Efforts to Organize a Beal Amateur Boat Club. PITTSBDEG SPOBTS DISAPPOINTED. The Dojj Fight at Wheeling Does Not Take Place. i GENERAL SPOETIKG SEWS OF THE DAT To those people interested in the national game there is always something exceedingly interesting in a conversation with one of the baseball pioneers. "Old timers" invariably have lots of entertaining recollec-tionsHo talk about, and they usually take great delight in telling of the "good old times." This certainly is the case with Mr. Charles S. Clampitt of this city. He is now 61 years old, and was playing baseball nearly 40 years ago. He was a member of the historic Olympic Ball Clnb of Philadelphia, and has in his possession a little book containing a list of members of that club and a brief sketch of Its early history. It was organized in 1S33 to play townball, from which Mr. Clampitt states baseball developed. The little history of the club goes on to say : "The Olympic Ball Club was established by the union of two associations of townball players in the year 1S33. One of these associations began playing at Camden, H. J., on Market street, near or upon the ground where the Episcopal church stands, in the spring of 1S3L On the first day there were but four of us and the game was called 'catball,' or what is called in some parts of New England, two old cat." THE OLD-TIME TEAM. "The players, who were then over 25 years old, told some of their younger friends of the pleasure and advantage they found in reluming their boyish sport, and invitdd them to join and make up a number large enough for a game of townball. This was soon done and a party of from 35 to 20 regularly went over to Camden on Saturday afternoons in a horse ferry boat and played the game of townball." Public opinion was strong against such "childish amusement," and this feeling retarded the development of the game considerably. During a conversation last evening Mr. Clampitt said that this public sentiment against the game continued for a long time. He continued: "There were many prominent business men in the club, however, and they stuck together until the public feeling underwent a change. Games were played on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and Degan to attract considerable attention. New York people began to notice them, and, as a result, the New Yorkers improved on our game, organized the Knickerbocker club and played baseball. This was, I think, in 1846. and two or three years later we followed the example of the New York people. Townball was in many respects similar to baseball; hut in the former game if a pitcher hit the runner with the call between the bases the runner was out However, the Olympic I think, was the first organized club, and doubtless its existence prompted the formation of the first baseball club. THE GAME BECAME POPULAR "There were soon many clubs formed and we all played baseball, and the game became more popular than the old game. We played for honor, the only trophy being a ball. In our club we made our own balls. Every six months a committee was appointed for this purpose, and the balls were made of a piece of India mkB. v ri vHtt twine wnrsTprl anil tnf skin. The contests became exciting because. of the intense rivalry there existed between Philadelphia and New York. The Athletics were organized in the former city and the At-lantics in New York, and they had lively times. Al Reach, Sisler and McBride were in the Athletic team, and I remember vividly a game between the two clubs when the fences were all broken down. The Athletics won, and it was, indeed, a great time. "In the early history of these clubs nobody was paid for his services, but the clubs gradually drifted into professionalism, and I'll tell you how that took place. It was soon discovered that tbegreatstrength of ateam rested in the pitcher and catcher. There was such a strong desire to win on the part of each clnb that it became the custom to pay for a good battery. But this couldn't be contmued without charging an admlssian fee, which was done eventually. Then clubs began to PAT POB GOOD MEK In. aU positions from the money realized at the gate. From this the custom developed into bona fide professionalism and has continued ever since. "Of course the rules of those early games were extremely different from the rules of today. I used to be a strong enthusiast in the olden time, hut really the game is so different now in almost all respects that I don't feel at home when watching a game nowadays. 1 took part In a game last season and found that the methods are entirely different. I was a left fielder in my day, and at that time fielders had plenty of work, I assure you. Then the pitcher tried to pnt the ball where the batter could hit it, but now the extreme opposite is the case. Certainly In my young baseball days nobody ever thought that the game would ever develop to such extraordinary dimensions as it has done. Its advancement, in the eyes of those of . us who helped to inaugurate it. has really been wonderful, and goodness knows where it will stop. Onetbing connected with modern baseball I note with pride and that is its honesty. I can remember when players would accept bribes and lose a game with comparative impunity. Now a player cannot dojso without ruining his professional prospects forever. However, I still admire the good old methods which enabled us to make 20 or 30 runs. That kept the crowds shouting and everybody busy." DR. CARTER IN TROUBLE. His Gun Attached and Suit Entered Against Ilira. There was a lively scene at the Avenue Baseball Park yesterday at the close of the Carver-Bandle shooting match. It was caused by three ro:n makingji break for Dr. Carver's gun. The affair created a lot of fun, and resulted in the gun being divided between two of the constables. "Yesterday George M. Allen, of Terre Haute, Ind., entered suit before 'Squire Bright to recover 597 from Dr. Carver, clue on a promissory note. A writ of attachment was issued to Constable Frank Johnson. The attorney of Conrad Berens, the Philadelphia occulist, entered suit before 'Squire Hornbcrger to recover $140 from Carver for online the latter's eyes. A writ was issued to Constables Jimmy Meyers and John Rebold. While the match was in progress the three officers were on the scene waiting for a chance to seize Carver's gun. It came, at last. Just as the match closed Carver took his gun apart and laid it down. Just-as he dl. thecmen rushed for it. Tbey were the constables. Notwithstanding Johnson weighs nearly 300 pounds, be got there firstand attached the barrels of the gun.- Before be cbuld seize anything else Constables Rebold and Meyers attached the stock of the gun and all of the doctor's cartridges. The gun is valued at tX Cincinnati Enquirer. WANTS A SEPARATION. Umpire Barnnm Aska to be Kept Amur From the Players. In the Washington correspondence of the New York Sim is the following: Umpire Bar-sum, in a lengthy communication to President Young, reiterates his views regarding the separation of umpires from playing as much as possible, and bis suggestions are worthy of consideration. Oneptiliit that be brings out strongly is to the effect t;.at after a game, and especially one that has been close and exciting, the umpire should not be compelled to come in contact with tbe players in the clubhouse. Very frequently remarks are made that have a tendency to create ill feeling betweeu players who think tbey have been discriminated against by the umpire, and this could be obviated by the umpire keeping away from the men. He renews bis suggestion that tbe umpire should be furnished with a conveyance of Ills own to and from tbe grounds, and should not be compelled to ride in the coach alloted to one of the teams. His idea is to do away with fraternization 6etween nmpires and players, as it will have a tendency to make the former the impartial Judge of the contest that it is Intended an umpire shall be. DISAPPOINTED SPORTS. The Wheeling Doe Fight Did Net Take Place Lively Scenes. . The big croud of Pittsburg sports who went to Wheeling on Saturday to witness the dog fight between Napoleon Jack and an imported dog owned by J. Pembleton, of tbe Southslde, were sadly disappointed. The battle did not take place, and, as a result, there was a lively time among the patrons of the pit. The Pitts-burgers went to Wheeling expecting to witness a chicken main, a dog fight and a prize fight. Only tbe first named took place. The chicken main turned out to be much smaller than anticipated, as there were only six battles between Wheeling and Phillipsburg birds. Four of tho battles were "won by the Phillipsburg party, and each contest was for 125 a side. The main took place in a rink at Fulton, near Wheeling. It was intended to have the dogfight in the rink when the main finished, but the crowd, made up of Wheeling, Steubenville, East Liverpool and Pittsburg sports, was so rough and demonstrative that the owner of the building refused its use and demanded everybody to leave. A number of free fights ensued and one man received a severe cut m the bead with a bottle. The dog fighters then proceeded to a barn a mile and a half away from Wheeling. The promoters of the fight began to charge S2 per head admission to see the battle. After about 50 persons had been admitted at this rate tbe Wheeling sports broke into the barn in wholesale fashion. It was then deemed unsafe to have the fight take place, and the owners and their dogs disappeared with a bowling mob after them. Ihev returned to Wheeling when a stable was offered tbem to fight in private. Klrly, tho owner of Napoleon Jack, declined the offer, though Pembleton was willing to accept it. After considerable wrangling Pembleton and his dog left for home on the 5 o'clock train. Klrly took his dog to Martin's Ferry, wherelhe spent yesterday. It is likely that the battle will take place this week. The prize fight was lost sight of owing to the trouble concerning the dog fight. A WORTHY MOVEMENT. Efforts Being Made to Organize a Real Amateur Boat Clnb. Efforts are being made to organize a bona fide amateur boat club in this vicinity. Mr. J. J. Sweeny, who is connected with the Duquesne ball club, stated yesterday that several gentlemen interested in aquatics have commenced a movement to accomplish the object named. The great object is to have an amateur club that can, without question, put forth the best local amateur rowers in the national contests. Several patrons of the scull are eager to have John Martin and McCnesney take part in the national amateur regatta, and to do this effectively an amateur boat club of influence is needed. At present it is bard to find a local boat club that can technically be called amateurs. The want of such an organization has been extremely felt for some time. If an organization of the kind named were established such promising scullers as John Martin would probably get a chance to measure sculls with.the champions of other clubs in the country. It is also probable that other good scullers would be developed here, as there are lots of powerful young men in tbe neighborhood who desire to become bona fide amateur scullers. Tbe idea as expressed by Mr. Sweeney is to have all those interested in such an organization meet and form a club independent of and entirely distinct from any other club in the city. The proposed club could be formed on purely amateur principles. A step of this kind would certainly do much toward redeeming the prestige of acquatics here. At present that excellent branch of sport is under a ban, but it is possible to return it to public favor by the method mentioned above. PRESIDENT YOUNG'S VIEWS. He Explains Matters Aboat the Players in Spalding's Team. Washington, March 17. "None of the players who have been making tbe tour of the world under the supervision of Mr. Spalding have been assigned to classes," said President Young, of the League, "and they will be exempt from classification for 15 days after their return to the United States. This rule applies to John Ward as well as bis companions, and tbe reason for it lies in the fact that it was adopted after tbe tourists left this country en route to Australia. I have been authorized by Mr. Day to release Ward to the Washington management upon his signing a contract and the payment to me of the sum promised by Mr. Hewitt to the New York's President. "Should the 512,000 for the consummation of the deal be paid over to me, it will make upward of 50,000 that have passed through my hands in tbe past few years for ball players. Of course this arrangement between Messrs. Day and Hewitt renders it illegal for any further attempts by theBostonians to secure Ward,and that seems to be pretty well understood by Messrs. Billings, Conantand Sodcn. Upon the arrival of Ward in tnis country, he will be met at New York by Mr. Hewitt; who considers that the wisest course for him to pursue is to have a personal consultation with John, and not conduct negotiations at long range through the medium of the mails. More business can be transacted in a 15 minutes' talk than can be accomplished by written communications in as many days. Naturally, everything is in abeyance pending a decision by Ward of this matter, but the indications point very strongly to his donning a Washington uniform for the baseball season of 1SS9." What Sllnson Soys. Regarding tbe challenge of E. N. Guckert, which appeared in this paper the other day, Mr. Stinson sends the following reply: "In reply to the challenge of E. N. Guckert to play me on tbe guitar, banjo and mandolin. I am free to admit that he is far above me as a guitar player. I will, however, play Mr. Guckert on tbe banjo and mandolin, and will meet him any day next week to make a match for 5100 or $300 aside. I have no 51,000 friends. The contest must be decided by qualified musicians mutually agreed upon. C. P. Sttnson." Off to the Sales. Billy Fisher, the young horseman of Allegheny, left the city for Indiana last evening to attend tbe horse sales at Cambridge. Raven Boy, Gray Davy and other good ones are to be sold. Mr. Fisher desires to buy a good horse. Hart's Business Yentare. In a letter to a friend in this city, Frank H. Hart, the pedestrian, states that he has entered the saloon business at San Francisco. He won nearly $4,000 in the recent six-day contest at that city, and ne means to try and make another business start in life by it Sporting Notes. Wise is to play short or tbo Bostons. The Phillies defeated the Jacksonville club on Saturday by 8 to 4. A picked nine defeated the Cleveland team by 12 to 9 at Hot Springs on Saturday. Maktlew failed to show up to wrestle Jesse Clark at Steubenville on Saturday night. Tho contest will take place to-night. Manages Phillips and President Nimick visited the ball grounds yesterday. Some alteration in the entrance gates were decided on. If the Pittsburgs does not make some of the Association clubs hunt leather this spring then there is no balm in Gilead. Philadelphia JPress. There is nothing definitely settled as yet regarding the Polo grounds. Another meeting of the Aldermanic Committee having tbe matter in charge will be held this week; and both sides will fight hard to win. TheNewYorks will strain every muscle to bold the grounds this season, and the property owners are using their influence to have One Hundred and Eleventh street cut through. A NATIONAL ORGANIZATION Of Unskilled Glass Workers to be Formed In May. A. meeting of committees from the various glass packers and mixers and teasers' local assemblies of the Knights of Labor was held yesterday at 1505 Carson street. The object of the gathering was to draw up a proposition for the formation of theTJlasshousenien's National Trades District of the K. of L. These men are employed in different branches ot the trade and have repeatedly tried to gain admission to the American Flint Glass Workers' Union, the Window Glass Workers' Association and tbe different organizations of green glass and prescription workers, but without success. The cause of their rejection was that they were not 'classed as skilled workmen. It was decided yesterday to send the proposition to all the local assemblies in the country, and a convention will be held in this city some time in May, when the organization will be formed.

General Boulanger Outlines His Flans and Declares That He is STILL IN FAVOfi OF A REPUBLIC. Measures Taken to Avert the Threatened Financial Crisis. HONOEING THE BASEBALL PLATERS Pabis, March 17. General Boulanger went to-day to Tours. The train which conveyed him stopped at Bloisand St Pierre des Corps, at both of which towns enthusiastic demonstrations were made in his honor. At Tours a crowd of 3,000 persons gathered at his hotel to -welcome him. In response to vociferous cheering the General appeared upon a balcony and expressed his thanks for the reception accorded him. In the evening a banquet was given, at which Senator Naqnet and several members of the Chamber of Deputies were present. In a speech M. Naquet pointed out the facility with which the adhesion of the Conservatives to a moderate republic might be obtained. He referred to General Bou-langer's intention to restore religious peace to the country by stopping the policy of persecution. Boulanger would appeal to the country, and if the nation voted to maintain the concordat the question should be allowed to rest for 40 years. BOULANGEB TALKS. General Boulanger followed with a speech of the usual kind. He said: "The Conservatives who follow me understand that the restoration of the monarchy is impossible without a violent upheaval, and they adhere to the Bepublic on condition that it be made habitable and be sanctioned by the people directly consulted." In concluding he 'repudiated, on behalf of the national party, the idea of either a monarchical conspiracy or demagoguery,de-claring that the goal toward which they were marching was a republic, hut a non-parliamentary republic, which would be the protectress of the weak and lowly, and be passionatelv preoccupied with the interests of the people, respecting tbe liberty of tbe individual and, above all the liberty of conscience. Deroulede and the other accused members ot the Patriotic League have been summoned to appear before the court on Tuesday next The Clarion, the organ of the Patriotic League, denies the existence of a plan for a descent by the League upon the Elysee and the Palais Bourbon. THE FINANCIAIi CRISIS. At the financiers' meeting this morning, M. Rouvier appealed to the bankers to unite on both moral and patriotic grounds. He expressed the hope that the 40,000,000 francs of fresh capital necessary to uphold the Comptoire d'Escompte would be Immediately subscribed. At a meeting of the Directors of the Bank of France, it was decided to make an additional advance of 20,000,000 francs on condition that a similar sum be subscribed elsewhere, in order to avert a judicial liquidation of the Comptoire d'Escompte's affairs. The Rothschilds subscribed 3.000,000 francs and the Credit Foncier 2,000.000. and thesub-scriptlonsof otberhouses brought theaggregate up to 36,000,000 francs. In response to M. Rou-vfer's appeal the Syndicate Chamber of Stock Brokers has agreed to advance 3.000,000 francs to tho Comptoir d'Escompte. The necessary amount 40,000.000 francs is now subscribed. Tavande & Cie. bankers of Lemans, have suspended. Their liabilities amount to several million francs. THE IRISH PROBLEM. Another Tory Writer Thinks He Has the Right Solntien. London, March 18. Clifford Lloyd writes to the Timet in advocacy of the abolition of the Irish Lord-Lieutenancy and Dublin Bureaucracy, and the granting to Ireland of a large measure of county government retaining the police as an Imperial organization and readjusting taxation. He says that if both parties in England could agree to give such a plan a fair trial there need be no misgiving as to the result If home rule is desirable and possible the scheme will-grow of Its accord, and this is preferable to forcing It upon tbe people at the risk of civil war. To settle tbe Irish question will need 111 the talent in both parties, and they must act together in the matter. Any attempt bv one party to face thejopposition offtbe other w'lil end In failure and perhaps in national disaster. ATTACKING HENRI GEORGE. The Thunderer Reads a Lesson to Members of Parliament. London, March 18. The Times attacks Messrs. Cremer and Clark, Radical members of Parliament, for joining with tbo Radical clubs in the welcome to Henry George on Saturday. The Times says: "Mr. George's doctrines corneas near spoliation as anything that has been proposed by a man with a character to lose since the French revolution. Men like Mr. Cremer wish to apply the operations of the Irish Leaguers to Ireland, Scotland and Wales." G00D-BIE, MILAN. The Servians Off With the Old and On With the New. Belgrade, March 17. An imposing service was held in the Cathedral to-day in honor of the accession of King Alexander. Tbe King, the ex-King, the Regents, the Cabinet ministers and all the diplomatic representatives were present The city was decorated with flags, and tbe celebration closed with illuminations and a torchlight procession. In the course ot the day the officials were received in farewell audience by ex-King Milan. A RUSSIAN MUTINY. The Cossacks of AchlnofTs Expedition Be come Rebellions. Constantinople, March 17. A mutiny broke out to-day among a portion of the Cossacks attached to Acbinoff s expedition. The Russian Consul tried to pacify tbe mutineers, but they refused to listen to him. and finally drove him away with threats of violence. Subsequently the unruly Cossacks were removed from the Russian man-of-war and placed on board another vessel bound for Odessa. Honoring the Baseball Players. .LONDON, March 17. Mr. Hollingshead, the theatrical manager, gave a supper in the "Niagara" exhibition building this evening in honor of the visiting American baseball.teams. The Duke of Beaufort and other prominent persons were present Germany's Samoan Commissioners. Berlin, March 17. It Is expected that Count Herbert Bismarck and Councillor Crauel will represent Germany in the Samoan Conference. Bow to Travel Cheaply In China. From the Mew York Sun.: Foreign residents of China apparently have one valuable resource when they are threatened with the abuse of a hostile mob. They may sew pigtails in their hats, don the dress of the country and become Chinese themselves to some extent, and the result will have a tendency to mollify the passions of the crowd. Mr. Horsburg, describing his recent journey 1,500 miles up the Yangtze river, put on Chinese attire, including the pigtail, and not the least advantage of his new costume was the fact that it enabled him to travel the first 1,000 miles for $17, while the fare for foreigners on the same boat was $70. Nobody mistook him for a Chinese, but he seemed to be regarded as an adopted fellow citizen, entitled to ,all tbe rights and privileges, including cheap living of a glorious country. "We have no reason to know in our own land that John is deeply prejudiced in favor of the light and airy attire he brings over with him. A Chicago Cariosity. .From the Chicago Xtm.i There Is said to be a saloon keeper In Chicago who is not running for alderman. It this be true the dime museums could, well afford to engage Jilni as a curiosity at $1,000 a'week, FAITH AM) THE ENEMY. Rev. Pother Murphy Preaches toParnders at the Cathedral. Eev. John T. Murphy, President of the Holy Ghost College, of this city, delivered the sermon at St. Paul's Cathedral last evening. His text was: "This is the victory that overcome th the world, your faith.' Father Murphy's sermon was delivered particularly to the members of the Catholic organizations who paraded in honor of St Patrick yesterday. In the first part of his discourse he reviewed Irish history, -and spoke of good deeds done by Ireland's patron saint He said that St Patrick's Day puts before tbe minds of Irishmen the fact that faith was tbe instrument be bestowed on (heir fathers as tbe most precious of gifts, 1,400 years ago. It Is faith that gave alumlnary to their lives, and a true value to their works. It raises them up above the littleness and misery of their life and files tbem in God. It reveals to them the greatness of their destiny. Tells tbem that they have been created, not for this world but for the next, not for themselves, but for God. Without faith a man's life, be he ever so talented, ever so great ever so pbweful, is wasted. Without faith a man is a victim to tbe vice and corruption and consequent delay of fallen human nature. Tbe enemy of their faith he claimed came to them with gloves on his hands, rings on his fingers, wearing pure linen and broadcloth, with a smile on bis lips. He does not openly attack tbe faith, but gives it a passing nod of respect. He finds his way into the sanctuary of the home. His work becomes easy when he find the coast clear. He eats h's way through their whole family system, until he has reduced it to one rotten mass of corruption. "Hand down your faith to your children intact and unsullied. Whatever else you do tor them, instill tbe faith with all its teachings and practices into their every fiber. Teach them to love it, to stand up for it, and to fight for it. if need be; yea, to die torit May God and St Patrick bless you and yours in this your grave mission to preserve and propagate our holy olden faith" A good many of the reverend gentleman's hearers construed some of his remarks about "the enemy" to mean the American Mechanics' order. IT MAY BE A STRIKE. The Master Painters to Enforce Their - Grading Proposition To-Day. Last Saturday was the last day given by the master painters to the journeymen to accept the grading proposition. The men had previously and emphatically declined. to accept tbe terms offered, and the result of the master painters' action will not be .known until to-day, when the men present themselves for work. The men do not believe their employers are in shape to stand a strike, and think that a better arrangement may be made this week. n. As has been stated, the master painters propose to divide the workers into three classes and grado , them according .to their ability the first class to receive S3K cents an hour, the second .27 cents and the third 20 cents. The journeymen painters claim that they cannot be graded properly and only 20-cent-an-hour men will be employed. The master painters state that under the present system, an inferior workman receives as much pay as one who is skilled in his calling, which is a loss to themselves, an Injustice to their customers and an injury to competent workmen. IT WAS A WATER HAUL. An Allegheny Raid That was Not Accompanied by Good Results. Chief of Police'Kirschler, of Alleghehy, learned that a number of mill men had engaged a room at No. 32 Beaver'avenue, and stocked ft with liquors, intending to enjoy themselves on Sunday.

They Strenuously Object to the Passage of the Shaw Bill, ancL, THINK THAT THEY SEE A SCHEME, At Least One Man Found Who Does Hot Want to be Ohio's Governor. Alii THE MEWS FROM KEAE-BI TOWNS rSTZCIAIi TXLKOnAMTO Tint DISPATCH. 1 Philipsbubq, March 17. The Shaw bill, now before the Legislature, which proposes to mate it compulsory on the part of coal operators to adopt for use in their mines a recently contrived apparatus intended to detect explosive gases in mines, has aroused intense indignation among the coal operators and mine laborers through-ont the entire Clearfield bituminous coal region. Petitions remonstrating against the passage of the bill are being extensively circulated and freely signed, and local meetings at many of the collieries are held nightly to de vise means of defeating the measure. At a largely attended meeting held yesterday by the operators and miners a formal petition was adopted to be presented to the Legislature by a committee of operators and mlno laborers. It is vigorously set forth in this remonstrance that no mechanical contrivance for. the detection of explosive gases in mines can take the place of constant vigilant personal inspection, without which such a device would be useless and unnecessary. It is estimated that the cost of putting in the apparatus, its maintenance and the extra extra expense of a royalty of 2 cents per ton on all coal mined would aggregate $1,600,000 annually, and as these heavy charges cannot be bome by the mine owners it is claimed that tbey must either come out of the miners' wages or out of the pockets of the consumers. The remonstrance lurther declares that the real object of tbe bill is to foist upon the mining industries of the State a useless, dangerous and most expensive patent for the profit of outside, interested parties. MASKED ROBBERS Or Something Else Bothering an Eccentric Ohio Capitalist. YotJNGSTOWN.March 17.

Stop the congestion, the irritation ceases and the cough is cured. But how to stbp the congestion ! Ah.there.is just where physicians have always been puzzled. But it must be checked, or pneumonia, quick consumption or some terrible pulmonary disease will follow. Some doctors give cod liver oil, others cough syrups, but the most advanced prescribe stimulants. Nature must be assisted. Pure whiskey will do it See what physicians say: Prof. Austin Flint of Bellevue (New York) College, says: "Tho judicious use of alcoholic stimulants is one of the striking characteristics of progress in the practice of medicine during the last half century." Professor Henry A. MoK, of New York, says: "The purity or Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey (as simple analytical tests will readily convince a physician or an expert) should certainly recommend it to tbe highest public favor." Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey is a certain cure and preventive of congestion and should be kept in every family. It is sold by all druggists and dealers. Be sure and secure the genuine. WHATSIN A NAME?
