* The homo team missed First Baseman
O'Brlon , that bag being covered by ono
Solna , who played with the Sacrnmontos
last year and will probably tiot nppear In
Denver apain. Ho can stop balls , but ho can
not bat , nnd his attempt to run Oases' fur
nishes fun for nil to whom awkwardness Is
, laughable.
Burns nmJo his appearance In center field
for Denver , but did not particularly distin
guish himself. Otherwise the Donvors
played a lifeless and aggravating gaino , Ken
nedy's ' work in the box bulng iho only par
ticularly good feature. and listless Holding
allowing several hits that mleht have been
cut off. MuOurr was particularly dead.
The Lambs played sharply and briskly ,
flolcllng everything within roach , suvo nt ono
or two unimportant points , none of tbolr er
rors being costly.
In tbo first Shannon rnodo a bit , went to
second on Donnelly's base oil-balls and scored
on Hnlllgan's lilt.
In the fourth Twitcholl made a hit and
caino In on McCnuloy's two-bagger.
In the sixth McCauley knocked a * fly Into
distant loft iluld , which Muck secured after a
bard run and iv Jump , but. foil and the bull
wont on , and before ho could secure and got
the ball homo the batter had scorod.
In the eighth Griflln was presented first.
Twltcbell maUo a hit and McCauley made
ono and It scored both men ahead of him , but
ho was caught at * second.

turns out to applaud the fonts of the bang

wliUo the meetings inaugurated nt St.
Paul , Minneapolis , .Denver and other
cities of the grout west are growing
in popularity with every successive recur

could bo immeasurably enhanced bv sand

these events , no matter of which magnitude ,
could'bo gotten off in the time consumed in

Ho was taken to the police station , whore lu

The "Orange" dinmond Is of such fnm
thnt the case will no doubt attiact wide
spread attention , both in this country nnd
Europe. This Is the diamond which the
ladles of Queen Victoria's court bought for
the purpoao of presenting to her nt bur
golden jubilee. Tbo queen asffod ns n fnvor
that she bo permitted to name n bolter use
for it , and requested ns n moro lasting
mcmonto of the occasion thnt the gem bo dis
posed of and the proceeds devoted to the
erection of a chnrlty hospital. The diamond ,
which will bo offered iu evidence
today , weighs n fraction over 115
carats. Mr. Carroll , the present
owner , claims thnt there is but one Inrgcr
dinmond in existence tbo "
, "Tiffany Spark
ler , " which weighs tan carats moro und is
valued at 8100.000.
The "Orango" diamond was found in the
south African Holds in t S4. Its history
since that time bus been n remarkable one ,
und far surpasses that of tbo TIflnny stone.
It came Into _ the bauds of 4 Dutch Jeweler ,
who rccognizo'd its great value , and it wus
not until lSb that the cutting of i : "iris com
pleted. It wns of orange ctisr , * ad from
that it derives its name. 3abo iCi cUy , as
stated , it rlgnred in Qaeea Victoria's
jubilee. The ladies of the coari pcrc&ased It
for $70,000 and made great preparations for
its presentation , which was to bo oao of the
great events of the jabtlco.
There was great disappointment when aha
made the request that it bo sola for the pur
pose of establishing a hospital. The peculiar
and unexpected request was widely com- ,
inonted on nt the time. The diamond wnsT
disposed of and brought $60,000. Tbo pur
chaser was II. 11. Lawrence of Colorado.
.Mr. Lawrence presented It to his wife ,
who were it in 1ier necklace. It
remained In her possession until the failure
of Baring Brotho s , the London banner ) .
Mr. Lawrence was a hcavv loser through the
failure and ho was comoc-Ucd to dispose of
the gem. It was sold to Edward Bruce ,
formerly secretary of the Baltimore & Ohio
railroad. Mr. Bruce retained it In his pos-
ston until a month ngo , when ho sold ft to
Mr. Cnrroll at a great sacrilic. It is said the
purchase price was $50,000.
un June 4 iUr. uarrou placed the stone 111
the hmds of Mr. Scale. Though ho had pur
chased it at a bargain in became an nlophant
on his hands and bo wished to dispose of It.
He culled on the diamond broker , who said
that ho know a possible customer. Tbo
diamond wns loft with htm and the owner
wns given a receipt for it. Mr. Carroll's in
structions were thnt the diamond should not
bo sold for loss than $05,000. At the end of
two days Mr. Carroll called on the broker
nnd nslied about the gem. Ho was told ho
would have to wait several duys. Whon'Mr.
Carroll called again bo found the broker In n
joking mood. Mr. Carroll alleges that the
broker denied having it in his possession.
"What do you mean , sir , " gasped Mr.
Can oil , greatly frlghtonod.
"You heard what I said , " it is nllegod t
the broker replied. "I haven't got it in my
possession. "
"I'll have you arrested , " was the lotort ,
"If vou don't give mo that gem. " '
Mr. Scale Is further charged with having
said with n laugh , "Such u thing is not possi
ble in Now Yoik. "
Ho lott without nny bettor understanding ,
nnd made complaltit to the police , A war
rant wns issued for Scale's nrrost. After
bolng placed under arrest Mr. Sculo
expressed his willlngnesj to appear at
once before the court and explain
his side of Iho story. Ho was vrry much an
noyed when told thnt court was closed nnd
that he must spend the night in a prmon cell.
'Ho ' said ho could.furnish bail for any umouut
and asked that ho bo brought before soma
justice. The prisoner's friends hunted nil
around town for a justice , but when fhoy
llnully found ono ho refused to coino down to
headquarters to'accept ball , ns > thoumount
wns too largo.
tjoiilo was surrounded by drunken nnd dis
orderly prisoners arrested for various ordi
nary Offenses. Ho wns stylishly dressed nnrt
wore considerable jewelry. Ho refused to
talk when questioned , nnd said boould ex
plain the mutter iu court.
