THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1890.
6 t UK A SUMMER SKY. That's Wliat Brunell Says of the New League. TALK ABOUT DESERTERS. Swartwood's Strong Reply to Secre - tary McKay of Hamilton. THE SPORTING KEWS OF THE DAT T. H. Branell, Secretary of the Players' Baseball League, was in the city and talked very interestingly. Ed Swartwood replies to Secretary McKay. President Hewitt, of theJWashington clnb, clearly defines his position in a letter. Frank H. Brnnell, Secretary of the new baseball League, arrived in the city from the East yesterday on business relating to the new local club. He bad a lone confer ence with Fred Carroll on matters relating to telegraph tolls, tickets, chairs, umpires, etc Air. Brunell had expected to meet Mayor McCallin, but the former was sev eral hours later in reaching the city tban anticipated and lie failed to meet the Mayor. "However," said Air. Brunei), "my business is cot of great importance and any member of the club will da" THE GENERAL SITUATION. In talking about the general condition of baseball affairs the new League Secretary said: "I have been round our circuit and I can assure you that everything is lotely. We could not wish for brighter prospects. Every club is in line and every player confident of success. John Ward will leave for the South Jn a-few days to Iook over the ground with a Tiew of taking his team and the Philadelphia team a trip. There are so many new elements In his club that they must have a good practice before the season opens so that they can play together. Mr. Ward will go as far as Charles ton, S. (X, I think, and if grounds are available he will take his teams there." '1 Indorse the opinions in The Dispatch to-day," continued Mr. Brnnell, "regarding the national agreement. It is certain that if the new League is successful, which it is sure to be, it must be recognized by a national agreement. There will be one to recognize it irrespective of that cow in operation. At present the National League is threatening every club that ventures to play with our clubs. That may be all right for the If. L. jnst now, but we'll get all the exhibition games we want, and the present work of the N. L. will recoil on itself next 3 ear. BOYCOTTING VON'T GO. "Any boycotting that may be indulged in by the League magnates will not prevent our suc cess, but it will gain ns more friends. Time will prove this most certainly." 1 Mr. Brunell went on to say: "I have also found in my travels that the defeat of the N. L. in the Ward case has done us an Infinite amount of good. Why, our friends are more enthusiastic tban ever, and more nnmerous tban we could even have dreamed ef. All the deserters are clamoring to get back. On Tnesdav last I had an overture in behalf of Delehanty. Mnlvey and Clements are also eager to rejoin ns ana so are many others whom I could name. However, I fear their chances are slim. We have said such strong things about these deserters that I think the public Mould notsupport us in taking these renegades back into camp. They left ns when our troubles were thickest and our out look dismal. Other players stood with us and weathered the storm, and now that success is assured and we are on safe gronnd it would hardly be manly on our part to place these de serters on eauality with the cood and tried men we have. My remarks apply to Beckley, Miller and every deserter. We can get along without them. Better men came to the rescue when they left ns and for my part we can do without the traitors." ABOUT THE UMPIRES. Regarding the umpires, Mr. Brunell said: "I have only made anything like a definite agreement with one man, viz: Gaffney. John Kelly has not applied yet, but he may do so. There have been a few names published, but these men have not been definitely engaged yet. They are good men and may finally be onr umpires. As re gards their salaries we will have to deal with them as we do with ball players, make terms with them individually. None of us can well estimate the valne of a good umpire. My idea is to have four first-class men and four new men, or comparatively new, and put a new and old umpire together. At any rate we'll have good umpires." Mr. Brunell talked about the pending law suits and said: "It entirely depends on the New York old League club whether the Ward case will be argued this month or not. If the club pushes the matter it ill soon come up for trial. Lawjer Howland is certai 1 that Ward will win again. At Philadelphia we have engaged Mr. Johnson, the leading lawyer in that city, and ho is confident that the League has no case; m fact the Philadelphia suits are looked upon as jokes. Mr. Johnson wants no retainer for his case he is so certain of winning it. Most cer tainly we will be victorious in the legal con tests." The next meeting of the new Leasee will be held at Cleveland, on March 1L when the um pires and the schedules will be definitely agreed upon. Mr. Brunell left for Cleveland last mid night. SOME PLAIN TALE. Ed Swartwood Snjs Some Strong Things About Secretary McKay. Secretary McKay, of the Hamilton, Ont, ball clnb, is again to the front with a scurrilous attack on Ed Swartwood, the ball player of this city. McKay terms Swartwood one of the best disorganizes in the business. Referring to the matter, last evening, Swartwood said: "Now let me tell the public the cause of all this McKay spleen. I ref nsea to do the con temptible and dirty work that snch people as McKay always want done. He was ever hound ing me to fine players $50. $100 and so on. the object being to deprive these poor fellows of their salaries so that the directors would get the money. I will cite one ot many instances: On one occasion this man McKay came to me and urged me to fine Ed Sales and Oldneld each SlOtt. I asked what for. He said they were drunk on the previous evening. I said that I was with Oldneld at that time until 11 o'clock, and he was perfectly sober. 'Well, fine him anyhow,' said McKaj. I replied by saving I wonld have Sales and Oldfield at his office the bext morning to meet McKay's informants, and have the matter settled. If it was proven, I said, that the players were drunk I would certainly fine them. I took them to the office, but the informants were not there and McKay had the audacity to say tome: 'Why fine them something.' I refused to do anything of the kind on hearsay, and of course that made a man like .McKay very mad. After I had left the management the club was in Toledo Manager Powell received a telegram from Mc Kay stating: "Can you not fine Blair for some thing.' Powell came to me and said hecer tainlv would not do any dirty work like that for anybody. "The fact is tne club was losing money and that man McKay desired to have some of it back by taking ihe salaries from the poor ball Slayers. That was always his great object and e could cot get a man mean enough to do it. It is work of this kind that has caused ball players to try and protect themselves. There are too many McKays in the business. As far as my being a disorganizer is concerned I leave that to be decided by my resord in places where I have been for years; places where clnb officials are gentlemen and know something about baseball." Meadville In Line. Frank Torreyson has returned from Mead Title and states that sufficient money has been subscribed there to organize a club for the New York and Pennsylvania League. Efforts will now be made to organize a club at Youngs town and another at Carlisle, and If this is done Pittsburg will make the eighth clnb. It was intended that if Meadville would organize a team that Pittsburg would also join tne league, but now Pittsburg supporters want eight clnbs In tbeeague. Mr. Torreyson thinks that eight good clnbs will be secured., A Letter From ftnm Dny. Sam Say, the well-known pedestrian, has been baring a hard time of it at Detroit. He Is just recovering from a long and severe Ill ness. He went there some time ago to take part In a race and was overtaken by a sickness that has nearly cost him his life. In a letter to this paper yesterday he states that he is recov ering now And adds ie has many good friends. A DRAWN BATTLE. Bowen. the New Orleans Lightweight, Fights an Unknown Forty-Three Hotly Cm- , tested Rounds Both Men Badly Pun- ished The Sheriff Looks On. Nef Orleans, February U Andy Bowern the local light eight who has challenged Billy Meyer, had a fight with skin gloves at Ablta Springs to-day .with Charley Johnson, who claims to be from Minneapolis. There has been bad blood beu een the men. Johnson was one of the fighters imported by Professor Dennis Butler, and was charged by the Bowen party with participating in the loading of McHale's gloves. Bowen told his managers that the fight mnst be made if not a cent was in sight, so it was fixed for $100 a side, all the money Johnson could raise, and all the gate receipts. Bowen was taken sick last Wednesday with la grippe. and got married the same day, so his backers decided to forfeit the stake. Bowen would not heir of it and came over Saturday afternoon, fonght a high fever all night, remained in bed nntil time to fight and appeared weighing 134 pounds. Johnson is a head taller, longer in reach and was in the nink of condition. He owned up to 137 pounds, but appeared much heavier. After considerable wrangling. George Queen, leader of the newsboys' band, and a brother of Queen, of Haverly's minstrels, was chosen referee, and made the best man seen here in that position, although only a stripling. The fight proved to be for almost nothing, as only about 200 people were in the bull ring,wbere the mill was given, and very low of them paid. It turned ont a great fight, lasting three hours and twelve minutes, and would have been going on yet but for the arrival of the train. In the first round Bowen rushed his man and knocked him down three times, punishing him severely around the body, but not sufficiently to knock him out. Bowen was not hurt, but he exhausted his vigor in the one ronnd and was not strong enough at any future time to deliver the finish ing touch. After the first round Bowen con tinned to force the fighting, but his plucky leads met with clinches and Johnson's clever upper-cuts in the face. This continued until the sixth round, when Bowen cut his eye against the rough stake in a clinch, and had bis lip cut in the two following rounds. After that he waitedjfor Johnson to lead, and the latter could not be coaxed or abused in doing it. The fight lasted for 43 rounds without being finished. Bowen disobeyed bis seconds and rushed his man at intervals, getting in some fine body and jaw blows, and receiving upper cuts in the month and eye in return. Bowen's face was ternblv swollen and he bled freely. and Johnson's chest, sides and back were cut and bruised. In the last few rounds Jonnson did lead several times and land, but Bowen rushed him in return and did terrible punish ing, considering bis condition. Johnson's upper cutting at close quarters again served him in good stead in these rushes, although the returns did cot phase Bowen one bit. But when train time came the end of the fight was as far off as ever and the men were told to come forwrftd and shake hands. Bowen objected, but yielded finally, and that ended his first drawn fight. Johnson is said to be an alias, that narty being declared to be a well-known Northwestern lightweight, while others say he is Jimmy Collins, of St. Loui, who is wanted in connection with the barge tight there in which the death of one of the fighters resulted. The net gate receipts were divided between the men, each getting $8. Schoenhausen, th; concert saloon man, who is managing Bowen, gave him the $100 stake. Roughs gave considerable trouble. They were Bowen men. Once they broke into the ring and were promptly elected bv the Sheriff. who witnessed the affair as a spectator and peace officer. Bowen offered Johnson money to lead all through the fight, but Johnson refused and left all the rushing to Bowen, who grew wary himself, so that sometimes live rounds in succession passed without a blow. The excur sionists, after being out from early morning, only returned to-night minus dinner and thoroughly exhausted. Bowen is still willing to fight any 133 pound man In the country, and can obtain all the backing necessary. HEWITTS LETTER. The Washington President States HI. Club's Porltlon Quite Emplinllcnily. Washej gtox, February 9 President Wal ter Hewitt, of the Washington Baseball Club, has written a pnblic letter regarding his plan for the coming season. After stating his in tention to remain in tlu League, Mr. Hewitt says: "I never contemplated selling my fran chise to the Baltimore club. When the decis ion was made in the Ward injunction suit it practically settled the negotiations between Mr. Von der Horst and me. He could not transfer the plavers I most desired, and I did not care to relinquish an interest in my club for the few players he could transfer, and whoml bad no use tor. The deal, I believe, wonld have been concluded earlier had it not been that Baltimore believed it bad a chance to get into the League, aud with Detroit make a 12-club circuit. "At tbe recent League meeting Mr. Stearns, of Detroit; approached me. and wanted to know what I would sell for. The price lput upon the club was exceedingly high, but, not a whit higher than what I really valued it at. So much for the Detroit matter. "The League has never shown the slightest wish to get rid of Washington. It regards it as 1 do as a good ball town and when I was wavenng last fall the delegates used every ar gument they could to induce me to remain in the League. I have taken a five years' lease on tbe new grounds, and awarded the contract for the erection of the grandstand and fences, and will have an eligibly located ball park next sea son, which, 1 believe, will be a credit to tbe city. I am getting together as good a team as the experience of Mr. Sullivan with young players will permit, and already have 12 men under contract. I expect to secure several more good men, and believe the team will com pare favorably with anv club iu tbe League which has had to make a new start in gettii ing a club together, as I have bad to do." AN ENGLISH CHALLENGE. John Roberts Want to Play the Best American Pool Player. London, February 9. Frenchmen have played billiards in America, and Americans have played billiards in France, but it still re mains for an Englishman to cross cues with an American. Mr. John Roberts, Jr., is willing to be tbe pioneer, though not at billiards. The game as played here is not at all like the game as played in tbe United States. Mr. Roberts could vanquish easily any American player at the English game, and there are a number of Americans who could defeat him at the balk line game and perhaps at straight rail billiards. At pool there is a fair field for both sides, as the difference between tbe games as played on both sides of the Atlantic is of no consequence. Mr. Roberts has Issued a challenge through tbe Herald to tne pool players of America, and in it be offers to play any reasonable number of games of pyramid pool for 500 or 1,000 a side. He desires that half of tho games should be played in London and the other ball in the United States, each man to pay his own travel ing expenses, and tbe winner of tbe majority of games to take tbe stakes and gate money. It is not unlikely that Mr. Roberts' challenge will be accepted, as there are a liuuiber of expert pool players in America Tbe greatest of these, Albert Frey, died Within 12 months, but Malone ran Frey very close, and sbonld the challenge of Roberts be accepted will probably be pitted against tbe English champion. Didn't Come to Time. Saw Francisco, February 9. Dick Roche, representing Schaefer, gives McCIeery one week to cover his $2,500 for a billiard match. Baldwin did not come to time with the alacrity expected, and it now looks as if he wonld not pnt up tho remaining $1,500 at all. McCIeery will, therefore, look elsewhere for backing, and thinks he can get it eventually. If the match is made it will be a game ot 3,000 points. 1,000 of which will be played each night nntil finished, straight billiard, Schaefer to give McCIeery a discount. Monarch live cushions will be used. Roche has deposited 230 forfeit for Schaefer's appearance Rnmurs of Another Denl. IFFECtAI. TELEGRAM TO TITB DISPATCH. New York, February 9. It is rumored to day that another big baseball deal was ready to be launched. No authentic information could be obtained. It was said that the New York and Detroit clubs proposed to form a combina tion and purchase tbe Indianapolis players and franchise. Detroit to take the franchise and New York the players. President Stearns seems determined to get a League franchise, as bis recent efforts to buy out the Washington and Cleveland clubs plainly show. A Reply to Bate. Mike Dugan's brother called at this office last evening and left tbe following statement regarding the challenge of Jack Bates which appeared iu yesterday's DISPATCH: T have wired my brother concerning the challenge and will hear from him to-morrow. I think he will fight Bates, because two years ago he made the Youngstown man take water. He may do so again. If my brother is in condition to fight he will get plenty ot;bacfclng." Off to tbr Fight. John Qulnn, accompanied by several local sporting men, left for Buffalo last evening to at tend tbe battle there to-night between McBride and O'Leary. The contest will commence about 9.30 this evening, and it is expected to be a good one. It will take place before a private club. A Sharon Cocking Main. Sharon, Pa .February 9. One of tbe most hotly-contested cocking mains ever held In Eastern Ohio or Western Pennsylvania was fought early this morning just over the Ohio State line. Six battles were fought between Sharon, Pittsburg and Youngstown birds, re sulting in a victory for the latter. Over $1,000 changed bands on the result.

The poolroom pro prietors of this city assert to-day that they were beaten ont of a total sum of $18,000 by a gang of conspirators yesterday. The "killing" was made on the fifth race at Guttenburg, and fully ten rooms were mulcted. My Own was second choice in the betting at 5 to 2, and the money was not put on until the horses bad been at tbe -post some time. The "bookies" claim that the conspirators had the race. Then the money went up simul taneously in all the rooms, and wnue tne tickets were being written the race came in. Over f 18,000 was paid ont, and now they propose to take no more bets after the horses are at the post. BETTING HIGH ON M'AULIFFE. Heavy Wasera Offered by His Backer That Jack Will Defeat Carroll. New Yobk, February 9. The following spec ial was received at the Police Gazette office yesterday: 8AS Fbancisco, February 7, 1890. DlcV Roche, the well-known turfman and back er of Jack McAullffe, publicly announced at the Baldwin to-day that he would bet from 85,000 to 10,000 that McAuliffe would defeat Jimmy Car roll, and he stated that he knew four others In icir York who In a pool would bet twice that amount. Koche, McAuliffe and Billy Madden are the lions ol the city. L. R. Fnlda has telegraphed Klchard K. Fox to forward tbe articles of agree ment the clnb sent on to McAuliffe to sign and tho 1500 deposited br McAuliffe as a guarantee that he would meet Carroll. A nieel'ng Is to be held to night to arrange the details or the match. Carroll claims tbe light-weight championship and the Police Gazette belt McAullOe holds. Sporting Notes. If Bums does not come here, Fred Carroll says there is another good man ready to come. When in New York Secretary Brunell tried to see Bob Ferguson, the umpire, but failed. Secretary Brunsxi. says that President Speas, of tbe Kansas City team, is one of the finest gentlemen in the business. Playersdon't like to leave him, and therefore Burns may not come. Beuneli, stated yesterday that there was a time when Brotherhood leaders talked of put ting the Pittsburg club into St Louisand trans ferring Hanlon and Carroll to Cleveland. That time is past. The Pittsburg League officials should drop their damage suit against the Pittsburg Play ers' League club. Such proceedings are silly and preposterons. They have about as much chance of winning such a suit as a snowflake in hades. Cincinnati Engxtirtr. Buck Ewinq says: "I believe that both tbe League aud Brotherhood will be in the field this time next year. It is hardly likely that either of them will go to tbe wall. If the Brotherhood pays 1 cent of dividend to its players we will get every League player over on our side that t e want. The Brotherhood is to-day stronger than it ever was." So matter what tbe outcome of the Brother hood fight mav be. tbere is one set of men who will be indelibly stamped with the mark of in gratitude. Tbo members of the New York clnb went back on a man whose name stood as a symbol of all that was fair and honorable in baseball, both in bis treatment of his players and in the business affairs of tbe game. John R. Day is snen an honorable man himself that he never dreamed that the very men he had hampered and loaded with favors were small enougu to enaeavor to rou uim 01 nis Dusiness, and it was not nntil the very last moment that he would admit there was such a thing as a conspiracy. That a dozen employes could be found low enongh to try and ruin such an em- Eloyer is a sad commentary on American man ood. j&iguirer. ' PBEACHED 60 YEAES. A Co Laborer of Alexander Campbell Panes Away Alter Nearly a Centnrr of Life Forty Years Without a Salary An Earnest Christian Worker. I6PECIA1. TELXQUAX TO TBE DISPATCIM Wayitesburg, February 9. Elder David White, -who died at his home in Oak Forest, this county, last Tuesday, had preached tbe Gospel regularly for nearly 60 years, and had preached several times with in the last year. He was born and raised in Greene county, and was' a cotemporary of Alexander Campbell, whose doctrine he ad hered to. With the exception of the brief illness which closed his life, he had never been sick three weeks, all told, from his childhood up to his death. He was fond of horseback riding, and although nearly a century rested upon his back, be could sit on the back of a horse with as much grace as a practical equestrian of 20 years. His friends ray that, had it not been for a trip he made to town a tew weeks ago, he would have been Hying yet, and enjoying good health. His home is six miles away, and he rode in on horseback, but, the weather being mild, he neglected to put on heavy clothing, and the exposure caused his illness. In the fifties he made two trips to Mis souri, going the entire distance, and making his return on horseback. He was a stanch advocate of the slavery abolition move ment and while preaching this principle, in that state during one ot his trips be re ceived warning from the Jay hawkers to de sist. He met their threat defiantly, but under tbe advice of friends, lelt the State. He preached fortv years and did not miss a Sabbath, but never would permit his con gregation to pay him a salary. He founded a church and erected a building, bearing the entire expense. Although he would preach funeral ser mons on request, yet he objectet to the prac tice and would permit none upon the occa sion ot the burial of his wile, two weeks ago saying: "It does the dead no good and is no honor to God." He believed the burial of the dead was more impressive without the ceremony. MAREIAGE A DEAD FAILURE. Tbe Wife and Property of nu Old Sea Cap tnln Both Gonr. tEPKCIAI. TELEOKAM TO TBI DISPATCH.: Can andaigtja, N. Y., February 10. Samuel B. Bigelow, ot Savaunah, at the age of 75 years, and after only two years of married life, has concluded that marriage is a iailure. Although he had been impervi ous to the fascinations of the fair sex for 72 years, he became infatuated with beautiful Bessie Smith, who was only 30. She was supposed to be a widow, and her lonely con dition, as well as her graces ot mind and' feature, touched the lovable old seaman's heart. He proposed, was accepted, and Bessie for two years made bis charming rural abode the most congenial haven in which he had ever cast anchor. After a two years' cruise on the sea of matrimony Captain Bigelow had become so devotedly attached to his young first mate that he deeded her all his worldly goods so that there might be no question as to her undisputed enjoyment alter bis death. John Smith appeared soon after the transfer' bad been completed, and it turned out Bessie was still his lawful wife. Captain Bige low was compelled to leave the place, to the enjoyment qt Bessie and husband. Captain Bigjlow then went to Savannah and now ekesouf a lonely existence, supporting him self meagerly by filing saws. KICHES IN THE EARTH Oil Production the Most .Profitable Industry in Butler County. A MILLION. AND A HALF IN CASH To Be Expended in Labor and Material for 500 A'ew Wells Next Spring;. f A YOUNGSTOWN CHDECH DIFFICULTY. All the Hews Front neighboring Cities and Towns in Three State. Butler county citizens have come to the conclusion that oil is the greatest source of wealth in that" region, rive-hundred new wells, costing 51,500,000, are to be started as soon as the weather permits. A Young stown church is in trouble over the employ ment of a new chorister. SPECIAL TXLEC1 HAM TO TH DISPATCH. 1 Butler, February 9. The growth of the oil business iu this county has been phenom enal, and overshadows all other branches of trade in its profits and the amount of money invested. Tbe greatest progress in the development of territory has been made in tbe past year, and at no time in the history of the country has there been such great activity in the search for new fields as at the present time. It has been estimated by persons whose reliability can not be questioned that 500 wells will be started as soon as the roads become solid. As the average cost per well does not fall below $3,000, it may readily be seen that this means an expenditure of $1,600,000 for machinery and labor, aside from tbe vast snms which are being paid for bonus and rental on leases. In the township of Center, lying north of Butler, 52 test wells have been drilled in- the past 15 years, and yet the production obtained there in all that time would not pay one-fifth of the cost ot operations; and more wells are being drilled in that vicinity to-day than at any previous period. Experience lias taught tbe important lesson that the drilling 01 one well in every school district does not make a thorough test, as has been abundantly demon strated in recent years. TEST 'WELLS I2T EVERT TOWNSHIP. In 30 of the 33 townships in the county wells are being drilled for either gas or oil, and, within the ensuing three months every town ship will have its test well. And then tbe sand in which this county abounds. There is the 100 foot field, the third sand, the fourth sands, the Bullion sand, and at this time a well is being driven near Murrysvllle, in tbe hope of finding the Spoochbnrg sand, 2,500 feet be low the surface. From all these different strata, except the last, oil is being produced, and in a number of instances wells wbich had been producing for years have been sunk deeper with very gratifying results, demon strating that several oil-bearing rocks may be found in a single well. Another phase of the business, and not the least important by any means, is the enrich ment of the farmers, hundreds of whom have reaped fortunes from beneath their lands, on which, before the discovery of oil. they were 1 not able to earn more than a very moderate living by cultivating the soil. And after all this is tbe most abiding benefit growing out of the development of oil territory. MOST PERMANENT BENEFIT. Years hence when the last barrel shall have been pumped ont, the derrick s removed, the wells plugged, and the operator has emigrated to new discoveries, there will be left behind a prosperous farming community possessing ample means to improve their lands and put them in fit condition for the more quiet and peaceful pursuits of agriculture. Tbe cold weather of Friday inspired bope in tbe breast of tbe producers here, but the snow and rain which followed so quickly npon tbe frost have put tho roads in as bad condition as ever. Lockwood A Co. are still drilbng in tbe sand on their Young farm. It has good sand and oil, but not enougb gas to cause the well to flow. The South Penn Oil Company's well, on tbe Staples farm, bas been drilled deeper, and has Increased to 125 barrels per day. The Januai.v daily production of tbe wells on Little Creek 100-foot field was about 2,300 bar rels. The Cashdollar well, owned by the As sociated Producers, is doing 190 barrels per day. The Phillips well is doing 15 barrels an honr. Christie Bros.' No. 6, on the Henry Welsh farm, is doing 200 barrels per day. The Hazlett well is still making moro than 100 bar rels a day. IN THE WASHINGTON OIL FIELD. A 200-Acre Tract Leased and Operations to Be Began Soon. rSrXCIAL TEIZOBAM TO THE PISPATCS.1 Clatsvtlle, February 9. A tract of land, consisting of 200 acres from tbe farms of N. B. Brockman, N. R. McNeaL James C. McCona bey, William Hutchison and Campbell Jobes, has been leased with an option or first privilege on the balance, comprising something over SOO acres, by T. F. Irwin. The conditions of the lease provide that operations shall be com menced on tbe land within 40 days from Mon day, February 10, 189a Upon a failure to do this tbe lessors shall foneit the lease. The property lies about three miles south of town and one mile south of the Laird well. Hauling in tbe oil field is made very difficult by the mud, which is very deep. Brownlee well No. 2 has been reopened and is being drilled to the fifth sand. Llndley No. 2 is rigging up and will begin spndding Mon day. Tbo lumber for two new rigs is being hauled to the Gourley farm, where two new wells will be located tbis week. CflUncn MEMBERS CAN'T AGREE. A Church Congregation Falls Oat Abont the Employment of a Chorister. rClTCIAIiTELIGRAM TO THC DISPATCH. I Yodngstown, Febmary 9. Considerable feeling has been aroused in Trinity M. E. Church hereby reason of the official board dis pensing with the services of the chorister and also the organisr, and employing in their places Prof. Charles Liebman 10 perform the dual duties. Tbe board claims that its action was justified on the gronnd that it was necessary to curtail the church expenses and employ one in stead of two persons. Prof. Liebman Is an ac complished musician of conceded ability. A portion of the congregation claims that because he is a Hebrew be Simula not have been se lected. Other members hold opposite opin ions, and assert that neither tbe creed nor na tionality should be considered in such a mat ter, as it is uuchristianlike. Unless a settlement is soon effected tbere Is great danger of a split in the church. Prof. Liebner entered npon bis duties to-day. CABOOSES WRECKED AliD CREW HORT One Train Dashes Into Another and Two Men Are Badly Injured. r SPECIAL TKLEOBAM TO THE DISPATCH. BROCKWAYVH.1LE, February 9. As a freight on the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburg was standing at a siding the carpenters' train.whlch had been following, came along, running its caboose ahead and dashing into the rear, wrecked both cabooses. The crew of the sec ond train saw the other on the track in time to jump. In doing so Bam Kinlay was badly hurt about the head and bad several bones broken. D. C.

A Priest Who Waa Arrested and Fined De cides to Lenve Town. SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO TUB DISPATCrt.1 Port Jebvis, N. Y February 9. St. Patrick's Church, a Catholic house of worship that was built a few years ago in Milford, Pa., has lost its pastor, the popular Father Joseph Smith. Father Smith was placed in charge of the church about a year ago. Three months ago a nephew of the priest's, the motherless 12-year-old 'son of his brother, came from Philadelphia to find a home with his uncle. A few days ago he entered tbe house of one of Father Smith's parishioners. He was weeping and bis appearance was startling. His eyes were blackened and swollen, his lips puffed out as if from a blow, and his face bruised and swollen. In explanation of his appearance he declared that Father Smith had charged him with not raking the stove down properly, and then beat him with a poker. Father Smith appeared before the Justice ot the Peace, and although the boy's evi dence by which he alone could be convicted of tbe charge was not to be had, the priest, bursting into tears and sobbing like a child, coulessed to being guilty as his little nephew had declared. He said that he was not in his right mind when he committed the act. Ihe justice fined :him $10 and costs, and, severely reprimanding him, dis charged him. Tne disgraced priest left Milford, and it is uot expected that bewill return to his parish again. COAL AS COLLATERAL SECURITY. The Last Roy of Hope In Ihe Anthraclto Region Hm About Depnrted. TSPKCIAI. TELEOEAM TO TBI DISPATCH. 1 Pottsvuxe, PA.,jFebruary 9. The ray of hope for tbe 5,000 idle coal miners in the Schuylkill basin, that was held out a few days ago by the appearance of a cold wave, has vanished. The snowfiakes fell again to-day, and the prediction of a blizzard re newed the hopes, but cold weather is not yet in sight. In spite of all this idleness, the destitute laborers are not fully aware of tbe fact that hundreds of thousands of tons of coal they have mined in tbe past few months have not yet been sold. It has been trans ported to a number of large storehouses within easy reach of the great markets, so that, in the event of a blizzard, the cutting off of transportation and th? sudden demand for coal, the companies could readily and speedily meet the demand. But there is a double purpose in this stor ing awav of large lots of anthracite. If ever the producing companies run short of ready cash and want money quickly, they can of fer this stored coal as collateral security. Thus far this year the coal sent to market is 435,000 tons less than ior a corresponding period last year, and the shutting down of more mines this week will increase the cur tailment in shipments. At all points in the Beading Company's territory the most eco nomical and effective reorganization is go ing on. RESIGNED AS A CARD PLATER. The Break of n Congregational Pastor of a. New York Church. SPECIAL TKLEOnAM TO THE DISPATCH. I Lockpobt.N. Y.,February 9. The Bev. E. B. Furbish, pastor of the First Congre gational Church in this city, resigned to day. This is the result of a chnrch row of several months' standing. Part of the congregation desired that all candidates ior membership should promise to abstain from card playing, theater going and dancing. The pastor sided with the men theater going, daqcing and card-playing faction and then the trouble began. From the church it spread throughout the denomina tion in this part ot the State. Tbe CongregatiOnalUt, the leading church organ, tooK up tbe side against the pastor, and the majority forced the pastor to re sign. Members of both factions threatened to go, and a number of the younger mem bers or the congregation withdrew from the church. Circulars were distributed by both sides, and for months the strife has been going on. A council ot the churches will be called in a few davs to dissolve the relationship of the pastor and the church. F0DR SKELETONS POUND. IHysterlona Discovery Which la Causing No Little Excitement.

SOME VERY UNRELIABLE TALES Hare Been Printed Concerning the Con gressman's Condition. THE COMING FUTUKES IN THE HOUSE. Those Eules Bore to Monopolize a Goodly Share of Attention. It was announced last evening that Mr. Bandall's condition had noticeably im proved. He had the pleasure of reading, however, that Mr. Wanamaker had said he was going to die. 'The Postmaster General emphatically denies making any such statement.- nrXCTAI. TXLIOBAM TO THB DISFATCS.I Washington, February 9. Congress man Bandall's condition has improved to day and his friends are hoping that he will be about fully recovered from the set back he has sustained during the last few days. The weather to-day was bright and clear and the change was felt and appreciated in the sick room, where the atmospheric con ditions have quite a perceptible enect I "irhis evening Miss Bandall said to The Dispatch correspondent: "My father is much better to-day." Then referring to the sensational reports about bis being in a dying condition, printed in some of the newspapers, she said : "I can't imagine where the correspondents ot those papers get their information. If they sit down coolly and make it up them selves, I can't understand their andacity and hard heartedness in printing it. I am sure we give straight in formation to inquirers. You can imagine yourself that it would be very depressing if you were sick to see daily accounts in the papers stating that you were very ill and hardly expected to live the week through. My lather reads the newspapers every day, and it is quite irritating to him to see these reports. "He saw to-day in one of the Philadel phia papers that Mr. Wanamaker had said that-he was in a dying condition. It hap pened that Mr. Wanamaker called here this afternoon, and my father asked him whether he was correctly quoted. Tbe Postmaster General emphatically denied having made the statement, and declared that he had not even seen the correspondent of that paper yesterday. There is eqnal truth in the other printed reports about my father being in a verv low condition. He is better and getting along nicely, and he would probably improve more rapidly if he did not continually see some correspondent expressing his opinion on his case." Lightneb. THE WEEK IN C0MBESS. A Big Debate Expected on tbe New Ralek In tbe House Warmontb' Nomination Will Probably Come Be fore the Senatet WASHINGTON, February 9. The code of rules will be the chief subject of interest to come before the House of Bepresentatives for consideration this week. It is the inten tion of the Committee on Bules to call it up as eirly as possible and to limit debate, so that final action on the subject may be reached within two or three days. While there are more than a few of the new rules that are obiioxious to the Democrats, it is not probable that the oppo sition win ue uiunuesieu oiuerwise man oy speeches and by adverse votes upon them, provided the minority are afforded what they regard as a reasonable time for dis cussion. Probably by the time the rules are dis posed of the Committee on Flections will have reported the contested election case of Atkinson versus Pendleton, from West Vir ginia, and action upon that case will con sume the remainder of tbe week with a possible exception in favor of the unfinished business, which is the bill to extend the cir culation of tbe national banks. There are indications that the Blair edu cational bill, which has the right of way in the Senate, will run through the week and perhaps a longer period before a vote is reached upon it. The author has not yet finished his speech, and a num ber of Senators are ready to follow him with set speeches on the same subject. The bill in charge of Senator Piatt, to or ganize a territorial government for Okla homa, will probably be disposed of in the morning hours and any odd ends of time therein remaining will be devoted to mis cellaneous "unobjected" business on the calendar. In the executive sessions the Senate, it is expected, will consider the nominations of General Morgan, to be Commissioner of In dian Affairs; Dr. Dorchester, to be Superin tendent of Indian Schools, and Ex-Governor Warmnuth to be Collector of Customs at New Orleans, all of which are subject to controversy.
