will have long overcoats, coming nearly

placed ip over the head in case of ex

ductors will have short double breasted
sack coats, the pockets of which will be
lined with leather for convenience in
handling the nickels. The motormen

to run tha risk of buying two outfits.

Th Prospect for Chicago Flying: tha
Baa Ball Pennant.
Chicago, Oct L The days are gloomy
for the Chicago base ball crank. Anson's
colts don't aeem to be able to hit the ball,
while Boston, with the assistance ot New
York, has no trouble at all in taking in
game after game. Yesterday the Bean
eaters captured two more games from the
Giants, while Chicago dropped another to
the Cleveland experts. League scores: At
Brooklyn (First game) Brooklyn, 7; Phil
adelphia, 6. (Second game) Brooklyn, 0;

Boston's Remarkable Ran of Lock.
Yesterday's games made Boston the
winner of sixceen games running, and
the Hub was hilarious last night with a
lead of eight points over Chicago.
Charges that New York is "throwing"
games to beat the Windy City club are
very frequent. Anson said at Cleveland
yesterday that he hated to believe
them, bat things looked that way, and be
will demand an investigation. Certainly
New York should explain why in all Its
aeries with Boston this time it has put tip
pitchers who have no record for skill.
President Hart, of the Chicago club, has
wired President Young, of the League, to
ascertain if the extra games played by
Boston with Pittsburg and Brooklyn had
received the proper conrent.

Be Goes Gunning for the Bears in a "Hold
Your Wheat" Circular.
St. Paul, Oct. 1. Another "hold your
wheat" circular is out. This one is from
Ignatius Drmnellr, presidtnt of the Min
nesota Alliance, who urges farmers to
bold their wheat for thirty days longer i
In it he says: -I think every intelligent
man in Minnesota knows that wheat is
now selling far below its actual value. It
is very clear that if not a bushel of wheat
Is sold in Minnesota by the farmers dur
ing the next thirty days tbe wheat pits of
Chicago, New York and London would
be full of dead 'bears.'
Advises a Corner In the Cereal.
"Then the farmers would get for their
wheat crop what it is really worth. I do
not speak in behalf of the State Farmers'
Alliance, but in my individual capacity,and
I believe that the farmers are being robbed
of one-fourth the value of their product,
and that they should totally stop all sales
of wheat for a time and then let it out
alowly, so as not to break down the
Suit Over a Little Gas Bill.
Pittsburg, Oct 1. Andrew Carnegie
and George Westinghouse have gone gun
ning for each other. The trouble is over
a gas bill of (580,000 which Westing
house's company claims that Carnegie's
firms owe it. Carnegie's people say they
don't owe a cent, but declare that the
Westinghouse people owe them thou
sands of dollars for breach of contract.
Carnegie, Phipps & Co. have obtained a
preliminary injunction against Westing
bouse's concern restraining it from turn
ing off the gas at Carnegie's plants, and
asking damages for the failure to keen
up the supply. Westinghouse comes back
at tbe Carnegie people with a suit for un
paid gas bills amounting to $380,000.
Expelled from the Dominion House.
Ottawa, Oct. 1 In the house of com
mons Tuesday afternoon Sir John Thomp
son, government leader, moved that
Thomas McGreevey, the member from
Quebec west, having been found guilty of
contempt of the bouse in having failed to
attend in his place.and having been judged
guilty of the offenses charged against
him on May 11 last, be expelled from the
house. This was carried unanimously.
The remaining members of the house
then voted themselves (500 extra indem
nity. Gould's New (Southern Outlet.
.New Yobs, Oct. L George Gould said
yesterday to a reporter that the new
branch of the Iron Mountain railroad
connecting the Missouti Pacific with New
Orleans, so that grain can be shipped
from that port by way ot the Missouri
Pacific, would be completed and cars run
ning on it by Jan 1, 1892. Mr. Gould said
that vessels carrying cotton required the
grain for ballast, and would therefore
carry it very cheap. The grain would be
carried on the bottoms of tbe vessels, and
the cotton be packed on top.
Ordered Back to Valparaiso.
Washington, Oct 1 The only Im
portant announcement made yesterday
concerning tbe Chilian complication was
that the cruiser San Francisco, which ar
rived Monday at Payta, Peru, on her way
northward to Sn Francisco, has been
ordered back-to Valp4ra;so. This state
ment was sanctioned by Secretary Tracy.
Adelia Fuller, of Mansfitld. Mass., was
