Fast Time Made From Home Flate to Initial Bag, BEAUMONT IS SPEEDY. Center Fielder of the Pirates Mates 'JO Foot Sprint la Three Seconds Dobfcs and llarley Little Slower. Cincinnati, Aug-. 6. With the aid of a stop watch, the difference in the speed of ballplayers, from the home plate to first base, was definitely determined during' yesterday's game. There exists a great deal of interest among the baseball enthusiasts on this question. Below Is given a table of the time made by the members of the Cin cinnati and Pittsburg teams, from the plate to first base. Beaumont, the center fielder of the Pirates, was by far the fastest man on the field in this 90-foot sprint. He cov ered the distance in exactly three sec onds in the third inning. This Is a re markable record, and there is no doubt that Beaumont could knock off a quar ter of a second if he were to go for time, for he could then gage his swing so as to throw himself into his stride. It was evident during the game that the batsman's speed to first depends largely upon how the swing at the ball affects him. The time was taken every time the opportunity presented, itself, and only the best performances are given below. Beckley, Crawford and Hahn could not be timed. Berkley did not have a chance to sprint, because he hit no grounders, and Crawford's only grounder was right at Bransfield, and he went only half the distance. No time could be gotten on Iavis, either from home to first, but the watch showed that he circled the bags in the first inning, when he made his home run, in 13 seconds. This, too, is very fast time, but Wagner beat it in the eighth, when he went from home to third in seconds on his single to left, which got away from Harley. robbs and llarley went to first In :03'i. Fox was half a second slower, but he batted right handed. The time was taken from the moment the bat connected with the ball until the runner's foot hit first base. Here 13 the list: HOME TEAM.

Zimmerman and Bald Will Be Seen in Buffalo Contests. New York, Aug. 6. While the sub stitution of the mechanical for humau pace in middle-distance cycle racing caused it to lose some of its pictur esqueness. the wonderful time ac complished with the aid of the flying machines has made the sport exciting and exceptionally interesting to the greatest possible degree. Miles run at 1:30 are not unusual, but a few years ago anything of this sort was consid ered an impossibility. A race involving the tandems and relieving the operator of all necessity of watching the rider in the rear fur nishes the most daring and startling form of sport possible, and the event to be held during the second week of the Pan-American cycle carnival this month should prove the most notable event of the kind that has ever taken place. The present record on a track by a tandem is 1:49 4-5. made at the famous Woodside park, Philadelphia i:i September of hxxt year. The Buffalo race will be for ten miles, and on a record-breaking track which will be constructed especially for the carnival, all previous times are certain to be lowered. In connection with this great race will come the reappearance of Zim England's Crack It has been officially announced that the big Oxford and Cambridge teams of athletes will sail on Angnst 15th to meet Yale and Harvard at New York. The team is a very strong one consiating of : one hundred yards, Hind and Churchilll ; quarter mile, Cornish and Barclay ; half mile, Worh man and Cleaves ; mile Cockshot, Gregson and Cawthra ; two miles, Workman, Dawson and MacXangfaton ; hurdles, Grainer and AUcock; high jump, Howard, Smith and Buckley; long jump, Cornish, and Henderson; throwing hammer, May and Henderson; reserve, Neaves. The team will be in charge of Lees Kaowlea, M. F. - merman and Bald, the former kings of the path, end mounted on one of the fastest machines available this pair counts upon emerging as the winners. Zimmerman's unparalleled career has never been equaled by any other rider in this country or Europe, and Bald is the only rider who ever won a cham pionship three years in succession. BALL BY ELECTB.IC LIGHT. Novel Contest to Taka Place at Chester, Pa., Tonight. Chester. Pa., Aug. 6. A game of baseball will be played by the Chester club at the Twelfth street park to night. The opposing team will be the Tamaqua club. Fifty powerful arc lamps w ill be erected on the grounds at different heights, and the game will be called at 8:30 o'clock.

MAJOR TAYLOR TO SUE. Colored Cyclist Brings Action Against a Syracuse Hotel. Syracuse, N. Y., Aug. 6. "Major" Taylor, the weft-known colored cyclist, has engaged an attorney to commence suit for $10,000 damages against IVoprie tor French of the Vanderbilt hotel, on account of his being refused accommo dations there last night. Taylor enter ed the hotel in a gi-eat hurry yesterday afternoon. He was anxious to write a letter and did not think it necessary to register first. He found that he was mistaken when the clerk stepped up to him and threatened to kick him out of the hotl unless he went of his own ac cord. Taylor moved out peaceably, but only after he had tried to convince the clerk that he had stopped at the same hotel before. Taylor went to the Yates, where the price was put so high that he decided to go elsewhere. Ha finally found rest at the St. Cloud. SLOAN TO RACE AUTO. Great Jockey Will Take Part In the Buffalo-Erie Contest. Paris, Aug. 6. Tod Sloan will take part in the Buffalo-Erie auto race. The jockey is now a student of. Fournier, the winner of the Paris-Berlin race, who charges a. heavy tuition. Sloan is rap idly getting equal to the most famous breaknecks, training daily with the big Moors machine, similar to Fournier's. The Moors firm will pay Sloan a fee slightly inferior to Fourner's. It is said that the jockey, after having acquired the necessary mechanical knowledge, will become a wonderful auto racer, showing the same pluck and quick judgment which has made him e. suc cess of the race track. Fournier and Sloan will sail together the middle of August. Charron, the crack racer of the Panhard-Levassor firm, will sail one week later with Mar quis de Dion and possibly James Gor don Bennett, who are the main stock holders of the Panhard-Levassor con cern. Somers to Stay "With Boston. Boston, Aug. 6. For some time the American League club has been looking about for some capable business man to take the presidency of the club, as Charles Somers of Cleveland found trouble in looking after the club here while living in Cleveland. President Ban Johnson came here and looked the field over very thoroughly and found one man who was perfectly satisfac tory, but the man had too many busi ness interests at stake and could not give the time, although being an ardent American League man and one of the very wealthy rising young business men of this section. Finding that the place was hard to fill. President John son has prevailed on Mr. Somers to re main at the head of the club for the re mainder of the season and perhaps longer. Baseball Notes. Clark Oriffith leads the American league twirlers in shut outs, having four notches whittled In his b.t. Conroy, the Milwaukee hort stop, has made the phenomenal record of but two errors in 120 chances. Moore arid IXiwIirig are the only Cleve land pitchers who have whitewashed an opposing team this season. Harper of the St. Louis club again leads the National league pitchers, having won seventeen and lost six, with one tie irame. Cleveland, Cincinnati and the Athletics have made Shortstop Ely an offer. Three managers who do not regard "Bones" as a dead one. , Fred Clarke ays that the only reason he released FYed Kb' was that Tommy Iach. the Cleveland boy. is a far better placer than the veteran shortstop. Manatrer Duffy of Milwaukee is so dis couraged in not being able to get a. third baseman that he is thinking of taking a shy at the position himself. 7uffv made an error in center Held on Thursday, af ter playing 47 errorless games. Many oiifer reasons for )oor ball play ing have been given by diamond stars, and luck Harley of the Reds has come forward with one of the most novel. He says that the background of many colored shirts on a hot day makes it impossible to c-orreA'tly judge a bail. Skooer', the Chicago pitcher, released by Coniiskey to the Little Koek club, was seriously injured the other day. He was hit in The head by a thrown ball, and it is said his condition is quite serious. Of all the players on the Pittsburg team 'Varsity Athletes Coming Here to Meet Harvard and Yale. -. I ' - ' SN when Ely was secured, only three are now in the National league. They are Berkley, Donovan and Pndiien. T.ly was secured by the Pittsburg club from the St. Louis club in 181;. Powell in Line Again. St. Louis. Aug. 6. The breach between Jack Powell, the Cardinals' rebellious pitcher, and the St. Louis management seems to be patched, fur the time being, at least, as the stalwart slab man was in uniform at Ieague park in Chicago yesterday and departed with the club for Pittsburg on the 7-J6ty o'clock train. A late dispatch states that Powell boarded the train with "Patsy" Donovan feeling very urly, and refused to taik to anyone. Ills presence with the team, though, means that he is back In line.

THREE WIDOWS OF KANSAS. Only One Confesses She Wants a Hus band, the Others Equivocate. A short time ago Mrs. Lydia Peach of Alton, published the following notice in the Empire, the local newspaper: "Mr Editor: Please print this letter to quiet the storm raised by some half idiot who has been telling that I was going to be married, and by several smar-t Alecks who have made it their business to ask my boys about it. I will say that the talk is all bosh. I want it understood that when I want a hus band I won't ask the community to se lect one for me. I consider myself ful ly capable of deciding that question to suit myself." Mrs. A. Connelly, on Effingham wid ow, annoyed by the village talk, that she was bent on a second marriage, caused this notice to be published in the New Leaf, her county paper:"When I get ready to be married I will tell the noseys all about it.but in the mean time they had better keep out of it, as it is none of their business." Mrs. Emily Frier, a widow living at Russell, wanted a husband, and, ac cording to her advertisement, this kind of a husband: "The man I want can not drink intoxicating liquors, nor chew tobacco. I don't want a humped-over old man ready to tumble into the grave. I am quite a small widow, and I want quite a small man. I want him to love me, and call me honey, and I want him to make a living. I don't want to have to take la washing." Five Binders Burn. WInfield, Kas., Aug. 6 The imple ment shed of Sam Myton, and the barn of the Misses Aldrich were destroyed by fire Monday.
