It Is tho first timo in the history
of tariff legislation that a duty on

Tho amendment was proHscd by

THE NATIONAL LEAGUE GAMES.
The morning paper did tho Nashville
boys n-gross injustice In saying
they were "on their uppers." Thero
are two cities hot after tho club, Decatur,
111., aud Owensboro, Ky., but
tho league has given Nashville llvo
days in which to put up a bonus that
they will pull through tho season.
There aro n great mauy In Nashville
who want to keel) the club, and it Is
probablo that tho requisite steps will
be taken to retain it. In case she
does not, howecr,JDecatur's chance
almost insine her the club.
The boys are in good trim, nneV
while they put ap a bad gaino ycstcr
day, so did l'aducah. All tho cluli
that was here before is hero now, except
three. These are Cleve, the
catcher, who went over to Detroit for
;yc5tiB!iJaij, iiiifoni, llieJel fielder
who is now viih Wilkesbarre, Pa.,
anil Hrott, who is manager of new
learn at Jackson, Tcuu. Dillnrd i
the man with a batting record, and
!u the heaviest hitter in Central
Yesterdaj'f game between Nashville
and I'adtiuuh was totally devoid
of 'ginger," anil both sides, seemingly,
played in a indifferent
manner. This may bo accounted
for in various ways, but one of tho
principal reasons was thnt tho attendance
was so Hinall. Hoth pitchers
wero bajted all over the Held, but the
lidding was good.
Three home runs wero made b
l'aducah, by Murray, Stanton and
the, latter making the circuit
on an error. Each side had two
double iitarit to its credit. Pear-
pitched forl'aducah aud N.oonau
held down llrit base, Sudhoff going
to right field. Thero was no enthusiasm,
and tho score was 11 to 3.

Judge Hishop decided the habeas

at 0 :J0 o'clock yesterday afternoon,
thu victory being won by Hitter and
his Attorney, Col. H. T. Lightfoot,
so far as the Jackson, Tenn., case is
concerned. In the Illinois
Hitter was ordered to jail to be
turned over to Oillcer Elhott.of Chi
cago, when ho arrives. A requisition,
was already here, and all necessary
in this case was to
the identity of the prisoner, who admitted
himself that his name was the
'sumo as that in the requisition, and
that ho ias tho ono accused therein.
Had bo not done this tin authorities
would have been unable to establish
tho fact that ho was Ira H. Hitter,
the man wanted at Chicago, aud

of tho fiberly

It must be shown that a prosecution

tho state in which ho was wanted.
The la ill Kentucky, ho baid, is dif

and the faot that a prosecution is

the accused is a fugitive therefrom,

it did havo a certificate that

it was a regularly acting justice
