A more lively ball might help tire bat ting somewhat next season. Tom O'Brien may play an infield posi tion for Pittsburg next season. Every Cincinnati pitcher but Hill won more games than he lost this year. Jud Smith has returned to his home in South Dakota for a winter's hunt. "Bid" McPhee will start for Arkan sas next week on, an extended hunting trip. Tom Burns denies that Bill Lange will be sold or exchanged during the winter. Baltimore is reported as having drafted pitcher Chauncey Fisher, of St. Joseph. Bobby Lowe, of the Boston Club, owns and conducts a fine hotel at Beaver Falls, Pa. The past season demonstrated that Mc Graw is yet one of the best men in the game. Haydon, Baltimore's young catcher, is mixing drinks at the St. Elmo Hotel, Beading, Pa. Arlie Latham is putting in the winter as goal-tender for the Springfield polo team. Outfielder Selbach is managing a bowl ing alley at fiOl South Front street, Columbus, 0. George Harper is back home on the Pacific elope, and is pitching for the Stockton team. The Reading Club has signed pitcher Grant Thatcher, formerly of Lancaster and Brockton.

The annual meeting of the Pittsburg Base Ball Club will take place in Jersey City on November 9. George Decker will run no sprint races this winter. He will give that leg of his the rest it needs. Owner Brown, of the Utica Club, has, it is reported, signed Howard Earl as manager for next season. St. Louis lias had and parted with enough first-class material to have equip ped a championship club. Bill Everitt will go to California soon to act as betting commissioner for his cousin, Jockey Jesse Everitt. Milwaukee wants to buy pitcher Har ley Parker, but Manning is looking for good trade for the doctor. It is a singular fact that tiie majority of players on the Brooklyn team live in the New England States. It is quite evident that Mr. Freedman lias no notion of retiring from the con trol of the New York Club. SELF DEFENCE. How about lloffecker these days? There ought to be a good athletic club in the town. Recall the old Warren in the hey day of its success. Is Midget Glynn a dead one now? He ought to line up. What a great joint Gordon Heights would be for a boxing club? There are enough sports in town to support any good game, but they need cement. Considering the crowds that attend the boxing shows in Philadelphia every week Wilmington ought to support a good game. Some of the talent think that Jack Daly has gone stale. All wrong, lie has never been in better condition. Frank Fisher writes that lie will call at this office to cover Jack Farrel's money to bind a fight with him. The Monarch Club of Louisville wants to match Jack Daly and Franhy. These lads fought twice in this city, and after a hard contest Daly caine off with first honors. How many people in the town will support a rattling good boxing club run on the level? Write to The Sun about it. With proper assurances the men and the money are at hand. What do you wise ones think of the proposition? Jimmy Rose, of New York, and Harry Forbes, of Chicago, are to meet in a twenty-five round bout at the Green wood A. C., Brooklyn, to-night, and should put up a clever and interesting bout. Jimmy Barry has promised to take on Rose if he defeats Forbes. Dick O'Brien wants to get on a match witli any of those who claim to be mid dle-weights. Murphey O'Brien has become instilled witli confidence to cope successfully witli the best of those at his weight, hence his desire to meet Kid McCoy, Bonner, Ryan or Gorman at 180 pounds. Tom Broderick, the Yonker boxer, who made a good impression in his re cent fight with Eddie Connolly, but who lost the decision through the carelessness of his seconds, who allowed ammonia to get in his eye, has been matched to meet Jem Curran, the Englishman, in a twenty-round bout at the Pelican Ath letic Club November 12. They will meet at 135 pounds for a percentage of the gate receipts. Joe Cans, the colored lightweight of Baltimore, gained the decision over "Kid" McPartland in their twenty-five round contest at the Lenox Athletic Club, New York, last night. McPartland was the favorite in the betting at the odds of 100 to 80. The McPartland people objected to Referee Charley White, but it carried no weight with the management. White being the club's regular referee. Paddy Sullivan, who looks after the in terests of Oscar Gardner, the "Omaha Since defeating Dan Kid," in the event of Gardner besting George Dixon and not hearing any more from England regarding a match with Pedlar Palmer, will give Joe Bernstein, the East Side boxer, the first crack at Gardner. These two boys should draw a big house, for the reason that a match between them lias been talked of for the . past two years. Manager Horan says he is willing to risk a few hundred dollar i bills on Joe's chances against the "Kid." the CYCLING. i The Bradford is winning friends. i The Wilmington Bicycle Club needs new blood.

Unfortunately, to secure the required pace Eaton has to rely on a clear Sunday, that being the only day suitable to all. Wind and weather permitting, another attempt will be made to-day week. Harrv Park, of the Century Cycle Club of Washington, has broken 'the New York-Washington bicycle record, both paced and unpaced, by 1 hour and 52 minutes. Park left the City Hall, New York, Thursday morning at 6.50 o'clock, and covered the distance, 243 miles, unpaced, in 25 hours 45 minutes. The previous record of 27 hours 37 min utes was established last year by Lieut. H. D. Wise, U. S. A., who was accompa nied by pacemakers. FOOT BALL. Warren, 17; U. of P. Medicals, 0.

Colonel Barney McVey is on his way home. Br'er Rabbit and Miss Quail will please take notice. Colonel A. L. Ainscow will hereafter charge 50 cents a lie in addition to the regular price of the birds sold to returned gunners. Colonel Dockstader lias just returned from a successful gunning trip and his many friends who were kindly remem bered by him wish him "many of them." Charles C. Humer, William Erb and R. T. Power, well-known gunners and prominent members of Philadelphia gun clubs, have just returned from a hunting trip through Carbon county, Pa. Two days were spent hunting there and, al though a trifle early, tiie trio succeeded in bringing home seventeen pheasants and five rabbits. All three hunters ex press tiie highest praise for the treat ment received at tiie hands of Mr. John Houseman, who keeps the Weisport House. POOL AND BILLIARDS. Why can't we have a local pool tour nament. The Sun will hang up $10 to ward a right purse for the winner. Who will give another $ 10 ? Room keepers and manufacturers should ever go hand in hand in aiding, promoting and creating match games and tournaments between tiie billiard experts of this country, which would practically make the three classes of pro fessionals work constantly in harmony with eacli other. We do not mean by this tl.at there is not a serious or grave responsibility for experts. Their mission is largely to play such tournaments and contests. But this alone is not nor should not be their only duty. Every self-re specting professional master of the game should either be a room keeper, pure and simple, or tiie manager of a room owned by someone else. No professional expert can hope to live by the mere playing of billiards alone, unless he is a gambler at the same time, or depends on someone else for a living. To be tiie one is quite as bad as to be the other.— Spurt ing Life. BOULEVARD BURGLARS. A Number of Residences Entered In That Vicinitv and Money Sto'en. For the past three weeks the people residing on the Boulevard, above Twen tieth street, have been robbed. The bouse of Charles Taylor, No. 2005 Boulevard, lias been entered twice, and, from evidences secured, one of the bur lars is a woman. On the first occasion $13 in money wascanied off and the second time a smaller amount was secured. It is be lieved that the same people entered the house both times, as they stole nothing but money, so far as could be ascer tained, although, as they were inside, they had ample opportunity to carry away other articles of value. Each time tiie occupants of the house were asleep and the theft was not discovered until tiie following morning. The residence of Benjamin F. Shaw, No. 2101 Boulevard, was also visited at about the same time, an entrance being gained through the cellar, but as the doors leading therefrom were securely fastened it was impossible to get to tho upper part of the house. The burglars were evidently disgusted and left the house without carrying off anything 'of value. Recently an effort was made to effect an entrance into the residence of E. T. Hardosty, No 2001 Boulevard. Portions of shutters were cut away, but the mis creants were evidently frightened off be fore they had an opnortpnity to get in side. of & at a HEX WINS QUITE EASILY The Medicals From Old Penn Outplayed at Every Point of the Game. PRENTISS GAINS NEW LAURELS A Score of 17 to O Tells the Story of the Local Contest at Front and Union Streets—A Great Crowd Saw the Game. a 17—Warren. <2—U. of P. Medicals. That's the score of a weil-fought game at Front and Union streets yesterday. The crowd was large and enthusiastic. There was a hand and a yell on tap ail the while for the visitors, but they did little to bring out this spirit of good fel lowship. It was a Warren crowd, of course, but the "fair field and no favor" idea was there. A small crowd of rooters attended the lied and Blue team and the familiar yell of old Penn went up more than once with a hearty good will. The Medicals tried but few star plays but there was never a moment in the game that they were not working con sistently and courageously to land one of Woodruff's team plays. The dogged persistence of Warren along the old lines—the plays to win and the plays to score, finally triumphed and the score tells the story—17, Warren; 0 —Pennsylvania. Warren played fast throughout. Baily plunged and plunged again and again— each time for a gain. The opposing line could not stand the pace and with tho superb kicking of Prentiss the outcome was never in doubt. Prentiss and Smith made feature runs of the game—Prentiss one for thirty yards, Smith one for twenty-six yards. Sichel, Wnnder and Dorrance easily carried off the honors for the visitors. The score:— U. of P. MEDICALS. Dengler.. Schrack . Scheyney Lessig.... Bishop .. Dorrance, Fegley... Gay. Brosius... Sichel.... Wunder . Umpire — Shields. Linesmen—Joslyn and Bacon. Timer—Taylor.

Y., tiie contractor for removing rock in the Christiana river, lias bonded in the sum of $5,000, the Fidelity Trust and Deposit Company, of Maryland, being on the bond which has been approved by the Government. He is preparing to bring his plant here, and will probably begin operations near the works of tiie McCullough Iron Com pany next week, the contract requiring him to begin before November 20th. He is to finish the work by July let, 1899. The bond of the New York Dredging Company, contractors for dredging, has been sent to Washington, No B ill for Marsh. Gideon W. Marsh, the fugitive presi dent of the Keystono National Bank, spent last, night in jail in Philadelphia with but little prospect of his gaining his release to-morrow, though his counsel assuringly says the required $ 20,000 bail lias been secured. Despite tiie confidence expressed by E. Cooper Shapley, at torney for Marsh, that there would be no difficulty in securing qualified bonds men, there is considerable doubt that this is so in the minds of many inter ested in the case. Warrants for Gunners. Warrants have been sworn out against James Melvin, J. Theodore Hastings, H. Clay I >avis, James J. Calloway, Ro land R. Collins and George Hastings by N. H. Hutchens, agent of the Delaware Game Protective Association at Laurel. They are charged witli shooting par tridges and rabbits before tiie opening of the season, November 15. The hearings are to be held in Laurel to-morrow* morning. No Interest Manifested, Georgetown, Del., Nov. 5 .—Little in terest was manifested at the Democratic mass-meeting at Milton last night. The citizens seemed to be more inter ested in the parade and brass band than they were in the words of the speakers. Tiie meeting was addressed by Hon. L. Irving Handy, Hon. Robert C. White, Judge David T. Marvil and A. F. Polk. Caught in New York. Captain of Police McClusky, of New York yesterday morning notified Chief of Police Dolan that Alexander Jalow ar-y, had been arrested there on the charge of embezzlement, a warrant hav ing been sworn out in this city by Sam uel Slesinger and sent over by Chief Dolan. Detective Witsil will bj sent after the prisoner. A Bicycle Invention. The front chain wheel of a new bicycle driving mechanism is provided with in ternal teeth, which engage a toothed wheel meshing with a smaller wheel fix ed on tiie crank shaft, the outer wheel being disengaged from the crank in climbing hills, to allow power to be transmitted through tho internal wheels to the inside of the rim. Shipyard Changes. On account of the changes in the sev eral ways being built in several sections of tiie yard of tiie Harlan & Hollings worth Company, the tracks are being altered.
