-. . , kr . wl.'trtJ" Jltf" I V WONT HAVE BOXING, The East End Gymnasts Don't ' ant the Manly Art W PUBLIC EXHIBITIONS; President Barber Mates a Statement of the Club's Standing. - BALL GOSSIP OF LOCAL INTEREST, Hiller Offers to Join STrartwood's Projected Team for the South. 'GENERAL SPOBTIKG KEWS OP THE DiT It certainly trill be interesting to the (sporting public to know that one of the most prominent athletic clubs in "Western, Pennsylvania has resolved to nave nothing more to do with boxing exhibitions, either public or private. The club- in question is the .East End Gymnasium. The title is to some extent misleading, because it is hap pily an organization for the physical de velopment of everybody who becomes a member of it Of course boxing is a feature, anfl a great one of all thorough-going or ganizations whose object is to make mem bers expert in using their arms and legs, and to a great extent their brains. Many members of the E. E. G. looked at the matter in this light, and were disposed to have models of fistic culture perform in the clnb's rooms now and again. This meant tbe engagement ' of the best exponents of the "manly art," ana the matter was decided at a recent meeting of 'the clnb's directors. Tbe meeting, of course, was an important one, because of the questions at issue. Here tofore tolerably good exhibitions of boxing have been given to the members of the club by outsiders. JfOT A LEGAL CUSTOM. It was discovered that this custom was no more legally or morally important than having "McCaffrey and Dempsey there to give an exbi "hitibn. The truth is several members, imbued ,with a desire to have the best quality of goods pnt up, were figuring on having the two promi nent exponents of-the "art" appear before the club. The last meetine of the directors, however, killed all hopes and expectations in this-direc-tion. After a lig discussion pro and con, it was decided that no more boxing exhibitions of any kind be permitted in rooms controlled, owned or leased by the club. The discussion on this question, it is stated, was Interesting and in strnctive. The opponents of boxing were, theo retically. In favor of it just as much as they were in favor of two contestants competing on a horizontal bar. One gentleman, however, an ex-newspaperman, very wisely pointed out that boxing had degenerated to snch a low level that no club of repute could well afford to encour age it. He argued that to patronize the best class of professional talent was cqnal to giving business to men who are simply deceiving the public whenever opportunity affords. He further Claimed that the members of the club could learn all the leading principles of either boxing or any other athletic exercise without connecting the club with any. professionals at all. except the instructor. tvtti. jroT axaow boxing. As a result it was decided that the club will not allow or tolerate any boxing exhibition out side of its members, and then only as an occa sional incident, under any circumstances. Begardlng the above President Barker, of the iE. E. G- was questionea yesterday by a repre 'sentative of .this paper. He said: "Of course iwe have decided to have no more box! tic at our 'club, that is boxing exhibitions. Whatever our various opinions about tbe art of self-de-jense may be, it seems that public exhibitions of that art will not add any prestige to our club. Personally. I may say every member of theclubrecoznizesthe worth of one using his hands or fists in a time of need. We can, however, learn this art at onr rooms with out having public exhibitions. While we are willing to encourace all legitimate sports by our patronage we sire not inclined to connect ourselves with aiding systems and men who are very questionable in their dealings with the public We have a wealthy membership, and gentlemen who are disposed to aid anytbine onest that is akin to our organization; but speaking in bChalf of ourselves, I say that we, in the light of modern transactions, are in clined to remain free from anything that will connect us with affairs that none of us care to sympathize with. "We have engaged an instructor, at a good figure, to take charge of the athletic features of the gymnasium. He comes from Chicago and will commence duties to-morrow. His credentials state that he will teach members all .the features of physical development. Now, (really, that is what we want, and that ought to 'end ail talk." THE COUNTY LEAGUE. Haw the 10-Clnb Schedule Can be Carried Out. Secretary Barr, of the Allegheny County League, last evening stated that the only way in which a ten-club schedule coula be arranged was to commence the season on April 13 and finish on October 10. This arrangement would result in .27 games for each dab, and that would make an odd game. The difficulty, therefore, 'would be to determine on what ground each club would hare to play. Accord ing to ordinary rules the home club would naturally have the best of tbe bargain in a monetary sense. This seems a stumbling block. Alter considering tbe matter, however, any body wfllsee that It ought not to De a stumb ling block at all as far as receipts are con cerned. Let each club in claying the odd game .agree to divide tbe receipts. That settled, if it becomes a question' of respective advantage as far as grounds are concerned, a toss can be made for choice of grounds. This is not only fair, but under the circumstances is business like; so much so that objectors will probably be those who don't want ten clubs in the league. DULLER. IS READY. He Will Go With Swartwood If Jimmy Galvln Goes. Jimmy Galvin is enthusiastic about the pro jected baseball trip of Manager Ed Swartwood. Yesterday Galvin received a letter from George Miller, the popular local catcher, in which the latter said that he will certainly go with Swart wood if Galvin goes. "Gentle Jeems" states, and very logically, that nobody can stop him or any other player from going anywhere between now and April L He further claims that a hustling trip, snch as a Southern journey would be, would do him and others good. Gal vin also says "that if the combination starts from here' they can pick up D unlap, Conway, Beckley and Staley, and a team could be put on the field to make It lively for anybody. "And well all be the better for the contests," said Galvin. On the strength of Miller's letter and Gal Tin's opinion. Swartwood has written Memphis and other Southern towns to secure dates and a guarantee. Of course the boys are not in a position to run much risk financially, ana if guarantees are forthcoming they will venture. New Orleans Winners. New OBeaS, February 28.

CLOUDS IN' THE BALL SKY. Not a Bnll to bo Turned Till the Grade Trouble Is Settled. rBriCIiX TXXEQBAM TO THE DISPATCH.? New Yoke, February 28. Dark clouds are rolling up in tbe baseball sky, and as the Pea son draws near the prospect .for trouble be comes more threatening. The great horse car strike of this city will be small compared with the strike promised by the base ball players, for tbey say that not a ball will be turned by a League player next season unless the present trouble is settled. The whole trouble comes from the new grading system, which cuts down many of tbe players' salaries, whereas tbe League con tract specifies that a player shall not sign a con tract for less than the amount of salary he re ceived during the season before. Snwders received 2,730 last season, and has been graded at $2,250. Glasscock received $3,000, and bis grade calls for $2,500. Denny, of Indianapolis, and Whitney.of Washington,have the same cause for complaint. Tbe cases of the two former men willserve as tes.s,and until they are settled not a Brotherhood player who has not as yet signed a contract wlU do so. In tbe absence of President Ward. J. C. F. Blackhurst will have charge of the case. American Trotters In Demand. The market for American trotters of speed is spreading in all directions. An Austrian syndi cate is endeavoring to purchase the famous trotter Harry Wilkes, 243K. and Rosalind Wilkes, 2JIH. from the Sire brothers. Harry Wilkes is held at 20,000 and Rosalind Wilkes at $30,000. Kcnilworth, tho trotter that was the star of Mayor Grant's stable, and was sold at auction last fall, is reported to have died of lung fever while on tbe way to South America on the steamship Advance. Kenllworth, while on the circuit five years ago, under the care of John Murphy, bid fair to work into the front rank of trotters, but he appeared to lack the stamina for braising campaigns. He waslnjnred on tbe New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad about two years ago, and that also set him back for a time. John Scannel paid $3,000 for Kenll worth at tbe auction sale, and the horse was shortly sold at an advance to Mr. PeterDuryea, who intended to enter him in trots abroad. The horse was subsequently bonght by Mr. Bicker for $5,600. His last owner thought be would prove a winner on the track in South. America. if. Y. Sun. Brnddock AH Right. Secretary Barr, of the Allegheny County League, received definite word yesterday that the Braddock club had secured grounds. The club will, therefore, remain in the league, as stated in yesterday's Dispatch. The Mc Keesportand Homestead clubs are particular ly glad of this, as it will tend to keep up an enthusiasm in these localities that couldn't be kept up were Braddock not in tbe arena. The grounds have been secured from the officials of the Bellevernon Railroad Company. Season Bnsebnll Tickets. The officials have decided on the price of tickets for next season. In prices they have drawn a wide distinction between the value of a gentleman's ticket and that of a lady. Of course the latter is favored, presumably be cause tne presence or taoies aaas more caste to the proceedines. However, the price of an ordinary season ticket will be $33 and only 100 will be issued at that figure. Season tickets for ladles will only be $10, but the number to be issued limited to SO. The tickets above named will be on sale on April I, Will Fight In the West. Boston, February 28. Yesterdayat a meet ing of the backers of Ike Weir, of Boston, and Frank Murphy, of England, feather weights, a new match was arranged between those pugil ists for tbe championship of the world, the fight to be to a finish with skin gloves, between the 15th and 20th of March, at a place within 250 miles of Chicago, tor $1,000 a side.

Comiskey is one of tbe best base runners in the Association, still he win take no chances of injuring himself unless it is absolutely neces sary. He is not out for a base running record, bnt if it comes down to a pinch he is about as sure a man as any in the country. , Ed McKean, the Cleveland short stop, in a recent interview, vindicates Manager Schmelz, of the Cincinnati club, of the charge of med dling with reserved players. He says that Schmelz never offered him $3,800, and that he never told anybody that he did. There are conflicting reports about the amount of money divided among the winners of tbe 'Frisco pedestrian contest. Some re ports say $26,000; others say $10,000. The next report may be that the winner had to make strenous efforts to get his expenses. Delehaxtt has arrived in Philadelphia from Cleveland. He is in the pink of condi tion. He is looking well and weighs 15 pounds less than he did at the end of last season. He says he will make tbe best of the second base men hustle next year, as be is out for tbe stuff. Ja-ke Ktlhain -writes that he intends to go to England and force Jem Smith to make cood his challenge. He says: "I will fight the Englishman in any style, but I know he will not meet me to a finish, so that I will have to be satisfied with 10 or 15 rounds. There is no show for me in the United States, and I wonld sooner drive a street car than be again sub jected to tbe abuse that has been heaped on me of late." President John B. Hat, of the New York club, writes from tbe South to a friend in this clty.that heis fast becoming a well man.

FEEI-EOMKER'S-Fir John C Eckel Answers the Buckeye Governor's Recent letter. MISTAKEN IS THE POLITE TEEM By Which He Characterizs3 the .Version Given bj J. Benson. A DECIDED QUESTION OP YERACITY. Foraker Was Only Too Rarer to be the Leafier of a Blaine Stampede. ' The -Governor of Ohio seems to be in volved in quite a controversy. John O. Eckel, the Chicago reporter, has written an answer to his recent letter. Some inside history of the Chicago Convention is given. His account of the now famous interview differs materially from that of Foraker him self. CrNCnnrATii' February 28. The follow ing is from John 0. Eckel, assistant city editor of the Chicago Times,' and formerly with the Associated Press. It is a reply to Governor Foraker's recent letter to Murat Halstead, editor of the Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette, and is as follows: Governor Forakers letter to Editor M. Hal stead, printed in many papers throughout the country February 27, has been read by me and its contents carefully digested. Coming from so high a dignitary in the affairs of the State of Ohio my surprise cannot be expressed in a more befitting manner than to characterize tbe. letter and Its entirety as a very curious docu ment. Beginning with the statement that he "never had any formal interview with anybody at Chicago," he reviews the then existing con dition of things and in doing so bears out what I telegraphed in my interview of June 23. Just what the Governor means by a formal interview upon great public occasions wonld be of considerable interest to tbe entire newspaper fraternity. Upon the evening referred to I sent my card giving my name and business to his room. I was thereupon invited by him fo calL Informing him at once what I desired to know, be invited me to sit down with him on a sofa, and began his talk as I reported it to the coun try. That was formal enough for me and I thought formal enough for any newspaper man. HIS SECRETS KEPT. That which he asked me not to publish Idid not publish. I kept faith with him throughout until his attacks upon the truthfulness of the interview not alone in Ohio from the rostrum, but also in a Chicago newspaper. Governor Foraker is very badly mistaken when he uses this language: "The statement that I denied it is not true. I never referred to It, and. In fact, never thought of it from that moment unti) now, when it has been reproduced." On Monday the day on which General Har rison was nominated there appeared in tbe Chicago Jribune my interview reproduced from some out-of-town paper, and following it was the first quasi denial of what I bad written. The entire matter was under a display head with' this caption: "Did Governor Foraker Say It!" The'THoune interview concerning my dispatch was then erven as follows: "Gov ernor Foraker was asked last night if, he made the statements contained in the interview." 'There is a great deal of misstatement and ex aggeration in it,' he replied. The room was crowded at the time, and I could answer tbe reporter's questions only at intervals and briefly. He has written up in his own language and not mine. Tbe facts of the situation at tbe time were just these: The delegation had at tbe beginning requested me to cast a solid vote for Sherman until such time as they should demand a polL Before going to tbe convention they notified me that they should expect to be polled before I an nounced Ohio's vote. Under these circum stances, I told the reporter simply that a BLAINE STAMPEDE was on the programme; that by the time Ohio was reached it would be apparent whether the programme was to be carried out, and that if the stampede occurred there were Blaine men in the delegation who wonld join in the rush. That was the sum and substance of the inter views, tbe rest is embellishment. As to McKlnley I simply said, casually; that I did not know whether he was in business for himself yet or not. The interview, however, is of no importance now, for the reason that "the situa tion has changed, and Mr. Sherman's chances have greatly improved. Ohio will cast her vote solid for him and his forces all along the line will stand firm. 'With the understanding that the final Issue is between Blaine and Sherman, or the man Sherman shall name?' 'No, sir; we are looking no further ahead than Sherman, and nowhere else. Beside, Mr. Sher man cannot transfer the votes of the Ohio dele gation. They are not that kind.' " In view of statements in his letter Governor Foraker will find many matters in the Tribune's interview which must nowappear alittle incon sistent. How tbe room could be crowded with only five persons in it wonld seem to requirean explanation. Tbe statement that 'I could answer tbe reporters' questions only at inter vals briefly,' is also open to comment, for the fact is that Governor Foraker and myself sat off in one comer of the room together, away from other persons. There was but one inter ruption during the entire time, and that was when a gentleman entered wbo, I bellevs, was his private secretary. EAST TO HTTERVIEW. ' The interview was given without restraint, and it was the easiest one obtained by me dur ing the convention. Everything was Blaine at the time and the Governor was no exception to the rule of those who wished to lead the proces sion for the Maine man. Pleading guilty to the crushinsaccusationtbat Mr. Eckels' interview was written by him after he had talked with me,' I submit that the worthy Governor had f nil knowledge of tbe fact that he had been in terviewed. He considered it an interview to all intents and purposes. After I had obtained it and was writing up I was approached by several newsnaper men and asked to furnish them with the balance of what I had obtained, I declined, but they all answered by saying that Governor Foraker bad refused tbem any Information for the reason that he had talked, fully to the Associated Press. But by far the best opportunity enjoyed by the Governor to repudiate in its entirety or in the minutest detail the interview was when I paid him a second visit on the evening follow ine. He' received me' very graciously, and in order to be alone with me, there being several others In his reception parlor, he invited me into his bedroom. I bad heard that he was trying to throw discredit upon the interview, from a delegate at large of the Ohio delegation, and I called upon him to give him all possible opportunity for any correction or denials. Handing him a paper I asked him to enumerate the errors which may have crept in his statement as printed. He mentioned a minor matter concerning Major McKlnley, and I at once offered to telegraph correction, but he insisted that it was too trifling a matter. He then told me he was well satisfied with the interview. On this same evening he furnished a Tribune reporter with the interview I hare above quoted. . John C. Eckels. A TRUST IN PE0SPECT.

Deroulede on the arrival of the police, having telephoned for the Boulangist deputies, both were provisionally liberated. Ten warrants were issued. No warrant was issned for Laguerre. It is believed that' the suppression of .the Patriotic League is the first of a serles'of stepsfto suppress Boulangerism, and a pretext to Discover the organization of the League. The police to-day made- three searches for papers belonging to the League. M. Deroulede and Deputies Laguerre and Blcb ard. members of the organization, are charged with having by hostile acts, such as the signing of the Atchlnoff manifesto, exposed the State to the danger of a declaration of war.

Hubbard reminded the Ministry that the facts of the case were liable to be distorted, and political capital made ont of tbe blood spilled. M. Spoiler said that the incident was to be regretted.

A stormy scene was enacted in the Lower Honseof the Hungarian Diet to-day, the re sumption of the debate on the army giving rise to a violent demonstration by the -members of the opposition. After several members had presented their objections to the bill Prime Minister von Tisza rose and attempted to re ply, but his voice was drowned by a torrent of hisses and groans from the opposition. The disturbance was continued for several minutes in spite of the repeated protests of the Presi dent of tbe Chamber. When order bad been in ameasnre restored the Prime Minister began to reply. He charged the opponents of the bill with attempting to drag the crown into tbe strnggle,- and declared that the youths of Hungary had been led astray by false issues. Durine his remarks "Herr von Tisza was' re peatedly interrupted by the opposition, and finally, amtd a great uproar, the debate was adjourned. Prime Minister Crlspl Resigns. Prime Minister Crispl bas resigned. He was to have spoken in the Italian Chamber of Dep uties to-day, but after a Cabinet council he de cided upon resigning in order to avoid the in evitable hostile vote on the Government meas ure providing for additional taxation. Such a vote wonld have rendered it difficult for Signor Crispl to form a new Cabinet. It is ex pected that King Humbert will ask Signor Crispl to reform tbe Ministry, and that several of tbe present members of the Cabinet will be retained, while the others will be chosen from the party of the Left.

' Wonderful Proficiency of a Tonne Colored Gentleman Who Took That Course The Profession Staggered. "Where there's a will there is a way, faint heart ne'er won fair lady, perieveranlia om nia vincet, epluribusunumeringobragh, etc., are maxims trite, hoary with age and rheu matic, and have lost their potency except when exemplified by love's young dream or the struggles of a young man to mount fame's legal ladder under adverse circum stances. About four years ago a. young colored gentleman named Reed called at the office of alprominent attorney in. this city, and asked to be taken into the office as a student of that somewhat inexact science "whose seatis the bosom of God.' " After a cursory .exam ination of the young man's powers and at tainments the lawyer advised him to build a concrete foundation for.future success by a study of the American Encyclopedia and then apply as a candidate for preliminary examination. The young man went away and the lawyer, in course of time, forgot the matter until a few days since, when his recollection was refreshed by the appearance of the young man, who announced that he, had conquered the encyclopedia and was ready to be ex amined on it The lawyer was, in a measure, paralyzed for a time, but finally recovered and asked the candidate for legal renown some questions, which showed -that he had really conquered that immense mass of general knowledge from A to Zymosis, and all the appendices thereunto appertain ing. The lawyer was amazed, and scarce knew for a time what further to advise. Finally he thought of the young law students' Moot Court Association, and suggested to the young man that, if he were to familiar ize himself with the Madison papers and the Congreuional Globe to date,. he might, with every prospect of success, demand the right to membership, and, if refused, apply "The rule in Splane's case" by application to the Supreme Court of the organization. The applicant heaved a 40-horse-nower sigh as, by degrees, the heft of the addenda was explained to him: but, nothing daunted, he announced his determination. to get there if it took all of several summers, and winters, too. Tbe lawyer quiets his conscience with the reflection that, whether or not the student finallv succeed in climbing to the fop of the legal ladder, he will at least have the satis faction of knowing that he is the best posted man in general knowledge in the United States, and will be a regular encyclopedia of knowledge in law, art, science, govern ment and general literature. Some years ago a young manbent on achieving legal distinction, received some what similar advice, being recommended as a preliminary to the study of Bishop on Criminal Law, to read up Capital Punish ment in the Encyclopedia. This man hadn t.the sticktoitivenessof Mr. Beed,and, after wadine through some 25 pages on "Capital," before he arrived at "Capital Punishment," and finding it rather heavy, threw up the job in disgust Massachusetts Owns Them.

The most informal callers of the day upon the Harrison family have been Mrs. Morton and her husband and daughters. They have run over from their rooms to those, of the President-elect several times during the day and evening, although much' of Mrs, Mor ton's time is occupied with receiving call ers upon her own account, and Mr. Morton has been kept nearly as busy with confer ences as the President-elect himself. For Mr. Morton, however, these conferenpes are more pleasure than business, concerning chiefly the manner in which he can best help his friends, and being- unaccompanied by any great personal responsibility. The clock that ticks off for General Har rison the rapidly diminishing seconds which separate him from the time when he must take a plunge into what will probably be a lake of political fire and brimstone v'for Mr. Morton merely marks tjje gradual lessening of the time that must intervene before he can install himself and his handsome wife in a place of distinguished honor -and com fortable dignity, and dispense a hospitality which is as charming to those who give as to those who receive. There is less distinction and less salary Attached to the office of Vice President than that of President, but.if the question of swapping piaceswere put Deiore tne two -Lmen to-nicht. it is au even chance that Gen- i -rr ' U tr J t.- J erai xiarrison wuuiu uuer a goou iiouse auu lot to boot if Mr. Morton would make the, trade, and that Mr. Morton would refuse the offer. GETTING SOLID WITH THE GANG. tLlge, Son-In-Lnw RIcKee and Rrfsseu Loaf Along Newspaper Row. In Private Secretary Halford's quarters, there has been more business than ever, to day. Curing the seclusion of the General in conferences he has been compelled to re ceive most of the political callers, and he has besides endeavored to make some ap proach to keeping up with the correspon dence that pours in mercilessly. He took time during the afternoon, however, to take a walk along Newspaper Bow, calling at the offices of most of the leading papers, renewing old acquaintances and forming new ones. He seems very anxious to make a good impression at the start, and has been much worried over the criticisms aroused by his notice that he would receive news paper men at certain hours of the day. Of fense was taken at this by some of the news paper men, but the majority 'of them gave it the liberal interpretation that the lan guage permitted, and decided that for a Pri vate Secretary to say that he would see them at a certain time did not mean that he would refuse to see them at' any other time. And this somewhat free interpretation seems justified from the fact that newspaper men have been dropping in at 'all sorts of odd times all day to-day, and have been re ceived with uniform courtesy. Son-in-law McKee accompanied the Pri vate Secretary during his stroll among the newspaper men and proved himself an agree ble fellow for one that has never had any thing to do with a newspaper. Eussell Harrison, since he got control of the Republican organ in Helena, Mont, has been making himself very much at home with newspaper, men, and if he keeps on has he has begun wiirbe very popular, for a great man's son, before the administra tion is over. ALL HATE TO CALL ON" HIM. Politicians of Roth Parties-Drop In Side by fildo WIlhBUhopij Among General 'Harrison's many callers L to-day were Speaker Carlisle anS Chief Jus tice Fuller, who inquired as to the ,Presii dent-elect's wishes in -regard to the. cere monies on the stand the day of inauguration. Other ."visitors were- ex Senator 'errJi General Schenck, Congressman Guenther, of. Wisconsin; Murat Halstead, of tbe Cincinnati Commer cial Gazette; General Swaim, of the Army; ex-Congressman Van Voorhis, of New York; Governor Cheney, of Hew Hampshire, and H. L. Swords, liergeant-at-Arms of the Re publican Executive Committee. Two callers who attracted much' attention in this political gathering, were Bishops Newman and Hurst, ,of the Methodist Church. A SMALL BOOK WOULD .DO. Th,e List of Callers Who Want Nothing Is n Terr Long One. In the course of a conversation, one of the Illinois delegation, to-day, 'with' a view to relieving any apprehension the President elect may have been under and to demon strate the informality oif the visit, remarked: "General, I have nothing- to ask for." Then, with a glance into futurity, he hastily added, "That is, just now:" General Harrison smilingly remarked: "I am thinking of opening a book in which members and other interested persons may execute a release in advance." "Well, General." said Mr. Cannon, "all I have got to say is that a very little book will last clear through your administra tion." i HALFOKD HAS A MASOOT." The Newspaper Men Give Him a Gilded Horseshoe nnd Ho Cleans House. Private Secretary Hal ford has received 1ms mascot It is a gilded horseshoe, and rests upon the mantle in the office room with a conspicuous label saying that it is the gift of several handsome newspaper men. The quarters of the Private Secretary and stenog raphers were enlarged to-day by.the removal of the bed and other furniture from the room in the rear of the one thev have been occupying, and the putting there of desks and typewriters. The change was a bright idea of Mrs. Harrison's. She spent some time in the office this morning, chatting with Mr. Hal ford and the others, and, suggesting im provements in the arrangement ot things.

' Blaine's Name Is Enthusiastically Cheered . at Baltimore 300 Delegates In Attendance A Plea for t JSetr Mexico. Baitimore, February 28. When Presi dent James P. Foster called the convention of the National League of Republican clubs to order shortly after noon to-day, there was a goodly attendance of delegates and Ford's Opera, House presented a gala appearance. The house was elaborately decorated with the national colors and the fronts of the two galleries -were hung with gonfallons, each bearing the coat of arms of a State, those of the newly admitted States being conspicuous. The galleries and boxe were filled with lookers-on while the main floor was reserved for delegates and alter nates. x An allusion to Hon. James G. Blaine as next Secretary of State was greeted with an outburst of enthusiastic cheering. Presi dent Foster thanked the. league for its con siderate treatment of him during Mb term of office, and said that he could lay down the gavel feeling confident that the league was about to enter a glorious career of use fulness. The roll call was answered by nearly 200 delegates. The delegates from North Dakota, South Dakota, Washington and New Mexico were greeted with ap plause as they arose to answer the r names. To-night there was a largely attended mass meeting at Oratorio Hall. Most of the prominent delegates to the convention were present. There was a speech by Hon. A. L. Morrison, ot New Mexico, who de fended that Territory from the charge of be ing unfit to .become a State, that has been made by some newspapers and crotested against his people beine classed with the Mormon population of Utah. He said that New Mexico would soon ask admission to the sisterhood of States and pledged himself to it that when she was in she would come in as a Republican State and be a credit to America. Hon. A. J. Lester, of Illinois, and Judge John M. Thurston, of Nebraska, also spoke. A NATIONAL 'BANKRUPTCY LAW Demanded by a Meeting of Business Inter ests Held at St. Louis. tSrECIAL TELEGRAM TO TEX DISPATCH. St Lottis, February ' 28. The business interests of a large section of the United States were represented to-day by 75 dele gates who met at the Southern Hotel to dis cuss the bankruptcy question. New York and Boston were strongly represented, the feeling among the jobbers in the Fast being- unanimously in favor of a national bankruptcy law. Mr. J. B., Goddard, of St. Louis, President of the Wholesale Grocers' Association, outlined the object of the commercial bodies of the West, which had long suffered from the evils of the present bankruptcy sviftem. The Wholesale Gro cers' Association of St. Louis sent out an. inquiry to the commercial organizations in the leading centers of trade, and fonnd the sentiment unanimously in favor of a na tional bankruptcy law. Then the conven tion was called. "We want a law," said Mr. Goddard, "that will provide for the collection and fair distribution of the assetsof an insolvent debtor; we want a law that will have this done quickly and economically; that will punish fraud and give honest, but unfor tunate debtors a chance to. resume, business. We want a law that will allow all the cred itors to share proportionately in the assets of an insolvent. We want the little fellow to have as good a show as tbe big fellow, and not be frozen out as he is now. You, gen tlemen, are here to formulate such a bill, which will be' presented to the next Con gress." Colonel J. L. Torrey. of St. Louis, was made permanent chairman. Committees on rules and bills were appointed and are now at work. Copies ot a bankrupt bill, drawn by Congressman-elect Nathan Frank, were distributed among the delegates. Mr. Frank will introduce his bill in the next Congress. RANDALL AND THE G. A. E. The Ex-Speaker to be Initiated at Waah- lagtoa oa Monday. rSFXCni. TELEQIIJLM TO THE DISPATCH. Philadelphia, February 28. One of the most interesting incidents of the in auguration day celebration aWashington Monday will be the initiation into tbe Grand Army of the Republic of ex-Speaker Samuel J. Randall, who will be mustered in under tin most flattering circumstances that ever surrounded the entrance of a re cruit into the order. By special dispensa tion a provisional post representing George G. Meade Post No. 1, of Philadelphia, will be organized. . The officers of this provisional post will be as follows: Com mander, Hon. William Warner, Kansas City, Mo., Commander-in-Chief of the Grand Army; Senior Vice Commander, Thomas J. Stewart, Department Com mander of Tennessee; Junior Vice Com mander, W. Wayne Vodges, Commander of George Meade Post No. 1; Officer of the Day, Junior Vice Commander L. P. Lan ger, of Post'l; Officer of the Guard, C. F. Crane; Chaplain, G. Harry.Davis; Sur geon, R. Wilkie Martin. Although a member of Congress during, the war for the Union, Mr. Randall found two occasions to tender, his services in the field. In the outbreakof the war he was a Sergeant of a Philadelohia city troop, and he served in the Cumberland Valley in' Pennsylvania, Maryland, and in the vicinity of Bunker Hill, Martinsburg, Harper's Ferry and Charlestown, W. Va. During the Confederate' advance northward into Maryland and Pennsylvania in 1863, Randall was the Captain of the troop, and served during the emergency. He was Provost Marshal of Columbia, Pa., for a time during the period of invasion. BLAMED ON THE "WHITE CAPS. The Attempted Assassination of a Promi nent Minneapolis Editor. Minneapolis, Minn., February 28. The "White Caps" attempted to murder J. P. Smith, editor of the Furniture News, of this city, to-night. Mr. Smith has been in receipt of 14 letters, all received since Jan uary 27, and all signed ('While Caps," with the usual skull and cross bones, and all1 breathing threats of summary vengeance unless he should leave the city immediate ly. The last letter was received last night, and threatened a, dose of cold lead unless its demands were com plied with forthwith. Mr. Smith gave no heed to the letters. This evenintr. as he i was sitting in his office, the door was opeded andwearing a broad-brimmed slouch pulled well down over his eyes. Ithout a word he presented a pistol at Smith's head and fired. The bullet ed Smith's ear, but being of but 23- caliBerwas flattened against his skull. The Vwould-be murderer fled, and no trace t him has as yet been fonnd. The woanded man annarentlv exneriences little troyble from the wound, bnt the doc tors say mat a snocc may possioiy nave been inflicted upon the base of the brain, which will prove serious.

Continued from First Page. biased review of each of the counties it was deemed best not! to rely upon resident cor respondents or upon communication with politicians in the different counties. The commissioner detailed from this office for the work accomplished his task in exactly '40 days. To cover a great State like Penn sylvania, a State the area of which is 44,985 square miles, in that period is a some what extraordinary feat. In going from one count seat to tbe other he traveled nearly 2,500 miles. Redneethis to an average per day, and add to it the in terviewing of a dozen -or more persons in, each town and the writing of two columns regularly every day, ana any newspaper man will appreciate the amount . of labor expended. Tho traveling, and writing en route, was done by both night and dy. In some counties feven in the advanced State ot Pennsylvania) staging and travel by horses was necessary. Tnese letters and dispatches from pur commissioner amount ed in the aggregate to 73 columns, which Is equal to all the space in more than two whole numbers of the eight-page Dis patch. poor detjhjiebe3. It is marvelous what widespread agita tion there is on the issue. Onr commissioner heard the amendment talked of everywhere. On' lailroad trains, especially, the traveling public discuss it, and there the people from other States ask how the State will go. Commercial travelers, (as a rule, are found opposing prohibition. They do not fear a stagnation of business as the resnlt so much as they do the relieving of hotel proprie tors from all compulsion in the matterif caring for the. public. The "drummer" says that under the Brooks law, and under other license laws, tbe granting of liquor, licenses is contingent upon the accommoda tions a hotel or tivern keeper has for the traveling public. If no licenses are to be granted, they say, tbe tavern keeper can go to bed at 9 o oclock if he chooses, and if a traveler knocks at his door an hour later, there is nothing to hinder him from ad vising the belated drummer, from an up stair window, to go to Gehenna or some other lodging place until morning, as he cannot be. disturbed. Several traveling salesmen declare that has already been their experience in some of the country towns of Pennsylvania now under prohibitory law. TAKE ONE. In every railroad station, and at every countrv crossroads throughout the State boxes nave been nailed up. bearing the in scription, "Take one." They contain tracts and all sorts of prohibition literature sent out by the temperance societies.' The Good Templars, who have their headquarters in this city, have distributed among these boxes 'nearly 200,000 of these documents. Already the W. C. T. U. of the State, with its headquarters in this city also, have sent throughout the length and breadth of the Commonwealth 10,000 copies of "The Dev il's Toboggan Slide," 500 copies of "The Overawing Curse"' and 50,000 copies of "Thirty Reasons Why." - Liquor men too are busily engaged pre paring tracts for circulation at 'every rail road depot, in every country store, and on all the city streets. These will contain sta tistics about the amount of taxable property which would be swept out of existence and the vast monetary loss thev would suffer as business men if the amendment is adopted. They are also preparing to make all the capital possible out of any want of harmony, or any weakness on the part of temperance organizations, for, as one of their number said, if this amendment is to be killed it will" be by the temperance people them selves as much as by us. What he meant was that a great many drinking men were too firmly fixed in their intention to vote for the issue to be persuaded otherwise. MILLIONS A.T STAKE. As to the figures on their loss the liquor men's tracts will show that distilleries in this district- (Twenty-third Internal Rev enue), use annually 1,472,000 bn:hels of rye, which at 75 cents by the bushel, amounts to f 1,104,000. About 328,000 bushels of barley or malt is also used, which costs $1 per bnshel. To hold the whisky 140,000 barrels" are either made or purchased by the distiller each year, and -cost $330,000. The whisky, when new, is worth. f25 per barrel, ana the total value amounts to $3,500,000, and the Government fax on this at 540 per barrel, aggregates ,$5,600,000. Their plants are worth several millions more in this district. Everywhere the tremendous importance of tbe struggle is recognized. That the' peo ple of the second greatest State in the union; have been called upon to exercise their sovereignty and decide the liquor question purely on its merits, is to the minds of thousands of thinking people, second in its grave character only to the question of abolition in ante-bellum days. IMPORTANCE OF THE ISS.TTE. In his travels The Dispatch commis sioner was frequently-reminded that the adoption of prohibitory amendments in Iowa, Maine or Kansas was nothing to what the victory or defeat of the movement will be here. Those three States put together didnothavf the population, nnder the last census, which Pennsylvania alone had. The Keystone State's population then was 4,282, 891, and is. now considerably over 5,000,000. We have 1,000,000 voters who will vote upon this question. The population of Iowa was 1,624,635; of Maine. 648,936; of Kansas, 996,096. And to crown the importance of the issue, it will affect the second, city of the United States. Philadelphia and Allegheny counties were not included in The Dispatch's special canvass, because nothing definite can be stated about the three large cities of the State until the fight develops. However, it is of course conceded that both the coun ties will be against tbe amendment, and are therefore put in the table above to make the 67 counties complete. -y : DEFIED BY- COLOMBIA. Am Opportunity for Mr. Blaine to 'Enforce His Vigorous Policy. Boston, February 28. Mr. Blaine will find a Sonth American tangle awaiting bim when be steps into Mr. Bayard's shoes. It is a small tangle, but nevertheless one in which Boston bas a-considerable interest. The schooner Mattie A. Franklin left Boston January 8 for Asplnwall with a largo of fee. She arrived there January 25, and after dis charging 30 tons ot ice was prohibited from landing tbe remainder 'of her cargo by tbe Colombian Government, and was put under police surveillance from February 1 until leaving port on or about February 15. The Colombian Government had advertised for bids for the exclusive right to sell ice in Colom bia, and tbe right was awarded to a borne com pany at $15,000 a year. As Asplnwall Is a free port and tbe action of tbe Colombian Govern ment is deemed a violation ot tbe treaty with tbe, United States, the Boston Ice Company did not bid for tbe monopoly. The company appealed to the United States State Department, and Secretary Bayard bas notified tbe Colombian Government that its action is deemed by tbe United States a viola tion of rights guaranteed by treaty. Mr. Cook; the manager of tbe Boston Ice Company, was arrested forgiving away a small piece of ice, and was put In prison, bnt released on tbe de mand of tbe'United States Consul.
