Bait Was Always Caught.
Providence, It. I., June 29. The Rnmo

with Iiassett's sacrifice, a wild pitch
and a hit by Murray produced two
Dixon's single nnd doubles by Drauby
and Cooney In the seventh made the
score 7 to 0. The lead would have been
bigger but for Massey's Jump In the
air and a capture of a drive from
Knight that would have been good for
Then Eagan opened for Scranton with
his homer. "SVelghand put his homer
over the centre fence In the eighth In
ning. Three singles with a sacrifice pro
duced the ninth run for Providence.

A Toronto dispatch says; "Manager
Buckenberger, of the Stars, while here,
said that he would protest tho eight games
won by Toronto en the ground that some
of tho Toronto players aro farmed out by

been compiled with, and that there Is
nothing to fear from Buckenberacr."
President Lelmgruber wants It under
stood that In his opinion Umplro Urubor
Is utterly unfit to olllclatc in that position.
Ho said to nn Express reporter that out
of thirteen games umpired by Gruber the
Ilochestcrs had lost cloven. Previous to
Grubcr' nppenrnnco on tho diamond they
had wop five or six straight. Grubcr may
occasionally glvo Rochester tho worst of
It, but he certainly did no such thing In
Buffalo. As a matter of fact, it was Just
tho other way. In Filday's gnme, for ex
