Feiclothesand Meversweats Play an^Interesting Game.
Only Four Clubs to Play the^Second Series of Games^^A Letter From Har-^rlnston.
Buttf.,July 2H.-Tlio ball rbiiio played^at the Athletic grounds thi* afternoon foe-^tween tho Xcvcrswents. with C.iplin-fcr^and Drc-iinaii in the points, and the Fen-^rlottic-s, with HttrkncHsi and Munyaii as^tho battery, proved to ho u most interest^^ing contest und was witnessed by a small^but remarkably enthusiastic crowd of^about ^50 people. Both teams put up a^Cood article of ball and it was auyltody's
Sametip to the ninth inning, v. lien the^evens-cats jumped onto Harkness in a^shameful and heartrending manner and^hammered out six runs, three of which^were fuur-bacger*. Tho same was full of^blood and excitement and several pretty^plays were made. Three line double plays^w ere made at critical points, one from^Finnnery to Buchan to Gleason. another^from Bright to Desmond to Powell and^the third from Hoskins to Desmond. Fian^^ncry covered short for the Neversweats in^brilliant style and Buchan took the best^of care of everything that wont towards^second. These players also showed up^vell at the bat, Flannery smashing out^two home runs and Buchan vetting two^three-baggers and a home run.
Homeruns were also made by Gleason.^Hrciinan and Capliiigcr, all of the Never-^sweats. In all. six homo runs worn made^oil* Harkness. Harkness started cut well,^but seamed to lose his speed along about^the seventh inning, ana after that was^hammered unmercifully, ( aplinger. as^usual, started in a trifle wcuk.hut im^^proved with every ball ho pitched, and by^the third inning the ball-looked no bigger^than a marble us it flew over the plale^and the Fowelothes could not touch it.^Urcunan caught a tine game and threw^well to bases. Munyan also caught well^and saved Harkness several wild pitches.^Smith made a brilliant running catch of^a high fold over against the bleachers,^which, figuratively speaking, brought^down the house.
The:ollo^ ing is the score by innings:

Ina personal letter to Jack Brennan,^Jerry Harrington. Butte's old catcher, ex^^presses the opinion that Jack is better .41^out here than in the Last, sn far as salary^is concerned. Jerry states that he had to^stand a cut of |M0 in lussalaiy. Khincs^got $1,(iu i ehoppcsl oil' his. Mullanc gol^fl.OOJ, Holliday and Mcl'hee got tUM each^and even ( omiskey had to stand the cut^together with tne others. Jerry was Hop^^ping in the waves tit Coney Island the lirst^day he arrivod in New York anil is having^a good time generally^but not nearly so^much fun as he had in Butte.
JackBrennan, Butte's ^old reliable,^^received a letter yesterday which, had it^come to hand sooner, might have Itceii the^cause of his not playing in Butte this sea-^sou. It is a blank contract with the Ka*t-^cru league offering him $l.fi'*0 to play with^whichever club in that league he might bo^assigned to from April 15 to October 1. It^is accompanied by a letter from Secretary^('. D. White under dsto of March .11. Both^letter and contract were sent to Brennan^in care of the St. Louis SjwrtiH'j .\^n^ of-^lice, from which place they were mailed^last Saturday. I he local cranks need^have no fear of losing Jack, however,^for be Is as much mi love with^Untie us the ^fans^ are with him. He^states that he is going to winter in Butle,^so as to Ik' in readiness to play here next^scauoti, and this is certainly most welcome^Ileus. Juck is bv long (Kills the most |x^pu-^lar player in the team and there is no I let^^ter nor harder ball player than he in^America. From the time the lirst ball is^pitched until the lust inning is iluishcd^Jack has but one idea, and that is, that^Butte must vv in the game. He plays ball^with his hands and his head- and some^^times with his mouth, for Jack is a mo t^earliest ami impressive kicker whenever^he thinks be is getting the worst of it^and never loses his head or become* rat^^tled for un instant. Manager l'ovvell says^that Brennan is abetter catcher than^Harrington, and there arc a good many^people here who thinks the same way. He^is certainly a jewel, and if lie stays in^Butte as long as tho cranks want him to^he will be buried la-re.
TheGatrtlt says that there^ is c ^jng to^be a general shaking up in the Miss mla^team before long. Neither Miil^|ueeu nor^Twinebaw will be signed. Several of the^old players will lie released, among them^McVey. This will Ilea hard blow for Me-^Vey, who has a bad case tit swelled head^und lias imagined all along that he was^really the only genuine first baseman in^tho league. MeVey's release is probably^due to keeping late hours and ^Issuing.''^After the games with Butte on Saturday^and Sunday. Cargo, tho shortstop will re^^tire from the team, ^owing to the serious^illness of his sister.^ the (inti tle says. His^place will lie lilted by Wallace. Missoula^is going to make a strong pull lor the^championship in the second series and^there is no outside team whom Butte peo*^plo would rather sec will it.
TheHelanu team w ill leave in a few days^on a trip through I'tali. where it expects^to clean up enough to pay for the last two^wo ks of idleness, caused by Great Falls^dropping out. An five-club league is de^^cidedly unsatisfactory', and unless Ana^^conda comes in one of the remaining clubs^will undoubtedly have to drop out.
PitcherDarby of the defunct Omaha*^has signed with tho liorhcstcrs of the^Eastern League The Bm^m:iu directors^made a great rush after Darby and^thought they hud him sure, but it turns^out that they were mistaken.
ManagerPowell received a telegram^this afternoon conveying the information^that the Bozetnaii club had disbanded and^forfeited its franchise in the 'Montana^league. This action has licon expected for^some time, however, and the news was^eonscc|uetitl.v not much of a surprise. The^Bozcinan club has been on its last legs for^some time and it is a great deal better that^it should throw if)i its hands now than^wait until later in the season. Butte won^three out of the last series of four games^with llnzcinan, shutting them tint twice,^and this evidently sturted them on the^road to destruction. Then Philipslmrg^defeated them twice in succession on their^own grounds, and ibis completed their^mill. After that the Uoicuiau people came^to the conclusion that their team w as no^^Bed and refused to contribute further^towards its support, and this settled i\
TheBoil-mail directors probably de^^cided to drop out just in time to save^themselves from being Jroppcd out of the^league. Alive club league cannot Iw run^sati -fiit tcrilv. although it has lieen fre^^quently tried, but with invariably the^same result. Ami as it did not seem^probable that Anaconda would come in.^President Cowan had divided to call a^meeting ill a few days to uccidc what
courseto pursue. It was a foregone con^^clusion that one of the clubs would I e^dropped at this meeting and indications^pointed strongly to Boienion as the one^that would have logo. Philipsburg and^Helena are known to have had it b lor^Ikixcman. and Missoula would very likely^have voted with them. Butte would not^liav evoted at nil ill any event,as it was a^^Wed pipe^ cineu that this city would Is*^kept in on account of the big money^which tho other clubs all make here, If for^no other reason.
Itseems to bo the general opinion here^that the league is now on n more substan^^tial hnsis than it has ever been, and no^one doubts that Butte, Helena. IMiiltps-^burg and Missoula w ill finish the season^and make the nice a hot one. Butte,^Helena and Philipsburg an' ill the rare to^slay, and How that Banker Higgilis has^taken bold of ihe Missoula team tin-re is^no danger of its going under. The sched^^ule committee will probably meet in a fev.^days and arrange a new schedule and^things will move along just as smoothlv as^though Bozcman and Great Falls had^never belonged to the league. The num^^ber of games to lie played by each club^w ill of course lie increased by tho new^schedule. Several of the ltoz^ man play^^ers want to come to Butte, but there is no^opening for them here.

BlTTK,July l^. -The cheap-hecr move^^ment appears to !*^ causing considerable^uneasiness to some of the concert hall^people. To-day a proprietor of one of^these places stated to a SnMi.vim re-^IHirler tliat since so many of the better^class of saloons had begun to sell beer for^a nickel his business had drop|ied to a^very' uppris-iable extent, and riaMMSd that^others of the concert halls had been simi^^larly affected. He said that if tie More*^incut continued the time was not far dis^^tant when, in his opinion, the concert^halls would have to close* up, as beer^straight at I cents a glass appeared to Is* a^greate r attraction than beer at a bit a^glass with a woman t/^ serve it und enter^^tain the purchaser.

Scatiereel over a considers^ah!.* area in this locality arc a number of^old e'nhius and tiiinbledovvn shatitie*s that^were built years ago by miners and arc^now in such a state* of dilapidation as to^Is* scarcely habitable by auv thing save^wild tieasts. Yet the se ruins are occupied^by human beings, but of a class so low^and of morality so depraved, that^only in form are they human.^Hero dwell men nnd women in tho^same manner that dwell animals in a^cave- and with no MBJ rcgaid for the pro^^prieties or perseinal cleanliness and de^^cern')'. Where the pi sir outcasts came^from nobesly seems to know , |sf they are^know n eilily to their own kinel and to tho^policeman w hose beat take's in the locality^ill which they are. Drinking whiskey,^fighting and cursing w hen not under the^llitltlcnoo ,,f opium or morphine seem to^M tin* chief esM upations and amusement^of tlx* wretches, anil some eif tho orgies^that occasionally occur there* long after^other {s'ople an* wrapped in slumber are^such as would make a rcsjicctable person^sick at heart and Isidy to witness them.^Tile most shameless acts ed' profligacy aru^committed there, ami the very depths of^moral and physical ilii'ny have been^re.teheHl by those that enact them.

A Ire-^^|ilcnt sharer of the hospitality of the den^is a negro, who is seen almost every night^at a late hour to cuter the hove! ami re^^main until the usual time for the inmates^to get up. loi'cntly the out lit has been^closely watched by a policeman, and ill^order that die negro might not be seen^entering the house a large hole was^cut into the r.-.tr wall of the^shack, through which the* fellow would^crawl. A lew nights ago the inmates^of the* ilen were more than ordinarily^noisy and tlllicer l.eg.-r determined to ar-^re*st them for disturbing the peace. When^he entered the hole* the* women was lying^on the he-el in a perfi i t state of nudity anil^helpless from ihe effe-ets of moi pintle and^whiske y. Her brother was also lying on^the Is'd and crazy w ith liepior and mor^^phine. Calling in u neighbor to assist^MM the etlicer stu'ceeded ill putting a^elress on the woman and. placing her in a^hack, look her and brother to the station.^Against the v otuaii he entered u charge-^of disturbing Ihe |M*ucc nnd a charge of^vatmnr.v was entered against Ihe man.

An^hour or so after their arrest the hovel they^occupied wus visite'd l*y a Si vMi vltn re^^porter iindei tbe guidance of Ollicor Leger.^The sight* and stenches eucouuli-rcil were^such us to cause the re*|s^rtcr to doubt his^souses.
