TTnr Hurts the Bummer Schedule, but There
Are Ills Finns for the Foil,
Tho nthlotlo season among tho mombors of
tho Y. SI. 0. A. thus far has been n very dull
ono. and It Is not at all unlikely that all tho
plans talked of at tho beginning of tho soasoa
I maybe abandoned. Tho causoof this Is that
many of tho crack uthletes of tho various
I branches aro at tho front with their respectlvo
I regiments, and then ngaln tho army work that
Is being dono by tho different associations
causes tho Interest In nthlotlcs to bo
forgotten for tho tlmo being, Tho associations
In tho West aro all very much taken up with
army work. Ono of tho throe tents which has
been used by tho 15.000 troops at Camp Mor
rltt, flan Fmnclsco. has gono with tho third ex
pedition to tho Philippines Inohsntoof Frank
A. Jackson of San Francisco and 0. A. Olunz of
Oakland, both of whom aro experienced asso
ciation men nnd strong nthlctos.
Dosplto thoso drawbacks It is llkoly that a
few special events will bo held, or, at least,
some lndt idunl branch will glvo a net of games,
but tho annual games which woro to bn held
under tho auspices of tho Y M. C. A. Athlctlo
Leoguoof North Amorlea havo been postponed.
Tho physical directors snythat nhouldthowar
bo ovor by tho tlmo tho fall and winter season
sets In, tho latter will bo ono of tho busiest of
tho association. Features aro already being ar
ranged for the fall and wlntorsoason.nnd sovoral
now ovonts will bo added to tho nlroody long
list, tho most popular of which will bo hockoy.
(l. K. 1'atterson of tho Y. M. C. A. Athlotlo
League of Nortli Amerioa tried togot the mem
bers to tako up tho gamoot liookoy last year,
hut somehow or other his efforts did not bear
fruit. 1'atterson thinks that, tr athletically In
clined members of theY. JI.O. A. can recognizo
a good thing whon thoy seo It. they will tako up
the gamo as played by their friends in Canada
and adopt It as ono of tho forms of sport
eminently desirable Ho says it is nn ideal
gnmo for them to play, It Is within tholr
mpans and easy to learn.
Another thing likely to bo Introduced In tho
gymnasiums this fall is tho gamo of nowcomb,
which was first played at Now Orleans, Tho
Xamo Is somewhat after tho stylo of basketball.
. lino Is drawn In tho eentro of tho gymnasium,
and nbout eight feet from it on either sidoia
another lino. Those aro called tho " base linos."
Tho dlBtnneo may vary, tho sir.o of tho room
tii'ing taken into account. Two sldos nro
then choson by tho captain, tho num
ber playing depending upon tho avoll
ablo spaoo. Twelve or fifteen on a sido
nro a good number. Tho players of each
team thou take their positions between tho
base lines and wall so that thoy faeo each
other. A basketball or football may bo used.
Tho rofereo throws tho ball to one of tho sides.
Tho object of tho player who catches It Is to
throw it toward Ills opponent so that It will
touch tho floor behind tho bnso lino. If he
docs this it counts ns throe points for his side.
The player on the sido to which tho ball is
thrown must try to keep It from touching tho
floor, and, if successful, ho must immediately
throw it back to his opponent. This passing to
and fro is kept up until a touohdown is mado.
If tho hall Is thrown and touches tho floor be
twoon tho base lines, ono point Is scored against
tho side throwing tho ball. Ono point Is also
Bcored on all fouls. The most important rulos
of tho gamo aro as follows:
Rule 1 Th ball may be thrown with ono or both
hands, but the person must not throw It whllo he U
down on ht knees.
Rule 2 A player must notran with the hall.
Rule a A player mutt not hold tbo ball too lone.
The proper leuitU ot tlmo 1I1UI bo determined by
the referee.
Rule 4 A player must not atep over the base line.
llreaMng any of the above rules shall count as a
foul, and one point shall bo gUeu In eachlcaae to the
widonot In fault.
Tho length of tho camo shall bo decided by
tho captains of tho teams and tho referee bo
foro piny begins, nnd tho sido having tho moat
points nt tho allotted tlmo shall bo the winner.
Two halves of twenty-five minutes each, with
ton minutes' rest, aro usually played.
Boskotball will hn bv nn mpntm overlooked:
In fact, tho game will uo played moro than over.
This season will soo n Y'.jl. 0. A. baketbnll
league. In which will bo entered tho
best teams of this olty nnd witldn a
radius of sixty miles. A meeting for
that purpose will bo held soon nnd
ofllcers elected, Bules will be adopted and
after It Is known how many tenuis will onter a
sehodulo will bo arranged. The games, from
what already has been said, will bo played on
neutral grounds, with tho view of doing away
with the wrangling that was so much in evi
dence last year. Tho trophy will be n handsome
slUer loving cup, and medals will also be
nwardod to tho individuals doing tho best
For several years tho Now York association
furnished for a small feo ample athletlo
grounds and boating accommodations to Ball
members of Its various branches. Thesowero
well patronized until last year, when city im-
Crovements swallowed up tho grounds, Tho
oathouso remained on tho Harlom Blver
until this season, when it was re
in ovod to Oak Point on tho Sound. This
season four of tho brnnchos hnvo soo
11 red and fitted up small nthlotlo grounds.
Through a happy chain of circumstances tho
Brooklyn association Is tills year Privileged for
the first timo in its history to havo Its own
house at Bath Beach. There tho association
now owns a noat houso erected for tho ex
clusive) use of Its members.

Tho shipment will approximate $200,000,
somo of It running as high as $50,000 a ton.
Tho ore was mined In tho Hidden Troaauro

BAlNimiixiE, 0., July 7. Ton or twolvo
years boforo tho admission ot Ohio Into tho
Union, n small band of adventurers wandered
over tho Appalachian Mountains, crossed tho
murky Ohio Blver on Impromptu rafts, and
pushed on through tho prlmct nl forest as far as
tho junction ot tho Paint and Bocky crooks,
now a pnrtof tho boundary lino between High
land and Boss counties, 0.,nnd known as Bocky
Pork. There was not a man among thorn who

Long boforo tho adventurers' ndvont. Bocky
Fork had been n favorite haunt of tho Indians
and tho flold of many n bloody contest for pos
BOBslon between tho Sclotos and tho Chllll

ruptod tho sanguinary dispute of tho red men,
who united their forces to oppose tho common
whlto-sklnncd foo. Tho latter, how over, had
como to stay, and after several sharp and do
clslvo battles convinced tho red mon of tho nn
alterabloncss of this determination. Tho In
dians finally left them In pcaco and possession,
and tho plon'oors began a sort of Arcadian ox
lstenco, which continues to this day. Bocky
Fork to-day Is ns much out ot tutio with tho

On four occasions slnco Its settlement Rocky

which onabltd tho Bottlers to reach nnd rotnln
their Arcadia. Tho first was tho war of 1812 ; tho
second, tho Mexican war; tho third, tho war of
tho rebellion, nnd tho fourth, tho presont conflict
with Bpaln. In tho first three wars Bocky Fork
wns almost entirely drained of Its men, and It
is a matter of local prldo nnd record that only
tho physically disqualified remained bohlnd
when tho calls for voluntoors went forth. It Is
also a matter of local record that fow of thoso
who hastened to tho front ever returned. In
tho civil wnr ovory nble-bodlod man wns in line

When President McKinloy issued his first call

ovor In tho talloy. Tho younger men hurried
off to enlist In regiments that seemed certain
to seo Bortlco at tho front, and many of tho vet
erans of tho civil war woro cogerto repeat their
exploits of tho post. But greatly to tho sorrow
and chagrin of tho latter, admission to tho
forces of Undo Stun was refused them. A su
perbly built Blx-footor. bronzed nnd beardod,
and as nctlvo as a youth desplto his 55 years,
thus described his experiences when ho tried
to beeomo a soldier again:
" I wont to Cincinnati to enlist, and took along
my commission nnd discharge papers to show
tho enlisting peoplo that my credentials wero
first rate. I found an enlistment offlco all right.
ana went up with a crowd of young fellows to
offer myself. There was a smart young ser
geant at a desk. and. when my turn camo, I
went up to him. Ho looked mo otor with a
sneerln' kind of n smile. I took it. nnd asked mo

tho youngster 1 wns there to enlist, oud was
Sreparod to stand examination. Hut ho shook
Is head, and got off somo kind of rlgmarolo
about gratlfyln'evldenco of patriotism, and so
on. but said tho country couldn't accept me. I
askod him why. very much surprised, and laid
my pnpors before him. Ho looked them ovor
with a patronlzin', careless air: but when hu
found I'd been a captuin during tho rebellion
hn klndercamo down a llttlo oil his high horso
and wns n trlflo moro polito. Says ho, 'Can't
accept you. Contain. You're too old.' Says I.
'Too old? Well. 1 reckon not.' Says he again.
Yes. you are.' Says I to this. "I'll show you,
young inan, yoif'ro wrong.'
"And then I stooped down nnd picked him
up by tho collar and whirled him around just u
few times to convince him of his bad mistake.
By the tlmo 1 had sufilclently illustrated,
durned if they didn't have mo nrrested nnd
marched off to a court. Howovor. the Judgo
who tried mo was a pleasant fellow, just about
my own ago and style, und when I told my sido
of thu story ho simply smiled, shook hands
with mo. and said ho was glad I had convinced
the Binart young enllstln' Bergcant'that n fow
years moio or less did not disturb eomo men's
flglitin' ability and readiness to proto it.
'Ho didn't linn mo by any means, and after

be, only it wasn't. I camo back homo and told
somo of tho boys who had been with mo under

1810. This cortalnty, from a deposition mado
at tho tlmoi cnnblos tho rocord-senrcher to sur
round tho old crime with Its associations.
Among these associations Is the auarent fact
that, whon his father was a tugitlvo criminal,
Bogor B. Taney was nn ntitl-slavury man.
Just before tho crime was committed Bogor
B. Tanoy said ut Froderlcktown, in tho defenco
of tho Bov. Jacob Grubor, " Wo aro prepared
to maintain the samo principles. A hard neces
sity cotnpols us to end uro the 0 tils of slavery
for n tlmo. Yot whllo It continues it is n blot on
our national eharactor. and every real lovur of
freedom confidently hopes that it will bo effectu
ally, though It must bo gradually, wiped away,
and earnestly looks for tho meanB by which
this ucoossary object may bo best attained.
And until it can bo accomplished, until tho tlmo
shall como when wo enn point without 11 blush
to tho langungo hold in tho Declaration ot In
dependence, ovory friend ct Immunity will seek
to lighten tho galling chain ot slavery."
It was the March boforo tho Mngrudor mur
der that ltotfcr B. Taney defended tho Bov.
Mr. Grubor, who had boon Indicted for insur
rection nnd rebellion In preaching n sermon
against the morality of slat ery. Taney's open
ing spoech Is probably tho only historical
bprooh hu over made before ho became Jack
sou's Cabinet ofllcer, somo thirteen years
According to J?ile's Jlegiiter, Boger B, Tanoy
refused to sustain resolutions in tho Maryland
Legislature to put slavory into Missouri in
1820. Ho was then in tho Statu Senate at An
napolis, choson by tho olectornto, not tho poo
plo. Tho peoplo having refused to olect him
llrst from Caltort, next from Fredorick county,
ho was appointed among tbo Senatorial elec
tors who elucted tho legislative "upper houso "
und elected himself.
Tho application of Missouri to beeomo a Btato
was followed by tho resolution ot Jnmes Tull
mago of Now York forbidding slavery within
Missouri. Tho solid delegation of Now York
voted yea, and thus prepared tho way for Freo
Bolllsin under Martin Vim Burou. Tho slate
States called upon Maryland to assist them, and
William Piuknoy took his seat In tho Scnnto to
lead tho pro-slavery Bide, although in fresher
llfo he had anticipated Taney's excoriation of
Tho Maryland Scnnto took up nnd nmended
tho House resolution by the words, "That tho
Senators and Boproscntatltcs from Maryland
in Congress bo requested to uso their utmost
endeavors to prevent tho prohibition ot slatory
from bolng required of Missouri us a condition
of itsndmission." This amendment . usimssed.
Then Mr. Cnrinlohacl offorcd a resolution de
clining to pass tho Houso resolution because
tho subject belonged exclusltoly to Congress.
This was defeated.
Tho passage of tho resolution as amended by
tho Seuato then camo up, and tho yeas and
nays were required.
Tho yeas wcro tho President of tho' Scnnto
and Senators Emerson, Gale, Harper, Howard,
Uughlett, Jackson, Magruderand Farnham.
Against tho resolution of Instructions were
Carmichaol, Crosay, Uollydny, Tanoy nnd West.
Nothing of this nppuarsln Tyler's ofMcial llfo

It. Tho fact, therefore. Is that Tunoy, as a
Federalist, must havo been a United States
Bank man, that having boon a Federal meas
ure, yot ho, in Jackson's Cabinet, nssasslnutod
tho bank.
Ho also was. In 1820. an opponent ot tho ex
tension ot slatory oven to Missouri, and voted
against so Instructing tho Maryland delegation.
Yot, thirty-nino yearn afterward, ho pronounced
ItunconBtitutlonal to prohibit slavery In Kan

Justlco Tanoy, attacked at Taney's houso a
young neighbor named John Magrudor with a
dirk kulfu, nnd Mngrudor dlod of tho wound In
about four hours in Ids slayer's bouse, which
still fitauds on Patuxent Uiterat Battel Creek
The cause of tho crime, as appears from the
deposition of the only witness to it. Waltor W.
W iggen, wns a young woman who tt as tho sub
ject of Tanoy B jealousy whon his youthful
neighbor. Mngruder, beeamo also her admirer.
Tho aflldavitof Wiggcn says that ho and Mu-
8 ruder and one other person, Alfred Wood, took
inner with Tanoy, had wine, and inter wont
bathing. Taney remained on shore. On their
return to Tuney's house, "u conversation took
placo betwoon Michael Tanoy und John Magru
dor respecting a young lady, and John Mngni
dnr told thu said Tanuy Hint 'ho would opposo
him.' As soon as Mr. Magrudor made use ot
that expression Mr. Taney told him thoro wcro
girls enough, and that ho. Tnnoy. had bcon
there himself. Magrudor then repeated tho
above expression.
"Thon he, Tanoy, rose from his chair and
from thenco (the next room) brought a dirk and
presented it at Mtigruder's breast."
The aflldnvlt goes on to say that Mugruder
caught tho knife ond exhibited u pistol. Taney
said ho could show pistols, too. and from nn
othor room ho fetched two pistols. Thoy went
11110 ximey a yBtxi to ngni ran tno pistols nt
from ten to twelto foot. Each discovered then
that his opponent's pistol had no flint At tills
discovery Magrudor was amused, butold Tuner
became tho more enraged.
Tanoy threty Ills pistol away; ho drew tho
dirk and with it stabbed Magruder In tho right
breast. Magruder said. " You havo hurt me?'
lanoythuu discarded Ills knife, nnd taking
Magrudnr's rlslol said ho was sorry andjnit
his handkerchief to the wound andusslsted Ma
gruder into the houso.
Magrudor asked Walter Wiggcn to get n doc

Magrudor until ho died, presumably at night.
Thu Clork of Court of Cnlvert county, Gcorgo
W.Dpwell. now living, adds to thu uboto de
position tho statement that tho murdurer did
not remain bosldo Ills victim, but Immediately
fled across the Patuxent Blver. there somo two
miles wldo. and escaped to Virginia, where
ho died or met a violent death.
1 hree brothers of MnKrudor. named Alexan

vorgo of war, whon tho great Samoan hurricane H
mado wreokogo of tho warships In Apia harbor. H
From Bobort Louis Btovonson's "AFootnoti H
to History," written In Samoa, tho following Hj
facts nro condonpod: H
By tho machinations ot tho Germans. Tam- Hj
&B0B0. a puppet, had bcon declared King. M4. M
tan fa. supported by a strong Samoan party, lmd H
recourse to arms against Tamaseso's Govern- I
mont. Tho Germans camo to his nsalHtnno H
and set nn armed forco ashore from Die ttar H
ships, nnd thoro was a battlo In which flfty-Mi H
Germans toll. Mataafa, summoned on board
of tho Gorman tuirshlp Adler, declined to H
go. Martial law wns declared, nml an English I
vessel was searched for contraband of war. H
Moreover, certain territorial rights of la H
Americans and British suffered Infringement. H
nnd tho Americans in particular were ttrmh.
for thn Germans had boen for some time enr- A
rytng matters with too high n hand in n dor- H
eminent siipposod to ho subject equally to tt
British, Gorman, and Amorlean control Throat H
American Bhlps nnd three German ships fneej IE
each other grimly In Apia Bay, whllo one llrit- H
Islislilp looked on, not with Indifference Ones
tho German gun-ports hud been lottered-niil RJ
put up again. Tho temper of tho American I
sailors was far from peaceful. War hung on a I
hair-trigger, and thon camo tho hurricane. H
Tho ships in Apia Bay.in March. INHlt. were H
tho Nipslc, Yandnlla and Trenton, American, H
under Bear Admiral Kimbcrley; the Adler, H
Ebor'and Olgn. Gormnn, under Capt Frltr.s, HJ
and tho Calliope, British, under Capt Knni. H
On March 15 there wns n drop In the barometer H
to warn thn boldest of ships off a lee shore, hut HJ
fighting blood was up, nnd, blow high or blow H
low. tho Americans and Germans lay sullenly BJ
at anchor, oach dotormlnod not to lenvo tho tiny H
to tho othor, though destruction rose In their Hj
pntli. With Capt. Kano there was less reason HJ
for staying, but he, too, stuck to his an- HJ
chorngo. By daybreak of March 10 U19 W
vessels In tho llttlo bottlo-shnpcd harbor vera HJ
plunging in a fearful sea. In thu narrow en- HJ
franco to tho harbor tho Trenton was holding H
hor position. Inside Amorica nnd Germany HJ
had como together in an unforeseen mnnncr, HJ
for tho Adlor and Nipslc, in thoso contracted M
quarters, had bumped, nnd tho Olgn. too, had H
rubbed ngalnst tho Adler. All hnd suffered, H
though not soriously; but the third Gormna H
fihlp. tho Ebcr. hnd dragged her anchor, striuk BJ
n coral reef, and gono down with nil on board V
save four, who cscapod. Seventy-six were ffl
drowned. An hour later tho Nipslo drove la n
clear of the reef and beached on n Band spit. HJ
somo of her crow being lost In tho nttompt to HI
get ashore. HJ
Next came tho Adler. for noanchor could hold ffl
ngninst such a sea. Straight down upon tha W
reef, where already tho bodlesof tho Eber's un- H
tortunntes wero being battered on the coral.shs Hj
bore; but. moro fortunate tlmn her slstorshlp. HJ
sho wns lifted clean up upon tho reof, whore she HJ
lay with broken back, flung so high that la U
cnlm weather tho swoll barely dampons her HJ
skeleton. On shore Mataafu's men wcro under H
arms, but In this oxtrcmlty of their foes thoy HJ
camo gallantly forward to help In tho rescue. H
nnd did yeoman work. Thoy reachod tho wreck HJ
by the most valiant efforts and brought back a HJ
line, but it was broken, and not until the follow- HJ
lngday wero the ercw rescued by llfo linos. HJ
Twenty had been lost. H
Menntimo tho Calliope, menaced by tho drift- HJ
Ing Vnndnlla and tho Olga. both of which were HJ
dragging their anchors, cast looso, and staking HJ
everything on tho power of her engines, made HJ
for tho open sen. Literally foot by foot she HJ
forged ahead In tho tooth of tho racing moun- HJ
tains of waves and found tho Trenton In her HJ
way. Of what followed Stevenson writes: HJ
"In tho fairway of tho entrance tho flagship H
Trenton still held on. Her rudder was broken. H
hor wheel carried awny; within sho was flooded H
with water from tho peccant hawsoplpcs; she H
had just mado tho signal 'fires extinguished' HJ
and lay helpless awaiting tho Inevitable end. HJ
Between this melancholy hulk nnd the exter-
nnl reef Kane must find a path. Steering
within fifty yards of tho rocf (for which she HI
was actually beaded), nnd her foroynrd pass- Uj
Ing on tho other hand over tho Trenton's H
qunrter as sho rolled, tho Calllopo steered H
between tho rival dangers, camo to the wind 9
trlumphnntly, and was onco moro pointed m
fortho sea and safety. Not often In navnl his- ID
tory was there a moment of moro sickening
peril, nnd It was dignified by Ono of those lnel- H
dents thnt reconcile tho chronicler with his H
otlierwlsonbhorront task. From tho doomed HJ
flngshlp tho Americans hailed thn success of I
the English with nehoor. It was led by thn old H
Admiral in person, rang out over tho storm H
with holiday vigor, nnd was answered by tha HJ
Calllopo with an omotlon easily conceived." HJ
It was In roforonco to this gallant courtesy
that Capt. Kane, on his return with tho only
Bhlp which survtted tho hurricane, wroto to
Admiral Klmberloy nnd received tho reply:
"Wo could not havo been gladder If It had
been ono of our ships, for In a time like that
blood Is thicker than wnter.'"
Tho Trenton was near her doom. Shortly
after the Calliope fought her way out thn Vua
dnllu crashed upon tho reef and settled, her
Captain nnd forty-two of her men being swept
otorboard. Tho Trenton parted her cables at 3
o'clock In tho afternoon of tho 10th nnd bore
down toward tho samo spot, not directly,
but staggering llko a drunken giant, to
tno distress of the Olga, which dodgod
tho blggor ship as best sho could; but
though skilfully handled, sho could not
avoid tho Amerloan, and thoy came to- m
gcthor. Undor steam and sail tho German H
Captain beached his ship safely on sand. The H
Trenton, going slowly, approached tho Van- H
dalia and by means of rockets got ropes to the H
mon on her slstor ship's masts and took thorn H
off before sho herself settled alongsldo the
Vandnlla and pounded thoro. Only ono man HJ
was lost from thu Trouton, and It was nluiruo- H
terlstlo of tho American Admiral's spirit that HJ
ho hod up tho band and scut tho strains of HJ
"Hull Columbia" blaring through thn storm. HJ
On tho morning of March 17 Mntaafa's war-
rlors wore again forward In thu work of rescue, BJ
for which both America und Gormnn vrow.trdei H
them with gifts later on. But now there wer HJ
chances of trouble again. Thn Americans and HI
Germans wore together on the bench Not B
cteu tho torrlblo o.xi.urlunco of tho hui rioatis HI
and tho fate of their comrades and wrecked BD
warships had subdued tholr fighting blood. H
Admiral Klmberloy formed camp, had his B
quarter sontlnollod. and gate strict orders that
any man disregarding a challenge should b H
shot dead. Furthermore ho gavo notice that BJ
he would destroy tho atook of any saloonkeoper ME
