The C, n. & D. Hustlers and Grand
Avenues will play at Brighton Beach this
atternoon, beginning at 3 o'clock.
UThe Easterns and Klee & Colemans
will play -at Coy's park this afternoon.
The game will be called at 3:45. The Klee
& Coleman team is composed of such
.well-known players as Billy Sowders,
Broderick,pcjveon, Murry, Elliott, Himbo
and Mills. "Sowders will pitch.
The News team leads tho Y. M. C. A. pen
nant race with a percentage of .782, and
will capture the championship, as the
Meridians percentage is .714 and there re
mains only one more game to be played.
The Remingtons are at the .428 mark, while
the Excelsiors, having won but a single
game out of twenty-one, have a percentage
of only .047.
There is a game between the Meridians
and Remingtons, of the Y. M. C. A. League,
which has not been officially decided. The
Meridians claim the Remingtons forfeited
the game that it was an exhibition game.
The umpire had not been instructed by
either manager in regard to it. and thought
it a regular championship game. The ques
tion is, can a club count a game forfeited
unless such action is officially announced by
tho umpire? The Y. M. C. A. League sea
son closes next Saturday, with News vs.
Meridians, and Remingtons vs. Excelsiors.
Fight Between Italians and a Sheriffs Posse in
Which Several Persons Were Killed.
Catlettsburo, Ky Sept 20. Advices of
a reliable nature received to-uay from
Louisa, Ky., say that on Twelve Pole creek,
near Wayne C. H:, W.Va., a terrible fight oc
curred between a sheriffs posse and a gang
of Italian railroad laborers in which sev
eral Italians were killed, and a number
wounded. Some weeks ago a contractor on
the Norfolk & Western railroad named
Keogh went away leaving numerous cred
itors, among the number being the Italians.
Several days ago a new contractor took
possession of tho abandoned work and put
a number of laborers to work in a cut for
merly worked by the Italians. The Ital
ians refused to allow any one to work in
the cut until they had received their pay
Hfor work done under Keogh, and proceeded
t rt nnat. thn n I a Virrra rVYy ran timai Vi a
new laborers were run out of the cut by the
Italians, who used stones, clubs, knives and
pistols to effect their purpose. The con
tractor then applied to the court for protec
tion, and was furnished a posse of about a
dozen men, headed by the sheriff of Wayne
county. On Friday tho sheriff' appeared,
and made an attempt to arrest the
Italians, who fiercely resisted, and an un
equal combat resulted, with forty or more
Italians on one side, armed with stones,
knives and revolvers, and the sheriffs men
on the other. The Italians fought from be
hind trees, stones, and whatever would
shield a man's body. Firing became gen
eral and lasted some minntes. When the
smokefof the" battle cleared away several
Italians were found in the last throes of
death, and several more were wounded.
The sheriff's men escaped with a few severe
bruises. About twenty Italians were ar
rested and taken to jail at Wayne C. 1L
The remainder escaped in the woods. The
scene of the fight is forty or fifty miles
from here, and remote from railroad and
telegraph communication.
Mr. Martindale Offers a Resolution on the Sub
ject, and It Is Adopted by the Fair Commission.
Chicago, Sept. 20. At the opening of its
session this morning the World's Fair Com
mission listened to the report of its com
mittee on site. The report recommended
the adoption of the dual site, as tendered
by the local directory. The commit
tee estimated that there were trans
portation facilities for 13,000 people
per hour each way! and this
limit was capable of increase, Various
propositions and amendments were pre
sented and disenssed at length, necessi
tating a continuance of the session until 3
o'clock p. M., when the following resolution
of Mr. Martindale was adopted by a vote of
77 to 8.
Resolved, That, in the opinion of this commis-
siou. one single site for the exposition la espe
cially desirable, and a part of such site sbould
border on the lake; that the directors may pro
cure aud present to the cotnnilsalou the moat de

mittee yesterday appointed to whom was re
ferred the communication in reference to site

Chicago, Sept. 2a The general grievance
committee of engineers representing 'the
entire Chicago &, Northwestern system,
who are holding their annual meeting

committee. Officers were elected for the
ensuing year as follows: H. E. Wills, of
Clinton. Ia., chairman; M. Fitzgerald, of
St. Paul, vice-president; S. P. Malone, of
Huron, Dak., secretary and treasurer.
One of tho most important matters that has
come before the committee is that refer
ring to federation with other rail
way employes. . The members of
the committee' have been inter
viewed individually and found to be
almost a unit in favor of federation. A
committee representing the Brotherhood of
Conductors, and also one from the Railway
Firemen's Association will meet the en
gineers to-morrow. The scheme of federa
tion will be discussed in all its details.

Great Display of Affection Between Em
perors William and Francis Joseph.
Conferences at Which the Question of Com
bined Action Against the McKiniey Tariff
Bill Was Discussed The Balkan Situation.
CoprrithV is), by the New York Associated Press.l
. Berlin. Sept. 20. A grand parade of the
troops engaged in the army maneuvers was
held this morning near Eichholz in the
presence of Emperors William and Francis
Joseph, the King of Saxony, Chancellor
Von Caprivi and Count Kalnoky. At the
conclusion of the parade Emperor William
gathered the officers in a group and ad
dressed them, commending their eflortsin
the field. His Majesty thanked Emperor
Francis Joseph and the King of Saxony for
attending the maneuvers, and said hehoped
what they had seen had convinced them
that tbe army remained as efficient under
his leadership as it was under that of Em
peror William I, thus furnishing a gnaran
tee of the continued solidity and strength
of the brotherhood of arms. He then
called for cheers for the Austrian Emperor,
which were enthusiastically given by tho
oflicers. Emperor Francis Joseph, in his
response to Lmperor William's speech, said
he was proud of having an ally in command
of such troops. The whole operations had
I given him special gratification. On leav-
j ing the field the royal party drove to Lieg
I nitz. The route was lined with local asso
Jciations and the populace was in festal
After taking luncheon at the castle the
party proceeded to the railway station,
where Finperor William bade his guests
farewell. There was much embracing and
kissing. Emperor Francis Joseph being es
pecially eilusive towards Chancellor Von
Caprivi, shaking hands with him repeated
ly. ,As the train departed Emperor Will
iam led the cheering for Emperor Francis
Joseph. General Von Caprivi on his way
back to the castle received a popular ova
tion. Emperor William, accompanied by
Count Von Waldersee. went by train to
Kreisau to visit Count Von Moltke, with
whom they dined.
The prolonged conferences between Gen
eral Von Caprivi and 'Count Kalnoky,
wtioh have been held daily, have been
largely devoted to- the discussion of the
project of the Austrian Premier for closer
commercial relations between Germany
and Austria. General Von Caprivi has
been in constant communication with II err
Miqnel, the Prussian Minister of Finance.
Semi-official information has been ob
tained to the effect that Austria has taken
the initiative in proposing concerted
European action against - the McKmley
tariff bilL - The reports in the Paris news
papers that France had been invited to
join tbe Driebund do not mean the polit
ical leasue, but a league whose object will
be to take common commercial reprisals
against Amenca. The reports, however,
were entirely premature. Chancellor Von
Caprivi, evidently feeling himself incapa
ble of deciding the complicated questions
involved in a tariff war, declined to com
mit Germany to any action before consult
ing his colleagues.. It Js probable that
Count Kalnoky and M. Kibot, the French
Minister of Foreign Arlairs, exchanged
views on the matter. The officials of the
Foreign Office here deny that there have
"been any communications with the French
government on the subject since the over
tures of M. Ribot thereon were allowed to
Herr Miqnel is opposed to any measure
tending to increase the cost of necessary
articles of food. The taxation reforms
whiclYhe is preparing draw upon the re
sources of the moneyed classes aud do not
touch ' the food of the people. The spirit of
his policy is in the direction of reciprocity,
not of retaliation. If Chancellor Von
Caprivi is guided by his colleagues Ger
many's assent to join France, Austria and
Italy in a zollverein against America will
never be given. . , .
The Vienna Press, which is more exer
cised over the tariff question than are the
German papers, discusses the advisability
of retaliating by placing a general Europe
an ban upon American products by refus
ing to protect American patents, and vari
ous other methods impossible for countries
having important commercial relations
with the United States.
Emperor William's visit to Vienna is now
fixed for Oct. 1, when the conferences be
tween the two monarchs will be resumed.
The interviews at Rohnstock have not re
sulted in any arrangement for the meeting
between the Austrian Emperor and the
Czar which was projocted by Emperor
b William. The diplomatic advantage, mean-
' A .1 3 . A .
time, appears to ueponu upon Austria od
taining assurance of German support in
the Balkans.
Prince Bismarck, through the Hamburger
Nachrichten, attacks the government for
its departure from his policy. The ex
Chancellor maintains that it will be a
grievious fault if Berlin statecraft makes
Austria's Eastern trouble with Russia Ger
many's own. Advices from Copenhagen re
ferring to the early meeting of the three
emperors are, discredited here. The latest
St. Petersburg dispatches state that the
Czar will not visit Denmark until the end
of October. The Novoe Vremya says, to
day, that no result of tbe Rohnstock inter
view will divert the Russian government
from tbe path which it has steadfastly, pur
xsaed for three years.
1 The Germans who were driven to the
Baltic provinces by Russia have formed a
committee to organize a propaganda
against the Russianizing of the provinces.
The police authorities of St. Petersburg
have directed the attention of tbe Berlin
police to this committee, and- have asked
that it be suppressed on the ground that it
is composed of revolutionists. The author
ities at Berlin, however, have declined to
interfere until proof of conspiracy against
the Czar shall nave been furnished.
Prince Bismarck, upon being asked wheth
er he was going to sojourn at Nice tho com
ing winter, said . he would like to go, but
' that enormous and growing difficulties for
bid it. "Though I am only an old general
on the retired list," said the Prince. 'I hope
if peril menaces the country the Kaiser will
remember me."
The Socialists asked permission to use
the Berlin town hall to celebrate there
turn, on Oct. 1, of the expelled members of
their party, but the request was refused by
tho municipal council.
The mausoleum in the Friedenskirche at
Potsdam for the remains of Emperor Fred
erick has been completed, and the grand
ceremony of dedication and the transfer of
the cotlin containing the Emperor's remains
will take place Oct. 18,

evening at 7 o'clock, in the west room. The
attendance was large, and much interest
was taken in the exercises. The meeting
was opened by singing "In the Cross," and

at the mission in Mexico, where the enroll
ment is 27 and the averago attendance, 20
the largest average of any school in the
Yearly Meeting. The Annual Assembly
ou Bible Schools, at its meet
ing held the 1st of August, decided to
ask of this Yearly Meetins the privilege of
incorporating it nuder the general law of
Indiana, which was granted readily, and
David Hadley, Samnel C. Mills and S. Edgar
Nicholson were confirmed as its trustees to
act in the matter, for tbe assembly, and
also to hold in trust tho funds of tbe same.
Appropriate remarks were mado by Joseph
Mooro, of Eariham College, and the meet
ing closed by singing "All Hail the Power
of Jesus' Name," and tho benediction by
the superintendent-elect, Lewis 1. Hadley.
A devotional meeting was held at 8
o'clock this morning, conducted by Brother
Douglas, of Iowa. .The song service was
led by Dr. Dixon, of California. Prayer
was offered by lirothers Douglas. Hadley
and others. Jacob Baker, of Ohio, read tho
account of tho transfiguration, commenting
on tbe words "Jesus, Master, it is good for
ns to be here." A general good feeling pre
vails in these meetings, and the full gospel
ministry of evangelist Douglas in being
greatly blessed. An adjourned meeting of
the "representative meeting" was held at
the same hour in the west room of the
At 10 o'clock a. M. the regular business
session was held. It was opened by sing
ing and prayer. After tho reading of the
opening minutes. Anthony Kimber and his
companion, George M. Chase, of Rhode Isl
and, wero granted privilege to visit the
women's meeting. A few words of fatherly
greeting was read by B. C. Hobbs from

meeting. An expression of brotherly greet
ing and sympathy vwas ordered sent him by

lowship was read from the Mother Yearly
Meeting of London, to tho church through
out the world, and it was ordered printed
as an appendix to the printed minutes; also,
one each, directed to this meeting, from
London, Ireland, New England, New York,
Baltimore, North Carolina, Canada, Ohio,
Indiana and Kansas. A committee of thirty-one
was appointed to prepare, and pro
duce to a future sitting, a responsive epistle
of loving greeting to each, of which Calvin
W. Pritchard is chairman.
The queries addressed to the quarterly
meetings wero read and a summary of the
same approved. From this is gleaned tbe
information that, with few exceptions, all
the meetings of the ynar have been regu
larly and orderly held; that Friends gen
erally, in their intercourse among men, give
evidence that they are imbued with the
love of Christ, careful in contracting debts,
and in making other engagements, and
timely measures taken in nearly all cases
to restore those who are overtaken in a
fault in the spirit of meekness and love.

A joint session on education was held in
the afternoon. It was opened by singing
"We Praise Thee, O God" and prayer by
John Pennington, of Iowa. S. Edgar
Nicholson, the Yearly Meeting superin
tendent, read his report. It was of more

An able and' inspiring address was de
livered by Thomas Newlin, of Spiceland
Academy, which, strange as it may seem in
a Quaker meeting, drew forth a hearty ap
plause. . Following this a few very perti
nent remarks wero mado by Joseph Moore,
of Eariham College.
The report of the trustees, treasurer and
president of Eariham College was read.
The institution is in a nourishing condi
tion. Many of the young men and women
of the church are availing themselves of
tho benefits of a college education. The
influence of the college is widespread and
pupils and graduates are to be found in
nearly every State and Territory in the
Union many. filling; .important stations in
the secular arid relijrious world. Encour
aging words were spoken by J. Henry
Douglas, B. C. Hobbs, David Hadley and

Exploits Planned by a Famous Thief and
Overturned by an Irish Woman.
Kscsaa City Star.
Fifteen yeas ago thieves determined on
a big bank robbery, The bank selected
was in a city in New Jersey. The emprise
was planned and principally poshed by a
vqry clever pickpocket called 'Mollie
Matches7 alias John Larncy. He was a
man of enterprise, courago and brains, and,
what was just as important in a job of this
sort, he had money lots ot it. Matches
was not a "gopher man" himself, and in no
wise worked on banks in a practical, per
sonal way. He belonged to the aristocracy
of rogues, was a prime pickpocket in fact,
and if some light-tingered McAllister ever
writes a book he will tell yon that such a
man belongs to roguery's "JOO."
Matches did the outside work. He pro
cured the tools, the section jimmies, the
spreaders, pullers, wedges, mauls, suction
pump, putty, powder, fuse, saws, tiles,
drills and drill-brace, as well as various
corrosive acids for eating iron and steel.
These tools are necessarily hand-made, as,
in the nature of things, they can only be
ordered of trusted men. The men who
make them are among the best artisans in
the world, and the cracksman tools they
turn out are light, elegant, accurate and of
great power. The tools for tbe New Jersey
robbery were made in Cleveland, under the
direction of a man who was once the chief
police officer of that city. They cost
Matches $1,600. The bank was selected be
cause of a vacant dwelling-house on one
side, while two streets and an alley were
on the other three.
It is well to say right here that banks,
and, especially those weak banks in small
country towns, which are the "gophers'."
pride and joy. had better know who has
possession next door. That is where dan
ger generally comes from.
Matches began by bribing tho janitor of
the bank, who was also its night watch
man. He let the talented robber inside one
nig tit and au accurate plan of the bank with
its money-vaults was made. Then Matches
rented the house next door, paying for a
month in advance. OneSatuidag evening
the gang assembled and the work began.
Saturday was selected because the work
was going to take time and they would
need until Monday morning to complete it
Their purpose was to tunnel into the bank
from tho neighboring house. Descending
to the basement, they began, guided by
their map of the bank.
All night they moiled and toiled in tho
basement. A good deal of work was before
them, as they had to tunnel under the open
yard between the buildings for a space of
ten teet. But they kept on, for they were
within fifty feet of $:X)0,000. At last the
earth taken out began to encumber that
part of the basement where the "gophers"
were at work. One was detailed to carry
it back in a large basket and dump it in "a
rear room. This rear room had naif win
dows, from which one could see into tbe
back yard, but the "gophers" never thought
of that; they were thinking only of the
bank and the $200,000. Matches was not
with tbem.or this mistake might have been
averted. He told me this story himself,
and was contident nothing could have gone
wrong if his master mind were there.
Trouble began in this wise. The card
"For Kent" was still in the front window.
The thieves overlooKed that, too. It caught
the eye of an1 old Irish woman bound for
earl' mass on Sunday morning. be coveted
the editico f or a "boordin'-house." It was
locked, so fthe went about peering into the
windows. Looking down through the rear
basement windows she descried a pile of
fresh earth on the tioor. The "gophers"
had been dumping dirt there about thirty
"Av Oi tuk it," said the old Irish woman
to herself, "Oi'd make the landlord clane out
the basement, sure.'' And then she
journeyed on to early mass and the conso
lation of her soul.
The morning and part of the Suoday
afternoon sped by. No bees ever worked
like the diligent "gophers" nearing the
$200,000. The pile of earth in tbe back base
ment grew apace. At 3 o'olock in the after
noon the old Irish woman, her mind fraught
with "boorrtin'-bouse," determined to tako
another look at the eligible structure that
stood next tbe bank. She returned. She
was astounded in the growth of the mound
of earth in the rear basement. ' From a
small, inconsequential heap it had grown
until tons of earth was now cumbering the
"Howly Virgin, but the house is haunted

39. South Illinois
smiled at the spook theory. He started for
, the house. On the way he notified a ser
geant of police at a minor station. The
sergeant knew bis business, and at once
divined the scheme of the thieves. He was
also an ambitious officer, and determined
to make the capture without first notify
ing the central otlice. This was contrary to
police rules and disarran ged matters mi ghti
ly. If he had notified his superior the
thieves would have gotten away. The care
ful Matches had the chief "fixed," aud a
fleet messenger was in constant waiting in
sight of any signal which the chief might
give, to 11 y to the men at work and notify
them of discovery. The signal was simple.
The chief was to put up a certain window
of his oriice. That meant "look out"
But the sergeant did not notify the chief.
He wanted the credit himself, so he took a
squad and captnred the industrious "go
phers" in their tunnel.
"And they were within two hours of the
stuff, too," said Matches, sadly, as he re
lated the matter to me. "Two hours more
and they'd had that 200,000!"
