MILWAUKEE. "Wis., Aug. 20.—
The Brewers took a turn at making
finis today and won as pretty a
ten-inning game from the Apostles
as any one could ask to 1 »ok at. They
had the narrowest kind of an escape
from defeat in the ninth, for St. Paul
had a man on third and another on
second, with no one out. So cer
tain did it look that St. Paul would
win the game then and there that
half of the- spectators got up and
prepared to go home with long faces
and a still poorer opinion of the
Brewers/out fortune looked down and
laughed. It .... have laughed, for
a smile would never have pulled the
Brewers out. Pickett popped up a
fly to Taylor and Boyle drove a line
hit at Taylor, which got Burns
doubled at third. Then the specta
tors got excited and sat down. Staf
ford was the first man at bat in the
■tenth, and he drove the ball to deep
left field for two bases. if there had
"been no wind blowing the ball would
have surely gone over the nee.
Taylor hit a grounder to O'Rourke.
and the latter threw to second to
catch Stafford, who had a big lead,
but Stafford got back before he was
touched. The 'fact that Cushman
didn't call Stafford out so enraged
Pickett that he pushed Cushman all
over the infield and heaped all sorts
of abuse on him. Johnston also
called Cushman everything that he
could lay his tongue to. Both were
put out of the game. Mullane went
in to pitch, and the second ball he
in l .he
-threw he made a w;ld pitch, and
Stafford went to third and Taylor to
second. Stephens hit to right field
for a base, and in came Stafford and
Taylor. Nicol's ground ball got
nd ball
Stephens out at second and Klopf
flew out to Irwin. In the last half
of the tenth St. Paul went out in
order on -tips. The score:

l tee a line on them, but also for the
cup that John Jacob Astor offered
; to the winner of the majority of the
; races that the committee should or-
der. The winner of the cup, how-
ever, will not necessarily be the
defender of the America's cup. One
boat might beat the other three
times straight, and yet the America's
cup committee will have absolute
power and discretion in picking the
! defender. The committee might de-
I cide from their observations during
j the cruise of the New York Yacht
! club to the eastward, and ignore
: these trial races altogether if they
so choose to do. It is believed
I among yachtsmen that the commit
j tee ordered these trial races more
I in the hope that they would see De
j fender in a good stiff breeze, if not a
1 hard wind, a condition of things in
] which she has not yet had the op-
portunity of displaying her power.
j They came very near having the de
■ sired view today. But they were
i forestalled by an accident that pre
i vented Defender from really show
! ing what she could do in a breeze
; of wind that went over the water
j probably at the rate of twenty knots
jan hour. In fact it was the very
stiffness of the breeze that brought
■ dire injury to the fin-keeled boat.
i The breeze stirred up her rigging so
': much, and played such havoc among
I it. that it loosened it to a material
■ extent up toward the masthead and
caused such damage that Defender
had to withdraw or take a liberal
chance at carrying away her top-
mast. It was afterward found that
the slacking of the rigging was so
extensive that the yacht would net
be able to compete in the second
trial race for a week.
The committee, having learned
this fact, decided at the New York
Yacht club house tonight that the
next two trial races would take place
on Tuesday and Wednesday of next
j week. It is a mystery to yachts-
I men, especially those who have given
j the closest attention to the rigging
of boats, that the Defender's stays
I weakened under a breeze which en-
abled her to still carry her club top
! sail, which she did when she stopped,
and continued to do so all the way
up the bay to the anchorage off Bay
Ridge. The Vigilant, too, was pre-
vented from going over the whole
course, but from a different cause.
After she had made her first round
! of ten miles to windward and return
j she hauled down her club topsail and
; then ran up against a wind that
! burst her jib into shreds. Nothing
i daunted, however, she ran up an-
other jib, and was proceeding on the
course the second time, when the
committee boat Luckenbach ran up
alongside while she was tacking and
notified her that she need not go
farther; that the Defender had with-
drawn, and that she, the Vigilant,
had been decided the winner of the
day's race.
When the yachts were ordered to
start on their trial journey there
was a nice little breeze of nine or ten
knots, blowing from southsouthwest.
When the racers were sent off at
11:35 there was a pretty good fleet
of steam yachts, sloops, schooners,
and even cat boats, loafing about the
line. Among them was the Eugenic,
with the blind boat builder, John B.
Herreshoff,. aboard. *T
There was no possible 'occasion for
a protest: at the start today. "When"
I the racers came about and headed
down to the line, there was fully
j three lengths of clear water be-
I tween them, the Vigilant for the first
j time being in advance. They came
■ scurrying along to the boat off the
lightship with mainsail, club top-
sail, forestaysail and jib set. The
Defender probably never showed
such a fine setting of canvas, but
i the Vigilant's clothes were even bet
; ter. Both were on the starboard
tack, having been told by the sig
nal that their course would be dead
I against the wind. As they went
', over the Vigilant set her baby top
! sail and in doing so luffed up into
the wind long enough to make her
lose probably fifteen seconds, if not j
more. As usual, the Defender went |
about aimost as soon as she had j
t crossed the line. She stood away |
1 on the port tack, while the Vigilant !
continued on a long board. The De- I
I fender stood on short tack for a j
j couple of minutes and then went
about to overhaul the Vigilant. For
some time it looked as though the
Vigilant were actually outputting
the Defender, but the appearance
was doubtless due to the fact that
the Defender was pointing higher
into the wind. It was 12:15 when the
Defender got honestly abeam of the
' Vigilant, a good sixteenth of a mile
to windward. The Vigilant, fearing
I that the Defender would pass • her,
came about on the port tack and
i tried to cress the bow of the new
J boat. As she did so she took in her
: baby jib topsail. But even that im- .
portant maneuver did not enable her 1
j to split tacks with the Defender, for '
j the Defender went about almost at !
j the same time. •
When they stood back for the New j
j Jersey shore the Defender was fully !
j hall" a mile in the lead. Both yachts I
j made the outer mark on this tack, ;
| the Defender gaining right along, :
j At the rounding she eased her main j
! sheet and took no less than seven I
■ minutes in dropping her spinnaker j
! pole and setting that sail on her !
! port side. The handling of the boat j
: was wretched. The Vigilant rounded i
: finely. The wind had run up to j
j about fifteen knots by that time, j
I and the center-boarder heeled well
! over to port to a very sharp angle ;
j before she gybed her boom over to
j port and got ready to set the spin- '
j naker on the starboard tack. On ;
' the ten-mile beat to windward the .
j Defender had gained six minutes and I
j thirty-three seconds. Then came the I
I run before the wind home. Within I
a mile of the finish line the De- I
j fender hauled down her spinnaker I
j and balloon jib topsail, running con- *
j siderably to the westward in doing j
I so. Then she made a reach for the i
j home line and got there at two ■
hours, four minutes and twenty-nine
.. seconds. She turned the Sandy Hook I
j lightship all right. The Vigilant ;
I made her rounding in much the same j
I style. By this time the wind had in- 1
I creased to eighteen or twenty knots •
'an hour. The Defender stood away j
j on the port tack for probably two |
! minutes, long enough to let the on- |
! lookers think that she was going to 1
1 obey orders and go over the course j
I again, but she stood away for Sandy j
I Hook point. There was an ominous !
j gathering of wind clouds down to the ;
southward, and the kickers said that 1
I Defender was afraid of a blow. In '
truth the boat had sustained serious i
j damage, in that her upper rigging I
i was so badly stretched and loosened i
1 that if she had been forced into a j
j second round of the course she might
have carried away a mast, if not
the mainsail itself.
In the meantime the Vigilant went
I around the Scotland lightship, but j
I took down her club topsail. A very j
; few minutes after her jib was com- i
• I pletely torn into shreds by the wind. ;
: The Vigilant had seen by this time j
that the Defender had quit, but
Commander Willard was going over 1
j the course anyhow. As soon as the j
! committee boat saw that Defender j
! had gone home, the Vigilant was I
j overtaken and informed that the I
j day's race was hers. On the run j
, home before the wind Vigilant had
! gained one minute and thirty-three
! seconds, which in proportion to the
j distance was the best gain that the
! center-boarder had made on the fin
'■ keel. Following is the time of the
boats on the first round:
Outer Elapsed
Start. Mark. Finish.Time.
Defender 11:46:53 1:09:18 2:04:29 2:17:36
Vigilant .11:45:56 1:14:54 2:08:32 2:22:36
Thus it will be seen that the De-
fender beat the Vigilant, on the
elapsed time of the only round, by
five minutes fiat.
Curry Says He Will Whip Gentry
CHICAGO, Aug. 20.— trotting
races at Washington Park were tame
today on account of the easy. time the
three - winners had in . landing :_-_ the
purses. Scarcely 500 persons paid their i
way in and there were perhaps as '
many more "deadheads." The "no
betting" rule is rigidly enforced. To
morrow James Stinson's pair, Maud B
and Damian, will endeavor to heat the
pole team record of 2:20. The pros
pects are that the great pacing race
Thursday between Joe Patchen and
John R. Gentry will bring a great
crowd. The track is very fast and
nearly every winner so far has reduced
his record from one to fifteen seconds.
Jack Curry, driver of Joe Patchen, who
recently defeated Robert J, the fastest
harness performer in the world, with :
his record of 2:01-2, says he will beat i
John R. Gentry in the three fastest
heats ever gone in a. harness race. The
friends of Gentry, however, say it can
not be done. Today's summarise:

Sixteen Injured nnd the Total
Death Li-it Is Likely to Num
ber Eleven.
PITTSBURG, Pa., Aug. 20.— An
explosion at Furnace H of the Car
negie Steel company, at Braddock,
at 5 o'clock this afternoon, killed
six" men, injured sixteen more, two
of whom died later, and destroyed
130,000 worth of property. Three of
the injured will die. All of the
killed and injured were Hungarians
except James Harrison, the fore
man. The explosion was due to a
"hang" in the furnace, which sud
denly was loosened and dropped into
the molten metal below, generating
an immense quantity of gas so sud
denly that it could not escape by
the ordinary means, and the explo
sion followed. The terrible loss of
life was due to a peculiar cause. A
few minutes before the explosion oc
curred one of the top fillers dumped
a barrow of material into the bell
of the furnace, which he had for
gotten to raise. This clogged the
top of the furnace and prevented
the gas escaping. A gang of sixteen
men, in charge of James Harrison,
were sent at once to the top of the
furnace to remove the obstruction.
All were closely crowded around the
furnace removing the material which
had been dumped on it, when there
was a terrific explosion, and men.
barrows, tools and material were
hurled in all directions. Flames,
deadly gases and smoke belched
from the furnace top, and the gang
of men fell as if shot. Only one
man was killed instantly. He was
blown from the furnace top along
the metal railroad to the elevator
shaft. Down he fell, and striking
on a car was cut in two, one half of
his body falling on one half of the
car and^ the other half on the other
side. The explosion was heard all
over Braddock. and crowds at once
rushed to the scene, but none ex
pected to witness such horrors. A
relief crew was quickly organized
and went to the top of the furnace.
where lay fifteen men, bleeding,
torn, burned and dying. The flames
and smOke were still coming from
the furnace, and the work of rescue
was dangerous in the exereme, but,
covering their hands, faces and
heads with cloths, the rescuers went
bravely to work.
The injured men were all leaning
over the mouth of the furnace when
the explosion occurred. Three men
died before they reached the bottom of
the elevator shaft and the other three
died between 5 and S o'clock this morn
ing. As fast as the injured men were
taken down from the furnace top they
were removed to an improvised hospi
tal in the company's office and the
company's staff of physicians and med
ical aid from McKeesport and Pitts
burg summoned. Nine of the men who
were on top of the furnace when they
reached the ground were revived, and
there being strong hopes for their re
covery they were taken to their homes.
The contents of the furnace were
blown out and scattered for hundreds
of yards around, falling in ail parts
of the yard, cutting and burning about
ten men who were below, but none
were seriously injured. The fiery
shower fell on the carpenter shop of
the company, about 100 yards from
the furnace, and it was soon in names
and was destroyed, with its contents.
The bell of the furnace was shattered
and scattered; the roof of the cast
house was crushed in and ruined; the
contents of the furnace were scattered
abroad, and the belief is that the fur
nace was badly damaged and may have
to be rebuilt. If this should be the
case the total damage would be $30,
--000. The Braddock fire department was
called out and prevented the spread
of the flames, and the members also
aided in the work of rescue and did
police duty. The scenes as the men
were carried to the office was intense
ly exciting and pathetic. Women and
children. rushed frantically from their
houses and the large force of police
men and guards was powerless to pre
vent them ; from rushing into the im
provised : hospital and. dead house in
the search for some member of their
Tears and agitation, anxious faces
and agonized expressions, wringing of
hands and tearing of hair, were all
witnessed around the scene of death
and destruction, and the stoutest
hearts were moved to pity. The homes
of the killed and injured men were
near the furnace, and the streets in
that vicinity were filled with a mass
of weeping, frantic, half-crazy women
and children, and that part of Brad-
dock is indeed a house "of mourning.
The names of the killed were*

A Fine Specimen of the Leather-
back Variety Caught.
Philadelphia Record.
That rare and valuable marine mon
ster, popularly known as the "Asbury
Park turtle." which furnished three
\ daya' wonder for the crowds at that
resort until it gave a final flip-flop
and died, arrived in sections at the
Academy of Natural Sciences yester-
day, the animal is known among
seamen as a leatherback turtle,, but it
boasts the scientific name of Der-
mochely Coriacea. From the head to
tail it measures 17 feet 2 inches; it
stands a full 3 feet high, and from
flipper to flipper across the back the
measurement is 7 feet 1 inch.
The weight of this wonder will never
be accurately known, but it is esti-
mated as nearly 1,000 pounds. • The
taxidermists who went to Asbury
Park from the academy to prepare the
carcass for shipment declare that six
able-bodied negroes could scarcely turn
the monster over on his back. The
shell of the marine turtle Is not like
the bony substance which distin
guishes ordinary turtles, but is of a
, tough, cartilaginous substance closely
resembling black leather. Seven rows
of little black studs ornament the
shirt of this aquatic dude.
The head is composed of almost
solid bone, with crevices for two large
eyes. There are no teeth in its mouth,
but its gullet is armed with a quantity
of spines pointing downward, so that
any luckless fish in attempting to re-
treat after being swallowed must sure-
ly impale himself on these sharp
points. The under side of the turtle is
curiously mottled with white spots.
This leatherback turtle is a most
showy and valuable specimen, and is
perhaps the largest of Its kind on ex-
hibition anywhere. It is certainly
larger than any of the three possessed
by the British Museum. Leatherbacks
are rarely seen in these days, but they
formerly inhabited the Atlantic ocean
in large numbers. This one now pos
sessed by the academy was caught off
Long Branch more than a week ago,
and a harpoon wound in its neck un-
doubtedly caused its death. Founder
Bradley, the magnate of Asbury Park,
who purchased the animal for $25. pre-
sented its body to the academy in
this city.
It is the only specimen of its kind in
the academy's possession, and is high-
ly prized accordingly, The skeleton,
with the head and flippers attached,
will be mounted and placed on exhibi
tion as soon a3 the bones are thor
oughly dried. The work of extracting
the bones will occupy the taxidermists
for several days, and they cannot be
mounted much before winter. The
shell will occupy a separate position.
The largest turtle known to scien
tists wa3 found in the Chesapeake bay
many years ago, and measuered 7 feet
8 inches in length.
It Will Be Found Equally Deli-
cious for Dessert or for Cake.
