,Ihe fact that the officials of the Philadel
phia Players League Club have instituted
proceedings against -Myers ana Thompson
and the officials of the Philadelphia Na
tional League Clnb is creating considerable
comment in baseball circles here and else
where. It was stated on reliable authrity
yesterday afternoon that the Philadelphia

may at any time be entered against Miller and
Beckley. An official of the local Brotherhood
steam said yesterday afternoon:
"WTLIi PBOSECTTTE DESERTERS.
"Most certainly we do not mean to allow
these desertions pass to unnoticed. We can cet
alone without deserters, but depend neon it we
will not allow them to go unpunished if we
have law on our side. If the case coes against
'Myers and Thompson we will proceed against
Miller and Beetle j. Under any circumstances
we mar prosecute Miller. I don't say that the
Knew Leasne has onranlred a system to prose
Rente deserters, but I do say that all of them
wni.be attended to.
Well," continued the officials, "onr team Is
nearly complete. I don't think that Manager
Hanlon will sign moretnan about two players
in addition to those we have. He is after a
trst-clxss pitcheraod I think we'll get him."
k President Nimick is not In the least concerned
" about the suitof the new League against Myers
i and Thompson. During a conversation the
rjiPresident said: "The suits will amount to
nothing at all. Why the thing Is ridiculous
landTll show how it is. If the law recognizes
lithe validity xif the contracts it will mean that
f every League player has in the first place vio
lated an agreement with the National League.
r THE LEAGUE'S rrEST CLAIM.
"This then will mean that tosign another con
V tract is illegal, so that the new League players
fe.are in a very foolish position. If the contracts
Rare not legally binding, then the -suits are still
IDworthlesa, Whatever way we look at It the
;- 'players of the new League have a worthless

Ibutwe may make things very uncomfortable
tor somebody before we aretnrongn. we are
' ,belng gnlaea by tne law in me course we are
' pursulnc. and are moving very cautiously."
Regarding the proposed trip of the team Mr.
Nlraick said: "1 expect the trip will be a great
one for the players. Of course I expect to have
a manager when the tram starts on the trip,
but I cannot say who he wil' be. lam in hopes

The general opinion regarding the baseball
sniis and counter suits seems to be that they
are much to be regretted. They will engender
the bitterest kind of feelings and cause enmi
ties that will probably last a life time. It is not
expected, however, that any legal fight will
take place here. The opinion of the Pbiladel

"WASHXKOTOir. December 29. The -Post, In
its baseball column, says: The American As-
injsodation is making a desperate effort to bol
Ifster its depleted ranks, and since the desertion
spot Brooklyn, Cincinnati and Baltimore and
pjKansas City it has cast its covetons eyes on
"tbe League club in this city.and has been doing
'""' ev erything possible to place a club here. Last
;. Friday Messrs. Sharslg and Whitaker, of the
Athletics, and Powers, of the Hochesters, were
In tin city for the purpose of looking over the
ground and endeavoring to induce persons to
. invest in tne venture.
L They have been appointed delegates to visit
, , the cities where it is thought there is a pros
f pect of locating a clnb. With this idea In view
they came to Washington on Friday.
' They claim to lave positive assurance
p that Washington would not be represented in
4 the Leagne next season, although the source
t .of the information wasn't given. It was said,
FShowever, to come from prominent members of
tithe Leacne and from Whitaker especially, who
tf- was emphatic in his declaration that unless
f-Washington embraced the opportunity to come
F intbe Association fold, they wouldn't be in
BHthe baseball world next season. He argued
C that Washington wouldmake an excellent 25
lucent town, and the members were so anxious
tf!to get in that they would be willing tocon
jjjjtributo enough players from the surplus of
tfthelr clubs to give this city a first-class team.
"-iThe delegates didn't go to see President
Hewitt, for tbey said they didn't want him in
the new clnb. They declared be was bluffing
2 ,when he announced that be proposed to re-
.main in the League, and was doing so for the
jfjpunKxe of forcing either the League to pay
Mm a big price for his.Iranchise or to sell it to
come clnb which is anxious to becomealeague
member, probably Baltimore.
;. They further said they had the most positive
jffiassurances from members of the League that
Washington would not be represented next
jgiseason, and that If necessary it would be
Hjtdropped by the League it it could not be gotten
Root in any other manner. They saw several
Efparrles while here,and met with a vnry encour
agingieception. The promise was given that
K.1T it was possible an American Association team
fewould be placed here, and the delegates re-B-tumed
home thoroughly satisfied with the re
Neult of their mission and labors, and confident
Stthat Washington would be an Association dab
jf President Hewitt was indignant last night
r when he was told of the visit of the Association

Baltimore, December 29. Manager Barnie
to-day received a dispatch from the Secretary
of the Lowell club, informing him of the fact
that on Monday his club, together with the
Worcester and Hartford clubs, would resign
their membership of the Atlantic Asso
ciation, thereby causing a dissolution
of this institution, as it will leave
but three members. The telegram says fur
ther, that it was understood that Manager
Barnie had endeavored to get the other clubs
to pledge themselves that at the coming meet
ing of the Atlantic Association, in January,
that these three clubs would be thrown ont.
Should the three clubs resign. It is under
stood that Jersey City will be admitted, to
make the fourth club, and In order to remain
a member of the national agreement, Troy and
Albany will no doubt be admitted. Manager
Barnie denies that he has put up any job
against these three clubs.

Woecesteb, Mas&, December 29. The
action of the Worcester baseball management
in casting its lot with the newly formed New
England League, has caused considerable ex
cltement m the remnant of the Atlantic As- J
sociation. Secretary Braden, of the Atlantic
Association, ttwlay telegraphed Secretary
Pierce, of the Worcesters; as follows: "See
by the morninc papers that yon have Joined the

plied: "Will explain our position when you do

The Worcester men believe that Barnie has
not joined the Atlantic Association in good
faith, and that he is only using bis membership
to bold his players until he can get a foothold
in some otherstronger league.
THE M'EEESPORT CLUB.
Lots of Money to be Spent and a New Player
The McKeesport Baseball Association is de
termined not to be outdone by any Tri-State
League club for a good park, and has gone to
great expense in leveling the park ground and
will double tbe size of the grand stand, beside
adding a press box and scorer's place. A third
story apartment will be added for the man who
will be in charge of the park, and the privileges
will be disposed of.
The Association expects to sign to-morrow J.
P. Johns, of Allegheny, as third baseman. He
is a good catcher. He played the last two sea
sons with Saginaw, Mich., and made a fine
record as a base runner, a hitter and a third
baseman. The club will not select a manager
for six weeks, and Torreyson will in the mean
time complete the work of signing all men de
sired to fill out the list.
On the Fence.
Bosto v, December 29. A private, letter was
received here to-day from one of the Boston
players in San Francisco, in which itwas seated
that Nash and Hardie Bichardson were favor
able to the Leagne, and were liable to accept
the offers of the triumvirs inside of a week.
A LETTER FBOM 8PLAN.
The Fnmons Driver Talks Abont the Trotter
In a letter from England. John Splan, the
driver, hat the following to say abont trotters
and trotting in that country:
What surprises me more than anything else
is the interest the English people take in the
American trotting horse. I bad always been
told that they only cared for the gallopers.
Such is not the case. I could have sold every
trotting horse we brought to this country In
less than one week, at prices that would have
given Messrs. Barnum x Bailey a handsome
profit, had they wished to dispose of them. I
have never been asked about our runners, but
am kept very busy answering all sorts of
questions about the trotters. Everyone here
knows Maud S and her record, and if she was
on exhibition in London today, more people
wonld go see her than tbey would if she was
exhibited In New York City. If tbe America
breeders would take as mnch pains and interest
in introducing the trotter in this country as an
ordinary "Yank" would hi introducing a
mouse trap, they would have as good a market
here for their horses as tbey have at home.
The English are first-class judges as to
soundness, eta, and great believers in pedi
gree, so that in shipping horses to this country
for sale there are a lew things absolutely nec
essary to tbe success of the undertaking good
feet and legs, no toeweights or boots. A good,
strong, well-made and well-mannered horse,
able to draw a fair-sized trap a 2-10 gait on a
smooth road can be sold at fair prices any
time. 1 have talked with a foreigner here who
has bought American horses, and he told me
that it was almost impossible to get a sound
horse from Americi. I suggested to him that
perhaps he bad always bought those that were
unsound. He replied that ho had never been
to onr country, but that a friend of bis had
bought them for him, and written him that all
our horses had faulty legs. He seemed quite
surprised when I took him to the stable and
showed him ten horses with records from 217
to 2:40. and every one with sound, clean legs,
without spot or blemish. One of the best in
formed gentlemen on the trotting horse ques
tion that I have met here is Mr. J. Irvine Lup
ton. He has written several "very valuable
books on the horse, and in one of them pays a
very high compliment to the American trotter,
and believes that, with very little effort, not
only the trotting horse for road purposes, but
that trotting races will become popular in this
BIG TURF BETTING.
Why Pittsburg" Phil Patronizes Bookmaker
Referring to the Eastern races a special cor
respondent of" the Eoritman says:
"Some of the transactions were immense for
winter racing. The last two that I saw, as I
struggled out of the ring with a trashed hat and
a torn overcoat; were $3,600 to TOO against
Rapine to win, and S1.3J0 to S200 Letretia a

Among other things It has decided that a race

had hitherto been the cause of much dispute.
It was decided that the shot shall be a sphere

Dick Keating Defeats Edward Corey After
23 Hard Rounds.
Lafatxttk, Ind., December 29. One of the
gamiest glove fights fought in Indiana began
'this morning at 7.-45 o'clock in a wooded pasture
in Boone county, midway between Lebanon
and Crawfordsville. Between 400 and COO per
sons witnessed the battle, and some of the farm
ers at the fight camped there last night to
be in at the start. Tbe principals were Rich
ard Keating, of this city, who has never lost a
fight, and Edward Corey, of Crawfordsville, a
novice who to-day proved himself a pugilist.
The men were evenly matched in weight 155
pounds ahd height. Keating bad trained but
little, being too confident, and Corey stripped
in fine condition.
In the first rounds Corey received several
stinging upper cuts, but got in heavily on
Keatlng's nbs, and won the first knock-down
by a corker, landing on Keating's mouth. It
was a hammer and tongs almost continuously
from that time on. with Corey having the best
of it. In round 15 Keating went to the grass
three times by blows over tbe heart. Cantlous
sparring followed, and in the twenty-tblrd
round Keating touched Corey lightly on the
nose with his left hand and swung his right
just below the left ear. It was the decisive
blow. Corey was knocked out clean and com
pletely. The purse amounted to $350.
Mny Fight Again.
There may be another match arranged be
tween MikeCnshlng and Austin Gibbons, tbe
Paterson lad wbo is the present 125-pound
champion. Jlrhmy Dumas, the well-known
trainer, was seen to flash $500 on the tracl. yes
terday and offer to backCushing against Gib
bons for that amount. "Besides." said Jimmy,
Til guarantee a purse of 11,500, maaing tbe
total amonnt to battle for $2,500. If Gibbons'
backer would like to make a new match, this is
his chance. There will be more money In this
fight than in the last one. and it will be run
altogether differently. If the Paterson people
are looking for a blgber game, why, then, they
can look for it" New York Sun.

The opinion that the Leacne will reduce its

In tbe future, when tbe racing season of 1SS9
is alluded to, says an English paper, it will be
called "the Duke of Portland's year." To win
somethinglike 74,000 in stakes between April
and the end of October is a great feat, and is
all the more remarkable, as it is abont twice as
much as when Lord Falmouth nearly carried

ly, and made clear every face in the assemblage,
while the sound of hurrying footsteps were
deadened Ify the thick tcarpets below.
If o sooner bad tbe last sounds of the overture
died away, than Mr, Walter Mellis, terrifically
got up as a constable, in a helmet three sizes
too large for him, bounded like Harlequin
upon the scene. Then commenced an indis
criminate hauling-up-to-Justlce of the most in
offensive persons, for the most unheard-of
crimes. Blush bench and bar when ye learn
bow Mr. City Solicitor Elphinstone was ruth
lessly "pulled in," because he had sinned
against the Chairman's draconic code, by sot
removing his overcoat. The unfortunate legal
luminary was not even allowed to plead in his
own defense, and when it was divulged that he
was a lawyer, his flno was raised from IS cents
Doctor Frank McDonald was mulcted in the
sum of 10 cents for coming in a tall hat, and
Mr. Hellenberg suffered a like fine "for ap
pearing in a beastly state of sobriety." But
the climax was reached when Policeman Mellis
was himself arrested, and brought before the
tribunal, notwithstanding his furious' menace
or "having somebody's mooa witn nis ciud."
"What were you doing, sirf" sternly asked
Mr. Radamantbus Collins.
"Attending to my duties, sir," meekly re
ponded the now thoroughly cowed pseudo
copper. "Then you are fined a quarter for at
tending to your duties. Next case-!" and so the
fun went on "as merry as a marriage bell."
Presently came a perfectly appropriate inter
lude in the shape of an invasion bf sandwiches.
Music began again when tho audience had
taken "the cockles oft their epigastric
muscles;" and Mr. Leon J. Long, with banjo ac
companiment, sang a funny song, about a cer
tain worthy wbo by doingno work,and watching
his opportunity, "is on tbe police force
now." One of this worthy's feats was
"arresting a cow for licking her calf."
and he seemedto be addicted todroppiDgnlckels
in certain slots at the city nau wuen ne
wanted to step into office. Then James L.
Galvin, Introduced as lately from Paris (only
one man interpolated "Kentucky," and was
promptly fined), played tbe barrel organ with
skill and dexterity, following that entertain
ment with a woeful ditty, all about a bullfrog.
Then the national anthem, "Down Went Mc
Ginty," was excellently rendered by a member
of tbe Lewis Quartet.
Eleven o'clock bad now arrived, so the toast
of "The Absent Brothers" was drank with ac
claim, after which Mr. Gus Miller, of Grand
Opera House Band, gave a delightful cornet
solo. Chairman Collins being asked to con
tributor to the harmony, sang "Where the
Shamrock Grows" with taste and feeling, and
was fined 23 cents for not singing out of time.
Nothing daunted, however, he recited that
sweet old poem, "Caoch O'Leary and His
Dog," In a manner that fairly touched the
hearts of his bearers.
Mr. Charles Mitchell, of baseball note, then
sang another IrlsbLSong. and sang it in an in
imitable style. One of the truths, conveyed by
Mr. Mitchell was that "thelrish are" like to a
wild-erowlng flower: tbe more you pluck them,
the thicker they'll grow."
But "sooner or later the dearest must part,"
and at last it became time for the Elks to leave
the hall of merriment. A mighty ring was
formed, and, joining hands, the whole frater
nity in voices loud, and low. and deep, and
shrill, sang that parting chorus of everV con
vivial assembly, "from Indus to the Pole,"
Burns' glorious "Auld Lang Syne."
HUNDREDS OF flOESES STOLEN

JSFECIAL TILKGBAM TO THE DISPATCH.'
Chattanooga, December 29. "What
amounts to a panic exists among the farmers
of Davidson and adjoining counties of
Middle Tennessee. .An organized band of
horse thieves has been operating there
for several months without let or hindrance.
It is estimated that within the past six I
weeks 200 horses have been stolen ana run
into Kentucky fastnesses, where it is im
possible to follow them or the thieves. Not
one ot these animals has been recovered or
is likely to be.
It is supposed that the thieves have a
regnlar underground route to Cincinnati,
where the stolen horses are sold. General
WV H. Jackson, of the famous Belle Meade
farm, John Overton, and the Cockerills are
talking of perfecting a iarmers' association
to rout the robbers.

Philadelphia Reports Its First Death Resulting Jim
There is some speculation on the grippe's
stopping the wheels of national legislation.
Au old member of Congress says such a
thing wouldn't be without a precedent.
When the "Tyler grip" struck Congress
that body had to adjourn, ' Philadelphia
reports its first death resulting from the
ffBOM A STAT7 COBBE6POXDENT.-1
3VASHINGT.OH. December 29,The pre
valence of the present epidemic of in
fluenza, or "La Grippe," is the one topic ot
conversation here, as elsewhere. It is alsp
causing some uneasiness among members of
Congress, particularly the leaders of the
majority. That there is ground Jbr fear is
shown by what is claimed to be a fact, that
in this city alone, with 'a population of a
few over 200,000, there are no fewer than 60,
000 cases of the malady. It doesn't appear
to be of such virulence herein Washington
as in the European capitals and in Boston,
anofpossib'ly", ai is claimed by some, a "num
ber of the cases' are nothing more than ordi
nary colds and catarrhal affectiotiB. But
even admitting this, the situation, as it
affects Congress, is not much, improved.
AH OLD MEMBEE'S MEMOET.
An old member, who has kept himself
pretty well posted on' the history oi Con
gress, Said to-day: "I saw that on Saturday
the-hearing before the Ways and 'Means
Committee bad to be postponed on account
of the representatives of the Sngar Trust
beiug down with the grip. It is quite pos
sible that the progress of legislation may be
seriously blocked by the prevalence of this
disease. The Republican majority would
be considerably hampered if a few of their
members were to contract the malady, and
it may be that Congress itself may be com
pelled to take a recess for this cause. The
sticklers for precedence would be satisfied
in this case, for if my memory serves me
right, during tbe year 1837, when the 'Tvler
grip' was so prevalent, a disease just like
this, and imported from BussiaJn the same
way, so many of the members of both the'
House and Senate were taken down with it
that Congress had to take a .recess in order
to give them a chance to recover."
CONQEESS CATJGHX BT IT.
La Grippe has already begun its work on
the'Kational Legislature. Senator Ingalls
has it, and Congressman Ray, of Pennsyl
vania, is confined to his room with what is
believed to be influenza. There are. be
side, several members in this city wbo are
ill from some cause which they can't deter
mine, and the probabilities are that some of
them at least are in the grasp of la grippe.
Not only the members of Congress, but
the officers as well, are suffering from the
disease. The veteran Doorkeeper of the
Senate, Captain Bassett, is sneezing from
the-effects of it, and Journal Clerk Smith,
of the House, has gone to Fortress Monroe
to get rid of it. It may- be that history will
repeat itself, not only in the fact of a recur
rence of the epidemic, but also in the effects
it produces, and that Congress will be so at
tenuated in its active membership that the
only thing to do will be to. take -a holiday.
THEOBIES OF PHYSICIANS.
Prominent doctors here say that the rea
son of the epidemic of diseases of the throat
and mucous membrane iso-be found in the
peculiar atmospheric conditions now preva
lent in this country and abroad. One of
them, Dr. Sanlord, said to-day that his at
tention had been called to theiact that in
years when mould was likely to accumulate
cases ot diseases of the mucous membrane
were sure to be frequent. ''The dampness
of the past summer," said he, "was cer
tainly conducive to the formation of mould,
and the present epidemic of la grippe and
other throat and catarrhal affections follows
as a natural consequence, if the theory is a
The appearance of several cases of typhoid
fever, as well as of the "grip," among em
ployes of the Treasury Department build
ing, has again called attention to the horri
ble sanitary condition of that destroyer of
health and life. Apparently every plan
has been exhausted to secure perfect ventila
tion, and without success.
DRAUGHTS BAD AS POISON.
'The air is so foul it cannot be breathed
without opening windows beside which men
or women are forced to sit at desks, and to
open windows creates such a rush ofair as
to make the draught as dangerous as the
poison. Twenty thousand dollars was ex
pended by direction of the Forty-ninth Con
gress for improved ventilation, but just
where and how nobody knows.
Added to the fpul air, there is at this time
a general uncleanliness due to a lack of
watchfulness on tbe patt of those whose
duty it is to supervise the scrub-women, and
altogether, the life of a Treasury building
employe is such as to excite conspiracy and
a revolutionary outbreak.
A formal presentation of this state of
affairs will probably be made very soon, to
a committee of Congress for the fortieth
time, but it will probably result in no
greater acquisition of fresh air than at
present, unless au order is made to cut the
corridors on each floor through the rooms
that tbey may penetrate the outer walls, and
thus make an opening for the free circula
tion ofair. IilQHTKKS.

fWJCIAL TH.MSA1C TO XXX WSrATCH.l
Philadelphia, December 29,The
first death from influenza in Philadelphia
was reported to-day. It was the case of aa
8-year-old boy named John McLonghtin.
The immediate cause ot death, according to
the physician's certificate, was pneumonia,
but the doctor says pneumonia developed
from the. grip. Dr,"W. "W. N. Naylor, of
the Howard Hospital, had been steading
tbe child for two days, and urior to that
the case had been in the hands of Dr.
Robert Coyle. There is a conflict of opinion
between the, two physicians about the symp
toms developed by the child when first at
tacked. Dr. Coyne said to-night that he
did not discover any of the symptoms of
influenza. He thought tbe boy was suffer
ing with tonsilitis. Dr. Naylor. on the
other hand, is confident that the child was
first stricken with the grip.
"He had all the svmptoms of the grip,"
said Dr. Naylor: ''The severe headache,
sore throat, pain in the back and watery
eyes. The child was delicate and the cold,
settled on its lnngs, developed pneumonia,
and death followed. The best evidence to
me that the child was first stricken with the
grip is the fact that a brother and sister are
now suffering with it. These cases, bow
ever, are not dangerous. Then there are
three cases next door. This is, so far as I
know, tbe first death in the city that can be
traced to the,influenza."
