GENERAL SPOETLNG KEWS OP THE DAT
There is now a strong probability ihat
Joseph A. Huggins, the famous rifle shot
of this city, will secure an important match
at last. What is deemed a ioeman worthy
of his steel has loomed up in Wellsburg, O ,
at least there is a cool and honest 11,000 for the
Captain R.S. Oakes. who for years has been
in the employ of Joseph Walton fc Co., arrived
in the city from Wellsburg yesterday, and pro
ceeded to the shooting gallery of Mr. Slapnack,
on Smithfield street, specially prepared to match
a Mr. Applegate, of Wellsburg, to shoot Hd;
gins for $50C or $1,000 a side. The Captain has
never been known as a bluffer or anything like.
He is well stocked with this world's wealth and
means business every time. He soon made
known his mission to Mr. Slapnack, and, pro
ducing a checkbook briefly, stated that the
Wellsburg people had heard great reports
HUGGIXS AS A RIFLE SHOT,
and they thought that Mr. Applegate could
beat him. At any rate. Captain Oakes stated
his willingness to put up a forfeit of $250 to
bind a match.
Mr. Slapnack was just as willing to match
Mr. Huggins, but hesitated in doing so until
the litter's consent could be obtained. Mr.
Huggins unfortunately was at the Pittsbnrg
Rifle Club shoot, and could no: be seen before
Captain Oakes left forborne. The Captain,
however, definitely stated that his challenge
would remain open for two weeks, as it was
made in good faith. He left his address so
that Mr. Slapnack of anybody else could ar
range a match as spcediy as possible.
Z Mr. Huggins was seen by the writer last
evening and questioned regarding the chal
lenge. He said: "I have no doubt but that the
challenge is made in good faith. While I'm
not inclined for the public to think that I'm
breaking my neck for a match I'm perfectly
wilting to accommodate Mr. Applegate for
SL000 a side. I can guarantee him a match for
that amount. I will shoot him 100 shots at 200
yards at the regular eight-inch target; or, I will
shoot him 100 shots at 1U0 yards at a four-inch
target. I will also consent to shoot him under
AST EEASOJfABLE CONDITIONS;
that is. "any .fair conditions under which any
body else contests. I am willing that the match
take olace on any neutral grounds. 1 think he
cannot object to my terms.
"However," continued Mr. Huggins. "it is
surprising the number of challenges I receive.
Many of them are what would be called bluffs'
and some are ridiculous. People will come
into my gallery and offer to shoot me three
shots at a 200-yard range for $100. These are
simply absurd challenges. A contest of 100
shots will prove who is the better man. because
in a match of that kind skill has a chance. I
hope that Mr. Applesrate's challenge Is lived
up to by the party behind him."
Mr. Applegate is a comparatively unknown
man here, hie has, however, been known as a
rifle shooter by patrons of that sport for many
Tears. In 1577 he
aeieatea Jur. uuggins in a
To-rard contest by two points,
then he has taken Dart in
contests in the neighborhood of
bnrg. His records have leen so good
that it is understood a syndicate has been
formed at Wellsburg to back him against Mr.
Huggins. The latter can secure any amount
of backing in this city; in fact, one gentleman
last night offered to stand 500 in hi stake.
The indications are that a match between the
two gentlemen will be made. If it is, the con
test will certainly be of great importance, be
cause the fame of Mr. Huggins is international.
If Applegate or anybody else can defeat the
Plttsburger, the shooting will be great, and an
enormous amount of money would go out of
Gettlnc n Surprise Ready.
A reporter called at Tim Keefe's office
yesterday and asked him if he would take part
in the games against the Brooklyn club. "Yes,"
said he, "if I sign by that time."
"When do you expect to sign?"
"Well, not before the meeting, of the Ball
Players' Brotherhood, anyway. The brother
hood will meet on Tuesday next, and the out
come may be a surpriseo some people. I see
that the sporting papers claim that everything
is now settled and the men satisfied. Such is
not the case. Although there may be no out
ward show of trouble, there is a deep under
current which is likely to cause no end of
trouble at any time. Everything may be fixed
up all right, but I doubt it. I expect Ward on
Friday ur Saturday, and we will go over the
matter together before the meeting." Xfew

The stakeholder in the match between Pat
Klrley's dog Napoleon Jack and J. Pembleton's
Nip, yesterday returned each man his money.
Kirley claimed all the stakes, but the stake
holder, to prevent any trouble or litigation on
the matter, refused to allow his claim. Kirley
then offered to fight his doe against Nip in
private for any amount of money, but the offer
was refused. It is stated that Nip and the
man who brought him here from England will
return to that country next week.

1ST CABIE TO TITS DISFATCR.1
Glasgow, March 21 Copyright The
special train carrying the American base
ball teams pulled into the Caledonian rail
way station at 6:50 A. 21., arriving on time
despite the fierce snowstorm which raged
from the time they left Bradford. It broke
the telegraphic communication, and neces
sitated a change of route via Greenfields in
stead via Micklehurst During the four
hours while the train was in the depot at
Bradford last night hundreds of men and
women braved the storm to come to see the
train. At Huddersfield and other stations
that were passed about midnight, many people
gathered to see it. The special train was looked
on as an extraordinary event in railroad travel
ing. Such a thing as travelers living on a train
a week is nnheard of.
The interest in Glasgow far exceeded that of
the English towns. No dining room car has
ever before been seen in Scotland and the two
new ones attached to the ball players' special
train bave been the object of great curiosity.
From the early hours of this morning the depot
platform was crowded with men, women and
boys who peered into the windows and scrutin
ized everything and everybody closely. The
photographs of the teams on the Sphinx, in the
Coliseum, and at Kensington and other places,
which had been posted on the windows were
surrounded by an admiring crowd. A fair esti
mate places the number of people who visited
the station at between ,30,000 and 10,000, large
numbers coming in on the trains. The storm,
fortunately did not reach Glasgow, and the
weather was clear, though a trifle cold for
baseball. There was a large crowd at the
depot when the players left for the grounds.
Thev fourjd the grounds of the West-of-Scot-land
Cricket Club the dryest and in the best
condition of any they have seen since arriving
in Great Britain, but there were no seating ac
commodations. Three thonsand well-dressed
people, including many ladles, paid a shilling
to stand up and witness the sport. At the
usual games here only a half shilling is
charged. As many more were on the outside
of the inclosure, the fence being low and the
boards wide apart, allowing the tree-peepers a
The game was a well-played one, though one
sided. The spectators were rather cold and
critical, but applauded the clever fly catches
and strong batting, of which there was an
abundance. Out of deference to the English
desire for plenty of batting, the pitchers did
not exert themselves in the matter of speed,
depending more particularly on deception and
slow balls. Crane and Baldwin were the
twirlers, and the former was by far the most
effective. Only six bits were made from his
delivery. Only seven innings were played to
decide the contest, the score then standing:
All-Americas, 8: Chicagos, 4. Two additional
innings were then played. In which All
Americas made two runs. The batting of the
All-Americas was decidedly the feature of the
game, they scoring 13 hits with a total of 19.
The work of Earle, Crane and Fogarty was
most noteworthy in this respect, each of the
two first making a two and a three-bagger and
the last named three singles. The fielding was
good on both sides, especially the fly catching
of Fogarty and the backstop work of Earle.
Healy played shortstop, and he did it wilL
Here is the score of the game by innings:
All America 2 1 0 2. 1 2 0-8
Chicago 2 0 0 0 10 1-4
Earned runs, 3 each; hits. All America 13,
Chicago 6; errors, Chicago 3, All America 2.
This evening the clubs visited the Grand
Theater, saw Osmond Tearle in "King Lear."
The house was crowded, and the band played
American airs amid great enthusiasm. After
the performance the boys were tendered a re
ception. The teams leave at midnight for
Manchester, where they play to-morrow. In
the evening they will be banqueted.

The Herron Hill Gnn Club's Brunot Island
Elmer Shaner and other members of the
Herron Hill Gun Club were at Brunot's Island
yesterday laying ont plans for the club's new
grounds there. Excellent shooting boundaries
were mapped ont and the site selected for a
commodious and handsome club bouse. It is
intended to make the grounds equal to any in
the State. Now that tne plans have been defi
nitely laid out work will be commeuced at once
to have the buildings erected.
The members of the club expect that this
will be a busy season for them. There will be
several big tournaments and probably some
special contests between teams of the various

They Allege Thnt They Were Treated In a
rSFECIAL TELEGIIAM TO Tin DISPATCH.1
Braqdock, March 21. Four boys who
ran away from the Soldiers' Orphan
Home, at TJniontown, were picked up to
day by the Braddock police. Their names
are Samnel Beam, James Hart, James Mit
chell aud John McWilliams. The three
first named are in their 15th year, and
McWilliams is two years younger. Mr.
Charles Passavant, connected with the
home, arrived at' Braddock this afternoon
and took the boys back.
The -boys told a singular story to the
police, alleging ill treatment at the home.
They said that the order given some time
ago to increase the amount of food has not
been obeyed. Instead of receiving more
they get less, and frequently do not get
enough to eat. Beam said they were sub
jected to all kinds of abuse. On more than
one occasion, he said, he had been whipped
with a broad hickory paddle until the
blood .streamed down his legs, and the
marks of the welts stayed with him for da vs
This punishment, he said, was inflicted
for talking at the table. While he was
being put through this course of treatment
his hands were tied behind his back. All
the boys coincided with him when he re
lated this story.

ANXIOUS FOR SPOILS.
Now Tork Politicians Grumbling at
the New Administration.
IT MOVES TOO SLOWLY FOR THEM.
Notwithstanding They Are Getting
Cream of Everything,
THE! BTAKD OUT FOR THE EARTH.
The Guillotine Getting in Eeadlness at the Brooklyn
New Tork continues, as ever, the bane of
the administration. Already the grumbling
and mumbling of disgruntled politicians is
heard all over the State. The reason for it
all is that President Harrison isn't consid
ered by "the boys" to have "got a move on
him" yet. He is too slow for them.
New Toek, March 21. If President
Harrison does not hurry up and do some
thing decisive he will find "the boys" 'be
ginning to say he is trying to imitate Mr.
Cleveland in all the dreadful things the
New York warriors accused him of doing
at the opening of his administra
tion. Bad as the suspense in New
Tork is, the respectable and highly-culi-vated
element that had dominated the party
in the now debatable ground in Kings county
think tbey are in a far worse plight. It is un
derstood that ex-Senator Albert Daggett, who
might becalled the Johnny O'Brien of Brook
lyn, has already been offered the control of
the naval patronage, but wants the federal
weighing contract, in which he made a for
tune under John Sherman. T. B. Willis,
who managed the last campaign, wants to
ne naval omcer. John x. JUcnane, the ex
Coney Island Democrat, has to be well
taken care of, and so does "Mike" Dady.
WILTj take 'most anything.
And then "Judge" John Rooney, who
nolens volens fastened himself on the party
as an "Irish leader" last year, thinks he
can be trusted with whatever is left. The
"Judge" is solid with Blaine, and inter
ested with John C. New in an elec
tric light scheme. In all these arrange
ments no room is assigned for such Repub
licans as ex-Mayor Low and the class he
represents, and who were supposed to be the
very marrow of genuine Kings countvKe
publicanism. New York well sustains her
reputation of being the bane of the national
administration, irrespective of politics, be
cause of her factional disputes. .And as if
these local troubles were. not enough, the
Legislature is piling on the agony by its
course in trying to defend the shameful
ceiling job and punish the newspaper corre
spondents who were mainly instrumental in
exposing the corruption.
NAVY TABD SPOILS.
The initiatory measures of preparation
for the rapid work of the political guillo
tine at the navy yard have been in a very
quiet way on foot for sometime. The Dem
ocrats are resigned, to the fate that
will overtake them about April 1.
New York, it is thought, will come
in for the usual one-third of the navy
yard patronage, while Kings county will
apportion the remainder. The policy to be
followed in making the changes will be the
removal first of the Democratic foremen,
for the reason that the "workingmen"
must be taken care of first, since they can
not afford to wait, as those who are seeking
clerkships and other soft berths can do.

Bkookltot, N. Y., March 21. James B.
Littell is suing Nettie F3. Inttell, in the
Supreme Court, for absolute divorce, and
to-day Lawyer George F. Elliott, in op
posing the motion for alimony and counsel
lees pending the suit, presented an affidavit
made by the plaintiff. It sets forth that the
supposed 12-year-old child of the couple was
not there offspring at all, and that the de
fendant had told him under oath that while
he was absent she had a new-born babe
smuggled into the house, sent for a nurse
and doctor, and deceived the plaintiff by
representing that the child was hers.
He also deposed that his wife had led a
very-rapid life for several years, was a con
stant attendant at the race tracks and an
inveterant poker player, and that her diarv
showed her winnings and losses. Lawyer
Dailey, on behalf of Mrs. Littell, said it
couldbe shown that she was the victim ofa
conspiracy, and asked for time to answer
her husband's allegations.
HER TROUBLE DROVE- HER MAD.

of Killing Her Children.
tSFECXAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.1
New Yobk, March 21. Mrs. Wilhel
mina Lebkuechner, who has been on trial
before Judge Gildersleeve for a week,
charged with murdering her children,a year
ago, at 528 "West Twenty-sixth street was

defendant had sufficient control of her reas
oning faculties to form a criminal intent.
The jury retired, and in ten minutes re
turned with a verdict of not guilty. The
jury had stood nine for acquittal and three
lor conviction from the first. The three for
conviction, after the visit of the jury to the
courtroom, immediately neut over to the
majority. Mrs. Lebkuechner displayed not
the slightest emotion at the verdict.
CHARGED WITH CONSPIRACY.
The Salt Brought Against Members of the
Glass Blowers' Union.
Chicago, March 21. The Chicago Glass
Manufacturing Company began suit to-day
in the Supreme Court against seven mem
bers of the Glassblowers' Union, chareing
them with conspiracy. The glass' company
had several apprentices whose .contracts of
apprenticeship extended for a year or two.
These apprentices, It is claimed, wire in
duced to break their contracts with the
company and were given working cards as
journeymen glassblowers, but under as
Mr. Emory S. "Walker, the attorney for
the company, says some- of the defendants
have admitted that they induced the ap
prentices to break their contracts. The ap
prentices are now believed to be working as
journeymen at Ottawa. The damages asked
for by the company are $5,000.

Philadelphia, March 21. J. F.
Allen, a young man with several, aliases,
and his pretty 16-year-old wife Sadie, who J
were arrestea yesteraay Dy ueteciive ueorge
Smith, of Wanamaker's store, had a hear
ing to-day before Magistrate Pole on the
charge of having defrauded Mr. Wana
makeroutof clothing worth $85. Harry
Shuman, employed at the store, testified
how he had delivered the clothing at the
Girard House, and that the defendant had
given him the slip.
Mrs. Evelyn A. Monroe, an aunt of Sadie,
living at 32 West Thirty-first street. New
York, said that the girl's mother died when
the child was 2 years old, and she had raised
her. Allen was in the real estate business
at 479 Broadway, and Sadie obtained em
ployment there as a clerk. Two weeks'ago
she told her aunt that sbe was going to
marry Allen, but Mis. Monroe remonstrated
with her. The girl replied that if her aunt
did not consent she would run away with
Allen. Finally Mrs. Monroe consented,
and they were married by the Rev. Dr.
Houghton on March 7. On the following
morning Mrs. Monroe visited Allen's office
and found that he had fled. Sadie said that
Allen had forced her to do as she did by
beating and choking her.
Chief Wood said that he had information
that Allen had a wife and three children,
and asked that he be held for a further
heariug. The prisoners were held in $1,200
bail each for their appearance on Monday
next. Mrs. Monroe said that she would send
to New York for ball for Sadie, but she
would like to see "that scoundrel, Allen,"
sent to jail. Sadie fainted when about to
enter the van, and had to be lifted into it by

They Hold Up a Train nnd Go Throngh the
rSFZCIAI. TXLEGHAX TO TITS DISFATCH.1
Albuquerque, N. Met., March 21.
The east-bound Atlantic and Pacific express
was "held up" last night at Canon Diablo
by four men, who plundered the express
car. Express Messenger Knickerbocker
says that four men boarded the engine a
Canon Diablo station and leveled their
weapons at the engineer and fireman. One
of the men stayed on the engine while the
others took the fireman off. They then fired
several times in the air. Knickerbocker
had just made his exchange with the station
agent, and on hearing the shots closed the
doors, putting out the lights.
The fireman who was in the clntches of
the robbers then came to the door-of the
express car and knocked. Knickerbocker
asked who was there, and a response came
from the fireman. The agent then opened
the door when in walked three masked men.
One held a revolver at his head and the
others went through the contents ot the com
pany's express, taking what local traffic in
money "had been received by the agent
from Los Angeles, amounting to be
tween $2,000 and $3,000. Knickerbocker
says the first report relative to robbing the
passengers is incorrect, for the robbers took
to the plains after robbing the- express car.
NOT READY FOR A HANGING.
Governor Beaver Grants a Respite to the
tSrECIAt. TELEORAM TO TUX DISPATCH.!
Haebisbubg. March 21. Governor
Beaver this evening granted a respite to"
Mrs. whitelmg until April 24, owing to the
short time between the refusal of the Board
of Pardons to recommend the commutation
of her death penalty and the date fixed for
her execution. The respite to Mrs. White
ling was granted at the request of Henry D.
Paxson, who informed Governor Beaver
that Sheriff Krumbarr had not anticipated
the early decision made by the Board of
Pardons, and consequently he had made no
preparations for the hanging of the mur
deress. Mr. Paxson supplemented this informa
tion with the statement that Mrs. White
ling had supposed the board would com
mute her sentence to imprisonment for life,
and had never contemplated the' possibility
of her death on the gallows, and had conse
quently given no time to spiritual prepara
tion. For these reasons the Governor de
cided to postpone the ' execution of the
woman nntil the 24th of April.
PECULIAR BLOOD POISONING.
A lilt. Cnrmel Physician Suffering From a
rSPECIAL TELEOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.1
Mount Cabmei., March 21. Dr. Will
iams, ot this town, is suffering from a
strange injury which, it is feared by his
friends, may prove fatal. One of his
patients was a little girl suffering with
diphtheria. The case was a dangerous one,
and the doctor, in making a carelul exami
nation, thrust his finger down the little
sufferer's throat. It caused her to strangle
for. breath, and in her desperation she bit
the doctor's finger.
Several hours afterward the finger began
to swell. Every effort was made to check
it, but nothing seemed to have any effect,
and the next day the swelling extended far
up the arm. It gradually got worse, until
the doctor is now confined to his bed and is
in a precarious condition.

SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THIS DISPATCH.1
Lynn, Mass., March 21. Frank Fuller
ton, a schoolboy who disappeared mysteri
ously on June 11, 1887, and who has since
been mourned as dead by his family, re
turned home last evening, after having
made a circuit of the world. His recital
of his travels -is most interesting. He
walked to Boston over two years ago, over
the railroad track, and on arriving sought
the wharves. He shipped from Boston to
Philadelphia, thence to Baltimore, and
then crossed the ocean to Havre, from there
visiting Bouen and Paris, sailing up the
Mediterranean, and making a round of con
tinental an J British seaports.
The boy's explanation was that he was
possessed by an uncontrollable desire to see
the world. Young Fullerton's taste for the
sea is entirely cured.

NATURAL GAS SUPREME,
The Now Nitrogen Gas Is Abandoned nt the
Tesuvlns Iron Works.
Nearly two months ago it was stated in
The Dispatch that nitrogen gas, or what
is better known as steam blast and coal
slack, was to be' the future fuel in the Ve
suvius mill, Moorhead, Bro. & Co., at Sharps
burg. The new process was introduced in four
puddling furnaces, and at first it looked as
though there was a saving to the firm, which
was the main object in view.
The intense heat of the furnace, however,
would make it impossible to endure work dur
ing the summer months. It was also noticed
that it required longer time to make fonr heats
with this gas than it wonld to make five heats
with natural gas. and with the latter fuel, the
work is easier. It is stated that it also re
quired more ore to make a certain amount of
The project is said to have been a loss, and
this week the furnaces were again altered and
natural gas will be used instead of the new

of the Porter Foundry and Machine Com

March April May
Are the best months in which to purify yonr
blood, for at no other season does the system
so much need the aid ot a reliable medicine
like Hood's Sarsapanlla, as now. Daring the
long, cold winter, the blood become thin and
impure, the body becomes weak and tired, the
appetite may be lost. Hood's Sarsaparllla is
peculiarly adapted to purify and enrich the
blood, to create a good appetite and to over
come that tired feeling. It increases in popu

"Every spring for years I have made it a
practice to take from three to fire bottles of
Hood's Sarsaparilla. because I know it purifies
the blood and thoroughly cleanses the system

system that has been properly cared for by this
never-failing remedy." W. H. IiAWeesce,
