tErECIAl. TTLZORUI TO THX SISFATCH.
Keav York, November 6. The prelim
inaries in the formation of the Baseball
Players' National League hare been com
pleted, and the new League, of which we
hare heard so mnch, is a fact There is now
no Roing backward by the players, they
have put both feet in it, and hereafter their
watihward must be "never give in."
The first meeting of the new League and its
backers took place to-day. In fact the meeting
is still in session, and it is likely that the whole
business will not be finished until next Satur
day night, if it is finished then. To-day's ses
sion was a long and hot one, and but little was
accomplished. The few facts gave one an idea
of the cast iron laws that were being formu
lated to bind the players to their new man
agers, so that in time to come, or rather when
the moneyed men get their money into the
League, the players cannot at their own free
will be released from their new club.
PLATERS AJfD BACKERS.
At to-days meeting all of the clnbs of the
new League were represented by players and
backers. The conference which was held at
Nick Kngle's, on Tuesday, resulted in a general
understanding between the players and the
backers sothat when the men came together
this morning they were able to begin work at
once. The players began to arrive at an early
hour but there was a notable de
crease in the number in attendance
compared to the meeting on Monday.
At this meeting one player ana one backer
represented each club as follows Philadel
phia, A O. Bufflnton. player, Henry Love, cap
italist; Boston, Dan Brouthers, plajer.Dr.Bart
lett, capitalist; Cleveland, John Strieker, player,
Al Johnson, capitalist; Buffalo, Arthur Irwin,
player, John Rowe, capitalist: Chicago, Fred
Ffeffer, player, John Addison, capitalist; New
York, John Ward, player, E. B. Talcott, capi
talist Ned Hanlon represented Pittsburg both
as a player and capitalist, and Ed Andrews did
the same thing for Brooklyn.
SOME GOOD SUPPORTERS.
The capitalists named were by no means the
only ones there, for in the room were M.
bhner. of Buffalo: Colonel McAlpin, of New
York: C. Van Cot, also of New "iork; John C.
Haines, C B. Corey, George Wright, J. B.
Hart, and General Dixwell, of Boston;
C. G. Fitzgerald, of Buffalo; Girard A
Wallace, of New York, and a Mr. Auten, of
Chicago. In addition to the above named, all
players that were Brotherhood members in
1 standinc were entitled to attend the meet-
The whole morning was spent in talking
,r a constitution and by-laws, and just before
ae adjournment for dinner at 3 o'clock a com-
mttee was appointed to draw a contract. This
omtaittee consisted of John Ward and Colonel
IcAJpin, of New York; Arthur Irwin and M.
chir. of Buffalo, and H. M. Love, or Phila-
elphia. Judge Beacon was selected as legal
dviser of the committee. It is understood that
layers, if they so wish, can sign individual
TISI KEEFE EXPLAINS.
.jecretary Keefe was seen during the after
noon He said that the word "reserve" would
be erased from the old League contract, and
then it would be used as a basis on which to
work out a new contract for the Ball Players'
ell, Mr. Keefe, what about the transfer of
plaversT" asked the reporter.
"Oh. that will be easy enough," said be, "for
the Central Bord will bave lull control of
that.. 1 here are not likely to be any changes
during the playing season, and any change in
the personnel of a club must be made before
tbe opening of the season. This will be to pre
vent the transfer of pitchers, for instance from
a strong club to a weak club."
"Then, if you want to leave your club, what
roust van do?"
"Obi I would simply write ont my application
for a change, giving a reason for it, and file it
with tbe Central Board. That, ox course, w ould
or would not secure the change, just as the
board saw fit."
At 11 o'clock last night tbe delegates t-rew
tired of waiting for the Contract Committee to
report, and the meeting was adjourned until
this morning. 'I he Contract Committee also
adjourned. Xhe action of the Brotherhood in
not adoptinga constitution and by laws created
considerable comment amonc tbe outsiders
around the corridors. It is understood that the
contracts between the players and backers will
be for from three to five years. Al Johnson
was the chairman and John Morrill the secre
tary of yesterday's meeting
PALMER O'KEIL'S DOUBTS.
There was considerable gossip about the
hotel, and from what the players said drinking
players will be dealt with in the most strict
J. Palmer O'Neil, of Pittsburg, said that he
did not see how the players could get a suffi
cient amount of money to build grounds and
fit out tbe clubs. He was under the im
pression that the players had been carried
away by enthusiasm, and they would see their
mistake before next spring. President John
B. Day, of the New York- club, has refused to
say anything regarding his plans for next sea
son. But it is known that he has three schemes
under consideration, one of which will be put
in practice. That there is some wire-pulling is
shown by the fact that both Tim Keefe and
George Wright would both like to furnish the
base balls to be used by ihe new League; ana
while they ofter to furnish the balls at a low
figure, it is rather certain that they will not get
tbe contract, simply because a Philadelphia
firm has offered to furnish them free of charge.
Tbe latest rnmor to-night was that John
Morrill, of Boston, would ie the President of
the new League. It could not be ascertained
what capitalist would back tbe new Brooklyn
Club, bat at a late hour it was rumor that
Gerard Wallace, a New York stock broker,
was tbe man. Mr. Wallace was at the hotel lor
a short time to-night, but refused to be inter
viewed. Harry Wright has been offered the
HAD PRIVATE CONFERENCES.
Some Statements That John Ward Diode to
It is now definitely known that John M.
Ward and Mr. W. W. Kerr, of the Exposition
Park, bad several conferences relating to the
.Brotherhood scheme during the recent base-
11 season. Ward on all occasions was eager
to impress Mr. Kerr with the fact that the
scheme was a go. Hanlon also met Mr. Kerr
several times with tbe same object in view.
At one of these conferences Ward, in re
sponse to a question by Mr. Kerr, somewhat
outlined the principles on which the new clubs
will be conducted. He stated that players
will be disciplined just as they are now. If
any of them get drunk or act in any way in
jurious to tbegame tbey will be dispensed with.
This rule, it is understood, will be rigidly en
forced. hpeakingof stockholders on one occasion
Ward said: "We don't require all tbe stock of
the Pittsburg clnb to be bought by Pittsburg.
en1 as there are gentlemen in New York wjio
will buy some of it. We want two or three
stockholders in Pittsburg, however." Ward
went on to say that one gentleman in New
York bad been disappointed in not getting
stock in that clnb ana was willing to Invest in
jl'ittsburc stock. It is understood that tbe
gentleman in question is the one referred to in
A eentleman in a position to know whereof
bespeaks stated yesterdav afternoon that the
plaj en hare favorable impressions about Cin
cinnati. He went as far as to say that at one
time it was thought a Brotherhood club would
be planted thert; but Ward was somewhat op
posed to It for fear the Association might think
the Brotherhood was trying to injure it. Ward
intimated to Mr. Kerr that notning would bo
done to injure the Association clubs if they
did not interfere with tbe Brotherhood. It is
further stated that the Brotherhood officials
have sounded the leading players of the Asso
ciation, and as a result of a consolidation of
the League and Association the leading play
ers or the latter will join the Brotherhood or
ganization. The gentleman who gave the
writer this information vouches for its truth.
Ed Swartwood was told yesterday by people
interested in the Brotherhood to keep himself
in condition for next season, as it is likely his
services may be required by the new league.
He States That Haulon Accepted the Local
President Ntmick, in speaking of the man
ager for bis club next year, said yesterday af
ternoon: "I still refuse to believe that Hanlon has de
serted us, and I won't believe it until he has
notified us. Why just before he went to New
York we agreed on terms for next year. He
accepted the terms as satisfactory, he of course
to manage and captain tbe team. He has
never gone back on his word, and I cannot be
lieve that he will ignorothe engagement until
he says so himself. He even went so far as to
suggest the releasing of two players whose
names I won't mention just now, and in his
suggestion also stated that one player could
next year do the work that two have been
doing. This would be a great savinc and we
arranged to act on the suggestion. However,
if Mr. Hanlon means to go back on his prom
ises, we will get another manager, ana certaimv
will try anu get one or. ine ueau

Iowa Democrats came so nearly carrying

they missed their opportunities. Senator
Allison is not yet certain that the next Leg

rSPXCUL TELIQCAil TO TBE DISPATCtI.1
Des Moines, November 6, The Demo
crats of Iowa have been jubilant all day,
bnt to-night they are fighting mad. They
are kicking themselves and kicking each
other not because of what they have done,
but of what they did not do. They have
carried the entire State ticket by 7,000 ma
jority. The vote for Horace Boies may ex
ceed that figure, but there is little indica
tion that it will fall below. Some of the
candidates will run slightly behind Boies,
but each man thereon is safely and surely
elected. The result yesterday is really the first
Democratic officer the "State has seen since
1854, a period of 35 years. Having now a
taste of victory after this long fast, wbat the
Democrats are dissatisfied about is that they
did not capture the Legislature. When the
Democrats, several years ago, after the Re
publican partv had espoused the cause of
prohibition, had begun to show
SIGNS OF EOBDST HEALTH,
threatening the capture of tbe Governor
ship and the, Legislature, the Republicans
perpetrated a scheme of-gerrymander, and
fixed, as they supposed, the Legislature for
ever safely Republican. But the land
slide of yesterday shows they needed every
precaution Districts, supposed to have
been strongly Republican, succumbed to the
Democratic hosts, until to-night the Re
publican State Committee only claims tbe
Legislature by three majority on joint bal
lot, and are quaking in their boots lest that,
too, will be wiped out, and Allison will be
lelt at home.
This is what makes the Democrats mad.
Had their foresight been equal to their
hindsight, Iowa would have sent a Demo
crat to tbe United State Senate. There was
practically no effort made to capture or
gain seats in the Legislature on the part of the
Democrats. They regarded the Legislative
contest as simply hopeless, and no special
effort was made to capture it, or even to
make gains therein. The returns show
A OEEAT MANY CLOSE DISTRICTS
which could have been captured with little
eUort, tbree of them being in this county,
where the Republicans pulled through with
from 40 to 100 majority. The Democratic
committee did not even have a list of the
legislative nominees, and no attention what
ever was paid to this campaign.
The result, under such circumstances, is
simply startling. Mr. Allison can thank
his stars for this careless Indifference. If he
pulls through at all it will be owing to the
fact that the Democratic managers deemed
any effort to defeat him a hopeless one. But
that the Dubuque Senator does not feel that
he is perfectly safe is shown by the fact that
he has been in constant communication with
Chairman Pray since his political future
began to beclouded with the prospect of
defeat- To-day the two have actually kept
the wires hot.
HABO TO GIVE UP.
The Republican managers have been slow
to yield the State. As late as this after
noon they have sent out bulletins claiming
Hutchison's election. All such rumors are
groundless. There is absolutely nothing
upon which to base them. At 8 o'clock this
evening returns complete from 76 counties,
and the remaining 13 estimated as having
voted as tbey did two years ago, show the
election of Boies and the entire State ticket
by 7,000. There is no reason to donbt these
13 counties v ill not show gains proportion
ate with the 76 heard from. If they do, the
majority will be increased probably to 10,
000. Nothing can be surer than the complete
and overwhelming success of the Democ
racy of Iowa in Tuesday's election. The
causes leading to the result are not difficult
to locate. Prohibition is tbe chief one.
The revolt of the Farmers' Alliance against
the alleged railroad record of Hutchison is
another. The tariff question has not been
without its effect. The low prices of farm
products has had an influence.
A COMBINATION AGAINST THEM.
There was a combination of circumstances,
all tending to work against tbe party in
power, in tbe cities tne gains were made
up on the prohibition question. They were
large. Cedar Rapids, Dubuque and Sioux
City show Democratic gains of over 1,000
each. In Keokuk, .Burlington, Davenport,
Clinton, Des Moines and Council Bluffs the
gains were almost as great. In North
western Iowa, among tbe Granger counties,
the percentage of gains held up close to
those of the cities.
The majority of Republicans charge the
responsibility of defeat to prohibition, and
openly declare that they will advocate the
adoption of a high license by the new Legis
lature. This will irritate the Prohibition
its and stimulate the third party advocates
to marshal their forces, and threaten the
party from another quarter. To pursue
their theory of prohibition further will con
sign them to perpetual defeat. To repudi
ate it is to invite as certain disaster from
Thus the Republican party, after an un
interrupted rule of 35 years, finds itself de
feated, disheartened, and confounded with
obstacles of so serious a nature that it is
doubtful indeed if it recovers in time to
save the electoral vote of the State in 1892.

THE PITTSBURG r DISPATCH;
Tbe Jadre Who Defeated the Tamer Fac
tion Gives a Fall Account of the
Trouble Peace Has Been Re
stored for the Present.
Louisville, November 6. The follow
ing letter hns Been received here:
Haklan Court House, Kr., November 1
During tbe list three weeks there has been
a great deal of trouble in Harlan county, an ac
count of which has been given in the columns
of different newspapers all over the country,
and I want to say hero that tne reports sent out
have been greatly exaggerated. As 1 think
the war in this county is now over,
for the present, at least, I
deem it an act of justice to
myself as an officer and to the law-abiding ele
ment of tbe citizens of my county, to state a
few facts to the public In regard to the recont
trouble here. On the evening of October :19
it is claimed that Finley Smith shot at John
Howard with tbe Intention of killing bhn. I
do not know whether it is true or not, as I was
at home, six miles from town, when tnis is said
to have occurred, but be it as it may. Instead
of Johu Howard, who is a brother of the noto
rious Wilson Howard, waiting for the author
ities to deal with Smith according to law, he
sent word to Wilson, his brother, who was se
creted tf mues irom town, to come auu ueip
him wreak revenge on tbe citizens of Mr,
Pleasant for the wrong hd claimed Smith had
Consequently Wilson Howard was seen the
next day only three miles below town with a
posse of seven men, and in tbe evening of the
same day another gang of 25 men were seen
naulnfftnv. nn .kali, wqv tn Inln Wilson
Howard and his crowd at tbe mouth of Poor
Fork, only one mile from town, and Benjamin
Spurlock, who is the acknowledged leader of
the Wilson-Howard allies, sent word to town
by Mrs. Louisa Bailey, wife of Countv Attorney
Bailey, for Bailey's and T. a Ward's families,
who were near relatives to the Spurlock crowd,
to get out of town, for they intended to take
possession of the Court House and fight it
out. Spurlock then joined Wilson and
his crowd. I led a posse of 34 citizens,
summoned to assist me In the quelling of this
trouble, and to capture Wilson Howard, If pos
sible, on Tuesday morning. I made an attack
upon tbe gang of desperadoes who were forti
fied in a portion ol KM. Howard's dwelling
house, and a fight ensued, in which one of the
Howard men was killed and four wounded
and one disinterested man slightly wonnded.
The Howard partv then fled in utter confusion,
leaving their dead and wounded for me to care
for, which I did to tbe best of my ability. The
Howard party then retired to Martin's Fork,
where I followed in a few days. On this raid
I went to Martin's Fork. When I came to the
month of Mill creek I divided my forces, send
ing one crowd up the main river, l taxing tne
otlier and going up Mill creek in search of the
Howard party which I suspected was secreted
at or near W. T. Hall's house.
The crowd that I sent no tho river found
William Clem. Sr., and L. D. Halt, syinpafcizers
of the Howard gang. Tbey started to run
when the officer of mycrowd commanded them
to halt. They would not stop and my men fired
on them, killing Hall and capturing Clem.
Clem and Hall were both old experienced
schemers, and had figured very conspicuously
in the killing of John Cawood, who was a good
citizen and a wealthy farmer of this county.
As I bave 37 warrants in the hands of a con
stable against Spurlock and his men for tbe
murder of John Cawood, and he has asked for
peace, I will say if he will surrender to the
authorities. I will protect him and his men, and
see that they are tried bv a disinterested court.
As it is reported that "Wilson Howard and
William Jennings, his associates in crime, have
left this country and probably gone to parts
unknown, I hope peace is restored andbnsiness
will revive. Wilson Lewis,
Judge of Harlan Court House.
A PETITION TO HARBISON.
He i Asked to Devise Some Relief for the
"Washington, November 6. Mr. Ed
ward Otis Hinkley, of Baltimore, Secretary
of the American Bar Association, and Mr.
J. Hublev Ashton, of "Washington, de
livered to President Harrison to-day, a
letter prepared by a distinguished com
mittee in behalf of the association,
setting forth the great accumulation
of the business of the United States Su
preme Court, asking a strong statement of
the urgent necessity for some measure of
relief. Secretary Hinkley, in presenting
the letter, told the President that the com
mittee had only one request to make of bim,

TO THE EXfENT OF $400,000.
Basis of the Settlement Just Made by the
Cotton Oil Trust
WITH ITS PRESIDENT AND SECEETAET,
Who Admit That They Iked Uoro Than That or the
Foods cf the Trait.
President Flagler and Treasurer Moss, of
the Cotton Oil Trust, have agreed to pay the
5400,000 needed by the trust to recoup -its
losses. The Committee on Reorganization
reported in favor of the compromise, and the
report was adopted.
tSrECIAT. TEI.Ean.UI TO THE DI3FATCII.1
New York, November 6. The facts
at the bottom of the sensational rumors
that have disturbed the holders of American
Cotton Oil Trust certificates were made
public at the adjourned meeting of the
certificate holders to-day. Before stating
those facts it should be remarked
that they were known to only a
very few people until last Friday,
when suspicions as to their existence were
aroused by the figures of the annual report,
and by the explanation ot those
figures offered by certain of the
trustees who had not it that
time been able to probe the matter. They
found upon investigation that the dis
appointing character of the report was due
to losses and shrinkage in values in handling
the products of the trust and those of its
EXTENT OP THE DAMAGE.
Further investigation conducted in con
nection with the Committee on Reorganiza
tion, appointed by the certificate holders at
their meeting on Friday, revealed
the fact that the fnnds of the trnst
hnd been drawn upon to the extent
of over $500,000 in connection with opera
tions in the certificates in tbe stock market
The official statement' regarding those opera
tions that was submitted to to-day's meeting
by the Committee on Reorganization in
connection with its report, is as follows:
To F. F. Olcott, Esq.:
Dear Sib As counsel for the American
Cotton Oil Trust we have been instructed by
tbe trustees to make the following report to
They bave examined tbe affairs of tbe or
ganization, and find that the annual report
contains a correct statement of its affairs up to
August SI, 18S9, the close of tne fiscal year.
In tbe conduct of tho business it has
been the custom of its executive officers
to utilize the American Oil Company, of New
York, as a finance company, through tbe
medium of which they have been able to facili
tate their financial arrangements. Tbe presi
dent and treasurer of the trust, for the purpose
and with the intent, as they state, of maintain
STRENGTHENING ITS" CBEDIT,
have deemed it necessary or desirable to sup
port the price of the certificates in the market
bv conducting certain trust certificates ac
counts in tbe name and for the account
of tbe American OU Company, and with
out the knowledge of the trustees of
the trustor tbe company these accounts are
now entirely closed, with a loss to the company
of $527,511 StiL Messrs. Flagler and Moss, who
alone, as officers, inaugurated and managed
these accounts, bave appeared before the
trustees with their respect! vo counsel, and while
disclaiming legal responsibility in the matter,
bave frankly expressed a desire to make a
substantial contribution toward tbe same, ag
gregating the sum of 250,000, of which amount
Mr. Flaglerwill contribute $150,000 and Mr.
Moss, 100,000. This leaves the net loss 277,511,
and the trustees recommend that the matter be
adjusted on tbat basis.

ance of their respective estates.
It may be added" that both are known
to have been so sanguine regarding the
property they were managing that they
bought largely of the certificates, on margin,
and have recently sustained heavy losses in
THE PLAN ADOPTED.
The committee's report contained the
substance of tbe letter, with the state
ment that the net loss of $277,
511 had been charged off. The plan
of reorganization proposed was to issue
to the present certificate holders common
stoctc ot the American Cotton Oil Company,
ot New Jersey, to the extent ot 60 per cent
of their holdings, and 6 per cent non-cumulative,
preferred stock, to the extent of
25 percent of their holding!. These opera
tions will require an issue of
$21,092,000 of common stock, and 510,546,000
of preferred stock, being a total of $31,638,
000, asainst $42,184,000 at present. It is pro
posed to make the issue ot preierred stock
$15,000,000, which would leave a balance in
the treasury of the company ol $4,414,000.
The report was unanimously adopted, and
the reorganization committee was continued,
with full powers to complete the reorganiz
ation. It is understood that both President
J. H. Flagler and Treasurer J. O. Moss
have tendered their resignations, but no ac
tion has been taken upon them.

SPECIAL TELEOHill TO THE DISrATCIt.1
New X oek, November 6. If a man with
a spark of spirit had heard said of him some
of the things which 50 gentlemen at Del
monico's vigorously applauded this after
noon there might have been a tragic
internmtion of the Dnsiness of the
day. ""Wrecker," "liar," "contract
breaker" snivelling hypocrite" were some
of the epithets hurled at the fair name of this
good man by some of his wicked
associates in the ownership and
management of a business enterprise.
The meeting was composed of stockholders
ot the Fifth Avenue Transportation Com
pany, of which Colonel Shepard is in at
least negative control, and the gentlemen
who attended were heartily in sympathy
with President Ely Goddard in the con
troversy which had already reached a white
The object of the meeting seemed to be
more to give tbe exasperated stock
holders an opportunity to free their
minds upon the subject of Colonel
Sbepard's conspicuous piety in the
management of their affairs than to adopt
any definite plan for defeating the plot
which they believe has been made against
their property. At all events the
meeting took no iormal action beyond
coming to a tacit agreement to canvass tbe
stockholders thoroughly and to wrest the
control from its present hands at the annual
meeting on the 18th instant
Fly Goddard, the President of the cor
poration, gave the meeting a lively descrip
tion of the Shepard regime. As President,
his hands hnd since been tied by the new
directors, who all did Colonel Shepard's
"The matter came to a crisis," explained
Mr. Goddard, "when Colonel Shepard
finally said to me : 'If you are not ready
to do as I say, I would rather have your
resignation. I am the captain of this
ship and you are only the pilot.' I told
him I would consult with the stockholders
before resigning." The responsibility for
tbe financial difficulties of the com
pany Mr. Goddard placed entirely upon
Colonel Sbepard's shoulders. "We made a
contract with Colonel Shepard to discon
tinue tbe Sunday stages in consideration ot
his furnishing a $200,000 stable on or
before May 1. He has failed to keep
his contract. Now if this company could
put on 100 stages and run them seven days
in the week, it would pay ample dividends.
Our stages earn $12 to $13 daily except dur
ing the three months in summer when peo
ple are out of town. 'If we run 30 stages
daily it will cost nearly $12 each, but if 100
are run it .will cost only $6 or $7 each."

AUSTRALIAN WILD BUFFALOES.
Vast Herds That Hnve Sprang From Ani

The Perth Western Mail, says that very
few Australians are aware that certain
parts of their own country (Northern Aus
tralia) have vast herds of buffalo (bos bnba
lus) careering over its plains and wallowing
in its shady pools. The Sydney Mail, states
that the animals are massive and heavy,
with splendid horns, and afford sportof
sufficiently dangerous a nature to possess
charms for the most daringhunter,a wounded
buffalo being one of the most dangerous
animals known, if not the most, his great
weight, prominent horns, and splendid
courage making him as well respected as
The first buffaloes were landed at Port
