, retiring tbe side.
In the fifth inning there was more run get
ting, owing to mistakes and hittinir. White
led off and cot his base on balls. Fields then
reached first on a fumble by Nash, but tbe hit
would hare sent White to second bad the field
ing been perfect, Hanlon knocked a fly to
Johnston ana tbe latter caught it in bis usual
brilliant style. Dunlap came next and thumped
the ball to tbe right field fence, sending in
White and Fields. Dunny tried to make third
on tbe bit but was put out. Galvin again re
tired the side, going out at first. That ended the
rnn getting for the home club.
The risitors made their only run in the sixth
inning. Kelly led off with a two-bagger to left
field and sacrifices by Nasb and Brouthers sent
him borne. In tbe next three innings tbe risi
tors went out in order and thus ended tbe last
championship game of the season at Pittsburg.

New York's Victory Plensca the Babies and
Cleveland, 0., October 5. Abont
3,000 people filled a portion of tbe seats
at League Park this afternoon in, spite of the
cold weather to see tbe outcome of the great
Leagtle race. Keefe pitched for New York
and Gruber for Cleveland. Each man did great
work, but the supremacy of tho Giants as hard
hitters won them the game. The New Yorks
began scoring in the first inning. Gore was
given his base on balls and Tiernan followed
with a terrific drive over Badford's head for
four bases, both men scoring. In the fourth
the Giants got another run. Bichardson went
out to Faatz and Connor followed with a single.
O'Bourke hit to Tebeau, and the latter hesi
tated slightly before throwing and then let tbe
ball drive wide to Faatz Whitney nearly
knocked ember's foot off with the ball, but
was thrown out, while Connor scored. Cleye
land scored two in the fifth on Faatz's single,
Sutcliffe's base on balls, amber's sacrifice and
Badford's two-base hit.
New Yorks scored in the sixth on hits by
Richardon and Connor, and O'Konrke sacri
ficed. Cleveland's last run was dne to a
fumble by Bichardson, Faatz'a hit by pitcher
and Sutcliffe's long sacrifice fly.

The New Yorks Make the Corks Fly nl
Cleveland, October 5. The New York
ball players were in an exceedingly happy
frame of mind to-night, and corks were drawn
at tbe Hollenden Hotel in great numbers. Tbe
pennant belongs to them, and persons residing,
aiong me juie xiauroaa win ail know it, too,
before another sunset, for the Giants started
home at midnight in a special car on wbich was
a banner bearing tbe words, "The New Yorks:
Winners of the National League Pennant."
The train bearing them will draw up in New
York City to-morrow afternoon at i o'clock.
Tbis morning the weather was threatening,
and the man at tbe Signal station predicted
rain. Tbo clouds hung low all day, and gave
promise of emptying tbelr contents at any mo
ment. However, no rain fell, acd at 3 o'clock,
when game was called by tbe nmpire, 3,000
spectators were present to see tbe final struggle
of tbe season. Keefe pitched for tbe Champ
ions, and was bit hard, but none of the Cleve
lands were lucky. The New York infield was
like a stone wall, and wbat appeared at first to
be a base hit was easily gathered in and the
runner put out at first base. The Giants did
not make an error untlftbe ninth Inning, when
Dan Bichardson muffed a grounder from
Gilks' bat, and that was tbe only bad play they
made during tbe game. Both clubs did their
best, Tbe game was in doubt until the last
Clevelander was declared out, and "Buck"
Ewing said tbat he was not sure of the pennant
until the contest was over.
The ticore board showed that Boston was
losing at Pittsburg, but tbat only made tbe
Giants play all tbe harder. To-night tbe cham
pions received many telegrams of "congratula
tion. One came lrom tbo Boston club, and
others from enthusiasts in New-York, Chicago
and Pittsburg. A number of actors were also
beard from. Tbe scene at the Hollenden to
night was a rery lively one, and every New
Yorker in town was exceedingly inflated in the
region of the head.
How They Finished.
' The following table shows how the League
clubs stood at tbe finish of the season, and
doubtless it will be studied with exceeding in
terest by all interested in baseball. The records
show how keen and desperate the finish of the
race has been. The first six clubs fougbt for
positions until the last game. Tbe table further
shows how many games tho clubs bare won
