three was the record of the hand!
capped Islanders at Bloomington. Yes
terday's game was won through well
placed hits with the assistance of er
rors on the part of Bloomington at

home team was unable to bunch safe
drives except in that session. . Barker
was slightly injured in the ninth and
Smith went to the box, while Wright
took the first sack.

DEFEAT OF O'BRIEN
Philadelphia!! Couldn't Stop the
Shifty Frisco Ex-Amateur.
OBLIGED TO TURN AND RUN
How the Californian Wore Down the
Sam isorger or &au rranciseo is tne
present big noise in the heavyweight
pugilistic arena. As for the reason
well, every one knows It. Sam out
fought "Philadelphia Jack" O'Brien In
Quakertown and Is now the foremost
claimant for the classic throne left va
cant when the unequaled Jim Jeffries
took to the woods.
Sam had the crafty, shifty O'Brien
lad going four ways when the gong got
busy in Philadelphia. Jack was all In
his wind and strength were all out
and Sam had the answer In both of his
brawny mitts. And the Berger boy
was only nn amateur a year ago too,
Oh, sadness for the O'Brien clan!
It had been popularly predicted that
Jack O'Brien would wipe Sam off our
lovely sphere. It had been said with
wise and knowing smiles that O'Brien
in making this match had simply de
cided to make a little vacation money
In the easiest manner possible. They
likened Berger to a big "lemon," and
they said that O'Brien's favorite sum
mer drink was lemonade.
When Berger made some stout
speeches to the effect that if he ever
got a chance at "Jumpln Jack"
O'Brien he would make him look like
a broken toy the speeches were not
listened to with any patience. They
said that Berger would think of the
San Francisco earthquake as a mere
trlfler after be bad fallen against the
whirling gloves of the magical O'Brien

O'Jirien. He had gone against the
clever riugiuaster without any fear,
without any nervousness. He had
played the game with a stout heart
Ho had taken the lightning jabs. He
bad wilhstood the cruel hojks. He
had not for one instant backed away
from the fray, lie went pondemusly
pounding away at O'Brien's face and
at his body, and if he missed and got
sharp, stinging blows for his pains he
refused to bo at all discouraged or
put out by them.
He kept after O'Brien. He made
O'Brien dance .his liveliest to keep out
of h-irm's way. He was so persistent
in his attack that there were tunes
when the claimant of the heavyweight
championship was obliged to turn tai
and run like a rabbit to different parts
of the ring.
He made O'Brien hug. He made
O'Brien use every trick that the old
ring warrior knows how to use when
the fire gets too fierce for safety and
The fight Itself was a splendid one,
Never did the seconds of any minute
In any round drag. The men were at
it constantly, and Berger's absolutely
constant attack upon his shiftier oppo
nent of great repute was what won
the crowd's heart.
O'Brien met the attacks with the best
play of bands and feet that he has In
his command, and a lightning fast and
TCouderful boxer he really is. But It

The Skiddoa has not yet started in n

she has certainly not performed as well

The Chewink VI. is owned by Frank

of the Rockford (111.) police department,

though he did not call it that.
Golden says he threw the ball by
wetting the Inside of his third finger
on the right hand where he gripped the

ball in his shoulder for days after.
Golden started with the famous For

He began his professional career with
the Westerns of Keokuk, la., where he
played In 1873 and 1874. The Keokuk
club joined the American association in
1873 and went to pieces in July of that
year. Golden finished the season with
