I A CHANGE FOR PITISBUEG.
Conjectures That the Home Team
Will Join the Eastern Lot
A TALK WITH PRESIDENT KIHICK.
Bt. Louis Team Defeated, and They Throw
Up the Sponge.
QEKERAL BPOETIKG NEWS OP THE DAI
"Well authenticated rumors are current to
the effect that Cincinnati is likely to take
thYpl&ce of Washington in the National
Baseball League, and that Pittsburg trill be
transferred to the Eastern circuit. Presi
dent Nimick favors the idea of sending the
local players South to practice. St. Louis
gives up the pennant struggle. John L.
Sullivan offers to fight any man in the
world. The Pittsburg team defeated the
Braddock Blues by 17 to 0.
It was quietly rumored in the city yester
day that an effort was being made to have
Cincinnati take the place oi Washington in
the Rational Baseball League and to have
Pittsburg transferred to the Eastern circuit.
Nothing definite could be learned from the
officials of the local club, and The Dis
tatch's Washington correspondent was
asked to make inquiries about it: The fol
lowing special from Washington shows that
such a change is being talked of and with
some probability of being made. The spe
Cincinnati will in all probability be ad
mitted to membership in the League at the
November meeting in the event of Wash
ington's withdrawal. This information
comes from an unquestionable source, and the
deal appears to have been contemplated from
the moment Walter Hewitt declared his inten
tion to retire from baseball. Brooklyn would
be delighted to join the League ranks, but
something must be done to strengthen the
Western circuit, as Chicago is now the only
dra wins city in that section. The proposition
which the magnates are now considering is to
AND TBAKSFEB PITTSBUBG
to the Eastern circuit. Brooklyn is one of the
best baseball cities in America and the League
fully appreciates that fact. Under other cir
cumstances the City of Churches would be
welcomed to the League told with open arms.
The Eatern clubs all prefer Brooklyn to any
ritlier city that has been mentioned, but the
Western contingent insists that Cincinnati is a
more desirable city from their standpoint.
Cincinnati is just as anxious to play under the
League banner as the League magnates are to
take the Park City into their family. W th
Cincinnati, Chicago, Cleveland and Indianapo
lis in the West and Philadelphia, New York,
Boston and Pittsburg in the East, the two cir
cuits will be about as equally balanced as
IT DEPENDS ON HEWITT.
Of course this deal will only be consummated
providing Mr. Hewitt persists in disposing of
his franchise. The President still bas hopes of
retaining tbe Washington club in the League.
He says Mr. Hewitt -is feeling very blue, be
cause be has just closed a very unprofitable
season, in consequence of limp attendance at
home and abroad during tbe last two months.
He as obliged to par out about $4,0u0 per
month for salaries, and in a majority of the
games played in August and September he
barely took in an amount equal to the guaran
tee. He naturally feels unlike exploring the
' baseball field any further just now, but in a
few weeks be may. His League colleagues are
desirous that be should linger with them, and
they are disposed to do all that is reasonable to
induce him to change his mind.
"WILL GEANT SOME PEIVILEGES.
But should he remain firm in Ins determin
ation to quit he will be given the same privi
leges in trying to cct out somewhere near even
which were accorded to tbe Detroit club one
year ago. Should tbe Cmcinnatis retire from
the American Association during the month of
November they can take with them into the
Leagne all of the members of their present
team, if they so desire. That privilege is granted
tucrn in section six of the national agreement,
"That nothing herein contained shall prohibit
a club, member of either association party
hereto, from resigning its membership In such
association, during the month of November in
any year, and being admitted to membership in
the other association, with all rights and priv
ileges conferred by this agreement."
WILL GO DOTO SOUTH.
President Nimick Fnvors the Id en of Send
Idc the Players to Florida He Snji
Hnnlon Hni Agreed to Ile
mnln With the Clnb.
President Nimick, of the local ball club,
was in somewhat of a confidential mood yes
terday afternoon. He talked frankly about
the affairs of the clnb, with special reference
to the future. He said, among other things:
"We'll certainly have a club here next
season, and Ed Hanlon has agreed to man
age it. I have had a talk with him on the
matter, and he states that he is quite satis
fied to hold the position. I am satisfied
with Hanlon, and think everybody inter
ested in tbe clnb will be the same. He has
done well, indeed, and therefore we are agreed
to keep him in charge. 1 think, with Hanlon
manager and captain, another good catcher
and one ortwo changes that we intend to make,
we will have something like a very strong
Mr. Nimick also made an important state
ment about getting the men into condition be
fore the championship season opens. He said:
"I have had an exchange of opinion with Man
ager Hanlon on this question, and I may say
that something will be done early next year.
Mr. Hanlon suggest that the players be re
quested to report in Florida, or some Southern
place, 'and have aweek's hard practice; when
the week Is ended tbe team to go on a tour and
play toward home. The idea is an excellent
one, and I think the club can afford to stand a
big financial loss on such a trip. The men will
return home, I expect, all in good playing trim,
and that will mean more victories than defeats,
just as it was in the case of the Cleveland team.
What we spend in a trip, such as proposed, will
be returned us 20 tunes over. Certainly tbe
Idea is a good one."
Mr. Nimick went on to say that he 1b not sure
whether or not Dunlap will remain with tbe
team. Of course Dunlap. in a very gentle
manly way, told me to try and secure a man to
fill his place, as be intended to retire at the end
of tbe cason. but I hear that he is inclined to
play another season. I hope be will, because
he is a valuable man."
Mr. Nimick, at the request of a Philadelphia
friend, has resolved to try a young Eastern
catcher named GrauUck. He is considered a
most promising young catcher and an excel
lent thrower. -'All we can do," remarked Mr.
Nimick, "is to make arrangements with him
after the 20th to give him a try next season and
see what be can do."
Doubtless patrons of the local club will be
glad to know that Ed Hanlon is content to re
main as manager of tbe club. He is a practi
cal, able and intelligent ball player, and one
who certainly knows his business. The fact
that tbe club is so desirous tor him to remain
proves that his work has been highly appre
ciated. Tbe other idea, viz., that of sending
the players South early in the year, is also one
of the best The players are all delighted with
It. and, undoubtedly, the patrons ot the club
will heartily Indorse the plan. President Nim
ick, with strong reasons, claims that to a very
.great extent a manager is responsible for the
condition dt the mtu who are playing. "If a
player is cot In condition when he reports the
manager mist s'jike his name off the pay roll.
If we put the players into practice down boutb,
as proposed, tlien it is the manager'sTdutv to
see that every member of tbe team gets Into
THE POOR BLUER.
They Fall to Get a Rnn and the Pitubnrc
" Got 17.
The local ball team played tbe Braddock
Blues at Braddock: yesterday and walloped the
poor fellows shockingly. The score 17 to 0
speaks for Itself The weather was fine, and
about GOO people saw tbe farce. The Blues
fielded wretchedly, and Eillen pitched a fair
game for an amateur. Retzel did well at third,
and Linton caught fairly well. A double play
by B. Bennett and Shields with three monon
bases created some loud cheering. The rjlav
was a pretty one. The amateurs were all sadly.

Brovrn Pennant ApIrntlon Com
pletely Settled at Cincinnati.
Cincinnati, October 15. St, Louis' chances
for winning tbe Association pennant were
knocked into a cocked hat this afternoon by
the Clnclnnatls winning the first game that
was played. The Browns had a bad case of
rattle all through the game, and they were also
unable to bat or run the bases with any suc
cess. Stivettswa8 batted very hard by the
Reds, while St. Louis could ao but very little
with Dnryea's delivery.
Both teams played indifferently in the second
game and the Browns won by bunching five of
their six hits in the second and fifth inning.
The St. Louis will not go to Philadelphia to
play the postponed games with the Athletics.
To-night President Von der Abe and his men
will return to St. Louis. Score:

WAISTS ANOTHER VICTIM.
John Im Sullivan Eager to Pulverize Smith
or Anybody Else The Big Fellow
Offers to Pay All Expenses
for n Fight.
I SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE PtSPATCrt.
New York, October 15.-Johu L. Sullivan
wants to fight again, and as soon as possible.
Hear the great man's challenge in his own in
imitably vigorous and boiled down language:
Twant to fight. Pve got the championship,
but any man in the world is welcome to try lo
get it if he can. I want to fight, and I'll accom
modate any man on this earth and for any sum
of money, for no fighter, of course," (this re
flectively) "can get backing to approach mine."
This eloquent burst, of which rugged sim
plicity is the very foundation, will find official
expression soon in a New York paper la which
his sentiments will be found set forth in such
precise and dignified terms, as best become the
formal announcements of diplomacy and prize
righting. In this challenge to tbe wide, wide
world, Sullivan will express a peculiar longing
to have Jem Smith or Charles Mitchell accept
his invitation to come and be upper cut, cross
countered, swinging rigbt-handered ana other
wise attended to, but all will be assured of a
welcome if tbey have backing.
Sullivan considers that justice, that blind
and pre judical enemy of the prize ring, has
made of haro knuckle fightin" an occupation
too precarious to admit of the genuine com
fort that a man should get outof his life work,
and so he savs that gloves and the rules of the
Marquis of Queensberry must be submitted to.
He promises to leave no feature of bis oppo
nent unturned in the effort to convince hira
that Sullivan's hands, even with gloves, can do
all that is required. If Jem Smith will only
come over here Sullivan will gladly pay his ex
penses and pay for his food and bousing while
waiting for tbe sacrifice to come off.
He will also pa v. the thick Englishman's way
out to San Francisco, for he believes that it Is
there, sheltered by the roof and the pull of the
California Athletic Club that the deed should
be done. He Mould not object to an arrange
ment whereby tbe Englishman should be as
sured of a certain sum of money to take home
in lieu of any symmetry that be might leave
behind him in the land of the free and the
home of the big fellow.

A REAL, NOVELTY.
E. C. McClelland to Ran Against a Pacer for
8200 a Side.
An exceedingly novel and what promises to
be a very interesting match was made yester
day afternoon. E. C. McClelland was matched
to run a mile and a hall at Exposition Park on
Saturday next against a horse that has to pace
two miles and thiee-quarters. The horse is
Donald R. The contest is for 200 a side.
Moore Floyd put up the cash for the paeer and
McCIelland's backer posted for the pedestrian.
Certainly a race of the kind named is new
here and it cannot fail to be interesting in
many respects. McClelland Is looked upon as
a remarkable stayer and tolerably speedy and
bas never been beaten, in a match race. How
ever, what ho will do against tbe boise remains
to be seen. Donald R is a local horse ana not
very slow. -It is likely that Mooro Floyd will
drive him. The talent think that the handicap
is a fair one and that the contest will be ex
tremely close if the track is good. The race
will take place between tbe hours of 4 and 5

ISFECIAL TELEanAH TO THX DISPATCH.!
CraciNif AH, October 15. The most hor
rible accident ot the kind that ever occurred
in this city took place at noon to-day. It
was the dashing down to destruction of an
incline plane car with a load of passengers.
Five people were killed outright, and the
other three who were on the car are dying.
The names of the killed are as follows:
Mrs. CALEB B IVES.
Mrs. MARY ERRETT.
Judge WILLIAM M. DICKSON.
Mrs. JAMES HOCHSTETTER.
Miss LILLIAN OSKAMP.
J. H. HAUGH.
Two persons were on the street at the foot
of the incline and injured by pieces of the
wreckage. They were John Miller and
Joseph Hentler. The horror occurred on
what is known as the Main Street Incline
Plane. It is the oldest incline plane in the
city and was bnilt about 20 years ago.
Originally it was the means of transferring
passengers from the down town horse car
line. Last summer, however, the horse
motive was superseded bv electricity and
the incline plane was so changed that in
stead of the usual coaches trucks were
used on the plane.
LOST CONTROL OF TBE CABS.
Engineer Goebel was in charge of the
lever controlling the cars. It was just 12:15
o'clock to-day noon when car No. 29
reached the top. As the car neared the top
of tbe incline the engineer pulled the lever
as usual to slow the motion, but to his hor
ror, although the lever was pushed clear
hack, the car came on with undiminished
velocity. Goebel made tbe most desperate
efforts to stop the engine bnt to no avail.
The car came on and struck with terrific
force against the abutment of the hilltop
landing. Underneath the feet of tbe engi
neer the great wheels of the engine still con
tinued to revolve, winding up the massive
The car conld go up no further, nor was
there any wav to stop the engines. Goebel
heard a grinding of breaking timbers. There
was a creaking and straining beneath the
truck, and oi a sudden the cable was pulled
out irom its powerful fastenings in the
bottom of the truck, and tbe car shot down
ward with its load of precious human
A SHEER DROP OF 800 FEET.
The descent was almost" a sheer drop of
nearly 800 feet. Midway the plane took a
still steeper drop. Like lightning tbe car
shot down this track and striking the gate
at tbe bottom, which divided the depot from
Main street, the upper part of the car went
through and swept across the street
It crashed into Millencamp's grocery
store, carrying with it the entire brick front
of the building, and wrecking its contents.
The two men, Miller and Hentle, were
standing in the street, and wera struck hy
flying fragments. The bottom of the car
remained at the toot of 'he Incline track,
half imbedded in thei foundation walls of
the depot waiting room.
DEATH WAS INSTANTANEOUS.
Mixed iu the debris in almost inextricable
confusion were the eight dead and dying
victims of the wreck. Death to most ot
them must have been instantaneous and
painless. Mrs. Ives, the wife of a promi
nent business man, was 60 years old. Her
neck was broken.
Mr. McFadden was a contractor. He
was literally crushed to a pulp.
Mrs. Errett's neck was also broken. She
was the wife of a well-known publisher.
Judge Dickson, who was formerly a well
known occupant of the bench, was also
terribly crushed and killed instantly.
Michael Kneiss was killed instantly, his
head being crushed between the timbers of
the truck and the wall.
RECOVERING THE VICTIMS.
The news of the horror spread like wild
fire and in less than half an hour a dense
crowd surrounded the scene. Every patrol
wagon and ambulance in the city was called
out and the victims were speedily carried to
the hospital and the morgue. The coroner
was one of the first on the sceue and at once
swore in a committee to investigate the
causes and fix tbe blame.
The cause of the accident was the failure
of the cut offs in the engine to work, tlins
allowing the steam to operate tbe piston and
drive the machinery. "While the accident
was unforeseen, a great deal of censure is
being heaped upon tbe company for their
failure to provide safety brakes.
The inclined plane is owned by the Mt,
Auburn Inclined Plane Company, of which
H. H. Little, of Louisville, is "President;
H. M. Little Superintendent, and J. M.
Doherty Secretary. Mt. Auburn that por
tion of the city to which the inclined plane
cars rnn is one oi the most fashionable
parts of the city. ,
PLACING THE BLAME.
The engineer, so the general rumor pops
does not admit that the fault was his, where
by he virtually throws all the blame on the
pilot. It is also a matter of gossip to-night
,that the car, when it reached the top of the
incline, remained there nearly a minute
while the gatekeeper was trying to open the
iron gates to let the passengers out, but
which were so battered that he conld not
open them. All this time the
machinery was pulling the cable
from its attachment to the car. Those who
believe this Inquire why the passengers
were not lifted over the railing or whythe
car was not fastened in its place during this
sufficient precious minute. But these are
matters of gossip. Experts who have been
sent by the Coroner to the scene, say they
know just how the accident happened and
will tell it at the Coroner's inquest.
A COMPLETE SMASH.
No wreck could be more complete than
that of the car and the incline runmnggear.
Much of it is broken up into splinters too
small for good kindling wood, and, except
the roof of the house, there is not a fragment
cf the wood work of the ruined vehicles left
so large that a three-year old child could not
carry it with ease. Great crowds surrounded
the scene of the wreck tili midnight, and all
through the city the calamity is the solitary
and exclusive theme of conversation.
HIS INCOG. PRESERVED.
The Chicago Bank Thief Apparently
Actuated by Wnnl.
CSPECIAI. TILEGBAM TO TBI DISPATCH.!,
Chicago, October 18. Harry Milbury,
the young man who seized $255 from a de
positor at the First National Bank yester
day afternoon, will hove to appear before
tbe Criminal Court. "He still refuses to give
his right name. His pretty wife and 6
months' old child visited him in the armory
this morning. She said she had accom
panied her husband from New York. She
refused to give his right name, but claimed
he came from a respectable 'family. The
woman and her child were well dressed,
thus refuting the prisoner's statement that
tney were starving.

and in the first two or three dajs tho available
field was pretty well scoured by his friends.
ACCOUNTING FOB NAMES.
"Tbe fact is that Defore my candidacy was
brought home to my friends many of tbem had
signed my opponent's paper. In this way Mr.
McKean secured very many signatures which
I am certain would have come to me."
'Way II ask, Mr. Ford, who your supporters
are?" said the reporter.
"My supporters are some of the best business
men In Pittsburg. I bad. as you will remember,
the Indorsement of tbe Pittsburg City Council
to start with."
Mr. Ford drew a paper from his wallet and
enumerated from it as follows:
"I bad also tbe indorsement of tbe delegates
to tbe Republican National Convention; the
County and City Committees in toto; letters
from both of tbe Chairmen: tbe indorsement of
the delegates to the last convention ot the
Twenty-second Congressional District, and
many gentlemen active in political life.'
Mr. Ford's next enumerations came into
an amusing conflict with the, list of those
who signed Mr. McEean's petition. Mr.
Ford continued: "I bad the heads of the
city departments and all the city officials."
HIS FIGHTING STRENGTH.
"Yea, I also bad part of the County Judiciary,
Sheriff McCandless, all the County Commis
sioners, County Controller Josiab Speer, Pro
thonotary Bradley, County Register Sam P.
Conner, County Recorder Wm. H. Graham,
Coroner McDowell and Clerk of Courts D. K.
McGunnigle. I also bave 33 per cent ot the city
bants, a large petition of business men and
citizens, headed by Carnegie, Phipps t Co.;
also all the Pennsylvania Railroad officials; a
flattering petition signed by members of tbe
bar, and several petitions embracing many
business men and manufacturers."
"In tbe comparison of petitions how do you
expect to fare, Mr. FordT"
"I regard the signing of petitions as a rather
nerfunctory matter, and are clothed with no
special significance. Against any petitions of
the average sort I sbould think that tbe unan
imous indorsement of tbo entire political ele
ment of Allegheny county, the men who labor
for and uphold tbe Republican party here
abouts Dy their hard work and liberal contribu
tions, ought to baveagteaterweigbt. But no
matter how the fight may go, lam proud of the
aid I have received, and I can hardly believe
that an old and respected custom in the Re
publican history will be overturned and set at
naught simply because the Senator of a State
chooses to come into conflict with the mani
fest, almost hereditary, rights of a Congress
man." M'KEAN'S PARTIAL LIST.

TROUBLE IN THE N0KTHWE8T.
The Canadian Hnlfbreeds Are Getting- Into
a Very Ugly Condition.
"Winnipeg, Man"., Octorber 15. A. L.
Burgess, JDeputy Minister of tbe Interior
Department of Canadl, has just completed
a tour of the Northwest settlements looking
into disputed land matters. Speaking of
the Saskatchewan halfbreeds, Minister
Burgess says they are all right now. As
soon as the railway is completed their means
of support will be cut off, and their condi
tion may form a serious and difficult
problem. The halfbreeds look upon the ad
vent of the railway with so much disfavor,
that although crops were a partial failure
this season and the outlqok is anything but
bright, they absolutely refused to work at
railway construction, although offered
every inducement to do so.
Since tho recent rebellion missionaries
have entirely lost pontrol of them. They
own the choicest lands on,the Saskatchewan
river, and it is expected they will sell out
and go further north in a year or two.
When they again get beyond the limits of
civiliaation it is feared tney trill always be
ius-eguiro ui uuupic uau danger, , .

A Warm Time in the Episcopal Con
vention Because of Proposed
CHANGES IN THE PRAYER BOOK.
A PittsbuTff Delegate a Prominent Fijnre
in the Discussion.
DE. BROOKS USES STRONG LANGUAGE.
Cosiness Asked to Pass a Uniform Divorce law for the
Yesterday's session of the Protestant Epis
copal Convention was a lively one, made so
by the discussion upon the subject of prayer
book revision. The opponents of such action
declared that frequent changes would shake
the iaith of people in religion; while the
friends of the measure took the ground that
if the general faith was no stronger than
that it ought to be shaken.
New Yobk, October 15. In the Protest
ant Episcopal Convention to-day a resolu
tion was passed requesting Congress to pass a
stringent and uniform divorce law for the
District of Columbia and the Territories,
and attention was called to the report of the
late Commissioner of Labor, Carroll J).
"Wright, on the subject of divorce.
At 11:55 the house proceeded to the con
sideration of the order of the day.' Dr.
Huntington ascended the platform to speak
on the subject of the minority's report on
litnrgical revision. He announced that be
would divide his remarks under three heads:
Pint, rhetorical; second, erroneous, and
third, imaginative. He then proceeded to
criticise the report severely.
A WABM BEPLT.
Eev, George M. Christian, of Newark,
one of the members who prepared the
minority report, next arose. He spoke
warmly against any further revision of the
prayer book. He was followed by Rev.
Josepu N. Blanchard, of Michigan, who
opposed further revision.
At the afternoon session Eev. Dr. Cor
nelius F. Swope, of New York,, opened the
debate on the proposed revision of the prayer
book. He deplored the modern tendency to
revise the prayer book, and appealed to the
meeting to stop it, as sacrilegious.
Eev. Dr. Sessums, of Louisina, favored
revision and the minority report He said
there was more harmony in tbe church since
the work of revision was begun. Eev.
Nowel Logan advocated tbe adoption of the
minority report, and the Eev. Daniel E.
Goodwin, of Pennsylvania,
criticised the statement
made by Dr. Sessums that the question of
aegision was ready to die a natural death.
"Revision is more active now than it was
six years ago," he said, "and it will only,
die wnen it is put to aeatn. xne present
convention cannot bind tbe convention oi
1892, and we can set it a good example."
Eev. Dr. E. A. Holland, of Missouri,
told tbe convention that no church could
tell him what prayers to ofler in the privacy
of his family, and he protested against
making a crazy quiltout of the prayer book.
"I am a Low Church man," he cried, "and
I appeal to every Low Church man to vote
against this proposed revision."
Mr. Hill Burgwin, of Pittsburg, thought
the majority report was at least worthy of
consideration, and then Dr. Phillip Brooks
argued strongly in favor of revision.
If an attempt to get nearer the truth could
destroy a man's faith, he thought such faith
bad better be destroyed. He sanctioned
such changes as would keep the craver
book iu living sympathy with the spirit of
tbe age. A resolution proposing to give
each side ten minutes in which to close
the debate was adopted.
At 4.50 tbe Chairman ordered a vote,
which was taken. It was a vote by dioceses,
and the Secretary announced the result as
follows: Aves, 39, noes. 46; divided, 12.
The minority report was therefore lost, and
the report of the majority will come up for
consideration to-morrow. The convention
then adjourned for tbe day.
A MOST HORRIBLE GRIME.
Attempted to Poison an Entlro Family for
a Paltry Estate.
Bebbien Spbings, Mich., October 15.
Horace Sebring, the youth who tried to
poison all the members of his family, in
cluding his mother and father, and thus
come into possession of a paltry estate,
which would have enabled him to get mar
ried, was to-day sentenced to 25 years in the
State prison. Sebring confessed to all the
horrible details of his crime, how he pur
chased the poison and hid it until a suita
ble opportunity was given him to place it
in tbe tea kettle.
All the family partook of the tea hut him
self, and when they discovered they were
poisoned and implored him to go for aid he
stolidly refused and waited for the drug to
do its work. His plans were frustrated,
however, by tbe timely appearance of
neighbors, who succored the victims of his
A Belief That the Court! Will Decide
in Their Favor.
Helena, Mont., October 15. The
have been no new developments in the Sil
ver Bow contest to-day, save that, instead of
the Eepublicans getting in their entire leg

members; but that number is sufficient to
overcome the Democratic majority, which
showed on the face of tbe returns.
The general opinion among lawyers is
that the Silver Bow canvassers had no
authority to go back on the returns, and
that the court, will decide in favor ot the
counting of the ballots as returned by the
judges of the election. The Democrats are
very outspoken in denunciation of the
action of the canvassers.
