Brooklyn, Aug. 4. Anything like a hit
at certain stages of the game today would
have brought victory to the Senators. Win
Mercer was in great form and Lis drops
kept theBrooklynH guessing. He was niost
effective when men were on bases, and
for that matter he got first-class support.
But Dunn had a few things up his sleeve
which he dished out "with tact and pre
cision, and he let the Senators down with
tlx. hits. The liome team, too, fielded
bc'ter than for several weeks, and this
aided them materially in stretching the
game out for eleven innings, and ultimately
winning by 2 to 1.
There was some clever fielding on both
rides, goad stops and fine throws fol
lowing each other in rapid succession.
"Washington had four errors, but not one
of thorn figured in the scoring, Brooklyn
earning both their runs.
Brooklyn wasthe first to tally. Grim com
pleting the circuit in the fifth on his
double and George Smith's single- The
Senators tied the score In the seventh on
Farrell'p force of DeMontreville and Tuck
er's douWc to right. Tommytried tomake
third on the throw to the platej but was
hearted orf on quick throws by A. Smith
and Dunn. "With two out in the eighth
Mercer got second on Dunn's error, but
he was left.
Brown liegan the ninth with a safe bunt
and took fceeond on DeMontreville's sac
rifice, but Farrell and Tucker gave ca.-y
chonees. In the tenth Selbachtlngled with
one out and met the same fate. Brook
lyn bcored the winning run in the eleventh
on Shoch'sdoubleandGrlm's single. Jonei.
"Was hmtatrirston ablock by Tucker and
gave way to Smith. Emslie was accident
ally spiked in a collision with Grim in the
seventh, but pi ucklly continued.
Manager Selee, of Boston, stopped over
and it was erroneously supposed that he'
was after some Washington players. Hi

UMPIRE HURST ARRESTED
Almost a Riot on the Ball Grounds
Ueer Glass Thrown at HUn Is He
turned by the XTinpl reuiul Seri
ously "Wounds a Spectator.
Cincinnati, Aug. 4. -On uccountof threat
ening weather only two thousand persons
witnessed today's doublo header. In
the first game Rhlncd was In excellent
form and the Reds won about aa they
pleased. The second game was called in
the seventh inning, on account of alleged
daikness, although the "darkness" was
not very apparent to the spectators. Tho
game went back to the sixth inning, mak
ing 1 1 a tie. Jn that inning the Pirated
had tied the btore, and in the seventh
rolled up six runs, so that "darkness"
piobahly saved the loca'a from defeat.
In the hecond inning of the second game,
Tim Hurnt called Holllday out when run
ning to second, "Bug" protesting that Pad
den tripped him The crowd, or rather the
"rooters," vigorously protested, and sud
denly someone threw a beer glass In the
direction of Hur&t. The glass rolled near
him, und did not seem to have been swiftly
thrown. Tim then lobt his head, .and threw
the beer gluts buck viciously into the
crowded ranks? of "rooters' row." The
glass struck John Cartuyvelles, a popular
member of the city tire department, over
the right eye, cutting a deep and long gash,
tioni which the blood streamed copiously
Cartuyvelles fell like he hnd been shot
when struck, and was for some time un
conscious. Many believe him to be so
rloutly Injured. Some one threw a glass
agaiu at Hurst.
As soon as it was discovered that Hurst's
victim was severely hurt, officers went
on the field and took Hurst into custody
und locked him up. Later he was re
leased on bond. The wildest excitement
prevailed, and perhaps it was well for
Uutst that the officers had him. "Rooters'
row" is on the ground floor of the grand
sand. "Red" Bittman, an old-time player,
took Hurst's place as umpire in the game.

NEWS FROM ALEXANDRIA
Jail-Breaker Campbell Expected to
Recover From His Wound.
Other Recent Attempts to Escnpo
From the Prison Come to Light
Suicide ut "Wuterford.
Alexandria, Aug. 4. John Campbell, who
was shot by Guard John MeCuen lastnlght
while attempting to saw his way out of
the city jail, was taken back to that in
alituliou this morning ufter having the
bullet extracted from his right thigh at
tho Infirmary. Campbell is not thougr.G
to be fatally injured. Mr. C. N. King, as
sistant superintendent of tho Maryland
house of correction, came here today to
take charge of the prisoner, but uuon the
advice or Dr. Gibson, the jail surgeon,
he decided to let Campbell remain hero
for a few days, until his condition im
proves. He says Campbell 13 an ex-convict from
the Virginia Penitentiary, and that the
statements mude by the prisoner that he
was ill-treated while in the Maryland
prison are without foundation. Campbell
was serving a term of eighteen months in
the Maryland prison for larceny, when he
feigned Illness and was placed In the hos
pital ward, and escaped by forcing the bars
of his cell window. The prisoner says
that he has a wire and child living. He
also stated today that he intended to es
cape from jail last night if it cost him his
life, and began to saw the bars of his cell
window almost Immediately after the key
was turned In his door.
Several attempts havo recently been
made by the prisoners to brpak jail, but the
facts were kept from th public. Cronln,
who was serving a aeutencp for holding up
a mun, aud who was released a fw days
ago, anticipated that he was going to be
recommitted, and had planned to mako his
escape. He took thp blanket from his bed,
and after tearing it into strips, wound them
into a rope. At each end bp tied a brick,
which he took from the wall of his cell.
This was to Vc used In scaling the wall.
After finishing the rope he removed several
bricks from the floor, concealed thn rope,
and replaced the bricks.
The officials, however, were suspicious
of Cronln, and made a thorough examina
tion, and discovered his purpose. Kniven
nuci saws nave niso oeen recently cap
tured from prisoners, who have had them
sewed between the linings of their cloth
ing and in the soles of their sheen, when
birarcerated. There has been considerable
adverse criticism in this city today on ac
count or the slwotlng of Campbell, but

A Hcmniliublc Cure of Chronic
"In 1SC2, whn I served my country
as a private in Company A, One-hundred
and sixty-seventh Pennsylvania Volunteers,
t contracted chronic diarrhoea. It has
given me a great deal of trouble ever
since- I have tried a dozen different
medicines and several prominent doctors
without any permanent relief. Not long
aco, a friend sent me a sample bottle
of Chamberlain's Oollc, Cliolera and
Diarrhoea Remedy, and after that I bought
and took a 50-cent bottle; and now I
can say that I am entirely cured. I
cannot be thankful enough to you- for
this great remedy, and recommend it to
all suffering veterans. If in doubt, write
me- Tours gratefully, Henry Steinbergcr.
