THE 'WONDERFUL FEAT OF AXTELL
The secret is out at last and it is a startler.
The designs of the National Baseball
.League, deep, dark and daring as thej- are,
have come to lisht in a very singular way.
Doubtless' the eatirc baseball -world will be
startled this morning when this piece of ex
clusive news is read in Tun Dispatch. I
will have to tell the news in the conven
tional way, that is, a third and behind-the-scene
man will have to be interviewed.
Here is the prominent but unknown busi
ness man's statement: "for weeks I've
been trying to unearth the plans of the Xa
tional League; that is the plans by which
they intend to foil the Brotherhood gang.
I have interviewed every player and mag
nate, but could learn nothing from them.
But my efforts have finally been rewarded.
I was down at the W. C. T. U. Con
vention, and bless you, they knew
all about it down there. Here is what
the magnates intend to do: All the high
salaried players will be made gatekeepers and
their places on the diamond will be filled by
the magnates themselves. Of course there is a
big demand on the quiet for Messrs. Nimick
and Young because their remarkable battery
work. 31ns demand is so geucral that tne
various clubs will ballot for the magnates.
This move, I ma say this coup de etat, will kill
all Brotherhood aspirations as dead as a door
nail. But tbee is a double clincher in store.
President Young lias not been eating idle bread
in Washington. He has gotten Congress fixed
and a law Mill be enacted making it a criminal
offense of a very serious nature to organize a
baseball league in opposition to that of the
National League next year. The law will also
provide for the pa; ing of umpires out of the
national surplus, hence there will be an umpire
to accompany each player and watch each
, Wlint Do Yon Think or It f
Sow what do you think ot a revelation of
that kind, gentle reader? I don't believe a
word of it, but its absurdity is no more glaring
than the will-o'-msp stories that have been
forced upon a victimized public during the last
few days. First, we hai e been told that Messrs.
AVard and Day were conjointly conspiring for
the overthrow of the League. Strangely
enough Mr. Ward condescended to emphatically
deny an insane rumor like this. Then we were
told that the best plajers of each club will be
blacklisted because of their prominence in the
Brotherhood. All that 1 have to say is: No
body can reasonably refuse to give the scheme
which 1 have above outlined as much credence
as those that are daily floating around the
country. Bnt to treat the matter seriously
it docs seem as f very many people write and
think the National League as if it was a
body o. absolute idiots who are in perpetual
session. "Th-. League has settled this," and
"the league bas decided on that," are state
ments th 4 greet our eyes every day. I am ex
ceed ly mistaken if the League has been in
feessio for many months, nnd surely nobody
short of idiots would determine on a policy
that concerns the weal or woe of a vast and
wealthy organization by telegraph or letters.
Amid all the st pid talk that has taken place
on the matter, the most sensible and undoubt
edly the truest, is a statement made by Tim
othy Keefe a day or two ago. He stated very
plainly that . brotherhood would determine
on nothing nn ll the annual meeting of the
League was h Id. .Previous to thit meeting, he
stated, the Brotherhood will meet and appoint
a committee to wait on the League
magnates and present a bill of grievances. Jioiv
this is just what men influenced by the good
common sense of daily lite would do; and it is
just what I haveall along contended the ball
players will do. If ever the plajers had en
couragement to do as Keefe has intimated they
will do, they have that encouragement now.
President Day, o' the New York club, is by no
means a lightweight in the arena, and he has
very pointedly declared himself on two of the
great grievances of which the players com
plain. I refer to the classification rule and the
eelling of players. Mr. Day condemns both. A
majority of the magnates may not think as he
does on the selling question, but I venture to
say that almost everybody is convinced that
the classification rule is a nonemty. However,
it is safe to sav that none of us will know defi
nitely what will be done until the annual meet
ing of the League is held. Until then it ma be
that we'll not be able to entirely steer clear of
the many foolish stories that will be placed be
fore the public; but if they are not too absurd
they may provoke a laugh, and a laugh some
times does one good.
The Association Race.
Baseball excitement is undoubtedly on the
ebb for this year. It is J ust about its last stage
as far as contracts are concerned, as Monday
will probably end the American Association
race, and with that ended we have nothing
morel eft. The pennant race of the Association
has not by any means been as desperate and ex
citing as that of the League, yet there is a pos
sibility of the former being very exciting, in
deed, at the finish. Of course it looks as if
Brooklyn would win, hut there is many a slip
between the cup and the lip. This being sc, it
maybe that Von derAhe and his club will
loom up as winners However, I don't think
there is much fear of the St. Louis people com
ing out in the van this time. If they do I will
be very much surprised indeed. The chances
are greatly against them. I don't think that
Brooklyn is a better club than St. Lents; I be
lieve the contrary to be the fact, and when the
latter is beaten the defeat ought to be
a very wholesome lesson to Mr. Von
der Ahe. ,The tact that the St Louis
clnb has held undisputed sway in the
Association for years has had a very injurious
eifect on tbe mind of Mr. V. d. Abe. I have
often thought that he thought a wave of his
hand ought to stop the bark of every dog.
Doubtless he has deemed himself Sir Oracle,
and from time to time became so inflated wifli
a notion of his own importance that he has
brought about his own downfall. One of the
chiet causes of the club's defeat has been the
game of cross purnoses that has been going on
between-Von derAhe and his players. Had
ihe latter been managed right tliev ccrtainlv
could have been far ahead of the 'Brooklyn's
to-day. In all respects the Browns are a better
team than the Brooklyns when each team is at
Its best. However, nnder the circumstance,
we may expect to see the great contest between
Brooklyn and New York. Their games will be
of the greatest local interest as far as the cities
of New York and Brooklyn are concerned, and
if the weather is suitable there will be plcntv
of money made out of the series. Certainly I
expect to see the Giants w in the series.
The Amntenr Flayers.
One of the local events of the week has been
tbe ball games between the East End Athletics
and the Pittsburgh I note the fact as an
event because the Athletics have earned the
County League pennant and, therefore, can
justly be termed the champion amateur club of
Western Pennsylvania. This being so, the
games had for their object a comparison of tbe
amateurs' work with that of the full-fledged
professionals. Beiorc Ihe two games men
tioned were prayed I cftnfess that I was labor
ing under tbe impression that the county cham
pions would make something like a reasonable
stand against tbe National Leaguers. How
eTer, in this I was greatly, I may .say miserably,
disappointed. I never in nivlife saw a more
veritable burlesque on good ball playing than
the two games in question. The amateurs
could neither bat, field nor could they do any
thing else conducive to good ball playing. The
reason of this I cannot tell. Most assuredly
the East End Athletics can play better
ball than they did on Wednesday
and Thursday. However, the games,
I think, will deter the management
of the Pittsburgs from entering into any new
engagements with local amateurs. The latter
may be all right among themselves and may
even be able to put up an apparently good
article of ball, but it Is quite another matter
when they face the strong men of the National
League. We all have heard of Dame Parting
ton, who, with her mop, could sweep to one
side any little pool of water that interfered
with her comfort: bnt when she tried her mop
against the flowing tide of the sea sne was an
utter failure. There is a lesson in this for the
The Local Leagues.
Speaking of tbe amateur ball players suggests
a few words about the local amateur leagues.
Sometime ago I expressed an opinion to tbe
effect that the County League was not as suc
cessful as its promoters and admirers antici
pated. One of tbe causes of lack of success, I
maintained, was the very loose and question
able method of one club in tbe league securing
players from another. Now that tb season is
over I repeat this opinion again and from now on
tbe gentlemen interested in the County League
ought to make up their minds to stop this
evil at all hazards. Most certainly I expect to
see the County League again in existence next
year, but I do no anticipate that it will be
made up of ten clubs. We have bad, I think,
tbe fact demonstrated to us that there are not
sufficient good players, that is, good amateur
players, in tbe neighborhood to Keep ten clubs
going at an interesting pace. I therefore ex-
Sect to see tne numoer reuueeu congiaerauiy.
ut whatever tbe number of clubs may be it is
absolutely necessary that each club should be
protected: that is, players should no be al
lowed under any circumstances to desert one
club in the league to join another.
A Bit Checker Tournament.
Efforts are being made to hold a week's inter
national checker congress or tournament as
soon as convenient, the meeting place to be
New York. The idea seems to be a good one,
and I feel certain that if willing hands
commence to work on it good re
sults will follow. Undoubtedly draught
playing is become more and more
popular and it really contains so manv excel
lent qualities that anything that may be done
to still lurther popularize it should be heartily
encouraged. 1 don't think that anything
oald give the good old game a greater impe
tus than a gathering of all the great "movers"
in the world. I win those ho are interested
in the movement every success, and I believe
they will be successful.
More Fot Sprinting.
The Britishers are making matters lively this
year, as far as foot racing is concerned. If
they are in tbe background in sculling and a
few other things, depend upon it that they
have some very speedy sprinters, and amateurs
at that. The latest achievement is the lower
ing of tbe 200-yard record. This was done re
cently by E. H. Felling at the sports of the
London Athletic Club The 200-yard race was
substituted for the 230-yard contest, so as to
give Felling a chance to lower his own record
of 20 seconas. The result was eminently satis
factory, for after winning his preliminary heat
in 19 4-5 seconds, he carried off the final by a
few inches in tbe still faster time of 19 3-5 sec
onds both records though the value of the
latterach.evement is unfortunately discounted
to some extent by the gale of wind which blew
at the runners' backs a decided contrast to
the trial beat, which was run in a comparative
calm, tbe wind having suddenly dropped as if
by pre arrangement.
Pugilists and Pugilism.
Those who are interested in pugilism may
make up their minds that matters in that
line will be extremely dull this winter. At
least every indication is in this direction,as the
only place where there is opportunity for purse
fighting is at San Francisco. When contests
for purses and receipts are not numerous fistic
encounters will soon die out. At present there
are no prospects of any prominent encounter
in this country. Sullivan is devoting his efforts
toward organizing a combination to make a
tour of the country. In addition to this re
ports state that he is also devoting consider
able time to saloons. However this may be, 1
venture to say, that Sullivan's tour, if he ever
makes it, will not be a bonanza by any means.
He bas missed his golden opportunity. Had
he gone on the road as soon as he left New Or
leans he would have caught the public at a
high degree of excitement regarding pugilism.
Now there is no interest at all in that branch of
sport. It is also true that in many of our
largest cities boxing contests are not allowed.
I said a few lines previous that
there was no prospect of a prominent battle,
but I bad almost forgotten that Jack McAuliffe
is again on deck with a public offer to fight
Jimmy Carroll. It is likely that the California
Athletic Club will offer a purse big enough to
induce a contest between these two light
weights. Tbey would' certainly make a good
battle, bnt it will be soon enough to talk about
a winner when they agree to fight. There is
little or no likelihood of La Blanche tackling
anybody .for some time. He won't readily give
Dempsey another try, and as Jack Fogarty,
like McCaffrey, bas retired, there is no chance
of Fogarty and La Blanche coming together.
Certainly I think that McCaffrev and Fogarty
have done the best thing possible in retiring
from a business that to neither of them has
been very profitable. As I have alreadv re-
marked, there is about only one place where
public glove contests of any financial worth
are allowed, mat means that there is com
paratively little in the pugilistic business now.
Some time ago I remarked that PatFarrell
was thinking of going to San Francisco under
the guidance of John Hallahan. With tbe
present outlook so gloomy for boxers and pu
gilists it might be well for Farrell to leave fistic
affairs alone for a time at least. Pugilists who
are well located at present should bear in mind
that the "boxing boom," which lasted so long,
is spent. There is nothing in the business now,
and won't be until something of an extraordi
nary kind give it a new impetus.
An Interesting Opinion. -
Henry Sampson, probably one of the best
authorities on pugilism in England, makes the
following interesting statement on the modern
sport: "Mention of prize fighting a few lines
back reminds me that I have been of late read
ing in the sporting papers about some extraor
dinary preparations that are being made to
usher in the boxing season with due regard to
its present importance. How much of this
preparation is real, and how much is intended
to humbug a section of the com
munity who appear only too anxious to be
humbugged, I don't presume to say. PHIL
after what has taken place between boxers
and their managers on the one side, and the
dupes of both and the jay division generally on
tbe other, I should as soon expect to grow figs
upon thorns, or onions upon horse chestnuts, as
to find all tbe matches talked about, or even
those that are already in progress, are as genu
ine as they profess to be. Mr. J. Smith, de
spite the extraordinary manner in which he
has failed to f olnl anticipations, seems still to
have no end of friends who have unlimited con
fidence in him, and who are prepared to put
more money down on any one of his trials than
some of the greatest and best among real cham
pions had down in the whole of their encount
ers. The biggest stake Tom Sayers won was
200; in ono of his fights for the belt
only 150 was put down on each side: when
King and Heenan were matched for 2,000, old
ring goers shook their heads and said a thousand
was too much to risk in stake money on any one
man, as such figures were likely to 'lead to men
being bonght over, and, even if this could not be
done, no man but would be overawed by having
so much dependent on his abilities, and would
suffer in consequence. It is more than prob
able that both these views were shown to be
correct by means of this memorable match,
which certainly did more than any other match
that can be mentioned to scotch, or, as it then
seemed, to kill, pugilism in England. Dnnng
the nowaday revival or what has been digni
fied by tbe name of revival an endeavor has
been made to compensate for lack of class by
lavish displays of money. Not only do heavy
men, who only a little while back were but one
degree above dockers, sneer at matches for less
than thousands, but bantams of the bantamest
description won't look at anyone who wants to
fight lor less then his own weight in silver. It
and under exceptional circumstances, 100 a
side, thread-paper little creatures who are not
to be mentioned in the same breath think
nothing less than a monkey is worth going into
The Single Judge System.
The same authority, speaking of a referee
alone deciding a big boxing contest for points,
says: "Honestly, I do not myself believe that
any two professionals can be found both pos
sessed of sufficient confidence in any single
Individual's accurate knowledge, levelheaded
ness and impartiality, to agree to stand or fall
by bis decision, no matter how close the busi
ness at tbe finish might be; If the men them
selves would which again I, say 1 do not be
lieve their backers wouldn't, unless backers
of boxers, once almost akin to devils, have in
tbe course of tbe last few years become but lit
tle lower than the angels. And just as honestly
as I have expressed my belief that the boxers
would not consent to be judged by one man
only, when so much is at stake, so I will here
add that I do not believe any man really quali
fied to occupy the position would dream of oc
cupying it. He would be too keenly alive to
what sort of a task it was that stood before
him. You may now guess what I think of one
or two matches already on the carpet; as one
at least of them is to be carried through In
private, and as the folk who are finding the
prize, which seems almost too big to be given
unless the givers "knew something," are
cracked in favor of one of the combatants, it
looks rather as if tbe other must possess a 20 to
1 on natural chance before under the circs. It
would be worth talcing 20 to 1 about him."
This is a feature of boxing contests that I have
argued a dozen times, and that there is, indeed,
much truth In it.
Hnttetsou and Bnbear.
To-morrow Is theNl&y on which Neil Matter-
son, the Australian, and George Bnbear, the
Englishman, row in best-and-best boats over
the Thames championship course. The contest
will rot, I think, be of much interest to any
body except those directly connected with it
Bnbear can no longer enthuse the Britishers
any more than he can tbe Americans. His past
efforts have been of a kind that prompts one to
care nothing at all about any race that be may
take part in. But whatever may be tbe Inten
tions of the two rowers, I am inclined to
think that Matterson is a trifle better sculler
than Buber for a couple ot miles. If, how
ever, tbe contest is as it ought honestly to be,
and if Bnbear is at his best, he ought to defeat
tbe Australian1 over the Thames course. But
one never can tell what result will follow in
modern boat races. The race in question
reminds me that Searle intends to sail for home
two days after tbe contest takes place. He
stated this Intention recently when down in tbe
North of .England and if he means to carry it
out the offer of the Toronto people will be hi
vain. The Canadians offer a big purse for a
race between O'Connor, Teemer, Searle, Han
Ian and Uaudaur. If such a-contest were to
take place it would be a great affair. But I
doubt if it ever will occur. At any rate, Searlo
has pointedly declared that be has no desire to
come to America.
Axtell's Great Record.
If ever there was a season of trotting and
pacing surprise the one jnst closing is that one.
Not lone ago patrons of the trotting track
were astounded at a 3-year-old record
below 2J4 being made in California,
bnt the extraordinary effort of Axtell
at Terre Haute on Friday simply electrified
the trotting world. A mile in 2.12 and by a 3-year-old
stallion. Why.it is prodigious. Let
nobody talc about trotting growing less in pop
ularity in America after a performance like
that. If anybody needs proot conclusive that
trotting and trotters are growing in popularity
at a very rapid rate, tbe sale of Axtell is that
proof. Just think of it! S1O5.O0O for a 3-year-old
trotting horse. There must, indeed.be mill
ions in the trotting business. Of course, the
Srice is the largest paid for a horse of any
ind. If I am not mistaken Doncaster, the
winner of the English Derby m 1873, was sold
for an extraordinary price, but it was consider
ably short of the amount paid for the wonder
ful Axtell. PBK.GLE.
Fooling the Frenchman.
. FIST CABLE TO TUX DISFATCH.l
London, October 12. Copyright. Dennis
Gallagher, the ex policeman ot Buffalo, who
has some celebrity as a wrestler in America,
tackled a Greek named Piern, who weighed 60
pounds more than he, in Fans this week. Much
to the surprise of the Greek he could not throw
Gallagher. But neither could Gallagher throw
him, and the French sports were disgusted.
Robert Milton, of the figaio, the leading
sporting writer of Pans,sealedthedoom of both
wrestlers in France by reporting them as lying
down on each other for three bours,concluding
as follows: "It is said that Piern and Gallagher
will meet again. Be this as it may. they will
never again meet. Yours truly,
THE HOLDERS' ADVANCE.
Nearly 500 of Them Recelre Reports From
the Shops One Week Allowed for Re
plica From tbe Firms.
A very large meeting of the moldersof
this city was held last evening in Imperial
Hall. rTearly 500 molders were present,
and the meeting was a long and enthusiastic
one. Master Workman Boss presided and
addressed the men, urging them to stand
together for their demand for a 10 per cent
advance. Beports were teceived from 43
shops, and of that number the molders in 39
shops are unanimous for the advance, and
report themselves prepared to stand out to a
man if the advance should be refused.
Only three shops were not represented at
the meeting, but they are not establish
ments which enter into competition with
the general line of molders work. The
principal of these is the molding department
of the "Westinghouse Airbrake Company,
where the men are engaged only in making
the specialties of that firm.
It was reported from several shops that
while no official answer has been received
to the request for an advance made on
October 8, quite reliable information has
come to the men that the firms will accede
to their demand. It is expected by the
men that several favorable replies will be
received within three or four davs. It was
decided that Saturday should be fixed as
the last day ior answers to the demand.
The molders will meet again in Imperial
Hall next Saturday evening to congratulate
those who have won, and to prepare for a
fight in the cases where tbe demand may be
refused. If favorable answers are not re
ceived from any firms by Saturday evening,
it was the decision of the meeting that no
molders should go to work on Monday
morning, October 21.
In spite of the general trend of the meet
ing, there was a large dissatisfied element,
who lelt before the session was conclnded.
The men from the Carnegie mills in Law
renceville are especially lacking in support
of the movement. The large majority of
the men in attendance, however, were con
fident of a successful outcome of their move
ment. MACHINISTS ORGANIZE.
Fittsbnrg Lodge of the Nntlonal Association
Started The Membership Is Already
The machinists met at 81 Fourth avenue
last night and organized Fittsbnrg Lodge of
the National Association. Just 210 members
have already joined, and as there are abont
1,000 machinistsiin the city and they are all
favorably inclined, the promoters feel that
it will not be long before they 'will belong
to the new organization.
The new association was started in At
lanta two years ago, and since then 50
branches have been established in as many
cities. Since Local Assembly 791, K. of
L., became defunct, the machinists in the
city have not been organized, though many
of the members in the new society belonged
to the old assembly. The present associa
tion is conducted independently of the K.
of L. and Federation of Trades. The aims
and objects oflhe National Association of
Machinists are as follows:
1. To build np and refine the educational anft
social qualities of machinists and their rising
generation, and to more thoroughly instruct
them in the increasing improvements in tbrjir
business. 2. To adopt and carry Into effect a
uniform and effective plan of finding employ
ment for the masses of our brothers who are
now spending their bard earnings in searching
for employment 3. To raise a fund by contri
bution from its members for tbe purpose of
relieving the mstressed, sick and afflicted that
maybe among us. 4. We advocate the estab
lishment of a legal apprenticeship system, by
which an apprentice will be bound fyr a term
of not less than four j ears, and a master be
bound to instruct him in all branches of his
trade that is practiced in his shop. 5. That we
are opposed to strikes, and favor the settle
ment of all grievances by arbitration, and we
shall endeavor to create and promote har
monious relations between employes and em
ployers, and that we denounce a ny attempt to
antagonize the interests of labor- and capital.
The officers elected last night are:
Past Master Mechanic, Gijorge "W. Kirk;
Master Machinist, Harry D. Summers; Fore
man, John H. jolliffe; Financial Secretary,
Harvey Beecher: Secretary, K, M. Best; Con
ductor. T. A. Anderson; Chaplain, W. E. Wat

Organizer J. N. Gallagher, of Harris
burg, will be here neVt Saturday night to
install the officers.

"Wheeling, "W. Va., October 12. To
day's game was one of the finest exhibitions
of good ball playing seen in this city for
many a day. About 1,000 people watched
the contest, and the result was uncertain
until the ninth inning was ended.
Pittsbnrg could do nothing with Burkett,
only getting five hits off him.whilehp struck
out 11 men. The home run credited to
Pittsburg in the third was a scratch, as it
would have narrowed down to a two-bagger

The local ball team returned home last even
ing from Wheeling, having won two games
there. Speaking of the little trip Manager
Hanlon said: "We met a good nine on both
days, the nlayers being excellent men who
winter at or near Wheeling. Our club cleared
about $150 on the trip. Burkett, of the Wor
scester club, pitched to-day. and he is a cork
ing good man. He is left handed and a nat
ural ball player. I hear that Indianapolis and
an Association club wants him. I would like
him, but we cannot make any deal yet. He
has not made up his mind as to where he will
play next year."

nail. rSrXCtAI. TELEOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Cincinnati, October 1Z Prevented by legal
authority from announcing a game of Sunday
baseball, the local club has given notice of an
outdoor concert at the park to-morrow after
noon. The gates will be barred at 3 o'clock,
and St Louis and Cincinnati will appear in
"chorus," with Dnryea and Chamberlain, per
haps, as the soloists. Police interference is not
expected. It is too near election for any mod
ern official to interfere with a little thing like
Jireventing a State law, that has been dead so
ong, from being broken once more.
"Der boss" President a little disfigured and
some pounds lighter in weight arrived in town
this morning confident that the pennant could
not escape St. Louis. He saldr "The matter
of tbe championship will probably bs settled
by Tuesday next. Will there be many changes
in my nine next season 7 Well, I don't like to
talk about coming cbanges before tbe present
season closes, of course. It would not be at all
wise to do so. There will be some changes cer
tainly." The Keystones Won.
The Keystones, of this city, defeated the

They Secure That Plaee In the Connty
Lengue by Dentins" Brnddock.
The Braddock Bines were vanquished in the
game yesterday at Braddock by the McKees
port club for second honors in the Connty
League race. Tbe game was very poorly con
tested, the ground being in a very poor condi
tion. The members of the home team were
over confident and made matters worse than
tbey otherwise would have been.
But six innings were played on account of
darkness or it might have resulted differently.
In the third inning Shields bad his finger split,
which proved another setback to the home
nine. He was filling the position behind the
bat, while Killen was occupying the pitcher's
box. At tbe conclusion of the third inning
"Bud" Bennett relieved him.
The McKeesport club hadan'imporied bat
tery Mallory and Patterson, from Bridgeville
which accounts, in a measure for tbe signal
victory they secured. Only three hits were se
cured oil Killen's delivery, while Patterson was
pounded for four, one of which was for two
bases. Ont of tbe six runs secured by the Mc
Keesport team not one of them was earned,
while the only run gotten by tbe Blues was
earned by B. Bennett in tbe last inning.
Cooper, the center fielder for the Blues, fin
ishes the season with the best batting average
of the club's players, thereby winning the gold
chain offered by a well-known jeweler of this
place. The score:

AN EXPENSIVE CHICKEN.
A Lawsuit Abont It Cost a BInn a Life
Interest in a Vnlnnbte Fnrm.
Some lawyers were talking yesterday,
about the pugnacity of some people, which
goes far to sustain the legal profession,
when one of them told of a suit that was
tried in the days when the late Hugh
Fleming was Sheriff. jV man in
Moon townsnip, named mlson, owned
a cock which by some means or
other got on the farm of a neighbor,
named McCormick. "Whether the fowl
got there of his own volition or
in some other way was never definitely as
certained, but be that as it may, Wilson
sued McCormick before a twelfth ward Al
derman and got judgment for $10. McCor
mick appealed the case to court, and there
got a hip-lock on Wilson, throwing him on
his head, legally. The costs in the rase were
$117 by this time, in addition to counsel
fees, which were not small, two prominent
attorneys being engaged. Wilson owned a
life interest in 100 acres of valuable land,
and this was sold at Sheriff's sale to make
tbe costs, and lie lost it absolutely. Subse
quently suit in ejectment was brought to
recover the land, but the plaintiff failed to
The suit was an expensive luxury to both
sides, that one"chicken costing the victor as
much as would have bonght 300 chickens,
while the other party, the one who institnted
it, was ruined.

How an .English Trainer Won the Big
THE PUBLIC AND TALENT DECEIVED
Baceland Defeats Firenzi in a Great Bace
at Jerome Park.
THE WIHD-UP AT WASHIBGT0K.
Winners at the Latonia and Monti Park Eacts
There are some interesting facts abont
how an English trainer kept his young
horse in the dark and easily won the great
Czarwitch race. Baceland defeated Firenzi
in a great struggle at Jerome Park. Wash
ington meeting closed with a big surprise.
London, October 12. Copyright.
The race for the Czarwitch this year was al
most as remarkable as when Sosebery
'landed tbe stakes many years ago, and even
more interesting, as there were two dark
horses that-had been worked so skilfully as
to take in the handicapper and get in aV
featherweights. Both horses were owned
by trainers, Primrose Day rnnning for
Goater and Ingram for Alec Taylor.
The stable got their money on
both horses in the qnietest manner
possible, at odds varying from 68 to 25 to 1
against them. Every effort was made to fog
tbe racing world. Ingram was only taken for
walking exercise each day. The touts, one and
all, swore that he was off and couldn't start,
but the wily Alec used to give his horse train
ing gallops by moonlight and got him into first
class condition. Almost similar tactics were
adopted with Primrose Day, and it was only 43
hours before tbe race that the public had the
faintest notion of the winner's capabilities, and
then there was a rush to invest on him.
The race itself was practically between these
two, bnt Primrose Day, aided by a slight ad
vantage in the weights, came in the easiest of
winners.three longtbs ahead. ,Now the horse
is being backed in earnest for tbe Cambridge
shire, the next of tbe great autumn handi
caps. Tbe enormous sum won this season by the
Duke of Portland received a further addition
by the success of Memoir to-day In the Pren
dergast stakes. The value of that race being
572, his winnings now amount to 72,818 10s,
and adding the amount secured last year, he
is credited with 99,630.
The owner of Signorlna, the 2-year-old filly
who won the Middle Park plate, bas refused
20,000 guineas for her. This is the highest
Erice ever offered here for a 2-year-old. The
uke 6t Portland's Semolina, which was also
considered a flyer, only finished fourth In this
race. Ayeshire, the great horse of last season,
was decisively beaten by comparatively moder
ate horses in the Champion stakes at New
market this week. The critics are severely
blaming the Duke of Portland for starting the
horse when he was evidently out of condition,
and all for such a paltry stake as 800. Aye
shire pulled np lame and seems to have in
jured one of the ligaments of bis leg. He will
now probably be sent to tbe stud.
