Xevrs of Interest
Pat Powers, the new manager of the New
York club, arrived in the city yesterday,
presumably to have a talk with Dick Buck
ley, but really to try and sign Charley
King to pitch for the 2sew York club next
year. As a result the manager and player
came to terms, but King declined to sign
The pair had a long conversation, chiefly
because King's terms were too high in the
estimation o" Manager Powers. Finally,
the latter accepted the figures of the "Silver-haired"
young man, and a contract was
made out, and it was then that King hesi
tated until he had a conversation with some
friends. He finally concluded
To Close the Deal To-Day,
the understanding being that Manager
Powers is to wire King this morning for
King's reply. The reply will be that he,
King, accepts the terms and will.&ign the
Last evening King was asked by the
writer it the above statement was correct,
and he replied: "Every word is true. I
have made up my mind to sign with the
Xew York club next year. Sly terms are
high, but Mr. Powers has consented to
pay the money, and I will let him know-to-morrow
that the business is settled. The
Pittsburg club has no claim on my ser
vices. The directors released me, which
meant that they did not care whether I
played here or not. I, therefore, had to
look out for myself, and they will get a
good man in my place."
There cannot but be a general regret at
the loss of King to the local club. All
along it has been thought that he would
certainly stay here, as the Association had
blacklisted him, and that other League
clubs would keep their hands oft him, so as
to give Pittsburg a chance to get him at a
a much reduced salary.
Hopes are Blighted.
These expectations, according to King's
present intention, have fallen short, and as
a result tne Jew lorK cluo will get a good
pitcher, and Pittsburg, by its own foolish
action, will lose one. It is quite true that
the local club directors have been strongly
wishing that King was signed by them.
And it is also a fact that one of the reasons
that Mark Baldwin is not yet signed is to
prevent other pitchers from comparing his
salary with what is offered them. It may
be said with safety that the loss of King
will be felt to a greater extent than many
people think. He has acted perfectly
within the limits of right, and very likely
he will be a good gamer.
Manager Powers also had a long conver
sation with Catcher Buckley. He declined
to talk business with the manager at pres
ent, because Yon der Ahe has a 15-day op
tion on Buckler's services. That is, Buck
ley has given Yondy his terms, and Vondy
lias 15 days to accept or reject them. Glass
cock has a similar agreement w ith Yon der
Ahe. Mr. Powers went to "Wheeling last
evening to visit Glasscock.
The Xew York manager stated that there
will be a good team in yew York, as some
of the bet players in the countrv are ap
plying to sign contracts with the club.
GaWin and Swartwood Sign.
Galvin also had a lone; conference with
Director Kerr, of the local club, but noth
ing definite was done. It is probable, how
ever, that Galvin will sign to play here.
Mr. Kerr made him an ofler which was in
tended to cover Jimmy's claim of f 500. Old
Sport declined to accept it, but stated that
he would let Mr. Kerr know definitely
about the matter Friday. Jimmy will be
in Chicago to-morrow and will then con
sider offers from that club. His claim of ?J00
was satisfactorily adjusted. He is to receive
3,000 lor next season, at least so report
says. He speaks highly of Mr. Kerr as a
And Ed Swartwood was also signed at
Director Kerr's house last evening. Ed
will play right field, Corkhill, center and
Honloa left; at least that is the present ar
rangement. During the past season Swart
wood played excellent ball.
ALL WAXT PEACE.
Great Gathering or ltaseball Magnates in
. New York Interesting Opinions Ex
pressed Regarding the Situation Al
Johnson Said to Ho on Deck Again to
Help Jim Mntrie.
New York, Nov. 10. Svccial The
city is now well crowded with baseball
magnates of League and Association. The
League will meet to-morrow, and rumors
are now numerous that great efforts will be
made to arrange peace between the two or
ganizations. The following opinions on the
matter were expressed by the various mag
nates: William Barnie, who coaxed Iiicbardson
and Conner an ay from New York, said:
"Yes, I'm in favor of peace, if it can be se
cured on equitable terms. Otherwise I am
for a fight.
George AV. Vafrner, brother of J. Earl
Wagner, remarked: "The prospect for an
Association team here is bright, but it all
depends on crounds. Mr. Prince, of Bos
ton, has subscribed fo.OOO toward a club
here, and I think the Association can be de
pended upon for 525,000. Mr. Elliott, Yice
President and attorney of our club, called
on Mr. Spalding this morning and bought
the ten shares of stock owned by Roger
Conner. AVc shall attend the meetings of
the New York club in the future, and learn
how a League club is conducted.
Gus Schmelz said he was there as a mem
ber of the Circuit Committee. Columbus is
kicking hard against being thrown out of
the Association, an event of which they
stand in deadly fear.
T. S. Elliott said the 12-club idea would
not be entertained in Philadelphia. He
didn't see how it could be worked. He was,
in favor of an honorable peace.
"When Chris Von der Ahe was asked what
he tiiought of the 12-club idea, he said:
"That needs study. I don't think I'm in
favor of it. I'm in favor of peace if it can
be secured on an equitable basis. "We
ought to get back to the days when the
spring and fall games between the two
bodies netted so much money. This seems
t'i be a game of freeze-out, and it's a ques
tion which can stand it longest It's hurt
ing the game and should be stopped. The
Association Peace Committee is still iu ex
istence, and is ready to meet the League.
But if the League insists on a war to the
knife we shall meet them. If it comes to'
a battle the Association will start a sporting
goods manufactory in opposition to the
Spaldings. No matter what the Associa
tion does none of its clubs will be thrown
down. If it is necessarv to get rid of one
club it will be bought out"
"When E. B. Talcott was asked what he
thought of the prospects of an Association
team here he laughed and said: "The idea
is absurd. I don't believe anybody with
common sense would think o'f attempting to
put a team in here with the certainty of a
bitter fight wjh the League team. Thev
would not only have to 50 to great expense
for grounds, but would nave to guarantee
salaries of plavers, and big salaries at that
It would entail a risk of 575,000 or $100,000,
without the slightest prospect of getting a
cent on the investment, and I donH know
anybody who would assume such a risk at
J. AV. Spalding remarked: "lam not at
all uneasy over the talk of an Association
team here. If they do put a team in this
city, which is very improbable, they will
get all the fight they want. I think the 12
club plan is a good one, and I think it will
be earnestly pushed."
It is asserted that the chief backer of
Mutrie in his effort to organize an Associa
tion team is Al Johnson, who took an active
part in the Brotherhood revolt.
MOTBIE AND DAY MEET.
Jeems Says Ho la Sorry to Have to Fight
Against His Friend.
New York, Nov. 10. Special Presi
dent Day, "Jim" Mutrie and Manager
Powers met in Mr. Day's office yesterday.
Pow ers said that he was sorry to be obliged
to take Mutrie's place, but as the position
was offered to him he accepted it Mutrie
replied that he did not care and had no
feeling in the matter. He had laid his
plans for an Association team to be placed
in Gotham, fully expecting to be "bounced"
by the League cltfb". He had had backing
oilcred him for a new team as far back as
Turning to President Day, Mutrie, with
a smile, said: "I am sorry to leave you, Mr.
Day, after so many yearsof friendly associa
tion. It will seem odd to be fighting you."
President Day smiled significantly and re
marked: "Well, Jim, we have not begnn to
fight yet," with an intimation that there
can be no war unless two armies are in the

New York. Nov. 10. ferial Definite
word from John L. Sullivan, concerning a
match with Paddy Slavin, was received to
day by Charley Johnston, of Brooklyn. It
came in the form of a letter, which reads as
The Baldwin Hotel. )
Saw Fra.-cisco, Nov. 2, 1891.
Friend Citabley I thought I would drop
you a line to let you know I am in God's
country onco more. I did not really have
the courage to write you from Australia. It
is the worst hole in the world. I wish you
would make n match, for me with Slavin, to
come off in the latter part of September or
tlio middle of October, for tlio largest
purso offered, and a side bet of the greatest
amount tlio other side will put up. You are

and his party to the cross. Whatever you do
in this matter will be agreeable tome, as you
know how to make a match without any
' Jomr L. Sullivan.
Johnston went to the Illustrated JVeics
office and told Editor Lumley that he was
ready to put up ?2,500 to bind the match
with' the Australian. "Don't lose time,"
said Johnston, "the quicker the thing is
done the better." Lumley lost no time,
and the money was put up at once. With
the forfeit was this challenge:'
Sew York Nov. 10, 1S9L On behalf of
John L. Sullivan, who has empowered me
to arrange a match with Frank Slavin for
the championship of the woild and aa much
more as the Australian can possibly raise,
I challenge the said Mr. Slavin to meet the
champion in a fair stand up fight, the battle
to tike place in America, before some re
sponsible club who will offer the largest
purse," the match to take place in the latjer
part of September or early part of October,
under the recognized rule. To show my
earnestness I herewith deposit $2,500, to re
main cp until January 1, 1S92.
QUITE A HOVEL PLAH.
If Steve Farrell Beats tlio American Record
He 'Will Get the Stake.
The backers of Smith and Farrell met
yesterday afternoon to try and settle the
difficulty relative to last Saturday's foot
race at Recreation Park. After consider
able discussion it was agreed that if Farrell
can run 300 yards on the track at New Cas
tle in 31! seconds Smith's backer, John
Quinn, will allow Farrell to have all the.
stake money up for last Saturday's race.
This arrangement was come to because
Quinn claimed that Smith had run 300
yards in 31 seconds in a trial on the track
named. That time is a quarter second bet
ter than the American record, so that Far
rell has quite a task before lim, but he is
confident of doing it The distance that
Smith ran at New Castle was marked otT,
and if it is found to be short Farrell will
get the money without running. If Farrell
tails to accomplish his task each party will
get their 500 back. If the track is wet
the trial won't be made until the weather
and track are favorable. The plan of set
tlement is certainly a unique one, and pre
sumably Farrell has all the worst ot it.
Erring Will Stay.
Cincinnati, Nov. 10. Captain "William
Ewing is at his Tiome here, unmoved by the
exciting events that are taking place at the
metropolis. New York will certainly see
him in harness next season. "Will I play
ball for the New Yorks?" he asked in re
sponse to a query of a Sun correspondent.
"Well, I guess yes. My arm is as good as
it ever was on everything except quick snap
throws. I am suree it will come arouud all
right next spring. About the middle of
January I will start for the Hot Springs,
and I will stay there until the opening of
the baseball season. If the waters there
could cure Latham's crooked arm they can
benefit mine. We will have a team in New
York, and a good one at that You can
wager that Richardson and Glasscock will
be with the New Yorks. There is where
they want to play, and both are under con
tract to the New York club. Itichardson is
signed for three years with the New York
club; so is Glasscock. I would as well see
John Eeilly on first base as Itoger Connor.
John Ewing is as good as signed. He will
stick to New York. I think the Leaeue
race next season will be better .than it was

THE EFFECTS OF A VERY BAD RULE.

Leading University Aggregations.
GENERAL SPORTING NEWS OP THE DAT
New Yokk, Nov. 10. Special The
famous football team of the Manhattan Ath
letic Club, which has made such a brilliant
record, disbanded for the season last night.
Never before .was an amateur athletic
organization able to get together such a
crack eleven as the Manhattans turned out
this fall, and some football authorities even
went so far as to predict that, with a little
practice, it would beat any team in the
That it was a rattling good one was shown
in the way in which it defeated the Columbia
College eleven in such hollow style and the
wonderfully fine game it played against the
When the Manhattans joined the Ameri
can Football Union and entered their eleven
it was thought by many good judges that
the championship emblem would be seen
floating from the cherry diamond's club
house at the end of the season.
Passed a Bad Rule.
The Manhattan men felt confident it
would, and backed their opinion with their
money. The action of the union, however,
24"hours before the first game in passing a
rule prohibiting the Manhattan"? best play
ers from competing knocked all the calcula
tions out, for the M. A. C. officials, believ
ing that their clubmates had been unfairly
treated, sent in the club's resignation from
The action of the union greatly discour
ased the men and if it hadn't been for the
objectionable rule the team would still be
playing in the union series. The union's
position in the matter has been severely
criticised. The rule which made the Man
hattan men angry compelled every player
on a team in the championship games to re
side within 100 miles or the club which he
represented. This shuts out Ames, the
famous full back, and "Spor" Donnelly,
uasn ana Liilly, ot .Princeton s champion
eleven, who reside in Chicago, and Vhom
the Manhattans depended upon for the best
of their playing.
Many who admitted that the rule itself
was a good one thought that the union acted
very unfairly in passing it on such short
notice and alter the Manhattans stated that
the players mentioned would be on its
Harvard Wonld't Play.
The Manhattans must have believed they
had a rattling good team, for immediately
after the club withdrew from the union a
challenge was sent to the Harvard football
eleven to play them for a cup of the value
ofS250. The Manhattan eleven went into
active training under the care of "Jim,"
Robinson for the proposed game with the
Cambridge men. Practice games were
played on Manhattan field under the elec
tric light, and the boys had got down to
good, steady team worlL "Jim" Robinson
was very much pleased with, the way in
which his men were playing and felt confi
dent of their ability to whip Harvard.
"Jim" and his playerswcre very much
crestfallen yesterday when they were in
formed that the Harvard was unable to
arrange the game and, having no more im
portant games on hand, they decided to dis
band. "Jim" said last night that he will
turn out two teams next season that will
make a great record. He will see to it that
the first 11 of the club will be on the field
early and in first-class condition when the
big games begin.
THANKSGIVING DAY'S GAME.
The Auction Sale of tickets Is Proving; a
New York, Nov. 10. Special S. J.
Cornell, who has the management of the
Thanksgiving Day game of football between
Yale and Princeton at Manhattan Field, has
been besieged during the past few davs by
people desirous of securing seats.
The auction sale on Saturday night was
voted a tremendous success. The pre
miums on boxes, coach stalls and choice
seats reached big figures in nearly every
case. Everything left over after the auc
tion sale Saturday night was placed on sale
at the box ofilce of the Manhattan Athletic
Club Theater, Madison avenue and Forty
fifth street Captain Cornell adheres strictly
to his rule to sell tickets only to those who
wish them for their own use and that of
their immediate families. This has the re
sult of almost entirely shutting out the
speculators. The latter, however, resort to
every artifice to secure tickets. Thev make
written requests over different names and
give them to Mutual District messenger
boys to procure tickets. Captain Cornelfin
every instance refused to honor any such re
quests and the ticket speculators were com
pletely left and the followers of Yale and
Princeton were given the best of the bar
gain. At 5 o'clock last night the covered
grand stand was entirely sold out, not a
single seat being left Therefore the onlv
chance that remains for the Princeton and
Yale graduates to secure seats is to make
application to President Wright at Yale
and President Farrand at Princeton.
Every private box and all coach and car- l
iiutgc Dynuu uiM utcu euiu. iiiv saie oi seats
upon open reserved stand "D" will begin
at the Manhattan Athletic Club Theater
ticket office at 9 o'clock this morning.
Capt Cornell has decided not to sell any
admission tickets until three days before
Thanksgiving. This is to preventany coun
terfeit tickets being made. The tickets have
been printed by the American Bank Note
Company and will of course be hard toe mn
terfeit tickets there will be a large force of
detectives employed to prevent the sale of
any in the event of their being offered for
sale, and the public is warned not to buy
admission tickets except at certain
Capt. Cornell has received fabulous offers
for reserved seats, private boxes and coach
spaces, but he cannot furnish them.
The indications are that the attendance at
this year's game will be the greatest ever
known in the annals of American sports.
THE YALE ELEVEN.
A Conple or Changes Made in the Team to
, Make Matters Better,
New Haven, Conn., Nov. 10. Captain
McClung-and Josh Hartwell made a couple
of changes in the Yale eleven to-day as a
result of their visit to Harvard and Phila
delphia on Saturday. Winter was trans
ferred from left to right tackle, changing
places with AVallis. The move was made
with a view to the Harvard game for the
purpose of putting Wallis against Upton
and Winter against Newell. Newell proved
too much for Wallis last year, and this year
will be assigned to Winter, who is phvsical
ly a much more powerful man.
Hartwell was taken from left and placed
at right, his old positfon being taken by
Hinckey, who was thought to be too light
to face "Slugger" Mason, of Harvard.
Hartwell held a conference with" Stagg
affer Saturday's game at Cambridge, and
learned the details of the trick by which
Stagg scored against Harvard. It was tried
at the field practice this afternoon and
worked like a charm. A run of 20 yards
through the center and a touchdown re
sulted. Crosby was taken from the 'Varsity this
afternoon and placed in the scrub eleven.
It is prettv certain that the make up of the
team which will lace Princeton and Harvard
will be as follows: Hinckey, left end;
Wallis, left tackle; Hcffelfinger, left guard;
Stillman, center: Morrison, right guard;
Winter, right tackle; Hartwell, right end;
Barbour, quarter back; McClung, left half
back; C. Bliss, right half back, and Mc
Cormick, full back.
AN AWFUL DISBUPTION.
Association Football Kickers Take Action
and Jeopardize the League.
There is an awful disruption in the West
ern Pennsylvania Football League. A gen
eral meeting of that organization was held
last evening in the Natatorium to hear four
protests.regarding games played, and as a
result all the protests were sustained, and
Secretary Macpherson intends to resign.
Probably never in the history of athletic
organizations were more stupid and illogical
decisions arrived at. Pittsburg seemed to
be the target of everybody's envy under all
circumstances. Even decisions that had
been made by referees on their own judg
ment and observation were reversed and
discarded. It didn't need a violation of
rule last evening to cause the majority to
"sit" on the referee of any protested game;
it only needed somebody to say that the
referee saw a play different to somebody
else who was opposing the Pittsburg team
and that settled it
In one instance, a protest was sustained
simply because Secretary Macpherson had
appointed a Pittsburg man to referee a
Pittsburg game. The referee in question
was Fred Goodwyn, a gentleman whom
every team in the League has desired to of
ficiate for them. ' The contestingteams were
the Pittsburgs and the McDonalds. The
latter were beaten and hence their wail.
But there is no rule demanding that the
referee of any game shall or shall not reside
at any particular place. In view of this
fact Mr. Macpherson took the decision as an
insult to himself, and he could not well do
otherwise. And let it be said that he has
done more for the League than any four
men in it. He stated last evening that he
is determined to wash his hands of the en
The protests were: Bloomfield protested
against a game won by Pittsburg by 4 to 1.
No goal was protested," but the protest was
sustained simply because the majority
thought the referee, an old football player,
was incompetent The game will be played
over on the first open date.
New Castle protested a game won by
Homestead, the protest referring to a dis
puted goal. The protest was sustained. The
game will be played next Saturday at
. Bloomfield protested a game given to
McDonald because the former had gone to
the wrong grounds and consequently were
not at the grounds selected for the game.
Protest sustained and the game will be
played at McDonald next Saturday.
McDonald protested a game won by Pitts
burg, 3 to 2. Protest sustained.
As a result the Pittsburg team,by an evi
dent conspiracy, has been dragged down
from a close second to a tie for last place.
This is not creditable to those who soTin
fairly aided in the work.
GOOD WOEK AT PEINCET0N.
The University Kickers Do Some Excellent
Practice and Feel All Right.
Princeton, N. J., Nov. 10. On the foot
ball field to-day the University 11 took its
usual practice game. All the members ot
the 'Varsity participated in the game and
showed themselves not much the worse for
wear from the game -played with the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania on last Saturday.
About 45 minntes were played without in
termission. The first part of the game was
very snappy, and- the 'Varsity had prettv
much its own way in rushing the ball
down the field, but the latter part was
characterized by much loose work, and the
'Varsity barely escaped a score being made
against it. When time was called the ball
was on the 'Varsitv'a five-yard line.
Three touchdowns were made. Homans
made one unsuccessful attempt at goal from
field. Alexander Moffitt, '85, did the coach

versity of Pennsylvania on Saturday the
following congratulatory telegram was re
ceived yesterday, addressed to Princeton
College and signed "Harvard": "A glori

they did against Princeton.

about with a movement that resembled the actions
of an elephant begging peanuts of a crowd of chil

and many an old timer was fooled."

A meetixq was held yesterday In the Monon

States Engineer, and Commander Sbeppard, of the

Merrill and Commander bheppard are on a commit
tee appointed to examine Into the manner of light
ing bridges on the Monongabrla and Allegheny
rivers. Captains John A. Vi ood, W. B. Rodger.
A. J. Gould, Mallory, Boles, Bowman and Nelson
testified before the committee and also made short
speeches. Captain Woods suggested an electric
lamp be placed at the Davis Island dam. Colonel
Merrill stated that the best way to secure that
would be to petition the Secretary of War, which
will probably be done. The. rlvermen want reglaU
on bridges instead of the present arc lights.
The Mnch-Desired Free Bridge Across
to the Sohthside
MAY BE COSSTEUCTED NEXT YEAR.
Another Hundred Thousand Will Probably
GOOD PROSPECTS FOR THE NEW AEM0EI
In all probability the proposed free bridge
across the Monongahela river will be well
under way at this time next year. Possibly
it will be completed. In the appropriation
of last spring 150,000 vras set aside .for
bridges. Of this ?30,000 was used for the
Larimer and Forward avenue bridges, leav
ing $100,000 for the Monotigahela bridge.
This amount, it was understood, was to be
set aside and additional appropriations made
to it each year until enough money was se
cured to build the bridge. From present
estimates it looks as though next year's ap
propriation will be sufficient. Controller
Morrow said yesterday:
"The money set aside for the "bridge to
the Southstde is treated as a reserve fund
and will not be allowed to revert to the
sinking fund as other amounts are when not
used up at the end of the fiscal year. It
will be held for the purpose intended until
the fund is large enough to accomplish the
desired end. If a bridge can be built for
$200,000 it can be started earljrnext spring,
as Councils will doubtless set aside another
$100,000 for that purpose in the next appro
Bridges Much Cheaper.
"A bridge can be built for $150,000 or
$200,000" said A. F. Keating, "unless the
city desires to go into the matter very deeply
and erect something beyond the ordinary.
Bridges are much cheaper now than they
used to be."
On October 12 Mr. Benz introduced in Se
lect Conncil the following resolution:
WnEUKAS, Councils ppropriated$100,000 for
the purpose of buildiuj; or buying a bridge
across the Monongahcla river; and
Whereas, It appears that no active steps
have been taken to ascertain wunt measures
are necessary to bring about this much
needed free communication between the
Old City and Southside; therefore, be it
Resolved, That a committee of five, two
from Select and three from Common Coun
cils, in conjunction with the Chief of the
Department of Public Works, be appointed
for the purpose of ascertaining all neces
sary information about buying or locating
and building a free bridge acrosj aforesaid
river, and all other preliminaries to carry
on the aforesaid project, and report the
same to Councils within CO days from date
It passed both branches and the following
Councilmen were appointed on the commit
tee: Messrs. Benz, Robertson, Flinu, Fox
and Taggert. So far as conld be learned
yesterday this committee has not held a
meeting yet. Thirty days remain before its
report will be due.
A Contest in Sight.
As to the location of the bridge no action
has been taken and few suggestions have
yet been made. Chief Bigelow said yester
day it would depend largely on what the
people of the Southside want. The bridge
will be chiefly for their benefit and they
will have most to say about where it shall
be. The vicinity of Soho on even farther
up the river has been spoken of owing to
the fact that it would provide a short route
from the Southside to. Schenley Park and
the Carnegie Library. Property owners in
various parts of the Sonthsule are anxious
to have the bridge near them and a lively
contest is expected before the site will be
Another prospective improvement in the
city is a new armory building where the
old Fifth Avenue Market House now
stands. A well-known military man said
yesterday the project had not been dropped
by any means. Several causes, which he
did not care to speak about, have delayed
matters thus far, but the prospect for a start
in the work before many months is

There is a corset jthat never
breaks in wear; it cannot be
broken in wear.
No; that's going a little too
far. There have to be steels
in it- Steels will break. We
don't mean the steels; but they
are not the part that troubles
What we mean is the "bones"
don't break. The reason is
they are Kabo, not bones at
all; and Kabo doesn't break
This corset that never breaks
is the Kabo, mysterious Kabo,
wonderful Kabo. Let every
corset-breaker make the ac
quaintance of Kabo.
If the corset doesn't suit you
after wearing a week or two or
three, bring it back to us and
get your money; and, if the
Kabo breaks or kinks in a year,
come back for your money.
This should be guarantee
enough to sell hundreds of these
Corsets every day. Will it?
It's for you to say.
