President Sawyer , of the LAW and
Order League , has been iniulo dufemlnnt
In n litigation which , if the allegations of
Ilio plaintiffs arc true , will destroy his
Usefulness as n reformer and seriously
Impair his standing and reputation as n
lawyer. Tiio title of the action is "Albert
'G. ' E. Holmes and Huby L. IIolme < by
Leoniilas K. Holmes , their guardian , vs
F. A. W. Shimcr , Oco. II. Walker , An-
ilrow S. Sawyer and Winoiia Sawyer. "
1'ho original defendants when the suit
\vas commenced last winter , were Shinier
and Walker only , butyesterday Ilio plain-
tin's Hied an amended petition making
the Sawyers the real defendants , and ex
pressly stipulating that they have no
cause of action against Walker directly.
The facts sot lorth in the petition arc
that in August , 1877 , George II. Walker ,
of Harlan , Iowa , was the owner of lot 4 ,
block 89 , In the city of Lincoln , which was
leased for a term of years by Anna J.
Holmes , mother of the minor plalntili's.
It was agreed In the lease that Mrs.
Holmes should pay a certain rental , and
erect buildings on the land , and that
when the lease expired the improvements
should bo appraised , and an opportunity
given Walker to ' purchase the prop
erty. If he refused to take it
at the prlco then Mrs. Holmes was to
, have the privilege of buying it at the
* prleti named. Mrs. Holmes creeled a
line two-story brick dwelling , and since
her death a similar house has been put
up by the heirs. In 187U , thinking it
would be safer to hare the title in her
own hands , the plaintifis engaged Saw
yer as their attorney to buy the realty
Irom Walker , and instructed him to pay
as high as $ l-10l ) if necessary. After a
long delay Sawyer informed them that
AValkor would not sell , and Holmes sug
gested that ho had bolter go over to Iowa
and sue him. Sawyer said it would bo no
use to do so , as Walker , if inclined to sell
nt all , would make the deal through him.
Some months after this Sawyer reported
that Walker had sold and deeded the
laud to one F. A. W. Shinier , who was
tlion in Florida.
Hero the matter rested until about the
middle of February last , when Holmes
applied direct to Walker for information
about the sale , and was told that Sawyer
had conducted the negotiations in the
name of thu plaintiffs , and that Walker
supposed the sale was made to them , as
ho did not know of any party named
Shinier in the transaction. Mr.
Walker further said that Saw
yer told him the Holmes would
not pay over ? GOO for the land , and that
he had duelled it to them at that figure.
in April , 1883. the deed being delivered
to Sawyer. The plaintiffs then tendered
Sawyer the money ho had paid Walker
and demanded that the property bo
transferred to them. This Sawyer re
fused , on the ground that the sale was
made to Shinier , and the Holmes had no
claim or interest.
The plaintiffs' attorneys , Messrs. J. R.
Webster and Hillingsly & Woodward ,
assort that if a deed to Shimcr is in ex
istence it is a forgery or an alteration
from the deed originally made to Holmes
by Walker , or was obtained in blank by
false pretenses from Walker and
Shimcrs1 name inserted in lieu of
Holmes' . As the matter standsSaw.ver , is
not only accused of unprofessional con
duct in boating his own clients , but is
charged with having got the land . 'rom
Walker for $000 less than it was really
worth , and than his clients wore willing
to pay.

ing. " Foster was willing and anxious to
share their authorship with his friend
Shiras. but the latter often laughingly
told 1'oster that ho was welcome to all
the reputation he would get out of their
publication. Shiras was a litcrarr gen
ius. Ho was well-educated , _ brilliant ,
and possessed of a fertile , active mind.
Ho wasanibitlous.andanimatcd by the no
blest pnrpo3cs. F r some years , and atiho
Umo of his death , ho was connected with
the I'iltsburg Commercial Journal. All his
literary work was full of merit.and many
of his productions gained wide attention.
Ho published two small poems , the best
known of which nro "Dollars and
Dimes , " "Kcdcmption of Labor , " and
"Tho Iron City. " i'liuso ho considered
his best work , but he strangely refused
to acknowledge the authorship of the
beautiful soncs which would have given
his name , with that of Foster , world-wide
renown. Foster was a natural musician
and composer. His soul was full of the
poetry of sound. lie had a line , clTi'in-
Hiate face , ami his nature was as soft and
yielding as a maiden's. Ho was a
dreamer , often sad and melancholy , and
every bar of his beautiful , simple
music is marked with the charac
teristics of his nature. Ho found
close sympathy in the line ,
poetic mind of Ins friend Shiras. The
two had been intimate friends from boy
hood , anil all their Icisuro time was spent
together , later in life , in "Aunt Hccky's"
little back parlor , where were given birth
these beautiful songs whicli nave since
been sacred to millions of hearts Poor
Shiras died nt the ago of 20 years. His
obituary , from which most of these facts'
were obtained , was written by Jane Gray
Swissholm. Foster died some year after
the death of his friend. Ho went to
New York city , where bodied in 1801 ,
from Hie effect of a fall in the Uowory.
He was widely known and very popular.
His funeral was attended largely by the
literary , theatrical and musical classes.

CHICAOO , April 11 , 1880. [ Special Cor
respondence of the BEE. ] Rarely , if over
before , has the great doaiain of Ameri
can sporta presented a brighter outlook
than it docs at the present time ; and be
fore another thirty daysshall have passed ,
many of the greatest athletic and sport
ing organizations of the country will
have taken the field , and the track for
another season of outdoor sports. The
llrst of these will bo the crack base ball
teams of the country , and it is safe to say
there is not ono lad in ono hundred , in
cither country or city , whoso heart docs
not pulsate a tritle more rapidly , and
whoso eye does not glisten with expectant
pleasure at the crack of the bat and ball ,
and the accompanying cry of the um
pire. The great games of last year be
tween the Now York and Chicago teams
raised a degree of enthusiasm over the
national gave never before known ; mid
the sight of 20,000 people in attendance
at thu games between Ihcsu two crack
clubs in the Chicago grounds last Fouclli
of July was unprecedented in the history
of base ball. With each year , slnco the
formation of the National League in 1870 ,
the game of base ball has steadily grown
in pu'-ity of character , in popular favor ,
in point of creditable management , and
uspcctnblo patronage , until to-day it is
ermcd the National Game of America ,
ivilh every claim to the titlo.
What last year gave us in brilliant play-
ng , closely contested games and rcmariC-
) le victories , this present year promises
10 duplicate , if , indeed , it does not excel.
The two great loams of last season Chi-
ago and New York are much the same
11 their personnel this year. Chicago
ivill possess fourteen players , viz : McCormick -
mick , Clarkson. and Flynn. pitchers ;
Moolic and Flint , catchers ; Anson , first
jasu ; Pfoflfcr , second base ; Williamson ,
.bird base ; Ryan or Burns short ; Sunday
or Kelley , right lield ; Gore , center Hold ;
and Dalrymplc. loft Hold. Thus it will
bo seen that all of the old players have
been retained , three now ones added ,
namely : Flynn , Mcolic , and Rj-an. The
Irst two named , last year formed the
jraok ballory of the New England
League , and came highly recommended
by Burns , Clarkson , and Williamson ,
iviio had scon thorn play. Flynn is a Hi
de fellow , slight of build , and not much
bigger in staluto than Larry Corcoran ,
our old-time pitcher , now with the Now
Yorks , but ids muscles are as linn as
tempered rubber , and ho is as quick as a
; at upon the Held , besides having a cool
.lead , and an accurate delivery.
George Moolie , who will hold down
Flynn's delivery , is a short built , muscu
lar follow of 2:5 : , with a hand and tin arm
capable , so far as apperanccs go , of
slopping any ball that every Ictt a
litchcr's hands or tipped a bat. He is
thoroughly acquainted with Flynn's style ,
and the two are said lo work together
with the accuracy of a machine.
Ryan displayed his ability _ as a ball
player in our closing games with Phila
delphia last year. Was at that time
stamped by Alison as "a good one. "
All these are looked upon as valuable
acquisitions to the club , and but little
doubt is expressed but they will prove
themselves such , before the season lias
far advanced.
Mr. A. G. Spaulding , president of the
club , sent the entire loam lo Hot Spring ,
Ark. ; March 18. for a preliminary season
ot exorcise and systematic treatment in
the baths , and they are now playing ex
hibition games with the Southern league
teams of Memphis , Nashville. Savannah ,
Atlanta and Macon , in order to put
themselves in thorough shape for the
championship games , the first of which
they will play in Kansas City , April 29.
All arc confluent that the pennant will
como to Chicaco again this year.
Now York will also enter the lield with
its old team , via : Welch , Keofp , Deal-
soy and Ewing as the batteries , big
Roger Connor at first base , Joe Gcrhardt
at second.Johnny Ward at short , Rich
ardson or Estorbrook at third , Dorgan at
right , O'Rourkc at center and Gillespio at
left. Thus the great batting strength
and admirable fielding qualities of the
team will bo preserved with the proba
bility that with the advantage of ono sea
son's practice , they will play bettor ball
this season than ever before.
Probably no team in the league has
been strengthened and improved to a
greater extent than has that of Detroit ,
Its absorption of the Indianapolis club ;
its acquisition of Baldwin , now looked
upon as one of the likeliest young pitch
ers of the country , and its scoop of the
"big four" from the Buffalo team , to say
nothing of the half dozen promising
young players it has signed on trial ,
places it high in the ranks in almost
every point of playing. The team as
now stoned consists of Manning , Brouth-
ors , \V hito , Richardson and Rowe ( the
big four ) , Crane , Lawrence , Twicholl ,
Baldwin , Hall and Fitzsinimons ( a now
battery ) , Getzoin , Thompson and Ben
nett. It is generally conceded that if
past records are to show for anything ,
Detroit should have the heaviest batting
team in the country. They are now
playing exhibition games in the south.
Philadelphia will prove n popular and
attraclivo loam this year , for its players
arc all young , good-looking athletes , ca
pable of milking vo'-y interosling any
frame into which they may participate ,
The team now consists of Fogarty , An
drews , Mulvey , Ganzol , Sotelo , Bignall ,
Titcomb , Guehror , Arthur Irwin , Cloii-
onts , Casey , Farrell , Ferguson anil Me-
Guiro. The veteran Harry Wright will
manage the team.
St. Louis is another team which is
showing up particularly strong , and the
internal bickerings and unpleasant fool'
ings which did so much to injure it las )
year soum to _ have been lorover dispelled
uiulor the vigorous management of tin
manager. Mr. Sohmulz , formerly of the
Atlantic team , Capl. Dunlnp will again
handle the team upon the diamond anil
will play his old position at second base ,
wilh Denny , Glasscock and McKinnon tc
make up what is looked upon as tlu
crack in-field of the Icaguo. In additioi
the club will play Cabin , Qiiinn , Saner
Scery , Dohui. Healj\ Howard , Boyle am
Kirby. Much moro is anticipated of this
team than they did last.
The old Bostons will show up will
much the same team they played las
year , and with Nash , Poorman , Johnsloi
and Stommoycr as the young blood o
the team promise to hold their own ovei
agajnst thu crack teams , they are to g <
The now teams , Kansas City and
Washington , nro made up largely of oh
League players who have been releasei
from the old League teams to make ii ]
the new clubs , and judging from the pros
out outlook , they will eaon show up wit !
very credilablo aggregation.
Washington will have Barr ami Hine
and Shaw and Gilligan as batteries. Tli

Baker , Knowlus and Gludman , of the oh
Nationals , will play in the now team
and Paul Ilinos , of the old Bostons , Dav

backbone of the nine. Kansas City Is
boiling over with flathuMnsut over her

and short-stop. It Ii scarcely expected In
view of the energy and enthusiasm which
the now cities have' entered the League
circuit , that cither. Providence of IhilTalo

In addition to the teams of the jJational

Dow Drop _ . All are in first-class condi
tion , and it is said that Dow Drop , the
great § 29,000 filly , will have all of the
three-year old stakes at her mercy , if she
continues in her present goodhhapo. The
Palo Alto and Santa Anita stables of the
Pacific slope district are expected to show
up particularly stroii" ; this year. Bald
win's acquisition of Isaac Murphy , who
will ride the Santa Anita cracks this year ,
and who is unquestionably the greatest
of all American jockeys , has madu that

uoforo. After the close of the season at
Memphis the cracks will go to Lexington ,
Louisville , Labonia , St. Louis , and Chicago
cage , which great mooting from June 20
to Aug. 14 , will , with $00,000 in added

of course the meetings at Rockaway
Beach , Brighton Beach , Jerome Park ,
Sheopshcad Bay , Monmouth Park and
Saratoga , will bo under full blast.
The trotting season will bo opened at
Philadelphia May 4 to 7 by the meeting
at the Gentleman's Driving Park , and
soou after the different trotting circuit *
in all sections will have opened up for
the season. Like thu base ball season ,
tno racing season this year promises to
bo one of unprecedented brilliancy.
Affairs in the aquatio world also
promise much for this year. The great
race between John ' 1 comer and Jake
Gaudaur , for the single scull champion
ship and stakes of $1,000 a side , will take
place at St. Louis Juno 1 ; uud Hanlon ,
Ross , Gaudaur , Lee , Tcomur , and all of
the great professionals are ex
pected to moot in grand con
test at Oak Point , N. Y , , on Decoration
day. ! 'J
Beach , the Australian champion who
won the world's single scull champion
ship from Hanlon .last summer on the
Paramctla couriio 'near Sydney , will
reach England this month , and will sland
defend iipbntho Thames , ,
ready to , JIKMIK course
his claim to thowo/Id's , ' championship.
It is quite pcokiblo that Teenier ,
Gaudaur , Ross and' , Hanlon will cross
the Atlantic to measure blades with Mr.
Beach. " '
The English yacht Galatea will reach
Now York some ) time in August to try
during the folio\yng } nionth to wrest the
Queen's cup from the Now York Yacht
Club in posscsiiom i > f whicli it has boon
since the creat victory of the "America"
over the Knglisli yacht in 1835. The at
tempts of the Genusla , thu crack English
cutter to win the cup last summer against
Puritan , will bo remembered by all
lovers of aquatic sports. This year the
Puritan mny again bo the bearer ol
American colors in the nice , although
the new sloop Atlantic , now building at
Boston , it is said will prove her right in
the trial races to bear the American
pennant in this great event.
Foot-ball , lacrosse , lawn tennis , sprint
ing and general athletics , are alrcadj
commencing to enjoy a boom , whicli it is
said will be greater than in any season
heretofore known. In Chicago during
the past winter , there have peen a grcatui
number of. athletic events with the glove
and in wrestling , than wo have enjoyed
iu any season past. The great wrcotliiiE
matches at St. Louis between Evan Lewis
thu' Wisconsin lumberman , and Mutstuk
Sorlkichl , the Jap , wtsro the most nota
ble events of the year in wrestling , and
wore witnessed by over 0,000 people.
The great success of Lewis is remarkable ,
and thcro are these in athletic circles
who do not hesitate to pronounce him
the John Sullivan of his time in his line
of athletics.
In matters of the glove , thomomorablo
battles of the year have not been confined
to Chicago , but have extended from
coast to coast of this broad country ,
and no past year has witnessed the
growth in popularity and fame of so
many young knights of the glovo. Jack
Burke , J.nok Dcmpsoy , Tommy Warren ,
Frank ( } lover , and so many more have
arisen like wonders in their calling , ami
never before have such skill and science
been attained in lliu cultivation of the
manly art. On May 3d next Jack Burke ,
who I look upon to-day as the cleverest
man of his weight in the world , will
meet Frank Glover , the Illinois cham
pion heavy weight , nt Battery D in this
city. The battle promises to bo a mem
orable ) ono in Iho history of the ring. It
is understood that soon after ,
Jack Deinpsoy , the famous mid
dle weight , whoso recent battle wilh
George La Blanche , was telegraphed to
almost every prominent newspaper in the
world , will meet Charlie Mitchell , the
champion middle weight , also in lids
city. To those who have not seen these
great exponents of the fistic art in a
"battlefor blood , " further details of their
style , achievements and history would
doubtless prove interesting , and if lean
find space in my next loiter , 1 promise to
give it. For fear that I have already
crowded too much into this letlor , how
ever , I will put the pin in here and slop.
It Should 15o Generally Known
that thu multitude of diseases of a scrofu
Ions nature generally proceed from a tor
pill condition of ths liver. The blood becomes
comes impure because the liver docs not
act properly and work oil'the poison from
the system , and the curtain results are

tumors , ulcers and kindred affectionsv or
soUling upon Ibo lungs and poisoning
their uclicalo lissucs , until ulecration ,
breaking down and consumption is es
tablished. Dr. Pierce's "Golden Medical
Discovery" will , by acting upon the liver
and purifying the blood , cure till these

Nelson H. Baker , District Attorney ,
Wcstchcsler Co. , N. Y. , office at While
Plains , writes Juno 20,1885 : "Fiveyears
ago 1 , my two sons and wife were very
liable to colds. We woi'o the heaviest
clothing , wrapping ourselves very warm ;
but it was colds , coughs and catarrh all
the time. Finally wo commenced wearing
Allcoeks Pourous Plasters as chest pro
tectors. The first year we got rid of our
heavy flannel as well as all coughs and
colds. Wo each were two Plasters on the
chest and pit of the stomach for three or
'our weeks at a time , then washed the

hey appeared to warm and invigorate
.ho whole body so that wo never took
cold. "
