No games scheduled for today.
Forty-flve hits for a total of eighty
two bases.
That is the secret of Minneapolis'
heartrending defeat yesterday.
The West Side grounds now have
the record for professional baseball
big scores.
Forty-one runs is a lot. It not only
takes good batters, but good runners
end great endurance to play a ball
game like that.
Minneapolis was never In It at any
Btage. The locals piled up six runs
in the first inning and the most con
spicuous thing about the rest of the
game was the lassitude which charac
terized the Minneapolis players.
Perhaps you could not blame them.
O'Day was sick yesterday, or at least
Buffering from an injured ankle, and
could not umpire. Manager Comisky
appointed as a substitute umpire a
young man named Slater, who has of
ficiated as umpire in the city league.
Wilmot refused to accept him, and
packed up his bats to leave the field.
That would have forfeited the game,
but the crowd did not want the game
that way. and urged Comiskey to com
promise by having a player fiom each
side umpire. This was tried between
the same clubs once before here this
year and the St. Paul club got tha
worst of the deal. Comiskey would not
agree to it, so finally Johnston, of St.
Paul, went into the diamond.
He was roundly roasted on s^feral
occasions by the players of his awn
team, but as a matter of fact he gave
a pretty good exhibition of umpiring.
But it did not make much difference
whether he did or not. The home
team was slugging the ball, and that
was all there was to it.
St. Paul's first three to bat got first
by hook or crook, and then George
drove the ball over the fence. Burns
hit safely and Shugart put another
ball out of the lot, before the side waa
out. That made six runs for a starter,
and the only Miller to reach first was
Lally, who got there by an error of
Shugart only to be forced off imme
diately by Wilmot on a double play
from Pickett.
Glasscock was next to make a home
run. Turner contented himself with
a two-base hit, but George made the
second homer. Burns, Pickett and
Shugart in turn hit safely and the first
of them scored the tenth run.
Werden. Frank and Schriver in turn
hit the ball to Mullane and went out
at first. Lally dropped Glasscock'a
fly, and Turner made a homer. It waa
12 to nothing. Three more Millers
tried in vain to reach first.
Four singles, Spies' homer, and an
error or two gave the locals four more
In th£ fourth, making sixteen. Four of
the Millers in succession hit safely, and
as Wilmot's was for two bases, three
of them scored.
Shugart's two-base hit, followed by
Spies' single, gave the locals the only
run they made in the fifth, seventeen
In all. Kuehne hit safely and Tony
gave two men bases on balls. With
the basee full, Lally put the ball out
of the lot, and that made seven runs
for the visitors, but they were not in
It even then.
Healy gave O'Rourke his base, and
when three singles and Pickett's homer
added five runs to the score of the lo
cals. Long John concluded that it was
time he crawled from under the ava
lanche. He crawled, and young Car
ney went in. The first man went out,
but two others hit safely, and Ball gave
another a life, when Glasscock poked
one into Carney's flippers so hard that
it broke one of his thumbs, and he
could not control the ball any more.
Seven runs were the total for the
inning, making 24 to 7. Three Millers
went out before they reached first.
George's single and Burns' homer
made two more for the locals in the
Beventh, 26.
Carney hit safely and stole second.
Connors advanced him and Lally's sin
gle scored him, but no one else came
in that inning, or during the rest of the
game, so far as Minneapolis was con
cerned.
The eighth was a bad one. O'Rourke
started with a two-bagger. Glasseock
only got a single, and Turner only a
base on balls, but the next three all
made doubles, and Shugart gave Wil
mot a high fly. Spies lengthened the
list of two-baggers, and Mullane hit a
single. Then St. Paul went back to the
top of the batting list, after three more
two-baggers in succession. Carney went
to second base and Jimmy Connor
pitched. George hit an easy one and
went out.
Mullane gave the first two men up
bases on balls, but the next three went
out and the eighth was over. Com
iskey was willing to have the game
called, but as St. Paul was only twen
ty-eight runs ahead. Wilmot insisted
on playing the ninth to see how strong.
they could make it. He found out, for
Connors gave Burns a base and Pickett
drove the ball out of the lot again,
making thirty-eight runs for the game.
Bhugart and Spies hit safely, and while
Jimmy struck out Mullane, the next
three hit safely and three runs came
in, making forty-one before St. Paul
took the field again.
Mullane refused to pitch any more.

Johnßton had called three strikes on

men got high flies to the outfield, but
Shugart gave Wilmot a life, and "Per

to first. Frank, however, hit the ball
into_the air_and Burns pulled it down.

Local Club Will S peal On Open
Date There.
Thfs Is an open date in the Western league
base ball schedule. St. Paul's club will go to
Duluth to play an exhibition game with the
Zenith City constellation.
• • •
It will be observed from the account of
yesterday's game that Turner is still play
ing with St. Paul. "Buck" seems to be will
ing to play here, and Manager Comiskey is
making an effort to retain him.
• • •
In the battling records of the local club pub
lished yesterday, O'Rourke was left out. To
date Tim has mado 78 hits in 244 times at bat
an average of .320.
• • •
It is rarely, if ever before, that any one
has made as big a batting record in a single
game as that of Glasscock yesterday eight
hits In nine times at bat. It lifted Jack's
average to .420. pretty near to George, who Is
now but a shade under .426.
• • *
Jim Bunrs hurried home from the game In
time to get mixed up in & runaway acci
dent. As .Dr. Charles L. Greene, with his
wife and child, were driving home from Como
the horse was frightened by a fire cracker
which a youngster exploded at Dale street and
University avenue. The animal backed the
rig into the front end of an interurban car,
and the buggy, was carried on the fender till
it was completely smashed. None of the oc
cupants were hurt, fortunately. Burns seized
the horse during the collision, and prevented
further damage or excitement.

Glasscock's liner in the sixth gave Carney a
very bad thumb.

Three hits was the least that any member of
the local team got. Do you remember on the

Among those who were In St. Paul yester

Caustic commentora opine that the St. Paul
club ought to be in a cricket league, judging
by the number of runs.
• • •
If you see 49 runs made for 26 cents, then
you get a run for every half-cent of your
money, and that is as good a bargain salts as
any professional league in the country can
offer. Here is where the fans get thlr moneys
worth.

"AS OTHERS SEE VS."
St. Paul Ball Club Through Kansas
City Goggles.
Let the galled jade wince.
The Globe has had occasion at
times to refer to the despicable tactics
resorted to by the Kansas City team in
its play here. Few, probably, of those
who have seen this conduct supposed
that it was done as well at home as
abroad, but it seems that that kind of
work has the moral support of the Mis
souri community. The Kansas City
Times, plainly cut to the quick by the
strictures of the St. Paul press, replies
as follows:
TEAM OF PLUG UGLIES.
A Few Words About Those Who Play "Dirty
Ball."
Dirty ball ttlaylng has been a rather rare
article this year in the Western league, and
but few players now resort to the bull-dozing
tactics which were once so frequent in the
minor leagues throughout the country. Most
of the managers and directors of the clubs
have discriminated against the bullys and pro
fessional base ball mouth- scrappers and re
fused to sign them at all. But there is one
team in the Western league which was always,
and, from present appearances, will always be
constituted of the dirtiest set of Chimney Fad
dens which could possibly be collected in the
United States. The team is the St. Paul ag
gregation of "gentle Annies" and false-alarm
glass-arms, who, long ago, have seen better
days, and who, in order to win the few games
they do win, resort to all the vicious and
despicable tricks known in the history of the
national game. The team is composed of the
pa«t masters at dirty ball playing. A clean i
ball player dropped into the St. Paul team I
would be an object of pity, but It has been '
several years since a reputable player has had :
the misfortune to be connected with that team.
The St. Paul papers have criticised the Kan
sas City players on several occasions and have
referred to them as "the most disreputable
lot of misfits that ever played in St. Paul "
Take their team as constituted at present and
the idol of the press and public there is—An
tonio Mullane— the dirtiest and most disreput
able ball player who ever trod the diamond I
There is no city in the country in which this !
fellow has played that he has not disgraced I
both himself and the game also. In fact he is
the Inventor of all the dirty tactics 'which I
are now so scarce and appear to be confined
strictly to the St. Paul "has beens." On one
occasion recently while playing at the local
grounds this "Spaghetti" bruiser came very
near being escorted off the grounds on a rail
by members of the local team for acting in
♦ * xtU r£ l way of Insulting patrons in the
stand Then there is Jaok Pickett, whom all
fans here will remember as the dirtiest ball
player aver belonging to the local team His
unwarranted attack on Shortstop Sehiebeck '
who was then playing in the Western league' !
was one of the most cowardly acts ever wit- I
nessed here and the contract jumper, Pickett
was roundly hissed. Jack Glasscock. the legl
breaker and habitual spiker. is another mem
bar of this illustrious team of dead ones By
his dirty tactloe this fellow, who should have
be pensioned and left to die of old age, has put
more clean and good ball players out of the
game than all the rest of the toughs who were
ever unfortunately employed. That picture of
hard luck, Mertes, is another worthy compan
ion of the trio already mentioned and al
though not very well known In the present
league circuit, his reputation as a dirty player
preceded him and during kls short term in the
\\ estern league has sustained his record estab- j
lished elsewhere of being a would-be scrapper '
and shoulder worker. There are others in the
team, but the ones mentioned are the worst
in the business and when the St. Paul papers

dently don t look down the line of their team
and see the names of Mullane. Pickett, Mertes
and Glasscock. This four should beat any royal
. S 2.£ f d(sre putables ever held at one time.
The article is so malicious that it
betrays its venom and discounts its
sincerity. That it writer is not a lover
of base ball as a clean game is ap
parent from his billingsgate, while his
knowledge of current events is poorly
displayed by his reference to Mertes as
a picture of hard luck. If Mertes just
drafted into the Philadelphia 'club

GfIEBT PAGING ftACE
STATE FAIR IS FIGURING WITH
JOE PATCHES, GENTRY AXD
BADGE I .'
FOR A THREEr SIDED EVENT.
A GOODLY I'tKSli TO BE HUNG UP
FOR THE XIDE-WHREL
ERS.
RACING KXTEHIKS ARE CLOSED
l
And Tbey Show Good Fields la All
but Two of the Classes
Invited:
The entries to the races which will
be held under the management of the
Minnesota Agricultural society during
the state fair closed July 1 and, while
the horses have not as yet been classi
fied nor all of the entries received,
the indications point to the most suc
cessful race meeting ever held by the
society. At least 90 entries are al
ready assured in the different classes,
making eight of the twelve scheduled
events certain, with the prospect of
enriching the programme with four
special features which may attract to
St. Paul some of the speediest horses
on the racing circuit. Up to date the
entries which have been received are
composed mostly of Northwestern
horses, notably those from lowa, Wis
consin and Minnesota, and as the three
states have produced and own some of
the finest horse flesh in the country,
it is expected that their candidates
for the rich purses hung up by the
agricultural society will furnish con
tests well worth witnessing.
At the date of the closing of the
entries last year only about half as
many owners had signified their inten
tions of participating in the meet,
while the entries in each class were
only sufficient to warrant a start. This
year every class of the eight assured
will not only have the necessary
horses to start the events, but Is in
each instance sufficiently well filled to
insure a large field. It is, of course,
possible that all of the entries will not
face the starter, but even the likeli
hood of a few scratches will not in
terfere with the general interest of
the" races in the face of so many en
tries.
No entries were made in the free-for
all pace nor in the 2:12 pacing class.
These events were arranged for horses
throughout the Northwest which have
since been attracted to the national
circuit meets and as a result remain j
unfilled. Instead, however, of tending
to detract from the high quality of
races which will take place at the fair
grounds it is quite likely that inability
to fill these classes will result in the
arrangement of special purses of suf
ficient value to tempt the presence of
the fastesc horses before the racing
public to-day. Nothing definite has
yet have decided upon, but the state
fair management is seriously consid
ering the question of making a bid for
a race between the three fastest pacers
in this country, namely, John R. Gen
try, Joe Patchen and Badge, the
speeder from Rochester, Minn., who is
at present showing such great form
in competition with the world beaters
on Eastern tracks. If the race is ar
ranged it will undoubtedly prove one
of the best contests of thoroughbreds
ever seen in the West.
In view of the fact that the time for
the Fair is fast approaching active
preparations are being commenced on
the buildings and grounds that they
may be ready in ample time for oc
cupancy. A large crew of workmen
are already at work on the main build
ing which is in process of thorough re- j
modeling and when finished will In all j
respects be equal to a new structure. |
An entire new floor is taking the place
of the old ground work and the plans
are being so altered as to permit the
utilization of considerable space which
has heretofore been unoccupied. The
old dining hall, which was for the first
time last year used as a woman's buil
ding, is also undergoing repairs a.n<l
will in the future be entirely devoted
to the womens* exhibits!
The space under the grand stand,
familiarly known as the "betting ring,"
haa at last been pressed into service
and will this year contain, In addition
to the over flow or county exhibits,
the exhibitions from .the Northwestern
states. Four of these states, Montana,
South Dakota, Oregon, and Washing
ton have already 'engaged space for
their products and applications are on
file from others whicft makes this fea
ture of the Fair one.futl of interesting j
promise.
The plan of arranging for exhibits by
these states is Indirectly the outgrowth
of the Northwestern Immigration as
sociation. State immigration associ
ations have been formed throughout
the different states and through the
efforts of the fair management, work
ing through the secretary of the gen
eral association, have induced their
states to exhibit at Minnesota's fair,
one of the chief reason* being the
splendid opportunity of showing their
resources to the large number of vis
itors from all parts of the -country
who will be in St. Paul during the G.
A. R. encampment who will also visit
the Fair.
Secretary Randall, of the State Ag
ricultural society, has recently received
a communication from the Page Woven |

Yale Will Meet Leanden in the
Preliminary Heat.
HENLEY-ON-THE-THAMEB, July B.— Thlt
has been a quiet day amoug the oarsmen and i
has been spent in somewhat weary expectancy
and waiting for the time to pass. Yale men
a« well as all other crews, took a complete
re«t. Most of the Yale crew remained at
their quarters at Marsh Mill house the live
long day.
The racing will begin on Tuesday at 11 -30
o'clock in the morning, when E. Biddlngton i
of the Thames Rowing club, and R. K.
Beaumont, of Burton-on-the-Trent, will row

At 12:30 o'clock the preliminary heat of the
eight-oared race for the Grand Challenge cup
Is scheduled between tin London Rowing
club and First Trinity, Cambridge.
New College, Oxford and Trinity Hall, Cam
bridge, will row their preliminary heat for
the Orand Challenge cup at 1 o'clock.
At 2 o'clock the contest between the Lean
der crew and the Yale crew which will
decide whether Yale Is to appear in the
second round of the race. If Yale wing the
first heat she will have to row the second
heat with the victor as between New College
and Trinity Hall. It is expected that this will
be New College, so that Yale will have to
meet the two crews that are considered most
to be feared before the final events.
The Standard thinks that the Yale crew
has improved so much that the result of the
race for the grand challenge cup is an open
question.
In its comment upon the Henly regatta
Sporting Life says: It is a great pity that
Yale and Leander were drawn together for
the first heat. It will rob the regatta of a
deal of interest and it means that the Amer
icans will probably be defeated in the first
round.
The Sportsman expresses similar regret
over the drawing, but adds: "Should the
wind be anything like as strong as it was
today the Americans ought to beat Leander.
Should the wind drop, however, they will
stand little chance."
An editorial in the Dally Telegraph on the
Henley regatta contains congratulations to
the Yale men for their modesty and their
willingness to take hints from English oars
men. "It Is a pity," the Daily Telegraph
says, "that they have drawn Leander. Many
Englishmen honestly wish them success."
AMERICANS SHOW IP WELL.
Klser and Murphy Capture Heati In
the Paris Grand Prix.
PARIS, July s.— The first heats In the
Grand Prix of the great Paris bicycle tour
nament were run off to-day, and fully 15,000
people were in attendance. Seven different
countries were strongly represented among
the competitors. The quality of the French
riders was a disappointment, while the heats
for the Grand Prix revealed wonderful form
by the foreigners, especially the Americans,
whoss waning reputation was fully re-estab
lished by the day's events. Kiser, to tfie
general surprise, defeated Jacquelin, the
French champion, in the first heat by a
wheel after a grand struggle. Kiser led from
the start, Jacquelin following his usual tac
tics, left the lot at the last lap and gained
five lengths. Klser rushed after him and
gained at every stroke, covering the quarter
mile in 27 3-5 seconds.
Murphy got a bad position for the home
stretch and came third in this heat.
In the handicap Kiser was heavily handi
capped. He, however, overtook the limit man,
Oily, but lost by a few inches.
Murphy, in his heat, overtook and defeated
the lot.
The Grand Prix is one of the chief bicycling |
events in the European cycling world every !
year. It is run under the auspices of the I
Press club, and the proceeds go to the poor
of the city.
Among the prizes to be competed for during
the tournament is a magnificent cup, pre
sented by Baron Rothschild.

of the tents and churches the citizens
of Washington, particularly the mer
chants, have entered into the spirit
of the convention and joined in making
ing the city attractive by liberal deco
rations of their homes and places of
business. Shop windows are bright
with convention colors, shields and
othre devices in colors bearing the
word "Welcome" are prominently dis
played and fronts of stores and build
ings are draped. The government au
thorities have lent their assistance in
decorating the public parks with ap
propriate foliage designs which include
the working out on plants and flowers
of the familiar "C. E." monogram
combinations of the letters "Y. P. S.
C. E.," the convention flag in colors
and other devices with scroll work.
A prominent feature of this year's
convention will be the great chorus of
about 4,000 voices, which has been In
training a long time for the gathering.
The programme committee has had in
mind the bicyclists who attend the con
vention and for them a number of runs
to interesting points in the vicinity I
have been arranged. The programme
for the meetings of the convention is
about completed. In general, it con

missionary rallies, and an informal re- I
ception to all officers of the state, terri
torial and provincial endeavor unions

hostile to the Hawaiian republic, and that
many people are of the opinion that he is In

disappointing to the American residents of
