Baseball matters in Cincinnati are not in
good shace by any meaus, and it is proba
ble tbat tbere Yfiil be lots of trouble there
before anything is put in apple-pie order.
The situation has been one so complicated
tbat President J. Palmer O'Seil, who rep
resents the National League in Cincinnati,
yesterday afternoon wired President X. E.
Toun at "Washington, requesting him to
call a special meeting of the League, to be
held in Cincinnati Friday next, to have the
matter thoroughly discussed. The truth is
there have been gross misrepresentations
made by some people regarding their claims in
Cincinnati and as a result it is now quite ap
parent that Al. Johnson his not by any means
such an absolute control of the Cincinnati club
as he represented to Mr. O'Neil.
The latter jesterday afternoon made the fol
lowing ny significant statement: "I have
justrrceiveda tery important letter from the
League attorneys in Cincinnati which makes
matters look quite mixed ud In tbat city of
hams and lute ball troubles. Our attorneys
tell me that they have seen papers which con
vince them that Al Johnson had no right what
ever to sell the interests of Messrs. Prince
aid 'Wagner to the Leagne without first

about i 1.500 in the interest of the club and its
grounds. Altocether their joint interests in Jhe
rlu'.i amount to more tban SI 3. 000. and our at
tnrneys point out that Mr. Johnson could cer-
talnlr not sell ont tne ciUDWiinournrai seiiiin:
the rlMms ot these two gentlemen. In other
words, there his been gross misrepresentation
made to us by raebody, and the matter will be
Lncal baseball authorities who are interested
In the matter argue that Johnson must have
known of the valid claims of Messrs. Wagner
and Pnnce all along. At any rate there will
probably be a lively time before the
matter is fixed up. Johnson has not
jet received a cent Irom the League. He has
a drat' on Pieriticnt Yountr, but its payment
has been stopped until the difficulty is cleared
up. One tbirg is certain, judging from the
letter of the League's Cincinnati attorneys, and
that is thai the League cannot get the regular
ball rroumls at Cincinnati until Messrs. Wagner
and Prince are settled with.
Duringtbe last few days another matter or
importance has been discovered. After the
deal with Johnson was made by Mr. O'ffeil the
latter wired President Youns for a League
franclnso for tne club. President Yonng wired
the oi her clubs, and soon discovered that the
franchise bad been granted to Mr. Brush,
notwithstanding the many reports to tbe
contrary. Mr. u'Ncil had then to open
negotiations with Mr. Bruh who had ground
all eady secured Mr. Brush was qmte willing
to join with Mr. O'Keil and go ahead, but both
gentlemen were at a loss to know what crounds
to begin and get in condition owing to the
claims of Messrs Wagner and Prince. This
was another cause for a special meeting of the

or not a special meeting will be called, hut

A Cock-and-BuIl Election Story About Ex-
President Cleveland Denied.
rsnciAL tslkgkamto thi dispatch. i
Massillon, March 21. A highly colored
story has been sent over the country from Can
ton and Alliance, which professes to give the
heretofore untold inside history of tho reason
why ex-President Cleveland declined to assist
in the defeat of McKinley last November, by
lending bis presence and delivering a few
speeches in the distner. Tbe pith of the story
is that Cleveland Ignored all the pres
sure brought to bear upon him to come,
and finally, in answer to an appeal from
Governor Warwick, telegraphed that if
Warwick would guarantee that he would
have at least 2.0U0 majority in tho district he
would come, but he could not afford to injure
his prestige by coming if the Democratic ma
jority was likely to be materially reduced.
Governor Hill was then importuned and re
sponded by makinc speeches at Canton, this
city and Millersburg, and upon Warwick's
election by 300 he wired Hill, thanking him for
the result. A son of Warwick's and State
Senator Howells, who were Mr. Warwick's con
fidential advisers in this campaign, cbfracter
ize the story as ridiculous and utterly without
foundation. Senator Howells denounces it as
having probably been started by some drunken
mn. Governor Warwick is in California.

Action of the Mob Who Broke Open
Washington, March 24. Secretary
Blaine this morning received a letter irom
Governor Nicliolls, of Louisiana, in regard
to the recent killing ot the 11 Italians in the
jail at New Orleans, of which the following
is a copy:
state of louisiana.
Baton Rouoe, March 21, 1SDL
"Hon. James G. Blaine, secretary of btate,
Washington, D. C:
"Sir At a late hour on tbe loth inst., I re
ceived a dispatch from you having reference to
the forciblo breaking, on the 14th of this
month, of the jail of this city, and tbe killing
of 11 persons confined therein under indict
ments found in the Criminal District Court for
the parish of Orleans.
"You stated to me that It had been repre
sented to the President by the Minister of Italy
accredited to the United States, that among
the killed ou that occasion were three or four
snbj-cts of the King of Italy. The telegram
disclosed an apprehension ou the part of
the Minister, evidently shared by tbe Presi
dent, that the disturbance was a continuous
and swelling disturbance, which might involve
the Italian subjects in Now Orleans.
"I have reason to believe that the hope ex
pressed by the President, that I would co
operate with him in maintaining tbe obliga
tions nf tbe United States toward the Italian
subjects, who might be within the perils of tbe
excitement, and that further violence and
bloodshed might be prevented, was based upon
that belief. The President further expressed
tbe hope that all offenders might be promtly
brought to justice. '
-On the 16th inst. I telegraphed you that
there was no excitement in tbe city at that
time, and tbat 1 saw no reason to anticipate
further trouble. I also stated that the action
taken was directed against particular indi
viduals, and that tbe race or nationality of the
parties did not enter as a factor into tbe dis
turbance. A week bas passed since the date of
my last dispatch, and the opinion then enter
tained as to the termination of the trouble bas
proved to have been "ell founded. The men
killed, as I have stated, were confined in prison,
under indictments found in-tbe Criminal Dis
trict Court for the parish of Orleans; the
Sheriff has made his return of the facts to that
Court; tho Judge thereof has charged the grand
jury, now in session, in regard to tbe matter,
and the whole sublect Is, I assume, now under
investigation by that body.
"I am satisfied that most of the persons
killed were American citizens, but It is prob
able that twb or three were Italian subjects.
"I have the honor to be. very respectfulls",
"Francis T. Nicholls, Governor."
Governor Nicholls' letter is written on
official paper, and dated at the capital of
the State. It i& evident, however, that it
was written in New Orleans, as it speaks of
tbe killing as having occurred at the jail in
"thl3" (that) "city." Secretary Blaine bas
sent a copy of the letter to Baron Fava, tbe
The Department of State will not take fur
ther action iu the matter of the New Orleans
tragedy until tbe Italian minister makes
some further communication upon tbe sub
ject. He bas cabled tbe substance of Gov
ernor Nicholl's letter to his Government,
and tiie impression at the State department
is tbat he will await the action of the New
Orleans courts before making further repre
sentations to the'State.
THKEE SMALL FLBES.
Colored Families at Shady Lane Burned
Out, and a Small Blaze at Shoenberger's.
Several small fires occurred yesterday. At
2:35 o'clock in tbe afternoon a fire was dis
covered in a frame bouse on Shady lane,
near Richmond's ice pond 'and an alarm
from station 215 was at once sent in. By the
time tbe engines reached the scene the
house and one adjoining it were enveloped
in flames and weie burned to the ground.
The houses were occupied by two colored
families wbo lost most of their household
effects. The buildings were under charge
of Straub & Meyers, atrents. The owner's
name could not be learned. Tbe loss
amounted to about $2,500 and is partially
covered by insurance. The fire was caused
by a defective flue.
The alarm irom box 11G, about 7:30
o'clock last evening, was caused by a chim
ney fire at No. 18 Singer's row.
At 10:30 o'clock an alarm was turned in
from box 47, caused by some timber taking
fire in the Bessemer department of Shoen
berger's Mill, Fifteenth street. The fire
was put out before tbe department arrived.

S& confident are the manufacturers of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy
in their ability to cure Chronic Catarrh in the Head, no matter how
bad or of how long standing, that they offer, in good faith, the above
reward, for a case which they cannot cure.
