UAL.TJ.Mom-:, Feb. 15. The new bn.e bull
association received a setback today that
will probably delay Its organisation for u
year, if It does not entirely blast Its hopes.
When the meeting of tho aModatlon at
Chicago adjourned It wan agreed between
McOraw and Anson that If Philadelphia did

leaders would droii out. McGraw wan a-

When McOraw culled on Ollmore today he
wan Informed that the city of Philadelphia
owned the only available ball ground in
the city and that they weio to bo Improved.
Mr. (Jllmorc added that In the nbsencc of
an option on suitable grotindH ho preferred
uot to deposit the mgncy; possibly In two
wcoks he would Bee his wnjf clear, and
would then make good hlti contribution to
tho Philadelphia club.
Upon his arrival in Ilalrlmoro this even
ing McOraw found a telegram from 01!-
more awaiting liltn asking that the umocIu-
tlon wait three weeks. McOraw thereupon
threw up his hands telegraphed Anson that
.. ..i i .i.i.i...... r. ... .u ...... i..i..
he would withdraw from the nssncliitlon.
Ho said tonight that It was useless to try
to do ImslnesB with a olx-club circuit and
that (he lass of Philadelphia mennt the
failure of the association. He will prob
ably sign a league contract In a few days.
A meeting of the company which was or
ganized to back the Haltlmore club will bo
hold tomorrow night, and these mattcri
explnlned to them.

this was the announcement made by Captain '
Anson. The dispatch from Haltlmore from
McOraw, saying that the Philadelphia bick
ers had failed to keep their promise, brought
forth AtiBon-H announcement that the as
sociation of which ho was prcsfdent, was
"I havo smpected something of thin kind
for fomo time. As It was wo were too hur
ried and too little time remained to fix our
fences. I really did not think there was
much hopo for the association, but I made
up my wind thnt I would not desert the
enterprise and was hoping at times that
something might turn up that would make
it look more favorable.
"I don't know what we will do in the

William H. Taft In chambers nnd filed notice
of an appeal from tho decision rendered by

It wilt be remembered that In the two
cases brought to tho notice of Judgo Taft
tho question of federal Jurisdiction was
ralscvl and he doclded thnt the questions In

of Kentucky or should have been tnken di

in declaring that Jurisdiction did not lie In
the federal court and It was solely upon UiIh
ground that the appeal wero taken.

Tho most talked about play of the season,
or for thnt matter, of ninny seasons, Is hero.
No other play of recent years, not even
"Cyrano do He-rgcrac," which last season
was said to bo the drama of tho century,
has occasioned any more discussion than
tho Zangwill play. It is, Indeed, a rarity
for locul theatergoers to bo afforded the.
opportunity or seeing such a play as "Tho
Children of the Ghetto" within the satnu
seoton that It Is given proiicclloii In both
Ne- York ahd- Ixindon, and produced by
the original company, therefore It Is hardly
to bo wonderrd at that Thursday night's
audience was que of tho largest and most
enthusiastic at the season.
After bcclng "The Children of tho Ghetto'
il Is hard for one to Imagine why so grcn;
an outcry was raised against It by thu
New York critics. True, It is not a play
past fault finding, for thero nro few ot
fiitcn a kind written nowadays, but cer
tainly tho possibility of its deserving any
thing llko harsh criticism will not enter
any unprejudiced mind and there enn re
main little doubt that bias played an im
portant part in tho critical hostility tlm
pleco encountered in the cist. Ono of tho
principal charges brought against It won
thnt of Irrcvexiincc, nnd a moio unjust ono
could not havo been formulated. Just now
religious plays are numerous, and If It Ih
permleslblo (or the playwright to touch upon
tho religious subject at nil It could not ho
dono to better advnntugo than It Is by Mr.
Xangwlll. Hall Calno's play, "The Chris

this play would do the Jewish religion harm

This seems like tho veriest rubbish and It
Is hard to believe that any hut an ovor

thought. Sacrod things brought before us
are uplifting to look upon when they nro
earnestly nnd honestly presented mid Instead
of desecrating tho ttnge they consecrate It

THE BALLOON By Julien Dnpre.
The subject treats pf a group of peasants In the harvest-Held. The pons
nnls have spent the morning raking and slacking liny, the sun is at lis '.enl'th,
not a breath of air la Stirling, you can nltnost hear the bees as they buz, from
lluvver lo llovvir, and away oil' in the distance is seen a balloon limiting ma
jestically In the clear, blue sky. Kvidciitly iht. villagers are holding their
country fair, and a balloon ascension is one of the features. The gionp con
sistlng of the peasant and his family arc in the picturesque costume of tho
country. They have all stopped work ami stand with their rakis in Ihelr
hands gazing intently at the dlslant balloon. Wonder, awe and admiration
are blended in tlielr expressive faces, and revealed In Ihelr attitude. The
subject has been Heated with those soft, mellow tints which Its artist knows
ko-wtII bow lo paint, and recalls to the mind many Just nuch Incidents In our
childhood life. It Is Justly popular, both on account of Its artistic quality and
deep human Interest with which it ha s been clothed.
History of "The Defense of ClianipiKiiy."
Tho Franco-CJermnn war of 1ST0. w th all Its horrors and terrllilo loss nf llfo,
still burns In the memory of most living. For many yenra previous n bod feeling
ovlstod between France nnd Prussia an d both groat powers had been getting their
armies In readiness nnd were armed to th o teeth. Distrustful and full of hato to each
other, they soon found themselves In a po sitlon from which neither could retreat with
honor and nn appeal to the sword was th e only alternative. Tho Spanish crown of
fered tho I'rlnco of Hohenzollern, lu Jun c, 1870, and being uccepted by him, caused
the Interference of Prussia, which tho F tench government teseiitcd, fcclln's that
Prussia had no right to interfero In Spa nlsh nffalrs, and step by step tho quarrel
grew, and nlthough (!rent Uritaln nnd at her European powers tried to avert an opon
rupture nnd to preserve tho pence of Eu rope, tho war spirit was mndly popular In
both Prussia and Franco. At last, on th e Kith of July, 1S70, tho crisis came. Tho
Huko of Grnmmont told Lord Lyons, tli o Iliitlsh ambassador, that "Tho Prussian
government hnd deliberately Insulted Era nee by declaring to tho public that tho king
had affronted tho French ambassador. It was evidently tho iiituiitlun of tho king of
Prussia lo take credit with the people o f (icrmnny for having urtej wiih haughti
ness and discourtesy lu fact to humlllta to France." Empcior Napoleon, as curly as
tho 8th of July hud moved forward his tr oops, and on tho IStli of July war whs do
clarcd by tho French government to exist between Franco nnd Prussia. Ail Paris was
in nn uproar of delight. Tho dcclr.ratlo u of war made Napoleon popular with his
biibJectB and tho Chambers, by un overvvn elmlng vote, granted a credit of SO.000,000
francs for tho nrmy and 1U.000.000 for tho navy. Tho war was carried on with vast
cxpondlturo of force on both sides, mid vvur was brought lo a cioso after sovon
months of awful bloodshed und almost da liy battles, tho details of which aro to
harrowing to narrate. The Germans los t C.2I7 olllcers and 12,1, (fi3 men. Tho totnl
losses of tho French were Incalculable. S trasburg and .Mot., which Gnrmnny had lost
In a tlmo of wenkness, were reconquered, and the Gorman Empire had arisen nnow,
and Franco had thrown olf bondago und hud becomo a frco nation u republic. So
good camo out of evil.
Wlillo rcllcctlng upon these oventfiil times, M. Jean Ilatlsto Ednuard Dctnlllo, tho
great and famous French painter, was Inspired with tho Iden of painting his world
famous picture, "Tho Defense of Chanipluny."
Heforo giving a few facts, a description of this magnificent palntlnit. nn outllno
ot (ho vlllago that has been mndo bo famous, may bo horn narrated. Champlgny.
with n population of nvor 2,000 might almost bo described as a beautiful suburb of
Purls, It lies five miles east, southeast of tho gay city. Hero business men from tho
busy capital anil picnic parties wend tho Ir way for a quiet rest, fresh air, and to
Inko In the rural nnd pretty landscapes. Hero, pcattoroi through tho vlllago, wero
lovely homes or chatcnus, suiroundod with vvell-Iald-out gardens nnd lawns, full of
Htteet-scenled and pretty flowers and beautiful trees, casting a heavenly and poaenful
aspect nil around. Ilut this bcaiitly wa to bo marred by tho ravages of war. to
bo trampled down by tho ojldlers ai d Implements of war, for, situated us It Is, on
tho Martio, It was selected as u place for a sortie on bohnlf of the French army, and
.here on November HOlli until December 2nd, 1ST0. was tho scene of protracted and
bloody encounters between tho French troops undnr colonel Dttcrot nnd tho Germans,
end cu December 3rd tho French rocro'ssd the ilanio, having slain 0.000 Germans
and sustained a less nf from 10,000 In 12,0 no men and leavlni; Champlgny a waste.
M. Dciollle's nnlntlng of Tho D fnisoof Champlgny, 1S70, holds a most prominent
position In New Voik. It Is now hung In tho Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central
