The National Game on a
Nearly Perfect Basis.
Neat Contest Between Celebrities
Tan Ealtren and Coagblin Give sn Exhibition
of Scientific Pitching— Ths All-Cal'.
The game between the All-Californlas
snd the picked nine of league-players yes
terday deserved a better attendance. There
were probably about 1500 per-ons at the
grounds, and they witnessed one of the best
contests of the year. Tliere was not the
usual scattering departures of spectators
during the closing innings, and with few
exceptions every one remained seated until
tbe double play between young Van llal
tren and Carroll wound up the play.
The game was the liveliest that has been
seen on the grounds for many months, and
so far as actual playing time weut tiie con
test was the shortest of the year, being de
cided in one hour and twelve minutes.
The teams were very evenly matched, both
in fielding and batting, but the few errors
made by the picked nine proved expensive,
as they resulted In advancing tbe stars
around fie bases.
It was a battery battle all through, Tan
Haltren and Roscoe CougMn pitching su
perb ball, keeping the hits dowu and put
ting the sphere over the plate. Van Hal
tren wns never in In tter form, and his de
livery brought up recollections of his palmy
pitching days while with the old Greenhood
& Moran team. He seemed to have gone
back a few years, and was aeain the Cali
fornia colt, with his peculhr contortions iv
the lmx and deceptive change of pace.
Conghlln's pitching was remarkable, con
sidering the heavy batsmen he was pitted
sgainst. A scratch triple and four singles
were lined out by the celebrities. Roscoe
wa9 not afraid to'put the ball over the rubber,
but gave the batsman every opportunity to
try their skill. The support he received in
the opening Innings gave him increased con
fidence, aud when confident Coughlin is at
The fielding of the two teams was of a
character seldom witnessed in an exhibition
game. It was clean cut, sharp and accurate.
The infieliiers bore the brunt of the work
and handled hot hits with easy grace.
McDonald at short had ten difficult chances
and did not have even the suspicion of an
error. Cantiliion also played great ball, his
backward running catch in deep field being
one of the features of the play. Ebright's
two assists were on hard chances, and one
was accomplished by a right hand stop of a
hot driver over third base.
Charley l iooley's error was the only really
poor play in the game. He had a line op
portunity to retire two men, but lost his
bead and threw wild to the plate, allowing
a runner to score.
Rube Levy's catch of a long fly from
Fogarty's bat, In the third inning, was a
surprise to the audience. The ball was
batted to a point between left and center,
and bo tli Levy and Danny Sweeney started
for it. A collision seemed imminent, when
Sweeney darted aside. The movement sur
prised fiube as he was about to give wav to
the little fellow, but like a flash he reached
out for the sphere and gathered it in.
For the All-Calif' mias the fielding of
George Van Haltren, the first-base work of
Fred Carroll, the accurate throwing of
Bardic at third aud the catching of Brown
were the features.
George Speer was behind the bat for the
picked nine at the commencement of the
game, but in the second inning his right
burnt was badly split and he was forced to
rehire Stevens did the catching during the
balance nf the came, aud for a man who
was iut of practice played the position in
gocd shape. As there were no ex'ra men on
the benches Jack Donohue, who was um
piring, was nre.'sed into service and assigned
to Stevens' place in right field. Jack distin
guished himself on his second trip to bat by
lapping out a two-base hit to left field".
Pele Meegan umpired the last seven in
The runs were made as follows: In the
third inning for the AU-Californias George
Yuu Ilaitren secured first bose on an Infield
hit, stole second, went to third ou Stevens'
high throw to Cantiliion and scored ou a
grouider that forced a runner out at second.
In the fi niili inning Pete Sweeney hit to
ritht field for three bases. Charley Van
Haltren butted to Dooley, who threw wild
to ihe plate, and Sweeney scored. In the
seventh George Van Haltren bunted in front
of the ! late aud made first. Wheu he stole
second Stevens threw high over second aud
Danny Sweeney failed to block tne ball.

San Diego, Dec. 21.— A turn of the scales
in favor ol the Los Angeles team, after four
successive defeats at the hands of the San
Diego Ciub. gave the former club to-day's
game by a score of 14 to 10. The batteries
were Cai spy and Lobmau for Los Angeles
and Darby and Dungan for San Diego. The
Los Angeles men hit Darby hard, especially
in U.e in -t in Line, when they piled up seven
runs, five of which were earned.
lv the second inning the Sau Diego play
ers nearly overtook their rivals, making six
runs, but were unable to score any more
until the ninth, when they scored four runs.
By that time, however, the Los Angeles
Hub had too big a lead to overcome.
In the fourth inniugGoldie was at batand
received a pitched ball on the temple, which
knocked him out as effectually as a Sullivan
upperciit, and for the time it was thought he
was seriously hurt. He recovered conscious
ness in a few minutes, however, and is ap
pareutly none the worse for Darby's speed.

A sorely needed change in the constitu
tion of the California League is the elimina
tion or amendment of the rule prohibiting
managers from importing outside talent
after a certain date. The rule has been in
existence for three seasons, and has proved
a miserable failure in more than one re
spect As the law now stands on the league
books an Eastern man cannot be signed
subsequent to August 15th, unless the con
sent of three managers is obtained. The
proviso is a virtual nullification of the rule
itself, but it admits ot combinations hurtful
to one of the teams, as nas shown during
the past season, when Sacramento was pro
hibited from p'aviug Borchers. At the very
time Manager Finn was piotesting against
Uorchers, it is said, he was endeavoring to
secure 'loin PoiVers as a fir-t baseman. The
rule was openly defied by Stockton toward
the close of the late championship
eeries, aud it will continue to
be violated while it remains in
existence. The provis.on lias been
tbe cause of much of the wrangling and
trouble between the clubs, and there would
be more tmoothuets in the clesing months
of future se.tsons if it is abolished. The
rule was originally framed to prevent the
engaging of California celebrities on their
return Irom Eastern seasons. At that time
the clubs were largely composed of native
talent, but to-day tliere are more Easterners
than natives in the clubs, und the people have
expect grown accustomed to first-class ball.
The ideas oi patrons mu-t be suited above
all things, and there slioull be no obstacles
plmed m the way oi a manager who desires
to strengthen his team at any stage of tho
season. A brilliant finish of a pennant race
has a beneficial effect on the following year,
aod a brilliant finish can only be obtained
by weeding out weak material. If the pro
hibitory law is to stand let it be amended so
as to exclude National League aud American
Absocialion players only.

The earlier exchanges from Honolulu fur
nished lengthy accounts of the games be
tween the Californiaa aud native teams.
Considerable space is devoted to the first
contests, but the later games are dismissed
with a few lines. The reports state that the
attendance was very large during the first
two games, but the crowds then dwindled
away. The subsequent apathy was proba
bly caused by the one-sided character of the
contests. The Commercial Advertiser says
of tho opening game which was played No

Manager Robinson last week said to an
Oakland reporter: "lam now negotiating
with Ira Phillips, the shortstop of the
Spokane Falls team, and expect to secure
him. I have already sent him a contract to
sign, and expect it returned with his signa
ture at any day. I am also negotiating
with Hutchinson, j,b Ttstop for tftfe Chicago
Club; Youn^mau, second-baseman for the
Pittsburg National League team; Pitcher
Jones of the Pennsylvania btate League;
Pitcher Stevens of the Seattle Club, und
several other ptominent meu whose names
I do not desire to mention."
Manager Finn is endeavoring to arrange
the San Jose team ou the "favorite" basis,
and will if possible sign certain worthy
popular players il their terms are reasou
able. He thinks that he may make several
additions to his team this week. A few
days ago he signed George Speer, the plucky
lillie catcher of the Frisco club. Finn has
also signed as left fielder McGucken, who
played with the Jersey City team last season
and finished the year with the Baltimore
Club. McGucken has the reputation of
being a very heavy hitter. Kobiuson was
anxious to secure him toward the close of
the past season, but was unable to do so.
George Hanley is said to be negotiating
with an Eastern team, with good prospects
of securing an engagement. Hanley's rec
ord duriug the past season has beeu an ex
cellent one. He played in 130 games, during
which he was 590 times at bat made 115
runs and 159 base hits, which gives him a
batting average of .267. Of his base hits,
8 were triples, 29 doubles and ouo a home
run. He played 120 games iv center-field,
makiug 253 put outs, 18 assists and 38 errors.
His fielding percentage for that position is
.1)77. Duiiug the season he stole 40 bases.
The Los Angeles papers don't like it be
cause their team is being beaten here and
the Express hints that it is merely a ques
tion of locality and uuiforms, that is, that
when the boys play at Los Angeles the
uniforms will bo changed around so that
the strongest men will play in the Los
Angeles uniform, aud changed back agaiu
at San Diego. This charge is indignantly
denied by Manager Hellman, as he knows
the people would not stand that sort of
"Hippodroining."— San Diego Sun.
The coaching of base-runners was un
known to the Sandwich Islanders up to the
time of the arrival of the Californias. A
Houolulu paver says concerning the first
game: "Tha home players were evidently
disconcerted by the novel features intro
duced by the coachers of the Californias.
They kept up a din of shouting that must
have made our auctioneers turn green with
envy at their capacity of turbulent elocu

Short Stories Gathered From the
Eatee's Opinion of Same's Chances — He
Thought It Wss Untrue— A Teacher Sur
prised— Boggs as a Senator.
Morris M. Estee sat with a party of friends
at the Palace last night and discussed tbe
political situation in the East.
"The Blame sentiment has grown so among
the people," he said, "that bis name is being
discussed on all sides as the coming Presi
dential candidate. Ido not think, however,
that be will be the man, for he could not
afford to make a fight for It, and ttu poli
ticians are opposed to him. Now, as an ex
ample, just suppose the nomination were to
made by the Republican members of the
Senate. It is no exaggeration to say tbat at
least three- fourths of them would vote
against Mr. Blame, while at the same time
a cauvass of the Republicans in the galleries
aud lobbies would probably result in liis
favor about nine to one. Unfortunately the
politicians, as a rule, make the nominations,
and not the people."
WANTED THE TRUTH.
A story of youthful precocity that will bear
repetition comes Irom oue of the downtown
hotels. A gentleman and his wife, who
have a little boy but tive years old, attended
church yesterday morniug, and on return
ing home the countenance of the youug
hopeful wore a most serious expression.
On being questioned by his father as to the

A young lady teacher in the Clement

"We wish you the same, Miss ," re

"Hope you'll do the same, Miss ,"
came the unanimous chorus, and the teacher

gratulated him on liis election, and on ihe
additioual fact that his maj rity was largely

"How do you account for it, Wilson?"
asked Boggs with his blandest smile.

was the laconic reply.

A business man with a distracted look on
his face would rush in rapidly, uotice the

of fare iv his hands as quickly as can be

Whiie he was making this examination with
his head bent forward another ten seconds
elapsed, and the next drop fell down his
neck, which was brought just under the

He was a business man. He had lost a

A DISPUTED ESTATE.
As Csnal, a Widow Hubs Serenely Ip
and Pots In a Claim.
There is n prospect of a long legal fight
over the distribution of $2,a30,000 in personal
properly and 8300,000 in real estate left by
Luring A. Robertson, who died suddenly at
the Hotel St. George, Brooklyn, on October
10th, says a New York dispatch to the
Cleveland Leader. The disturbing element
is a woman who puts in a claim for the en
tire estate ou the ground that she is the
widow of the deceased millionaire leather
merchant The six uncles and aunts of Mr.
Robertson believed they would share the
property equally, for he had left no will,
and they petitioned Surrogate Abbott of
Brooklyn for the appointment of adminis
trators. Tho citations were returnable In
court yesterday morning, and everything
looked favorable for the claimaints, until
Lawyeis Baker and Cohen of this city pre
sented another petition, signed In a bold
masrulins Hand with the name of Helen
Robertson. The new petition startled the
lawyers of tbe other relatives and Surrogate
Abbott postponed further heating until
Loring A. Robertson was engaged In tbe
leather trade at 84 Gold street, this city, and
was well known. He was 60 years old, and
for three months before his death had been
living at the Hotel St. George. He had been
ill for a week btfore October 10th, but did
not apprehend serious results. On the morn
ing of that day he did not appear at break
fast and the proprietor went to his room.
Receiving uo response to his calls, he forced
his way into the apartment. Robertson was
lying iv bed in his night-dress, dead. Tho
post mortem examination showed that d«ath
had been caused by heart disease and that
there was no grouud for the i-uiuor that he
had committed suicid?. An examination of
his effects showed that almost his entire es
tate was in personal property, largely iv se-
curities deposited with trust companies in
this city. The persons who expected to
share his property were Elbert Robertson,
an uncle, of Geneva; James Robertson, an
other uncle, of Constantia; Pbileva R.
Pitcher of Brooklyn, Klishn P. Strong of
Starruccn, Pa. : Louisa Strong of Ashland
and Elmira Stedmnn of Brattleboro, Vt.
Mr. Robertson had always been regarded
by the members of his family as a bachelor
who was 100 shrewd to form entangling al
liances with women. The petitioner asks
that as she will not be able to procure bonds
sufficient for the administration of so large
an estate, the Brooklyn Trust Company
shall be named os co-administrator. The
woman did not appear in court and her law
yers refused to say anything about her. Her
address is not given in any of the papers in
the case, but it is probable that she will ap
pear before the Surrogate on Monday. Her
lawyers say they will be able to prove that
Robertson lived with her for four years and
introduced her to his friends as his wife.
B. W. Cohen said last night thai no cere
mony was performed, but they agreed
verbally to live together as man and wife.
His client has no papers to prove her claim.
She was, he said, an eminently respectable
young woman when Mr. Robertson met her
four years ago. She is now living in the

A month ago Charles Lemmon, the son of
a well-to-do farmer near Milford, Ohio, was
struck by a train on the Little Miami, says
the Pittsburg Dispatch. The engine struck
him, running over both legs near the knee.
It was a dark, nasty night, and the rain was
pouring down in torrents. Young Lemmon,
after the traiu had SO cruelly maimed him
for life, managed to drag himself some dis
tance from the track. Then he took off his
coat aud vest and tore the latter Into strips,
and, winding one around his ris?ht leg, be
tween the hip and knee, he hastily impro
vised a tourniquet by tying the pieces to
gether, and, 'naming a piece of pine board
he had managed to find into the strip, twisted
it so tiahtly as to stop the flow of blood, and
then the left leg was treated in the same
maimer, the stick used for this being a dead
limb. Thus, whilo suffering terribly iv a
coudition under which most men would
have resigned themselves to death, the
brave boy saved his life. Feariug that his
efforts would make him faiut, he struggled
desperately to keep from it, succeeding so
well that the feeling of faintness passed
away entirely. Then he stoically laid him
self up against the sido of the house and
awaited the uawuing of the day. Tliere
throngh the long hours of the terrible night
the poor fellow lay, enduring torments of
agony almost beyond description. With the
morning came help, and tho brave fellow
was borne away to his home. lir. Belt was
summoned, and he in turn telegraphed to
Cincinnati to Dr. Phythian. It was 10
o'clock when that physician arrived, and
the boy had not uttered one word of com
plaint, although his bleeding lips attested
the wonderful power of endurance that his
will was compelling. Then without admin
istering any opiates the doctor cut olf both
let's and cauterized the wounds. In the face
of this most agonizing ordeal Lemmon did
not utter a word of complaint, though after
the operation he fainted away. Then an
other remarkable feature was manifested in
the case— a feature almost beyond parallel
in medical history, Exactly three weeks
from that time Lemmon was calmly sitting
up in bed, almost entirely well, and smoking
his pipe. Lemmon is 21 years of »ge, and
previous to his accident lived with ins pa
rent* and woiked ou liis father's farm.
Mauy prominent physicians interested in
the ease have called ou hlui and bear wit
ness to the truth of this most remarkable
PERIL OF A CLIMBER.
Swinging SM F<-ot High While a Forly
-Mile Gal* Blows.
Jack Carroll, swimmer, diver, man-o'
war's man, steeple climber and chimney
sealer, swayed back and forth just a trifle
less thau 250 feet from earth at the noon
hour to-day, when thousands going to and
from work stopped and craved their necks,
expecting every moment to see him fall to
ground, fays a Boston dispatch to the
Chicago llerald. lie was ln a swinging
chair, suspended by a slender rope, and the
force of the wind, that blew fully
forty miles an hour, rendered his
task one of deadly peril. Carroll
wns attaching a lightning rod to
a uew chimney at the electric-power station
on Albany street, the most lofty structure
in Boston to-day, and one of tho largest
chimneys iv the world. A stout mpis had
been run up the inside of the chimney
through blocks and down tbe outside to the
grouud again. Then Jack fastened to it his
sting, with a stout plank for a :<eAt. The
wind blew so fearfully that guy-ropes had
to be suspended from tho top. His seat
hail an arrangement on tho ends so that it
conld be attached to these ropes and slide
between them, else the wind would have
blown him out so far that he could not
have reached Ihe chimney at all. Used
as he was to such trips, it seemed ouly a
joke to him. But the wind wus a little
heavier than he had anticipated. After he
had reached tha point where he received the
full benefit of its caresses, he signaled to be
lowered, and came dowu to make his
fastenings still more secure. Then he went
up again and commenced work, fastening
the thin striis of metal to the iron inserted
iv the. brickwork done as the masons pro
gressed upward. The wind still blew him
out so far that he had to unhook his seat
from the guide ropes and use his feet on
them to pull him toward the chimney. Just
under the bulging heHd of the chimney the
work was most difficult, but he effected it
safely. Then he w orked along downward.
The chimney is 252 feet high, 2ij feet diame
ter at the base and 13 feet at the top.
SLOW, BUT SURE.
Justice Triumphs After a Battle of
The celebrated case of John Blyew has
ended, says a Vanceburg (Ky.) dispatch to
the Cincinnati Euquirer. After twelve
hours' deliberation the jury returned a ver
dict of guilty, fixing his punishment in the
penitentiary for life. lie murdered all of a
colored family except two little plcannies—
being a family of six— four of whom were
literally hacked to pieces with an ax. The
cabin presented a shocking sight on a Sab
bath morning in August, 18ii8. Tliere lay
the lifeless body of Jack Foster with
twenty-one cuts on the head.
By liis side was the body of his wife with
six gashes on her head and as many on her
back, showing ihat death came to them
while fighting to protect each other. In a
bed near by was found the dead body of
Foster's mother, with her *kull split in
twain, 'then a tra 1 of blocd was followed
to the house of Fred Nichols, 200
Yards distant, and there Richard Fos
ter, a lad of 16 years, was found with
two wounds on his head from which lie
died that day, but not until he told who the
murderers were. One little girl had two
wounds on her head, which were shown to
the jury In this trial, but sbe was m.t per
mitted to testify, as she was only 4 years old
at the time of the massacre.
Tho State and defense were both ably
represented by counsel, but the ingenuity
and ability of defendant's counsel, although
twenty-two years have elapsed since the
deeu was committed, conld not deter or
prevent a jury from Inflicting a just pun
ishment on the guilty ones. One member
of the jury Is especially tn be commended.
By an oversight of the State's counsel a
n. phew of George Kennard was put upon
the jury, and notwithstanding a verdict of
guilty against John Blyew would carry with
it one of like import ngaiust the juror's
uncle, yet he bad the manhood to assist in
vindicating justice. Twenty-five thousand
dollars have beeu expended by this State.

They Are Noted aa Wonders of the
These Holland dikes are among the won
ders of the world. I cannot say for how
many miles they stretch aloug the coast and
turoughout the interior, but you may be
sure that wherever a dike is necessary to
keep back the encioacliing waters there it is.
Otherwise nothing would be there— at least,
nothing in the form of land, nothing but a
fearful illustration of tho principal law of
hydrostatics, water always seeks its level.
Sometimes the dikes, however carefully
built, will "spring aj!e.ik,"aud if not at
tended to at once terrible results are sure to
follow. In threatened places guards are
stationed at intervals, and a steady watch Is
kept up night aud day. At the first signal
of danger every Dutchman within hearing
of the starting bell is ready to rush to the
rescue. When the weak spot is discovered,
what do you think is used to meet the
emergency? What but straw— everywhere
else considered the most helpless of all
things in water! Yet straw iv tiie hands of
the Dutch has a will ol its own. Woven
into huge mats and securely pressed against
the embankment, it defies even a rushing
tide eager to sweep over the country.
These dikes form almost the only per
fectly dry land to be seen from the ocean
siue. They are high and wide, with (me car
riage roails on tup, sometimes lined with
buildiugs and trees. Lying on one side of
them and nearly en a level wilh the edge is
tiie sea, lake, canal or river, as the case may
be; on the other the lUt fields stretching
damply along at their base, so that the cot
tage roofs some times are lower thau the
shining line of the water. Frogs squatting
on the shore can take quite a bird's-eya view
of the laudsenpe, and little fish wriggle their
tails higher than the tops of the willows
near hy. Horses lonic complacently down
