A.HOMEBMTEATCOUNTED The Home Talent Spanks the Babies Twice in One Day. THE PHILLIES BEAT THE BOSTOKS. Games Among the County League and Association Clubs. BASEBALL KEWS FBOH ALL POIKTS There rere more than 5,000 people at Recreation Park yesterday afternoon who forcot all abont that historic gentleman, George Washington, and the demonstration in honor of his triumphs. Pete Conway teas the hero of the HccreatioSi Park crowd and lor a time his glory obscured all that cbuld possibly surround the head of a Wash ington, an Alexander or a Napoleon. Pete knocked the ball clean ont of the lot and , the probability is it is not found yet. Never since Mr. Sullivan, of Chicago fame, per formed a same feat at the opening game last year has a home run been made, and the rarity, combined with the fact that it tied the score, cansed a demonstration of cheering, yelling, jumping, stamping and knocking sel dom if ever seen on the home grounds. And Pete's home ran was a corker. He v seemed to know that be had the dead wood on Beattin. They had never met since their sepa ration in Detroit last year. Past memoirs were thrown aside and only open hostilities went yesterday. Pete placed himself in front of Beattin with a grin that betokened aevil ment and after refusing two or three decoy balls be pulled himself together and with a "biff, bang' nailed the ball fair on the nose and it went sailing into the air with the grace Of a bird, Twitchell evidently knew its des tiny because he stood calmly and gazed upward to the flying sphere. Over the fence it went midway between the center field and left field i corners. It WAS A LONG HIT and no mistake. Conway's performance en titles him to a silk bat offered by Gnsky's firm. The latter offers a silk hat to every Pittsburg player who makes a home run. The game, generally speaking, was an Inter esting one. The" Immense crowd helped to make it cheerful, and the fact of an easy victory in the morning made everybody confi dent. Conway's borne ran aroused all those to Cbeerfnlness who thought andfelt the weather too cold. He pitched also in a way that showed run-getting would be very rare indeed, as far as the visitors were concerned, if no mistakes were made. Pete was very unsteady, and gave an unusual number of men their base on balls. His unsteadiness, however, was almost entirely owing to want of practice, that is, practice in con tests for blood. Yesterday's was bis first cham pionship came ot the season, and he displayed an effectiveness in the box that seems to assure all of us that be will be frequently beard from. When he got a ball across the plate the Babies couldn't touch him. His support was excellent, and It is a long time since little Jocko"' Fields caught so well. He was out in great style, and vith the exception of a faulty throw in the first lnulnc bis work was perfect. The fielding of the balance of the team was also excellent Beattin pitched a fairly good game for the visitors If Conwav bad not sized him up for that terrific home run the borne club would nave come away defeated. Outside of that big bit Knehne was the only one who could touch him. "Little Willie banged out J SPLENDID SINGLES. V.t, j. was also weUsupported, although Satellite's throwing to second and third bases was Tery poor. Altogether the youngsters were fairly outplayed in both games yesterday. The visitors were the first to score, and tbey did so in a way that made the immense crowd weary. A host of things consDiredto give them three unearned runs. Strieker led off and obtained his base on balls. McAleer knocked a grounder to Conway, and the latter threw the ball terribly wide of second base. This sent Stacker to third and McAleer to first The latter stole second. JIcKean knocked a grounder to Beckley, who threw the ball to Fields speedily, and Strieker was ran down be tween third and borne. Twitchell came to the bat and thumped out a long single to right bringing in .McAleer and Mc Sean. Twitchell stole second, aided by a poor throw of Fields. Faatz flew out to Dunlap. Radford banged a hot grounder against Con way's foot, and the ball bounded into left field, allowing Twitchell to score the third run. The visitors made their fourth and last run In the eighth inning. After McKean had been retired on the short grounder of Twitchell, Faatz was pat out at first Radford then made a long single to center, and Twitchell scored. The home players commenced run getting in the second inning. Fields went to first on balls, and was advanced a base by Maul's out at first Knehne then made a long hit to left and Fields scored. Smith advanced Kuehnea base, add was retired himself at first Fete CSway then caused the sensation by walloping the ball, a low one. over the left field fence for a home run,tieing the score. A single, a sacrifice hit a stolen base and a wild throw netted another ran in the fourth. In the filth, after two men were out Fields reached first on Strieker's fumble, and reached third on Maul's hit to left Maul stole second, and Fields scored on a passed ball. Kuehne's single brought Maul home. No more runs were made. Lynch umpired a good game.

"' 'The morning game was attended by abont i iDOO people,and w hile victory favored tho home players the crowd didn't feel very comfortable. - 3?he weather was too cold and the contest too s one-sided. Mr. Gruber, the gentleman who was nearly signed by the local club once, pitched for the youngsters and he was nearly knocked oat of the box. He was Just the kind " of man tbe home sluggers want to meet every day. His Ineffective pitching really tells tbe story of the game. Old Gal vin was a riddle to a great extent and the Babies could do but little with him. Beckley bad bis batting clothes on, and banged away at tbe balk xn me oicn inning Strieker was so badly hurt at second that be had to retire. Hanlon was sliding to second and Strieker essayed to pot him ont Haulon's feet struck Strieker in the face, catting his cheek to the bone. He retired and was replaced by Itadferd, whose position in right was filled by Gllks. Score: pmsncBO I CLEVXLA'D 1 Hanlon, m. Miller, e... .Beckley. 1.

The Baltlmores Beat tbe Brooklyn Bride grooms Before Dinner. Bbookt.ti. April 30. Morning Just 2,260 people went to Washington Park this morning to witness tbe game of baseball between the Brooklyn and Baltimore teams. The visitors batted Lovett bard in the first inning, and four runs scored determined the outcome of the contest In the remainingeight innings Lovett did great but two hits being made. Tbe home team showed little effort at team work, the men seemingly forgetting that sacrifice batting was a factor in winning a game. Holland's decisions were not satisfactory, and both teams were wrangling continually. Quinn's catching and tbe infield work of Plnkney. Burns and Farrell were the features.

The day was cold and disagreeable and the attendance only fair. In the morning game the Louisvilles played in snperb form, and gave the Browns a bard rub. In the afternoon they played very poorly. Devlin pitched his first game this season for the Browns, and but one clean bit was made off his delivery. He bad great speed. Milllgan relieved Boyle in the afternoon and caught a good game.

The visitors were crippled at third base bv an accident to Carpenter, who was severely spiked in tbe fourth inning by Hoover while the latter was sliding in. Carpenter's injury is serious and will lay him off for some time. Burns, Beilly, and Halliday did the best batting, the latter driving tbe ball over the center field fence for a home run.

M'KEESPORT'S PICNIC. They Trim Up the Klversldo Greys Very Merrily. If the Allegheny County Baseball League has no better "crack" clubs than hose who have played with the McKeesports since the season opened it may be that the latter club will reach for tho pennant It appears to be waving in front of Taneyson, and he is going to try awful hard to capture it The Riverside Greys met with very bad defeat by the McKeesports at McKeesport yeBterday afternoon. 'The home club saw at the opening of the game that it would be an easy victory for it and while they doubled the score on the visitors they could have whitewashed the Greys had they avoided careless playing. The game was witnessed by a very large at tendance. It is expected that the best game of the season will be that to take place here next Saturday, when the Oakland club plays the McKeesports. The score of to-day was IS to 26 in favor of the home club. M'KEESP'T KV. OltETe. irhtff1 Marb'g'r.s. Good, p-1., RetzclL3-D. Miller, s-3. Torreys'n,3 rrovins, r.

Umpire Mike Maglnnb . IT APPLIES HERE. An English Authority Talks Abo at the Al leged Amateurs. The London Field in an able editorial on the growth of amateur athletics, mentions some points that should not exist such as the fol lowing: "The exceedingly liberal definition of an amateur recognized by tbe Association en ables a lot of men to compete as amateurs, whose only right to tbe title rests on tbe cir cumstance that they have never engaged in a race or contest of any kind for a money prize or staked bet What is done on their behalf in the way of betting on or against them, accord ing to circumstances, or. what becomes of the trophies tbeymay carry off in some cases by an elaborately planned scheme of 'roping' are matters sot sufficiently inquired into. "Toward lowering the tone of athletics the particular kind of atnlete referred to has done much, but he stands not alone. Secretaries of clubs hare contributed in no small measure to the downward tendency. The desire to please the public, to whom athletes as well as others must look for support is to be upheld; and it is only right that the secretary of a club should do all in his power to make his meeting worth going to see. But when, in order to show a mammoth programme, to gain a "record entry, that secretary resorts to deceptive tactics, one cannot be surprised that the smaller fry are none too particular in their conduct with regard to the sport The secretary who, without con sent places a prominent runner's name among the entries, and when called to account by that runner merely replies that he shall not look for any entrance money, deserves the con demnation of all; as also does the jealous sec retary who, finding his entries less than those 01 some otner ciuo, wnicn naa in its turn per haps accepted all and every one who chose to enter, torwaras to me nanuicapper an addi tional list ot names, the owners of which are quite innocent of any inteution to compete."
