Dan Stewart and the Florida Athletic Club
and make tbe bringing off of tbe
battle between tbe pugilists at Dallas a very
nncertaln thins. Before the disgraceful
performance at Fhlladelphia Corbctt and
Fltzslmmons detested each other. They
would have made a bitter and merciless
fight Now their hatred Is Intensified a
hundred fold A ring raeetlsg between them
would mean a desperate nod almost murder

want to see an honest test of true science

and brutal slugging match, regardless of
consequences, can be looked for. Tbat thla

munition for those -who are opposing the
fight in Trias ran be plainly seen, and that
It may put an end to the match altogether
is not outside of reason If It should, per
haps the person who would be best pleased
would be tbe Individual who Is now called
the champion prize-fighter. In fact,
among ron experienced in ring matters
there Is what seems to be a well-founded
suspicion that the performance at Phila
delphia was brought on by Corbett and his
hirelings for the purpose of throwing obsta
cles In the way of the proposed meeting at
Martlc McCue, who recently lost a match
to "Turkey Point George Smith," at Bal
timore, was beaten at Providence on
Tuesday night by Joe Million, of Boston.

some, is not far from a million dollars.
"A few years ago," Madden Is reported
to have said, "I happened to be in Bridge

permit sparring, so I was engaged to punch
the bag in one of tbe theatres there for $100

Baltimore, Aug. 16. Manager Selce, of
the Boston, has been a firm believer in
llanlou's Orioles ever since the beginning
of last season. He won several bets from
his own players last year on the position
tbe Baltimore Club would hold in the
raee, and the result up to date of tbe series
of this season between his club and the
champions has still further convinced him
that Baltimore has a fast team in all that
tbe name implies
"Our elub," said be at the Eutaw House
last nlgbt, "seems to me to be standing
still when t.'iey are pitted against the Bal
tlmores. There is no use denying the faet
tbat nanlon has called together the best
elub in tbe League. Because they weye
tbe best elub last jear they won the
pennant, and because they are the best
elub this year I believe they will fly
tbe flag again. We seem to be able to
best every other club in the League, but
it has been demonstrated this )rar that
we are no matin for the Orioles.
"The Cleveland's are playing good ball Just
now," Manager Selee continued, "but their
work is not to be compared with that of
Haulon's men. Tbe Spiders will surely fall
down when they come East, and I believe
that Baltimore, In the losg series on the
home grounds, will forge to the front and
finish a comparatively easy winner. I am

I know of was tbe strongest in the

time deals with ball players as with every
one else. A man whe never was fast on
his feet will not become faster as he grows
older. Meanwhile the youngsters are com
ing up.. They develop and Improve, while
older players, though they may be to-day
Justus good as the youth .are g-olug back.
"Tbe club I know of that used to be the
best is no longer so. The Baltimores, with
their )outh and dash and energy, are to-etay
thepremier club of the land They nre now
iu a class by themselves, and the club that
expects to beat the champions out in the

the famous crack of the Spalding team,

to" locate tbe murderers of Lenz and to find
where his body lay, it possible.
To enable Mr. Bacbtlebsn to do this, "said

Kiel, Aug. IB. It is learned that the

crowding yesterday on a landing stage of a
number of workmen emulojed at tbe Ger

at first supposed. Divers have already
jeeovered fourteen bodies and are seeking
others. The-acddent was caused by the
violent rushing of the men on to the gang

There Is a report abroad that Buffalo
wants to get Into the National Baseball
League. If other reports-are true, so do
Indianapolis, Detroit, and Milwaukee.
Just bow they, or any of them, are going
to get into the big organization ia not clear.
There is no likelihood that the league will
be enlarged. There is little likelihood tbat
any of tbe clubs npw In it will go out.
There has been talk that Louisville might
be Induced to retire, but tbe owners of that
elub have recently very emphatically de
clared tbat they propose-to stick, whether
the other elubs in the league want them or
whether tl.ey don't. So tbe rich contractor
who has bought the Buffalo franchise will
no doubt have a good thing to keep.
The announcement is made that John M.
Ward will play ball wllb the Ornnjo ath
letic team tbe remainder of the season,
merel) for tbe exercise of tbe thing. There
isi.ot a baseball follower intbe country who
would not like to see Ward back Is tbe big
league, and at the head of tbe New York
club Ward is not only a good player, but
he is one of tbe Lest baseball generals the
game has yet produced.
Tbe out ragcous condu ct of Doyle at Phila
delphia on Tuesday cost that Individual
$300. Burnbam kept clapping fines on
bin until the total reached that amount.
If Mr. Freedman, tbe head ot the Giants,
assumes the payment of bis manager's
assessments, and be does not soon call a halt
on him, be will find bira a rather expensive
luxury .
Boston will have many a hard struggle
when she gets home to land herself any
where near the top of the list if she keeps
up her prt sent gait. Three defeats at this
stage of tbe proceedings at the hands of her
supposed chief opponent for pennant honors
is indeed most discouraging. If tbe Beau
caters get out ot Baltimore with agametbey
will be doing well, Judglig from preseut
The Senators, much to the delight of
their friends at borne, played another good
aud won another deervevl victory. With
the exceptlou of one or two games the
Washington team has put up good ball
since it has been away, and with this ex
ception no complaint against the work done
can fairly be made. N
There are still four teams ot the Western
contingent in the firtt divfcion In the pen
nant race. CIcvelind stands at tbe lop of
tbe list, Pittsburg Is third, Cincinnati
fourth and Chicago fifth Baltimore and
Boston are the only Eastern clubs now In
tbe fi r&t division A month ago such a con
dition of tblngs was not contemplated.
Big Amos Iluslc got a lively toucu'ng up
by the heavy hittersottheFhllndelphla com
bination yesterday. Tbe Quakers got him
for sixteen hits, and all but three bits pro
duced a run. It couldn't have been big
Amos' day.
Jake Boyd has a very funny motion.
In watching him one forgets that itsowner
is pitching a baseball until it has gone by
and the umpire has said "Strike," says
a Boston paper. Boyd holds the boll in
one hand and thruws ball and baud care
lessly round In a circle in front of him;,
then he describes a similar circle in tbe rear
of bis body, aud while one wonders how he
is ever geiug to get tbe knot untied he lets
it go right over the plate. His curves are
bib strong point, for his speed Is inconsider
able aud his head not much In evidence.
The attendance at the game between the
Senators and Beaneaters at Boston on Mon
day was the smallest that has been seen
in that city this Tear. There were only
750 people on the grounds, and yet thegame
was far above the average playing seen in
that city. Perhaps Boston folks, like many
other folks, are getting tired of a losing
team .
Burnbam Is an umpire who doesn't per
mit anything but his own Ideas to go. It
cost big Bill Joyce $25 to mildly remark
the other day, when ltshould not have been.
About tbe only consolation New York's
Giants get out of the doings of yesterday
was that the Brooklyn men also got beaten.
The game between Pittsburg and Cincin
nati yesterday was a rattler. Foreman
and Dwyer both did good work In the box,
and until the last man was out It was a toss
up as to which club would win.
The League games played yesterday re
sulted as follows:
Washington, 9; Brooklyn, 6.
Baltimore, 9; Boston, 2.
Philadelphia, IS; New York, 9.
Cleveland, 13; Bt. Louis, 7.

Betting on the result of tbe pennant race
is being done at a lively rate. "A number of
bets, ranging from $100 down have been
mdac in this city. Nearly all of tbe money
has been placed that Baltimore win stand
first when the fight is over, and there Is
other money in town that will be placed the
