Buckenberger Says Pittslmrg Hasn't
Eeleased Him.
A Splendid SilTer Cup Offfered for a Football
Manager Bucfcenberger stated definitely
yesterday that Pittsburg still has a claim on
Jerry Denny and that he cannot, according
to baseball law, play in the San Jpse team.
Keferring to the matter, the manager said:
"We have had a letter from President
Young on the case and he tells us that
Denny cannot play at any other place than
Pittsburg, except we release him. "We have
not released him yet, and we have a letter
on its way to him in California now. We
still claim him and that prevents his play
ing for any otner club until our permission
is granted."
This is a piece of news, as it has generally
been understood that the local club had re
linquished all claim to Denny. This no
tion, though, seems to have been sent out to
the public by other persons than the offi
cials of the club as they, according to Man
ager Buckenberger, have not at all given
acv license to anybody to say or to
think that Denny has b"een released by
Denny May Kick.
But whether Denny will come East ornot
is another matter. It he does not the Cali
fornian will be signed by the national
agreement clubs and he may be summarily
dealt with by the Board of Control. It also
may be that the local club is not very anx
ious for him, but if reports are true regard
ing his playing he is certainly worth strug
gling for.
The directors did not hold any meeting
yesterday to discuss the 25-cent seat ques
tion. Last evening Vice President Kerr
was questioned on the matter and he said
as far as he knew the question was settled.
'The seats are to be in center field as far as
I know," he said. This indicates that the
original plans adopted by the directors are
to be carried out They argue with much
force that they cannot make the present
"bleachers" into 25-cent seats, as that
would tend to
Greatly Keduco Their Receipts
and all the expenses for the year have been
estimated on a certain amount of admissions
at more than 25 cents each. There is a
sympathetic side and a business side to the
question, and as the stockholders have aU
ready advanced an enormous amount of
money for the approaching season, they
claim that they must and are forced to keep
inside of business principles. But it may
be that the matter is not definitely settled
Manager Buckenberger has decided to
have two nines of the local club play on
Friday. This will be an exceedinglyinter
esting game, as all the players with the ex
ception of "Woodcock will be engaged in it.
Cranks will certainly have plenty to figure
on then. The grounds were rolled yester
day and did not look very bad. If the
weather keeps fine they will be well enough
for a game Friday. At nny rate there will
be no games played at Kecroation Park.
The positions and batting order of the two
teams lor Friday's game will be as follows,

And Disclose the Pack and the Skeleton of
a Murdered Peddler.
Buctbtjs, March 28. A marvelous story
was unearthed here to-day by the discovery
of a peddler's pack and a skeleton in the
bouse of a man named Cope, living two
miles north of this city. Mr. and Mrs.
Cope are well-to-do, owning a farm of 240
acres, most of which came to the wife by
inheritance. For some years there havf
been many disagreements between the bus
band and wile and many stories have been
afloat. One of these stories is that there
are two rooms in the house to which no one
is given access. One is the cellar, in which
there is a large, iron-bound box, while the
room directly above is always locked. Last
week Mrs. Cope died and the estate is now
being settled.
Some 14 years ago a peddler in that vicin
ity, reputed rich, disaDpeared basr. and
baggage, and no little talk resulted. Yester
day a correspondent went to the place,
which is near Sycamors.a fine lookingfarm
house adorning the still finer arm. The
newspaper man was accompanied by the
onlv son and heir of the deceased woman.
Arriving at the house it was found that
both the cellar and upper room were still
locked, as they had been for years. No one,
not even the son, was allowed to enter, ex
cept the old maid-servant
While The Dispatch correspondent was
present the woman entered the room, alter
shaking loose several rusted iron bars. She
closed the doors alter her, but soon re-appeared.
After securely locking the doors
behind her, the servant presented the hus
band, Mr. Cope, with a gold watch, and the
son with ?85, all in gold, which she said the
departed Mrs. Cope has left to them. The
woman would say nothing more, and the
correspondent was obliged to leave for the
time being. The servant remained in the
house, and ordered the son to leave, saying
she desired Mr. Cope, the husband ,to re
main. This strange proceeding was reported to
the officials at Sycamore, who promised
to look into the matter. Late this evening
a telegram was received irom Sycamore,
stating that the locked-up rooms had been
broken into. A skeleton was found in the
iron-bound box in the cellar, and a ped
dler's pack was found in the upper room.
It is stated that the Cope family did not oc
cupy the house at the time of the disap
pearance of the peddler, and the finding is
all the more mysterious.
Very Few Remonstrances Filed, and Most
Applicants Will Go Through.
GREENSBuno, March 28. Special. License
hearings weie begun in court here this
morning. There were IC8 applicants to sell
liquor In the county. Very few remon
strances were filed, the temperance people
being content with filing objections to a few
who they claimed were either unnecessary
or had violated the, laws.
In the course of the hearings Judge Doty
took occasion to remark and he laid con
siderable stress on the matter that under
tho provisions of the law the Court had the
power to revoke tho licenses of brewers and
distillers who had sold liquors to persons
selling without a retail license. This state
ment created considerable interest, as it is
well known the mining region is filled with
houses where drinks can he bought merely
for the asking; that no licenses are held by
these house'), and that the liquor has boon
purchased from wholesalers in the county.
In his talk to wholesalers, the Judge also
reminded both them and the retailers that
tbey were not to make a specialty of selling
by the gallon, that being the usual means
adopted by speak-easies in replenishing
stock. The decisions will be handed down
Saturday, and as the temperance people
seem perfectly satisfied with the number of
licenses in force, it is believed they will
hardly be cnt down by tho Court.

The Temperance Hall Burned In a Town
Where No Licenses Were Granted.
Johnstown, March 28. Special. Ever
since the License Court sat down so hard on
the applicants for license in Morellville,
threats have been made. The place is a
Bubnrb of this town, and every one of the
applicants was refused. This result was
believed to have been brought about by the
efforts of the Young Women's Christian
Temperance Union, assisted by many of the
business men. Among the latter were H. A.
Anderson and his son Harry, who kept the
leading store in the place. They were, also,
the owners of the large ball which the tem
perance people made their headquarters.
Saturday night a number of drnnken men
declared that the temperance hall would be
burned. The police force was doubled.
This morning at 2 o'clock there was an
alarm of fire, and instinctively everybody
looked towaid tho temperance hall, and,
sure enough, it was ablaze. Every effort
was made to save It, but it wns burned to
the ground. Bv the time the fire was over
the feeling was intense, as it was eleaily of
incendiary origin. The constable and a
posse of citizons scoured the town, but the
throatcners had left Several of their com
panions were taken into custody, but were
afterward let go. To-night the police be
lieve tboy have track of the incendiaries,
and hope to have them caged before morn

current that the dosperadoes would burn
the whole village, and to-night the most
