USED A SURPRISE.
Slker O'Neill Sars Three Old
Players Hare Siped.
KDHElfEW CLUB OEGANIZED
or McCallin President of the
JOHN WARD'S INTERESTING TALK
It was & great local baseball day yester-
'. The annual meeting of the old cluD
i held and Mr. O'Neill cansed surprise,
s new Brotherhood club was organised
h Mavor McCallin as chairman. John
. "Ward spoke plainly about Clarkson.
There was any am6unt of baseball talk
and.baseball business in the city yesterday.
'he annual meeting of the old club was
and the Brotherhood club was organ
ized. Messrs. "Ward, P.'efler and Hanlon
wereMn the city, together with J. P. O'Neill.
'he sensation of the day. however, was niaae
a statement of Mr. O'Neill at the close of
i old club meetine. After stating what
business the meeting bad transacted, Mr.
' "We have to-day secured two or three of
the best players that played in our team last
season. I will give their names to-morrow
evening; but let me tell you they are corkers."
The SDeaVcr was pressed to cive the names.
but emphatically refused. He stated, how
ever, that he aid not at all relerto bowuers
and Sunday. When reminded that Beckley
and others bad signed Brotherhood contracts.
'Mr. O'Keill replied:
A FASHIONABLE STTC.B.
"It is fashionable nowadays to sign two con
tracts or all contracts that are presented.
However, my statement will be verified to-
Ab already stated. Secretary Scandrett went
West to confer with Beckley a few days ago.
and Carroll has been communicated with by
wire. Mr." Scandrett vnU return home this
morning, and the remark made by Mr. O'Neill
was prompted by a dispatch received from Mr.
Scandrett last evening- However. Messrs.
Ward and Hanlon are confident that the
players referred to by Mr. O'Neill are not Car
roll, Beckley or Staley. Hanlon has a letter
from Carroll stating that the latter not only
has signed a Brotherhood contract, but
wants J1.000 worth of stock in the new
T4fer.-f- rlnh TtArlflnv'ii Brotherhood con-
tractsicnedbyhim has also been received by
Hanlon. The curious people, therefore, must
Hwait until Mr. O'Neill makes his definite state
ment. The latter, however, repeated his sur
prising remark several times, and very emphat
ically stated tbat he had all the necessary au-
thority for talking as he did.
President Nimick and Messrs. O'Neill and
ftBrown were the only directors present, Mr.
(Converse being detained in New York and Mr.
Ecandrett being absent on his trip.
OLD OFFICERS BE-ELECTED.
The trio of directors, however, soon got
through their business, at least that part of it
which tbey proposed to do. W. A. Nimick
was re-elected President; J. Palmer U'JS eill was
re-elected Vice President: A. K. Scandrett Sec
retary and Treasurer. Messrs. E. C Converse
and H. Brown were also re-elected directors.
Nothing definite was done regarding the
election of a manager. There were two direct
applications, viz: one from W. W. Bnrnham
and one from H. T. Smith. There was also an
indirect application from Manager Leadley. of
the Detroit dob. Mr. O'Neill, however, stated
; there was a feeling favorable to the election of
a player to the office, and as a certain player
vfcom the directors want has not vet signed.
itne matter was deferred for a few days. Wnen
Questioned on this point Mr. O'Neill refused to
eay who the player desired is.
THE NEW CLUB OBGA2TIZED.
The local Brotherhood magnates were also
busy, an ! got their new club into something
like definite shape. A meeting was held at the
Hotel Anderson. It commenced at 5.30 in the
evening and lasted until about 7 o'clock. Those
present were: Mayor McCallin, H. B. Rae. W.
P. Potter. W. W. Kerr. Ed Hanlon, John
M. Ward, and Fred Pfeffer. When the
meeting adjourned, it was announced that the
following officers had been elected: President,
Mavor McCallin; Secretary, W. P. Potter;
Treasurer, W. W. Kerr, and Manager, Ed
Hanlon. An application for a charter will be
filed this week. Mayor McCallin refused to
give the names of the stockholders, but he said
that all the stock bad been taken by Pittsburg
capitalists. The Mayor voluntarily said to the
representative of this paper:
"I owe The Dispatch an apology. It was
the first paper to find out and publish that I
was connected with this movement and I
denied the announcement. I bad reasons for
denying what was a true statement and I.
therefore, tender my apology. 1 can now say,
however, that the new club will be a go. We
will have excellent grounds and first-class
players and that will certainly attract the
PALMER O'MLL'S VIEWS.
He State That the Brotherhood is Doomed
and Tbat Cleveland and PHtibura;
' Won't Have New Clubs Some
J. Palmer O'Neill, one of the directors of the
local club, expressed himself frankly regarding
5'Jtne 'Brotherhood. During a conversation he
"What do I think of the Brotherhood now?
jfrpThy, it is doomed; its leaders are worried
falmost'to death, and I know it. I traveled
from Chicago with Fred Pfeffer last night, and
I know that he is not as hopeful as he was.
The only card that the Brotherhood" can play;
.that is, the only way It can live, is to join the
American Association; ana n tnat cannot be
done except by breaking the National agree-
yxnent, the association will have none of it, I
,axn very authoritatively informed that a
groove will be made to take the pro
posed Brotherhood club from Cleveland and
tputit somewhere else. A Brotherhood leader
Ur told me that a Brotherhood club would not pay
,' in Cleveland, and that the new leagne did not
intend to run a club there for the benefit of
Mr. Johnson's street car line. Now, this came
.direct from a very prominent Brotherhood
member. He also intimated that there is con
siderable difficulty in getting a club in Pitts
burg. X, therefore, come to the conclusion
that there will not be a Brotherhood team here
nor in Cleveland. Neither city will keep two
clubs, and depend upon it, the old League is
here to stay.
"Capitalists are beginning to be very cautious
about this scheme, and they are acting simitar
to me when I was asked to invest in the new
scheme. When I was approached I said: 'What
do yon want me to buyr 'Why the star play
ers,' was the reply. These star players are
really the assets for which the money is in
vested, and naturally a business man asks him
self the question: Are the assets safeT These
star players are contract jumpers, and it hat
business man is going to invest in them? There
will never be any certainty about them despite
their contracts. The truth is, if ever the
Brotherhood clubs get started the officials will
' never be sure at night what nine tbey will have
in the morning. Tbat will be the level to which
the national game will be reduced If these agi
tators succeed. But I know of many, very
ma ny old League players who the Brother
hood leaders think will stick to them, while
tbey certainly intend to play in the old League."
Mr. O'Neill continued: "Every business
scheme to be successful must build its founda
ion upon fairness, honesty and honor. The
-omotersof the Brotherhood scheme have
"been fair. They are seekine to divert from
National Leagne a corps oi players that
Uk ow very well cost the League a good
many !l,usand dollars to secure and develop,
and therjfeeek to attract these players from the
League by holding out an array of extravagant
figures as their possible earnings. Tbey have
'not been honest in their methods, Tbey know
that many plavers whom they seek to divert
xrom the League were paid quite large bonuses
in consideration of signing contracts which
gave to tbe club signing inem meir services
for the ensning year. Jnis is notable
Lin the case of White and Howe, each of
twnom I am told received late in me season last
BvearL250 bonus, in addition to a largo salary.
Does anvona believe that the Pittsburg club
paid this large sum without aconsiderationf
iDoeS anyone believe ithatWbite andBowa.
ttoox tan money witness laawuit iuu wen h
the consideration was the reserve clause in
their contracts, securing their services for the
ensuing yearf The promoters of the Brother
hood scheme resort also to subterfuges. They
claim the League has no right to reserve its
players under contract, and. in the face of this,
they insist upon their players signing a long
term' contract. Any business man will see at
once that tbe long term contract is a substitute
for the reserve clause in the National League
contract. Tbey resort to clap-trap methods, as
is evidenced by their attempt to secure the
sympathy of the laboring men's associations.
Will anyone presume to place baseball play
era, whose salaries range from $2,000 to
6,000 for seven months' service, in the
same class as the laboring men. especially
those of tbe players, and there arequite a
number of tbem, who are worth from 220,000 to
10.000? Then again the capitalists, who ara
the principal stockholders in the Brotherhood
League, receiving practically all the net profits
are they entitled to be classed with the labor
ing menT No; the present scheme of the
Brotherhood is simply an effort to displace the
present owners of the National League clubs.
In Chicago. Pfeffer and his associates are seek
ing to take the place of Mr. Spalding and his
associates; in New York, Ward and his associ-
j 11 1. . Tin w nrH hta
ates are seeaing to oispiaco iui. j "
associates. I am told that in Philadelphia one
Mr. Love and other Brotherhood capitalists are
trying to displace Colonel Rogers and Mr.
Heach. In Boston, 'Hi Hi' Dixwell and others
are trying to displace Conant, Soden and
Billings, and so I might particularise the new
Brotherhood capitalists in the other Leaguo
HE. WAKD'S BEFLT.
He Points Out Where Mr. O'Neill Is Wrong
In Several Particular.
John M. Ward, the now famous leader of the
Brotherhood forces, arrived in the city yester
day to assist in the organization of the new
club. It is always a pleasure to talk to Mr.
Ward, his congeniality and rare intelligence
making him a most entertaining conversation
alist During a conversation with the writer he
And Mr. O'Neill states that there will bo no
Brotherhood clubs in Pittsburg or Cleveland,
Well, now. let me say that Mr. O'Neill is telling
what is absolutely false, and I am inclined to
think he is making these statements mali
ciously. There will be a club in Pittsburg, and
another m Cleveland, you can bet all that you
have on that ,
Thamtnnnil nntlnnV is ATCelle&t. We Will
have all our clubs organized before Monday,
and certainly there is no reason for worriment.
We will make somebody else feel worried be
fore we arrive at that stage. We will have
Slenty of star players, but we may or may not
ave Clarkson. I don't like the way that
Clarkson is acting; his actions certainly don't
seem creditable to himself, because, despite
the fact tbat he signed an agreement to sign
with the Brotherhood, he is now, if reports are
true, trying to make the old League and the
Brotherhood bid against each other for him.
Now Mr. Johnson should jnst ask Clarkson it
he is willing to play with the Brotherhood next
season for the same salary he had last season.
If Clarkson refuses, then let him go where he
chooses. I say this because he signed the same
definite contract with ns tbat all of the Boston
players signed, and if be resolves to go back on
ft, why, I don't think it will do him much good
in the eyes of the public. We are prepared to
battle for a principle, rather than for one man
or two men, or money. In fighting for jnst and
good moral principles, Tm confident the Amer
ican people will aid us."
Wr. Ward continued: "Our meeting, which
begins at New York on Monday, will mostly be
for matters of organization. I don't think
there will be any amalgamation between the
Brotherhood and the American Association.
The overtures for such action have been made
by the Association, and tbe Brotherhood, as an
organization, has not decided on the matter yet.
Personally, I am opposed to it, but it does not
follow that other representatives to the meeting
on Monday will be of the same opinion as my
self on the matter. However. I am inclined to
think tbat the feeling of the meeting will be
against amalgamation. I am not at all alarmed
about the legal fight which the League threat
ens to draw us into."
Mr. Ward will return to New York to-day.
He is looking somewhat worn out because of
the extraordinary amount of work he has per
formed during the last few weeks. If ever man
has worked for a rest John M. Ward has.

C. A. Weldenfeller, ot Chicago, Does Not
Want tbe Office.
Chicago, December U. The Timet says:
Charles A. Weldenfeller, President of the
Chicago Players' League team, is mentioned as
one of the m-et available men for the presi
dency of the Players' League of America.
The annual meeting occurs in New York Mon
day, and tbe players, with whom Mr. Welden
feller is a general favorite, are determined to
push bis claims. He, however, states posi
tively that bo is not a candidate and couldn't
accept the office if tendered him.
"My private interests," said Mr. Welden
feller to a reporter, "are such that it would be
an impossibility for me to give the necessary
time and attention to the presidency of the
Players' League. Who will be chosen Presi
dent? Well, that's a pretty delicate question,
but 1 tbink either Mr. McAlpin, of New York,
or Mr. Corey, of Boston, will be chosen.

As there is and has been a great deal of contro

Billy Myers is tbe real champion of tbem all, and

newspaper and 1 will .name one and let the two
newspapers each name a man, and let the two

IN THE SILENT TOMB.
The Mortal Benfoins of Jefferson
Davis Laid ttKest With the
MOST IMPRESSIVE CEREMONIES.
Bishop Galleher's Elaborate Funeral Eulogy
of the Dead Man.
AN IMMENSE CONCOUESE OP PEOPLE
Simultaneous Senlees Were Held in' All of the
Cities of the South.
The funeral of Jefferson Davis at New
Orleans yesterday was of the most imposing
character. Thousands of strangers were in
the city, and the crowd which witnessed the
ceremonies was enormous. Bishop Galle
her delivered the oration, in which he
strongly eulogised the dead leader.
HFCCULX. TILBOKAM TO THI DISPATCH-l
New Orleans, December 1L The
Southern Confederacy was laid at rest in
Metairie cemetery to-day with the most im
posing ceremonies the South has ever wit
nessed. The funeral of Jefferson Davis was
a lar grander demonstration on the part of
the South than anyone had expected. It
was felt by the Southern people, it is true,
that their distinguished chieftain who had
died was entitled to high honors, but it was
not known that the whole South would
arouse as they have done to show their
affection for him, to,pay their tribute to the
last man of the Confederacy.
It was this sentiment which made the dis
play so imposing the belief that with Mr.
Davis the Confederacy is buried. He was the
last link that bound the South to the past
He was the only living man who was a citi
zen of the Confederate States. All the
others had accepted1 a new allegiance and
were citizens of another country.
ONLT THE MEMORIES 'NOW.
"I will feel now that the war is over for
ever, as far at the South is concerned," said
one of the most prominent men present at
the funeral. "We have only its memories
It had been determined at first to bury
Mr. Davis on Sunday, and to give him a
funeral such as his position in history en
titled bimto; but when a thousand telegrams
poured in on the first day asking the date of
the funeral and saying that tens of thou
sands of persons desired to be present, it was
determined to postpone the ceremonies until
Wednesday, so as to give every man and
woman in the South who desired to attend
an opportunity to do so. Since then more
than a dozen committees of welcome, recep
tion and music bave been at work arrang
ing the details of the ceremonies.
New Orleans, always strong in such
demonstrations, but the city of parades
and processions was determined to
make this the greatest event in its
history. It was a fortunate suggestion, that
oi Captain Grey, of the Grand Army of the
Bepublic, that Mr. Davis should be buried
as a soldier, and that the funeral should be
a military one and the distinguished chief
tain carried to his grave on a caisson. This
did away with any feeling that might have
arisen in consequence of a too strong demon
stration of Confederate sentiment
THE OBAT NOT PROMINENT.
Indeed, this sentiment has not been very
marked through the ceremonies. The dead
chieftain wore a suit of Confederate gray, as
he has done for years, and here and there
among the floral offerings were tbe red,
white and red colors of the Confederacy.
These were the only tokens that could have
called up the late war. Although tens ot
thousands ot houses were decorated, not one
bore a Confederate flag, and the decoration
most general was a small American flag in
mourning, with tbe portrait of Mr. Davis in
the center. The whole town seemed hung
with the flags of the Union, and in the
funeral procession there were borne bat
three or four Confederate banners, all of
tbem being relics of the war.
As soon as the doors of the City Hall were
opened a stream ot visitors began to pour
through the death chamber to take a fare
well view of the remains of the famous Con
federate leader. The crowd of visitors was
even greater than that of yesterday, there
being hundreds of people from abroad whose
visit to this city had been delayed until to
day. It was not until 11:30 o'clock that the
lid of the casket closed down forever upon
the features of the dead.
Longa previous to that time the greatsqnare
immediately fronting the City Hall had be
come an unwieldly mass of eagerly m pa
thetic humanity. According to programme
the square proper was to be reserved exclu
sively for the military. In the enforcement
of this injunction, however, the large but by
no means adequate police lorce on duty ex
perienced innumerable obstacles, and it was
with the greatest difficulty that the swaying
multitude was kept beyond the prescribed
environments. The streets, balconies and
every available place from which either an
unobstructed or partial view could be had of
the portico of the municipal building were
crowded almost to suffocation.
SOUNDS OF MOURNING.
During all this time the air was laden
with funeral dirges, the solemn requiem of
the bells was heard on every hand, and
louder and deeper were the sounds of minute
guns that at intervals thnndered forth their
deep-mouthed tribute to the illustrious
dead. The body, notwithstanding the very
warm and exceptionally oppressive weather
of the past week, was remarkably well pre
served. The countenance presented an ex
pression of ''rapturous repose," and in no
wise had "decay's effacing fingers" yet
bletted out, mnch less tarnished, in the re
motest degree the lines of a face strikingly
attractive when lighted by the fire of genius
as it was wont to be.
Indeed, the Confederacy's beloved chief
tain, as he reposed on bis coffin this morn
ing, presented just such a picture as those
who knew and loved, him in life would like
best to carry in memory. At 12:10 the
casket was conveyed from the memorial hall
to an improvised catafalque in tbe center of
the front portico, whose massire pillars were
entwined with a prolusion of crepe. Over
the casket was thrown the soft folds of a
silken flag of the lost cause, as also the glit
tering saber with which the dead soldier
had carved fame and honor for himself and
glory and victory for his country on the
crimson fields of Chapuitepee and Monterey.
ABOUND THE COFFIN.
Immediately surrounding the coffin were
the clergy and the armed sentries, they
being the only persons admitted to a place
on the portico during the service. The
relatives of the deceased were assigned to
seats in the Mayor's parlor, from the win
dows of which they were enabled to see the

officiating clergymen of various denomina

Thompson, Mr. Davis, rector at Biloxi.

by the organ in the anthem, "Through the
valley of the shadow of death," after which
Bishop .Galleher made au address. He
"When we utter our prayers to-aay for those
who are distressed in mind, when we lift our
petitions to. the Most Mercitul and ask a bene
diction on tbe desolate, we remember that one
household above others is bitterly bereaved
and hearts closely knitted with our own are
deeply distressed. For tbe master of Seauvoir
lies dead under the drooping flag of the sad
dened city: the light of his dwelling has gone
out and left it lonely for1 all days to come.
"Sorely we grieve with those who weep the
tender tears of homely pain and trouble, and
there is not a sigh of the gulf breeze that
shakes tbe moss on tbe cypress trees sheltering
their home but finds an answer in our own
burdened breathings. We recall with sweet
sympathy the wifely woe tbat can be measured
onlv by the sacred depths at wifely devotion;
and our hearts go traveling across the heav
ing Atlantic seas to meet and comfort, if we
might the child, who, coming home, shall for
once not be able to brine all the sweet splen
dors of the sunshine with her.
A TRIBUTE OF TEARS.
Let us bend with the stricken .household and
pay the tribute of our tears. And then, ac
knowledging the stress and surge of a people's
sorrow, say that tbe stately tree of onr South
ern wood, planted in power, nourished in Kind
ly dews, branching in brave luxuriance and
scarred by many storms, "lies uprooted." Tbe
end of along and lofty life has come, and a
moving volume of human history bas been
closed and clasped. Tbe strarge and sudden
dignity of death has been added to the fine and
resolute dignity of living.
A man who iu his person and history symbol
ized tbe solemn convictions and tragic fortunes
of millions of men cannot pass into tbe gloom
that gathers around a grave withont sign or
token from the surcharged Dosoras of those he
leaves behind, and when , Jefferson, Davis,
reaching "the very oeamark of his utmost
sail," goes to his Gvd, not even the most
ignoble can chide the majestic mourning. Tbe
sorrowing honors of a las.' salute, stir not even
by a breath tbe stifled embers of strife, to
speak one word unwortlrof him and of the
hour. But I am here to say for our help and
inspiration that this man, as a Christian and a
Churchman, was a lover of all high and
righteous things; as a citizen, tvas fashioned in
tbe old faithful typo; as a soldier, was marked
and fitted for more than fame the Lord God
having set on him the seal of the liberties of
Gracious and gentle, even to the lowliest,
nay. especially to them; tender as he was brave,
he deserved to win all the love that followed
him. Fearless and unselfish, he could not well
escape tbe lifelong conflict to which he was
MANT GRIEVOUS TVEONGS.
Greatly and strangely misconceived he bore
injustice unbefitting his place. He suffered
macv and grievous wrongs, suffered most for
the sake of others, and those others will re
member bim and bis unflinching fidelity with
deepening gratitude, whllo the Potomac seeKs
the Chesapeake, or the Mississippi sweeps by
Briarfield on its way to the sea.
Following Bishop Galleher, the Bev. Dr.
Markham read the' lesson, while tbe Bev.
Mr. Martin repeated a Psalm, the Bev. Mr.
Bakewell tbe versicles,andtheBev. Thomp
son the creed. And thus ended the services
at the City Hall, which, although simple and
brief, were wonderfully impressive.
Dnring this period the immense throng,
representing every conceivable variety of
religious and social predeliction, profession
and nationality, stood in reverential silence
and with heads uncovered. At the
conclnsion of the religious services, the
casket was borne by a detaohment of sol
diers to the handsomely decorated caisson,
which had been prepared especially for its
reception, and on which it was conveyed to
the cemetery. From the caisson arose a
catafalque consisting of a unique and beau
tifully designed canopy, measuring from
base to dome, eight feet in length and four
in width, and supported by sir bronze can
non, craped in between with mnskets.
THE STARS AND STRIPES.
The dome of the canopy is ornamented
in bronze with furled United States flags
craped upon either side. The sides of the
catafalque are superbly draped in black
cloth, with bullion fringes and gimp. The
casket rested on a slight elevation and the
caisson was drawn by six blacc horses, two
abreast, caprisoned in artillery harness and
clumes, and each animal led by a soldier in
"With marvelous military precision the
various seemingly unwieldy battalions
wheeled into line, preceded by a detach
ment of the city police and followed in tarn
by the clergy, pallbearers anitso on in their
respective,order until the mammoth proces
sion was formed. The procession, after
leaving the City Hall, proceeded up St.
Charles to Calliope, and from Calliope
moved into Camp, through to Chartres, to
St. Louis, to Boyal and on the canal in a
direct route to the cemetery. It was an
hour and ten minutes passing a given point.
As the grand funeral cortege traversed the
streets from the turrets of every church a
knell was tolled, tbe clank of sabers and the
tram of iron-shod feet echoed along the in
terminable lines, while soul-subduing dirges
blended with the solemn booming of the
minute gnns. Parts of the city not directly
located on the line of march or in any wise
remote from the scene of the pageant, were
to-day literally depopulated.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE DOING.
Some Who Travel, Some Who Do Not. and
Others Who Talk.
Senator Philetus Sawyer, of "Wisconsin,
passed through Pittsburg yesterday en route to
Chicago, where he will make some personal in
vestigations in certain Senate matters. He said
that he f ally believed that a dependent pension
bill will be passed. Every man who served three
months or more in the army and is In need of a
pension will receive it. A dependent pension
bill will meet with general approbation, even
among the more conservative. It will put a stop
to private pension hills. A dependent pension
bill will make private bUIs unnecessary. So
many of these private bills have a tendency to
transfer the whole Pension Bureau Into Con
gress. Every man who served his country, and
can show an honorable record, and is now in
need, should certainly be aided. In speaking of
the organization of Congress the Senator said
that the naming of McKinley as Chairman of
the Ways and Means Committee was a wise
choice. The Senator spoke in terms ot praise
of Colonel Thomas M. Bayne. a new member on
the Ways and Means Committee, and said he
was especially fitted for the place.
E. G. Rankin, who has been cashier of
the Bank of McKeesport since its establish
ment, resigned yesterday.. He will next month
take charge of the coal business of Watson k
Co. at Monongahela City, in which he is a part
ner. Thomas D. Gardner, who has been with
the People's Bank for ten years, will succeed
Miss Bessie Holmes, who has been re
siding with her sister, Mrs. Taylor, for the past
year, left last night for New York to spend the
Christmas holidays. Miss Holmes hopes to re
