piKiMick Believes Him to be
Honest and
KBritishers Betting 6 to 1 on Smith
Against Jackson,
vv; , -
sEesnIts of the Eastern and Southern
Ennnins Meetings.
President Ximick makes some significant
statements about Manager Eanlon and the
ijlocal League club. The battle between
'Smith and Jackson takes place on Uovem
'ber 12, and the betting is 6 to 1 on Smith.
Carroll challenges Meyer to fight for $10,000
a '"side. "There were some good running
races at Nashville and Elizabeth. .
The prominent part which Ed. Hanlon,
manager of the local ball club, is alleged to
hare taken in trying to ruin the League,
was the general theme of comment among
local baseball enthusiasts yesterday. The
writer had a lengthy interview with Presi
dent Kimick on the matter yesterday after
soon, and the latter said:
?I absolutely refuse to believe a word of the
story, as far as Hanlon is concerned. I think
he in too much of a jrentleman to play fast and
loose or two-faced in any way with us."
"Has he. ever spoken to you about the
Brotherhood?" .
"Olwtny! yes. He has talked quite frankly
to me about It, and has plainly given me to un
derstand that nobody knows what will be done
until after Monday's meeting."
"Has he ever intimated that it is possible,
he.will not be managerof the Pittsburg League
club next year?"
"Not at all. On the contrary, he has given
me to decidedly understand that he will be our
manager next year, ana we believe Ed to be
perfectly honest and a gentleman. He has
never even hinted that anything may transpire
to prevent his continuing as our manager. The
truth is we had several conversations about our
club for next year, and he has explained to me
what he intends to do and what ho does not
Intend to do with the club and the players. In
short, wc have had some interesting talks about
oarjilans for next year. These talks have cer
tainly been on the assumption that he will be
our manager. No. in the face of this I cannot
believe that he led us to believe that he would
remain here as manager and at the same time
was determined on trying to break up our
team. I think be is too square a man to do a
mean thing like that. At any rate we are pre
pared to trust Hanlon rather than believe those
wild stories."
Tf.lt turns out to be true that the Brother
hood will not even accent any concessions from
the League, but will at all hazards start a new
organization, what will you do in Pittsburg?"
"Why, we'll have a club here as usual and a
good one. That is just as sure as we live.
There are any amount ot players in the country
and.good ones at that. The young players are
nil earnestly wishing that the Brotherhood my
start its-dubs o that they'll get a chance. But
we'll get lots of the old players also. How-
ever. 1 feel confident 'from what I know that
the players will present
to the League and I am just as confident that
the League will grant everything that is fair
and reasonable and that will not tend to ruin
the game. I read in The Dispatch this morn
ings statement to the effect that, the players
""Vb'uldtfemand a reserve rnle that would keep
a player no longer than four years in a club
against his will. I think well of a rule
of that kind. I think it is fair to both
parties, but I don't expect that the players
will ever ask that no old player be not released
during a season without getting his full sea
son's salary. A demand of this kind wonld
ceztainlv be exceedingly unreasonable, and
would do more injnry to the national game
than the public bas'any idea of. Why if a rule
like that were in force a player could almost do
as he likes during nearly an entire season. Of
, course the time of meeting is getting very near,
and I wish to repeat that the National League
will patiently listen to all complaints -and be
quite prepared to grant everything that is fair.
1 am also inclined to believe that the players
have common sense enough not to make any
extravagant demands."
Harry T. Emltb Tells Abont Schemes for
Next Tear.
Harry T. Smith, the baseball authority of
Youngstown, O., was in the cityyesterday. He
is up to the head in business trying to organize
two or three minor leagues for next season. In
talking about the prospects he said:
"I have gotten the Tri-State League reor
ganized and next year the league will consist
of Canton, Mansfield, Akron. Stenbenville,
Youngstown, Springfield, Dayton and Wheel
ing. I am now trying to get a league organized
in Western Pennsylvania and part of New
York, to embrace such cities as Olean. Brad
ford, Jamestown and Erie. I think either
three or five good cities will be secured and an
excellent league formed. In my travels I have
found that there are plenty of ball players to
get, bnt the general difficulty is to get a suf
ficient number of capitalists to put up the
money. When I have succeeded in getting the
league ln'question made secure I am going to
visit Oshkosh and other places in that section
to organize a league there."
Daffy slakes a. Kick.
.Mr. Palmer O'Ncil, of the local baseball club,
was in the city yesterday. During a talk on
League and Brotherhood matters he said that
Hugh Duffy, the little right fielder of the Chi
cago club, threatens to leave the Brotherhood.
Daffy states that according to the Brotherhood
Idea he will get 2,000 for the season, while
Fred Pfeffer will get $3,500. Duffy is not
willing to stand this little difference. Mr.
. O'Neil further states that there are com
plaiiiings because it is intended to make White
"captain of. the Pittsburg team and relieve
' Hanlon. Duffv and others who kick abont
there little differences la salaries ongiit to re
member that Pfeffer and one or two others'are
getting old and consequently are making them
selves Brotherhood magnates. They must be
ipaia for this.
Gambert's Complaint.
In speaking of the Brotherhood yesterday,
A. C. Uumbert, the Chicago club pitcher, said:
"We want to stop new players from running
us. Take Earl's case, for instance. The Chi
cago clnb gave him a try in the early part of
last Season. He paid half of his own expenses
from the East to Chicago. In a short time the
clnb let him go, and he signed with a Weftera
dub. Paying one's own traveling expenses is
a bad precedent, and we want to stop it before
it becomes a custom."

The Billiard Handicap.
New Yobk, October 31 Jacob Schaefer has
succeeded in awakening a discussion among
the billiard cracks who are anxious to compete
in the proposed international tourney abont the
relative merits of the balk-line measurement
handicap and a handicap by a discount of
points in the proposed contest. William Sex
ton seems inclined now to side with Schaefer
in favor of the latter system of handicap.
Slosson. on the other hand, is enthusiastic on
the subject of a handicap of 14-inch to 10-inch.
He says that it is calculated to afford a better
exhibition ot billiards to those who pay to see
professionals play, and adds that the public in
terest is materially decreased and the pecuniary
success of a tournament correspondingly af
fected in an adverse way by handicapping of'
players by a discount of points.

Stock Raisers Bar the Sale of Indlnn Lands
' Would Ruin Their Business.
Kansas City, November 30. Secretary
Noble's instructions to Commissioner Fair
child, concerning the negotiations to be car
ried on with the Cherokee Indians for the
sale of the Cherokee strip and the published
interview with Chief Mayes, in which the
statement was made that the Indians wonld
likely accept the Government's offer, are
cansing the lessees of the land .ranch un
easiness. Colonel Snyder, a member of the
Cherokee Live Stock Association, says
that the association will obey the
Government's order to move if the Govern
ment succeeds in buying the lands. The
company would be lorcea, he thinks, to dis
solve. He also thinks, however, that the
Indians will not care to sell at 1 25 per
acre to the Government when there are at
least three cattle companies who are ready
to pay nearly three times as much.
It is his opinion that Chief Hayes was
misquoted when he was reported as saying
that he would recommend the acceptance of
the Government's offer. Another member
of the company said the loss to the cattle
men would be enormous. The cattle market
was already glutted, and when the great
numbers of cattle in the strip were forced to
sale, prices would decline to such an extent
as to paralyze the cattle industry through
out the whole country.
Why Eloper Lederer Donsn't Fear Being
Prosccated for Bigamy.
PHiLADELPHiAi October SO. George
Lederer, who eloped with Florrie New
combe, and who has been indicted by the
New Xork courts for bigamy, was seen at
the Chestnut Street Theater to-night. He
said his counsel had forbidden him to talk
about the case. "But," he added, "yon
may say. for me that when the people on the
other side get through throwing their venom
and invective at me I will explode a bomb
that will startle New York."
"What is the bomb, Mr. Lederer?" asked
the reporter.
"I do not feel at liberty to tell you, in
view of the injunction of my counsel. I do
not believe, however, that I will ever be
convicted of bigamy. Why, if I am found
guilty ot that charge, then there are 5,000
men in New York to-day who conld also be
convicted of bigamy."
The vaudeville manager seemed to be in
excellent spirits, and did not seem at all

present shape. Tbeir official intentions will be
given out early next week.
The League players say' they expect to meet
with some obstacles in tbe organization and
working of the new deal. John Clarkson is
no of the men that the New Tork branch of
tbe Brotherhood fears will not stick, and con
siderable stock was taken in the story printed
here this morning, about bis playing at the old
stand for three more years in consideration of
a good sized bonus.
"We can enjoin any man who has signed
the new contract from playing outside our ur
banization," said one of tbe New York players
Tuesday evening. As tbe player is a lawyer,
his say should carry some weight.
Jobn Morrill has been in full charge of this
end of tbe business, and will attend the New
York meeting. Jobn will not play next season,
but will look out for the busmess end of the
Boston branch.
Tbe League magnates are not idle in Chicago,
Philadelphia and Boston. They are on the
lookout for good players in the minor leagues.
John B. Day voiced the line of action
the magnates will take when he
"couldn't see how the players could get
over tne reserve rule." "We intend to enjoin
tbe men from playing outside the Leasue,"
said be, "and if tbe move should be a go, the
League has no one but itself to blame."
The League will not be able to fight with
solid ranks. The chances are that neither
Cleveland, Indianapolis, Pittsburg nor Wash
ington will be in the fray unless the richer
clubs foot their expense account?. Should the
American Association make a move to belp tbe
League nearly a dozen of their brilliant stars
will be drafted into the new move at once.
A Prisoner Who Preferred Jail to Seeing
HI Better Half Suffer.
Washington, October 30. The Hay
tian Legation building is a comfortable but
not pretentious residence on Vermont ave
nue, near Iowa Circle. If the Minister lives
plainly on the outside he has, however, a
very attractive wine cellar and splendid
cigars. Some time ago the Minister em
ployed as a servant a bright colored man
named Louis James, who had previously
been in the employ of Mr. A. S. Worthing
ton, a prominent, citizen. James seemed to
form a strong attachment for a certain brand
of fine imported wine, and the Minister
soon discovered that he must either part
with that delicious beverage' or with his
clever servant, and be chose a separation
from the latter. Shortly after the dismissal
of James no (ewer than SO bottles of this
wine suddenly disappeared, and it was
found that it became invisible at about the
same time that the dismissed servant made
a visit to the honse.
This morning James was arrested and
charged with grand larceny. The police
judge sent the case to the grand jury and
James was sent to the station bouse to be
transferred to jail. While there his young
and rather handsome wile called to see him,
and wept bitterly. Before leaving him she
told him she would employ a lawyer. "Do
nothing of the kind," said James. "I know
about how much money you have, and I
also know that your rent is abont due. Go
and pay your rent, and don't throtf- the
money away on a lawyer. m If your rent is
not paid you will be set out in the cold, but
I will be in the warm jail. Go home and
keep your money to pay yonr rent." -

A Railroad Company Worked for Half
Fare Political Tickets.
Washington, October 30. The Ohio
Bepnblican Association, a week or so ago,
effected an arrangement with one oi the
railroad companies to issue to the
members of tbe association who desire
to go home to vote a .round-trip, ticket
for one fall fare. To secure the advantage
of this arrangement the purchaser had to
present a certificate to the ticket agents
from the President of "the association,
showing that he .was a member of the
organization, and was going home to vote.
These certificates, with .the proper signa
tures attached, were' distributed among
active members of the association to issue to
voters. To secure one ot these certificates,
however, the purchaser was required to pay
55 to the association. About 150 have been
It was developed to-day that a lot of the
certificates had gotten into the hands of
ticket scalpers. The railroad com
pany got on to the wholesale man
ner in which the certificates were being
used, and suspected that some members
of the Ohio Republican Association were
not playing fair. An investigation devel
oped thai one of the prominent members in
the association had furnished a certain
scalper with 15 or 20 blank certificates,
properly signed with the President s name,
upon the payment of $5 for .each certificate.

Ronte for the East.
Kansas City, October 30. The Pan
Americans spent the day looking over
various industrial establishments. This
morning Minister Zcgarra, of Peru, said to
Governor Francis that he had heard a great

Prince Murat refuses to dispose of him

francs per year. He says Princes real
French ones cost a good deal more than
that. And therefore the engagement with
the noted American heiress is as if it bad
never been.
:bt cable totes dispatch.
London, October 30. Copyright.
Prince Murat, the gallant French cavalry
General, who has become variously decorated
and extensively gray in the Paris salon and
a provincial chateau, has finally refnsed to
let himself ont as a mari decoratie to the
pious American heiress who gave half a
million to a Catholic university.
"Heine," said the Prince to a circle of the
intimates last evening, "the Jockey Club
was Assez de la G alette. Not enough money.
I say nothing to my fiancee about- money
until Saturday. The lawyer calls at her
hotel, where we were all gathered
by appointment to sign tbe settlements.
I. bad expected to witness on her part some
generous Elan. What do you imagine I saw?
That dnring my life time I was to be al
lowed 50,000 francs only, and should she die
before me, leaving no heirs, the money was
all to revert to her family.
"Madame," I said, "you deceive yourself
greatly. I am not an Italian. French
princes are quoted much higher in the
matrimonial stock list, and with my most
distinguished salutations I left."
The Prince was congratulated for the
noble stand he made against the American
bear movement on the European matri
monial market, and the nightly baccarat was
resumed. But this is the truth. Miss
Caldwell plainly stated from the commence
ment of the affair that should the marriage
take place, she proposed to run her finances
as belore.
She was willing to give her husband
0,000 francs per annum lor cigarettes and
Paris mntuels on Sunday races, but had no
idea of intrusting her fortune to such
spendthrift hands. Murat acquiesced,
hoping that by good behavior
he would obtain more liberal
terms, but Miss Caldwell never faltered in
her thrifty resolution; though on pleasure
bent Bhe evidently had a frugal mind. Fi
nally Murat's family, and in particular
Prince Joachim, intervened, and tried to
dissuade the bead ot the house from a mis
alliance, by which, owing to
the family was not to profit, and when the
Princess Joachim learned how cheap her
father-in-law was going, she offered out of
ner private fortune to give mm tne same al
lowance as Miss Caldwell, provided the
marriage should not take place, and as the
Princess Joachim is the niece and principal
'heiress of the late Mme. Hurtado Heine, it
was simply a flea bite.
So the engagement has come to a happier
end than the friends of both parties were
ever justified in hopintr, for Prince Murat
has gone to Fontainebleaa to-day to take
part in a large shooting battue of two days,
which James Gordon Bennett is giving'at
his celebrated cbasselle there, while
Miss Caldwell's house on the avenue
D'Alma is alive with congratulatory visitors
and everything goes merry as a marriage
bell, without the chilling presence of a
sexagenarian groom. The moral of the
story, which American heiresses must- take
to heart, is that they cannot be provided
with a first-class Prince without paying for

declared, had not produced anything to sup
port these charges, except the evidence of

Boycotting, Mr. Davitt declared, was not
advocated as a means of personal injury or
intimidation, bnt as embodying tbe popular
sense of refusing to associate with those act

St. Louis, October 30. The vast property
of the St. Louis Brewery Association has
not been sold to an English syndicate or to
any other syndicate. The probability of
the beer industry passing ont of the hands
of the SI. Louis owners is so remote as not
to invest the rumors that are' irregularly
current that a big deal to that effect is im
minent or has been closed, with a basis suffi
cient for serious'consideration.
Ellis Wainwrigbt, President of the
Brewers' Association, was interriewed on
the latest rumor, and said: "To sum up
the whole thing, certain capitalists desired
to purchase the property of the association..
They wanted all or none. They could not
get all of it.- .and that end the negotia
tions." '
