GREAT WHIST MEET
Local Players Awaiting' the Mil
waukee Congress With Interest.
18 CONTESTS TO BE PLAYED
Summary of the Roles Governing
Each-Ainu of the Gen
al Play.
Interest in Minneapolis whist circles
centers now In th« approaching eleventh
American whist congress at Hotel Poster,
Milwaukee, the week of July 29-A.ug. 3.
The plan of play adopted by the executive
committee contemplates eighteen contests.
They have been arranged in this order;
.. First—A contest for the Hamilton club
trophy and the championship for teams of
four for the year 1901-1902, open to one team
of four players from each league club, the
teams entering to be drawn against each
other by lot (East vs. West as far as pos
sible) and to play on Tuesday afternoon a
match of twenty-lour deals, the winners, If
there are more than eight, to be again drawn
against each other, and to play on Tuesday
evening a match of twenty-four deals, and
so on thereafter, until the number of teams
remaining is not more than eight; these re
maining teams to enter the finals, each team
playing a match of twenty-four or more
deals against each of the others; these
matches to take place on the afternoons and
evenings of the remaining days, the team
winning the greatest number of matches in
the finals to be declared the winner.
Second—A contest for the first possession of
the American Whist League challenge trophy
for the year 1001-1902, op«n to one team of
tour players from each league olub. This
•ontest will be conduoted in the same way
•■ that for the Hamilton trophy, except that
only alz teams will enter the finals. The
ft rat match will begin at 2 p. m. Wednesday.
The MJnn.«ja.poli* Trophy.
Third—A contest for the Minneapolis trophy
and the championship for club pairs for the
year 1901-190S, open to one pair from each
league club, the preliminary rounds to ocou
py the afternoons and evenings of Thursday
and Friday; play under the Mitchell system,
wlta a redistribution of pairs after each
round, so as to bring as many pairs as pos
sible against each other; the number of
tricks won by each pair on each deal will be
oompared with the average number won on
that deal by all of the players sitting in the
same direction, and such pair recorded as
Winning, losing or tying on that deal, ac
cordingly. Whenever, in determining such
average, a fractional result is obtained which
differs from a whole number by not more
than on«-tb.ird, the nearest whole number
•will be taken as the average for the pur
posa of the foregoing comparison. Each deal
will be considered as a match, and both a
match, and a trick score will be kept. The
trick score will be made up in the usual
method by the comparison of each pair's to
tal trick score with the average total trlok
•core of all the players sitting in the same
direction. The eight pairs having the high
est aggregate match scores will be entitled
to enter the finals.
In case of a tie for the eighth position, the
pair whose average trick score is the higher
•will be given the preference.
! The finals will be played In two rounds on'
Saturday afternoon and evening. The How
ell pair system of movement will be used
and each deal will be treated as a match,
as in the preliminaries; provided, however,
that, in case the same score is obtained at
three tables, such score ■will bo taken as the
average irrespective of the amount of varia
tion at the fourth table, and, in case the
same score Is obtained at two tables and
such score is intermediate between the re
sults at the other two tables, such score will
be taken as the average irrespective at the
amount of variation at such other two ta
bles. The match and the trick score of each
session will be kept separately, and the scores
of the two rounds added. The pair having
the highest aggregate match soore will be
declared the winners, but in case of a tie
In matoh scores the higher trick score will
be given the preference. In case of a tie for
first position In both match and trick scores
each of the pairs so tying shall be entitled
to hold the trophy for an equal portion of
the year, and may, agree between themselves
as to the order in which they shall hold it,
or determine the same by quitting

The progressive matches will be open only
to honorary and associate members of the
American Whist League, members of league
clubs and auxiliary associations, and mem
bers of the Woman's Whist League and

ated or whose partner is unable to partici
pate. Bach pair will play the same number
of deals against each of the other pairs, un
der the Howell system, unless otherwise an
nounced by the tournament committee before
the commencement of play. Scores will be
reckoned by the exponent system, computing
gains above the minimum score of each
deal; totals will be compared with the av
erage total gain, bo as to give plus and
minus trick scores. The pair making the
highest plus score will be declared the win
ner. In case of a tie for first position on
trick scores, that one of the pairs bo tying
which has the highest match score, reck
oned as in the Minneapolis trophy contest,
will be declared the winner.
A Few Regulations.
The right of contestants to use any well
known and established method of play and
any original method not given a secret,
prearranged meaning, is acknowledged;
but the American Whist League emphatic
ally disapproves of private conventions,
forbids their use in all league contests,
and defines a private convention to be
any unusual method of play based upon a
prior secret agreement.
Unless otherwise specially provided, the
number of deals to tie played in any ses-
Bion or match will be determined by the
umpire before such session or match be
gins; but, In all cases, the number will be
as near twenty-four as can conveniently
be arranged. If the umpire considers it
advisable, the match may be divided into
two or more sections, in which case the
winners in each section will be entitled to
prizes. Players tying for high scores in
progressive matches shall be considered
winners.
It is also the right of a contestant to
demand of his opponents an explanation
of their system of play at any time, ex
cept during the play of a deal, and their
duty to give such Information promptly
and fully.
Any infraction of this or any other rule
of whist etiquette adopted by the Ameri
can Whist League shall be cause for pro
test, to be followed by such penalty as.the
tournament committee or umpire shall im
pose.
It shall 'be tno duty of players after each
deal has 'been played to record their scores
and compare suoh record with the other
players at the same table; but no player
shall toe allowed to see or know any score
not made at his own table until the end of
play of the current afternoon or evening
session, unless such score is announced
by the umpire or tournament committee.
No player efoall be allowed to keep a
private or second score, or a memorandum
of any portion of the match or play or of
the state or condition thereof, or to com
municate or knowingly receive any infor
mation in regard to score or hands, until
the end of the play of the current after
noon or evening session, except such in
formation as Is announced by the umpire
or tournament committee.
Upon any violation of the foregoing rule
the player guiltjt thereof shall be disquali
fied.
The trophies will be awarded to the cus
tody of the winners, and individual sou
venirs given to the players on such teams.
Individual souvenirs will also be given to
the winners of the progressive matches.

cerning the congress and the various con
tests as is desired by delegates and others
in attendance, toy persons proposing to at
tend the congress, or by representatives of
the crees.

A 17-YEAR-OLD SAMPSQM
The subject of the accompanying half
tone is Bert Kates, of Winona, Minn.,
probably the youngest person entrusted
with the full charge of the physical de
partment of a Young Men's Christian
association, and whose physical develop
ment challenges all 17-year-olds of the
whole country for an equal. He did the
entire work of a physical director last
winter, under the supervision of his
father, the general secretary, having 120
men in four sections of his classes, re
quiring twelve class sessions weekly, and
the assistance of several class leaders.
He has perfect control of himself in any
use of heavy gymnasium apparatus, which
has been acquired in five years of per
sistent effort, in which time his weight
has Increased from seventy-four pounds
to 145 pounds. Two years ago this sum

take advantage of the affability of Sir
Open-face. True it ia that most of ue in
tended doing so on the Fourth of July,
but oiher things cast up, and as Dr. John
eon said, "Gehenna is paved with good in
tentions" anyhow. Dann Gunn said that
he dared not leave his hotel while local
patriotism was taking the shape of can
non crackers and igniting one of those in
struments of torture every two minutes in
front of his house and barn. Bert Powers
went to Duluth to a shoot; Mr. Wheaton
was one of the judges in an exciting horse
race; the old man would not, of course,
go -without Roy in attendance, and I was
too nearly over the verge of nervous pros
tration when the Day of Freedom dawned
to do anything (but stuff my ears with cot
ton and get out of the racket as soon a*
possible. I had my tackle prepared, my
lunch and minnows provided, and was
reckoning on a quiet day all by my lone
some, but reckoned -without taking the
local cannon and the local kid into suffi
cient account.
The august war department presented
the local G. A. R. post last year with an
ancient piece of ordnance locally believed
to have been taken from the Morro castle
in Santiago har<bor, which dog of war re
poses on the village "green" within a
stone's throw of Dan's hostelry. That
good man being mayor, "had forbidden the
firing of the ancient piece, and having it
under his own eye as it were, was well
assured it wouldn't be fired. But who
ever saw the executive or official who
could control the American kid on the
Fourth of July to the extent of preventing
him from murdering sleep when he could
get gunpowder and gun into conjunction?
It's a good deal of wonder that the boys
did not destroy both gun and themselves,
for the old cannon, like the armament of
the Plying Dutchman, is;
Thinnest at the breech.
And far more suitable for bustin*
Than givln' enemies a wustin'.
But, perhaps, Mr. Wheaton is
right when he says that "The devil looks
out fer his own." At any rate the boys
furnished the coroner no 'business, though
they effectually prevented the town from
sleeping after midnight on the Third.
After toeing hurled out of a dozen dozes by
the thunder of the old Spaniard, I gave it
up for a bad Jcb, got up and dressed, and
passed the rest of the night in meditation
on the cruel injustice done the memory of
Herod of Judea, but was too tired and
nerve-racked to get up enough ambition
to go fishing when day dawned at last.
But there was one gentleman, a prominent
member of the local bar, who had, who
blessed the boys for keeping him from
over sleeping, who went out to Deer Lake,
and who would have had a most elegant
time of it no doubt had he not tempted
fate by taking Pratt's boy along. Pr»tt's
boy knows every base in the lake by hie
front name, and the lawyer is too busy a
man to have acquired much knowledge of
the kind, so he, the lawyer that is,
thought it would be a wise move to take
the kid along to show him the good places.
He did show him some of them, and some
thing else besides; the 'beautiful fix a kid
can get a man into when he gives his
mind to it, to wit; and it is safe to say
that it will be a long time before Pratt's
boy and the legal gentleman go anywhere
in company again. The lawyer, by the
way, is quite a devotee of the muses, and
had promised to furnish an original poem
and deliver a patriotic address to help
along a celebration of the day at the
school house near the lake, his "turn"
coming on, or rather off, during the even
ing, when a dance and fireworks were also
the program. So you see he had planned
a very enjoyable iway of spending his
Fourth. He figured on getting out of the
noise and racket of the day, having a
good day's fishing and turning up fresh
and in good fettle for his poetical and
oratorical stunt in the evening. But lie
didn't turn up for either, and the oration
will have to remain on tap for another
year. As to the poem, Pratt's boy got a
copy of that and passed it over to me
with the comment that it '"beat the
Dutch," of the Justice of which the reader
can Judge. It is evidently an apostrophe
to the National Bird—-with a Big, Big B—
and here it is:
Go up, Old Bald-Head! You're the stuff!
Send up your war cry ringing!
Until it Jars the Pearly Gates,
And drowns the Angels' singing.
Your shadow vast o'er, tyrants cast
As David over Edom
Did cast his shoe; through gather blue
The Battle Cry of Freedom.
Peal out from Rockies' top and shake
The world with scream terrific-
One wing dipped in Atlantic* suria—
And t'other In Pacific.
Scream on, Old Bird! To Yankee ears
Your keen, atronff jubilation
Transcends the Music of the Spheres;
And out of all Creation
No voice like yours to usher in
The Birthday of the Nation.
Now a man who had just thrown such
a fit of the divine afflatus, and come out of
it alive, deserved a good day's flfching, and
he got it; but he didn't deserve what fol
lowed, and was this. When he reachod
the lake, the boys promptly hurried him
into a boat, and started down lake with
him, bound for a notable little "pug
hole," accessible by way of a small
stream from the big lake, and famous for
its monster bass. The wind was blowing
fresh and strong down-lake and the wise
kid insisted on rowing all the way, some
four miles, and allowing the lawyer to
troll. Mark the display of "head" there
in. The waves carried the boat along, all
the kid had to do was to steer, and of
course it was us to the lawyer to row
back. Well the trip was made in short
order, the bass did their part in the pug
hole, and 'ere noon the fishermen had at
least fifty pounds of as fine ones as angler
ever had right to. Then they went ashore,
players. On the track he runs fifty yards
in five and one-fifth seconds, with the
first stride longer than any subsequent
one, making almost a phenomenal Btart,
from a crouching position. Bert was an
easy winner of the short races in the Wi
nona and La Crosse athletic meets this
season. His all around development makes
him a coming man in Pentathlon games,
in which he scores well now. The di
rectors of the Y. M. C. A. will send him
to the Lake Geneva encampment, July
23 to August 22, for physical training,
where he will participate in some of the
games of the International Athletic league
of the Young Men's Christian association.
At this early age the boy is a natural
leader of men, clean of habit and liked
by all. After one more year in high
school he will enter college for a complete
course, spending his summers at Geneva,
ultimately to engage in work of the
Young Men's Christian association.
and in the cool shade of the trees fringing
the" bank, discussed the ample lunch Bose
ly, had provided. , Then the' lawyer took
a —which is where he made a mistake.
That left the kid with idle hands, and
no one to watch him, which latter func
i tion was.promptly" filled by the proverbial
; employer of idle hands, who filled the
hands in question with work at once. The
kid went out into ? the big lake, set to
trolling, hooked, a . big pickerel, and in
fighting him lost one of the oars over
board, which loss he did not discover be
fore he was out in the lake and at the
mercy of the strong wind. But the kid
was all right. „ He simply kept her head
straight, and in due time landed at the
foot of the lake, seven miles away from
the sleeping lawyer, and joined in a lit
tle celebration going on near his landing
place, as calmly as if in the habit of los
ing lawyers daily. The legal light slept
till 4 o'clock, and after vainly waking the
echoes to recall the kid, set out to fol
low the shore line to Boseley's. .
I will cut his tale of woe a deal shorter
than he found the walk. He lost the
way a dozen times; he got bogged as often;
a thunder-storm came up and drenched
him. to the skin; he didn't' reach Jack's
till midnight; found the family all away at
the school-house which was across the
lake; the dog refused to allow him to en
ter the yard till Jack returned about day
light; and he had thrown away the fish
after manfully lugging them at least half
way from the pug hole. And the bdy
says he had a fine time, "but won't go out
with no tenderfoot agin," The legal gen
tleman says nothing—but Pratt's boy still
takes the other side of the street when
he sees him coming.

A TEAR IN THE GDP
Minikahda Won, but Her Star
Golfer Met Defeat.
REV. M. D. HARDIN BEAT JAFFRAY
This Incident of the Match Served to
Soften the Bltternewi of
Defeat.
There has been, great rejoicing at the
Minikahda club ever since Saturday after
noon when the news was flashed over the
wire from Mlnnetonka beach that the com
bined Lafayette-Minnetonka Ice Yacht
Golf team had gone down in defeat before
the determined onslaught of the frequent
ers of the Calhoun links. The satisfaction
of the city club people was dampened a
bit, however, when a later bulletin an
nounced that C. T. Jaffray, the crack
player of the Minikahda club, who learned
the game on St. Andrew's historic links,
and first taught the young idea how to
"putt" in this city, was among the vic
tims.
It remained for that sturdy young golfer,
Rev. Marion D. Hardin, of Andrew Pres
byterian church, to put the banker out of
the running. Although he wielded a
brassie for the first time last season, Mr.
Hardin marched over the course like a
veteran. He addressed the ball and ap
proached the putting greens from every
conceivable angle with a neatness and dis
patch which called forth the wondering
exclamations of the gallery.
At the finish be was greeted with fran
tic applause as he moved upon a large
lemonade on the clubhouse veranda and
was straightway dubbed "Hardy" Hardin.
Mr. Jaffray took his defeat gracefully,
rotwlthstanding that he was unmercifully
"joshed" by C. S. Brackett, H. G. Thomas
and others who have felt his steel.
"Come, now, Jaff," said Mr. Brackett,"
tell us Just how it feels to be beaten. Did
you ever really think it would come to
pass?"
"And by a new player, too," chimed in
Mr. Thomas.
"Oh, what a fall was there!" remarked
Alf Pillsbury, and so it went all along
the line, the while Mr. Jaffray quietly
sipped his "lemo" and tried to look un
concerned.
In heat so enervating as to prostrate
people in the city, the oppoßing players
picked their way lightly over the course
at Minnetonka beach and seemed actually
to mind the heat less than the onlookers.
C. S. Brackett, who scorns to wear even
a cap, and in consequence is tanned an
Indian hue, maintains that golfing is ac
tually conducive to coolness and that any
kind of head dress heats the dome of
thought.
"Keep your eye on the ball," says Mr.
Brackett, "your thoughts on the game,
and let the breeze fan your heated brow.
in that case, you'll forget all about its
being hot."
The scoring was very good, considering
the high temperature and the condition of
the greens, which were rather hard. The
score: -

THE NEW T. & C. COURSE
A Try-Out Played Over the Im-
proved Grounds.
Town and Country golfers had a "try
out" on the new river links Saturday af
ternoon. The completion of the new
course was celebrated by a medal handi
cap qualification round for four prizes by
T. L. Schurmeier—32 to qualify—in
classes of 16 each. Prizes were awarded
to the winner and runner up in each six
teen, and for the best gross net scores in
the qualification rounds. There were sixty
entries. The score:
Firßt Sixteen— Gross. Handicap. Net.

The changes have lengthened the course
583 yards and it is now considered one of
the best nine-hole links in the country.
Though bogey is called 42 it should be 43.
The lengthening of the course will make
a great change in scoring. In the last
qualifying round Saturday, 90 was the
highest score; 92 was the lowest yester
day.
The Dispatch cud was won by M. Doran
and the contest for the Gordon cup Is yet
in the third round. Those still in com
petition are G. W. Gardner and N. P.
Langford, B. F. Schurmeier and C. D.
Matteson.

"Farmer" William Blum of Chicago
easily distanced all twin city competitors
in the 100-mile road race at Como Park,
Saturday. He won the time prize in five
hours and twenty seconds, and in so doing
convinced the fast locals who "went
against" him that he is the greatest road
racing rider in the country. Blum began
to draw away from the bunch when the
race was half over. He hit up such a live
ly pace that he doubled on the trail, and
had a fine burst of speed left for the
finish. Blum was the freshest man in
the running at the finish.
The red-hot weather and the still' hotter
pace put most of the starters out of the
game in its early stage. Of the forty
who started, only twelve finished.
The limit men got off at 12:45 and the
scratch men at 2 o'clock. The track fiend
got in his work early. Many riders ac
quired punctures from tacks scattered
near the pavilion in the first few laps of
the race. These tacks were long, new
ones, and meant business. A tack an inch
long put John Larson, Minneapolis' crack
road racer, out of business in the fourth
lap. He rode around on a tandem wheel,
but his class had got such a long start
on him that he withdrew from the race.
Larson had been relied upon to give Blum
the race of his life. Had the Minneapolis
man remained in the race his friends be
lieve that Blum might not have won so
easily.
Blum jumped to the fore In the twenty
fifth lap, and soon left the others in the
rear. Clements hung onto the Chicagoan's
rear wheel for a brief space and then
dropped behind. Clements was handi
capped by a tight wheel. He finally
changed mounts and rode easier. Alone
and unaided, he could not close up the
gap between him and Blum. Clements
accordingly took his time and made it a
finish fight with Harbert of Chicago for
second time, and won handily. Tom L.
Bird quit at the end of his twenty-ninth
lap.
"Cramps," said Tom, In explanation.
The St. Paul man was in advance at the
end of the twenty-fifth mile, which he
covered in 1:08:30.
R. M. Nystrum of St. Paul looked like
a place winner. He ran away from his
class, but drank too much water and the
sun got in its work.
Of the eight men who started from
scratch only three finished.
Blum says he's had enough riding to
"hold him for a while," and for that rea
son will not go after the national century
record over the Mlnnetonka course. He
frankly admitted that if he was unable to
cover the 100 miles over the level Como
course in better than five hours he atood
little chance of bettering Minneapolis
records for the 'Tonka course.
Pof almost half the race Blum and
Dempsey rode together. N. C. Hopper
and W. V. Peterson kept them close com
pany for the rest of the race. Carl John
son, a cousin of John S. Johnson, looked
like the place winner at the end of the
half-century.
Following is the standing of the riders
who finished:
First, W. J. Dempsey, St. Paul, 40 min
utes. Time, 5:18:45.
Second, Carl Johnson, Minneapolis, one
hour. Time, 5:46:50.

which were entered in the events of the in
terstate regatta at Lake Manawha have ar
rived, the last one, the Cedar Rapids men,
coming in this morning. The Sioux City, Du
buque, Ottum-wa and Council Bluffs crews
were out early for a warming up. All the
crews are quartered at the clubhouse of the

Necbe'i Hot Team Work.
Special to The Journal.
Necbe, N. D., July 15.—The Neche baseball
team played a game with Hyde Park at Hyde
Park last Friday, winning by a score of 19
to 7. The team will play Backoo at Tyner
on Wednesday next, and on Thursday will
go to Winnipeg to play the Unions of that
city, who are among the leaders in the Win
nipeg leagrue. Pembina will play, on tho
same date, St. Boniface, who head the per
centage column in the league. Excursions
will probably be run from both places. Thus
far Neche has played nine games with teams
from towns in southern Manitoba and Pem
bina county, N. D., losing one game. A chal
lenge has been issued and money put up for
a $100 game with Pembina and a $50 game
with Bathgate.
I.inton In Sore.
New York, July 15.—Tom Llnton, the Welsh
bicycle rider, has become co disgusted with
his performances in this country that he is
going home. Moran may take his place in
the circuit
To Make Henley Kioluslve.
London, July 15.—William Henry Grenfeil,
president of the Oxford University Boat Club,
has given notice that he will move a resolu
tion before the stewards of the Henley regat
ta to confine the entries at Henley to oarsmen
of the United Kingdom. His influence adds
great weight to the anti-international move
ment. The resolution will probably be moved
at an early meeting of the stewards, of whom
he is one.

WITHSTOOD THE TURK
MAHBAT FAILS TO DOWN FAIR
The Turlc Thinks He Can Best F«i»
in Longer Time and They'll
Try Again.
Mahrat Alah, "Terrible Turk" No. 2,
was "up against it" Saturday night at
a local variety theater. "It" was Fred
G. Fair of Rolla, N. D., originally from
Vermont, a new and promising star in
the wrestling firmament.
When Fair dropped Into town a few
days ago, with his manager, "Mack, the
Boy Wonder," he read the Turk* free
for-all challenge and promptly got a line
on the hefty gentleman from the aultan's
domain. Herman Smith, manager for the
Turk, didn't like Fair's physical appear
ance and endeavored to "renig," but it
was a clear case of "put up or shut up"
and Smith was forced to acquiesce.
When the "Boy Wonder" announced
that his big companion, just to be obliging,
would not bar strangle holds, the Turk
was thoroughly reassured and looked
upon Mr. Fair as easy meat. If Fair could,
stand fifteen minutes before the 270
pounds of dead weight on which the Turk
usually confidently counts to crush all
lighter adversaries in any given time,
$25 would be his portion. Fair didn't
exactly "need the money," but business
la business so he reported for duty when
the curtain was rung up at 8:15 o'clock.
Fair weighs 180 pounds stripped and
stands six feet in his stocking feet, but
he looked like a "little one" when the
Turk, with a ferocious grin approached
him. Fair easily evaded every death
grip which Mahrat Alah brought to bear
upon him, and was taking a rest behind
his opponent's huge hulk when time was
called at the quarter-hour. During the
struggle the Turk tried half and fore
arm Nelson and hammer-lock holds, but
Fair handily spun out of each position
on his head at the very moment when it
looked as though the Turk had him
"dead to rights."
Fair is a five-style wres-tler. Although
he has not received quite as much ad
vertising as some other men at the bus
iness, he has a good record back of him.
At Kalispell, Mont., he threw Moathe
twice inside of an hour, in which time
Moathe had advertised to throw Fair
thrice. He won from McCune in two
straight falls at catch-as-catch can holds
at Stevens Point, Wis. He bested Jack
O'Neill in a five-style match for tha
championship of the world, winning
in three hours and twenty minutes at
Kalispell. Frank S. Lewis of Minneapolis,
went down before Fair at Grand Forks,
N. D., for the third time in 19 minutes.
Fair threw D. A. McNally two straight at
Grand Forks. He has also thrown Billie
West, Barber and Dan Track.
The only prominent wrestlers he ha 3
not yet met are McLeod and Burns,-and
they are out of his class, being heavy
weight wrestlers. Fair says he is not
afraid to tackle anything In his class, and
has a standing challenge to that effect
The Turk thinks he can "get" Fair ali
points down by an extension of the time
limit. Arrangements have accordingly
been made for a twenty-minute go to
night. The purse is $50 a side. If Fair
can stand twenty minutes he wins the
money.
