Eowe and White Case.
GENERAL SPORTING NEWS OF THE DAY
Baseball enthusiasts throughout the coun
try trill be astonished to learn this morning
that the Indianapolis League club collapsed
last night Whatever may be the feelings
and opinions of the patrons of the game,
most certainly Manager Kiilllps, at a late
hour could scarcely believe his own eari
when told of the purport of the following
special telegram to the Dispatch from In
'The Indianapolis Base Ball Club has col
lapsed. Tbc directors bare been endeavoring
since tbe annual meeting of tbe League to make
arrangements with creditors to carry the in
debtedness until the close of the next season,
with tbe expectation that better patronage and
reduced expenses wonla enable them to pay off
a part of it. All had agreed to the extension
except two. who insisted on havingtheir money
and were threatening to Institute suit. In con
sequence, at a meetingheld late this afternoon,
the directors of the club determined to sur
render their League franchise.
"The indebtedness amounts to about 330,000,
and the assets, including the value of the fran
chise, will enable tbe directors to pay about 50
percent, of their claims. Players will lose
nothing, all of tbem having been paid their sal
aries in full at the close of the season. Tbe
creditors are 22 of tbe business men of Indian
apolis, who loaned the Club sums of from $300
"WHAT THE LEAGUE MUST TAT.
"The League, in accordance with tbe con
tract made at the time the club was transferred
from St. Louis to Indianapolis, must refund
tbe 13,000 that was deposited to secure the
franchise. The players can be sold or appor
tioned among other clubs as tbe League may
determine. The Indianapolis club has no fur
ther control over them.
'The club is worth more than when it was
purchased by Indianapolis, all of the best old
players developed at St. Louis having been re
tained, whilo two or three valuable men were
added, among them Paul Hines, for nhom
SiOOO was paid to Washington last year."
As stated above Manager Phillips was ex
tremely surprised when informed of the above
news last night. Regarding what city would
be secured to fill the vacancy ho only said:
"I haven't any idea. It may be that other
people in Indianapolis may come to tbe front
and take hold of tbe club."
Without doubt the news will cause some
thing like a sensation to-day among baseball
people. Whether Indianapolis baseball patriots
make efforts to re-establish tbe club or not,
there will in all probability a few complica
tions arise. It is safe to expect that the lovers
of the game at Indianapolis will make the most
strenuous efforts to retain or repurchase the
League franchise, which will mean the contin
uation ct a League club there.
IT 3IAY BE A SCHEME.
It may bo that the collapse is a move to avoid
or get entirely clear of deDts that evidently
cannot be paid for some time to come. How
ever, if that is the object, the '-League" mag
nates will have in some way to deal with the
The sensational feature, however, is that the
people interested in the Indianapolis club mean
exactly -what is stated in the above special dis
patch. If the latter is true, there wili really be
something to keep the baseball cranks talking
and figuring for a long time. If Indianapolis
drops out where will the League get another
cl'itb in its Western division? That's a question
that will be a puzzler. All the clubs that
seem to be at all worthy of notice
have made arrangements for next season. Xot
one can be secured without senous trouble all
round. Had the Hoosiers declared their inten
tions sooner matters could all have been made
just as smooth as if nothing had occurred. If
the worst comes to the worst it is possible to
have a six-club League, and in that case Wash
ington would nave to go undoubtedly. These
features and that of the distribution of the
players open out a very wide field of specula
tion too wide to tackle until it is for certain
known whether or not another party can be
organized to take hold of the franchise in the
the market at Indianapolis. It is likely that
the League will give assistance rather than see
any serious breakdown, and it is yet reasonable
to think that last night's action of the Indian
apolis club stockholders was more of a business
Etroke than anything else.
LOOKS LIKE TROUBLE.
The International League Likely to Have
Buffalo, January 2L Considerable interest
is manifested in next Tuesday's meeting of the
International League Baseball Association,
and an effort will be ma8e to increase the mem
bership from eight to ten clubs. There are
four applicants for the Hamilton club's vacan
cy. Manager Rowe. of the Buffalo club, says
Jie favors admitting Utica or some central city.
He is against a plan to make the League ten
clubs, adding Grand Rapids or Utica in place of
Hamilton and Jersey City and Newark, N. J.,
as the extra clubs. It would be unwieldy, he
thinks. It is also proposed the two Ne w Jersey
clubs buy the London, Ont, franchise and en
ter the Association. A lively time is expected,
forDetroit, Buffalo and Toledo will insist on a
more liberal salary limit, say $15,000, or none at
ail. which would be preferable to Buffalo. Mr.
"It should be changed. We can't even hire
13 men at $1,000 each, and we propose to carry
that number of men. You can't get very many
good players for less than $1,000 each, and sup
pose some of our players should break a leg or
hand or otherwise become disabled ? We can't
lay them off without pay, and under the salary
limit we could hire other players without vio
lating the law; but I don't know what will be
done about it."
Except another shortstop and catcher the
Buffalo club this season will be composed as
follows: Pitchers, F. T. Gilmorc, John J.
Fanning and Charles Uibbs, Jr.; catcher, E. L.
Tba er: shortstop and change pitcher, John
Reidy; first baseman, Michael Lehane: second
baseman, Wyinan Andrus: third baseman.John
M. Rainey; right fielder, Frank Grant; center
fielder, Clif Carroll; left fielder, Charles Ham
burg. ANOTHER PHASE OF IT.
The Boston People Say They Don't Want
Bostox. January 21. President Soden, of
the Boston club, has at last given his opinion
of the controversy over Deacon White. He
has heretofore refrained from expressing his
thoughts on the subject, but yesterday he said
"We don't want him: we have no use for him,
and shall not bother about him any more. We
took him from Detroit to consummate a deal,
as we wanted Richardson and Brouthcrs. Now
that we have those men we have no use for
White. I consider him an expensive man:
$1,000 for his release and $4,500 salary to a man
of his age is unreasonable; and, too, should we
buy him at that figure, next season he could
demand it right along." With regard to
, .rveuy s suAcriiunb mat lie is 10 oe maae captain
i of tbe team. President Soden said there wai
K plenty of time to 'select a captain, and Kelly
ft will be duly considered as to bis ability for the
V Tilnni. v shall tew m vtlr mi, ,. t. p
player for the position. Hardle Richardson
has loomed up as a candidate for tbe position,
and many think he would be a good man for
Wnnnop's WIM Thrent.
The latest amusing report in the pugilistic
world is that Jack Wannop is going to return
to England and challenge Jem Smith to a fight.
This aunouncement is amusing in many ways.
'Wannop is one of those big Britons who are
hxaore terrifying in looks than in actions. He
was a ridiculous failure here as a wrestler
"when he met Lewis. He made fame in England
. as a wrestler, but wasn't known there as a
pugilist; in fact, in this country he kept clear
:of anything like first-classmen. If he goes to
sEncland and carries out his threat that is. to
Jflqht Smith his friends on this side may ex-
ipect one of two results: he is either insane, or
be will never see America again.
Cnylor Points Oat Some Base Ball
O. P. Caylor, in a recent letter, points out in
a forcible manner, some of the inequalities
of the present base ball rules. His opinions
are now given-at length and it will be noticed
that The DisrATCH has been humbly arguing
in the same direction for some time past. Mr.
There is something radically wrong with the
present system of professional baseball. I
wish others could see it as I do. There is no
use denying the fact that dissatisfaction of no
small or Insignificant nature is slowly but sure
ly creeping into tne ranks of the best players
in the profession. This is bound to bear fruit
In time that wili not be healthful to the game.
I have touched upon the subject before, but
it cannot be too often brought to tbe attention
of the "magnates." Something must be done
or confusion will follow. The way things now
stand, the longer a playerstays with a club and
the more faithful he has been in bis work the
less he is rewarded; whereas a new man coming
in from another association reaps the reward
of his own figures. I have in mind three
players of a certain clnb whose releases could
not be purchased for 58,000. If they were to be
transferred to another club tbeir combined
salaries would be nearly ? 10,000 as salaries go.
Yet these men are asked and expected to play
for less than $6,500, while newcomers and ordi
nary outfielders far their inferior are receiving
at least from $300 to $600 a year more,
whereas they are not worth as much as
either of the plavers named by $500.
Take a club like the 'St. Louis club. There's
Boyle a boy who never got J2 000 a year in his
life. I suppose. He is worth three Cudworths
to the club, and two Fullers; yet I'm willing to
stake my reputation as a prophet that both
Fuller and Cudworth are to receive higher
salaries by 30 per cent than Bojle. There is
King, who practicallv won the club the cham
pionship last year. Suppose King belonged to
Louisville and St. Louis wanted. If Louisville
would release him St. Louis would willingly
agree to pav him $3,500. When Tony Mullane
was a member of the Toledo club and tbe Cin
cinnatis wanted him they paid him S2.000in
spot cash advance and agreed to pay him $3,000
more -during the season. Had he played he
would have gotten it Now he is lucky if he
Mv argument is not that Mullane was worth
$5,000 or that King is worth $3,500; nor -yet that
the three players I have mentioned are worth
$9,000. The point I make is against tbe in
equality of the salaries paid as to new players
and old and faithful men. It is hurting the re
serve rule and I think the time for classifica
tion must come. As it now stands, the longer
a player stays with a club the less he gains by
it, while the opposite should be the case.
And here comes in my old theory a general
classification. Let us make a commission on
classification. Let it be composed of Kick
Young, Wheeler C. Wikoff, Comiskey, Anson
and A. G. Mills. John B. Sage or George
Wright. Let these men meet next September
and divide up every player in the League or
Association into five clashes. Make tbe sal
aries $3,000, $2,500, 52,000, $1,500 and $1,000. 1 be
lieve theie is just that difference among play
ers. Let long service, good condition and good
conduct go with qualifications of play in mak
ing up this class.
Tbe players worthy to be classed "A" are not
more than two to a club in my opinion, and
some clubs have none of that calibre. When
you get down to about class C the players
might average four to a club. Merit and de
merit should have a large influence in putting
a player into his class and keeping him there.
LOCAL BALL GOSSIP.
Manager Phillips Is Confident Tunc Rowe
Will Piny Here.
The more that the White-Rowe matter is dis
cussed locally tbc more annoyed the local
cranks become. Very few people in this city
will believe anything else than what Rowe will
play here next season. Manager Phillips shares
this opinion and seems positive in his belief.
Last evening be said:
"I will make a good sized bet that Rowe plays
with us next season no matter what is now said
to the contrary. Of course I am weary about
this talk of Rowe and White. My goodness if
they don't want to play let them do the other
thing, but tbe talk about them is becoming
wearisome. I have, however, good reasons for
thinking that Rowe will play here."
During further comments Mr. Phillips said:
"If Rowe and White do not play next season
they need not expect to resume playing in the
League as first-class men, Depend upon it if
tbey drop out for a season they will not be
classed in Class A when they resume. There is
no reason why they should. Tney cannot cer
tainly expect to be classed with players who
have done first-class work while they, Rowe
and White, have been doing nothing. Al
together. I am convinced that tbey havo much
to lose and very little to gain by going contrary
to the League."
In talking abont matters regarding the local
club Manager Phillips said: "None of us can
give the least idea about how the team will be
made up. I cannot even say what tbe batteries
will be. We have five pitchers signed, and we
mean to keep them all. but we cannot now say
how we will pair the pitchers and catchers. If
our pitchers are worth anything and we keep
tbem and find we have too many we can sell one
or two in the fall and make money. Fields we
will certainly keep, and we cannot possibly tell
who will go between Maul and Coleman, or
whether either will go until the championship
is advanced a month or two. To make a long
story short, wo will dispense with none of our
old players until wc are satisfied that a better
man can take bis place. It will take consider
able playing to determine this, and that is the
plainest way I can state the matter'
Tbc manager has arranged to play his team
at Cincinnati on April 12, the date left open.
AN EXPERTS OPINION.
Jimmy Reed Talks Abont the Smith-Barker
Mr. James P. Reed, yesterday afternoon,
when met by the writer, was willing to talk
about tbe late international checker match.
I have seen the majority of games played by
Smith and Barker, and I have carefully looked
through them. Of course on a matter of this
kind I don't want to express an opinion, but
I'm no coward. When asked a straightfor
ward question I consider myself in duty bound
to give an answer. Well, in looking over
the play I think that Smith was far
short of what he was when be and I
played in England. Mark you.1 always thought
Barker would defeat him, but in analvzing the
games of Barker and Smith I find that Smith
had victories on the board and he allowed
them, or it may be hekjould prevent them from
being defeats if lie had not toward the finish of
Sames played somew hat weak. It may be that
c was nervous, but the play remains on record
and that protects my statements. Another in
teresting feature is that every weak opening as
far as Barker was concerned, the latter won;
that is. Smith had the best of the opening and
vice versa. Of course I wouldn't for the world
attempt to try and detract anything from1 tho
worth of Barker's victories: he has 'beaten a
good man. I do, however, say that the play of
the match can be improved upon."
LOTS OF FUN.
Tho Local Flyers Mnko Some Lively Races
Notwithstanding the rain and sleet which
fell at intervals yesterday, there wassome
good sleighing along the outer end of Forbes
street and other suburbs. A few of tbc local
"flyers" that now and again appear on our
local tracks at holiday races, were out, and
their enthusiastic drivers caused considerable
fun if not excitement Mr. Schrieber was out
with Tom D, Joe Glesenkamp had Black Frank
and Joe Hiedeger was out behind an attractive
little mare. There were many others, and as a
result an impromptu match was made for tbe
suppers among five well-known roadsters. As
a result J. B. Jones' Dick Turpin beat Lottie C,
Frank S, Pat K and Thomas Mellon. They
finished in the order named, the distance being
from Chas. Clark's residence to the bridge. To
say that there was fun is a mild way of stating
Thomas Archibold's b. g. Rainbow beat
Barney M, a new customer from Louisville,
Ky., in a one-heat raco for J 50. If the sleigh
ing gets better there will bo any amount of
good racing this week.
New Yore, January 2L Ex-Pitcher James
McCormick knew what ho was about when he
quit baseball playing and accepted chances in
other lines of business. Realizing how close
he was to tbe time when he would have been
rated as too old to play, he saved his dollars,
refused to sign a new contract and opened a
saloon in Paterson, N. J., where he has had a
profitable custom from the opening day. He
has recently branched out and now aspires to
become prominent as a turfman. He has laid
the foundation for a stable by purchasing three
horses, and they are winning dollars for him on
the GuttenburgandClifton tracks. The horses
are Silver Star, Belmont and Burton. One can
skate, another can swim and tbe third is great
on snow-shoes. Thus it will be seen Mr. Mc
Cormick has fixed himself for almost every
variety of Guttenbnrg weather.

OLD TIME RACING.
How the Turf Rules Rend Abont 200
Racing and racing rules 200 years ago were
hardly up to the modern standard. Here are
the quaint rules that governed tbe sport in
England at that time:
1. The horses are all to meet at
Sparton hilltop between 11 and 12
o'clock, where the riders are to be justly
weighed, the weight ten stone, down-weight, by
the weight (as they call them), "a ver-du-poyse,"
tbe horses are to be bridled, saddled and shod.
After the riders are justly weighed by such a
gentleman as shall be deemed to be a just judge
not only of the riders' weight but also to judge
impartially who comes first to the stoup; An
other gentleman must be appointed to the 12
score stoup, to judge what horse is rid out of
distance, which is a main business,
and a third must bo desired to see
them start fair. 2. The horses must be led
down from Sparton bill to the starting place,
and there must be three heats, the first heat to
Sparton hill, there to rub half an hour, and
then the judge is to give them warning to get
up and start; but if in that half hour they re
lieve their horses with anything but f aire water,
or if they ride out of distance or riders want
weight they must lose the cup; only there is al
lowed two pounds for wasting. Tbe second
beat is to end where they begin last, and two
gentlemen must be desired to seo not only who
comes first to tho stoup but at the 12-score
stoup who rides out of distance and who not;
and 'twere well to have a flag at the ending
stoup of each heat to bo let down as soon as
the first horse is pest the stoup for the judges'
casyer discerning who rides within distance and
who not; the riders must be weighed everybeat,
the relief is to be only water, the rub
but half an hour, and then the
judge is to bid them mount, 3. There being
three heats he that wins the most beats wins
the cup, so he rides within distance, not other
wise, but that horse which is foremost the last
heat; this will make tbem fide for it The
stakes are 10 shillings a horse, and to be put
into tbe hands of the judges, who are to de
liver them to the second horse. 4. He that
wins the cup saves bis own stakes: tbe second
horse shall have all the rest. 5. It is to be con
sidered that if any rider whip another rider's
horse on the face or pull back another's bjjdle
he shall lose the cup. 6. No bystander must
nue in witn tne norses; to lace, stop or turn
them over, or any other way to hinder them.
but must ride aloof from tbem.
If any such
fault is committed I must implore the gentry
to help me in the legal punishing of the offend
The Greek and the Jap Draw Blood In Their
Sceanton', January 2L One thousand peo
ple in the Turner Hall witnessed the wrestling
match between Matsada Sorakltchi (The Jap),
and Antonio Pierree (The Greek). The match
was catch-as-catch-can. The first bout was won
by the Jap after 12 minutes and a terrible
struggle. In the second bout the wrestlers
became desperate, and violated the rules by
striking at each other. There was intense ex
citement at this time, and a riot was feared and
almost precipitated when it was seen that the
Greek strangled the Japuntil blood flowed from
his nostrils. Tho crowd roared "Foul."
A cessation of hostilities followed which
gave the Jap, who was rapidly weakening,
time to recover, and when the battle was re
newed he went at the Greek with vigor, but the
latter's strength finallv forced the Jap to
yield to leg and neck lock. This bout lasted 47
minutes. The Jap, agile heretofore, now ap
peared to lose strength, and the big Greek
twisted and turned him until be got a leg lock,
and the Jap went down, thus losing the bout
Tired of Saddle Pacers.
Al Mann, tbe trainer of tbe local pacer Jew-
ett last season, talked about tbe trotting and
pacing prospects for the year yesterday. He
said that tbe predictions already made about
the success or profit of pacing races to saddle
were true. In bis opinion the Grand Circuit
will not try them again. He thinks Kinsman
a good horse. Of course he, Mann, will prob
ably not drive Jewett next year, and it is not
deflnitely.known who will bold the reins over
Mr. Wyman's champion or Jewett either.
A Worthy Benefit.

with singing and clog dancing.

Conflicting Interests in the Pacific
May Provoke a Conflict.
A RECRUITIKG BILL IS PASSED
Which Will Increase the French Army to
Three Million Men.
THE 0THEE SIDE OP THE SAMOA STORY.
A German Account Claims That No American Citizens
Were Fired Upon There.
Pabis, January 21. In the Chamber of
Deputies to-day Bishop Freppel asked what
measures the Government was taking to
protect the position of France in the Pacific,
especially with regard to "Easter Island and
the Cook group. Easter Island, he said
was needed as a port of call for ships plying
between Panama and Australia, yet it was
reported that the Government had ceded
the island to Chili. Further, although the
Tongway group belonged to Tahiti, En
gland had annexed two of those islands.
Did the Government regard this annexation
as final, and what action was intended in
view of the recent English annexations in
the Cook group?
Admiral Krantz, Minister of Marine, re
plies that the admirals of the navy had
been consulted on the subject and all had
agreed that it was useless to retain Easter
Island. The island had no harbor and its
population was decreasing. K would have
been necessary to place a garrison on the
island, as otherwise the stores of coal de
posited there for the use of the French
ships would have served the enemy in time
of war. As for the Cook Islands they had
never belonged to France. English mis-
f sionaries who had settled this had urged the
natives to assert their independence.
Bishop Freppel maintained the impor
tance of Easter Island. Besides the annex
ation of the Tougways, he said, the British
had neglected no opportunity to deal a blow
at French influence in Oceania. The Gov
ernment was either ill-informed or wanting
in firmness. The British had annexed the
Cook Islands because the excellent harbor
there enabled them to avoid calling at
French ports. France had abandoned
Egypt and the New Hebrides, and the colo
nial administration was again showing neg
ligence and incapacity. .
The Minister of Marine responding, main
tained his ground, adding that France must
claim the whole Tahiti group, but that, if
they were not surrendered, there would be
no reason for declaring war against Great
Britain, as the national honor was in no
The Chamber of Deputies to-day finally
discussed the recruiting bill. The members
of the Bight protested that the measure
would aggravate the burdens of the coun
try. The law of 172 sufficed for the needs
of the nation. M. De Freycinet, Minister
of "War, replied that the bill was not intro
duced to meet special circumstances. It
was a law for national defense. France was
compelled to place 3,000,000 of men in line
of battle to defend her frontiers. The whole

ENGLAND IS WITH US.
Her Government Takes the American View
of tbe Snmonn Question.
' Loudon, January 21. It is stated on
trustworthy authority that the British Gov
ernment has decided to uphold the treaty
by the terms of which European powers are
precluded from obtaining or attempting to
obtain dominion in Samoa. The Gov
ernment has been fully informed of
and shares in the United States Govern
ment's views on the subject. It is agreed
that the action of the German agents in
Samoa is opposed to the letter
and spirit of the treaty; that
it violates diplomatic etiquette and
endangers the good relations so necessary
for Europeans to preserve when dealing
with semi-barbarous nations. Dispatches
to this effect have been sent to Berlin.
Lord Salisbury's latest news from Apia

THE ARREST OP SIIEEHT.
A General Condemnation of the Arbitrary
Coarse of the Government.
London, January 22. The Daily jVew:s
calls the arrest of Mr. Sheehy Mr. Balfour's
revenge for the Conservative defeat in
Govan, where Mr. Sheehy spoke in support
of Mr. "Wilson, the successful candidate.
Mr. Balfour, the Xetos says, feared to arrest
Mr. Sheehy then because he thought such
an act would endanger Sir John
Pender's chances. The Earl of Aber
deen, in a speech al Partick, Scot
land, condemned the arrest as an anomaly,
the monstrosity of which would make Scot
land realize the meaning of coercion.
An immense crowd gathered at the rail
way station to witness Mr. Sheehy's de
Earture. The people were disappointed,
owever, as the police took Mr. Sheehy to
Greenock by boat. Intense excitement pre
vailed amonglhe crowd and an impromptu
indignation meeting was held. The speak
ers roundly denounced the action of the
authorities in arresting Mr. Sheehy.

Loss of Life In a Hurricane Off" New En
Bland A Tug and Two Barses Sink
and Several Lives Are Lost
Heroic Work of the
LIlo Savers. ,
Boston, January 21. -Captain Blair, of
the tug Morse, started from Boston last Sat
urday for Vineyard Haven. She was en
route to Portland with two barges. At 11
r. M. Sunday, when the tug Morse was off
Bace Point, she encountered a terrific hurri
cane with a heavy snowstorm, and her
decks were swept by the high sea. At 230
this morning she heard a whistle which she
took to be from Boston Light, and soon after
struck on Harding's Ledge. "When the tug
went ashore the barges Josephine and Bun
yan, which were in tow, dragged heavily,
and soon the ropes parted.
When the Morse struck on Harding's
Ledge she began to leak and filled rapidly,
compelling the crew of 18 to take to the
rigging. The short boat was launched and
a fireman named Herman Carleton, a native
oi .Norway, volunteered to go ashore tor
help, but a very heavy sea struck the boat
and threw it 15 feet in the air, drowning
Carleton before he could be reached. At 1
o'clock this morning the Hull Life Saving
crew sighted the tug with the crew in the
rigging, and shot a life line on board. It
was made fast to the starboard and all the
men on board were rescued. During the
storm all the houses were washed from the
deck of the Morse. The tug and both
barge? will be a total loss.
The barge Bunyan, with her crew of four
men, went down almost immediately after
striking. All of the crew were lost, so far
as is known, except Captain Lund. The
Josephine, after striking on Harding's
Ledge, was lifted off by the sea and driven
with great rapidity toward the shore. Pass
ing over Bugle Isle bar, she was driven with
tremendous force against the breakwater on
the southeast side of Point Allerton Hill,
and in a very few moments was dashed en
tirely into pieces on the great ledges that
line the coast at this point.
Two of her crew of four men, Peter Han
son Berpen, steward, and Charles Birches
con, both of Norway, were lost. The capt
ain, John Hohn, of Brooklyn, and the mate,
Harry Anderson, of Sweden, were thrown
into the sea when the vessel stranded, and
both succeeded in grasping pieces
of floating wreckage, on which they were
thrown by the waves high up upon the
beach. Neither had the least suspicion that
the other had been saved. The Captain,
seeing a cottage near by, went to it, and,
finding it unoccupied, forced an entrance
and went to'sleep. Late in the forenoon he
was discovered and cared for.
The mate wandered about the shore until
daylight and then, exhausted, fell down
upon the beach. Soon after sunrise he was
seen by a fisherman named Sylvester who
took him to his house and furnished him
with food and dry clothing. To this same
fisherman's place the Captain was also taken
when found. The rescue of the 17 men
from the Morse makes a total of 45 lives
saved thus far this winter by the heroes of

Senator Blair Says tho Republican Party
Shonld Adopt the Idea.
Washington, January 21. The open
ing session of the twenty-first annual con
vention of 'the National Woman Suffrage
Association was held in the Con
gregational Church to-day, Miss Susan
B. Anthony presiding, and making a short
address. Miss Anthony was followed by
Mr. Eiddle and Senator Blair. The
latter referred in words of high com
mendation to the recent work at
the polls of the women in Boston
in "rescuing our public schools," and
thought that the Kepublican party should
make itself the champion of this great move
ment and should make universal suffrage
an important plank in its platform. He
urged the promoters of the movement to de
mand suffrage as a right, and predicted for
them ultimate success.
A'resolution was read and adopted pro
viding for a committee to memorialize
Congress to the end that women might be
recognized and allowed to participate in the
ceremonies of the coming centennial
celebrations. At the evening ses
sion Laura M. Johns, President of
the Kansas Association, spoke upon
"Municipal Woman Suffrage in Kansas."
She emphatically denied the truth of pub
lished reports of disorderly scenes at the
polling places in cities of Kansas, and de
clared that the practical test of municipal
suffrage in that State has proved eminently
satisfactory to its friends.
BEATB LADY BICYCLISTS
Ride Down a Tobocgnn Chnto at tho Roto

tSPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCII.
Hew York, January 21. Miss Nettie
Mulford, of Newark, and Mrs. J. Mulford,
of Orange Valley, are two of the most in
trepid female riders of the bicycle
in New Jersey. They both ride two
wheeled machines of the safety type,
with low wheels and a backbone so formed
that they do not have to bestride it. Thev
know every road in Essex county, and take
rides almost daily unaccompanied by gentle
men. Recently thev coasted side by side
down Eagle Rock hill, the scene of many
bicycle hill-climbing contests. No women
ever coasted down this hill even on tricycles.
They made the trip without accident,, and
spurred on by their success they concluded
to essay a more difficult feat.
On Friday last they trundled their ma
chines to the top of the Essex county tobog
gan chutes on the side of the Orange Moun
tain, and then sped away down the trough
at the rate of a mile a minute. It was
a dangerous experiment, for had any
thing occurred to their wheels
they would have been thrown over the side
of the chute and killed. They did not use
brakes or pedals, in the' descent, and were
so delighted with the new experience that
they repeated it without accident There
was no ice on the slide when they made the
experiment. After the second run a crowd
began to gather, and this deterred them
from continuing the sport.

OPPOSED TO THE PE0JECT.
Mrs. Cleveland's Picture Not to Ornament
tho White Ilonse.
ISPZCIAL TELEQUAH TO THE DISPATCH.
"Washington, January 21. The Presi
dent and Mrs. Cleveland have summarily
vetoed the project for a popular subscrip
tion to buy a portrait of Mrs. Cleveland for
the White House, which was recently start
ed here. The scheme had its origin at an
informal gathering of two or three members
of the Women's National Press Association
the day after New Year's. These ladies
were callers at Mrs. Whitney's reception,
and the conversation turning on NewYear's
Day, its perfection, the reception at the
White House, and Mrs. Cleveland's toi
lettes, one of the Cabinet ladies remarked:
i"Yes, and Mrs.Cleveland's portrait ousht to
Jbe painted for the White House in that su
perb creation Worth designed for her."
Every lady present responded enthusias
tically to this suggestion, and some one in
quired who would see that the public had
an opportunity to respond to this tribute to
Mrs. Cleveland. The members of the Press
Association said they would make the sug
gestion,and from its appearance in the Star,
it went the rounds of the press, and soon ar
tists from different paits of the country be
gan to send inquiries concerning the move
ment, offers ot subscription came, letters
from well-known people were received, and
Mrs. M. D. Lincoln, embarrassed by the
situation, addressed a letter to Mrs. Cleve
land, before taking active measures in the
affair, with an inquiry if she would permit'
sittings for her portrait if the movement
progressed. President Cleveland's response
will no doubt be a disappointment to a host
of Mrs. Cleveland's admirers.
Q Executive Mansion, 1
Washington, D. C, y
January 18, 1889. I
Mrs. M. D. Lincoln:
Dear Madam ReSDondine for Mrs. Cleve
land and myself to your note in relation to
procuring her portrait for the White Ilonse,
and fully appreciating the kindness intended, X
have to say that both of us are so opposed to
the project that you could not show us greater
consideration in this matter than by an entire
abandonment of the scheme.
Yours very truly,
The scheme has therefore been abandoned.
EQUALIZING THE TARIFF.
A Move to Itfnke Everything Imported Pay
47 1-2 Per Cent Duty.
Washington, January 21. In the
House to-day Mr. Martin, of Texas, offered
for reference a resolution calling on the
Committee on Ways and Means to report
without delay a bill ' repealing all tariff
legislation, and at the same time to report
a bill imposing a taritl of 42yi
per ' cent ad valorem on all
foreign imports into the United States,
thus taxing all capital invested in foreign
merchandise alike, and at the same time
affording the same protection to the raw wool
and hides of Texas in the Boston market
which is given to the manufacturers of boots
and shoes in Massachusetts, and protecting
labor in all parts of the Union alike, aid
allowing every American to know the tax
that he pays and the protection which the
Government of equal and exact justice to
all men affords to every inhabitant alike.
Mr. J. D. Taylor, of Ohio, introduced for
reference a preamble and joint resolution
reciting that arrangements have been made
to hold the inaugural ball in one of the
buildings of the United States, and that the
newspapers announce that refreshments are
to be furnished on this occasion in some of
the rooms of the building, and directing the
Government officials in charge of any build
ing which may be used not to permit wine,
beer, ale or other intoxicating liquors to be
sold or served to any person on the occasion
of the ball.
On motion of Mr. Montgomery, of Ken
tucky (acting under instructions from the
Committee on PostofSces and Postroads),
the rules were suspended and a bill was
passed to increase the maximum amount of
international money orders from $50 to $100.
HOW QUAY. WILL Y0TE.
Only Ono Man Can Answer the Conundrum
nnd lie Wen't Talk.
ISPECIAI. TELIGRA1I TO TUB DISPATCH.!
Washington, January 27. Senator
Quay maintains his reputation for taci
turnity, even in such a matter as his vote on
the tariff bill, and not even those Senators
.who are closest to him unless it be Cam
eron can get him to say how he will vote on
the bill. It can be stated on good grounds,
however, that at no time has he had the
least intention of voting against the bill.
He wanted to put himself ou record against
the sugar bounty clause because it was an
innovation which seemed opposed to the
principle of protection as established and
maintained by the Republican party, but it
is not thought that his objections are so
strong as to lead him to oppose the entire
bill. The .Finance Committee feels well
I assured of that. He may make a personal
explanation when he reports bis vote, but
there is probably not one Senator who be
lieves he will vote no.
The final vote may not be reached before
Wednesday, and as soon after that as prac
ticable the Senator will start for Florida, to
remain until near the close of Congress.

THERE is no class of persons who should pay more attention to
the quality of the soap used upon their clothing than salaried
men or persons of limited income. Three dollars per year saved in
the cost of soap is more than likely to result in fifty dollars' worth
of damage to the articles it is used upon. Professor Cornwall, of
Princeton College, says, "The Ivory Soap is of great purity and
"more than average cleansing power." A word to' the wise isr
A WORD OF, WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory';"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.

Notwithstanding the Nomination.
St. Paul, January 21. The Legislativo
Investigation Committee to look into the
stories of bribery in connection with
the Senatorial caucus last week has
been in session all afternoon and away late
into the night. A great many persons have
been examined, but there are no reliable re
ports of what occurred, the committee meet
ing being strictly a secret one. The
bribery charges are made, not alona
against Washburn, but also against
Sabin. All sorts of sensational stories have
been current, and it is claimed and pretty
generally believed that it is a scheme to
bring abont a bolt of the caucus nomina
tion. The Democrats have decided on a
complimentary vote for Senator Dnrant,
who is a warm personal friend of Senator
It is their hope that a deadlock will per
mit them to decide the nomination, as they
did when D. M. Sabin was. first made Sen
ator. As to actual facts in the bribery in
vestigation, the report of the committee
must be awaited for any reliable particulars.
Senator Sabin is here, but apparently
keeps away from the committee, but the .
committee's chosen legal advisor, W. M.Er
win, is a warm supporter of Senator Sabin,
while the lawyer whom the Washburn
leaders have chosen to look after their in
