BASE BALL RULES.

By Ilxclushe Wire frcin The Associated rreav
Detroit, March C. The American
league magnates, at their last session
this i-.fteriioou, adopted the changes in
the playing mles recommended by the
TSuiVitlo conference of last month, with
the iNception of the foul strike rule,
which will be played in the American
leriyuc the sumo at'. It was last year.
The most important of these recoin
meudaiioub is thu one providing that
the timpuc shall call a ball on the
pitcher each time he delays the game
by failing to deliver tho ball to the
batsman, when he has been In posi
tion for more than twenty seconds.
This icccnimeudatlons says, In the
ia:-o of the first batsman in each in
ning, the pitcher may occupy not more
.hun one minute In delivering not to
exceed live balls to one of the base
men lor the purpose of warming up.
The advisability of removing the
headquarters of the league from Chi
lago to New York was brought up,
and, Utci some debate, a resolution
was adopted, leaving the matter to the

Counterfeiter, Is Sent to tho West

Half Years A True Bill.
In United StnleB circuit court yes
terday Judge Archbald granted a com
pulsory nott-sult In tho trespass case ot
William Hoblnson ngalnst tho Dela
ware and Hudson Canal company.
The motion for a non-suit was mado
by Attorney D. II. Carr, of Albany,
general counsel for tho defendant com
pany, when the plaintiff's side had
The suit was for JIO.OOO for personal
Injuries. The plaintiff was a passenger
on n Delaware and .Hudson train going
from Scranton to Cnrbondnle. Instead
of getting off at the station In Carbon
dale, he remained aboard the train un
til It was pulled up Into the yard, and
then took a cut towards his home on
Hclmont street through the yard, by a
pathway 'extending between the com
pany's shops. In passing; by the repair
shop he stepped suddenly aside to es
cape a gust of steam, and one of his
feet broke through the covering of a
vat for boiling potash. His leg was
badly burned, resulting In permanent
Mr. Carr argued that the plaintiff
was guilty of contributory negligence;
Unit the path he followed was not a
"permission way," and that there was
no evidence of any negligence on the
part of the company. It was contended
by Mr. Carr, that the company's obli
gation to the plaintiff as a- carrier
ceased at tho station; that he rode
tip In to tho yard, only through tho
suftrunce of the train hands, and that
the vat, by no manner of reasoning
could bo held to be located on the sta
MIS. BURNS' .11KPLY.
I. H. Kuril, in reply, argued that
the company practically maintained a
sub-station at the upper end of the
yard, for its patrons who wanted to go
to the Delmont street locality, and per
mitted them to ride to this point and
then cross through the yard along a
well defined pathway, thereby making
the route from the station to Ilelmont
street, a "permission way," which In
the eyes of the law, the company Is
obliged to safeguard.
Judge Archbald granted the non-suit
on the grounds that the place of acci
dent was not on the premises of tho
station to which the company contract
ed to carry the plaintiff, and this being
so, the company was not guilty of any
Yesterday afternoon Judge Archbald
called the cases of P. M. Thornton
against the Security Insurance com
pany of New Haven. Conn., and the
same plaintiff against the National
Assurance company of Ireland, which
by agreement are being tried together.
The plaintiff is a young Wilkes
Ij.'irre attorney residing in Kingston.
His home was damaged by lire last
April. He carried $0,000 Insurance in
the defendant companies, on the house
and furnishings. He claimed a loss
equal to the full vnlue of the policies.
The company wanted to allow only
about one-fourth of this. He refused
to accept nn'd brought suit.
Ills attorneys are ex-Judge K. N.
Wlllanl and John McOahren. The at
torneys for the company are M. J. Mar
tin and John T, I.enahan.
Another counterfeiter was yesterday
sent to the Western penitentiary by
Judge Archbald. He is William Header,
a tailor and farmer, T,0 years of ao,
from Onshore, Sullivan county. His
term is two years and six months.
January V, last, Header bought some
meat from Huteher William Kraus and
paid for It with seventeen live-cent
pieces. The butcher discovered they
were spurious, and Informed the local
police authorities. Secret Service Agent
M. V. Griffin, of Philadelphia, was put
on the case, and in the attic of Header's
house, In which he maintained a tailor
shop, found a lot of lead nickels, a
couple ot moulds, borax, gas stove and
Attorney C. K. Daniels, who was as
signed to defend Header, entered a
plea of Insanity for his client, and
called two witnesses to support the.
plea. Constable Frank Buck and Con
tractor Charles T. Lawrence, of On
shore, who were witnesses for tho
prosecution, admitted, when recalled
by tho defense, that they had heard of
the defendant having been In the Dan
ville asylum for a period of about a
mouth, some three years ago, tho court
having committed him, when 11 jury
called to try him for assaulting the
sheriff, adjudged him Insane,
Mr, Buck also told that Header was

of this rotated that he was sometimes

It Is not because Pyramid Pile Cure
Is so expensive that many people de
cline to give it 11 trial, but because they
find It too great a tax on their credulity
to believe that the published letters
bearing testimony to the merit of tills
remedy are genuine and bona lido; es

suffering Incident to piles Is it Incredi
ble that anyone who has been nfll'ited
twenty-five and thirty years with the
worst forms of protruding and bleeding
piles should be cured by the application
of a simple remedy, when their physi
cian has assured them that the only
relief Is In a surgical operation. This
Is rightfully viewed with dread by all
those nnilcted, as It means at the least
a great shork to tho nervous system,
with more than a possibility of utter

There was some dlllloulty In secur

before tho twentieth member, A. L.

the bond ordinance was called up on

go Into committee of the whole for the
purpose of amendment. Mr. Keller
announced that he would vote against
the ordinance if any amendments
were adopted, and as the measure

PAINE FAVORRD THEM.
Mr. Paine argued in favor of going
into committee of the whole and adopt

of the imperative necessity of making
the improvements which they provide
for. Mr. Keller said that if the ordi
nance was amended it would never pass
the other branch of council.

culled upon and announced that the
amendments presented met with the
approval of the recorder and that there
had been a slight misunderstanding as
to the sending in or a letter announcing
his (the recorder's) approval of them.

Mr. Gurrell, of the Fourteenth ward,
"that I for one won't agree to the ad

dorsed the hitter's remarks. He said
that the AVest Scranton councllmen will

CALLED IT UNFAIR.
President Calpln made nn address, in
which he declared that the position
taken by tho AVest Scranton council
men was unfair and unjust. The vla
duot question, he said, has not been
settled yet. There has been no agree
ment as to the kind of a viaduct or a
place to put it, and when some such
agreement Is reached It may bo months
away, he said. In the meantime the
citizens In all parts of the city arc In

he said, but the erection of the bridges
A motion made to defer action until
the next meeting was lost, and the
'motion to go Into committee of the
whole was put. While tho vote was
being taken, Messrs. Coleman aud
Nagell, who had favored the amend
ments, slipped out of tho door, nnd the
next minute tho meeting was over.
Prior to the breuklng of the quorum,
a great deal of routine business was
transacted. A communication was re
ceived from Colonel F. J. Fltzslmmons
requesting the return of tho cetillled
check for $5,000 which was deposited as
a guarantee of good faith when certain
gentlemen whom ho represented mado
their offer of J100.000 for the street rnll
way irancmses. i nis oner was inter
refused, and council accordingly agreed
to the return of the certified check.
A resolution from the select council,
providing for the exoneration of one
half of the sewer assessment of Patrick

claims exoneration from one-half of tho
assessment because I he sower running

KELLER MADE OU.IECTION.
Mr, Keller raised the objection that
the passage of thin resolution would be
establishing a bad precedent, as there
are probably hundreds of similar cases
In various parts of tho ally, Mr. thit

van's agreeing to pay one-half of tho
assessment is a big concession, because
he cannot bo compelled by law to pay
any of It, The resolution was finally
referred for consideration to tho city
solicitor and superintendent of tho
bureau of engineering,

What Seems to Be Chief Use of the
Funny Turkish Navy.
from thu London Tclegnpli.
The Turkish navy In 1.S78 retired be
hind the bridges up the Ooldon Horn,
and there remained rotting until 1SH7,
the only purpose the vessels served be
ing to act as mussel and oyster beds,
from which the dock yard hands occa
sionally got u good feed. Tho ships
were dismantled, In many cases parts
of their engines were used for merchant
vessels, and it Is even said the pro
pellers were taken to the palace to pre
vent anybody making use of them.
When tho Greek war broke out, and
dally rumors came of the OreeU fleet
doing Immense damage to Turkish sen
coast places, a feeling arose that the
Turkish navy must bo up and doing,
aud tho sultan also saw that he must
make a move. So orders were given
for the fleet to get under way, and all
tho mussels were scraped off, the boil
ers patched with cement, and the lleot
started. Not one of them was sea
worthy, but they made a lino show, and
the populace was satisfied, Thplr en
gines, however, wero useless, and their
decks so rotten that in some cases they
could not carry tlut weight of the guns.
Kvpii when warping1 themselves out
they had to borrow ouch other's cables,
as they wero only provided with one
each. When they got Into the Mar
mora they did not know what to do,
but luckily captured a small coasting
stenmer, which piloted them to tho
Dardanelles. There several were leak
ing so badly that they had to bo
benched, while others went ashore of
their own uccord, and there thoy aro to
Again the sultan thought something
should bo done, so he entered Into a
contract with an Italian Una to repair
and "le-overythlng" eight of the war
ships at a cost of JCl.MO.OOO, Hut the
Italians wanted something to begin
with, and after two years 130,000 has
been forthcoming, Now tho sultan
thinks that his plans will bo unre
muneratlve, and he wants to break tho
contract, supporting his wish with all
kinds of excuses. The 'rihudow's''
latest proposal Is that the Italian linn
