LIMBER LONG Pulled Down the Orioles' Red-hot Fly BUMPERS FROM BEANTOWN BIT OK TOP OF THE BASEBALL LADDER Tho Champions Oive Away the Oame After Wasting Most Beautiful Chances to Win Associated Press Special Wire. BALTIMORE, Sept. 24— Nearly 13, --•00 person* saw Boston's baseball play ere beat the champions today and take the lead ln the exciting race for this sea son's ohamplonship. One hundired and thirty-five of these people were Bos tonians. who came over to "root" for their fellow citizens. Bedecked with red badges and armed with tin horns, they made noise enough for ten times -their number, ar«d tonight they are in an ex cessively cheerful frame of mind. Not so with the rest of the crowd, for they have no excuse to make for the beaten champions. The game was fairly won by superior playing, timely batting, bet ter base running, sharper and cleaner fielding, in which Hamilton, Long and Tenny played probably the most con spicuous parts, two of Long's and one cf Tenny's catches being of the most Sensational order. At first it looked' like an easy victory far the champions, when the visitors went out in- one, two, three order in successive innings, and the Orioles hadi two tallies tucked away, but there was a change in the fourth when Doyle, usually faultless In his fielding, fell over an easy ground er right into his hands, giving Stahl a life and. letting Tenny in with a run. This piece of bad playing was followed' by a bit at hard ruok\ when Stenzel • three-bagger, but was instantly caught trying to come home on Doyle's easy j one to Collins. A period of demoraliza tion, which doea not show, in. the. score, overtook the Baltimoreans at this junc ture and two runs put the visitors in the lead. This lead would have been overcome, as the sequel shows, but "Brother Joe" clinched it for the visitors by presenting them with two runs in the seventh, a throw over Doyle's head in trying to flel dan easy bunt, a wild pitch and an other fall down on a simple little ground er by Lowe, netting three runs after gllt-edgedi chances to retire the sid-e had been offered and lost. It seamed quite hopeful for the champions again in the ninth, when Doyle, Reijtz and Robinson tingled, one after the other, sending Doyle in with a run and Reitz followed with another on McGraw's single. Quinn going out in the meantime on a long fly to Hamilton. With four runs in, two men on bases and only one out, it looked good for Baltimore, but Dong jumped way up Into the air, pulled down Keeler's red hot liner, threw it to Lowe at second and doubled l up Capt. Robinson, w ho had incautiously lit out for third base when Keeler hit the ball. This ended the agony and the score tells the rest. At tendance, 12,900. Score: BALTIMORE ab. r. lb po. a. c.

TOURNAMENT TEAMS SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 24.—The Re liance and Gilt Edge ball teams were reinstated by the executive committee of the local tournament today in re sponse to a petition from the managers of the other clubs.

GBIDIRON FIENDS College Men Preparing for the Foot ball Season NEW HAVEN, Conn., Sept. 24.—The work of the Yale football team this year is full of dash and energy.

Of this eleven, Connor and Hlne are the only men who played in the Prince ton, game last fall, and they both went in as substitutes.

HARVARD CHANGES CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 24.—Head Coach Forbes is now carrying his foot ball notiors into effect as far as organi zation is concerned, and he has been none too slow in getting his force in order. Richardson and Lewis are at the end, Swain and Lee at tackle and Cozzens is takirg Sullivan's place al half back. Haughton is being tried at full back. His punting is easy and, above all, quick.

OVER THE WICKET American Bowlers Have Found Some New Curves PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 24.—The final fifteen-minutes play today ir. the inter national cricket match between Phila delphia and English teams was Inter esting in the extreme, the four batsmen of the Englishmen being retired without scoring a run. This is the first of two three-day matches to be played between a picked team of Phlladelphians and Captain Warner's team of English am ateurs. Nearly all the men on the local teams were members of the Philadel phia team which made a cricket tour this summer. Play beganat noon today. The Phlladelphians went first to bat and In their innir.g scored twenty-four runs. The English team then started their inning and four of their wickets were lost in fifteen, minutes without obtain ing a single tally. Captain Warner then made the point that it was too dark to continue play and the umpire ordered stumps to be drawn. The loss of four wickets for no runs is probably without precedent in a match between high class teams. A GREAT SCARE Fortunately Unaccompanied by Any Serious Results SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 24—The city was thrown into a state of great excite ment about 7:15 this evening by the re port that one of the crow ded, ferry boats plying between Oakland and. San Fran cisco was on fire Just outside the slip A Are alarm, rung in, from the water front district served in a measure to confirm the report and rumors of a ter rible catastrophe spread with great ra pidity. The cause of the alarm was the explosion of a tank of gasoline on the gasoline launch Moro, lying at Mission street wharf. The vessel was being made ready for sea and her tanks were being filled with gasoline when in.some unaccountable way the hose through which the gasoline was conducted to the tanks became misplaced and a stream of gasoline shot down into the cabin, catching fire on one of the lights. The flames spread rapidly and soon thecabln was enveloped in flames, which spread to the gasoline tanks, causing several explosions. Happily the force of the explosion was not great and no one was hurt. One man was thrown overboard but was rescued. The Moro is owned by J. S Kimba'l of this city and plys between, this port and the Coquille river In Oregon, touch ing at way ports. Captain Jorgensor. was ready to take the vessel to sea to night, but her trip will have to be post poned for a or so for repairs. The loss will amount to several hundred dol lars. GOING ABROAD The Famous Sprague Property Is Offered for Sale NEW YORK, Sept. 24.—A special to the Journal and Advertiser from Wilming ton. Del., says: Canonchet, at Narragansett.is for sale. Mrs. Sprague placed the big property in the hands of a New York ;eal estate agent to dispose of. Mrs. Sprague is known as Madame Inez Sprague. Being asked the reason for the sale she replied: "I want to go abroad to study opera. I expect to leave in. a few weeks and will make Europe my home. We have been thinking for some time that it would not be beet for ue to retain old Canonchet and a few days ago we concluded to offer it for sale." Mrs. Sprague returned from Paris only a short time ago. While in the French capital she was a student of Marches!. She will leave New York In a few weeks for Paris, whence she will go to Milan, where she will appear in the opera of Aida this winter. Mrs. Sprague has for many years been a leader in Narragansett's fashionable set. She is a Virginian by birth and at the time she married Rhode Island's war Governor, her sister married his son. She was quite wealthy in her own right and it is said that It was principally through her efforts that the Governor's famous estate and home,Canonchet, was saved when he became involved in finan - cial difficulties. Mrs. Sprague is said now to be worth $3,000,000. Canonchet waa erected about thirty five years ago. It took its name from the chief of a tribe of Indians. The cost of its construction, together with the im mense tract of land surrounding it, was $1,000,000. Several years ago, it is said, one of the Vanderbilts offered Governor Sprague $800,000 for the property.but he declined it. Doll Discharged NEVADA CITY, Cal., Sept 24.—The preliminary examination of Enail W. Doll, accused of murdering U. G. Todd, a week ago, while the two w ere on a* spree together, resulted this afternoon In the discharge of the accused.

Mad From Fear COLUMBUS, Kas., Sept. 24.—Ed Staf flebaek, one of the notorious family of murderers In jail here, has gone stark mad through fear of lynching at the hands of a mob. Ed Staffleback is con victed of murder in the first degree for the killing of Frank Galbraith, one of the several persons supposed to have been murdered in the den of the Stafflebacks at Galena, this county. The constant talk of lynching heard on every side has caused him to become a raving maniac, iHe la confined in a strait Jacket. TORPEDO BOAT Assembly at Brooklyn for Repairs MUCH WORK MUST BE DONE BEFORE THE VESSELS ARE FIT FOR SEA A Six Months' Cruise May Demon strate the Value of the Little Destroyers Associated Press Special Wire. NEW YORK, Sept. 24.—The Times says: From present appearances, the torpedo boat flotilla, which is to cruise in the inland waters of the United States, will not be ready to leave on the that had been set. The little boats are now assembling ot the navy yard in Brooklyn for repairs prior to their de parture The boats now there are the Porter, Erlccson and Foote. The Porter arrived from the proving rounds at Sag Harbor a few days ago. She is moored to the Cob dock, where repairs and alter ation* are being made In some of the minor machinery. The large torpedo tube which was lilted on the deck of the vessel af; for the purpose of testing the torpedo has been removed and the old one put in place. The Porter will be ready to leave the navy yard on Sep tember 29tli. It is not known how soon the Ericc son can be made ready for service. The boat is In bad condition and needs con siderable repairs. Her machinery ls badly shaken up and several parts will have to be removed and replaced with new ones. The vessel has never been satisfact ory. On nearly every cruise some parts of the machinery have been crlppledand she has been obliged to return to the navy yards for repairs. This was not ably so on her last cruise. She Is now at the navy yard incapacitated for serv ice. Her engines and her propeller shafts are disabled. One of the latter is twisted and it is believed to be cracked. One of the propellors ls so broken that It will be necessary to remove and re place it with a new one. On the way to the navy yard from the training station at Newport, the vessel ran into something in the Sound. It is not known what it was. It twisted the shaft and broke the propellor blades. The vessel will be dockedas soon as one of the dry docks now available can be prepared to float her. The flotilla as far as is known, will consist of the following boats: The Foote, Dupont, Ericcson, Porter, Cush ing and Stiletto. They will assemble in the lower bay before starting on their cruise along the coast. The Foote, which arrived at the navy yard a few days ago from Norfolk, Va., is looked upon as a failure. On her trial trip she barely made the speed required by the builders' contract. Since then she has never equaled it. On the trip from Norfolk to this port, she made ar« average of only 12 knots. The contract called for a speed of 25 knots. Lieutenant Commander W. W. Kim ball will, in all probability, when the torpedo boats are ready for their cruise, take the Porter, which is the fastest and best, as his flagship. They are expected to be ready about October Ist. They will go along the coast to the Gulf of Mex ico and then up the Mississippi river as far as St. Louis. It is expected that the cruise Will last about six months. THE TANTIC FOR THE LAKES WASHINGTON, Sept. 24.—The Navy Department has ordered that the steam corvette Yantic be turned over to the Chicago Naval Militia organization.

The vessel will proceed by way of the St. Lawrence river, Lake Ontario and the Welland Canal. At Erie, Pa., the Yantic will be turned over to the Chicago Naval Militia officers. She will proceed then cc to Chicago and there be housed over winter. In the spring she will be made ready for steam cruises on the lakes. The sum of $20,000 has been expended on the Yantic for repairs.

The Ranger, cow lying in the stream, would also be available. The Charleston is dismantled and re quires extensive repairs, which, if t*e work is not rushed, will take a year to complete. THE WILD WEST Wants Some Religion Shipped From the East BOSTON, Sept. 24.-The Christian Register publishes as its leading article and indorses editorially a remarkable appeal for the rescue of the peopleof the San Joaquin Valley from what is viv idly pictured as a slough of immorality and'church neglect. It ls signed by Sarah Pratt Carr, and says in part: At this time of the annual metting of the national conference we, who live so far away that we cannot attend its de liberations, hope some consideration will be given, the field In the West. Re straints which license and curb ma terial ambitions in older States do not exist here. The refinements and Intel lectual pleasures of older States do not exist here. In many of the towns of this great San Joaquin Valley, there ls absolutely nothing in the way of amuse ment between the all-night ball and the religious revival. The class which at tends balls "takes in." the revival as the next best thing for fun. The class which takes the revival seriously be lieves all ball-goers eternally lost, and there Is a continual feud between, them with occasional backsliders from each elde. Will not New England and other rich Unitarian territory hear this cry from the "Sunset State" and' send us their religious life and people for our moral betterment? YANKEE WORKMEN Save an Abandoned Steamer Worth a Million NEW YORK,Sept. 24.— News has been received of the saving of the British steel steamer Ethel Gonda, which went ashore in the harbor of St. Lucia, West Indies, last June.

Prince Esterhazy will accompany her and immediately upon their arrival they wlll be married in Lake county, I pre sume, for her home is there. "Because they have preferred to be married In this State it must not be ar gued that either Mrs. Langtry or Prince Esterhazy regard the former's divorce as lacking in legality in any other juris diction. On the contrary, they are ad vised by their solicitors in London that the decree granted at Lakeport has freed her absolutely of Edward Langtry so that she may marry in any part of ths world If she so chooses."
