Perhaps Council has not thought of this very dark side of the water ques tion. “Baby” Anson, tho bright and _ jsblnlng light of the Chicago base ball club, Is pleading the baby act In vigor ous style. Ho accuses the clubs that have played with Boston recently, of “laying down” before the Hubbites, to give them the pennant which now be. longs to them, but was, until recently, within the grasp of Chicago. If there Is any truth in Anson’s charges,and the said clubs “laid down” before Boston instead of being knocked down, It was a dirty mean trick to play, indeed, but the ques tion naturally suggests Itself, why did Anson, himself, help Boston to the pennant by losing so many gamss? The Chlcagos certainly did not “lay down” before any club, but were knocked down out of hand, which was also a rather mean thing for Chicago’s opponents to do. So Anson has been ill-treated all aronnd. It may be remembered that tho chargo he brings against Boston now was made against Chicago, itself, earlier in the season. So honors are easy. __ THE DECADENCE OF BASE BALL. The base ball associations reached the end of a not very prosperous season yesterday. The interest has been lan guid and the attendance at the games nothing like it was during previous , seasons. It seems to be a fact that the great national game is in its decline, and comparatively few people now take an interest in it. The chief cause of this decadence seems to be the lack of individuality in the clubs bearing the names of the cities supporting them. It is simply a show of professionals, and the club that plays with New York this year may play with Chicago or Boston next. It is entirely different from “old-time** base- ball, when it was in reality a con. test between the men of differ, eut cities, and naturally of intense Interest. There is little difference now between a base ball game and a circus, and the people are getting tired of a show that has nothing more than athletic skill to keep the interest in it alive. The New York JrorkI, also, ex presses “a shrewd suspicion that there Is much hippodromine about It,” adding that “interest in athletic sports sur vives and grows in direct proportion as the contests are honest and sincere, and that element is apparently sadly lack, ing in the modern game of base ball. Hence most healthy persons prefer to go to se^ the amateurs scuffle over the football game." That the professional athlete is going to the rear is further exemplifled In the intense interest manifested by the peo ple In the recent International cricket match in Philadelphia. Although the grounds were a considerable distance from the city tens of thousands flocked to the grounds during the three days the contest lasted. These were not pro fessional athletes, but were the crick eters of Philadelphia against those of Eogland. , We grieve to see this decadence of base ball, bat it may malt In patting the national game upon a sorer footing by preserving the local individuality of r ah* club*. ▲ NKW BANKING Hon. M. D. Harter in the current number of the Forum presents a plan for a permanent banking system, which is to have a supplementary State sys tem. Mr. Harter makos the present national banking system the basis of the one he proposes, but ho would so change and modify it as to make it per manent while at the same time enlarg ing Its functions and increasing its use fulness. In the first place, to give an outline of Mr. Harter’s plan, the list of bonds acceptable as security for circulating notes are to be enlarged so as to include state, county, city and railroad bonds. Street railroad bouds are excluded be cause their franchises are usually of short duration. According to Mr. Har ter, bonds secured by mortgage on farms and other real estate have always ! proved inferior and usually unsafe j security for banks. Hence, under his ' proposed system, real estate, the basis ■ of all wea'th. Is to be outlawed. I All bond9 thus rendered available , must be registered, and the principal | and interest must be payable in gold of | the present standard of weight and fine ness. Hence the new system has mon ometallism as its basis. All such bonds must have been listed for at loast five years prior to their deposit for security ascirculation, upon at leastone stcckex change located in some city of the United States having a population of 500,000 or more. This rule would ex clude all bonds (so Mr. Harter says) except those having a well-established character as well as recognized high value. No bond which has ever been in de fault for non-payment of interest, or which has sold on any stock exchange below par for withiu fivo years, or which has sold on any stock exchange at less than a premium of 5 per cent, above par within three years of propos ed deposit as security for circulation, is to be accepted under this law. The re sult of this, Mr. Harter thinks, would be the bonds deposited as security for circulation would have an average gold market value of at least 110, which would make them to-day a Very much better security for bank note circulation than United States bonds were from 1862 to 1865. No State bond representing a per capita debt of over two dollars for each of Its citizens, uo county bond repre senting a per capita debt of over four dollars, and no city bond representing a per capita debt of over eight dollars, is to be accepted as security for bank notes. All railroad bonds deposited are to be secured by mortgage, and none are to be of the form known as trust or debenture bonds. No bank is to have more than 20 per cent, of its bonds on deposit of the Issue of any one State, county, city, or railroad. Whenever any bond on deposit under this law sells at an average price of less than 105 for a period of thirty days, the comptroller of the currency is to require it to be replaced by a bond fully meeting the qulrements of the proposed law. There are other provisions in the nature of safeguards, which we need not notice here. Among other things, Mr. Harter’s proposed law provides— and this is the important point—that the present United States tax on the circulating notes of State banks shall cease, provided such notes are secured in precisely the same manner as na tional bank notes, by bonds deposited with the Auditor and Treasurer of the State, and it further provides that the State in which the bank is located shall guarantee the payment of its circulat ing notes. This Is a sort of extra na tion twist for which no good reason exists, since if the notes are guarded as those of the national banks would be, do further precautiou would seem to be necessary. Tho amount or tne notes issuea oy any State bank under this proposed law is to be under the contract of tho State in which it is located, and nothing in the law shall restrict the circulating notes of any State bank to 90 per cent, of the capital paid In; but no bank shall issue notes in excess of 90 per cent, of the par value of the bonds deposited by it to secure the payments of the notes. Mr. Harter says this provision will be re cognized as souud by most competent bankers, and he thinks that experience will lead to its extension ultimately to national banks. It gives the banks the power to promptly increase the money circulation when urgently needed, such extra supply being retired under the in fluence of the 2 per cent, tax on circu lation, thus giving flexibility to the cur rency. This is an outline of Mr. Harter’s proposed scheme. While wo are not prepared to endorse it. It is, neverthe less, well worthy of careful considera tion as one solution of a question that must soon be settled in some way. --- As interesting a piece of news as any that flashed over the wires yester day was that contained in the bulletin which said, “A daughter was born this morning to Mr. and Mrs. Grover Cleveland.” Little Miss Cleveland weighs eight pounds, and the proud father is evidently of the firm opinion that she is a “corker," whose like was never seen. Minnesota's Supreme Conrt has given tho grain speculators a very black l eye and created a flurry on 'change by its decision that dealings in grain fu tures are illegal and void.

O' S ■'V THE POPE GRIEVED Aboat the Action* of French Pilgrims In Rome« Rome, October 3.—The Pope is deeply afflicted at the disorders which occurred yesterday in this city through the objec tioaaole conduct of some French pilgrims who were visiting the tomb of King Victor Emanuel, in the Panthoou. The Pope has issued instructions that all Catholic pil grims now in Home are to remain tranquil in face of the displeasure displayed by the bands of young men and others who pa raded the streets to mark their disaporoba tion with the pilgrims’ conduct, and that the iatter are in every way to do all in their power to avoid giving cause for disturb ances. The French pilgrims who were the immediate cause of so much disorder yes terday started during the day for M od on a. Before doing so they called at the Vatican and expressed their regrets for the occurr ences of yesterday. The Pope, in reply, said he also regretted yesterday’s incidents, aad hoped they would not happen again. The majority of the accounts furnished of the cause of yesterday’s riotous out break agree on the assertion that one of the pilgrims who visitod Victor Emanuel’s tomb spat in the book where all visitors are expected to inscribe their names. In addition to this the pilgrim wrote: “Vive le Papo. Mort au roi Humbert. A has Victor Emanuel.” * An Italian gentleman who was present in the pantheon at the same time as the pilgrims, happened to notice what one of their number had inscribed in the visitors’ book, and, enraged at the insult to the dead, he struck the writer in the face and assisted the guards to expel him. amid tho anathemas of those present. The other pilgrims tried to rescue their companion from the guards, and in so doing caused the whole populace disturbance. The crowds attracted to tho spot by the disor der, upon hearing of its cause, attacked the pilgrims with knives and stones, tilling tho air with imprecations of “death to tho pilgrims, etc.” Tho guards had the utmost difficulty in protecting tho pilgrims from tho Italians, who wore frenzied with a desire for ven geance. In spite of tne appeals of the po lice officers and their efforts to allay the anger of the populace, the pilgrims were chased all over the cltv. M. Harmel, the leader of tho French workmen's pilgrimage, called at the Minis try uf Interior to day and disclaimed any sympathy with the outrage of yesterday. On the other hapd M. Harmel expressed deep regret for all the oecurrencesin con nection with it. CATHEDRAL MISSION. Services For To-Day and Every Day Tills Week. The first week of the Mission conducted by the Jesuit Fathers, at St. Joseph's Ca thedral, closed last night. The evening services during the past week have been exclusively for ladies, and the attendance tested the capacity of the church. This week the evening services will bo exclu sively for men. This division was found necessary on account of tho size of the con ! gregation, it having been found impossible on several previous occasions to admit all the people who desired to attend the ser vices. The excellent instructions and ad vice given by tho Fathers during the week, has been productive of much good. Hundreds received the Sacraments at the five and eight o’clock masses. Masses thi3 morning will be at the usual hour. The sermons will be delivered by the Jesuit Fathers. This evening the special services for men will commence, and con tinue every evening during the week. The morning services will be at,the same hours as during the past week, and will bo for all. CHANGES HANDS AGAIN. Mr. D. M. Car*y Leases the Hotel Windsor. The Hotel Windsor has again changed hands. This time the lessee is Mr. D. M. Carey, of the firm of Paige, Carey & Co. The Windsor was leased but a few weeks ago to Messrs. Todd and Miller, ex perienced hotel men of Chicago, they pay ing #12,000 for the furniture, and #4,200 per year for rent, and secured an option to pur chase tho building at any time during the coming year. It is understood that the formal agreement was never signed, on account of the illness of Mr. Hobbs, although its terms were thoroughly understood. On Thursday the lease was made to Mr. Carey, and it is un derstood that Mr. E. B. Carney, formerly manager of the hotel, and now manager of tho Fort Henry Club, will assume tho management. While Messrs. Todd and Windsor have had charge of the Windsor, its patronage has grown steadily, and it is expected that under the management of Mr. Carney it will be made a complete success. -♦ NEW 1’OniCKI FIRM Preparations to Commence Work at TU tonvllle November 1.

The guests who attend array themselves in their mo*t excruciating attire1, ana apart from the pleasure of tho participants, it cannot but afford a visual feast to the manv delighted on-lookers. Inasmuch as the Charity Ball as proposed is for toe benetit of such a worthy institution as the new City Hospital, a still warmer interest will be awakened in the social affair. A preliminary meeting was held in tho Me Lure House parlors on Thursday evening, in which arrangements were in a measure formulated. Mr. B. Walker Peterson was elec red chairman of the meeting and Air. H. C. Frauzheim secretary. Messrs. Hul lihen Quarrier, T. C. Moffatt, ana Dr. Aschmun were appointed a committee to secure a favorable location, while Mr Frauzheim was appointed a committee of one to arrange for tho music. The full Opera House Orchestra will likely oe en gaged. The affair will probably take place at the McLure House, although some are in favor of giving such a picturesque affair in apartments where the scene can oe view ed advantageously by spectators, and there will likely be a large number. While tne McLure dining room aud other apartments are admirably adapted in all other wavs for the purpose, there is no balcony. Still, as this particular combination is difficult to obtain in this city, it will likelv not be persisted in The tickets will t>e Jixed at live dollars couple, with three dollars lor single gentlemen. The affair is booked for Thursday evening, the 29th oi this month. It will be a brilliant affair. In the matter of costumes the Charity Ball will likely outdo the splendor of all former events. The dress materials tins season are especially handsome, in textuie as well as in the variety and richness o. the colors, ranging from the heavy corded silks in every conceivable shade, and the stiff brocades in tbe richest of Persian col ors. to tho lighter failles and airy crepes and grenadines. At tho meeting on Turs day evening there was also a good attendance of prominent ladies, who are taking an active part in the arrangements. The various committees will be carefully constituted, and will probably embrac e prominent society people in Steubenville, Martins Ferry, Bridgeport, Bellairo, 1 ark ersburg, Moundsville and other places as well as Wheeling. There will be another meeting on Tuesday evening to make further arrangements. A big attendance at this meeting is expected. * * A private hop will bo given at Teuton.a Hali Tuesday evening, for which Killmey er will play. *x* The progressive euchre parth given by Miss Carrie Brues on Friday evening ut the home of her mother, Mrs Caroline Brues on Friday evening was one of con siderable deminsions, and as handsomely conducted as any such events that have graced former seasons.

N early all the guests were in full evening attire, guests and the effect was enchanting. T he affair was given in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Mel ville Griffith, of Baltimore, and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas of this city. There were about twenty tables in operation, and at times the contests became very spiriteu and merrily exciting. At tho couolusion of tho card conflict choice Refreshments were served, and then cume tho linal ad judgment of tho contestants. The first prize for ladies fell to Miss Gene Friend, and consisted of a handsome cut glass dish. Miss Hannah Whaliey captured tho socond prize, a gold filagree bon-bon snoou. Mr. Ambrose List piled up an umazing lot of points and received tho first gentleman’s prize, consisting of an elegant traveling flask.

Dancing was indulged in and con tinued throughout the evening, with the pleasing interruptions of vocal and instru mental music, and was but one of tho many happr means provided for making the hours appear too short. At midnight an ample repast was served, after which the amusements were resumed un til an early hour, when the guests departed with tho most pleasant recollections of an evening of enjoyment. # * * Mr. John Bole, of the South Side, was tendered a surprise party by a number of his ftienus Friday evening.

STONE & THOMAS. 8parkin? in the Mountain*. N. T. World. The mountaineer and his wife had to go down the valley about a mile to see a sick neighbor, and I was left at the cahiu with their daughter, a girl of eighteen. As soon as she had cleared off the sup- [ per table, and while I sat on the door step smoking, she put on a clean apron, arranged her hair a bit, and blushed very red as she said to me: ‘•Him’s coming to see me to-nlgnt, and hlra’s very skoery and—and-” "Do you mean that your young man is coming?” I asked. "Reckon him Is ” "And he’s bashful?” "Him can’t skeercely abide dad and m “T'see. He’d bo scared off If be found me here. Well, I’ll take a walk and get out of the way.” "No! no! Vou’s perfectly proper. I’ll go out and sit down on tne log, and you’s stay here.” "Ob, that’s it? Well, don’t you mind mo in the least. Just tell the young man I’ve been there myself and know how one feels about it.” The log was only thirty feet away, and she hadn’t been sitting there over five minutes when "him” appeared. He had probably been hiding somewhere near. All I could see was that he was a young man and very bashful and awk ward. Ho sat down about ten feet away from her, and it was five minutes before either spoke. Then he remarked. "Powerful sight of rain long ba^k, Linda?” ‘•» ny, Jltn, it naiu t suuwcreu iu iwu weeks!” she laughed. "Haiu’t It?” “Why, no! You’s dun got mixed np with last year.” "Reckon so,” he replied, and somehow i the distance between them suddenly di-j minished one-half. It was bright moon light, but owing to a haze In the atmos phere I couldn’t exactly tell whether she moved, be hitched or the log sud denly shrunk five feet endways. "Who’s him?” querrled Jim, as he I nodded his head in my direction. "Stranger, gwlne further up,” she an-1 swered. "Yo’ hain’t no call to be j skeered of him nor nobody.” "Who’s skeered?” "Reckon you is.” "Shoo! Never was skeered In all ray life. Linda, does yo’r old dad like me?” "Reckon he do.” "And yo’r mam?” ••Reckons she do.” "And, Linda” He stopped there for a long, long time, and Linda coughed and giggled over his embarrassment. By and by she said: "Dad says yon’s come powerful nigh killin’ a b'ar last week.” No r*ply. "Mam says you’s took np them ten acr*s of land above Parker’s.” No reply. "Dad says you’s gwlne to build a cabin up tbar—te! he! he.” No reply. “Has you’s lostyo^r tongue, Jim?” she asked, after a long silence. “Co’se not; I was thinkln’,” he replied, as he heaved a deep stgh. "Reckon I know what ’twas—te! he' he!” "Reckon you don’t!” “Co’se Idol Dad likes yo’, Mam likes yo’, aad I” That log suddenly contracted . again and brought them close together, aad Jim’s arm stole around Linda's waist as ha finished the sentence for her with: “And we’s gwlne ter be jlnad la the fall and live on them ten acres? Linda, if him wasn’t back thero in thedoah I’d shoroly hug vo\ I would!” I got out of “that doah” and took a long walk, and If Jim didn't takp ad vantage of the occasion Linda’s looks belled her when I returned.
