S. (Special.) The next to the last act in the Cleveland club's mefiodrama, "Driven from Home," came off in Philade'phia Park this after noon, with the Senatorial combination as the side attraction. The excessive heat and the rain which prevailed downtown about 3 o'clock, but which managed to miss the ball park, op erated disastrously against the attend ance, not over 1.5C0 people being present. The "Wanderers won the first" game, but Jt was not a victory over which they c-aul.i crew 10 any extent. They won be cause they made more runs, and that they did so was solely and entirely due to Herr Wagner, the shortstop of the "Wash ingtonlans. In the third inning he gave a hand-paintc-d exh Ibltlon of how not to fiOCd, making two fu-mbles, which netted the Clevetanders five of their six runs and gave them the game. Wrth this exception, the fielding of both teams was excellent. Both pitchers were effective. Ctrppy being the steadier and the more effective when, men were on toaes. The Senators jumped out in front at JlagfaJL Serbaeh was hit by a pitched ball. . Gettrnan went out on a fly to Wal lace, after which Andeion hit to the left Jield-waM for three liases, scoring Selbach, McGuire Hied to Blake, and Anderson came in. Farrell closed the inning with a. fly to Burkett. The Spiders did all their scoring in the third -Inning. Criger opened with a sin gle and Cuppy struck out. Burkett drew a base on balls. Childs hit to Wagner, whqjiermitted the ball to go through the natural archway made by his legs, Criger scoring. ilcKean singled, filling the lmses. Wallace came to time with a rat tHnsr,Jjase hit, Burkett and Childs scor ing. O'Connor flied to Anderson, McAleer hit one to Wagner, who couldn't handle it in time, and the bases were again filled. BlaJre'Shoved another one at Wagner, and again Wagner let it go through, ilcKean and Wallace tramping home and McAleer going to third. Blake started for second, and on the throw-down McAleer came in, Bkikebeing finally run out. The Senators mado their third run in the eighth on McKean's fumble of Ander son's grounder, McGuir?'s single and Far reli's fly to Burkett. The score: WASHINGTON AB. R. H. O. A. E.

Andy Freedman's folly has partially been atoned for by the payment of $1,100, the fine imposed by the league statute for withdrawing his players -from the field and refusing to play a game scheduled with the .Baltimore club on July 25. This case has been the occasion for much newspaper criticism, in which President Young camo In for his share of qensure, as it was charged that the forfeiture was occasioned by the unwarranted and ille gal acts of Freedman, in consequenco of which he incurred the penalty of a very plain law of the league, which di rects that the amounts of the fine $1,000 and $100 shall 'be collected by the secre tary and treasurer of the league within five and ten days, respectively, or, in case of failure, that the New York club should be disqualified. Although Mr. Young's duties were man datory, he, for some reason, concluded that he could not enforce the collection of the fine until Mr. Freedman had his day in court, yet after consulting with some of his colleagues in the league he has doubtless become convinced of his error and upon his demand Mr. Freedman has sent him a check for the full amount. Of course, Freedman pays under protest and the whole subject will come up for settle ment before the board of directors. The fine, unless remitted, will go to the Bal timore club, with the exception of, the 5100, which, oinder the law, cannot be re mitted. It is expected that President Young will call a meeting of the 'board at an early date. Haiti nt Cincinnati. ' " ' Cincinnati, Aug. S. Today's Boston Cincinnati game was postponed ' by rain. A double-header will be played tomor row. DIAMOND DUST. Tom Burns in Chicago seems to be the real thinp. Billy Donovan is trying l-ard to control that wild and untamed ball of his. "When Urcle Xick docs pet around to it there will be music bj the entire orchestra. .Tack Stiiitts pajs he would rather drive a beer wagon than to play ball in St. Louis. Urti'li. Hart and Spalding arc"likc- tho ly the calf run oier. They haen',i wonltq say ( Tim llurs.t has impoml fint- on his ball players In amount almost suftiuint to pay his own sal ary. " "Jud" Smith is undoubtedly a valuable And, and will prove a mainstjy in the Senator's in field. "The World of Sport," jubli'hrd in Chicago, in make up and enterprise, is an" up-t0-"tlatc sport ing journal. Mcrtes who vas released by Philadelphia, is now the pet of the Chicago fans, and the star plajcr of that club. Al Selbach, the prince of the Oerman legion, sajs the Milks are not in it with the Dutch when it" comes to plajirg ball. Since becoming llcnedicts Frd Clarke, of the Colonels, and John Anderson, of the Senators, are not plajing up to expectations. The editor of the "Tamnianj Times" is a ver satile journalit, jet hib time is wholly taken up with Tammany politics and polo ground riots. If Jack Uovle proves hi loyalty and fealty to the Almonor of the Xew York Club he will prob ably get an assignment on the police force of that city. "Old Reliable Mack" lKjlieiis that his duties as manager have detracted from his plajing abilities, hence his de-ire to be rehcoJ, froTi further re sponsibility in that direction. McCreeiy. formerly with the Colonels, and trad ed to New York in exchange for Stafford and Dad Cfark, and recently released by Xcw York by the Dude Boss for making an error, is now play ing wit'i l'itturg and putting up a game at centerfleld that has never been excelled in the Smoky City. A iweball magnate ays the knocking that Tom Burns and his friends aro giving Capt. An son through the press and otherwise is lery un just and ill-timed. Capt. An-on knows more about baseball in a minute than ever Burns knew, and has forgotten more than Tom can ever learn, and withal ib a quiet, unobtrusive gentleman. Xow that the white winged meccngers of peace are abroad in the land and all war events will soon be relegated to the memories of the past, business in all branches of industries will surely reive. The bos who come marching home who have had no opportunity to attend ball games will yet get their money's worth and will doubtless avail themselves of the oppor tunity. It has not been, a great while ago when nearly every porting writer in the country criticised Gus" Sehmelz for giving signs from the bench. Now thc-v are taking off their hats to Watkins of the Pittsburgs, for his success as a bench manager. Watkir.s, manages his club by signs from the bench and his repertoire of signals are twice as numerous as were Schmelz's. Nothing Eurcecds like success. "Tommy,"' said Tim Hurst, addressing Dowd, "I notice you trving to fascinate that Dulcenia in the grand stand wid dc red, white and blue shirt jacket and the bicycle panties on wid one cf these envidious smiles of yours, as Col. Uogers would say. Now I want that cut out, and I want ou to get your eye on the ball, or it won't take so long to settle wid you on pay day. Throwing Cupid cons is a lioodoo to a ball plav cr." "Parson" Ben Mnllfoid, of the Cincinnati Post, isin a happy frame of mind these days. He de votes his Sunday mornings exclusively to his Sunday School claps, in a painstaking cifoit to direct the youngster's thoughts to things spirit ual, coaches his pets, the Beds, from the press box in the afternoon, and not a wave of tiouble lolls between him and the bright anticipation of his fancy, which sees the pennant flag floating from a Mill Creek jack-staff. War unel Its Coht. The cost of the war during- July was about one million dollars a day. While the expense of tho navy -fell off very ma terially from the June record, the cost of the army increased very largely. The war has lasted a little over a hundred days, and has cost over a hundred mil lion dollars. In view of the results achieved, the sum Is not excessive. The result achieved from the investment of one dollar and twenty-five cents In Heu rich's Merzen Beer will not be excessive, considering the superior qualities of Heti rlch's famous beverage.

Meeting; of J'cvv York. Yuclit Club Called for Thurndny Mnrht. New York, Aug. 8. There was a large gathering of well-known yachtsmen at New-York Club Yacht Houoe tonight and the principal topic., of conversation was the coming challenge for the America's Cup. The communication from thc Royal Ul stel Club, stating that that organ ization would do itself the honor to issue a challenge for the blue ribbon of the seas, which was the first official notifica tion that a defl would be forthcoming, was acted on promptly, and a notice of a special meeting for August 11 was mailed to the members tonight. Commodore Morgan was not at the club house during 'the day, nor could be he seen at his office in Wall Street. Secretary Oddio and former Commodore Edward M. Brown, who was ,one of the Ameri ca's Cup committee during the last series of races, -were in close consultation dur ing -the afternoon, and then left the ground for Secretary" Oddie's Summer home at Amityville. Wliile the members 'of the club were willing to talk among themselves regard ing the challenge, no one would consent to air their views for publication. Secretary Oddie said: 'There will be no further news given out until the meet ing on Thursday night." THINKS SHE WILL WIN. Fife Conlideiit of the Shiinirock'n Victory, London, Aug. 8. Will Fife, Jr., the boat designer, according to whose designs the new racing cutter Shamrock, ordered by Sir Thomas Upton, is to be constructed, confirmed in an interview today all of the details concerning the yacht, which hnvp alreadv been cabled to The Times. He added that the cutter would cost i 60,000 pounds, and that he was confident she would win the America's cup. COUNTRY DANCE" A SURPRISE. The Thlrty-to-One Outsider PnllH Up In Front, tit Coimorunt. New York, Aug. S. A speculative crowd of good size sweltered at Brighton Beach today, and after an enervating struggle contrived to break about even with the bookmakers. Three favorites pulled through, and as Maher piloted two of them, it goes without' kiying that they were heavily-backed. The handicap for 'two-year-olds brought out a field of seven., J. E. Madden's stake candidate, Frohfainn, had a lump of weight up, but dSsptte' this be ruled' fa Vorlte at S'to 5. The result was a sur-, prise, as Country D'trtce, the neglected 30 to 1 outsider, won by a head from Cor morant, who had made all the running to the stretch. There was consternation when the numbers went up, as the unoffi cial opinion seemed to be that Cormorant had won. The sport opened In rather sensational style, as the first race was taken away from Rotterdam, who finished a length and a half in front, and was awarded to Long Acre. Summary: First race Mile and a sixteenth. Long Acre, C to 1, won; Squire Ablngton, sec ond; Gun Metal, third. Time, IMS. Second race Six fu: longs.

Sixth race One mile. Jefferson, 9 to 10, won; Grace Giltner, second; Master James, third. Time, 1:42. GOOD SPORT AT SARATOGA. Ouly T-vvo FavorlteH AVon Out Over Their Field. Saratoga, Aug. 8. The cloudy weather did not hurt the attendance at the track this afternoon, as it was again large. Although the card suffered somewhat by scratches and the track was slow after this morning's rain, .the sport was good. It was again a bad day for favorites, as two of them only got home in front of their fields. It was also a poor day for the backers of Tod SItfane, as that popu lar jockey only had one winner out of four mounts. The much-touted crack-a-jack two-year-old, His Lordship, sported feClk for .the first time in the opening race and scared (half of the field out. He open ed at 10 "to 2, but closed at even money. Hilee made the running and won by two lengths. His Lordship will do better later on. Hilee's owner was, called upon to ex plain the colt's wonderful improvement. He did so to thj sctisfcrotion of the stew ards, and nothing v,-as,;done in Uhe mat ter. Summaries: First race Five furlongs. Hilee, 5" -to 1, won; Hfs Lordship;. second; Aham, third.

Trouble In Krcwing Between Fltz nliiiiiiniiN uml Corbett Asbury Park..N. J,, Aug. 8. Trouble is brewing between Champion Robert Fitz slmmons and former Champion James Corbet t, When Fitzsimmons and his wife passed Corbett's bouse yesterday Corbett claims that Mrs. Fitzsimmons shook her fist at him and said, "Sorehead!" Fitzsimmons says the Corbett crowd raised an uproar and all began laughing as they drove by. Corbett called to Mrs. Fitzsimmons, he says, to send her monkey husband back to him. Mr. Fitzsimmons feels highly insulted, and said today that he would kill Cor bett on the spot if he ever Insulted his wife. He also said that he would have the third-rate fighter put out of the park or put him out himself. There Is every possibility that the two pugilists will meet face to face in the street and have it out. BILLY ERNST KNOCKED OUT. Joe Gnus Compels the Urooklyn l'uts Ut Bite the Dut. New Y'ork, Aug. S. When Referee Brown counted ten seconds In the elev enth round at the Greater Now York Ath letic Club tonight BRIy Ernst, the Brook Ijn pugilist, had not regained his feet, consequently there was nothing left to do but to declare Joe Gans, the colored fight er, of Baltimore, winner of what had been a fast and entertaining glove contest. It was Gans's first appearance here since he met Dal Hawkins a couple of years ago, and he made a good Impression on the snorting fraternity which was well represented. Gans '.will probably meet some of the crack lightweights now, as he claims to be made ol championship material. Ernst was plucky and took a hard thumping. His case was hopeless when lie was counted out, although he was not exactly asleep and wanted to go on. BOXING BOUT TONIGHT. Kid AVIlHon nnd Denny llnll to Meet nt Stenbner'h. Kid Wilson and Dennis Hall are in ex cellent .shape for their contest of twenty rounds 6r more, which will take place at Steubner's Road Tlouse tonight. Quite an interest' ls"'manffesfed In the outcome of this fight by local followers of the arena. Both men have trained faithfully and will be expected to give a good account of themselves. Joe Doyle, of Philadelphia, who is to meet Jack Farrell In a six-round contest, will reach the city this morning. Joe Fielden, the clever English light weight; called "at The Times office last night with Tom Boyd, his manager. Field en, who has been traveling and instruct ing Hall, thinks that Kid Wilson is a great hitter and too much of a ring gen eral for Dennis, though the latter is game to the backbone. Joe and his manager may go to St. Louis, as he is offered a purse, should Schiloh, of Pennsylvania, be afraid to meet him. INVASION OF BUGS. They Threaten Vetretntloii In Peiin sylvnnla nnd New Jeriey. Prof. L. O. Howard, an entomologist of the Department of Agriculture, has been summoned to leave the city to rejel an Invasion of chinch .bugs In Pennsylvania, Nenv Jersey and. Long Island. They also threaten 'to devastate the trees and shrtVHbery in 'ihe 'becrough of Brookln. They have already seized Prospect Park In that city as a. base of opera'dons and are strongly intrenched. The Long Island formers are in a s'tate of -grni: tnxety over the advent of the bugs, -and unless Prof. Howard can stop their progress It Is feared tha't the insects vr'Jbl cut a wi2e swath all the way to Qlontauk To'nt, at the extreme eastern end of the islanJ. A Cook Losch a. FiiiRer. Gustav Otte, a cook at the Metropolitan Club, iwas painfuICy injured while at work yesterday aftexnron Otte mas pisfln dishes on an elevator -Xrom the kitchen to the d'nlng-rcom of the club, and he caught the fingers of his righc hand in the machinery. He was taken to Emer gency iHrspitaH, -where it was found necessary to amputalte the first finger. lCstnsns "VHlom. (From the Atchison Globe.) MoSt men spend too much time acting on com mittees. Thirty years ago there was a charm about wa termelons that we do not notice now. A sixteen- car-old girl docs not seem to buffer from warm weather as much as her mother. Subject for dkcusssion at the Shannon literary tonight: Whicb is poorer, huntin;; or fishing? When the girls are in doubt as to whether a visiting girl's complexion is "real," they take her wading and find out. Families are usually the best conducted in which the wife does all the scolding. A man's scolding does no good. Of every man who "disappears," it is said that he was the last person in the world vvho would have been suspected of such a thing. PERFECT BEER ANOTHER POSTPONEMENT. Rain Again Prevents the- Meeting Between Mlchnel and Morun. A vast assemblage of devotees of cycle racing looked out upon the board track of the Park Cycle Club last night, which was brilliantly illuminated by myriads of electric lights, and eagerly awaited the beginning of the races which were sched uled to close with the meeting of Jimmy Michael and Al Moran In a ten-mile paced exhibition. Dark, overhanging- clouds, Intermittent flashes of lightning and peals of distant thunder failed to stay the crowd, and the large concourse present only served to accentuate the Interest centered In the race. When the hour appointed for the open ing race arrived and the officials began moving towards the judges' stand, a cool breeze was blowing from the east and the audience settled down for an enjoy able evening, but such was not destined to be the case. Suddenly the flood gates opened and a heavy downpour of rain forced the spectators to forget all about the races and seek shelter from the wrath of Jupiter Pluvlus, who apparently takes great delight In pulling off a matinee of showers' when the Welsh midget happens to be in town. A consultation between managers was held, with the result that the race was declared off for the night,- and a much disappointed yet merry crowd of wet and bedraggled spectators slowly filed out of the park and boarded the cars for the city. Andther attempt will be made to run oft the race tomorrow night at S:30. All tickets told la&t nigfct iwlll flje good r use Wednesday n'ght. WET DAY AT INDIANAPOLIS. L. A. IV. AVeek IJckIhk With a. Soak ing Itniu. Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 8. This, the firs't day of the L. A. W. week, opened with a soaking rain that continued until noon. The city Is gayly decorated with bunt ing, and the steady downpour had a dis astrous effect On the apparel of wel come. The attendance, however, prom ises to be all that was anticipated. Bald, Cooper, Taylore, Johnson and nearly all of the cracks are here and they speak highly of Newby Oval, the track which was built especially for the meet, Johnson's performance of Sunday, when he covered an eighth of a mile In 11 4-5, lowering the world's record, has given the cracks a high opinion of the track, and they predict that there will be plenty of records broken during the week. President Potter arrived this morning, and the Xew York contingent Is expected before Tuesday morning-. Before twenty-four hours from now this city will be handed over to the cyclists, who even now are pouring into the city to attend the nineteenth annual meet of the L. A. W. The interest In the matter and the en thusiastic wheeling town in which the meet will be held point to the best na tional meet of them all. The Indianapolis Meet Club, which has the matter in charge, has laid out an elaborate program of smokers, runs and entertainments of all kinds. They will begin tomorrow and continue until Sat urday night. The races at the new Newby Oval are the main topic of conversation and the racing men, trainers and enthusiasts gather about the hotels and discuss the chances of the big men in the champion ships. Bald is well thought of and he Is riding better than ever before this season. He Is willing- to bet an. additional 4500 on the result of his match with Cooper on Fri day night. The latter is going well, how ever, while Gardiner, on past form, should be among the winners. Orlando Stevens and H. B. Freeman are riding fast in the trials, while John S. Johnson and Major Taylor have done the fastest eighth of a mile sprints to date 11 4-5 and 12 seconds resoectively. At the poolroom in the city the figures on all the above men are 3 to 1 to win and even money for second pace. Some of the others run as high as 30 to 1, and considerable money is being wagered. There will be races on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons, as well as on Friday night, when the Bald Cooper match will be run off. Boston is in the field for the next meet, and a big delegation arrived tonight and proceeded to place itself in evidence. There is a strong feeling that the meet should go to Buffalo.
