*.n Afternoon of Splend Sport at the
Drivins ParkFearnaug I Alvin
Make One of the Flue nt Kaces Ever Se.
In tUe StateFour Heats In 2i30 and
Better Improvement on the Ground
Any lover of turf sports living in St. Pau
or Minne ip ilia, who failed to visit the St.
Paul Driving park yesterday afternoon, made
ft mistake and missed an afternoon of rare
port. The day was everything that conld
be desired for the enjoyment of oat door
sports, the sun shining out from a clear sky
with its rays comfortably temper ed by cool
breezes from the north. The programme
ct events p-epared for the amuse
ment of those attending, was very attractive,
while several of the horses announced to
take part, were known to be fast and evenly
matcaed. But the fact that the races were
.aimpy for the sp^rt of the thing and with
no purses pending, led a good many turf
patro ns to conclude that they would be
tame and spiritless affairs. Past experience,
no doubt, justified these expectations, but
.euoh was not the case yesterday, for better,
more closely contested an 1 excitiug races,
espociullv Uat between Mr. St. Germain's
etalhon Fearn ught and Mr. Porter's Haniil
toniau gelding Alvin B., was never seen on
the grounds of the St. Paul Drivin park.
While the attendance was very much
smaller than the merits ot the sport, the
enterpiibe of the management and li b
erality ot the owners of the horses deserved,
.there was i illy a goodly number of people
present for a raitinee performance, includ
ing many ladies.
Before the first race was called the re
porter took a run over the grounds to see
the improvements iag on in preparation for
the State fair. Tue track, as stated in the
GLOUK or yestorday, has been put in thor
ough repair under the direction of Mr.
Cuarle Mclntire, and will on ly require an
occasional scraping and rolling to make it
as nearly perfect as possible. The old ex
hibition" buildings aie receiving a new
coat of paint on the outside, while all
need ed lepairs aie being made on the in
terior. The new twenty stall stable stand
ing just west of No. 1 exhibition building,
before menti mod, is nearly completed, and
presents a very sightly appearance, the out
aide finish being in keeping with the exhibi
tion buildings, while its interior arrange
ments are a* nearly perfect aa th ey an bo
mad e. Abmt twenty rods north, the frame
of another stible, 116x2.3, is up, and this
week still another stable will be commenced,
and abo the building for the mch show,
end work upon the enlargeme nt of the gra nd
etaui, whicu to be maie to acjommodate
double its present ae iting ipacity.
The next trot wis in tha 2:4.) class, two in
three, in which tlure were also three start
ers: Mr. Overpeck's Flora, driven by Geo.
Smith, Fairmont, driven by Mr. Porter, and
Cuarles Rued, by Mr. St. Anthony. As
usual with Flora, she did her business well
in the first heat, vki ig the mile in 2:30
without a skip, faiimont second, and
Reed third. Iu the second he it Reed
took the lead from the start, and held it to
the numb, Flora acting badly and coating in
last. Time 2:46^. In the third heat Flora
took the lead witu Fairmont second. En
tering the home stretch all three horses were
woll together and trotting finely, when Reed
threw a shoe and merely trotted to save his
distance. Flora and Fairmont, however,
eontiued the struggle, bat just after passing
the dittauue Fairmont carried the mare from
her feut, and, taking the lead, passed under
the wire iu 2:37}^. the fastest heat of the
race. In the fuinih Reel had it all his own
way, taking the heat and the race, Flora
runuin^ two-thirds of the distance, and Fair
mont not bjnig plined. Ti.ne 2.47.

txpecteu Fearnaught, out his actual per
mance was a surprise, and made him
many warm admirers, lie net only showing
better speed th an ever before in a private
race, but exhibiti ng a steadiness aud staying
qualities of the very highest order. The
race was three in five, and five heats had to
bo trotted to settle it, tbe four last being
trotted in 2:33 or better, and the two last in
2:31. In the first heat Fearnaught took the
lead and held it to the finish without
a skip in 2:38^. In the second
heat the horses trotted side by side from
start to finish, Alvin B. sticking
his inse first uiw'er the wire in 2:1)3.
The third heat was a repetition of the second
except that Fearnaught gothto thetwire first,
time 2:32*4. I
fourt hea Alvi
lead the pace, winning the heat in 2:31.
Both horses had now won two heats and the
excitement ran high. The horses were sent
off as if a double team, trotting to the quar
ter in 38, and the half in 1:15, without a
perceptible change in position. Down the
back stretch Fearnaught sh wed his head a
'ILtle to the front, which a Wantage he in
creased to half length at the head of the
thome stretch. Down the stretch the horses
thundered without a skip, Fearnaught grad
ually increasing his lead to two lengths when
ihe passed under the wire, the time being
2:31. Il was a glorious race.
In addition to the above there was a half
mile running dash, a pacing match, a gen
tlemens' driving race. The latter had three
ies, the race being won by Mr. Gale of
nneapolis, in 2:57. The pacing race was
won by Overpeck's Fanny Slow. The only
fault with the prog a nme was its length, the

A FALSK SVEXT.
How A Insurance Agent Had a Man Ar
rested for Incendiarism.
Chief of Police Weber received yesterday
morning certain telegrams from Frontenac,
Wabashaw county, descriptive of a man
traveling from that place with unchecked
rest and hold. The man, a young Canadian
named Alfred Perry of moat respectable and
innocent appearance, was accordingly locked
up on his arrival by the 1:54 P. M. train on
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad.
By the evening tram over the same road ar
rived Mr. Keyes from the same village, at
whose request the a.rest had been made.
Then came the true inwardness of the case.
It appears that on Thursday evening
last, the flouring mill at Frontenac owned by
Keyes was destroyed by fire, the origin be
ing palpably the work of an incendiary.
Perry was an employe of Keyes, and
the two locked up the mill at
8 P. M. of the day named, the fire occurring
the same night, between 11 and 12 o'clock.
Previous to closing the mill, Keyes placed iu
a drawer of a desk in the mill office $1,100
in money, the act being accomplished with
out the knowledge of Perry or any one else,
as far as Keyes knew. Yesterday morning,
Perry left Frontenac, and was paid $27 at
the depot by Keyes, being the former's wages
then due. After the departure of Perry,
there came along to Frontenac the insurance
agent in whose company the mill was under
written to the extent of $14,000, the prop
erty b^ing valued at $20,000. Hearing of
the $1,100 in the drawer aud the departure
of Perry, this wiseacre of an agent induced
Keyes to telegraph the order for Perry's ar
rest, with which Keyes very foolishly com
plied. Hence the whole business that
threatened a sensation.
Perry submitted patiently to his arrest,
but cried bitterly at the suspicion cast upon
his character thereby. When searched he
was found to have $23 upon his person, and
his trunk, which was searched on the arrival
of Keyes, failed to develop a trace of mon
ey. Keyes expressed the utmost sorrow at
the course he had pursued in causing the ar
rest of Perry, who had been a most faithful
servant, aud in whose innocence he had al
ways expressed the utmost confidence, but
tlio plaguy agent had goaded him on. Per
rv was liberated last night, after his trunk
was turned inside out by the chief of police,

The force of laboreis upon the Rice street
sewer is being gradually organized under the
generalship of Aid. Grace, the snperin

embarrassing from the fact of the workmen
not having been heretofore pi id their wages.
All this has now been happily ob\ iated. Ar
rangements have been made for the regular and
prompt payment of the men, and the contract
is now expected to pass along smoothly to its
He's plucky, if he is small whereby is
meant Chief of Police Weber. Shortly before
midnight last night, a burly Sixth warder un
dertook to "clean oat" everything on Bridge
square, and then took to his heels across the
bridge before he had half finished his contract,
with the chief and some citizens after him. The
way the, head of the police force "sat down"
upon that bruiser was a caution, and th fiati
cuffer will have ample time to consider theieon
until to-morrow morning, when Judge Flint
will hear all about it.
The difficulties heretofore noted in the GLO BE
as existing between the St. Paul & Pacific and
Northern Pacific railroads are in a fair way of
amicable adjustment by friendly arbitration,
the parties to whom the matters are to be re
ferred being thf superintendent of the Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy railroad, Mr. Harris, on
behalf ot the Northern Pacific, and the general
freight agent of the Illinois Central, Mr.
Tucker, for the St. Paul & Pacific. In conver
sation yesterday with a GLO BE reporter, Mr.
Farley said the basis of the arbitration was the
same as that offered by him two months ago.
The sidewalk in front of the Hay wood block,
which has been a subjet of reqeunt mention
iu these columns, is in a most disreputable
condition. Nor is this all, the balustrades of
the projecting stairways to the doors are in a
disgraceful state of rottenness and danger. A
lady, in passing the other night, happened to
touch one of them, when down it fell, grazing
her painfully. In this connection it should be
stated that the opposite sidewalk ia obstructed
in a most unwarrantable manner by the contrac
tor for the oaoitol extension, and a Scylla and
Charybdisof difficulties to pedestrians are' thus
presented that ought to receive the immediate
attention for remedy to the powers that be.
Everybody has heard of the noble deeds of
the famous dogs of St. Bernard in rescuing
human life amid the wow drifts of the 8wins
Alps,, but it is not often that one hears of a
boy saving the life of a St. Bernard dog. Yet
this occurred yesterday in this wise: The
youngest boy waiter at Grote's Tivoli took the
magnificent St. Bernard dogs of the establish
ment, Modoc and Nero, down to the river for a
swim. Everything went off pleasantly for
seme time, the dogs retrieving pieces of wood
most handsomely, until Modoc dived under a
projecting plank placed just above the bridge
to catch drift wood. Modoc became entangled
somehow under the plank, to such intense
agony of the boy. thatgafter ye'lmg out i*e-
onsly 'Modoc! ModocF a nnmt er nf tim"st he
plunged in, body, sonl and bieeches, a1

youth, while Modoc, safelv ashore, shook his
shaggy sides in evident glee.
Considering the sultry weather, there was
quite a large audience at the Opera house la
evening to witness the performance of Hey
wood's New York minstrels. The entertain
me nt was an olio of oddity differing in mai
respocts from the usual routine of mimtr 1
performances, and seemed to give general satis
faction to those who witnessed it. The defi
ciency in vocalists was more th counter
balanced by the extreme drolleiy the funnv

Attorney General Wilson and Supreme Court
Clerk Nicholls returned on Friday evening from
Little Falls. Morrison comnty, where they had
been in attendance as commissioners to take
evidence on land claims in dispute by the
Brainerd branch. Between fifty and sixty
cases came before them, but iny were ad
justed amicably without the intervention of
the commission. The pine land cases remain
yet to be settled, and are the most difficult of
adjudication of the whole, especially as some
claimants have already received their patents.
The commission adjourned withont deciding
the question as to the when and the where the
testimony upon these claims was to be taken.

i Popularity of Lake Elmo.
The GLO BE announced some weeks ago that
the summer resort provided at Like Elmo by
the Stillwater & Taylor's Falls railroad, and
placed in charge of Messrs. Flower & Guthurz,
surpassed anything of the kind in the State.
There are hundreds who can now testify to
the correctness of this statement. It is
thronged with visitors, and all, with one ac
cord, unite in its praise. Mr. Stickney, the
superintendent of the road, who has had the im
provements in immediate charge, is constantly
providing some ad utional comfort or pleasure
for the guests and the public. Lat night he
ran a "swimming train" special, giving visitors
an opportunity to run out at 5 P. M. or 7:4(JP. M.
and return to the city at 11 P. M. Some hun
dred and fifty or more availed themselves of
this opportunity to visit this beautiful retreat.
It is the intention, we understand, to make
thiB Saturday night "swimmi ng train" a per
manent thing for the season.
