SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.1
St. Louis, SepL 27. If ever a club got
beautifully even for a defeat, Pittsburg did
to-day, and they
nailed the Browns
in a fashion which
depicted the sweet
ness of revenge.
Th e Browns
played a listless
game, and expe
rienced not the
in laying down
away with the
game. Hark Bald
win pitched one of
his old time games
and he did nothing but rub it iuto the
Browns. He saw that he had a snap, and
let up in his speed after the sixth inning.
Gleason and Buckley both had an off day,
Gleason especially showing a spirit of in-
cinereuce and slovenly wont wnicn reuecieo.
in any way but creditably.
In the seventh inning the team got tired
ot his indifference and gave a beautiful ex
hibition of juggling, fumbling and weirdly
wild throwing that simply resulted in
cinching the Pittsburg's walk-away. Pitts
burg's game was perfection itself, their only
error of any description being a Question
able one by Baldwin on his fielding of a
bunt hit. He was superbly backed upon
all sides, and when Killer's band began
paining him and Mack succeeded him
Kelly retired, and their team work was a
marvel to behold.
After the sixth inning Baldwin took
things easy and the Browns got in two
runs in the last two Innings on Glasscock's
triple, a wild witch In the eighth and Bro
die's sinfle, a wild pitch and two sacrifices.
The Pittsburgs hit Gleason at will, Dono
van, Miller and Bierbauer especially get
ting in their stick work. The fielding of
Shugart and Bierbauer has seldom been ex
celled. They had 20 chances between them
and accepted them all. Attendance 900.

VEIEBAW WEIGHTS OPINI0KS.
Bo Does Not Wont a World's Championship
Scries This Year.
Washington, iopt. 27. SJwetai) Manager
Wright, in discussing the baseball outlook
to-day, expressed the spinlon that it would
be better for the interests of the national
game If tho Bostons and Clovelands de
clined to play a world's championship series
at the close of the second half of tho present
"Just so sure as Boston and Cleveland
come together for such an exhibition," re
marked the veteran manager, "then will go
np a hue and cry of collusion and throwing
games, which cannot fall to hnrt this great
pastime. Better let the Bostons remain
champions of the East and Cleveland of the
West without maklns any further attempt
at superiority. I am glad to know that this
disposition is manifested upon tho part of
tho management of the Bostons, and they
can stand any charge of cowardice or lack of
enterprise that may oe hurled against them
for taking such a stand. Thero is an idea in
the minds or the public that the bunt hit
should be abolished, as well as the double
chnraplonsblp series. Encourage bunting
and sacrifice hitting by all means say I.
Baseball has not been a very prosperous
enterprise this year, and tho indications
point stronglv to a radical reduction in
plajcrs' salaries next season."
Shngart Slated for St, Lords.
St. Louis, Sept. 27. Shugart, the Pitts
burg team's short-stop, will, it isieportcd,
to-morrow be traded to the St. Louis club
for Glasscock, who holds the same position
in the home team. The ten days' notice of
release given Glasscock in Washington by
Mr. Von der Alio expires to-night, and tho
exchange for the Pittsburg man has been
on the books several days. The only bar to
its consummation is a cash bonus which Mr,
Von der Ahe thinks ho should have, and
this question will not, it is thought, be al
lowed to interfere long.

VALUABLE DOGS DESTEOYED,
The Becent Storm Kills Sixteen of Famous
Hunting Canines at Long Island.
New York, Sept. 27. Lightning did
strangely fatal work at the kennels of tho
Brooklyn Gun Club, Smithtown, L. L, dur
ing Saturday's violent thunder storm. It
resnlted in the electrocution of sixteen
hunting dogs with long pedigrees.
As all of the members owned valuable
dogs that were to be quartered on the club's
preserves during the shooting season, a row
of kennels was constructed on the brow of a
hill at the rear of the club house. They
were placed twenty feet apart. A strong
steel wiro was stretched from the tops of
each kennel, and thicker wire, forty feet
distant, ran parallel with the kennels.
Each dog was attached to the wire on its
kennel by a metal collar about Its neck, a
chain and a ring. The ring and chain allow
the dogs to move lorty feet from their
kennels without being able to flzht with one
During the storm a stroke of lightning
struck tho larger wire and oommunicating
to the dogs by the Individual wires, chains
and metal collars, killed sixteen of them.
One of the dogs thus destroyed was the red
Irish setter Lord Chumley, belonging to
General Wlngate. This dog was valued ac
$1,000. A rare breed of daohgbouud, the
property of Dr- Aten, was nlso killed.
John Downer, steward of the club, who
had charge of the doss, heard a terrific clap
of tlmnder and saw the lightning's blinding
flash. This was Instantly succeeded by a
chorus of yells and howls.. Then all was

dogs dead, with their nooks under their col

Charley Johnston Says a Few Words About
Sullivan's Becent Training.
New York, Sept. 27. Special. Muldoon's
statement in yesterday's Dispatch that Sul
livan's brain should have been trained as
much as any other part of his anatomy for
his late fight with Corbett caused consider
able merriment among those who have been
associated with John L. for years. When
spoken to regarding the matter Charley
"Mnldoon is losing his bold with the pub
lic and is trying to do something to get it
back. That's my honest opinion about the
affair. If I did not think that his statement
was a fling at Casey I would take no notice
of nim; but when he says that John L. Sul
livan was not trained for his fight with Cor
bett ho is wrong. John was trained as well
as any man in the history of the prize ring
and conld not have been placed in better
oondltton. As far as condition was con
cerned, he could have fought all night on
September 7, and Sullivan will say to-day
that he was a 100 per cent better man thon
than when he fought Kllrain. In that fight
be was puffing and blowing in threo rounds,
but at New Orleans bis wind and strength
were just as good at the end of the twen
tieth round as when he started.
"Muldoon rurtber says that Sullivan has a
tendency to take ton flesh at the brain, near
the spinal cord and this would make him
slow in his movements. Sullivan Is not near
as likely to make as much flesh at the base
of the brain as Muldoon, and If he did, why
hasn't Muldoon dlsoovered this before!
"About Muldoon's backing John for $3,000
and training him to fight auy man In the
world, I will say In, behalf of Sullivan that
Mnldoon Is not wanted, and he knows only
too well that Sullivan would not speak to
him If be met him on the street. Sullivan's
friends to a man stand by him as they did
before bis fight at New Orleans, and my of
fer made after that battle still goes; that is,
I will match him against any man in the
world for $20,000. I am positive that when
Sullivan reads the statement of Muldoon he
will convince the gentleman that be Is not
wanted uudor any circumstances."

men's Congress yesterday, when M. Guesdo

of Alsace-Lorraine, Herr Liebknecht said,
"Let us create our social republic; then the
Alsace-Lorraine question will disappear.

triumph of Socialism in France and Ger
many will alone solve It." His remarks
