Foolish Playing; Lotes Another Game For the Quicksteps.. Various Notea. Yesterday afternoon in the presence of f bout 400 persons, th* Quickstep added another to their long list of defeats. The club was singularly unfortunate in yester day's game. Dorr was put in to pitch and Pitched a splendid game for three Innings, Jutin the fourth inning he completely went to pieces, the skin came off his hands and the Anthracites lit on to him and earned three out of five runs they made in the inning. The next inning he was retired and Fox put in,the coal crackers hitting him for but two safe hits. Another was the ex periment at second base, Wood, the Altoona )layer; he played a miserable game, ast and by no means least was "Umpire" Burt. Such an apology has not been around lor some time; his decisions were « xecrable. He seemed to have no judgment as to strikes and balls, and several other decisions, not Ahl V nno a* Imm., nl*»« AiA Cusick behind the bat was splendid, holding both Dorr and Fox in superb style. Kienzel proved himself an addition as his record will show. In eighth inning the club bid fair to tie the score and eeeded in earning three runs after two men were out. Two men were on base and Kienzel came to the bat. Kienzel had made a hitevery time he came to the bat before. A good ball came,he sent on a savage drive to left field, but it was intercepted by Alcott after a long run. The playing of McLaugh lin at short was splendid and at the bat he did well.

Frank Cuuliff, a catcher of the Quickstep Club, has been black listed for re!using to play. Higgins, of last years Our Bo'ys, signed last evening as second baseman for the Quicksteps. William Mcl.ean, the old Philadelphia umpire, takes the place of Burnham League umpire. Kappel, formerly of the Bridgeton, N. J., club, has signed as catcher for the Active club of Reading. Athletics failed to put in appearance at the Polo Grounds, New York, yesterday, and the game was declared off. It is rumored that, a uew league is to be formed, taking in the largest cities not represented in either association. John McKendrick of last \ ears' Expeits and Defiance, started for Trenton ou trial as a pitcher, at 6 o'clock this morning. The Quicksteps started ou their trip this morning and will not return until the 18th of August. games, commencing with the Active to-day. Harrisburg Monday, Pottsville Tuesday and then they will take two days in each Inter State town. Since the proprietors of the score sold at Quickstep Park began to pay atten tion to the matter of the positions and hat ting order of the players, their cards models. They arc, by odds, the best issued the grounds of any Eastern clubs, and ii is doubtful if they are equalled anywhere. Ward and Smiley did uot accompany th* club this morning. It. is unfortunate that the club are without the services of Smiley, as his faultless playing at second base maket* him a valuable member of the club. He will try aud join the boys next week, how All regret that he did not play yes terday as the result, without doubt, would have been different. James Develiu, the one« famous pitcher, is in very poor health, and in straitened cir cumstances. His friends have arranged t" give him a benefit ou Thursday, August 9, at Jumbo Park, when the August Flower Club will play a picked professional team. Tickets may be had at Shibe's, No. 223 North Eighth street, or of Mr. Frallnger, manager of the August Flower Club. The position of Allen, the New York's pitcher, when preparing to deliver a ball, is described by the Cleveland Leader as fol lows: He spits on the end of his thumb, looks up at the sky and down at the ground, grins at the batsman, winks at the catcher, throws a kiss at the umpire, plante his right heel firmly in the ground, sneaks a look at firet base, then stands erect,puts both hands behind him, rolls the ball around over the small of his back, raises his left foot, anti makes a wicked dri'.e forward as he delivers the ball. He then pants until the ball is re turned to him and goes through the same manœuvera. While away they will piny 13 "'ll it ever. Trotting Against Time. About 200 people were present at the 8cheutzen Park yesterday afternoon, to wit ness the trotting of James C. McComb's mare, Flora F., in an attempt to beat the best time ever made on the track, which was 2.28)4 by Dexter. Two straight heats were trotted without a break in 2.83 and 2.29)4 Mr. McComb, who drove the mare, is rr: fident that she can beat the 2.28>4 as he fays ■he trotted in 2.24W a short time before he purchased her in Syracuse, New York. THE TELE<.RAP ! STRIKE. But Little Chaude In the State of A Astra— Iloth Std s firm. New Yokk. July 27.— Yfc the headquar ters of striking operators to-day, it was said that the gotiations whit! n the '• rotherhood und the Baltimore are uo pending bet and Ohio Telegraph Coro pan v,at Biltimore, would be sembly ot the Brotherhood at Baltimore, which had repressed the strikers in the conference, report that the company had promised to give a definite answer to-day, and it was thought a compromise would be effected. 4t the Baltimore and Ohio office, in this city, it was said that uo intimation of a change in the policy which had been pursued since the strike had been given by any of the officers of the comnany. The situation at the Western Union office was reported to be steadily Improving, and when the busim ss to all Important, points was clear little more than the usual number of mes sages laid said that continual applications were being received for positions In the office, and all recruits were being utilized to supply branch and out of town offices. Four additional city offices were opened to-day, making 48 in all which There is not yet any !• dication on the part of the Company to yield in the slightest de gree to the demand of the strikers, and the latter have come to the conclusion that they must expect to make a long fight of It. The Western Union Company reports both an increase of business and an increase in facility in handling It. The resumption of business by the American Rapid Company has not, they say, affected them. The telegraphers, on the contrary, report that no business has been sent to New Or leans to-day, and that some of yesterday's business is still on the file. Business to Cin cinnati, 8t. Louis,Buffalo,Pittsburg,Boston-, Detroit, Chicago and other points, they say, is from two to five hours behind. Baltimohe, July 27.—The managers in the main offices of the Western Union and Baltimore and Ohio Telegraph Companies report matters unchanged, rangement with the striking telegraphers is concerned, and that all business offering is properly handled.
