.There is probably more interest being
centered in the formation of the Allegheny
County Baseball League than the majority
of baseball enthusiasts hare any idea.
There are four clubs needed to make the
league complete and there is a plethora of
applicants. Bo enthusiastic are the appli
cants about being organized that there is
considerable talk about organizing another
league among the rejected duns. There is
also a desire to make the county league oqe of
12 clubs instead of B so that the applicants for
membership will not be disappointed. Of
course all this shows how popular the national
Came is in and about Pittsburg, although it
may also show that a spirit of rivalry exists
that may develop into unpleasant dimensions.
An official of the county league made the fol
lowing statement regarding the matter last
evening. Be said:
"Our important meeting will he held Mon
day night and by all means we desire that the
entire matter be placed clearly before the
thousands ot people interested. The action of
the Allegheny County League m limiting the
number of clnbs to eight, to compose the
above organization for the season '89 has
been severely criticised on all sides and pres
sure has been brought to bear from various
points to have the officials of the league call
another meeting before February IS and have
the league re-consider its decision and fix the
number of clubs at 10 or 12. instead of eight.
FOE A SPECIFIC PURPOSE.
"The preliminary meeting on February 5 was
called for the specific purpose of fix
ing the number of clubs to com
pose the league, as it was deemed to be a very
important question. The matter was thor
oughly discussed, and after due deliberation
eight clubs was decided on without one dis
senting voice. The action of the league in this
matter is absolute and final and cannot be re
voked, and in view of the fact tnat this organi
zation is only following in the footsteps of both
the National League and American Associa
tion infixing tLeir membership at the same
number of both these famous organizations, it
seems to me that everything points that their
action was a wie one.
The arranging of a schedule is always a bng
bear, and an j one who has wrestled with that
knotty problem and endeavored to arrange a
series of games between ten clubs, will auDre-
ciate the action of the connty league in re
stricting their membership to eight clubs. It
is the desire of the league to have a series of
four games be'ween every club, and if the
membership wee increased to ten it would be
impossible to do this, for the length of the sea.
son will not permit more than 2S games, as the
games will only be scneduled on Saturdays.
Then again the Allegheny County League is

does not intend to open wide its arms to every
club who may offer themsch es as members. It
has a certain amount of dignity to uphold, and
any club that is admitted at the meeting on
Monday evening will have to present its stand
ing, prospects, eta, in a manner that will leave
no donbt in the minds of all those present that
it will make a creditableraember of the league.
"In regard to the formation of another county
league by disappointed applicants, I would say
let them form a similar organization it thev
can, it is so easy to do as they say, there is room
enough for two such organizations in this big
city. A threat of this kind will not deter an
association of such good standing as the
county league from following out a course of
action which they have determined on.
GOOD TEMPEB SESIBED.
"However, we sincerely hope that the election
will take place without treading on anybody's
toes, and if certain clubs do get left we hope
that they will accept the results with that
amount of good grace expected from all gen
tlemen interested in baseball principally for
the love of it. It is certain that all clubs ap
plying for membership In the county league
cannot be admitted, and depend upon it those
giving the best security and prospects will be
the ones admitted. Favoritism or anything
like it will have nothing to do with the selec
tions made. Business only will prompt the
action of those who have the power to act."
Regarding the election of President the
speaker was not inclined to say much. There
is a strong desire to have Sir. McCarthy re
main in office for another year. He may do so
but he is wishfnl to resign. The name of a
prominent newspaper man and that of a voung
business man have been mentioned for the
piace, ana ii jir. jcv;artny really declines to be
re-elected one of the gentlemen above referred
to will be choen. Altogether it is safe to say
that the meeting will arrive at a harmonious
The latest about the four clnbs likely to be
elected to make the league complete is to the
effect that Emsn orth. Sewickley and the Etna
Stars are sure. The fourth choice rests be
tween the W. J Kuehnes and the Uaklands.
There has Jgen some doubt about the lattei
club securing grounds and this has given rise
to a notion that the club will not apply for
membership. Mr. Rineharr, secretary of the
club, however.called at this office and made the
following business like statement: "We can
get grounds," he said, "if we are admitted to
the league. We will certainly get as good
grounds as any club applying that has not
grounds already. We will aUo have a good
team. We alrcadv have Neues and Bevel, of
also expect to have Newell, the local pitcher of
some rtpute. W have grounds on which we
can practice; the best grounds in the city, bnt
we can get no security from the Schenley
estate that will insure us to put up a fence. If
we inclose the giounds the estate can take all
our buildings at the end of the year. We can
not get even a three year lease. We can get
the use of other grounds, however, if we are
admitted to the league."
IT WASN'T A DRAW.
What the Chicago Authorities Think of the
Chicago, February 15. 'That fight was the
stlffest thing I ever saw," Parson Davies said
to-night. "I wouldn't walk across the street to
look at such a set-to. They did nothing but
dance and prance up to each other and away.
There was too much money 6n it; that was the
trouble. If it bad beenin a back room for a
purse there wouldn't be any draw."
"I couldn't help calling it a draw," Mike Mc
Donald said. "I had been up all night. I
hadn't had anything to eat or drink. I was
dead tired out, and 1 bad a real estate trans
action in Chicago to attend to. I thought some
ot taking them both into town ana having
them play it out in my office, but they wouldn't
come, uvervuoay was satisnea at tne a raw,
except the follows who paid nothing to get in
and bad no other place to go. It was a peculiar
John Kline, at whose dace in Belolt He-'
Auliffe trained, denounced the affair as about
the poorest he had ever seen,
"For two good men," he said, "to run away
from each other for four hours does not answer
my idea of a prize fight. I would'nt go to
another such an exhibition for 51.000.
Mr. Black, Harry Gilmore's backer, came all
the way from St. Paul to see the fight- He de
clared yesterday that he had seen better fights
at a bean-bag game. He is going back to St.
"I blame Myer."Mr. Blick said. "He led
only four times during the whole fight. Just
think of a man getting $3,100 for that!"
These were pretty near the sentiments of the
town. The Board of Trade men, who paid the
most ot the gate money that came from Chi
cago ibo professionals getting in through
their acquaintance with "the man at the door"
were sad. They shook their beads mourn
fully. There has not been so much sorrow on
the floor since Mr. Hutchinson put on the
gloves with the wheat market.
"I won't po to an v morn flp-hts" nnn of the
traders said. "They have got my last twenty.
As soon as I recover from the attack of pneu
monia that I got in the cold hall I'm going to
join the church."

The champion did not show the effects of the
fearful fracas. The scratch on his lip looked
as though it might have been made by the slip
of a razor.
THE CHICAGO STABLE.
Interesting News About Galen, Terra Cotta
nnd Other Good One.
Referring to some of the prominent race
horses at Nashville a correspondent of the
Although the track is in fine working condi
tion, none of the trainers have given their
horses any fast work as yet, the exercise being
confined to trotting and slow canters, and
many of the youngsters have not been shod.
Trainer Johnson, of the Chicago stable, is here
with a big string, his family numbering now
26 in all. Of these I think Galen looks the
best; he has a summer coat and appears almost
fit to do a little sprinting now. I do not think
he is any the worse of the touching he got for
the splints, and he will be a hard hor&e to beat
if he goes to the post in condition. Terra
Cotta has picked np w onderf ully, and is laying
on flesh every dav. "I want him to have inst
one hundred pounds more on him when
he starts," said Mr. Johnson to me, when
I noticed how stout he looked. "He
has run all his races when big." He has been
clipped, which gives him a rather strange ap
pearance. Speaking of Terra Cotta, I met
Colonel J. W. Guest, the former owner of the
horse, yesterday, and in the course or conver
sation asked him what he thought of the chest
nut horse. "Well," said he. "I have nine now
In training, and I will give them all for Terra
uoita, even trade. I tnink that much of him."
Of course, I won't undertake to say how much
of this "goes." for I think Mr. Guest rates his
colt Heron pretty highly, but anyhow I know
he considers Mr. Hankin's horse one of the
best in the country. Little Minch, of the same
stable, looks as well as I ever saw him, whether
remaining at the post or breaking a record;and
Egmont as hearty as a prize fighter out of
work. There are some well-bred looking 2-year-olds
in the string, and if looks and blood
will do anything they ought to be heard from.

after they entered !the ring, and then Myer
proceeded to save hie backers;' which he did iu

tation with mone v men, and he has done so, but
he can't whip McAu)iiIe all the same."
MAT GET SOME CASH.
The Assignees of the Farmers and mechan
ics' Bunk Win Meet With a Committee
of the Drposltori To-Day.
The assignees of the defunct Farmers and
Mechanics' Bank will hold a meeting this
morning in conjunction with a committee of
the depositors, for the purpose ot discuss
ing the advisability of paying the depositors
a part of their money.
There is about $50,000 cash in the bank,
and inasmuch as Mr. G. H. Meyer, Presi
dent of the German American Insurance
Company, yesterday bought the bank prop
erty for nearly 535,000, the assignees have
now about$90,000 on hand.
Mr. J. H. Sorg, President of the bank, in
a conversation with a Dispatch reporter
last night, said:
I am anxious to show the depositors that we
are more than willing to help them to get their
money, and in spite of the talk which has been
indulged in against cs we really had not the
Dower nor the means to do anything before
now. But since the bank building, which was
an eiepnant on our nanas, nas neen disposed
of, we have aboutenough ready cash to pay the
people at least one-third of their deposits.
However, our attorney advises us not to pay
out anything yet, because be says that the pay
ing in installments Incurs a great deal of extra
and unnecessary outlay. But I dare say we
shall be able to make an arrangement at the
meeting to-morrow morning, which, I hope,
will be satisfactory to all.
To show the depositors that we are open and
honest with them, I am going to ask Mr. H. C.
Gearing and four other gentlemen of the de
positors' committee, to be present.

Two Western Fighters Have a Desperate
Bare Fist Battle.
Chicago, February IS. James Fleming and
John Morgan, two local pugilists, fought a
bare knuckle battle this morning in a barn
near this city. The purse was $1,000 in addition
to a $250 gold watch. At the beginning of the
fight Morgan had a little the best of it.
In the eighth round Morgan got in several
good blows, but in return received like punish
ment that made him weak, and he was fast
losing when the round closed.
Two more rounds followed without either
man doing much work. In tbeelercnthand
last rouna, Morgan seemed determined to win
or lose with a final effort. He attacked his op
ponent viciously, but ineffectually. His vicious
lunges were met with well directed blows on
the face and neck. As the round neared a close
Fleming .aw an opportunity to get in a knock
out blow, and put it in very nicely. Morgan
dropped senseless, and when the twelfth round
was called he was unable to answer to it.

statements of the Shea party, say that there is
plenty of money behind Ridge, were he in

Shea. Ridge's backers further state that if
the Shea people desire to make a match they
should put up a forfeit.
Representative Stewart Criticises the Grade
Testerday the Legislature adjourned until
next "Wednesday to give the members an
opportunity to vote. Quite a number of the
"Western Pennsylvania Representatives 're
turned last night. In the party were Henry
Hall, of Mercer; Dr. Donaldson, of "Wash
ington; Dr. McCulIough, Messrs. Lafferty,
Stewart, Morland, "Weaver, Senator Steele
and Reading Clerk Baker. Commenting
on the grade crossing-bill, Mr. Stewart said:
I think the bill is defective in some respects.
It provides that in cities where the roads are
already built, the city shall bear one-half the
expense in constructing the elevated tracks. If
a new road is laid the company will have to pay
iue wi iuuue. l uie uui is passea, many 01
the cities will not be inclined to stand the
enormous outlav.and the result will bn that thn
good effects of the bill will be lost I think
this would be true of Pittsburg and Allegheny
if it became a law.
I would also like to see boroughs and towns
included in the measure. I know lots of dan
gerous crossings in the country that ought to
be protected. A bridge over the track would
answer the purpose, and it could be done for a
small outlay of money.
