Tho willingness of State's Attorney Carter to accept $10,000 bail is con strued as a tacit admission that he does not believe Miss Dodge will bo convictod of tho murder by tho court, and that tho case will never get further than tho Grand Jury. Mr. Cartor admitted as much. Ho paid: 'It will bo difficult to convict Miss Dodge, I fear. Kabcock's friends will not prosf?cuta her, but waut to let the matter drop.

There is at j reKont a base-ball union, called tho Brotluihood of League Base-Ball IMayt-is, of which Ward, of Sew York, is l'resi dent, and before next week is out the brotheihoodwiil have informed the League managers fully of what it intends to de mand, and the presumption is that most of its demands will be satisfied. There is as yet no talk of strikes or lockouts, and it is hoped that the settlement will be an amic able one, for it ia felt on all 6 ides that if the brotherhood should take the bit in its teeth tho disruption of the National League would bo tho result. The brotherhood is weaker in Chicago than other cities, only Williamson, l'fetler and Flint being members, but the Chicago club ban to stand or fall with tho League, and if it is broken in New York, Detroit, Boston and l'hiladelphia President Spald ing will find his occupation gone. Jutt as 6urely, also, if it comes to a tight, tho sym pathy of the publio will be with the ball players. THE SEW ULM MASSACUE. Celebration of tlin Twritty-flftli Aunlver aury of til Itattle. New Ulm (Minn.) telegram. Tuesday was the twenty-fifth anniversary of the battle of New Ulm, and the city gave a right royal welcome to the surviving de fenders who, a quarter of n century ago, risked their lives in her defense. It was at a timo when the drafts upon Minnesota for the civil war hod taken away many of her able-bodied citizens, leaving comparatively few to defend the firesides. The Indians seized this opportunity, and then followed the great Sioux mnsHacre, the most san pu nary conflict of which was the battlo of New l lm. But Colonel Charles Flaudrau, now of St. l'aul, and n few well-armed men camo from St. Peter aud the town was saved. Numbers of the old defenders were nt New I hn from Mnnknto, St. Paul, Le Sueur, St. Peter, and other cities. All the street j weio gayly decorated. A Woman Ofllee-liolilcr. Miss Minna II. Pollock is the first lady ever appointed Commissioner of Deeds in New York City. Sho is tho daughter of Julius L. Pollock, of Hamburg. Germany, and Mrs. Llliot Haswell Pollock, of Olas gow, Scotland. Miss Tollock was born at 71 Manchester, England, and was soon taken by her parent to Hamburg, and three years thereafter to New York City. Sho received her education at Glasgow and in England, completing it in Vienna, Austria. She is a lady of wide travel and experi ence. There is a curious law in vogue in Switzerland, which compels every new ly married couplo to plant trees ahortly after tho marriage ceremony. The trees ordered to Le planted on wedding days are the pine and weeping willow, but on natal days tho suggestive birch treo is selected. Iodise, hitherto known in naturo only in combination with other ele ments, is now found in a freo state in tho water of Woodhall Spa, near Lin coln, in England. The water is colored a decided brown by tho iodine. UPON THE BALL FIELD. How the Clubs Stand for the Eigh- tesntli Week of the L:ajue Pennant Raco Chlcnjros (Jreat (Jame with Detroit lie cord of League Pi tcbers and Catchers. CniCAfJO CORRESPONDENCE. J The close of the eighteenth week of the League pennant race for lHh7 finds t he Western clubs doing battle upon Eastern ground with their Eastern rivals. Tho Detroit team still leads the League clubs in the race, and the Philadelphia team by splendid work has passed Mike Kelly's men in the strag gle for front place and is now close upon the heels of the New York giants for third place. It would surprise no one to see the Phillies in third placo and leading both New York and Boston before another week passes. The Chicago team closed its third home season la6t week upon the Chicago grounds in the final games of the series begun on Saturday, the 13th inst., with Detroit, and it is needUss to say that tLese games will exist for many a day to ccnii in the recol lection of all who witnessed them. In team work, in brilliancy of fielding, in woutUrful spurts of batting, in base-running, m splendid pitching, in individual and collective playing, the work of these two teams wan something which the most gifted pen could but faintly outline, how ever greatly iuspiied. Each game was a battle of the giants from first tp last, and in n' tempting to give just credit to those of the players who most deserve it one is Euzzled where to begin. Wiih but little esltation, however, it can safely be said that of tho twenty or more players who participated in tho three game-, none did udder work than did John Clarkson. Starting in upon Saturday, he gave such an exhibition of pitching skill as is seldom seen. Not only did he show himself master of the ball from the pitcher's standpo'nt, but without exaggeration it may be said that if it is possible for one man to win a balLav game, Clarkson accomplished tho feat in the first onie of the series with Detroit. In his delivery upon that day Lo . reemed bent upon showing the 1 If,' 0t) people pres ent every strategy and peculiarity known in the sconce of uidern pitching, and befng familiar, through careful und systematfo study, with the batting peculiarities of every Detroit batsman who faced him, he was wonderfully effective. It may safely be said, brilliant as his record has been, that Clarkson never covered his position in such splendid form, lie nulled down and stopped balls from the bat that many a man upon the lines of the diamond would Dave limit a ted before, and with the bat in his hands he was a tower of strength to his team. He went in again Monday and pitched another winning game, making al most as brilliant a record as upon the Saturday before. He went in again on Tuesday, ond al though he pitched a reat game for Chica go, Detroit won by a lucky stroke of bat ting and some really wonderful work in the field. To show hew determined De troit was to win the third and last game of the series, a little iecn of strategy upon the part of Getz4 aud Bennett the De troit battery may be cited. It was full of risk, and might have lost them the game; but, fortunately for Detroit, it was suc cessfully accomplished, and saved the game to them. It was in the eighth in ning, with PfefYer upon second base and Sullivan upon third, whtn Williamson came to bat. Three strikes had been called upon Ed, who throughout the game seemed .wholly unable to gau:e "Pretzel's" de livery. When just ns he was al- 1 roost in the act of sending the ball over the plate ngein, Getz stopped and called Bennett down the path toward him. The two conversed for ten seconds in low tone?, Getzein the while glancing toward Sullivan on third. Then they separated, and Get zein, stepping back intr he box, sent & ball over the plate on a Ve with William son's head. The next ball was to one 6ide of tho plate and low down, with but little speed. Nevertheless, it struck Bennett's hand squarely, bounded off about ten feet to ono side (the result of an intentional mulf t, and Sullivan started iu from third. Getz jumped toward the plato almost at the same moment the ball left his hand, and received the ball from Bennett, who captured it with a single bound, easily put ting Sullivan out at the home base. Then the Detroiters started in for their bench and tho White Stockings vent to the field. The nature of Bennett and Getzein's little consultation dawned upon tho spectators, and a roar of mingled laughs and cheers went up from the big crowd. Since Chicago's departure for the East it has not played the ball expected of it. Of the four games commenced with Pitts burgh, one was postponed by rain with the Pittsburghs in the lead when game was called, two were won by Pittsburgh and one by Chicago. Detroit is playing much too strong a gamo just now for Chicago to let down in its speed, even a little bit.
