Local BaU Team Haven't
Trouble in Beating the Colts.
Anson and his Colts made their last ap
pearance here this year yesterday afternoon
at Exposition Park
and they were very
nicely beaten by
our sluggers. They
were beaten at
every point and
they had no ex
cuse whatever to
make. There were
2,700 people pres
ent and they en
joyed the fun ex
There were times
when the rontest
was ot the most
exciting kind but
toward the finish
the home players had matters all their own
way and the game was very one-sided. The
colts began to play a very bad game
and there was no interest in the last few
Some Very tame Colts.
Anson's team are not by far as good as
teams that he has had in the past There is
still a great attraction in the Captain's
name, bEt iters is really little left but the
israrfioir. He does not play with the dash
and vim that used to characterize his ef
forts, and his team generally give one the
notion thit tbev are indifferent as to results.
This was how things looked yesterday, ex
cept when the visitors bv a stroke of good
luck toos: the lead. They did all they could
do to retain the lead, but they failed.
Terry pitched an excellent game, and ex
cepting the fifth inning the visitors could
do nothing with him. He was a little on
in that inning, and as a result iour runs
were made by the visitors. Terry was well
Gumbert pitched six innings for the Colts
and then he nas relieved by Hutchinson.
The score was tied and Anson had a notion
that "Hutch" would win it out. But he
was sadly tooled as Terry, the first man to
face "Hutch," banged out a home run.
Gumbert pitched quite a good game and
there nas some surprise when he was taken
out of the game. Kittridge caught a very
bad game indeed and the fielding generally
of the Colts was bad.
In the second inning Smith reached first
on a fumble by Connors and then Bicrbauer
Hied out to Dungan. Mack made a single
and stole second, Smith scoring on Mack's
plav and a bad throw by Kittridge. Terry
made a single and Mack scored.
The Visitors Made a Spurt.
In the fifth inning the visitors made all
their runs. Decker started off with a single,
and then Gumbert was hit with a pitched
ball. Kittridge lorced Gumbert out at sec
ond and Kyan got his base on balls, filling the
bases. I'arrott made a single to left,scoring
two runs, and then Canavin was put out,
Anson followed with a single, scoring It an
and a wild pitch scored Parrott
In the second half of the inning, after two
men were out, Donvan made a three-bagger
and scored on Farrell's double.
In the sixth inning the home players tied
the score. Beckley started with a two
bagcer and scored on Mack's single to right
Hutchinson started to pitch in the sev
enth inning, and with the score tied Terry
hit the ball for tour bases. The ball went
right to the left fence. Kelly got to first
on a fumble by Evan and a passed ball; a
eaenhee and a wild throw by Hittridge
Iu the eighth inning Becklev made a
single. Smith got his base on balls and a
passed ball and a ridicu'or wild throw in
center held by Kittridt- -llowed Beckley
and Smith to score. The contest was now
over, and the Colts easily beaten. The

from Sewickley to the tnrning point near
the Big Sewickley creek. In Sewickley

Before the return of the riders to the city
the officers of the day were dined by the
Keystone Club, after which a "smoker" was
held at the Keystone Club rooms on Penn

ing a pace maker not in the race, not fol
lowing the legular course or accept

RESULTS OF THE EVENTS AT LATONIA
Geavesknd Eace Tback, Sept 24. A
fairly good programme of six races, includ
ing two stake events, the Holly for 2-year-olds
and the Second Special for 3-year-olds
and upward, attracted a throng of 10,000
spectators to the scene of this afternoon's
racing. The Holly resulted in a rattling
conteat and a victory for Colonel Rupert's
Ajax, the 6 to 2 second choice. Bergen
rode an admirable race on the colt, and
took the price by half length from the
Moyne gelding, the 13 to 10 favorite, who
ran away from Dr. Hasbrouck on Thursday.
The gelding had his weight up this after
noon, however, and it stopped him at the
The second special dwindled down to a
match race between Lamplighter and Kings
ton. Although all of Kingston's races have
been at distances under a mile the plungers,
led by Miehael P. Dwyer, theubrown whirl
wind's owner, forced the bookmakers to
make him a 7 to 10 favorite over Lamp
lighter, 6 to 0. The first six furlongs were
run in 1:19, thu3 giving Lamplighter a
chance to get thoroughly into stride. When
Taral called on Kingston, half a mile from
the finish, he had a beaten horse under him,
Lamplighter winning the stake in a gallop
amid tumultuous cheering from the specta
tors. Only a few weeks ago Kingston was
the tnrf idol. Now it is Lamplighter.
Eaglebird, a well played second choice,
took the opening dash from Halcvon. the
pace maker, after a desperate tussle in the
final dozen strides, and Transit, 2 to 5, won
his first race when he galloped in winner of

warded for the discovery of the great

land proclaiming in tbundor tones the vir
tues of his party and giving to his hearers
cheap advice. Politics ho fever, had noth

Colonel McCormlck to his friend ilajor Jud
son, who was about to purchase a new suit
or clothes. The Colonel advised him betora
following his first impulse to call on DICK
SON, whose virtues are so well known, and
have him renovate at a trifling cost his old
suit, and thus save tho expense of a new1
one, and the Colonel's advice was heeded.
