The officials of the local team are still
.what is termed hustling for pitchers. It is
understood that President Kimick will
eave for the East this morning to visit
Manager Phillips. Mr. Nimick couldn't
be seen last evening, but one of his friends
stated that the President's trip is entirely in
the interest of the club.
There are various conjectures as to what his
definite mission is. One gentleman who claimed
to be well informed on the matter said: "I un
derstand that the local officials are making in
quiries all around for pitchers. Mr. Nimick
has two or three on the list, and all of them are
very .highly spoken of. I think that he will
either go to New York and have a talk with
Manager Phillips on the matter or have the
latter come here. There are several good
lyoung pitchers in the East and also in the
West, a.id it may be that Manager Phillips is
to take a tour round and in hopes of finding
some worthy young fellow. At any rate I
know that the officials are after two or three
good men, and expect to secure at least one of
WILL MAKE ANOTHEB EFFORT.
Another effort will be made to-day to try and
: sign Beam, of Latrobe. Secretary Scandrett
x saw him pitch on Saturday, and thinks well of
him. The young man is now anxious to join
Stthe Pittsburgs, and Mr. Scandrett thinks that
'-the young man's father will consent to his be
coming a full fledged professional to-day.
There are also rumors current to the effect
I that efforts will be made to trade Morris for
(another League pitcher. A similar rumor was
'current last year, and was proven to be false.
jlt is claimed now, however, that there are good
it grounds for the present rumor. Morris last
lyear might have been traded for Badbourne,
3but such a deal cannot be made now. It is
i difficult to find any club just now that will give
(a good pitcher lor Morns. The latter, how
! ever, exnects to be all risrht this week, and Is
?!Zuent that he will pitch as 'good this season
as he ever did. Conway is also improving, but
somewhat slowly, and it may be that before
lone or two good new pitchers are secured the
old ones will be all right.
It is the intention ol the cluo to give ivrnmm
a thorough trial, and if he does satisfactory
.work he will be retained, and if he is one of
the old twirlers will be dispensed witn.
twtxtt -vrp.T.T. nT wnrrRTM".
f It is understood that the players and also
a. .Manager Phillips think well of the Southsider.
' It is their general opinion that if hehadcon-
trol of the ball he will be a very effective
pitcher. There are many local authorities,how-
. ever, who think that Deitz, of the Our Boys
team, will make a better man than any of the
other local pitchers who have joined profes
sional ranks lately. Deiti certainly has a good
record so far.
There was another interesting question dis
cussed in local baseball circles last night, viz:
The resolve of the California League to come
j under the government of the National agree
k ment. The league in question has been out of
I the fold for two years and its present resolve
? is hailed with delight by all the leading base
ball organizations. The Board of Arbitration
has consented to accord the California League
( the protection provided by the national agree
k ment. This action will shut off the last resort
ffor disgruntled players and contract breakers.
L Heretofore certain players, both in this and
t other cl'ies, have continually threatened to
& "go to California." if they didn't get aU they
wantef. This threat can no longer nave any
effect, as the California League will no longer
hare anything to do with players whoare signed
by reservation or otherwise by Eastern clubs.

AN' INTERESTING QUESTION.
Veteran Chadtrlck Asks When a Pitcher
Can be Chanced.
K T notice that Frank Bancroft made a good
H point when he questioned the soundness of
rule 28. 'When a batsman goes to the bat in a
game he takes his inning at the bat. When the
nine at bat have lost three hands out, they have

comprises "a completed innings." suppose In
H the very first inning of a game the pitcher.
Blinding that he cannot send m the ball as swift
Ply as usual, and that the opposing batsmen are
Hjpunishing his delivery badly, goes to the
Hfeaptain and says: "I think you had better
change me," and the captain decides to do so,
before the change can be legally made the side
at the bat must be put out and their inning
completed. Then the change can be made, and
Jthe tenth man may go to tne oat in tne last
nan oi tne nrst inning.
't In the case emoted, therefore. Barnum
t claimed that the change could not be made un
Rltil the second Inning began, whereas the rule
admits of its being made at the end of the first
pan or ine nrsi inning, suppose tnat in tne
.first innings of the game the pitcher, while
trery effective in pitching is weak at the bat,
and that his first work in the box results in
four or five hits as a starter? Not only is it a
point to change him for the tenth man as re-
cards his pitching, bnt also to put in abetter
batting pitcher, and here is where the point is
znaae zuiowjw. hub lentn man w come on in tne
last half of the first inning.when the tenth man
can go in at the bat. If the rule be interpreted
change would lose the batting advantage of
the change, that is, supposing the change is
made in order to strengthen the battery. Sec
retary Young should at once define the mean
ling of the new rule so as to make its interpre
.tation officially correct. B. Chadwick.

New York, May 19. a large number were
present at the meeting this afternoon in the
raH. C. A. Hall to hear Mr. W. A. Sunday.
the well-known right fielder of the Pittsburgs.
liir. Sunday Is an interesting and forcible
speaker. He did not get off any baseball

The Annual Spring; Meeting oft ho Organiza
tion Held nt New York.
New Yokk, Mar 19. The Baseball Brother
hood held its annual spring meeting at the
Fifth Avenue Hotel to-day. The delegates to
the meeting were Ward and Keefe, represent
ing the New York club: Brouthers. of Boston;
Hanlon, of Pittsburg; Healy, of Washington;
Myers, of Indianapolis; Pfeffer, of Chicago;
Sanders, of Philadelphia, and Twitchell, of
Cleveland. Players Ewing, Welch, Brown,
Wood, Glasscock, Carroll, Beckley and Stalejr
were also present. The session lasted from
1130 A. M. nil 7:30 p. St.; but little actual work
was done outside of routine business. The
election of officers is done by chapters. Ward
will be re-elected President and Keefe Secre
tary and Treasurer. The only contest is over
the Vice Presidency, for which both Brouthers
and Myers are candidates.
Finance, grievance and and relief committees
were appointed and Treasurer Keefe reported
the financial department of the organization
was in fine condition. All the Cleveland play
ers have become members of the Brotherhood.
Boyle, the Indianapolis pitcher, was the only
person to present a grievance. He claimed
that he had been severely treated by his club
last year, alleging that the club not only re
fused to pay him his salary while he was sick,
but that he was fined 100 for being sick. The
Brotherhood proposes to have that fine returned
to the player. Those who have predicted sen
sational features and a strike will be disap
pointed. The players discuss the classification
rule question, but no definite action was agreed
upon. The players are opposed to the rule, bnt
there is not much chance of ordering a strike,
when the objectionable features can be rem
edied in a less boisterous but more sensational
BEAM WAY NOT SIGN.

fSriCIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Gkeexsbueq, May 19. Secretary Scandrett,
of the Pittsburg team, was at Latrobe last
evening, his mission being to sign Beam, the
pitcher for the Latrobe club, but his efforts
proved fruitless, and the possibilities are now
that he will not secure his man at alL A good
offer was made to the young man, but while he
claimed it was not enough of money, he said he
would consider the matter and probably see
Mr. Scandrett later.
It is now given out that Beam will not sign
with the Pittsburgs under any consideration.
A number of Latrobe sporting people, it was
stated to-day, will make up a purse for the boy
rather "than lose him this season. Mr. Scan
drett made an engagement with Beam to meet
him to-morrow morning.

rSFECIAI. TELEGRAH TO TBI SISPATCH.1
New York, May 19. The fire which broke
out Saturday night at the Washington baseball
grounds, in Fifth street, Brooklyn, resulted
in the complete destruction of the grand stand,
which could accommodate more than 2,500
spectators, and the athletic club rooms under
neath, together with a big piece of the fence on
the Fifth street side of the grounds. It started
in the dressing room on the Fifth street side
under the grand stand, but how nobody Jcnows.
It was here that the fire was ragrag-when first
discovered. Although naif y (lozen engines

.his departure about 7 o'clock there was not a
trace of fire in the place. Secretary Charles
Ebbitt, of the Brooklyn club, witnessed the
burning up of the grand stand, and early yes
terday morning be was on hand with a boss car
penter, and a contract for the rebuilding of the
stand was made. He was assured it would 'be
completed by Decoration Bay, and would ac
commodate all who might come to witness the
first home game between the Brooklyn and St.
Louis clubs. The grounds and grand stand are
owned by Charles H. Byrne & Co. Mr. Ebbitt
estimates the loss at S1S.O0O, on which there is
an insurance of $12,000.

How Beading Won the Big Six-Day
Bicycle Eace at Chicago.
THE TACTICS OP HIS FHIENDS
Intense Indignation Among
THE DECISION MAI TET BE EEYEESED
jOne Claim Made That the Eace Was Fixed by the
Chicago, May 19. Intensely bitter feel
ing has been stined up in sporting circles
by what is declared to be the unfair tactics
by which the big prize was snatched from
Denver by Omaha, last night, in the six-day
bicycle tournament. As there will ap
parently be no end of comment and may be
a reversal of the result, the minutest details
of the affair are being sought. The Tribune
tells of the "unprofessional spectacle" as
The riders were well bunched and everything
proceeding smoothly, when, at 3 P. ST., an acci
dent occurred. ReadiDg, of Omaha, suddenly
fell head first on the track. Prince, also of
Omaha, was jnst behind and had no time to
escape. In a moment be, too, was sent sprawl

At 2 o'clock, when the band was playing
'Hail Columbia" and 5,000 people were waving
hats and handkerchiefs In the air, came the
extraordinary incident referred to. The
Omaha man, Beading, had begun a tremendous
IN A POCKET.
Knapp was immediately behind Prince and
Morgan. When he discovered that his much
prized lap was being taken away from him, he
made a heroic effort to increase his speed. The
Omaha man. Prince, and the Englishman, Mor
gan, however,' just in front, thwarte d every ef
fort. Knapp was in a pocket. When he attempted
an increase of speed Prince would promptly
cut him off by forcing him to the outer wall.
In vain Knapp expostulated and appealed to
tho jndges as he swept by the stand. Prince
only smiled grimly. Knapp swore and shook
his fist without avail.
The queer spectacle of two men leisurely
holding an excited third in check, while a
fourth at every turn of the wheel was snatching
victory irom conceded defeat, was to the crowd
like a red flag to a bull. On every side Prince
met with a storm of hisses.
"Robber!" shrieked the crowd.
"That may do In Omaha, but it don't go here,"
yelled a chorus of boys.
When Reading finally came around neck and
neck with Prince and Morgan, and in advance
of Knapp, now hopelessly behind, the hissing
became terrific Knapp was plainly a, favorite.

THE NONPAREIL BACKS DOWN.
Jack Dempsey Refuses to Sign Articles
With Joe Etlingiworlh.
rSFECIAX. TKLEOIIAM TO THE DISPATCH.
San Francisco, May 19. There appeared
in a Los Angeles paper to-day the following
"deft" written by Joe Ellingsworth, the noted
New York middle weight pugilist:
Jack Dempset Previous Jo your departure
from New York you stated in the New York Sun
of April 19; 1889, In reply to my challenge that if
the Southern California Athletic Club, of Los
Angeles, would give a purse of 85,000 you would
ratet n In preference to any man In
the world. I traveled 8,000 miles to fight.
The Los Angeles Club has deposited the
purse, and now nothing remains but for
you to sign articles. You still evade a fight, as
you have done for the past three Tears. It is my
opinion that you only desire to hold the champion
ship for the purpose of hlppodroming through the
country. Now. I say. If you are afraid to meet
me, you should give up the middle-weight cham
pionship to me, and I will defend it against any
middle-weight In the world.
When Dempsey saw the article he began
searching for Ellingsworth. Hefonnd him in
a short time on Spring street. "Did you write
this?" he asked of the New Yorker.
"Yes," replied Ellingsworth. "I wrote itand
will stand by it. What have you got to say
Dempsey began to weaken, and said be
wanted more money. Ellingsworth backed
him down on every proposition, and the Non
pareil figured in anything but an enviable
light. In Los Angeles the general opinion pre
vails that Jack is not anxieus to meet Joe on
any terms. An effort to make him sign arti
cles last night failed.
ABOUT KNOTT'S DEFEAT.
An Eastern Authority Thinks He Oogbt to
Havo Woo the Derby.
That Proctor Knott was on Derby day all
that his most ardent admirers had a right to
expect, is certain. Had he been properly rid
den it is difficult to see how he could have been
beaten. When we say properly ridden, we do
not mean to reflect upon little Barnes. Sam
Bryant was so sanguine of winning that he
wanted to do it with a hurrah. He desired to
spread-eagle the field and show what counter
feits Proctor's opponents were and that the
son of Luke Blackburn was tho only racehorse
in America. He evidently forgot the adige,
which is as old as the bills, that "it is the pace
that kills," and instructed Barnes to tet so far
away from the others that they would not be
able to make up the lost ground. That his
colt responded as well as he did is remarkable,
and we consider his performance the most
wonderful in the annals of the tnrf, for they
may be searched in vain for a parallel.
Here was a 3-year-old in the sprwg of the
year, with his proper weight, running a
quarter in 21M. a half in 4SK, six fur
longs in 1:14, a mile in 1:41, and
a mile and a quarter in 2.-09 in a mile and a
half race, and after such a killing pace, being
able to run the remaining quarter so that in
spite of a swerve he was beaten but a neck in
time only half a second behind the record,
which was established years ago by his sire,
Luke Blackburn, and has only twice been
equaled by those of any age at any weight
since. Turf, Field and Farm.

He Covers the Forfeit of Meyer for a Finish
New York, May 19. Billy Madden, manager
for Champion Jack McAuliffe, yesterday on
McAuliffe's behalf covered Billy Myer's $500de
posit and accepted the challenge of Myer for a
fight to finish for the championship belt and
2,600 to $5,000 a side.
Madden offers to make a match, the same
conditions to prevail as in the fight at North
Judson, Ind.. only that the fight sball take
place within 200 miles of New York. If Myer
objects to fighting in this locality, McAuliffe
will fight him in any of the California athletic
clubs for a purse and will bet $2,500 to $5,000 on
the side. If the above is suitable to Myer,
Madden will meet him any tune he names to

Paris, May 19. The Grand Pole des Proults
was won to-day by Cleodore, the favorite, 'with
Tantale second. Medyn third, and Salvanos
last. There was an excellent start Medyn

It is reported that Captain S. a Brown is

that the Captain is after another first-class

ALL TO BE FIXED.
President Harrison Says He Only Needs
Time to Mako Appointments Fast as
Necessary- He'll Not Slight
Milwaukee, May 19. The Herald will
publish to-morrow the following interview
with President Harrison in regard to his
position toward the German-Americans:
Your Washington correspondent had an In
terview with President Harrison yesterday, in
the course of which he informed the President
that the Herald had complained of the slight
shown the German-American Repablicans,and
that it appeared that the President had been led
to believe that ex-Congressman Guenther was
the only prominent German-American Republi
can in the country, and that his appointment to
the office he seeks was all the recognition the
German-American Republicans expected of
the administration. The President smilingly
stated that he never had been so informed,
and that be knew better, adding that be was

The President took occasion to remark that
be had heard of some dissatisfaction among
the German-Americans because so few ap
pointments have so far been made from that
element. He added that others vere also com

fault with the administration for its slowness
in making appointments if it knew the difficul

usually other persons who would Insist that
that particular person should under no cir

else should have it. He felt it his duty to in

A RITER OF DEATH.
Relnse From Glncote Works Poisons a
Stream and Kills AU tho Fish.
Des Monrds, May 19. Secretary Ken
nedy, of the ptate Board of Health, re
turned from Tama yesterday and reported
to the Governor concerning the wholesale
death of fisll in the Iowa river, from Mar
shalltown dbwe. The doctor found the case
there fully as bad as claimed. Bead fish
float in the water and are deposited on the
hanks and in the eddies in pntriiying
masses. Animals will not drink the water
unless compelled by absolute necessity, and
some deaths of stock are reported from the
effects of drinking it. Three persons drank
the water and were taken ill. Dying
fish token from the river and placed in other
water soon revive.'showing that the pollu
tion is in the river alone. Even the Mus
quakie Indians, whose lands are on the
river, have joined in the complaint, claim
ing that it has caused the death of a num
ber of their ponies.
Kennedy was not prepared to say that
the pollution originated from the glucose
works at Marshalltown, but will make sure
by investigations. The fact that it begins at
Marshalltown indicates that something is
wrong at that point. The Pish Commis
sioner will act with the State Board of
Health in the matter.

TONS OF DEAD HOPES
Buried Deep Down in the Sub-Cellar
of the Treasury Department.
HUNDREDS OP THOUSANDS OP 'EH.
k Record of the Doings of the Department
From the Earliest limes.
BiEKELS,0F LETTERS SENT IN TAIN.
Wonderfully Complete Piles of Documents That Hare
A peep into a sub-cellar of the Treasury
Department, at Washington, discloses an
enormous pile of correspondence relating to
past struggles for Federal offices. There
are great stacks of letters, most of which,
like similar ones nowadays, were unsuccess
ful in their pleadings.
Washington, May 19. Down in the
sub-cellar of the Treasury Department,
underneath the west hall of that building,
are some hundreds of thousands of buried
hopes. In those vaults are kept the books
and papers of the mail and files division,
which comprise the record of all the doings
of the department of every sort, and that is
the final resting place of all applications for
office and recommendations of applicants.
There are stacks of them, and of course the
great majority of them were unsuccessful.
Letters which were written to President
Polk, or Tyler, or Buchanan, asking for an
office and in full confidence that the office
would be given, are stowed away in a file
box and growing dim with age, while the
writers have died long ago, without ever
having drawn a dollar of that money which
they expected to get as workmen for Uncle
There are not very many papers there of
date previous to 1833, in which year the
Treasury building and its contents were de
stroyed by fire. Only a few books and pa
pers were saved. But since that date nearly
every scrap of writing that has come into
the building has been preserved. No paper
is destroyed, and, by law, the destruction of
any paper filed in the department is pun
ished by imprisonment in the penitentiary.
ONLY ONE WAY OF ESCAPE.
The only way in which a paper can escape
when once it has come within the walls of
the Treasury building is by permission ol
the Secretary, given to some applicant for
office to withdraw his papers, and that priv
ilege is sparingly given, and never if charges
are filed against the applicant.
There are charges and proofs on file in
those vaults against men who have made
every possible effort to get and destroy
them, and who would give thousands of
dollars to get possession of them. Some
times the charges are againstmennow dead,
and their families make the effort to clear
away the stain from their names. Of course
it is only when the charges are true, or
have some foundation in fact, that such ef
forts are made, bnt there are tons of charges
and abuse on file there against men who are
innocent. Officials who have been long in
the department say that the great majority
of charges made against applicants are base
less and malicious.
Some of those old applications for office
are very curious, viewed in the light of
these days of mechanical office seeking.
There is an application of George T. Bacon,
of St. Louis, who writes to Secretary
Thomas Corwin on April 31, 1831, asking
forthe.land office in his town. He pre
faces his letter by the statement that his
father was a resident of Ohio and a friend
oV the Secretary ; then ha jays.lhc is Jame-,
and not able to do much work; that the of
fice is a little one anyway, only worth 1600
a year, and closes his appeal with these
words, which sound most ingenious now:
'I know it would be askingyou a good deal
to request you to turn a man out of office to
make room for me, but I believe such things
are sometimes done." It will be seen that
even then the "Ohio idea" was strong, and
if an applicant was not an Ohio man, he
thought it important to be the son of one.
CAN FIND ANYTHING. '
About ten days ago it became necessary,
in order to estannsn tne title to some prop
erty to prove the naturalization of a man
named Coltman, who was an applicant for
office in the Treasury in 1833. After search
ing everywhere else, the required evidence
was found among these papers, jwith the ap
plication for office. He was recommended
for the place by John P. Van Ness, who was
then a Congressman from New York, and
whose name is now remembered here by the
house which he then occupied, called to this
day the "old Van Ness mansion," though
now devoted to ignoble uses.
In his letter Mr. Van Ness says the usual
things about Mr. Coltman's integrity, abili
ty and fitness for the place, and adds: "Be
sides, he is very friendly to the administra
tration, and ready to prove it." An insight
into the curious office-seeking ideas of those
times is given in a postscript to the same
letter, in which Mr. Van Ness says he has
been asked to recommend another gentle
man, whom he names, who is, he says, "of
different politics." Nevertheless he says
this man is capable, and would undoubtedly
make a satisfactory officer.
The applications for office, numerous -as
they are, comprise but a small part of -the
matter contained in these vaults. Some idea
of the books and papers there can be gath
ered from their weight. Until about two
years ago they were all stored in the attio of
the building when they were moved into the
present quarters. The weight of the papers
alone was taken. It was a little over 300
tons, from this it was estimated that the
bound books and documents weighed about
50 tons. It required five months to make
the change of quarters. Not a paper or book
was lost in the operation.
HOW OLD COPIES WEEE MADE.
Among the books one of the largest circu
lations isof the bound, volumes of letter
press copies of all the letters written by any
uuiciuiB ui iuc ucfjdikuicub muuu letter-press
copies have been made. Before copies were
made by press, regularly written copies
were made and kept. Then there arc sev
eral books of original letters written by
early Secretaries of the Treasury. One
book contains the letters written by Secre
taries of the Treasury to the collector of the
port of Baltimore from 1790 to 1830. Those
dated in 1799 are signed by O. "W. "Walcott,
in 1801 by Albert Gallatin, in 1833 by E.B.
Tarrcy. Anindication of the light duties
of the office in those days is found in the
fact that very many of these letters are,
throughout, in the handwriting of the secre
taries themselves. Many of them are signed
simply with the initials of the secretary.
Not long ago a letter was found in those
piles which affirmed the title to a very large
tract of land in Michigan. The Secretary
had written a letter to President Polk con
cerning some public lands in Michigan, and
recommending that certain portions be re
served from sale. At this time such a letter
would be properly filed, and the President's
reply, .with nis recommendations in the
case) w'ould be in a separate letter addressed
to the Secretary, but then President Polk
simply wrote his recommendations on the
back of the letter, signed his name to them,
and sent the whole thing back without the
scratch of a pen anywhere left in his office
to show that he had taken such action.
The records in Michigan indicated that
such a letter was in existence somewhere,
but a search through all the Departments
in Washington failed to disclose it until
Major Kretz, chief of the division In the
Treasury Department, was called, and he
speedily found it.
VALUABLE OLD HEWSPAPEES.
Among the books there are many bound
volumes of old newspapers, the National
Intelligencer, complete, from 1803, kept be
canse in those davs it printed the comnlete
record of Congress' and the only ones, and j
bound volumes of many other papers which
contained matters pertaining to the Treas
ury Department. Not long ago it was nec
essary to know the price of gold on a cer
tain day in 1865. A copy of the New York
Herald of that date, found in these vaults,
furnished the information.
Stored away among the files, with the let
ters accompanying them, are samples of al
most every kind of drygoods "ever impor
ted. They are there because importers ob
jected to the tariff levied by local collectors
and sent these things on for a ruling from
the department. There are shirts and
bustles, and gloves and stockings and plenty
of other interesting articles in these files.
Several hundred dollars worth of jewelry
are also stored away there which has come
in tne same way.
A few weeks ago there was found in one
of the letter books down there an uncan
celled $1,000 interest bearing gold note of
1865. It had been filed along with the letter
which had accompanied it when it was re
deemed, instead of destroyed. Had it ever
escaped from the file it would have been
worth $1,000 with interest, and the United
States would have been tnat much poorer.
The indexing of this vast amount of ma
terial is wonderful. It is so complete that
a name and date, or a subject and a date
given to Major Kretz is enough. He can
find the paper wanted himself, or can send
one of his clerks to the very shelf where
Withall the added work which the flood
of applications of the last two months has
put upon the division, it has never been
behind with fixing and indexing more than
36 hours, and now and most of the time it is
exactly up to date.
WANTS A WIDOW'S SHAEE.
A Woman Who Thought She Was a Wife
Pats In a Wife's Claim.
SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Beookltn, May 19. A suit for $250,000,
begun by Cora Belle Knapp against Ann
B. Barnes, Cora P. Barnes and Demas "W.
Barnes, as executors of the estate of
the late Demas Barnes, of patent medi
cine fame, is in the Circuit Court Demas
Barnes died on May 1, 1888, in his hand
some marble front mansion at 41 "West
Fifty-seventh street. He left a fortune esti
mated at about $5,000,000. The executors
of the will are his widow, a grownup
daughter by his first wife, and the nephew.
The plaintiff in the case is said to be a
beautiful young woman who has a relative
who holds a high place in the national
Government. Her claim is that if she
had not been deceived by Mr.
.Barnes into oeaeving tnat she was
his wife, his death would not have left.her
child fatherless. It is said that Miss Knapp
lived with Mr. Barnes, after an alleged
marriage ceremony, for two years; that he
placed her in an elegantly furnished residence
and surrounded her with all the luxury
and ease that wealth could purchase. It is
said also that he accompanied Miss Knapp
and lived with her at Newport, Narragan
sett Pier, .Niagara Falls, Lake George and
other resorts, and that it was only by an
accident that she learned that he had a wife
when the supposed marriage ceremony with
her was performed.
Miss Knapp asserts that having been
found out, Mr. Barnes agreed to settle upon
her $250,000. Before the settlement could
be effected, however, he died, and it is for
this sum that she is now suing. It is said
Miss Knapp has in her possession letters
written to her by Mr. Barnes that will prove
the truth of her claim. Demas Barnes made
a fortune out of the sale of his "S. T. 1860
X" Plantation Bitters.
UTAH GOLD FIELDS.
Camps Being Rapidly Established and Good
Finds Being Made.
Dandy Ceosslno, Utah, May 19.
New gold fields have been located near here
and close to the Arizona line, the fields
yielding from two bits to $3 per yard, and the
gold is easily separated. Three camps
have been established there, 50 men and
two women are on the ground, and a town
sitTcalled Hite City, after ColahelHife6f
Kansas City, has been located.
The Colonel, who has been working his
claims for four or five months, is washing
1,000 yards a day, with a clean-up showing
$1 per yard.
The climate is mild, the scenery grand,
and no liqnor selling or gambling is al
lowed in the digging. It is claimed as a
fact that these gold fields will prove the
richest since the flush times in California.

Washington, May 19. The rumor of

Each afternoon Mr. Bayard may be seen

mother. One evening last week Mrs. Clymer
and Mr. Bayard were seen driving together
on one of the principal avenues, and the
