The Scrantons have had two weeks
of base ball at home, and will begin
on Monday a trip abroad which will
last nearly three weeks. Thursday's
Rime placed the club lm second posi
tion, which, by reason of their having
played fewer games than any of the
leaders, seems to give them a firm hold
on the position. The Scrantons have
not yet played with Sprlnglleld, Provi
dence or Wllkes-Barre, the three lead
ers, and consequently no accurate com
parison with those club9 can be made.
However, we have met consecutively
Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo and To
ronto, and the result does not Indicate
that any of these four clubs grave us
any more trouble than t hoy d Id to Spring
field, Providence and Wllkes-Barre.
Still, an exception may be made of
Buffalo, which lost and won a game
here; but, on the other hand Buffalo
Is touted as being one of the heaviest
hitting; teams in the league and In the
games with Springfield and Providence
made a larger total of hits than either
of those two clubs. So it appears that
enough games have been played to war
rant at least a general comparative
guess of what the Scranton team Is ca
pable of doing.
Manager Barnle will make no definite
statement concerning the proficiency of
his player3. The base ball reporters
of Scranton have asked the veteran
manager in vain to discuss either the
outfield, the infield or the pitchers, but
the only satisfaction obtained was to be
told that he was satisfied he had a good
team or some other such commonplace
remark which might be Interpreted as
much or little. But notwithstanding
the wily manager's disposition to re
main silent it can be plainly seen that
he is satisfied. For several reasons it
gives him considerable pleasure to see
Ihls club In such a commanding position.
In the first place, (the report had gone
abroad, especially out east, that the
mining camp of Scranton would be rep
resented by a mongrel team that is, a
few good players and many of no abil
ity; in the second place Paul Radford,
ithat whom there is no better all-around
player In the league, was. put in . at
short without any preliminary playing
whatever, and was obliged to make
himself popular under the most adverse
conditions possible. So Mr. Barnle
iwas happy because the mongrel (?) club
of the mining" camp of Scranton had re
pudiated the small talk of the east; and
again he and the public are happy be
cause the team Is playing with a strong
heart and all together.
There are only two reasons for appre
hension, Houle was taken out of right
field beginning Wednesday, not be
cause he hasn't ability, but because he
lacked confidence. He was supplanted
by Wlnkleman, a youngster who was
valuable as a semi-professional but
who had not had the 'benefit of a strict
ly professional training. In Thurs
day's game with Toronto' he made two
great running catches which an ex
perienced fielder might have been par
doned for missing. His slight weakness
at bat was plainly due to nervousness.

Everything considered, lie gives prom

he has been more severely tested no
absolute prediction can be made.
, With Pitcher Johnson's hand so bad
ly split that he will be in no condition
to pitch for probably ten days, the
team seems badly oft for twliiers. De
laney and Brown are In good form, and
arc really the only two pitchers who
can be put In against strong teams.
Quurlcs has been ordered to report, and
while he was considered good last year
he is an untried quantity this season.
Fox, up to yesterday, had been In
the box only once and then he
was retired In favor of Brown
after the fourth inning. That was In
the game with Rochester, which was
tho first game lost by Scranton. So,
If Wlnkleman proves satisfactory in
the Held, and Brown and Delaney, with
one good pitcher to relieve them, can
hold out In the box, Scranton ought to
return Junes 1 with a string of wins as
large as those of defeat. That Is a
fair expectation, but there are many
experienced cranks who aver that the
team will win two out of every three
The support of the Infield and the
fine work of Brady and W. Johnson In
left and center is all that tho most
exacting patron can desire. Not a
criticism can be made of Rogers', work
behind the bat. Several games won
were due partly to his coolness and
ability to steady the pitcher under try
ing circumstances. In the one game
caught by Patchen, against Rochester,
and which was won by Scranton, he
did well for the first attempt of tho
season. He missed two high and dlifl
cult fouls and did not thoroughly con
trol Johnson, but he caught well, as far
as actual catching goes, and will be
safe to relieve Rogers if that player is
Scranton begins playing abroad
Monday with Toronto, where, after
three games, the club will come south
to Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse,
playing three days in each city and
reaching Wllkes-Barre on Wednesday,
May 29. In Wllkes-Barre tho club
play two games, one on Wednesday,
and another on the morning of Decora
tion Day, coming home for a game with
Wllkes-Barre In the afternoon. From
June 1 to June 12 the club will play
three games each with Wllkes-Barre,
Providence' and Sprlnglleld in the order
named. ' .
Although one of the ablest and one
of the most important of Scranton's
players, Peter J. Sweeney, the captain
and shortstop, is probably one of the
least known in this city. Before the
regular Eastern league season opened
he fractured his collar bone In the ex
hibition game with Carbondale and has
been unable to appear on the field. He
has, however, been of much assistance

will be disabled for several weeks. He
was born In 1SC4 in San Francisco, and
from 18S4 to 1S89 played third base with
the Haverly's, an excellent semi-professional
club of that city. Ills profes
sional record is as follows: 1888, Troy,

Fred Dunlap, the old captain and sec
ond baseman of the St. Louis Maroons,
Is a rich land owner In Philadelphia,
Dunlap was one of the few players who
knew how to drive ti sharp bargain. He
always commanded the highest salary
afloat. No club ever got his name to a
contract without paying a pretty penny
for it. Detroit bought him from St.
Louis In 1886. They paid him a salary
of $6,400. Then Pittsburg courted
him. The Detroit people told him they
wanted to transfer him to Pittsburg.
"How much," he asked of the Detroit
boss, "do you expect to sell me for?'
"Four thousand dollars," was the re
ply. "It takes two to make a bargain,"
said Dunlap. "You can sell me, but first
you must give me half of the four
thousand, and then you must give me
leave to name my own salary."
The Pittsburg man, J. Palmer O'Nell,
came to him.
"How much do you want?" he
"Seven thousand a year," replied
The Plttsburger feigned astonish
ment. "When I say $7,000 a year," said Dun
lap, "I mean I want $5,000 of the first
year's salary from you. The other $2,
000 Is half of the purchase money you
have bargained to pay Detroit. After
the first year I'll play with you for $5,000
a year. But before I do anything I
must be guaranteed two year's salary."
The proposition was a bold one, but
Dunlap got away with It and In his
last two years of professional playing
he received $12,000 ifor his "services.
Prior to that he had received $5,000 n
year from Detroit and St. Louis, and
being of an economical turn he put
away a good deal of this sum. Most of
his savings were turned Into real estate,
and out of these investments he has
grown comparatively rich.

Horsemen, professional and other

this season to exercise both their hobby
and their horses. The Scranton Driv
ing park and Fair association has com
pletely renovated and Improved the old
Driving park to such a degree that it
Is the best of its kind In this section of
the state. The association is a member
of the Eastern Pennsplvanla circuit,
and will give two three-dny meetings
during tho middle of the summer and
In the early autumn. The Gentlemen's
Driving club of non-professionals are
re-organlzed, and during the summer
will meet at least once every two weeks.
Their first meeting, an Informal one,
will be on Saturday, May 18, and on
Decoration Day they will give their
first big trot. That local racing this
summer will be booming and successful
goes without saying. The new Driving
park management has equipped Uie
property with ninety new and com
modious box stalls, and Is building a
grandstand which will seat 2,500 per
sons. The property has been newly

Bob Fltzslmmons Is fighting mad
over the development that Corbett has
not only made up his mind to meet
Peter Jackson In the ring, but has gone
so far as to authorize negotiations look
ing to a fight with the colored man In
London next August or September.
"Its a ca?e of skin business all the
way through," said the Kangaroo.
"They want to throw me down, bitf
they can't do It. I had my suspicions
at the time that the match, was made
that Corbett, Orady, Joe Vendlg and
the rest of them knew that It would
never be pulled off. Now, here Is a fair
proposition: My season closes the end
of next week. If no club can be found
to offer a purse, I will fight him In pub
lic, or In prlvlate, within three weeks
from Saturday, May 18, for the side
stakes of $10,000 a side, that nre al
ready up for the Florida meeting. If
that does not suit him, then I shall In
sist that he meet mo this summer or
fall In accordance with the terms of the
Florida articles. The fact Is that he
has got to fight or quit. What's the
matter with the man. Is he afraid, or
what alls him? If he does not want to
fight on this side of the water, I will
go to London to accommodnte him, for
,he seems particularly anxious to get
as far.away from America as possible.
'Fight or forfeit,' that's my ultimatum,
and if It's 'fight,' then the quicker tho
better; I'm ready."
Champion James J. Corbett, who is
stopping with friends In a southern
suburb, indulged In a hearty laugh
when shown the Interview with Fitz
8lmmons concerning his proposed
match with Jackson.
Then he said: "He talks like tho
devil, doesn't he, when he sees no
chance to fight?. He wasn't so fighting
mad when he made the match. He was
going to pull my nose and do lots of
other things, but he did not do any
of them. He does not need to worry
about my throwing him down, for he's
too easy meat. My position is simply
this: ,"1 am in this thing for money.
It is apparent that the Florida contest
can't be pulled off, and no other club
In the country has offered a purse. I
am going to light this fellow, either
In this country or across the water, but
I am not going to throw away three
months or train for fun. If any club
will offer a sufficient purse, or if Fltz
slmmons can't get any of them to do
so, then I will fight him In September.
This tall; about fighting in a month Is
bosh, for I want three months to train,
and besides there Is no money In fight
ing In private. Any match arranged
with Jackson in London will be purely
conditional on Its being possible to pull
off a contest here. If, however, a
match can't be made with Jnckson, and
Fits wants to fight before the London
club, I am willing."
