President Nimick Signs Jones
and Hess, of Homestead.
About How lo Get a Club to mate
lots of Money.
A Koted Stallion Dead and Great Sale of
Tonng Thoroughbreds.
Bain stopped the home game yesterday.
President "Simick signed Pitcher Jones
and Catcher Hess, of Homestead. Jack
Eowe talked interestingly about baseball
affairs and how to make a good team. The
Xew Yorks went ahead of Boston and took
fiut place in the pennant race. Boston
gets the disputed game at Philadelphia.
Rain prevented the local team from giving
the Cleveland club another sound walloping
yesterday. The home players had their minds
fully made np to play winning ball, and tbey
were in playing humor without any doubt.
However, the Babies were spared the ignominy
ol a sound spanking. They may receive it to
day, and it is also possible that the home play
ers" may not be able to carry out their inten
tions of yesterday.
Another experiment is to be made by the
home club. Yesterday President "Slmlck
sinned the Homestead battery Hess and Jones.
The latter, as is generally known, is a left
handed pitcher, and he displayed his skill very
.satisfactorily yesterday at Xlecreation Park. In
presence of the players he and Hess had a long
trial, and according to the reports of the play
ers the new battery did well. Last evening,
speaking of the matter. JackRowe said:
Jones has a good curve and apparently can
use it with great effect. Hess caught him
well, and it may oe that Jones will make a good
Yesterday afternoon President Ximick re
fused to give the name of the young
pitcher at Philadelphia whom the club
is trying to ccL It is likely that the young man
will be here within a few days, because it is
understood that the club officials are inclined
to try all the good youngsters they can before
the season closes. Nothing lias been done in
the Morns case yet and President Nimlck does
not know whether or not he will be released.
Jack Rowe talked very interestingly about
baseball affairs last evening. Regarding the
championship struggle, he said: "I think New
Fork will win the pennant because they are
stronger in tj le pitcher's box than Boston. The
latter club has only Clarkson to rely on, and he
may break down before the season ends. On
the other hand. New 1 ork has four pitchers
who are doing good work. Kcefe and Welch
are all right, and Crane and O'Day are in ex
cellent form to fill up with. At any rate I
would like to see New York win. I also think
we will beat Indianapolis out. I am so sure of
this that I dare risk a few good cigars on the
"No doubt," continued Mr. Rowe. "the club
has been very disappointing this season, but
the pitchers may not have been to blame. I
think that a good batting team is always a
likely winner. When Detroit was at its best
the good and timely batting was the great cause
of success.
"Almost every time when we could keep the
hits anything like even we won. because every
man in our team was bitting the ball, and hits
could be made when they counted. This is the
great feature of success. I also have another
idea as to the way of putting a profitable ball
team on the field. A club, that is the players,
tliould all be in trood shape at the beginning of
the season. The club that starts out well and
plajs good ball until sav about the 4th of July
will make money. Up to that time baseball en
thusiasm is very strong, and a club that makes
a good showing draws tbe crowds. Cleveland's
team affords proof of this. Tbe players of that
team were all iu good condition to start the
season. Stronger clubs were no.t in their best
form, and hence Cleveland got near the top
and obtained a remarkable prominence.
"As long as the club remained near the top it
made lots of money. There is something neces
sary, however, to get a club into the condition
at the time I name. Tbe players ought to go
where the weather is warm long before the sea
son opens and pla? regularly. Tlie Detroit team
on one occasion went to Macon, Ga., and re
mained two weeks, playing every day, and then
took a tour. When we returned home nobody
could beat us. I maintain that every dollar
spent in this way yields 100 when tbe season
gets fairly opened."
The Phillies Knock Boston Ont or First
Bostos, September 16. The Bostons to-day
hit Boffington for three singles and a double in
the third.aod scored two earned runs, further
scoring being prevented by careless base run
ning. The Phillies made three earned rnns in

The Game Counts.
Washington, September 16. The Board of
Arbitration of tbe National Baseball League,
consisting of Messrs. Brush, of Indianapolis,
Day, or New York, Hewitt, of Washington,
and Rogers, of Philadelphia, to which was re
ferred the question of the legality of the
Boston-Philadelphia game, have decided by a
mail vote that the came is legal and that
Boston should be credited with a victory. This
game was played in Philadelphia, and the dis-
Jute arose, it is said, throngh tbe failure of
ohnston, of the Boston team, to run to first
base after ho had batted iu the winning run.

feat of playing four games in a day, tbe Sioux
City team t inning them all by the following

last; three in the second, and two each in the
International Lencne Games.

Ky. The whole lot, 20 head in all, brought the

mated total sale will foot up to 250,000.
Difficulties Regarding the Billiard Match
Between fcbaeTcrnnd McKennn.
The billiard match between Shaefer and
McKenna is likely to be declared off.
It seems that before Shaefer had protested
against Roche paying 500 for a postponement,
McKenna's man had already received the
money from Roche for his man, and -the
Shaefer party have got to make the best of
that end of it. But now Sbaefer's friends are
endeavoring to let the SoOJ go as forfeit, and
want Jake to give up the match altogether.
They say McKenna is not at all in Shaefer's
class, and for that reason tbe match should
not take Dlace. If McKenna wins Shaefer will
lose his prestige, and they sav it is too bit: a
risk to take with a man of McKenna' s standing.
Tbe outcome of the affair will he watched.

St. John's Views In Boston.
rsrnciAL telegkaii to thx DispATcn.1
Boston, September 16. J. A. St John,
Gaudaur's backer, said to-day to your corres
pondent: "I will have nothing more to do with
boat races in which Teemer is entered. The
decision of Referee Fringle at McKeesport was
rather peculiar, but he had to decide as he
did or have a broken head. Teemer's backer
acknowledged to me that Gaudanr rows
St. John denies that Hamm ran into
Teemer's boar, or that he instructed Hamm
lo foul Teemer. He says Gaudanr will not go
abroad to row searie, as tne irme, nve weeKS, is
not sufficient foe preparations. In conclusion,
St. John said: "Hamm and Gandaur are
fortnnate to have escaped alive from the howl
ing mob at McKeesport."
The decision was not given at McKeesport,
but iu The Dispatch office, where there was
no danger at all of a broken head. Spobting

McKEEsroRT, September 16. John Teemer
will receive his new Ruddock boat Saturday,
and will prepare to row in the Louisville re
gatta, which is to take place October 2. He
will row in this regatta, and will also challenge
Searle. He has no fears of being barred on ac
count of Gaudaur. and does not fear either
that gentleman or the trainer of him. He feels
that he can defeat the St. Louis man at any
time and any place, and would havo done so
Friday but for the circumstances connected
with the race.

Supervising Architect Mnlono's Only Hope
About Fourth Avcnne's Grade.
Superintendent JL L. Maione had a long
interview with Chief Bigelow yesterday
afternoon concerning the grading of Cherry
alley, Third and Fourth avenues around
the new Government buildings. Mr. Maione
gained no new information from Mr. Bigelow,
and he supposes the City Councils would be his
only hope of getting anything done.
Mr. Bigelow said afteiward that Maione bad
shown him a letter from the Washington offi
cials requesting him to secure the assistance of
the Pittsburg officials in getting the grading
done. Mr. Bigelow told him the city must do
the work sooner or later, entirely at her own
expense, but be could not promise when that
would be done. Maione said the Government
would be satisfied if it was done within two or
three -years, but Mr. Bigelow replied that that
was too far ahead for him to give it any con
sideration at present, he having now plenty of
work on hand to keep him bhsy for two years
at least, and probably longer. He advised Mr.
Maione to appeal to Councils if he was in a
hurry about tbe matter, as he bad no authority
to proceed unless ordered by Councils.
Darkness for Three Hours Pervaded Part
of the East End.
Three hours of darkness were experienced
last night in the district lighted by what is
known as the Fifth avenue circuit. That
circuit extends from Atwood street, in Oak
land, ont Fifth avenue to East Liberty, and
also takes in Forbes street. At the hour for
illumination last evening no light emanated
from the electric lamps 111 that circuit. Super
intendent Hoover, of the electric company,
after a three hours' search, discovered that the
wires had been cut at a light on Fifth avenue,
near Boquet street.
Mr. Hoover said that the matter was not an
accident; that the wires had been purposely
cut, and evidently by some "soreheads," as he
termed them, who were concerned in the re
cent strike.
New Yorkers Think n Portion of the Fnnd
Ought 10 Be so Used.
New York, September 16. A. Schwab
called upon Mayor Grant to-day to propose
that statues to Judge Cummin, who died at
Williamsport, Pa recently, and who worked
valiantly in aid of the afflictedpeople in the
flooded districts of Pennsylvania, be erected
with some fcart of the 1,600,000 still in the
hands of Governor Beaver's Relief Committee.
Mayor Grant will probably submit the sug
gestion to the New York Relief Committee.
Mr. Schwab thought statues might be erected
at both Johnstown and Williamsport, as both
of them would probably mot cost more than
The Tree on Which the Man Wns Hanged Is
Now Slowly Dying.
Wheeling, September 16. A telegram from
Lewisburg, Greenbrier county, says the tree
upon which Carter, the negro, was lynched by
the mob from Summers county, about a month
ago, is slowly dying. The limb upon which
Carter was sw ung off is already quite dead.
The matter has created a good deal of a sen
sation among the people, whose excitement is
intensified by tbe fact that the special jury
summoned to ferret out the guilty lynchers is
still hard at work accumulating evidence.

A Fast Express Thrown From tbe Track by
a Misplaced Switch.
The Columbus and Chicago express,
known as No. 3, due out here at 12:05 yes
terday afternoon, ran off the main track at
Colliers, W. Va., 36 miles from Pittsburg
owing, it is said, to a switch being misplaced,
and dashing into No. 7 siding, where were lying
a number of empty gondolas. It made match
wood of the foremost one, the engine being
hurled wheels uppermost down the embank
ment, the baggage car being raised from its
trucks and badly damaged, its contents being
destroyed, and the smoker turned sideways
and partly down the slope.
Fireman John Obey was engaged inputting
on a fire at the time, and he just had time to
become aware of a crash when be, next mo
ment, found himself lying on the rails, escaping
with a few bruises. The engineer, Barney Ban
non, had a similar providential escape, being
tumbled into the bushes and getting off with a
few scratches. It is reported that tbe express
messenger was seriously injured, but on this
head nothing could be definitely learned. The
coaches remained ou the track, and beyond a
pretty severe and general shaking up,
the passengers were uninjured, After a
delay of an hour and a half a relief engine
hauled tbe train into Dennison, whence it
continued Its journey. The point at which the
accident happened was about 300 yards west of
the station where there is no regular switch
man, the trainmen having to look out for the
points. Those who saw the wreck concede
that it is about as bad as ever happened with so
few injuries.
Marie Wainright and her company were on
the train, and at first it was rumored the ac
complished actress was badly hurt. She was in
ono of the Pullman cars, and fortunately es
caped uninjured.
Master Workman Ross is Prepnred for the
Executive Bonrders.
The members of the General Executive
Board of the Knights of Labor, who were
appointed to come here and investigate the
musical muddle will probably arrive in
Pittsburg to-day. Tbey will sit as a court in
K. of L. Hall on Fifth avenue, and will hear
the testimony on both sides of the case..

FOR washing the hair, only the very best of soap and pure water
should be used. The average soap contains too much free
alkali.-which draws the natural oil from the hair and scalp, and leaves
the former harsh and lustreless, while it roughens the latter, causing
scurf or dandruff. The purity and mildness of the Ivory Soap gives
it pre-eminence for cleaning the hair and scalp. It contains no free
alkali, so its use insures a clean and healthy head of hair of the lus
tre and softness of silk.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be " lust as rood as thfi ' Ivory ' : "

The Man Who Killed Judge David S.
Terry Released Under Bonds.
According to Jadce Sawyer, of the U. S.
Circuit Court, Who Says
Counsel Give Notice That They Will Moke an Appeal
to the Supreme Court.
Marshal Nagle, who shot Judge Terry,
has been released by the United States Cir
cuit Court on his own recognizance. Judge
Sawyer, who rendered the decision, states
that Nagle only did his duty and fired none
to6 soon.
San Francisco, September 16. The
announcement that a decision would he
rendered in the habeas corpus of Deputy
Marshal "Single, who shot and killed David
S. Terry last month, drew quite a number
of people to the United States Circuit Court
to-day. Justice Field was present, and
occupied a seat in the jury box. Judge
Sawyer and Judge Sabin were on the bench.
After the decision discharging Nagle was
read, notice ot appeal to the United States
Supreme Court was given by counsel repre
senting the State of California, and Nagle
was released on his own recognizance, the
bonds beine fixed at $5,000.
The decision was very long, and was de
livered by Judge Sawyer. It gives a re
view of the circumstances of the past year,
including threats of Terry and his wile,
which culminated in the recent tragedy at
Lathrop. In commenting on the subject of
jurisdiction, Judge Sawyer says:
no conflict op authority:.
"There is no conflict between authority
of the State and the United States. The
State in such cases is subordinate and Na
tional Government paramount.
He continues: "There can be no doubt
that jurisdiction of the United States is not
affected by reason of location where the
main questions which the Court considers
are, first, was the homicide now in question
committed by the petitioner while acting in
the discharge of the duty imposed upon him
by the Constitution and laws of the United
States, and, second, was the homicide neces
sary, or was it reasonably apparent to the
mind of the petitioner, at the time and
under the circumstances then existing, that
killing was necessary in order to a full and
complete discharge of such duty?"
The Court declares that the Marshal is'
the peace officer; so tar as keeping the peace
in any matter wherein the sovereignty of
the United States is concerned, and he has
all the powersof a Sheriff as to such matters.
The Constitution provides for the Supreme
Court, and gives to the President the power
and duty of seeing that the laws are faith
fully executed. The Court further declares
that only a United States Marshal or his
deputy have performed the duty of protect
ing Judge Field, the use of State police be
ing impracticable, as the powers ot the
Sheriff would have ended at the borders of
his county.
Judge Sawyer states: "After mature
consideration we have reached the conclu
sion that the homicide in question was com
mitted by the petitioner while acting in the
discharge of the duty imposed upon him by
the Constitution and laws of the United
Judge Sawyer says he has seen some ad
verse criticisms to th'e effect that Nagle fired
too quickly, and on this subject the decision
closed as follows: "Nagle, on the scene of
action, facing the party making the mur
derous assault, knowing by personal experi
ence his physical powers and his desperate
character, and by general reputation his
life-long habit of carrying arms, remember
ing the sacred trust committed to his charge.
Nagle in these trying circumstance
was the party to determine when the su
preme moment for actiou had come, and if
he honestly acted with reasonable judgment
and discretion the law justifies him, even if
he erred.
"But who will have the courage to stand
up in the presence of the facts developed by
the testimony in the case and say he fired
the smallest fraction too soon. In his own
judgment he acted under the frying condi
tions surrounding him in good faith, and
with consummate courage, judgment and
discretion. The homicide was, in onr opin
ion, clearly justifiable in law, and, in the
forum of sound, practical common sense, was
Aliened Bnrslnrs Arrested.
Alexander Glemer and Charles Campbell
were arrested yesterday, charged with being
suspicious persons. It is alleged that they are

Allegheny, had for a long time suffered from a
weak, tired feeling, no ambition, pain across
the small of his back and palpitation of the
heart. His complexion was very sallow, and
he had bloating, belching of gas and
distress after eating. He lost flesh , his
memory became poor and hi3 mind be
came so affected that he could neither read nor
think, and was in constant fear of becoming in
sane. He often felt dizzy, and he became so
nervous as to entirely unfit him for any busi
ness. Having read in the papers that tbe
physicians of the PolvDathlc Medical Institute
make a specialty of kidney and urinary diseases
he began treatment with them. His own words
state the result: "This is to certify tbat I have
