I, if t Tlie Struggle Between Herty and Moore Yery Close. GREAT FIKISH EXPECTED. The Local Colls A?ain Trim Up the Wheeling Aggregation. THE SPOETLNG NEWS OF THE DAY The excitement regarding the great. 142 fco in pedestrian contest grows as the finish approaches. Moore and Herty continue to wake an extraordinary struggle for first place. The local National League club again defeated the "Wheeling team. Presi dent Young assigns the National League umpires to the various opening games and talks about the National League teams. To-night will see the close of one of the most exciting go-as-you-please pedestrian contests that has been witnessed in this country. "Whatever efforts may be made to ud lault with it the lact remains that a more stubbornly contested race "was never seen ou any track. The result is still in doubt and that speaks volumes for the in tensity of the struggle considering that this is the sixth aud last day. The extraordi nary persistence with which Moore, Herty and Hughes arc plodding alter each other will long be remembered by those who have seen the race. Certainly nothing more ex citing in the way of a six-day race could be desired, and the wonder is that human na ture can cold out so long under the extraordi nary pressure tbat can be seen on the Central Rink track. The time made, to say the least, is wonderlol. and if Herty wins it will be a long time before he will be able to take part in another race of tbe kind. HKETY XKAKIA QUIT. During yesterday afternoon Herty was almost compelled to retire from tbe contest. His left leg became so weak and painfnl tbat he could scarcely more it. His knee was swollen con siderably and at one time be had about con cluded to retire from the race. After a little doctoring be with great pluck took the track again and he moved along much better. In the meantime Moore bad gotten witbin about two miles of him and looked every inch a winner. Herty, bow ever, was not to be denied and he ambled away and wonldn't allow Moore ,to get another yard away from Dim. Moore then be can to bleed copiously at tbe nose and be was forced to go into his tent. Herty then made his lead into four miles ana three laps. He re tained this lead at 10 o'clock last evening. John Hughes also cansed considerable en thusiasm by bis game efforts. "While Moore andKerty were battling for first place, Nore- mac began to try and cut Hughes1 lead down, ' but the old man would not have it that way. and be kept up his dog trot until Noreraac was very, very weary of it Horan also made np his mind to try and break Howartb down, and the six men named were split off in pairs watcbing each other like a bawk watcbing its prey. For bonrt the race was, indeed, a ereat one. The attendance jesterday afternoon and last evening was very large, and the "building will, doubtless, bo packed to-day. The players of the local Players' League Club will present Dan Herty with a valuable sweater this even ing. It will have tbe word "Brotherhood" woven across tbe breast, and no doubt there will be some great enthusiasm when the pre sentation is made. FKED CARROLL'S OPINION". "He deserves more than we or an j body else can give him." said Fred Carroll last evening. "If he lnses he has run one of the best races I have seen." Of course there are only six in the race, that is there arc only six who can possibly get to the limit, 475 miles. These are Herty. Moore, Storemac, Ho worth, Hughes and Horan. It seems somewhat safe to say that Hughes will be third at last, and it is possible for mm to get a better position. Bnt every other position is to some extent in doubt. Nobody can tell who will win between Hcrtvand Moore. There is no possibility or a "divide" between them. Each is out for himselt, and Ihe struggle be tween them to-day will be, indeed, a keen one. The distance that separates them is very J at the nose is his difficulty. Tbey both are the earnest of men. or ele they could not have held ont so close together so long. There is a arge amount of money in private bets invested on the result of the contest between the pair, and the supporters of each man are feeling very uncomfortable. It is likely tbat a oO-mlle race will take place between Golden and Guerrero to-dav. The latter has been anxions to tackle anybody in a race of 10. 20 cr 60 miles, and an admirer of Golden came to the front last evening and pro duced tbe cash lor tbe First ward hero. Guer rero, of course, can get backing, and tbe race may be definitely arranged this morning. THE 2 O'CLOCK SCOKE. "When midnight approached Herty and Moore, by mutual consent, agreed to leave tbe track for an hour's rest When they reap peared both looked haggard and tiredT Moore couldn't Sleep, but Herty had slept soundly. He moved along at a better gait than Moore, and gained a. few laps. Howartb, who had also been restine, appeared, and Norcmac at once came out of his tent. The quartet kept struggling on against nature. Hughes took an hour's rest and be. too. appeared a little im proved by it Herty is confident of finishing first and Moore is determined to try and pre vent him. Herty will be presented with a silk hat by Mr. Abrams, being the first to cover 500 miles. Shortly after midnight a match was ar ranged between Guererro and Hart to walk five miles, heel and toe, for a purse of $25. They will commence their contest about 10 o'clock t'Us evening. This will prevent a race between Golden and Guererro. but it is prob able that Cartwright and Golden will run a five-mile race if the former concedes a satis factory handicap.

A Few Opinion About Tnrm From the Or canlznilon's Headquarter. rrClAL TELEGRAM TO TUE DISFA.TC1T.I "Washington, April 1L As to the baseball prospects of the coming season President Young is very cautious In his predictions. He appreciates the fact that a bitter fight between tbe League and tbe Brotherhood has been de clared, ana the competition between those two organizations will be sharp and exciting. The indications are tbat the expenses of maintain ing the League will be heavier than heretofore, while the receipts will be necessarily smaller, because of tbe division or tbe business in League cities where Brotherhood clnbs are also located. So far as the playing strength of the League is concerned, Mr. Young holds that NewYork.Boston.Uhicaso and Philadelphia are quite as stronc as they were last year, although all nf these clubs have lost several star players by tbeformationof Brotherhood teams. In place of tbe so-called stars the League has secured some of the -cream of the American Associa tion in addition to a number of young and ambitious players from minor leagues who promise to develop into the equals if not the superiors of some of tbe old timers who occupy commanding positions in the Brotherhood. In securing Brooklyn and Cincinnati in place of Washington and Indianapolis, tbe League strengthened its Eastern and Western circuit and at the same time brought into the Lieagne two of the best equipped teams in tbe country, Tbe transfer of the Indianapolis team to New York City places Mr. Day in a position to command tbe support of the best element in tbat city, and the attractions he offers are equal to the Brotherhood combination in every K articular. Mr. Young says he does not be eve Mr. Day would take back any of the deserters excepting Buck Ewirg and Tim Keefe if the opportunity was presented. The reports that reach League headquarters from Philadelphia and Cleveland show tbat tbe League will bold its own in those cities in spite of tbe Brotherhood opposition. THE OLD LEAGUE UJIP1EES. President Young Aisn Them to tbe Open Ins Games Zflcbarlas fs Here. rcrrciAL telegram to tub dispatch. 1 Washington, April 11. President Young has made up his list of assignments of umpires for tbe opening scries In the League, and the members of the staff were accordingly notified to-day. In tbe Western circuit McQuaid will preside over the opening games at Cincinnati, and Zacharias, tbe latest addition to the stall, will be the judge of play at Pittsburg. Lynch will open up at New York and McDcrmott makes his debut at Boston. In hlB distribution of umpires, Mr. Young has evened up by giv ing the West one new and one old member of the staff, and tbe same course has been followed in the East. Lynch and McQuaid are both well known and deservedly popular by reason of their activity and general ability in the most exact ing and thankless position on a ball field. McDermottand Zacharias are unknown quantities so far as the League is concerned and tbeir reputations are still to be made. McDermott, who graduated from the Interna tional League, is said to be a very good umpire, and be was strongly recommended to Mr. Young. Zacharias was educated in the Penn Fjlvania League, where he was highly es teemed. Ho is now officiating in the practice games at Pittsburg and Mr. Nimick com mends him to the consideration of his League colleagues. There will certainly beone and probably two additional members of tbe staff selected at an early day to meet any emergency that may arise. It is not the intention of tbe League to indulge in tho double umpire system except on extraordinary occasions, toward tbe close of the season. Among tbe most prominent aspirants for the remaining positions on tbe staff are Phil Pow ers. Daniels. Geonre Strict and Mr. Campbell. The selections will hardly be made prior to tho opening of tbe championship season, which is scheduled for one week from next Saturday. CHANGED THE DATE. The Local Players' Team Will Commence at St. Louis Monday. The dates lor the games in which the local Players' League club will take part next week have been changed to Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Tbe players will, therefore, leave for St Louis to-morrow morning. The change is very satisfactory to Manager Hanlon because it will allow tbe team to return home and get a rest for Saturday. Secretary John Tener will not accompany the team as he has plenty of work here in making arrangements lor the opening game. Manager Hanlon and his men had a hard day's work at the East End grounds yesterday. Thev arrived there at lOSO and remained there until after 4 o'clock. The time was spent mostly in team work such as learning signs and cultivating each other's methods of play ing. There was also some good batting and fielding done, together with base running. Last night Manager Hanlon was delighted with the day's proceedings. Ho says bis players are all in excellent condition. He will select the players to go to St Louis to-day. A LETTEI1 FS0M BALDWIN. The Pitcher Denies n. Siory Ibont Himself and Captain Anson. A letter was received in tbe city yesterday from Pitcher Mark Baldwin, in which he ex plodes the foolish story circulated to the effect that he wanted to fight Anson, The letter was written Monday and is dated Hot Springs. Baldwin says tbat be saw Anson only once in Hot springs, and tbat was when the baseball parade was passing the hotel. They merely spoke, and that was all that passed between them. Baldwin also states that he has been at the springs to get his arm all right He does not know whether or not it will be as eood as ever, because he has not tested It yet He will leave for St Louis to-day and mav pitch in to-morrow's game between the Cbicagos aud Cleve land Players' teams. He does not think well ot Anson's team and thinks Adrian's colts may beat Pittsbuig and Cleveland out, but that tbey will get no higher. Baseball at Younsstowo. rsrZCIAL TTLEPBAJI TO TUX DISPATCH.!
