, The nnflo Ball Situation.
Thcro is no longer any doubt but that the
American Association intends to make a
strenuous effort to oust Menges nnd the
yWostorn Association club at Kansas City ,
h ffhoy fully intend to bring the mutter before
the arbitration committee at its next meetIng -
Ing , basing their claims on the ground that
Mcnges' club Is In direct violation of the No-
J * tlonal agreement. This , they say , will
( Justify the arbitration committee In enjoining -
ing the western club from playing there , but
' it doesn't seem probable , BO outrageously un
just is this whole proQpodlng against Mr.
numges und his luudublo enterprise , that
they will bo successful.
' \Vhltfleld , the prime mover in all this
-devilment , and the president of the Assoclu-
tion club down there , says :
"We ftllly Intend to lay the matter before
I'the arbitration committee at Its meeting next
* month. Mr. J. J. Helm , nnd our attorney and
myself will attend the meeting. Wo will go
with our guns loaded and expect to meet with
success. Of course you know our object at
the meeting , which is nothing more or less
than to prevent Mcngcs und his team from
playing here. The national agreement has
been violated , and I feel confident our claim
will bo confirmed. It has como to bo a matter
of buslnsss , and wo intend to transact our
bffalrs under business principles and adhere
strictly to them nt all times. It Is dollars and
cents lit our pockets to oust Mcngos. The
opportunity presents Itself and wo are going
to grasp it. Wo would bo chumps excuse
the expression should wo not make an effort
to clear the field , and every sensible man will
endorse our sentiments. Now , remember , I
don't say wa will be vlctorous , but wo uro
going to muko u supreme endeavor to have
everything our own way in Kansas City this
.season. Whitt , compromise with Mcngcsi
"Well , not If wo know ourselves. Wo will not
entertain a t > roi > oHlUon fora moment. Wo have
nothing to lose , as Mengcs could not possibly
l Imve us. shut out , and if the worst oomes to
r. worst \vomustonly consent to the western
association club playing hero. That , though ,
is | iosslblo yet hardly probable. "
The above should bo ull-sufllclcnt to con
vince the Western association that sooner or
later , and the sooner the better , all the minor
associations , out of self-respect und self-
" "prcservutlon , must withdraw from the great
national disagreement and combine and con
solidate in their own interests. This levying
of a fJ.M ) tax on the minor association elubs
by the older , for protection from their pira
cies , is simply a species of blackmail. A
burglar might as well demand u certain sum
VfrOln a morchiiht to Insure him against an at
tack from the jimmy and the skeleton key.
The minor associations can make them
selves as powerful within their own prov
inces as the National league und American
association uro within theirs. Let them com
bine , it is repeated , in self-defense , and us-
t-'sumo a defiant attitude toward the arrogant
and selfish older bodies , who seem to Imug-
< ino that they have been delegated by a su
preme power to run base ball and everything
und everybody that pertains thereto , the
' " vcountry over n sort of a Standard Oil syn
dicate , whoso policy is to control or
E klll. If the minor ussociatlons resolved
to blacklist forever every player who plujs
. them fiilso iu the matter of ignoring or jump
ing contracts , its effect would be most sola-
, , tury und Instantaneously felt througout thor
r base ball circles of the country ; let them rc-
, -fusoto exchange practice orexhibition games
v with cither of the older associations , and ig
nore all their rules and regulations in the
same measure that they , the older
associations , abiiso and mistreat those of
the younger , and the great potentates of the
base ball world will take a Very perceptible
. 'tumble. ' Young'players , being brought out
,4 , and developed iu the minor associations would
reflect long and seriously , with perpetual de-
barrmcnt slurring them in the face , before
they would tnko whut in nine cases out of ten
to a young player means , the fatal lean. The
time has come , the UKB reiterates , for the In
troduction of an Innovation In base ball gov
ernment , und that , too , by the Western
association and its confreres of similar
organizations. If Monges Isn't
i awarded the fullest protection by the arbi
tration committee , not another day should bo
lost , for It only means continued high-handed
maltreatment. Let the minor associations ,
in such an event , withdraw from the quusi-
protcctlon of the older associations , sue for
the lux that hus been wrongfully levied upon
them , and go it on their own hook , independ
ent nnd alone. The move has long been con
templated by a number of wise old heads , but
ns yet they have failed to summon up the nec
essary courugo to take the stop. "Live and lot
1 live" should bo the motto of the now forma
tion , and an "eye for an eye and a tooth for a
tooth" their war cry.
Four Strikes In Demand.
Thcro Is a strong movement among the
Western association clubs in favor of a return
& * -turn to the four strikes rule of last season. It
V . .certainly tended to enhance the interest in
tT * the game was conclusive of lively batting
knd base-running , the very cream of all con-
tlcsts. Many patrons of the game have been
interviewed by the UEF.'S base ball repre
sentative , and the sentiment In favor of the
extra strike is astonishingly unanimous. It
is the public , who foots ull to base ball bills ,
who especially wants the four strikes and
rtho attending base-running. The people care
for the basc-hit-on-bulls nominal
nothing - - - or any
nal , technical points , but they do want bat-
v ting and base-running , and it is very proba
ble ut the spring meetings u successful effort
in favor of four strikes \ \ ill bo made. At uny
E event , the change is bound to como sooner or
Western Association Umpires.
That the Western association hasn't fol
lowed in the wako of the older associations is

Messrs. I'enroso ft. Hnrdln have been

the players uniforms for the present season.

Each club travels r , tOO miles during the sea

$171 per rnao. The teams will carry about
1 i men each. This will make cuoh club's ex
penses about ? 3,4X ( ) , or a total for the whole

has been victorious in ull except two. One
was when ho fought with Patsy Cardiff nnd
broke his arm in the second round , and the
other was when ho mot Tug Wilson , and in
that encounter he was never struck a blow.
Tug stayed the number of rounds stipulated
in the contract , but It was done by continu
ally going dowu. In ono round ho went down
thirty-one times. Of the other 73S of Sulli

were bested. Over ono hundred times the

Snlltvnn anil Knlfton.
Hero is what "Macon" thinks of Knifton's
chances for winnlng 200of Sulllvau's wealth ,
and what Macon thinks of such matters is
mighty apt to bo right :
As to the big milkman's chances with Sul
livan , I must say that I think verv little of.
them. Knifton is a very big , soft follow ,
with plenty of strength , but only a moderate
share of science , nnd , if report is true , ho is
quito slow in fact , ho is Just the kind of an
opponent , that Sullivan would select If ho
bad his pick among u thousand. In my mind's '
eye I can , L imagine , sco the result of such a
contest. Ono round , with Sully feeling his
man just to got his gauge and learn just what
ho amounts to ; then a quick feint with the
loft , nnd , as the milkman breaks guard , a
smash on the jaw from Sullivan's tcrriblo

us groggy as a sailor three sheets in the winder
or lying a limp heap of humanity on the
ground , unable to respond to the call of time.

What ninlno'H Friends Mny.
WASIIISOTO.V , Fob. 10. [ Correspondence -
once of the BKE.J The political sdnsn-
tlon of the day Is Mr. Hlnlno's letter withdrawing -
drawing from the presidential raco. Mr.
Hlftlno Is it nmn of BO much Individuality that
ho never addresses the public without secur
ing the widest attention to what ho says. His
letter cump llko a clap of thunder from ft
cleat sky , as far as the general public was
concerned , but there were a luvored law who
hud been anticipating it for at least three
months past. When Uio national convention
met in Washington In December I was con- ;
fidcntlaliy Informed by one of Mr. Blntno's
most trusted lieutenants that the antagonism
which the Plumed Knight's opponents were
seeking to arouse as a bar to his candidacy
\vasentirely _ unnecessary.
"Kir. Hlalno will not bo a candidate , " said
my informant , "and the public will bo ap-
risedof this fact long before the national
convention meets in Juno. His wife is bit-
crly opixjsed to another canvass of dirt and
> llmo in which she no less than her husband
was dragged through the mlro of partisud
wlltics , and it has been largely on his no
: ount that she was so urgent that Mr. Ulalno
hould leave the country and spend the time
rior to the nominating convention ia a trip
f recreation abroad.
"As a matter of fact , " said this gentleman.
'I ' and a number of my friends know what
itrong inducements have been brought to
icar upon Mr. Bluino to prevent him front
ntly declining to load the republican hosts in
nothcr canvass. Ho has not hesitated timu
, nd again to protest in the strongest terms to
its most intimate admirers that his ambition
as a candidate had boon thoroughly satisfied ,
mil that ho had absolutely no dcsiro either to
brce his nomination upon the party or to ao
: ept a nomination from their hands. "
Whitolaw Held , of the New York Tribune ,
few days prior to this conversation , said
ubstantially the same thing to mo in his
iditorlal sanctum. Ho intimated that it was
ixtromcly doubtful whether Mr. Blalno
could bo prevailed upon to accept n nomina
tion if tendered him , and said that his friends
vero very apprehensive that , as the time for
.ho . national convention approached , ho
might refuse the canvass.
Mr. William Walter Phelps , the admitted
leutcnant of Mr. Blalno in Washington , has
maintained a close silence erer since the
cttcr appeared and has steadily declined to
jo interviewed by any of the reporters. It
as been a question with many whether Mr.
'helps believed that Mr. Blaine had really
withdrawn from the race , and suggestions
mve already appeared in print that his re-
'usal to make any comment njxm tho'Blalno
otter was duo to a kuowlcdgo of ulterior
natives on the part of the Maine statesman ,
am in a position to know to the contrary.
Mr. Phclps is cxtremelj dispirited and
lisheartencd at the publication of
Mr. Blaino's letter. Ho believes it to bo
conclusive and final and that no tender of the
nomination would induce Mr. Blaine to
hango his mind. In conversation on the
ubjcct yesterday ho said that ho felt at sea
and was at a loss to know what candidate
: ould secure the Blaine following.
"There are a number of candidates. " said
VIr. Phelps , "who can poll the lull party
strength , but our adherence to Mr. Blaine's
louse was duo to our knowledge that ho
could poll much more than the vote of his
party and on this account was , in our opinion ,
: > y far the strongest candidatp
, ho republicans could nominate.
Now that ho is out of the way , it remains to
bo seen who can most closely approximate to
his strength. The problem is largely one of
carrying New York , Now Jersey , Connecti
cut and Indiana , and the candidate who can
bring to the polls on election das' the largest
number of voters for the republican nominee
in those states is the man that Mr. Bluine's
friends desire to see chosen by the conven
There is n strong undercurrent of senti
ment in favor of the nomination of George
W. Childs , of Philadelphia. Notwithstand
ing the many protests of Mr. Childs that he
would not accept such a nomination if it
were tendered him , there has sprung up
within the last week a feeling that the proper
presentation of Mr. Child's name to the Chicago
cage convention would address itself to the
intelligence of the party , and that with him
us a candidate before the convention other
conflicting interests could rapidly bo concen
trated to secure his nomination. Mr. Childs
is the idol of Philadelphia and of eastern
workingmen generally. His philanthropy is
as broad as two continents. Every employe
iu his great newspaper establishment would
die in his defense. The letter carriers of
Philadelphia and the street car drivers ,
who , every Christmas , receive a warm
overcoat with the compliments of the genial
owner of the Ledger , would organize them
selves into missionary clubs to advance his
cause in every city in the country where they
have fellow workingmen. The printers of
the United States , who look up to Mr. Chllds
as the head of the typographical profession
and the benefactor of the Typographical
union , would take their coats off in every
country town to work fortheirpatron. Labor
generally throughout the country , it is be
lieved , would swing vigorously into line for
a man who has often been suggested as the
arbitrator for labor disputes and who has
only been refused by employing capital on
the ground that ho was certain to yield every
time to the demands of the working people.
Added to this comes the argument that Mr.
Childs is a man of largo means , could carry
New Jersey on the tariff issue and , as a con
servative , high-minded and honored citizen of
the republic , would come us close to carrying
Now York us any other candidate who could
It would not bo surprising if the Childs
boom , which has already been started by a
vigorous editorial of Aleck McClure in the
Philadelphia Times , should spread itself ex
tensively over the cast within the next ninety
days , Of course Mr. Childs will continue to
protest that his ambition lies in another di
rection , and there is no doubt that ho Is quite
sincere in his declination , but it is noted that ,
while the editorial columns of the Ledger
decline to consider such a possibility as Mr.
Childs , nomination , the news columns con
tain very frequent references from outside
sources to Mr. Childs as a presidential pos
sibility. More than this , every writer who
suggests the Chicago convention in connec
tion with Mr. Childs' nnmo and scuds a
marked copy to the editor of the Lodger i
sure within a few days to receive a courteous
nota thanking him for his friendly notice
which , while its suggestion can never bo car
ried out , is appreciated as an evidence of the
friendly feeling which is felt towards the
editor of the Ledger.

little to occupy the time of the senate but UK

in favor of such a course ; but as the "prcced

STOCKHAM , Feb. 18. [ Correspondence of
ho BKK , ] The recent cut made by the Bur-
ington on rates to Chicago is having a dlsas-
rous effect on the towns and people along
he linoijf the Elkhorn route. The reduction
amounts to about 4 cents a bushel , and ns the
"ilkhorn has so far failed to meet the rcduc-
ion it is losing n largo amount of business ,
which is going to its rivals. It also results in
oss to the shippers on this line , as they can
rot nothing to market in competition with
their competitors on the other lines , nnd
'armors nro obliged to abandon their natural
markets and haul long distances , which dc-
irivcs them , in n large measure , of the bene
fits they would receive had the Northwestern
met the cut. It is to bo hoped that self inter
est will compel it to do it at once.

Nebraska City's Kntcrprlse.
NumufeKA CITT , Neb. , Fob. 19. [ Corres
pondence of tbo BEE. ] The people of Ne
braska City have become very enthusiastic
over schemes for advertising the superior
advantages of the city In the cast. The board
of trade has taken hold of the matter in
earnest , and some good results may bo cx-
locted. Many citizens have volunteered
subscriptions towards a fund of $10,000 for
advertising purposes , nnd it is proposed to
send a man out on the rend to "talk Nebraska
ity" and induce and
immigration , rnanu-
ructurcrs to locate here , to which end liberal
Inuncial encouragement will bo offered to
resixmsiblo parties. To the board of trade
principally belongs the credit of Nebraska
City's continued prospoiity , und the board
prospers with the city , it having increased
, ts membership during the past month from
thirty to seventy-live , including many busi
ness men of standing iu the city.
An interesting fact relating to the Chicago ,
Burlington & Qniticy bridge now being built
icross the river hero has just been brought
io the notice of Nebraska City people. While
Lho bridge spans the river connecting Ne
braska and Idwn , the structure Is , or will be ,
jntircly In the former state , consequently the
taxes derived therefrom , which will amount
to something llko 815,000 per year , will bene
fit Nebraska City exclusively. This is the
only bridge on the river which is entirely in
ono state. The repeated chuugcs of the river
channel have finally brought the stream to
its present bed , a half mile or more on the
Nebraska sfdo of the dividing line between
the states. Work on the bridge is progress
ing rapidly , nil the caissons being finished
and the first span of the bridge completed
yesterday. It is the Intention of tlio company
to have the bridge completed Dy Juno or July
If possible , and every endeavor will bo made
to accomplish it.
History of Spring Ranche.
SPUING KAXCIIE , Neb. , Feb. 17. [ Corre
spondence of the HKI : . ] This is by no means
a now point but for many years has been
laying dormant. But now by the oullding of
the Kansas City & Omaha railroad new life
Is being infused into it. Spring Rancho Is
situated in the southwest corner of Clay
county , on the Little Blue valley , sixteen
miles southeast of Hastings. The Kansas
City & Omaha railroad , which extends from
Omaha to Fairficld and from Fnirfield to
Alma caused to bo platted and laid out 130
acres into town lots , which is on the old gov
ernment trull from Fort Leavenworth to
Fort Kearney , and thence united with the
Platte valley trail that led to the mountains
Away back in the 50's , when the rush to
the gold fields and stage routes were estab
lished nnd later the pony express became
necessary , what were called "ranches" woio
located at intervals along the valley , nt con
venient places for water and making hay.
Stables und corrals were built and generally a
store w.is to bo fouud where the emigrant
could buy provisions for his journey to the
land of gold. Spring Ituucho was the lust
rancho on the Blue ut thut point whcro they
loft the valley nnd struck across the divide
for Fort Kearney , a distance of fifty miles ,
and that the most dangerous section of any
un the route. The grand old hero and pioneer
who for so many yeais defended his rancho
and protected the emigrant from Iho ever
dreaded Sioux Indian Is still hero , honored
and respected by every one who knows him.
His name is Jumcs Balntcr. Three times he
was burnt out und driven away by the In
dians , but on their last raid , in ISO" , when
every rancho froui Kearney to the mouth of
the Uig Sandy was burned and the people all
along the line were massacred , Mr.Balnter ,
son und wife and nluu stage boys bravely
fought two or three huudred Sioux Indians
under the le.ul of White Antelope for .two
days and nights and then , by killing the
chief , came oft victorious. They were found
ut thut time by the troops who were hasten
ing down the line from Kearney.
To return to the place , Spring Rancho con
tains ut present two stores , ono blacksmith
shop , ono boarding house , several dwelling
houses , two churches , one school house , dc-
jKt of the Kansas City & Oiuulm railroad and
the Spring llaucho double roller mills which
are running night und day to fill orders. A
few are making preparations for building in
the early spring. This place will likely take
quite a boom , as the Kansas City , Lawrence
fc Northwestern survey crosses hero on its
line to Hustings , but It comes up the Blue
from Hebron , and the Rock Island will also
cross hero from Nelson to Hustings. The
Missouri Pacific from Superior to Hustings
comes close to us on the west , of which the
trackhu ors huvo reached the Blue. There is
a good opening for ull kinds of business hero.
The country is ell settled and the valley
full of stock. The greatest need Is n good
doctor und drug store. Both would be heart
ily welcomed , _

HOW HEARST WAS SKINNED ,
The Fortunes That tVcro Ijost anil
Won In the Morning Slur Mine.
Now York Graphic : Two of the tables
in the cafe of the St. .Tntncs hotel wore
drawn up together last night , nnd there
was n nlco , jolly company seated around
thntn. Senator Tom Bowcn , of Colorado
rado , was there , nnd , so was Senator
Hearst , of California. Besides the two
statesmen there were Tom Kelly , ' of
Arizona , who ia n colonel when at homo ;
Judge A. C. MoiiHon , of San Francisco ,
who knows as much about horsus as any
other man on the coast ; Aleck Mor
risen , who is the champion orator of the
Sierras ; J. C. Stubbs , the general trafllo
manager of the Union Pacific , who pulls
the wool over the eyes of castorri rail
road magnates with a gentle truthful
ness that cannot bo excelled ; Mart
Flavin , who went out sleigh riding a
few nights ago nnd asserts that ho drop
ped the tip of his frost-bitten ear in the
sleigh , and half n dozen other good
story-tellers known to fame on the Pa
Tom Bowcn had told several of his
well worn tales , the end of which al
ways was whiBporcd in a half mysteri
ous way , and tno judge for the hun
dredth time had related the particulrrs
of his trip to Europe. Fem Kelly had
not Bald a word.
"Tom , old boy , " said tholong-beartlod
senator from Calj/onna , "do you re
member the deal you gave us on that
tnino near Tombstone , back in 1880 ? I
really never know the true history of
that scalping buttinci-s , but it is all over
now , and you ought to toll us how you
played it on us. You know you cleaned
mo out of a cool $100,000. "
"Georgo , " answered the colonel , nnd
ho looked very solemn and truthful
like , " 1 think I did best you on that
bargain and , by the glaciers of the
Hookies , I think I am the ono man on
the coust who ever downed the senator
in n mining deal. But I did and this
is the story. "
"Tombstone , Ariz. , was a very bad
town half a dozen years ago , and it is
not much of a paradise on earth just yet ,
though they have hanged and shot n
couple of hundred of the wort > t rustlers
within the last year or two. I was
around there prospecting in the neigh
borhood early in 1880 , and to confess the
truth I was hard up. I was literally
walking on my shoo strings. I could
not Und anything around that country
worth getting George Hearst and my
other capitalistic friends tosnund money
upon , and I was about pulling up my
stakes when I ran across an old mine ,
called the Morning Star , about two
miles from Tombstone , which \\ns
owned by'some of the toughc&t citizens
in that town. It looked promising and
I wrote to Hearst about it. Ho came on
and looked at the liolo , nosed around for
a cyuplo of days , and then said ho would
not give $1 an acre for it. Twenty-four
hours before ho had mudo that
statement to mo ho and sev
eral of his friends had formed
a 'little syndicate and had pur
chased that very mine for $23,000. I
was loft out. I was mad , but not half ho
mad as I ypis a covulo of weeks later ,
when I found tlmt the now owners had
blocked the mine for $1,000,000 1,000.000
shares at $1 each and were boiling the
shares pretty rapidly on the San Fran
cisco market at about 60 cents apiece.
It was enough to make any man en
"Georgo oircd old Piggy McLaughlin ,
ono of the best minors on the coust , to
clear away the debris iiround the place
and dig down to pay dirt. Ho had n
force of about twenty men with him. I
though I saw my way clear , when Mao
came long , for I had often grub-staked
him in the old days , as ho had mo
also. So wo put our heads together.
"Tho Morning Star boom went right
along for-a little while , and I believe
George and his friends got rid of about
500,000 shares and'cashed into their cof
fers nearly $300.000 on their outlay of
$25,000. But eight months after the
shares were first put upon the market ,
a committed came along from the share
holders and found that there was not a
pouud of paying ere on the dump.
"Throe days after they returned to
San Francisco and had got rid of their
own stock at a profit the shares fell to
"Tho next day McLaughlin received a.
dispatch from Hearst telling him to
stop work and discharge the men at the
end of the week. It was Friday when
the telegram reached Mac , and ho and
1 were condoling with each other over
the failure wo had met with , for really
not an indication of pay dirt had yet
boon reached. It looked blue for both
of us ns wo walked over to where the
men were preparing for their last blast.
It was an old hole drilled by the former
owners and had been loft untouched.
Our follows hiiid they would take no
chances , but would use George Hearst's
powder sticks to blast everything within
reach , for they , too , werornad and ugly.
"When Mac and I looked carolcbsly
into that long hole after the smoke hud
cleared away you could have knocked
cither of us over with a featoor. The
fortune wo had longed for lay at our
foot. The last blast hud dibclosod ono
of the finest bodied of ere wo had ever
"Wo jnado no outcry , and the miners
paying no attention to the hole wo
covered it up and wont buck to camp.
That night wo lot three of the most
reckless devils in the outfit into the
secret , and the next morning 1 started
for Srn Francisco , No man was to leave
the camp until I roturncd. McLuugh-
liir and the other three fellows were to
hold thorn there by sweet words if pos
sible , by shotguns if neceswiry.
"I rathed a few hundred dollars in
'FriKCO , played half of it in Gourloy's
hank end stepped out of there with
more than $1,200. The shares of the
Morning Star mine were worth nothing ,
and 1 had no trouble in gathering them
in. But I went along quietly und utliiht
I called upon George Heurut. I know
he hud about 200,000 of them.
"I told the old boy I thought I saw a
way of making a couple of hundred dollars
lars out of the shares by belling thorn in
eastern capitulUtu , and us they woru
worth nothing to him I otTereu him a
$100 note for all ho had. He. jumped at
the otToV , and I walked out of his olllco
with nearly 300,000 shares.
"The next morning the Chronicle had
a half-column story of the great discov
ery at the Morning Star minennd I wnts
oft my way back to TombHton6. Two
days after'I got there George Heariit

" 'Tom , you nro a skin. ' And
then ho wont away.
"I sold the mine in six weeks , nnd
mj' share was just a plump million of
dollars. No ! I am done with mining
now. Now York , London and Paris nra
good enough for mo. "
"I think it is my turn to treat , " said
the big California senator.
And Tom Kelly took wino.
Ills Ingenuity Miscarried.

Sympathy For a Colored Man.
Now London Telegraph : Deacon
Isaac Doniuon , of Mystic , had n bill ol
$4.50 about four months ago against s
colored man for gracorics , which ho
could not collect , so he soi/.cd the man's
horse as security , with u time limit of
four months in which the could pay up
or have the animal auctioned oil to pay
the debt. The limit expercd Tuesday
and the horse was trolled out to bo sola
to the highest bidder. There waa an
immense crowd assumblcd when the
bids were opened. The sympathy of the
people seemed to bo with the colored
delinquent , and the bidding wes lively ,
raising 1 cent at a timo. It kept right
on until it reached $2.11. and and nt
this sum the horse was knocked down to
Re-swell Brown. Then the crowd chipped
in enough to pay for the horse and to
buy a bag of meal , and they turned the
horse and meal over to the colored man
as n gift , and now wears u smile clear
across the back of his nock.
