The Ex-Umpire Says He Will

PEEPAEING ANOTHER WEIT
An Interesting Letter From Fred

The Connty League Sdiedule-Spalding's
Teams Play a Tie in England.
GENERAL SPORTING KEWS OF THE DAT
S. M. Decker, the ex-umpire of the Na
tional League, though knocked down in tho
first round in his'battle with that gigantic
what is it, comes up smiling for another
bout. He talked yesterday like a man who
means to stay in the arena, no matter how
great the odds against him. Eegarding the
decision of the court on Saturday he made
the followingpointed statement to aDiSFATCU
representative yesterday: "I am not downed,"
he said. "I have simply got a set back, but it is
about -what I expected. We can now proceed
to make out our papers right. Tho court de
cided thtt my writ was defective.but sustained
my demurrer. My attorney, Mr. Watson, is
preparing an answer which will cover the case
explicitly and it will be filed within 15 days.
WAS TOO MUCH HUREIED.
"Mr. Watson had to bring suit hurriedly. I
heard that my people were in Pittsburg and
telegraphed him to get service on them. His
time was short, hence the defective writ; It
only makes the costs heavier on me. I do not
know what grounds Mr. Watson will take, bnt
he may bring suit directly against President N.
E. 'oung and the Pittsburg club. I feel cer
tain that I will eventually win. The trouble is
there is no precedent and my attorney has the
difficult job of finding out just what the League
is and who is responsible.
Mr. Decker's declaration, together with the
statement of his attorney, means that we will
certainly -hear and probably learn much more
about the League before the case is settled.
There seems to have been to some extent
A WKOXG IMrKESSIOX
concerning Satuidaj's court decision. The
general idea has evidently been to the effect
that Becker was completely knocked out. He
has not been, and hie attorney states that he
was not surprised at the decision. Mr. Watson,
along with Mr. Decker, is aware that the great
difficulty is in determining what the League is.
Mr, Watson, on Saturday, was not certain
w licther or not Mr. Decker b as w illing to fight
on, and now that the latter de
clares himself still in the ring, the
contest will assuredly be continued in
another way. Jndge Slagle gave Mr. Watson
and bis client to clearly understand on Satur
day that tliey were not absolutely ruled out of
court, but he also gave just as clear an intima
tion that they must legally discover what the
National Baseball League is before Decker's
claim can be considered in court. This really
is of more importance to the general public
than any financial claim Decker may have.
Attorney Watson is imbued with al! the ar
dor of a young lawyer, and he claims that he
has several more good shots to fire. He is cer
tain that one of them at least will bit the
mark. He is preparing a writ, but hedeclines
to say at pre'ent what it is. Hewillllkelv
connect every League club with the case, and
particularly sue President Young and Mr. V.
A. "imick, as agents of the organization. It
is legally claimed that President Young Is a
deputed agent to engage men in behalf ot the
eight clubs comprising the National League.
At any rate Mr. Watson will have another
statement in court within a few days.
THE DWYERS' STABLE.
An En.tern Authority Telia of the Brothers
Writing of the Dwyer stable an authority in
the New York Herald says: Other well-known
members of the Dwyer stable, includingKings
ton. Sir Dixon, Pontiac. Bessie June, Ford
ham, Oregon, Longstreet, Bella B, Aurania,
Taviston, Brussels and Inspector B are taking
their work regularly, though some of them are
being handled slowly, as McCabe says he does
not want them all fit at once, preferring to
keep a few of the best fresh for the middle and
tail end of the season. Kingston and Sir
Dixon are apparently as sound as a dollar,
though Ue latter has been declared out of the
spring handicaps. Pontiac, the "black En
glishman," will be trained again that is, the
attempt will be made. His legs have boftn
"dicky" for a year or two. But it is in the 2-year-old
division that the stable will be par
ticularly strong this season.
The Dwyers were always noted for their su
perior string of youngsters, and in the years
gone by many of the richest prizes have been
credited to their stable. This season the
youngsters are an unusually promising lot, and
owners and trainers hereabouts agree that the
majority of them will be hard to beat. Prob
ably the pick of the string is Houston, a full
brother to Hanover, whom he resembles except
in color. Houston is a bay and cost $3,500 as a
yearling. He is the picture of a race horse.
Another particularly fine looker is the sister
to Tremont. She is black and is shaped like
her famous brother. Flatbush, full brother to
Firenzi, pleases the critics, as he resembles the
great mare very much, but the track hands
have picked out a colt by Luke Blackbnrn,
dam Tomboy, as the coming wonder. The
other stables at the Brooklyn track are in ex
cellent enndition and the trainers are begin
ning to be as bus; as bees.
More Entries for the Bit Race Xoremac
Thinks He'll Win.
Manager Davis, of the approaching six-day
edestrian contest that is to take place in the
ccond week in April, returned from the East
yesterday. He reports that there are more en
tries for the contest than the track will permit
In addition to the entries already noticed "Par
son Tillie," of Canada, Adams, Dolan and oth
ers are noted.
Ir is expected that Alberts and Herty will
start. The former is now on a hunting expedi
tion in Massachuesetts, but Noremac thinks he
will be here. All the leading men are training
because the winner will realize at least $1,000
and probably 1,500. Noremac thinks be can
win the race and is, therefore, training hard
every day. There will be a great demand for
expert trainers. Many of the contestants will
bring trainers, but tbey will need assistants.
ANOTHER GOOD SPRINTER.
Grant is a. Dyer A Word Abont Johnson
The Britishers have developed another phe
nomenal sprinter in George Grant, of Edin
burgh. He won the late Sheffield handicap,
and George Smith, the local sprinter, received
a letter from England yesterday staling that
Grant is matched to run Wharton. The letter
goes on to say that Grant is considered to be
about three yards better than even time.
Tbisls Interesting, in view of the fact that
during the winter the public has been informed
that Johnson, Davis et ah have been rnnning
on muddy tracks in much better time than
this. The Sheffield authorities are either
handling comparatively slow men, even in
Wharton and Grant, or Johnson and his col
leagues are deceiving the pnblic The latter
seems to bethe fact.
Hooalem Henrd From.
IkniAXAPOLls, Lvd.. March 18. President
Brush, of the Indianapolis Baseball Club, re
turned home from the East to-night, where he

, Myers writes that he is building a house in
Buffalo and cannot get here before April 1.
Manager Bancroft will arrive some time next

assemblage of 3,000 people.
The party is traveling in royal style in ten

CARROLL'S INTERESTING LETTER.
He Tells How the Ball Players Met a Pitts
boreer In Pnris.
A letter was received in the city yesterday
from Fred Carroll by one of his friends. The
letter was written in Paris, and it chiefly refers
to the excellent enjoyment all the players of
Mr. Spalding's two teams are having. After
reciting how all the "great people and poten
tates" have fraternized with the American ball
players, Carroll relates a pleasant little inci
dent that occurred in Paris.
His story is to the effect that he. Wood and
Fogarty were wandering about Paris like
three lost men. They looked Into a theater and
met Gasper, the well-known bookmaker of
this city. He had been in Paris a few weeks
and knew his way about" Carroll says his
presence was a blessing. Gasper became their
pilot, and they had a good time in the French
capital. Carroll added that every man in the
party was longing to get into an English speak

the players in the All-America team had made
up their minds to stick to Spalding until bis

Harkisburo, March 18. The Board of
Pardons, at the meeting to-morrow, will
have a number of imporibnt cases to con
sider, among them Edward Slattery, who
will be represented by W. D. Moore, who
is expected to produce evidence showing
that the prisoner did not kill Meyer, bnt
that the Murder was committed by Edward
Coffey. The following cases will also be
B. L. Brady, conspiracy, Venango

will also be hnd in the case of Samuel
Johnson, the murderer of JohnJSharpless in
Delaware county, who has been respited
eight or nine times to give him an oppor
tunity to prove that he did not perpetrate
the crime. Ex-Governors Hoyt, Pollock
and Hartranft have asked for the com
mutation of the death! penalty to imprison

Senators have signed the petition requesting
similar action. Representative Baker, of

when Johnson was convicted, will protest
against the extension of executive clemency
because he believes him guilty of the'erime

Another very important case to be acted
on by the board is that of Sarah Jane

her husband and two children. Judge Al

Secretary Blaine Receives Official News of
the Outrages nt Chin Klanr.
WASHiNGTOK-.March 18. The Secretary
of State has received from Mr. Kennedy,
United States. Consul General, at Shanghai,
a report on the recent riots at Chin Kiang,
China. It appears that on February 5 the
Consul General received from General
Jones, at Chin Kiang, telegraphic news of
the riot and threatened attack on the con
sulate, and a request for protection. As
there was no American man-of-war imme
diately available, the British Consul Gen
eral was communicated with and a British
man-of-war was started from Shanghai on
February 6, for Chin Kiang. On that day
the British Consulate and four other houses
at Chin Kiang were burned, and the office
of the American Consul gutted and looted
by a mob of about 6,000. Mr. Jones and
family escaped injury.
These facts were communicated to our
Minister, at Peking. The Consul General at
Shanghai has also reported that there was a
late rumor that more buildings had been
destroyed, among them the residences of
some American missionaries.

the necessity for this action. There are
bills on the calendar, he declared, that are
more important than some others, because
they are designed for the whole State in
stead of for a locality. He didn't seem to
think there were a great many of them,
however, for he later declared that there
were probably not 25 bills before the Legis
lature outside the general revenue bill
and the appropriation bills, that were vital
to the welfare of the Commonwealth, and
he was not prepared to say that the passage
of all appropriation bills is a necessity.
ADJOURNMENT NOT "WANTED.
Mr. Dearden said the important bills
were scattered all through the calendars,
and perhaps some of them were near the end
of it. He had submitted his proposition to
many able minds, and they agreed with him
that it was an excellent idea to separate the
wheat from the chaff. This is why he ap
pealed to the good judgment and fairness of
the House. Mr. Dearden. however, didn't
find the good judgment and fairness of
the House where he expected to find
it. The members who were present
had evidently made np their minds that
adjournment is not an unmixed blessing,
and after a great deal of vigorous debate
the motion of two Democrats Messrs. Mac
Donald and Quigley to indefinitely post
pone the resolution, was carried by a very
large majority of a very slim House. Chair
man Andrews was absent from his accus
tomed seat when this declaration of inde
pendence was made and the rebellious Re
publicans will probably hear somcthiug
confidential from him when he returns.
Mr. Brooks was more fortunate than Mr.
Dearden in an effort to carry out the Be
publican policy. He met an onslaught to
night, led by Mr. MacDonald, the brilliant
young member from Lackawanna, repulsed
it in spite of the evident fairness of the lat
ter's proposition. Mr. MacDonald asked a
special order for his bill to restore the
license fees in cities of the third class
to what they had been before the Supreme
Court of the State knocked out the classifi
cation act, and explained his position
HIGHER LICENSE FEES THIS TEAE.
The Brooks bill, he said, passed at the
session of 1887, had fixed the license fee in
cities of the first, second and'third classes
in other words, in Philadelphia, Pittsburg
and Allegheny at $500, and in all other
cities at $200. It was the intention of the
Legislature when it passed the law that
all cities but the three named should
pay the smaller sum, and the Supreme
iiourt uaving ueciueu against more man
three classes of cities, those that had been
classified as fourth-class cities and lower be
came by the decision third-class cities, and
the license fee is raised by the letter of the
law in them to $500. He asked that the
House conform to the intents of the last
Legislature by amending the law.
Mr. Marshall, of Allegheny, called at
tention to the fact that Mr. MacDon'ald's
bill made the license fees in all third-class
cities 300, and Allegheny, as a third-class
city, was not clamoring for it. The liquor
dealers there were willing to pay for license.
Mr. Brooks defeated the plea for a special
order by telling the House that once the
matter of amending the license law was
opened np there was no telling where it
might end. uonsequentiy it ought not to
begin at a time when the people were pre
paring to take another step in advance on
the liquor question. Mr. Qnigley objected
to Mr. Brooks acting as dictator of. the
House, but the House seemed to like it,'and
liquor legislation will therefore not be per
mitted to interfere with an early adjourn
ment. WIIJjING TO BE GOVERNOR.
Ex-Scnntor Lee Likely to be a Candidate
for the Honor.
1FBOH A STAFF COBREOrOtrDKNT.I
Haeeisburg, March 18. A member of
the Legislature says ex-Senator Lee, of Ve
nango, has received many letters on the
subject of his candidacy for Governor since
the recent publication in The Dispatch.
Prominent men in all parts of the State
have communicated with him, and he will
have a great deal of strengtMf he will con
sent to enter the contest. All the independ
ent Bepublicans are for him, though he did
not vote for their candidate, Stewart.
The legislator ab'ove quoted says ex-Senator
Lee will not, however, enter the field
personally unless there is a distinct and de
cided demand for him. The signs are not
wanting that at the proper time there will
be a movement of no mean proportions to
bring him out.

Harrisburg, March 18. Bepresenta
tive Lemon to-night introduced a bill to
appropriate $62,000 to pay the indebtedness
of the West Pennsylvania Hospital. This
item was stricken out of the former
bill in committee, on the ground
that no money should be appropriated
td the charitable institutions, except for
maintenance. The bill introduced by Mr.
Lemon to-night recites that the indebted
ness was iucurred in the years since 1880 for
the maintenance of charity patients and dis
charged soldiers, and a mortgage had to be
given to meet the indebtedness.
It is hoped that this representation of the
matter may induce favorable action on the

is one from ex-President Butherford B.
Hayes, from Fremont, O. It is given in

Major General George Crook, of the Di

"A charity which sectionalism can well af

Mt Dear Sir I thank you for the privilege
of uniting with the New York Citizens' Com
mittee in their patriotic and charitable work
in behalf of the disabled and destitute soldiers
ot the late Confederacy. The time is plainly
drawing near (if it has not already come),
when justice to its defenders will require the
National Government to expend much larger
sums than have heretofore been appropriated
for the support of the men who saved it. The
sacred obligation to the Union soldiers must
not, will not be forgotten nor neglected, espe
cially by those who have shared in the fullest
measure the prosperity which has come from
the services and sacrifices of those who stood
by the Government when it was imperilled.
Bnt those who fought against the nation
cannot and do not look to it for relief. . Their
disabled and destitute comrades are left to the
generosity and benefactions of their more
fortunate fellow citizens who wisely forecast
the inspiring future of our country. Confed
erate soldiers and their descendants are to
share with ns and our descendants the destiny
of America. Whatever, therefore, we, their
fellow citizens, can do to remove burdens from
their shoulders and to brighten their lives is
surely in the pathway of both humanity and
patriotism. With my contribntion to the enter
prise I beg you to accept also my best wishes
for its success. I remain, sincerely,
Rutherford b. Hates.
THE STORAGE OF LIFE.
How Wo Thoughtlessly or ignornntly Waste
Within each ton of coal was stored, long
before the creation of man,a definite amount
of heat, which, by the chemical process of
combustion, may be made available for
man's use. A barrel of wheat contains a
fixed amount of food. Electricity can now
be stored, and bought and sold in measured
Each person has a definite amount of
stored lite, normally equal to about 100
years; but, in most case?, our ancestors have
squandered much that should have come to
us, and we ourselves waste not a little that
we have actually inherited.
This wasting of our store of life is as seri
ous a .thine as it is common. It may be
done thoughtlessly or ighorantly, but the
waste is just as irretrievable. Tens of
thousands of children die annually, and as
many more survive, with a sadly wasted
vitality, simply because their mothers do
not exercise enough care in the matter of
lood, clotning, pure air and sunshine.
Our schools waste this store by drawing
too largely on the brain and nerves of their
pupils through the competitive system, the
worry of public examinations; through ex
acting the same tasks of the bright and of
the dull, and through lack of adequate and
persistent attention to the sanitary condition
of the schoolrooms.
Some parents allow their children to
waste their supply of nervous force by the
incessant reading of sensational books, or
by frequent attendance at exciting evening
parties, and some by not insisting on regu
lar and sufficient sleep.
Women waste it by overwork and worry
of their homes, and it is a very rapid waste.
Gay young ladies and fast youug men waste
it at a fearful rate in their rounds of pleas
ure. Only next is the waste ot high living,
conjoined with excessive devotion to busi
ness. Of all the professions, the medical wastes
the life-store most rapidly by irregular and
broken sleep, night exposure and the con
stant drain on the sympathies and the nerv
ous system. It seems a pity that those
whose great work is to save and prolong the
life of others shonld have to do it at the ex
pense of their own.
A CHILD'S FAITH REWARDED.
She Got What Sbe Prayed for bnt Wasn't
Satisfied Even Then.
A little girl in Auburn whose ways are
altogether lovely, became recently, after the
manner of childhood, very much interested
in those epidermic excrescences on her
brother's hand known, familiarly as warts,
and she thought that she would be happy
if she could be blessed with some just like
them. Her mother had taught her to pray
for what she wanted and the little damsel
of her own accord prayed one night for
warts. They came whether in answer to
fietition or by excessive familiarity with her
ittle brother's beauty-marks is not known,
but they came. As time passed the little
one's views on warts changed. She no
longer thought they were handsome or nice
and she took the same remedy to remove
them, viz: prayer. It proved less efficacious
in this direction than,in the other, and after
some vain petitioning she presented .her
tearful face at her mother's side one day re
cently, and with determination born of dis
appointment said thatshe would never make
"Why, said her mother," you prayed for
the warts and thev came. God onlv sent
you what you asked for. Why should you.
The little maid looked thoughtfully ur
for a moment and then replied with this di
rect statement, "I will tell you why mam
ma. When I asked God for warts I didn't
know they were not nice and God did, so
It settled the discussion.
