the games were skillfully played and -won

CUSHION AND CITE AHTIS'IS.
Jle.ssrs. Shaw and Sherman Enter
tain n Large Audieuee.
A large ciowd of gentlemen "who are
devotees to the cushion and cue "were en
tertained at. Scanlon's pailors last night
by Lew Shaw, the famous finger billiard
1st and fancy sl.ot player, and Frank
Sherman, the wizaid with the pool balls.
Sherman opened the program "with an
exhibition of intricate shots on the pool
table. He rocketed the balls at all sorts
of crazy angles, and won repeated ap
plause by his cleverness. As his "closing
act," in response to a hearty encore,
he placed six balls in a bunch in the
center of the table, and then with the
cue ball near the head cusli'on he drove
the pack into separate pockets, as called
beforehand. The successful execution of
the pretty conceit aroused the greatest
enthusiasm among the audience.
Prof. Shaw followed with a number of
clever finger tricks with the pool balls,
and then gave an exhibition at billiards.
He counted on balls dcjwsited in his silk
liat, jumping the cue ball from the bed of
the table into the glossy tile. He also used
two tables In making a shot, speeding the
while ball five feet over the passageway
between the tables to count on the two
reds. These, with a number of other seem
ingly impossible feats, composed the enter
tainment, which wiltnotbesoonforgotten by
those v. ho witnessed the work of the two
Proceedings of the League Meet
ing at' Baltimore.
RULES AND RDSIB DISCUSSED
A Slight Change as to Couching An
3neicns,o In the "Membership of
the Board of A rhitration Presi
dent Xotuig Will Have Exclusive
Appointment of Official Scorers.
Baltimore, Feb. 26. Rules, Rusiearid the
schedule were cussed and discussed by the
baseball magnates today. Tonight Harry
Von der Horst entertained the visitors at
a dinner at the Ilenncrt, and at a late
hour the crowd separated to meet again
tomorrow for a concluding session.
As predicted in these dispatches, the
League season will open on the 22d of
April, except in Boslon, where there will
be one preliminary game April 19, which
is a local holiday. The champions will
have Boston as the attraction lor the open
ing days; Brooklyn will play in Washing
ton, and New York In Philadelphia. In
the West, St. Louis will have the Pltls
burg team for the opening day, Louisville
will have Cleveland, and Cincinnati will
entertain Uncle' Anson's Colts.
The Rusle case was the first thing takeu
up by the League directors today. After
a thorough discussion it was determined
that the league should undertake the de
fense of the equity suit brought by the
big pitcher in New Jersey, it being the
.senseofthe meeting that reservation clause
inthenationalagreement must beprotcctcd
at any cost, Messrs. Soden, of Boston;
Freedman, of New York, aud President
Young were appointed a committee to
represent the league, and they were given
plenipotentiary powers to combat the
great twirler in the courts of New Jersey
The next important action of the meet
ing was to increase the membership of the
uat'onal board of arbitration from four
to six. James A. Hart of Chicago and
Frank Be Haas Ilobisonof Cleveland were
added to the board after a lively debate.
Mr. Brush presented the resolution and
made a sliong aigument in favor thereof.
Messrs. Soden, Fieedman and Kirr strcn
i:o lsly opposed the change but their effoits
wetc futile. The opposition refused to
ote when the question was .out. The
vote resulted 9 to 0.
The date of the annual meeting of the
board of arbitration was then tampered
with, and when the smoke cleared away it
was found that the first Friday after the
second Tuesday in November had been de
cided on. Things were getting rather hot
by this time, and Mr. A7 on der Horst sug
gested that the meeting take a recess.
This was agreed to, and Mr. Von tie Horst
took the crowd to a photographer, where a
group picture was taken.
The report of the committee on rules
was taken up when the league reassem
bled. The result of the committee's labors
was unanaimously indorsed, and a vote
of thaanks was tendered to Messrs. Hart,
H anion and Beach for their effective
work. The only pronounced change is the
rules in regard to the coaching. Heieafter
but one coachor will be allowed on the
lines when there Is only one man on a
base. When more than one player has
reached first base a second coacher can
go on the field and use his lungs to his
The League decided to give President
Young absolute power In the appointment
of official scorers. This feature will
doubtless affect the averages of some
players, a- it is intended to stop the playing
of favorites by appointing men qualif
ied to scorcthe game without fear orfavor.
The report of the committee on umpires
and a few odds and ends will be disposed of
tomorrow and the League will then adjourn

"One thing isceitain,'' he exclaimed,

him to be. That man Jeffries is a young
giant and Jim threw him about like a
cork when tlley clinched. I expected to

The exodus from Corbett's quarters this

PAT HA HOY' lATCIIKD.
The Local Champion "Will Flight
Tommy Hynn at lloehester.
The articles for a twenty-round fight
between Pat Ilaedy, the local champion,
and Tommy Kyan, tho celebrated welter
weight, were perfected yesterday, when
Ilaedy put hisslgnatureto the papers. The
contest will take place at lloehester, N.
Y., on Wednesday, -March 17, St. Patrick's
Day, the date on which Corbet tand Fitz
Simmons will fight at Carson City.
Ilaedy received a very generous offer
from the lloehester club, and though he
estimated tho powers of llyan at full
value, he decided to accept the terms of
the club, and take a chance at winning a
national reputation as a boxer.
Ryan is one or the ;best known fighters
berorc the public, and should Ilaedy de
feat him or even make it a draw his
future is assured. Ilyan recently whipped
Tracey, at Syracuse, and is said to be in
better condition than at any time in his
Ilyan defeated the lnte Billy McMillan,
of this city, in three rounds, at llichardson,
III., August 9, 1891, and has bested such
good ones as Danny Needham, Dick Moore,
Con Doyle, Billy Layton, and "Shadow"
Maber. He was stopped by Jack Defnpsey
in an exhibition, and was knocked out by
"Kid" McCoy in a fifteen-round battle
at Maspeth, L. I., on March 2, 1896.
Ilyan's leal name is Joseph youngs. Ho
was born in Itedwcod, N. Y., March 20.
1S70,. and is therefore in his twenty
seventh year. Hefightsas a weltei weight,
and generally enters the ring at 156
pounds or thereabouts.
Ilaedy is in fine form as a lesult of
training for his IjgliJ; with Ilite Peckham,
which fell thioijglu He will continue to;
train at his quarters-on II street until a
few days beforje-the time set for the
mill at Rochesterjwhen he will go to
that city. Raedy is piodest in his asser
tions' as to thetoutcohie pf the contest,
but says if hard punching and determin
ation to win wilUavail anything Ilyan's
colors .will.surely be lowered.

The World of Business
Speculation in -"Wall street yesterday
turned upon the pardon or Sanguilly by the
Spanish government The 'importance of
this news was not appreciated by the gen
eral run or tiadeis, and the feeling all
about was that probably the market might
go off slightly, though, of course, it was
evident that the Sanguilly pardon had
greatly cleared the atmosphere. The re
sult was, therel'qre, a surprise, and rather
a costly one, to a "great many people. Busi
ness, which was decidedly sluggish during
the morning, assumed fairly large propor
tions In the afternoon, when the tone be
came strong anil prices advanced all along
the line. When the shorts attempted to
cover, the demand developed a very small
rioating supply of stoeks, and it is, there
fore', not stirprisiugimder the circumstances
that the advance made rapid progress.
Houses with connections here were among
the principal buyers, a fact that was very
significant, of course, and that certainly
stimulated the upward movement. A cu
rious fact of the day's business was that of
the 150,000 shares dealt in during the day
those that changed hands during the last
hour of business aggregated as large an
amount as the sales for the previous four
hours. Sugar figuredor one-fourth of the
whole market's business..
It seems to be the general opinion on the
street at present that the Cuban situation
has, Tor a time at least, lost its terrors.
There is a strong bull undercurient in the
market, good for a rise surely, if Cuba
does not figure further in the situation,
and probably good to keep up prices fairly
well while there is nothing in tlie Cuban
affair but talk, as it now seems probable
that there will be during the remainder
of this administration. However,he ad
vances were so strong yesterday that it
would be well to look for some decline,
perhaps a small one, today. Our other
troubles are disappearing. The situation
in Crete is now unimportant to the stock
market; the general business outlook is
fine, for a short time atleast, aud thespecial
felicities of this particular season which
heralds the new administration, must he
counted on for their effect. There is no
reason to expect large business, or much
more than the professional trading, in fact,
for some time to come, but nearly every
thing is favorable if you wish to get Into
Consolidated Gas scored the greatest ad
vance during the day yesterday, selling
up 3 1-2 points to 153 1-2, on reports
from Albany that the agitation for a
reduction in the present price of gas
had proved unsuccessful at the present
session of the legislature. The speculating
publiclikes to trade In gas companystocks.
It is so well known that the manufacture
of gas is a paying business, that where
the companies are at all on a good foot
ing and in good odor, their stocks sell
well and at fairly good figures. Chicago
Gas albo had a good rise yesterday, clos
ing for the day at 76 5-8, an advance of a
point. The plan for consolidating the
Chicago Gas Company will be introduced
in the legislature next week, and passed,
without a doubt. There can be no safer
speculation on the board at present than
the purchase of Gas around 75. It ought
to be good for 5 .points, at least, with
no very long wait cither.
Sugar was to a mote than usual extent
the feature of the market yesterday , and
seems to be having its uual ante-dividend
rise to around 120. Sugar, which has
been strong all the week, started at
114 5-8 and closed at 116 3-8, a point
and three-quarters gain, at within 1-4 of
the highost figures of the day. The divi
dend is due on March 10, and until that
time sugar is a good pui chase.
There is a goud ceal to enjoy in finance
in addition to the simple elementary
pleasure of jingling coins in one's pockets.
EveryLodj in the stieet is laughing over
the finding of the Lexow committee in
trying' to locate a coal trust. If there
is such a trust Mr. Lexow has so far
been unable to discover nny combination
agreement among the coal people.
From an inside source it is learned that
there are pools now at work in Chicago
Gas and Omaha Preferred. It is suspected
also that there is a-Sugar pool. Like
Gas and Sugar, Omaha Preferred is
at present an especially good purchase.
Buy on all breaks.
Dow, Jones & Co, s-y of St. Paul: "We
are told that the interest which bulled St.
Paul last year and which sold considerable
stock last spring, has bought moderately
in .the last three weeks. They do not
apparently ex pect an immediate advance in
prices, but believe the decreases in earn
ings are nearly over, and that aside from
the continued ill-health ot President Miller
the causes which have been jirfectlng the
stork adversely are in a fair way to l.e re
moved. They believe the stock will sell
sometime this year considerably above the
highest of 189G."
In the local stock market American
Graphophone has already apparently re
covered the amount of its dividend. It was
selling ex-dividend yesterday aj; 9 1-S.
The stock is strong and shows considerable
activity. Pneumatic Gun Carriage will yield
nothing on its present prices despite the
efforts or the people who are trying to
sell it down. Holders refuse to give it up
at those prices, and are looking for ad
vances for some time to come. Mergenthaler
Linotype cannot be purchased for less than
125. Prices all over the list are holding
their own. aud will advance quite ap
preciably, it is believed, during the spring.
Tlie bull side is the one to be on in local
It. G. Dun & Co. will say today in their
weekly review of trade:
Genuine improvement in business does
not come with a rush, like the breaking
of a great dam. The growth for some
weeks past has been gradual and moderate.
The rupture of the steel rail and Tither
combinations in the iron business has
brought out a vast quantity of trade
which had been held back and has set
many thousands men at work, while the
slow but steady gain in other great In
dustries has given employment to many
thousand more? but the full effects will
not appear until the increased purchases
by all these swell the distribution or goods
This comes more slowly and later, but
is already apparent. Certainty regarding
the ruture will help it mightily, and is by
multitudes expected with strong hope.
"Meanwhile it is substantial ground ror
confidence that months which were rc
garded by many in the money market
with serious apprehension, have passed
without disturbance, and with steady gain
in the position o'f the country and of the
It was not to be expected that the
excess of exports over imports would
continue as large in January as it had
been in previous months, and yet it was
surprisingly laTge. The February returns
have naturally been less favorable, as
cotton exports fall off this season, and
yet the decrease compared with last year
is trifling, while the increase in imports,
to be expected atthisseason.'has amounted
during the past three weeks to only
$029,040, compared with last year, or
about 2 per cent. Nothing in the state
of foreign exchanges indicates that the
heavy, credits in favor of this country
have been liquidated or seriously dimin
ished. Bradstrceb's will say:
"Tlie placing of orders for nearlvl ,500,000
tons of steel within the past three weeks
Is the most important influence for im
provement in general trade since the N'o-
vember election. A good share of these
orders is for blooms and billets, and in
asmuch as the bulk of them are placet! with
the more modern among the larger steel
mills, the latter find themselves well sup
plied with work for months to come. The
Bessemer pig Iron and steel billet market
have been duly influenced and firm with
moderate advances on heavy sales. The
contracts for steel rails taken since the
break In the price, together with expendi
tures necessary to lay the rails, means the
placing In circulation of no less than $35,
000,000. The meaning of sales of rails
for export has been exaggerated, as some
orders jilaeed abroad were due to English
mills being temporarily engaged on other
forma of steel. The rush for rails appears
to be about ovur, and the outlook is for
higher prices. Consumption of Bessemer
pig Iron Is in excess of production, and
wire and wire nail mills are running full
time. Many woolen mills in New England
have started up. Manufacturers are buy
ing in expectation of a duty being placed
on raw wool. Recent improvement in cot
ton goods is maintained.
The week's volume of clearings Is $783,
420,055, 12 per cent less than last week,
but 14 per cent less than In the like week
one year ago. The price movement is
more favorable There are 258 business
failures reported throughout the United
States, compared with 325 last week, and
271 in the week one year ago.
