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

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

did well. The score follows:

in this city, it was said that uo intimation

There is not yet any !• dication on the part

The Western Union Company reports both
an increase of business and an increase in
