The enthusiasm is not confined to Balti

the reports from along the entire line of
travel through Maryland. At Cumberland
on the train bearing the "heroes" this
morning, the entire city seemed to have
turned out to welcome them. The major of
that plaoe headed a delegation of business
men and waited on Manager Han Ion and the
team to thank the Oriole for the great vic
tory they had Jtcooaijtlifibcd. Manager Han
lou was compelled here to make a short speech,
in which he hoped that the birds -.vould be
able to play a game in Cumberland after "the
team toas beaten the Giants in the Temple
cup series." This announcement was re
oeived with tremendous sheering.
x Tne reception at Hagerstown and all other
points along the journey through Maryland

MANAGER JIAXLOS'S SPEECH.
Other toasts wore offered and responded to
by various profossional men of the city, nfter
which Manager Unnlon, in a manly manner,
responded to "Tho Temple Series." Ho said:
"Gentlemen I thank you for this warm
greeting. I need not tell you how deeply I
am touched by this hearty demonstration of
your good will. I can only say that this is
the proudest moment in all my long baseball
career. We have worked hard' all the season
aud have strained every nerve to bring to
Baltimore that glorious emblem of victory,
which, to me and to the hardest working
team ever orgnniaed, is the proudest trophy
in the land.
"It has been ahard fight all through, and in
the last few weeks the strain has been almost
unendurable. Yet all tho labor, all the
worry and anxiety I count as nothing to
night. I am more than repaid by the knowl
edge that our efforts have been so highly ap
preciated by this warm-hearted Baltimoro
public Against all opposition, in tho face of
the fiercest competition ever known in the
history of baseball, after a hard light to the
bitter end, the championship has been brought
to Baltimore. It has been fairly and squarely
won by sheer merit, and no envious, snarling
critic can belittle it.
"The glory of thi6 achievement I bespeak
first for the faithful men who have worn tho
Oriole uniform on so many hot fields. I am
glad of this opportunity to speak my opinion
of them. Never has it been my good fortune
to lie associated with such a body of intelli
gent men. Their whole soul has been in tho
light from start to finish, and all the glory is
theirs. That I ha e been permitted to act as
their leader and manager I esteem an honor
and privilege. I consider the present Balti
more team the finest body of baseball players
ever gotten together. They are ball players
and gentlemen, every one of them.
HIGH TKA1SE FOR VON DKR HOKST.
"To bring suoh a body of men together has
been no easy task, and right hero I wish to
say its aooofBpHsnment has been made pos
sible by the good sense and reliability of the
gentleman to whom Baltimore is more largely
indebted than to any other for its present
proud position in the baseball world, a gen
tleman who has steadily supported the na
tional game througn thick and thin, in times
of prosperity and adversity. His name 1
know is on every man's lins Harry Yon der
"And now, gentlemen, allow me to thank
you again, and In closing let me hazard a
prophecy that the champions of '91 will be
tbe champions of '95."
When he had finished there were storms of
applause, which lasted for several minutes.
The banquet lasted until an early hour iu the
morning. It was a fitting finale to the
events of the day.
To-morrow a benefit performance by the
Fannie Kiee Company will be tendered tbe
Orioles at Ford's Theater, the entire receipts
to be divided equally among the players.
This will be followed in the evening nt Harris'
Academy of Music by another benefit by
"The Ensign" Company, during which the
popular subscription will also be divided
among tho players.

That Is Why the Orioles U'on the Pennant,
Says Manager Hanlon.-
"Baltimore Champions," in large black let
ters on big strips of canvas was the dovice
which was strung along the sides of a Pullman
sleeping car attached to the Chicago limited,
whieh arrived at the Baltimore and Ohio de
pot at 2:10 yesterday afternoon.
In the car wore the members of the victori
ous Oriole Baseball team, accompanied by n
score of their friends. The party left the
Windy City in the special yesterday morning
and stopped over in Washington on their way
The Pullman was side-tracked and the
players repaired to Emrioh's restaurant, op
posite the depot, wheio dinner was served,
and the prospects for winning the Temple cup
series were disc ussed. The pr6sence of the
champions attracted a crowd of sports and
small boys, who surrounded tho restaurant
and watched eagerly and waited patiently to
catch a glimpse of "de fellers what won do
After dinner the Baltimoreau3 enjoyed a
view of the sights of the Capital and at 5:30
departed on a special train for the Monumen
tal City amidst the cheers of several hundred
local patrons of the game.
Previous to their departure, Messrs Dvren
forth A Co., tailors, fitted out the team in
full-dress suits for tho Oriole City banquet.
In speaking of the team's work during the
season of '94, Manager Hanlon said:
"I'm sure the boys are glad it's all over.
It has bet u hard work from 6tart to finish,
but that's the only way to honestly win the
pennant. Outsiders may say what they please
about jealousies among my men, butl venture
to say that among all the other clubs in the
League none have displayed a more harmo
nious or united spirit than the members of
the Baltimore team. The club has lacked the
detrimental factional feuds which havo hin
dered the playing of several of tho clubs in
the first division.
"The champions determined to win the
pennant this year, and knowing that this
could only be done by the co-operation of
every man on the team, they put aside any
petty personal feeling wbichmuy havo existed,
and played to win nil the time. The success
of the team cannot be attributed to any one
man, but the praise must be given to every
player. Our pitchers have all been in excel
lent form, and have been supported by what
I consider tho best infield "in the country.
Too much cannot be said of tho work of the
outfield. They all played together and, ns I
said before, to win.
"Do we expect to win tho Temple cup?
Naturally I would say yes. But. of course, it
is impossible to foretell the result of that
series. The New York club played a good
game during the latter part of tho season,
and while we expect to have to play ball in
the cup contest, I anticipate victory for the
When asked for an expression of opinion
regarding certain statements in New York pa
pers that the pitchers of other clubs were
paid by Baltimore to pitch harder balls to
Boston and New York players than to the
iiaitimore team. Manager Hanlon said:
"There is not a word of truth in that state
ment. Tbe New York papers are evidently
sore because the Giants failed to win tho
pennant. I think that is a sufficient denial
from me. I expect to havo nearly all the old
players enrolled for next season, and there
seemstobeno reason why we should not
make as good a showing then as now."

PLANNED TO ROB A TRAIN

GOOD WORK OP A DETECTIVE
He Joined the Gang and Was Finally Made a
Confidant All Thoir Schemes Confided to
Him Ono of the Outlaws Declared Ho
Was Anxious to Outdo Jesse James.
St. Josnrn, Mo., Oct. 2. Leo Jones and
"scur-fuced" Cbarloy Frlzzell were arrested
hero to-day, charged with conspiracy to rob
tho Chicago, Bock Island and Pacific train.
Tho pair have been under surveillance
some time, it being known that they
with others were planning a train robbery.
Tho conspirators were betrnyea by one of
thoir own band. A week ago it was planned
to rob a west bound Eock Island train, and to
blow it up if necessary. U.'hl3 was postponed
and last night finally abandoned, the would
be robbers learning that the police were aftor
them. Their arrest followed and others are
Since the attempt made about n month ago
to rob the Denver express the olficors of tho
road have been looking for the men con
cerned in the enterprise. Suspicion pointed
to "a long-haired crook from the Indian Ter
ritory" ns the prime mover. Chiof Special
Agent Martin H. Flynn, o tho Bock Island,
went to St. Joseph and was not long In iden
tifying the "long-haired crook" with Jones,
who had recently arrived from tho Indian
Territory, and carried his character in his
face. He was a blustering bully, with no vis
ible means of support, and with a habit of
frequenting saloons and associating with des
Among his associates wns Lee Frlzzell and
a man named Callahan, who a few days nfter
tho arrival of the railroad officer was arrcstod
by the local officials on a charge of burglary
and was jodged in jail. It was learned that
tho trio had instigated tho former attempt
and that Jones and Frizzcll had not abandoned
hopes of ultimately gaining possession of tho
treasuro in tho express aud mail cars.
AFTER THE lONO-HAlRED CEOOK.
Special Agent Flynn returned to Chicago,
nnd on September 9 a meeting was hold in
the office of General Manager W. I. Allen, at
which wore present General Superintendent
Dunlap, General Manager FJynn, Special
Agent Fiynn, and Detective C. C. Barsnard.
As a result of the meeting Barshard the fol
lowing day took a train fonSt. Joseph, and
In the" guise of a Chicago crook went to the
Buffalo Head saloon, a resort much fre
quented by Jones, Frizzell, and similar char
acters. It was fair week and the town was well
patronized by gamblers and other adven
turers from the larger cities. Barshard
found it an easy matter to gain access to the
society circle in which Jones was a shining
light, and when on September 17 Flynn. in
the guise of a Chicago gambler out of luck,
arrived at the Buffalo Head Barshard was in
a position to introduce him.
"Barshard was right in it," said Flynn,
speaking of the episode. He was at the bead
of the table and Fred Jones was at the foot.
"Frizzell was there and half a dozen ex-con
victs were also at the board at which Bars
'Jones was a character. He drank freely
and talked openly of crime. He was a hide
ous looking object, sir feet tall, broad shoul
dered nnd of powerful plrysiquo. His long
black hair, hanging from beneath a broad
brimmed sombrero, did not conceal any part
of the most repulsive human face I ever saw.
While in a fit, Jones fell into a camp fire and
his face was burned almost out of human
HOrED TO OUTDO JESSE JASIEP.
"He was one whose criminal proclivities
could not have been concealed. Ho was
thirty-five years old and possessed of a liberal
education. An accomplished artist, he would
not work, and openly boasted that ho would
yet outdo the exploits of Jesse James. Jones
had served two terms in the penitentiary for
counterfeiting, but had escaped all punish
ment for a long list of violations of the State
laws and seemed to wander at will through
the Indian Territory, Kansas and Missouri
with perfect immunity from arrest.
"This was tho leader of tho gang with
whom Barshard was on friendly terms. Jones
was always heavily armed and would not
hesitate to shoot on the slightest provoca
tion. But he was not really a dangerous
man, lacking mental force nnd depending for
his reputation on brute courage and bluff."
A most dangerous man was Leo Frlzzell,
also an ex-convict. Ho was quiet and watch
ful and sometimes appeared to suspect that
Barshard was not all right. It required much
tact to dissipate tho fellow's suspicions, but
the detectlvo finally succeeded and was taken
fully into tho confidence of Frizzell and his
friend nnd associate, Frank Linburg. Barsh
nrd was told thoro was a deal on foot and
was finally admitted into nil the plans for the
raid on tho train. The party was to consist
of Jones, Linburg, Frizzell, Barshard. and
two "good people," who were to be on hand
Tuesday evening, September 25, was the
time set for tho attempt. The Denver ex
press, due in St. Joseph at 7:40 o'clock, was
to be intercepted at the water tank seven
miles east of town. As the locomotive stopped
at tho water tank one of the bandits was to
break tho couplings behind the mail and ex
press cars, while the other commanded the
engineer to go ahead into a deep cut, half a
mile up the track, leaving the passenger
coaches behind. In the cut the work of rob
bery was to be completed, four men going
through the express nnd mall cars, while
one, armed with a rifle, kept watch on tho en
gineer and fireman.

rEORiA, ill., Oct. 2. Ono of tho directors

probable that a meeting of the trust's stock

would be called upon to take what

TOO HANDY WITH THEIR CLUBS.
Lcxow Committee Made Acquainted with
the Bellicose Propensities of New York
Policemen Toward Citicns.
New York, Oct. 2. Chief Counsel Goff
surprised tho Loxow committee to-day. He
subpoenaed all tho members of tho forco who
had been convicted of .clubbing citizens dur
ing the past year and who for somo reason
have retained positions on tho forco. Thoro
aro nearly 100 cases of this charactor, and al
most all of tho officers summoned were in at
tendance this morning.
Ono of tho first olllccrs who testified was
Thomas Coloman, who hud been called to ex
plain his statements In connection with the
alleged assault upon George Appo. The
theory of the police and tho testimony of tho
proprietor and the inmates of tho hotel where
Appo was injured is that Appo cut his own
throat. Coleman being place 1 upon the stand
claimed that Appo had confessed to him that
he had attempted suicide. Ho was subjected
to a severe cross-examination by Mr. Goff,
and though ho could not shako tho police
man's story of tho confession, the officer was
badly rattled at times.
The feature of tho day, however, was tho
testimony of the men accused with clubbing
citizens. Many surprising stories of inhu
manity were told by tho witnesses. A son of
Bev. Dr. John Hall, tho Presbyterian divino,
claimed that ho nnd been lorclbly ojected
from a btatlon-bouse because ho had gone
there and protested against nu assault by an
officer upon an Italiim fruit dealer. A Colum
bia College student told of the assaults that
the policemen made upon the students while
they were building bonllrcs in a vacant lot to
celebrate one of their victories.
Thomas Lucca said that ho httl asked Po
licemnn Bernard Dunn if he had caught a
thief who stole ?4. from him. By way of re
ply th poHoetnnn clubbed him, Inflicting
wounds on his head requiring twenty-seven
stitches to patch him up. When he reached
the police station another policeman pum
meled him in the face.
Senator Cantor protested against tho ox
parto nature of the evidence and insisted that
the records should bo produced to show tho
othor side of the stories. His remarks caused
cheers from tho polk omen present, and Chair
man Lcxow threatened to have tho room
cleared if the offenso was repeated.
Policeman George Lair was accused of
clubbing a woman and trying to tear her
clicok by inserting his linger between her
lips. Policeman William Bohrlg acknow
ledged that ho had broken a boy's jaw, but
claimed that this particular caso of clubbing
Ono policeman who carelessly handled a
revolver was fined twenty days' pay, but was
allowed to remain on tho force, though it wns
admitted that tho citizen who was injured
died from his wounds. Fully half a hundred
policemen were waiting when an adjourn
ment was effected, nnd thoy were told that
they would bo needed. "Chairman" Lcxow
said that a case had boon made out of police
men clubbing citizens and escaping with light
Une3 instead of dismissal.
JUST THE WAN HE NEEDS.
Archbishop Ireland Selects Bishop itlcGol
rick for His Coadjutor.
Minneapolis. Minn., Oct. 2. The Journal
to-day says that some important changes are
contemplated In tlie Northwestern diocese of
the Catholic Church.
A moeting Is to be held Thursday at the resi
dence of Archbishop Ireland in which these
changes will be discussed, although it is un
derstood they have been practically decided
on by the archbishop. Bishop McGolriek, of
Duluth, is to be made coadjutor to Arch bishop
Ireland; Father Keane, of Immaculate Con
ception parish, of this city, is to suceeed Mc
Golriek as bishop of Duluth; Bishop Marty,
of Sioux Falls, S. D., is to tako the vacant
bishopric of St. Cloud, and the Sioux Falls
bishopric is to be given to Father Cleary, of
tho St. Charles purish.
This, the Journal says, is tho slate and will
undoubtedly go through. Archbishop Irelend
has been so much taken up with the interna
tional politics of tho church, in which he has
become a strong figure, that the detail of his
diocesean work has become burdensome. Ho
desires, therefore, a coadjutor and must
need have ono in sympathy with his liberal
projects. McGolriek is such a man, having
always been an Ireland man and a favorite
with the archbishop.

SEXTON AND GHOULS FIGHT
Leonard Only Attacfcs Four Grave
Robbers in Mount Zion Cemetery.
THEY EXCHANGE PISTOL SHOTS
He Heard Thorn, and, Creeping Cautiously in
tho Direction -of the Eonnds, Discovered
Four Men Working Around an Open Grave
Three Bodies Kecently Stolen.
Tho ringing clash of a falling spade broke
the stillness of the early morning yesterday
in tho neighborhood of Mount Zion Cemetery,
Georgetown. Theroaronot many houses in
the vicinity, with tho oxceptlon of n row to
tho south of the graveyard.
Some of tho sleeping residents stirred un
easily in thoir beds, but the only one aroused
by the unusual noiso was Leonurd Only, as
sistant sexton of Mount Zion Church, who
lived in one of the dwellings described. He
jumped out of bed and looked out the win
dow of his room. Off in tho cemetery he
could seo dim, flickering lights and dark
figures moving in front of them once in n
while. Faint sounds could be heard iu the
quiet, and tho sexton at once surmised that
grave-robbers wero at work.
Ho realized that it would be impossiblo to
effect the capture of tho ghouls, and con
cluded to get a look at their faces. Securing
a pistol Only descended the stairs and cau
tiously approached tho thieves. He thought
at first that thoy had just commenced and
hoped to scare them off before their nefarious
work had been done. As he softly stepped
nearer ho discovered that the robbers had
already lifted a coffin up from tho grave.
ONLY FIRED l'OINT BLANK.
Ono man had just started cautiously to pry
open tho lid when Only decided that tho time
had arrived to act. Raising the pistol he fired
point blank at the auartet. Tho report of the
revolver, sounding a thousand times louder
in tho stilly night, caused tho thieves to jump
in their fright. Then with an oath one of tho
parly whipped out a pistol and returned the
shot. Tho excitement at this point was in
tense, as another of tho ghouls kicked the
lantern Into the desecrated grave, thus leav
ing the spot totally dark. Only again pulled
tho trigger of his weapon, nnd as the flash of
tho powder revealed his whereabouts, quickly
jumped to one side.
Another bullet was sent winging its way in
answer to the sexton's shot. By this time
the neighbors were leaping out of bed and
cries were heard in the distance. Realizing
that discovery and capture were imminent the
four ghouls took to their heels and ran swiftly
in tho direction of the hill which borders the
cemetery on one part, stumbling over grave
mounds and falling against tombstones. Here
a horse and wagon had been hidden in readi
ness to bear away a ghastly burden, and into
the vehicle the hunted men quickly jumped.
Whipping up the horse they fled along Massa
chusetts avenue extended into Washington
bofore they could bo stopped.
When it was found that the thieves could
not be caught nn investigation was made.
It was found that the grave upon which they
were working when discovered was that of
Mrs. Diggs, who was buried on Monday. She
had died in Benning's. but was a member of
Mount Zion Church at No. 1336 Twenty-ninth
street northwest. Eev. Henry A. Carroll is
the body was not disturbed.
The coffin had b6en hauled out of its bed by
ropes, but fortunately the corpse was not dis
turbed by the grave-robbers, owing to the
lucky accident which caused their discovery.
Another important fact was brought out yes
terday when au examination of the hurrying
placo was made. Three gaves have been der
spolled during the lost few days, and it is
likely that the rest of the dead would have
been violated still further yesterday morning
had it not been for the assistant sexton.
It is plain that the thieves must have been
watching tho cemoterj', because only freshly
interred bodies have been exhumed. "
The police have been notified, and an effort
will be mado to locate the stolen remains,
which probably wore sold to a medical col
lege or to students privately. No trace of tho
ghouls could be found after they disappeared
from view in their mad gallop along Massa

REDUCING THE WAGES,
In tho Tin Plate Works It Is Ascribed to
the New Tariff.
St. Louis, Oct. 2. A reduction of tho
wages in tho rolling department of the tin
plate works ot the St. Louis Stamping Com
pany is announced. Whon asked what ne
cessitated the cut, Mr. Thomas Niedringhaus

haus: "Under the McKlnlcy bill tho duty af

cent. The Wilson bill affords protection of
only 35 Der cont. In order to meet this we

Jacksonville, Fla.. Oct- 2. Tho State and

Early this" morning, In consequence of
frauds having been threatened by the faction

three deputy sheriffs walked Into each poll

Houston to this city, and all day the State

main issues of the factional fight were a rail

railroad corporations to capture the next

POISONED WITH ARSENIC.
Two .Murders, One Attempt at Murder, and
One Suicide in One Family.
Kingston, N. II., Oct. 2. At the Feck in
quest this afternoon Dr. I. R. Bolton, of Mer
rimac, detailed the symptoms in the case of
Watson Peck, and gave his opinion that death
resulted from arsenical poisoning.
Prof. Woods' analysis of the liver revealed
about four and three-quarter grains of arsenic
present, and as nil the symptoms of the three
fatal cases aro similar, the deaths must be ex
plained in the same way.
A study of the family," with the symptoms
of poisoning, proves that there were two
cases of murder, an unsuccessful attempt nta
third, and finally the siicide of the murderer,
George Peck, tho eldest son. He is the only
one known to havo had arsenic, and was con
sidered irresponsible mentally. It is known
be was dissipated and had frequent quarrels
with his mother, and this, with the desire to
obtain tho property, it is thought, led him
to do tho poisoning. Fear of exposure is sup
posed to have caused the suielde.
Chester Peck, the last son of Watson Peck,
died early this morning, supposedly of ty

New York, Oct. 2. Fire which broke out
this forenoon in the five-story tenement
house ar No. 215 Madison street, inhabited by

By Apparent Carelessness.
The ranks of the left wing of the Ancient
and Honorable Artillery Company, wbfch 13
visiting the Washington Light Infantry, wera
thrown into confusion on Fifteenth street
during the parade yesterday afternoon by
the aetion of a gripman of the Fourteenth;
street cable line, wbo run his oar right
through the ranks without any regard to re
sults. Fortunately no ono was hurt.
The left wing of the artillery dlvMon4
which occupied the left of the line, had je.38
swung around Into Fifteenth street from tho
Avenue, when gnp car 24, with trailer 22 at
tachedg, going north, came rushing around
tne curve at full speed, the bell clanging and
tho gripman yelling to "Clear the traek."
Four platoons were overlapping the north
bound track by three or four men.
Lieut. Gushing, in command, happened to
see the car in time and hurriedly got his men
out of the way. As the ranks broke in con
fusion he ran to the side of the car. and men
acing the griptiMta with ate spontoon ordered
him to stop. When the ear came to a halt it
was within two yards of the line of the In-.
valid squad, woo bad been hitherto sneon
seious of their danger.
"What are you doing that for? demanded
"I can t help It," was the surly respoase.
"Well, you had better help it," rejoined tho
lieutenant, "and keep your ear well to the
rear, too." he added.
The broken lines wero reformed aad tha

renee last night at the Arlington. He saidt
"Most of the gripmen rang tbe hell for as,
and slowed down. If we didn't or eooida'C
nay any attention they stopped natH we go:
out of the way. But that fellow seemed to
think that the men would be thrown aside
like tenpins, and that would be the end of it."
A member of the fifth platoon of infantry
stated that one of the Georgetown cars triecj
to break through the ranks, but was stopper
by a policeman. From, offieers of the eom-j
mand it was also learned that a portion o'

of the same line at G street, but the earg

Mrs. Sarah F. Wood Seriously Injured as
