THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, MONDAY, , -AUGUST 12, 1889.'.
J. 7. Waltz Thinks Well of
. Spalding's Scheme.
THE ASSOCIATION AFFAIES.
Baltimore's . Vice President Says
Some Significant Things.
K flE GIVES ADVICE TO PITTSBURG.
Interesting Sunday Games Among
GENERAL SPOETING XEWS OF. THE DAI
J. "W". "Waltz, Vice President of the Bal
timore ball club is in the city. He makes
many important and interesting statements.
President Spalding's plan of organisation
may be adopted by the Association. Pitts
burg is advised to re-enter the Association.
There were several interesting Sunday ball
games. The Thistle may again contest for
the America's cnp.
It is always a pleasure to talk to a base
ball authority like John "W. "Waltz. He is
Vice President ot the Baltimore Association
club and is in the city on business. Mr. "Waltz
has been managing the club tor some time,
Manager Barnie having been sick at home.
The vice president is on his way to Chicago
and intends to bare a conference with Presi
dent Spalding there regarding the latler's new
plan of organization. Dunne a long and Inter
esting conversation, Mr. Waltz said:
"I am fully perssaded that the Association
must do something before next season to keep
salaries down and to prevent the players from
running the business. I 'firmly believe that
Mr. (Spalding's plan will stop Ward and others
from conducting the baseball affairs of the
AKOTHER BROTHERHOOD PROBABLE.
It seems more than probable thatjthe Associa
tion players will form a Brotherhood similar to
that of the League players, and In this event
the stockholders of the various clubs
must do something to protect themselves.
My proposed conference with Mr. Spalding
will be chiefly to hear his own views regarding
the practical working of his scheme. There
may bo some of its details faulty, but I4 think
its general principles are all right. At
any rate, the subject will be discussed at the
Association's annual meeting next fall. If
both orcamzations were to adopt some snch
plan as suggested bv Mr. Spalding the brother
hood would be knocked on the head. How
over, if the Association players do organize we
wouldn't recognize them; at least I can speak
definitely for Baltimore on that point. There
will be a plethora of ball players next season.
Many of the minor leagues will be a thing of J
the past and their players will be to dbpose
Mr. Waltz continued: "I don't believe in the
present classification system of the League.
It is unjust and cannot be a permanent suc
cess. No one man can sit at Washington and
judge as to the financial worth of the players
by the figures that be may read.
AN INJUSTICE POINTED OUT.
Tor instance, I have a man in our team, who
according to the classification plan would be at
the lowest notch. But be is worth much more
to us than that, and we pay him what we think
he is worth. I and other Association officials
believe that a manager is the best judge of a
Speaking of the Pittsburg club Mr. Waltz
eairt: "If Sir. Phillips is never able again to
manage the team, a very valuable man will be
lost: but I have always maintained that the
biggest mistake Pittsburg ever made was in
leaTing the Association. The best thing that
Mr. Niinick and the directors could possibly do
would be to make application for readmisslon.
Depend upon it, the club would make lots of
money, as it was always a great favorite in
Association cities. It always drew well and the
stockholders got lots of cash, bince the team
left us. however, the game has been a losing
one for the stockholders. I have a strong ad
miration for the Pittsburg club and my opinion
on the matter is an honest one; indeed, in my
travels I hear all the friends of the duo ex
press a similar opinion to mine.
NO CHANGES EXPECTED.
"I don't think there will be any changes in
the Association next season," continued Mr.
Waltz. "Of course, I have heard about Cin
cinnati wanting to join the League. President
Uterus, however, is a very changeable, mad and
he says one thing to-day and another to
morrow. But I don't think Cincinnati could be
a League city. Take beer selling and the Sun
day games away from the club and where would
it be? Why. on the Fourth of July we played
two games there and our share was (350. How
ever, if Cincinnati does join tbo League the
Association will still get along all right."
Speaking ot the Association pennant race
Mr. Waltz said: "I don't see how we can stop
St. Louis trom getting the prize again. Brook
lyn certainly is a great team, but tbey seem to
fall to pieces as soon as they collar the leader.
The St. Louis players are hustlers and fight
right to the end. I see Latham has been sus
pended, and this is another of Von dcr Ahe's
foolish tricks. Latham is the soul of the club.
Comisky gets credit for almost everything, but
I tell you that it is Latham that gives the snap
and vim to the game. Take Latham out of the
team for a season and see how it would
go down. Baltimore is playing a good game,
aud we are on the safe side. 1 think we'll make
some inoncv this year. At any .rate we will not
lose any. We have a great plater In young
Quinn. who used to be in the Pittsburg club. I
think he is now as good a catcher as there is in
the Association, and I certainly mean what I
say. PitKDurg let a jewel go when they parted
Jlr. Waltz will leave for Chicago to-morrow
pveuing, and will witness one ot the Pittsburg
Boston cames to-day or to-morrow.

The Thistle Again.
A special cable from Glasgow to the New
York Herald says: This week it has been
rumored in Greenock that Mr. Harry North,
the son of the "Nitrate King," is negotiating
for the purchase of the Thistle with the view
of giving her another chance for the America's
Cup. If the rumor proves correct Mr. North
will have tbe call in the pick of Clyde racing
men, as they are convinced that the Thistle
was not seen at her best at Sandy Hook. The
designer of the Thistle, Watson, has expressed
the opinion that the Thistle's lines are perfect,
and that all she wants is a centerboard.

this week. There are strong rumors that

is tiring of baseball and may sell oat this

club and New Yorkers are enthusiastic
about the Giants' work. Gilliland, the ex
McKeesport pitcher, is doing well down
ISFECIAI. COItBESFEXDIXCX TO Till DISPATCH.!
Washington, August IL There, is a
growing impression among the patrons of
the national game that "Walter Hewitt is
growing weary of being a base ball magnate,
and is systematically unloading his interest
in the Senatorial combination. Tbe late E.
C. Hewitt was a baseball crank, in the
fullest meaning of the term, and I have
frequently heard him say that he would
cheerfully donate $1,000 a year toward the
maintenance of a professional club in this
city, and not ask for any of the profits of the
enterprise. The result was that he put his
boat into the League and ho never tried to
realize a single dollar on the thousands he ex
pended. His son Walter is made of different
material. He cannot bo worked up to the
"crank" point, and ho only looks at baseball
with business eyes.
The elder Hewett was unusually successful in
many of his business ventures, and Walter is
now reaping bis benefits from them. Since the
latter succeeded bis father, as the leading and
producing spirit in the Washington club, bis
sole ambition has been to get back some of the
money his father4nvested In tbe snort. Bv the
most Judicious management, coupled with sev
eral brilliant bursts of enterprise, the younger
Hewitt is now in a position to retire from the
ball field nearlv $50,000 ahead or all outlay.
At the present writing he declines to go into
details as to his future intentions, further than
to smile knowingly and say that be has no in
tentions of leaving the League. He Insists that
because be disposed of Capital Pars: to a good
advantage, it does not necessarily follow that
be contemplates disposing ot his franchise., He
says he is very well satisfied with the present
condition of his team, and he predicts that he
will put even a stronger combination in the
field next season. Ho realizes that he had
hard lurk in some of his speculations early in
the present campaicr, but he has learned sev
eral wholesome lessons, which will be of ma
terial benefit to him in procuring playing tal
ent next year. Thus it will be seen that he
talks like a stayer, yet 'way down In your
boots," as Nick Young often says, tbero is a
suspicion that he may jnmp the game at any
In the meantime the home folk are watching
with interest the performances of the Senators
in the West They cutout a pretty fair start
in Cleveland, and our expectations went np to
boiling point. But after the result ot Wednes
day's dreadful battle was announced, followed
by another defeat in Pittsburg, local enthu
siasm began to simmer down considerably.
It begins to look as though tbe Hoosiers will
have something to sav in the settlement of tbe
pennant contest. Their work of tbe past week
against Boston and New York has occasioned
considerable distress at this end of the line, for
it was hoped the Senators would have the
pleasure of crowding Captain Glasscock's play
ers into tbo tall end position. Such an occur
rence need hardly be looked for now, and the
Senators will have to lock horns with either
Pittsbnrg or Chicago, for Cleveland does not
seem inclined to move mnch further down the
scale. In spite of the recent predictions from
various quarters that "the Spiders are on the
down irrade." O'Brien seems to have regained
his old-time form, and McKean's work at short
and at the bat is very inspiring to .his associ
ates. There is no good reason why thev should
not keep np with the procession and play as
well at the close as they did at tbe opening of

In the meantime, the New Yorks are pressing
forward with commendable energy, and every
day the fact becomes more and more apparent
that more than ordinary skill is employed in
the manipulation of tbe champion team. They
may have their off days, but when the record
is boiled up I will bo surprised if it does not
show that they have had more days on than off.
I cannot close this letter without paying a
compliment to unfortunate Horace Phillip.
During the past two seasons when the Pitts
burg club has visited this city they have always
made tbelr-headquarters at the Arlington Ho
tel. Frank Bennett, whom nearly all of tbe
ball cranks in the country know and admire, is
the manager of the Arlington, and through
him poor Horace Generally transacted his hotel
business. In conversation with Bennett recent
ly he volunteered the statement that Horace
Phillips was probably the best business mana
ger of any traveling combination that ever
made the Arlington its headquarters. He
looked after every little detail, and in all his
transactions be was as straight as a die. Two
days before he was stricken down he wrote a
most rational letter to Mr. Bennett about a
business matter, and there was not the slight
est indication that he was suffering from any
mental trouble. R. M. Laknek.

t BFECIAL COBBXSFOHDENCE OF THE DISPATCIM
Boston, August 10. The Bostons are now on
their second trip to the wild and wooly West,
and if they don't pan out better than they did on
the last trip, it is almost certain that New York
will take the lead, as they play a fine game
away from home. The race between New York
and Boston tt ill be a stubborn one to the very
finish, but a little ill lnck will throw either
club so far behind that it will be almost im
possible for tbem to spurt and catch up at tbe
finish. Tbe Bostons are tbe boss home players,
having won 84 out of 41 games on their home
grounds: but away from home, and especially
in the West they are far from being the form
idable opponents that clubs run un against on
the Boston grounds. Philadelphia plajs about
tbe most even gamo at home and abroad.
Young Daley made his third appearance in
the box at IndlanapoJIs last Monday. He
proved an enigma to tbe Hoosiers, who only
found his delivery forsix hits, while eight men
shattered the air In trying to reach his decep
tive curves. This makes 27 men that Daley
has struck out in three games, a record that
any pitcher in the country might feel proud of.
When the youthful "Jersey pBenom." gets bet

Younc Madden pitched the second game
against Indianapolis on Tuesday, and the Hoo
siers Jumped upon the "Kid's" delivery from
tbe start. Hart should have put in Clarkson
Instead of Madden; then he could
put in Daley again on the last
day. This was tbe original pro
gramme and wby it was changed is only known
to Manager Hart himself. The Hoosier ag
gregation have alwayr hit young Madden very
hard; for that reason the most effective men
should go In against Indianapolis as they play
better against Boston than any other team in
the League. No matter howpoor the Hoosiers
play against other teams; when they tackle
Boston they play as if their very lives depended
upon the contests. Radbourn is a Charley
Ross mystery and we seldom bear of him of
late. But he did astonish fair Bostonese lately,

"Rad" is the best rainy weather pitcher in the
land, but he always finds it necessary to hoist
in a couple of hoopers of "old razmataz"
just previous to the contest. This is done
to keep his Spanish blood warm; it is
also a preventative against "Charley Horse"
and rheumatism. Brouthers is still hittlne tbe
ball on the trade mark and has not dropped be
low .400 this season Tom Brown is a double
champion; he is the boss run getter and cham
pion wind hitter of the arena. Haddock,
Washington's youngi nltcher.-struck Tom out
three times in succession in a recent game at
Washington. We don't hear so much blowing
from Cleveland lately.so it is possible that Torn
Lnftas' head is not so large as it used to be.
When a man is on top he is a dandy aud a great
manager: when he descends into the broth he
becomes' amark for the critics, who will do
their utmost to shove him into tbe nine hole.,
Loftus has my sympathy; he is a first-class
manager, but be will never cut a figure again
in the League race with his present timber.
Gilliland. the McKeesport phenom., pitched
his first game for Lowell last Monday. He was
wild at first, but after settling down he pitched
a fine game, holding the Hartf ords down to
five hits while ten men struck out. The At
lantic Association is in a precarions condition
and may go under inside of two weeks.
John Morrill's hand is Improving, and when
it is thoroughly healed, he will talk business
with some of the clubs who have ottered him
engagements. "1 will either captain a team or
manage one without playing." is Morrill'slatest
ultimatum, "I can't domyself justice andactln
a double capacity." We are all sorry for
Horace Phillips; also sorry to hear that Gal
vin, Rowe and White are playing for a release!

Patrons of ibo Giant Enthusiastic

rSFXCIAL COBBESFONDENCE OI THE DISPATCH.;
New Yobk, August la Baseball is booming
in this town just now, and the few cranks who
lost their nerve when the champions had their
recent run of bad lnck are the ones who are
the loudest in their praise over the good work
of the team now. When the team left New
York with the Bostons about four games ahead
there were but few but who thought that they
would come back with the lead, but no one
had any idea that the Bostons were going to
get on the slide as quickly as they did. The
weak, yes, wretched showing of the bean
eaters in Indianapolis has served to send the
New York's stock up. and the few in this city
who have stuck to Jim Hart's men have now
given up any hope of their doing better than
second, and at the present rate, many put them
as low down at the finish as third.
Tbe Bostons have been classed as quitters of
the first water by the cranks in this city, but
no matter what they may be called, their down
tall is to the credit of the Giants, and from the
present outlook the New Yorks have a big
sized hold on tbe flag, and preparations are
being made to give them a big send off this
Ibe news of Manager Phillips' insanity was
received in this city with much regret. "Hust
ling Horace" was a prime favorite among the
baseball men. and no baseball manager ever
met with a better receptljn, and bis coming
was always looked forward to with pleasure.
New YorKers wished the Pittsburg team well
mainly for the sake of Manager Phillips.
The closeness of the Association race may
interest the people of Pittsburg, and a few
facts about the Brooklyn club may not come
amiss. It has been asked time and again this
season why tbe Brooklyn club has not made a
better showing. Tbe plain fact is It has no
head. Manager McQomcle is a good fellow as
men go, but be has not the will power to han
dle a ball team, and when he gives an order the
players consider it before tbey take action. As
for President Byrne, he is a good executive
officer, but don't know, and. with his present
amount of work, don't want to know anything
about managing the team. It is tbe general
feeling among the baseball people, both in
this city aud in Brooklyn, that St. Louis will
again carry off the honors, and that the best
Brooklyn can do is to get second place.

North and South. At the meeting there
were present a nnmber of Senators and mem
bers of Congress. The association has re
ceived a charter from the State of Georgia,
which enables them to secure the
land embraced in the field by con
demnation. Efforts are now being made to
secure a large attendance of veterans of the
Southern army, and special rates have been
secured over all Southern railroads of one
fare for the.round trip. As the attendance
will be very large, it is suggested to those
who expect to be present that they had best
at once communicate with "W. J. Colburn,
Chairman, at Chattanooga, who will take
pleasure in reserving accommodations for
them during their stay in Chattanooga.
This will be the first organization ever
attempted of veterans of both armies, and
it is thought it will do more than any other

great enthusiasm in the movement through

GAS'S DEBDT IN CHILI.
Profession of Friendship Graciously Ex
pressed to Chill's President.
Valpaeaiso, August 11. Following is
the text of Mr. Bgan's speech to tbe Presi
dent of Chili:
Mb. President In presenting my creden
tials as Idnvoy Extraordinary and Minister
Plenipotentiary of tbe United States It is my
duty to address to Your Excellency a few
words expressive of the kindly feeling which the
people of my country entertain for the patriotic,
the gallant, the progressive aud the generous
hearted people of Chili, over whose destinies
as Chief Magistrate yon have been called upon
I trust you will accept my assurance that I
speak in no mere terms of conventionality
when I say that that feeling is one of the very
highest esteem and most sincere friendship,
and that it is tbe earnest desire of my Govern
ment that the cordial relations now prevailing
between the two countries may never be de
stroyed by the shadow of even a passing cloud
Tbe Commercial Congress to assemble in
Washington in October next, at wbich I am
glad to know Chili has already decided to be
represented, must be productive of great good.
It will give to tho peoples of North and South
America an opportunity of becoming better ac
quainted with each other's opinions, aspira
tions, productions and requirements, and by
creating and fostering closer commercial rela
tions must tend totbeir mutual advancement
and serve the best interests of both.
Animated as both our peoples are by the'
same indomitable spirit of progress and tho
same Intense love of country, there is one senti
ment which .will, I feel assured, find a re
sponsive echo in the heart of every patriotic
citizen of Chill as well as of the United States
the sentiment, "America for Americans,-"
not South America for North Americans,
but the wealth, resources, prosperity, progress
and honor of each one of our American nation
alitles for Its own people, all co-operating har
moniously for tbe advancement of the great
ness and glory of our American hemisphere.
In this spirit the United States extends her
most cordial greeting to her sister republic of
A VERY PAIR HOP CKOP.
The New York Growers Are Satisfied With
Eome, N. y., August 10. Two weeks
ago there was a question as to the outlook
for hops in Central New York, but the week
of good weather has occasioned a great
improvement in many yards, and,
although the crop is somewhat
short, the quality- is good. The effect of
the blight has passed away. Most of the
yards in Madison and the adjoining coun
ties will yield from two-thirds to three
fourths of the usual crop, whereas some will
only yield one-half. In every case the
Humphrey variety makes the best showing,
and will yield over 1,000 pounds to the
acre The quality is excellent The.Cana
das will yield less than last year.
The growers and all say that the-crop will
be exceedingly good if nothing occurs be
tween now and picking time. Of course
many things may happen before then. The
greatest danger now to be apprehended is
from rust. Although the crop will be con
siderably short, there are few who expect
that high prices will be obtained on this ac
count, unless something should happen to
affect foreign and Pacific slope production.
There are nojeontracts reported, but it is ex
pected that the prices offered this fall will
range from IB to 20 cents.

A draughtsman in tbe Supervising Archi

he was a staunch Republican and always

hard for Blaine against Cleveland, though
the latter was a personal friend.
ISPECIAL TELT-PRJLMS TO TBI DISPATCH.!
"Washikotok, August 11. One of the
most interesting stories connected "with re
cent 'dismissals irom the departments is that J
of Mr. Charles Kinkel, whose name has be
come somewhat familiar over the whole
country through his plans for the erection
of a tower lor the exhibition of lfe92, which
shall be 1,500 feet in height.
Mr. Kinkel was appointed a draughts
man and architect of the Supervising Archi
tect's Office very soon after the inaugura
tion of Cleveland, and at the special request
of the President himself. He is a hand
some German, about 60 years of age, of fine
education, and one of the most agreeable
and genial companions imaginable. A
revolutionist of the days ot 1848, he was
imprisoned in Germany for 18 months, but
he says little of that, though he has not
swerved from his intense Republicanism.
A BOON. COMPANION.
In the days when Cleveland was Sheriff
of Erie county Kinkel was a resident of
Buffalo and a warm, personal friend of
Solomon Scheu, the Mayor of that time.
Cleveland and Kinkel were wont to meet
almost nightly at Scheu's residence, play
German, games with cards, drink German
beer and eat German sausage and sauer
kraut. Kinkel was, however, too extreme in his Re-
Sublicanism to support Cleveland either for
layor, for Governor, or for President.
Previons to 1884 he had removed to New
York City, and in that year he was an en
thusiastic supporter of Blaine. He was
largely instrumental In carrying the elec
tion of Levi P. Morton for Congress, and
nas many letters from both Morton and
Blaine, thanking him for his valiant services
among the Germans.
After the election of Cleveland, and
through the solicitation of their mutual
friend Schiu, Cleveland offered Kinkel not
only a place in the office of the supervising
architect, bnt actually the office of super
vising architect. Kinkel consulted with
his Republican friends in regard to the mat
ter, and was advised to accept a position, as
the office was one which should be free from
politics. He refused to take the chief office,
but called on Cleveland one morning and
informed him he would accept a position as
draughtsman, and at 3 o'clock that aiter
noon he was appointed. He oftec called at
the White House, and was always a wel
When the campaign of 1888 was at its
height Kinkel was caught in the toils of tbe
civil service law. He, being a Republican,
was selected by cunning Democratic chiefs
of the office to handle funds collected in the
office to further the election of Cleveland.
Simple-minded as he was, and
UNACCUSTOMED TO TEICKEEY,
while he wonld not solicitor collect even for
his bid friend Cleveland, he thought it was
not criminal; morally or legally, to forward
to the Democratic Committee envelopes con
taining money which were mysteriously left
on his desk, lrom anonymous contributors.
He admitted doing this to the Senate Com
mittee which investigated the office oi the
Supervising Architect last winter, and this,
with) his complimentary appointment by
Cleveland,marked him lor dismissal, though
he did not himself contribute a cent,and did
not vote for the Democratic candidates.
Kinkel is still as stanch a Republican as
ever! and a word from Vice President Mor
ton, Vhom he has so woll served politically,
would probably accomplish his reinstate
ment; but Kinkel is too proud to ask any
cominendation where he feels that he has
bee wronged for doing what was in no wav
dishonorable. He is content to pursue hfs
vocation as a draughtsman for architects of
this city, and hopes to be the architect of
thel tower or leya, whtcn will overtop the
Eifitl tower by 500 feet
WHY WEBSTER GOT LEFT.
Harrison's Grnndfaiher's Namenake la Not
'SPECIAL TT.I.EGBAM TO THE DI8FATCH.1
Washington, August 11. There is a
goo deal of gossip among leading members
of rgamzations of workingmen here, on
ace: ant of the refusal of the President to
apjiint "William Henry Harrison "Webster
Coifeul to Toronto, Canada, though he was
ure$d by the most influential politicians of
Nef York, headed by Chauncey M. Depew.
It appears that Webster is a working man
and nothing more. He is an engineer of the
New York Central, a member of the Broth
erhood of Locomotive Engineers, and so
prominent for his faithfulness, probity and
ability as to commend him to the highest
officials of the road, to the people of
his State generally, and especially to the
masses in his own position in life. That he
should be "turned down," after having
been almost promised the office, for a
wealthy man like Charles G.Pope, of St.
Louis, whose almost sole recommendation
was his recital of "Sheridan's Ride" at a
critical moment at the Chicago Convention,
is thought to be very strange.
- While Harrison was here, and could be
seen by "Webster's friends, lie virtually
promised the appointment of Webster.
Away from these influences, he forgot the
commendations of Depew and his associ
ates, ignored the backing of the Brother
hood of Locomotive Engineers, and ap
pointed the fine-looking, wealthy, solt
hauded St. Louis recitationist.

BOLTS AND BAES
Had No Terrors Tor a Mysterious Burglar
In Kansas Leaving- Jail Whenever
Be Felt Like It Fixing the
Lock of a Bank Vault.
Kansas City, August 11. Clay Center,
Kan., has just wakened up to the fact that
she has had within her borders a sensation
which is ont of the usual run of wild West
ern incidents. A burglar named Carton was
committed to the jail last October to await
trial. He was turned over to Sheriff James
Sterling. The county jail at Clay Center
is a two-story stone building, with all the
latest improvements in the way of locks and
steel grating, and is considered one of the
strongest prisons in the State.
About noon of the day of commitment
Carton sent for Attorney F. P. Harkness,
asking him to come to jail and consider a
line of de Tense. On Harkness arriving at
the cell Carton had not a word to say about
his case, but talked on scientific and liter
ary subjects. He was a well-read man, aud
surprised Harkness by his erudition. After
consuming over an hour in this talk Hark
ness became impatient, and asked Carton to
speak of his case.
"You play billiards, don't you?" asked
"Yes. "Why?" was the surprised answer.
"Well, I will meet you at that billiard
hall across the way at 8 o'clock this evening,
and while we are enjoying a game of
billiards we can talk about my case."
"But tb.3 Sheriff won't let you out to play
billiards. 'You must remember that you are
"That is all right You meet me there at
8 o'clock this evening," answered Carton.
He spoke as coolly and earnestly as if a
trip through stone walls and steel bars was
of every daoccurrence to him, and Hark
ness hardly knew what to make of his
strange client. He thought the man was
making game of him, but as night came on
he could not resist the temptation, and be
fore 8 o'clock he was at the billiard ball
watching the door. Just as the clock struck
8 in walked Carton. "While the game was
in progress Sheriff Sterling entered the
place. He did not recognize Carton, but
Harkness, who was completely non-plnssed
over the matter, called to Sterling and said:
Xiook nere, bterling, is it your usual
custom to allow your prisoners to be out
playing billiards at this hour?"
"What do you mean?" said Sterling.
"Why, I mean that Carton here was com
mitted to jail this morning to await the ac
tion of the grand jury, and he is out playing
billiards in the evening."
Sterling turned pale and almost fell from
the shock and the fear that there had been
a jail break.
"Don't get excited, old fellow," said Car
ton, "I only wanted a little fresh air, but if
you object I will go back now."
After this escapade the prisoner left his
cell and the jail whenever he pleased, and
returned when he got ready, the Sheriff be
ing nearly distracted. The lock on one of the
city banks became unmanageable.andexperts
could not open it. The prisoner heard of it,
volunteered his assistance and pierced the
vault. The peculiarities of the man be
came so common to the Sheriff that he was
never surprised to find his man wan
dering around the town in the morn
ing. But last Thursday Carton's cell was
empty and the prisoner" was not sitting on
the steps. On the chair in the cell was a
note to Sterling bidding him goobby and
thanking him for all Bis kindness, saying
that pressing business necessitated his sud
This was startling, but when Mr. John
A. Moss, cashier of the Farmers and Mer
chants' Bank, opened his desk that morn-
ing ne louna a note trom Carton stating
that he had taken $200 from the safe in the
vault to pay his traveling expenses, and
stating that, as he had never been paid for
filing" the bank lock, he would take his
pay and leave his receipt'for it. Mr. Moss
rushed to the vault and found lving on a
pile of money a receipt for J200 signed
DICKENS AS AN EDITOR.
The Energy Which the Great Novelist Dis
played in His Chosen Field.
Dickens is most thought of as a novelist,
but bis career as editor, if less dwelt upon,
was hardly less distinguished in his service,
first to Household Words and then to All
the year Round. Except during his brief
connection with the Daily News, he was
never the editor of a daily journal; but in
the record, which his son furnishes in the
August number of. the English Illustrated
Magazine, of his method of editing a weekly
journal and of dealing with his contributors,
it is found that Dickens set up the highest
standard possible and brought all of his in
domitable energy and capacity for taking
pains into the service of his weekly maga
zine. He was the model editor in his chosen
field, exacting but considerate, and jf his
correspondence with all contributors was as
kindly as it was with the American lady
whose contribntions he took in hand and
commented on, his relations to his co-labor-
'ers must have been choice illustrations of
his kindness of heart and of the conscien
tious discharge ot his relations to others.
RARE POSTAGE STAMPS.
Discovery of Hare and Valuable Specimens
1 Ont West.
Galena, III., August 11. A discovery
was made here to-day that will be of great
interest.; It" consisted of three Government
postage stamps, issued according to law by
the postmaster at St. Louis, for the
State of Missouri, in 1845, the de
nominations being two of the 10-cent
and one of the 20-cent series. These
stamps were issued in 5, 10 and 20 cent de
nominations, and are among the rarest and
most valuable to stamp collectors of all
those issued by authority of tbe Government
for use as postage.
J. H. Wymer was postmaster of St,
Louis in 1845, and cave the order for the
plates to J. M. Kershaw, a local en
graver. The 0 and 10 cent stamps
are found on two varieties of pa
per. The 20 cent were printed from
an altered plate of the 5-cent, and are, per
haps, the rarest stamps known. The stamps
bear the arms of Missouri, with "St. Louis"
above and "Post Office" below, are rectang
ular in shape, and printed in black on blue

The Horn Fly, Which. Is Doing Great
Damage to Live Stock.
Rkadino, August 11. The ravages of a
ilew species of cattle fly are attracting a
good deal of attention in this country and
are doing considerable damage to
live stock. They settle in great num
bers around tbe. base of the horns
and at other places where the animal cannot
dislodge them, and bore into the flesh and
bone. The boring into the horns causes
such suffering that the animals rapidly lose
flesh and if they are not attended to death
Iu the case of cows the yield of milk is re
duced from one-half to two-thirds. The
entomologist ot the agricultural department
at Washington, L. O. Howard, recommends
tbe application of fish oil or pine tar with a
little sulphur mixed with it, or tobacco dust
where the skin is not broken, and tallow
mixed with a small amount of carbolic acid.

Philadelphia, August 11. Baron De
Pardonnet, who, claims to have been swin
dled out of 53,300 in Phil Daly's establish
ment, in Long Branch, is a resident of this
city, and his escapade' is a great surprise to
his numerous friends, to whom he is known
as Baron De Pardonnet and Duke De Guise.
De Pardonnet is well known to most of the
prominent Frenchmen in this city, and all
of them believe him to be wealthy and court
Dr. Eugene P. Bernardy, of 221 South
Seventeenth street, who is a firm believer in
the Baron, said this afternoon, when asked
to state what he knew about De Pardonnet:
"Baron De Pardonnet has been in this
country for 20 years. He was compelled to
leave France at the downfall of Napoleon
III., who Conferred upon him the title of
Duke De Guise. He is very wealthy and
is a perfect gentleman. Any one can tell by
his appearance that he is a member of the
aristocracy. I fervently believe in the
Baron's story that he was swindled. If it
was not so he would not make such a state
ment. He is always, very particular about
what he says, and any of his friends in this
city will vouch for his honor. The Baron
always had plenty" of money, and always
treated bis friends in'a royal style. He has
an office at No. 524 "Walnut street, and is
the counsel of the French and Belgian Le
gations. He is also secretary of a large
chemical factory in the city."
THE BABON TOLD HIM SO.
The Doctor did not remember what chem
ical works the Baron was secretary ot.
"If you could only meet the Baron," tbe
Doctor continued, "you could see what a
perfect gentleman he is, and all doubts as
to his character would at once fade away.
The Baron is one of those very agreeable
companions with whom one very seldom
meets. He is a very confiding fellow, as
most Frenchmen are, and will tell yon his
whole history on very short acquaintance.
You see, I have known the Baron for four
months and I know all about him. I had
only known him a few weeks before he con
fided to me the history of his life and all his
"Then what you know about the Baron
he told you himself."
"YeSr that is all any of his friends know
about him. But I can assure you that the
Baron tells the truth." ,
Dr. Charles E. Sagours, of 1632 Chestnut
street, who is the Belgian Consul and is a
friend of De Pardonnet, said: "There is
no doubt as to the truth of the Baron's
statement. If he says he has been swindled
you may depend upon it tha't he has. I
know him to be a straightforward gentle
man, and I do not believe that any of the
statements made abont him are trne. He

THE LANliLADYja STOKY.
The Duke De Guise, up to the time of his
departure for Long Branch, about one
month ago, boarded in the house kept by
Mrs. Wilson. The house itself is apparent
ly not one that a wealthy Baron or Duke
would select. The landladv and the board
ers ridicule the idea of his losing $3,300.
In speaking oi the Baron yesterday after
noon Mrs. "Wilson, his landlady, said:
"Well, that is certainly the best joke I
have heard for a long time. If amuses me
greatly to hear that the dear Baron has lost
$3,300. I should certainly like to know
where he succeeded in getting it

during that time it was impossible for me
to get any money ont of him, with the ex
ception of a few dollars, now and then.
"When he first came, here he was very aristo
cratic, aud ordered everyone to address him
as Baron or Duke. For some time he was
regarded by the boarders, as well as myself,
as one with whom it was an honor to be
acquainted. We showed him every atten
tion and all the servants were, at his com
mand. He made no attempt to pay his
board, and all ot us finally came to the con
THE BABON "WAS N. O.
"I tried every means toget him out of the
house, but it was no use. "When he wouldn't
go by request I moved the things out ot his
room and gave him one of the worst in the
house. That proved of no use, and I put
him up in the fourth floor back with the
servants, but the Baroa still remained with
me. I gave it up as a bad job, and came to
the conclusion that I would have to take
him Into the family. About one month ago
he informed me that ne was going to Long
Branch, but would be back in a short time.
He wanted to take fiis trunkt but I
wouldn't let it go till I was paid my money.
He went off leaving all his things in the
room, only carrying with him a small
"A few days ago a young man called and
represented himself as the Baron's son, "and
wanted to take away the trunk. I told him
that when his father paid up he could take
away the things. The larger portion of his
possessions consists of wine, tbe quality of
which the servant girl can vouch for. I do
not believe the Baron ever lost that amount
of money, and I don't think he has had so
much in bis possession for a long time, if
ever he had it. It was certainly very funny,
if he could afford to lose $4,000. he couldn't
afford to pay bis board. The titles of Baroa
and Duke, I think, are an illusion and im
aginary ou the part of Mr. Depardonnet,"
CONTRACTOR M'KNIGHrS BILL.
Piltsbnrg; Committeemen on a Johnstown
It is stated that Contractor McKnight,
who stepped into the contract of removing
Johnstown debris after Booth & Flinn
withdrew,) finds his itemized b'ill for be
tween $48,000 and $49,000 cut down to $20,
000 by the State authorities. When the bill
was presented $10,000 was'paid, and Colonel
S. W. Hill, Quartermaster General acting
for 'the State, has offered $10,000 more as a
full settlement, which amount Mr. Mc
Knight refuses to accept. There seems to
be a dispute in regard to time-keeping, and
the State authorities claim to have ex
ercised an amount of supervision ot the

appeal to Governor Beaver is talked of by
Mr. McKnight's friends and himself.

much relief, I at last tried Ayer's Pills.

tp testify that I have derived great ben

now I am in excellent health." S. I.
