STAKSBURrS CHALLENGE TO SEARLE.
Most assuredly all of us who are in any
way interested in baseball affairs are in a
pretty-mix. "What this magnate bas said
and what that player has declared and what
somebody else has stated has put us into a
position just as bewildering as were the
muddles in which Lord Dundreary found
himself occasionally. That notable charac
ter really became uncertain about his own
identity, and according to stories circulated
every day it seems hard to determine
whether or not the Brothernood and League
will play ball in America or in some planet
far away from the one on which we now are.
However, with a little patience we can
penetrate the will-o'-the-wisp stories and
get down to something solid in this famous
Brotherhood and League controversy.
There is a certain amount of reality
in the stand the Brotherhood has
taken against the League, but to
what extent it (roes is wbat seems to pnzzle
everybody. What is real and what is sham is
what bothers the outer world that is, that
part or the world that is not fortunate enough
to be on the inside of the Brotherhood's move
ments. Bat two very important personages
have opened tbelr mouths this week and de
clared themselves. They are such important
people as John II. "Ward and Fred Pfeffer, both
authors, by the way. Now let it be understood
tbat the statements of these two bright partic
ular stars, moons, snns or anything else they
may be" termed, knocks all the wild stories
about the Brotherhood completely out; in fact,
pnlTerize them. Mr. Ward very definitely in
forms us that the Brotherhood bas decided on
no plan yet, and that if it does the capital'
needed will be subscribed by outside parties.
Ff effer has repeated this statement and added
another to it of very great importance. He
plainly declares tbat if the grievances of the
players are removed that will settle
the whale dispute, and he adds that
until the meeting of the Brotherhood
is held next month, nobody can tell what tbe
Brotherhood intends to do. Now this is a very
wise course to pursue, and readers of Tee Dis
patch will note that I have been urging this
course for a very long time. A few weeks ago,
when Tim Keefe intimated that a meeting of
the Brotherhood would be held next month. I
then stated the advisability of the players de
nning their grievance and presenting a state
ment to the League. I now feel confident that
this will be the course pursued, and if it is, good
will probably result At any rate, the public
utterances of Ward, Pfeffer and Keefe all
mean and in a very definite way that the
Brotherbood bas not yet decided on any partic
ular plan of action, and will not do so until after
theirown meeting and tbat of the League. lam
inclined to believe these gentlemen, but I have
another side to present, and it is somewhat
Important If Trne.
A few days ago I learned through a friend
that at a Brotherhood meeting of the local play
ers it was definitely decided to have a new
club here next year entirely distinct from that
of the National League. Now, before going
into the details of tbe information received, let
me frankly state that I withhold the name of
my informer, and I refuse to say whether he is
a player or anything else. However, he is in a
position to know exactly all about the matter
from beginning to end. Well, he assured me
that the players bad determined to leave tbe
League'club and join another in this city next
season. He further stated that two of the
players had been deputized to confer with one
otthe most-important officials in Pittsburg
City Hall on tbe question and solicit financial
aid. A few days ago I went to this official and
asked him what he knew about the Brother
hood. The question undoubtedly startled him,
and although usually very affable he showed
his temper at once, and very enrtly replied: "I
know nothing about it." Now this was Mayor
McCallin. Subsequently I met my informant
and told him of the Mayor's de .ial of being
connected with or knowing anything about
the Brotherhood, ily informant stuck to his
original statement, and as I have already
stated, if ever mortal should know whereof be
speaks my informant ought to be that man.
He emphatically stated that tbe city official
in question had promised plenty of support to
a new club. However, the story lost consider
able of its charm and sensation when tbe whole
thine was denied by Mayor McCallin. I don't
want anybody to infer from what I say that tbe
Mayor is in any way connected with tbe Broth
erhood intentions. Of course, when he says ho
is not. that would seeminirlv end it hut ,
fact that an authority that would seem to leave
not even the smallest vestige of a doubt savs
different. What and who are we to believe? " 1
mention the case because it is like so many
others that have taken place in other cities.
Atthe early stages of tbeBrotberhood romance
the names of prominent business men in vari
ous cities were connected with the alleged new
organization. One by one these gentlemen
emphatically denied all connections with the
scheme. However, 1 do believe this: That in
all the League cities players have been at work
canvassing to find out what solid and
reliablo support can be had for a
club should a new organization be determined
on. That this has been the case in this city is
quite true, and that tolerably good support bas
been promised is also true. But this is as far
as matters have gone. At the Brotherhood
meeting, which is to be held on November 4,
each representative will present a statement as
to the prospects of launching and sustaining a
club in this city. It altogether depends on tbe
solidity of the support promised as to whether
or not the idea of any new organization will De
favored. Manager Hanlon said to me tbe
other day: "If wo start an organization it will
be a success," pltinly intimating that the above
plan ofactinn is the correct one. At present
One player of one city knows little or nothing
about the prospects of support at another city,
and it is only by meeting ana proceeding as
above indicated that a correct and comprehen
sive idea can be obtained about the condition
of affairs. This then ought to settle all the
lairy storiesnntil after the meeting referred to.
The Reserve Rule.
One of the most interesting features of tbe
basebaHcontroversy during the week has been
the League's threat to enforce the reserve rule
against all tbe players who signed a contract
tor 1889. When this intention of the League
magnates was first made known it was gener
ally considered a very weak attempt to make a
very tic "bluff." However, the more it is dis
cussed by legal authorities its importance and
power become -very much clearer. During the
last few days, it is a fact that many players'
nave oegun to turns: mai mere is sometning In
it after all. I don't profess to know law, but I
am free to admit tbat to me tbe contract of
1S89, that which was signed by the players last
winter and spring, is very easy to understand.
Of course there may be legal leatures buried in
it tbat only legal men can find, but I do argue
tbat the contract on the face of it means that
each player who signed it to play in 18S9 agreed
also to play for tbe same club in 189a The
players think tbey have found a rock of
safety in the definition of the word
"reserve." They claim that it means nothing
more nor less tban that each player who signs
it must play with no other League club or club
governed by the national 'agreement- than tbe
clnb which siens him by the contract named.
There may be consolation in this, but X am
afraid tbat it will be like a drowning man
grasping at a straw. The contract, and par
ticularly section 18, does not mention nor de
fine with whom the players shall not play, bat
It does say with whom he shall play. It may be
trne that in tbe past plavers left the League or
Association and joined other organizations
that Here not governed by the national agree
ment; it may also be true that these players
were on the reserve lists of some League or
Association club, bat because the clnb that
had them reserved did not institute legal pro
ceedings against them it does not follow that
there was no way of doing it. Because a man
tails to prosecute in one case, that Is no reason
why the law should bo inoperative in another.
Instances of defying the reserve rule in the
past bavo been exceptions, but at present it
threatens to be wholesale. The plain English
of tbe reserve clause of the contract is that the
club signing the player has first claim on the
services of tbe. player for tbe season next
ensuing the one in which be signs. This claim
taxes precedence ol the claim or anybody else
and there is no line drawn or special reference
to any particular organization. The player
signs with the particular club and not with the
League. If an iron firm, a member of an em
ployers' association, were to contract with a
workman to work for the firm for the year and
the next ensning, would there bo any reason to
suppose that that contract only referred to iron
firms in that association T It seems safe to say
that a court would construn tbe conti act to
mean something quite different and that tbe
contract secured the workman's services for
the firm against all other iron firms in tbe
country. If tbis principle would hold good
m the case of one man it would hold
good In tbe case of all workmen. It seems to
me, therefore, that the ball players who signed
tbe contract in question are similar to the
workman in the supposed case. However, it is
not likely that matters will go so lar as a court
of justice. Should a conflict between the Na
tional League and the players be carried to
court an injury will be done the national game
which years may not repair. Certainty base
ball is extraordinarily popular among American
peoole at present but public or popular feeling
is soon turned. The spirit of hero worship, as
Carlyle called it, is extremely fickle and uncer
tain. We may make kraes to-day and butcher
them to-morrow. It is, therefore, possible for
those most interested in the national game to
act in a way that will poison the public mind
Will It Pay f
But let us see what players have to gain by
deserting the League and joining any new
organization. I referred to this matter two or
three weeks ago, but since then Mr. Ward has
told us that if the BrotberbOod joins a new
organization it will be for other capitalists, and
Mr. Ward argues that these other capitalists
are just as good business men and just as well
able to manaire a baseball organization as those
at present at the bead of tbe National League.
Well, it is something to know from an au
thority like Mr. Ward, that even if tbe players
join a new organization they will simply be
transferring their services lrom one set of
capitalists to another. Now I assume, and I
think bnman nature saysTm correct, tbat these
capitalists, or to be definite, these "other capi
talists," will not throw in their tens of thou
sands of dollars merely for the fun of it and be
cause of an extraordinary philanthropic love
for the ballplayers. I don't anticipate any
such noble and self-sacrificine motives will
actuate these "other capitalists." If they go
into tbe alleged or proposed scheme depend
upon it that it will be for tbe money tbere is in
it. We may safely come to this conclusion. If
this be the case, then will anybody tell me how
these "other capitalists" can make more money
in baseball than are tbe magnates of the
League? If more money cannot be made, how
in the name of common sense are tbe players
going jo get an increase of wages or salary?
There is an old Scotch adage which is very ap
propriate here. It isr "We better keep to tbe
dell we ken than gang to the deil we dinna
ken." But I argue that the chances of the
players improving their condition by a whole
sale bolt to a new organization are exceedingly
remote. Suppose for a moment tbat a new
organization was started, and that it put clubs
into Pittsburg, Chicago, Washington, Cleve
land, Indianapolis and other places. We
never for a moment think that the Na
tional jeague would not be represented
at these places also. Most certainly the
National League would be tbere and the two
clubs in each city would become great finan
cial failures. Under these circumstances who
would have the best of it? Why, the older or
ganization, of course. There would be such
demand for money from the "other capitalists"
during tbe season that they would be likely to
soon see tbe wisdom of confining themselves to
the business tbat bad earned them tbe money
iu waste on uaseoau. due wnen we reduce
tbis matter to a question ot every day life we
will at once ask ourselves the qnestion: Are
the ball players a down-trodden and oppressed
lot of poor individuals? If the question could
be answered fairly in tbe affirmative tbe pub
lic would, indeed, not be slow to aid them
toward improving their condition. But if we ex
amine the condition of things I think we'll find
tbat ball players as a rule are among tbe best
Eaid class of performers or workers tbat we
ave. Dozens of them have from
$2,000 to $3,000 for seven months' work, and halt
of their board paid. Many more have from
$3,000 to $4,000for tbe same period. Now, how
many men are tbere in tbis country who have
gone through a course of education ranging
from when they were 5 years of age until- they
were 21 years old, and who have nothing like
$3,000 for an entire year? I don't ask these
questions or make any of these statements to
in any way disparage tbe efforts of ball players
to obtain higher salaries; I like to see them get
all tbey can; but what I mean to say is that
players are not tbe victims of oppression and
poverty tbat many people would have us be
lieve. True, they are engaged under conditions
which, in some respects, cannot be defended,
but these can, and I think will, be remedied. It
has, however, been proven that no club can
keep a player on the reserve list for a lifetime,
as has been generally believed. Good lawyers
tell us that all tbat can be done under tbe
League contract is to keep a player reserved
for the season next ensuing that in which he
signs. This definition, then, removes a very
Ton Der Ahe'a Scheme.
I dare say few people who have been interest
ed in baseball during tbe last few years will be
surprised to learn of tbe alleged intentions of
Von der Ahe and President Spalding. The
world has been told that these two shining
lights of the baseball world have resolved to
consolidate tbe American Association and the
National League, and make one big organiza
tion out of it. Some of the clubs in both the
present organizations are to be discarded, and
anew league of 10 or 12 clubs formed. The
great object of this consolidating ot forces is to
fight the Brotherhood. I need not remind Dis
patch readers of the fact that the scheme is a
very old one. The idea has been preacbed, and
ably at that, by many writers for many seasons.
It need, therefore, be no surprise to the
patrons of tbe national game to see the
scheme make its annual appearance. Probably
a more favorable time for its discussion conid
wot be than the present. There is much com
mon sense in a scneme or plan such as it is, and
many very sensible baseball writers and
authorities are of opinion that a consolidation
will come sooner or later. I do not intend to
discus the merits or demerits of this plan of
organizational present, because I am strongly
inclined to tbe opinion tbat it will not be
adopted for some time to come, if ever it is
adopted. Doubtless the disruptions in the As
sociation and tbe apparent difficulties sur
rounding tbe League would cause many clubs
to indorse the notion at present were it to be
put to a vote, but it would seem unreasonable
to expect that any such scheme would be
adopted until the League players had made an
open revolt It seems to me that a step of this
kind will be averted, and that after all the
smoke of buckshot tiring is cleared away,
we'll find ourselves next year with the
League and Association plodding Jon as
usual. Whatever conclusion Messrs. Spalding
and Von der Ahe may have come to, the fact
remains that the generalmeeting of everybody
directly interested will have to finally pro
nounce on tbe to-be or not-to-be of tbe consoli
dation. However, it would seem that if such
a move were to take place the Brotherbood
players, ir tbey formed a new organization,
would be considerably injured. The best of
the Association players, together with tbe best
that could be secured elsewhere, would make
an attractive organization, and the immense
amount of money at command would make it
a deadly opponent to all rivals. But what
about the Association playcr? Would they
keep in line? Here is a.very important ques
tion. If th?y are willing to act contrary to the
desires of the Brotherhood members I fearthat
tbe efforts of the latter will be a complete fail
ure. It is the players of the Association tbat
tbe Brotherhood has to fear probably more
than the League magnates.
Tbe World's Championship.
The contest between the Brooklyn and New
York clubs for the world's championship. is at
present more exciting than the vast majority of
people ever anticipated it would be. Already!
ine xtrooiuyns nave securea more victories tban
the most ardent admirers of tbe League ex
pected they would get during the entire series.
I am free to confess that the Brooklyns are
further ahead at this stage of the struggle than
I expected tbein to be, but at tbe same time I
enforce the argument tbat a combination of
tbe most fortunate, not to say questionable,
circumstances has placed them where tbey. are.
Nobody can reasonably say that pood ball nlav.
mg has gained them tbeir victories. Certainly
the New Yorks have not played as tbey can
play; if tbey bad I question very much whether
or not tbe Brooklyns wculd have had more
than one victory to their credit now. It still
seems a certainty for tho New York?, providing
they can keep their best form up. It is a pity,
however, tbat so much ill-feeling has been en
gendered during the tames. Of course both
teams are extremely anxious to secure highest
honors, but still this anxiety could be dis
played without one-tenth of the brawls and
quarrels that have characterized the contests
so far. - .
About the Pnjritlats.
The week has not been a busy one for the
pugilistic fraternity. There have been two or
three encounters of more or less Importance,
but they are not worthy of any extended no
tice. However, one of the features of the week
is the reappearance of Fat Killen before the
pnblic I had thougbt that Patrick would re
main in obscurity for a season after Ins en
counter with McAuliffe. However, he is to tbe
front agaln.and writesa friend in Brooklyn that
herill be in that city as soon as possible to see
his friends. He bas issued a challenge to Joe
McAuliffe and all of the other heavyweights,
but McAuliffe savs that he is afraid that be
will not get a fair show in the" Northwest. Kil
len says: "I do not know where a man can get
a fairer show than in Straul. He would cer
tainly stand a better chance tban I did in his
town. Since my return home a lot of tbe North
Wisconsin sports have been cracking away at
me to meet them in Michigan. Tbe fact of the
matter is I could not win a fight with a broaaax
in any part of that State. I am ready and
willing to meet any and all of them on equal
terms, but I won't put myself in the hands of
tbe law. Their talk about bare knuckles is all
bluff. I stand on the same ground I have here
tofore, ready to meet all comers in my class in
a glove fight I do not pretend to pay any at
tention to tbe cbeap random chaff of Sheedy
and others." Now If there ever was any verita
ble blowing or bluffing this is a good, sample.
Of course I know that Killen would be glad to
meet men like McAuliffe in a stage contest
with big gloves. Why-ghouldn't he? There is
meney in it, lose or vim Killen knows this as
well as anybody in the business. It was by big
gloves that he became known as Pat Killen.
and it was with big gloves that he persuaded
tho pnblic he was a great pugilist when he was
nothing of tho kind. His reference to unfair
treatment at San Francisco must mean that
McAuliffe hit him too hard.
Kilrnin on Deck.
It is somewhat surprising to read a statement
emanating from Kilrain to the effect that he is
anxious to again face Sullivan with or without
gloves. I bad thought that recollections of
Mississippi wonld keep Kilrain most earnestly
devoted to his boxing school, but I certainly
have been wrong. However; it may be that
Kilrain Is determined not to allow Sullivan to
have more advertisment for his boxing tour
than he, Kilrain, gets for his school. However
tbis may be, one cannot avoid the conviction
that Kilrain's statement does not amount to
much. His reference to a fight with Sullivan
with bare knuckles is, to say the least all bluff,
because Kilrain knows tbat it would be
impossible for a bare knuckle figbt between,
him and Sullivan to take place in the United
States, and they won't leave the country to
fight That part of Kilrain's declaration re
f errincr to soft gloves is very interestinc. He
bas bad two fur trials to prove that he is a ring
fighter, and has failed, and if he is a failure in
tbat style, goodness only knows bow he would
make out with John L. with soft gloves under
Queensberry rules. If Kilrain wants to earn a
good pile of money let him fight and defeat
Slavin, tbe Australian. I venture to say that
tbe latter would give tbe Baltimore represen
tative all he bargained for and probably a little
A Plttsbnrser's Success.
It must be gratifying to all Pittsburg patrons
of sports to read of the success achieved on
the turt by George Smith "Pittsburg Phil"
of this city. Probably few young men have
risen to prominence in turf circles more
rapidly and more honestly than Phil j I may say
more honestly. Tbe latest intentions of thj
very successf ul young man is to have a racing
stable of his own. This means that So far he
has enriched himself immensely in his turf
speculations. While he bas been doing tbis
his actions have been characterized by remark
able shrewdness and noteworthy honesty, and
whatever his next move may be none of u, I
think, will hesitate to wish him well. But
there is such a thing as over speculation. Many
bright patrons of the turf who have
amassed wealth by backing tbe
horse of other people have made
dismal failures when they became owners them
selves. Of course I know some who have only
increased their fortunes by becoming owners.
The famous "Jack" Hammond is a prominent
instance of the latter; but where there is one
Hammond there are dozens who collapse. How
ever, should Phil get a stable together he will
be a worthy addition to the list of race horse
owners in tbe country.
A week or two I mentioned that Searle was
not likely to get a match race with anybody for
some time except it be with J. Stansbury, his
fellow countryman. At the time I was writing
that opinion Stansbury must have been making
up his mind to have another try with the
formidable Searle. Stanbury's ambition is
reasonable because ho gave tbe present
champion of the world his hardest race.
They rowed in July, of last year, over a
course of three miles and 330 yards. The
speed must have been great for the distance
was covered in 19 minutes and 53 seconds.
This race really brought Searle into promin
ence, as the time is tbe best on record. v7hile
it brought Searle to the front it also stamped
Stansbury as a good man, and his friends were
not at all satisfied with his defeat He has
been hard at work since then aiming at re
deeming bis defeat so tbat tbere is every rea
son to believe tbat his offer to row Searle .or
anybody else, either on an English or Aus
tralian course for $2,500 a side is genuine. It is
reasonable to expect tbat Stansbury bas im
proved since his race with Searle on the Parra
matta, and if be has, a great" race may be
looked for should they row. However, Searle
cannot decline tbe challenge without forfeit
ing all claim to championship honors. But
Stansbury's challenge goes further than Searle.
It plainly intimates that tbe challenger is
ready to meet anybody this' side of the globe;
in other words, I take it to mean tbat he is
readv to row O'Connor, Gandaur or Teemer on
the Thames. The general opinion is that
Stansbury is below the standard of Searle, and
if there is any faith in tbis opinion, surely
O'Connor, at least, will take up tbe gauntlet
The Australians are undoubtedly forcing mat
ters in all branches of sport throughout the
THE FAST RECORDS.
Some Interesting Facta About Speedy Trot
ters of This Season.
Fast time is one of the most essential ele
ments of a trotting meeting, as it is a guarantee
of excellence that the most disinterested spec
tator appreciates and jots down in nis memory
as a pleasant reminiscence. The races may be
closely contested and split up in tbe most be
wildering manner, still they fail to arouse the
electrical burst of applause that follows an un
precedented or even a sensational performance.
In this respect many of the trotting meetings
during the past few years have been palpably
weak, for, while they signalized the appearance
of many star performers, they failed to come
up to tbe free-for-all standard, and left tbat
important event a nollow victory for one or two
horses each season.
Tbe first part ot the present season proved no
exception to tbe rule, but after Geno Smith
and Harry Wilkes met at Poughkeepsie and
Hartford the public looked forward to a re
newal of the championship struggles in which
Lucy, Goldsmith Maid, Lady Thorn and Amer
ican Girl participated. As the season advanced
the volume of tbe free-for-all material in
creased, and now the. records show tbat six
names have been added to the 2:15 list while
two that were members of it have reduced the
marks that were opposite tbeir names at the
beginning of tbe year. This is a slight improve
ment on last year's showing in this list, as tbere
were also Six adJitions in 1SSS, but no corres
ponding reduction of records.
Four of the six in last year's group made
their records in races, and of the additions this
year, Jack, Palo Alto and Nelson also trotted
to their marks in the same businesslike man
ner. Tbe Pilot Medium gelding was tbe last
to enter this select circle, and as his crowning
performance, as well as that of his cotem-
poraries. is the best of tbe"year, we present the.

New Yoke, October 26. The Giants
were again the people to-day, when they de
feated the Brooklyns before 3,321 people 11
rnns to 7, thereby taking the lead in the
series for the world's championship. It was
a bad day for baseball. It had rained'dnr
ing the evening, was very threatening dur
ing tbe day, and Old Prob said that it
wonld rain sure. This affected the attend
ance greatly, and most of those who came
were prepared to be driven away by rain.
The game was played, however, to a finish.
At first it looked as if the Grooms would
not be in it but tbey rallied in great shape, and
made the New Yorkers feel very uncomforta
ble for awhile. Tbe hitting of the New Yorks
in tbe second inning was simply terrific. Tbey
batted Lovett in every direction, and that
young man was retired at as early an hour as

both sides when the wet grounds and weather

not handle tbe slippery ball well, and tbe
Brooklyns did not have to depend upon their
ability to hit the ball safely to score. They
reached bases nine times on balls off Crane and
twice off Keefe, who pitched in the last three
innings. The Brooklyns failed to make a hit
off the latter. Corkbill again did some fine
fielding, and Connor, Ward, Richardson and
Smith did good work. Ewing did the best
batting for bis side, and his example was well
followed by bis comnanions. Foutz did the best
batting for the Grooms. The spectators
ENJOYED THE FUK
hugely and cheered both sides to the echo.
Dick Johnston and Sam wise saw the game to
gether, and there were many baseball stars of
greater or lesser magnitnde in tbe crowd. The
next game will be played in Brooklyn Monday
with Terry and O'Dayasthe pitchers. Rich
ardson now leads tbe batting in tbe series for
New York with a batting average of .881 Clark
leads Brooklyn with an average of .112. Ward
and Collins have each stolen five bases in the
Tbe Brooklyns were more orlessbandicapped
at tbe most important point namely, in the
box. Terry, who made the best showing against
tbe New Yorks, could not be asked to go in
again, and Caruthers did not seem able to bold
his own satisfactorily against the League men.
The choice then was between Lovett and
Hughes, and the former was selected.
The New Yorks well remembered this young
man since last spring, for they had hit him
bard at that time and had no fear of being able
to hit him now. Just what they did with
Lovett is shown by the fact that they pounded
out nine runs in the first two innings. The first
inning was spent by the New Yorks in getting
the range of Lovett's shoots. Tbis had been
accomplished when they. started in for,tbeir
second turn at the bat, and then they hit the
ball. Such a streak of hard hitting is not often
seen, and when Richardson wound up the bom
bardment with an over-the-fence hit for a home
rnn the New York crowd yelled like Indians,
while tbe Brooklynites had nothing to say.
This, however, was fie end of the heavy bit
ting, for liovett settled down somewhat Still
when the visitors began to pile up the runs and
there was some chance of their winning the
game, they wisely
TOOK LOVETT OUT
of the box and put in Caruthers. There was a
marked increase in kicking in this game. The
Brooklyns kicked at many decisions, sometinfes
justly, but oftener without cause. The field
play was much better than' the pitching,
although it was not so sharp as on the day be
fore. O'Rourke's hit over the center field fence
was one of. tbe features of the game. It went
over on the north of tbe flag pole, and reliable
"Pop" Corkhil), who stood on the top of tbe
embankment watched the horse hide sail out
of sight and sighed "when will this thing end."
As a whole, the game was only satisfactory
from a New York point of view. Score:

PRESIDENT YOUNG'S DENIAL.
He Says the League nnd Association Will
ISrECIAL TELXOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Washington. October 26. President Young
denies that there is any foundation 'for the re
report tbat a combination has been formed be
tween tbe League and American Association.
He says the League was founded upon an eight
club basis, and it will hardly depart from tbat
idea at this late day. A 10 or 12 league would
be unwieldy, and produce too many complica
tions; bence he takes no stock in the state
ments attributed to Messrs Spalding and Von
der Ahe, published in this morning's dis
patches. A long letter was received at League head
quarters to-day from Mr. Spalding, in which
be assures Mr. Young tbat he is in no way re
sponsible for many of the alleged interviews
with him that have been telegraphed through
out the country. He states tbat he bas been
credited with giving expression to views that
were simply Imaginary on the part ot certain
writers, and on tbe other hand his silence has
been purposely misconstrued to give color to
Although several of the League clubs have
commenced to sign players from minor league
clubs Mr. Young does not look for any definite
movement toward signing the old players until
after the November meetings are over. He
has not made any reclassifications under the
new rule for the reason tbat none of tbe clubs
have yet sent their annual affidavits showing
the amount of salary paid to tbe various play
ers. He insists that the classification is not a
dead letter and predicts that It will be main
tained in the best interests of the League.
ONE FROM PHILADELPHIA.
The Quakers Get Into Line With a Brother
Philadelphia, October 28. There is no
cause for doubt about what has been said con
cerning the Brotherhood's scheme to run a
league among themselves, at least as far as tbe
Philadelphia end of it is concerned, for a Prttt
reporter walked into an uptown residence last
evening where seven of tbe 12 people Interested
in the Philadelphia Brotherhood club, were
seated preparatory to going into secret session.
A reporter learned that there wonld be a meet
ing last evening, and from half-past 6 until 8
o'clock the reporter, who was disguised, be
cause tbe majority of tie people be expected
to meet knew him, recognized every man who-
entered. Six of the seven are prominent in
business circles, and no one of them is worth
less tbat $75,000. Tbe seventh man was Fog
arty, of tho Phllauelphia Clnb. Wood was ex
pected to be present but be has gone East
The reporter subsequently entered tne, house
and met the master ot tbe dwelling. The host
wenton to say tbat tbey were dickering for
four different locations, and that tbey would
decide on one of them last night but would do
nothing more nntil after tbe New York meet
ing. He further said that the Brotherhood'
club would have the best players the market
could afford, and that tbe schedule would be
made so as not to Conflict with tbe games of
ABOUT THE JOCKEYS.
Senator Hearst Slay Get Hayvrnrd Big
Offer for Unrneii
William Hayward, the jockey, will, wo hear,
ride for Senator Hears't next season. We do
not know that it is definitely settled, but we
have heard that Matt Allen, who trains the
stable horses, has negotiated with Hayward for
his services since his jockey, Hamilton, signed
with Mr. Belmont Tbe retirement of Mr.
Cassatt leaves Hayward without an engage
ment He could ride as a sort of free lauce
and secure all tbe practice be would need, but
Hayward is a most -conservative man. He
prefers a steady engagement It is wholly op
posed to his temperament to figbt for his po
sition. He loves tbe security of position, is
ratber old-fashioned, and has no "valet;" be
carries his own traps about and is always
around when bis stable's horse Is running, and
whether be is riding or not deems It bis duty to
be present and assist in making his horse'f
Fred Taral, the jockey, has severed his con
nection with the Beverwyok Stable. Taral has
been in Campbell's employ for tbe past two
years, and has ridden some very clever races
during tbat time. Campbell says the trouble
with Taral was one or increasing weigbt Tbe
young man is of good constitution and inclined
to fiesb, and several times he bad been nnable
to make weigbt for races which the stable con
sidered it bad an excellent chance of winning.
We were tempted to answer Campbell to tbe
effect tbat tbe bandicappers were as much at
fault as the jockeys, who, like Taral, are forced
to "stand down." The addition of four pounds
to the scale of weights has not worked the
benefit expected, as tbe handicaps, which are
numerous, are at a very low standard, and tbe
top-weichts areithe ones which declare.
Johd Campbell, tbe Beverwyck' trainer, told
us tbe other day he had offered Barnes, the
jockey, $8,000 for his services for next season,
but the little jockey refused to sign. Barnes
bas had more offers tban any one in the profes
sion. Senator Hearst and Mr. Scott both are
said to have wanted him, but he has acted very
coy with everyone who made any advances, and
it became common gossipjtbat be was "holding
out for the best offer." Barnes has the repu
tation of being the best light-weight in tbe pro
fession, and in tbe opinion of many he is fully
five pounds better tban any of his cotempora
ries. Certainly he has wonderfnl patience for
a youngster, and seems to be able to time his
finish with a judgment tbat would do credit to
Tom Cannon or the best in any country.
Stoval has been engaged to ride for the Bev
erwyck Stable for the balance -of the season.
Stoval will arrive from tbe West and ride at
Linden on Saturday. He has been prominently
before the pnblic as a jockey for the last six or
seven j ears, and will be a decided acquisition
to the riding talent "over the river." Spirit of

ANOTHER BIG BACK
All (he Champion Feds Coming to
MOfiE THAN $1,000 TOR PHIZES,
Jack Hammond Wins $300,000 on His
PAEEELL AND THE MAEINEMAr FIGHT.
Wiud-Up of the Lexington- Fall Meeting General
Arrangements have been made for a grand
72-hour go-as-you-please contest to take
place in this city during Christmas week.
There is a probability of a battle being ar
ranged between Pat Farrell and the Marine
this week. Hammond won $300,000 on his
horse Laureate. The Lexington fall race
meeting finished successfully.
The sporting pnblic in and about Pitts
burg may expect another big six-day pedes
trian contest here shortly. Manager Harry
Davis bas made definite, arrangements for a
72-hour race to take place in this city dur
ing Christmas week. Prizes aggregating
51.000 will be given, and a new track will
be prepared for the event.
Mr. Davis bas been figuring for sometime
on holding a 142-hour race, but at tbe last
moment be has changed his mind, and tbe
contest will be as above stated, It will take
place in the London Theater, but that place
will be entirely renovated for the occasion.
The bar and all the partitions in
the interior will be taken out and a
track laid right around the building.
This will be somewhat costly, bnt Mr. Davis
means to have it done. The track will be
about 25 laps to the mile, and a track of that
size is satisfactory to tbe leading pedestrians
particularly for a 72-hour race, atthe rate of
12 hours per day.
SOME BIO PEIZES.
The $1,000 will be divided into prizes, as fol
lows. First, $450; second, 1250; third, $150;
fourth, $100: fifth. $50. Beside these prizes a
gold medal worth 100 will be given to any con
testant who breaks a record. In addition to
these two conditions, opportunity will be of
fered the contestants to make a sweepstake
contest that is a numbecof them can put up
$50 or $100 each, and tbe winner of the party
of contestants in the sweep to take all or part
of the stakes, the balance to go .to the second,
third, etc Noremac, Moore, Bay and others
favor this idea strongly, and they claim that
at least six or seven of the contestants
will be able to put up $50
or $100 each. Of course any
contestant not putting up a stake will not have
any claim to share the money, even though he
should win tbe race. The stakes will only be
contested for by those who put them up. The
entrance fee to the race will be $25, and it is
Jesired to limit the starters to about 20. A
limit will be fixed and no prize will be paid to
a contestant who does not get over it in the 72
ALL THE LEADING PESS.
Mr. Davis has already heard from the leading
long distance pedestrians in the country, and
it is expected that the following list will be
sure starters; George Connors, G. D. Nore
mac, D.Herty, P. Golden, William Smith, the
Cowboy; M. Horan, J. Adams, Gus Guerrero,
E. C. M oore, .G. Howeartb, T. Cox, J. Bay, Sam
Day, Andy Slebert, J. Hughes, P. Hegel
man, Norman Taylor, and Hart the
colored chamnion. This lot probably
Includes tbe best 12-hour-a-day pedestrians
In tbe country. Hegelman, Cartwright,
Noremac, Moore and Guerrero are all extra
ordinary 12-bour-a-day men, to say nothing, of
Golden. There is considerable rivalry among
almost all of them, and it seems certain that
there will be a good sweepstakeput up. Cart
wright bas many admirers here, and they are
ready to back him. Noremac has backing in
Philadelphia, and it is likely tbat he will be
backed against Cartwright in a very spirited
way. Hegelman, too, bas many supporters
who' think be can defeat anybody on a reason
able track in, a 12-hour-a-day race for six days.
At any rate, the proposed match will give them
all a chance, and doubtless it' will be a great
TO MEET THE MAEINE.
Arrangements Being Made for Pat Farrell
to Flht La Blanche Definite Word
Expected This Week A Let
ter From Halllnnn.
There is a strong probability that Pat Far
rell, the promising young middleweight pugil
ist of this city, will be. matched against. La
Blanche this week. He will -probably know
definitely about tbe matter to-morrow or Tnes-
day, and if he is informed that a battle has
been arranged he will leave for San Francisco
A few days ago Farrell received a letter
from his enthusiastic admirer John Hailinan,
of San Francisco, statins tbat he. Hallinan.
had presented Farrell's name to the director of
tbe California Athletic Club, together with an
offer for Farrell tofigb,t La Blanche for the
middleweight championship. .The directors
thought well of the proposition, but deferred
definite action on it until a future meeting,
which was to be held last Monday. As soon as
tbe directors would come to an agreement on
the matter Hallinan promised to again write
Farrell, therefore, a letter Is expected early
Hallinan has had a conversation with Tbe
Marine on tbe proposed battle, and the latter Is
quite willing to fight Farrell at' 161 pounds
Jiroviding a substantial purse is offered. Hal
inan feels confident that tbe club will make a
good offer, and tbat tbe battle will take place.
The sporting writers of San Francisco have all
given Farrell's claims to the front rank great
Srominence, and several ot the club directors
now hfm very well.
Farrell, who is on the local police force, was
questioned regarding the matter last evening,
and dnringja conversation, he said: "Yes. it Is
trne tbat I expect to meet La Blanche. I had
a letter from my backer. Jack Hallinan, two
days ago, and he seems to think tbat it will be
a go. La Blanche has promised him tbat he'll
fight me at 161 pounds, and this weight is suita
ble to me. I really offered to get down to 153
pounds and allow La Blanche to fight at catch
weight At present I weigh about 190 pounds,
but I can easily get down to 161. I have a great
desire to meet tbe Marine. Of course I think
I can best him, or else I would not be willing to
Farrell, undoubtedly, is in excellent health,
and, excepting bis extra. weigbt is in first-class
condition. He is amuch improved boxer since
the time when he metand.knocked McCaffrey
our. He is not only more active, bnt is a better
bitter, and certainly exercises better judgment
He bas been a most careful student of the
"manly art" for .months, and from a pugilistic
standpoint, has been a great gainer. Probably
a better opponent lor La mancne coma not De
secured, because his stvle is in many respects
similar to that of the Marine's; while Farrell is,
undoubtedly, a harder hitter than the van
quisher of Dempsey. At any rate 'the Pitts
burger's friends are in hopes tbat a contest be
tween him and La Blanche will be arranged.
If it is, several Pittsburgers will travel to San
Francisco to see tbe encounter.
