Troubles of New York Club.
The sad and untimely end of the
promising career of Manager Thomas
Cahill, of the Scranton Base Ball club,
has been a severe blow to the local
association. The members of it had
great confidence In Mr. Cahlll's Judg
ment and executive ability and had
given tilm instructions to Bpare no
reasonable expense or endeavor to give
Scranton a club for next season that
would reflect credit on the city and the
game In general.
Mr. Cahill had In part perfected his
plans for such a club when he was
stricken with the Illness that terminated
fatally on Christmas morning. The of
ficers of the association were at once
confronted with the necessity of secur
ing a worthy successor for Mr. Cahill
and W. L. Betts wrote to Manager-John
Hanlon, of the Hazleton club, tendering
the position to him if he cared to accept
it. Mr. Hanlon, a short time ago, was
elected president, secretary and treas
urer of the State league and It Is not
known that he would care to resign
that position to accept the manage
ment of the Scranton club. His reply
lias not yet been received.
lie Is Partial to Scranton.
Mr. Hanlon, however, is an admirer
of Scranton, and there, was a well
founded belief that he would have been
willing to accept the management of
this club lust season at the time the
change into the Eastern league was
made had the base ball sea been
smoother here Just at that time. Mr.
Hanlon Is a quiet, conservative gentle
man who has the respect of everyone
connected with the game. If Scranton
secures him its club will have an ef
Timothy Hurst, the National league
umpire, Is also mentioned as an avail
able person for manager. There is no
better posted man on the national game
in America nor one- who has a more
comprehensive knowledge of the ability
of players. He has relatives in this city
whom he frequently visits, and he has
come to regard Scranton as in a cer
tain sense his home. There are several
other persons also In mind by the of
ficers of the club and a new manager
will In all probability be selected with
in a week.
Troubles of New York Club.
Manager Davis of the New York club,
Is fearful that lie will have much diffi
culty in securing the signature of Pitch
ers Rusle and Meekln to contracts for
next season.- RusJe wants $5,000 and
Meekln about the same. The club will
not pay them anything approaching
that sum in size. Meekln has demand
ed $600 for extra games pitched at the
close of the season when 'he was alter
nating 4n the box with Rusle every oth
er day. The New York club officials
are only willing to pay 'him $200 for
these extra games, which gives Meekln
an additional cause for complaint.
Manager Davis has decided to re'
main on third base and captain his
club from that corner of the diamond.
He is looking atiuut for a first class
second baseman ' to 'take ex-Captain
Ward's place. He would like to secure
Bid" McPhee, 6f Cincinnati, but the
management of that club Is not at all
anxious to dispense with the services
of the king of second basemen.
Sports In General.
It is barely possible that In the ad
vent of a team of English athletes In
this country next year the Britons may
be reckoning without their host in
figuring out their crack sprinter Bradley
as the winner of the 100 yard run. They
seem to be overlooking "Ernie" RamS'
dell, of the University of Pennsylvania,
who did even time at the Intercollegi
ate games last spring.
"Parson" Davles has sent two chal
lenges to London. He offers to ' back
Tommy Kyan for $2,500 against any 142
pound man In England, give or take
two pounds, the contest to take place
before the club In England or America
offering 'the largest purse, the winner
to take the purse and title of cham
pion welter weight of the world, the
contest to take place within twelve
weeks after the signing of articles.
He also agrees to put up $2,500 for Joe
Choynskl against any heavy weight in
England, Peter Jackson or Frank

The Union College and Columbia Ath
letic Club foot ball teams played a tie
game at Washington, D. C, Christmas
Day, the halves being of twenty-five
minutes duration. Union made the
first goal lni seven minutes, the ball re
maining near the middle of the field
during the remainder of the half. Co
lumbia tied the score in the first ten
minutes of 'the second half, and al
though her quarter back, Phil King,
made two great runs, which were the
most brllHartt features of the game,
Union's defense was impregnable. The
play "was exceedingly rough through
out and marked by frequent "slugging,"
but on account of the soft ground there
were no serious casualties. Frank But
tenworth was referee.
An effort is Ibeing made to get Tommy
Ryan and Jack Dempsey to fight to a
finish with skin tight gloves within a
hundred miles of this city. The parties
who are trying to make the match say
they can get 1,000 Bportlng men who are
willing to give up from $10 to $15 apiece
to see the baittle.
A large crowd of people were at the
Los Angeles, Cal., track Tuesday and
sawlfche crack pacers and trotteirs of the
country go against their own records.
No records were broken, however, as
the track was tat least three seconds
slow. Directly, the champion two-year-
old, went against his record of 2.07,
but could only go in 2.09. Robert J. beat
Patchen in the pacing race, winning
the first, third and fourth heats in 2.08
2.07 and 2.08. Piatohen won the second
heat in 2.13. Emil Ulbreoht, a local bi
cycler, raced agulnst Flying Jib and
beat the pacer In 2.04. Jib's time was
IN LOCAL THEATERS.

comes back to the Academy of Music
tonight In his new play, "The Star

tails regarding the merits of this suc
cessful fun maker. His hearty recep

This season he appeared In all the lead
ing cities of the country In his success

Office, Theator Lobby,
He Speaks His Mind Concerning the
" Action o! Councils.
THINKS HE HAS BEEN IGNORED
Ills Communications Regarding the Con
dition of the J udgtncnt and Incidental
Fund Treated with Indifference.
Money Uas Been Transferred,
'A pretty Illustration of the procras
tination of councils is revealed In the
recent creation of an ordinance pro
viding for the heating of the municipal
building by steam and providing for an
appropriation which cannot be se
cured. In terms more suggestive than
mild City Controller Widmayer has
written a letter upon the matter, and
the indications are that councils have
been remiss and that the controller has
his back up.
A section of the ordinance providing
for ' heating the building with Bteam
and advertising for that commodity
reads in part, "There is hereby ap
propriated the sum of $2,000, which sum
Is hereby transferred for such purpose
from appropriation for approaches to
the Swetland street bridge."
Took V'ndue Liberty.
That councils had taken an undue
liberty In transferring a fund without
being certain of the existence of such a
fund was susplcloned by City Clerk
Lavelle, who sent to the controller a
copy of the ordinance and a letter ask
ing if the controller would certify a
contract under the appropriation pro
vided In the section quoted above. This
letter brought the following tart and
concise reply from Mr. Widmayer:
Scranton, Pa., Dec. 27, 1891,
Martin T. Lavelle. City Clerk:
jjear oir l wouiu suomit to
you the following: Owing to the Indif
ference of councils paid to my several
communications regarding the condition
of the Judgment and incidental fund and
the urgent and emphatic demands being
made for the payment of vlewerB' costs
as directed by court, I caused the transfer
of this amount in question to be made1 to
the credit of above said fund.
Of my authority to act I refer you to the
appropriation ordinance, file of common
council, No. 67, 1M, lines 222 to 204. Ke
spectfully yours, Fred J. Widmayer,
Facts Will Do Told.
Now the city clerk and controller feel
that as far as their departments are
concerned, councils will be Informed of
a few pertinent facts, and those who
know of the controller's peppery let
ter are wondering what councils are
going to do about It.
