GENERAL SPORTING NEWS OF THE DAJ
There were some more exciting features
in the pedestrian contest yesterday at the
Central rink. Early in the morning Sammy
Day, who had heroically held on to first
place for about 12 hours, became sick and
was forced to rest two or three hours. He
"" vomited considerably and he was disposed
to retire from the contest. His attendants,
however, nursed him with great success and
got him refiied shortly after dinner Sammy
reappeared and trudged along, bnt nearly 20
, miles behind the leader.
When Say made the temporary collapse He-
gelman went to the front, and .Noremac, the
$ plucky little Scotchman, began to earnestly
C apire for the lead. He gradually gained on
: Hegelman, and about boon was within a few
fe laps of him. Then began one of the most in-
f tense struggles that has been seen on a pedes-
t tnan track. More than a dozen times Hore-
W mac tried to shake his speedy and graceful
r young rival off, but the latter stuck to the lit-
9 tie man like a shadow. Koremae went round
fc and round the track at top speed, bnt Hegel-
i man was there. He was 7 laps in front, and he
was determined to maintain that lead as long
r as possible. The band would first play a
Scotch air and then "Yankee" Doodle. This
$ cheered the contestants on, and they sprinted
round and round amid the deafening yells of
the crowd. Hegelman surprised the talent by
I the way he stuck to his task,
f XOBESIAC TO THE FBONT.
I Finally, abont 2 o'clock, nature could hold
5 out no more, and Peter was forced to retire for
K 15 or 20 minutes. Noremac then went to the
front, and after going a lap further than Hegel-
man he also retired. Noremac's attendant was
on guard, and as soon as Hegelman reappeared
Koremac was bronght ouL The struggle was
resumed, much to the delight of the vast audi
ence. Noremac looks like a winner.
Little Connors complained of sore legs, but
be kept close to the leaders, andhe is confident
of being near the front at the finish. Messier,
the Colorado representative, moved along ex
tremely well, and a great many people think
he will be among the first three. Durinc the
afternoon he had a vomiting spell, but he soon
recovered. Adams probaDly was going better
than an body on the track after supper time.
Golden looked better than he did on Tuesday
and his friends think he will get over the
limit. Cartwnght was complaining of a weak
leg last evening, bnt he thinks there is nothing
So far one of the surprises is the perform
ance of Yokum, the woods' Run stock yard
representative. This is his first race, and last
eening he was moving along like a veteran.
He hasn big and enthusiastic following. He
mav not reach the 475 mark this time, but un
doubtedly he will develop into a good six-day
man if rightly handled. Old man Tavlor cov
ered 2U0 miles about 8.30, amm the wildest en
thusiasm. Somebody presented him with a
monster pie specially prepared for him. The
old man carried it round ihe track in triumph
ant glee. Andr Seibert looked badly broken
up. He has a very bad knee and ankle.
As each man reached the 250-mile mark he
received 10. It really is remarkable to find so
many over that mark on a 16-lap track. They
are not only over that mark but they look like
staying to the end. The result is still in doubt
as an) man in the race is liable to be overtaken
by a sick spell. So far the straggle has been
intense, and it is likely to continue so. Abont
4.000 people paid admission yesterday.
KECK AND KECK.
. As midnight approached Hegelman left the
track, and after taking a lead of fourlapsKote
mac also retired. At 12 o'clock Cartwright,
Horan, Brown and Yockum were the only con
testants on the track. Cartwright gave an
exhibition of first-class running, and was loudly
cheered. Little Horan plodded on gamely, and
earned well-merited applanse. Cartwnght
passed Messier, who had retired shortly after 9
o'clock. His attendants foolishly allowed him
to sleep three hours, and he gave them a "bit of
his mind" as a consequence.
A few minutes before 1 o'clock Connors and
Hegelman reappeared, and the latter once
more took the lead. He was a mile in front
before Noremac got down to work again.
Connors had creDt up to within two
miles of the leaders, and was going
we!I. Noremac and Hegelman resumed their
struggle, however, much to the delight of
spectators. All the contestants were showing
the effects of the severe race. At 130 a des
perate race of two miles took place between
Noremac and Connors. The Scotchman made
the Britisher quit after going the second mile
in seven minutes. Noremac once more took
the lead. Following w as the score at 2 o'clock:

Louisville, April 10. "Hustling
Horace" Phillips stood by and sweat blood
this afternoon to see his aggregation so un
mercifully pounded by the rejuvenated
Louisville nine, at whom he sneered so con
fidently when he started out on the'present
trip. The Louisville "Blue Jays," as they
have been denominated on account of their
blue uniforms, proved the value bf the new
blood by remarkable team and Individual
playing that made the contest full of thrilling
interest from beginning to end. Captain Ester
brook stood on the coaching line when not on
base or at the bat, and talked to his men with
such cheering enthusiasm that he made them
as confident as he appeared, and helped them
put up an almost errorless game.
The Smoky City boys worked hard, bnt not
with their usual enthusiasm and dash, and
Pitcher Morris was too wild to help as he should
have done, while Ewlng pitched magnificently
for Louisville. Four errors show np .on the
Pittsburg side of the score, but three of tho
six runs Louisville got were earned. The
home club scored once in the second inning.
Then Coleman, who had made a fine hit when
he went to bat In the second, started the run
getting for his side in the third inning by
taking his base on balls after "King" Dunlap
bad gon e out on a fly to Raymond. Maul made
a beautiful hit to left, and both he and Cole
man scored on Kuehne's slashing three-bagger.
It looked like as if the Smoky Cityshad
found the ball, but Allen, who went to bat
next repeated his striking out performance of
the previous Inning and Weaver neatly cap
tured Morris' long fly to center, retiring the
side. In the fifth Inning the Louisvilles made
two more runs. Ewlng got his base on Allen's
error in handling a grounder. Tomney made a
hit to right. Browning was put ont at first,
but Wolf got his base on balls and then Miller
let a ballpass ana Tomney and Ewing reached
home. The side was retired on Esterbrook's
short fly. In the sixth Weaver made a three
hagger and came home on Shannon's sacrifice
hit. In the seventh Ewing started with a hit
to right and Browning got his base on a wild
Pitch, comlnir home on wolfs two-batnrer and
-ine Auecnemes scorea once on tneir Biae
in this inning by a home run hit of Miller, who
drove the ball against the left field fence. Mor
ris and Sunaay had been thrown ont at first.
Beckley retired the side by striking our.
Shannon scored for Louisville in the eighth, and
almost a suuerhuman Dlav on the Dart of Sun
day was all that prevented Wolf from making
a home run in the ninth. He made a tremen
dous drive over Sunday's head and at least 100
feet beyond where the center fielder was,
Sunday ran backward with his eyes fixed upon
the ball, and by a desperate effort caueht it
with his hands at the back of his head. The
force of the ball knocked him down and rolled
him over twice, but he clung to the sphere and
beat a great batter ont of a rnn. The play was
loudly applauded. Maul did splenciid work in
left field for the visitors, having six put outs.
On the Louisville side the features were Ester-
brook's fine playing at first and Wolfs heavy
batting. Twice Esterbrook caught balls on
the bonnd which Tomney had thrown too short
and put out feunday before that sprinter could
reach first. The weather was fine and attend
ance about LS00. In the absence of an umpire
Jack Kenns officiated to the satisfaction of all.

The Popnlar Second Baseman Threatens to
Sue the Kansas Cltr Club.
'Sam Barkley, formerly the popular and use
ful second baseman ol the Pittsburg club, was
inthecityjesterday. He has not signed with
any club j et, and his case is a singular one. It
may develop into a court contest. Sam's posi
tion seems to be a strong one. He stated it
as follows last evening:
"I am going to Kansas City to-morrow to see
what the officials of that club there are goinc
to do. I want 32,350 for the season, and I am
offered $1,800. My case is this: When I was
purchased from Pittsburg, Manager Dave
Rowe wirsd me to the effect that I would get
$2,000 for the season and $350 advance money
outside my salary. In a subsequent telegram
Rowe informed me that I would receive the
same payment this year. A few weeks ago,
when I forwarded the telegram to Manager
AVatkins, the President of the dab,
wrote me to the effect that a manager had no
right to make any such terms with me. The
President went onto say that I could get no
more than 51,800. and that if I did not want to
play for that amount I coula try and negotiate
for the purchase of my release. I wrote back,
saying that it was not my business to negotiate
for the sale of releases, and that I meant to
have the $2,350 bargained for. My attorney ad
vised me to cive tho club until Annl 12 to see
what the officials will do. I am going on then
to find ont what conclusion they have arrived
at. If they still refuse to carry out their agree
ment with me then I must appeal to law. My
aveement with the club is bona fide, and I
think the court will enforce it."

Ex-President Hayes, in his response, paid

men who had a stake in the nation, from
young men who, after a brief term of actual

Major Lambert said the object of the order
was not to keep alive revengeful memories
of the war, nor was it merely to cherish
friendships formed by companionship in
battle, but it was rather to transmit to the
future that spirit of patriotism that prompted
men to face death for the great privilege of
handing down to posterity the flag with
never a star lost and of preserving the
Union of keeping of the trust committed
to us by the founders of the Bepnblic.

PIERSON IS IGNORED
And Lucius Tattle Is Blade Chairman of
the Passenger Committee.
tSrXCIAL TXLXGBJJI to thx DISPATCH.
New Yobk, April 10. At a meeting of
the general passenger agents to-day the Ex
ecutive Committee of the trunk lines was
instructed to appoint Mr. Lucius Tuttle, of
the Central Pacific Bailroad, as Chairman
of the Passenger Committee, thus totally
ignoring Mr. Pierson, the incumbent. It
is the custom to reappoint the commissioner
an4 freight and passenger chairmen every
year when the new rales are adopted.
The new rules of the several committees
went into effect on the first of the present
month, but they were adopted a week or
more before. Commissioner Fink was re
appointed, but the passenzer commissioner
ship was "passed over, leaving it practically
vacant. The step was taken in order to
effect a settlement of the running and rate
THE LADI'S BROKER PULLED.
It Is Claimed That He Assisted Her to Ap
Elmiba, N. Y., April 10. The deten
tion of Ella G. White, the Elmira music
teacher who obtained between 20,000 and
(30,000 from Elmira parties on various rep
resentations and lost the money in specula
tion, has resulted in the arrest of Nelson B.
Wheeler, bucket shop proprietor, through
whom Miss White conducted her dealings.
Wheeler last evening was twice arrested on
warrants charging him with forgery in the
second degree. He pleaded not guilty and
his wife furnished bond for bail.
Jacob Schwartz, counsel for Wheeler,
says it is preposterous to charge Mr. Wheeler
with forgery, as he hid nothing to do with
Miss White's transactions beyond invest
ing the money she put into his hands in a
perfectly legitimate business. He said it
could be clearly shown that Wheeler does
not operate a bucket shop.
AK0THER FIGHT SETTLED.
Lacey, of Michigan, Is to be Controller of

Washington, April 10. It is reported
to-night that the long fight over the Con
trollership of the Currency has been decided
by, the President, and that ex-Bepresenta-tive
Lacey, of Michigan, will get the ap
pointment, John Sherman and other Ohio
men have made a great effort in behalf of
Bichard C. Parsons, former Marshal of the
Supreme Court, and the latter's friends are
still hopeful that their man will win, but
the ugly spots in Parsons' record have been
laid before the President, and it is hardly
possible that they can have been ignored.
Notwithstanding Lacey's excellent pros
pects, the Michigan men here think that
Colonel H. M. Duffield, of that State, will
be Solicitor General. They say this appoint
ment will be made as a personal recognition
of General Bussel A. Alger.

The regular meeting of Allegheny Councils
is announced for this evening. If there is a
auorum, which is unlikely, nothing will ba
one, as none of the committees have been ap
pointed, and there is no business for consider

a motion at the meeting for organization to
postpone the first regular meeting, but for
some reason this was not done, ana Councils
will convene to-night if a quorum can be ob
