The County Lentrue Smooths Dorrn Their
An important meeting of the Allegheny
County Baseball League was held last night,
and as a result the unpleasantries that have
been causing trouble recently were smoothed.
over. All the clubs were represented, and the
meeting was extremely animated from start to
The most important business nas the rumored
resignation of Secretary W. J. Barr. Fortu
nately for the League, that gentleman was pre
vailed upon by friends at the meeting
to not present his resignation. He,
however, claimed that he had just
grounds for complaint. For some time past
several players have been alleging that he has
been tampering with the averages to favor his
own record. The absurdity of this was shown
when it was stated that he does not take any
scores at all. Each clnb has an official scorer.
However, the meeting unanimously passed a
resolntion heartily approving of the untiring
and able efforts of Mr. Barr as Secretary of the
A riEASAKT EESULT.
Thus the matter was ended, and it is to he
hoped that the last of these ungenerous and
ridiculous stories have been circulated. No
friend of the league will start them.
Another Important question was protests
against Paul O'Brien, of the East End Ath
letics, and Klllon, of the Braddock clnb. It
was claimed that O'Brien had reported and
played with the Hamilton club this season, and
that Eiilon had reported and played with Day
ton, O. Section 2 of article II. provides that
any player who is or has been under contract
with any major or minor league clnb after
March 8, of this year. Is not eligible to play In
the County League. After considerable dis
cussion It was shown that
SXTXHEB PLAYEB HAS SIGNED
with the clubs named and the protests were not
sustained. A committee was then appointed
to make the rule regarding the eligibility of
players more definite.
Another difficulty was encountered on the
umpire question. There was a strong kick
against TV. C. Wilson by McKeesport, who
claimed he had no idea of balls and strikes.
The Riverside Grevs and the Homesteads also
protested against his lmpenousness. The bal
ance of the clubs, however, had not seen him
tested and he was retained by a vote of 6 to 4.
Three umpires resigned, viz: W. Q. Taylor,
L. C Hacker and W. 8. Barr. They were re
placed by Samuel Rose, or Braddock; Thomas
Zacbarias, Homestead, and 8. Grcnet, of Alle
gheny. A committee was appointed to fill all
future vacancies caused by the retirement of
umpires. The committee is: M. P. Schooly, C.
G. Eeenan and F. W. Torreyson.
The various reports showed that the league
is getting along very well.
IT RAINED AS USUAL.
Almost All Games Stopped A Worthy
Rain again almost completely demoralized
baseball yesterday. Out of eight games ar
ranged by the League and Association clubs
only three were played. Of course, among the
victims of the rain were the Pittsburgs. If a
bucketful of rain falls in a day these unfor
tunates are almost sure to be under it. The
other games stopped were: Chicago-Indlanapo-lis,
and Association games at Columbus, Balti
more ana Brooklyn.
It may be remarked that the Athletics and
LouisTUles set a worthy example yesterday.
Probably no club It poorer than the Louis- -i
of the Johnstown sufferers. They will, lose
nothing by it, for there is always a public de
sire to patronize any body of men who are gen
erous enough to befriend the unfortunate when
seed requires it

Charley Zimmerman, another well-known
sportingman of Johnstown, is almost left pen

left in the world was his young trotter' at
Homewood. He wanted Mr. Campbell to go
out there and take the horse out of training;
have him fatten up and sell him. so as to realize
a few dollars.
"I haven't a cent to pay for his training
now." said Mr. Zimmerman.

New York, June 7. Contributions for the
relief of the flood sufferers continued to pour
in during the day. Among the contributions
received by the Chamber of Commerce was
1,000 from the London and Brazilian Bank of
London. The Chamber of Commerce collec
tions amount to $32 68. At the. Mayor's office
to-day a number of men ont of employment
offered their services to go to Johnstown. They
were told they were not needed.
Some difference of opinion appear in the
following dispatches received by the Mayor
from Governor Beaver and from Mayor Mc
callln, of Pittsburg. The Governor says:
Mindful of your snggestlon of first communica
tion In regard to holding my funds for later ex
clgcncles, I have been exceedingly cautious, and,
In tbe estimation of many whose feelings are much
Involved, criminally conservative. My thought
had been to have funds contributed by our people
first exhausted, then to have all funds coming
lrom outside the State expended under authority
of a general committee, which 1 propose to have
organized at a conference between the Mayor of
Philadelphia, representatives of the Johnstown
committee and myself in Philadelphia to-morrow,
1 am, perhaps, too sensitive about spending
other people's money: but, so long as our own
lasts, I did not wish to spend a dollar of tbe trust
funds given me for such a sacred purpose, with
out tbe authority of the tribunal whose dignity
and Integrity should be recognized bv tbe world.
In this I think I am In harmony with your com
mittee and people elsewhere. If It
Is possible, send me an estimate of the funds you
control berore I go to Philadelphia to-morrow.

'A dispatch from Mayor McCallin, of Pitts

Governor Beaver during tho day telegraphed
that disinfectants were badly heeded.
A telegram was sent Uovernor Beaver by
Mayor Grant commending the position taken
by tbe former as given above. "It shonld be
the aim and work of us all," the dispatch con
tinues, "to concentrate tbe use of the money to
a substantial committee, such as yon propose.

"We will help you to do this. Tbe time will

A second dispatch was received from Pitts
burg. It was addressed to Treasurer Simmons,
and signed Thomas Hackett and J. C. Morris,
Committee of the Relief Board. After statintr
that tbe committee had wired the exchanges
here asking for funds, the dispatch goes on:
Pittsburg Is the onlr point of access to the
scene or disaster from which contributions and
supplies can be forwarded, therefore they order
and depend almost entirely npon us for all sup
plies. We have been at enormous expenses are
now about out of funds. We must have some at

rrBOM A BTATF COBEXBPONEINT.l
JomtSTOWif, June 7. Comparisons between
Governor Beaver, of Pennsylvania, and Govr.
nor Foraker, of Ohio, are being made
on every hand. It is hardly necessary
to state that the aforesaid com
parisons areas odious to the former as.they
are complimentary to the latter. The fiery,
but big-hearted, Chief Executive of the Back
eye State grasped the Importance of the situa
tion in the distance, while the "soldier states
man" from Bellefont has, apparently, just dis
covered that the flood of the Conemaugh was
something more than a cross roads washout.
At noon to-day General Daniel F. Mmaban.
of Springfield, 0., arrived here with the fol
lowing self-explanatory letter to General D.
COLUMBUS, O. i
General D. H. Hastings:
This will be handed to yon by General D. F.

J. B. Fobaexr.
General Mlnahan says that when he left the
Executive Department Detective J. T. Norris,
who had just returned from this fated district,
was relating the harrowing scenes that had
come under his own personal knowledge to the
Governor and Mrs. Foraker.
"The tales were too much for Mrs. Foraker."
said General Mlnahan, "and she had to leave
the room. As for tbe Governor, he told me to
state to General Hastings that Ohio stood ready
to do any and everything in her power to allevi

When General Minahan presented Ata letter
from Governor Foraker to General Hastings
this evening tbe latter referred him to Mr.
Flinn, who in turn informed the General that,
although be would greatly like to have the as
sistance of his men, he had no authority to send
lor them. 'He said, however, that fully 5,000 or
them could he used to the best of advantage.
With this intelligence General Minahan tele
graphed the entire situation to tbe Governor
Later in the night a reply to the effect that
the Governor would send the men on his own
responsibility, and that Ohio would stand good
for the payment of their wages, was received.
This sent Foraker stock up with a boom, and
the man for the emergency became tbe lion of
the town. General Minahan was very sore at
the treatment be had received, and he in
timated in no weak terms that the entire dis
trict up here is sadly In need of a head.

JoHifSTOWif, June 7. The Council, in behalf
of the destitute people of Cambria City, wbo
were fortunate enongh to be saved, have en
tered a protest against the contemplated re
moval of the relief station from that place to
Morrellvllle, They hold that their citizens are
placed to a vast inconvenience by having to
walk a mile for provisions, and even then the
best of the goods Is given to tbe Morrellvllle
people. A building is now being erected by
them for a storehouse, and they claim if the
station is removed it will Jcavo them in desti
tute circumstances. Reports of dissatisfaction
have been drifting about the different military
quarters to tbe effect that rations were short
and the pangs ot hunger had struck some of
the soldiers. Especially in Company E was
this kick most apparent. General Hastings
heard of the matter, and personally made a
tour of tbe encampment, and afterward said to

Johnstoww, Jane 7. The flood could give
Judge White several points and 'then beat him
on tbe game of how to knock out tbe saloons.
The Judge succeeded in killing a great many of
the Pittsburg saloons, but the flood knocked
out more In proportion than His Honor ever
.dreamed of. There is only one saloon now in
Johnstown and Conemaugh boroughs oat of
very nearly 100 before the flood. In Portage
and Conemaugh boroufhs there were Ave sa
loons on Railroad street. The bar sign was
numerous, and on Washington street, Johns
town, every other house was a saloon. There
were three wholesale liquor stores In the town,
and theywere all wiped out.
The localities spoken of belonged to the
drinking portion or Johnstown. It was right
in tbe path of tbe flood, and the buildings were
floated off, together with their contents. The
only one left is the Fourth Ward House, on
Bedford avenue, which has been closed by the
Sheriff on account of the disaster. There are
no saloons left in Conemaugh now, where there
were about 25 before. In a great many cases
the keepers of the places were taken out with
their houses and drowned. The thirsty citizens
of the boroughs are now doing -without their
beer, as it is impossible to get it anywhere.
The "speak-easles" are mors numerous
here than they are In Pittsburg. Many persons
coming from Pittsburg appoint themselves
private whisky commissioners, and'one cannot
turn after the arrival of a train without having
a number of bottles thrust under his nose.
Strange to say there is no drunkenness. It
may be said, however, that the most of the
whisky is of a very poor quality. "Good stuff"
is hard to get, and thoso who have it do not an
nounce the fact with a brass born.
The citizens of the town are now getting into
shape for tke resumption of work on their
houses. About one out of every four has
turned his place into an eating saloon. where he
poses as chef and makes a bluff at selling meals.
lhey have laid in a supply or provisions, ana
are ready to take one's order on short notice.
The menu is variegated and peculiar, bat the
viands fill a long felt want. FaPcy prices are
being charged by the hotel keepers, and in the
language of tbe American youth, "everything
goes" except the butter.
This was indeed true of one great hotel in the

Pennsylvania between Philadelphia and Pitts

tbe entire flooded district, commencing atAl

first definite ana authentic information as to
losses which the road has sustained. He styles
it tbe greatest series of disasters ever-falling to
the lot of any single railroad to bear, and was
himself astounded at the devastation wrought
by tbe floods both east and west of the mount
ains. Mr. Pettit said to me that any other rail
road in the country would be seriously embar
rassed by such an enormous loss. Ono thing
that Mr. Pettit emphasized struck me forcibly.
"It takes such an accident as this," said he, "to
bring out the wisdom of having alternate lines
in all directions. There have been tbose'wbo

been demonstrated as wise. The road would

A SKETCH OF VIRGIL,
Major Brace Tells tho History of the Famous
Major B. G. Bruce, of Lexington, Ky the
well-known turfman and writer on tbe thor
oughbred, gives the following' sketch of the
famous thoroughbred horse Virgil:
"1 owned Virgil, probably the greatest sire
after Lexington in America's history. He was
given to me and I tried to sell him for 300, but
was laughed at. As a runner he was not a
brilliant success, and he was sold to Bob Sim
mons, who turned him into asteeplechaser. He
did not prove very good at that, and he was
driven around In a buggy, and finally became
the property of M. H. Sanf ord. He was a gen
eral utility animal on the' tatter's .farm. Hay
wood, Mr. Sanford's stallion, having been taken
sick, Virgil covered a few of the marcs until
the former became well. Then Mr. Sanford
gave tbe black horse to me. and I -m.
sure you I thought I had a white elephant, sim-
viy uecause x uau no use lor sucn an animal
1 tried to sell him to Colonel W. H. Jackson for
$300, and ne declined with, thanks. 1 then gave
half of him to Williams & Owens for the care
of him. He made a season in Franklin countv,
but covered no mares. The next year one of
his colts. Vagrant, came out as a 2-year-old.
This attracted attention to him. and General
Jackson offered $500 for him. I, however, told
him that I would give Mr. Sanford the first
chance at him, and so I did. Vagrant, as a 3-
year-oio, won iub ijouisvuie AerDy, tne second
one run for, ana I sold bis sire to Mr. Sanford
for S2.0U0. General Jackson continued to want
him bad, and Mr. Sanford priced him at $10,000.
His colts continued to prove wonders, and
Pierre Lorillard asked General Jackson to see
Mr. Sanford and buy him. Tbe latter replied
that he had put a figure of $10,000 on him, but
he wanted $60,000. Mr. Swigert, his original
owner, got blm when be purchased tho Sanford
property. Among his great sons are Vigil,
Hindoo and a couple of score of others."

rrSOM A STATE ConniSPOXDXST.1
Johnstown, June 7. At Captain Logan's
headquarters at Horrellnllev is a busy scene.
Messengers and clerks are coming and going at
all hours; trains are unloaded, and wagons con
vey the goods to warehouses, where packages
are opened and goods sorted and classified.
From these warehouses goods are sent in
wagons to Kernville, which is not accessible
by rail, and to Cambria City and other local
points. Morrellrille Is the principal distrib
uting station. Supplies are sent from here in
all directions.' General Hastings applies to
Cantain Logan for what is needed on his side of
the bridge. The committee then ascertain the
contents of a car, and whatever is needed is
shipped up tbe road and over the bridge by
rail. If a car cannot be secured containingthe
proper supplies one is loaded from the ware
houses and sent over.
Owing to the fact that boxes are packed In-
L discrimlnately and as a rule no schedules are
sent along, it is necessary to unpack and sort
everything. Clerks keep an acconnt of all
goods received and all goods forwarded to
other points, and as supplies are only given
out on orders an accurate record is kept of all
the work done.
Young's livery stable, a large building, has
been turned into a grocery warehouse. The
.zed planing mill ana the white planing mill,
both immense structures, were offered by
their owners and accepted as warehouses for
clothing, bedding and other supplies. Last
night about 10 o'clock the Methodist church
was secured and ten carpenters put to work.
'Boards were nailed over tbe pews, the church
divided into sections and supplies of clothing
placed in each. One section contains boys'
clothing, another contains men's clothing,
another women's, another misses', another
boots and shoes, and so on. A bookkeeper sits
in tho pulpit and ladles of Morrellvllle and
vicinity act as clerks.
The road to Cambria has been cleared. E.
A. Carrol took ont a force of men and teams.
Local men were put to work on tbe road. In
some places it was covered by mud and mortar.
It is a good road now, and goods can be put
into Cambria City in quick time.
The Supply of Provisions
ran low there last night, and this morning a
delegation of the leading people came over
with a schedule of things needed. Tbeywere
sent at once. Six teams loaded with all they
could carry over the mountain road were sent
to Kernville this morning, where there is great
need of them. Last night the Pennsylvania
Railroad put in a side track at the Morrellvllle
headquarters, and relief cars are run fn there.
The cars can now be unloaded into wagons.
Before it was necessary to unload them on the
ground to clear the main tracks, and transport
them as it was possible to do it. Co'umbus and
Cleveland have been most systematic in their
contributions. Three heavily-laden freight
cars came in from Cleveland yesterday. Ten
men were required to handle some of the boxes.
The cars were laden for tbe most part with
clothing, and one gentleman said they were so
closely packed it was almost Impossible to find
room for a fly in one of them. The contents of
each box was scheduled thereon, and the com
mittee didn't have to unpack them to make
this discovery. This is an example that ought
to be followed generally.
Columbus citizens sent 1C0 wooden pails, each
packed with six cups and saucers, six plates,
'-one vegetable disb, one teapot, six knives, six
forks, six table sdoous. a dozen teaspoons, a
r pound of tea, a pound of coffee, and to the
handle of each pall was tied a coffee pot. The
State of Ohio, besides sending a lot of tents,
sent hospital supplies In the shape of canned
fruits, jellies and other delicacies. The cloth
ing that came from Cleveland was the contri
bution of J. L. Hudson and Hull & Co , and
was all new. "This," said one gentleman In
charge of tbe supplies, "is more than can be
said for lots of the clothing sent here. Much
of it should never have Deen sent. It should
have been burnt."
There are 15 members of the Americas Clab
at Morrellville. They have 100 men on their
payrolls at $2 a day. Yesterday 70 men were
engaged cleaning the street to Cambria City
and burning the animals in the neighborhood.
To-day the streets and gutters of Morrellville
were placed in good sanitary condition. The
Americas workers suffer greatly from lack of
sleep. Some who have been hero have gone
home to recuperate, and will return; others
have come here to take ibelr places. H. D.
W. English and A, T. Edwards were at work at
headquarters until 2 -o'clock this morning.
They were up and at It again at 5. This is a
sample of how all are working, partly because
of tbe smallness of the force, and partly be
cause of the fact that trains are arriving at all
hours of tbe day and night, and it is necessary
to unload them at once. .
Lack of sleep is, in a measure, compensated
for by the fact that the commissary department
is excellent. Quarters have been secured at
the hotel here, and a range has been placed In
the yard. A frame structure will be erected
Now laughs the sun ; the south-wind blows ;
Three merry maids hang out the clothes ;

President Holllday la Charge.
President George Holllday, of tbe Pittsburg
Select Council, has ceneral supervision of as
signment of men to different places, and while
ne is Testing helps to unload trains, relieve
clerks and does anything else that comes bis
way. The commissary, where the members of
the club the officers and workers breakfast,dlne
and sup, is in charge of J. D. Little. C. A. Car
rol has charge of tbe transportation, cleaning
and unloading. At Young's Hall, where tbe
KiuvciicsMp Biuxeu, win xieeae jitro ijmjku
Robert Knox has csatge of the stores at the
planing mills and J. O. Petty has charge of the
M. E. uhurcb, where supplies are stored.
J. M. Gillespie has charge of the
teams, and has been very much
worried to find oats for them. To-day a car
load arrived and were as welcome as any con
tribution that has been received. It is tbe first
tbe horses have had. All the teams are secured
from the people of the vicinity. Two car loads
of dishes of all kinds were received here yes
terday. One was retained and one sent to tbe
other side. What is most needed now is a sap
ply of cooking utensils, knives and forks, tin
ware and mattresses. It is estimated that 5,000
persons are dependent on Morrellville for re
lief. Mrs. Forsyth has arrived from Pittsburg to
aid the Morrellvllle committee to look up cases
of persons who are In need, bat who do not ap
ply for aid. One case was beard ot at Sheridan
to-day, and Mrs. Forsyth was sent to ascertain
what is necessary for relief. James McConahy
was f onnd there at the point of death from in
juries received in the flood. Two daughters,
who had been saved from tbe flood with blm,
were there, wretchedly clothed. They bad
possessed much property in Johnstown and
asked no aid from a feeling of false pride.
Tney said people would not believe they were
in such want if they did ask.
Thoso who have charge of the distribution of
goods by wagon say few suspect the wretched
condition of Kernville. In one bouso that was
visited the woman who came to the door
Was Asked How Many
there were in her family? "There are about
0," she replied. Tbe men with tbe wagon
were incredulous; but investigattd and discov
ered it to be true. They were victims of the
flood. The house was a small one, and tbe
people slept on the floor in the clothing th3y
had saved, without blankets or other protection
from tbe chill that descends on the valley in
tbe night. This case Is only an extreme one as
regards the number ot persons in the house. Tbe
poor people where the members of the Relief
Committee go want to pour out long tales of
their sorrows, but tbe men are too busy to stay
to listen. They find out the physical needs
of the people, supply them and go on, while
the poor souls wonder at their seeming lack of
sympathy. But It is not lack of sympathy, but
knowledge of the needs of all that prompts
them to aeny to survivors the poor privilege of
airing their griefs. The sufferers are many and
the relievers few. The work must be done
Mrs. F.S. Jerome, of New York, arrived here
to-day. She is" president of the Yellow Cross
Nurses' Association, and came to find oat what
is needed by the people here. She with And an
