rFPECUL TELIOEAM TO TIIB DISPATCH.!
Cleveland, Oct, 17. The first game be
tween the Bostons and Clerelands for the
national championship has come and gone,
and not a run has been scored nor a victory
achieved, Nearly 6,000 people occupied
the seats at National League Park this
afternoon, comfortable in the warm rays of
an autumn snn, and crazy as bedlam's in
mates before they lia I been on the grounds
an hour. The opening contest was a duel
between the coal miner of Pennsylvania,
Stivetts, and the farmer boy of Ohio,
Young, and honors are easy between the
two, except that Stivetts struck out Young
three times, while the latter caught his ad
versary but once. Of the ten hi ts made in
the game by both teams but six were hard
line drives, and these were mutually di
vided between the clubs. In fielding
Cleveland did rather the more sensational
work of the two a phenomenally good
catch by HcAleer 'spoiling an apparent
three-base hit by Duffy, and Davis" work
at third excelling that ot any infielder.
Some Good Infield Work.
Thft first basemen of both teams were fre
quently applauded tor extraordinary stops
of poor throws. Behind the bat Cleveland
had the best of it, as Kelly was all at sea
on high' fouls, and bad but little speed in
throwing to second. In all respects it was
one of the most even games that ever was
played in the city. Gathering darkness
obliged the umpire to call it alter the'
eleventh inning was completed. It was
then quite impossible to see the ball from
the outfield. -The Cleveland club came
nearer scoring than Boston. Burkett was
the lucky man and lost his run by about a
foot at the plate on Ouinu's throw to Kelly.
This was in the ninth inning when it looked
at one time as though Cleveland would win
the game with two men on bases and but
one out McKean was at the bat, and in
spite of the fact that he hit the ball very
hard, one of the hardest hits in fact Hi the
.game, be batted it squarely into Long's
hands, forcing Davis at second. Long
tossed the ball to Quiun and the latter
started to argue with the umpire.
Burkett Was Fooled Greatly.
In the meantime Burkett had gone away
from third and made a dash lor the plate,
-but Quinn aroused from his trance and threw
the daring youngster out. Boston had two
good opportunities to score after two men
were out, that is they eo.t a player as far as
third base, where a hit would bring him
home. These chances occurred in the fourth
and filth innings. In the first' instance
Kelly was at bat and Young struck him out,
add the second time McKean made a good
stop and throw ofl'Quinu's hit After that
the Bostons never were within reach of the
plate. In addition to the ninth Cleveland
hid a possible chance to score in the second
inning, when McKean spoiled it by being
caught napping at second. In general the
progress of the entire game each inning
was one, two, three out
President Young, of the National League,
and President Soden, of the Boston club,
were delighted spectators. Thepitchers to
morrow will be Sialey and Clarkson.

A Good Opening Day at the Bennlngs Track
and Fair Betting.
Washi2coto7, Oct 17. The fall meeting of
the Washington Jockey Club was opened as
the Bennlngs track to-day under promising
conditions. The track was in fair condi
tion, a trifle too deep If anything. For an'
opening day the crowd was an excellent
one, but did not appear disposed to bet very
heavily. The infield was well filled with
fashionable turnout,some of them .ocaupled
Dy members of the diplomatic corps, and
though the campaisrn work has taken away
many Washington officials there was a fair
representation present. The number of
ladies at the course was not as large as
usual. During the afternoon the Third Ar
tillery Band furnlsbe'l excellent music.
The races themselves were not of a highly
exciting nature, none except the fourth fur
nishing a driving finish. Twenty firms
made, books to-day and fared very well, as
but one favorite, Sport, won and he was at
the prohibitive odds of 1 to 4.

auspiciously with glorious weather and an
excellent track. The day was an ideal one
for racing, but the finishes were not such as
to bring out any last performances. Five
events were on the card in whioh 42 horses
were down ro start out of which number 81
started. The talent were bumpod hard in
the first two races by tho winning or the
two long shots. Interior and Tenteen, both
of which won in band and prices from 30 to 40
to 1. Tbe wise men recouped their losses,
however, by the wins of the two top-heavy
favorites, Anna and Evanulus, while the
third race fell to Semper -Bex, a liberally
backed second choice. Bryant was the only
Jockey to win two mounts, the other races
falling to Taylor, Lilly and Julson. Attend

COEBETI'S BIG BLUFF.
He Only Wants to Fight Mitchell, Who la
Under Legal Bonds.
Chicago, Oct 17. Champion Jim Corbett is
in Chicago to attend the World's Fair dedi
cation, and as a side issue he is playing
"Gentleman Jim" at the Hayinarket Al
though not at this moment ready to shy bis
castor Into the ring, he expresses a desire to
get a chance at Mitchell,
"I am,1' he said, "especially anxious to
meet Mitchell, and prefer his game to that
of any man living. He insulted me once,
and I am anxious to face him in-the ring. I
feel confident that I can whip him. While I
would not be willing to cancel my theatrical
engagement, which runs into summer, I will
make all possible concessions to bring on a
fight 1 will post all necessary money, and
will guarantee to meet him at the date
specified. Next to Mitchell, I prefer to meet
Peter Jackson. If the Englishman refhses
to come 15) tho front I will make a prefer
ence ln'Juckson's lavor. I am not anxious
to fight right away. Sullivan did not fight a
championship battle for years, and here
Goddard, who has no claims whatever npon
my favor or consideration, is trying to
force me to meet him before my honors have

A MODEST FIOHTEE.
Joe Choynskl Makes a Good Impression on
a Few Visitor.
New York, Oct 17. If condition, modest
confidence and agility go for. anything, Joe
Choynskl should have a good ohanoe at
winning the fight on October 30, when he
faces George Qodliey, the colored prodigy.
A party ot sporting men acoompanled by au
Associated Press reporter visited the young
Callfornian ac his training ouurteis at
Navoslnk, Atlantic Highlands,' and fonnd
him In gooa health and spirits. With
Choynskl were "Parson" Davles, his backer,
and Johnny II cVay and "Buffalo" Costello,
his trainers. The fighter's quarters are in a
two-story cottage immediately facing the
Atlantis ocean and only a step from the
water's edge. The cottage, however, is used
only for lisht exercising and as sleeping
auarters. The harder part oc the training Is
one in a barn a short distance up the road,
all tne paraphernalia used in reducing
weight and .hardening the muscles being
fitted to walls and ceiling or the barn. Here
Choynskl overy morning punches the bag
for ten minutes, practices with the dumb
bells, tries his hand at tho wrist strengthen
ing machine and takes a 20 minute turn at
throwing a heavy leather ball. Then follows
the usual long walk. Choynskl said that he

GBEAT BATTLE EXP2CIED.
The Contest Between Choynskl and God
frey Causing Lots of Interest
New Yobk, Oct 17, Special. It the sale
of seats is any criterion, the battle between
Joe Choynskl and George Godfrey, which
occurs before the Couey Island Athletic
Club on October 81. will be the
most remarkable In point of attendance
which has been held since the opening fight
Johnnie Uckhardt has been besieged with
applications for boxes and seats. Several
hundred have already been sold, and, Judg
ing from the outlook, the house will contain
very few unreserved seats on the night of
Tickots have already been sold to Boston,
Philadelphia, Pittsburg and Chicago sport
ing men. Several special trains will be run
from the East and Philadelphia so that the
match can be attended conveniently. The
prices or admission will be fixed at $3. $5 and
$0. Private boxes holding five chairs, will
retail at $25. Tbo Maher-Goddard fight,
which will be held in the same clnb, is, so
those most Interested say, the best Indica
tion in the world that the Coney Islanders
are on easy street so lar as finances are con
cerned. The club has made a good deal of
money in the past and without any un
locked for interruption it baa a great deal
more to make in the future.
Very Tough for Kelly.
Millville, Oct. 17. The trains yesterday
brought a number of sporting men from
Philadelphia, Camden and Manchester to
this city, and they secured teams and drove
to a secluded place over the county line..
where an exciting set-to between David
Elliott, of this city, tbe feather
weight champion of South Jersey, and
Thomas Kelly, of Gloucester City, the
bantamweight champion of Camden
connty, took place. The Elliott-Kelly fight
was preceded by six friendly set-tos of tbree
rounds each between Philadelphia sports,
and then Elliott, weighing ISO pounds, and
Kelly, weighing 112 pounds, stepped'lnto tbe
ring. It was nip and tuck for six rounds.
At ,the beginning of the seventh Elliott
forced the fighting. Catching Kelly's jaw
he felled him In his own corner nnd then, it
is claimed, deliberately jumped on him and
made a pass at him while lying on his back.
The crowd uot in front of the referee and
prevented him from seeing the foul. Kelly
claimed tbe fight on a foul, bnt the referee
said he did not see it and refused to awnrd
it to him. Kelly then refused to continue
the fight and the referee gave the fight to
Elliott and awarded him the stakes.
Moore Won It
Chicago, Oct 17. In a rattling mill on the
West Side this morning Dick Moore, the St
Paul middle weight, defeated Tim Crowley
of Boston after five furious rounds. A purse
of $300 had been bung up for the fiht, while
the gate receipts reached an equal amount.
The fighting was fast and heavy fiom the
start Moore showed up well, drawing blood
in the first round, while Crowley seemed
very slow. In the second, Moore bad de
cidedly the best of the exchange. Crowley
came to the fore in tbe third rnshlng Moore
and banking him around with. good right
hand swings, lie railed to follow' up his
lead, however, and Moore came to the
scratch perfectly fresh in tho fourth. This
was a hot round, both men smashing right
and lelt. Crowley had tho worit of it, and
waB weuk when ho came up in tho next
round. Moore saw his chance, rushed in,
caught Crowley a left-hander in the neck,
and followed it up with a Btorm of punches
which laid Crowley senseless on the floor.
More New Tachts.
, New York, Oct 17. Most of the members
of the New York Yacht Club are, it is said,
ill favor of all altering a new deed of gift of
the America's cup so as to make it possible
to accept tho Earl of Dunraven's challenge.
Mat Herresboff, tho designee nnd builder,
has said that in rase the challenge is ac
cepted he can build three boats of the sizo
required in time to meet tho challenger. It
is altogether likely that ho would have that
manyoiders. General Paine might have a
boat built at Lawleys' in Boston, but if
Archibald Bogers. Edwin D. Morgan and
August Belmont decide to build-and they
are almost sure to do so-Herreshotr Is likely
to get the order.

BET. J. 0. TAinOK DEMANDS A TEJAL
Kev. J. C. Taylor, pastor of the Taber
nacle Baptist Church, colored, takes strong
exceptions to the action of the Executive
Committee of the Allegheny Baptist As
sociation, in declaring him deposed irom
Mr. Taylor said yesterday: "The action
of the Executive Committee, or of any other
body not provided for in the organic law of
the denomination, is a usurpation of au
thority which belongs to a council of
churches when .properly constituted. The
constitution of the association provides tor
an executive committee, whose duty it is to
change the place and time of the annual
meetings ot the association in case ot an
emergency, and to attend to business re
ferred to it at the annual session. It has
no authority to discipline a church, or dis
miss a pastor, or withdraw the hand of fel
lowship. The constitution provides for any
irregularity which may be brought to the
annual meeting of the association.
"The government of the Baptist Chnrch
is congregational; the right of discipline
rests in the church, and when a church be
comes disorderly the churches composing
the association shall proceed according to
tbe regulations. The grievance must be
brought to the bodv and referred to a com
mittee to investigate and report back, the
bodv then finding in the case. The church
agafnst which the charge Is preferred shall
have an opportunity for defense, and can
not be justly disciplined and excluded from
the association without a trial. The TabeT
nacle Baptist Church, which is reputed as
being disorderly, has violated no law of her
constitution, nor tbe recognized anthorities
of Baptist Church polity.
"The Executive Committee has gone a
step further in an illegal manner in asking
for the resignations of members of the
Woman's Missionary Society and Sunday
School Convention. These organizations
have their own officers and executive
boards separate from the association. There
fore the Executive Committee of the associ
ation has nothing to do with them. The
Executive Committee is so blinded with
prejudice as not to see the fallacy of its
course. The principal officers of these or
ganizations are members of the Tabernacle
"The churches of the association will not
indorse any such proceedings; They have
had no part in these unlawful actions, and
the whole matter can be traced to three
ministers who are attempting to run the
affairs of the church. If the leader would
walk after the unconverted and give them
the "Word of Life instead of going about
trying to disrnpt the Tabernacle Church, it
would be better for the cause he claims to
