Cleveland, June 26. Mr. "Silver" King
the high-pricod twirler from the Clay brick
yards of St. Louis, 'was
ready to slnt down with
exhaustion before the fifth
inning of to-day's game had
been finished, and when it
was all over nnd the last
Clevelandcr had expired,
Manager Hanlon told him
he could take a half holiday
on the bench and let Maul
pitch the remainder of the
game. The white headed
nl German had about as much
Jill BPeei as an olu- woman
i w Ji throwing corn to tne
' P lailllJ I chickens, and the home
team banged the ball in
every direction. When
Maul came in tho gentle
men in white rapped the
ball almost as hard, but they -were lazy, and
careless base running kept them from scor
ing. nad Found a Mascot.
Hanlon had found a mascot somewhere
and he w as very much pleased with the re
sult of the first inning. It amused J. Palmer
O'Neill greatly also, and ho sat in an upstairs
box and did his best to keep up the drooping
spirits of the Clevelanders. Before the game
was over a quart of that subtle Western
fluid known a 40-red would have hud no
more effect on O'Neill than on a stone man.
lie had collapsed utterly and was blind to
over thing but the fact that Pittsburg had
dropped four straights. No fault could he
found with the field work of the Pittsburg
team, for tho pla ersheld up their end nobly
in the face of a bombardment equal to that
of the forts at New Orleans during the late
nnpl-asantncss. A local player of some
promise by the name of Spurney filled in the
pap that had hitherto existed in the Pitts
burg infield and did his work well.
In the first innina; Miller rapped up a little
fi that Ioy!e mulled nnd then threw the
batter out as he was trying to make second
base. Heckler flew out to Dovle and Brown
ing rappod a llj to Davis. Tiie ball got in
the tun and Davis muffed it.
Carroll's Big Home Bun.
r Carroll smashed a line hit to the center
field corner of the grounds, the first time
such a hit has been made this year, and
scored an easy home run, with Browning
ahead of him. Two men were out for
Cleveland and Childs hit tho ball to Bier
bauer. It bounded badly and Childs was
mfe. Johnson made a good two-base hit.
Childs having stolen second, and the fat boy
came home w itli a run, In tho third Young
led off with a singlo and McKean followed
with another. Davis hit the ball to right
field and Young nnd McKean scored. Pitts
burg iiNo proceeded to tie the coro on
Browning's single, a steal and Slack's hit to
left field. Then Cleveland went in and
made u few more. Virtue slammed a liner
to center. Zimmer lilt to center also and
Drany put the ball over Browning's head
:or thrco bases. Tho gladiator feebly put up
one hand to stop it and two runs scored for
Cle clana in the meantime.
Bicrbaner's Great'Catch.
Bierbauer made a phenomenal catch of
Mchean's fly, and Denny scored on Davis'
hot hit to right field. In the next inning
ICing was knocked oat of the box. Dovlo
was the first batter, and got a bae on balls.
He stole second and went to third on Vir
tue's sacrifice. Zimmer w as given a base on
lulls Denny hit to left field fcafcly nnd
Dovle scored! Carroll tumbled tho ball and
Zimmer crossed tho plntc after running all
the wa from first, 'ioungmade a safe hit
and McKean and Davis followed with hits,
scorinsr Denny, Young and McKean. King
muffed Childs' high fly and Johnson was lilt,
tilling tho bases. Doyle's single sent Davis
iir.d Childs home, aiid Johnson scored on
Virtue's double. Pittsburg cot its last t o
runs on Spume 's tn o-bng",cr, a sacrifice,

The 'Wearers ot the Crimson Cause a Big
Snrprlso by Defeating the Yale Crew In
the Big Boat Race Lots of Excitement
Among an Immense Crowd.
New Lokdos, June 23. The annual four
mile cight-oarcd straightaway race between
tho Yale and Harvard university crews waf
rowed this afternoon over tho Thames
course from Wlnthrop Point to Gales' ferry,
and was won by Harvard by 11 lengths.
Time, 2133. Yale's time, 21:57. The record
now stands: Yale, nine victories and seven
defeats; Harvard, seven victories and nlna
defeats. Yale hold the time record. Har
vard's plucky victory is the biggest surprise
that has occurred in college athletics for
many years. The good Judges of rowing
conceded the race to Yale almost to a man,
and so strong was this sentiment in favor-of
Yale that stacks of Yale money, left at the
pool rooms went uncovered, even at odds of
$100 to $70 and $100 to $60;
Harvard took the lead at the start and
forged ahead with a rush, and as their shell
went ahead the crimson supporters on the
observation train and Innumerable steamers
j.' - ; !?--"wy- v'?
became frantic with' excitement, which, as
Harvard continued to gain a commanding
lead, continued to increase. As the excite
ment spread some very Teckless work was
done by the various -steamboat captains.
There were two collisions, and that there
were no serious results Is simply a matter of
good luck. Two miles up the river the tug
boat Gypsy ran into the side of the press
boat, the Munnatawket, the shock throwing
25 or 50 people off their feet. At the finish,
where the channel was crowded with all
sorts of craft, the Munnatawket, in trying to
avoid a collision with the Rhode Island,
struck the tug American a hard bump amid-
snips, Knocking many people sprawling over
the decks. Fortunately no ono went over
board and no ono was seriously injured.
Promptly at 11:30 the crews came down the
river toward the stake boats, Harvard pad
dling in their shell nnd Yale on their launch.
Harvard backed into position at 11:31, and
Yale, after embarking at a float, came into
place at 11:40. The crews were at once cau
tioned and given the word. Harvard caught
the water first, and, setting a fast stroke of
40, at once pushed the bow of their boat
slightly in front. Yalo started with 38
strokes, and, though they put a great deal of
power into their strokes, tho 1 ale boat did
not move as quickly as was expected. Har
vard held her fast stroke for a short time,
during which time they had, 150 yards from
the start, increased their lead to nearly one
length. For a few strokes both crews caught
a sweu ana spiasneu quite oaaiy. Then set
tling down, each crew gave a very pretty ex
hibition of rowing. The Harvards, however,
were clearly sending their boat along at bet
ter speed than they have over shown in
practice, and were gradually creeping away
from Yale stroke by stroke. Yale's work, on
the other hand, was much inferior to that
seen in their daily practice pulls, and there
was a perceptible hang and settling of the
boat after each stroke.
At the half mile Harvard led by a clear
leiisrth, Harvard pulling 38 strokes and Yale
U4. tho time being Harvard, 2:27, and Yale,
2:33. Timo nt the mile: Harvard, 5:01: Yale,
5:11. Mile and a half: Harvard, 7:40; Yale,
7:53. At the two-mile flag Harvard's time
was 10:19 and Yale's 10:41, Harvard pulling 33
strokes and Yale 35. At two and one-half
miles Harvard had then gained an addi
tional three lengths, pulling 34 strokes per
minute and Yale 35. Time, Harvard, 12:55:
Yale, 13:14.
Both crews were doing excellent work,
but Harvard's shell continued to show a
steady gain and they passed the finish pull
ing 40 strokes a minute, while Yale, 11
lengthes behind, rowed 37. Harvard's crew
rowed at once to their quarters and Yale
paddled up to Gale's ferry. Tho officers
were: Releree, William A. Meikelham, of
Columbia; judges, Lawrence E. Sexton, Har
vard, Bob Cook, Yale; timers, Charles Ad
ams, Harvard, George A. Adee, Yale.

It Was Drilled Deeper After Having Been
Abandoned as a Failure.
McKeesport, June 23. Reports from Eliz

Sneo & Co. brought in the finest gas well
ever brought in along the Monongahela
river at Elizabeth this morning. The well
has a tremendous pressure, and is located
close to the recent big well.
The well is one which was drilled to a
depth which was thought to be sufficient,
and gave a poor showing, when the drillers
stopped and another hole was put down
which proved a great success. This caused
tho firm to conclude that if the first hole
was drilled deeper tbo results would be as
desired. The hole was drilled deeper, and
the big well brought in to-day was tho result.
