W PRICE FOB HIM,
Al Johnson Means to Have
the Great Clarkson.
CONSOLIDATION WOFT GO.
Alleghenians Pat Up a Forfeit for a
Fire Engine Hatch.
M'CAFFREY WILL FIGHT FAREELL
Al Johnson, President of the Players'
League, makes some more interesting state
ments. Clarkson is to be secnred at any
price and the consolidation scheme is
strongly condemned. A forfeit of $50 is pnt
np toward a wager that an Allegheny fire
engine is better than any in Pittsburg. Mc
Caffrey is ready to fight Pat Farrell.
UTTCIXJ. TXLXQBAX TO TBI D1SPXTCH.1
Cleveland, O., December 6. When
President Johnson, of the Players' League,
was seen by your correspondent to-night, he
was just in the act ot writing a message to
Mike Kelly, reading:
"Sign Clarkson by all means." "Yon can
say," said Mr. Johnson, "that Clarkson
will pitch for the Brotherhood. He is with
us, heart and soul. He told me so at Bos
ton, and he supplemented this avowal of
good faith while at Cleveland. "We would
not let him get away from us for any money.
His present offer is his last season's salary
and his division ot receipts. If this is not
ecough we will give him more."
"How about WilmotT"
"Well," said Mr. Johnson, "the Brotherhod
people do not believe the story of his desertion.
He was present at the Brotherhood meeting
in New York. Ho stood up and said that, al
though he had been reserved by the Washing
ton Club, he was with the Brotherhood, but,
said he: 'I have an offer' to act as captain and
manager of the St. Paul team, of next year, at
a good salary. 1 may decide to accept the
offer,' The Brotherhood said to him frankly:
If you can better your position in this way, all
risht. 21, however, the league reserves you
come to us.' In the presence of hundreds of
witnesses Wilmot made that solemn promise.
Under the circumstances, I cannot believe that
he has gone over to the League, outright. As
an instance of the League's efforts to retain Its
old players, let mo cito you this fact: You know
Ed Hanlon to be an active Brotherhood man.
HANLOJJ'S GBEAT INDUCEMENTS.
Now, I know to a certainty that he was
offered the most extraordinary inducements
ever held out to a ball player. He was offered
a certain salary as manager, another salary as
captain and another salary as player with the
Pittsburg club. He declined the offers and
said he was with the Brotherhood to stay. I
consider that a most remarkable illustration of
fidelity to principle. Why, our Players' League
has taken don all the bars hitherto kept in
place by the League We secured the abolish
ment of the classification rule and the modifi
cation or the sales system. A player that has
promised us his support in advance is simplv
incapable of gratitude to go back oa us alter
this achl '-Miient."
While vour correspondent talked, Mr. John
son was Demi deluged with telegrams, many of
them relative to a 10 or 12 club Players'
"My own notion," said Mr. Johnson, "is that
the Brotherhood will decide at its meeting In
New York on December 16 to place clnbs only
in these cities: New York, Boston, Philadel
1 hia. Chicago, Brooklyn, Pittsburg, Cleveland
"It is possible that I shall be outrated, and
that clubs will also be placed in Cincinnati, St.
Louis, Washington and Indianapolis; but I
doubt it. I know that the players generally
favor eight clnbB in the League. We can make
eight strong clubs, and eight clnbs that will
draw. If we try to increase the number
' to ten or twelve we shall only suc
ceed in getting on our list two
or three very weak clnbs that will never pay
expenses. 1 shall make an earnest fight at the
meeting in New York against any new vent
ures. We are on to J right track now. We
have grounds picked out in eight different
cities aud clubs nicked out that cannot fail to
draw crowds. To-day 2 have signed "Jersey"
Bakely for our local club, who, with O'Brien
and Gruber and one more first-class man, will
make Cleveland a great club."
"How about the legal situation?"
"Well, sir, we are only waiting for the League
people to show their bands."
BEADY TO RETALIATE.
'We can show bow almost every clause of
the League constitution, regarding contracts
with players, has been grossly violated. When
these cases have been settled we shall proceed
against the traitors, although we do not want
them in the Players' League. We shall assume
the defensive, and shall let the League make
the first advance."
"What is the outlook in a general way for the
Brotherhood to-dayT '
"Better than ever before by long odds. I
admit, frankly, that there was a timejnotmany
days ago, when we lost heart. Desertion
seemed to follow desertion, and I was consider-
auiiaisconragea. -men uanion, ivelly, ward,
than whom there is no fairer, sqnarer
man in the business, began shower
ing me with telegrams. We all
started to work, and. as a result, in ten days
had signed 50 of 60 of the best ball players be
neaththesun. To-daytheBallPIavers' League
is as much of an assured success as if the season
was begun and tne interest at its height.
Don't let the people worry about sufficient
financial backlog. It is already guaranteed
and eves' player will get his salarv."
President Robison, of the local League club,
is quite sure that two, and possibly four new
clubs will be taken into the League circuit next
season. If only two are admitted they will be
Cincinnati and Brooklyn. If the other two are
asked within the fold, they will be Buffalo and
Another Reliable Rumor.
St. Lotus, December 6. The Sporting Hews
to-day publishes a statement to the effect that
if the Brotherhood and American Association
do not consolidate the League will take pos
session of the remaining clnbs of the Associa
tion. The plan is to transfer the Indianapolis
club to New York, the St. Louis Browns to
Chicago, the Columbus and Lonisvilles to Bos
ton. This will strengthen all the League clubs
so that if there is no coalition of the Brother
hood and American Association they (the
League clubs) will be easily able to hold their
own against the Brotherhood. This Informa
tion is derived from a most reliable source and
can be depended upon.
Is Sillier Weakening t
After all the talk it seems that the backers of
Alexander Miller are not anxious to match
him against McClelland, of this city, for a ten
mile race. Yesterday's McClelland's backer
put up a forfeit in the Now York Sun office for
a race, give or take expenses, but the Pitts-'
burgers backer does not expect it to be con
ceded. McClelland is extremely disappointed
at Miller's hesitancy, particularly after Miller
was the challenger.

WHEBE 18 CHIEF ETAKS?
A Bold Challence From Allegheny Concern
Inn Hla Fire Euslnea.
The Alleghenians are patriots without any
doubt, and they won't by any means allow their
pnblic properly to be disparaged without rev
son. Tbey are now after Chief Evans and his
fire engines, and if the Chief is as spirited and
patriotic as the Allegheny citizens, he will put
np the cash to-day for a very interesting con
test. A well-known gentleman from the city
across the river left the following statement,
accompanied by a deposit of ISO, with the
sporting editor of this paper last evening:
"Time and time again Chief Evans, of the
Pittsbnrg Fire Department, has praised his
engines, the Amoskeags, at the expense of
those in Allegheny City, the Silsbys. To-day
he is once more auoted as saying that the
Duquesns, No. 2, of Pittsburg, can throw water
further than any of ours in Allegheny, that is,
any of the Silsbys. Now, we mean to call the
veteran chief to time on this occasion and if he
half believes what he says he will try and make
good bis boastings. I now put up $50 with
the sporting editor of The Dispatch as a
forfeit for a wager of $500 that he will find a
Silsby engine In Allegheny that will throw
water further than the Duquesne engine. I
will meet the Chief at The Dispatch office
any time that may be convenient to him or his
friends to arrange for the contest. It is to be
hoped that Chief K vans will come to the front
in this instance or in future refrain from mak
ing statements that have no truth in them. At
any rate, there is now an honest chance to have
the question thoroughly settled."
H'CAFFBEY TO FAREELL.
Doralnlck Now Rendy to Meet the Pitts
burner Under Any Rules.
Evidently Dominick McCaffrey has changed
his mind about not fighting Pat Farrell; at
least the following letter received by the writer
wonld Indicate so. The letter reads:
"If Pat Farrell. the Pittsburg boxer, wants
to fight Dominick McCaffrev, the latter will go
him. ana will be glad to get the chance. Dom
inick is ont ot the saloon business and it would
just suit him to go Fat to a finish under any
rules anaioranysuDsiantiaiotaKeab a yumi,
within 100 miles of New York."
The letter was dated the Hoffman Honse,
New York, and signed by Ed Bradford, McCaf
frey's friend and trainer. This looks like a
thorough-going business challenge, and nothing
now is left for Farrell bnt to accept it. He
cannot well refuse to meet a man like McCaf
frey If he wants to fight at all. However, Far
rell and his backers are considering the matter
and they may come to a definite conclusion to
day. Clifton Races.

rSFECIAL TXLXOBAX TO THE DISrATCH.1
Ottatta, Out., December 6. The town
of Ions, Ont,, has been furnished with a
first-class sensation by Harry Watts, a
prominent merchant and church member,
who has eloped with his wife's sister, Miss
Amanda Bolph. Seventeen years ago
Watts married a daughter of James Bolph.
He had arrived from England a short time
previous. He opened a store at Middle-
miss, and 18 months ago removed to Iona,
where he conducted a general store.
He was steady, paid his debts promptly,
and was looked upon as a staid, industrious
citizen, in good standing in the Methodist
Church. He was a capital singer, and
speedily was appointed leader of the choir,
and later was chosen leader of the Baptist
choir as well. After that no entertainment
was complete unless superintended by Harry
ONE Or THE BOYS.
Years before he had become identified
with the Masonic Brotherhood, the Home
Circle, and every other society that hap
pened to establish a lodge in his abiding
place. He spent most of his evenings with
the young men of the village, seeming to
prefer the company of the "boys" to that of
the elderly citizens.
"Watts had by this time reached the age of
40 years, had a" wife, fourNchildren, ana was
apparently devoted to them. He also had a
sister-in-law, Amanda Bolph, 21 years of
age. She came to visit her sister, and her
nut-brown hair and petite figure seem to
have infatuated Watts. His 15-year-old
daughter. Louise, noticed there was some
thing wrong, and told her mother that "Pa
and Aunt Amanda are altogether too
thick," but the wife laughed and did not

Amanda spent part of her time at Watts'
and part of the time at home, but it has
since been learned that they corresponded
almost daily, but Watts was too cunning to
leave his letters lying around.
AN ELOPEMENT PLANKED.
A short time ago Watts induced his wife
to go to her father's saying that it would
benefit the health of the infant child, who
had been ailing. Amanda, meantime, re
mained to keep house, aud it is supposed
that it was then that the elopement was
On Saturday the girl left, ostensibly for
none, ner route would naturally be via
London. On Saturday night Watts showed
his wife what purported to be a telegram
from London, stating that he had to go
there. His wife remarked that it was
strange that he should receive a telegram to
that effect after telling her a few days pre
viously that he had to go to Forest City on
Monday, but she thonght no more about it.
He left on the early morning train on Mon
day, and next day a postal card was re
ceived from him saying that he had been

didn't tell ALL.
Watts made no mention of the fact that
Amanda was in his company, but the
wronged wife was informed that her brother-in-law
had met Amanda there by chance
and asked her to so home with him. This
she declined to do, saying she would go by
train. She also refused to allow him to take
her trunk. His suspicions were naturally
aroused, and the receipt of Watts' letter
only served to, confirm them.-
Mrs. Watts' brother accompanied her
back to Iona, .and the business was con
ducted as usual until the effects were seized
by the Sheriff. A letter was received from
Mrs. Pike, wife of a former hotel keeper at
Iona and now of Toledo, saying that the
guilty pair were in Toledo. It is currently
believed that Watts, knowing that his sins
would be sure to find them out, fled.

Yon Can Only be Ejected Prom a-Traln la
Middletown, N. T., December 6. The
Supreme Court of the Fifth Judicial dis
trict has just passed upon questions of great
interest to railroad travelers in the case of
Hurlburt against the Borne, Watertown and
Ogdensburg Bailroad Company. In this
case it was shown to the court and jury that
the plaintiff bought of the company at a re
duced rate a limited ticket specified to be
"Good for one continuous passage," from
TJtica to Watertown. The plaintiff stopped
off the train at Bemsen, and when he took a
subsequent train at that statio'n to complete
the journey to Watertown the conductor re
fused to honor the limited, ticket and de
manded the regular fare.
This the plaintiff declined to pay, where
upon the conductor put him off the train at
a point in the woods distant from any rail
road station or dwelling house. The
ejected passenger brought suit against the
company for $1,000 damages for alleged un
lawful exclusion irom the train.
The court instructed he jury that when a
passenger purchases a limited or continuous
railroad ticket, which is sold for less than
the regular fare, and refuses or neglects to
comply with the conditions of the contract
attached to such ticket it is then lawful for
the conductor or other servant of the com
pany to put him and his baggage off the
train; but the ejecting must be done with
out any unnecessary force and at or near one
of the company's regular stations, or an in
habited house, where the ejected passenger
may find immediate help and shelter.
In the case in hand the company's servants
were justified in ejecting the plaintiff from
the train, but they erred in putting him off
at a point distant from any station or dwell
ing, and the plaintiff was therefore entitled
to recover a verdict for reasonable damages
for the improper exercise of the company's
rights in the premises. Under these instruc
tions the jury returned a verdict for the
plainiiff for $250 damages and costs.
MASQUERADES AS A MAN.
A Pretty Illinois Girl Rons Away In Male
S7..LOTIS, Mo., December 6. Miss Jen
nie Merrill was arrested at the Union depot
this morning for masquerading in male at
tire. She'isayoung lady of extraordinary
beauty and of great refinement, and one who
would be least suspected of entertaining any
idea of indulging in romantic escapades.
She made a neat-looking young man, and
when arrested was in company with another
girl. Both were taken in charge by the
police matron, who supplied the young miss
with raiment becoming her sex.
Miss Merrill lives at Galesburg, 111.,
where she attends a seminary. Actuated
by some foolish impulse she escaped with
one of the pupils, assumed masculine at
tire and boarded the train for St. Louis.
At Monmouth, HI., she was recognized
by friends while smoking cigarettes and
conversing with young men. Her father,
who is a wealthy citizen of Galesburg, was
immediately wired and he came to St Louis
to-night and tooK his erring daughter home.
She is 16 years old.
QUITE A ROMAiNCE.
How the Plot of an Iunldlona Rival Were
Axsonia, Conn., December 6. Louis
Powe and Miss Edna Parmelee, both of this
place, were married in Seymour to-day.
There is a romantic story connected with the
marriage. Their wedding was to have taken
place in September. On the day fixed for
the ceremony the friends ot 'the young peo
ple assembled at the home of the bride's
parents. They waited from 7 to 10 o'clock
for the bridegroom, but he failed to show up.
The next day it was learned that Powe had
gone to New Jersey. About a month ago
he returned and resumed his attentions.
Miss Parmelee received him with favor and
they were married to-day.
Powe's reason lor leaving was a trick
played upon him by a rival, who placed in
his hands on his original wedding day a
telegram purporting- to come from a rich
uncle in New Jersey, who was ti leave
Powe his wealth upon his coming to him.
