James H. McAleer of the Cleveland team, and Miss Anna Durbin, will be married next Saturday evening at St. John's Episcopal Church, Cleveland. The Chicago Tribune says of Wagner, Washington's new second baseman, in the second game in ('liicago:—"Wagner's play was remarkable. He get balls everywhere, and really sieved the game himself twice." Manager Selee is quoted as saying in Cincinnati:—"Hughes is a pitcher very much oil the order of 'A 1 Orth of i 111 In-, delpbia.

Manager Bancroft Thursday night said that the club that beats the Bostsns out will win the pennant. "While Haiti more is very strong in spots, Boston has no weakness in any department. Next to the Reds, I consider them the strongest club in America." ... , , a-o hairman rif the Yale • v hv\ n . is Sick wVtl, a fever and Wear, centre fielder, lias been moved to) first, Eddy, lust year's left fielder, will be kept at centre for the present. Fearv, who started out well as a pitcher, is a failure, as last year. In the last two games opposing teams have made 32 runs off him. Fred Hartman's lightning pick-ups and throws are making his enemies 111 the West gape with wonder. The bitter est among them concede that the former St. Louisian is the swiftest of them all. Kid Gleason 1ms demonstrated that he can cover short as well as he cares for the other half nf the middle sentry post. Still, Davis is needed to put in these timely welts of his that send runs around, and it'H a pity lie can't be with the team until its return. There's a growing admiration among the hostiles for Doheny. People who know baseball when they see it are be ginning to appreciate the fact that the Vermont Southpaw is a wonder in the twirling line. 11 is record at the close of the season will tell a brilliant tale. SELF DEFENCE. Barry is the favorite to defeat Leon Monday night at the Lenox club at odds of 100 to 80. There will be one preliminary contest. Kid McCoy is satisfied that ho has a hard task'on his hands when lie meets Choynski fur twenty-five rounds at tho Lenox Athletic Club. oil Johnny Reagan, matchmaker of the Pelican Athletic Club, of South Brook lyn, yesterday matched Joe Hopkins to meet Billy Whistler, of Philadelphia, in a twenty-round bout at his club on Saturday evening. June 4. Ben Jordan, the English leather weight, who sailed from England last Sunday on the Bteamer Lucania, arrived in New York last night. Tin- fight Thursday evening between "Matty" Matthews and "Patsy" Brod erick ended in a diaw, owing to the police taking a hand in affairs. After the bell had Mounded at the close of the fourth round the men still continued to light, punching each other unmercifully, winch continued till the police stopped them. The six-round boxing bout at Wil liainstown between Young Smyrna and Jack McGeever ended in a draw. Smy tried hard to put McGeever to sleep," but failed to do the trick. Jimmy Barry is in New York training for his match with Casper Leon, which takes place at the Lenox A. C. on Mon day night. Kid McCoy left .Yew York with his wife laBt evening for Buffalo and will main away from Yew York for several days. On his return he will go into training for his bout with Joe Choynski, which is to come off in Yew York next month. A Baltimore sporting, man who makes frequent visits to New York city when there is anything doing in pugilism, is trying to break his way in the present boom with the lightweight negro boxer Gans. He wants one of the handsome Lenox club purses for a fight with Haw kins, Erne, Sullivan or Downey. Jack Daly, the lightweight boxer, loves a mix-up, and when boxing a match he does more execution in a rush at close quarters than he does in straight punching. Such rushes are always un certain and dangerous. In the late bout with McPartland, Daly at times rushed his man and had him very nearly going, but was unable to pursue his advantage with effective straight leads. While Daly among the leaders, yet it is doubtful if he can weigh in at 133 pounds at ti o'clock, and stay twenty-five rounds or more in a ! tast, bruising battle with Lavigne, Daly— | at the weight named—has not his rival's strength. With proper care and training Laviene should continue to hold his o^n-New York Sun . ' * ' ' , ..... Another English fighter landed in Yew York yesterday. He is Jimmy Curran, a lightweight, who recently fought Jimmy Hughes at the National Sporting Club, London, forthe championship of England and was defeated Curran came for'the purpose of making a match and called at the Poliee Gazette office, where he left a forfeit and issued a cbal lenge to box anv lightweight in the coun trv Hp is nartu-nhrlv anvinns tn trv conclusions with Spike Sullivan. Cur ran was in Billy Plimmer's corner when the latter fought Sammv Kelly, and was behind Pedlar Palmer when "he fought Dave Sullivan. I ■ I rna re 1 CYCLINGS. Jimmy Mictiael is to go a mile behind electric pacing in Yew York Monday in an effort to lower the present mile record held by Platt Betts, the English of 1 rider. The foreign racing men who did not get their share of prize money at Buffalo last Saturday are still waiting for it.' Nothing can be done toward paying them, however, until the manager of the National Cycledrnme returns from his Canadian trip with part of the team, to sign checks. The Philadelphia friends of Joel ! dUionofW.tle Roman''"' Vernie,' ! will meet Edouard Tavlore in a twenty-; mile paced race at Willow Grove011!

They demanded j I purse of $7(XX) and compared them-1 selves to prize fighters who have received sucb purses. It is needless to say that the representatives of the American As-1 sociation would not yield to tbeir re-j quest. a In speaking of the prospects for todays meet at Woodside Park, Torn Eck stated this morning that outside of the flyers I who have arrived in this city from the I recent big meets, the following men are already in Philadelphia: McFarland, California; Stevens, Iowa; Kimball, Ken tucky; Waltbour, Georgia; Repine, Ten nessee; Weinsett, Georgia; Eaton, New Jersey; McCarthy, Missouri; Monroe, Tennessee; Iten, Switzerland; McEacii ern, Canada; Tompson, Canada. A grand program has been arranged for the opening of the season out at Wil low Grove this afternoon. Besides the 20-mile paced race between Frank Star buck and Edward Tavlore, the cham pion of France, tho half-mile professional race should be one of the most exciting of the many great races held on the lamous board track.
