ij& UiiCA, Aug. 35, For sotcrnl years past
Hf the local trotting association horo has ondcnv-
J ered to maintain Its former standard among
I ths members ot th Grand Circuit. Rutench
I mimd hs 6en a gradual decline, principally
I M iuMd by tho rlvalrr ol Western tracks. Bomo
I I r the best stables return West from Iloohos-
j I ter. Added to this disadvantage, Utica has
H suffered this year by tho contemporary moot-
ins ot Poucnlcecpsle, where the purses woro
equally large and the track considerably hot
'I ter. Chloago, too, carried away some of tho
I ftar performers. Including Budd Doble's string.
I bseldes Prince 'WllkeB. Clingstone LorettaK.
I Itella 0., and other good ones. As a result ot
H thM combined opposing forces, the Holds
H hew hava been unusually small, nnd onlr n tow
1 of the events are worthy ot special mention.
I The original entry list contained ninety-six
U'i names, but only about fifty horees came to
1 compete In the eleven races scheduled. As tho
Ml last straw to the load of misfortune, tho
l weather va cold and cloudy, with occasional
1 rain, for three days, and It was only on Friday
that the temperature was high enough to ren
der iehteeln from the Brand stand nnd
quarter stretch In any way enjoyable. The
flnanoial loes to the association has been con
siderable, and it is doubtful whether Utica will
continue to claim its place in the circuit, whoro
it was once so well and firmly established.
'. i Poaghkeepsie has been knocking for admin-
I sion into the select clrole for two seasons, and,
I baring been refused admittance each time, tho
f Hudson RlTer Driving Association has ven
tured into open competition, last year with
Springfield, and this time with Utica. The
milllonalro brewer, Jac Ruppert. has stood
behind it, and, backed by his ample purse, tho
ambitious young enterprise has bad rather tho
best of it this season, though they had to pocket
a considerable loss in 13S7. The Inducement
hold out by the Foughkeopsto management
' was on offer to convoy tho horses irom Hoches-
ter at their oxpensu. Utica tollowod suit, and
also reduced tho ontrnnco too from ton to oiglit
per cent ot tho purse. This movo paved Utica
from a greater defeat, nnd John Bclan, Knap-
Isack McCarthy. A. J. Fook, and eomo ot
ttio younger school ot professional roins
mon, maintained tholr old ulloclanco and
brought their strings ot trotturs and
pacers to this town. Not ono of the
trio aboTO named won a first premium during
the mooting, bat in nearly overy cano thoy got
one of tho smaller sharoR. Bplau. who has
during his long career scored many victorios
with Ranis. Mattle Huntor, and Johnston, tho
float pacers, tho camo maro Mambrino,
fcparkl and aliostot othors with fast rocords
and numerous successes, IinB won very few
racoa this season. Since tho Grand Circuit
openod he has not obtained n stnglo flist
nremlnm. Ills promising young Kentucky
princo trotter Fred Folger has not bcon ud to
tlio form he showed earlier in the season, when
he carried of! tho honors In tho Cluy Stakes nt
Albany, and in races at l'oughkeopsio nnd
other points of the spring circuit. The only
creditable thing Folgor has done of late was to
xecuro the uocond share ot tho Consolation
Stake at Rochester last week, though tho miles
were travelled soveral seconds bolow tho ccld
' Ing's former ability. Uo was backed to run tho

kept him in the rear. This was by all odds tho
best race ot the meeting, and was the most se

and snatch victory from tho vorr juws of do
pot T. T. Id. was a muoh bettor horse on
Thursday, when he met Favonia iu the '2 :1s
class and forced her to go three heats, all close
to 2: ID. The big goldlng seems to have no and
(itondnronce. and, if he keeps right, will put in
a strong claim for tho big purso at Hartford,
for which he. too, is eligible.

keopsio meeting, whom be had beon tvatchlng
tho nerformanco of his young stallion, Cres
cendo. In the 2:37 class. He reported a large
attendance and excellent sport. The Pouch
keopsie meeting has been oarefully noted hero,
and. In spite of tho loss ot the first dny irom
bad weather, tho affair seems to have gone
smoothly. A failure would have helped Utlca's
future prospoctB. The victory of tho llttlo
rnestnut mare Bertha over the favorite, Beauty
Bright, besides Crescendo and other promising
young trotters, is n great surprise to those who
knew the maro In former seasons. She was a
notoriously bad nctor. being much or Guy's

those who saw his improved behavior last

The Till and Trill f n Orcnt ! Hull
Louiaviiitn, Au. 2S. Poto Brownlnir.tlio
"Olndlator." has boon n cront player since his
boyhood. Ho is now but 27 years old, but dis
sipation has nlmost brokon him down, and In
nfow yonrs tho champion butlorwill bo only a
memory. Ills rotlromont will romove from the
diamond a unlquo character. In splto of his
faults ho has bcon a vory popular player, and
no man In otthor Lencuo or Association Is
bettor known. Ho has boon of creat value to
tho Loulsvillo Club, nnd his faults have lone
boon condoned, but now It seems that his day
BrownlnR inny bo said to havo crow n unon
linsobiill andothor outdoor sports, for ho hag
boon on tho diamond ulnco ho wns a Bmnll boy.
At school ho nocloctod his hooks, but what ho
Uckod In loarniim ho mudo uti In tho oyos of
tho school by his orollcloncy In almost all sorts
oteport. When ho was a child marbles was
tho national same, and ho led nil his play
mates, and, Indcod. everybody In Loulsvillo,
nt this simple oxorclso. When ho was by hlm-f-elt
ho was constantly practlslne somo now
shot, and tho nolghbors say that ho would rise
bofoto d&yllcht. nnd could bo seon under a
lump BhootlncntH small spot toeethlsnnnd
infortho day. Whon tho first amuteur ball
club was organized on tho commons. In 1870,
Brownlno was a member, llo began as a
ritchor, and at the nue of IS was reKftrdoa as
the most promising amateur In tho city. He
wr.s nlfio a catcher, and practlsod tho fleldlnc
positions till he could cover any place with
credit. Evon in thoso days he was a remark
able batter, tho knack of hittlnc tho bull
hard sooralnc to como to him naturally. Ho
wni never noted for bis physical stroneth. but
ho had a tremendous roach and u wonderfully
sure eye. But thoro Is no excellence without
labor, nnd his pructlco was Incessant. All his
spare time whs dovotod to ttio tamo, and ho
would have till tbe pitchern In the nine tosslmj
the Dall to him as lone ns they would romatn.
Ho first obtnlnod real promlncncoln 1878. when
ho boenmo a member of tho Lcllose toam. n
semi-professional nine which hud in it Prod
Plotter, Jimmy Wolf. Joo Crotty. John Dyler,
"Monk" Cllne. and one or two others who
nftorwnrd became famous as ball playore.
When tho Amtrlcnn Association wns formed In
1)132 tho ilcllpso Club joined it. and the namo
was afterward chauBOd to tho Loulsvillo3.
Browniui; then played third base, and his
superior in thiit position rrobnhly nevor
stopped upon tho diamond. Ho was then In
thu iirinio of health, nnd had not yet contracted
the dlhklpatod habits which havo proved bis
i u In. downs a loiiinrknbly nulck and clean
llnlilor, nnd tlionch never a Graceful thrower,
could bend the ball across tho diamond as fast
as nnyono. Ho vvii.ivery luinlon tho llrst buso
ninii. huwevor. as ho always throw down-shoot
bulls, which would reitch the base about kneo
hlsh. Howentultor ovcrythlnc In siuht, nnd
tho nimblest short stop had n poor miow In his
own territory whou Pete wns around. So sure
wns JJrovvnlnc to catch lly bnlls that he nc
uulrod tho niinio of "KInkholo." which stuck
to him until ho cave up the position, und tho
tit loot "Tho Olndlator" took its place. In
18:j ho wns tnken tick, nnd wns several times
badly hurt by runners slldlnslnto third bnso.
Tliuso Injurlon rauio near crlnpllnir him por
moitently, nnd ho teenmo so timid ns to be un
abloto play his position. Ho would still co
aftor balls but would make only a leoblo at
tempt to stop ruuuors, und would ulways stop
out of the lino.
Ho became o bad in this ronoct thnt ho had
to bo taken nil the iulleld, and In 18 HI w.'m put
jiernintiently nt ccntio. Here ho recovorod
conllilenco in hlmsolf, nnd for two sonsons
played brilliantly, his only "off dnys"bolnc
whon ho wus roeutorinc irom sprees. Ho had
nevor let dnvni In his battine. and. In tho
opinion of cowl jtidccs. he was the host man
with tho Mick that over stopped to tho plate,
lie prided hlmsolf solely unon this, and ovon
whon at his best never boasted of nnylblnebut
his ability to lino 'em out." So hard did ho
hit the hall (lint nil tr.o third ba.somou, in
whoso direction they always went, lotirnod to
ulvo his cioundorsn wide berth.
Xot a fowwtfio crippled by him. On ono oc
casion "Hick" C'arpontor was rash onoush to
slnp bis lutt hand domi on ono thnt wns skim
tnins nlons knee liiith, and, w hen tlio loft Holder
picked p tho ball away out near tho fence, tho
other playors wuro holpiiii; Carpenter bindun
twobudly mutilnted llnirerr. His ability ns a
lint tor niiulo l'cto the idol of tho bleachinir
boards, anil to thti dar ho is the tavorito of
that element. In the opinion of Guyllockor,
us well as other shrewd juiIbps, Brovcnlnc is.
or rnther bus beon, the moBtsclontlllc batter
In tho country, thotii,')i ho lose3 much by bis
mania lor nia.Une lone hits nnd homo runs.
Hn would nover mako n siicrillcohit. but al
ways tried to knock tho cover off the bnll. Hnd
he beon content with grounders, it is beliovod
that. In his prime, ho could havo mado a hit
nearly ovory tlmo ho went to tlio plate, but
"The Olndlator" was ploylne for lon hits.
In addition to his battiDc ho Is n cre.it base
runner, nnd has always led his club in steal
Ins basos. His lees ore very lone, nnd ho used
iroou jtidcment fa Kcttlne a sturt.so that it was
u hard matter to throw him out. The only
drawback was that he would never slldo, no
matter how desperate tho enso.
In all matters o.xcopt base ball Brownlnc Is
ns simple as a child. His ludicrous Icnornnco
and mistakes have made him tbe butt of jokers
all ovoi tho country. The most stnrtllnu news
hasnootloct upon him If It does not pertain to
ball, and It Is an even chance thnt be nnlthor
knows nor cares who la Presldont ot tho United
States. Ho Is excesslvoly proud of his per
formances, and ox-Prosldont Pholps says Pete
Is tho vainest player In the profession. But ho
hnsmnny admirable traits. Ho is us tender
hearted ns a child, and would sooner take a
vvhlpplci; than nurt anybody's foelincs. He is
scrupulously honest, und he nevor failed to
pay n debt in his Hfo if he could possibly raise
tho money. Thero is not n player in tho nlno
who will not lend him money whether he is
drunk or sober, and ho never fails to pay the
lastcent. A pocullurity of bis Is thnt ho will
never tnko ndvnnco money, aud holds back to
tho Inst day before slunlnK.
Potebelones to an excollont nnd well-to-do
family, to whom his baso ball enreor has boon
n source of iireat pnin. Ho hasbecomo,so dis
sipated that hli battine rocord Islow down this
Reason, and his Iloldlnrj has been wretched.
He Is loidnc his urip on public favor, but ho
still hits numerous friends who hope thnt bo
will check his downward enreor, and that such
nijreat plnjormiiy bo restored to tho position
ho onco filled so woll.
