BASE BALL GOSSIP. 'SAYINGS AND DOINGS OF PLAYERS AND MAGNATES. *firt Rumor Tlitte 1'rnfth >Voiil«l JPurnhnifl CI<iv«liiml I'run^lUttu In Doixloil— CliMncfM C;ilinot Ho Mailo 111 u Ui»y— Tnrry nn Old Timor Xow. HERE is no Ini- niodhUc prospect ot I n d ianapolis hiv- ingachiu in the big Iciipim with . 11 lay- en; composed oE the present Cleveland Icniii. Tlift story which is going the rounds to tho effect that Pro si den: Brush would pnr- .eh.iso the Cleveland iran'/uise. switch .tho Club to Indianapolis, and turn the present Hoosicr tuitni over to^iomc .other bast--ball - lovlnjj community mtmts with a voh?raeut denial by thcit .gentleman himself. Mr. Brush was asked regarding t!io report. "There is absolutely nothing in It," w.'iid l;e. "The story originated Jn tho fall of 18(11. when Mr. Uobison, president of the Cleveland club, was qtiotp.it as «aying that he was anxious (o soft the Cleveland club. Since then the- story tins broken out at measured intervals, but never has there boen any reason for beliovlnp that a trans- tor of any kind would be made. I jiovcr have broached [he subject to llr. Jvobiaon, uor lias he ever offered the club for sale to inc. No doubt Mr. Robl- acra would sell if he could secure his price, but his price, like that of every other club, is co hii?h that persons who are not tliorouslily up in base ball would refuse to consider a proposition of it in which the Cleveland value figured. "It is not such an easy matter to have a club transferred from one city to another as people generally imagine," continued Mr. Brush. "When the ton-year agreement, was made in 1S91 ,its provisions were such that every man that went into It received lull protection in every way. For instance, if President Robison sold tho Cleveland club he would have to secure the consent of the other presidents ito the sale. Then if the purchasing -party desired to transfer tho team to .-any other city lie a,~c>in would have to Secure the consent of the other presidents. The others naturally would make up their minds whether the city ho which tho club would be transferred ;ive better returns than Cleve- If they thought it would and » *»y.e their con-rent the trade would go. '£/$, "however, one man preferred the original city to the one to which the team v/as to be moved and voted asrainst the change, tho deal would be off and i.he team would have to remain where it is. Another feature about transferring clubs i:; that although the original owners may sell cut and get tut" of base ball they are liable until the terraination of the ten-year agreement for any shortcomings on the part of the new owners. And, by the way, these frequent demands -for the expulsion ot this president or that president Is foolishness. The agreement of 1S91 Js to the effect that no club or club president can be expelled for anything but failure to keep his obligations with Win players and with the league. Of course there is punishment for the magnates in the way of lines, but expulsion can come only for the offenses that I mentioned before." from Ca»P to HOT. Conrad C. Lucid, who was with the Philadelphia club of the National league and American association for -i greater part of this season, v/as born onVeb. 24. 18G9, at Dublin, Ireland, and is a printer by trade. It v/as while working at his trade as a compositor on the Boston Herald that -he gained somo renown as a pitcher on local amateur teams. Big first professional engagement was with the Denver club ot the Western league in 18S9 as a catcher but did not make a hit, so he TobfMiu'a Triumph. Oliver Tebe.iu, manager and captain of the Clevlund team, triumphed over the entire league, Judge Noble, before Tvhom the demurrer to Teboau's petition lor a perpetual restraining order wa.a heard preventing the league from collecting the !lno of ?200 imposed on him for alleged improper conduct In the Cleveland-Chicago game, at Cleveland, and the Clevcland-Loulsvllio game at Louisville, on pnin of expulsion [roni the league, overruled the demurrer and granted tho injunction. The decision 'wrought out a point that had been entirely overlooked by the at- tonic.vs of both .sides, and thet was that no fine had boen imposed. Tho statement occasioned considerable surprise, br.t it developed that it was true. On .Inly 4 Tebsau received a letter signed N. K. Young, secretary of the league. Tills note informed him that the directors, at a special meeting, had requested him to impose a fine of $-00 on Tebeati and to restrain him from participating in any game until the fine was paid. Teboau obtained a temporary injunction against the league and the Cleveland team restraining tho collection of tho line and compelling them to permit liiai to play. CU-vrlaml's Dmrllno. J. Eurlo Wagner believes that the decline of public interest in Cleveland is solely 'due to the conduct upon the field of Captain Tobeau and his players.

KIM ball, alias Ilowar Cavello, fled frorr Chicago one dar night in Februao a year ago an reached Mexico li safely. From acros the border he wrot Police Inspecto Stuart twitting let tore about his es jape and picturing tho delights of win Lor life in the southern ropnbllc. From .Mexico he went to France, still koepint, up his fun with the inspector by mail Meantime Joseph A. Neeley, who .had aided him to escape by scheduling imaginary .property as a bondsman wus serving a two years' sentence in Joliet. Three weeks ago Cavelle landed in New York and was soon known to the police. A message was sent hero tell' ing of his return to this country, whicl' was turned over to the postal authorities. Inspector Christian went cast to arrest him, anil he was soon brought to Chicago to answer the charge of being a fugitive from justice. Cavello will be remembered as a man of many and varied matrimonial ventures. His plnn was to advertise for i wife, his representation being that he was a wealthy Louisiana planter. With the grace of good looks and easy manners he "worked" bis victims on short acquaintance. He was found to have bean engage:! to halt' a dozen widows and old maids in different parts of the country, from whom he had secured various sums of money on one pretext or another. One woman in particular, Mrs. Ida L. Smith of Toledo, Ohio, had become infatuated with him. She gave an engagement party at her home and sold out a prosperous millinery business to give Cavelle several hundred dollars to tide him over while he was waiting to secure a remittance, as ho said. She went to Cincinnati with him, and he deserted her- there. She instigated his arrest for fraudulent use o! 'he maile. CUM :MAN FAILED TO STIUK. FRED TERRY, (One of the few old-time pitchers still in tho arena.) disgusted with the language of Tebeau, Burkett and O'Connor, who carried their blackguardism so far t.hat the patrons of the grand-stand refused to attend the game. The patrons dropped off year by year, until to-day Cleveland, despite the'fact that she has a strong club. Is one of the poorest paying base ball cities in tho League. Ys It any wonder, then, that Mr. Roblaou \vunts coaching stopped?" Diamond DtiHt. Newark has signed Pitcher Willis, late of Syracuse, and borrowed Pitcher Gettig from New York, and Garvln from Philadelphia. Clark has played in more games for Louisville than any one man, and has become one of the strongest batsmen the Colonels have. Cleveland papers are making all sorts of concessions this year. Tho latest is that Cleveland is a poor town for base hall. What next?—Ex. The Buffalo team contains seven left- handed -batsmen. They are terrors to right-handed pitchers, but a southpaw keeps them guessing. Ex-Captain Glpason, of the Giants, is a light-hearted player since throwing up tho captaincy. The Kid is playing better ball, too. Tom Tucker has played in every game this season, and has struck out fewer times than any other overy-day player on the Boston team. Every time Jimmie Ryan strikes a bad run of luck at the bat he talks about retiring from tho diamond. Uncle never takes 'him seriously. Plttsburg has the honor of talcing the first series from Cleveland. This is the first series that tho ^Cleveland club has lost in two seasons. Pitcher Cuppy has made only two wild pitches and has hit only live men in thirty-six games. In no game has he given more than four bases on balla. Cincinnati has achieved the rare feat HOWARD CAVELLE. Mrs. Smith went to Chicago to testify against Kimball. Attorney John F. Barrow represented him and asked for a continuance over night to make his defense. It was granted, and bond in the sum of ?2,000 was tendered by Barrow and Joseph A, Neeley. That niglit Kimball slipped out of town. Necley's property was looked up and found to exist.only in imagination. He was arrested for perjury, tried and sentenced. Cavclle's career began in Canada, where he robbed a post-office which was under his stepfather's charge. Later he . . Chicago. He held several positions there as hotel clerk. When first arrested Kimball had a complete collection of coins of every government in the world, corresponding to American silver dollar. Coin collectors have been anxious to secure possession of the collection, and the government filed a suit against it on the bond but no service could he had and the collection remained undisturbed. Kimball having been arrested, It is now a question, whether it can be attached or will revert to him as the owner... Wealthy Tntil-Fruitl Malcor Suod tor Jlreiich of L'roinlHfl. Among the most successful enter- tniners on the eastern vaudeville stage IB Miss Myrtle Thurlow, who though but 20 years of age lias been somewhat of a public favorite for some five or si:c years. .Tust now she is suing Thomas Aclamo, .'I'; 1 ., the chewing gum millionaire, for 5100.000 damages, charging him with having broken his promise to marry he: 1 . The fact that Mr. Adams already lias n wife does not seem to have deterred Miss Thurlow from instituting legal proceedings. The plaintiff, who is u i.:ny person, with "air hair, regular fcaturcr. nnd' joft bine tyes, is reserved of manner and gentle of tone until she gets to discussing what she calls the pcrlidy of the wealthy gum-maker. The latter asserts that the suit Is simply an attempt at blackmail. This Miss Thurlow and her mother indignantly deny. The young woman's eyes snap when she speaks of this charge. "Blackmail!" she exclaimed, when speaking about It to a reporter. "Only RIVERSIDE CYCLING CLUBHOUSE: No. 527 BROADWAY. A Rest for Weary Riders. OFFICERS: iDEST. Jos. KHKIB. vjcK-PnxsiDKST, K. W.

I have already rejected two of- 'ers of compromise," Miss Thunow says she was engaged by a theatrical manager to do an illusion act advertising Mr. Adams' brand of gum in a Brooklyn store window. Some time later she- made the acquaintance of defendant, who is near- y 50 years of age, and he soon began to make love to her. The prospects of sush a good match did not seem to be disagreeable to the vaudeville performer, notwithstanding the disparity in ;e. Adams, she says, visited her often and sent her a great many letters full of endearing phrases. He became nsanely jealous of her and wanted her to abandon the stage. She exhibits expensive presents which Adams gave icr, one being a handsome engagement •ing. At length sl)e discovered he was ilready married and had a family. He •jssurcd her, she says, that he would :oon obtain a divorce. This he appears ,o have failed to do, and the result is lie suit for breach of promise. Cockburn * Brothers' Office.

Twenty members of a Turin theatrical company have sued the critic of a daily paper, La Patrla, on account of his criticism of a performance of a drama by.Alfieri, the great Italian dramatist.

His comrade ran to the bank intending to offer assistance, Mr. Hamlin began to scream in an unintelligible way, and finally shouted: "The place is full of alligators! They are tearing me to pieces!"
