"WON IT, BUT HOW?
The Question That Blots the
Base Ball Pennant.
INGLOBIOUS INTJ- TOE THE "COLTS."
Beaten Three Straight by tbe Tall-End
Men from Cincinnati Individual Work
of Pome of the Chicago Team The Dis
credit That Lies Heavily I'pon Boston'
Victory General Belief That Ansnn
Has Been Robbed President Hart Re
lieves His Mind.
One AGO, Oct 6. The base ball season,
o far as the League is concerned, came to
an end.Satnrday. It did not go out in a
blaze of glory exactly not for the Colts,
for after seeing the pennant almost flying
from the pole in the west side grounds
that mnch-desired rag got a niggle on it
somehow and wiggled ont of Anson's
gra? to flatter over the stamping ground
of .aXompany of experts which hails ffoni
Boston. Xot for the; Beaneaters either,
tor, however conservative a man n:ay be
as to crediting the cry of fraud in sport
ing events, he must admit that there is a
look of skullduggery about those five
games with New York's pets which set
tled the bash of the great and only Anson.
The way the figures showed up at the end
f the trouble is given below:
National LciOiX. Won. Lwt. P.O.
Boston.. K M .i
Chicago S3 .(;
New York Tl 61
I'hilnclelpliia W W .6
ClevelHVl K3 71
Brooklyn C.l T8 ,44T
Cincinnati fit) M .400
Pittsburg 55 HU .4117
Some Individual Record.
The individual records of the Chicago
club show that Anson is third in batting,
the first place being captured by Schriver
nd the second by Ryan. Anson leads in
fielding as to the clnb, and as a first base
man is in the front among the first bae
Tnen of all the clubs. Hutchinson has
made a brilliant record as pitcher. He
won the game 42 times and was defeated 17
times, besides saving the game sever .1
times when other pitchers were losing it.
Gumbert won 19 out of 31 games; L-hy
has 13 out of 25 aDd Vickery and Stein ju-t
bout broke even iu the nine games each
The Talk of Crookedness.
In this city the feeling is very strong
that the Chicago club has been robbed of
a well-won victory, and won by such
clumsy fraud that an infant could detect
it. The effect of this on base ball is some
thing for the future to decide, but if it is
xtot satisfactorily cleared up it cannot fail to
be disastrous. Even the er inks will not
go to see a base ball contest if it is felt
that the game is not conducted on the
square. The feeling that games were
"thrown" to Boston is not confined to
Chicago. In Boston itself and in New
Tork it is strong in SDite of the denials
made by the managers of those two clubs.
Closing Scores In the League.
Following are the scores that closed the
League season: At Philadelphia Phila
delphia, 5; Boston, S. At Chicago Cin
cinnati, 15; Chicago, 9. At New York
lew Y'ork, 7; Brooklyn, 3. At Cleveland
Cleveland, 6; Pittsburg, 4.
PRESIDENT HART TALKS A LITTLE.
Ms Thinks That Those Boston-New York
Games Look Very Queer.
President Hart has received the assur
ance from Nick Young that the postponed
games which it was proposed to protest,
and which bad mnch to do with Chicago's
defeat, were consented to by six of the
clubs, making them legal. So protests on
this gronnd are useless; but he cannot see
why Chicago's consent was not asked in
other words, why the matter was kept se
cret from the club that was principally
Interested unless there was some dark
lantern work on foot. But about the re
markable series of wiDs of Boston be
talked Saturday without reserve, and said
he proposes to find out whether there is
any ground for the suspicion of foul play.
The Singular Tactics of New York.
He said: "I do not share the opinion of
many that it was a combined effort on the
part of the eastern clubs to throw the
championship to Boston, but I do think
the New Y'ork club especially has laid
itself wide open to criticism by tha very
singular manner in which it placed its
team on the field in the five games played
in Boston. The Bostons have of late been
playing a wonderfully strong game, and
might possibly have won five straight
games from the New Yorks on their m r
its, but it is very unfortunate for thein
and all concerned that their title to the
pennant should be clouded by the sus
picious actions of those in control of the
placing of the New York team.
Either Dishonesty or Incompetency.
"From present information and from
private advices from Boston I caniot but
feel that there has been either downright
dishonesty on the part of the New Y'ork
club or gross incompetency on the part of
those In control of the team. I have not
definitely decided what action I shall
take, but in order to bring the matter
squarely before the League I may protest
all the games played by the New York
and Boston clubs in Boston during the Chi
cago series, which I trust will result in an
Investigation which will clear the atmos
phere and place the responsibility where
it belongs. If the New Yorks were so
badly broken up as they claim why did
they consent to playing two extra games
in Boston, one of which should have been
played in N'ew York instead of Bostouf
Will lusist on Justice.
"The base ball public may rest assured
that I shall leave no stone unturned to
probe this matter to its bottom and to at
least place the responsibility for the un
fortunate state of affairs regarding the
championship where it belongs, and I
ball insiBt upon the expulsion of guilty
parties, be they 'magnates,' managers,
captains or players,"
Tbe American Association.
The Association season has not yet
ended, but Boston is a winner of the pen
nant of tbe aggregation unless something
extraordinary ia done of the kind so
strongly suspected in the League. The
standing of the clubs last night was as

Philadelphia, Oct. 5. At Saturday's
session of the general conference of the
I vangelical church the committee who
bad been investigating the case of Bishop
C ubs, who was found guilty of certain
charges and suspended from the ministry,
r com mended that the case be brought
bi'fore the general conference and thor
oughly invest igated. At tbe session of the

OPiNIONS OF GLADSTONE'S SPEECH.
His Liberal Friends Not Satisfied with
L-tcdon, Oct. 5. Among the Liberals
throughout the country there is not com
plete satisfaction with Gladstone's ad
dress of FriJay night. His evident reluc
tance to share in tbe dem ind for the abo
lition of the house of lords and his quali
fied support of the proposition that mem
bers of parliament should be salaried are
deerly disappointing. The feeling against
the bouse of lords is intense and the rh.i
icals are not willing to agree to Glad
stone's programme that the lords shall
not 1 disturbed unless they oppose Irish
What the Radicals Want.
Some of the more active radical leaders
say tnat to make a fight against tbe bouse
oflotdson such an issue would be to
strengthen it by calling to the support of
tbe It rdsall those electors who are opposed
to Irish separation, and thereby giving
t he lords a prestige as champions of tbe
unionist cause. What the radicals warit
is to taise the question as to whether the
house of lords has a right to exist on the
merits of that question alone. Altogether,
the m ire the English Liberals chew over
Mr. Gladstone's speech the less ttey
FOREIGN GOODS FOR THE FAIR.
All Rt strictions on Imports To Be Re

McLean Will Have to Whistle.
WasH-NCTON, Oct. 5 No official in
formaticn has been received here regard
ing the seizure of Captain McLean and his
crew for seal poaching in Russian waters.
When the facts are laid before the state
department whatever steps are necessary
will be taken to see that their rights as
American citizens are recognized, but as
tbe United States makes the same claims
regarding the seal haunts that Russia
does it looks like McLean may whistle for
Tl Charges Against Egan.
Washin gton, Oct. 5. The Chilian rep
resentatives here have made public a doc
ument containing their Indictment of
Minister Egan. Briefly it charges him
with being an active Balmacedist, with

JacCann that the junta could not win, and
with inducing the American ' Cable com

London', Oct. 5. The employes of the
mantel mating establishments in the va

reduction of wages which has beeu
brought ah m. :.s they allege, by tbe in
flux of Jev Uli workers from the conti

the whole of this class of work. Wages
have fallen to an average of 7 shillings
per week. A general movement against
the foreign cheap labor is mooted.

young brother of the aesthetic poet, Oscxr

Mrs. Leslie was plainly dressed aud
loosed youthful, but not so youthful as
her six foot, black-bearded, black eyed es

presence, but he was unaware of their
The Doctor Hears Some News.
They had not come entirely to hear the
doctor's sermon. Dr. D.-ems had j ro
nounccd the benediction and was descend
ing the pulpit stairs when he was halted
by the sexton. Mr. Wilde had previously
spoken briefly to the sexton. The sub
stance of his remark was that Mrs. Leslie
was going to be married. The bridga
groom was to be Wilde. The congrega
tion, which was small, was out of the
church when the doctor, who is tbe editor
f Mrs. Leslie's religious monthly, re
ceived the announcement of Mrs. Leslie's
Joined in the Church Farlor.
He asked if the couple, who had stepped
forward, wauted to be married in the

accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Cramer and
Marshall P. Wilder, the humorist, who is
a staunch f-iend of Mrs. LesMe. lie

widespread attention. "I have," be said,

Her Affair with the Marquis.
Mrs. Leslie bas had many suitors since
ber widowhood, but the nearest she came
to marrying any one was tbe Marquis de
Leuville. On July 10, 1S89, while in Lon
don, she and tbe marquis called at tbe
registry office and obtained a license. Tbe
wedding did not come off, however, for
some unexplained reason. Later at tbe

The turning point
in woman's life brings peculiar
weaknesses and ailments. Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription
brings relief and cure. It is a
powerful, invigorating, restorative
tonic and nervine. It imparts
strength to the whole system in
general, and to the uterine organs
and appendages in particular.
"Run-down," debilitated and deli
cate women need it. It's a legiti
mate medicine purely vegetable,
perfectly harmless. It's guaranteed
to give satisfaction in every case, or
money refunded. Nothing else does
as much. You only pay for the
good you get. Can you ask more?
As a regulator and promoter of
functional action, at that critical
period of change from girlhood to
womanhood, " Favorite Prescrip
tion" is a perfectly safe remedial
agent, and can produce only good
results. It is equally efficacious and
valuable in its effects when taken
for those disorders and derange
ments incident to that later and
most critical period, known as " The
Change of Life."
