H Prrmnrnoii, Sept. 20. Johnny Ward wna
H saddened this afternoon at Exposition Park
H through his team's defeat by tho Pirates. Thero
H is at least one thing clso remarkablo about tho
H local team aside from Its winning this victory
jH to-day, and that is that It has become almost
jH proverbial hero that when Pittsburgh's chances
H fur anything great aro poor they can turn In
H and knock out all tho bright prospect of
Hj people who are striving for that for which they
B have a show. And It may tic that before the
Now Yorks leave Pittsburgh they will havo
H the gravest fear about holding second place.
H For the first time since tho gold fell on the
H wheat stalks Pittsburgh was lucky. At least
I twn-thtrds of their hits wero sent Into the In-
H field, and In spots where they wcro hard to
HJ Pittsburgh Is strutting to-night over the proud
Hj distinction ot bringing Amle Ilusle down to tne
HJ llzn of ordinary mortals. It has been the custom
of the New York scribes to use the name of
HJ Amle," when the Pittsburgh were around, as
HJ a sort of fecmakcr for a Coronnr's office. The
HJ tall sycamore of Sunshine Crook has outlived
' HJ his usefulness for such duty, and has as little
Hj dread about his person for the Pittsburgh team
Hj now as the Drum Major of his far away village
H home. There was really more danger to bo ap-
H prehcndeil from tho Pittsburgh has-beens. Van
H ltaltrcn and Farrcll, than In John Ward's pltch-
HJ ng department. Amle quit thumbing his harp
HJ In tho sixth inning, and for some Indefinable
HJ cause Farrell was spirited away at the samo time.
HJ The New Yorka arrived from Chicago about
HJ midday. They would have been better pleased
H if It hod been necessary to postpone the game,
HJ ns they had a long railroad ride. The ground,
HJ too, was In very bad condition and really not fit
HJ to play on. Manager Ward was feeling very
HJ much flushed with four straight victories from
H Chicago. Before to-day's game, in speaking of
H the New Yorks and their chances for the pen.
HJ "If Baltimore losos three gomes and we win
HJ all of ours we will win the championship. Wo
IHj nave nine games to play and Baltimore has only
Hi eight more to play. After we play three game
I here we play three In Louisville and three In
Hi Cincinnati, and I am almost positive we will
H win all of the games. There Is no prospect of a
& tin over the championship, as the games to be
Taw played are not equal. If we ascertain that there
- h no chance for our winning the pennant we
bH will save Huale and Meekln for the Temple Cup
M When asked about Secretary onderhnrtt a
Hi hi f playing one gome in Pittsburgh, Ward
Hi "Well, It would be a neat compliment to Mr.
Hi Temple, and. If any games are played in other
cities, I think one game should bo here. How-
I ever, my Idea la that six game will be played In
i New York and five In Baltimore. As I under-
I stand It, such Is tho scheme now, but it may be
f changed. Of course there is no question but
I that New York and Baltimore will be tho con.
I testants for tho Temple Cup."
I H Very few people went to the game expecting
I tn sco tho locals win with Ilusle opposing them.
I Them wcro 1.S0O peoplo at the game, and It
BH seemed a foregone conclusion that the New
Hi Yorks would wallop the home players. But It
H v.-os different, for tho visitors were never in the
Hi hunt from the start off. and before the contest
I was ended ltusle was retired to his bench and
I Clark took his place as a pitcher. The game
1 M wns not a good one by any means as far as tho
! H work of the visitors was concerned. They
Hi played bad ball beyond all question. Doyle's
I work at tlrstwas very rocky, and several other
m players mode mistakes tnat were very Ulscour-
I aging Indeed to the pitcher. The fact that
- turen errors, and all palpable ones, were re.
V corded against tho New Yorks, shows that they
HI were away below par.
I The homo team really played good ball all
JJH round, llartman vtasalltllooS In fielding, but
J made It up with the stick. Cross played admlr-
H ably, and captured everything that went his
I way In fine style, and the boys swatted the ball.
H Busto retlrvd at the end of the sixth tnnlngAf ter
eleven safe hits had been charged up against
htm anil six rum. Clark won easier to deal with
than Ilusle. When the pitchers were changed
ro wero the catchers. Menifee pitched aBtrong
I game. He kept the hits well scattered. Ills
H change of speed seemed to fool the visitors con.
H slderably. Tbe first time at bat Ward was pre-
seuted with a splendid oil painting of himself.
H Tho picture wm a handtome one, but John could
not respond with a hit. The umpiring was not
the tx't. but the apparent mlscatches were not
confined to one side.
The visitors went to bat first and were blanked,
although Burke and Tiernan each made singles.
The home players did better In their half of the
Inning. Ktenzel. who was first up, got his base
on balls, and Donovan got to first on a muffed
throw by Doyle. Beckley's fly was caught by
Burke, and Ntenxel got to third on It. f mlth
forced Donovan out at second and Htonzel tai
led. Then conic tho second Inning, and that
A artticd the argument. The locals hail
an extremely lucky hatting streak, and
sccircil tliree runs, and lonkel like soor-
lug twice that number. Hartman started

A parade will be formed at tho railway station

Wilt Milwaukee Get the Louisville Club I
Uivisvnxs. Sept. 8a President Stueky, when seen
to-night regarding the aale of the Louisville franchise
to Milwaukee, simply said: "ICknow nothing about It.
Yes, I will admit that Manager Parole has been In
Milwaukee, but he went there In search of players
for our team next season."
t President 8tucky"s denials to the contrary notwith
standing, there Is a deal of some kind on with Mil
waukee. Several vealtby men of that place want the
Ijiulivllls franchise, and Uiey can get It If they put up
enough money. The Louisville people expect to b
In iMtseball next season, however, and are making
their arrangement! accordingly.
llarnte left Louisville several days ago, and has
vlslte! several Western Leagus towns to look at
players. The Louisville Club erected a stand last year
at a net cash rnstof I'0.000, and hav leased the
grounds on which It Is located for ten years at (3,000
per J car, That Louisville will bava baseball lis It
season Is Evident, for the erection of the stand
would be a total loss, and there Is no way to gel the
Ira on the grounds esncetled.
President btucky said to-nlghl that Manager Baral
had no authority to negotiate the sale of the Loula
Hall Illrds Are Pleatlful la the Haekeas-ek
IIackxssack, Sept. 80. The two days' storm proved
a delight to the gunners la this vicinity, and they had
the finest sport In many years oa the river meadows.
Tbs rail bird season opened flush, but a storm was
wanted to bring tbs birds up, and they appeared to
rain down Into the tall grass and cattails. Here the
moisture nude their plumage heavy, and the gunners
required only ordinary skill, with a good "pusher"
for ths boat, to Insure a big siring of birds. Hundreds
of birds were brought In during the down pour yester
day, ths string s ranging from elht to thirty-seven.
Dr. W. W. Curry of This town holds the trip record.
This string was taken la four hours, which Is the
average Urns devoted to one trip. Kx Senator OrW

A New Ltsgse Already Formed to Fight
the Ola Oncantaatlon,
I'lTTsncnoit, Sept. CO. Tho despatch tele
graphed from hero lost night by tho United
Press In regard to the new Baseball Association
that Is to be in the field next year, and the fact
that the National League had already taken
steps hi blacklist any player that has already
joined or would Join the new association, created
rt sensation In baseball circles to-day.
Ex-Manager A. C. Buckcnbcrger of tho Pitts
burgh club and A. K. Scnnilrcl, ex-Secretary nf
the samo organization, to-day elated that tho
new league has already been organized, and
that tho premature publication ot tho plans can
In no way Interfere with tho nrrangrments
From these gcntleraon It was learned that Ilia
circuit Is to bv mode tip nf Pittsburgh, Phlladcl
phta, Boston, New York, Brooklyn, Detroit,
Providence, and Chicago or Buffalo, and that
the new organization Is to be known as tho No
tional Association. The admission to Its games
will be 55 cents.
It Is not the Intention tn fight tho National
League, but to arrange the schedule of games so
as not to conflict with the latter. Mr. Scandrrl
continued: "The story Ii correct In many par.
ttcnlars and misleading In others. It Is not true
that certain National League players have been
approached by agentn of the new letiguo with a
view of inducing them tn leave the older organ!
zatlon. The latter docs not own tho earth,
neither can It prevent other people entering the
baseball business and stirring up a lively com
petition. The clubs will all bo backed by capi
talists and the players will receive salaries the
same as Is done In the National league.
"The Pittsburg club will have unlimited
financial hacking, and Mr. Buckeiilwrgcr will
manage the team. A meeting of the new
League will likely lie held sorao time next
month, when ofilcers will be elected nnd every
thing put In readiness for tho opening of tho
season early next spring."
Manager Buckeniierger declined timakn any
statement further than to corroborate what Mr,
Srandrel hail said.
President Kerr of the Pittsburgh League rlub
did not appear to be In the least dlsturlnxl when
told nf tlits plans of the new-born organization.
" We have known for some time that such a
scheme was nn foot," said he, "and we believe
that Kimo of our players have been tampered
Sir. Kerr admitted the truth nf the rermrt that
some nf tho National League clubs favor tho
plan of maintaining two rltilM In each city, tin)
second tn cnnslst of young players, and to piny
f:mes while the regular teams am away from

led William Dunn of the Southampton, Long

of the New York Club by 20 strokes. Davis,
who had been backed heavily by some New

dropped their money nn him. Campbell ex

If 1 am not mistaken, when I Orit publicly challenged
Young flrlffo to right ms again. It Is now past the mid
dle of September, and up to the hour of writing this
challenge neither ths Australian wonder nor his
backer has reiponded to my trumpet call to do bat
tle. Therefore, I sgaln find It necessary to toot my
whittle. I am not btufllngs I am not seeking notoriety
to aid me In some theatrlal venture; I mean business;
1 am anxious to fight no one now but Urlffo. I have
been very patient: I have waited many month- for
another opportunity at htm since our draw In Chica
go, how my patience Is exhausted! I demand a fight
with Grtno; I am entitled to tt. I will agree
to sign anything like fair articles. I will
post fl,000 to-morrow, the next day, or a week
hence u urlffo deslrss It, to fight him at any weight
the contest must le to a flnlih with any site gloves,
for 88.000 a side and a purse. If any club agrees to
offer one. The site of the Istter win make no differ
ence to me. In the event of no purse being offered, 1
am satlsned to meet him lu private with skintight
gloves for the stakes.
Why Orirro repeatedly refuses to roe-it ms 1 am un
able lo explain. Perhaps the sporting public know.
1 can only guess the reason why. May be it Is because
1 am no drawing rard.aa Mr. llehan is vs. which I take
to mean that I am a tar inferior pugilist when con
trasted with Grirfn, and therefore not worthy of a
right vtlth his wonderful proUge.
However that may n-, Ihave the credit of an eight
round draw with UrltTo, and had It lasted another two
rounds I would surHy have won on a knock-out.
These are hard facts, substantiated by the press of
Chicago, and which no doubt both Mr. llehan and
Orlffo find hard to digest. Yours,

Ing n Conference To riay lather at

posed to a Uarne oa Thanksgiving; Day.
Negotiations are already under way for n foot
ball game this fall between Harvard and Prince
ton, with the probable outcome that If Harvard
consents the struggle will take place either at
Manhattnn Field or at Princeton two weeks
before the Hnrvnrd-Yale game nt Springfield.
Whllo the Princeton team was at (jnngue lat
week James P. Lee, the old Har ard player, was
n visitor there, and after soveral conferences
with the Princeton men he agreed to seu what
could lie dnno towanl arranging a gninc. Ac
cordingly, le had a talk with Joseph It, Hears
of the Harvard Advisory Committee Hnd several
confabs with Princeton graduates were held In
this city, Tho Princeton Graduate Advisory
Commltlco finally summoned Capt. Trenehard
to this city and advised him to open negoti
ations with Capt. Emmnns of the Hnrvartl
eleten, Trenehard thon wrote a letter to Em
mons suggesting a conference, tn bo attended by
Kmmonsatida Harvard graduate and Trench
ard and a Princeton graduate. Up tn date no
dcflntlx reply has been received, but It Is under
stood that the Harvard men will shortly send on
If Harvard Is willing to play, the Princeton
men will first Insist that tho game shall take
place at Prtttrctnn. but If the crtmsnn plajcrs
decline to go to Jersey the Tigers will readily

tral ground. As already published In The Hex,
tho Princeton men want tn tackle ltnrvard twn
wreks before the Harvard-Vale game at Spring
field. This would miike the dalo fall nn Nor.
10, which Is quite agreeable tn Harvard mon
fovorlng the contest. The estrangement lie
tween these colleges, ns far as fuolhall
Is concerned, dates back to n limn
when a bitter feeling arose lietwrrn
Harvard and Princeton kickers, who havo
slnco graduated. In baseball the two
rollvges have met regularly during the past few
yean, and this Is being ued as an argument In
favor of football games. Harvard's imsltlonln
thv matter Is one of caution. Her football men
rln not want tntlonnylhlna that will hurt their
chances of n victory nvcr Yale, but at tho same
time they are stHirtsmanllke enough to believe
t tint Princeton's rhainplnn tinin must be recog

Prof, rilnane lias come out nnenly In declaring
that the event should be decided anywhere but
nt Princeton. If a game with Harvard Is ar
ranged, the date of the Princeton-Pennsylvania
enntrst will have to come much earlier than
usual, probably the last of October. Harvard's
twn yeani' contract with Pennsylvania expires
after this fall and will not bo renewed. ale's
refusal tn play Pennsylvania again will prnbably
remit In n triple league, cnmimsed of Harvard,
nle, and Princeton, to take effect next year.
New Haves. Sept. SO. Thero seems tn be noth
lnesettled regarding the ThanksgtvlngDay game
with Princeton at New Ynrk, Capt Dinkey was
fnund at the New Haven House, where he and
the Yale football players are stopping prior to
the niMinlng of college. Jle was asked If any ar
rangements hod becn'made for the Princeton
game, and, In reply, said :
" I have not seen a Princeton man In three
months. I will neither confirm nor deny Uie
rumor that we will not rUy Princeton on
Thnnkglvlng Day in New ork."
When pressed, Hlnkey admitted that the
game came very close on the Harvard game at
Hpringfleld, and Intimated that Yale would
make an effort to have It played on some other
date. It Is the general opinion of the alumni
here that the u&uie should be played either be
fore or some time after the Harvard game. The
matter will be settled at a meeting of the Inter
collegiate Football Association to be held Oct. S.

The Department Hatlafled that They Are
Deep Kaough for the New Nblpa.
Washikoton, Sept, 'JO. There is nn alarm at
the Navy Department over the published state
ments that the Uovernmcnt dry docks nt various
naval stations are of insufficient size tn contain
the new war ships, which must be frequently
docked In order that their hulls may lie kept
freo from corrosion and speed-reducing
growths. It was claimed among other
things that the New York could bo
floated into but one Government dry
dock, and then only at the maximum spring
tide and after sho had been lightened by re
moval of coal and other heavy stores. Tho argu
ment was also advanced that the New Ynrk,
once In dock, would be compelled to stay there
for n month waiting for another spring tide tn
float her out again, but the New York herself
demolished the argument by floating nut at nr
nrdtnary high tldo without thv slightest diffi
culty. Officials, familiar with the docking facilities
of the navv. declare that the depth nf these.
docks has always been determined by the draft
of the vessels comprising the navy and by the
depth of water at the entraucea to thu harbors
In which they are situated. When the stone
ducks at Norfolk and Iioston were built In lH.'M
no ships In tho navy drew over 'J3 feet of wutcr,
and the docks were made aft feet tl inches deep.
The stone dock at New York, built twuncy years
later, hud tho sutne depth, and the wooden dock,
built at the same place only a few year ago.
was made only six inches derjier. The new duck
now under construction In Now York will have
a depth of twenty-eight feet, the new one at
Puget Hound will havo thirty feut, and the one
at Port Iloyul, S. C. will have only twenty-six
feet, these figures being governed by the actual
depth nf water 111 the harbors. The dock at
Mare Island Is twenty-eight feet deep, and the
on tu ho commenced next year at New Orleans
will have to bw provided with an entrance- gate
to keep nut a depth of forty-two fee: of the Mis
sissippi Itlver flotsls.
All these depths refer In the menu annual
high tides, being the averago fur every' dey fur a
long period of years. Naval officers declare that
comparisons with llrltitli dry docks are worth
leas.ua ull measurements uf thiwu ducks are
given for maximum spring tides, nnd, besides.
the Iltitlsh harlmrs are deetivr. Tho dock at
Portsmouth Is called the "deep dock." und Is
41H fret deep at spring tide. At Chatham
the dock la :i'J feet, but it would
lie absurd for thu United States to
go to the expense nf building an deep a dock at
New York when vessels of thirty-two feet tlraf t
could tint cuter the barlmr. At present tho
maximum draft uf American men-of.war Is
twenty-seven, feet, and It Is not hetirved that
deeper vessels will hereafter be designed for the
Government, but the tendency will lie toward
smaller ship- w hlch ran enter mora ot the har

'Here they were taken In hand by llftynr

" Fnr the sheared sheep tho worst nf their

" The channel was as long as a rope walk, there

not aquatic in taste mid habits, but tho vtlo

a forlorn assemblage Indeed.
"As soon ns the shtcsji were quite dried

have had to dip and shear their sheep on their

Mr. I M. Davis of Prnsacola has a pleasant
suburban home uu the shore of ilayou Uhlco,
lust Iwyond the southwestern limits of the city.
During thu warm season his brother, Mr. Clint
P. Davis, with his wife, ha resided there also.
Last Sunday Mr. C. F. Davtsand his wife went
fur a stroll along the bayou beach, and were not
out long before thev discovered a huge alligator
In a grassy cove not far from the bouse. Mr.
Davis hastened to the housu for a rifle, and a
few moments after sent a big ball crushing
through the ugly monster's head. Inflicting a
wound that made the beast furious. He leaped
lutu the air and sprawled into the grass and
water with mouth open and legs outstretched,
then with agonized fierceness churned the water
and lashed the mud and grass w 1th his powerful
tall. Several shots were fired, but, striking ths
scaly hide, glanord oft without effect.
Altera wTillu the saurian quieted somewhat, t
and the tan gentlemen entered a rowboat with
a rope and attempted tn lasso the fellow, but ths
moment the line settled about him he mode a
break and tore the fetters asunder. Jerking tha
twu young men who held the line on shore flat
on their fares and badly bruising them. With
maddened fury the Immense saurian then at
tacked the occupants of the boat. Mr. Clint
D Is was leaning over at the bow, pushing with
an oar. when suddenly, with glaring eyes, ths
' minister quickly advanced, and while the ladles
screamed with terror and the men stood par
, alyzrd with fear, the awful, gaping fans
' snapped together within a few Inches of Mr.
1 Hails' head, and. after nearly upsetting ths
i bniit, the alligator disappeared In deep water.
I The pain of hi wounds anon brought blm to
, thu surface again, ami he sought a grsaty retreat
un the other side of the bayou. A shotgun was
! now brought lntu use. and the attack waarc
i new ed by the Messr. Dot is, who crossed lu their
I boat to the other side. The fusillade soon put
: out the monster' eves, and, gaining the shore,
i he tore great holes in the sand and knocked up .
mall bruihe and stump by the roots. Hut ths '
men hail blm out of hi element, and he waa
conquered. Then tying a rope around him. they
triumphantly towed him aero and hauled the
big carcass out on the beach. "
