The Nonpariel Arranges to Hake s Trip
KEWS ABOUT THE AUSTEALIAN TEAMS
It is always interesting to sporting people
to know the inside history of things so far
as sporting events or dealings are concerned
Jack Dempsey, the "konpariel," arrived in
the city yesterday, and -without doubt told
some of his friends a few facts that were not
only interesting, but very instructive. Out
side of Dempsey's gameness as a pugilist his
most remarkable characteristic is his
frankness. He is certainly in a
position which enables him to talk
truthfully about anybody or anything
in bis particular line of business, that is, as far
as pugilism is concerned. Beside tbis, a man
like Dempsey would not under any circum
stances make public a fact or circumstance
that would be injurious even to an enemy if he
thought the fact could successfully be con
cealed. yesterday Dempsey talked frankly to a few
friends about Sullivan and the late charges of
drunkenness urged against that great and
previous star of the fistic arena. Dempsey
FACTS STATED BV DEMPSET.
"Now, the facts of the case are these: Sulli
van and h is friends were arranging for a bene
fit in Boston. The benefit, of course, was
entirely for John. The board of gentlemen
who bad the power to grant the license con
sisted, as far as I can understand, of 12 persons.
At least Jim Watery told me so. Well, 11
of these were disposed to favor a license for
Sullivan, but llr. Rogers, the President, ob
jected because there had been so much trouble
with Sullivan in Boston; not only with Sulli
van, he said, but with other prominent boxing
affairs. As a result the license was refused, so
Wakely says, and Sullivan was informed of the
decision. He got on his mettle, and really did
consume on short notice a few bottles of wine
as a result of the great disappointment in his
own city, and just at a time when he was recov
ering from severe and costly 'sicKness. His
lriends beard of his freak and got hold of him,
and he was taken away to privacy and sobriety
betore much harm was done. Now, in this
matter Sullivan only acted in a way that prob
ably anybody of a sensitive feeling would. Bos
ton has no reason to ignore Sullivan. He has
made thousands of dollars for that city."
During further conversation it was learned
that Charlie Johnson, who is putting ud the
money for Sullivan against Kilrain. is almost
tired of John L. At least it can be now stated
with a certainty that he stated to Dempsey
that he won't risk Sullivan any longer.
SULLIVAN IS UXCEKTAI-.
The latter is too uncertain, morally speak
ing, for any man to put up 55,000 or 510,000 for.
Mr. Johnson made this statement in good faith,
and added that Sullivan is a very great risk
for any man to invest money on.
The facts, and they are facts, entirely bear
out w hat has been argued in these columns
from time to time. It may have grated harshly
on the feelings of Sullivan's many admirers to
read that he was becoming more of a wreck
than ever. Of course, Sullivan's social habits
is one thing, and his nugilistic abilities is an
other. But Sullivan's prospects in a pme ring
can only be judged by the social life that he
leads. A man who will lose Sis moral rectitude
because of a social disappointment has not, as
a rule, that cumbativeness in him that goes to
make up a first-class ring fighter. If a social
disappointment or a cross of expectation
causes a man to lose his tem
per, and any intelligence that he may
have, what will a terrific crack under the jaw
cause him to do? This is a question for men of
the Sullivan kind to consider. It is remark
able to note that every good exponent of prize
ring science has been a patient man. Even the
loss of teeth, or an eye has not caused game
men to become hotheaded and act like fools.
It is not too much to say now that Sullivan's
nature in social life is a reflex of Sullivan in
the ring, if he cannot have things all his own
way he loses his reason so far that he becomes
a toy in the hands of more reasonable and more
patient people. It seems more likely than ever
that Sullivan and Kilrain will not meet in
WILL GO TO 'FRISCO.
Jack Dempsey Engnged to Go to the For
It is sow certain that Jack Dempsey will go
to San Francisco. It was stated on good
authority last evening that he had made ar
rangements to go to the far West with a varie
ty show. Probably Denny Costigan will be his
Dempsey's trip West, however. Is significant,
because it means that he is snre to have a con
test with somebody at San Francisco. The
likelihood is that arrangements for a battle be
tween him and McCaffrey will be consummated
shortly. At any rate, from now on 'Frisco will
ue wen stocked with pugilists, real and alleged,
of all weights.
Grace's Great Record.
"W. G. Grace, who was born July IS, 181S, near
Bristol, England, is the champion batsman, and
has been the wonder of the cricket world from
1861 to 1SSS, inclusive, and during the 25 seasons
he has played in first-class matches 8S0 com
pleted innings, and scored 31,070 runs, aver
aging nearly 40 runs each inning. He has made
100 runs and upward no fewer than 139 times,
being not out in 25 of these innings. His high
est scores are 400, 311, 318, 26S, 261, 259, 221, 221,
217, 215. 215, 210, 210, 197. 198, 192, 1S9, 183, 182. 1SL
IbO. 179. 178, 177, 177, 174, 173, 172, 172, 170 and 170.
His 400 not out was made against 22 in the field,
and included 4 sixes. 21 fours, 6 threes, 8 twos
and 158 singles, the last item proving that the
bowling was not so very weak. This score has
only been exceeded fonr times, and then in
minor matches with only 11 in the held. He
made his 314 for the Marylebone club against
Kent at Canterbury, England, in August, 1870,
it being the highest individual score ever made
in a first-class match. He is the only batsman
of modern days who has made two separate
hundreds In a first-class match, but he has per
formed this exceptional feat three times dur
ing his career. The first occasion was at Can
terbury in 1868, when he scored for the South
of the Thames against the North 130 and not
out 102; the second was at Clifton in August,
1887, when, for Gloucestershire against Kent,
he maue 101 and not ont 103, and the third was
at Clifton in August 188S. when, for Gloucester
shire against Yorkshire, he scored 148 and 153.

CAPTAIN BROWN'S STABLE.
A Full Account of the Pittsburcer's Racers
Mobile, January as. The winter here has
been a very open one so far; mild, with only
occasional rains a great contrast to a year
since, when rain was almost a daily occurrence.
As a consequence, the race horses wintering
here have had hardly a day when they could not
gallop on the tracks, but their trainers are
wisely going slow with them, having in mind
the long racing season yet to come.
At the Bascombe race course J. W. Rogers
has in charge Captain Sam Brown's formidable
string of 23 horses, all in robust health and
seemingly good condition. They have only
been in work a week, as Rogers says ho Is not
going to fine them down too early this year,
preferring to start North In April next with
his horses rather on the big side. His lot com
prises three 4-year-olds, 123-year-olds, and eight
2- ear-olds, all stabled within a hundred yards
of the race course. The full list of Captain
Brown's horses is appended:

broken down and Stuyvesant under grave sus
picionall three being at the "Wildwood farm,
near Louisville, Ky. Captain Brown and Rog
ers will have only a small division of older
horses this year. Torchlight, who has not run
since 1SS7, looked a grand horse as I saw him
taking light exercise this morning. Standing
fully 16 hands high and finished in proportion,
he is sound enough except for a splint which
Rogers hopes to reduce. Tho trouble that re
tired him so early as a 2-year-old was a bad
quarter Crack, but this is now all right. Torch
light is entered in the Suburban and other
great races, and with luck will bo beard from.
The 3-year-olds in this stable are a good lot,
as racegoers in the North will find out before
the season is far under way. Reporter, who
wound up last year so brilliantly at Ivy City, is
now a most racy looking fellow, and he has
grown and filled out to a percentile degree.
The 2-year-olds, while more or less of an un
known quantity, as aro all of this age at this
time of the year, are a well bred and good look
How Baseball Games Wero Described on
the Other Side.
rSPECIAI. TXLEGKAH TO THE DtSFATCn.l
New York, January 25. Walter Spalding
was found in his Broadway office to-day, sur
rounded by great piles of newspaper clippings,
which he had just received from Australia.
Letters were also received from A. G. Spald
ing, in which he said that the party would ar
rive in this city on or about April 10. Tney
would be in Egypt early in February, and in
Italy during the latter part of February. Wal
ter Spalding cabled that the League cham
pionship season wonld begin about April 21.
For this reason the trip will be hurried
through. It was at first Intended that the
Sarty would not get back until May, bu this
as been changed.
The descriptions published in the Australian
papers were unique in their way. The writers
in some respects copied the American style to
some extent, but in the main they laid them
selves out in comparing the game to cricket
and football. The extracts which Mr. Spald
ing received were from Sydney and Mel
bourne papers, and in each case the reports of
the games, including a picture of the ball
field, were from one to seven columns. The de
scription of how baseball was played was plain
enough, but the games were somewhat mixed.
Still, the reporters out there did well.
The way in which the men caught and hit
the ball surprised the people out there. One
paper gives a column description of how to hit
a ball with a round bat without cuttintr the
ball to one's feet or popping it in the'air.
FOUGHT TO A FINISH.
McCarthy Wins the Bantam Championship
in Jnst 18 minutes.
New York, January 25. The great battle
between Harry Walton, of Philadelphia, and
Cal McCarthy, of Jersey City, to decide the
American championshfp in the bantam weight
class, took place at Gloucester, N. J to-night.
Seventy-five of the best known sports from
New York and,H) from Philadelphia were at
the ring side, which was pitched in the attic of
a vacant mansion on tbe outskirts of the city
of Gloucester. The conditions of the contest
called for a fight to a finish according to Mar
qulsof Queensberry rules, for the bantam
weight championship of America and a purse
Tickets sold for $10 each and every man pres
sent had one. McCarthy fought a clever battle,
and knocked Walton out in the fifth round.
The knock out was one of the strangest ever
witnessed. Walton came forward, and at once
received a heavy blow on the left eve. He
staggered and after receiving several more
stinging punches on the bead he oecame very
weak. McCarthy went at him with both hands
and caught him on the law.
Walton made a
dive and rolled on tbe floor for

New York. January 25. Edward H. Garri
son, or "Snapper'' Garrison, the jockey, yester
day signed with Mr. August Belmont, and will
ride for the latter in the coming racing season.
It has been reported very frequently of late
that Garrison would not again enter into an
agreement ith a particular stable to rido f or
it exclusively, as be felt that more moneymlgbt
be made by taking the mounts offered him on
the tracks he visited. If such was his deter
mination at any time he has reconsidered it,
which Beems to be good judgment, as his salary
with Mr. Belmont will be 512,090 for the year.
The 'Snapper's" good luck is proverbial. He
can ride, and that well, and it was in part due
to his skill that tbe stable of Mr. J. B. Haggin
last year heads the winning list, there being to
its credit the princelv sum of $136,019, of which
Firenziwon nearly S3G.OO0, Garrison being her
Pilot in all her 22 races. Garrison received
,10,000 from Mr. Haggin last season.

staff?. Tbe party will sail down the bay and meet tho

weather should be propitious an exhibitiou
game will be played at the Polo Ground. At
all events a banquet will be tendered the teams
by the New York club at Delmonico's.
Not Eager for Hecker.
Baltimore, January 25. The Baltimore
Baseball Club has been asked to make an
offer for Louisville's battery Hecker and
Cook or else waive claim to them. Manager
Davidson suggests that he would trade them
for first basemau Tucker and a cash bonus, but
tbe Baltimore management would not.Ilsten to
any proposition involving Tucker's transfer,
and having no nse for Hecker and Cook will
probably relinquish all claim on them.

BOTH QUAINT AND ORIGINAL SAYINGS
It was for the Land of the Thistle to pro
duce one of the lew great poets that have
ever trod this "vale of tears;" and even
now wherever the English language is
spoken and wherever a human heart beats,
praises will be sung of Bobbie Burns, the
Bard of bonnie Scotland. A poet of the
people, loving them, and in turn adored by
his countrymen; he had his weaknesses, it
is true, but, "A man's a mah for a' that."
The one hundred and thirtieth anniver
sary of the birth of Scotland's favorite poet
was celebrated last evening at the Seventh

pipe was "Haggis, a la Ilobert Burns."
the dish was brought into the banquet
hall with the greatest ceremony. Mr. Ar
thur Kirk, who made an address to the
Haggis, entered the room, followed by a
Highland piper. The great Haggis was
carried by a colored servant who bore it
aloft as he marched abont the room. Mr.
Kirk then made his address, and the haggis
was served to the expectant guests. It is a
mysterious dish, and tasted as one would
imagine oatmeal boiled in oil would taste.
At the conclusion of the supper the enter
tainment for the evening commenced. The
programme was a long one, but it was at
tractive enough to keep the listeners until
Mr. Alexander Leggate, President of the
"Waverly Association, made a rich address,
replete with praise for the hero of the even
ing and for the land for which Burns sent
his warmest wish to heaven.
The programme, which was opened with
an overture, "Guy Mannering," by the or
chestra, was continued thus:
Following the President's address a quartet,
composed of tbe Misses Corpy and Messrs.
Thompson and Hardie, sang "There was a 'Lad
was born in Kyle." They were enthusiasti
cally recalled. Mr. James McClelland sang a
solo. Miss Sarah C. Kirk sang "Caller Her
rAVOEITK SCOTCH MELODY.
Mr. David Thompson rendered" "Tak Yer
Auld Cloak Aboot Ye." Miss Elizabeth Corey,
one of Pittsburg's sweetest singers, sang "An'
Ye Shall Walk in Silk Attire" in a pleasing
way. Rev. William J. Reid, D. D., mado one
of his characteristic pleasing addresses in
which he eulogized the great poet.
Sentiments were read from the Burns Associ
ation of Philadelphia, and tbe Caledonian So
ciety, of Allegheny, during an interval
rin the" programme. Mr. William Hardie
sang the solo, "Scots A ha Hae."
and won much applause. Tbe violin solo by
Mr. John Gernert, "Old Folks at Home," was
warmly welcomed. Mr. Peter Dick read the
Pretty Scotch selection, "Cuddle Doon." Miss
Marguerite Wilson sang "The Lass o' Lowrie,"
in a manner which won a host of admirers for
tho pleasant little lady. "When the Kye
Come Hame" was sang by Mr. David M. Kirk.
Rev. C. V. Wilson then made an address, and
Miss Corey and Mr. David S. Thompson sang
solos. The evening's festivities closed with the
audience singing "Auld Lang Syne."
There was on exhibition during the even
ing a miniature fac simile of a monument
which is to be erected by the Scotch resi
dents of this city in honor of the memory of
Burns. It is a representation oi "The
Cotter's Saturday night," and if erected
will be a beautiful adornment for the parks
THE PIBROCH IS ALLEGHENY.
Worthy Scots Blow Sweet Notes In Honor
The Burns Society of Allegheny also cel
ebrated the one hundred and thirtieth anni
versary of that poet's birth last evening by
an entertainment, supper and ball at the
Manchester Turner Hall. A well-selected
programme of a musical and literary nature
was rendered to an audience of abont 500.
The ushers were Harry Anderson, William
Hamilton, James Black and H. Thompson,
and the supper, consisting of three tables,
was served by Hay.
The Henderson Band inrnished the music
for the dancing. Among the renditions
worthy of note were "Pibroch Solos," by
James urqunart; Anniversary song, by
Mrs. Henderson, accompanied by "W.
Steiner; "Tarn O' Slianter," by J. Ogilvic;
"The Murmur of a Shell," by Miss T.
Mackintosh; several dnetsby the"3IcNaugh
tou brothers; recitations by Miss Sheeran
and song by Mr. M. McAvoy.
The entire affair was thoroughly Scotch in
its character, and is the third which has
been given by the society.
Financially, it was quite successful, as
the proceeds will probably amount to sev
eral" hundred dollars. Altogether it does
credit to the society which certainly deserves
its success, as it has worked hard.
EIDDLED WITH BULLETS.
A Colored Man Shot Six Times and Dies
rSFZCIJLL TKLEOEAM TO TOS DISPXTCH.l
Stettbenville, O., January 25. This
forenoon, at 10 o'clock, a colored man named
Archie Twiggs, better known as Archie
Hack, of Eichmond, Va., got into an alter
cation with James Eitson, white, who shot
him six times with a 32-caliber revolver,
two of the shots being fatal. The first shot
took effect just below the left eye, passing
through the cheek hone, entering the head,
and another entered at the inside corner of
the left eye. The other four shots were in
his legs and arms.
The shooting occurred in a saloon and
boarding house, run by "William Walker,
colored, located on Korth Third street. The
men had been drinking in Joseph Brink
man's place, on Market street, during the
night, and left the place for "Walker's,
where Ritson missed $50, which he claimed
Twiggi had taken, and the lie was ex
changed. Different stories are told in re
gard to it, Eitson claiming that Twiggs
pulled his revolver first and he wrenched it
from his hand, while others stae that
Twiggs went upstairs and got the revolver
and handed it to Eitson. However, Eitson
emptied both revolvers of their contents.
All, end and dress lengths will be closed
out during the mornings at about half origi
nal prices: Hcaus & Hacke.

A GOOD SUGGESTION.
ECONOMY, as wise folks say, What course should people then pursue ?
Is wealth pronounced another way, In short, the only thing to do.
So while "hard times" the people cry. Though rich in bonds, or worldly poor.
The Toilet Soaps they should not buy. The " Ivory Soap" they should procure.
Let all who buy such Soaps take care
To weigh the cake exact and fair,
And find they pay in figures round
A dollar, more or less per pound.
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.
