PVIEW OF SPORTS, KWliy Local Clul) Discipline is Strongly Needed. STATUS OF THE CLEVELAND Opinions Eesarding Jem Smith's Championship Claim. JSULLITAK'S DUTY TO FIGHT HIM. fA Talk About English and American Ama teur Scullers. MOAT) tfflDS FOE THE PH1LADELPH1AS ;-. - The weet has not passid by without a few surprises in the basetftjl world; surprises that have interested everybody who at all has a liking for the national game. Last week who would have thought that New ork and Cleveland would have taken such a tumble, and who would have surmised that the local players would have braced up and almost scored an entire week's victories? Pew, indeed, would have ventured opinions of this kind. Cut such are the uncertainties of baseball. However, the most pleasinj surprise of the lot is the way in which the home team has performed this week. The home players have completely outplayed the Cleve landers, who so far have been the sensation of the season. On paper a performance of this kind looks great, but in reality it is not as great as It looks. In justice to everybody con cerned the Clevelands are far below many clubs In the League, that is, assuming every team to be at Its best. The Clevelands. however, have 1u..n ivmirVoltlv frA frnTi, illfflrilltiM- aprf- f dents, etc, while other teams that they have faced have been buried in misfortunes. When the Pittsburg club is at its best nobody who ; knows anything about baseball will contend that it is not a superior club to that of Cleve land. I take this for granted. It is. therefore. K fair and logical argue that Cleveland is not liy any means near the highest standard 01 i League quality, These remarks are not made tvnth any disparagement to the plucky fellows from Cleveland; not at all. Tbey are to be admired for the excellent stand they have J made so far, and deserve every encouragement. Bnt one has a right for an opinion regarding tneir puenomenai success in tne way ui ticw ries against first-class clubs. Manager Loftns, who, by the way. Is a very able man and a genial citizen, remarked to me the other day that his team would defeat Philadelphia. -I admire the pluck and confidence of the Cleve land manager, but I fear that his prediction is founded more on enthusiasm than sound judg ment. However, baseball is a very strange thing. Rending (he Riot Ac'. A few days ago it was stated exclusively in this paper that Manager Phillips had read the riot act to the players while at Cleveland. He Ud this and with great effect. He stated In no uncertain tone that the severest penalties would be imposed on all player violatirg in any shape or form the rules of discipline laid (down by the club. Ho also pointed oat that poor players would be noted most rigidly. The lecture, like the one given a few weeks ago, has evidently had its effect. The team has played better and there is a general de sire to work for the good of the team. Manager Phillips said to me a few days ago: "We have one or two men whose only ambition is to make a hit. If tbey don't do that they nearly chew their fingers off. They don't seem to care about any other features of the game." He went on to say that this record idea must be stopped, and every well wisher of the team will be clad to know of It. That a jjmbre rigid discipline Is needed there is no doubt, and I don't say this without reason. Jlere is an extract from a letter tbat round its way to this, office a few days ago: "A morning or two ago about 3 o'clock a few friends and myself were surprised to visit a certain place and find a prominent member of the Pittsburg ball club rolling on the floor drunk and singing in lusty but rather incoherent tones: 'We've all been there before, many a time." As I looked at the player I thought it would be weeks before he would be in condition to tlav acain." I have the name of the writer of j" this letter, ana we can rest assured that his &word is absolutely reliable. In view of snch facts let not the public ever again complain of f the imposition of fines for questionable con Lduct,or In anyway sympathize with the vio lators of the rules. Bad playing creates a gen es! howL and we cannot expect good playing Elf the players do not keep themselves in good pnysicai condition, ii ever a team oi Dan play ers had good inducements to do well tbey are in the PittsDnrg club. So team of men are better paid; no team is more kindly dealt with by their patrons and the press, and surely grati tude ought to prompt good work in return. American nnd English Rowing. It has often looked very singular to me dur ing recent years that our British consins are bo much superior to us in amateur rowing and so .very far behind in a professional way. There 'is no comparison at all between the profes sional scullers of this country and 'those of 'England, and why it is that the English can always beat us when it comes to a lot of ama- eurs is a question that seems dimcnlt to folve. Probably there are more amateur scullers in England than here, and that would mean a larger stock to select from. In my way of thinking it looks like a certainty that when amateur sculling in America becomes an older branch of sport than it is the Americans will be ahead in that sport as they are in almost all other branches. It is also a fact that in very many instances, indeed, as soon as an amateur becomes a good sculler, he joins the professional ranks in this country. O'Con nor, and many others are examples; this to a great extent accounts for the moderate standard of our amateur scullers. Of course this is a pity, because in my estimation there ought to be just as much national pride in amateur rowing as in 'professional. It is rare in England that a good amateur becomes pro fessional, ana mis i.eens tne tuocit oi amateurs always big and the quality good. English Opinion of Paottn. Sneaking of amateur rowing reminds me of Psbtta. His trip to England to uphold the ars and stripes has been disappointing to nanyofna. He did not come out anabsolnte rrtc-ur, Miuvuu iuauj jcuMic uceuieu uizu a Sure winner. However, be was not thoroughly tested, because during his stay in England he fwas a sick man. Regarding this f eatnre, and .also bis style, I qnote the following interesting Notice from the London Referee: Psotta, the Yankee scnller, was. I am assured, !not really clear or his liver trouble. Thatlsapolnt ion which onlvPsotta hlinsctf andamtdical man can speak, fit looked well enough, and sculled ?well enough, and if allowance is to be made on the core of health, or want of it. when all right be teiust be very warm Indeed. Hlsseatln a boatls Silgh, like Beach's used to be. but in get-up, ac tion with his slide, and big wrench wlt.1 the aeulis s.t the end ofthe stroke be reminds one very much of lUnlon when striking fast. The great -Ned had two quite distinct methods for boat pulling: one was a long blow stroke in three distinct lugs; the iHhcr shorter, and polled right through in swe swish from the moment or .first striking ibe. water. Psotta shapes like Hanlon in the fast stroke, and pulls like him too. He pleased Sportsmen In nls beat with Small, who bv the way, had been rowed to a standstill earlier In the bay In the W yfolds. The Chester man ran into a prelecting booby's boat. Thereupon Mr.Psotta topped, and walled for the other to begin again, 'ir could beat the KngUshwan as he pleased, and Jractiollr ran no risk in pulling up. Still, u was Mat you may call very nice of the American or a a .Norfolk native would call good on him. The show of goodfellowshlp was not forgotten when YtckaUs beat him In the final or th ltlamonuX ftalclij resulted as might have been expected, fsotla is one or the sort who followed poor Ken prth's example puilsa Jew strokes altreinen tonsttrengtn, and then takes a blow. Henforth mill ro on polling ir necessary. Hajdlyanyor is lilltston could. Nlckalls kept I'aolta athigh respire, to that the American could not dwell rasriomcnt to pull himself together, and tfcere - ' fc cracked. A Boom la Trotting. atever those ardent and extreme ad- rs of running races may say about the gen , acceptance of their sport in all the leading des in America, the fact remains that trotting timbre popular to-day in this country than it ftrerwas. The Grand Circuit opens on Tnes- Uy at Cleveland, and judging from the success t the Detroit meeting during the past week, telnay expect a livelier circuit than there has rrerfceen. There certainly is more money now vetted in trotting and pacing tnan nas Deen i at any tune previous curing me niswry of the country. The extraordinary prices that have been paid for trotters recently assures us that the wealthy classes of the country are be coming more and more directly identified with trotting and pacing. Wealth Is a great mag net, and depend upon it -that "as long as such enormous sums continue to be invested in the sport so long sill It remain among the foremost sports in the land. It is not necessary here to discuss the respect ive merits of trottingand running. We all bavo onr preferences, but I think there are few sporting men who will fail to admire trotting races such as will take place in the Grand Cir cuit. Ir the weather is favorable the circuit's success seems assured. However, there is one thing that must be killed at all hazards; that is crookedness. The free-for-all trot at Detroit indicates that there is indeed a great danger of dishonesty and fraud creeping into the princi pal races. The performance of Qene Smith on Wednesday against Kosaline.Wilkes was of the most suspicious character, and the judges did well to declare all bets off on one of the heats. Uut there ought to be the most stringent pen alties imposed for crookedness. There has for years been to a great extent a laxity in dealing with prominent horsemen who have been charged with crooked work on the trotting track. There has always been a dread that the Ios of their patronage would mar the success of the respective meetings. That can no longer, however, be an excuse, as there are plenty of good horses and honest men in the country to day. Boihnnthe trotting and running tracks the example of the English Jockey Club ought to be followed, and all dishonest men, of what ever class, ruled off. r Onr Crlcketcra Abroad. last week I had a few words of praise to say regarding the American cricketers now in En gland. J have a few more to say this week, although they suffered a sweeping defeat by the M. C. C. gentlemen. That defeat, in my estimation, showed that they are cricketers. They faced some of the best Amateurs in En gland and bad to encounter styles of bowling LA-L..L -. . .. . 1 . ! .I.t. wnicu tuey nau not ueen accuatumeu w iu tuia country, yet they scored 235 in an inning. This is certainly good work for, comparatively speaking, tyros to perform in the land of cricket. The bowling did them against the M. C. C. lot; I mean it made their defeat such an apparent hollow one. However, it is not be ex pected tbat they would have come near any thing like winning, even bad tney mastered the bowling more than tbey did, A team headed with such batsmeu as AV. G. Grace is not likely to be outbatted bv the Philadelphia gen tlemen. However, the Philadelphia delegation needs all the credit possible. They have dem onstrated the fact that we have cricket players In this country, and the probability is that our representatives will win more matches than they will lose. I don't by any means anticipate the time when America will bo ahead of the Britishers in cricket playing. The latter will certainly for generations to come be the national game of England, no matter how many baseball teams visit tbat country. At this juncture I am re minded of all the enthusiastic talk about how the visit of the Spalding ball teams to England was going to popularize our national game there and force cricket into the background. At the time of this talk I pointed ont the ab surdity of any such predictions or anticipa tions, and I think that everybody interested in the matter will now think that I was right. Among the Pugilists. Now that the leading lights in the pugilistic world have adjourned from the arena for a while and put down their hands,orfists,mauleys or anything tbey may be called, talking has be come the order of the day. Of course, after a man has either battered and bruised another into a helpless man, or been the victim himse'f, it is his prerogative to talk, and we may or may not listen to him. Sullivan now wears the wreath of glory, whatever it may be worth, and when he opens his mouth on exalted position, it may be that no dog need bark. John L. undoubtedly occupies a very enviable position now in the pugilistic world; a position tbat 12 months ago not one of his admirers ever thought he would occupy. He Is now the acknowledged champion pugilist of the world and has received the 120,000 in stakes and the diamond belt. He may now be safely termed a capitalist, and were he as shrewd as some pugilists I have known, he would invest in a good business and retire on his laurels from the prize ring. He has a perfect right to do this and there certainly would be no cow ardice in doing it. Sullivan, like every other man, cannot always be a prize tighter, and it is decidedly within bis right to abandon the ring at any stage he thinks best for himself. The path of a prize fighter is an uncertain one, and the hero of to-day may be tho vanquished to morrow. Men as great as Sullivan have discov ered this ere now. However, the champion, as we all know, lacks the stability of mind to definitely follow out any line of policy. His mind is not a strong one, as evidenced in the way he received the diamond belt. Probably no child would talk more unreasonably and foolishly than did Sullivan when presented with the emblem of the championship. His statements to the effect tbathewou'd take tho" dog -collar" and distribute its diamonds among his friends and utilize the balance of the belt in some ridic ulous way, ere at least the essence of ingrati tude. Sullivan was not by any means com pelled to take the belt: bnt its existence is the re-establishment of a custom that used to be one of the finest features of the old-time prize ring. The belt is an excellent one, and I be lieve was first presented to the pugilistic world with the most honest intentions. Of course the donor expected some advertisement to ac crue from it, bnt when a man spends 11,500 or 2,000 be deserves a little notoriety gratis. It is a pity that Sullivan did not receive the cham pionship emblem with good grace. Had be done so he might have convinced many people that he was more of a gentleman than he really is. The latest from John L.'s victim, John Joseph Kilrain, better known as Kilrain, is that he has been out on a "howling spree-" Mr. Kilrain and little Murphy were simply emptying hackloads of red paint all over Bal timore a few nights ago. The defeated pugilist was evidently enjoying a superfluity of wealth, as he was scattering current coin of the realm right and left on Baltimore's streets. Memories of defeat were either not thought of or they were present so potently as to cause the vanquished hero to despise the world and everything In it, except a howling" back ride. The escapade was ended by Kilrain being locked in a room of a hotel and Murphy being escorted to the police station by two officers. Surely the prominent pugilists of to-day are bright and particular stars when it comes down to social enjoyment. Pbinqlk. ST. ANDREWS WOK. They Beat the Second Eleven of Pittsburg In a Cricket Match. There was an Interesting cricket match at Brushton yesterday afternoon between the Second Eleven of Pittsburg and the St. An drews team.

O'BRIEN BATTERED OUT 0PTHE BOX Jeems Was Also Touched Up Merrily, Bnt lie b'cttled Down. THE PHILLIES STEP UP A NOTCH. CMcago Wins Two Games Prom the Hmsiers Other Ball Xewz. The home ball team once more defeated the Clevelands yesterday in a very lively game. O'Brien was knocked out of the box. Philadelphia won aud stepped up to third place, Cleveland dropping to fourth. Chi cago and Indianapolis played two games the Chicagos winning both oi them. For the filth time this week the local baseball talent showed the Cleveland dele gation where they are wrong yesterday. The League youngsters are doubtless con vinced by this time that there are easier marks than the Pittshurgers when they are out to do business. "When mind and muscle are all right with the home representatives Tom Loft us ind his active little chaps have no business tackling the people who have laid them low almost every day this week. Yesterday's game was another illustration as to the comparative merits of the two teams. The local sluggers were not satisfied with win ning the game, but they actually knocked O'Brien out of the box. Nobody else has done tbat this year, and Mr. O'Brien would, no doubt, not take kindly to the proceeding. A dose, however, awaits all baseball twirl era. and that dose is surejto- come sooner or later. O'Brien has been a faithful and good pitcher, and he'll puzzle many people yet before the season is over. HE "WAS FEARFULLY TVII.D yesterday, however, and bis wildness was al most as costly as the thumping he received. Be was replaced by Bakely in the sixth inning and the change toned matters down consid erably. Only two hits were made off Bakely, but he too was wild. But just when the home team got through their hitting old Galvin woke up and kept the other fellows guessing. For the first four or five innings it looked as if the babies were go ing to tronnce the old sport out of the box, and there were loud calls for Bonders. Acting Captain Hanlon, however, retained the old man abd the latter not only settled down bnt he made a most timely hit when the bases were full and two men out. Jimmy's stock went up rapidly after that exciting event. He wag ex ceedingly well supported by everybody, and if he had not the jig might have been up. Han lon fielded splendidly, as did Bowe and White. In short, the entire nine did welL There were about 2,000 people present and they were exceedingly noisy. The bleaching board occupants were ready for a scrap with Captain Jay at any stage. The Cleveland cap tain did once or twice make an unreasonable kick to McQuaid about the latter's decisions. The crowd yelled in opposition to Jay, and that long man wholsfastearnlnganunenviable reputation on the ball field, subsided. For three innings the game was such that CAUSED INTENSE EXCITEMENT. The home players were pounding O'Brien and the visitors were walloping Jimmy. Matters were such that at the end of tho third inning the score was tied and remained so until the fifth inning, when tho home players left the youngsters far behind. The home team opened out the game In an extremely encouraging way. After Hanlon was out Carroll got his base on balls and Beckley hit to left for a base. While Miller was at bat Carroll stole third and 'Beckley reached second. Miller's single to right brought them both home. Miller stole second and got to third on Howe's sacrifice. Maul's single to left brought Miller home and White retired the side. After two men were out in the second Inning Hanlon hit a single to left and stole second. Carroll got bis base on balls and then big Jake Beckley thumped the ball to extreme center field for three bases, bring ing In two runs. In the fifth Miller led off and he and Bowe each got to first. on balls. Maul flew out to McAleer and White knocked out a short single to right, filling the bases. Smith sent a grounder to Strieker and he easily threwMiller out at the plate. GAXVIN'S TIMELY HIT. There were still three men on bases when old Galvin trudged to the plate. Jeems settled down to serious work and banged the ball into left field, bringing in Rowe and White amid the wildest shouts. Hanlon followed up with a corking single to middle, and Smith scored. Gal rin going to second. Carroll kept matters lively by cracking out another single to left, which, along with a tumble by Twitchell en abled Galvin to score. Tnitcbelf made a splen did catch of Beckley's fly, retiring the side. In the last inning Bakely sent both Bowe and Maul to base on balls, and White's hit to mid dle sent Bowe home and Maul reached third on a fumble for McAleer. Smith's sacrifice sent Maul across the plate. The visitors made one run in the first inning on McAleer's scratch single and Twitcbell's lucky double to left. Two more runs were made in the second. Badford got first on balls andTebeau made a good single to left. Z. tu rner flew out and O'Brien's double sent Bad ford home and Tebeau reached third. Tebeau scored on Strieker's sacrifice bit. In the third inning the visit ens tied the score, and matters began to look blue, indeed. McKean opened out with a double to middle and Twitchell flew out to Hanlon. Faatz'a sacrifice sent McKean to third, and Badford got bis base on balls. He started to steal second and Miller threw the ball into middle field and McKean scored. Te beau then enabled Badtord to reach home by a double to center. The visitors scored no more. McQuaid umpired well. Following is the score: PITTSBURG B B P X XICLEVELA'DSB B FAX Hanlon. uu.

The McKeesports were again disappointed to-day by the Sewlck leys not showing up, and had another game forfeited to them 9 to a Tha McKeesports are about tired of winning games of this kind, and as they have the club and grounds to play ball, they wonld like to play the games, as there is no glory in winning them in this way. The McKeesports were very weak to-day, and wonld hardly have won if the other club had come. The McKeesports sprung a new pitcher to-day in tne person of ex-Manager Torreyson, who pitched a great game outside of his wild ness. When the bewickleys sent word that they would not be here, the Grays, another strong club of this city, were engaged to fill the date at the last moment. The home team let the Grays have their strongest battery, and both teams put up a wonderful game, requiring ten innings to decide. The McKeesports won in the tenth by a base hit by Gibbons, a steal, and a two-bagger by Torreyson, with no one ont. Jones and Farrow, the battery of the Grays, did elegant work, Jones striking out 11 men, and Farrow only allowed two stolen bases and they were both thrown ont only the baseman missed the throw.

Sullivan will stay in town nntil Tuesday or Wednesday. There are a good many matters connected, with the fight still to be settled up. Arthur Lumley says the big fel low was in a sociable humor after the settle ment to-day. He talked over the fight with his backers ana a reporter. "I never felt one of Kllrain's blows," be said, "aud I felt no effects from them until after It was all over. No. I never even felt the clip he gave me under tbo eye until they told me of It afterward." "You were pretty well tired out, all tho same," said Arthur Lumley. g "TiredT" said Sullivan, contemBtuously. 'T did not know I'dbsenfigbting. Why. If 1 could have had a hot bath right then no- one wonld ever have known I'd been in a mill by the time we reached New Orleans. A hot bath would have taken the black ont of my eye.

The Liverpool Cap and the Philadelphia Cricketers. 1BT CABLE TO TUX DISPATCH. 1 London, July 27. Copyright. The race for the Liverpool cup this week proved a good thing for Veracity, who won very easily. The same horse won last year, so tbat the conrse evidently suits him. The favorite. Cotillon, was completely out of it. O'Connor and Searle are training steadily on the Thames, but their practice is without inci dent. Searle still does the hardest work, but O'Connor's style calls forth the highest praise from the English riverside critics. He has ex tended himself' once or twice lately ou the river, and then he was voted on all sides to be a perfect model. The Gentlemen of Philadelphia made a poor show in their second Innings against England's crack club, the Marylebone. This was mainly due to the rain, which soddened the ground and enabled the English bowlers to get snch twists on the ball as the Phlladelphlaus had evidently not been used to. The Philadelphia ans are good cricketers; they only want more practice at bowling. Another thing which tbey are not likely to get in America is playing on wet ground, so frequently experi enced in England. It is always playing under these conditions which gives Englishmen the advantage. A Great Pacing Race In Prospect. rsrKCTAL TXLXOBAU TO TUB DlsrATCS.1 Franklin, Pa., July 27. George W. Haight, of this city, has issued a challenge to W. D. Rfderto back an unknown horse against the latter's famous pacing stallion, Arctic, for $1,000 a stdeuhe race to come off during the stake races in this city in August. Arctic is nowraqingin the Central New York Circuit, and has reduced bis record to 2:3. making that time id the last heat of a race tbat re quired eight beats to decide, and the fact that this was the fastest beat of the race proves conclusively that the colt is a race horse. Mr. Kider has replied to Mr. Haight asking him to name his horse and he will be accommodated with a race. It Is believed tbat the horse Mr. Haight is backing is Crawford Wilkes, owned by Stratum Bros., and as yet an unknown quantity. As this section is ''race horse crazy" the probability of this match coming off has created considerable excitement here. Canadians Win at Lacrosse. Montreal, July 27. The international la crosse match, played this afternoon on the grounds of the Montreal Amateur Athletic As sociation, resulted in three games for Montreal against two for Staten Island. mOTTil,- PHOTOGRAPHER, 15 8ESTH 8TBEET.
