GENERAL SPOKTIXG NEWS OP THE DAI
Rivalry among the local association foot
I ball clubs is once more coming to the front,
and as a resnlt there is likely to be a few
lively contests for championship honors.
The following communication from John
Matthews, of the Pittsburg Club, shows
that the feeling is already strong. Secre
tary Matthews says in his letter to this
Sporting Editor Dispatch :
Sir Having received many com
munications from secretaries of
local association football teams rela
tive to our willingness to play one or a
series of matches, will you please allow me
space Id your reliable paper to say that the
Pittsburg Football Club, of which I am sec
retary, is open to play any. or all, of associa
tion football clubs in the country.
But it is to be distinctly understood tbat
the winners take the whole of the receipts,
tl.e losers to pay rent of ground, printing,
police and all other necestary expenses.
This is particularly directed to the McDon
ald Football Club, who defeated the winners
of the Western Pennsylvania championship
last Saturday, at McDonald. We claim by
virtue of our victory over the celebrated
Franklords, of Philadelphia, to be as strong
as any team in the United States, and we are
willlnjr to defend at any time our claims to
the title of championship of the "passing"
game. Tours truly,
'Secretary Pittsburg Football Club.
Of course the letter contains a very defi
nite challenge, and has something like a
business ring about it Certainly the Mc-
juonaia team are a good lot ot plavers, and
their defeat of the Hew Castle team last
Saturday proves the fact.
Secretary Matthews yesterday received a
letter from James C. Breckinridge, Secre
tary of the Toronto, Canada, association
team. Mr. Breckinridge says the following
players will represent Canada against the
Pittsburgs on Thanksgiving Day: Goal,
Porter; lull backs, Breckinridge and Stew'
art; half backs, Forrester, Goldie and Mo
Arthui; forwards, Duncan, Langelbach
Murray, Govenloch and McDonald.
The "team are the champions of Canada,
and about one-half of them represented
Canada against England last year.
THE TALE TEA.H.
List or the Flayers Selected to Play in the
' the Bis Games.
Xew Haves, Cox k.. Kov. r. Thirteen can
didates for positions on the Tale football
eleven bavo gone to a special training table
at tbe Xew Haven House. This is an en
tirely new move, and with only two excep
tions, afford an opportunity to gauge ex
jactly the men who will make up the team
Iwhich will lace tne Harvard and Princeton
I The namts of the men who were assigned
fetts at the new training table are: Hiiikle,
;Jeft end; Winter, left tackle: Sanford, left
iruard; Stillman, center: Kifcok and McCrea,
-Tight guards: Wallace, right tackle; Green
wayynd Cox, right end; Captain McCor
FUc quarter back; Laurie Bliss, right half
back: Graves, lets half back, and. Batter
worth, full back. Thus there seems to be
no doubt whatever in the make-up of Yale's
eleven In big games, except in two places,
right end and right guard, and in these there
are only two candidates left. The other
candidates for the team will remain at the
old training table.
Yale Money Wanted.
A local pation of football called at this
office last evening and left $50 -which he is
willing to bet against 6) that Princeton de
feats Yale next Thanksgiving Day. Tho
bet can be made nt any time by calling at
Thx Dispatch office.
A BLOW FOE THE SP0BTS.
One of Chicago's Judges Decides the Pool
Chicago, Nov. L Special. By a decision
, rendeicd this afternoon by Judge Collins,
' the Gaifield Park Club sustains a fatal blow,
and if the language or t'' decision can be
applied as stronglyas tin C wrt delivered!!,
it will prove to bo the death knell of all
horse racing in the State or Illinois. The
i law or 1887 relating to pool selling on races,
with a proviso that it shall be legal to do
,v the same within regular race track inclos
uros, is emphatically declared to be uncon
stitutional. The decision dealt with the
" "whole problem or racing, to wit: Contests
for purses, etc, between horses on all
, tracks, and wasnot confined to the tnclosure
' of complainants so tint the Garfield Park
sports who were present gained some solace
from the statement or attorneys that every
race track in Illinois could be closed under

I its great w orld's Fair meeting cannot be

English Authorities Know little About the
Big: Bace Horse Deal.
Lohdojt. Nov. L The representative ot
the Associated Press has been trying to con
firm the report that Wm. McDonougb.ot Cal
ifornia, has bongbt the celebrated Btallion
Ormonde, paying $150,000 .for him. As yet he
has found nothing tbat wonld enable him to
either positively affirm or deny the report.
The sporting papers and the usial authori
ties In suoh matters know nothing beyond
the statement cabled here that Mr. McDon
oush bad bought the horse. The officials at
Tattersalls refuse to confirm or deny the re
port, but from their ill-concealed annoyance
at the publication of the statement itfs evi
dent that they are conducting the negotia
tions, and tbat the business is.not yet com
pleted. One or the officials when questioned
about the matter said:
"I do not see what business It Is of the
public's." The Evening Ncics says tbat in
spite of his alleged roaring Ormonde's get is
so speedv that the Callforntan, If be pur
chases the stallion, will get a good bargain.
English buyers, it adds, cannot complain.
After haggling for a couple of years they
deserve to lose the horse.
final Blow to Garfield.
Chicago, Nor. L Judge Collins, this after
noon, denied a petition of the Garfield Park
Club for an Injunction restraining tho Chi
cago police from interfering with Its West
side track. This, it is said, is the final blow
to the track. The decision, appniently, will
be fatal to the Hawthorne track: as veil as
Garfield. The Illinois law of 1SS7. providing
tbat pool selling is legal if carried on within
regular race track lnclosures, is emphati
cally declared to be unconstitutional. If
sustained by the Supreme Court, Judge Col
lins' decision seems tn mean tho closing of
every race track in Illinois. The Garfield
Park people, however, have a new track
well under way Just across the State line in
A Great Turf Season.
"Billy" Martin, the well-known book
maker, returned from the .East yesterday,
lie stated tbat the racing season had been
the best in American turf historv. He
thinks that Lamplighter is the best S year
old horse that has ever been In America
and tbat there is little likelihood of a race
between him and Tammany.

The League President Shows "Why the 12
Club System Must Stand.
WASHiifQToa; Nov. L "All talk about sep
arate baseDall organization In the East and
West respectively," said President: Nick
Young In an interview to-day, -is tho
sheerest nonsense for a year at least, and
for reasons which are readily apparent.
First and foremost the present 12 clubs
League is bound by the strongest of consid
erations Indorsement on notes to pay the
indebtedness incurred br the amalgamation
of the National League and the American
Association of Professional Baseball Players.
Instead of being ahead at the end of the
present season, as was expected, as a matter
of fact there is an apparent deficit of up
ward of $10,000. Upward of $95,000 was as
sumed as a responsibility at the outetof
this season, but the calculations as to re
ceipts haven't come up to expectation and
it is quite likely tbat some of our notes will
have to be renewed. After we have dis
posed of all important question of finances
a proposition may be made tn benefit the
national game by havlug an Eastern and
Western association, but there is no imme
diate prospect of such a thing.
"In any event there will never be a war
between the East and West, as predicted,
and for a very good reason. Heretofore
representatives of the American Associa
tion and the National League have been at
swords points because they were not ac
quainted with each other and the method of
doing business. Charges were made on
both sides of unfair dealing and discrimina
tion, but Just as soon as the magnates or tbe
two organizations came together and un
derstood each other all bicketings and dis
gutes were ended. Now they are united in
uilding ud baseball and will do everything
that lies In their power to bring about such
a result as evidence of this Doing shown in
their eagerness to meet all obligations in

the' championship games between Boston

Difference Between Plant and Fruit.
Srawberries are fruit; so are tomatoes,
melons and cucumbers. One suggested dis
tinction between a vegetable and a fruit is
that the latter may be eaten raw, while
the former must be cooked, but that doesn't
bold always. Technically, a fruit incloses
the seeds of tjie plant and is matured over
ground; plant growth matured underground
is a vegetable.

Fjinpathetic Affair on Account of
AN ODD DISPUTE AT J0HNBT0WK
New Orleans, Nov. L SpectdL The
'Worklngmen's Amalgamated Council,
which Includes nearly all the labor unions
of New Orleans, 61 in number, gave notice
to-day that unless the merchants and boss
draymen would grant the request oi the
Labor Council for a committee to effect a
settlement of the strike of the teamsters,
loaders, etc., a general strike would be
The strike of the teamsters .has been
umder way for several days. -The Labor
Council intervened in their behalf, and
tried to get a settlement, but the merchants
would not confer, and as a last resource it
has ordered a general strike lor to-morrow
of all the members of the union. There
are 15,000 to 20,000 in number, organized in
61 different nnions or trades.
The strike will completely paralyze New
Orleans to-morrow. All the street car
drivers will strike, stopping all street cars
throughout the city. The mates, roust
abouts and other steamboat hands will stop
the steamboats, the newspapers will be leit
without printers, the dry goods and retail
stores wunout cierKS, aua tue luuuuuca
and factories, almost without exception,
without hands. It will be complete stag
nation. The general strike was opposed by many
members of the union, but the latter has
become very strong in the last few months,
and the extreme members carried every
thing. It isexpected by the general strike
to turn the attention of the whole commun
ity to the grievances of the teamsters and
to compel the merchants against whom they
have struck to treat with the union for a
settlement of the differences. Most of the
teamsters and loaders are negroes, whereas
the other unions, which are striking out of
sympathy with them, are composed almost
without exception of white men.
A STRANGE STRIKE.
Cambria Ball Loaders Befnse to Refund
Wages Said to Be Excessive.
Johnstown, Nov. L Special. When
the night force of rail loaders came out to
work at the Cambria Co.'s mill last night
they were notified that an adjustment would
have to be made in their wages. It was I
said that the men had received more money
than they were entitled to, and they were
asked to refund the amounts charged azainst
each of them. The men refused to pay
back any of the money they had received as
wages. When the day turn came on the
same proposition was made. Another coun
cil and another refusal to refund, and then
the men quit work.
General Manager Price says the men
have been getting more money than they
earned and the company proposed to put a
stop to it, Thev had got this money, he
said, by the under foreman and the time
keepers turning in reports of more time
than the men had put in, adding tbat it was
highly improbable that the men received
this money in ignorance of the fact that
they were being overpaid.
A committee from the men nowout had a
conference with Price this morning, but the
strike continues. Neither the men nor the
manager will state definitely what amount
each man is asked to pay back to the com
pany, but it is stated br others of the mill
men tbat CO of the railloaders are required
to return $100 each. To-night Manager
Price said all he wanted now was for the
matter to stop where it'ls.
CHANGED LITTLE BY YEAB3.
Greek Language Has Preserved Its
Form Better Than Any Other.
In accordance with the repeated testimo
nies of such distinguished scholars as Profs.
Jebb, Blakie Constantinides, the late Rev.
E. M. Geldart, and others, to the Greek
language alone must be awarded the honor
of being still, in all its features, what it
was 2,000 years ago. Ancient Greek has
but one modern representative, which is
spoken with comparatively insignificant
variations throughout Turkey, Greece, and
Whoever Is thoroughly conversant with
modern Greek will find no more difficulty
in seading the Greek Fathers and the New
Testament than an Englishman of the nine
teenth century finds in understanding
Spenser. The passage from the New Testa
orSeptuaglnt to Xenophon is compartively
easier than from Spenser to 'Chaucer; and
from Xenophon to Thucydides, from Thucy
dides to the Tragedians, and from them to
Herodotus, and from Herodotus to Homer,
is far more simple than would be the some
what analogous transition in English from
Chaucer to Piers Plowman, from Piers
Plowman to Layamon and Ormin, and from
them to the Anslo-Saxon of King Alfred,
and from the Saxon of King Alfred to the
Gothic of TJInlas. Indeed, the change
which has passed upon the Greek language
since Homer's age is so very much slighter
than that Inch English has undergone in
the far shorter period Intervening between
the times of the Saxon Kings and the pres
ent reign, tbat there are whole lines of Ho
mer which would scarcely require the al
teration of a word to convert tnem into idi
omatic modern Greek.
The chief difference now remaining be
tween old and modern Greek is one that ex
ists between old and modern languages
generally; tbe old is synthetic, the modern
is analytic. Thus it hat been the unique
destiny of the Greek language to have had,
from prehistoric times down to our own, an

Two Bold Robbers Success folly Bold Up a
Kansas Bank Official.
Speabvtlle, Kan., Nov. L About 2
o'clock this afternoon two men entered the
Ford county bank at this place and with
drawn revolvers robbed Cashier Baird of
51,700. In their haste the robbers over
looked another large sun in the vault. A
confederate held the -horses while the two
robbers entered the bank. -
As the robbers ran out of the bank and
jumped into their saddles,: a party of
hunters came along and learning of the
robbery opened fire on them. About 15
shots were exchanged but no one was hurt
on either side and the highwaymen escaped.
Buying a Blind Man. '
A queer business transaction has just come
to light in Paris. A man was arrested for
buying a blind man. It seems that the first
owner of the blind man secured him from
an asylum and nsed to lead him along in

a financial success, so he sold his blind man
to another speculator, who was soon dis
gusted. The unfortunate man was deserted
on the streets by his purchaser, and in that
way the police became acquainted with the

WANAMAKES IS C0HFIDEHT.
Postmaster General Firmly Believes That
Harrison Will Be Re-Elected.
Postmaster General Wanamaker passed
through Pittsburg yesterday on his way to
Indiana where he will make a lew speeches
in the interest of Harrison and Eeid.
"I am confident of Republican success,"
Mr. Wanamaker said. "This lias been a cam
paign or education. Harrison's administra
tion has been safe and conservative and the
people generally do not see the necessity
of a change. They are afraid of the machine
politicians and consequently they are afraid
of the Democrats.
"The loss of Mr. Harrison's personal ef
forts on account of his41 affliction has had its
effect on the campaign but the people will
not take advantage of a calamity and the
President's absence from the contest will
not therefore be hurtful to the party.
"I am satisfied New York will be carried
by the Republicans. Connecticut I think
will also be carried by the Republicans,
but I am a little afraid'of New Jersey.
DEM0CBATS LEAVE T0WH.

Nearly all the Democratic clubs in Pitts

Stevenson demonstration at Wheeling, W.
Ya., last night. The disagreeable weather
here thinned the ranks of the clubs, but all
the Baltimore and .Ohio trains for Wheel

with enthusiastic Democrats.
Chairman Brennen, J. M. Guffey and
other leading Democrats of Pittsburg went
to Wheeling in a special car to witness
last night's demonstration and to invite the
Democratic candidate for Vice President to
come to Allegheny county before the close

Association, created quite a stir in Rome
this morning. When the mills closed
down yesterday and went into tbe hands of
a receiver, owing tbe men between 53,500
and 54,000, Jack King, President of the
Merchants' National Bank, promised to
pay tbe men at i o'clock in the evening,
but failed to do it.
This morning the enraged employes
crowded in the bank and with threats de
manded their money. Mr. King was not
in. The men then gathered a larger crowd
ot their friends and held an iudignation
meeting, at which it was resolved to wait
only until to-morrow morning for their pay.
Failure then would cause trouble.

The Norwegian Lofoden Islands
Famous Summer Resort.
Would it surprise you to hear that the
Lofoden Islands, off Norway, are on their
south side a terrestrial paradise? The Guif
stream nurins them all the year round, and
the consumptives ot the world enrich them
by taking their codliver oil. The codliver
oil boss is Peter Muller, who, I was told,
employs 70j000 people in fisheries, factories,
bottling, packing, and so on. His daughters
were the greatest catches in tbe Scandi
navian marriage market. They married ac
cording to tastes', and happily. One of
them chose from her many suitors a Captain
ot the Norweign Navy, who" left it on his
marriage and became a distinguished marine
There are pastoral Edens on the ledges of
the Lofoden Mountains. I never saw more
grace in combination with the sort of craggy
severity that one meets with on the west
coast of Scotland, with this difference, how
ever, that the Hebrides are as though paint
ed in Indian ink, whereas the coloring in
summer in the Lofoden scenery is indes
cribably splendid. I shall not easily forget
how all new to it were lifted out of them
selves by the sail through Raft Sund.

The Electrical Review.
It was but a plain mincral'spring, but the
cups that the patients drank from were fast
ened by a brass chain to an iron bar which
inclosed the mouth of the bubbling spring.
You were prevented from coming too close
by another circular iron railing about eight
feet across. Tbe ground about the spring
was naturally moist, and it was either this
ground or the iron which was one of the
ends of an open electric circuit. Tbe cup
held by the chain was the other end. '
Tbe person drinking simply completed
the circuit through the body, and when he
had finished the attendant kindly and im
mediately removed the cup from his hand.
The drinkers always felt that "delightful
tingling sensation," and rejoiced that tbey
bad found the fountain of youth. Some
imagined they even felt the new blood
coursing through their veins. A small in
duction coil ingeniously concealed and con
nected with the cup and railing was a cheap
method for producing tbat "invigorating

High winds, rain or (If cold enough) snow, south
