GOERAL SPORTING NEWS OF THE DAI
George Smith, the local sprinter, -was in
a talkative mood yesterday afternoon, and
when that is the case George can say many
interesting things. Probably he is one of
the most conscientious and intelligent first
class professional sprinters in the country.
He has had a very interesting experience
during the last ten or twelve months, and
certainly his statements yesterday were of a
kind, that not only afford interest, but con
siderable information. Dunns a conversation
with the writer, he said:
"Well, I have not left the cinder path yet hy
any means, although I am stickins to my South
side business very closely. Of course, I'm not
going to express an opinion about the moral
status of sprinting in this country at present,
but I want to mention one thing, viz., a recent
remark made or written by H. M. Johnson. He
is quoted as saying that the late crooked sprint
races had nothing to do with the Professional
Sprinters' Protective Association, simply be
cause that body did not appoint the pistol fixer.
ABOUT THE CROOKED MEN.
"What I want to know is, do members of that
affair arrange crooked races among themselves?
If they don't, we certainly need some explana
tion regarding the late races in which Johnson,
Davis and others have taken part.
"I am still disposed to to run another race or
two," continued -Smith. "I see that there is
f ome talk of a race between Wharton and
Bethune. If these two men run I think the
English colored man will win. He is a bic and
clumsy looking fellow, bnt he is speedv. He is
not fast, however, as many people think. He
is barely four yards better than even time, and
I think that is too fast for Bethune. AVharton
is not the runner that Harry Hutchens was; in
fact, I don't think that he can run as fast as
Harry Ghent. Really, I am somewhat in
clined to run Bethune myself. I don't say that
I tackle him in a 100-yard race, although at
that I might not take much the worst of it; but
I think I'm ready to go him laO yards for a
cood, honest stake. I don't make this remark
in a boasting spirit, but I make it because I
wantBethune and others to know that I'm
still in tho ring and ready for business if the
money is put up."
Smith was asked about one or two features
regarding the late Sheffield handicap in which
he was beaten. He said: "Well, there were
several things connected with that handicap
which! have never explained, l am confident
that I could hare beaten Rawson had 1 started
in the final heat, and I now state my reasons.
HOW SMITH TV AS TESTED.
"The gentlemanwho was working my commis
sion amnng the bookmakers was on friendly
terms with the party of Pico Walker, ily com
missioner met the Walker people and said he
had a man who would beat Walker, and it was
mutually agreed for both parties to back he
better runner between Walker and myself. Ac
cordingly we ran a trial on the quiet and I was
so much better than "Walker that the
handicap was deemed a certainty for
me. All the Walker money was, therefore, put
on me. and the betting was 5 to 4 on me azamst
the field Just before the handicap started. I
was put out, of course "by Wheeler, although I
beat him. Ranson only beat Walker in the
final by a few inches, and this proves con
clusively that I could have beaten Ranson.
"Wheeler being last in the final heat does not
prove anything because he was not trying. He
was not backed to win. and all that he got, ex
cept a few dollars lor fourth prize, was SlOi) for
beating me. The bookmakers gave him this, I
suppose. - Bnt Walker could nave won that
handicap had he had the side of the track on
which Ranson ran. Most assuredly bad their
paths been reversed Walker would have won."
George went on to say tbathedoesnot intend
to try for any more handicaps in England. He
also said a few words about the erroneous
notions some people have about the time of
sprinters. Said he: "A few daj sago I read a
letter written by Ed Crane, the ball player.
Crane had seen Samuels, the Australian sorint
er, run. and wrote home to the effect that'Sam
uels could run 100 yards, 6 yards better than 10
seconds, without any training. Now such talk
as this is ridiculous, and it would be just as
sensible on my part to say that I know aman
who can carry several hundred weight of lead
and jump over a four-story house. People who
talk so wildly, at least glibly, about this man
and other men running several yards better
than even time, know nothing about foot Vun
ning. Samnels can get a race either in this
country or England."
STANLEY STILL LEADS.
Fittabarger in Front Among the Fe
New Yoek, February 12. The women bicy
clists contending at Madison Sqnare Garden

John Loomis Returns and Resolves to Sell
Pool Ont West.
John Loomis returned from Denver, CoL,
yesterday, whero he had been looking after the"
prospects of opening poolrooms there. The
outlook is so encouraging that he has resolved
to start business there on April 1. He will sell
pools on running and trotting races and also on
baseball games. He will also open a book on I
the runners. He says that Denver is one of the
most enterprising places he has seen.
While Mr. Loomis was in Denver, he met
Bethune and Johnson, cfhe sprinters. It is un
derstood that they are out there to join a hose
team that will be entered for the great $20,000
contest arranged for next August.
Pirenzl Declared Oat.
New Yoek, February 12. The admirers of
Haggin's famous mare Firenzi will not have
the chance this year of seeing ber make as
grand an effort for the Suburban handicap as
she did last year, when she finished third, she
having not only been declared ont of the
Suburban, but also out of the Sheepshead Bay
and Bay Ridge handicaps. It is understood
that Matt Byrne thinks the weights at which
Firenzi was handicapped were too much, viz:
12S pounds each, and that be was sustained in
that opinion by Haggin.
W. H. Ottsman's Donnybrook has also been
declared out of the Suburban, Sheepshead Bay
and Bay Ridge handicaps.

AN INTERESTING CASE.
Contractors Enter Suit Against tbcPittsbnre
It seems as if the Pittsburg Athletic and
Cycling Association has entirely collapsed.
Yesterday Messrs. "Watson Sproat, through
their attorney, John D. Watson, entered suit
against the association for S500. Messrs. "Wat
son &. Sproat are contractors, and they erected
the grand stand and fences of the association's
grounds. It is claimed that the work has not
been paid for.
Attorney Watson has secured a full list of
the association's membership, and it is intend
ed to sue them all. This will make matters ex
ceedingly interesting, as there are some prom
inent young citizens in the association. The
membership does not exceed 100, and no one
will acknowledge any part of the debt.

A War Scare Causes a Slight Panic on the
DE LESSEPS CEUSHED BY THE CANAL.
Bonlaager the Boss Blowhari of This J&nelons
Bismarck is sick and mad. Neuralgia
preys upon bis body and bis active enemies
disturb bis mind. It is even stated tbat tbe
young Emperor Las snubbed him.but speed
ily apologized. DeLcsseps is a sad, old
man. The failure of the Panama Canal
has completely crushed him. The latest war
cloud has settled over the Afghanistan
boundary, and affects Russia. Eoulanger
is talking with a bravado that is quite re
freshing, while Floquet is struggling hard
to avert a crash tbat may give the man on
horseback the power he covets.
Berlist, February 12. Prince Bis
marck's attack of neuralgia is complicated
with rheumatism, want of appetite and in
somnia. He continues to work against the
advice of his doctors. His visits to the
Chancellerie are marked with frequent out
bursts of passion and other evidences of ex
treme irritability. Apart from his morbid
physical conditions, party intrigues aiming
to sap his influence with the Emperor,
worry the Chancellor more' than ever. Count
von "Waldersee, whom the ultra-Conservatives
hope to see succeed Bismarck at no
distant day, scored against the Chancellor
by getting the Emperor to assent to tbe stop
ping of the action against the Kreuz Zeitung.
A court report says tbat when Bismarck went
to the Schloss to protest that the action must
Eroceed, he was kept waiting a quarter of an
our in an ante-chamber; that in a fit of vio
lent rage he told Chamberlain Mirbach, that
the delay was an intentional insult arranged
By tho cabal against him, and that the Em
peror, hearing the broil, left bis room hur
riedly, apologized to the Chancellor, succeeded
in calming him and obtained his assent to the
abandonment of the prosecution. Bismarck,
if in sound health, would probably care little
for the enmity of the Ultra Conservatives. He
can afford to despise the "Waldersee clique,
but he fears losing his hold over the leaders of
the Government groups.
A significant inspired article in the Hamburg
jyacnncnien, ana quoted in tne norm uerman
Gazette, is cause of excited discussion in po
litical circles. The article attacks the National
Liberals for taking a neutral position in the
Geffcken debate and tor increasing apathy in
their support of the Government. The article
proceeds to ask whether the National Lib
erals are speculating on the speedy disappear
ance of tbe Chancellor and warns them that
anyhow it would be wrongtocountoa achange
favorable to them in either the internal or
the external policy of the Govern
ment, as Count Herbert Bismarck, although
not becoming the leading man of the State
with tbe full power of his father, would still
bold the reins of foreign affairs, while some
man with the programme of Waldersee or some
other hostile to the National Liberals might
pick up a part of the powers left by the Chan
cellor. If the leading motive of the article is to
rally the Government supporters in the Reich
stag around the Chancellor to assist in tbe
struggle against the court cabal it has already
met with a warm response. Privatelv the
Chancellor is receiving assurances of undimin
ished confidence coupled with enthusiastic ex
pressions of personal regard, all the more
fervent because allowance is made for his

- FliOQUET MAY FALL
Before the Parlslnns Cotnmenco to Revel In
i the Delichta of I ho Exhibition.
Paeis, February 12. The committee,
which the Senate has appointed to consider
the Scrutin d'Arrondissement bill consists
entirely of membei-s in favor of that system
of election. The issue of next Thursday's de
bate in tho Chamber of Deputies on the pro
posed revision of the Constitution is the sole
topic ot conversation in parliamentary circles.
The Ministerialists do not conceal their fears
of a defeat unless M. Floquet assents to a sys
tem of revision satisfactory to the Radicals,
who will not vote for revision except by a con
stituent assembly, while M. Floquet persists
that the revision must be partial and effected
by a congress ot the Senate and Chamber of
The Conservatives side with the Radicals In
demanding that the subject be referred to a
constituent assembiv, believing that the assem
bly would have a large Boulangist or Conser
vative majority. Whether M. Fioquet's pro
posal ortbe proposal of the Conservatives and
Radicals is carried tbe Senate is expected to
reject revision in any form as inopportune.
The Chnber of Deputies will then begia the
debate on the budget, on which subject it will
continue talking until the opening of the ex
hibition, when it will adjourn until the elec
tions in October. Tho defeat of M. Floquet
may causo a Cabinet crisis, but the Ministerial
ists are confident that there will be no disso
lution until autumn.
The-A'oriA German Gazette, commenting on
the passage of the Scrutin d'Arrondissement
bill in the French Chamber of Deputies, says:
"It seems self-evident that M. Floquet will not
play into the hands of the Boulangerists. But
the chief question is whether he will succeed
in keeping yesterday's majority for the debate
on the revision of the Constitution."
BOULANGEB IS TOO MODEST.

Paris, February 12. In an interview
General Boulanger said he would.probably
make an address in tbe Chamber of Depu

mand a dissolution of Parliament. He stated
tbat he bad no intention of contesting the seat
for the Department of Haute-Vienne. He
thought "M. De Freycinet was perfectly justi
fied in censuring Colonel Sonart, who had no
right to make such references in a public ad
dress to a regiment. Personally, however, he
approved Colonel Senart's action. General
Boulanger then said that if he came into power
he believed be could Induce England to evacu

between England and France. Ha appeared to
believe that his triumph would come after the

A PECULIAR ACCIDENT
Stops Business nt a Coko Plant and Throws
490 Men Out of Work.
ISrECIAI. TELEGBAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1
TJniontown, February 12. A peculiar
accident, one like ft having never been
known to occur in the coke regions, caused
a stoppage of all departments of the Youngs
town coke works to-day, and will keep the
works from running until next week. Re
pairs were being made to the track on the
slope, over a mile long, where the coal is
hoisted from the mines, when the huge cable
with some loaded cars caught in the track
and caused a wreck blocking the slope with
cars, the cable getting tangled and becom
ing immovable, the engineer knowing noth
ing of the trouble. Thj! sudden strain on
the hoisting engine was so great that it first
bent the large steel shaft into a circle and
then snapped it in two, but the cable, ow
ing to its great length and flexibility, never
broke. The company is crowded with or

(SPECIAL TELEGBAII TO TBS DISPATCn.1
Eeie, February 12. The session of the
annual encampment of the Pennsylvania
Department, G. A. K., opened with the
usual committee meetings. The North
western Association, comprising the north
western counties in Pennsylvania, held a
meeting this morning and decided to push
the claims of this section of the State for
recognition by the electipn of General D.
B. McCreary for Department Commander.
The Stewart men had been unusually busy
during the night, and to-day the McCreary
men were very much disheartened to learn
that "Weidersheim would not be presented
in the convention. This left the fight be
tween the Philadelphia and Erie candi
dates, and as the day wore away it became
evident that when tbe ballot was cast it
would hardly rise to the dignity of a fight,
although about 300 of the delegates will
stand by McCreary.
The snow storm lasted all day and the
parade was postponed. The weather has
settled down and to-night it is delightful,
and a large number of the delegates are out
in sleigh riding parties. Many are at the
Opera House attending the camp fire.
The attendance was augmented this morn
ing by the arrival of several hundred dele
gates and other G. A. B. men.
The address of welcome was by Judge
Galbraith and was responded to by Colonel
Harper, of Pittsburg.
Commander Magee then opened the an
nual encampment, and the reading of the
reports followed. At this juncture of the
proceedings one of the Erie Grand Army
men presented the Commander with a gold-
bound gavel, and Colonel Magee made a
The Legislation Committee's report on
Soldiers Orphans' Schools roused a long
drawn out debate on a technical point. Mr.
Brummell wanted to amend the committee's
report so as to extend the time for running
the schools indefinitely. Other delegates,
led by General Gobin, argued that the re
port should go to the Committee on Resolu
tions, and that view of the question pre
vailed. There will be some hair pulling to
morrow over the committee's report, no
matter which way the thing goes. "Wright's
men are here worfiing to save the syndicate
from humiliation by an adverse committee
report, and General Gobin and Judge
"White are determined that the department
shall suggest legislation which will remove
the orphan school stench from the nostrils of
A DECIDED DIFFEBENCE.
There is a strong sentiment in favor of
extending the time of" leasing the schools
beyond 1895. The "Wright men wjll con
tend to 'keep the present system irr vogue,
while the "Wagner, Gobin and "White com
bination is here to force the system under
the control of a commission. The commit
tee is holding a protracted session to-night
over the soldiers' orphans matter and
Wright's friends are making a terrific effort
to keep the committee from making a re
port that will reflect upon the syndicate.
"When the nominations opened this after
noon General Gobin presented the name of
Colonel T. J. Stewart for Department Com
mander, and Thomas Sample, of Pittsburtr,
seconded the nomination. Jndge "White, of
Indiana, and Dr. Flood, ot Meadville, pre
sented the name of General D. B. McCreary,
of Erie. The nominations for Senior "Vice
Commander are A. A. "Wasson, of York,
and J. V. Miller, of Lewisburg. The latter
is selling favorite to-night. The contest
for Junior Vice is anybody's fight. "Will
iam T. Gourle. of Reading; Colonel J. B.
Story, late of Butler, and now of Harris
burg; G. Gresser, of Allentown, and Frank
Saville are nominated.
A TKEEE-COENEEED FIGHT.
Dr. J. A. E. Beed, who was surgeon to
the One Hundred and Fifty-fifth 'Pennsvl
vania Volunteers, of Pittsburg, Dr. P. J.
Burchheid and G. B. Hatchkin, of Dun
cansville, have a three-cornered fight for
Medical Director. Eev. J. "W. Sayers had
no opposition for Chaplain, and was re
elected. The nominees for Counsel ot Ad
ministration were "Wm. Emsley, of 51; B.
L. Meyers, of 46; M. L. "Wagonseller, of
148; E. G. Sellers, of 8; J. F. Hunter, of 3;
B. Bluestein, of 196; L. "W. Shongel, of 94;
G. Aronson, of 160, and Wm. Druyer. of
167. There are 140 nominees for the 42 Na
tional Encampment delegation.
Balloting will commence at 9 o'clock to
morrow morning. The delegates were
counting on leaving for Philadelphia and
Pittsburg to-morrow night at 11 o'clock,
but the election and Soldiers' Orphan
School contest will be likely to hold them
until the next day.
There is a great deal of rivalry between
ladies of the Grand Army and the Woman's
Belief Corps, both of which are holding
their annual meetings here. The ladies of
the Grand Army, who commenced to agitate
the.scheme of establishing a widow's Home
two years ago, will present their report in
the Grand Army Encampment to-morrow,
and will ask a committee ot leading G. A.
E. men to unite with them as a commission.
The Woman's Belief Corps are also in the.
field with a resolution to support a home for
soldiers' widows and orphans, and ior indi
gent soldiers and their wives, and have
headed a committee with Colonel B. E.
Beath, General Williams, Colonel A. P.
Burchfield, Major Isaac Brown, John More
land, Mrs. Wittenmeyer, Mrs. Judge Mor
rison, of Smithport, and Mrs. Sies, of Pitts
burg, to carry ont the scheme.
The ladies of the Grand Army reported
an increase-of 13 circles, making 54, with a
membership of 2,316, an increase of 830.
They expended for relief $2,064 arid turned
over to the G. A. B. 51,097. The Woman's
Belief Corps, which is renresentorl hpm tnr
over 200 delegates, reports the number of
corps 131 and members in good standing
4,037. The amount expended bv them for

I scniched 28 years. Body covered with

as a baby's.
If I had known of the Cuticuea Seme
mes twenty-eight years ago, it would have
saved me $200 00 (two hundred dollars) and an
immense amount of suffering. My disease
(psoriasis) commenced on my head in a spot
not larger than a cent. It spread rapidly all
over my body and got under my nails. The
scales wonld drop off of me all the time, and
my suffering was endless, and without relief.
One thousand dollars would not tempt me to
have this disease over again.' I am a poor
man. hnt feel rich to be relieved of what some
of the doctors said was leprosy, some ring-

I went to two or three doctors, but no cure. I
cannot praise the Cuticuea Remedies too
much. They have made my skin as clear and
free from scales as a baby's. All I used of
them was three boxes of Ccttcura, and three
bottles of CtrncTTRA'RESOiVEST, and two
cakes of CrrnctrnA Soap. If you had been
here and said you would have cured me for
$200 00 you would have had the money. I
looked like tne picture in your book of psoria
sis (ptcturo number two, "How to Cure Skin
Diseases"), but now I am as clear as any per
son ever was. Through force of habit, I rub
my hands over my arms and legs to scratch
once in awhile, but to no purpose. lam all
