GENERAL SPORTING NEWS OP THE DAT
There is considerable uncertainty regard
ing how the local teams will be made np
next season. Judging from the expressions
of the club officials there are any amount of
possibilities and probabilities. It may be
that another first class catcher will be
secured, and that Miller will put most of
his time in as a right field player. At any
rate efforts have already been made to secure
another good catcher. Manager Phillips
sied considerable light on the condition of
affairs yesterday during a long conversation.
"Certainly wo have been trying for another
good catcher. We have made offers for
Mters, of the Indianapolis team, and have gone
to far as to offer to trade Carroll for him. The
Hoosiers, however, arc not deposed to let US
have Mjers. He is owned by the League, of
course, ana to get him we would have to ask
the permission of the entire League, but I
think we could manago that part of it if Indian
apolis would consent to deal with us."
won't pakt -with STALEY.
It was suggested to the manager that In
dianapolis needs pitchers, and that Staley
might be given for Bojle and Myers. To this
Mr. Phillips replied:
"Well, I have a very high opinion of Staley
as a pitcher and not a very good one of Bojle.
I don't think the latter will be a vcrv valuable
man this year At any rate we w ill not think of
parting with Staley. It is a fact, however, that
good catchers are very hard to get. Theie does
not seem to be any appreciable increase in their
numbers. The League did not develop any
lastjear,,andcenamoiigthe old ones there
are very, icry lew wno are nrst class
behind the bat and also good throw
ers to bases. Of coarse. Buck Eiug
is an exception. People may talk about the
Ehortcomings of Carroll and Miller as throwers,
hut if we look round we will discover many
prominent plajers like them. Wc want an
other first-class man. I have great faith in
Lauer. and I really oxpect great things from
him. We will gne F'ehU and him a. thorough
test, and if the are successful we may assign
Miller to right field.
"If Rowe does not come here we will play
Kuehne at short and Smith at third. I think
that Kuehne and Dunlap will set along better
together than Smith and Dunlap. We all
think a great deal of Smith, but he has ex
pressed himself lately in letters in a way that
Beems very ungenerous."
SOMETHING ABOUT DUNLAP.
Mr. Phillips' attention was drawn to a state
ment published in a Philadelphia paper to the
effect that Dunlap has stated he will not only
be captain in name next season but also in
Mr. Phillips in reply said: "1 saw the state
ment and I have just written Dunlap to-day
asking him uhat he means by it- I think it is
uncalled for, because it leaves people to infer
that his autboritv as captain was interfered
with Ian j ear. There really is no reaon for
any such opinion or statement. It may be that
Dunlap has been misrepresented. However, I
want him to explain the circumstance to me."
Regarding the St. Louis games Mr. Phillips
said: "I see by the St. Louis papers that Von
der Abe is alrcadv figuring on what batteries
lie will put in sgainU us bo as to pulverize us.
AVell, I will give them a dose of Conway. I
think tbev Mill find hinino easy mark, and if
he is in good condition he may pitch two of the
ithout doubt some of the above statements
are of great importance and of mucn mteicst
to pations of the local club. That the officials
arc so anxious to have another good catcher
will be somewhat of a surprise. The great
anxiety diplajcd also tends to mean that an
other will be secured, and if this is done Miller
will probably become a right fielder. This would
indicate that both Maul and Coleman would
likely bedispo-edof. The change.assuming that
a good catcher was signed, would undoubtedly
be a good one, as Miller has already proven that
be is an excellent outfielder. However, as Mr.
Phillips int mated ete'day. many experi
ments wiJI be made before the nine is an thine
like permanently placed. This indicates that
every possible effort will be made to have a

A FOREIGNER'!! OPINION.
What the Anitrnlinn Think of Baieball
Compared With Cricket.
In a long article on the American ball players
the Melbourne Age, after arguing that base
ball will not supplant cricket in Australia, says:
"Baseball, which has already been fully de
scribed, is unmistakably a pamo which can only
be skillfully played after diligent practice, a
fact which was clearly indicated by the abortive
attempts made by several well-known cricket
ers to master it after the match had ben con
cluded. So far as the pitchlnc is conwrned,
notwithstanding skilled pitchers are able to
deliver curving and dropping balls, which are
ery deceptive, there does not appear to be the
same development of scientific skill which per
tains to bowling in cricket; and similar com
parison may in all fairness be made respecting
the batting. While cricket enables a batsman
to perfect the placing of a ball to the exact po
sition intended by the well-timed application of
the bit's flat face, there must in baseball be a
considerable element of fluke as to the direc
tion taken by the balk the point of contact
between a spherical missile and a round bat or
club being very minute, and the slight
est mistake in timing or in accuracv must
cane the substitution of a "foul fly" for a
"safe hit." Itmust.however.be allowed that
the American exponents of the gamo get fairly
on to the ball (pitched very much faster than
anxone could bowl) with their baseball bats
with extraordinary power and precision, con
sidering the manifest disadvantage under
wliich the batsman labors. In cricket it is
urged that the batsman has an undue advantage
over the bowler; but in baseball it is incontro
vertibly otherwise in fact, just the opposite.
That the game could be rendered much more
scientific by decreasing the advantage at pres
ent enjojed to an undue extent by the pitcher,
there can be little doubt; but as the handicap
under which the batsman now labors is the di
rect cause of that continual change which is
claimed as a specially attractive feature of the
game, any innoation of the kind suggested
would probably be received with disfavor by
Americans, who like the "go" of the existing
game. In years to come, when possibly high
pressure may not be so cbaractenstic of the
times, lovers of baseball may perhaps consent
to such alterations in the laws which govern
the pitcher and the batsman as may be clearly
shown to be improvements. It would seem to
be quite possible to very greatly improve the
game by extending more advantages to the
batsman without running the least risk of mak
ing it too slow. There is a medium in every
thing, and, although tediousness is doubtless
distasteful to thcaverage spectator, and should
be avoided, baseball as it at present exists is
placd at an unnecessarily opposite extreme.
FOURTEEN FIERCE ROUNDS.
A Lively Prize Fight for S-00 Aside, Mar-
quls of Quccnsberry's Rules.
PJrECUI. TELEGRAM TO THK DISPATCII.t
New Yokk, January 28. A prize fight took
place at an early hour this morning on the turf
in the North Bergen woods between Charlie
Green, of New York, and Johnnie Walk of
Boston. The battle was for J200 a side.
Fourteen desperate rounds were fought with
bare knuckles. The first seven rounds were
all in favor of Wall, and ho floored his man
several times with hard face blows. Green
kent pegging away with both hands
for the ribs, and in the third round
he scored a clean knockdown, with an upper
cut on ttie jaw. in tne latter part ot tne
seventh round Green apneared very weak, and
odds of 2 to 1 were offered on Wall. But Green
rallied in the following rounds and began to
force the fighting.
Wall was floored in the tenth and eleventh
rounds by blows on the neck. Both men were
covered with blood and their faces and bodies
showed manv bruises. In the fourteenth
round Wall did the leading, while Green kept
away as though he wished to tire his opponent
out. In the latter part of the ronnd Wall
forced Green to a corner of the ring and at
tempted to land his right on Green's head.
Green dodged the blow and Wall's hand came
in contact with a stake and several small bones
were broken, disabling Wall so that bis sec
onds threw np the sponge. The time of the
battle was 55 minutes.
It is said that the principals are well known
sporting men, and thattbe above names were
assumed. The fight was under the Marquis
of Queensberry rules. About 30 spectators
were present, including several prominent men
from North Hudson.

that the city pool sellers of Philadelphia and
this city have resolved to try and nave an

A gentleman interested in a local track, re
ferring to the matter jeterday, said: "I fear

this may create an unexpected opposition.

BY CABLE TO TITE DISrATCH.l
Pabis, January 28. Copyright. There
is no exciting Boulanger news to-day. The
General is very quiet, and the partisans
having indulged their fondness for sur
prises, are waiting to see what will resnlt
from their latest achievement. Just at
present things are running along in the us
Even the Chamber of Deputies was disap
pointing. At the opening every gallery was
crowded, in the hope of a big scene, which
didn't come. The General stayed at home
and the Boulangist and Monarchist Depu
ties soon tired of yelling over their victory,
and the sitting was of the dullest kind. The
interpellation, which was formerly post
poned for one montb, curiosly enough came
up for hearing just to-day, bat the Govern
ment put off answering it until Thursday.
"When it has been dealt with we can form
some opinion as to what is coming. g
AN ANXIOUS GOVERNMENT.
At their meeting after midnight the Min
isters deciaed, as cabled you this 4 A. m., to
put iheir resignation at President Carnot's
disposition. Carnot, who has a (steady
though not brilliant brain, in the Cabinet
meeting quoted their advice about treating
all happenings seriously, but none tragic
ally, and asked them to stick at their posts
and do their duty.
He said that after all Bonlanger had been
elected through shouting and printing
"vive la Jtepublique" more industriously
than anyone else. Every man who had
voted for Bonlanger had voted for Republic
if he believed Boulanger's protestations.
Therefore, their plain duty was to manage
the business of the country to the best of
their ability, and observe what was happen
ing. That latter phrase, in plain English,
means to watch for movements on Boulan
ger's part that will give an excuse for ar
resting him on a charge of conspiracy.
"Just let him move on," said an excited
member of the Government to-day, ''that's
all we want, but nntil he gives us an excuse
we dare do nothing, and he is so well ad
vised that he is sure to give the very mice a
lesson in quietness."
THE WINNING SIDE.
The Government are most worried as to
what will be the attitude of their followers
in the Chamber. There are signs to-day of
a tendency to desert to the rising power.
The Government must mature a plan
between now and Thursday to revive their
prestige and solidity their following, or go
by the board. "What will happen in that
event is hard to guess. Perhaps it will be a
parliamentary stampede to Boulanger, but
it is more lifely to be another attempt to
best him with the Government under
Clemencean's leadership. Another dispatch
says that Premier Floquet proposes to intro
duce in Parliament on Thursday next an
anti-Plebiscite measure, and a bill to re
establish the Scrntin d'Arrondissement
system. The Bureau of the Left desire the
introduction of both measures to-morrow in
order to block M. Jouvencal's proposed
The groups of the Right and the Boulang
ists have decided to take no initiative, but
to await the action of the majority.
A CONSEBVATITE IDEA.
The Tempt does not attempt to ignore the
importance of General Boulanger's triumph,
but at the same time it strenuously rejects
the idea of the adoption of exceptional
measures by the Government, or of rebel
ling against the popular verdict. General
Boulanger, it says, will not try to conspire
against the Republic, simplybecause he has
no need to do so. The electors, it believes,
voted chiefly, not against the Republic, but
against an incapable and impotent Chamber
It saysthat the system of election known
as Scrnt in d'Arrondissement ought to be
re-established, the budget for 1889 adopted,
and Parliamentadjourn until October, when
a general election will be held. In the
meantime, it says,, the country should
occupy itself solely in endeavors to promote
the success of the exhibition.
The same paper announces that M.
Floquet, if he remains in power, will in
troduce a bill to prevent plebiscitary in
trigue. The Journal Dcs Debats says that at a
meeting in the Rue Lincoln last night sev
eral Radical Deputies urged the formation
on the spot of a Ministry of action, which
should present itself in the Chamber of
Deputies immediately, and demand author
ity to prosecute General Boulanger for
treason. Many of those present opposed
the suggestion and the meeting dispersed at
4 o'clock this morning without coming to a
THE GENERAL TALKS.
In an interview to-day General Boulanger
said: "Instead of the Government treating
the election as ordinary incident of Parlia
mentary life they made out that the Repub
lic's future depended upon the result. If
thev have dug their own irrave I don't know
what to do. Ccatainly I will not help them
out of the mess, although I shall do nothing
to give color to the charge of my wishing to
make a disturbance.
"I did not go to the Chamber to-day be
cause I did not desire a demonstration. I
will show the people the Government
is the party of disorder while I personate
order. I shall wait and let the Government
act. Whatever they do is certain to help
me. Theyare blind."
General Bonlanger is in splendid spirits,
and shows no signs of fatigne. He con

evil augury for the French Republic The
North German Gazette says:
It is the most important event of recent
times in the domain of foreign politics. The
regime of the. Parliamentary Republic has suf
fered a sevre reverse in its own capital. The
defeat of the Government will probably lead to
all sorts of surprises.
The Post sees in the result of the election
proof that France is heartily sick of the
Republic. It says:
A government that has received such a blow
can no longer be regarded as a serious govern
ment. General Boulanger will not allow the
impression made by his victory to fade before
the general election takes place, as otherwise
tbe Government might by bold measures win
back the votes it bas lost. The centenary year
of 1SSU will not be behind its predecessors

Nevertheless, owing to the personal inade
quacy of Boulanger, it is doubtful whether tho
decisive blow is close at hand. But in any case
the Republic is ripe for the sickle.
The Volki Zeitung recalls the warning of
the Republique Francaise, "An Emperor if

of system in tho government of France. No
immediate danger is feared as resards interna
tional complications, as it is believed that in
ternal dissension will prevent external entan
glements. The Keue Freie Presse says:
If President Carnot, uniting the Republicans
under the banner of honesty, appears boldly
and openly to France, he can still bring the
country to reason. He must, while bravely at
tacking Boulanger, suppress with a firm hand
the rivalries in his own camp. Not the Repub

The Trteneraff&faM says:
The return of France to a programme of
moderation is hardly possible, The moderate
elements will soon disappear from the scene
and wild revolutionaries hold the field. The

The Deutsche Zeitung predicts stormy
times in France. It doubts whether the
Republicans have sufficient strength to suc
cessfully resist Boulangerism.

bill has been reported favorably by the
committee to whom it was referred. Dur
ing the consideration of the bill by the
committee Count Herbert Bismarck de
fended the Government's policy of retaining
the 14 German stations in the interests of
trade. Of the amount appropriated bv the
bill 1,000,000 marks will be applied to the
payment of salaries, 800,000 marks will be
devoted to the purchase of arms aud ammu

Count Herbert stated that the relations
between Germany and England had not
been disturbed during the last three years.
England attached great importance to the
maintenance of the authority of the Sultan
of Zanzibar, which Germany therefore also
desired should be maintained.

London, January 28. A London doctor
eloped on Friday last from Nice with the
17-year-old daughter of an official of New
York State. The young lady is a blonde
and very pretty. She had been staying at a
pension, but last week went with her
mother to a hotel in Sentone. The doctor
was stopping at the same hotel. The couple
took a train at Vintiglimia and were ar
rested in Paris on Saturday. The affair has
created a sensation in the Riviera.
The man registered as Dr. Sellon, of
London, and the girl as Ida Wilcox. The
girl's father is Carlos "Wilcox. He and her

begged forgiveness. Sellon and the girl
are on their way back.

BRIBED BY PIEATES.
A Serious Reflection Cast on the Gov
ernment in Connection With
THE ALASKA SEAL FISHERIES.
An Expert Makes Sorao Interesting State
ments and Draws
SOME VRT STARTLING CONCLUSIONS.
How Was Immunity From Seizure Secured by the
A startling allegation comes from In
dianapolis in connection with the Alaska
seal fisheries. The evidence taken before a
Congressional committee is dissected and an
attempt made to show that the Alaska
pirates must have purchased immunity from
Indianapolis, January 28. The re
ceipt here to-day of the evidence given be
fore the Congressional Committee investi
gating Government affairs at the Seal
Islands of Alaska created considerable
comment in certain classes that have taken
a live interest in the investigation
The evidence shows that one Captain
Shepherd, of the Revenue Cutter Eush, tes
tified that in the year 1887, while carrying
out the instructions of the Secretary of the
Treasury to seize all piratical vessels found
killing seals in the waters of Behring Sea,
he captured 15 vessels laden with
12,000 sealskins, all of which property
was confiscated. The significant feature
of the testimony is Shepherd's statement that
last season (1888) he made no scizures,because
ot confidential instructions from the Secre
tary of the Treasury not to interfere. He
testifies that the marauders took'in 1888, ac
cording to published accounts of the num
ber of skins sold by the pirate ships on their
return nome, Detween o,vw ana -'o,uw
A SERIOUS charge.
Thomas F. Ryan, of this city, ex-Treasury
agent at the Seal Islands, and accounted
among the best living authorities on the
seal fisheries question in an interview this
evening says: "CaDtain Shepherd's report
for last year is positively startling. It
shows clearly that the great seal interests
have been prostituted for political purposes,
and that our possessions in the Seal
Islands have been robbed by the direct
or indirect connivance of tome one
high in authority. I am thoroughly famil
iar with the whole question, and do not hes
itate to charge that a gigantic fraud on the
Government is being covered up. The 26,-
000 skins which Shepherd swears he knows
were taken by the pirates last year sailing
under the British flag would bring at Vic
toria or San Francisco 5175,000.
"For the privilege of committing this
gigantic theft unmolested the pirates could
afford to pay a good ronnd sum, perhaps as
much as 5100,000. How I am interested to
learn who got tbe money. I am watching
to see whether the committee will dare to
probe this steal to the bottom and trace the
bribe money that surely passed.
A MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR.
"Captain Shepherd testifies that under his
instructions from the Treasury Department
he could not seize the pirates, although he
found them engaged in theirunlawful work.
Questioned as to the precise character of his
instructions, note Shepherd's astonishing
and significant reply. He says under oath:
'I received confidential instructions from
the Treasury Department, a copy of which
is on file in'the department and" which were
returned to the department by their orders.
If it is all the same to the committee I
would ask that it apply to the Secretary of
the Treasury for a copy of these instruc
tions rather than to ask me divulge them?
"Now there is but one construction to be
put on this statement, and that is that some
influence was brought to bear upon the de
partment to secure immunity from seizure
tor these marauders. Taking the situation
at the Washington end at that particular
juncture, when the Democratic Committee
was hungry forfundsaad the administration
was disposed to toady to the English flag,
and you have the " explanation ot what
would otherwise be a very mysterious af
fair. There will be more light thrown on
this branch of the subject later on."
Mr. Kyan himself was a witness before
the Congressional Committee a few weeks
ago, but he states that he was abruptly dis
missed when about one-half of his real testi
mony had been elicited.
BUNNY. WILL GET HER BOODLE.
The Snpremo Conrt Snys Mr. Arbnckle Blast
Pay That $45,000 for IPs and It's.
fSPKCIAt. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCn.l
New York, January 28. Charles Ar
buckle, the coffee millionaire, who ap
peared as "Baby Bunting" in the famous
breach of promise suit in which "Bunny,"
otherwise Miss Clara Campbell, of Ironton,
O., recovered $45,000 damages from him, is
about to build the biggest flat in Brooklyn, at
Columbia Heights and Orange street. It
will cost S375.000. The general term of the
Supreme Court has decided on appeal that
Mr. Arbuckle must pay up the 45,000 to
Miss Campbell. Judge Macomber writes
the opinion and Judge Brady concurs.
Presiding Justice Van Brunt dissents.
Judge Macomber makes some interesting
remarks. There is no doubt, he says, that
the millionaire proposed and was accepted,
and the breach of contract is satisfactorily
Eroven. If he intended to marry
er at all after June 4, 1883,
it was incumbent on him to name
the day. It was risht to let the jnry de
cide whether Arbuckle's letter of Novem
ber, 1883, contained a dishonorable pro
posal, or was a mere piece of vulgarity.
Judge Macomber holds also that it was
right to leave the amount of dam
ages to the jury. Judge Van Brunt
holds that the trial Judge erred in not ex
plaining to the jury the difference between
compensatory and punitory damage. He
thinks, also, that it was a mistake to give
the jury to understand that they were the
sole judges of the amount of damages.

Strong Particulars of tbe DIarder o
New York, January 28. Public inter
est in the strike of the Brooklyn street car
employes has been intensified by the de
velopments to-day of the antecedents of
Henry "W. Adams, who was killed at the
Atlantic avenue car stables Saturday night.
The story of the killing is coming to
the surface, and indignation increases with
the public interest. Adams was a de
scendant of the famous Adams family of
Massachusetts. The prisoners were ar
raigned to-day and were held upon this
affidavit, made by Detective Powers:
I n as detailed to make an investigation as to
how the deceased Adams came to his death. I
learned by my investigation that the deceased
came to bis death at the bands of John Collier.
Morri Stenson and Kearns Graham, they hav
ing deliberately entered the stables on above
mentioned street, took the deceased, and threw
him from a window to 'the sidewalk below,
where his bodv was fonnd. Tho deponent fur
ther says that he has probable cause to believe
that one John Schumacher is also a party to
the above action, as he was the watchman and
allowed them to enter the stable.
At 4 o'clock" this afternoon two police
patrol wagons rolled ont from the Atlantic
Avenue Railway Company's stables. In
each were 13 policemen and 8 new employes
of the company, who were to be taken to
other stables. Twenty mounted policemen
formed an escort to the men in the wagons.
A larze crowd irathered abont the stables.
and when the wagons started toward the
Fifth avenue and Twenty-fourth street
stables the crowd became a mob, howling
and swearing and throwing stones at the
policemen and their charge.
The wagons and horsemen pressed briskly
on, the mob following and gaining in num
bers and fury every minute. Finally the
procession was halted on Twenty-third
street, near the stables. Several thousand
angrymen blocked the way. From the streets,
windows and house tops stones, clubs and
brickbats showered upon the policemen
and trembling employes. The mounted
officers charged and the squads advanced on
the galop like squadron of cavalry. The
officers used their clnbs effectively and at 5
o'clock the employes were safely lodged in
the stables. Strong details of
police' gnard the stables and

Messrs. Procter & Gamble, Cincinnati.
Gentlemen : Although a stranger to you, and my testimonial
entirely unnecessary as it certainly is unsolicited, yet I take great
pleasure in testifying to the excellence of your "Ivory" Soap,
and thanking you for putting it on the market at so low a price.
It has entirely supplanted the use of Castile and other fine
soaps in' my household for several years past, being in no way
inferior, 'and from fifty to seventy-five per cent, more economical.
A good test I find for the purity of soap is to try it with a
brush for cleansing the teeth, and the taste of the "Ivory" Soap
so used is perfectly sweet and clean.
Very Respectfully Yours, W. S. BAKER, M. D.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many wriite soaps, each represented to he "just as good as toeMvor j
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for " Ivory " Soap and insist upon getting it.

New York, January 28. The applica

New York Times and the New York TforW
to answer his complaint in his action for
libel, or at least to limit the time, was de
nied by Judge Patterson, in the Supreme
Court chambers, to-8ay. In his decision
the Judge says the orders were properly
granted. It wonld be inconsistent to com
pel the defendants to answer 'with orders
outstanding to enable them to procure facts
required for their answers.
So long as these orders remain unrevoked,
says the Court, the defendants' time cannot
be limited. The plaintiff, as non-resident,
has no greater right than a resident plain
tiff, who must submit to the orders of the
Court. The examinations do not seem to be
asked in bad. faith, bnt are stated upon the
oaths of reputable counsel to be necessary.
