Op inions About the Plan of Presi dent Von der Ahe. WORLD'S CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES. Eilrain's Offer to Ajain Meet John L. Sullivan in Battle. STAKSBURrS CHALLENGE TO SEARLE. Most assuredly all of us who are in any way interested in baseball affairs are in a pretty-mix. "What this magnate bas said and what that player has declared and what somebody else has stated has put us into a position just as bewildering as were the muddles in which Lord Dundreary found himself occasionally. That notable charac ter really became uncertain about his own identity, and according to stories circulated every day it seems hard to determine whether or not the Brothernood and League will play ball in America or in some planet far away from the one on which we now are. However, with a little patience we can penetrate the will-o'-the-wisp stories and get down to something solid in this famous Brotherhood and League controversy. There is a certain amount of reality in the stand the Brotherhood has taken against the League, but to what extent it (roes is wbat seems to pnzzle everybody. What is real and what is sham is what bothers the outer world that is, that part or the world that is not fortunate enough to be on the inside of the Brotherhood's move ments. Bat two very important personages have opened tbelr mouths this week and de clared themselves. They are such important people as John II. "Ward and Fred Pfeffer, both authors, by the way. Now let it be understood tbat the statements of these two bright partic ular stars, moons, snns or anything else they may be" termed, knocks all the wild stories about the Brotherhood completely out; in fact, pnlTerize them. Mr. Ward very definitely in forms us that the Brotherhood bas decided on no plan yet, and that if it does the capital' needed will be subscribed by outside parties. Ff effer has repeated this statement and added another to it of very great importance. He plainly declares tbat if the grievances of the players are removed that will settle the whale dispute, and he adds that until the meeting of the Brotherhood is held next month, nobody can tell what tbe Brotherhood intends to do. Now this is a very wise course to pursue, and readers of Tee Dis patch will note that I have been urging this course for a very long time. A few weeks ago, when Tim Keefe intimated that a meeting of the Brotherhood would be held next month. I then stated the advisability of the players de nning their grievance and presenting a state ment to the League. I now feel confident that this will be the course pursued, and if it is, good will probably result At any rate, the public utterances of Ward, Pfeffer and Keefe all mean and in a very definite way that the Brotherbood bas not yet decided on any partic ular plan of action, and will not do so until after theirown meeting and tbat of the League. lam inclined to believe these gentlemen, but I have another side to present, and it is somewhat startling. w Important If Trne. A few days ago I learned through a friend that at a Brotherhood meeting of the local play ers it was definitely decided to have a new club here next year entirely distinct from that of the National League. Now, before going into the details of tbe information received, let me frankly state that I withhold the name of my informer, and I refuse to say whether he is a player or anything else. However, he is in a position to know exactly all about the matter from beginning to end. Well, he assured me that the players bad determined to leave tbe League'club and join another in this city next season. He further stated that two of the players had been deputized to confer with one otthe most-important officials in Pittsburg City Hall on tbe question and solicit financial aid. A few days ago I went to this official and asked him what he knew about the Brother hood. The question undoubtedly startled him, and although usually very affable he showed his temper at once, and very enrtly replied: "I know nothing about it." Now this was Mayor McCallin. Subsequently I met my informant and told him of the Mayor's de .ial of being connected with or knowing anything about the Brotherhood, ily informant stuck to his original statement, and as I have already stated, if ever mortal should know whereof be speaks my informant ought to be that man. He emphatically stated that tbe city official in question had promised plenty of support to a new club. However, the story lost consider able of its charm and sensation when tbe whole thine was denied by Mayor McCallin. I don't want anybody to infer from what I say that tbe Mayor is in any way connected with tbe Broth erhood intentions. Of course, when he says ho is not. that would seeminirlv end it hut , fact that an authority that would seem to leave not even the smallest vestige of a doubt savs different. What and who are we to believe? " 1 mention the case because it is like so many others that have taken place in other cities. Atthe early stages of tbeBrotberhood romance the names of prominent business men in vari ous cities were connected with the alleged new organization. One by one these gentlemen emphatically denied all connections with the scheme. However, 1 do believe this: That in all the League cities players have been at work canvassing to find out what solid and reliablo support can be had for a club should a new organization be determined on. That this has been the case in this city is quite true, and that tolerably good support bas been promised is also true. But this is as far as matters have gone. At the Brotherhood meeting, which is to be held on November 4, each representative will present a statement as to the prospects of launching and sustaining a club in this city. It altogether depends on tbe solidity of the support promised as to whether or not the idea of any new organization will De favored. Manager Hanlon said to me tbe other day: "If wo start an organization it will be a success," pltinly intimating that the above plan ofactinn is the correct one. At present One player of one city knows little or nothing about the prospects of support at another city, and it is only by meeting ana proceeding as above indicated that a correct and comprehen sive idea can be obtained about the condition of affairs. This then ought to settle all the lairy storiesnntil after the meeting referred to. The Reserve Rule. One of the most interesting features of tbe basebaHcontroversy during the week has been the League's threat to enforce the reserve rule against all tbe players who signed a contract tor 1889. When this intention of the League magnates was first made known it was gener ally considered a very weak attempt to make a very tic "bluff." However, the more it is dis cussed by legal authorities its importance and power become -very much clearer. During the last few days, it is a fact that many players' nave oegun to turns: mai mere is sometning In it after all. I don't profess to know law, but I am free to admit tbat to me tbe contract of 1S89, that which was signed by the players last winter and spring, is very easy to understand. Of course there may be legal leatures buried in it tbat only legal men can find, but I do argue tbat the contract on the face of it means that each player who signed it to play in 18S9 agreed also to play for tbe same club in 189a The players think tbey have found a rock of safety in the definition of the word "reserve." They claim that it means nothing more nor less tban that each player who signs it must play with no other League club or club governed by the national 'agreement- than tbe clnb which siens him by the contract named. There may be consolation in this, but X am afraid tbat it will be like a drowning man grasping at a straw. The contract, and par ticularly section 18, does not mention nor de fine with whom the players shall not play, bat It does say with whom he shall play. It may be trne that in tbe past plavers left the League or Association and joined other organizations that Here not governed by the national agree ment; it may also be true that these players were on the reserve lists of some League or Association club, bat because the clnb that had them reserved did not institute legal pro ceedings against them it does not follow that there was no way of doing it. Because a man tails to prosecute in one case, that Is no reason why the law should bo inoperative in another. Instances of defying the reserve rule in the past bavo been exceptions, but at present it threatens to be wholesale. The plain English of tbe reserve clause of the contract is that the club signing the player has first claim on the services of tbe. player for tbe season next ensuing the one in which be signs. This claim taxes precedence ol the claim or anybody else and there is no line drawn or special reference to any particular organization. The player signs with the particular club and not with the League. If an iron firm, a member of an em ployers' association, were to contract with a workman to work for the firm for the year and the next ensning, would there bo any reason to suppose that that contract only referred to iron firms in that association T It seems safe to say that a court would construn tbe conti act to mean something quite different and that tbe contract secured the workman's services for the firm against all other iron firms in tbe country. If tbis principle would hold good m the case of one man it would hold good In tbe case of all workmen. It seems to me, therefore, that the ball players who signed tbe contract in question are similar to the workman in the supposed case. However, it is not likely that matters will go so lar as a court of justice. Should a conflict between the Na tional League and the players be carried to court an injury will be done the national game which years may not repair. Certainty base ball is extraordinarily popular among American peoole at present but public or popular feeling is soon turned. The spirit of hero worship, as Carlyle called it, is extremely fickle and uncer tain. We may make kraes to-day and butcher them to-morrow. It is, therefore, possible for those most interested in the national game to act in a way that will poison the public mind against it. Will It Pay f But let us see what players have to gain by deserting the League and joining any new organization. I referred to this matter two or three weeks ago, but since then Mr. Ward has told us that if the BrotberbOod joins a new organization it will be for other capitalists, and Mr. Ward argues that these other capitalists are just as good business men and just as well able to manaire a baseball organization as those at present at the bead of tbe National League. Well, it is something to know from an au thority like Mr. Ward, that even if tbe players join a new organization they will simply be transferring their services lrom one set of capitalists to another. Now I assume, and I think bnman nature saysTm correct, tbat these capitalists, or to be definite, these "other capi talists," will not throw in their tens of thou sands of dollars merely for the fun of it and be cause of an extraordinary philanthropic love for the ballplayers. I don't anticipate any such noble and self-sacrificine motives will actuate these "other capitalists." If they go into tbe alleged or proposed scheme depend upon it that it will be for tbe money tbere is in it. We may safely come to this conclusion. If this be the case, then will anybody tell me how these "other capitalists" can make more money in baseball than are tbe magnates of the League? If more money cannot be made, how in the name of common sense are tbe players going jo get an increase of wages or salary? There is an old Scotch adage which is very ap propriate here. It isr "We better keep to tbe dell we ken than gang to the deil we dinna ken." But I argue that the chances of the players improving their condition by a whole sale bolt to a new organization are exceedingly remote. Suppose for a moment tbat a new organization was started, and that it put clubs into Pittsburg, Chicago, Washington, Cleve land, Indianapolis and other places. We never for a moment think that the Na tional jeague would not be represented at these places also. Most certainly the National League would be tbere and the two clubs in each city would become great finan cial failures. Under these circumstances who would have the best of it? Why, the older or ganization, of course. There would be such demand for money from the "other capitalists" during tbe season that they would be likely to soon see tbe wisdom of confining themselves to the business tbat bad earned them tbe money iu waste on uaseoau. due wnen we reduce tbis matter to a question ot every day life we will at once ask ourselves the qnestion: Are the ball players a down-trodden and oppressed lot of poor individuals? If the question could be answered fairly in tbe affirmative tbe pub lic would, indeed, not be slow to aid them toward improving their condition. But if we ex amine the condition of things I think we'll find tbat ball players as a rule are among tbe best Eaid class of performers or workers tbat we ave. Dozens of them have from $2,000 to $3,000 for seven months' work, and halt of their board paid. Many more have from $3,000 to $4,000for tbe same period. Now, how many men are tbere in tbis country who have gone through a course of education ranging from when they were 5 years of age until- they were 21 years old, and who have nothing like $3,000 for an entire year? I don't ask these questions or make any of these statements to in any way disparage tbe efforts of ball players to obtain higher salaries; I like to see them get all tbey can; but what I mean to say is that players are not tbe victims of oppression and poverty tbat many people would have us be lieve. True, they are engaged under conditions which, in some respects, cannot be defended, but these can, and I think will, be remedied. It has, however, been proven that no club can keep a player on the reserve list for a lifetime, as has been generally believed. Good lawyers tell us that all tbat can be done under tbe League contract is to keep a player reserved for the season next ensuing that in which he signs. This definition, then, removes a very strong objection. Ton Der Ahe'a Scheme. I dare say few people who have been interest ed in baseball during tbe last few years will be surprised to learn of tbe alleged intentions of Von der Ahe and President Spalding. The world has been told that these two shining lights of the baseball world have resolved to consolidate tbe American Association and the National League, and make one big organiza tion out of it. Some of the clubs in both the present organizations are to be discarded, and anew league of 10 or 12 clubs formed. The great object of this consolidating ot forces is to fight the Brotherhood. I need not remind Dis patch readers of the fact that the scheme is a very old one. The idea has been preacbed, and ably at that, by many writers for many seasons. It need, therefore, be no surprise to the patrons of tbe national game to see the scheme make its annual appearance. Probably a more favorable time for its discussion conid wot be than the present. There is much com mon sense in a scneme or plan such as it is, and many very sensible baseball writers and authorities are of opinion that a consolidation will come sooner or later. I do not intend to discus the merits or demerits of this plan of organizational present, because I am strongly inclined to tbe opinion tbat it will not be adopted for some time to come, if ever it is adopted. Doubtless the disruptions in the As sociation and tbe apparent difficulties sur rounding tbe League would cause many clubs to indorse the notion at present were it to be put to a vote, but it would seem unreasonable to expect that any such scheme would be adopted until the League players had made an open revolt It seems to me that a step of this kind will be averted, and that after all the smoke of buckshot tiring is cleared away, we'll find ourselves next year with the League and Association plodding Jon as usual. Whatever conclusion Messrs. Spalding and Von der Ahe may have come to, the fact remains that the generalmeeting of everybody directly interested will have to finally pro nounce on tbe to-be or not-to-be of tbe consoli dation. However, it would seem that if such a move were to take place the Brotherbood players, ir tbey formed a new organization, would be considerably injured. The best of the Association players, together with tbe best that could be secured elsewhere, would make an attractive organization, and the immense amount of money at command would make it a deadly opponent to all rivals. But what about the Association playcr? Would they keep in line? Here is a.very important ques tion. If th?y are willing to act contrary to the desires of the Brotherhood members I fearthat tbe efforts of the latter will be a complete fail ure. It is the players of the Association tbat tbe Brotherhood has to fear probably more than the League magnates. Tbe World's Championship. The contest between the Brooklyn and New York clubs for the world's championship. is at present more exciting than the vast majority of people ever anticipated it would be. Already! ine xtrooiuyns nave securea more victories tban the most ardent admirers of tbe League ex pected they would get during the entire series. I am free to confess that the Brooklyns are further ahead at this stage of the struggle than I expected tbein to be, but at tbe same time I enforce the argument tbat a combination of tbe most fortunate, not to say questionable, circumstances has placed them where tbey. are. Nobody can reasonably say that pood ball nlav. mg has gained them tbeir victories. Certainly the New Yorks have not played as tbey can play; if tbey bad I question very much whether or not tbe Brooklyns wculd have had more than one victory to their credit now. It still seems a certainty for tho New York?, providing they can keep their best form up. It is a pity, however, tbat so much ill-feeling has been en gendered during the tames. Of course both teams are extremely anxious to secure highest honors, but still this anxiety could be dis played without one-tenth of the brawls and quarrels that have characterized the contests so far. - . About the Pnjritlats. The week has not been a busy one for the pugilistic fraternity. There have been two or three encounters of more or less Importance, but they are not worthy of any extended no tice. However, one of the features of the week is the reappearance of Fat Killen before the pnblic I had thougbt that Patrick would re main in obscurity for a season after Ins en counter with McAuliffe. However, he is to tbe front agaln.and writesa friend in Brooklyn that herill be in that city as soon as possible to see his friends. He bas issued a challenge to Joe McAuliffe and all of the other heavyweights, but McAuliffe savs that he is afraid that be will not get a fair show in the" Northwest. Kil len says: "I do not know where a man can get a fairer show than in Straul. He would cer tainly stand a better chance tban I did in his town. Since my return home a lot of tbe North Wisconsin sports have been cracking away at me to meet them in Michigan. Tbe fact of the matter is I could not win a fight with a broaaax in any part of that State. I am ready and willing to meet any and all of them on equal terms, but I won't put myself in the hands of tbe law. Their talk about bare knuckles is all bluff. I stand on the same ground I have here tofore, ready to meet all comers in my class in a glove fight I do not pretend to pay any at tention to tbe cbeap random chaff of Sheedy and others." Now If there ever was any verita ble blowing or bluffing this is a good, sample. Of course I know that Killen would be glad to meet men like McAuliffe in a stage contest with big gloves. Why-ghouldn't he? There is meney in it, lose or vim Killen knows this as well as anybody in the business. It was by big gloves that he became known as Pat Killen. and it was with big gloves that he persuaded tho pnblic he was a great pugilist when he was nothing of tho kind. His reference to unfair treatment at San Francisco must mean that McAuliffe hit him too hard. Kilrnin on Deck. It is somewhat surprising to read a statement emanating from Kilrain to the effect that he is anxious to again face Sullivan with or without gloves. I bad thought that recollections of Mississippi wonld keep Kilrain most earnestly devoted to his boxing school, but I certainly have been wrong. However; it may be that Kilrain Is determined not to allow Sullivan to have more advertisment for his boxing tour than he, Kilrain, gets for his school. However tbis may be, one cannot avoid the conviction that Kilrain's statement does not amount to much. His reference to a fight with Sullivan with bare knuckles is, to say the least all bluff, because Kilrain knows tbat it would be impossible for a bare knuckle figbt between, him and Sullivan to take place in the United States, and they won't leave the country to fight That part of Kilrain's declaration re f errincr to soft gloves is very interestinc. He bas bad two fur trials to prove that he is a ring fighter, and has failed, and if he is a failure in tbat style, goodness only knows bow he would make out with John L. with soft gloves under Queensberry rules. If Kilrain wants to earn a good pile of money let him fight and defeat Slavin, tbe Australian. I venture to say that tbe latter would give tbe Baltimore represen tative all he bargained for and probably a little more. w A Plttsbnrser's Success. It must be gratifying to all Pittsburg patrons of sports to read of the success achieved on the turt by George Smith "Pittsburg Phil" of this city. Probably few young men have risen to prominence in turf circles more rapidly and more honestly than Phil j I may say more honestly. Tbe latest intentions of thj very successf ul young man is to have a racing stable of his own. This means that So far he has enriched himself immensely in his turf speculations. While he bas been doing tbis his actions have been characterized by remark able shrewdness and noteworthy honesty, and whatever his next move may be none of u, I think, will hesitate to wish him well. But there is such a thing as over speculation. Many bright patrons of the turf who have amassed wealth by backing tbe horse of other people have made dismal failures when they became owners them selves. Of course I know some who have only increased their fortunes by becoming owners. The famous "Jack" Hammond is a prominent instance of the latter; but where there is one Hammond there are dozens who collapse. How ever, should Phil get a stable together he will be a worthy addition to the list of race horse owners in tbe country. Stnnsbnrj's Challenge A week or two I mentioned that Searle was not likely to get a match race with anybody for some time except it be with J. Stansbury, his fellow countryman. At the time I was writing that opinion Stansbury must have been making up his mind to have another try with the formidable Searle. Stanbury's ambition is reasonable because ho gave tbe present champion of the world his hardest race. They rowed in July, of last year, over a course of three miles and 330 yards. The speed must have been great for the distance was covered in 19 minutes and 53 seconds. This race really brought Searle into promin ence, as the time is tbe best on record. v7hile it brought Searle to the front it also stamped Stansbury as a good man, and his friends were not at all satisfied with his defeat He has been hard at work since then aiming at re deeming bis defeat so tbat tbere is every rea son to believe tbat his offer to row Searle .or anybody else, either on an English or Aus tralian course for $2,500 a side is genuine. It is reasonable to expect tbat Stansbury bas im proved since his race with Searle on the Parra matta, and if be has, a great" race may be looked for should they row. However, Searle cannot decline tbe challenge without forfeit ing all claim to championship honors. But Stansbury's challenge goes further than Searle. It plainly intimates that tbe challenger is ready to meet anybody this' side of the globe; in other words, I take it to mean tbat he is readv to row O'Connor, Gandaur or Teemer on the Thames. The general opinion is that Stansbury is below the standard of Searle, and if there is any faith in tbis opinion, surely O'Connor, at least, will take up tbe gauntlet The Australians are undoubtedly forcing mat ters in all branches of sport throughout the world. PErKQLE. THE FAST RECORDS. Some Interesting Facta About Speedy Trot ters of This Season. Fast time is one of the most essential ele ments of a trotting meeting, as it is a guarantee of excellence that the most disinterested spec tator appreciates and jots down in nis memory as a pleasant reminiscence. The races may be closely contested and split up in tbe most be wildering manner, still they fail to arouse the electrical burst of applause that follows an un precedented or even a sensational performance. In this respect many of the trotting meetings during the past few years have been palpably weak, for, while they signalized the appearance of many star performers, they failed to come up to tbe free-for-all standard, and left tbat important event a nollow victory for one or two horses each season. Tbe first part ot the present season proved no exception to tbe rule, but after Geno Smith and Harry Wilkes met at Poughkeepsie and Hartford the public looked forward to a re newal of the championship struggles in which Lucy, Goldsmith Maid, Lady Thorn and Amer ican Girl participated. As the season advanced the volume of tbe free-for-all material in creased, and now the. records show tbat six names have been added to the 2:15 list while two that were members of it have reduced the marks that were opposite tbeir names at the beginning of tbe year. This is a slight improve ment on last year's showing in this list, as tbere were also Six adJitions in 1SSS, but no corres ponding reduction of records. Four of the six in last year's group made their records in races, and of the additions this year, Jack, Palo Alto and Nelson also trotted to their marks in the same businesslike man ner. Tbe Pilot Medium gelding was tbe last to enter this select circle, and as his crowning performance, as well as that of his cotem- poraries. is the best of tbe"year, we present the. xouowins taoie, wuicu contains me iractionai time of the miles in which, with the exception of Harry Wilkes, they mane their records: Slf SIS 5 2 a s C' a J.

TXXIPKAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1 New Yoke, October 26. The Giants were again the people to-day, when they de feated the Brooklyns before 3,321 people 11 rnns to 7, thereby taking the lead in the series for the world's championship. It was a bad day for baseball. It had rained'dnr ing the evening, was very threatening dur ing tbe day, and Old Prob said that it wonld rain sure. This affected the attend ance greatly, and most of those who came were prepared to be driven away by rain. The game was played, however, to a finish. At first it looked as if the Grooms would not be in it but tbey rallied in great shape, and made the New Yorkers feel very uncomforta ble for awhile. Tbe hitting of the New Yorks in tbe second inning was simply terrific. Tbey batted Lovett in every direction, and that young man was retired at as early an hour as Manager McGunigle could get him ont of the way. IT 'WAS TOO LATE. Caruthers was then brought in, but the mis chief was already done. "Doc" Bushong caughf welL Tbe fielding was remarkably good on both sides when the wet grounds and weather were taken Into consideration. Crane could not handle tbe slippery ball well, and tbe Brooklyns did not have to depend upon their ability to hit the ball safely to score. They reached bases nine times on balls off Crane and twice off Keefe, who pitched in the last three innings. The Brooklyns failed to make a hit off the latter. Corkbill again did some fine fielding, and Connor, Ward, Richardson and Smith did good work. Ewing did the best batting for bis side, and his example was well followed by bis comnanions. Foutz did the best batting for the Grooms. The spectators ENJOYED THE FUK hugely and cheered both sides to the echo. Dick Johnston and Sam wise saw the game to gether, and there were many baseball stars of greater or lesser magnitnde in tbe crowd. The next game will be played in Brooklyn Monday with Terry and O'Dayasthe pitchers. Rich ardson now leads tbe batting in tbe series for New York with a batting average of .881 Clark leads Brooklyn with an average of .112. Ward and Collins have each stolen five bases in the series. Tbe Brooklyns were more orlessbandicapped at tbe most important point namely, in the box. Terry, who made the best showing against tbe New Yorks, could not be asked to go in again, and Caruthers did not seem able to bold his own satisfactorily against the League men. The choice then was between Lovett and Hughes, and the former was selected. BEMEMBEKED LOVETT. The New Yorks well remembered this young man since last spring, for they had hit him bard at that time and had no fear of being able to hit him now. Just what they did with Lovett is shown by the fact that they pounded out nine runs in the first two innings. The first inning was spent by the New Yorks in getting the range of Lovett's shoots. Tbis had been accomplished when they. started in for,tbeir second turn at the bat, and then they hit the ball. Such a streak of hard hitting is not often seen, and when Richardson wound up the bom bardment with an over-the-fence hit for a home rnn the New York crowd yelled like Indians, while tbe Brooklynites had nothing to say. This, however, was fie end of the heavy bit ting, for liovett settled down somewhat Still when the visitors began to pile up the runs and there was some chance of their winning the game, they wisely TOOK LOVETT OUT of the box and put in Caruthers. There was a marked increase in kicking in this game. The Brooklyns kicked at many decisions, sometinfes justly, but oftener without cause. The field play was much better than' the pitching, although it was not so sharp as on the day be fore. O'Rourke's hit over the center field fence was one of. tbe features of the game. It went over on the north of tbe flag pole, and reliable "Pop" Corkhil), who stood on the top of tbe embankment watched the horse hide sail out of sight and sighed "when will this thing end." As a whole, the game was only satisfactory from a New York point of view. Score: NEWYORKS. E B P A XI BROOK'NS.

He Says the League nnd Association Will Not Consolidnte. ISrECIAL TELXOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.! Washington. October 26. President Young denies that there is any foundation 'for the re report tbat a combination has been formed be tween tbe League and American Association. He says the League was founded upon an eight club basis, and it will hardly depart from tbat idea at this late day. A 10 or 12 league would be unwieldy, and produce too many complica tions; bence he takes no stock in the state ments attributed to Messrs Spalding and Von der Ahe, published in this morning's dis patches. A long letter was received at League head quarters to-day from Mr. Spalding, in which be assures Mr. Young tbat he is in no way re sponsible for many of the alleged interviews with him that have been telegraphed through out the country. He states tbat he bas been credited with giving expression to views that were simply Imaginary on the part ot certain writers, and on tbe other hand his silence has been purposely misconstrued to give color to certain speculations. Although several of the League clubs have commenced to sign players from minor league clubs Mr. Young does not look for any definite movement toward signing the old players until after the November meetings are over. He has not made any reclassifications under the new rule for the reason tbat none of tbe clubs have yet sent their annual affidavits showing the amount of salary paid to tbe various play ers. He insists that the classification is not a dead letter and predicts that It will be main tained in the best interests of the League. ONE FROM PHILADELPHIA. The Quakers Get Into Line With a Brother hood Story. Philadelphia, October 28. There is no cause for doubt about what has been said con cerning the Brotherhood's scheme to run a league among themselves, at least as far as tbe Philadelphia end of it is concerned, for a Prttt reporter walked into an uptown residence last evening where seven of tbe 12 people Interested in the Philadelphia Brotherhood club, were seated preparatory to going into secret session. A reporter learned that there wonld be a meet ing last evening, and from half-past 6 until 8 o'clock the reporter, who was disguised, be cause tbe majority of tie people be expected to meet knew him, recognized every man who- entered. Six of the seven are prominent in business circles, and no one of them is worth less tbat $75,000. Tbe seventh man was Fog arty, of tho Phllauelphia Clnb. Wood was ex pected to be present but be has gone East The reporter subsequently entered tne, house and met the master ot tbe dwelling. The host wenton to say tbat tbey were dickering for four different locations, and that tbey would decide on one of them last night but would do nothing more nntil after tbe New York meet ing. He further said that the Brotherhood' club would have the best players the market could afford, and that tbe schedule would be made so as not to Conflict with tbe games of tbe Athletics. ABOUT THE JOCKEYS. Senator Hearst Slay Get Hayvrnrd Big Offer for Unrneii William Hayward, the jockey, will, wo hear, ride for Senator Hears't next season. We do not know that it is definitely settled, but we have heard that Matt Allen, who trains the stable horses, has negotiated with Hayward for his services since his jockey, Hamilton, signed with Mr. Belmont Tbe retirement of Mr. Cassatt leaves Hayward without an engage ment He could ride as a sort of free lauce and secure all tbe practice be would need, but Hayward is a most -conservative man. He prefers a steady engagement It is wholly op posed to his temperament to figbt for his po sition. He loves tbe security of position, is ratber old-fashioned, and has no "valet;" be carries his own traps about and is always around when bis stable's horse Is running, and whether be is riding or not deems It bis duty to be present and assist in making his horse'f toilet. Fred Taral, the jockey, has severed his con nection with the Beverwyok Stable. Taral has been in Campbell's employ for tbe past two years, and has ridden some very clever races during tbat time. Campbell says the trouble with Taral was one or increasing weigbt Tbe young man is of good constitution and inclined to fiesb, and several times he bad been nnable to make weigbt for races which the stable con sidered it bad an excellent chance of winning. We were tempted to answer Campbell to tbe effect tbat tbe bandicappers were as much at fault as the jockeys, who, like Taral, are forced to "stand down." The addition of four pounds to the scale of weights has not worked the benefit expected, as tbe handicaps, which are numerous, are at a very low standard, and tbe top-weichts areithe ones which declare. Johd Campbell, tbe Beverwyck' trainer, told us tbe other day he had offered Barnes, the jockey, $8,000 for his services for next season, but the little jockey refused to sign. Barnes bas had more offers tban any one in the profes sion. Senator Hearst and Mr. Scott both are said to have wanted him, but he has acted very coy with everyone who made any advances, and it became common gossipjtbat be was "holding out for the best offer." Barnes has the repu tation of being the best light-weight in tbe pro fession, and in tbe opinion of many he is fully five pounds better tban any of his cotempora ries. Certainly he has wonderfnl patience for a youngster, and seems to be able to time his finish with a judgment tbat would do credit to Tom Cannon or the best in any country. Stoval has been engaged to ride for the Bev erwyck Stable for the balance -of the season. Stoval will arrive from tbe West and ride at Linden on Saturday. He has been prominently before the pnblic as a jockey for the last six or seven j ears, and will be a decided acquisition to the riding talent "over the river." Spirit of the Times. DEMPSEY DISGUSTED. The Marine Empbntlcally Refuses to Fight the Nonpareil Aealn. SAN Francisco, October 26. Jack Demp sey. the middleweight pugilist is just now ex periencing what it is to be the under man in pugilism. He wants to fight George La Blance. the lat ter only smiles and says he don't care about fighting even if the winter is coming on. He says he Is well fixed, has -just invested $1000 in gas stock which pays a handsome dividend, and is fitting up a wine room. Dempsey is disgusted at the' failure to secure a match with La Blanche as an unknown, and has resigned as boxing instructor of the California Athletic Clnb. This is tbe tbird time Jack bas handed in bis resig nation, but it is understood tbe club will not accept it Dempsey is eager to return to New York, where be is promised a great benefit He has given up all hope of getting a return match from' La Blanche, and may leave for the East at once. JOHN WARD ON THE RESERVE RULE. He Says the Leacue Managers Are Mis taken In Tbeir Views. rerxciu. telioham to tbe dibpatcil.1 New Yoek, October 2H John Ward, the President of the Baseball Flayers' Brother hood, is ot theopinlon that the impression which has gained ground among the League managers that they have a prior claim on tbe players after their contracts have rnn out, and that the reserve rule will hold In law. Is all a mistake. Ward thinks tbat the word "reserve" does not bind a player against tbe whole world, as some of trie managers would have it under-' stood. Ward intimates .that the, League bas. forfeited its rights under the contract by cer tain illegal breaches. Will Hustle nt Beaver.'' rSPXCIAI. TELXORAU TO THE PISPATCH.1 Beaveb Fai,L3, October 28. The Beaver Falls Baseball Club will make a great effort to capture the Beaver County league champion ship next season. New grounds will be secured near tbe central part of tbe town, as the old grounds, Geneva Park, is too far away to draw well. The new grounds, located near the cen tral part, will average 600 or 600 people to a game. A stock company will be formed and several new players and a good battery secured. Joseph Close, a young business man of Beaver Falls, will probably be elected manager. A Promising Boxer. Harry Bryant, a local aspirant for amateur boxing honors, is coming rapidly to the front A few friends had him "tried" last evening, and be performed well. He is only 17 years old and weighs about 120 pounds. He is a very bandy youngster, and may be a competitor in tbe national amateur boxing tournament next year. Sporting Notes.

MOfiE THAN $1,000 TOR PHIZES, Jack Hammond Wins $300,000 on His Eace'r, laureate. PAEEELL AND THE MAEINEMAr FIGHT. Wiud-Up of the Lexington- Fall Meeting General Sporting Hews. Arrangements have been made for a grand 72-hour go-as-you-please contest to take place in this city during Christmas week. There is a probability of a battle being ar ranged between Pat Farrell and the Marine this week. Hammond won $300,000 on his horse Laureate. The Lexington fall race meeting finished successfully. The sporting pnblic in and about Pitts burg may expect another big six-day pedes trian contest here shortly. Manager Harry Davis bas made definite, arrangements for a 72-hour race to take place in this city dur ing Christmas week. Prizes aggregating 51.000 will be given, and a new track will be prepared for the event. Mr. Davis bas been figuring for sometime on holding a 142-hour race, but at tbe last moment be has changed his mind, and tbe contest will be as above stated, It will take place in the London Theater, but that place will be entirely renovated for the occasion. The bar and all the partitions in the interior will be taken out and a track laid right around the building. This will be somewhat costly, bnt Mr. Davis means to have it done. The track will be about 25 laps to the mile, and a track of that size is satisfactory to tbe leading pedestrians particularly for a 72-hour race, atthe rate of 12 hours per day. SOME BIO PEIZES. The $1,000 will be divided into prizes, as fol lows. First, $450; second, 1250; third, $150; fourth, $100: fifth. $50. Beside these prizes a gold medal worth 100 will be given to any con testant who breaks a record. In addition to these two conditions, opportunity will be of fered the contestants to make a sweepstake contest that is a numbecof them can put up $50 or $100 each, and tbe winner of the party of contestants in the sweep to take all or part of the stakes, the balance to go .to the second, third, etc Noremac, Moore, Bay and others favor this idea strongly, and they claim that at least six or seven of the contestants will be able to put up $50 or $100 each. Of course any contestant not putting up a stake will not have any claim to share the money, even though he should win tbe race. The stakes will only be contested for by those who put them up. The entrance fee to the race will be $25, and it is Jesired to limit the starters to about 20. A limit will be fixed and no prize will be paid to a contestant who does not get over it in the 72 hours. ALL THE LEADING PESS. Mr. Davis has already heard from the leading long distance pedestrians in the country, and it is expected that the following list will be sure starters; George Connors, G. D. Nore mac, D.Herty, P. Golden, William Smith, the Cowboy; M. Horan, J. Adams, Gus Guerrero, E. C. M oore, .G. Howeartb, T. Cox, J. Bay, Sam Day, Andy Slebert, J. Hughes, P. Hegel man, Norman Taylor, and Hart the colored chamnion. This lot probably Includes tbe best 12-hour-a-day pedestrians In tbe country. Hegelman, Cartwright, Noremac, Moore and Guerrero are all extra ordinary 12-bour-a-day men, to say nothing, of Golden. There is considerable rivalry among almost all of them, and it seems certain that there will be a good sweepstakeput up. Cart wright bas many admirers here, and they are ready to back him. Noremac has backing in Philadelphia, and it is likely tbat he will be backed against Cartwright in a very spirited way. Hegelman, too, bas many supporters who' think be can defeat anybody on a reason able track in, a 12-hour-a-day race for six days. At any rate, the proposed match will give them all a chance, and doubtless it' will be a great event TO MEET THE MAEINE. Arrangements Being Made for Pat Farrell to Flht La Blanche Definite Word Expected This Week A Let ter From Halllnnn. There is a strong probability that Pat Far rell, the promising young middleweight pugil ist of this city, will be. matched against. La Blanche this week. He will -probably know definitely about tbe matter to-morrow or Tnes- day, and if he is informed that a battle has been arranged he will leave for San Francisco at once. A few days ago Farrell received a letter from his enthusiastic admirer John Hailinan, of San Francisco, statins tbat he. Hallinan. had presented Farrell's name to the director of tbe California Athletic Club, together with an offer for Farrell tofigb,t La Blanche for the middleweight championship. .The directors thought well of the proposition, but deferred definite action on it until a future meeting, which was to be held last Monday. As soon as tbe directors would come to an agreement on the matter Hallinan promised to again write Farrell, therefore, a letter Is expected early Hallinan has had a conversation with Tbe Marine on tbe proposed battle, and the latter Is quite willing to fight Farrell at' 161 pounds Jiroviding a substantial purse is offered. Hal inan feels confident that tbe club will make a good offer, and tbat tbe battle will take place. The sporting writers of San Francisco have all given Farrell's claims to the front rank great Srominence, and several ot the club directors now hfm very well. Farrell, who is on the local police force, was questioned regarding the matter last evening, and dnringja conversation, he said: "Yes. it Is trne tbat I expect to meet La Blanche. I had a letter from my backer. Jack Hallinan, two days ago, and he seems to think tbat it will be a go. La Blanche has promised him tbat he'll fight me at 161 pounds, and this weight is suita ble to me. I really offered to get down to 153 pounds and allow La Blanche to fight at catch weight At present I weigh about 190 pounds, but I can easily get down to 161. I have a great desire to meet tbe Marine. Of course I think I can best him, or else I would not be willing to fight him." Farrell, undoubtedly, is in excellent health, and, excepting bis extra. weigbt is in first-class condition. He is amuch improved boxer since the time when he metand.knocked McCaffrey our. He is not only more active, bnt is a better bitter, and certainly exercises better judgment He bas been a most careful student of the "manly art" for .months, and from a pugilistic standpoint, has been a great gainer. Probably a better opponent lor La mancne coma not De secured, because his stvle is in many respects similar to that of the Marine's; while Farrell is, undoubtedly, a harder hitter than the van quisher of Dempsey. At any rate 'the Pitts burger's friends are in hopes tbat a contest be tween him and La Blanche will be arranged. If it is, several Pittsburgers will travel to San Francisco to see tbe encounter.
