THE PITTSBTniG- DISPATCH, SATUEDAT, NOVEMBER 9, 1889.
He Tells How tlie Association
AT THE ST. CLAIE HOTEL.
A Few Feature in Jhe Brotherhood's
LEAGUE MAGNATES VERY HAPPY.
They Think the Players' Scheme is Kearly
GEKEE1L SP0ETL5G KES OP THE DAT
Justice Thorner throws additional light
on the plana of the Brotherhood players. A
new plan to he adopted. He also tells an
interesting story regarding how he helped
to organize the American Association. The
League magnates jubilate over the abrupt
collapse of the Brotherhood meeting.
There are few men more interesting
talkers about baseball, and particularly its
historical features, than Jnstice Thorner, of
Cincinnati. Mr. Thorner was one of the
"braves' who stood with Mr. Lucas in the
establishment of the old baseball union, and
he was one of the founders of the present
American Association. It may be that
Mr. Thorner says many things that other
baseball historians will question and that
other lawyers he is a lawyer will doubt. Bat
he is a very interesting talLer when it comes
down to baseball, ana is an ardent admirer of
the Brotherhood movement.
Mr. Thorner was in the city yesterday ana
naturally was 1 nil of ideas and arguments in
favor of the new departure of the players.
During a lone conversation with the writer, he
said: "The venture proposed by tne National
Leagne players ought to succeed and will suc
ceed if the programme arranged is carried out.
I have just come from New York and'I think I
WHAT THE rSTEXTICWJS ABE.
I can name some of tbem, because I have been
solicited to assist in forming the new organiza
tion. Now, the first thing to consider in es
timating the success of the Brotherhood's
scheme is the part that the players will play in
it. As far as I understand each plaver is to
be prepared to make a sacrifice for its welfare.
That is if a player's salarv is fixed at so much he
Is to receive only a certain amount per month
to live on until money sufficient is received to
pay salaries in full Of course if sufficient
money is received from the start to pay all
that will be all right; but if there is a shortage
the players are expected to allow part of their
salaries to run on. This is the only way that
the new venture can be made a success, as it
can't be expected that capitalists will run all
the risk at the offset.
'In saying this," continued Mr. Thorner, "I
talk from experience, for certainly I have had
experience in baseball affairs. I think the
Brotherhood will succeed if it is rightly
cuided, because we started the present Amer
ican Association under discouragements a hun
dredfold worse than now surround the Brother
hood. Let me tell you how the American As
sociation was formed by a few of us in Pitts
burg, and then you'll see that, however small
the beginning may be, we never can tell what
the end may be. "Well, Horace Phillips,
THAT EESIAKKABLE HUSTLER,
conceived the idea to start up an organization
in rivalry to the National Leazue, and he wrote
me time and time again about the matter.
Finally we called a meeting at Washington,
and all who were present in the room at meet
ing time was Horace and myself and a little
boy who shined my shoes. We didn't lose
heart, but packed up and left.
We called another meeting at the St. Clair
Hotel, Pittsburg, and I brought on with me O.
P. Caylor. from Cincinnati, and another re
porter named Wiight. These two, Mr.
Phillips and myself were all the people
who showed un then and it really looked blue.
Phillip and 1 took a stroll into Diamond street
and there learned that a baseball crank named
AL Pratt was working in one of the mills, and
we found him. He told us of Denny SIcKnight
and he also was secured. We then held our
meeting, and as a starter I suggested myself as
Chairman and Air. Caylor. ve were so few
that I was compelled to ask the meeting to
Tote as I suggested.
"Then," Mr. Thorner went on to say, "we
were organized for all practical purposes and
I suggested that we have baseball representa
tives a: Louisville. Washington, Philadelphia,
New York and St. Louis to send me their
proxy as to where the next meeting should be
A DIPLOMATIC MOTE.
"We led everybody wired to believe that he
was the only one absent from the meeting, and
that caused an immediate reply. Among others
we wired Messrs. J. B. Day, James Mutne and
Jerry Scanlon. As a resnlt we had a rousing
meeting the next time. 1 remember that a Mr.
Appleton represented Mr. Day, and the former
held aloof at the meeting until be saw that
there was plenty of money behind the scheme.
However, we soon had plenty of money, and the
whole of America knows now that the Associa
tion not only started amid tremendous opposi
tion, bnt is now living, stronc. and ell."
Regarding the National League's threat of
enjoining players, Mr. Thorner said; "This was
tried in the old Union in Ohio ana failed. Tony
Mnllane violated a Union contract and went to
Toledo. Mr. Lucas, my friend, applied for in
junction against Mullane's plaving with-the
Toledo, and it was granted by Judge Connor.
However, the Supreme Court nf Ohio dis
solved the injunction and that ended the
matter. I therefore believe that a similar re
sult awaits any action on the part of the
League to enjoin their old players. I firmly am
of opinion that if rightly conducted the
Brotherhood scheme will succeed. But there
are many things to consider and the principal
,is the integntv of the players themselves.
iHowever, whyl mention the birth and progress
of the present Association is to show that a
small and uncertain beginning does not
necessarily mean failure."
SOME HAPPY MAGNATES.
Xengue People Pleased nt the Brotherhood's
israelii TELECCAX to mi BIBIMTClI..
NEW York, November 8. The National
'lieague men were happy to-day. In fact, when
they were spoken to about the Players' League
they would close one eye and smile. President
Day said that it was quite evident that the
backers of the new scheme did not care to put
their money in the venture without some
chance ot getting a return. He was under the
impression that the last of the Players' League
had been heard of, and that before another
meeting of the backers of the new scheme
could take place many of the players would
'see their mistake and sign Leagne contracts.
Bnt few of the players and backers remained
in town until to-da;. The Committee on Or
ganization had a short meeting this afternoon
at Nick Engle's, but all information as to w hat
was done was refused; in fact, they said that
nothing new bad been accomplished. As soon
as the meeting came to an end the delegates
that were left began to make their wav home.
jTheyhad nothing to say outside of the fact
that the prospects of tbe new League were just
as bright as ever.
MULDOON GETS 9IAD
(And Severely PnnUbea Delmura, tbe Greek,
Durlnc on Exhibition.
rSnCIAL TXLEORUt TO THE DlSrATCH.1
Haxtxmobe, November 8. Muldoon, who is
performing here this week, became very angry
last night during a wrestling bout with George
Delmars, better known as "Tbe Greek," and
the latter is to-day suffering from the effect of
the punishment he received. Muldoon had
offered tbe Greek J2 for every minute during
the bout as long as be prevented a fall. After
about five minutes he lost bis temper, and after
throwing bis opponent aronnd the stage for
.four minutes he got him "in chancery," and
held bim there for a minute and 20 seconds,
though tbe Greek begged to be let loose, and
said he would go down if allowed.
Tbe spectators, wba thought JIuIdoon's anger
was caused by bis inability to throw Delmars.
hissed loudly. In tbelr dressing room tbe
Greek admitted to Muldoon that he was not
trying to wrestle, but to delay the fall, to get
the 2 agreement be wal offered. The Greejr
was badly hurt. The fall took ten minntes. J
AL PRATTR VIEWS.
He Returns From New York and Talks
Abont the Brotherhood.
A G. Pratt returned from New York: yester
day, where he has been on private business and
also to make a few notes of the Brotherhood
Mr. Pratt, in answer to a few questions, said
that as things looked the new league seemed to
be a go. "But," said he, "the players came to a
sudden termination in their deliberations, and
that seemed to surprise everybody. I now
have grave doubts about any success that the
? layers can make of the affair. Of course, a
BvAf thnm wTin havm thufr own Interests TnnrA
) than those of anvbodv else at stake are nre-
sumably enthusiastic about it. For instance,
Jim O'Kourke remarked to me: 'Tell Nunick
his name is Dennis.' Now that may be all right
In its way, but really I don't see why the few
players now in New York who are now running
things shonld get their heads so inflated. The
number of capitalists present was wof ally short
of what was expected.
"However, as Mr. Spalding said, the sooner
the conflict comes the better. He said the
affair had been brewing for seasons, and would
certainly have to explode one way or other. He
really has no fear o( the result, because he it
certain that an enterprise of the kind will take
more capital than any of the supposed wise
men have any idea of . I can assure you that
neither Mr. Spalding or any one of the
League magnates who I have metis in the
least concerned about the affair. The League
meeting next week will go on just as if all the
old players were signed. Mr. SDaldifig cer
tainly thinks and is confident In the belief that
every player of the League of last season will
be prevented from playing with a new organi
zation, and that those who aid them in violat
ing their contract can be sued for damages.
Now let me tell you this, that the firm of
which Senator Evarts is a member, gives the
opinion that every player who signed the
League contract last season must remain with
the respective clubs next season if desired.
Evarts & Co. were paid ! 1,000 for that opinion,
and let no man say that a firm of that standing
would give an opinion contrary to their judg
ment for all the money there is in the Leagne.
However, the players, as we saw tbem in New
York, are more like millionaires than anything
else. They are, if anything, a little ahead of
the fashion. After all, they are launching out
on a business, and drawing others after them,
that is very, very experimental. I say, as a busi
ness man: Beware."

A GREAT SHOOT.
Dors' Contests Arranged by Some
Prominent Local Gun Experts.
There are undoubtedly some enthusiastic
patrons of the gun in this city, and probably
none are more energetic than Messrs. E. K.
Shaner. F. F. Davison, Jim Crow and Charles
Richardson. These gentlemeu have arranged
a two days' shoot to take place at Exposition
Park on the 13th and 14th of this month. Frizes,
in cash, aggregating $200, will be guaranteed.
On each day there will be eight matches. The
two principal shoots of the first day will be one
at seven live birds, entrance S3, and another at
ten live birds, entrance 10 On the second
day the two principal events will be similar to
the two named for tbo first day. Altogether,
the two days' shooting will be well worth see
ing. Already there are 950 live birds in the
coop for the event. Following are some of tne
trap shots who will compete:

He Thinks the Brotherhood Scheme Won't
Last Till Mny.
The Philadelphia Inquirer in its account of
the termination of the Brotherhood meeting,
President Stern, of the Cincinnati club, dropped
in to see bow things were moving two or three
times. When he heard to-night that the new
League had adjourned without perfecting a per
manent organization Mr. Stem said: "Last night
I was willing to. bet SCO to $100 that the Brother
hood would not last until September 1, to-night I
am prepared to bet f 100 to S50 that it will not last
until May 1." President A. G. bpalding, of the
Chicago club, stopped In front ot the Filth Avenue
Hotel to-nltrht. bo they are still going on, are
they?" said he. Well, hare yon heara of any
capitalist who has yet put a dollar Into the
scheme"" Mr. bpalding did not wait for an
answer, but sauntered away with his brother.
Ihe National League men are Jubilant to-night.
Ihcy regard the failure of the Brotherhood to per
iect an organization as a big flop, 'lhe absence of
capitalists from Brooklyn and Pittsburg Is com
mented upon, and they point with significance to
the lact that very little financial strength has been

PITT6BUEG HIGHLY COMPLIMENTED
Good Work That Host Certainly Shows In Stadyhjg
All the Figures.
It is pleasant to find the oft-repeated pre
diction fully verified, that, whatever criti
cisms might he brought to bear upon other
sections of flood relief work, the Pittsburg
Belief Committee's faithful performance of
duty would be borne out and made the
clearer by close scrutiny. Such is the most
prominent fact in the appended report.
The work of the committee appointed to
audit the accounts of the Pittsburg Belief
Committee for the sufferers by the Johns
town flood, was completed yesterday, and
will be found below. The work occupied
their entire time for two days, and was of
considerable magnitude. Treasurer Thomp
son was complimented on the accuracy of
his accounts. His work was continued long
after the the first fush that came ou the com
mittee, and, although some 600 was expend
ed in clerk hire and other expenses, this was
borne by the committee, and the fund unim
paired will all go to Johnstown. The report
A short time since the Governors of the
States of Ohio and Michigan and the Mayor of
tbe city of Chicago were invited and requested
by tbe Pittsburg Citizens' Association for the
Relief of the Johnstown Flood Sufferers to ap
point a commission to examine tbe accounts of

Auditing Committee, and Treasurer Thompson
also presented complete evidence of the accu
racy and thorough system that characterized
the disbursements of the money confided to the
care of the Citizen's Belief Association.
In connection with our indorsement of the
financial report submitted to us, it may not be
inappropriate to briefly refer to the history and
to certain of the prominent features of tbe
magnificent work performed by tbe Pittsbnrg
association, immediately alter tne nrst sad
news of the direful disaster that swept into
eternity thousands of lives, and that spread
ruin and desolation throughout the Conemangb
Valley, had been flashed across tbe wires, a
mass meeting was called by the Mayors of
Pittsburg and Allegheny to give expression to
tbe sentiments of sorrow universally felt
throughout the country, and to adopt immedi
ate and effective measures for the rescue and
relief of the suffering survivors.
GOOD PEOPLE SELECTED.
At this mass meeting this relief committee
was selected from among tbe leading and most
highly esteemed citizens of Western Pennsyl
vania. The gentlemen chosen to conduct this
noble mission of charity in almou every in
stance occupy positions of prominence in tbe
great industrial and commercial enterprises of
their city and their State.
It would bo superfluous to allude to this
fact where these gentlemen are so well and
favorably known. But as contributions have
come to them from tens of thousands in dis
tant parts of the country it is believed to be
not out of place to make this favorable com
ment. On the first of June, the day after the dis
after. the labors that confronted this associa
tion were of indescribable magnitude. Tbe peo
ple left surviving at Johnstown and elsewhere
in the stricken region were totally isolated
from tbe outside world. Railway and tele
graphic lines on either side of Johnstown were
severed and carried away for many miles in
tbe general ruin. As soon as communications
could be established in a temporary way this
committee at once pnshed forward provisions
for the sustenance of the living and coffins and
caskets for the burial of the dead, In every
way tbey djrected and performed the work of
relief with intense energy and most zealous
As soon as possible tbn General Committee
appointed subcommittees to organize, control
and guide the various departments of the dis-
Sensation of relief, such as the recovery and
ecent interment of the dead, the furnishing of
food and raiment to tbe 30,000 destitute sur
vivors, the clearing of tbe debris from the pub
lic streets and tbe erection of temporary
inciter ana oi permanent nomes. aii inis vast
work ot benevolence was faithfully and
thorongbly done. From tbe time of tbe advent
nf this committee at Johnstown no one has
been allowed to suffer for food or other essen
tial necessaries ot life.
In fine, tbe undersigned commission feel
certain that the sacred mission of charity con
fided to tbe Citizens' Association has been per
formed with a noble fidelity that entitles the
gentlemen composing this association to tbe
gratitude of tbe entire people of the Cone.
BiBgh Valley, and also to the thanks ot all
who sent their contributions to aid in relieving
the effects of this terrible calamity.

HITHER iND THITHEB.
Movements of Plttsbnrgm and Others of
General James A. Ekin, the well-known
Brigadier and ex-Pittsburger, was in the city
yesterday, and left last night for his home in
Louisville. He was here making the final set
tlement of his estate. On Wednesday last he
had erected a beautiful monument over the
graves of his wife and children, who lie in the
middle of tbe Soldiers' Cemetery near Louis
ville. Tho War Department made a special
donation to the General of a 40-foot lot, to
which he had tbe remains of his family re
moved from tho Allegheny Cemetery. General
Ekin yesterday presented to tbe Reformed
Presbyterian Seminary, on North avenue, Alle
gheny, two large pictures which he imported
irom bcouanu. xney were lhe name 01

Tbey were received and hung with appropriate
exercises. Addresses -were delivered by Dr.
McAllister, Bev. Sproul, the venerable Dr.
Thomas Sprout, D. D. 'Wilson and General
Senator John Sherman, of Ohio, came in
last night on the Fort Wayne express, and made I
a bee line for the Union station news stand. He
secured copies of all the papers in sight, and
then made another Ohio run for bis sleeper.
When Tax Dispatch man cangbtup with hira
he said he had no time to talk about tbe result
in Ohio and the causes which led to Foraker's
defeat. One might just as well have gotten as

The Pittsbnrg and "Western Ballroad,
though not yet a transcontinental or trunk
line, as some persons have perennially called
it on paper.is branching out with many prom
ising improvements. Its connections for a
short line to St. Louis are at last assured.
With the purchase of all the property on
the bank of the Allegheny river, between
Willow Grove and Millvale, the Pittsburg
and Western EaiJroaJ Company contem
plates a number of extensive improvements.
They will build a large roundhouse, turn
table and water tank on tbe propertv, and
will make tbe yard the terminus for all
through freight business. The trains will
be made up and broken at that point, and
only local stuff will come into and depart
from Allegheny. The improvement will
cost over 100,000. Work was begun some
days ago improving the ground. The north
end of the Junction Bailroad bridge is
right in the center of it, and it will make a
first class transfer yard for Baltimore and
Ohio freight. The Pittsburg and Western
is now receiving and sending to the Balti
more and Ohio 500 to 600 cars per day
which pass over the Junction bridge.
The improvements will all have
to be built on piles, as the
ground was never filled in. The piling is
now being put, down ana tne ground filled
up. The roundhouse will be built on the
same plan as the' Pennsylvania Bailroad
engine honse at Twentv-eitrhth street. It
will accommodate about 60 engines.

The new freight yard will hold about 2,

probable that the shops will receive some

The company yesterday received four
new locomotives. They are large mogul 50
ton engines, and were built at Borne, K.
Y. They have been in service about one
year, and were purchased from the St. Paul
and Duluth road. The company have also
ordered five new narrow gauge locomotives
from the Baldwin Locomotive Company, of
Philadelphia, to be delivered January 1.
fThe Pittsburg Locomotive Company is also
finishing seven new heavy locomotives, to
be delivered this month. In addition to this
power they have also ordered 22 engines to be
delivered before March 1. This makes 38 lo
comotives altogether, costing over a quarter
of a million ot dollars. Several hundred of
the new gondolas will also be received
this month, 900 of them are being
built in Indianapolis and 600 at Minerva,

THE "WINTEB SCHEDULE.
A new schedule will go into effect this
month. Several of the trains will be
changed, but the latter will be of minor im
portance. Major W. C. Mabley, Chief En
gineer of the Cleveland and Western road,
at Delphos, O., was in the city a few davs
ago, and stated that the work on the exten
sion of their line to the Pittsbnrg and West
ern would be begun late this winter. This
is the road that is owned by the Cal
lerr and Semple heirs, and was
projected by J. D. Callery and William
Semple. It is now a narrow gauge line,
running from Delphos to Carev, 56 miles.
The road will be made a standard gauge
next spring, and a line built from Carey to
Chicago Junction, thence to Orrville, where
connection will be made with the P. & W.
At Delphos it will connect with the Toledo,
St. Louis and Kansas Citr line to St. Louis.
This will give the P.& W. an almost
straight line to St. Louis.
SHOBT LINE TO ST. LOUIS.
The new line, which has been surveyed,
will cut off 40 or 50 miles of the present
route between Akron and Chicago Junction.
Their present St, Louis outlet is via the
Wabash at Toledo. This is too roundabout
and a shorter line will be secured. Only 70
miles of the new air line will have to be
constructed. It will parallel the Port
Wayne for a considerable distance, and be
tween here and Delphos it will be 15 miles
shorter. It will open up a new country,
mention of which was made in The Dis

When General Manager McDonald took
hold of the road six months ago he was sub

account of his economical policy by discharg

the worst kickers now see that the newman
agenient is bringing the road up to a paying
basis.- One of the officers of the road stated
yesterday that the best evidence ot the road
making money was the large orders they
have recently placed for rolling stock and
the improvements thev have under way.
These will cost very nearly $1,000,000.

A MYSTERIOUS MUEDEB.
The' Horrible Discovery Made by a Wan
dering Hunter In the Woods.
St.Pato, November 8. Yesterday Theo
dore Delaney, a hunter, found a man's hand
near Lake Johanna, and the Coroner to-day
investigated, the result being tbe discovery
of a much mutilated body and indications
of a sensational murder. The corpse was
that of a man about- 5 feet 10 inches, and
probably 30 or 45 years old. The top of the
skull had been sawed off, there was evi
dence of scalp wouuds, the left arm was
badly fractured and two of the upper ribs
were crushed in. Beside the hole
where the body was dumped was a
small hatchet, rusted from blood stains.
Coroner Quinn found the body almost two
feet beneath the ground covered by a piece
of carpet. Beneath the body was a common
tar barrel, burned inside. The probability
is that the body of the man was carried in
the barrel, and the ghouls, being disturbed.
hastened the work by throwing in the barrel
first and the body after. The body had been
cut in twain and the front and lower part
doubled up together. Upon the head of the
barrel was nailed a cleat upon which had
been carved "A Traitor."
The Coroner, was of the opinion that the
body had not been buried more than two
months. But one plausible theory has been
advanced. It will be remembered that a
bloody row occurred at & Swede picnic at
Bass Lake something over a year aeo.
There was considerable excitement at the
time at the mysterious disappearance of a
young Swede named Andrew Johnson, who
was at the picnic, and who was said to have
participated in the fight However, the
body has evidently not been dead so long as
