About Our Busy People
WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND WHAT THEY SAY
In the Friday evening edition vof The
J urn al. each .week. you . will . find a
number jof | paragraphs and sketches \ un
der this heading, "About Our Busy Peo
ple." Don't pass them by with a hasty
glance, for they may contain information >
of special interest and . profit •to : you.
I am constantly going among our busi
ness houses and talking with their pro
prietors. -It;' gives me a chance to com
pare their goods and I save i you time and
trouble by telling where the best in dif
ferent lines may be found. When a special
bargain is mentioned I -will vouch for Its
merit. I examine the article, for "I'm
from Missouri," and the store man "has
to show me," and prove the value of hlB
bargain. ■ Watch for these paragraphs on
Friday, nights and you will find some good
hints about "where money can be saved
in doing your buying.

The ladies' department of the Clark

regular customers the other day and she
told me that she had tried most of the
firms in the city and now traded alto

cause their service was best, their com

absolutely exclusive, and their treatment
of patrons always courteous. She deals

BAD FOR BRUISERS
Judge Hollister's Decision a Blow
Below the Belt.
BOXER AND FIGHTER THE SAME
The Sangerf Debt Raiser* Are a
Sore Crowd—What About
the Forfeits?
t/mw York Sum Saaofaf Sefvtoa. .
Cincinnati, Ohio, Feb. 15.—Everybody in
Cincinnati to-day -wants to feel the
bump on the head of the- man who first i
suggested a prize fight as the proper means '
to lift the Saengerfest- debt. When
Judge Holister dealt out bis| little legal
, valentine to the fight." promoters
the last prop to the. prize' fighter
in Ohio was knocked from under him.
Hereafter he "will have about as much
; standing in this commonwealth as the
captain's dog has at sea.
The decision of Hollister is a sweeping
one. It forever disposes, of ; the flimsy
line of demarkation between the boxer and
the fighter. The novice who dons a pair
of pillows in his maiden, effort at the
"manly art" and the' champion who battles
for a fortune all look alike to the law in
• Ohio. There is no difference between the
amateur and the professional who boxes.
Both are offenders and both amenable un
der the law. The man who promotes or
seconds or witnesses a boxing match is as
culpable as the principals themselves, and
all of them are insistently invited to move
on..
Bruiser* Mast Move.
Nothing now remains for the fighters to
do save to pack up their luggage, collect
their forfeits and move along. As to the
forfeit question, there appears to be
""something doing." It is whispered to
day that the Saengerfest society might,
under the ruling of Hollister repudiate the
contract under which the society and the
fighters were operating. The stand is
taken that the decision vitiates the con
tract and that, if the society solicits it,
save its forfe't. There are those who
hold that while the society is not legally
obliged to pay the forfeit, there is a moral
obligation, which the society cannot well
ignore. Both contestants posted $2,500,
and the Saengerfest people deposited
$5,000. Of this latter sum, Jeffries, it was
agreed, is entitled by right of champion
ship to $3,750, and Ruhlin will find solace
in $1,250.
Cap of Sorrow Filled.
The dose the fighters got here yesterday
about fills to the brim the cup of worm
wood and gall which has ben crowding the
lips of the guild recently. Driven out of
the state, suppressed in the south and
middle west there does not appear any
thing more promising than the alkali
wastes of poverty-stricken Nevada. Even
in the sage brush state there is talk of
repealing the law under which Dan Stuart
pulled off the fight between Corbett and
Fltz.

on the, rising market since McKlnley's
election.
The Clark Co. handle a large amount of
country business and would be pleased to
correspond with parties in small towns
where there are no facilities for trading.
Inquiries regarding their method of car
rying these out-of-town accounts will be
promptly answered.
Here is a communication which I re
ceived a few days ago:
To the Editor:
Last FTiday I noticed a paragraph In
your column, regarding certain' articles
for gentlemen's wear. Will you kindly
inform me which styles of collar and tie
are correct for wear with evening dress,
and where they may be had.
—A. Reader.
I'm not an authority on dress, so I will
suggest that you go to B. G. Barnaby &
Co., corner Nicollet and Fourth street.
They will be pleased to give you the in
formation and you will find that they car
ry the best lines of every requisite of this
description. Watch them for the latest
styles.
The bowling alleys at 248 Nicollet ave
nue are again open and have been doing
a rushing business for the last two days.
Since the 4th of this month they have been
undergoing repairs which have worked a
grand transformation. First the painters
and paper hangers attended to the entire
interior, and every inch of wall and ceil
ing has a clean, new dress. With the ex
ception of the alley beds all the equipment
of the place has been replaced with new
material. Fast rebounding sideboards
have been built ln and new ball chutes
and backstops installed. The runways
have been lengthened until there are
twenty feet of clear space behind the foul
lines.
The alleys proper are of selected maple,
laid upon beds of cement. These have
been planed down and polished until their
surfaces are perfect, and the foreman in
charge of the work told me that they had
no superiors in the country. Many new
balls have been added to their already
large supply, and no expense has been
spared in catering to the wishes of pat
rons. It has required an outlay of over
$500, so you can see that the improvements
must be first-class. Light and ventila
tion are important features in such a
place, and in this respect these alleys
have no equal in the twin cities. There
are ample accommodations for spectators
who are welcome at all times. Twice each
month prizes are given for the highest
scores bowled. Go in and see if you can't
win some of them.
$67,000, are now mourning the further ex
penditure, recently, of nearly $50,000 more
for remodeling the hall, erecting a ring,
putting up arc lights, private boxes, and
seats for 15,000 persons who were expected
to view the Jeffries-Ruhling fight, estopped
yesterday by order of Judge Hollister in
the issuance of a permanent injunction.
Conferences were held to-day between
members of the Saengerfest Athletic As
sociation, counsel, and managers Brady,
Madden, Cook and others.
Late this afternoon all will get to
gether for a joint conference over the set
tlement of losses and a future course of
aotion.
Managers Brady and Madden estimate
their losse in prospective receipts for
theatrical engagements canceled in view of
the fight at $18,000 and $10,000 each. To
day they expressed themselves as being
against any "sure things" in the future.
All efforts to-day were directed toward
getting out of the tangle with as little
further expense as possible.
• Jeffries and Ruhlin will break camp to
day at their respective training quarters.
11l ICiHiN SOT DEFEATED
Dulutb Man Still In the Winnipeg
Bocsplel. i
Winnipeg, Man., Feb. 15.—At the bon
spiel the grand challenge competition had
narrowed down at review last evening to
twenty-six rinks and many games are in
progress. Outside players are holding
their own. Through a mistake it was an
nounced that Hurdon of Duluth, had been
defeated on the opening day. He is still
forging ahead, having defeated Heraen
way, Carman, and Stuart Selkirk. Among
the cracks to win were Sparling of Port
age. The Walkerville was opened with
ninety-four rinks. Deflel, of St. Paul, de
feated Breakey of Souris. Each man made
one or two first ends. Then it was a
fight to the finish for end, but St. Paul won
on the final by two points, 10 to 12. Hur
don defeated Dickson, of Alexander, and
Andrew, of Morden, defeated Ron Smith
of Duluth. Among the cracks defeated
were Sam Harstone by Whalen of Fort
William, and McDiarmid, by W. F. Payne
with his Free Press rink. The draw for
the royal Caledonian has bene made and
play commences to-day. Deflel is pitted
against Jones, Roland and Hurdon, and
Hurdon against Aldous of Winnipeg, As
siniboines and Ron Smith against Dick
son of Alexander.
FIGHTERS MAY "WRESTLE"
Jeffries and Rnhlin May Do the
Graeco-Roman.
Chicago, Feb. 15.—A special to the Trib
une from Cincinnati says: Jim Jeffries
and Gus Ruhlin may meet in a Graeco-
Romaa wrestling match within the next
ten days. An offer has been made the two
pugilists to meet on the mat and while
the proposition has not yet been accepted.
Mangers Brady and Madden have taken it
into consideration.
It is said a purse of $5,000 has been guar
anteed for the match, and that it may be
conducted in Saengerfest hall.
Y. M. C. A. Athletics.
The first of a series of "athletics" was held
at the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium last night. A
large and enthusiastic audience saw a dozen
or more athlete* compete in a twenty-five
yard dash, a shot put and hop, step and
jump, the last two being handicap events.
W. Griffith won the twenty-five-yard dash:
Win. Metzger, second; A. Cummings, third.
Time, 3 seconds.
The shot put was won by Gus Hobart,
scratch, 40 feet 3 inches; G. Tuck, second,
three feet handicap; Jeake, third, four feet
handicap.
J. Deveau, a limit man, won the hop, step
and jump, going 35; Bates, a scratch man,
second; A. Cummings, a scratch man, third.

Special to The Journal.
Fargo, N. D., Feb. 15.—The basket ball
game yesterday afternoon between the Uni
versity of Minnesota teem and the Y. M. 0.
A. was too one-sided to be interesting. The
visitors won by a score of 38 to 7. Their
team work was magnificent, and this with the
weakened condition of the Christians account
ed for the large score. This evening the
Fargo college team will play and Saturday
evening the agricultural college boys will
be matched against the Minnesotans. One
of the crack players of the Minnesota team,
Will Deering, is an old Fargo boy, and
his friends here are giving him a royal wel
come.

compiled a standard dictionary of Dickens'
characters, containing the traits and pecu
liarities of the creations of the master. No
one at the national capital was better posted
on the subject of irrigation than was Senator
Pierce, and in the senate and out of it he
was a most popular man. He was a pro
foundly intelligent-looking man, and of pre
possessing appearance. He was six feet tall,
his manner was affable and lie had a host
of admirers and friends.
