" Manager Phillips and his team of ball
players left the city for New York last even
ins wtb- 'very 1!Snt hearts. Horace, par
ticularly, was cheerful and very hopeful of
great success. During yesterday he received
a dispatch from Kowe and White stating
that they will be in Xew York to-day, ready
' "This is very satisfactory news to me,"
said the manager, "as it means more things
than one. It means that the two players
have been playing hard every day on the
quiet, keeping themselves in condition. I
know that they would not commence play
ing at once if they were not in condition
to do so. I think we'll put a strong
team in against New York to-morrow.
Here is our nine. Gilt in. Miller, Hanlon,
Kuuday, Rowe. White. Dunlap. Carroll and
Xuenue left field. Now that aggregation looks
well on paper; doesn't it: Our two new players
may not be thoroughly efficient in team work
for a few dajs, bat to or three games will put
them all rieht. 1 fully expect
TO WIST A MAJORITY
of the games during our trip. We play six
straight with Cleveland, three after we leave
the East and the succeeding three on our own
Pitcher Conway will have a talk with Presi
dent Niniick to-day relative to resuming work.
. Conway is in condition to pitch, but he is not
inclined to run any risk by going into the box
too soon. As already stated in this paper he is
not receiving any pay from theclub, and, there
fore, need only report when be likes. It is un
derstood that his talk with Mr. Nimlck to-day
will relate to some guarantee against no pay If
Conway should join the team in tho East and
should his arm break down again. If nothing
satisfactory in that way can be agreed upon he
may remain at home until the club returns.
Harry fctaley's friends are also anxious that
Lis good ork be rewarded by a return of the
Sue that the club imposed on bim at Indian
apolis. ABOUT STALEY'S FINE.
It was stated last evening that Staleyhad
been conferring with Manager Phillips on the
matter, but that nothing definite was done.
One authority stated that Staler may either
have his fine returned or receive something
Undoubtedly, the team leaves home in a
stronger condition than ever a home club left
the city before. On paper the team looks as
strong as any in the country, and it may be that
during the balance of the season it will be as
strong as any ctherinactnal contest. Certainly
the pitching power is great, and if Conway
joins the team this week the prospects of vic
tory will be greater than ever. It does not
seem unreasonable to expect that the
team will win 8 of the 15 games
to be played while away from home. If this is
done it will l very satisfactory work away
from the home grounds. If Howe and White do
not strengthen the batting force almost everv
body interested in the club will be disappointed.
Nothing definite has been arranged relative
to the disposal of Smith. It is conjectured,
however, that if Pittsburg does not intend to
retain him he will still remain in the League.
However, when the club returns it is likely, if
all the players are in condition, that two or
three more players will be released.

HORACE BROWN'S FLYERS.
Some of His Young Trotters and Pacers
Bald to be Wonders.
"I was at Higblawn Farm, Lee, Mass., the
other daynd saw Horace W. Brown." re
marked an old turfite to me last evening.
"Everybody knows Horace. He is the man
that piloted Belle Hamlin, 2.1 to her mark,
as well as many other star performers of the
turf. But say, I honestly think he has tbe
best string of youngsters this year he ever bad.
Brown and his son are training 22, ranging in
age from 2-year-olds up to 9. Higblawn is one
of tbe prettiest located farms in the world, and
since the death of Eluur Smith it has been
under the management of J. G. Davis, a
Splendid gentleman by tbe way, too. Brown is
quite sweet on the bay horse Nominee 41S0,
age 4. by Stranger 3030, out of Sapphire,
by Jay Gould: second dam Lucy, record 2.1!,
made over the Buffalo track August 9, 1872:
Nominee combines the blood of Goldsmith
Maid, through Stranger, her son, and Lucy,
2 J&V. and sas if nothing happens to him he
win nave a recora some aay laster man eitner.
He can show a 220 clip now. Alfonso, bay
colt, aged 3, by Baron Wilkes. 2J.S, oat of Alma
Mater (dam of Alcantera, 223; Alcyone, 227.
and Arbiter. 2 JO), is very promising. He has
only been bitched to a sulky three times this
) ear. and can show a 2:10 clip. A full brother,
called Alexander, foaled 1887. shows great
speed, and the time is not later than 1890 when
both will enter tbe 2.3U list and add to tbe fame
of Alma Mater, already one of the greatest
brood mares of the time. Montezuma 2078 can
beat 2.30 any day. Berkshire Belle, age 3, by
Alcyone 732. out of Belle Brasfield, record 220,
made over tbe Buffalo track August 6, 1879; and
Little Turner, by Alcyone, out of Nettie (dam
of Jerome Turner, 2.15), as well as Lenox,
are all very likely candidates for 2.30 honors as
"A full brother to Jerome Turner, 2:15. is
likely to be a sensational pacer. Considering
the amount of training. Brown says be is the
fastest horse he ever sat behind. Brown has
five 3-ycar-olds and three 2-year-olds, and ex
pects to make a cood showing with them next
fall at tbe New England breeders' races.
"One of the young horses that is destined to
stop the ticker in 2.20 before the frost is on the
pumpkin is Suburban, owned by Mr. Spries, of
Glens Falls. He was sired by Altantra, out of
Flaxey (dam of Blondme. 2:24Ji), by Kentucky
Clay 191. Brown is delighted with the promis
ing young trotters, and says he ill put more
youngsters in tbe magic list this year than ever
before in a single season. His many friends
throughout the country will be delighted to
learn of his success, and trust the t'me is not
far distant when they will see his white silk coat
and cap leading the way on many occasions
around tbe great circuit tracks again, as in the
happy days gone by." Horseman.
THEY HAVE NEVER MET.
Singular Incident Relating to tbe Joint
Owners of Bell Boy.
Tbe equal owners of the $51,000 trotting stal
lion Bell Boy, Judson L. Clark, of Elmira, N.
Y., and George H. Hopper, of Unlonville, 0
have never met or seen each other, andthe way
their partnership was brought about is as fol
lows, says a cotemporary: Shortly before the
sale of Bell Boy at Lexington, in February,
Mr. Clark announced to a friend that he was
anxious to purchase Bell Boy, provided he
could get a partner to take an equal interest in
the horse, and asked this friend if he could
seenre him such a partner. A few days after
ward his friend was Btanding in the rotunda of
a New York hotel and overheard George H.
Hopper, the wealthy Standard oil man, making
a remark to a companion" similar to what Mr.
Clark bad said, that he would like to find some
one to go into partnership with him in the pur
chase of Bell Boy.
Mr. Clark's friend stepped over to Hopper
and told him that Mr. Clark also desired a part
ner for the same purpose, and a short talk be
tween the gentlemen resulted in Mr. Hopper
opening a correspondence with Mr. Clark. By
letter tbey arranged that Mr. Clark should go
to Lexington and make the purchase at any
price, and Mr. Hopper agreed to put up half
tbe money. Mr. Clark went to Lexington and
Eurcbased tbe lamous stallion, and Mr. Hopper
as paid bis half of the purchase money.

The Farnell Branch Withdraws From tbe
Philadelphia Local Council.
rsrrctAL telegram to tui dispatch.!
Philadelphia, July 7. The regular
meeting of the Parnell branch of the Irish
National League, the most important branch
in this city, was held this afternoon in Phil
opatrian Hall. After the transaction of
routine business, P. McFadden.the branch's
representative to the municipal council,
tendered his resignation as delegate.
Mr. McFadden said that he would no longer
serve as a member of the central body, as
he did not consider those now in control fit
representatives of the Irish race. The res
ignation was accepted, and immediately
Owen Kelly arose and moved that until a
radical change was made in the control of
the Municipal Council the Parnell branch
refuse to be represented therein.
Mr. Kelly's motion was adopted, and the
Secretary, Martin I. J. Griffin, was in
structed to notify the officials of the Na
tional League of the action taken by the
Farnell branch. After adjournment Vice
President Meakin said: "The action jit
taken is one which should be promptly fol
lowed by enough branches to force a dis
ruption of the Municipal Council. A reor
ganization could then be effected and men
given control who would have th1) confi
dence of decent, honest Irishmen."

The Chicago Brlckmaker Will Make a

Chicago, July 7 Brickmaiers' Assembly
1771 to-day took very decided action in
reference to the strike now in progress at
the Blue Island yards. They voted $1,000
to aid the men now out on the eight-hour
issue, and a weekly assessment of $1 on
each of their 3,000 members, which will be
continued as long as the fight lasts. They
also expressed their ability and determina
tion to increase this appropriation as it
might be necessary.
"This is not an ordinary strike for in
creased wages," said tbe Chairman of the
assembly to a reporter. "We are making a
fight for an eight-hour law in all the yards
tributary to our assembly; a fight in which
all the trades are interested. The report
that the men are returning to work, which
has been given out by the proprietors of the
yards, is in a great measure a false one."

where they registered as man and wife.
He tried to induce the woman to marry

SOME TERT SIGNIFICANT REMARKS
ISFECIAL TELIOKAKTO TUI DISPATCn.1
Tokoxto, July 7. General Butler's
speech on the annexation of Canada to the
United States to the students of Colby Uni
versity, Maine, last week, has
been much talked of here
and has elicited much favorable
comment from representative Canadians. It
has done much and will do more to con
ciliate Canadians whose ire was aroused by
what is termed here bombastic speeches
of those who threatened Canada
with non-intercourse and other inconvenient
measures for the purpose, it was thought.of
inspiring the people of the Dominion with
a desire for annexation.
Canadians are naturally and pardonably
proud of their country, aud the .fondest
hope they cherish is one of independence
and tbe building np of a great nation
like that of the republicans to the south of
them. But the fact can no longer be con
cealed that, with tbe more enlightened,
the impression that Canada's
in annexation to the United States is rap
idly gaining ground in the Dominion.
There are many causes at work to
create this impression. The strongest is
the race question. Until a few days ago the
only spirit aroused by the anti-Jesuit agita
tion of the Protestants of Canada in their
opponents was a spirit of self-defense.
Now the French-Canadian Boman Cath
olics of Canada have assumed different tac
tics. They have thrown off the garb of the
oppressed ahd are openly aggressive. Hard
ly a day passes that some taunt or insult is
not offered by the French-Canadians to tbe
The following may be given as fa sample
of the spirit with which the French Cana
dians are meeting the attacks of the Protest
ants of Canada on Boman Catholic aggres
sion. The Standard, ot Montreal, a lead
ing French Canadian organ, in a recent
A PERTINENT QTJEET.
"Why should we renounce our language, our
laws and our customs, which are better than
theirs (the English)? We already have
all tbe elements that constitute a na
tion. The French - Canadian national
feeling is very lively in our whole
population, and It would be next to impossible
to uproot it. Let our fellow citizens of
English origin, therefore, come to us.
We iwill receive them with open
arms, and like . those living in our
Canadian parishes who have contracted family
alliances with us, they will soon be as good
French Canadians as ourselves."
At a French Canadian gathering held in
Quebec a few days ago, the rallying cry
was: "Our institutions, our language
and our laws," and to a lead
ing French Canadian is attributed this
remark: "In 60 years, by our natural in
crease, we shall number 50,000,000 of people
and shall control Canada." One of
the speakers at this gathering boasted
that it would not be very long
before the French Canadians would have
the majority in the electorate of the Do
minion. HER GOWNS FOR A DAT.

There is such a pretty Frenchwoman stay
ing at onr hotel, writes a lady from Paris.
She and I have had some long talks on va
rious subjects chiefly dress. She goes to
Deanville to-morrow, and I have been an
amused spectator of the gradual collecting
of her trousseau for the bains de mer. She
intends changing her dress five times a day
on fine days, and two or three times on wet
ones, when she cannot go out. Five or six
different costumes are supplied for each of
these changes, and for each costume there
are hose, hat, gloves, sunshade and fan to
Her traveling dress is in beige-colored
vigogne. The skirt is gathered into the
bodice, the collar and cuffs of which are in
old silver. This may surprise you, but it is
one of fashion's latest freaks. The metal is
of the thinnest, aud is laid over the velvet
or cloth of the collar and cuff beneath. The
buttons match the old silver. The traveling
cloak is made of the same material as the
dress, and has some handsome passementerie
upon it. It fastens with a long silk cord.
Her gowns for one day are as follows:
Morning gown of embroidered batiste, lined
with silk, and trimmed with a profusion of
lace and ribbon. Very short skirt in ac
cordion pleats from the waist. This is to be
changed for the early promenade for a
foulard with plain pleated skirt. The
bodice is made with a Figaro vest over a
batiste chemisette. With this goes a
Lamballe straw hat, matching the color of
the dress, and trimmed with bows of shaded
velvet, Next comes a mid-day toilet in
surah. The bodice, otherwise plain, has a
silver collar and cuffs. Over this is
passed the straight, round skirt, and the
junction of the two is hidden by a band of
black velvet, or a belt to match the collar
and cuffs. From 2 o'clock to 5 is to be worn
a more elaborate dress of white muslin em
broidered over its entire surface, mounted
upon a silk lining and flounced roucd the
edge with Valenciennes lace. The bodice is
made with a deep lace cllar, and opens in
front over soft trills of the lace. The sleeves,
reaching only to the turn ot the elbow, nre
deeply frilled with "Valenciennes. The
Directoire hat is in biscuit-colored straw,
trimmed witb roses and foliage.
From 5 o'clock to 7 is brought forth the
climax of this crescendo of elaboration. It
is a black lace dress, with a lace redingote
opening over a lace skirt. Bound the edge
of the latter are three bands of narrow vel
vet, pale green in color. Similar bands run
round the collar, the cuffs and the belt at
the waist. A black Bubens hat is to be
worn with this.
TOO MUCH STILE.

New York Snn.l
There was a funny scene at the entrance
to the big bridge on the Brooklyn side the
other day. A little after 5 o'clock in the
afternoon a very pretty young woman sat
there in a dog cart. The dog cart was drawn
by two horses hitched in tandem style. A
footman stood at the head of the leading
horse. The horses were beautiful animals
in silver-mounted harness. The dog cart
was a lovely affair. Tbe footman had on a
brand-new unilorm of the most approved
English style. Tbe young woman tapped
her foot impatiently against the dashboard
of the dog cart, and looked longingly toward
the bridge entrance. Pretty soon a young
man came down from one of the trains. He
was dressed in the height ot fashion.. He
got into the dog cart with the young woman,
who looked at him rapturously. The young
man was evidently not accustomed to driving
horses hitched tandem. He took np the
reins nervously aud started the horse. The
leader moved a few steps, and then turned
at right angles to the other horse and stood
there calmly. .The young man tried to
bndge him, bnt tbe horse would not budge.
A crowd gathered aud laughed at the young
man's predicament. Finally the stolid
faced footman unfolded his rigid arms, got
down from the box, and pulled the obnoxious
leader into line. Then the horses started
and the gay equipage went slowly away.

morning, and will remain on duty until
after the fight comes off.
Tbe Military Preparations
in Louisiana are on a smaller scale. But
two companies, the Louisiana Field Artil
lery and the Louisiana Kifles were called
out. The first made n meacer show
ing at the armory, most of the ,
men being reported out of town,
whereas as it is known tbat a majority
of them want to go to the tight themselves.
Forty of the Louisiana Kifles reported.
Both companies are ordered to be on dnty
for service in the field and to report at 12:30
p. 2L at the depot of the
Queen and Crescent Railroad. Gov
ernor Nichoils this morning issued a
proclamation, which was served on the rail
road, calling its attention to an act of Legis
lature which requires any railroad to fur
nish transportation for the State troops
when required to do so by the
Governor. A demand for a special
was made which, it is understood, is
to leave here ten minutes after the prize
fight special. Adjutant General Fairies
says that he has received no orders from the
Governor. He is awaiting them, and will
do nothing until he bas received instruc
tions. He understood that the fight
wouldn't take place in Louisiana.
The Outcome In Donbt.
What will be the outcome of all this no
one can say, because no one knows what are
the instructions to the militia, whether to
stop the fight, to see no disturbance oc
curs, or only to escort the excur
sion to the Mississippi line and see
that the battle does not come off
in Lomsiana. It is thought that the latter
is the plan most likely to be pursued, but
the great question is whether the militia
train will ever reach the grounds. The im
pression prevails that it will be sidetracked
or that the pugilists or those who go to
see the fight will slip away from the troops
in some way and have the affair over before
the latter can come up with them. The
necessity for secrecy has induced the man
agers of the mill to re ruse to allow
any telegraphic communication with
the ring. There is to be no
wire there, and the correspondents will not
be allowed to send any specials from any
way stations on the route. They will have
to come back to New Orleans to reach a
telegraph station, when there will be a nice
rush for it.
The Scene of the Battle.
It became known to-night that the place
finally selected for the fight was Bichburg,
or Rich's Mills, in Marion county, Miss.,
103 miles from New Orleans, in the midst of
a dense pine forest. This fact leaked out, and
the Sheriff of that county and the comman
dant of the Mississippi troops at Nicholson
telegraphed to Governor Lowry for instruc
tions, asking whether they were authorized
to tear np the track to prevent the passage
of tbe prize fight train. He answered, telling
them to take anysteps that were necessary to
prevent the fight occurring in Mississippi;
not to tear up the track, but to place such
obstructions on it as to prevent the passage
of trains, if necessary, and to notify the
railroad authorities of what bad been done.
This is the plight those in New Orleans
find themselves at midnight. The Sghters
are safe in Mississippi, beyond the troops,
and are now at Bichburg, where the battle
will take place. The troops, by constant
marching, cannot hope to reach Bichburg
before noon to-morrow.
Canght In a Trap.
Should the authorities interpret the
Governor's instructions to obstruct tbe
track as meaning the stoppage of
the trains containing' the thousands
on the way to the fight, there
will be a great many disappointed men and
the battle may be decided without any eye
witnesses at the regular time, but those
who have secured tickets to the mill are
hopeful of getting through to Bichburg
without any interference,' claiming tbat, as
they are not principals, they are not amen
able to the law.
Itis raining heavily np the road at Hat-
tiesburg, and even lower down. The un
certainty of a battle was never greater than
now, and how Sullivan and Kilrain can
escape arrest is something that will take
considerable figuring to get aronnd. It
looks as though they were caught like rats
in a trap.
SCENES AT MIDNIGHT.
Excited Men on Their Way to tbe Depot Fill
the Streets Hove Kllrala Hopes to
Win 8100 to $1,000 That Sulli
van Wins In One Round.
IBFXCIAL TXLXaBAM TO TRX DISrATCn.l
New Orleans, July 7. The streets are
filled with excited men at 11 o'clock to
night, on their way to the depot. There are
rumors withont number as to the attitude of
the authorities, and it is asserted by men in
almost the same breath that the fight will
come off and that it will not take place, but
everything points to the theory that the men
will begin hostilities at daybreak.
A gentleman who is intimate with Charles
Mitchell and Kilrain says that neither of
them believe tbat Sullivan is in as good
condition as his friends represent. Mitch
ell said: "It is not possible for a man to
drink and abuse his stomach as Sullivan
has done, and then recover perfectly. He
may appear to be all right, but not until he
is Hit there hard and good a dozen times
will its trne condition be apparent. His
stomacb has always been his weak point,
and Jake will take plenty ot time and pay
a zood deal of attention to it. Where Sul
livan once broke his arm, he may injure it
again, and in that event where would
he be? Jake has never injured his
stomach by dissipation, and he
has never had an arm broken; all his limbs
are perfect, Sullivan will try and rush
Jake all about. If helands, well and good;
but if Jake evades him he will soon tire
himself out, so that he will not be able to
stand on his lees. It he does, what a picnic
he will be for Kilrain!"
John T. Norris, the Springfield, O., de
tective, who escorted Kilrain safely through
Mississippi, received 5100 for that service.
He is to get $300 more if he lauds Kilrain
after the battle. He has a warrant for
J.ike's arrest an a charge of prize fighting
in Massachusetts. Jake will waive requi
sition and'John T. will take him into cus
tody. AVhen he gets him north of the Ohio
river his task is over, 'and Jake goes free.
The requisition will go no further.
Marsh ltedon, the well-known sporting
man, of this city, made a bet of $100 to
51,000, at 11 o'clock to-night, that Sullivan
will win the fight in one round.
There are some very slick pickpockets
and thieves in the crowd that is thronging
the streets, and many of the spectators of the
tight will come back considerable poorer
than they were going over Lake Pontchar
train at 1 o'clock.

Washington, July 7. Hon. J. Hale
Sypher, late a Congressman from Louisiana,
says of the probability of interference with
the Snllivan-Kilrain scrapping match: "I
wonld be willing to wager a new suit of
clothes or a basket of champagne, that the
Governors of Louisiana, Mississippi and
Texas will be eye witnesses of tbe Snllivan
Kilrain fight, and they will not go in an
official capacity, butt as spectators, and pnt
up for their tickets like any other American
citizens who desire to see the sport. The

man would raise his gun to prevent the
fight, and if the battlegronnd should be
pitched at a distance from the militia en
campment every man of them would stack
arms and hurry across the fields to the
scene of battle.
"I lived among the people of the Pelican
State long enough to know what their sen
timents are in such matters, and there seed
be no fear of interference with bull: lighting,
chicken fighting, encounters between dogs,
ana isst, oat not iet. especially with a
prize fight between such famous exponents
of the manly art as Sullivan and Kilrain."

And replied as follows:
You are stationed at that point to prevent the
light taking place in Mississippi. Yon bave
troops at your command. If needed. It is quite
easy to wire the railroad authorities that
special, bearing the prize fighters for fighting
in Mississippi, would not be allowed to pass
that station, but would be arrested, that any
attempt to pass will meet with serlons trouble,
not tearinc up track, but sufficiently obstruct
ing of track to prevent passing and to make ar
rests. By order of the Governor.
The Sheriff thus instructed is stationed at
Nicholson, near the Louisiana line, and is
supported by Colonel Morrill with a com
pany of infantry and a battery of artillery.
The Governor means business, though he
really has little belief that the light will
now be attempted in Mississippi.
SHEEMAN A PEIEST.
Archbishop Hjaa Conducts the Final Im-
presslve Ordination hervlees Tho
New Father's Blessing Upon
Mrs. Fitch, Flls Sister,
rSrCCtAL TXLZGBAM TO TUX PISFATCH.1
Philadelphia, July 7. Thomas Ew
ing Sherman was to-day ordained a priest
of the Catholic Church. The ceremony of
ordination was performed by His Grace,
Archbishop Bvan, and was witnessed
by many men and women eminent
in religions and social life. The
high social position occupied by the Sher
man family, with its branches of Biaines,
Ewiugs, Gillespies and others whose names
have had world-wide reputations, served to
make the ceremony one particularly notable
in the annals of religious history. On Fri
day Mr. Sherman was made a sub-deacon;
on Saturday he was raised to the honors of
deaconship and to-day's ceremonies clothed
him with the full powers and functions ot a
priest of the church.
Long before the hour' appointed for the
ceremonies crowds of curiosity seekers had
assembled aronnd the Arch Episcopal resi
dence seeking admission to the chapel, but
all were refused excepting those who had
been provided with cards of admission. At
9:15 the doors of the chapel were thrown
open and the relatives, friends and invited
guests took the places which had previously
been assigned th.ern. There was compara
tively little confusion or noise, the majority
of those in attendance evidently under
standing the services, while the few who
were there throngh enriosity preserved the
proprieties and were slow in manifesting
astonishmentat any of theimpressive forms
with which the ceremony was ccuducted.
At 9:30 the solemn ceremony of ordination
was performed. After the Archbishop aud all
the many assistants and attending priests,
except Father Sherman, bad left the sanctu
ary in procession, and after a long prayer in
silence, the yonng father arose and walked
over to where bis eldest sister, Mrs. Thomas
Fitch, was kneeling, and gave her his bless
ing. She kissed both his hands.
He then passed to his other sisters and
brothers, near relatives and friends and sol
emnly gave them his blessing. Betnrning
to the sanctuary, he turned and gave his
blessing to all those who were in attendance.
In order to avoid tbe crowd that was by
this time rather noisily trying to get near
bim, Father Sherman retired to the Arch
Episcopal residence, where hedistributed his
ordination cards to near friends and relatives.
Among the laity present were Mr. and Mrs.
Thomas Fitch, of Pittsburg, the oldest sis
ter of the yonng priest, bis other sisters.
Misses Lizzie and Rachel Sherman, and Mr.
D. Tzcumseh, of New York; Mrs. Colonel
Steel, an annt; Mrs. Colonel Coppinger. of
New York, a daughter of J. G. Blaine;
General Thomas Ewing, of New York; Com
mander Perry. United States Navy, Wash
ington, and Lieutenant John C. Wilson.
Invention of Omnibuses.
The invention of omnibuses is due to the
Philosopher7ascal, who, in February, 1667,
obtained a "privilege" what we should call
a patent for public carriages to travel
through certain streets of Paris. They held
eight passengers, who paid F sous each, and
were very successful, although an act of the
Parliament of Paris forbade them being nsed
by lackeys, soldiers and other humble folks.
Pascaldied in 1667, and his nseful invention
did not long survive him. The omnibus re
appeared in London about the beginning cf
this century, and was adopted in several
French provincial towns before Paris ac
cepted it again.
Why Yale Wins.
The athletic men of Yale sat down to a
banquet at 2 o'clock last Saturday morning
at the New Haven House. The banquet
lasted until nearly 7 o'clock. Not a solitary
person' was under the influence of liquor.
The wine and cigar bill for 40 men was less
than 555, and not a story was told that the
lady triends of those present might not have
heard The men spent their time in sing
ing, cheering aud exchanging views for the
further development of Yale athletics.

An Attempt Made to Place the National
Greenback Organization Once More

Washington, July 7. Mr. George C.
Jones, Chairman of the National Green
back party, has issued an invitation re
questing all persons who desire to aid in re
organizing the National Greenback party
to meet in their respective States and Con
gressional districts on or before September
4 next, and appoint one delegate and
one alternate to .attend the National
Greenback Convention called to meet
at Cincinnati September 12 next. The in
vitation is extended to "those who favor a
distinct American policy regarding its
finances, who believe that full, legal-tender
notes, greenbacks, issued by the Govern
ment for value received, in promoting the
general welfare, constitute the money
which marks our advancing civilization,
make the best money the world ever saw,
and should become the permanent circulat
ing medinm of the American people, tbe
life of whose free Government they saved,
and the party bearing their name should be
perpetuated to keep these great truths con
stantly before the people.
"Those who believe with the prophet of
old that 'monev answereth all things,' and
that no other reform ean be wisely consid
ered, nor honestly determined until tbe
freat economic wrongs brought about by
ad legislation have been corrected and the
money question forever settled in the inter
est of the whole people, and who are willing
to act in accordance with the spirit ot tbe
resolution passed bvthe Constitutional Con
gress in 1773, vizr Not to eat," drink, wear
nor use anything manufactured in Great
Britain; nor after one year, trade with any
one who deals in goods brought here under
the British flag."
The call says that the reorganized party
will also advocate the payment of
the public debt according to the
original contract under which they were
issued; the encouragement of the American
merchant marine and of home industries;
the limitation of the debts ot corporations to
the amount of stock actualty paid np; the
restriction of dividends of corporations to a
fair return on the investment, and the re
striction of private ownership of land.

The Fearful Conflagration That Devastated

Bakeksfield, Cal., July 7. This
afternoon fire broke out in the kitchen of
N. F. Kelsey's house, in the same block as
the Sontbern Hotel. In spite of all efforts
it spread to the adjoining building, also of
wood, and then to the Southern Hotel. From
there it spread rapidly, with the result that
every business house in town is bnrned, be
sides about 40 dwelling houses, involving a
loss of perhaps 51.250,000. The insurance
is 5300,000. The fire department could not

quickly, burned so fiercely and spread so
Thirteen blocks are wiped out. No hotel,

as the fire subsided measures were taken to
