Special to tho Scranton Tribune.
Buffalo, N. Y., June 4. Buffalo saw
the best base ball of tho season to date
this afternoon when the Buffalo and
Scranton clubs met at Olympic park.
.Two games were played and each club
Tho Bisons took the first nnd the
Scranton's the second. In the first
Souders and Wellner did the twirling
for their respective sides and there
was but little choice In their work. The
features were a home run by Clymer In
the first Inning when he put It over the
left field fence and a sensational catch
by the same player.
"Grandpa Morse was a prize-winning
conundrum In the second game and
had the Bisons' guessing up to tho
very last inning with his south-paw
curves. Up to tho eighth Inning but
two safe hits were made off his deliv
ery and these by Urquhart. Then two
safe hits were made, but both bats
. men were retired before reaching tho
In the ninth Buffalo scored two runs.
Ollle Beard's slashing homo run
. over tho left field fence was the prize
peach of the game. 1'op Wlso undo
a great fielding record accepting six
teen ehanevs without an error.

"Pop" Morso would pitch tho second
game, the Buffalo Express remarked:
"Grandpa Morae will do tho honors for
tho Scrantonlans. Morso belongs in
Globe-trotter Billy Earlo's class, as ho
has played In pretty nearly every league
that has been organized In this country
within tho last decade, and In nearly ev
ery club. How ho managed to keep nway
from the Eastern league bo long Is a
mystery." Borne ono has been "Jolly

soven, but has seen very little of tho
base ball world, having gained most of
his experience In tho Now England and
ono other minor league.

Philadelphia, June 4. XTmpIro McDon
ald forfeited today's gamo to tho Phillies
because, as ho s.ild, the Pittsburg men
were throwing the ball around tho Held
for tho purposo of delaying the gamo un
til a threatened rain should arrive. Tho
trouble began when Pittsburg was at the
ba't In the fourth Inning. Smith hit a
ball which McDonald called foul, but
which dovlslon was vigorously protested
by tho Pittsburg men. McDonald finally
fined Donovan and put him out of the
game, Kuhns taking his place. Davis
and Klllen wero also fined. The PIratjs
took the Held and Klllen, In warming up,
threw a ball at Davis, which went Into
the seats. Boyle, of tho Phillies, claimed
that tho Plttsburgers were delaying tho
game In the hopo of rain, nnd McDonald
thereupon gavo the gamo to Philadelphia
by the score of 9 to 0. Tho actual scoro
was I to 0 In favor of Philadelphia. Rain

ter Wednesday's gamo: "Sandy Griffin

tho sound of tho 4 o'clock gong till tho

Umplro Oaffney In the last Innings.
Don't think thoso Scranton fellows
don't play the game because they wero
