GENEE1L SPOUTING KBITS OF THE DAT
The female bicyclists were patronized
tnore largely yesterday than either on Mon
day or Tuesday. This fact, doubtless, was
attributable to the exeiting struggle going
on between Miss Jessie Oakes and Miss
Hattie Lewis. The contest between thesa
two was sustained all yesterday, and while
Miss Oakesrednced thelead of her opponent,
she failed to overtake her. Both con
testants rode with remarkable brav
ery and speed. Tlieie were many
interesting features in the race yesterday. One
was the very large attendance of ladies. They
were really more enthusiastic about the race
than the centlcmen, and.it was evident that
each had a favorite. Dunn? last evening
George D. Noremac and Frank H.Hart, the
pedestrians, presented Miss Lewis, the Pitts
burg representative, with a handsome bouquet,
JCoremac mado the presentation, and the inci
dent was cheered to the echo.
AXOIHEE EXCITIXG ACCIDEST.
The day did not pass, however, without an
other spill, and, although nothing serious re
sulted, the consequences might have been ex
ceedingly bad. Miss Snallor was trying to lap
Hiss Oakes, when the machine of the former
came in contact with that of Miss Allen. The
former was thrown clean over the track fence,
and Miss Snallor was thrown underneath the
fence rail. She seemed to be seriously hurt
about the head, and Dr. J. W. Dickson was
called in. He advised her to ride no more dui -ing
the day, but she persisted in continuing in
the race, and she really did welL
During the afternoon a gentleman connected
with the race said: "I see that Miss Ermindo
offers to race any female bicylist in America
any distance from 1 to 1,000 miles, for $500 or
ILIO0 a side. Now I wish to state that to-morrow
I will forward to the New York Clipper
office a forfeit of 230 as a guarantee that
the winner of this race will accom
modate Miss Ermindo. Money talks more
effectively than anything else,and I think there
is a young lady in our race who can defeat
Miss Ermindo. At any rate I'll risk SLO0O on

IT MAT BE 2JISS OAKES.
It could not be definitely known who the
lady is that will be matched against Miss Er
mindo, but it was conjectured that it is Miss
Oakes. However, Miss Oakes has not won the
race yet, although she is going so well that she
isjlitely to outstay Mis Lewis.
Toward m'dnight Miss Oakes had reduced
the lead of Miss Lewis to two miles. This was
only accomplished after the display of some of
the prettiest riding seen on a Pittsburg track.
There were cheers and applause without inter
mission for more than an hour. Miss Lewis,
however, surprised her friends, as she stuck
to her work in first-class stylo. Had she not
been possessed of remarkable courage she
might have lost heart. Miss Von Blunien, who
is not yet recovered from the effects of Mon
day's accident, is also doing excellent work.
Sue is steadily regaining her lost ground. Last
evening she and Miss Oakes made some bril
liant spurts, which aroused the enthusiasm of
the spectators to a very high pitch indeed. The
score for the week so far will show tnat the
contestants have not been indolent bv any
means. The track has been correctly measured
so that each mile recorded is a true mile. The
wonaer really is that the contestants havbeen
able to hold ont ii well. To-night a "ttfeater

Manager Torreyson Tells ofnn Unique Rnl
Ine by an Official.
Frank Torreyson, manager of the McKees
port Ball Club, was in the city, and during a.
conversation gave a most amusing description
of "country" umpires. According to Mr. Tor
reyson's statement, the general public haver
little idea of the strange rulings of the country
umpires. Mr. Torreyson said:
"Jus.t in a way of illustrating what we have
to contend against in country towns .when our
club is playing, let me tell about a circum
stance that occurred at Bedford, Pa., last sum
mer. We were playing there, ana our oppos
ing pitcher was a kind of fanciful young man.
He continued to put his hands behind his
back and pass the ball from one band to
the other. Generally before he pitched the
ball, however, he would spit on it. One time
he had both hands behind bis back and sud
denly withdrew his right as if going to pitch
the ball He hadn't the ball in his hand, how
ever, and we claimed a balk. The umpire re
plied: No,"my friends, that was no balk, be
cause the pitcher has not spit on the ball yet'
This was a settler to us."
Mr. Torreyson went on to say that tlio Mc
Recsnort club may join the Western Pennsyl
vania League. He is opposed to joining the
County League, as he claims there is not plenty
of money behind it He said: "Tho East find
Athletics is only the real solvent clubin the
League, and if wo reorganize at McKcesportI
don't think we will be in the Countv League.
However, we may need some outside help to
organize our club. One great fault of the
Conntv League clubs is that they are so poor
that they cannot be depended on to fulfill their
engagements. Their usual excuse is that they
haven't their car favc."
Mr. Torrevson went on to say that if McKees
port joins the Western Pennsylvania League
he will advocate the adoption of a rule provio

Moore nnd Guerrero Reply to Muldoon's
Remarks Abont Smoking.
Moore, Gucrreroand Noremac the pedes
trians, were talking yesterday about the effects
of cigarettes on athletes. Moore said:
"Regardless of what Mcldoon or anybody
else may say I emphatically state that they do
me good when I'm in a contest At the recent
sir-day race at Madison Square Garden, I often
felt like falling down because of want of sleep
I would then smoke a cigarette and its effect
was wonderful. I would become greatlv re
vived and my sleepiness would leave me. Now
this is a fact and there is no theory about it"
Guerrero was even stronger in his praise of
the cigarette than Moore was. The Mexican
unhesitatingly said that cigarettes Were as re
freshing to him as anything else. He said:
"When X cannot eat anything and feel weary
and drowsy, a cigarette or two freshens me
Noremac docs not use them very much, but
he believes that they are stimulating to pedes
trians. He likes a "good strong smoke," but
not when hard pressed by opponents.
Josephine Bedard has eclipsed Dr. Tan
ner's record. She has tasted nothing but
water for seven years. Her condition resulted
from a severe attack of diphtheria. Other-
.wise she is perfectly healthy. A Montreal

CHICAGO, January Z A billiard company
here is willing to give up $3,000 for a balk line
handicap tournament at New York, the first
class men, such as Schacter, Slosson and
Vignaux, to play M-incb, and all others to play
8-inch. Should such an affair lie arranged,
however, the feeling here is that it could
scarcely be a success. It seems to be agreed
that the only wav to revive professional bil
liards is to institute a national handicap, in
which all the participants shall play the same
line and competent men shall handicap all the
billiard players who are known as experts, the
entrance money to be, say, $250 for each ac
ceptor. There would be no dangerof too many
entries. In no other way is it possible to get
Jacob Scbaef er again before the public in any
role save that of an exhibition player.
The County League.
Al. Pratt stated yesterday that efforts are
being made to try and secure eight clubs for
the Allegheny County Baseball League. At

A SENSATIOXAL MATCH.
J. A. Bnccins and B. Walters Likely to

There is strong probability that a sensational
rifle shooting match will be arranged between
Joseph A. Huggins, of this city, and Bernard
Walters, of the East The latter has lately
been scoring numerous victories, and has chal
lenged any man in the country to shoot a 200
Yesterday Mr. Huggins received a letter
from W. M. Farron, ot Holyoke, Mass.. asking
the former if he would contest in a match
against Walters. The letter went on to say
that the Pittsburcer can find plenty of back
ing in the East to contest against Walters at
ZOO yards, each contestant to have 100 shots.
Mr. Huggins will make up bis mind to-day
regarding whether or not he will go on with
the match. He U tolerably confident
hat he can defeat Walters, and certainly all
ihe experts in Western Pennsylvania are of
that opinion. If the match takes place it will
be for a stake. It wonld probably be more in
teresting if arrangements could be made to
have a home and home match. If this conld
be done PittsDurgers wonld have the pleasure
of seeing some first-class shooting.

Buffalo, January 2. The annual meeting
of the Buffalo Baseball Clnb washed this even
ing at Genesse Hall. Deacon James White
came on from Detroit to preside. The club
was sufficiently successfnl last year to warrant
a 2 per cent dividend. The number of directors
were reduced from nine to five, and officers
elected as follows: President, James White;
Vice-President John C. Bowe; Secretary
Charles It. Fitzgerald; Treasurer, Edward 8.
Dann; Director, James Franklin. Mr. Bowe
said that nothing abont players was decided
upon, but that men wonld be encaged to play
in the places he and White would occupy, in
case they did not get their releases from De

consult with Rowe about players. A pitcher is
more desired by them than, anything else.

SPECIAL TEtlQEAJI TO TUE DISPATCH
Lewistox-, Me., January 2. It was said
that Dr. Tanner, after his fast of 40 days,
presented a terribly emaciated appearance.
To-d,ay your "correspondent met and con
versed with a young lady, who, if the story
told by herself and friends be a true one, is
an extraordinary curiosity. Josephine
Bedard is a pretty, dark-eyed, vivacious,
French-Canadian girl, who has been on a
Christmas visit to her uncle and cousins, at
Lewiston, for the past fewdaysj and who has
fasted more than 2,550 days, nnd by this it is
meant that she has neither eaten nor desired
to eat, nor tasted food in any form, for that
length of time.
When I.called upon her to-day nnd intro
duced myself through an interpreter, she
being nnable to converse in English, I
stated my object and was very politely re
ceived. It was at the dinner hour, and her
relatives were all partaking of the noon re
past, while she was leisurely reclining jn a
rocking chair apparently deeply interested
in a work on history in her native language.
Her story, as told by herself, was that she
was born on her father's farm in Tingwicb,
a small agricultural town in Canada, in
1872. At her birth her mother was stricken
with a fatal disease, which terminated when
Josephine was but 3 months old.
BEGINNING OF A I.ONG FAST.
As a child she grew robust and strong,
was given an opportunity to attend a coun
try school a short time, and afterward as
sisted in the management of the household
duties at home. On Christmas Day, 1881,
she was violently attacked with diphtheria,
and for three weeks was suspended between
life and death, her condition at this time
being such that it became necessary to inject
nourishment down her throat. From this
sickness begins the date of her prolonged
and curious fast, and io-day, as for years,
her means of subsistence is derived from
water only, which she drinks as people
No form of eatables can arouse her sleep
ing appetite and the most delicions fruits
are no temptation to her. In appearance
she is of medium height, weighing 125
pounds, with a symmetrical figure, intellect
ual bead, and what is called a pretty face,
with sparkling brown eyes, and short, coal
black hair. She is a fascinating brnnette
of demure conntenance and modest bearing.
'She never eat something," said one of
the family, "all zee time she be here."
This 'remark caused Josephine to smile,
showing a set of even pearl white teeth,
and at the same time revealing a set- of
dimples which might arouse the jealousy of
an ordinary society girl. Mr. Bedard told
me that when in Canada, in order to remove
the doubts of a1 few skeptical persons,
Josephine was locked in a room for 15 days
as a test! with no nourishment but water,
and that she came out at the end-of that
time without experiencing the slightest ill
ness. The factvthat she is very fond of
books and spendsYhe greater portion of her
spare moments inYeading or study, would
seem to indicate that her mind has a literary
At present she enjoys perfect health.
Headaches and other ailments that flesh is
heir to are entirely unknown to her. She
believes in amusements, and when at home
participates with the other boys and girls of
the neighborhood in their country festivi
ties. A leading Montreal physician pro
nounced her a physical wonder, and offered
Josephine's father 5700 for the privilege of
taking her into his custody, with a view of
solving the cause of her peculiar condition.
This, Mr. Bedard refused to do.
Several other inducements have been held
out to her to travel as a curiosity, but she
prefers to remain in her country home,
where she has the care of her father's five
children by a second wife, and where the
onerous duties of a farm household devolve
upon her. Josephine Bedard is a charming,
industrious young girl, who would be an
ornament to any household.
Your correspondent broached the some
what delicate subject of her ideas as to a
future marriage, which brought a percepti
ble blush to her cheeks as she answered with
unaffected sadfiesty: "I like the world; but
I never had any thought of marriage. I am
young yet," she said laughingly; "and I
think there is plenty of time Defore me to

Panama, December 24. Some anxiety
has been occasioned here by the crisis
through which tho Panama Canal Company
has been passing recently. Serious alarm,
however, has not been felt, the faith in the
ultimate successful issue of the enterprise
being great Work still continues steadily
on the canal. The various contractors have
promptly paid off up to date, and everybody
seems cheerful and unaffected. Apart from
the' inevitable indulgence in talk more or
less wild by uninformed and irresponsible
persons, the only sign of any crisis is to be
found in the money market, where the pre
mium on gold and - foreign notes has ad
vanced from 44 to 60 per cent.
One of the more curious features of the
situation, is the manifest alarm that is felt
abroad regarding the resultant condition of
affairs on the Isthmus. From the fact that
ships of war are bein? sent down.it would
appear that riots and disorder are consid
ered sure to occur. Of these the preliminary
indications are yer to be seen. There does
not appear to be any disposition on the part
of the populace to excitement. But even
were these tears to be realized, the country
should be independent of the active inter
vention of foreign aid. With 600 troops in
this city ready at a moment's notice for
transportation to any point between here
and Colon, and with a well-armed and
highly-disciplined police force of 150 men
in Colon, Panama is in a position to repress
any riotous tendencies that, maybe manifested.

-tSFECUW. TELEGRAM TO THE MSPATCH.l
New York, January 3. Sergeant
0'Toolc,of the Central office, with Detectives
"Webb, Saul and Tappan, yesterday raided
the policy shop at No:, 487 Sixth avenue,
where gambling was also going on. They
arrested Eobert Smith, James Howard,
and Patrick Smith, and seized
3,000 poker chips, two red and black layouts
and other paraphernalia. .The arrests were'
made on warrants issued by Judge Ford.
Anthony Comstock procured theevidence
against the 'policy shop, and assisted the
other officers in making the raid. The doors
had to beYoreed open, and when the officers
entered a crowd of colored men who
were playing policy attacked them
and they had to draw their
revolvers. Comstock chased a burly
negro out into the yard, where the fellow
turned on him and struck him in the face,
knocking him .down. He was getting the
worsPof "it when Detective Tappan rescned
him from his assailant, who got away.
Comstock had one of his eyes blackened,
his nose injured and his face bruised. The
prisoners were locked up at police headquarters.'
The news from IJayfi is still slightly
mixed. Hlppolyte desired backing from
France, but failed to get it. Admiral Luce
has sent his official report on the surrender
of the Haytien Republic to the Department
at Washington. A story to the effect that
Legitime had threatened Americans living
at Hayti is generally disbelieved.

St. Loots, January 2. A man giving
the name of John Arthur Bnrns was ar
rested here to-day for a murderous assault
on a woman in a disreputable house at 621
Clark avenue. When asked to pleadj he
answered: "In the presence of God, the de
stroyer of impurity, not guilty." The
woman testified that Burns had choked her
and threatened to cut her throat and tear
out her heart. Her neck was badly lacer
ated by his nails. He changed his mind,
and taking her by the ankles, pushed her
body out of a third story window and was
in the act of hurling her to the sidewalk
when the officer seized him.
The man, who is as mad as a march hare,
says he was ordered by God to slay this
woman for her iniquity." He said he came
from hades, and wnenhe had completedJiis
mission, wonfd return there.
THEIR ANNUAL MEETING.
" fSFECIAL TELZGBAM TO TOE DISrATCH.l
New York, January 2. A week ago
last, Saturday, Dr. Augusle sailed from this
port for Paris. It was common report at,
the time, credited generally by merchants
having business with Hayti, that
he .had gone there on a mis
sion from Hippolyte, the leader of the
revolutionary forces of the North of Hayti.
The belief was strengthened by the know
ledge that the French authorities in Hayti
were astride the fence. In tire South they
were openly .for Legitime. In the North
they sided with Hippolyte.
It was reported yesterday that a cable had
been received from Paris by a merchant of
this city stating that' Dr. Auguste had had
an interview with President Carnot, of the
French republic. Dr. Auguste asked that
Hippolvte be recognized. President Car
not replied evasively. The cabled
statements that Erance stands with
Legitime through thick and thin,
and that the American squadron wonld
not have taken the Haytien Republic away
without a fight had a French man-of-war
been on the spot, are scouted by Haytian
merchants in this city. France stands, they
say, exactly as the United States stands.
The statements in an afternoon paper that
Legitime was imprisoning Americans and
had declared that he would shoot every
foreigner who interfered with Haytian poli
tics if he had to shoot 500, is not believed
genuine by merchants in this city having
relations with Hayti.
, -the purchase of the British tramp steamer
Red Jtose by the Dominion Government as
a national man-of-war has been widely her
alded as an indication of approaching war
between San Domingo and Hayti, the result,
it has been stated, of Iviytia"n seizures of
Dominican vessels in Dominican waters.
Consul Julia, of San Domingo, talked last
night, for the !first time of the new
Dominican navy. The Holland loan of
54,000,000, ha said, was made long before
any difficulty arose between North and
South Hayti, and was made solely for the
purpose of reorganizing the army and pro
enrineanavy lor ordinary purposes of na
tional self-defense. The Dominican navy
was to consist of four vessels, and an agent
is now in Europe negotiating for their pur
chase. The first of them, and the only one
so far purchased, was the Bed Bose. She
is now due in San Domingo. She will be
called El Presidente.

had anything to say Mr. Arthur replied:
"I do not feel that I have any right to
comment upon what is said here, but I may
say that I have very strong doubts that
Mr. Cavener made these statements. I can
hardly believe he would be likely 'to say
anything of. that kind under the circum

willing to say anything."
"Do yon care to sav whether or not your
views correspond with those of Mr. Cavener,
as expressed in this dispatch, concerning
the likelihood of serious trouble ensuing if
certain concessions, are not made?" was
"No, I do not care to say anything abent

Admiral Lace's Keport on the Retaking of
the Haytien Republic.
Washington, D. C, January 2. The
Secretary of State to-day made public the
official report of the Bear AdmiralXuce on
the retaking of the Haytien Republic at
Hayti. The report is dated December 21.
The Admiral states that the Galena and
and Yantic arrived at Hayti on December
20. A letter from the Haytian Minister at
"Washington and addressed to General Legi
time was sent ashore. The time set for the
delivery ofthe Haytien Bcpublic was3r.
II., and at 2:30 a Haytian gunboat assisted
the Yantic in towing the vessel to the outer
harbor, where it was formally turned over to
Admiral Luce by 'Vice Admiral Galliard,
senior officer ot the Haytian Navy.
Admiral Luce, at the dafe of his report,
had not formally accepted the Haytien Re
public, but waswaiting until certain of her
belongings, which had been taken on shore
by the Haytians, had been restored. Mean
while a party of seamen had been sent on
board to take care ot the vessel Aintil the
arrival of her crew. The Haytien Bepublic
was to ne turned over the next day to an
English crew to be sent to New York, and
delivered to the United States Government
The reason for thisaction had not been made
apparent to Admiral Luce.
There had been some friction over a slight
misunderstanding in the exchange of
naval courtesies, but the Admiral expected
to adjust the trouble, when he would make
an official call upon General Legitime.
The Yantic and Galena are to be kept at
Hayti for the present, as p precautionary
measure, and as soon as possible the Ad
miral intended to send one of the boats to
Cane Haytien and other ports in the hands
Among the correspondence forwarded by
Admiral Luce to the State Department, is a
letter from the Haytian Secretary of
Foreign Affairs, to Minister Preston, which
is as follows: Br reason of the friendshin
existing between the Bepublic of the United
States and the Bepublic of Hayti, the Gov
ernment has decided to give np to the Ad-'
miral the merchant steamer Haytien Be

At the same time the Government makes
some reservations in what concerns the
judiciary action to which it may have re
course before the American Courts.
Of LcenI Lights Who, Besponded to the
Country's Call Are Moving to Honor
Brave St. Jackson Recollections of tho
Court Infantry The Part Playjd by
Them In the Defense of the Knox
The year 1861 is not so far baek in the
dim past but that most middle-aged people
recollect it, some with anguish still keen,
as it was the year the great Civil "War was
begun; but even in this city there are few,
apparently at least, who have any recollec
tion of a band of heroic men who at that
time pledged theirlivea, fortunes and sacred
honors to repel the invader, should he ever
wantonly invade Pittsburg. The organiza
tion was called the Court Infantry. It
didn't get any chance to go where glory
awaited it until one morning in Jane, 1863,
when it was ordered'ont by Major-General
Brooks, TJ. S. A., commanding the Depart
ment of the Monongahela, to defend the
Knox strawberry farm from the ravages of
an army of the "Confederate Statesof Ameri
,ca," supposed to be officered in chief by
Generals Stonewall Jackson, Jnbal Early
and John Morgan.
It was decided to make a stand at the
strawberry beds for various reasons. The
ground was good for strategetic purposes,
and, as the ladies ofthe city had contracted
to supply the cream and cake, it was
thought that with the abundant supply of
strawberries there would bo no possible dan
ger of famine. Then military authorities
reasoned thus: If American soldierscan be
relied upon to do their duty with notbins
more substantial in the way of staying their
stomachs than patriotism, hard tack, sow
belly and black coffee, what may not be ex
pected of them when supported on straw
berries, cream and cake, backed by lovely
woman's smiles or tears?
AN AFFECTING SCENE.
The Court Infantry, as might be gathered
from the name, was composed largely of
lawyers, and there were many moist eves
among the wives" and sweethearts they left
behind them when the order to tnrn out
came. The historian of the organization
writes that the wife of one of the lawyers
sang "in sobbing shrill voice," to which he
might have added hysterical, while pointing
toward Boyd's Hill:
If I was up on yondr hill
I'd sit me down and cry me fill.
And every tear wud turn a mill.
Oh! why did yees go for a so-ger.
She had not got through with the chorus,
which was pregnant with a promise that
time might heal her woe. when she was or
dered by the Captain of the Court Infantry
to "shut np," and she shut, onlv remark
ing sotto voce when the order "fall in" was
given "an" troth, some of yees may fall out
before all is over."
"When all was ready the Court Infantry
marched down to Smithfield street, over the
Monongahela bridge, np what is now known
as Brownsville avenue, and out to the Knox
farm, to the tune "The Girl I Left Behind
Me," hut Generals Stonewall Jackson,
Jubal Early, add John Morgan didn't
await their coming, but fled precipitately,
and Morgan getting cut from the main
division of his army, was captured in a
morass near Salem, Ohio. But though the
Court Infantry did not allow the C. S. A.
minions to have the "Knox farm strawber
ries, it found abundant employment in
keeping the mob off them. The mob had
gathered under pretense'of assisting to dig
