Braddock's Delegation Slmt
Out l)y the Home Team.
Byrne's Team Gets the American
Association Pennant.
Some Interesting Bacini on Latonia and
Jerome Tark Tracks.
The Braddock Blues, of the County
league, tackled the home team and got
whitewashed. The Brooklyn ball club
wins the American Association pennant.
Mark Baldwin leaves the box because of
bad support. There was some interesting
racing at Latonia and Jerome Park.
The Braddock Blues, of the County
league, tried their hands -with the Pitts
burg ball team yesterday at Recreation
Park. The Blues were beaten, of course,
but taking everything into consideration
they made a very respectable stand against
the National League representatives. If
the first inning could be excluded It could safe
ly be said that worse playing has been seen at
the park than was seen jesterday.
But there is little or nothing to attract in a
game between a team like the Fittsburjrs and a
local amateur aggregation. The foregone con
clusion of victory takes all interest out of the
contest There is so litt'o tocompare between
the two teams that comparisons would be ridic
ulous. However, the fact that the Pittsburgs
are going to go through the list of tho four
best clubs in the County leagne it will be of In
terest to see how each of the four fares with
the professionals. Taking this view of the
week's series there probably will be some good
result from the games.
-It is always unfair, at any rate ungenerous,
to criticise amateurs severely. A little advice
now and then may be in place, but a player who
is a player without being paid for it ought to
escape much fault finding. However, it caD be
conscientiously said that the work of the Blues
jesterday was a great improvement on that of
the East End Athletics when they faced the
rmsburcs last week; indeed, judging of tho
work of tho two teams as seen against the
Pittsburgs, it seems strange that the Blues
should have to play second fiddle to the
East Enders. The Braddocks are good
fielders, and in Gordon they had quite
an effective pitcher yesterday. Killen,
however, was not a success as a catcher, and he
undoubtedly caused Gordon to make several
wild pitches. With a good catcher and plenty
of practice Gordon ought to make quite a use
ful man in the box Shields is not a bad short
stop by any means, bnt bis failing seems to be
in handling grounders. Cooper is a good
fielder. Bnt the weak spot of the Blues is their
batting if yesterday's work means anything.
They are fearfully weak at the bat, and if they
were strengthened there they will be a tolerably
fair team.
The Pittsburgs played without much exer
tion. The weather was too cold and there were
not more than 20 people present to shiver. Thn
game was called just after the soventh inning
had been started. The first inning was a settler,
as four runs were made on Kuehne's triple to
right, Rove's singled to left, three passed balls,
two bases on balls and five wild pitches.
After that Gordon settled down and struck the
next two men out and the third went out on a
fly to Shields. Gordon pitched well and not a
run was made until the sixth, when Sunday led
off with a scratch hit, stole second and scored
on Dnnlap's sacrifice and Hess' singles. A
wild throw bv Killen and another by W. Ben
nett allowed Hess to score. The seventh in
ning was started and Fields made a single to
middle and stole second. He scored on White's
double to left, and When Sunday was at bat
Killen was hit on the shoulder by a foul tip.
He complained of the blow and the game was
called. The Blues could do nothing w ith Maul
and they only had two men at first, one of
whom reached second. Following is the score:

Thcr Defeat the Cincinnati Beds in an Ex
citing Contest.
Cincinnati, October 14. The Cincinnatis
gave the St. Louis a hard fight for to-day's
game up to the sixth inning, when Mullano was
touched up for a double and two sincles, which
gave the visitors a couple of earned runs and a
winning lead. "Silver" King pitched for tho
Browns and did magnificent work, as he did
not send a man to base on balls and had eight
strike outs to his credit. Heckcr favored St.
Louis in his umpiring. Mccarty's magnificent
catch of Holliday's terrific hit and the fielding
of Duffee wero the features. Score: .

Short Game.
Philadelphia, October It The Athletic
and Baltimore clubs played a five-inning game
here this afternoon before 78 paying spectators.
The visitors were averse to flaying, but as the
Athletic management had made arrangements
to play off three postponed games with Bt
Louis they did not earn to take chances on
Baltimore insistinc upon its claim fer the next
open date, McMahon pitched an effective game
and was well supported, while Cunningham
was hit hard and his support was indifferent.

Bad Weather Mars the Races at Je
rome Park.
Race Track, Jerome Pake, October 14.
This was a blue Monday with a vengeance at
this track. There were less than LOW persons
in attendance. The feminine race-goers were
huddled together in the stand and the men
sought the protection of the betting paddock.
The sloppy condition of the track caused
wholesale withdrawals, and resulted in com
paratively small fields.

Deception, Bill Barnes.
The jockevs guyed the starter, J. B. Ferguson,
and acted disgracefully towards blm. Finally he
became so indignant because of their condnct that
he cast the flag in front of the starting post while
the horses were strung out for nearly a hundred
yards. The start was. of course, illegal and had to
be made over again. Deception came In first in
the technical breakaway, but Beinnd won the
legal race, with Letretla second and Fleve third.
Time im.
The contest was finished while it was almost
dark, and there was no lack of excitement among
the spectators. It is understood that the Execu
tle Committee will take action against some of
the Jockeys to-morrow. Starter Ferguson dis
charged two of his assistants.

An Opinion na to the Postponed Association
Championship Contest".
Kansas City, October 14. When Attorney
L, C. Kranthoff was asked to-night to give an
opinion on the question of the exten
sion of the Association season he
qnickly replied that there could be but
one opinion on that subject. The constitution
ot the American Association, he said, provides
that the regular season shall close on a fixed
date, that after such date there shall be
allowed a limited number of days for playing
off postponed championship games.
At the meeting in Cincinnati October 15. 16
and 17 were fixed upon as the days upon which
such games could be played. Any f-ames played
upon those dates must be as legal as regularly
scheduled championship games. In regard to
disputed games Mr. Kranthoff declined to ex
press an opinion.

A Mississippi Murder Case Settled Ontsldo
bf the Coart Boom Two Men
Killed and an Innocent
Bxstnndcr Badly
Nicholson, Miss., October 14. There
occurred here vo-day a fatal affray, resulting
in the death of Dr. TV. Jr. Tett, of this
place, and F. C. Collins, of Lacey, Miss.,
and the severe wounding of Quitman
Perton. Dr. Tett is the same person
charged with complicity in the Osyka
tragedy of last year, in which druggist
"Vamodo was assassinated. Dr. Tett was
under bond to appear before H. W. Stock
still, Justice of the Peace, to-day. Collins
and J. "W. Turner were, summoned as wit
nesses against Dr. Tett He (Tett) had
some angry words with Collins. About 12
o'clock, shortly after the case against Tett
had been called and dismissed for lack of an
affidavit, loud words, proceeding from Col
lins, near the Conrt House, were heard.
Tett left the Court House, proceeded to
his home and was presently seen advancing
rapidly up the street toward the door of the
Court House with a double-barreled shot
gun in his hand. Collins stood near the
door and Turner in the group of bystanders.
Turner and another friend called to Collins
to go into the house, but Collins faced Tett
at the foot of the steps. Just as some one
tried to drag him out of danger Tett fired a
load of buckshot into Collins' face, killing
him instantly. Some of the shot took effect
in the back of Quitman Perton, an innocent
bystander, who had not time to get out of
the way.
Tett emptied his second barrel in the
body of Collins as he lay at the foot of the
steps. Turner, seeing 'his brother-in-law,
Collins, fall at the steps, ran to a window
and opened fire on Tett with his pistol. A
pistol duel between Turner and Tett en
sued, Tett retiring as he fired. Tett re
ceived one pistol ball in the breast and one
in the back just below the ribs, both balls
passing through him. He lived about
three hours. Perton is doing well.

He Goes to Washington to Help Gen

Matbon" Stanley is Anxious to Settle the
Post office Fight Here.
A Flan to Mate Frank Case Postmaster Causes a
General Flutter.
Senator Quay has gone to "Washington to
spend the winter. He leaves primarily so
early in the season to help out Mahone in
Virginia, who is struggling bard against
fate and Southern Democrats. The Senator
is anxious to have the Case postmastership
fight settled at once.
Senator M. S. Quay had the Pennsyl
vania limited stopped at Beaver Falls last
Sunday night, and he then boarded it,
bound for Washington. His presence upon
the train was not discovered at the Union
station, and the junior Senator escaped run
ning the reportorial gantlet, peaceably
continuing his journey to Washington,
where he arrived yesterday morning, driv
ing immediately to his new home, No. 1829
I street, whither his family had preceded
him ten days previously.
Senator Quay will be no more seen at
Beaver during the coming winter. He will
definitely remain in Washington from this
time on. The boys who want to see him
will have to make a more lengthy pilgrim
age than from Pittsburg to Beaver.
His early presence at Washington is sig.
nificant in more ways than one. The Na
tional Bepublican'Committee is taking a
most active part in the pending fight in the
Old Dominion. The battle is one of the
fiercest in the checkered political history of
that State, and it is known that General
Mahone has sent up a Macedonian cry which
could not be disregarded. In the culmina
tion of the campaign it will be the mailed
hand of the National Republican Chair
man which will direct the onslaught upon
the Democratic cohorts.
Senator Quay is to throw oil upon the
troubled Republican waters also, and he
has it in his power to bring the recalcitrants
into camp. Although in Washington, he
will assume personal charge of the Virginia
campaign, and all the potent arguments
which wrested the crown of victory in last
November from a sanguine Democratic ad
ministration will be made nse of during the
next three weeks to break the solid South.
It is recognized by the National Committee
that Mahone's victory will be the most
crushing blow to Southern Democracy that
could be devised. Senator Quajr remarked
at the Union depot to a friend who
met him by apppointment that "he thought
General Mahone would be elected." This
quiet confidence in the result of the Vir
ginia fight speaks volumes. Through the
registered bond plan devised by Senator
Quay, the National .Committee is not with
out the sinews of war.
Senator Quay will also keep a weather
eye upon the Pittsburg postoffice fight.
Certain Pittsburg gentlemen have recently
placed themselves on record in the archives
ot the Postoffice Department as being in
favor of continuing Postmaster Larkin in
office ,un til the last moment of bis commis
sion time. This makes the Senator very
He believes in settling the contest with
but little further delay. The originators of
a plan by which the supposed deadlock be

Frank P. Case appears as a compromise

bushels of telegrams to Washington. .
Several gentlemen rode from Beaver to
Pittsburg with the Beaver statesman. The
latter asked many minute questions in re
gard to Allegheny county politics. He
wanted to know whether there was any truth
in the report that certain friends of Major
Montooth were languishing to have him
withdrawn from the Gubernatorial race in
order that the Hastings boom might be
decently espoused by the aforesaid friends.
To this question various answers were "re
turned. Several other matters were talked
ot, but Senator Quay is famous for asking
quantities of questions and answering very
But to all interrogations as to status of

Because of the Acquittal of n Peer Charged
With a borious Offense.
London, October 14. The scene in the
courtroom at Dumfries to-day when the jury
in the case of the Earl of Galloway, charged
with misbehavior "toward girls of tender
years, brought in a verdict of acquittal was
one rarely witnessed in a criminal court in
this country. The guilt of the accused
seemed so clearly established by such evi
dence as was allowed to filter through the
objections of the six eminent counsel for the
defense, that those present in the courtroom,
many of whom were iriends and relatives of
little girls whom the aged nobleman was
charged with abusing, took no pains to con
ceal their disgust with the verdict.
The announcement of the verdict was the
signal for loud expressions of disapproval
from the benches where the spectators were
seated, and the frowns and threats of the
presiding judge were of no avail to sup
press the cries of "shame" uttered by
dozens of indignant persons. In London
the news of the verdict was received with
great indignation among the common
people, and it is poiutedout that had the ac
cused been anything but a great nobleman
the evidence brought out would have been
sufficient to convict him a dozen times over.

The Montana Legislature Now Claimed by
the Uepnbllcans A Precinct With a
Bis Democratic Majority
Thrown Oar.
Helena, Mont., October 14. The news
from Butte that the Silver Bow" County
Canvassing Board had thrown out the
Homstake Tunnel precinct, which gave a
Democratic majority of 168 out of 172 votes,
was received here with jubilation by the
Bepublicans and dismay by the Demo
crats, because if the courts sustain the de
cision of the Canvassing Board, it will in
sure Bepublican control of the State (Legis
lature. Party feeling runs pretty high and
there is much excitement over the news, bnt
the general sentiment is that the matter will
be left to the courts to adjudicate.
An interesting complication, however,
will probably ensue over this matter. With
out Silver Bow county the Bepublicans
wo nld control both branches of the Legis
lature and should the Governor call that
body together before the contest is settled a
sufficient number of Democratic members to
prevent a quorum would probably stay
away, so that we would probably be without
a Legislature until the Supreme Conrt de
cides the dispute. Another interesting
feature is its effect upon the Governorship,
and Mr. Toole will not be inaugurated
unless it is patent that he is elected without
the big majority of the rejected precinct
The count in Lewis and Clark counties is
still in progress, bnt nothing new has de
veloped. A. few irregularities were discov
ered in the second precinct in Helena,
which gave 30 Democratic majority, and the
precinct may be thrown out. This will not
affect the result on the Legislative ticket,
bnt may elect two more Bepublicans on the
county ticket. The canvassing board is
composed of two Democrats and one Bepub
lican. It is said to-night the Democrats
will to-morrow file contests against several
Bepublican precincts in this county. As
the" returns are now declared from every
county in Montana, the Legislature stands:
Senate, Bepublicans 8, Democrats 8;
House, Bepublicans 30, Democrats 25.
Members of the Democratic State Com
mittee say that they have the law of the
Territory on their side, as the
Supreme Court, several years ago, de
cided a case of the same kind, holding
that if the votes were legally cast, the
fact that a less number of judges than
those provided by law presided at the elec
tion did not vitiate the returns.
They feel confident an order will be issued
by De Wolf compelling the canvassers to
count the votes as the return shonld be
counted, giving them ten members of the
Silver Bow Legislative delegation.

The Madstone Applied With Great Sneceis
la One of the Cases.
Atchison, Kait., October 4. Several
cases of hydrophobia exist at Meriden,
Jefferson county, the result of the attacks of
a mad dog. Maud Barr, one of the victims,
has been brought here to be treated with a
madstone. She was suffering terrible agony
from convulsions yesterday, but after the
madstone had been applied she became
somewhat better, and the physicians hope
to save her life.
Three children named Peebles were bitten
by the dog, but none of them have de
veloped symptoms of the dread disease. Of
the ten children of a farmer named Cook,
seven were bitten by the dog. One of them
has developed symptoms of hydrorjhobia.

Concoed, MAS3.,October 14. A funeral
party while attending a funeral at Sleepy
Hollow Cemetery found the grave of the
late Ealph Waldo Emerson torn np, and
the plants with which it was decorated
trampled. It was found on investigation
that a party of resurrectionists had been at
work and attempted to rob the grave of the
honored remains. The object sought is sup
posed to have been the head of the poet, and
grave suspicion is being directed toward the
agents ot a Boston medical college. The
most strenuous efforts will be made to dis
cover the desecrators of the grave of one of
America's most honored poets.

particulars as to who did the killing or its

Senator Manderson's Pension Not the
Only Illegal Increase.
In the Bureau Will be Forced to Disgorge
Into the Treasury,
A Humber of Yery Fancy Plans for the Beorganha

Twenty-one employes of the Pension Bu
reau have had their cases illegally rerated,
and action will be taken to recover the
money back into the Treasury. Senator
Manderson's case will be taken as a prece
dent Secretary Blaine says that the first
duty of Congress will be to revise the tariff
Washington, October 14. It is learned
that Secretary Noble's decision in the re
rated pension case of Senator Mander
son in which, as indicated in the Sena
tor's letter to the Secretary, it is held that
his re-rating is unlawful, was arrived at
some weeks ago (though not made public),
and then establi&ned a precedent which has
since been followed by the department in a
number of similar cases. Senator Mander
son, however, it is said, occupied a some
what different position from a majority of
the pensioners re-rated by Commissioner
Tanner, and particularly those who occupy
official positions in the peqsion bureau.
Without drawing the arrearages that the
certificate showed were due him, Senator
Manderson at once wrote to the Secretary of
the Interior inquiring whether the increase
in his case was made in accordance with
law. The Secretary, in respense. forwarded
to the Senator a copy of a decision which he
had just made in case in which it was held,
as before stated, that while the Senator was
wholly blameless in the matter, the re-rating
and increase were clearly in violation of
law. Thereupon Senator Manderson
promptly returned the certificate to the de
partment that it might be cancelled.
It is learned that there are 21 of the em
ployes of the Pension Office whose ratings
have been increased. It islaid that among
the first duties the new commissioner will
be called upon to perform will be the re
covery of all moneys illegally paid on pen
sion claims. The commissioner undoubted
ly has this right, and in those cases where
the money has been placed beyond the reach
of the law the Government can apply all
future pension payments to the liquidation
of the debt. So far, however, no attempt
has been made to recover any of the moneys
so unlawfully paid. A number of the 21
employes of the Pension Office, whose pen
sions were re-rated and increased, have left
the Government service since this action
was token. A large proportion- of the num
ber, however, are still in office, and it,
therefore, will be comparatively easy to
compel a rf -payment by withholding both
salary and pension until the debt is can
Blaine Say Congress Dlnst Look After That
Before Anything Else.
Washington, October 14. It is widely
believed here that the President will recom
mend in his message some decided modifica
tions of the existing tariff. From remarks he
has let drop to persons who have conversed
with him on the subject it is inferred that
he realizes the party expediency ot such a
course, and two members of his "Cabinet
whose counsels wonld be most likely to in
fluence are of the same mind. Secretary
Windom's Northwestern education fits him
to favor revision, while Secretary .Blaine
has, within a few days, expressed himself
decidedly in hope that Congress will take
up the question at once and dispose of it.
The conversation was started by his friend's
inquiry what he thought of Representative
Lodge a scheme for a Federal election law
as means of bringing out a fair vote in the
Southern States. The Secretary answered
that this was not the time to bring such an
issue before the country. He added:
What the people expect of Congress is to
defer all other general legislation till the tariff
question is put ont of the way. As lone as
that hanss over its bead it can hope to do noth
ing satisfactory in other lines. It would be the
wisest stroke of policy for the Bepublicans of
both Houses to unite, as soon as Congress con
venes, upon a bill designed to meet the popular
demand for tariff revision without disturbing
the welfare of any established American
industry. Other matters, however interesting
and important, can afford to wait till this one
is adjusted, tor, with the people once satisfied
that the Bepublican party has made its prom
ises on this head in good faith, they will giro
it all the heartier snpport in any enterprise re
undertakes afterward.
The ExpensiTO National T07 Again the Snb.
Jrct of Oratorical Recreation.
Washington, D. C, October 14. The
reorganization of the army so long talked of
and so often deferred seems as1 far off as ever
from the multiplicity of bills and the diver
sity of their bearing which will come before
the next Congress. Among others Senator
Manderson's bill provides for adding SO
companies to the infantry, with a view of
giving it a 12-company, three battalion or
ganization, like that of the cavalry and ar
tillery. Under that bill 50 captains wonld
be made majors, 100 first lieutenants would
become captains, ISO second lieutenants
would become first lieutenants, and these
promotions would involve an in
crease of pay amounting to
$104,120 per annum. This measure
deals with the infantry alone; but another,
known, as the Steele bill, while preserving
the feature of 12 companies for the infantry,
makes a much more radical change by pro
viding that in time of peace each of the
regiments of cavalry, artillery and infantry,
although at all times fully officered, is to
have only eight companies manned.
It is probable that with all these conflict
ing measures introduced into the last Con
gress and previous ones, including the bills
of Mr. Manderson, Mr. Croin, Mr. Harmer,
Mr. Funston and Mr. Warner, an entirely
new bill will be required as a compromise in
order to effect a reorganization.
Headquarters for the World's Fair Cam.

Hillsboeo, III., October It One of
the most desperate breaks for liberty

field, recently, and escaping from a shower
of bullets, fired bv a special policeman who
had been warned of the attempt, was after
ward arrested in East St Louis while trying
to clean ont the Louisville and Nashville
About 6 o'clock last evening Sheriff Gris
wold went Into the jail as usual and let out
from the cage into the corridor
three prisoners to wash, Franklin be
ing one. He was no sooner ont
than he made a rush at the Sheriff
with a slung shot he had manufactured out
of a towel stuffed with salt and broken
glass. The Sheriff" defended himself by
striking Franklin with an iron lock",
knocking him to his knees. In the
moment thus gained Griswold got
out-his revolver, and when Franklin arose
he was looking into the barrel. Nothing
daunted, he rushed again and was again
sentto his knees, this time with, the butt
end of the revolver.
As he aj'ain arose covered with blood and
looked in'.o the revolver, he was told by the
Sheriff that he would have to kill him.
His only reply as he rushed forwaro was
to sav, "Shoot and be ," that it was
liberty orMeath with him. The Sheriff hes
itated to shoot at the man, believing he
could handle him without killing him.
Thus the desperate struggle went on till
both rolled first down one flight of
stairs, then down another. By this
time Franklin had fainted from- his
injuries and loss of blood. The other two
parties, who had undoubtedly agreed to
help him, had all the time cowered in the
corner trembling. On examination this
morning Franklin was found to have 17
cuts clear to the skull. Sheriff Griswold'g
injuries were slight.
