Interesting Gossip About Other Lo

PRESIDENT BYME'S KEW SCHEIE.
h Talk About
GENERAL SPORTING KEWS OF THE DAT
It was stated yesterday afternoon on the
most reliable authority that President
Nimick was interested in more thincs than
matters connected with his ranche during
his absence from the city. He visited Buf
falo, and had a long conversation with Jack
Rowe regarding the latter's coming to Pitts
burg. As a result, President Ximick was
given plainly to understand that Mr. Howe
will not be here.
The President and player met and tslked
in the most friendly way, indeed; it is
stated that not a harsh word was spoken or
a threat made on cither side. Business
only was meant. "White was also present,
and he and Rowe stated their case to the
following effect: They have invested their
money in the Buffalo club, and mean to
look after it. They think they can make a
success of the club without violating any
rules, as they do not intend to play during
this season. After this year they claim
that their term reservation will expire and
they will be free. They have no objection
to any particular League club, but simply
desire to make a business venture for them
selves. This statement was made in good faith,
and the local officials are now convinced
that Bowe won't play here. Kuehne will,
therefore, play at short, and Smith at third,
and Pittsbure will keep its $4,000 purchase
money, together with the 53,500 for Bowe's
salary. Detroit will be the great loser, as
the releases of Bowe and "White would have
THE MIDGET GETTING EEADT.
"Midget" Miller, the popular little catch
er of the local club, means to be in the best
possible condition when the season com
mences. George visited Colonel Pratt's
establishment, yesterday, and invested in a
pair of gloves, and will commence work in
earnest at once. He has obtained permission
to exercise daily in an Allegheny gym
nasium, and, beside the indoor practice, he
has mapped out a daily programme of pedes
trian exercise. At present he is looking as
ruddy as a cherry, and, to quote his own
words, "means to be in the front rank during
the season." It is likely that he will soon
be joined by Morris and Kuehne in his
practice, and the trio will make things ex
ceedingly lively. Miller is not altogether cer
tain as to what the clnb will do with
him. It is a fact that there
is a strong desire to put him in the outfield if a
first-class man can be obtained in his place. It
will be a difficut task, however, to accomplish
this, and the probability is he will be a regular
catcher. However, he stated yesterday that he
is willing to fill any position assigned to him.
He will leave for Harrishurg to-morrow to
bring his mother to his home.
A rEOSIISIXG PLATER,
i Miller was accompanied yesterday by a fine
young fellow named Charles Mitchell. He
played first hase in the Trenton club when
Miller was a member of it Mitchell has had a
long rnn of hard lack. Some time ago he was
attacked by typhoid fever and has been in the
Allegheny Hospital for several weeks. He
came out of that institution a few days ago and
is looking all right again. He is now desirous
of securing an engagement, and Miller states
that he is an excellent first-baseman and will be
a good man for any of the prominent clubs of
the minor leagues.
Fete McShannic is more anxious than ever to
play with the Hamilton club. The directors of
the latter held a meeting yesterday, when it
would be decided whether or not Manager
Swartwood wonld be authorized to grant Mc
Ehannic's terms. The latter has stated what
he wants, and his demands are somen hat high
er than the usual figure paid by Hamilton, but
It is understood that Manager Swartwood
thinks he Is worth the price asked. At any
rate, McShannic yesterday afternoon seemed
tolerably confident of going to Hamilton.
The special from Boston published in The
Dispatch j csterday, regarding the battle be
tween uumap ana larrou. lias reonenea tne
discussion about that unpleasant affair. The
Boston authority seems to know all about it,
but he appears to be exceedingly wide of the
trnth. Speaking of the affair yesterday, Man
ager Phillips said: "It is a pity that the matter
has been brought up again, but it is easy to
know who prompted the Boston "writer. Char
ley Smith resides there,and the fight was about
STRIPPED FOE THE FIGHT.
It was his attempted sacrifice hit that caused
the fight. When Dunlap spoke abont it in the
dressing room Smith did not take the matter
up but Carroll did. Several of the latter's
friends who saw tbe encounter tell me that tbe
battle was a fair one and that both men
stripped for their work. Dunlap dazed Carroll
by an upper cut and then bad a comparatively
easy task in making Fred quit. Dunlap's
ankle was very bad at the time. This is tbe
truth about the matter. However, President
Nimick aDd myself are sorry that the affair
has not been allowed to drop. We now have
three men in the club who do not speak as tbey
passbv. Smith and Dunlap never speak, nor
does the latter and Carroll. This kind of uu
pleasantness must be stopped."
Manager Phillips had a few words to say
about tbe League and Association and the
graded salary plan. He said- "I understand
that the Association matmates have their plan
all prepared, but its details are to be kept
secret until their meeting in Starch. That
meeting will not be held until after the League
meelinc, but 1 think matters will be adjusted
satisfactorily. If it is found that there is a
difference between tbe two plans, I suppose the
League will hold a special meeting and see
whether or not the Association plan is the bet
ter one. Doubtless either party will be willing
to adopt this plan. It may be that the League
will have some improvements to suggest.
Again, it may be that each organization will
appoint a committee to discuss the two plans
and formulate one out of them. This would
eem the better way. At any rate, it will never
do for the Association to have one plan and
the League another."
During his conversation Manager Phillips, in
answer to a question, referred to Hanlon's
case. Said he: "If Hanlon and our club fail
to come to terms we will have to look around
for another good outfielder, but he will not be
allowed to plav elsewhere, as we have bongbt
his release. However, he, Dunlap and Con
way are great friends and I think he'll come
here. President Nimick told me to-day that he
has not definitely agreed to allow President
Spalding the use of Carroll and Hanlon's
services. He says he only half promised to do
so and that only under certain conditions."
Etna Stars Organizing.
The Etna Stars have gotten down to busi
ness for the approaching season. They are
likely to be admitted to the County League,
and have organized a strong team, as follows:
Frank Plunkett, manager; catchers, F. Metz
gar. H. Gueth and J. Rineroff; pitchers, 8.
Wallace, J. Brooks, M. Tibby and P. Sand
fried; first base, T. McCoy; second base, M.
Hickcy; third base. J. Beizell; shortstop, E.
Marlbuiger: left field. J. Buckley; center field,
M. Halleian; right field, M. Meyers.
Grant Brlggs' statement.
Grant Briggs, now signed to play with the
Syracuse Stars, called at this office last even
ing and made the following statement: "I wish
it to be distinctly understood that lam entirely
clear of the Worcester club. There ha been
considerable talk about that club causing me
trouble. I got my release from the treasurer
of the dull, and I have it now. Thin nnrrht tn
end all talk regarding the matter."
He Thinks Clnclnnntl Wrone In Spoiling tho
LOCISVII.I.K, February 1 President David
son says that the deal in which he was trying to
dispose of Hecker and Cook, wilfall through,
probably, owinc to Cincinnati's objection. He
was not after a fielder, but a young pitcher
whom he thinks would have proved of great
value to the Lonlsvilles. He declined to say
what player he intended securing, but inti
mated that the sale would have been made had
the Association clnbs waived theif claim to
Hecker. He received answers from all the
clubs excepting Brooklyn, and out of these
Cincinnati was the only one which refused to
relinquish their rights to Hecker and Cook.
The action of the Cincinnati club in declining
that reauest, he said, deserved criticism, for
tbey not only rejected his request, but even
went so far as to offer tbe insignificant sum of
a "few hundred dollars" for a battery like
Hecker and and Cook.
Had the Cincinnati clnb wanted these two
men they certainly would have valued their
services at a great deal more than that; and
should at least have made President Davidson
something like a "respectable offer," or else
not stand in the way of a deal, which the Louis
ville management believed wonld be of essen
tial importance to the club. Mr. Davidson
said to-day that Cook was not for sale, and that
it would take more than an ordinary induce
ment to make him part with tbe backstop.
With regular work Cook will prove a valuable
man behind the bat, and President Davidson
recognizes tbe fact, and has determined to
keepbim. It is safe to say, however, that
lleckex will not wear a Louisville uniform
next season, and everything points to a trade
or a sale.
POINTERS ABOUT PLAYERS.
Stevo Toole mentions Tiro or Tbreo Worth
' Looking After.
Steve Toole, the pitcher, now signed with the
Rochester International League Clnb, had a
few words to say last evening regarding the
league named. He said:
"There are a few good young players In the
International League, and it might be well for
Pittsbnrg or any other National League clnb
to keep an eye on some of them In
stead of investing large sums in the
older stars. I'm certain that a better
outfielder than Burke, of the Torontos, can
not well be found. He is undoubtedly as fine
a base runner as I have seen; a good hitter and
an excellent fielder. Simon is another rood
man. McKeogh, the catcher of the Rochester
Clnb, is as good a thrower to bases as I ever
saw in the Association. As a catcher I think
he is equal to Decker, the man signed by Phil
adelphia. McKeogh is a light hitter, but it will
be difficult to get a better catcher."
Steve thinks that Toronto will be strong this
year. He speaks highly of Atkinson's pitch
ing and thinks he is almost as good as anybody.
His arm is all right and he has tremendous
SULLIVAN WAS REFEREE.
Lnnnonnnd Godfrey Flsht Fifteen Rounds to
Boston, February L Joe Lannon, of South
Boston, and George Godfrey, the well-known
colored heavy-weight pugilist of this city, faced
each other to-night for 15 rounds, for a purse of
S1.000, at the rooms of the Cribb Club. There
was a very large attendance of sports, and
more than 500 were unable to gain admission,
John L. Sullivan acted as referee. Lannon
began the fighting, and in tho first ten
rounds did practically all the leading. There
was much bad temper shown by both men, and
much clinching was done.
For tbe last five rounds Godfrey showed to
better advantage than Lannon, but both
were weak and their blows did xery
little execution. At the end of tbe fifteenth
round Lannon expressed a desire to continue
tbe fight, but as the understanding arrived at
previous to the fight was that in case neither
contestant was knocked out at the end of 15
rounds the match sbonld be declared a draw,
the referee so declared it.
What Two Local Anthorlttcs Think Will
Win the Die Race.
John Loomis. the well-known poolseller of
the late firm of Price fc Co., has resolved to try
his lnck in Denver. He will go there and open
a poolroom, and If success does not shine upon
him there he intends to try some other West
ern city. John has many friends out West; in
deed he is well known all over the country as a
genial and honest man.
Speaking of tbe Suburban yesterday, he stat
ed that in his opinion Donnybrook, with 93
pounds up, is as likely to win as any other
among tbe list of entries. He intends to invest
a little on Donnybrook'6 chance of victory. On
the other hand, "Pony" Glessner, whose judg
ment is invariably good, thinks that Eolian,
with 115 pounds up, is worth backing. He said:
"Garrison owns the horse and will probably
ride him, and we all know that he has remark
able speed. At any rate, if Eolian goes to the
post fit and well my money will go on him."
WHAT BTRNE WILL DO.
He Will Only Allow Brooklyn Sunday Games
on Long Island.
ItYECUL TELEGEAJI TO THK MSPATCH.J
New York, February 1 President Byrne,of
tbe Brooklyn club, promises a revolution in
Sunday baseball games. Heretofore there
havo been many games played at different
points on Long Island in addition to those by
the Brooklyn clnb. Already many minor
league clubs have arranged for Sunday games
on Long Island, and Byrne has concluded to
enforce his five-mile privilege and is going to
stop all these games.
From what Mr. Byrne says, he can not only
stop all national agreement clnbs from playing
on his territory, but any club not under its
protection that breaks the rule can be barred
lrom playing a national agreement club after
ward. Mr. Byrne says that this change was
made in tbe rules at the Pittsburg meeting.
Before tbe change in the rule was made he had
control of the territory five miles from the city
line; now it is five miles from the county line.
WILL MEET TO-NIGHT.
County Lencne to Elect Officers and
Transact Other Badness.
The Allegheny County Baseball League will
hold its first meeting this year this evening, in
a law office at the corner of Fourth avenue and
Grant street, this city.
Tbe principal business to be transacted will be
a reorganization and election of officers. Dan
iel McCarthy, of tbe Braddock Tribune, has
held the position of President, and W. J. Barr,
of the East find, has served as Secretary dur
ing the past year. Since both officers have
given entire satisfaction tbey will likely be re
elected. Tne question of enlarging the league
membership and the condition of" admittance
will be considered. A schedule of games for
next season will also be made out. There is
every prospect of the Allegheny County
League being very strong this 3 ear.
A Very Good Plan.
There were cliques, rings and back-cappers
in the New York club until Day called the
players into the club room on one occasion and
said: "We will get along better if we have open
and mutual daily discussions. I want every
one to speak out, I am Chairman. Let me
hear from you on O'Rourke's play in the
seventh inning yesterday." This brought
O'Rourke to his feet flushed in the face, and he
said: "What was the matter with Ward's
blunder in the fifth?" and so it went on, till
every man had nicked out flaws in some one
else. Day listened quietly until all had finished,
when he said: "Here is the whole trouble. We
see the bad plays of each other, but tail to see
our own. This has been a good meeting.
Come to-morrow at the same time." The
meetings were continued and there was less
bsck-bitinc each day as tbey saw how childish
their fault-finding was and it ceased altogether.
Then they began the teamwork which gave the
club the pennaut
New Orlcnns Winners.

Sbeehnn Is Willing.
In answer to the challenge of Jacob Schaffer,
which appeared in Saturday's Dispatch,
David R. Shcehan replies as follows: "I will
run Jacob Schaffer, of Bellalre, a 100-yard foot
race if he forwards articles and a forfeit to
The Dispatch. I make this request so that
he can show whether or not he means busi
ness." Hornong Signs With Baltimore.
Baltimore, February 1 Joe Hornung,Bos-1
ton's crack fielder, to-day accepted the offer
made him by the Baltimoro Baseball Club, apd
was forwarded a contract to play here the com
Ironwood All RIsbt.
James McAff ee, the owner of the young trot
ter Ironwood, was questioned about his horse
yesterday and said: "He is getting along all
right under the charge of Mr. Sam Keys. Last
winter we think he became too fat and we
could not get him into condition. This year
we will guard against that, however. We will
not enter him in any stake races, but we may
start him somewhere in the circuit. Tbe horse
has not been thoroughly tried yet Charley
Friel, as usual, is all right."
Not n Fair Challenge.
Tho Newcastle gun shooters are anxious to
have it out with the Pittsburgers. Yesterday
the former forwarded a challenge to the Her
ron Hill Gun Club to the following effect:
Five of the New Castle men will shoot five of
the Henon Hill Club members, 25 birds per
man, for $50 a side, to shoot a trap and handle
match Bogardus rules. The Herron Hill mem
bers claim that the conditions are unreason
able, as the rules named never govern a trap
and handle match.
Dempsey Is at Buffalo this week and will
meet all comers.
Jim Connors is making a great success as
instructor at the Bast End gymnasium.
Harry Sampson (Pendragon), of the Lon

bully," and not a fighter.
An interesting letter was received in this city
yesterday from "Pittsburg Phil." who is in

According to reports Pete must have received
several releases from the local club.
Spider Weir and Frank Murphy will face
each other for 20 rounds in about a month for a
Surse of $1,000, offered by a prominent club in
oston. Al Smith, of New York, has been re
quested to referee the fight.

The agreement between Tom Conners and
Thomas McMahon, of Detroit, for their mixed
wrestling match in Detroit between February
21 and 25. is for 200 a side and the middle
weight championship of America. Tbe styles
are catcb-as-catch-can and Graeco Roman, best
three in five falls. Conners is training in Den
nis Gallagher's gymnasium at Buffalo.
Deacon White thus sizes up the muddle:
"It is difficult to tell when our trouble with De
troit will be settled. There is practically $3,000
lost to Detroit on us, so that it they want to
settle they've got to do the talking. It would
be perfectly useless for me to go to them wit h
a proposition. If we can make a satisfactory
deal for our releases we will do it, and then we
will play with the Buffalo club, not before.
The reserve holds cood for only one year, the
contract plainly states it, so that if we only
hold off for a year, we would in all fairness be
free. ButtheLeague'claims that the reserve
continues In force. This point the Brother
hood of Ball-players disputes, and I think they
would support our position. J am not a mem
ber of the brotherhood, but Howe is."
TALKING OF TEUSTS.
The Sennte Again Considers tbe Project to
Slake Combinations TJnlnwfuI
Vicwi of Messrs. Sher
man and George.
"Washington, February 4. The Senate
to-day resumed consideration of the bill "to
declare unlawful trusts and combinations,
in restraint of trade and production." Mr.
Jones, of Arkansas, made an argument in
support of the bill. Mr. Georee said that
he was extremely anxious that a bill should
pass this Congress which would put an end
forever to combinations that dictated what the
people should pay when they purchase certain
articles, and what tbey shall receive when they
sell them. He criticised the pending bill, how
ever, as one which would have brought within
its punitory provisions the Southern farmers
who combined last year against the Jute Bag
Mr. Sherman asked Mr. Georee whether be
meant to say thatan agreement among farmers
not to buy
oaggmg or anytninc else would be
a combination within
ine meaning of the bill.
Mr. Gcorce replied that that was iust what he
contended. Mr. Sherman thought the proposi
tion a ver extraordinary one, and declared
that such was not his idea, or the Idea of any
one vtho had anything to no with tbe bill, nor
did he believe that was a fair construction.
Mr. George contended that the bill would ap
ply to temperance societies whose object was
breakup the trade in liquor, and to farmers
who agreed not to sell produce below certain
prices, and said that he was not prepared to
sustain a bill of that sort, which seems to be
aimed at phantoms and not at real grievances.
The trouble with tbe bill was, he said, that it
attempted to do the impossible and to draw
within the commercial power of Congress
(under the Constitution) jurisdiction over the
Mr. George then resumed his argument in
criticism ot tbe bill. He expressed his inten
tion of offering amendments looking to tbe
suspension ur reduction of import duties on
the articles as to which trusts are
formed, and be summed up his objections to
the bill by saying that its provisions wonld be
inefficient, and that the bill was without Con

A New York Drygoods House With an Ex
tensive Bnsiness Collapses.
New Yobk, February 4. Robert John
ston, doing business as J. & C. Johnston,
dealer in drygoods, at Broadway and Twenty-second
street,madc an assignment to-day,
giving preferences for 517,013 to the execu
tors of the estate of Richard Mortimer for
rent of the store. The salaries of employes
are also preferred. The assignee is a sales
man for H. B. Claflin & Co., but that firm
say that they are not creditors of Johnston.
Last July Johnston was in financial diffi
culties, and obtained an extension upon
about $60,000 merchandise indebtedness,
which he paid during October. At the
time he made the extension his statement
showed assets of 5500,000, of which $300,000
was in stock and the remainder in out
standing accounts. Since that time he has
been in quest of a partner, bat all negotia
tions to this end fell through. The store
rent was 70,000 per annum, which Mr.
Johnston claimed was excessive.
Litigation is likely to arise in reference to
Mrs. M. A. Garretson, of Philadelphia,
who held an interest in the profits of the
business for many years. Robert Johnston
purchased her interest a year ago for 5123,000,
giving notes for the amount running three
years. The house of J. & C. Johnston was
established with a capital of $25,000 in 1864,
by Charles Johnston. Charles died in May,
1880, leaving an estate of 5800.000 to John,
who dies several years later, leaving to
Robert his entire estate. John's estate was
said to be worth 51,500,000. A year ngo
Robert Johnston claimed assets of 51,500,000,
against liabilities of 5360,000.
THE FEELING AT BERLIN.
The Snmonn Trouble is tho Leading Topic of
Beklii?, February 4. Commenting upon
the action of the United States Senate in
voting a credit for a coaling station at Pago
Pago, the National Zeitung says:
"America obtained tbe right to establish a
coaling station from Malietoa, but she did not
take advantage of tbe privilege within the
specified time. The establishment of a station
now wonld appear to De an American protest
against German annexation."
The North German Gazette says: "Even if
there is no reason to deny the statement that
Secretary Bayard sent instructions to Mr. Pen
dleton, it is certain that the latter has made no
overture whatever to tbe German Govern
ment On account of ill health, Mr. Pendleton
has not called at the foreign office for months,
and since he resumed his duties, some weeks
ago, he has not been the bearer of any
official communication whatever from his
Government about f,he Samoa matter. We
should not be astonished if next month, when
Mr. Harrison enters office, if somebody else
should be appointed to represent America

Harriscukg, February 4. Mr. Arthur
Kennedy, of Allegheny's Common Council,
and Kelson P. Keed, of the Commercial
Gazette, arrived here to-day, and gave new
life to tho charter discussion. The only
Allegheny county members in town are
Messrs. McCullough and Shiras, but the
rest will be here in the morning. The inter
municipal bill is the special order for third
reading at 12 o'clock, and the Allegheny
bills for second reading at 12:30.
Mr. Kennedy says these bills are a mat
ter ot life and death to Allegheny and he
claims to have received promises of aid from
the representatives of third-class cities. Presi
dent Hunter, of Common Council, Solicitor
Elphlnstone and others are expected here to
morrow. Congressman Bayne arrived hero to-night,
and though he had nothing to say about the re
port that he was here to opnose the bill, it is
understood that the lnrid editorial expressions
of his home organ were without his sanction,
and that ho is in favor of the measure.
All rumors, however,sink in Interest when
compared with the important one that C. L.
Magee is coming in the interest of the Pitts
burg manufacturers who object to the pro
visions of the new revenue bill taxing manu
facturing corparations. Governor Beaver is
said by gentlemen in a position to know, to
have declared he will veto the bill unless this
provision is retained. He considers that other
wise tbe measure would not be constitutional.
He is also said to have had the same views
concerning the taxation of building and loan
associations, bnt these are especially exempted
from taxation by a proviso. Simpson.
SOLDIERS ORPHAN SCHOOLS
Are to Receive a Close and Rigid
nation by Veterans.
CFROM A STAFF COnHESPONnEST.3
Hareisburg, February 4. To-morrow
morning the special committee of veteran
soldiers of the House, appointed to consider
the whole question of the soldiers' orphan
schools, will meet to consider a plan of action.
Tho next important matter on to-morrow's pro
cramme are the municipal bills and the hear
ing to be given by the Ways and Means Com
mittee of the House to tbe financial officers of
the State on their revenue bill. The Soldiers
Orphans' Committee will first obtain all the in
formation possible from the Department of
Public Instruction officials, who say that they
court investigation. Attention will then be
turned to the schools themselves, and some of
them at least will be visited.
Tho sentiment of the committee seems to be
in favor of the continuance of the schools un
til the present scholars shall have been prop
erly educated by the State as were their nred-
cccssors, but further admissions to the school
is in distinct and unmistakable disfavor. A
matter of imnortance that will be pressed on
the board relates to the syndicate schools, and
provides that no scholars shall be placed in a
school the owners of which control more than
The syndicate owns four schools, and it is
claimed that there is plenty of room in the
other schools for the scholars from three of
them. A bill is also to be introduced to place
tbe schools under the charge of a commission
with the Governor at its head.
A KEW PENSION BILL
Introdnced In the Stato Legislature
Recommendation to Congress.
ISPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Haebisburg , February 4. In the House
to-night Representative Skinner, of Fnlton,
offered the following, which was unani
Whebeas, It Is generally conceded that the
pension laws of the United States now in force
are sadly defective in that they allow the same
rate of pensions for a short time as for a long
term of service, thus rewarding in the highest
degree many men wno have rendered no ade
quate service to the Government in the field in
the time of its greatest need and peril: and
Whereas, The long lapse of time since the
close of the war has made it almost impossible
to substantiate with the necessary proofs many
really meritorious and just claims; therefore
Resolved (If the Senate concur). That our
Senators and Representatives in Congress be
requested to favor the passage of a general
service pension bill, such as shall be fair and
just to all honorably discharged soldiers and
sailors of the late war, and which will in a
measure remove tho temptation now existing
for pension claimants to commit perjury and
subornation of perjury.

Harrisburg, February 4. The electric
light bill introduced by a Philadelphia Repre
sentative on Friday is reported to be designed
to fit a special case. Its provisions are peculiar
in that they aim to givo exclusive privileges to
such a company to furnish heat, light and
power in the district covered by its charter, not
only by means of electricity but by any other
means. The bill will probably die in commit
tee, as this Is not its only objectionable feature.

On the Recommittal of a Sleasnre of Vital
Interest to Insurance Companies.
FBOK A STAFF COKKESPOXDEXT.J
Habbisbubg, February 4. In the
House to-night Mr, Kreps, of Franklin
county, created a stir by moving the recom
mittal of House bill No. 28, one of the most
important measures before the House, on the
ground that it affected 5100,000,000. Objections
were made by several gentlemen that Mr.
Wood, of Lycoming, the parent of the bill, was
not present, and that it would in consequence
be discourteous to him to take such action.
The Chairman 'of the Insurance Committee
joined in the request for the recommittal of
the bill, and Mr. Kreps made the point that
duties imposed upon him by the House and
Speaker compelled his absence, and be didn't
think any courtesy to a member absent without
leave should stand in the way of his request.
Mr. Wood happened to arrive about that
time, and broadly intimated that the attempt
to recommit the bill was an effort to strangle
it, and he thought it very discourteous of the
Chairman of the committee to make tbe at
tempt in his absence, when he had promised to
give him notice of any such effort
Mr. Brooks, ot Philadelphia, here paved the
way to pcaco by stating that? he was in favor of
tho bill in its present form, and did not think
it posslblo his opinion conld be chanced, but
several of bis constituents who were insurance
men desired to be heard on the subject, and he
thought it only becoming that this great inter
est should he heard. Interrogated by Mr.
Wherry, he said: "I know there are estimable
gentlemen who desire to bo heard in opposition
t j tbe bill, and while I don't think it possible
for them to convince mo the bill is not what it
should be, I consider it only right they should
Mr. Wood, in view of Mr. Brooks statement,
withdrew his objections, and the bill was re
committed by tbe close vote of 50 to 63.
The bill in question now reads as follows:
Section-1. lie It enacted, etc. That any person,
company or association hereafter Insuring any
bnildiiiE or structure against loss or damage by
Are or lightning by the renewal of a policy here
tofore issued or otherwise, 'shall cause such

part ot the insured, in case of total loss

An interesting-looking Cabinet boom was

General Harrison had already selected

that the anonymous Secretary-to-be is

who is ineligible on account of being an im

About the only Treasury boom that shows
any disposition to hang together is John C.

to confirm the apparently semi-official re

Associated Press that he had re

in evidence when the murder of Inspector
Martin is investigated. These posts are cov

Martin was horribly mangled, his face be

During tbe affray seven constables were severe

EXCITES THE WONDER OP HIS AUDITORS
The Utmost Technical Difficulties Conquered With
Since Hans Gnido von Buelow visited
Pittsbnrg, nearly 15 years ago, no pianist
has appeared here the equal of Moriz Rosen
thal. He was heralded by echoes of his
triumphs along the seaboard, press notices
that well-nigh exhausted the vocabu
lary of praise. Yet the representa
tive, cultured audience that fairly
crowded Old City Hall last night,
drawn by such superlative heralding, showed
no signs of disappointment. Indeed, memory
fails to recall m many years.another such an
audience of Pittsburgers moved to so great
enthusiasm by a simple piano recital. And
young Fritz Kreisler, the assisting violinist,
came in for his fnll share of applause, too.
Tbe programme ran thns:
Sonata in A flat major. Op. S9....C. M. von Weber

Kot a long programme only abont an hour
and a half; not an overly strong one, either, in
omitting representation of the older and nobler
classical schools. This omission wasnot offset,
as partially it might have been, by choosing
among the more modern works any requiring
great breadth of interpretation. Imaginative
power, masterful dignity. Until one bears to
night the Sonata Appassionata and the Fourth
Ballade, he cannot determine whether or not
Moriz Rosenthal possesses these the noblest
qualities of the interpretative artist.
However, though it was not to a banquet of
diimajores that Mr. Rosenthal invited his
hearers, it was to a well-ordered symposium of
the lesser divinities. From the pure, pellucid
romanticism of Weber's too seldom played
sonata, through the deliciously varying, bright
ening moods of the Chopin pieces, down into
tho turbulent brilliance of Liszt's biggest and
hardest opera fantasia, might be traced three
continuous progressions a technical ascent,
an artistic descent, a crescendo of effect and
sensation. It is wrong to count the "Don
Juan" fantasia among "divinities," even the
lesser? Vulcan was misshapen and noisy.
much further alone; the road Rosenthal is
traveling. A virtuoso he is, in the fullest
meaning of that much misused term. It is not
merely that his facile fingers can rival the
nimble music-box in throwing off glittering
runs and trills and filmy arabesques of sound;
not merely that his touch covers all gradations
from velvet to steel or that his wrist seems to
have the power and endurance of a
trip-hammer. Rosenthal approximates ideal
virtuosity more closely yet; mechanical
difficulties are not only met but mastered, and
with a mastery above the merely mechanical
plane; so mastered that each
BIT OF TECHNICAL MECHANISM
is ready instantly and almost automatically to
do tbe bidding of the trained intelligence that
governs all. The occasional over-use of the
ir pedal, which is more effective in American
than in German pianos, was the only notice
able spot upon his otherwise almost faultless
But higher qualities of bead and heart proved
tne piayer an artist as wen as a virtuoso, itev-
erent study, clear comprehension, pure style
and marvelous finish were manifested through
out the sonata: the andante was played with
great delicacy, refinement and feeling. Taken
.at such lightning speed, the clearness of tbe
minuet capriceioso was surprising: only the
low chords opening the trio sonnded like a
double trill. The brilliancy of this minnet as
a climax made the omission of the lighter
rondo (the fourth and last movement)
quite excusable. The Chopin Nocturne
(I) fiat major) brought out the tenderest and
most poetic quality of feeling: it was played
con amore, deliciously. A more virile tone,
naturally, pervaded the impromptu; there was
a rugged breadth in the episode built upon that
strong octave ngure as a peaai poini. r rum
this point on, technical display commenced to
forge ahead of musical interpretation. The
familiar valse was made much more
difficult by Rosenthal's addition of thirds
to the first rapidly rolling theme
and writing inside the second theme a charm
ing reminiscence of the first: its playing was
like an exquisite cameo. The Chant Polonais
bad already been worked up by Liszt; Rosen
thal figured it yet more elaborately and played
ItlirlllfantW Ha AA fho nun with naviflofTs
of sheer virtuosity; tbe utmost technical diffi
culties presented themselves in every shape
only to be mocked by tbe apparent ease of
their conquest; the terribly prolonged climax,
a wonderfully sustained tour deforce, wrought
the audience up to an intense pitch of excite
ment, which had to relieve itself in an out
burst of applause before the end was reached.
Nevertheless many would have been glad to
hear tbe Brahms variations, tor instance, in
stead; would that they were programmed to
night instead of tbe Liszt rhapsody! Is it yet
too late to mend ?
Little, sleepy-looking, tously-haired Fritz
Kreisler did not present the appearance of a
Vienna and Paris first prize-winner as he
stopped on the stage: nor did he play that way
at first. There were tonal shortcomings, im
perfect harmonics and crudities of style none
of them very marked, but quito enough to im
pair the full effect of his earlier sec
tions. Nevertheless he showed from tbe
first abundant canacitv for better achieve
ment, a promise that was realized
fully not until he responded to a hearty en
core after the Paganini perpetual motion
study which piece, curiously, was the worst
thing he did, being played with a mute
throughout, and not immaculately at that, Tbe
encore piece was Wieniawski's "Airs Russes;"
in it and in tbe same eminent virtuoso-composer's
splendid treatment of tbe thematic ma
terial of "Faust," the youthful violinist quito
redeemed himself. His tone was broader and
of more artistic quality; his harmonics became
pure are comfortably certain of Droduction
and the finish, virility and abandon of his
style were remarkable in one of his years.
These two pieces alone presented any consider
able mechanical difficulty (perhaps that is why
he had mastered them better), and they amply
proved his possession of a thoroughly grounded
and well-doveloned techniaue. Much snirit
and feeling had been apparent in his playing
throughout the evening, evidencing an essen
tially artistic nature capable, no doubt,
of very high develpment in time. As
it is, the frnit has been plucked too
early; it were well if it could be grafted again
into the stem and allowed to mature more
fully before being sent to market. An appre
ciative word was earned by tbe intelligent as
sistance ot that experienced- accompanist, Mr.
