And now begins the great baseball argument of 1891 as far as the National League is concerned. The various aggre gations lull of pennant-winning aspira tions, no doubt, will face each other this afternoon for the first time in the struggle that will terminate next October. It goes without savins that many lond hopes will be ulijrhud bciore the chilly October winds blow and many a promising "phenoni" will he exploded; "swelled" heads will be reduced and probably brilliant "stars" sent into obscuritj. But whatever force may operate it is saie to !ay that nothing short of a revolution in nature will knock the confidence out of our own J. Palmer O'Seil. He was the busiest and gayest man ou the American continent yesterday and if ever faith could trine a far off object within r,?aca J. Palmer certainly had hold of the League pennant yterday. And he was surrounded on all sides by friends whose con fidence of a great season was almost equal to hi okh. To-day's opening game at Exposition Park lias every promise of being one of the most enthusiastic openers ever seen here, providing, of ioure, tue weather is fine. Anson always has a team worth seeing, and the Pittsburg team contains to many new faces that the at traction mil bestroncer than usual. Yester day the cranks and fans were all excited re garding the result of the first gome, and many laucy bets were made. Old-timers cling .to the notion that the local club, that is the National I.caguo club, cannot lose its first game, and as a consequence the home team was a strong favorite Yesterday. Secretary Ecandrett was t-o confident of Mctorythat he bet a hat that the home team would "in three out of the four games this cek. .Manager Hanlnn wanted to bet a box of gojd cigars at the same rate. Prob ablv the Chicago ctuel will accommodate hlin ti-da. At any rato everything points to a very enthusiastic time to-day, and the fact that all the unpleasantness of last season is buried is nut the least source of enthusiasm. To-day's gatiienng at Exposition Park will be some thing of a reunion of cranks after 12 months' estrangement. Both duns will have excellent nines "on the held, as the following make-ups nill show: Pittsburg. Position. Chicago. Jhller Short Cooney lieckl-ii First Anson Carroll".

It is Iikelv that buley will be tried, and if lis is not ir. form "'Old Sport" will take a hand. Luby is In good form, according to report, but it may be that all pitchers will be hit hard. There was a large crod at the grounds yes terday afternoon, and one interesting featuie was tbo pawoc of the players. They each re ceived their cisb, and that helped them to think well of to-day's prospects. The inheld jt".lerday, although a little rough, was in good condition, but much work will be needed this morning to get the outfield into good trim, president O'Iscil utilized about two hours of his time plaing with the gong. The more he ran:r it the more familiar did the sound seem, and then the sounds told him of victory after victniy: but the stories that the sounds told lmn entirely omuted all reference to bis wau de.ersof last year. The Cbicigos will arrive In tnecitytbis morn ing from I't. Wayne, and, as stated in jester day's paper, the parade will start at 1:50. The game will Starr at 3-S3X. It hard and earnest work will make an opening celebration succesi fnl. to-daj's will be a great success, for nobody could hare toiled harder or more faithfully than Al Scandrett, who has had charge of the arrangements.

HA8 FITZ WEAKENED 1 Nothing Heard From the Champion or Ills Manager About the Fight. The backer of Ed. Smith has heard nothing from Fitzstmmons and his manager since the two latter lett this city. Before leaving they promised to put up a forfeit at Chicago on Monday and wire the fact of their doing so to this paper. They have not done so and John Quinn. Smith' backer, says, and very justly, that Fitzsimmons bit be a good fighter, but he Is not anxious to tackle a hard man. It is only fair to say tha Fitzstmmons has not acted squarely with Smith. When in this city the Australian was loud in bis declarations that be would certainly put up money to tight Smith, but as soon as be (Fitzsimmons) has gotten clear of the city it is apparent he does not mean fight at all, but simply means to talk. It is a fact that Fitzsimmons never met a fairer party, nor a party more anxious to arrange a bona hde coutest than the Smith party, and still the most of Fitzsimmons' reply has been abusive language regarding Smith. This is not fair, and certainly is not the part of a champion to play. But on Saturday night last Fitxsimmons verv deu.iitely stated that he would not back him self for 1 cent against Smith, and that he would only fight tor a "'good rat purse" or money put up bv somebody else than himself. All these things considered it is not likely that any con test w.ll be arranged between Smith and Fitz simmons. Efforts will now he made to arrange a contest between Smith and Hall at catchareight. Smith will be quite satisfied with a moderate purse, tue winner to take all. Hlt the Books Hard.

Cincinnati Enquirer. OBEYED THE SPIRITS. HOW THEY FIQTJBE IN A DIVOECE SUIT IN THE CITY OF CULTUBE. Mr. Peck and Mrs. Lake Lived Together for Yean. Until the Latter Was Told by the Spirits to Leave Her Companion She Was Willing, bnt He Objected. rfrKCTAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCB.1 Boston, April 21. Spirits formed a very important factor in a divorce case which was heard in this city to-day before Judge Staples. They ordered the mar riage in the first place, and then ordered the tie broken, and the man and woman obeyed without a murmur. The conple are William Peck, the Spiritualist lecturer, who begs suit lor divorce, and Sarah C.Vetter, better known as Mrs. II. S.Lake, speaker at the First Spiritnal Temple. Her maiden name was Sara Qonerva Chafa, and her life as un- fo'ded to-day has beenteventfui. When a mere gnl it became a part of her creed that even a married woman has an unalienable right to her person, her property and her name, and she has advocated those ideas ever since That ac counts for the different names ot the couple. This is the story which is told: When Mrs. Lake was 17 years old she started out to make her own living. She drifted to New York and studied elocution. There she met a young and hana some Catholic priest, the Rev. Father Henry S. Lake. It was a case of love at first sight. He renounced his religion for the pur pose of marrying her. and they lived together for two years. He died early in IS76. She was overwhelmed with grief until a spiritualist medium gave her an opportunity to commune with her departed spouse. Her spirit husband told her to enter the lecture field. For 11 years Mr. Peck and Mrs. Lake lived together as husband and wife, traveling all over the country lectur ing on matters pertaining to spirits. In 1S88 the spirits thought Mr. Peck and Mrs. Lake had lived together long enough, and so thev ordered Mrs. Lake to sever tho marital bonds which held them. Mrs. Lake blindly followed tho dictates of her spirit gnnlcs. She told Prof. Peck of.ihe commands she had received from the spiri. world. He is a pronounced spirit ualisr, but he did not like this phase of the sit uation. Judge Staples said that be viewed the contract simplv as a contract, with no evidence of marriage. The Court finally took the case under advisement. $50,000 AND A TEXAS BELLE. Taken Along by a Southern Defaulter Upon His Canadian Trip. San Antonio, Tex., April 21.

He was accotnoamed by a most beautiful woman named Labnche. Sullivan's loss is $50,000. Pioget has been located at Toronto and steps for extradition will be taken. A BIO STRIKE AT NEW 0BLEANS.

GOING WITH A RUSH. Continued From First Page. have any amendments demanded made in the Senate. The bill had two provisions, the pro hibition of liquor being drnnk on the premises where sold, and the numbering and naming of delivery wagons, which were worth flghtine for. Me begged the Honse not to call It back. Mr. Quigley, of Philadelphia, defended the swearing rlanse. asserting that the Law and Order Association of that citv bad circulated printed remonstrances, which were signed in discriminately by persons knowing nothing of the tacts. Tliev blackmailed the saloon keep ers by withdrawing the remonstrances on being paid, and many of them had grown rich from their ill-gotten gains. Dr. Towler, or Forest, asserted that the bill had been passed by pressure. The rural mem bets had relied upon .Mr. Brooks, aud now their constituents were asking why they had given up their votes at any man's word. The rural counties demanded an enlargement of the dis cretion of the courts, not a limitation. The rural Republicans would take no steps back ward. The bill should be recalled and made to conform to tho spirit of the nineteenth cen tury. The debate was without doubt the most earnest and interesting of the session, and lasted over an hour. The yeas and nays were finally called, and the bill was reconsidered by a vote of 110 to 60. A discussion arose after ward as to whether the Senate would return it without a resolution particularly calling it back, and to remove all doubts the House to night, after a very acrimonious debate, sus pended the rules, something not dons before this session, and adopted a resolution for that purpose. It may be set down that if it ever gels back to the Senate It will be ma greatly different shapo than at present. THE TAGGART TAX BILL. AEGUMENTS HEAED AGAINST THE EEAS TJEE IN COMMITTEE. rx-Senator Louis Hall Tells How it Will Work Injustice to all Citizens Ad vocates or tho Bill Defend It, and There Will Be Another Hearing. tFBOM A STAFF COEBESFONDKNT.l Harbisbubo, April 21. The Senate Finance Committee heard arguments to night on the Taggart tax bill. Ex-Senator Louis W. Hall appeared lor the manufact urers. He said tnat under the proposed legislation every person, manufacturer, merchant, cit zen, high or low, rich or poor, no matter what bis business or vocation, no matter what his property, whether he derives revenue from it or not, or whether he will ever do so, all these are required to pay their share of the bnrdens of taxation. Assessors were given inquisitorial powers to collect the onerous tax. The people had never been made lamiliar with such burdens as these, and they wonld be slow to realize and appreciate the ne cessity or wisdom of this startling departure. It would intrude on the privacy of all persons subject to It men. women, families, individ uals, partnerships, corporations. It would be a premium on fraud and perjury greater than human power could stand, for It would hold out a perpetually recurring pre mium to conceal property and evade taxation. The taxes on real estate did rot unfairly bur den it. As to the real estate of manufacturers, it was taxed to its fullest value. The reason farmers were not more pros perous than they are was because of the competition to which thev were subjected by the cheaper lands of tbo West. This bill, if it becomes a law and can bo enforced, will pro duce at least $50,000,000 of revenue. Surely that sum will not be needed, and its collection would be a positive wrong. The raising of such an immense sum of money would cause mismanagement, extravagance, folly and wicked peculation. Salaries would be increased and the loosest manner of ex travagance would he tho order of the day. The true policy of the State Is to invite capital and to induce it to come, for that furnishes the motive power for manufactories to build mills. factories, houses and towns, makes a market and at the best market, at the farmers' door. Senators Crltchfield and Brown and Mr. Taggart defended the bill. Mr. Crltchfield denied that the bill wonld increase the amount of taxes raised. It w-as not sought to raise more revenue, but to equalize tho burdens. More property was to be urougbt under taxa tion so that real estate might be relieved. In renly to Mr. Hall's statement that manu facturers pay tax upon every dollar of real estate they own, assessed at a far greater value, than the properties would sell for, Mr. Taggart said such was not the case. They were not assessed at anything like their full value, but were put down to the verv lowest. It mattered not where Mr. Hall got his information, it was untrue. The discussion took the form of a sort of run ning fight between the parties In which It must be said the advocates of the bill had the ad vantage. Another meeting will be held to morrow. TO EEPAY W. H. KEMBLE. The Honse After a Protracted Debate Agrees to the Conlorence Report. IFROM A STAFF CORRESPONDENT. 1 Harrisburg, April 21. The conference re port on the bill to reimburse W. H. Kemble for the money advanced to Governor Beaver at the time ot the Johestown flood camo up to-day and led to another protracted and useless debate. Ex-Speaker Graham opposed the conference report. Ha was in favor of the bill, but objected to the preamble. The Governor had time to call the Legislature together, and the House stultified itself wheu It said ho had not. Mr. Capp would vote for tho bill, but pro tested against tho preamble. It stated that tho People's Baak, of Philadelphia, and Mr. Kem ble had advanced the money without interest, when everyone knew that the bank bad at that time, and ever since, far more of the State's money than it advanced, and had. it without paying a cent of interest. Mr. Baker delended the action of Governor Beaver. Thero was immediate need of the mqney The Legisla ture could not have acted m time. McNeelis, of Cambria, argued the same way, and Mr. Capp said this was no time to criticise Governor Beaver's action. The thing to do now was to repay the money. It was evident that the House was still strongly opposed to the ob noxious preamble, but saw that tho only way out of it was to swallow its feelings, so the con ference report was adopted by a voto of 150 to 13. Messrs. Lafferty and Weaver, of Alle gheny, voted with Mr. Graham in the negative. JUDICIAL APPORTIONMENT. Mr. Bardick Will Probably Introduce His Measure in the Honse To-Day. IFROM A ETAFF CORRESPONDENT.! Harrisburg, April 21. Tho House judicial apportionment bill is now ready, and will probably be introduced by Mr. Burdick to morrow. All the Western districts are left as at present, except that Clarion and Jefferson are separated aud each given a jndge, and that Cameron is taken from Elk and Clinton and Potter from McKean and made into a separate district. It differs somewhat from the bill introduced in the Senate by Mr. Williamson. Fayette and Greene are given two judges instead of ono. Fulton is taken from Bedford and Somerset and added to Huntingdon. Lawrence is left attached to Butler. Allegheny county is given nine common pleas judges, as contemplated in the bill now pending giving her three addi tional judges. Philadelphia is given extra common pleas judges and one orphan court judge- FREE TlXr BOOKS. That Clause of the Educational BUI Still Pending In the House. FROM A STAFF CORRESPONDENT. Harrisburg, April 2L Mr. Farr's compul sory education bill came up on third reading to-day. and was amended by striking out Mr. Lvtle's amendment authorizing the State Superintendent of Instruction to furnish freo text books upon the requisition of the direc tors of each school district. There was a dis position to kill the bill, but Mr. Farr made an eloquent plea for it, setting forth its necessity, and it went over. Durlog the discussion, while amendments were being offered and withdrawn. Speaker Thompson said that It seemed to him as though no one in the Honso knew what they wanted, unless it was the book agents whom he saw on the floor. The silence which fol lowed this statement from the chair was al most oppressive. LIVELY POLITICAL CX2CUS Predicted This Fall if the Baker Ballot BiU Doos Xot Tas. IFROM A STAFF CORRESPONDENT.

Binney, representing the Ballot Reform Association ot Philadelphia, was here to-day, and arranged for a hearing on the Baker ballot oill beforo the Senate Election Committee on Thursday even ing.

I am glad to know that it is not only a gateway of commerce, but a gateway ot friendship cries of 'Hear, hear and choers; that not only do tho hurrying vehicles of commerce bear the products of tho fields and mines in mutual exchange, but tlmy have facilitated those personal relations which have promoted and must yet more promote the friendliness of two independent liberty-loving peoples. Cheers. I receive with great satis faction these tributes of respect which have been bronght to me Trom the Governor of Chi huahua and the representatives of the army of Mexico. Cheers. I desire to return to them, and throngb them to the people of Mexico, and to that illustrious and progressive statesman who presides over her destinies cheers, not only my sincere personal regard, but an assur ance of the friendliness and respect of the American Government and the American peo ple. I look forward with interest to a larger development of our trade; to the opening of new lines of commerce aud new avenues of friendship. We have passed that year in our history, I hope, when we were aggressive and unpleasant neighbors. We do not covet the territory ot any of tho other people cheers, but do covet their friendship and those trade exchanges which are mutually probtable. Cheers. A Homily on Good Citizenship. And now to you, my fellow citizens, I bring congratulations for the rapid development which you are makiog here, and extend the most cordial good wishes for the realization of every hope you have for El Paso and its neigh borhood. Cheers. All republics are budded on the respect and confidence of tbo people. "All commerce and trade rest npoh tho foundation of social order. You cannot at tract an increased citizenship except as you give to the world a reputation for social order. Cries of 'Good, good' and cheers, 1 am glad to meet my comrades of tho Grand Army of the Republic cheers; that the survivors of tho grand struggle for tbo Union, which was one of the few wars in history that brought "blessings to the victors and vanquished;" that was followed by no proscriptions, but by the re ceiving again of those who had striven for the destrnction of the country into friendly citi zenship, laying upon them no yoke that wasn't borne by those veterans that of obedience to the law and a due respect for the slits of others." Cheers, Governor Prince, of New Mexico, joined the President at Kl Paso, aud the next place where the train stopped was this city.
