Startling Incidents on the Af
flicted Manager's Journey.
Dr. Foster's Opinion of the Condition
of His Patient.
Mr. Samuel Keys Tells of Dal Pointer, the
Pacing Wonder.
The last journey of Manager Phillips
from "Pittsburg to Philadelphia was an
eventful one. A bitter and unreasonable
newspaper criticism hastened mental de
rangement on the train. Dr. Foster clearly
explains the manager's condition. The vet

Philadelphia. August 4. The afflic
tion which has come to the door of poor
Horace Phillips, Manager of the Allegheny
Baseball Club, although a. complete sur
prise to the general public, by no means
shocked your correspondent, who accom
panied him from Pittsburg to Philadelphia
on last Sunday night. When he entered
the Baltimore and Ohio depot at Pittsburg
he went to the ticket office and demanded a
lower berth in the sleeper. He could not
get it and refused an upper, but entered the
Pullman car without a ticket He was
emaciated and ghastly pale, and his con
dition, as well as bis position, soon secured for
him the berth he desired. There was not a
passenger aboard in fact who would have re
fused to surrender him his lower berth in ex
change for an upper.
He was up before 6 o'clock the next morn
ing, looking as pale as ever. From the time he
got up until he reached Washington he gave
his undivided attention to a pretty canary bird
which he said he was taking to his wife in Con
necticut, whom he intended to join by Monday
night, making no stop off en route. When he
reached 'Washington be purchased one of the
leading sporting papers of the East, which
contained one of a
and condemnations of the -Allegheny Baseball
Club and its management. The moment be
saw it he called yonr correspondent to his seat
in the palace car, which contained a number
of ladies, and read the article aloud, becoming
more and more excited and incensed as he
n eared the end. He spared no pains in con
signing the attacking editor to a hotter place
than Pittsburg, and immediately proceeded to
write a lengthy and bitter denunciation of the
editor, a history of the clnb's misfortunes, the
cause of its defeats and an inside history of its
management, the conre of certain stockhold
ers, making very spicy reading.
President Nimick was bis standby, he wrote,
and the salvation of the club was One to the
conservatism of Nimick and the untinng ef
forts of the abnsed manager, both of whom
have had a constant battle with some of the
shareholders and directors to keep the club
running as it should be. Minnte details of
several deals, heretofore unknown to the pub
lic, were given without stint, and statements
which would startle baseball circles through
out the country made and dilated upon in the
15 pages of closely-written manuscript which
he had finished when the train reached Phila
delphia. Here he left the train with neither baggage
or bird, promising faithfully to send the article
to The DisrATCH, for -.Thorn he was writing
it, by Tnesday night, saying he could not mail
or telegraph it before then, as he was going
right through on that train to NewYerk, and
thence to Connecticut. While he stood in the
depot the train pulled out. Horace was not on
board. His baggage was. The artscle which
he bad been writing and which he carried about
the depot, seemed to weigh heavily upon his
mind, and he would talk of nothing else.
Though as pale as a ghost, the look of de
termination written in his deeply sunken eyes
told the observer that it would not be well for
the Sportsman's editorial v. titer to run across
the path of the "Hustler" at that moment. He
claimed to be, undeserved, the worst abused
manager in the country, and though somewhat
incensed and downhearted, swore he would
still continue to be the club's manager, and
vt ould ultimately give the lie to hiscuiumnia
tors, not only by the work of his pen, but in his
management of the club, which he was bound
to place at the head of the list before he de
serted it by option or bv request.
Horace bad been suffering for some weeks.
He endeavored to conceal his real condition
from everybody and succeeded welL His brain
was troubled, and the mental excitement
caused by the editorial in question completed
the wreck, for but a few moments before it
came to his notice be said positively he was
Coins; through to Nantucket, Conn., and ac'
cnrdtnglv bad bis bagfrage checked for New
York at Washington. V nen be reached Phila
delphia he left the train withont his baggage,
and never got any further. He forgot every
thing but the article, even his destination, and
roamed around Philadelphia from Sunday
morning until Thursday night, when the climax
was reached and his reason had deserted him
entirely. Outside of the writer these facts are
unknown, even to his physicians, and the
last article Horace wrote, which was for The
PrrrsBUBO Dispatch, has probably been lost
and will never appear in print.
He States Plainly the Condition Manager
Phillip, la in The Afflicted Man May
Becover. bat Will Not Again be
a Baseball Manager He
Longs to Come to
Pittsburg Agnln.
Dr. Foster, the Pittsburg physician who
has been attending Manager Phillips, re
turned from Philadelphia yesterday morn
ing. The writer visited tbeDoctor specially
to learn definitely and clearly what the
condition of the afflicted manager really is.
The physician was extremely frank and
very glad to have an opportunity to make a
public statement on the case because, he
said, that so many misleading and incorrect
stories had been circulated about the case.
"I am perfectly willing," said Dr. Poster,
"to state exactly the condition Mr. Phillips
is now in and what are the chances of his
his recovery as far as I am able to judge.
In the first place, none of us can tell whether
or not his case is amenable to treatment. If
during the next week or ten days his affliction
does not develop his case will be a very hopeful
one. On the other hand, however, if It does
progress and increase the indications will be
exceedingly unfavorable. At present there is
one very favorable sign and that is the absence
of paralysis. However, we cannot tell at
present what are the chances for his recovery.
He is being looked after in first-class style:
indeed, he could not receive better attention
were he a millionaire."
Br. Foster continued: T think that Mr.
Phillips must have given symptoms of mental
prostration abont the first of July, because at
tliat time he began to say and do some strange
things now and then. Undoubtedly, his afflic
tion Is the result of working when he was not
physically able. For the last six months be has
been an Invalid and ought not to have traveled
about with a ball club. His system became so
weak that the result is not to be wondered at
when we consider the troubles and trials be bad
with the team. If. Mr. Phillips does recover be
should never again take charge of a ball team.
The Irregular hours pt sleep, the fatigue of
travel, change of water and diet, are all too
much for a man of Mr. Phillips' weak bolld."
Regarding the actions of Manager Phillips
at Philadelphia, Dr. Foster said: "During the
majority of the time Mr. Phillips Is quite
rational, and talks In the most sensible and
logical way. When he comes down to baseball,
however, he becomes exceedingly visionary.
But even in bis visionary moments he talks
extremely reasonable. There Is no truth In
tho stories of his talking about millions and
snch like. He did talk to me. and in a very
logical way, about a schemo by which the
Pittsburg club could be bought and made Into
a stock company.
'The scheme, as he outlined It to me, showed
clearly bow considerable money could be made
on the deal. He is never boisterous or violent,
but lust as calm and serene as he always was.
In his most rational moments he longs to get
home to Pittsburg. When I first arrived at
Philadelphia to see him, poor fellow, he seemed
so clad, because he thought he would get home
to Pittsburg in the morning. He wanted to
square up his hotel bill then and there. He
has a strong love for Pittsburg, and shows It
on all occasions."
Nothing has been done by the directors yet
regarding the management of the team for the
balance of the season. It is now deemed a cer
tainty that Mr. Phillips will not be back here
this jear, even though he recovers speedily.
President Nimick is extremely worried over
the matter, and during a conversation cited
the difficulties Indianapolis has bad in getting
a manager. It is understood, however, that
Secretary Scandrett will look after the
finances of the team during the remainder of
the season, and that either Dunlap or Hanlon
will manage the players.
Secretary Scandrett Is out of the city, but
what his mission is nobody seems to be able to
tell. It is rumored that he Is on the hunt for a
good battery. The club is willing to pay the
price for a first-class battery, or trade somo
good players for one.
Mr. Keys Bar Some Good Thing About
Hnl Pointer, the Pacer.
It is interesting to hear a veteran's opinion
ona subject in which he has been interested
for years, and probably nobody will dispute the
statement that what Mr. Samuel Kejs, of this
city, says about pacers goes every time. Mr.
Keys has just returned from a trip to Detroit
and Cleveland, where he witnessed the wonder
ful racing, not only by pacers, but trotters.
During a conversation last evening the veteran
said a tew entertaining things about a race or
two at Cleveland.
"Hal Pointer," said Mr. Keys, "Is an extra
ordinary horse. It was only by a singular
stroke of fortune that this wonderful youngster
was not owned by Pittsburgers when he won
the 2:25 pace at Cleveland. 1 was negotiating
for htm and just when we were satisfied of his
quality I received a letter from a friend stat
ing that Mr. Geers had bought a half interest
in him. Of course that settled the matter. I
saw him pace and win at Cleveland, and he
filled my eyes completely. What I mean by
that Is he was all that I could desire. He Is a
great young horse, and he would have been a
credit to Pittsburg had we secured Jum. He
has all the qualities of a first class pacer."
Mr. Keys then talked about the free-for-all
pace, and 6ald that Brown Hal was one of the
luckiest horses possible to win the race. Said
Mr. Keys: "If our friend Turner had done
right with Gossip, Jr., he could have won the
race, but he came out for the race a heat too
soon. "Roy Wilkes was also spoiled by the same
kind of handling, and Bessemer or Jewett
could "have had an excellent show If their
drivers bad used their heads reasonably.
Brown Hal Is a'good horse, but If good judg
ment had been displayed by the drivers of
other horses he would not have won."
Speaking of the meeting generally Mr. Keys
said it was one of the best be has seen. The
races were all good and some extraordinary
torses appeared.
Another good authority who frequently visits
this city, but who objects to his name being
used publicly, spoke very highly. Indeed, of
the meeting. He said: 'The meeting was one
of the best I have seen, and I have seen all the
leading meetings In the country every year for
a lone time. There was nothing to complain
of. Roy Wilkes lost the free-for-all pace
through his driver. Thornless was better than
J. B Richardson when they met, but look out
for Richardson. Jack Is a trotter of the first
quality. Veritas is another speedy customer,
and the miles ho trotted were long ones, as he
had to get on the outside almost every beat
toward the finish. I hear good accounts about
Star Lilly, owned by Andy Welch. She will
win something in the circuit If she is wanted.
There is also considerable talk about Nelson,
the Eastern wonder, who starts in the circuit
shortly The talent: did not wlr very much at
Cleveland. The prospects of the circuit are
very good, indeed.'

Keesport team were plucky enough to play
herb to-day and face tho law. They put up a
strong game against Wheeling, and there was
no trouble. The weather, however, was damp
and cold, but the attendance was good. The
features of tho game were the playing of Young
man at short for the McKeesports, the catching
of Haller for Wheeling, and the good pitching
of both pitchers. The fielding of McKeesport
was very good. Youngman's batting was a
special feature. The McKeesports won by bet

His Noisy Reception Offends the Governor,
and John Is Locked Up.
Jackson, Miss., August 1 The train bear
ing Sullivan missed connection above, and his
arrival was delayed 12 bouts, reaching Jackson
aV 4.10 P. it. The day being Sunday, a larger
crcwd than would otherwise have assembled at
the station was in waiting, and numbered 1,500
or more. When the party alighted and started
for the Edwards Hotel the crowd followed and
made considerable demonstration, some feoing
so far as to hurrah for Sullivan.
The manner of his reception and evident In
tention of his friends to make a jolly occasion
of it led Governor Lowry to at once take steps
to prevent what he deems an Insult to tbe State
and an unwarranted piece of impudence on the
part of those who should have advised quiet
and retirement on tbe part of Sullivan, and at
6 o'clock he sent for Deputy Sheriff Chiles and
ordered him to convey the prisoner to the city
jail, where he now b locked up with but one.,
friend. Matt Clune, who was allowed to accom
pany him.
Sullivan snbmltted quietly to the order of
tho Governor, and rather blames his friends for
making his situation worse than it otherwise
would have been but for their overzealous at
tentions. BARKLEY IN LUCK.
He Receives S7S0 to Leave Kansas City
and Go to Toledo.
A letter was received in this city yesterday
from Sam Barklcy, formerly second-baseman
of the Pittsburg club. Sam is now playing
third for the Toledo club, and his letter explains
definitely the conditions of his transfer from
Kansas City to Toledo.
He states that be and Watklns could not cet
along pleasantly and that he had resolved to
quit ball playlnc entirely. A deal was made to
sell bim to Toledo, but be refused to play an
other day, except be received one-half of bis
purchase money. Finally President Speas. of
tbe Kansas Citys, agreed to give him one-half,
and he was sold for 51.000, he receiving $500 of
it. He also received 250 from Manaeer Mor
ton, of the Toledos, and Sam naturally thinks
tbe deal was a good one for him. His present
intentions are to quit ball playing at the end
of this season.

Jack Glasscock's Management Hikes Indianapolis
People Feel Gay.
Tbe special baseball correspondence of
The DiSPATCH.from authoritative and able
writers, contains much interesting and use
ful information. The recent good playing
of the Washington team has increased the
attendance wonderfully. Assistant Secre
tary of State "Wharton is a baseball en
thusiast Cleveland baseball patrons feel
blue about their club's many defeats, bat
still think well of the team. Glasscock's
management of the Hoosiers gives great
rsrxciAi.coEnisroNDE"ci orrm d'sfatch.:
Washington, August 4. People will pa
tronize good ball playing, and this fact has
been demonstrated within the past two weeks
at Capitol Park In the contests between the
Senators and NewYorks and Bostons. Bis
piriting gaps on the bleaching noards and a
huge vacuum in tbe grand stand confronted
managers of visiting organisations, and soma
one thoucht there must be a hoodoo on the
Washington team. Suddenly, however, the
Cleveland team began to lose games, and sim
ultaneously the Washingtonians began to pick
up. Probably it was the Inf nsion of new blood
in the persons of John Irwin and Bee'cherof
the Wilkesbarres, but certainly new lite seems
to have been Imparted to hitherto sluggish ball
tossers, until it is now a pleasure to see the
Senators at work.
"It makes no difference If our boys do lose,"
said an enthusiastic and steady grand stand
patron. "No one with tho slightest grain of
sense can complain that he does not get his
money's worth now at Capitol Park. The tail
enders are playing ball in every sense of the
word, and if they continue their present gait it
will not be difficult for them to shake off tbe
epithet so freely applied to them."
Even chronic grumblers failed to dissent from
the decision of tbe management Wednesday,
when the rain broke up the game with the
Giants from New York just after the third inn
ing. No rain checks are issued or money re
funded after the third inning, but it would
have been a cretty nice point if the patrons of
the game had Insisted that tbe fourth Inning
had not progressed far enough to, justify their
being refused either money or checks. But so
pleased were the spectators with the showing
made by tbe home team against Mutrle's men
that they forbore to raise tbe slightest kick,
but thought the exposition of scientific slug
ging agalnstO'Bay more than made amends for
any deficit in their pocketbooks.
With the advent of the Bostons came a larger
attendance than has marked the games for
many moons, and It was exhilarating to the
players on both sides to see such a good-natured
ana Impartial crowd of baseball experts pres
ent. Every good play.no matter by whom it
was made, was enthusiastically appreciated,
and in the distribution of favors In this respect
the spectators seemed to take especial pride in
encouraging Nash and Johnston, both of whom
are very popular here. This is no doubt owine
to their former connection with the crack
Richmond, Va team, from which they gradu
ated to become Beaneaters.
Since Secretary Blaine went to Bar Harbor
to spend his vacation tbe State Department has
been under the jurisdiction of Assistant Sec
retary Wharton, an old Harvard man. He was
bewailing his lnck the other day in being tied
down to his desk so that he could not go to
Capitol Park and see a game of baseball. "In
fact," continued the Secretary, "I have not
seen a game of baseball this season."
"But you are not an enthusiast on the na
tional game," queried bis visitor, "for I ha--e
never beard you even express an opinion on the
"ft is hardly necessary for me to express my
opinion when I look at the little finger of my
left hand." was the good natured response. "I
carry the scars of battle in the shape of a
broken joint. When I was a Harvard man. in
1867 to 1869, 1 had an ambition to be a pitcher
and my wishes were finally granted, and I was
attacbed to one of tbe amateur nines of Alma
Mater. Without being egotistical on the sub
ject I must say that I became quite an expert
underhand pitcher, and was pretty well thought
of by my associates. One day, however, a line
ball came at me so sharply and quickly that I
could not getont of the way, and there was a
sadden collision between my little finger joint
and tbe ball. A broken finger was tbe result,
coupled with a determination to eschew active
participation in the national game for the re
mainder of my earthly career. But 1 enjoy
looking at a good game of ball as much as ever,
although I have discarded the bat for the snlit
bamboo pole to enable me to play with luckless
salmon, which I may encounter in New Bruns
wick waters." B, M. Lakner.
Their Cleveland Patrons Bine, Bat Hopeful
of Future Success.
Cleveland, O., August L The atmosphere
is still blue in this region, almost as blue as a
Kentucky whetstone, and all because our pre
cocious Infants can't strike their upward gait.
Every one deplores the ill-success of the club,
and yet it is impossible to turn upon it and
haul the members of the team over the coals,
for it Is apparent that they are striving just as
eagerly to win as ever. This fact is evident in
the constant loss of games by a rnn,or two. If
the score would be 15 to 4, or 11 try 2 or some
thing of that sort, it would be obvrems that the
work of the pitchers or the fielding of the club
was weak. On the contrary, a majority of one
or two runs in a game fought hard up to the
ninth inning has been in a majority of cases
iust enough for the visiting club Jto win. If tbe
nfants must go down they are lit least making
a desperate effort to save themselves, and de
serve credit to that extent.
The rumors that, from time to time, have
been circulated of a permanent baseball
grounds and elaborate stands for this city are
at last taking shape In a soihewbat definite
manner. The lease of the preent park has but
a year to run, and It is not probable that it can
be renewed. It is a pity that t cannot be saved
to the club. It is probably m re expansive than
any ground In tbe League, ar i outfielders have
every chance in the world to do brilliant work.
But one ball has ever been b. tted over a fence,
and that by Buck Ewing, who) made his wondor
f ul long here during one of the games with the
Giants. The ball went over left field fence,
which Is three hundred andlseventy odd feet
from the home plate. The new grounds may
not be quite as large, and yet will be larger
than those of any of the Eastern cities. Ihe
stands will be erected with'an eye to architect
ural beauty, as well as comfort and good ar
rangement to watch tbe gaihes. Thero Is no
question abont the future oV the game in this
city. With any kind of a successful club there
will always be money in it, and the venture a
profitable one. I
When the Clevelands open the Eastern series
at home they will do so in a tiew uniform. It
will be all black, even to caps and stockings.
The only white In the suit will be tbe belt and
the letters across the breast pt the shirt. Tho
nnlformwas ordered when the team was In
Philadelphia, and. as Loftus jokingly re
marked, "We got the mourning in advance."
The suit will not be a'Nadjy, the trousers being
made loose after the present pattern of the
Cleveland's solid blue suit.
The last game here between Cleveland and
Indianapolis, as a pitcher's battle, has yet to
find its equal In the baseball annals of the city.
Bakely'fr work was simply Wonderf nLand Boyle
Has bat a point or two hfehtnd him. It was
curious to note how exactly opposite methods
produced similar effects. For instance, Boyle
employed a swift drop to puzzle the Cleveland
people, and Bakely did all his work with a
speedy, jumping raise. Benny couldn't resist
the temptation to strike bt every ball that
came along and was easily retired on "atmos
pheric agitation" as a consequence.
Sprague, our lef t-banded'pltcher, goes to To
ledo, but with a string tied to him; Cleveland
found it impossible to wdrk five pitchers and
yet wanted Spraguo to get in a season's work.
He may be wanted very1, much another year.
He has some wonderful qurvea,and with a lit
tle more backbond wouldlmako a great twlrler.
Hoosler Patrons Forgive the Beys Becnnso
of Recent Victories.
rsrxciAL coBBxsroxsxNCz or the dispatch, j
INDIANAPOLIS, August 4. The local cranks,
as one man, have all forgotten and forgiven tbe
past sins and shortcomings of the Hoosler ball
team, and the club will be given a royal recep
tion when it makes its appearance against
Boston on tbe home grounds Ion .Monday. No
one could ask lor a bettor tecord than tbe team
has made on the trip that will end to-day. The
Hoosiers played great ball in Cleveland, and,
by defeating that club in both games played
and Pittsburg four out of five, it baa come to
the' front in fine style, and the public has no
reason whatever to complain. Day by day the
wisdom of making a change in the manage
ment becomes more apparent, and the only re
gret Is that It was not made sooner. Glasscock
Is doing much better with the team than Ban
croft could ever have done, and had be been in
charge earlier in tbe season the Hoosiers
would have been much higher in the race than
they are. The new manager seems to have put
some life' into the team, and the result is
plainly shown. President Brush Is highly
pleased with Glasscock, and frankly admits
that a great mistake was made when he was
not given the place last spring. The men have
all displayed much interest in the success of
the club since Jack took hold, and not a man
In the team has failed to do his best at all
times. The most perfect harmony prevails
among tbe players, and the habits of the men
off the field havo been excellent.
Glasscock has been a greater success than
even his warmest friends anticipated, and it he
continues to do as well In the f uturo as be has
in the past, the Hoosiers will not be In seventh'
place at tbe close ofthe season. Such work as
the club Is doing now will land It In fifth posi
tion if it can be kept up, and as tbe team has IS
games on tbe local grounds before going East
again the boys will make a bard pull during the
next three weeks.
The pitchers are doing good work now, es
pecially Boyle and Getzein, and if Krockand
Anderson or either of them prove Successful
there Is no reason why the Hoosiers should not
yet give some of the other clubs trouble.
Krock'swork in Pittsburg shows great im
provement over his first game here, and Mana
ger Glasscock thinks that the Chicagoan is
gome to be a valuable man for the team.
While Anderson did not show up very well in
his came it Is no sure thing that be Is a failure.
He had not pitched for nearly three weeks and
was, of course, out of practice. Glasscock
thinks well of tbe young man. He has good
speed, excellent curves and a nice drop ball,
and all he needs is command. He will be given
another trial.
President Brush has signed Andy Bommers,
recently released by Chicago, and he has re
ported for dnty. The Chicago players all say
that be is one of tbe most promising young
catchers in tho country. Indianapolis now has
five pitchers and four backstops, and a claim
has been made for Peter Wood, the pitcher
released by Philadelphia. It is also intimated
that the management has two other men in
view who may be secured. In tbe light of these
facts it is hardly probable that Indianapolis
will retlr from the League at the close of tbe
Horace Phillips had many friends in this city
and his sad affliction is deeply reeretted by
bnndreds who knew him. Phillips was a hard,
faithful worker, and one of the best managers
in the country. It is sincerely hoped by his
friends here that be may recover.

Tarious Ways of Getting Steerage
Passengers Into America
An Immigration Commissioner Examines
Incoming Steamers.
Ho Complaints Made, and tt Steerage Clean and
Well TenUlated.
A New York Immigration Commissioner
has made up his mind to investigate the
manner in which steamship lines handle
their steerage passengers. His first day's
work proved a waterhaul. Some peculiar
I stories of immigrants are told.
New Yobk, August 4. President Eidg-
' way, of the Immigration Commission, had
planned a little surprise party for whatever
emigrant steamers might be coming in to
day, the project being a part of a general
scheme he has for furnishing himself with
all the conditions of emigrant travel and
the general mode of treatment ot immigrants
on.their way to this country and after they
get here.
At 9 o'clock in the morning the Commls-
'sioner took the Boss, one of the fleet of
steam yachts attached to Castlo Garden, and
steamed out into the harbor. In the absence
of any steamers to meet, the Commissioner
followed the last comer, the French liner.
'LaBretagne, up to her dock, and boarded
her before any of the steerage passengers
had left the vessel. He plunged at once
into the steerage and moved around among
i the tumbled-up mattresses and into the
kitchen and other holes and corners.
He found nothing to criticise. The steer
age was clean and seemed to be well venti-
ilated, and the passengers were cheerful-
looking and had no complaints to make.
They went down to the dock while the Com
missioner was fussing with the mattresses,
and be followed them and mingled with
them. As soon as it was discovered that he
i was "Monsieur Le Commissionaire" he had
his hands full.
Immigrants don't like to go through Cas-
ttle Garden, and as the only way in which
they can escape that course is by proving
themselves American citizens, they adopt
, all manner of means to convince the au
thorities that they have been here before.
About the only thing that goes with the
Castle Garden men is naturalization papers,
'but Commissioner Bidgway was disposed to
take a reasonable view of the matter.
A woman came np wi th her husband's
naturalization certificate. A young man,
h who said he was her son, vouched ior her,
(and she was let go. A man who claimed to
nave been a citizen lor a good many years,
put who could only show his "first paper?,"
was passed by the Commissioner, never-
theless, when he produced a discharge from
J tbe regular army.
Edward Gill, who said that he went out
I on the Persian Monarch with Buffalo Bill,
under the cognomen of "Boy .Bill, but
who had deserted and come home because
the couldn't make anybody understand him
in Paris, although ne naa bongnt a conver
sation book and studied it diligently, was
passed on to Denver without delay on the
strength of his sombrero and red shirt,
A very peculiar looking woman who
claimed to have been born and brought ud
'in this country and to have lived here until
two months ago, applied to the Commis
sioner lor ner freedom, w nen ne asked her
I where she was from she told him she didn't
1 propose to be bully-ragged, but finally ad
mitted that ner come was in jHonroe, Mich.
She was evidently an American, but she
seemed to be inclined toward insanity, and
the Commissioner decided that she had
better go to Castle Garden to be examined
ana regisiereu, ueiorc ueing aaiowea to go
into the city alone. She said she didn't
care, anyhow, and sat down to wait for the
Tbe most interesting case was that of
Edward Hardre, an Alsatian. "His story
was thst he was a shoemaker, and had
started for this country with the savings of
his lifetime, about 900 francs. He had
bought his ticket at an agent's office in
Paris, for 148 francs. Then
of 760 francs. He produced a certificate of
,the Paris Pasha, that he had been robbed of
'that sum, "by the American way," that is,
i by pickpockets. With 20 francs and the
address of a friend in the shoemaking busi
ness at ne Liomnara street, Philadelphia,
he had got on board the steamer. The first
i thing he did was to accidental! v destroy his
i ticket, and when the purser came around he
jhad nothing to show that he had ever paid
his passage. He was allowed to ride, all the
same, but when he arrived here the question
.came np whether he was a pauper immi
grant, a stowaway, an able-bodied embryo
citizen, or what. The steamship officers
took him to the office on the dock, and the
Commissioner, alter listening to his story,
-ordered that he be held on the vessel until
the case could be submitted to the Collector
for a decision. There is not much doubt
that he will be admitted, provided his story
(is at all corroborated, but meantime the poor
Alsatian is in a dreadful stew.
Tt is Commissioner Bidwav's intention
qto make similar trips frequently, and also
.io drop in at ona nours at an tne insinu
ations connected with the immigrant service.
(The Boston Ran on the Rocks While Making
n Trial Trip.
Newport, B. I., August 4. The utmost
secrecy is being maintained on board the
cruiser Boston to-nicht regarding the acci
dent which occurred this afternoon. The
Boston had been np the bay making her
runs over the measured mile course, and
'these proved to be satisfactory. She had
made ber last trip, and bad come back as
far as Bose. Island, where she had been in
the habit of anchoring.
The wind was heavy, but it is believed
that there was no excuse lor her getting on
the rocks. One of the big plates was cracked
and the water rushed in. Immediately the
hands were put to the pumps and divers
have been to work all day patching her np.

The Number of Crimes Which Have Startled
a Suburb of Chicago.
Chicago, Angust 4. Murderous as
saults, highway robberies and burglaries
have kept the citizens of Englewood in a
state of terror for three weeks past. There
has been an epidemie of crime in spite of
tbe efforts of Captain Sherwood and Detec
tive Healey. Beginning with the brutal
murder of Daniel Burrows, who was kicked
and beaten to death on Atlantic, street
within a hundred feet of his home, the town
seems to have been the base of operations of
organized bands of criminals, and their ex
ample seems to have been contagious with
the bovs.
Theiinrglars inaugurated their movement
by breaking into the house ot Jesse Sher
wood, Chief of the town of Lake police
force, (now Captain) and taking jl,000
worth of property, notwithstanding there
were burglar alarms on every door and
window in tbe house. Then in" quick suc
cession followed other crimes. The town
has been put under a military discipline,
and every stranger is obliged to account for
himself and his story verified. If anything
suspicious is found upon him or he refuses
to give a proper account of himself he is
booked for disorderly conduct and sent to
the Bridewell. If men are found loitering
around in the night they are locked up until
the reports from the different parts of the
town come in next morning.
Tho Horrible and Pecnllnr Murder of a
Young Girl of 15.
Bebkville, Tex., August 4. Mamie
F. Allison, a young girl ot 15, was found
dead in her bed Tuesday morning by her
sister, 9 years of age, who failed to notify
the neighbors of the fact, although friends
were living not a thousand feet away. Tbe
young lady's parents were gone from home,
'having left Sunday not to return until
"Wednesday. Tuesday morning the girl
found her sister dead. Wednesday a neigh
bor called to get Allison to do some work
for him, and the younger girl told him her
father was not at home and would return
that day, but he could not do any work as
her sister was dead, adding:
"But don't tell anyone until pa comes
The physicians who examined the body
found that the most terrible crime had been
first committed, and that the fiend had
added murder by deliberately choking bis
victim with both hands, clasping her throat
until death ensued. Great clots of blood
were found under the skin, which was
blackened and disfigured terribly from her
throat down over her breast and shoulders.
From the testimony it developed that the
younger sister was then threatened with
death it she gave alarm and was terror
stricken. Officers are working on a clew
with little chance of success.
The Beat Ship of the New Navy Has a Close
Newpobt, B, I., August 4. The navy
has just escaped losing one of the finest of
its new ships. The Boston was last even
ing run on a rock on the southern end of
Bose Island, in this harbor. The Boston
had just completed the last of a series of
most important speedmaneuvers and trials
in Narragansett bay and was returning to
her anchorage off Goat Island when the
accident occurred. No soon'er did the
crufser strike than oft she slid. In an in
stant ail the water-tight compartments were
banged tight shut, but not before the com
partments of the double-bottom nnder engine-room
were completely flooded.
The Boston was at once headed close in
shore, and now with all her compartments
tightly shnt she appears to keep the water
confined. If nothing worse develops she
will be able to reach New York by steaming
slowly. As soon as she makes the navy
yard not a moment will be lost in getting
her into the dry dock, and until this is done
no idea can bo formed of tbe extent of -ber
injuries. No one doubts that she has
knocked a hole in ber bottom somewhere
amidships. Had she been going at a little
higher rate of speed she would have torn a
hole in her side large enough to have driven
a team through.
A Young; Couple Found Sacrificed to the
Husband's Insane Jealousy.
Baltimobe, August 4. Pour pistol
shots which rang out upon the air this
morning, shortly after midnight, summoned
the officers to a most sorrowful and myster
ious double tragedy. Sergeant Meehan and
a patrolman effected an entrance through
the back way of 325 Lanvale street. On
the second story, in a little hallway con
necting the front and rear bed chamber, lay
the bodies of a young man and young
woman, feet to feet. The man was William
Dolan, bookkeeper for J. H. Mann & Co.,
wholesale clothiers, and the woman was his
handsome wife. There was a bullethole in
the woman's breast, just above the heart,
which had been pierced, and the man had
shot himself in a precisely similar way.
The death of each had evidently been in
stantaneous. The woman lay on her left
side, with her cheek on her left arm. Her
dark hair was just a little untidy, as
though she had begun to take it down. It
was a tragic ending of a married life of
three years which had a romantic beginning,
being an elopement. It is stated that
Dolan was insanely jealous of his wife,
though there was never the slightest justifi
cation for it
A Man Attacks His New Son-In-Baw and
Is as Once Chopped Up.
Bieminoham, Ala., August 4. At
Montevallo, Shelby county, to-day, Will
iam McCall killed his father-in-law, Sol
Harris. The killing was a horrible
butchery, Harris "being completely disem
boweled and his throat cut from ear to ear.
McCall, a few days ago, married one of
Harris daughters. The couple eloped,
their marriage being bitterly opposed by
Harris. The young coupled returned to
Montevallo Friday night, and yesterday
morning Harris remarked to a friend:
"Bill McCall or I will be in hades before
Harris armed himself with a heavy stick
and hunted up McCall. He attacked him
with the stick, and knocked him down three
times. McCall then drew long dirk
knife, and with one blow disemboweled
Harris. Another blow across tbe throat
with the knife almost severed the old man's
head from his body, and killed him in
stantly. McCall surrendered to the officers,
and is in jail.

Set in Motion and Its Wheels Begin
ning to Kerolve Ecgnlarly.
The Pretty typewriter Playing an Im
portant Part in the Work.
Importance of tbe Kegro u a Factor Is Population on
the Decrease.
The census machine is at work in Wash
ington, and, although it is quite large, it
will be some time before it is at work in full
force. Some surprises in comparisons are
sure to be developed.
"Washington, August 4. A surprising
ly large machine is that which Mr. Porter
has set in motion in the quarters ot the Cen
sus Office in this city, and it Is not a tenth
part as big now as it will be a year hence.
Abont 100 typewriters and clerks are now at
work. In March of next year 2,000 clerks
will be at work, and in June the 40,000 enu
merators will take the field. Ten pretty
girls are now' working typewriters in the
Census Office, and soon there will be SO. It
is a remarkable fact that every one of the
ten is really pretty, though good looks is
not one ot the tests applied by the little in
itiation of the Chinese Civil Service Com
mission, which examines applicants for em
ployment. In 1880 the typewriter was not used at all
by General "Walker, but Mr. Porter consid
ers that the day of the pen copyist has gone
and will not have bis records in script
where the legible work of the typewriter is
practicable for his purpose.
This substitution of the typewriter for
the pen, Mr. Porter calculates, will result
in a saving of $20,000 to the Government,
consequent npon the rapidity with which
the work will be done. '
The only workor a penman at the office
is in the addressing of envelopes, and this
will not require a large force for several
months to come. "When the work of tbe
census taking is at its height there will
probably be 40 or 50 ladies employed in ad
dressing envelopes. The numbers of these
coverings of census office communications
called i g use seem Incredible, even now when
the work is not developed, and it is not un
common for an order of 250,000 envelopes to
be given.
Among the pretty lady clerks whose work
it is to address these missives is Miss Ella
Byron, a niece of the late John Boach, the
Philadelphia shipbuilder. She is said to
have the
of 3,500 envelopes addressed in one day of
seven hours, while 1,200 isconsidered a very
good day's work for the usual penman.
The mail of the office already comprises
several thousand letters daily, largely com
posed of applicants ior positions. The office
of enumerator is accompanied by a very
small compensation, yet 100,000 applica
tions have been put in lor appointment.
Each letter received is answered, which in
volves a tremendous correspondence. Sev
eral hundred of tbe letters daily have to be
answered by the superintendent, who em
ploys four stenographers.
Not a small part of the work now being
prosecuted under Mr. Porter is that of pre
paring the maps showing the census dis
tricts lor all parts of the country. These
districts do not correspond with the Con
gressional districts, but are composed of
counties giving each supervisor about five
times as much territory as Congressmen
have Inclosed within their fences. Twenty
topographers are employed in preparing the
maps, and they will be kept very busy for
the coming six months.
The next census will dissipate many
errors that have grown out of comparisons
made between the census of 1880 and that of
1870. The most prominent misrepresenta
tion that will be corrected will be the one
that asserts the phenomenal growth of the
negro population of the country when com
pared with the whites. The comparisons of
the cext census will be made with those of
1880, the only approaehably correct census
as to pipulation or anything else made in
the history of the Government.
The observation of mortality tables, made
more complete during the fast ten years
than ever before, show that the negro popu
lation has a far higher death rate than the
whites. In "Washington it is nearly donble
that of the whites, and yet this district has
been fitly termed the paradise of the negro.
Nowhere else in the civilized or uncivilized
world is he
so well clothed, so well housed, so well fed.
There are. more of the race in receipt of an
nual salaries, removed from the condition
of day laborers, than in any city of the
world at any period of the world's history.
Even the very poorest ore cared for better
than the average negro in any other city of
the country, and yet the death rate ot the
negro year after year is nearly double that
of the white man.
It is so in every city in the country, and
in nearly all Southern cities, where statis
tics are kept, the ratio of death is larger
ior tbe negro than in "Washington. In
Charleston, Mobile,Savannah, New Orleans,
Galveston, St. Louis and Memphis, the
death rate of tbe negro sometimes rises to
more than donble that of the whites. The
birth rate of the negro population is diffi
cult to obtain, because they
but from such statistics as we have the
birth rate does not greatly exceed, in cities,
that of the whites. In "Washington there is
an excess of negro births as compared with
the whites, but it is not nearly double.
Prom all that cau be learned from health
and mortality statistics kept in cities, it is
the best opinion that the negro population
does not increase proportionately with the
whites, and that the next census will show
that in the whole country the importance of
the negro as a factor in our population is on
the decrease.
