Opinions About Glasscock's
Objections to the
PLATEBS' JJEW LEAGUE.
Hanlon Says Ko Keceipts Ko Salary
AL SCASDEETl'S VIEW OP IT.
The reasons of Glasscock Jor deserting the
Players' League hare caused considerable
talfc among baseball authorities. Hanlon
says the statement of no receipts no salary
is true. Secretary Scandrett adds his
opinion. John M. "Ward failed to secure
McPhee. Sullivan may fight Jackson for
a $15,000 purse.
Jack Glasscock's reasons for deserting the
Brotherhood caused some interesting dis
cussion a local baseball circles yesterday.
The reasons which were given by Glasscock
in Cleveland were as follows:
"I have had all the experience I want in de
serting the League," be said, "and am going to
stick by it now through thick and thin. The
Brotherhood is a failure already. I have
signed five members of the presentlndianapolis
team already, and I know of 20 other League
players now under contract with League clubs
for next season, Uytho 1st of January there
will be a stampede from the Brotherhood. I
have one of tbe Brotherhood contracts in my
pocket now. It was sent me by Ward, with a
request tbatlsicnit and return to him. I
haven't done it and do no: intend to, but if I
should it would not hold mo legally. It is an
"My salary is placed at $3,030, and I am to be
assigned wherever Ward sees fit. Moreover,
that salary is to be paid out of the receipts of
the games. No receipts, no salary. Count Jack
Glasscock out on that deal. It amazes me that
any sensible player will permit himself to be
made a tool of by the men back of this move
ment. I hare but a few more jears in which
to play ball, and I intend to take no chances,
but earn all the money I can now and put it
aside for some other business. It's not a mat
ter of sentiment with me as much as dollars,
and that is what we are all in baseball for."
Ed Hanlon was asked his opinion regarding
the statements of Glasscock, and said: "I
don't know of any contract that Ward f o r
warded Glasscock, but I do know that I was
requested to visit Glasscock at Wheeling and
take a contract with me.
GLASSCOCK'S GOOD CHANCE.
"1 went to Wheeling prepared to give Glass
cock as much for next year as he had last sea
son. Indeed, I intended to give him $4,000
rather than lose him. I further intended to al
low him to be manager of tbe Pittsburg club
in my place, so that his position would be no
worse than it was in Wheeling. In view of
these facts I don't think it is true that Ward
wanted him to sign for 53,000 and to go to any
club selected for him."
"Is the statement of 'no receipts, no salary,'
made by Glasscock true?"
"Why. that is trne, but some explanation is
needed. We have or will have a capital stock
of 20,000 out of which new grounds will be laid
out and the salaries for April paid. Then we
will commence to get receipts and all will be
well. Bnt even in dfSculties those of us inter
ested in the scheme will do prepared to make
some sacrifices. However, there is no fear on
thai point. Glasscock's treachery will not
have a very great effect, though I regret it has
Secretary Scandrett, of the present club, was
asked his opinion of the matter. He said:
"Glasscoik has done what any other sensible
man would do. Any ball player would be very
ioohsh to sien one of these no-receipt-no-salary
contracts, and I certainly think that there are
many more sensible ball players in the League
besides Glasscock. Now look at the matter
this way: The proposed new club here is to be
chartered under tbe limited liability law. This
means that the stockholders 'will not
be responsible for a cent more than
the capital stock of 120,000. But it will
need all that to fix up the grounds, and who
will pay the players' salaries until tbe cham
pionship season opens 7 When that difficulty
arrives there Rill not be so many heroic sup
porters of the players. Nobody can blame
Glasscock or any other player who refuses to
sign anything so unfair and unsafe as the
Ed Swartwood joined in the conversation
and said: "Why, I'll give my opinion: H
there was a League contract in Iront of me
and also one from the proposed new league. I
certainly would sign the old League one. The
new one is certainly extremely unsale, and a
ball player needs to look after himself or else
he'll get the worst of it every time."
COULDN'T GET M'PHEE.
Ward' Million to Cincinnati Not n Very
rSFXCUJ. TXLEOIL1.M TO TUB DISPATCH.!
Cikcinnati, November 22. John Montgom
ery Ward arrived from Pittsburg this morning,
and he was at once joined by "Buck" Ewing,
and Ed Andrews, of tbe Indianapolis club. The
trio visited John A. McPhee, and found the
crack second baseman indisposed. The result
of that interview is clouded in mystery, but Mr.
Ward declares he has very little hopes of secur
"He is a man of his word," said Ward, "and
if he has promised to stick to Cincinnati he
will do so.''
And President Stern believes be will make
good his word. Andrews is one of McPhee's
armest personal friends, and his presence here
is doubtless to urge him to cast his fortune with
the new Players' League.
All afternoon the trio of players have been
closeted at the Grand Hotel, where, with a
typewriter and whole reams of paper, undis
turbed, save by snndry visits of a son of Ham
bearing trays of glasses and mysterious bottles,
tbey have digested the address of the League.
The action of Jack Glasscock has aioused
ard to vehemence, and he said: "Tbe League
is welcome to all the players who will follow
that pimple-headed blankety-blauk. The League
is probably willing to take them."
A letter from Holliday came to-day. and he
has virtually consented to return. Contracts
were mailed to-night to Nichol andSuryea, and
President Stern breathes easier.
THE MAGNATES LEAVE.
Hanlon and Johmon Go to Philadelphia to
Hustle for Plnyera.
Ed Hanlon and Al Johnson left for Philadel
phia last evening. Hanlon does not expect to
return for two weeks, as he intends to visit
home befoie he comes back. Before leaving
he stated that everything was in good shape
here, and that a Brotherhood club was a cer
tainty In this city. He expects to meet Dun
lap, Maul and Conway before he returns, and
sign tbem alL
There was some talk last evening relative to
Sunday's intentions. It is rnmored that he
will certainly play in the Brotherhood League.
Al Scandrett, however, states that he will run
all chances ana will bet $30 to $50 that Sunday
will again he in the Pittsburg's old club. Ad
Gumbert also stated to a friend that he is not
inclined to sign a three-year contract such as
presented by the Brotherhood.
Love'a Philadelphia Club.
Phuadelpiiia, November 22. Henry M.
Love yesterday announced that Lave Cross,
catcher of the Athletic Club, had signed with
the local Brotherhood Club. This was a severe
blow to the Athletic Club, since it was confi
dently expected that Cross would sign an As
sociation contract to-day. Cross' terms were
accepted last Monday, and Manager Sharsig
considered him as good as .signed. It now looks
as though Stovey and Bierbauer might also go
over to the Brotherhood, although tbe former
has said that be will take no decisive step until
after January L With Cross, MilUgan and
Hallman behind tbe bat the local Brotherhood
Club will be well fixed for catchers. Another
pitcher is wanted, and Mr. Lore says that he
will be signed to-day.
K0III7 is Ready.
A backer of Ed Beilly called at this office last
evening and stated that Beilly Is willing to ac
cept the challenge of the unknown. Reilly's
backers will meet the unknown's backers at
this office at 820 next Saturday evening to
make a match.
Tiai talks a little.
The Now York Pitcher Says Deserters
Will be Enjoined.
New Tokk, November 22. 'If Glasscock
has deserted the Brotherhood, and I am in
clined to believe that he has," said Tim Keefe
to the Sun reporter yesterday, "he is certainly
a man without any honor or decency. To have
heard Denny and him heap abuse upntho
heads of the management of the Indianapolis
clnbwhen they signed a Brotherhood contract
In this city, you would have said: 'Well, there
are certainly two men who will never falter.'
Why, they almost got down on their knees
and promised faithfully to support the
Brotherhood in any undertaking. Now what
can you expect from such men as these?"
"It's a rather serious defection withal T"
"Not so much as one would think. Both men
ate good players, it's trne. As far as Glasscock
is concerned, there you may stop. If you had
beard the uncomplimentary remarks made by
some of the Indianapolis plavers last season
atramst Glasscock, you would quickly come to
tho conclusion that tbe Brotherhood, in fact,
any orjranization, is better without such people.
We Can stand their desertion ery well. Their
places will be filled by men, who, while not pos
sessing the national prominence, will play their
positions just as acceptably."
"Will the Brotherhood proceed against them
in the courts 7"
"Yes, indeed. Every effort will be made to
enjoin them from playing in the League; not
only these men but every othor deserter."
"What cause do you assign for Glasscock's
and Denny's action!"
"Oh, I suppose they have been promised an.
extraordinarily bin salar, and probably other
inducements were thrown in."
"It is 6ald that Boyl of the samo club, and
Clements, of the Philadelphia club, have gone,
"Well, I cannot believe Boyle has deserted.
Prom what 1 know of the man I honestly be
lieve that report is untrue. Clements. I think,
acted like a baby."
"It may be contended that tne Brotherhood
has not lived up to its treement; that the men
are doubtful about salaries, etc."
"That can't be. In the first place every plaver
sismed a personal agreement. The party with
whom he signed was one of the stockholders of
the club. As long as the party of the first part
fulfilled his part of the contract the agreement
will certainly hold good. How, then, after his
club has been incorporated, and everyone in the
new organization lias, the player signs a con
tract with the party of the first part, the stock
holders, at a salary equal to that received by
him last year."
"It is claimed that, thus far, there is but lit
tle evidence of any capital being invested in
tbe new movement."
"That's a very foolish remark, indeed, for
anyone to make. In this city and I speak
from personal knowledge of affairs every
share of stock has been disposed of, and I
know of a dozen gentlemen who would like to
become interested. I have a few shares my
self, and a little more money beside laid by for
f nnher investment in the same thing."
"Have there been any players to receive ad
vance money I"
"Yes; quite a number. I know that Latbam
received an advance when he signed. Of
course, this is not intended to be a ceneral
thing. We are aware that there are players
who are deserving of an advance, and they
will get it."
"It is said that Mr. Von der Aheiscoqnet
tinc with the Brotherhood with a view of bring
ing the entire St. Louis club into the fold."
"I don't see why he should. There's no room
for him. The fact is, by the time we get
throueh picking out his players, there won't be
much left of the St. Louis club to go anywhere.
It has surprised me not a little tosee bow quiet

THEY WANT A MANAGER.
A Peep at the McKeenport Conntr League
Manager Torreyson, of McKcesport, is look
ing for a good practical manager for the pro
fessional clnb, and desires to secure more than
one, also about four good scorers, as he has re
quests from the Tri-State League clubs for the
same. They will be paid $100 per month.
Until yesterday over 100 applications for posi
tions on the club have been received, but he
has only signed one man, as he is devoting bis
attention to securing a good manager for the
club. Tbe stock is all taken, and about $1,000
will be put out to place the park in good condi
tion. The club will play 6 games at home with
Tri-State Clubs, and the same number abroad,
and will start out for the season, April 12.
Tbe McKeesports, of the Allegheny County
League, will be as strong as last season and
will be managed by local baseball men of tbe
city, and during the absence of tbe professional

THE LEAGUE'S FALSE POSITION
Explained in Another Spirited Address to
TIM JtEEPB SAIS A FEW W0KDS.
He Says Tbat AH Brotherhood Deserters Will be
Messrs. Ward, Ewing and Andrews have
issued a public reply to the League mag
nates' address. It argues that the League
has made many misstatements. Tim Keefe
also says a few interesting things.
Cincinnati, November 22. A special
committee of the Brotherhood of Baseball
Players, Messrs. "Ward, Ewing and An
drews, after an all-day session at the Grand
Botel issued the following address:
To tbe Public:
If anything further were necessary to show
the desperate state of mind into which the old
League magnates have fallen, this last appeal
to the public has furnished it. In its state
ments of facts, it is tbe weakest, and in Its
misstatements, the strongest of any yet issued.
After claiming credit for things with which
they Individually have had absolutely nothing
to do, they launch forth on a sea of assertions,
compared to which the so-called "glittering
generalities" of the Brotherhood are a mere
THE LEAGUE PLATED OUT.
"Without questioning the services rendered
by the old League, or stopping to inquire how
far its course has been prompted by selfish In
terests, the players still believe that its days of
usefulness have gone: that it has fallen into the
hands of men who look more to their personal
interests than to the good of the game. "When
they attempted to make money at the sacrifice
of the dignity of the game and at the expense
of the player's rights as a man, they went too
far. A system which contemplates the sale of
a player's future services is too iniquitous and
un-American to stand, however dear to the
hearts of the magnates. The League commit
tee has taken pains to point out how much the
players owe to tbe League, but omitted to rnen
tion .how much they themselves owe to tho
players. The ease with which they skim over
the origin and intention of the "Reserve Rule"
and its supposed present necessity would be re
freshing were it not so evidently intended to
mislead. They ask: "What made that rule
necessary? Was it not tue
UNSCRUPULOUS VANDALISM .
of the players themselves and their unwill
ingness to trust one another?" As its author,
A. G. Mills, has said, it was intended to take
the robber manager by the throat and make
him keep his hands off the players in an
associate club. The power this rule gave, was
used in the' most mercenary way and the
assertion by the committee that no player has
ever been transferred without his consent, is
Do they call it consent when a plaver must
submit or get out of baseball? Did Buffinton
and Gunning consent? Were not both Morrill
and Wiso sold and tbe fact published before
either was spoken to or knew anything abont
it? Did Rowe and White go willingly to Pitts
burg? Or Kutcliflo to Cleveland? Or Getzein or
this same precious trio, Glasscock, Denny and
Boyle to Indianapolis? No. They did every
thing to escape and only "consented" when the
alternative was presented of being shut out of
a livelihood in baseball.
SOME FALSEHOODS NAILED.
The assertion that the new League proposes
to transfer players without their consent is
either a mistake or a wilful misstatement, and
when the terms of his contract has expired, he
is at perfect liberty again to go where he will,
and nothing in the constitution of the new
League or in his contract attempts to deprive
him of this right. We have no "reserve rule,"
no "arbitrary 82,000-Hmit rule,' only one con
tract and the full salary written in it, nothing
which encroaches upon the player's natural
rights, and when he goes from one club to
another his "consent" is not forced and no
price is passed. The statement that the con
tract in use since 1SS7 has never been violated
by the League in letter or spirit, is another
characteristic piece of effrontery. The under
standing between clnbs and players was vio
lated when the League failed (by its own con
nivance, as has been charged) to secure the re
peal of the salary limit rule; the
SPIRIT OP THE CONTBACT
was violated when they refused to insert in
the contract the player's full salary; it was out
rageously violated again when the classifica
tion law was passed, and it was violated again
in every case where a player's salary was re
duced by the operation of tbat law. We re
fused to meet the League this fall because the
time for such meeting had long since passed.
It is true the League has enacted some things
the Brotherhood would have asked, and in so
doing has not only stultified itself and acknowl
edged the injustice of its former position, bnt
admitted the justice of our claims.
But is anyone conversant with League
methods simple enongh to believe they would
ever have done this had necessity not forced it
upon them? They have not paid back the dif
ference in salaries to the classified players,
and their pretension to have abolished the
sales system is a weak attempt to deceive tbe
public In future tbe pl?yer must buy his re
lease instead of the club, but the money will
come just tbe same from the purchasing club,
A DIFFICULT TASK.
It is no simple task to organize a new league
nor is it the work of a week. We could not
postpone action until fall when we would all be
separated and powerless to act together, be
cause in such a condition the League would
have laughed at us. In order to, Interest men
with capital to expend time and money in such
a project, it was necessary to give some guar
antee of. good faith. We tried to meet the
League, but they refused, whereupon, and not
till then, we decided to look elsewhere for em
ployment. If anyono thinks we should have
made our plans public from tbe beginning let
him look at the obstacles tbe League is now
throwing in onr way and the methods it is em
ploying to defeat ns. Had we had these to en
counter at first our failure would have been
certain and our position in consequence worse
than ever. As for the effect of this movement
upon tbe game the public need have no fear.
Tho players interested are tbe very ones most
vitally concerned in the game's future, and they
will do nothing to Injure it In any way. On the
contrary they will do everything to preserve its
purity and integrity, to elevate it above a mere
speculative enterprise, to place it on the level
which our national game sbould occupy.

THE ALIiEGED CONSPIRACY CASE
Creates Considerable Talk Peter Wise Ar
rested and Released on Ball.
The "Callaghan conspiracy case," as it is
called, is creating a good deal of talk in
Scottdale. Mr. Callaghan was seen last
evening, and when asked about the unpub
lished letters of his to T. V. Powderly, he
saidlhat Mr. Byrne seemed to know more
about such letters than he did.
"If there are any such letters in exist
ence," said Jlr. Callaghan, "they are evi
dently forgeries. It cannot be otherwise, as
no communication from me to Powderly
would have any bearing on the present case.
I wrote to Powderly in regard to the boy
cott being waged against me by Wise and
Byrne, but he ignored my letter entirely.
The Beading Bailway story is all bosh.
There is not a word of truth in the
statement. I returned the pass sent by the
Reading Company when I was a member of
the Legislature and have had no dealings
with the company since. The statement
that I am unknown is ridiculous. I am
well known to people of this and surround
ing counties and I have worked hard to
make my way in life, and do not feel like
being bulldozed by a lot of scoundrels."
Peter Wise was arrested by Constable
Gay this afternoon, and gave bail for his
appearance at the hearing. Mr. Wise is
not disposed to say much about tbe matter,
bat declares he was in no way implicated
in a conspiracy ag&inst Sir. Callaghan. He
emphatically denies that he ever told Calla-
fhanthathe would be boycotted and his
usiness ruined. He claims that Callaghan
is simply a figurehead in the affair, and is
being led on by outside parties.

A NIGHT OF TEKROR,
Very Exciting Scenes on the Streets
of San Jose for a Few Hours.
LOTS OP POOR SHOOTING DONE.
Pour Hen Killed, One of Whom Was a Most
WOUNDS EECE1TBD BI FODJS 0THEES.
An Uprising1 With Little Bloodshed and Some Amusing
Interesting details of the Costa Bican up
rising on the 7th of the month have just
reached New York andbeen telegraphed at
once to The Dispatch. San Jose was a
pretty highly excited place on that day.
Four men were killed and four others
wounded during the transfer of government.
.SriCLlL TELIOEAM TO THE DI3PA.TCH.1
New Yobk, November 22. Under date
of San Jose, November 11, The Dispatch
letter, just received here, brings the follow
ing: At 6:30 on the afternoon ot the 7th,
there was a sudden commotion in the streets
of this capital. People began to run hither
and thither wildly, women fell to shrieking
and sobbing, shopkeepers and their clerks
hastily shnt and barred the doors and win
dows of their various pfbees. From the
slamming of shutters and the snapping of
locks it was at once evident that there was
serious trouble in the atmosphere.
"Arms! Arnul Arms!" was the cry. Still
no one could tell precisely what had hap
pened. As in a twinkling, men who had
run toward the outskirts of the town, reap
peared, carrying each a brand-new machete
in one hand, and in the other a large re
volver or stoat club.
WILD HUMORS IN THE AIB.
"Guard every crossing Let no one pass
without the word!" were the orders. It
seems that word had been brought that a
thousand or moreEsquivelistas were march
ing upon San Jose from Alajnela. Other
wild rumors were in the air. Victor de la
Gnardia, brother of the late President
Guardia, had proclaimed himself dictator.
The true version is that the Bodriguista
element having penetrated the police head
quarters, a large number ot police who
were known io be Equivelistas were all at
once discharged from the force. They
marched ofi good humoredly, taking their
official decapitation in a philosophical way,
but one of them, in passing near the central
Cnartel, gave vent to his feelings in a last
aenant " viva jssquiveil '
This was at once seized upon by the Bod
riguista? as a pretext for action. By 6
o'clock the city was in a terrible commo
tion. Prominent Bodriguista merchants
distributed brand new arms to all who came.
The huge machetes ,
SHONE LIKE SILVER
The revolvers were bright and shining
likewise. It was a beautiful, warm night,
with hardly a breeze stirring. The moon
was fnll and rose early. The Bodriguistas
formed into companies, and tied their white
handkerchiefs around their left arms. They
posted sentries at the street corners. The
challenge was, "Qnien Vive?" The answer,
"Bodriguez." Then the question "TJno?"
and if the approaching person did not
instantly reply "Dos," he was arrested.
With all the excitement, however, any
foreigner was perfectly safe, unles he
stepped in front of a stray bullet. The'
Dispatch correspondent went in every
direction without the least difficulty. Most
of the foreigners ran up their own particu
lar flags, but this was wholly unnecessary.
One man went to borrow tbe stars and
stripes from Mr. Keith, the railroad man.
Air. Keith sent him word to wrap himself
up in a sheet and go to bed; he would be
The Esquivelistas, it was soon seen, were
in the minority. The Bodriguistas massed
with their arms on the hill, above the rail
road station, and in the Hospital plaza.
They patroledthe streets and took possession
of every available space. "Give us the
cnartels!" was their cry.
Firing began at last from the Presidental
Palace. The guns were aimed high, how
ever, and no one was hurt. The Union Bank
and the French Hotel show some pretty
good-sized perforations in their second-story
outer walls. All night long the fight was
kept up, with no greater loss ot life than
four, and four others being wounded.
Among those killed was an estimable gen
tleman, Don Teodorico Quiros, a merchant
who, .being a little deaf, did not hear or
understand, a Bodriguistas challenge, and
was shot down while going from his own
house to that of his brother-in-law, Dr.
Duran, whom he bad just heard, had been
called to the post oi Acting President
A night to eemembeb.
Apart from this sad accident there is
really little to grieve for, though the night
was one to remember. The demand for tbe
Cnartels was kept up, and also the demand
that President Soto turn over the Presi
dency to Duran, the third Vice President
At about midnight Soto concluded to do so.
Dr. Duran immediately named Don Bicardo
Jimenez as Minister General in place of
Don Mauro Fernandez, wno of course went
out with Soto.
This is now the condition of affairs. Dr.
Carlos Duran is acting President ot Costa
Bica, and Don Bicardo Jimenez is Minister
of Hacienda, commerce, public instruction
and all the other portfolios. Don Bafael
Izlesias is the Warwick of the day. The
leaders of the opposition party will be sent
out of the country and given foreign missions.
That is their worst fate. There will be no
more uprisings. Bodriguez will step
quietly into power, and Don Ascension
Esquivel will accept his defeat quietly and
philosophically, like the progressive and
broad-minded man that he is.
SOME AMUSING INCIDENTS.
There were many amusing incidents in
the uprising. A stout, elderly Bodriguista
woman came rushing oat of her house into
the moonlit street "So many people! So
many men!" she cried, waving her eyes
wildlr. "So many men, and not an arm
I'm o'ff to get mathetesand revolvers." She
galloped down a side street in her black
skirt and white camisa, quite forgetting to
take her shawl. In ten minutes she reap
peared, heading a dozen other women in
similar attire, each one with a handkerchief
tied around her left arm (the Bodriguista
badge), and carrying in one hand a huge
knife and in the o'ther a pistol.
The inevitable woman carrying her baby
upside down was also on hand to relieve the
strain upon one's nerves. She ran from one
danger to another, and only subsided when
some one called her attention to the purple
countenance of her offspring, which seemed
to be in the throes of dissolution.
WOMEN OF ALL CLASSES
of society took deep interest in the struggle.
The beautiful young wife of President Soto
was an ardent Esquivelista, and cheered on
the party up to the last moment with patri
otic songs and enthusiastic words.
It is quiet to day, and no further uprising
is feared. Dispassionate minds consider
President Soto's act of letting go the reins a
weakness on his part They say it looks aa
though the Bodriguistas wanted the earth,
sun, moon and stars. Don Ascension
Esquivel's defeat may be attributed solely
to ihi fact that the masses regarded him as
a Kicaraguense, and their national jealousy
is so strong that they could not pardon the
accident of birth over the frontier line.
There was not one other objection.v A man
ot pure life, private and public, spotless in
tegrity, kindly nature, and progressive
tendencies, Esquivel must have made an
excellent President The country loses a
good deal, too, in the resignation of Don
Mauro Fernandez from the Cabinet It has
never had as Minister a harder worker or
more clear-headed and enlightened states
man. SOME OF THE EESULTS.
