&LaNTA, Ga, AugnH 19 The
avaanali-AtlBDta games terminated
rather abruptly, and the Savannah
Club, or three not in jail tonight, lelt
for home this evening. The tronb'.e
crew ont of the diMSNPrnent concern
ing tne umpire, nicviumu, we jeegua
umpiie, who failed to turn up yester
day, did not show up this moraing.
Fesident Proudfit was notified of this,
end was requested to fill his place.
This be did by the appointment of
Mr. George Whitlock, of Marietta,
who he ordered ti report to Atlanta to
umpire the remaindwr of the frames
between Atlanta and Savannah. Whit-
nck arrived in time and reported at
the groonds altar having been
duly sworn in. An immense au
dience a-semb'ed at the park to
witness the pame but tne HavannaDS
did not put in an appearance. After
waiting half an hour Atlanta passed
nine ba'ls across tne nonie piate ana
Umpire Wbitlock gave them the game
by a score of 9 ti 0. Great tndignat on
is expressed here over the action of
he'Bavannah (lub. Director liaas, ot
that club, was here, and positively re-
fueisto let it p'ay wnn wnitiock as
nrriDire. declaring he was an At anta
sympathizer, and it was through the"
Atlantis tliat r ea. cent riouani ap
pointed him. He fays that hit club
should have been consulted in the
matter. This morning he wrote a note
ti the A'lanta directors asking that
thev allow Savannah to name one of
her men ts umpire for this evening
as Gunson, of Atlanta, had nmpited
yesterday. The Atlanta directors re-
nlied. etuting that they had received
notice l orn neaiuuni rrouunr, tuai
Whitlock bad been appointed, and
would renort for duty. Haai there
upon refund tj let bis men go to the
urounits. tie was unwilling, oeiore
rtcaivins notice ot v mtiock a ap'
poiutment, to play under either of the
ceils as tubstitutttS as required by the
rules in the absence of a designated
league umpire, and raid he would enly
olav with one of his men as umpire.
blio will forfeit the three games, and
Atlanta will leceive the floe that the
league irnnov-s unon her. The pen
ally is $500 per game. Atlanta's
pun of the receipts of yesterday srame
was nearly $1000, in spit -of ihb rkin,
and would have been more per hus-
ceedimr game. The acsicn if ban
nah will probably cist iht league
frannhise. ' Tonight when the fevin
nah club went to t le dopot to leave,
SHVrl of tnem we e fall and created

Hklina, Ark., August 19 One of
the moet exciting and interesting
games of baseball ibat ever woke the
sleepy den.zens of Helena was the
gam today between the;Friarj Points
and Grindlers of Helena. Jt ws evi
dent from thn very first that Helena
had caught a Tartar in the Point boys,
tha firat four innings being played
without a score on either side. At
this ftage of the game aa unseemly
. ;! . u
quabbie arose over a decision of the
i. tn amwi Tim oflmn frnm
to make two scores. The same Irom
that ont was one of intense interest to
,ae crowd, who would on the smallest
K.vochtion throw up their hats and
yei vn.ifrtrousiy. The game was
playd to a finish with a ecore of 8 to
7 in vnr ni tha Friars f oinls. Ar
rangeminte have been completed to

The result of yeeterday'd game be
tween Kashvilit and Mempbis was a
tie. a result that miirht have been
averted but for a rank dOiision of
Umpire Meritt. In the seventh in-
ninir. with the bases full. Sromrhton
cent a bet liner in the direciiun of
third base, which struck the. ground
inside tne fuul line and sped oui to left
fidid, Sneed and Andrews tearing but
Merritt declared ttie bit "icui" ana
sent the men back to their bases. At
other points of the game Merritt also
made aecitions against tne nome nine
in which he was clearly "off," but the
other side suffered about equally with
onra in this rest ect. and but 'for the
two runs lost as above described
Mr rritt evened things no with impar
tial discrimination. It'tia blessing for
Merritt that he did not go as directed,
to umpire the Savannah- Atlanta gamer
There wouldn't have been enough of
him left to indicate where the execu
tion had occurred
Bob Black surprised his friends by
pitching an excellent game, a better
Same man Jttiier pitcnea, as is.evi
enced by the fact that no earned runs
were made off him, while Baker was
nonnded for two. The Mikado is avi
dently not at himtelf, suffering from a
tore finger, bnt he gave very satn.'ac-
tory evidence that, though somewhat
j&Htignred, be is still in tne diamonu
The game was a nip and turk cod
test all tne way throusn. first mem'
nhia led. then Nashville, then Mean'
nh led strain for half an inning, then
a tie, and in that .shape it ended. It.
was a better game, however, than the
score would indicete, both pitchers
being hit freely, but good fielding pre
vents g base getting. Broughton
especially distinguished himself by
eorae brilliant workio lelt field, white
Graham and Sneed also took in a puir
of beauties. McSortcy and Bittrnao
both failed lo play up to their usual
level, and made errer upoo top of
error. It is n t unlikely that if tfitt
man had not fumblud en many balls
Mempbis u.ig jt have auslained a de
feat. McSoriey'a tnan, howrver,
were more than ;cmptLHtea
for by brilliant work at ether
times. In the second inninf heshowed
a coil besd and a sure hatW. Bittman
was at thiid, when Baker get in chase
between first and second. MoSorley
held the ball and made several feints to
throw to firs". Bittman kept edging
toward the p'ate and wheo AlcSorley
got him whre he wanted him, he de
livered the bail to Fui-elbach in ample
time to retire Bittman, who had made
break for home. Mcdorley also made
some splendid stops of red hot linf"8
f ufselbach caught a good game, bt
with his usual bad luck all bis errors
were costly. Two paesed bells: are
charged against him, each ot which
coet a run.
The tie will be played off today and
Memphis has a morijr8 on the game,
becaaw Edward K'jooff will twirl the
sphere lor me iocau. rue nasn vines
will probably -present Dundon and

Friars Point. Miss., August 17.
The second of the series of games cf
baseball between the Friars Point
B'ues and the Leland-Greenvllle Com
bination Baseball Club for the cham
pionship of the Ya.oi delta, was t)
nave been played on the ltith inettnt
at Greenville, but resulted in "no
game." But fjr the fact that the
tireenviiies were neaien so uajty
here on the 10th instant by the ecore
of 24 to 13, they would not have triid
to run in a proferiinal pitcher on our
club. Daring the hnt inning our
club discovered in their pitcher a pro
feesional, and deatred to quit, but wure
told the game would be c aimed 9 to 0.
In justice to toe Da:Kers ot tne u.uei,
both in Greenville and fr jm our town,
they offered to fii-Uh the game if the

d.d not know him. and ni i'hi r did
maloritv of the citizens of Greenville,
Finally it leaked out that be had been
"a resident for three or fonr days, and
waa to be for several days mora." Our
clnb then decided to pro ongthe game
until after dark, and make it a drawn
game. While all this was going on
four or five irentlemen got up a purse
of 11000. and offered to bet it on tin
Blues, conditional that Hutchison was
removed Irom the pitcher's box.
Our club having the sympathy of the
spectators, our pitcher pi ched snow
drop balls and our fielders walked af er
ttie nies, causing tneir nrei inning u.
& G. O ) to be prolonged nearly three-
quarters of an hour. It being nearly
train time some of the Greenville club
had to eo to the depot, as they beld
positions on the Valley road, an J so
the umpire, Mr. S. H. King, decided
the game a draw. Oar club declined
to have their expenses paid, thnUKh

San Frahcisco-Cal., August 19.
Tne steamer St. Paul, which arrived
yesterday from Alaska, brought down
a private letter from a member of
Lieut. Btoney'a expedition, sent out by
the United States Government t) ex
plore Pntnam river, discovered by
Storey in 1883. The letter is dated
from Fort Coama, Putnam river, head
quarters of the expedition, lati
tude 07 10' nortb, 150 61 west, and
was written last Christmas day. Tbe
writer reports that Stoney had dis
covered a river to tbe north which
natives say empties into the Arctic
near Pjint Barrow. The river is sup
posed to be the same as the one at the
mouth ot which Lieut. Ray estab
lisbed his headquarter during his ob
serving expedition. Along the banks
of talis river were Indians who
bad never before . eeeu white
men. Stoney alttrward explored
the Koatak river to headqiiaiter
and found it longer than
Tumam. He intended starting last
January on a series of explorations
east and north. The Itt'.er waa
brought to St. Michael's from Fort
Co.-mos, adis'anco cf 450 miles, by a
party under command of Eogineer
Lue. It concludes by statin that
Emign Read remained at Fort Cosmos
on account of dcl cito health. The
ensign, however, would accompany
Stuney in 1 ii uleUbii g j urney.

affidavit that Mr. Thomas was
of unsound mind and so furious

and tbe lives and property of others.
The Probate Judge the Hon. E. A.

rant for his arrest, and delivered the
same to Sheriff James Anderson, who
soon returned with Mr. Thomas, hav
ing boen enabled, by the aid of neigh

to come to tbe courtroom. A jury
of twelve of the btst men in Mary

lie had always been cmeidored

who revealed to him that be must be
developed into a writing medium, and

lead a good life. Ia accordance with
this revelation, be applied for admis

would close his eyes for a minute and
then say the spirits instructed hfm to
do so and so. He cursed the jury
with all manner of evil wiahes, but
soon after retracted all he said at tbe

Mr. Thomas was a man of great
