In a little chat with John 2x SulliT-an, he draws forth what the big fellow will and won't do. Finally the writer says the Brotherhood has the. long end of baseball sentiment in New York. tCORKISrOSDKNCK OF THE DISPATCH.: New Yoke, January 18. Two Pittsburg gentlemen, whose faces are very familiar to Fifth avenue habitues, accompanied by lady friends, evidently Bast Enders, were dining in the Cafe Normandie, in Four teenth street, last evening. I sat near them r-nd from the driit of the conversation I in voluntarily learned that they were discuss ing the subject of New York's "400." The fair members of the party were tak ing sides with the UcAllister clique, and expressed themselves to the effect that the ncme of their li ves would be reached were they only members of the swell social set. One of the gentlemen, whose character istics do not savor of the strict social re quirements now in vogue to maintain one's position as the possessor of gilded crest and plumed ancestry, interrupted the ladies by this startling speech: "Oh, this 400 business is tiresome! They're nothing but the descendants of a lot of greasy old Dutch Knickerbockers, who came over here wearing wooden shoes and hair plaited down their backs, with the malodorous scent of onions saturating their skins. "We don't gain anything by their existence, com mercially or otherwise, so change the sub ject, waiter, cnectc, pleasei That man is "business" from away back, end no Anglo-maniacal fads worry him. FRESH T1IEATBICAX, GOSSIP. Everybody goes to the theater in New York, there being at least 40 places of amusement thrown open to the pnblic night ly, and Broadway is a bustling throng irom 11 o'clock until 1, or even later, where a theater party has chatted long and late over luncheon at Pel's or Sherry's. I had occa sion to go to see Denman Thompson's "Old Homestead" recently, and I find it has lost none of its old-time grip on the lovers of the realistic stage country life. Nothing could be more natural, and I am sure that the old Allegheny county farmers who have grown rich unconsciously must enjoy such an old time repetition ot scenes in their boyhood days on the farm, as is truthfully portrayed in "The Old Homestead." Gilbert and Sullivan's latest opera, "The Gondoliers," is torn to shreds by the press, which is all on account of D'Ovly Carte's bad selection of conceited English singers to present it to us Americans. True it is that we will stand a vast amount of imposition, where there is a semblance of a show for the money expended, but when it comes to a case of "laughing up the sleeve" in full view of us, there's where we draw a sign "Danger." Such is the verdict here of "The Gondoliers." It is simply rehash and a conglomerated mass of Sullivan's weakest musical efforts. It is already on the wane, and I hear that the English managers intend calling it off very soon, in order to save it, if possible, from utter condemnation and rele gation to the slough of desuetude. MISTAKE IDEAS OP SULUTTAJT. In a downtown sporting rendezvous, the other night, I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Prof. John Lawrence Sullivan, Boston's proud exponent of Fittania. I was introduced by the sporting editor of a leading daily here, and the big boned and big-hearted fellow arose with ex tended hand, and a really courteous how-de-do, pleased-to-know-you air simultaneously followed. He has not that soltness of voice or gentility which are qualities of the ultra social gentleman, but his manner is far from the published reports classifying him as "a man witn orutai loots and surly manners. He is just the opposite, and is genial, open hearted to a fault with his friends. In this may lie the secret of his shortcomings, as money in his pockets is always an incentive to listen to the ominous sound of "a pop and a fizi." He is the ideal picture of physique, and is the peer of all pugilUts in the' world. He told mc that he would not fight Jackson until the Mississippi trouble bad ended. "Then." said he, "I won't lace him lor less than $23,000, winner to take all. I can whip him, which I have never doubted, after which I shall retire from the ring forever." "While the big fellow was talking he care lessly picked up a loose champagne cork, and taking it between his thumb and first fingers of both hands, snapped it like a brittle stick of candy. This is a very diffi cult trick, requiring an immense amount of muscle. OF INTEREST TO BAI.Ii PLATERS. The injunction of John B. Day and others against John M. "Ward, of the Brotherhood Baseball League, to restrain him from playing with any oiber club was the exclu sive theme of conversation in Nick Engle's resort last night The Brotherhood sup porters were in the majority; in fact, it was almost unanimous possibly with the ex ception of James Murtric, the manager of last i ear's New York club. Evidently he was sore at the world of baseball for its hearty support of the "boys" against the National League, as his arguments did not weigh much against such an armv of players and cranks. "Ward, Keefe, Gore, Kelly and a host of others were present and, naturally, thev felt confident over Judge Howland's brill iant presentation of their case. Tne salient points were that the plaver under the League agreement was a "victim of "bov cotts," "trusts" and "slavery." Joseph H. Choate, for the plaintiff, dwelt on the Ward "reserve" entirely, and said that it meant what it always had. and there was no change in its meaning in the contract as drawn up by Ward himself. Although an able argu ment, the points were not so strong in the abstract as Judge Howland's. A decision will be rendered by Judge O'Brien in ten days. At the hotels I see the following named Pittshurgers: C. L. Magee and wile, at the Fifth Avenue; James H. Johnston, of the Exposition Society, J. H. Murdock, the florist, and "William B. Schiller, at the Hoffman. Lyman Kaine. BAENIE FOE THE SENATORS. Tbo Baltimore Mnniia-er Slated to Blannge the Washington Team. tSrECULL TELEOEJM TO THE DISMTCn.1 "Washington, January 19. Billy Barnie, who has for several years past been actively identified with the Baltimore club, will probably be selected to manage the Washington team in the League during the coming season. Mr. Hewitt stated to-day that negotiations have progressed sufficiently to assure a combination of the Washington and Baltimore players of last year, and Mr. Barnie will have absolute mansgement of the Senatorial aggregation. Mr. Hewitt says he does not propose to retain the services of more than four or five of last year's team, in the event of the re serve rule holding good in court He is counting on obtaining from Baltimore Kil roy.

Parson Davies was the first passenger to place his foot on the gangway of the "White Star steamship Britannic, when she arrived from Liverpool, to-night Al Spencer was the first to shake hands with the "Parson," and then P. J. Sharkey, Johnny Saul, Al Cridge, Charley Troy, Dominick Leonard, and n number of others fought to tell him how glad tuev were to see him safe back iu the United States. The famous negro pugilist, Peter Jackson, from Australia, was of course the chief topic of conversation, because the "Parson" is his manager. In chorus, reporters and all asked: "How did you leave Peter?" "I'm sorry to say," replied Mr. Davies, "that I lelt him considerably under the weather, but it is nothing serious. The cli mate in old England, you know, is so bad that Peter couldn't stand it. but two weeks after he arrives here he will be all right. He will be over on the Adriatio this week some time." "Well, tell us all about it "Will he fight Snllivan, and what kind of a time did you have?" "First class. "We were treated royally all 'round. Peter will fight Snllivan for $15,000 or more, just as soon as the arrange ments can be made." Mr. Davies said that the stories about Slavin having been done up by a gang of touens alter his ngnt with smith were greatly exaggerated, and that Slavin was only slightly hurt It was a play of his to obtain sympathy, and he got it, hut regard ing the gang ol toughs, there were but half a dozen there, and they were afraid to harm him. "Peter made friends wherever he went," continued the "Parson," as he eyed the Custom House Inspector dumping out the contents of a huge steamer trunk. "He was not hissed but once, and then it was because he refused to knock out the man he was sparring with. He let up on the fight ing, and then the hissing began; but it only lasted a few moments, Peter stepping to the front of the stage and explaining that he would not punish his opponent any more, as he was satisfied that he had showed him self to be the better man. In a moment the hisses were turned to cheers." The "Parson," it is stated, cleared 32,000 on the trip, and gained for himself and Peter twice that number of friends. It is understood that a number of members of the Pelican Club in London will send over a handsome souvenir shortly for Peter. which will be not only intrinsically valu able, but an honor seldom conferred on any pugilist AFTER A FEAKCHISE. Tbo Five Tribes of Civilized Indians Who Want to Become Citizen Some Important nnd Far-Reaching Proposed Xectalntloa. rSFZCUI. TELEGRAM TO THB DISrATCH.l "Washington, January 19. One of the most important and far-reaching steps in Indian legislation which has ever been brought to the attention of Congress will be laid before the House to-morrow, in a bill which has been prepared bv General Pleasant Porter and other representatives of the five civilized tribes of the Indian Territory who have been in "Washington lor some days, in attendance upon the hearings before the committees of Territories. The bill, which will be intro duced by Representative Baker, of New York, who for ten days has been the chairman of the committee, provides for a complete Territorial Government for the Indian Ter ritory, and its ultimate admission to all the rights and privileges of Statehood. "These Indians," said Mr. Baker to night, in speaking of the proposed bill, "are ready and anxious to become full-fledged citizens of the United States. The five tribes, as every one knows, represent the Choctaws, Creeks, Seminoles, Chickasaws and Cherokees. They are now governed by a council, each tribe having also its gov ernor, and enacting its own laws. They are ready to give up this independence and confide their interests to a governor ap pointed by the President, accepting also such judges and other officers as he may choose. The matter has been very carefully con sidered, and the Indians appreciate the step that they are taking. They are ready to allot their lands in severalty, and sell the surplus to the Government, with the understanding that all treaty rights are to be sacredly preserved." "iow long nas tms leeiing Deen growing in the Territory?" "It is comparatively of recent date, but I am given to understand that the feeling is widespread among the Indians. They do not want to be any longer subject to the designs of scheming politicians and persons. They have every qualification necessary to become citizens of a new State. BISMAECK AND THE CODE. Count Rechbers Once Challenged rilm, but Afterward Cooled Down. Pall Mall Budet.J Ad advance copy of the third volume of Herr von Sybel's "History of the German Empire," which will be published early in January, has been received. Probably the most interesting chapters refer to the rela tions between Prince Bismarck and Count Itechberg, then Prussian and Aus trian Embassadors respectively at the German (Frankfort) Diet. Prince Bismarck, then Herr von Bismarck Schonhausen, soon found out that Connt Kechberg was hot-tempered and pas sionate, but in the main honorable and good-natured. Count Bechberg, on his side, cordially disliked Prussia and its as tute representative, but did his best all the same to keep on amicable terms with his colleague. Both officially and socially there was, however, plenty of friction be tween the two. On one occasion things came to such a pitch that Count Bechberg, losing his self-control, passionatelv ex claimed: "One ot my friends shall wait on you in the morning." "Why all this unnecessary delay?" Herr von Bismarck coolly replied: "In all prob ability you have a pair of pistols handy. Let us settle the matter immediately. While you get the things ready I shall write a re port about the whole transaction, which, in case I am killed, I request yon to forward to Berlin." Both set about their work. When Bis marck had finished he handed the sheet to Count Bechberg, requesting him to examine the same. Bechberg's passion had in the meantime given way to sober reflection. After having perused the report he said: "What you say here Is quite correct; but is it really worth while to fight a duel for such a reason?" "That is exactly my opinion," was But marck's answer, and tne matter ended. WINNINGS OP TEE DUKES. Bow the Tnrf TJaed Great Britain's Nobil ity Imt Seatoo. Pall Mall Budget; The Duke of Portland again heads the list ot winners on the turf during the past year, his gains amounting to nearly JE74, 000.

The Dnke of Portland's success which is quite unprec edentedhas naturally affected considera bly the winnings of other owners. Last year only three have won more than 10.000, compared with hi in 1888.

A BANKRUPTCY BILL That Will Meet All the Exigencies of the Situation. THE VIEWS OP DON DICKINSON. Many of the Measures Before Congress Now Attempt Too Much. SOME SCHEMES HOT CONSTITUTIONAL. Principles Which Should lie Adhered to In Enacting a Kitional law. Ex-Postmaster General Dickinson criti cises some of the national bankruptcy bills now pending before Congress. Nearly all have objectionable details or are too cum brous. Some contain provisions which the Supreme Court has already decided against. Detroit, Mich., Jan. 19. Ex-Postmaster General Don M. Dickinson has de cided views upon the subject of the national bankruptcy bills now pending before Con gress. The opinions coming from such an eminent authority upon the subject as Mr. Dickinson is admitted to be, will beof value not only to the legislators, but to the public as wclL Mr. Dickinson said: "My examination of the several bills introduced at the present session of Congress has necessarily been of a cursory character. I should say, with the exception of H. B. 3316. introduced by Mr. F. B. Taylor, that they have been somewhat hastily prepared and were merely tentative, the author probably contemplating tneir amplification and perfection in committee. SOME FECDI.IAB FEATURES. "One of these includes corporations in its provisions, and would permit a corporation to obtain n discharge like a natural person. Another inserts a new and impracticable test of insolvency. Another assumes that the bankruptcy court would have the power to enjoin proceedings in the State courts already commenced, or afterward com menced, of which the State court would have at least concurrent jurisdiction. "No such power can exist in a bankrupt cy court, and cannot be conferred by act of Congress. This was settled by the Supreme Court of the United States nnder the last bankruptcy act I notice in these bills pro visions under which preferences conld not be set aside unless the person preferred had notice of the intended bankruptcy. The only true test on the question of whether a preference should be set aside must in the interest of justice, be whether the creditor receiving the preference knew at the time that the debtor was insolvent A CAREFULLY PREPARED BILL. "House bill 3316, above refered to, is very carefully prepared. It contains many of the excellent provisions the Massachusetts Insolvent Act, still I am inclined to think it too elaborate and complicated. It es tablishes a machinery of administration which in its practical workings will develop the principal objections to the old bank ruptcy law great expenses and small divi dends." "In the history of jurisprudence no more satisfactory method of disposing of an es tate has been devised, up to the present time, than that which is furnished by the equity courts and by equity procedure. I mean, of course, in cases which cannot be disposed of by agreement of parties in in terest, which should always be permitted where possible. I think the nrincinal ob jects of a bankruptcy law should be as fol lows: First To relieve present debtors, of which there are a large nnmbcr. from existing indebt edness. COMPROMISE TVHEN POSSIBLE. Second To enable the honest insolvent debtor, with live assets, to compromise with his creditors wlthoa being subjected to what may be called the blackmailing of a small minority. Third To punish commercial fraud and to set aside fraudulent transfers of property and fraudulent preferences. All proceedings should bo made to conform to chancery procedure, and thus the cumbersome and expensive, irri tating and prolonged methods built up by and under the act of 1&6I would bo entirely avoided. "I have given my views upon the bank ruptcy law, but I can say that I don't believe any law will be passed at this session. Law yers are against it en masse, as also are a majority probably of the jobbers of the coun try outside of New York." THE W0HEN DO THE WOOING. A Province In Rnsaln That is a Paradise for Spinsters. Detroit Free Press. Ukraine, Bussia, is the real paradise for the spinster. And if in this country a pro totype of the Bussian province could be founded it would be populated in less time than one imagines. In Ukraine, think of it, ye spinsters and celibates, all the courting is done by the women! The man has noth ing to do with the affair. Like Mariana in the moated grange, he merely sits and waits. If the young woman feels stealing o'er her a fancy for a particular young man, she does not pine away in "a green and yellow melan choly." But she buckles on the armor of her affections and sallies out like a conquer ing hero. To drop similes and come down to matter-of-fact language, the young woman, when she falls in love with some young man, without delay discloses to him the true condition of her feelings. Does he love her? Then the marriage ceremony is arranged without delay. Does he not love her? Then the love-sick dam sel plants herself in his residence and an. nonnces that she will stay there until a revolution shall come in his feelings. The young man is helpless, because the friends of the young woman will avenge any affront that the young man shall offer to her. But ne is not compelled by either law or custom to endure her presence forever. When he becomes tired of the attentions of the love lorn lass, he cau pick up bis lares and penates and move out When the affair reaches this climax, it is equivalent to an announcement that the young man posi tively will not wed. AN ELEPHANT'S SAGACITf. He Lifts Up a Wheel, Tuns Savins; a Man's Life. Fall Mall Budget. The stories illustrating the sagacity of the elephant are innumerable; but few are more remarkable than the following one, recorded by a writer in a Bombay paper upon the authority of an artillery officer, who was a witness of the incident: The battering train going to the siege of Seringapatam had to cross the sandy bed of a river that resembles other rivers in the East which leave during the summer season but a small stream of water running through tbem, though their beds are mostly of considerable breadth, very heavy for draught and abounding in quicksand. It happened that an artilleryman, who was seated on the tumbril of one of the guns, by some accident fell off in such a situation that in a minute or two the hind wheel must have gone over him. The elephant, which was stationed behind the gun, perceiving the predicament in which the man was, in stantly, without any warning from its keeper, lifted up the wheel with its trunk and kept it suspended till the carriage had passed clear of him.

Pine Grove, January 19. Kossuth Bickelman, a notorious member of Yank Gable's gang of burglars, was captured at his homo at Cherryville early this morn ing. Last Tuesday night a week ago the meat house of George Stupp, a fanner of Washington township, was robbed. Sus picion pointed to Bickelman, and Farmer Stnpp placed warrants in the hands of Con stable Israel Hummel, who searched Bick elman's house and found a portion of the stolen meat The constable tried to effect a capture, but was unsuccessful. Last night he called to his assistance George Hummel, Peter Hain, David Fisher and George Stupp, who surrounded Bickelman's house at 4 o'clock this morning, but were fired at by Mrs. Bickelman, who was standing at a window with a gun in her hand. They beat a retreat, and at 7 o'clock this morning made a second and successful visit. Mrs. Bickelman met the officers and in formed them that her husband had escaped, whereupon they threatened to take her sons. She then called her husband from his hid ing place, and he delivered himself up. Bickelman belongs to a gang whose mem bers have committed burglaries in Lebanon, Dauphin and Schuylhill counties. His career as a robber has extended over a period of 20 years, 18 of which have been spent in jail. He refuses to disclose who the other members of the gang are. He was lodged in jail this afternoon. Yank Gable, the leader of the gang, who was shot and captured two years ago while robbing the house of Henry Swartz, in Wayne town ship, is now serving a six-year term in the county jail. EI0T AND BLOODSHED. Old Avenue Again DisilncuUhcd by Blot nnd Attempted Robbery. Tony Coreaun, an Italian who has been working on the West Penn road, beyond Hoboken, was standing in front of the house occupied by Kate Fagan, on Old avenue, near High street, about 8 P. M.t yesterday. He had been visiting a triend iu the next house, and it is supposed, was thought to have considerable money about him, as be had been speaking about returning to Italy before long. Suddenly he was set upon by a large crowd, which he says contained Thomas and Anna Francis, his wife, Kate Finn, Kate Fagan and Dottie JffcKee, who registered when arrested, as Dr. Mary Walker. The crowd ponnded the unfortunate Italian with bricks. bottles and stones, in efforts he says to rob him. His chest was torn open, his hand cut badly, and his body one masx of cuts and bruises. He was removed in the ambulance to the Homeopathic Hospital, where his condition was considered exceedingly dangerous. Detectives Shore, Bobinson, McTighe and Bendel arrested the persons concerned, men tioned above, and there are two others im filicated in the murderous attack, still at arge. Very erave informations will be made against the prisoners, who are all well known to the police and have been fre quently in their clutches. It was thought at a later hour last night, tbat it was questionable if Coreaun would survive his injuries. J3IPEET ELECTRICIANS. Some Remarks Made on the Pleasant Tai lor's New Cars. The latest nine days' wonder in the shape of the electric cars on the Pleasant Valley road attracted the customary crowds yester day, and Smithfield street was thronged at Fifth avenue on the arrival and departure of each car during the entire day. The company had promised to send its patrons to church by electricity yesterday, and it kept its word. The remarks of the spectators while the cars arrived and departed were more or less amusing, as it was invariably those who knew least about electricity who were most proiuse in their explanations of how the thing worked. One sapient expert explained that the current was in the rails, and com municated to tne motor under the cars through the wheels, quoting the horse killed in Allegheny, which promises to be as famous as W. L. Scott's Braddock farmer, in proof of his assertion. The arm above, he said, was only a hollow euidine-wheel to make the car come up in the way it should go, and, as the catechism says, walk in the same all the days of its life." Some appeared timid of trusting themselves in the pesky thing, and thought the good, old mule power was saler, if it was slower. The re marks generally were very amusing. COULDN'T FRIGHTEN THEM. Three Men Who Were Breaking; Doors and Windows la Miller' Honae. At the Sunday morning hearing before Mayor Pearson, yesterday, David Larmer was fined ?5 and costs, or 90 days to the workhouse; Martin Callahan 25 or 60 days, and William MeKnlght 1 and costs, which he paid. The three men were arrested by Officer Schultz at 1 o'clock for breaking the windows and 'the door of John Miller's house on Isabella street. Mr. Miller fired several shots from a revolver to frighten them, but they refused to be frightened. The officer heard the noise, and going to the place found the men and arrested them after some little resistance. McKnight was not so much to blame as the other two. and was let off light. Five colored men were also fined for play ing cards for money in a house on Foun tain street Lieutenant Thornton with some of his officers raided the place and captured C. H. Jones, Perry Davis, J. W. Artnurs, Thomas Miller and Charles Walter. The latter and Arthurs paid S3 and costs each and Davis and Miller went to jail for ten days. Jones had attempted to escape by jumping through a window, in which feat he tore the tail off his coat In addition to that loss he was fined $10 and costs, but had the money and "paid it Mrs. McGinty, who was fished out of the park lake, was given ten days to jail.
