GENERAL STORTING NEWS OP THE DAT
nrEC7AI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Cincinnati, March IS. On the eve of
Lis departure for Virginia, Captain Ewing,
of the Xew York Baseball Club, was running
over some of the notably strong and weak
points in the makeup of the 12 clubs.
"Frankly," said he, "I believe New York
would have Bad a better chance to nail the
flag if we had been awarded Dan Richard
son, but we are goinij to surprise some of
these scoffers. I wish they could have seen
the way 'Shorty Fuller played at Hot
Springs. T'eople up at the polo grounds
will forget that there ever was such a man
as Glasscock. "Where do I think the Giants
will land? "Well, not below third, to my
mind. The Bostons are very 6trong, but if
their pitchers fail you can't tell how far
they'll drop. I believe Clarkson has seen
his best days. Jack Stivetts will strengthen
them wonderfully. He is one of the best
pitchers in the country to-day."
About the Keds.
"Cincinnati has in Elton Chamberlain
one of the coolest heads in the business.
He never succumbs to the rattles and keeps
putting them over the plate in just the
same manner, no matter whether one or 20
hits has been scored against him. There is
one club upon which it will be well to keep
your eye," continued Captain Ewing, "and
that is Cleveland. That team is a corker
and it is not making much of a stir about it
either. In Davies thev have secured the
niot nf -VWcipm nit-Wi Thpir r,ifiM 5

iioi-ciubb uuu jiul luuiw ui uie a iue uic
fixed behind the bat. Charley Zimmer is as
good an every-day catcher as there is anv
w here and Jack O'Connor is just a, shade
below him. Jesse Burkett has proved to be
a great acquisition. I look for Cleveland to
be in the thick of the fight and away up in
the first division. I can see nothing ahead
lor Chicago. Xow that 1'fefler is gone the
infield is lamentably weak.
Anson Will Miss rfeffer.
"No one will miss Pfefler more than
'Old Anse," for everybody knows that he
has not been playing first base well for a
couple of seasons! His slugging is all that
has kept him in the game. The Michigan
man, Kalkaska Pipp, is a physical giant,
but he is as awkward as a Cherrv Hill belle
would be at a ball of the '400.' He does
not seem to be able to get down after a
grounder, and he uses his hands as if they
were a pair of scoops. 'Anse' has landed a
a good man in ileeker, that Sioux City
pitcher. He is showing up well, and will
be able to help Hutchinson out.
"When vou come to specify all the clubs
it is a bit dangerous, forthere are more than
half a dozen favorites to rate In the first
Captain Ewing went no farther, but
added that the race would be one of the
prettiest in the history of the game.
QUITE A SCHEME.
Schaefer and Carton to Establish a Billiard
Academy in Paris.
Chicago, March 13. Special Jake Schae
fer is going to Paris to show the Frenchmen
bow billiards should be played. He is going
to show them in his own academy, too. The
success that Eugene Carter has had in the
French capital has tempted Jake to make a
bold move and face the French lion in his
den, as it were. He and Billy Catton, than
whom there is no shrewder man in sporting
circles, have figured out a scheme which, for
audacity and originality, rivals anvthing
attempted in sporting circles of late years.
After next Saturday's match with Frank
Ives, should Jake win, ho will accept Slos
Bon's challenge. With this game out of the
wav he and Catton will sail for Paris and
open an academy of their own, where they
wiUbc leady to meet, all comers in their
lcspectlve classes lorany amount of money.
Faii" is now the Mecca of billiardists and
the Americans expect to mnko some money
out ot tlicli scheme. Jake will not neglect
his business here, but will probably make
periodical trips to the French capital. If
the academy is a success Catton will prob
ably locate in Paris permanentlv and run
the place. He and Jake are a trifle rusty in
their French, but w ill probably pick it up
It ti ill be curious to note how the French
experts will take this move. They are snch.
a jealous narrow -minded lot, it is said, that
they will probably raise a dreadful cry when
they find the Wizard in their midst. Even,
however, should they attempt to boycott
the loom, Jake feels that there are enough
Americans in Paris to make the place a suc
cess. THE SHOW ENDED.
One of the Most (successful Dog Exhibi
tions Ever Held in Pittsburg Closes.
The dog show is ended and its termination
winds up the best dog show ever held in
Western Pennsylvania. The attendance ha9
been larger and the quality of dogs better
than ever seen in Pittsburg in the history of
local dog shows.
It is pleasing to know that some of the
most prominent winners were local compet
itors. John Moorhead, with his Strcatham
Monarch, won no less than live prizes. The
dog is bevond doubt one of tho best bull ter
i iers in the world and George llaper says so.
John Carson also camo in for gjoryniong
the bull terriers, and his Billy Bulger, bred
by J. C Mahler, of this city, is one of the
fine-t young dogs ever shown here. In
short, all the local dogs were good.
The management deserve all credit pos
sible. That veteran of Judges. Mr. David
sou, said last night that he had never seen a
better managed show. The success of the
piesent show, or the show that ended last
evening makes it certain that Pittsburg will
he a competitor lor tne pest snow in Amer
Almost all the Cogs wero taken from the
citv last evening. Some were iold here and
will remain in the city.
STOPPED THE FIGHT.
Dally and Deacon Jones Havo a Long
Tight nnd Aro Mopped.
San Fracisco, March 18. In a finished
fight at the Pacific Club between Harry
Dally, of Australia, and "Deacon" Jones of
San Francisco, colored, bantam, referee Sul
livan announced at the end of tho slxty
hixth round that the police had declared
their intention of stopping the fight if ho
(referee) did not stop it, and he accordingly
called the tight and wagers off. Dally did the
most of the leading during the light, and
Jones' face is badly disfigured.
For the last 20 rounds little was done, the
men making various excuses for not con
tinuing. A ten-round contest between George La
vlgne. or Michigan, and Charley Bochello,
San Franciscocather weights, was decided
in favor ot Lavigne. Both men fought them
selves to a standstill in the tenth round.
C. W. Williams Declines to Trot Allerton
Against Axtell at Present.
Gras-d RAriDS, March 18. The great $20,000
stallion race booked.for the August meeting
is declared off, word having been received
from a W. Williams, owner or Allerton, de
clining to enter the race. He says that be is
afraid that should ho tiring Allertoji hero
and enter him in the race with Axtell
against liim the other horses would crowd
him in favor or AxtelL
He will theiefore not take Allerton away
from home until he has met Axtell alone.
The horsemen. have therefore given up the
Mg $20,000 race and substituted a $10,000 stake
for stallions. The preparations for the other
eventsare progressing in a most satisfactory
STILL BELIEVES IK MAHEB.
Billy Madden Thinks the Irish Champion
Will lo Better Next Time.
Srw York, March 18. The news may as
tonish a good many people, hut the fact re
mains that Billy Madden sticks to Peter
Maher, and will try to get another match for
the Irishman. Said Madden to-night:
'I have had to tate an awful scoring on
Maher, hut I am not yet satisfied that my
critic know as much as I do or as they think
they do. I still believe that Peter Maher is a
bo.vor capable of besting plenty of chaps
who aspire higher than their prayers com
prehend. Peter is terribly sore now and I
think the experience he had in New Orleans
has been a good thing lor him. Anvhow, I
am willing, in the face of all hostile criti
cism, to do something nioro for him. He has
promised to abido by my directions here
after, and I am going to take a chance. I
think you will hearfiom Maher yet."
A majoritv of the sports who backed
Maher have been congratulating themselves
ever since tho Fitzsimmons mill that the
Irishman did not happen to put Fitz ont in
that first round when the Sow Zealander
was so nearly ruined of his senses, and was
onlv saved by the ringing of the gong.
"Ir Maher had knocked liira out with that
Sunch," they say, "we would all have gone
roke on him when ho met the next man,
whether that next was Sullivan or anybody
else. Forewarned was forearmed this trip,
HALL AND FITZSDOI0NS.
The Vanquisher or Maher Is Not Keady for
XewYohk, March IS. fipecia?. In reply
to Warden Lewis' challenge on bebalt of Jim
Hall, Bob Fitzsimmons said yesterday that
he would only meet Hall at 153 pounds,
"which," he added, "Is four pounds above
middle-weight, and is all J will give away. I
am a middle-weight and do not intend to
fight out of my class. Moreover, the stake
of $5,000 is not enough. There must be $10,000
a side when I meet Hall. But there is no use
in talking about it so long as catch weight is
mentioned. Beside, I want to rest a while
before flchting asrain."
When Fltz's words were repeated to War
ren Lewis he remarked that Fitz vias afraid
of Hall, and will put forward any excuses
that catnc to mind to prevent meeting him.
"He is inconsistent, though," continued
Lewis, "and his own statements convict
him. He wants to fight in his class, yet he
gave away ten pounds or mora to" Peter
Maher, the heavy-weight Ho w ants a stake
of $10,000 a side, and also wants a rest, yet he
is quoted as being anxious to make a match
at once with Ted Pritchard for a purse.
That kind of talk is easily seen thiough, and
I think the public will easily see
Lewis did not take down his forfeit of
9UWU. Jimmycarroll stated in the Hoffman
on Thrirsdav nicht that he would like
to match Fitzsimmons against Charley
C0EBETT HAS FRIENDS.
Some Cincinnati People llave a Notion to
Follow James' Fortunes.
Everybody does not forsake Corbett in his
proposed battle with Sullivan. Tho Times
Star has this to say about it:
There is no denying the fact that "Pompa
dour Jim" Corbett will have a lot of Cincin
nati folk on his staff all pulling for him to
win on the fateful day September 7 which
will make or break John L. Sullivan. In
the places where the lovers of pugilistic
sports congregate, talk is already running
largely to that event so many months away.
The Jackson-Slavin contest at the National
Clnb in London, late in May, pales in com
parison. "One thing is sure," remarked
"Pete" Nolan, of fistic fume, this morning,
"Corbett is tho only one who would face
Sullivan. The big fellow ought to win if he
can get into condition, Dut a plan cannot
keep np the gait at which ho is reported as
traveling and not suffer. Sporting life will
"do" the best of them. You couldn't drag
Charley Mitchell Into a ring with Sullivan.
Show me a time that he has ever made a
fight? He got Sullivan to give him the best
ol overvthimr. and then led him a foot race
over in France. Corbett is plucky. He will
have to fight and he knows it. He could not
pursue Mitchell's tactics when ho opposed
Sullivan for an instant. The crowd w ouldn't
THE ETOAWAY B0XEBS.
Mitchell and Slavln Go Home in a Now
Direction to England.
New York, March IS. Special Charley
Mitchell and Paddy Slavin have made up
their minds that the atmosphere of the
United States is unhealthy at this season,
and they will avoid it by goinjr back to Eng
land from Canada, bj- tho way of Halifax.
They had an engagement in this city for
next week, but canceled it. When this
news became knowti yesterday it was tho
almost universal opinion that Mitchell and
Slavin did not have the nerro to face any
Their recent bluff at Sullivan would have
been referred to with too much frequencv
to have been tolerated even by the experi
enced Mitchell, and the pair of travelers
made up their minds to go home", especially
as the champion is now matched and
further flings for advertisement in his di
rection would have been out of the ques
tion. During the week Mitchell has had
something to say about Sullivan at his exhi
bitions in Canada, and Paddy Slavin has
two or three times tried a hand in the same
line. But the chance for that game has now
departed, and the couple of talkers deter
mined to do likewise. Corbett and Jim Daly
will fill out the engagement made by the
TRYING FOB BAY2X0HD.
He May Be Signed To-Day Because Denny
Cannot Be ITound.
The management of the local ball club
have not heard from Jerry Denny and they
cannot discover where he is. They want a
man to take third vase so as to use Farrell as
a utility man. Consequently they are now
dickering with Raymond. Henry H. Ray
mond, Manager Buckenbcrger says, will be
used as a general utility man when he is
signed, and he is ready to sign. He was
Captain of the Louisville team when they
won the Association pennant.
The directorate know their own bnsiness
probably better than outsiders, but if Ray
mond turns out as good as Denny might he
will be a star. The trouble always is here
that first intentions are swerved by ontside
talk. A man like Anson alwavs makes up
his mind to take a man according to his im
pressions. He took Cliff Carroll and got a
winner although outsiders discarded him.
Who knows what Denny's qualifications
would be here this year? By all means give
Denny a chance if terms can be made with
FEIDDY TALES BUSINESS.
He Will Run Jordan on Fair Business
Terms In This City.
Peter Priddy called at this office yesterday
and left the following statement:
"I am willing to make a match with Mr.
Joidan right away, but we must have a fair
deal. I will tun Jordan a three-mile race for
$250 a side, and 70 per cent of the receipts to
the winner and 30 to the loser, each man to
pay his own expenses to run in Pittsburg,
which is tho best city in the United States
lor a foot race. Or I will give him $50 ex
penses if wo run lor $250 a side and the win
ner take 75 and the loser 25 per cent of the
receipts. If cither of 'these terms are suita
ble to Jordan, I will send him articles at
once. My representative in the meantime Is
the sporting editor of The. Dispatch. I in
sist on tunning not sooner than eight weeks
from now. Any responsible paper in Chi
cago will do for me as stakeholder."

Tho 23-Cent Seats.
Tho numerous objections to the 25-cent

of the matter. A meeting to make a final
decision will be held Monday or Tuesday.

tions on poultry and domestic animals on
the farms along the mountain and in the
valley.. Many of the farmers there have
been unaple to keep fowls during the past
winter, and even sheep, pigs and calves have
been attacked and destroyed.
It has been impossible to put these mid
night prowlers out of the way fast enough
with traps and by shooting them, and
poisoned meat has been scattered on the
mountainside and many of them killed in
that way. The bounty and the price that
can be obtained for the skin amount to
abont $i, and this revenue partly reim
burses the farmers for the destruction com
mitted by the ravenous beasts in their
nightly raids. An increase in their number
and boldness Is reported from other parts of
the county. To-day one was captcred alive
by Martin and brought to town. .
NON-UNION HOLDEES MOBBED.
The EcBpse Stove Company at Mansfield, O.,
Trying to Restime.
Mansfield, O., March 18 Special. At
2:30 this afternoon, while the managers of
the Eclipse Stove Company were escorting
13 iron moiders from the Union Tlepot to the
factory, a large number of locked-out mem
bers surrounded the crowd and began yell
ing "scabs," and threatening violence. A
close watch is being kept on the works to
night. About a month ago the 60 iron workers in
the molding department were locked out by
the managers because the employes asked
an advance of wages of 15 per cent, enough
to pay them the same wages as received by
all union men. Since 'that time no work has
been done in the factory. For several davs
tho managers of the company have been in
Hamilton and Cincinnati seenring moiders,
and brought them to the city to-day. The
company will endeavor to fill all vacancies
with non-union men, and union moiders say
they will not allow thein to work.

, STATE TAX DECISIONS.
Very Important Ones Handed .Down by
Jndge Slmonton, at Harrisburg.
HARRisBOTto.March 18. Judge Slmonton left
for Florida, to-day, but before going handed
down opinions in annmber of State tax cases
that have been pending for some time.
In the case or the Sew Tork, Lake Erie and
Western Railroad Company, an appeal from
tax on loans, that it was not liable to tax in
respect of $1,050,000 bonds held by a corpora
tion which had paid a tax on net earnings;
that to tax the income derived from the
bonds as net earnings, and then to tax the
bonds themselves is to impose double tax
ation, which is not permlssable in the ab
sence of express authority of law, the court
decides, however, that the tax upon not
earnings is not a taxupon property, but upon
the franchise of the corporation, and that,
therefore, the result of taxing tho net earn
ings of companies owning the bonds and
also the bonus would notbedonble taxation.
The court decides, also, that the Common
wealth can collect tax under the act of July
1, 1889, only for the portion of the year sub
sequent to that date. The Commonwealth
contended that it was the duty of the cor
poration to deduct a whole year's tax from
the first semi-annual interest payment after
rue passage oi tne net.
In tho case of the Lehigh Coal and Na vi-
fation Company, tax on capital stock!or
690. tho court decides that the company iff
tnxable on its whole capital stock, and
directs judgment for the Commonwealth for
In the case against the Jefferson Railroad
Company, lor tax on loans Tor 1889-90, the
court decides that the company is not liable
for tax in respect of bonds which wero
issned and sold outside of Pennsylvania to
non-residents of the State, but which were
not known when the tax became due or at
any other time, to be held or owned by resi
dents of Pennsylvania, but that it is liable
in respect to bonds which have not been
issued or sold or payable ontside of the
State. Judgment for the Commonwealth,
in each case, $996 30.
In the case against the Western. Land and
Improvement Company, tax on capital stock
for 1891, the court decides that the Common
wealth is entitled to tax in respect of
amounts reported to the Auditor General,
as dividends of profits, but which were
really dividends of capital. Judgment for
the Commonwealth, $3,883 1L
WUmerding's New School to Be Dedicated
No Free Delivery.
Bicaddock, March 18. Special The dedi
cation of tho new school building at Wil
merding will take place April S with unusu
ally imposing ceremonies. A big parade of
Senior and Junior O. U. A. M. and other pa
triotic orders of surrounding towns will
take place. North Star Council, Jr. O.iU. A.
M., will present a fine silk flag. County Su
perintendent Hamilton will make an ad
dress. Tho building cost over $40,000.
The report circulated that Homestead is
to get fiee mail delivery soon, that it has
been promised by Hon. John Dalzell and
Hon. A. E. Craig, proves to be without foun
dation. The town lias neither the 10,000
population necessary nor $10,000 yearly
postal revenue. Postmaster Sheets, of the
Braddock office, said to-day: "I will be In a
position in two weeks to demand the sys
tem for Braddock."
Harry X. Scott, of this place, a yonng law
yer recently admitted to practice in the
Allegheny county bar, received a letter from
a green sroods man, singing himself Charles
Bostwick and his address 2163 Eighth ave
nue, New York, asking him to take the
agency for his "goods." Attorney Scott
turned the letter over to Roger O'Mara, who
referred the case to Inspector SUvis. Tho
latter said nothing could be done, as the
operator practiced in another State. A large
number of these letters have been received
by Braddock people for the past week.
The Mercenary Chum of a Dead Man
Tries to Take Everything in Sight.
Massillon, March 18. Special John
Mem was crushed to death by a fall of rock
in the Drake Coal Company's mine to-day.
Tne dead man boarded with August Braugh
man, bis working partner in the mine, and
the body was brought to his home in this
city. When Coroner Openheimer arrived
at the honse he found tho inmates rumnging
Mei-a'strupK, having secured a certificate
of deposit for $375. Braughmnn claimed that
$15 was due him for board, which is known
to be false; demanded $10 for keeping the
body in the house, and threatened to throw
it in the street if tho amount uas not pilld.
The corpse was removed to' an undertaking
The chum of the deceased also coollv in
formed the Coroner that he wanted $100 of
the money paid over to him to buy a coflin,
and $20 to put np a monument to attest his
grief. Brnughman got on a big drunk this
afternoon and would have been locked up
but for the fact that his wife is ill. It is
known that Mera possessed considerable
more money than the certificate, and the
Coroner got out a search wariant to-night.
FUN AMID POLITICAL SIBIFE.
A Mythical Colonel Has a Big Boom in
Blair Connty for Congress.
Hollidatsburo, March 18 Special. The
hent of the present political strite in Blair
county has been greatly relieved by the
running of a series of letters in an Altoona
paper, espousing the cause of Coionel Eras
tus Briggs for Congress. The unknown cor
respondent styles himself "The Rambler,"
and his letters are modeled after the his
toric Junius contributions. The special vir
tues of the several candidates before the
people are embodied in this Mr. Briggs, and
interviews with'prominent politicians of the
connty, favoring his candidacy, arc printed.
Now, the truth of the matter is that "Col
onel Brisrgs" is a mythical personage, and
the Jok6 has been rather carried too far by
the issuing of regular tickets, with his name
heading the list, which have been scattered
at every polling place. The primaries occnr
to-morrow, and while the regular Repub
lican tioket, headed by J. D. Hicks, of Al
toona, will easily win out, it is also quite as
certain that many of the farmers will vote
lor that ideal personage, Colonel Briggs.
THE FACTIONS W0BKINO.
Supporters of Quay and Dalzell Doing Their
Best in Armstrong.
Kittasuinq, March 18. Special It is
.stated by an organ to-day that in all prob
ability the Democrats win not place any
candidates in nomination this year. Ibis
is hardly true, as, the Democrats are wide
awake to the serious factional fight in the
Republican ranks, and may get their men
in. Within tho past week nearly every
voter in the county has been receiving
marked copies of the Philadelphia Jnorrfrer,
containing articles showing the good and
strong points in Senator Quay's record and
character. These articles are havme great
influence, especially in tho country districts
where the army vote is strong, and many
votes wmen nave oeen nuctuaiing Detween
Quay and Dalzell are being made over to
Quay. Meanwhile the friends of Dalzell are
making a merry fight, and have succeeded
in w inning over two or. three more country
papers to their side of the fence.
A Republican Call.
Youhgstown, O., March 18. Special
Judge King, Chairman of the Republican
State Central Committee, to-night sent the
following notice to each member of the com
mittee: "You are hereby notified that there will be

Applicants Are Disconcerted Over
Christy's Sudden Move.
HIS REMONSTRANCES ACCEPTED.
It Hakes a Big Bnsiness for the Other Li
THE NAMES FOUND OX THE PATAfi IIST
B. C. Christy's unexpected appearance in
License Court caused a scramble among the
vanous applicants and their attorneys.
They all seemed scared, and attorneys and
applicants crowded the Clerk of Courts'
office and Attornev Christy's office all day
waiting for a chance to see if people
they were interested in appeared on the fa
tal list. A"s predicted the night before, Mr.
Christy made application to court yesterday
and all his remonstrances were admitted,
but no more were filed. He had a corps of
clerks at work most of the day yesterday
entering the remonstrances on the records
and classifying them. Owing to the im
mense amount of work necessary the public
was shut ont until the task was completed.
This increased the anxiety. '
The Christy remonstrances, however, are
nearly all against new applicants and peo
ple who have been refused before. Nearly
all of the remonstrances are based on infor
mation received from the famous "Dooms
day Book." The fact that an applicant has
been refused license is taken as evidence
that the place is not 'needed, and remon
strance is therefore made. The fact of a
man having held license is also regarded as
proof of necessity, and the Court has indi
cated that nearly all the people who now
have license will be continued in business.

WOODEN PAVEMEHTS OF ETJE0FE.
Their Good Point Is the Foundation, bat
They Will Smell.
It is surpriseing to see that the craze that
set in a few years ago for wooden pave
ments in Paris and London has not been
suppressed, but is vastly extended. In the
wooden pavements of London the first thing
is to secure a solid and durable basis. This
is done by digging deep and putting down,
first, a layer of fine broken stone and then
a thick one of concrete, which is like a
level and almost invulnerable rock.
Upon this the wooden blocks, with inter
stices for tar and gravel, are placed, and
serve as a covering to deaden the sound of
hurrying hoofs and wheels. "When the
wood wears it is easily removed and new
blocks are placed in the vacancy. Xhe in
superable objection must be found in their
bad smelling unwholesomeness.

NERVOUS AND SICK HEWHE.
How to Perfectly Care Them.
All forms of headaohe are of a nervous
character, and are caused by a weakness, ir
ritation or disease of nerves of the head, or
to the disorders of the system from Spring
Debility, malaria, and to cure such cases it
is absolutely necessary to use Dr. Greene's
Nervura. The Grip aleo, which has been so
prevalent, causes more headache and leaves
the nerves of the head In a more weakened
and diseased condition than any other
known affection. This condition should never
be neglected. Many persons who suffer from
headache have, by repeated failures to And
relief, despaired of cure. To such we would
say, by all means seenre a bottle of this won
derful remedy, and watch its "marvellous
effects. It is the most perfect cure known
for headache. Purely vegetable and harm
less. Druggists, $L
