0TS OF BIG HITS.
Tlie Beds Got Most of Them and Beat Our
Cincinnati, Oct 13. There was a flavor
of allspice about to-day's contest which car-
ried one back to
v the days when J.
f ( Palmer O'Neill's
played so many
away irom home
and died fighting
day alter day.
"When that lad
with the confla
gration 1 o c k 8
stepped into the
box he crew cold
ly proud alter he
had fooled the
Beds' boss home
knocker into striking ont It was a long
time before he coaxed another into
belting the air with his club, and ere that
occurred Ehret had trouble enough to fleck
his flame-tinted hair with gray. Latham,
JIcLMice and Brouning cracked out singles
in succession, sending one earned run over
the rubber. A liner into left seat two more
home. Vaughn reached third, and scored
when Smith sent a corker to lett There is
no telling just where the slaughter would
hate ended had not "Germany" attempted
to travel to third after Dwyer's safe spark
Donovan Ended the Inning.
Donovan fired the ball straight to Farrell
and Smith was caught "Pour runs will
never T7in this game" was the declaration
of "Calliope" Miller a bit later alter he and
Beckley had started things off with hits.
He was right Had the Beds stopped at
that limit the Keystone Italians would be
cauning another scalp for their winter pre
serves. Smith, however, forced Beckley
out, but on Slack's fly to Holliday Miller
skirmished home. The "Gladiator" put in
right had made two fine running catches
when "Lath" took the crowd into his con
fidence and said: "Billy Earle has got
Pete under control to-day."
The old warrior stood like an astronomer
looking for more canals in Jlars. There
was lite in every inuing. Van Haltren
drained down a line fly Irom Hoover's bat
in the third that turned a home run into an
out The Smith family was strictly in it
The Cincinnati member stretched one hit
into a double by a vest button scrape of a
dozen ieet He scored when Ehret became
wild after Dwyer's rap. The latter was
sent in by Holliday.
Dwyer Made a Three-Bagger.
Dwyer's triple and JIurphy's single
earned another. The same inning McPhee
spared Donovan and he came in on two
hunt hits by Farrell and Van Haltren. A
double plav euchred further chances.
Smith and 1-Iiret paired two-baggers in the.
seventh for a run. Holliday scored the
Beds last on hit, Donovan's muS of
Latham's fly and Farrell's failure to throw
home properly alter "The Bug" had been
pinned between bases.
The last half oi the eighth was exciting.
The first dews of evening had fallen. Far
rell as hit with the balL With two out
Beckley cracked out a liner to center that
Holliday failed to see and Jake reached
recond. The Pittsburg band awoke the
echoes of Lick run when Elmer Smith
dropped a ballot among the sun gods for a
home -walk. Mack's grounder was thrown
low by JlcPhee and things looked squally
when Bierbauer's liner got away from
Browning, with two men on bases Ehret
came to bat A hit meant a tied score but
he sent a high fly which Holliday took on
the run. The game was then called on ac
count of darkness. The score;

GENERAL SPORTING NEWS OF THE DAT
Morris Pake Bace Track, Oct 13.
There was little about to-day's racing to en
thuse the most spontaneous follower of the
turf. The two stakes features, the Essex
and Hunter, were won in the hollowest
style by Helen Nichols and Yorkville
Belle, both being prohibitive favorites in
the betting. Fairy, 9 to 10, Garrison up,
took the- opening race cleverly, Garrison
driving her more than was necessary for the
sake of respectable betting against her.
Mary Stone was looked upon as the best of
those in the second and made favorite at 8
to 5. Major Daly, 12 to 1, opened up a gap
of eight lengths in the first half mile, but
Dogett timed his run with Sleipner. 5 to 1.
and beat the Major out a head, Fidelo 5 tol,
taking third iroci Mary Stone by the same
Hydy was quoted a point shorter than
Arab for the third race, bnt the latter won
quite handily at 3 to 1; Milt Young, 7 to 2,
second, and Now or Never, 6 to 1, third.
The following events, the two stakes, were
then disposed of, after which the Moyne
geldir.g won the last race in a gallop.

That's the General Opinion Ke'atlve to the
Killing of Grover S.
Philadelphia, Oct 13, Nothing of a sensa
tional oharaoter marked the trotting at
Point Breeze to-day. Tho killing of Grover
S yesterday formed the principal topic of
conversation and tho action of the jndges
in expelling the suspected owner, driver
and accessory from the tracks of the Na
tional Association was generally com
mended. The large entries at the present meeting
have left two races unfinished each day.
In the 2:21 class to-day there were 18 entries
and 17 starters, the largest field that has
ever come to the wire in a trotttlng race in
Philadelphia. The unfinished 2:35 race was
won by Harry C, and both tho other races
went over until to-moi row after four Heats
had been trotted in each.
