"Billy" Birch, the oll-tlme "King of Negro .Minstrels," died Tuesday In his humble lodgings at No. 76 Seventh avenue. New York. He made tils thousands as a black-faced comedian and died poor. His death was due to paralysis of the brtn and to lirlght's disease. The old mins trel met death calmly. He seemed scarcely to realize that he was dying. Thoae who were near him say that "Billy" D.rth had been a different man since he fell in the street from a paralytic stroke a month ago. A policeman, concluding that he was Intoxicated, took him to the station house, and the old mins trel spent the night in a cell. He had been crushed and broken in spirit since then. He was tken home muttering the words of the kindly Judge who discharged him: "You've made many of us liiuh in your time, 'Billy. " He scarcely recognized his wife . and his friends and his strength gave way day after day. The Elks' and the Actors' Fund will look after the funeral services, which will take place Sunday. "lillly" Birch was born in Utlca, N. Y., in mi. He early showed signs of talent. Hid flr.t appearance waa in 1544. when he was a performer In an amateur minstrel show In New Hartford, N. Y. He made his debut a- a professional inlnvtr?! In 1M in Stamford. Conn., with Ray mond's Minstrels. He waa then only fifteen years eld. Krm that t!rs? ur.tll lSiio he was contin uously before the public as a black-lace comedian. "Billy" Birch originated many famous minstrel jokes, such as the one about the country coutdrus whose arrival in the city Is generally presaged by the jrlft of a, pillow-case of hickory nuts. College boy to this day repeat the words. "Georg Washington, first In war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen." with a crossing of legs and stamping of feet at the r.d. That bit of stage business was invented ly "Billy Birch. He made Ids first appearance in this city at a hall on Grand street in lli. He met with Tattering success. He went to Philadelphia later, where he received an engagement from Dan Km rnett. the reputed author of "Dixie." He fol lowed the road and played at one-night stands lor several years. George Christy was then the reigning favorite or negro mlnstrey In New lcrk and was the prc;ifieior of a muic hall at No. 444 Broadway. Another hall was opened at No. 4J2 Broadway. Christy and Birth shared the lienors. Birch appeared a end man at one hall lor half the evening and then went to the other one. "Billy" Rlrch went to California. In 1S31. He appeared in every city of the coast. He made iiney and savd it. He was married on Aug. 13. Vl. and starud the next day lor New York n a Norwegian bark. He wua shipwrecked, lie landed on th Viretnia coast pennilexs. He icmt rvavk to New York, and In partnership with WamloM & Backus formed probably the trot successful of all minstrel organizations. It Is said that the profits of the company amounted to one million dollars. Backus and Wainlold are etad. "Ullly" Birch, the lat of the trio, lost bis money by speculating in Wall street. "I was in the bl-u. fce business as funny man from lvil to 1-54." he used to say. "and. although I was never cut cut for a humorous ri-Ie. 1 made money. In later years, when I Uvk up the calling of a financier, for which I was really Km. they broke me." "Billy ' Bir?h was a well-known character arourvl the theaters.

Is a pianist who has evidently given much enthusiasm to the cul tivation of her talent, and she played a brilliant and difficult programme, entirely irom memory.

The "Melodle." by Paderewskl. and the "Dream of Love." by Liszt, received a sympathetic interpretation. The list was the concerto by Rubinstein.

Special to the Indianapolis Journal. MONTPELIER. Ind.. April 22. The re cent decline in the price of refined and crude petroleum, coupled with an unprece dented rise in Standard Oil securities, and with developments in the Indiana oil fields, has set the oil producers guessing. They huve been vaguely &usp!cious of sonic vast deal, as is now reported, from New York. For several weeks before April 1, Pennsyl vania oil ruled steady at SI cents a barrel. Then there was an advance of a cent. The market was not expecting good news, but it concluded to wait for developments. The following day there was added another cent and so on, day by day, cent by cent, until it reached 90 cents, but Indiana oil re sponded more sluggishly. The advance was steady and the producers, hoping for dollar oil. held on. Then came a drop of 3 cents, and then another cent was knocked off every hour until oil was selling at SS cents. Indiana oil declined to 47 cents, and the Eastern market to Si cents. The Standard Oil certificates are not listed and are re garded as extremely sluggish and inactive. About the only change observed by the av erage broker is that they rise from year to year and are hard to get hold of, the ccmpany being almost a close corporation. The attention of the street, however, was attracted by the way the Standard securi ties jumped during the last few days. On April 6, two days after oil dropped to &8, Standard certificates were in the most ac tive demand, at $2.S1V2, the highest point they had ever reached. They were quoted at $2.65-52.06 on Feb. 1. Ac cording to reports these securities have gone up since April 6 more than 10 points, reaching over tho i2.90 mark. Some of the Wall street brokers arc at tributing this advance to a rumored in ciease of the stock from $100,000,000 to $200, 000,000, on which it is said the company In tends to pay 5 per cent, quarterly. Perhaps they will now see a solution in the desire of the Standard people to effect a combine. Here in the Indiana field the air is rife with rumors. It has been whispered that the Cudahys, who entered the business some thing like a year ago, investing a large amount of money in pipe lines, wells and refineries, have not been cutting half as wide a swatn as was supposed, and It is said the Standard people knew this long before the general public did. A report goes that General Mana&er Graves, of the Indiana Pipe Lino and Refining Company, the Cudahy's confidential man in the whole oil business, is losing many good hours of sleep wondering how the Standard is able to keep such close "tab" on the production of the Northern Indiana Oil Company. It Is the practice of all oil produceis to take the gauge of their tanks every diry. Tho tanks usually hold from 160 to 10 bar rels, still they are called a 250-barrel tani:. and every inch of fluid in them counts for barrels. It came to the notice of the Cudahys some time ago that their big rival was being accurately informed on the measurement of their tanks. Thoy ma da an Investigation, but were unable to ois. cover tho leak. All kinds of plans v.erv laid and ruses adopted to conceal the pro duction of the Northern Indiana Company from the Standard agents, but without avail. The Importance of accurate knowl edge as to the amount cf business a rival Is doing will be appreciated by those fa miliar with the Standard's methods. Fot somo years it ha not been payins much at. tentlon to competitors, until they began to cut pretty deeply into the Standard's busi ness. Tho way the producers size up the situation is tnis: ine standard securities, while steadily advancing last year owing to tho increased consumption at home anj abroad, did not reach the figures the facts would Justify, and this retarding of their rise was due to tho amount of dust in--Cudahy concern kicked up. The Standard began to think the Chicago people were growing too fast, and, as usual, the ques tion whether to crush or buy out the pack ers was considered. Apparently, the "ab sorption" Idea was adopted. The Indiana situation took on m new phase when the Carter Oil Company, of Sistersville, W. Va.. a Standard concern, bought out the HowIandZlegler Oil Com pany, in the Indiana field. Tne president of the Carter Company has been in Indiana tmmo time looking over the field, and ru mors are thick that other purchxes are Intended. At the same time, the Manhat tan Oil Company, another Independ ent concern, is making offers fur oil in the vicinity of Warren, where it has a pipe line. The producers appear to bo in a high state of excitement. Some of them, who have, been considering offers from the Indiana Pipe Line ana Re fining Company, are anxious to knov "how the cat is going to jump." They fl. not want to offend the Rockefeller company with having a prospect of a permanent pur chaser. No information can be obtalnen from General Manager Graves. In the ImPana and Ohio oil fields them are. all told, XlSl wells finished for oil ami gas purposes, of which fi.yl'j wer ory holes., and of th producing wells have sine been abandoned. This shows an Investment In wells alone of $7S.S!2.O0O. There are now now about Sl.ixiO producing wells in the two States with a dally output of close to GG.loO barrels, which would not bring the average per well per day above the three-barrtl mark. By this Jt will be seen that but few of the producers are making a fortune for their Investment with oil at 47 and ZZ cents per barrel. Another , Well on Cnner Fur in. tfjxHlal to the Indianapolis Journal. ELWOOD, Ind., April 22. Word reached here this morning that another oil well had been struck on the Nim Carver farm, east of lure, this morning, and that it had a ' fifty-barrel capacity.

The Browns new mascot was not an overpowering success in the opening game between St. Louis and Pittsburg to-day. Five thousand mournful rooters for the Browns saw the Pirates play a stronger and better game than the home team and watched the visitors stroll off the field with all the honors of the day and a score of 4 to 1 in their favor. The game waa called at 3:43 o'clock, Pittsburg taking tho field. The first Inning was featureless, except for the retirement of Smith, Pittsburg star bats man. In the second inning both Pittsburg and St. Louis scored. That was the last of It for the Browns. Then followed seven innings with goose eggs, where St. Louis's runs ought to have been. Pittsburg scored easily In the sixth and picked up two more in the eighth on Brodie's double over first base. The weather was cloudy and warm. Score: bntes i Cross. Smith.

WASHINGTON, April 22.-Everyth.ng was propitious for the opening of the base ball season in this city. The weather was clear, a band of music cheered a crowd numbering six thousand, the grounds were in excellent condition and the only incident displeasing to the assemblage was that the other club won. When Speaker Reed ap peared he was cheered by the spectators. In the box occupied by the speaker were several New York congressmen and Sen ator Smith, of New Jersey. Many prom inent society people were among the spec tators. The game started at a lively pace under the supervision of "Tim" Hurst, and it was found that the clubs were very evenly matched. Rellly's long shot for a home run which disappeared under a sign board was the signal for applause, which was repeated when "Germany" Smith was presented with a bouquet when he stepped to the plate. But for an unlucky throw by Demont In the sixth the score would have been in favor of Washington. There were two men out and two on bases when Can avan went to the bat. He sent an easy one to Demont, who made a bad throw, allowing the runner to reach first, and as a result two run3 were scored. Selbach and Demont gave several exhibitions of fast fielding.

"Opening day" hero was a success. The weather was delightful and the attendance num bered 17,014. The players paraded across the field company front and then raised the new flag while the band played tho "Star spangled Banner." Some dozen or more New Yorkers accompanied the visiting team from Gotham. The game was rather dull and long drawn out, and, on the part of the New Yorkers, was somewhat unsteadily and poorly played. Their four errors, ail wild throws, gave the local club their runs. In the seventh inning Taylor and Hallman reached first on wild throws by Davis and Joyce, and Lajoie then sent both home with a three-base drive to left center field. La joie then scored on Delehanty's hit. The Pniladelphias lost a chance for several runs by careless bass-running.

Hnin Knocked Out Hie Game with Grand Rapid Yesterday. Indianapolis was fortunate in getting an early start this season, for had the open ing day been yesterday there would have been a multitude of disappointed fans. There were enough as it was, for the second game would have attracted a good, big crowd. The storm which cams up about 2 o'clock killed all prospect of a same. This afternoon the teams wili get together for another argument, with either Goar or Wolters In tho box for Indianapolis and "Brownie" Foreman or Cross for Grand Rapids. Foreman Is a brother of the In dianapolis pitcher and quite a twirler for a little fellow. He gets his nickname from his small size. The players of both clubs were at practice most of j'esterday fore noon at the park. The games to-day and to-morrow finish the first Grand Rapids series and on Monday Detroit comes for four games. Next Friday Indianapolis opens the Detroit season and, according to reports from there, the "rooters" are im patiently awaiting the event. Indianapolis will be away for twelve games and will then bring the Columbus team back home for a series of three games before leaving on the first Western trip. McFarland was limping some yesterday, his ankle being weak from the wrench it got Wednesday. Manager Watklns says he will be able to play center to-day, however. Ilunebnll Note.
