The American ball players did not attract
as much attention here as at Glasgow,
dining cars not being such a cariosity here,
bat several thousand people visited the
station daring the day to see the handsome
special train and the celebrated athletes.
The weather was the brightest yet enjoyed
in England. The sun shone pleasantly and
the air was brisk. The ball players were
extremely anxious to make a good im
pression here, as it is one of the foremost
cricketing sections of England. Tbey played
on the old Trafford cricket ground and de

scenes. Toasts to the Queen, Presidents Har

speeches and great enthusiasm. At the -close
of the banquet the entire party attended the

AN IMPORTANT CHALLENGE.
Carey Will Match Janeraont Against Any
Son of Grand Sentinel.
The- following Important challenge appears
In this week's Issue of tbe Horseman:
A short time since my attention was called to
a communication signed by S. A. Browne, of
Kalamazoo, wherein he states that a son of
Grand Sentinel can beat any stallion in Michl
gan. While I admire Mr. Browne's pluck and
enterprise, and have a high opinion of his judg
ment in horse matters, I nevertheless believe
that in this particular statement he has made
an error! I have delayed replying to the arti
cle referred to in tbe hope that some other
owner of the many fast stallions in this State
would respond, as I felt that there were other
owners, nerhaps more prominent, who would
undertake to decide the point which Mr.
Browne has raised, but as no one else has done
so, and believing that I have a faster stallion
than any son of Grand Sentinel, and in the
most friendly spirit toward Mr. Browne and the
interests he represents. I desire to hereby noti
fy him that I will match my 6-year-old stallion
Junemont, 2:18 against any entire son of
Grand Sentinel lor any reasonable sum, say
from 1,000 to J3.000, a race of mile heats, three
in five, to be trotted over Detroit or Chicago
tracks during the months of July. August or
September, 1SS9, provided Mr. Browne shall
signify hisacceptance of this proposition within
30 days from this date. J OHN Cabet.

THE PROGRAMME COMPLETE.
All Arrangements Made for the Games of
A letter was received yesterday from Walter
Spalding by Mr. AG. Pratt, of this city. Mr.
Spalding, in hialetter, gives some interesting
information about the teams now abroad. He
says that Ward will certainly play in all the
American games, and that the balance of the
players will remain together until the pro
gramme is carried out.
Following is a correct schedule of the games
arranged: April 8. New York; 9,J5rooklyn;10,
Baltimore; 12. Philadelphia; 13, Boston: 15,
Washington; 16, Pittsburg: 17, Cleveland; 18,
Indianapolis; 20, Chicago.
Extensive arrangements, says Mr. Spalding,
i 3 being made for the receptions at New York,
Philadelphia and Chicago. The New York
banquet will be held on April 8, and that at
Philadelphia on the 11th. Tbe teams will leave
Queenstown on March 28 on the Adriatic of
the White Star line of steamers. Tbey are ex
pected to arrive in New York on April 6.
THE COLONELS SOMEWHAT SLOW.
Ulnny of Them Fall to Report for Duty on
Louisyillx, Kt., March 22. Though all the
ball players were notified to be here yesterday,
Ewing, Vaughan, Stratton, Easterbook, Shan
non and Raymond failed to put in an appear
ance, and as yet have not materialized. Why
they have not yet arrived it cannot be told;
still, they are expected on every incoming
train. Stratton still demands $1,800 and no
Sunday games, and President Davidson is just
as firm against granting it. Browning has not
signed vet nor reported for practice, and has
been notified that he must practice at least two
weeks before he can draw pay. Hoffman, Kan
sas City's pitcher, is here practicing with the
boys, and is showing up finely. All preliminary
practice by the Louisville team will be bad In
the open field.
Advice to Horse Breeders.
Here are some well-taken points from a prom
Inent Englishman's lecture on horse breeding:
"I have always held that a stallion .ought not
to be in show condition at tbe end of the sea
son. It is detrimental to;the constitution and
procreative powers of the stallion to be fed up
like a fat bullock in early spring, for it is sel
dom such an animal gets many foals for the
first five or six weeks. Let any breeder put a
number of mares to such a horse which is daily
losing flesh, and an equal number to a stallion
that has been worked in tbe team. The latter
will not only leave his mares in foa! from the
first, but will thnve and improve, and he is In
better condition at tbe end of the season than
at the commencement, and the chances are he
will leave 30 per cent more foals, and, given
that the animals are equally well bred, tbe
stock of tbe latter will come with more mus
cular power and hardier constitutions. If this
be the case with the earlier date, I hold it to be
a suicidal policy to continue tbe overfeeding
during the season for tbe sake of winning a
prize at tbe summer shows."
Clara Bell Leads.
East Liverpool, o., March 22 The three
days' female walking match opened up last
night in tbe Fifth street rink. There were
seven starters. The score at 3:30 o'clock this
afternoon was: Clara Bell, 61 miles; Nora

Harvey, 49 miles; Mamie Wood. 43 miles; Jen

All tbe walkers are from Pittsburg except
Evans, who comes from Beaver Falls. The
race is for the championship of Eastern Ohio
and prizes as follows: First, 75; second, ScO,
and third. $25. Considerable betting is going
on, and Bell and Harvey are the favorites.
May Go to Mexico.
It may be that the Pittsburg team will make
a tour through Mexico next fall. A well
known patron of tbe club has recently traveled
through that country and is enthusiastic about
tbe good financial prospects of a Mexican trip.
He has mentioned the notion of such a tour to
President Nimick. and the latter seems to
think well of it. There are numerous large
cities that could be visited and the gentleman
referred to says that baseball would be a great
Shortstop Allen Arrives.
Allen, the new local shortstop, arrived in the
city yesterday. This is his first, visit to Pitts

He is a fine-looking young man and well built.
He talks very intelligently. During a conversa
tion last evening, he said that he expects to do
well. He is anxions to develop into a first
class player, and be is willing to take tne ad
vice of experienced men.
Big Enough to Win.

CLOSE TO POLYGAMY
Is the Offense Alleged Against Pretty
Young Mrs. Simon.
SHE IS CHARGED WITH BIGAMY,
Bat a Friend to Whom Elopement is
Familiar May Extend It.
SHE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND HER PLIGHT
A pretty little German woman was
brought to jail last night by constable
from Alderman Donghty's office, charged
with bigamy, the charges being made by
Albert Simon, son of "Vincent Simon, of
3350 Penn avenue. The, woman's correct
name would be hard to tell, as she is
charged with so much bigamy.
Mrs. Simon, or Schwinde, came to this
city from Germany about nine months ago,
and soon secured employment at the restau
rant of Vincent Simon, She could not
speak a word of English, but represented to
Mr. Simon that she was single, and by her
winning ways and ability to do everything
that came along in the way of work, won
her way into the elder Simon's heart to such
an extent that, being a widower, he pro
posed marriage to her. Ho was accepted,
and the pair went to Philadelphia in Jan
uary and were married.
Since then they have led a hapny life,
apparently, until, within the past few days,
domestic troubles began to arise which were
not lessened Jany by the intelligence that
came to Mr. Simon's son to the effect that
the young stepmother had -another husband
alive and well in Germany. Acting on
this intelligence, he entered the suit men
It is alleged that Mrs. Schwinde not only
has a husband in Germany," but that she
eloped from him with another man, who
paid her passage to this country and lived
with her until she secured employment at
Mr. Simon's restaurant.
She could not be made to understand her
position last night, and seemed to regard
the jail as a sort of hotel, for she was very
particular to inquire what sort of a room
she was to have in the building.
The case will come up for a hearing be
fore Alderman Dougherty next "Wednesday,
and the defendant is held in the meantime

Traction Company held a meeting yester
day afternoon; but, on account of the few
members present an informal talk was the
only thing done.
One of the gentlemen stated after the
meeting that they had closed J. contract with
the Pullman Palace Car Company for the
manufacture of 16 cars for their cable line.
These cars will be much like those used on
the Citizens' Traction line and will prob
ably have no separate department in the car

Of Coal Diggers Slay be Held Next Month
to Arrange a Wage Bcale.
A delegate contention of the newly con
structed division of N. D. A. 135, EL of L.,
composed of the railroad miners of "Western
Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio, was held
yesterday in Knights of Labor Hall, on
"Wood street. Master "Workman Paxon
presided, and delegates were present from
18 local assemblies, representing 60 mines.
The object of the meeting was to consider
the wage question, the offer of the diggers
to continue work at the present scale having
been rejected by the operators at the Colum
bus Convention. It was thought that a
strike would be ordered, but the delegates
were inclined to make another attempt to
settle the question, as the following resolu
tions adopted will show:
Whereas. It is agreeable to, the purposes of
the K. of L. to settle wage scales by reasonable
and conciliatory methods, and
Whereas, We deprecate the prospect of a
return to the barbarous method of strikes,
especially against those employers who have
shown a disposition lately to co-operate with
the miners in the maintenance of equitable
prices, for the mutual interests of themselves
and their workmen, and
Whereas, We do not believe tbat tbe miners
and operators are incapable of adjusting all
disputes by peaceable and common sense meth
Resolved. Tbat we urge upon the national
officers of ,N. D. A. 135, K. of L., to invite tbe
employers of all competing districts to unite
in a call for a national scale conference, to be
held on or about April 9 prox.
Resolved, Tbat all miners, organized and
unorganized, be requested to meet and elect
delegates to a conference, and that they be in
structed to elect four delegates from each
Stato with full power to negotiate with an
equal number of tbe operators, and construct
a scale that will give the workmen tbe best
compensation tbat tbe coal trade will justify,
to prevail for one year, beginning May 1, 1S89.
MUST THEY CUT WAGES?
Coke Operators Cannot Ran Their Ovens
at the Present Prices.
It is believed that the 1st of April will
see a general redaction in the wages ot the
coke workers, throughout the entire region,
instead of a strike on their part for higher
wages. About the best-price obtainable
this month for coke is 51 33 per ton for
foundries and $1 20 per ton for furnaces,
while it is asserted that a large coke-firm is
quoting to consumers at $1 10 per ton for
lurnaces, and small orders are being filled
at this price. The men at Bainey's works
are reported to bave had their wages re
duced this week, and other operators say
that at suclTprices, with bids tor April de
liveries coming in at lower figures, they
cannot run and pay the present wages.
Almost all the works in the region are
running four days a week. The Stewart
Iron Company's Beeson works are idle, the
men having been locked ont by the company
for tbe past two months in an effort to rid
themselves of obnoxious workmen. "Writs
are now in the hands of the Sheriff for their
eviction and it is likely some action will be
shortly attempted by the company. They
are buying coke to ran their furnaces at
Sharon, Pa., and it is understood that they
are anxious to start up, bat at a redaction
of wages. The men are reported to be as
anxious to get back to work as the com
pany is to begin running again.

tion with it. The product will be sold to

J. W. Moore & Co. deny that they Intend to
close down any of their coke ovens, as re
ported. President Smith, of the American Flint
Glass Workers' Union, says there is not an
overprodnctlon of flint glass, as has been stated.
He cannot account for the stagnation, how
ever. The glass packers, mixers and teasers and
