iCORED THE LEAGUE
Magnates Charged With Yery
IED HAKION'S PLAIN WORDS
Baltimore and Washington Clubs
SOME LOCAL SPORTS DISAPPOINTED
The California Club Doesn't Want Mc
Caffrey and Sullivan.
'GENERAL SP0ET1XG NEWS OF THE DAI
Ed Hanlon makes some very plain state
ments about the National League, charging
the magnates with trying to ruin the Asso
ciation. President If imick says a few words
in reply. Baltimore and Washington clubs
Ed Hanlon, the local manager of the
Brotherhood of Ball Players in this city,
talked very plainly on the situation last
evening. He is indignant about so many
false rumors being circulated throughout
the country regarding the proposed Players'
League. He said:
"Let me emphatically say that there is no
truth in the stories to the effect that 20
League players have signed with their old
clubs. If this were true and if the Brotner
hood is all a fake, why are the League mag
nates busying themselves in getting so many
new players? This needs some explanation
as to me it means that they either do not be
lieve their own statements or else they are
very stupid men. The Brotherhood is all
right, and I state nht here that we'll be pre
pared for anything that the League may do to
injure or rum our enterprise.
HE SCORES THE LEAGUE.
"But I desire to draw attention to the action
of the League in admitting Brooklyn and Cin
cinnati clubs to the League ranks. That
move was made to wreck the Association, and
shows that the League magnates have no sense
ot fair play when their interests are at stake.
The Association Las just cause to act in any
way now to protect itself. It has almost been
ruined by the unjust scheming of the National
League, which wants, as it has always de
sired to do, to rnle the entire roost. I think
the American public will now see how much
truth there is in the League's boasting of hon
estly and fair dealing. The League's move to
kill the Association will recoil on itself. And
certainly the League has secured a most gen
erous man in President Bjrne. Why, he'll
wreck the whole affair. He is for Byrne first,
last and all the time. We all know him.
"Regarding the Brotherhood prospects here
I can say that we are going along all right.
MAY ORGANIZE TO-JflGHT.
"We may hold a meetinc to-morrow night, and
we'll soon organize a club here. As soon as we
organize 1 will have the names of six of our
best players on contracts, and the entire team
will soon follow suit. Don't let anybody be
despondent about as, because we will be on
deck. Anybody who knows Pittsburg at all
knows that it is one of the best baseball cities
in the country, and that means that the club
we'll put in the field will be a. profitable one."
"Do you think that the Brotherhood and the
American Association will amalgamate?''
"Well, now I cannot express an opinion on
thai question at present. We will have to hold
a meeting before anything definite can be said
on that point. There are very many things to
be considered in connection with it. However,
1 am of opinion that if the two were to join
forces ana make a ten-club league we would at
once knock the old League sky high. After the
League has made such an effort to wreck the
Association, I don't think that public sympathy
Ehunld be withheld from us any longer."
XIMICK'S SIDE OF IT.
President Nimick also talked matters over:
He said: "It is certainly intended to have a
ten-dub league in our organization All tbe ten
clubs are in to stay. Washington, Cleve
land and Indianapolis have emphatically
declared that they will stay and finish
the season at all hazards. Tbe action of the
League in admitting to membership Brooklyn
and Cincinnati was perfectly legal and honor
able, just as much as the action of the Associa
tion in admitting to membership clubs of minor
organizations. The clubs applied for member
ship in a legal way and we admitted them. The
transaction was just as uunurauie auu legal as
the admission of any other club or clubs to any
other organization. Host certainly we are
looking after the interests of tbe League, and
of baseball generally, but in doing so we do not
mean to violate any agreement or rule. I will
rot be surprised if the Baltimore and Wash
ington clubs are merged into one. There were
rumors of such a deal when I was in New York.
1 know that the 'proprietors of the two clubs
sad one or two private conferences. If the
clubs consolidate a very strong team will be
BERGEN NOT SIGNED.
The Well-Known Jockey May Stay With
From all we can glean, however, there is no
truth in the report that Bergen is yet under
contract with the Dwyers. We believe they
nave made some overtures in the matter, but
will not engage htm unless Captain Brown, to
whom he was engaged for the past season, sig
nifies his intention to no longer retain Bergen's
services. Tbe Dwyers have always stood npon
racing etiquette in such matters, never seeking
to entice other people's employes. It has been
their policy to make their men. Thev made
the reputations of Bowe and McCabe as
trainers, and of McLaughlin as a jockey from
the chances they offered them, taking them up
when they were at the bottom of the ladder,
and a man in their employ always has his posi
tion secure as long as he desires to remain, pro
vided he does his duty. That they like Bergen
they do not deny, and if Captain Brown does
not "reserve" him it is very likely Bereren will
wear tbe red and blue; but there is no existing
In-regard to young Day, it is said he will ride
next year for Hon. W. L. Scott Day rode- a
great deal for Mr. Scott last season, among
others. Chaos in tbe Futurity. Hesbowed con
siderable ability as a horseman, his nerve be
ing simplv wonderful. Indeed, the only draw
back. to-Day was, that his nerve approached
daring, if not positive, recklessness. When he
rode Chaos at Monmouth last season, he rode
in such a fashion as was positively dangerous
to aU others, and Mr. Withers set him down or
rather, suspended him for the year for "wil
fully careless riding." but he was reinstated on
his promise to do better. Many have thought
his nearly fatal fall at Jerome Park was
caused by his own recklessness. However
that may be, it is certain that, preach against
- it as they will, owners have a wonderful fond
ness for a jockey who has so little fear that he
lands their horse in front. Hence, Dar will be
in great demand, especially in big fields where
some jockeys are very timorous, and where
daring is often the main element of success.

Baitijioee, November 17. Messrs. Barnie
and Waltz arrived here from New York last
night. They are completely broken npover
the result of the meeting. Barnie is very bitter,

the action of the combine. Said he

Columbus, November 17. There is much
dissatisfaction here over the insane folly of the
American Association in failing to keep Brook
lyn and Cincinnati in its circuit, and the Colum
bus members of tbe "combine" are condemned
right and left for allowing Von der Ahe to rule
them. Unless the management of tbe Colum
bus club can make it appear to tbe satifaction
of tbe patrons of this city that they did all that
was possible toward fostering good strong clnbs
and holding the better cities' for the good of
the Association, they will not receive tbe en
couragement which was given them by an ex
tended natronoce last season. The natrons sav
here that a club from Syracuse or Detroit can
not hold the interest and draw the people
which would be assured by Brooklyn, Cincin
nati or Kansas City. Those interested are
especially sore over tbe defeat ot Wikoff for
his old position, as bis standing in this city and
wherever he is known inspired a confidence in
the sport by the public generally.

A local sporting man states that there Is
little chance of a contest between McCaffrey
and Sullivan. It is also stated on reliable au

fornia Athletic Club declines to offer a purse
for McCaffrey and Sullivan, and it is also said
that tbe club will not offer a big pnrse for a
contest between Kiiram and Jaccson, believing
that the latter would have too much the best
of the battle.

GAS FOE A BIG CITY.
Tlie Natural Fuel to be Used in Chi
cago Within Six Months or So.
INDIANA WELLS TO SUPPLY IT.
Baron Jerzmanoski Confident the Scheme
Will Prove a Success.
THE YICE PRESIDENT OP THE TEUST
Talks cf His Corporation, Which fiiisti as "let Wholly
Baron Jerzmanoski talks confidently of
piping natural gas from Indiana into Chi
cago and serving customers in that city
within six months. He does not know what
the probable price to consumers will be, but
thinks it will be low enough to secure a large
amountof business. He sees no obstacles in
the way, now that the Indiana courts have
decided that gas can be piped without the
rer-EClAt, TELZOBAM TO THE SISFATCH.l
New York, November 17. Baron E. J.
Jerzmanoski, Vice President of the Chicago
Gas Trust, talked confidently to-day about
piping natural gas from Indiana to Chicago.
"We're going to carry natural gas to Chi
cago, that's certain," he said, "for we've
got the necessary gas lands, after three years
of negotiations; the court of Indiana has
decided that we have the right to pipe gas
out of the State, and we have all the money
we want for the enterprise. We hope to be
heating the private houses of Chicago by
the new method in six months or less. We
only want the people of Chicago to think
well of the project and give us their sym
pathy, instead oi abusing us as a monopoly.
"We have shown conclusively that the bigger
the monopoly the cheaper and better tne
gas that is furnished."
AS YET ONLY ON PAPEB.
Baron Jerzmanoski wonld not reveal the
nature of the business that was done at Sat
urday's meeting of the -few York Directors
of the Chicago Gas Trust, bnt said it was
only in the line of the numerous meetings
that have been held daring the last two
months. "The corporation, as yet, is only
on paper," be remarked, "and we have
nothing to make public yet about the capi
tal which will be required for the plant,"
but he mentioned later that in order to ad
vance the project, it had been incorporated
under the laws of Indiana, with a capital
stock of $2,000,000 and $5,000,000 bonds.
This stock, however, will be increased as it
may be thought necessary, as soon as a per
manent organization is effected.
The Baron thought that no difficulty
would be experienced with the citv author
ities in getting the right to perforate the
streets. In fact, he thonght that the Indi
vidual companies in the trust already had
tne rigbt to lay pipes lor (distributing
GAS FOB HEATING PURPOSES.
This part of the work would probably be
done by the illuminating gas companies.
No doubt a good many of the pipes already
in use by the companies will be used for
carrying natural gas into private houses,
since it will be at low pressure. He had no
doubt about the possibility of carrying nat
ural gas 130 miles. ""Whynot to San Fran
cisco?" he asked.
The purpose of the trust is to lay double
main pipes from their gas lands in Indiana.
He said he had no idea of the cost of the
plant. The 86 miles from Pennsylvania to
Buffalo, together with the city pipes belong
ing to the plant, cost, he heard, $7,000,000.
Of course that to Chicago will cost much
more, but probably not so much propor
tionately, as the work can now be done more
cheaply. The Baron said their immediate
object was to furnish gas for private houses,
rather than for manufacturing purposes,
but of course they will appeal to business as
far as their capacity admits.
THE PBOBABLE PBICE.
"How abont the price of natural gas com-
Eared with that in Pittsburg and Buffalo?"
e was asked.
"The price will regulate itself," he said.
"We are bound to sell low enough to get
people to see that it is to their advantage to
use it rather than other fuel. The circum
stances are different than at Pittsburg and
Buffalo. Pittsburg is right next door to the
gas wells, while the amount used in Buffalo
is too small to admit of comparison. But
if our corporation doesn't sell cheap enough
there is always capital enough to come in
and compete, if they think they can do bet
ter than we can."

Tbe Police Landed One of the East End
Barglnrs Lat Night.
Officer Joseph Baker last, night arrested
a man at the Market, as a suspicious per
son, who gave his name as James McCor
mack, from New York. When Assistant
Superintendent Boger O'Mara viewed the
man in his cell he recognized him as a
Philadelphia crook and thought he could
be identified as one of the men who bur
glarized the Dilworth and other residences
in the East End.
The effort will be made to-day and to
morrow to secure his identification, and Su
perintendent O'Mara is satisfied he will be
able to prove him a bad citizen, and most
probably connected with the recent bur
glaries. HITHER AND THITHER.

HIS PATE IS SEALED.
The Colored Pnllman Cnr Porter Who
murdered Officer McDevit Arrested
at Portland Didn't Know He
Killed Any Person.
Portland, Ohe., November 17. H. E.
Gibbs, the colored Pullman car porter, who
shot and killed the boy, James McDevit,
and very seriously wounded special officer
Thomas McDevit, on the night of October
11, and who was arrested several days ago
at Yreka, California, arrived here to-day.
Gibbs, in an interview, claims that at the
time of the shooting he thought' he was
acting in self-defense and says he did not
know thai McDevit was an officer; that he
did not see the boy at all, but shot at what
he supposed a man. He says he did not
know ud to the time of his arrest that any
of his shots had proved fatal.
After the shooting he hid about the city
for a week. He then got on board the
southbound train, and by stealing a ride
reached Medford. He then struck across
the Siskiyou mountains, his purpose being
to reach the seacoast and thus make his
escape. Weary and footsore, he finally
gave np the trip coastward and started up
the Klammath river, when he was captured
by Deputy Sheriff Clarkson. Gibbs is
completely broken down in spirits, and
when narrating the incident of the fatal
shooting and his subsequent wanderings
wept like a child.
Before being arrested, Gibbs says he in
tended to surrender to tbe authorities the
first opportunity. Gibbs is already in
dicted lor murder in the first degree, and the
trial will probably be called this week. He
cannot possibly hope to escape the gallows.
DIRECTOR OLIVER HOME.
He Says the Bnrb Wlro Combination la
Almost Settled No Freeze Ont Being
Played Another Sleeting.
George T. Oliver, of the Oliver & Rob
erts Wire Co., arrived home from New
York yesterday morning. He went there
several days ago to consult with other wire
manufacturers in regard to the absorption
of their plants into the Federal Steel
Co. The latter is the combination com
posed of wire manufacturers, which was
formed in this city several weeks ago. Con
cerning his trip andwhat has been so far
accomplished, Mr. Oliver said:
"The publication of the details of the
combination in The Dispatch this morn
ing and what has been printed before, fully
covers the matter. The consultation in
New York had the effect of settling a num
ber of details. A scheme of this kind is a
gigantic undertaking, an'd cannot be con
summated in a couple of days. Tbe organi
zation has not yet been completed, but it is
now in such Bhape that it is a sure thing.
The matter of the charter has not been
definitely settled upon. Until that is finished
we cannot locate the general office. Theidea
now is to have the charter granted under
the laws of Illinois, If that is done tbe
head office will be located , in Chicago. If
we do not take the Illinois charter we will
apply for one in Pennsylvania or Minne
sota. The laws of the latter State are pecu
liarly adapted to a combination of this kind.
If we get the charter here, the offices will
be located in the Lewis block. We will
have an office here anyhow, but whether it
ill be tbe general headquarters or not, is
not yet known. We will have branch offices
in New York', Cincinnati, St, Louis, San
Francisco and other large cities.
There will be no freezing ont in the com
bination. This talk about some of the small
wire manufacturers being scared is wrong.
They can come into the Federal Company
and sell their plants for the same propor
tionate price as tne large manufac
turers. The latter are fair minded
men, and want the organization
to treat everybody alike. There is not one
firm in the country that has not been given
a chance to come in on the most liberal
terms. Another meeting will be held
shortly when the matter will be closed up,
and the business will be done in the name
of the Federal Steel Co."
The sale of tbe Bessemer plant of the
Pittsburg Steel Casting Co. was made to

AN ENGINEERING PEAT.
The River Poshed Back for a Pump Founda
tion at the Carrie Furnace Other Com
panies to Sink Wells.
Mr. Druxed, mechanical engineer, has
just accomplished a neat engineering feat
The Carrie Furnace, Bankin station, has
been inconvenienced lately by lack of water
for furnace purposes. To obviate this diffi
culty the firm put down a foundation for
a pump below the bed of the river. To do
this Mr. Druxed drove the Monongahela
river back some 15 feet The method for
pushing the water back was to drive sheet
piling in the river, the piles being driven so
close as to make it water tight. The water
between the pile and the river bank was
pumped dry, and then the foundation was
sunk 10 feet below.
At the bottom of the foundation great
square blocks of stone are laid as a bed for
the pump. The sides are built of pressed
brick. About 00 feet of 12-inch diameter
pipe will draw the water from the river,
and abont 2,000 feet will throw it into the
receiver. From the receiver more pipes will
be used to distribute the water throughout
the furnace for its various uses. It is cal
culated that when the pump is in good run
ning order it will lift 4,000,000 gallons each
day. The pump is to be double action.
Th'e cost of the whole work, including the
building of the engine, is estimated at
Singer, Nimick & Co., Miller, Metcalf
and Parkin, and tbe Bear Creek Oil Re
finery are going to adopt at their works, the
same idea for getting water (or mill purposes
as is now used at the Lucy furnace. Each
of the firms at an early day intends to sink
water shafts in the river, so that they will
be able to use pure spring water instead of
the muddy river water. Mr. Alexander
Foster, of "Singer, Nimick & Co., said that
the well at the Lucy fnrnace, if it is succes
ful, will be a great boon to the manufactur
ing portion oi Pittsburg. He says that the
progress of the well is watched closely by
all the manufacturers. ' If it acts well for
six months, he said, almost all the mills will
be furnished with similar ones.
EEGEETS IN TRINITI.
John H. Shoenberajer Failed to Provide for
tbe Church as He Intended.
The death of John H. Shoenberger has
given ris"e to all sorta of rumors about Trin
ity Church, of which he was so long a
prominent pillar. Mr. Shoenberger became
a member of the parish when it was very
poor, and he stood by it until it became rich
and the present magnificent church struc
ture was erected. It was largely through
Mr. Shoenberger's efforts that tne church
was built, and not satisfied with payiog the
greater portion of its cost, he yearly added
gifts aggregating a large sum.
When "Mr. Shoenberger moved to New
York his affections still were with tbe
church, and he frequently expressed himsell
as intending to endow it when he died. It
was his intention to tound a worshiping
place in this city like "old Trinity" in New
York. It was, therefore, a great surprise to
almost everyone when Mr. Shoenberger was
not re-elected a delegate to the general con
vention, a position he had held for over 40
years. Mr. Shoenberger was humiliated by
hisMefeat, and did not endow the church as
he had intended. .
A number of prominent families have
withdrawn from the parish on account of
dissatisfaction with the rector, Bev. Max
well, but that gentleman says that the trou
ble will soon be settled.

by The Dispatch staff correspondent.
Washington, November 17. Commis
sioner of Internal Bevenue Mason, in his
report regards the general condition of the
service throughout the country as very sat
isfactory. One thousand two hundred and
fifty-three violations ot internal revenue
law have been reported by the revenue
agents during the year. Six hundred and
fifty-nine persons have been arrested on
their information. Property to the value of
$137,404 has been reported by them
for seizure, and $94,606 for assess
ments for unpaid taxes and penal
ties. The number of stills seized
was 456, resulting in the arrest of 636 per
sons and the death of one and the wounding
of two officers of the service. High tribute
to the revenue agents is paid for efficiency
and fidelity. The commissioner says he
does not regard the present force as
sufficient for the, important work
intrusted to them. He, there
fore, recommends that the force be increased
from 20 to 30, and that their traveling ex
penses be increased. The total expense of
the service lor the next hscal year is esti
mated at $4,266,590.
INCBEA3ED TOBACCO MANTJFACTDKES.
The increase in the quantity of tobacco
and snuff and in the number of cigars and
cigarettes for the last fiscal year over those
taxed during the previous fiscal year was:
Manufactured tobacco, 11,535,636 pounds;
snuff, 626,631 pounds; cigars, 22,658,990;
The export account shows an increase in
manufactured tobacco of 118,183 pounds, an
increase in the number of cigars exported
of 266,700, and an increase in the number of
cigarettes exported of 65,909,950. The num
ber ot cigars imported during the vear was
90.087,407. The val u o f th e manufactured
tobacco imported was ?t 70,353.
The total number oi special taxpayers is
given as 830,134, of whom 590,013 are deal
ers in manufactured tobacco.
AN LKCEEASE IN DISTILLEBIES ALSO.
The whole number of grain distilleries
registered during the year was 1,440, of
which number 1,267 were operated, an in
crease of 140 in the number registered and
of 238 in the number operated, as compared
with the previous year. In the class of
larger distilleries there was an increase of
two in the number registered, but there was
an increase of 68 in the number operated.
There were 3.126 fruit distilleries regis
tered and 3,072 operated, an increase of 442
in the number registered and of 465 in the
number operated during tbe fiscal year. The
total number of grain, molasses and fruit
distilleries registered and operated during
the year are 4,0banu i,av, respectively.
The number of gallons of spirits produced
from grain during the year (87,887,456 gal
lons) shows an increase'of 19,499,296 gallons
over the product (68,388,160 gallons) of the
previous year, and is 4,161,150 gallons more
than the average produced (83,726,306 gal
lons) for the last ten years.
DECBEASE IN MOLASSES EUM.
The quantity of mm distilled from mo
lasses during the year (1,471,054 gallons),
shows a decrease of 420,192 gallons from the
product of the previous year (1,891,246 gal
lons) and is 416,510 gallons less ttian the
average product (1,872,564 gallons) for the
last ten years.
The Commissioner renews the recom
mendation of his predecessor in regard to the
expediency of taxing all fractions of a gal
lon of distilled spirits, and expresses the
hope that legislation will be had to remove
all opportunity for evasions of existing law
on this subject
Tbe increase in the production of Bourbon
whisky is 14,497,175 gallons; rye whisky,
2,870,078; gin, 156 978; high wines, 13,059;
pure, neutral or cologne spirits, 96,441; mis
cellaneous, 1,135,069. Total increase, 19,-
ALCOHOL IN INDUSTBIAL AETS.
In regard to the use of alcohol in the in
dustrial arts, the Commissioner says that in
view of the fact that the special temptation
to demethylation is to secure a cheap alco
holic beverage, the importance of separating
methylated spirits from all stocks of sneb
beverages is very great It is also equally
important, he says, to keep methy
lated spirits out of the hands
of distillers and rectifiers who use stills, as
it is impossible to demetbylate spirits with
out the use of stills. He estimates the
quantity of alcohol annually used in the
arts and manufactures at 8,000,000 gallons.
The quantity of fruit brandy of all kinds
withdrawn from distilleries during the year
to be deposited in bonded warehouses was
The quantity of distilled spirits in the
United States, except what may be in cus
toms bonded warehouses on October 1, 1889,
was 102,650,982 gallons. The average
monthly production of oleomargarine
during the fiscal year was 2,972,002 pounds.

THE HEW DOMINION IN AFEICA.
Congratulations Over the Supposed Fact That Ger
many Has Been Outwitted.
Tbe unrest of labor in England becomes
more apparent every day. In fact, there is
L almost a mania in the strike business. En
gland, while regretting that fact, glories
over the prospects of a new dominion in
tiOSVOfr, November 17. The prediction
made a week ago that the bakers, under the
potent leadership of John Burns, would
obtain the concessions which they demanded
from their employers, has been fulfilled and
thousands of journeymen bakers are con
gratulating themselves upon a marked im
provement in their condition. The boss
bakers are trying to shift the cost of the con
cessions upon the general public by raising
tbe price of bread a .half-penny per loaf."
The consumers vigorously object to
paying more than the accustomed
Jince, ana it is claimed by
arge buyers, who have looked into the
matter, that a half-penny actually covers the
entire cost of making a loaf of bread and is,
therefore, much more than would suffice to
recoup the boss baker tor the additional ex
pense to which he is subjected by reason of ,
the increased wages of tbe employes. It is
probable that the opposition of the publio
and the natural effect of competition will
soon bring abont a reduction iu the price of
the staff of life to tbe old figures.
THE SXEIKE MANIA SPREADING.
The strike mania continues to spread, and
one of its most conspicuous manifestations
is in tbe stoppage of several omnibus lines
by reason of a conflict with the employes.
Private owners of cabs and other vehicles
are meanwhile reaping a harvest by carry
ing the former patrons of the suspended
lines. The fares charged by these tempora
ry omnibuses are sometimes exorbitant, and
in consequence there is much grumblinsr.
The extent to which the relations between
monopoly and labor are being studied in
England can hardly be realized by Ameri
cans, who seem to have adopted the "Let
alone" theory as the final word in social cir
cles. Here nearly everybody recognizes
mat 10 let mings aione means social suicide.
Something must be done, and though stu
dents of the question still differ widely as
to the remedy, there is no doubt that a dif
ference of opinion is observable in the di
rection of socialism in some form or other.
ENGLAND'S HEW DOMINION.

grant of a royalty charter, to the new South
