Eight Clubs Gained For the
Allegheny County Leape.
A CHANGE IN THE BULES.

A LETTER FliOM SPEIKTER SMITH.
He Explains How He Was Bolted at
THE BALL PL1TEKS LEATE AUSTRALIA
There promises to he greater activity
among what is termed local amateur ball
this year than there has ever been. There
will undoubtedly be among clubs in and
about the city, but the great feature will be
the Allegheny County League. The gen
eral interest in this organization has been
demonstrated recently by the exchange of
of opinions published in these columns.
HoweTer, it may be stated as a fact that the
league will be organized and will be strong
er than heretofore: at least this was stated to
be a fact by an official of the league yesterday.
"Wc hare definitely resolved to increase our
league to eight clubs. Of course they hare
not been selected yet, but I can. I think, name
the eight. They will be: East End Athletics,
Homestead, Braddock and Duqacsr.es; the
four being the old league.
THE TOUR SEW CLTJBS.
The new four will be the Emsworths, Se
wickleys, Etna Stars and a team made up of
players from the G. T. Ts. and "V. J. Knchnes.
The clnb will take the latter name. If nothing
unforeseen occurs these eight clubs will form
the new league. However, 1 hear that Ed
Monis intends to organize a strong team with
England as pitcher. If this is done Morris'
team may be admitted instead of some other.
Hazelwood has also applied, together with one
or two other clubs. The league meeting will
not be held until some time next month, and
I feel certain that the teams named will be
selected. AVe have beard from them all."
The question of grounds is a difficulty hard
to overcome by some clubs, but great encour
agement is given on the matter by the fact
that at the league meeting a change will be
made in tbe constitution to meet the case.
Clubs not having grounds of their own will
have their home games scheduled on the
grounds of other clubs. In these home games
the club claiming them a such shall have con
trol of all the receipts, out of which they must
pay for all advertising, balls, etcx, the 'visit
ing" or the real home club paying for the
umpire, the same as if the game was bemc
played by tbe club away from its own grounds.
A DESIKABLE CHANGE.
A change of this kind, it is expected, will
Surmount the difficulty complained of. The
clubs having grounds are: The Braddocks,
Homesteads, East End Athletics, Emsworths,
Etna Stars and Sewickleys. This leaves only
two clubs without grounds. The creat benefit
resnlting from having an organization will
probably prompt all parties concerned to act in
a give-and-take spirit as much as possible. If
this is so there is no fear of the league.
The league's season will open on April 20
and close on September 17. Referring to this
the official alreadv quoted said: "We will close
at the time named, because the weather begins
to break up about then: at any rate tbe attend
ance falls off greatly. Vt'e have, or at least we
Intend to have, four regular umpires and a sub
stitute Each umpire will be paid $2 per game.
There are plenty of men to select from, and I
think that Zachariah, of Homestead. Jlyler, of
the East End, and Arbergart, of Allegheny, will
be three of the umpires."
The East End Athletics are not sure of the
services of Ad Gumbert, the pitcher, for the
reason. He told a friend tbe other day that if
lie can obtain six months' leave of absence
rnm his employment at the Piothonotary's
office he will play in Chicago. If he cannot se
cure leave of absence, however, he will remain
here, and will pitch lor the East Enders. This
will give them a great advantage, and in all
probability the amateur pennant. The Ems
worths, however, nromise to be strong, as they
have two excellent pitchers who will help out
the weak batting of the team. The Home
steads will be strong as ever, and altogetner
the league will be a good one.

ments for a ficbt with Jim Darrab. Tbe battle
will come off in a short time near the Virginia

Trouble in the Cnmp.
New York, January 10. The Association
Schedule Committee continued its labors
yesterday. Messrs. Byrne. Von der Abe and
Barnie were closeted during almost the whole
day, and at a late hour to-night were still at
work. There seems to be a hitch somewhere.
It is rumored that Von der Ahe is dissatisfied
with the Brooklvn club's share of last year's
plums, and is making a strenuous fight for an
equal division of next season's fruit The
session will probably not be finished before
to-morrow night Barnie is between two fires.
Billy is well able to look out for number one.
A REMARKABLE DRAW.
Mulholland nnd Mnhnn Fight Nenrly Six
Hoars nt 'Frisco.
SAJf Francisco, January 10. The fight
which occurred at the gymnasium of the Gold
en Gate Athletic Club last night between the
lightweights, Billy Mahan, of California, and
George Mulholland, of Australia, was the long
est ever seen on this coast Tne battle com
menced at 9:40 o'clock and continued until 325
this morning, when it was declared a draw at
the close of the eighty-seventh round. Joe
McAuIiffe, who was recently defeated by Peter
Jackson, was referee.
Throughout the fight Mulholland showed
himself tho superior in ecience and quickness,
but Maban exhibited all the qualities of a
game and hard fighter. About the fiftieth
round it seemed almost certain that Mulhol
land would win, as he had been punished very
little, while Mahan's lips and check were
badly swollen and his eyes nearly closed, and
he had lost one tooth by contact with the
Australian's head. However, Mulholland did
not seem able to give the knock-out blow, and
during the last two buurs of the fight Mahan
was as fresh as his antagonist and adminis
tered some severe punishment on Jlulholland's
wind. Both men slipped and fell to the floor
several times durinc the battle, but tho only
clean knock-down was in tbe fifty-second
round, when Mulholland was knocked under
the ropes bv a terrific blow in the stomach.
After it became apparent that neither of the
men was likely to be knocked out there were
numerous demands for a draw, and the referee
finally consented to the proposition, as the
battle had lasted five hours and three-quarters
and both men were too weak to strike an ef
VON DER AnE WANTED.
ninnncer Phillips Desires to Find Him
Locnl Ball Gossip.
Manager Phillips is gradually regaining his
strength and expects to be out enjoying the
fresh air within a week or so. Yesterday after
noon he had a few words to say about baseball
matters. He said:
"I have not heard from Von aer Ahe yet, and
if I knew where to reach him I would wire him
at once asking definitely what he means. I
want to know whether or not he'll play, as I
can make other arrangements if thev won't
play. I have had a letter from the Detroit
club. The latter wants to come here and open
the grounds for the season on April 13. If we
return from our Western trip by that time De
troit's desire will be granted."
Referring to Mr. Spaldlnc's opinions as ex
clusively stated in The Dispatch yesterday,
Mr. Phillips said: "I think that if the Associa
tion docs not adopt the League graded salary
rule it will interfere greatly with the latter, as
it will be sometimes difficult to buy an Associa
tion player without paying high for him."
A LETTER FROM SMITH.
The Local Sprinter Snys Ho Was Robbed
A letter was received in the city yesterday
from George Smith, tbe local sprinter wbo
started in tbe recent Sheffield Christmas handi
cap. The letter was not long but very pointed.
It was written two days after the handicap.
George says that bo was absolutely robbed by
the referee. He. Smith, declares that he won
his beat by fully a half yard and that the
referee decided against him. A scene of the
wildest kind followed, is the public had backed
Smith heavily. He started first favorite, his
price being 7 to 2 against two days before tbe
handicap started. Smith adds that a serious
riot almost took place on the grounds.

Scenes and Incidents at tne Home of rrcsilenUEIect
The Democrats organized the Indiana
Legislature yesterday. Lieutenant Gov
ernor Itobertson was refused admission to
the Senate chamber. Great excitement pre
vailed throughout the proceedings, Mrs.
Harrison is asked to abolish wine from the
White House. The General is presented
with a unique cane.
Indianapolis, January 10, The Fifty
sixth General Assembly of Indiana con
vened this morning. The Democratic caucus
nominees for the various offices were duly
elected. The House stands: Democrats, 57;
Republicans, 43. Hon. Mason J. Niblack,
of Knox county, son of ex-Judge Niblack,
of the Indiana Supreme Bench, was chosen
Speaker. The other House officers chosen
are: Clerk, Thomas NcwKirk; Assistant
Clerk, John S. Scobey; Doorkeeper, Frank
The chief interest in the session centered
around the Senate chambers. Crowds gath
ered about the lobby in anticipation of see
ing a genuine fight, as it was understood
the Democratic Senators had by caucus
action determined not to recognize the
authority of Lieutenant Governor Kobejf
son. The Democrats have a majority of
four in the Senate. Admission to the
Senate chamber was by ticket. Colonel
Bobertson arrived early and elbowed his
way through the crowd. A big sturdy
doorkeeper named Bulger, the same who
laid violent hands on Colonel Itobertson
during the last session, stood at the entrance
and refused to admit him.
"I am President of the Senate and demand
admission," said Bobertson.
"You can't have it," replied Bulger. I
am acting under instructions. Please stand
back and make room for the gentlemen with
Colonel Bobertson stepped back and made
no further attempt to gain admission, al
though he remained near by until adjourn
ment. Under the law it becomes the duty
of the State Auditor to organize the
Senate in the absence of the pre
siding officer. Judge Mitchell, of
the Supreme Court took the
gavel and inquired whether Auditor Bruce
Carr was present. Mr. Carr stepped out
and briefly declined to act, stating that he
knew Lieutenant Governor Bobertson, the
constitutional presiding officer, was at the
door demanding admission, and hence he
would not usurp his power.
Senator Johnston then read, midst great
confusion, a letter from Bobertson stating
that he was at the door ready to fulfill his
duties, and requesting that fact to be called
to the attention of the Senate. Senator
Johnson concluded by submitting a reso
lution directing that the Auditor of State
direct the doorkeeper to admit Colonel
Bobertson. Johnson put his resolution to
vote the Senate was in a perfect uproar
and declared it carried, but it had no effect
on the doorkeeper.
Judge Mitchell and the Democratic mem
bers of the Senate then proceeded to or
ganize that body, the Republicans retrain
ing from voting. James F. Cox was by
resolution chosen President of the session,
and took the chair. The Bepublicans pro
tested acaiust Cox taking the oath, but
Judge Mitchell administered it and then
left the chamber.
- Alonzo S. Smith was declared elected Sec
retary of the Senate. The vote was chal
lenged and the debate was very acrid. The
minor offices were filled likewise and the
Mrs. Harrison had a goodly number of
callers to-day. The total abstinence ladies
are importuning her to discountenance the
use ot wines at the White House, while
other ladies are troubled over the matter of
bustles and such like, the sinfnl use of which
they think Mrs. Harrison ought to frown
upon, but Mrs. Harrison declines to become
or to assume to become an arbiter of fash
ions. AT HARRISON'S HOME.
There was a large number of visitors at
the Harrison residence, but not many po
litical callers. One of the first visitors of
note was the Hon. J. A. Edgcrton, Senator
elect from the new State of South Dakota,
who is on his way to Washington. He
had a conference with the President-elect
and talked over the prospects of the early
admission of the Dakotas. No special sig
nificance is believed to attach to his visit.
He left for Washington by the early train.
Other visitors were the Hon. W. D.
Farquhar, of Massachusetts, and Captain
Pratt, of the Carlisle Indian school. The
Captain is a native of Indiana. His confer
ence with General Harrison was upon In
dian educational affairs. A party ot promi
nent Ohio people from Cleveland were
among the callers this afternoon. The party
comprised Colonel D. P. Ellis and wife,
Hon. Truman E. C. Handy and wife, Mr.
and Mrs. W. H. Waite and Mrs. Anna C.
Crowell. Their visit was entirely social.
General Harrison was to-day the recipient
of another carved cane, more unique if any
thing than its predecessors. It comes from
Joseph Bolt, a blacksmith at Schuylkill
Haven, Pa. It is of hard spruce. In the
middle is carved a log cabin from which a
boy carrying his school books has emerged
and is climbing upward. The next figure
shows the boy grown to manhood and riding
his charger with drawn sword in battle.
Near the top stands Uncle Sam holding a
laurel wreath in one hand for the soldier
and with the other pointing upward to the
temple of fame with which surmounts them.
The handle is an eagle resting upon the
temple. The whole is carved from a single
piece. The ferrule is a horse's foot with
miniature steel shoes.
The Keystone Legion No. 3, Select

Vienna, January 11. In the Lower
House of the Hungarian Diet to-day Count
Czaky, the new Minister ot Education, re
ferring to the Government's refusal to
insert a clause in the army bill
declaring it unnecessary to pass an
examination in German defended the Gov
ernment on the ground that its promise of
exemption, backed by the Emperor's prom
ise, was sufficient without the in
sertion of the clause referred to,
the adoption of which would lead
to a. similar demand on behalf of all the
Austrian provinces. He was interrupted
at this point by shouts of "Germanizer,"
"Germani Minister," etc.
Minister Czaky, however, continued,
coolly" saying: "The ability of the country
to defend' itself is a matter which takes
precedence of education. Every one is a
better Hungarian and a better patriot, the
better he knows German.'
Hereupon there arose a! deafening uproar
which lasted five minutes, but Count Czaky
stuck to his guns, and was eventually re
warded for his peristence by cheers of ap
proval from members of the Ministerial

Daring the Fresent Session, aid a Glance at the
Changes Eocbt For.
Students of transportation are watching
the meeting of the railroad Presidents at
New York. Congressmen believe that
obedience to the Inter-State Commerce law
on the part of the railroad managers would
lead to modifications in their favor. Judge
Cooley, however, does not think any relief
can be obtained at this session. The pend
ing amendments to the law, now before
Congress, are recalled, and are interesting
at this time.
rSPXCIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.1
Washington, January 10. The meet
ing of the railroad presidents with the
members of the Inter-State Commerce Com
mission is attracting a good deal of at
tention here, particularly among those who
have made the transportation problem a
study. It was a matter of the mountain
going to Mahomet when the commissioners
went to New York, but they preferred to do
so, as there was another matter over there
to be looked after.
The feeling is general among Congress
men that if the railway officials would
agree to obey the law strictly for a few
months, so that it might be seen whether it
required amendment, there would be
little difficulty in making the necessary
modifications. But it is claimed that the
law hasn't been literally obeyed for a
single month by any trunk line railroad
since it went into operation, and there is,
therefore, less spirit of concession than
there otherwise would be. Senator Cullom
expressed the prevailing sentiment to-day
when he said:
NO CHANCE FOR CHANGES.
"If the conference recommends changes in
the inter-State commerce law, I fear that
they will be disappointed. The condition
of legislation in both Houses is such
that it would be impossible to
get anything through at this session,
although it might be done if all the
parties concerned agreed unanimously, and
could show that it was absolutely necessary.
Of course I should feel bound to give earnest
consideration to any suggestions that may
come from this conference, but it seems to me
that the efforts of the gentlemen gathered in
New York might best be directed toward
securing an honest observance of the law by
their officers and agents. I believe that it
would be the most simple and effective way
of curing the troubles complained of. The
railroad presidents might compel their
subordinates to obey the law instead of vio
lating it, for a short time at least, as an ex
periment, just to se6 how it would woik."
"Have you been considering any amend
ment to the anti-pooling section?"
''I have been intending to take up the
snbject, and if agreeable to my colleagues
on thecommittee, call together some of the
best representatives of the several inter
ests the railroad managers, the stock
holders and the shippers to get their
judgment as to what improvement might be
made in the law, but I have been prevented
from so doing because the tariff bill has
absorbed all the time and attention of the
other members of the committee, as well as
my own. And I have hoped, too, that the
commission would institute such an inquiry
to ascertain what is necessary to be done,
and recommend it to Congress.
A HOPEFUL SIGN.
"I think one of the most hopeful signs of
the times is that the representatives of ihe
stockholders are becoming interested in the
subject, and are beginning to express their
views to managers of their property. I infer,
too, that the Presidents and man
agers are beginning to realize that
there is a law regulating inter-State com
merce, and I hope they will conclude that it
ought to be obeyed, so as to enable the law
makers of this country to ascertain what its
defects are and intelligently correct them.
There were several amendments to the
inter-State bill made at the last session of
Congress, which still lie in the hands of a
conlerence committee, consisting of Cul
lom, Piatt and Beagan on the part
of the Senate, and Crisp, O'Neill
and Anderson, of Kansas, on tbe
part of the House. The delay in
the passage of the bill is due to the refusal
of the Senate to agree to the amendments
made by the House. It amends the exist
ing law by requiring the railway cunpanles
to give public notice for ten days in advance
of the reduction of any rate, just as they
are now required to give notice
of anv increase in rates, which is
intended to give stability to th? tariff
schedules and retard the present tendency to
rate wars. The penalty for
VIOLATIONS OF THE LAW
is increased so as to include imprisonment
as well as fine. The practice known as un
derbilling is made a criminal offense, and
the shipper who deceives the carrier as to
the character or value of his goods, or en
deavors to secure a lower rate than he is
entitled to by underbilling his freight, is
punished by imprisonment as well as fine.
The section of the present law which
authorizes the commission to assess dam
ages was drawn by Senator Edmunds, and
received the sanction of the most eminent
lawyers of the Senate, but it has neverthe
less been declared unconstitutional by Judge
Cooley, and hasn't been enforced for that
reason. The pending bill modifies it to
meet Judge Cooley's views.
The Standard Oil amendment, as it is
called, which was attached to the bill at the
instigation of Mr. Eice, of Marietta, who
has been fighting that company for several
years, isalso objected to by the Senators be
cause it is in the nature of special legisla
tion, and they do not see why they should
make a law for the transportation o'f oil any
more than for the transportation of dressed
beef, or grain, or coal.
THE EAST AFRIfJAN EXPEDITION.
Germany Making Preparations to Send a
Strong Colonization Force.
Berlin, January 10. The introduction
of an East Africa bill in the Eeichstag will
probably be delayed in order that East
Africa travelers may be consulted before
the terms of the measure are settled.
Surgeon Schmalzkopf and Herr "Wolff
have withdrawn from the Emin relief expe
dition, which it is reported will be merged
in an Imperial expedition, with Lieutenant
Vissman in command.
Consul Vohsen, the German East Africa
Company's agent at Zanzibar, has been
summoned to Berlin to consult with the
officials of the company regarding the en
rollment of colonists. After the passage of
the East Africa bill several retired officers
hitherto in the service of the company will
join Lieutenant "Wissman's colonial corps.
Natives at Linde recently fired upon a
man-of-war boat which they supposed to be
German. Upon learning that the boat be
longed to an Enclish war ship they apolo
gized for their mistake.
An International Cable.
London, January 11. The Anglo-Belgic
Telegraph Convention provides that on the
expiration of the concession to the Sub
marine Telegraph Company the cables will
be worked by the two countries, and that no
further concession will be granted to private
persons. The rates will be 2d. per word.
THE READING HORROR.
Continued from First Page.
for her, and as she didn't come, thought she
had gone to visit some friends. Later she
learned of tbe accident, and was about to
rush off to the scene of the disaster, when
she was met at the door by people bearing
her daughter, the upper part of whose body
was crushed black from congestion' and
smeared with blood aud mortar dust. The
screams of the mother at this gruesome sight
aroused the whole neighborhood. She was
carried to her-bed, where she remains, ut
terly prostrated by the terrible shock.
An instance somewhat the opposite of
this is that of Enoch Savior, who thought
he recognized a body taken out from the
ruins as that of one his daughters, and had
it taken home in one of the patrol wagons.
"When he came to his house and was about
to have the bedy carried in, he was met at
the door by both of his daughters, who were
alive and well.
David Nester, of New Einggold, Schuyl
kill county, whose daughter was employed
in the mill, hearing of the accident, came
down to look after her. He had hardly ar
rived at the place when his daughter, who
was the last victim recovered, was carried
out crushed out of all human shape.
THE EXTREMITY OF ANGUISH.
Nothing could be more significant to the
extremity of the anguish of some of the poor
bereaved creatures who had lost their loved
ones by the disaster than the frenzied excla
mation of a woman who walked up and down
among the crowds last night, with clenched
hands, exclaiming aloud in a mixture of
grief and wrath:
"There is no God. A good and wise God
would not allow such a thing as this."
During the day m3ny people began to
carry away pieces of machinery and bales of
raw "silk, which were scattere'd among the
ruins, in order to prevent as well as
interfere with the work of search.
The Beading artillery were called to the
aid of the police, and formed a cordon
around tbe rnins, forbidding anyone to pass.
They are guarding the ruins to-night. Cor
oner Hoffman to-day empaneled two juries,
one of the silk mill and the t other of the
paint shop. He will begin his investiga
tions to-morrow. He will make it thorough
and ascertain definitely.

THE DITEE'S ARMAMENT.
The Complicated Apparatus Vied by the
Tollers of the Sea.
From the nelmet projects a coil of snake
like rubber hose, a sort of antenna, which
passes down under his left arm and up
through the water, connecting with an air
pump on a float-stage or in a boat, the pump
manipulated by two men, and iumishes
compressed air for breathing when under
water, which exhausts into the water by a
valve in the helmet, enabling him to
breathe continually fresh air(i while when
he comes to the surface the windows of his
helmet can be opened and he can breathe
without the assistance of the air pump.
"When he goes down into the water ne has
two means of communicating with those
above, the hose and tbe life line. By the
latter he also descends and comes up when
necessary. By each of these he gives and
receives signals mutually understood, three
sharp pulls on the life line indicating that
he is ready to ascend. In order to overcome
the natural buoyancy of his body and make
its specific gravity such that he can readily
walk about on the bottom of the sea he
wears shoes with soles heavily ballasted or
weighted with lead.
The upper part of his body is protected,as
is also his lower half, by heavy canvas cov
ering, consisting of jacket with sleevs and
pantaloons with terminations which fit
closely with elastic bands clinging to his
flesh, the jacket fitted closely to the helmet
with metallic bands bolted together, with a
rubber gasket, between. No water or air
can get to him, except the latter bv the hose,
unless he opens the glass window of his
helmet, which he is not likely to do unless
occasion requires. Additional weizht is
placed at his chest and back; sometimes
a breast-plate and a shoulder-plate of lead,
sometimes a belt heavily weighted which
can be thrown on or off the shoulders and
hang down in front aud behind when in
BISMAKCK AHD MOEIEE.
The Affair Still Causing Considerable Trou
ble nnd Talk in Europe.
Beelin, January 10. There is a well
founded report that Prince Bismarck will
touch upon the Morier and Geffcken inci
dents during the coming debate on East
The Deutsche Wochenblatt, a free Con
servative, declares that Prince Bismarck's
report on the Geffcken affair resulted in his
defeat, and that the Morier incident is a
still uglier echo of the diary affair. Tnines
have gone so far, it says, that the continu
ance of Morier at St. Petersburg will be a
severe blow to German diplomacy and diffi
cult to explain away.
The Correspondence De L'Estt of Vienna,
has been confiscated for publishing a Berlin
letter inveighing against the conduct of
Germany in the Morier case and similar
The St. Petersburg Svet condemns the
apathy of the Russian press regarding the
attacks upon Sir Robert Morier as showing
a lack of the hospitality which the British
Ambassador should enjoy as long as he re
tains Russian esteem.
THE AKD0YEE HERESY.
The Supremo Conrt of Massachusetts Mar
Compel Seelye to Tnlk.
Andovek, January 10. Ex-Governor
George D. Robinson, sitting as Commis
sioner for the Supreme Conrt, resumed to
day the hearing in the famous heresy case
in Prof. Smyth's appeal against the decision
confirming his removal by the Board of Vis
itors of the Andover Seminary from his
chair in that institntion. Several wit
nesses were examined as to the various steps
that led to the noted ecclesiastical trial and
the persons most active in the movement
against Prof. Smyth and the other professors
accused of teaching a new theology namely,
the possibility of probation after death and
the fallibility of the Bible.
The most interesting point in the hearing
was Commissioner Robinson's decision to
report to the Supreme Court the refusal on
Friday last of President Seelye, of Amherst
College, to answer certain questions, with a
view to ascertaining if he can be compelled
to answer. The hearing was adjourned,
pending the answer of the Supreme Court.

Capture of a Big Sea Horse.
Foet Morgan, Ala., January 10. This

After a great deal of trouble he succeeded in
getting it on the beach, and now has it in the
