Brooklyn, October 28. The New
Yorks took a commanding lead in the
world's series to-day by winning their fifth
victory. The record now stands: If ew York
won 5, lost 3; Brooklyn won 3, lost 5.
"When it was made known that
"Pitcher Terry would officiate for the
Grooms in the game against the world's
champions, every Brooklynite who had any
interest In baseball made up his mind that
the New Yorks woald not have an easy
time of it, but just how hard Terry made
them work is shown by the score. There was
no little doubt as to the game being played
during the early hours of the day, and the
crowd on that' account was smalL Of the
2,584 spectators probably not more than 100
were ifew Yorkers and as a consequence
the long lead that the New Yorks secured in
the opening innings took all the interest out of
the game and beyond a cheer now and then
overalonjr hit or a fine clay everything was
CXCLOXE CRAKE "WAS THERE.
Cyclone Crane was again in the box for the
visitors, and asusnal they seemed helpless in
the way of finding his curves. Now and again
they cot in a hit off Crane, and usually at the
riRht time, but their hits were so few and scat
tered that they had to make all they conld ont
of each one they got Crane was not nearly so
wild as he was on Saturday and was able to get
his rifle-shot curves over the plate with remark
able regularity. Terry was wholly ineffective
against ihe Giants, and his work was in no
comparison to that on Friday. In the very first
Inning the big League hitters opened on him
with a beautiful streak of hitting, which en
abled them to score five runs.
KNOCKED TERRY OUT.
This sort of thing was kept up until the end
of the fourth inning, when the Adonis of the
Brooklyn club gave way to Dave Foutz, and the
Xonner went over to cover first base. This move
was just what Foctz was longing for. for he
wanted a chance to pitch against the New
Yorks, and he now knows that he cannot make
such a bnlliantshowingasbecould have wished
f or, still he did much better than Terry, for the
If ew Yorks only scored four runs off him. Foutz
was hit hard in the sixth inning, but be did good
work after that. He bad good command of the
ball, and used good judgment in bis work. The
fielding errors ou either side were even, but, as
three of the errors were wild throws by Visner,
it shows that the work of the home team, out
side of that by this player, was well done.
Collins, Smith' and"1 Pinkney all made fine
pickups and throws, and the outfielders as
sisted in holding down the runs bv several fine
catches, but tbey could not prevent the hitting
by the League champions, who smashed the
ball in every direction with remarkable
strength. Although the errors of the New
Yorks were costly they did not interfere with
the New Yorks winning the came. In the last
inninc Richardson had a chance to retire the
side. Wben Whitney threw a grounder over
to force Corkhill to second, Dannv, however,
failed to hold the ball, and then O Brien fol
lowed with a three-base hit to left center, and
two runs were scored. The clever Captain also
scored because Ewing refused to come up un
der the bat. In the eighth inning Crane was
responsible for the Brooklyns' two runs, ior he
gave a base on balls and Burns followed with a
three-base hit, and scored on a fumble by Ward
of the throw in.
A TRETTY HOME EUJT.
In the first inning Foutz pounded out a
pretty home run, with one man on the bases.
It was a remarkably long drive down to the
Fourth avenue gate, and he crossed the plate
before Tiernan got down to the ball. That the
New Yorks were out for the game was shown
in the first inning, for it has been a long day
since such pretty hitting has been seen. Five
neat hits were the snm total of the hitting,
bat it gave five runs, just enough to show that
It was not Terry's day for pitching. After this
the New Yorks had the required confidence,
and they pounded the ball for keeps.
Ward" led the run getting for the League
champions with three bits, on which he scored
four runs, and only bad credit with being three
times at the bat. Connor also made three hits.
Tiernan received credit for a home run when
be lost the ball among the carriages in the
sixth. It became cold and dreary during the
latter part of the game, and when the last out
was accomplished they went home. To-morrow
the clubs will play' on the Polo grounds, and
there is more than a chance that this will be
the last and deciding game.

(.."The Boston Schemer Not in a Hurry for
Boston, October 28. The report that ap
peared in the Herald of Saturday morning, of
the meeting held on Friday afternoon by the
gentlemen interested in the proposed new pro
fessional baseball club in this city, known as a
1 part of the Brotherhood scheme, created some
surprise among those who attended the con
ference, so confident were they that they had
so covered their movements that by no possible
means could their proceedings be known to
newspaper men. No dentals have reached the
baseball editor of the Herald, that the meeting
was held oi" that the report of its proceedings
was incorrect; consequently, it may be assumed
that the report was correct.
One result of the meeting is that yesterday
John F. Morrill, agent for the gentlemen inter
ested In the scheme, sought and obtained a.60
days' refusal of a lot of land on H.untincton
avenue, which it is proposed to convert into a
baseball park. A two weeks' refusal of the
land bad previously been obtained, but at the
conference of Friday information was im
parted that led the members thereof to believe
that everything was not perfectly plain sailing,
and wonla not be nntil after the League ineet
inc in November, and it was deemed best to
secure a refusal of CO days longer, and this has
The Brotherhood wire-pullers were pretty
active yesterday, as both Jiew York and
Chicago sent out the same dispatch. It was to
the effect that the day of leueaing U past, and J
that the players have definitely determined to
have a league of their own. It this is .true,
Messrs. Ward. Keefe and Pfeffer have simplv
beetf telling the pnbllo. deliberate lies. 'But if
the dispatches are true, it is strange that John
Morrill has postponed leasing any- grounds at
Boston for the new organization until after the
League meeting; Truly, this Brotherhood busi
ness is very. ery funny, at least the people
alleged to be connected with it are making
Something Abont the Pnrflist Who Cnt
Shea's Throat Last Saturday.,
Tommy Kelly, the man who took a prominent
part in the row at Boston on Saturday with
which Sullivan was connected, is well known
to the sporting men of this city. Kelly will be
remembered as one of the men who seconded
Sullivan in his contest with Frank Herald in
the Coliseum, Allegheny, some time ago.
Abont 12 or 15 years ago Kelly was a prominent
lightweight pugilist in this country. Speaking
of him yesterday, a local sporting man said: '
"I seconded Sam Collyer against him in an
interesting battle, which lasted 1 hour and 41
minutes. Tbey fought 125 rounds, and Collyer
won. The rinc was pitched three times that
day. and the fight ultimately took
place on the borders of Maryland.
Kelly's backers soon discovered that
their man couldn't defeat Collyer, and they
urged him to keep out of the way and prolong
the battle until darkness set in. Hewas doing
this by dropping down without punishment.
Just as it was almost too dark to fight, Collyer
lorced him to the ropes, when he (Kelly)
dropped to his hands and knees. Collyer
turned to walk to his corner. Kelly sprang
np and was rashing in behind Collyer to knock
him down, wben I shouted to Collyer. The lat
ter turned quickly round and threw his left
arm around Kelly's neck, holding him there
until be battered Kelly's face almost to pieces.
That ended the battle in Collver's favor. I
need not say that Colbert, Kelly's backer,
cursed bim cood and strong for not entirely
keeping out of the way. Bad he done so, the
fight wonid have been declared a draw in two
more rounds. Kelly was a game mau. but far
from a first-class fighter. Subsequently he
was mixed up in some questionable transac
tions, and left New York to reside in Boston."
Kelly's victim. Shea, is in a dying condition,
and it is likely that the former will be charged
A TUEFMAN SHOT.
Edward BInnt, the Raco Horse Owucr, Id
Washegton, October 2S. Mr. Edward
Bitint, a well-known lawyer, a gentleman
steeplechaser, and owner of Seymour, St
Swithin and other race horses, was shot and
seriously wounded abont 4 o'clock this morning
in the Shoemaker wine room by George Mantz,
formerly proprietor of a notorious saloon in
this city, but now a political worker in Mary
land. The men met In the saloon by chance,
and Mantz called Blunt away from his com
panions to the rear of the store. Here an alter
cation arose, and when the attention of those
in the front part. of the place was attracted by
the disturbance, they beheld Blunt retreating,
with a large pocket knife in bis band, Mantz
following him np. Blunt's friends interposed,
and induced him to leave the place. As they
were going out. Blunt glanced back and saw
that Mantz was still close to him. He told
Mantz that, if attacked, be would use the knife,
and the next instant Mantz had drawn a re
volver and becan firing. One 6bot took effect
in Blunt's right hip and another in his side.
The wounds are serious, but Blunt in a few
hours was well enough to be conveyed to his
home. Mantz asserts that Blunt was advancing
on him with tho knife when he fired. Blunt
comes of a well-known Maryland family, and
has a good reputation.
ROSS AND LEE.
The Two Scnllera Return and Talk Abont
New York, October 2S. George Lee and
Wallace Boss, the two well-known professional
oarsmen, arrived yesterday from England
where they have been for several months.
They did not have a very active campaign
while away, owing somewhat to the Searle
O'Connor match for the championship of the
world. Several minor races in which they com
peted were fairly satisfactory to them. Bow.
ing in England in both professional and ama
teur ranks has been most active during the
past season, and even at this date there is no
scarcity of matches, but Lee and Boss did not
seem to care abont them, but were satisfied to
do a share of looking on.
The prominent English sporting journals
have discussed the merits of these two men as
compared with the native talent with much
freedom, and many men in rowing circles here
are of the opinion that Lee and Boss are too
well known to find matches waiting for them.
They have no special plans for the future.
ABOUT GEORGE STEADMAN.
The Enclish Wrestler Deficient In American
Styles of Wrestling.
The report tbat George Steadman, the En
gl:h wrestler, is coming to, this country is once
more current. Steadman has held the cham
pionship, Cumberland and Westmoreland style
of wrestling, for nearly 15 years. He succeeded
to the title wben Jameson and Wright were
barred in all the sports because of their supe
riority. He, however, threw Wright in an ex
citing contest at Carlisle, and from that time
on has held premier position. He has at occa
sional times been defeated. William Blair, a
young man, threw him once in the all-weights'
contest. If he visits this country he will likely
be accompanied by Lowden, another heavy
weight wrestler of the Cumberland and West
Steadman, however, has never proven him
self formidable either as a catch-as-catch-can
or any other stylo that is popular in America.
Should become to this country he will get
plenty of matches which may not be successful
for him If they are on the square. He is too
old to learn, and probably, like Wannop, will
fall an easv victim when a vigorous young
champion like Lewis gets hold of him.
BRESLIN IS AFRAID.
He Refuses) to Fnce Charley McCarthy In
New York, October28.-CaptainMikeBoyle
sent an invitation to Mike Breslin to visit the
Knickerbocker Garden fora contest with Char
ley McCarthy, the Philadelphia lightweight
Breslin went over to Hoboken on Saturday
night, accompanied by bla backer and a party
of friends, but refused to go on with McCarthy.
Mr. Boyle offered him $25 if be could stand
three rounds before the Quaker City lad, and
even at this inducement he declined. His
backer said tbat he would match bim against
Charley for 52,000 or 52,600 a side, but not less
than the former amount.
To a reporter Boyle said: "Fll give Breslin
$25 it he stands for three rounds in front of
McCarthy, while Mac will have one band tied
behind his back. Now, if this fellow is a
fighter, let him come over and show it, because
he will be a dead cock in the pit If be backs
ont It's a shame tbat he should do so much
talking and such littlereal fighting. McCarthy
will be here all week, and he will have a good
chance to accept this offer."

ADTAKCE IN WINDOW GLASS.
Manufacturers Sleet and Raise tho Price
Five Per Cent.
The Pittsburg "Window Glass Manufactur
ers' Association held its weekly meeting
yesterday. The present position of the
trade was fully discussed, and it was finally
decided, in view of several contingencies
that had arisen, to advance the price an ad
ditional 5 per. cent Messrs. Chambers &
McKee were not represented, but it was un
derstood they acquiesced in the advance.
Among other reasons given for the advance
was the fact that there was an increase in
the price of chemicals used in the manu
facture, of 14. The discounts which now
rule are 80 and 10 per cent off double
strength, SO and 5 off single, for carloads.
For less than carloads 80 off double strength
and 75, 10 and 10 off single glass.
A manufacturer said'last night that the
increase in price was made in conformity
with the scale issued by Chambers & McKee
on the 10th of October. No additional ad
vance had been proposed by that firm since.
Their prices then were: For .five car lots or
over, single. 80 and 10 per cent off; for
double, 80 and 15 per cent. For carload
orders or less, single, 80 and 5; double, 80
and 10. The conditions pi trade were never
better for an advance in the price of glass

glass are 75 and 5 and 75 aud 10, according
CO-OPERATE COAL C0MPANI.
The Scheme Proposed by Mellon nnd Corey nt
the Buffalo Mines.
Mellon and Corey, who recently purchased
the old Buffalo mines on the Pittsburg, Vir
ginia and Charleston Bailroad, are adver
tising for miners to iorm a co-operative coal
company. They propdse to form the com
pany on a sliding scale of wages which, to
all intents and purposes, makes the miner a
sharer in the profits without his being liable
for losses from bad management, etc. Tbey
say by this plan they will insure steady
Work and good wages and avoid loss to both
the miners and company from strikes and
lockouts. They also propose in case the
miners desire it, to start a co-operative com
pany store and make the capital stock so
that the 50 miners included in the co-operative
or sliding scale can own one share each
in the store. In order that the miner with
out capital may be able to buy a share of the
stock in store, they will let 'him subscribe
for the amount or' stock and pay for the same
by retaining 10 per cent of his wages until
the stock is paid for.
IT WAS INFANTICIDE.
The Baby Foand at the East End Was
Magistrate Hyndman last night field an
inquest on the body of the infant found in
the barn of .Henry McCollough, East End,
on Sunday night Dr. P. D. Perchment,
who held a post mortem on the remains,
testified that the child had been born alive.
Mrs. Sarah Kobinson and her daughter
Lena testified that Annie Duncan, the sup
posed mother, had been to their house and
that she bore evidence of the, fact that she
was about to become a mother. Mrs. Kobin
son also testified to having taken the girl to
the West Penn Hospital, but they would
not keep her, as she had no money. The
jury returned a verdict of infanticide.
Annie Dnncan, the supposed mother, has
not yet been arrested and the police are still
searching for her.

ISFXCTAL-TELEOILAX TO THE DISPATCH.
"Washington, October 28. General
Mahone and Judge "Waddlll, of Virginia,
ma ie literally a flying visit to the city to
day. The two distinguished gentlemen ar
rived by rail from Petersburg, jumped into
a coupe, drove to the Treasury-Department,
then to the Postof&ce Department, then to
Colonel "W. "W. Dudley's office, and there
brought up for a time. They were joined
by Assistant Postmaster General Clarkson
and other friends of -Mahone and Virginia
Bepublicans. The conference at Colonel
Dudley's continued' for an hour or two, and
then the Virginians skipped out again for
the Old Dominion. General Mahone conld
stop for ordinary people and newspapermen
only long enough to say that he would
carry Virginia by 10,000 majority,, and that
anybody who wanted to sport successfully
must play him for a winner.
It is understood that the conference to
day was in regard to the best method of
performing the concluding tricks of the
campaign. Mahone seems to think that the
little he doesn't know about such matters
can be learned from Clarkson and Dudley.
It is said that Mahone urged upon the two
"Western managers that the Administration
ought to show its hand a little more con
spicuously in the campaign and that the
eminent political counselors agreed with
him. On the other side, the Democrats
seem to have plucked up heart. Tbey had
been feeling very blue for a week, but
something has stirred them tonewliope
probably the returns of a canvass of the
State in DemoCratio interest, which seems
to indicate a majority of 20,000 for McKin
ney.for Governor. ,
Senator John S. Barbour repels indigo
nantly tbe widely published report that he
had practically abandoned hope of carrying
the State against .Mahone. "The Demo
cratic outlook was never brighter," he said
to-day. "and the state of the campaign was
never in better condition then it is now."
Ex-Senator Lewis, of Virginia, who was iu
the city to-day, is equally confident Mahone
will be defeated. He says the' Democratic
majority will be 30,000 to 60.000. He has
always voted the Bepublican ticket, but

BlCHMOND, October 28. The feature this

in tbe black counties, given by the white
farmers to their former slaves. This scheme
was worked iu the Fitzhngh Lee campaign,
and the Democrats made great gains in
the black counties by it At these
barbecues there is no oratory, but the
whites do a great deal of quiet talking and
make a good many conversions irom the

TOO MUCH FIGHTING GOING 05.
Why Ex-Prcsldoot Cleveland Declines to
Preside nt n Mass Meeting.
ISTXC1.U. TELEOBAH TO TUB DISFATCB.1
C New York, October 28. Tbe Democratic
mass meeting in the Academy of Music in
Brooklyn on Friday night, at which Gov
ernor Hill is to be the principal speaker,
will not be presided over- ty ex-President
Cleveland, as was expected. A couple,
of weeks ago Chairman, Kcnna, of the
campaign committee, and ex-S.enator
Murtha called on Mr. Cleveland and in
vited him to preside. Mr. "Cleveland
said nothing would give him greater
pleasure, but asked them to excuse
him from giving them a, final answer
nntil later. Within a couple of
days another visit ' was paid to
him by one of the Brooklyn campaign man
agers. Mr. Cleveland informed him that he
would have to decline the invitation, pro
mising at the same time to write a letttr to
be read at the meeting. One of tbe managers
at the Willoughby street headquarters said
to-night to,a Dispatch reporter:'
"Mr. Cleveland regrets very much that
circumstances are such that he cannot come
over here to preside at the Academy meet
ing. He had been already invited to pre
side at meetings of the Tammany Hall and
of the County Democracy, and in view, I
suppose, of the factional fight going on,
he thought it more judicious to decline
both invitations. In consequence of 'these
declinations he did not-like to come to
Brooklyn; as such action on his part might
appear discourteous to tbe NwYork organ
izations. At least, I have no doubt that was
his reason for declining. His letter has not
yet been received."

A Conductor's Experience In a Sleeping Car
With a Passenger.
"A sleeping car conductor sees some of
the most ludicrous as well as pathetic sights
to be found anywhere," said a Pullman
official who had risen from the ranks. "I re
member when I ran from, New York io Chi
cago, and if I get blue I conjure up the
funny incidents of my experience on the
road. The newly married couple with their
ludicrous endearments I mean ludicrous

being a married man myself of course I

A middle-aged woman, accompanied by a
boy, boarded the train at Harrisbnrg and,
unluckily for them, they both held upper
berth checks. Neither had ever been in a
sleeper belore, and when night came on the
woman began a diligent search of the car.
The porter asked her if she had lost any
thing, and she gave him. a negative answer.
He at last became frightened and came to
me. thinking her crazy. When I asked her
what was (he matter she said, 'Nothing; but
I am looking for the bedroom.' I told her
there was no regular bedroom, but would
have their berths made up. She watched
the porter intently and when finished I told
her they were ready; 'Are those them?' she
said, 'why do you think I sleep on a shell?
Those, things are not beds, why I can't un
dress. Young man, you are a swindler to
ask me to pay tor the privilege of sleeping
on the upper shelf in that cupboard. Many
of the passengers were convulsed with

A Dastardly Attempt at Assassination Caused All of
Intelligence from Lincoln county, West
"Virginia, is to the effect that.more trouble
will follow the double lynching of the other
night Friends of both parties are in arms
and blood is expected to flow at any time.
WHEEtiNO,Octojber28. Lincoln county,
or at least that part of it around tbe county
seat, is now in a ferment of excitement con
cerning the fearful tragedy enacted within
the borders of the county Thursday.night
There is quite a degree of interest mani
fested to get accurate details of
the double killing at Green Shoals
on the above night Intelligence from that
section is meager, butenough is known to
satisfy the most credulous that Green,
McCoy and Milt Haley were riddled with
bullets on the night in question by an or-,
ganized force numbering 60 determined
The latest report direct, and from a re
liable man, is to the eflect that McCoy and
Haley implicated other prominent parties
in the Brumfield tragedy, alleging
that they were hired to kill
Little Al Brumfield, his wife and Paris
Brumfield, and that they received- $500, or
were to when the job was completed. The
attempt on "Little Al" and his wife is' well
known, and the reason thit the programme
was not fully carried out was because the
Brumfields were too
t " i
HOT .on the tracks
of the assassins. The report further says
that the result of these disclosures has
brought about open hostilities, and
that the entire district is arrayed
either on one side or the other,
The aspect is most threatening. What the
result will be no man can tell, as both sides
are known to be composed of desperate and
A more hospitable, generous people never
existed. Strong in friendship until they'
believe they have been ill treated, and then
bitter in their hatred. The present trouble
has grown out of a long-standing
feud. Headers of these dis
patches have been kept pretty well
posted as to the several difficulties between
Pans Brumfield. and Qre&n McCoy. McCoy
came from Kentucky some years back, and
is a member of the now famous McCoy fam
ily of Pike county, Ky. "Whether he has
ever taken active part in tbe Hatfield
McCoy feud is not known. At
any rate he was regarded as a desperate and
dangerous man. Haley has been about
Hart's Creek several years, and was re
garded as a man capable of any crime.
He married a daughter of a reputable
family several years ago, but on account
of his worthlessness he was comnclled to
leave them, since which time he has led a
very disreputable life. It is. said that sev
eral years ago lie "done" a man in Boone
county named Aiacin. Me ana McCoy
and latterly had been much together. The
fatal Sunday evening, the 27th of Septem-'
ber, with no-suspicion of danger, "Little

on the same horse from the house' of
Henderson Dingess, the father of, Mrs.
Brumfield: At a' narrow defile in

fired on from nearby. Mrs. Brumfield's face
was literally torn to pieces, and thongh stilt

Mr. Brumfield returned with help and car

picion at once fastened on McCoy and Haley,
and early the next day they 'left for Ken
tucky, going to Marlin county. In the mean
time Al Brumfield and his friends were not
inactive. Like bloodhounds they were on
the track. They offered $200 for the two
men, dead or alive. This was a sufficient
incentive for the Kentnckians, and
the result was McCoy and Haley
