It remained for the leaders and the
tail-enders in the Western league race
t,, play one of the closest games of
• he season thus far at Lexington park
yesterday. The team that has been
beaten by all the Eastern teams held
down the team that has beaten two
of the Westerners badly and broken
even with the third, for eight long
innings, and had two of the Apostles
out of it in the ninth before Jack
Glasscock opened up a line of five base
hits, the first bombardment the
Apostles had been able to give Scott,
Git-nalvin's new find.
In spite of the impending storm,
nearly 700 fans took a chance on a
ducking and rode to the scene of the
conflict. It Is apparent that in the
present fever of base ball interest in |
the city where the leaders live, there
are about 700 people who would go
to see a game if it was played on
an Ice track with the pitchers in furs.
"Brownie" Foreman, the muoh-tout
ed ex-leaguer, was first thrust against
the Saints, but he could not find the
l>late any better than the coroner could
the girl who put kerosene in the
kitchen fire, and two Innings had not
yet been ushered into the alcoves ot
the past when Brownie was black and
l-lue from the knocking he received at
the hands of his fellow players.
Meßride was the only one to get a
fcase on balls until after Mullane
sacrificed, and Ganzel muffed Roars
throw on Nyce. The Foreman issued
two more trip passes, and the score

Slagle, who plays center field in an
Eton jacket and hair like an English
actor, hit Fricken for a hard one, and
the wise acres in the stands "allowed

and the song ought to be added to hia
ltpertory at once. But Roat gave
Glasscock a fly and Campau watched
the ball cut the plate three times, witn
curves like spaghetti and hot as pepper
sauce. The runner stole second, and
Glenalvin hit a safe one. Gettinger hit
to Nyce, and the side should have
been out, but Nyce threw the ball into
the cycle track, and when the relations
of all parties had been adjusted witn
out acrimony, two runs were in and
Gt-ttinger was on third. Ganzel sent
Wcßride an airship, and the gift was
Spies was hit by a pitched ball, but
Umpire Manassau would not allow him
to go to first for the reason, he said,
that Spies did not get out of the way
of the ball. This was perfectly ap
parent to the most obtuse individual,
■because, forsooth, had he gotten out
of the way, the ball would not have hit
him. Manassau, who walked from the
Pacific coast to Minneapolis two yfars
ago to play three days in right field
in John Barnes' band box, demon
strated that while Spies might oi>
n;i?ht not have tried to get out of the
way of the ball, he should hereafter
make a more artistic bluff at getting
out uf the course of the sphere. After
Spies sent a fly to Gettinger, and
Fric-ken waited for four, Mcßride
forced Fricken out at second, and
Glenalvin forced Foreman out at once.
Scott then went in and no more dam
ape was done. Shugart gave Hatfield
a. life, but he did not score, the next
three being unable to bat with any
Four of Scott's poorest gave George
privileges, and Glasseock's single that

A third time Meßride went to first
without violent exertion, and then

in the meantime Meßride was in a

the ball. Glenalvin then got it to sec

struck out, but Roat's hit sent in two
and tied the score.
The fifth was short, only three on a
side batting. Parrott reached first on
Roat's fumble Snug-art advanced him
one. Spies hit to Roat and went out
at first and Ganzel threw to Buckley
as Parrott tried to score on the play.
The visitors did not reach first at all.
Fricken waited Scott out, and Me-
Bride hit safely.before any one was out.
but the next three went up and out
before any one scored.
Hatfield hit in the air and Parrott
was under it. Nyce made a pretty stop
on Buckley and then spoiled it by a bad
throw that gave Scott a life. Slagle
met the ball fairly and it looked as
though the strangers would be in the
lead very shortly, but the pace was too
fast for Roat, who merely gave Me-
Bride a high one, and those are easy
Glasscock poked one through Ganzel
at a speedy clip and then tried to steal
second. He slid, but Roat reached for
him and Manassau said that Jack was
out. Jack said he was not and a de
bate that promised to be long and elo
quent on one side, was terminated by
Manassau tendering to Glascock the
information that the next time he
opened his head he would be put out
of the game. Parrott hit a rakish fly
in front of Slagle, and the baill bounded
badly for him giving Tacks second
but the next two batsmen failed to
connect. Grand Rapids did not get the
ball out of the infield. Fricken getting
it once and Nyce the two other oc
Two Saints were out again when
Mullane hit safely and Buckley threw
him out on a trial for second. Ganzel
flew out to Glasscock on a foul. Hat
field hit to Shugart, who juggled the
ball a few times and then realized that
it was everlastingly too late. Hatfleld
then wanted to steal second, but every
time he would try Bqckley would foul
the ball and Gil would have to go back.
Finally, however, he decided to get
there if he could, before Buckley got
a chance at the ball, and Fricken, Shu
gart and Glasscock pinned him in be
tween the two bases. It was unfortu
nate for the visitors, as Buckley then
drove the ball out for two sacks of
sawdust, which would, no doubt, have
scored Hatfield. Scott hit a likely one
to Nyce, which bounded in the runway
between first and second and the side
There was just one inning to come
and the first run meant much. Nyce
hit a sharp one to Roat, who made a
brilliant stop and threw his opponent
out at first. George tried to drive one
through Glenalvin but the guards pre
vented this and George, too, w^as out.
Glasscock hit one between Hatfield and
Roat, the former playing in. Roat got
it in one hand, but In his recovery he
lost just the time necessary for the
veteran to reach first, and when Par
rott dropped one into right field a short
distance back of the lines, It looked
much more hopeful for the Saints.
Shugart hit another hot one to Roat,
who finally reached it. In spite of the
fact that Shugart was near first then,
Roat threw, and he threw hurriedly
and high, the result being two runs for
the locals, while Shugart went to sec
ond. Spies and Fricken kept up the
hitting making five singles in all and
driving in another run. Fricken being
caught between first and second, try
ing to stretch his single into two bases
on Campau's throw to Hatfield.
Slagle gave George a fly, and Shu
gart fielded Roat's ball handily.
Trouble brewed, however, when Camp
au hit a high one and Glasscock, Nyce
and George finally went after it. The
other two finally left it to Nyce, and
he had it in his hands, but muffed it.
Glenalvin hit a hot one which bounded
over Nyce's shoulder, and a home run
would have tied the score, but Get
tinger was not equal to the emergency
and his grounder near second base
forced Glenalvin off into the cold, cold

IXDER THE CKAIUPION FLAG.
The Ex-Champions Have Fan With
The East and the West have come together
a "f l uf eSU)t proves beyond the shadow of
a doubt that among those individuals who did
not fo low Horace Greeley's advice there are
several ball players. The gentlemen referred
to may have started out with the determina
tion of heeding Greeley's -words, but if they
did, they stopped off at Indlana'polis on their
way to the land of promise. After having
■been residents of the city in question for a
sufficient length of time to gain them the
title of Hoosiers, they came to Minneapolis
Their arrival here yesterday morning was not
marked with any particular ceremonies. Th°re
were no brass bands to meet them, and they
paid their own bus fare to their hotel. A
good square meal was partaken of, and then
tney journeyed out to Nisollet park. Th°re
they committed an act which will be remem
bered long by the Minneapolis fans, and which
will a long time remain unforghren.
It was a battle of the champions, those ol
1895 and those of 1896, and the earlier cham
pions, beneath the folds of the emblem of the
victories cf th 6 later champions, proved vic
torious. They were not satisfied with an
-ordinary win, but must needs shut the Mil
lers : out, ajid with, .Mr. Phillips in the box

park will st!IT remain to tell the tale of
the downfall of the Jllllers.
For five innings no prettier game was ever
seen in Minneapolis. Up until the beginning
of tho sixth, it looked as though the one run
s-cored by the Hoosiers in the fourth waa
to remain the only run of the game Three
pretty double plays, two by the Hoosiers and
one by the Millers, were the features of the
first two innings. In these five innings
Phillips had been found five times, a three
bagger, a double and three singles, while off
of Carney but four hits had been secured a
three-bagger, a two-bagger and two singles.
The Hoosiers' two big hits came in the fourth,
and it was then they scored their one run.
Carney was pitching in first-class form, and
no pitcher in the Western league ever fielded
his position better than did he. He made
three circus stops, and caught two men on
that alleged balk of his, which Is not quite
open enough to warrant an umpire in call-
Ing him down. The five assists and two put
outs to his credit are the best evidence of
his work in the fie dng line. The fans thought
that he was going to square himself for his
poor work of late, and it certainly looked that
way until thore came another one of those
ratal sixth Innings, followed by another fatal
seventh. Two doubles, a home run and a sin
gle and a poor throw by Ball to Cassidy broke
the spell and when the third Hoosier went out
in the sixta the score stood 5 to 0 In their

as they would the Millers could not ' brine

they were, worth in an effort to prevent a
shut out. the Ilooslers eo«i!dn't see it that
way. After th 9 fourth Inning Phillips only
allowed the Millers two hits.
The feature cf the game was McFarland's

under ordinary circumstances, have been good
for three buses. McFarland went after it,
but no nnn hjft^an Idea he would be able
to get It. He was running with the ball
away down toward the? corner of the field.
Wh^n he got within gun shot of It he jumped,
with his back still to the diamond, and when
he lit on his feet again he turned around to
throw. A* soon as those in the fe>and stand
and bleachbrs realized that he had got it,
forgetful of the fact that the hit was almost
the last hope of preventing a shut out for tag
Millers, they applauded loud and long, and
when Mac walked in from the field he was
obliged to doff his cap In recognition of the
cheers and handclapplng. Tt was perhaps the
most sensational catch ever 6eeu on NlcoUet
Another feature of the game wac the umpir
ing. Bud Lally, Graves et al., weie engaged
elsewhere and no one turned up when the
game was called. Moran and Frank Foreman
were chosen to do the work, and for the
first time this season yesterday's game was
not marked with the usual kicking. On but
one or two occasions did the fans or players
take any exception to the decisions and, if Dan
Johnson will keep his alleged umpires away
from Minneapolis and let us have players to
do the work, some day he can come to Min
neapolis and be mayor. Moran umpired for
only six innings, when he was put in to
each, Eddie Boyle again injuring his finger
and going out of the game. Figgemeler
went in In Moran's place, and, although not
quite up to the standard of the catcher-um
pire, was a very big improvement over those
who are paid to do the work. The score:

That Is the Programme Proposed
St. Paul and Grand Rapids will play their
second game for the present season at Lex
ington park this afternoon, beginning at
1 3-45 as usual. Reidy will be in the box for
the visitors, and it is expected that Isbell,
the North Branch phenomenon, will be pitted
against the travelers by Manager Oomiskey.

pitchers acquitted themselves with credit.

A Dcs Molnes fan pays the following tribute
to James F. Burke, formerly of the St. Paul
Picketts. now known as the "kid" catcher of
the Western association: "He is a gentleman
at heart, and puts his whole soul in the
game, always willing to work. He has taken
part in seven games, and his work has been
gilt-edged. He has a fielding average of 1,000;
and is batting at a clip of .384, and if he
keeps up this gait he will be in the front
rank when the season closes. He is consid
ered one of the best backstops in the asso
ciation. This will no doubt be pleasing to
his many St. Paul friends, as he was a mem
ber of the St. Paul Pickstt team. It would
be well for the St. Paul management to keep
aai eagle eye on the Sit. Paul youngster and
push him along, as he no doubt is a find.
He has a host of friends here who would like
to see him make headway at once."

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., May 18.—
The mu-oh-advertised "boxing carni
val." under the auspices of the Olympic
Athletic club, which recently withdrew
from the American Amateur Athletic
union, to enable its management to
go Into the prize fighting business for
revenue, was not the success confident
ly predicted. The club, which claims to
"be the only "pure" athletic club on the
coast, counted on the support of its
2,000 or more members to lend their
patronage to .its enterprise, but in this
it was disappointed. It had been re
peatedly announced that nothing but a
square and gentlemanly contest woulc
be allowed; that the men had been
"tried out" and found "to be in per
[ feet condition, filling all the require
i ments of the agreement," and yet at
the very beginning one of the men
advertised as a star contestant,
brought on from New York, weighed
ten pounds over the weight agreed
Notwithstanding this big advantage
of Leonard over Gans, the colored boy
agreed to go on with the fight. When
the men were called to the center of
the ring for the customary handshake,
as an earnest of the absence of all ill
feeling in their coming bout, Leonard
violated all rules and ethics of the
prize ring and deliberately spat in his
opponent's face. There was an angry
demonstration from the crowd, which
did not subside for a minute, but Gans
kept cool and seemed satisfied to await
his opportunity for wiping out the in
sult. The fight then began with both
men sparring cautiously. Gans took
the lead from the start and despite the
deliberate fouls of his opponent, kept
Ms head all through, several times
having his man "going" when the gong
announced the end of a round. The
fight was good and fast to the end
and the referee properly gave the deci
sion to Gans.
In the bantam weight contest, whicn
was the opening event, Lawler was
given the decision over Reilly in the
first round. When the twenty-round
bout between Joe Gans, of Baltimore,
and Mtke Leonard was called, the lat
ter declared overweight and, although
all bets were declared off, Gans de
clared his readiness to fight and the
men went on. During the first few
rounds LeonaTd used his overweight
unfairly, fighting roughly and some
what foul with considerable clinching.
Gans held his own with much aggres
sive work and in the ninth round set
a pace which proved too fast for
Ltonard. In the tenth and eleventh
rounds Gans fought Leonard all over
the ring and had him going when the
gong sounded. In the twelfth Leon
ard's ten pounds overweight told In
his favor. .SThe crowd called to Gans
to claim a foul, which had been pre
viously cohVmitted by Leonard, but
the colored :la~d kept on fighting.
At the end of the fifteenth round both
men were weak and fighting cautiously with
Gans In the lead, but lacking the strength
to put his man out. At the end of the
twentieth round the referee declared Gans the
When the men stood up for the next event,
Jeffries <ooked to be in much the better con
dition. The fight began with Jeffries ag
gressive. Jeffries landed a left on the face
and tried with right, but Baker ducked clev
erly, keeping out of the way of the big fel
low. In the second round Jeffries landed
a hard left on Baker's wind. Baker retaliating
with a right on the neck. Jeffries clinched
and struck in the clinch, for which he was
hissed. Jeffries tried with his left, but
Baker ducked and clinched. Jeffries struck
in the break and was again hissed by the
crowd. The third round was entirely in
Jeffries' favor. The big fellow forced Baker
about the ring, trying hard to land a knock
out blow, but the Chicago man was too spry
for him and cleverly eluded his rushes.
In the fourth round Baker started in to
rush and did not give the Callfornian any
re3t, striking out with both right and left for
the body. This round was in favor of Baker.
In the fifth round Baker landed several severe
punches over Jeffries' heart, who also landed
a couple of stiff lefts on the Chicago man's
face. The round was in Baker's favor. In
the sixth round Jeffries went at Baker, forc
ing him to the ropes, and landed some terrific
left handed jolts on the jaw. Both men
struck in the breakaway and the crowd cried
foul, but the referee said that the men had
agreed to strike while in the clinch and,
therefore, no foul had been committed.
The seventh was anybody's round, both do-
Ing a lot of running around, Jeffries trying
with his left for Baker's wind with very good
success. The eighth was a hot round from
the beginning. Jeffries landed with his left
on the jaw and Baker went down, taking
five seconds to arise. He came up weak, and
Jeffries rushed him to the ropes and landed
hard left and right on the jaw. Baker again
went down and took the limit of nine seconds.
Jeffries went at his man, but Baker clinched
to avoid punishment. In the breakaway Jef
fries landed a terrific left on his opponent's
jaw, and the crowd cried foul, but it was not
claimed by Baker. Jeffries came up strong
and smiling for the last, while Baker rose
very leisurely. Jeffries walked up to his op
ponent, and, after a couple of leads, landed
a terrific left swing squarely on Baker's jaw,
knocking him under the ropes, where he was
counted out by the referee.
