riABOE SYMPATHY AS BOSH
President Kimick Eeceives an Im
portant Letter From Carroll.
'JVM FAKRLL'S OFFER TO OPHA5I
"Congressman O'Neill talks very plainly
about the new baseball League. He con
demns the Brotherhood for refusing to ad
mit St. Louis, and states that a Brotherhood
club in Pittsburg will be a failure. Fred
Carroll writes an important letter to Presi
dent Nimick. Fat Farrell makes an offer
te fight Arthur TJpham.
SriCIAL ZeXZOBAX TO THE EIBrATCHl
Washington, December 22. Ex-Congressman
O'Neill, the St. Louis Browns
genial counsel, is back here, and from the
way he speaks of his reception at the recent
Brotherhood meeting, it was anything but
satisfactory. He is very much disappointed
in the action of the Brotherhood in not
taking the St Louis and Columbus clubs
into the fold. These cities, ha claims, are
both great baseball towns. He predicts
that both Buffalo and Pittsburg clubs will
be failures as far as the Brotherhood goes.
If it comes to the extreme, the Association
will organize a six-club circuit. He greatly
favors placing an Association team here, as
he says this is a 25-cent city.
A 1SEOTHERHOOD SBBOB.
jRegarding the Brotherhood saying that the
laboring element are with them, it is all bosh
Id his opinion. Sunday baseball in the West is,
and always will be, largely attended by those
who are compelled to work throughout the
week. As to Comiskey signing with Chicago,
be is non-committal. There are Tory lew play
ers in town, in fact. All quiet on the Potomac.
The Congressman said: "Most assuredly the
Association will surmount its present diffi
culties. Many people are undoubtedly trying to
kill it, but their efforts will not only fail but
will recoil on themselves. I mean exactly what
I-say when I say that the Brotherhood clnbs in
Buffalo and Pittsburg will be failures. There
is not money enough behind either of these
' clubs to keep good players and carry a team
through a losing season, for next season will
certainly be a losing one to both Brotherhood
and League. This is just as sure as we live. I
am not making these statements without
authority, because I know there has been some
very tall hustling In both the cities named to
raise H,Upr JiOOO.
IX)TS OF MONET -WASTED.
Many assessments will be made before the
first season ends, and these new baseball capi
talists will think baseball a very un
satisfactory business before they are
through with it St. Louis wonld certainly
have been a first-class city for the Brotherhood
because there wonla be only one clan there. It
Uonlynonscrsi and claptrap trying to, under
false" pretenses, nlist the sympathies of the
laboring classes into the Brotherhood scheme.
It is just as purely a capitalistic scheme as any
baseball organization I know of "
"The officials ot the Washington National

JACK EOWE'S HOROSCOPE
For the Buffalo Players' League Clnb Shows
Vp Very Welt
ISrXCUX. TZXXOBAX TO THE CXSrjLTClt.1
BrFrAiO, N. Y., December 22. The mana
gers of the Buffalo Players' club are going
ahead in earnest with their preparations for
makinjr-.baseball lively in this town next sea
son, and yesterday took their first official step,
when the certificate of Incorporation of the
Buffalo Baseball Club was filed. The capital
stock is CO, 000 in shares of $100 each andthe club
is to exist 60 years. The incorporators are ex
Sheriff Gilbert Clerk Shire, of the Superior
Court; Charles R. Fitzgerald. Jack Rowe and
Deacon -Jim" White.
Jack Rowe said yesterday that the prospects
of a successful season were very bright in
Buffalo, and he believed the League would
t revolutionize the baseball business by making
it more popular and avoiding many of the mis
takes of the old magnates in their treatment of
vlajers. Mr. Bowe expects that 25-cent ad
missions will be allowed for Buffalo; but that
will not be determined until the March sched
ule meeting. Buffalo is a great 25-cent city.
Wilmot's desertion of the Players' League
has canted some comment here, for he was
wanted by the Buffalo clnb. Kowe does not
believe bis statement that he wrote three times
to President Ward for advance money without
receiving a reply, for Ward would have noti
fied Kowe. who would have gladly advanced
the money. "It is a very lame excuse any
way." said the Buffalo man.
The Buffalo club has signed 13 men. Includ
ing White and Bowe, who will do much to im
prove the work of the ex-Senators from Wash
ington. The slayers and probable positions are

They all claimed that Tiernan eiredwhenhe
stated that the Players' League wanted him to

was just the opposite, so it is stated. He re
ceived $2,500 from the New York club, and it
Is quite likely that be would have been paid
iaooOby the riayers League. But he asked for
13,800,' and that was an amount which the mag
nates thought they conldn't stand.
Tm sorry that Tiernan has left us," said
Tim Keeie to a Sun reporter last night -He is
a nice Tellow and a good player, bnt he doesn't
state -the truth when he says the Players'
League offered bim $500 less than his salary
last year. He was too exorbitant in his de
mands, and the League couldn't sexheir way
clear to meet tbem. The fact is, the players
whoare demanding such enormous salanes are
simply takins advantage of the differences be

Some Prospects of ibe American Associa

rsrECtAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.1
PHiLAKLPniA. December22. Brighter pros
pects are dawning for the American Associa
tion. There is no doubt now that an effort
will be made to reorganize the circuit, and
there may possibly be eight clnbs. Rochester
has been admitted, and there are now five
clubs. There is no truth in the report that Co
lumbus has joined the International Association
and that St. Louis has applied for admission
to the Western Association. The American
Association will probably bold a meeting on
the second Monday In January, by which time
more will be Known about its prospective cir
cuit The managers of the Athletic clnb an
nounce that they have no intention of joining
the Atlantic Association. Secretary Whlttaker,
of the Athletic club. Is chairman of the Amer
ican Association Circuit Committee, and be
favors a 12-club circuit.
"I believe it possible to form a 12-club clr-.
cult," said Mr. Whlttaker. "For Eatorn
cities we have Boston, Lowell, Hartford. New
Haven. Worcester, Providence, Troy. Albany,
Brooklyn, Newark, Philadelphia, Baltimore
and Washington to choose from, while in the
West Sr. Lodis, Chicago, Louisville, Indian
apolis, Columbus, Detroit, Toledo and Mil
waukee are available. The Bos
ton League club has alreadv consented
to placing an American Association team
in the field, the intention being to play it on the
same grounds with theVLeagne club, having
the schedule so arranged that there will be no
conflicting dates. A similar arrangement may
also be made at Brooklyn and Cbicaffe, al
though we are not counting on them with any
degree of certaiuty."
Mr. Whlttaker Includes Washington and
Indianapolis in bis proposed circuit, because.
in his opinion, these two cities will be dropped
by the National League at its meeting next
month. Toledo and Detroit are both willing to
accept franchises, if they are offered.

two days of last week. They put up at a prom

Brinker, a baseball enthusiast and a director
in last year's local association. Several
secret conferences were held, so it is learned,

over, practically decided to buy individually

A BASEBALL SENSATION.
Manager Mntrle is Said to Have Signed
With the Players' League.
New Yoke, December 22. A document was
exhibited by the Players' Brotherhood men to
night, signed by James Mntrle, ,and consisting
of an agreement to quit Day and manage the
New York Players' club for 1890 at a salary of
5,000. The'names of E. F. Bell. George F.
Gore and Nick Engel are appended as wit
nesses. As the agreement purports to be signed to
day it is probably illegal, even if genuine. It
has caused a sensation among baseball men,
Some Interesting Pointers Abo it the Con
dition ot the Contestants.
Considerable interest is centered in the big
72-hbur race which starts to-day in the London
Theater at 12 o'clock. All the arrangements
have been completed except the swearing in of
the score keepers. The contestants are all in
the city and party feeling is running very
high among tbem. Several of them
met in the theate" yesterday and some
very warm exchanges of opinion took place.
Already some private speculation has taken
5 lace on the event and Herty. Hegelman and
foremac seem to equally divide first honors as
far as being favorites Is concerned. Connors,
Golden and Day come next Aout 13 men will
start, and it is safe to say that the contest will
be a severe ono. Principally there ae three
parties, vizw tha Hegelman party, the Nore
mac party and the Day party. Noremac and
Herty have no strong feelings between them,
but a local business man is backing Noremac
against Day. Golden, of course, is another bit
ter opponent of the Noremac people. During
a conversation last evening Golden said:
"After I ran so well at Lewiston I resofved to
come here. I may not be able to win, bnt I feel
confident that 1 won't be shutout Certainly
the best 12-honrs a day men in the country are
here, and the track is a hard one to run on.
Noremac and Day ought to be in better condi
tion than tho balance of us, because we have
been in some severe races lately. However,
we'll know more about it next Friday or Satur
day. Most certainly the man who wins will
have earned his $450."

FAEEELL AND TJPHAM.
The Eastern Man Demnnds Unfair Condi
tions for a Fight.
John Quinn,the well-known local sporting
man,4 returned from the East on Saturday, and
will return toPhiladelphla to-day to attend the
race between McCIellandand Miller to-morrow.
Mr. Quinn is backing McClelland and thinks
be will defeat Miller. Speaking of the pro
posed battle between Pat Farrell, of this city,
and Arthur TJpham. he said that TJpham's de
mands are unreasonable.
TJpham wants to fight Farrell atlSSpoundB
within four weeks. It is almost impossible for
Farrell to get to that weight in the time speci
fied. Farrell is willing to fight TJpham at 161
pounds in nine Weeks from signing articles for
f,000 a side. This offer is a fair one. consider
ing that Farrell is considerably overweight
now. It seems, however, that TJpham is not
anxious for a fair battle. It is likely that Far
rell will soon go West if he cannot secure a
satisfactory match In the Bast
Mr. Quinn. speaking of the winter running
races, said that the Eastern meetings are a
great success. He backed Amos for a place

A Great Hatch Arranged to Take Place at

be fair, the people of Washington who are fond
of such sport will enjoy a great treat in a foot

team will be here to contest against1 a plcxed
team of prominent players. Tbts visit of the
cadets will eclipse the one of the Princeton
College, as the cadets ara better known here
abouts, andthe large contingent of naval and
army pebpfe wjll give tone to the affair. This
Naval Academy team is a goed ope, as is shown
by their victories over the ramous'one from the
University of Virginia, and will give a splendid
exhibition of the game that has taken such a

Captain Catlln, the head of the team, is re

Lucky Baldwin's Good Bet.
At the commencement of the present year
Mr. "Lucky" Baldwin offered to wager $5,000
that he would not see any of his horses race on
an Eastern track this year. Mr. Baldwin's pas
sion for seeing his flyers do battle with the
cracks was so well known that a friend of his
who happened to be present snapped at the
offer, and, like the colored sport, no doubt
thonght it was "jes like findin' de money." Mr.
Baldwins horses journeyed East however, but
the owner did not accompany tbem, and al
though they met victory and defeat in turn as
other stables. Mr. Baldwin's familiar face was
never seen in tbe paddock or ou tne quarter
stretch. At tbe commencement of 1890 tbe
master of the Santa Anita stable will be free
from the obligation of bis wager, and (as be
bas now virtually won the money) be richer in
pocket by tbe neat sum of $5,000. This will bny
a few oats for tbe stable, besides paying the
millionaire turfman's traveling expenses the

MeLnnghlln as a Trainer.
Talking of jockeys who have been great but
are on the point of retiring, we are reminded of
the fact that McLaughlin's engagement with
Mr. P. Lorillard begins with the new year.
Among many people we find an impression that
McLaughlin will not get along at Mr. Loril
lard's. He has, they say, no experience as a
trainer beyond tbe fact that occasionally he
bandied Miss Woodford, George Kinney, Sir
Dixon and others of the Dwyer stable when
RoweorMcCabe were elsewhere with the bal
ance of the stable. In such cases the horses
were trained when ho took tbem and he only
had to keep them going. In this case it will be
different He will have a lot of horses of no
established reputation, good and bad alike.
Tbe fact that he has not an estalished reputa
tion as a trainer may cause Mr. Lorillard to
interfere with bim, as employers are apt to do
in snch cases. Moreover. Mr. Lorillard. while
one of the most liberal of employers, Ja not the.'

DISCOVERED BI A CHILD.
That Frightful Butchery In a Nlles Home
Niles, O., December 23. In addition to
particulars of the Shelar tragedy, sent
earlier, the following is learned. Kittie
Meeker, a little sister of the mur
dered woman, caused the discov
ery of the tragedy. She went ' to
the house to deliver the evening's milk, as
usual, and was nnable to gain admittance
to the house. Charles Mossman was in the
vicinity and she told 'him about it. He
went with her to the rear of the house, and,
finding a door open, entered.
The first floor of the house was deserted,
but a terrible sight met their eyes in the
second story. The dead baby wjjs onthe

J. H. Thomas, of BpringfieTd, O., is sure
that his prospects for becoming a Senator

ISFKCUt, TSUEGBAX TO TBS DISPjLTCH.1
Colttmbtjs, December 22. There seems
to be a mutual understanding between the
leading candidates for the Senate that there
shall be a cassation of hostilities until after
Christmas. They are, however, suspicious
of each other, and it is likely some of the
finest work will be accomplished between
this and the last of fhe week. The million
aires are not slothful and do, not tire early
in the good cause with such a prize at
John H. Thomas, of Springfield, who has
been in the city for a couple of days, left for
home last evening, saying that he would
not likely return until tbe last of the week
unless he discovered there was some' effort
to take undue advantage of him; then he
would abandon the Christmas observance
for one year. Hr. Thomas talks entertain
ingly, when it is considered that he is
looked upon as the leading candidate for
the Senate against Calvin S. Brice. Thomas
said last evening:
A STEONO CANDIDATE.
"The people generally speak of the candi
dates as if Brice and I are the leading can
didates, and the fight is between us. I am
not satisfied that the contest will not yet be
between myself and JIcMahon. He has
quite a strong following and is the opposite
of the elements which are represented in the
candidacy of Brice, and I think if
Brice begins to lose that McMahon
with myself will be the gainers. The worst
thing which can be said against McMahon
is that he hasnever done anything for the
party; in fact he has not so much as opened
his mouth in its interest since he left Con
gress, where he was placed as a recognition
of his ability, and not because he had ever
done anything looking to the strengthening
of the party in the State."
"What do you consider your leading
claims on the party?" was asked of Mr.
lies with the workuegmen of the State. I
do not suppose there is a man in
Ohio who has done more in the
way of example and direct work in
the interest of organized labor than
myself. While other manufacturers in
Springfield have had strikes on hand trying
to grind the men down, I have been run
ning steadily, payiug advanced wages and
working them less hours. In their fights
with the capitalists I have on one or two oc
casions made public speeches in which I
have. taken the part of the.mecnanics and
laboring men, and they remember these
EJDOBSED BY THE KNIGHTS.
"The adoption of the resolutions by the
Dayton Assembly, Knights of Labor, was
unknown to me, and while I Jiave not asked
for anything of the kind I expect that other
organizations of a similar character will take
like action before the contest is concluded.
If I did not consider that I am the strongest
candidate for the position, and could do
more for the Democratic party in the State
and the nation than any other candidate. I
would withdraw at once. I believe that the
members of the Legislature will see it as I
do, and I feel quite sure of election."
"Are you urging any special point
against Brice, your leading opponent?''
"No, I am on the best ot terms with all
the other candidates and expect to continue
in that manner to the close. I learned
while ou the -road as a salesman, several
years ago, that it did not pay to make an
attack, or run down the goods of an op
ponent, in an effort to make sales, and I
think the same will hold good in regard to
politics. If y policy has always been to
give the best recommendation I have to my
own wares or my own cause, and I think it
will win in the long run.
BRICE NOT A BESIDENT.
"Of course on the question of which you
speak, the fact that Mr. Brice is not a resi
dent will go a great way toward his defeat,
I. think this alone should insure his defeat
and probably will. Ohio has plenty of
good men in the State who are identified
with her material interests as I am, and I
think some one of them should represent
the State in the Senate. It is also urged
that Brice did not come home to vote at the
Mr. Thomas denies that he had anything
to do with the apparent bureau interviews
which were .gotten up in this city against
the candidacy oi Brice, yet there is a gen
eral belief that he at least had knowledge of
what was coming, if he did not in
spire them through his manager. After a
long talk with Mr. Thomas, and hearing his
reasons as to why he should be elected;
hearing his estimate of his strength so far
as be is, capable of giving anything of the
kind: after learning the loose manner in
which he has been conducting his canvass,
without any direct or intelligent aim, and
with managers who know little more than
himself in regard to the work of politics, the
impression forces itself that he is not now
and will not even be a second in the race,
but there will be at least two or three candi
dates who will lead him when the time
comes for voting in caucus.

Canadian Detectives Think They Are on tho
tSFKCIAX, TKXSOBAK TO TUX DtSrjLTCB.1
MontbeaIi, December 22. The report
was current here to-day that Silcojt, the de
faulting cashier of the House of Represen
tatives, and his mistress, Herminie Thibault,
were in Montreal. Similar reports have been
current here for some time, but all efforts to
locate Silcott have failed. The big reward
offered for his capture has induced several
Montreal detectives to take up the case, and
one of them who is working on the case
claims to have a clue that will lead
to his arrest. It is claimed that about a
week ago Herminie Thibault arrived 'in
Montreal on a visit to a married sister, and
prolonged her visit until yesterday, when"
she suddenly announced that she
was going to Quebec. The sister,
when questioned, admitted that she
had a visitor, but refused to give any in
formation, The detectives have spotted the
house, and are awaiting developments. They
say they are positive that, thi woman in
question, is Silcott's mistress, and during
her stay here she was visited by a man
who, it is claimed, answers Silcott's de
scription. The Montreal detectives, however, who
are wVrking on the case, are doing so on the
spec, ind, as they are not certain of their
man, cave not yet taken any steps to arrest
the supposed Silcott. The only certain
facts in the rumors are that Silcott's mis
tress is'supposed to have been, on a visit to
a relative in Montreal, and several detec
ttyes are now trying to make a case out of it,

and that Castellp, after a slnbborh resist

Major Serpa Pinto conferred with the Gov

MRS. KNOX AND THE COUNTESS
Reported in Washington, and a Reconcilia

rSFXCIAI.-TXXXniUUt'TO THX DISPATCH. 1
"WASHiNGTOir, December 22. Mrs.
Knox, of Pittsburg, and her daughter,
Countess Di Hontereole, have arrived here
from their Virginia plantation, and
are stopping at the Xormandie. They
are accompanied by Mrs. Barker,
of Pittsburg. It is not known exactly
whether they will remain- here for the sea
son or go to Pittsburg, bnt the chances are
in favor of this city. It is rumored
here that negotiations are pending
between the two families, looking to a re
conciliation between the 'Count and his
bride. Some time ago it was stated that
the Count had been seen near the Virginia
plantation and. was striving to be reunited
to his wire.
Now it is said Baron De Fava, the Italian
Minister, has been acting in tbe role of
peacemaker, having been interested in the
matter by the entreaties of the Count's par
ents. He is in this city, and this, it is sup
posed, is the reason Mrs. Knox and her
daughter have come here.

The Quaker City Reports 2,000 Cases

The Disease so Far Has Appeared in an
ceedingly Mild Form.
II CAME LIKE THE GEEAT BLIZZARD.
And Thousands of Victims' Are Expected to be Beard
Philadelphia complains of the influenza.
Says she has 2,000 cases. So far all are very
slight. Local physicians tear worse- will
come. (Some predict thousands' ot cases.
rsrxciu. telioivim to tb sistatcim
Philadelphia, December 22. Much
as the blizzard nearly two years ago swooped
down upon Philadelphia and all this section
of country, so has the influenza come. It is
infectious, but not contagious. A medical
expert said to-night there were over 2,000 cases
already in Philadelphia, and another very
high authority said that it had reached the
city within 24'hours, and had come with
such a rush, something like a cloud of dust,
that he expected within another day to see
hundreds and thousands attacked.
The epidemic in this country seems to be
somewhat mild, and has a duration of from
two to seven days. It is not limited to any
section of territory, bnt is raging severely
along the main line of the Pennsylvania
Eailroad. Fourteen of the nurses
in the Philadelphia hospital are
now in bed, three more having
succumbed early this morning. The condi
tion of those who were taken down yesterday
remains about the same. One or two ot the
nurses tried to get up to-day, but after a
little struggle thought it best to remain
where they were.
VEBY SLIGHT ATTACKS.
Two of the resident physicians have had
slight attacks, but they have kept at their
duties right along. Miss Marion E. Smith,
the chief nurse, is improving and expects to
be about to-morrow.
Dr. B. Glnrtin said that the epidemic was
in the air. and would alight wherever it
conld find a nest. It was a result, he
thought, of atmospherio conditions, and
attacks persons, whose nervous temperament
It is thonght by some that th disease
came with the fog that bas prevailed here
several days, and therefore that those
who live along or near the rivers
may be quickest attacked by it.
The theory accounts for its presence
in the Philadelphia Hospital which
is on the Schuylkill, bnt singularly
enough, not more than one or two patients
hate it, and in the University Hos
pital, near the river, there is not a
single case. Dr. James C. Wilson is
an acknowledged expert on influenza, hav
ing written extensively on the subject. He
was on the jnmp to-day, all day, and rnshed
as well in the evening. He bounced into
his office, where a reporter was awaiting his
return, and said:
TOO BUST TO TALK. ,
Fm so busy tbat I haven't time to talk. Got
to go right out again on an important engage
ment. Yes, I think tbe grip is here. I said on
Friday, wben tbere were only half a dozen cases
in New York or Boston on record, that if it did
come.lt wonld be witn a rusb. and there
would be a general affliction. I think it's come.
I have seen a ereat many cases to-day. Cannot
tell you about tbem now, but I'm quite confi
dent the epidemic is here! and in large num
bers. Dr. Cnrtin, another physician, who has a
dozen cases under his care, says he knows
ot fully 100 others. He said:
I think 1,000 cases is a low estimate, and
probably tbe number ia fully twice that,
throughout tbe city. It Is only a fewdsTsago,
sinoe it started in Russia, so tbat it haan't been
spread by contact or by the winds. Itcouldnt
nave reached here 'by this time. It Is
therefore, infections, and whenever It can find
arestine place it alights. Those persons wh3
are especially liable to be attacked are per
sons of high nervous temperament
and who are somewhat rnn down. It affects
the pulmonary organs, in some cases producing
congning and some pain. The temperature
goes up like a rocket, and comes down lust as
swift. Take tbe nurses at tbe Philadelphia
hospital. Some of them had a temperature of
103 degrees, and after it had subsided, it left a
prostration a dozen times more severe than the
prostration resultant upon chills and fever.
