SHOE CO., S&&S NEW JERSEY GIVES PARKER SETBACK Cleveland "Will I5e Presented to the Convention on Wednesday. Former President Clev eland's "boom" for flia nomination by the National Con vention Is in the hands of James Smith. Jr., former United States Senator from New Jersey. Senator Smith's control of the twenty-four delegates from New Jer sey was demonstrated bcond question yesterday when the delegation caucused while the train which brought them to the Contention City was speeding across Southern Illinois. Senator Smith's pro gramme was carried out in eery detail. He was elected as the head of the Jersey delegation without question, and the men whom he chose for the various positions in the convention were selected unani mously. While Senator Smith desires more than anything to see Mr. Cleveland nominated again this year, he does not wish to be placed In a position which would enable Judge Parker's friends to accuse him of prc&slng Mr. Cleveland for the bole pur pose ot defeating Judge Parker. It was for this reason that Senator Smith allowed the caucus of his delega tion to aujourn yesterday without ex pressing a choice for the head of the ticKet. The delegation will caucus again to-morrow morning., when this question wlllbe settled. Meanwhile Senator Smllh and his lieutenants arc active among the unlnstructed delegations seeking to ob tain pledges of support for Sir. Cleveland In caso New Jersey presents his name. "Everjone understands my position," said Senator Smith. "I should like to see Mr. Cleveland nominated. At the same time every Democrat desires above all to choose a man who will be elected In No vember. I believe that Mr. Cleveland will bo elected It nominated, but I desired to talk the matter over with other leaders of the party before binding the New Jer sey delegation. "You can say, however, that as the sit uation stands to-day, there Is little doubt that New Jersey will present Grover Cleveland's name to the convention. The twenty-four delegates from New Jersey are united for him. He is their first and only choice, and It will take a great deal to convince n majority of the delegation that he would not be the strongest man tho convention could name." The announcement that Mr. Smith headed the New Jersey delegation was a great surprise and a distinct disappoint ment to the Parker managers here. They had counted confidently on Robert Davis's absolute control of the delegation and of his ability to vote Now Jersey's twenty four votes for Judge Parker from the first ballot on. They realize now that the loss of New Jersey's vote is due en tirely to their failure to force instructions for Parker at the. State "Convention select ing the delegates some time ago. They were In a position then to bind New Jer sey to the Parker movement, but through arguments used by Senator Smith and his friends failed to do so. MAN IS FOUND MURDERED.

Cleve 3. nrowna 1. Detroit 4. Chicago l Again did the Browns taste the s-orrovv of defeat at the hands of the Cleveland "Blues" at Sportsman's Park veMerday Hfternoon. The score was 3 to 1 In favor of Lajole's Hock of sluggers. There is not much new in the fact that the Browns were bealen But the fans gained much comfort and solace from the fact that the Browns got walloped in a new wav. Usually the) are outhlt by their opponents, and lor that reason lose. The Browns slammed out ten hits off Rhoades as against seven made oft Harry Howell by the hard-hitting visitors. The defeat proved how uncertain a game baseball Is Vary few persons thought they would ever live long enough to see the Brown.s outhlt a rival team and then get beat. But one can expect anything from the local Americans. Some fans. Including Robert I.ee Hedges, are rash enough to expert them to win a game tome da And they may. Wash ington offers an Illustration of what per severance will accomplish even in base ball. Howell, who twirled for the locals, pitched a high-class article of baseball. Harry allowed Lajole's men only evcn hits, walked two and fanned four. Still he lost. BROWNS PLAYED LISTLESSLY. The defeat of the Browns can be charged to their general Indifference. "Dusty" Rhoades. a Cardinal cast-ofr, pitched against MoAIeer's men and while his pitch ing could not be classed as gilt edge it was good enough to beat the Browns. Among the redeeming features of the locals. plalng was the hitting of Jesse Burkett. He found Rhoade's pellets to his entire liking and slammed out four hits. Burkett sent the bail into safe ter ritory in the first, second, sixth and eighth Innings. Flick was the Clevelands' bravest pupil with the willow. Elmer beat two of How ell s curves out of shape for two baggers nu nuwieu ujiuiner uizzy xor a single Charley Hickman had the honor of making two of the longest fouls ever pulled off at Sportsman's Park. 4n tho fourth Inning- Howell' tossed Charley a nice high one. "Hick" pelted It against the cornice of the pavilion and that part of Hedges's property will require the serv ices of a wood surgeon before It will be presentable. Hickman then showed the fans Just how hard he could bunt by knocking the next ball Harry pitched over the left-field fence, but tho hit was foul and counted for nothing beyond giving to Hickman the reputation of miking the longest ford ever made at Sportsman's Park. FAN SLEPT SOUNDLY. The sleeping fan was out again, and en joyed a good rest. Not once during the game did the locals stir up enough en thusiasm among the populace to disturb the slumbercr. But If this fan persists !i Ignoring the Browns by slumbering while they play, Mr. Hedges will probably get even by sending him a bill for a week's lodging. The rest of the fans were as little Interested in the work of the Browns as the lumberer, but b greater display of will power restrained themselves from emulating the sleepy one's example. Cleveland wasted very little time In spar ring. They got busy with SL Louis right off the reel. Flick's double to right, Lush's Infield tap and Bradley's long drive to Burkett gave to the Blues a tally In th ui'ruiii ruunu. A base on balls to Bay. coupled with Abbott's Infield tap and Hill's error jetted the Blues their second tally of the day Is the second Inning. Hickman's single and Bemls's double gave to the Blues their third and last run in the forrth inning. Hemphill's single, free passes to Huels man and Hill and Rhoades's wing shot of Dick Padden forced a run over the plate for St. Louis in the fifth Inning. The score: ST. LOUIS.

The tcore of 19 to 2 flls the story. Mr. Blown essaved lo pitch for the Cuba, hut he didn't last long. At the end of two innings three two-baggers and a single had netttd the visitors five run. and Iiiindgren "vas substituted. But the St IjOuIs bojs proceeded to go aftir Lund gren from the jump Brain, the first man up, singled; Bji clay got to firt; Burke went out, Caf.v to Chance: Grady got his base on balls; O'Neill got a three-bagger to right, clear ing the bases; Farrcll filed out to Slagle; i'lniniion walked, but got caught trying for cecond. and the result was that three runs had been made off Lundgren Chicago scored a run in the first. SlaIe drew a base; Ca-cv sacrificed; Chance wtiit rut to Farreil to Bwklev : S agle stole thlrJ. and a sacrifice by Chance scored him. The Cubs could not score again until the eighth, when a two-basger bv Slagle al lowed Mm to rtach third on a single by Chance, and he was hrought home by Jones's single. This ended the run-getting fur the Cub. and their two scores looked verv Insignificant a ongld of the nine teen earned runs for St. I-ouls. The locals did not do nn thing worth noting. Thplr six hits were so scattered that the Cubs were never dangerous or even Interesting. St. Louis could do nothing in the fourth. A blngle by Smoot was of no avail The feature of the fifth was the home run by Mike Grady, after Barclay and Burke had railed to reich tirst. singles Dy Karrell and Smoot In the sixth earned one run. bringing In .Slagle. They could do noth ing in the seventh, but matters began to liven up In the eighth. Farreil went out. Williams to Chance, but Shannon was not so easy Lund?ren was weakening and St. Louis's star right fielder got a single to left Beckley followed with n triple, and then stole home, although Brain singled at his turn. There wa" no more scoring In the eighth, but the ninth was tlie.iuisv Uurclay went out to Chance. Burke singled to left. Grady fanned, and then, after two were out, the visitors proceeded to help the score by running In seven runs. After Grsdy fanned Mike O'Neill sin gled through Lundgren. Farreil duplicated the trick. Shannon did a similar stunt. Beckley would not he outdone and took the same. Smoot did likewise, but Brain was net satisfied with a measley single, and made It a triple Barclay did not want to make It home, so hit an easy one to Evers. who managed to get it to Chance ahead of the speedy left fielder. Then to end the agony, Jim Burke put a high one over to McCarthy, and the re sult was that in exactly cne hour and thirty-live mlnutps the St. Louis had ham mered the ball all over the grounds, nnd had administered the worst defeat of the season to the Cubs. Nine thousand people saw them do It, and they seemed to like the hit-and-run game. About the only protest offered was against the substitution of Lundgren for Brown. To finish the ninth Zearfos.s was sent In to relieve Grady. The onlv feature was the excellent pitch ing" of Mike O'Neill, who dlsplajed his old-time cunning. The score: CHICAGO All. R. II. O A. E.
