The II. H. Holmes Again Out sails the Three Broth ers, and Secures the Stakes. REVIEW OF THE PENSANT RACES. Searlo Outrowa O'Connor on the Thamcs'-Lindsley Athletes Twice Successful-Other L'aseball (lames -Sporting Gossip. Hudson county yachtsmen found much to lntereet them In tin vicinity of the Pavonia Yacht Club s quarters on the Communipaw shore of New York Bay yesterday afternoon and last evening. The chief question of interest in the afternoon was whether or not the fast sailing qualities of the cat-rigged yacht H. H. Holmes were superior to those of her old-time rival, the Three Brothers. The principal feature of the evening's gathering Was the jubilee held by Cap tain A. J. Kreymeyer and his friends, be cause the second race between the craft had demonstn'-ed the fact, indicated by the result of the first race, that the H. H. Holmes was the better flyer of the two. As in the previous „race, which the Holmes won by Ave minutes, yesterday's contest was exceedingly exciting through out. At. no time were the craft fifty seconds apart. The course was about twenty nautical miles long, the starting and finishing foiuts beimi off a stakeboat anchored near liberty Island. The turning points were buoy 15. a stn-keboat off Graveseud and Fort Lafayette. The signal to start was given at two o'clock, and tue crat't at once got the advantage of a strong breeze blowing east northeast. The Three Brothers skimmed across the liue ten seconds ahead of the Holmes. While standing down through the Narrows the Holmes over hauled and passed the other yacht. She turned Buoy If» fifty seconds ahead of the Three Brothers, but soon fell away somewhat. On the way to Gravesend'the Three Brothers gained tweuty seconds. All the way home the craft fought for every possi ble advantage, and the Holmes again in creased her lead. Captain Kreymeyer was at her helm and Captain Charles Stover was handling the other craft. With the wind still blowing strong, they neared the finish, the Holmes cross ing it exactly fifty seconds ahead, her actual time for the distance being 2 hours aud 48 minutes. She guve the Three Brothers five seconds time allowance. The judges, Frank Oliver, Miles Con nelly and A. F. Adatns, accompanied the craft over the course in the big sloop yacht. Phantom. After the finish F. W. Rickerts, the stakeholder, handed over to Captain Kreymeyer a check for $250, the amount wagered by each skipper on the result of the series. STOCKTONS SUCCUMB. The Llndsloy Athletics Take Tliem into Cuxnp at Oakland Park. The team of the Liudsley Athletic Club, of this city, aud the strong Stock tons did battle Saturday afternoon at Oakland Park before several hundred spectators, and the Stocktons were worsted. A couple of clean hits and careless fielding work let the Lindsleys score four runs in tlieir first inning, and this lead virtually gave them the vie toiv. The stick work of botli teams was marred by the effective delivery of the opposing pitchers. Lnrkin held the Stocktons down to three clean hits aud struck out fourteen of their batsmen, while Welsh twirled so good that the Lindsleys only secured five straight hits, and twelve of them fanned out. Neither team gave its buttery fair support in the field. The score follows:— STOCKTONS. I LISD3LKY Λ. C. It. lB.PO. À.E. It. 111. PO.A.E.

Several interesting phases illustrating the uncertainty of baseball wore devel oped in the National League pennant race by the games of the past week. Chicago ousted Philadelphia from third place only to be dispossessed several days later by the Quaker City club. Pittsburg con tinued upon the toboggan longenough for Indianapolis to rout her from sixth place. New York gradual ly crawled up upon Boston only to fall off again, the loss nearly counterbalancing the gain. She, how ever, fared better than the other clubs, winning five of seven games. Boston, Philadelphia and Indianapolis were closo behind, each having scored lour victories to three defeats. Washington and Clevelaud were next in favor, each recording three successes and three losses. Chicago won four of Seven en counters, aud Pittsburg lost six of seven. Duriug the ensiling week the Eastern clubs will each have six games nt home. ! Cleveland and Chicago will alternate be I t ween New York aim Chicago, and Pi'ts j burg and Indianapolis will do likewise between Philadelphia and Washington. Kuch series comprises three games. The record to date follows:-— cues. w. l. per. Boston ..07 :-iS ,GIW New York «7 10 .liai Philadelphia...Ï7 51 -5y7 Chicago 5S 56 .B13 ( j.ens. w. l. per.

Having at last obtained the lead Brooklyn retained it by maintaining her splendid winning gait, which was augmented by the fin η k"ln g of St. Louis, the result being two victories by forfeit for Brooklyn, lier record for the week couuts six successes against one defeat. Columbus ami Baltimore fared next best, the former having won four of five games, and the latter three of four. Kansas City scored four victories to two losses, the Athletics dropped three of live games, St. Iiouis and Cincinnati each won only one of live and Louisville lost five, winning none. As in the National League the Eastern cluos will spend the coming week at home. Kacli is scheduled to play five games. St. Louis is booked for two en counters in Brooklyn and three at Phila delpliia, Louisville changing otï with her. Kansas City is slated for three games in Baltimore aud two at Columbus, aud Cin cinnati is booked for exactly the reverse. Here is the record:— CLUBS. W. L. PCT. j CLUBS. W. L.

Worcester played five games aud won all, Newark captured four of six, Hartford only got one of four. New Haven won two of three, Lowell dropped one of five, aud Norwalk dis banded after losing two.

Through the International League's games of the past week Toronto managed to overhaul and pass Toledo. London also made an admirable spurt and con trived to tie Toledo for fifth place. She won five successive victories, while Toledo dropped three of four games and Toronto broke even ou six. Detroit duplicated Toronto's record of the week, Syracuse won two of five encounters, Rochester re versed these figures, Buffalo scored two losses and two successes and Hamilton met with three defeats.

A jolly game of ball was played at the Bellville Pumping Station Saturday by the married and single men of the John J. Harrington Association. The old bachelors were too much for the bene dicts, and when darkness forced the um. pire to call the game, the "Singles" were victors by a score of 19 to 9. When the game was over the players feasted and had a pleasant time. The "Singles" would like to receive a chal lenge from any of the city departments. Wanted to Do Up the Watchman. William Brown, of No. 84 Canal street, was arraigned before Justice Stilsing, this morning, for atrocious assault and bat tery. James B. Lewis, an old man, who is employed as a watchman near the Jer sey avenue canal bridge, said that last evening Brown struck him in the mouth, and threatened to "lay him out" with a big club, which he curried, "if he had to do three years for it." As the opportune arrival of Po liceman Nugent prevented the assault from progressing further, Brown will do only tkree months for it at Snake Hill. A Car Driver's Great Fortune. It is rumored that Joseph A. Morse, formerly of Bostwick Plains, this State, but for the last six years a driver for the Jersey City and Bergen Railroad, has falleu heir to ίϋΰ,ΟΟΟ from an uncle in the West.

The Listener has a venerable friend who is very deaf, being able to hear con versation only through a long flexible tube with a trumpet at its extremity. This old gentleman knows how to use his silence compelling veto in a most graceful way sometimes. Xot long ngo he did a vouug man a favor which was of immense valuo. The youth overwhelmed with gratitude, visited his benefactor, and seized the ear trumpet with emotion. "Oh, Mr. he exclaimed, "I can never"-— The old man removed the other end of the tulic from his ear. The youth found himself talking to thin air. He went off into a ridiculous pantomime of entreaty, all the while brandishing the unconnected ear trumpet. The old man smiled. "There are times," he said, "when it is very convenient to be deaf." The young man was obliged to go awav without having communicated to his benefactor a single word of tliauks.-— Uonton Transcript. He Wasn't Anxious. "John, wake up! I hear a noise in the kitchen.

(The beginning of thi* clutrminy ntnru appeared in THE SU XT) A Y MOUSING JfJSiY$ of yesterday.) The next day the two tvomen beheld Nellie's bewitching face, drawn and col ored with all the fervor of an art which loves, smiling from Ernst's canvas. Tiio younger blushed and bridled with joy to Bee herself there and so beautiful; the elder wore a fixed, mechauical smile, and eald repeatedly, "What an excellent like nessl" He had never put Janet's face into his creations. She did not blamo him for that; she believed that he could do noth ing agreeable with it; she surveyed her self in the glass and sighed, "I am so tiglyl" But to see Nellie on that easel, painted by his hand and painted so wll, it was driving a dagger into her beating heart. That very day Ernst, in a fit of noble remorse and self sacriiico, said to Janet in privato, "I Wish you would let aie in form Nellie of our troth plight. I think it would be petter." She grew so faint, under the terrible revelation which he had unintentionally made, that for a moment she could not answer liim; cud even whea sho'spoke, it was only to ask for delay. "Stopl" eho said, pressing her hands upon her eyes. "Let me think. I must consider this." Ko offered to slide his arm around her waist in his usual caressing style; but sho gently stopped him, looked earnestly in his faco, smiled with an unspeakable piteousuess, and gently glided away ; her wholo manner saying, "Ah, my darling! you don't wish to do it, and why do you 'do it?" "Is it nossible that she ffomnrehends me? thought Ernst, folding hie arms and shaking his head with tho air of a man who is trying to stand firm against him self. Ho appreciated fully tho self abne gation and heroism of Janet's character; he knew that if ho once confessed to her that he did not lovo hor, she would in stantly free him from his engagement; and there was the image of Nellie plead ing with him for his sake, if not for hers also, to make the confession. Ho shook his head and set his teeth until he had faced down the temptation, and had de cided that, whether Janet permitted it or not, he would inform her cousin of tho betrothal. But during the day, while superintend ing her classes with her usual conscien tious thoroughness, Miss Uolcum also camo to a decision. On reaching homo in the afternoon she sent Nellie out on some distant errand, and then walked slowly up to Ernst's room. "My tear Chanetl I am so glad to see youl" he said, coming towards her with extended hands and his sweetest smile. "My poor child, you look tired," he added, glancing pityingly at her unusually pale face. "There, sit down, und take some rebose. Do you see my bicture? I have made some changes." Raising her patient eyes to the canvas, Janet perceived that the portrait of Nellie had been so altered as to bo no longer recognizable. Throbbing with admiration for this man, who could divine her heart so perfectly, and who could do what must have been hateful to him at the mere bid ding of his sensitive conscience, she rose up with suddenly flashed cheeks, seized both his hands, printed one hot kiss on his smooth, white forehead, and then drew back, holding him at arms' length, In order to worship him. "Ernst, I know what you have done," she said, firmly. "I thank you for your noble intentions. But sacrifice for sacri fice! It is my turn now. Ernst, my own darling, we must separate. I was boru for you, but you were not born for me. Wo must end this engagement. I must end it, or despise myself. I do end it I break it. You are free. There I" She tore herself away from him and attempted to rush out of the room. "Chanet! Chanet!" he called, spring ing after her and seizing her in his arms, "β must not po so. Yon are the noplest woman on earth. I worship you. 1 can not lose you." "Oh, don't 1" implored Janet, looking up at him in despair, for ho was taxing her almost beyond her strength. After a moment, rallying all the power of her soul, she added: "See here, Ernst! lot us speak the truth. Do you lovo mo better than you lovo any ono else?" How could he have the seeming cruelty to answer her "Ko?" He did what most gontle hearted men would have done—ho told her a pitying, self sacrificing false χιυυα. nu &cuu, χ uu. Sec was too clear sighted to be deceived, and too high souled to accept au unwill ing heart. "Look at this Bible, Ernst," she con tinued, drawing from her pocket a little Testament that never quitted her "Put your hand upon it;" and here, seizing his fingers, she clasped them around the book "Now tell me whether you love me better than any other." "You trife me into a gorner," replied the artist piteously. "Well, I swear. I swear that I resbect unt atmiro you more than other human peing. Is it not enough!" "Do you love Nellie?" "She is so lilie"— he stammered. "Woll, she will soon bo in love with you," said Janet, with a last supreme effort. "Take her. Make her happy. " Sho had been leaning away from him. Sho now turned, with the revulsion of a billow, threw her arms around his neck, cohered his face with kisses and tears, and then onco more leaned back from htm to look at him. "That is the end of all between us,"sho said, in a hoarse, deep voice, totally un like her usual utterance. "Henceforward I shall do my duty, and you must help me do it. Ono thing—never tell Nellio this: it would darken tier happiness. And now —good-by." She dragged herself away from him, ran down stairs, and locked "herself in her room. "Moin Gott!" murmured Ernst, loft to himself. "I shall lose a heart worth den tousand of mine. But it is potter. Sho is wiser. I could not lofo her. 1 should end by making her unhappy as now—und more so. Sho is wise for us poth." The next day, to the astonishment and annoyance of Nellie Fisher, but by the positive dictation of Janet Holeum, tho two women removed from their lodgings to α cheap boarding house. There was, however, one good thing about thachango: the boarding house had a parlor where Mr. Hartmann could be received with a sense of spotless propriety; and, what was delightful, he always had to be re ceived by Miss Fisher, the elder cousin excusing herself on pretense of business, illness, etc. Ouo can easily see that all this had to end in a second troth plight, and that tho parties to it could not be other than Ernst and Nellio. It was "pottor;" youth must have youth; love must havo love. In these bargains mere respect and gratitude aro not a fair ex change for the unreasoning, instinctive, potent impulse of the heart. Almost the first use that Nellio made of her betrothal was to run down to Ernst's •tudio: entirely, she declared, to look at tho no-.v picture; but mainly, no donbt, to look at the artist. 8ho, too, liko Janot boforo her, observed a change in tho per sonages of tho littlo drama. Sholiad never known that her likeness had been obliterated, and she did not discover it now, (or it had boan restored in all itu beauty. Bat in tho ft.ee of one of the principal femalo ligures, α face which, though not absolutely handsome, was sublime with an cspression of noblo and tender resignation—in tlib face, which lookod up to heaven as if it had descended from thither, Nellie recognized the coun temuico of Janet Holeum. "Why! you have got in Cousin Jennie, too," csclaimed the delighted girl. "Oh, you ercature! you have modo her finer than me." "I wanted to tignify the baintiny," said Ernst, simply, "with the bortralt of the pest woman in the world." "Isn't she!" replied Ncliic, pressing her face gratefully against his Bhouldcr. "I am so glad you do her jusiku. I ον.·β everything to her. Oh! I v.c'ijdn't cause her a grief for the -world." The picture having been sold to lioi neau for '.he largo sua of ί|>750, it was de cided that Ernst's prospect;; of success wero good enough to justify marricgo, and Janet ruled tlxat Nellie must go home for that purpose to the residence of on old aunt in Connecticut. The girl having departed. Janet felt able to havo one interview with Iiaraann, not with the object of indulging in any weak reproaches or bemoanings, but to bid bfcaa a last farewell.

By order of the Board of Street and Water Com missioners. GEORGE T. BOUTON, Clerk. Dated Jkbsey City, September 6, 1889. "OH! I wouldn't cause hep. a grief FOIi THE WOKLD." "Oh, it Is too farl" implored the young man. "If you must go away, let it pe still in this gountry. There is tho Freed - men's Bureau schools in the south. " "People return from the south," she replied. "I must go whence I shall never return. " It was the only complaint, the only cry of despair that was uttered by this martyr, at least in human ears. When Stanley heard of Miss Holcum's proposed departure he said to Ernst in surprise: "1 thought she was to be your mis sionary. What I have you taken the mit ten? Oh, you clever dog! You know the difference between an old maid and a new one." "See here," said the German, with solemnity. "I do not want you, one of my pest vriends, to desbise me; und I want you to rosl>eet Miss Jlolcum as she ought to be resbected. I will dell you everything, und you must dell no one. " Before he had half finished his story of the broken engagement Stanley rose from his seat, dropped his cigar and walked up and down tho room, rubbing his eyes with his hands just like an affected boy. "By Jove!" he exclaimed, when the nar rator had ceased "If she wasn't in love with you, I'd bo tempted to marry her myself. She's not a chicken, and she's not a beauty, but she's pure gold." "She's a berfect lady un· a grand gen tleman in one," said Ernst. The urgencies of the board sent Janet off to Ceylon before the marriage. Hart mann and Stanley accompanied her as far as tho Narrows, and then from the deck of the tug watched her as sho leaned over the taft'rail, waving farewell to friends and native land. As the lonely figure of this loving, self sacrificing, heroic, sublimo martyr faded from their sight the American said: "God bless herl" And the German added, with his eyes full of tears: "Saacta Clianet. ora pao nobis!"
