Kobinson. Ewing and Keef o.
There was some little surprise at the result
of tbe election, for it was considered a foregone
conclusion that Colonel Tom McAlpine would
be elected Tretident He. howeTer, sent word
that a pressure of business would prevent his
accepting tbe office. T reasurer Talcott put up
a bond of $100,000, and tbe constitution and by

Hanlon and Ward Coming to Organize u.
There have been many coniectures about the
continued absence of Ed Hanlon. It was stated
yesterday, however, by a gentleman who is in a
position to know that Mr. Hanlon has been de
tained from visiting this city on particular and
important business. Mr. Hanlon and Mr. John J
M. 'Ward will be here to-morrow, and their
mission is to thoroughly organize a Brother
hood club here. Mr. Hanlon has been detained
on business vitally concerning tbe Brotherhood,
and he wires a friend here to the effect that
there will be little or no trouble in organizing a
This definite news sets at rest all rumors to
the effect that Cincinnati would take tbe place
of Pittsburg in tbe Brotherhood circuit, ana it
will doubtless be pleasing news tolocal cranks,
because if any city has to have the old players
of last year's local clnb Pittsburg ought to
A gentleman interested in tbe proposed
Brotherhood club here said yesterday after
noon: "It is unnecessary to keep up a newspa
per dispute about the pros and cons of tbe old
and new club. Let It suffice to say that a Brother
hood club will be In Pi ttsburenext season. Each
player will get a share of the profits cleared,
and this will guarantee tht the whole team
will Win line. Tbe players are simply trying
to help themselves and a few of us are aiding
them. I say let them go on and if thev have
an art that the public is willing to pay for let
them share the money by all means. That's all
there is in it. Tbe Brotherhood Clnb will be
organized here this week and it will play to big
audiences in Pittsburg next season.

WHAT JACKS02J WILL DO.
He U Willing to Meet Sullivan Some Tims
rsrzciAi. TEJtoLOt-TO -rn? uispatck.!
San Fraucisco, December 9. L. K. Fulda,
President of the California Athletic Club, has
received a letter from Parson Davies, which
tells exactly what Peter Jackson intends to do.
Jackson will not challenge Sullivan, but will
fight him for a reasonable purse if the Califor
nia Club arranges the match. Peter will want
five months from the date of signing the ar
ticles of agreement with Sullivan before meet
ing him in the ring. As Jacsson will not leave
for America before January 20, and will take
two months in the East to till engagements that
have been offered him there, the fightwlth Sul
livan couldn't possibly take place before the
middle of summer. Davies writes that Jacfe
son has been treated in royal style In England
and everywhere be has been received in most
friendlv manner. Recently, on visiting one
large London market, marketmen all received
him with cheers, and as he passed through sang
"He's a Jolly Good Fellow." Davies does not
indulge in any predictions at to probable re
sults of the match between Jackson and Sulli
van, but judging by the length of time Peter
wants to get in shape to meet the Boston man,
he does not underrate his capacity.
FUTOEE OF JEROME PARK.
Slim Prospects of Racing; There In Opposi

IBFKCIAX. TELEQBAX TO TBI DISrATCH.l
New Yobk, December 9. A special meeting
of the stockholders of the Jerome Park Villa
Site and Improvement Company was held at 5
o'clock this afternoon at tho rooms of the
American Jockey Club. It is this company
which owns Jerome Park and rents it to the
American Jockey Club. It Is conceded that
Jerome Park lost a good deal of money this
last year, principally because of the competi
tion of the Wes Chester track. The question
was whether Jerome Park should open next
year, or whether it should kff k the bucket on
tbe spot. Some decision on this point mnst be
reached before the beginning of tbe year, for
then the announcements of the next season's
card and purses must be made.
Secretary Lovecraft said at the close of tbe
meeting that tbis point bad not been decided.
Itwasnotyetknown.be said, whether or not
there would be any more racing at Jerome Park,
and no financial plan had been settled upon.
None of the stockholders present would say
more than this. There is likely to be another

that has occurred in this vincinityfor some
time took place on the grounds of the Herron

Hs is Ready to Ron McClelland For BIjr
The local foot runners are again ta the front,
and Pittsburgers may see another good race
before long. Sam Day. the 'trainer of Peter
Priddy, called at this office yesterday, and left
the iollowing challenge:
"I understand that McClelland and his back
ers are not satisfied with his defeat by Peter
Priddy. If tbis is so, I want to make a definite
offer to the McClelland party. Peter Priddy
will run McClelland one mile, or one mile and
a half, under the same conditions as the last
race between them for $500 or 1,000 a side.
Priddy will also run McClelland a two-mile
race on a cood track for the same amount. I
.now put up $50 forfeit as a guarantee that the
challenge means nusiness, ana i wiu aiiow it to
remain at The Dispatch office for tnreo
weeks. This is no bluff, because our money
goes, and we prefer tbe race, whatever distance
it may be. to be f or 81.000 a side. Now is the
time for these dissatisfied people to put up the
Jennings Talk Plain.
Jack Jennings, the heavyweight pugilist,
called at this office last evening and left the
"I read in The Dispatch to-day that I had
forfeited to Ryan, of McDonald's station.
This is false. Ryan wanted a "receipt1 fight,
and also that it should take place outside the
State. He conld not guarantee a safe place to
fight, and therefore demanded his own money
back. How let me say a word: I will fight Ryan
under any rules, at any place in Pennsylvania,
and for any stake ranging from $500 to $1,000
a side. I really want to know, and so do hun
dreds of others, whether or not Ryan is a pngll
1st. If he will put up the cash for a square
contest then I will notice what he says."

Suter, with W. Stooker, of Irwin, tbe latter to
be conceded ten points, the game to be 61

John Rellly Follows In McPhlllami'a Foot
steps With a Tale of Woe.
During the McPhillamy-Maharneke in
vestigation before the Board of Directors of
the Western Penitentiary last year, one of
the witnesses was a prisoner named John
Reilly. After his examination had been
completed, Reilly startled those present by
saying to President George A. Kelly, of the
Mr. Kelly. I want to make a charge.
Does it relate to the matter in hand?
Ho, sir; bnt I want to make it,
Yon can prefer your charge at another time.
The prisoner was taken out by the guards.
He refused to see a newspaper man subse
quently, and his charge was" not made
public, the incident being quickly for
gotten. Warden Wright said last evening that
Beilly had been recently released, and that
he had related his woes to a fellow ex-prisoner.
In this way Keilly's grievance was
retailed to Warden Wright yesterday. It
was, in effect, that Beilly alleges that the
money paid for the expenses of securing a
hearing before the Pardon Board had been
"whacked up" by a prominent attorney and
a jail official. This story was .stamped by
Warden Wright as ridiculous in the ex
treme. Mr. George A. Kelly was also seen in re
gard to the story, and said it was all news to
him, but he remembered Keilly's question
and tbe incident oi tbe Mabarneke affair
above quoted. He believed that the charges

A Man Shot la lbs Head and Bis Assailant
Anton Bigel was shot during a fight out
Penn avenue last night. Bigel, in company
with three men named Boman Niggel, Peter
Massey and Conrad Deminger, met at a
house in Lafayette alley, and had a dispute
which led to the row. Massey drew a re

The matter was reported to the police, and

The Blind Chaplain Hakes a Flea for the Late
Messrs. McKinley, of Ohio, and Carlisle,
of New York, have been officially recog
nized by Speaker Beed as tbe leaders of
their respective parties in Congress. The
Speaker yesterdayannouueed five important
committees, and expects to complete his list
by Monday next. Mr. Kelley requested
lighter work than that ot Chairman of the
Ways and Means Committee.
lFEOM A 8TA1T COBBISPONDEJJT.
Washington, December 9. As The
Dispatch predicted he would do, Speaker
Beed this morning announced the member
ship of several of the important committees.
He took this course in order to permit-the
Ways and Means and Appropriations com
mittees to begin their workwithoutdelay.and
enable them to report any bills they may
have to present at an earlier date than would
otherwise be possible. He expects to com
plete tbe list of committees during the week,
and report them on next Monday tcrthe
The formation of the committees an
nounced to-day is regarded on all sides as
very satisfactory. The Democratic minority
express themselves well pleased at their
representation. In the make-up of the
Ways and Means Committee but few of the
members who served on it during the last
Congress have been reappointed. Of the 13
members only 2 of the Republicans and
3 of the Democrats have been retained.
Practically, therefore, it is a new com
mittee. AT HIS OWN BEQUEST.
Mr. Kelley, of Pennsylvania, whom many
expected to see made chairman of this com
mittee, wrote to Speaker Beed, reljnquish
ing any claim he might have for this recog
nition, and suggesting that on account of
the present condition of his health and his
advanced age, work on a less important
committee would be more in consonance
with his wishes. Mr. Kelley also suggested
that the Committee on Manufactures would
be the one upon which he would like to
serve, and in conlormity with this, the
Speaker made him its Chairman.
Mr. W.C.P. Breckenridge, of Kentucky,
realizing that two places on the committee
could not be given to tbe same State, and
that Mr. Carlisle's place as leader of the
minority was clearly at the head of the
Democratic representation on tne ways ana
Means, gracefully requested the Speaker to
assign himself to some other work. He was
consequently transferred to the next im
portant committee in the House, that on
ALIi VERT POLITE.
Mr. Mills, of Texas, who was the Chair
man of the Ways and Means Committee in
the last House, also acted very courteously
toward the ex-Speaker. He waived his
right to the first place on the minority rep
resentation, and insisted that he be placed
second to Mr. Carlisle.
Representative Bayne was given a highly
complimentary position on the Ways and
Means Committee. He was the recipient of
many congratulation's from bis colleagues
upon his appointment, as they realize his

Mr. Belden, of New York, gets a place on
the AnnroDriations Committee, in return
for his valuable services on behalf of
Speaker Beed in his recent candidacy.
Mr. Wilson, of West Virginia, one of the
best of the Democrats serving last Congress
on the Ways and Means Committee, has
been transferred to the leadership of the
minority on tbe Committee on Manufactures.
MB. DALZELL PLEASED.
Mr. Dalzell is placed on the Elections
Committee, which is probably one of the
strangest ever formed. He says he is much
pleased that the Speaker has consulted his
wishes in this matter. No committee of the
House offers better opportunities for oratory.
Maish, of York, also gets on this committee.
Townsend, of New Brighton, is placed
second on the Committee on Mileage, a com
mittee whose prompt appointment is possi
bly due to thefact that mileage is all many
of the members will have to live on this
month, on account of the ungracious per
formance of Mr. Silcott,
Of course the appointment of McKinley
to the Chairmanship of Ways and Means
was discounted, and occasioned no surprise.
His selection was practically settled the
moment his defeat for the Speakership was
decided by ballot! In this position he is
ei-officio the leader of tbe majority party in
the House, and a great deal of curiosity is
manifested as to whether he will make a
brilliant success in the position.
A GBEAT SEAL AT STAKE.
In this Congress Mr. McKinley will have
unlimited opportunity to show his mettle,
and if he exhibits the least lack of courage
or ability to meet the great responsibilities
of the office, the Democrats will crowd him
and the party to the wall, and force to the
front a new leader.
The Democratic leaders, with a consum
mate parliamentarian like Carlisle as their
generalissimo, will lose no chance to gn
an advantage, and the questions which will
soon arise will put the abilities ot Mr. Mc
Kinley to the severest test. His is a posi
tion which will make vastly greater de
mands than the Speakership would have
made, and while his most ardent admirers
have perfect confidence in his meeting all
the severe requirements, the developments
of the session in regard to the new leader
will be awaited with deep interest, as the
Ohioan's future depends on the result.
Should he expand into a brilliant and in
vincible leader, his ambition for the Presi
dency will have solid substance to build
ONE OP THE WEDGES.
Congressman Houlc Has a New Scheme to
Knock Ont Civil Service.
lTIlOM A STACT COBBXSrbltDKNT.J
Washington, December 9. Represen
tative Houk, of Tennessee, is one of the
most outspoken or the opponents to the
civil service law in Congress. He. has pre
pared a bill replacing the present civil
service commission, by a board of three
persons, to be appointed by the head of each
department. He said, to-day:
This will be the entering wedge, and if we
pass tbis measure it will not be long before the
civil service law is repealed outright. There
are a number of men who will vote for tbis
bill ot mine who would go no tnrther at this
time. I have every reason to believe also, that
president .Harrison iu sign my oui n it get8
to him, while 1 expect he would veto a proposi.
tion to repeal the existing law. There is
no doubt in my mind that tbis civil
the result of tbe recent elections in Ohio and
Iowa was partly brought about as a manifesta
tion ot disgust at theNexisting system of civil
service. I don't believe that an anpropriatlon
will go through the present Honse to carry on
the commission. I shall certainly vote against
it, and at least 0 other members have come to
me and expressed themselves as being inclined
to do the same thing.
Mr. Alf. Taylor, ako of Tennessee, and
brother of the present Democratic Governor
of that State, although he himself is a Re
publican, promised his constituents to in
troduce a bill to repeal the civil service law.

about this, and he asked me if I wonld like to

Washington, December 9. The com

result of Silcott's defalcation, will make
tbeir report on Wednesday, if they have
time to present it before the beginning of

They will make no report on the question as
to whether the Sergeant-at-Arms is a dis
bursing officer of the Government, but it is
expected that they will recommend that the
salaries of members lost by Silcott's flight be
paid in full by the Government
In the House to-day Mr. Payne, of Kew
York, introduced a bill defining the duties
of the Sergeant-at-Arms of the Honse of
Representatives. It defines the dutiesalready
performed by that officer, and then pro
ceeds: Toe moneys which have been or may he ap
propriated for tbe compensation and mileage
shall be paid at tbe Treasury oh requisition
drawn by the clerk on the Sergeant-at-Arms,
shall be kept, disbursed and accounted for by

A Fair Equestrienne.
The practice of ladies riding on horseback is
rapidly extending to this country, and in any
of our large pnblic parks and oridle-patbs ten
ladles can be seen now where there were but
one or two a few years ago. Horseback riding
is certainly a splendid exercise for women, and,
with her peculiar nervous organization and
usually sedentary habits, tbe American woman
is much in need of exercise in the open air.
Those who are too weak and exhausted to
ride now can do so in a few months' time By
toning np and rejuvenating their nervous sys
tems, equalizing the circulation in their ex
tremities, and building np tbeir muscular tissues
by the use of Roger's Royal Nervine, tne most
subtle and magical nerve tonic known. There
suits attending its use are marvelous, as wit
ness the following from the celebrated actress,
"I have used Rogers' Royal Nervine Tonic
and find it an excellent tonic fat exhausted
nerves, sleeplessness, and that utter fatigue
which comes from overtaxation of tbe brain."
