Below we 'give the present standing
of the League clubs for the champion
ship of their respective Leagues. In
the old League the Chicago club has
made rapid strides to the front during
the past ten days, standing very little
behind Providenco and Cleveland, who
were supposed to be sure for tbe cham
in tne western Association ciuos,
the Athletics are first, the St. Louis
second, and the Cincinnati third.
The season being well over, these
leegues will be noticed with Interest by
the lovers of base ball.
THE BASE BALL ItECORD.
The Bostons and BufTalos have ren
dered the Chicagos great aid in the past
week, they having defeated the Cleve
land and Providence nines four straight
games. Iu the meantime the Windy
City lads have crept slowly to the front
and are now only three games in tne
rear. The record to date is as follows:
Providence 41 M
Cleveland 40 2S
Chicago 3S 24
Boston a at
Buffalo 33 29
Detroit .27 37
Philadelphia 13 63
Total 203 201
The games of the past week have
tended to give the champions a very
decided boom toward ultimate suecess.
The relative positions of the various
nines are somewhat changed, on ac
count of tbe easy victories the Athlet
ics have had over their; eastern adver
saries. The Quaker City chaps a re
