After the Washington's had scored six runs off Diinkle, the Phillies put Platt in tha box, and he held them down for the other five innings without a run. After yesterday's game Scrappy Bill Joyce said, we have struck our gait, now watch us win that pennant. Ned Hanlon put his new find,Hughes, in the box against the champions, and he held them down to two hits, while Nichols was batted all over the lot. This Hughes must surely be a wonder, l it is getting a common thing for the Orioles to score a shutout. St, Louis won another game yesterday after twelve innings of play. | The Chicago's had a batting matinee ! yesterday at the expense oft lie Cleve land pitchers. Tile Orphans got eigh teen hits. r Nixon McCafferty of this city, who is pitching for the Pawtauekct Club oi the New England League, is pronounced by the ball cranks of that city as a wonder. They say he makes a batter look like it yellow dog. It is probable that before long all the infielders in the League will wear sliin guards, a la Steinfeldt of Cincinnati. Joe Corbett is still in the west. He if weakening, yet Balti more does not seem to be sadly in need (if bis services with their present corps of Ditchers. hows no signs Tim Uurst lias announced that Bier bauer is for sale to the highest bidder. : liiliy Nash is now playing regularly at 1 1 bird for the Phillies. Abbatchio is still ; laid up. Pitcher Jack Taylor wants Tim Hurst to trade him to Boston, but Tim lias said "nay, nay." Tim Hurst is confident that the Browns will take a brace and that they will still be heard from. Bill Wilson's throwing lias not im proved. The Colonels are still sadly in need of another catcher. Decker has not proved a success at first for St. Louis. Leftfielder Sheckard of Brooklyn, is playing a star game. A Chicago man says:—It is worth the prize of admission to see the way Bill Kveritt enjoys first base, lie has all the actions of a colt and is becoming more of a fan than the celebrated T. Donolme. Line hits, grounders, and foul flies are all one for the big fellow , and the more the merrier. He seems to be a natural first baseman of the new type and keeps either foot on the bag when after a wide throw as readily as if he had played the bag from infancy. Physically the Phillies are a fine lot of men, having several splendid specimens of manhood in Douglass. Lajoic, Dele hanty, Boyle, Thompson and Wheeler. "Billy Keeler is ns hard a man to pitch tons I know of," says Ainos Rusic. "You can't see more than six inches of bat the way lie grabs it. And when the pitcher has him in a hole lie shifts his grip and shortens the bat still more." Manager Stallings, of Philadelphia, is becoming apprehensive about, his pitch ing department, and is hoping for hot weather. None of the older members of the twirling staff are in anything like good simile. A week of real weather would doubtless bring Orth around all right. Albert is very much needed at this stage of the game. It is said the Cincinnati)) will put up in Brooklyn instead of New York tills season when they play in (he former place. This is the worst blow inflicted on the metropolis since Reuben Smoke house, the hayseed Hamlet, gave out the it < I read nows that lie would play in Now | York no more because his genius was not j appreciated. j i Cincinnati drew 10,(XlO people Sunday, and Chicago Ui.oOO.

Frank Erne lias had the x-rays applied to his injured arm, and no bones are broken. The Olympic A. C., of Birmingham, Eng., which recently disbanded, is to be I reorganized.

Bob Fitzsimmons was i asked. "Wait until he gets through with I Peter Malier. He will have his hands ; full in that contest," was Bob's answer. Tom. O'Rourke lias made the an | nomicement that his new club, which i will have its quarters at the Ice Palace, Clements;,, T 'l 1 *, 1 T, , Lexington Ave., New York, will bo known as the Lenox A. ('.

Out at Athens next Monday evening a fifteen-round contest has bee" scheduled between Charley Johnson and Mysterious Billy Smith, last night's affair between Johnson and Tracey having been declar ed ofi. Tom Sharkey says lie is at a loss to know how the recent contest between himself and Jefferies could have been given to his opponent. On the face of it, it does seem strange that anyone should he given tlie decision over Sharkey in San Francisco, judging from past records. McCoy is the favorite to beat Dublin at Syracuse on May 20 at odds 10 to 8. Articles of agreement have been signed for a twenty-round contest be tween Oscar Gardner, the "Omaha Kid," and Freddie Bogan, the feather we'glit of Cincinnati. The match is at 122 pounds, and the men are to weigh in at (i o'clock on the afternoon of the con test. ! I CYCLING!. I ' Jimmy Michael, the champion dts- \ tance bicycle rider ot the world, will, it | i.s said, ride race horses for the Dwver i Stable in races during the first week or I so of the Gravesend meeting, which opens with the Brooklyn Handicap, on to Mav 28. * The nmch-gpoken-of track at Wood side Park, Philadelphia, will be finished in it day or so. The opening meet will be held on the 28lli, and promises to be i» something out of the common. r Little Joe Vernier, of Philadelphia, j lias been matched to meet Edouard Tay- j lore, at Willow Grove, on DccoTation ! Day. i In speaking of the advantages of tan-; dem racing, an enthusiast gave as an ar- ; gmnent in favor of his hobby that the ; of couple so riding is likely to be more or less thrown together. In the Chickamattga Park encamp: I ment bicycles are much -in use, being [ employed for tile delivery of mails, the l at carrying of despatches by tinder officers, and in various ways. in it Next Saturday, on the Charles River Park track, Boston, will be the scene of the first middle-distance paced match race held in this country this season. It will be between Eddie McDuffie and F'ed J. Titus. Manager Shafer doesn't think Michael would ever be a jockey if he lived a thousand years. He believes that the racing people are "jollying" the midget with the belief that he would be a great jockey, when they know well that lie will never be. Their object in doing so, according to Shafer, is to kill the cycle racing game, which has effected their in terests. Whether this be true or not one thing is certain, that Michael would be one of the greatest attractions the racetrack people have bad in years. Two more racing cyclists arrived in New York from Europe Sunday on the La Touraine, to be added to the 'foreign colony of riders now there. They were "Jack" Robertson, the champion of England, and Frances Mercier of Paris, who comes to look after the interests of Paul Bouroutte, the middle-distance French crack. Robertson is twenty-six years old, more than six feet tali and weighs about 180 pounds, lie lias been called "the English Giant" and the "English Sanger." In 189(1 he twice de feated Jimmy Michael, once in a thirty and again a sixty-mile paced race. Jimmy Michael has tried the new cycle race track at the National Cycle drome, Ambrose Park, and pronounces it to be the fastest he had over ridden on. He added that witli proper pacing could break oil it all existing records. Tommy Butler, the Boston boy, is out to go through the entire National Circuit this season, hard. At present he is using a GO gear and is following pace of a quintuplet geared to 112. As time goes on his gear will its ing he ut by it He is training | gradually increase and lie will blossom j out as one of the speediest pedallers of j the season. Tliose.wlio saw Tom Butler ri,le >» »'II "ever forget the con : sninuiate ease with which ho cleaned up j the field day after day from August 14 to late in September. Cycling enthusiasts of Philadelphia will have another chance of seeing Ed ouard Taylore, the wonderful little French rider, when he meets Frank Star buck in a twenty-mile paced race at the Willow Grove track on Saturday, May In addition to this event there I 28. will be several amateur and profes I sional raws and an exhibition by Jimmy i Michael. "Track building in America is improv ing," said Jimmy Michael, after he had made the circuit of the Ambrose Park track. "I am quite certain that Amer ican tracks now will be just as fast as those on the other side of the ocean. I am in favor of marking off American tracks in kilometres in order that we can claim world's records if we make them. The French will not stand for English measure, and most of the English tracks use kilometres in order to make a com ; parison with France, and I don't see " by Americans might not do the same ''thing. It would be quite a help to rae ! ing." ! At the national cycledrome, Ambrose i Park, New York, May 14, the Twentieth Century Trophy will he run for the first time. This trophy, which is valued at SI,000, brings the holder an income of $25 a week as long as he can hold it, ac cording to the terms under which it is offered. .It is expected that the competi tors will include Jaap Eden, 10. C. Bald, Tom Cooper, Arthur Gardner, Earl Kiser, Jean Gougoltz, "Worcester" J. 8. Johnson, Tom Butler, Leon Boulay, An gus McLeod, Jack Bobcrtson and lialpli Temple. I AQUATICS. Yale's crew has rowed unchanged lor the past two weeks, and is now in tha same order in which, as freshmen, it de feated Harvard and Cornell last year. The date of the Cornell-Harvard-Yale race has not vet been agreed upon, and Cornell will not consent to row later than June 24, even if the race lias to be declared off. Americans will have only one opinion ot lhe action of the Henley .Regatta Committee in disqualifying A'oung Ten Eyck, and that opinion will not be flat tering to tbu alleged sportsmanship of the members of the committee. Despite the fact that the time is rapidly approaching when the big tri angular race between the crews of Yale, Harvard and Cornell should he rowed, the date of the race Iiiih not been agreed upon. FOOT BALL, Addison W. Kelly, captain of Prince ton's foot ball team, expects to have a strong eleven this year, and will try to avenge the Yale defeat of last year. George Woodruff has received two black bear cubs from Otto Wagenhurst, and they will be used as Pennsylvania's foot ball mascots. AMONG THE HORSEMEN. It has been stated that tlie Now York Driving Club lias given up the idea of trying to build a new course to replace Fleetwood. James R. Keen's horses are due to ar rive at Morris Park today. I Hamburg will be shipped to Morris Park, and wifi be started in races if he continues in good condition. Prince Arthur, the property of James It. Keen, will be put in training again.

Iraecy has sold the trott-mg stallion Captain \\ albridge, 2,181, to a titled Russian for exportation to Russia, where he will be raced this season, and then go to the stud. Glenheim, winner of the Juvenile Stakes at Morns Park, N. J., on Satnr dny. is considered the best two-year-old i» training in the country, MISCELLANY. There is svndicati lireulation that a f rich men, friends of 1 trover Cleveland, has bought l,00t) acres of Wildwood, not far from Princeton, which will lie surrounded bv liigli ; uhvs of hoard and barbed wire, and ill!.* i w it It game, with the idea of letting them breed and make the place richest hunting grounds of the land, Saturday was a day of record-breaking at the spring games of the colleges 'throughout the country, and several of tlie records made that day will probably stand for a long time, especially that of James H. Maybury, of the University of Wisconsin, where lie ran a 50-yards dash in 5 1-5 seconds. It was said ilmt be did it in five seconds flat, but it was not al lowed, and bis record of 51-5 stands as the world's record. tory in Pat O'Doa, of Wisconsin University, made a drop-kick with a foot ball of 180 feet 11 inches, lowering the American record. Over seven hundred entries have been received for the intercollegiate chain pionships. The Chicago A. A. will be assisted by several Western university athletes in its dual meet with the New York A. C. The annual Sophomore-Freshman sports of the University of Pennsyl will be held at Franklin Field afternoon. Wet grounds caused a post ponement from Saturday. At Yale's track games R. G. Clapp broke the record in pole vaulting, clear ing the bar at 11 feet 6 inches. Jenkins, the Cleveland, wrestler, who was defeated by Yousouf at Cleveland, says there is no doubt that the Turk was guilty of a foul in the second bout. He has as little use of Ismael as a certain getlemen by the name of Roeber. Charley White, manager of (Ieraklides, the Gieek wrestler, says lie is tired of waiting for ifmateli with Yousouf, and, unless the Turk soon comes to time llernklides will meet some one else. vama thin Horn With Tcetli. O 11 Saturday a colored child was horn ut the Homoeopathic Hospital with two teeth fully formed in the front part of the lower jaw. The teeth were extracted by Dr. Horace Betts, as it was known that the child would eventually lose them and that the possibilities were tlmt, it might swallow them.
