ia rarely, indeed, that a baseball lov
ing people is treated to such a yellow
and fantastic burlesque of the na
tional game as that which took place
at Aurora park yesterday.
The phrase "took place" is used ad
visedly, even although it may not be
strictly correct. It is possible that
those rare combinations of chump
fielding, butter-finger muffs, and
wooden-headed base running that cost
the locals the game were really super
vised' by some all powerful force whose
ways are beyond the comprehension
of the ordinary "fan." But it had
every appearance of being the
happy result of mischance mul
tiplied into circumstantial hard luck
and increased by the inherent
proneness of man to err when he has
half a chance. So let's sa; that it
occurred, and not blame ai./one for
anything eyjept Just what he did
Well, there's Johnston. Aside from
the fact that he gave seven men bases
on balls, and hit Menefee three times
besides, and was slugged all round
the lot for eighteen safe ones, John
elon pitched a pretty steady game.
That is to say, it was not much worse
anywhere 1 than at any other given
point. For general excellence it prob
ably would net have taken better than
third place in the Connemara patch
sweepstakes, but it was a fair, reli
able game. You could rely each in
ning on about so many bases on balls
and so many hits. Occasionally he
created a diversion by a wild throw,
and twice, if recollection serves
aright, he perpetrated that artistic
triumph cf baseball known as a strike
out, but as a matter of cold hard
fact, Amos Rusie is winning nearly as
many games as Johnston, and Amos
hasn't warmed his arm up this sea
Then there's Jack Pickett. You all
know Jack. Been playing a great
game on the trip. Taking all kinds of
chances and occasionally hitting the
ball. Yesterday was Jack's off day.
He couldn't have stopped a policeman
with a box of cigars. Jack had his
mustache shaved off while he was
away, and the shorn Samson act
which he did yesterday as a sort of
entracte specialty was anything but
delightful to the assembled multitude
—about 346 of whom had paid to get
In. Let's draw the mantle of charity
about his trembling form and pass on.
Billy George and Jack Glasscock
•were seized with locomotor ataxia or
some other terrible trouble when they
were both away from the bases to
which, under the rules, they should
have been immediately continguous.
Instead of making a double steal they
were victims of a double play,and that
is a good deal of difference. They re
trieved themselves somewhat by their
work at the stick, but if there is any
thing which will make varicose veins

sundry fly balls and a case of hit by
Then the locals started. Tim O'-
Rourke sent a hot one through the
dust and Mertes lined one out for two
bases. Stratton dropped a fly in
Hines' hands, but Billy George set
the ball sailing away down toward
the corner of the fence. Menefee made
one jump for It, missed it, and then
ran after it. Meantime George
reached third and, it was about an
even tet he could have scored, for it
was a daisy hit. He stayed at third,
however, and died there, Glasscock
striking out, and Shugart being the
victim of a phenomenal stop by Klus
man on a wide ball back of first base.
Kansas City had two cut, and Kling
on first base by virtue of four balls
when Manning sent the ball into the
soft sand back of O'Rourke. It died
like a log and while George was reach
ing it, Jimmy scurried to second.
Menefee singled, and Manning scored.
Nyce took a base on four, and then
Klusman hit well to center. Mertes
threw into the diamond, hit or miss,
and while Spies was finding the ball,
he kicked it into the lot again with
his feet. Henry went after it, but
Johnson neglected to cover the plate
and Nyce ambled in to the plate li"c
a coyote raiding a chicken coop by
Lake hit in Pickett's direction, and
went out at first, but the score was
seven to two, and, moreover, the locals
did not gain any in the fifth.
Hunky Hines, once the star hitter,
did not have his eye on the ball at all
yesterday, but he was the only one
out, when Gil Hatfield gave the hurt
ling sphere a dainty poke into the
fence so hard that the pine wall rocked
like a cradle in a day nursery. Kling
went out, and Callahan bunted. He
beat the ball to first, but he need not
have to, for Johnston threw it wild,
and it struck the right bleacher real
hard. Hatfield had no trouble scoring.
Then Pickett gave Manning a life, and
Menefee was hit by the ball for the
third time. Nyce followed Manning's
example of a two bagger, and the total
score was ten to two when Klusman
dropped one, which Scott Stratton
caught in a hard run.
The locals then took a sudden but
decided brace. Sandow rattled the ball
for two bases, and Stratton waited for
four. Callahan watched the ball drive
down the left foul line when George
came up, and became so excited that
he hit the veteran Glasscock. That
filled the bases with one run in and
n«» out. Shugart met the ball fair and
square and when it dropped there was
a dent in Fuller street which could be
identified by the seams on the ball.
The locals were only three behind, but
they could not catch up that inning.
Kansas City had another base on balls
and two men out when Johnston per
mitted the inevitable two bagger, the
villain this time being round-faced
Kling. Callahan made his third hit
of the day, pretty good for a pitcher,
and scored the twelfth■> run of the
game. Manning hit safely, Menefee
waited for four, and the bags were
fun. whea Nyce struck out.
Mertes opened the seventh with a
single. Stratton sent a long one, but
Menefee caught it. George and Glass
cock hit safely and Sandow scored.
George was off second and Lake threw
to catch him. The ball struck Nyce on
the arm and bounded into the field.
Manning went after it. George thought
ho would try to get to third, and Glass
ccck started for second. George, mean
time, changed his mind, and it was tco
late for Glasscock to get back. George
changed his mind again and resumed
his journey toward third", with the
result that both were caught lurking
between bases. It closed abruptly an
inning that promised serious trouble to
Callahan. The Southerners were shut
out in their half, but St. Paul fared
no better in the eighth. A sharp double
play put Kansas City out in the same
inning with only one run, when one
man was out, and three on bases. The
luck was begining to change.
O'Rourke opened the ninth with a
single, and Mertes waited for four balls
successfully, although two strikes
were called on him. Stratton hit a
sharp one, which Callahan reached for
and turned almost far enough to pass
Manning. Jimmy stopped it, however,
and Scott was ont. George, however,
was not at all discouraged, and drove
the ball into left field. Glasscock hit
a high fly. Menefee and Kling both
went after it, and it fell between them.
Menefee stumbled and fell like a log,
lying on the grass for several minutes
before he recovered sufficiently to get
off the field. Meanwhile a grocery
wagon outside the park was run away
with and another man was hurt, but
not seriously. Kling: went into center
field and Pitcher Barnett was put in
the right garden. Barnett did not have
a very good eye for high ones and woe
fully misjudged Shugart's pop-up, bo
the socre was gradually coming close
to a tie. Pickett was next on the list,
and he rolled a nice one down into the
sand. It looked so easy that Manning
cculd almost taste his supper, for it
would have ended the game, but just
before it reached him it struck a shad
ow or a footprint, or something equally
intangible, and bounced right over the
head of the entrprising manager from
the South. That tied the score. Spies
struck out, but in Johnston's turn Jim
Burns went up to the plate amid great
cheering. Just to show that his sore
finger was nearly well, and that the
public confidence was not misplaced,
Mr. Burns applied his bat to the ball
so squarely that when the latter was
picked up in deep center field the score
was 14 to 13 in favor of St. Paul, with
Jim on third base. O'Rourke hit a
nice double, lengthening the .lead an
other, and helped some, but Mertes
sent a dewdrop to Kling, and it re
mained for Kansas City to catch up.
Tony Mullane had warmed up a little,
and it looked as rosy as a June sunset
at Minnetouka when he struck out big
Bill Klusman, but that was the last of
the good news. Lake hit safely and
Pickett fumbled Hines' easy one. Hat
field and Kling followed with safe ones, j
which tied the score. Callahan waited I
for four, and the bases were full.
Manning flew out, and when Barnett
was hit by the ball Hatfield was forced
The crowd, however, did not see the
ball hit Barnett, and supposed that
Barnett kept Spies from touching Hat
field as he came in, and they were go
ing to mob the umpire, and, in fact, he
was surrounded by the players for pro
tection as he left the grounds. Score:

UNLUCKY FOR MILWAUKEE.
The Thirteen Made Yesterday by
Who said 13 was unlucky?
Minneapolis opened the new grounds on
Friday, made 13 rut and 13 hits, and still
won the best game of the season. A club
that can overcome such a hoodoo as that
ought never to lose a game.
It certainly was a happy day for the base
ball fans, and a happier crowd never, left
a ball game in Minneapolis than the throng
that swarmed out of the new park at Blais
dell avenue and Thirty-first street at 6
o'clock last night. They were pleased with
the game, for It had been full of ginger from
start to finish; they were tickled with the
new grounds, which are as fine as any in the
Western league; in fact there were nearly
4,000 who were pleased with everything.
There was a baker's dozen who were *st
overjoyed, but they were members of the
Milwaukee team, and their whole trouble
was that the Millers had baldly exposed
them, exploded their phenom, Clausen, and
the general clumsy work in the field.
Larry Twitchell never intended to lose
yesterdays game, and he did succeed in giv
ing the Minneapolis fans about the worst
Ecare of the season. He wanted to have re
venge on the Millers for the way in which
they had handled the Brewers at Milwaukee,
and he knew of no better way to humiliate
them .than to take such an important game
as that of yesterday; to win the first game
one the new Minneapolis grounds would be
a ten-strike. It was not Clausens turn to
pitch, but Larry felt that he must have the
game, and Clausen was the only pitcher he
had he thought could hold down the hard
hitting Millers; he had done it before to
perfection, and there was no reason why
he could not do it again. Either Larry was
badly fooled in Clausen or Clausen gave him
the "throw down," for, while he started out
like a three-time winner, he could not keep
up the pace, and fell by the wayside, aided
by deplorable errors on the part of his com

ST. LOUIS, June 19.—The following
address was given out today by the
Obeying the call of duty and justi
fied by the common citizenship of
this republic, we address this com
munication to the people and the forth
coming conventions of the United
States. In doing so we claim no au
thority or right other than belongs
to every man to express personal con
victions, but we respectfully solicit
the attention of all who believe that
the time has come for a return to the
simpler and more direct method of
naming men for national service than
has obtained in recent years. Political
party organization is necessary be
cause without it the individual voter
is dumb; but the party is only the
means, not the end; it is the voice
and not the sense. As the world ad
vances in this^ wonderful epoch of in
tellectual development and physical
improvement there is a constant re
quirement for better things. The in
dividual feels that requirement and
he heeds it or he fails in life's en
deavor. Parties must also obey the
It follows, therefore, that the mo
ment a party shall choose to stand
still or retrogress, it is no longer effi
cient to achieve the end to which the
people are necessarily destined. There
is no sanctity in mere party name, and
the mark of decay is set on individ
ual strength in a nation when the ab
solute rule of political organization
coerces man from the truth for the
sake of expediency and establishes
insincere submission to partisan rule
for the sake of expediency.
Recognizing the value and- the
splendid achievement of political par
ties in this country, aa elsewhere, we
are constrained to believe that for
more than twenty years no one of
them has been entirely sufficient for
the needs of the people. The great
trend to better things, resting in the
heart and purposes of all men, has
been stayed during the latter part of
this generation by the failure of par
ties to express in their achievements
the highest hope and aspiration of
the mass of the people who constitute
the party. And there has been grow
ing in this country—swelling with each
each recurrence of national election —
a great mass of independent thinkers
and voters which, failing within itself
to control, has gravitated between the
two great parties.
Since 1872 (excepting possibly the
election of 1876) the pendulum has
swung from side to side with each four
years. In 1872 the Republican party
elected the president; in 1876 the Demo
cracy claimed the election; in 1880 the
Republican party elected, in 1884 the
Democrats elected, In 1888 the Republi
cans elected, in 1892 the Democrats
elected, in 1896 (until within a few
weeks) it has been conceded that the
Republicans would be elected. What
has been the cause of this mighty
oscillation of a mass which this year
has probably obtained controlling pro
portions? Every man can answer to
himself. If he has been a manufac
turer, if he has felt a hope to see great
er justice done and he has seen that
hope blasted; if he knows that the gen
eral disaffection has arisen from the
fact that party promises made were
broken to the people by party perfor
mance, he knows that so soon as the
el lotion was over and successful candi
dates installed they became the ser
vitors of the party arid the advocates
of a narrow and not progressive policy
within which alone there seemed to be
an assurance of selfish safety and

It is not that the people have not
felt the stirring's of determination,
than this inaction has endured; but
because of the rule of party which has
largely controlled men in and out of
office. It has become a source of re
proach to any man that he should dare
to renounce all allegiance to organiza

ventions, although it is common know

social evolution In this country, mone
tary reform stands as the first req
uisite. This policy, however promising
of good results, can take its place.
Continuation during the next four
years of the present financial system
will bring down upon the American
people that cloud of impending evil, to
evert which should be the first thought
of statemen and the first prayer of
patriots. Our very institutions are. at
stake. To-day, with the rapidly increas
ing population, with widely swelling
demands, the basis of our money is
relatively contracting, and the people
are passing into a servitude all the
more dangerous because it is not physi
cally apparent. The nation itself is
losing the sturdy courage which could
make it defiant in the face of injustice
and internal wrong. From the farmer
and tradesman to the government
there is apparent the shrinking frdm
giving offense, lest the vengeance of
some offended financial power should
descend. The business man submits
some portion of his Judgment and his
will, and the nation submits some por
tion of its international right, lest some
mighty foreign creditor shall make
destructive demands. Where will all
this end if the people shall decline to
assert themselves? Where will it end
if the older parties in their determina
tion to maintain themselves in power,
for powers sake alone, shall refuse to
recognize the right and the hope of
This country oannot much longer ex
ist free and independent against all the
rest of the world, nor can its people
much longer be free in the noblest
sense of the term if the United States,
a debtor natlo*. shall follow a policy
dictated by creditor nations. We pro
duce all of the necessaries of life. Other
nations consume our products. In the
race for existence it is a constant
struggle between producers and con
sumers. Our present system of money
diliberately submits to the desire and
the profit of creditor nations leaving
us in the mass, and as individuals, a
prey to the money gathering and the
deadly cheapening of the old world.
As the debt to creditors increases on
the masses of the nations, the price of
human production on the farm and in
the workshop is decreased with appall
ing rapidity, exacting more and more
toil from our citizens to meet the given
demand and holding over their heads a
threat of the day when confiscation to
meet their obligations will leave them
bare and defenseless.
The only remedy is to stop falling
prices—the deadliest curse of national
life. Prices will never cease falling un
der the single gold standard. The re
storation of bimetallism by this coun
try will double the basis of our money
system. In time it will double the
stock of primary money of the world —
will stop falling prices and steadily
elevate them until they will regain
their normal relation to the volume of
debts and credits in the world.
Bimetallism will bring about the
great hope of every social reformer,
■ every believer in the advancement of
the race who realizes that the instabili
ty of prices has been the deadly foe of
our toilers and the servant of the for
eign interest —gatherer. Bimetallism
will help to bring the time when a cer
tain expenditure of human toil will
produce a certain financial result. Who
among, the great masses of our people
in the United States but what feels his
lot would be made better, his aspira
tions take new wings if he could know
in the performance of his labor what
would be the price of his product?
Is not this purpose worth the atten
tion of the political conventions yet to
be held In this year of 1896? Is not this
so great an end that all who believe in
the possibility of attaining it by the
means proposed can yield something of
their partisanship, both in conventions
and at the polls? It is in the hope that
the masses and the remaining conven
tions will have the courage and the
generosity to unite for this purpose
that we have dared offer our views to
the people of the United States, and be
cause in the past there has lacked a
rallying point for the masses who hold,
as we do, to this belief, we venture an
act trusting it will be received in the
same spirit of conciliation, concession
and hope with which we put it forth.
We have endeavored in a plain way
to set the matter before the eyes of our
fellow-citizens. We invoke the union of
all men and all parties who believe
that the time has come for the triumph
of Justice. It is anWiour when the peo
ple may speak for themselves as indi
viduals and through conventions to be
held. It is the right of every citizen
to indipate hia preferences. With this
In view we offer to the forthcoming
conventions and to the people the name
of a man for the presidency of the
United States, whose life in public and
in private represents those distin
guished virtues which adorned the days
and the deeds of the earliest time of
this republic; a return to which virtues
is requisite for the prosperity and con
tentment of the people and the perpetu
ity and commanding example of free

of the people and for the people. He is
of no section. His experience and.ser
vice, his devotion to the common Justice
and the common cause of his fellow
citizens has been as wide as the Coun
We believe that the people of the
United States have him in their hearts,
as he has had their interests and their
purposes through all the work of an ex
It is not merely as the exponent of
monetary reform that we present this
man to the people. It is true he waged
a mighty war for the rightful money of
the constitution and his name has been
identified as no other living man with
this great cause. But had his services
been less demanded and less noticed In
this direction, the people would still
have recognized in him for other labors
a statesman of the purest type. His
only poverty has been that of purse.
In all things else—in the generosities of
man to man, In kindliness of deeds for
his fellows and in the study and the
doings of a mighty career, he has been
one of the moat opulent American citi
zens of any age.
In submitting this name to the people
we re-mind them that Just a generation
ago from the heart of the boundless
West and touched by the finger of God,
there arose an emancipator who was
powerful in the work of human deliver
ance. By his wisdom with courage,
providently directed, millions were set
free and the nation kept in Its holy
union. If others shall see this oppor
tunity as we see it, If our fellow citi
zens shall see this duty as we see it;
that sublime history may be repeated
and another man — clothed in the
majesty of devotion to the race—will
be lifted to power where, by his wisdom
and courage, providently directed more
millions may be made free from chains
as galling as those of actual slavery,
and the nation may be preserved in the
unity of "its mission to the world.
