ci opinions on the Brotherhood scheme.
PSpecial correspondents send racy baseball
gossip from Cleveland and isew iork.
Manager Jim Jlutrie and his gigantic
baseball champions arrived in the city yes-
l terday aiternoon from Chicago. The team
was accompanied by President J. B. Day.
It is needless to say that from the President
K. down to the most obscure member of the
delegation hopes of again winning the
t League pennant were very hieh. However,
L it was evident that the Giants came here
with considerable retard for the local team,
j. and players and officials alike are wishing they
f were comfortably clear of the city.
"1 expect jou Pittsburers will hustle ns,"
f ca'd Manager Mntrie, "but we hope to beat you
f this time. We are in playinjr humor now, and
f I cuess it will tale u to be if wecetasmany
games as we want here. There is no solt snap
inPittsbnrc. However, I am very hopeful
that we will win the pennant."
President Day talked very frankly and Inter
estingly about the pennant struggle and base
bill affairs generally. He said: "I'll be satis
fied if we cet two games here. I hope we'll
win, and it may he we'll lose two. We have no
certainties against the Pittsburg club, but our
players are all in excellent condition. Of course
C the race for the pennant is a desperate one,
f and this week w ill, indeed, be eventful.
I HOrE AND DESrONDEXCT.
' "One day I think we will win, and then on
r another day it looks as if we would be beaten.
It seems as if Clarkson had lost his grip, and
P if that is so our chances will be brighter. He
s done wonderful work, but human nature
" has its limits."
. Regarding the alleged Brotherhood scheme,
r"v President Day said" "I think the matter has
JJ been talked over by some of the players or per
jr Eons interested in them At any rate. I know
V for certain that efforts have been made to lease
' the Chicago grounds in behalf of a syndicate
'connected with the Brotherhood venture. The
S names of the parties trying to lease the grounds
j are well-known in Chicago, hut so far these
efforts have not been successful. I don't take
much stock In tbe rumor to the effect that
Kew York parties are trying to lease our
, grounds and other new ones."
Continuing, Mr. Day said: "In my opinion
the proposed scheme is too Utopian to ever bo
successful. In the first place those who claim
to be identified with it don't seem to have any
Idea of the amount of money needed to start
snch an enterprise. These parties talk about
giving a guarantee of $2o.000 for each city. This
. estimate is so far belon that which is needed
l that it is ridiculous. But 1 don't think that all
5 the League plajers would connect themselves
t with any such scheme, even were it put into
operation. For instance, I don't know a mem
E Tier tn the New York team who is dissatisfied
r with his treatment or with the management.
This being so tbe players would not leave us
without their positions were improved finan
cially. Thev would naturally require more
xnoneT than they are getting and would demand
a sufficient guarantee for it. Further soil, they
would want a guarantee for more than one
, season; they wonld demand security for several
seasons. Men like Roger Connor would not
run the risk of a new Utopian like venture for
one season; not by any means. Then just con-
i sider the large amount of money that would be
' necessary to give all the guarantees that surely
would be made. Why, it couldn't be done.
v THE SIIABING OF PEOFITS
Idea Is also very misleading. Now let us sup
. pose that the Brotherhood formed a leagne,
and by the most judicious and able manage
ment possible, cleared 100,000. Under the most
favorable circumstances no more than that
could be cleared. Well, the players get half of
that, which would be about S500 each. Now,
will anybody tell me that first-class players now
in the National League would care to run th e
risk of leaving large and sure salaries to join
something extremely uncertain for $500? I'm
certain that the players won't do any such fool
Ish thing, and let me add that it seems certain
there wonld be no profit at all for a time. Play
ers are not playing baseball for charity. They
are in the business as a means of making a
livelihood, and depend upou it, human nature
will prompt them to acton the old principle
that a bird in tbe hand is worth two in the
Mr. Day went on to say that the National
Leagne would certainly aln at s be ready to lis
ten to a statement of real or alleged grievances
of the players. "If there be any," he said,
"they will be discussed bj the League officials
at the annual meeting, and I venture to say
that wherever a unevance is clearly pointed
out it will be remedied so far as the League
can possibly do it."
John M. Ward. President of the Players'
Brotherhood, declined to talk on the matter at
all. He expressed himself to the effect, bow
ever. That if the League refused to remedy the
'grievances under which the plavers labor, the
flatter would take some very definite and lm
aportantstep. This Implies that if tbe plavers
'can have tbe reserve and classification rnles
'modified nothing will be done in the way of
organizing a rival to the League.

Cleveland, O., September 2& While the
New Yorks and Bostons are having a nip-and-tuck
race for first place there is a pretty fight
on: between Cleveland and Pittsburg for fifth
position wbtch attracts about as much atten
tion in this locality as the main scrimmage be
tween the leaders. The way it looks now
Cleveland and Pittsburg are virtually to settle
the chances for tbe pennant. Who would have
thought at the commencement of the season
that the championship was to be thus decided,
or that the spurt on the homeward stretch
would be a race with a double signification, for
first place and for fifth. The home team is In
excellent trim and onght to play as strong or
stronger game at the wlndup than at the com
mencement. None of the pitchers are com
plaining, and the cranks are anticipating a
a great week of sport with Boston and New
Of course the alleged Brotherhood deal Is
attracting much attention here as in all other
League cities, perhaps more because Mr. John
son resides here; and by the way, 1 unwittingly
did Mr. Johnson an injustice in my last letter
to The Dispatch by neglecting to insert a
sheet of my correspondence in my hurry to
catch the matt. The ohpet in question was the
explanation of a scheme reported to mo in
which Mr. Johnson and the Cleveland players
were alleged to be in a speculation to sell their
releases back to League clubs after signing
with Jiira. it was this plan to which I had
reference when I asserted that I did not be
lieve the Cleveland players foolish enough to
trust themselves to a concern managed by AL
Johnson, since it would not only imperil their
prospects but be a lasting disgrace to tbe game
and a stigma upon their reputations personally.
The scheme thus outlined was tnld me by a
bnsom friend of one of the Cleveland players
who I know positively has been foremost in
promulgating Brotherhood doctrine, and who
is one of those individuals, unfortunately, who
does not know when he is well off.
There is more in the scheme of the Brother
hood itself than is generally given credit for.
There is no donbt in my mind that the scheme
has been thoroughly discussed and planned. I
am not so sure that it will go into effect. Noth
ing wonld please me more than to see it tried,
for I think about 130 men would get a lesson
that wonld last them their lifetimes at least.
It is not among tbe improbabilities that the
concessions demanded will be granted the play
ers, and what good will it do them? If they
would take tbe pains to argue on both sides of
the matter they would not be long in finding
Tbe Cleveland players don't seem to be in all
the secrets of the concern. That is, all of them
do not seem to be. There are two or three,
possibly, who are in it up to their ears, and of
all men in the team thev have the least cause
to take such steps. One 'has been next to noth
ing bnt a wooden player all the season, has
brought the club into considerable dis
repute, and has been better treated
in Cleveland than any place he ever played
ball in his life. Tbe other has had so much
Brotherhood on the brain that he has fallen off
in his playing, and is such an ardent admirer of
all the stars of the profession that it wouldn't
take a great deal for him to kneel down and
With the exception of one man, the Cleve

SODEN'S VIEWS OF IT.
He Thinks tho Brotherhood Scheme a Very
ISrXCIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH '.
Boston, September 29. President Soden
doesu't feel at all worried over the .rumored
scheme of tbe baseball brotherhood. "In the
first place." said he, "if the scheme is started
we will hire a club of players and we can find
plenty of players the equals of those at present
playirg in League clubs. They may not have
their reputations, but it won't take long to
work that up. With our grounds and equip
ments we will be able to give as good exhi
bitions as tho Brotherhood. We don't propose
to be run out of the business while we have
money to fight it. The players are simply get
ting themselves in a position where they think
they can dictate terms to the managers of the
League at the national meeting next month.
It's all a big bluff. No business men are going
to invest money in such a riky adventure as
baseball has been, and trust the players them
selves to manage it. These co-operative schemes
always fail and under this new order of things
it wonld be impossible to exercise any discipline
over the players necessary to put them in con
dition and make them play ball."
President Soden didn't believe the report
that Director Conant bad purchased tbe
Omaha club, as he didn't think Conant took
enough stock in the Brotherhood scheme to
make such a move. President Young has no
hesitation in saving that when the annual
meeting of the League is held in November
tbe members of the Brotherhood will he ac
corded a respectful bearing, and honorable,
concessions may be expected on both sides.
This is the idea conveved by a talk with Presi
dent Hewett, of tbe Washingtons. and be has
been in correspondence and personal communi
cation with Messrs. Day, Spalding and Rogers,
all of whom have outlined the same policy.
FROM THE GIANTS HOME.
Excitement About ibe Pennant Race Tbe
ISFECIAL CORBESrONDENCE OF THE DISPATCH.)
New York. September 28. As the Leagne
season nears an end the baseball enthusiasts in
this city become more and more excited over
the closeness of the race. They have not for a
moment lost faith in the champions. The fine
work which they have done after leaving home
has assured the cranks that the team will bring
the flag back with tbem if they are able. It
looked at one time as though ETeefe andWelch
had lost their grip to a certain extent, but tbe
nearness of tbe end of tbe season will serve to
keep them up and spur them on to do better
work. The whole cry, however, is let tho best
The wild story of a league that is to be
formed by the Brotherhood of Baseball Play
ers that was sprung on the public a few days
ago has kept the cranks bnsy for tbe past
week, and they make fun of the story. It is
quite certain that if cuch a league was to be
formed tbe clubs in this city and Brook
lyn would prove a failure at once and would go
under before the league was many days old.
Right on top of the Brotherhood story comes
another that was Just as silly. It was to the
effect that the Boston and Chicago clubs
wanted to buy ont two clubs in a Western
minor league. These sensations don't do the
ballplayers any good, and if tbey have
a band in the circulation of the
stories tbe fact should he made known at
once, and their names placed before the pub
lic As to the Brotherhood clubs in this city
and Brooklyn the story can be put down as
untrue, and the work of some space fiend. As
far as this city is concerned the New York
players are satisfied, and as to Brooklyn, well,
they can put a club over there as soon as thev
like, bnt it won't take one silver quarter out of
the pockets of the managers of the present
Brooklyn club. The whole scheme can be put
down as an advertising dodge. J. H. M.

CHRISTY IS CHAMPIOK.
He Wins the Tennis Championship Cap ot
Tbe last match in the first annual champion
ship tournament of the Pittsburg Tennis Club
was finished on Saturday, thus bringing to a
close the largest and most successful lawn
tennis tournament ever held in Pennsylvania
outside of Philadelphia.
The championship of Western Pennsylvania
was carried off by Mr. Marshall Christy, of
the Sewickloy club, after the most brilliant
and hardest tennis playing ever witnessed in
this vicinity. Mr. Christy, in winning first
"singles," became the possessor for one year of
the beautiful and valuable "challenge cup"
presented by Mr. J. C. Grogan. the jeweler,
the finest trophy ever offered to tennis players
hereabouts. By a misunderstanding Mr.
Christy left for college before the match was
finished, but upon learning that it was still un
decided returned from Princeton, N. J., and
defeating Mr. M. K. Coster won the cup.
When tbe cup is finished it will be on exhi
bition at Mr. Grogan's for a few days.
Messrs. Christy and Woods, of the Sewickley
club, also won the double championship by
winning from Moorhead and Reed, the score
standing 26 games to 24 for the latter team.
This match also was without doubt the most
exciting. From tbe first game to the last
point, every point was fought for, and it was
only decided when the last ball was netted.
Moorhead and Reed won second prize, doubles,
and Robert R. Reed took second prize In
singles, defeating Mr. M. K. Coster in the
final round. Mr. Tbos. Ewing took the consnal
tion prize, a handsome smoking jacket offered
by Jos. Home fc Co.
The next annual tournament of the club will
be held the second week in Inly. 1S90, and as
the college boys will have just returned home,
and in their best form, some great contests
will be seen, especially the fight over the Gro
gan challenge cup.
The last tournament of the season on this
club's grounds is being played off now. this
one being a "mixed" doubles lor tbe benefit of
the lady members.

blocks of ground at Ono Hundred and Fifty
seventh to One Hundred and Fiftv-ninth

Wiman and a number of wealthy and influen
tial gentlemen were behind the scheme. Mr.
Wiman was seen at his charming villa at St.

thing in any possible manner. I have never

The Salvation Army of this place has one
Chinese convert, who takes his shore in the
street exhortations, but has not yet been
promoted to the command of a brass musical
instrument or a bass drum. He is now
faking lessons in English in order to become
more proficient in the language. His
teacher is a young lady, and a (few nights
ago one of her brothers thought he would
play a joke on the Celestial by appearing in
a ghostly form, by wrapping himself in a
sheet and confronting the pupil as he was
on his wav home. The scheme did not
work according to intention, for instead of
tatinc n scare thn Chinaman tackled the
Kghost, exclaiming: "Me catchee one
IBebbil." and proceeded to pummel his
ghostsbip in trne slugging styje.
Some companions of the ghost, who had
secreted themselves to see the fun, then
found it necessary to interfere and save the
joker from further punishment. It is now
understood among these boys that "ghosts
don't go" with Chinamen, at least those
who have enlisted as Christian warriors in
the Army of Salvation. '

TWO SINGULAR EPITAPHS.
Queer Specimens of Tombstone literature
Discovered Out In Colorado.
"I have read of a great many strange
epitaphs and seen some of them," said a
traveler to The Coffee of the Omaha Republi
can, "but there are a few in the cemetery at
Manitou, in Colorado, which are more re
markable and more humorous (for there is
a certain humor about the dead in this
ridiculous world) than anything I have
ever read or seen. Scattered about this
cemetery are quite a number of slabs ot
boards, painted white and lettered by one
hand presumably that of a sexton or some
public official upon whom the duty of bury

had fallen. This official was in his way the
master of a style. Here is the first speci

Baaed on tbe Autstnnt Treasurer's
Fluoroi Tanner and the Court
of Clalmi Made Jt Fir.
rSPICUI. TBLBOBAM TO TH DISPATCH.!
"Washington, September 29. The sur
plus is gone. According to Assistant Sec
retary Batcheller's statement, made several
days since, it had fallen from $107,000,000,
at which pointit stood a yearago, to $40,000,
000. This balance will be practically
wiped out by tbe reports and estimates now
being prepared for submission to
Congress. There are agencies -provided
for by law for ascertaining the
indebtedness ot the United Slates to its citi
zens, which work noiselessly but with
marvelous effect. Chief among these is the
Court of Claims.
Commissioner Tanner was credited
with being the champion "surplus ripper."
He is not. The Court of Claims beats him
'out of sight and does it, too, in entire accord
with the forms of law. i
Tbe Court has before it now Sonthern war
claims for supplies taken by the Union
forces from loyal residents of the South
during the war, amounting to $250,000,000;
French spoliation cases amounting to about
$12,000,000 and snits brought against the
United States under the original
jurisdiction of the Court in which
the amounts claimed aggregate
$20,000,000. Looking the facts straight in
the face, as any business man would do in
figuring on his own affairs, Uncle Sam to
day has no surplus to call his own.

"WASHiNOlON,September29. The fourth
annual report ot Carrol D. "Wright, Com
missioner ofLabor, just issued, is an interest
ing addition to the existing information and
statistics on the subject of labor in America.
The work deals entirely with the qnestion of
working women in large cities. Not the
least important ieature of the volume
is the chapter devoted to tbe
character of working women. Original
investigations were made in Brooklyn,
Buffalo, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland,
Indianapolis, Louisville, Newark, New
Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, Rich
mond, St Xouis and San Francisco. Com
missioner Wright says: "From all that can
be learned one need not hesitate in asserting
that the working women of tbe country are
as honest and as virtuous as any class of
Relative to the condition of the working
women in New York City, the report says:
TWO CHIEF FEATUEE3.
Two features in the conditions ot New York
C3ty so largely affect the working women there
as to dwarf all other considerations the tene
ment house and the influx and concentration
of foreign immigration. The existence of sep
arate home is a rarity, even among the well-to-do
industrial classes. The crowded condition
oC the poor and struggling is beyond
belief, unless actually witnessed. This
brines with it disease, death, im
morality, etc. Tall, rear tenements block
up tbe small air spaces that are insufficient
even for the front, and often a third bouse
stands behind the second. Sewerage is lack
ing or defective, and stenches of all kinds pre
vail in the poorer quarters. The new tenements
are built with more attention to air, light and
cleanliness, and there is a growing movement
toward seenrinc better homes for the working
population. Ground being so dear, rents are
enormous. The necessaries of life are high,
and many of the poor live on tbe refuse of the
A DIFFERENT PICTTJBE.
On the other hand, the comforts of life are
found in the best tenements. Carpets and
clean beds, lace curtains, upholstered furni
ture, pictures piauos and organs are not infre
quent Among the foreign settlers the illiter
acy is very irreat. Ambition to learn English,
however, fills the night schools with eager pu
pils, while the native population is con
tent with ignorance. Working girls born
In New York are alert and worldly
wise rather than well educated, even according
to the standard of the public schools. The
pressure of necessity drives them early into the
workshop. Tbe moral condition of the work
ing women is Influenced for evil by the tene
ment house home in a way too vastfordisenssion
here. One noteworthy cause of immorality is
the taking of men as lodgers for the sake of
extra income: another is the long distances
girls are compelled to traverse after dark,
especially on leaving stores which remain open
till 10 or 11 o'clock on Satnrday night; another
is the crowding of friendless young women to
the metropolis, where they live without home
restraint, suffering every conceivable discom
fort, subject to long periods of idleness, which
they often enter upon
WITH AN EMPTY PUESE.
.Even among the lowest cades, however,
there Is already response to gentle treatment,
and an innate politeness that can spring only
from a kind heart. The truest heroism of life
and conduct was found Deneath rags and dirt.
In dress and bearing the better class of work
ing girls compare favorably with women of
leisure and refinement. Tbe almost Invariable
church contributions, especially among the
foreign population, indicate a steady church
attendance. As respects ventilation, a prop
erly regulated workshop is the exception. The
average room is either stuffy and close,
or hot and close, and even where windows
abound they are seldom opened. Toilet facili

Considering the cost of living, wages are
little. If any, higher in NewYork than in other
cities, though the number of well-paid positions
being greater, chances of promotion are better.

boiler head a id go fast asleep. He would
remain that ' ray until the noise of the fly

yawn and prepare to pull out. The boys in
the train crely did not like this.
"Why can't he stay awake and watch for
signals as we do?" asked one of them one
night, as the long train was on a siding
waiting for the arrival of "No. 6."
"Well, why don't you see that he keeps
awake?" asked the old railroader, who was
in charge of the train.
"I will," Baid the brakeman.
With the assistance oi the other boys he
firmly set the brakes along the train and
then hung a red lantern from tne roof of the
engine cab so that it was hanging in front
of the window just in front of the slumber
These preparations made he put his foot
on the oldfashioned crank whistle and there
was an awful shriek. The engineer jumped
up and saw the red light. Confused for the
moment he thought he was about to run
into the rear end of another train, so he re
versed his engine and jumped into the ditch,
nearly breaking his neck. Of course the
engine did not move a peg. The boys were
all back in the way-car by this time, and

and limped up out of the ditch he thought
he must have been dreaming. However, he
