THE PITTSBUEG DISPATCH, "WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1889.
I f E Ml II Manager Phillips Tells "Why Young Baseball Players SHOULD NOT PLAYAT HOME J. A. Huggins Will Challenge Walters to a Rifle Match. ABOUT THE COUNT Y BALL LEAGUE. Jacob Schaefer Offers to Play Daly or Any body Else. GENERAL EPOrJIKG SEWS OF THE DAT Just as regular as each winter season comes there are strong complainings among local baseball admirers about the local club not giving young home players a chance. Time and time again it has been argued, ?ud is being argued by the complainers that Pitts burg has lost many good men because of neglecting promising home talent. Now that local players, that is young players coming into prominence, are more numerous than ever, the complaints above re ferred to are proportionately stronger. Those who have a strong desire to see home talent tested at home have some good reasons and arguments on their side.' Eat the officials of the local club have also a good case. During a conversation on the question yesterday Man ager Phillips said some very interesting things, and tendered advice to young players that Is worth making a note of. He said: "It is a great mistake for anybody to think that we are not prepared to give every young local player all the encouragement possible. There are many reasons, however.why it seems better for THESE TODSG PLAYEKS, and to a great extent better for the club, that they should mabe their professional debut out side their own city. The benefits to be derived arc greater in favor of the players than for the club. "Were I a younc player, and knowing what I do now, I certainly would not want to make my reputation in my own city. I'll tell you why. A young player in his own town ap pears before hundreds that he knows person ally. He is anxious beyond what is required to do great things, and this over-anxiety begets a nervousness that has a tendency to ruin his prospects completely. The familiar crowd jeers him for the mistakes that nervousness causes him to make, and he cets from bad to worse. Tiiis is true because we all have found, both young and old, that there is ever a particularly strong desire to do great things at home. 'I will suppose a case from another stand point. Suppose a young plaj er begins hi good work in his own city and does first class. Say he knocks out two or three good bits in a game and fields brilliantly. There are two evil ten dencies which may follow. He may, by the hurrahs and hero-worship of his friends, cet the sn elled-head fever, and that will injure him. He will also be lionized in a way that will tempt him to live too fast for a while. There is still another probable outcome; lie may, after doing splendid work, make a series of pardonable mistakes and then DOWIf GOES HIS STOCK in the estimation of the majority of his townsmen, and he becomes disheartened. It is a fact that when a player does a great thins there is a prevailing opinion among a lnrfre number of people to the effect that lie should continue to do great things. Altogether I firm ly hold the opinion that as a rule a young play er who wants to mo in the baseball profession should ioin a club outside his own city " There was plenty of talk about among the amateur baseball players yesterday. The action of the County League at its meeting on Monday evening has, to say the least, caused consider able dissatisfaction. Of course the league had good reason for its action, and the fact also re mains that all the clubs applying for admission could not be admitted. However, a represent ative of the W. J. Kuehnes, one of the rejected clubs, makes the following statement: "We wore, indeed, surprised to learn that McKeesport was admitted in view of the fact that not long ago McKeesport deemed almost every club in the league insolvent, and said very ungenerous things about the organ ization. Besides, look at the great distance be tween Emsworth and McKeesport, and from all accounts the latter's grounds are most miserably located. However, we feel hopeful that we will still be in the league, because it seems certain that Braddock will not material ize. The Duquesnes will also disappear, at any rate the Marshalls will play in the name of the Dnquesnes. But the great objection I have is that the entire proceedings were illegal. The unan imous consent of the entire league was needed to select four clubs, and Braddock's represen tatives were absent. Xo club was, therefore, admitted by unanimous consent." An official of the league, in replv to the above, said: "We could not possibly satisfv everybody, ana no matter what clubs had been selected there would have been discontent. We heard every case stated, and certainly agreed on clubs that appeared most likely to continue through the season." THE M'KEESPORT CLUB. KIcbtengnle and Nnnghton Will be Signed by Manager Tarreyson. Manager Tarreyson. of the'McKeesport Club, will proceed at once to effect the organization of the club at that place and elect the officers, after which he will select the men and place them. Xichtengale and Naugh. ton, the latter being a mute but a good catcher, are the first to be selected. The McKeesport Driving Park will be selected as the grounds. Tarreyson and Baker will sign with the Mansfield and Speer and Jones with the Mem phis Clubs. Youngmanwill pitch for one of the Allegheny County League Clubs. New Orleans Races.

L, notified the Coney Island Jockey Club to-day that he wanted Galore to remain in the Suburban handicap, and he inclosed a check to the horse's credit. Maxwell is expected back from England, early next week, when he will no doubt make ar rangements to put his horse in tbe bands of a competent trainer. It was rumored uptown to-night that Galore was amiss and that a vet erinary had gone down to see him. Sullivan Under Cover. New Yoek. February 19. John L. Sullivan rived in town yesterday and registered at the Grand Union Hotel. He kept well under cover the whole day. While he is here he will prob ably fix np tbe preliminaries for a testimonial benefit He will probably soon go on a sparring tonr extending to the Pacific Mope. Sullivan has lost his haggard look and his body is fast filling out to those proportions that won for him tbe title of the "Big Fellow." K has evaded all his old haunts so far. and will 'rob ably keep rather dark during his visit Scliaefer's Domestic Trouble. The wife of Jacob Schaefer, the billiard champion. Is lying very ill at the residence of her father, John Hines. Allegheny. The champion states, in reply to the many chal lenges of Slosson and Daly, that he is willing to play any ol them for a reasonable amount of money. At present however, amid his do mestic tronble, it is hardly likely tbat he will make any definite engagement. SInj linn Again. David B. Sheehan. the veteran sprinter, re fumed from New Castle yesterday, where he defeated Holden in a 100-yard race. Sheehan says tbe race was a good one. Holden's backers want another race at To yards for JLOOOl It is likely that the match will be made. i BALL BESIDE VESUVIUS. Naples Honors, the Globe Trottcrs-Fnlr Lndlcs nnd Decorated Men Witness a Gnme An Audience With the Pope Planned Where They Piny In Rome. fBV CABLE TO TUB DISPATCH. Nat-les, February 10. The first game of baseball by Spalding's globe trotters was plajed here this afternoon with great eclat. The bases were pitched on the camp of Sit marte military parade ground, which is occa sionally used for cricket purposes, and 3,000 people saw us play. The assemblage was pic turesque as well as a motley one. Around the field , were many carriages containing beautiful ladies in bright attire, bnl iantly dressed military officers glittering in gold buttons, and hundreds of peasants from the neighboring villages. Among the notables were Consul General Camphausen and daughter, and the Consul Generals of the S tbcrlands, Switzerland, Norway and Sweden, with their families; the rector of the Anglican Church, Lady Holden and daughter, Admiral Acton and family, Commandatore Sizz and family, and many other shining society lights. The playing ground is about five miles east of the center of the city, and is overlooked by Vesuvius on the south and the snow topped Apennines on the east. The former looked lovely, and the latter very impressive. The weather was very mild to-day, the temperature being delightful, the turf bespangled with daisies, and the sky clear enough to redeem Italy's reputation, which some of our party had began to doubt. The American and English tourists present took great interest in the game, which was very close until the fifth inning, in which Bald win was pounded for seven. The game was called at the end of the fifth inning, and the 4,000 people who saw the first game of baseball ever played in Italy returned to their honjes greatly pleased with the sport Following is the score by innings. Baldwin and Daly were the Chicago battery, and Healy and Earle for the All-Americas: Score: Chicagos 0 0 0 2 02 All Americas 0 0 0 178 Our game in Rome will be played on Satur day, at the Villa Borghese, with the Prince's consent It is expected .that King Humbert will be present The head of the American College in Rome has applied, on bebalf of the party, to the Pope to grant us an audience, and it is expected the great favor will bo granted us. HUGGIKS MEANS BUSINESS. lie Will Challenge Bernard Wnltcra to c. Shooting Mutch. Mr. Joseph A. Huggins, the famous rifle shot of this city, has resolved to definitely challenge Bernard Walters to shoot a match of 100 shots for 100 a side, open for &50 a side. Mr. Hug gins' action has been prompted by the spread caglo challenges of Mr. Walters, together with the pressure of his, Huggins', friends. Yes terday Mr. Huggins received a letter from Mr. Frank Hart, Doylestonn, Pa., wherein Mr. Hart offers to stand $50 with him, Huggins, if he will shoot Walters. T. T. Cartwright, of Springfield, Mass.. also offers to stand $25 in Mr. Huggins' stake. Last eveningMr. Huggins said: "Mr. Walters has been offering to shoot anybody, bnt he now wants to confine the 100 ;bots to three hours. A limit of this kind is unreasonable. I will shoot him on the Walnut Hill ran ge, Boston, in the regular vt ay, and this ought to suit him, be cause he is in New York and, therefore, much nearer Boston than "lain." A match between these experts on fair terms will be of national interest, and if a contest does not take place it will be no lault of Mr. Huggins. ARRANGING FOR THE RACE. The 142-Hour Contest to Tako Plnce In April. Arrangements are fast being completed for the proposed 142-hour pedestrian contest which is to take place in the Grand Central Rink un-' der the management of Harry Davis. The con test will start five minutes after midnight on April 8. Manager Davis received a letter from George Noremac yesterday, in which the latter says that all the leading pedestrians in the country will take part in tbe contest Manager Davis -has decided to charge 15 en trance fee, and this will provide each starter with a free cot and stove. Noremac thinks that there will be at least between 30 and 40 starters. A new feature will be a prize of 25 for the man who covers tbe most miles each day. This prize will be in addition to the per centage of tbe receipts. The race promises to be a great one. Woodard's Combination Sale. Lexington, February 19. At W. T.

In a glove fight to day between Fritchard and Hayes for 100 a side, the latter was complete! v knocked out,his nose and jaw being broken. His friends broke into the ring and a free fight ensued. Sporting Notes. Jack Ashton wants to fight McCaffrey. Egmont has been "declared out of the Sheepshead Bay handicap. Ed Hakwn says he will play In Pittsburg unless there Is a serious hitch on the question of salary. There is little fear on that point, so we may safely say tbat he'll play here. Kilkain offers to fight Jem Smith in April or May if he conies to this country. Ward's preference for Boston will cause a flutter among thq Giants and Senators. Isince their connection with the League Morrill, Anson, Hines, O'Rourke, White, Sut ton, Williamson. Kelly and Ward have each plaj ed in over 1,000 championship games. Chakixy Mitchell, in a letter to Jake Kilrain, states that he will sail for America on March 6. lie docs"not refer to his match with Jem Smith, bnt says tbat he has.posted a for feit for Kilrain to tight the Englishman next November. Upon his arrival Mitchell will spar through the Far West with Kilrain, winding up in time for Kilrain to go in training for the Sullivan fight Efforts are being made to arrange a row ing match on the Thames, England, between Australian, American and English crews of eight Several of the leading English oarsmen have signified their willingness to participate, and it is understood that correspondence has been opened with the representative American and Australian scullers, with a view of con cluding terms. It is desired that the prizes shall be larger than any hitherto competed for. This is the way Sunday talks at the gospel meetings: "Satan don't want to' get a youni man who after a while may dispute with him tbo realm of everlastin ' meanness. You bet he don't. It is the generous young man, the warm-hearted young man, the ardent young man, the sociable young man who is in danger, my friends. He's the fellow that Satin behind the bat wants to catch napping. He's the chap that the devil in the box wants to pull on with a snake curve. Hold your base Wait for your balL" GEOYEK ABJO TAEIFF. That Is the Cry cf the Amcrlcnu Reform Association at Chicago Cleveland Writes n Strong Letter Gcorco n Favorite. Chicago, February 19. The convention of the American Tariff Eeform Association began business at the Madison Street Thea ter at 2 o'clock this afternoon, when John Z. White, Secretary of the Association, called the meeting to order. Mr. "White said that the object o! the convention was to arouse popular sentiment on the question of a reform in the tariff. He then read the following letter from President Cleveland: I have received the invitation of the Tariff Refonn League to be prescntat the convention of tariff reformers to be held in Chicago. I have also, read the circular of the league accom panying this invitation, in which the objects and purposes of the proposed convention are specifically set foith. The scheme of prac tical and efficient work therein described meets with my hearty approval and promises, if honestly adhered to, the most valuable aid in the furtherance of a cause which is very near to the interests and welfare of our people. The danger which we have to guard against is the misleading of oar countrymen by specious theories, cunningly contrived, and falsely offer ing to the neonle relief from present burdens. and the legitimate expense necessary to sepure the benefits of beneficient rule under the sanc tion of free institutions. Tbe declared purpose of your League will not be attained nntil all those Interested in the economic question which is now impressed upon their attention are freed from all sophis tries and clouding fallacies, and until the sub ject of tariff reform is presented to them as a topic involving the relief of hc plain people of the land, in their homes, from useless and un just expense. The question is a i-iraple and plain one, and needs but to be fairly presented to be understood. It is the positive duty of your organization to guard tbe people against deception. My extreme interest in the work which your league has undertaken, and in the expressed objects of the proposed convention, would lead me to accept your invitation if it were possible to do so. But my public duties here positively prevent such acceptance. Hoping tbat the convention will bo very successful, and with an earnest wish for the prosperity and success of your league in its efforts to enlighten and ben- ent tne people, i. am, yours very truly, Gkovee Cleveland. A number of speeches were delivered. The first was by Thos. G. Shearman, of New York, who advocated absolute free trade. B. K. Bowker, of New York, another of the orators, was sorry that his State had not done its duty in November, but he claimed for the State' the credit of furnishing the leader in the great work of educating the people into the acceptance of the principles .of free trade. This evoked applause, as indeed did every reference to Mr. Cleveland. J. Sterling Morton was made permanent Chairman and Aretas W. Thomas Secre tary. Mr. Morto"n sounded the keynote of his remarks in the declaration that: "The tariff is for robbery it should be reformed for revenue or repealed for justice." To-night Central Music Hall was filled with people who came to hear Governor Buckncr, Chas. K. Ladd nnd Mr. Shear man inadrocacy of the purposes of the convention. New York delegates to the convention occupied boxes on the right of the stage, Henry George in their midst. While the hall was filling Mr. George was pointed out to the new-comers, and many cries lor a speech were made. Mr. George declined to respond. ' A TISIT0E ON 'CHANGE. Denmark, n Mouse-Colored Mule, Creates a Decided Scnsntlon. I6PXCIAL TELIOltAM TO THE DISPATCH.l New Yoek, February 19. A sleek and close-clipped mouse-colored mule, decorated with red, white and blue paper rosettes, and with a knot of ribbons at the end of its well shaved tail, was led into New street at high noon to-day. Around the mule's neck were more ribbons, from which hung a placard giving the mule's name as "Denmark," and telling that it had been voted at the Man hattan Dispensary Fair to Thomas C. Buck, of E I Enos & Co. The mule was docile enough, and rather melancholy looking. It couldn't be taken into the office of tbe firm, and couldn't stand out in the cold. It was too closely clipped for that. So it was led first into the big office of the United States Ex press building, opening on New street, and lrom,there was taken right into the board room of the Stock Exchange. rXne mule had to kneel and partly crawl through tbe storm doors leading to the Ex change floor, but the feat was accomplished. Alfred DeCordova mounted the mule and forced it to prance around the board room. The next rider was Edward Chase, and then others took turns until Mr. Buck came in and claimed his property and took it away. WAT BILLING AND WEIGHTS Will be Examined by Joint Inspectors nnd Discrepancies Remedied. Nmv Yoke, February 19. The trunk line Board of Presidents had under consid eration to-day the alleged manipulation of rates on traffic from western points via Peoria and other competitive junctions, and the action of the Peoria Board of Trade boycotting the inspection of billing. The trunk lines have agreed not to continue joint rate on other traffic arrangements with any connecting roads" engaged in manipula tions and devices which clearly violate re cent agreements and the inter State com mercelaw. In order to be assured that freight is here after correctly billed at published tariff rates and correct weights, they have also further agreed to make a condition of the continuance of traffic arrangements that the joint inspectors shall examine way billing and weights and correct tbe s.ime whenever round improper, ana have ordered such iu spection put in effect at once. TOO CHEAP TO BE GOOD. Erie Voters Wouldn't Have a Ulan Who Would Work for Kothins. rSPECIAIi TELEGEAM TO TUB DISFATCII.1 Eele, Pa., February 19. To-day's elec tion resulted in the election of Charles Clarke, Democrat, over Frank F. Cleve land, Eepublican, by about 900. The de feat of Mr Cleveland by so large a majority was the result of a popular feeling in favor of paying the Mayor a salary and requiring bim to devote his time to the office. Cleveland is a leading manufacturer and Clarke has been the City Controller for two terms. The Democrats carried both branches of Council. The day was cold, but agreeable, and about half of the vote was polled. CAM0T CABINETLESS Even Obscure lieu Are Afraid to Enter Meline's Proposed Ministry.' ROTJLANGER GAINS A EECEUIT From tbe Eepublican- Banks, and a Stam pede is a Possibility. TflEI SAI HE IS BACKED BI RUSSIA, The Czar Being Anxious to Repay Floquet for Kot Kicking Up a Eow. Carnot is still without a Cabinet. Even obscure politicians seem tq be afraid of en tering Meline's proposed ministry. M. De Freycenet has been called, and will give his answer to-day. In the meantime a Ee publican deputy has flopped to Boulan ger, and others are expected to follow him. It is said that the Pan-Slavists are supply, ing the General with gold to carry on his campaign. This sensational story comes from Pcsth. Pabis, February 19. In spite of con tinued negotiations, the settlement of the Cabinet crisis appears as distant as ever. The failure of M. Meline indicates the ab solute impossibility of forming a Cabinet on Ferryist or Opportunist lines. It was to demonstrate this that President Carnot in sisted so strongly that M. Meline attempt the task, saving that if he could not suc ceed no man in his group could hope to do better. President Carnot to-day offered the Pre miership to M. Tirard, only to meet with another refusal. He then sent M. Tirard to summon M. Meline, whom he urged to make another effort under fresh conditions. M. Meline steadily declined to undertake the task. The difficulty of the position may be realized from the fact that an obscure poli tician named Prevet was afraid to risk en tering M. Meline's proposed ministry. Later, President Carnot summoned Senator Magnin, a former Minister, and a well ac credited report says that the President strongly inclines toward a Cabinet formed mainly of Senators, conceiving that such a ministry would have a better prospect of se curing general support than a Government composed of the more pronounced members of the Chamber; but late this evening noth ing had been settled. There is no basis for the rumors regarding an extra parliamentary (Jabinet, which would be unconstitutional. Deputy De lattero has withdrawn bis motion in favor of the formation of a ministry outside of par liament. At a meeting of the Badical Left, several Deputies expressed themselves in favor of a "concentration Cabinet," having a special mandate to conduct elections and comprising a Minister of the Interior ac ceptable to all the Bepubitcan groups. President Carnot will probably be obliged to give the' new Cabinet the right qf dis solution. Ex-President Grevy has been taken sud denly ill. It is feared that his constitution will break down. The members of his family are very anxious. The report that General Boulanger would make a tour of Italy and Hungary is denied. M. Mellot, the Eepublican Deputy for Cher, has written to Boulanger announcing his ad hesion to the Boulangist programme. Boulangists now claim to have 70 adher ents in tbe Chamber of Deputies. Several other members are expected to follow the ex ample of Deputy Mellot. Midnight It is reported that M. De Freycinet has been approached with the view of his forming a Cabinet, and that he has promised to give his answer to-morrow. BOULANGER BACKED BT THE CZAR, Too Pnn-SlaTlsts Said to Ilnvo Famished Him With the Sinews of War. Pestii, February 19. The Pester Lloyd professes to have secret knowledge of the source from whence General Boulanger de rives his election funds. It says the Pan Slavists staked their hopes on General Boulanger, and the political success he has achieved is to no small extent due to the support given to his cause by Bussia. The journal further declares that M. Floquet owes his defeat to his disinclina tion to pick a quarrel with Germany or Italy for the sake of giving Eussia free play. It says: "Eussia desires to separate Austria-Hungary from the triple alliance, but her efforts are doomed to failure. We shall stand where we are called by our treaties to stand, and we shall be seen neither with the enemies of our friends nor with the friends of our enemjes." The paragraph is believed to have been in spired by Count Kalnoky, who is now in Pesth. O'BRIEN AGAIN JAILED. The Defiant Bublin Editor Gets Six Months An 31. P. Arrested. Dublin, February 19. When the case of Mr. William O'Brien was resumed at Tralee, to-day, Mr. O'Brien relused to allow Mr. Healy, his counsel, to apologize for the language the latter had used to Colonel Turner during the progress of the case yes terday. Mr. O'Brien also declined to make any further defense against the charges brought against him under the crimes act. The magistrate thereupon sentenced Mr. O'Brien to six months' imprisonment with out hard labor. Mr. James Laurence Carew, M. P. for North Kildare, was arrested to-day in the eastern division of Perthshire, where an election is being held. He was taken into custody at the house of Mr. Kintoch. the vGladstonian contestant for the seat, on a warrant issued against him in Ireland for refusing to answer a summons for violating the crimes act. A MILD REPRIMAND. Enslcnd Inclined to Feel a Bit TJncnsr Abont II cr Canadian Child. London, February 20. The Times re ferring to the debate in the Canadian Parlia mentfsays: There is no occasion for Canadians to begin to calculate tbe profit: and loss of their connec tion with England. The real causo, of their troubles is certainly not indifference to Canadi an interests on the part of England. The cause will be found in well-known exigencies of the Presidental election of the United States. We shall not anticipate what tbe Harrison Cabinet will do, but we may fairly hope tbat questions of immediate interest to Canada will be recon-. sidered without prejudice and with mutual good will. Another Home Kale Straw. London, February 19. In the Parlia mentary election in Eastern division of Perthshire to-day Mr. Kinlock, the Glad stonian candidate, received 4,005 votes, and Mr. Boase, Unionist, 2,289. In the last election the Gladstonian received 3,504, and the Unionist 2,195. Germany Boring Gnm. London, February 20.

Prof. Geffcken denies the truth of the report that he intends to publish a pamphlet dealing with the trial. ane report mat uourt Chaplain otoecKer would resign or be relieved of his office is not confirmed. He could only be relieved as the result of a disciplinary inquiry, and concerning such an inquiry nothing has yet transpired.

There is a rumor that during a flying visit to Nisch, at a Con sular reception, the King intimated pretty plainly an intention to abdicate. He is Re ported to have said: "Let me tell you that I am the symbol of the past of Servia. Its future nay, its very present belongs to my son." With these words he pushed Prince Alexander into the circle of Minis ters and Consuls, and turned away.

GIVEN UP Iff DESPAIE. Booster Republicans at Last Believe Bar rison's Cabinet is About Mnde Up They Have to Grin nnd Bear It History Again Repeated. 1SFECU.L TELEGKA1I TO THE DISPATCH. 1 Indianapolis, February 19. Disbelief has given way to grim despair. The Hoosier Eepublican leaders who couldn't believe that the Cabinet as printed in The Dis patch yesterday was correct, are becoming convinced against their will, and express their feelings in copio"us and elaborate pro fanity. General Harrison's Cabinet, so far as the rioosiers are concerned, seems to be one of ihose things that the more it is seen the less it is liked, and tbe prospect of any improvement in it between now and March 4 is not brilliant. General Harri son's much talked-of backbone, theHoosiers believe, will be just strong enough to make him stick obstinately to his selections now that they are made. W. H. H. Miller, the law partner, of the President-elect, is the man who was thought most likely to be knocked ont as a sop to the dissatisfied critics of the Cabinet, but to-night at least two Eepublicansof national reputation who have called Miller's an- pointment ill advised, admit that it is fixed. Aside from Warner Miller, whose acceptance of the Department of Agri culture is doubtful, the least certain man on the list is Thomas, of Illinois, for the Navy. General Harrison has determined to leave one place open until he gets to Washington, so as to be free to deal with possible complicatiors arising at the last moment. The open, place is the Navy De partment. If Miller declines the Department of Agriculture, and it goes to Palmer of Mich igan, then the geographical balance will be restored, probably, by the, dropping of Thomas and the substitution of a New York man, or of Proctor,of Vermont. If cir cumstances make this change inadvisable, Eusk may be dropped and Proctor go into the War Department, but this is improba ble. It is also possible tbat the Pacific coast may be provided for by the dropping of Thomas. There is even more of a duplication of history about the selection of Windom for the Treasury than has been supposed, if a story told here to-night is correct. It is said that J. C. New holds a letter from James A. Garfield, making a qualified tender to him, in 1881, of the Treasury De partment. Garfield was very anxious to get an Indiana man into his Cabinet, and Harrison and Porter bad each declined. It is said that the appointment of New was then prevented by the efforts of Mr. Blaine, who shoved Windom in ahead of him. The choice of General Harrison, last week, for the same department, was last week practi cally narrowed down to New or Windom, and it was the efforts of the Blaine men that again put Windom ahead.

The Thurlow Eival of the Hainsworth Failure Full of Flaws. ITS ACCEPTANCE NOT PE0BABLE. The Star Gauge Shows it is Fairly .Lined With Cracks and Hole3. IT MIGHT AS WELL DATE BURST, And the Only Wonder Seems to bo That it Did Stand the Firing Test. The chance's for the acceptance by the Government of the open-hearth cast steel gun made by the Standard Company, of Thurlow, are daily decreasing. As the ex amination of the gun progresses the weapon is found to be full of flaws, cracks and holes. As the specifications are very parr ticular on this point, it is scarcely probable the Thurlow gun, even if it did stand a test with powder, has any more show with the Government than its Pittsburg rival would have had if it hadn't exploded. (SPECIAL TELEQRJOI TO THE DISFATCH.l Washington, February 19. The ex amination of the open-hearth steel cast gun made at the works of the Standard Com pany at Thurlow, near Chester, Pa., is still in progress at the proving grounds at Annapolis, under the superintendence of Lieutenant Commander Dayton, and the farther the search proceeds the more it be comes evident that the naval authorities cannot accept the gun. The Ordnance Bureau is to-day in receipt of several bore impressions from the Lieutenant, which exhibit more serious flaws in the interior walls of the weapon than there were at any previous time suspected. Though the authorities at the bureau will express no opinion, the inference is that in the proving of the gun the- explosion and the friction of the projectile broke away thin partitions of metal which concealed these flaws when the gun was in process of smooth boring and'riflins, and a natural conjecture is that the entire casting is full of these cracks and holes. , HOW THE TEST IS MADE. The bore impressions are taken on India rubber. An instrument is used which nearly fits the bore, but with one small sec tion at one side wedge-shaped, that it may be slid back along the larger section thus leaving, when in that position, increased space between the instrument and tbe wall of the gun at that side. A broad piece of India rubber, softened with hot water, is placed on this wedge-like section, and it is then, by means of long handles, slid into its proper position. closing the bore and pressing the rubber with great force into the grooves, against the interior walls of the gun, and, of course, into any holes or flaws that may be there. The result is an infallible imprint of the interior of tbe weapon, which cannot be disputed by the most skeptical in regard to tbe purposes of the Navy Department in its treatment of the steel cast guns. The impressions forwarded by Mr. Day ton to-day, though they are taken from a very small portion of the interior of tbe gun, exhibit an almost startling array of flaws, principally in the form of "blow holes," some of them an inch long and half an inch deep. Other places show a rough surface, indicating the presence of innumer able smaller holes, which have been broken into by the force of the explosion and the friction of the shell. WHERE THE WONDEE LIES. If these impressions are an example of the condition ot the casting throughout, as it seems fair to assume, the wonder is that thl gun endured the strain of a single fire, and the fact that it did endure it in this imper fect condition excites the query as to the strength of a perfect casting, which may possibly be much greater than that of a b'uilt-np gun, as was asserted by Superin tendent Baldt, of the Standard works, would be the case with sn open-hearth gun, per fectly cast and properly tempered. The present question, however, is, Will this gun be accepted? If not, the result of all this bother will be rather discouraging to manufacturers, and they may not care to go into further costly exneriments if a gun which stood the test of the ten rounds is thrown aside because of a slightly unusual expansion and the presence of a lotof little holes. But the specifications are rigid, and it is not to be supposed that the ordnance bureau and the Secretary of the Nary will abate one jot of them for. the purpose of en couraging the manufacture or further ex periment with guns of which every man in the navy is afraid. STBICT SPECIFICATIONS. The first paragraph of the specifications stipulates that "the castings from which these guns are made must be composed of steel of domestic manufacture, made from the best quality of raw material, uniform in quality throughoutihe mass, and free from slag, seams, cracks, xavities, flaws, blow holes, unsoundness, foreign substances and all other defects affecting their resistance value." In the twenty-first paragraph it is stated that a"critical inspection will be made after the test, anrj tbe piece must not exhib it any defects or weakness." The "critical test," it is !afe to say, will not be less critical than it ought to be, and it has shown, so far as it has been carried by means of the electric light and the star gauge, that there is an expansion in parts of the powder chamber from eight to pine thousandths of an inch, and in only slightly lesser degree in parts of the piece near the muzzle. 'This is nearly one hundredth part of an inch, and, as only four-hundredths of an inch is allowed for the "grip" of the shell, it will be easily recognized how seri ous this expansion is. In other words, a projectile in passing out of a gun is sup posed to be compressed two-hundredths of an inch on each side, to give it a grip on the rifles and receive its rotary motion, and jnst as tbat grip is lessened the projectile loses in force. ONXY ONEAXTEBN ATiyE. This expansion, in connection with the extraordinary exhibit of flaws, which seem now to exceed anything suspected or found in the Pittsburg gun, 'will almost certainly decide the navy authorities to reject the gun without an if or a but, and then all ex perimenting will be at an end until Con gress provides an appropriation for further tests, or until manufacturers, led on by this near approach to success, are willing to conduct experiments at their own expense. Of course not a word is dropped to indi cate the verdict of the department until the report is all in and the evidence can be weighed as a whole, but it may as well be set down now as an accomplished fact that the Standard gun will no' more be accepted than if it had blown to pieces like irs Pitts burg twin. The $5,300, which a successful proving would have put in the pocket of the Standary Companv, will remain in the Treasury, alongside" of the 53,000 Mr. Hainsworth would have captured if the Bessemer gun had withstood the test. "I do not say that ibe Standard gun will not be accepted," said a high authority of the Navy Department to-day, in conversa tion witn the 'correspondent of The Dis patch, "but I will say that a built-up gun, showing similar defects, would be promptly thrown back on the hands of the manufac turers as good 'for nothing but to interred in the cemetery for old iron. But it is not thought or desired at the Department that this should be the end of experiments with, the cast gun. On the contrary many ex perts in ordnance have been led by the brief experiments to believe tbat tbe cast gun is a thing of the near future, but that the successful piece will be secured only by increased care, new appliances and new methods of removing impurities from the metal.

Many of the Bodies Taken From tbe Scene of the Hotel Disaster Are Burned Al most Beyond Recognition Tho Two Engineers PleadXot Guilty to Man slaughter. Hartfobd, February 19. The work of rescue at the scene of yesterday's disaster was resumed to-day. The remaining portion of the hotel proper has been pulled down, leaving only the four-story annex. This has filled the excavation already made with an immense accumulation of masonry, lath and timber, and at the present time it is very doubtful whether any more bodies can be recovered for many hours. No bodies have been recovered since noon. At 7 p. m. the military were relieved bv a force of special police and the work of searching the ruins, which had been sus pended for an hour to allow the tired men to procure supper and a little rest, was again actively lesumed. The last body taken from the ruins at about noon, report ed as that of a tramp named Boyle, is now believed to be that of "William Seymour, of this citywho sometimes assumed the name of Boyle, and who has a brother and a mar ried sister residing here. The Chief of Police has received a descrip tion of Mr. Illoway, of Cincinnati, by tele graph, which identifies the unknown body beyond a doubt. The excitement has great ly decreased and only a comparatively small number of spectators are Watching the workmen Alexander Thuyer, the engineer, who was arrested yesterday, charged with man slaughter, was in court .this morning. At the time of opening of court Amos Bisley, assistant engineer, had not been found. He was in charge ol the boiler at the time ot hanking the fire at midnight. Soon after the opening of court Bisley was brought in, and the two men on a charge of man slaughter pleaded notguiltv, and their cases were adjourned for one week. Bail has not been obtained. .The men assert they are in no way responsible for the horror. The following is the full list of the dead to date: George Gaines, colored porter; Dwight H. Buell, jeweler, Hartford; GeorgeEngler, drug clerk, Hartford: J. W. Housmann, Boston; J. C. Hill, Buffalo; Louis H. Bronson, wile and child, Hartford; George J.

The ten patients at the hospital are all doing well to-day, and will recover. A FEIGHTFUL EAMPAGB. A Wild Steer Dashes Ont Penn Avcnno nnd Injures Pedestrians. A wild steer made his appearance on Thirty-second street last evening, and, be fore he was killed, succeeded in injuring several people, one of whom, James Miller, employed at Carnegie's Thirty-third street mill, was very seriously hurt. The animal ran from Thirty-second street to Penn avenue, and, passing up that ave nue, knocked down several men and a child. One colored man was thrown heavily against a telegraph pole, bnt was not seri ously hurt. An employe at the traction power house was also injured. -At Thirty-seventh street a man put two bullets in the animal's head, but he dashed over to the pavement, and, catching Miller on his horns, threw him into the air. Miller was injured internally. George Smith, a Penn avenue butcher, killed the animal with a rifle. A DOUBLE HEADER. How a. Blast Exploded Dynamite and Shook Up a Commnnltr. Bellefonte, February 19 A heavy blast to-day at the Bellefonte Furnace Com pany's quarry caused a large rock to fall on a box containing a hundred pounds of dynamite, causing an explosion. The doors and windows were blown out of a dozen of the company's houses and a number of boxes of glass were destroyed in the glass works. The shock was felt in town a mile away, where windows were broken and plaster was knocked from the walls of a number of houses. Fortunately the employes were out of reach at the time and no person was killed. A Benevolent Union. The Swift Union, W. C. T. TX, will pur chase a piece, of property on Park way, near Federal street, for headquarters, and will erect a large bni'ding as soon as possi ble, in order to afford temporary shelter for women and children, and perhaps a kinder garten and kitchen garden.
