bering the victory they won from the
leaders at Oakland Park almost a fort
night ago, the erstwhile tailenders played
ball for keeps yesterday afternoon,, and
consequently gathered another game
from Manager Power’s pets. The local
club’s success was due to Sworbach’s
brilliant pitching and the lively manner
in which they touched up Landmauu’a
Seven scattered singles and five long
files were all the visitftrs were able to
get from the sulky twlrler. In retnrn he
struck out ten of the men they sent to the
bat, assisted in a neat double play and
made nine fielding assists. From Land
mann’s pitching the local club batted two
three-baggers, eleven singles and nine
long flies. Five of the latter were deftly
captured by “Patsey” Friel and three by
The encounter was hard fought in the
earlier part, the Jerseymen scoring once
in their first chance. The local club did
not tally until their fourth inning, and
then they only tied the score. Each club
added another run in its fifth heat. In
the sixth Inning the home club took the
lead by scoring again. A butting streak
aided It to double its runs in the seventh.
In their last inning the Jerseyites rallied
but their work only yielded a single run.

The New Jersey Athletics Beat Brooklyn
The semi-professional Lees, of Brook,
lyn, gave the team of the New Jersey
Athletic Club, who should have won with
ease, a tongh tussle for victory yesterday
afternoon on the Avenue A grounds at
Bergen Point. They freely hit Beebe’s
delivery, dropping the ball frequently just
over the inlielders’ heads for safe hits. In
addition Al. Williams hustled the ball In
the eighth inning far to the right for a
home run. The hits were too scattered
to be very effective for run getting. Nine
were made in the lirst seven Innings,
and onlyXtwo runs were tallied.
Worth's pitching was also batted fairly
■well by the local team, although they
were unable to bunch the hits and there
by earn the runs they gathered. Catcher
Collins’ wild throwing and his brother’s
errors contributed materially to the home
club’s success. A drive for three bags to
the left by Billy Wild preceded William’s
home run and earned the applause of the
spectators. Up to the seventh inning the
local club played a perfect fielding game,
making three brilliant double plays in
the first four innings.
The visitors came within an ace of tie
ing the score in their last chance through
two clean hits, a sacrifice hit, a wild
pitch and a base on balls. Tho Bcore;—

Contracts and Releases, and an Effort to
Fill the Vacant Franchise.
Secretary Braden, of the Atlantic Asso
ciation, issued yesterday the fpUowing
circular:—“Contracts—With Wilkesbarre

P. Hines; June 24, by Wilkesbarre, Ed
uard Williams and F. Murphy.
A special meeting of the Atlantic Asso
ciation was held last evening in the Fifth
Avenue Hotel, New York city, for the
purpose of taking action toward lilliug
the vacancy occasioned by the disband
ment of the" Easton Club. Managers Pow
ers and Burnham arrived late. The dis
cussion resulted in a decission to send
Messrs. Braden, Dang aud Bogert to
Scranton and other cities to see which
place will offer the best inducements for
Easton’s franchise. The committee will
report tomorrow morning at the Wyom
ing Hotel, in Scranton, to the Association.
It was also decided to reserve the defunct
club’s players for the purchase of the
franchise, and in consequence those

The Men Will “Weigh in” Today and
Meet Within Forty-eight Hours.
Jimmy Larkins, of this city, and Bill
Hook, of Birmingham, England, will light
within the next forty-eight hours and
within one hundred miles of this city for
the 122 pound championship of the world
$500 a side und an extra purse of $600.
During the day Hook will arrive from At
lantic City with Tommy Barnes, his
traiuer, and Ned Holske, his hacker. Ac
companied by a small party of friends
Hook will meet Larkins and several of
his friends at an uptown Turkish bath
establishment in New York city, and both
will “weigh in” for the battle. Neither
must pull the beam at more than 133
The near approach of the nght has in
creased the interest and excitement
among the sporting fraternity of the
county. There is great hnstling among
the local contingent to secure tips to the
battle ground, and the chances are that a
considerable number will be disappointed
in their expectations to witness the fray,
as the attendance of spectators has been
limited to a certain few, with the prices
of tickets placed at $10 each.
Hook has been in active training during
the past four weeks, and is reported to 1ms
in the best of condition. He is conlideut
of success, and his backer declares that he
will have a regular picnic with Larkins.
They are unxious to back their opinions
with a large quantity of boodle. The
money will find ready takers at even
Larklus has been undergoing a rigid
course of training during the past three
weeks at the quarters of the Scottisli
Americau Athletic Club in tills city, and
he appears to be in better condition than
ever. This is his lirst battle since his
light with Steele, of Boston, whom he de
feated In seven rouuds. He is down to
weight. He has $350 to place upon him
self, so conlideut is he of victory.
Pugilistic Cross Counters.
Tommy Kelly, the Harlem Spider, now
says he is perfectly willing to accept the
offer of the Troy Cribb Club, to light
“Chappie” Morau, the 105-pound chant'
pion of this city, for the *500 purse which
the club has volunteered to make the ob
ject of a battle between tho bantams.
The pair will probably come together
within a month.
Sidnev Crawford wants a go at “Chap
pie” Morau. Frank Donovan, or any other
105-pound man. within six weeks, for
from $100 to $500 a side, and says his
money can be found at William llorst

A Brilliant. Party Assembled In What
Was Once the K vans Mansion, but Is
Now an Klognnt and Well-Appointed
Club House.
Tho Toffey Guards threw open the
doors of their new home last night and
invited their friends to inspect its interior
appointments. It is the old Evans Man
sion, in Willow Court, converted into a
modern club house—as a cozy, and bright
as the tiest of them.
The scene in and about the place last
evening was impressively picturesque,
and drew a large crowd in addition to t-h
lucky ones who gained admission. It was
simply a mammoth tableau vivant, with
a circular frame of flags aud Chinese lan
terns. Calcium and other lights shone
brightly on the picture.
Tlie remodelled mansion was filled with
a brilliunt company.
The parlor is 17x33 feet in dimension.
In the centre of the floor is the Guard’s
monogram. Handsome pictures, bronzes
and bric-a-brac adorn the walls and man
tels. The main reception room is hand
somely furnished, and is also embellished
with pictures and bronzes, aud is sepa
rated from an adjoiuing room by heavy
silk portieres.
On tho centre-table last night was a bed
of flowers, aud a crayon portrait of Colonel
Toffey rested on an easel diagonally across
from the entrance. On tho second floor
are located the billiard and card rooms.
The Reception Committee last night
consisted of William White, Thomas A.
Butler, W. J. Thompson, Henry Borne
maun and Harry Arthur. Prior to dancing
the guests were entertained otherwise in

Good music by a selected orchestra was
one ot the principal features of the pro

"Near It,” and “Don’t Blame Me.” Some

F. Greis, assisted by his brother, the
tiniest club swinger iu the world.
Dave Deed sang humorous selections
iu his own inimitable man
ner, and Oscar Kent rendered
"Goodby, Sweetheart, Goodby,” George
W. Pairson gave a recitation. The Wynn
oke B. C. Quartette, Messrs. Will F.
Schum. P. O. Stutzman, J. P. Stutzman
and J. H. McCaffrey, sang several pieces
harmoniously, and Mr. J. P. Stutzman
gave a baritone solo. The mimic, Her
man Gndewlll, of Hoboken, whose re
markable resemblance to Bill Nye is a
subject of comment, sang "His Funeral
Will Be Tomorrow,” and his great laugh

Amateurs Present “Enoch Arden” and
Score a Snecess.
The Hoboken Dramatic Association
gave a pleasing production of “Enoch
Arden’’ last evening. In the interval be
tween the first aud second acts the Second
Regiment Field Baud, under the direction
of Drum Major Louis C. Philibert, gave
an exhibition drill. Enoch Arden was
played by Mr. John J. Cuddlhy, who car
ried his part well. Miss Tillie Huncke, as
Annie Lee, made the hit of the evening.
She is an emotional actress of unusual
ability. She has a clear, sweet voice, and
she sang the interpolated lullaby—by
Professor Roundsvflle Williams — in a
most affecting manner. Joseph A. Smith,
as Philip Ray, scored a success; aud so
did Charles E. Dougherty iu the comedy
part of Peter Lane.
The Cecillian Quartette sang several
selections and were recalled thrice. The
quartette was comprised of E. Gbrmau,
first tenor; E. Boys, second tenor; W. 1’.
Dickson, first bass, and J. Whitlidge,
second boss.
It would not be fair to close without
saying something about the little village
dancers. Pretty little May Kivlon, at
tired in a pink dress, led the dancers.
She Is barely eight years of age, but she
went through her part splendidly. The
other dancers were Annie Kevlon, Lillie
Bunt, Lily Flesey, C. Kevlon, C. Wareing
and J. Kelly. Master C. Wareing and
Miss Maggie Henry deserve mention for
the wny in which they played as Walter
and Esther, the children.
Marriage Failed in Two Months.
Recorder McDonough, of Hoboken, this
morning arranged amicably a little difll
culty between Mrs. Gussio Whilms and
her husband, Peter Whilms, who up to
today resided together at No. 319 Park
avenue, Hoboken. Peter is about fifty
flve years of age and his wife is about
twenty-live. The cause of their trouble
w^s the disparity of their aces.
Whilms has been married before, but
Gussle has made but one venture and she
has found it a failure. They were married
about two months ago. This morning
Peter offered to pay her $3 a week and
give his wife a portion of the furniture,
and such ail arrangement was mode.
The Little Runaway Was Hungry.
Frank Prigge ran away from home two
or three days ago. His parents heard
nothing of him until this morning, when
he was arrested for stealing bread from a
baker’s wagon on Washington street. He
said that he was starving and tliat the
sigiit of bread tempted him. As he is only
eleven years old, the Recorder allowed
him to go home with his mother.
Hurt by a Hocshcail of Sugar.
A hogshead of sugar fell on the right
leg of David Burns, a longshoreman, on
the Rotterdam steamship wharf, yester
day, and fractured it. Burns was at
tended by Dr. McGill and taken to his
. home.
A Romance of the Fire in the
Opera Comique, at Paris.
[Letter from « young girl residing In the country
to her loteaded.|
Paris, Slay 25.
You reproach mo, my friend, for not
writing to you more frequently. This
reproach gives me pleasure, because it is
an indication that 1 am constantly in
your thoughts. But you add that as
for myself, 1 scarcely ever think of you,
even when the fever of Parisian life gives
me time. To punish you for your unjust
suspicions, sir, 1 shall make no reply to
that remark; besides, mamma has told
me that a young girl should conceal her
Yea, during the five days that we have
been in Paris I have not taken the time
to think of you, there! Is not this my
right? We have so much to da At 2 a.
m. we are still on our feet, and at 8
o’clock In the morning we are up again.
Not an instant of repose; not a single
minute which can be devoted to thoughts
of you, sir. Wo are hardly dressed be
fore we must stop into the carriage and
be driven swiftly—to the Louvre, my
friend? No, to the Printemps: then to
the Bon( Marche, and as far as the Saint
Antoine quarter; for we must not only
adorn your bride, we have also to think
of furnishing the house where you are to
take your wife. Poor horses! How glad
they must be to enter the stable in the
1 will not comparo myself to the horses,
or you might be led to suppose that I
would be glad to go home. Paris is very
amusing; papa and mamma have re
newed their youth. They say it is due
to the atmosphere of Paris. From one
end of tlie day to the other papa lias
! a succession of new ideas, and he is con
i tinually urging us and hurrying us for
ward. We have hardly reached a place
before he wants to take tis somewhere
else; he calls us tortoises, and declares
that we will never be able to see every
thing. All, my friend, Parisian life is
not a sinecure.
Mamma is well pleased, and wants
papa to take her everywhere lie used to
go when lie was a young man. So we
breakfast in one restaurant and dine in
another. “I know all the good places,
you see." These words are continually
in papa’s mouth. Very well, let me tell
you, between ourselves, papa did not
lead a dull lifo when he was a young
man, and he must have spent his parents’
money very freely. Yet the other day,
when poor Henry asked him for a larger
allowance, he answered that in his time
young people were satisfied with cheap
restaurants, and that his son ought to
follow his example. And, behold, papa
tells us today that when he was young,
his good places were Vefour’s, the Paris
cafe, the English cafe, Ledoyen’s, and
many other restaurants where we eat a
lot of good things that are not mentioned
in mamma’s “Perfect Cook Book.” Last
evening we dined in a restaurant where
papa asked if a waiter named Eugene
was still there: and on receiving an af
firmative reply, expressed a desireio see
the man, saying that Eugene used to
wait upon him in old times when he fre
quented the place. Eugene came, but
he was not papa’s old waiter. It ap
peared that this one was Mr. Dumas’
Eugene. He seemed to answer just as
well, and pupa was delighted.
Speaking of Mr. Dumas reminds me
to tell you that 1 would have like very
well to see “Francillon," but they told
me that it is not a proper play for young
girls. As we passed the Palais Royal,
papa and mamma looked at the bill, and
they talked to each other in a low tone.
1 could not hear what they said, but it
must have been amusing, for they
laughed; and mamma said to me: “When
you are married your husband will take
you there.” So there aro some things
which one can’t hear or see before being
Papa and mamma are very happy, but
I am going to confess the truth to you; as
fer myself, I am tired of it. I don't tell
them eo. because I do not wish to mar
their pleasure. Perhaps Paris is very
amusing, but I am tired of it; so you
may be happy. It seems to me that I
am lost here; and I ask myself contin
ually how any one can endure this noisy,
distracted and agitated life. It seems
impossible that happiness can be found
here, since one does not have the time to
be happy.
Yet I expect to experience some real
pleasure this evening, the only pleasure
I shall have experienced since being sep
arated from you. They are going to take
me to the Opera Coinique. It appears
that this theatre is one for young girls,
and especially for young girls seeking
husbands. That is not my case; you
know something about the matter, sir,
you who have the precious honor of be
ing the elect of my heart. So the reason
for my pleasure is not that I am going
there to meet some one; on the contrary,
I would rather feel regret because you
will not be there; neither is it the curi
osity to see pretty girls display them
selves to handsome men. or homely girls
flirt with ugly men, in the hope of cap
turing husbands; It is tbe play itself.
They arc going to perform “Mignon."
Knowest thou the laud?
Hops nnt this tnnphim? mninnr.fi of
poor Mignon recall to you a sweet
memory? Do you sometimes think of it
again, of that summer evening when I
learned to know your heart, when I let
you guess mine? Do you recollect? I
was seated at the piano, in our parlor at
Plessis, and I hummed the song of Mig
non, You were playing whist. I sang
and I felt, even without looking at you,
that you wore not attending to the game,
and that your eyes were turned towards
me. 1 sang, and 1 was almost afraid to
sing. Stealthily I raised my eyes to you,
and I saw that you wore very pale, and
that your eyes seemed blinded with
tears. In my turn I became pale, in my
turn I was unspeakably affected, and I
ended the song with a sob.
Knowest thou the land?
Oh, when you came to me with out
stretched hands I seemed almost to faint.
I waa frozen, and yet it seemed that there
was a gentle heat In my heart. I no
longer dared to look at you You did
not tell me that you loved me, and yet I
was sure of it. Our love did not need
words for its avowu.1. And now do you
understand why I thrill deliciously at
the thought of hearing this evening the
darling Mignon, not the desperate Mig
non of the German poet, but the melan
choly Mignon of the dear French com
poser, to whom hope remains because she
is loved?
Knowest thou the land?
Oh, my friend, it is not of the land
with golden fruits and marble palaces
i that I dream. Nor is it of the land with
1 immense houses, six stories in height,
j with broad avenues still too narpow for
j the crowds which fill them, with its
| noisy and tedious pleasures, its perpetual
and useless agitation. It is not of the
land where the women dye themselves
yellow, where the men seem to be mad
j men running after something unknown;
‘ where we cannot venture into the streets
without incurring the risk of being
; crashed; where pleasure is a task; where
i even the activity of tho spirit destroys
the peaco of the soul. No, no; it is not
j there that I would dwell I
Knowest thou the land?
The land of my childhood, the land
where I grew up in the midst of dear
friends, in the little house whose old
I walls are decked with rustic vines, and
which is concealed from profane eyes
by green trees; the land where we live
i simply, without display, surrounded by
I those whom we love; the land where I
' have been twice bom, to life and to love.
! It is there, there, where thou dwellest,
my well beloved, that I long to live, to
j live and die in thy presence!
Behold, my well beloved, of what I
i shall dream this evening, in listening to
J Mignon. And am 1 not also your
