GEJiEGAIi SPORTING .NEWS OP TI1E DAT
There is always plenty of ontdoor sports
iu and about Pittsburg on Christmas Day,
or as it is to-morrow a Christmas holiday.
One pleasing ieature is that the sports are
not so brutal and degrading as they used to
be; they are decidedly of a more enobling
character than they were only a few years
Among the manv events scheduled for
to-morrow is the lootball game at Exposi
tion Park between the Pittsburg club's
team aud the team from Chicajo. There U
considerable local interest in the content
and doubtless it will be one or the best seen
.. here. The teams are well matched. The
Chicago players will be here this morning
so as to get "a good rest before the contest
to-morrow afternoon. Secretary Kelly, of
tne Chicago team, writes that his men are
in good trim ana as iney nave only oeen
defeated once this season they are confident
of another victory to-morrow. The names
of the wavers were printed in last Sunday's
The Pittbnrg team will, according to all
account, be in first-class trim.
Another event that promises to be of
more than ordinary interest is the live
bird shoot at Glenwood, under the auspices
ot the Glenwood Sportsman's Association.
About 500 live pigeons have been secured
for th contests, and there will also be a
large number of blue rocks on hand. There
will be six sweepstake events at lire pig
eons and shooting will commence at 10
o'clock A. M.
Several local patrons of the gun will
leave the city this evening for Harrisburg
to witness the last of the five contests be
tween Elliott and Fultord. Their contest
here has made a very good impression and
a great amount of interest is centered in
their contest to-morrow.
There will also be several local club
ehoots of lesser note to-morrow and one or
two of the junior football teams intend
playing a game. If the weather is fine it is
expected that there will be a good turn out
at each event.
A Eachr lootball game is scheduled to
take place to-morrow morning at AVilkins
burg on the "W. A. A. grounds. The con
testing teams are rained the Crimson and
Black and the Pittsburg Bank Clerks. Tbe

Gebhard Won't Retire.
The report started some time ago that
i'red Gebhard had decided to retire from
the turf was given a denial yesterday by C
W. Aby, tbe manager of his California
ranch, who passed through the city on his
wav to New York. Far from retiring Mr.
Gebhard will race a larger stable than ever
next season, but it will be composed almost
entirely of horses of his bwn breeding.

In the new year with a carefully selected
band of trotters from the stud of Dr. J. "W.
Day. He states that there is plenty of
j mom for the right kind of track horses In
England and the Continent. Id discussing

j the old and new kind of sulky. That is to

I be two seconds, but a trotter of the 2:10
J class, with other qualities like the 2:30 iel-
iott, might draw a bicycle three or lour
seconds faster than the old style. It is
found that a driver, say, 30 ponnds over
weight will not retard the progress of a 2:30
horse to the same extent relatively as one
ten or more seconds faster. Hence it had
been the aim to hitch the champions to the
liehter kind of rigs commensurate with

Young Bloods right Klcht Lively
Hounds to Settle a Dispute.
Xetv York, Dec. 24. A prize fight
took place last night between two young
swells of this city, Charlie Wade and
Charlie Paiorius. They liave been ac
quaintances for some time and are conrting
sisters. An argument arose as to which
was the better man. Both feeling that
they thoroughly understood the art of self
defense, or rather manly art, they agreed to
settle the dispute iu a glove fight to a
There were only two men present outside
of the personal friends of the cmibatanK
The boys had no difficulty in selecting a
battle ground, and the fight took place in
the back parlor of a five-tory brown stone
hone, on the west side ot thecity, and iif'a
thickly populated neighborhood. Eight
spirited rounds were fought before Wade
succeeded in knocking his opponent out.
It was not done in a single blow, but from
the moment Wade saw he hud his roan
groggy he never let up nntil he had him
out for good. The last round lasted two
minutes and four -seconds. Joe Early, Cal
McCarthy's old manager, acted as referee.
May Cause a Kick.
iEVf Yobk, Dec. 24. The Coney Island
Athletic Clnb's big purse of 545.000 for Mc
Auliffe and Burge to fight for has already a
tendency to produce a kick upon the part
of Billy Myerand his backer, Alf Kennedy.
According to a disratcD from Chicago yes
terday, Myer says that he will not clinch a
match with Austin Gibbons, stating as a
reason that he wants to go h me to Jit.
Clements for his health. Alf Kennedy
seems to be more explicit. He says that it
is prettv certain Mver will not fight for the
purse offered. "Why," added Kennedy, j

545,000. surely Gibbons or Mver ought to be
worth more than 54,000 or 55,000."

Parkeesburg, "W. Ta., Dec. 24.
Smith, the lightweight pugilist, ho is to
fight Bowan, of Wheeling, Tuesday night,
and who is training here, is in excellent
condition. Tnese two pugilists have never
met personally and judge each other en
tirely by their records. Less than a month
ago Smith, at 125 pounds, defeated Bennett,
a Canadian, at Piqua,in a 10-round fight, Ben
nett weighing 143 pounds. Local sports
are taking a great interest-in the fight, and
it is probable that Smith -will carry a large
amount of Parkertburg money.

HOSMEE IN ENGLAND.
The American Professional Scalier , Very
Well Received by the Britishers.
In chronicling the arrival of George Hos
mer in England on December 8, the London
After a most pleasant voyage the famous
American sculler, George Hosmer, of Bos
ton, U. S. A., who left Jfew York on Sat
urday, November 26, at noon, by the steam
ship Manitoba, duly arrived at Tilbury
docks on AVednesday evening, at about 7
o'clock. It will be remembered that Hos
mer, by cablegram to the Sportsman some
little time since, challenged Bubear to row
on the Thames or Trne for the champion
ship of England, including tbe Sportsman
challenge cup, and stakes of 200 a side,
and on Bnbear wiring his acceptance for a
match in the middle of January next and
agreeing to allow 20 for expenses, the
Boston oarsman at once took his departure
for England. Yesterday evening Hosmer
paid a visit to the Sportsman office, accom-
fianied by Mr. J. J. Carr (his brother-in-aw),
Mr. Ernest Combs, Mr. W. G. King-
ham, and Jack Hifjgius, ex-champion of
x.ngianu, anu uuw uiiae oust 01 tne mng s
Arms, Market-hill, Shad well, an old friend
of Hosmer when he was over here in 18S0.
During his course of training, Hosmer will
tke up his residence at his former quarters
at Barnes, and, as before, intends boating
from genial Torn Green's establishment, ad
joining tbe railway bridge.
He has brought a Buddock built craft
with him for the race, and to-day Jack Hig
gins will arrange to have her conveyed from
Tilbury docks to Barnes,although,of course,
the American will not commence strict
training yet awhile. Hosmer looks won
derfully well in health and, with the excep
tion ot thickening out, is little changed
since his previous visit, when he took part
in the Hop Bitters regatta, 12 years ago. In
the course of the interview Hosmer ar
ranged ith our representative to meet
George Bubear at Mr. John Hoodless', the
Maltman and Shovel, Broadway, Hammer
smith, on Monday evening next at 8 o'clock
prompt, for the purpose of drawing up the
articles of agreement, staking the first de-
posit, and making all the necessary arrange
ments in connection with the match. Sub
sequently the party adjourned to the Al
bert Club, and had an interview with the
well-known sportsman and supporter of
roning, Mr. W. J. Iunes, who, of course,
sa a good deal of Ilosmer during Ilia for
mer visit to the old country. No donbt the
American will indulge in a spin or two on
the river before the end of the week.
CHERRY DIAMOND IN TROUBLE.
Desperate Efforts Being Hade to Tide the
3L A,C. Over Difficulties.
New 1'ork, Dec 24. i'perial. Officers
of the Mauhattan Athletic Club are mat
ing a desperate eflort to tide the Cherry
Diamond .over its present financial straits.
Unless arrangements can be made hich
will put the club on a paying basis in the
near fntureU looks as if the organization
would have to "go under."
Seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars
is the amount of the Manhattan Athletio
Club's indebtedness, according to Secretary
C. C. Hughes. Tins includes a'lirst mort
gage of 5400,000 given in 1889 and due in
1897, and second mortgage bonds due in
1894 lor 250,000 to Walton Storm and
George W. Carr as trustees. All the sec
ond mortgage bond, however, were not dis
posed of, about 564,000 of them remaining
unsold. The balance of tbe club's debt is
due to holdcrs.of the scrip issued by the
club last ycar.to tradesmen.
Against this indebtedness the club claims
assets of 51,100,000 tor the house and site
nt Forty-fifth street and Madison avenue.
The ground ou which the building stands
cost 5120,000. and tbe building itselt about
5800,000. The property, however, the offi
cers of the club say, has increased greatly
in value during the last three years.
There are two plans which the officers
have in view. The first is to sell the club's
equity in the property under an agreement
on the part of the buyer to sell it back to
the cluS in three years. The price which
the club wants for the equity is 5350,000.
Wall street has been pretty thoroughly
canvassed with this object in view, but so
far without success. The resale condition
is not liked by capitalists.
The other plan is to provide for a reduc
tion in the interest paid on the bonded
indebtedness. At present tbe club
pays interest at the rate of six per cent It
is thought that a first mortgage ot 5650,000
at five per cent interest can be executed,
and that then members ot the club will sub
scribe for second mortgage bonds to .the
amount of 5100,000 also at five percent.
The club would then be able to pay the
most pressing ot its open accounts and
WQuldTednccthe amount paid in interest
by about 56,00a
The receipts from the dues, 550 a year,
for the first ten months of the present year
were 5117,000, an increase of 515,000 over
the same period last year. The house busi
ness of the club has also increased by about
56.500 over that ot last year.
Before the last regular meeting of the
club a plan was suggested for the, payment
of the annual dues in one lump in January
instead of the semi-annual payment of 525.
The plan was killed, however, without
coming before the meeting, tbe difficulty in
the opinion of members being that while it
might be ot temporary benefit, the club
would soon find itself in worse condition
than ever if the present extravagant man

Tbe Prosecution W1U Walt Till This Is
Determined Before Proceeding "With
the Trial The Prisoner Had Burned a
Suspicious Dress Itefore Arrest.
TAUKTOX, Mass., Dec, 24. There is no
intimation yet in regard to the time of ar
raigning Miss Borden for the murder ot her
father and stepmother. It is asserted that
the Government is in no hurry to have tle
case presented, because of a belief that
the woman is insane, or, if not so now, that
she will be before the trial. It she is in
sane, the enormous expense of a trial will
be avoided and the ends of iustice practi
cally attained. If she is placed on trial,
the only important fact to be explained V ill
be in regard to the dres, and lor the first
time the details of that nflatr are now made
public. Hiss liussell and the two Hisses
Borden were in a room on the third or
fourth day after the murders. Lizzie went
out and then came into the room again,
holding in her hand a dress which she
pointed to, at the same time saying:
"They are making so much luss over
things about here that I guess I will burn

spilled some red paint."
She passed out into the kitchen and put
the dress into the fire. When the officers,
in their search, found a piece of this dress
in the ashes,'tbey sought to learn what it
meant, and it was for this reason that the
New Bedford purchase was so closely
examined into. Miss Bussell sii'd
nothing about this mstter at the first hear
ing, nor did Emma Borden, but when Miss
liussell was asked point blank in regard to
the occurrence the day before the grand
jury reported, she told the story.
Bridget Sullivan was shown the piece,
and said that Lizzie wore a dress like that
on the morning ot the murder. Emma said,
in explanation ot the a&air, that it was a
general custom in the family to burn up
their clothes when they were of no further
CENTRAL PARK'S GIFT.
A Baby Lion Arrives and Assistant Superin
tendent Barns Is Happy.
New Yobk, Dec 24. Ssecial The
winter house of the lions at Central Park is
j at present an object of decided interest. It
was closed to-day and none but the keepers
were allowed to enter. Occasionally Assist
ant Superintendent Burns would tap softly
on the door, bolts, bars and chains would
rattle and the keeper peer cautiously out
The door would then be opened wide
enough to permit Mr. Burns to squeeze in,
after which it would be tightly
closed. Presently Mr. Burns would emerge,
wearing a mysterious smile on his face and
before the door was shut he usually gave
some whispered instructions to the keener.
H Ail these mvsterious actions excited com
ment, but after considerable waiting and
watching it was finally discovered that the
cause of all the excitement was the arrival
ot a cub lion. The cub, of which Jack and
Alice are the parents, was born Friday
evening and was apparently doing as well
as could be expected under the circum
stances, "Tbereason we are so careful," said Mr.
Burns, "is because we are very anxious to
raise this cub. It is a difficult matter to
bring up the young of animals in captivity.
Alice has had two previous litters, but not
one of them is alive. The first litter, con
sisting of three cubs, came in 18U0, aud
Alice evidently did not like their looks, for
she ate all three of them. Alice's second
litter came in 1891. This also consisted of
three cubs, but they were stillborn. We
are very sanguine that this cub will pull
through, as Alice seems quite lond of it"
No one has yet got close enough to the
cage to get a good look at the cub. When
anyone comes nearer than Alice thinks is
proper she immediately picks up tbe cub in
her month and holds it until the intrnder
withdraws. Then she lays it tenderly down

HIS MANNER COOL AND aSUCCESSFCIi
BY CABLK TO Tire.nlSPATCIl.
London, Dec 24. Copyright The po
lice throughout England, are industriously
earching for a man whom they describe as 45
years old, pf gentlemanly bearing, with a
dark, heavy moustache, fresh complexion,
and wearing a dark fashionable overcoat,
drab trousers, dark. Bowler hat and brown
kid gloves. This interesting individual
was seen strolling about the grounds of
Leigh court. Lady Miles' Somersetshire
mansion, Saturday and Sunday afternoon,
and was supposed by the servants to be a
Monday evening this gentlemanly person
looted Lady Miles' bedroqm of 30,000
worth of jewelry, and then vanished into
space The police believe that he walked
across the conntry to a station on the main
line of the Great Western Kailway, caught
an express train to London, and proceeded
thence without delay to Amsterdam, where
he disposed of his booty, and is now enjoy
ing himself in Paris.
A Bobber of Sixty Honses.
The same man has robbed within the past
five years at least 60 suburban and country
mansions, and hat never been caught. There
is no doubt that he is the man who paid a
firing visit to the rural retreat of Henry
White, Secretary of the United States lega
tion, about two years ago, and carried baok
with him Mrs. White jewels.
This man is a most daring operator, of
consummate nerve and exquisite tact, hie
has been in several tight places, but has
always pulled throngb. His uiodr.i
operandi varies bnt slightir, and people
with country houses and jewels have fre
quentlv read of his exploits, but they seem
incapable of taking warning by the fate of
The man never trusts to chance. He in
variably studies with care the scene of his
contemplated operations, and plans before
hand the manner and direction of his re
treat. If there are many men' 'n the house
he fixes a wire on a cord across the main
path in the grounds, too thin to be seen in
the darkness of the night, but strong
"enough to trip over excited pursuers.
..Various Means of Avoiding Arrest.
Sometimes he fixes up the ball door in
such a manner that it can be opened only
with extreme- difficulty and delav, and he
invariably fastens from the inside any room
he may have to enter, but he never goes
into a room from a window which he could
not reach from the ground below.
He invariably enters the house in the
evening when the .family are at dinner
through an upper window which he
reaches by a ladder which he rarely fails to
find about the grounds pr in some outbuild
ing. It undisturbed be takes the trouble
to conceal as far as possible all traces of his
visit, unfastens the door and removes the
ladder out of sight before making a final
farewell all of course with'the object of
delaying discovery and thereby decreasing
tbe chances of his being closely pursued.
The police lave frequently inserted warn
ings in tbe newspapers and have taken the
trouble to draw up a model set of precau
tions calculated to frustrate this accom
plished scoundrel's designs, but without
avail against tbe apparently inherent care
lessness of owners of valuable property.

Dewall pulled him out, aud then went

dropped unconscious. An ambulance was

He Had Shaped His Ways Wrong in the
Beginning An Operation Failed to
Bring rtelter-An Open Blb'e and a Re

Philadelphia, Dec 24. Special
Jarvis W. Hand, a country boy without a
relative in this city, committed suicide to
day by shooting himself through the head.
The fatal shot was fired in his fourth-story
room in a boarding house, at 1G32 Cherry
street, shortly before noon.
Young Hand's home was way up among
the woods in Aroostook county, Maine. He
was but 18 yeafrs of age, and on October 15
came to this city, nominally to take a course
of instruction at the Philadelphia Dental
College, on Seventeenth street, above
Cherry, .but quite ns much in the hope that
a surgical operation and change of
occupation would benefit him, as he
was suffering from a trouble that had nearly
undermined him physically and mentally.
The operation was performed four days ago,
and since then the boy suffered greatly Iron
melancholia. To-day the revolver was
lying beside him, while on the bureau was

nearly ended that the Imperial authorities
report a continuance of active foreign efforts
unnecessary, the National Belief Commit

of Iowa, to the activitywhich resulted in
sending to Bussia a ship freighted with
stores from the corn producing States. The
work of the national committee is fully set
forth, and also the important action taken
by the New York Chamber of Commerce.
It is difficult to detemnine the amount oi

Tho Forjn of Catarrh That Affecta Coal
Miners, Stonecutters, Brassworkers,
Nailors.Sawmakers, Etc. Mr. Patrick
Although chronic catarrh in this climate
is nearly always caused bj neglected colds,
occasionally the exciting cause Is traced to
irritating particles of dnst-and exposure to
foul air, as of coal mines, factories, etc
This form of catarrh is dne to particles of
nne dust bclne carried in tho air, inspired,
inhaled from the mote-laden atmosphere in
shops, mines, lactorios, etc, and to which
stonecutters, cutlors. coal miners, brass
workers, nailers, sawmakors, etc., are lia
ble. This at times so affects the system that the

Tim following statement of Mr. Patrick

cold weather and-the frequent accessions of
colds upon a person whose system is peculi

"My trouble has existed for several years."
says Mr. O'Connell, "brought on by working

occupation, that of a miner.
"During the summer I wonld usually feel
middling well, up to this last summer, but as
soon as winter set In, I wonld begin tocoazh.
It was a tight, racking coush,y that would
make me sore and ache all over. During the
