By defeating Detroit this afternoon 2 to 0, the Chicago team of the National league retained the title of .champion base ball team of the world. The present series differed but little from that of last year! The Chicago team, accord ing to critics, showed superior base ball in every department of the game in the series as a whole. De troit was handicapped by Schmidt's inability to cut down runners at sec ond, by the failure of her heavy hit ting outfield to bat at critical mo ments when hits meant runs. None of Detroit's pitchers seemed able to puzzle the Chicago batsmen, even Mullin, who pitched Detroit's only victory, being found for seven hits. The games were singularly free from squabbling and only on two or three occasions were the decisions of um pires questioned. At no time was it necessary for a player to be sent to the bench to enforce discipline and good order. The paid admissions were only $62,232 for the five games and the receipts totalled but $94,976 as com pared with $101,000 last year. The attendance at the final game this aft ernoon was 6210, with gross receipts of $9577.50. Of the money taken in the Chicago players get $27,6,69 and Detroit $18, 446; the club owners $19,681 each, and the National com mission $9497. A feature of today's game was Schmidt's recovery of his throwing arm, which had not been working well during any previous game. As a result Chicago was not able to steal a base on him. Overall for the second time pitched a master ly game. Only three hits1 were made off him. He was wild at times, giv ing four bases on balls, but on the other hand his strikeouts numbered ten.

Its promoters claim that its fields are as large and rich as those owned by Smith. Its main office is located in the east. The directors, who are for the most part eastern capitalists, are as follows: Thomas Ghorkildson, Charles de Guigne of San Francisco, John Stauffer, H. . Matther, and E.
