THE- PITTSBURG DISPATCH; "'SATURDAY,
NOVEMBER " -2,
Another Body Threatens the
' National league.
LOCAL OFFICIALS' YIEWS.
Al Johnson Hakes His Final State
ment About tbe Scheme.
SOME YERY CONFLICTING STORIES.
A Terj Successful Finish of the Bearer
6ENEEb.Ii EPORTIKG NEWS OP THE DAT
The minor leagues threaten to join the
Brotherhood against the National League if
the latter does not act reasonably. The local
club officials laugh at the report Brother
hood authorities tell conflicting stories. The
Bearer shootinc tournament closed. There
was good racing at Nashville. Jack Mc
Aulifie definitely challenges Carroll. Teeni
er may go to Australia and row Searle.
As the day of the Brotherhood meeting
draws near, the public interest in it be
comes more intense, that is as far as the
baseball "public is concerned. Now that
the eve of the meeting has arrived, almost
all those business men and players who pre
viously declared that they knew nothing
about anything relating to a revolt against
the League are declaring themselves.
The most amusing part of the business,
however, is the conflicting statements of all
those who "know all about it." They can
not possibly be all in the right, and it will
be interesting to find out finally who really
escapes being in the wrong. The latest is
from Minneapolis, the city which a few
days ago sent out the very stupid story of
Mr. Spalding laying plans to back the Brother
hood. A dispatch from Minneapolis last even
ing reads as follows:
TVHA.T MOBTON SAYS.
Secretary Morton has notified the managers o
clubs in minor lespues in every part of the
country to tend representatives to the 'Western
Association's meeting. An alliance, offensive and
defensive, will be formed, and then all will lay
back on their oars to await the action of the
League and Brotherhood meetings.
If the League passes unreasonable rules relating
to tbe minor association, Morton's plan is to
receive propositions from the Brotherhood.
Should these propositions not meet with favor, a
general session of the minor leagues Is pretty sure
Morton has a big scheme for the government of
these associations, which has in view tne esiera
Association becoming to the minor associations
what the National League has been in the past. In
a nnt6helL Morton proposes that the Western
Association will become an open competitor to the
Tbe officials of the local club were asked
their opinion about the above last evening and
they laughed heartily over it. President
Nimiek was inclined to think that the object
of the statement was to lead people to under
stand that if fhe League and Association do
not grant tbe minor leagues all they want they
will join the Brotherhood. Mr. Nimick, bow
ever, very wisely argues that it will be soon
enonrjhto talk about tbe minor leagues when
it is known that they wish any direct change of
tbe national agreement.
WILL TBEAT THE MINORS FAXBLT.
He states that most assuredly the National
Agreement Committee, as in the past, will deal
justly with everybody. The intimation from
Minneapolis, however, is Generally understood
to be a garbled talk with Secretary Morton.
The purpose of it is apparently to intimidate
the League to give up everything to the
Tim Keefe has also been talking, and his
statements are very much contrary to what he
said a few weeks ago. Then be plainly stated
that the players would decide on nothing defi
nite until their representatives had met the
League magnates. Now Timothy says that
Monday's meeting rill decide as to whether or
not the Brotherhood will meet the League at
all. But the most interesting expression of
opinion o the matter is from tbe extremely
philanthropic Mr. Johnson, who seems pre
pared to sacrifice everything in order to place
tbe poor down-trodden ball players on a bed of
roses. Mr. Johnson's latest to a Cleveland re
porter is as follows:
MB. JOHNSON'S LATEST.
The story telegraphed from Boston giving the
assljrnmct of men to the various clubs is nothing
but a fake, lio one can tell what men will play
In the teams next season. We have made np our
minds what men we will ask for, and I tell yon
that there will be three strong batters In the
team. There is a wrong Impression about this
business, and people cannot grasp the Idea. The
best people In the country will back tbe clubs.
line of the first things we did after the plan had
matured wastonaes a resolution saying that no
professional gambler can hold stock in the clubs.
Thi.ls to raise tbe stanJara oiuif game. Twent
tr 'sand dollars Is tbe limit of the capital sloe
In each city, and 120,000 In Cleveland Is Jest as
rood as 120.000 wortn in new xorx or Boston.
That is because the bails of division of tbe receipts
will be SO percent of the gate receipts, grand
stand and every other source of lneome. This will
seem to equalize tbe matter and put the weaker
clubs on as strong a basis as the stronger ones.
Evidently there are going to be some first
class financiers in the new organization because
it will be quite a feat to launch a new clnb on
new grounds in many cities on a capital of t20,
000. However, that matter stands like "his:
Johnson says it Is well fixed; Keefe says it is not
quite fixed; Ward says tbe players will meet the
League: Hanlon says nobody knows anything
about what will be done, and many reporters
have tbe Brotherhood contracts signed, the
teams made up and tbe managers appointed.
Now is the opportunity for Rood guessers to try
their powers, and guess who is right. It is
really a very interesting state of things.
THEr WANTED MUTEIE.
Trntbfnl Jeems Refuses an Offer From the
The latest move on tbe part of the backers of
tbe new Brotherhood scheme baa been to male
an attempt to secure James Mutrie to manage
the Brotberbood team in this city. When the
scheme was first made known tbe Sun was not
backward in saying that tbe -New York end of
it was James J. Coogan. and this has turned
out to be a fact. Manager Mutrie was not at
all backward in telling the story last night of
bow the attempt had"peen made to get him to
leave the New York club. He said that Mr.
Coozan bad come to him and said:
"Will you take a moderate salary to manage
tbe new team that is to be started in this city I"
"No," was the reply-
"Will you take a handsome salaryT"
"No," said Jim, "1 will never leave the men
who have made baseball in this city; I will
stand by tbem to the end. There is not enough
money to make me do otherwise."
"Then Mr. Cooiran is tbe man who Is backing
the schemef remarked tbe reporter.
"I don't know about that: but I think be is
or be would not have come to me. I know one
thing; and that is, be will find that offering
200,000 for a well-organized clnb and a good
plant will be a far different thine from sinking
S20Q.O00 in an experiment. Let them do as they
please, I think that we will be right m this town
next season." A". T. Sun.
McKEESrortT, November L The indications
to-night are that not less than $1,600 McKees
port money will go with a big crowd to Snters
to-morrow to be placed on John Jinks in bis
contest with Charles Carmen, of Buters, in
wbicb tbe men will pitch a game of quoits for
tlOO a side 61 points clay end pegs set 80 feet

IRON W0KKEBS FOR THE SOUTH.
Southern Industries Advancing With Giant
The city lost some of its iron operatives
last night by the departure of nine rollers
for the South. They were engaged by Mr.
Charles Yalet, of the Birmingham Boiling
Mill Company, of Birmingham, Ala., to
work in thpse mills, of which he is superin

in the Moorhead-McCleane Company mills.
Among tbe party were Jacob "Ward, roller,
formerly of the Bepublic Iron "Works; Con

Harrison, rollers, who worked in Shoen
berger's mills and Williau Bogers.
Mr. Yalet was emphatic about the future
of tbe iron industries in the South. Some
of the mills were built within a stone's
throw of a rich ore and within a tew miles
ot a good quality coal. The country was
being opened up at a greater rate than the
people in the North supposed.

New Yobk, November X The asree

The Dispatch correspondent is in a
position to give all the important points in
the agreement, drawn np' and signed by
Presidents Adams and Hughitt on the 18th
of October. It provides, in the first place,
that "a joint through line for the transporta

from or delivered to connecting lines of

as to business on the lines of the Union
Pacific and the Northwestern system. It is
significant that an exception is made as to
all business of the Union Pacific in Kansas
or along the line of the Kansas division of
the Union Pacific It will be noted that
this exception leaves the way clear for the
Union Pacific to make precisely the same
arrangement with the Chicago and Alton, so
far as the Kansas division is concerned, that

system with which a similar connection,
very advantageous to both companies, could

are to be based in accordance.with the pro
visions established by the percentage book
No. 2, bnt in case the proportion accruing to
the Northwestern falls below half a cent a
ton per mile, all further reductions, if any,
shall be made in the Union Pacific propor
tion, and until that drops to three-quarters
of a cent per ton per mile, then the reduc
tion shall be divided by pro rata on the
basis of one and a half miles for every mile
on the Union Pacific and one mile for every

seen, provides for the .differentials which

KEPT AS ITS OW2T.
The Union Pacific retains the full ad
vantage ot differentials to Colorado points,
and in any connecting business any propor
tion due the Southern Pacific Company or
the bridge tolls is to be .deducted before the
division is made. Two cents for passengers
per mile is fixed as the minimum rate to be
charged on the Northwestern. Each party
agrees, Also, to keep Its equipment in good
order, pay the usual rate for car mileage,
settle its own loss and damage claims, and
send carload freight through without trans
Pall accounts are to be kept, monthly
statements rendered, and either company to
have access to the books of the other, and
all balances to be promptly paid, irrespec
tive of any individual claims submitted for
arbitration. If tbe presidents cannot agree,
then the matter is to Be referred, as pro
vided, to the Arbitration Committee.
Neither company is to give to anv .other
company aoy better terms or facilities in
any way than are offered to each other. At
?oints competitive between: the Union
'acific and the Northwestern lines the
traffic is to be divided as nearly as possible
in proportion to earnings and tonnage. Any
charges that may be made in the division
of rates, either by agreement or arbitra
tion, are to continue in force for six months
from the time tbe change is'made.

THE (JAERITJ30N INQUEST.
Ere Witnesses Describe the Eneaanter at
Hastings Station The Victim Was Al
lowed to BleeeTIo Death.
The inquest on the death of Thomas Gar
ritson, the lad of 17 years who was killed by
Edward Abbott at Hastings station, was
conducted by Coroner McDowell yesterday
afternoon. The first witness examined was
Hezekiah Garritson,-father of tbe deceased.
The boy left the farm at Harrietsville with
a younger brother, Harvey, to go to a coal
mine, where he had some friends, at 9
o'clock Sunday- morning. v He Teturned
after the family had retired Sunday night,
his jaw hanging down and his face bleed
ing. Susan Gamtson said that her brother told
her, when he came home, that he was on the
deppt platform at Hastings station, a mile
and a half below Harrietsville, when
Edward Abbott and Jnmes "Wells came
along. "Wells was cursing, and Abbott was
carrying a flask. "Wells called Garritson a
vile name, and when Garritson resented it
"Wells and Abbott both struct him, Abbott
throwing tbe flask, which struck him on the
cheek, the flask breaking and cutting his
John Garritson testified that be met bis
brother on Sunday evening at Hastings,
just before the fight occurred. He noticed
that his brother had been drinking. He
saw "Wells and Abbott approach, bnt was
engaged in conversation with another man
a short distance away, when he heard a
scuffle, and looking around he saw his
brother strike "Wells, and then saw Abbott
throw the flask which struck the deceased.
Harvey Garritston testified to having ac
companied his brother on Sunday and to his
taking several drinks. The scene at the
station platform, as described by him, was
that when "Wells and Abbott came up,
"Wells called the deceased a vile name, to
which he replied by striking "Wells a heavy
blow in the face with his fist. "Wells stag
gered, and Abbott, who had a quart flask
in bis band, tnrew it witb great force,
striking Garritsou on the cheek. Garritson
fell, the blood streaming from his face, and
"Wells and Abbott both jumped back, pull7
ing revolvers and exclaiming, "Stand back
or I'll shootl" The witness got his brother
np and took him home.
James "Wells, when sworn, denied much
of the testimony of the other witnesses, and
the Coroner had some difficulty in getting a
clear statement from him. He told, how
ever, of how he and Abbott had spent part
of the day in a "speak-easy" kent in a
shantv at Bridgeville, where they drank a
good deal of beer. Abbott bought a flask of
whisky, most of which he and the witness
drank while walking to Hastings station
Snnday evening. The witness spoke to
Garritson when they met at the station and
was struck in the face by him. Abbott
then threw the flask, which contained a
small quantity of whisky. "When it struck
Garritson it broke and Garritson fell. Wit
ness denied that he had a revolver or that
he called Garritson the vile name ascribed
to him by the other witnesses.
Prom tbe testimony it appears that a
brother of the deceased went to Bridgeville
Sunday night for Dr. Kidds, but tbe latter
refused to go to attend the injured man, be
cause, he said, he did not feel well. Dr.
Newcomer was then asked to go. bat he re
fused to go also, sending a solution which
he ordered applied to the wound. No doc
tor went near the young man until Monday
afternoon, and he had been bleeding pro
fusely ever since the woand was received
Dr. E. G. Hustler testified on the stand
that death resulted from hemorrhage, but
that the case had not been properly treated.
The witness said he had been called to at
tend the case on Wednesday, and arrived
about ten minutes before tbe yonng man
died. He had held a post-mortem examina
tion and found that the facial artery had
been severed, causing the patient to lose
control of his lower jaw. If ne had at
tended the case he would have tied up the
The testimony of a number of other wit
nesses was taken, after which the inqnest
was adjourned until 10 o'clock this morn
