About Those Islands.
Madrid, Sept. C—The council of min
isters, with the sanction of King Alfonso,
has framed and dispatched to the German
government an ultimatum requesting Ger
many to evacuate theCaroline islands;Spain,
in the meantime, to refrain from immediate
occupancy of the islands and thus afford a
basis for further parleying.
The total number of arrests made here in
connection with demonstrations against
Germany is 184. The German consulate at
Valencia received the same treatment at
the hands of the populace as the German
embassy at Madrid.
Ekhlin, Sept. 0. —The Nord Deutsche
Zeitung, Prince Bismarck's organ, says
that the government is annoyed over the
anti-German demonstration at Madrid, but
will not judge hastily. It adds that inquir
ies will will probably show that the riots
were due to certain influences. This is a
hardly veiled dig at the French. The
Zeitung also says that if Spain does not
recompense Germany and punish the cul
prits Germany, will occupy the Caroline
islands forthwith.
The National Zeitung thinks diplomatic
relations between Germany and Spam will
be broken off unless Spain affords satisfac- \
tion for the Madrid affair. The Tagblatt
says that if King Alfonso retains his sov
ereignty Spain will certainly make repara
tion, and. in the event of his being de
posed, Germany can easily take possession
of valuable pledges and thus compel Spain
to render satisfaction. The Tagblatt is of
the opinion that the excesses of the popu
lace of Madrid were directed more against
the Spanish monarchy than against Ger
many. The Bersen Courier declares tha*
the resignation of the Spanish cabinet is ab
solutely necessary to atone tor the insults

New Yoke, Sept. 6.—The Times' Lon
don cable letter to-night says: For a fort
night the papers have been printing con
gratulatory things on the settlement of the
Zulnkar pass difficulty and all England has
lien ostensibly felicitating herself on the
Implied assurance of peace; but there has
been an underlying uneasiness all the time
which the fact that the Woolich arsenal
has been working day and night
has not tended to deminish. To-day the
detailed story in the chronicle of Russian
aggression and an Afghan route on Afghan
territory have revived all the old tears.
The source is not specially reliable, but the
dispatch seems to have come from Allaha

circumstantial to be merely a bazaar rumor.
The action of the governor of
Herat in releasing Russian prisoners fits
in suspiciously well with his recent anti-

pratically powerless. M. Ferries' paper,
The Paris, however, which is the same one
that profited so handsomely on the bourse
by the ministers' tip on the Chinese peace,
grasps its chance to make capital by cheer

of Germans from France as an
answer to the expulsion of Mr. Rotham
from Alsace. This has pleased the Paris
fancy immensely, and may lead to Mr.
Ferry's return to power. The feeling on
tire Alsace matter is very deep, and a deep
plan has been adopted for the return of
two Alsatian residents of Paris to the cham
ber of deputies from Paris districts, who
shall be tacitly treated in the chamber as
representatives of- the last province. In
the same breath it is learned from Berlin
that Prince Hohenlohe, the new governor,
is to go to Strasburg to change Count Man
teufule and benevolent rule, and enforce
the hardest kind of repressive measures. It

In thus carrying out the prince
consort's policy the queen is likely
to hear the plainest talk of the whole reign.
The papers are ridiculing Prince Henry of
Battenberg, who, by the queen's command,
dressed in tartan and kilt at the Balmoral
festivities and then had to leave the ground
prematurely because his knees were
cold. Lord Brave nearly a week
ago had a letter in the Times
calling upon the people of the

burned itself out in most districts of Spain,
but it is increasing at Cadiz and Barcelona.
In France the distinguishing feature is the
mortality among the upper classes, so that
the disease " will have to be
called this year the cholera of
the rich. There were 1,288 new
cases of cholera and 797 deaths from the
disease reported yesterday throughout
Spain. Twelve deaths occurred in Toulon
last night. The live cases reported at
Novaras, Italy yesterday were among
the troops engaged in mauitevers at that
place. Ten more suspicious cases of sick
ness have occurred at Panua, Novara and
Genoa. Cardiff has had a scare in the ar
rival of the steamer Crindon from Barcelona
yesterday. Since then one man on her
lias died from a disease which the doctors,
after making an examination, have decided
to be Asiatic cholera. The man had
drank water from a cask which had been
tilled at Barcelona, and his death occurred
quickly after he had partaken of it.
Among the remainder of the crew, who
had all passed under the doctors' inspec

The steamer has been placed in quarantine

The Miners and Chinamen at Kock
Springs, Wj j., Not Troublesome.
Omaha, Neb., Sept. G. —General Mana
ger Calloway of the Union Pacific Railway
company was asked to make a statement of
the situation at Rock Springs, Evanston
and other mining camps on the line of that
road, regarding the existing trouble be
tween the Chinamen and the miners. Mr.
Calloway said that notice had been served
on Beckwith and Quinn, coal mine con
tractors at Rock Springs and Evanston, to
remove all Chinamen from Evanston on to
day, otherwise serious trouble would ensue.
The United States government has sent
troops there and he assumed that order
would soon be restored. "In consequence of
the difficulty experienced," continued Mr.
Calloway, "in getting reliable American
miners in the territories, a contract was
made some ten years ago under which a
certain proportion of Chinamen were en
gaged. Both classes," lie asserted, "are
now paid fully CO per cent, higher wages
than are paid in Eastern mines. At Rock
Springs, where the massacre occurred, the
coal companies' returns show that during
the past month there were employed about
500 miners and 300 at Carbon. All those
at Carbon were Americans, while at the
other two places they are dividedtwo
thirds Chinese and one-third American.
is from 75 cents to SI per ton mined, ac
cording to the width of the vein and diffi
culties encountered in getting out the coal.
Both classes are-paid at the same rate and
have been averaging about S3 per day for
eight hours' work. The Americans, being
more industrious and skillful, get out a
larger number of tons than the Chinamen,
and many of them earn over S100 a month.
This scale has been in force many years and
was supposed to be satisfactory to the men.
The only advantage claimed by the coal
company in the employment of Chinese was
that it enabled them to mine a sufficient
quantity of coal to keep the trains moving
when the other miners were off on strikes.
Last winter all the men at Carbon went out
by orders of the Southern Colorado Miners'
union, while they admitted having no griev
ances of their own. The Mormons and
Chinese will not join these unions and
therefore come under their bane. The
Mormon miners are now moving their fam
ilies away, fearing a repetition of last
week's trouble." Mr. Calloway was asked
to define the policy of his company. He
replied that inoffensive employes of the coal
department and some of its officers have
been driven from their homes, had their
property destroyed and many of them foully
murdered. "They are now awaiting protec
tion from the territorial or federal authori
ties, and when they can be assured of this
we will resume operations."
Rock Springs, Wyo., Sept. 6.Ten
miners were arrested to-day by the sheriff
on a charge of murder and arson in con
nection with the recent anti-Chinese out
break. Five other arrests were made yester
day. There was no attempt to avoid arrest,
and the men have no fear of the result if
brought to trial. Additional arrests are ex
pected to-morrow. A committee of five,
appointed by the miners and business men
of Rock Springs, are to leave in the morn
ing for Omaha to visit the Union Pacific
officials and present a large amount of
sworn testimony, asserting decided prefer
ence has been shown the Chinese miners
and that white miners who complained
thereof were made to suffer in various ways

Washington, Sept. G. —The Citizens
and Liquor Dealers' association of this city
have sent a communication to the district
commissioners asking for an investigation
of "the police spy system." Acts of gross
immorality are charged against the spies.
It is alleged that certain officers have, dur

a negro shanty where liquor has been
bought, and the grossest immorali
ties committed; that children have
been bribed by officers to inveigle
liquor dealers into selling to minors for the

have been summoned before the police,

evidence of policemen, compelled to pay

New York, Sept. G. —The contributions
to the Grant monument fund has dropped
this week to an average of about §200 a
day. The utter hopelessness of the project
of raising a million dollars by popular sub
scription is acknowledged even by a few
members of the committee who have at any
time been sanguine. The mails
bring a big bundle of letters to
the headquarters, but they contain
nothing except words. Less than a thousand
dollars altogether has come by post, without
direct personal solicitation. But outpour
ing of advice and suggestions is tremend
ously liberal. A full third of the letters
are from men who propose to manufacture
some form of souvenier to be marketed
under the auspices of the committee, the
proceeds to be divided between the fund
and the pocket of the maker. Another
third are from showmen who desire to float
enterprises by a connection with the com
mittee, involving the payment to this fund
of a percentage of the receipts. No atten
tion is paid to either of these classes of cor
respondence. A great number of honest
are received, such as that every person in
the United States would give 10 cents to
have his name enrolled for deposit in tho
monument; that on an appointed day every
body be requested to go without one meal
and contribute a sum equal to the amount
saved; that fashionable women be urged to
give the proceeds of special economy in
their next winter's wardrobes and that

the Cheyenne and Arapahoe Cattle com

4,300 head, and expect to drive, in a few
days 3,000 more, and to drive the balance,
or 0,500 head, in herds of 2,000, as far as
they can be gathered. The company

head, and has 10,700 head left, awaiting
negotiations for ranching for water,
and when the negotiations are com
pleted the work of removing the re
mainder of the cattle will be
pushed rapidly. The force is increased
slightly and measures seem to have been
taken to comply with the president's proc

A Reformer's Expense Account.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, Sept. G. —It is said on
what seems to be pretty good authority that
the civil service commission is likely to be
reorganized in the interest of reform. If
the half that is said is true it certainly
needs it. An expense account of Commis
sioner Gregory lias just been made public,
which shows that this reformer, when he
travels, charges the government for the
newspapers lie reads and the tips
which the sleeping-car porters and the
waiters at $5 a day hotels are given. It
would seem to be straining a point for a re
former to make such charges as these under
the clause of the law that provides for the
payment of the "necessary traveling ex
penses." It appears that Auditor Cheno
with did object to Dr. Gregory's newspaper
accounts, and once cut them out of his bill
of necessary expenses, but the learned doc
tor wrote the auditor a letter, in which he
said that the newspaper contained notices
of examination. •

Red Flags, Bed Feathers, Red Rib*
bons and Incendiary Speeches.
Chicago, Sept. G. —The red banners of
socialism flaunted in Market square here
to-day. Processions of men, women, boys
and girls were marching and countermarch
ing. Each woman had either a crimson
feather in her hat or wore a piece of red
ribbon pinned to the bosom of her dress.
The men had red bands about their hats,
and more of the same material fastened to
their coats. The children wore red stock
ings. The occasion of this display was the
socialistic picnic, organized In opposition to
the Trades assembly demonstration to-mor
row, because the latter organization, had
voted to taboo the red flags. • Speeches to
the assembling crowd were made by Messrs.
Fielden, Parsons and S-i>s. A - tirade
agaiust capital was indulged in by all the
speakers, each putting much stress upon
the assertion that poverty is closely allied
to social degradation. A red < flag was pre
sented to the Metal Workers soci
ety. Then the crowds cheered and
the band struck up a lively air.
Though chilled, the raw wind from off the
lake and through the bay threatening rain,
the socialists formed in line and set out to
walk to Ogden's grove, three miles away.
Between 3,000 and 4,000 were in line. The
previous advertisement of the affair had es
timated that 10,000 would be the number.
A noticeable feature was the absence of a
drum major or any leaders. Neverthe
less, the procession got through all right.
Along the line of march, however, but littie
excitement was manifested. In addition to
the usual f mottos were banners bearing de
nunciation legends against Mayor Harrison
and Gov. Oglesby for their respective parts
in the Chicago street car strike and the
Lamont quarry trouble. In the neighbor
hood of Division and Halsted streets, when
two-thirds of the route had been covered,
occurred the first expression of public en
thusiasm. Deafening cheers greeted the
banners denouncing Mayor Harrison. No
disorderly act was committed by those com
prising the procession and at the grounds
dancing and beer-drinking was continued
to a late hour.
Chcroiccc-Xcgro Troubles.
Special to the Globe.
Little Rock, Ark. Sept. G.—From an
Indian territory special it is learned that
there is a growing bitterness between the
Cherokees and negroes who claim citizen
ship in the nation. The freed men number
between 7,000 and S.000, and enjoy all the
rights and privileges of native born Indians.
The present troubles is caused by freedmen
claiming a share of the £300,000 recently
paid the Cherokee nation by the United
States government for land ceded to it by
the Cherokees. This claim is questioned
by the Indians, who assert that the freed
men, not being of Cherokee blood, are not,
therefore, entitled to any share of money.
The colored men base their claim on the
treaty of 1S00, which) they say accorded
them the rights of native-born Cherokees.
Some time ago Senator Dawes visited the
nation and investigated the matter
and announced that he would make
a report to congress next December,
recommending that the freedmen be paid
some $118,000, their prorata of the S300,
000. The question will be discussed in the
Cherokee legislature which meets in No
vember. It is probable, however, that
congress may decide it. The assertiou is
made that two-thirds of the Cherokees re
fused to sanction the sale of . land in ques
tion and an effort to annul the transaction
will be made. Trouble of a serious nature
is apprehended between the Cherokees and
the freedmen in the event of the validity of
the sale and their claim to 5118,000 of the
purchase money being sustained.

and the mainsail was hoisted and the top
sail set, also for practice. Sir Richard
Sutton, the owner of the Genesta, and Sir
William Levinge, his brother-in-law, had
not returned from Niagara up to 5 o'clock
this evening, but they were expected to ar
rive during the evening. So much has been
said about the seaworthiness of cutters as
compared with sloops that a well-founded
report current among yachtsmen is worth
mentioning. It is said that several of the
Genesta's crew have signified their inten
tion not to cross the Atlantic in the cutter.
In connection with crews of yachts, which
have been lying near by the Genesta, they
have said that on the way over the Genesta
had a much rougher experience than her
captain has admitted, and that at one time
during the voyage everything aboard of her
was afloat for eighteen hours from seas
which she shipped. Their experience was
so trying that they have determined to re
turn to England by steamer.
New York, Sept. 6.The Puritan was
towed at 4 o'clock this morning from the
dry dock on which she had been cleaned
and pot leaded to the American docks at
Tompkiusville, Staten Island, where shortly
after 10 o'clock Mr. John M. Wilson, the
New York Yachts club measurer took her
measurement. She was found to be 83 85-100
fast sailing length and 81 feet 10 inches on
the water line. This measurement
makes her allow the Genesta exactly
31 seconds over the courses she
will sail. Fifty sail of yachts, including
many of the Eastern and Boston Yacht
clubs, accompanied the Puritan and Genesta
from their anchorages. The wind was
light at the start but in the run out, when
a fresh breeze came from the westward, the
Puritan slipped past the Genesta and held
the advantage to the anchorage. The start
will be made to-morrow at half past ten.
Two hundred sail of yachts are lying at
the rendezvous and over three hundred ves
sels will accompany the contestants over
the course.
Reorganizing the .League.
Special to the Globe.
Philadelphia, Sept. 6.As is well
known, the cities of Providence and Buffalo
have never paid the league and there have
been several attempts to get rid of them.
This year, for the first time, a good oppor
tunity has been presented. It is said on
good authority that Providence has already
disposed of Manager Bancroft and Pitcher
Radbourne to the Athletic club of this city
and that Joe Start may also go to Washing
ton, the league franchise of Providence
also going to the capital. The league
cities will be Washington, Phila
delphia, New York and Boston. Cincinnati
and Pittsburg will be taken in place of
Detroit and Buffalo. It is known here
that Spalding of the Chicago club
and Henry Y. Lucas are bent on
having things so. Cincinnati will make a
good paying league team,' The old Union
grounds will be used. In order to satisfy
the American association for taking in
Pittsburg, the league will allow an Ameri
can association club in Chicago, the under
standing being that there will be no con
flicting dates. The backers of the Cincin
nati club arc said to be Edgar M. Johnson,
a law partner of Gov. Iloadly, J. II. Mc-
Lean of the Cincinnati Enquirer and George
Gerke and Justus Thome, the wealthy
brewers. It is understood that Mr. John
son and Mr. McLean conferred with Mr.
Spalding at Saratoga recently. The re
sult is said to bo satisfactory, and Mr
Spalding returned to Chicago Saturday
Al Reach of the Philadelphia club met the
Western gentlemen, and, it is understood,
has agreed to assist in Mr. Johnson's elec
tion to the presidency of the league.
Wheelmen at Springfield.
The greatest 'cycling events of the year
will be the annual meeting of the Spring
field, Mass., Bicycle club, which takes
place on the 8th, 9th -and 10th of this
month. Preparations for the affair having
been going on for months and all who at
tend may confidently count on not being
disappointed, as some of the fastest 'cyclists
of this country and England will contest
for the prizes. Professionals will have
eight races altogether, consisting of three
one-mile, two five-mile (one for. safeties).
two three-mile and one ten-mile, One of
the one-mile races is a sweepstake cham

races for the United States champinship,
one-mile tricycle, one, three and five-mile
tandem tricycle, one, three and five-mile
tandem tricycle, two one-half-mile, four
one-mile, four three-mile, two five-mile,

grand total of thirty races for the three
days. The value of the prizes is an
nounced at So, 000. Hampden park, where
the races take place is a beautiful spot on
the banks of the Connecticut river, and
close to the central portion of the city.
Within the race course is built a 'cycling
track. No huckstering, pool selling or
wheels of fortune are allowed on the
grounds, and the popularity of the Spring
field clubs annual meetings is shown by the
fact that at their first gathering (this being
the fourth) there were 10,000 people pres
ent, at the second230,000, and at the third
there were 50,000. The Springfield club is
the best known in New England and their
arrangements are always first class.
Billiard Tournament.
Special to the Globe.
Chicago, Sept. 6.—Lovers of billiards
throughout the country have for some time
past been much interested in efforts made
by the Chicago Billiard Keepees' associa
tion to induce Vignaux, the champion of
Europe, to participate in a tournament to
be held 1 in Chicago this fall with Slosson
and Shaefer, the two billiard giants of
America. The billiard association is able
to announce definitely that the proposed
tournament is a certainty, as Yignaux is
now under contract to play. His terms
were' received on Friday by cable from Mr.
Bensinger, who is now in Paris, and at a
special meeting of the association, held yes
terday, it was decided to accept them. W.
P. Mussey, chairman of tho executive com
mittee, accordingly cabled Mr. Bensinger as
follows: "Mr. M. Bensinger, Paris, France:
Your terms with Vignaux accepted. An
swer. W. P. Mussey." Mr. Bensinger
will undoubtedly close at once, and it is
probable that Vignaux will come with him
to this country. He will probably bo in
Chicago about Oct. 1, and will at once go
into practice at the fourteen-inch ball game,
to which he is yet a stranger. The great
tourney will take place about the first week
in November at the Central music hall.
Wants to Hear f ram Mel] en.
The following letter was received from
Mr. Barnes on Saturday and needs no ex
planation. Incidentally it may bo men
tioned that the "unknown" called Lennon
is said to be a Bostonian well-known in
Eastern sporting circles:
To tho Sporting Editor of the Globe.
I see by a late issue of your paper that Pat
sey Mollin was anxious to fight the winner of
the light between my unknown aud Ed
McKoewn of Winnipeg; Man. Now the fight
came off yesterdayinorning and my man won,
as no doubt you have hoard by this time.
Now if Patsey Mellin will forward to your
paper articles of agreement, accompanied by
a forfeit, I am prepared to arrange a match
for any reasonable amount, any number of
rounds, or to a finish, hard gloves, and at
once. My unknown's name is Joe Lennon.
He is just 20 years old and weighs 175 pounds.
Yesterday was his first fight in the ring. I
mean business and nothing else. I want to
hear from Mellin or his backers at once.
John S. Barnes.
Grand Forks, Dak., Sept. 3, 1835.
. P. S. My man and McKoewn fight here
again on Sept. 15, but that will not interfere
with the arranging of this match. J. S. B.
Indian Lacrosse flayers.
Special to the Globe.
Chicago, Sept. 6.—A sporting event,
which will be an interesting novelty in
Chicago, will occur next Saturday, when
the rival teams of Indians from Baylield,
Wis., play lacrosse at the base ball park.
Lacrosse is an exciting game, interesting to
both initiated and strange spectators, by
whoever played, but where Indians are the
contestants and the battle is waged with all
the vim and earnestness that the red man
puts into his sports, it is doubly so. The
contest, which has been arranged by Mr. T.
Z. Cowles, and for which the Indians are
now constantly practicing, will be a unique
one in this section of the country, and well
worth seeing.
John Li. on a Drunk.
Special to the Globe.
Boston, Sept. 6.—John L. Sullivan has
telegraphed Eyan that the fight set down
for the 15th inst. must be postponed, as he
hadn't time for the requisite training. Sulli
van's idea of training has not changed. It
embraces champagne as the principal article
of food, and, acting on that principle, John
has been boiling drunk ever since his return
from Cincinnati, Thursday night. Yester
day he was run away with by a spirited horse
and was considerably battered up. It was
after that that he sent the dispatch to Ryan.
Two Biff Races Arranged.
Cleveland, 0., Sept. Daniel J.
Campan of Detroit has just completed ar
rangements for a race between W. J. Gor
don's Clingstone and W. C. Frances' Harry
Wilkes, to be trotted at Detroit on Sept.
26. The race will be for a purse of §2,500,
two-thirds to go to the winner and one-third

of J. I. Case's stallion, Phallas, to-day ac
cepted Frances' challenge to match Harry
Wilkes against any horse in America. The
race will be for any amount and is to be
trotted in Cleveland. ——-_-..l^..^._:_,
Detroit Meeting.
Detroit, Sept. Entries for the fall
meeting of the Detroit Driving park close
to-morrow. Already a large number of
horses have been entered, and the meeting
promises to be one of the most successful
ever held in the "West. D. J. Campan of
the Detroit Driving club is now in the East,
where he has arranged for a matched race
between Clingstone and Harry Wilkes for a
purse of 82,500.
Had met Before.
To tho Sporting 1 Editor of the Globe.
Please let me know through the column
of your paper whether Jack Burke and
Charles Mitchell have met in any ring in
Chicago or any other place this season,
with or without gloves, and oblige
Ax Old Subsckieeb.
Faribault, Minn., Sept. 2, 18S5.
Burke and Mitchell met in Battery D
armory at Chicago on June 29, and the
match was declared a draw. uThis Jwas the
fourth time the two men had met, each
being a draw.
Arranging: for a Match.
Arrangements are being made for a
match between Hadley and Curtis of Eau
Claire. Like many who have once been all
but invincible, Iladley dislikes to acknowl
edge that his powers are waning, but it is a
fact well-known to his friends, and it will
be against the judgment of his intimates if
he consents to sign the articles of agree
ment. Hadley has been under pretty heavy
expense for medical treatment.
Base Ball.
The National league record for tho week
shows Chicago still in the lead, having won
lour straight games from Buffalo and one
from Detroit. One of the Buffalo series
was played in Milwauke (a postponed
game) and was a brilliant contest. Detroit
has forged ahead of St. Louis, throwing
the last-mentioned at the foot of the list,
the last of their games being a beautifully
played, three-to-nothing game of thirteen
innings. The Bostons took four straight
games from their old rivals, the Provs.
The St. Louis, Buffalos and Providence each
took a whitewash. The close of the week
shows the following:

There was nothing uncommonly brilliant
in the games of the American association
during the week. Cincinnati has pulled
steadily forward for second place, and the
season will doubtless close with St. Louis,
Cincinnati and Pittsburg, according to the
three first positions in the order named.
Pittsburg lost three straight games to Cin

St. Louis, Mo., Sept. 6.—The last
championship game of the season that the
Browns played on their home grounds was
witnessed by one of the largest crowds of
the year. It took ten innings to decide the
NO. 250
contest, neither snoring in the first nine.
The contest was quite exciting, though the
batting on both sides was too weak to
all'ord many opportunities for brilliant play
ing. Drisset, the Browns' new catcher,
played an excellent game, throwing to
bases beautifully. Hits by Caruthers and
Drisset, a steal, a passed ball and an error
of lieccius' gave the Browns their two
tallies in the tenth inning. A base on balls
given Browning, a couple of passed ball 3,
and a single by Maskrey yielded Louisville
a run. To-day's victory gives the Browns
the series with the Louisviiles. Following
is the score:
St. Louis 0 00000000 2—3
Louisville 0 00000000 I i
Paul nines, who has been connected
with the Providence club since 1878, has
been laid off. The alleged cause of his re
moval was playing poorly intentionally, in
order to get his release.
McKenuon is said to be the champion
poor base runner. In his la.st eleven games
he has made eighteen hits for twenty-two
bases and scored only two runs.
Whiteley, formerly of Stillwater, has led
the Newburyports (Mass.) in batting since
he joined the team, and has douu very
strong work in the field.
"Nick" Bradley, short stop of the Wilkes
barre, Pa., club, has just fallen heir to

to look after his estate.
In all the great slugging teams of New
York only two of the players have yet
made 100 hits—Connor and O'llourke.
The Clippers of Hamilton lead in the On
tario league race tor the championship,
with London a close second.
There is said to be a movement on foot to
place the pitcher iive feet further back, to
aid heavy batting.

Special to the Globe.
Boston, Sept. G.—For several days re
ports have been in circulation in this city
of a large defalcation in a leading dry goods
house. Inquiry shows that the defalcation,
if it may be so termed, was confined to one
of the departments of Jordan, Marsh & Co.,
the head of which department had violated
the confidence of the firm and by collusion
with sellers, had his bills held back until
the sum, total, amounted to between 5200,000
and 8250,000. These bills have been coming
in very rapidly within the last two or three
weeks, up to which time the firm supposed
that they had settled or accounted for nearly
all claims or debts connected with the de
partment in question. The real object of
the guilty party in entering into what
seemed to have been a conspiracy with
sellers is not definitely known. Mr.
Eben Jordan, the senior member of the
firm of Jordan, Marsh & Co., says that the
firm first became aware of wrong doings
that had been going on in one of their de
partments a number of weeks ago. The
matter had been thoroughly investigated
and the guilty parties were known. The
amount of the bills which had been pre
sented to the firm for payment was in the
neighborhood of $175,000. The firm will
refuse to pay this amount, acting under the
advice of their counsel, and if necessary
will carry it into the courts. Mr. Jordan
also stated that negotiations with the firms
and interested parties were being conducted
and a compromise was very probable. The
affair was one that was liable to happen to
any firm doing an extensive "business. Mr.
Jordan declined to state the name of the
department or parties interested and also
pleasantly but firmly refused to make any
statement whatever concerning the alleged
American Railways in Mexico.
Special to the Globe.
City of Mexico, Sept. 6.—The Ameri
can projectors of the famous Topolovampo
railroad will probably hear from the Mexi
can department of public works, andunlesg
good account of their stewardship can be
rendered they will suffer forfeiture of the
land and other advantages granted during
IS7S. It will be remembered that that en
terprise created much comment in the
American press, and congress was solicited
to furnish money for makidg surveys of the
route, which extends across Texas to Eagle
Pass, thence across the impassible mountain
ranges of Mexico to Topolovampo harbor,
which Ben Butler, the principal schemer,
declared would rival San Francisco, and
destroy Guaymas, but the projectors havo
done nothing. No building has been done,
and Topolovampo remains the crude and
shallow harbor it has been for ages. These
matters will have to be explained, if not
confiscation will promptly follow. Besides
Butler, ex-Senator Wiudom, Wendell Phil
lips, ex-Gov. Eice of Massachusetts, ex-
Mayor Prince of Boston, and others well
known in New England, are involved.
These gentlemen commenced seven years
ago full of enthusiasm and secured the val
uable franchise they now hold by oiling the
leading politicians of the Montezuma Re
public with SGOO worth of stock. The mat
ter is causing much comment in the Mexi
can press.
The Wabash Strike.
St. Louis, Sept. 6. —Chairman Pow
derly and Secretary Turner of the national
executive committee of the Knights of La
bor returned to-day from Sedalia. They
say that a very large and enthusiastic
meeting of Knights was held there last
night, and the men generally were highly
incensed at the failure of negotiations with
General Manager Talmadge of the Wabash
road and at the positions taken by that gen
tleman, and were very anxious to be called
out. The leaders were more conservative
in their views, and curbed the eagerness
of the men to such a degree that they are
now willing to wait the action of the exec
utive committee. Messrs. Powderly and
Turner will to-morrow submit a new prop
osition to Col. Talmadge, to the effect that
as he increases his working force, either by
filling vacancies or by the employment of
additional men. he shall first give places to
the locked-out Knights of Labor, and shall
employ no other men until their number is
German Roman Catholics.
New York, Sept. 6.—The thirteenth an
nual convention of the German Roman
Catholic Central society of the United
States was begun in Williamsburg. Nearly
1,000 delegates, representing every city of
the Union, were welcomed in an address by
Joseph Hcrte, president of the Brooklyn
society. The delegates then attended serv
ice at Most Holy Trinity church, where Ht.
Rev. Bishop Wiggei celebrated pontifical
high mass and Rev. Father May delivered
a sermon. This evening a grand concert
was given at Turner hall. To-morrow the
regular business of the convention will be
preceded by a great parade.
