It lift* been known by a few persons
for several weeks that an effort was
bring malde 'to secure "Jack" Darrah,
who oo otfily unwaged aixl captained
tho Twin Citlw team of Inst season, -to
ai't 5n a similar capacity for tho Wheelings
of 'the Inter-state league this
season. The Intelligencer Iras started
ou several occasions tha't such a move
wouU prove popular and there Is no
reason to doubt 'the 'truth of <thc assertion.
Of oourso Darrah, who Is an
aggressive player on .t?he field, was
distasteful ?to somcpotrons of the game
hen* Hurt jwr, but K makes all the difference
in the world what kind of a unlAirm
a man Is wearing. Had Darrah
pursued the soimc tactics last season
in .a WliNllng -uniform 5io would hnve
btji-n a popular hero two. .Aggressive,
nappy m>rk is wtait -the bail cranks
want and Darroh will give H rto them
.i plenty." "Count Darraughe"
Wheeling "fans" ealu-te you.
In a lotitcr to tihe writer. Presldwit
Charles B. Power, of Wio Ix>ter-?tate
league. says thtvl he, wk'h Mr. McKee,
tfiie new owner of the club, and Al.
Buckenberger. will be here to-day to
o?:!??rt>jrt to i?t:o4ghten out.the affairs of
the club. It Is oiitcertAy hoped "that tlioy
will 1>e abk? !<? do business on the
grounds proportion as otherwise tliere
will be no ball club here this season.
Mr. Wrijchit spenrt a woek in etmoirt
effort in VMs direction but it all came
to naught. It Is possible Messrs. Power.
Bnckentoerger nnd McKee may accomplish
something, hut the outlook
for grounds could not at the present
moment be darker.
The Intelligencer does not desire to
say anything of Mr. Moreland that
cannot be borne out by the facts. However,
it is without doubt better that
' ? ??-i. U'hMlIno

team. Morehwd has done som? work
and tt 1s promised -that he will be recompensed*
for his efforte. For some
reason he seemed noc to impart confidence
Jn the patrons of the game
Ciere, possibly on account of his unfortunatft
(allures fit Steubenvllte and Akron
last year. Them again, It was
tfcotight wise to have a playing manager,
and for this position there is none
better than the (oKlcmaa from Fotterytlom?Jack

Special Dispatch to the Intelligences
PITTSBURGH. Feb. Si?There appeared
in a Wheeling paper yesterday a
telegram signed by George L. Moreland,
of this city, in which that gentleman denied
that the Wheeling franchise In the.
Inter-state league had been granted to
Mr. Charles I. McKee. According to
the telegram, which, by the way. Mr.
Moreland says he did not send, an effort
is made to create the Impression
that Moreland has been given the
"throw-down," and that he objects to
letting the franchise go to Mr. McKee
?n>M? h? fMorolnnd) In Dermitted to re
tnln an Interest In the same.
Mr. Moreland said this morning that
he did not send any such "telegram to
the Wheeling paper, but admitted that
he did notify the paper In qu*-stlon that
the deal for the franchise had not been
made, and could not b^raade without
his consent.
In orde? to place Mr. MclTce In a proper
light before the public the following
statement Is Riven out by the president
of the Interstate league, Mr. J. U.
Power, of this city.
"Wednesday of last week, when Mr.
Wright of. Wheeling, notified me by
telephone that ho had been unable to secure
grounds, and that perhaps It would
be Just a* well for the league to look for
some other city, I. told him that tht,
league could not think of dropping
Wheeling, and suggested that he continue
his efforts to secure suitable
grounds, and that the matter would be
held open for a few days. Mr. Moreland
was present at the time I had this
conversation with Mr. Wright over the
telephone, and, turning to him, I Maid:
'IT Mr. Wttgnt does not mane twine uen!
nlte arrangements by Saturday the
fmnohlse will go to some ono else. We
cannot wait all summer to get things In
shape.' Mr. Moreland said he thought
he could get a man to put up the money
for him, and requested me not to be In a
hurry about disusing of the franchise.
Saturday afternoon Mr. Charles I. McKee
called upon me and expressed a 'left
I re to take hold of the Wheeling club.
I explained to him that Mr. Moreland
l hnd signed a number of players for
Wheeling, that he had done considerable
work and that I would not let any
one have the Wheeling franchise until
Mr. Moreland had been reimbursed for
his trouble. Sir. McKee raid he would
see Mr. Moreland and fix things up with
that gentleman. He then deposited 1-5
as an option on the franchise, the matter
to be held open until Mr. Moreland
had given his consent to the deal.
About 7 o'clock Saturday evening I received
this note from Mr. Moreland:
Friend Power:~I wns to have met Mr.
McKee at your office at 7 o'clock, but
have Just received a message summoning
me home. Tell Mr. McKee that 1
I have thought the matter over, have
carefully considered .his offer, and as I
have fixed matters up with the Times
! so that my resignation will bo recalled,
I I have consented to his offer of $ for
my Interest and the players I have
signed. If Mr. McKee comes In. get
him to draw up the papers. 1 will en,
doavor to see him to-morrow.
Yours,
MORELAND.
"Upon receipt of this note from Mr.
Moreland 1 notified Mr. McKee that his
1 offer for the franchise had been accepted.
as Mr. Moreland had Informed me
that everything was all right; that ho
had accepted Mr. McKcc's offer.

The Bridgeport parties who are Interested
In drilling a well for oil at Fairpoint,
Ohio, have nil arrangements
completed to commence drilling at
once. The derrick was built some time
ago. but drilling has been unavoidably
delayed on aocount of the scarcity of
competent and reliable contractor#. A
contract has been entered into with
Wallace and Watson. reliable and exI>ert
operators, to drill tho well at once.
The contractors who are drilling the
Hiller well on A roller's Pork, left
Bridgeport last Wednesday promising
to resume drilling the well and continue
on to and through the Beroa sand.
There was a slight mlnunderstandlng
between the contractors and the
Bridgeport 01! and Gas Company on
account of shooting the shallow sand,
but an amicable agreement to go on
was arrived at
Home time ago It was erroneously reported
by a Wheeling paper that Mayor
William*, of Bridgeport, would not be
a candidate for re-election for a second
term. Tho report was unwarranted
nnd was calculated to injure an elllclent
and competent officer In his promising
prospects for re-eleotlon. Mayor Williams
is a candidate, and Is suld to be
a very lively one. too.
