All the parties 'interested in tha j Wheeling ball club, the Wheeling fran chise and the local grounds met yes terday. but could come to no conclu sion. The Coyle interest demanded 323 j a clay for the grouds, which Mr. Tor ' reyson declined to pay. He offered 510, j which was rejected, and the result is that while there is a Wheeling club in name, there is not in fact. The club will play at Mansfield to-day and to morrow, and will be at New Castle all of next week and probably at Youngs town all of the week after. The fu ture movemcnis of the club are uncer tain. but it will probably settle down I at Canton. Mr. Torreyson will leave the cit vthis morning to look after the | club personally. He has about given up hope of making any deal for the g-cunds this year, and the season is too far advanced to locate and fix up new grounds, but he said last night he would be here by a large majority next season and would have better grounds than ever before. Thus per ishes miserably the Wheeling season of 1897. NATIONAL LEAGUE. St. Louis, August 5.—The Browns wen the opening game from the Pitts burgs.

The Queen City Claimed to Have Crowded Against the Steamer Bonanza- Happened in an Excit ing Boat Race on the River in Which the Bonanza Was Dis tanced—The Boats Collided in the Race and Caused Considera ble Excitement Among the Pas sengers. Charges have been made at Cincin nati by CapL James T. Campbell, mas ter of the steamer Bonanza, against one of the pilots of the Queen. City, claiming that the latter boat crowded upon the course of the Bonanza on the morning of July 31st, between Chilo and Bradford bar. The officers of the Queen City claim that the Bonanza did the crowding. The boats met about 1:30 a. m., and it seems to have been the desire of the officers of both steamers to have a race. The officers of the Queen City claim the Bonanza tried to cross her head for the purpose of throwing her back when she was getting the best of the race. At all events the boats came to gether with considerable force, caus ing a shock great enough to waken the passengers on both. The boats re mained locked together for a short time. The Queen City poured water over the decks of the Bonanza, and, according to the statement of one of the crew, put eighteen inches of water in her hold. On the return trip out of Cincinnati, both boats prepared for a race. The Bonanza left about five minutes ahead cf the Queen City and the latter overtook her at Coney Isl and. Capt. Philip Anshutz was at the wheel of the Queen City when she overtook the Bonanza and he, it is said, crowded the latter boat! They locked together and raced fully an hour up stream, being held against each other by the current as if they were lashed together. The steward of ! the Bonanza came on board the Queen City and shook hands with the pas sengers while both boats were going fully fourteen miles an hour. There was considerable excitement among the passengers when the boats got close together, but their fears were soon al layed. . The steatners, after pacing side by side for an hour, finally got apart, the Bonanza dropping In the rear. The passengers were glad when it was over. The deck of the Queen City was cov ered with cinders. ARRIVALS. Lorena, Zanesvilie. H. K. Bedford, Charleston. Queen City, Pittsburg. Argand. Parkersburg. Ruth. Sistersville. Leroy, Clarington. T. M.

The sudden drop in the river is accounted for by the raising of the wickets at Merrill, which has dammed up the water at thet point. Owing to the dam the water pours through the opening allowed for fhe steamboats it the rate of about 20 miles an hour, making it exceedingly difficult for the boats going up stream to get through against this strong current. Coming down the boats are also in danger be cause they find it hard to right them sel ves while in the swift stream. The beautiful Virginia yill be up early this morning for Pittsburg, and will return to Cincinnati Sunday, leav ing here-at 8 a. m. Saturday the Bedford will leave at 6:30 a. m. for Charleston and the W. J. Cummins for Cincinnati at 4 p. m. The force of government engineers who have been surveying the Ohio river between here and Pittsburg for a series of locks and dams to be put along the river from Pittsburg to Marietta, have gotten down to just above Martin’s Ferry on their work, and wljl be jn this locality for several days of a week. Some of them came down to the eitv on Edna, the small packet which is transporting them along the river. William Wolfe, of Short Creek, for merly a steamboat captain residing at West Wheeling, yesterday underwent a successful operation for the removal ofa cataract from his eye. The opera tion was performed by Dr. Sadler, of Pittsburg. Rivermen are growing Impatient since they have gained free navigation or the Monongahcla for new fields of activity. They are now agitating the pushing of the work of construction for two dams between Davis Island and Merrill, for which the riioney Is available. Wednesday evening at 5 o’clock the new steamer Robert E. Lee was suc cessfully launched at Jeffersonville. The new boat is 240 feet in length. 42 feet beam and 6% feet depth of hold. Her engines are of the most improved pattern and are 24 inches in diameter, with 7-:oot stroke. The boilers will be of steel and four in number. The Lee is a side-wheeler and will have a full cabin and Texas. The entire boat will be lighted by electricity. When finished she will be the finest steamer flop.ting on Southern waters. She is built for the Lee line, and will run be tween New Orleans and Memphis. Capt. Ira Huntington is spending the present week at his home in Gallipolis, he having stopped off a trip for a rest. Capt. George W. Bay, one of the own ers of the boat, has command of the Kanawha during his absence. Capt. John McNair, of the steamer Ruth, called yesterday at the office of Harbor No. 28, Masters and Pilots. The Ruth is towing French's snow boat. the New Sensatidon. which ar rived from the Ohio river yesterday morning. The outfit will leave for the Illinois river in a day or two.—St Lculs paper. The wharfboat at Moundsville sprung a. leak and sank a few days ago. She will be raised aad repaired. Henry Best, a former well known river clerk, is one of the owners of the wharfboat at Marietta. The ferryboat Ollie Neville, of New i Martinsville, is lying on the river bed, she having sunk in six feet of water several days ago. v The towboat Harry Brown is being brought out cf No. 1 pool. She was built at Brown’s station, but is larger than the big lock at No. 1 lock. In order to g°i her below the lock it be came necessary to build a coffer dam below the lock gate on the Pittsbuig end. This is now being done, an<l she will probably be able to reach the harbor to-morrow. She will then be taken to Marietta, where she will re vive her machinery.—Pittsburg paper.

TO JOIN THE STRIKE. Leaders Among the Miners Claim That All the Miners of Wheeling and Vicinity, Including Boggs' Run and Glendale, Will Be Out Next Week. Last night the miners of the vicin ity o£ Benwood held a meeting to dis cuss the local mining situation and to consider plans to induce the working miners of Wheeling and neighborhood to come out in sympathy with the gen eral strike. No definite plan was adopt ed. but the meeting was not unsatis factory. The miners depended to some extent upon the meeting to have been addressed in this city by W. D. Mahon last night. Wm. Anderson, who is at the head of the miners organization of this district, stated last night to a Register reporter that he was satisfied that next week all the miners of Wheel ing. Benwood, Elm Grove and Glendale would be out. He based this predic tion on assurances which he had re ceived and which he did not consider doubtful. He stated at Elm Grove fifty miners were out and about four teen working. At Boggs' run the ma jority were working, but there were some who remained out and wanted the others to join the strike. At Glen dale about all were working and not only furnishing coal to the B. & O. en gines but shipping it outside and furn ishing the Wheeling Iron and Steel Company with a supply. The Benwood miners have refused to go to work and are still out. -o The programme for the Dillon. Wheat & Hancher Company’s Diamond Bicy cle meet, this afternoon, is a great one.

The “National Association of Rail , way Agents” will hold Its first annual contention at the Hollenden Hotel, Cleveland, Ohio, August 17, 18 and 19. The subjects to be discussed are as follows: “The relations between local and commercial agents from a social and traffic standpoint.” “What methods can this association adopt to further its ftuerests and in crease its membership?” “How can meetings of local divisions be made more interesting and profita ble?” “Legitimate use of tracers in hand ling of freight traffic—their us? and abuse.” “Taking up original bill of lading upon delivery of freight.” “What is the best method of making prompt settlement of claims?" “Have local freight agents the right to allow the inspection of goods billed to shipper’s order, without surrender ing the original bill of lading, pro viding such shipments are not billed with notation on way-bill: ’To allow inspection before delivery.’ The iden tification of original hills of lading on shipments billed to shipper's or der.” “Use and misuse of abbreviations in way-billing shipments.” “Seniority ip making promotions.’’ “Practical methods of filing tariffs and percentages by local agents.’’ “Duties of an agent to the public.” “Station duties.” “Trials and tribulations of a ticket agent.” The National^ Association of Rail ' way Agents is less than one year old. ; having been organized at Youngs town. Ohio, in February, 1897. Three or four years ago the station agent* , had a thriving order, which came to an untimely end through mismanage ment and disloyalty of some of its officers. The organization of to-day in cludes many of the members of the old organization who. though not bound by the ties of a fraternal or- J der, have during the interium cherished and fostered a spirit of good fellow ship among themselves and were not content until again more closely united in the bonds of fraternal organization. Though young, the association is pros perous and rapidly increasing in members. It is expected the coming meetine: will be a well attended one and will mark an epoch of rapid growth in the order. , Agents, cashiers, commercial and traveling freight agents and traveling auditors are the classes eligible to membership.

A Ytluiblt Hint to Jlvery Father and Mother, There are two kinds of babies in the world; the kind who have too little nourishment and the kind who have too much. % The first kind of babies starve be cause their stomachs are too weak to digest the amount of food necessary for their growth and healthful devel opment and the other kind are over fed with the result that the delicate stomach and intestines are inflamed and as every mother knows, thousands of infants die yearly when warm weather begins, from stomach and bowel disorders. Opiates, soothing syrups and cathar tics, however mild, are not what is de manded. Go to the root of the trouble, assist the child’s digestion, give the little stomach the aid necessary to thoroughly and promptly digest its food and the little one will thrive and grow and gladden the mother's heart. To give perfect digestion to the child it is only necassary to give in a pleas ant form the harmless digestive con tained in the well known tablets sold j in drug stores under the name of I Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets contain no so-called drugs, hut are composed of pepsin, pure aseptic, fruit ANds. starch diges tives and are put up in lozenge form, with sugar of milk, very pleasant to the taste, and have been used for years as the safest, best remedy for any form of Indigestion and stomach troubles in adults, but recently many remarkable cures have been made in the cases of weakly babies who failed to grow and thrive as they should. A Buffalo mother a short time ago who despaired of the life of her babe, was so delighted with the results from giving the child these tablets that she went before the notary public of Krio county. N. Y., and made the following affidavit; Gentlemen—Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tab lets were recommended to me for my two months old baby, which was sick and puny and the doctors said was suffering from indigestion. T took th« child to the hospital, but there found no relief. A friend mentioned the Stuart Tablets and 1 procured a box from mv* druggist and used on.y the large sweet lozenges in the box and was delighted to find they were just the thing for my baby. I feel justified in saying that. Stu art's Dyspepsia Tablets saved rty child’s life. MRS. \V. T. DETHI.OPF. Subscribed and sworn to before ms this 12th day of April. 1897. HENRY KARIS.

An Attorney Takes an Interest in a Fulton Lad and Saves Him From the Reform School. A ''ftse was heard before Squire Haberfield last night, in which the Mayor, Marshal and several Council men and citizens of Kill ton testified. These parties appeared to state what they knew about the character of Geo. Bowen, a lad of about twelve yean of age, who was charged with vagran cy and brought before the Justico f<r the purpose of sending him to the re form school. It. Ryan took charge of the boy’s case and succeeded In clear ing him of any criminal Imputations, and was given charge and authority to place the boy somewhere where he would be given a home and have proper Influences. The witnesses stated that after the boy’s mother had died his father, who was worthless, had loft Fulton and refused to cire for the l^oy. He had been permitted to roam wound, sleeping in oiit-buildfngs and going for days without anything to eat ex cept what he could pick up. He had been leading this vagrant life for some tim**. and at the last meeting of the Fulton Council they considered me boy s case, and it was thought well to send him to a reform school, where he would he given a home, get schooling and learn a trade. They were actuated bv a humane mo tive and by an Interest In the boy, whom they knew to be worthy of en couragement and help. Attorney Ryan, however, objected strongly to the boy being sent to a reform school and sharply criticised any such plans, stating that It was only an Institu tion for boys guilty of criminality and who were too young to be sent to the penitentiary, ye argued that as the boy had not been charged with any criminal act he was not a cindidate for the reform school, and should be given a home where he would have an opportunity to make a man out of himself. The Fulton witnesses en dorsed Mr. Ryan’s stand, and the lat ter was left in charge of the boy to get him a home. -o SMITH-I IENCON WEDDING.
