TIio Bono Ball Record of Saturday
The Union Pacific ] are again vic
torious , having defeated the Dubuquen
or. Saturday afternoon by n score of 4
to 1. In the Dubuquos the Union
Pacifies mot the best ball players of
the aoason , and from the start the
game was intensely interesting. There
was the largest attendance at Associa
tion park that there 1ms boon sinca
the Droadnaught game , there being
by actual count eleven hundred and
forty tickets token at the gate , which ,
with the passes to stockholders , etc. ,
swelled the number to over twelve
hundred pooplo. There were 120 car
riages on the grounds ,
The Union Pacifies and the Du
buques have the credit of the quick
est played game on record by any
clubs in the United States , either pro
fessional or non-professional. The
game was played in the remarkable
time of an hour and twenty-five min
utes This was largely duo to the
promplness with which Mr. Sullivan ,
the gentlemanly manager and captain
of the Dubuquos , got his men into po
sition while in the field and also at the
bat. In reference- the Dubuque
nine , they were without an exception
us gentlemanly a lot of boys as the U.
Ps , have over had the pleasure effacing
facing in the diamond. The BEE re
porter had the pleasure of an
interview with Mr. Sullivan at
his hotel Saturday evening , and
found him to bo a perfect gen
tleman. In the oourso of conversa
tion Mr. Sullivan said that on bohalt
of the nine ho wished to extend his
thanks to the association , and ea-
ptuially to Mr. Sells , for the cour
teous manner in which they were on-
tortnint'd while in the city , and that
ho hoped at some future time to have
the * pleasure of coming to Omaha
again with aa good if not a bettor
nine. Mr. Sullivan was formerly
manager of the old Dubuque profes
sionals , uwl is considered ono of the
bust managers in the country. Satur

the lack of the usual "kicks , " there

of an exciting and closely contested
game played at the same time as the

small as 3 to 2.
The game was ono of the best over
played in this part of the country , the
two nines being very evonlv matched ,
the Chicago boys batting heavier than
their rivah though the latter were
superior an fielders.
The railroad boya made nothing un

two runs to make them even with the
two made by the Spaldings in the first
inning. There was nothing but goose

its fate to part company with them aa

from Woodstock , Md , , where , but a
short time previously , ho had been or
dained. Though a young man , his
ordination had been preceded by a
course of study extending over a pe
riod of about twenty years. It was
of course during this time , continu
ally as ho was at college and in the
company of students , that ho attain
ed that knowledge which fitted him
for iminudiato'y ' taking holdof Oreigh-
ton colloto ; with vigor and ability for
which ho is BO well known. The suc
cess attending his efforts has been or
ought to be consoling to the gentle
man , aa it redounds to the credit of

Epcchl Correspondence of The Bee.
DILLON , M. T. , August 7. Many
people entertain the idea that snowwn
the mountains is a most wonderful
sight. The snow is only soon in spots
whore there is a depression or basin
in which the snow can ledge and keep
partially shaded from the sun , and not
on the peaks , as many suppose , oxcvpt
on the extremely high ones. Horoaro
seen snow spots all along the high
pointa of the Rocky range , at frequent
intervals. Sumo of these elevations
are partially covered With scattering
SPUING ! HILL.
At this minor railroad division
headquarters wo halt thirty minutes
for dinner. Hero the mountain
Boenory is very attractive on account
of the variations in shape and appear-
auce. Some are dotted with banks of
snow and trees within a half day's
walk , while others look graywith bar
ren soil thrown up in peaks like BO
The road continues up the valley
between the two high ranges , which
are more or less covered with pine
trees that look to bo about as big as
bean poles. The valley is moro fer
tile , and ranchmen have built fences
hero and there , t'omocatllo are feed
ing on the green fields. The banks
of the creek are lined with cottonwood -
wood , and all in all this is not so desolate
elate a county as has benu described.
A few sago ( brush ) remarks are again
in order. The mountain scenery is HO
full of changes that it does not become
tiresome to look at. As wo progress
new and miraculous sights appear , the
most striking of which is a
HOT SODA. Sl-UINQ ,
which pours out of the very top of a
high pile of rocks about a hundred
feut above the track , at the rate of a
barrel a minute. Again wo have
u solid rock as largo as all the
houses in Omaha , a long ridge with a
crevice in it which admits ot the pas
oiigo of the train. The Big Hole river
is bordered with cottonwood trees
hero as before. This is one of the
three forks which comprise the head
waters of the Missouri river. Vege
tation now looks dried up , and the hot ,
scorching rnya of old Sol do not
promise to reilvo it. At 5 p. m. wo
a mining town of tents and rough
board houses , with 800 population.
This is an outfitting point for excur
sionists who visit the park. Above
this point the valley is level , two or
three miles in width , and is utilized
for agricultural pursuits by irrigation.
I saw as fine a field of oats , yet green
and growing , as I over saw anywhere.
Some farm houses are scattered
along the valley. After crossing a
level plain of several miles in extent ,
which is abundantly covered with
groups of cactus of the lUt-louvod va-
rietyof about two leaves height , wo
come to a focus , so to speak , wheruthe
bluffs which have hemmed our sphere
on the east and west for all day , hero
draw to a close and have opened a lit
tle , just enough lor the Big Hole
river and a railroad train to pass ,
This is a very "Montuneous"
Flumes that convey water for irri
gation , are seen winding their way
around the base of the mountains ,
which rise very high on either side of
us. They are surmounted by rocky
spires , pointing upward several foot
above the summit , which is wholly
made up of sand rocks. Wo follow
the Big Hole river for several miles.
Scattering pines abound on the moun
tain with a few cotton woods near the
rivor. This Is known as the
DIG HOLE OANON
and is a rough and yut picturetque
spot. The angles of the rcks uro
such as uro not laid down in the fun
damental rules of geometry , and are
hard to describe. This canon derives
its name from the large holes that
nature has formed hi the solid , mas
sive rocks that are so high. The train
