[NDIANAPOLJB, lnd., Sept. 25.—In
tfahapoUa won the second game of
the Free Press cup Bcrto today. The
most lieautiful exhibition of "quitting"
that has ever been seen on the Indi
anapolis grounds was witnessed from
the aggregation which walked off with
the pennant of 1896. In their palmiest
streak of losing during the summer the
Indianapolis players never laid down
like Wilmot's men yesterday, but they
however managed* to stack up seven
mtots. Preston's error was the most
Costly of any by the visitors, and gave
Wiiinot the blind staggers. With three
men os bases he got Wood's single and
find the ball into the left bleachers,
Tour runs resulting. Piggemeier had as
much to do with his support wobbling
as any man on the team. In the
fourth inning, with two men out, he
ticketed three men to base, and then
got in a hole with Shannon, who poked
out a single scoring two of the runners.
In the eighth, with the game hope
tersly lost, and when Lally dropped a
high fly in his field, Wilmot's condition
Was mere than picturesque. He looked
% fit subject for a mad house, and Schri
ver fell down at the plate and kicked
up hLs heels. Up to the seventh inning
It was nip and tuck. The errors of each
te-am had proven equally costly, and
the hits were almost even up. Easter
Fruit was the Millers' porticn in the
Seventh, however, while* Indianapolis
jroved over on Easy street. Sheibeck,
liuckley and Stewart all registered
singles. Wood then soaked one to
Preston, who in his anxiety to catch
{Stewart at third, threw into the bleaeh
prs and four runs were netted. Dam
man struck cut and Shannon was
thrown out at first, but Motz smashed
m triple and Hcgriever a double, mak
ing- the total for the inning five, Hoggie
being caught napping off of second.
For the Millers, Ball got a three-bagger
In the fight with one out, and scored
t>u Preston's retirement, and L.al'y was
thrown out by Sheibeek.
Aided by Connors and Lally Indian
apolis took quarters on the shady side
of Easy street in her half of the eighth.
Motz opened with a double. Shiebeck
Hied to Wilmot and Motz took third.
Buckley placed one in Ball's hands and
Motz was was run down, Buckley
reaching second. Connors fumbled
Stewart's grounder and Lally muffed
wood's long fly, which permitted Buck-

With a better understanding of the
transient nature of the many phys

rightly 'directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative. Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with mill ions of families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who'value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Calr
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by

If in the enjoyment at good health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are thea not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful

Stewart and Wood. Shannon connect
ed for two bases, sending- Damman
home and McCarthy singled, scoring
Shannon, but McCarthy was caught
stealing. In the ninth Wilmot soaked
one for two bases, was advanced by
Schriver's fly to Hogriever and scored
on Werden's single. The side was re
tired without further scores. Buckley
was hurt by a foul tip in the ninth and
had to retire. His injury will keep

rnlskey expected nothing of a man who
never h«d played professional ball;
it vas not much trouble to give him a
trial. But the test turned out differ
ently from what he expected. The
visitor showed that he had speed in
trials, and then when he was put in a
game he showed that he had good
nerves and good judgment. Manager
Comiskey himself says that Denzer
has been his stand-by this season in
the box. "I have wcrked him pretty
hard," said Comiskey yesterday, but
he has always been willing, and has
et.rod the w^rk well."

General Utility Man Frank Kraus, of
the St. Paul base ball team of 1896, re
turned yesterday from Indianapolis,
where the team closed its season. The
other members of the team will prob
ably not return until spring, and prob
ably some of them will not show up
then, for there are likely to be some
holes in the team if Comiskey vigorous
ly enforces his anti-liquor rule.
Manager Comiskey professes confi
dence in his ability to secure a strong
team next season. Good talent is plen
tiful, and while the team will be weak
ened in the box by the drafting of
Denzer, he is prospecting already for
new pitching talent and lives in hope
of finding another Denzer playing the

Averaged Four ana Better While

Oneof the best amateur billiard games
yet seen in St. Paul waa that played in
the tourney at Foley's last night be
tween Witt Cochrane and Torrance.
Cochrane obtained leave from his ardu
ous duties as vice president of the
sound money meeting long enough to
run 43 innings. He was in fine stroke
and finished the 180 in that number, his
best runs being 18, 15 and 13. His av
erage it will be seen was better than
four. Torrance played in poor luck,
several good runs being spoiled by the
balls lining up. As it was he made 128
in 42 innings, an average of three, and
double figures four times. Tonight
Poland and Larkin will play.

LONDON, Sept. 25.— Sir George New
nes, who contemplated issuing a chal
lenge for the America cup last year
after the Defender- Valkyrie fiasco, re
cently made a request to the royal
London yacht club to support him in
issuing a challenge for the cup, the
condition to be attached to the chal
lenge that the matches should be sailed
off Halifax, and that only the load
water line and the length of the chal
lenger should !>e required to be stat?d
as in the ease of the Valkyrie. The
Royal London Yacht club has declined
to accede to Sir George's request on
the ground that the club had previous
ly passed a resolution to the effect
that the new deed of gift of the New
York Yacht club for the cup was in
imical to the sport of yachting.

Young Hollingsworth. an Indianapolis boy,
Is playing a brilliant fielding game for St.
Paul. It is to be regretted that he did not
get into the game sooner, for the season was
half over before Comiskey would trust him
with the position. He is playing short now
as well as any man in the league and looks
like a comer.— lndianapolis News.
Fifleld will probably be recalled by Chi
cago this fall. He was lent to the Tigers
near the close of last season and the Chi
cago club has never cut the string. He
has done brilliant work in the box for De
troit this season, and ranks as one of the
best in the league. With Fifleld. Callahan
and Denzer on the pitching staff of the Colts
Chicago will be better equipped with young
pitchers than any club in the big league. —

there is one thing certain — they always give
Indianapolis a hard fight, and the latest name

CHICAGO, Sept. 25.--The American record

finish was: Gimm, 48G miles 1,151 yards-

!n the day that the American record was cer
tain to be wiped cut, and it appeared to be
equally certain that the world's record of
553 miles 1,498 yards, made by Riveirre would
r-H be touched. This distracted somewhat
from the interest in the match, but neverthe
less an immense crowd waa in the building
to watch the finish of the race. Waller
Schinner and Miller were the only men riding
at 9 o'clock. Gimm kept at it until close
up to the hour, when seeing that he had
first place for sure, he retired with over 486
pies to his credit. Myers, seeing that he
had do chance to pass the man next ahead of
Mai. also dropped out. There has been some
.ee.mg between Waller and Gimm, and 'he
former rode very hard daring the afternoon
to make up the difference betwen his se&re
and th&t of Gimm, and despite the earnest

On Points White Sa i«l to Have Had
a Shade the Be»t ef .the Spirited
NEW YORK, Sept. 25.— George Dixon
and Tommy White, of Chicago, fought
twenty rounds to a draw tonight in the
Broadway Athletic club, which is un
der the management of Tom O'Rourke.
Probably 5,000 people witnessed the
flight which was unusually fine. Pre
ceding this fight Danny Mcßride, of
this city, and Johnny Gorman, of Long
Island City, fought ten rounds, and
Referee Austin gave Mcßride the de
cision. Then Dixon and White ap
peared. Each was said to weigh 125
pounds. They were warmly greeted by
their partisans, there, being consider
able money up, however at odds of 2
to 1 on Dixon.
The first seven rounds were not
eventful, and honors were about even.
Both had fought hard. In the eighth
both jabbed lefts on the face, and
Dixon's mouth began to bleed. This
was first blood for White. Dixon rushed
Wildly and got his right on White's
head. In the ninth round Dixon tried
with his left for face, but White
stopped him. Dixon swung his right
on the head, and White his left on the
face. Dixon's mouth began to bleed
again, but he drove a hard left on the
face which staggered White. He rushed
and sent a heavy left on the body
vhieh almost stopped "White. Dixon
swung his left on the body. White
then put two lefts on Dixon's mouth
without a return.
In the eleventh ro^nd White rushed
Dixon to the ropes, and Dixon went
back at him with a left on the ribs.
Dixon smashed a terrific left on the
nose which sent White's head back.
Then he swung his left twice on the
body. White's nose began to bleed, but
.he got in a straight left on Dixon's
nose when the gong rang. In the next
three rounds both landed often, and
each brought blood. The fighting was
fast and furious but not sensational.
In the fifteenth White Jabbed his
left four times on Dixon's face, and
Dixon swung rights on the face and
body. White jabbed his left on the
face again, and he had Dixon's right
eye in trouble. These last three rounds
were White's, and he looked good
enough to stay out the twenty rounds.
In the sixteenth the men battered each
other furiously and Dixon's eye suf
fered again. In the next round White's
ribs showed red and raw. Dixon rushed
and put in three lefts on the body
quickly. In the eighteenth and nine
teenth rounds hard smashing on the
head, nose and body was continued by
both men and showed itself felt.
In the twentieth round they jabbed
on the face and clinched. Dixon
smashed his left very, hard on the face.
Both smashed rights; and defts on the
face and body to a clinch. Rapid fight
ing and lefts in hurricane style fol
lowed. It was one of the best rounds
seen in this vicinity. Dixon grew very
tired. He clinched repeatedly, but his
efforts early in the fight had weakened
him, while the Chicago boy seemed to
gain in strength. The crowd rose to
their feet and yelled words of encour
agement to both pugilists. When the
bell ended the contest, the partisans of
both yelled for a decision in favor of
their particular choice, but the referee
declared the bout a draw. This de
cision was received with cheers, but
many of those who watched all the
points made were of the opinion that
White had a shade the better of the

the law providing for the approval of
normal school diplomas from other
states, eighty-two diplomas have been
thus approved by the superintendent of
public instruction. This approval
makes them state professional certifi

one for two years on presentation.
Upon the unanimous recommendation,
however, of the presidents of the Min

of expectation. "The Martian" will be

Now as Always, Gen. Palmer De
clared, National Honor Wum the
Thing: He Would Protect.
BALTIMORE, Md., Sept. 25.— A thor
oughly sympathetic audience, number
ing between 4,000 and 5,000, assembled
in Music hall here tonight to greet
Gen*. John M. Palmer, of Illinois, and
Simon B. Buckner, of Kentucky, the
nominees of the National Democratic
party for president and vice president.
Eoth gentlemen were hailed with the
most vociferous applause and the
pointa in their addresses were received
with shouts of approval. The meeting
was held under the auspices of the Na
tional Democracy of Maryland, and
prior to the introduction of the na
tional candidates an electoral ticket for
the sate was unanimously ratified by
those present.
J. J. Donaldson, of this city, presided
and the list of vice presidents em
braced the names of many of the repre
sentative merchants and financiers of
the city and state. Gen. Palmer was
escorted upon the platform by ex-Go v.
William Pinckney White, and when the
audience caught sight of them, it rose
en masse and cheered itself hoarse.
This demonstration was repeated when
Gen. Buckner appeared. When in the
course of his remarks Gen. Palmer
mentioned the name of William J. Bry
an., it was hailed with mingled hisses
and applause, lasting five minutes.
Every mention of the names of Mc-
Kinley and Cleveland called forth en
thusiastic cheers. Gen. Palmer spoke
in part as follows:
hJ tT 11 !, 1^ ieny , that l am * re »tly flattered
iv i ? smd5 md words ot yo"r chairman and by
the kindness with which you have received
me. I have for mere years than I would like
to confess, provided I wished to marry in
your city, nerved my country to the best of
my ability. I have always acted upon my
own convictions of duty, and, as I said on a
former occasion. I have had no one whom I
could properly invite to share my responsi
bilities. I am proud to be recognized by
your chairman and by the Democracy of the
United States, as the Democratic candidate
for the presidency, and I am proud to be
associated with the distinguished candidate
for the vice presidency.
Gen. Palmer then referred to the fact that
he and his associate had long ago differed as
to the relative right* of the states and had
met on more than one battlefield. He con
gratulated his countrymen that both had sur
vived and had lived to see "our country
again one, and that all of us are loyal to the
flag." Continuing, he said:
Now, you are aware of the fact that there
are now seven parties struggling for the
presidency of the United States. (Laughter
and applause.) I require a pair of glasses to
read them. There is what this little primer
calls the Democratic party, that ia the party
that assembled in convention in Chicago and
nominated William J. Bryan (applause lon»
continued, followed by hisses) for the presi"

dency, and Arthur Sewall, of Maine, for ttie
vice presidency. (Applause and hisses.)
Gen. Palmer then reviewed the action
of the various party conventions, re
ferring especially to the financial plank
adopted at Chicago.
The convention at Indianapolis was content
to submit its claims to the country upon a
declaration of principles, clear, concise, frank
and bold. That convention declared that gold
was the coin of large transactions and that
silver could be used only as a subsidiary
coin. It did not propose an international con
ference or commission in order to settle that
question. The Republican party talked about
the co-operation of other nations. The Demo
cratic convention at Indianapolis knew that
no such co-operation waa possible; they
knew that other countries that are interested
in great commercial transactions, I mean the
commercial nations of the world, have no de
sire to adopt, in any sense, the free coinage
of silver, and when we s.poke to the peoplo
of the country on. that subject, we were frank;
we asserted that the existing standard is the
true standard, and one that ought to be
Mr. Bryan represents four parties, favoring
free coinage — they favor some other things,
too. The so-called Democratic convention
assembled at Chicago denounced the courts;
it denounced the president for his interfer
ence, for the maintenance of public order
and for the enforcement of the federal laws.
That was donaxin order to placate a certaiji
element, and it was done largely under the
influence of the present governor of Illinois
and a candidate for re-election. (Hisses.)
The speaker added that other conventions
favored governmental acquisition of railways
and telegraphs, the referenSum and other
Populist ideas. Mr. Bryan, said he, is the
repr*.3entattive of all these elements, and he
has uttered no word of opposition, no word
of condemnation of any of these vagaries,
and, therefore, in the light «f what we know,
he must approve them all. The speaker de
clared, however, that the real question no-w
at i&sue is the free coinage of silver, whh-h
question he then proceeded to explain and
discuss at considerable length.
Mr. Bryan, said Mr. Palmer, treats this
whole subject as tf it was a thing of mer*
k-Kislation. and the Chicago convent'on de
nounceti this gold standard as a British mat
ter. I tell you, my countrymen, that if this
matter could be controlled by mere leg'sla
tion, we would consider it and this Imputa
tion upon us, upon the American people, of
being the slaves of Great Britain, is an in
famous outrage, whoever says it. Who of
us is the servant and slave of Great Brita'.n?
The Great Master said, "Be honest." and If
this country 's hon°st it can meet Great Bri
tain everywhere, upon every standard and
upon every theme.
Gen. Buckner, upon being introduced,
paid a flattering compliment to his
audience and pleasantly alluded to the
manner in which the band had mingled
the lira "My Maryland" and ."My Old
Kentucky Home" !n the earlier part of
the exercises. He then launched upon
an argument cf the coinage question,
illustrating: his remarks by holding up
a silver dollar, which he declared is a«
good as a gold dollar because the
stamp of the government makes it so,
but which under the free coinage plan
would be compelled to shift for Itself,
in which event, he argued, its value
would sink to that of the bullion that
entered into its composition. He used
as a further illustration the fact that
during the late rebellion a pair of boots
brought $300 in Confederate money, and
inquired of his hearers if that was
the kind of an increase in the value of
commodities they wanted.
Gen. Buckrer contended that free
coinage' of silver would result in a
profit to the silver miner at tho ex
pense of those whe do not own sil<-<*r
mines nor silver bullion. The Demo
cratic party, he said, has always been
a national party from the time of Jeff
erson to the present day. He referred
to the disfranchise nent of the Southern
voters by the Republican party, and
assertf-d that the Democracy, in elect
ing Grover Cleveland, had reunited the
North and South and had done away
with sectionalism. The speaker re
viewed the administration of Cleveland.
"1 ask you, men of the' South, to con
sider this," Said he, "four of the mem
ber* of Cleveland's cabinet are from
the Southern states. Men from the
South are seated upon the bench of the
United States supreme court side by
side with men from California, filial In
dignity and equally recognized."
The meeting closed with the "Star
Spangled Banner" and three cheers for
the ticket.
