E a BC3T0S this iRi pinnint wishes, cv ’sTumttl Over the Tailenden the Put Week Lose Them the Rag—New York’s Rocky Work grips Boston ia the Simple—Sallitna Stranded—General Sporting News. f ' HO had the foresight to predict tho unexpected tumble * which Chicago took the past week? Blessed is he, for he shall be rich. With seven scheduled and one postponed game to play Chicago looked like a sure winner. She was to un?m» vi^vuiaiiu ivi three games on the latter’s grounds, ami Cincinnati, tho tall-enders, for the same “number of games on her owu grounds, while Boston was to con test with such clubs as New York and Philadelphia. But Boston broke Anson’s heart when she won six strights without a defeat, and that, too, right at the time when Chicago lost four out of tive. Boston had too firm a grip to allow Anson a show. Another surprise is the six straight games lost by New York this week. And New Yor k’s death bed was largely Boston’s life. Pittsburg’s drop was not unexpected and Cincinnati, by her great work the past wreek, has shoved poor Pitts burg in the last notch. In the Asso ciation the Boston team long since di vested the race of interest by her big lead. Both League and Association pennants will land iu Boston this year, a thing without precedent Pittsburg In the Dump*. The ball season of 1SSI, the most dis appointing one ever encountered by Pittsburg, closed yesterday. There is a very marked contrast between the open ing and closing of the season in this lo cality. When the club started out it carried with it the brightest hopes of its patrous, who watched it with honest pride and with an ardor and in such numbers that made this city the most enthusiastic aud paying In tho League circuit. The turu-stllesspun around in cessantly, and had very little time to treak. or if they did complain their growls were drowned by the Joyous laughter of the eager crowds. But from the onening day to the clojitig the club insisted on plodding along over a rocky and barren road, dragging the pubiic’s bright hopes in tho dust. This dis eased the majority of its followers who turned back disgusted, and let the club go on to destruction, which it speedily did. Before the end of May the Pittsburgs had gone up and down tho ladder with tantalizing jumps. On the 21st of that mouth they were in the second place, with a percentage of of .560 the highest p.nnt and position of the season. Then came the disastrous first Eastern trij, on which they won but three games and jost i3. They returned home in seventh i,i«ee, with a percentage of .200. The irons were irclined to excuse the bad •old because the infield, weak froir start, was made weaker by the ab iMorhauen, who wjj^ 1 ft a hole lu tho ouiB-U, which was u©< filled for weeks. Shugart’s acquisition a little later, although It strengthened the Infield, did not stop the downward march of the team, and by August 1 It had dropped to the bottom of the pile In eighth place, with a percentage of .407. Ed. Hanlon was now deposed from the managership. The attempt to make a scrapegoat of him did not succeed with the public. He had been hampered by the president of the club, who insisted on Interfering in the management of the team, remitting ffnes that had been Im posed and even ordering the manage ment to take a back seat. Such conduct of course was not conductivo to good discipline, and this in addition to tho crippled condition of the team was tho cause of its poor work. Under Hanlon’s management the club won 41 games and lost 47. Mcuunmgie was engaged ana at once set to work in his own way to bring the team up. Corkhlil add Lally were sec ured for the outfield, Carroll was dumped and Miller placed behind the bat. Stronger than ever at every point, with the pitchers in fine form, the team could not leave eighth place until Au gust 20. when, after winning five out of six games, defeating the Cincinnatis three times in succession. It captured seventh place and has not gone lower since. lJalwiu now began his record of 11 straight victories, the team made a gallant tight In the East and swung it self into fifth position. Then it again fell back most disastrously. Its down fall was as sudden and unexpected as its brilliant spurt in the East. After winning nine out of 11 games it stopped short and won but two out of 14, drop ping to within a few points of last place. LIKE A HIPPODROME. How Chicago Cranks Regard the Closing •»f the League Race. Chicago. October 3.—Anson and his disgruntled team arrived home this morning in no enviable frame of mind. They denounce in no measured terms the work of the Eastern clubs, claiming the race to be simply a hippodrome. While In Cleveland, and still in the lead, Anson declared that he could not win; that he would not be allowed to win by the Eastern clnbs. lie blames New York particularly for Its work. When he was In Gotham Rusie was pitched against him two games and Ew lag one, while against Boston two of his own failures of last year, Coughlin and Sullivan, were worked in the bulk of the games. The feeling here over the matter Is intense, and It looks as though tha game had been hurt beyond redemption here. Of course, a winter’s rest may smooth the cranks wrinkled brows, but at pres ent they regard tho race as a hippo drome. Intelligent people here laugh at the idea of Boston being able to win seventeen straight gamos with Pitts burg and the strong eastern clubs. It does look absurd certainly. BASE BALL NOTES. Clarence L. Childs Is on Cleveland’s ’92 list. Boston takes both ewers of cream this year. Louisville has signed Tommy Cahill for next year. Jimmie McAleer and Jesse Burkett have both signed with Cleveland for’93. Baltimore is said to be hitting its . hook for Manager Cushman, o^kfeo Mil waukee*.

Ian papers, per steamship Monawah which arrived late last night from Syd ney, concur In stating that John L. Sullivan’s theatrical tour of the colonies has been a failure. Before the Monowai left Sydney it was understood the company was to taoe return passage on that vessel to America, but later it was learned that the actors were stranded and were awaiting remittances from this country. Dixon to Meet Johnston. Montreal, October 3.—O’Rourke, George Dixon’s manager, says that Dixon will meet Fred Johnsten in Eng land, In April, for $10,000 a side and a purse for the same amount. Lord Lons dale has concluded the matter. Maher Is En Route. Nkw York, October 3.—Billy Madden has received a dispatch stating that Peter Maher, the heavy-weight cham pion of Ireland is en route. On his ar rival he willchallcngo all heavyweights. “Sailor” Brown, who claims the mid dleweight championship of America, offered to tight Jim Hall at 154 pounds, or any middleweight in America. He says he failed in making a match in En gland and is anxious to fight here. “I rung In on a fellow here,” he adds. “He was called the ‘Killer’ and I was called the ‘Stowaway.’ I stopped him In two punches—a swinging pivot aud a smash in the stomach. I claim the middleweight championship. None will tight me.” Brown’s address is No. 738 Lagancheterie street, Montreal. The manager of the strong men, Cy clops and Sandowe, says that he is still i anxious to back them against Louis Cyr. As the latter is in Montreal, there seems no chance of a match. He says further that he does not take J. W. Kennedy’s bet that his men can not raise and hold a 2G5 pound dumbbell with one band, because Cyr has uever done this, his record being 232 pounds. If Cyr will come to town he declares he will put up $500 or $1,000 that his men can beat him oven at this feat, but both must do the work at the same tirao. Hi9 men will not compete against records but against men. Two Pittsburg sprinter*. George Smith and Steve Farrell, two local Pittsburg sprinters, have been makiDg an effort to get up a race of 300 yards for $500 a side. A race will likely bo mad© this week. SPORTING NOTES. The California club will not give a $2,500 purse for Griffin and Van Heest. There is considerable talk in sporting circles of matching Ed Smith against Billy Woods. G. P. Mills, the English champion bicyclist, has made the journey from Lands End to John O’Groat’s In 4 days 4 hours and 15 minutes, beating his previous record by 21 hours. The San Francisco people are again offering to put Joe McAuiiffe, the “Mission Boy,” against some heavy weight. Kilrain and Oodfroy have been both invited to come up, but neither has replied. Yesterday tho Pa cific Clnb sent a telegram to tho Illun trated Xeics asking to havo Patsy Car diff sent out there. E. M. Bescher, the champion light weight, has sent a challenge to the Pa lice Gazette in New York to fight Tom my Warren in the Olympic Club, at N**w Orleans, for the largest purse th< <*-lub "U1 offer. SiwnW 1 the sam** offer is open Me Lanuf, or New Jersey. Paddy Smith, with his backer anc Denny Gallagher, called at the Polla Gazette office yesterday to ascertain il Austin Gibbons had covered the S10( Smith had posted with Richard K. Foa to tight Gibbons at 133 or 135 pouuds foi $1,000 a side. Smith and his backei were informed that Gibbons had refused to arrange any match, claiming that SI,000 was no Incentive for him to ar range a match, because it would cost him $500 to train. Smith said that Aus tin Gibbons had fought Mike Cushing aud other pugilists for less than $1,000, and why he should refuse to tight him must be because he was afraid. “I don’t think Gibbons is even a good am ateur, and to give him au opportunity I will tight him for $1,500 a side at 133 pounds, give or take two pounds, and will meet him at the Police Gazette office any day he name9 to arr&uge a match. If Giboons is afraid to fight I will meet Andy Bowen or Patsey Kerrigan upon the same terms.” CLARKSBURG. Ci.ARRsr.uRO, W. \ a., October 3.—On Friday evening four hundred and fifty-two voters of tbe town of Clarsk burg present ed to tho Council the following petition: “Your petitioners, citizens of tho town, respectfully ask your honorable body to ! subrntt to the voters of tho town a proposi tion to establish a system of sewerage in the town, and to raise the money therefor by loan. “Your petitioners think this should be j done with a view to both the health j and material prosperity of the town. The town is supplied with an abundance of water through its ef ficient water works to keep the sewer pipes, when once laid, clear of accumula tions of filth, and the filth can be disposed of in such a way as not to be injurious to the health and’ comfort of any one. The present system of receiving and retaining night soil in the pits of water closets and privies is always attended with danger to the health of the people of a town the size of Clarksburg, especially where the soil is underlaid with a stratum of quicksand, such as is found in Clarksburg. We be lieve such a system can be provided at mod erate cost, and in such a way as not to add materially to the taxes of the people of the town. We are informed that an efficient system of sewerage for the town can be es tablished at a cost of not exceeding fifteen thousand dollars.” On next Thursday evening the petitioners will nresent an ordinance for adoption by the Council, to be submitted for ratification to the voters of the town. The physicians also submitted to the Council with peti tioners a statement of the sanitary condi tion of the towa, and recommendation for prompt action, signed by the following physicians: D. P. Morgan, D. W. Bow cock. J. W. Ramsay, J. L. Carr, Jenning Howell, J. M. Bowcock, and W. Peck. The Council in the near future propose to to take steps to ascertain why the Governor of the State has not requested the Board of Directors of the Insane Asylum to abate the nuisance at Weston, pursuant to the order of the Legislature. On Wednesday Dr. Fleming Howoll, of this city, was married to Miss Gertrude Bennett, of Weston. The ceremony was conducted by Rev. LacyJ and John Hart. M. S. Holt and J. B. Bannon acted as ush ers. The happy contracting parties have the congratulations of their many friends in this and Lewis counties. The next Conference of the M. E. Church South will be held in this city. Col. Matt M. Cooper is In' Clarksburg, preparing to start a daily paper. This will make five papers. Let the good work go on. Clarksburg can easily support twelve papers, so come on, ye newspaper men, and reap the golden harvest in store for you. Rufus Haywood, commissioner of the World’s Fair, is looking Up exhibits in this countv for that exposition. Tariff reform clubs are getting organized throughout the county. A lodge of Knights of Pythias was insti tuted at Salem this week.

Washington, October 1.—Who will be the leaders on the floor of tho House next winter! I think I can give you the names of the ten mea who will practically man age affairs on their respective side. The big House of Representatives is much like an average political convention in that a very small mmber of men actually run the whole thing. On the Democratic side we find seven men who will between them divide respond billty. These men nre Roger Q. Mills of Texas, Charles F. Crisp of Georgia, W’illiam M Springer of Illi nois, Benton Mc Millin of Tennes see, William L. Wilson of Vest Virginia aud the two Brerkin ridges—W. I\ C. Breckinridge of Kentucky and Clifton R.

It was so In the Ilancall Congresses, in the Keifer Congress, in he Carlisle Congress, in the ^ Reed Congress. The control exer cised by a coterie of this sort comes more from genu ine leadership than from official power. Great as is the power of the Speaker—sec ond only in im portance to t\at of the Presid«nt fc'of the Untied I States himself— S' he must lead m»re because ho is a •'"//// ji \ ' ' i* leader, beeausehe r. i? raw has followers on c. p. oi sp. the floor) lh4n be. cause he is ch* rrnan.

On Monday night tho trusty Warden of Wheeling Commandery No. 1 blew his loud-sounding horn for the assem bling of gallant knights and noble war riors to prepare themselves for warfare, as nows had been spread about our en trenchments that an enemy was about to surprise and attack its battlements. The war alarm brought forth a fine bat talion of warriors, not only from Com pany No. 1, but also from No. 7, for all were alike Interested and attended the battle cry and came to their strong hold fully equipped with a good trusty sword unsheathed ready to meet the intruders who dared to invade the Knights' solemn retreat. The Red Cross Knirhts fought the first battle with the enemy and they came out more than conquerors, and It proved for them a complete victory. They captured every one, yea two. of the enemy, who, after being in durance vile for a time, were, by the kind favors of the noble Captain of the Guard, given the privilege of attending the sub stantial for the Inner man, thereby ex emplifying the true character of the “Red Cross Knight.” If thine enemy hunger, feed him. During the fray Junior Sir A. Ran proved a Genera), and did the work consigned him splen didly, and when he becomes more ac customed to warfare he will be a most proficient worker. Two well-qualified Kr.ights of the Red Cross were found to be worthy and cre ated Templars, and the lesson they re ceived as Pilgrim Warriors during the ceremonies made such Impressions on their minds which lime cannot efface, and which could not bo otherwise when the orders are conferred by Eminent Commander Zorn and his efficient offi cers. , KNIGHTS OF HONOR. Alpha held forth on Thursday even ing, and there was a large gathering of Knights at this occasion, than for many months past. It was a Joyous meeting and which can be attested by Brother Botsford and others who were present. One of the brethren danced a little Jig for Joy, he was certainly happ7, and why should he not be so when he was to assist in putting another victim through the mill, and to make him a Knight, whose family would be entitled to $2,000 if called away by death? That Brother, who is the dancer, is a good SamaJatan from away back. That tired feeling is entirely over come by Hood's Sarsaparilla, which creates an appetite, rouses the liver, cures headache, aud gives renewed strength and vigor to the whole body. Be sure to get Hood’s Sarsaparilla, which is peculiar to itself. Sold by ail druggist* ^ AMONG THE MILLS. HAPPING? M Or THI Will G? GIDU3TRIAL IIILDS. Condition of the General Glass Trade—Minor Notes Gleaned in the 8nsj Workshops in Wheeling ind Yiciruty. / ^ The local industrial situation may be said to be unchanged since last week. Everything is moving along satisfac torily in the various lines, and the gen eral prospect for the fall trade i9 very fair. The hot weather has Interfered somewhat with workmen in the various factories, causing a smaller output of tonnage in consequence. V Speaking of the general glass situa tion, the Budget this week says: “The glass situation is rather more hopeful than last week, although In quiries and movements of window glass is rather slow. Plate glass, like win dow glass has been dull, but with build ing operations, retarded by early spring strikes the outlook is that both plate and window glass will, inside of thirty days be in active demand. There will cot be window glass enough on the mar ket sufficient to cut any figure before November 1st. Several manufacturers will resume this week, but assortments of stocks are so badly broken that it wiU take thirty days to have sufficient accumulated to fill the demand for pop ular size3 needed. Stocks of window glass are not near so great as at this period last year.” * * w LOCAL IXDTTSTRIAL NOTES. The Lantern Globe Works Is working steady and the boys are all making full time. The La Belle Is still rushed, and working a full force In all Its depart ments. - The Rodefer Bros, glass factory In Bellaire will start up as son as matters can bo put in shape. The Acme factory in Steubenville Is running full, but the bottle works has but one furnace on. The Circus glass works, In Bellaire, has lost several day- recently on account of a shortage of natural gas. At tho iUtna and Standard mills everything Is moving along smoothly, with a full force of workmen. The Wheeling Lime and Cement Com pany are pushing tho Improvements to their plant out Caldwell’s Run, and they will soon be finished. Bloch Bro9.’ tobacco factory resumed work yesterday morning, after being idle several days, on account of the death of Mrs. Delen Bloch. Yesterday was pay day at the La Belle Iron Works, Riverside Iron Works, La Belle and Wheeling potteries, and United States glass factories. The contract for painting the North Wheeling Pottery has been awarded to M. Tannebaura & Co, This firm is also painting the B. & 0. repair shops. Slight repairs have been made at tho sheet rolls at tho Belmont during the past few days. The nail factory and blast furnace are both running full. Large new signs withe the inscrip tion “United States Glass Company, Factory U,” have been painted upon different portion* of the Ilobbs factory. Tho Tyler Tube Works, of Washing ton, Pa., aro running night and day. They have their own rolling mill and manufacture only charcoal Iron tubes. Win.

Tho company has recently added several novelties to its line of manufacture. The Riverside plant is on as usual in all its various departments. The plant, however, may close down at any time, unless there i9 an improvement In tho market condition. The Bnrnesville Glass Company, of Barnesville, Ohio, has fire now lighted in both Its furnaces, eight and ten pot# respectfully, and will begin blowing as soon as heated up. Th« hot iron machine? or tne L,augn lin mill were obliged to quit work Fri day on account of a scarcity of Iron. They will probably bo off until new stacks are put up. The Ilellaire steel plant is on. The blast furnace is yet idle, while the nail mill is not likely to resume soou, unless there should bo some change in the market likely to make Its operation profitable. Tho heavy top and bottom heads for the blowing cylinder at the Belmont blast furnace arrived yesterday, and will be placed In position this week. The spider head is expected to arrive about Tuesday. The machine shop of A. J. Sweeney A Son’s plant is running foil. The foundry has been idle since Tuesday morning, on account of rellning the cupolas. Some heavy shipments of plate glass machinery are being made to Pennsylvania concerns. It Is understood that a somber of men employed in the Bell Stove Works at tended the sale of lots at Moundsvllle, for the purpose of purchasing property upon which to build when the company removed its plant to that city, but they were scared by the price and did not invest. The second furnace at the Hobb's factory will go on to-morrow, giving employment to a large number of men. Considerable difficulty is anticipated In securing boys to “carryover” and “car ry in,” as they are nearly all employed at more lucrative work. The *£tna bgr mill which ha? been on single turn since resuming work, start ed doable turn during the past week, which will continue until the mill is re moved to the new addition. The break down mill which has been on night turn since starting up, will go on day turn some day this week. It is announced that there is a pros pect that the Wellsburg Glass Company, manufacturers of table ware and lamps, will join the tableware combination in a few days.
