" It wtuld be au almost endless task to call to
mind all tho noted player of twenty or thirty years
ago and their achievements," Mr. Palmer eon.
tlnued. " llowover, I cau tell you Incidents of
some of them, Bpeaklng of old billiard player,
tho first name that comes Into one's mind Is, of
course, that of Michael Thelan. Ho was the Hist
plyer of note In this country, and probably did
more for the establishment and development of the
game than any ono else. Ho died In 1S78, 1 think.
He was a Una man. I'oaicsscd of a good educa
tion, mil of business tact and energy, tie made his
mark In the world. Ho was vi ry popular and made
us sood a companion as ever aruunhad. 1'hclan
waa born In Ireland, I think, and his father kept
three billiard rooms In New York in 184. Michael
himself opened tho Arcade Billiard lloom Iu
Barclay atrcet In 1847. After that ho went to
Europe, and In ls53 he opened a room on Broad
way, New York, In partnership with Joseph N.
White; soon after he went to Ban Francisco In the
hoUItt of the gold fever.
Heplajedn match with M. Damon, of Paris,
for f 1,0(0 at Han Francisco, In lbM, and won. In
the same year ho commenced the manuracturo of
billiard tables In New York wltn II. V. Collcnder,
tin Bon-lu-law, continuing In this business until hla
deatn. Iu 1MT rhelan played a big game with
ltalph Benjamin for $2,ow. It wis rt bIx by twelve
four-pocket table, aud, to show how difficult play
ing waa under these conditions, the highest run
made was six. That would hardly satisfy tne
plaveraof to-day, would It T Fhelan also played
ono of the biggest matches ever played in this
country, and ouc of the first of any account, it
was with John Beerleter for f 15, OOO. The outside
betting amoanted to about two hundred thousand
dollars. ThU waa April, 1SS9, and It excited groat
Interest. I'helan won by ninny-six points, making
the highest run, lot That match was for the big
gest stake ol any overplayed. Phelan was a splen
did player and was unequalled In his time.
"Joo Whlto was a great player, too. nawas
celclebratcd for brilliant shots and his draw shots.
Ho was a very unassuming man and generally
liked. He played and won the first publlo billiard
match for a stake In this country at Syracuse, N.
Y., with Georpo Smith, of that place. White was
a Philadelphia boy, but lived In New York, where
he was run over by an omnibus about 1302.
John Beerloterwas among the good players of
that time, and ho wanted I'helan to play a return
match for $10,000, but I'helan would not do It.
"Barney Chrjatnl wob another oid-tlmcr. He
waa a bright, curly-beaded fellow and helped
James McCormlck In his room In the Assembly
Building at Tenth and Chestnut streets, this
city, that Is now being torn down. Ho, with
Michael I'helan, Joseph N. White and Christopher
DIM, who will play in the room-keepers' tour
nament this werk, played n match at tho open
ing of Crystal Falace In New York. Then there
was Prof. Claudius Bcrger. He was a French
man and a real profeswr of the game.
He was a revelation to American players when
he came here In 1S81. Nothing like him was ever
seen. I played a game with nlm once and I waa
bewailing my luck, when I'helan said to me:
"Never mlnJ. yon uld as well with him as I did. "
We never heard of tho massi shot before be came
hero, but wo soon learned It from him. Ho also
was the first to Introduce a smaller table than the
big ones on which we nscd to play. Prof. Berger
waa ooly In this country about nlno months, but
when he returned to Franco he took with blm
fu.ouo clear profit, ne was travelling through tho
South, when the Confederate army seized his
tables and appliances, and that disgusted, blm so
that he left tho country.
"mil Tieman was another old-timer and a
mighty good player. He died not long ago. He
wai beaten In September, 'U, for the champion
ship of America by Dudley Kavanagh. Kavunigb
had tne biggest nerve I ever saw, and It would
pull htm through many a game that would seem to
be lost. Ho playeu a number of matches, and In
June, 1RC3, played In a tournament In Irving Hall,
New York, for tho championship of America
against Beerleter, Foley, Tieman, .Hstcphc. Deory,
(loidihwalt and Fox lie won that match and be
came champion. Ho playeu a big matoh with
'lleman in Irving Hall In April, ISM. It
was for the championship of America and
-f 1,000. Both men played excellently and won a
meat deal of admiration, bnt Kavanagh won by
205 polnu. The Mayor or Mew York at that time,
Edwards I think It was, gave a dinner to tho con
testants and their friends, among whom I was In
cluded. When we got down to talking, tbe Mayor
pulled ont Ave one hundred dollar bills and wanted
to bet that Kavanagh and Tieman could beat any
two men In the world. The bet waa taken up. In
May, '60, Kavanagh forfeited the championship to
Fox In New York, as be waa too sick to play.
' John McDevltt was a good player and a very
popular man. He playad a most memorable match
with Joe Dion, a Canadian player, in Chicago. It
was tho laat professional game over played with
tna push shot. Dion had 435 polnu to hi credit
when McDevltt had but flneen. McDevltt then
took the cue and commenced to ahovo the ball
around. He ran up SO, 100, 150 without stopping
and the enthusiasm waa unbounded. People
cheered and applauded, and It was very lively.. He
did not stop at ICO though, but kept right on until
hut ran was 1, 4851 With tho 15 oe had, this put
blm out, the match being for l,eoo points. Tbls ts
tbe largest ran on record. And you can imagine
the scene when he was done. Tho people could
not contain tnemselvea. They carried McDevltt on
their shoulders, and he was a big man for a time.

The following relating to Napoleon III. the au
thenticity of which we absolutely guarantee Is not
generally known. On a citizen of Yankeeland
being presented to blm by Mr. Dayton, the Ameri

IIL , wishing to be most gracious, remarked pleas
antly, " I know New York well, and have some
very pleasant reminiscence of my visit there."
The feelings of the occupier or the unsteady
throne foun led by the ooup a'tlat may be more
easily Imagined than described, when the Oolh
nmlte, not to bo outdono In civility, blandly
replied, "I am glad to hear It; f none we
shall have tbe pleasure or seeing Your Majesty
there again beforo long." Bnt the poor Emperor
was used to this sort of thing, for when Lady
Bleaslngton, shortly after he bad been proclaimed
Emperor, went to the Tnllerles, expecting a hearty
welcome for the sake of the old days at Gore
House, Kensington, and met with a chilling recep
tion from the French Sovereign, who, full or his
now dignity, could not overlook the scandal which
her ladyship's known lntlmary with Count d'Oraay
ooul l not f.ll to give rlie to, the nephew of the
Petit Capornl distinctly got the worst or It.

The "Walkup brothers, Tolbert and Thomas,
whom we arrested next, had the best Illicit still I
hsvo yet seen. It was located In a room of 'about
the dimensions of to by 41 feet. It was dug In the
ground at tne bead of a ravine. The opening was
covered with chestnut stnnchlona, and over these
was placed tho earth from tbe excavation. The
mound was covered with brush, which made the
concealment complete, 'save for tho smoke arising
above It through a rent. The still was of recent
construction, and it the Walknps bad not been
molested they would have gotten rid or the tell-tale
smoke by pining It to their kitchen, abont one hun
dred yards distant, and running It out through tbe
chimney. They had completed their plana and
were on the point or putting them Into execution
When we interrupted operations. There was a third
party In the conduct of the still, bnt be got away

Deo. 8. Considerable excitement has been
occasioned hero by n report that Hocretary
Bayard had sent tho Moxioan Qjovernmont a
claim on behalf of Gutting for n largo sum of
monoy alleged as duo for illegal imprison
ment in Chihuahua and Paso Del Norto.
Information from Government cirolos, how
ever, is to tho olfect that tho United Btatos
havo not mndo poromptory demands on Hex-"
ico, but have urged Mexico, for tho sake of
futuro amicablo relations,. to modify her laws
regarding extra territorial jurisdiction, and
has suggested indemnity for Gutting, leaving
Mexico to name the amount.
There is no bad feeling in Government
circles, but likely to bo much angry talk in
tho press. Tho United States mado tho ro.
iptcstthroo weeks ago, sinoo which tho Presi
dent aud Ministers havo boon especially
cordial to American visitors. Tho matter, it
is said, will go through tho usual diplomatic
channels, and satisfaction is expressed that
Mr. Bayard lias handled tho case so as to
avoid placing Mexico in an embarrassing po
sition. No dooent American horo would support
a olnim for Gntting, for all believo him to be
simply n notoriety seeker, who deliberately
attempted to make trouble between tho two
countries. Gen. Jaokson was Minister hero
at tho timo, and nover believed that Cutting's
caso had n leg to stand on, and regarded it as
absurd. The reopening of the cose would be
buto to mako much feeling against American
Thcro has of lato sprung up an excellent
fooling towards Americans and tho United

"Of all the queer fellows 1 ever met, and I have
met a great many peoplo In my time, that little
ahrlvelled-np man you ace there Is the queerest,"
said an old traveller the other evening to a irortd
man ns the two were lounging In tho rotunda of
tho Millard Hotel. The man Indicated waa a gray
haired, nervous individual, who kept continually
sliding back and forth in tbo huge chair that ho
was vainly endeavoring to occupy, thrusting his
egs around, clutching continuously at the arms of
tho chair with hla hands and Jerking Ms bead
arouud as if trying to see everything going on
In every direction at once. "That man Is a
regular Jumping Jack. I have Jnst arrived from
Ban Francisco on tho same train with him, and It
has afforded us a great deal of amusement to watch
his antics. He haa been all over the world aud Is
on on his way East after spending the summer In
Alaska. He'll be all over this town In less than
two hours, and then prance up and down tho depot
and fume because the train 'does not leave Imnicdl
dlately. Ho can't remain quiet long enough at a
tlmo to get shaved, but gets up and charges
arouud the room two or three times beforo
the Job la completed. Hd la forever on the
go, and carries more baggage than
tne average watering place belle, taking better
caro of It than most people do of their babies. Be
fore leaving Ban Francisco ho procured aeveral
crates of choice frnlL Ho wrapped several lavers
of paper around the crates snd seenrod the whole
by buckling inree or four leather straps around
them. Actually, I don't think he slept three hours
on the whole trip, for ne spent all hla tlmo bobbing
about looking after his fruit and bags, washing his
handa and pulling hla ulovet on and off. Fuasy Is no
name for 1L He wonld Jump out nf his seat, rush
rrantlcally Io tho lavntory.wash his hands, throw
tne towel on the floor, snatch np the packages
containing his precious fruit, undo tho wrappers,
gazo admiringly at It, carefully tie It up again,
deposit the packages In a corner, wash hla handa,
throw another-towel on the floor, pull on his
gloves, gazo at himself in tbe glass, rush back to
his soat, fidget about for a few minutes, ralao the
window, lower It, Jump up all at once as If stung
by a wasp, cqarge wild eyed to tho lavatory, and
go through tno previous performance with elab
orate variations. At night be would get up about1
every half hour and satisfy himself that nobody
had tampered with his belongings.
" Among other things he nud a splendid Turkish
travclllng.bag, one of those affairs With a oount
Icsh number of pootcta that you can load up with
almost everytntng Imaginable, glvolta few kicks,
bucklo the straps, and there you aro with a bundle
that looks to tbe casual observer like a huge roll of
blankets. Ho wonld lug this into the smoking
room about nvo times every day, and take out
everything It contained, piling them up on the seats
around blm. 'J hen he would shake tho
bag, examine It minutely and proceed
to repack It, scrutinizing every article
carefully beforo putting ll In its particular
pocket. He informed mo on day in a burst of
confidence that he bud purchased the bag In Con
stantinople, and had carried It to every quarter of
tho globe. Ho laid particular stress upon the fact
that It was as good aa new, That's what ono gets
for taking caro or things,' said he Tvo got a
a nephew, a harum-scarum sort of fellow expects
to get some of my money when I die but I'll fool
him, d n him. lie Is at school. If I were to loan
this bag to blm for one vacation what do you think
would becomo of It 7 Why, sir, the hogs wouldn't
look at It again,' and the old gentleman slammed a
shoe-brush on tbe floor, glared at the boy snd
danced around as 11 the very thought of such a
catastrophe was enough tojustlfy him In slaughter
Inn Bome one.
'Everything he 'sees excites his curiosity and
he has to Investigate it. This samo trait got him
into trouble on this trip and nearly soared him to
death. Three or four of us were seated In tho
smoking room enjoying our weeds and discussing
tho health ot tho German Crown Prince. All at
once we beard a terrific roar and Instantly tho
train slacked Its speed. We Jumped up aniTrusbed

man, his eyes sticking out,, bis few remaining

In a manner that threatened momentary

questioned hla tongue refused to perform It func

Keeping House and Hoarding.
fYom U. VhiladiipKia BIUlU.i
' The man who goes to housekeeping after hav
ing lived lu a boarding-house most of his llfo
.naturally rejoices at tho change, because, after
all, there Is nothing like putting one's feet under
one's own mahogany, don't you know r" remarked
a Benedict tbls morning; "but those who are not
so privileged shonld not Imagine vain thing. The
man of the house haa a thousand more responsi
bilities than the man who boards, and these. In a
measure, balance the advantages. For Instance,
It not infrequently happens that the servant be
comes obstreperous and has to be discharged. Then
he finds that there Is coal to carry np; that there aro
furnaco Area to rake down and keep ablaze; that
there areywlndow-shutters to shut, and that the
milkman and the baker come at a disgustingly
early hour In tho morning, and that If he wauts
cream for his coffee and rolls for hla breakfast be
must get up and ansner their knocks at the gate.
He finds, too, that there are clocks thst all the tlmo
demand winding, thattbt-re are people who seem
to make It a business to ring bis door bell and ask
where Mr. Smith live, and that there are a thou
sand and one little errands that Bridget nsed to do
that he baa to do now himself. OS, ye; there are
a good many thlnga to mitigate the Joys of house
keeping, espeolslly when you happen to be with
out a servant-girl'
"Pant" at Ded-Uock Price.
From a Jto.ro llr.J
Tbo somewhat atartllng and 'amusing Inquiry,
" Do you wear pants;" which appears In large let
ters upon tho fences, sides of bulldlnrjr and the
bill-boards In different parts ot this city Is tbe
unique stylo of advertising which has been adopted
by a Boston clothing firm. Clothing was never so
cneap as now, bnt this enterprising Yankee Arm
are selling men's trousers at $3 per pair, made to
order. Their factory. In which many hundreds of
handa are employed, Is being rnn ntgbt and day
to lbs fullest capacity, to meet the constantly
Increasing orders lor cheap pantaloons. This
Is the way the manufacturers of this
specialty figure the cost of the popular " unmen
tionables. " The average pair of iiouaers calls for
lit ysrds of cloth, double width. It costs from CO
to So cents per yard. Two snd one-naif yards at
60 cent Is U for the cloth. The wslst and lining
are made of lnexpensli e cambrto and the pockets
of cheap cotton cloth. The but Ions cost a total of
5 cents, making the total outlay lor one pair of
pants it is. Allowing a sufficient percentage for
lalxir and rent, one can readily perceive that a
small margin of profit la left torthe manufacturer.
Thus can young men of small means provide them
selves with fashionable pantaloons at exceedingly
T,es Perfumery and Moro Comfort.

WnUh Cannot Find DrlM-oll' Man Tho
Death Watch Io bn Met on Dec. 11
Scorching the Murderer' Cell.
Tho discovery nnd frustration of his plan
of cBcnpo and a night in condemucd coll No.
ffi put Murdorcr Dan
Driscoll in a bad hu
mor this morning.
When a plentiful
breakfast of tender
loin steak, fried po
tatoes, eggs aud coflco
was carried to him at
7.30 o'olock this morn
ing, ho callod ont to
Deputy Wardon Flu
DAW DBiscoi.t,. ley : " Don't bring
that in hero or I'll break tho crooks to pieces.
Tell Mr. Walsh that I won't eat any break
fast until ho gives mo back my girl's letters."
Driscoll referred to a paokago of letters
which wero found in his cell during tho
searoh instituted whilo ho was nt court yes
torday. It mado him vory angry when ho
realized that ho had been dejirivod of them,
and his constant gruiublo last night was :
" Ho might hnvo been content with half
starving mo nnd taking away ray exorciso
without collaring my girl's letters. "
When tlio warden henrd that thero was
groat danger that Driscoll would not cat his
breakfast he langhod and said that ho didn't
caro. In half an hour tlio Whyo ohlof
thought bettor of his terrible threat
and took his food gladly, dospito tho
fact that, his lottcrs were still withhold.
Wardon Walsh is determined to render it
impossible for Driscoll or any of tho othar
condemned men to got' as near escaping as
Lyons and Drisooll were yesterday. Dan
Lyons, who is to hong for shooting young
Qulnn, has been taken from tbo second tlor
to cell IS in Murdorors' How. Lorens Itoich,
tho wifo murderer, has also had his quarters
Each of tho oondemnod colls woro searched
this morning by tho Warden in porson,
accompanied by two keepers. This pro.
gramme will bo followod twico daily in tho
caso of every man under scntenco of doath.
Tho puzzling thing about tho attempt of
Lyons and Driscoll is that all attempts to
find tho saw with whioh the thick iron bars
wero severed havo proved futile. A thorough
Benrch has bouu mado not only of tbo colls
formerly occupiod by tho condemned men,
but of the surrounding passageways. Tho
Erisonors, who woro at exorciso yesterday,
avo also been searched, and tho conolusion
is irresistible that tho implement has bcon
convoyed outside the prison.
Wardon Walsh's theory is that a friend of
Lyons, who has visited him daily, passed him
the saw through tho grated door of his cell,
and that after Lyons got his bar Rawed
through he passed it to Driscoll. Uo thinks
that Driscoll got wind of tho discovery
yesterday.in time to get rid of tho saw. in a
similar way beforo ho was searched.
Tho Warden saya that ho knows tlio namo
of tho man who brought the saw into tho
prison, but will not mako it publio bocauso
in tho absenco of tho implement ho cannot
prove anything against him.
Driscoll's dosperato attempt will liavo tho
effect of bringing tho death watoh to tho
prison earlier than usual. Hitherto tho Sheriff
has put his men in tho condomned coll ton
days before tho oxecntion.
Ab Driscoll's exeoution is fixed for Jan. 20
tho death watoh is not duo for fivo weeks
yet, but tho Sheriff is said to intend setting
the death watch on Deo. 15.
When Warden Walsh was asked about this
ha said ; " I wish Sheriff Grant would sond
tho death watoh right away and tako tho
restKinsibilitvoff niv hands. Drisooll is n
dosperato man and ho seems to have frionds
who know how to holp him.
' ' You must remember." said tho Warden,
. " that this is not the first attempt at escape
, from the prison. mado , by Driscoll. Eight
, months ago ho and the murderer Smith con
cocted a pretty olovor plan to get freo.
' Smith tried to dig through tho floor, but
1 Driscoll managed to got a key mado whioh
, fitted his coll door. He also had a falso beard
i and mustache smuggled into his coll.
" Soo," oontinuoa Mr. Walsh, opening a
1 drawor in bin desk ; " horo aro the articles.
It was arranged tha t in tho dead of night tho
friend who had tho koy should open Dris
coll's door and ha should como ont dis
guised in this falso board. Smith
expected to work his way out at tho
some time, and the two had planned to catch
tho koepor off his guard, hit him on tho head
and get out. But I managed to intimato to
Driscoll's friend that I knew all about tho
key and that tho scheme wouldn't work."
Tho key produced by tho Warden was of
muss and was vory cleverly mado. Tho falso
beard was also of thoxilnest make and was of
such a slzo ns to render a man totally un
recognizable by his best friends.

Ho was a passenger, tho story went, on tho

of cholora aboard. It was furthor stated that

In tho first plnco thoro was no James Don
