[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Washington, April 20. —The events of the
past few days have materially agitated not
only the adherants of rival aspirants for the
Republican presidential nomination, but the
aspirants themselves. Blaine and his mana
gers do not fancy the large expression, of
popular opinion in his favor at so early a pe
riod, because it will operate to concentrate
the opposition against him, and subject his
candidacy to six weeks of animadversion up
on his public and private record, during
which a pressure will be brought to bear to
convince delegates that Blaine
cannot bo elected if nominated.
Blaine is much discomposed by
the condition of affairs, which bears the ap
pearance of a presidential nomination al
most in his grasp and yet beyond the clutch
of his fingi rs. Your correspondent met him
two evenings since between twilight and
dark promenading in the vicinity of the
Thomas statue, with head bent and hands
clasped behind him, apparently in deep med
itation. His face was haggard, and, contra
ry to custom, he was slovenly habited, cra
vat awry and wrapped in an old ov< rcoat
which hung loosely about him. lie walked
slowly and appeared oblivious to -the
surroundings, and other pedes
trians recognized !;i:n, stopped as
he passed and gazed at his retreating figure
iu .surprise. Mr. Blaine usually dresses in
faultless taste and walks with his head erect
and shoulders well thrown back, the per
fection of graceful carriage and quick, ner
vous step, and at this time he was clearly
out of form, evid< ntly harassed by un
pleasant thoughts or absorbed in solving
distasteful problems. The issue of J'i"-/:
last week, which contained a cartoon of the
dime amuseum and among the caricatures
other than those of Kiefer, Robeson, Logan
Conkling, Sherman, Tilden,Kelly and Grant,
represented Blaine as the "tattooed man,''
marked from head to foot with significant
allusions ty Memphis and Little Bock bonds,
Northern Pacific stock, Chinese demagog
ism, Mulligan letters, sunstroke and otiier
Blaine incidents, created a deep impression
in political circles. While the cruePy of
this counterfeit presentment will generally
reprobated, the cartoon made it clear that
should Blaine be nominated these accusa
tions would be employed to the uttermost
extent against his election and seriously
embarrass the programme of the cam
paign. That this cartoon has worried
Blaine cannot be doubted, although his
friends profess to take the matter as a huge
joke. One of them remarked that even were
these charges true, Blaine could be pulled
through with less effort than was Garfield.
The accusations against Garfield were worse
than those against Blaine, and yet people
did not believe iu and were not influenced
Administration leaders are apprehensive
of the worst. They recognize the ap
parent hopelessness of Arthur's candidacy,
but intend to contest the matter to the very
last. They say that if Arthur cannot
be nominated Blaine shall not win, but are
utterly at a loss on whom to concentrate an
ordor to defeat Blaine, Arthur's friends have
thus far made no nominations, while Blaine,
Logan, Lincoln and Harrison have secured
contingent alliances. Blaine has doubtless
entered into a compact with all the contest
ants except Arthur, and each one doubtless
relies upon Blaine's good faith and believes
he will be the residuary legatee of Blaine's
Although Grant aud Blaine consulted dur
ing Grant's last visit here, but
few understood Grant's strategy beyond the
fact that he is unalterably opposed to Arthur.
Conkling has kept very quiet, not because he
is reconciled to Arthur, but because he will
not consort with half-breeds, although his
antagonism toward Arthur is equally pro
nounced as theirs. He does not think it
necessary to play Falstail and stab the dead
perished by his own suicidal hand. A great
source of aunoyauce to Arthur's supporters
is the anomalous position of Bob Lincoln
The assertion is made that Blaine and Lin
coln have consummated a thorough under
standing that Lincoln is to
be Blaine's candidate in case of
Blaine's defeat, but that Lincoln is the only
man that Blaine cannot trick or jump into
the first convenient hole. Lincoln assever
ates his loyalty to Arthur and assures his fel
lows of the cabinet that he is not and has
never been a candidate for president, but
sincerely desires Arthur's renomination.
This is received with many grains of allow
ance, and while members of the cabinet as
ume to take Lincoln at his word and do not
accuse him of duplicity it may be stated on
the best of authority that the administration
men fear his candidacy more than that of
any other man, not excepting Blaine.
They argue that Lincoln is surrounded by a
coterie of toadies, of panderers, who hoping
to traffic profitably in the memory of Abra
ham Lincoln, persuade his son Robert that
the nation eagerly awaits his candidacy, and
the Republican party is anxious to be rid of
the trammels of Arthur, Blaine, Grant and
the rest. All that is necessary is an oppor
tune moment, when the people will rise in
their might and place another Lincoln in the
presidential office. It is the sting of the
tarantula, and presidential madness fol
lows like the dance of death, therefore
should the convention get into a wrangle of
prominent candidates and beat around the
bush for a new man, Bob Lincoln is the rab
bit most likely to be started from the thicket
and jump into a nomination. The question
of loyalty to Arthur will n ot then amount to
the value of a farthing and politicians and
placemen will turn their faces toward and
worship the rising sun. Lincoln realizes
that with the exception of Gresham and Tel
ler Arthur's cabinet has no political force or
following. Frelinghuysen wields no influ
ence whatever, Brewster is nothing
in Pennsylvania or elsewhere, Chan
dler is between two stools and
literally swallowed by navy influences and
John Roach, while Folger is a total wreck.
Gresham, although strong in Indiana, is con
fronted by Harrison on one side and John
New on tbe other, and Teller cannot induce
Colorado, a silver producing state to support
Arthur, who i3 committed against silver
coinage. There is, therefore, no national
thought surrounding any member of the
cabinet but Lincoln, and in this regard, al
though absolutely nothing in himself, Lin
coln preponderates over President Arthur.
8ENAT0B Hakrison is pregnant with pres
idential hopes, and thinks the grandson far
superior in availability to tbe son of a de
ceased president. Harrison believes that
Lincoln is backed by very sickly sentimen
tality. Harrison has won his spurs as a sol
dier and statesman, while Lincoln had them
buckled to his heels by the accident of John
Logan tumbling him into Garfield's cabi
The .natter of the charges against Judge
Advocate General Swairn is not settled yet,
and the talk iu army circles to-day is that it
is the duty of the secretary of war to probe
the matter to the bottom. Army officers
have been court martialed and dismissed on
conviction of far less offenses, and inas
much as Bwatm is the chief of the bureau of
military jnstice, it is argued that he, of ail
others, should deport himself correctly in all
things. In ordor to correct misapprehen
sion, it is proper to state that Swaim
was appointed judge advocate general
by President Hayes, not by Garfield. He was
confirmed by the senate February IS, 1SS1.
His appointment was made by Hayes at Gar
field's urgent solicitation upon an agn e
ment that after his inauguration he would
reciprocate by appointing Col. Rogers,
Hayes' private secretary, to an equally good
position, a compact never carried out.
The Now York Sun publishes a long edi
torial to-day demanding the repeal of the
timber culture law, which it charges was a
production of Minnesota, drafted by citizens
of that state interested in developing a taste
for planting trees, that it is a law under
which the government is cheated by settlors

The Horse the Center of Attraction at
ISpecial Telegram to the Globe. |
Lexington*, Ky., April 20, —A man who
cannot talk horse, think horse and dream
horse has no business in Lexington just
now. Everything is horse, and the odds are
that the men in every group one meets arc
earnestly engaged in discussing the merits
or demerits of some celebrated trotter. The
streets are full of road carts, hitched to
which are high-headed, swift-stopping steeds.
The dealers are vicing with each other in an
endeavor to work off their surplus stock, and
the breeders are busily engaged in distribut
ing their catalogues aud exhibiting their
stables to the admiring throngs who flock to
see them,. What with the numerous
sales of blooded stock that are taking place
and the preparations that are being made
for the spring races, which open here on the
7th of May, matters here are lively. There
are horsemen here from almost every state
in the Union, and many colts that have been
foaled and raised on blue grcss soil will here
after find habitations in other sections of
the country and crop their supplies of grass
from other pastures. In short, we have
horse for breakfast, dinner and supper with
tidbits thrown iu between meals by way of
"Man is the noblest work of the Creator,"
but after man what? A horse, as a matter of
course. There is noplace on the green earth
where this noblest animal No. 2 can be seen
in a greater state of perfection than in the
blue grass region of the corn-dodger state,
aud after seeing the broad acres, rich in their
production of grass aud dotted over with
thousands of blue blooded horses, I do not
wonder that people here are enthusiastic
over their pets. The only reason my en
thusiasm has not reached fever heat is be
cause I haven't a blue grass farm, nor yet
Among the noted stockmen here is Mr. J.
T. Case, of Wisconsin, the owner of Jay Eye
See, and who has'nt hoard of that famous
trotter, Phallas and other fast trotters? His
horses are now in Louisville, whore they will
be put in active traiuiug as soon as the sun
shines for a sufficient number of consecu
tive minutes to put the track in condition to
permit of such work. Mr. Case is a pleasant
looking old gentleman, and an enthusiastic
admirer of Jay Eye See, moaning the horse.
I had a talk with the driver of this famous
horse this evening, and learned from him
that Mr. Case had a fine list of horses at
Louisville, as follows: Jay Eye
See, record of 2:10*4; Phallas, record of
2:15%; Endymion, with a three-year-old
record of 2:33&; Victoria and Gurgle, a
pacing mare. The first three horses named
were sired by Dictator, who is now the prop
erty of Major H. C. McDonald, of this place,
and of whom I will speak in another dis
patch. Victoria is fifteen years old, but has
heretofore boon used as a brood mare, and
has never been trained. Her trainer, Mr.
Edwin Bither, thinks she will develop
Croat speed. These horses will make
their first appearance this year at
Chicago, and then make "the city circuit,"
visiting Pittsburg. Cleveland, Buffalo,
Utic.", Boston and other places.
"Will Jay Eye See lower his record this
year. Mr. Bither/"
"Barring accidents he certainly will.
Why shouldn't he? He is a year older than
wheu he made his famous record, is in line
form and perfect condition and is as sure
to trot under 2:1014 as the sun is sure to
rise in the east. Phallas will also beat the
stud record, 2:15J:f, or I miss my guess.
The horses were wintered on Mr. Case's
farm in Wisconsin and stood the severe
weather splendidly. There is not a wind
pulf, pimple or Scratch on either of them and
they arc now in as good coudition for a race
—except that we have not as yet had an op
portunity to train them—as horses ever were.
Mr. Case h:is a farm of about 400 acres
located in Wisconsin, twenty-five miles from
Milwaukee, and it was there his stock was
quartered through the winter. Let me say to
you he has several colts at home than can do
better than 2:40.
"Do you think Jay Eye See can lower the
record of Maud S.f"
"Mr. Case is willing to trot MaudS. a race.
I will say. further, that he is willing to trot
against any trotting horse living, provided,
of course, the association on whose track the
race took place put up money enough to pay
for the show. Jay Eye See is afraid of the
record of no horse."
From the above it will be seen Mr. Case is
banking on the ability of his flyer to beat
the world, and I heard a noted horseman
remark that he would not be
surprised if Jay Eye See cleared his
mile in 2:08 this summer. When we re
member that 2:40 was considered a phen
omenal gait a few years ago and now look at
the record of 2:10}^, it would not be sur
prising to hear the gait had been made in
less than that time. Will the horse that low
ers the record be Maud S. or Jay Eye See ?
We shall see.

ST. PAUL, MINX., MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 21, 1884,
A Free and Easy Chat With the Gov
ernor of Dakota.
He Explains How His Indictment Was Found
And What He Has Done For the
He is Not a Candidate for Reappointment
IJut BKay^BemainXSome Time Wait
ing lor a .Successor.
A telegram in the Sl'Nday Globe, from
Yaukton announced that the United States
grand jury was about closing its work, having
found over twenty indictments, and among
them probably one or two against Gov. Ord
way for alleged corruption in the organiza
tion of new counti•■ i.
Gov. Ordway with hi» wife arrived from
Bismarck yesti /Jay and took rooms at the
Merchants. A Globe representative called
upon the- governor last evening to ascertain
wiiat he had to say on the subject. After
usual salutations the governor's attention
w:;s called to the report and he was asked
what response ho had to make.
I suppose they have indicted mc, he said,
for matters in connection with the organiza
tion of Falk and Hyde counties. Those arc
the two counties concerning winch charges
were made and forwarded to Washington.
Tiie president Las examined them and de
clared thai f iiore is no occasion for any action,
and now they have invoked the machinery
of the courts, which is one of the most out
rageous proceedings I ever heard o".
R p.—How are they aolo to use the courts?
Gov. O. —It is all done through Campbell,
the district attorney, lie was attorney
for the Northwestern road and was
also retained by the people of Yankton
to prevent the removal of the capital. He
took tne contract to boat the capital com
mission bill, and has been very mad because
ho could not carry out his contract. His
foes undoubtedly depended upon his suc
cess. When the bill passed for the uncon
stitutional convention iu South Dakota he
came to me in a bulldozing manner because
I vetoed it. I told Campbell I had advocated
and was committed to the plan of moving
the capital whenever it could be centrally
located, and buildings secured without ex
pense tothe territory. I told Mr. Campbell
I would hear him as an attorney for the
clients who had retained him, but I did not
propose to be bulldozed. He has been very
bitter towards me ever since.
Rep.—But how comes he to control a
grand jury selected from all over the terri
Gov. O.—It was done by the most unfair
proceedings. The railroads failed to con
nect, owiug to a train being behind time,
and nine members of the jury were unable
to reach Yankton uutil the afternoon of the
day when the court convened. The court
met in the forenoon, and instead of waiting
for the delayed jurors to arrive a few hours
later, District Attorney Campbell insisted
upon filling the panel at once, from the by
standers. This was done, and not only the
nine but two more Yankton men were
already on the panel. Those were residents
of Yankton, who were of course hostile to
me because I had signed the capital removal
bill. They were not satisfied with getting
eleven Yanktonites on the jury, but I am
advised the district attorney allowed jurors
to be excused until the number was reduced
to nineteen, out of which Yankton had
eleven. I did not suppose even then they
would do anything so outrageous as to pro
ceed against me without an opportunity for
a hearing. I accordingly telegraphed saying
I wished to appear before the jury with the
records and answer any charges which
might be made. This was refused and I
telegraphed again offering to give the name
of a person who had approached me with a
corrupt proposal, and still a third time sent a
telegram asking a witness to be summoned,
all of which requests were refused. I then
telegraphed the attorney general at Wash
ington and he telegraphed the district attor-
ney instructing him to make a fair
and impartial investigation, and then
I sent the telegram which
I see you had in Saturday's Globe, and re
ceived the reply you printed. I have never
seen or heard of any such use being made of
the courts before, but it is what might have
been expected of a man full of malice. He
was in Louisiana at the time the Democrats
say the Republicans stole the state and he
organized the negroes, and when it came to
lighting left them to care for themselves.
For his services at that time he was given an
oilice up here and he deceived me with his
pious pretensions for awhile. He tried to get
me indicted at Fargo, but finding he could
not, gathered up his papers aud said he would
find a court which would bring in an indict
ment, and he accordingly went to Yankton,
and they say hu.s succeeded.
Rsp.—Do you intend to go to Yankton for
a hearing nowi
Gov. O.—I am going to Sioux Falls and
Vermilion to-morrow to attend a meeting of
the regents and shall theu go up to Yaukton,
but I understand they have called no petit
jury to try the cases, and do not propose to
allow them to come on for a month, until the
capital commission case is decided. They
probably want to hold these indictments up
to influence the decision in that case.
Rop.—What case is this you speak of'
Gov. O.—Judge Edgerton decided against
the capital commission bill, and the
case is now coming before the full bench
to ailirm or reverse that decision.
I expect the Yankton people wanted
to get me indicted without a hearing to affect
this decision ; I have asked thorn to produce
a single man who would say that I had ever
received a dollar or a foot of land for any.
official act, but they have not been able to do
so and proceed to indict on hearsay.
But I intend to give them a chance to try
to prove their accusations.
Rop.—You must have gotten used to being
Gov. O. —Tes, I have had a groat deal of
free advertising since I have been in Dakota.
If I could have secured as
much advertising for a patent medi
cine I should have made my
fortune. I understand they propose to
pilch into me at the Huron convention. You
see there have been at least 5,000 appli
cants for oilice from Dakota, and most of
them were, of course, disappointed. As I
have but few appointments to make all of
the disappointed ones became offended with
me. So too in selecting county seats for
new counties. If there are live towns in the
county of course four must be disappointed,
and then the four towns will join in abusing
tbe governor because the commissioners
which the law requires me to appoint did not
give them the county seat. So you see in a
groat territory like Dakota there is plenty of
opportunity to secure criticism.
Rep.—Ween does your term expire?
Gov. O.—It is four years from May 23,
1880, and consequently will expire at that
date next mouth, though I did not assume
office until the last of June, 18S0.
Rep.—Are you a candidate for reappoint
Gov. O.—No; T don't want it. I should
have retired long ago if there had not been
so much unfair criticism. The salary is only
$2,600, and it costs me at least S5,000
to live, so I have expended
$10,000 for the privilege of being
soundly abused, and I do not care to contin
ue the process. I was over fifty years old
when I was appointed, and had been in offi
cial life a great many years, long enough to
have retired before I came west. I have
tried to be fair to all parties, and it is only
the trading Republicans and trading Demo
crats who find fault. They don't like
me. I was confirmed by a Democratic sen
ate a large number being there who had been
members of the house when I was sergeant
at-arms. When the committee on appoint
ments considered my case there was only
one Republican to five Democrats present,
but they unanimously reported in my
favor. I have always given
the Democrats a representation on all the
commissions I have appointed, and as I have
said it is only the Democrats who have trades
with Republicans who find fault with my
course in the territory. When I went there
Dakota ten per cent, bonds sold at 80 cents,
and now their five per cent, sell at $1.05. I
have built ten public buildings, and they are
all paid for. I made the Yankton people
take care of their repudiated bonds, and I
prevented a good many counties from repu
diating their debts by getting the bondholders
to surrender ten year ten per cents., and ac
cept instead twenty year five per
cents. At Yankton we had
no buildings. The governor was
obliged to rent his own office; the legislature
met in a small narrow hall over a store; the
hotels were poor and inadequate, and prices
were excessive. Now we have a eapitol build
ing at Bismarck, secured without expense
to the territory, better than yours iu St. Paul.
It will be completed iu time for the legisla
tive session. It is much the same as the
Minnesota eapitol, but on'.- story higher. I
am content to leave the office with this kind
of a record.
Rep.—Who do you think the president
Gov. O.—I dont think he has given it a
thought yet. He docs not take up things un
til the time comes and when he does if there
is a good deal of contention he is not likely
to be in any hurry to send in a name.
Rep.—I suppose you will hold until your
successor is selected.
Gov. O.—Yes, but I shall be glad to have a

GOING TO THE CIRCUS.
Dakota Delegates in St. Paul En Route
There was an aroma of politics all about
the Merchants hotel yesterday noon, and it
was as apparent to the nose of a reporter as
cheese to a rat. Investigation of the regis
er gave but a faint smell of the political
cheese, but when Major A. W. Edwards, of
the Fargo Argus, came to the office and
asked for a dinner ticket, the snap was given
away. Said the gentlemanly clerk, "one
ticket?" "Well," said the gigantic major,
"I suppose I must buy two," and
he did. A search of the records failed
to show that anything particular
was going on, but it transpired
that about a dozen delegates to the National
Presidential Territorial convention that meets
at Huron on Wednesday were in town en
route for Huron. They did not get through
without paying tribute to the Globe rat, how
ever. The cheese was too strong. There
were Dr. Bentley, E. A. Williams and Robert
McNider, representing the county of Burleigh
—all wild, uniustructed. but all the time for
anybody who favored Bismarck. Alex. Mc-
Kenzie was along for the third house. This
delegation scatters, but may be put down as
Blaine first, Arthur second and then Logan.
Major Mitchell aud Mr. Hoyt, of
Morton county, had little to say, but
sort of favored the present administration.
Hon. Judson LaMoure goes for Pembina
county and is probably for Arthur, the town
of Neche polling fifty votes for him to six
against. The graceful and gallant Major
Edwards, who is secretary of the territorial
central committee,went along as chaperon of
the crowd and has several proxies in his
pocket. He made all arrangements for the
transportation of the delegates and is loud in
his praise of Mr. T. W. Teasdale of the St.
Paul and Omaha railway, who extended
many courtesies, among them being a special
car. It seems to be a stand-off between
Blaine and Arthur in northern Dakota with
probabilities in favor of the latter, though
Logan will find many friends among
the old soldiers. Resolutions complimentary to
Arthur's administration will undoubtedly" be
passed. Cass County delegates will be in to
day, thev arc Col. N. N. Tvner (Arthur man)
N. K. Hubbard, (B!aine"( J. W. Morrow,

man); Major Cj^V. Butts of Ran sou county
has four proxies and is instructed for Blaiue,
with orders to introduce a resolution favor
ing Louusbcrry for governor.

vention are numerous, both parts of the
territory putting forth strong claimants:
Hon. Judson La Moure seems the strongest
from the north part. Following are the can
didates as far as learned: Hugh J. Camp

Over the Ground In the
He Thinks Kindred Will Not Run if the
the Democrats Make a Nomination-
The Fifth llinnesota.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Brainekd, April 20.—The Neison faction
of the Republican party will nominate Knute
Nelson for congress at Fergus Falls on the
23d, and the same crowd will assemble in
Moorhead on the 24th to elect delegates to
Chicago to the national convention. Dur
ing the past week your correspond
ent has visited most of the
principal towns in the Fifth congressional
district and from the best and most reliable
information obtained am satistied that the
Kindred faction will make no nomination at
Moorhead on the 24th, for congressman, but
adjourn to some future date. They will
elect delegates to the Chicago convention,
however, and make a desperate effort for
admission, although the Nelson faction are
determined to freeze them out. Should the
Democratic party put in nomination ttie Hon.
R. L. Frazce the Kindred crowd will some
time iu June nominate Mr. Kindred and
from good authority I am informed he will
not accept but gracefully withdraw. Should
the Democratic party not nomin
ate a man, Mr. Kindred will
again make the fight and with the seven
tiiousand democratic votes in the district and
the twelve thousand he received at the last
election he can overcome the sixteen thou
sand Mr. Nelson received and thus defeat
N< ;son. It is pretty generally understood
now that if the democratic party nominate a
man that Kindred will withdraw from the
contest and if they do not put a man in the
held he will make the light. It is useless,
however, for Kindred to run if a democrat
is in the held with twelve thousand solid
Norwegian votes against him.
The Republican convention for this (Crow

noon, and elected the following delegates to
the convention called by the Holmeo com
mittee to meet at Moorhead on the 34th

Thompson, C. E. Webster and C. B. Sleeper.
All arc linn in the purpose to maintain the
organization which supported Kindred two
y v ears ago. The same convention elected

New Yop.k, April 20.—Gen. Thomas A.
Brady, of star route fame, Marine Court
Judges Burdett, Hyatt aud Col. Parker, who
are said to have been connected with the star
route contracts, met in the rotunda of the
Astor house last evening, and together with
Mr. Hugh Waldron, engaged in conversation.
From discussing other subjects the party fell
into questions affecting the welfare of the
nation. The debate drifted into an
issue as to whether the retired
statesman, Roscoe Conkling, was
not essential to the salvation of the
country. Gen. Brady expressed himself in
stentorian tones that attracted the at
tention of the entire assemblage in the room
to this effect, "Conkling is the best man of
you all. He commands more respect than
any man in the state." Judge Hyatt replied
in lower tones. He did not wholly agree
with the general. There was a tinge of con
tempt in what he said about Conkling. He
thought Conkling's retirement from the
senate reflected no credit upon him. Gen.
Brady took the judge by the shoulders, shoved
bim aside and endeavored to convince him of
the retired statesman's merits. After a fur
ther consultation the conversation became so
excited that Judge Hyatt deemed it necessa
ry to call Gen. Beady a liar, or words to that
effect. The star route general is as quick to
hit as he is to talk. On this occasion he
struck first, his fist coming in contact with
the jaw of the judge of the murine court in
so vigorous a manner as to give the judge
the floor. By the prompt assistance of Col.
Parker and Mr. Hugh Waldron, he was put
upon his feet again and further ferocity
BASE BALL AT ST. LOUIS.
Twelve Thousand People Sit in the
Rain to See the Antics of
St. Louis, April 20.—A remarkable game
of base ball was played here this afternoon
between Chicago and St. Loui3 clubs, of the
Union association. It was the opening
championship game on the new Union
grounds, and it was notable for the reason
that been 10,000 and 12,000 people sat
through the cold, drizzling rain to witness
it. The weather was so bad that it was only
possible to play 6ix innings, the rain
soaking the ball through, and making the
Held too slippery to play upon. The Chicagos
had one-armed Daily pitching, and, although
Dun lap, Gleasen and Rowe, the veterans of
the home team, hit him hard, the yonngsters
could not touch him,and he struck out no less
than ten of them. The Chicagos played a
very good game, and their defeat was as
much due to bad luck as anything else.
Their work in fact impressed the crowd with
the belief that the St. Louis club is not to
have a walk over for the Union association
pennants, as was predicted some days ago.
