up bizth street to Marker, to Third avenue to
Wood, and then on to Sixth avenue. Then it
will go tomithSeld street to Second avenue,
and then up to Grant Mreet to Fifth avenue.

lreily, and immediately afterward the
sea bieezes produced a chilliness.
Others liked the place very much. Fred
Carroll never looked better in his life. He was
in excellent condition, and if appearance coes
for anvthlnc Fred ought to play a great game.
He thinks tne team is a cood one and is of
opinion that they will stand well up in the race
if al! goes welL

THE CINCINNATI DEAL
Prince, "Warner and Johnson Have to Fight
the Matter Out.
President J. Palmer O'-Neil, of the local club,
was in very happy spirits jesterday ou account
of good news received from Cincinnati. At
leaa tbe news appeared to be good to him.
Handing out a telegram he said:
"That settles the League claims in Cincin
nati." Tbe telegram went on to say that the Court
had ordered the money to be paid into court
for distribution among tbo claimants, and Pres
ident O'Neil continued:
"I w ired President Youmr on tbe matter to-
da, and he replied that tbe money is nuw on
it way to Cincinnati. It will be there to-morrow.
If Messrs. Prince and Wagner have any
claims they can now proi e them sn that John
son will not get all tbe money. Tbe matter is
now for the three of them to settle, and the
League is now out of it. W'e have gotten tbe
grounds and the club, which we have paid for.
and it is matterless to us who sets tbe money."
An Associated Press dispatch from Cincin
nati sajs: The litigation concerning the
League grounds reached a conclusion to-day
by an order of Court appointing Mr. William
Albert, Cashier of tbe becond National Bank,
receiver, to whom tbe League shall pay $30,000
in dispute, which shall Jie disbursed by tbe
receiver according to law or the judgment of
Court hereafter rendered. Unless tbe League
pajs to the receiver this money by Wednesdav
the injunction asked for to prevent them from
usinc the ball park will be granted. It is un
derstood tbe League will pay the money to-day
and will not be troubled on its occupancy of
Anson and His Team a Little Knocked Ont
by Their Trip.
CHICAGO. April 2a Anson and his Chicago
club returned to the city rather unexpectedly'
Saturday morning. Tbey were scheduled to
play a t Joliet and went to that point. The Fri
day night storm, however, had blown down all
tho fences at the ball park and so tbe club came
home. It is not in the best of shape. The cold
weather along the'route has resulted in stiff
ness and sore arms galore. A few weeks of
hot weather, however, will serve to straighten
tbe club out. i
From all accounts tho catcbiss department.

WALLACES 'SIDE OF IT." "
The Owner of tbo Trotting Register Ex
plains a Few Matters. "
Chicago. April 2tt Regarding the contro
versy concerning a turf register, John H. Wal
lace said last evening:
"My price is not one cent less than 1200,000.
The Register is five years older than the Na
tional Breeders' Association. The Register
earned S17.T97 in the six months from October
L 1890 to March 1, 1S3L That is nearly 36 per
cent on the capital stock of J100.000 or 18 per
cent on my price. $200,000. If the Register is
left in my bands, I shall at once reduce tbe fee
for registration one-half. My stronghold is in
tbe numbers attached '" 'he horses in it whith
were assigned in my office and accentuate my
rights under the copvright law. If another
Register is started tbe registration fee will not
be reduced. I must in that -vent fight my op
ponents in thp courts. I own 87 per cent of the
Register's stock. " The Kentucky influence
which has always taken everything in the
trotting horse line is that which is most pro
nounced against me."

Fever at Yale.
New Hayek, Conn., April 20. Captain Van
Huyck, a member of tbe Yale Fresbmen crew,
is seriously ill with scarlet fever. It is said
that cases of tbe fover throughout the Univer
sity are numerous, thongh tbe fact is carefully
guarded, but none of a malignant fever is re
ported as yet. No little anxiety is felt, on the
part of tho navy managers, for the 'Varsity
men who have been exposed to the disease, and
an attack of the disease at this time of the
year, no matter how slight, would probably
rum a man lor tbe races next June.

TEE ISLE OF ALCATEAZ.
Heirs of General Trcmont and Others 'Who
Think They Have Title.
:srr.ciAi. txlegkam to the DisraTcn.1
FlNDLAY, April 30. Tbe supposed heirs of
tbe Island of Alcatraz, located in Ban Fran
cisco Bay, who are in this city, and are working
up tbe case in behalf of tbe heirs of General
Fremont and themselves, claim to have re
ceived additional evidence to support tbe claim
ofGeneral Fremont to the island. As will be
remembered tbe General bought the island for
the Government, and the Government .repudi
ated the purcb se. The General paid for it,
however, in l&A
hi nee then the Government bas come into
possession and bas expended some 510.000.000.
The trouble with tbe culm is that a clear chain
of title from tbe Mexican Government to Tem
ple, who sold the land to Fremont, has been
lacking. The heirs here claim to have received
a letter from Sab Franclscif, containing what
purports to make a clear title to tbe land. It is
in Spanish, and Is from Don Fio IMco, to Tem
ple, made In 1S48, tbe same year It was bought
by Fremont. Tne paper will be turned at once
over to Attorneys L. K. Porter, of Pittsburg,
and Spiegel and Uctieary, of Greensburg.

TIGHTS HOLD THEIR OWN. .
The Minnesota Legislature Adjourns With
out Passing the BUI.
St. Paul. April 20. The Legislature
adjourned to-day sine die without having
passed'any of the radical bills which had
so aroused the fears of the business com
munity, and caused so much and so unfavor
able comment throughout the country. The
bills for the taxation of mortgages, provid
ing severe penalties for usury, aud lowering
the rate of interest, hostile railroad legisla
tion, and all the measures aimed at corpora
tions of all sorts in iact, about all the semi
communistic and agrarian measures died in
one or the other House, and there is an ex
pression of relief from the State that the
danger is past.
S. F. 76, a bill introduced by Senator
Hompe and passed by the Sefmte, providing
that any person may bdild elevators on the
right of wav of railroads, one of these radi
cal bills, came the nearest to being a law of
any of them. It had passed tbe Senate sud
late Saturday night it came up for passage
in the House. It received 58 votes, just
enough for passage. Its opponents, how
ever, did not then give up the fight, but
wheu the journal was read this morning
they found that three members were recorded
as voting in the affirmative wbo had not
succeeded in having tbe journal corrected
and approved as corrected, and the bill was
killed. The only railroad bills passed were
such as were acceptable to tbe railroads, and
other corporations were equally well treated.
The income tax bill and the McHale anti-
rtights bill passed the Senate, but both were
killed, in House committees. While the
radical. and injurious proposed legislation
was not effected, some Important bills were
put through, among them being the Aus
tralian elections bill tor the entire State,
the Congressional reapportionment bill and
the so-called anti-Pinkerton bill, with an
amendment providing that detectives may
be employed by oersons or corporations.

ISFICTAL TKMQBAMTO THE DISPATCH.l
New York, April 20. A suit bas been
begun by Sarouy, the Union 'Square pho
tographer, against Wilson Barrett, for non
payment of his photo bill. The trouble be
tween the actor and photographer began
about a year ago, when Wilson Barrett was
acting in this city. According to Mr.
Sarouy an agreement was made, whereby a
a number of photos were taken
of Barrett for advertising purposes.
In accordance with the usual custom, Sarony
gave Barrett about three of each variety.
Barrett then demanded that as many as were
necessary for advertising purposes should be
given to him free. l"he photographer de
clined to do this. Barrett, as alleged, then
threatened to get an injunction restraining
Sarony from selling his pictures.
Sarony did cot publish any of the pictures,
but he sent a bill to Barrett for the work
already done. The amount was about 200,
but payment was refused, on tbe ground
that Sarony bad not filled his part of the
contract, Barrett is in London now. buthiij

TBT DUJtLAP'S CABLE COUPaNT.1
London, April 20. The last scene of all
in tbe strange, eventful history of Gladys
Evelyn against William Henry Hurlburt
was duly enacted to-day before Justice Cave,
the special jury, which has listened for a week
to the stories of the contending parties, and
a large crowd of fashionably-dressed specta
tors. Wjth the fair plaintiff iu the front to
remind one of the stage and the gayly-clad
audience listening and taking an active in
terest in tbe proceedings, one might with
very little- stretch of the imagination have
believed himself assisting at a matinee.
The learned Judge, on taking his place,
concluded his summing up of the case, and
at 1 o'clock the jury retired to consider its
verdict. When the jury filed into the court
there was a hush of expectation as the clerk
-arose to speak the well-known words: "Gen
tlemen of the jury, have you decided upon
yo ur yerdict ?" After a moment's pause
came tbe reply from the foreman: "We
have. We find there was no promise of
marriage made by tbe defendant to the
plaintiff." Justice Cave then said: "Then,
that is a-verdict for the defendant."
This decision was greeted "with some
slight applause by Mr. Hurlburt's friends,
who were in a body in the conrt, and that
gentleman, rising from his seat, instintly
began to push bis way out. The plaintiff's
demeanor at this moment was in marked
contrast ,to Mr. Hurlburt's manner. She
sat quietly in her place for a minute
or so looking stolidly in front of her, as if
nothing had happened, least of all in which
she was.interested. Then she turned to her
solicitor and said, in a low voice, but one
which was distinctly audible: "But he did
promise to marry me, and I will prove it
Before she left the court, a Dunbjip repre
sentative bad a short conversation with Miss
Evelyn and asked berif another prosecution
was probable. "Yes, indeed," replied that
lady, with an easy, graceful manner. "Then
I am to understand that you are ready to
defend it?" asked the representative. "Oh,
we shall prosecute, not he," replied Miss
