THE PITTSBimG DISPATCH. THURSDAY MARCH -31, 1892.
8 GETTING INTO LINE. Almost All the Local Ball Players Arrive in Town. WOODCOCK MAY REPORT TO-DAY. local Amateur Athletes Have an Interesting Entertainment IX-TJMPIRE ZACHARIAH KILLED BI CARS It is expected that all the local ball players signed to play here will be in the city to-day, including Pitcher 'Woodcock. Quite a batch of players are in the city now, including Arthur "Whitney, Corkhill, Ehret, Earle and Shugart. It looked like the height of the baseball season yesterday afternoon at headquarters, on "Wood street, and many an old story was told and many a prediction made, of course. Many of the players are anxious to know who are goinj to be kept and who are going to be released. It is certain that 19 men arc not Roing to be retained, and probably five of that number will have to go speedily. Manager Buekenberger wisely refrains from stating who will have to go. although it may be that he and President Temple have already made up their minds on the matter. lots o" Gumbos. Many conjectures have been and are still being made as to who will be released, but the management decline to say what guess is right and what is wrong. They want to try all the players before finally releasing anybody. The common expectation is that Arthur AVhitney will not be retained. He certainly will not if Denny is secured, but it is stated that if Denny comes here or not "Whitney will be released. One authority -avs that that is the present intention. It is also rumored that Corkhill will not be wanted, nor will Briggs. But if all the Ditchers show up in good form one or two may be released, but not right away. Both Manager Buekenberger and Presdent Temple mean to be extremely careful before releasing any player at all, and particular attention will be paid to the pitchers in this respect. All the players who have arrived are well pleased with the prospects of the team, at least they profess to be. Speak Well or Woodcock. - The Eastern contingent brings good ac counts of Woodcock from there, and Manager Buekenberger was well pleased vesterday when he received a letter from Woodcock stating that the latter will bo here to-day. It "is still thought that the Boston club has beeu tampering with AVoodcock, aud on the' expectation of getting him they commenced the talk about releasing one ot their pitchers. Since the Pittsburg club has definitely stated that "Woodcock must play here there has been no talk about releasing a Boston pitcher. "Woodcock may be tried in Saturday's game if he intends to play here, and he would Jiardly come this lar if ho did not mean to report f.ir duty. If he pitches Saturday he will be quite a good carJ. All the players who have so far reported are looking in excellent condition. Cork hill is in line trim, and it is needless to say that he is able to do some very fine fielding. THINKS ITS A BLTJFF. That's Jim Hall's Opinion About the Chal lenge of Bob Htisimmons. Mou:TCmis,MlCH.,lIarch30 Special. Hall, the pugilist, now here, received a tele gram from Xew York last evening advising him tliat Fltzsimmous had written the t-portmg edito of the 'ew York World that he would meet Hall before either the Olym pic or California Athletic Club for the best purse offered and a ae bet of $10,000, Queensberry rules to govern, and that be will allow Hall rour pounds over middle weight limit, and has posted $5,000 forfeit. Seen at his hotel this evening, Hail said: "I'll light Fitzimmons in any part ol God's creation lor any bloody monev he can put up. but I can't leduce below-163 pounds. He knows this, and that's why ho says 158 pound, just to keep us apart." "lhen you legard the challenge as par ticulaily -n ell woraed?" "Certainly, that's the meat. It is a bluff purr and simple." "If he should decide to meet yon uuon the same terms, allow mg j ou 1G3 pounds would j ou accept?" "Ccrtilnlv, and he knows that too well, but he understands I can't train down any nearer the middle-weight limit than this. That's the ery leason he granted me 153 pounds. "1 shall not remain silent, Dut haven't just decided on my answer. Tou may say, how eiei.that I look upon his proposition as ery cleverly w orded to keep us apart."

Ilefoie he held that position ho was an umpire in the County League and was ranked as the best in the League. He was noted lor his honesty, his intelligence and his geniality.

Speaking of the new Athletic League yes teiday John A. Well, one of the Executive Committee of the Atlantic division of the A. A. U., said: "It s-eem to me that the new league has for its object the downfall of the A A U. Of coue the promoters of the new organiza tion will not admit that, but tho general opinion is what I say. The now organiza tion wants to have nothing but big clubs in, and let me tell you that the divisions of the A. A. U., wherein all the big clubs ate lo cated, are In debt and assessments have had to bo mad for them. The Atlantic division is the only one having a balance to its credit. Certainly the A A.

The wheels were moie worn in the 1,000 miles on tlio desert than the 2.000 miles traveled in the Eastern States. Bovle was compelled to sleep several nights on the sand. He was entertained and welcomed by the bicvclo clubs of the towns lie passed through, but wasery much an noyed by Xavalo Indians, who chased after him and persisted in their attempts to ride the safety.

The Governor is authorized to appoint a commission to locate the asylum.

Eaum's Tague Ideas of What Is Meant by a Muzzled Press. DISCHARGES CAUSED BY CBITICISH "Washington, March 30. The examina tion of Pension Commissioner Baum was resumed to-day by the Special Pension Office Investigating Committee of the House. Mr. Kuloe asked the reasons for the dismissal of Edward Henaud, a pension office clerk. The Commissioner read three letters, in two or which he asked the dis missal of Benaud from tbe Pension office. In these letters Mr. Baum called attention to articles which had appeared in the New York Trilrmc criticising the conduct of pension officials and commenting particu larly upon one case. The Commissioner wrote that Mr. Benaud admitted having the papers in the case on his desk, but gave no explanation as to why he bad the papers on his desk. Mr. Benaud's duties did not require him to ex amine the papers, and he had no right to take the papers from the files. The articles could not have been written without these papers, and while Mr. Benaud denied hav ing written or inspired the article, he ad mitted being a writer for the Tribune. The article was a misstatement of the case. Mr. Baum, in his letter, further stated that Benaud, after Commissioner Black went out "of office, boasted of having written the well known "physical wreck" articles, and Mr. Baum demanded his dismissal on the ground that no clerk in the department should be permitted to attack the head of the bnreau in which he served. Kenaud Still in the Census Offlc. Benaud was dismissed from the Pension Office. Subsequently he was employed in tbe Census Office, and witness wrote a third letter to Secretary Noble, calling his at tention to Benaud's employment. Benauds was still in the Census Office. ToMr.Enloe the Commissioner said he had never heard that Secretary Noble had said the statements in the article were true. A Tribune correspondent denied that Be naud had written the article or famished the facts. Benaud had refused to assist witness in ascertaining the name of the author. Be naud. had fferer.said.tbe papers were put on his desk by mistake. Mr. Enloe asked the Commissioner how long it was since the New York Tribune had ceased to make war upon his administra tion The Commissioner said he really could not tell. lie was not usually a reader of the Tribune. "Did yon?-' Mr. Enloe asked, "send any body to "see Mr. Bussell Harrison, or did you go to see him, to ask him to use his in fluence with the manager or the controlling powers ot the Tribune to stop this attack upon vour administration?" "I did not." Questions Put Fast and Furiously. "Do you know of anybody being to see him for that purpose?" "I do not know anything abont it." "Do you know of Mr. Lemon having per formed "such a service?" "I have no knowledge or information on the subject." "Do vou know of anybody having spoken to Mr. Whitelaw Beid to get him to stop this correspondence attackingyour adminis tration?" "I have no knowledge of it." "Have you ever heard of such a thing?" "I understood that one of the principal men of the Tribune office was in the city here, and that he had some conversation, probably at tbe Secretary's office. It was probably with General Bnssey. I did not see the gentleman and had no conversation with him." "Do you know what the conversation with General Bitssey was?" "I do not. I learned -that the gentleman seemed to be laboring under the impression that the Department was very much dissat isfied with my management of the Pension office, and that they informed him quite to the contrary; that they thought I was giv ing to the country a good administration of the Pension Office." "Was it General Bussev who told vou so?" Where General Bussej Comes In. "He informed me of something of that kind. I suppose that this gentleman also saw Secretary Noble, but I did not have any conversation with Mr. Noble about it. I did have with General Bussev. He vol unteered to make the statement." "Did General Bussev state that that mat ter bad been arranged?" "He said that this gentleman was some what surprised at being informed that the Department thought that my administra tion was good, and tbat the criticisms upon it were not just" "Did General Bussev tell yon that Mr. Bussell Harrison and Mr. Lemon and other gentlemen had interceded with this man?" "No, sir; tbat is entirely new to me." 'You have not heard what it was that brought this man here irom New York?" "No, sir." "What was his name?" "I cannot recall his name. I was not ac quainted with him." "Have you not understood that the influ ence of the administration was brought to bear on Mr. Whitelaw Beid to stop these attacks?" "I have no direct information on the sub ject" "I do not suppose vou have anv direct in formation, but has not that beeu you un derstanding?" One Way to Have the Prw Muzzled. "I cannot state that I have any informa tion on tbe subject Persons have spoken to me with some indignation about the man ner in which the Tribune was conducting itself in tbe matter, and sai'd tbat Mr. Beid ought to be spoken to." "Did the President ever express himself to you in that way?" "No, sir. I never talked with the Presi dent ab:ut it" "Did Mr. Bussell Harrison?" "I never said a word to Mr. Harrison on the subject." "Did Mr. Lemon?" "No, sir." "Who were the persons who expressed themselves as you say?" "I cannot tell you. Many persons com ing into the office and talking about these articles thought it a little curious that one of the principal bureaus of the Government should be attacked by the Tribune while Mr. Whitelaw Beid was a Minister at Paris." "While he was holding a position under tbe administration?" "Yes." "Did they express to you the idea that anybody holding a public position under the Government and ha ing control of a. public journal should muzzle his paper?" "I have no information on the subject" Tnis closed the most interesting portion of the day's testimony, the reraainjlcr of" the hearing being devoted to listening to the reasons which influenced the commissioner in removing certain clerks.
