6 THE SUN, BALTIMORE, SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 27, 1897. WORLD OF SPORT. Champion Orioles to Bid Good-Bye to Macon and Go on Exhibition Trip. REGULARS ROUT TANIGAJiS. Dr. Pond Creates a Sensation as a Model Short Stop. Takes a Ited-Hot One from the Bat and Accepts Several Chances Without ErrorGood Condition of the Men 2ot Much Tractice Gained by lteason of the Weather. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. Macon, Ga.. March 20. When The Sex 13 beiti read at Baltimore breakfast tables tomorrow the three-time champions, or most of them, will have finished their work in Macon for the season of li-07 and will be on tbeir way to Columbus. Ga., where the first exhibition name cf the season Is to be played in the afternoon. As all the players wi:i not be Deeded in Columbus, Manager Hanlon will leave Captain Robinson, McMahon, Hoffer. Horton and O'Brien here until lues- day, when they will join the remaiuder of the team in Atlanta. The weather bs not been nearly so good for training here this year as usual. It was first warm.then wet,then windy and cold. In addition to this the club has been here a shorter time than usual The consequence is that the Orioles have had less enrly practice than for several years, especially tUo pitchers, the other men, too, have loft practice so far as throwing is concerned. Oo the other nana. the team never reported in better physical condition than this year. Fewer men wero over weight, and such as were are lighter than usual, hence there has never before been a practice trip when so many men could go around the mile track with as much ease. Pbssieally, the team is in first-class EhaDe. Mr. Hanlon was enthusiastic over Kelley's condition when he arrived this morning. He1 said the great fielder had never been in such perfect trim, and that Keeler and Stenzel could not be in better condition even in miu season. McGraw's form also pleases Mr. Hanlon. and Clarke is Justrieht. Captain Kobinson has been working assiduously, but he has still a few more pounds to takeoff. McMahon and Heitz will also improve by losing a few pounds. The batting is unusually good, considering the small amount of practice. The only department of the grame lii which the team is behind hand Is the pitching and throwing. The younger pitchers. Pond. Coogan and Hortou, have done good work and make a irood showing-, but McMaDoiw Hemming and Holler have not yet besrun tMet their arms out. Mr. Hanlon thinks, howtver. that by the time the season begins, about a month nence. all the pitchers will have their arms limberei up and be In twirling form. The champions and the Yanigans played their farewell game in M:tcon this atternoon for the benefit of the Free Kindergarten. The game was fairly interesting up to the end of the firth iuninir. while Horton and Cuofrau were the opposing pitchers. Had Cooiran been supported by the Yanigans as we'd as Horton was by the regulars the score would have been very close. The last three innings McMahon pitched for the Yanigans and Hemming for the champions. McMahon just "lobbed" the ball up, being afraid to strain his arm, and the champions hammered the ball all over the field, making 21 runs and 19 hits for total of 41 base. Hemming pitched as easily, but his support was fine, and the Yanigans were too cariKss to try to bat much. The Yanigan team of this year is not as good a club as the Yanisrans of 1S30, under the leadership of James Donnelly. The feature or the came today was Dr. Pond's play at short. He handled some red-hot oue9 In Jennings style, accepting eight chances, some of them difficult, without the eernb ance f a tumble. He took a red-hot liner rrooi O'Brien's bat iu the second inning that ruised a cheer from the players themselves. O'Brien collided with the Doctor at t-econd and accidentally spiking him sliirhtiy and drawinir blood. It was thought at first that Pond's weak leg was seriously hurt, but he kept on playing and he fays his leg is all right. McMahon played excellently at first base until he went in to pitch. O'Brien made some pretty catches. Hoder played well at short today and testerday his errors in both games beinn bad throws. He did not want to take chances with his arm in the chilly wind. Stenzel and Kelley made pretty catches today, and when Jennings sets in that batting order it will be a heart-breaking series of sluggers for opposing pitchers to face. The wny they hammered the ball today was inspiring. I ! I M I i ss. a an.o AiE Yav ' 1 1 .. i MM! Champ IGASS.: ARB O A E MctJraw, 3.1 Keeler, r. . I JLellev.l... lovIe.l... bieuzel, cf .

Nicholas P. Bond, of Baltimore, general counsel of the company, was before the Talbot county commissioners asking that the mortgage be exempt from taxation. His pleas were that the mortgage is held by non-rcsidenta, and hence not taxable in Maryland, and that it is merely held as collateral to secure the bondholders of the company, and therefore non-taxable.

The Concussion Was Felt for Miles in Every Direction. Ten Were Injured by Elying Pieces of Glass or by the Tremendous Shock At the Same Works in 1884, tamot Dupont, Who Was Then President of the Company, Was Killed. Philadelphia, .March 26. Three men were blown to fragments and ten other persons were injured by an explosion of nitro-glycerlne af the Reapuno Chemical Works, near this city, today. The dead are: James Hamilton, aged thirty years. Charles Wright, aged twenty-five years. J. T. Stiles, aged twenty-eight years. The following were injured: John Langford. William Gardiner. William Tussey. John Jefferson. Peter Fellman. John Williams. Joseph Donnelly. Charles Madeira. Lizzie McGinnls. Emma Bates. The injuries were sustained mainly irom tne concussion or from broken glass, They are not severe. The works are on the New Jersey side of the Delaware river, a mile and a half from GIbbstown. The dead men lived in Paulsboro, and the Injured make their homes in GIbbstown. All were employed In the wof ks, the women in the casing nouse.. The explosion occurred at 12.24 P. M., in eitner tne weighing house or the sena rating house, both of which were blown to splinters. The workmen were then re turning from dinner. Most of them had not yet reached their posts, or the loss of life would have been greater. The concussion was felt for miles In every direction, and a plasterer at work on a scaffold three-quarters of a mile away was blown off. The windows in nearly every house on the company's grounas were broken. After the excitement had to some extent subsided a corps of men was put to work among the ruins of the two buildings, to ascertain the extent of the disaster. After much search the mutilated remains of the three victims were gathered into two buckets. The fact that Wright had been killed was learned from a ring on one of his fingers. A pair of broad shoulders( from which the head as well as the lower part of the body had been torn. were the means of identifying Stiles as one or the dead. Physicians from GIbbstown and its vi clnity looked after the injured, most of whom were cut on the head and face by nying glass. The explosion was of such terrific force that besides destroying the two houses, it tore a hole fully eighty feet long and twenty-five feet wide in the ground upon wnicn tney naa stood. Stiles was in the separating house and Hamilton in the weighing house when the explosion occurred. Wright's duties kept him going from one to the other of the buildings, and he may have been in either. The cause of the explosion is believed to have been excessively high temperature in one of the houses, quantities of the explosives being in both at times. An inquest in the case will be held tomorrow. The company is engaged in the manufacture of dynamite, which necessitates the handling of nitro-glycerlne, wood pulp and nitrate of soda. Its plant covers about 600 acres, and in consequence of the character of the work carried on is almost Isolated from any habitation. The works comprise about seventy small frame and iron buildings, most of them one-story in height. Each Is used for a distinct department of the works. The president of the company Is J. A. Haskell, of New York. March 24, 1884, an explosion occurred, by which nearly the entire plant was destroyed, and six men were killed. It was caused by the generation of excessive heat by nitric acid. The killed were Lamot Dupont, president of the company; Walter N. Hill, superintendent; Edward Nor-cross, compounder of nitric acid; A. C. Ackerman, of St. Louis, a traveling representative of the company, and two workmen. Mr. Dupont was of the third generation of a family well known since the beginning of the present century for the manufacture of explosives. He was the second of that family to meet death at the works, the first being Irene Dupont, who was killed twenty-five years ago. A BELT FULL OF DIAMONDS. Strange Story of Robbery Told by a Man Whose Mind Has .Been a Ulank for Months. Olean, N. Y., March 26. Chief of Police Hart says he Is convinced of the truth of the statement made by the man who went to sleep March 11, saying he was Charles Brown, and awoke forty-eight hours later, saying he was David J. Telfair, a multi-millionaire. Telfair's first question on awakening was: "Where Is my belt?" and upon being told that he had none he exclaimed: "Then I have been robbed of my diamonds." He has lived with Chief nart ever since, and that official has repeatedly questioned and cross-questioned the man, who seems unable to recall anything that has happened since last August, when he went to Jackson Park, Chicago, to hear a band concert. He says he may have been sandbagged and robbed. He dimly remembers being thrown Into a carriage and from that time all was a blank until he awoke in the Olean Hospital. Telfair states that he had in his belt a hundred and three diamonds, the product of his operations In the Transvaal in a company known as the Seven Associates. Chief Hart has Investigated part of his guest's story and found it true. He believes it all. He has authorized a reward of $25,000 for the recovery of the one hundred and three missing diamonds, or proportionately for any of them. A GIRL DIES FROM FRIGHT.

Such is the opinion of the attending physician and the coroner's jury so found after listening to his testimony and that of the family. Miss Paulson was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Paulson. Friday evening of last week she and a younger sister, Thora, were alone in their home with their mother, when the two girls went to their room to retire.

An instant later a scream was heard and Elizabeth rushed out calling for help. Mrs. Paulson went to her assistance, but it was some time before the girl could speak plainly enough for her mother to understand the cause of her sudden terror. At length she was able to say that there was a strange man in her room. By this time other members of the family had arrived and they joined in making an Investigation. It was found that a woman's cloak and hat hung on the wall In a position where the light from a neighboring gas lamp cast a strange shadow and this was what Miss Paulson had mistaken for a man. All efforts to calm the girl proved futile Symptoms of epilepsy developed and the periods of unconsciousness grew more protracted daily until she died. NORTH CAROLINA.

Hotfinan, 936 Ridgely street, M. E. Casey, 2029 Bank street. H. L, Thomas, 2;3o Boston street. There were four other charges dismissed by the justice because the accusers failed to appear. In each case It was stated by the witnesses that Dorman had represented himself as the conductorof a collection agency and said he wished to take charge of collecting their bad debts; that for $1 he wrould furnish each customer monthly for one year with a book containing a list of all persons who were notorious for failure to pay their debts.

The body of a colored man which was found floating In the harbor Thursday off the Baker-AVhlteley Coal Company's pier. Canton, by Charles AA'ilson, was yesterday Identified at the morgue as that of James Pulley, for whom the police have been looking since February 9 as the murderer of Sarah Fields, colored. Identification was made by relatives and others who were intimately acquainted with Pulley. Florence Pulley, 1217 Roblnson'a Court, who said that she was the widow of Pulley and who had not lived with him for three years, was positive that it was his body. A pipe found In the clothing was Identified as Pulley's by Henry Young, husband of the sister of Sarah Fields. Coroner Riley was fsatlsflod from the investigation that there was no mistake, and he gave a certificate of death from suicide. The coroner will hold the body for fiTe days to give the relatives a chance to claim it for burial, but it Is likely that the Interment will be made at the expensa of the city. The coroner thinks that the body had been in the water over fout weeks, and the theory Is that Pulley drowned himself a short time after he had murdered Sarah Fields. He and the woman had lived together at 1422 May Street court. They had had some trouble because Pulley failed to make proper use of money which his companion had given him. They separated for a few days, and on the night of February 8 Pulley went to the home of th Fields woman and the quarrel was apparently amicably settled. Pulley remained all night, leaving early tho next morning. About 7 A. M. Francos Young, the sister of Fields, went to Sarah Fields' room and found her dead in bed, the loft side of her head being crushed In and the face badly cut and bruised. A bloody hatchet was on the floor.
