St. Paul at Minneapolis. Kansas City at St. Joseph. ; I'■ a Mo aat Omaha. Denver at Colorado Springs. I The final game in the fi:st series be tween St. Paul and Minneapolis, played at Lexington yesterday afternoon, went to the Millers, and with it ■ went the series, for Mr.- Beall's men have tak n two out of three. The game was cne of the worst and one cf the lo gest Brawn-out that has been played this sea son. There were errors galore on both Bides. The only redeeming feature was the fact that first one and then the other 1 ■was in the lead, and it was not a settled fact which would win until the last man [had been called out. There v, as ore other feature, too. It was the umpire. Tills could have well been cut out. Brennen Bpent the greater part of bis time in side talks with the players an.l spectators, an.l doing funny (?) stunts. He was :'.;s > ■wild-as a March hare in call ng balls and j Strikes. It would be well for President i [tiickey to include his umpiies when pro- 1 mulgating rules. regulating ihe hours that i they keep, and certain other th!ngs. Thomas was scheduled to citeh for the Saints, but he lasted only long enougti for Belden. the first Milter up In the first Inning, to get a three-bagger. Cog was (then called in from second base, and Wil son was sent out from behind the plate to replace him, while Holmes came in to catch. The young man from PateTson, W. J., held the Millers in gord cheek un til the fifth inning, and t :en came the fireworks. In the fifth and .'ix;h he was [pounded all over the lot. Rvan persisted in keeping him in the box. however, and lit looked as though this was good judg ment, for in the next two innings 'the Millers failed to do business. Then came itho mistake of Ryan's life. He ca led Knepper In to pitch the ninth inning. .T':e big fellow started in like a whirl wind, but his finish was <iui:k. He struck out the first man up, but flit the next j One. and followed this w'th two wild j pitches. AH this, together wi'h a bad muff by Dillard, sent the winning run j across the plate. And it wa= a relief , to Bee it come in, even though it went j the wrong way. In addition to Dillard, > "Old Reliable" Werd< n also found his ■ ■way into the error column, and Wl'a n ] made two bad errors. Wi'.srn '.a ex uaa'. l 3 i because he was playing out of his posi tion. •-P.il" Is one of the best catchers j In the business, but he can't play sec- j ond base. The only wonder 1-= that he ; got away with the position as well fs he did, for he sot in with a couple of fast ; ■ fielding plays. S worm si ■!: was on tre slab for the Millers, and, in spite of rh.» rsct that the ! Saints k'-pt piling runs up aga'n t him, and occasionally walloping his benders , out for two and three-baggers, Mr. Beall | kept him in the box. It took nerre. but , he won out. The Millers had a very , much worse day in the field than c"id the | Saints, but they had the lens .■ nd of the ■ stick work, and this won them the game. , To give an account of how a' 1 "the runs . ■were* made would take a week. The fact j that the Millers hit fifteen times for a j total of twenty-four bases, while the i Saints hi: but ten times for a total ct j sixteen bases tell the tale But for t'e errors of Beall's men, it w< ul' hiv-^ b«"n | a walkaway for the nun fr m up t: c ; river. .

He has I made three hits for a total of seven bases and has crossed the plate four times in tho last two games. Unless . Cogan can do better -we will ; have to take back what we said of him I on lii< first appearance in a St. Paul uai- ' j form. The Millers had no trouble at all : in finding him yesterday, and their hits came when hits meant runs and lots of them. Srerinen's work yesterday was rank. There should be a rule that the 12 o'clock closing hour applies to umpires as well as : brili players and better all around work ] would no doubt result. The fans yester -1 day wort.' also made acquainted with the ' fact for the first time that comedian (?) umulres are employed in the Western. Holly is playing the short field in great chape and is also getting in a few hard : rnps on the ball. He landed on the leath j c-r yesterday for two clean hits and bcth j carrfea him half-way round the circuit. ! The short field is Holly's regular position, ', while Muggins is a 'vet' at second. When Husglns gets back in the same it might be :i wise scheme to try this order until Crooks' linger gets well. .Tnck Glasscock, recently suspended for the season by the Minneapolis manage ment, has been offered a place on-the I>os Moines team, and it is probable that the old man will cast his fortunes with the. lowa team if he can induce B«all to reinstate him. Under the league rules he cannot play with a professional team ca tering, tr. the National until this is done. EASY FOR KANSAS CITY. KANSAS CITY. Mo..

'«[ ii i m LORD GEORGE HAMILTON REPLIES TO SIR ALFRED UK K>IA.\VS STRICTURES JOHN BULL NO LONGER LEADS American Locomotive* and Steel Bridge* Have Amply Demon- Ht rated Their Superiority on Indian Railroad*. LONDON, May 3L—l*rd Oeorgre Ham ilton, tlic Indian secretarj", who was not present in th-. ; house of commons when Sfr Alfred Hickman rronservntive), May X, attackeiJ Amr rlran-built loeom.: and bridiros. has replied in a .letter to Sir Alfred Hickrnan. In part it is as fol lows: "No practical engineer, who has visited American workshlps and inspected their methods of production and manufacture wojild for a mon-ent indorse your as sumptions. Their competition is danger ous because they are yearly Improving their products both In quality and price It always has been the pracliw of the board of management of the Indian rail ways to she preference in all thtir con tracts to British manufacturers and that policy has so far prevailed that up to the great recent engineering strike no order lor a railway locomotive wu ever - outside of Groat Biftain. Since ttten, owing to tha British workshops being blocked with w*k. certain of the Imii_i railway boardr: found It necessary, as locomotives could not be obtained here, to place a few limited orders in America. I am ready to give all the available re ports concerning working, consumption or fuel and load-drawing pow^r of th^s? locomotives. The earlier reports wore un favorable, but when their working was better understood and .alterations were made to suit the local work a remarkabl •_■ improvement was noticeable, so much, so that one company wishes to obtain more nigines of similar construction. That American locomotives obtained a foot ing In Tndia was due to t>.e strike I have referred to. Bit if, as I hope, -British locomotives are in thfl future to regain their monopoly in that vast system of railways, British engine- rs must profit by th« hints ar.d suggestions these reports EUII.D BEST BRIDGES. Concerning _ the \ Goktelk viaduct in Burmah, Lord George Hamilton says the order was placed with a Philadelphia company because no British firms had anything like the same experience in this claps of construction. The Americans bid a low<?r price and quicker time than ether competitors. The charge made by the late supervisor of the construction -it the viaduct that the riveting was de fective was in no way supported by a searching inspection. "The Bnrmah railroad board," he adds, "composed of the most competent rail way experts, are satisfied that the bridge is sound and reliable." Lord George Hamilton also says that if ho seems to combat Sir Alfred Hlcfc. man's contention It is not because he does not heartily appreciate his object! They both wish to assist in maintaining tire supremacy of British engineers and workshops against foreign contractors. "You seem to (think," he continues, "that orders have only gone abroad be cause those who gave them did net understand their business. T wish it were ro. The competition we have to face Is founded on something much mom form'da hie and more substantial. Chem ical research, ihf consolidation of capl i. 1. thorough technical education and im proved Industrial organization have made in recent years a greater advance !n America than here. It is with the product of these combinations and not with the assumed stupidity of, the Indian officials 'that the British engineer has to contend. So far .ih I am concerned, I can undertake that preference, unless the difference in prie*. quality and delivery is very substantial, will always be given to British firms. May I not ask you, as a leading member of the great steel in dustry of this country, to co-operate with me t>y Impressing on your associates the necessity of meeting competition in the future, so as to Insure that price an\ lime of delivery will be on the side ot British production?" 5 fi'tnnri Mannfaotareri or tn fi.n>n ! iniirj Paran ;i».- T --1 \ And Dealwli .m VJiyUU. .
