THE FMEVENT.
The Second Day of the Northwestern
Exposition at Minneapolis.
KOBE DETAILS OF EXHIBITS.
The Record of the Races in the After
noon.
THE COMPETITIVE MILITIA DRILL
What There is to See and Where It is to
be Found.
The weather yesterday was anything but
agreeable. It was cold and damp, and to
that reason is ascribed the fact of the
astonishingly small attendance at the fair
grounds. It was folly 9 o'clock before
the people began to arrive, and then in
small squads of a half dozen each. It
was expected that the military tournamant
would prove a big drawing card, bat the
conclusion was an error. The track sports
also failed proving very attractive to the
masses. The various buildings, neverthe
less, were well thronged by midday by
admirers of the elaborate displays.
AWABDING PBEMrtTMS.
The awarding committees began their
work of putting up the ribbons. They
went nearly through the stables occupied
by the Norman horses and those of the
Hereford cattle. To-day the work will be
continued as rapidly as possible
The balloon, ail inflated,on its way from
the gas works to the grounds in the
morning attracted considerable attentior.
But with good weather to-day the grounds
will be visited by thousands. The exhibits
are so extensive and of such a magnificent
character that they must win widespread
notoriety and attract the people.
Ihe Machinery Exit ibit.
A Globe representative consumed a
couple of pleasant hours yesterday in go
ing through mechanical hall and .noticed
a vast improvement in the arrangement
of exhibits and found numerous displays
of various articles that he had not wit
nessed the day before. Everything was in
proper order and thenoisa and confusion
of the preceding dry, consequent upon
fixing up temporary stands was |oonspicn
ously absent.
DOU3IE SAW MILL.
The Pray Manufactaring company have
a double circular siw mill on exhibition
which is attracting much attention from
those interested in the lumber business.
One point of excellence in this machine
and which is not embodied in other mills
is that the saw boxes are rigid, while the
frame is adjustable and allows the whole,
frame to be carried up to or away from
the carriage, as may bo desired. In low
ering the top saw both ends ara raised to
gether equally and simultaneously, bat
either end car, be raised as desired to ad
just tin arbois nline. After tho adjust
ment is once made, in raising or lowering
the arbor for different sized saws it is al
ways retained. . Thf ?awa can be adjusted !
in line while nina; to place them verti
cally or in l;Le with the cut. The saw
£u:d:-- are easily adjustable without dan
ger t ) the sawyer, and either the inside or
outside guir!e c.-a be moved at
will, or both together if necessary,
the guides for top arid bottom saws being
constructed on the same principle. An
other point of superiority is that the bot
tom aroor can be removed at any time
without disturbing a bolt of the top saw
rig. The frame for tho top saw is only on
the front end of the husk, thus leaving the
rear end entirely clear for the removal of
the lower arbor, and no part of it is en
dangered by wide and heavy, sidings or
slabs falling upon it. The husk is solid
casting, planed on both top and bottom,
and only requires to be laid on timbers
prepared for it, when it is ready for work.
The top saw can be started or
stopped at any time by a
lever on the frame and within
easy reach of the sawyer. The boxes on
the arbors are self oiling and the linings
are interchangeable. It is an invention
which well deserves the inspection of all
interested in this branch of industry.
''■ PORTABLE HOUSES.
I {Forrest's portable house and automatic
car soapier are attracting a large share of
attention. The latter invention is an in
genious contrivance which is awaiting
capital to introduce it.
BZWXHG MACHINES.
The light-running ''Domestic" Sewing
Machine Co. ha? a grand exhibit which at
tracted a multitude of ladies who eagerly i
watch the operating of the machine. Tho
tinder braiding nod the vibrating presser
foot used in the "Domestic" allow a range !
of work to be done by any person. Every
part of it is made of steel and case hard
ened.
*£,The gas stoves exhibited in the gallery
by Chas. Stierle, of St. Poal, are much ex- j
amined. By means of this utensil, atmos- I
pheric gas is made to do family cooking. [
Heciaini3 that gas will be the fuel of the |
future and that there will be 1833 danger I
from conflagration originating in chim- j
ney? and defective as at the present I
time.
The Acme fire kindlers are also on ex
hibition, one kindier which costs bat a
penny being suficient to start three fires.
They are made of sawdust and some res
inou i substance mixed together.
CBK»MEES.
The Cooley creamers, manufactured in
sixteen different sizes for dairy or factory
use, are exhibited by the manufacturers,
Whittier & Ensign, of Northfield, Minn.

attract the attention of rural
visitors. They have also rectangular
churns holding from nine to sixty gallons,
the largest being adapted for use in cream
eries and large dairies, They are fitted
/with crank 3at both ends, and so arranged
that a pulley can be attached for connect

approach it for harness, carriage tops, and
valises.

wood casing which was burned almost en
tirely through in several places, but the oil
did not ignite.
I'LOBAL DISPLAY.
The floral dieylaya of the Mendenbail
\ green houses and also of C. A. Smith de
serve more than a passing notice. They
look magnificent and add considerably to
the attractiveness of the hall. The vege
table display of C. A. Smith is a fine one.
There are six bunches of Scotch
kale which are extremely
fine, Ihe largest meaßuriug six feet in cir
cumference.
CUETISS COJIMEBCIAL COLLEGE.

exhibit of this popular institution is one
of the marked features of the fair. The

penwork, from plain writing to the most
artistic engrossing and pen-drawing. This
college has. in its course everything needed
to prepare young people for business. Its
several departments are for instruction in

equal to those of a year ago, are of a grand
magnitude. The building is down on the

Tlie Horses.
Next to ihe cattle, the horses form a
great feature of the fair. Minnesota, be
yond question, takes more real interest and
more genuine pride in fine horse?, and in
breeding the same, than any other branch
appertaining to the farm. Stock farms
are now located in every section of tho
state. Special attention in this connection
is paid to imported animals, and as a re
sult there are not only thousands of fast
trotters and thoroughbred running horses,
but a -large number of the heaviest breeds
of draught animals, owned and being bred
in Minnesota. The fair management ap
preciated this fact, and taking advantage
of the popularity of such animals, made
the greatest effort to secure the magnifi
cent exhibition which astonished the pat
rons of the grounds. The stables at the ex
treme southeast portions of the grounds are
favored with the trotters and the thorough
bred?. It needs bat a visit to these ani
mals to satisfy any one that Minnesota is
rapidly taking a front rank in the breed
ing of horses. A more detailed :-aention
of the horse exhibit will be made to-mor
row.

The display of swine is not very exten
, sive, but are said to be of excellent breeds.

31. 8. O. Prize Drill.
The first of the advertised attractions of
the day was the prize drill by four compa
nies of the First regiment of the M. S.
National Guards, for a prize of $1,000,
divided $400, $300, $200 and $100. The
companies competing were all from Min
neapolis and St. Paul, viz: Co. "A," Capt.
Harrison and Lieuts. Barnard and Hatch,
Minneapolis; Co. "B," Capt. Wielch and
Lieuts. Brown aLd Williams; Co. "C,"
Capt. Wright and Lieuts. Sibley and
Becker, St. Paul; Co. '"D," Capt. Bean and
Lieuts. Peteh and Mitsch. The compa
nies each presented twenty-five men, ex
cept Co. "D," Capt. Bean, which appeared
with thirty-two file?. The judges*
were regular army officers a3 follows:
Lieut. Glenn, 251h infantry, Lieut. Rucker,
2d cavalry, and Lieut. Ahem 25th infantry
Bat little interest was shown by the gener
al public in the drill, not more than two
hundred persons being among the specta
tors in carraiges and in the grand stand.
Col. Bend, Lieut. Johnson, Surgeon Dav
enport and assistant Surgeon Fitzgerald,
"of the First regiment field officers, and
Col. Bobleter and Capt. Hunter of Fari
bault, and Lieuts. Hard and Clyde of
Little Falls, of the Second regiment were
present as interested spectators
of the different movements. In drawing for
order of drill company "C" of St. Paul,
was so unfortunate as to be first, followed
in order by "A," "D' and "B." The order
of drill was inspection, school of the sol
dier, manual of arms, school of the com
pany, firings and platoon movement, the
exercises concluding with battalion; dre3s
parade. Each company had forty minutes
in which to go through the different ' evo
lutions, though each company wa3 given
a few minutes additional time. The good
points made by the several companies
*ere applaaded though it was noticeable
/that company "A" had most friends
on the ground. The contest be
tween companies "A and "D" was
exceedingly close, spectators with a smat
tering knowledge of the different move
ments btiag very evenly divided in opin
ion as to which did th« best. Alter '"C"
and "A" hid gone through tha order of
drill, a recess of half mi hour was taken
for lunch, owing to which the- drill of the
last company was not concluded when the
hones were called up for the races. _
When the judges had made their analysis
of the stindiog of the several competi
fc^Q KSS wmxSSSSam m b4 -lS! ESfli - fid E€ Jr

tors, the companies were paraded for
■jattalion dress pnrade, under command
of Col. Bend. As it proved the
battalion was formed, a3 they
ware awarded, Co. "D" having the right
with "A" second, "B" third and "C on the
left. After the parade and the officers had
drawn up in front of Col. Bend, that
officer stepped up and shook handa with
Capt. Bean, Capt. Harrison, Capt. Welch
and Capt. Wright, that being the signal
that they had been awarded prizes in that
order. It is understood that Co. "D" was
viator over Co. "A" by five points, though
only the general standing was announced,
"B" having 16 7-10; "A" 16 6-10; "B"
14 5 10 and "C" 14 1 10 out of a possible
18. The parade dismiss6d,Capt. Bean was
warmly congratulated, while his com
pany was heartily cheered by
the other companies, Co. "A" not
being a whit behind the others in hearti
ness, though feeling their defeat most
keenly, they, as well as company "D,"
having worked most faithfully to fit them
selves for the contest.
The Racf-s.
The racing programme for the after
noon had only three events, trotting in the
2:50 and 2:28 classes, and running, mile
dash. The horses were called at 2p. in., at
■which time there were less than a thousand
persons in the grand stand, as many more
probably being scattered about the
grounds, lining the fence?, and in car
riages. The day •was dark and dreary, sky
overcast with clouds, and a cold, raw wind
from the north, while the track was slow,
there being several soft places in it. The
judges were Mr. T. Grattan, of Preston,
starter; Gapt. Tno?. B. Marrett, St.
Paul, and Win. 11. Ensign, of Minneapolis,
and B. D. Woodmansee and F. C. rills
bury as timers, and Frank Hessler secre
tary of the course. The rulings were
strict in all cases, and by some thought
severe in the two instances — that when the
heat was taken from Hancock and decided
a dead with the mare Catharine, and when,
a dead heat was declared between Nettie G.
and Lulu Judd. In both these cases the
drivers that made the complaints resulting
in the decisions were among the loudest
to complain before the respective
races were concluded, the own
er of Catharine because his
man got a record thereby, and the latter
because he was afterward* removed trooi
his sulky. We well remember that on the
first day of the state fair at Rochester last
year, when Mr. Grattan was starting judge,
very similar proceedings were indulged in
by some of the drivers, and similar severe
measures were employed by him. The
result was that the races for the remainder
of the week moved along smoothly, each
driver making a good show of trying to
win, and refraining from making protests
for mere buncombe. And so it will be
here. Fooling and . trickery won't pay
with Grattan in the stand.
TROTTING — 2:28 CLASS.
The first race was trotting in the 2:28
class, for which the entries J. A. Lovejoy,
b. g. Gen'l Hancock, Dr. E. A. Dunsmocr,
b. g. Charlie Champ, W. B. Moshier, c. m.
Catharine, and H. Barns, b. s. Fearnau^ht,
bat the first three only oame for the word,
Fearnaught being drawn. The horses drew
position!?, with Hancock at the pole, Cath
arine in the middle and Champ outside.
In the pools Hancock sold at "> to 1 over
the field as favorite, They were sent off
for the first heat on the third effort. Cath
arine left herje-et immediately after ienv
ing the wire, and eight or ten lengths to
the rear, a position she held to the finish.
In going to the quarter Hancock opened
up a lead of three lengths of Champ. In
going, to the half Champ mado up this
distance, tod the two trotted head and
head to the distauee, from which he gained
very slowly and went under the wire, win
ning the heat by a neck. Time 2:31)^.
While Charlie Champ's performance in
the first heat was an unusually good one
for him under the circumstances, it was the
very general opinion that Hancock was con
veniently eased up on the back stretch and
that in fact while Hancock was not actually
held, he was not driven home as rapidly as
he could have been. This opinion wa3
sustained -by the pool betting, the know
ing ones continuing to make him the fav
orite at $5 to $4 for the field. Later it
became [evident that the driver of Hancock,
deliberately dropped the first heat to give
Champ second money, a scheme that was
spoiled by his swerve in the fourth heat.
The second heat was without particular
interest. Champ and Hancock went to
gether to the eighth with Catharine trail
ing. At the quarter Hancock had two
lengths the best of Champ, and from this
hour the race was a procession, though
Catharine made a good push for second
place on the home but failed by nearly a
length. Time, 2:32^.
For the third heat, one of the evenest
starts ever seen on a race track was se
cured . . Before the quarter was reached,
however, Hancock had pulled to the front
and the balance of the heat was a proces
sion so far as he was concerned. A little
interest was excited on the home stretch
by the struggle between Champ and Cath
arine for second place, both trotting level
and finishing on even times. Time —
2:31%.
la the fourth heat tho driver of Cathe
rine sent her for first place from the start,
but Hancock was too speedy and 0 itharine
losing her feet on the back stretch her
opportunity was gone, though she closed
up a, ; gap of six lengths on the home
stretch and was on nearly even terms at
that distance when she again left her feet
and started on a run, but was kept in con
trol by her driver. Champ just saved
his distance. As Hancock swerved
on the home stretch from the center of
the track to the outside, of which the driver
made complaint. The judges gave the
heat to Catharine, Hancock second. Time,
2:30
Hancock continued to Bell favorite in
the pools at 10 to 5. The horses were sent
off in the fifth heat, Cathrine
and Hancock going as a double team
to the first turn, when Hancock pulled to
the front, and at the quarter he had a
lead of three lengths. The driver of Cath
arine continued to send her along lively,
and though Hancock maintained his lead
to the finish he had no time to lose, the
heat being the fastest of the race. Champ
just saved his distance. Time, 2:27%;

much, foot for the balance, and won with i
the groatest easa in threa straight heats, !
the only interest being iv the contests for !
second and third place. j
The starters were as follows, tii3 horses
going in the order named: Wm. H. Mat
thews, b m Prilia; John Archer bl m L>:la
Jadd; Isaac Staples, eh s Viator; H. Barts,
br m Orinda; G. P. Jackson, br s Volun
teer, Jr.; and E. A. Parker, b m Netty G.
In the pool selling on the ground before
the first race, Nettie G. and Viator sold for
$5 each, the field bringing $3 and $5
alternatively.
A very fair start was had ia the first
heat, Volunteer and Judd having a triiie
the best of it, with Orinda, Viator and
Nettie well up, Prilia up. On passing the
quarter Nettie made play for the lead, soon
passing Orinda and Volunteer, Jr., who
were on even terms, with Victor three
lengths back. Going down the back stretch
Nettie opened up a lead of six lengths, an
advantage she held to the distance, when
Parker pulled her to a jog, going under
the wire with a length the best of Volun
teer, Jr., who was a length ahead of Orinde,
who had abont the same advantage of
Viator, Prilia a bad fifth and Judd a still
worse sixth. The driver of Orinda made a
complaint that he was fouled by Volunteer,
Jr., on the back stretch, and evidence sus
taining the complaint, Orinda was given
second place, Time 2:37%.
After three trials the horses were sent off
to an excellent start. Nettie took the pole
at the turn, Orinda and Volunteer head
and head two lengths behind, Orinda on
the jump, Viator close up and Prilia four
lengths behind aud bobbing. At the
quarter Nettie had three lengths the
lead, positions of the others unchanged.
Just after passiDg the quarter Volunteer
broke and fell to the rear, and from this
point the race was a procession, Nettie G.
finishing in a jog four lengths ahead of
Orinda, who had a length the best of Via
tor, followed by Jadd, Volunteer and Pril
ia. A complaint was made that Orinda
gained on her run on the first stretch, but
the complaint was not sustained. Time,
2:35^.
Before the third heat was started the
judges called Mr. Archer, the driver of
Lulu Judd to the stand and proposed
putting John Palmer up behind her. Mr.
Archer protested that he was doing the
best he could with the mare, and that he
should win if he could, and upon this as
surance be was allowed to retain bis seat.
' The horses were away in the second
effort to an excellent start, Nettie G.
Onnda and Volunteer were on even terms
at the quarter with Judd right on their
wheels. Here Nettie broke and dropped
to fifth place, the others maintaining their
positions. Settling down Nettie was sent,
along very fast and had the lead at the half,
while Judd had worked into second place.
The rest of the race was a procession, the
finish being Nettie G, Lulu Judd, Orinda,
Volunteer, Jr., Viator and \ Prilia. Mr.
Archer, however, made complaint that
Nettie was pacing when she passed Judd,
and 'also that Volunteer fowled him on
the se oud turu. The j udges thinking the
evidence of the patrol judge and other
drivers sustained the complaint, declared
the heat dead between Nettie and Judi.
Time, 2:33J.£.
The decision of the judges as abova was
hailed with hearty applause by those still

greater satisfaction was ixi;ir>iffsted when
