I Mike Tlornan, the great Now York riant
Adder, came to this city from his borne at
li Trenton on Monday for the rmrpote of
! signing contract for next season. Hike
I i went homo yesterdar without putting his
I i name to the contract. The reason wan that ho
I; And President Day could not acre upon
1'Jf terms. When Mike stoned his contract forlast
J season he demanded an increased salary, and
got It without much trouble.
This season Mike mado another demand for
an Increase, but he asked for so much that Mr.
Day absolutely refused to listen to falm. Mr.
Ifl Say U not the man to beat about the bush, so
f be told Tlernan that ho was paying him, ho be-
Iliered, as high if not a higher salary than nay
regular outfielder rcolvod, and that he could
not think of paying the Increase demanded.
The exact figure InTlernan's case Is not
I known. He received about 12,500 for his work
last season, and tho Increase Is supposod to be
500, or $3,000 for his work next season. Mr.
Day would say but little about the trouble, but
be acknowlodgod that th foregoing acoount
was right. He thought, however, that Tlernnn
M would slcn alter ho had considered the matter.
9 Mike, he ncknowledsed.was n good ball player,
but hs thought that he was a little too sovoro
9 In his domnnd.
" I am sorry to hoar of this," remarked a
i M well-known playor, " but it will coma out all
1 fl right. Mike will play with the team next sea-
M I son just tho same."
I j pat Murphy, the Now York catcher, has also
c; ffl gone home without signing a contract. Mr.
II I Day said that there was no troublo at all in
: m J this onw, and that ho thought Pat would slcn
f ui Time."
I "Does Murphy want an increase, too!"
I, M i asked a reporter. ,. ...
II K "I don't Ttiiow," sold Mr. Day. He did not
" ml ji say so."
"t " Well, did ho say anything to lead you to be
lli 8 Ueve that he did f'f , ,. , ......
' Yos, I havo not tho slightest doubt that ho
would like to liavo his salary Increased; nt
least, that Is what I should judge from bis
talk: but he will sign Inter on, and I don't
think tliare will beany trouble about it"
Lato yesterday there was a report that a com
bination had been formed among some of tho
Mew York players to demnnd increased sola-
rle. As tbo men wore nil out of town, it could
not bo learned whethor there was any truth In
the story or not. President Day whs again
sought, and when tho rumor was made known
fix ft . he smiled and said:
"I don't know nnything about It. I don't
. ... , think, however, that tho inon would make any
, ( j such a move. The demands will no doubt be
. eonilned to four of llo players. Nearly all of
! the mon, I bnvo no doubt, will be sotUlled with
What they now get."
" t It was the general opinion about town that
m the team, not being satisfied with the title
J "champions," also wanted the championship
: salaries. No one dented that they wero entitled
i to all the roonoy they could get, but it was
j agreed that they should use judgment in tholr
fj V. demands. Many think tbnt they should be
III ; content for at least one year more with their
' 3' present salaries: but than they aro the meu
III , who mako the game, and they should hure all
111 that they are worth.
IS i Four of the New York players have signed for
! I next season. They nre Gore. Titcomb, Hat-
) 1 field, and Wolcb. O'ltourke is as good as
! feigned, for be has given bis word to do so.
M I Tim Keefe made n demand for $5,000 last
, season, but signed for something like $3,500.
: ' It is understood that he has rouewod his de
m . mand for $3,000 this soasom. Tim is contldont
a 9 that he and Mr. Day will be able to settle th
5 mutter without any trouble.
m One thing that does not seem very plain Is
';. how the hew York players are to get the
i desired Increase after Dec 15. ThonewLengue
i ' rules provide that tho President of each club.
shall send to the President of the league a
IB j sworn statement ns to the amount of salaries
paid to onch playor who has sicned or Is under
reservation to hi club. If a playor has not yet
H signed, tbon tho salary that he received forlast
i season will bo Inserted 10 tho statement. Alter
j ' ' this statoment has been received by the League
I I ' President no increase can be made In the play-
( , era salary. At the tlmo the playor signs with
JJ bis club he must also make a sworn statement
1 ffi I i as to the amount of money that he receives.
HI Where, then, will the player's Increase come in
y 11 ho does not sign by Saturday?
I k Dostoh. Dec 12. Al Reach, who Is now in
ji; this city, says that tho Philadelphia Club is
it now well provided with ulutors and will not
jl look much furthor. It is possiblo, he thought,
j thatanexehangoorso might bo made, for ths
j club would like to secure a player like Nash or
1 Denny, a thing that docs not seem ut all prob
I able. Mr. Beach laughed when he said that ho
J saw it stated In a paper that the Indianapolis
Club would exchange Denny for Wood. Fo
ur garty. and Mulvey. " Why uldn't they usk for
i the whole club, and he done w ith It V said he.
' " As for Nash. Philadelphia would dearly liko

could trot alone or with a running horse In
2:15, but when It came to a real race the horse
lost bis head and could not coma within five
seconds of his trial mark. Horsomen nil over
tho country now understood this matter thor
oughly, and private trials wore ot little acoount
After two hours' debate, when it appeared
likely that Mr. Wilson's motion in favor ot
awarding records only to those who had earned
them in regular races stood a chance of being
adoptod, silver-haired Brother Wallace sprang
to his foot, saying:
" This would knock the whole thing into pi
In a moment,"
Thereupon Second Vice-President Baker
moved that tho wbolo subject be referred to
tho Kxecutivo Committee. Tho motion was
carried. This means that tin-cup records will
bo in order lor another yenr.
A communication was received from tho Now

MR. ZVMLRT HAS BOURTBINO TO BAT
ABOUT A CERTAIN ALLEGED DLVFf.
Snlllvan'a Repreaeaiatlve Saya that Their
Depoatt Ueans Daslaeaa, nasi fae Thlaha
that Mr. Fox haa Becorao Coaoelentlon.
A. D. Lumloy, editor of the JWiMfraittJ"
Xetni, who Is John L. Bulllvan's renrssenUtlve,
read Tng Bun yesterdny morning, and waa
ready to Aro hot shot at Mitchell and Richard
K. Fox In the evening, when a reporter callod
upon him. lie said:
"I don't soe how Mitchell can characterize
our posting $5,000 to make a match as a bluff,
aad as to Mr. Fox leaving himself amenable to
the law and liable to arrest tho moment ho at
tempts to cover our deposit, that is nonsense.
According to that, Mr. Fox breaks the Inw
right along In posting and covering bets.
Take, for Instance Mike Cushlng'a case. That
fighter has $200 on denoslt In Fox's oDlco now.
to moot Walsh of Pittsburgh, Fox roasted Sul
livan when John was sick and unable to de
fend hlmsolf, saying what he wouldn't do for
Kllratn In tho way ot backing, and how qutokly
Jake would best Sully. When wo placod $5,000
In the hands ot the AWo York HeraWt Paris
representative covering his monoy lorn fight.
Fox demandod that the stakes bo raised to
$10,009. A champion must fight for $1,000 It
necessary, and it did not suit our purpose at
that tlmo to make the match for more than
$5,000. Fox then instructed his representative
In New York to put up $2,500 with the Clipper,
and at once wont from Paris to London and
posted nn additional $2,500 with Atkinson of
the Svortino Life, making $10,000 in all. Is that
not bluHlng V .
" At that time wo woro not prepared to nnnio
our mnn, ns wo did not know whethor Bulllvan
would ever recover from bis lllnotB. Voti'ox
and his party tried the biggest blutllng game
on record, nnd he nnd Mitchell cry bin IT now,
when we want to make a square luatcli for
$111,000, and deposit $5,000 to show that wo aro
" It is amusing," continued Mr. Lnmloy. " to
henr Mitchell say that ho can't undorstnnd
why the newspapers ura down on him. Ho can
thank his own domlncorlng disposition for I ho
ronsting ho receives on all sides. He owes his
reputation to America, and he ought to be
more guarded lu his treatment of Americans.
It was in this country, too, that ho mado alt
hlsmonoy. It Is In very poor taste on Mitch
ell's part te crltloibo Jack Dompsoy's record,
and ask what class the men tho Nonpareil do
tented tratelled in. If Jack Demoioy's record
Isn't away above Mitchell's then I'm sadly mis
taken. What did the Druramagenchnpoverdo
that he should talk in this high und mighty
fashion ? lly tho crentost ot good luck ho made
a draw with John Ji at Chantllly. when the
champion bad ns good as broken his arm in
the fourth round. Mltcholl is very anxious to
meet Dompsoy In a ten-round glove contest.
I seo that ho will nover do as Dempsey wunta
htm to do on tbo turf nnd to a finish."
Mitchell and Kllniln will moot at tho Bruns
wick to-morrow morning and hold a consulta
tion as to what courso thoy will pursue in
rolerenco to Sullivan's challenge. Should they
decide to cover the deposit, which Is highly
Improbable, Sullivan will come on Irom Boston
and make Mb own match.
Jack Domnsoy. who is sparring with Donny
Costigan. at Hyde & Bohmun's. Brooklyn, saya
that he will pay no attention to any proposal to
spar Mitchell for ten rounds. His desire is to
get Chnrllo into tho twenty-four-foot ring, Lon
don priro ring rules, to a QnlBh.
Jim Glynn of Willlnmaburgb nnd Joe Lnnnon
of Boston, havo signed articles for n ten-round
glove contest at Palace ltlnk. Willlami'burgh,
during the early part of January. Ulynn wilt

The news that Tommy Warren had skipped
from California just as Spider Weir and his
backers wero nbout to leave Boston to meet the
cagey Thomas, under the auspices ot the Cali
fornia Athletic Club, for a large purso and an '
oul-ide bet of $1,500. caused the knowing ones
horo to -thnke their lu-nds nnd mutter. "Itolil
yon so." Warren i .ifrald of Wolr, and took to
the woods when he found that his bluff about
an outsldo but of $l,50i) would not go down.
Dominick McCaffrey says that ho beBted Fal
lon once nnd can do it again. Fallon prefers a
light to a finish, either London or Quoensberry
rules, to sparring a llnitod number ot rounds.

That meant that Tommy Wrirren didn't
want any part of Spidor Weir in spito of his
statements to the contrary. This upsots all of
Weir's calculations. His backers had alrcudy
purchased tickets for San Francisco. Edwurd
F. MoAvoy and Dan Murphy hnd planned to
accompany Weir to tho Pacltlc coast. Mc
Avoy Is tbo proprietor of tho Miller Houto. and
he had made arrnngoments to leao his hotel

'J he Spidor says It Is just as he expected, nnd
added: 'Several days ago I told my backer
that 1 did not think Warren would step Into a

Mr. Aaron Vanderbllt at tho monthly
mooting of tho Board ot Trade and Transpor
tation yestorday submitted the draft ot a bill
providing for a nnval militia for Now York
State. Mr. Vandorbilt explained that tho bill
had beon drawn under the supervision of Sec
retary Whitney, and was in full sympathy with
tho alms of the Nnvy Dopnrtmont It providos
that an enrollment of persons subjoct to mili
tary duty shall bo mado. and that thore shall

Naal Militia in ucb districts as the Commander-in-Chief

and crafts, tocother with shipowners and tholr
employoes. yacht owners, membors of yacht
Chios, and all other associations for aauatlo
pursuits, ami all ox-ofilcers and formor enlist
ed mon of tbe navy.
Tho uct provides nlso for tho organization by

POORLY PAID WORKERS.
Hewing Olrla' Wanes Too Low for Even
SnucnsE, Doc. 12. In respect of tho meet
ing held by the Working Women's Society of
sowing machine operators in Now Vork it 1b
learned that the New Vork firm referred to sent
an agent to this city to learn if work was
wantod at the charitable institutions for
women. He was sont to the Bureau of Labor
and Charities, where he was referred to Miss
Huntington, who Is lnterostod in getting suita
ble work for the cirls at tbo Sheltor. Tho agent
was askod to send samples of the work to be
done, and whon thoy arrived Miss Huntington
saw that no one oould afford to work for the
compensation offered. Hbo said it would bo no
work of charity to give such cheap employment
Miss Huntington told The Sun correspondent
to-day that sho would prefer not to
ditulge , tho namo of tho Arm who
had applied to her to distribute their
work in Syracuse. She feared the move
ment which her Investigation hnd provoked
might bo injured if tho name of tho Qrin were
just now made known. Miss Huntington says
she has ascertained that at the wages paid in
New Vork n girl would not be able to earn over
45 cents a day by steam macbino or 25 cents by
foot machine. Miss Huntington brought tho
subject before the Ladies' Employment Society
in this city last week, and by a committee of
that organization the nttentlon of the leading
dry goods morchants has been callod to the
slavery imposed by manufacturers. The mer
chants bavo invitod tho ladles to lay tho results
of their innulrios boforo them, and promise, if
what is stilted is shown to bo true, to throw out
goods furnished by Arms which underpay help.

In the Agreement or the Htewart Itelra
In Order to Tell what Mrs. Htevrart Bala,
It Is by no means certain that the pro
ponents In Miss Bosallo Butler's contest ot tb
will ot Mrs. Cornelia M. Btewart will hold tea
advantage that they gained at Tuosday's hear
ing In the Surrogate's Court when ther pitm4
that Mrs. Cornelia 8. Butlor. a witness for ttv
contestants, wns Interested in the breaking ot
the will and therefore Incompetent to tostlty la '
regard to communications alleged to hav
been recolvod from tho decodent. Mr. Choato,
senior counsel for Miss Bosalle Butlor, brougnt
new arguments to bear on the admissibility ot
the witness's testimony yesterday, and out
lined n plan whoroby the objections to her
evidence may be overcome. It Is thorofore still
possiblo that the nubile may learn what It wu
that Mrs. Stewart told Mrs. Butler ot th
statomontA nllegod to haro boon mad by
Judge Hilton to Mrs. Stewart on th day tf
Mr. A. T. Stewart's doath.
Tho witness chair remained vacant raster
day, while tho counsel woro engaged in artro- 6
ment. Mr. Choato did most ot tho talking 1ft "
his usual calm and dollberate manner. Mb
Choatn contendod that tho Surrogate had net
jurisdiction in regard to boqucsts of real es
tate. Ho had not the powor to rovoko the pro
bate ot a will In regard to boriuosu ot real etr '
tato. His power was confined to boquests cC
Lawyers ltussoll and Rollins opposed Mr,
Choate's argument brlofly, nnd asserted that
the Uurrogate did havo powor to revoke ths
probato of a will In Its ontlrety whon boauesta
of real and porsonal property wore mixed up.
Mr. Choato, resuming, arguod thnt it tbo Bar
rognto did not bnvo jurisdiction in tho present
case over tho real estate bequqste. Mrs. Butler
would loso considerable by tho revocation of
tho will, and could not, thorofore. bo held to b
an interested witness. If the will woro to bo
revoked In regard to tbo porsonal property "
only, Mrs. Butlor. who held one ot tho largest
of tho porsonal bequests under tho will, t'iOO.
000, would lose this nnd gain instead only her .
right of ono-third ot tho property which her j
husband. Mr. Frcscott Hnlo Butler, would re- 5
celvo as a next ot kiu. This would amount to
nbout $78,000. ,'
Surrogate Hansom said that he had nover .:
before hoard tbn point as to bin jurisdiction In
the hoquosts ot real ostate raised, nnd sup
posed It was brought out by tho exigencioflot i
the caso. No doubt oxlstod in his mind that '
tho Court did havo jurisdiction under section
2.491 ot tho Codo. subdivision n, which gave the ?
Surrorznto tho right to set aside tho probate of
any will against which fraud was alleged, ana H
on this ground he wonld be compelled to up-
hold his former ruling that Mrs. Butlor waa aa 1
interested wltnoss, and her testimony in regard M '
to declarations of the docedont Inadmissible. H
The petitioner (Miss Rosnllo Butler), tho Sur- i
rogate added, herself assumed that tho Court 1
had jurisdiction. Of course that did not pre- B
Tent the counsol from questioning his jurlsdlo- I
(Inn nt tin ttmn II
Mr. Ohoato repliod that the section qnoted br
the Surrogate reforrod only to cases where
fraud bod been prnctlsod on the Court and not
In tho execution of tbe will itself. Tho Hnrro.
gato reluscd to modify his ruling, nndfl Mr.
hoato thon asked that Mrs. Bntlors examina
tion might be ndjournod until he could exam
ine the statutes further. Surrogate Ransom
said thnt If ho found ho hnd been mistaken in ;
his ruling later ho would chango itand Mr.
Choate could then, if he desired, examine Mrs. .
Butlor further. Mr. Choato wanted to take up
tho examination of other wltnessos, but conn- ,
eel for Judge Hilton objected to this until Mrs, f)
Butler should be disposed of, Mr. Choate said
fio would advise Mrs. Butler to execute a re
ease of hor share In tho agreement In order
to qualify as a witness under the Surrogate's
ruling. Surrogate Ransom said that there
could benoobjoctlon to hor testifying In that:
event, and counsel for Judge Hilton admitted
this to be bo. The hearing will bo continued!
