The present genteel style is the wide toe, ot which we're selling large numbers, is particularly neat. Strange that it should be so hard to get the young men out of the habit of wearing the narrow toed .hoes when they are virtua ly out of style. Bannister's shoes are all made on the wide toe last. They are the finest ready-made shoe in the market and give entire satiRfacton.

The Active players have been released for the season. The Actives will have more Californians next season. Morris and Carroll have gone to Califor nia for the winter. Hubbard will play no more with the Ath letic Club this fall. The Providence club play their first game this season with the Athletics on Friday at Philadelphia. The Harrisburg club joined in the re ep tion of the Athletic club In Philadelphia on Monday evening. John Kelly, ot New York, is to umpire all the games the Athletics play with League teams this month. Morrill has a first base average of 973; Phillips, .972; Farrar, .970; Start, Brouthers, .965; Connor, .954, and Powell, 952. 966; Boston offered Richardson, Buffalo's 0 ^ ond baseman, $2,500 to play in Boston next year, but Bufialo would not give him his re lease. Two Harrisburg base ball men are said to "have attempted suicide by drowning last Saturday night while intoxicated. The chilly water made them thiuk better of it, however, and they "swam out" without as 1 sistance. According to the League averages the strongest batting team would be: Bennett, catcher; Radbourn, pitcher; Brouthers, first base; Bu'dnck, second base; 8utton, third base; Irwin,shortstop; Q'Rourke, left field; Gore, centre field; Mai nlng, right field. The best fielding nine would comprise Bennett, catcher; Whitney, pitcher; Morrill, first base; Farrell, second base; Sutton, third base; Glasscock, short stop; Hornung, left field; Hines, centre field; Evans, right field. On account of the mixed up condition of the record of games played by the clubs in the Inter-State Association, it is difficult to obtain clubs and to decide which team is justly en titled to it« claim of superiority. There is a general impression In this city that the Har rieburg club The Brooklyns must be the ouly competi tors to this claim. In order to settle the question of superiority between the two clubs the directors of the Harrisburg club are willing to arrange a series ot five games with the Brooklyns on terms to be mutually agreed upon. 8uch a contest would un doubtedly excite great interest in the two cities .—Harrisburg Patriot. The Si. Loul6 club team had a very eiclt iug contest with the Indianapolis team at St. Lou s yesterday, as will be seen by the appended score, ten inniugs being played: Indianapolis... 0000 0 01010—2 St. LiOais. 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1-3 The two champion learns of 1883—the Bostons and Athletics are champions of 1884—played an exciting game in Cincinnati yesterday, as will be seen by the appended score, the visitors being handsomely "Chicagoed:" Cincinnati Chicago...

Corcoran FIGHTING THE HERALD. Th« New York NewaUi Addi to the I'ublie. The New York newsdealers bave prepared the following statement for the pubHc: "In order to counteract the positive rain statements made In the Herald regarding the controversy between us and the pub lisher of that paper, we invite a considera tion of the actual facts in the case. News paper readers are lovers of fair play, and we '•an safely abide by the decision of such judges. Before the moirth of October, 1876, we paid three cents for the Herald, and sold It for four. We had to order the'papers the night before publicatlou and pay in advance, so that we took all the risk of losses. One morning in October, after we bad put in our usual orders and paid for them at three cents each, we came down for our papers, and found hlg • posters up announcing that the retail price was three cents, and were coolly told we must sell for that price, thus putting In our time and labor and all our expenses on that day for the benefit of the elegant young man who owns the sheet. After that we bought our Herald* at two cents anda-hal' each. That this margin was too narrow was easy to demonstrate. The Herald comes to us in blanket sheets unfolded. We must iold and gather the different sheets, filled with advertisements and gush, as If we were making a book. We have to get around at 4 o'clock every morning in the year, rain or snow or shine, to do this. The other papers, which allow larger margins, have superior machinery, and come to us in more convenient shape, and yet we arç delayed regularly in deliver ing those other papers because of this work. We must go around and deliver the papers or hire it done. We must also pay our car fare out of the margin. Still at a half cent we manage to live, but when it came to re ducing the margin to one third we coulc not stand It. On one well established news stand taking 256 momlng^papers a day, the margin on the sale of them is $1.25. On auother whose order is 294 papers, the mar gin is $1.43. We pay all the expenses out of this. 'I o show what proportion of this comes from the Hearlds , we have only to say that the margin on the sum invested that is allowed by the Nun and the Tribane is 50 per tent.; the World , 23>$;the Time », 24)^; the Herald, 17. It must be remem bered that this percentage is good only when all the papers are sold—something that never ' The worst of it is that more Herald cus tomers beat us out of our subscriptions than all the rest of our customers combined. Every uewBdealer knows what kind of peo pie read the Herald exclusively. In the face of this the Herald announced in one column yesterday that newsdealers wauted to make 225 per cent, on the Heralds sold. In an other column It said we wanted 88 per cent. The Herald says we are opposed to the re duction in the price to the public. This is not true. We know that really cheap news papers make increased numbers of newspa per readers. What we want is merely the fair per cent, of profit which other papers allow. Why should we do more work for the Herald at less pi y than we receive for other papers ? The money made by the ma jority of newsdealers does not exceed that made by common unskilled labor. The Herald of yesterday Raid that its cir culation was unabated. The newsdealers know this is untrue. They buy, in many less than half *a many M they did. > not like to sell the paper even at SO three cents. We ask the public to simply ascertain the facts in this controversy. We can rest con* tent on the judgment that must follow. BI-CKNTKNNIAL. The German Célébra October ttth to 9tli, 1883.

SHERIFF THE FIGHT PROVES ALMOST A FIZZLE. TOO SHORT TO BE A TEST. And Too Ml Id to Suit the Savage Specta tors It Ends In a Draw at the End of the Seveuth Round. New York, Oct. 2. —The long-talked of glove fight between Charles Mitchell and William Sheriff took place to-day at Flush ing, L. I., and ended in a draw. The con tent was according to the Marquis of Queens bury rules. In the judgment of a number of gentle men, who are versed In the sluggere' art, the fight, while a decidedly scientific one, did not l^st long enough to test the staying qualities of either of the combatants. Neither of them exhibited any extraordinary signs of exhaustion at the finish, both being seemingly capable of continuing the con flict for a half hour longer. The place of meeting was kept a secret from all the buyers of tickets. They were directed to be at Pier 39, East River, at 3 o'clock, where the steamboat "Harry Hill" would be In waiting to convey them to the battle-field. The trip from New York to Flushing was tediously slow. It was nearly 5 o'clock when the impatient passengers were landed. At 5 o'clock a loud cheer announced the approach of Mitchell, who made his way through the crowd, crawled under the rope and seated himself In a chair in a comer of the ring. A few moments later active little Arthur Chambers leaped lightly into the enclosed space and then the Prussian, after following the time honored custom of shying castor Into the ring,made his appear: nee was greeted with cheers and clapping or hands. BU«y Madden and Joe Coburn came next and took their position alongside of Mitchell, and Billy Edwards joined Cham bers and Sheriff. Very little time was lost In preliminaries. DU and OPENING THE PIGHT. Time was called at 5.30, and both men placed themselves In position and began sparring cautiously. For ten seconds or more they circled about each other, scarcely moving their bands. Mitchell thought he saw an opening then and led lightly with his left, which was neatly countered and re turned, and then the cautious circling began again. The Prussian made the second at tack, which fell short, ar«d just scraped Mltchell'ä nose. The latter made an ineffect ual attempt to strike his opponent Id the ribs, but received two quick blows, and then, while moving backward, another, which «ent him down on his hands and knees, the "Prussian's" knockdown. instant, however, and came u to get a stinging blow full in was returned with a blow on the Prussian's neck, aDd the they gave and took several hard knocks In the head and broke away. Just as they laced each other the r* feree told them-to take their coiners, the three minutes having expired. The au extended repetition of the beginning of the first. Nearly h&l' a minute was con sumed iu ovei ly cautious sparring w ithout a blow being struck. Suddenly Mitchell reached out with his lef and delivered a re sounding blow seconds claiming it as a Mitchell was'on h.s pin' In an ust in time face. This ihi clinched. For an instant of the second round was the Prussian's stomach, and followed it up with another on the Prussian's nose, causing it to bleed slightlv, but enough to give the young Englishman the houor of having drawn first blood. The Prussian, in retaliation for this, struck out powerfully for Mitchell's chest, and the clever manner in which the blow was par ried called forth a storm of applause. Feel ing a little more warmed up, the boxers be gan taking more chances, just as they struck each other a pretty powerful blow in the lace, the round came to an end. The audience begain manifesting a good deal of impatience,when the men faced each other in the same cautious msnner in the third round. The lighting was not half savage enough to suit them after paying for the exhibition, and they began hooting. Whether this had any eflect or not is a ques tion, but, nevertheless, the men began work ing harder. The Prussian got In a facer, which caused Mitchell to blink and cough, but returned the compliment with interest by pounding his opponeut savagely in the ribs. This was soon made even, however, tiy the Prussian lauding his left with a good deal of force abov« Mitchell's belt, and then they began feinting and sparring again to recover their wind. Mitchell attempted to reach the Prussian's neck, but the blow fell short, and in the return the two clinched and thumped each other wickedly about the head and neck, Mitchell occasionally swing around and catching his adver sary in the ribs. This ouly lasted a moment, and, as they weie about to clinch again, they were sent to their corner. The fourth round was fairly exciting and seemed to please the spectators a little bet ter After making two or three harmless passes Mitchell managed to get in a terrific blow on the Prussian's stomach, causing him to shiver, and before he could recover himself he received a stinger in the face. This he returned with two effective blows on Mitchell's neck, staggering him,and anothei full in the face. Again did Mitchell lunge 5ut savagely and catch his opponent In the ribs, and agaiu did the Prussian return this with a blow in the face. Up to this .time advantage with any result, and the crowd—grown rath r noisier—began givir.g all sorts of ad vice. Mitchell smiled as though he intended to do something, but just as he led off for the Prussian's chest time was up and the round euded. The fifth round was an exhibition of savage slugging nearly all the way through. Soon after they started the boxers got to close quarters and gave it to each other right and left. Odcc the Prussian delivered a terrific under cut, catching Mitchell in the chin, but almost immediate!v afterward he was turned around and nearly knocked off his feet by a blow in the side of the head. Slight signs of exhaustion were evident in Mitchell when he came up for the sixth round. He ing his neither man had followed up smiling, but did not strike as quick as beiere, while the Prussiau looked more dogged aud resolute. Mitchell succeeded once in forcing his op ponent against the rope, but was in turn pressed wickedly punished and neck, wild with that the fight should go on, although the stipulated six rounds had been fougbt, and, in obedience t > this demand, the each other again, began delivering body blows In the hope of knocking Mitchell's wind, but he almost lost his own breath by a tremendous crack in the ribs. The latter half oi the round constated mainly of ha-d, savage hitting, without much guarding, and when the ref eree announced that time was up and the , the crowd insisted that the should continue until as ha»-d back himself and about the The spectators were then excitement, and Insisted then face faced The Prussian at once Bffhl meu . one succumbed. Chambers was willing for his man to go on but Madden objected. Referee Hill then announced that the fight was a draw, but that Mitchell had the best of It In the sixth round.
