flW BASEBALL LEAGUE FOR OHIO.
Some Interesting Kacing at Latonia and
gexeeal spoetixg sews of the DAI
The local hall club had a little contest
Iwith the Homesteads, of the County League.
hThe score was 9 to 2 in favor of the home
fplayets. Manager McGunnigle, of the
Brooklyn club, says he will resign at the
.end of the championship series, aora ana
Jordan, the amateur athletes, have been
matched for the championship.
Probably the best came so far in the series
between thl Pittsburgs and the county
Jeacue teams was that of yesterday at
"Recreation Park. The Homesteads tackled
the National Learners, and really made a
icrcditable performance. Many worse games
have been played between clubs of the big
organizations than that which the Home-
! steads played. Of course their pitcher was
ib.it, and, at tines, very hard. But
ithe ball had to be knocked before scoring could
Ibe done, because the boys from the suburban
'borough fielded admirably as amateurs.
Lite all the amateur teams hereabouts the
Homesteads were sadly at sea when face to face
:with a National League pitcher. They faced
Staler, and i hen it is saifi that he struck 14 men
out it will be well understood tbat the visitors
were in very great difficulties as far as batting
was concerned, lhatwas

fani with perfect play on the part of the home
iplajcrs they should hare been sbut out. Dietz,
Ithe pitcher of the Our Boys team, was in the
Iboi for the visitors and he pitched a very good
game considering his class. He showed good
i speed and some good curves. He was out
i classed, however. The Homesteads had a few
ticularly Youngman and H. Howe. These
two men, judging from their work of yester
day, would do credit to a much more influential
dub than Homestead. They both fielded
I splendidly and Rowe hit the ball hard. He
also ran bases well. The outfield was also
good and Colgan did splendidly behind the bat.
One pleasing feature of the game was the fact
that the visitors never "get the rattles."
The weather was fine, and probably 100 people
were present. For five innings the game was
thoroughly interesting, as the score stood 2 to 1
Lup to that stage. The amateurs had done

THE WORLD'S CHAMPIONSHIP.
The Brooklyn and New Yorks Will Play
tSrECIAt. TZX.EC BAM TO TUB DISPATCH 1
New York, October 16. Tho world's cham
pionship series of 1SS9 has been arranred and
the first game will be played to-morrow. With
the exception of securing umpires, all the de
tails have been settled. President John B. Day
and Manager Mutrie for the New Yorks and
President Byrne and Director Able for tbe
Brooklyns met at the offico of the Sporting
Timet this afternoon and agreed upon a series
for the world's championship between their re
spective clubs. The meeting was a most
harmonious one and although it took several
hours to arrange matters satisfactorily to both
sides, tbere was not a hitch of any kind.
President Day was In favor of 7 games for the
series, while Mr. Byrne wanted 11. Mr. Day also
wanted it arranged tbat the series should come
to an end as soon as tbe deciding game had
been played. After some little talk, in which
all hands took part, it was decided that the
scries should consist of eleven games, and that
it should end as soon as one of tho clubs shall
in its sixth victory.
The number of games having been fixed, the
next question was as to dates. Mr. Dav
thought that tho sooner the games were begun
the better, and he at once suggested that the
first game b played to-morrow. This was
promptly agreed to. The following schedule
was then adopted:
Kridav, October IS Polo Grounds.
Saturday, October 19 Washington Tark.
Jlondav, October Zl Palo O rounds
Tuesday, October Washington Park.
V ednedav, October 23 Polo Grounds.

haturday, October ai-Washlngton Tark.
.Monday, October 28 Polo Grounds
Tuesday. October 29 V ashlngton Park.
"Wednesday, October 30 Polo Grounds.
By the above schedule it will be seen tbat the
clubs have apportioned the games as well as
it conld be done. In cae ram should prevent
any of the games, the postponed game will be
played on tbe next day at the same grounds.
This of course will change tbe srhedule. but
not enough tn make any serious difference.
Another meeting will be held to-dav to select
umpires and agree upon a division of tbe gate

THE CHAMPIONS MATCHED.
Jordan and Ford Agree to Throw Weight'
for the Championnhlp.
New York, October 16. Quite a party of
athletes met yesterday at 1 p. m. in the office of
W. H. Robertson, 296 Broadway, to see the final
arrangements made in regard to the weight
throwing contest between A. A. Jordan, of the
New York Athletic Club, and Malcolm W.
Ford, of the Statcn Island Athletic Club.
These two athletes took second and first re
spectively in the recent general athletic cham
pionship, and after some discussion as to their
relative merits In a single-handed contest at the
regular general athletic programme, they have
decided to settle their differences in a single
banded match at the three weight-throwing
events of that programme. Ford is considered
to have too much of an advantage over Jordan
in running and jumDlng, but in weight-throwing
they are very even. A great many think
Jordan will win the hammer and Ford the shot,
so it resolves Itself into a question of throwing
the 50-nound weight.
This is a vcrj heavy game, and nn man can
posibly hold bis own against all comers at it
unless he is very heavy and strong. The three
best men which tbh. country has ever bad at
the game are J. S. Mitchell, C. A. J. Qucck
bernerand W. L Condon: they average about
210 pounds inn eight apiece, and have records
at the game in tbe neighborhood of 9 feet.
Mitchell has tbe world's record, 30 feet 1 inch.
Jordan and Ford will averace about 158 pounds.
Jordan being two or three ponnds nnder and
Ford a corresponding number over. Twenty
feet for men ot this weight would be called an
excellent throw, for the average man cannot
send the missile over 13 or 14 feet.
Among those who were present yesterday at
tbe signing of tbe articles were W. H. Robert
son, L. Levien, Robert StolL Sam Toch, T. J.

The solar eclipse expedition in charge of
Prof. Todd started for Africa from the
Brooklyn navy yard yesterday. The eclipse
w ill be'visible December 22. Every facility
is being employed in the resources of science
to make this the most perfect solar observa
tion in history.
tSPECIAt. TXLXOBAM TO THE DISPATCH 1
New York, October 16. The solar
eclipse expedition, of "which Prof. David
P. Todd is in charge, sailed on the sloop o
wdr Pensacola from the navy yard at 530
o'clock this morning. She -will go direct
Irom here to the Cape de Verde Islands,
and there refill her bunkers with coal.
Thence she will go to Sierra Leone for.more
coal, and then stop at Fernando Po to get
coal enough to cany her to St. Paul de
Loanda, her destination. There the astron
omers will disembark and go to Maxima,
on the Quanza river, with a guard of
marines and prepare for the eclipse which
is to take place on December 22. Maxima
is about 100 miles inland. It is a Portu
guese trading station. Mrs. Todd has been
helping her husband in his preparations.
She has been working up formulas and ac
quainting him with many details of geog
raphy and climatic peculiarities on the
west coast of Alrica. She has read every
book concerning that part of Africa that
she could obtain, and has read to him se
lected passages every day.
PATH OP THE ECLIPSE.
Prof. Todd said to-day: "We have a large
equatorial, 20 cameras and otberinstruments
necessary for astronomical observations,
photographing the phases of the eclipse and
deep sea discoveries. We, unfortunately,
have not Prof. Agassiz with us, hut he says
he will try to get away in about three weeks
and meet "the ship at Cape Town, after she
has landed the others at St. Paul de Loanda.
The total eclipse will be visible in a path
about 5,001) miles long and 100 miles wide.
The path begins in the Caribbean Sea and

day at Hanover Court House. Mahone
said his say, but soon afcer Mr. Burrows
began a lively bear was seen to climb a
large tree nearby and turn somersaults and
otherwise disport himself.
The result was that the crowd guffijwed
and yelled at the bear. -Then the bear got
down from the tree and Mr. Burrows resumed,
whereupon the bear went aloft again, and,
as Mr. Burrows reached an eloquent climax
the animal danced a jig on the top end of
the limb, and the telling words of the orator
were lost in the yells of the crowd at the
bear, whose movements were directed by a
Turk. In a little while Burrows lost his
audience, for at each attempt at a new point
on the tariff the bear performed a new trick.
The bear director was seen in company

A POSSIBLE CASE,
Using Uncle Sam to Get Chenp Glove on
Hand at Sinkers' Expense.
ISrECJAL TEIEGRAH TO TBI DISFATCH.l
New Yoke, October 16. Suit has been
begun in the Supreme Court in this city by
Bruno TJhle and Alex. Von "Wagner, manu
facturers of gloves and hosiery at Chemnitz,
Saxony, against Burnham, Hanna, Munger
& Co., one of the largest drygoods houses in
the West, with stores at Kansas City and
Detroit and a branch at 34 Thomas street in
this city, for $10,000 for goods alleged to
have been purchased by the defendants and
never paid for, and for $10,000 more for
damages consequent upon the refusal of the
defendants to accept other goods manufact
ured for them.
The whole matter involves, according to
the story of Charles Putzel, who represents
the plaintiffs in the suit in this city, a con
spiracy between Burnham, Hanna, Munger
& Co. and one Jules Arbit, of Kansas City,
to obtain manufactured goods at far less
than their value in order to undersell com
petitors, the loss to fall upon the manufac
turers. Arbit appeared in Kansas City, Mr. Put
zel says, about six months ago, and set up
as a manufacturers' azent in a small office
in one of the big office buildincrs there. He
kept no stock and sold entirely by sample.
He wrote to TJhle and Von "Wagner, in Ger
many, and wanted authority to act as their
agent. He got some sort of authority, but
Mr. Putzel says that it was only to sell
goods and not to collect money. That is a
question of fact upon which the whole
case will, probably hinge. Burnham
Hanna, Munger & Co. ordered through
him $10,000 worth of TJhle & Von Wagner's
goods and the firm honored the order, con
signing the goods, it is said, to Burnham,
Hanna, Munger & Co. and not to Arbit
JLhe nrm had Arbit hx, up a preliminary in
voice, pending the arrival of the regular
consular invoice from Germany. The regu
lar invoice came duly to hand and the cus
toms authorities discovered that the pre
liminary invoice was a round 60 per cent
below the value put on the goads by the
manufacturers. Burnham, Hanna, Munger
& Co. were notified to pay a penalty of $820
for this discrepancy, and it is said did so.
The goods thus secured through Arbit for
GO per cent off, which is said to have put
them 40 per cent below tbe actual costof man
ufacture naturally went off like hot cakes,
and.all of Burnham, Hanna, Munger&Co.'s
customers ordered more right away. Order
after order was sent to Germany through
Arbit until $90,000 worth of goods, besides
the original shipment, were on their way
here or were being rushed through the fac
tories in Germany.
A MURDERER DIES.
Providence Loses Confidence In a South
Carolina Jnrj's Justice.
(SPECIAL TELZGBAM TO THE DISPATCH. J
Charleston, S. C, October 16. Death
to-day ended one of the most interesting
murder cases, outside of the McDow trial
for the murder of I". W. Dawson, that has
ever been presented to the courts in this
State. It has been said by some that Provi
dence has lost confidence in the average
South Carolina jury. John T. Lyon, of
Abbeville county, who brutally slew D. L.
Mabrey, died in jail. The court which was
to try him was in session, but his lawyers
had already obtained a continuance of the
case. Had he lived it is very probable that
he would have escaped, as most murderers
do in this State.
The crime occurred last May. The mur
derer is a native of the State and was about
62 years old. Like a good many South
Carolina murderers he is respectably con
nected. His victim was also a native Caro
linian and respectably connected. He was
only 26 years old. The murderer was the
stepfather of the wife of his victim. On the
morning of the murder Mabrey had to pass
Lyon's place of business. When nearly in
front of the town academy Lyon emerged
from the building, or arose from near it,
advanced a fewstepstowardMabrey's route,
cocked his gun, and covering Mabrey with
it.asked him if he wanted to fight. Mabrey
said nothing. Lyon drew his gun down on
him. Mabrey S3id he was a coward if he
shot. Lyon shot, Mabrey staggerea and
fell, asking Lyon not to shoot again as he
was dead. Lyon shot him again and hold
ing his- gnn down passed near the dying
man and entered a residence near by. Later
he went to the wife ot his victim to break
the news of her husband's death to her.
Both sides were represented by able coun
sel and a long legal fight was anticipated.
The interposition of Providence has proba
bly saved several thousand dollars in the
county of Abbeville.' The mystery of the
motive of the crime will probably never be
