on the League notices and reserve rule.
claiming they are not legal. The local
players refuse to sign until aiter the League
meeting. President Snalding mates some
admissions regarding the effect of the
Brotherhood. Lexington fall race meeting
opened with good sport.
Yesterday was quite an interesting day
among the local baseball people. President
3simick's anticipations were not realized, as
none of the old players would sign. Ac
cording to the president, Sunday was the
only player asked to sign and he refused to
do k until after the Brotherhood meeting,
which will be held on the 4th of next
month. Mr. Ximick remindel Sunday
of his promise to sign a contract
without hesitation and Sunday re
plied to ths eff ;ct that his promise would just
be as good after November 4 as now. He
added that h ti ill not sign a contract until the
Brotherhood uifliculty Is settled. IJe is a mem
Ixjr of that organization and he means to stick
to it, regardless of all consequences.
Beckley aid not sign, hut after leaving
Klmick's oihee he said that he will certainly
play in the Pittsburg League club next season;
that there will be no .Brotherhood club and that
the entire haziness is a big bluff Hanlonalso
withheld his signature from a contract, as he
also -wishes to see what results from the
Brotherhood and League meeting.
THE CLTJB DISBANDED.
The club has been disbanded for the season
and all the players will be paid off to-day.
Ivone and Beckley left for home last evening
and Sunday will leave to-day. Durins a conver
sation yesterday afternoon, President Jfimicfc
said: "The only player I asked to sign was
Sunday, and I asked him to do so because his
same is not on the reserve list, and he prom
ised to sn when asked. However, the players
can sign when they are ready. If they are not
in a hurry I'm sure I'm not AVe have dis
banded the club because so many of the players
were kicking about not being abl- to get horns
as soon as they ihed. I think that a sufficient
number mil remain to play at Sir. Phillips'
benefit on Thursday. If they don't it will be a
treat shame. I am certain that all ofonr
plajers will be ready to sign with us just as
'soon as we are anxious for them."
The following notice was served on each
plat er early yesterday morning:
"sic Yon will please tale notice that
hereby exercises Its option for the employ
ment of jour services under and pursu to the
provisions of paragraph 18, of a certain contract
heretofore made with you, and bearing date on or
About October, 1S8S. and doej hereby now employ
yon under the provisions of said contract, and re
tain your services for the season or 189J, and is
ow ready and offers to execute the agreement
: therefor. Allkcue:. T Kaseball CLrn,
Ter A. K. Scaxdbett."
XOT A BIT ALARMED.
The players were not a bit alarmed at it,
although it presnmed to tell them that they
were legally bound to play nowhere else next
j ear except in Pittsburg. Speaking of the
notice. Mr. Nimick said "1 think it will hold
all of our men, but, of course, the proof of the
pudding is in the catinc of it. Of course a
notice of that kind has not been issued without
due consideration of the matter."
The notice, however, Is generally considered
worthless as it is an attempt tn legalize the
reserve rule, and lawyers state that that rule
Is entirely illecal. It is uuderstood that the
notices came from Mr. Day, of Xew York, and
not from President Young. However, the
local officials have much faith in the statement
of Uccklej They believe that when Jake
says there is more bluff than business in the
Brotherhood thrjats he is telling the truth. It
is a fact, nevertheless, that the players gener
ally tpeakm;: will decline to sign until their
difirenres ith the League are remedied or
modified. This notion has been enforced time
and time again in thi3 paper, and why
Mr. Nimick or any other League official should
expert "tnerwise is hard to tell.
P. J. Daniels, of Louisville, has been firmed

BEriJESENTATrVX robison's opikion.
There was considerable discussion last c m
ing regarding the legal merits of the notice
Issued by the local club to the plajers. llepre
sentative Robison, a prominent lawyer, gave a
lengthy opinion on the matter. He said: "The
notice is worthless, because by law the League,
or whatever it is, cannot prevent a plater
at the eLd of the season from joining
another clnb Of course the League can refuse
to play againt any club of which the player in
question may be a member, but that is all that
it can do. The reserve rnle will not hold water
in a court of Ian, and I am of opinion that per
sons who meet and concoct plans by which a
player or players can be prevented from
earning a livelihood by plaving ball
can be Indicted for conspiracy. The law of
conspiracy in this State is very plain and em
phatic, and it is conspiracy on the part of three
or more persons who combine to prevent a man
from obtMninc employment. The reserve rule,
as I understand it, is no more solid than was
the contract of Blind Tom. He sicned a
contract for life to play for $15 per
month and his board and traveling
expenses. The courts in New York,
however, soon knocked that contract on the
head. The persons ho by the contract owned
his services were getting fat ana rich on his
work, and ho was almost starving. The League
magnates are in a similar position. They are
making money and presume to keep players
where they want them just as long as thevplay
balk If the players desire to better their" posi
tioir by embarking in a club of their own
they are prevented by the reserve rule.
The law will not tolerate tins. Certainly
the players can Iegallygo where they choose as
soon as their contract proper expires There
can be a perpetual contract, of coarse, but even
if the reserve rule vas construed to be this the
.players have the best ot it, because no contract
Is binding if either party has violated it. I un
derstand that the League has violated the
Brotherhood contract in more ways than one,
''and this entirely kills any claim or plea that
the Lcacue could urge in a court of law. It is,
therefore, clear to me that in any case the
players have a safe course to purine."
Arrangements for the Phillips bene5t at
Recreation Park on Thursday are completed.
The Great 'Western Band has volunteered its
services for the occasion, and will give a prome
nade concert on the grounds previous to the
game. A sufficient number of Pittsburg play
ers will remain in the city to make a tcry
strong team. The picked nine are all right.

Grounds for Three Years A
Clnb nt !prlnKfic)d.
Chicago, October 2L This is the day when
the men who are going to play ball with tho
Leagne clubs next season should sign the con
tracts. Mr. Spalding. President of the Chicago
club, was at headquarters early to receive
them, but, at 3 o'clock. Captain Anson's name
was the only one put down.
MI cannot say when the rest will sign," said
Mr. Spalding, "as 1 have only talked with three
orfoor of them."
"What new players ao you expect to get?"
"I am not prepared to answer that."
"What do you think of the proposed Baseball
Players' Brotherhood! Do you think it will
"Well, I don't know anything about it. The
players whose names have been mentioned in
connection with it deny the rumors which have
been circulating and those outside 'who have
been reported to be in the scheme disavow any
knowledge of it. All I know about it is what I
have seen in the papers."
"If the Brotherhood were formed would it
seriously affect the Leaguer"
"It would affect the League, certainly," said
Mr. Spalding, "but how seriously time alone
could telL However, the League would go
right on introducing new ula ers instead of the
old ones, if it should come to that."
"What steps, if any, have been taken for
fightinc the Brotherhood T"
"I don't know that any step has been taken
in tint direction, nor do 1 know what steps are
likely to be taken. We must first find out that
there is a Brotherhood before we go to fight
"A morning paper has printed a storv to tho
effect that the leaders in this alleged Brother
hood scheme am to be reserved at tne salary
limit and kept on the bench until they have
been forcotteu and lost sight of among the
great players of the past,' what is there in
that Mr. Spaldingf
"Nothing. It is a pure fiction."
"How about the new League grounds!"
"We're going to keep the old grounds.
"We've re-leased them for three years. Wo
had intended keeping them only a year longer,
but the Brotherhood began bidding for them
and we had to take a lease for three years."
'Then there is a Brotherhood after allT"
"Well, yes; it would seem so."
"And its bidding against you for the old
grounds forced you to renew your lease for a
longer time than you had intended?"
"Yes. I sunpose it was the Brotherhood who
ran tho price up on us."
At Springfield to-day a baseball organization
called "The Chicagos ' was incorporated, with
H. V. Donovan and Laurence T. Knnis among
the prominent promoters of the scheme It is
be'ieved that this has something to do with the
proposed Brotherhood club.
"I cannot say anMhing about tho matter
now," declared Mr. Lnms this afternoon. "I
am merely the attorney of tho men behind the
scheme. The directors will probably meet very
soon, and will then be ready to make a state
ment to the public."

THE KID RULED OFF.
St. Joe's Pugilist nd n Friend Get Into
Cincinnati, October 2L The directors of
the Latonia Jockey Club have rnled Lemuel
McGregor, otherwise known in sporting circles
as the "St. Joe Kid," and Otto Roth, another
turf follower, off the Latonia course. This
action has been taken in consequence of an oc
currence Saturday afternoon. It appears that
the two in question had invested in a bet on
Clamor in a race in which that horse was
beaten. After the racothe name of Clamor
was erased from the ticket and that of Cams

The London Referee gives the following ac
count of the mile race between Damn and
Cnmmings for the championship on October 6:
"This contest, which was decided at Queen's
Ground this (Saturday) afternoon, was natur
ally expected to prodnce an exciting struggle,
but. contrary to expectations, the race was one
of the tamest af hairs ever w ltnessed, being vory
disappointing to the public, and utterly un
w orthy the name of a championship race. Tho
weather, though dull and hazy, was free from
rain, and with tho path iu grand going order it
was anticipated that this winner would do 4
minutes 2U seconds or better. About 4,000 spec
tators t ere present, and a moderate amount of
bettiug look place. At first evenmonev was
bet, but before the pair went to their marks at
a quarter to 5 there were plenty of offers to lay
2 to 1 on Cnmmings. In order to cover one mile
the peds had to traverse three laps of the
coun-e (which is 498 vards in circumference)
and2T2ards. When the pistol was fired, Dar
riu, on the inside, at once went to the front,
Cummlngs being seemingly contented to run
about two yards in the rear of the Shcfficlder.
Tho pace shown by the men in the early part of
tho race was so slow that it was quite plain the
race '.as going to be a very slow run one, and
Damn passed the quarter-mile marktwo yards
in front of the bcotchman, the watch denoting
1 minute 9 second-. A similar rate of progres
sion was shown in the second quarter-mile
Darrin leading at half a mile by a vard, the
time being 2 minutes 13J seconds. Damn re
tained a yard advantage until a furlone from
the finish, when he started to sprint, and in the
next 40 j ards placed a gap of 6 vards between
himself aud Cnmmtuss and then, when going
strong and w ell. Damn's left shoe burst on the
inside, which threw him down; and, going on,
Cnmmings finished alone in 4 minutes 39 3-5
seconds. As soon as Damn fell, tho central
portion of the inclosnre was invaded by a crowd
of spectators, who were appeased when they
saw tho state of Damn's running shoe."

THE PILOT K0T TO BLAME.
A Piece of Iron the Causo of the Terrible
Cincinnati, October 21. At the
Coroner's .inquest to-day, expert testimony
was taken as to the reason the Pilot, Charles
Gable, at the Jlount Auburn Inclined
Plane, last Thursday, was unable by the
use of his brakes and levers to shut off the
steam and stop the working of the engine,
in consequence of .which a car was dashed
to pieces, killing instantly five of the eight
passengers. The gist of the report of the
official engineers was that the primary
cause of the accident was that a small bit of
iron, not more than half an inch long and a
quarter of an inch wide, had become de
tached from part of the steam pipe and at
the fatal moment was blown by the steam
into the cutoff valve, causing the frightful
George Yonng, an expert engineer from
Ifewport, who examined the machinery on
the day after the accident, showed where the
fatal piece of iron had become detached, and
also exhibited u second piece of iron which
exactly fitted into the fracture of the piece
found in the steam valve, thus showing, as
the witness thinks, that the piece originally
entangled in the steam valve was longer
than the fragment found there, and that it
had been broken in Pilot Gable's efforts to
shut off the steam. The testimony thus lar
completely exonerates Pilot Gable from

Among those who spoke, in addition to L.
D. Strauss, the principjfr talker for this
neighborhood, was K. Brown, the Gen
eral Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. He spoke
of the general work at New Castle, and of
the enthusiasm which had been inculcated
into the young men of the period. He de
clared his opinion, as the result of a dozen
years of study, that those who started wrong,
ended wrong. Mr. Brown said that he felt
the onus of his work in a great city, and
had been awakened to it during the last few
months of 'his labors in Pittsburg. Here
turned, he said, with a renewed determina
tion to awaken the young men of this city to
the fact that their Savior was living and
awaiting their call to him for salvation.
Mr. Brown said that he believed the meet
ing in New Castle had been prolific of re
sults, and that it would be shown in the
next three months of the association's work.

A Del. Trem. Prisoner Made It Lively at
Central Station Yesterday.
"William Rankin was arrested yesterday
afternoon and placed in a cell in Central
station. He had been acting peculiarly,
but no attention was paid him until an un
earthly series of yells was emitted by him.
The turnkey ran to the cell. There stood
Bankin with a long-bladed pocket knife
thrusting at imaginaryfoes, evidently in the
throes ot jim jams. No persuasion
could induce Rankin to give up the
knife. He took the turnkey for an enemy
and tried to stab him through the bars. The
officers worked tiro hours and finally opened
the cell door. But Bankin wonld not come
out to be caught. An effort was made with
tongs to get the knife but failed. Finally
Br. Moyer got him quieted and coaxed him
out. Detectives Coulson and Fitzgerald se
cured the knife, and after a lively struggle
Rankin was insinuated into a straight
jacket. He was taken to jail and put in a
padded cell, so ne couldn't injure himself.

and Newspaper Man in St. Louis,

An Unsuccessful Journalistic Venture and
TD.J2 CAUSE OF THE HORRIBLE CRIME.
The Victim the Chief Fignre in numerous Matri
Frank J. Bowman, a former lawyer and
newspaper man of St. Louis, was shot and
instantly killed yesterday by B. M. Cham
bers. The trouble grew out of business dif
ferences and an attempt on the part of Bow
man to attach Chambers' property.
St. Louis, October 21. Frank J. Bow
man, the well-known lawyer, who has fig
ured in so many matrimonial troubles here
and in Chicago, was shot and instantly
tilled by B. M. Chambers, this afternoon,
at Ferguson, Mo. The killing grew out of
the trouble between the parties over the old
Times newspaper. Chambers was a large
stockholder and principal owner of the
paper up to the time of its demise. Bow
man was also financially interested in it.
He bought, among other things, the Asso
ciated Press franchise of the paper, and has
been in litigation over the matter with
Chambers ever since.
Thisrarternoon Bowman, accompanied by
Deputy Sheriff Garrett, or St. Louis county,
called at Mr. Chambers' home in Ferguson,
Mo., about 18 miles west of St. Louis. His
TO LEVT AN ATTACHMENT
on Chambers' life interest in his wife's
estate, or whatever property he might be
able to find. Chambers met Bowman and
Garrett at the gate. Bowman said: "I have
come to levy on your property."
"All right," responded Mr. Chambers,
and he entered the house.
Deputy Sheriff Garrett afterward ex
plained that he thought Mr. Chambers had
gone to get some papers. He was mistaken,
for, in a few minutes, Chambers stepped
out into the yard with a double-barreled
shotgun in his hands. "Garrett, you get
out of thii place, and get out quick," he
said. Garrett walked away.
"Now, Bowman, I'll give yon three min
utes to get out of these grounds,"'continued
Bowman did not move, and in an instant
Chambers raised his gun and poured the
load into Bowman's heart. The men were
close together and the full load took effect
in the chest
THE SHOT? INSTANTLY FATAL.
Bowman fell dead. Chambers walked coolly
into the house, and, at 430 p. m., he was
still there awaiting arrest, while Bowman's
body lay in a pool of blood in the yard, no
body venturing to touch it, as the Coroner had
not yet arrived. A large crowd surrounded
the place, but there was no demonstration.
Bowman was one of the best known men
in St. Louis, although bis reputation wa3
somewhat unsavory. He practiced law here
for many years, and about three years ago
removed to New York. Previous to his de
parture he figured in a couple ot scandals.
He sued his wife for divorce, and afterward
compromised her suit on a cross bill, pay
ing her a large sum of money. Shortly after
ward it was given out that he had married
a woman in the East.
