CASSATT RETIRES FROM THE TURF
fan Interesting Talk Abont the Trotting
Meeting at Lexington.
GENERAL SPORTIXG KEWS OF THE DAI
,' President Kimick slates that some local
Iplayers have faithfully promised to remain
with the Pittsburg club, and are as good as
signed. It is claimed that the local club
cannot hold Pitcher Jones. A. J. Cassatt,
kthe Pennsylvania horseman, has resolved to
'retire from the turl, and his runners will be
' sold at once.
To-day will be one of great interest to the
baseball enthusiasts of the country for all
the players are eligible to sign and resign
for next year. The interest will be unusu
, ally great because ef the many rumors re-
garding the intention of the Brotherhood.
' However, President Ximick. of the local club,
I during a conversation on the matter lasteven
t ing evinced little concern about the situation.
' "Of course we expect all of our players to
I sign without any trouble. Sunday has given
j -us his word that he will do so and that is just as
, good as his bond. He may sign to-morrow,
(however, we'll have no trouble with him,
although he is not reserved by us. We took
his word as a. guarantee of his intentions and
j depend upon it he'll keep it. His nonestceal-
flng enabled us to reserve another player.
iManagerHanlon has also given us his word of
1 honor. But at any rate I think that Hanlon
would be a very foolish man to even think of
' jolninc any other club or any other organization
Itf money is what he is looking alter. As
jmanager, captain and player in our club he
will get more by far than he'll get elsewhere.
Eo that he is only looking after and protecting
his own interests when he promises us faitb-
jfulty to remain with the club."
KEADT TO SIGN.
Beside the players above mentioned, Jake
(Eeckley stated last evening that be is ready to
jsign to-day if his demands are granted. He
refused to state what they are, but he'll haTe a
'.conference with President Kimick and Secre
tary Scandrett this morning relative to the
question. It is understood that one of there
quests of the genial and famous first baseman
.will be to be allowed to go home this evening. Re
jls invited to participate in a most enjoyable trip
.out West, and a friend ot his stated last even
ing that Jake's hopes are extremely high con
cerning getting away. Probably no player de
'serves a little favor more than Becklcy.
It is also understood that Carroll before
leaving promised to sign a contract as soon as
It was forwarded to him. These promises indi
cate that, despite the rumors to the contrary,
some very importa'nt players intend to sign at
once if their terms are granted. A member of
'the team stated last evening that Fred Dunlap
will be in his usual place at second base in the
Pittsburg team next year. It is stated that
CHANGED HIS MIND
about retiring from the ball field just at pres
ent. A gentleman connected with the club
stated last evening that it is not the intention
of the officials to ask any ot the players to sign,
but if they desire to do so and their demands
can be granted, they can sign at once.
The players generallyare anxious to get away
home as soon as possible, and they claim that
It is piling unnecessary expense on them keep
ing them here doing nothing. One prominent
member of the team said "If the club officials
refuse to grant us such little favors, such as
allowing us to go home a few days before our
certified time is up when we are doing nothing.
don't know how they can expect us to
grant them any favors, and one favor is just as
jood as another. A little favor might result in
jetting the majority of us to sign for next
teason, while on the other hand the withhold
ing of it might cause much obstinacy and
There was an interesting discussion among
lome of the players relative to Pitcher Jones'
Jase. One speaker said: "I don't think the
dub has any claim on Jones at all. although his
lame is on the reserve list. He has never been
Ugned either by contract or writing of any
"At least Jones states this himself, and if his
itatement is true. I don't seo how the club can
ay any claim to him. He was paid oft on Satnr
lay, and he complained strongly about not
eing dealt with as the other players are."
The officials of the club claim that they have
in understanding with Jones equal to a
ontract. However, they state that Jones is
ill right, and that he will certainly pitch for the
?ittsburg club next jcar if all goes well.
Referring to the annual League meeting
?resident Nimick said: "Undoubtedly the
neeting will be of unusual interest, bnt I don't
bink that any great changes will be made in
he rules or constitution. Of course I expect
o see the classification rule changed or modi
led. If it is abolished something else will he
ut in its place, though it may not be as far
eaching as the classification plan. I am not in
. position to say what will be offered in its
lace, but it is natural to expect that those who
je finding so much fault vitli it will have a
ntntitnte. About the BrotLerhood. Well, I
hmk it will be one of the best things that ever
opened for the League if some of the play
rs would start up a new organization. The re
ult would speedily be that all of the players
rould be applying to the League for engage
ments at almost any price- Speaking senonsly,
don't think thattheplajersarefoolishenongh

One of the most popular patrons of the trot

eing publicly used, but whose jolly face is
ell known, was in the city yesterday and
liked very interestingly about the recent trot

The Wealthy Fennijlvnnla Horseman Ue-
aolvea to Leave the Turf Reason!
for Ills Action His Runners nod
Tenrllnes to be Sold.
New York. October 2a Mr. A. J. Cassatt,
one of the wealthiest and most enthusiastic
patrons of racing In this country, has deter
mined upon an immediate retirement from the
turf, and it is quite probable that the famous
tii-color ot Chcsterbrook, which has been
borne to victory by some of the greatest horses
seen in recent years, will never appear on a
race course again.
All of Mr. Cassatt's racers will be sold under
the hammer, without reserve, at the American
Horse Exchange In this city, on Tuesday, Octo
ber 29, and with their disposal the great "Kelso
Stable" will be a thing of the past.
In response to questions as to the cause of
Mr. Cassatt's retirement. Colonel Bruce said:
"Mr. Cassatt's horses have caused him more
or less trouble uuring the past season, and as
he felt that he needed a complete rest be de
cided to get rid of them and go abroad. His
departure will occur immediately after the
sale, and he will not return inside of a year,
and perhaps be will remain on the other side
somewhat longer. I am quite sure that Mr.
Cassatt is not quitting the turf because of any
disappointments he may have received in con
nection with it. In fact, I am certain that ho
is not disgusted with racing. Nor yet has he
found it an unprofitable kind of sport. His
stable has always been a good winner in days
gone by, and during the present season his
horses have won in stakes and purses some
thing over $60,000. Still Mr. Cassatt is de
termined to mako his present separation from
racing complete, if not altogether permanent."
"You think, then, that it is possible he may
return to the tnrt again I"
"1 can hardly say that. Mr. Pierre Lorillard
retired and has again returned, and Mr. Cas
satt may do the same. Bnt if be does it will
bo with an entirely new stable, for he will not
retain a single one of the race horses now in
his possession, Enrns alone excepted. This
horse has not yet recovered from the effects of
the raco at Monmouth Park last summer
which rendered him lame, and Mr. Cassatt
thinks that he wonld not bring a fair price if
put up at auction in his present condition. But
if he were sound and well he would surely go
with the others."
"Will Mr. Cassatt sell his breeding establish
ment alio ?"
"No, that will remain intact, for althongh

horses at Rancocas in February, 1SS6. Mr.
Cassatt has not been connected with the turf
for as many years as Mr. Withers. Mr. Belmont
and others of the more important owners, but
during the time that he has been engaged in
racing he has owned some of the greatest
thoroughbreds in the land. The star of the
stable was The Bard, the finest racer of his
time. Mr. Cassatt first raced under the pseu
donym of "Mr. Kelso."
Mr. Cassatt's withdrawal from active racing
is a great loss to the turf, which stands in need
of the support of high toned gentlemen. The
proprietor ol Chesterbrook was not in the busi

SHARPENING THE AX
Johnston, Alndden nnd Rndbonrne fllarked
Men by Boston.
tCFECIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Boston, October 20. Already the Boston
triumvirs are beginning to sharpen the ax for
next season, and there are Indications that con
siderable dead wood will be cut away from the
Boston club. The marked men are Johnston,
Madden and Radbourne. Two other players
are under a cloud, and one of them will
probably have to go. It will be seen that
the most important changes in the Boston
team for next year will be in the pitching.
Clarkson was expected to and depended on to
win the championship, as far as pitching was
concerned. The men who were supposed to
be able and willing to help him out once In
awhile were attacked with faintness of heart
when the race became close, as witness Rad
bourne at Chicago and Indianapolis, and Mad
den at Pittsburg, whtfre, in two of the three
caes when they thought they were losing the
game in which they were pitchiug, they want
ed to be taken out and substituted by Clarkson
to finish it out.
When the men come to open their mail to
morrow morning they will find a check in pay
ment of their salary In full for the season, an
interesting legal document in the shape of a
formal notice to the player that the Boston
club, by virtue of its contract with him, holds
an option on his services for next year, and
that the club is now ready to fulfill its claim to
that option by signing him for the season 1S90.

ADMINISTRATION RELIGIOUS ITEMS.
The President Wnlks to Church Wearing a
Bklnlng Silk Tilo.
rsrECLlt TELEGRAM TO THE DISrATCTT.I
"Washington, October 20. President
Harrison walked to church to-day, with a
shining silk hat on his" head and with natty
brown gloves gripping a cane which bore a.
head fashionably overgrown. At 'the Church
of the Covenant the announcement was
made that the teacher of the Bible class, who
was anonymously announced last Sunday is
Assistant Attorney General Shields, of the
Interior Department, thereby putting at rest
all surmises about Private Secretary Hal
Jord and Postmaster General Wanamaker.
The various local churches appear to be
willing to gain all the advantage they can
out of the religious tendencies of the admin
istration, for at the New York Avenue
Presbyterian Church it was announced to
day Ih'at a high official of the Government
would next Sunday begin teaching the
ladies' Bible class. No name was given,
but Attorney General Miller was supposed
by the audience to be the man referred to.
The rivalry among the churches for prom
inent members of the administration as
teachers of Bible classes is becoming quite
oitter, and some extraordinary church poli
tics are expected to result therefrom.
Another interesting administration re
ligious item is that Harry McKnight, of
Philadelphia, a clerk in the city postoffice
and a protege of Postmaster General Wana
maker, is preparing plans for establishing

audience to a party of French pilgrims and
delivered an address to them. He appeared

In his address he urged the necessity of re
ligion for the masses, and said that the
Papacy was a protector of the working
classes. He also reiterated his protests
against the attitnde of the Italian Govern
ment toward the Papacy.
The Pope advised the formation of an as
sociation, which shall be devoted to secur
ing the material welfare of workmen by
procuring increased facilities for labor, in
culcating principles of economy and de
fending the rights and legitimate claims of
workmen. He expressed the hope that go v
e rnments evervwhere would treat the work
ing classes with kindness and endeavor to
restrain tendencies toward luxury and an
undue desire for wealth. He advised mas
ters to be kind to their workmen, and work
men to be obedient to their masters.

killed a bear. Upon examining the carcass
of Bruin the hunter was surprised to find,
by a mark upon it, that he had killed one
of two bears that escaped from Obadiah
Cheesebrough's sen last January.
IBFECIAI. TELEGRAM TO TIHE DISPATCH.:
Sceanton, October 20. Three years ago
last spring, Obadiah Cheesebrongh, who
lives at the base of Peachstone mountain, in
Springbrook township, captnred a pair of
male cub bears in a ravine near Monument
creek. The mother bear overhauled and
tackled him before he had gone far, and
after a hard fight he killed her. Cheese
brough's left arm and side were badly torn
in his tussel with the old bear, and the scars
are there yet. The cubs got away while he
was engaged in the conflict, bnt the next
day Cheesebrough's sons, Harvey and
Eugene, recaptured the cubs and took them
home. , '
When they were a few weeks old Cheese
brough marked the young bears, so that he
conld claim them if they ever strayed away.
He had an old branding iron with a figure
6 on the end of it, and on the left shoulder
of one of the cubs he branded that figure.
Then he inverted the iron and burned a
figure 9 on the right shoulder of the other
cub. He hadn't named the cnbs yet, and he
decided to call them Six and Nine.
THE CUBS BECOME PETS.
From that time on the names were ap
plied to the young bears so often by all of
Mr. Cheesebrough's folks, that the little
animals soon got to know them, responding
to their respective titles as readily as two
intelligent dogs. During the first "year Six
and Nine were great pets on Mr. Cheese
brough's place, and in the daytimetbeyhad
the freedom of the premises. At night they
were confined in a pen.
Last fall both bears began to grow cross
and unmanageable. Before then they had
been friendly to Mr. Cheesebrough's dogs,
but thfy became so ferocious after a time,
that they nearly killed his fox hound one
day, and it was not safe for the dogs to go
near them, Nine was the more ferocions
and unruly. Last October he killed a
large rabbit dog owned bv Harold Wharton,
and later On he squeezed the life out of one
of Mr. Cheesebrough's shoats and devoured
it. Six wandered away one day in the fall
and captnred a sheep" from George Board
man's field, lugged it into a clump of
bushes and feasted on it.
A little too costly.
They were both getting to be altogether
too expensive pets to suit the notions of Mr.
Cheesebrongh, and he concluded to confine
them nntil the latter part of January and
then butcher them and sell their hides and
meat. Early in December he built a strong
log pen and placed Six and Nine in it He
removed the straps from their necks, let
them have full swing, and fed them regu
larly. They grew crosser and crosser, and
no dog ventured to go near the pen. The
bears did not fatten very rapidly in their
narrow quarters, and confinement made
On the night of January 9 the bears broke
out ol their pen and disappeared. It was a
rainy, warm night, and there was no snow
on the ground. On the morning of the 10th.
as soon as their owner found that his bears
had broken out and rnn away, he got a
party together and went in search of them.
Everybody in the township knew the bears
by siht and name, but not one of the
searching party got a glimpse of either Six
or Nine in the long day's hunt.
TRACKS OP THE FUGITIVES
wire found in the muddy road here and
there, within half a mile of Mr. Cheese
brough's house, but the trail was lost on the
upland and it was never found again.
Harvey and Eugene searched high and
low for Six and Nine atintervalsduring the
next fortnight, and then they gave it us, in
the hope that the bears would come around
of their own accord when they got tired of
leading a wild life. But the bears did not
get tired, it seemed, for they never returned.
Last Wednesday Isaac Horton and his
spaniel, Kick, were tramping through the
wilds of Panther creek. Horton carried a
double-barreled breech-loading shotgun,
and was on his way to a wintergreen patch
where he knew partriages to be plentiful.
The dog was out ot sight a good deal of the
time, running here and there through the
brnsh and over logs, and occasionally bark
ing at a squirrel or a chipmunk that scam
pered away from him. Horton let Nick
have his own way, and the dog soon strayed
into an old windfall and
began to telp
as though he was being murdered. The
hunter clambered over the fallen trees as
fast as he could; and found that the dog had
run foul of a big bear underneath a large
log. Horton came face to face with the

Trip Around the Cltr the
Chicago, October 20. The Sabbath day
was indeed a day of much needed rest to the
delegates to the International Pan-American
Congress. Eighteen days ago they
started from the city of Washington. Sinbe
that day they have been speeding with
lightning rapidity through the vast terri
tory of the United States, tarrying but long
enough in the populous cities and busy
towns on theirroute to get a glimpse of their
wealth and resources and future pros
pects. To be sure, their accommoda
tions comprise everything that
human ingenuity can devise to alleviate
the discomforts o'f travel, the people with
whom they have been thrown in contact
have been most considerate, their welfare
and programmes for their entertainment
have been promptly abridged or otherwise
modified to meet the slightest suggestion,
bnt, nevertheless, the last week has been the
most exhausting in its demands upon the
physical strength of the delegates, and they
welcomed the announcement that to-day they
were at liberty to rest Consequently, few
of the party were seen at the breakfast
tables this morning, and it was well along
toward noon before the majority of them de
serted their comfortable beds and appeared
in the lobby of the hotel where they are
Carriages had been kept in waitingby the
Beception Committee, and snch of the ex
cursionists as felt inclined were driven along
the lake frontoron other attractive avenues.
After dinner about 30 of the party were
tacen in cnarge oy tne local committee ana
escorted to the Armour Mission and Kin
dergarten, where 1,500 children are cared
for spiritually and materially. The usual
Sunday service was in progress when they
entered the building, and after listeningto
some hymns they were shown into the Kin
dergarten. There were no demonstrations
or departures from the ordinary practices of
this school, except that the children had
been gotten together on Sunday instead of
a week day, but it may safety hg
said that npon no other occasion during
their journey were the delegates more deeply
interested than when the 75 little tots,
neatly but plainly attired, whispered first
the words and then sang in smaU infantile
voices, and with such expression as the
teacher's warning finger conld inspire, of
the mother dove and her little ones, and of
the baby's birthday.
The carriages were again called into re
quisition, and the distinguished visitors
were taken on a long drive along Michigan
avenue, where they saw how Chicago's
wealthy men live, and so on back to their
hotel and to dinner. This evening, at the
suggestion of those in charge, the delegates
were left undisturbed for rest
A C0MMDN1TI EXCITED.
Rewards Offered For tbe Arrest and Con
viction of a Murderer and Robber.
Cabthage, Mo., October 20. No little
excitement has been created by the murder
and robbery of G. N. Horn, a prominent
grocer, while on his way home one
week ago last night. The city of
fered a reward of $200 and by private
subscriptions an additional reward of $285
had also been raised. These rewards have
aroused the local officers to pnt forth every
exertion for the capture of the mur
derer. The coroner's jury has been
in session almost continuouslr since
the night of the tragedy and
has not yet adjourned. Snspicton has
pointed strongly toward Henry Shockley, a
notorious tongh character of this city, as
the murderer. He has been in the employ
of a gentleman who has a railroad contract
in the Indian Nation.
Shockley, who was on a spree Saturday
and Sunday lost, left here Monday to rejoin
the party of railroad laborers to which he
was attached. Enough evidence having
been obtained to warrant his arrest,
a depnty sheriff was dispatched to the
Nation in pursuit of him last Thursday.
The capture was effected yesterday at Chou
teau, in the Indian Territory, the
arrest being made through one of
the Indian policemen. Shockley was
brought here this morning and lodged in
jail. He asserts his innocence, but has very
little to say. He will endeavor to prove an
alibi. Evidence against him is purely cir
cumstantial. EIGHTEEN PRISONERS ESCAPE.

Eighteen prisoners escaped from the New

last evening and 6 o'clock this morning.
The men, who were all confined
in the large cell, made their
exit by going down the opening to
the sewer, crawling under the- floor
to the northeast wall, and then digging a
hole about three feet in cirenmference under
the wall, the bottom of which is only three
feet below the surface, and out into the

Escape then was very easy, as Wilming

A BIG 0PENIKG F0RK0RTHERN CAPITAL.
An Almost Complete BteoTcry from the 111 Fortunes

A Mississippi correspondent finds that
Cotton U King qnite as truly as before the
war.though the kingdom is not so tyrannical
now as then. There is sufficient profit in
its cultivation to attract Northern capital
in large lumps. Strangely enough, the cot
ton planter neglects to raise much of any
thing else, but buys melons and other
vegetables of merchants.
I CORRESPONDENCE OF THE DISPATCH. !
Meridian, Miss., October 18. The days
when tbe South shouted "Cotton is King,
and the North his subject," have passed,
and in their stead have come days when
the North and the South unite in a common
interest and pay homage to cotton and its
kingdom. This New South is every day
receiving more attention from Yankee capi
talists. Vast as the realm of cotton may
appear at present, it is but the hint of what
the futnre will develop. It is estimated
that hardly 5 per cent of the cotton area is
n6w devoted to cotton.
The growth of manufacture in the South,
too, is sympathetic, and Northern capitalists
have found no investment so successful in
the Sonth as that put into cotton factories.
As yet our home consumption amounts to so
much that only a small margin is left for
export. The immense population of warm
foreign conntries will demand all our surplus
cottons just so soon as we can deliver them
upon competing terms with English mills.
The "fortunes of war" worked disastrous
changes in Cotton's realm; the lack of cap
ital lor so many years retarded the growth
of manufactures, but the millions being in
vested now by powerful corporations show
how soon confidence has been won.
PHENOMENAL GBOWTH OF WEALTH.
The growth ot wealth is positively phe
nomenal, tne cotton crop alone pouring
annually into the country $160,000,000. As
yet land can be purchased low, laborers are
abundant, water power cheap, and the day
not far distant when the Southern pride
will realize its ambition,. "that the manu
facturer of the crop, as well as the crop it
sell, shall be a monopoly of the cotton
The whole question of cotton has been,
until recently, covered in its use as a manu
factured article for clothing; but, by expert
authority, it is stated that "if the cotton
plant could be grown at the North, yet
without the lint, it would have been made,
long ere this, one of the most profitable of
crops. The seed itself adds heavily to the
valneof the plant, Thousands of barrels of
seed oil are exported to Europe annually,
which come back to us.refined and flavored,
"pure olive oil." and we use it without sus
pecting the difference.
No better proof of thesnecessof the cotton
industry is needed than in the way English
companies have invested. The Englishman
is cautious as well as enterprising, and when
he sees a guarantee for security he invests
heavily. All through the South corpora
tions with Northern capital are established,
which loan money on farm lands, the per
centage in many rases being terrible; bnt
even wltn tnis tne oontn is esiaoiismng a
good system of credit.
A LONG LIFE OF CREDIT.
Cotton is the money crop of tbe Southern
?lanter, and his life is one of long credit,
he farmer, unless he has been' transported
from the enterprising land of Yankeedom,
relies almost entirely upon the merchant
for everything he eats. Melons and vege
tables will grow by simply "tickling the
soil," yet the Southern farmer does not
seem to'have the nerve or enterprise enough
to grow such supplies, and buys butter,
meal and vegetables from the town or city
There are just three classes in the South
the "gentleman born," the "plain people"
and the neero. The ignorant, superstitious
poor are known as the "Cracker" in the
Carolinas, Georgia and Florida, and in
Mississippi the "political bulldozer." Thev
are, in many instances, tenants- on small
patches of land, paying a heavy rental,
while tbey live on almost nothing corn
bread and corn whisky hunt, swap oxen
and loaf around; while the "weemen folks"
do the farmwork. We find the old planta
tions of hundreds of acres now divided into
small farms, worked on the tenant system,
and the question for the New South is yet
to be settled, "whether we shall have a
Peasantry like that of France or a tenantry
ke that of Ireland."
Cotton, like every other staple, has its
enemies, and the boll worm is perhaps the
worst. The worms pass over the field as. a
conflagration, sometimes destroying an en
tire crop in a few days. Then it is that the
whole cotton world is excited, and telegrams
pass under the sea. Manufacturers and
shipowners ore advised, while in the mean
time THE INSIDIOUS ,WEETCH,
like Shakespeare's worm i' the bnd, feeds
upon the interior of the cotton boll, and
"corners" and "trusts" become a mania; but
tbe danger passes, and still Cotton is King,
while hundreds of speculators have made
The picking season has just passed, when
the true value of the American citizen of
African descent, and his industrial affinity,
the mule, become conspicuously apparent.
No degree of heat affects either. The merry
neero melodies that are wafted across the
cotton fields convince us that the negro, at
least, is not "saddest when he sings," but
make us realize plainly that the negro was
made for the South. The glory of sending
to market the first bale ot cotton is sought
by every large planter.
And now, something more of King Cotton.
It is a Southern paper, certainly, that sug
gests the cotton flower for the national em
blem, and says:

A miner, who is not easily frightened,
told me the other day that he has oftn been
scared by mine "rats. On one occasion he
had a considerable distance to go and he
had to pass through a portion of an old
working. There he encountered about a
dozen rats. They were large and fierce,
and were not a bit startled by
his presence. On the contrary, they
soon Bhowed that they rather liked
hs company.His oil was bnrning low in
his lamp and smelled very strong, and it
was evident that it had a great attraction"
for the hungry rats. They followed close at
his heels, and whenever he hastened his
speed they did the same. His only hope
was in keeping the tiny flame in his lamp
glowing, and he felt that If it was extin
guished by any mishap they would attack
him at once. It was with unspeakable re
lief that he reached his destination before
the last faint flicker of his lamp died out.
- The drippings of the oil cans from which
the miners supply their lamps have a great
fascination for the rats, and sometimes they
lose their lives for it The same miner who
had the adventure just narrated told the
writer that only a few months ago a two
gallon oil can became so literally jammed
with dead rats that it was with considerable
difficulty they could be palled out. The
cover had been left off, and in their eager
ness to get at the oil the rats forced them
selves one tfy one through the narrow neck
of the can, from which they vrere afterward

The first great fall of roof that ever oc
curred in this region was at Carbondale

of the mountain fell in and several lives
were lost Several days before the disaster
the people of the neighborhood were aston
