President Kimick Poinls Out What llie League Law Is. flGDMBEBT REFUSES CHICAGO'S BID. 'An Interesting Two-Year-Old Eace Between Local Tonngsters. GENERAL SPORTING SEWS OF TEE DAT Baseball enthusiasts are now given an .other instalment of interesting news con cerning the Australian ball players, that is the players now covering the world's circuit tinder the guidance or order of President Spalding, of the Chicago club. Al Pratt, who has been on a brief visit West, returned yes terday, and he told of the contents of a very important letter that Mr. Walter Spalding had received from President Al Spalding. The letter referred definitely to two very important features of tbe trip, probably the most Important. Mr. Pratt read the letter, and yesterday he said: "Mr. Spalding's letter from Australia to his brother, "Walter, oucht to allay all anxiety about the Australian teams playing exhibition Kaines in this country when they return. Al Spalding distinctly says in his letter thatall the players now under his charge hare pledged ; themselves to remain with him until the Ameri- can programme is carried out. President Spald ing's letter leaves no doubt whatever on this point, and it is safe to say that the boys who have BRAVED ALL THE CHANCES with Spalding in foreign countries, will not de sert him when they arrive at home. All the talk about the various clubs going to do this and that, I pay little attention to, because every player in the two teams now across tbe seas is getting tbe best of practice and exercise. Cer tainly if any player sticks to Spalding thelatter will never desert him, and it may be found that Al Spalding is a very determined business man." The statement made by Mr. Pratt, or at least by Mr. Al Spalding's letter, is a very signifi cant one to the League clubs. It now seems certain that the -Australians' will not got home until a considerable time after the time for reporting to the respective clubs has been announced. If this is to be so then the right of various clubs to claim the services of cer tain players will become discussable. Whether the players who have roughed or gloried it with Spalding on a very great and experiment al trip will respond In person to any calls that their clubs may make remains to be seen. The fact remains, however, that recording to Presi dent Spalding the players now with him mean to stick to his enterprise providing it does not prevent them from taking part in the first of the championship cames. However, there is another fcaturo of the question, that is the part that nianacers and other officials of local clubs will plav in the af fair. It has already been stated that Pittsburg, that proverbial place, will demand the fulfil ment of every feature of aU or any contracts made with its plavers. In other words, it is claimed that tbe Pittsburg club demands Car roll on the first day of the season. THOSE OKDEES TO REPORT. There is also a desire to give JIanlon the same orders. Whether the club can accom plish what is desired or not remains to be seen. True it is that the local club is not now so dis posed to higgle about players as formerly. The truth is that there is not that amount of anxiety for Rowc now as there was a short time since. The same spirit may operate in tbe Hanlon case. He is not signed yet, and he may be ciren a little unusual latitude simply because he is supposed to be all right. It is understood, how ever, that the club wants both Carroll and Hanlon at tbe first of the season. Both men are playing regularly and are playing in good form, probably better than they did last September. Their absence for a few exhibition games will certainly not interfere with the practice of other players of the club. What the experi ments could do with Carroll and Hanlon J resent they could do when they are absent, n tbe meantime the two players named are in safe keeping. But it the Pittsburg club and others are de termined on claiming tbeir respective pounds of flesh when the teams arrive in this country there wUl be many excellent programmes spoiled, more correctly speaking, ruined. Speaking generously it does not seem that any club's practice will be interfered with by the absence of any particular member of that team. It is also probable that tbe club that persist in having their own from Spalding's two teams may incur a public dis favor that will be difficult to overcome. We all want to see the two teams just as they played in the presence of foreign potentates and rulers. uoever stops us from enjoying this pleasure will have a troublesome time in explaining matters. President Spalding's letter also stated that the trip throughout Australia had been a financial success. Money has been made there, but President Spalding states that the trip from Australia to America by the route now being traveled will be expensive. As a result the venture will not be a financial success taken as a whole. President Spalding points out that as a total outlay tbe trip will cost him a considerable sum of money. All this goes to show tbe necessity of every" club stretching a few points to help the teams when they return. WILL CLOSE TO-DAY. The Local Dos Show Continues to Attract Thousands. To-day will finish the dog show, and those who have not seen all the attractions at the rink had better do so before the excellent canines are taken away. Yesterday the rink was crowded with delighted spectators as on Wednesday. There was much to amuse and instruct, and one pleasing feature was the large attendance of ladies. Of course, the perform ing dogs of Prof. Parker were the admiration of all who saw them. They ill perform twice to-day. All the dogs on exhibit will be retained at tbe rink until to-morrow, or'at least none will he allowed to go until after 10 o'clock this evening. Yesterday tbe mastiffs and the pointers attracted large crowds. MADE A MATCH. Simcox'a Yonncster Will Tackle a Western Tvro-Yenr-Old. Samuel Pimcox. of McKeesport, has secured a race for his 2-year-old colt, Dunbom Wilkes, with "a "Western man. who will put a filly against Wilkes. The race will beforEJjO, or double yiat amount, and will take place at Cleveland alter Wilkes comes back from Chi cago, where he will be sent next week. Simcox has purchased of Will Scott, of Pittsburg, the mare Mohair, bred from Hull and Haute Kporks. The horse is legistered and is valuable. He refused $1,000 for her im mediately after the purchase was made. She is 4 years of age. Simcox savs be will make a number of races through hi's recent challenge published in The Dispatch. COULDN'T AGREE. Ridge Wanted Too Mnch Start From Ed McClelland. The backers of Joe Ridge and EL C.McO el land met at this office last evening to try and make a match for a ten-mile foot race. Nothing definite was done, however, as tbe McClelland party refused to concede Ridge a quarter of a mile start. McClelland's backer stated that his man would give Ridge 100 yards start in 10 miles, and after much argument Increased it to 125 yards. The Ridge party came down to 250 yards and there negotiations ceased. No doubt Ridge is offered a good looking start, and it may be that his backers will make a match at those conditions to-night. Ridge's brother will be at this office between 720 and 8 o'clock prepared to talk business. They Remember O'Connor. Advices received here from San Francisco state that O'Connor, in his proposed race with Gandaur. will be knocked out of his cherished idea of big gate receipts and will have to row alone for the money for which the race is made. It is further stated on account of tbe action of the O'Connor people regarding reference to the gate rccelp celnts in the race he rowed with Peter son at California. A well-known sculler who speaks of the matter in letters received here says that newspaper men and sporting people of San Francisco have not forgotten O'Connor ia the Peterson race. ANOTHER VIEW OF IT. President Xlmlck Stnles Hi Opinion of Reserved PlnTers' Rlshta. The statement by President Al Spalding to the effect that all the baU players traveling with him will play exhibition games in this country when they return, is causing consider able discussion. Yesterday President Kimick stated definitely that the Pittsburg club wants CarroU on April 1, or as soon after that as pos sible. The President expressed the idea that CarroU would be required here as soon as he landed in this country. Aside from the local features, however. Pres ident Nimick pointed out that no reserved player has the right to play with any other team than that by which ho is reserved. If tbe players now traveling with Spalding remain as two teams and play against each other as such, Mr. Nimick argues that there is no baseball law that will allow it. In other words, the laws of the League will have to be changed before a reserved player can, at his own free will, play when he chooses before the opening of the championship sea son. Altogether the question is likely to stir up a considerable discussion on technicalities if the "Australian" players persist in remain ing with Spalding until the programme is finished. Spalding certainly has personal con tracts with the players which will continue until certain dates. These contracts may be as binding as any others. GDMBERT WONT PITCH. Ho Refuses to Sign With Chicngo for S2, 500 for the Season. Ad Gumbert, the well known local pitcher, made a plain statement yesterday regarding his intentions for next season. He stated defi nitely that he will not pitch next year. During a conversation he said: "1 have received a contract from the Chicago club asking mo to sign for S2.500 for next sea son. I cannot do this because I cannot get leave of absence from my duties in thePro- thonotary's office. 1 would like to play next season, but I am not prepared to risk my situa tion in tbe matter." Gnmbert w cnt on to say that he expected to pitch for tbe East End Athletics next season, but that he was objected to because of being a professional. He claims he is not, and that is the amusing feature of the affair. lUutrie's Speech. When Manager Mutrie had finished his con ference with Messrs. Day and Byrne yesterday he started to walk down Sixth avenue. In passing through the crowd of strikers near tbe car stables he was recognized by some of the men, who shouted, "Hello, Jim!" "How are you?" said Jim very meekly. "Oh, we're better strikers than you've got," replied one of the men. Then a call was made for a speech, and as Jim edged his way through the crowd he said something like this: "Gentlemen I am glad to see so many strikers around me. I am used to managing strikers. Cries of "Oh, you arc, eh?" "Wo thought the Giants hit the ball once in a while." That interruption is unbecoming such good strikers as you arc My men some times have three strikes before they go out. You go out on the first strike and never kick at tbe umpire." "That's a base hit, Jim." interrupted a short gentleman in a blue jumper and a red face. "I should advise you not to break the law ," Mr. Mutrie was saying when somebody shouted "Slide!" and did Jim slide. He got out of sight very quicklv. and passed the Sun office out of breath. -V. T. Sun. Mnddcn's Confidence. A letter was received in this city yesterday from Billy Madden, who is located at Beliot, Wis., training Jack McAuIiffe for tbe fight with Billv Mvere. Madden thinks that Mc AuIiffe will win and wants to secure a date for him to appear in an exhibition in this city when returning from the West. Baseball Notes. Little Davt Force is to play in St. Joseph next season. Jonx Morrill will coach the team at Wesley an University. And now they say that Anson will write a book containing his impressions of the baseball tour around the world. It is very probable that the Clevelands will go to Hot Springs about March 15 to get into conaiuon ior me ieague struggle. Ross Barnes, the former popular second baseman of the Boston club, is now a member of the Chicago Stock Exchange, and is worth 8100.000. Ex-President Stearvs is trying to bet a hit with somebody that White and Rowe will ultimately sign with the clubs to which they were assigned. Detroit Free Press. Long Jim Whitney, once of the Bostons, has arrived in the City of Culture. He says he is in prime condition and will do some great twirling next season. The classification rule breaks Jim all up and he is greatly opposed to it. The Cleveland club has received a letter from Pitcher Proesser. the ex-Texan, asking what disposition would be made of him. A re ply telling him that his release would be dis posed of to some other club was mailed him. A number of teams have lines out for tbe youngster. Sweeney, who will cover third base for Washington next season, is not Jerry, formerly of Providence, who has been playing in that position on the Pacific coast, but the Sweeney who was hi the Troy team last season. He is a better batsman than Donnelly, and is said to hold a thrown ball in better style. TnE baseball enthusiasts of Is ew York and Brooklyn may now rejoice, for the two clubs representing these cities are to play a scries of games next spring. President Byrne, of the Brooklyns, arranged terms with John B. Day on v eancsaay, anu xue games wui taKe place in me eany part oi April. The secret of President Davidson's efforts to get the Association clubs to waive their claims on Hecker and Cook turns out to be that he is trying to arrange a deal by which the battery will go to Washington. He will not state what player or players he wants in exchange, but it is probable that he is after Third Baseman Donnelly. Bingham, the Minneapolis pitcher, was a member of the class of 'Sii at Harvard, and after pitching for his class nine during the spring or '86 he signed with the Oshkosh team under an assumed name, and was known as the "California wonder." He was recognized by a fellow student while playing at St. Paul, and was exposed. This prevented his playing in any college team in the future. George Bailey, of Louisville, who was Jim Hart's manager, says that Hart is under a sort of reserve to the Chicago club, and is receiving S75 a month not to engage elsewhere until Spalding returns from his Australian trip. Spalding is much pleased with Hart's ability in managing the Australian affair. Hart is corre sponding with Soden, of the Bostons, relative to managing tbe Hubites, but Chicago has first call on his services. Sporting Notes. Albert, the pedestrian, will not start in the 'Frisco race. The New York and Brooklyn clnbs have ar ranged to play three games before the cham pionship season opens. Oxly Messrs vHnggins and BrehmTcompeted at the Pittsburg rifle shoot yesterday. Tho former won by So to 78. It is stated that a boat race has been ar ranged between Teemer, Gaudanrand Hosmer, to take place in this city next July. Lucky Baldwin has changed bis mind again, and has decided to bring Miss Ford and Volante to the seaboard next summer instead of sending them to his breeding farm. Ike Weir, the Spider, who is undoubtedly the champion featherweight of the world, wants to fight anyhodvof any color, scaling between US and 120 pounds, with skin gloves or bare knuckles, under any rules, or for any amount of money, to a finish. Hub Colliks will be a bridegroom with the others of the Brooklyn club to-morrow. He will be married in the afternoon toMissTillie Williams, of Pewee Valley. She is a young lady of excellent famlly.and after the wedding the couple will go East on a bridal tour. Captain Faatz of tho Clevelands has agreed on terms for next season. He was classed as a C man aud kicked, but was allowed an extra sum as captain of the team. This completes the Cleveland in and outfield, and the only players now to sign are batteries. SAM Trott has been signed to act as uls vine manager of the Newark Baseball Club. The directors held a meeting last night and -perfected plans for next season's work. Trott will act as manager and catcher. He will begin to day to sign men Immediately and get his grounds, eta, in order. Trott first began to play ball with the National club, of Washington, in 1879. and was a member of the famous Little Giant team, of Newark, in ISSfi. From there he went to Baltimore, where he played until the middle of tbe summer of 18S8, when he went to Des Moines. Auction at the II nb. Everything must go at auction prices.

QUE BIGHTS IN SAMOA Germany Attempting to Force Us En tirely Out of That Region. KUMEKOUS ARBITRARY ACTIONS. The Tamasese Government is Merely a Berlin Protectorate. INTERESTING HISTORY MADE PUBLIC. Lengthy Inteniew With a Well-Posted American Sural Commander. Commander Day, of the American navy, who recently returned from Samoa, was in terviewed yesterday. He reveals some hitherto unwritten history in regard to that region. He tells of his trouble with the German representatives. He regards Pago Pago, harbor as of the greatest importance to America. He anticipates serious trouble. Cleveland, January 31. The homo of Commander B. F. Day, of the United States navy, is at Warren, a few miles from Cleve land. The Commander has recently re turned from a cruise in the South Pacific, and has had a hand in the Samoan matter. He submitted to an interview with an As sociated Press correspondent this afternoon, and said: I went there in May, 1SSG, as captain of the Mohican, at a time shortly after Tamasese had set himself up against Malietoa, tle rightful king. Tamasese's government was really a German protectorate, and the commander of that country's war-ship at tho islands so ad mitted to me. A proclamation, in fact, had been signed by tbe consuls, recognizing the usurper, Tamasese. WelL one night, 1 got Malietoa, the deposed king.on board my ship at midnight. There we arranged a night move against Tamasese's force of abont COO men which was encamped on thebeach atleast9 miles distant. This was to take place the night fol lowing. I bad expressly stipulated with Malie toa that there was to be no blood shed unless 1 gave the signal, which was to be a cannon shot on shipboard. My calculation was that tho rebel Tamasese would be overawed by the force and readily capitulate. Malietoa's army of 2,000 men moved down as planned, and at davlurht Tam asese found himself nicely surrounded. We got the Mohican underway and went up to anchor off Tamasese's town to cut off his escape bv water: and ar rived there about 10 o'clock in the forenoon. As soon as the ship was steamed up, the Ger mans had their suspicions aroused by our leav ing the harbor so Informally, and, divining that something was up, forthwith they dispatched a mounted messenger to Tamasese's camp, notify ing him to have nothing to do with me. The messenger arrived before we did, and when we were rowing ashore in the small boats, Tamas ese wouldn't let us land because I had a Samoan interpreter in the boat GERMAN INTERFERENCE. I went ashore to an English trader's store and sent word to Tamasese that I wanted to see him. A messenger returned, shortly, saying that the rebel chief was in the 'bush.' There upon 1 sent him notice that unless he came I would not be responsible for the conseauences. That brought him, and I at once tried to have him sign an agreement giving up his claim to the kingship. Acting under the German ad vice he refused. My Dest judgment wasto have alietoa pitch in, and everlastingly whip Tamasese, as the latter was in rebellion against the then recognized Government. This would have forever ended the difficulty, as Malietoa conld have cut to pieces Tamasese and his followers. Well, there they were, with Malietoa readv to start his battle at my signals. Returning on board ship I found one of his head chiefs anx iously waiting the word to go ahead. Br this omers arrivea, ana me English Consul served me with a formal protest. in tue name ot me veueen. against my precip itating a conflict; while tbe German Consul earnestly entreated me not to start tbe affair. The United States Consul sided with me. We then all went back, allowing tbe hostile parties to retain their situation, and tried to have the Consuls hit upon something. Breaking the narrative for a moment, Mr. Day left the room and returned with a yellowish tinged doenmentpn which was printed in parallel columns one in En glish and the other in Samoan language, the following: U. S. snip or war Moihcan, ) Afia UABBOit, June s, 1SSS. i We, the representatives of Malietoa and his Government, and we, the representatives of Taiiiaseseandhls party, do hereby solemnly swear to the following agreement: First : That from this day forward there shall be perpetual peace la Samoa. becond That the two parties of Malietoa and Tamasese, shall live in friendship and cordial re lations.

I left there In July, 'SG, for the Tonga Islands and returned in the expectation of receiving in structions as to what the Government wished. I received none and went to Auckland, where I got a cable from the Department to return im mediately to Samoa and meet Commissioner Bates, who was sent out by Secretary Bayard. I gave him all the Information and assis tance that I could. Mr. Bates was there six weeks. I was there the whole time during the same period, and finally took him to tbe steamer on which he sailed for San Francisco. The other two Governments had commissioners there at the same time. On report of the com missioners. Secretary Bayard and the German and English Ministersto Washington met in the summer of 1887 at Washington to agree on a Samoan government that would be satisfac tory to the three nations. . The gentleman started to tell what was done at this triangular conference of the American, German and English Ministers, but inasmuch as it is regarded as a secret of State, recalled his words and took up the conversation at another point. Nothing was accomplished, and so Secretary Bayard adjourned the conference till the autumn of the same year. In less than two weeks after the adjournment, tho German squadron was ordered from Sydney to Samoa and war declared by the commander upon the rightful King, Malietoa. To save his people from bloodshed he surrendered and the Ger mans deported him tu Africa. Tho Germans Immediately brought Tamasese up to Apia and installed that rebel pretender as king, and recognized him as such. The same intriguers at once put in as Premier a man named Brandis, who had, up to that time, been a clerk for tho large German company trading at the islands. THE GERMAN PLAN. The g overnment of Tamasese, to-day, is practically a one-man power, with Brandis in full authority, and he controlled in every act by tbe German Consul. Instead of an autonomy, the Samoan Government is a protectorate in full intents and purposes. In fact, the com mander of the German forces told me: "Wo are protecting this government of Tamasese" The new King. Tamases. was never nonnlar outside of his own Province, and his actions and government were so arbitrary that it re sulted in a rebellion.. The discontented Sa moans chose Matiafa who was next in rank to the kidnapped Malietoa, to be their King. Now that the followers of Matiafa have fired on tbe German forces, that country will no doubt send an expedition to Samoa and depose him the same treatment that was bestowed upon Malietoa for his act of temerity, if they don't kill him outright, as 1 expect. We were at Samoa, March, April and May, 1SSS. and at that time Tamasese's Government was in full control. However, it was evident that trouble was soon to follow. In fact, I was approached by some of the Samoan chiefs, at that time, to see if they could hope for anv aid from tbe United States in case of rebelling against Tamasese. I told them I didn't think the American Government would do anything; and whatever was done, they must depend on their own resources. OUE TREATY EIGHTS. By treaty with Samoa we have exclusive right to the hat bor of Pago Pago as a coaling station. That treaty expired last February, but continues until 12 months after notification, given by either the United States or Samoa, of a desire to terminate the same. Great Britain and Germany have similar treaties, giving them rightto a coaling station. But Pago Pago is the only fit place for such a purpose, and, with Tamasese reseated, my belief is that tbe Germans will have him notify the United States to quit the group just as soon as he is again recognized as King by England'and Ger many. Ihere is one great tronblo Matiafa has to contend with, and that is getting munitions of war. Tho German Government supplies Tamasese with old "Henry" and "Schneider" rifles and furnishes ammunition. On the other hand. Matiara has to get arms as best he can, without anv rich government backing him. If our Government intends to assert its rights there, and prevent tbe Germans from getting full control of those islands, the wisest move that could be made would be to send out to Mataifa a supply of arms and ammunition. With these he could hold his own against any force the Germans cap send against him for some time. I have an idea that it is goiqg to be a very serious complication. MOORE WAS MYSTERIOUS. New Facts Developing In Connection With tbe Gigantic Steal. Indianapolis, January 31. The, first direct litigation against Joseph A. Moore, arising out of his embezzlement of 500,000 from the Connecticut Mutual Life Insur ance Company, was begun before Judge Taylor in the Superior Court this afternoon. Secretary Abbott made affidavit in attach ment against Moore for an alleged indebted ness of $13,454. Theodore P. Haughey and the Indianapolis National Bank are gar nishes defendants in the suit, but the bank officials sav Moore has no balance there, and that the procedings, so far as they are concerned, are only formal. The affidavit alleges that Moore has concealed himself to avoid service. The case is set for hearing .February 13. Strange as it may seem, there are people in this city who assert that Moore is still in town, aud'has been seen within the past 24 hours by persons who know him. Moore's attorney, Charles E. Barrett, however, de clares that Moore is certainly in Canada. A brother of Moore, Thomas C. Moore, a rail road official of Chicago, has been in the city several days stopping with his sister. Very few of the better posted people here think that Moore's flight was because of fear of arrest at the instance of the company. A prominent business man says: I know it to be true that several days before the company sent its man out here to investi gate the books, it notified Moore of Its inten tion. He had ample time to leave the country before their arrival. Then when they had been here two weeks, and it was explained, he was still here, going about the streets until the very day that official statement of his defalca tion was published. Moore's flight is attributed to his fear of arrest at the instance of policy holders in the company residing here. THE BEEF BILL KILLED. Food Meat Will Not bo Inspected on the rioofln Ohio. Columbus, January 31. What is known as the Geyser meat inspection bill was de feated in the Senate to-day, and will not likely be heard from again this session. This bill provided for an inspection on foot of all beef sold in the State, the inspection to be had within the limits of the State. The bill gained con siderable celebrity last winter on account of the charges made against certain members ot the benate to the ettect that they had solicited a bribe 'from Chicago parties in connection with the defeat of the bill. After an investigation, however, the members were exonerated from all blame. The speeches on the bill to-day were short and pointed. Senator Mehafiey opposed the measure and Messrs. Taylor and Towns urged its passage. It was sought to buoy the bill through by an amendment placing canned meats in the list, subject to inspec tion, but the plan was unsuccessful. The bill was placed upon its passage and lost by the following vote: Yeas Messrs. Alexander, Carlin, Ford, Geyser, Glover, Taylor, Towusend, Wallace and Zimmerman 9. Nays Messrs. Adams, Barrett, Braddock, Brown, Cowill, Crook, Davis, Door, Kerr, Mack, Massie, Mehaffey, Mortley, Robertson, Sin netee, Snyder, Steue and Stull 19. PEACEFUL AS A DEAD CLAM. A Session of Sir. Mills' Committee at Which Nothing Was Done. Washington, January 31. The "Ways and Means Committee met to-day for the pnrpose of beginning the consideration of the Senate tariff bill, but adjourned until Saturday without any progress whatever being made as the result of the session. The Treasury experts have not yet submitted their estimates of the probable effect on the revenues of the amendments made to the tariff bill in the Senate, and it is not likely that much will be accomplished until these computations are sent in. No agreement or rule has been adopted as yet as to the manner in which the bill shall be considered. Chairman Mills was unable to be present at the committee meeting, and as the other Democratic members were un willing to bring the tariff question up in his absence, the committee adjourned after a session that was, to use Mr. Beed's ex pression, "as peaceable as a dead clam." A LANDMARK SINGED. The Shady-side Presbyterian Church Gntted . byvFiro nt Midnight. Soon after midnight the Shadyside Pres byterian Church caught fire. An alarm was sent in, but when the fire department arrived the flames had rapidly spread and the intreior of the edifice was completely burned out. This is the church which was condemned last year.and there has not been any service held in it for a long time. The church was built SO years ago by Mr. Wyndham, the Philadelphia architect who built the Ma sonic Temple in that city. The fire was discovered in that part of the church where a handsome 52,500 organ was located. The instrument was totally de stroyed; and the entire damage done by the fire amounts to about 54,000.

An old man, greatly resembling Eip Van Winkle as he appeared after his 20 years' sleep, was arrested in Allegheny yesterday. He gave his name as Alexander Stauford and said he was 78 years of age. The pris oner was covered with mud when taken into custody and refused to talk. The only in formation he gave was that he had tramped from Cincinnati and was on his way to Har risburg. An Allegheny Suggestion Sleeting. The Democrats of the Eighth' ward, Alle gheny, met in the school house last night and nominated the following ticket for the city election: Select Council, Theo.

BOULANGER'S MARCH To the Dictatorship of France Stopped by tile Deputies, is WHO SUSTAIN THE GOVERNMENT. Floquet Offers h Resign, but the Chamber Won't Have 'it. O'BRIEN CRUELLY TREATED IN JAIL. A French Story That Crown Prince Endolf, of Aus tria, Was Assassinated. The French Ministry has squarely met the issue of Boulangerism, and has been sustained. Premier Floquet asked for and obtained a vote of confidence. The cruel treatment of O'Brien by his jailers is exciting great indignation among National ists. A,story comes from Paris to the effect that PrirBe Rudoll was assassinated. A rumor was current in Berlin'that the King of Holland had died. Paeis, January 31. Iu the Chamber of Deputies to-day M. Jonvencel interpellated the Government regarding the measures it intended to, take to arrest the progress of Boulangerism. The speaker attributed the change in pnblic opinion chiefly to the in sults that have been daily heaped upon the Government, and to the indifference of the Ministers toward their revilers. The lib erty of the press and liberty of speech had been allowed to degenerate into license. The Government ought to de'fend itself from the attacks of slanderers. Premier Eloquent, before replying to M. Jouvencel, asked-? leave to introduce a bill re-establishing tho scrutin d'arrondissmeut system of election Deputy D'Ornano, a Bonapartist, here ex claimed: '"The only possible issue is the dissolution nt the Chamber." M. Caseaux, a member of the Bight, asked leave to speak on a matter of urgency. The President refused permission. Fresh pro tests from members of the Bight led to a scene of great confusion. The President finally called the members to order and de cided that the House must hear M. Floquet. UNIVERSAL SUFFRAGE A BAD THING. M. Floquet held that the establishment oi the scrutin d arrondissement system would in no way assail universal suffrage. If his policy obtained the approval of the Re publican party he would pursue it with greater authority, but if it was not approved he would resign. The Government, ne said, did not think that measures ought to be taken against 'the liberty of the press, but they were bound to legislate against those who were seeking to overturn the Republic. The existing laws dealing with hostile combinations were inadequate, while the increase of mediums oi communi cation and the growth of wealth furnished persons having criminal designs with means of action which could not be foreseen by the iramers of the penal code. The Govern ment would, therefore, propose fresh meas ures for the repression of attempts against the security of the State. A great change had occurred in electoral proceedings. Uni versal suffrage bad become the tool of all sorts of commercial combinations by syndi cates operating through paid bands of agi tators. The Government would also intro duce a bill for the modification of the press laws regarding placards aud colportage. OFFERED HIS RESIGNATION. After a general explanation of the Gov ernment's poliev, M. Floquet concluded his speech by saying that if a majority of the members of the Chamber of Deputies were discontented or thought a nearer approach ought to be made to the policy of the Bight or the Left, the Chamber must seek other Ministers. In the meantime he asked the house ior a vote ot confidence. M. Paul DeCassagnac followed the Premier. He reproached M. Floquet with attacking universal suffrage and said it was now the Bight upon whom fell the duty of defending suffrage against the Government. Universal suffrage commands, it must be obeyed. "Dissolution" had practically been made the test word. The situation for the Ministers could be summed up in the phrase "Get out." After accusing M. Floquet of striking at liberty through the proposed laws against attempts on the security of the State,? M. DeCassagnac concluded by in timating that he would vote for the present ministry since its continuance in office would be the best means that conld be sought to overthrow the Bepublic. M. Hobard demanded that the Govern ment proceed against Boulanger with acts, not words. THE GOVERNMENT SUSTAINED. M. Floquet replied that it was necessary to combat the idea of dictatorship. They must fight it resolutely in a legal way, using fresh weapons if necessary. M. Demont-Jau declared that it was time to put an end to Boulangerism. Boulanger ought to be watched and stopped on his march. Cheers from the Left. M. Lagurre (Boulangist) reminded the House that the Boulangist propaganda was supported by thousands of citizens. Those citizens, he said, desired an honest Bepub lic. They desired a Republic open to all Frenchmen, in contradistinction to a Be public governed by a parliamentary clique. It was an infamous slander to say that Boulangerism was supported by funds re ceived from abroad. M. Montaut then presented this motion: "That the House, confident in the firmness of the Government, passes to the order of the day." The motion was accepted by the Govern ment and adopted by a vote of 300 to 210. General Boulanger did not appear in tbe Chamber during the debate. WON'T WEAE CONVICTS' GAEB.

The Knights of Labor convention, which has been in ses sion in this city the past three days, ad journed to-day after having indorsed a num ber of bills intended to benefit the working men, and appointed a Legislative Committee whose duty it will be to watch all measures supposed to affect the laboring people favor ably or unfavorably, and to exert their in fluence in favor of legislation believed to be conducive to the interests of labor.

McGarvey is Chairman of this com mittee, and Lewis Secretary. Besolutions were adopted reiterating the allegiance of the Knights of Labor to Mr. Powderly and deprecating the formation of organizations claimed to be in the interest of the order, but really hostile to it. The con vention declined to take auy action on the bill to prohibit the importation of dressed meats, although many of the members were strongly opposed to it. During the progress of the convention many members of the Legislature who are members of the order witnessed is proceedings. The legislative committee appointed to-day will open head quarters iu this city immediately. SATE 10 DE PENNIES. Senator Delnranter Introduces nBill to Pro mote Thrift Among tbe Poor.

KNOCKED OUT. Street Railroad Bills Negatively Reported by the IiegUIativB Committee. FROM A STAFF COKKESPONDENT.l Harrisburg, January 3L The City Passenger Railway Committee heard Mr. Marland to-day on his traction railway bill. Mr. Marland made an able argument, but the committee, which had been considering the matter, was practically unanimous against it. The arguments that have been made against the bill have been thoroughly aired, but a new one was developed by Mr. Hoskins, of Philadelphia, who urged that the prohibition of work over or under the tracks of arttraqtfon,. company without its consent" would, .prpvent the construction of an elevated railway! This is a question of more importance to Philadelphia than to Pittsburg. The bill was negatived, as was the city Dassenger railway bill presented by Mr. Lafferty, which contained the prohibition of the construction of a new street railway which proposed to parallel an existing line within 1,000 feet. A NEW COUNT! To be Created Ont of Portions ,of Lnzerne and Schnylklll. CFBOM A STAFF COBRESPONDENT.l Harrisburg, January 31. The Com mittee on Counties and Townships listened to arguments to-day for and against the formation of a new county out of parts of Luzerne and Schuylkill. The bill is general in its terms, but is framed so as to have a special application. It had been favorably reported, but was recommitted for the pur pose of giviugpersous interested opportunity to be heard. The objections came wholly from Schuyl kill county, which objects to losing five or six of its richest undeveloped coal town ships. People within the bounds of the proposed new county seem to favor it, and sent representatives and petitions saying so. The county seat of the new county is to be Hazleton. The committee resolved to send the bill back to the House with a favorable recommendation. FALSE PEETENSES Killed tbe Granger's BUI Directed Against Chicago Dressed Beef. FEOM A STAFF CORRESPONDENT.! Harrisburg, January 31. The Ju diciary General Committee negatived Mc Donald's mechanics' lien bill and took the same action concerning the grangers' meat bill, after listening to a series ot unsavory speeches concerning the dressed meat trade, which has its center in Chicago. Arguments were also presented showing how the passage of the bill would benefit the Pennsylvania farmers. Indeed this was made the most prominent feature of the ar guments in favor of the bill, and the fact that the language of the bill professed to give protection to the popular health in stead led to the negative report. The law yers of the committee didn't like the ap- faueCetense A New Capital Suggested. TFROM A STAFF CORRESPONDENT. Harrisburg, January 31.

BULLETS FLYING THICK AND FAST Ona Man is Shot and Carried Off in a Hos pital Ambulance. A BLOW THAT WAS HEAED FOE A BLOCK. Stones Weishln? Half a Ton Used to Blockade an Obnoxlus Track. The New York street car strike is assum ing a more serious phase. Clubs, revolvers and stones are being freely used. The police authorities are becoming alarmed at the situation. The strikers threated' to de stroy company property by fire. Women are joining in the battle. New York, January 31. About 2 o'clock this afternoon fully 3,000 strikers assembled at the Belt Line stables and before the po lice could, reach the scene of trouble on Tenth avenue the work of blocking the belt road was completed. It was begun with a load of sand, which was followed by a couple more placed on the down track. These were then flanked with heavy stones weighing between 500 and 1,000 pounds. They were brought in wagons by sympathizers of the strikers, and damped across the rails. A dozen ot these were placed on both tracks. The situation was becoming strained when Captain Killedea and Inspector Steers ap peared on the scene. The Inspector gave orders to clear the streets and the Captain started to inforce it. He has the reputation of being the clubbing Captain, and his ac tions this afternoon shows that he deserves it. Ten minutes after he started in there was not a whole striker within a radius of half a mile. They had vanished. He gave orders to use clubs, and they were used. The Captain himself set the example. The strike a little later assumed an alarming as pect. FIRST BLOOD. The first blood was spilled with bullets. Strikers and police fired upon each other. One striker was wounded. Late in the afternoon a mob of striking Broadway men dumped a large trucK on tne trades in Seventh avenue. Officer Patrick Lynch was the only one on duty there at the time. He chased the mob through Forty-ninth to Eighth avenue, where he caught James Nesdale, a Broadway driver. While taking him to the Broadway stables the crowd rushed at the officer, knocked him down, and one of them made a vicious kick at the policeman's head, but the latter dodged. Lynch fired his revolver in the air, bring ing Officer Thomson, who raised him to his feet. The prisoner was again seized and the crowd again rushed forward, and both offi cers fired revolvers in the air. A num ber of strikers drew revolvers. Bul lets whistled past the officers' heads. One ot the shots struck the prisoner in the knee. The firing attracted a squad of po lice. They swept the avenue and drove the crowd before them. The two officers were considerably battered. The wounded man was sent to the hosrjital. His wound is serious. Another driver was also arrested in the row. REVOLVERS NUMEROUS. Officer Manning arrested an ash-cart driver for dumping his load at the corner of Forty-seventh street and Tenth avenue. A mob followed him all the way to the station bouse, burling at bim anv movable object they could lift readily. The officer's head and back were injured. He flourished his revolver at the crowd and reached the station. John Ker wick, a driver, drew a knife on one of the officers and he was felled to the sidewalk by a blow on the head. He had to be taken to Boosevelt Hospital. Kate Moore, a giantess in size, threw glass at the police, and fought like a tigress when arrested. Just at dusk over 3,000 persons were thronging the streets and sidewalks near the Broadway stables. Monnted police and officers afoot charged upon the crowd, which retreated, but did so sullenly. Two hundred strikers stood at the point of the plaza at Forty-seventh street, Seventh avenue and Broadway. A stal wart policeman astride a powerful bay horse rode up and ordered them to give way. No man stirred, but, quick as a flash, a round cobble stone weighing doubtless five pounds shot from the rear of and over the heads of the crowd of men straight at the nervous horse beneath the officer. But scarce had the stone fallen upon the officer when the spurs gored the big bay horse.which plunged lorwaru tun at tbe breast ot tbe sullen mob. HEARD A BLOCK. There was a scattering, but one huge fel low braced himself for the onset with a club in band, and as omcer and horse were upon him he seized the bridle rein at the bit and the horse reared back. His rider, how ever, leaned forward simultaneously, and standing upright in the stirrups, his club lifted and descended with terrible force upon the head of the stubborn striker. The blow could be heard a block distant. The latter began at the knees to fall, his head drooped and in an instant ho fell in a heap by the hoofs of the officer's horse. An ambulance carried him off subsequently. The crowd took itself offat once. No car was run on the Belt line. The Police Com missioners are becoming anxious about the situation, and have resolved to hold hourly conferences with Superintendent Slurray while the strike lasts. Superintendent White, of the Dry Dock line, informed the. police to-night that from information in his' possession, he believed the strikers intended to fire the company's stables during the night. The police force guarding the stables was increased. F0ECED TO COMMIT PEEJ0EY. O'Connor Says lie Was Compelled to Testify Falsely Before the Parnell Commission. Dublin, January 31.

The Alta editori-j , ally says: Tho administration has been too slow, and even now it cries out in a variety of voices, and fails to define its wish as to a Samoan policy. Perhaps it will be unshed by public opinion into more definite action. This coast aeslres the protection ot its commercial into rests in the South Pacific, ancTthis may bo effected by occupitlon of Pago Pago. Our trade with. Samoa is a small matter and figures but little in the affair. If it alone were at stake wa should afford to take an apology, and let Ger many take Samoa, for. with our occupation of i"ago Pago assured, wo can abundantly protect . pur great and growing commerce with Austra lia and New Zealand. The Clironicle says: when Bismarck wrote this letter ho must hava known that it contained more than one falsehood. He knew that all Americfti Con suls had ever done was to defend the rights of Americans and to protest against the unau- !?r&Ld?lairSTes3"reacts of Germans, and yet the Chancellor coolly shifts all the blame on American shoulders, and depicts Germany as an injured innocent. The Examiner savs: Bismarck's latest com munication to our Government is the culmin ation of his long series of audacities. It is hardly possible that Secretary Bayard can re gard this pronunciamento as serenelv as he did former ones from the same source, "bat if ne can ho will not bo permitted. The President wisely transmitted Bismarck's impudent mes sage to Congress, and that body will doubtless speak its mind npon it in unmistakable terms. Our duty is simple; it is to place ourselves be tween Samoans andtheirenemies and announce that the first shot fired will have to be fired at us. In the event of such decisive action on the Sart ofrour Government Bismarck's agents will esltate a long time before they touch off that shot. Tbe Post says: It is clear that promptness and vigor are needed from this Government or there will be nothing left to save. The Germ ans will have the islands and the United State will have a broken treaty. GEEMANT IS YEET PEIENDLT, Bat Is Preparing to SendSIIIItary Reinforce , meats to Samoa. Berlix, January 31.

It isnot expected that German military operations in Samoa will commence until sufficient reinforcements are sent to the islands. At present there are at Samoa three German war ships, with an available landing force of 300 men. Getting Down to Business. At the close of the concert at the Sixth TJ. P.
