ST. LOUIS, Mo., April 17.— Today's
game between the Browns and St. Pauls
was close and exciting during the first
Bix innings, the home team leading
up to that time by one run. Donahue
was pitching for the Browns, and his
delivery was proving very puzzling to
the visiting batsmen. Kisln^er reliev
ed "Donny" in the seventh, and fur an
inning and a half was pie for Oomis
key's team.
With the bases full in the eighth
Inning and one out.Reese Hill, the pride
of the Ozarks, was called to pull the
game out of the fire. He gave Mcßride
three straight balls, and then thai fel
low dropped the ball in front of the
plate, the result being that Hill made
a plain, every-day kind of stop and
tossed the ball to Murphy, forcing the
runner at the plate. This was luck,
as had Mcßride played the game he
would surely have received a free
passage to first, and a run would thus
have been forced over the plate. Fres
ton hit safe for a base, Nichols sin
gled, scoring a run and filling the bases
again. Glasscock followed and sent the
sphere on a line to left field, scoring
Mcßride and Preston. A foolish piece
of base running, coupled by brilliant
head work by Murphy, Douglas and
Turner, resulted In two men being run
down, retiring the side. Hill was very
fortunate in this inning, for if Mcßride
had waited and received a base on
balls, and Nichols and Glaaseock had
not become mixed up on the base*, the
visitors might still have been at the
Kisinger and Hill were not the only
"phenoms" that exploded today. There
was one other. Andy Fuller, a most
Inoffensive kind of base ball player, who
looks as though he would do nobody
any harm, not even the ball, gave a
weird exhibition of fielding and bat
ting. The best work for the Browns
was performed by Donahue, Murphy,
Hartman, Cross, Parrott and Turner.
The St. Pauls put up a greatly im
proved game over their work of the
day before. Their batting was hard
and their fielding brilliant. Nichols,
Mcßride and Preston captured every
thing that came near them. The en
tire Infield played nicely, Hollingd
worth doing probably the best work.

dred people saw Dcs fciolnes turn the tables
on Minneapolis and defeat her by a score of
1 to 0, this afternoon. The first man to bat
for Dea Moines, Letcher, made a single over
second, advanced to second by a sacrifice and
was Bent home by a single. That was the
only score of the game. Neither Bide made
an error. A total t>f only nine hits was
made, and withal It wae the most extraordi
nary game ever played In Dcs Moines bo
early In the season. From first to last It
was fast, clean-cut base ball. Ball, at short
for Minneapolis, again- played a wonderful
fielding game. One of his throws to first
was nothing less than phenomenaL Minne
apolis got but one man to ihird base, and
only twice did any of the Millers reach sec
ond. In the ninth inning, with one man out,
Wilmot singled to right and Pickett came to
bat. He sent a terrific liner between second
and first, and for an instant it looked like
a score for Minneapolis. But by a running
jump, nothing short of a miracle. Dcs Moines'
second baseman, Mohler, stopped the ball,
touched Wilmot on his way to second and
threw to first in time to make a double play
as a fitting ending to one of the most excit
ing games ever played in the city. Carney
pitched the entire game for Minneapolis and
was hit but five times safely. Sonier pitched
the first three for Dcs Moines, Leighton fin
ishing the game. The larter is an amateur.
This is his first year with a professional
team. In six innings the Millers got but two
hits off the amateur. Score by innings:

BALTIMORE, Md., April 17.— John McMa

Hi bill.
Cannibalism has been regarded as the low
est depths of degeneracy, but observations
made by F. Nordlinger prove that in animal
: life conditions are existing which are worse
than cannibalism, says the Philadelphia Rec-
I ord. The zoologist relates that he at one
I time, when digging in his garden, happened to
I cut in two a large cricket, which he thought
had been killed by the accident. Looking
ten minutes afterward at the supposedly
dead cricket, he was very much surprised
when he saw the forward end of the cricket
busy eating up the rear end. It takes pretty
good nerve to do that, but we cannot judge
of the Bensations of pain in animals of a
low order by our own sensations and feel
ings. Interested by what he had Been, Mr.
Nordlinger placed the two halves of the
cricket Into a clot of earth and some roots,
ana lie actually found that tne cricket not
only get entirely well and grew a new end,
but judging from the disappearance of every
vestige of the other part, he concluded th»t
the cricket has disposed of thai part of its
former anatomy by eating It up.

Special Correspondence of the Globe.
NEW YORK, April 15.— The instruc
tions which President Young", of the
National league, has sent out to his
umpires, preparatory to the opening of
the championship season, have a ten-
dency to temporize the new coaching
rules. He tells his umpires in the same
sentence to strictly enforce the rules,
but not to be too aggressive about it.
If the rules are to be strictly enforced,
aggressiveness on the part of the um
pire is absolutely necessary. There
fore I am inclined to believe that the
umpires will lean strongly to the latter
part of the instructions and not make
a radical departure from their policy of
last season, which was tinctured with
a great deal of leniency.
Probably Mr. Young has hearkened
to the voices of the captains and of the
rooters which have gone up in a grand
chorus since the Baltimore meeting,
protesting against the literal enforce
forcement of the revised coaching rule.
The almost universal cry is, "Do not
make Quaker meetings out of base ball
games or you'll kill off interest." If a
plan could be devised whereby a happy
medium would be reached between
senseless yelling on the coach lines and
Just enough chatter to keep up the
excitement, it would be a happy day
for the national league.
As it, there is bound to be trouble
on the umpire's hands during the first
few weeks of the season". He will be
placed betwixt Scylla and Charybdis,
and only the patient, more experienced
and conservative members of the staff
will pass through safely.
The ante-season months of this year
will go on record as noted for the large
number of ridiculous base ball stories
which have been spread broadcast
through the land. Two parties are
blamable for this state of affairs— viz.,
the advertisement seeking magnate and
the grab-all space writers who stand
ready to make a story out of any
thing which may be given to them.
The most silly of all these fakes was
the report that the Brooklyn club had
offered the Cleveland club $100000 cash
for its players and franchise. The
story on its face was absurd. In the
first place, the money would represent
nothing but the Cleveland team. The
Cleveland franchise without a first
elass team would not fetch a dollar
under the hammer, because its owners
have time and again declared that even
with a second-place team the city
would not support the club.
In the next place, the Brooklyn's
third-base man, center fielder and
right fielder are far superior to the men
who cover those three positions for
Tebeau's nine. That leaves the $100,000
to represent the release of Tebeau
Child*, McKean, Burkett, Zimmer
Young. Cuppy, O'Connor, Wilson and
Wallace— ten players, two of whom are
at least second class. The days of $10,
--000 payments for a player's release
have passed forever. Especially has
the time gone by when any one club
will pay that price for each of ten
players, including men like Wilson and
Wallace. In the third place, the Brook
lyn club has repeatedly announced
that, on account of the negative action
of the minority stockholders, it was
not in a position to expend a dollar in
strengthening its team. In spite of
these three patent arguments against
the truth of that story, it was given
widespread credence, and thereby the
parties who started it off attained some
secret end.
A similar story was set floating in
which eleven league clubs were going
to pay Rusie's last year's salary and
thus compromise his case against the
New York club, this, too, in the face
of the league's action at Baltimore,
where the body pledged itself by a vote
of eleven to one to aid the New York
club in resisting Rusie's suit for re
Should the court order the rebellious
pitcher's release from reservation there
is not a club of the twelve which, if it
consulted no outside interest, would
not like to sign him. Yet that decision,
coupled with Rusie's subsequent en
gagement by another club, would so
seriously effect the future interests of
the other clubs that it is very doubtful
if his triumph in court would restore
the player to the National league.
The magnates have learned the lesson of
what selfishness costs and learned it well.
It has lately been published that former Pres
ident A. G. Mills resigned from the league
in 1885 on account of a pressure of business.
That is a mistake. He resigned for principle,
and the story has never been told. I will
here add it to base ball history.
In 1884 the Union association was organ
ized for the avowed purpose of breaking up
the National league and the reserve rule.
One of its acts was to use large cash bonuses
and exorbitant salaries to tempt League play
ers to break contracts. The only players to
succumb to the temptation were MeCormick,
Briody and Glasscock, of the National league
club at Cleveland. They "jumped" in mid
season, and as a consequence the Cleveland
club was bankrupted.
The Union association failed at the end
of its first season, and the treacherous Cleve
land trio were blacklisted. At the spring
meeting in 1885 several League teams were
found to be weak, and a proposition was
made to reinstate the blacklisted trio and d's
tribute them where they would So the most
good. A. G. Mills was the league's president
and he had originated the reserve rule as
well as the national agreement. Against the
proposition to reinstate he earnestly protes:
ed, and warned the magnates that such a
mistake would some day cost them dear if
they made it. Over his protest and against
his warning the players were reinstated. At
the close of the session Mr. Mills resigned
and declared before all the cubs that so long
as one of those three players was recognized
in professional base ball he would never en
ter the league's council chambers, ihas was
twelve years age. Glasscock is stilT playing
and although Mr. Mills is one of the league's
five honorary members, he has faithfully kept
his pledge.
How well his warning was fulfilled the
National league magnates can attest. Had
those three men not been forgiven there
W .£ U ! d J lave been no Payers' league in 1890.
That Players league cost more than $1,000 000
and almost killed the great professional
The magnates now often think of Mills
his warning, his well-kept vow and the cost
of rejecting his advice. And when they re
call all this they are very sure they will ndt
repeat that error. _O. P. Caylor.
The schedule adopted by the Western league
leaves several loopholes for managers to fill
in. Detroit has open dates right through the
season, and many of these are on account of
the Sunday games. The home dates open are
June 18. July 2 and Sept. 14. Wh|le abroad Mr
van Derbeck would like to fill in these da'v« :
May 17, en route from Grand Rapids to Mil
waukee; June 1, en route from Minneapolis
to Detroit; July 11, Indianapolis; July 13 en
route from Indianapolis to Minneapolis- July
20, en route from St. Paul to Milwaukee' July
30, en route from Kansa3 City to Detroit-
Aug. 12, en route from Detroit to Kansas City :
Aug. 17, 18 and 19, en route from Kansas City
to St. Paul; Aug 26, en route from Minneap
olis to Detroit.
Whlie iv« muddy condition of the ground*
prevents any outdoor work, the men are not
losing anything. They put in their regulation
four hours today learning signals and dis
cussing the game. Manager Walking invites
suggestions in the way of plays, and the men
are not Blow in presenting their ideas. "When
ever a good play is suggested it is carefully
gone over, and a signal is arranged for it.
Base ball is becoming more and more like
football. The real up-to-date manager has a
signal for every combination of circumstances
which may arise oa the ball field, and usually
from the bench, keeps every player informed
as to what the others are trying to do. — In
dianapolis News. Watkins always did have
this signal "hunph."
The Columbus Dispatch says: Don't forget
"Old Hoss," the king. Crooks. Jack has the
dope book screwed down to the bottom of
his trunk. ''Nay, nay," says he, "no booze

I wonder if any of these pool rooms will open

Several Reasons ago, while the Chicagos
were playing a game, s>ays the Kansas City
Times, Anson was coaching on the first base
line, and one of his men was barely nipped
at the bag. The umpire ran down to see the
play, and as he passed Anson he asked: "How
is it, cap?" "He's out," replied Anse, and
the decision was rendered accordingly. In
that same game there was a similar play
while Comiskey was standing on the coach
line. When the umpire asked Comnny the
same question he was told that he was man
aging a club, not umpiring a game. All per
fectly proper on Oomiskey's part, still, the
absence of diplomacy and the constant pres
ence of truth and courage is what has made
Anson stand higher in the esteem of the bet
ter class of ball players and patrons of the
game than any man who ever drew on knick
erbockers, hose and spiked shoes.
"Condition," said Arlie Latham to Tom
Loftus. 'condition? I worried myself into
condition wondering if you were going to
take me back or not. That'll get the best of
'em in shape." After chatting about other
subjects Latham inquired, "WTiat are you
going to do with all these third basemen? I
don't see anything else but three-baggers in
sight Some of them will have to go."
"Well," replied Tom, quietly, "I've got a
good 'un in that young fellow Babb. He can
Jump three feet in the air and pull 'em
down; and his pick-ups and batting— wait and
see him today." "Say, Tom," said Arlle,
"He's got to jump after I get out on the
field. He'll have to jump twelve feet in the
air and climb that fence if he wants to be
in the game with yours truly. I'll have "em
all hunting stepladders. And this wing? Say,
it's fright this year."
Albert Mott, the Baltimore&n who is at the
head of the L. A. W racing board, has had
an extensive connection with base ball. Suf
fering from too constant attention to desk
work, he originated the Creighton club in
Baltimore in 1873, equipped it and paid all
its expenses. He wae manager, captain and
dataller. Among the talent developed in its
existence of five years were such lights as
"Jake" Evans, -Hugh Daly; the one-armed
pitcher, Lew Dickerson, and "Bill" Smiley.
In 1883 Mr. Mott began his letters to the
Sporting Life under the ncm de plume of
T. Tom Trebla. a. transposition of the letters
of his name. This was shortened to "T. T.

President Young computes the cost of trav

--880 for a season. The salaries average $35,000

Pop Anson is making every effort to teach
Denzer, his new pitcher, how to pitch a slow
ball, but he cannot hide his handjp when he
grips the ball to pitch it, and the batter can

A Colambns Writer Evidently
Thinks Corbelt Will Not Show
There for a Time,
Peter Maher's friends are not only
loyal, but legion, and they predict that
If he. other than Kid McCoy, should
be given the first chance to wrest
Fitzsimmons' recently won laurels
from him. They assert that Maher
has abandoned the intemperance which
prevented his making as brilliant a
showing in his earlier battles as he
might have done. Nevertheless, he
then demonstrated that he was a game
fellow, with a punch like the kick of
a mule. He was allowed to go as he
pleased, and had no coaching, but if
he had had the proper training, Fitz
simmons might not be the champion
today. Maher's friends are pushing
him for the championship. They seem
to think he is easily better than Cor
bett, and that Corbett knew this when
Maher knocked out O'Donnell at Coney
Island last year, or he would not have
jumped into the ring and bestowed on
him the belt as he did. Maher's friends
claim that Corbett was surprised with
the Irishman's powers, and doubtless
soliloquized thus:
"Maher whipped O'Donnell quicker
than I could, thus proving that he is
a harder puncher. It would take me
six or eight rounds to defeat O'Don
nell, and Maher whips him in a round.
If the Irishman can punch so much
harder than I, it is a cinch that he
can take all the punching that I can
deal out to him." Following this line
of argument the friends of Maher
would willing pick Peter providing he
and the Pompadour were matched.
The most desirable match that Cor
bett can get on in the absence of an
other battle with Fitzsimmons is one
with Maher, opines the Kansas City
Times. A mill between the Pompadour
and the Apollo of Galway would be a
great drawing card. The Pompadour's
aspirations t<> shine as a Thespian
were erased with that final blow of the
Kangaroo's, though he can still do
business with the mitts and make as
much money as any beaten champion.
Julian's failure to throw Fitzsimmans
into the New York theatrical swirl
while the excitement over the Carson
City fight was fresh was as serious,
financially, as for him to permit Fitz
to immediately announce his with
♦ ♦ •
Mr. Corbett's tactics in chasing Fitz
simmons from town to town are not
taken kindly by liberal sporting men.
It savors too much of the whining cur
that snaps at one's heels in the dark.
When Jim beat Sullivan in New Or
leans, Fltz begged for a match, but it
will be remembered that Corbett told
him to "go and get a reputation."
That settled it. Never once did thi
Australian nag at his mantle, but took
on all comers and knocked them down
like ten pins on a regulation alley.
In Steve O'Donnell, Corbett thought
he had a world beater. One who could
go down the line and get all the money,
and in fact he so stated in cold type.
When he saw how easily Peter Maher
took O'Donnell's measure, he wanted
none of Maher's game, forthwith jump
ed through the ropes, tendered Maher
the belt, with the proviso that Maher
should not challenge him (Corbett), and
publicely proclaimed Peter as the
champion to succeed him. Not long
after this Fitz lulled Peter to repose
at Langtry, Tex., and legally wrested
from him the coveted honors. Stung
to the quick by adverse newspaper
and sporting criticisms, Corbett with
failing prospects staring him in the
face, empty box office receipts looming
up nightly, was forced for protection's
sake to meet Fitz. The outcome of
this we all know. He fought gamely
and as well as he knew how and is
entitled to all the credit in the world
for so doing, but It stands to reason
that Fitzsommons is entitled to a need-
Ed rest; that too without being hound
ed from town to town by a defeated
man. Billy Brady voiced the sentiment
of every honest sporting, man in the
world when he said: "The only thing
for Jim to do now. is to take on Maher
and Sharkey, in fact every man now
before the public and show them he is
their superior. Then force Fitzsim
mons to again try conclusions. If he
cannot bring such a thing about, it is
an easy matter to claim the champion
ship and defend it against all comers."
Mr. Corbett's methods will avail him
little save among a certain element
who can "see no good come out of
Nazareth." — Salvator in Columbus Dis
Daly Interested in the Anaconda,
and lluttc Meetings.
When Marcus Daly began breeding horse*
a few years ago some people thought that he
might better move from Montana to Ken
tucky, where the climate is supposed to be
better and where he could have a chance to
Bee his horses race without leaving his own
state. Rather than to move from Montana
to Kentucky Mr. Daly has moved much of
Kentucky's horee interest to his own home.
The best that the blue grass pastures had
to offer in both runners and trotters has
been purchased by the man from Montana.
He has also been a liberal importer, and now
as a race meeting promoter he has taken
away from Kentucky the man who made
famous the great trotting meeting at Lex
ington each fail. Mr. Tipton will manage
two meetings that are to run from Jun« 2?
to Aug. 28 in Anaconda and Butte, twenty
live days in the former and twenty-nine days
in the latter place. As these towns are only
twenty-seven miles apart, it makes fifty-four
dayß of racing for that locality. The pro
gramme will be made up of twenty-four
■take events, twelve for runner* and twelva
ior th« harness horses. Added to these will
be a liberal li«t ol purees for runpers and
the harness horses, arranged so as to best
suit the Btables that summer in Montana.
With a shorter and less attractive meeting
in th« places mentioned the amount handled
in the auctions by the late Charley Stiles was
$1,600,000. Some of the best of the stables
now at the coast will spend the summer in
Montana, and if money and square dealing
will attract the harness-horse men they will
be there.
Description of Denmark, Jr., Bonglit
for the President,
LEXINGTON, Ky., April 16.— Denmark Jr..
the superb saddle gelding purchased here th'.s
week by Charles Fleischinan, of Cincinnati,
for President McKinley, is just five years old,
stands 15% hands high, and weighs 1,125
pounds. When Mr. Fleiscliman arrived in
Lexington he went immediately to his friend,
Gus Straus, the turfman, of this city, and
asked him what he thought about Shelby T.
Harbison's horse Denmark for the president
to ride. Mr. Straus went with him to Har
bison's establishment, and the well-known
educator of saddle horses exhibited Denmark
to the admiring Mr. Fleischman. He told
Mr. Harbison that it was very easy to un
derstand how he, after training the horse,
could make him go through the various evo
lutions so perfectly, and he ventured the opin
ion that a stranger would not be able to make
the horse change his gait so readily, and al
together show such ability as a saddler. Ac
cordingly Mr. Fleischman's coachman, who
had accompanied him to Lexington, and who
knows but little about saddlers, was allowed
to mount Denmark and put him through his
paces. To the astonishment of both Mr.
Fleischman and Mr. Straus, the horse acted
as well with the stranger on his back as he
had done when Mr. Harbison bestrode him,
and after nearly an hour's exhibition Mr.
Fleischman said he thought Denmark would
do for a president to ride, and he immediately
closed the trade at a very stiff figure.
Mn Harbison did not begin the education
of Denmark until last spring, as he pre
ferred to allow him to get his full growth.
He developed Into a first-class saddler so
rapidly that his owner entered him in many
saddle rings at the fairs throughout Ken
tucky and Missouri, and he was uniformily
successful in winning first prizes. He is a
beautiful bright bay, fine clean-cut bony
head, large hazel eyes, long, tapering ears,
well set on his head; beautiful neck, carried
in absolutely perfect saddle horse form; high
withers, insuring a good seat to the rider;
short back and well coupled, indicating that
he can carry weight without tiring; large
quarters, heavy tail, magnificently carried
when in motion; large body, well rounded,
and perfect legs and feet. In his entire con
formation he is a perfect model.
Denmark has been educated to conform to
the gaits laid down by the National Saddle
Horse Breeders' association, namely: Run
ning walk, rack (better known as S'ingle
footing), trot and canter. He is bo well edu
cated that he changes from one gait to an
other at the word of command. He excels
at the rack, a gait which is very popular with
tlX^resident, and of which he spoke partic
ular!/ to Mr. Fleischman when he commis
sioned him to buy the horse. At the canter
he is perfect, and has been taught to lead
with either foot, and change the lead at the
word of command. He needs neither whip
nor spur, as he will increase his speed from
a running walk to a rapid canter by the
spoken word. His back is so well suited to
the saddle that he can be ridden tor days
at a time and yet no signs of saddle marks
can bo discerned on his back.
He is as docile as a lamb, and when going
at the highest rate of speed will stop in
stantly at the word of command. He will
stand perfectly still wherever left. He is
well tempered and is not afraid of iteam
cars, electric cars or any of the things which
usually frighten horses. A hunter can rifle
him and shoot a shotgun from his back and
he never flinches at the heavy fire. Denmark
has been greatly admired t>y the thousands
who have seen him in the show rings in this
state and in Missouri, and the president is to
be congratulated on having secured such a
splendid animal to ride.
