TOUCHED EHRET UP.
The Chicago Colts Hit the BaU and Fairly
Out-Play tho Home Team.
Anson and his Colts came here yesterday
to play off two games; that were scheduled
to take place at
Chicago. It was
too cold out in
Fair region for
the Colts and
and they made
it quite inarm
afternoon for our
sluggers. Th e
latter were never
in the hunt from
start to finish.,
and that fact
alone made the
game a very uninteresting one to the 900 or
1,000 people who were there to see it. There
were many sa d ffctnres about the contest
ns far as the local men were.concerncd.
They could not hit "Old Hutch" very hard,
and the Colts just played their best. They
out-classed the locals in every sense.
The Victory Was Earned.
On the other hand Ehret was somewhat
of a mark 'for Anson's youngsters, and the
fielding of tho locals was wretched. The
errors, and there were eight of them, did
some damage, hut they did not entirely lose
the game. Of the nine runs tallied by the
visitors fire were earned, and errors had
nothing to do with them. The tact is Ehret
was far from being at his best, and when
the Colls did hit the ball they invariably
cent it humming out of sight almost. Two
of their cracks were homers and one a triple.
That is hard hitting and no mistake.
Bobby Cargo was put in to play short in
the second inning, Farrell being compelled
to retire on account of his injured leg.
Miller went to third base. Cargo started
off well, but he soon got all tangled
up and made some very bad errors. He
probably was a little nervous, and it
wouldn't be fair to judge him by yester
days work. He is an active littlefellow
and likely enough can do better than he
did. But he did not play anything like
League ball yesterday. Still the best field
ing in the world would not have saved the
game, because the Colts banged the ball too
much. AH -round it was an unfortunate
day (or the homo players, as Van Haltren
and Donovan muffed Hies that 19 times out
ot 20 they would have held all right.
Terry Umpired Very WelL
Umpire Snyder did not nut in an appear
ance ami Terry umpired the game. He did
first rate, and "there was no kicking about
wit of his decisions.
The locals went first to the bat nnd did
nothing. In the second halt the Colts be
gan their run-getting and the home players
their error-making. Ryan reached first on
a fumble by Farrell, and then Mr. .Parrott
sized matters up lor a corking home run.
He whacked the bait right to the lett center
fence, scoring two runs, of course. A
splendid double play by Miller and Beck
Icy and a strike-out ended the inning.
In the third inning Cargo began his mis
takes and made a wild throw of a grounder
by Kittridge that allowed the latter to reach
second. Ryan's infield hit-scored the run,
anil another double play, a good one, by
Bierhauer and Bcckley, and a fly ended
The home club scored an earned run in
the fifth. After Smith was out Mack got '
the ball don n the right foul line lor three
bags and scored on Bierbauer's sacrifice.
Kept Piling Up the Items.
Then the Colts piled some more up in
their half. "Hutch" started off with a
three-bagger to right center, and scored on
Kittridgc's little single. Jimmy Ityan
got his eye on the ball and thumped it out
to left center for a home run, making three
earned runs for their inning.
In the sixth, after Donovan was out,
Cargo made a single to middle and was
iorced out by Van Haltren. Miller's triple
The seventh inning came and the boys
lrom Chicago piled up three more. Ryan
started oil the fun with a single. Parrott
nnd Dahlen each made one, and a fumble
by 'Cargo let Anson reach first and Ryan
and Parrott scored. A sacrifice by Dungan
In the eighth inning Donovan made a sin
gle and reached third on a sacrifice by
Cargo. Miller's sacrifice scored the run.
In tho ninth Smith made a single, got sec
ond on a sacrifice by Mack and scored on a
single by Ehret Donovan forced Ehret
out at second and the jig was up. The

The Speedy Mare Wins the Wakefield
Handicap at Morris Park.
J A GOOD DAT FOE THE FAVORITES.
Excellent Trotting and racing on Lexington
and Chillicothe Tracks.
GENERAL SPORTING NEWB.0F THE DAI
Morris Park Eace Track, Oct 7.
To-day's racing was. tame, the majority of
the events being won in galloping style.
Fair weather, a fast track and 6,000 specta
tors were the opening favorable features.
The Wakefield handicap went to Kildeer, 3
to 1. She took the lead from Count at the
end of a furlong, and making all the run
ning thereafter won in hand from Eussell.
Sleipner, the 8 to 5 favorite, was a bad
third. Nero, 13 to 5, spread-eagled his
field in the opening event and won in a
gallop from "Wah Jim, 4 to B, Garrison up.
The talent then made Estelle an even
money favorite for the second race. Tbe
mare "flattered her backers for six furlongs.
Then Arab 5 to 1 passed her and won in a
gallop. The Eebecca-Bnwett colt's third
to Sir Francis and Miss Maude in the race
for the Matron stakes made the third race
look like a cake walk for him. The book
makers laid 8 to 6, and the colt won without
being urged. After the Wakefield handi
cap, referred to above, Adelbert 7 to 2 cap
tured the' fifth race from Speculation 8 to 1,
