Several false rumors relating to baseball
affairs are exploded. Indianapolis will stay
in the League and Kilroy has not signed
with the Boston Brotherhood Club. Han
Ion left for Cleveland to confer with John
eon about Pittsburg matters. There is a
boom in local sports.
Amid all the conflicting reports and
rumors flying around about the proposed
intentions of Indianapolis, it is important
to know that the proprietors of that club
mean to stay in the League. Yesterday
President Nimick stated definitely that both
"Washington and Indianapolis will stay and
that there will be ten clubs. He said: "I

and his team will be with us and so will 'Walter

President Brush returned to-day. He talked
freely regarding the recent League meeting.
We will have a club in Indianapolis next
year;" said he. "Just who will constitute the
club we, of course, cannot tell yet. However,
there is now nothing to indicate that we will
sot have a good strong club. I do not think
there is any possibility of Indianapolis being
crowded out bjithefWashington club being sold.
President Hewitt told me that he intends to
remain in the League, and I feel confident that
he has no intention of selling. Tbere is a much
greater inducement for the weak clubs to stay
In the League than ever before. Wo aid not
get all we asked for at the meeting, but we got
enough to benefit us very materially. By the
addition of Brooklyn and Cincinnati to the
League we have in the circuit six of the best
cities of the country. Indianapolis will profit a
great deal by the adoption of the rule giving

recently to the effect that 1L Kilroy, or the
Baltimores. had signed with the Boston Broth
XETTOf's fax.se Report.
Arthur Irwin gave that report out to an As
sociated Press reporter. Last evening The
Dispatch representative at Baltimore was
requested to question Kilroy on the matter,
and the following reply was wired:
Matthew J. Kilroy, the star twirler of the
Baltimore Baseball Club, whom the press dis
patches announced as havinz signed with the
Boston Brotherhood Clnb on Saturday, spent
the best part of to-day in this city. He came
on from Philadelphia to see Manager Barnie,
but that gentleman was over in Washington.
"You can tell the people of Baltimore." he
said, "that I have not slimed any contract with
the Brotherhood, and the telegrams sent out to
that effect are absolutely false. You know me
well enough by this time to bet that I wouldn't
make any break like that without telling Mr.
Barnie all about it in advance."
BIB. BYRNE EXPLAINS.
i He States a Few Thing Aboct His Club's
5 NewYoek, November 18. President Byrne
P felt like talking to-day. and some of his re
fi marks were as follows: "I think the admission
t of the Brooklyn club in the League is a credit
or able and, in fact, one of the best mores the
- Brooklyn club has ever made. The very fact
that Brooklyn is now on a par with Chicago,
Boston, New York, Philadelphia and the other
league cities, it is only proper to say that the
result or our labors is extremely gratif ring.
"In reference to the action of the St. Louis
clnb I have but little to say, other than that I
consider it very small business on the part of
Von der Abe. If they were displeased with
the work we didwhvdid they not elect others
to the offices held? The positions were elective
offices, and they had a perfect right to choose
men who would suit them better than we did.
It looks mean on their part that they should
wait until we had left the Association before
giving out their silly story of an alleged deal in
the Bushong-Milligan matter, in which both
catchers were accused of agreeing to sell out a
certain game for a sum of money agreed be
t What makes the affair, or at least the un
v warrantable action of President Von der Ahe,
1 more remarkable, is the very fact that the As
sociation paid me a check, for SlOOwith which
to purchase the pennant after the usual form.
Von der Ahe was there, and If he had any
grievances or there were any reasons why the
money should not have been paid, why did he
not announce them to the meeting? He did
sot take any such step, and for that reason I
aay that Mr. Von der Ahe chose an unwarrant
able course in making his claim that a conspir
acy as entered into by one of our men. Mr.
Bcshong is a reputable player, and his honesty
has never before been questioned.
As to tne statements afloat that the Brother

Priddy nod McClelland Slay Bon Again

Tho echoes of the Friddv-McClelland race
were numerous and Interesting yesterday.
Several times it looked probable that these two
runners woula be matched again for $1,000 a
side, bnt nothing definite was done. However,
the discussion caused speculation on other pend
ing events, and also caused arrangements to be
made for one or two other events.
The McClelland party met the Priddy repre
sentatives and the former as a finale of the
long talk offered to match McClelland to run
Priddy a mile and three-quarters for 5500 a
side or two miles for $1,000 a side. Neither of
these offers was accepted, Priddy's represent
tative claiming that his man was only a half
mile runner. However, it is not unlikely that
Priddy's backers will be prepared to match
him against McClelland for a race of a mile
and three-quarters. Theseassn of the year is

FARRELL IS ANXIOUS.
The Pittibnrscr Says a Few Words Abont
Pat FarrelL the local aspirant to the middle
weight championship in pugilism, is still hope
ful that La Blanche will consent to meet him.
Yesterday afternoon Farreil said:
"La Blanche demands a big amount of money
to fight. Of course be is in a position to make
that demand, and he is probably right. But I
think if I can get $1,000 as a stake or a bet, and
if the California Athletic Club will make it
$5,000, there will be no reason for La Blanche
to refuse to meet me. President Fulda says
that La Blanche has a right to demand a big
stake, and he. President Fulda, asks if I have
sufficient reputation to command a big purse.
Well, we'll find $1,000 to show that we think I
can defeat La Blanche. I think I can defeat
him. If he can win $5,000 by defeating me I
think he ourht to ficbt. If he won't ficht for a

BAD F0I1 THEIR SIDE.
The Defense in the Cronin Case Gets
Bold of Witnesses Who Give
SOME MOST DAMAGING TESTIMONY.
Three of the Accused Seen in a Saloon Act
ing Very Mysteriously
ON THE KIQHT OP THE MUEDEE.
Hew Points Brought Oat and Pmionsly Told Stories
"Witnesses for the defense confirm the story
that Cougblin, Kunze and O'Sulliran were
seen drinking together on the night of Dr.
Cronin's murder. At the time the accused
were talking in low tones and acting mys
teriously. Chicago, November 18. In the Cronin
trial this morning, after some unimportant
testimony, Peter Kock, who lived near the,
Carlson cottage, was called. Mr. Kock said
he had known Eunze fire years, that Kunze
had worked for him and boarded with bim.
The witness had a talk with Thomas Lynch,
the distiller, in regard to Kunze in April.
The prosecution objected to the introduction
of his conversation.
Mr. Forrest maintained that he must show
why Kunze changed his name. "What he
proposed to prove was that in reference to
the talk about Kunze now is the talk about
Kunze at the time of the explosion of the
bomb at the distillery last year; that
Thomas Lvnch introduced him to Coughlm,
and he and Coughlin together went first to
Coughlin's house; that Coughlin
, -WAITED UP AHT ABOUND
that house for the purpose of meeting
Kunze, that he met Kunze at that house;
that he gave him, in the presence of this
man, the papers delivered them to Thomas
Lynch Lynch has the papers; that Kunze
told him he had another paper, that the
next day Lynch and Coughlin went up to
this house to see Kunze; this man drore
Kunze out of his house and told Kunze
there was a man out there going to arrest
him; that Kunze left and went to the South
side; that Cougblin kept following him.
The witness then told in detail the story
outlined by Mr. lorrest. iuinze got into
trouble around his house, and that the
keeper of a little drrgoods shop threatened
to hare him arrested. For this reason
Kunze left his house and changed his
Captain Schaack was next examined. He
was questioned as to Livery Stable Keeper
Dinan's description of the man who got the
horse on the night of the murder. He re
luctantly exhibited the notes he had taken
ot the description. Captain Schaack, in
his direct examination, said that Dinan's
description was given in the presence of
Coughlin, and chiefly by way of coinciding
SUGGESTIONS FROM COUGHLIN.
One of the suggestions was that the man
wore a stiff hat. On cross-examination the
State sought to show that subsequently
Dinan said the man wore a soft hat pulled
over his eyes, and that Captain Shaack
failed to call Dinan's attention to the dis
crepancy, but the Court rnled it out.
Then there was a straggle over an attempt
by the State to show that Captain Shaack
was not a hostile witness, by showing that,
at the time of the interview, in which Dinan
described the driver of the white horse, he
relied -?ore npon the statements of Congh
lin than he did upon Dinan's. Finally, the
Court admitted this, and the witness testi
fied that he had a good deal of reliance in
Coughlin at that time.
James Hyland, a freight handler, was
next examined. He testified that he and
his cousin Jeremiah called on O'Sulliran
about 7 o'clock on the evening of May 5.
They took supper with O'Sulliran, and on
leaving between 9 and 10 he and his cousin
and O'Sulliran went to a saloon near and
had two glasses of sherry and cigars.
THE ACCUSED SEEN TOGETHER.
This testimony Was brought out for the
purpose of cbntradicting the testimony
given by Niemann, one of the witnesses for
the State, who swore that he saw Coughlin
and Kunze with O'Sulliran drinking sherry
in the same saloon about 10 o'clock the
At the opening of the afternoon session
Jeremiah Hyland took the stand and cor
roborated the testimony of his cousin. The
witness took a nosition beside Kunze in or
der that the jury might judge as to the sim
ilarity between them. This witness' testi
mony, however, was clearer and more
definite than that of his cousin, who pre
ceded him. He identified the saloon by, its
location and by its interior appearance, and
gare its street and number as 188 Ashland
avenue. This is the saloon owned by
Nehman, and the evident object of the testi
mony of the cousins, who it appears have
just been discovered by the defense, is to
break the force of Nehman's testimony.
His eridence was
OP A VERV DAMAGING CHARACTER.
He swore that on the night of the murder,
between 10 and 11 o'clock, O'Sulliran,
Coughlin and Kunze came into his saloon;
that while there they talked together mys
teriously and in low tones, and that they
drank two glasses oi sherry and took a cigar
The testimony of the Hylands was intro
duced by the defense for the purpose of dis
crediting this, and showing that it was
O'Sulliran and the two Hylands who were
in the saloon on the night oi May 5 instead
of O'Sulliran, Coughlin and Kunze on the
nicht ot May 4.
Ex-Detective Michael "Whalen, who was
Dan Coughlin's partner when they were
both on the police force, was the next wit
ness. He testified that he arrired at the
'East Chicago arenue police Btation at about
730 o'clock on the night that Dr. Cronin
was murdered. Coughlin was there at that
time. The witness was asked by counsel to
tell the story of the evening and proceeded
WHERE COUGHLIN TVAS.
"Next thing I remember I went into the
station, and looked to see if there were any
reports. I did not go outside the station
until 10 o'clock well, I did not leare there
until 12 o'clock. Coughlin was with me
when I arrired at the station and I may say
that I saw him all that evening. I saw
him after I went in and stayed in a while,
and then I went outside. I saw him np to
10 o'clock, when I parted with him; be
tween 9 and 10. 1 don't think he was out
side of my sight at all, because I was not
out of the station myself."
"And about how long an interval was it
since you had seen him prerionsly?"
"Oh, it may be a half an hour."
On the cross-examination an effort was
made to show that the witness testified be
fore the Coroner's jurv and told Captain
Schuetvler and others 'that he did not see
Coughlin after about 7 o'clock that night,
THE -WITNESS DENIED IT.
The fact was brought out that the witness
and O'Sulliran are first cousins, and that
his brother, Tom Whalen, and his wife keep
house for O'Sullirau.
Desk Sergeant John Stift, oftheEast Chi
cago avenue police station, was the next wit
ness. He testified that he knew Michael Bren
nan, who was Police Lieutenant at the East
Chicago avenue station; that Brennan, on
May 4, had been promoted to clerk at head
quarters. Witness on that night was in the
police station. He reported at half-past 8.
"After the roll call," he continued, "I
went out with a section of the men and saw
they were on their beat. Then I came back
to the station, changed my uniform and was
leaving to go to my dnty ibr the night, when
I met Officer Michael Whalen and Dan
Coughlin outside ot the door of the station.
This was about 9-35 o'clock. I inrited them
to take a drink with me at the next saloon
to (he station; we went into the saloon and
they drank each a beer and I took a,cigar.
I paid for it, and stayed for fire or ten min
utes and talked abdut Brennan's advance
ment, and then I went away."
"Ditf'you see "Dan Coughlin again that
"1 did not."
The cross-examination was very search
ing. It brought out that Stift had traveled
a beat with Whalen many years and that he
(Stift) had not mentioned his meeting with
Coughlin and Whalen to anyone except
Captain Schaack, to whom he reported 'it
some days after Conghlin's arrest.
AN IMPORTANT POINT
regarding Stilt's eridence was his state
ment that the morning after seeing Coughlin
and Whalen together was the morn
ing on which he had read an
order from the Chief of Police regarding
inquiries at lirery stables regarding the
mrsterious "white horse" in the case.
This, it is claimed by the prosecution to
night, weakens the value of the alibi. Tne
cbjers order, it is asserted, was not issued
Sunday morning, and Stilt, it is argued,
must hare seen Coughlin not on the night
of May 4, but on the night following.

A ICYear-Old Girl Abdacted Before the

Carry Off Alice Jackmao, nud

rErXCMX. TELIGEAM TO Tint niSPATCttl
St. Louis, November 18. Where is
Alice Jackman? That is a question that is
worrying a great many people here, ifiss
Jackman was abducted in broad daylight
this morning from in front of the residence
of W. H. Brouthers by six men. The kid
naping Occurred at 930 o'clock, and was
committed before the eyes of Mrs. Bronthers
and her niece, Miss Myrtle Hunt. The
house in front ot which it occurred is just
across from Lafayette Park, in a fashiona
ble and thickly settled neighborhood.
Beside Mrs. Brouthers and her niece numer
ous other people saw the men grab hold of
the girl and bear her away,
Alice Jackman Is 16 years old, though
rather small for that age. She was walking
from the house to' the family barouche of
Mrs. Brouthers, standing in front of the
place, When six men, who had stepped out
of a closed carriage, seized her and dragged
her to their rig, which drove up to the
curb and then drore rapidly off with the
men and the fair prisoner. Before taking
her the men had endearored to drag off Miss
Hunt, who started for the barouche before
her, but another man in the party cried out
that she was the wrong girl, and they re
leased her and seized Alice Jackman.
The kidnaping, which created a great
deal of excitement in the neighborhood, is
the outgrowth of a fieht now being waged
in the Probate Court for the possession of
Alice Jackman. She is a niece of the de
ceased wife of Mr. John G. Taylor, ot the
Bichardson-Tayior Drug Company. When
her parents died ther left an estate amount
ing to about 530,000. Mr. Taylor is the
giri's guardian, and she has lived in his
family for five years. Eecently she ran
away from Mr. Taylor's and went to the
Woman's Humane Society, where she
charged her guardian with cruelty. The
Lsocietv placed the child in the hands
of Mrs. Brouthers, one of its mem
bers, to hare her care for it until
they could investigate the case. After an
investigation of the matter they came to an
agreement with Mr. Taylor to place the
girl in a convent at Normandy. When
they went to Mrs. Brouthers for the child,
however, she refused to surrender her, and
said she would fight the matter in the
courts. On the 6th instant she brought the
girl to the Probate Court, where Alice
asked that Mrs. Brouthers be made her
guardian. The case was set for hearing this
morning, and Mrs. Brouthers and her niece
were just about to leave for the court with
the child when she was kidnaped.
Mr. Taylor denies that he caused the ab
duction, and no one appears to know where
the girl has been taken or who assisted in

The Bratilian Delegates Take Ho Part in the Pro
ceedings of the Assembly.
The Pan-American Congress held its first
business session yesterday. The committee's
report, making recommendation of matters
to be brought before the Congress, shows
that subjects of great international import
ance are to be discussed.
Washington, Norember 18. After a
recess of orer six weeks the delegates to the
International American Congress were
called together at 11 o'clock this morning
by Secretary Blaine, tne presiding xfficer.
Mr. Blaine sat at the head of a long table,
around which were seated nearly alt of the
delegates to the conference, the Brazilian
delegates being the only notable absentees.
The first business In order was the read
ing of the minutes of the last meeting,
which was also the first, and this had to be
done in Spanish as well as in English. The
next was the perfection of the organization

the selection of a presiding officer.

offered by Mr. Henderson, the President ap
pointed Messrs. Bomero, of Mexico, Qnin
tana, of the Argentine Bepublic, and Cool
idge; of the United States, a committee to
receire and report upon the cre
dentials of the delegates. Then Senor
Quintana mored the appointment of two
Secretaries. He wanted two, in order
that the English and Spanish-speaking
delegates might be equally represented. He
believed that erery utterance should be
made in both' English and Spanish.
Some ot the delegates feared that con
fusion might result from the incumbency of
two secretaries, ana alter alscussion the
proposition was allowed to go oyer until the
next session, the conference meanwhile
yielding to Senor Qaintana's wishes to the
extent of selecting delegates Dr. Guzman,
of Nicaragua, and Dr. Zegara, from Pern
to act temporarily as secretaries and until
some permanent provision be made.
THE COMMITTEE'S REPORT.
The gentlemen named immediately took
their places beside the presiding officer, and
thereafter all motions and remarks were
duly translated, a proceeding which natur
ally consumed considerable time.
Delegate Cornelius Bliss next presented
the report of the Committee on Committees.
This committee was composed of -Messrs.

EXECUTIVE OFFICERS CHOSEN.
Delegate Henderson sought to have a per

18PICIAI. TZLXGBAU TO TUX StSPATCO.1
Cincinnati, November 18. G. J. Mur
ray, attorney of B. G. Woods prior to the
exposure of the ballot box forgery, makes a
public statement this evening, in which he
savs that Woods should be sent to the peni
tentiary, and relates bis connection with
the case. Murray says:
One day during the latter partjof the sum
mer Woods came to my office in a great hurry,
and asked me to prepare certain papers In con
nection with the Ballot-box Manufacturing
Company. Woods said he mnst hare them
that afternoon, as be was to go to Colambns. to
see Governor Foraker, who was Interested In
the new compa-ny, and he even showed a dis
patch from the Governor which said he wanted
him (Woods) to coma up In regard to the mat
ter they had been talking about. There was
nothing to do bnt sit down and go at it. Woods
wroto mo a hasty draft of what be wanted, and
which is now known as "contract 1,000," and
indicted it to my typewriter in legal phrase
ology, and got bim off on bis train for Colum
bus. He told me that ho mnst get to Columbus
that day. with bis paners; for he was to get the
Smoke Inspectorship for his work. I told him
the Governor didn't have the Smoke Inspector
to appoint. Well, that was all right, he said;
influential men were to intercede, or bad inter
ceded for him.
I know Woods to be an enthusiastic but
clumsy liar, and so gave little heed to his
claims, but when in a dar or two the Commer
cial Gazette, which had been calling Woods a
rascal and worthless fellow.all at once changed
its tune and said he was a man of good habits,a
G. A. R. man, etc,, I concluded I bad been
mistaken, and I became convinced of It when l
saw the announcement of his appointment as
Smoke Inspector. In the meantime Woods had
returned froni Columbus, and appeared con
siderably disturbed. He told me he had been
ordered to Washington to eet the oric-lml m.
Lpers, but he knew he could not get them. If
was at inn time unaonDteoiy that ne conceived
the forgeryscheme. He bad Campbell's signa
ture. He got the office boy to rule tne lines on
the paper. He went to tracing tbe names on
tracing paper against the window. Mr.
Millward came in about that time,
and saw him bungling away, and told blmtow
he could do bis tracing with a stylus. Well,
Woods did so, but being clumsy with the pen.
asked Millward to fill In those names for him.
Millward did itnot knowing what they were
for, and then Woods skipped to Columbus.
Some of those names were written in witbout
having anything to eo by, simply rank forgeries.
Butterworth's and Sherman's names were, I
know, rank forgeries, written by the aid of
One of the singular things is that Halstead
would not believe the paper a forgery until be
was given a practical proof that those names or
any name could be so forged, and Mr. Hal
stead's own signature was so handled right be
fore his eyes. It was then that he gave in.
Woods refnses to see me, but the above are
the facts. Woods' motive I don't know. That
is the only unknown chapter In the affair.
WHY QUAY IS FOE EEED.

rsrxciAL tzCeqbah to the dispatch, i
VVashcigton, November 18. There has
been some surprise expressed at the activity
ot Senator Quay in the Speakership con
test. It leaks out to-day that it grows out
of theGilkeson-Ha:t controversy over the
office of Solicitor of Internal Bevenue. It
will be remembered that Gilkeson was a
candidate for the position of Deputy
Commissioner of Internal Bevenue,
last March, but was induced
by the friends of Captain George Wilson,
of Ohio, to withdraw, on the assnrance that
the Ohio delegation would join Gilkeson's
Pennsylvania friends to secure for him the
Solicitorship. Quay agreed to this, and
"Wilson was appointed subsequently, when
the appointment of Alphonse Hart for the
Solicitorship was announced. It will also
be recalled that tbere was quite a rumpus
over it,and Quay accused Senator Sherman of
unfairness. Sherman exensed himself by
alleging that he had no knowledge of the
understanding, and it was finally saddled on
At that time Quay threatened to eet even
with McKinley, and he bas been here now
for a week, trying to throw the solid vote of
the Pennsylvania delegation against Mc
Kinley. Whether McKinley really had
anything to do with the "deal" alluded to is
not known, but it is understood that he was
very active in behalf of Mr. Hart's selection
for tbe Solicitorship. Gilkeson was later
appointed Controller of the Treasury.

Philadelphia, Norember 18. At the
weekly meeting of the Methodist Preachers'
Association to-day Bev. Dr. Boche, of
Brooklyn, N. Y., spoke about the decline
of Methodism in New York City and Brook
lyn. He said that every church in New
York, from St. John's to One Hundred and
Eighteenth street, now looks for mainten
ance to the church societies "We are in a sit
uation bordering on despair," he said. "Try
as we may, employ missionaries and Bible
readers, go among the people and use erery
endeavor, it is impossible to get a congrega
tion." "In Brooklyn," concluded the" speaker,
"the church orer which I preside was en
deavoring to consolidate with two others
when I became pastor. When X was in
Philadelphia it was not consolidation, it
was multiplication. This state of affairs is
not the fault of the ministers engaged in the
work in these two cities, for I hare filled
my pulpit with the most able preachers, and
the body of the church has not been halt
filled with the audience. There is no use
trying. Employ erery device, you cannot
secure a congregation."

NarlgarlaB Make Low Kates Railroad
Men Don't tike Heavy Kalaa Peea
HarKlea of Skippers.
The continued rains have made it possi
ble for the packet companies to take out
considerable freight, and, as a consequence,
some railroad officials are in a disgruntled
frame of mind. J. A. Hall, freight agent
of the C. B. & P. Bailroad, in talking to a
Dispatch reporter, said:
"The packet companies are undoubtedly
taking a large amount of freight from the
railroads, and to long as they have the
water in which to float their boats, why
shouldn't they? The shippers, when water
is low and the boats can't run, come to the
railroads and say: 'Here, your rates are en
tirely too high. We must hare lower rates
if we are to compete with other markets.
This Is particularly true of glassware, lamp
chimneys and nails. The roads make rates
just as low as they possibly can and the
shippers seem satisfied. But, Iol along
comes a spell of wet weather, the rivers rise,
and the railroads and their concessions are
forgotten. The shippers, with their minds
on the few cents to be saved by river, forget
all about the regularity of our traffic, and
the care taken inhandling freight, and sub
mit to usage from the packet companies
that would cause them to howl lond
and long if it came from the roads.
Why, not long ago I saw a lot
of nails In kegs lying on the
wharf waiting for a boat to pick them np.
The boat did not come, but a heavy ram
did. Now, if a railroad company had ex
posed those nails in that way a suit for dam
ages would have been the result. But the
Bhipper was satisfied, not oaly to hare his
freight exposed to damage, but to wait for
days, probably, for a boat to take It away.
Shippers also nave an exaggerated idea of
the capacity of these boats. The idea of one
boat carrying 16,000 boxes of lamp chim-

reporter. He says: "We are not dependent
upon heavy rains for water to ran our boats;
in fact, too much water is as bad as too little
with us. In regard to shippingl6,w0 boxes
of lamp chimneys, I can tell you that one of
our boats can take even more, if necessary.
A box of chimneys weighs only 60 pounds
and we can carry 1,000 tons of freight. It is
the bulk of this class of freight that bothers
the railroads, bnt it does not bother us."
