Religious Meetings in
the Open Air, and
Sermons That
Few Faithful Christians
Gather to Praise
and Pray,
rrBOM ocn STArr cobhesposbextb.
Johxstowx, June 9. ''The groves were
God's first temples," and never under snch
sad circumstances were religious services
held in open air than the numerous outdoor
gatherings of to-day. Realizing the awful
calamity which has befallen this community,
every degree of society communed together
to-day regardless of sect or person.
Theservices were attended by many people
whose ears had never listened to the teach
ings of God; whose hearts had neverevolved
a secret prayer, or whose thoughts had never
drifted to things divine; they were there,
and realizing the vast destruction of precious
lives and properly, as expatiated upon by
the preacher, with the connecting sad cir
cumstances, hearts of adamant were softened
and tears flowed from the stricken sufferers
at the thought of their lost ones who had
been chosen by the relentless hand of fate.
It Was u Tonchlnc Slsbt
to study tbe faces of the hearers, some of
whom probably had attended the religious
services in the hope of receiving a word of
succor and an assurance of safety of loved
ones on another shore. Upon a rude store
box in front of the temporary postoffice,
Be v. D. J. Beal, of the Presbyterian Church,
addressed the remaining members of his
congregation in a most affectionate manner.
He said in substance:
Jly Dear Friends and Follower!:
I find that words are inadequate to express
my sorrow resultinc from the awful visitation
of God's Almighty band in our midst, but we
are only admonished to prepare for tne Maker's
call. He has seen fit to take away thousands
of our people, and the calamity has shocked
the whole civilized world. To extend my sym
pathy would avail nothing, but we can live In
the assurance that our loving Iriends who were
carried away are safe upon another shore where
floods cannot penetrate. Oh, this is the happy
ultimatum of the sad story.
I received a cablegram from a gentleman in
Scotland inquiries for the safety of Mr. and
Mrs. Cbilds. I looked upon tbe list of the ilead
and found that they were among tbe missi ng. I
immediately answered their foreign friends,
"They are lost, but both gone to heaven." I
knew of a Christian man who, when the flood
was creeping down on him and his family,
grasped a Bible and opened it to rend. His
eyes first fell on the forty-sixth pslam and at
the passage, "Put vour trust in Him. and you
shall be saved." He was saved, and those who
fear God fear nothing.
rcarful Tots of Faith.
Mr. J. Hatch followed Kev. Mr. Beal.
He was fortunate in saving his life after a
thrilling experience, but his wife was
.washed away. He said he trusted in the
heavenly father and His infinite lore for
his safety. There is salvation in prayer, he
thought, and he hoped that they all might
be prepared to meet the ones who had gone
whin the time came. "William H. Tumble-
jstrme also addressed the gathering and was
followed by a fervent prayer bv Mr. Hatch
and the sincine of the doxology.
Another meeting was held this afternoon,
which was attended by a large concourse of
people, who were touched bv the thrilling
and tearful experiences of those who were
rescued. There were instances where many
who were lost shov?ed the virtue of Chris
tianity, and with the happy hope of meet
ing again the unfortunate ones, went down
to death, to meet again in heaven.
The Eev. Father Tahaney, of the parish
of St. Mary's, whose church was destroyed
by fire immediately after the flood, held a
short service this morning, and after mass
Eave his parishioners a "practical talk," as
he expressed it He said:
Must Endeavor to Forcer.
A little over a week has passed since the
waters of the South Fork dam, bursting
through their prison walls, swept through the
valley of tbe Uonemaugb like an avalanche,
and in a moment destroyed the work of years
of human labor. Thousands of your dearly
loved relatives and friends perished in the
seething torrent before our very eyes; scarcely
one among you but iho has to mourn the
loss of father, mother, brother or sister.
Many of you are homeless and dependent
upon tbe charity of friends or Derhaps
strangers, and yet I say to you "Hope."" Great
as has been our affliction, heavy as our burden
seems, we must endeavor to forget God our
Father, who. in His infinite wi-dom, has seen
fit to tbns afflict us knows all things and acts
for the best Although we can't appreciate it
now, perhaps the destruction of our loved
Johnstown may be the means adopted by God
to bestow some great lesson and consequent
benefit to tbe human race.
A public meeting for religious worship
was held in Jlorrellville last night, at the
headquarters of the Americus Club Relief
Committee, under the auspices ol that so
ciety. Kev. E. G. Iionghrey, of Leechburg,
was the officiating clergyman. The Ameri
cus choir, Messrs. Jsoble, "Voigt, McCord
and Reese, opened the service by singing
the verv appropriate hvmn, "Nearer, My
God to "Thee." The tex't was from. Psalm
xix., 7. "The law of the Iiord is perfect
converting the soul." The speaker advo
cated the theory that there is
Nothing New Under the Son.
and staredt that he considered "originality
was an impossibility;" that everything we
do or .say finds its origin in the law of Al
mighty God. Mr. Laughrey claims that
tbe law of God is perfect,inasmuch as where
the works of God are not tampered with by
human interference, there is no danger to
be apprehended. He deplored the readiness
with which people consider every accident
a visitation of Providence, and not the nat
ural result of their own folly or careless
ness. Said he:
Why, to illustrate, if men had not tampered
with God's work by attempting to dam and
force a stream out of its natural bed there
would have been no accident, and the valley of
the uonemaugn wouianx now oe in tears.
Tbe Scrvlcci nt the Camp
of the Fourteenth Begiment were conducted
by Kev. L. Macuire, an old Methodist
minister, and chaplain of the regiment. The
audience sang "Come, Thou Fount of Every
Blessing." Chaplain Maguire announced
bis text, "Trust in tbe Lord and do good,
so shalt thou dwell in the land." Before
delivering his sermon tbe congregation
sang "Jesus, Lover of My Soul," and while
it was being sung Mr. George "W. Moses
went up to the pastor and said:
"Cora, my wife, sang that while we were
floating down the river, and we were both
Dr. .Maguire said that there were 1,074
members of the Stone Church in Johnstown
and only 37 were lost Kev. Mr. Colliven
then made a few remarks. He was followed
by John Fulton, General Manager of the
Cambria Iron "Works, who told a tragic tale
of the flood and otthe evidence of the power
of God in saving some who wept this morn
ing instead of being grate !ul.

briskly into Superintendent Pit cairn's, pri

and Mr. Pitcairn and Vice President; King,
of the Baltimore and Ohio, appeared per
fectly satisfied. All expressed themselves
so in hearty terms, but, with one exception,
declined to talk about the meet'.ng. They
referred the anxious correspondents, who
had been kept out by a guard c onsisting of
a lieutenant colonel, a lieutenai it and a sen
try, to Governor Beaver, who, grasping sev
eral he knew by the hand, sts jted for Vice
President King's private car j accompanied
by a staff officer, an orderly and a represent
ative from each of the cress rtssociations. To
a stenographer in the car he dictated a
statement which was given, to each of the
J. B. Scott dictator of Johnstown and
vicinity. told the correspondents that the
Governor would relieve the present director
ate and management of its responsibilities
on "Wednesday of the present week. He
said a commission was to be appointed
which would take chrirge of the work of
clearing Johnstown. The commission will
be appointed under the provisions of a law
that authorizes the State to provide for the
purity and purificfition of streams. As to
how the money is to be raised, he was unable
to state. The com mission, when appointed,
would have to de-side that matter for itself.
Contributions would undoubtedly continue
to be needed. T'aey certainly would be for
relief, and possibly for the sanitary work as
No Special Session nt All.
"No," Mr. Scott said, with some em
phasis, "there will be no special session of
the Legislatfire." So said every one ap
proached on the subject
General Hastings later stated to The
Dispatch (correspondent that after
"Wednesday he would have complete charge
of Johnstown. "Whatever commission may
or may not be appointed, he will be in
active command. "There will be no martial
law," he said, "as nothing of the kind is
provided for in the laws of Pennsylvania.
The military will continue to do guard
duty, aided by civil guards, merely as a
police measure.
"I cannot say whether or not more troops
will be ordered here. That is for future
consideration. My first work will begin to
morrow at the dam at the bridge, and I will
gradually work in from that to full control
of not only the cleaning of the town, but of
the, distribution of relief. The commissary
and quartermaster's departments of the
National Guard will be used for this pur
pose. They have been here since last week,
and are by this time familiar with the
ground and the conditions.
"There are 350 men at work on the dam
to-day. I will soon have a force equivalent
to 2,000 men at work on it, and will have it
ail cleared away within a week. The force
will be principally in the shape of hoisting
engines. The additional men will not num
ber more than 20, and will probably not ex
ceed 175. The work, I think, will progress
rapidly. I will do everything in my
A Survey of the Dam.
General Hastings went on horseback this
evening, with Mr. Flinn, and took a survey
of tbe dam. The latter gentleman will with
draw all his men on "Wednesday, except
those who may choose to remain here, and
General Hastings will make his own ar
rangements for the necessary labor. Captain
Jones, Mr. Hartman and others will remove
their own employes also. The camp, as at
present arranged for the laborers, will be
used by General Hastings for the men
he employs. The tents are, for the most
part, the property of Ohio. Such as are
private property will be taken away with
the withdrawal of the men.
The dining sheds, commissary sheds and
stables will stand as at present Cooking
camps will also have to be supplied, but
General Hastings may be able to make ar
rangements to keep those now here. "With
the arrangement that will be made to sub
stitute steam for muscle, the work will pro
gress much more rapidly, and it will not be
necessary to make such extensive camp pro
vision. Two steam hoisters are now at work
on the dam, and to-morrow there will be ad
ditional ones.
There were present at the conference to
day Governor Beaver, Colonel School
maker, Messrs. "William McCreery, S. S.
Marvin, H. I. Gonrley, "W. K. Ford, J. B.

was had.
The Governor's Scheme.
The Governor indulged in a long talk re
viewing the situation and making many
Mr. "William McCreery, Chairman of the
Belief Committee, then made a long state
ment, and said he thought it was time the
relief committees were relieved of the work
oi clearing away the debris by the State.
The Governor said all the necessary
money conld be raised; that there were
2C0 men who would become responsible
for $5,000 each: that he would give his bond
to the State Treasurer for 1,000,000, with
those 200 men as bondsmen, and the
State Treasurer wonld then pay out the
$1,000,000 for the necessary work. "When
the Legislature met tbe money withdrawn
from the Treasury could be appropriated.
He said that the money already subscribed
should be used entirely for the relief of the
sufferers, and the money from the State
Treasurer be used for restoring the vicinity
to its condition before the flood.
All debts already contracted for
the removal of debris should be paid, bnt
All Money mid Oat
for this purpose from the relief fund shall
be refunded, so that every cent subscribed
for relief of the stricken people shall be 1
used for that purpose alone. The Governor
has $250,000 in his hands now for the relief
fund. A committee of seven well-known
men ot the State will be appointed to dis
tribute the relief fund, and the present Be
lief Committee is to continue the work of
relief till the commission is "appointed.
After the commission has been appointed
the future operations of the Pittsburg Be
lief Committee rests with them. The re
port of the above meeting, from where the
Governor's views are given, was furnished
by the Associated Press. Simpson.

A Lndy Who Stabbed Herself to tub Henrt
With a Penknife.
IFeom a staff cokrxspoxiiejit.3
Johnstown, June 9. Last Sunday it
was reported that a number of drummers
had committed suicide rather than face the
waters, but tbe report could not be verified.
The first real suicide was discovered by Dr.
Jessop to-day. He noticed a slight cnt
below the heart of a lady, and on probing
the wound he found the blade of a knife
sticking between the ribs. The blade, about
three inches long, extended in beyond the
apexof the heart.
It was a small penknife, and the doctor
thinks the lady committed suicide. The
wound was in a fatal spot, and the position
of the knife in that part of the body couldn't
be accounted for on any other theory than
that the poor woman took her own life.
Father Tnhnney Says If There Wns Any Pool

Johnstown, June 9. The Eev. Father
Tahaney claims that the reports that the
people at the time of the flood were warned,
either by telegram or messenger, are false.
He was out among the people almost the
entire day, and if any .warning had heen
given he would certainly have been cogni
zant of the fact
This is important, coming from so reliable
and well-known authority, and will have
considerable influence in settling a much
disputed question. Morton.

Johnstown, June 9. The suicide to-day of

camp. It was learned from his brother-in-law
Corporal Stimmel, of the same comnahy, that
Private Young was subject to fits of mental
"Last -fall, about apple-picking time," said
Mr. Stimmel, "ho became possessed of the
idea that there was a man in the woods who in
tended to shoot him. To-day he attended the
religious service, and when be came back he
said some one was golDg to hang him. He
stood on the bank there until after the steeple
of the church had been blown down. Five
minutes later we heard a shot in his tent, just
back of Captain Nesbit's, and we found him
dead. The bullet had gone through his head
and out through the roof of the tent He was
quite cheerful when we left home, and was
very anxious to come. 1 suppose the surround
ings affected his mind."
Ho Meant to Kill Himself.
"I heard tho shot," said Captain Nesbit, "in
the tent just back of me, and beard the rattling
oftheaamrod. It looks as though Young had
put the gun to his head, and used the ramrod
to pull the trigger, for It lay beside him. He
had been complaining of feeling unwell, and
yesterday I relieved him of guard duty mtho
afternoon, but learned that he volunteered to
guard the town last night He had been suf
fering from constipation, and I told him to get
some medicine from the surgeon. It was in his
pocket untouched to-day. He had a delusion
that he had lost all his friends. His brother
told me how he cured him last fall, and I had
a notion to try it myself, but did not I am
very glad now I didn't speak harshly to him.
Had! done so, and this happened I could
never have forgiven myself."
Private Young lived at Toms Bun.
He was a farm laborer by occupation.

to Blnmo for the Disaster.
Chicago, June 9. Nearly a full dozen clergy
men throughout Chicago, and representing
almost that number of different denominations,
preached to-day upon the subject of the Johns
town horror. The prevailing public sentiment
was voiced most strongly, perhaps, by tho Bev.
J. L. 'Wlthrow, pastor of the Second Presby
terian Church, one of the largest congregations
in the West
Dr. Withrow declared that the calamity
could not be classed as an "act of God" and the
responsibility laid on the Almighty. He said
in substance that the real burden of blame
pressed upon the shoulders of the Pittsburg
club, whose thoughtless selfishness was more
concerned in maintaining a pleasure resort than
in tbe safety of thousands of their fellowmen.

Tho Almost Miraculous Rescue of n Missing
New Haven, June 9. An extraordinary
case of babes in the woods is reported from the
charcoal district on Salisbury mountain, near
Jeails village. Four miles from the settlement,
in the thickest of the mountain woods, is an
encampment of charcoal burners, among them
bein Andrew Fowler. On Thursday two little
children of Fowler's wandered from the pater
nal hut The oldest one was readily found,
but the other, a child of 3 years,
became frightened and strayed so far away as
to become lost. All attempts 'to discover it
were futile, and when tbe storm of Friday and
Saturday set in it was not. doubted that the
little one would die from exposure. The ex
citement among the farmers became intense
and a searching party was organized, compris
ing 1S3 men, who, with flaming torches and
lanterns, scoured the woods for miles around.
It was not until 2 o'clock on Saturday after
noon that their search was rewarded. Thpn
the child was found In a secluded spot in a
mo-sy glen, where it bad fallen. The little
thing was without stockings, shoes or hat, and
had been out in tho woods for three days and
two nights, crawling here and there, without
any protection from the pitiless storm which
raged almost incessantly.
istrange to say, the child was apparently un
harmed and did not appear to he much the
worse from its thrilling and hazardous adven
ture. Durii.g the search a number of men be
came lost in the forest, and it was some time
before all were accounted for by rollcall. The
hardy fellows then ranged themselves in line,
and such was the desire to see the tough little
specimen of humanity that had suffered so
many hardships that the child, after being fed,
was wrapped in a blanket and passed along the
line to be looked at It was greeted with
hearty cheers.
A Jxnther mixed up unse uoncernlns a
Confederate Note.
New York, June 9. Florence Mc
Carthy, of 216 West Twenty-seventh street,
who works in Carey & Moon's steel factory,
received $33 un May 29 as his fortnight's wages.
He was paid with a$20note,a J10 note and three
silver dollars. When Florence reached home
he gave his aged mother a 20 note. She
straightway went to Mrs, Catharine O'Dea, who
keeps a grocery at 219 in the same street,
where Mrs. McCarthy has been in the habit of
running up fortnightly bills. Mrs. McCarthy
paid her bill, which amounted to a littlo oyer
Sfi, and received something more than 13 in
change. On Friday afternoon, when the
baker s man came to collect Bis Dill from Mrs.
O'Dea, she banded him a $20 note; be banded
back the note, laughing, and asked her if she
expected him to turn in a Confederate note to
his employers.
Mrs. O'Dea said that this was the note that
she had got fiom Mrs. McCarthy. She sent her
son with tho note to Mrs. McCarthy. Mrs. Mc
Carthy bad not noticed the note particularly.
She knew nothing about Confederate money.
She thought that very likely it was this
Confederate note that she had given to Mrs.
O'Dea, but Florence said that be knew better.
He declared that tbe bill he had given his
mother was the one he had received from his
employer and was genuine, and he advised
Patrick not to try to bluff him.
The Biff Bell on City Hull Breaks Loose and
Frightens Citizens.
When the alarm from -box 313 was sounded
shortly before 9 o'clock last night the electric
machinery of the big bell in City Hal got out
of order and went tapping away for a couple of
minutes. Tbe unusual ringing caused great
excitement, and in a moment apparently all
the streets were filled with people anxious to
learn the cause of the strange alarm. Many
thought it was a call for the Eighteenth Begi
ment to go to Johnstown; others thought a big
fire had broken out at City Hall, while many
more thought a riot had broken out and the
call was lor tbe police. A grand rush was
made for Central station, and when the peace
ful condition of the officers sitting about there
was seen the crowd carried the word along and
soon dispersed.

ber who committed suicide several weeks ago.
The earments were cut off his dead body.
x.viueuuD buai. ur. cronin was, as ne always
claimed to be, one of LeCaron's bitterest ene
mies is accumulating slowly but surely. He
opposed the British spy at every opportunity,
both in and out of the Clan-Na-Gael. and did
everythlnjfin his power to prove that lie Caron
was a man unworthy of confidence.
About two yearsago, when LeCaron undertook
to obtain admission to the Illinois Catholic
Order of Foresters, Cronin defeated his admis
sion by means of a letter which he wrote the
then Secretary of St Aloysius Court. In the
letter ho charged that Le Caron was unfit to be
a Forester and intimated broadly that he was
a hireling of the British Government. Le
Caron sought admission to the order through
Officer Houhllan. of the Fourteenth street
station, and Houhllan. before filing the spy's
application, spoke to Dr. Cronin about It
The doctor promptly advised him to drop the
matter, but in order to make doubly sure that
Le Caron would not slip in by a trick, the doc
tor wrote the denunciatory letter to the Sec
retary. That settled Le Caron's aspirations.
This letter is locked in a vault in Sodality
hall. It will bo read officially in every
court of the Foresters during the next
week for the purpose of dissipating
tho Idea that Cronin ever entered
the business of selling the secrets of the Irish
Americans to the English Government There
is another thing that goes to show no love was
lost between Le Caron and Cronin. The former
was not only a member of the committee that
tried and expelled him on Policeman Brown's
charge of treason, but he was also one of the
chief witnesses against tho doctor.
One of the most sensational clews the police
have run down came from Lake View last Fri
day. It is a story to tho effect that Mrs. Bohde,
who lives on Woodside avenue, bad washed a
lot ot bloody clothes and a carpet for P. O.
Sullivan, the ice man, less than a week
after Cronin was murdered. The man
who gave this information declared he
heard Mrs. Bnhde tell this story a half
dozen times. To-day, however, when Acting
Superintendent Behutler- visited tho woman
she flatlv denied tho storv that she had made
any such declaration. She admitted having
washed P. O. Sullivan's clothes on May 1 and
again on May 7, but declared that there was not
a drop of blood on them. Mrs. Bohde will be
summoned to appear before the Coroner's jury.
Chief Hubbard to-day received a telegram
from Now York to the effect that one of tho
two suspects whom Inspector Byrne's officers
are shadowing has snddenlv disappeared. His
comrade, however, was seen to-day.

Rosebud Agency, Dak., June 9. The
Sioux Commissioners have Tested to-day,
but feel very much encouraged over the re
sult of yesterday's work, and are hopeful
thathy Tuesday nitjht or "Wednesday, at
least, they will.have the required 1,050
voters necessary to make a majority of
the Indians at the agency. The redskins have
spent tlie day discussing the provisions of the
bill, and it is evident that those in favor of
signine aro doing good work among their more
obstinate brethren. The half-breeds are nearly
all favorable to the bill and desire to dispose of
the lands asked therein and settle
down and get the benefit of tho
very liberal provision made for them
by Congress. In a speech at the Council
last night a half-breed told the Indians that
thev were too slow and should make up their
minds at once. This aroused the ire of the red
men, who object to bo hurried, and there were
low cries of "Kill him," "Kill him." For a
time it looked as if violence wonld be at
tempted, but order was finally restored.
Some of the Indians want the commissioners
to call a grand council of all tbe Indians on the
various leservatlons, and say they could then
all counsel together and makeup their minds.
This, the commissioners explained, thev could
not do, as they were under orders to visit each
agency, and must obey the Great Father's
word. So far 453 signatures have been secured,
not quite half enough at this agency. A fail
ure here means a failure at tho other agencies,
and the commission will use every art of
suasion known to induce the Indians to sign.
Some of Them Put on the Witness Stand

that there was something supernatural about
tho affair. Questions were propounded by tbe
audience, such as "Have-we any proof of im
mortality?" "Can we communicate with the
dead?" "Can spirits foretell future events?"
Tho answers seemed to satisty most people
present and they reported spiritual manifesta
tions professedly recognized by all the audi
ence. There was a talk on reincarnation, and
the lady gave several psychometric readings.

Pahis, June 9. The grand steeplechase at
Auteuil to-day was won by Le Torpllleus, with
The Sikk second and Fairfox third. There

At the Btart Primaute, Fairfox and Trinidad
took tbe lead, with Lord Chatham and Bellona
In the rear. The lot kept a steady pace to the
big brook, which all cleared in fine style. At
the wall Chipneway fell, throwing his rider,
who, however, regained his seat On the third
round Chippeway took the lead, but he was un
able to maintain it, and retired.
On tbe last round Primaute and Royal Meath
fell, and Lord Chatham, who was in front took
the wrong course, thus spoiling his chanco of
winning. Bellona and Fetich' were the next
to fall. La Torpilleus then drew to tbe front
and won by a length. Grand steeplechase de

Ex-Senator Sabln Waats n Divorce From
His Wife on the Charge of Drunken
ness Tho Case Began ta a
Minnesota Coart Its
Probable Be
- snlr.
St. Paul, June 9. A divorce case has
heen begnn-in the district court of "Washing
ton county of the most sensational charac
ter, both on account of the national prom
inence oi the parties and from the shocking
facts which surround the proceedings in
whispers. Thisisnoless than a suit brought
by ex-Senator D. M. Sabin against his wife.
The summons was served personally upon
Mrs. Sabin at Flushing, Lone Island,
something over a week ago, but the com
plaint has not yet been filed in court
The charge made in the complaint is that
of habitual drunkenness, an allegation
which in itself will be most shocking to the
society of Washington and other cities
where Mrs. Sabin has long been a shining
light. It is asserted that Mrs. Sabin had
for some time previous to her marriage been
an invalid, and during that time became
addicted to the use of morphine. The habit,
it is claimed, has been indulged in to a
greater of less extent ever since, and in
later years she has added to it the
use of intoxicating liquors. It is
stated that during the absence
from home of Mr. Sabin she occasionally
indulged in liquors and drugs to excess.
At the close of Mr. Sabin's Senatorial ca
reer Mrs. Sabin was placed, at her own re
quest, in the Asylum for Inebriates at
Flushing, where she is at the present time.
Socially, Mrs. Sabin is a most fascinating
lady, and during Mr. Sabin's Senatorial
career in Washington she gave weekly re
ceptions, which were among the most popu
lar given by any lady in that city, and
attended by the most distinguished people.
Itis doubtful whether the fault of which
she is charged in the complaint ever became
apparent to any of her Washington guests,
or came to the knowledge of her friends
there. Mr. and Mrs. Sabin have no chil
dren of their own. The fact that a suit is
commenced will be news to all, J. N.
Searles, of Stillwater, is Mr. Sabin's attor
ney. What course Mrs. Sabin will pursue
is not yet known, bat it is believed she will
not resist the suit. She has still many
warm friends, and will be the subject of
wide sympathy. The ex-Senator also has
the sympathy of all who- know him in this
most unfortunate affair.

President Nlinlck Makes an Encouraging
Statement Aboat the Clab.
President Nlmlck made the Important state
ment yesterday that so tar this season tbe local
club had not lost a cent. Mr. Nimick ought to
be in a position to know, hut other officials ot
the clnb stated a few days ago that the club
had at least lost SIO.OCO. It will be seen that
there is a wide discrepancy between the two
statements, but there is no reason whatever to
think that Mr. NImick's statement is not cor
rect It is safe to say that it is, and it must be
accented as true.
This declaration on the part of Mr. Kimlck
will undoubtedly be a surprise to many people:
however, it is a pleasure to say that the sur
prise will be a happy one. Daring a conversa
tion yesterday afternoon, Mr. Niralck said:
"The club has not lost a cent so far, bnt it
has made nothing. Ot course, our receipts are
short of what they wero last year at this time,
and that may in a measure be deemed a loss. If
we bad been at home last month instead of be
ing abroad we would have been considerably
out of pocket, as tho weather has been
wretched here. However, I still have the ut
most confidence in the team. 1 feel certain
that the boys will come out all right as soon as
our pitchers get into condition. Certainly I
think Manager Phillips did light In putting
Staley in to pitch first at Cleveland.
"I believe in trying the youngsters as much
as much as possible; not only Staley, bnt the
others also. All that is needed at present is
patience and public encouragement Nothing
will do tbe players more good than words of
cheer by the press. They are passing through
great difficulties, and they need kindly words
rather than censure,"
President Nimick is in receipt of a circular
from President N. E. Young regarding the de
mands and propositions of the Players'
Brotherhood. Each club President in the
League has been supplied with a copy, but tbe
definite contents of the circular are rigidly
kept secret However, it is known that
the object of tho circular is to secure
the opinions of the various Presi
dents on the matter. Mr. Nimick has
not declared himself on the qnestion yet
and will not likely do so until his and the other
Presidents' opinions have been forwarded to
headquarters. While it may be taken for
granted that tbe club will stick rigidly to a
limltationofs.ilaryruIe.it may be that It will
be willing for some change in the present
graded salary plan. That plan seems doomed,
and it is interesting to note how leading au
thorities are now advocating objections to it
that were pointed out in this paper when tbe
J Ian was hurriedly adopted. Here is Presi
ent J. B. Day's latest opinion, as expressed to
Mr. Lamer, of Washington:
"While Mr. John B. Day was here last Mon
day I had tho pleasure of a few minutes' chat
with him at Capital Park, on the subject of the
classification rule. He denounced the system
in most emnhatic terms, and argues that every
clnb should have tho privilege of sayine how
much it can afford to pay its players. He in
sists that he is better able to judge bow much
be can pay certain players than President
Youngior any other man who is not familiar
with his individual affairs. Mr. Day does not
appear to have any well-defined system to sub
stitute for the classification rnle, yet he claims
that he Is not an advocate of fancy salaries, and
asserts that tbe abolition of tbe classification
rule will be beneficial to the weaker as well as
the stronger clubs. He has not jet furnished
me with a satisfactory explanation of his propo
sition, but I suppose he has one. He says he
would be in favor of a salary limit, and wonld
lire up to it if tbe other clubs would do the
same. He says he would also be in favor of
pooling the receipts of all tho clubs and have
an equal division of the plunder. Mr. Day is a
great wag, and it is possible that he was guy
ing me. I could not help but wonder if he was
in earnest, and also whether he would have
suggested a division of the gate receipts if his
club had continued to play at the Polo
O. P. Caylor's opinion of it is as follows: "It
is not surprising that there is dissatisfaction
amone players and club owners over the classi
fication rule as it exists in the League. Tbe
result is natural. The League and the Association-
are a great deal like the two houses of
Congress in their relations to each other. You
can't make radical rales for one and not for the
other so long as tho two is governed by a code
of general laws. The class rule will never work
satisfactorily in one body while it Is ignored by
the other. It will neverwork well either until
the players have a voice in the classification.
I would rather trnst men like Anson and
Comlskey to do this work than any League or
Association 'magnate' or officer. Let the
players have a voice In the matter and I'll war
rant the total sum of salaries will not be in
creased thereby, but there will be live times
the satisfaction given that there is given now
by the Leaguo rules."
These expressions of opinion are significant
and thongb, as above stated, the objections are
not new. they will bear rtpeatine by in
fluential gentlemen like Messrs. Day and

Philadelphia, June 9. Arthur Irwin, for
so long the Captain of the Philadelphia team,
has been sold to the Washingtons for a reported
sum of J3.0OO. The sale of Irwin's release was
consummated on Saturday when President
Walter Hewitt came here and made an offer
which President Reach accepted. The "Wash
ington club has been after Irwin for some time,
but President Hewitt would not agree to pay
the sum demanded for his release until he was
forced to do so for want of a 'competent short
stop for his team.
Irwin will receive a salary of $3,200 and will ba
captain of the Senators. John Morrill will still
play on the team and bo manager, while Irwin
will have exclusive control of the Senators
while on the field. The Philanelphias, as re
constructed, will include Ward, late of New
Orleans, on second, Hallman at short and Fo
garty as captain.
A Correction.
There was a rignificant error in paragraph
headed, "It is Really Robbery," in Pringle's
Review yesterday. The sentence: "There are
gentlemen financially interested in baseball
every year, while, on the other hand, there is
scarcely a ball player in tbeLeagnewho can
save considerably every year," should hava
read: "There are gentlemen financially inter,
ested in baseball who are losing money every
year, while, on the other hand.tbere is scarcely
a ball player in the Leaeuo who cannot sava
considerable every year."
Favored Detroit.
Buffalo, N. Y., Jane 9. Last week's
change in the International League schedulo
benefited the Detroit club. That club by
superior playing advanced from fifth to third
plnce. Toronto and Rochester characterized
their games by miserable work,, bnt Toronto
has beaten Rochester in pretty good style.
Buffalo is weak in the pitcher's box, and all
that Jack Rowe and Deacon White have done
seems unavailing. They must get new pitchers
or stay at the bottom.

Kelly, the Gecser's, Smart Trick John
Murphy Dying.
John Temple, the well-known horseman ol
this city, retained from the East on Saturday,
and dnring a conversation yesterday said soma
interesting things about the Eastern trotters
and drivers. He related an amusing incident
regarding the well-known Kelly, the "Geeser."
Kelly was recently driving a young trotter in a
race where Mr. Wood Martin was judge.
Kelly had won two heats and Mr. Martin bad
reason to call Kelly up to the stand and re
marked: "Now. Kelly, you must win this race."
Kelly replied: "Why now, Mr. Martin,
must' is pretty strong. You are an old horse
man yourself and yon come down and win with
the colt: I cannot, ha has not been worked so
ficlent." The "Geeser's invitation was not accepted,
bnt it quieted Mr. Martin. J
Mr. Temple also stated that "Uncle" John E.
Turner intends to take charge of a stable of
runners next fall. What he Intends to do with
his trotting stable is not definitely known. Mr,
Temple further gave information to the effect
that John Murphy, the famous driver, is dying,
and is not expected to live many days. Murphy
has had a long and honorable career. He was
never known to throw a race and was Mr. Bon
ner's private driver.

One of the leading surgeons in the Army,
made the following characteristic remark!
"Water kills more soldiers than bullets." His
meaning was, that soldiers who drank impure
water, died by disease in greater numbers than
thoso killed by bullets. Tbe surgeon was right.
Impure water, especially at this season, is a ter
rible causa of sickness and deatb. But tho pub.
lie say, what shall we do? There is but one sen
sible thine; to do, and that is to purify tha
water by mixing it with something that de
stroys all poison or disease-breeding germs, and
nothing does this like pure whiskey. But it
may be asked, where can I obtain pure
