THE SCB ANTON TRIBUNE -FRIDAY MOENDTG. OCTOBER 19. 1894.
THE NEXT EASTERN LEAGUE
Funny Business in a Secret New York
THERE IS TO BE A FREEZE-CUT
Scranton' Position In the Game Is Net
Mentioned, but Humor Says That
Some Heads Must Foil-Powers
to Succeed Himself.
Several days ago a snap-shot meet
ing ot a few Eastern league base ball
magnates was held In Jersey City, pre
liminary to a meeting to be fully repre
sented In New York. The matter Is of
local Interest from the fact that there
is a rumored disposition that some
cities which figured in the Eastern
league will be frozen out.
A few days ago a secret meeting was
held In New York among some of the
directors and next year's prospects
talked over. The Syracuse Standard
says that George M. Kuntzsch of that
place was one of the members present
but was as reticent aa a cigar sign
about giving it away. He had attended
a secret meeting of three members of
the Eastern leuguo. The representa
tives of Providence, Buffalo and Syra
cuse met In Jersey City, so their pres
ence would not be observed, and as a re
HUlt the press associations were not
aware of it. A. O. Batchelder, of the
Buffalo Courier, was the only newspa
per man present, and he was excused
from the gathering.
Kuntzsch Was Uctlcent.
Mr. Kuntzsch would say nothlnpabout
the proceedings except that Patrick T.
Powers would again be president of the
Eastern league, and rumors that he was
to tuke the management of the Npw
York team next season have no founda
tion. Beyond this Mr. Kuntzsch is si
lent, except thnt the interests of the
lengue were talked over.
It is believed, however, that no other
cities were Invited to the cladestine
gathering and that a scheme is on foot
to re-organlze the Eastern league and
freeze out several clubs that are now in
the circuit. It Is a sure thing that
Buffalo, Providence and Syracuse thor
oughly understand each other and have
shaken hands to stand together, though
neither Providence nor Buffalo have
been granted any concession.
Allentown, or Yonkers, as it was
railed the latter end of the season, will
not be in the league next year. Al
Johnson is tired of putting up his
money for nothing and will back the
club no longer.
It Is pretty certain that Toronto and
Kochester will be In the circuit next
seuson. C. A. Lelngruber, of Roches
ter, has taken the matter In hand, and
promises good financial backing. New
ark, N. J., is another likely city to find
a place in the league. Sunday games
can be played there.
Syracuse will probably get a short
stop in Monte Cross place from some
of the New England league clubs.
Nicholson, the second bnseman of the
Erie team, whom Mr. Kuntzsch was
endeavoring to get, has been drafted
Providence has been slightly weak
ened by the loss of Pitcher Sullivan,
who has been drafted by Boston.
The Eastern league has played al
most as strong base ball as the Na
tlonal league. This is shown by the
general grabbing of players by the big
league from the minor ones. The seiz
ure of Western league men 'has been
particularly lively. Solux City was
frozen out, and Hart, Stewart and Jen
nlngs were drafted by Chclago.
RIVAL BASEBALL LEAGUE.
Will the New Association Become a Real
ity, oris It Only a Bluff.
There seems to be a deep rooted fear
In the circle of old base ball rulers that
a new base ball association is to be or
ganized. The originators are not seek
ing notoriety in this matter Just yet.
Their plans were prematurely disclosed,
they say, by the manager of the Cincin
Ex-Manager Billy Barnie, of the
Louisville club, accuses Manager Com
Iskey of breach of faith. According
to Barnie, who Is mentioned as one
of the prime movers in forming the new
association, Comlskey was approached
by one of the men interested, who made
nn offer for Comlskey to take the man
agement of a club representing the
new association in St. Louis.
Comlskey, it is alleged, seized upon
the offer with avidity. On second
thoughts he changed his mind for the
purpose of holding to the management
ot the Cincinnati club for another year,
and exposed the whole Bcheme to John
T.Brush. In this way the new deal was
communicated to the National league.
It Is said that Al Johnson, who
started the Idea of the new league, has
backed out, but this does not mean
anything, as Johnson was induced to
keep his hands off the new movement.
The boom, once started, is being
worked by Billy Barnie, Fred Pfeffer,
A. C. Buckenberger and A. L. De Roy.
Kx-Manager Barnie is reported to have
said: "There is room in certain cities
for two clubs with a non-confllctlng
schedule." Outside of New York,
Barnie has mapped out a circuit which
includes Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Pitts
burg, Chicago, Boston, Washington,
Cincinnati and St. Louis.
Who is backing the new association
is a point no one can find out. The
members of the National league put
no faith in the proposition of the new
association planning to play a Sunday
ball game and charge 25 cents.
.P. T. Powers, president of the East
ern league, denies that Buffalo and
Providence are in any way concerned,
as they are pledged to the Eastern
However, ex-Manager Barnie pro
fesses to know what he la talking about
and says that "the new league will be
a go sure, and make no mistake about
It." New York Herald.
COMING MUSICAL EVENT.
Marie Louise Bailey and Miss Nina Ruth
bono Will Be Attractions.
The great musical affair in prospect
i the concert In which Marie Lmiiao
Bailey will be the chief attraction. She
will be ably seconded by Miss Nina
Kathbone, the beautiful and maiestin
songstress who made favor for herself
ana increased popularity for the Seldl
concerts last season.
She is possessed of a rich, musical
soprano voice of great range and flex
ibility. Her dramatic handling of
heavy Wagnerian numbers has earned
for her the highest recognition of most
discriminating critics. Of Miss Bailey
the opinion seems to prevail among
musicians that she will be accorded an
enthusiastic reception. Her piano play.
Ing is said to be phenomenal, in fire,
brilliancy and feeling, while her tech
nique la faultless and her personality
attractive and individual.
She has been engaged for a season of
one hundred concerts, and her Scran
ton engagement will bring her here
eariy next montn.
ROBERTSAND A CROWBAR.
Combined In Tearing Down House of
Neighbor Evan Thomas.
Thomas Koberts, a Welsh miner, of
the North End, had some differences
with his neighbor, Evan Thomas, on
Wednesday, and during the early hours
of yesterday morning proceeded to get
even by smashing the doora and win
dows of Thomas' house. When Roberts
had pried off a few boards of the build
ing; with a crowbar and began to de
mollsh the porch, neighbor Thomas
went for a policeman.
Patrolmen Marker and Peters Inter
rupted Roberts in his work, placed him
in the police station and entered a
charge of drunkenness and disorderly
conduct against him. Yesterday Alder
man Fuller fined him $10 and placed
him under $500 ball to keep the peace.
IN LOCAL THEATERS.
"The Tide of Life." an interesting
drama of New York life, will be seen at
tne f rothlnghnm tonight and Saturday
afternoon and evening. The play has
a large cast and the management car
ries a carload of scenery which is
mostly of an original and realistic char
acter. Life in the great city is deplet
ed true to life and In the second act a
quintet of tramps In a barn which they
call their hotel, make any amount ot
fun and jollity. The entire cast is
capable and the specialties which are
Introduced are taking.
II II II
"The New Ole Olson" which will be
seen at the Academy of Music tonight
and tomorrow night stands at the head
of dialect plays. It has won Its place
among the best comedy creations of the
American stage, and Is generally re.
garded as a character study of unusual
merit. Its author is Ous Heege, tne
originator of Anglo-Scandinavian dia
lect comedy, and a very successful ac
tor and playwright. "Ole Olson" Is
seen this season In a new dress, being
entirely re-constructed and materially
altered by the author who has been en
gaged upon the work of re-wrltlng the
comedy during the past summer. The
specialties introduced form an enter
taining part of the performance. The
piece now abounds in bright and re
freshing novelties and new and clevei
specialties, and the music and dancing
Is said to be a particular feature of the
II II ii
Davis' theater will be well patronized
today and tomorrow, as In addition to
the clever feats performed by Sampson,
nnd referred to In another column,
ManHger Davis has secured the Vlvlnn
De Monto Hpeclalty company. Messrs.
Dllks and Wade, the musical come
dlans, are leading men In their l'n" nn'l
their witticisms In th laughnb'o per
formance of "You Don't Snv So," create
a continuous roar of laughter. Bnlly
and Burdell, the eccentric com"dlnns.
are exceedingly humorous nnd reclvei
a well merited encore yesterday. Miss
Vivian De Monto, the songstress, was
also accorded a hearty reception The
entire programme Is thoroughly sus
tained and is of the best quality from
the first to last.
HELD iMORRISSEY'S HAM).
Mrs. Slcklcr Did Not Decipher Lines on
It to Owner's Satisfaction.
At 337 Center street the ungol of
peace used to extend a fostering hand
until three days ago. The white winged
seraph bundled his kit nnd Hod away
nud In his stead now reigns the imp of
discord and dissension. Three people
dwell under that roof, Mrs. Elizabeth
Slckler, Mrs. Julia Thompson and
Michael Morrlssey. Mrs. Slcklcr Is a
fortune teller and Mornssey is u "gen
tleman." Mrs. Thompson Is his wife.
The other night Mrs. Slckler began to
read Morrlssey's past and future by
the lines of hiB hand. She told him that
he had lately been concrned in a post
ofllce robbery and still had some of the
stolen stamps around him, but the gov
ernment edifice that he had plundered
was not the Scrnnton post ofilce. As
near as she could Judge it was the
Buffalo post office. Two fingers of his
hand were missing and the absence of
the digits "crossed" the lines and she
could read no further.
Morrlssey, in return for her service,
proceeded to strangle her. He also
heaped other Indignities upon her. She
had a warrant for assault Issued by
Alderman Fltzslmmons, and vt the
hearing the alderman was obliged to
dischurge the defendant, no rational
evidence being given to hold him. She
left the office Baying that the clouds
looked black for her.
SAMPSON AT DAVIS'.
He Claims to Lift Ileavior Weights Than
Those Handled by Sandow.
Sampson, who is announced as "the
strongest man living." opened his en
gagements at Davis' theater yesterday
ana was accorded a hearty reception.
According to his udmirers It is claimed
that Sampson excels Sandow in the
weight of dumbells and bars raised
nnd handled, and there is no doubt that
his work is most wonderful.
The steel bar, which was poised
with one hand, weighed 300 pounds and
was held for a considerable period and
brought down with comparative ease.
The 20 pound dumbell was manipu
lated with dexterity nnd showed that
Sampson was master of the task. His
best feat was the lifting of and main'
talning 312 pounds weight while sus
pended head downwards.
The performance throughout was ex
cellent and will be a great attraction
during today and tomorrow.

Margaret Barry's Kitchen.
HAD REALISTIC EFFECTS
One Was Furnished hv Pint tne Mrs.
Hurry Astrldo a Horse-Shot a Tor
mentor In the Neck-Other
Cases Heard in Court,
A talc that is almost Incredible was
related in quurter sessions caurt yester
day concerning life In the borough
of Archbald, which has of late been
earning a most unenviable reputation
Mrs. Margaret Barrv. the heroine of
the tale, wag put on trial before Judge
Edwards, charged with keeping a tip
pling house and with shooting Patrick
nan, an Archbald younir man. In tht
neck. She was defended by Attorneys
Hulslanderand Vosburg, and E. C. New
comb and District Att iirnpv James
Neill conducted the prosecution.
The testimony of the commonwealth
showed that on Aug. 9 Hart and a num
ber of friends were in Mrs. Barry's
ouse and began to produce the "Coun-
y Circus, using her kitchen as a
stage. At a given point in the nlav a
oung man named Kenny rode into the
house on the back of a horse to give
rennstlc effect to the performance.
Then It occurred to the young men
that it would be a good Idea to put
Mrs. Barry astride of the hnrsi. She
bjecled to assuming such an un-
omanly position, as she wim not at
tired In bloomers, but her euests would
not be denied.
Mrs. Hurry Mounts the Horse.
They lifted her onto a stove, nnd
Ith that as a stlrrun. made her
mount the horse, which was led about
lie room for a time. Mrs. Rnrrv besecd
o lie relieved" from her awkward nosi-
tlon, and at length was let down. Ac-
uruing to the testimony of the com
monwealth's witnesses, on eross-exum-
nation. Kart and others then lnid
anils on hor playfully. She resented
their action and ran upstairs. Hart
followed her nnd she got a revolver and
shot him in the neck.
A number of witnesses testified to
having purchased liquor In Mrs. Bnr-
y s place. No evidence was offered by
the defense In either case. In the
shooting case It was evident that Mrs
Barry had sufficient provocation to
warrant her In using a weapon to pro
tect herself. The evidence in the tip
pling house case seemed to be conclu
sive against her. Judge Edwards, In
charging the Jury, condemned the law-
ssness that is prevalent at Archbald,
and said that If he had the councllmen
and police officials of that borough be
fore him he would deliver to tnem a
lecture that might be productive of
good results. At 4 o'clock the jury re
tired to consider the case.
Mangan Denied the Theft.
Martin Mangan, who was charged
with the larceny of tools owned by
George Van Scooter, of the West Side,
went on the Btand In the main court
room yesterday morning and denied
having committed the theft he was
charged with. He said that he met a
man named Murphy on the street who
asked him to buy a lot of tools he had
with him. Mangan said he did not want
to purchase them ond then Murphy
asked if he would not take them to J. C,
King's second hand store and sell them
for him. Mangnn consented to do so and
In that way got into trouble. The Jury
found Mangan guilty of receiving
Thomas Costello was next arraigned
to answer a cnarge of assault and bat
tory preferred by John Lynch. Both
men reside in Mlnooka and the trouble
between them, occurred on Sent. 1.
Lynch said that he was In his house
drinking with several friends about II
o clock on the. night of Sept. 1 and
(josteuo came along. He wanted
to enter the house and join the partv.
but Lynch objected. Costello then
picked up a stone and hit Lynch over
the eye with it inflicting a deep cut.
Another Version of Affair.
Costello said that on the night In
question he was standing in Lynch's
yara taming to Mrs. Lynch and a man
named Jeffrey, when Lynch came along
with a pail of beer. He was Intoxicated.
Mrs. Lynch asked witness to step onto
tne nouse, out her husband ob ected
and advanced threateningly toward him.
He snoved Lynch away and the latter
then aimed a blow at him which Cos
tello dodged. Lynch lost his balance
and fell on a pile of stones, sustaining
tne cut over tne eye of which he com
plains. A verdict of not guiltv was re.
turned and the defendant directed to
pay the costs.
Frank Kowalewski was charged be.
fore Judge Gunsterwlthhavlngknocked
out one of the front teeth of John Click
In a saloon at Austin Heights. Frank
went on the stand and swore that he
was not the stone thrower. He held
that a man who has fled to Europe was
tne guilty person. The Jury thought
otherwise nnd returned a verdict of
guilty. Judge Gunster sentenced Kow-
alewskl to pay a fine of $1, costs and
spend thirty days in the county jail
William Cumphcll Convicted.
Breaking open a tool house of the
Erie and Wyoming Valley railroad
company at Spring Brook and stealing
a number or carpenters' tools was the
charge William Campbell was called
upon to answer. The tools were left at
John McDonald s hotel by Cnmnbell,
who had been doing some work there
He was arrested by Detctlve Martin
Crlppen, who went on the stond nnd
swore that at the ofllce of the Justice of
the peace, where the preliminary heating
was held, Campbell broke down and ad
mitted that he opened the tool house
and stole some of the tools, but was
drunk at the time.
Campbell, when he went on the stand.
denied ever having made such a con
fession and said he found the tooto in
the woods while going from Mooslc to
Spring Brook, and took them to Mc
Donald's hotel and left them thi re, tell
ing McDonald he did not want them. A
verdict of guilty1 was returned nnd
Campbell was sentenced to pny a fine
of $10, costs and spend sentenced to

ment of the costs In the case of the

verdict of not guilty was tnken In the
case of Charles Gardner charged with

of the Hillside Home since his arrest
Wednesday the court made an order for
his return to the county Jail, the phy
sician at the Hillside Home declaring
that he has recovered his reason.
I arnliain Not Guilty.
The trial of Llob Farnlmm, of Pen
ton, charged by k, c. Decker with as
sault and battery, was resumed yester
day mornhiK before Judpe Kdwurds.
Furnham'8 testimony went to prove
that Decker had provoked the trouble,
and a verdict of not Kullty wns returned
and the costs divided. There was no
evidence to convict Stewart Conkle of
the chance of lurceny and receiving pre
ferred against htm by Patrick Doran,
and a verdict of not guilty was re
turned. Evan Jqnea was convicted of being
the father of the child Miss Margaret
L. Llewelyn, of Luzerne Btreet, this
city, became the mother of on Oct. 21,
1893. It died in the following December
in one of the foundling homes of the
city. The girl said she Is 18 years old
but Is so small and girlish looking that
she would easily pass for 15. After
the birth of the child Jones left the city
and was not arrested until last August.
He was represented by Attorney Joseph
O'Brien, but offered no defense. Judge
Gunster sentenced him to pay a tine
of $20 to the Scranton poor district and
$35 to the mother of the child. He had
not the money necessary to pay these
amounts and went to the county jail.
John Trlbblns, who was tried Wednes
day for burglarizing the store of Alex
ander Catterson at Spring Brook, was
found guilty yesterday and sentenced

Martin Was Shot At.
When court adjourned In No. 1 Joseph
Moyles, of Providence, was on trial for
shooting at Martin Murphy. The
ter said he went to a hydrant on Moyles'
premises to get a drink of wate.r and
as' he was going away Moyles shot at
him twice. Attorneys George S. Horn
and It. J. Murray appear for the de
fendant, and District Attorney Kelly
is upholding the majesty of th law.
A Jury was sworn in No. 2 Just before
adjournment to try Walter and Adam
Snyder, of Jermyn, special officers, who
are charged with having pointed fire
arms at Peter McDonald and Richard
Hughes on June 3.0. Evidence will be
Probably the happiest, If not the
proudest, man In Scranton today Is Rev.
warren (i. Partridge, the ever cour
teous pastorof the Penn Avenue Baptist
church. He has emerged from the cen-
tennlul and church anniversaries with
congratulations from all quarters and
has, by his persuasive eloquence, ex
tracted promises from his congregation
to pay the sum of over $3,000 by Janu
ary next for the extinction of the church
debt. Mr. Pnrtrldge Is a "born pastor,"
as lie can direct the numerous church
organizations, maintain the standard
and efficiency of the Sunday school,
which, with Luther Keller the superin
tendent, he has brought to a fctatc of
perfection, and, moreover, Is a good
preacher, one who atracts general at
tention and pivnuhes a pure and un
adulterated Gospel. One strong point
in Mr. Jartriclge is tnat lie appreciates
the value of good music as contributing
to the brightness of religious services,
and the results are to be Been In the
large congregations of Ptmn Avenue

Rev. Dr. W. P. Helllngs has, during
the past week, greeted so many friends
In Scranton that his right hand must be
weary of the task, but the constant
smile of the reverend gentleman at
tracts even the remotest acquaintance
of bye-gone days. He Is deeply Im
pressed with the kindness of his old
friends and will carry back to Omaha,
Neb., lasting tokens of the affection of
his old associates, in his sermons Dr.
Hellings is profoundly theological and
every sentence seems to be constructed
with minute deliberation and not one
Inappropriate word can be heard
throughout the sermon. The language.
besides being scholarly, Is Intelligent to
his audience, a combination so essen

delivery has been described as "charm
One of the agreeable business sur
prises of this region, 'and one that has
been well received by Scranton people,
Is the success attending Frank M. Fox a
management of the new Hotel Anthra
cite In Carbondale. This popular young
boniface came an entire stranger Into
the Lackawanna valley to develop a
business which his best friends told
him would end In financial disaster.
Mr. Fox Is the typical later-day land
lord. Young, polished, well mannered,
and gifted with good taste, he was not
long In making friends. Added to these
qualities, ho has a practical knowledge
of the hotel business, which he has fol
lowed from youth, and Is well educated.
He has become an enthusiastic Carbon
dallan, but spares time occasionally to
cement his popularity with many Scran

P. W. Gallagher is getting bigger and
more genial than ever since he laid
down the reportoiial pencil to become
one of the Traction company's trusted
officials. There are few men In the city
who have Mr. Gallagher's capacity for
work and yet he never appears In a
hurry. He docs not cut his numerous
callers short on the plea of lack of time.
When a "news hustler," P. W. was at
once the envy and nightmare of his fel
low workers, for no one that covered the
same territory as Mr. Gallagher could
go home after his work was done satis
fled' that he was not "scooped." Since
he became a street railway otllolal, Mr.
Gallagher has given evidence anew that
It Is possible fur a man to achieve suc

TO our patrons:
Wushbtiru-Croshy Co. Wish to nssiirc their many pat
ronstliat they will this vear hold to their uaual custom
of milliuR STKICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop
is fully cured. New wheat is now upon the market, and
owing to the excessively dry weather many millers are
of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Wushburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
placed Washburn-Crosby Co.'s Hour far above other
