GEKERAL SrOETIXG KEWS OP THE DAT
"Wherever two or three local sporting
people are found together the subject ot dis
cussion invariably is about the decline of
sports in this locality. The usual expression
is: "Pittsburg has seen its best sporting
days, and as a city of sports it will never he
inthc front rank again." Together with
this statement, made certainly with earnest
regret by those who make it, is another to the
effect that the decline ot sport has already in
jured business, and ill continue to do so.
From a sporting point of view these state
ments are worthy ot a little comment, because
wbether we are inclined to believe it or not
there are thousands of Pittsburgers directly
and indirectly interested in matters of sport.
It is, doubtless, a fact that sport in almost all
of its branches has declined in Pittsburg dur
ing recent years. Baseball, gun shooting and
probably bicycling are exceptions. But there
was a time when the city was
FAMOUS FOB SCULLERS,
foot runners, boxers, wTestlers and general
sporting men. In all these branches, excepting,
of course, the first named, there has been a re
markable decline. The time was -when there
were numerous good men here in all brandies,
but there is scarcely one in any of them now.
The causes of the decline are an interesting
study because they are not confined to methods
of dishonesty. Thi6 will be discovered if we
consider, and probe a little beneath the surface.
Take, for instance, loot rnnning. If trickery
has knocked it almost into local oblivion, what
has been the cause of the decline of amateur
running? Certainly we cannot argue that fraud
has had anything to do with that. It is true,
nevertheless that amateur foot racing has de
clined: indeed, amateur athletics generally
seem to be less popular here now than thcy
liave been for many years. True, fraud has
caused the declension of professional sprinting,
and the same may be said of rowing, but there
must be another cause that is killing amateur
influence, and the causa seems to be the lack of
interest in the sport. Further, this lack of In
terest undoubtedly has been prompted by the
unpopularity of the kindred professional
branches of sport.
It is not long since there were any amount of
professional rowers m the city. All these men
are in and about the city yet, but they seem to
be no longer rowers.
SPORTIXG PEOrLE TO BLAME.
The same may be said of various other
branches, and the fact stands clearly out that
the members of those particular branches are
to blame themselves for the downfall. Boxing
has not declined of itself, however, because at
two hours' notice the largest building in the
city can be filled wiih an enthusiastic crowd, if
a good honest fistic encounter was announced.
The law, therefore, has vetoed the boxing and
pugilistic bruisers. But the law. undoubtedly,
was invoked by the manner in vliich many of
the contests iu and around the city w ere con
ducted. The poolselling business has also been stopped
by law, not because the public was tired of it.
It is safe to say. however, that had there not
been an old law in existence, which classes
poolselling with the other various forms of
gambling, it would not have been stopped by
any new law that inicht have been passed.
Altogether there seems to be two principal
causes lor the decline of sportB in this city,
viz.. the dishonesty of the people connected
with the sports and the law. The city is cer
tainly no worse for the abolition of prize fight
ing, but whether or not it ii ill beany better
because of the abolition of poolselling is doubt
ful. Thetlesire to speculate is just as great as it
ever was, and as a result what money does not
go to the poolrooms goes to the oil brokers.
This fact oughttoappriselegislators of another
fact, viz: That what the public tires of will die
completely, as in the case of professional scull
ing and sprinting. But what is vetoed without
killing the public desire to sunport it will live.
It may live in another form, no doubt, but its
effects are just the same. Whether or not the
remarkable decline of sports in Pittsburg has
materially affected business may and may not
be true, it is a fact, however, that thousand of
dollars are not now in circulation that would
otherwise have been.
A tour among various people yesterday who
not long ago were rowers, runners aud general
athletes revealed the fact that they have no
intention to continue their sport next 6eason.
The prevailing idea seems to be to become pro
fessional ballplajers. Altogether, It looks as
if Pittsburg's good name in the future annals
of sport depends on the ballplayers sho fends
GOOD SPORT PROMISED.
Great Arrangements SIndc for the Squirrel
The Squirrel Hill Gun Club will have a big
time to-day if the weather is suitable. The
members have arranged for a tournament that
promises to be one of the best held in this
section for some time. Every preparation has
been made for the comfort of visitors and con
testants. The club hou-e has been heated and
a platform erected for the shooters. There are
about 50 entries, including some of the best
trap shots from Johnstown, Scottdale, Irwin,
Grccnsuurp;, Beaver and the local clubs. Every
contest will be open to all Shooting will com
mence at 10:30 this morning and will continue
all day. The grounds can be reached by way
of the cable cars going to Oakland.
There will be five contests, viz: two prize
contests and three sweepstakes. The entrance
fee for each is 1.
NewYoek, February 6. John J. Burdock,
the old second baseman of the Boston club, and
of last season's Brooklyn team, will go to Hart
ford in a few days with the intention of organiz
ing a team in that city and entering the new
, Atlantic League. Burdock thinks that his
chances for success aro of the best, as he has
received promises of good backing. He is of
the opinion that he can get Governor Buntley,
Joseph Barber, Mr. Burr aud Senator Hawley
to put up enough money to at least put the
team on a good looting. Burdock is going to
make a big effort to make the club a success.
Billy Holbcrt is also thinking of going to Troy
and' organizing a club up there composed
mainly ot old Metropolitan players.
Another Female lilntch.
Manager Davis, of the London Theater, has
arranged to hold athree-day female pedestrian
contest beginning on the 21st ir.st. The contest
will be for the female championship of Alle
gheny county, and it promises to be just as ex
citing and as" well worth seeing as the previous
successful contests promoted by Mr. Davis.
. There will be nine starters including, of course,
the previous prize winners.

Detroit, February 6. The office of the De
troit Driving Club prcsentedan animated scene
last nignt, but as none but the stockholders
were admitted to tho meeting, the proceedings,
as viewed by the interested knot of spectators
who stood outside and gazed in through the
big windows, were solely of the pantomime
order. It was tne great fight over the presi
dency of the club that has been brewing for
weeks and culminated last night, when all par
ties to it donned skin gloves and adjourned to
the office of the club to have it out.
After the committee on credentials had made
its report, F. A Baker inaugurated the fun
with a motion to strike out section 15 of the
by-laws, which it is claimed vests all the powers
of the association in the President Mr. Baker
also made an attack on Mr. Campau's presi
dency, asserting that the latter has usurped all
the powers of the association and continuously
antagonized the board of directors. He as
serted that last year Mr. Campau bad taken
the entire management of the club's affairs on
himself and never consulted the directors. A
voire: "Ho made a success of it."
"No, he didn't," continued Mr. Baker, and
he proceeded to set forth that in 1SS7, before
Mr. Campau had become autocratic, the club
had made a profit of S16.000. while last year,
with the entire management In his hands, the
club could show profits of but S1.SO0. He had
also appointed a secretary who was not a mem
ber of the association, contrary to the rules,
and the speaker intimated that the Secretary
worked one-third of the year for the associa
tion and two-thirds for D. J. Campau. Ho
wound up by saying he thought a change in the
Presidency would no a good thing, and inti
mated that tho reason R. W. Gillett had re
signed the Presidency was because D. J. Cam

all the powers of tho President
Finally the voting for a board of directors
commenced, and the result was a great victory
for D. J. Campau. He had a higher vote
HE BOUGHT BOB FISHER.
Frank Van Ness Mnkes a Surprising Pur
chase From Capt. Brown.
Frank Van Ness' mission to this city was not
in vain. He came here to invest in thorough
breds, and though he saw no youngsters to suit
him, he bought Bob Fisher from Captain Sam
Brown. This was somewhat unexpected, as it
has been generally understood that Fisher's
running days were over. Mr. Van Ness saw the
horse at Brownsville yesterday, however, and
thought different. Speaking of his purchase
last evening he said:
"Bob Fisher's only falling was his feet I
examined him closely to-day and satisfied
mjself that they are now all right and I think
I can keep them that way. I take nobody's
word on matters of this kind as I profess to
know something about a horse myself. When
I bought Harry Wilkes everybody laughed at
mo because his feet were so bad. I bought
him, however, and all the continent knows of
the great races I won with him. I will take
Fisher to Kentucky and he will leave for there
to-morrow. I intend to enter him in some of
the stakes not yet closed. Several will not
close for two or three weeks yet I may also
enter him in some handicaps. My intention is
to ultimately put him in the stud.
"I am going through to Kentucky to look at
Blue Wing, but I do not think I will buy him.
I had a notion to do so, Dut I have learned that
his legs are faulty, and I don't want anything
with unsonnd legs. I can manage bad feet
but Injured or faulty legs are different lam
goinr to look at him. however."
Bob Fisher is in his 6th year, and was a
promising younster until he broke down. He
was then transferred to the stud at Browns
ville, where Captain Brown has kept him for
some time. Van Ness left for Lexington last
evening. He refused to say what he paid for
the horse, but intimated that J1.000 was not too
high a guess.

I might possibly injure my hands. But hands
or no hands, I mil fight Jem Smith if he puts
his money up with the Police Gazette or Sport

did he ask for six months, when, to use his oh n
words, "He can beat me if one of his legs was
in the grave ?'' I will allow Sullivan to be a
good man until JulyS, but will then prove to
the public that he is not the man he tries to
make them believe he is. You can cable to
Loudon that I will fight Smith at any time for

if I can fix it so that a match with Smith will
not interfere with my meeting John L., as I
would sooner meet Sullivan than any man liv

for everything that comes anything near his

New Xoek, February 6. Minister Pres
ton, General Contreras and Vice Consul
Singleton were all smiles yesterday. At
last the United States Government had in
terfered with the sailing of a vessel which,
according to Legitime's representations,
was laden with contraband of war. The
vessel was the steamer Carondelet, belong
ing to C. Mallory & Co., and chartered by
an unknown party. The published charter
of the steamer reads: "Time charter at $150
a day." The vessel is really chartered by
the Dominican Consul, Mr. Julia, and he
is said to be the representative of Mr. Han
stedt, of Jimcnes & Handstedt, No. 5 South
District Attornev Stephen A. "Walker
had such a lot of affidavits laid before him
yesterday morning to the effect that the
Carondelet had aboard of her contraband
of war that he libeled the vessel at once.
She had been cleared by Collector Magoue,
but Mr. Walker did not know it when he
gave the libel papers to United States
Marshal George H. Holmes. There were
many vessels lying in the inner harbor and
an extended search was necessary before the
Carondelet was found with steam up and
ready to sail at a moment's notice. The
Marshal and his deputies drew alongside
and formally announced that they seized
the vessel in the name of the United States
Government. Captain William Evans was
ashore, but First Officer James H. Connor
quietly submitted to the inevitable. The
marshal found an overseer and nine steve
dores on the steamer, and regarding this as
evidence that the Carondelet was going to
take further cargo of a contraband nature
aboard, he took all these men off the ship
and landed them at Pier 4, North river.
Marshal Holmes said he would have had
the ship brought to the city and tied her up
to some dock only for the "fact that she had
explosives aboard, and he thought it safer
to leave her where she was. The cargo was
all stowed, and the vessel was very high
out of water, being only partly loaded, the
intention being to have, her stop at Newport
News and take on 1,000 tons of coal.

CHICAGO, February C Inspector Bon

field and Schaack are the officials whom
the Chicago Times has been charging with
corruption in office, the specifications being
that the pair were virtually in leagne with
gamblers, saloon keepers, thieves and tho
demi-monde. The first result of the charges
was the immediate filing of libel suits
against the Times, and these suits were
added to daily until the total amount of

officers and others is nearly 51,500,000.

The Mayor disclaims any intention of de

tions are true or not. The ground for the

iu the Mayor's own language: "That the
efficiency of the police system be not im

have declined to expedite the trial of the
cases which would prove or disprove the
Suspension is ordered "Until ample time

his old operatives.
The veteran talked coolly, but bitterly.
He said: "I have known for a long time

upon the Mayor to remove me for political
reasons.. For days I have been receiving
calls from men high in Bepublican councils
who have urged as areason for my retirement

and the divekeepers to the administration.
A POLITICAL PROPOSITION.
"I was told that if I would consent to
retire I would be retained on the salary list;
that I would not be removed; merely retired
on pay. It was represented that this was a
move in the interest of the party.
"I replied," said Mr. Bonfield grimly,
"that if the party had su,nk so low that it
required my sacrifice in order to get the
patronage of the Socialists, the gamblers,
the divekeepers and crooks, it ought to go
down. I informed these men that attacked

resign with or without pay, or with any
amount of pay."
Mr. Bonfield stopped talking for a min

seemed strange lor tne juayor to taice up
charges after once refusing to do so. "Why,
I was told," said the Inspector, "that if I
would withdraw until after the election for
Mavor I would be reinstated in my present
position, I refused to even consider it."

The Times to-morrow will say: The Dolice
department primarily, and the law-loving citi

much cause for congratulation. Bonfield,
Schaack and Loewenstein are no longer in con

has marked their dismissal, but after all it was
only the deferment of the inevitable. Bon
field, Schaack and Loewenstein will make
room for other and better men.
At the bar of public opinion they have been
tried and the verdict has no uncertain sound.
In the contest which has resulted in the official
decapitation of this triumvirato, the Times has
been the instrument only of the people, and it

and he says they have been exceedingly
fruitful. Recently, at the close of one of
the meetings he noticed a young and pow
erfully built stranger in one of the seats
after the others had gone. The stranger ap
proached as soon as he caught Dr. Inglehart's
eye and asked to be allowed to talk to him
for a few minutes. The clergyman told him
he would be at liberty in a half hour, and
after he was through with a business meet
ing he found the man waiting for him.
They walked together toward the clergy
man's house, and he had to urge the
stranger to speak.
Finally the latter blurted out: "I am a
burglar. YeS, I am a burglar, and I came
from New York to break into a house here
to-night. Why I went into yonr church I
do not know, but what you said to-night
has impressed me so that I want to lead a
better life. . I think I have found peace, but
I want to "talk to you. I think it is my
duty to confess to some good man. That's
the reason I waited for yon." To show his
sincerity, the burglar unbuttoned hid coat,
and, getting out a jimmy and a heavy re
volver, asked the clergyman to takethcm,

Dr. Inglehart reluctantly took the tool
and weapon, and he has them yet. He then
talked more freely to the young man, and
learning his history, he interested himself
in his case. At the young man's request he
wrote to his parents, and received from them
a kinHly and well-written letter, begging
him to send their boy home. The young
man was sent home and Mr. Inglehart is
certain of his reformation.

Allegheny City Thinks She Is Safely Fixed
In the Third Class Tho Inter
municipal Bill Still Threat
trKOM A STAFF COERESrONPENT.
Harbisbueg, February 6. The dark
clouds that have been gathering thickly
over Allegheny's municipal legislation at
the State Capital broke apart slightly to
day when "W. B. Eodgers, who for 18 years
was Solicitor of the city, arrived on the
Lscene. Mr. Eodgers talked to some of the
Allegheny Representatives, and this after
noon went before the Municipal Corpora
tions Committee of the Senate to give the
members the benefit of his views and make
some very important suggestions.
Mr. Eodgers' theory is that the decision
of the Supreme Court on the case of Savage
and the city of Reading simply upset the
constitutionality of the clause making it
optional with cities whether they accepted
more than the first 14 sections of the act.
The conclusion from this was that the whole
act would fall if it came to a test, but what
little is known concerning the recent re
versal by the Supreme Court of the former
decision seems to leave the act of 1874 in
tact and in good working order. Assuming
such to be the case, Mr. Rodger said it left
Allegheny in good shape tor the present.
Had the optional clanse of the act of 1874
been finally decided unconstitutional, leav
ing the rest of the act operative, its provi
sions would have been forced on Allegheny,
which had never accepted more than the 14
sections she was forced to take in common
withfOther cities. Allegheny is therefore
left as she desires to be, unless the inter
municipal bill passes.
Mr. Eodgers' first proposition to the com
mittee was that the various third-class cities
content themselves for the present with the
act of 1874 and let the inter-municipal bill
fall There were vigorous objections to this,
however, from cities that organized under
the act of 1887, one, at least, of which had
never accepted the act of 1874.
This proposition was negatived andllr.
Eodgers then made two other propositions,
which were accepted. The first was that an
amendment be made to the municipal bill
making the acceptance of its provisions
optional. The other was an amendment
striking out that provision of the Dill which
repeals the special charters and laws of the
cities to be governed by the provisions of
Senator Eutan indorsed this way out of
the dilemma, and with these amendments
made Allegheny will not be forced to accept
the inter-municipal bill until she has an op
portunity to further consider what is for her
best interest. "Without these amendments
she has forced on her the new legislation for
There is much uncertainty yet, though,
as to just what is the decision of the Su
preme Court Its effect on the particular
case of Savage and the city of Reading is
well understood, but until the opinion is
filed its constitutional effect is not
apparent, and may be different from
Mr. Eodgers' theory of it. The justi
ces, it is said, refuse to make any state
ment other than that from the Bench, and
one gentleman said he believed the Court;
had put the matter in its present uncertain
shape to be in a position to knock out the
act of 1874 in case the inter-municipal bill
Another gentleman asserted that when off
the Bench, Justices of the Supreme Court
had said the Constitution did not contem
plate any division of cities into classes, but
instead a general law applicable to all.
leaving them to a very large extent free to
legislate for themselves. In this case the
status of all cities is in constant peril.

FB03I A STAFF COEBESPOXDEST.l
Habrisbubg, February 6. The Kail
road Committee heard arguments to-day on
the bill introduced mainly for the purpose
of permitting the Junction Kailway to cross
the property of the Allegheny Valley Bail
road. There were six speakers in favor of
the measure, the first being "W. B. Eodgers,
attorney for the Baltimore and Ohio, Pitts
burg.and "Western and Junction Eailways.
His partner, John McCleaves, was the fifth
speaker, and the sixth and last was Presi
dent Callery , of the Pittsburg and Western
Kailway. The second and third speakers
were "William Mctcalf and Campbell B.
Herron, Pittsburg, manufacturers, and the
fourth was Thomas M. King, ex-Vice Presi
dent of the Baltimore and Ohio, who is
President of the Junction Kailway.
The arguments covered a wide range, in
cluding the justice of the principle involved
in the grant of eminent domain to one com
pany over the property of another not neces
sary to the conduct of the corporate business
of the latter. The needs of the manufac
turers and the general public in the par
ticular case of the Junction Kailway were
gone into at length and it was made quite
plain to the committee how, without some
such bill, the existing railroads entering
Pittsburg can and do control all the ap
proaches to and exits from the city. A
strong appeal was made to the committee to
take action that would prevent monopoly of
the transportation business of important
cities. Mr. McCleaves made the strong
point that Pennsylvania is the only State,
as far as he knows, that does not permit
what the bill aims at.

County Commissioners' State Convention,
with the idea that they would tend to a
large reduction of the costs of the several
counties, in some of them from $10,000 to
$15,000 annually. One of these bills pro
posed the repeal of the act of 1887, relative
to witness and District Attorney fees, which
law, it was maintained by the County Com
missioners, not only increased the pay of
witnesses but greatly added tothe costs of
counties by encouraging a multiplication of
indictments. The other bill of Senator
