Fox, the Quicksteps' change pitcher, is wanted by the Cleveland club, and as he de sires to go he will be given a release. A peculiar fact in relation to the Brook lyn-Anthracite game on Monday is that Householder, the Brooklyn's first baseman, had but three put outs, no assists and no errors. The Pottsville Chronicle tells the truth as follows: "Secretary Richter gets $300 for acting as secretary, yet he has not done a single thing that entities him* to that pay. Almost two-thirds of the season Is over, yet it is always a difficult matter to ascertain the exact standing of the clubs, obtain any knowledge of the batting or fielding record, or playing of* each member. It's about Mine he shows some evidence of being secretary." The article in this morning's News iu which an alleged spectator claims to have seen the game between the Quickstep aud Anthracite, bears upon it an appearance of being false. In the first place the Anthra cite club could not have arrived home until 9 o'clock of the morning of the game, again could not have pleased with the game yesterday Snyder played Benners first base and a new man the alleged specta' got to Wilmington until uine minutes after o'clock, and as be is said to-have made his statement- last evening it Is safe to chal lenge the prooi oi his statement, of of of a In pooling the Improvement.

London, July 31,— O'Donnell,who killed James Carey, the informer, was accompa nied from England by his wife, who ap peared to be on intimate terms with the Carey family during the voyage. Carey died without speaking alter he was shot. O'Donnell is an Irish American. He denies that he knew who Carey was previous to his arrival at Cape Town. It is reported thatuu infernal machine was found in O'Donnell's possession. The c respondent of Reuter's Telegraph Company at Cape Town says « »'Donnell only took passage for Cape Town, but learning that Carey was a fellow-pass« nger he continued on the journey with him the steamer Melrœa and shot him when close to Algoa Ba , io the presence of the informer's lamily. O'Don nell is calm. He is strongly guarded, rumors are ufloat that an attempt to resc him will be made. A fund to be used in defending him is being collected. Third class berths on the steamer Kinfaui a Castle were secured on June 30 at the Dub lin office ot Messrs. Donald Currie «& Co. for Port Elisabeth for a "M . Power and wife and seven children," which it is well known was the exact number of James Carey's family. On July 2 O'Donnell secured sage for himself and wife steamer. >D that steamer a the same Messrs. Donald Currie & Co. were not aware until yesterday of the iden tity of Power with James Carey. The Times pronounces the death of Carey a public misfortune. It says he had been an instrument of justice. The murder is calculated to encourage daring and lawless spirits to commit acts of violence. The joy caused iu Ireland by the informer's death is proof that many elements of danger still exist there. The Daily News has the following special lispatcb, dated Cape Town, July 31: O'Don nell was examined before a Port Elizabeth Magistiate to-day on the charge of murder ing James < 'arey, the informer. According to the evidence given Carey and O'Donnell had been drinking in the second-class cabiu just before the murder. When the steamer halfway between Table Bay and Algoa Bay O'Donnell suddenly shot Carey iu the neck with a revolver. Carey staggered away aud O'Donnell followed aud shot him twice in the back. Carey died iu 20 min utes. It is worthy of note that a rumor pre vailed iu Nationalist circles iu London last Sunday night that James Carey had been shot. An item stating that he had been killed was tendered to a news agency iu London at midnight on Sunday, but (used, as no authority was given for the statement. It has siuce been ascertained that a telegram had been received at Paris from Brindisi,« which was forwarded to London on Sunday night, reading: "James Carey has been shot. Thank God. t.he steamer Melrose, re Ah which Carey was -hot, did not reach Port Elizabeth until Monday, either the ■d on a rtatement which In certain ffect that it had been prearranged to kill 1 'arey statement was m- re surmise or a was openly made Nationalist cire'es to the the last Sunday of July was true.
