A VERY QUEER DEAL
McQuaiol Calls the Game and
Creates a Surprise.
W BAIBI AKD DRY GROUNDS
The Some- Team Was in the Lead and
flOOSIERS WIN A GREAT CONTEST.
"President Ximick Talks About the Case
.of Pitcher Conway.
GENEEALiCBASEBALL NEWS OF THE DAI
Umpire tMcQuaid called the game between
the Pittsburg and Chicago clubs vesterday
at the end of the second inning and created
a big surprise by doing so. There was no
rain falling and the diamond was qnite dry.
The score -was 4 to 2 in favor of the home
team. Indianapolis won a great game irom
Cleveland, by 1 to 0. Rain stopped the
other games. Pitcher Conway has not re
ported for duty yet and President Nimick
says he is receiving pay from the clnb.
Of the 700 or 800 people who went over to
Recreation Park yesterday to see the last
game of the series between Chicago and the
local team fnlly 75 per cent would, doubt
less, leave the grounds convinced that hard
luck and the umpire were against the home
players. The game was called at the end
of the second inning, when the score stood 4
to 2 in favor of the heme players.
"When the game was called it is safe to
say that never was a crowd' more disap
pointed than were the crowd in the grounds.
There wasn't a droD of rain falling and
very little, indeed, had fallen. The sur
prise was so great that everybody
-was asking the question: "What's
the matter!" When tbe gamo started the
weather was as threatening as it could well be;
in fact, rain was falling slightly and thunder
conld be heard in the distance. The rain was
very slight, however, but at the end of the
second inning it began to fall a little brisker,
bat not heavy enough to anything more than
dampen the diamond.
M'QUAID SUBPKISED THEM.
McQuaid called for the customary half hour
suspension of play and when the half hour had
expired he called the game, although the at
mosphere -was clearer and drier than when tbe
game started. It is needless to say that this
strance decision caused some very warm
Captain Dnnlap said: "I argued with Mc
Quaid. trying to convince him that the game
bhould be continued. He wouldn't be con
vinced, however, and be was master of tbe
situation." President Nimlck and Secretary
Scandreit were both considerably amazed and
surprised at McQuaid's resolve, and Mr.
2?imlck said: "The rule which gives the um
pire absolute authority in a case such as this is
a. foolish one. Probably there is nobody on
the ground more interested financially in the
.game than I am. and yet I cannot say a word in
"tbe matter. We have our patrons to look after
and protect. I am aware that scarcely a lady
or gentleman on me grounus mints otner man
that tbe game should have been played, and
they'll feel angry because it has been called.
While there Is ample reason for such com
plaints, we, the officials of tbe club, have not a ,
thing to do with it The rule is a bad one. be .
cause there certainly should be a little mor e
power given to the home clnb."
Whether or not the home team would hai re
won the game had it been finished is a matt er
of conjecture, but as far as the game went t he
home players bad decidedly the best of it. (
WERE AFTER GUJIBEKT'S SCALP.
It looked as if tbe local team was determi ned
toflndGumbert's measure, while Galvin was
m something like his old time form. The - risit
ors were also fielding loosely, except Tommy
Burns, who made two phenomenal stoj )3 of
grounders to third base. Beside being hit , bard
in the two innings, G umber t was excee iingly
wild. In the first inning be gave Han' n his
base on balls, and Hanlnu stole second . Car

tempt to catch him. The error allow ed Miller
In the second Inning Dnnlap reach ed first on
a fumble by Pfeffer and stole secon C Galvin

Burns stopped it so well that Du jilap didn't
leave second base. Carroll foule 1 out and
Bcckley knocked out a splendid si ngle to mid
dle, sending Dunlap home. Miller made a hit
to Burns, which was admirably tie! jded, and the
bases were filled. Rowe was ret ired at first,
lea ving the three men on bases.
For tbe visitors Ryan got his base on balls
and Van Ualtren hit a single to r ight. Duffy's
sacrifice sent Ryan home and Anson's single
scored Van Haltren.

THE CARDINAL INVITED
To Witness St. Phllomenn's Celebration
A Mnanlflcent Improvement About .Fin
ished Historical Matters Developed.
St. Philomena's E. C. Church, which has
been ior some time the subject of exterior
and interior repairs, will be formally re
opened on the first Sunday of October by a
grand jubilee service commemorating the
fiftieth anniversary of the existence ot the
parish. The interior'hasbeenjrepaintedand
varnished, and the woodwork in the chancel
and back of the altar has been handsomely
relieved withsgilU The immense height of
the apex of the roof 60 feet has necessi
tated the use of an elaborate system of scaf
folding, now being removed. The prevail
ing tint inside is almost white, with
splashes of sea-green, and the glitter of the
varnish will add to the general effect, inas
much as a complete system of incandescent
lights is to be pnt in. This is said to be the
first Soman Catholic chnrch in the two
cities to permanently adopt electricity as a
raeans'of illumination. The altar lights will
continue to be by candles and tapers, al
though some of the side lights will be in
candescent. Father Werner stated that
the interior repairs wonld cost not far from
The scaffolding on the exterior of the
church was erected to admit of what is
called "pointing," a technical term signify
ing the replacing of old and decayed plaster
or brick, ranch of which on the lront of the
steeple needed repair. There will not be
any attempt made to paint the exterior of
the church. Father Werner alluded to the
use of coal by Pennsylvania engines in and
around Union depot verv indignantly, and
said that the locality of the chnrch is just as
badly affected by smoke as in the old davs
when coal was universally burned. Ho
stated that he intended to protest to the city
authorities, and demand that existing ordin
ances be enforced, because locomotives conld
use coke or charcoal very easily within city
limits. The church will be open for the
celebration of the feast of St. Alphonsns
Eev. Fatter Bernard Beck, of St. Philo
rhena's clergy, has in press a history of St'
Philomena's parish. The volume will be
out in a few days, and it contains much
that is of interest bearing upon the early
ecclesiastical days of Pittsburg. SL Philo
mena's parish was the first location of the
Bedemptorist Fathers, who came to
America in 1832, and founded the Pittsburg
church on April 13, 1839, it being the first
German Catholic Church in America. The
parish was the mother church of Western
Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia and en
listed the earthly labors of German priests
of great eminence and piety. The old
"factory chnrch" which was used as a
place of worship for many years being
superseded by the present structure 14years
since, will be the subject of quite extended
notice. It contained the first bell used in
Western Pennsylvania in public worship.
The ancient bell is carefully preserved by
the church authorities and will be brought
out for the jubilee service. It will then be
taken to the chapel of the SL Philomena
Bev. Father Werner has invited a num
ber of Pennsylvania clergy and various
bishops of the churches to be present, and it
is possible that His Eminence, Cardinal
Gibbons, will be prevailed upon to attend
the. elaborate services now in course of
A BULLET IN HIS BRAIN
Does Not Seem to Have Much Effect Upon
an Attempted Suicide.
Chicago, July 31. The case of Herman
Carman, the wealthy real estate man who
made an unsuccessful attempt to commit
suicide yesterday afternoon, is regarded by
the doctors as one of the most remarkable of
the kind on record. Notwithstanding the
fact that the second bullet fired by the man
passed upward through the roof of the
mouth and penetrated the brain, he is con
scious and recognizes not only the members
of the family, but also the doctors and
others whom he has seen.
Drs. C. H. Graves and Webster probed for
both of the balls this morning, and found
the first bullet, fired Sunday, lodged in the
thick bone about the ear; the other, and the
one likely to prove faUl, was found to be
in the top of the head near the skull. The
effect of this bullet has been to paralyze the
right side of the body, and irom this fact
the doctors know exactly the locality of the
ball. Dr. Graves says tnere is but one
hope of a complete recovery, and that lies
in removing a part of the skull, and taking
out the bullet from the brain.
The case is considered all the more re
markable from the fact that during the two
days Mr. Carman carried the first bullet in
his bead he partook heavily of food, and
talked with everyone in a way not to arouse
the slightest suspicious of the family.
A CATHOLIC CELEBRATION.
The Ceutenninl Anniversary of the Hierarchy

Chicago, July 31. A committee, con

Chairman, and Henry J. Spaunnorst, of St.
Louis, and Daniel H. Budd, of Cincinnati,
to-day issued a call for a general congress of
the Catholic laity of the United States to be
held in the city of Baltimore November 11
and 12, 1889, to celebrate the centennial an
niversary of the establishment of the Cath
olic hierarchy of the United States.
They state that the general discussion of
matters will be invited and that the titles
of several papers will be duly announced
beforehand. The congress is intended to
be free and open to all Catholics. Coinci

Centennial and the meeting of tbe Catholic
Congress will occur the formal opening of

WINNERS AT SARATOGA AND ST. PAUL
Tho American Cricketers Win a Great Match From
The grand circnit meeting at Cleveland
was continued yesterday and was a great
success. Brown Hal won the free-for-all
pace and broke tbe stallion record, The
Philadelphia cricketers defeated the
'Southampton gentlemen. There was good
racing at Saratoga and SL PauL
jsrrciAi. iuxobaii to tth sisrATCB.t
Cleveland, July 31. Though Thurs
day was the day when records were sup
posed to be smashed by the flyers at the
driving park, Wednesday has come in first
and a new record for stallions was made by
the Tennessee pacer, Brown Hal, who made
the third heat in the free-for-all contest for
side-wheelers in 2:12J. This is half a sec
ond faster than the mile paced by the same
horse at Lexington in 1887. Though Brown
Hal finally won the race Wednesday
through the skillful driving of Geers, the
form shown by Boy Wilkes cannot be over
looked, for he fought every heat, pacing the
second In 2.13, which for a few minutes made
him eqnal with the champion. It was tbe first
time In a race that a best on record was tied by
one horse and then a new mark made by the
original champion, so that the pacing contest
of to-day will be a memorable ene In turf
history. Brown Hal went lame after the third
heat, but there was so much money on him
that he was not drawn. Up to the sixth heat
tbe issue was uncertain, but the horse showed
wonderful courage at a critical time and grad
ually drew up on Roy Wilkes, who broke near
the wire, and Hal nad tho lead by an eyo lash.
The only trotting contest was between the
227 flyers, and once again the Utica stallion,
Sprague Gold Dust, Has defeated, this timo by
tbe young mare Annie H. who won by outlast
ing her opponents. Four horses lowered their
records In this contest, Jim Fuller beating 220
for the first time, while Sprague Gold Dust and
Annie H made miles in exactly 22a The New
York mare. Miss Alice, showed good form for
an inexperienced trotter.even after getting her
sulky smashed by Tipple in the fourth heat.
Marie Jansen, the fast Kentucky 4-year-old,
was drawn in the latter part of the race, as
Doblodid not wish to overtax her when she
could not win.
The third event, for 220 trotters, was reached
so late that it was postponed till to-morrow.

JOHN MAKING MERRY.
Bnlllvan and Hie Bncher Go the Rounds ol
New York, July SL Champion John L.
Sullivan, accompanied by bis backer, Charlie
Johnson, made the rounds of tbe various sport
lug places in this city this afternoon, and also
paid a visit to tbe various city and county de
partments. The champion was very liberal
with his money, and presented several small
boys with various dimes and quarters which be
found about bis clotbss. He seemed very
.playful, and several times be jokingly punched
Johnson iu the face with a fist that looked like
As Johnson was stoopingdown to tie bis shoe
Sullivan dropped a match with which he had
lust lighted a cigar down the neek of his
backer. Charlie jumped about three feet in
the air and then he expressed his opinion of
the performance In very measured terms.
During tbe excitement consequent npon tbe
champion's presence, and whileeverybody was
gathered around him, several small boys took
advantage of tbe opportunity to make a raid
on tbe free lunch table, and when they got
throngh with it it looked like a desert. At
every place tbe champion stopped be bad sev
eral drinks, but they bad no more effect upon
him than water.
He smoked cigars one after another, and the
rapidity with which they vanished astonished
the spectators. Be is again growing a mus
tache, and is somewhat inclined to fatness.
When asked bis opinion concerning his trainer,
Billy Muldoon, he replied: "I consider Muldoon
to be a gentleman."
During tbe afternoon Sullivan was as playful
as a kitten, and although be drank enough to
make two ordlnarv men paralyzed drunk, it
had no effect upon him whatever.
The Champion Puzzled Regnrdlne Facing
the Mississippi Authorities.
New York, July 3L There have been sev
eral conferences on the subject of returning to
RIchburg between Sullivan, Johnson, Wakely,
Muldoon, Barnltt and Dan Murphy, but up to
a late hour last night no definite decision bad
Rumors that Governor Lowry had sent a
detective to New York to obtain requisition
papers and warrants were current yesterday.
No doubt there are plenty of officers in Missis
sippi who would be glad to make an effort to
obtain the J1.5U0 reward offered by the State,
and the reports are probably not without
The penalty for prize fighting in Mississippi
is a fine of not more than 1,000 and not less
than 500, or Imprisonment in a county jail not
less than 12 months, or both. All alders and
abettors are punisbable by a fine of not less
than S10O or imprisonment for elx months, or
both. If Sullivan should attempt to go on tbe
road with a company he would be in continual
danger of arrest, and some of his firmest
friends are of the opinion that he will decide
to "face the music" and be freo from restraint.
There is an Impression that the authorities in
Marion county would be lenient with tbe cham
pion, because he had nothing to do with tbe
selection of Mississippi as a battle ground,

THE PARSON EXPLAINS.
He State How False Report Have Been
Given About Jackson.
Chicago, July 3L "Parson" Davies arrived
from Buffalo last night, and was much sur
prised at some of the reports he read concern
ing the little spat between Jackson and Lees.
Tho trouble came about by Lees attempting to
leave the combination, and, addressing Jackson
roughly, demanded bis salary, to which Jackson
replied: "Since you mean to leave me in the
lurch so as to be unable to secure any one In
your place, I will just make you wait until 1 get
ready to pay you."
Lees then called Jackson a black .
Jackson then struck him. ,A scuffle ensued,
but tbe men were quickly seDarated, and Lees
ordered to leave the hotel. Tbe combination is
doing well, and will leave for England in abont
three weeks. As regards Jackson's set-to with
Lynch, the Parson says Lynch grabbed Jack
son's legs to avoid the terrible punishment be
was receiving and win onafouL Tbe police in

A Woman Who Remarried a Divorced IIui-
bandnnd Then Poisoned Htm In Order
to Secure a New Helpmate
A Case That Fairly
Beats the Record.
Aledo, III., July 31. Sirs. Isaac Artz
was arrested here by Sheriff Warwick last
night charged with poisoning a former hus
band. The woman's history is a remark
able one, and is causing a sensation as it is
being brought to light. She was married
more than 20 years ago to David Bamsey, a
farmer of this county. After some time, dur
ing which two children were born, they
were divorced, Mr. Bamsey subsequently
moving to New York. Mrs. Bamsey soon
married a man by the name of Coleman,
livfng with him a number of years. Mr.
Coleman died suddenly about three years
ago. and many neighbors suspected that his
wile had poisoned him. She remained in
this county till last May, when Isaac Artx,
well known in this vicinity as "The
Prophet," became infatuated wiin her. Mrs.
Coleman was very willing to marry Artz,
but he told her the Lord would not allow
him to marry her while her divorced hus
About this time Mrs. Coleman opened np
a correspondence with her first husband,
Mr. Bamsey, who resided in Elmira.'N. Y.,
which resulted in her going back to JBlmira.
About the 1st of May she and Mr. Bamsey
were re-married. The second day after the
wedding Mr. Bamsey was taken violently
ill and died, declaring that she had poisoned
him. Mrs. Bamsey, soon as the funeral
was over, came back to Aledo, and in 21
days after Bamsey's death, married Artz,
who now had no objections. Mr. Bamsey's
body was taken up and arsenic was found
in his stomach. As soon as this was known
the Coroner of Elmira telegraphed the fact
here and Mrs. Artz was arrested.- A
requisition will be asked for. The authori
ties expect to have Coleman's body ex
humed and examined as soon as possible.
ANOTHER BOM OF SIGEL
Arrested at St. Louis on n Chnrce of Steal
lag Bank Checks.
tSFECIAL TXLXOHAX TO TILE DISPATCH!.
St. Louis, Jnly 31. A young man giv
ing the name of William Blinkner, who
was arrested a few days ago on the charge
of stealing two certified checks for $700 on
the German Savings Bank, told the prose
cuting attorney to-day that he was the son
of General Franz Sigfil, of New York. He
says: "I am his second son. I left home
abont three weeks ago and came West.- My
father was always complaining of his chil
dren on account of the tronble they get in
and I thought I might as well leave homo
and take my phances in the West."
"What trouble do you rei"er to?"
"My elder brother was employed in the
Pension Office there, and he is charged with
swindling the Government by passing a
fraudulent pension claim. He was indicted
and is now out on bail, but I don't think
they will ever get him into Sing Sing."
"Have von ever been in jail before?"
"No. I have had a couple of pretty bad
scrapes, but I never was arrested before. I
went to college in Utica, N. Y., and was
taking the law course there. Six months
before I was to graduate I got into trouble
and had to leave. I went to France and
pot into another scrape of the same kind
there. I had to leave France and I went
home. On acconnt of that and my brother's
trouble, my father was always finding fault
and I left"
The authorities have written to General
COH1USSI05EE TANNER CLEARED.
An Investigating Committee Fall to Find
Auy Fraudulent Reratlnc.
Washington, Jnly 31. The committee
appointed to investigate alleged fraudulent
rerating of pensions, finished the first part
of its work to-day. On examination there
were fonnd to have been during the month
of May, under Commissioner Tanner's ad
ministration, about 1,800 reissues. These
reissues cover all clauses known to the
pension laws and include all cases of re
rating, which it is said average from 3 to
6 per cent of the whole number of reissues.
Therefore the reratiugs found in these two
months will probablv aggregate less than
200. It is stated further that the rera tings
probably do not average more than from 2
to $1 per month, but the arrers in many
cases are carried back to the date of the
original application, some of them as far as
The investigation, so far as it has gone, is'
believed to have convinced the committee
that there has been a g;adnalincrease in the
number of pensions reratoi since late in the
summer or early fall of last year. It is
confidently asserted that the committee have
discovered nothing whatever of a sensational
character, either in the number of reratiugs
or the amount of money involved.

THE TYPHOID EPIDEMIC.
Interesting Statistics Bearing on the Local
Prospect Allegheny Somewhat Alarm
ed Park Well Denoanced.
The Bureau of Health report for the
mouth of July, 107 cases of typhoid fever,
with only 18 deaths resulting from the dis
ease in the Pittsburg district. No great
alarm need, therefore, be felt by the people
as to the widespread report that an epidemic
was going to take place.
In the year 1880 there were 211 deaths out
of 432 cases reported to the Bureau. The
first quarter of the year there were 48deaths
and 87 tbe second. In the upper Southside
wards the disease was most prevalent, and
it is believed to have been due to the extensive
use of well water. In the year 1882 there
were 1,782 cases reported, which resulted in
268 deaths. Children and elderly people
were more susceptible to it in that year than
those in middle lite. In 1883 there were
1,142 typhoid fever 'cases, with 188 deaths,
only 13.0 per cent. Eighteen hundred and
eighty-four reported s less number of cases,
but a larger percentage of deaths. Five
hundred and twenty-five cases were returned
to the bureau, with 130 deaths, a percentage
of 24.8. This unusually high death rate is
explainable by the supposition that the cases
were not fully reported. In 1883 992 cases
were reported, and 154 deaths occurred, a
percentage of 15.4. The year 1886 saw 1,045
typhoid lever cases, and 140 deaths, with a
death rate of 13.4. In 1887 the largest num
ber of cases was reported, with the lowest
death percentage between the years 1880 and
1887; there were 2,226 cases, out of which
269 died, a mortality per cent of 12.1.
When taken in ' conjunction with this
year's report these figures ought to dispel
the anxiety that any unusual epidemic of
typhoid fever is to be feared. The Alle
gheny authorities have not been able to
stamp ont the typhoid fever epidemic.
Seven deaths occurred yesterday. Dr.
Faulkner thinks that the disease is due en
tirely to impure water. He also opines that
some of the wells in the park will cause
widespread sickness. He instances a well
snnk in Sherman avenue park right in the
center of au abandoned graveyard, and says
that the depth oMOO feet is not sufficient.
Dr. Faulkner goes on to say, that when
the bodies were removed each grave had
water in it. The remains of Mr. Siedle had
become so hardened that it resembled a
mummy. Another well near the band
stand is within 100 feet of the old Western
Penitentiary, where the bodies of the pris
oners were buried.
Warden Wright said that when the bodies
were exhnmed to be reinterred in Union
dale Cemetery, only a part of them were
taken out. An Allegheny Councilman said
that the very idea of drinking the water
from park wells makes him sick.
There are 30 cases of typhoid fever at the
Allegheny Hospital. Health Officer Brad
ley thinks the typhoid fever in Allegheny
can be traced to tbe Johnstown flood. He
stated that the agitation about the river
water had cansed the residents to resort to
the wells for drinking water.
The Pittsburg health officer said there
was no fear of an epidemic in Pittsburg,
but that there were a number of cases.
There are 20 cases of typhoid fever in the
West Penn Hospital at present. The total
number of patients in the hospital is 221,
about 40 more than can be well accommo
dated. OFFICER EOCDE SPBINTED.
A Lively Foot Race la Which Bad Mr.
Walsh and a Patrolman Figured.
The notorious Jack Walsh, of the Twelfth
ward, was last night arrested by Officer
John Boche, on Penn avenue, just below
Sixteenth street. Walsh has been in the
lockup times without number, and his of
fenses are as varied as they are many. But
a few weeks since he was arrested for brutal
rowdyism, and was let off on a solemn
promise never to offend again. It seems
that for the past few days he has been mak
ing life unbearable at his home on Penn
avenue, between Twenty-ninth and Thir
tieth streets. Yesterday his mother swore
out an information against him,
and a warrant was issued for
his arrest Office Boche saw him sneaking
down Sixteenth street and gave chase.
Walsh ran ut Penn avenue, doubled, passed
the officer and fled up Sixteenth street again.
But OffieerBoche is quite as good a runner
as Walsh wBich is saying a great deal
and he forced him to double again and turn
down Penn avenue. Here Constable P.
Connelly chanced along and tripped Walsh
up with his umbrella. In a few seconds the
doughty desperado w.is handcuffed, and the
patrol wagon trotted him off to the Twelfth
ward station. He made several attempts to
get at his knife during the capture, but
tailed to reach it.

A FOUNTAIN BDT NO WATER.
The Fifteenth Wnrd Committee Hustling to
Get Tbelr Fountain.
The Fountain Committee of the Fifteenth
ward have the fountain and accessories but
no water. The plans which were drawn by
Master Mechanic Jones, under the instruc
tion of Major McKce, of the Arsenal, are for
a pipe line about $300 more costly than was
contemplated, and the delay in furnishing
the water arises from the fact that tbe cir
cumlocution of the War Department must
be gone through before a change can be
It is alleged that Mr. Jones' object in
drawing the plan as he did was to give the
citizens of the Seventeenth ward, ot which,
he is a resident, an opportunity of forming
a connection for a fountain of their own.
To this objection is taken by tbe Fifteenth
ward people. The Hon. John Dalzell is to
be seen to-day on the matter, and a public
meeting is to be held on Monday for action
in the affair.
Tbey Deny the Heport.
The authorities at the West Penn Hos
pital deny that they have any case of small
pox in the hospital, as reported yesterday.

him untold misery. In fact, bis disease grew
from bad to worse, until be was unable to wait
