GENERAL EPOETING KEWS OP THE DAT
TTTTCtXt, mtOUK TO THR DKrXTCII.l
Chicago, Sot. 17. The League re
turned its anneal meeting at noon. There
was a lull attendance. Boutine business
occupied the attention of the magnates
nearly all afternoon. "When the League
took a recess at 6:15 o'clock President
Young announced that little had been done.
The constitution bad been read from be
ginning to end and amended in certain
parts. The principal changes were made in
sections 45 and 55. The first provided that
tied or drawn game or games prevented by
rain should be r-layed off the succeeding
day. As the section now reads, postponed
games cannot be played off on the first trip,
but they must be played off, if such a thing
Is possible, on the second trip. If an open
date follows it will constitute part of the
series, provided the teams have postponed
games to play. Hereafter it will not be
necessary for clubs to furnish the secretary
with diagrams of their grounds. The rule
regulating the playing of games when a
visiting team wanted to leave on an early
train was amended, and both clubs can now
arrange things to suit themselves.
A Committee on Boles.
Brush, Von der Eorst and Soden were ap
pointed a Committee on Bales and will re
port at the spring meeting. Zact Phelps, of
Louisville, was re-elected attorney of the
league, and George IV. Howe, late treasurer
of tho Cleveland club, was made an honorary
member of the League. The Board of
Ulrectnrs was choen by lot. Tho names
were drawn out of Von der Ahe's stovepipe
hat. All but one of the present bnard were
retained, the new member being Kewl orir,
wliioh replaces Washington. Tlie directors
are Hart, Chlcaao: brush, Cincinnati; Von
der Ahe. St Louis; Von der Hoi st, Baltimore,
and Soden, Boston. Kew York's representa
tive has not been named. Tills leads to the
story that the League is worried as to the
ownership of the New York club. It Is
alleged that nobody can be found who will
admit that tlie clnb has a financial head.
John B. Day sits in the meetinc as Gotham's
representative, but rumor lias itthat John Is
dead broke; that he does not posvs a dollar;
that the Sew York club owes $30,000 with no
visible revenue; that the team has players
nnd that Patrick Powers la here on a prose
lyting mission to induce some kind hearted
magnate to hand over a few star players to
New York without monetary consideration.
The cental Patrick Is here, hut his mission,
if mission he had, has been fruitless. Said a
magnate who withheld the use of his name:
Sew Tork Club's Difficulties.
"It's funny about New York. Last year J.
"Walter Spalding, W. II. Conant and F. A.
Abell footed all the bills. The season was a
failure, and the backers are so disgusted
that they hare dropped out. Day is all
light, but he hasn't got a red. There is no
owner that the League knows of, and that is
why New York's representative on the
3oard was not named. If New York wants
E layers it will have to hustle for them. The
eague will not present it with any of its
star play era. If Gotham wants to remain in
the push It must stir its stumps."'
There are rumors or trades in the air.
Tony Mnllane, judging from reports, is the
most sought for player in tho country.
Every clnb is after him. Fir-t Chicazo
wanted him to become a Colt.but Brash has
so larrerued to entertain any proposition
for his exchange. New York Is willing to
swap Busle tor the Count. Pittsburg wants
to tradeoff Baldwin tor him. Washington
will give Killen and one or two players to
boot, and even that wily dodger, Chris Von
der Ahe, is after him. Mullane said to-dav:
"Chicago U my home and I pre er to play
here, but I cannot go azainst the wishes ot
the League. I will play hall wnercverlgo
and think that next year I will be decidedly
The Lonisviilo. contingent denies the story
tl.at Pteffer will be traded for Richardson
and will becnuica Giant. Accoiding to the
i-tory New York wrs to give up its n.uch he
loved Buck Ewing for Danny Bichardson,
nliowas In turn to be traded lor Pfeffor.
The League has let tho player question
severely alone. The .salary matter will be
allowed to adjust itself. Every club will
stand on its own bottom In that respect.
The magnates decided to have no divided
championship next feason and no double
games. It is likely the pitcher will be set
back so as to increase the hitting. The
meeting adjourned to meet next Match.

New York, Nov. 17. The New York
Clearing House gave an informal reception
to-day to William Lidderdale, who was
presiding governor of the Bank of England
during the financial crisis of 1890-9L
Practically every bank in the city was rep
resented. The principal reaion for Mr. Lidderdale
exciting so much interest among our finan
cial men at this time was his course in con
nection with the troubles of the Barings.
The President of the National Bank and
other presidents said of the matter to-day
that few persons realized how much this
country and the whole civilized world owed
to Mr. 'Lidderdale. "He proved to be just
the man in the right place," said Mr. Ives.
"But for bis promptness and courage in
forming the syndicate to tide the Barings
over their difficulties a panic wonld have
resulted that would have been most dis
astrous to the mercantile interests of the

Solomon A Ruben last night throw open
the doors of their mammoth retail establish
ment on Smithflrld and Diamond streets to
an anxious and expectant crowd. Lone; be
fore the time set for the grand opening, the
street was crowded from curb to curb with
peoDle clamoiing for admittance. At 7:30
o'clock the clerks were la their places, the
guards were stationed and everything was
inieadluess. "Vlien the doors opened and
to the enchanting; strains of the Second
Brisade Baud, ths grand maroh Detcun, it
was indeed an auspicious opening for one of
Pittsburg's youngest but lamest stores.
The decorations were of the finest. Rioh
banks of roses and chrysanthemums were
tastefully set off by a profuse setting of
lanrel leaves and palms, which gave an
artistic and pleasins appearance. The vast
crowds as they surged through the aisles,
stacked high on each side with shelves and
cases ot goods, and up the stairs were ad
mirably handled by the guards posted at
There was no confusion, and the people
were constantly giving expression to excla
mations of surprise at the complete order
and arrangements of the many parts of the
vast estaniishment. During the evening
the proprietors were the recipients of con
stant congratulations from their many
friends. The managers of the various de
partments were in full dress and most
graciously received their visitors.
The Ceremonies of tho Evening.
The programme was opened by Mr. Bry,
manager of the cloak department. In a few
well-chosen words, he welcomed the people
to the new quarters of the firm, and intio
dnoed Joseph Stadtfeld, who delivered the
dedicatory speeoh. He paid a glowing trib
ute to the worth of the two members of the
firm, who, from a small beginning, had
built up .a magnificent trade and
now employed hundreds of clerks.
Uastcr JIarkus K. Solomon, aged 7
years, then nresented the keys with
the following words: "As with this key ad
mittance gained into this bouse friends
young and old may fortune, joy and bliss
untold their entrance, make and there re
main." During the evening the Second
Brigade Pand. under the leadership of Prof.
P. D.innhardt, rendered an excellent
musicul programme. AS a whole. It wa9 an
entirely successful opening, and the firm
may well congratulate themselves on tho
hearty welcome accorded them by the
lntha huildinir of this emporium the latest
improvements havo been introduced, and
it is without question the most complete
storeroom possible to construct. Theieare
88,100 square teet of floor. The building is
equipped with a double plant of electrio
motors and engines lor lighting and heating
purposes. Space has been economized in
the nrrnngeiucnts of the soveral parts on
all the floors. The finishing is in polished
oak, and is something new in the art of fur
nishing storerooms. The electro-pneumatlo
cash drawer system has been put it. This
makes it possible to transact business
with increased facility and without any
delay. This Is the first firm to put this
system into practical operatlon,and with one
exception Is the only firm using It in, this
country. There will be three rapid elevators
to handle the passengers and tako goods to
all the floors in the building. On the seo
ond floor there Is a ladies' waiting room ele
The Saving Bank System
Introduced by W. A. Forbes is a distinct
feature of the establishment, and promises
to grow in great favor with tne people. But
to name the parts and point out advantages
of all tlie departments would requlro col
umns, and they must be seen to be fully un
derstood. But it can bo stated that noltlier
trouble nor expense has beenspaied in mak
ing it a complete stoic, where almost any
thing can be Dought,
