f The home team won tho first game, and a
•*ame worth winning it was. At the end of
'the second inning the score was tied, and
not another run wa3 made until the last half
'of the sixth, when Kansas City went ahead.
It was only for one run, though, and there
was still hope, but in the next the Blues
made two more by terrific hits, giving them
a lead of three, and the prospect was indeed

of two base hits which he passed around* and

that the umpire had beaten them out of a

this time, and In the next inning a renewal

the tying run and two to spare, while in

There were probably less than 1,000 people
on the grounds when the game began, but
they were all members of the most accom
plished group of the rooters' organization,
and when they warmed up they were good.
Tho day was a bit raw and the overhanging
clouds promised to Interfere with the bat
ting at any moment, so only the old guard
came out to tho grounds at all. They'll all
be there today, If they have to walk. They
saw a. game that had a thrill In every In
ning and a row between the players over
some matter of umpirical interpretation every
Jimmy Manning's ball players are pretty
ecrappy. The Kansas City magnate encour
ages them In It, and he may be right In his
theory that It helps to win games. It is
rather tiresome, however, when carried to
the extent that it was yesterday.
AND HOLLY FLEW OUT.
When Pete Daniels went Into the box, the
first action taken by St. Paul was for Hol
lingsworth to drop a fly in the glove of a
young man named Nyce, who was to become
quite a well-known character as It turned
out later. Manning Is a pretty good bluffer,
and Sammy Nlchol's voice has often been
heard by umpires, but Nyce—well, Nyce Is
not in their class. He's away ahead.
Glasscock, however, did a little better, and
poked the ball down between second and
third so hard that the umpire granted him
the right to occupy first base. Billy George
bad just reached the plate when Mayor Smith
arrived, a little late, but In good form. Capt
Pickett called the meeting to order, and time
was called long enough for the players to
line up in front of the mayor. He said:
MAYOR SMITH'S TALK.
"I have been called upon to formally open
this park for the season of 1896, and, In so
doing, I am very glad to testify for the peo
ple of St. Paul the high appreciation in which
they hold Manager Comlskey for his work of
last year. The team of 1895 made many
friends in St Paul by Its courteous and
gentlemanly bearing on all occasions, and I
hope that the team of 189 C, largely composed
of the same players, as It Is, will continue
this course. Give us good ball games, and
win the pennant, as the team of 1895 came so
near doing. Manager Comlskey has fitted up
these grounds handsomely, and has spaied
no expense, and the people of St. Paul will
give him their generous support, I am sure."
While the mayor was speaking a drizzling
rain set In, and the bleachers yelled "Play
ball!" with great disrespect to his worship,
but the mayor was strictly in it, and finished
his remarks. He did not, however, pitch the
ball, as the
GAME WAS TOO EXCITING
to trust to any amateurs. George went out,
but he advanced Jack to second, and after
Jim Burns had waited for four bad ones, the
two worked the double steal successfully.
Pickett's two-bagger scored them both, and
Jack himself came in on Shugart's single.
He had no right, perhaps, to come In, but
the ball was thrown badly, and Lake let it
go through him. It struck the grand stand
back of the St. Paul players, and Lake, in
going after it, claimed to have been inter
fered with by Glasscock, whom he stopped
long enough to kick before throwing the ball
to Pete Daniels, who was near the plate.
Shugart took advantage of the situation to
come in, knowing that the ball was not In
play again until Daniels held It momentarily
in the box, but Pete touched him, or claimed
M'DERMOTT ALLOWED IT.
It beat St. Paul out of that run, but It
turned out subsequently to have made no
material difference. Meanwhile, Glasscock
and Lake were having trouble, which was
only Interrupted, by the umpire ordering the
St. Paul team Into the field. Hines hit to
Hollingsworth, who juggled the ball too long
to catch Hunky at first. Nyce drove the ball
out for two bases and Klusman's single
scored them. Mullane struck out Sammy
Nichol, however, and no one else scored.
Hatfield hit a long one. and Jim Burns went
under it, and the crowd cheered.
Mertes opened the second with a safe hit
end stole second, two passed balls giving him
a run. with little effort.
Lake, the Blues' catcher, was their first
man up, and he lined one to Hollingsworth,
who threw the ball three feet over Glass
conk's head. Lake went to second. Daniels

hit a hard one, but Jim Burns took that, too,
again distinguishing himself. Hines hit a
good one and Lake scored. Nyce, the short
stop, whose olive green undershirt sleeves
were the artistic triumph of the game, gently
floated the ball down over third. It was a
little over Shugart's head and he reached it,
but did not hold It, so the Kaws had a new
lease of life. Klusman flew out to Mertes,
but Nichol hit safely and scored Hines, with
the tying run. Menefee was the next man
up and he struck out, starting fight No. 2.
He wanted to lick Tony Mullane for guying
hia: about it, and they were in true gladia
torial position when Sandy McDermott
stepped In and parted them.
THEN THE FUN BEGAN.
St Paul went out In the third on three
outfield files, Burns getting a brief life ou
Nyce's error. Kansas City did not even
reach first base, Burns making another
grand stand catch near the left field fence.
In the fourth Mertes and Mullane both
struck out, and Spies dropped the ball in
the hands of Menefee, who was almost as
tickled as though some one had left him a
million dollars to be spent for face bleach.
Pete Daniels opened the fourth for the vis
iters, and he came up smiling like the sun
used to before the season began.
Pete Is always good-natured In St. Paul,
because he has been used so well here, and
he was even more delighted when Tony
passed him up a nice one, which permitted
him to amble to first base at a comfortable
Hunky Hines let Glasscock go under a
disgraceful little fly, and Nyce swung his
grcene-sleeved arms against one of Mullane's
best for a safe hlt.Klusman followed the ex
ample of Hines and it was an even break
two on bases and two out. Sammy Nichol,
however, had a patient streak, and was re
warded with a base on balls. Menefee had
the chance of a lifetime to do or die, and
he did not do. He hit the ball pretty hard,
but Jim Burns, who has been released four
times in the last forty-eight hours by the
Minneapolis papers, was right there, and the
side went out. By this time there was a
second rush at the paying gate, for people
down town were hearing how the thing was
going and were coming to see the fun. Hol
lingsworth popped one up to Daniels, but
back number Jack Glasscock, as the envious
rivals call him, showed Daniels that he had
not lost the batting eye yet. George also
managed to dodge four wild pitches without
being maimed, and was permitted to retire
form active life to first base. Jack and Bill
essayed the double steal. It was easy. It
was so easy that Jack thought he could go
on down to the plate while they were trying
to catch George at second.
THEY WERE TOO BOLD.
This was Imposing on good nature, how
ever, and the entire Missouri nine concen
trated itself around third base, in order to
floor the first baseman, and they finally got
him, but in the scrimmage George reached
second and Glasscock and Lake resumed the
Interchange of compliments which Lake had
graciously inaugurated near the players'
bench In the first Inning. Burns flew out and
no one had scored. Manning's men took a
brace. Hines hit safely, but Nyce forced him
out. Klusman hit over the Infield, and Nyce
scored on Nlchol's long fly to Burns. The
visitors were ahead.
Jack Pickett was hit by Daniels, but
was caught trying to steal second. The next
two went out on pinky punk hits to the
pitcher's box. Pete was fooling them badly.
Jimmy Manning then came up to give the
boys a touch of high life, and when the
ball fell outside the fence the famous ex
sprinter was en second base.
HATFIELD SENT IT SAILING.
Gil Hatfield concluded he'd convince the
old man that he did not belong at the bot
tom of the batting li3t, and it looked like
old '79. to see the ball go sailing almost to
the ruins of the car barns on Kent street.
When Burns and Mertes, who had raced after
it, discovered the elusive little sphere, It was
almost under the door step of the club house,
the Dale street end of the grounds. It was
one of the best hits ever made on the grounds
without exception. Manning had been across
the plate a long time when they threw the
ball back, and Hatfield rested at third until
lucky Pete made another safe hit. That gave
the visitors a lead of three, and the erst
wTille smiling fans began to draw down their
mouths at the corners and growl about Mc-
Dermott stealing that run In the first in
Billy George, however, was too busy slug
ging the ball to participate in this festive
amusement, and Just to show Sandy that he
did not bear him any 111 feeling, he
smashed the ball against the fence so hard
that Comiskey sent to the club house for
some new balls. Klusman said It was not
fair to ring In those nice clean white ones
when the locals were at bat, but Big Bill had
the umpire's deaf ear and he wasted his
voice. Burns allowed as how the hero of
four or five grand stand catches In the out
field could not let any little chap from the
right garden beat him out, so Jim sent the
ball out into the sand-lot for two bases more.
Pickett popped up a little one to Klusman,
and the cheers were dying down » little
when Shugart sent the ball over the fence
Into Aurora avenue. It was two bases anyway,
there was no doubt about that, but McDer
mott ruled that it was only that. Shugart
trotted the circuit just to show his confidence
In his own hit, but Mac sent him back and
the crowd gritted Its teeth In grim displeas
ure. That home run would have tied the
Big Bill Klusman opened the eighth for
the visitors with a dangerous hit, but none
of his colleagues could get to first base If
there had been a keg of beer or a peck of
diamond shirt studs there.
Mertles took two nice files In the outfield
Kraus was put Into the game to take Hol
lingsworth's place at the opening of the
ninth, and he showed what a great head
Comiskey had by sending the ball over the
fence for two bases. A painter caught It and
threw It back. But Glasscock sent a neat
drop to Daniels, and St Paul stock went
down again like a Bhot. George, however,
was Johnny on the spot again, and a nice
single was enough to score the run.
The crowd went wild. Small boys turned
handsprings in the mud, while the urchins
clustered around the players' bench and
made sassy remarks to Pete Daniels. The
rooters stamped their feet till the grand
stand, and especially the new part, threatened
to come down, and when the crowd had
roared Its lungs partly out, and the volume
of sound diminished, above the roar could be
heard the deep bass* voice of Comlskey at
third base, yelling:
"Why don't you get in the game?"
"Vot vos dot?" queried an excitable Teuton
in the grand stand, who was mopping the
perspiration from his brow, "Vot does he
vant them to do mit de game all at once
Burns made another two-bagger over the
fence, and the thing was running nicely
when Pickett poked a slow one down
to Nyce, who caught George at the
plate. There were two on bases and two out,
with one run to get to tte. Shugart was the
one to settle it He did. The ball that left
his bat ran a close race with Hatfield's
dynamic triumph, and when the Kansas City
outfield clustered around its bruised and torn
remains, the score was 9 to 7 In favor of St.
Paul, with Shugart on third base. Mertes
took pity on the Blues and gave Menefee a

BITS FROM THE BATTLE FIELD.
It Is confidently whispered to the Minneap
olis papers that Jim Burns will not be re
leased until the last of next week. Five
grand-stand catches and two two-base hits.
Spies and Mullane could not find the ball,
nor could Menefee and Lake.
Sandow Mertes showed well In the field.
Jack Glasscock showed the instincts of a
base runner, even if he did pay the penalty
of undue zeal once.

Before the game began, Manning and
Pickett, with the umpire, fixed the ground
rules. Jack, forgetting that the diamond had
been changed, pointed to the old stake on
the right field fence as the two-base hit

he does get hoarse ho can make signs to the

A Minneapolis morning paper set up an
awful howl because the Millers had to pay
for their own hack In the street parade at
Kawvllle. "What did they expect?" asked
Manning yesterday, when his attention was
called to It. "Do they want us to pay their
board? If they Insist, I suppose we'll have
to, but I will draw the line on laundry bills."

Gil Hatfield and Glasscock were found half
an hour before the game comparing the game
of 1896 with that of 1864, when they both
played with the New London, Conn., Maroons
against the Stamford Stars. In that game
Glasscock forced Hatfield out at second on
a bad run, and when the memory came up

There were a number of dogs In the game
yesterday. The first was a small pup with
out a tall who was bewildered by the sea of
faces and ran In and out of the diamond
till he did not know where to go. His an
tics aroused the interest of a big black one
who had been barking at the urchins on the
outfield fence, and the two together attracted
still another canine, all three making a sor
tie on Mertes, who stood his ground nobly.
Scarcely had they returned to the back yard
when a huge St. Bernard drifted In from
somewhere and trotted through the diamond
Just as though he owned It. It was at first
thought that Manning had signed him to
chase the St. Paul hits, but the animal was
above such exhausting work, and, after dis
playing himself to the crowd, ensconced
himself at the club house. Then a kind of

to mingle his record in with that of the
Western league, but he received a frosty re

St. Paul and Kansas City will play again at
Aurora park today, but the game Instead of
being called at 3:30 will begin at 4. Ladies
will be admitted free today. Manager Comis

week days ladles will be admitted to the
grand stand for 25 cents. Today, however,
there will be no charge to the fair sex.
Johnston will be In the box for the locals,
and Kraus will catch.
Either Callahan or Kllng will be the vis
itors' pitcher, and it is likely that Welch will
do the other end of the battery work.
MILLERS AND BREWERS WRANGLE
Tbe Old Trouble Over Live Balls—
Brewers Go Down.
Minneapolis earned its second game at home,
yesterday, but the Milwaukees tried hard to
make the Millers a present of It The Brew
ers hit the ball hard, but fielded miserably,
which explains the fact that they only made
four runs, the same number as the day before,
while Minneapolis, by bunching hits and play
ing a clean game In the field, made ten runs
and won the game easily. r
There were Just two things which spoiled It
from being a fine game—the poor fielding of
Milwaukee and a wrangle of twenty minutes
orer a ball. In some way or other, what
Twltchell said was a Spaulding ball was In
troduced into the game, whereas the powers
that be have declared that the Roach ball shall
be used. How It got there no one confesses to
knowing. Some of the Minneapolis players
claim that Twitchell smuggled it in to give
him a chance to kick and delay the game in
the hope that rain would come. At the time
of the row it looked very dubious, and if the
game had stopped there it would have gone
back to the seventh inning, when the score
was a tie. At the time Milwaukee was un
doubtedly beaten. Twltchell claims that it
came from the Minneapolis bench, and at one
time had the Brewers pack up their bats and
start to leave the field. Wllmot refused to
furnish a new ball for a time, and the umpire
said that he had received no Instructions and
did not know what to do. He hesitated about
declaring the game forfeited, and finally Wll
mot produced a new ball, and the-Milwaukee
players came back. The new ball lasted Just
one round, for Buck Weaver knocked It over
the foul fence. It was as unfortunate Inci
dent as the spectators became weary of wait
ing, and many of them left the ground.
Milwaukee did not score until the?'sixth inn
ingj when the Brewers tied the Scare and the
game became more interesting than ever. At
that time It was 4 to 4. Minneapolis made
two runs In the first Inning after Frank and
Lally had been doubled. Wllmot hit for two
bases, and Werden put the ball over the fence
for a home run. Milwaukee went out one,
two, three. Hi the second Minneapolis had
but four men at bat Stafford reached first
on a hit, but Taylor and "Wetterer struck out
and prevented Milwaukee fsTom making any-
thing. _ n,
Frank and Lally were doubled again in the
third inning, but Wilmet Shade a hit, stole
second and came home to Werden's hit
Speer reached first by being, hit with the ball,
but was put out at second. Weaver and Nlcoi
both flew out to Lally. Minneapolis went out
one, two, three in the fourth inning. Hart
man went to first on four bad ones, but was
put out at second. Twitchell reached first on
Werden's error, and Taylor made a hit, but
Milwaukee was unable to ssore that Inning.
Minneapolis went out almost one, two, three
in the fifth Inning. It looked as If Milwaukee
intended to score that inning. Baker singled,
Nlcol made a two-bagger. '-■ Baker went no
farther than third, as Weaver and Hartman
retired the side with files to Lally and Strauss.
Minneapolis went out one; two, three In the
sixth inning. Milwaukee made Its first run.
Stafford hit for two bases and Wetterer sin
gled, Stafford coming home. Minneapolis made
another run in the seventh inning. Ball hit
safely, Hutchison got a base on balls, Lally
singled. Ball scoring. Wllmot got a base on
balls, and the bases were full when big Perry
Werden came up. He was not equal to the
emergency, popping up an easy one, which
Hartman caught, and Strauss went out at
first Milwaukee made three runs and tied
the score in this inning. Baker got a base on
balls, Nlcol singled, Weaver hit for two bases
and Hartman singled, bringing the other three
Minneapolis made two In the eighth Inning.
Keuhne hit for two bases, while Hutchison,
Frank and Lally each singled, Keuhne and
Hutch scoring. Milwaukee could do nothing.
It was in the last half of this inning, after
Speer kad gone out at first, Baker had struck
out and Nlcol reached first on a hit. Minne
apolis was two ahead and had Nicol on first.
He remained there, as Weaver flew out to
Milwaukee fell all over Itself in the ninth
inniDg. Wllmot reached first on Stafford's er
ror, Werden went to first on balls, Strauss
reached first on another error by Stafford and

and Strauss coming home. Hartman reached
third for Milwaukee on a two-bagger and

THREE STRONG TEAMS.
Local Amateurs Have a Brilliant
This season some good things may be ex
pected from the local amateurs. There will
be no less than three first-class amateur
clubs In the field, the Plcketts, the Minne
sota Packing and Provision company's nine,
otherwise known as the "Packers," and a
new organization of ball fighters known as
the "Hamm's Export" club. The Picketts
will have Tommy Larkln and Harry Cooke
for twirlers, with Harry Claytor behind the
bat. The rest of the team will probably con
sist of Martin, first base; Keefe, second base;
Burke, third base; Murphy, shortstop, and
Mattocks, Thompson and Burke in the field.
The Minnesota Packing and Provision com
pany's team played an exhibition game with
Comiskey's league team, and Bhowed that
they had the material for a good, strong
team. "Hamm's Exports" is composed large
ly of the members of the famous "Spaidings,"
of St. Paul, which will assure those well-in
formed and instructed in the amateur end of
the national game that the Exports are ex
perts. The Spauldlngs played for five seasons,
and their record was one that any amateur
team might be proud of. This team Is
booked solidly for the month of May, as fol
lows: St. Peter, May 9 and 10; Duluth, May
