Special to The Globe.
ST. LOUIS, Mo., April 6.—Delightful
w^atlker brought out a crowd of 6,000 to
witness the first Sunday game of -th?
season and incidentally to witness Dono
van's young men go down to defeat, St.
Paul winning the game in the ninth in
ning, 6 to 5.
on Saturday, each side tried out
tiiree pitchers. O'Neill, who broke into
fast company last season, opened tor fcbe
;;.als. He was very wild. In the
inning he could not locate the plate,
five men securing bases on balls, three be
>rced over the plate and five runs
i. In the fourth and fifth innings
ardinals registered runs, and in the
th tied the game with a batting rally
and an error by Dillard. Huggins, Shay
and Kelley pulled off a pretty double play
in the third, which was duplicated in the
i by Geier, Huggins and Kelley.
When the ninth inning opened the score
I 3-5. Geier went in to bat. He swat
ted the bal! good and hard deep Into cen
ter. Smoot turned and ran after it, but
■ it could be relayed in, Geier danc
ross the plate. This proved to f>e
the winning run, as the Cardinals failed
Sister In their half, notwithstanding
let that ifartman drove the ball to
right for two bases. Jessup made the
-teal of the season, in the fifth. Ob
ig a base on balls he watched his
opportunity and made for second, reach
ing it on a slide, though Nichols tried to
head him off.
Kelley May Sl«u Clifford
Manager Kelley tried Clifford, a young
Bt. Louis player," at center and left, and
he did very well, though he failed to con
i)"' i with the stick, fanning twice ana
S base on balls twice. He left the
city with the team tonight, and it is
probable that he will sign a contract when
Kelley is satisfied that he has regained his
n^rve. The score:

CRIMSON TEAM WEAKER
HARVARD'S FIRST BASEMAN DE
CLARED INELIGIBLE TO PLAY.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 6.—0. O.
Frantz, Harvard '03, first baseman on the
Harvard baseball team last year, has
been declared ineligible for the nine this
year by the Harvard athletic committee,
on grounds of professionalism. Since the
Cutta affair in football last year, the
members of Harvard teams have been
asked to consider their re-cords carefully
in order that no such state of affairs
should exist again. Frantz wrote to the
committee stating the following facts:
In the summer of 1896 he played on a
semi-professional team at Winfleld, Kan.,
near his home. He played three weeks
and received $36, out of which he paid his
expenses! The Winfield team toured the
country and Frantz spent more than
the $35 which he had received. This clears
him technically of professionalism, but
thd Harvard committee has decided to
penalize him by debarring him from Har
vard athletics for one year.
A s was done in the case of the other
two summer baseball players. Story ar.d
Murphy, this year will count as one of
th» tour playing years. Frantz is very

KNOWS ALL ABOUT FITZ
H'COY SAYS ROBERT IS HARDEST
HITTER IX THE WORLD.
NEW YORK. April 5. -'Bob Fitzsim
mons was not made knock-kneed for
m thing," said "Kid" McCoy. "He is the
hardest hitter in the world, and the rea
son is that he stands with knees to
"Pitz pivots from his knees in deliver
ing a blow, and In that manner he can
lut four times as hard as a man who
phots from the hips or the waist.
"I used to box with Fitzsimmons in
New Orleans. I was only a novice at
the game then, and I watched every move
that he made. I studied him for four
years and I am willing to say I learned
more boxing from Fitzsimmons than from
all the other fighters that I ever saw. I
think that Fitzsimmons is the cleverest
lighter in the ring. Pic is a wonder. When
you think you have all he knows down
fine he remes up with soiretrrnc, r.ew
ITe uses his brains.
"When 1 want to send in a knockout I
purposely force my knees in the same
position that comes natural to Fitzsim
mons. Then I swing my whole body from
the knee up. That is where I got the
punch that upset Sharkey and with which
I recently put out three Englishmen in
thj same twelve-foot ring one night"
SANTRY WANTS TO KNOW.

"I had some promises of a match with

to bet at least $500 any time he make's
a match for his boy.

DONUN'S JAIL LIFE
ROWDY BALL PLAYER IS SPEND
IX« SOIMER IN BALTIMORE
WILL NOT SEE REPORTERS
Bold Mike Is Overawed by Unique
. ness of His Surrounding;* and
Seeks Deep Se
BALTIMORE, April 6.—'Mike Doniin,
Lall player and lady smasher, has "en- !
gaged' accommodations for the summer!
months at the city jail, and has taken up |
his quarters In one of the most exclusive j
rooms, No. 100, sometimes designated the ;
"bridal chamber,' because young gentle. 1
men who have committed a 'first offense'
are frequently provided with it as a
Strange as it may seem to hu friends
and acquaintances, Mike, the. man who
has so often faced without a tremor the
howling bleachers, the hero of many a
nerve-racking ordeal on the ball field, is
overawed by the uniqueness of his sur
roundings and is reported to have but
little to say. Indeed, he evidently seeks
de» p seclusion and mediation, unbroken
by cross-questioning, and has sent fortli
the edict that he will see "nary" a scribe.
Regularity will bo the order of Mike s
existence for some months to come, and i
this will probably be the strangest ex- i
perience of all. The rising bell rings -it
.") o'clock in the morning—just to think of !
it—Michael J. Doniin getting up cv try
morning at such an unseemly hour. Then
begins the morning "cake-of-sMan-walk,"
as the prisoners call it, the lock-step
march on the way to the "tow sr," where
a general washing is done. Scented soap
and soft towels are somewhat of a novelty
in the jail, but if Mike's friends desire to
send such comforts of the toilet, along
with a few boxes of talcum powder and
cologne, the article will be admitted.
What follows is strictly a home affair,
and a feeling of delicacy forbids a full
description of how Mike makes his bed,
sweeps the floor of his cell and generally
gets things orderly in his cute little apart
ment. The general call for breakfast be
ing made at this time, the household
operations are suspended and the tramp,
tramp, tramp, to "grub" begins. The
menu Is "varied," according to Warden
Doyle; sometimes the prisoners get hash,
bread and coffee, and then again, for a
change, they get coffee, bread and hash.
The next thing that Doniin dors is tola
"within the lodge." When nobody\s look
ing he cleans the rails In the tiers, du.^ts
the windows and polishes the brickwork.
The curves he puts Into the dusting are
said to be really remarkable, and whin
he is through the whole National lea sue
could "slide for third" down the tiers and
never raise a speck of dust. Just"
this time a man with brass buttons cornea
along and locks Mike up until dinner "ime.
Talks on l>aseball may or may not follow
m the period that precedes the noon hour,
when the dinner gong rings.
At this meals the piece de resistance is
a small bit of meat in a large pot of
soup. Then there is fresh or salt meat
and some bread, but without evun a little
bit of butter to grace it.
More polishing, sweeping and cleaning
follows, and tfien the prisoners are locked
up until supper, at 4 o'clock. This supper
is "varied," like breakfast, and consists
substantially of the same things.
From G until 9 o'clock Mike can cultivate
his literary tastes by absorbing knowledge
from the books of the jail library, and
also in smoking any tobacco that may be
sent in to him. Every sentenced prisoner
has a light in his room, and this can re
main lighted until "taps," at 9 o'clock
/The Beginning of
Pitcher Amos Rusie
Baseball fans will be interested in a
letter written from Indianapolis, March
29, 1889, to a Milwaukee man, which" tells
how Amos Rusie, the man who created
such a furor in pitching circles and who
was the most effective pitcher for a Lime
of all the league twlrlers, got his start.
It is signed by A. G. Owens and is as
"President Brush and Manager Ban
croft think they have found a clever
young pitcher in" the city amateur league,
and may engage him. He has been prac
ticing with the players, and was really
discovered by Capt. Glasscock, who thinks
he is a comer. His name is Rusie. lie
is a big, strong fellow, weighing about 1&)
pounds, and has great speed, with fairly
good command of the ball. He will at
least be given a trial in some of the ex
hibition games, and if he shows up, will
be .<igned. Of course, the club would not
pay him much salary, but probably more
than he is now making."
Rusfp was given a trial at Cleveland,
May 9 of the same year, but was unable
to get the ball over the plate. He was
given another trial here, June 15, in a
game against Pittsburg. He exhibited a
cegrec of efficiency that w.is unexpected.
He struck out seven men. His next game
was against Washington on the home
grounds. In this game he gaves five bases
on balls. Then, in July 5, he went up
against the "Phillies," replacing a well
known pitcher in the fifth inning and
during the remaining innings was hit
safely but twice. He pitched his first full
game against the "Phillies 1' on the tenth
of the same month.
This is the brief story of some of the
famous pitcher's first games.
He may heave dirt in the ditch but will
always be remembered for his early suc
Motes About the &iq and

Ban Johnson says he did not want Mc-
Aleer tlo sign Jones. He says the Ameri
can league does not want that kind of
ball players. What about McGuire?
Loudenslager, who was mentioned as
jumping his contract with the Brooklyn
Baseball club and going to the Eastern
league, did not jump, but was gi-ven the
privilege by Manager Hanlon. He asked
Hanlon to allow him to sign with the
Eastern league after he had contracted
to play with the Brooklyn club, and he
was allowed to go.
Hugh Duffy is now in Milwaukee. He
says he has a dozen men signed for his
"\Vestern league team, but he refuses to
give their names. Duffy springs a grouch
every time his freeze-out at the hands of
the American league is mentioned. He
says that if the National league will cut
to 25-cent ball it will skin the American a
block and a half. Especially does it be
hoove Boston to stick to the 25-cent cut
she made last year, says Duffy.

of the Reds, although so far the In

Harper is to be enjoined, if possible,
by the Ro'bison.s from playing with the
St. Louis Americans. "Harper signed
a contract with me last August, long
before he did business with McAleer,"
declared Donovan. "He was always well
treated by Mr. Robison, and 1 must say
that his course is one of ingratitude. His
salary was raised three times last year
without solicitation, and when we asked
him to sign it didn't take him but a few
momenta to make up his mind. He de
clared that as long as he played base
ball he would like to work for Mr. Robi
son, and the next thing we heard was
that he had deserted."
The crowd at Cincinnati to see Mag

Hon. John was compelled (although it

before was his honor from Indianapolis
known to be in such a talkative mood,

Jimmie Manning, owner of the Kansas
City franchise in the Western league,
blew into Washington and immediately
began dealing out dope to the sporting
writers there. He said that he was in
Kansas City to stay and would not de
sert this time as he once did. He also
let out the startling information that he
was building a $13,000 grandstand in Kan
sas City. Someone should immediately
get out a search warrant for this magni
ficent structure. A Jackson county farm
er who arrived from the East yesterday
reported that several days ago he passed
what looked like it might be a ball park,
and that a bleacher about as long as the

will join the club in that city.
The Denver - papers are agitating the
question of prices. All other cities in
the Western league charge but 25 cents,
and it is deemed unfair to stick the rate
up as they have threatened to do. Den
ver is a good baseball town, but the great
distance which a team must travel to
play there handicaps them, and the
chances are that the fans will have to
stand for the "extortion" or do without
Western league ball. This they, could do
without any particular difficulty. It would
be no trouble at all to get a crowd of am
ateurs together •in 'any town that would
be a credit to that chestnut.

Pitcher Platt by the National association.
Piatt accepted Stallings' terms and wired
for a contract and advance money. Stall
ings forwarded a check for $100 on March
26. Two days later he received a tele
gram saying that he was too late, as
he had signed with the Chicago Ameri
can league team. This is a dosa
of his own medicine for Mr. Stal
lings. and he should not kick
and he should, be ashamed to even
suggest blacklisting a player. While ha
was complaining about Platt he was en
deavoring to have Catcher Shaw jump
his Milwaukee contract and" succeeded
in bribing Brain, of the St. Paul club, to
become a contract jumper.
Inquirer: No, the prices of admission
to the American league, according to the
owners of the American league clubs,
have not been raised. You merely pay
50 cents for the same place where you
formerly sat for a quarter, and by the
exercise of a little mental science easily
convert yourself into the belief that you
paid but 25 cents.—New York Telegram.
