TALK ABOUT MITCHELL AXD DEMPSEY
An unexpected bitch has occurred in
, the proposed arrangements lor the
"Western trip of the local club next
spring. The hitch may prove fatal to the
trip, and an Eastern journey may be under
taken instead. The matter wiil not be
fully determined until Saturday. The cir
cumstances were fully explained by Man
ager Phillips yesterday altcrnoon. During
a conversation he said:
"So far I have been unable to secure suit
able dates anions the "Western clubs, and
unless we can obtain dates that will keep
us busy during our trip it will not pay to
undertake it. Secretary Scandrctt has
written several letters for mo to-day and sent
several dispatches away to the 'Western clubs
this afternoon, and as soon as the replies to
some of them reach me we will know definitely
what our programme ot exhibition games will
be. Of coarse we have secured some good
dates out West, bat tie need more.
THE STUMBLISG BLOCK.
St. Louis is the stumbling block. We will go
East if we don't go West. Wc can have games
with Brooklyn and Baltimore and other clubs.
If we go East we will open the general season
here sooner than expected, because we will bo
unable to arrange dates to keep us in the East
mntil April 12. At present the arrangement is
to commence play on the home grounds on
April 13 with Detroit. This arrangement, how
ever, will only be carried out it we go "West.
If we go East we will make dates with some
other clubs to precede Detroit here. The truth
is there is considerable difficulty in obtaining
clubs to come here in the early Part of April.
1 have written several clubs and received no
Secretary Scandrctt, in a brief talk, said that
in his opinion St. Louis would not be a profit
able city to visit except (Sunday games are
played. Pittsburg's club will not do this. The
Secretary went on to say that St. Louis is re
markable for giving out exaggerated accounts
as to the attendance at the cames. He said: "It
is not unusual for a crowd of 4.000 to be esti
mated at 10.000." Mr. Scandrctt further ex
pressed the opinion that it will be necessary to
have a meeting of club officials dunnc this week
to take definite action on the spring exhibition
games. The desire is to play as many games as
possible away from home so that too manymay
sot have to be played here.
SENSATIONAL BEPOBTS DENTED.
During yesterday afternoon reports were
published to the effect that the local club was
making efforts to sign "Deacon" White along
with Rowe. The reports went on to state that
'White docs not want to go to Boston and will
come here with Rowe providing Boston's
claims on his services can be purchased bv
Pittsburg. It nas further stated that the local
club had been informed that Dunlap's ankle
was not strong and that he is not inclined to
play. Thee tacts, it was stated, had prompted
the local officials to try and secure White.
Two or three reporters tried to see President
Nimick to talk to him on the matter, but he
unceremoniously gave them the "cold shoul
der," evidently not caring whether the press or
the public obtained the truth of tlie matter or
not. Manager Phillips although, however, put
himself to considerable trouble to explain the
wnnle matter. He said:
"The entire story has been caused bv a harm
less remark made by Secretary Scandrett.
During a general conversation with some
friends he had expressed the opinion that
"White would be a good man for the tem, and
that be might be secured alone lth Howe.
He bad no idea. however, that White would
ever get here. We nave never tried to get him,
and h e do not intend to try. The truth is I
don't think the Bostons would allow him to go
to any club outside of their own. He has not
treated Boston very weU and that club may be
disposed togranthim no privileges. Of course
we would take White if we could get him, and
if nobody else wanted him.
"No, regarding Dunlaplet me say that I had
a letter from him yesterday. His ankle is, ac
cording to his opinion, as good as it ever was,
and it certainly will be news to him to know
that it is permanently iniured. Dunlan will be
here and T.'ill play the entire season with us if
no more accidents occur. Sow, this is the true
condition of things. We have not tried to get
White nor have we thought of it."
Manager Phillips is once more on a fair way
of recovery and expects to be out enjoying the
fresh air in two or three weeks.
THE SCHEDULE MEETING.
It Will be Held on Mnrch 5 President
IEFXCIAt. TELEGIIAM TO TUB DISPATCH.l
Washington, January 16. President N. E.
Young to-day issued a formal call for the
schedule meeting of the League to be held at
the Arlington Hotel, Washington. D. C, on the
6:h of March next, which is Tuesday following
the inauguration of President-elect Harrison.
It was ongina'ly intended that the schedule
meeting should be held Friday, March 1, but
owing to the great crowd expected here to
participate in the inauguration ceremonies, de
sirable accommodation for the League magnates
at the time is unobtainable. The date fixed
appears to be agreeable to all concerned, and it
will not conflict with the arrangements certain
gentlemen connected with the League have
made for attending the inauguration. The
Secretary or the League to-day issued the
following bulletin of League changes January

LOOKS BLUE FOR HOMEWOOD.
An official of tbe Pnrk Makes an Importnnt
It is now a fact no longer to be concealed
that tbe prospects of the Homewood Driving
Park for next season are not of the brightest.
An official of that very laudable organization
made a very important statement last evening
regarding tbe matter. He said:
"In onr opinion we are convinced that the
proposed amendment to the pool-selling law of
the State will not benefit Homewood tracK
v ery much. Even with tbe amendment we will
not be able to sell pools in the city, and
that was our great stronghold. On
the night before each day's racing
the biggest pools of our meetings were sold.
We couldn't counterbalance this loss by any
means, because to soil pools on the track either
in the evening or in the morning would be a
failure. Wc would have scarcelv anybody at
the selling. I fear that tbe circumstance will
interfere almost fatally with the track.
The directors of tbe park were summoned to
meet this evening on important business, but
tbe meeting has been deferred on account of
the inability of one or two members to attend.

He Pays Ills Respects to Derapsey
Jack Dempsey has called Mitchell a "cow
ardly bluffer." Here is Mitchell's reply made
a few hours before leaving New York on his
visit to England:
"My position touching the Dempsey-Mitchell
controversy can be clearly defined as follows:
"First I was anxious to fight John L. Sulli
van in prefence to any other man in the world,
because he was said to be the greatest living
pugilist. I was matched to fight him and the
press stated, and the public believed I would
never dare to fight him. but I did fight him in
France and he was not able to defeat me. The
public knows that he and bis seconds coaxed
one of my seconds to get me to consent to a
draw. The people can draw their own infer
ence from this contest with Sullivan as to who
the winner wonld have been if the fight had
"In this fight with Sullivan I broke my left
hand in the third round. .Since then I have
not dared to make a match to fight to a finish
with any man. My inability in this respect has
given Mr. Jack Dempsey and his supporters an
opportunity to say that I was afraid to fight
that gentleman to a finisn. Mr. Dempsey has
posed before the public as if he had defeated
me in the ring. I now state that I have care
fully nursed my injured hand in order to ac
commodate him with a fight to a finish, but I
regret that after consulting an eminent sur
geon (Prof. E. L. Keves). I cannot make sach
a match. Here I Dr Keycs' letter:
No. I Pakk Avexue, New York. January 15,
18S9. I am of the opinion, after examining the
left hand of Mr. Charle; Mitchell, that the result
of the Injury received is as good as can be ex-
pectpa, ana mat any surgical attempt io oeucrii
'woutd probably do more" harm than good. Any
furtbci betterment must be watted for as the
ellect of rest, time and whatever may come about
from the conservative processes of nature.
E. L. KETE8.
"In conclusion, I wish to state that 1 have
made many efforts to get Mr. Dempsey to
box with me with small gloves a sufficient
number of rounds to show the public who is
the better man.
"My contest with Mr. Sullivan, who was con
sidered the pugilistic marvel of the nineteenth
century, ought to be sufficient proof that I am
not afraid to fight such a man as Mr. Dempsey
if, to use a sporting term. I had the tools
namely, good hands. I will add. that if Mr.
Dempsey is willing, I will box him 20 or SO
rounds with skin gloves when I return in the
spring, whether my hands improve or not.
DE3IPSEY AND McCAFFREY.
Tho Nonparicl's Strange Offer to Meet tbo
Jack Dempsey evidently thinks that he has
had enough of Dominick McCaffrey, as far as
"sparring for points" is concerned. The "Non
panel" refuses to meet McCaffrey except in a
fight to a finish. The reason is that there is no
"place to spar" now. This is interesting news
to the public, and would be instructive if thcro
was sound logic behind it. All sporting people
would like to know where it is possible to fight
to a finish where a contest of limited rounds is
denied, even if the latter is for points only.
Most certainly it is reasonable to expect that
authorities, fnends.or whatever the power-that-be
may be, will tolerate a scientific contest If
they will allow a thorough-going slagging en
counter. Without doubt this latest state
ment of Mr. Dempsey is hard to understand.
But Jack Dempsey makes even a more re
markable statement than that. He is quoted
as saying: "The rough and tumble fights have
haa their effect, and scientific boats have to
suffer for them." It is strange that Dempsey
would say this, and yet as a public entertainer
court a fight to a finish,whicn ordinarily means
two men pounding almost the life and soul out
of each other. However, the sequel to the
entire matter is that those "f oarrinc contests"
that yielded thousands of unearned dollars of
public money to the contestants are not so fre
quently permitted now as heretofore because
of their shallowness. As a result we hear of
desires and intentions to fight bona-fide prize
lights in a country where everybody knows the
laws prohibit them. It really, at this period,
inteiestmg to refresh one's memory with tho
writings of Pierce Egan, which refer to times
real prizefighting, and that only, was popular,
to find that pugilists were so few, and scan the
newspapers of to-day, amid platform and stage
exhibitions, to find that pugilists are so numer
ous. Howe's Latest Blnfl.
Jack Rowc's latest refers to President
Ximick's offer to bet that Rowe will play in
He sajs: "Neither White nor myself will
leave Buffalo under any circumstances. I seo
that President Nimick, of Pittsburg, is re
ported as saying that he will give odds that I
am to play there next season. Well, he can do
no better than shed his money in Buffalo if
that's what he is betting. He can find at least
one taker. However, I have nothing against
the'Pittsburg Club or President Nimick, ex
cept that I not going to play there. We signed
Andrasand Rainey top.ayin the infield in
case White and myself cannot plav, but we
will keep tbem in any event. They are both
fine plavers. Andrus is one of the quickest
men in the business in getting to first base, and
both men are powerlul hitters."
On tbe Pnvlng Plan.
Elmer Smith, the famous Pittsburg pitcher,
now under reserve by the Cincinnati team,
talked about baseball matters yesterday after
noon. He said: "I don't think any of the old
players in onr team will sign nntil the spring.
The object of this is to save advance money.
The directors are becoming economical, and
they will sign us in tbe latter part of April,
when thev may give ns about SjO or 100 each to
practice for a few weeks."
Elmer is looking as bright as a new dollar
and is full of vigor.

Ferity of the Billot a Question Which Most Not be

rsrrcuu. tilt-qham to toe sisfatch.i
Indianapolis, January 16. General
Harrison has completed that part of his in
augural address that refers to the South. It
is not very long nor yet very sensational,
but it is to the point In the address it will
be combined with the Territorial subject
and the election reform subject, and the
underlying' theme of the whole matter will
be the necessity for a tree and fair ballot.
The principle of control by the majority,
General Harrison says, is the bottom prin
ciple, corner stone or foundation of tbe
structure of development of the American
people. Everything else about the govern
ment he calls mere oramentation. The ques
tion of a free and equal ballot he declares is
a dominant one embracing all others, be
cause it involves the question of a free and
fair tribunal to which every question shall
be submitted for arbitration and final de
termination. He warns the people that this principle
of Government by a majority expressed by
a free and equal ballot is not only
threatened, but has been to a great extent
overturned; that not only have the rights of
free citizenship been abrogated to a certain
extent, but that the matter has gone so far
that the industries of the country and the
welfare and prosperity of the workingmen
dependent, to an extent, upon those in
dustries, have been threatened because the
laboring vote in a large part of the country
SUPPRESSING THE COLORED VOTE.
As to the South directly, he says that no
one wishes ill to that section; that, on the
contrary, it is the desire of every good citi
zen that her prosperity shall not only be
maintained but shall increase, "that the
stream of her prosperity shall run full," as
the President elect once expressed it public
ly. It is not a question, he insists, of what
has occurred once upon a time, but of what
is occurring now. This is, he states, the
almost entire suppression of the colored Re
publican vote at the South upon national
questions, by which is manufactured a ma
jority that has kept out of the Union a vast
community ot free, intelligent and local cit
izens who have been for years petitioning
for admission to the privileges of lull citi
zenship. The question is not a Southern
one, he allesres, but a national one.
He finds especially deplorable tbe evi
dence on every hand that tbe persistent sup
pression 01 me votes, 01 tue worisingmen in
one section of the country has demoralized
the trust in the sanctity of the ballot. The
general belief that corrupt and improper in
fluences have come to have a great influence
in determining the results even of Presi
dental elections, the tally sheet forgeries
and similar crimes in many States outside
of the South, the revolutionary proceeding
in other States whereby duly elected officers
have been prevented from exercising the
functions for which the people had chosen;
the evidences of the danger that threatens
free institutions through the failure of gen
eral faith in the fairness of the ballot.
orrosED to gerrymandering.
The practice of gerrymandering States' in
Congressional and Legislative apportion
ments for the purpose of suppressing the
majority and giving to the minority a
power and influence in legislative bodies to
which it is not entitled will also, probably,
be referred to in this connection, although
this part of the address has not yet been
A previous reference of the President
elect to this subject, which embodies the
idea that he will put into his inaugural ad
dress, was: "Tbe equality of the ballot de
mands that onr apportionments in States for
Legislative and Congressional purposes
shall be so adjusted that there shall be an
equality in the influence and in the power
of every elector, so that it shall not be true
anywhere that one man counts for two or
one and one-half and some other man
counts for only one half."
In the same line were some remarks he
made only a short time before he was nomi
nated, which, although of a nature im
proper to be put into an inaugural address,
vet, will better than a summary of the
language of the inaugural itself indicate
the spirit in which the General Harrison's
references to the South and to election re
forms generally are conceived.
"There may he legislative remedies in
Eight when we can once again possess both
branches of tbe National Congress and
have an Executive at Washington who has
not been created by these crimes against the
ballot Whatever they are, we will seek
thjem out and put them into force. Not in a
spirit of enmity against the men who
fought against us forgetting the war,
but only insisting that now,
nearly a quarter of a century after
it is over, a free ballot shall not be denied
to the Republicans in those States where
rebels have been rehabited with full citizen
ship. Every question wa the settlement of
this. The tariff question would be settled
already if the 6,000,000 of black laborers in
the South had their due representation in
the House of Representatives."
There will be other references to the South
in the inaugural address in the part that
deals with the tariff question, and they will,
it is understood, be of a nature to please
what has come to be known as the "business
element" of this section, but they have all
to be perfected.
THE INAUGURAL UNFINISHED.
None of the address will be absolutely
finished nntil a few days before it is deliv
ered, certainly not until after the President
elect has gone to "Washington. "What is
being done now is the drafting of the vari
ous sections separately. They will be joined
together and the verbiage smoothed out and
perfected afterward. Another part of the
address that is pretty well under way is the
part dealing with civil service reform, and,
contrary' to the views of his friend, Lew
Wallace, the President-elect, will flirt gid
dily with the Chinese goddess of whom the
mugwumps are the high priests.
Whatever he may do in practice, in his
address General Harrison will give utter
ance to sentiments upon the subject of office
and office holders that need not call the blush
of shame to thecheekeven of George William
Curtis. Hoosier politicians who are close
to him affirm, however, that his affection for
the almond-eyed first cousin to the famous
star-eyed dame of Kentucky is purely pla
tonic, and will not worry him any after the
address is tied np with red tape and laid
away in the executive archives.

SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO TUB DISPATCH
Greensburg, Pa., January 16. The
trial of Nicholas Backus for the murder of
James Green at Scott Haven, four months
ago, was begun in the court here this morn
ing. The case is making very little head
way, and will, in all probability, consume
the time of the court until Saturday. There
were four witnesses for the prosecution ex
amined to-day, the most important being
Terry Donnelly, who testified that he saw
Backus approach Green with a butcher
knife drawn, and although he did not see
the stabbing, he saw Green fall, and when he
examined him a moment afterward he dis
covered he was dead.
The other witnesses testified that while
they were present at the dance and witnessed
disturbance between the guests, they did not
see the defendant have a knife or approach
Green. The counsel for the defendant will
endeavor to prove that the murder was com
muted by another member of the party, who
it is alleged was seen to run away from the
vicinity of the row just after Green fell.
QUIETLY LAID AWAY.
The Lust Sad Rites Over tbo Remains of
Sirs. Jay Gould.
New York, January 16. Every effort
was made to-day by the sorrowing members
of the Gould family to have the funeral
services of Mrs. Jay Gould conducted as
quietly and privately as possible. The body
was laid in the front parlor. It was
encased in a plain, black cloth-covered
casket, with unique silver handles.
Flowers were scattered over the
lid of the casket, and at its head and foot
were floral emblems. Qn the silver plate
was the inscription, "Helen Day Gould."
The attendance at the service was not large.
Mr. Jay Gould did not appear among his
friends, but remained with his family in
one of the recesses of the stairway just above
where the services were conducted.
About an hour after the services the re
mains were taken to Woodlawn Cemetery
for interment.- Following the hearse was a
carriage fcontaining Mr. Jay Gould and

WHITE CAPS IN NEW ENGLAND.
A Victim Una Thirteen of Them Arrested
North Salem, N. H., January 16.
John Welsh had been living somewhat in
discreetly, and "White Caps" called him to
the door of his, house on Christmas night,
carried him a short distance, removed his
clothing, coated him with grease and lamp
black, and forced from him a promise to
leave town, taking upon themselves to see
that the promise was kept.
Welsh went to Portsmouth, and informed
a lawyer of th&outrage, and the lawyer en
gaged the services of the Pinkerion detective
agency in Boston, which sent a detail of
men to work up the case. This has resulted
in the arrest of 13 of the "White Caps."
They were finned $15 and costs eacb, which

WAGES WILL HATE TO BE BEATJUSTED
la Order to Meet the Other Changes In the General
rSrxCIAI. TELEGRAM TO TUX DISPATCH.
Washington, January 16. "I am
sorry I have no cheering news to give you,"
said Mr. Frank L. Bodine, of Philadelphia,
the handsome and genial President of the
Association of Window Glass Manufact
urers, "for I know you would rather print
good news than bad, but there is nothing
encouraging to say in regard to the situa
tion. If you will talk to a glass manufact
urer yon will find you are talking to a man
who is feeling pretty blue. We did abso
lutely nothing at our meeting to-day but
simply hear reports and discuss the condi
tion of business. Everybody agreed it was
bad, and not a single resolution looking to
a remedy was introduced.
"We can't do anything. We must sim
ply wait for the problem to work: itself out.
Glass manufacturers are losing mdney.
They lost heavily during the last year. It
is very plain that something must drop if
we go on increasing the manufacture away
beyond the point of consumption, with for
eign competition growing fiercer and fiercer
every year, and the tariff not high enough to
check the impetus."
"Look at these figures," continued Mr.
Bodine, taking up a little book. "Here you
will see that from 1880 to 1888 there was an
increase of from 700 to over 1,200 pots in
actual operation. The product of the blast
of last year is 200,000 boxes greater than
that of the previous year, and that is all in
the hands of the manufacturers. Of course,
the consumption increased also, but uot to
keep pace with the production. The con
sumption of both the American and the im
ported article wnsvery large last year, but
the prices were ruinous on account of the
great output and the immense importations.
"The increase of importations last year
over the previous year was 120,000 boxes,
and the total exportations amount
ed to more than 750,000 boxss, which
is 37 per cent of the entire consump
tion. The stock in the hands of the Ameri
can manufacturers is 550,000 boxes, as
against 350,000 boxes for the previous year.
No, a higher tariff alone will not solve the
problem. The tariff is already high. We
must curtail the product and sell cheaper
glass, iio w to ao that we have not devised.
We are selling cheap now, but it is at a
loss. We must sell cheap and make a
"While we do not want low wages, it is
my impression that there will have to be a
rearrangement ot wages. There has been
no material change in this department since
tha great advance of seven or eight years
ago, and I think it will soon have to take
its share of the burden involved in the
changed conditions. Yes, I fancy the busi
ness suffers very much the same drawbacks
in nil its departments. Perhaps tbe flint
bottle trade is somewhat of an improvement
over the others."
"Have the manufacturers who nse nat
ural gas any great advantage over those who
do not?" asked The Dispatch reporter.
"Well, in some respects tbey have an
advantage, but I do not think it is what
was expected in the beginning of the use of
that gas. There are many other things to
consider. Most of the increase, in fact
nearly all of it, in the number of pots in
operation, which I have cited to you, is in
the natural gas territory west of Pittsburg,
principally in Ohio and Indiana. When
the movement began in that direction I
went and looked into the matter carefully
to see it j. wouiu oe justined in.transrerring
my business to that field, and I decided not
to do it." ,. , r ' -

Washington, January 16. The Senate

the consideration of the census bill. The

suggestions made by Carroll D. Wright,
Commissioner of Labor, Major William

That la What Indiana Legislators Call Each
Other The Republican Leader Slay
bo Expelled Fierce Po
Indianapolis, January 16. In the
House to-day the Democratic majority
adopted a set of rules which put a decided
limit to the power of the minority to ob
struct desired legislation. The Eepublican
members denounced the new rnles as gag
law, and made a vigorous and unavailing
fight against their adoption.
At the afternoon session of the Senate,
dnring the discussion of the resolution pro
viding for the appointment of 20 additional
doorkeepers, an exciting scene took place.
Senator Johnson, the Republican leader,
was vigorously opposing the resolution on
the grounds that the statute provided for
only seven assistants to the Doorkeeper, all
of whom were already appointed, and that
the additional 20 were unnecessary. He
offered an amendment providing that the
20 assistants should be ex-Federal soldiers.
In the midst of Johnson's argument Sen
ator Smith, from Huntington, said:
"You are the man that struck an old sol
dier at the previous session."
Johnson retorted that the statement was
unqualifiedly without foundation. Senator
Griffith, sitting near Johnson, said: "It is
true," whereupon Johnson, suffused with
rage, turned upon Griffith and gave him the
lie direct. Many Senators rose in their
seats, and the scene was dramatic and excit
ing. Lieutenant Governor Chase, however, pre
served order and t sustained Johnson's
motion, that the resolution was contrary to
statute and consequently out of order. The
Senate, however, on appeal, overruled
Chase, and the resolution, with the soldier
amendment, was adopted by a strictly party
vote. Senator Griffith apologized to the
Senate tor his language maintaining his
assertion was truthful but ill-timed.
Senator Johnson followed with a scathing
speech, defying Griffith to repeat his lan
guage outside the Senate chamber, and
boldly denouncing him. He made no apol
ogy either to the Senate or to any member.
In legislative circles to-night the quarrel is
the sole topic, and there is serious talk of a
resolution being introduced to-morrow to
expel Senator Johnson, which, if carried,
will cost tbe Republicans their most ag

THE LEGAL PHASES OF IT.
The question of equity jurisdiction was
raised and discussed before me. There is no
specific prayer for relief in tbe bill, except the
prayer for an injunction. It may be that the
Court, after obtaining equity jurisdiction by
reason of tbe necessity for an injnnction.
might proceed to adjudicate the ownership of
the funds concerning which the injunction was
issued, under the general prayer for equitable
relief adapted to the circumstances of the case:
but I take it that, if there is no equitable right
to be protected by the injunction, the Injunc
tion itself was improperly Issued, and should
not be continued.
Tbe only allegation I can find in the bill that
could be so construed as to bring the bill within
any of the grounds for the jurisdiction of a
court of equity, as laid down in the Fennsyl
vaniastatutes, are the allegations of the fraud,
collusion and conspiracy of -McClure, Frey
vogle and Quinn to defraud the plaintiff of bis
money, and I presume it was on the strength of
these allegations that the Conrt granted the
preliminary injunction. The solicitor for the
plaintiff very properly insisted that the Court,
having once recognized the propriety of the
remedy by issuing the preliminary injunction,
it was not for the Master to qnestion it: bnt
whereas in this case tho Conrt took jurisdic
tion on the strength of the allegations in tbe
bill which were not proven, and which no ef
forts whatever were made to prove, but which,
on the contrary, were found both by the plain
tiff's and defendant's evidence to be
ENTIRELY UNFOUNDED IN FACT,
I consider it the duty of the Master to find
that, upon the plaintiff's case as presented be
fore him, a court of equity has no jurisdiction
of tho subject matter of the suit, and I there
fore so find.
As I remarked before, the bill does not pray
for an adjudication of the ownership of tbe
fund in tbe Duquesne National Bank; but on
the bearing it was claimed that it should be
decreed to the plaintiff. I do not think It
should be awarded to the plaintiff, because'
First I do not think there is sufficient evi
dence to show that any portion of it was ever
tbe plaintiff's money.
Second If it had been the money of the
plaintiff, I do not think a court of equity has
any power or jurisdiction in tnls case to decree
that tho bans should pay said money to the
I am, therefore, of the opinion that the pre
liminary injunction should be dissolved, and
that the bill should ne dismissed at tbe cost of
the plaintiff, and I submit herewith a form of
decree to that effect.
Henrt A. Davis, Master.
January 16, 1889.
This decision will be augmented in in
terest by a knowledge of the fact that Frey
vogle andMcClure's friends are doing all in
their power to secure Executive pardon for
them from the excessive sentence to the
workhonse, which was imposed largely,
without a doubt, because the Court believed
tbem guilty of the conspiracy from which
they are now legally absolved.
