IFPECTAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. I
Cincinnati, August 4. The joy of the
cranks of Porkopolis is double distilled just
now.for not only
have the Keds'
bitterest foes de
parted leaving a
lock of Mark
for sweet re niem
but an new idol
has been dis
the first time this
XJr V- year Pittsburg
JlriA was compelled to
bow before Com
iskey's men on
Ohio soil. At
no stage of the game were these arch ene
mies of Cincinnati dangerous. The lead
that was taken at the beginning was in
creased as the innings rolled on and when
the last man was victimized the crowd of
1,109 faithful burst into a cheer ior the new
pitcher winded at the depot by Captain
Comiskey when the team was fleeing from
Boston. Mike Sullivan and Jerry Harring
ton made a battery of giants and they
worked together as nicely as if they had
been paired all their lives.
Ble Sullivan Was a 1'nzzle.
For five straight innings not a hit had
been rnaOe ofl the new man, and the only
Pittsburgers who had reached bases, two in
number, had been forced out by succeeding
batsmen. The stands had enthused over
one magnificent catch of Holliday's. Beck
ley was the sufferer, and he sent a scorcher
hustling through the air toward the bulletin
board. The "Bug" turned and ran, and as
it was passing over his head he leaped up
ward and dragged it down. He had massa
cred a sure home run.
Sullivan opened up with lots of speed,
and really good command. On no less than
lour occasions was he in the hole with three
balls and no strikes, and he kept putting
them over until he landed his men. As the
game grew older he slackened up his pace,
but of the eight hits charged against him,
two were bunts to third and two more pop
flies that dropped safe into short lelt field.
Baldwin Started in Wild Fashion.
Baldwin hit McPhee as a starter and
"Welch never budged when an inshoot struck
him. Latham bunted safely. Beckley
killed a hit for O'-Neil but McPhee scored,
and alter "Welch had been caught at home
on Holliday's infield tap Latham tallied on
Miller's bad throw to spoil Holliday's steal.
Sullivan's grounder got away lrotn Bier
bauer in the fourth and Le" scored with
"Welch on the latter's great push over
Smith's head. Genins hit was duplicated
by Harrington in the sixth, and Jerry tried
to reach second but was caught. Shugart
spared McPhee and Genins scored. Welch
drove McPhee in by the triple, scoring on a
Kelly's single, Donovan's force of Bald
win, who had been sent down on balls, and
Smith's double yielded Pittsburg's first
run. There was a batting symposium in
the eighth. Sullivan's single, McPhee's
home run. "Welch's burning with another
inshoot, Latham's single and doubles by
O'Keil and Holliday gave the Keds five.
Miller and Donovan hit safe and Smith
got a base on balls. Sullivan fired in a wild
pitch, missing Harrington's return and two
runs scored. Beckley sent Smith home bv
a triple into OVNeil's territory after Tip
niaue a great catch of Shugart's line fly.

The Dispatch Nine Won.
The Dispatch nine took a game from the
Press nine yesterday at Wilkinsburg, the
first they have wonslncetliey received their
uniforms. Both sides put up a fair game,
though the fielding was rather jazged at
times. There were several fine hits made,
among them J. Jessop's drive over the right
field fence, which unkind fate only made a
two-bauger; Enscoo's three-base hit to the
left field fence; WilliamV two-bagger, and
Lennox, who got two fine doubles, alone
scoring four of the. runs made. The
good grounds enabled the fielders to cnt off
several promising drives. Score:

race against time, but Klrsoh's race of this
afternoon may be cnronlcled as the existing
mile record. Many of the spectators left
the track very much in donbt as to the cor
rectness of the time, but a strong wind was
blowinc down the track, and it greatly as
sisted the rauers in the flight of speed.
Wnen Kingston was added to the list of
starters for the Eatontown stakes, Demnth
and Tournament were withdrawn ln Kings
ton's favor. With 1 to 6 against him, the

Wet Weather Deals Badly With the Buffalo
Grand Circuit itaces.
Bufpalo, Aug. 4. Special The Grand
Circuit races for to-day have been postponed
until to-morrow on account of the bad con
dition of the tiack caused by a heavy rain
early this morning. Eleven events are still
unfinished, including three stakes, and these
are to come first, as they must be competed
for after the 221 trot, four heats of which
were decided yesterday. The $5,000 stake for
227 trotters is on, and then comos that for
2:23 trotters, with the 2:23 pacing stake
after. The delay will be a serious loss all
around, as many of the horses here will not
have a chance to fill their engagements.
After Nellie K trotted the second heat of
the 2:19 class in 2:21 yesterday, John .
Madden bought her lor a reported price of
$2,500. She is to go ln at Rochester and

To-morrow afternoon at 4 o'clock thesis-
mile road race of the Keystone Bicycle Club
will take place, providing the weather is at

have been training actively lately, and the
result will likely be astonishing to those
who have favorites pioked out for winners.
Some of them have taken occasion to go
over the course and have become familiar
with the road over which the race is to be
run, and it would not be surprising if the
riders would finish ln a bunch or any rate
very close together. There will be 14 riders,
whose names were published in The Dis

have been extended to all wheelmen to wit

be a great race.

rSFECIAL TELEGRAM to THE DISPATCH.1
Harrisburg, Aug. 4. The excellent
condition of the State Treasury'not only
justifies the payment this year of the appro
priation of 5,000,000 to the school districts
of Pennsylvania, but after this great obliga
tion shall have been met the. public ex
chequer will have at least 55,000,000 to its
Of the amount appropriated to the com
mon school system,' $3,835,331 10 have been
forwarded to 1.780 of the 2,338 districts in
the State and the remainder will get their
pro rata share as soon after the receipt of
the necessary reports at the Department of
Public Instruction as the proper warrants
can be prepared.
For the year ended the first Monday in
June, Philadelphia has received her full
allotment, amounting to 81,071,790 70, ex
clusive of ?3,000 to which the Franklin In
stitute is entitled, and ?3,006 allowed for
the expenses of teachers' institutes.
The appropriation to each school district
is based on the number ot taxables iu it.
For each taxable ?3 45J are distributed.
For the years ended on the first Monday in
June, 1890 and 1891, 52,000 annually were
appropriated, and each taxable represented
51 33 3-10. The two preceding years the
school appropriation was $L500,COO each, and
from 1S7J to 137, $17,000,000 annually.
The Department of Public Instruction to
day forwarded to Philadelphia $571,790 70,
the balance due that city for the year ended
in June. Next to Philadelphia, Allegheny
county is entitled to the largest sharo of the
appropriation made by the State. Pitts
burg's, allotment is $192.938 63, and Alle
gheny's $85,259 04; but neither of these cities
has received its money because of tardiness
in presenting the necessary papers at the
department. For the same reason, Brad
dock, Sushore, Chartiers boroush and town
ship, Edgewood, Harrison, Leet and Os
borne districts have not been paid. All the
rest of the 86 districts in the county, which
are entitled to $441,345 15, have received their
amounts. For Allegheny City the proper
certificate has been filed with the school de
partment, and it will get its school money
as early as possible, probably next week.
1 he increased appropriation to the schools
from $2,000,000 to $5,000,000 is not likely to re
sult in diminishing tuxes in the places to
which the monoy has gone and is going, as
had been predicted when a larger amount
was voted; bnt it will lead to the extension
of school terms, the increase of the salaries
of teachers, the erection or more school
houses and the better maintenance of these
institutions, whether old or now. There is
great necessity for lengthening the school
term in many of the school districts of the
State. In 1,200 of these bnt six months are
taught annually, and as a result or the in
creased appropriation many or the school
distiicts will extend the term to seven, eight
and nino months.

The BIJou Theater, Handsomer Than Ever,
Opens for the Season.
The BIJou Theater, brighter and more com
fortable than ever, was opened for the sea
son last night, and an immense audience
filled every seat and most of the standing
room. Lew Dockstader's minstrels were in
possession of the stage, and they could
hardly have asked lor a nicer match than
the weather and the greeting both were
warm. If numbers and enthusiasm go for
anything, Pittsburg showed last night that
she wants summer theatricals. The Dock
stader programme is new and entertaining
enongh ln the main. Lew Dockstader, as
usual, is the keystone ln the arch, and
his humor is Just as dry and as infectious as
ever. His songs do not include anything
very startling in the way of wit, or catchi
ness, but a good deal ot fun of one sort or
another. His broad caricature ot the Presi
dent and Mr. Cleveland is very lanzhable
of conrse, although the question of whether
such things are in good taste or even
decency mislit be asked. In any other
country but this Mr. Dockstador would only
burlesque the ruler of the land once Just
think of snch a performance in Germany
whew! But it must not be understood for a
moment that Mr. Dockstader is not funny
in overy thing he does. He is beyond all
question one of the brightest comedians
The songs of J. C. Harrington, the old
Irishman's ballad German yodel song and
plantation darky ditty, were excellent; the
versatility of this actor is quite remarkable.
He is a graceful dancer also. William
Rowe's pedestal clog dance is a wonderful
performance in its way an awfully warm
way last night one would think. There is a
weakness iu the sentimental end or the pro
gramme. Nothing so effective as last sea
son's "Picture Turned to the Wall," was
trotted out, and while Harry Leighton sang
"My Mother's Goodnight Kiss" prettily
enough, aud J. M. Woods rendered "Bring
Back the Old Smile" with delicate expres
sion and much sweetness, it cannot be said
that either song appeals to the heart, as
some minstrel songs have done. It is curi
ous, indeed, how narrow is the channel of
melody and matter with popular song
writers nowadays. For topical songs old
airs are still preierred.
In the second part the musical fooling of
Faike and Lemons was good, and Blocksom
and Burns' mock gymnastic feats were sim
ply side splitting. Indeed, the audience
was in roars all evenins", and the indorse
ment of Dockstader' efforts could haidly
have been heartier. If any objeotionis seri
ously to be made to details, the introduc
tion of an objectionable verse Into one of
Mr. Dockstader's songs merits it. Surely It
doesn't pay to offend against propriety even
in tun. The new drop curtain and decorations
of the BIJou Theater, which have already
been described here, including the new pro
gramme, which is neat ana tasteful, were
