KNELL WAS A CONUNDRUM.
Apostles Fall by tbe Wayside in
Special to the Globe.
St. Joseph, Aug. 9.— Knell was in
form to-day, and the Apostles couldn't
get their eye on what he put over the
plate. The two visitors who scored eot
first on balls and to second on a wild
pitch or passed ball, and home on one
single. Tuckerman pitched some ball
himself, and was given some blue rib
bon support. He was also given some
yellow ribbon support, and that's wry j
St. doe got enough runs to win two |
games and a half. The fielding of Daly
in left was good. One of his catches
was a one-hander that retired the
side, and brought 3,000 people to
their feet to cheer again and
again. Carroll was out of gear and
Miller was awful. The
BUPPOBT GIVEN KXELL WAS SUPERB,
he making St. Joseph's only error. St.
Joseph scored in the fourth on Miller's
error of Ardner's grounder, singles by
Cartwright and Hotaling and a long
drawn-out double play, which retired
Hotaling and Burks on the latler's
grounder. Three runs were made in
the third on Carroll's muff of McUarr's
short fly. Farmer's wild throw of Curtis'
bunt, Kreig's double, Ardner's sacrifice
ami Riley's wild throw of Cartwright's
grounder. Three more runs were made
in the ninth on Knell's single, rrick's

was put out just as he reached the plate.

SUNDAY FOOLS SENATORS.
His Magnificent Work Kresulted
in Their Defeat.
Prrrsßrr.Cr, Aug. 9.— During the
earlier portion of the game it appeared
as if the hitting induJged in by the
Wasbingtons, aud Ferson's effective
ness, would result in an easy victory
for the Senators, but Sunday's mag
nificent base running seemed to frighten
them to such an extent that they coupled
enough errors with three hits in the
fifth inning to give the home team six
unearned runs, alter which Ferson let
up visibly. Sullivan relieved him in
the seventli and did good work. Sun
day's great work all around and Miller's
home run were the features of the

A List of the Contestants,
With the Records They
Tbe gentle tennis player captured
Lake Minnetonka yesterday ; that is.that
part of Lake Minnetonka which is rep
resented by Hotel St. Louis. For the
past week they have been coming slow
ly, but yesterday they descended upon
Northome, and they and their friends
crowded Hotel St. Louis. Everywhere
there were vivid blazers, pretty girls,
racquets and white trousers. There is
the mealy individual who arrays him
self in a particularly killing outfit, but
who doesn't play at all, and there is
the man who rolls up his trousers and
sleeves and goes in to win. There is
not much whiteness about him when
he has finished a hard contest. The
tournament opened yesterday morn
ing, and it was a brilliant suc
cess. There is a larger number of
players than was expected, and the ex
cellence of the game is far above what
was anticipated. The opening day was
far more interesting than the first day
of the Western Lawn Tennis associa
tion tournament, which was held at
Minnetonka Beach last year. There
are in all in the neighborhood of forty
players upon the grounds, and among
them are half a dozen cracks. There is
T. N. Jayne, who held the champion
ship of Michigan while he was at col
lege at Ann Arbor, and who now lives
in Minneapolis. George Rublee, who
has held the
CHAMPIONSHIP OF WISCONSIN
for two years, and who is looked upon
as oue of the best players at Harvard, is
in the contests. E. R. D. Applegarth,
one of the strongest players in Winni
peg, is another contestant. Geonre H.
Belden, of Minneapolis, who is consid
ered the best in the city, is a remark
ably good player, and is looked upon as
the probable winner. From the very
start the games were of more than usual
interest. The first one was between
Fackenham and Jayne, of Minneapolis,
and it is seldom that 8 > pretty a contest
and such finished playing is seen. The
first set Packenham was unable to get
down to work. His serves^lidn't count,
and Jayne's phenomeual skill in plac
ing the balls completely floored him.
In the whole set Packenham got but two
points. But in the second the slender,
red-cheeked Englishman got down and
played a game that kept the spectators
applauding constantly. He is an adept
at the "Lowford stroke," and some of
his returns were phenomenal. His
service is tremendously swift, and he
nearly always gets it in. Jayne, too,
played a great game. His judgment is
wonderful. He doesn't serve swiftly,
but depends upon his returns. The ac
curacy with which he places a ball is
equaled by few flayers. But the col
lege man was outplayed in the second
set, and Packenham won, 6-4. But in
the third set he began to play, and his
skill and steadiness were too
much for Packenhsira's brilliant play,
so he won, G-3. Scarcely less interest
ing was the game between Belden and
Applegarth. although it was not so close.
Neither played in their best form, yet
both put up
A BEMARKABLE GAME.
Applegarth plays very easily, yet he
plays very hard. It is a beautifnl
game. He, too, uses the Lowford
stroke, and very successfully, and he
covers a vast deal of ground. Belden
plays a game peculiar to himself. He
uses his forearm almost altogether
with a. backward stroke. He is very
successful. He strikes the ball with a
quick, jerky movement. Belden cap
tured the first set, the score being 6 to 3.
Then Applegarth began to play, and
there was a mighty struggle. Belden
finally winning the set by a single
point, the scoring being 6to 5. The
spectators had an opportunity to see
George Rublee's game in his contest
with Hillary Murray. He plays very
fast and very hard. The balls shoot
just over the net, when he returns, as if
they came from a cannon. He is a big
fellow— six feet four inches— and it is
almost impossible to get a ball by him.
His greatest trouble is that he knocks
the balls out of the court. He very sel
dom drives them into the net. He de
feated Murray handily, the score being
6-4,6-2. Among the other players who
distinguished themselves in the singles
were T. McCurdy, who holds the cham
pionship at Macalester college; W. W.
Wallace and E. N. Beat. The last
named plays the prettiest game of all.
One of the prettiest conies s of the day
was between Robinson, of Minneapolis,
and McClurg, of St. Paul. They are
evenly matched and both played beauti
fully." Nearly every game was
A DEUCE GAME.
All of the preliminary singles except
three were finished yesterday.
Late in the afternoon the second
round of doubles was entered upon, but
the contests were not very interesting.
The players were not nearly so evenly
matched as they were in the prelimin
aries. There was beautiful playing
displayed in the doubles. From the in
dications yesterday the finals will be
between Packenham and Belden and
Jayne, and Best. The pairs have played
together and they understand how to
work to the best advantage. But it is
not certain but that Robinson and Ap
plegarth will be in the finals. Had they
played together any it is pretty sure
thatthey would be. The most interest
ing double contest of the day was be
tween Murray and Best, of Minneapo
lis, and George and W. A. Rublee, of
Milwaukee. The heavy- "smash"' game
of the latter pair won the sets for them.

It is expected that the final will be
reached this afternoon, and they will
be great contests. The winner of the
final single will be played by W. S. V.
Thorne, of St. Paul, the champion of
the state, and the winners of the final
double by Thorue and Wall. To-night
the lawn tennis ball will take place at
Hotel St. Louis aud it will be one of the
affairs of the season.
The choir boys of St. Paul are at
Hotel Lafayette, and they gave a mag
nificent concert last night. There are
150 of them.
The Minnetonka Yacht club hold* a
regetta to-day, and it will be one of un
usual interest. If the Yaruna wins it
gives here the championship, but it is
without danger of meeting disagreeable or contaminating influences.
Tickets will be sold in advance to prevent any inconvenience at the
gates. No jostling or crowding, and the largest body of people ever seen
together in the state. Fire companies, brass bands or bicycle clubs par
ticipating in this Tournament will be supplied with tickets, and will
receive 25 per cent of what they sell, thus giving to participants one
quarter of the gross receipts, the only time tlii* maarnificeut offer was
ever made in the whole history of tournaments. Those who are inter
ested in the valiant deeds of our volunteer firemen, who, without pay or
reward, risk life, limb aim health for the preservation of life and prop
erty of others, cannot fail to be present, while those who love music, or
the graceful evolutions of a bicyclist will certainly strain every point to
witness this, the first and only tournament of this nature ever held in
the state of Minnesota. For further information and details address
L. H. TURNER,
not absolutely certain that she will win.
If there is a good wind it will be one of/
the ereat races of the season. The st irk
will be made at 3p. m. from in front o£i
Hotel St. Louis.
