"Ward's Forces and the Asso
ciation Likely To
MAKE A YEEY BIG COMBINE
$35,000 for a Battle Between Jack
son and Sullivan.
INTERESTING SPORTING BBWS.
Definite statements are current to the
effect that the Brotherhood leaders have
agreed to consolidate with the American
Association. A California athletic cluo
offers $35,000 for a battle between Sullivan
and Jackson. Shadjside Academy has re
solved to establish a first-class gymnasium.
Chicago, November 29. A snecial dis
patch from Columbus, O., says: Unless the
present baseball deal miscarries, the Ameri
can Association and the Brotherhood Trill
make common cause against the National
League in ten cities next season. The pre
liminary arrangements have been concluded
and the only thing now necessaryis a formal
acceptance of uie proposed plan of amalga
mation by a committee of the Brotherhood,
-who will meet at. the. Tremont House, Chi
cago, for that purpose within a few days or. at
least, some time before the meeting of the
American Association In this city by the 10th
The proposition is to combine the present
Brotherhood teams In Chicago, Pittsburg, Buff
alo, New York. Philadelphia, Boston. Cleve
land and Indianapolis with Association teams
at Columbus and at. Louis, merging the Ath
letic and Brotherhood clubs in Philadelphia,
and dropping the Louisville and Baltimore
clubs entirely. The latter management has
FLIRTING AXiIi ALONG
with the Leajrue magnates, and Louisville is
considered dead as a baseball town. This line
of action has been taken only after long con
sideration by the leading Association clubs and
after a foil study of the situation. The Na
tional Lea-rue did its best to wreck the Associa
tion by inducing the Cincinnati, Kansas City
and Brooklyn to leave its ranks, and now it has
come to a survival of the fittest. The Associa
tion clubs concerned in this deal will sign all
their men and then make open war upon the
National League by joining the Brotherhood at
its December meeting.
This deal has been worked quietly and no
news eotceming it has been allowed to the
press, excepting a rumor appearing a few days
ago that John M. Ward had been in this city
Last Monday the Finance Committee of the
American Association held a secret session.
At the conference were Messrs. Von der Abe,
Whfttatr Phpln nnt TirarnB. Iinrinp the
progresnof the meeting John M. Ward and
Alien w. murrain, son 01 me --uiu rvoman,
were introduced, and, after a lone conference,
the above arrangement was agreed to subject
to the other Brotherhood leaders. Al N. John
son, who was absent, telegraphed his approval
of the scheme.
IT LOOKS BATHER QUEER.
This piece of news sonnds somewhat qneer
In view of the fact that when in this city re
cently, John if. Ward told the sporting editor
of this paper that under no consideration conld
the Brotherhood consolidate with any other
league. If the report is true it is certainly In
teresting to know that Von der Ahe is to be
one of the magnates of what probably will be
called the Players' League. If it is true that
snch a combination is to be"made it will knock
the bottom out of the notions to the effect that
the Brotherhood js a union or co-operative en
terprise. However, it would seem unsafe to
believe the story until, it is absolutely con
firmed by the meetings , that are to be held.
Probably more false rumors are flying round
the country about baseball now than there has
been at any other time, during the history of
the game. 'i
TUB DEAL C0NFIEMED.
der Abe to Sell Out to Favor
rsraciAt. tzi-xgkam to tub dispatch.!
St. Louis, Nov. 29. The story that the
American Association and Brotherhood would
combine is confirmed here, and perhaps the
most astonishing phase of it Is that Von der
Ahe Till sell or transfer his team to other
hands, and the new Brotherhood management
will put a strong team in Sportsman Park. The
"boss president" will not talk on the subject,
but the deal for the transfer of the team is on.
President Stem, of Cincinnati, arrived to-day
to sign Eolliday. but the player refused to
sign, stating that be bad received .a fine offer
from the Brotherhood, and be would give Stern
until o o'clock to-morrow to "see" the offer,
otherwise he wonld go with the Brotherhood.
Latham is back from tbe West, and denies that
he or King and Boyle have signed Brotherhood
contracts. Latham is lying.
A WEECKED TEA1L
The Browns Almost All Gone to the Brother
rSFECIAL TELEQKAM TO Till DISPATCH.)
St. Louis, November 29. If the reports pub
lished here are correct, the famous team that
has represented this city in the American As
sociation for the past nine years, is wrecked
past all hopes of rehabilitation. The Brother
hood has gobbled the stars, and every day
brings news of the defection of some promi
nent player. The battery. King and Boyle,
have signed with the Chicago Players' League
team; Latham has signed with the same aggre
gation, and it is not improbable that Comiskey
will be found in Chicago. Mark Baldwin was
a the city during the week, and had a confer
ence with W. H. Robinson, the second base
man. Baldwin also had talks with Holliday, of
tbe Cincinnati team: O'Connor, of Columbusl
and Qulnn, of Boston. When he left it was
stated that he had signed Quinn and O'Connor
for tbe Players' League, and seenred promises
from Robinson and Holliday to sign if their
terms were acceded to. Milligan's desertion
was a great surprise to Von der Ahe, as the big
catcher said when last seen that he bad no
complaints to make. His home is in Philadel
phia, and the offer to play In that city, where
he conld be with his family, was too tempting
to resist. Milligan played good ball in St.
Louis, and his effective batting won many a
The Browns are now heading for Texas, and
are expected back in the city early next month.
O'Neill, Duffee and Fuller are the only good
men left who have not signed with the Brother
hood or with Von der Ahe. Btivetts, the
young pitcher, has not signed, and with proper
handling, he will make a very effective twirler.
Although Chamberlain has signed, stories are
coming from his home in Buffalo that he is
sorry he did it. It appears that the Buffalo
Brotherhood team has been flirting with him.
Tbe contemplated withdrawal of the Balti
more team from the Association will, if carried
out, practically kill the organization, in tbe
opinion of the St. Louis people. In fact, tbe
Association is already considered dead, and no
amount of booming could draw a crowd to
KELLY TALKS A LITTLE.
He Says Jim McCormlck Will Pitch Ball
Chicago, November 29. MIko Kelly, the
baseball player, was in the city yesterday en
route to the Pacific coast where he hopes to
sign Clarkson, Oanzel and others for tbe
Brotherhood. During the day hebeldalevee
at the hotel, hundreds of bis old friends call
ing on him. Talking about Brotherhood affairs
he said that organization had nearly all the
stars now, and be is going to get the remainder
of them. The public he said will cut Brother
hood deserters into nabs next season. Kelly
said that Director Conant, of tbe Boston club,
offered him $3,000 and Eo, 000 a season to play
with tbe Boston League club for three years,
but he refused. Buck Swing he said was
offered the same bonns and 7.500 a year to stay
with New York, while Glasscock deserted the
boys for 11,000 and a HOOO-per-seasou contract.
Jim McCormlck is going into the harness again
with the Brooklyn Brotherhood team.
Among the callers on Kelly were President
Weldenfelter, of the Chicago dnb. and Marie
Baldwin, the pitcher. The latter had just re
turned from St. Loots, where he signed Jack
O'Connor, the catcher, for Brooklyn. He re
ported that Boblnson bad also signed a players'
contract and will go to Cleveland. As for tbe
interview with Comiskey, in which tbe latter
denies that he has joined with the Brother
hood, Baldwin says it was only a bluff, and that
it was Comiskey's effort that secured King,
Jtoyle and Latham to Chicago, -

California Sports Make a Ble Offer to
Snlllrnn nad Jackson.
BoSTOir, November 29. John L. Bullivan was
met at the scene of the great fire this morning.
In his waistcoat pocket he bad a dispatch, just
received from California, but already wrinkled
and soiled from handling and reading. "Look
at that," said the proud champion. "Maybe
the people who think I'm played out will
change their minds. Nobody In this world ever
had admirers willing to put np 35,000 to see
him fight, and no one ever will after I'm
The dispatch was from the President of the
Pacheco. Cal., Athletic Club, guaranteeing
$35,000 to the winner of a finish fight between
himself, tbe great John L. Sullivan, and Jack
son, the negro fighting prodigy.
"Now," said Sullivan, "this is the kind of a
thing I like. It shows there's some apprecia
tion of real fighting left in this country. In
fact, it proves that the ring I growing in favor
again instead of declining. Why, if it wasn't
for the laws that people make to get Sunday
school votes tnere'd he snrh a fighting enthusi
asm in this country as the old-timers never
dreamed of. Why do they offer roe such big
money tofigbtr Well." I will tell you. You
see I've been licking pretty nearly everybody
so easily that, nonesuy, a most comeea iouu
hardly got their money's worth. If a man stood
up to fight me. why he always went to sleep be
fore the fun had really time to begin. Men
who have stayed in the ring for awhile have
done it by running all the time, and of course It
is hardly worth thousands of dollars to see one
man run away from another. Now. you see,
they think they've got a really great man in the
black fellow, and that he is going to make me
work and do a big fight. I hope they have a
good fight's a good thing. I'd like to get at a'
man who really could fight.
-What's my opinion about-Jackson? Well, I
don't want to kill interest in tbe fight, but!
guess it wont be as hard as they think to make
a 'has been' of him. They bank too mnch on
his having done Smith. Smith was a good one
to look at and a good one to stand punishment,
but he couldn't hurt anybody. To make a
black man lose interest, you Vant to hurt him.
Of course Til accept this $35,000 Invitation if
Jackson can get out of bis ridiculous contract
binding him to tbe California Athletic Club.
That was not the contract of a great man. A
great man in any line, acting or fighting, like
me or Booth, doesn't tie himself up. He knows
his own importance."
IMPORTANT TO SPRINTERS.
Jndgo Hneelna Decline! to Deal With a
Dattoit, O- November 29. A special from
Hillsboro says Judge Hoggins, of tbe County
Court, has just created a breeze in this section
by some instructions given a grand jury on a
swindling foot race case.
The bill was against Joe Burns, afterward
proven to "be P. J. McNamara, an Eastern
sprinter, who ran a fake race with an accom
plice here in September, and captured $3,000
from local sports.
Burns was arrested for obtaining money un
der false pretenses. The grand jury stranded
when they struck tbe case, and called upon
Judge Hoggins for instructions.
In his instructions on the point a very rare
question-was answered, viz.: That where two
or more parties are engaged in an illegal act
tbe law will not interfere to protect either of
them as against tbe other. The law. said Judge
Hoggins, is for the protection of honest men,
and not to aid those who are unlawfully en
gaged. Of course, under these circumstances,
the grand jury could not return a bill of in
dictment. The grand jury having ignored the bill
against Burns, tbe question comes up as to
what will be done with the $3,400 taken from
him at the time of his arrest. The total
amount WfiA&i.tnO hnl A. rortlfinfttn nf rinnlt
for $1,900 was returned to Burns, as it was

Shadyslde Academy Fitting Up a Grand
Tbe directors of the Shadyslde Academy have
resolved to establish a first-class gymnasium in
connection with tbe academy. When all the
apparatus ordered is fitted up, probably one of
the most compact Institutions of the kind to be
found in this State will be lound at Shadyslde.
As a means of enlightening the public as to
what is ordered from A G. Pratt, the follow
ing will be Interesting:
Twenty-four O K wall machines, parallel
bars, horizontal vaulting bars, ladder sets, top
brackets, traveling rings. 60 pair Indian duos,
60 pair wood dumbbells, rowing machines, vault
ing stands, knotted rones, rope ladder, buffalo
home trainers, 60 lockers, tug-of-war belts,
striking bags with disk.
In addition to the above there will be a 116
foot running track. Altogether the gymnasium
will be a great one.

New York, November 29. Dr. Wilfred Nel

who has made a special study of yellow fever,
said in an interview today that the investiga

mlngos Freire, of Kio Janeiro, has de
monstrated that tbe human system
can be protected against the dread disease by
inoculation. Dr. Freire's investigations were
carried on under the direct encouragement and
patronage of Dom Pedro, and such confidence
is now felt in the valne of his process that tbe
Municipal Council of Rio Janeiro has appro-
Sriated $600 monthly for the maintenance ot
enots of yellow fever virus in that city.
Dr. Freire's process consists in producing at
tenuated yellow fever microbes. Inoculation
with these causes a mild form of yellow fever,
which protects the subject in future against
yellow fever, jnst as vaccination does against
smallpox. Dr. Giered, late snrgeon-in-chief of

verifying Dr. Freire's results.
KINGS OF THE FOREST.
A Valuable Paper on Oaks Bead Before the
The regular meeting of the "Western Penn
sylvania Botanical Society was held last
night in the parlor attached to tbe Pittsburg
Library. The newly elected officers for the
ensuing year were installed by the retiring
President, Dr. Hamilton. The new Presi
dent, Mr. "William Hamilton, Superinten
dent of the Allegheny Parks, assumed the
insignia of office, with the Vice President,
Prof. J. W. Caldwell; Corresponding Secre
tary, Prof. J. G. Ogden: Treasurer, C. C.
Mellor, and Curator, John A. Shafer.
The preliminary exercises were hearing
the minutes of the" last meeting read, the in
stallation of the new officers and the elec
tion of new members. Superintendent
Hamilton read a paper prepared by Dr.
Ziegler. of Allegheny, entitled "Oaks in
General." The paper was an exhaustive
study on the history of the king of the
forest. The subject was treated in an able
and scholarly manner. The doctor stated
flourished more abundantly in
the temperate zone. They were prolific
in England, and were made famous in the
days of yore by becoming the wooden walls
of the nation, defending her against the en
croachments of foreign aggression. They
were also found in North Africa, Russia,
Asia, China, India, Java, North America,
Mexico, and in many countries of South
America. The oak grew to the height of
150 feet Specimens were found measuring
but two feet.
The doctor stated that the most valuable
oaks were tbe Boyal oak, grown exclusively
on British soil'. He said the wood of this
oak, after being thoroughly dried, was al
most invulnerable. He then traced the his
tory of oaks in this State, and said they
were a species known as British oak, and
were introduced here centuries ago.
NO BALDTE FIRED.
Tronble Over the Benediction nt theFn
neral of a G. A. R. Veteran.
The members of Post 157, G. A. B., were
indignant last night over what they con
sider unjust treatment by Be v. P. A.Ahner,
pastor of the First German Evangelical
Lutheran Church, of Sixth avenue.
It seems, according to their statements,
that Nicholas Bowers, 60 years old, who
served as a private in Company I, Seventy
fourth Pennsylvania Volanteers.and a mem
ber of Post 157, died a few days ago.
The funeral services took place yesterday,
and were conducted by Kev. Mr. Ahner, of
whose church the deceased was a member.
A squad of eight men from the post, four as
pall-bearers and four as a firing squad, went
to the home of their deceased comrade, on
Kirkpatrick street. The sqnad was in
charge of P. C. Calboon. Commander
Askins, of tbe post, was also present, and
asked Mr. Ahner if be would pronounce the
benediction at the grave after the firing
squad got through.
Mr. Ahner positively refused to do this.
and stated that it the squad had anything
to do with tbe funeral he would withdraw
and refuse to hold any service at all. The
members of the post became indignant at
what they thought was an insult and with
drew frorn the premises, taking no ,part
whatever in the services, and not even
attending the funeral.

Allen O. Myers is unmuzzled, and is

tbe thieves of Wall street and playing un
limited poker to come to Ohio to vote. He
could not have voted if he had come. He is
not a citizen of Ohio, and has not been for
years. As the campaign closed he became
convinced that there was a bare possibility
of electing James E. Campbell Governor of
Ohio. He slammed a few thousand vulgar
dollars into the Democratic treasury to pay
Uncle Sam Carey for 'building the temple
of liberty,' as so mnch for temple and for
other legitimate purposes. Calvin $ Brice,
he of tbe unlimited boodle, did not put this
vulgar money in to help win the fight, hut
he simply dumped it when he feared vic

might say, 'I did it with my dirty boodle,
and I have a mortgage on the Ohio Democ

both became convincedthat Campbell might
pull through, but there was no chance of

the ITngutrer and a member of the Legisla
ture, I advocated an open ballot np to the
day of the Senatorial caucus. In the caucus
in the afternoon, on my motion, a committee
of six was appointed to draft rules, to pre
pare rules to govern the point caucus. The
committee met in the afternoon, and con
sternation and dismay filled the breasts of
the boodlers when I announced that I should
favor an open ballot in the caucus. After a
hurried consultation, the committee ad
journed to give the bosses time to repair the
broken places. While passing through the
halls of the Neil House I was backed up
into a corner by Oliver $ Payne and John $
McLean, who proceeded to fix me. McLean
" 'Myers, we have concluded that it is
better to have a secret ballot If there is an
open ballot we will lose some votes that we
have got fixed.'
" 'Oh, you have concluded to have a
secret ballot Well, I have concluded to
have an open ballot and I shall cast an
open ballot Any dirty cur that is bold
enough to sell his vote ought to Be brave
enough to let his people know how he
"This abruptly terminated the interview.
"The committee met, and four members,
headed by Gil Sargar, made a report in
favor of a secret ballot. Senator A. B. Van
Cleaf and myself made a minority report in
favor ol an open ballot! Every member ot
the committee who favored a secret ballot
was either paid in money or was among the
first to secure a good fat office under Cleve
land's Administration, as a reward for his
services in betraying the cause of tbe people
into the hands ot the political millionaires.
The members who made the minority report
were outlawed, by the Payne influence for
"In looking back over myacts in politics,
it is a matter of profound regret that I did
not bolt that caucus. I would have led the
revolt that would have beaten boodle, and
Payne, and saved my State and party a deep
disgrace. But I was a young and ambitious
statesman then, and they told me I had a
future. Four years of mud and disgrace
have followed and I see my terrible blunder.
I am trying to make atonement To prevent
another public anction of the Senatorship I
had to lift the standard of revolt."

Mending Their Fences In Columbus
A Suspected Labor Move
Against Mr. Brice'a
rSPSCIAL TSLXOBXK TO THE DISPATCH.!
Columbus, O., November 29. Hon.
Calvin S. Brice arrived from the East this
afternoon, and will go to Cincinnati to
morrow morning. Mr. Brice spent a couple
of hours this evening with Judge Tburman,
and was the center of attraction of a large
crowd of Democrats at the. Neil House to
night A number of tbe Democratic mem
bers of the Legislature are in the city, and
they also met Mr. Brice. He has some of
the strongest Democrats in the State who
are looking after his interests, and several
of them who are here report that the pros
pects are bright
Mr. Brice said he had not been on the
f round for several days, but from what he
ad learned through his friends he was in
clined to confidence in his'success. W.B.
Bitchie, ot Xima, a prominent attorney and
a personal friend of Mr. Brice, said to-night

Democratic members of the Legislature
that Mr. Brice is the proper man to send to
the Senate, and he had.no Joubtthat they
would win in the final Wind up. He said
they expected to put to shame the assertions
of the personal and political enemies of Mr.
Brice by conducting a perfectly clean cam
paign, and It would be found that when
they are through that if Mr. Bnce wins it
will be on bis merits and deserts.
The friends of J. H. Thomas were here
to-night watching the movements of Mr.
Brice and bis friends. Thomas Is recog
nized as the leading opponent to Brice, and
nis son, who is iu mc vitr, aavs mey expect,
to win on the tariff reform idea, which he
claims- is thoroughly represented in Mr.
It is discovered to-night from reliable
sources that there.is an effort being made to
drag the labor organizations into the fight,
and it is believed from what can
he learned, that the movement started in
Springfield, the home of Thomas. The propo
sition is to Lave NationalDistrict Assembly
135, Knights of Labor, adopt resolntions de
claring against the election of a millionaire
to the Senate. This is of course aimed at
'Brice. The friends of Brice claim his
wealth should not be a bar to his selection,
as he came by it houestly, and he does not
propose to make improper use of his money,
as will be shown in the end.

Fire occurred last night in the large frame
building at the corner of Jane and South
