y the Contest.
Scranton made It throe- straight from
Wllkes-IJane by winning out yester
day's game In the ninth inning by a
Garrison llnlsh. With the exception of
nbout one hundred ladles who took
advantnge of free admission offered
on indies' day, the attendance was
about the same number as on the two
Wllhes-Uarre failed to score In their
flrtt innlns, and also in their second
although they secured two of their live
lilts in this inning. The prospects of
run getting for the visitors was not
very favorable until the seventh, when
lietts made it possible, by a strong
two-base drive to right Held. Massey
tried to throw Hefts out at third, but
made it so high that Magulre could
rot reach It with a ten-foot pole. The
little German slid Into third, but soon
recovered himself and crossed the
That enddd their scoring and this
error prevented them from the humil
iation of a shut out. Again they se
cured more hits than Scranton, but
failed to bunch them. The feature of
the game on thu part of the Wllkes
Barre team was the hustling after
leng, high fouls by Goeckel and the
batting and ileldlng by 13etts.
"WORK OP THE MIXERS.
Scranton began to lilt the ball in
the third inning. "With one maii'out
Magulre made a long three-base hit
to center. Johnson, who followed him
nt the bat, reached first on four balls,
and then Walters took a look at Keen
nn's curves and picked out one which
ho drove into the same territory as
Magulre. Two hits with a total of
four netted one run, and an earned
The score was now tie and remained
so until the ninth, when the Scranton
boys gave an exhibition of what they
can do when necessnry, and when
cheered en by the lusty voices of the
faithful rooters on the bleachers.
Carry was the first man up and hit
a short fly to center, midway between
Shannon and IJetts, the latter tried
for It but over ran it after making a
desperate reach for it, Barry was giv
ing all this time an exhibition of hit
the ball and run that would mako the
Baltimore's, envious. He stopped at
second long enough to allow Atherton
to make a wild throw of Bonner's
grounder and then sprinted home, but
Massdy's single would have earned the

of .Minookn, Gets n Decision Over
Gibbons, of l'lttston, in Six Hounds,
In what was probably tho best box
ing bout for a decision ever witnessed
in this city, "Bobby" Dobbs, tho col
ored boxer, of Minneapolis, and tho
lightweight champion of the west, last
night defeated Hugh McWInters, ot
New York city, also a colored boxer,
In twenty rounds before an American
Sporting club audience In Music hall.
They weighed In at 135 pounds. Nearly
400 spectators were present and they
saw the club management keep Its
promise to give tho very best kind of
entertainment In the llstlc line.
McWInters did most of tho early
fighting, but his superior strength and
splendid condition were outclassed by
Dobbs' experience and knowledge of
every trick nnd ruse known to the
Dobbs' famous right was scarcely
used nnd never with great effect until
the eighteenth round, when he landed
it full and clean on McWInters' lower
Jaw. That was tho beginning of the
end. During the remainder of the
round and through tho nineteenth and
twentieth McWInters by repeated
clinching only saved himself from be
ing put out. When the twentieth closed
he was as near to sleepy-land as a man
could possibly be and still be able to
CLAIMED A FOUL. "
A foul was unjustly claimed by those
In McWInters' corner In the eighteenth
round. Following Dobbs' effective
right cross on the Jaw he rushed a
straight left Into McWInters' chin and
sent him to his knees In tho latter's
corner. McWInters quickly regained
his feet and stood bending with one
glove on his knee and the other
stretched toward the floor. He was In
this position when Dobbs administered
Cries of "foul" fllled the hall and Mc
WInters' handlers chimed in, but Ref
eree Pat Murphy very properly Ignored
the claim as no part of McWInters'
person touched the floor, his belt ex
cepted. In Dobbs' corner were his trainer,
Ed, Bowman, of New York city, and
"Kid" Brown. McWInters was at
tended by his backer, Matthew Ken
nedy, of New York city, who looks
out of place in a ring; Harry Kyle,
a New York colored lightweight of
promise, and"Bllly" Gibbons, of De
troit. Eddie Coleman and Domlnlck
Gibbons, both of this city, were time
keepers. McWInters was a splendid example
ot the athlete and showed a remark
able hitting power up to the time he
felt the right, which, In the eighteenth
was the beginning of his quietus. At
the start he was the aggressor and
probably on account of his lesser re
pute, earned the sympathy ot the au
dience. It was not their fault that
Dobbs was content to take an oc
casional dose In the ribs or high on
his head from both left and right In
order to escape by clinches or bnck
stepplng scores of McWInters' blows
directed toward a vuluerable point.
It was this plan of battle, up to the
eleventh round, which kept Dobbs
fresh while his opponent was wasting
steam, although McWInters" work did
not fag him to the extent expected,
In the twelfth round Dobbs began
to work, and finished the round with
several lefts on the face. He later
continued his rushing, and in the con
stant clinches revealed his knowledge
of how to worry and weaken his op
ponent. Time 'and again he was cau
tioned by Referee Murphy about his
elbow, head and knee. There was not
u mark on either man .until the sev
enteenth, when a slight trickling of
blood started from McWInters' nose.
The flow quickly stopped, however,
and when the bout ended neither con
testant bore any evidences of the bat
tle. McWInters occupied more than half
the alloted time to rlsi after feeling
Dobbs' right in the eighteenth. Clinches
paved him from going out. He con
tinued to clinch during the nineteenth
rnd ducked himself out of the path of
reveral swings that might have ended
tho tout. In the twentieth round Mc
WInters was sent to his knees four
times, but always on ln-flghtlng nnd
within reach of Dobbs' legs. When the
last gong sounded the New Yorker
was all but out.
KANE VS. GIBBONS.
Tho preliminary C-round event be
tween Pat Gibbons, of Plttston, and
Mike Kane, of Minooka, 135-pound
men, was Justly decided in favor of
the latter. He did not, however, ap
pear to be as clever as reports had in
dicated, though he Is a strong, well
built young fellow, and with proper
handling may develope Into a good
In place of the "battle royal," which
failed to materialize, owing to the
weakening of the live candidates, a
brief bout for purely amusement pur
poses was put on between Harry
Courtrlght and a colored fellow, who
had expected to win the "royal," but
who wbs glad to use Courtrlght as a
substitute for the other pleasure.

north shore of Honduras, brings the
news of a revolutionary conspiracy In

and arrested tho conspirators, forty
In number, they being on Guatemalan
territory, and locked them up In tho
Port Livingston Jail. In spite of these
arrests, the Nicaragua olllclals rein
forced the Honduras troops.at Puerto

An agreement has been reaclied be
tween the presidents of Guatemala,
Honduras, Nicaragua and Salvndor to
discourage revolution, nnd they will
not allow conspiracies or revolutions
against neighboring states to be fo
mented and arranged in their terri
tory, as formerly.
