GENERAL SPORTING NEWS OP THE DAT
A snggestion has been made by Manager
Bnckenberger to the committee appointed
to reviie the rules of thel3-club league that
is worthy of attention. The ingestion re
lates to tbe changing of pitchers by a side
that is hopelessly behind in a game long
before it is finished. During a conversa
tion yesterday ifr. Bnckenberger explained
his suggestion as follows:
"Every season there are games wherein a
pitcher is thoroughly knocked out in the
first, second or third inning. The nine to
which the pitcber belongs falls so far behind
in the score that tbe manager does not care
who is put in to relieve the knocked-out
pitcher. The latter may be a good man and
is consequently taken out of the box so as to
try and get into better shape for another
day. "When he is taken out an irifielder or
outfielder is put in to finish the game, and
the contest become a burlesque. The spec
tators become disgusted and the game is in
jured. I remember one occasion when there
was a very close fight for the Association
pennant between the St. Louis and Brook
lyn teams. The Brooklyns went to Balti
more to plav and Barnie took several of his
regular fielders out of the game and filled
their places with pitchers and catchers. Of
course the Brooklyns won easily. I
"Now, this is somethiug that a rule
should prevent, and I suggest, in fact I
have suggested to the Rules Committee that
they make a rule providing that when a
pitcher is knocked out, as we term, another
bona fide pitcher replace him. Further,
that no matter how Jar a team may be be
hind, that no player be changed so as to
palpably weaken the losing side. What I
want is something that will tend to make a
losing team play right to the finish just as
earnestly as if they were in the lead. This,
nt course, cannot be absolutely guaranteed,
but something can be done to make things
better than they are now."
It is not generally known that A G.
Spalding suggested that the Rules Commit
tee consist of three plavers along with
Messrs. Byrnes. Von der Horst and Brash.
Like everything that Mr. Spalding has sug
guested in connection with baseball the
suggestion in question is a wise one. Prob
ably the present committee is one of the
weakest that could have been appointed.
Their practical knowledge of the game is
comparatively small, and if they were aided
by three intelligent bali players there
would be more likelihood of a sound revision
of the rules. But it is not surprising that
the suggestion was ignored when the nature
of the element that rules the League is con
sidered. It was authoritatively stated yesterday
that Mr. Spalding has been importuned to
once more identify himself with baseball af
fairs7so as to assist in getting the national
game back to its former prestige. Since he
left its councils the League has gone from
bad to worse, and the reason is not far to
seek. Mr. Spalding, however, at present
declines to re-enter the business. This re
solve, it is alleged, is because the "combi
nation" does not want him. It is to be hoped
that the time is not far distant when Mr.
Spalding's wise oounsels will once more
prevail,, and then there will be some hope
lof the national game.
"Washington Releases Dowd.
TVashikgtox, Dec 1 With the advent of
fam Wise to cover second base for the
Washington Baseball Club there will be no
necessity lor tbo services or Tommy Dowd
on tbe team, but Jio will not be permitted to
lemain idle. President Von der Abe, of the
St. Louis club, wanted Dowd last season,
but tbe Warners w ould not release him at
that time, as desired, not wanting to be lett
in the lurch. Now, however, they have con.
sented to "waive any claim to this player,
and bo has been signed by St. Louis to re
place Jck Crooks at second. This deal was
consummated to-day, and Dowd will leave
for his new field of duty in the sprinc beinjr
desirous or finishing his course of etudy at
Georgetown University.
Too Slany Trotters.
LxrtKOTOif, Kt., Dec. L Thora is no dis
guislnz the fact, trotting horse breeders are
getting scared. They are evidently afraid
the bottom is going to fall nut of tbe breed
ing business and they are doing tbe very
thing that will help to bring it about. They
are crowding tbe combination salesmen
with consignments; not with culls, as has
been largely the custom in tbe past, but
with tbe very best animals on their farms.
Altogether there will be offered at public
auction within the next 90 days over S 000
standard bred trotters, many of them the
best In tbe land. Kotblnglike it was ever
known in the history of tbe trotting horse
business, and the question is, will there be
enough buyers! A. II. Moore, tbe Phila
delphia financier, cannot buy all the great
one-t offered, as he is already pretty well
stocked on account of his numerous pur
chases last spring. Other big buyers must
develop to save matters.
Wants to Sell His Trotters.
John Murphy, of the Meadow Lands
Stock Farm, Is inclined to Bell his trotters.
He started to sell them on Tuesday, and as
only S10S was realized for one of his stal
lions lie stopped the sale. He has some of
the best trotting stock In the State and the
low prices prevailing go to show that tbe
great supply or trotting stock at present is
much in excess of tbe demand.
No Racing at Gattenberg.
Gcttrtsebo Raob Track, Dec. L Special
The heavy frost of. last night converted
tbe track into a skating rink and the track
was In such bad shape that at 11 o'clock the
managers announoed a postponement of to
day's programme until to-morrow.
Creelman and Tellowly.
The gentleman who left the deposit or $25
and a challenge at this office Wednesday
relative to a shooting match between David
Creelman and W. Tellowly writes this
paper, saying that be meant his challenge
to mean that Mr. Creelman would shoot
Mr. Yellowly. The former called at this
office yesterday and also pnt op S25 as a for
feit to snoot a matoh against Mr. Tellowly
so that there are two torfeits here for Mr.
Creelman. The latter will meet Mr. Yellow
ly at this office next Monday afternoon a t 2
o'clock prepared to make a match.
Noted Rifle Shot Dead.
Aitooka, ta., Dec. 1. Information reached
Here to-day that Claude Daily, a noted rifle
shot who had been starring in Europe after
a four years' engagement with the Buffalo
Bill company, had fallen a victim to cholera
In Brussels. Deceased was a brother of
Lillian DaUy, the actress, now In one or
Frobman's companies. Daily was a fine
marksman and has received valuable testl
monials from notablepeople In Europe. He

Philadelphia.
Detroit Wants It.
DEmotT, Dec 1 An effort is being made
to secure tbe national regatta of 1893 for
Detroit. At a meeting or prominent citi
zens held last evening a committee of IS
was appointed to work tbe matter up and
raise f&oeo, which amount must be id the
hands of tbe National Hoard by January 4
as a guarantea.
CHOYMSKl DOESN'T KKOW.
Joseph Cannot Say Definitely Whether'
He'll Fight Goddard or Maher.
Sxw Tork, Dec I. ISneeiaL Joe Choyn
ski is boxing over In Williamsburg, and on
Monday nlgbt saw the now notorious Co-tello-Ureggains
sprintat Coney Island. He
Is well content over ,the turn affairs have
taken, and is now making very good money.
The Olympic Club is anxious to have him
meet the winner of the Goddard-Maher orfn
tost lor a $7,500 purse. Asked if he woutd
accept this offer, be replied yesterday that
he did not know. His business engage
ments were many, he added, the combina
tion Is doing well, and It will require omo
thought to decide whether It would be ad
visable to make the light.
Clioynski's friends, however, say that suoh
a fight can be arranged. Considerable In
terest is now manifesting Itself In the fight
between Billy Madden's protege and uis ex
protege. Some runny stories are heard
about the contest, and it should be lairly
easy to have a sure winner on the night ot
the fight. Both men are reported to be care
lessly training, but no matter what kind of
a contest it proves to be it Is probable that
It will end In a distance run.
QBSOOAIKS AFIES BIG OAKS.
He
"Wants to Face the Famous jniaaio-
Welght Champion Fltzsimmons.
Bostok, Dec 1. Alex. Grejgalns. the
middle-weight boxer, arrived in Boston to
day ana deposited $1,000 In defence of his
claim to the middle-weight championship.
He authorized tbe following telegram, which
was sent this afternoon to Judge K. V. B.
Newton, of the Coney Island Athletic Club:
"Alex. Greggalns, by his backer, Joseph
Lewis, or Boston, this day posted $1,000 with
me in support or his claim to the middle
weight ohamplonship or America, and he
will allow the same to remain for one
month. , .
"He desires especially to negotiate a
match with Kobert Fltzsimmons, of Aus
tralia, for a purse and outside stake, and Is
prepared to maKe the latter $5,000 -Simmons
will battle him for the middle
weight ohampionshlp of the world.
A. W. Coort."
Fitzsimmons is quite willing to fight
Grejgains and states that he will easily de
feat him.
Goddard In Fine Trim.
New Youk, Dec Special Joe Uod
dard, who is to meet Peter Maher berore the
Coney Island Club, writes to the Sun lrom
Passaic U. J., that he Is in excellent Bhape
and ready to step into the ring at a
moment's notice. "I am backing myself
heavily to win," writes Goddard, "and I can
assure you that I will. The quarters whesa
I am training are the best that any fighter
could desire, and Jim Gibbons, who Is pre
paring me for the contest, is a very able and
attentive fellow. If I win this fight I wUl
make rapid strides to meet Peter Jaokson
again, for I am confident I can defeat him.
It is not true that Billy Madden and I have
lallen out. We are the best or frien,ds, and
will, I hope, continue to be. Mr. Morris, of
the Columbia A. C under whose colors I
am going to meet Maher, was down to Bee
me the other day, and he was very much im
pressed with my condition. His club is bet
ting heavily on the riant. At present I tip
the Deam at 180 pounds, stripped. I believe
that I will remain at this limit another week
yet."
McAullffe Is Backing Gllmore.
Chicaoo. Dec L Champion Jack MoAul

for a fight between tbe latter and Walter
Campbell, or New Tork. The challenge was
sent to Domlnick McCaffrey, or the Manhat

Amherst Team's Record.
Axbxkst, Dec. L The Amherst eleven has
played 13 games this year and scored 314
points against 14L The year before, in 15
games, Amherst scored but SI points to 154.
The largest score was 60 to 0, against Will
iams, and the largest score made against
Amherst was 32 to 10, by Harvard. This was
tbe first year in which an experience coaoh
had been secured, and GUI's fine work in
this capacity proved to be or the greatest
service to tbe success of tbe eleven.
The men, with two or three exceptions,
are light, the average weight being but 164
Sounds, no that Amherst's play has not been
eavy and of the battering ram style, but a
use of her swift half backs, aided by scien
tific and systematic blocking. Van Leaven,
right end, has done exceptional work in
gaining ground, and is counted one of the
swiftest runners on any football eleven to
day. General Sporting Notes.

ilDS TO ASTRONOMY.
Observations of the Past Year at
Cambridge and in Per a
MAKE GREAT STRIDES FORWARD.
Fome of the DiicoYrle$ of Vast Interest to
ill Fcientistu.
EXCELLENT PHOTOGRAPHS BEING HADE
(SPECIAL TELXORA TO THE DISrATCH.l
Boston, Dec Prof. Pickering says
in his annual report, just issued, that the
Harvard observatory astronomers made a
great many interesting astronomical dis
coveries last year, both in Cambridge and
in Peru. There "were taken 2,777 stellar
photographs in Cambridge and nearly 2,000
in Peru. The examination of these plates
has, as usual, led to the discovery of a large
number ol interesting objects. Ten variable
stars, TJ. Delphinis, S. Pegasi, T. Aquarii,
R. Crateris, B. Carina, S. Canis Minoris,
a Carintc, E. Ophiucbi, Ophiuchl and
Espins, Tariable star in Auriga, in ad
dition to those previously announced, have
the hydrogen lines bright in their spectra.
Seven new variable stars have been discov
ered this year by means of this property.
The nnmbcr of stars of the fifth type has
been increased by eight, making the total
number now known of the objects 45. The
hydrogen line was shown to be bright in the
spectra of six stars in addition to those al
ready known. Photographs have been ob
tained of the spectra of eight planetary
nebulie, showing bright lines. The spec
trum ot the nebula surrounding some of
the stars is unlike that of other gaseous
nebulie. Five stars have been shown to
hare spectra of the fourth type.
Tamable Material Rapidly Accumulating.
The amount of valuable material accumu
lated with these instruments Is continually
increasing, and has proved nsefnl in many
cases in studying the put history of new
objects. The brightness for several years
past of stars suspected of variability has
been furnished to various astronomers.
Plates have been sent to the Lick and Am
herst observatories and to the Smithsonian
Institution for special investigations.
From one of them a new variable star in
Aries was discovered by Prof. Schaeberie.
It is hoped that this use of the plates may
increase in the future.
A large number of photographs were
taken of the new star in Auriga. An ex
amination of the older photographs thowejd
that that the region containing it had been
photographed 18 times from November 3,
1885, to November 2, 1891, and that it was
then apparently iainter than the 13 magni
tude. Five plates showed it between De
cember 10, 1891, and January 31, 1892. Af
ter its discovery it was photographed on 65
chart plates and 36 spectrum plates until
April 6, when it became too fa nt to be visi
ble in the encroaching twilight All of
these plates hare been carefully studied
and measured. Twenty-one charts and IS
'spectrum plates of this object hare been
taken since its reappearance in September,
1892. On 'these last plates the spectrum is
shown to resemble that of a planetary
nebula.
Some of the Photographs Taken.
Many photographs of the lunar eclipse
of November 15, 1891, were taken, both at
Cambridge and at the Boyden Observatory
in Arequipa, Peru. The examination o'f
these photographs for the detection of a
possible lunar satellite led only to a nega
tive result
The observations taken in Pern have
been very valuable Many interesting re
sults have been derived lrom the observa
tions made of the moon and various planets.
The markings of Mercury have been
studied and this investigation appears to
confirm Schlaparelli's view that the rota
tion ot Mercury on its axis occupies
the same time as its revolution in its orbit
An extensive series of observations was
also made upon Mars, and the relative
potition of 92 points upon its surface were
determined by the micrometer. More than
40 minute black points were discovered,
provisionally designated as lakes. The
Polar compression of the planet was also
measured, and appeared to be greater than
that indicated by theory, which may be due
to an excess of clouds in the equatorial re
gions. The presence of the dark and narrow
streaks called canals by Schiaparelli has
been confirmed, and various measurements
of them have been made The clouds pro
jecting beyond the limb and terminal
have been studied, and their height has
been found to be at least 20 miles. Two
large dark blue areas have been detected on
the planet, and other portions have been
noticed to be subject to gradual changes.
Many new donble stars were also found
south ol 30, between 12 H and 18 H.
The Sew Stations Established.
The august occultation of Jupiter was ob
serve d, both visually auil photographically,
also the new star in Auriga and Swift's
comet Stations hare been established at
Mallendo, 100 feet above the sea level, at
Lajoyce, whose elevation is 4, ICO leet; at the
observing station 8,060 feet high, at Cha
Chani Bavine, 16,650 feet high.
The approaching completion of the new
Bruce photographic telescope is referred to
at length by Prof. Pickering. If successful
it will be the most powerlul in the world.
The eight surfaces of its objective have
been ground and polished so that it could
be tested on a star. The results were satis
factory. The focal length proved that to be
desired, within half ot 1 per cent Plans
hare been made and the foundations laid
lor a one-story brick building with a sliding
roof, in which it will be erected daring its
trial in Cambridge. After this it is pro
posed to send it to the Arequipa station in
Peru.
The value of photographs obtained with
the transit photometer was illustrated when
the new star in Aurora was discovered, in
February, 1892. It then appeared that this
object bad been photographed on 12 nights
since December 10, 1891, while no trace of
it was visible on 13 plates covering this
region and taken before December 2, 1891.
The only knowledge that exists of its
changes of light during the six weeks in
which it remained undiicovered is furnished
by these photographs and those taken with
the eight-inch telescopes.

Maria Busbnello Firos at a Constable and
Then Tries to Shoot Her Husband Both,
Attempts Fall She Afterwards Elopes
With a Spaniard.
Maria Busbnello caused a deal of excite
ment IB the neighborhood of Eleventh
street yesterday afternoon by makinjran at
tempt to shoot a constable and afterwards
firing two shots at her husband. Mrs.
Bushnello lives with her husband, Bemeir
Bushnelio, at 1134 Liberty street About
2 o'clock yesterday afternoon J. Pirrlattl
went into Alderman Donovan's office and
made information against Mrs. Brehnello
for fraud. He said she had purchased a lot
of fine dress goods from him to the value
of $68 which she had not paid for.
He said that while Mrs. Bushnello's hus
band was away at bis place of business a
tall, dark gentleman wai a frequent caller.
He discovered that he was a South Ameri
can and came on here from New Tork about
three weeks ago, and was. transacting some
business either with or for the Carnegie
Steel Company.
A warrant was placed in the hands of
Constable Connelly. "When the officer made
known his business she laughed heartily
and said that she had no intention of run
ning away. She walked to the bureau and
picked up her hat and put it on, and then
lilted the lid of her trunk, saying to the
officer she wished to get a sacque.
She opened the lid and thrust her hand
in the trunk, wheeled suddenly and pointed
a revolver at the officer's head and without
a moment's -hesitation fired. Tbe officer
instinctively dodged. With a bound the
officer sprang and caught her by both arms.
She wrested neraelf free and grasped a pair
of scissors and made a furious'lunge at Con
nelly, lie avoided the blow and again
caught her.
Together they went to Alderman Dono
van's office, where Pirriatti was waiting for
her. She paid the $68 and costs without
protest About 5:80 in the evening Bush
nello ran into Alderman Donovan's office and
asked for an officer to arrest his wife. He
said that he came home about 5 o'clock and
found the door locked. He knocked and
his wife appeared at the window and or
dered him away. He refused to go. She
reappeared, clutching a revolver. Again
she ordered him to go, and
he refused, then she fired two shots
but neither took effect Alderman Dono
van sent him for a policeman, and together
tney went to the house, but Mri Bushnello
had disappeared. It is supposed they went
to East Liberty and boarded the train
there.

Sow Well Under Way.
ILumiSBorto. Dec. 1 The Executive Comv
mlttbe of the World's Fair met to-day ana
listened to the report of Executive Commis
sioner Farquhnr, who says the work is In
good oondltion all along the line, excopf the
progress on the State building;. There are
now on file 1,083 applications for space from
Pennsylvania exhibitors. The costof build
ing, furnishing and maintaining the State
building and the continuance of the exposi
tion, will be about $133,000. Thl building
will be presented to the Chicago authorities
at the close or the Exposition. More money
is asked for the committee on live stock,
dairies, ete, and for the Fish Commission.
The estimate orexpensesfortransportation
has been' very much reduced, owing to the
liberality or tbe railroads. The work ol the
Manufacturers' Committee is practically
finished, witU more applications for space
than tbe Chicago authorities can accommo
date. Women's work is an uncertain quan
tity as yet. Mr. Farqubar thinks tbe State
can get through and make a highly credita
ble exhibit on the $100,000 appropriated to
collecting, transporting and installing the
work of the various departments. Prof.
Louis E. Beber, in charge of the collection
or mine and oil exhibits, stated tbat tbe
large oil and coal companies and individual
operators would be lairly represented, tak
ing up all tbe room that could be given
them.
