hard-hitters that Comiskey is troup

tered around him merrily.
McGill did not get the fielding sup
port that he was entitled to in the early
part of the game, but, as it turned
out, of course, there is no occasion to
dwell long on that.
Mcßride took O'Rourke's place as a
stopper for pitched balls at the open
ing of the game, and he stayed at first
until Preston forced him out. Nyctf
allowed four to go by him without mo
lesting them at all, and, when Parrott
drove the ball straight through the dia
mond at a break-neck velocity, Preston
scored from second. Truby let George
get to first base without warrant of
law, but this error was not costly, as
Glasscock put the ball at Barnett, and
a double play ended the inning.
McGill gave McVicker four, and Con
naughton wanted to sacrifice, but he
eat the ball to first. Lake tried the
rick, and he went out. Truby
gave Glasscock a fly, and Jack Car
ney did not get the ball out of the

with a safe one that looked like a score

The locals went one, two, three, and
then the Kansas City aggregation
opened their specialty programme with
a real old Irish come-all-ye, and they
aii came. It was Jimmy Bannon' s
turn to open the inning, and, when
Jimmy Bannon stepped to the nlate, the
merry sunlight daneod on his glistening
hair, and sang "Silver Threads Amon t r
the Gold." But, when you got a good
look at Jimmy, it was about an eveii
break whether he'd sing "Mavour

high ball, however, just as hard as

brother, with a luxuriant growth ot

it looked as though it really belonged
to the man with the longer legs, but
the big one let the little one have it,
and then neither of them got it. Reilly
sacrificed. Barnett gave Glasscock a
high foul, but McVicker again got his
eye in on the ball, and there were two
runs in. Connaughton hit a long three
bagger back of Parrott's garden patch,

The Blues took a fresh start. Shu
gart let Truby open at first without
any equity in the place at all. Carney
wanted to sacrifice. Glasscock got the
ball, but McGill did not get to the
base. It was a good thing, and Jimmy

Barmon pushed it along. Again Glass
cock got the bail, and this time it was
Nyce who did not get to the base. That
gave them full bases and none out.
T. Bannon popped up an infield fly, and
that relieved it somewhat, for Shugart
took Reilly's offspring down the line
for a double play.
Then it began to get good. Nyce
opened the sixth with a two-bagger
and the 500 people there began to
brace. Parrott advanced him on a.
lively one to Reilly. George waited for
four. Glasscock forced George out, and
one of the Bannons took care of Shu
gart's fly before Nyce could score.
McGill g-ave Barnett a base. Preston
gave McVicker one, and then McGill
handed one to Connaughton. Again
were three on bases with none out, and
the bleachers wondered whether the
Saints would pull off another mlracfe
or not. Lake hit to center and Mcßride
made a nice catch. Barnett came
home. Truby followed Lake's hint and
this time Mcßride could not quite take
it, dropping the ball after getting it.
Parrott got the next one, but in the
meantime the runs had piled up three,
and it was six to one when Bannon
Jay gave Preston a fly.
Only three innings left, too. Barnett
let down a little, and Spies df^w a base
on balls. McGill and Mcßride went
out, and then Barnett handed out two
more bases. Parrott was the next man
and maybe he did not get a hand.
Well, somebody clapped his hands, and
Barnett began to shake the bottle for
it was pretty near time to take his
medicine. Parrott missed the first one
and Barnett gained a pound and a half.
Then Tacks slid the bat under the next
one for a foul tip. But on the third
shift he spilt a lot of dismay all over
the Kansas City bench, for that ball
went sailing, sailing, over the bound
ing main, and the main !n this case
was some distance back of the precinct
in which Jimmy Bannon was running
the primaries. To the half starved
local enthusiasts this hit was like the
dawning of a new era, a momentary
glance through the portals of Elysium,
but George only got a high one into
McVicker's play house, and the locals
had to wait for Glasseock. Shugart and
Spies to go over into the Hesperides
and gather a lot of golden apples in the
eighth. Kansas City's half was only
prolonged a moment by Reilly's scratch
single Shugart's way and when Glass
cock cam* to the plate, there was pride
in Pebble's hearing, there was fire In
both his eyes. If that ball had been
ice, the glacial period would have
reached half way across the bicycle
track. Then Shugart tried to knock
the cover -off the ball, and tied the
score with a fine home run. There
was net much wind, but the ball had
the benefit of what little there was
and there was a late supper in the
Bannon household if mother waited for
Jimmy to come back from where that
bail went. Spies was sore. He had not
be.'-n permitted to get in the game to
any great extent, up to that time, not
even having a fielding chance to make

: an error, and he decided that If Shu
gart could do that, it must be easy.
So he picked out a capital I on the
summer theater fence and tried to
blacken it. The ball did not go quite
that far, but it went far enough for
Spies to bring in the run which gave
the locals the lead. Barnett decided it
would be about, as cheap to give these
hard hitters bases on balls, so he gave
two. Preston hit a sharp one through
ConnaU'ghton's oleomargarine digits,
and a passed ball sent Mcßride to
third, where he scored on Nyce's fly to
It looked bad for the locals when Par

GOSSIP OF THE GAME.
Incidents of the See-Sitvr Contest of
Kansas City and St. Paul will play their
second game this afternoon at 3:45 at Lex
ington park. The opposing pitchers will
probably be Phyle and Abbey. The latter
has been with Washington latterly, and has
been doing some good work for the Kaws.
Jimmy Manning dees not like Lally any
better than Connie Mack did.
Tomorrow ladies will be admitted free.
The flies that Mcßride and Parrott dropped
were hard ones, and not at all discreditable
to their standing. •■ >■;.
* * *
Preston's first appearance at third was
watched with a great deal of interest, and
with nine fielding chances, only one of them
an error, a stolen base, etc., he can be said
to have made a fine start.
* * «
If Parrott keeps up his batting streak he
will have the long-hit record beaten by the
Fourth of July.
* * «
Fred Lake had his eyes open when Glass
cock carried the ball to the bench after Lally
called Fred out in the fourth. It appeared
as though the catcher was devoting his en
tire attention to the umpire, whom he was
roasting ad lib, but Lake evidently watched
the ball, for when he told Lally that a man
in a brown suit had the ball, and Lally
frisked the man with the brown suit and
found it. it looked as though Lake had Wash
ington Irving Bishop's game pretty pat.
* * ♦
Com'skey's clock is about five minutes fast.
The street cars ran right up to the gate
yesterday, and everybody expressed pleasure
at the change.
* * *
It will probably be a long time before two
home runs by two batsmen in succession are
again seen at Lexington park. The hits of
Shugart and Spies were b?auties.
* * #
Nyce's error came pretty near losing the
game in the ninth. It was followed immedi
ately by Reilly's three-base drive to center.
If Reilly had not been coached to remain at
third he could probably have made the circle
and tied the score.
Not all of the errors made by St. Paul are
in the score sheet. For instance, in the
fourth inning the Cowboys scored three runs,
but they should really have been blanked.
After Jim Bannon had hit safely, Tim Ban
non popped up a fly, which would have been
easy for Parrott, but Shugart was coached
to get the ball and failed. With two out, a
little hitting followed, and the Blues took
* * *
The credit of winning the game really be
longs to "Tacks" Parrott. In the seventh
inning, with two out and three on bases, he
smashed the leather for three sacks and
cleared the bases.
* * *
The oniy hits made off Barrett for six
innings were Parrott's single in the first and
Nyce's double in the sixth. The three hits
in the eighth sent around four runs.
* * *
It is mighty seldom that a first baseman
puts out seventeen men in a game. Glass
cock did tho trick yesterday without a skip.
* * *
No two catchers ever had less work to do
than Spies and Lake. The former got one
assist and the latter one put-out 1h the whole
* « •
Connaughton's work at short is sloppy, but
* * *
McGill's legs appear to be so short that he
has great difficulty in reaching first when
Glasscock is taking a ground ball. He failed
to reach first in time to catch either Carney
or Jim Bannon in the fifth.
The fifth was a great inning for the visi
tors. Trubey got his base on an error, and
Carney and Jim Bannon on little infield
hits before anybody was out. Tim Bannon
popped up a fly and Reilly and Jim Bannon
were doubled out before anybody tallied.
* • •
The Blues had very much better luck in
the sixth, When, without making the sign of
a hit. they scored three times. Barnett drew
a base on balls. Preston failed to do any
thing wir.h McVicker's grounder, Connaughton
drew a base, and Mcßride muffed Trubey'a
fly after a long run.
* ♦ *
The Kansas City team is not so strong as
that which it brought hero last year. It is
especially weak in pitchers. Carney is better
at first than Klusman, but the rest of the
infield is not so good as it was last year, and
it is a question whether the outfield is any
better than the outfielders of 1596.
* * *
Friday is the first day on which the ladie3
will be admitted free. Turn out, girls, and
fill the grand stand.
* * *
The gate at the southeast corner of the
grounds should be kept open. It would save
the hill people a walk of nearly half a mile.

JONES TIItEID IN* THE SEVENTH.
Sew Twlrler olt,,jtlMs Jlr<\>«-r» Tre-
Mt-iitH the Miller* a Game.
The few fans who journeyed to Nic
ollet park in Minneapolis yesterday
afternoon saw a game of ball such as is
usually seen only toward the end of
the season, when the pennant is but
a short way off, and every one is in it,
not for the filthy lucre, but for a little
glory on the side.
If Mr. Jones, the gentleman who
walked from San Francisco to the
abode of Connie Mack, thereby reliev
ing himself of all surplus flesh, had not
fallen down in the seventh inning, the
Millers and the Brewers might nave
been battling yet, if they, like oats,
could see in the dark. At the end of
the sixth inning Mr. Jones had allowed
the local team but four hits, three of
which were in the first inning, and ;t
looked very much as though both sides
were doomed to s4iut-outs until dark
ness came. In the seventh, howevr,
the gentlemen from San Francisco went
to pieces, and the end was no longer
The Millers started out in the first
inning something after the manner in
which they rubbed it into Kansas City
the first four games with the Blues.
Artie Ball wanted to walk, but Mr.
Jones couldn't see it that way, and
the shortstop had to strike. He dropped
one out at the feet of Daly and was
thrown out at first. Lally was weak
and rolled one to Mr. Delehanty, who
threw to Stafford. Stafford let it
through him, and Lally was safe on
first, but stayed there only a ir.ement,
getting to second on Speer's passed bail.
Cartridge singled, and Lally came hora>:
at a 10y 2 -second round- the base gait.
Miller drove one into the left field
for one base, and Partridge went to
se-oond. Pickett attempted to sacri
fice, Miller reached second on Daly's
failure to hold the ball from Jones,
and Pickett, therefore, reached first
on a fielder's choice. This left the
bases full, and the fans were happy.
Cassidy, who is hitting pretty regu
larly, batted out '& single, and Par
tridge and Miller trotted over the plate.
Pickett was caught trying to steal
third, Kuehne struck out and the sid^
was retired with three runs.
In the first inning Mack's men went
out in one, two, three; order. In the
second Weaver was . given his base,
but was caught trying to purloin the
second bag, when Daly sacrificed, and
the latter reached firsts Mr. Stafford
also walked, and Daly went to second.
Myers hammered out a single and
brought Daly home and was caught
himself by Ball, when he attempted
to make his hit a two-bagger. Speer
reached first on Ball's error and went
to third on Jones' single, and Stafford
came home. Delahanty flied out to
Partridge, and the side was retired
with two runs. In the third inning the
Brewers scored one on Kuehne's error,
a single by Daly and a double by Staf
ford. After that they .didn't get within
a mile of a run.
From the first to the seventh inning
Jones only allowed the Millers one hit,
and toy baloons loomed up across the
field on the big brack board with a
regularity tending- t6 ; brlß^ a tear Jo
the eye of the enthusiastic fan.' But
Mr. Jones was once a fan himself and
he felt for the downcast horde in the
grand stand and on the bleachers. He
didn't want to have any one go away
with the idea that he wasn't a good
fellow, so when Mr. Figgemeier came
to bat in the beginning of the seventh
there was another little Anson testi
monial, and Figgie didn't have to run
to first. Again Mr. Jones played to
the fans in refusing to pick up Artie
Ball's sacrifice before the shortstop
had reached first, and that the kind
ness of the San Francisco gentleman
should not be overlooked the scorers
left a blank space in the error column
opposite his name. Lally was anxious
to see just how far Mr. Jones would go
and tried another sacrifice, and once
more the Brewers' star twirler fell
from grace, and Artie Ball was on his
way to second when Lally got to first,
Myers recovered the ball and tried to
catch Artie at first, but Daly wouldn't
have it and dropped the ball, and Artie
was safe home. Partridge waited for
a good one, but couldn't do more than
single, and Ball came home and Laliy
went to second. Miller sacrificed from
Jones to Stafford, and two Millers
adorned the second and third bases.
Pickett was out for all there was in
it. and to show Mr. Jones that he was
not the only one hammered out a sin
gle, and Lally and Partridge ambled
home. Mr. Jones was mad and struck
out Cassidy, and Kueiine retired the
side by failing to reach first on an easy
one to Jones.
In the eighth the Millers scored one,
their only earned run, on Ball's single
and Lally's three-bagger, the only one
of the day and a beauty. In the ninth
one more was added to the score by
Miller's double, and singles by Miller,
Kuehne and Moran. The score:

PITTSBURG, Pa., May s.— The Pirates and
Colonels played two games and split even on
ths clay. Hawby's m serable work was respon
sible for the Joss of the first game. When
Hastings relieved him, the handicap was too
big to overcome. Hemming was taken out
in the third inning because the home team
was hitting him hard. The second game was
well played. Both pitchers had their oppon
ents guessing most of the time. Attendance,
5.5C0. Score of first game:

BROOKLYN, N. V., May s.— Superb pich
ing by Kennedy, brilliant work by the field
ers and ability to hit Pond at opportune mo
ments contributed to a victory for Brooklyn
today. The heavy hitting Orioles could only
land five time 3on Kennedy's curves^ and
had it not been for Shindle's error in the
ninth, the one run scored in that inning by
Baltimore would not have been made. Score:

the Colts able to hit Donohue to advantage,
while the Browns bunched their hits in
four different inn-ings, finally winning out

both sides was miserable, and the game
throughout uninteresting. Attendance, 3,200.

MACALESTEtt \VI\S EASILY.
Defeats the Central High School l»y
a Score of 2O to 7.
Macalester c:l'.eg3 opened its ball season yes
terday in a rather one-sided contest with the
Central high school. Throughout the whole
contest the heavy hitters of the college proved
tco much for the high school's pitchers aud
hit them at will. The feature of the game was I
the pitching of Edson, of the Macalesters. |
He had the high school aggregation at his j
mercy and succeeded in making e'.even of
their number fan the air. The following
shows how the teams lined up:

LEXINGTON, Ky., May s.— The twenty
round fight between Johnny Van Heest, of
Ashland, Wis., and George Stout, o.f Cincin- ,
natl, took place here tonight, under the |
auspices of the Navarre Athletic club, of this I
city. Van Heest weighed in at 127 V; pounds, j
and Stout at 129% pounds. George Siler acted j
as referee. At first Stout seemed to have it ;
a'l his own way; that is he ca.me out of the
rounds fresher than his antagonist. Neither !
dr^a't very heavy blows. Van Heest struck i
out from the shoulder, while Heest resorted 1
to upporcu'ts. Stout's friends believed that ,
ha would be the winner until the close of \
the thirteenth round, when the knock-down \
blow on the chin from Van Ileest's left was
delivered. Stout got up within ten seconds,
groggy. Van Heest knocked him down again
with a left and a right in the face. The
gong postponed the real knockout until the
fourteenth round. One blo-.v at the very be- j
ginning of the fourteenth floored Stout a.nd I
lift him unconscious.

MAJOR IX FIFTEBX DAYS.
One of tbe Quickest Promotions on
Fifteen days ago a man named
Doug-las appeared at Fort Sneliing as
a recruit in Company D. Third Infan
try. He was assigned a room by him
self in company quarters, but didn't
appear in the company's ranks at any
time. He was dressed at all times
in civilian's clothes, and has spent
much time enjoying himself driving a
horse and buggy. He was friendly
with all the members of the company
who had become acquainted with him.
but his curves were more than they
could sovle. He said he had entered
the army for the express purpose of
studying and posting- himself for a
corromlssion as lieutenant. It was said
that he had considerable experience as
an officer in the Cuban army under
Gen. Maceo. It was also handed
around quietly that he was a nephew
of Secretary Sherman, which seemed
to explain " the latitude he enjoyed.
Yesterday he informed his fellow pri
vates that he had just received an ap
pointment on the staff of the army
paymaster for the department of Da
kota with the rank and title of major.
This completed the surprise, and last
nig-ht the members of Company D had
little else to discuss that the rare good
fortune of Maj. Douglas. They wore
all pleased with his promotion, a? ho
had become popular even in the fifteen
days of preparatory service.
As no mention of any such appoint
ment or promotion had been sent, out
from Washington yesterday as that of
Maj. Douglas, a reporter for the
Globe called at the Aberdeen last
night to learn something more about
it from the department paymaster.
That gentleman had, however, retire.!
and "could not be disturbed."
