" After a long but not an unexpjcted ab
sence Dame Fortune reappeared and perched
herself on Pittsburg's banner yesterday.
This statement does cot mean that good
luck or good fortune caused the home vic
tory, it only means that the smiles of the
good old lady somehow or other were be
stowed on the efforts of the home players.
They played a winning game from start to
finih and fairly clipped all the fins from
It is some time since the home team had
such a very pleasant time of it. The result
never seemed la doubt, although In the second
Inning the visitors went to the front by one
ran. The playing of the two teams, however,
,was so different that the revolt was a foregone
conclusron. The lead was on the side of the
visitors only a very short time, indeed. The
borne representatives had on their batting
clothes, and the young man who has been a
puzzle to the great sluggers of Boston recently,
WAS QUITE A MARK
for the Irregulars of Pittsburg. Mr. Haddock's
deliveiy was sized up quite comfortably and
banned all over the lot. Be is a thin and wiry
young fellow. Strength does not seem to be
bis great stronghold, but he is wonderfully
speedy and trick . Yesterday, however, he was
not equal to the occasion, and a loncer rest
would probably have made things pleasanter for
him. He was fairly well supported. Daly,
however, did not do anything brilliant in catch
ing blm. The ex-Ansonito at ous time became
extremely careless of the result.
Morris was in the box for the home players
and he did well. He pitched with all his old
time trickery and much of bis well-known
speed was shown. His pitching was so effective
that not a run was earned off bis delivery.
Carroll caught him very well and the fielding
was excellent. The attendance was about L
000, the weather was fine and everybody en
joyed the game because the home boys were
MADE A GOOD STAET.
The home team made two runs In the first
inning. Sundav started out with a scratch hit.
stole second and reached third on a wild throw
of Daly. Cirroll's sacrifice hit sent Sunday
home, and Rowe made a nice three-bagger to
center field. The ball flew over Hoy's head,
and he fell in turning tn ran for it Before he
could cet fairly alter the ball Rowe was com
fortably at third; he ought to have been at
home. Miller struck out, and Beckley'a single
scored Rowe. In the second inninc White led
off with a two-bagger to middle field. Dunlap
and Morris both were retired, and Sunday sent
Wntte home on a bit to right.
The third inning was a llvoly affair. Rowe
led off with a scratch hit. and Miller flew to
. Mack. Beckley made a hit. and Rowe scored
on Kucbne's short grounder. Kuehne does
not lay anv claim to hot cakes, umbrellas, etc,
bnt his sacrifice bit was a timely one, as Rowe
scored. White made a corking bit, and Sun
lap sent out a two-bagger, the total number
of runs so far being three, and good ones at
LOIS OF BUNS.
The sixth inning as the most surprising of
the day. Carroll led off and got his bae on
balls. Rowe followed with a good single to
middle and Miller sent Carroll borne on a single
to left. Miller was retired at second on a short
hit by Beckley and the latter got to first all
right. Beckley stole second aided by a passed
ball. Kuehne flew out to Wise and the latter's
fumble of White's grounder allowed both
Rowe and Beckley to score. Dunlap cot bis
base on balls and a b't by Morris sent in both
White and Dunlap. The latter scored whllo
Morris was dodging between first and second.
The visitors made a rnn in the first inning.
Hoy got bis base on balls and sot home on a
lilt and a sacrifice. In the second inning G.
Irwin got to first on a fumble by Rowe and
Daly reached second on a wild throw by Rowe,
Irwin scoring. After two men were out in the
third Inning. G. Irwin got first on a life, and
reached second on a wild throw by Dunlap.
Dalv's two-bagger sent him borne.
After A. Irwin was out in the fifth inning. his
brother got bis base on balls and so did Daly.
A wild pitch advanced eich man a base, and a
sacrifice by Carney sent Irw In home. The visi
tors did not look like scoring again. Curry
umpired a good game. Following is the score:

BLAMED THE UMPIRE.
Tho Old Gas Repeated Again nt Cleveland
The Phlllle Won.
Cleveland, August 8. Umpire Lynch to
day by errors of judgment lost the gams to
Cleveland. Two of bis decisions were wrong,
and by them Philadelphia won. ZIramer was
hit in the throat by a foul tip, and may be com .
polled to lay off for some time. Clements was
hit in the bead, and Lynch was also touched up
twice. Altogether it was an eventful game.

The Electrics, of Pittsburg, received a warm
reception at Homestead yesterday. They pre
dicted that the Homesteads would not make
three runs, but things were reversed. The
visitors got but two runs and not one of them
was earned. The features of tbe game were
the battery work of O'Neil and Hess, and tbe
bard hitting of the home team, who seem to
have gotten into B. B. form again. The Home
steads play the Braddock Blues a league game

Gray Light Defeats Jack in a Heat
AMERICAN CEICKETEKB IK ENGLAXD.
EcsnlU cf the Eaecs Down East General Sporting
The Grand Circuit races wers continued
at Buffalo yesterday. The special account
of The Dispatch ahows that there were
some great contests. J. B. Richardson was
beaten by Gean Smith. Cooper and Ben
doff are matched to tight for $20,000 and the
championship of the Cape of Good Hope.
JSrECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DtSFATCIM
BUFFALO. August 8. This, tbe third day
ot the grand circuit meeting, quite iulfilled
all expectations as the red letter event of
the week. The weather looked like rain at
one time, bat the snn came out in time to
reassure the people, and a big crowd, esti
mated from 12,000 to 15,000 made a lively
seene within thelnternational Fair Grounds.
Host of them had come to see the match be
tween Harry "Wilkes, the ex-king of free-for-all
trotters, and Belle Hamlin, the fastest
mare by the records now on tbe turf. It was
only a two in three heat affair to bo sure, but
it was for $5,000 stake money, with a like
amonnt added by the association to be divided
among tbe pair. Harry Wilkes was not him
self, and the mare had tbe easiest kind of a
victory. It was not expected that the Wilkes
gelding wonld win the first beat, but he had
always been faster as the race progressed, ana
when he Kept at Belle Hamlin's wheel all the
way in the first heat, which she trotted In 2 16,
there seemed to be a reasonable chance for
In the secopd mile bis speed was gone, and
tbe mare did not have to go faster than 2:17
to beat him by several lengths. This was far
from being such a match as Harry Wilkes had
trotted when he met Patron, Clingstone and
other cracks in former years. Belle Hamlin
was in excellent form.
BOY WILKE3 IN GOOD TBIM.
Other events were excellent, and a finer day's
trotting has never been seen anywhere. The
unfinished paco was conceded to Roy Wilkes,
who came out in good form, while his older
antagonists. Gossip, Jr., and Jewetr, were stiff
and out of form. The 220 class was morn un
certain, tor, though Grayllght had two heats.
Jack was still dangerous. Goldsmith brougbt
tbe big son of (Starlight to tbe wire in fine con
dition, limber and full of speed. Jack, on the
contrary, was unsteady and never In tbe chase,
so Grailigbt won a good race, trotting the
fourth heat to-day in 2:1 None of the
others were at all up to his speed.
Then after the match had been finished, the
stake of S5,0CO for tbe 2:34 class was contested.
In this there was a knockdown surprise for the
talent who bad plunged heavily on Hendry, for
another grey carried off the honor, while tbe
son of Damettors was beaten. Aleryon, the
victor, is a blind stallion with a wonderful
flight of speed. He showed this at Detroit in
the 510,000 stake, two weeks ago. but to-day be
was a champion for three miles, pulling In
three heats at an average below 21S and lo er
ing his record to 2:17.
In tbe 2:13 class the unbeaten Gean Smith
was, of course, tbe tip, but be bad the hardest
race of the season, and, in the last beat bad J.
B. Richardson been able to cet through, it is
hard to say what might harbappened. The
miles in this race were all fast, and Gean Smith
won by bis steady work, his only mistake being
in the fourth heat. Even the 4-year-olds cut a
prominent figure, and the performance of the
Tennesse stallion, McKwen. will rank as one of
the best ever accomplished by a colt after clos
ing a long gap and winning a first beat In 2:19.
He repeated in 2-1! and in the third heat
could have trotted in 2.20 had It been necessary.
Marie Jansen, Gillig and Governor Stanford,
representatives of different localities and
breeds, all showed good form, but were out
classed by the Southern bred colt Repetition
was expected to start, but was drawn last night.

Chicago, August 8. Disappointment was
the only result attained to-day at tbe opening
of the seventeenth annual regatta of the Na
tlocal Association ot Amateur Oarsmen, and
the twelfth annual regatta of the Mississippi
Valley Amateur Rowing Association.
Tho threatening weather prevented all hut a
few from attenning, and tbe rain that fell made
it disagreeable for spectators and oarsmen.
The wind blew so hard shortly after 3 o'clock
that the races bad to be postponed until 9
o'clock to-morrow. The Judges' boat ran into
the mud while starting down the course to be
gin the first rr.ee, and it was an hour or more
beforu sho got off. All this time the Senior
singles were a mile and a half away, being
tossed about by tbe waves and pelted with
rain. The telegraph operator at tbe three
quarter stake had a hard time ot it. He was
on a raft and bad to bold the instrument In bis
band and bang on to a post to keep from being
washed away. He wired to those iu tbe grand

two contests were attempted. The first race, a
trial heat for single sculls, senior, was finished,
with Dennis Donohue, of Toronto, first, a length
and a half in the lead of John A Corbett, of
Chicago, who took it easily.satlsfled apparently
with second place, entitling him to enter tbe

Cooper nnd BendofT Matched lo Fight for
More Than 830,000.
fBT CAELI TO Till DISPATCH.'
London, Augusts. Ad vices from the Cape
of Good Hope state that Woolf Bendoff, the
well-known pugilist of this city, and Jack
Cooper, the champion of South Africa, have
been matched to fight with the 'Raw' nns ac
cording to London prize ring rules for 4,600,
Bendott's backers wagering 2,500 to Cooper's
2,000. Tbe flznt is to be decided in September,
and it is creating considerable interest.
Jack Cooper, the champion of Sontb Africa,
arrived in New York In the fall of ltl&L On his
arrival be offered to fight any middle weight In
America. He stands 5 feet 1 Inches in height,
weighs ISO pounds and is 31 years old. Shortly
after Cooper's arrival in this countryhe was
matched to box Jim Fell for a purse. The con
test was to have been decided at the Alhambra,
New York, but the authorities stopped it. On
the following morning they fought in an uptown
hall and Felt won Cooper proved he was a scien
tific, game pugilist. Woolf Bendoff is also well

FIGHTING THE POOL ROOMS.
The Western Union Removes Ita Wires
From the Brighton Bench Track.
tSrECIAL TELXQBAH TO THE DISPATCH,!
New Yoek, August 8. The Western Union
Telegraph Company is said to have removed
its wires from the Brighton Beach race track
at Coney Island to-day. This action, following
so closely upon the trouVle at Monmouth Park,
indicates that the war between the racing asso
ciations and the pool rooms has only begun.
Tbe bookmakers doing business in tbe city
claim that they are put to no inconvenience by
tbe 'movement, and maintain that tbey will do
business at track odds despite tbe racing asso
ciations. Tbe Brighton Hotel is close enough to
tbe race track to get tbe winners off promptly
to the different rooms. The pool rooms in
town bobbed up serenely to-day with results
from Monmouth Park races, despite the fact
that no wires were run from tbe park.
The Western Union has a regular office at
Eatontowu, wbicb Is about a mile and a half
from Monmouth. Tbe obliging Secretary of
tbe track gave out word that be had a swift
horse ana buggy at the disposal of all who
wished to send messages, and his courtesy was
largely availed ot after each race. The West

park. Tbey 'will accept all business at Eaton

NorYin Green Sends a Sharp Reply to
the Postmaster General.
SOME VERY STRONG STATEMENTS.
Intimation That Mr. Wanamaker Is
Terr Badly Informed.
KO GOYEBNHEST GRANTS OP YALUB
To Anybody Else Hare Frcr Been Glren to the Tele
Dr. Norvln Green, President of the "West
ern Union Telegraph Company, is out in a
lengthy letter in reply to a communication
of Postmaster General Wanamaker. He
takes strong ground against the statements
made by the latter. Borne of the remarks
are almost direct contradictions.
New Yobk, August 8. Dr. Norvin
Green, President of the "Western Union
Company, tent to Postmaster General "Wan
amaker the following response to his recent
Hon. John Wanamaker, Postmaster General:
Beak Sir Acknowledging the receipt of
your letter of August 2, 1 beg to say I much re
gret that tbe publication of my letters to you,
to which you refer, was rendered necessary by
tne extraordinary statements "on information
furnished this (your) department" contained
in your 1 etter of J uly 13, an d exten slvely printed
in the newspapers on the following day.
You again refer to the privileges and benefits
derived by this company through the acts of
Congress, and especially the act of J86B. You
say: "Under these grants the company has
claimed the right to use, without compensa
tion of any kind as to right of way, all tho
highways of the country, urn the eroundof
their being postroads. It has broadened this
claim to tbe extent that tbe streets of cities
and towns are also postroads, and, therefore,
open and free to Its occupancy and use. The
courts have sustained it in this claim."
A DIBECT CONTBADICTIOIT.
Either you or we are very badly informed by
our respective legal advisers as to what has
been claimed by the telegraph company and
held by the courts in respect to the scope and
authority of that grant. I have bad occasion
from time to time to go through the records in
a great ms,ny cases, but I do not recall any in
stances in which claim has been made and sus
tained by the courts. What we understand tbe
Government did give us, in tho act of 188. was
a franchise and right to do telegraph business
in all the States, and this franchise was given
alike to all telegraph companies, or other par
ties who'mlght accept it; and subsequently, by
What was known as the Butler amendment, it
was especially extended to all railroad compa
nies. But tbe act never assumed to give us, and
could not give us. tbe right to plant our poles
on any but lands actually belonging to the
Government; and that right we have very
rarely exercised, except when tbe Govern
ment wanted us to extend lines for the con
venience of tbe Government into its navy
yards and military posts and stations, or to its
department office in the city of Washington.
Had you carefully read tbe decision in the
Pensacola telegraph case to wbicb you refer,
you would not have fallen into such a grievous
error upon this point. '
Chief Justice Walte, in tbe body of tbe
opinion, tbus defines the scope of the act of
I860 under consideration: "No Question arises
as to the authority of Congress to provide for
the appropriation of private property to the
uses of the telegraph, for no such attempt has
been made. Tbe use of public prcperty alone
Is granted. If private property is required, it
must, so far as the present legislation is con
cerned, be obtained by
with its owner. No compulsory proceedings
are authorized. State sovereignity under the
constitution is cot interfered with. Only na
tional privileges are granted." The decision
in this case, therefore, was that the State of
Florida could not prohibit the Western Union
Telegraph Company from erecting and operat
ing its lines of telegraph in that State, after it
bad acquired a right of way for Its plant from
a railroad company of that State, but it did
not hold that It was exempt from the obliga
tion to buy or condemn under State statutes,
the property necessary to enable it to build Its
Tbe railroads are post roads, as well as some
of the highways, and if the Government gives
us the right of way on post roads, why should
we have to pay tbe railroad companies for it!
We have to contract for and obtain our rights
of way from the parties who own them, whether
railroad companies, turnpike and plank road
companies, or Individual land owners; and in
case of streets and highways we have to obtain
license from tbe city, county or State authori
ties, or condemn under authority of State laws.
I sincerely wish that your ideas of the law
that we "are in fact occupying many thousands
of miles of post roads, and are privileged to
occupy all the highways in tbe United States,"
urder the grants of that act may prove sound
in law: but we have not relied upon that grant,
and are satisfied the courts would not sustain
your views. Our occupancy of the streets is
alway by license of tbe local authorities or of
the State, and in tbe case of the Elevated Rail
road Company in the city of New York, to
which you refer, we pay the companies who
own the structure for the right to string our
Second We seem to be getting nearer to
gether as to the power and duty of tbe Post
master General to name the rate of tolls to be
paid on Government messages. I only claim
that this power and duty are limited by the
constitution to a jnst compensation for tbe
service renuired; and that a just compensation
must cover the actual cost of tbe service with
something added for the use of facilities nec
essary to perform it; and as you say tbe Gov
ernment is willing to pay Just rates, we have
come qnite to an agreement on the principle
that must govern tbe fixing of rates to be paid.
Third I still Insist tbat tbe Government is
our most favored customer and that tbe rate
for Government service during the past five
vcars, considering tbe character ot the service,
is lower than that given to any other patron.
The Government rate has been I cent per word
for 1,000 miles or less. You may make up a
sdpposed message, with address and signature
of unusual length, and 20 words In tbe body
sent a short distance, under onr half rate con
tracts with certain transportation companies
and show that it is a trifle less than the Gov
ernment rate, but the half rate is generally
higher, and you forget that this half rate in
money is not all we get. To it must be added the
valneof what tbeso transportation companies
do for us. But when you apply even the
strongest supposed case to a message between
New York and Chicago, or Washington and
St. Louis, you will find the Government rate is
NOT A PROPER COMPARISON.
There is no comparison between the service
for the newspapers (even the special rates to
one newspaper) and messages transmitted for
the Government. A special messago of 1,500
words would make 50 Government messages of
SO words each; each message requiring a separ
ate checking, booking, numbering, routing, en
veloping and a special delivery. We often have
a special news report of 5.000 words or more,
equal to over 166 messages of 30 words each,
while our commercial and social messages
average bnt about 17 words, including address
For tbe year endinc July, 1877, our average
rate to tbe public was 43 6-10 cents per message.
Last year it was 31 2-10 cents per message the
reduction to the public being something less
than SO per cent. In tbe same period the cost
to the company of handling messages has been
reduced from 29 8-10 cents per messago to 23 2-10
cents, being about 20 per cent. So that the re
duction on the Government service has been
IXi times greater than tbe reduced cost of
handling the message and two-fifths greater
than tbe rednced rate on commercial messages.
Tbe sum of it all is that the Government has
given -.us nothing that cost tbe Government
anything; or tbat was of any value to the Gov
ernment to retain, nothing tbat bas not
been worth more to the Government
and the public that we should have
than it bas been worth to us; while in consider
ation therefor, the Government,by its reserved
power, has been
MAKING A SAVING
for a number of years at tho rate of nearly, if
not quite, $100,000 a year in the cost of its tele
graph service below what other customers pay.
while it enjoys, as it should, a preferred service
over all other business.
Although 1 have treated the. press service as
not properly comparable with the transmission
of Government messages. I desire to say that
in point of fact, if the Government bad paid
us during tbe past several years the rates stipu
lated by contract with tho Associated Press
on nows dispatches bearing ono address, the
aggregate revenue for the Government servico
would have been larger than it was at the rates
tbe Government paid, -
I bare tbe honor to remain, very respectfully
yours, Norve? Greek, President.

Travels to the Penitentiary to Servo
Ills Sentence Tbe Governor
Refuses to Interfere.
rspxciAL TELXQBAX TO Tins DISPATCH.
St. Xodis, August 8. The case of
Darwin "W. Pratt, convicted of embezzling
large sums of money from the McCormick
Reaper Company, of Chicago, while acting
agent in this city, was settled to-day by the
relusal oi Governor Francis to issue a par
don. On hearing the result, Pratt walked:
to the depot, took a train for Jefferson City
and voluntarily delivered himself up to the
warden of the penitentiary.
Pratt occupied quite a prominent position
in social and business affairs, 'and had full
charge of the McCormick branch in this
city. In his employment as bookkeeper
was a Sunday school superintendent named
Hiram Post. One day, three years ago, the
city was startled by the news that Post had
proven a defaulter for a large sum, and
when arrested had cut his throat. He re
covered, however, and asserted that he bad
been driven to crime by D. "W. Pratt, his
superior. Pratt was arrested and another
big hole was found in the receipts. Post
turned State's evidence and escaped. Pratt
was convicted and given two years.
The case came before the Supreme Court
a few weeks ago, and the judgment was
affirmed. Pratt's friends asked the Gov
ernor for a 20 days' stav, which was also
granted. Then a delegation of prominent,
St. Lonisans called upon the Governor and
submitted evidence tending to show that
Post had committed perjnry in order to save
himself. They asked tbat Pratt be par
doned on this evidence. The Governor last
night refused to interfere, and Pratt went
up to the penitentiary. Tbe McCormick
company rebutted all of Pratt's evidence
and fought hard against the pardon.

Resolved, That seeking to preserve and
rescue fall human nature from sin, we rely
chiefly on tbe grace of tbe sacraments and
prayer, we are in sympathy with every
wise and lawful movement to suppress
drunkenness, and we therefore approve
ot every just exercise of civil authori
ty which aims at the destruction of
Satan's well devised structure, the saloon, with
its nefarious methods of creating drunkards,
and perpetuating the victims and profligate
power of the drink trade in corrnptlng politics,
defeating the ends of law and disturbing the

Resolved, Tnat we condemn the practice of
using liquor in so-called Catholic clubs, at pic

by Catholics as scandalous and conducive to
intemperance and other deplorable disorders.
TBIIKG TO DODGE ICEBERGS.
The Manner In Which the Steamer Montreal
Quebec, August 8. Coptain Bentley, of
tbe Allan line steamer Assyrian, reports
that on Monday last, as the Assyrian was
sailing into tbe Straits of Belle Isle, she was
signalled by the lighthouse keeper that the
Dominion line steamer Montreal was
ashore. Coming into the straits the wrecked
steamer was seen lying on her starboard
beam ends, and only a small portion of ber
hull conld be seen ont of water. A great
number of icebergs were floating about the
straits and prevented the Assyrian from
taking a safe position to offer the ship
wrecked people any assistance.
Captain "Wall, of the Montreal, with his
crew and passengers, numbering in all
about 60 persons, were on the island of
Belle Isle awaiting help. He said that on
Sunday he was sailing throngh the atraits
when a thick fog came on and lasted a very
long time without his being able to hear any
hof tbe surrounding fog horns. At last
Captain Wall decided tbat, as tbe fog did
not abate, he wonld pass between the land
and a huge iceberg that barred the passage
through the straits. Unfortunately the
land was closer than he thought and the
steamer ran aground. The boats were
boisted ont and all hands were saved.

WHITE HOUSE MENDS.
Continued from First Page.
how can I give you .what I have not got? I
have not had one good meal for myself in
It was on one of these occasions that the
servants put iheir heads together and ap
pointed a committee to wait upon Mrs.
Harrison to request that their board be com
muted into a small money allowance, so
tbat they might purchase their food at some
boarding house outside.
It appears that even the steward at the
"White House instead of having ample op
portunities to add handsome commissions to
his regular salary by virtue of handling the
purchases of the household, has never an
opportunity to make a cent in that way. and
it is only by getting in the first whack and
that must be done stealthily if done at ail
that even he can scrape together a decent
meal for himself.
In the absence of a butler the President
keeps no butler atpresent the steward does
the carving what little carving there is to
do at Harrison's table and Madame
Pelouard says that it is only by virtue of
sleight-of-hand that the steward can
MANAGE TO SAVE A MEAL
for himself. For instance, if there are two
or three chickens to carve as there sme
times are, when baby McKee and Dr. Scott
and all the Harrison', Scotts and McKees
are at home the steward may get a chance
whife carving to flip a leg or two up his
sleeve, and, although Mrs. Harrison may
afterward inquire where the missing mem
bers have gone to as she is quite liable to
do there is no bringing them back after
they have once disappeared
But with ail the legerdemain which he
can practice at the table the, steward finds
it necessary to go outside whenever he wan'j
anything like a square meal. Ham ar.d
eggs for breakfast, ham and eggs for dinner,
ham and eggs for supper, is now Mauame
Pelouard, in a general war, describes the
variety of bills of fare at the White House.
The Harrisons never buy any wine of any
kind, and never have any on their table,
whether there are guests present or not.
The only wine that has been ain the "White
House since Harrison came, Madame
Pelouard says, is a few bottles of claret that
MB. CLEVELAND LEFT BEHIND HIM
when he took his departure. Even when
baby McKee's little sister was baptized in
the Blue Boom, a Couple of months ago,
there was nothing stronger than water at
the luncheon that was ordered for 12 and
served to 20.
It is Mrs. Harrison's custom always to
order a meal for just about half as many
persons as are invited. She expects about
IS acceptances, and a meal for 12 she
always believes is good enough to serve for
IS or more in a squeeze.
The menu for the luncheon which was
given when little Mary McKee was bap
tized the only formal meal which has been
served at the White House since Harrison
became President would make a tramp
laugh and thank his stars he was not con
fined to "White House fare.
Marceli Pelouard has learned enough

A TERRIBLE POSSIBILITY.
The public interest in the matter at pres

President Harrison's being brought into

to show cause why he shouldn't pay his ser
The history of tbe United States knows of
the impeachment of a President, but this
will be the first time that a President has
been brought into 'court for violating a con
tract with his cook, and refusing to pay her
the wages due. The case is now in the
hands of the Marquis De Chambrun, the
law agent of the French Government in this

The Rubber Trust Scheme Making- Rapid
Progress Overture Made br British
Capltalliti The Original
rSFZCtll. TEXJOBAM TO Till DISPATCH.
BOSTON, August 8. The Kubber Trust
scheme is making substantial progress, and
English capitalist! are beginning to figure
in the arrangements A few days ago there
was a secret meeting in this city of tbe
Presidents and directors of all leading rub
ber shoe manufacturing companies in
the country, and they did much toward per
fecting the details of the scheme. AtHhis
meeting a representative of English capital
maae overtures tor tne purchase oi one or
more of the large rubber companies.
Said a gentleman who was present at the
meeting: " "The original plan, first out
lined two rears ago, has been dropped. That
provided lor all the rubber shoe manufactur
ing companies, and because some would not
come in on terms satisfactory to the others,
the scheme fell through. It also provided
for a transferor the various properties to be
made to the trust, ata valuation determined
by appraisers who were to base their esti
mates on the business of certain specified
years. This was not satisfactory to some,
because tbe years selected were those in
whice tbey did s .small business, while their
cotemporaries had the bulk of the trade.
All these objectionable features have been
eliminated from the new plan.
"The committee recognizes that it will be
practically impossible to form a rubber
trust embracing all the companies at first;
that it will be impossible to form it by a
transfer of the properties on a basis of valu
ation by any one bnt the stockholders of
each company, and that the trust can prob
ably be organized more readily by including
English capital fo take hold of it than by
any other way. The present plan, there
fore, contemplates a sale of a number of the
rubber shoe companies of tbe countrr, in
block, to asyndicateof English capitalists."
The committee finds that while there is a
strong sentiment in favor of consolidation,
there is almost as strong a one against it.
