WHILE ME. ST. JOHN IS ABSOLTED
AlHamm is out with a full alleged con
fession of the crookedness in that McKees
port boat race fiasco. He absolves St. John
from all culpability or guilty knowledge.
But oh, how his alleged confession, if true,
will blacken his own character, as well as
Gaudaur's and Teenier'sl He says the
"job" was for Gaudaur to win that Teemer
might bet that way and pay an old debt, but
that tricky Teemer played donble and was
beaten at it.

St. Louis, November 4. AL Hamm,
the Nova Scotia oarsman, has given np a
seething secret, that has been boiling in his
bosom for two months. The motive for
Mr. Htinm'i sudden desire to share his
knowledge with the world can be found in
a special to a morning paper from
Boston relative to the Teemer-Gaudaur race
towed at McKeesport last September. The
rent precipitated a disagreeable scandal,
and on the day ot the race there was a rumor,
botli in St. Louis and Boston, that
it was fixed for Gaudaur to win.
The odds here on the day of
the race were SO to 8 on Gaudaur, though at
Pittsburg Teemer was the favorite. The
race precipitated a fight, in which Teemer
and his brothers assaulted Hamm for alleged
fouling on the course, and the referee de
clared all bets off and ordered the race rowed
THEEE WAS AN TJGLT SCAKDAX.
This was the end of it, as far as rowing
went; bnt everybody began to talk, and
charges and counter-charges of crookedness
In the special from Boston, already re
ferred to, was a very compromising letter
from Hamm to Teemer, saying everything
was fixed and St John would furnish $3,000
to back Gaudaur, and the winnings should be
divided. In offering himself up for sacrifice
to-night, Hamm said:
"It is true. I wrote the letter, but Mr. St
John did not know anything about it I used
Mr. St John's name without authority, and be
never knew anything about the letter until to
day. Now I propose to tell the true story abont
this whole business. On February 26, while I
was at Oakland, Cat, with Gaudaur, Peter
son, O'Oonnor, and other oarsmen, I received
A LETTEK FKOM TEEMEK,
in which he proposed that I arrange a race
with Gaudaur. He owed me S263 at that time,
and promised to pay me If the race was a suc
cess. 'I want Gaudaur to win,' he wrote (and
I have the letter now in my possession; but I
don't care about giving up all its contents).
"Teem era reason for want.npGandaurto win
was that his friends in Pittsburg would back him
for about $3,000, and be asked me to raise the
same amount and take the bets, and he would
tben pay me what he owed. His words were:
If you pet the race on and get it going I will be
able to square up.'
"I laid the matter before Gaudaur. and he
said: 'We can't go to St John with any pro
position lilce this; we'll have to work it in some
"Gaudaur returned to St Louis, and I went
lip in Washington Territory with Lee and
Peterson, and rowed some races. Meanwhile I
received several letters from Teemer about the
'sure thine.' I returned bere in August and it
was then 1 wrote him th letter published this
morning, in which I used Mr. St. John's name
witt out his knowledce or consent
BOTH FOOLING SAIXT.
"Gaudaur told St John that lie would like to
be matched against 1 eemer, as be felt that he
could beat him. Mr. St John agreed to back
him if he showed good work, ana we settled
down to training. After four weeks Jake said
he was ready to show Mr. St John a
trial, and the course was staked and
Jake covered the three miles in 18:47.
There was nothing crooked about the
time cr the distance, and Mr. St John said he
would back Jake against any man in the world.
His best time, previous to that was 19:43. The
match with Teemer was finally made, and I
felt confident that Jake would win, no matter
what Teemer would do.
SAW IT WAS ALL UP.
"Several days before the race Jake rowed a
trial with Teemer, and beat him badly. This
was tough on Teemer. who intended to 'double
cross' us from the start Two nights
before the race Teemer Invited Jake and I
down to his house, to make what he called
final arrangements, though the arrangements
had long before been completed. He was
broke, and I had given him 150 to buv a boat
to row In, and we talked about tbat for a
minute. As we started to go Teenier said:
Hold on, boys, I have some .fine
blackberry brandy here that 1 want vou
to try.1 He poured out a glassful and Jake
downed his and said: "WelL that's the fun
niest blackberry brandy I ever drank.' I swal-
lowed only a conpie ol moutbfuls. A few
hours later we were taken deathly sicE. I ran
for a doctor, and, after pumping and examin
ing us. he said: 'you fellow s have been drinking
A DISINTERESTED WITNESS.
"Mr. Kickerson, of Boston, was with Teemer
when we were dragged. I told St John about
the drugging, but did not say where it occured.
I knew then that Teemer's object was to beat
us some way. When the race was coming off,
I advised Gaudaur not to row, as he was nof
strong enough; but he said he was strong
enough to beat Teemer.
"Teemer told me to go out on the course and
keep small craft out of the way, and the state
ment that I intentionally fouled him is not
true. I never toid St. John about the matter
because I didn't like to tell the whole story!
Teemer thought St. John furnished the moner
to take the Pittsburg bets; but he did not
That is the whole story of the race."
Hamm's manner and language was that of a
man telling the truth, and the storv shows, if
it be true, that "tricky Teemer was "beaten at
flu own game.

St. Louis. November 4. Mr. J. a. St John
writes a card to the Kfpublic zbont the charges
of crookedness in the last Gaudaur-Teempr
race. The publication of a letter purporting to
be written by Hamm to Teemer, in which
things are shown to be "fixed," is the subject
of Mr. St John's remarks. He says:
"My name is mentioned in the letter as being
a party of arrangement whereby a race was to
be Hied for Gaudaur to win, and that I was to
wager a large amount of money, a portion of
whleh was to go to Teemer. I desire to say that
I hare never, directly or indirectly, authorized
Hamm to write any such letter, or make a
proportion of any kind. I made the match in
good allh, as I have all other matches, and be

al been my custom to give the entire stakes

ence the split He thinks well of Kilrain as
a stayer.and said he delivered at least a hundred
more blows than John L. Mnldoon, who is
the picture of health, said one thing tbat
helped Sullivan to win the fight was the tactics
of Mike Uleary, who was continually worrying
Mitchell and Kilrain, by using profane
language and making threats. Mnldoon said
he did not think either Mitchell or'Pony Moore
would again return to this country. "I said I
would drive him out of the country, and I did
it" said Mnldoon.
Experts and Others Think the Wizard In
New Yobk. November 4. "Jake"' Schaef
ers ultimatum about the international billiard
tourneys published yesterday, in which he said
be would not enter the contest brought out a
heap of comment from the New York cracks.
Tbey laughed at tbe "Wizard's" accusation
that they were in the employ of the Brunswick-Balke-Collender
Company. There is, as a mat
ter of fact nothing to justify this assertion on
Schaefer'a part The cracks are also indignant
at the Western player's assertion tbat the bil
liard table manufacturers are insincere in their
talk of International tourneys. Maurice Daly
said tbat Schaefer'a ultimatum made It certain
that it was useless to waste anv more time tir
ing to concede things to tbe wizard. He does
not now believe that Bchaefer woold play in the
tourneys, even if the other players w ere to
agrte to play his style of handicap of a dis
count in points instead of balk-line measure

than to assert as he does in his interview, that

A good feat at walking was recently accom

THE ST0EI HE TOLD THE GRAND JDET.
What Ex-Policemen Bare to Say About the Strange
Waron With a Box In It
The ranch-sought Crohin witness Spell
man disappointed the prosecution yester
day by taking back what he had said be
fore the grand jury. His recollection of
a talk with Conghlin was very hazy. Ex
policemen testified that they had seen the
mysterious horse and wagon On the night of
May 4, and talked with the occupants of
Chicago, November 4. Edward Spell
man, of Peoria, the much-sought witness,
was the first to testify in the Cronin trial
to-day. He contradicted his testimbny pre
viously given before the grand jury, there
by disappointing the prosecution. He ad
mitted being a member of the United Broth
erhood, bat knew nothing about the Clan-na-Gael.
He was District officer of Dis
trict 16, embracing Illinois and Michigan.
Asked who constituted the executive body
now, he said he knew a few of its members,
and named Mortimer Scanlan, Lawrence
Buckley and Bonaqne, of New York.
Mr. Spellman identified certain corre
sDondence that had passed between himself
anu iieggs relating to bnsiuess or the order.
He said he met Beggs April 2$, and the
matter referred to in their correspondence,
viz., that the proceedings of the trial com
mittee had been read in a certain camp in
violation of the rnles, had been amicably
settled. He knew Dan Conghlin; who had
visited him with Kunze, bnt had had no
talk with him about Cronin. This was
IN BISECT CONTBADICTIOK
of Spellman's testimony previonsly taken,
and the witness was asked if he had not
swofti that Conghlin spoke to him of Cronin
and said that Cronin ought to be killed. He
admitted having so stated before the grand
jury, but said he had afterward sent his at
torney to Chicago to notify tbe District At
torney that he was mistaken. His attorney
being unable to find Jndge Longenecker be
(Spellman) went to Chicago and personally
notified him and the other counsel that if
they asked him thatqnestion he should have
to deny it in order to do justice to himself.
The following is the correspondence be
tween Beggs and Spellman in fall:
BEGGS LETTEE AND THE BEPLY.
Chicago. February 15, 1SS9.
My Dear Sir and Brother:
I am directed to call your attention to the
following subjects: First, it is charged that the
S. G. of the Columbus Club, at a recent meet
ing, read to tbe assembled members the pro
ceedings of the Trial Committee. Second, I
am directed to enter the protest of D. 20 against
the D.'s in Chicago electing or initiating men
until their names are presented to D. -SO and
the other D.'s for their consideration. The
oldest of communication has become a dead
letter, and since the formation of tbe central
basnot held a legal meeting smca its formation.
Good discipline calls for an Investigation of
the foregoing, which I feel you will attend to.
Fraternally yours, J. F. Beggs, S. Q. D; 20.
Don't forget our reunion February 22.
Peoria. III., February 17. 18S9.
Friend Beqgs Yours of yesterday to hand.
Contents carefully noted. Will you kindly
refer mc to what section of our law where I am
empowered to inflict a penalty on A. 8. G. tor
disclosing the proceedings of a trial com
mittee. Under tbe constitution I called
the S. G. and J. G. together for the pur
pose of forming a council. If they fail to per
form their duty I wonld like to know how I can
remedy the evil you complain- of. While I
admit tbat no person should be admitted in
Chicago unless his proposition should come
before tbe coucil or the D.'s in your city, on
accepting the position of D. O. I felt tbat I
would be able In my own way to affect
a reconciliation of our own people in
Chicago, but I must confess to you
that I am greatly disappointed. My posi
tion is this: That if any person
who is a member violated the law. he should
be tried as provided by our constitution. What
is the fact? Members who know a wrong go
around tbo street and go from one to another
ana talk aDont sucn oaense. Then they
report to Y., and tbeD. O. is a figure bead. I
will take no notice of any complaint unless
made to me, ana if I have authority under our
laws, yon may depend I will be on band. I
thank you for your kindness. And discipline is
our only safeguard. If you can see where I
can actl am at your command. My term of
nmce win expire tne ena oi tnis montn. and
God knows I am glad. I am disgusted with the
conduct of men who think they should lead tbe
Irish, people; but I think It is dangerous in
decent men to associate with such scamps.
Thank God proxies no longer prevail.
Fraternally yours, D. O. 16."
BEGGS' ANSWER TO SPELXMAN.
Chicago, February 18, 1SS9.
Hon. iCdward Spellman, Peoria, 111.:
Dear Sir and Brother Yours of tbe 17th
received. I have not tbe constitution before
me, and therefore cannot point out the action
that would cover the matter complained of;
nor am I prepared to say tbat the act men
tioned was a violation of any written law, but
that it was very unwise, and such conduct is
prejudicial to the good of tbe order, and no
man In his right senses will deny it is just such
acts that keep us continually In hot water.
Why, in God's name, if men are sincere, they
will be always doing it Tbe majority of our
men here believed the parties.
to be innocent of any criminal wrong.
and to have the charges made continually
that they are guilty creates bitterness
and ill-feeling, and tbe man or men who con
tinue to sing the charges are not the friends of
Irish unity. What good is done in continuing
the old fight? I confess I can give no answer.
If we are true men, as we profess, we will
rather conciliate than keep up a war which
can only lead to further discussions. Tbe rank
and file are sincere: they want peace, and the
time is not far distant when tbey will have it

The matter I wrote of I wonld let pass if I
could, but I was ordered to notice.it Person
ally, I think it better not to notice such things,
but I am only one. The men wbo have the

who are continually breeding disorder in their
ranks, and a day of punishment will come. I

HIS MEMOBY YEBY POOB.
Mr. Spellman was then cross-examined
by Mr. Forrest He was not positive
whether he and Coughlin had talked about
Dr. Cronin or not, but tbonght not. At
one time he had thought they did talk of
him, but on reflection he now thought they
did not During the cross-examination Mr.
Spellman was asked: "Did Beggs ever
speak with you about any charges against
Cronin in any case?"
''A great deal was said about Cronin, but
to place it upon any one man, or at any one
period, I could not do at this time."
"Was it not because of his organization of
"No, because he was always anxious to
prefer charges. He was a kind of an
agitator He was an honest man, bnt he
was not a bad lellow, if he could have his
own way. Is not "
Mr, Hines I object to making any such
statement as that. Dr. Cronin is dead and
cannot respond to any such charges against
"Were any charges made bv Beggs against
any individual in his official position as
"No, sir," answered Spellman.
A MOTION TO EXCLUDE TESTIMONY.
The witness went on to say, in response to
questions, that at the request ot Beggst the
District Convention in this city in February
last, Spellman read these letters to the as
sembled guardians. The defense moved to
exclude from the record of the testimony all
questions and answers in regard to what was
testified to before the grand jury. The
Court seemed to think that the motion
should be granted. Considerable argument
followed, and the Court finally said that
authorities might be brought in on the point
at the afternoon session.
The cross-examination was then resumed.
The witness was asked a number of ques
tions in regard to the object of the visit of
Kunze to Peoria with Coughlin, as to
whether it had any connection with Dr.
Cronin. Spellman said it had not, as fir as
he knew, although he had had no conversa-.
tion with Kunze there. The visit of Congh
lin, the witness had been told, had no con
nection whatever with Cronin. It was le
gitimate detective business, and a reference
of counsel led to the inference that it was in
connection with a fight between a Chicago
distillery and the Whisky il'rnst.
O'STJLLTVAN'S 'VISIT TO CBONIir.
Spellman was tben excused and John A.
Mahoney, a Justice of the Peace, was called
to the witness chair. He testified that he
was present at Coontz's Hall, in Lakeview,
in March last, when Dr. Cronin instituted a
camp of the Clan-na-Gael. Patrick O'Snlli
van. one of the defendants, was also present
and acted as doorkeeper. After the meet
ing adjourned O'Sullivan asked tbe wit
ness about Dr. Croniu's standing as a phy
sician, and receiving a favorable reply,
arranged with the witness to visit Dr.
Cronin with him to make an arrangement
to have Cronin care Cor his (O'Sullivan's)
men. About the middle of April they went
together to Dr. Cronin's office, where O'Sul
livan arranged with Cronin to take care of
his men in case ot accident for ?5 or p8 per '
mouth. O'Sullivan gave Cronin some of
his cards, saying that he might beoutot
town or sick, and tbat if he were wanted
under such circumstances, one of these cardB
would be Dresented.
At tbe opening of the afternoon session,
Judge McConnell said: "I have considered
the testimony in question of Mr. Spellman
since the adjournment of court, and X do
not think that part ought to stay there. I
am going to exclude it."
THE LAWYERS EABNESTLY OBJECT.
Mr. Hines We can show authorities sup
porting it in civil cases. It is settled law,
but still we make no resistance to the ruling
of the Court
Mr. Forrest "We would like to have the
The Court There is no occasion for au
thorities supporting the ruling of the Court
The Court has now ruled upon tbe question.
That part of the testimony of Mr. Spellman
and the questions ot tne state s Attorney,
applying to tbe conversation with Daniel
Conghlin. is excluded.
Mre. Addie J. Farrnr was tben called, and
testified as to a conversation which took
place between herself and O'Sullivan soon
after Dr. Cronin's body was found. The
witness said: "I had read in the papers an
account of the finding of the body of Dr.
Cronin. Then I spoke of it to Mr. O'Sulli
van. I said to him, was not it a terrible
murder? Mr. O'Sullivan said: 'Yes.' I
IT WAS SOMETHING FEABFOT
to decoy a physician away and murder him
in that manner. Mr. O'Sullivan did not say
anything for a few minutes, and then he
said, 'Thev say he was a British spy.' I said.
'Well, why shonld they kill him?' In a few
minutes I said again, 'Why shonld they
kill him, even if he was a spy?' Mr. O'Sul
livan said he gave away the secrets of a
secret order, and if a man did that he ought
to be killed; if he did that he had got no
more than he deserved, I said that if he

'Such m,en get thftir jnst deserts.' "
Sebastian Steib, an ex-policemsa of Lake
view, testified that he was on duty on Ful
lerton avenue, in company with Policeman
Biley, at about 11:30 o'clock on the night of
May 4, and 6aw a wagon driven past con
taining three men. There was a new trunk
in the wagon. John A. Smith, also an ex
policeman, testified tbat on the same night,
a few minutes after midnight, at the corner
of Frederick and Clark streets, he saw three
men drive north in a wagon similar in ap
pearance to that described by Steib and
others. There was
a ;box in THE WAGON
which looked like a large carpenter's tool
chest Two hours later the witness saw the
same rig, except that tbe box was no longer
in the wagon. This was at the corner of
Diversey and Clark streets, going south, or
toward the city. Patrick O'Shea, another
ex-policeman, of Lakeview, testified that he
saw a wagon going north on Evanston ave
nue at abont 1 o'clock in the morning on the
night of May 4. John May, a special po
liceman at "Edge water, testified that at
abont 1 o'clock on that morning he saw two
men walking east toward the lake, followed
Dy a wagon driven by another man.
The witness followed and questioned the
man in the wagon, who said that they
wanted to go to Chicago and were looking
for the Lake Shore drive. The witness told
him the drive did not extend that far north,
and when the other two men came back
from the beach the witness gave them direc
tions how to drive in order to reach Evans
ton avenue, their nearest route to the city.
The wagon had in it what the witness took
to be a tool chest
HE ALSO SAW THE WAGON.
Frederick Hayden, an ex-Lakeview
policeman, testified that he saw the wagon
at the corner of Diversey and Clark streets
at about 2 o'clock in the morning when
Policeman Smith saw it

Assistant District Attorney Baker, who
returned from Winnipeg last night, says he
has a great deal of confidence in Gillette's
story. "But what good does- that do?" he
said. "We can't get himdown here as a

McBae, of the Winnipeg police, will come,
because he has not been paid his bill of $340
for arresting Burke. McKinnon, Mills and
Heffer will come.

Unique and picturesque, the exhibit of
the International Maritime Congress in

what both it and the Pan-American dele

Boston, November 4. In the basement
of the big Mechanics' building is a huge sec
tion of the Erie Canal; at least it has that
appearance on its surface, with its float
models of every known cratt on the face of
the globe. In other parts of the building are
massed all the different inventions that have
bronght abont such wonderful progress in
the maritime world. To-day the doors veie
thrown open and the public was permitted to
see the first international maritime exhibi
tion that has been given in this country. It
was a unique and highly interesting ex
hibit, and Bostonians rallied in large num
bers to show their appreciation of the honor
of having such a show in their midst.
The opening ceremonies were elaborate.
Lieutenant Governor Brackett paused long
enough in his race for the Governorship to
start the ball a-rolling and Mayor Hart,
Hon. Orlando B. Potter and Senor A. M.

MUSIC FOB THE MABINES.
The Seventh Begiment Band, of New
York, played jolly sea airs from the deck of
a full-sized model of the Burgess' schooner
Qmckstep, which loomed up in tbe center
of the main hall. It is an exact reproduc
tion of the yacht as it appears above the
water line. The deck and its appointments,
the masts, rigging, etc., are all of tbe same
kind and quality used in the yacht She is
135 feet from tip to tip, or from jibboom to
end of main boom, and 90 feet to topmast
bead. The hull is 78 feet over all, and in
the construction of this craft alone 18 dif
ferent exhibitors are represented.
The Navy Department exhibits models of
naval ships, irom that of tbe "Old Iron

There can also be seen a large exhibit of
life-saving apparatus such as) mortars, life
lines, belts, lifeboats, etc., arranged by the
Massachusetts Humane Society, as well as
steam launches, pleasure boats," canoes, and
other small craft and machinery for their
equipment. Models of all the fine ships and
yachts built at various American ship yards
are shown, and much space is devoted to
steam and other appliances for steamships,
together with models of the ocean steam
ships (racers) of the various popular trans
Atlantic lines. .
Heavy ordnance machinery and appli
ances show what the United States is.doing .
in that direction. The United States Light
house Board has also an exhibit of one each
of every variety of buoys in use at the pres
ent time. Among the life-saving appliances
can be seen the Phillips life car, made of
iron and rigged so as to ply between wreck
and shore on a life line, with those to be
saved stowed safelv inside. General Oree-
ley's department is well represented by an
apparatus in working order.
WHAT THE CANAL IS HKE.
One of tbe most attractive features of the
exhibition is the grand canal in the center
of the hall. This canal, which is quadri
lateral in shape, is 565 feet in length, 12 feet
in width at the sides, and 22 feet wide at the
ends. It has a general depth of 4 feet of
water in it This canal will, during the
continuance of the fair, be occupied by
small craft of all sizes, from the Venetian

Lowell, Mich., November 4. A terri
"ble tragedy occurred this morning inVer
gennes township, Kent county. Haggai
Westbrook, a farmer, took- a hammer and
fractnred his wife's skull, and then went to
the room where his three small girls were
asleep and treated them in about the same
manner. He then went to another room
and attempted to do tbe same with a son,
but the son took the hammer from him.
Westbrook then ran downstairs, procured
bis razor and cut his own throat West
brook is dead and it 'is supposed the girls
cannot recover, bnt a little nope is enter
tained that Mra. Westbrook may recover.
Another account says the girls were in
stantly killed and that Mrs. Westbrook is
mortally wounded. Westbrook was in
financial difficulty and had become insane.

nothing to laugh at.
The breaking away from the National
League by the players seemed to them a
serious thing, and there was not as much
humor as there generally is at such gath
erings, bnt it must be admitted that there
has seldom been such an enthusiastic lot of
ball tossera together as this. They were
all sure that the move must be a success.
The men who represented the different
clnbs as delegates were: New York,
O'Bourke; Washington, Irwin; Indianap
olis, Andrews; Philadelphia, Fogarty; Bos
ton, Bronthers; Pittsburg, Hanlon: Chicago.
Pfeffer, and Cleveland, TwitchelL These
were not the only men in tbe meeting, by
any means, for any League man in good
standing could pass through the door, which
was guarded by Buck Ewing,
During the session delegates were ap
pointed to meet the backers of the new
League and form a new organization.
These delegateswere, with the exception of
Strieker, of Cleveland, Buffinton, of Phila-
aeipaia, ana wara, oi rtew xort, tne same
aa those that represented the Brotherhood at
PLENTY OF MONEYED MEN.
The backers of the new clnb for this city
are C. Van Cott, E. P. 3IcAlpin, E. B. Tal
cott and General Wallace. It is said that
they stand ready to put up any amount of
money that may be required to start, the
clnb. There was a little bad feeling on the
part of one or two outside moneyed men be
cause they were not allowed in the meeting,
and Al. Johnson, the Cleveland man, was
one of them.
Many rumors were afloat early in the day
as to the absence of some of the delegates,
and some players very confidently asserted
that there would be no meeting of tbe
Brotherhood, but instead, a conference with
the League members. This little pieee ot
gossip was exploded by John Ward, who
made his appearance shortly before 1 o'clock.
He stated that the annual meeting of the
Brotherhood conncil would be held, and
nothing else. "That opinion obtained from
Evarts, Choate and Beaman," said Presi
dent Ward, "is a bluff". It isa conservative
one, as you can see by the little 'it' that
frequently appears in its phraseology'
THE THREATENED INJUNCTION.
"What about the injunction that is threat
ened by Mr. Day?"
"Well," he replied, "it all depends on
what is done at the meeting. It may hold
good, it it is obtained."
Faatz, the first baseman of the Cleveland
clnb, said: "Who do the people pay 50
cents to see? Do they come tolook.atMr.
Day in the grand stand? Hardly. They
come to see John Ward, George Gore, Boger
uonnor ana ait tne otners wno oat ana eaten
the ball. Well, tbat being granted, there
are abont 80 men in the Brotherhood, who
comprise all the best ball players in the Na
tional Leagne. Every one of these men is
with us in this movement, ana we intend to
win. Tbe claim is made by the League
managers that the Boston clnb is the only
clnb that made money this season. Such a
claim is ridiculous. I am confident that the
Cleveland club cleared a profit of $40,000,
and that sum does not inclnde the profit de
rived from the sale of privileges. My esti
mate of the money made by the Bostons is
far in excess of $100,000. It is nonsensical
to say tbat
NO MONEY HAS BEEN MADE
by the managers this season. Is it rational
to suppose that the League men would start
in to make a stubborn fight unless there was
money in baseball for them? The argument
they make tbat we are reserved by virtue of
the contract signed last spring is preposter
ous. We have the assurance of Eobert G.
Iugersoll that such an argument is not worth
the paper it is written upon."
George W. Floyd, the Booter from Bos
ton, said he had a telegram in his pocket
from the Boston triumvirs, authorizing him
to hire Kelly and Bronthers for $12,500
each for the coming season. Manager Mc
Gunnigie, of tbe Brooklyn clnb, was abont
the -hotel, and expects to sign his contract
with President Byrne at once as manager of
the .Brooklyn club for the next season.
George Gore said to-day that the New
York players are dissatisfied with the divis
ion of gate receipts from the world's series.
"It was plainly stated," said he, "before
the series began, that we were to receive
one-quarter of the gross receipts, including
the receipts from the sale of grand stand
tickets. Instead of that, however, when the
settlement was made we received only one
quarter of the net receipts, or something
like $1,500 less than we shonld have re
ceived." SOME OF THE BACKERS.
Al Johnson, Tom Johnson and Chris
Grover are the backers of Cleveland, and
H. M. Love, of Philadelphia, Ben Hiltof
the Hotel Hilton, Harry Taggart, G. W.
and J. E. Wagner are among the backers of
the Philadelphia club. Adam and John
Forepaugh, George Allen, Colonel McCauIl,
Magistrate Abren and Fnilton Disston
have no connection with the Philadelphia
club. The Philadelphia meeting recently
was not held at Harrv Taggart's louse. It
was held at H. M. Love's residence, 1418
Diamond street. The men representing the
Philadelphia Brotherhood club are substan
tial businessmen, and their baseball grounds
are already selected, at Forepaugh's Park,
on .Broad street.
Wednesday the first annual meeting of the
Players' National League, as the" new
organization is called, will be held at the
Filth Avenue Hotel. There the final dispo
sition of clubs and players will be made.
Everything is virtually arranged, and the
only action will be to give the list official
sanction. It is definitely settled that Brook
lyn and Buffalo will take the place of Indi
anapolis and and Washington, and it is
stated that the players oi the clnbs -will be
distributed between Brooklyn, Buffalo and
Pittsburg. The fact that Ward will manage
the Brooklyn team is pretty well assured.
