GAMES SCHEDULED FOR TODAY.
Kansas City at St. Paul.
Grand Rapid.- at Indianapolis.
Minneapolis at Milwaukee.
One run each day seems to be the
lirr.it of the ambition of the Kansas
City team, and even though Manager
Manning sent out into the prairies last
r.ight to bring to base ball life again
tin* once discarded remains of Pitcher
William Carney, at no time during
yesterday's game were the Cowboys
within sight of victory.
Denzer, who faced the Missourians,
was as insoluble as the granite foun
dations of the new capitol, and the
Cowboys only were able to secure
their much coveted single score in the
fifth inning, ' when Sammy Gillen
slipped in the grass, wet from a show
er which had occurred during the
game, and made a bad throw by first
base, on which Carney, from a single,
scored, and Menefee, who gave Gillen
his opportunity, went around to third.
Carney was wild in the first three
Innings, and the numerous bases he
presented contributed largely to the
score, although a succession of five
hits, one of them a double, all after
two were out in the third, piled up
the total of ten which faced Kansas
City throughout. After the third, Car
ney had the locals guessing, and the
game was quick thereafter, being fin
ished ten minutes shorter than any
game played on the local field this sea-
The Cowboys went to bat first, it
being a very likely contingency that
four and a half innings might be a
game, if the rain that was threatened
came. Menefee- lined out a beautiful
drive directly over second base, and
while he was forced out by Nichol
son, Connaughton helped the thing by
a hot one to Denzer. Roger could not
hold it, but Hollingsworth did, and
threw the short stop out. McVicker's
foul to Glasscock, taken well up in the
cycle track near the right bleacher,
ended the half.
Local fans were given a diversion
by the appearance of Preston as first
to bat, Mcßride's ankle being in bad
shape yet. Pickett, by a fast throw,
-•aught the substitute off first. Carney
tvas as wild as a yearling colt, and
gave Nyce and George bases in quick
mccession. Glasscock singled, scoring
*>ne, and then he and George worked a
louble steal which scored another. It
ivas close at the plate on George. Is
"-ell's two-bagger, a nice drive down
:he right foul line, scored Glasscock,
md three runs were in when Gillen
jtruck out, and, after Spies got a base.
Hollingsworth sent Gear a fly.
Gear wasted a two-bagger in tin
tvake of two foul flies, and Kansas
Dity was again blacked.
Denzer's base on balls was followed
-jy two pop-ups, after which Carney
presented George with four bad ones.
;00. Glasscock and Isbell straightened
nut the Carney curves for a base each
md scored two runs before Gillen was
lent to the bench by Gear.
A strike out and two foul flies pro
vented an error by Gillen from giving
:he visitors a score, even if it did give
Nicholson three bases. Sammy threw
;he ball badly, and it went to the
St. Paul's last runs, it turned out,
yere to be secured in the third. Spies,
--resent* d with a base, was forced out
ay Hollingsworth, and Nicholson's
:hro\v cut off Denzer, handily. Pres-
Kui, however, opened a bouquet which,
jn counting, was found to consist ot
ive successive hits, Glasscock's being
i double, and when Gillen came up,
Ive runs were in. Connaughton fum
aled Sammy's grounder, but Spies
went out for the second time in the
.lining, on a grounder to Nicholson, bo
fore any other run could lie scored.
After McVicker's pop-up to Gillen,
Pickett's single, and Glasscock's fail
ire to catch Spies' throw on Meeks*
ihort hit, gave the visitors a chance.
3ear, however, sent a grounder to Gil
en and a double play, quickly work
id, retired the side, still blanked.
Menefee took flies from the first two.
\ pitched ball hit Preston, but Nye
fouled one to Blanford, and the fifth
rraa called. The shower which had
•hreatened to stop the. game, now
deared up. Blanford was out to Glass
:ock before Carney obtained first base
>n a slow one to Gillen, which could
jot be thrown to first base in time to
jut off the happy pitcher. Menefee
Dowled a ball through the wet grass
:o Gillen, who got it, but in throwing
dipped, and the ball went by Glass
•ock to the bleachers. Carney scored
md Jack went to third. Two flies,
aowever, kept him from scoring. The
kicals wasted two singles by Glas***
•oek and Isbell. the fourth safe hit for

jSenzer's grounder to Connaughton re
tired the locals for the first time with
out reaching first base.
Denzer threw out Gear, and Blanford
and Carney went out straight to
Glasscock and Hollingsworth respec
tively. The Saints did not get the ball
further than the base lines, although
Glasscock did get a base on balls, only
to be left on it.
Following Menefee's pop-up to Holly.
Nicholson started a stinger into left
field and stole second, but Connaugh
ton's foul was nicely handled by
Charles Nyce and McVicker was
thrown out by Hollingsworth.
Carney threw out Gillen. Kline, who
had taken Spies' place to rest the
veteran, only gave Connaughton a pop
up. Hollingsworth hit a high one to
Meeks, and the ninth opened with
Pickett's easy grounder to Holly.
Meeks gave Kline a foul, a pretty
catch, too, right close to the grand
stand. Gear struck out. The ball
split Kline's finger, but he picked it
up— the ball, not the finger— and threw
to first base in time to blank the Cow
boys in the final inning.

TWO GAMES TODAY.
Local Fans May Put in tlie Satire
The Kansas City players will make their
last appearance on the local diamond this
afternoon, playing two games, if the weather
permits, beginning at 2 o'clock. In this way
the two games which the Saints were to play
at Kansas City Sept. 20 and 21 will be
disposed of. Phyle and Mullane will pitch for

Ihe Western league seison ends a week from
today. No games played after Sept. 21 can
count in the record. St. Paul has ten yet
to play, but there will be no opportunity to
play the three postponed at Detroit. The
l 0( als will play two each with Kansas City
and Minneapolis here and close with three at
Milwaukee, completing the season with the
game in the latter town on Sunday.

Milwaukee will play a game with Minne

A change is made in the percentage table
this morning. Detroit and Kansas City have
played 21 games. Detroit protested a game
which Friend pitched on the ground of his
still being bound to the National. Kansas
City, while not admitting the protest, con
sented to play an extra game under prot?st,
and as it won both, it makes no difference
whether the protest is granted or not. The
second game should not have been counted
in the tables until the protest was passed

" NEW YORK, Sept. 13.— The Inter
national cricket match, which opened
the series to be played between the*
English players who have arrived here
and the New York and Philadelphia
experts, attracted a fair sized crowd
of enthusiasts to the grounds of the
Staten Island Cricket club at Livings
ton today. The Americans, who tackled
the Britons in the initial game, were
chosen from the clubs which make up
the Metropolitan Cricket league. This
forenoon there were light showers, but
during the afternoon fine weather pre
vailed. The Englishmen won the toss
and decided to go to bat first. Capt,
Warner and H. B. Chinnery began
batting against the bowling of Cobb
and Clarke. The total of the first inn
inj-*- was ID6, including: 18 extras.
The New Yorkers then went to bat,
but did not make as good a showing
as was expected, only three of them,
Hurditch, Clarke and Cobb getting into
double figures. Four others did noth
ing, and the remainder very little more.
Stumps were drawn at 5:20 o'clock, the
score 33 for two wickets. Play will be
resumed at 11 o'clock tomorrow.
Findley Douglas Winner ot the Golf
GENEVA, 111., Sept. 13.— The first
day of the national gclf tournament
was practically only- a preliminary
practice for the amateur championship
games, which begin tomorrow. At the
same time, great ' interest was taken
in the event of the day, the contest
for the Chicago cup presented by Mr.
Armour. This trophy is for the best
record over the eighteen holes of the
Chicago golf links; atd began at 9:30.
The best score for this course is held
by Mr. McDonald. No great surprise
was felt, however, "when Findley Doug
las, of the Fairfield County Golf club,
was announced as winner. Douglas
played the steadiest game. His score
was 41 out and 40 in, a total of BL.
The heat was terrific and the course
good. James A. Tyng, of the Morris
County Golf club, went around in S3,
Torgan in 87 and W. G. Stewart in 88.
The preliminary round of the ama

BUFFALO, N. V.. Sept. 13.— Frank Erne,
of this city, knocked out Harry Becker, of
Bayonne, N. J., in the fifth round before a
packed house at the Olympic club tonight.
The betting at the ring side was 100 to 70
on Erne, and later the odds rose to 2 to 1.
The battle was fast and scientific. In the
opening round Erne landed almost at will,
but with little damage to his opponent. In
the three following rounds Becker forced the
fighting, and had the best of it. Erne start
ed the fifth round in lively fashion, and
landed right and left swings with terrific
force on head and body. A fierce right
hander sent Becker reeling, and Frank fol
lowed it up with short-arm jolts that soon
had Becker groggy. The referee, to avoid a
knock-out, declared Erne the victor.

WEDDING ON THE WHALEBACK
MAKES A ROMANTIC FINISH TO A
STORMS IN SOUTH DAKOTA.
Cyclone Scare at Aberdeen— General
News of the North
DULUTH, Minn., Sept. 13.— A mar
riage unequaled for romance took place
here tonight. It was a whaleback wed
ding, the first of its kind, and in view
of the unusual circumstances the event
could hardly In all respects have^-been
otherwise in any way so appropriately
The ceremony was performed and the
wedding supper was served in the bril
liantly illuminated and handsomely
decorated 250-foot cabin of the huge
whaleback steamer Christopher Colum
bus, at anchor in the Duluth harbor. A
string orchestra added to the enjoy
ableness of the occasion. The Colum
bus arrived this evening from Chicago
on her final trip of the season, and
upon this fact largely hinged the rea
sons for the wedding taking place on
The contracting parties were the sec
ond engineer of the big steel vessel, Mr.
George Dingman, and the bride was
the handsome young cashier of the
whaleback, Mrs. Laura E. Grim.
Rev. T. H. Cleland, D. D., pastor
of the First Presbyterian church,
one of the leadnig clergymen
of Duluth, officiated. Some thir
ty-five guests were present, in
cluding the officers of the Columbus
and a number of ladies and gentlemen
who were passengers from Chicago and
who remained aboard for the occasion.
It was not until this afternoon when
nearing Duluth, while the whaleback
was steaming past the Apostle islands
that Capt. Robert Smith or any one
aboard learned that a wedding between
two of his assistants had weeks before
been settled upon whenever the ves
sel touched her home port. The groom
and bride are a most sensible and esti
mable couple, and the quietest, simplest
marriage possible, with their immedi
ate relatives present and a few close
friends, was the plan in view. But
Capt. Robert Smith, the commander of
the whaleback, is the personification of
chivalry, and he gently but firmly in
sisted that the home of the couple for
months past, the whaleback itself, was
the proper place for the ceremony to
be celebrated and that it was his of
ficial privilege to give the bride away.
The passengers on the whaleback, all
of whom had grown to like the beauti
ful cashier and the manly-looking >.n
--gineer, insisted unanimously that Capt.
Smith was right, and finaly under the
persuasion of Capt. Smith's sister. Miss
M. Smith, of Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.,
who was among the passengers, the
wedding couple concurred.
It was a happy party indeed tha'
gathered in the great cabin of the
whaleback and caw the couple stand
ing together under the stars and stripes
draped acro?s the stately apartment,
%vhile the minister pronounced the two
man and wife. Congratulations were
showered upon the pair by all present,
and a very merry wedding supper fol
lowed, the table being set as a long I
extension down the magnificent vista of
the cabin. At the other end of the
cabin were the presents, chiefly silver- |
ware and beautiful linens obtained in
the short time available.

RnidM on the Queen Charlotte
OTTAWA, Ont., Sept. 13.— A com
plaint comes from the Pacific ocean of
raids made by American buccaneers
upon the Queen Charlotte islands.
Using their own harbors for ref ugi ,
it is alleged they have been making
raids upon the territories and fishing
grounds of British subjects. It is said
they have pillaged settlements while
the people were away. In one place a
whole crop of potatoes was dug up.
Smuggling also is alleged to be car
ried on with impunity, and quantities
of American goods are being taken
in without yapment of duty. Th-jy
have gone so far as to kill cattle
owned by Canadians, and dispose of
them in the markets of Juneau and
Sitka. The complaint goes on to say
that the marauders are well armed
and have a number of villages com
pletely in their hands. The Canadian
customs department is robbed of
thousands of dollars every year. It
is urged that a cruiser be dispatched
there to straighten matters out and
restore order. An investigation of the
case is to be ordered by the Dominion

WASHINGTON. Sept. 13. — Consul
General Lee had an extended confer
ence at the state department today
with Secretary Sherman and Judge
Day, assistant secretary of state, dur
ing which the entire range of Cuban
affairs was gone over. The consul gen
eral submitted no written report, but
gave a verbal statement as to numer
ous questions which have arisen in
connection with the insurrection. Sec
retary Sherman desired that Gen. Lee
should see the president, who was ex
pected back tonight. It was felt, how
ever, that the president would be
fatigued with his journey, and would
not care to take up Cuban affairs im
mediately after his arrival. For this
reason it was arranged that Gen. Lee
should proceed to Virginia and visit
his family, holding himself in readiness
to return on a telegraphic order when
it was convenient for the president to
see him. He left later in the day for
the Jntermount hotel, at Covington.
Va., where Mrs. Lee Is spending the
All parties concerned declined posi
tively to say anything as to today's
conference, but it is learned that It
developed no new or startling phases
of the Cuban situation, but was rather
in the nature of a general review of
the entire situation up to the time Gen.
Lee left the island. He was able to
present this much better through a
personal talk than through the medium
Of the official communications which
ho has sent from time to time. The
subjects covered included the condi
tion of the Competitor prisoners and
other Americans held in Spanish pris
ons, the disposition of the fund of $50,
--000 appropriated by congress for the
relief of Americans destitute on the
island, the present status of the rebel
lion, recent hostilities, etc.
One of Gen. Lee's staff visited the
Competitor prisoners the Saturday be
fore the consul general left for Wash
ington and reported that Ona Melton
and the others were in fairly good con
dition. Their case is at present "suh
judice" a legal condition which pre
vents anything being done until fur
ther advance is made.
The prevailing sickness on the island
was touched upon. Both yellow fever
and small pox are carrying off many
victims at Havana, and through th_
interior, and the week before Gen. Lee
left there were thirty deaths from yel
low fever at Havana, of which far
the greater number was among the
As to whether Gen. Lee will return
to Cuba, no definite information could
be secured. It is said to depend much
on circumstances which have not yet
developed, and it is probable that
neither the consul general nor the of
ficials are as yet certain concerning
his future movements. As the cabinet
meeting will be held tomorrow, it Is
thought probable that Gen. Lee will
not be called to Washington until
Wednesday or later.
President MeKinley returned to
Washington this afternoon. The spe
cial train which carried the party con
sisted of President Cowen's private
car Baltimore the Pullman chair
car Abigail, which served as a re
ception car at the various stopping
places en. route, and a combination
car In the lead. Attorney General Mc-
Kenna accompanied the president and
Mrs. MeKinley, and the only other"
members of the party were Miss Ends
ley and Executive Clerk George B
Cortelyou. There was no schedule ar
ranged for the train between here an£
Somerset, and it was put through at
an easy gait on orders from the train
dispatcher of each division. The pres.
ident had expressed a wish to arrive
in Washington at 5:45, and was land
