GENITAL SrORlISG XEffS OF TOE DAT
There is likely to be some grave trouble
about the possession of Outfielder Genins
if everybody interested in the transfer of
that young man from Indianapolis to Pitts
burg is determined to live up to declara
tions. President Young, of the Xational
League, has ordered Genins to report to the
Pittsburg club, and J. X Brush and Presi
dent Williams, of the Western League, are
preventing him from doing so. The latest
is to the effect that if Genins is not allowed
to come to Pittsburg the Western League
will lose all protection irom the big League.
This makes the situation a serious one
for the Western League, and it is safe to
say that the magnates of that organization
will part with many players like Genins
rather than have themselves cast adrift by
the major monopoly.
Ham Keen a T.tttlo Too Gay.
President Williams and his colleagues,
aided by .T. T. Urush have been running
thing- with a hich hand lately, but this call
down may tame them a little. It is certain
that if the Pittsburg club and President
Young hold their ground Genins will come
lierc. Some authorities who know Genins
state that he is not worth fighting for, but if
he has been legally secured by this club he
ouch! to come hi-re by all means. "Von der
Ahe -igned him for the St. Louis club, and
lie lias never been released by that club.
Thi b-ing so, Vou der Ahe had a perfect
rizht to transfer him to Pittsburg.
Patsy Donovan, the new right fielder,
arrived in the city yesterday and will play
in to-day's game between the local team
mid the Cinciunatis. Donovan comes here
tre!l recommended and he certainly has
been nuttinc up a fine came lately- He
has been hitting the ball hard and often. A
Western paper has the lollowing little
incident to relate about Donovan:
A Storv About Patsy Donovan.
Patsv Dcnavan is called 'The Rolling
P'onc" liecause he has gathered moss in
l!o-ton, Brooklyn, Louisville and Washing
ton within two years. Patsy is credited
with being a good churchman, and someone
has told this story on him: Recently when
the Senators arrived in a AYcstern town on
Sunday Donavan was in a great hurry to get
drcsseii and out of the hotel. "What's
your hurry, Pat-v?" he was asked by one
of the boys. "I don't want to be late for
anas,"" he replied. "Why, what's the
odd-?" was the irreverent response. "That's
all right," said Patsv. "for yon, but not
lor me. If I miss mass on a Sunday it's a
sure tiling I'll not make another base hit
this icason." Patsy fortunately reached
church in time.
The Cincinnati Eeds will be here to-dav
and will play two cames. It is needless to
pay that thev are playing great ball, and if
inr sluggers are in good form quite a good.
;rame may be expected. The Ucds have
improved considerably since they were here
la-L The home players are back from
Louisville and are tolcrablv well satisfied
-with their trip. Smith or Terry will pitch
lor the home team to-day andnrobably Mul
lace for the lleds.
roor Crowds nt Louisville.
During a conversation last evening Man
ager Backenbemer said: "The boys did all
rizht at Louisville, but It is an awfully bad
city for attendance. Yesterdav we hadn't
500 people at the game, and this means that
visiting teams are losers there. Mr. Burns
is highly pleased with Ehret's showing.
I!ed really pitched a fine game, and six of
the hits made oft' his delivery were of the
trratchiest kind. Ehret is all right now
and he means to do his level best to win
games. Terry also pitched well, although
lie was somewhat wild. But our fellows
couldn't hit Ssnndcrs, and that lost us the
game. Baldwin is also in good form again
end I think be will get a winning streak
now. Beckley and Farrell look as if they
aie going to commence and hit the ball
cjain, and. If they do, we are all right
Jtfiller, of course, is hitting like a demon."

Harvard's Big Lett-Handed Pitcher
Shuts Yale Out Without a Kun
AND RECEIVES A GREAT OVATION.
Carter, tho Tale Catcher, Meets With a
KEYSTONES WIN A FINE CONTEST
SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO TnE DtSPATCH.1
Cambridge, June 2a "When big, good
natured Jack Highlands stalked across the
diamond at the close of to-day's great con
test between the representatives of Harvard
and Yale he -was cheered by thousands who
had watched with admiratiou his strategic
handling of the ball, and when they saw
him stop and kiss a matronly looking wo
man, whose eyes were moist with tears of
gladness, the crowd cheered again. It has
been a great triumph for Harvard's wonder
ful pitcher, and he received enough flatter
ing applause to turn the head of any man
with less -common sense., Yet he bore his
honors modestly, and by his graceful saluta
tion of his admiring mother be established
himself even more firmly in the esteem of
his fellow students.
Big Highlands Won tb Game.
The great victory over Yale 6 to 0 was
due more to the wonderful pitching of
Highlands than to any other agency. True
he was given perfect support by Mason,
whose work behind the bat was of the high
est order. Such support naturally gave the
pitcher confidence and he shot the ball
across the plate with all the speed which
his mighty left arm could command. Mason
was obliged to brace himself to meet evory
ball that came, but to his credit it must be
said that none got by him. "With such a
battery turned against them, what wonder
is it that the Yale men broke and fled.
Their batsmen were mowed down like grass.
Fifteen of them lacerated the air in vain at
tempt to find the ball, but so swift was its
flight that it was safely lodged in Mason's
big glove before the bat began its sweep.
For six innings the Yale men retired dis
comfited in one, two, three order, except in
one instance, when Bliss got his base on
balls and reached thitd on a steal and an ex
cusable muff of a thrown ball by Hovey.
A Long Hit That Didn't Count.
In the seventh inning, after two men had
struck out, Case lined the ball to right field
for three bases, but as Bliss struck out im
mediately afterward, the hit was of no
avail. That was the only thing that looked
like a safe hit on the Yale side ot the play.
The mere lact that only three Yale men saw
first base during the entire game emphasizes
their helplessness. In the filth inning Bliss
reached hrst on a somewhat excusable
fumble by Dickinson, but he had hardly
had time to hitch his trousers when he was
caught napping by the wily Highlands and
run down between the bases Little wonder
was it, therefore, that Highlands received
the lion's share of the praise and all the
other players surrendered their less promi
nent claims in favor of the big pitcher with
out any bitterness or jealousy.
Such a reception as Harvard gave the
Yale ball tossers to-day might be considered
a serious casus belli in diplomatic circles.
They Bad Been on the tints.
For a year there has been strained rela
tions between the two colleges, as every
Harvard and Yale man knows full well, on
account of some misunderstanding in ar
ranging for the games last season between
Harvard-Yale and Princeton, and as a re-
'sult no games were played between Har
vard and Yale or Harvard and Princeton
The encounter was not entirely bloodless,
either.for in the last half of the second inning
Catcher Carter, of the Yale nine, received
a serious injury in a collision, the result of
which cannot be defiuitely foretold. In slid
ing to the plate Hallowell's head struck
him full in the face, and he dropped
stunned.' In the last half of the next in
ning, the third. Carter took his place be
hind the bat being loudly cheered for his
pluck. When back again on the bench the
crowd noticed that he began to set strangely,
and when two doctors went to his assistance
they knew that be was more seriously in
jured than was at first supposed. His nose
had been fractured by the collision, and one
or both of the nasal arteries had been rup
tured. In halt an "four it was thought best
to remove him fiom the field. He became
violent when be reached the carriage which
was to carry him to the hotel. To-night he
was resting more quietly. The score:

Toronto team, Hanlon and O'Connor, still
hold the title. This event had attracted
thousands ot people Irom Canada and the
United States, and Americans had strong
hopes that Hosmor and Gaudaur would win
the championship, for Hosmer pulled a live

grow very threatening at noon, nnd at tho
hour appointed for the raco tho bay was too
rough for a row boat. Referee Dan J. Gala
naiigh. of Philadelphia, postponed the race
tor ono hour, and at 0:54 tnc scullers were
called into line. The water as still rough,
but the ciowd was impatient nnd it was
deemed best to send the scullers olf.
Tho men were in the finest condition.

scullers shot out at aSS-stroko and Hosmor

first quarter tho scullers were about even,

Hosmer and Gandaur shot up and got into

The people on the steamer grew terribly
excited and oiosed in on the scullers, almost
swamping them. The scene was exciting,
the Americans calling "PulI.George," mean
ing Hotmer, and the Canadians and English
men calling, "Save the chumplonship.O'Con

tho scullers sitting in water with a choppy
sea, fought lor supremacy. The din of whis

everything. Hanlon and O'Conner crossed
the line in 19:35 and Hosmer and Gaudaur
were within two it-et of abreast. Many of

GHOULS FOILED ST A QIEL.
She Heard Them Plotting to Steal
Mnrk Ilopklns-Searlea' Body.
Lawrence, Mass., June 23. Sparta!.
The police are investigating the story of
Louisa Haley, a 14-year-old girl, who says
that recently while she was walking near
the tomb of Mrs. Mark Hopkins-Searles,
and while behind a wall she saw two men
and heard them plotting to steal the body.
Before she could get away she was seen by
the men, who shot at her, ono of the bullets
cutting her skin.
The girl said that a few days afterward
she met the same men in a lonely locality
in Broad street, and was forcibly" taken by
them in a carriage to the banks of the Merri
mac river, where they told her she had cost
them a fortune. They cut offher long hair
aud beat her and as one of the men wanted
to drowii her, they took her in their arms
and waded into the water with her. The
girl said she fainted and when she recovered

WAGES DUE TO DEAD KEN.
Their Families Said to Bo In Want Because
the Money Has Not Been Pal'.'.
Newport, Ky., June 23.r-.Spa:Ja?.
There is a good deal of ugly gossip here
over the a lleged failure of the Baird
Brothers to iake any steps toward paying
the wages dne the unfortunate men who
went down in the wreck. of the Licking
bridge disaster. Mr. Isadore Baer, of 524
Thornton street, who lost two relatives in
the calamity, says that one of the victims is
still at his house slowly recovering from his
hurts, and that-the man has no clothing and
no money with which to purchase any.
That fatal Wednesday was pay day, and
the information is that several weeks'' wages
were due the men. It is quite probable
that the contractors have bad so much on
their minch that their attention has been
diffracted from this matter of back pay due
the sufferers or their families. It is said
that more than one family is in the bitterest
want because of the lack of this money.

the divine to announce his faith in another
hereafter he replied that he did not believe
in any. There will be no further, efforts
made in that direction, as Harvey seems ex
Only one request has been made by the
condemned man. This he did "Wednesday
afternoon in a communication to the Deputy
"Warden requesting that the Deputy Sheriff
of Montgomery county be allowed to wit

Preparations for the final event have been
all completed. Deputy "Warden Playford
says that the law governing executions will

The condemned man will not be furnished
a suit from the Stale shop as is usually the
custom. He will co to the scaffold in a suit

The brother ot the condemned man this

as he gave no reasons for asking this his
request was refused by Governor McKin

The crime for which he will die is the
murder of his mistress at a roadbouse near
the Soldiers' Home, Dayton, last Novem

a revolver, she dying in a few minutes.
Jealously was the cause. Harvey late this
afternoon claimed that he wa3 married to

Kittanxino, Pa, June 23. Special
Thomas Montgomery, a rich farmer of
Manor township, this county, just above
Ford City, was flim-flammed out ofS6,500yes
terday by two men with whom he was unac
quainted. It was a game played with two
boxes alike in appearance. Montgomery
has considerable money at a bank in this
place, having recently sold his large farm
for $23,000. Being compelled to move from
his farm soon, he -was desirous of purchas
ing another. It appears tthat yesterday
morning two men met him on a farm near
here, owned bv a man named Wallace, of
Pittsburg, and offered it to him for $6,000.
After considerable discussion the terms
were agreed to. The proposition was
made that in order to bind both parties, the
purchaser deposit $6,500 in a tin box and
the two men put in $1,000 to show good
The box was locked and given to
Montgomery, they keeping the key.
While on his way home Montgomery be
came suspicious and determined to explore
the box. In Squire Kelson's presence it
was opened and two small sticks occupied
the space where the money was supposed to
have been placed. Warrants were immed
iately sworn out and officers placed on the
track. The livery man from whom they
hired the rig, is also after them. Mr. Mont
gomery is unable to explain how one box
was exchanged for the other and acknowl
edged that he lost 6,500.

That Shock Several People.
Connellsville Pa., June 23. Spe
cial This city was visited by a very
heavy thunder storm to-day accompanied
by the heaviest rainfall of the season. The
gutters were utterly inadequate to carry off
the surplus water, and the streets were
turned into creeks. The electric display
was simply grand. One bolt after the
other fell, and several people in different
parts of the town were severely shocked.
The moit serions case reported was that
of Mrs. Mary McMullen. She had been
down town and was returning to her home,
on Sheridan street, when the storm over
took her. On her war home a blinding
flash of lightning threw her to the sround.
She was able to crawl to a neighbor's house
for shelter, but when there was utterly un
able to spealc, and later became uncon

from the shock.

A Bureau of Pnbllc Safety Proposed for
the Oil City District.

bureau would be expected to include in

of bridges, banks, tanks, fire limits, etc It
is altogether probable that this idea will be
