They fell helpless victims, however. Tbedelivery of Marsh, their pitcher, was readily sized up, while that of Cargo's, of the home team, proved a great puzzle to tbeio, since thev only scorea two tilts, llagau, late of Dunkirk, played with the home club, and did splendid work.

Special, XjfECKER, KELTY AND Wilson, who played in the outfield for the Alle gbenys in to-day's game with the New Yorks, had plenty of exercise this afternoon. The local men had their batting clothes on, and the way they lined the ball out was a caution to aspiring young twlrlers. Bowman was very sad after the game The score IS to 1 tells the tale. Welch pitched mag nificently, while Bowman could do nothing with the Harlem sluggers. Allegheny's only run was scored in the third inning, when Bow man got his base on balls, stole second, was advanced to third on Kelty'sbunt and managed to get home by a very narrow margin on Miller's sacrifice: llornung making a poor throw to the plate. The visitors bad a good chance to score in the filth but poor coaching knocked them out. Wit one man out Kelty hit a single to left and Miller, who iollowed, lined a beanty along tho left foul line. It should have been good for three bases at least but Kelty was coached to stop at third and Miller, who was tearing along behtna him naa to sprint to get back to second. Decker was unequal to the emergency ana strucs out. Welch would not let La Eoque bit the ball, sending him to first on balls, filling the bases. It all depended on Boats then. He hit a little one to short, forcing out La Koque at second. After that Welch was invincible. The score tells the story of the slaughter. MtW lOHK.

McDermott pulled out his watch, and when five minutes had elapsed gave the game to Brooklyn, 9 to 0. The Brooklyna wanted the Clncinna-tis to play a postponed game, but they refused.

All the girl's clothes were levied on to satlty a claim of the home club for Its share of the receipts, ana the young women had to appear in society In their uniforms. Much of Doran's effectiveness Is due to his terrific speed, which comes from a pair of arms which are as finely developed as one could wish. He can thank his early work as an iron mouldtr In Athens, Pa., for his fine muscles. Bhines may bo enrolled among the col lege players, for he spent soma time as a student at Bucknoll unlvorlty, in Pennsylvania. One of his hobbles is the gun. and he Is as good a marksman with the rifle as ne is a pitcher with the ball. Columbus had lines out for "Shorty" Fuller, of tit.

Anson has but 11 men with him this trin. leaving Stenzel, Andrews, Sullivan and Hutchinson at homo. He expects to strengthen his team greatly before he returns to Chicago. A strong pitcher is what he most needs and is gunning for. Buo IIollidat has been of greater sor vice to the Cincinnati club this year than he was last season. It is true he has not done quite as good stick work, but in field lng, sacrifice hitting and base running ho nas iar surpassed ins record or a year ago.

Eighteen Innings were played before victory perched on the Catasauquas' banner by 6 to 6. IN the game between the Pott and Timtt clubs at Castle Shannon yesterday, the latter were defeated by the score of 27 to 6. Barr's pitching and Boyer's catching for the Pout boys were tho features.

But then it could hardly be otherwise, as the east has the greatest centers of population, the most leisure and the most wealth to speud for amusement and recreation.

It was a magnificent day for racing. During the whole afternoon a cool ocean breeze blew through the grand stand and those who brought fans with them and wore sum' mer clothes had to hustle around to keep the blood moving in their veins. The track was on the whole in capital shape although it was quite dusty. The card included the July stakes for two year .olds, the Monmouth cup and the Llberon stakes, besides nve oiner races. The Monmouth cup was a walk over for the Haggin stable, but most of the other events furnished contests that were worth witnessing. The first race was at six furlongs, and Eon, on the strength of his recent defeat of lieraldine, was made an even money favorite.

Description of How the Game Is Played In the Shortest Possible Time. Here is a game which, although it has been played for years in some parts of England, is practically a new thing in this country. It has beem played spasmodically by American 15-ball pool players at times, but it is little known, nevertheless, to nine-tenths of the devotees of that popular sport. The most curious thing about the game is that, in spite of its having been played for so long across the water and to a far less extent in this country, no one teems to know its name. At the rooms where the game is having quite a run just now, it goes by the name of English billiards, but as it isn't billiards at all, that is evidently a misnomer. A number of the pool experts to whom the game is familiar said yesterday that it was French pool, but, so far as known, the game is not played in France any more than it is in this country. Perhaps some of the Press' reader! may be able to suggest a name which will fit the game. Here is a description of the way it is played: The balls are placed on an ordinary six-pocket pool table, as shown in th following diagram: :a 4 B',o: 8 SPORT8 AT Madstone. Eon would have made a much better showing had bis head stall not slipped. The J uiy stakes lor Z-y ear-olds brought out a field of six, of which Kockon was the favorite and Bolero second choice. Beckon ran a good race, but Bolero, the second choice, won, while Nellie Bly, at 20 to one, in the betting, ran a good race and got second money. The Monmouth eup was robbed of all interest because nothing appeared to measure strides witn Salvator. Mr. riaggin'snanasome cnest, nut simply galloped over the course and secured the money. The fourth race was a handicap at a mile and a quarter and was the best betting race of the day. Castaway, Eurus and Badge were all backed heavily in the order named while Stockton and Philosophy both had unDort. It was a grand race and the finish was the best of the day. Hamil ton. by stmerior riding, managed to land old Eurus a winner by ashort head That the victory was a popular one was proved by the loud cheering that ne re ceived.

Favonla and Salvator Have a Common Ancestry. The game trotting mare Favonia (2:15) by Wedgewood, that has won many a grand circuit race, and Salvator, the king of American thoroughbreds, are similarly bred on the maternal side. The thoronghbred mare Lightsome, by Glen- coe, when bred to Lexington, produced Salina, the dam of Salvator, and when bred to the trotting stallion Alexander's Abdallab, the anion produced Fadette, the dam of Favonia. Lightsome is out of Levity by imp. lrustee, ana is also the second dam of Luke Black burn, one of the famous runners in bis day, and the sire oi rrocior nnoit ana others. It is a singular coincidence that Lighsome when bred to both thorough bred and trotting stallions should pro duce the dams of sorb game and fast per- iormera on the trotunz tod runmna Purse for a Meetluc Between War ren and the St. Paul Kid. Press News Association. Buffalo, N. Y., July 12. The Buffalo Athletic club has resolved to offer a purse if a fight is arranged between the St. Paul Kid and Tommy Warren to come off July SO, and subject to the following conditions: If the Kid wins they will offer a purse for a bout between him and Dixon, wno nas just, aeieaiea waiiace; u Warren wins tuey win mace tne same offer for a light between him and Ike Weir, the Belfast spider. It will be seen from tha above that 13 of the object balls are placed in twos and "frozen" together directly in front of the pockets and as near as possible to them without tumbling In. The other three object balls are frozen together in the center of the table so that the two end balls shall point directly toward the Bide pockets. The white, or cue, ball is placed anywhere within a radius of six inches from the unoer' t and back of the string. (See ' .ram A A). A half circle may br talked on the table (a), ana the ae ball must be rjlaved t : . l. i jl . . t . . . iruux wumu hi at me Degmning oi toa game. The importance of the first shoB in the game makes this rule imperative.! balls in the least number of shots. Each time that the rjlayer's cue touches the White ball a shot is counted mrainiit, him no matter whether he hits or misses. 11 the white ball goes into a Docket an ex tra shot is counted against the player, and he must play from the half circle (B) again, but he retains any object ball or balls which he may have pocketed at the time ho made the scratch. In other words, no obiect ball is ever renlaceri on the table after being pocketed, and the penalty for making a scratch is to have an extra shot counted against the player-er. As soon as the first player succeeds in clearing the table of all the object balls he marks the number of shots ha has made and the balls are replaced on the table for the second player. The one who pockets all the balls in the fewest (J h n r u wina I ha crama A nn mimK.. persons may play in a game. I he game requires more skill to nlav well than pool. It is not only necessary to pocket the object ball aimed at, but the player must also be able to carom and play around-the-table shots with exactness, for the more balls he can put in in one shot the greater nis chances of winninar the game. The writer has seen the 15 balls pocketed in seven shots, or an average of over two balls at each shot, and possibly the feat could be accomplished in a still smaller number of plays, but the ordinary good player is lucky if he clears the table in less than 15 shots. An expert pool player will pocket the 15 balls in from 12 to 11 shots on an average. To clear the table in 10 shots requires remarkably fine moving and some good luck; to require 16 shots to accomplish the same object is noor playing. As the slightest touch on any of the object balls as they are first placed is sufficient to pocket one or two of them, the aim of the player should be to start off by hitting as many balls as possible at the first shot. The best way to ac complish this is shown by the following diagram: YOUNG MAN1IART DEAD. The Grlpman Whose Car Injured Him Held for a Hearing:. Harry Manhart, the 13-year-old boy who was run over and so badly mangled by a Penn avenue cable car near Forty- fourth street yesterday morning, died from his terrible injuries at the West Penn hospital yesterday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock. Shortly after reach ing the hospital he lapsed into a semi-conscious condition, from which he never revived. The physicians in attendance state that in addition to his external injuries, which were unusually severe, he evidently sustainea equally serious internal injuries. William Morrison, the grlpman ot car No. 221, which ran over the hoy, was arrested last evening ana tanen De- fore Magistrate Hyndman, who held him for a hearing on Monday in fl.000 bail, which was furnished by Supt. Ruga. The coroner was notified will hold an inauest on Monday. ggThe accidentiresulting in the death of young iuannast, ana me msuuer in which he was left lying on the street by the gnpman and conductor oi tne car, which ran over nim, nas created a general and wides oread feeling of indigna tion among the residents of the vicinity where the accident occurrea. ANXIOUS FOR THEIR MONEY. Census Enumerators Draw Sight Drafts on feupt. Porter. One of the census enumerators in Law- renceville said to a Pbess reporter last evening that he had got tired of wait ing on bis pay from the government and bad drawn a sight draft, through ' one of the Lawrenceville banks, on General Supervisor Porter for the full amount of the sum due him for services. He said: 'I know of three or four other enumerators who have done the same thing. A meeting of all of the enumerators ot the t nteenth, Sixteenth, Seventeenth and Eighteenth wards has been cai.ed for next Monday evening at the Fortieth street school. where we will meet and devise ways and means to hasten pay r.ay. It may ba that we may arrange to have oar vouch ers discounted at one of the banks in JLawrencevilie. I cannot tell what course we may pursue, but we will bold oar meeting at the time and place specified all the same." Excursion to Atlantic City, Next Thursday, July 17, via the B. & O. R. R. For sleeping and parlor car accommodations call at the ticket office, corner FiOh avenue and Wood street, Pitta bnrtr; Pa. V 8 i r Such a shot as that will oertainlf pocket four balls, and it may very possibly get rid of five or six. Seven balls at the first shot is not impossible, but it is extremely rare. The shot which is illustrated above can be made by an expert player about once in four or flv times. More often he can only get as far as the third ball. More often still he must be content with the simple carom from the right hand side to the corner, as shown in the first half of the illustrated shot. The three balls in the center oi the table are rarely disturbed by a good player until all or nearly all of the other balls have been pocketed, and the side pockets at least are clear of obstrnction. Then it is quite possible to pocket two oi the three balls at one shot. That the game is an interesting one il shown by the fact that wherever it has been introduced it has become more and mare popular. It is played a good deal at a number of the clubs now and promises to be all the rage in the near future. The interest in the game is stimulated by the never ceasing atiemDts of tne players to better their own records or to beat those of others. THE SARATOGA RACES. The fixed Events and the Prospects for the Meeting:. Seven stakes, for the foals of 1SS9, to be run at Saratoga in 1S91 and 1S92, are now open, to close Aug. 15. The 1891 events are the Saratoga for 2-year-olds, five fur longs, and the Kentucky for 2-year-olds, three-quarters of a mile. The fixed events for 1892 are the Travers, one mile and a half; ihe Iroquois, one mile and one- sixteenth; the Alabama, one mile and a furlong; the Foxhall, one mile and quarter, ana the Kenner, one mile and three-quarters. The condi tions, drawn by an experienced hand, have given satisfaction heretofore, ana no fault will be fonnd with them now. Saratoga has no superior as a summer resort, and its attractions are so many that its popularity will never wane. It is recuperative spot for horses, and this is a point well worth considering in these days of excessive racing. A declaration is permitted in each stake for a small forfeit, which is another inducement for owners to send in nominations. Charles Wheatley la the secretary. :it.
