THE UPPEll DES M01MB: ALGON4, IOWA WEDNESDAY JtlNH 2JU1809, NEWS AND NotES OP THE GAME. Gray'* Great Pitching Feat Ha» Made Hltn at Least Temporarily famous— Was Often Passed Up—Orth of the Phillies—Rowdy Ball Must Stop. A Great Pitching Ftat. Gray, the Buffalo pitcher, who accomplished the notable feat of shutting out the Indianapolis team at Buffalo recently, without a base hit or a run, was, In the opinion of that expert critic and shrewd observer, H. Q. Merrill, of Wllkes-Barre, by a long odds, the premier pitcher of the Eastern league last season. His victories excelled the record made by any other twlrlers. The Brooklyn club drafted him from Buffalo last winter, but for :some unknown reason the claim on him was recalled. Mr. Merrill la also authority for the statement that Gray has always ranked In the lead among Pat Powers' pitchers, first being prominent when at Toronto. He was drafted by Ed Hanlon In the spring of 1896, on his practice work for the Orioles at Lynchburg and Richmond. Mr. Hanlon finally, sold Gray to Buffalo and his work has each season attracted much attention. The major league ..managers often overlook, first-class talent In their efforts to strengthen their teams. Phillips' records with the Reds shows that Manager Ewing erred in not adding that pitcher to the Cincinnati staff before this season and the opinion is general that Phillips was kept on the Indianapolis team for two . years to discipline him for having pre•. sumed to incur the displeasure of the Cincinnati manager. Stewart, the second baseman of the Indianapolis club, could have advanced in his profession via Louisville, had he not been held in reserve to replace McPhee. Tom Daiy, who Is doing excellent work for Brooklyn,, was passed up by several clubs In quest of a second baseman, and these are not the only cases that suggest themselves. McGlnnlty, the clever pitcher of the Baltimore club, has been with minor league teams of low classification and Independent clubs for at least ten seasons, and his success this season is a source of surprise to those with and against whom he has played. -Ex.

The giants are scheduled for a number of games In the west on Sunday, but after thig season the western magnates say they will be cut out of these plums, too." A Beat Indian Team. The Nebraska Indian baseball team, Which is composed entirely of genuine red men, will begin their third annual tour on May 9. The Indians play their first game in Lincoln, Neb., with the University of Nebraska, and then tour east. They already have games booked through Iowa, Illinois and Indiana. They are anxious to secure games through Ohio and Ptonsylvanla for August and,September. The manager Is Guy W. Green. Orth of the Phlllleft. Al Orth, one o£ the pitchers of the Philadelphia club, claims Sedalla, Mo., as his place of birth. He first attracted attention as a ball player while with the Lynchburg club of the Virginia League In 1895, during which season he was purchased by the Phillies. Orth won eight and lost only one game during his first season in the NOTES Of MAtfERS OP INTERST TO DEVOTEES OP THE BICYCLE. ttow Miller Won—Italian Dark Horse His Most Dangerous Bl*nl—Flshe* Ban Second—Some Recent Inventions and Improvements.

The attendance was so large that it overflowed the field and it was necessary to establish ground rules. The trouble occurred over the -right of base runners to make two or more bases on an overthrow into the 1 crowd. Wilmot's course not only de. prlved his team of all chance to win • the game, but caused a riot. Such dis- ^graceful affairs will bring the game into .disrepute with the better class of patrons and will provide the law-and- order element with a splendid argument for putting a stop to Sunday games.

His showing In 1897 was less satisfactory, as he was charged with 18 losing and credited with only 15 winning games. Last season he officiated in 27 games, of which he won 15 and lost 12. He made a good start this spring, but an attack of malarial fever soon after the championship race began unfitted him for work. He is ready for duty again. A Call-Down at,.Home. Hanlon's advice to his players to show that they are In the game by objecting to unfair decisions on the part of the umpire, is all right in its way, and will receive the support of the home cranks, provided it is not overdone. It is human nature to stick up for one's rights, particularly on the ball field, but it can be overdone, and that Is just what has happened. The Bonbolz Bace. Details of the 100-hour race which was run In Roubaix, and won by Miller state that from the start Miller was the favorite, while Frederick and Nawn were picked for second and third choice. There were sixteen starters, of whom ten finished. In the eighth hour Nawn touched Frederick in passing and fell, bringing down Miller and Beau- gendre, and all lost a lap. Miller rode steadily and paid little attention to those who sprinted In the first part of the race, gaining laps on him. At the end of the first twenty-four hours Fisher crossed the tape first with a lead of a yard over Miller, the two having covered about 416 miles, while Miller was three lengths behind. Immediately thereafter Fisher retired to sleep, Muller taking the lead with Miller In second position. Muller, a practically unknown Italian, dismounted for the first time at the end of twenty-eight hours. The fight ; ln the race was be- ween Miller and Muller, who proved a most dangerous rival for thn American, filler tried his best to sprint away rom the Italian at almost every lap, ut found It impossible to surprise him. •tiller tried every device to shake Muler and force him to take the lead, but he Italian refused to set any of the jace. At the end of forty-eight hours he had covered 891 miles while Miller was twenty miles behind. The follow- ng day Muller's tire punctured and he also lost a couple of laps through Indisposition, so that at the end of the evenly-second hour Muller had 1,104 miles to his credit and Miller about ,092. Miller then began a succession of sprints every second or third lap. The-Itallan followed easily for a while >ut these tactics proved too much for ilm, and In the end Miller succeeded n gaining a lap on him. In the seventy-eighth hour Muller touched another rider in passing and fell, injuring ils head so that he had to be removed to his tent, where he fell Into a long sleep. From then on Miller had an easy task, his nearest competitors be- ng several miles behind. It seems almost certain he would have won even had Muller not beeri so suddenly put out of,the race, as the Italian had be;un to show signs of extreme fatigue Before the accident. Miller rode his best in the last part of the race, and finished first with a score of 1,403 miles, 988 yards. Fisher was second, just thirty miles behind; Chevalier third, Nawn fourth and Muller fifth. Frederick quit the race before the finish. standard distances, with a minimum first prize limit of. $200. In these races the points count ten, six, four and two, or two-fold, in the grand total Instead of ten-fold as In the L. A. W. plan. A tandem championship Is also provided for and middle distance paced championships will be subject to the direction of the board of control, contestants being restricted to the same kind of pace, either motor or'human. The amateur championships are to be determined at a single meet. While there are national championships at each standard distance, the national all-around championship will be determined by the aggregate of points, on the basis of five, three, two and one In each individual championship. Tandem and middle distance championships are also provided for, as well as state, county and city championships.

Con Brouthers has dispensed of his business at Marion, Ohio, and will return to baseball a player-manager. General Hi Hi Dixwell, the Boston rooter, has not been at a game this season. Has the general gone back on baseball? The manager of the Fitchburg team is Connie Murphy, formerly catcher of the New Bedfords of the New England league. Stalllngs boasted before the season opened that ha would purloin fifty bases before the last game was played. He is getting there. When it comes to handling the delivery of young pitchers there is no catcher in the same class with Robinson of Baltimore. Hickey's fielding has been brilliant this .spr-ing. He is also fast on the bases. This goes a long way to make up for his weak hitting. "What Sherman said about war will apply to baseball," mused Walter Arlington Latham after the second one- run defeat at New York. The New York Press says Daly and Gleason cover more ground than any pair of second basemen in the National league. There are others. "Pebble Jack'" Glasscock is as frisky a player and covers first bag as well as many players twenty years his junior. He still has his batting eye.—Exchange. Magnate Franklin is congratulating league this season, because the gate receipts are so much larger than the Eastern league boasts of. The Phillies are fortuitate in having two catchers—McFarland and Douglass —who are not only first-class backstops, but who can also bat and run. Harry Wolverton and 'Gene Demont- reville keep the ball high, and Captain Everett's great reaching act has won for him the new title of Step-ladder Bill. "Have you ever ci'-served," remarked the veteran sportsman, Michael B Scanlan, "that the umpire is never advanced as an excuse for winning by the winners?" Cutting Mr, Frtjcdmau. According to the Sun of New York, the western magnates have at " > twist on President Freedmau. The tale IP runs to this effect: f" "According to some Western league ', magnates Mr. Freedman had made all arrangements with Fred Mersheimer, the owner of Weehawken park, to play Sunday games this season. But when 14r, Freedman entered into negoWa Questions of Duty. « "I intended," said the German em peror, "to be guided in this matter en tirely' by my duty."

Good Racing In Italy. The best race meet given In Italy -since the-opening of.-the s season, took place at Turin, May 7, with Banker, Jacquelln, Nossam, Meyers and many other leading European riders competing. Momo won the 2,000-meter scratch race by a length from Nossam, with Banker third by Inches. In the second international race Meyers, the Dutchman, won from Del, the Russian, and Jacquelln, the Frenchman, by several lengths. At the second day's meet the principal event was the match between Jacquelin and Slngrossl, which the latter won by taking the second and third heats. Clmtnlefts Tivndcm Device.

The latter was a local affection caused by Infection, where the cuticle over the hips was abraded by falling from his wheel. This abrasion is common to wheelmen and is known among them as the "cyclists' trade mark."

Walters In llorlln. The annual golden wheel 100-kilometer paced race was run In Berlin May 7. Walters, Bouhours, Lesna, Robl, Kanamuelier, Hartwig and Koecher were the competitors. A bad start was made, and in the second lap Lesna had a fall and after remounting had to ride many laps without pacemakers. Walters had the best pacing and lapped the others as often as he made the effort. He won by six laps over Bouhours, nineteen over Robl and twenty-three over Lesna.

A IIon'H Strange Fancy. A rather unique affection of fowls for animals Is to be seen in Sioux City. A. W. Giehm of this city has a number of fancy breeds of poultry.snys the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. He recently purchased a setting of eggs and placed them under an old hen in his hen house. In the same hen house lives a bull terrier. A few days ago the animal gave birth to eight white puppies, and they were placed in a box in the corner. To the astonishment ol the owner his hen left her thirteen eggs and placed herself in full'charge of the puppies. For three days she has been cuddling the tiny pups under her wings, and will allow no one to take them away without a great fight. The mother of the pups is on friendly relations with the hen, It would seem, for she lies on the floor and seems to have no objection to the foster mother. In the meantime the expensive setting of eggs spoiled. Marinette, O.—The saw mill of the Hamilton & -Merryman Company was destroyed by fire. The mill was valued at $80,000; Insurance, $40,000. I. K.

Championship Itules. lu view of there having been as yet no definite announcement of the L. A. W. national circuit and the probability of the Grand circuit proposed by the N. C. A. being put through having been increased by the considerable number of meets at prominent tracks, for which entry blanks are already out, the rules just promulgated by the N. C. A. for the national championships are worthy of attention. The N. C. A. championship rules provide for a Grand circuit beginning after July 4 and ending before October 1, barring national .holidays. At these Grand circuit meets national championships at one-quarter, one-third, one-half, one, two and five miles may be run.^ with minimum first prizes of $150, the points counting five, three, two and one points for the first four men of the five in the final heat. The L. A. W. rules give points to each of the five In the final. ' On the Grand circuit there are also separate national championships at the Notable Duels. An extraordinary duel has been fought by two Italian naval officers on the outskirts of Rome. The weapons were swords, in the use of which both combatants were adepts. The combat lasted fifty minutes, and at the fourth raise en garde the blades were so hacked and damaged that the seconds found it necessary to call a halt in order to change the battered swords for new ones. Finally, when both adversaries were ready to drop from the exhaustion of an hour's fighting, Lieut. R. fortunately received a cut in the forearm which put an end to this extraordinary encounter.
