SLUGGEDJHE SPHERE. The St. Paul Team Deals Harshly With Mr. Winkle man's Spirals. Omaha Gets One to Ten Runs in Its Game in St. Louis. i The Chicago Maroons Have Their Usual Luck in the Cream City. Detroit Beats Chicago -- A Great Ten-Inning- Game at Boston. . HE feature of yes terday's game be 'tweeii St. Paul and 'Minneapolis was 'Umpire Hagan. It <, is seldom one sees a ■"man of 140 pounds who can control the players on the field, preserve order in the crowd and make a friend of every person save one in the inclosure. but that is just what Hagan did yester- j day afternoon, He was forced to make j many close decis- | ions on both sides, but only the rank- 1, est partisans could | take exceptions to ! his judgment. In the lilth inning, wnen Earle was thrown out at the plate from Walsh to Broughtou, some St. Paul men called Hagan vile names. The game was at once stopped, and Manager Barnes requested to eject the man in five minutes. The request was acted upon at once, amid the heartiest ap plause of the day. The game proper was very one-sided, St. Paul winning handily by heavy batting, the score standing 13 to 4 at the end of the eighth inning, when the rain put a stop to fur ther play. Both teams played unstead ily in the field, only, six of the seven teen runs being earned. In the first inning, after Shafer and Murphy had gone out on flies to right field, Carroll lined the ball over the left-field fence. No more tallies came in until the fourth inning, when Carroll opened with a double, went to third on Broughton's bad throw, and scored on Reilly's hit. Morrissy then swung around, Keilly coming ahead of him, on a long drive into a ditch at center field. In the last half of the same inning Minneapolis came very near tying the score. Kreig put one in a cool place in left field. went to second on a wild pitch, and scored on Shafer's high throw of Brosiian's grounder, the batter going to second, and crossing the plate on McCullom's single. Broughton's pretty double to left sent McCullom in. The former tried to get to third, but was nipped. Carroll came to bat in the fifth after two men were out and got a life on a muffed third strike, took a couple of bases on "Yeach's hit and Walsh's error and scored on a ball which hit the umpire, and was thus blocked. Keilly then sent the sphere whizzing outside the inclosure. In the sixth inning Winkleman suffered se verely, every man in the St. Paul team taking a turn at the bat. Morrissy and Pickett made singles, Sowders a dou ble, Schafer got to first on a fly which dropped between McCullom and Jevne, and Murphy, Carroll and Veach made singles, five men scoring. In the next inning Pickett scored on his double and Sowders' single. In the last half of the eighth Veach went into the box and opened operations by giving Jevne a base on balls and sending him to second on a wild pitch. Pattern's double brought him home. Score: ST.

St. Louis, May 20.— Whites de feated Omaha in their second meeting to-day at Sportsman park in a game abounding in lively hitting and loose fielding, especially on the part of the Whites. Both Nyce and Flynn were off in their work, Nyce especially being wild in the first four innings. After scoring runs off him he settled down and pitched in splendid form the re mainder of the game, but four scatter ing hits being made off his delivery d v ' r ing the five innings. Ilis support was of a very yellow nature, wild throws, fumbled balls and generally bad work characterizing the playing /if Armandie and Crooks especially. The whole team suddenly braced up in the fourth inning and did generally effective work. Flynn just bobbed the balls over the plate and the Whites found but little difficulty in gauging his delivery, Beckley, Crooks and Cantz lighting on to him for long drives yielding two and three bases. The Whites played a hard up-hill game after they had got down to business" and won the game after they had vhtually lost it. Capt. Herr, of :the Whites, was unable to play, owing to sickness, and Crooks attempted to fill the position. He put forth his very best efforts, but he is evidently not a shortstop. The b'st features of the game were a brilliant stop and throw by Dolan in the eighth inning when Omaha had a man on third with two men out. Hines cap tured several difficult flies aud Gus Filed took a foul fly, reaching over in the grand stand to capture it. Score: ST. LOUIS.

Milwaukee, May 26. — Milwaukee and Chicago played the third game to day. Neither Davin nor Pettee were able to play, and their places at center and second were taken by Shenkel and Mills, respectively. Milwaukee had in a new battery, Stevens and Fuller. Sprague and Ingraham were in the points for Chicago. In the first Lowe made a hit. stole second and got home on a wild throw of Ingraham's. In the second inning Long made a beautiful running catch from Lowe's bat and threw to first in time to retire Forster, who had started from there to second. It was as pretty a double play as ever was made on the home grounds. In the fourth. Maskrey knocked out a home run. Chicago's first was made in the fourth. Crogan made a hit, got to second on a wild pitch and scored on Lange's two-bagger. Lange scored in tin* same inning on a two-bagger, a wild pitch and a sacrifice hit. This tied the score. Milwaukee earned another run in the sixth. Chicago tied the score in the same inning. Milwaukee made two in the eighth, which won the game.

Dcs Moines Continues to Lead the "Western Association. The Western association race prom ises to be an unusually pretty one, and it is to be regretted that Yon der Abe thinks of withdrawing or selling the St. Louis Whites, a team which appears amply able to hold its own with any of its competitors. Dcs Moines retains a fair lead, but its percentage has been considerably reduced the past week. Six of the eight teams have won at least half of their games. Kainy weather continues to interfere considerably with the schedule.

That and the Umpire Gave the Champions the Game. Chicago, May 26.— Detroits won an intensely exciting game to-day by hard batting and a gross decision by Umpire Decker. Pettit ran into the crowd in the seventh inning and caught a fly from Bennett's bat. The ball was" returned to second before Twitchell re turned. Decker refused to allow the catch or the double play on the ground that he did not see the catch. The de cision won the irame for the Detroits, as they then batted out four more runs. Both teams baited hard and fielded su perbly, Burns making one of the most magnificent catches imaginable. The attendance was very large, over 8,000. Score: CHICAGO.

May 26.— T0-day's game was a repetition of. yesterday's, except that it required ten innings to decide the contest. For the first nine innings the game wag dull and uninteresting. It was simply a battle of pitchers, and Buffinlon had the best of it all the way through. The tenth inning opened with Clements at the bat.

CHICAGO IN FRONT. The Garden City Colts Insist 'on Remaining Ahead. The Chicago team has demonstrated the past week that it is able to cope with all comers, and there were a number of people who were placing their faith and money on Boston a week ago, who are just now inclined to the belief that the White Stocking aggregation will gather in the laurels this time. However, the season is still very young, and there are several sports about yet who say that Detroit will, make them all hustle when the warm weather comes. Boston went down to Philadel phia a few weeks ago and took four games, and the Quakers are now get ting even with the gilt-edged Hubites on their own grounds. New York is proving something of a disappointment. The team may as well be counted out of the struggle for the penant. The record is given below: Eg£gE7c.£o *f I o 3-* g§* 5* &■» 8 CLUBS.

From his modest position as an "ex periment," looked upon with feelings of great doubt because of poor work in California, young Leon Viau has be come one of the greatest favorites in the team. He shares with Mullane and Smith the liberal plaudits of the en thusiastic who "keep coming" despite the 50-cent tariff. One thing is certain, Viau takes rank as one of the greatest fielding pitchers in the country. He is remarkably agile, backs up everybody and covers first in a manner that makes ."Long John" Ruilly's heart glad, for it gives him the opportunity of chasing grounders and twisters out toward right and into the limits of McPhee's terri tory. The "Dartmouth college boy" is a great drawing card, and there is just as much strength in his name as a draw ing plaster as in any of the others. Rain Interfered. New York, May 26.— The Columbia- Harvard base ball game announced to be played to-day on the Polo grounds was postponed on account of rain. The base ball games between the Louisville and Brooklyn and the Washington and New York clubs were postponed on ac count of rain. Special to the Globe.

The Davenport club has made a record this season unequaled by any other club in the country, shutting outfour'different clubs five times in succession. May 8, Davenport blanked Decatur, in Decatur. 10 to 0; May 10, Bloomington suffered by 4 to 0 in Bloomington; May 12 and 13 Davenport whitewashed Dubuque 5 to 0 and 7 to 0. in Davenport;. May 16 Davenport shut out Rockford, 15 to 0, in Davenport. The Davenports are charged with only one error in these five games. Coughlan, the Lynn pitcher, will probably not come to Minneapolis. He wanted so much advance money that Manager Gooding was afraid the "wonder" couldn't hold out. A typographical error in yesterday's Globe in the report of the St. Paul-Minneapolis game cut Patton out of a hit, and the total of thirteen showed oue was missing. The Minneapolis Stars and the St. Paul Dispatch nine will play a game at the West side park this afternoon. Three tie games have so far been played in the league. Singularly, the New York club figure i in all. McCarthy and McGarr now lead the St Louis Browns in base running. Latham is third. Third Baseman Alcott, late of St. Louis, is likely to sign with Minneapolis.— Life. Possibly St. Paul now regrets the sale of Billy Sowders to Boston.— Sporting Life. It is said Spalding has several offers of §1,000 for the release of Oliver Tebeau. Elmer Foster is said to be worried over his poor batting. He can't account for it. Sowders denies the report that Clarkson instructs him in the art of pitching. Burch, now with the St. Louis Whites," is said to be just as dreamy as ever. Morris, of Pittsburg, made his first base hit for the season last Wednesday. FALSE PRETENSES Said to be Charged Against a Prominent Minneapolis Attor ney. It was repeated last night that a war rant had been issued for the arrest of R. B. Forrest, the attorney who has been the principal witness of the state in the cases brought in Minneapolis against William Tanner, Pat Sullivan, J. B. Flannigan and Frank Shaw, fo keeping gambling houses, charging him with obtaining money under false pre tenses. Up to a late hour, however, he had not been arrested and no particu lars could be learned. During his gambling. operations it is said he gave checks drawn upon banks in which he. had no funds. These were not cashed by the gamblers, but by some ! outside party whom Forrest induced to believe he had money on deposit to; i meet the checks. There is also a rumor that the money Forrest claims to have lost was not his, but belonged to a client. This could not, however, be substantiated. At any rate there seems* to be enough in flying rumors to war- : rant the supposition that some sensa tional developments in connection with' the gambling cases may be expected. j **•**• KANAKAS ARE HOT.

A number of French war vessels are watching the various ports, ready to quell any disturbance, and the arrival there of the French flag shiD Duquesne is awaited, when it is said the admiral will be asked to settle the dispute.

Los Angeles and White Come Under the Wire Even at Latonia, But on the Second Trial the ,v t California Wonder 1 f Wins. Hanover Loses the Brooklyn j ;.,'. c Cup to The i -jf Bard. Steepleehasing at Rockaway —St. Louis Jockey Club ] _.-*•*« "'- Meeting". i Special to the Globe. : New York, May 26.— For the second time The Bard and Hanover met to-day at the Brooklyn track, and again The Bard defeated the crack three-year-old of ISS7, and he beat him in the most de cisive . manner, winning the Brooklyn cup in the commonest kind of a canter by ten lengths. The rain, as usual, de scended in torrents most of the day, and the track was one vast mud puddle, So bad was the slush that after going half a mile the horses could not be dis tinguished. There was a tremendous interest in the race. Hanover, in his work, had showed marked improve ment. On Thursday morning he was tried a mile in 1:42)|. The best work that The Bard did prior to his races was a mile in 1:45, and the Dwvers thought they had a certainty. In the books The Bard was of course the favorite, open ing at 3to 5, while 8 to 5 was offered against Hanover. Stable money and public following, however, forced down i the price against Hanover, and when the horses went to the post it was 7 to 5 against him and 4 to 5. The Bard. Valante was slightly supported for a place at 8 to 5, but Fenelon was friendless at 30 to 1 straight, and 6 to 1 for the place. The race is easily de scribed. The BARD TOOK THE DEAD at the end of the first half, and in the next quarter opened a gap of three lengths, and Hanover and Volante run ning head and head. Along the back stretcn Hanover drew away from Vol ante and nearing the half, attempted to close on the Bard, but Hay ward, antici pating this, got to work with his spurs and the Bard drew further away. Near ing the 3 quarters Hanover again at tempted to move up, but it was without avail and McLaughlin ceased to perse vere. The Bard keeping right on. then drew away and won in a center by ten lengths. McLaughlin PI TLLED UP AT THE POST and let Volante beat him a head for sec ond place, to the intense disgust of all the onlookers. He received a severe talking to from the Dwyers. The race was a fair one, considering the state of the track. The first quarter was run in 26 seconds, the half in 52, othe three-quarters in 1:18>£ the mile in 1:45*., the mile and a quar ter in 2 :12>.^ and the mile and a half in 2:42*4". Hanover is evidently not Han over yet, for he showed no speed in any part of the race, and the going, also, was decidedly against time. Altogether, it was rather hard day for backers. For the opening mile dash Lady Prim rose was a hot favorite, but, although she was leading all the wav, in the last furlong Golden Reel closed on her and beat her out by two lengths, Mollie Mc- Carthy's last being third, four lengths behind. Favor was looked upon as a certainty for the mile and a furlong handicap, but he could do no better than finish second.- Ordway and Dry Monopole made the running lead and led till the last quarter, when Dry Mon opole drew away in the stretch. Favor attempted to close, but the muddy go ing suited Dry Monopole, and he lasted the journey out and won by a length, Favor second, six in front of Brookf nil, who came very strong at the end. For the Gazelle stakes Peg Woffington was regarded as the certainty, but she was never really in the race. Nena and Bella B going head and head, set the pace till into the stretch, when Winona went to the front. In the last furlong Blithsome came very strong, but WINONA. WON CLEVERLY by a half length, with Blithesome sec ond a length and a half before Bella B, who beat Peg Woffington a head. Mc- Laughlin won the two-year-old race handily, with the favorite, Seymour, and followed it up by landing the final welter weight race with Portland quite easily. Brambleton was the favorite for this race, but, though he ran head and head with Portland till into the stretch, he died away at the end from being a trifle short of work, and Britan nic beat him two lengths from the place. First race, for non-winners, one mile- Starters: Fenalon, Sam Harper, Jr., Tenafly, Lackawanna, Lady Primrose, Mollie McCar thy's Last, Theodosius, Regulus, Ella Smith colt, and Golden Reel.

The Closing "Day at Rockaway : - Lacks Excitement. Special to the Globe. "New York, May 26.— closing day of the Rockaway Steeplechase "as sociation was not attended with success in- any sense. The weather was de cidedly unpropitious,rain falling nearly all the afternoon. The attendance was very light, and the sport of an indiffer ent nature. The betting was, of course, very light, but the favorites had the call on the day, four of the six winning. The event of the day was the Queens County hurdle race, "distance two miles and a half. It had only four starters, an*** Bob Mills was a pronounced fasprite, with Westmoreland second choice. The favorite won, but it was only after a hot finish with Westmore land, with whom the jockey waited too long. As to the other races, they did hot develop any special features or ex citement or much interest. The first was for ponies at three-quarters of a mile, which May, a favorite over the field, won easily. The second event was a njile and a quarter selling race on the fiat, and ' brought five to the post, Neptunus and Bric-a-Brac being about equally fancied by the talent. The winner turned up in Diable, a four year-old by Eolus, who was not backed by either his owner or the public. Nep tunus and Bric-a-Brac were second and third. There were only three starters ' in the Hunter's flat race at two miles, but the talent got another upset. Monte Cristo, who was at ~ §25 .. to §20 for the other two, being beaten in hollow style by Chanticleer. After the big event came a steeplechase of three miles. Of the nineteen entries only three came to the post, and Zanzibar, the - favorite, won, the only one of his opponents that j looked dangerous falling half a mile ! from home. The closing event, a two- I • and-a-half mile steeple chase," was won by the favorite, Jake Shipsey, the next choice, Will Davis, second. ;'-;*" THE CALIFORNIA WONDER.
