A prominent Treasury oillci.il said to

Tor tho past soveial weeks that tho Motin
politan Club Intended to disband, but tho
absurd rumor has reached Its demise Club
managers, who woro cator to atrongthon
their clubs, were located In Now York
city during tho past week with n view or
securing tho best or tho talent that coin
posed tho Mots, and it Is openly charged
that theso managers approached theso
playeis. Billy Barnoy of tho Baltimore
Club was tho most modest I?) in his de
mands. Ho only wants Orr, Nelson, Hank
inson and Boipschlagor. A representative
of tho Louisville Club wants Bosonian nud
Orr, whllo Mr. Lucas of St. Louis will
bo satisfied with Holboit. At tho loccut
meeting in Pittsburg, tho manager of tho
Metropolitans accused Mr. Jiarnlo of np
preaching his players, no denied it.
Whllo tho Baltimore woro in town last
week, Barnio was brought face to faco
with Orr, whom Mr. GIflord said was ono
of tho men approached. 'Did I ask you
to como tn Baltimore?' asked Barnio, ad
dressing Orr. 'Yes. you did,' was tho
fiauk reply. 'You said you wanted Nolson,
Bolpschlagerand myself.' 'You spoke to me
on tho same subject,' Interrupted Nelson.
'There's no harm in telling tho truth.
You told mo that if tho Mots disbanded you
would try and get four of our pl.iyeis.'
'This work of tolling ourplayots that wo
aio going to disband uaturally makes tho
meu feel Indifferent in their work,' said
President Bhonor yesterday, 'Wo aio not
going to disband, and nil minors to tho cou
tiary aro groundless, Tho Muls will play
through tho season, and mark my word,
they will mako a strong flcht to win (list
honors again.' Manager Mutifo, eiuuna

gentlemanly icpiesentatlvo talked to, and
ho informed us that ho would divulge tho

Bcv. Fathci D. S. Pbelan, editor or tho
H'etteiu ll'dfiimaii, St. Louis, preached an
eloquent discourso yestorday morning at
St. Peter's Church on tho subject ol "Ask

In tho afternoon ho replied emphatically
to tho Inquiries of a Critic iepirter;
"There will undoubtedly bo war between
England and Russia. I don't seo how it
can bo avoided tooner or later, it is absurd
to boliovo that an autocrat like Busssi will
submit to nibitration nil nfl'alr which has
already passed lutu history, Russia might

"What, in your opinion, is Russia's ulti
mate object ''
"Tho capture of Constantinople nnd tho
resultant division of tho itiitish Umpire.
Russia must havo an outlet. Tho laws of
all nations permit tlio owner nf a fifteen
acre farm to havo tho benefits of a high way,
and yet hero is BiimIii hemmed hi aud
utterly denied tin outlet. Slio wants tho
Mediterranean Sea, and sho will ultimately
get it. Gibbon saj3 that when Constantino
scrutinized all Jhuopo for a location for tbo
capital of his great empire he showed 10
matknblo sagacity and iudgnicut in select
ing Byantlum, It would havo been tho
greatest city hi tho world to-day if tho
Tuikahnd novor occupied it. In my opin
ion it is certain to fulfill Its destiny whou
cvor the Turks aio driven out."
"What will Ireland do in the event, of
"Do?" Ami Father Phclan laughed
heartily. "Don't you know that au Irish
mau is capable of moro dovilmont than any
other being, when ho onco gives his at

Bussla aud Unglnud means homo govern
