Tbe series of ball games for tie -world's
championship games was commenced, and
the Brooklyns beat the Giants in a badly
played game. Tbe Pittsburgs defeated tbe
McKeesports. A meeting of the Baseball
Flaying Rules Committee has been ar
ranged for November 12. There was good
horse racing at Latonia and Elizabeth.
ISPECIAI. TELEGRAM TO TBE DISPATCH. I
New Yoek, October 18. A great crowd
of spectators watched every move in tbe first
game to-day between the New York and
Brooklyn clubs for the championship of the
world. It was a contest in which 9,000 spec
tators were enabled to show their appreciation
of pood work many times. The great feature
of the contest was the windap. The start
seemed exciting enough for a time, but the last
inning played under cover of the darkness,
as it was when the spectators had hard work
to see the ball, was one of the most exciting
moments that has ever been seen on a ball
field. There is no returning board connected
with the world's series, however, and dark
ness therefore does not count. Even if it did,
the game was won by tbe Brooklyns fair and
square, and the fact cannot be blotted out.
VISNEB STAETED THE DISASTER.
In the eighth inning, after one hand out, with
the New Yorks two runs in tbe lead, Visner
opened the show with what proved to be tbe
standing point of the disastrous downfall. Tbe
ball went to left center field, and O'Rourke
was too long in handling it, so that tbe runner
got to second. Smith did not count in tbe run
gctting this time, and bis foul went to Whit
ney, while Richardson fumbled O'Brien's hit
and Visner came home. Two-base hits by Col
lins. Burns and Foutz pat three runs more to
the creait of the visitors, and the victory was
Amid the uproarious rejoicing of the friends
of the visiting team anything beyond the fact
that they bad tbe lead was lost sight of. A
kick was made by Gaffney that it was too dark
to play longer, and he stepped aside for a mo
ment to argue the point. Umpire Ferguson
had at this minute
CALLED THE GAME
Whether be had the right to do so or not no
one knows but he did, and started ton ard the
home plate where Gaffney was at work, to see
v, hat the trouble was. At the same time Foutz
started down toward third base and Ward, who
bad tbe ball in his band, touched the runner
and he was out. By this time all the plajers
had gathered around Umpire Gaffney, and the
spectators rushed on tbe field to learn the de
cision. Many, In fact about all on the field,
thought the game would be called back to tbe
seventh inning, in which case tbe New Yorks
would have won. No one for a. moment
thought of the rule which covers this part of
tbe came, and under which the Brooklyns had
won the moment they scored the run that put
them in the lead. The New Yorks were per
fectly C0ST7DEST OF VICTOET
when they went in to the contest, and even
after tbe visitors had jumped on Keefe for five
runs did they see that they had no picnic on
their bands, and they settled down to work,
and with tbe exception of Collins' borne run iu
the second inning tbe Brooklrns did little or
nothing with the ball until the wind-up. Even
if Keefe was bit bard be had perfect command
of tbe ball, but his failure was a lack of speed.
The ball seemed to sail up to the plato as large
ae a foot balk and the only wonder is that be
did not fare any worse than be did.
TEEET'S GOOD WOEK.
Terry was the mainstay of the visitors and
although the men behind him were badly rat
tlcu at times beseemed to keep perfectly cool,o
that tbe team regained confidence very quickly.
Of Terry's work it can be said that he had a
little tbe best of the honors in tbe way of pitch
ing. He gave several men their bases on balls,
but the hits off him were not only less in num
ber than those made off his opponent, but tbey
vere more bunched and timely. Keefe
Fcemed unfortunate in this respect
for when the Brooklyns did not
bit his cur es they seemed powerless to do any
thing with tbe bat, but when tbey did get down
to work tbey nit witb a will and their hits were
long ones. too. The New Yorks' game was an
uphill contest from the start and tbey overtook
and passed their opponents at tbe half-mile
post, with both sides doing their handsomest.
The race was only half over, however, and so
the home team learned to their cost, for they
in turn ere
OVEETAKES AJTD PASSED
just as the two came under the wire. The
game opened with a bitcb, for when the con
test was ready to start Umpire Lynch, who had
refused an offer of $400 to assist in the games,
failed to show up, and Umpire Knight, who
was wanted also, was nowhere to be found.
Ferguson being tbe only man present. Presi
dent Day agreed to his taking part in the game,
and he aid. But be will take ptrt in no more,
at least that is what tbe New York club man
agers say about it. His shortcomings were nu
merous, besides makmc a monkey of himself
on the field. Everyone present was dissatisfied
with bis work, and. although the contest was
ratber free from the usual kicks that go to
ward cutting down the interest, tbe only dis
putes that were mande were on Ferguson s de

THE Sl'KEESPORTS' DOSE.
Tbey Get Shnt Ont by tbe Plttabargers by
7 to O.
The McKeesports and Pittsburgs played a
wonderfully interesting game at McKeesport
yesterday, and had it not been for tbe last
inning it would have been a very close score.
In that inning the McKeesport clnb appeared
to go to pieces and allowed tbe Pittsburgs to
score four runs without a base hit being made,
tbe score then standing 3 to 0.
Henry Jones, for the home club, pitched a
wonderful game, only allowing tbe big bitters
from Pittsburg to make three base hits, and
also only allowing them one earned run, which
was made by Sowders hitting for two
bases and stealing third and scoring
on Beckley's sacrifice to Gray, whose quick
throw to Qulnn was muffed, which also
allowed Rowc to score. Sowders pitched great
ball, but was bit bard at times. His support
was excellent. White making a brilliant catch
of a bigb liner off Ltston's bat, which was good
for two bases had it not been caught. Gray
played a great game at second base and Tor
reyson did well at third and at short Mar
burger covered himself with glory, excepting
his muffed fly in the eighth inning.
Jones and Liston as a battery are very fine,
and the great pitching of the former is receiv
ing praise from everyone. Liston caught and
threw well outside of one bad throw
to third. Quran put up a very poor game
at first, and Hartman and Smink in middle
and right did excellent work, but bad not much
to do. White, Rowe, Dunlap and Beckley did
excellent n ork in their positions. .
McKeesport surprised tbe Pittsburgs with
their good playii.g and Jones' pitching, and
they were kept hustling all through the game,
as they only had two runs to their credit up to
the sixth inning, when Sunday got first on
Gray's error and stole second and third, and
scored on a bad throw. Jones, who pitched,
was a member, of the Pittsburg in 18S6, and
showed them to-day that be could pitch some.
He is quite a good one.
Tbe clubs will play here again to-morrow
when Qalvin and Miller will be the Pittsburg
battery, and Patterson and Mallery will be in
tbe points for tbe home team. Following is tbe

THE COLONELS' RECORD.
A Wish to Forget tbe Post and Hope for
Louisville, October 18. So fir as Louis
ville is concerned the season is over, and,the
sooner it parses into utter oblivion the better.
It is useless and would be painful to retell the
story of tbe year. Louisville has broken tbe
record, as everybody knows, so with the mere
statement that Louisville won 27 games and
lost 111, and closes tbe season with a percentage
of .193, let the curtain be drawn and pleasanter
subjects taken up.
Tbe pleasantest ot pleasant subjects is tbe
prospect for next year. No one doubts that,
with proper backing. Manager Chapman will
give the city a good club, and it is now assured
that the management will give bim liberal sup
port. Some objection was made to the plan
suggested by the most liberal of the magnates
that each member should put up in a lump
sum $2,500, so a compromise was made bv
which tbe moneyshonld be advanced asneeded",
and not deposited beforehand. When needed
it will be forthcoming, according to tbe agree
ment, and so tbe financial question is settled.
As to the personnel of the club, next season
will see many changes. Nothing has been offi
cially given out as yet. but tbe makeup of the
team, as at present determined upon, will be as
follows: Browning and Raymond will be ex
changed for Latham, who will play third base
and captain tbe team; Ewing and Ebret will be
reinforced in the box by young Keefe. of Syra
cuse, a brother of tbe famous Ditcher of the
New Yorks; McQueery and Childs, who also
played under Manager Chapman during the
past season, wdl be on first and second bases; a
shortstop and an outfielder will also be secured,
and altogether tbe club will bear an entirely
different appearance next April.

He Onco Looked So Worthless That Tbey
Nearly Killed Him.
Lexington, October 18. Colonel B. G.
Bruce said to-day about the famous Axtell, now
here: "Mr. C. W. Williams bought the dams of
Axtell and Allerton from Messrs. H. L, and T.
D. Stout, Highland Stock Farm, Dubuque.
Axtell and Allerton were both foaled at Lex
ington, Ky., in T. J. Montague's stable on Short
street Mr. Montague, before be bought the
omnibus line, cared for Mr. Williams stock for
some five or six years. Mr. Williams would
send his mares here early in the seasou to let
them foal and breed them again, and then take
them back to his farm in Iowa.
"When Axtell was foaled he was so small and
had such bad, crooked and curby bocks that
Mr. Hussey, who had charge of Mr. Williams'
stock, thought tbe colt ought to be killed.
Here is a striking example of what tall oaks
from little acorns grow, as Axtell is tbe fastest
and most wnnrlprfnl S-vear-old trotter that this
country has ever produced, and I expect to see
bim still further reduce his
before the snow flies."

The case was tried by Judge Horton on June
1 in the afternoon.
A PECULIAR PBOCEEDING.
A previous application had been made
for a hearing, but- when the Court dis
covered that Chisholm's name purported to
be signed to an appearance by him waiving
service and consenting to a default, he made
some inquiries that resulted in a continu
ance. "Where is Chisholm?" asked the Judge.
"Well, he is in hiding," answered Mr.
Dow. "You see, your Honor, his home
was in Hamilton, Canada, but he got into
some trouble there and was obliged to nee.
Up does not wish 111s Hiding place known.
"How did you get his signature to this
"The paper was sent to him under cover
and he returned it by the same means."
"Does his wife kuow his whereabouts?"
"She does, but she does not wish to
"Well, I have no information that this is
the defendant's signature. I don't wish
Mrs. Chisholm to reveal her husband's
whereabouts if he is likely to be given over
to the law, but there must be some proof
that this is his signature."
SATISFYING THE COUET.
"I can bring a witness to prove that,"
said Mr. Dow.
Accordingly June i, Mrs. Chisholm and
her lawyer appeared again with James M.
Davis, a brother of Mrs. Chisholm, who
said that Chisholm's signature was known
to him and the collusive agreement by
which Chisholm was not to fight the divorce
suit, was Chisholm's. He said that his sis
ter and Chisholm lived together in Hamil
ton, Canada, until 1883, when he fled to
some place unknown.
"Under what circumstances," Davis was
"It was because of a1 misappropriation of
moneys intrusted to his care. He appro
priated the proceeds of sales of mortgages to
which he had no right."
"What was his business?"
"He was attorney and president of an in
"He has never been to Canada since, to
your knowledge ?"
"He has not. I have been there every

there, nor has there been any trace of him."
cause of his flight.
Mrs. Chisholm testified that she was mar
ried to Chisholm in August, 18.64, aud they
lived together until 1883. They had a son
18 years old. who was in a preparatory col
lege in Canada. She gave him no cause to
leave her, having attended well to her duties
as a wile.
"In general, what was the cause of his
"The cause of his leaving was his getting
into trouble with his clients about money
The Court showed that his suspicions
were not entirely allayed by the handsome
complainant's placid carriage by asking:
"How long have yon lived in Chicago?"
"One year, last January."
"Did you come here from Hamilton?"
"No, irom Ottawa."
"For the purpose of gettine a divorce?"
The Judge was visibly impressed with the
truthfulness of Mrs. Chisholm and the in
tegrity of her motives when she replied
firmly as she looked straight in the Judge's
" "I did not come here for that purpose."
AN evident deception.
The Ottawa dispatch shows how a court
can be deceived, because she did come here
to get a divorce in order to marry Hon.
George Foster, as is proven by the (act that
the divorce was granted in June, and she is
now the Hon. Mrs. George Foster. The in
formation from Ottawa also makes the cir
cumstances under' which Chisholm con
sented to an immediate trial of the case
There is no divorce in Canada except
through Parliament and international
question may arise as to whether the De
minion courts will recognize a Chicago
decree. They have never done so hereto
fore, and Mrs. Foster's only chance to get
out ol the muddle is to let Chisholm get his
divorce from Parliament. Whether Chis
holm repudiates the alleged agreement al
lowing his wife to get her Chicago divorce
is not known.

The Charred Remains of Tboma Dougherty
Fount' In a Furnnce Ventilating Shaft at
Chnrllefs Rumor Disposed Of. .
The mortuary room at the morgue has
rarely held more horrible evidences of a
lingering and agonizing death than were
brought in the dead wagon from Chartiers
about 5 P. M. yesterday. James P. Tallow,
an employe of Long's Mills, at Chartiers,
while examining his furnace thought be
saw a man lying in the ventilating shaft
underneath. He made several ineffectual,
efforts to get at the body, which he soon dis
covered it to be, and finally about eight
feet of the brickwork were removed, reveal
ing a most ghastly sight.
It was the body of a man, apparently
auuui uvc jcci ciguk .uviica 111 ueignt wnen
whcle.but dried up,and what flesh remained
mummified by tbe hot air blast which
had evidently been playing upon it for
many days. The skull was perfectly bare
and the eyes evaporated from the sockets,
wbile the" jaws were ccvered with a parchment-like
integument which still preserved
a black mustache and chin beard. The
flesh was gone from the lower portions of
the legs and the bones, dried and browned
by the heat, were lying in the position rela
tive to the upper portion of the body to
which they belonged.
The wildest excitement prevailed about
the mill for some time, all sorts of rumors
of foul play and murder gaining credence,
while no one could be found who recognized
either the clothing or the remains. A mes
sage was telephoned to the Coroner and the
baked fragments of humanity taken to the
morgue. In the pockets were found a pair
of insoles for shoes, a paper of tobacco, the
paper showing evidences of having been
subjected to slow heat
Shortly after the arrival of the remains at
the morgue they were identified by Thomas
Grogan and two other employes of the
.hagle Mills, as those of Thomas Dougherty,
a pipe liue worker, who was formerly a mill
man but recently had worked for Pat
Foley, the contractor. They said Dougherty
had been missing sinee Thursday, 10th inst.,
on which day he had left for Ch'artiers and
had started out with 50 cents given him by
his brother. It is supposed on reaching
Chartiers, Dougherty, feeling tired and
cold, crept into the shaft for warmth and
the gas was turned on before he awoke. As
no flame passes into the shaft the man must
have been slowly roasted to death unless an
escape ot gas first mercifully asphyxiated
The remains will be removed to his
brother's residence in the Thirty-sixth ward,
to-day, and an inquest will be held this
morning. The deceased was 40 years of
age and unmarried.
SAID TO BE A BUGABOO.
Leaving the City Dark Laughed at
What Mr. Duncan Said.
It has been reported that the absorption of
three-fonrths of the Brush Electric Light
Company's stock by the Thomson-Houston
Company, of Boston, may leave the streets
of Pittsbarg in total darkness some of these
The Thomson-Houston Company paid
$3,250,000 for the controlling interest in the
Brush Company. It has also secured con
trol of the Jenny Electric Light Company,
of Indianapolis and of Ft. Wayne, and the
American interest in the Swan system, and
is claimed to practically control the aro
electric light systems in" the United States.
G. W. Stookley and John E. Eidall are
authority for the statement tbat while some
stockholders of the Brush Company have
agreed to sell part of their stock, yet the
purchase has not been fully consummated.
It is said the Brush Company is not to be
absorbed and that the arrangement, if per
fected, will be of great advantage to both
Mr. Duncan, of the Allegheny County
Electric Light Company, stated fast night
tbat the dire prediction of total darkness
was unfounded. He stated that not only,.

cessful operation, but that their contract
with the Brush Company could not be
lightly set aside.
Indlffnant Citizens Looking for an Alleged
A gray-haired man, who represents him
self to be the agent ot a life insurance com
pany, is going about the city insultintr and
frightening women, and quite a number of
men are anxious to get their hands on the
fellow. During the past week he has been
operating in the Second and Third wards.
He is described as a man of medium
height, of rather slender build, with hair
and beard nearly white. He dresses in sober
black, wears spectacles and possesses ratber
a clerical appearance. It is his custom to
visit houses during the daytime, at the hours
when men are at their work aud the women
are alone. Under the pretense that he is
considering her eligibility to be insured,
he asks a woman all sorts of impudent and
insulting questions. Several ladies in the
Second ward have complained that he has
laid hands on them, frightening them almost
out ot their wits. From the stories told of
his conduct it seems likely that tbe man is a
fraud, as far as his insurance business is con
cerned. Ho instance has been found where
he gave the name of the company which he
pretended to represent. If any insurance
house in the city has an agent answering this
description, it would be to their interest to
give him an eternal vacation.
A QDEERLI WORDED WILL.
It Starts on One Line and Ends on Another,
bnt U Not Uncertain.
A very queerly constrncted will was filed
in the County Begister's office yesterday. It
starts off in nuncupative style, but winds up
with the signature of the testatrix duly wit
nessed. The material parts are as follows:
On tbe 15th day ot April, A. D. 1859, Sarah
Ann McQee, being in the extremity of her last
Eickness. in the city of Pittsburg, in tbe pres
ence of the subscribers, did declare her last will
and testament in the following words, or to tbat
effect viz: She mentioned that sho owns 8
acres more or less of farm land iu Clearfield
township, Butler county, f Iwantmy
brother, Wm. McGee, to have tbe same, and to
bave undisputed possession to use for his own
benefit as he may see fit, first paying my just
debts and funeral expenses.
At the time the said Sarah Ann McGee pro
nounced the foregoing will sbe was of sound
mind and understanding, and bid us who were
present to bear witness tbat such was her will.

is given verbatim et literatim below and
matters of incidental interest. Gernert's

the table was profusely decorated with flow

As strict secrecy was enjoined to be ob

of a purely personal and private character,
the press was rigorously excluded from a
chance of recording the words of wisdom
which, no doubt, feU from the lips of the

some interesting speech making was in

present was afforded an opportunity of "ris
