Two Exciting Games Played by the Hoosiers
GENERAL BASEBALL NEWS OP THE DAT
And still once more the victory Is on the
side of the Pittsburg ball team. They beat
the Chicago yesterday, knocking Gnmbert
ont of the box. Cleveland and Indianapolis
played two great games, one being a tie,
with the score 1 to 1. Boston and New York
each won. Shortstop Lyons, of the Dayton
club, brutally assaulted an umpire and was

Chicago. August 22. The most satis
factory thing about to-day's ball game, so
far as the Chicago club is concerned, was
the gate money. There was a big crowd out,
but it did not see much lively ball playing.
The Pittsburgers baited in fine style and
came pretty nearly lifting two of their
fellow-townsmen out of the box. Gumbert
lasted for the first two innings and then
"Long John" Tener began to serve the ball.
The change did not seem to improve matters
any, for when the visitors wanted runs they
sort of pulled themselves together and got
them by hard, clean hitting. Morris was
effective at times, but it was a great wonder
that he was not batted all over the west
division. He pitched a slow, easy ball,
which looked as big as a fish basket. Ryan,
Anson and Barns touched him np rather
freely, bat the rest of the team were unable to
do anything with his peculiar delivery.
MADE A GOOD STABT.
The visitors took a long lead in the first
Inning and were never headed. They were not
even pushed. A battery error, singles by Rowe,
Beckley, Fields and Iianlon, errors by William
son, Burns and Gnmbert and a screaming old
drive for a base by lnsty Fred Carroll, gave
them six runs only three of which were earned.
In the fourth Morris made a base bit and
nearly dropped dead. He was carried to sec
ond on Carroll's good single ana then both run
ners were driven over the plate by the mighty
Beckley who smashed the ball hot and furious
to the; right field. Kuehne opened the fifth
with a terrific drive Into the carriages for a
home run. He was loudly cheered as he
crossed the plate. In the seventh Sunday made
the circuit of the sacks on a base on balls, a
sincle by Kuehne, a sacrifice by Dunlap and
Darling's muff of a thrown ball at the plate.
Rowe,Beckley and Fields were retired on three
pitched balls in the eighth. After Hanlon had
been retired in the ninth Snnday got his base
on calls and went to second on a safe drive by
Dunlap past Toner's bead. He then started to
BA1DHEADED DELI. DARLING
made a very unhappy throw, the ball barely es
caping entering the bowels of the Congress
street bleaching boards. 1 his little pleasantry
on the part of the nut-brown backstop gave
Pittsburg their eleventh run, Sunday crosing,
the plate npon his stomach and amid exultant
cheers from the stands. The Chicagos began
- la score in the second inning, when Darling,
who had got his base on -WK and Burns, who
had made a cracking good hit to right, were
driven across the plate on a pretty single by
Ryan over Emperor 'William's head. Anson
made a safe hit In the third inning, but became
involved in a double play, which not only re
salted disastrously to himself but to Pfeffer as
well. Williamson opened the fourth inning
with what appeared to prettv nearly everybody
a safe hit along the left field foul line. Old
man Anson, who was running for the big short
stop, hoisted most of his back upon his should
ers and started around the baes at a furious
gait He was called home by Umpire Lynch,
who said the hit was foul, and a roar of indig
nation burst from the stands. Old Anson came
loping across the diamond with his hat in his
hand. His face was red. He puffed up his
cheeks and roared.
LTNCH SETTLED ANSON.
Lynch waved a whisk broom at him and then
he subsided. Williamson struck out a moment
later. The home team scored two unearned
runs in the fifth on Van Haltrcn's hit, which
caught Ryan at second, a muff by Hanlon ot
Dutfv's short fly and a single by Anson. Ryan
and Van Haltren hit safely In the seventh, but
neither scored. In the eighth Darling got his
base on balls after two men were out and scored
on singles by Burns and Tener. When the
Chicagos came in to hat in the ninth Anson in
formed them individually and collectively that
he wanted six runs. The people in the stands
did not seem to think that this had anything to
do with the case and with great unanimity be
gan filtering through the gate Into the glad
some sunshine without. Van Haltren was
quietly disposed of by Dunlap andBeckloy, and
the latter gentleman, with the kind assistance
ot his aggravated hands, trapped Daffy's high
foal. Anson got his base on balls, Pfeffer
made a base hit and both w ere advanced a base
on a wild throw by Dunlap. Then Williamson
brought both runners home with a high, gal
loping grounder over the center bag. These
were all the runs the Chicagos got. They
might have got more if Umpire Lynch had not
called Darling out on strikes, but as Umpire
Lynch chose this method of hanging sinkers
on old Anson, the people streamed out into the
streets with hard, rigid lines in their faces.

He Think He'll Beat Gandanr Arrange
ments for the Race.
fSFECIAt, TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATtJH.1
McKEESrojtT. August 22. "Everything Is
arranged now, and I will row Gandaur on the
McKeesport course September 13 in a fine new,
Ruddock boat, and mean to defeat him; then I
will challenge the winner of the Searle-O'Con-nor
race and bring the championship of the
world back to America," said John Teemer this
evening to your correspondent. Teemer was
sincere and as confident as one could be. He
was happy and f nil of life, apparently so, as he
feels that there is now no chance for draw
backs in reference to the proposed race. He Is
as brown as an Indian, and with his sparkling
eyes and fresh, healthy appearance be resem
bles a gladiator. Teemer commenced hard
training to-day, and will stick to it steadily for
three weeks under instructions of Evan Davis,
who is a life-long trainer of oarsmen, wrestlers
and sprinters and understands the business.
He has located his headquarters on the Yongb
loghcny river, near Hoar's distillery, where
Teemer has a boathouse, and Gandaur, who
will come here two weeks before the race takes
Elace, will be located at the Reynold's boat
oase on the same stream at the foot of
The new boat which was built by Ruddock
will arrive at Pittsburg early next week. It is
built of cedar and is 31 feet long, HJi inches
wide, 67 Inches spread, with 6 inches stretch,
6 inches deep, 2S inches slide and weighs be
tween 26 and 27 pounds. Business men will
subscribe the expense money lot Gandaur as
an immense delegation of people will come
here to see the great race, McKeespprt is ex
cited over the event and will do all that is
possible to make it pleasant for the
many people who are expected to be present.
Teemer has already received word from
prominent people from many points who
Biznify intentions of being present, and has
arranged with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad
Company for excursion rates from all points
into the city. He will also arrange the same
with three other railroads entering the city.
The outlook is good for the event to prove a
grand success, and the oarsman and his back,
ers and friends are brightened up by it. The
steamer Elizabeth will bring the pleasure boat
Mayflower to the city on the day of the race
loaded down with visitors, and it and several
other boats will be located along the course,
which will commence at the foot of Market
street, and will extend down the Monongahela
river two miles toward Demmler. and
with a turn will complete the four-mile
course, which has, by the leading oarsmen,
been jironounced one of the best. A rise in the
river in September and rough water Is some
thing very rare and is not apprehended. There
fore Teemer feels that the only two obstacles
that could arise to cause a postponement of tbe
race will be avoided, and he calculates that the
race is now a sure thing, and is all the more
E leased In consequence. The Pittsburg
itsPATCH will be tbe stakeholder, and if those
interested fail to select a, referee a week be
fore the race, when the final deposit is to be
put np. the stakeholder will make the selec
tion. It is now estimated that 10,000 people will
line the river banks to witness this race on

McKiEsrOET, August 22. McKeesport
and Duquesne played two championship
games here to-day, they being games which
were scheduled for August 2i and Septem
28, but were transferred by mutual agree
ment to to-day. McKeesport won both
games easily, as the Duquesnes could not
bat Phillips, McKeesport's new "phenom,"
who pitched both games. In tbe last game the
visitors only got two hits, and were not in the
game after the first inning.
McKeesport is now in good shape again and
will most likely keep their bold on first place
for some time to come. The features of the
games were tbe batting of Qninn, R. Smith
and G. Smith, and Vetters for the Duquesnes.
and the wonderful catches of Vetters, Cahlll

PICTUBES BY LIGHraiKG.
A Wonderful Invention Which May Revolu
tionize Newspaper Art.
Philadelphia Press. 3
"This is a machine that is to revolutionize
newspaper pictorial art," explained Mr.
Ginochio. "It is filled with clockwork and
operated by a strong electric battery. Its
mate is at the other end ot the line. Now,
you can write a signature or a letter, and it
will transmit either, with the identical char
acters formed with your pen. But that
would be nothing new. Auto-telegraphy has
been known for fully ten years, but this
will carry out the auto-telegraphic idea to the
fullest extent. You can writs as much as
you please thousands of words if you
like, as newspaper men and others fre
quently have to do and the machine will
chew it up that is transmit it as fast as
you can write. Indeed, the writing can be
done on a continuous roll, and when a score
of lines are written, the top of the roll can
be fed to the machine while the writer con
tinues filling up the rest, and without tear
ing the roll. It can be regulated so as to
keep pace exactly with the Bpeed of the
writer; and by the time he has finished, the
mashine will be on tbe last lap and will
end its task almost immediately. The news
paper or other offices receiving the matter
will thus have it in the writer's own hand
writing and within a few momenta after it
has passed out of his hands."
"But how is it proposed to transmit pic
tures?" "By tbe same method. The paper to be
used will be washed with a- weak solution
of chloride of calcium, which will make it
a conductor. The ink will be the; non
conductor or insulator. The pictures will
have to be reproduced with pen and ink at
the point of sending, and with this as the
only delay that can be transmitted without
difficulty, every line and shadow being re
produced with extreme fidelity."
"Have you tested the macnine?" '
"I.hayexnd found it works like a charm.
So long as the clockwork keeps running it
cannot get out of order. The machine is
designed especially for the use of the daily
press; and will enable our newspapers to
produce accurate and excellent pictures ot
events in the issue immediate!" following
instead of, as now, waiting a day for the
artist. You can readily understand how
such an instrument could be applied on a
leased wire, where voluminous press reports
have to be sent daily and nightly. Every
reporter could then be his own operator."

A Woman's Good Sense Helps Her Oat of
an Embnrrnanlna; Dilemma.
He had never seen a telephone, and his
friend was showing him how it worked. It
was in his office. He called up his house,
and the wife came lo the telephone. "My
dear, Mr. Jones is here, and I have asked
him to come up to dinner." Then he turned
to Mr. Jones and said: "Put your ear to
that and you'll hear the answer."
He did and this was the answer: "Now,
John I told yon I would never have that
disagreeable wretch in my house again."
"What was that?" spoke out Mr Jones."
Women are quick. A man would have
simply backed away lrom the telephone and
said no more. She took in the situation in
a second when she heard the strange voice,
and quick as a flash came back tbe sweetest
kind of a voice. "Why Mr. Jones, how do
you do? I thought my husband meant
another Mr. Jones. Do -come up to dinner;
I shall be so glad to see you."

Atxakta, Ga., August 22. The post
ofiice sensation in this city has assumed a
new phase that of a business boycott.
General Lewis has been for years President
of ' the Atlanta Kubber Company.
As soon as he found himself in
a storm because of his appointment of the
negro Pennej, he suggested to his partners
that he was ready to retire from the rubber
company. In an interview to-day Messrs.
Chase and Co veil announced that they have
bought out the business of General Lewis.
Mr. Chase, when asked about the change,
said: "The firm could not afford to be
boycotted on account of the unpopularity of
one of its members, and so that .member of
the firm was asked to sell his share of the
business and withdraw. We succeeded in
making a bargain with General Lewis and
he withdrew. ,

record of 1:13 was held jointly by .Force

tipped to defeat Tenny, but when Hamilton
cave the latter his head there was only one
horse in the race. Swifter, the winner of the 2-year-old
scramble at five furlongs, was well
backed at 25, 20 and 15 to 1 by the knowing
ones, who hit the bookmakers hard. Tatler
won tbe last race through pure eameness, as
Sparling had tbe speed, bnt was badly ridden.
It was a very close shave, and the judge's decis
ion was eagerly awaited by those who had money
on the event, the pair being equal favorites in

cleverly. Dave Johnston, the bookmaker, who
went broke on the gray horse on Wednesday,

were perfect. The events underlined for
the day, however, did not promise very attrac

that of yesterday. Tho chief interest of the
day centered in tbe 4-year-old race. In that
Harry Noble rather outclassed the rest of the
field, but Wyandot and Ulrofleue showed
plenty of speed and drove the winner out in
good time. The 221 race was postponed until
to morrow at 7 o'clock, after two heats bad

JOHNSTON'S GEEAT EFEOET
The Famous Pacer Nearly Equals HI Own
HecorU nt Pongbkeepsle Susie S
Again Defeats the Bold J B Rich-
surdsoa Marksman Maid
Captures the 2:'27.
rSrXClAL ncLXOKAH TO THX DISFATCTM
PouanKEEPsiE. Ancust 22. It was the
opinion of more than one experienced turfite
that the third day of the grand circuit meeting
here would be made notable by a further in
road on the domain of Father Time by that
marvelous harness horse, tbe pacer Johnston,
who was to make another essay against his own
champion performance ot nearly five years ago,
when he turned tbe track at Chicago in 2.-06.
father Time Is always a redoubtable enemy.
To-night finds him still triumphant, though the
pacer made a most creditable attempt to vic
tory. Doble, who has had tbe pacer in charge
since he became the property of John W. Con
ley, of Chicago, felt pretty confident of success,
and paid close attention to every detail in get
ting nis flyer ready for a supreme effort.
It was after 4 o'clock when he brought Johns
ton ont for the trial. John Splan, els old
driver, was behind Father John, tbe runner
used to make the pace. After a preliminary
trip past tbe stand, tbe horses went back up the
home stretch. Then Johnston came fiylng
under tho wire, and the word sent him on his
way. In the getting round the first torn he
made a misstep and usually perfect machinery
was so much out of geer that Doble polled np
and came back for a second trial. This time
the pacer runnded the dangerous point safely,
and when he reached the first quarter tho offi
cial timers noted that 31J seconds bad passed.
From there to tho second quarter tbe gelding
eased a trifle, so that the hilt was in l.-03.
Sixty-two and a half seconds new remained to
make the mile in tbe desired time, bnt even
Johnston was not equal to that, and despite
Doble's help and Splan's encouraging war
whoop, the fasted watch in the stand recorded
2.-07 as the gelding- finished tbe mile. Outsiders
timed it from 2.-07K to 2tf and the officials
Rave tbe horse all the favors that were going.
It was a great performance, bnt did not come
np to the general expectations, and time re
mained the victor.
Previous to Johnston's mile Belle Hamlin
had also entered the list in a tilt against her
nwn record of 2:13, made at Cleveland in 1887.
The champion of the Almont trotters was van
quished by three-fourths ot a second, making
the mile in 2:14V. She was driven by Andrews,
wbo handles C. J. Hamlin's trotters, and D. B.
Herrington, Secretary ot tbe Hudson River
Driving Park Association, drove a runner
alongside. The mare broke just after being
sent off the first time, but went steadily at tbe
second attempt, making the first quarter in
3iK seconds, the half mile in 1:07K and the
mile in 21 most of the outsiders timing it
There were only two events on tbe regular
programme and they did not require more than
seven beats to decide both. The local mare.
Marksman Maid, won a creditable victory in
the 227 class, beating the favorite, Maud
Muller, and two others. She is a well-bred
young trotter, her sire. Marksman, being by
Thorcdale. out of a daughter of Volunteer,
while her own dam was by Chester, a son of
Alexander's Abdallah. Marksman Maid won a
heat in her race at Buffalo two weeks ago, but
was sick and had to be drawn before It was
finished. She started here in tbe Pougbkeep
sie stake, but found the company there too fast
and was wisely saved for an easier contest.
Maud Muller, wbo was tbe tip. got one heat
and a record of 221, but that was ber limit.
The 2:18 class was a gift to the sure-footed
Kentucky mare, Susie S, who showed speed
enough to warrant the assertion that she could
hare materially reduced her record bad it been
necessary, for she jogged home every time,
even when she trotted the third heat in 2:1

Freacber Maas Befused to Bury a
Member of the Jr. 0. U. A. M.
WITH A EEGALIA ON THE COFFIN.
Tbe Family Objected and a Presbjterian
. Minister Was Called In
WHO PERFORMED THE LAST SAD BITES.
Indignant Members of lie Council Hold a Meeting to
Ber. Maas created a scene at John Huff
man's funeral on the Southside yesterday
by refusing to bury him with the insignia of
the order on the coffin. Another preacher
was called to perform the service.
The Southside members of the Jr. O. XT.
A. II. were greatly agitated yesterday be
cause a preacher refused to bury one of their
dead brethren whose coffin was decorated
with the regalia of the order, nor would be
allow the men to attend the funeral with the
distinctions of the order about them.
John J. Hufiman, who was a member of
Southside Council, Jr. O. V. A. M., died
last Monday of .typhoid pneumonia at the
house of John Herbel. his brother-in-law,
on Fox alley, near South Twenty-second
street. Toung Huffman was the first mem
ber of the council who died since its organ
ization three years ago.
The funeral was set for 2 o'clock yester
day afternoon, and the Ber. Dr. Brandt, of
the South Eighteenth German Lutheran
Church, was asked to perform the funeral
services. But Dr. Brandt was in Baltimore
attending the session of tbe Lutheran
Synod, and the Ber. Mr. Mass, of Millrale,
was sent by Mrs. Brandt to represent her
husband. He arrived a few minutes before
2 o'clock and was ushered into the room,
THE BODY WAS LAID OT7T.
It was covered with the American flag
and all the paraphernalia of the order. Mr.
Maas, upon seeing this, refused to bury the
man unless all the distinctions of the order of
the Junior Order of American Mechanics
were removed, and the members of the
Southside Council stayed away from the
funeral. The mourning friends of the dead
young man refused to comply with the
preacher's request, and be went away.
The Eev.ilr. Farrand, of the Southside
Presbyterian Church, was next called, and
asked to perform the iuneral service. Tbe
reverend gentleman, at once acquiesced,
and, going to the bouse, be delivered a very
fitting oration over the young man's re
mains. Owing to another engagement Ber.
Farrand could not accompany tbe funeral
to St. Paul's Cemetery, and here the Chap
lain of tbe Southside Council read the last
rites orer the grave of the departed brother.
AGAXHST THEIR CREED.
"When the Ber. Dr. Brandt's wife was
asked last night why Mr. Maas had refused
'to attend the funeral, she replied that the
rules or their church did not permit them to
hare anything to do with secret orders of
any kind. The members of the council,
howerer, held a meeting last night in the
hall of Patterson Post 1S1 on Carson street,
which lasted until midnight. Nothing
conld be learned as to whether any action
had been taken at the .meeting in regard to
STOOD UP FOB THE FLAG.
While talking about the affair last night
Mr. Herbel, the brother-in-law of young
Huffman stated that be would not bare
permitted the flag and regalia to be taken
from the coffin, if the body had to be
buried without any religious ceremony
The action of the Ber. Maas has caused
great indignation on the Southside. The
Jr. O.1 TJ. A. M.iias -avery large member
ship on that side ofthe'river, and everybody
who spoke about -.the matter last night
stated the order would not let the affair rest
in this way, because they considered the
preacher to have been very insulting, not
only to the American flag but also to the
rites of the order.

While Looking Throosh a Telescope He
Acctdently Learns a Secret.
A certain-gentleman who, has a cottage
upon the beached margin of the sea, has
been by a friend presented with a telescope
so powerful that through it the faces and
doings of unconscious passers on yachts far
out at sea can be clearly discerned. On
a recent afternoon as he sat amusing the
leisure and idle hour which follows the
completion of the daily duty of smoking
the mid-day cigar, by looking through the
glass, be saw a yacht far out at sea, miles
away from anything to give them a
notion that they were likely to be seen, a
fond lover pressing to the lips of a lovely
damsel the most ardent of kisses.
The worst of the matter was that he recog
nized the lady as the daughter, and he thus
foundhimself in a very awkward predicament
of having 'intruded upon the privacy of the
lovers, and of having so to say stolen their
secret. He was now laying the whole blame
upon the giver of the telescope, whom he
charges boldly with being at heart his ene
my, and with having taken this subtle and
cunning method of undermining his self-
respect and manhood. Me declares tnat no
gentleman would give to another an instru
ment which cannot be used without intru
ding upon the privacy of bis neighbors to a
degree wholly incompatible with good
breeding, and he announces that he has ex
pressed this view to his friend, the giver of
"And what reply did he make?" was
asked by one of the household as the irate
master of the house laid down the proposi
"Beplyl" eefaoed the owner of tbe tele
scope. "He wrote back that he was glad
that it worked so well, and that he should
come down and try it for himself I"

Looked for a Deed to a Cemetery Lot and

"It's funny what good luck will some
times develop when a man is looking for
just the reverse," said a barber engaged in
shop not far from Sixth and Olive to a re
porter. "How is that?"
"Well, you see, my wife has been very
sick lately and it was costing me a great
deal of money for physicians and medicine.
I did not hesitate ai any expense that I
thought necessary in the slightest degree,
and the result was that I run in debt some
what. I wouldn't have minded that bad it
not been that all the expense I went to seemed
useless, as my wife kept getting worse, and
finally becameo poorly that I made up my
mind she was going to die. In order to be
prepared for her, burial, I started one night
recently to hunt ujl my deed to a lot in the
cemetery. In looking orer a lot of old
papers I ran across a note for $700 due me
that I had forgotten all about. It was al
most outlawed. I decided to see if it was
any good and I wrote to a lawyer In Colum
bus, O., where the man who gave the note
lived, asking bim if it could be collected.
He wrote back that the maker of the note was
dead, but that one of the securities was
living, and in inch circumstances that there
would be so trouble at all in getting the
money from him. I instructed him to col
lect. I got, word this morning that he had
done so and would forward the monevMa a
few days. What do you think ot that?
Looking'for a deed to a cemetery lot and
finding a small sixed fortune. What's more,
I don't seed th cemetery lot deed now as

NEW ENGLAND IDIOMS.
Some of the Noticeable Peculiarities of tho
Providence Journal. 1
The drawing and twisting of rowels is by
no means characteristic of Vermonters, nor
of Yankees in general. It is true that the
offensive sounds are heard here, but it is
also true that they belong to the more illi
terate people, as specially imperfect speech
always does, and that they are by no means
confined to the six States. This peculiarity
of speech, the one thing most insisted upon
by writers upon Yankee dialect from first
to last, and commonly accepted as the great
characteristic of the people, is to-day heard
more in New Jersey man anywhere in the
six States so far as 1 know, and is found
more or less in almost all parts of the coun
try. Again, while it is true that some gen
uine. Yankees, and whole communities of
them, drop the "h" in such words as
"when" so far as my observation goes, they
are not many.
The country around Boston shows this
peculiarity, but I hare never met it else
where in New England, and here it is ut
terly unknown. This, however, is an Eng
lish thing that is preserved in England, as
well as here, and may be met with in
many parts of the country. Another mat
ter of a larger sort than mere pronunciation,
which is found among Yankees as well as
other people, is the redundant use of nega
tives. Some members of the race in this
section are very ingenious in piling then
up, as may appear by a couple of instances,
"taken from life," thus:
"I don't s'pose there ain't nobody sees
nothin' o no old felt bat nowhere?"
"I don't s'pose you don't know of nobody that
don't wont to hire nobody to do nothin' T"'
It will be observed that both these in
stances are questions, and that each begins
with the "I don't s'pose" which comes so
very often in Yankee speech. But this use
of negatives is not peculiar to the Yankea
any more than the drawl, although it is
much more common in 'this locality. And
in relation to the misuse of rowels one curi
ous tiling that I hare noticed Is a tendency
to reverse the proper sounds of "a" in some
cases. Thus a great many people in thi j
section, if speaking tbe "path to tbe pa
ture," will have the "a" in the first word
in the "last" and in the last one as in "fa
exactly "reversing the proper places. 2 I
thing holds trne with a great many simil
words. jl i v

The Servants of a Berlin Household Dls-
missed Through an Accident.
Berlin Letter In London Telegraph.1
It was not a jackdaw, like that of Bheims,
that was the cause of all the servants in a
certain household in this town being dis
missed summarily some four years ago; but a
valuaDlering did disappearin an unaccount
able way, and its loss gave rise to much
shedding of tears and commotion. The
jewel has now been found, and all Is ex
plained, but in a marvelous manner. The
gardener was trimming some trees in the
grounds of the bouse a few days ago, and
discovered the miasing trinklet lying on a
bough, where it had braved the breeze,
snow and rain all these years. Here it
would doubtless in time have grown into
the tree, to have been the subject in after
years of scientific speculation, had not the
eyes of the horticulturist been especially
sharp on the morning in question.
It is supposed that the little circle of
gold adorned with precious stones had been
left on the breakfast table, and that the
servant, in shaking the tablecloth out of the
window, had unwittingly thrown it away
with the crumbs.
