? e- BASEBALLJWATTERS. Manager'PIiillips Talks About tlie Home Team. CONWAY HAS A SOEE ABM. Buffalo Ball Players Kick Against Colored Colleagues. I GOSSIP ABOUT THE PEDESTRIANS. ir Beddy Gallagher and the Marine Hatched to Fight 6EKEBAL 5P0KTIKG KEWS OP THE DAI Manaeer Phillips was in & mood to talk frankly about the local team last night and the details of the recent trip. Horace is not s man who is easily discouraged, and the apparent shortcomings of the team while away from home have little or no effect on him. He also made a statement last even ing which shows that all the players are not in the best of condition. Daring a conversa tion last evening be said: 'There is one feature that I want made clear regarding our playing with the Association clubs. I never termed any of those clubs dubs.' I ha7e been quoted by papers of Asso ciation cities as using that term, but the charge Is false. We aidn't set out with the intention of disparaging any team or anybody. While practice was our great object we made reasona ble effort to put up good games. The players generally bave done well, considering that It was their first effort of the season. In fact, many of them bave done so well that there will be great difficulty in selecting our regular nine. The troubte will be in determining who we will dispose of FLAYEBS DOING WELL. Maul Is dlng well, and so are Nicol and Coleman. They are doing such excellent work that really at present I don't know who of them would be best to keep. As usual, our pitchers are behind in condition. It seems that this is our trouble every season, and I'm sure we offer every reasonable inducement to them to get into line. Conway has gotten a cold In bis arm, but I don't think it is of much significance. Of course I am well satisfied withLauer, but be also has an injured arm; at least it is poisoned. The dye of his new uniform pene trated a sore on his arm, and poisoning set in. His arm is considerably swollen, but the case is not a serious one. He will be a great catcher, I think. "We will not select our team until, after all the exhibition games and even then we may keep some of the vounger players who arc not assigned to a regular position. Allen has not bad a fair chance yet. HE -WAS NEBYOUS in the game that he played and was extremely afraid of his ankle. Altogether, I am confident that we have a stronger team than we bave ever bad. All that is needed now is good practice twice a day, and this must be done. Of course our trip West was not a brilliant one, but if we had stayed at borne we couldn't bave bad the practice that was gotten on the trip. During our absence the grounds at Recreation Fatk have only been in condition to play on two days." Regarding the comparison made by certain writers about McPhee andDunlap, Manager Phillips said: "Now let it be understood that Dunlap during our trip was not so foolish as to run any danger of hurting bis ankle, or injur ing himself in any way. Fred simply says wait until the warm weather comes and we are out for the stuff, and then people can judge as to good or bad playing. McPhee is a cood player, EutDnnlap is just as good. Fred, at any rate, is good enough for us. or anybody else for that matter." The Allegnenies will play at Johnstown to Jay -against the dub at that place. Galnn and Miller will be the Allegheny battery. The players will leave about 8 o'clock this morning and return this evening. On Wednesday and Thursday the Toronto aggregation will be here. The Syracuse Stars will follow for three cames, and there will be no more contests until the Chicagos come and open the championship season. SOMEWHAT SHAKY. Homesteads Beaten by McKeesports In a One-Sided Game. The Homesteads and the McKeesports opened the County League season on Saturday on the grounds of the former. The game was fairly well attended, but was poorly played. Homestead fielded wretchedly and batted poor ly. The McKeesports' fielding was also faulty, buttbey used the stick to great advantage.

The echoes of the pedestrian contest were numerous and interesting yesterday. Almost all the contestants were at the Central Rink and bad a look at the track on which such a stubborn contest took place. Golden was more broken up than any of the others. Hegelman looked like a shadow, but "his legs were all right. Noremac was just as chipper as ever. The sheet keeptrs bave completed the fig ures regarding the amount of sleep each of the five winners had during the week. Correctly speaking it cannot be called "hours of sleep,"' but the time each was absent from the track. The list is as follows: Horan, 24K hours: Nore mac 23 bqurs and 37 minutes: Hegelman, 4 hours per day; Connors, 28 hours; Golden, 28 hours. There is considerable talking about matches among the pedestrians. During yesterday afternoon Messier stated that be was prepared to walk any man in America 100 miles, bar Hoagland. George Cartwrigbt at once offered to match a man against him but Messier de ferred putting up a forfeit until later. There was a talk of a 2mil race between Peter Heg elman and E. C. McClelland, of this city. The latter is willing to run Hegelman 25 miles and a race between them is likely to be arranged. Almost all the pedestrians except the five winners will remain in the city to take part in the 12-hour consolation next Saturday. ARRANGING A BIG FIGHT.

IN THE FIGHT TO STAY. Mr. Carnegie Will Support Representative Wherry's Ami-Discrimination Meas ure Through Thick and Thin Hope at Leant In the Near Future rPROM A STAFF COBXESFOXDEXT.l Habbxsbuso, April 14. Representative Wherry is in receipt of letters from Andrew Carnegie, in which that gentleman declares that he is in the anti-discrimination fight to stay, and will support Mr. Wherry through thick and thin. He will carry the fight through to the next session of the Legisla ture if a bill does not pass this Legislature, and it is quite likely the'fight will have to be made there, and before the people. Mr. Wherry said to-day: "The good Lord and the people of Cumberland county willing, I will be in the next Legislature to help make this fight. Here is where I want to be and not in the State Treasurership or Governorship." A Republican member, speaking on the subject to-day, said: "There is this peculiar feature about the Knights of Labor peti tions for Mr. Wherry's anti-discrimination bill, that none of them were presented through the regularly appointed legislative committee. There is also a peculiar feature about the Knights of Labor legislation of the session that has succeeded, and that is that it all came from Democrats." The prospects of any legislation adverse to the railroads going through the Legisla ture at this session are verv slight, but it is more than pfbbable that the bill that will be taken up is the railroad commission bill of Mr. Williams, of Luzerne. The Williams bill was introduced on February 5, and was reported by the Rail road Committee, with a negative recom mendation, on February 22. It provides for a commission of three persons, at sala ries of $3,500 each, with $300 additional to the one elected chairman, and a secretary at 52,000. The duty of the commission is to know all about the railroads of the State, and fjpr that purpose it is to have access to all books, papers, etc, of railroad corpora tions, and may through the courts compel the production of these, when they cannot otherwise be obtained. It shall examine complaints of shippers against railroad com panies, and its finding shall be accepted as evidence in any judicial proceeding. The commission is given no power to punish of fenses, and the bill does not define any of fense, except refusal to give the commission fall and free access to all information, upon report of which to the Attorney General he shall take such action as he deems expe dient. It is made a misdemeanor for the com mission, or any of its members, clerks, agents, etc, to disclose the business of one corporation to another. The commission is designed to see that the railroad companies obey such laws as exist, and to ascertain whether they are violating them or not. After that it appears it can merely recom mend, and if the railroad pfficials do not see fit to adopt its recommendation, the only recourse of the complainant is to go into ithe courts. It may be intended to make the bill a basis for something stronger. Enster Opening: Bonnets and Hats At The People's Store Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this week.

WARD 1TALLISTERHAST0 RESIGN His Position as Manager of the Grandest Ball of the Century. THE COMMITTEE SATS HE JS TOO OLD, But Ward Claims That Members Were Jealous of His Superior Still. Ward McAllister will resign as manager of the 'Washington inauguration ball. He takes the request of the committee to with draw very coolly, and naively tells a re porter how he came to get himself disliked. As for the committee, its members say the famous 'Ward is getting too old to conduct such an affair, if, indeed, he ever was able. tSPECIAI. TELXOB-AM TO TTCB iJISPATCH-t New York, April 14. Since Mr. Fish's Centennial Entertainment Committee clip ped Mr. McAllister's wings on March 21, thereby reducing him from a position of power to one of empty honor and a badge, the committee and Mr. McAllister have not met On Friday he received a notification that there would be a meeting, of the com mittee in Mr. Fish's office on Saturday. It was the same lormal notice that every other member of the committee received. Mr. McAllister did not care to attend, but he did want to know what was expected of him. He wrote a note asking for that in formation, and received a polite request to resign his place as manager of the ball. A member of 'the Centennial Committee said to-day that the best thing Mr. McAllis ter could do was to act upon the polite sug gestion. "The whole thing in a nutshell," said he, "is that "Mr. McAllister is getting pretty well advanced in years. He must go, you know. "Well, it is natural that a man ofhisyears but I'll tell you theFntertain ment Committee is not made up of the kind of men that can be bossed by any dema gogue, big or little, old or young. Take a look at five men who are on the commit tee, for instance, take "William Jay, Stuy vesant Fish, "W. "W. Astor, "William K. Vanderbilt and Robert Goelet. You'll have to look far before you can find five other voun? men of equal ability and in fluence. Do you think they are the sort of men who will submit to bossism? RE 'WILI. QUIETLY RESIGN. Mr. McAllister said this afternoon that he would now resign. He explained that the committee's letter was not a dismissal. The committee had no power to dismiss. His resignation from the committee has been draughted. "My object," said Mr. McAllister this afternoon, was to do all in my power to make that ball a success. I am not a man who seeks work, you understand. I have the interests of the ball at heart, and if the committee thinks I can best serve the good interests of the ball by resigning, then noth ing will give me more pleasure than to re sign. I have no resentment for the com mittee, and if they want my help or advice in any way, at any time, Iwill most cheer fully give'it to them. I do feel, vou under stand, a little stronger on balls than a rail road president. You don't run balls and railroads the same way, though both oi them do make fast time. "Mr. Gerry once told me," continued Mr. McAllister, "that it did not make the slightest difference whether you had bon bons or pork and beans at a ball, or whether half the ticket holders got in or not, for the crowd, so long as you had a big crowd there. That was his idea of a successful ball. I replied to him that anyone who went to a ball and suffered on account of the crowd, or did not get a first-rate supper, or first-rate wine, and plenty of both, had a perfect right to say he was swindled. You see, we differ on some points." WHOSE FAULT IX IS. "Why do you think the committee took this move?" asked the reporter. "It is undoubtedly all Mr. Fish's doings," said Mr. McAllister. "He's been stirring the other members up. "Why, only a short time ago, when I gave up my books to Mr. Morris, the new secretary.I told himl would resign with pleasure, if the committee was hostile, and ne replied that the committee was not hostile, and would be very glad if I would go right along with the work. His letter of to-day was the next thing I hear. "The whole trouble came of three causes. There's a mighty interesting inside history to it, you know. The first cause was my op position to Fish's desire to turn the whole ball and banquet into a Republican ova tion. I made a great many objections to certain proposals that clearly tended in this direction, and with that began the first estrangement between us. "Why, Mr. Fish went out to Indianapolis last fall to see if Harrison would dance in the opening quadrille. Harrison, naturally, refused, and actually, sir, Fish telegraphed me that the quadrille would have to be abolished, because Harrison wouldn't dance. That is one instance. Gerry was with them in the desire to make it a celebration of the Re publicans' return to power. XHE 3IAYOR GETS XHERE. "The next thing in which I came in con flict with the men who are running the af fair was my opposition to Mr. Gerry's de sire to sit at the head of the table, near the President. The place belonged to Mayor Grant, who was Chairman of the whole committee. Mr. Gerry was only Chairman of the Executive Committee. I held to the point that the place belonged to Mayor Grant. Mr. Gerry Faid something, I be lieve, about Mr. Grant not being able to carry the thing through, but Mr. Grant finally got the place. That started an op position to me right away, on the part of Mr. Gerry, which has unquestionably been a factor in this trouble. There is another matter that was very potent, but I won't speak about it, because if involves the names of ladies." "I suppose you refer to the selection of ladies to dance in the quadrille," suggested the reporter. "I do," said Mr. McAllister. "I made out a list that meant something. I knew Mr. Fish wanted a different list, but his list I COULDN'T OBLIGE HIM by agreeing with. In this affair I could have accepted his list only by making a fool of myself. The name ol the dance qua drille d'honneur demanded age, distinc tion and prominence in those selected for it, or if not age, it at least demanded the other two qualifications. At the ball given to the Prince of "Wales on his visit here, about 30 years ago, such ladies as Mrs. Governor Morgan and Mrs. Bancroft danced the quadrille d'honneur. It seemed to me ap propriate that this dance should be given by people who were descendants of the men and womenwho stood around "Washington in the opening dance of his inauguration ball, and I modeled my list on this idea." a yeey"good dandy. StnyTesant Fish Bays McAllister Could Get Up aPntrlarchs' Ball Quite Well, Bat This Contract Wis Too ninch for Him. (SPECIAL TELEGKAH TO Till DISPATCIt.1 New York:, April 14. "The committee," said Stuyvesant Fish, to-day, "has been trying for a long time to get rid of Air. Mo Allister, and they are mightily tickled now that they have succeeded. When the sub-committee was appointed to relieve Jiim of his duties as Secretary, they found A" ,- PITTSBURQ- DISPATCH, that he had entered into a great number of absurd verbal contracts and agreements. All of these they as, gentlemen have as sumed and will nbw carry out. Mr. McAl-, lister's withdrawal will not injure the ball, seriously or otherwise." "I will pay him one compliment," con tinued Mr. Fish. "His arrangements about the box tickets were excellent , All the de tails for the ball are now complete, the con tracts are made and the boxes are sold. Mc Allister will do very well for the manager of a Patriarchs' ball. That is quite a difierent affair from this. Then he would have to provide for only 400 persons, and spend only about $5,000. Here we have to pro vide for 800 persons, at an expense of $100, 000. What does he have to do to get up a Patriarchs ball? He goes to Delmomco and says: 'Give us another.' Then he goes to Johnson and savs: 'Give us another 400 carriages, just like the last' The only changes he needed to make in the Delmoni co order was to substitute different colored globes for the lights, a different brand of wine, flowers of a more seasonable kind or different color and a few changes in the supper. "This talk about the McAllister 400 is all nonsense. It was Charles Delmonico who created them, by his building of a ballroom that would accommodate just that number. There are two 400's in this city. My brother belongs to the McAllister 400, and I belong to the other. McAllister is a very good dandy, but he is utterly incapable of look ing after business matters." HALSTEAD DIDN'T WAKT IT. That's the Belief or Senator Sherman Neither Is the Editor to bo Governor Other Editors and Senators. Part of the United States Senate was at the Union depot last evening, Senators Spooner and Philetus Sawyer going home, and John Sherman returning to Washing ton to see the ".President, possibly about Ohio appointments. It is not more than a week since Senator Sherman was interviewed in Pittsburg; but a man of his experience and ability has al ways something new to say. Here's his latest: No, the rejection of Mr. Halstead by the Senate will not improve his chances for the Governorship of Ohio, for tho simple reason that he Is not a candidate. Mr. Halstead doesn't want anything. He wasn't even anxions to go to Germany, and the honor came to him unsought. The Senate certainly made a ereat mistake in reviving the Payne case. It is ridiculous to call up newspaper articles. Mr. Halstead has a kind heart and is witbont malice. President Harrison has appointed a number of editors to Imnortant positions, hut there is nothing remarkable or strange In that. Gen eral Jackson did the same thing. As for the alleged snubbing of Mr. Blaine by the President, and the rumors that the former will soon retire from the Cabinet to preserve his dignity, these are journalistic stories. I am glad the Senate has lately disonssed diplomatic problems with open doors. The fishery question, extradition treaty and the Samoan difficulties were considered In Dublic" Foreign countries never discuss diplomatic questions in secret, and why should weT Certainly, I bave always been in favor of de veloping our trade with South America. I wouldn't subsidize a line of steamships; that word subsidy is odious: but I would pay a good frice for carrying the United States mail, say 109,000 to Brazil, whether 100,000 letters were taken there or not Like the man who spends money for a few years in building up trade from which he will reap profit In the future, such a system would materially increase our South American commerce. Senator Sawyer said that the President had turned out of office twice as many, so far, as Cleveland did in the same time, and he thought this was sufficient to show that Mr. Harrison is not moving too slowly, as the politicians complain. Senator Spooner remarked that the Demo crats had always been worried about Blaine, and they are responsible for the rumors cir culating about him. EECOTEEED LOST GROUND.

A United States Senator has hit upon a novel plan for testing the faithfulness and sincerity of office seekers. The Senator has a large mail, and cannot afford to "cm ploy the neces sary clerical help to handle it. so when a man applies for an office the Senator sug gests that while he is waiting for the ap pointment to be made that he five him a little of his time instead of holding down a chair in the hotel lobbies; If the applicant Is the right sort of a man, he takes hold with a will and soon' gains the favor of his patron. The scheme has served to throw out a number of the leeches who hang about the rooms of the public men, taking up their time, interfering with their work, but never volunteering to help them in any way. The Senator, however, is very much em barrassed about one case: A faithful con stituent has put in all his time since the yU a fAPAri wn1rin l-tnvrl and ino Cart ator has not yet been able to secure any-. thing for him, though he has haunted sev eral of the departments in his interest. He fears now the man will think he is using him, and that he will bring suit for services .tendered. fiESULTS OP TWO COURTS MARTIAL. Army and Navy Circles Spccnlntlnir on the Lydecker nnd Armes Cases. rSFECIAX. TELEOHAM TO THE DI9PATCn.l "Washington, April 14. All the talk in army circles is the probable outcome of the Lydecker and Armes courts martial. The trial of Major Lydecker for neglect of duty, in failing to give proper oversight to the great water works tunnel for the Capi tol, was long and searching. The finding of the court has been in the hands of Major General Schofield for seyeral days, and will probably be approved and made public within a day or two. It is whispered about that the sentence of the court is that the Major shall be 'suspended from rank and duty for a period of two years. As to the Armes case, it is a general opinion that in consideration of the Cap tain's peculiar temperament, and on ac count of his" record for bravery during the war, the sentence will be a light one, proba bly censure and a brief suspension. It is understood that Governor Beaver, while too much of a soldier to attempt to interfere withlhe severe discipline of a court mar tialr has expressed a hope thafno supposed indignity suffered by him will procure any additional punishment for Captain Armes. The Captain has been anything but war like since the beginning of the trial, and is said to keenly regret his indiscretions. It is asserted by some of his friends, however, that if opportunity offers during the course of the trial the Captain will explode a bomb by producing sworn evidence in re gard to the conduct and transactions of some of his enemies who are high officers that will be decidedly startling. Armes feels that he has always been hunted and persecuted by a certain army clique, and will do anything he can by way of retaliation, if driven to the wall. His former trial, which resulted in his dismissal from the army, was shown to have been a disreputable conspiracy, the chief actors in which were themselves soon dismissed lrom the army in disgrace, and while the Cap tain's erratic but really harmless, conduct in connection with the inauguration is deemed worthy of some formal action, the hearings of the court would arouse like in terest, were it not for an expectation that Armes will produce something sensational in his defense. A MAN WHO WILL BE .MISSED. Superintendent Bell, of the For elan Mall Service, a Bard Official to Beplnce. rWJSCIAI. TEI.EG11AM TO TDI DISFATCIM "Washington, April 14. One of the ap pointees of the late administration who is most anxious to surrender his place to a suc cessor is Mr. Nicholas M. Bell, Superin tendent of Foreign Mails in the General Postoffice. Mr. Bell has been from the time oijiia appointment one of the most popular gentlemen in the publio service. Having important warehouse interests in St. Louis, the city of his residence, he presented his resignation to Postmaster General Wana maker almost as soon as that gentleman was inducted into office, but it has not yet been accepted, and no successor has been ap pointed. During Mr. Bell's incumbency he gave special attention to the extension of tne for eign mail service, and at the time of his resignation had negotiations well under way by which the conveniences of the parcels post would have been in operation between the United States and every South Ameri can Stafe. At present nothing except a let ter or a newspaper can pass by mail between this and the South American countries, and this renders it so expensive to send small parcels as to almost prohibit their transmission. ' A young Spanish South American from Ecuador desired the other day to write a friend residing at Quito to forward him a few boxes of cigars, which are made there at about tliree for G cents, but which are superior to cigars sold in the ordinary shops of the United States at any price. He inquired of Mr. Bell what it would c6st to have them brought by mail, and was informed by the superintendent that they could not be mailed at all. He discovered that the only channel through which they could be transmitted was a sort of express arrangement between the two countries, and that the carriage of a box of SO cigars between South. America and the United States would cost about $18,exclusive of duty and regardless of their value. Had Mr. Bell remained in office the ar rangements for the parcels post would have been completed within a few weeks, but the cessation of correspondence touching the matter, and the probable inexperience of Mr. Bell's successor, will doubtless defer negotiations ior six months or a year.

We may watch for it never so anxiously; anticipate its approach with all the precau tions the human mind can coneeive, yet Death, the unbidden messenger, comes into our midst at last an unexpected guest, and we shrink before the chilling shadow of his approach just as if his advent had never been thought of, and as if it had not been inevitable. This is tne sad fact forced home upon the mind of the writer as he sits dowa to say on pa- per tnat Major Sidney Omohundro, his friend the friend of many hundreds, if not thousands, of good men in "Western Pennsylvania is dead. It had been looked for, and dreaded, both in that' model house hold on Meyran avenue, Oakland, and out of it; but that hope which srrings eternal 'in the human heart had caught at every ray of sunshine that darted through the shadows, and well, they said, and all fondly hoped that "he was better." He is better now, good man ! But be cause he was so exceptionally kind and good and worthy of respect among all his fellows, it is said, for all who Knew him to say "goodby," and feel that they shall look into his friendly eyes no more. Major Omohundro died of typhoid pneu monia, at his home, foot of Meyran avenue, Oakland, about 1 o'clock, this morn ing, after a very severe ill ness ol only a little more 'than two weeks. He was so near deaths door a week ago that hundreds of his friends began anxiously to inquire as to his hopes of recovery, and none seemed ready then to accept the verdict that he must die. They hoped, the 'physicians conferred again and again, and, gradually, as the sufferer lingered at the very threshold, and then seemed repeatedly to turn back and take another faint hold on life, (here went forth the expression'that he simply must re cover. He had been very ill in the sum mer of 1887, but had got around yith plnck enough to ride in the E recession on Grand Army Dav (although e was still a sick man); and everybody hoped the unflinching courage of the man was to pull him nicely through again. But this was not to be, for, although he seemed so much better that his son, as late as yes terday morning, felt encouraged enough to almost believe the crisis past, it was only the twilight gleam that precedes the fall of night. Sidney Omohundro was born in Cincin nati June 22, 1842, and immediately after his collegiate education enlisted, August 31, 1862, in the Fourth Ohio "Volunteer Cavalry, which was la regiment composed almost exclusively of the young business men of the Queen City. His regi ment participated in the principal battles of the "West and was with General Sherman in his famous march to the sea. Omohundro, after the war, studied law and did considera ble journalistic work in Cincinnati; then he engaged in mercantile pursuits until his health failed him. and finally acain tookuD newspaper work. He is a chair officer of .rostd, and was a delegate to tne last three State Encampments, an alternate to the St. Louis Encampment and a delegate to the Columbus Encampment. He was unani mously elected Commander of the "First G. A. B, Division", and also is Secretary of the General Court, and Chairman of the Court on Invitations, which position he has held for several consecutive years. He was also prominent in Sunday school work; was elected in 1868 to the Iionorableand : responsible position of President of the Sunday School Union of the M. E. Church, of Hamilton coun ty, Ohio; taught class at the Lib erty Street M. E. and Smithfield M. E. Sunday schools in this city, and was identified with the work in Erie. He had been Superintendent of the Oakland M. E. Sunday school for a number of years. Major Omohundro held ope of the most important positions in the business office of TnE Dispatch, which he had filled, with exceptional fidelity, ability and popularity for more than two years last past. In addition he found time to attend to all tlimany calls of fraternity which could nWbut be exacting upon oneconnected with so many or ganizations, both among Union veterans and in other societies. Ho edited the best Grand Army column that the veterans read, attended the gatherings of his own post and others; and, wherever he went, either among the best business naffer the leading veterans, that friendly, Sincere smile of good fellowship and unexceptional good will was sure to be reflected from the faces of those who encountered and were warmed by it. Whether! hey shall all be able to gath er about his bier or not, there will be more mourners on the day of Major Omohundro's funeral than have grieved to gether for many a day. To the family, Ed ward, Erwin and Mortimer the three sons and their widowed mother, a very sympa thetic, tender feeling will go out. The arrangements for the funeral are not yet, completed.
