There has really been bo much -written
and expressed recently about the local race
tracks that a reminder to the effect that
both tracks are still in the same place as
heretofore may be pleasing to sporting
people. At any rate a plain statement as
to how matters stand will be of interest to
all iocal patrons of horse racing and the
The public was told on Saturday that F.
A. Parke had mysteriously disappeared to
Philadelphia with the object ot handing
over a document called "the charter of the
State Fair Association." Mr. Parke was
in the city yesterday, and during a long con
versation with the writer he aid
"I am not responsible for where newt papers
place me. I ha r not been at Philadelphia this
trip, but I have been at Chicajio on business

cause the public, without a correct under
standing of the matter, may think that some
gigantic scheme is going on to swindle some
body. THAT PHILADELPHIA MEETING.
"I have been in Chicago and not in Philadel
phia, but I am interested in a meeting to be
held in Philadelphia legardmg the Tri-Statc
Fair Association. Of course TnE Dispatch,
a Ions; time ago, published the fact that an
effort was being made by some people to se
cure the charter of the Fair Association. Sev
eral parties were after it, and we have offers
for it yet; that is, we can sell the charter and
its right to an) new company. I have tho
charter and I can dispose of it to anjbody.
Ve are making no great effort to part with it,
nor are we burdened with applications. I want
to have it applied to Exposition park. I am
not inclined to interest myself :n horse-racing,
but I only want a portion of the park to utilize
for theatrical and variety performances. Now
I tatc that everything i covered, so that
the public need not be misled any more in the
Mr. Parke was definitely asked about the
provisions of the chaiter. One question was:
"Does the charter clearly permit poolsell
ing'" "Now I couldn't answer that clearlv either
way. As far a I know thecharter provides for
trials of tpeed' among hor-cs. Not a word is
laid about poolselLng, bookmaking or anv
other form of betting We think that by infer
ence the tracks will be allowed poolselling. bat
I admit that there is nothing stated directly in
the charter which means this.
THE CHARTER RATHER SHAKT.
The matter may stand an argument in court,
but the charter's strongest term is that provid
ing for trials of speed.' Nothing is said about
"Well, I am disposed to allow the charter to
go to the Exposition Park Association, provid
ing I can secure an interest in the venture. I
only am concerned tn the amusement part of it,
and nothing like racing ever day. I really
don't know w hat will be done. I suppose w e
must wait until we see what tho Legislature
will do with the amendment to the poolselling
law. When that point is settled our position
will soon be determined."
Without doubt part of Mr. Parke's state
ment is of the greatest importance to horbc
racing patrons He states that the charter, con
cerning which there has been so much talk, is
dooid of any direct provision in favor of bet
ting or poolselling. Mr. Paikc has nevercome
out so plain and. strong before, and ltmaj.
therefore, be taken for granted thit the only
hope for the local tracks is the amendment to
the poolselling law. It further knocks on the
head all these wild stories about the rharter
being able to provide races every dav.
Mr. Parke stated list cenmg that he will
have a conversion with the Secretary of Ei
position park on the matters to-dav. If the
Fair Association charter is what Sir. Parke
now savs it is, it is not likely that any move
may be made to purchase it. The truth is, it
seems to be useless. A gentleman connected
with one of the local tracks j esterday after
"I am certain thatnothingbut a new law will
permit poolselling on our race tracks. The Fair
Association charter is useless, and when it is
examined my statement will be proven correct.
Of course we and the Homen ooii track officials
are all eager to have raco meetings this j ear.
If there is no legal poolselling there will be no
A CALL TOR SMITH.
That New York Ammciir Has a Chance to
During the last few weeks there have been
many conjectures concerning the question:
Who is Harry Smith? The latter, of course, is
the name of a pedestrian who has backing to
run Pnddy, Nikirk, McClelland or any other
Pittsburgcr. A ery good authority stated
that "Smith" is Harry Fredericks, tho pe
destrian who accompanied Jljers to Australia.
This guess may be right or it may be wrong,
but it is singular that not a single New York
paper ever refers to Harry hmitli. The latter
isa protege or fcomethmc ele of a New York
sporting paper and et. that paper nevor makes
any reference to "Harrv hnnth." Here is a
test for Smith Ed Kikirk or Peter Pnddy

this because anybody wanting to back Smith,

Hoar in Hard Lnck.
Wixkesbaeke. Pa., January 8. At noon to
day a report comes from Wananne, ten miles
from here, that Maurice Hurley and Thomas
Hoar, well known pugilists, fought 42 rounds
with bare knuckles for S5Q0 a side. The battle
is said to have been desperately fought. In the
forty-second round Hoar was knocked out and
the ficht was awarded to Hurley. Hoar is
under indictment for being emraged in a prize
fight with James Dillon on the 2Sth of May last,
at Lee Park in this city, and has escaped being
arrested since that time. Detectives left here
this afternoon for Wanamie, and even effort
will be made to secure Hoar, as well as Hurley.
President Nlmick stated esterday that be is
anxious to have Pete McShannic well placed
for next season. Mr. Nimick says that he al
ways has a strong admiration for local players,
and desires that they have an opportunity to
prove their worth. The President, however,
reasons, and rightfully, that a National League
club cannot afford to take anv chances. As a
result Pete McSbannic, a good man, has really
the best wishes of the officials of the club. Mc
Shannic will, therefore, be given every chance
to make a good engagement.
Simcox in Line.
Mr. Simcox, of McKeesport, now comes to
the front with a 2-year-old trotter and evidently
means business. He says: "I desire to enter
my horse, Dunbar Wilkes, in any 2-year-old
race that may be arranged, sweepstake or
otherwise. I will trot him against any or all of
the Pittsburg 2-year-olds referred to in Tues
day's Dispatch, forS250 or 5300 a corner, the

27 months in ace. I mean business, and now is

The report went on to show that the club was

YERT KIND WORDS FOR AMERICA.
German Orpins Say American Fifhters Are leadinj

The failure of the charges against Jlorier
has not stopped the discussion of the episode
in Germany. It is now asserted that the
Bismarcks hoped to stab England
through her Ambassador. Some sensa
tional features of the affair are made
public. Joseph Chamberlain and his Amer
ican bride were warmly welcomed home last
night by the people of Birmingham. It is
asserted that an American led the Samoan
forces against the Germans in the last battle.
Berlin, January 8. The partial with
drawal of the charges against Sir R. D.
Morier by the Post, in accordance with the
promise of Count Herbert Bismarck, is Jar
from ending the incident. The Chancellor
is now in better health, and is expected to
arrive here to-morrow. Count Von Hatz
fcldt leaves to-day for London. The result
of Lord Salisbury's remonstrances in con
nection with the Morier affair will probably
appear shortly. The Government organs
evince an uneasy desire " to disentangle
themselves from the aflair. The Mchsan
zeiger to-night publishes a letter tending to
prove the truth of Morier's assertions that
he sent no news about the Germans crossing
the Moselle because he had none to send.
As a further result of Lord Salisbury's re
monstrances, the National Zeituwj to-night
declares that the apparently inspired attack
upon Morier has little import when viewed
in connection with the maintenance of good
relations with England, and it expresses the
hope that the incident will be treated like
the Mackenzie aff.iir and allowed to drop,
adding: "Without iurther material one
must be satisfied with a verdict of non
liquet." The article concludes with compli
mentary references to England and Lord
A semi-official correspondent of the
Hontaas Jieiue, said to be a German official
occupying a prominent position in "Wilhelm
strasse, Berlin, states that the reason for the
attack on Sir R. D. Jlorier is the latter's
supposed hostility to the Austro-Ger-man
alliance. The Tagblatt says
that the Bisma-ckists are attacking
England, not Morier, and that they are
ready to go to the length of seeking an alli
ance with Russia, if that is necessary, to
ruin England's world-wide position. A ma
jority of the Vienna papers condemn the
attack on Morier. The Pester Lloyd 6ays
that from a moral point of view, Morier has
perfectly vindicated his character.
JOE'S HAPPY DAT.
Birmingham Welcomes Chamberlain and
IIU Wife Warm Words for America.
Birmingham, Jannary 8. The Eight
Honorable Joseph Chamberlain and his
bride were given a most cordial greeting by
the people of Birmingham to-night. The
reception to the distinguished couple was
held in the town hall, which had
been converted for the occasion into
a salon and beautifully decorated
with artistic groups of ferns and
orchids and other plants. The gathering
was a large and representative one. Until
the arrival of the guests of the evening the
time was occupied in listening to a concert
and viewing the presents intended for the
bride, for which the citizens of Birmingham
had subscribed 700.
The entrance of Mr. and Mrs. Chamber
lain, who were accompanied by Mr. Cham
berlain's sons and daughter, Lady Mande
ville and others, was the signal
ior great cheering, which was again
and again renewed, the organist
meanwhile playing a wedding march.
Handsome bouquets were presented to Mrs.
Chamberlain, who was greatly pleased at
the heartiness of the reception, and re-
Eeatedly bowed her acknowledgements. The
ride was dressed in pink satin, and her or
naments were diamonds and sapphires.
The presentation of the wedding gifts and
accompanying addresses followed. The
gifts consisted of a pearl necklet with a
diamond clasp from the citizens, and a
brilliant diamond brooch, containing 55
gems, in the shape of a six-pointed star, the
gift of the women of Birmingham.
Mr. Chamberlain, in replying to the ad
dresses, said that they surpassed his ex
pectations in the warmth of their greeting
to his wife whose ancestors left England
over 250 years ago. Cheers. Although he
neither hoped nor expected to lessen her
love for the country ot her birth, he knew
that she was prepared to take up life among
them in all its fullness, and that she would
say with Euth: "Thv people shall be
my people." Cheers.j Keferring to the
feeling of kinship with America, expressed
in the address just presented, he said that
that was no new feeling in Birmingham.
At the time of America's greatest trial the
crisis of the Union the eloquent voice of
John Bright, now unfortunately hushed for
a time by illness, was raised again and
again in 'that very hall to defend the
integrity of the Republic. The
same feeling permeated the whole country.
It was now admitted on all hands that a
serious quarrel with America would be the
greatest national calamity. Cheers. Dif
ferences were certain to arise from time to
time, but the democracies of both countries
were determined that they should be amic
ably arranged. He was glad to say
thit even that august body, the
United States Senate, had nothing to say
about his private negotiations which his
hearers had just ratified by their presence.
He again tendered his own and his wife's
heartfelt thanks for the kindly reception
and beautiful gifts.

Berlin, January 8. It is understood
that Samoan affairs will not be made the
subject of special debate in the Reichstag,
but will be referred to during the discus

Samoa has created a deep impression, and
will strengthen the arguments of the anti
Colonial party in the East Africa debate.
The Kieler Zeilung states the Samoan losses
are greatest in officers and men. The
National Zeitung complains that America's
recalling her consul some time ago did no
good, for it has been proved that the natives
were led from an ambuscade by an.

rsPECUL telegram to the dispatch.
Nashville, January 8. "Washington
Irving Bishop, the mind reader, has ap
peared n a new role. The people of Nash
ville cannot be said to have approved of his
performance, however. Bishop and his
present wife arrived here last week and
registered at the Maxwell House. He has
been on a tour of the South, and, until a
short time ago, had Harrison Millard, the
song writer and pianist, as his assistant.
Millard left Bishop in a huff, and the lat
ter's conduct since then has been erratic, to
say the least.
About 9.30 o'clock, two nights ago, the
occupants of rooms at the Maxwell heard a
woman's screams issuing from the apart
ment occupied by the Bishops. Several
gentlemen opened the door of the room and
found Mrs. Bishop, in her handsome attire,
crouching in a corner by the bed. Bishop
stood over her, in a rage.
'Tor God's sake, take him away," ex
claimed Mrs. Bishop.
'Pshaw! She has histerics," muttered
Bishop, who was in his shirtsleeves, "and
she has been trying to kill herself with a
caseknife. He walked away from the
shrinking, crouching figure, but approached
again. He did this several times, and each
time the woman shielded herself and ap
pealed to the bystanders to keep Bishop
Finally, on being remonstrated with in
an emphatic manner, Bishop left his wife,

nose and wrist. A corner of the bed sheet

f SPECIAL TELEGBAM TO THE DISPATCIt.l
Harrisburg, January 8. A largely at
tended meeting, under the auspices of
Councils and Board of Trade, was held in
the Court House to-night, to boom the move
ment to build an iron bridge across the
Susquehanna river at this point, at an esti
mated cost of $200,000. About $13,000 were
subscribed at the meeting in addition to
nearly 5100,000 previously granted.
Robert Snodgrass, ex-Deputy Attorney
General presided. As showing" the heavy
tolls charged by the old bridge company,
a statement was made by Captain Moore,
formerly principal of the White Hall
Soldiers Orphans' SehoqJ,that it cost SO cents
to have a sack of coffee weighing 150 pounds,
bought in Harrisburg delivered on the
Cumberland county shore, while the same
can be shipped from Philadelphia for 20
cents. The success of the new bridge enter
prise seems to be assured.

"Washington, January 8. After the
expenditure of four days in useless fili
bustering ever the effort to change a rule,
the House to-day recommitted the proposi
tion to the Committee on Rules, from which
it originated. The object of the change
proposed was to prevent the opponents of
various bills, notably the Pacific Eailroad
funding bill and the bill to create the Ter
ritory of Oklahama, from wasting the whole
of suspension Mondays by the introduction
and enforced reading of useless bills. Four
days have been spent and a Democratic
caucus has been held trying to effect this
purpose, and now the House is in the same
position as it was before-
The condition of those bills has not been
advanced a s-tcp. When suspension day
comes around again the filibusterers can
filibuster to their heart's content. It is
true the Democrats who were present at the
caccuf last night may not participate in
this filibustering, but even if all the Demo
crats bow to the will of the caucus, Messrs.
Anderson, of Iowa, and Anderson, of Kan
sas, two Republicans, still remain to carry
on the fight. There seems, therefore, to be
no chance of either one of those two bills
becoming a law at this session.

The Smalls-Elliott C'onlesttoLcnd to a Long
and Warm Debate.
SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Washington, January 8. An attempt
was made this afternoon in the House to get
up for consideration the last of the contested
election cases, in which Mr. Smalls, a col
ored man, and ex-member of Congress, is
contesting the scat of Mr. Elliott, of South
Carolina. Owing to the filibustering tac
tics of Mr. "Weaver, of Iowa, who says he
is determined nothing should be done until
the Oklahoma bill has been considered, the
attempt was unsuccessful, but the case 13 in
such a position that it is the first order of
business to-mprrow, and the debate upon it
will then begin unless Mr. Weaver renews
his exhibition of one-man power. The case
of Smalls-Elliott is one which has attracted
a deal of interest and the discussion upon it
will be listened to with more than ordinary
attention. Its salient features have already
been discussed in these dispatches and it
is unnecessary to again allude to them
Fr in the fact that Mr. Smalls is a negro,
the debate upon his contest will in all pro
bability lead to an extended discussion of
the great race problem in the South, to
gether with all that that implies in the way
ot charges of intimidation and suppression
of votes. But while the bloody shirt may
wave to some extent, over at least a portion
of the Bepublican side of the House, there
are those on the Democratic side who do not
propose that it shall be done with impunity.
Several of the Southern Democrats in antic
ipation of the coming fight on this case,
have been preparing themselves to defend
their section, their election methods, and
their colleague, Mr. Elliott. Knowing that
the negro question would take an important
place in the debate, these Southerners have
been collecting data on that problem, and
their speeches will consequently contain a
great deal of information pertinent to a
subject which is of considerable current

rSPECIAL TELEGKAM TO THE DISPATCH
Washington, January 8. In regard to
Judge Jackson's decision, Colonel Morrison
said to-day: "We decided that a railroad
running South from the Ohio river must
take freight from all roads north of the
riveron equal terms." Judge Jackson has
decided that a road south of the river may,
in compliance with a special arrangement
with one of the roads; take freight from it
at the regular through rate, and take from
the other.roads at the local rate from Louis
ville. Now if that decision is good law, there is
an end to the through rate and continuous
lines. You can divide a line from Chica
go to New York into two or three sections,
and get around the inter-State commerce
law. If Judge Jackson's decision stands it
will take a lot of work off the commission,
but there won't be much left of the law.

Has Had Two Disputes With tbo

tSPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCIT.
Chicago, January 8. The report from
Cleveland that Chief Master Arthur, of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, in
tends to resign the office he has held for
nearly 12 years, seems to be well-founded.
The first dispute between Mr. Arthur and
the brotherhood occurred at the Chicago
Convention in 1887, when he strongly rec
ommended in his report the continuance of
the graded system of payment for engineers,
and the convention, under the lead of the
Western engineers, who were mostly new
men. dsfeated this measure and adopted the
rules which1 demanded the same rate of pay
for an engineer who has served one year as
for one who was an accomplished mechanic.
It was expected at that time that Mr. Ar
thur would resign, but his friends induced
him to reconsider bis intention, and he was
re-elected without opposition.
It is also a well-known fact that Mr. Ar
thur was opposed to the manner in which
the Burlington strike was ordered. Instead
of waiting lor the arrival of President Per
kins from Boston, after their conferences
with General Manager Stone had failed,
and after Mr. Perkins had announced that
he would come to Chicago and hear what
the men had to say, the Grievance Commit
tee of engineers and firemen, headed by
Hoge and Hanrahan, ordered a strike at
once. Mr. Arthur and Mr. Perkins reached
Chicago the same day, but when a confer
ence was asked for Mr. Perkins announced
that the men were already on strike, and
therefore could only be treated as ex-employes
of the road. Failing to adjust the
difficulties, Mr. Arthur at last reluctantly
approved of the strike, and thns the strikers
were enabled to draw their pay from the
worKing memoers ot tne brotherhood.
These are the reasons which are believed
to have led Mr. Arthur to contemplate sever
ing his connection with the organization.
As soon as his successor is appointed hewill
be placed in charge of the magazine pub
lished by the engineers at Cleveland.

most valuable principle of industrial life.
He dwelt with particular severity on deals
between scalpers and managers.
Bostox, January 8. The annual dinner
of the Boston Merchants' Association,
which took place here this evening in the
Hotel Vendome, proved an occasion of un
usual significance. Among the invited
guests were as follows: Hon. T. IT. Cooley,
of Washington, Chairman of the inter-State
Commerce Commission; Prof. Richard F.
Ely, of Johns Hopkins University; Franci3
B. Thurber, Governor Ames, President
Capen, of Tufts College; General Francis
A. Walker, Josiah H. Benton, Jr., and
General N". P. Banks.
After the dinner "combination and com
petition" and allied subjects were announced
as the topics for discussion, and while upon
his feet Judge Cooley, of the inter-State
Commission, substantially said:
"I believe I am expected to say something on
the subject of combinations and concentrations
of interests, with special references to the
business of transportation of persons and
property by railroad. I do not understand that
the question of the repeal of the inter State
Commerce Act is to be discussed at this time,
and if it were I do not know that I should care
to speak upon it. I may say, however, that the
act has a good purpose in view.
DESIG2T OP THE ACT.
It was intended to correct enormous abuses
previously existing, but they cannot be cor
rected without cutting oil some sources of im
proper income. The urgent call foramoditi
cation of the act which comes from railroad
circles has sprung up recently. There were in
deed some objections made to it immediately
after its passage, as well as before, but when it
was given effect it wa3 found, quite to tho sur
prise of somo who had prophesied disaster to
the railroads from it, that the disasters did not
I desire to call special attention to this fact:
That the period during which tho law operated
most to the benefit of the railroads was pre
cisely that during which its provisions were
best obserred. I think that to be an un
deniable fact, and if it is a fact, it is deserving
of more attention than up to this time it has
received from the managers of railroads. It
was also the period during which the law was
complained of least There are very vigorous
complaints now. They relate mainly to the
cause of the act which forbids the greater
charge on the shorter haul on the same line,
in the same direction where the circumstances
and conditions are similar, and that which
makes cooling unlawful.
The first mentioned clause embodies a prin
ciple right in itself. In large sections of the
country tho roans havecomo into conformity
with it and not suffered loss from doing so. In
othors it was not practicable to do so, at least
immediately. But the difficulties will diminish
as the managers como to better understanding
OPE2T TO THE PUBLIC.
The law intends that railroad business of the
country shall bo done openly and with full pub
licity. This equal and just purpose of the law
is defeated by contrivances that are c early op
nosed to the intent of the law if not to Its
terms. Now, when parties are thus busy in
contriving methods for rendering tho law of no
etfect, their evasions of its purpose are seen to
have a direct tendency to diminish the corpor
ate revenues. They are hardly the parties to
put themselves upon the stand to prove that
the law is injuring the roads.
I must insist that the argument now made
for pooling is radically nnsound and vicious,
because it rests upon an assumption that viola
tion of law by one is justification for violation
by another. The sentiment in raUroad circles
on this subject is not only opposed to sound
public morality, but it necessarily tends to the
perpetuation of the very evils under which the
road- aro now suffering. For a very large pro
portion of railroad controversies voluntary
pooling cannot possibly be a remedy, for the
obvious reason that they contain matters which
have to be settled before there can beany pool
ing. They concern the sub-structure, so to
Pooling with a legal sanction would havo all
the elements of weakness that attended the old
pooling, except one. When tbo pool as it ued
to be formed broke up. there was no enforcing
such obligations as had been incurred while it
existed; there was no compelling payment of
balances. With a legalized pooling there might
be power to do this.
TKUSTS AND TOOLS.
The difference between a trust and a pool is
almost as great as that between a despot on tho
throne and the player who mimics him on the
stage. Pools are things to be feared. They an
tagonize a leading and most valuable principle
of industrial lifo in their attempt, not to curb
competition merely, but to put an end to it. All
these things go to show that something else
need3 reforming besides the law. It is poor
reformatory work that the law can do in any
line of business unless the moral forces in tho
same business come to its support.
I have spoken of the want of reformatory
power in the law. One who investigates rail
roid disorders will bo surprised to find how
many of them, though plainly opposed to the
smnt of the law, may still be practiced legally.
Rate-cutting in passengerservice is very largely
done by the use of tickets which the law ex
pressly exempts from its provision, and coupon
tickets are so manipulated by one company as
to cut the rates of another without the other
being a participant of otherwise than it suffers
from a fraud practiced upon it.
A crying evil in railroad service is the com
bination between the scalper and the un
scrupulous General Passenger Agent. This
will be broken up just as soon as there are ap
plied in railroad matter:, the maxim of busi
ness prndence which are expected to control in
other interests. If the combination in the
same person of the two characters of railroad
manager, in whatever official position and of
speculator in railroad stocks could be rendered
impossible, we might hope to see the time when
the question what is right and wrong in rail
road matters would be heard a good deal of tener
than it is now and the question what can bo
done in evasion of the law without encounter
ing its penalties a good deal more infrequently.
