A Few Words About the Wrestlers
and Their Hippodromes
WEIGHTS POE THE BIG HANDICAPS.
Opinions About Mitchell, Bmitli and the
GESEEAI SP0RT1XG SEWS OF THE DAI
Despite all the glory that seemed to have
fallen to the lot of President Spalding and
his two teams, the indications are that there
is trouble ahead of them. If all declara
tions are correct Mr. Spalding is to be re
minded of the fact that he may be able to
propose, but there are other magnates who
claim to hare a right to dispose. Whatever
the result may be there lias been plenty oi
noise re-ardine the matter during the week,
and the bulk of the noise has been against
Spalding & Co. The matter at present
Stands like this: Sir. Spalding proposes
to have his teams play a series
of ball games when they return to this country (
In April, ilany of the players are reserved by
other clubs ana the latter are Inclined to have
their plajers on April L, or as soon after it as
the arrive in this country. This is principally
tho condition of things at present, and I only
remind readers of the fart so that anj dicus
Blon or the matter may be tho easier con
ducted. There never was one side of a ques
tion except there was another at least, and it
may be that many sides of tho question at
issue will be discused. Of course Spalding's
arrangements for a series of games in America
before the chainpions'np season begins were,
doubtless, considered unmindful of any inter
ference byclub3 whose players are Journey
ing with bpalding. It may, therefore, be that
if the latter hears of the numerous complain
ings, grumblings and threats, he will abandon
the American programme he has arranged.
He may be inclined to carry it out, and if tho
plajers stick to him, then will begin a big tug
It is eiy to understand that the clubs that
demand their players from the Sualdmg com
bination on April 1 hare baseball law on their
side. Mr. Spalding has no rule or anything
like it to defend hiin, and any defense he may
make or that may be made for him must be
built on something other than law. While there
is no rule to defend him or tho players with him,
the clubs that desire their players have some
strong arguments In their favor entirely out
side of the rules. Manager Phillips, of the lo
cal club, put the case of Pittsburg iery con
cisely and forcibly to me jesterday dnnnga
conversation. He said: "We do not desire tUe
services of Carroll and Hanlon on April 1, or
as soon as they return, because of any Ungen
erous feeling toward President Spalding. On
the contrary, wc would be disposed to assist
Mr. tjpaldmj in any possible way were our own
wishes only to be consulted in the matter. The
public, however, is a fac'or. We have closed
engagements with several Western cities for
spring exhibition games, and the western peo
ple certainly expect us to take our best team.
We agreed to do that, and if we break faith
considerable trouble may be caused. Again I
am certain that the admirers of the local club
would nor like to see its prospects jeopardized J

We all know that they are not allowed tonlav

Itisonlyfairtosaytbattheieis much com
mon sense of a very good business quality in
wnat manager I'nunps says. The only real
sound argument in his favor, however, is the
rules. The law in the matter is really so plain
that all controversy about it ought "to cease:
but it is a fact tha" there is as much sentiment
In baseball as anythirg else. This sentimental
iti has time and again caused very plain, and
rigid rules lobe l.-noicd. It would be super
fluous to recall the many instances that have
ccurred In proof of the abm e statement. But
everi club is out Tor all the money possible to get,
and it is thought that if the Australian plac
ers, as they are called, can be held back until
the championship season opens they mil lie
drawing cards at the respective cities. This
probably is the great mcentiieto the opposi
tion agamst Spalchr.fr. It is a pity that Hi's so.
Mauv baseball admirers would like to see the
two teams just as they w ere in Australia. India
and Europe. President Spalding has. or at
leasj wll have by April, carried out a g'gantic
venture, indeed; one that his done more to
popularize Amelica's national game through
out the world than ever thing put together in
the baseball business. Sentiment ought to
prompt all of us to give him all the help and
encouragement we can.

on the nart of almost all police authorities m

Judging from the contents of a letter I re
ceived the other day from San Francisco, it
seems that O'Connor and Gandaur are not go
ing to have the pleasant and profitable time
they expected.. From the day on which the
alleged match was made I have steadily ex

There were many interesting features of the
dog show that ended on Friday. Probably tho
most interesting and pleasing was the good at
tendance during the four days. I don't know
yet whether or not the society lost or gained
money by the venture, but I do know that the
X aon t Know
attendance was much bettertban was expected.
The sh0 however, was far short of previous i
I shows, and it is not unrair to say that in quality
- ..- -w .nn.lnr.tn Tf- nnl.lrl hlVA llAPt, '
better managed and better arrangements
inside the rink could have been made.
Tha great feature, however, was the
absence of almost all the leading
dogs throughout the country. For this the
local socieU was responsible. The society
withdrew from the American Kennel Club, and
in doing that It left the best company in the
country. The A- K. C. is strong, and is made
up of all the bet societies in tne country.
Owners of dogs are of opinion that any prizes
secured at mows not governeo. uy us luies are
not iorth very much. Pittburg's show was
not under its auspices or regulations, -and as a
result scores of the champion doss w ere not
here. Tbis fact mav induce Pittsburg to get
back to the A. IC C. as soon as possible.
I was told the other day that efforts will be
made shortly to organize a new dog fanciers'
society here. The gentlemen interested in the
matter are mostly youns men who own con
siderable stock themselves. It is claimed that '

One of the big surprises Of the week was
"Mitchell's challenge to Smith. The former

prise. Mitchell insisted that he could not fight

these two men would attract a large audience,
and doubtless Mitchell and Smith hu e had tho
matter talked over. Public boxing is killed in
America now, and it will be some time before
it will find favcr in the eyes of the powers that
been here doing business will return to their
native land, and w e may hear of a boxing boom
on tne other siue shortly.
Patsy Cardiff is not a stickler in the matter
of black or w bite men. He does not object to
Peter Jackson because the latter is a colored
man, and he has signed articles to fight the big
Australian in Anrli next. The nronosed battle
will be one of exeat interest and has alrcadv
created much talk In sporting circles. The con- I
test will be interesting because it will afford an i

too soon, however, to make any predictions re-
approaches I may have a few more words to
,,f tiip mitter
ay on me matter.
Jack McAuliffe and Billy Myers will have
their fistic argument during the latter part of
next week, or in the beginning of the week fol
lowing. A letter received in this city from
Billy Madden, the other day, states that Me.
Mia., is training
McAnliffe, and both trainer and principal are
confident of victory. The Myers party are also
confident, and the battle promises to be a des
perate one. I expect to see McAuliffe add an
other victory to his alreadvlbnglist. He has
bad more experience than Myers, and is more
EcientiHc and also a little stronger. Myers is a
good man: we all know that, but he has never
been In front or an opponent like McAuliffe.
Tie latter is training inMers' own district,
and the betting in and about Chicago show s
McAuliffe to be a 2 to 1 favorite.
It is likely that a battle will soon be arranged
between Domlnick McCaffrey and Jack Demp
sey. The former has a forfeit of SS00 up to (
u;uk viiuci Astziuiisvj ui iiiiuuiiy else to a
finish. He prefers Dempsey, however, and
states that if the California Athletic Club will
give ?3,000 he will bet DempSej $5,000 on the
outside. This will give the winner $10,000, pro
viding the arrangements are for the winner to
take alk McCaflrpj's offer Is genuine and he
means every wotI he says. Dempse has re
peatedly declared his w illingness to meet Mc
Caffrey If the Athletic club will give the 5.000
pure. It is likely that the monev will be of
fered,and if it is. there will be a remarkable
light to a finish. It may be that arrangements
for the battle will be made in a few days; at
least something definite will be beard regard

TWO SCIENTIFIC TALKS.
One Man Speaks of the Brain and Nervous
System, nnd Another, Queerly Enough,
of tho Modern Piano.
Thefourthand fifth leeturesin the popular
Saturday lecture course were delivered at
CurryHall yesterday afternoon by E. W.
Stewart, 21. D.f on "The Brain and Nervous
System," and Prof. A. E. Frost, on "The
Dr. R. W. Stewart was first introduced to
the audience, and by means of charts and a
skull, proceeded to give some interesting
facts in regard to the workings of the brain
and nerve cells.
i. The nervous system of a caterpillar was
pictured out as consisting of a fine string of
ganglion or connected nerve centers, with
the one In the head, the largest taking the
place of the brain in animals. Tracing the
enlargement to the higher animals, the
lecturer stated that the nervous system of
man was the largest of any other animal, ex
cept the elephant and whale.
In explaining the structure and functions
of the"brain and the action of the censory
and motor nerves in governing the actions
of the body, it was shown how different por
tions of the brain controlled the actions of
the body, through a system of nerves, which,
if that particular portion were destroyed
as the portion governing the arm the
fower to more that member wonld be gone,
ntelllgenee was explained as a matter of
eaucation, as evjucci oj tne unaeveiopea
nerve centers that govern any one member
that had previously been intent upon tak
ing up the work and going on. The brain
resembling a double set of boilers when
one half is destroyed the other halt takes up
the work of supplying the muscles, or
engine of the body, with power.
Prof. A. E. Frost followed with the
second lecture, on ."The Piano." The
lecturer, however, dealt more directly with
sound and its effects. A sonometer was
used ln explaining the division of the waves
and a spiral rope for the same purpose.
vthe quality, tone, pitch, etc., of sound
were thoroughly explained, the lecturer
ending with charts of the action of the clafi-
fcord, the first attempt at a piano, a spinnet,
ana tne action oi a modern piano.
AGEKT O'BRU'ft EXONERATED
From Responsibility for tho Downfall of
At the special meeting of the Humane
Society yesterday afternoon Agent O'Brien
was fully exonerated from all responsibility
or neglect of duty in placing Hatie MoKul
ty in a house in Allegheny where, it Is al
leged, she was ruined.
Neither Mrs. Mair nor Mrs. Ottdry. of the
Ol.t. T)nM.J F r !l! J a.
unit uuuiu ui viuuruips, were present,
though notified. Agent O'Brien's report
stated that he first found the girl in the
Thirty-sixth ward station in 1886 on a charge
of incorrigibility preferred by her mother.
Her brother then took her to his home.
Some two months later she again applied
to Agent O'Brien and was placed ln the
Woman's Christian Home, the matron soon
requesting that she be taken away. A place
was then secured for her at a woman's.
Whose husband keens a saloon in Alle
gheny, ut did not then sell liquor. Agent
O'Brien was again notified that the girl was
not wnnted, and in September the woman
brought ber to the office and refnsed to keep
her longer, and she was ultimately tent to
the City Farm.
The committee's report stated that as the
two ladies who made the complaint were ab
sent, and considering the opinion of Chief
Elliott and the Matron of the Temporary
Home, they condemned the story as false
and see no reason to find fault with Agent

Features of the Week.
THE17PSAND DOWNS OF TRADE.
Said to Hare Ulterior Designs on
the Petroleum Market.
A SLUMP IN HIOH-FLTING STOCKS
Local business the past week was devoid
of anything of an exciting nature.
In stocks the chief features were advances
ln Union Switch and Signal and La Norla,
a slight depression in Philadelphia Gas,
and a diminished demand for Traction.
The petroleum market was as much of a
mystery as ever. It was bullish and bearish by
turns. The net result was to leave prices lower
than they opened on Monday. Yesterday it
was reported that the refiners nad taken a
hand in the operations, with a view to holding
the market down. If this be true, it explains
why bullish field news failed to have its usual
and natural effect.
There was considerable trading in real estate,
bnt ho important properties changed hands, so
far as reported. Values were strong with an
advancing tendency. Permits for 22 new build
ings were issued, the estimated cost of which
Money was abundant and cheap, with a
steadily Increasing surplus. This will find em
ployment when the spring trade opens.
Iron was quiet and a shado weaker. Pig was
lower. Manufacturers and brokers were confi
dent of a speedy revival in the demand.

The coal stock market yesterday was practi
cally featureless. Switch was a shade weaker,
as a natural reaction from the advanced ground
it had assumed earlier in tho week. La Norla
was firm and active. Philadelphia Gas was
nominally weaker and neglected. Nothing was

STOCKS LET GO.
Free Offerings Break the Bull Boom
Operntors Worse Scared Than Hart
Final Changes la the Direc
tion of Lower Values.
Hew York, February 2. The stock market
was again very active this morning, but the
tone of the dealings was not so strong as during
the previous two days, and most of the active
shares are Small fractions loweras the result of
the day's operations. The bullish Sentiment
was still undiminished this morning, especially
in tne vaiiueruius, anu tuey continued tne
leadiinr bull card. The temptation to realize
the profits of the past few days was, however,
too much for the trading element, and free
offerings of stocks finally led to a slow yielding
of values, although, considering the pressure
on the list, prices v. ero remarkably well held,
and some stocks even scored a final gain.
Besides the stocks mentioned Cotton Oil, Mis
souri Pacific and Atchison were especially
strong in the early trading, and tho first-named
stock remained strong throughout.
Opening figures were generally lower, but
the changes from last evening were confined to
Slight reactions, Louisville and Naslnillo being
most conspicuous with a gain of $ per cent. A
strong tone prevailed for the first row minutes,
but the realizations began Immediately, and
their effect was soon seen In the checking of
