MADE A SORRY SHOW
The East End Champions Get
a Terrible Drubbing "
BY THE LEAGUE SLUGGERS.
President Day Explains a Point About
the Club Charters.
JOHNNY WARD SAYS A FEW WOEDS
More Exciting Gaines Among the American
K GEKEEAL BASEBALL KEWS OF THE DAI
The Pittsburg Baseball Club played an
other game with the East End Athletics
and pulverized them. President Day states
why the charter for the New York Ball Club
was applied for. John II. Ward makes a
statement. The Association pennant con
test is still exciting.
It is some time since the baseball patrons
of the East End were treated to such a"bur
lesque of the national game as they were
yesterday afternoon in Liberty Park. The
Pittsburgs again tackled the champions of
the county league, and the work done by
the latter was of such an inferior quality
that to style them champions is a prostration
of the title that can scarcely be defended.
It was thought thatalter Wednesday's game
the East Enders would brace up a little and
show some to'craDly fair work. However, yes
terday's playing was not even np to the stand
ard of 'Wednesday.
Judging from the two games between the
Pittsburgs and the Athletics it would seem
folly to arrange games between the amateurs
and the proiessionals. Of course there are en
gagements already made for games between
tbo home club and county league aggregations
at Braddocfc and McKeesnort. but after these
arep'ayed it ought to be a long time before
any more amateur clubs are asked to face the
HAD SOME STEANGERS.
The East Enders had several "borrowed"
men in their team yesterday. Among the bor
rowed people were: Hutchinson. Blair and
McShannic They did not improve matters.
Gumbert went in to pitch, but was glad to re
tire at the end of the nfth inning. Lauertook
his place and was also thumped hard. The
fielding, with the exception of D. Barrs work,
was ranV. Barr really played excellently and he
promises to develop into a first-class outfielder.
The Pittsburg played extremely loose and
careless and evidently gave the people to un
derstand that ball playing wasn't altogether a
luxury. Sowders pitched "a good game. The
amateurs made a lively start and looked as If
they were going to have things pretty much
their .own way. However, the third inning
settled everything in this respect.
During the game there were lots of fun.
GOT GUSIBEKT'S SIGNS.
Before the second inning was over Miller,
Dunlap and Beckley got "onto" Gumbert's
signs and they coached every batter that went
to the place. As a result 11 good hits were
made. netting 12 run. aided by some errors.
In the fourth inning Fields knocked the ball
over the left field fence for a home run. Hits,
errors and bases on balls got all the Pittsburgs
runs in. At times the amateurs were kept
rnnnmg about the nark as If they were being
chased by tigers. However, it is to bo hoped
the Pittsburgs and tbe Atbletics will not meet
again until tbe East Enders are capable of
doing better work.
Tbe game was called at tin end of the first
half ot tbe seventh Inning and tbe game went
back to even innings. Following Is the score:

EwiDg's weak pitching, and fine batting by the

strong game, and Milligan was a good back
stop. Robinson's errors were not excusable.

A TALK WITH WARD.
Johnny States That the Association Players
Have No Scheme.
Philadelphia, October 10. Ward, tbe
well-known short stop of tbe New York club
and President of the American Brotherhood of
Ball Players, was seen at the Continental Hotel
this afternoon by a reporter. He refused to
say anything about the alleged scheme of the
Brotherhood, but stated tbat if (with great
emphasis on the if) anything did come of it the
American Association players would not be
touched, and that all statements of Association
players to the contrary were made, so far as he
could judge, to produce beneficial results to
themselves only. Ward said tbat tbe letter
from him, the signature of which Arlle Latham
bad shown to a correspondent, was a letter di
rected to W.L. Latham. When Ward received
a letter from W. L. Latham he wrote asking if
W. h. Latham was Arlie Latham. He received
in reply a letter stating tbat tbe first letter was
from tbe only and original Artie, which he then
He refused to state the nature of the com
munication, but said that it was on perfectly
legitimate business. In answer to an inquiry
Ward said he thought that St. Louis would win
tbe American Association championship, and
that New York would win the world's series
without trouble. President John B. Day, of
the New York club, says only enongh games
will be played in the world's series to give one
club a majority of the series. Eleven games
will be scheduled, and Ward says New York
will have won the requisite six when not more
than nine have been played.
PRESIDENT DAY EXPLAINS.
He Says the New Charter is to Protect the
New York, October 10. A stir was made in
baseball circles this moraine when the fact be
came known that two New York baseball clubs
had been incorporated at Albany within the
past week, each club having for its incorpora
tors an entirely different set of men. It ap
peared as though Gothamites were to be di
vided into hostile factions by having two rival
clubs bearing tbe same name and each claim
ins to be the champions of the world.
President Day, of the New York club, when
asked this morning concerning the dual incor
poration of "The New York Baseball Club"
said: "I was fully iwarp of tbe first incorpora
tion, but was not named as one of the directors,
because I was not here to sign the papers. The
first incorporation was tbat of The New York
Baseball Club.1 Tbe second was The New
York Ball Club.' Both incorporations are for
the Giants, and both were made merely to
guard against any other than our club playing
under that name."
A Tie Game at Wheeling.

Wheeling, October Ml Wheeling started
nicely to-day, but the Phillies pulled up and
got in 11 runs. Then they pnt Mr. Anderson in
the box in the eighth and in the ninth he gave
four men bases on balls which, with Hallman's
errors, Westlake's hit, White's double and
George's home run, the latter two hits being
made off Sanders, brought in 8 runs and tied
the score amid the wildest excitement. The
Phillies had to leave to catch a train and tne

THE LUCKY CAPTAIN.

M'LADGHLIS'S NABROW ESCAPE.
Kingston and Cracksman Ban an Exciting
PAST PACING AT TEKRE HAUTE EACES.
'Winners at Latonia, Jerome and Washington Local
Captain S. S. Brown's Buddhist won a
great race, after an exciting accident, at
Morris Park. Kingston and Craftsman
ran a dead heat. There was some very fast
pacing and trotting at Terre Haute. The
races at Jerome Park, Latonia and "Wash
ington were good.
Morris Park, October 10. The real sport
of to-day's meeting occurred in tbe second race
when Cracksman and Kingston ran a dead heat
for the $1,000 purse. It was claimed by many
that Cracksman repeatedly bumped against
Kingston in tbe final quarter. It was a mag
nificent struggle. Buddhist, witb Jimmie Mc
Laughlin up, was backed ofl tbe boards for the
protectory stakes, and as one of the crowd ex
pressed it, "Captain Brown had a bar'l of
money on him." What might have been a eerl
ons accident happened to McLaughlin as be
cantered past the stand. When a few feet be
yond the stand, and just as he was preparing to
turn about to go to tho post, Buddhist stumbled
and McLaughlin went over his head and
landed squarelv on his back on tbe ground.
Tbe horse jogged leisurely down tbe track,
McLaughlin arose to his feet and with some
assistance limped painfully down tbe track to
the paddock. After a short delay he re
mounted and went to the post. He landed
Buddhist a n inner by a good margin, and was
again handsomely applauded.

The dav was perfect and attendance large. To

GLASS WOULDN'T SHOOT.
He Declined to Contest Against Captain Mc
Clara In Their OIntch.
The proposed shooting match between
Charles Glass, of New Castle, and Captain Q.
A. McClure, which was underlined to take
place yesterday at Squirrel Hill, fell through.
About 200 people were assembled to see the
contest, but Mr.Qlass objected to the Captain's
birds, claiming they had been tampered. This
excuse was strong enough to prevent Mr. Glass
from shooting. Tbe Captain shot one bird and
was awarded the match and stakes, $100 aside.
Captain McClnre's friends state emphatically
that his birds were all right and had been sent
by gentlemen who supply birds to almost every
big contest in tbe country. Their tails, as usual,
at ere slightly cut, but this is invariably done
when birds are sent in boxes. It is claimed tbat
Mr. Glass thought he had a task in hand tbat
was too difficult for biro. One of his backers
offered him $3 it he would contest. An exhibi
tion contest took place between Captain Mc
Clure, Cbarles Ricbardson and J. P. Andrews.
Tbe two first named won by each killing ten
straight. Mr. Andrews killed nine.

The Delegates to the International
PAY A VISIT TO YALE COLLEGE,
And Also Inspect a Number of the New
ANOTHBE BANQUET IN THE EYENING.
An Original Scheme Proposed by a Member From the
The delegates to the International Con
gress are continuing their tour of inspection
throughout New England. Yesterday they
visited Yale College and other points of in
terest in Connecticut
New Haven-, Conn., October 10. Soon
after the excursion party returned to the
train last night, in Hartford, the rain began
j to tall, and a steady down pour lasted until
'the cars started for Collinsrille at 7:30
o'clock this morning. "When that place
was reached the rain ceased. The sun made
its appearance, and the quarter oi a mile
walk through the fresh country lane run
ning from the station to the works of the
Collius' Edge Tool Company was enjoyed
by the party.
As time pressed it was necessary to make
the visit too short to afford a proper oppor
tunity for a complete understanding of the
complicated processes through which the
steel passes from the ingot to the shining
broad-ax or slender machette, and the South
and Central Americans saw for tbe first time
how the bush-hookr and machettes with
which they are so familiar are produced,
and learned with surprise that one-half of
the 600 employes engaged in these works
were making Spanish azes and tools for
shipment to South and Central America.
PRESENTED WITH KNIVES.
After the inspection of the works the
visitors were presented with souvenirs con
sisting of metallic pincushions of oxidized
silver and with murderous-looking bowie
knives. At 10 o'clock the train was again
boarded, and the party started for Meriden,
which was reached at 11:30.
Mayor "Wallace, at the head of the de
ception Committee, led the party from the
train to the works of the Meriden Britannia
Company, where the evolution of plated
ware from blocks of white metal to the fin
ished prodnct was witnessed. At the hnge
brass mill the party saw the workmen pro
ducing 1,000 hanging lamps per day, and
later were taken to the Meriden Opera
House, where there was a display of goods
which had been manufactured in the town.
The range of goods comprised hand coffee
grinders, exquisite onyx and brass goods,
iron vises, bronze clocks, iron screws, har
ness goods, pianos, cut glass, gnns and rues.
Many of the business interests distributed
price catalogues with trade discounts plainly
printed, and these were eagerly taken by
the delegates from the South.
WELCOME AT NETtf-HAVEN.
At 10:30 o'clock places were resumed on
the train and at 2 p. M. New Haven was
reached. Mayor Peck and a committee re
ceived the party. Thirty-eight carriages
conveyed the delegates from the depot ont
from the city and up to the top of East
Bock, which 'is beine laid out by New
Haven as a park. Here the foreign visitors'
saw the finest sweep of American scenery
that has yet greeted them.
Descending again into the city, the Yale
College buildings were visited. In the old
library hall President Dwight briefly wel
comed tbe visitors. He said it was well
that they should be received in that place.
The university represented the universal
brotherhood of mankind.
Education and religion made all peoples
one. He weicomed the Southerners as
friends. They were strangers in their coun
tries, in their language, and, in somv de
gree, in their customs. Bat the freedom
which embraced the peoples of the "WFestern
Hemisphere made all men fellows and
brothers in freedom. Each memberof the
party was introduced to President Dwight,
and all were then driven to the train to pre
pare for the Chamber ot Commerce banquet
At the banquet this evening President
Dowell, of the Chamber of Comvnerce, pre
sided. After an address of vrelcome in
Spanish by Prof. Knapp, of Yale, ex-Senator
Henderson responded for the Con
gressional delegates. He strongly urged
that after the Congress should ad
journ, one of the new wr.r ships be
loaded witn tne goods ot our nation
and sent South to be unloaded among the
merchants there, that they might see the
goods and learn the prices, and be convinced
that reciprocal trade would be well for them
and for us. That would lie what a Yankee
would call business, and he (the speaker)
professed to be a man of business. (Ap
plause. President Dwight, of iYale, next spoke
briefly He dwelt upon 'the relation of the
university to the people, and welcomed the
delegates as a citizen of Connecticut and a
citizen of the United States. t Delegate
Calderon, of Columbia, in Spanish, ex
pressed tbe cood will of his people to the
United States, and his hope for closer re
lations. Tbe gnests were then driven to their train,

C, Frick, Chairman, were yesterday posted
throughout the works. The appointment
was a great surprise to many of the em

expressed at the fact that the new Superin

The Yearly Chancre In Time of Tarns Not

A great deal of dissatisfaction exists
among the pnddlers of those mills suffering
by the shortage in the gas supply, by reason
of the change in the time ot the turns. As
yet nothing has been said with- regard to
what the men will do in the premises. In
some quarters the kick is likened to that
which occurred last year from the same
cause, and though the pnddlers then ac
cepted the temporary change without ex
hibiting any disposition to make a question
of it, it is more than hinted now that those
concerned are averse to accepting the change
as a yearly occurring affair. Though this
is the view taken by a prominent official of
an organization, elsewhere it is held that
the pnddlers will put up with the alteration
in the time rather than throw themselves
out of work by walking out.
LOW BLACES EAIDED,
Tho Police Cleaning Oat the Nest Near tbe
Inspector MfcAleese, Captain Silvius, De
tective Fitzgerald and Officer Moran yester
day raided the establishment of Henry
Bowman atiNo. 117 Liberty street, captur
ing Bowman, two men and two women.
They gave their names as Adam Long,
Mollie Bennett, Julius Kinfeld and Annie
In addition to this raid the inspector
notified "-'Italian Dan," who keeps a place
at No. JJ.57, Jennie Huntsman, at No. 1163,
and Cailie Lyons, at 1155, to vacate their
houses, within 24 hours or he would arrest
the proprietors and all their inmates.
Tbj Inspector says the row of houses from
1147 to 1157 Liberty street has been one of
the rorst nests in the city, and he has se
cured evidence enough to convict everv one
of -he parties mentioned above for illegal
liquor selling, and keeping disorderly
houses. Bowman is the only one against
Trhom such charges have been entered, but
the others will be treated to the same dose if
they are found in the houses this afternoon.

is located n reported to be tbe property of a
well-known business man, and the police

sponsible. Some quite respeotable families
are living in the buildings and they, of
course, will not be disturbed.

20,000 to-night to witness the races by natural

before presented on a race course. The 20-foot
stand pipes at short intervals encircled the
halt-mile track, and dotted the entire grounds
with iarper stand pips within the track. A

He was brutally bit-on the head with clubs.
and left for dead in a ditch where the ne
groes were working at the time. He has 30
stitches in his scalp where it was torn open
by the blows. The fact that he is alive
seems a miracle.
Strong, healthy H. A. Jones has his face
scarred with ugly cuts and bruises, and his
scalp has likewise been sewed up in many
places. He is a young man about 35 whose
people live in Baltimore. He was attacked
by the rioters while attempting to arrest one
ot tne ringleaders under orders from Dr.
Smith. He was knocked down by tbe mob,
and stamped' upon, kicked and beaten
and nearly clubbed to death. Dr. Smith,
in giving his account of the riot, said:
HO "WAHNING GIVEN.
"We had no warning of the outbreak what
ever, we did. not even suspect It, There are
137 negroes employed in the phosphate mines.
and they were all sent there from the city of
Baltimore. The worst element of them were
ship bands who had been arrested for desertion
and other offenses and sent there bvthe United
States Shipping Commissidner instead of being
sent to jail, so you can see that they were a
pretty bard Uasa of men and up to all kinds of
viciousness anu uevuiry wnen tue opportunity
if they bad been unsophisticated natives of
that region it might bave been an easy matter
to subdue them. but. being colored laborers
picked up m an American city, they were an
entirely ainerent class to aeai witn. mere are
no natives on tbe Island of Navasso. It is en
tirely barren. The bouse we took refuge in
when the attack was made was no protection
whatever from bullets. The doors were only
maae oi mosquito netting ana ine wans were a
mere shell of thin boards.
Before weot into the house I fired into tho
mob that baor Jones on the ground, and hit one
of them. They -concealed themselves behind
trees and stones, so tbat our fire bad little ef
fect on them. "The dynamite bombs tbey threw
weighed a pound apiece, and I snppose the only
reason the building was not shattered to pieces
was because they were thrown on the piazza
Instead of under it.
THE. LITTXE JAETT.
There were, 11 of us, comprising the white
officers of the company. When we were com
pelled to abandon our shelter to escape being
blown to pieces by the blasting, cartridges, we
made a rash, but the blacks gathered around
ns and closed In upon us, using knives, clubs
and revolvers. The men who fell were Thomas
N. Foster. Joseph Fales and William T. Shea.
The blacks literal! v butchered them with
knives and clubs. Mr. Foster was the Superin-
We reached a small bouse, in which we hid
for safety for the time, and in tbe interval the
negroes ransacked and pillaged the Superin
tendent's house in which we first took shelter.
The shooting of. James Mahon was one of the
most bloodthirsty acts of the day. The negroes
came to our hiding- place and promised us
safety from attack if we came to supper. We
came ont and found that some of the negroes
were disposed to intercede for us.
wemarcnea aiocgin Indian sie, when one
of the villainous blacks known as George S.
Key, stopped And used a revolver within six
inches of Mabon's face, the ball going tbron-b
his cheek- As he fell the fiend fired another
bullet Into Mabon's back, which pierced his
heart. Jones felt tbat bis .time had come, but
if it had been tbe negro's intention to shoot
Jones, something caused him to bPSitate and
the man's life was spared. An English vessel
was lying ofl the coast but heavy storms were
prevailing and we had no means of communi
cating with her
I, however, got a note to the captain, and he
sailed to Jamaica and sent the British man-of-war
to our assistance. When the vessel came
to the island the negroes were thoroughly
frightened. A part of them were still thirst
ing to finish the job. by killing those of us who
had survived. The captain of the Forward got
his galling guns ready for service and threat
ened to shell the Island nnless every man of ns
was turned over In safety. We were taken
aboard tbe vessel on Thursday; after being in
imminent peril of our lives since tbe previous
Saturday, when tbe insurrection took place.
As we ascended the steps up the side of the
vessel the officers paid us tbe compliment of
hanging the American flag over tbe side. We
were treated royally by tbe officers of tbe man-of-war.
He took us to Kingston, where we
were taken to a club-house and entertained as
if we were distinguished people, and put safely
aboard tbe steamer Dorian, destined to this
port. We bave been treated like princes from
tbe moment of our rescue by the English
cruiser. There was only one sad accident to
mar the jdy of our rescue. Samnel March, one
of onr men. Who had his head frightfully cut
and brnised, died on tbe Forward on tbe way to
