Tlie Champion Declines to
Bow Gaudaur in America.
ST. JOHFS MANLY OFFER
In Reply to a Cablegram Received
TOURNAMENT'S GREAT SURPRISE.
He Starts at SO to 1 and Wins the Great
GOSSIP ABOUT TO-DAFS BOAT KACB
An important cablegram from London
was received by Mi. St. John last evening,
stating that Searle will row Gaudaur in
England or Australia. St John makes a
plucky reply. Tournament caused a big
surprise by winning the great Eastern
Handicap. Be started 80 to 1.
According to a cablegram from London
received by James A. St. John last evening,
Henry Earnest Searle. the champion scal
ier of the world, has receded from his origi
nal position regarding rowing Jacob Gau
daur; in other words, the Australian has
weakened. Some time ago he told Hanlan
that if he defeated O'Connor he would row
any American on his own water; and still
more recently he has declared that he was
ready to row cither Tccmer or Gaudanr in
America for a substantial stake. "When
Mr. St. John heard of this he stated
through this "paper that he was ready
at any time to match Gaudaur against
Keaileif tho race took place in America and
on a lake. This declaration reached London
yesteraay, and Searle at once put up a deposit
with the London Sportsman, and the manager
of that paper cabled t. John last evening to
the effect that Searle would row Gaudanr on
the Thames in a month for $2,500 a side and
allow expenses, otherwise he would row him on
WHAT ST. JOnX SATS.
When Mr. St. John read the cablegram he
remarked with a smile- -Well, I'm sorry
that Henry has weakened. Gandaur will cer
tainly not row him either on the Thames
or Tarametta for any money of
mine. I have a strong love for rowing
and I am willing to spend money over
my hobby, hut I like to see a fair deal. I don't
believe in either of the courses named, because
I don't think 3 fair test of rowing ability can
be obtained on tbem. Searle positively said
he would row Gaudaur here, ana I am still
willing to put up $2,000 or $3,000 for him to row
Searle in America, whether he wins or loses to
morrow. I am prepared to go further, and say
that I am disposed to match Gaudaur to row
Searle on any Enclish or Irish lake. The lakes
of Killarney will suit me, or Windermere either.
If Searle wants a race that is a fair race with
Gaudanr he will row on still water. If he de
cides to do this, he will find better still water
courses in America than anywhere else."
Mr. St John's concession of being willing to
row on an Irish or English lake is certainly one
worthy the plucky and honest patron of scull
ing that he is. Nothing coald be more com
rocndable and nothing more sportsmanlike. If
bearle is anything like tho wonder he is sup
posed to be. he won't hesitate a moment in
compiling with St John's terms; that is, it he,
Searle, wants a fair race.
A SrLENDID COTJESE.
Windermere Lake, in the west part of En
gland, is a splendid sheet of water, and on it
there is as fine a four-mile course as anybody
would wish to row on. The veteran Jimmy
Taylor has had many a "ius-le" on the lake,
and last evening he biid: ' It isas fine a course
as I ever rowed on. I'm certain that Gaudaur
would do some great sculling on it"
However, now that a correspondence has
commenced it is likely that a match will be
made. Many people are of the opinion that
Searle will certainly come to this country if he
cannot get a race any other way.
Mr. St John visited McKcesport yesterday
and was rowed over the course by Dan Gonld.
The former was delighted with the course and
spent considerable time in pulling "snags"
from the river. Last evening he said: "I think
Gaudaur a sure winner. His new boat suits
him -nell and he showed remarkable speed yes
terday. I saw Teemer out also. John was
rowing with extraordinary power, but he didn't
seem to get ninth tpeed on his boat. All I
have to sav publicly is. The race is on its merits
and I feel confident that Gandaur will win.
That is my pointer, ana the public can make of
it what they choose."
NOW FOR THE RACE.
Evcrjlhlng Uendr Tor the Bis Contest
Gandaur FutoHio In Flttsbure.
If the weather is fine to-day it is expected
that a tremendous crowd will be at McKcesport
to see the big race between Gaudaur and
Teemer. Everything is now ready for the race
except the appointing of two distance judges.
The sporting editor of this paper will be referee
and he has appointed Mr. James A St John
timekeeper. The latter gentleman cannot be
surpassed as a trustworthy timekeeper. Tho
race will start about 5 o'clock at Tort Perry.
Owing to the expected large nnmbers
of steamers and other craft it is
likely that the rowers will consent to
start without the stake boats. It is feared the
big steamers would swamp the boats. Gau
daur will tike his boat to Port Perry about 2
o'clock, and he will rest at that place until
starting time. Teemer may do the same. It is
earnestly desired that nobody will in anyway
whatever interfere with the row ers during the
race, and it is particularly expected that all
the small craft will be kept well out of the way
of the contestants.
The bettinc, so far, has not been heavy, but
a large amount of money will likely be invested
trMlay. In Pittsburg Gandaur is favorite.
Trains will leave the Baltimore and Ohio depot
at various times during the day for the course.
Excursion rates only will be charged.
Teenier m an interview yesterday said:
"Pome ontside parties are trying to make money
out of our race. There is a certain boat that
will follow the race and the parties controlling
her ref ase to pay one cent toward the expenses
of the contest This is not right and 1 hope
the public will think as I think.
Billy Gorman, a well-known admirer of
aquatics, said last e cmng that he was certain
tho race will be on its ment, and that Mr. St.
John would certainly not be connected with
aii)thing dishonest. He thinks the best man
will win and rather favors Teemer.
AN AUTHORITY'S OPINION.
An Eastern Paper's View or To-Day' .Boat
Referring to to-day's boat race, the New
York Clipper says:
'Now that the race for the championship of
the world has been decided, lovers of rowing
will give their whole attention to the forth
coming race between John Teemer, of McKees
port Pa, and Jake Gaudaur, of St Loui, Mo.,
both of whom have held the title of champion
of America. The match is for $1,000 a side, and
the final deposit SSOOfrom each side, was posted
on September 0. at the office of TltE Pitts
burg Dispatch, which is final stakeholder.
At the same time the $300 allowed Gaudaur for
expenses was handed to the latter The dis
tance to be rowed Is fonr miles, straightaway,
from Port Perry to a point almost opposite to
JIcKeesport, on the Monofigahela. iioth men
have been in careful training on the course
during the week, and both express confidence
in their ability to carry off the prize. Gaudaur
is a slight favorite In the betting, notwith
standing the fact that the race is to be row d
on waters most familiar to his opponent Ed
Hanlan is expected to be present at the race,
and both Gaudaur and Teemer have expressed
their willingness to give him a race, in case he
(honld wish another trial."

SOME GREAT SHOOTING.
Budd, tbo Champion Llvo Bird Shot, Doe
Leadytxle, Col., September 12. Sportsmen
are talking about a wonderful feat of trap
shooting accomplished in the big tournament
by Charles W. Budd, of Des Moines, really the
champion live bird shot of America. Budd shot
in nearly all matches at inanimate targets in
the four days, the aggregate reaching 500 birds
and ho missed but one bird.
Budd is a man with nerves of iron and shoots
in a match as cool as in practice. He is the
holder of many trophies.
Budd was an Iowa farmer before he took to
professional shooting. In his first match he
won a pair of wooden shoes for making the
poorest score. Ho is such a snap shot that un
til a year ago lie seldom used this second barrel
at live birds. In bis match with Graham he
failed to shoot a grounded bird and itgot away.
The failure to fire the second shot cost him

Toronto, September 11. Ned Hanlan
declares that O'Connor's defeat was no

nor should have weakened so early

Searle for a mile or a mile and a half. Seailo
is tbo best sculler I ever saw. You could not
possibly have a man better made for sculling.
1 have watched him at his trials in Australia
and know what he can do. People ask me
what Searle has done. In reply I say that on
pnblic form Kemp beat Beach on the Para
matta river by six seconds in a mile, and Searle
beat Kemp on the same course by ten seconds
for the same distance. As for Searle's staying
powers why, the man never seenis to tire."

The picnic of the Connty Democracy at

success. Over 3,000 people assembled in
the woods along the "West Penn
road and partook of the hospitable cheer
offered them by the generous Democrats.
The weather smiled on the exercises of the
day with her most pleasant aspect and noth

From an early hour Christy's Orchestra
had begun to fnrnish some excellent music,
and thereafter the patter of young and lively
feet was almost constant. Numerous games
were indulged in, but the mule race eclipsed
all the others. Teemer, Gaudaur and Searle,
the three animals had been named, and
the spectators quickly took sides with their
respective candidates. True, they did not
make as good time as their namesakes, the
oarsmen, but they created more merriment.
Teemer won the race, with Gaudaur a good
second and Searle a very bad third.
Considerable eclat was added to the oc
casion by the presence of numerous promi
nent politicians. In fact, the picnic seemed
to be a veritable love feast. The leaders of
the connty Democracy were there, of course,
and so was D. O. Barr, Attorney Dick

.EPECIAI. TELEGRAM TO TOE DISFATCIM
Washington, September 12. The Pitts
burg team arrived here this morning from
Philadelphia but they were unable to meet
the Senators this afternoon, as a steady rain
has prevailed here all day. When your
correspondent called at the Arlington Hotel
to-night Captain (Manager) Hanlon was
surrounded by his players discussing the
prospects for a double game to-morrow. All
of the players are in good condition and
anxious for a go at Arthur Irwin's lads.
Staley was to have pitched to-day, so he
will go in to-morrow, weather permitting.
Morris will not be needed in the Senatorial
series so ho with Maul started back to Pitts
burg this morning. Captain Hanlon has in
structed Maul to practice pitching as ho may
be needed in tbe box before the season closes.
Staley and Galvinw ill do the pitching here,
and if a double game is played Sowders will
officiate in the third game. The latter has not

CARROLL'S BIO HITTING.
Carroll will do most of the catching here as
his 'batting is needed in every game, besides
Miller is playing a strong right field and also
hitting the ball well. The Deacon and Jack
Rowe are playing in good form and the former
is hitting the ball as well as he ever did.
Captain Hanlon says his men realize that
they have got to play good ball to down the
Senators two out of three games, but they are
full of ginger and confident of winning a ma
jority of the games during the balance of the
season. In explanation of his failure to play
oil a postponed game in Boston Captain Han
lon says he at first declined to play because his
men were in poor shape, but he was afterward
willing to accept a proposition providing extra
financial inducements were offered. He in
formed them that they were looking for tbe
championship, while the Pittsburgs looked at
the matter from a purely business standpoint
Manager Hart declined to offer anything be
yond the usual rates so the game was not played.
Captain Hanlon is uot stuck on the donble
game business, especially while traveling.
A NEW PITCHER COMING.
He says tbe home club has a decided ad
vantage over the visitors, as tbe latter are more
or less broken up by constant change of water
and surroundings. He attributes the ill luck
of his team to overwork on the home grounds
before starting East While in Philadelphia
he met a promising young pitcher who was to
have been given a trial with a view to joining
the team, but bad weather interfered, so he did
not get an opportunity to see what class of
work he is capable of doing. Tho youngster
may meet the club at Pittsburg next week, as
Jlr. Nimick thinks well of him.
Daring the Dresent wet spell Arthur Irwin is
up in New England looking for new Senatorial
material. He is after a catcher, as it has been
determined to keep Connie Mack on first base.
The Senators are hitting the ball hard just
now, and they are prepared to givo tho Pitts
burgers a warm reception.

A CALL TO CHRISTIANS
To Protest Asnlnst the Unveiling of the
Bruno Stnlno nt Rome Cardinal
Gibbons Issues a Pastoral
Letter Upon tbe Subject.
Baltimore, September 12. Cardinal
Gibbons has issued a pastors! letter calling
attention to the allocution of Pope Leo on
the unveiling recently of a monument in
Borne to the memory of Bruno. The letter
will be read in the Catholic churches next
Sunday. The Cardinal says:
A mingled feeling of righteous wrath and
deep sympathy was bred in every Catholic
heart when the new3 came that npon a public
square in Rome, impious men dared to unveil
the statue of an apostate Monk. Dragging the
memory of a wild theonzer, a shameless writer
and denier of the divinity of Christ, from tbe
obscurity of a grave that ha4 for three centu
ries closed upon its disgrace, these men,
backed by mere brute force, have set upon a
pedestal in the Holy City the statue of the In
Such a proceeding is a palpable and flagrant
outrage, not alone upon the Catholic, but upon
the whole Christian orld. Its animus is clear
in tbe unchristian and defiant language em
ployed in the unveiling of tbo statue of a man
whose whole life breathed cowardice, pride and
defiance of lawfully constituted authority.
Theirs Is not the action of decent honorable,
but misguided men, calmly, and with dne re
gard to the feelings of others, promulgating a
belief, or introducing a new cult Their at
tempt Is not so much to honor Bruno, as to in
sult'and vilify the Vicar of Jesus Christ and
his devoted children throughout Christendom.
Indeed, their aim is higher still; they defy
and insult not aioneuis vicar, out our divine
Lord himself. From every land they have
chosen as tbe committee to further the move
ment tbe champions of atheism, the would-be
destroyers of the very foundations of Christ
ianity. It is proper that the Christian world,
and especially this portion, where the term
"religious freedom" is understood in a sober,
Christian sense, Bbould brand with their indig
nant scorn action such as this. We are not
yet ready for processions in which tbe red and
black flags of revolutionists and Anarchists
are defiantly flaunted.

The peremptory challenges of the defense

Chicago, September 12. Big Dan
Coughlin's peremptory challenges are gone.
Martin Burke's quota was exhausted at 3
o'clock this afternoon. Inroads are now
being made in the lists credited to O'Sulli
van, Beggs and Kunze. The end of the re
markable search for jurors, while still a
lobg way off, is rapidly coming into view.
The defense used up eight peremptories
during the day.
This is tho most progress made in a single
day since the trial began. The prisoners
still have 64 more peremptories. With the
present revised line of questioning and the
firm stand taken by Judge McConhell as to
the cjaalification of a juror who had an
opinion as to the guilt or innocence of the
accused, but who swears that he can lay this
opinion aside and give the men a fair trial,
a jury onght to be secured before the end of
BUBKE'S challenges gone.
During the afternoon venireman Bentley
was challenged by tbe defense for cause;
but the Court, alter examining the tales
man, overruled the challenge.
Mr. Forrest We take an exception and

The Court I understand Burke's chal

Mr. Forrest I have no doubt about it,

Mr. Forrest That is what I wanted.
Tbe point being made the venireman was
challenged peremptorilvon behalf of O'Snl-
Thirty-four venire men were examined
to-day. Most of them were business men
who had formed opinions or had conscien
tious scruples against the infliction of the
death penalty. Those who were so preju
diced against the prisoners that they
couldn't lay aside their opinions were hur
riedly hauled out of the box, but an intelli
gent juror who was confident that he could
render an impartial verdict, despite his
present views, was not dismissed until the
defense exercised their right of peremptory
This ruling by jthe Court created consid
erable consternation among Attorney For
rest and his colleagues, but the Court was
firm. An exception was taken to the over
ruling of each of these challenges. Farmer
James Pearson, who does not wear a necktie
of any kind, now looks like a possible juror.
He has been passed repeatedly by both
sides and slept to-night for the third time
nnderlthe espionage of a big bailiff. Three
other jurors were held over night, but there
are no assurances that they will be kept to
morrow. Two of them are real estate deal
ers with strong faces and unbiased minds.
S. Y. Cornish was one of the two talesmen
who created anything like a sensation in
co'urt. In renly to a question Mr. Cornish
declared in a loud voice that he was op
posed to foreigner, coming over- to this
country to wash their dirty linen. Judge
McConnell ordered him out of the box in
THE FIEST OF HIS KIND.
E. D. Wills, a baldheaded Irishman from
County Clare, when asked if he had formed
an opinion as to the guilt or innocence of
the prisoners, replied that he was satisfied
that the State had not got one of the mur
derers. This frank announcement, the first
of its kind since the weary trial began,
amused the spectators. Burke, who was
reading a newspaper at the time, turned his
crimson lace upon the strange juror. Then
he laughed incredulously and watched Mr.
Wills with unfeigned amazement.
The juror made the same response three
times. He was finally exensed for cause,
the Court drawing from him the admission
that he could not be convinced by the evi
dence that the five men on trial had any
thing to do with the murder of Dr. Cronin.
During the examination of veniremen at
the afternoon session Clown Kunze crossed
his legs and rolled an unlighted cigar be
tween his jaws. He is getting tired of tbe
delay. He said to-day that he was willing
to risk his chances with a jury composed of
Chinamen. The thirteenth and fourteenth
venires were issued to-day. The State used
one of its peremptories at the afternoon ses
sion. It still has 81 to its credit.

New York,. September 12. At thEe
publican National Convention, which began
in Chicago on June 10, 1888, Mr- John
Sherman! of Ohio, was a frantic candidate
for the nomination for President, as he had
often been years and years before. Mr.
Channcey M. Depew, of New York, was
also a candidate in a good-natured way. In
the wire-pulling of the affair, though, Mr.
Depew bad a strong held on the string that
finally brought Mr Sherman from the crest
nf the hill, and Mr. Sherman has neither
forgotten the-affair nor forgiven the accom
plished gentleman who did it. When, seven
days ago, Mr. Depew climbed over tbe gang
plank of the Inman steamer City of New
York, at Queenstown, to take a homeward
trip, the first person he encountered on the
deck was Mr. Sherman. Mr. Depew smiled
and bowed, but Mr. Sherman would not
have it, and walked away. Mr. Depew
smiled again, but said nothing. He busied
himself caring for Mrs. Depew and his 10-year-old
son, whom, he calls "Buster,"
though that isn't his name. When the ship
was three or four days at sea an entertain
ment was given aboard in aid of the Sea
men's Orphanage and Bine Anchor Society,
of New York, and heading the "Honorary
Committee," as the programme called them,
was tbe Hon. Channcey M. Depew as Chair
man, while the Hon. John' Sherman was
next on the printed list.
It was after this entertainment that Mr.
Sherman and Mr. Depew were thrown to
gether again, and the 600 cabin passengers
who had previously noticed the disinclina
tion of the two statesmen to fraternize, were
pleased to see. them enter into conversation.
They couldn't well help it without exhibit
ing much rudeness, and it was again Mr.
Depew who made the overture. After some
conventionalities the conversation or the
two gentlemen drifted into English politics,
and as to whether the Princess Louise, re
cently married to the Earl of Fife, should
get an increase and her annnity from her
grandma's Government, bnt American poli
tics were scrupulously eschewed. '
After this talk together Mr. Sherman and
Mr. Depew spoke to each other when they
casually met on deck, but there was not any
rapturous or confidential exchange of views.
When tbe vessel was sighted yesterday Mr.
Depew was met by a host ot friends on a
steamer down the bay, but Mr. Sherman
went to the dock and from there to Wash

National Association of Colored Baptists
began its annnal session in this city to-day.
About 100 delegates are present, represent
ing almost every State in the Union. The
members or the party who were assaulted nt
a small station named Boxley, Ga., while on
their way to attend tbe gathering, appeared
before the meeting in the afternoon and ex
hibited their injuries., Eev. E. K. Lane, of
Savannah, gave a graphic account of the
assault, which stirred the delegates to a
high pitch of excitement, and many ex
pressed themselves as being in favor of ad
vising the Southern brethren to arm them
selves and resist further attacks., Mr.
Spratling, one of the party, appeared before
the meeting with his arm in a sling and
looking very faint and weak. The follow
ing resolutions were nnanimously adopted:
Whereas," The colored Baptists of all this

John Williams, who had been in the
hands of the mob at Boxley, advised that
the colored man must fight when attacked
if they ever expected to be a people.
"Do you know," said he, that one negro
can scare a dozen white people. Carry a
pistol and use it on the slightest pretense."
The entire day was given up to the dis

Hamilton would forfeit his 600 bail and

Mr. Hamilton, looking like a man who has

Tuesday morning. Upon Sheriff Smith's

two remained in close conversation for some
time. While the Sheriff declined to say

movements, enough was learned to say that
he will not forfeit the $600 bail, but will ap
pear at court.
Mrs. Hamilton, who ha3 during her stay
at May's Landing, occupied the third floor
of tbe'SherifFs quarters, soon learned of her
husband's presence in town. At first she
became greatly excited because he failed to

THE TRAMPS 1DESTIPIID. . . &

Caasht at Coshocton.. -' , '
Hampton Houghton, chief of the Penn
sylvania Railroad detectives,' west jester-
day to Coshocton, O., accompanied by Jessa '
Nichols. The latter was one of the freight
brakemen who was assaulted by tramps at
Wall's station last Friday. Three men were
arrested at Coshocton on Monday for the
shooting of Marshal Hagans.pf that town,
and their descriptions tallied with the
tramps who assaulted Cox and Nichols, '
The brakeman identified the men as his as
sailants. Detective Houghton said that the
tramps bad, on Friday morning, robbed the
hardware store of A. C. Ssitlt & Co.. at
Jeannette. It was because they were anxious
to get away from that neighborhood that
they made so desperate a fight on the train.
The revolvers which tbey nsed on Cex sail
Nichols were stolen from Smith's store. .
Mr. Houghton believes that the prisoners jj
belong to a gang of robbers and highway
men who have for two years been commit-. '
ting depredations in Westmoreland county,
and he thinks they are responsible for tne
murder of a merchant named St. Clair, at s ;
Wilcinsburg, last spring.
