HE NAILS A FALSE EEPOBT.
Fred Carroll and Secretary Scandrett
Return, Much Pleased.
THE SPORTING HEWS OP THE DAY
John M. "Ward and his counsel deem the
threats of the Rational League only bluffs.

Scandrett returns and states that big legal

about Brotherhood successes.
RFECUI. TEXXOKAX TO THE DISPATCH. '
2f E York, January 31. There is not
really that .halo of glory surrounding the
Rational League people that they lead the
public to think there is. The resolve of the
Rational League magnates, of course, caused
considerable stir among baseball people.
There are, as lawyers say here, some good
points for the Rational League in Judge
O'Brien's decision, bnt the general opinion
is that all future cases in New York courts, at
least against baseball players, will fall through
as far as salts against their future perform
ances as ball players is concerned.
MR. SARD'S OPINION-.
The representative of The Dispatch met
John M. Ward to-day and Mr. Ward, daring a
conversation, said: "Why I'm always glad to
meet a Dispatch man, and Til tell you my
honest opinion of the legal conflict. Our coun
sel tell us that we need not be afraid. The
threat of the League is only a 'bluff1 and is
made only to intimidate players. Of course.
League magnates appear to take consolation
oat of the decision, but in private they grin as
if taking a bitter pill. We have scored a vic
tory, and the decision means that we are all
There was no agreement made bv counsel for
both sides to argue the case on February 8, as
stated In all the papers here, and the case will
probably not be argued again before March.
The defendant. Ward, filed an amendment to
the answer made by plaintiffs' attorneys to
Judge O'Brien's decision. It is generally
thought that the case will drop as the days and
THE OLD LEAGUE PEOPLE.
Your correspondent saw one or two Na
tional League officials, and they talk quite dif
ferently to Mr. Ward. They say that there
never was a clearer case of damages than the
present case. Mr. Day says: "Until Judge
O'Brien gave his opinion we didn't know where
we were; now we know that we can sue and col
lect damages, and certainlv we'll do it. There
never was a clearer case. I have not met a
lawyer who says that we have not an almost
absolutely clear case for damages, and Judge
uunen evidently minks tne same, uii, yes,
the old League will be all right. We'll have the
ten dubs, and they'll be good ones."

Robinson's Slcnlne With the Pitlsbnrg
Players tbe Last Straw.
ISPEC1A1. TELEGRAM TO TIIE PI6PATC11.1
St. Louis. January 31. The wreck of the
famous Browns was completed this week, when
Robinson attached his signature to a Pitts
burs Players' contract. Chamberlain and Mc
Carthy are the only members of the team left,
with the exception of Ramsey, Stivetts and
Duffee, who have been with the team
only a short time. Cincinnati will probably
get Chamberlain, as Stern has offered Von der
Ahe a gooa round sum for the pitcher's release
and the ex-boss is inclined to take it. Cham
berlain and McCarthy are both extremely sorry
now that they signed with the St, Louis club.
Chamberlain had been fined 200 for insubordi
nation, and when the season closed. Von der
Abe asked bim to name his terms. Chamber
lain named a good advance over his
last season's salary and stipulated that the
fine should be stricken off. He did not believe
the terms would be accepted, and was greatly
surprised when Von der Ahe said: "Here is
your contract; I'll take jon." Chamberlain
could not very well back out, so he signed.
With McCarthy it was different. He refused
to sign last year, until April, and did not tare
as well as the men who signed in November.
This year be determined to get in early, so
when be was asked to name his figure, the
terms were accepted and he promptly signed.
Von der Ahe has 14 men under contract now.
ana it is said that Chief" Roseman will cap
tain the team. Among the untried plavcrs
signed are: Darrah, Harry Fuller, Kane, Van
derbrook, Adams, who, with Pat Sweeny, Rose
man and Gittingcr, cannot fail but make a
mournful contrast to the crew piloted by

Secretary Scnndrett Returns and Talks
Abont tbe Local Suit.
Secretary Scandrett returned from New York
smilinc The first words he said to even a rail
road porter were: "Well, we've settled them."
This was a startler, because everybody knew
that Ward bad beeu victorious. The very sen
sible secretary, however, said:
"Now we never thought we had a good claim
of damages until a man like Judge O'Brien
said we had. Everybody in New York who
knows anything about law and baseball says
that Jndge O'Brien's decision means that while
there was no necessity for an injunction there
were ample reasons for damages when the case
was fully argued. Our great point, that as to
the reserve rule, was admitted by Jndge
O'Brien. That's all we want. In a trial we'll
soon prove what is wanting and would in this
Instance baa we thought that the evidence we
can give was necessary. Now we have a claim
on every ball player who signed with us last
year and every man who assisted these men to
break their engagements with us. We will
certainly prosecute our claims, because Jndge
O'Brien has already said that it is a case where
the League club can claim damages. We In
tend, as far as I know, to sue at least Carroll
Knehneand Galvln. Kcwe and White are in
another State and we will not trouble them
just now, but they will not get away from us.

there will certainly be ten of us. Washington

staying qualities than at this meeting. They'll

ing. It was Carroll's first trip on a baseball
mission, and under tbe circumstances be did
welL He 6igned Robinson for Pittsburg, as we
all know, and also signed Brennan for Cleve
land. Regarding Burns, he said:
Now, we all thought that Burns was all
right, but he is a gentleman, and because of
that I think we'll get him. When I saw him be
told me that be had signed with Kansas Citv
to play in the American Association. That
club is not going into the Associa
tion, but Burns wanted to bavo an
honest and mutual understanding with
President Speas, of the Kansas City
CluD. before making any new arrangements.
I told him he was right, and hat the new
League did not want, under any circumstances,
to sign a man who had already signed anv
other contract. Mr. Burns is an intelligent
man and knows his position. All I can say is
tbat I think he will play with ns, and If he
does, no moral or legal law will be violated."
Carroll went on to say that in St. Loais and
Chicago the Brotherhood enthusiasm was
high. He said: "There is no fear of the Chi
cago people. That city is all Brotherhood."

Hanover's name appears among the nomina

Coney Island and Brooklyn Clubs, and the
fact has aroused a great deal of conjecture as
to whether be could oe considered a dangerous
candidate. When Hanover ceased racing in
August last, at Westchester, It was because be
was in a very bad way. He bad a badly bowed
tendon, and it was generally given out that he
had run bis last race, and the Dwycrs were
ready to sell him for stud duty. Mr. Haggin
did not want him, and it Is well-known that
there was some sort of a proposition made to
Major Thomas to take nim, but it fell through.

'Yes, nut so is every horse as long as there is
a chance of his standing. Owners and trainers,
too, will stick to a horse as long as he has two
legs left. Beside, the Dwyers bad always a
weather eye to unloading their crack horses for
stud purposes. To leave a horse out would
make him dead to the world. But by nominat

Warren' Old Rival Defeats Jack Dntnn
In n Lively Contest.
tSFECTU. TELEOHAM TO Till OISFATCU.!
Troy, January 31. Some time ago a fight to
a finish was arranged between Jack Dugan, of
this city, and Bobby Haight. of Hudson, light
weights. The latter several years ago fought
Tommy Warren ten rounds and did not have
much tne worst of it at the finish. Dugan and
Haight met at Albia last Monday night, when
the police stopped the mill.
At an early hour this morning the battle
occurred in the ballroom of a hotel on the
Mechanicsville road. From 100 to 150 sports
paid 5 each and climbed all over one another
for an opportunity to see it. Skin tight gloves
were used and Marquis of Queensberry rules
governed. It was apparent from the outset
that Dugan, who seemed trained too fine, had
little or no chance. Haight did nearly all the
leading and pounded Dugan all over the ring.
The Trojan's blows seemed to have no force,
but he stood his ground gamely and took bis
medicine like a man. At the beginning of the
fourth round he was very groggy. Haight
Sent him to the floor with a hot right-hander,
and as he regained his feet and toed the mark
be was put to sleep by a stinging blow on the
jugular. Haight has hardly a stratch. bnt
Dugan shows the effects uf severe punishment.

One of the Best iUalos Ever Decided Around
rSFECtAI. TELEOBAK TO THI DISFATCH.l
New- York, January 31. One of the best
mains of game cocks over decided in this vicin
ity was fought in a couutry bouse in West
chester county, early this morning, between
Northern and Southern birds, tbe North win
ning by a score of 7 to 2. Tbe main, which was
witnessed by 150 persons, was for 8200 a battle.
and $2,000 on the main, and it was expected that
10,000 Honld change hands at tbe pit side be
fore the last pair had settled their differences.
The anxiety of the partisans of the Northern
fowls spoiled the betting almost from the start,
as they were continually offering odds: and,
when the North won the first three battles off
the reel, it was almost impossible to place a
dollar on the feathered gladiators from the
.Empire State, except at odds of $100 to $80.
The Southern birds were Irom Washington,
Virginia and Baltimore, and were a miscel
laneous lot, comprising red quills, blackhackles
and brass basks, while the Northern represen
tatives were of tbe choicest strains of Long
Island fowl, rare old stock that had done battle
successfully for 25 years, for pit honors, in all
parts of America.

fSFCIAX TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.'
Washington. January 3L President
Young returned from the League meeting
empty-banded, so far as contracts are con
cerned, but with a basketful of new ideas and
recommendations obtained in his conversation
with the magnates of baseball in this country.
Walker Hewitt maae himself solid atthe meet
ing, which is described as a sort of family gath
ering, by announcing that lie had signed' seven
good players for tbe ensuing season, and bad
given a rousing commission and carte blanche
to Ted Sullivan, with a view to securing a team
which would properly represent the capital in
the national game.
One of the most enthusiastic members pres
ent was President Brush, of Indianapolis
who did not hesitate to declare it to be bis con
viction that he has the strongest team in the
League ranks for IS90, and with which he hopes
to carry off the pennant from the metropolis.
THE H1TCI1 CONTINUES.
Some Authorltlea State That Prlddy and
McClelland Must Get Another Track.
Director Lemon notified John Qninn, the
backer of McClelland, yesterday, that the Ex
position track would not be in a condition for
a race on March 1. Galvm is superintending
the work of the erection of the grand stand
and laying out ot grounds.
Director Lemon's definite information caused
extreme disappointment, because it is not
likely tbat any other track will be agreed upon.
This hitch is a pity, and certainly with a little
effort and goodwill toward other sport than
baseball the track could be gotten all right if
vi ater does not interfere. Th e race is a big and
imDortant one, and if Pittsburg cannot pro
duce a track for such an event, it is very un
fortunate for tbe city's reputation as a promi
nent sporting town.

At Phillipsbnrg the hovel vacated by an

old coins to the neighbors. Great popular
indignation is expressed because of tbe at
tempt to secure a pardon for the Nicelys.
ISPXCIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Piiil.i.ipsburg, Pa., January 31. For
many years there has lived here an old Ger
man named Gottleib Miller. His place of
abode was a hovel that he kept in such a
filthy condition that the neighbors avoided
it. The old man lived alone, and, so far as
known, had no relatives in this country.
Miller had no intimate acquaintances, as
none of his countrymen seemed desirous of
conversing with him on account of the
peculiar German he spoke and his utter in
difference in learning to speak English.
For many years Miller was the sexton of
the little cemetery here, but a Bbort time
ago he gave it up on account of his infirmities
caused by old age. A few mornings ago people
living in the neighborhood of Miller's hovel
were aroused by an intolerable stench arising
from the old man's hut. Investigation proved
that Gottlieb bad done something unprece
dented in the history of his residence here
washed bis clothes and hung them up before a
blazing fire to dry. From these the offensive
ana sickening odor arose. The attention of
the Board of Health was called to the old
man's miserable condition and he was taken to
tbe County Home, where he is now. It is said
that since his removal to tbo Home it has
been learned that Miller's wife is in tbe insti
tution, and has been there for many years.
Frank Todd, a young laboring man of tbis
place, purchased the hovel of Miller's, which
is the oldest building here, having been built
in 1832, and tore it down. While doing so. the
neighbors say, he found a box of money. Upon
this point, however, Todd is naturally reticent.
Although Todd stoutly refuses to inform his
neighbors as to the extent and importance of
his find, he has shown some of his friends sev
eral coins which bear an ancient date. The
general impression is that the old man had con
siderable money hidden about his hat.

A General Indignation Became of Their Ap
plication for Pardon.
rSPF-CIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DI8PATCII.I
Somerset, January 3L Since the publica
tion ot the application for a pardon for the
Nicely brothers great Indignation prevails
throughout the county. It was generally un
derstood that no application would be made
after tbe Supreme Court bad refused to grant
them a new trial. In fact, the murderers' at
torneys had given up all bope of saving their
necks. Tbe murder was committed just a year
ago. The "Sicelys were given a fair and impar
tial trial, being defended by the best legal tal
ent in the county.
The action of tbe Pardon Board is awaited
with great interest. A commutation of sen
tence would give general dissatisfaction, as the
murder of Farmer Umberger was one of the
most deliberate ever committed, and tho ma
jority of the people in tbe county want it
avenged by the banging of tbe perpetrators.
The friends of the murderers are doing their
best to save their necks.

tfTECIAL TELEQRAM TO THE DIRPATCir.l
McKeesport, Pa., January 3L The now
thoroughly muddled postofSce affair is creat
ing much excitement here. Tbe publication
of tbe alleged charges against Captain W. E.
Thompson created a very important topic for
general conversation, and many people who
were not in favor of Mr. Thompson for the
office are now pronounced Thompson men.
"All's fair in politics," bnt in this case they
say it is wrong to do as those who are alleged
to have preferred charges against Captain
Thompson. Charles Harrison, son of V". E.
Harrison, says tbe report tbat he preferred
charges is false. Captain Stone is quiet, and
says that he feels that there is a chance for
him, and many are of tho same opinion. An
examiner is expected to arrive here from
Washington in a short time to investigate the
reports sent to Washington, npon which Mr.
Wanamaker bases his reasons for tabling tbe

SPECIAL TELEQBAM TO THE DISPATCH. I
Watnesburg, January 81. In less than a
montb, unless the Pardon Board interfere,
George Clark and Zach Taylor, who were con
victed of murdering Drover McCausland, of
Allegheny City, will suffer the death penalty.
As yet the Sheriff has made no preparations
for executing tbese murderers, and it is begin
ning to look as though they might possibly
escape the gallows.
They take things philosophically and show
no signs of weakening or making a confession
of tho crime for which they were convicted.
Ben Clark, who was also convicted for tbe
same murder, has been granted a new trial,
but just when or where it will take place has
not been settled upon.

UNIONTOWN, January 31, Editor O. J. Btur
gis, one of the defeated candidates for the
postmastershlp. to-day, In his paper, the Even
ing Standard, expressed himself concerning
the influence brought to bear on the adminis
tration to accomplish the appointment of Pat
terson, as follows:
"The contest was referred some time ago
to Senator Quay, who, after consideration,
filed at the Postofflce Department bis writ
ten indorsement of tbe application of
Mr. Stureis, and urged Postmaster General
Wanamaker to make the appointment at once.
This was in November. For some reason not
then given by Mr. Wanamaker be failed to
make bis recommendation to the President.
In the course of some weeks It was learned
tbat bis refusal to take action after tbe cus
tomary Indorsement had been made was due to
the interference of Mr. Frick, of Pittsburg.
Mr. Frick has no interest whatever in the
Uniontown postofflce and knew none of the ap
plicants, but through tho efforts of a friend or
two in Uniontown he was enlisted in
behalf of Mr. Patterson and asked
Mr. Wanamaker to appoint bim. When
be learned that Senator Quay had in
dorsed another candidate lie interested
himself anew, and demanded his request be
granted. This Mr. Wanamaker did, and a
private telegram received from Washington to
day states tbat Postmaster General Wana
maker says tbe appointment was made on a
full understanding with Mr. Quay. This, too,
in face of the fact tbat Senator Quay tele
graphed to a friend of Mr. Sturgis here while
the "delegation" was still In Washington that
the appointment would be made shortly, and
that Senator Quay also stated to another
friend in Washington the day before he left
that Mr. Sturgis would be appointed. It is
only fair to the friends of Mr. Sturgis that
tbis much should be made public in order tbat
it may be known by what abhorront outside
interference the appointment was wrested
from him after having been duly awarded
CLOSE OF THE CONTEST.
A Vote Will Probably be Beached Either
To-Day or on Monday.
."SPECIAL TBLXOBAM TO THK DISPATCH. I
Charleston, January 3L It was tbe under
standing that Chairman Kee, of the Investigat
ing Committee, was to close the debate on the
Gubernatorial contest to-day, and there was
therefore, a good deal of surprise among tbe
members of tbe minority as well as on tbe part
of spectators when it was announced tbat
Senators Price and Flournoy would ad
dress the Joint Assembly before Chairman
Kee would take the floor to close. Senator
Flournoy was the first to speak, and devoted
himself mainly to the colored voters of Mercer
and McDowell counties. He said tbat in 1S83
there were but ten colored residents of Mercer
county and in 1847 but one colored man resided
in McDowell. To-day;in the latter(county there
are 1,500 colored men. and be charged that the
colonization bad been systematic and
for political purposes. He said that the
colored population of the mining region
was a floating one, the men coming and
going every few months, and he doubted if
there were more than a few scores of legal col
ored voters in the counties he was considering.
The Republicans had said that more than one
third of the colored voters of the counties had
voted, and this be considered clinched his argu
ment that they were migratory in their habits,
and few were entitled to tbe rigbt of suffrage.
He was followed by Senator Price, and this
evening Chairman Kee spoke. It is hoped a
vote will be reached to-morrow, and the matter
settled, but it may go over nntil Monday.
W. H. Morris, an attorney of this city, has
brought suit for S30.000 damages against Gen
eral Gnff, contestee in tbe election ca?e. Goff
challenged Morris' vote, claiming he was of un
sound mind. Tbe charge was not sustained, and
suit was brought. Morris claims his business
was damaged to tbat amount by tbe libel.

him one day tbat ho would hang tbat nothing
would save him; that he had been down the

Wileesbabre, January 3L The bottom of
a portion of the town of Plains, about four
miles from here, dropped out to-day, and
with it three single honses and a doable
blocs, causing consternation among tbe
tenants and excitement in the town.
The settling, it is thought, is not
yet at an end. For a week past premonitory
signs ot the cave-in have been noticed by expe
rienced miners, and one of tbem made it his
business to warn tbe inhabitants of
tbese bonses to Keep low fires in
their stoves and make preparation
to take a drop down. They concerned
themselves but little, as cave-ins are of com
mon occurrence in this region, and while the
women of the warned bouses were preparing
their noonday meal tbe earth began to settle,
and in a few moments the bouses were almost
standing on end.
The fires in the stoves were quickly extin
guished. The danger now lies in an extension
of the cave-in, which is altogether probable
from present indications. A few feet from tbe
scene of the disaster and in a direct line with it
is the cemetery, and fears are entertained
that this will yield to tbe pressure of the
squeeze. The earth Is working in tbat direc
tion. Tbe Catholic Church and parsonage that
were wrecked a few weeks ago by a cave-In are
within a short distance of the scene. These
cave-ins are caused by the extravagant robbing
of pillars in the mines.
