THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1889.
t WORLD OF SPORTS An Authority Talks About Selling BaseballPools. .v ITS GOOD AND BAD EFFECTS Local Opinions About the McAuliffe and Myers Battle, INTERESTING BASEBALL GOSSIP. How the "Western Lightweight Was e ceired at His Home. GENERAL SPOETIKG KEWS OF THE DAT Sam Hyams, the popular poolseller on baseball games, has contracted to leave this city and go to Denver, Col. He will become a member of the firm to be established by John Loomis in that Colorado city, and the fact is Sam is very loth to go out of Pitts burg. There is another fact, and that is many of the many thousands of local baseball enthusiasts regret his departure, Hyam's leaving this city prompts many in teresting thoughts. He is one of the best In formed sellers on baseball games that probably has been in Pittsburg; but this is not the great feature of his departure. His leaving means that the exciting times that there used to be on "score or no score" will no more be in Pittsburg. Inquiries of the strictest kind have proven that for a few years at least no pools, no matter what tbej relate to, will be allowed in this city. For some time past the hope has been ex pressed that that poolselling business in a baseball-selling way would be tolerated; bnt all hopes have been blighted, and the crowds of cranks who thronged the poolrooms last season must now be satisfied that they must make their wagers in private. WILL THE BETTING DECLINE. The Question among the local enthusiasts is will the absence of a public poolroom prevent the betting on the games that used to be last season? On this question many opinions were collected by the writer yesterday afternoon During the canvass it was instructive to learn the diversity of notions as to whether or not betting on baseball would decrease at all. Rep resenting the pool sellers, perhaps Ed Lowry spoke more logically than anybody else. He e&id: "Of course I am of opinion that pool selling of any kind will not be allowed for a long time to come in Pittsburg, but I question whether or not bettinc in its vicious character will be stopped. Now, on this point I want to make myself very clear, because the time will assuredly come when the public will discern the difference between betting publicly and betting in private grottos, or what I term irresponsibly. The pool rooms have been stopped, but the betting spirit has not been extinguished. This means that bets v, ill be made in a way that any amount of encouragement will be given to '"Welsbers," that is. people v. ho hold stakes and disappear null them. Take baseball for instance, there are hundreds of people who will, under any circumstances, bet on results. No law will stop these people from betting one with an other. You may lock them in a church and they .will have the schedule of games, and, de pend upon it, they vi ill discover means to make a bet about every club for any day. In their efforts to make bets clandestinely, it is likely that THET -WOULD COEBtTTT PEOPLE in the church, that is if an honest wager can corrupt anybody. I mention this to show that the spirit of betting, or wagering, particularly on nascbsll, cannot be killed except we con. vince the people that they must not bet. It follows then that as long as the desire to bet exists betting ought to be regulated, just as the vending of many articles, v. ben used to excess are injurious, are regulated. Betting without regulation, or under absolute laws of prohibi tion, develops into the most vicious forms of robbery and swindling: simplv because the en tire business is considered illegal. The sense ot illegality prevents honest men from being responsible sponsers in the business, and the spirit to bet on a populargame is so strong that the people who are so enthusiastic because of an honest love for the game it ill risk a bet un der any circumstances. "These ideas have been gathered by me dur ing a busy career in many places both East and West. Of couse I couldn't sell pools in Pittsburg next season if the law allowed it, but 1 do say that the honesty of baseball cannot be made better by the prevention of public bet ting or speculative transactions. Why, I am prepared to bet that a bet on an every-day baseball game between two professional clubs is more honest than any lottery in which we participate in a church. The very men who assume to stop a public wager on a baseball game are those generally who risk all the little money they have and all that their friends own on the turn of the political wheel. Tell me which is the most honest? Two honest baseball nines in the field, or two blooded and majestic horses strugcling for supremacy, or two representa tives of two political parties running for office Why in the two former we get what is fair, no matter what we lose: but in the last named thousands of dollars are lost, and I need tell nobody as to bow the money was lost. I am a poolseller, and I state that as long as the public want to bet there will be betting, and the stronger that the law to prohibit is, the greater will be the swindling." A young gentleman identified with a bank in this city, and a baseball crank, said: "I never jet found in Pittsburg any intention to swindle liy poolroom proprietors except once. These people excepted tried once one afternoon and tailed, because the game was too square. They skipped out at an hour's notice. How ever, I confess that I have bet hundreds of dollars in the poolrooms that I would not nave bet if no poolrooms had been there. They are a temptation." "Would you, in the absence of poolroom, bet a friend a S10U bill on the street if you thought you could name the winner of a ball game?" was asked. "Most certainly I would, poolrooms or no poolrooms. I will still bet if I think I can win." It's All Bosh. President Soden was in an unusually jolly frame of mind when I met him this afternoon. He bubbled over with merriment when I al luded to this morning's dispatch from Philadel phia stating that the League had served notice upon him that Johnny Ward must not be tam pered with. "Bosh!" he exclaimed; "the League has no more to do with Ward than you have." "I see that Hewitt is going to Europe to meet Ward," I said. "Won'tyou or Billings go. too?" "Oh, no, I don't believe Hewitt will go, and I am sure no one of ns will. We do not need to pull any wires. Ours are pulled; were pulled lone ago." "Then there's no news to-day?" "No. nothing." Walter Burnham. the father of the new At lantic League, happened along just then. He is very sanguine over the prospects of the or ganization, and says that it will undoubtedly consiot of Worcester, Lowell. Hartford, New Haven. Newark. Jersey Citv, Wilkesbarre and Scranton, though Eastou is trying to get the last place. Mr. Burnham finds popular interest at high pitch in the cities named. Aeio iTork Herald. A Sensational Sale. Lnntoios, Kr, February 14. A sensa tional private sale was consummated here this afternoon, when Mr. John E. Madden, of this city, closed a contract with Jlr. W. H- Bead ing, of Havana, Cuba, for the 4-year-old trot ting filly Bosque Bonlta, by Macey's Hamble touian, at 10.000. The filly was one of the wonders of the Ken turkv trotting turf last year.

Representatives of young Shea, the Wheel ing bantam pugilist, were in the city last night trying to arrange a match for a battle between Shea and Joe Ridge. The latter or his friends , could not be seen. Tommy Hogan's backers, bow ever, were on hand and offered to match H'ican to ficht Shea at 112 pounds, with or without gloves, under any rules, for $500 a tide. If a match cannot be made between Ridge and bhea it is likely that Hogan and Shea wilfmeet. Polo Grounds Doomed. rSPFCUI. TXXECBAX TO TUB BtSP A.TCII.1 New Yoke.

Steeatob, III., February 14. The Myer contingent arrived home from the battlefield about 5 o'clock this evening. They were met at the depot by an immense crowd of citizens of all grades and professions. Myer jumped Into a hack and was daveu to Kennedy's place, fol lowed by tho crowd, which pressed In and around the building. Everybody was anxious to catch a glance of the champion, for so they recant him. Billy shook hands with as many as possible, and soon went to his father's home, where he spent the evening. Ho shows but lit tle marks of punishment, and expressed him self as feeling well, except a little soreness. Lees sassbewas as fresh at the endot the fljht as at the beginning, which is corroborated by otherswho s&v that be chatted and joked all the way home on the train, showing no signs of exhaustion whatever. There is a deep and bitter discontent among Mver's friends about the decision of the referee in declaring the fight a draw. The opinion is unanimous that it was entirely unwarranted and unjust, and that Myer would assuredly have won the fight had the contest been per mitted to go on. Myer.it IS said, intended to fight a defensive fight, because of the immense amount of money staked on him by poor people, who could not afford to lose it. He did not feel that he ought, to venture in aggressive tactics, and take the risk of a knock-out blow, while these interests depended upon him. He was prepared to fight a hundred rounds if need dc. ana regulated nimseii accordingly, juyer said to a friend on the way borne that he in tended to challenge McAuliffe to a finish fight through the Sporting Club, of Jban Francisco. Lees expressed the opinion that McAuliffe would not meet Myer again under any circum stances, though there might be a lot of bluster. The clamor here is all for another meeting. THEY CANNOT AGREE. Glasscock and President Brnth Fail to Come to Terms. Indianapolis, February 14. The fact is verified that Jack Glasscock and President Brush, of the ball club, cannot agree "on terms as manager. Glasscock was offered 2,500 as a player and $1,000 extra to serve as captain and manager. He wanted $3,500, but insisted that it should be $3,000 as a player and 500 for man aging. This would place him in excess of the $2,500 limit fixed by the League classification, he being a Class A man, and to this Brush would not consent. Glasscock is afraid he will not be a success as a manager, and bence his t scheme to strengthen bis salary as as a player. He writes to friends here that the only two League clubs observing the classification and salary limit are Indianapolis and Washington. There continues to be talk that Frank Ban croft will be selected as manager, but only as a probability. President Brush reports that the playing nine will open tho season the same as last year, and there does net seem much dispo sition to make any changes save to add Pitcher Getzein, if he can be had. A Remarkable Rabbit. There is a large white male Angora rabbit that hops about the Rambo House stable yard that excites considerable attention from the fact that. Instead of seeking safety upon the ap pearance of any strange dog in the yard, it at once becomes pugnacious and attacks the in truding canine. The rabbit was as timid as any other representative of its species when it was placed in the 'yard several months ago to keep company with a large handsome St, Ber nard dog that is familiarly known by the name of Topsy. A friendship sprang up at once be tween the two, and their daily romps together surprise everyone visiting the hotel. The other day a well-known physician en tered the yard accompanied by a very large dog. He saw the rabbit and dog at play, and was greatly surprised and amused to seethe rabbit catch the dog by the throat and shake it vigorously. He expressed doubts that the rab bit would attack his doc in the same manner. and, upon being assured it would, urged his dog on. The dog made a spring at the rabbit, which was on the alert, and secured its favorite grin upon the dog's throat, where it duns, midst the howls of the dog, until compelled to let go its hold. Norrittown Times, Abont the Bl Battle. The opinions of the local sports yesterday re garding the Myers-McAuliffe fight were varied The general opinion was that the affair had been honorably carried out. Mike McDonald being referee seemed to convince everybody that matters baa been fair. The abilities of the fighters were criticised, however, and few people would believe that a battle could last more than four hours it both men wanted to win. There were many, however, who spoke bichlv of the tactics and general pugilistic abilities of Myers. New Orleans Races. New Orleans, February 14. It rained all the afternoon, and the track was heavy.

The fact that poolsellers have over and over again been discharged by the police courts when arrested by the police, on the claim that they acted onlv as common carriers in receiv ing money to be wagered at the race counsel. out of the city, has annoyed District Attorney Fellows. Yesterday he wrote to the Police Board: "The purpose then of the poolsellers in resorting to the fiction of acting as agents for the would-be bettor, to place' his money at the race course, is to evade the law by a trick, and the kind of evidence the police should ob tain in making these arrests is evidence that will satisfy reasonable men that the form of the transaction is a mere trick to evadn the law."

THE C0EPSE TOO LARUE FOE A HEAESE, And the Everyday Clothes of Deceased loo Email to Close Around Him. Colonel Goshen, the late giant of circus and museum fame, was buried yesterday. Considerable curiosity was aroused among his neighbors, and nearly all of them at tended the funeral. The undertaker had a number of difficulties to overcome. No mishap occurred, although one at least was hopefully anticipated by the spectators. Colonel Goshen weighed 588 pounds and his coffin measured eight feet by three, being too large for any hearse. rsrXCIAI. TKLXOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.l New York, February 14. The funeral of Colonel Buth Goshen, Barnnm's biggest giant, who died last Tuesday on his farm, took place this morning. There was talk of a big display, but the Rev. James LeFevre, into whose church Colonel Goshen had been received since his illness declared that he wouldn't officiate unless the preparations were of a simple nature. Besides, Colonel Goshen himself had wished the ceremony to -be quiet. His only other wish was to be buried 'deep. So it was arranged to hold a quiet service in the farm house. Undertaker A. V. Van Doren. of Middle- bush, and a dozen neighbors came early to the house. Colonel ,Uoshen weizhea oba pounds, as attested by a merchant who had weighed him recently, and it was found no easy task to clothe the body. After half an hour's .unavailing efforts the undertaker finally succeeded in bringing tho clothing together in front ot him by splitting it down the back. The dress selected was one tarn iliar to museum goers a long blue coat, with imitation astrachan collar and cuffs, black satin waistcoat with brass buttons, and black broadcloth trousers with red striped seams. THE CEOJVD IS ON TIME. By the time the clothing had been ar ranged a crowd had gathered ami an under taker from New Brunswick had come to 'offer advice. The cloth-covered chestnut coffin, made by a Bowery firm, was placed outside, on the brick wall leading to the gate. Its top measurement was 3x8 feet, and it wouldn't go through the door. The body lay indoors, on a stage ot planks nine feet long. Four men, after much labor, raised the body a little and slipped a broad carpet sling under the waist, fitted at the ends with stout poles. The arms were tied down and the lees were firmly strapped to gether with a horse's girth in such a way as to offer handles to two men, one on each side. The nine-foot stage, with the body on it, was then carried outside and placed on the porch, at right angles with the coffin. Here an interesting discussion arose. The New Brunswick undertaker wanted to place the stage over the coffin, lift up the body, withdraw the planking, and let the body down into the coffin. Mr. Van Doren had arranged for eight men to carry the body by the straps and iron rods to the coffin and lower it. Each presented his argument, and the pallbearers and guests who had arrived gathered round and took part id the dis cussion. NO MISHAP OCCURS. Mr. Van Doren finally had his way, and the body was carried to the coffin and laid in it without mishap. The Colonel's chestnut wig was then carefully adjusted over his kinky hair. An attempt to remove the sling from under him failed, so the rods were cut off and the carpet was left in the coffin. Then the coffin was hoisted upon boxes and left exposed until after the services. The people who attended the funeral seemed to have been prompted by curiosity. There were no tears, and there was some subdued merriment at the predicaments that Undertaker Van Doren found himself in. at every turn. The Rev. James LeFevre read the burial service in the house, while au iuic uunu jucu vu tue iciuiuua uuiaiuc Colonel Goshen had told him, the minister said, that in early life he had been a ship carpenter, and that he had wished many a time he had never abandoned it for the show business. Mr. LeFevre added that Colonel Goshen was born a Hebrew and died a Christian. Colonel Goshen had told him he was born in the Isle of Man, and that almost all the members of his family were in New Zealand. The only relative who attended the funeral was Colonel Goshen's adopted daughter. THE HEAESE TOO SMALL. The great coffin was put in the undertak er's wagon, as the hearse was too small. It was pushed up to the front, and the driver sat at one end of it The other end extend ed about a foot out of the back ot the wagon. It was a bitterly cold morning, but a good many people went in carriages and on foot to Cedar Grove Cemetery, and watched with expectant interest the lower ing ot the coffin into the biggest grave any of them had ever seen, but no accident hap- pened Colonel Goshen made a will in favor of his stepdaughter, Mrs. Henry Sylvester. William H. Wyckoff tended "him during his sickness, and Mr. Wyckoff said that Colonel Goshen gave him a deed for part of his property, forgave him a debt of $500 and presented him with jewelry. Neigh bors spent this afternoon searching the Colo nel's papers to find proof of the statements. It is said that Mrs. Sylvester may try to re cover any property Colonel Goshen may hove given to Mr. Wyckoff. Tber Elect Officers. The Southside Driving Park Association at a special meeting last night assessed the members $10 each to meet current expenses, and then elected the following officers: President, Dr. M. A.

"Had certain conditions been eliminated from the campaign," ho says, "we wonld have won a decisive victory." So far as he is individually concerned, he has no regrets at laying down his trust. He thinks the defeat of the Democracy is to be deplored because of tbo injury resulting to the public interests, but personally he ex periences a profound sense of relief at the prospect of speedv release from the ordeal to which he has been exposed during the past four years. The strain has been so great that no man of less robust health and rugged vitality could have withstood it. One ot the most trying lea tares of his position has been that in the dis charge of hit official duties be has been called upon so frequently to offend persons whoso friendship and good opinion he valued. Mr. Cleveland's sympathies are warm and easily roused. The insensibility with which he has so often been accused is a supposed trait of character which has no existence. He has often hesitated between personal in clinations and his sense of what was exacted ol him by the dignity ef his position, the interests of the public and his oath of office. He has had to fleht for the right at almost every step of his official progress, and he is naturally tired of the continuous wear and tear of the contest. It is an open secret that he accepted the Democratic nomination last summer with gen nine reluctance and after earnest efforts to es cape it. His snDDOsed political aspirations for the futuro do not exist. There is no rivalry on his part between himself and anybody else. "I am in no one's way," he says. "I shall be de lighted to be relieved of tho cares of the Presi dency. On the 4th of March next, on nnrelr personal grounds, there will bo no happier man in the United States." CIVII. SERVICE REFOESI. With reference to the civil service system ho is as firm and decided as in his views on the tariff question. (He believes that civil service reform has come to stay. Ho has treated it solely as a practical question, and has been much hampered and embarrassed by the vaga ries of sentimental reformers and theoristswho havo been continually urging him to so do this or that for mere sensational effect which he did not regard as iudicions. He endeavored to give the civil service scheme a fair triaLand ex presses himself as fully satisfied with the re sults. There may be differences of opinion as to de tails, but he thinks the examinations are, on the whole, about the best test of merit that can be devised. It is certainly far preferable to the spoils system, and be has no fear that it will degenerate into a mere bureaucracy. The worst type of bureaucracy was developed under uiu spoils HyBLeiu ui furiucr iiuuiiiusiiaiiuus. AVhan Mr. Cleveland dime into office he found the department filled with incompetents who had found a permanent lodgment therethrough favoritism. His doubt is whether sufficient clearing has been done to subserve the best Interests of the Government and to give a wider scope for civil service reform, through its methods in filling tbo places of inefficient men. The President recognizes fully the feeling of the' great mas3 of Democratic officeseekers, who expected place and recognition, and the disappointment and irritation which resulted from his inability to satisfy them. SORRY, BUT CAN'T HELP IT. It is a matter of deep regret to him that he couiu not ao so, nut no uaa a nigncr puouc duty to perform, the purification and elevation of the public service, and tho elimination from party policies as far as possible of the degrad ing use of "patronage," an evil which has grown to gigantic proportions, and was steadily increasing. He is very.earnest in advocacy of the civil service systenTas being a thoroughly practical reform, and in no sense undemo cratic. He thinks the work of his administration has fixed this reform as a permanent feature of government and that no party can afford to an tagonize it openlv. So far as his own status In tho party as affected by his attitude in the civil service Question is concerned, it tnav be said that he regards himself as a better Democrat tban many of his critics. The President is especially gratified at the effect of bis administration on the prosperity and happiness of the Southern people, both black and white. He believes in making no distinctions between any of -the sections, aud he deprecates strongly the revival of animosi ties which were supposed to be dead and buried. He is satisfied that the race problem can be worked out by the people of that sec tion without outside interference. A UNITED CABINET. He speaks in terms of grateful appreciation of the hearty and united support accorded him by the members of his Cabinet. The adminis tration, it must be conceded, will go down in history as unique, in the fact that all its mem bers have pulled together from beginning to end, and no personal jealousy or resentments have marred the harmony of its deliberations. Every member of It has been . hard working, energetic and wholly devoted to the public in terests, and every department presents an enviable record of important reforms and economies accomplished, and of substantial re sults in the effort to promote the public good. No breath of scandal or taint of corruption has attached to any branch of the public ser vice. In view of the jobbery andscheming that permeated every department of the pub lic service under former regimes, and which seemed to have become a permanent feature of official life in Washington, no more honor able epitaph could be applied to the admin istration now drawing to a close than the em phatic declaration of the President to the writer, "We have nothing to. hide." THE SMITH-GREEN MURDER TRIAL Will bo Finished To-Dny, and Will bo the Shortest on Record. rSPr-CTAT. TELIGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.l Greensbubo, February 14. The testi mony in the Smith-Green murder trial closed to-night at 9 o'clock. The murder trial has been one of the shortest ever held in this county. It created a good deal of interest among the inhabitants of Jeannette, the town in which the murder was commit ted. In his testimony the defendant stontly denied the killing. The most damaging witness against the prisoner was Joseph Johnston, the owner of the famous shanty at Jeannette. He testified that he saw Smith deliberately shoot Green. Oliver Lemon, the cashier of the First National Bank of Pittsburg, went on the stand this evpnint and testified tn tlip trnnA nhn-rvnte of the defendant. He was in the employ of Mr. Lemon for a number of vears. and the latter stated that Smith was a quiet and peaceable young man. Ex-Governor Latta, the leading counsel for the defense, addressed the jury for the defense, and was followed by District At torney Ogden. Judge Hunter will deliver his charge to the jury in the morning. It is the impression that Smith will be con victed of murder in the first degree. A WOMAK'S BRUTAL TREATMENT. A Husband Assists Two Men to Abuno His Wifo This Morning. Shortly before 1 o'clock this morning Martin Farrell, William Marquis and Frank Gallagher, of the Eleventh ward, went to the house of the former, at the corner of center avenue ana Arthur street, and pro ceeded to abuse Mrs. Farrell. They knocked her down, beat her and while lying on the floor robbed her of $87. . The officers in the Eleventh ward station had heard the racket, and rushing over found the men beating the woman. They found Gallagher in the act of striking her as she was lying almost insensE ble on the floor. Mrs. Farrell's husband was assisting in the brutal treatment. The officers arrested the men and in the hat of Marquis they found $57, and $10 was stowed away in his under shirt. The woman's injuries are serious, but she will recover from the ill-treatment!

Latest advices from Samoa say that everything is juiet there. Paris, February 14. The French Min istry was defeated to-day on its proposition to revise the Constitution, and immedi ately resigned. The Chamber of Deputies was crowded. The Prince of Wales and Lord Lytton, the British Ambassador, occupied scats in the diplomatic gallery. Baron Macken, President of the Bight, moved to adjourn the debate on the revision question one week. He declared that the Bight de sired a complete revision as well as the dis solution of the Chamber. A delay of one week would enable the Government to decide in re gard to dissolution. Premier Floquct refused to entertain the motion, stating that the Government could not consent to dissolve tho Chamber. Baron Macken's motion was rejected 375 to 173. Count de Douvillo Maillefoue moved the in definite postponement of the revision debate and said: '!Thc olectoral period virtually begins to-day. Let us leave to the people the duty of indicating what kind of a revision they desire. Let us not lose time in discussing a question that is in no wise definite. Instead of pursuing a policy of egotism let us return to a policy of common sense." THE MINISTRY DEFEATED. Premier Floquct, replying reminded the House that the Government was pledged to make the revision proposal the immediate older of the day after the scrutin d'arrondisscment Dill. At the conclusion of M. Floquet's re marks a division was taken and the motion was adopted by a vote of 307 to 218. The resignation of the Ministrywas a com plete suprise to the chamber. M. 'Floquet had said nothing Implying an intention to make a motion to adjourn a Cabinet question. Both the Left and the Right were unaware bow the Ministry would regard the vote. The majority included the members of the Right and a number of Opportunists. After the adjourn ment the Ra'dical Left and the Extreme Left held a meeting and sent delegates to' M. Floquet to express regret at the fall of the Cabinet and congratulate the retiring Premier upon the firmness of the position that ho had assumed. President Carnot, after the Ministers bad tendered their resignations,sent for M. Mllline. the President of the Chamber of Deputies, and subsequently had a conference with M. Le rojer. President of the Senate. A rumor was current this afternoon that M. Malllne had been asked to form a Cabinet, but to-night it is stated that President Carnot has as yet in trusted no one witn tne task. BOULANGER'S MANIFESTO. General Boulanger was a passive spectator of the proceedings in the Chamber of Deputies. Immediately after the adjournment he issued a manifesto to the electors of the Department of the Seine. In this he claims credit for his party for "The overthrow of a discreditable ministry that was attempting to snare the country by the comedy of a proposal to revise the constitution which, if passed by the Cham ber, the Ministry well knew would be rejected by the Senate." He proceeds: "We wonld not allow the Cabinet thus to deceive universal suf rage, and to consecrate Its usurpation by doing the work of a constituent as sembly. The fall of this Ill-omened Ministry, which had already planned laws for the restric tion of liberty, will be a relief to the public con science. Iris a step further toward the disso lution of the Chamber and the convocation of a oonstitnent assembly. "After the voto ou the scrutin d'arrondissc ment bill, which, in its authors' minds, was nothing more tban a blow dealt at universal suffrage the electoral period commenced. It Is for the country to speak. Long live the Re public." THE SAM0AN SITUATION. The Belligerents Reatinc on Their Arms nnd Watching Each Other. Auckland, N. Z., February 14.

MANUAL TRAINING In the Public Schools Is Recommended by the fetnto Commission. V rmOM A STAFF COBEISFCWDENT.I Harbisburg, February 14. The com mission appointed by the Governor to devise ways and means of introducing manual training into the public schools held its final meeting in this city to-day, adjourn ing at a late hour to-night. Dr. Atherton, of the State College, presided. The other members of the commission are Prof. Luckcy, of the Pittsburg schools; Dr. Scheaffer, of Kutztown; Representative Bean, of Norrls town,and Dr. Adam H. Fetteroff, President of GIrard College. Tho commission, before adjourning, put its plans in the form of a bill, which Mr. Bean will to-morrow introduce in the House of Rep resentatives. It provides for the industrial training of both sexes, but its originators lay great emphasis on the statement that it does not provide for the teaching of trades, nor is It compulsory in its provisions. Special instruct ors are provided, but It Is designed that In time the ordinary instructors shall add the teaching of the manual branches to their present ac complishments. Nothing is taken away from the present studies. Tools and machinery will be required, as it Is intended the pupils shall learn their use in working in metal and wood. Domestic economy in ceneral will be taught the girls, and the implements used in the kitchen, the sewing room and other things necessary to the proper education of a young lady to take her place as a successful house wife will probably be as common in the schools as the tools and machinery for the training of the boys. The amount reaulred to nut the system Into operation is not stated, and will, in fact, be dependent on the rapidity whlth which the system Is adopted. Attention is, however, called to the fact that the Education Commit tee of the House this year asks an additional appropriation for the schools of $500, 000. DEFECTIVE BILLS.
