But it took a hard fight, and at that 'they hardly deserved the game. Tony Mullane was in the box for St. Paul, and he fooled all the Minneapolis heavy hitters, supposed, except Huleri and Jimmy Burns, Kuehne and Fra ser, and with proper fielding support he would have won easily. Minneap olis, on the con'tnary, made up for its failure to bat by a peerless fielding game, and after playing ten innings, with tho score 6 to 6, Kuehne finally ■ stole the game by sending 'the ball into the oat-crop for two 'bases, steal ing third in a manner more daring than strategic, and scoring when Joe "Werrick hit a fly to Lefty M.arr. There were 4,500 people at Minnehaha park to see 'this, the last and best game of the Twin City series, and every one went away feeling that he had received full value for his money. It was one of the old-time see-saw games, where the excitement was kept constantly at fever heat, and rooters had all the fun they wanted. . St. Paul had quite a following pres ent, so. that Che contest in 'the spec tator's gallery was not one-sided. The fun began in the second inning, when Minneapolis .scored the first run. Burns hit safely, and vven't to second when li-win fumbled Lally's grounder. Kuehne's hit scored Burns. St. Paul tied the score in the third, earning the run, too. Smith and O'Rourke both hit safely, and then they worked the ; double steal. Camp struck out, but Ma it hit a long fly to Burns, and Smith came in before the ball did. Happy in their, triumph, the Com - iskey team went to pieces immediate ly, and the Millers scored three runs. O'Rourke let Kuehne get to first with out a license, and Werrick 'took the • same base by courtesy of Tony Mul lane. Wilson struck out, but Fraser hit safely. Hulen did the same and Kuehne scored. Strauss forced Hulen out at second, but Werrick and Fraser scored and Strauss wont to second. St. Paul went in to take up the lost stitch, Pickett opening with a two bagger. Van Dyke singled, EARNING ANOTHER RUN, . and afterwards stole second. Two went out then, but Smith and O'Rourke again hit the ball and Van scored. It tvas four to three. Minneapolis didn't get any next time, and the visitors proceeded to take the lead. Marr hit safely and stole second, j [rwin went to first on balls and Pickett sacrificed. Van Dyke struck out, but Berger hit for two bases, and there were two runs. That made it 5 to 4, with St. Paul up. Fraser bunted and beat the ball out, and Hulen did as well. Be-ger threw the ball wild and Hulen went to second, while Praser went to third. Strauss hit a fly to Smith, and Fraser scored. Werden went out on a foul By, but Burns hit for two bases and scored Hulen, which put the locals again in the lead, six to five. This lead was kept until the last .half of the seventh, when lrv.'in hit a hard one to Fraser, which struck his foot, and went out of Werrick's reach. The Chicago man went ',to second. Pickett hit a. grounder to Kuehne and Irwin reached third. Van Dyke hit safely, and the score was a tie. Then for two innings neither side scored. St. Paul had a narrow escape, '.however, • Fraser giving Smith a base on balls. O'Rourke bunted safely, and Camp hit a grounder to Kuehne, who covered the base. Smith deliberately ran into him and knocked him down, and a fight seemed imminent, when Sheridan cut into the game and ordered Smith. to the bench. The first double play of the game . retired the side on Marr's grounder to Werrick. Minneapolis got two men on bases in the ninth, but a fly laid them off. A grounder to, Wer rick and two long flies to Burns left the score, still a tie at the end of the ninth. Burns was the only Miller to get to a base in- the tenth, and St. Paul again had a chance. Berger hit a liner to Hulen, and Tony hit safely. Smith hit a hot grounder to Hulen, who ate it up, ran across second base and ' threw the ball to Werden with a rush. The eleventh inning was then demand ed, and Kuehne made his play, as pre viously stated. St. Paul ■ sent up O'Rourke, Camp and Marr in turn, and all went out on grounders to the in field. So the Minneapolis contingent went home happy. The score: ~3llnne'ap : Us." AJ37~RriB.~P;o7ATK Hulen, 55. ........ 5 12 6 2 0 Straus, rf 0 0 0 2 0 0 Werden, 1b:.

Bird, the St. Paul racing man, who will be a competitor in the Chicago road race, is the .subject of a good deal of com ment just at present among the local wheelmen on account of the fact that he has announced his intention of rid ing a machine geared to' 102 inches. Bird is a fast' man, but it : is ques tionable is, should the weather con ditions be similar to last Decoration day, the St. Paul man can last the distance of the course.. A racing man prominently mentioned for one of the time prizes remarked yesterday: "If the wind is from the. north, a-nd it is at all stiff. Bird will not travel more than half of the course in a northerly direction before he drops out— is, if he insists upon riding a machine geared to 102 inches. With the wind out of the north the race is practically ended by the time Svanston is reached. First of all, Bird will have a strong head wind to contend against; next, he will have a stiff pace set for him; thirdly, he will have' to dis mount when he comes to the sand stretches, and his high gear will be of very little assistance to him except when he is making the return journey, and then his strength ' v«,'l be .so far gone that his gear will be of small use to him. It is folly for a man to ride in a road race with a gear so high unless he is endowed with gigantic strength. 1., know Bird is a strong rider, but an 80-inch gear would suit him better than a gear 102 inches. The strongest of road racing men celdom use a gear higher than : seventy-two inches." " 7 x;v ■'• : Lowered the 25-Mile Record.

ENGLISH COtiflSES SOME OF THE PECULIARITIES OF THE TRACKS AT SEWMArtKET-, AND EPSOM DOWNS! -' ' ■ HEAVY CHARGES TO OWNERS j -r 1 I RICHARD CROKER HAS FOUND; THAT RACING COMES HIGH ON THE OTHER SIDE* I WHERE DERBY WILL BE RUJfi There In No Strong? 'Favorite Thljj . Year— Raconteur Sow the Lead* er at Four to One. Special Correspondence of the Globe. NEW YORK, May 18.— The success^ of the venture of Richard Croker and' Mike Dwyer in sending their race horses to England to try for the rich prizes hung up by the English Jockey club will probably lead many other American horsemen to send their stables abroad next spring. Rac ing in this country, particularly in the East, has lost its attractive feat ures since the passage of the rigorous anti-gambling laws in New Jersey and New York, which practically close the finest tracks in the world. Few of the American horsemen know anything of the big English courses. They differ in many ways from the American tracks, and it would be wise for any ambitious own- ; er who thinks of trying his horses against their British rivals to study up the question carefully and line his pockets abundantly with gold to meet ( the numerous charges flung at him. Richard Croker is not a poor man i by any means, but in a letter to a New York friend he said the strain on his pocketbook of maintaining a TO NEWMARKET liV OLD DAYS. stable In England is something ter rific. He gave some very 'interesting Items of the expenses at the Newmar : ket track, where his horses won their first races. The Newmarket track is about forty-six miles from London and" three miles on the Cambridge road from the town whose name it bears. There are training grounds apart from the track proper, which is only useu for the actual racing. These training grounds are very fine, being fi'tte<* with a walking ring and a 'taribark galloping track, besides a speeding course. Every horse using the grounds must pay an annual tax of seven gui neas, and every yearling three gui neas. Unlike 'the American tracks, stabling and quarters for the train ers, jockeys, stable boys, etc., must be paid for and at a 'high price. MANY PETTY CHARGES. Mr. Croker has to pay five shillings for each registration of a horse, and a sovereign to permit Jockey Simm.s to ride, and ten shillings for each of the stable boys. His colors had to be registered at a- cost of five shillings, and. every time an entry is made tho clerk must be paid two shillings and sixpence. When the jockey weighs in for a race he must pay the same fee. There are a score more of like charges, and it is safe to say that if Father Bill Daly went abroad with his string he would die at once over the cost of the sport. TWENTY-NINE COURSES. There are twenty-nine different courses on the Newmarket track, rang ing in distance all the way from the SETTLING FOR THE DERBY. From a drawing by Cruikshank, 1840. Beacon course of four miles one fur long and 177 yards to the Chesterfield course of five furlongs. From this it can be seen that there are compara tively few sprint races, and that the majority of them try the staying pow ers of the competing thoroughbreds. The accompanying chart shows the plan of the Newmarket track and also the main courses. Each of these courses is subdivided into a number of smaller courses. • TIME NO CRITERION. It is a difficult matter to get a line on a horse on the English course by using time as a criterion. For in stance, one of the stake races at New market is called the Ancaster mile. In reality It is twenty-two yards more than the mile, and even the Rowley mile, another stake event, Is eleven yard* over the mile. The Abingdon mile and the Bunbury mile, two stake events, are each even miles. There are eight meetings held at Newmarket each year, some of them THE NEWMARKET COURSE. only a few days in duration. Another thing which American horsemen will be astonished at in the English races is the hard handling- given the, two year-olds. In this country it is a rare thing to send the youngsters more than six furlongs until well along In the fall, when they are almost as good as three-year-olds. Then they may be asked to go a mile. One of the big stake events to be run at Newmarket in the fall is the Feath er Plate, over a course of twc and a quarter miles. One would think only the toughest kind of a seasoned cam paigner would be sent this distance, but all the crack English two-year olds are entered for the stake, and its history shows that a youngster has won oftener than an older horse. Last year the winner was a two-year-old, and the next four horses to cross the wire were all two-year-olds. In the ! matter of distance and stamina it is j pretty certain the English two-year old far outclasses his American broth ' ef, but it is a question whether the I hard usage does not tell aganst him 1 in his three and four-year-old forms. WHERE DERBY IS RUN. j On May 29 next the English Derby will be run on Epsom Downs, the most historic race and the most historic race track in all lands and climes. It will be the 116 th race for the stake, tho first one being run in 1780. In those days it attracted no attention what ever. In fact, when the first Derby was run, as an extra Inducement to the public to come and witness it, the programme included a cock fight be tween the gentlemen of Middlesex and Surrey and the gentlemen of Wilt shire. Neither was there any red tape about the conditions of the race in those days. The conditions of the first Derby were simply as follows: "Derby stakes of 50 guineas each; half-forfeit; for three-year-olds; colta 8 stone and fillies 7 stone 11 lbs. One mile." It is Interesting to note that the handicappers of American horses to day rate the colt three pounds above the filly, just as Edward, twelfth Earl of Derby, founder of the race, and his . contemporaries did more than a hun dred years ago. FIRST DERBY WINNER. Diomed, owned by Sir Charles Bun bury, a chestnut horse, by Florlzel, out of Sister to Juno, was the first winner of the Derby, and Lord Rose bery's Ladas captured the great prize last year. It is a matter of regret that none of the American horses now in England are eligible for the great race, as the entries closed long before Mr. Croker and Mr. Dwyer thought of going abroad. It is not improbable, if the great two-year-old Montauk de velops as Mr. Croker hopes, that he will be entered for the Derby of. '96 if the conditions allow. GREAT GRAND STAND. There are prettier courses ia this MAY 20. 1895. country than the famous one of Ep som Downs, but none possessing the historic associations of the old track. One of its peculiarities is its great grand stand, towering high up in the air like the spire of some huge cathe dral. This grand stand is not as sight ly or aa comfortable or luxurious as the similar affairs on the modern tracks here, as it was built solely for the accommodation of tens of thou sands of people, and absolutely no at tention was paid to architectural beauty. Some idea of the dimensions of the structure can be gained from the fact that when orders were given to re paint it a few weeks ago more than 100 tons of white paint were ordered for the purpose. THE GIANT'S GRILI* One of the odd features of the stand is its interior. Two weeks before the great day a whole army of cooks are put to work preparing the foods that will be consumed on Derby day. The kitchen they work in is unique, par ticularly the giant's grill. This enor mous fireplace Is several yards wide and as deep as an ordinary sized room, and when the inflammable con tents are burning it looks like a great conflagration. Considerable ingenuity has been exercised In the utility of this fireplace. Near the top are long bars on which great legra of mutton are roasted, and beneath the mutton are long bars hung with roasting chickens so contrived that the dripping from the mutton "bastes" the chickens, who in turn serve some useful purpose In regard to dishes beneath. Ther,e is nothing sensational up to date about the coming Derby. Last year the English People stood to a man on the success of Ladas, and the victory of the colt was the most popular in the long history of the stake. This year there is no strong favorite. Raconteur is a weak favorite at 4 tp 1, Sir Vlsto and Speed well divide second choice honors at 13 to 2, Levar and Laveno are at 10 to 1, and Solaro is the outsider at 20 to 1. There will be other stakes than the Derby at Epsom that the Croker- Dwyer horses can try for, and also at Ascot and Newcastle, where great meetings are held. the: blind iulliardist. Julius Stern l'lnyn by Sound Wltlt the Skill of an Expert. Julius Stern, a New York newsdeal er, has bean blind for fourteen years, but despite hi 3 infirmity plays billiards with rare skill. He kept a billiard room several years ago and began to play by sound. He soon became mar velously expert and could perform some of the most difficult shots. Despite Stern's fame as a remark able player, his place did not pay, and he finally gave it up and went into the news business. Every morning and evening he serves a long route, and no one who saw him leaving each newspaper exactly at its proper place in the letter boxes, hall* and cellars of the big apartment houses would imag ine for a moment that he was blind, so certain and quick are his movements. His chief fame, however, says the Herald, has come to him as a billiard player. His sense of hearing is phe nomenal. By the graduation of the sound Of clicking balls he can accu rately judge their distance. His sense of touch is delicate, and by simply lo cating the object balls he can send the cue ball true. To illustrate her hus band's wonderful acuteness of hear ing, Mrs. Stern says that one day she was in the- kitchen, which is fre quently filled with the din of the elevat ed road, when her husband came In. He kissed her, and then turning around said cheerily, "And who is this youngster?" The son of a neighbor was sitting In the spot indicated, but the boy had not moved or uttered a sound. "How do you any one is there?" asked his wife. "I heard him breathing," answered Julius. He has three children— Joe. who Is ten years old; Augusta, eight, and Harry, who is four. They are as pretty youngsters as you will find anywhere JULIUS STEHX. on the West side. Their father has never seen their faces. Stern has had several offers to exhibit his skill with the cue, under the direction of show men, but has never once entertained the idea. He is quite ,an expert ac countant, and his books, kept accord ing to the blind methods, are models of neatness and accuracy. > Routed the lluvum.
