Test Little Noremac.
THE SCOT STILL LEADS.
A Local Bare Knuckle Fight Yester
PITTSBDBGS BEATEN AGAIN.
Old Gakin Merrilj Touched Up Ij the
GENERAL SPOETIKG SEWS OF THE DAT
The majority of people who are interested
in the pedestrian contest at the Central
Kink, seem to look upon Koremac as a sure
winner. Certainlvif poolselling had been
allowed there would have been thousands ofi
dollars invested on his chance of victory.
There is an old saving, however, to the
effect that there is nothing so uncertain as
certainties, and it may be so in the race in
question. At present Noremac is leading, but
his lead is really so small that he is by no
means a certain winner. Last evening be was
only a little over four miles ahead of Hegelman
and about five in front of Connors. A lead of
this kind amounts to very little in a night and
day race. Both Hegelman and Connors are
going well, particularly the latter.
The trio made things extremely lively and
exciting all day yesterday. Hour after hour
they ambled round the track until the thous
ands of spectators wondered whether or not
there is any limit to human endurance. Nore
mac is certainly a wonderful and gritty little
man, and his two rivals stuck to him like two
shadows. If the Scotchman wins he will cer
tainly have recollections of being in a race.
Present intentions are to test him thoroughly,
that is if Hegelman and Connors can do it.
Jimmy Taylor, one of the attendants of Hegel
man and Connors, said last evening:
BOTH IK GOOD SHAPE.
"Our two boys are feeling tolerably well and
they intend to either crack themselves or crack
Noremac after they are certain of getting over
the 475-mile mark. "We are aware that Nore
mac is a very tough man to tackle, but there is
nothing won without an effort."
It would seem from the above statement that
both Hegelman and Connors intend to make a
final and big effort, that is if they can hold to
gether long enough. They are running as a
team and will certainly help each other in
every legitimate way. Noremac however, is a
veteran at the game and is aware of all the
moves that are going on. He watches Hegel
man like a hawk,and when tne latter leaves
the track so does Noremac. The race is des-
Serate and exciting at every stage. Of course
oremac like anybody else is liable to collapse
at any stage, but he is full of confidence. It
seems safe to say that from to-day to the finish
the struggle will be one of the keenest wit
Horan, the youth of IS summers, is still plod
ding his weary way like a little hero. His grit
has made him a general favorite and he is the
object of as much applause as any other con
testant. He seems certain to get over the
limit and be deserves to be a good winner.
Messier looked a complete wreck yesterday.
He is suffering intensely from a sick stomach.
He gets a share of the money. Adams can get
money if he exerts himself as some others lare
Probably Peter Golden is displaying more
Eluck than anybody on the track. He has
een somewhat of a disappointment in this
race, but his sufferings are severer than those
of any other man in the race. He fainted two
or three times yesterday and his agony was
awful. His feet, legs and stomach are all in
very bad condition. He means to reach 475
miles, however, or drop on the track. Cart-wright-is
no longer a dangerous man, as he has
been overtaken by sickness. Little Sammy
Say and his smiling face have disappeared
from the contest. Last evening Sammy reas
oned as follows:
HE BROKE DOTV2.-.
"I played myself out in covering the first 200
miles sooner than I ought to have done. I
broke down, and it takes so long to recover
that it is useless for me to expect to get a piece
of the money. I cannot win anything and I
don't intend to travel for nothing. When I
cannot win 1 want nothing, and think it best to
leave the race."
The attendance last evening was larger than
it has been on any evening this week. The
building was crowded to excess. The crowd
was kept in excellent humor by the spurts of
old Norman Taylor and the antics of "Parson"
FBESEXTED WITH MONET.
Hegelman left the track at 10:19, and went to
have a bath. He reappeared after an absence
of 2:40 minutes, and ran three miles, making
the ntstfin' eight minntes. When he resumed
his journey both Noremac and Connors were
off the track, The latter was also having a
bath, and had left the track in second
place. Noremac vas only off. a half
hour, and he rejoined Hcgelmin when
the latter had gotten within four miles and a
half of him. When Noremac go: warmed up
some fine spurting commenced and one en
thusiastic admirer of the little Scotchman
handed him a $10 bilL Hegelman nad friends
and a minute later he was also made equal
with Noremac in the bill way. Shortly after 1
o'clock Hegelman retired and left only
Noremac and Tilly and Brown on the
track. Noremac disappeared when he had
made the distance between himself and Hegel
man an even five miles. Connors reappeared
at 120, after an absence of one hour and 30
minutes. Messier became very sick and a
physician had to be summoned. He expects to
be all right, however, to reach the limit. "Par
son" Tilly was doing his somersaults at 1:45.
Hegelman was on the track again at 125.
Golden also had a bath and was cheered when
he reappeared on the track at 1:30. after an ab
sence1 of an hour and 45 minutes. Noremac
didn't waste much time and was soon on the
track again. Following was the score:
WITH BARE FISTS.
A Rattling Fight In the Twelfth Ward The
There wasa rattling bare knuckle fight In
the Twelfth ward early yesterday morning be
tween Jack Jenks and W. Sommers, both of
Allegheny. The encounter took place in a
stable, and was witnessed by about a dozen
sports. The stakes were 50 a side. The men
fought at catch weight, Jenjcs weighing about
170 pounds and Sommers a few pounds lighter.
Queensberry rules governed.
The battle onlv lasted three rounds, but it was
lively during that time. Jenks was too .strong
and a trifle too clever for his man, and admin
istered severe .punishment. In the third round
he caught Sommers on the jaw with a swinging
blow, and ended the fight.
Last evening the backer of William Bissell
called at this office and left the following chal
lenge, accompanied by a forfeit of J10:
"William Bissell will fight Jack Jenks, who
defeated Sommers, for 100 a side, at catch
weight A forfeit of $10 is now put up in TnE
Dispatch office, and will remain there for a
week, so that the Jenks party can have a chance
to cover it and name a date of meeting."
The following is a copy of the challenge Jake
Kilrain, the champion, has issued in the Sport
ing Life, London, to fight Jem Smith, the En
It is pleasing to me that Jem Smith prefers to
fight London prize ring rules, for I think that is
my game, and the sooner we get together and ar
range a date for a contest the better pleased I shall
be. I do not wish for any newspaper controversy;
all I want Is a straightforward match. The same
articles at the last match (XI, 000 a side, the relict
Gazette diamond belt and championship of the
world) will suit me admirably, with only one al
teration that Is. fighters to be in the ring between
10 and 12 noon and bar France. 1 have no 111 feel
ing toward Smith, but there has been a lot of com
ment and talk about our respective merits, and I
should like the much-vexed question to be duly
settled. It is purely a matter of business no ill
reeling whatever, international or otherwise.
Hoping that Smith or M backers will fix upon a
date In the near future, when lfeel confident we
shall come to terms readily without rurtber pala
ver or correspondence.

Louisville, April IL The Looisvllles ad
ministered another defeat to the Alleghenies
to-day in the presence of a large crowd. The
weather was fine, but a high wind was blowing
wMch made it hard on the fielders. For a time
Galvin's fast and slow balls fooled the local
players, but after the third inning they found
no trouble in batting him, and piled up a total
of 19 bases. Beckley and Kuehne were both
off in their work, and Smith made a costly
error. Stratton' did the twirling for the Louis
Tilles, and' while he was batted freely kept the
League men from bunching the hits on him,
the nine behind him fielding admirably except
in the third inning, when Brownine, Ester
brook and Shannon made errors. Shannon,
with that single exception, played a brilliant
game at second. Weaver made four difficult
catches in center field, and Wolf scored a
beautiful donble play, cutting off Coleman at
the third base by a throw from right field.
Tomney also played a fine game, and Stratton
fielded his position to perfection. Dunlap
made a brilliant one-handed stop of a hard hit
grounder, and Smith did good work at short.
In the second inning Shannon led off with a
hit and Stratton sent a grounder to Galvln, but
Beckley muffed the throw and both runners
were safe. Tomney made a hit past first and
Browning drove a hot one to Smith forcing
Stratton out at second. Wolf made a hit ana

DE9IPSEY IS WILLING.
The Nonpareil Rcndy to Fight Rcngnn at
New York, April IL Jack Dempsey saw
the story that the Southern California Athletic
Club, of Los Angeles, had offered a purse o
3,000 for himself and Johnny Reagan to fight
for. He hurried to the Police Gazette office, in
company with Denny Costigan, Tom Evans and
Prof. Hcaly. A messenger was dispatched to
find Reagan or his backer, Billy Reia, but
neither could be found, and after waiting two
hours the Nonpareil went to his hotel opposite
Folton Market. He said to a reporter:
"In order to get on a match with Reagan I
would be willing to have the fight decided
under Marquis of Queensberry rules, although
championship battles are invariably decided
under London prize ring rules, at which I am
perfectly at home. I would be willing to con
cede Reagan $1,000 of the purse, win or lose,
and there certainly could be nothing fairer than
Reagan conld not be seen last evening, bnt it
was saia that he would adhere to his desire not
to meet Dempsey until he had fought Mitchell
A PROMISING PUGILIST.
Joey McCarty, of This City. Wants an En
gnsemetit. There is another local pugilist likely to come
to the front. "The young man is known as
"Joey McCarty," and is a lightweight. He has
been under the tuition of Prof. Tom Sterck for
about three months, and has been such an apt
pupil that his friends now want a match for
him. He is a Pittsbmger, ana exceedingly well
built for a lightweight.
Prof. Sterck, who is a good judge of a boxer,
deems young "McCarty" a very promising man.
Already Sterck has introduced some first-class
men to the world, and McCarty may turn out
to be another star. At any rate efforts are be
ing made to secure him a match entirely to see
whether he is good. Dad or indifferent. He is
one of the best in his class.

rivalry between Franklin and Oil City in snort
ing matters, and things were brought to a focus
last night. A foot race was arranged between
F. J. Edwards, of Franklin, and a L Garrison,
of Oil City, for a purse of S100, at 100 yards dis
tance. Both the men were "ringers," Garrison
being sent up from Pittsburg by Nikirk, while
Edwards is an unknown professional.
The race was run at the fair grounds here last
evening, and was easily won by Edwards.
Large delegations from the two cities were
present, and the excitement ran high, but little
money was bet, as Oil City did not have confi
dence in her man, and refused to put up.

A PLEA FOE CONCEALMENT.
Snlcide of a Girl Who Left a Note Saying It
IEFECTAL TELEQBAU TO TOT DISPATCILl
New Tore, April IL Justine Genez,
the 23-year-old daughter of August G.
Genez, proprietor of the Morrisania Schuet
zen Park, killed herself this morning with
a big revolver. The heavy bullet dog a
hole in her head almost' as large round as a
nan's index finger. Her father was away
from home.and he was informed by a neigh
bor as he was walking toward his house.
One of her sisters had been visiting in
Brooklyn, and while on the elevated road
bound home was horrified to read of the
tragedy. Justine, who was the oldest daugh
ter and had been out of health for years, was
not in her right mind.
She got the big pistol from behind the
bar about 10 o'clock in the morning and
went upstairs to her mother's room. Her
mother came into the house abaut.lS min
utes later and found the girl's body lying
across the closed door of the bedroom. The
door could not be opened without pushing
it away. The pistol lay beside her. On
the floor was a scrap of paper with these
lines scribbled in German:
Tell nobody that I did it intentionally. Say
that the pistol bad never lain there, and that I
must have handled it carelessly. Many kisses
from yours, JUSTINE.

Accused by Canadians of Selling Their Pro
dnct Under False Pretenses.
Ottawa, April IL In the House of
Commons to-day Hr. Vanasse asked
whether the Government was aware
that certain cheese dealers in the
United States were in the habit of
marking on cheese exported by them to
England, via Montreal, the words "Cana
dian products," greatly to the detriment of
the real Canadian article in the English
market, and whether the Government
proposes to adopt means to put an
end to this fraud, which involves
consequences greatly prejudicial to the
Canadian producer. .
Sir John Macdonald, in reply, said the
matter had already been brought to his at
tention, and that tne only solution he saw
was to make the offense a penal one.

UNIFORMITY IN TEXT BOOKS.
A Determined Attempt to Discourage tho
School Book Syndicate.
tTROU A STAFF COBBESF02TDEXT.I
HABBiSBirBO, April 11. Dr. StS will
to-morrow endeavor to get a special order
for his bill providing for uniformity of text
books in public schools. Five bills, aiming
in general at this object, but differing in scope
and detail, were Introduced early in the session,
one of them simultaneously in the House and
Senate. They were all negatived, and tBo
authors of all of them complain that the in
fluence of the Department of Public Instruc
tion was brought to bear on the committees of
the Honse and Senate to produce this work.
The charge that the bills were in the interest
of a school book ring, or that they would give
birth to one, were made by repre
sentatives of what the authors of
the bills call the school book trust
or syndicate. The gentlemen feel particularly
sore concerning an interview in which Superin
tendent Luckey, of Pittsburg, spoke to the
same effect. Mr. Luckey was also here to talk
against the bills. They cllamthat the intent of
the bills is the direct opposite of what was
represented. Dr. NefTs bill permitted the
bludincof books In State institutions, and he
now desires, if he can get it on the calender, to
amend it to include the printing.
The bills in general provide tor a commission
of some kind to edit, compile, or select the
books to be used, and give the commission wide
latitude in the selection of the books and the
purchase of copyrights. It is probably too late
in this session to do much with any of the
measures now, except to agitate them.
WILL GO TO THE CENTENNIAL.
The Legislature nnd Governor Beaver to
Represent the Kevstono State.
FltOM A STAFF CORRESPOND ETTO
Habbisbubq, April 11. By a vote of 20
to 13, the Senate voted to have the Legisla
ture and the Governor and his staff go to
New York in a body to aid in the proper
celebration of the centennial of the inaugura
tion of General Washington as President of
the United States.- Senator Robinson, Senator
Brown, of York, and Senator Green opposed it
The former didn't want to waste the State's
money, and the two latter didn't want to waste
the time that shonld be devoted to legislation.
Senator .Newmyer was a strong opponent of
the trip, but contented himself with voting
against it. Senator Delamater voted for it.
Senators Reyburn and George Handy Smith
spoke in favor of it as a patriotic demonstra
tion in which Pennsylvania shonld not permit
herself to be outshone. Senator Reyburn said
Massachusetts carried off the honors of our
own centennial, and shonld not be permitted to
do it this time. Representative Kidd, Chair
man of the Honse Centennial Affairs Commit
tee, was to-day authorized to go to New York
to make the necessary arrangements for ac
commodations. When the announcement of the Senate's
concurrence in the House resolution was read
to the latter body, Mr. Fow demanded to know

Railroad Lobbyists Repeating Old Tricks to
Gnln Their End. "
' rFROM A STAFF COBBKSFOlnJEST.l
Habbisbubq, April 11. Warm work
was in progress in a quiet way to-day, on
Mr. Wherry's anti-discrimination bill. He
will ask a special order lor it in the morning.
The railroad representatives have been labor
ing to keep their own friends from leaving be
fore the matter comes up to-morrow, and to
get as many as possible of Mr, Wherry's sup
porters to go away.
Several ardent- Prohibltionists.were indnced
to vote against adjournment last Tuesday by
the judicious use by the lobbyists of the fact
that a liquor bill was a special order for that
evening. The bill was Mr. Fow's license trans
Chairman Andrews and Senator Delamater
established headquarters to-night In the chief
clerk's room, and had doubtful members
brought in to see them. They promised that if
Mr. Wherry's bill were killed they would bring
in one themselves next week.
NOT POSTED ON MANUAL TEAINING.-
Representative Wherry Doesn't Want the
Country Taxed for the Towns.
FROM A STAFF COREXSPONDENT.1
Habbisbubq, April IL Mr. Wherry
to-day attacked the manual training bill
because it appropriated $100,000 to start the
system in the boroughs and cities. He said
It was, in effect, levying a tax on the country
for the benefit of the towns, and he'declared he
wasn't sufficiently enlightened on the manual
training question to vote for it. After a long
and able argument in lavor of mannal train
inc. Colonel Bean, its champion, had the bill
Mr. Kxatz tried this afternoon to knock out,
the $30,000 appropriation' for manual training
in normal schools, but only got six votes on his
WflEEEY'S IDEA GEOWIHG.
Republican Leaden May Adopt His Sink
ing Knnd Resolution.
Habbisbubq, April IL There is a
rumor abroad that the Republican leaders
are considering Mr. 'Wherry's resolution for
the fnture regulation of the sinking fund,
And.thatthey will probably take it up and
pass it. The amendment of section 29 of
the general revenue bill to decrease the
amount of money going into the sinking fund.
Is Interpreted as a move in Mr. 'Wherry's di
rection. The amendment was made at the sug
gestion, of the Auditor General. Mr. Wherry,
however, says that owing to the large increase
of revenues expected from the capital stock
tax, the supposed move in his direction is more
apparent than real.
Mr. Wherry read the'edltorlal in this morn
ing's Dispatch on his sinking fnnd resolution
and then said: "I thank Tux Dispatch for
its uniform courtesy, and compliment it on its
usual accuracy. But had, the joint sicking
fund resolution been before yon, yon would
have seen that I propose to dp the very thing
you recommend." Mr, Wherry's resolution
Tbe sinking fund commissioners shall Invest on
or before June 1. 18S9, all of the cash surplus in
tbe sinking fund in United States4per cent bonds,
excent six months Interest on tne State debt, and
enough to meet any actually pending negotiations
for the purchase of State loans, and 0(X) addi
tional, provided such bonds can be purchased at a
nnhlirher nremlnm thnn m n tiin,lnllr.
and that after June 1, 18!9, the cash surplus In tbe
sinking fund on September I, December 1, March
1 ana June 1. In each year, shall be invested In
United States 4per cent bonds, except six months'
Interest on tbe State debt, and enough to meet
any.actually pending negotiations for the pur
chase of State loans, and S25O.CO0 In addition, pro
vided thai tbe State can thus realize, by purchas
ing and holding such bonds until maturity, not
less than 2 per cent jper annum. That after Au
gust 1, 18M, the sinking fund commissioners shall
not purchase any State loans at so high a pre
mium, that the purchase of such State bonds
would not realize within one-half of 1 per cent as
large an Interest as would the purchase of
United States per cent bonds at the
market rate at the time the State bonds
are offered by the commissioners for purchase to
the State, and that, if the State bonds cannot be
purchased at a rate showing .to within at least
one-half of 1 per cent as large a rate of Interest as
would the purchase of the United States bonds at
the market rate, the commissioners shall proceed
to purchase United States bonds at the said mar
ket rate, and keep them as a reserve In the fund
until maturity, or until such time as their sale
would enable the State to purchase its own bonds
at a rate whlchVould realize to tbe State an equal
interest, or an interest which shall not be more
than one-half of 1 ner cent, less than the interest
which would be realized from the United States
bokds If held to maturity.
Concerning the editorial reference to the
difference in value between State and Govern
ment bonds, Mr. Wherry points ont that the
sinking fund commissioners last year paid from
115 to 118 for State 5s, payable in 1891, while,
at the same time, State 4a. with 25 years to run,
sold at 121. It is claimed now that State bonds
can be bought as low as 107, but Mr. Wherry

A Successful Copartnership
Our notion of the best way to gain your confidence and
make low prices is peculiar.
With us, quality marches at the head.
There are plenty of goods used in the Clothing trade
known as "sellers." They take a b.uyer's fancy by their fine .
looks and little price; they bamboozle by appearance. It is
only when he comes to wear such clothing that he realizes
how big a price that little price was. We shun such goods
We believe in a valuable article first fair price next.
This is only another way of showing how far our guar
antee goes it begins with the cloth before a stitch or a cut
goes into it :
A price is low only when it stands for reliable clothing.
That co-partnership is sure to succeed, we know.
