completed the arrangements between the
Hew York and Brooklyn clubs for the
games of the world's championship, and al
though Manacer McGunnigle is so 60on to
leave the Brooklyn club, he was as enthusi
astic over the world's series as the greatest
crank. Following is the agreement between

THE UaiPIEES SELECTED.
The great question to be settled at to-day's
meeting was the selection of umpires. Mr.
McGnnmgle, having the choice of a League
umpire, took Lynch, and Mutrie selected Gaff
ney. These two men should do good work, and
It is the general opinion that some of the best
umpiring of the season will be seen at these
games. Both teams are in the very best con
dition for to-morrow's game. Owing to tbe
reat crowd and the fact that the games will
egin at 3 o'clock each day, it will be necessary
to go early to get seats or even standing room.
The teams will be represented as follows:

Secretary Scandrett Shows Where Brother
hood Figuring Is Wrong.
In. talking of the Brotherhood notions of
League profits yesterday afternoon Secretary
"Now the case of the 'Washington clnbonght
to convince the Brotherhood leaders that there
Is not so much money in baseball as they would
have the public believe. Mr. Hewitt is un
doubtedly losing money, ana deems it only fair
to his relatives to cease using up the estate of
histlate father in any such way. Probably Mr.
Hewitt will be inclined to remain with the
clnb if any other business man or men
wi'l buy part of its stock. I am
informed that he has offered to
sell half of the clnb to see if he can get any
copartners. So far there has been no response.
Does not this show that there is less capital to
be invested in baseball than the players seem
to imagine. If money cannot he had to invest
in a clnb already orcanized and with excellent
, grounds, where is the money to come from to
organize a newjclub and fit up new grounds?
"The ay in which players talk about the
profits of ball clubs i absurd. I estimate that
Boston clears SS0.UOQ, Xew York$G0,000, Chicago
140,000 and Philadelphia about 110.000. The
other clubs, on an average, are losers Well,
then, the profits named make a total of $190,000.
Mesrs, Ward, Keefe and others may know all
about playing ball, but depend upon it they
have little idea of the financial department of
the club, and that is the most vital after all."
An Alleged Qnlet Meeting.
New Yoek, October 17. There was a very
secret meeting of Brotherhood magnates and
enthusiastic capitalists in this city day before
yesterday, conspicuous among whom were
John Ward and Arthur Irwin, who had taken
a quick run over from Washington to attend
the meeting. Just what happened at the meet
ing none of the gentlemen present would say.
bnt it is understood their session was long and
interesting, and that the plans of the Brother
hood's revolt from tho League were rully
talked over. "The BrotherhoodJLeague," said
a baseball crank yesterday, "is a sure 'go.' "
To-Mcrrow's Local Race.
Considerable interest is being manifested in
the race between McClelland and the pacer.
Donald B. which takes place at Exposition
Park to-morrow afternoon. There lias been a
little betting on the result at even money. The
talent seem to think that McClelland has the
best of the handicap. It is thought that the
horse -will not pace the two miles and thre
qnarters in less than eight minntes, and that
McClelland can easily beat this time In a mile
and a half. However, if the traek is good the
race promises to be an interesting one.
Another Local Fight.
George Gillen and Jack Hayes were matched
to fight to a finish last evening for $50 a side
and the entire gate receipts. They are to fight
within two weeks within 100 miles of Pittsburg.
The Tiattle will be governed by Qoeensberry
rales, .and two ounce gloves will oe used. Both
men are light weignts ana nave uaa some ex
perience in the prize ring. Hayep is a resident
ox uaa rencevuie ana umen is as umo man.

THEY WENT TO PIECES.
The Homestead and Pitcher Jones Get a
The Pittsburgs visited Homestead yesterday
and played the return game with the team at
that place. The amateurs went sadly to pieces,
and, if anything, burlesqued their good work
of Wednesday. Young Jones, of the
Pittsburg clnb. was in the box for
the Homesteads, and be was touched
up quite lively. 12 hits, with a total of 17 bases,
being made off his delivery. This slugging,
combined with some very bad fielding by bis
colleagues, netted 15 runs for the Pittsburgs.
Jones undoubtedly was anxious to do too
much, as he went into the box with a notion
that he would come ont victorious, entirely
forgetful that he had not the Pittsburgs behind
him. H. E. Colgan made a wretched show at
third base. Maul pitched well for the Pitts
burgs and his support was good. The weather
was fine and about 600 people were present.

PLAYING GOOD BALL.
Dentin Pitches a Great Game, Shutting ths
Cincinnati Team Ont.
Cleyelakd, October 17. Beatin pitched a
marvelously good game to-day and Cincinnatis'
red legs got only two hits off his delivery. He was
brilliantly supported. The Cincinnatis have lost
none of their old-time dash and vigor.and play an
exceedingly pretty game in the field. Viau was
in the box for the reds and was hit hard and
often through tho game. That same puzzling
drop and wide sweeping out-curve that fooled
the Cleveland batters of '83 was not so effective.
He was supported by Earle and Tony Mullane
held down the first station in place of Keilly.
With two men out McKean got a pretty three
base hit in the first inning, but Twltchell
could not get him in. In the second Gilks
led off with a pretty line drive to right field
and Beard made a phenomenal one-handed
catch of Faatz's liner. McAleer's sacrifice
sent Dilkes to second, and be scored on Sut
cliffe's hard drive to center. In the fourth
Faatz flew out to Beard, and McAleer got first
on Beard's pass of his ground hit. He stole
second and scored on Sutcliffe's red hot drive
toward right center. McAleer's single, Sut
cliffe's third single and Radford's hard gronnd
hit gave Cleveland another run in the sixth.
With two men ont in the eighth Beatin got his
base on balls, and hits by Radford andStricker
sent him home. Nicolgotas far as third for
the Reds in the fifth on his two-base hit and a
pretty steal, and that was as close as Cincinnati
got to a run. The score:

BALTIMORE TO BRACE UP.
The Monumental City Crnnks Anxious to
be Higher In the List.
rirZCIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. '
Baltimore, October 17. There will be great
changes in the Baltimore team next year. As
at present made up the clnb has very little
chance in the race for the pennant. No one
knows this better than the financial backer of
the club, whose pocket now feels the effect of
an economical policy. Indeed, by many it is
thought that, instead of one or two owners, the
club will be managed by a stock company. The
players who will undoubtedly be retained are
Kilroy, Foreman and Cunningham, the pitch
ers: Tucker and Shindle. basemen, and Griffin
and Ray. center and riirht fielders. It will be
necessary to sign a new shortstop, left fielder,
second baseman and two catchers. The men
must be able to hit hard and often, as well as
to field their positions well.
Manager Barnie has expressed a determina
tion to secure the required material, but un
fortunately he does not control the purse
strings of the club organization, or be would
have done so long ago. The majority of men
who control the national game are of the
opinion that Baltimore is not now a baseball
city in the sense of making the fortune of the
incorporators of any club started here.

BIG BILLIARD TOURNEY.
Negotiations Going on for a Great Interna
rSriCIAL TXXZORAH TO TBS DISPATCH. I
NewYobk. October 17. The news of the
negotiations between George Slosson, of this
country, and HughCoIlender, in Paris, to bring
about a big international meeting of the billiard
stars, made a. sensation in billiard circles and
has started all the professional cracks at prac
tice play. Maurice Daly said that he believed
that the negotiations for the tourney would be
crowned with success finallv. It is his idea that
it would be more profitable for the professional
experts to begin the international tourneys on
the other side of the water, however.
There is a good deal of curiosity among bil
liard lovers here to learn the identity of Beaux,
who knocked Carter off bis pins so handsomely.
Daly is inclined to think that he is the young
German who was champion of Berlin when
Daly was abroad two years ago. He says that
if Beaux is the same man, then he is a natural
plaver and a dandy.
There is a lot o( correspondence going on
about the international tournament, and news
is expected from Mr. Coilender in a few days
abont the progress of the negotiations. Inci
dentally things are getting red hot around
Slossons headquarters on Broadway over the
tatter's latest manifesto addressed to Schaefer.
Slosson practices day and night to keep him
self in trim for a battle of the cues.
SEARLE'S LATEST OFFER.
The Champion Wonts O'Connor or Teemer
to Go to Australia.
LoNDOir.'October 17. Henry E. Searle, tho
champion sculler of the world, sailed for Aus
tralia yesterday, accompanied by Neil Matter
son, bis trainer, Chris. Crane, the representa
tive of his backers. He expects to make a
match with Stan'bury, a fellow-countryman,
immediately on arrival, for 1,000 a side, and
says that if O'Connor, Teemer or any other
man will row him for a like amonnt on the
Thames be will be willing to return next year,
providing he retains the title. He has no pres
ent idea of visiting America, but, failing en
gagements in Australia, be says he might be
tempted to cross the Pacific.
If O'Connor will row him for 1,000 a side on
the Paramatta he will concede 200 for ex
penses. He has no idea at present of rowing
for the championship in America.

SPECIAL TELZGKAM TO THE DISFATCB.1
ANspsxA, Conn., October 17. Six months
ago a quiet looking fellow, giving bis name as
John Commons, came to this place and secured
work in the Ansonia Brass and Copper Com-
Eany's shops. He began to let drop hints of
is powers as a pedestrian. This reached the
ears of Patrick O'Keefe, of New Haven, who
issued a challenge to Commons for 200.
The stakes were put up, and a ten-mile heel-and-toe
match took place Saturday night.
Commons won without an effort It now turns
ont that he is none other than John Meagher,
of Lawrence, Mass., the champion heel and toe
walker of the United, States. Sporting men
in New Haven threaten to bring suit to recover
the stake money, and also to black list him.

A COSTLY SOLUTION
M the Electric Wire ProDlem. Bow
Staring Those Interested
FAIRAHD SQUARE IN THE FACE.
Enormous Possible Expenditures That
Threaten the Solvency of
TUtS PEINCIPAL LIGHTING COMPANIES.
Experts Hoping That a Way May Be Found Open
The solution of the eleotric wire problem
is dwelt upon by experts in New York City.
They acknowledge its importance, bnt be
lieve it capable of speedy solving.
IEFXCIAL TH.EGHAU TO TUX DISPATCH. 1
New Yobk, October 17. It has become
apparent that the whole electric wire ques
tion is one of current tension. The solution
of the uroblem is easily within popular com
prehension, and there need be no confusion
over the hot technical disputes which the
electrical experts are having. The matter
is as simple as tbe difference between high
and low pressure boilers, and the questions
of electric and steam pressure are closely
It is comparatively much less expensive
to accomplish a given result by a high
pressure electric current than it is by a low
tension current In other words, it costs
about one-third as much to light 100 arc
lamps with a 3,000-volt current as it does
with 300 volts.
BANKEUPTCT nr SIGHT.
"While it is true, as stated by Mr. Edison
in a note printed recently, that an enforced
reduction in voltage would not compelthe
companies to adopt his svgtem, still it is
also true that such a change" would involve
expenditures so enormous that the solvency
of all the electric lighting companies in
town would be threatened. It would
mean new dynamos, new wires, and
new apparatus. It would mean,
probably, the establishment of new distrib
uting stations, and an increase in operating
expenses perhaps tenfold.
The best practical demonstration of the
difference between the high and low tension
currents is to be had from two or three re

power wires. Albert Gray, the manager ot
the Daft Company's lines and plant, said
Air expebt's belief
"I do not believe inlimiting the intensity
of currents by law to a low voltage; neither
do I believe in putting the high tension
wires under ground. When yon do this,
the danger will be increased instead of de
creased. To compel the companies to adopt
low tension currents would almost bankrupt
them. I believe we shall soon have some
system of insulation that is adequate and
safe. Experts are experimenting all the
time, and I'm sure they will give us the
right thing before long. There are several
forms of insulation already in use that are
perfect when first put on; but they do not
long withstand exposure to the weather.
There is no safety in an underground high
tension wire. The moment the insulation at
any point becomes defective, tbe current will
escape first to the subway lining and then to
a gas pipe or water pipe or subway manhole
cover, and the most deadly and insidious
perils would meet us at every hand. People
would be struck dead while lighting the
gas or turning a water faucet in their

PLUCKY JOHNNY M'TIGHE.
He Had a Despnrate Struggle with Tom

DIcTlgbe's Ieck Lacerated.
About 11 o'clock last night, just as Fifth
avenue was crowded with people leaving
the theaters, Detective John McTighe
noticed Thomas Horan, a notorious pick
pocket, going through tbe crowd in front of
No. 102 Fifth avenue. Inspector McAleese,
Assistant Superintendent O'Hara and Cap
tain Stlvus.were standing near at the time
and when Horan saw them he dodged into a
He darted np the stairs to a billiard room
over No. 100. McTighe followed bim and
just as Horan entered the door of the billiard
room the detective's hand was on his collar.
Horan being the larger man at once showed
fight, bnt as McTighe dragged him to
the stairway, he managed to get a
hold on the detective and threw
him on the stairs. McTiehe pluckily held
on, however, and a hard fought struggle
ensued for about a minute. Horan reached
around and began tugging to get tbe detec
tive's revolver out of his pocket McTighe
then released his hold on Horan, and him
self drew the revolver, striking Horan a
heavy blow over the eye with it Horan
then caught hold of the revolver also, and a
struggle or possession of the weapon en
sued. Horan, however, having the best of
the fight by reason of his size, was grad
ually overcoming the detective and bad
seized him by the back of the neck with his
teeth, when McTighe gave a yell which
caused McAleese, O'Mara and Silvus. who
had been standing at the corner and knew
nothing about what was going on, to go to
Tbe officers rushed up and quickly over
powered Moran, who was then conveyed to
the Central station. Neither he nor the
detective were mnch hurt during the scrim
mage, but the police officials say that if
Moran had secured the revolver the tale
would probably have been different, as he is
regarded as a desperate character.
There have been a number of pockets
picked at the Exposition and in crowds on
the streets lately, and it is believed that
Horan hai had something to do with them.
McTighe has been shadowing him for sev
eral nights in the hope of catching him in
the act, but failed until last night Horan
was arrested for pocket picking by Roger
O'Hara, at Milwaukee, during the G. A.
B. encampment, and has but recently re
turned to his home In Allegheny.

A PERPETUAL DEBT.
Henri Watterson Says That It Would
be a National Blessing.
SAFETY FOR SMALL INVESTORS.
Free Trade Appeal Addressed to
SOME YERY YIGOEOTJS PBNBI0H YIBWS.
The Control of the South Must Remain in the Bands
of the White Race.
Henri Watterson addressed the National
Board of Trade Convention at Louisville
last evening. He gave free expression to
his views upon a banking system in rela
tion to the national debt, the tariff laws and
the pension question. He conclnded with
some radical remarks upon the present con
dition and future prospects of the South.
Lotjisvim-e, October 17, In the Na
tional Board of Trade convention to-day the
Torrey bankrupt bill was indorsed and a
memorial adonted reciting its virtues and
recommending it to Congress for enactment
by the National Board of Trade after a two
hours debate. There were only eight dis
senting votes, two of which were upon the
gronnd of the disapproval of a single section
and the balance were prompted by an op
position to any bankrupt law,
A reselntion was passed requesting the
Pan-American Congress to take action for
the establishment of a unit of coinage com
mon to all American people. The meeting
was closed this evening with a grand ban
quet and an address by the Hon. Henri
Watterson, who spoke on the general state
of the conntry. Of monev matters he said:
A DIEECT QUESTION.
What are yon going to do for a banking sys
tem when there are no more bonds to build on?
Some ten years ago, I ventured to propose that
We rednce the national debt to a thousand mill
ions and then, that for a fisral basis, we fund
these thousand millions at a low rato of inter
est and make the debt thus reduced perpetual.
Everybody laughed at me. Some said I was
crazy, others insisted that I was simpl; a fool,
but! am more than erer persuaded of the truth
and force of my suggestion: because, to say
nothing about the banks ana tbe future of our
banking system, we ought to have some fixed
securities for small holders, which can neither
be swallowed up by a deluge ot watered stock,
nor be able to runaway to Canada.
Hr. Watterson next took np the tariff, and
among other things said:
1 have never believed that we shall have free
trade in this country until the manufacturers
themselves lead the free trade movement
That this is only a Question of time. I have al
ways believed, but meanwhile, here is a system
of taxation devised exclusively for war pur
poses, yet outlasting those purposes a quarter
ivCBBiurf, aou aa surciy w suuieuuuy pro-
posevtoputit on a peace tooting, somebody
else statu up and says that, being about all
that sunriveLof the war, we ought to hold it
sacred and kee??a a relic. Well, it is a relic,
sure enough, for war Ktarbarous, and there is
not a donbt that tbe war X"ft is a relic of bar
barism. - j
SOlfE FANCT FIOl&ES
For my part, I can live underVny kind of
tariff that the rest can. and care 3 little for
expenses too. for in my day Ibave pi,d as high
as $500 for a pair of boots, and $5 for al glass of
ice water seasoned with nutaieg in Confeder
ate money but really it does seem to me that
at the moment when our public men are rack
ing their wits to find the means of spending the
excess of revenue tbe tariff yields us, it is
about time that we consider whether it would
not be better to save more and spend less.
Of the pension position Hr. Watterson
We have a pension list that costs us nearly
as mnch as the costliest standing army in
Europe, and still the cry comes up tor more. I
have been fighting this with all my might and
main, and have had for my pains tbe charge
very freely made that the motive of my opposi
tion is hatred of the Northern soldier. Gentle
men, this intimation would be laughable if it
were not detestable. I respect the Northern
soldier so highly that I would rally to his side
to save his honor. I feel so mnch at home with
bim that I can afford to discuss his affairs as a
member of tbe family. I was sorry when the
war began, because Iloved theUnion; was glad
when it ended, because it gave us back the
Union, and 1 have rejoiced ever since in the
ever-growing fraternization of the people and
the ever-increasing glory of the nation. It is
late in the day for anyone to accuse me of sec
tionalism, for during years when
IT COST SOMETHING
to speak as I am speaking now my voice and
pen were devoted to the amplest defense of the
national spirit; and when loyalty salted for
oaths and pledges I gave heart homage and
hostages. It is this circumstance and the feel
ing of brotherhood in all that concerns the
North which lies here, that has emboldened me
to speak very plainly of the wastage of money
and the corruption of morals involved in this
pension business. If a stop be not put to It,
that which began in national indulgence will
end In-national digrace.
Hr. Watterson closed his address with a
reference to the new Sonth and thefnture of
the race problem. He said:
Gentlemen, you are at this moment standing
on the gateway mat ieaas to we oouin. rue
wealth that Is there, bidden no longer from
human eyes, flashes in yonr very faces. You
can smell the roses of new hope that fill tbe
air. You can hear the heart beats of progress
that come as upon the wings of heaven. You
can reach forth yonr hand and almost clutch
the gold that tbe sun rains down with his beams
as he takes his daily journey between tbe cot
ton field and the coal mine, the highlands of
wood and iron, of marble and granite, the low
lands of tobacco, sugar and nee, of corn and
cane, of wine, milk and honey. But what is
the value of all this if we have not order and
law, regulated by intelligent and responsible
THE BACE QUESTION.
How shall it profit you, or us, or anybody, if
it be not brought under tbe spell of that
wizard's wand which we call civilization? And
to whom shall this wand be committed, to the
Anglo-Saxon with centuries of enlightened
freedom behind bim, or to tbe African, jnst
emerged from slavery? Through and through
this Eldorado there winds, deep and dark, a
stream which, when undisturbed, mores in
limpid and beneficent tranquility from tbe
mountains to tbo sea, carrying in safety, the
rich fruitions of the South, but which, when
agitated, becomes a very terror to all that Is
embarked upon its tempestuous bosom, to
property and life, to public policy and domestic
peace, to society itself.
No one can comprehend tbe meaning of this
great menace to the prosperity of tbe South
who has not been there, who does not live
there; nor is it possible for it to be treated with
wisdom by any other but local agencies. Can
not the thinking people of the North imagine,
if they are finable to see thlsT Can they not
feel that they may trust the intelligence, tbe
humanity, the Christianity of the Month and
the testimony of tho truly responsible North
ern men who have gone Sonth, to deal with a
disease which outside pressure has always ag
gravated and will always aggravate? 1 speak
warmly and confidently. On this point, at
least, I can afford so to speak.
I struggled earnestly ana long io eaiauusu
the black man in his rights under the Constitu
tion and Its .amendments, to strike tbe black
laws out of the statute book, to spread tbe gos
pel of God's love Into a duty of man toward the
education and elevation of these poor emanci
pated slaves; and if the opportunity and the
need came, constitute myself tbe Hoses and
ask no nobler title to immortality. But I am
filial with nn rain iltnatanit born of SVmnathV
and ignorance. Iamblindlononeof the dan
gers that lurk amid tbe shadows of this great
cross which for some mysterious purpose I

Ized an Extensive Janket They'll Have
Their Eyes Opened by Oar Slchts Who
Last night an aggregation of railroad ex
ecutive ability in the persons of a number
of general freight and passenger agents,
representingHastern and Northeastern roads,
arrived in the city over the Allegheny Val
ley Bailroad and put up at the Honongahela.
Theyare hers as the guests of the Buffalo,
Bochester and Pittsburg Railway Company,
and are in charge of the general freight and
passenger agent of that line. Hr. Joseph P.
The idea was conceived some time ago by
that gentleman of affording the general
agents of the lines mentioned an opportu
nity of familiarizing themselves with the
territory through which the B. B. & P.
Bailway operated, and accordingly invita
tions were extended to them to make a spe
cial excursion through the district. Some
25 gentlemen accepted the opportunity, and
assembling at Bochester yesterday, were
carried through the Wyoming Valley, visit
ing the salt works there, viewed the oil wells
of Bradford, passed through the Inmber re
gion of Northern Pennsylvania and over the
Kinzua bridge. A visit was made to the
mines and coke ovens of the Bochester and
Pittsburg Coal and Iron Company at Wals
ton and De Lancey, and by special invita
tion of General Superintendent HcCargo, of
the Allegheny (Valley Bailroad, they trav
eled over the latter line, stopping o2 at
Ford City to view the glass works there.
Prior to entering the city an impromptu
meeting presided over bv Hr. John Por
teus, of the Boston and Haine, was held in
the cars, and resolutions passed thanking
the Buffalo, Bochester and Pittsburg Bail
way Company for their courtesy and hos
pitality. Toay will be spent in visiting the works
at Homestead and other place? of interest
in the vicinity, and in the afternoon
the visitors, still as the guests of the
Bnfftlo, Bochester and Pittsburg Bailway
Company, will be entertained at a banquet
in the Duquesne. This evening the visitors
will return home over the same route, while
