Miners Play the Ponies (0 a Standstill
in a Ten-Inning GameTwo
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Rprlntrfleld, July 2. It would take a
mathemntlclnn with an expert knowl
'dRO of spherical trigonometry to fig
ure out why Springfield was nble to
make today's game a ten-Inning light,
for the I'onles were outplayed at near
ly every point and did not deserve to
be In the game at any stage.
Lucky batting and some magnificent
pitching by Jlalns at critical points
made up for his poor Rupport. Italn
Mopped the game at the end of the
beventh with the score tied at :i-3.
After a thirty-minute wait play was
Olllon could not do much with a wet
ball and the Ponies batted in two runs.
IT OKTS INTERESTING.
Gilbert's wild throw and Magulrc's
single gave Scranton one in the eighth.
In the ninth O'llrien's double, Gilbert's
wild throw again and a base on balls
tied the score.
In the tenth after two were out the
visitors won on Magulre's scratch lilt,
Bloore's prror and Heard's single.
Two sharp double plays In the ninth
and tenth Innings by Ueard and .Ma-
;ulro respectively shut off what would
Flipce been Inevitable scores off Jleany,
u-no succeeueu union In the ninth. In
lien case a run would have won tho
i.'imo, but for the Miners' fast fielding.

Williams. He held Buffalo down to thr'o
hits and they were Fc.ittered so they
counted but little. Clymer made a won
derful catch ot Buck Freeman's long fly
In tlio sixth Inning and ho was cheered

A young brother of Jack Kcenau, of tho
Wllkes-Harre team, Is pitching for To
ledo. The most games won by one club from
another aro tho eleven by Buffalo from
WIIkes-Barro hasn't won a gamo from
Syracuse or Buffalo and only two each
from Scranton and Toronto.
Do Haas Robinson says that the Cleve
land club will be transferred to Milwau

the Sunday ball question.
Boston's shnro of the receipts for the
three Baltimore gnmcj was $13,000, enough
to pay all traveling expenses for tho sea

It was quite a coincidence that Jennings
should get In tho game nnd bo hit by a
pitched ball at a tlmo when that circum
stance was needed by Baltimore to help
win tho game.
Tommy Bannon's having his troubles
with Syracuse. Ho was tho only thing
on earth soon after being signed. It was

tho law allows.

Tho Wllkes-Barro Recoid says that the
Toronto, Providence and Buffalo teams
aro apt to be tho chief contenders for tho
4ennant, with Syracuse as runners up. -Toronto
Globe. That might come true If
Providence h&d to play only tho Wllkes
Barro team, but there are other clubs In
tho race. Scranton certainly has ns good
u chanco for third place as has cither
Provldetico or Toronto
The Wllkes-Barro Record's sickening,
oft-rcpe'nted irfercnces to "our" Hughlc
ought to bo called In. Hughlo Is all right;
If ho wt-sn't it would not bo surprising
that Wllkes-Barro had a right to dub
him "OUR" llughle. Jt happens, though,
that tho famous shortstop's homo Is nt
Avocn, four miles from tho Scranton city
line. If .1 freight car stands In your line
of vision ut tho Avoca station ono cannot
see the town, Jennings on tho road says
he's "from Scranton Just outslde."It Is
hardly probable that he is flattered by
tho Wllkes-Barro slobbering nnd tho en
dearing references to "our" llughle.
LAST RACE DAY

Best Meeting In Years Brought to a

Roso the Running Race--Und In
hibition by ltowdy Joo--Trnck
Hlcyclo Record Broken by Keller
und Grcgory--Accldcnts to thu
Threatening weather yesterday prob
ably cnused a reduced attendance nt
the third nnd last day of the Driving
park races, but there .was a large
crowd present Just tho snTne and It got
its fill of entertnlnment. The after
noon saw the close of the best meeting
In Scranton In mnny years.
Rowdy Joo acted badly and failed to
reduce Raven's track record; Kcllernnd
Gregory, the tandem bicycle pair of
the Green Ridge wheelmen, made a
new paced nnd unpaced track record,
and with the horses there waa a run
ning race of accidents nnd two good
2.34 trot nnd 2.29 trot or pnee events.
Starter Fred Smith, of Buffalo, again
ofllclated and had with him ns Judges,
-J. D. Carpenter, of Tunkhannock, and
J. W. Houser, M. D., of Taylor.
Out of ten entries In tho 2.34 trot
there were six scratches. Of the four
who started Topsle R went to the post
a prime favorite. The other three were
Josephine (K, R. Hucklcv), Julia R.
(F. W. Cook), and Bessie Madison (W.
C. Norton). Those withdrawn were
Sarnclnesca, Daisy, Cal, Little Rose,
Alice Wilton Nand Prospect. Topsle R
drew tho pole nnd wns clearly superior
to the others. She broke badly at the
wire In the first half, but recovered on
the first turn, was oven with Josephine
on the upper turn and won handily by a
scant half length, Josephine second,
Julia R third nnd Bessie Madison a bad
acting last. Time, .39, 1.17, 1.57, 2.34.
A FAST HEAT.
The second heat was faster by four
and one-half seconds, Topsle R keeping
the lend throughout and Josephine and
Julia R lighting for second. The latter
two broke on the last turn, but Joseph
ine lecovered the quicker and wns sec
ond a length behind Topsle R and the
same distance before Julia R. Time,
.3S, 1.151,4, 1.G3, 2.30.
There was some queer driving over
Topsle R, Julia R, nnd Josephine In the
third heat. The officials saw It from
the Judges' stand, but as the unfavored
li-irse was driven out and won It was
decided not to caution the other three
until before the fourth heat.
Topsle R led the bunch with Jo
sephine and Julia R close up for three
quarters. In the last turn Topsio II
broke nnd the next two had a good
chance to win, but they broke In suc
cession and Bessie Madison came up on
the outside. Topsle R had never re
covered her stride. Josephine nnd Ju
lia It with the hent cinched were not
dilven out until Bessie Madison showed
to the front. It wns too late then to
beat the latter and she won by a hRlf
length. Julia R, second a head In front
of Josephine, Topsle R last by five
lengths. Time: .38, 1.10. 1.36, 2.33.
F. W Cook and E. 11. Buckley, the
divers of Julia R, and Josephine were
cautioned to drive out the fourth beat
just before It was started. Bessie
Madison with the pole advantage was
first around the turn and tip the back
streteh. Tho quarter wns turned In
.3S',. Bessie Madison broke on the up
per turn nnd Josephine got the pole
and held the lead to the finish. Topsle
R was breaking at all points in the race
and was a bad last. The half was
made In 1.17, the three-quarters In 1.56
and the mile In 2.34. Josephine
showed first by a length. Beside Madi
son a length before Julia It, third.
The fifth heat showed the best horses
first and second, Josephine nnd Julia
R. All four broke at some point but
Josephine nnd the place horse trotted
the steadier heat and were entitled' to
their positions. Bessie Madison was
third and Topsle It fourth. Time:
.c7',L. 1.15, 1.53, 2.33Vi.
JULIA It OUT OF IT.
For not winning one out of five heats
Julia It went to the barn before the
sixth heat. This left only Josephine,
Topsle R nnd Bessie Madison to com.
rere. Josephine went nt n gait
which was plainly one of skipping.
She did not trot a square mile. Topsle
R did and would have been awarded
the heat but for a break In tho home
stretch. Josephine finished first by a
length and a half. Time: .38, 1.15,
2.34 trot, purso $200.

Prose was considered such a likely
candidate In the 2.20 trot that all the
probable starters were withdrawn and
the event declared off. The horso so
feared Is n 7-year-old bay gelding own

has a mnrk close to 2.20. The other

Fifteen were scratched In the 2.29
trot or pace, hut n good field of six
and anybody's choice remained, Annie
J., Mark Anthony, Myrtle S Hilly If.,
Bellman and Clay Cross. At the post
Myrtle S and Clay Cross proved to be
very troublesome. After five trials
Starter Smith remarked to tho drivers
of tho two horses in question that he
could not hold four good horses for two
bad ones and that ho would send them
away on the next attempt. Billy II., the
polo horso, wns slow In scoring and it
was not until tho seventh trial that
they got the word with Myrtle S. nnd
Clay Cross bad lasts, tho latter break

bnckstretch Bellman passed Maik An
thony and was with Annie J. when
Hilly II. passed the three-quarter post

down the stretch and It was close work
for the Judges to pick thctn Annie

BARNEY BIRNEY DROVE.
Horseman Well Known Hero Drivos
nn Kiuly Sanson Record.
Barney Hlrney, the well-known dri
ver, formerly located nt Wllkea-Barrr.,
and who has "reined" behind many
horses at tho Scranton rnces in the
rast, drove tho greatest race of tho
year nt Readvllle, Mnss., Thursday.
He won the 2.10 pace with Prince Al
bert In the rcmnrkablo tlmo of 2.11 Vi.
2.08V4. and 2.07.
This Is tho fastest record of the sea
son to date, and Is great speed for this
early In tho year. Probably because
Hlrney is so well known hero his driv
ing at Readvllle was generally dis
cussed at tho Scranton Park yesterday.
TRUE, GAME, CORNELL !
Won the Race, but Offered to Row
University of Pennsylvania the Dis
tance Again Today.
Poughkcepsle, N. Y., July 2. Tho
second 'vaiBlty race upon the four-mile
course, between the elght-onred crews
from Cornell, Columbia nnd Pennsyl
vania came off this evening. Cornell
won, Columbia second, about eleven
lengths and a half to the rear. Penn
sylvania foundered Just after passing
tho two-mile mark.
The ofllclal time: Cornell, 20.47 4-5;
Columbia, 21.20 2-5.
All of the expectations of those lov
ers of American sports that by estab
lishing new records Pennsylvania and
Columbia would be entitled to demand
admission Into what promises to be an
Intercollegiate rowing combination of
three colleges, Yale, Harvard and
Cornell, have been rudely shattered.
Tho contest on the Hudson this after
noon which had been heralded as
promising a close and exciting finish,
nnd which each college conch declared
would bo a record-breaking contest,
turned out to be the merest sort of a
procession nnd an apology for a race.
It Is true that the water conditions
were not favorable to fast time, nnd
that men like Dr. Walter Peet and
ether boating experts alleged that It
was not a proper time to start a race,
but it Is also true that once having
started the chances were certainly
equal for each crew. There was really
no race to describe, at least not after
the second mile. During the first three
quarters of a mile the contest wns rath
er pretty, Pennsylvania took tho wat
er first, Columbia following nnd Cor
nell hanging to the rear. At the quar
ter of a mile Pennsylvania had a lead
of one-half a length over Columbia,
and Columbia one-half a length over
Cornell; Pennsylvania was, however,
At the three-quarter of a mile Penn
sylvania had three-quarters of a length
still over Cornell, who had pulled on
beyond Columbia for about half a
length. It was here that the trouble
seemed to begin In the Pennsylvania,
boat. They had caught considerable
wash from a passing steamer. By the
time the crews had reached the mile
and a. quarter the Pennsylvania boat
was lumbering nlong, filled almost to
the gunwales, but the men continued
bravely pulling, although falling far
behind Columbia, who In rowing In
shore to avoid the swells, had lost con
siderable distance to Cornell. From a
mile and a half down the almost lu
dlclous procession began. Cornell fin
ished an easy winner.
To the pitiable fizzle of the afternoon
there wns one bright side nnd that
was the true American sportsman spir
it displayed by Cornell. On the ref
eree'e boat, Just after Pennsylvania
was swamped, Professor Wheeler, of
Cornell, turned to James Bond, of
Pennsylvania, and said:
A marvolons euro for
can bo given eecrotly at
