Anson, himself, help Boston to the

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,

▲ 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
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
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
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
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

must soon be settled in some way.

THE POPE GRIEVED
Aboat the Action* of French Pilgrims In
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
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.
Services For To-Day and Every Day Tills
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
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

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
While Messrs. Todd and Windsor have

Socially. Wheeling will be right In line
shortly with metropolican centres 1 no
citv is about to enjoy what is distinea to be
asocial triumph, the Charity Ball, in
New York, Cnicasro, Boston and other
large cities the<e affairs are looked upon as
ffteeveutsof the joyous uiberaal season.
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.
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. A large number oi
invitations were sent out, and the respose
was hearty. Tee spacious, colonial home
stead was aglow with light, and the apart
ments within were prettily decorated for
the occ. sion. 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. Mr. Charles Frunzheim was on deck
for the second prize, it being a beautiful
silver tray shaped in the form of a heart.
The hostess, Miss Brues, as well as the
other members of tho family, were every
where attentive to the wants of all. aad the
affair throughout was one that will long be
recalled among the notable occasions of the

fifth anniversary of bis birth at his father's

On Thursday evening last Miss Kate
Hanes, assisted by her sister, Miss Mable,
tendered a receptiou to a select circle of
friends at her residence on North Main
street. The affair was charmingly arrang
ed and conducted with the
sole view of the comfort and
pleasure of the fortunate guests, every
thing being complete, even in the smuliest
detail. 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. Dancing and
cards occupied the evening, and at mid
night supper was served, to which all did
ample justice. .

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,
‘•» ny, Jltn, it naiu t suuwcreu iu iwu
weeks!” she laughed.
“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.”
"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.”
He stopped there for a long, long
time, and Linda coughed and giggled
over his embarrassment. By and by she
"Dad says yon’s come powerful nigh
killin’ a b'ar last week.”
"Mam says you’s took np them ten
acr*s of land above Parker’s.”
"Dad says you’s gwlne to build a
cabin up tbar—te! he! he.”
“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'
"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.
