GENERAL SFORT1KG KEWS OP THE DAT
There was a desperate prize fight near e
city yesterday morning with small gloves
between Corcoran and Joe the Kid. The
affair ended in a general row and had to be
declared a draw. President Hewitt defi
nitely states that there is no truth in the
report that Von der Ahe is to get the Wash
ington Ball Club. Almost all the players
in the New York team are charged with
indifferent playing. Captain Ansou is cer
tain that Chicago will win the League pen
nant It is some time since the local patrons of
the prize ring had such a lively time of it
as they had early yesterday morning. There
was not only a rattling argument in the
fistic arena, but something lite a Donny-brook-fair
row for a windup. The battle
was between Billy Corcoran, of this city,
and Joe the Kid, two lightweights. Cor
coran weighed about 131 pounds, while his
opponent was about a couple of pounds
lighter. The fight was governed by Queens
berry rules; small gloves were used, and
the purse was $100. The battle ground as
in a barn a few miles from Mansfield.
Eleven desperate rounds were fought, when
a free-for-all row commenced, and the con
stables put an end to the proceedings.
There was the customary trouble of getting
to tho battle ground and getting the men into
the ring. Tbe fight was arranged to take place
at 11 o'clock r. M., but owing to some misun
derstanding it did not start until after 1 o'clock
In tbe morning.
THE SELECT CEOWD
of SO present was a representative one. Busi
ness professionals. Justices of the Peace, con
stables and mill workers were all represented.
During tho delay tbe principals rested them
sehesin backs and tbe impatient crond nearly
sweltered to death in tbe hot barn full of im
Finally the principals entered the ring. Bil
son Jack seconded Corcoran and two unknown
men looked after Joe tbe Kid. and Josiah
Tompkins was referee and Frank Llndon time
keeper. When time was called tbe yonng
pugilists rushed to tbe center of the ring with a
defiant air. They didn't indulge in many pre-
ITimnaries as both ere impatient for a lead.
Corcoran was the first to let go and bis left
landed briskly on Joe's month. Joe's reponse
was a good one as be lounged his right heavily
on to Corcoran's ribs. They then went at it in
a sort of hammer and tongs way, the exchanges
being about equal when time was called.
A noT ROUND.
The second round was a hot one. Corcoran
acaln began the onslaught with bis left hand,
getting borne on Joe's nose. The Kid re
sponded, but not very effectively, and clinched.
After they broke away Corcoran again ponnded
Joe's nasal organ, bringing away a copious
stream of blood. First blood for Corcoran.
Tbe round ended after a few exchanges and
clincbe. The friends of the fichters were now
becoming demonstrative and the noise angered
the constables considerably. After a warning
to tbe crowd tho battle proceeded, and after
two more rounds the constables present stopped
the battle because of the noise.
After a suspension of hostilities for abont 10
minutes tbe fight was resumed and Corcoran
again banged his left hand terrifically on Joe's
noe. Joe was replying on Corcoran's nose and
ear, but the latter's W t hand was developing
Joe's nose to a tremendous size. In the sixth
round Corcoran, who apparently could only use
his left band, caught Joe's unfortunate nose,
again staggering him. Joe was game and he
stood his ground, replying with a hot one on
Corcoran's right ear. The clinching now was
frequent and it was evident that both men
were weakenine, though Corcoran seemed tbe
fresher of the two. In the eighth round Cor
coran bit Joe below tbe right eye, leaving a big
cut from which tbe blood flowed freely. Both
WEEE NOW COVERED WITH BLOOD.
Joe looked as if be bad just beon steeped In a
butcher's kit, bnt he was a game fellow.
Partisan feeling tias running high during the
tenth round, and it was plain that Joe was get
ting his second wind. Corcoran's blows, at
least his left band, the only one be used, was
getting weaker and weaker. At any rate when
he bit Joe, which be always did wben be tried,
bis blow did not have the effect that it had
early in the battle. Both men were now in
clined to clinch, and it was the most difficult
task to cet them separated.
Corcoran opened tbe eleventh round as usual
by banging Joe on bis very unfortunate
nose. After a few exchanges a row
started in Corcoran's corner. Bis second
was knocked down, and while down
someone broke a bottle over his bead. A scene
like pandemonium followed at once and almost
everybody was running for the donr. All this
time the two fighters were clinched, fibbing
away at each other, bnt when tbe constables
threatened to arrest somebody, there was a
general stampede. The principals were bustled
off and fixed up as soon as possible. The
referee, as was to be expected under the cir
cumstances, declared the fight a draw.
An hour or so after the fight there wero
several collisions between representative? of
tbe t o parties. The last of tbe crowd arrived
In tbe city about 7 o'clock yesterday morning.
Tbe Biff Captain bare That Chicago Will
Win tbe Pennanr.
Captain Adrian Anson and bis team of young
men arrived in the city yesterday and will do
battle with the local ball players to-day at
Recreation Park. The stalwart Captain has a
peculiar characteristic which some people
would call sanguinitv ana while others
would call it a bluff. However, it mav bo
dcfinltclystated last night that Chicago will win
the League pennant, llesaid:
"Of course it will take a long pull to do so,
but e can make a long pull. Cleveland is Just
now dropping, as every old baseball authority
expected her to drop. She has not struck her
Regarding the rumors that Mr. Spalding lias
taken charge of tbe management of tbe team,
Mr. Anson said: "All I can say to that is Mr.
Spalding is not here, and I am managing tho
team. I may also add tnat I expect to biro and
release players, roast them, fine them and order
them about for many years to come."
Abont the Dnnlnp Rnmor,
Speaking of the rumor abont the sale of D un
lap last evening. Jack Rowe said: "Well, I
don't know why there is any deslro to sell
Danlan. I cannot tell why a club wants to sell
its best players. This is generally done, how
ever, wben tbe club is about to disband. They
cannot improve on Dnniap, and I think be will
be playing here as soon as he is able." Rowe
went on to say that he is well pleased with
Pittsburg and tbe people in it, but be would
rather be in Buffalo.

Uo Hirer Become Trainer for Lorlllnrd's
Stable Next Year.
Jockrey McLaughlin is now at his home in
Brooklyn. N. Y., baving finished his engage
ment with the Chicago stable. In a recent con
versation with tbe writer, George Hankins,
proprietor of tbe Chicago stable, said that
Jimmy found it a physical impossibility to re
duce himself to the weight called for in bis
contract, even after the weight at which ho
was to ride, according to the first agreement,
had been voluntarily raised five pounds by Mr.
Hankins, bringing it np to 120 pounds. One of
the most skilled athletic trainers in the East
came on and was in constant attendance on
McLaughlin in his efforts to reduce his weight
and the continued attempts to reduce his
avoirdupois not only cost bim much pain and
sickness, but was a constant menace to his
health, and even his life.
Under the circumstances it was thought best
bv all interested for him to make no further
efforts to reduce below 125 pounds. Conse
quently a release from tbe contract was given
to Jimmy, and he was paid 35,000 by Mr. Han
kins for the ten winning mounts he has ridden
for Oie stable this year. Jimmy considered tbe
settlement a very liberal one. and tbey parted
the best of friends. Mr. Hankins has no "call"
on McLaughlin, but when bis horses run in the
East Jimmy will ride for him whenever he can
make the weichr. He weighed 137 pounds
wben he left Chicago for the East, and gains
weight incredibly fast. It is very doubtful If
he will be able to ride in any more races. Ho
will probably accept a position as trainer for
Pierre Lorillara next season. Horieman.
AN ODD CAREER.
Singular Events in tbe Life of tbe Racer
Bootjack has had a career nnequaied by any
other thoroughbred. He was one of the gamest
horses that ever won a race. He has defeated
all the fastest horses on the turf and won a.
'fortune for his owners. Bootjack was by
Bonnie Scotland, dam Sparrowgrass. He was
foaled in 1S78, was first raced In Milton Young's
colors, but later on was purchased by the
Dwyer Brothers, and won large sums of money
for them. He won 49 races before he was 6
years old. They were worth 133.965, and the
money won In bets was probably ten times that
amount. Some of the races that went to his
credit were the Cash Handicap,' Ohio Derby,
Belle Meade, Burnett House, Qreat American
Stallion and Mapolia stakes, aud among tho
horses that had to succumb to bis speed wero
Checkmate, General Monroe, "Ada Glenn,
Girofla and Churchill, all speedy ones. Wben
be broke down. Brown Dick, the colored
trainer, broke him to harness and used him to
draw a buggy. Last year he trained bim again,
and bo started in a three-quarter-mile dash
race at Gravesend. He came in last, but re
ceived much more applause than the winner.
Dick then sold him, aud now he is being used
as a saddle and driving horse by a Kentucky
gentleman wbo admired the old fellow in his
TO RECEIVE hULLIVAN.
lUnldoon nt Boston Arranging for the Chnm-
rsrrciAi. telegram to the DisrATcn.t
Bostox, July 2& Billy Muldoon has just
made a fleeting visit to Boston to see what
could be 'done about arranging a reception to
Sullivan, wbo, unless be again changes his
mind, will bo. in Boston next week. Billy has
i an eye on tho Boston Theater for Boston's
greeting to the champion, but there is little
prospect of obtaining the necessary license for
the show. If that scbeme falls through, some
big picnic grounds in the suburbs will be se
cured. Muldoon said:
"I have always thought a great deal of John,
and I thick I Droved it wben I took hold of
him to train for that fight. I would not bring
another pugilist living Into my own house and
turn tbe place into a gymnasium."
In regard to Referee Fitzpatnck's advice to
surrender himself to the Mississippi authori
ties, Muldoon said: "Well, if an indictment is
going to be secured I suppose it would be as
well lor us to face the music first as last.
However, we have not outlined a plan of action
in regard to this yet, but we probably will just
as soon as I get back to New York."
A CHINESE PRIZE FIGHT.
TvroCeleslInU Sign Articles to Battle With
rtPHCIAI. TXLEGRAM TO Till DISPATCH.!
Boston, July 2S. Two Chinamen In this city,
whoso names would never be recognized by
TJnglish speaking people, have signed articles
for a finish fight with two-ounco gloves. The
match grew out of a dispute that arose when an
opium joint was raided by tbe police, and by
tho advice ot friends they agreed to settle tbe
dispute according to tho "Melican" code.
Two professionals have agreed to train the
contestants for the first Celestial battle in
Boston. One sporting man of this city, when
questioned this evening by a reporter, re
marked: "I have made them an offer to run
the fight, but Celestials, like ourselves, want
all the receipts. Come to the scratch they will,
and I am well satisfied. I offered to give a
champion belt, worth at least 1250, to tho win
ner." Both men are over what may be called
White and Sbeebnn Matched.
D. R, Sheehan and Grant White met at this
office Saturday and signed articles to run a
100-yard race at Exposition Park on August 17

rCORRESPOXDENCE OP TBI DISPATCH.
Boston, July 28. Since the Bostons' return
from their recent Western trip they have been
putting up a very steady game of balk having'
bested all their Western rivals, with the ex
ception of Chicago. Anson's aggregation were
beaten badly in the initial game, bnt to the
surprise of all they walked away with the next
two games. Anson has as much gall as ever,
and when be left town he declared that Bos
ton was not in it; that the fight at tho finish
would be between New York and Chicago.
Well, there is no telling how the fight may
end; It's a long wayjto tb e finish and many a club
will be given a surprise partv between now and
tbe 10th of October. "New York will get there"
seems to be the cry from all sections of the
country, but some of the wise
prophets may get badly left. If Ew
ing should get Injured and it bas
happened many times in the past then look
out for a big drop on tbe part of the New York
team. In Bennett, Ganzcl and Kelly, the Bos
ton clnb bave a trio of catchers that no club in
tbe country can equal. Brown and Murphy, of
theNew orks. are rood catchers: but when
you "stack 'era up" side by side with tbe In
comparable Buck Etring, tbey appear like
mere pigmies. Ewlng is the greatest ball
player in this country to-day; a man who plays
from start to finish and never says die till the
last man is out. But Emng, like all other
players, is liable to meet with an accident
which might lay him up for several weeks. If
Buck is injured you will see tbe Bostons go
away to the front while tbe Giants will do the
"parachute act" In grand style.
F. C. Bancroft, accompanied by a thunder
storm, blew into the suburbs of this city tho
other day; then Bannie made his escape and we
next hear of him as a disgusted base ball man
ager who wants to throw up the sponge. Ban
croft gave up after the 67th round, and now
Jack Glasscock will try to pilot the Hoosiers to
victory. He will also invite some of the gang
to stop hitting the bottle. The Hoosiers. as
usual, put np a strong game against Boston,
and we would find no fault If tbey only made
me same desperate stana against new xorK.
Young Daley, who was recently purchased from
the Jersey City team, made bis first appearance
here against Indianapolis, and outside of giving
too many bases on balls he acquitted himself
quite creditably. His second appearance was
against Washington, on Monday last, and bis
four bases on balls, in the seventh inning, gave
tbe Senators tbe -game. Up to tbe fatal
seventh the boy phenomenal pitched a great
game, and had the Bostons done a Utile of their
old time stick work the boy would have been
an easy winner. He struck out 11 men, and
with proper encouragement be is going to be
tbe best south-paw twirler in the business.
Were it not for wildness he is about as good as
any of tbem to-day. Dalev Is 20 years of age,
hails from Pouglikeepsle, N. Y., which is close
to Wappinger Falls, the home of Dan Brouth
ers. Director Billings, who was so snre of the
pennant a few short months ago, is not quite
so sure that tbe pennant will float over tbe
Boston grounds next season. Ahl but how tbe
shekels are falling into Treasurer Billings'
lap how happy be feels as he grabs his capa
cious valise and carts it off loaded down with
filthy lucre! "We may get there yet," says
Billings; "I'll back the boys for. a while
longer." So you see that
"A man convinced against his will
Is of the same opinion still."
Up to date tbe attendance in this city bas
nearly reached 200,000, with many more im-
Sonant games ahead, especially the series with
l ew York, which will draw out an enormous
attendance. The Phillies, too. will draw big
crowds, and even the Senators, who are now
playing like four time winners, have not been
overlooked. Hewett's men drew well on Mon
day, tbe attendance approximating 3,500,bat on
Tuesday tbey bad tbe misfortune to run up
against a thunder shower.
John Morrill is still here, and will talk busi
ness with several parties as soon as bis band is
entirely healed. He has bad offers from Louis
ville and London, but it is not likely that he
will leave the League, as John is one of the
highcockalorums of the Brotherhood.
Poor Pittsburg! I am sorry the boys are not
doing better.but hope tbe hard luck which has
pursued them so long will soon take wings and
fly to some other community. As I told you,
Cleveland is now on the toboggan slide, and tbe
Pbjdies will soon jump into third position. An
son and his Windy City drew are pegging away
with fond hopes of getting into one of tbe lead
ing positions, but it is doubtful if the "Chicks"
get any better than number four.
Spalding's plan is not looked upon with
favor by the Boston players. There would be
too mucb experimenting with youngsters, be
sides it would crush minor leagues.

rCORRE3rOh-DEJCE OP THE DISPATCH.!
Washetgioit, July 28. It has been a re
markably quiet week at League headquarters,
and President Young has had very little to do
In the way of making assignments of players
or granting releases to those who are dissatis
fied with their present positions. The reaction
has set in, however, so far as regards the Sena
tors, and after an exceptionally brilliant ca
reer of a couple of weeks at home they have
taken a lasting grip on eighth place and are
holding to it with a desperation worthy of a bet
ter cause. After maintaining an average of
two-thirds against Chicago and their old time
terrifiers from Indianapolis, a clean record of
three straight from Pittsbnrg and but one
scalp for the babies, since their Northern tour
they have become terribly scared and seem
afraid to win. At least, such is the opinion
here among the cranks, and there are loud
cries for reform and recruits to strengthen tbe
badly wrecked "Senatorial aggravation." as a
colored enthusiast aptly termed them.
One of the most interested spectators during
the sojourn of the Senators at Capitol Park
was Secretary Rusk, of the Agricultural De
partment, whose long, white beard seemed to
be a talisman for tbe local team. He was
termed tbe mascotte because he has thus far
failed to see tbem beaten, and since their re
turn from the West the Secretary, by a singu
lar coincidence, missed every defeat by being
detained at his office until after the game.
Another thing bas been noticed in connection
with the Secretary's visits, and that Is, the ball
is always kept away from bis scat, which is in
tbe first tier at the right of tbe steps leading
into the grand stand. A chair has been set
apart for his use, aud no one is allowed to take
possession of it, no matter how great the de
mand may be for seats. The head of the
Agricultural Department is usually accom
panied by his private secretary, and both gen
tlemen keep score of the game, and occasion
ally indulge in the inevitable disputes as to tbe
merits of a base bit or error, and the Secretary
is generally right in bis conclusions.
All sorts of rumors are prevalent here at
present, the mot popular being the revival of
tbe story that Von der Ahe proposes to remove
bis nine from St. Louis to Washington at the
close of the present season. His reason for
making tbe change is said to be that people in
St, Louis will not accord bim tho Datronaee
which he thinks tis combination merits.
"There is no use going out to see the St. Louis
nine play," said a citizen of thatplace recently,
"because it is a foregone conclusion that they
will win. Once in a while they lose a game, but
that is only for appearance's sake and it Is usu
ally like a cent pie all the fruit is on one side.
Von der Ahe is not making money this year,
for the crowds have fallen off, and he is anxious
to come to Washington and take charge of a
League team. Bethinks that there will be
money in it for all concerned, and when tho
next annual meeting of tbe League is held
there is going to be some lively music and com
petition for a place by der boss manager.
Meanwhile Manager Hewett, of the Wash
ingtons, is laughing in his sleeve at the gulli
bility of mankind and the ease with which ho
disposed of LOCO season tickets at t25 eacb.
When there was a prospect that Ward and
other big gnus of tbe League would come hero
people could not get tbeir money down fast
enougb to secure their tickets, and before a
ball was pitched 1,000 anxious spectators were
clamoring for admission to the grounds. Sub
sequently tbee tickets, which were of the cou
pon variety, were retailed about tbe city at
tbe rate of 40 cents each, and it vtas not long
before tho supply was exhausted. Now that
coupon tickets can no longer be had every vis
itor to Capitol Park must put up half a dollar,
and the League magnates congratulate Young
Napoleon Hewett npon his foresight. Twenty,
five thousand dollars in cash is pretty good for
a starter, and this amonnt was deposited in
bank for emergencies before Mr. Hewett
opened tbe park gates last spring. He says he
Is playing on velvet now. A. M. Larger.
ABOUT ME GIANTS.
Gossip Abont Their Poor Playing Tbe
Pitchers Not nt Fault.
I SPECIAL CORr.ESPONDEXCX OP THX DISPATCn.1
NewYoek. July 28. The poor work of the
New York team while m Philadelphia, or
rather the reason of their poor showing, was
inconceivable to tbe baseball lovers of this
town. Among other excuses given was that
their pitcbers were bit more than usually bard.
Now that tbe team is home, there Is no need of
excuses. If the blind man who cells papers
near the postofflce comer was to go up to the
Folo grounds he would tell you at once that it
was not the pitchers' fault, bnt that the team
was playing bad balk The poor work
was cot confined to a few men, but
they have all caught the fever,
even Ewing has fallen off In his worki He
does not pretend to do the coaching that be did
earlier in the season. As for Mike Tiernan,
well If we did not know that he was not a
record player his work now would lead us to
think so. He is slow in going after the balls
and wben he does get under them he is apt to
let them get away from him.
However, there is an excuse-for him as he is
a very sick man. There being no one to take
his place he must go on playing just the same.
The reported deal for Ed. Andrews has not
been settled at this writing, but if the club
could get him he would no doubt prove
a tower of strength to the New Yorks' broken
A rumor bas gained ground in this city that
the careless work of the New Yorks Is due to
the tact that they bave an idea that they can
win tbe championship so easily that they need
not hurry themselves. Any one that Is at all
familiar with base ball knows that this is all
nonsense, and that if they expect to win tbe
championship, which they certainly do, they
will have to plav ball all the time.
Tbe New forks' new grand stand Is now
about tbe only thing to be finished before the
grounds can be called complete. The
stand at present Is only an out
line, but an Idea of its great strength
can be had from tbe fact that the upright
which will bold the upper gallery consists of
ten-inch square yellow pine logs weighing a ton
or more apiece, and it bas taken a day to put
each one in place. The trusses on about half
tbe stand are now up, and are similar in thick;
ness to tbe floor beams used in many of tho
five-story warehouses in this city. Just why
the stand must be so strong no one knows, but
'the building department says that's the wav it
must be built, and that settles it. The free
seats running along both sides of the grounds
in addition to tbe grand stand, when finished,
will seat 13,000 people. J. 1L M.
O'Maxlet: They each
Anson tbinks that Williamson will join tbe
club wben it returns to Chicago.
A Reader: He certainly cannot win the
bet, as he was acting fraudulently.
It is hardly to be expected that the officials
of tbe local clnb will act so foolishly as to sell
Anson says Chicago is out for good talent
every time and that the club's cash is always
forthcoming for good men.
The new Oakland Baseball Clnb claims the
game from the Duquesnes scheduled for July

bor Tbeir Disappearance tbe Evidence.
The residents ot Manchester are being;
treated to another alleged elopement.
The parties missed are Mrs. James E. Blx
ler, wife ot a railroader, and Michael
Glitsch, a moulder. They lived in the same
house, at Ko. 30 Adams street, and have
been missing since Friday morning. Mrs.
Bixler is a comely little woman, about
25 years of age, and the gentleman
is not yet 21. Her husband is a flagman orl
one of the through freights now at the Fort
Wayne yard and runs between the outer
depot, Allegheny, and Alliance, a distance
of 83 miles. Mr. Glitsch is a moulder and
has been working at the Bosedale Foundry,
owned by W. H. Irwin, on Fayette street.
He has been boarding with his sister, who
occupies one story of the house in Adams
The pair disappeared shortly after a
troublesome incident last Friday, and the
husband stated yesterday that he was snre

Mrs. Bixler left, besides her hnsbend, two
small children, the oldest a girl about 3
vears old. The other is a boy, in delicate
health. Last night the husband packed up
his things, at his home on Adams street,
and took his two children to the residence
of his sister-in-law in Allentown, South-

would never live with his wife again nnder
From people who lived in the same house
with them it was learned that Bixler had
almost idolized his wife. He showed her
marked respect and more attention than the
ordinary man. They have lived happily to
gether for the past fonr years, aud when not
out on his ran Bixler could always be
found at home with his wife and babies.
No cause can be assigned for the runaway,
if such it be, unless it was a sadden infatu
ation. It was stated yesterdav among the
people who knew him that Glitsch did not
have any money, and this being the case,
the husband did not expect them to go very
Mr. Bixler has an idea the couple left for
St Louis, where his wife has relatives. He
said he would not bother his head about the
couple, aud if she came back he would not
receive his wife. The matter has been re
ported to the police authorities, however.
A JEALOUS HUSBAND.
He Commits Suicide With Pari Green, and
Charges Hi Wife With Infidelity A
Moon Township Tragedy.
John G. Schreiner, a well-to-do farmer
from Moon township, committed suicide on
Saturday night by taking paris green, and
about 2 o'clock yesterday morning he was
found in his yard nearly dead. He was
carried into his house, and some milk given
him, because he said he had poisoned him
self, but it was too late and he died soon
Schreiner had been on very bad terras
with his wife for several months past. He
accused the woman of infidelity. About
two months ago he ill-treated her in -one of
his jealous fits and injured the woman very
badly. He was sued and sent to the work
house for 20 days.
On Saturday night, a few hours before his
death, he gave a letter to one of his neigh
bors to post it for him. This letter he sent
to the Pittsbubo Dispatch stating the
cause of his snicide. He alleges that his
wife does not love him any more and cares
for George W. Scott, a boarder in his house,
and he therelorc had made up his
mind to kill himself. A similar letter he
sent to his wile, onlv he stated in it that he
would drown h,imsclf.
The Coroner held an inquest on the body
yesterday morning. The jury returned a
verdict "ot suicide and censured Mrs.
Schreiner, the wife, and George W. Scott
with inhumanly treating the deceased.
Schreiner was 49 years of age.
C0MISG OUT CLEAR.
Knercher Thinks ne Can Stand the Soda
Water Fine An;hoiv.
Albert Kaercher, the druggist on Federal
street, Allegheny, did a rushing business
yesterday. To save paying a double,' triple
or sextuple fine he conducted the business
personally during the day without a clerk.
It was marvelous to see how dexterously he
handled the glasses, and dealt out iced soda
to the thirsty multitudes. Had his arms
been propelled by steam or clockwork he
could hardly have been more rapid. No one
had to wait long, and his day's trade closed
without any special features, beyond the
fact that he will come out clear, even if
fined as usual. The first two Sundays he
lost, the first one finding him not prepared,
and the second evening being wet.
Henry Finkelpearl, the druggist at 243
Fifth avenue, had a sign in his window and
a barrel in front of his store. The sign said
free ice water to everybody, and the barrel
contained it. Last Sunday's soda water
fine sufficed for Finkelpearl.
The ice water barrel in the entrance to
Smithrield Street Methodist Church was
kept filled all yesterday. The stream of
thirsty folk was very constant. Several
other churches followed the good example
of the Smithfield street pioneers and estab
lished water barrels in their portals.

AN XTEA SESSION OF CONGRESS
He Thinks Will Barely B Called, to Convene Abont
Congressman Iiandall talks with a Dis
patch reporter in Philadelphia about an
extra session of Congress, which he feels
sure will be held. Mr. Eandall thinks very
favorably of the proposed World's Exposi
tion in New York in 1892.
rsrXCTAI. TKLEOttAM TO HI DISrATCB.1
Philadelphia. July 28. A reporter
of The Dispatch had a brief interview
with Congressman Eandall this morning
on a question of local politics. Mr.
Randall is looking remarkably well. He
moves with ease. His eyes are
clear and he laughs heartily at a joke.
Since he has been living at Wellingford, a
suburb of Philadelphia, Mr. Randall says
he has been enjoying life immensely. He
now has Mrs. Randall, Mrs. Lancaster, his
oldest daughter. Miss Susie Eandall,
and young Sam with him. Toung
Sam, who was formerly a staunch
supporter of the Athletic club, has aban
doned that organization, and is now one of
the most enthusiastic cricketers of Phila
delphia. At the conclusion of the talk about local
matters, Mr. Eandall was asked what he
thought was the likelihood ot an extra ses
sion of Congress.
SUEE OF Alf EXTRA SESSION.
"I had been hopeful," was the answer,
"that there would be no extra session. I
feel snre now that there will be one. The
date I have not been informed of, but I
should smppose it would be about October
21. The elections are held on the first of
the month, and that would give ample time
for the filing in Washington of the certifi
cates of election by the new Congressmen."
Mr. Eandall declined to answer any ques
tions as to the political complexion of the
four new States, but when the question of
the proposed exhibition in New York in
1892, in commemoration of the discovery of
America by Columbus, was touched on, he
"Dana and his New York Sun," said Mr.
Eandall, "have done wonders toward creat
ing sentiment on this question. I see that
the Press was, the pioneer of the Philadel
phia papers tolindorse the holding of the
exposition in New York. That is
AS it should be.
Philadelphia is big enough and broad
enough to assist New York in the coming
exhibition. She realizes that New York is
not only the great financial, but the com
mercial center of the country. She knows
New York is even more than that that
she if practically the financial and
commercial center of the world. I am
sure that New York is the place for the
great international exhibition of 1892.
There should be some sort of celebration in
Washington, but New York should be the
site of such a show as it contemplated, and
which the advance of civilization requires.
"The Centennial Exhibition in Philadel
phia did more to advance mechanical art
than all other lnuuences that had been at
work during the time of the previous gen
eration. It marked an epoch. Since then
steady strides have been made which have
not only kept the United States in the front
xank of modern progress, but even ahead of
tflA fMM M1.V
OOVEKKMEKT AXX FOE IT.
"What do you think of the question of
giving the exhibition Government aid?"
"I am not in favor of that." answered
i Mr. Eandall, "unless private subscriptions
come in very handsomely. Understand that
I am not opposed to the exhibition. I am
warmly in favor of it, and I want
it to be held in New York. Yet
it depends on New York's action
whether it will be held there. Chicago has
been offering inducements to have it held in
that city, but Chicago is too far west. To
answer your question, I do not think
the Federal Government should give
a cent until we find out what
will be given outside of that.
The United States loaned 1,750,000 to the
Centennial at Philadelphia with the under
standing that it be paid back if the show
was a success. It was a success, and every
cent was paid back. My desire bow is to
have the exhibition in Kew York eclipse
every exhibition that has ever been held on
the face of the habitable globe." .
INCENDIARY AS EVER.
Sin. Lucy Parsons Addressee n Sleeting
Celebrating the Storming ot the Bas
tile Tho Chicago Anarchists
Oat la Force Sanguin
Chicago, July 28. The one hundredth
anniversary of the storming of the Bastile
was celebrated by the Socialistic and An
archistic societies of this city to-day. Al
though not so described upon the pro
gramme, it was practically a jubilee day for
Chicago Anarchists. Mrs. Lucy E. Par
sons, widow of the distinguished leader of
the Havmarket massacre, made an incendi
ary speech that was vociferously applauded
by hundreds ot listeners.
"The fall ot the Bastile," she said, "was
a victory lor lree government, a blow to
tyranny, but it did not destroy economic
slavery. We have a free government here,
they have a tice government in France, yet
are we slaves. There must be another revo
lution applause a revolution against the
bastiles, of labor. The people must rise and
hear me. They will rise. And they will
storm and capture those bastiles and they
will bear out the heads of those devils,
those capitalists, on the tops of pike staves.
"They presume to rule by the divmeright
of the rifle and the gatling gun and the
noose and the prison, but they have no
such divine right. You must seize those
rifles aud those gatling guns, destroy the
gallows and storm tbe prisons. You must
march, arm in arm, and shonlder to shoulder
against those 'bastiles' of labor. You must
not march in the street to be mowed down,
but you must get within the walls, and
victory, sweet victory, is yours,
"They say that we must not say such
things. Are the men at Washington who
say there is a storm coming to blame for the
damage done by that storm? If I say there is
another revolution coming am I to blame if
it does comer Are you cowards, men, to
stand still and tamely' submit to such ty
ranny? Do you not know there are 6,000
in Chicago to-day dependent on charity".
The crowd cheered itself hoarse when
Mrs. Parsons ended with these words, and
continued cheering until the Marseillaise
was commenced by the band.
Might Sandny Fires.
William Calhoun's unoccupied butcher
shop, on Wilson avenue, Allegheny, was
damaged by fire early yesterday morning
to the extent of $100. The alarm came
from box 242. The roof of the house No.

John Simpson, was slightlr damaged by

blocks, were pretty well shaken up, but es
caped total demolition. They are being
rapidly made habitable by the individual
owners, who are displaying there, as at
other portions ot the city, most creditable
energy and enterprise. Cellars are being
pumped out, and the few stores totally de
molished are being rebuilt.
An interesting sight was that near the
corner of Washington and Clinton streets.
On a just completed foundation sat an el
derly man talking with a pretty girl, his
uaugnter. a tnira party joined the group and
unfolded a parcel of thinoilsilk paper. The
plans for a new store came to light, and the
owner looked at them and laughed alond,
while his daughter hid her face in her hands
and cried. It was an illustration of the
power of emotions to act in widely varied
searching fob valuables.
A few feet further on a wall-paper store
used to exist. The first and second floors
had fallen into the cellar, and the stock was
a mass of pulpy paste. Here were a man
and his wife and two children, stirring
vigorously in the ruins and vainly striving
to fish something of value out of the foul
mess. On tbe opposite side of the street
was a handsome brick residence, from which
the whole front had been separated. Masons
were just closing in the yawning gap up
under the mansard roof.
From Clinton street several hundred feet
back to the hillside was a considerable ex
tent ot debris, apparently untouched. On
upper Main street the only new building in
two squares is the large double store being
erected by Foster & Zuin and Gels & Schry.
On Clinton street, which takes an oblique
angle toward Stony creek, is Swank Bros."
large new wooden store. The father was
drowned in his residence on the same site,
THE SONS ABE PLUCKT
and have already a good trade. Next door
is George Schrader's new grocery store.
Back of these buildings, and covering the
space between Clinton street and the Fourth
ward school, lor a long time the ghastly re
ceptacle of the dead, there is another ex
panse of ruined territory upon which no
work has been done.
At the corner of Main and Clinton streets
is a nest of booths. One of them purports
to turnish every creature comfort, including
"French oysters," whatever those may be.
Main street is now reached. The powerfal
bulwark of brick stores which lined each
side of this street and retained a huge mass
of wreckage, is being rehabilitated. It was
right in the squares bounded by Franklin
ana minton streets tnat
THE GREAT JAM OS TJEBBIS
was carried by the backwater. Photo
graphic views of this feature of the flood
have been sold all over the country, and
have adorned the pages of nearly every
illustrated paper in America. This enor
mous mountain of debris has been cleanly
removed by the contractors, but its traces
remain upon the buildings on tbe street
Not a ground floor window remains intact.
In fact, in all the stores which yet stand in
the business streets, plate-glass is conspicu
ous by its absence. It must have cost the
plate-glass insurance companies a pretty
penny to settle its Johnstown losses
The stores on Main street have been ener
getically reclaimed, and the former occu
pants have put in board fronts, and are
making heroic efforts to transact business
under difficulties. Cellars are being cleaned
out, and one instance of the character of the
accumulations beneath the first floors was
doubly instructive. A wagon was being
loaded with slime, which literally "sznelled
CAUSE ENOUGH TOB TTTHOID.
I managed to get near enough to ask
whither the refuse was being conveyed. It was
then discovered that all the refuse, garbage,
filth or decayed matter of every description
was being carried to the point between the
Conemaugh and Stony Creek, and incor
porated in the big dump. This fact will in

taken down to the dump, and the slime was
seen trickling down the slope of the em
bankment into the water. Every rain or
freshet will disintegrate enough poisonous
matter to have considerable effect upon the
waters of the Conemaugh. Not only is this
refuse very generally existent in Johnstown,
but every "fresh excavation seems to unearth

It is a marvel that everybody is not pros
trated with typhoid fever. Disinfectants,
however, are in general use. with the eflect
of somewhat mitigating the prevalent nui
sances. It has been a broad principle that
everything that conld burn should have the
torch applied, and all other debris should
be carried to the dump.
One of the melancholy reminiscences of
the flood is the music store of Hohmann
Brothers. Dismantled and ruined, inside
and out, the pluck ot the owners sticks out
forcibly. On a muddy 'window sash is
tacked up copies of Blaine's "Triumphal
March," also Cleveland's "Luck and Love"
march, with the features of the great politi
cal leaders sorely splashed with mud.
ADMIRABLE ENERGY DISPLAYED.
Along the two blocks of the chief business
street are the largest stores in Johnstown,
and the proprietors are displaying most ad
mirable energy in their efforts to get started
up once more. Huge canvas signs an
nouncing "openings" are displayed, right
and left, and people hurry around" with rest
less energy and determination written upon
At the corner of Franklin and Main
streets is evidently the business center of
the new Johnstown. The northern corner
is the site of the solid block oi admirably
constructed business houses put up all
around the four sides of tbe city park by
the commission. Every store is taken, and
nearly all are open with new stocks, and
prices are very reasonable in most instances.
The stores are two stories high, 32 feet deep,
16 feet wide, and the front of the third storv
is almost wholly of glass. No better move
could have been made than the erection of
these stores. The upper portion serves to
shelter the families oi the shopkeepers, who
gain access by means of stairs at the back.
The first story woodwork is painted green
in every instance.
LOOKS LIKE A NEW STREET.
Franklin street looks quite new when
viewed from Main street toward the Balti
more and Ohio depot. The two squares are
fairly well lined with a little better class of
temporary stores than are seen else where in
the city. Among the new buildings is the
Democrat office. The M. E. Church is being
placed iu applepie order, both inside and
out, by Boston Methodists, wbo are bearing
the whole expense ot fitting up tbe church
and adjacent parsonage, estimated at
Looking in the opposite direction front
Main street, private enterprise is active.
The building which contains the postoffice
downstairs and the Xri&une office upstairs
has had a gaping wound its side neatly
bricked up. several partly demolished
stores have been razed and the foundations
are ready for new edifices. Near the corner
of Vine street, running parallel with Main,
stands the Baptist Church, in which the
water just dampened the carpet iu the
auditorium, after submerging the lecture
room. Mr. Theodore A. Felsburg, repre
senting the .National Baptist, of Phila
delphia, assured the writer that
would be held in the church within two
weeks, it being the first church to recover
from the flood. The cost of placing the
church in order, as well as the lilting of a
mortgage, (9,500, has been borne by the
Nntional Baptist organization. The church
was used as sleeping quarters for workmen
by the State Commission for several weeks.
A member of the church made a facetious
reference to the kindly treatment ot the
Baptist house of worship by the waters
which wreaked so much injury elsewhere.
On the western corner of Vine and Mar
ket streets formerly stood the large Hoffman
residence, into which a locomotive crashed,
killing Instantly Mr. and Mrs. Hoffman
and seven children. A pile of bricks marks
the spot. Standing at the corner of Market
and Vine streets, and looking due north to
ward the Cambria Iron Company's offices, a
wide stretch ol ground covered'with debris
fills the distance.
A FRINGE 07 RUINED BUILDINGS
lines the north bank of Stony creek, extend
ing westward to the Cambria clubhouse, at
the foot of Main street. In all this expanse
of territory nothing shows the result of con
tractors' work but the cleared-off streets.
But there were a great many ruined build
ings which were torn down and burnt.
A numberof buildings were destroyed by hre
at the lower end of Vine street. Tn the
center of thirf large area two large fires were
burning, fed by debris. It should be re
membered in passing that at the corner of
Main and Franklin streets a Philadelphia
fire engine stands, with steam up, ready to
answer any alarm of fire.
Traversing VUe street to Main huge piles
of rubbish lie on either side. Three corners
of the intersection of Main and Vine streets
are graced "by commission store buildings,
the rear of one of which is devoted to
THE CITY CALABOOSE.
Another of tho stores contains Judge Cum
min's office, which, on scheduled pay days
of the commission, is besieged by a crowd
that blockades Main street. Near the cala
boose was noticed the blackened and half
consumed trunk of a large tree with a huge
chunk of sandstone imbedded in its roots,
showing the wonders of nature very effectu
ally. Upon some debris-covered ground
nearby was seen a primitive habitation oc
cupied by a number oi Italians. The ele
ments had deposited a huge section of tin
roof in this spot, and the Italians, with char
acteristic regard for the main chance, had
propped up one side of the tin roof, thus
fashioning a rude house. Under this shel
ter was grouped as motley a collection of
articles saved from the wreck as could be
MUCn THE WOBSE FOR AVEAB.
At the lower end of Main street stands a
group of brick dwellings, among which is
the handsome Cambria Club building, with
.a great fissure in its northern side. No re
pairs have been as yet attempted, and tbe
clump of buildings looks very much the
worse for wear. The Eed Cross commis
sary, a wide, long structure, is situated at
the foot of Locust street, upon Warner
street, the thoroughfare which passes the
western side of the Cambria Clubhouse.
On Locust street, which parallels Main
street, half a square, from Warner street, is
the new Eed Cross Hotel.
No buildings of any importance are to be
seen between Warner street, which ends in
the bridge across the Conemaugh at the
Pennsylvania depot, and the intersection of
the two rivers, a distance ot fully 300 yards.
It is a wide expanse of ruin, through which
the scores of wagons in use by private parties
and contractors thread their tortuous course
to and from tbe dump.
AN ENTIRE BOBOUGH GONE.
On the railroad side of the Conemaugh
was once a populous borough, Millvale by
name. The Conemaugh takes a sudden turn
from the depot, and flows in a southwesterly
direction to its junction with Stony creek,
leaving a strip of territory which, of vary
ing width, ends at Stone bridge. This sec
tion was swept as clean as a whistle by the
flood, obliterating every trace of Millvale
borough except the borough schoolhouse,
now the official morgue, which stands like
a grim sentinel, a "marker" for a once
bnsily populated community. Stacks of
coffins can be seen through the apertures
that once gave a view of prattling children
at their studies.
In the whole of Millvale borough are just
seven small new buildings, not counting tbe
meager shanties which do dutv as restau
rants just below the depot. The railroad
CLOSED UP THE GBEAT GAP
made by the angry flood in the embankment
leading to the stone bridge. The masonry
approach that was carried away has also
been replaced. The bridge over which
thousands of tons of debris was hurled, and
which acted as a backwater, causing terrible
destruction along the banks of Stony creek,
is now in cood order. No pen has ever
pictured the seething, flood which dashed
over the bridge, sweeping thousands to
death, and it were- idle to attempt at this
day a description of that terrible scene.
A hasty glance toward the end of the
Cambria Iron Works shows that the space
in which, steel billets were tossed around
like so many egg-shells is in much the same
condition as dnring the first days succeed
ing the flood. Some of the tracks have
been uncovered, however, and piles of
FRESHLY MELTED IRON AND STEEL
contrast strangely with rusty iron which
peeps from the uneven surface of the
All is activity at the Cambria Works,
and the smoke from the huge stacks drifts
luily across the sky, like a bow of promise
tofthe ruined wageworker. .
On the northern side of the Pennsylvania
tracks all looks promising and presages
brighter days for industrial Johnstown. On
the southern side all is discouragement, and
predicates weary days of gigantic exertion
before domestic Johnstown becomes itself
again. " '
If two months and hundreds of thousands
of dollars have barely made a superficial
showing in the ruined city, how much time
and money must be given to thoroughly
rehabilitate the most unfortunate city in
modern history? It must, indeed, be a
noble, a wonderful people who can look this
gigantic problem squarely in the face and
take up once more the burdens of life in the
midst of discouragements, finding no parallel
upon the face of the civilized earth.
