Cincinnati, Jan. 31. Johnnie Ward,
the recognized leader in the Brotherhood re
Volt, and one of the best captains in Amer
ica, may ret be found in the Cincinnati
baseball team. President Albert L. John
son has not yet given up hopes of engaging
iiim, and has set about securing talent for
the Cincinnati club as tboHgh all the in
ternal dissensions concerning the club's
ownership had been settled. His action can
be token as a line that indicates that he and
Mr. Brush, of Indianapolis, have arrived at
an amicable arrangement. Of conrse, there
is a possibility that the deal may yet fail
through, but President Johnson's action
yesterday is a cood pointer. About noon
yesterday President Johnson sent the fol
lowing telegram to the captain of last year's
Brooklyn Brotherhood team:
John ard, ew 1 ork:
Have jciu completed negotiations with the
Brooklyn League team? If not I will give you
more money to play In Cincinnati than you were
ever paid before. A. L. Joiin&on.
So reply came to the telegram until last even
ing, justjietore President Johnson boarded the
train for home. It was short, but gate some
encouragement for the belier that V'ardinay
vet be lonnd with the Queen City League Club.
A. L. Johnson, Burncmoiise, Cincinnati, O.:
Have not jet sianed with .Brooklyn dab. Cer
tain nroniM and conditions must be fulfilled,
or I will nor join it. John M. Ward.
President Johnson was highly elated over the
reply, andbelore leaving. the city cent the f ol-
John Ward, New "i'oTK:
Your influence and money here will exceed
anything they can offer. The city is wild to
have you come. Watt till you get letter.
. . A. Ju. JOHNSON-
These telegrams will doubtless give Cincin
catians hope that the local club is bout to ac
quire what it has always needed. There is one
obstacle in the way, however. It is knonn that
the New York manacement want Ward to play
in Brooklyn, and it is possible they may reiuse
to release him to any other club. Anyhow,
Messrs. Johnson and Brush have shown consid
erable enterprise io trying to secure him. It is
a step in the tight direction, and will please the
A REAL HUSTLER.
President O'Neill Impresses the Cleveland
ers "With His Energetic Qualities A.
Deal That May Be Made Players for the
:srr.ciar. Tn.ronAM to thb diipatch.1
Cit.VE.Zaw. Jan."Sl. J. Palmer O'Neill is
the most -persistent amrindefatigable hustler
that ever walked into Cleveland baseball cir
cles in behalf of a Pittsbnrg club. If there is
anything that he left undone while in Cleve
land to help his onn team it is hard to see what
it was. He was leaning upon the railing in the
news stand of the Weddell House the other
evening, and in reply to the tjdery of "a" friend,
"I am ont for business. I am not going to re
turn home until 1 get just what I want, or find
that I cannot get it at all. I mean to have the
best and strongest club that ever represented
Pittbure, if I have to sign the last man the
day bef 01 e the championship race begins."
O'Neill came to Cleveland simply to get
Tebeau. Had he made a proposition to ex
change -Miller for Tebeau the deal would have
been made as quickly as the papers could have
been drawn up and the players consulted. He
wouldn't do that, but proposed anotherscheme
whereby for Pittsburg's aid in other channels.
Cleveland was to part with Tebeau providing
Cleveland cot it share in the shift. If that
plan goes through and there is much proba
bility of it both Cleveland and Pittsburg will
be mutually benefited and berth will start in the
pennant race with teams considerably stronger
than ever represented either city beiore.
IX Mack's case comes up before the National
Board and personal contracts are introduced
as evidence thai Mack belongs to any particu
lar organization, it is said that there is a per- -tonal
contract now in the possession of ex
Secretary Brunei, of the Plajers' League, be
tw een Mack and Hanlon which antedates all
others. From the best information obtainable
it looks as though Pittsburg's claim on Mack
was stronger than that of any other club and
stronger than its claim on Bierbauer. The
strict and literal construction of baseball law
would give Bierbauer to Pittsburg at that.
There is nn truth in the reports that Cleve
land is afterDelebauty, Gore, Radbourn, Crane
and a half a dozen others whose names have
been used in "fake" dispatches sent abroad.
The men Cleveland is most anxious to get are
all Westerners except one, and the chances at
the present writing are good to get them. The
Cleveland club has more good men to begin the
present season with than it ever had.
The unanimity with which the other League
clubs indorsed the stand of Piesideut Robiton
upon the sales system was not only gratifying
to that official, but evidence that the League is
much more willing to rid itself of apian that
has proven a costly experiment, than the play
ers Generally thought. The publication of the
letters was followed by aqneer protest from
a well-known player, who, while in conversation
with THE DlhPATCH correspondent, said that
the League maguateswere now coin;; to abolish
the sales system and prevent the players from
making any money out of the sales Of their re
leases. He characterized that as in harmony
with the usual griuding policy of the League.
A year ago this time the same player was mak
ing a great hue and cry about being sold like a
slave. Professional baseball players are ap
parently about as changeable as the chameleon.
Bcatin will goto Hot Springs and put in about
six weeks trying to get himsell into condition.
AL MEANS TO FIGHT.
The Cleveland Baseball magnate Declares
Himself on tho Cincinnati Matter.
Cleveland. O.. Jan. 2L Since the famous
f23,000 offer to At Johnson he has crown
cautious, and all propositions over the Cincin
nati club between himself and Jun T. Brush,
tho League bolder of the franchise there, will
be on paper. Johnson came from New York
last week and Monday sent the following notice
Cleveland. O., Jan. 28.
John T. Brush, Esq., Indianapolis, lnd.:
Dear Kip. I have been in consultation with
my lawyers ever since my return, and after a
very careful examination of the contract
signed by the eight Players' League clubs, and
also the constitution of ibat organization, to
gether witb the minutes taken of every meet
ing, they now advise me to state to youthat I.
as the President of the Cincinnati Baseball
Club, whose affairs have been en
trusted to my care by the other purchasers
of that organization, am ready to re
ceive any proposition made by cither
yourself, as a representative of the National
League, or any one else representing that or
ganization, which proposition I will be com.
pelled to first submit to the other purchasers
for their approval before I can give you any
decided answer. My object in pursuing this
course is that I may In no way forfeit my claim
against the different clubs and their individual
stockholders, whom I expect to bare to settle
If yon desire to meet me in Cincinnati I will
do so at any time tbis week, or you can com
municate with me lu writing here.
A L. Johnson.
L. A Russell. Johnson's Cleveland lawyer,
savs be cannot be shaken in bis Cincinnati po
sition, and that any damage done the property
in bis bands, for which the Players' League
people paid Aaron Sterne and Harry Sterne
20,000 iu cash and 520,000 in negotiable notes,
will be at Brush's charge. Of course nothing
can stop Brush hiring other grounds and an
other team for the city if he chooses, but be
cannot play against National League teams
lb ere, because Johnson holds the National
League franchise and will later along enjoin
the National League from making up a
schedule which doesn't include his club.

Baltimore, Jan. 3L Manager Barnle to

first baseman. The consideration was not made
known. With Healv, tho Orioles will have a'
quartet of good pitchers, the other three being

is wanted because of his batting qualities. Only

No Action Taken by the Magnates Assem

.praciAi. TELxanAK to inx dupatci!.!
Chicago. Jan. 3L That grand gathering of
baseball magnates in Chicago has proved a
failure Presidents Spalding, Robinson, Reach,
Brush and O'Neill, of the National League;
Presidents Thurman and Prince, of the Ameri
can Association, and presidents from minor or
ganizations were expected to enter into a-con-ference
that would raise a mighty cyclone in
the baseball world. Not even a breeze is per
ceptible. No formal conference was held, find
no official action of any kind baa
been taken. Thurman and Prince hare
not yet appeared. Reach came to look after a
real estate deal. He left town to-night. Brush
reported progress in the Cincinnati situation,
and then left for Indianapolis Thursday night.
Robinson will return to Cleveland to-morrow,
and O'Neill departs for Pittsbnrg Monday.
J. Palmer O'Neill was the happiest man in
the partv. From Nick Young came a fat en
velope. 'From the recesses of this, the Pitts
burger drew the contract of Lewis Bierbauer,
the great Eecond baseman. The Instrument
was duly anproved by the President of the
League. O'Neill also wasted some more
eloquence on Spalding and Anson in trying to
coax them into releasing Van Haltrcuand
Sued Them Again.
There are still ecboes of last year's baseball
failure. Yesterday the representatives of the
Denny estate levied on tho grounds of last

unpaid rent. Itwonld be interesting to know
where anything ukely to be worth half of the
amount claimed can be found in Recreation
Park. The policemen who were on duty at
Recreation Park have not yet been paid, and

Thought It Was Right
The announcement made in Tun Dispatch
of yesterday regarding the refusal of the A A
U. to reinstate Tener and Gray was the theme
of conversation in sporting circles. The gen
eral opinion was to the effect that the A. A. U.
would do rignt to make the reinstatements.
But one local Amateur pointed ont that why
application for the reinstatements had been
made was because such reinstatements had
been made in the past.
He Is Still Hustling.
tSFEClAL TELEOBAM TO THE DISPATCH. r
Chicago, Jan. 31. President J. P. O'Neill,
of the Pittsburg baseball club, and other mag
nates are still in the city. Nothing definite has
been done yet. O'Neill is hustling about with
strong hopes of securing Van Haltren or other
good Chicago players. There is a great diver
sity of opinion regarding Pittsburg's claim on
Bierbauer and the Central Board will settle the
matter next week.
WHEBE ABE THE JIIDDLEWEIGHTSi
Fat Pan-ell Still Wanting to Hear From the
It is extremely curious that amid all the aspir
ants Tar fame as middleweight pugilists, and
amid all the talk about this man and that man
who wants to fight for the middleweight cham
pionship, not one man in the country offers to
accept the challenge of Pat Farrell, of this
city. His challenge is to the effect that he will
fight any man in America at 158 pounds. Fitz
slmmons preferred, for a purse or a stake, or
both. To show that Farrell is not looking tor
fame and money that he cannot earn, be will
fight Fitzsimmons for any purse that may be
offered by any club and will bet 5,000 on the
outside, tbe winner to take every cent and the
loser nothing at all. If tbat is not a challenge
that means business and confidence, there
never was an honest challenge issued. If Fitz
Simmons can afford to ignore a challenge of
that kind the title of champion is not worth 1
But if Fitzsimmons declines to fight, Farrell
is anxious to hear from tbe other alleged
champions. Where is Reddy Gallagher, and
where is Carroll, of Brooklyn: Kessler, La
Blanche, Young Mitchell, and others? i arrell
will fight any one of them for anything at all.
Not one of these men have any right whatever
to say another word about fighting anybody
until they have declared themselves on Far

The Australian Makes Another Very Bold
Ofler to John I Sullivan.
fBT DUNLAF'S CABLE COMPART.
London, Jan. SL Charles Rowell, the En
glishman, who won tbe first six-day walking
match at Madison Square Garden, has issued a
challenge to the world for a 21-hours' go-as-you-please
match for 250. He prefers to walk
against Albert or Littlewood, and Dr. J. A
Dougherty, of Philadelphia, has accepted tbe
challenge in the name of the former.
Frank Slavin, the Australian champion
heavyweight, announces that be has accepted
the challenge said to have been made by John
L. Sullivan, to present the former with 5,000
if he stands up before the other for six rounds.
Slavin further offers to wage S5.000 to Sullivan's
f 10,000, that he, Slavin. will knock Sullivan out
in six rounds. Slavin says that be is willing to
fight in any city in the United States, and as
proof of his confidence in American fair play,
he will go alone.
Lord Lonsdale's Present.
The New Orleans prize fight choked up the
Fleet street thoroughfare on which the sport
ing newspapers take publication. Its result
was awaited by great crowds witb an interest in
prize fighting that has been curiously re
awakened by the recent prosecutions of glove
combatants. The Interest, of course, centered
on the Australian. Apropos Slavin and Mc
Aullffe desired to give Lord Lonsdale a present
in testimony of gratitude for what be did for
them in the way of procnrlng them counsel and
witnesses in those prosecutions. But what
emblem to select was a puzzle. Some one sug
gested a breastpin of a superbly embossed violet
in diamond setting. But Augustus Moore, the
new Benedick of the Hawk, carried the day in
suggesting a gorgeons inkstand. "Yet why
tbat 7'' asEed a friend. Tbe answer was: "An
inkstand is tbe most fitting emblem nowadays
of their profession, now that prize fighters busy
themselves more with ink slinging than with
tbe punching, which wai thought necessary in
days when judges thought it harmless." Spirit

McCaffrey Gets the Place.

of the Athletic Committee of the Manhattan
Athletic Club, told all inquirers at tbe club
house last evening that Dominick McCaffrey

certificate of a specialist that McCaffrey was in
perfect physical condition he was appointed.
McCaffrey will to-day take up his headquarters
at tbe club and at once commence the lorma

in all future club boxing tournaments.

The Ohio Champion Defeats Knntzich In the
Local Pool Match.
The pool match between J. N. Kuntzsch and
W..H. Clearwater was finished last evening in
th? Grand Central Rink in the presence of a
large audience. Tbe playing was good on .both
sides, but Clearwater demonstrated his superi
ority beyond a doubt. .'
Kutzsch started, off well, and in the first
tame pocketed all the 15 balls. He soon took
a good lead, but Clearwater settled down to
brilliant play, and was not long in going to the
front. He kept his good work up and eventu
ally scored the 200, and Knntzich scored 150 for
the night. The xcore for the three nights was:
Clearwater. 600; Kuntzsch, 428.
After the match was decided Mr. Kuntzsch
said: "If Clearwater can keep up the brill
iancy of play he has decided in Pittsburg he is
the best player in America, or the world, for
that ..matter. I have seen. Powers, -Do Oro,
Manning and all the stars, and bono of them
can play as Clearwater has played here. I
frankly admit that he is much superior to me."

match at Homewood Park yesterday after
noon ended somewhat unsatisfactorily. J.
Brookes and Jonathan Horsfield commenced

killed his third. Brookes missed his third,
and when Horsfield raised his gun for the

Ibe referee, Ernest Quinn, then took the
gun in charge, and on examination fonnd that
it contained about Vi ounces of shot. He then
counted a "dead biru" for Horsfield, but the

Kew Yobk, Jan. 3L A. very pretty
woman billed as Mile. Charcot, niece of the
famous Dr. Charcot, of Paris, and civing
hypnotic exhibitions in a dime museum on
Fourteenth street, turns out not to be Mile.
Charcot, but by her own confession is Eva
Powers, formerly of Corry, Pa., where she
was secretly married to the living skeleton
of Forepaugu's Circus. Her story is a curi
A few days ago the newspapers of New
York received nicely written invitations to
send representatives to a private hypnotic
exhibition to be given by Mile. Charcot,
niece of Dr. Charcot, of Paris, for the pur
pose of demonstrating to the medical pro
fession her wonderful power as a
hypnotist The invitations stated
that she had come to this countrv for the
purpose of explaining the advantages and
use of magnetic power in the treatment of
disease. The reporters saw nothing remark
able to describe in her hypnotic exhibition,
but Mile. Charcot was described as a woman
ot rare personal charms, clever and ex
ceptionally well read in her science. Other
hypnotists had, however, done all and more
than she had done, so there was nothing un
usual in her performance.
Admits the Deception.
She gave one exhibition and finally it was
suspected that she was not Mile. Charcot,
and on being cross-examined by one who
thought he knew her, admits that she is, or
was, Eva Powers, ot Corry, Pa., and is now
the wife of Al Beeves, a well-known banjo
player. She is hilled at the Museum as
"The Phenomenal Lady Hvpnotist, Mile.
Charcot, Who Conquers AH." This is the
story of her life as she has herself given it
to the reporters:
In 1880 Mile. Charcot, or Mrs. Al Eeeves,
or Mrs. Feralto, nee Eva Powers, was a 17-year-old
girl living in Corry, Pa. That
summer Forepaugh's circus came through
the town. With it was traveling
Eugene Feralto, one of the best known
livingskeletons. It was love at first sight
in tbeir case. They were married that same
afternoon. At night she returned home.
She concealed her marriage from her family.
Her husband continued traveling with the
show. That fall, after the circus disbanded,
she joined her husband in New York. They
spent the winter together, and when he
joined the show in the spring she went with
Fosed as a Beauty.
She did not exhibit that year, but in 1883
she succeeded Louise Montague as tbe $10,
000 beauty, and was again on the road with
Forepaugb. During the circus season of
1883 and 1884 she and her husband were
with the Barret show. She had learned
magic and performed as chief at
traction in the side show and was
also on occasion a Circassian
beauty. It was after one of these seasons
that she filled a short engagement at a mus
eum. No. 210 Bowery, doing magic. From
there she went up to a museum at Bristol,
and finally ended up at her husband's
home in Providence.
Just'out of the citv is Crescent Park.
There in 1885 and 1886 she and her husband
ran a small circus and museum. Feralto
bad all this time been growing more and
more dissipated. She finally took her com
pany "on the road" and left the drunken
freak to take care of himself. Later she ob
tained a divorce from him. .. f
Married Once More.
In 1887 she had settled down at Law
rence, Mass., running a little variety
theater, which was eminently successful. It
was there that she met her present husband,
Al Beeves, who is one of tbe best-known
banjo players in tbe country. They were
married two vears ago last summer. She
sold out her theater and invested the pro
ceeds in property at Hills Grove, B. L,
which is now her home.
Last summer she appeared at the Sea
Beach Palare at Coney Island. During the
i.iii mourns sne was at Uons Museum,
Eighth avenue, where she appeared as
"Ev.i the Mascotte," telling fortunes. She
left this place to make her American debut
as Mile. Charcot.
This is the story as told by Mile. Charcot
herself. Members of "the profession" who
were interviewed on the subject say that on
the Bowery she was known as Eva Powers,
and had a number of trained birds, which
she exhibited in the museum where her first
husband, Feralto, performed some very re
markable tricks for a skeleton, such as lift
ing a water barrel with his teeth. She is at
present associated with E. G. Johnson, "a
professor" of the art which she practices.
INDIAN WARS NOT OVER,
Turbulent Young Bucks Who Thirst for
Glory Surgeon Meeker Says the Beds
Are Unsettled and Won't Listen to the
Chiefs American Horse Shoots Twq
James Meeker, who was one of the 30
United States surgeons at Pine .Ridge dur
ing the recent Indian trouble, passed
through the city last evening on his way
Ease He is an old army doctor, and has
lived among the reds for years. In speak
ing of the Indians last night, he said: -"The
trouble is not over by a good deal. It is
time the settlers and ranchmen have gone
back to their farms and grazing
grounds, but they have little faith in
the Indians, protestations of peace.
Tbe reds are such a wild, turbulent set that
a tribe is liable to break loose at any time,
and commit theft and murder before stopped.
In this case the reds are not in the hands of
the chiefs, but their leaders must do what
the young bucks say, or they will be de
posed. When the delegation comes back
from Washington and the grand pow-wow
is held, if the tribes don't like what has
been done, then the trouble will begin. The
Indians are in a very unsettled state. Their
rations have been meager, and they want to
know for a certainty that the Government
intends to feed them.
"I can't speak too highly of Young-Man-Afraid-of-His-Horses.
He is about the only
one of the chiefs I would trust. He is a
powerful and level-headed young fellow,
and he did more in the Ust outbreak to pre
vent the spilling of blood than anv other
Indian. American Horse is a wild, harum
scarum young buck, and a few days before
the delegation left for Washington he shot
two of his men when tbey commenced the
ghost dance. This is the kind of a man he
is. He is cunning and is constantly on the
lookout Jor American Horse. The fact is,
you can expect an Indian war every ten
years. In this time a new lot of youpg
bucks are budding into manhood, and tbey
are thirsting for an opportunity to dis
tinguish themselves. Tbey make it by
stirring up strile, and the chiels who don't
accommodate them soon lose their influ
ence." Thad Stevens Won the Flag.
