WIN MANY TROPHIES.
Splendid Record of the
Californians at the
TWO BECORDS BROKEN,
The High Scores of Helm and
Strecker Not Touched by
ONE PRIZE NOT ANNOUNCED.
It Is Thought the Germania Award
Will Be Brought Back by
NEW YORK, N. V., July B.— Two first
prizes, one second and one third go to
California, as examples of the prowess of
her delegation to the National Sharp
shooters' Union, to say nothing of various
other prizes, the status of which will not
be determined until Wednesday; silver
festival cups, gold and silver medals won
by every member of the team ; two records
for the future annals of the National
Schuetzenfest to chronicle— Strecker's 97,
on the man, and George Helm's 75, on the
ring— besides A. H, Pape's record of seven
red flags in succession, and the tact which,
though not officially annoxinced, is pretty
well known to be accurate, that George
Helm's bullet hit Germania fair in the
center, and that the big fellow is likely to
carry the $300 first prize with his other
trophies to the folks at home, are facts
enough to convince 'the merest novice at
the game that the delegation from San
Francisco fully kept its promise to make
things hum at the first National Schuet
zenfest. and when the cannon boomed out
the token that all was over, the California
boys had reason for self-congratulation.
| The match between DorrJer and Collins,
of New York, and George Helm and
Strecker is off. To-morrow the remainder
of the team that did not go to New Haven
before will do so as guests of the Winches
ter Arms Company as follows: William
Ehrenpfort,F. 0. Young.A. H. Pape, Louis
Bendel and A. Jungblut. Mr. Ebrenpfort
will be accompanied by his daughter and
Mrs. Jungblut goes with her husband.
The best relative scores of the Califor
nians on different targets are as follows:
Standard— A. H. Pape 47, A. Strecker 46,
E. Blondau 46, D. B. Faktor4s, F. 0. Young
45. George Helm 45, F. P. Schuster 44, L.
Ring— George Helm 75, A. Strecker 73, F.
O. Young 70, L. Bendel 71. F. P. Schuster
71, D. B. Faktor 71, E. Blondau 70, A. H.
Pape 70, W. Ehrenpfort 60.
Man— A. Strecker 97, A. H. Pape 93. F.
O. Young 91, E. F. Blondau 88, D. B. Fak
tor 86, F. P. Schuster 86, S. C Bendel 83.
Columbia— F. P. Schuster 71, D. B. Faktor
68, A. H. Pape 60, A. Strecker 64, G. Helm
63, G. Alpers 60, E. Blondau 58, L. Bendel
57. F. 0. Young 55.
Young had hard lines at this target. He
made a25 on his first shot, but when get
ting ready for the second his gun went off
accidentally while pointed toward the ceil
ing, and the shooting committee kept the
fact as to whether he was to be permitted
to fire the shot over again or have it
counted a miss, under advisement for
twelve hours, and when Young went to
shoot to-day he found wind and light all
against his sighting and consequently
made a bad ticket.
The marksmen are yet praising The
Call for the correct reports of the perform
ance of Californians at the fest.
The last gun of Schuetzenfest was fired
at 7 oclock this evening, and the cannon
announcing the fact had scarcely done re
verberating when the Schuetzens shook
hands and pledged each other to their
next meeting in 1896. The shooting to-day
was average and did not disturb the
records of previous days, and aB far as
premier honors at the targets are con
cerned the positions are unchanged from
Gus Zimmerman made a determined
effort to beat A. Strpelr.T's record on the
man target, but co:i!d only reach 96, or
within one point of the Californian's
score, made on the first day of the shoot
ing, and it adds a eood deal to the merit of
Strecker's score to have held out on a
siege of eight days. Henry Holges of
Brooklyn also made 95 yesterday, so there
is a tie for second place, but according to
the rule in such cases the best ticket de
cided the tie, and Zimmerman has a ticket
of 95 to back up his. The Hoboken man,
therefore, must put up with third honors.
One first prize that goes to the Golden
Gate city carries with it the distinction of
being the only score at the tournament
which was "moglich" or the highest possi
ble. This 18 on the ring target, won by
George Helm with a full ticket of three
25's. F. C. Ross of Brooklyn and Strecker
fight out the issue for second place on 73
Premier honors on the standard re
main in New York, Gus Zimmerman, the
famous crack of the Zettler Racing Club,
having reached the best score of 49, which
was only equaled once before, by F. C.
Ross, at Chicago. There are no less than
four ties at 48 for second place, followed
by seven scores of 47 each, so that th«
committee will have their work cut oat to
decide the places.
The 47 contingent includes A. H. Pape
of San Francisco. Seven scores of 46 fol
low, credited to Strecker and Blodau of
San Francisco, Pope of Hartford, Conn.,
and J. E. Kelley of Springfield, Mass.
The coveted prize on the honor target
Columbia will also remain East, going to
Long Island on the sensational defeat of
Schuster, the Califoreia crack, by William
Vorsbach on Saturday.
Vorsbach made 72 as against Schuster's
71. James Buschfield of Lawrence, Mass.,
takes third prize.
The results on the honor target Germania
will not be known until to-morrow or next
day, as the bullseyes have to be measured
by a machine specially made for the pur
pose. None of the results have been made
known officially yet. All the prize-winners
will be officially given on Wednesday and
the prizes distributed.

COUNCIL BLUFFS, lowa, July B.—
Charles Tulen, a Dane, appeared at the
police station to-night and asked for pro
tection. It seems that he had been saying
ugly things about a neighbor's wife named
Hansen, and on his return from work to-
night overheard Mr. Hansen make threats
about taking his (Tulen's) life. He had
hardly reached his own door when he
observed a crowd following him, and Han-
Ben carrying a noosed rope, on the run. A
race then ensued in which the crowd tried
to lasso him. the rope frequently hitting
his head. Arriving at the railroad cross
ing of the Burlington he managed to
jump aboard a moving freight train, and
eventually escaped from his pursuers.
The police are investigating.

A. C. Love, the Texas forger and em

steamship Casma. He was captured in the
province of Chiriqui, traveling under the
name of Arthur Lorrain. He had passed
from Mobile through Bocas del Toro and
reached David, where he was apprehended
by the police.
What led to his arrest was the fact that
he was at rirst mistaken for a forger for
whom the police were looking, because he
was tryinjc to change creen backs into Co
lombian money. He was finally captured
aboard a sailing vessel which was leaving
Pedegral for Punta Arenas.

ADRIFT IN AN OPEN BOAT
Horrible Sufferings of a Family
Picked Up Off the
Parents and Children Delirious for
the Want of Food and
NEW YORK, N. V., July 8.-For forty
one hours Joseph Dollas, his wife, Rosie,
and two children, one 7 years and the other
11 months old, were in an open boat off
the Bermudas without food or water.
The children had become delirious ajid
the mother frantic; the father was hardly
less affected. All four had given up hope,
and were lying in an agony of hunger
and thirst and despair when the look
out on the British steamship Beallarden,
which arrived here yesterday, saw them.
Captain Davidson ordered the man at
the wheel to bear down to the little boat.
As the Beallarden drew near the officers
on the bridge could make out a red dress
flying from the masthead. As far as they
could make out there were three persons
in the craft, and all appeared to be dead.
Seated in the stern seat was the gaunt
figure of a man holding a little boy in his
arms, and beside him was a woman, with
her arms clasped over her breast, as if
shielding some object. The Beallarden
drew closer, and when half a mile from
the boat Captain Davidson ordered the
wnistle of the steamship blown, but no
attention was paid to it by the small
Suddenly the man opened his eyes. He
looked about and th^n, seeing the big
steamship, tried to ri6e, but fell back ex
hausted. "Water, for God's sake, water!"
moaned the man in the sailboat when the
Beallarden ran alongside. A bucket full
was lowered from the side of the steamship
to the deck of the little sailboat.
Then occurred a scene which brought
tears to the eyes of the Bailors on the
Beallarden. The man, before touching his
own parched lips \Hth the water, tried to
awaken his wife. Me shook her gently,
but there was no response, only a moan.
"Here's water. Rose," he said.
Still no response. Then the man
plunged his hand into the pail. He drew
back his wife's head and put a handful of
water to her lips. She opened her eyes
and smiled. She seemed to think it a
dream until her husband raised the pail to
her lips. She drank. She slaked th«
thirst of her offspring and then the hus
band drank. \\ hen Captain Davidson
asked if they were hungry the man said
they were. They were supplied with food,
and the man told his story.
His name, he said, was Joseph Dollas.
He was a Bermuda fisherman, changing
his residence from one part of the island to
another. He put all his household geods
in his twenty-foot fishing-sniack, and with
his wife and family, 21 days before, left
Bermuda. There was bad "weather, and
the Iloeie drifted from her course to the
northeast. Not a vessel came in sight.
The provisions gave out. and the four per
sons were all but dead when the BeaUar
den came in sight. July 5 the Rosie was
ICO miles east of Delaware. Mrs. Dollas
became ill; her little child was dying in
her arms when Providence sent assistance.
Captain Davidson suggested that Dollas
abandon the Rosie. This the Bermuda
skipper refused to do, saying it was all he
had in the world.
WORK OF CLEVER FORGES
Two Men Said to Have Victim

Hundreds of Bogus Contracts for
Advertising Found In Their
BUTTE, Mont., July B.— At the prelimi
nary trial of H. A. Sloan and William Mc-
Mahon here to-day on the charge of trying
to collect $85 on a forged certificate a gi
gantic forgery scheme affecting bankers
and merchants in nearly every city in the
United States was brought to light.
The two men were arrested several weeks
ago when they presented themselves at tho
First National Bank and tried to collect $85
on a contract for an advertisement in a
publication. The bank declared the signa
tures on the contract a forgery, and after
the arrest hundreds of similar contracts
were found, bearing the signatures of dif
ferent merchants and mining companies.
At the trial to-day a copy of the alleged
publication was produced and found to be
an old book with a new introductory leaf
pasted. The addrcsa of the publishing
house is given as 61 to 69 Gold street, New
York. How the men obtained the signa
tures is unknown. They have advertise
ments of firms in Chicago, St. Louis,
Omaha, Denver, Salt Lake, Spokane, San
Francisco, Helena and many other cities,
and estimated to represent over $35,000.

MODEHX WAR SALLOOXS.
Those in Germany the Latest at to
WASHINGTON, D. C, July 8.-Inter
esting accounts are given in the bulletin
on the autumn military maneuvers of 1894
in Austria, France and Germany, issued
by the military information division of
the War Department, of balloons manipu
lated by the troops in the field.
That in the German army, the bulletin
says, is the latest as to shape. The spheri
cal balloons sway and spin in the wind in
such a manner as to make it very difficult
to take observations from them. To obvi
ate this inconvenience the new form has
been devised. H is a cylinder about 60
feet long by 18 feet in diameter. Outside
the main cylinder are two conical ex
crescences, it '8 understood that this
form is more stable than the usual spheri
cal one. The device for towing and land
ing the balloon by hand consists of an iron
bar about 4 inches wide by 4 feet long. In
the middle of this on the upper side is at
tached a grooved wheel, carrying the cable.
On the lower side are fourteen rings,
through each of which a rope is passed,
leaving the ends about live feet long. It is
practicable to lead the balloon by hand
wherever a detachment of twenty-eight
men can walk.
To land the balloon without loss of gas
the lower end of the cable is made fast to
a tree or held by a squad of men. Twenty
eight men on the hand ropes then waik
towird the spot where the balloon is to be
brought down. As they march along the
cable is laid on the ground, and when they
have gpne a distance equal to the height
to which the balloon has ascended it is
landed. Written communications from
the basket are sent down th« cablo in a tin
cylinder attached to it by rings.

SEVEN NATIONAL TICKETS.

Ex-Attorney-General Garland Dis

WASHINGTON. D. C, July B.— "There
are going to be seven Presidential tickets
in the field next year," said ex- Attorney-
General Garland to-day, while discussing
the political situation. While admitting
that he is out of active politics, Mr. Gar
land feels that he still has some influence

He was recently induced to write a letter
advocating free silver, which he sent to the
recent silver convention at Memphis. He
is a rampant silver man, and predicts
there is going to be great trouble through
out the Jand if the silver question is ig
nored, as he fears it will be.
"Yes," he said, "there will be seven
Presidential tickets in the field. There
will be a nominal Democrat and a nominal
Republican ticket. There will be a bimet
allic and a single-gold-standard ticket, a
Populist ticket, a Prohibition ticket and a
Woman's rights ticket.
"The outlook is not at all encouraging for
the Democrats in any of the silver States,'
and although the convention at Kentucky
complimented Secretary Carlisle by refus
ing to adopt a free-silver platform, I will
wager 5 to 1 that the Republicans carry
that State at the coming election."
FRIENDLY TOWARD SILVER.
Governor Matthews' Views on
the Situation in In-
Declares There Is a Growl ng Senti
ment In Favor of the White
WASHINGTON, D. C, July B.—Gover
nor Claude Matthews of Indiana, a possi
ble Presidential nominee, is here. On being
asked about the silver question the Gover
nor said he believed no convention would
be held in his State as had been done in
"I have advised with different Demo
crats," he said, "and urged that this be
not done. There is a 'deep current of
friendly feeling to silver in our State, and
it is fairly holding its own. A convention,
however, seems hardly called for, because
there are no candidates to be nominated,
and a gathering of Democrats for that pur
pose would be certain to attract silver men
from Populists and other parties. An at
tempt was made to have a recent conven
tion of editors declare for silver. I talked
with several of the editors and with the
chairman of the State Committee and dis
couraged any euch action."
Governor Matthews believes that the
Democrats will take no position hostile to
silver at their next State convention. He
thinks the platform will be such as to meet
the approval of conservative men, proba
bly omitting the mention of any ratio, but
leaving that to be fixed by legislation.
The sentiment is very strontr in Indiana,
Illinois and lowa for a good Western man,
and Governor Matthews believes that some
Western candidate would b« unavoidable.
"I am grateful for the mention my
friends have made about me in that con
nection," the Governor replied, when
questioned concerning his own boom, "but
really I have not encouraged it, and have
made no plans to further my nomination:
and I do not intend to do so, for with all
modesty I can hardly place so high an
estimate on my qualifications for that

nomination were offered him he could
hardly decline it. Of the Republican can

CHICAGO. 111., July B.— Speculators on

wheat, corn, oats and provisions on the

close of the session, »howed a decline of
3% cents since Saturday afternoon. Cash
wheat is now only about 15 cents higher

NEW YORK, N. V., July B.— A special
cable dispatch from Henley to the Mail
and Express says:
Cornell's troubles are coming at an un
fortunate time, and with the first heat in
the grand challenge cup series to be de
cided to-morrow, it is unfortunate to have
to report two men on the sick list. Hager
and Fennell are not right, and there is
some anxiety about the latter, as his tem
perature reached 105 last night. In addi
tion to this, he was unable either to sleep
or eat. I am of the opinion that he is

In a letter under date of Henley, June
29, the correspondent states:
There are but two crews at Henley which
may be regarded as absolutely formidable
in the race for the grand challenge cup so
far as Cornell is concerned. One is the
Leander, composed of six Oxonians and
two Oamhridge men ; and the other is New
College of Oxford. The other crews are
thought to be mere sideshows, so far as
their chances of success are concerned. It
is only yesterday that the Ithaca eight, in
a trial over the last half of the course
from Frawley up, finished the distance in
3:30, and this when only pulling forty-two
strokes to the minute at the start and
forty-four at the finish.
In the Leander and New College trials
the stroke was generally never below
thirty-eight to the minute and was invari
ably run up to forty-two and on several
occasions to forty-four. The difference in
the American and English strokes is bow
hard the Englishmen had to row to main
tain the high motor power.
The course from Fawley to the finish,
which is given as half way, is fully five
seconds slower than the first half of the
Journey, for the reason that the water is
more shallow and the current is faster.
Cornell has gone from the start to Faw
ley in 3:22, or nine seconds better than the
New College and eleven seconds better
than Leander. Nine seconds means about
two and half boat lengths and eleven sec
onds mean three lengths. In the trial
against the Canadians Cornell went the
full course in 7:04. On another occasion.
and that without pace-making of any kind,
and on the same day that New College
made her 7:11, Cornell traveled up the
course in 7:02.
All these trials have beeH performed un
der fairly favorable conditions as regards
water. It is therefore possible to draw
conclusions and comparisons.
G. S. Franci», the manager of the Cornell
crew, was seen this evening in connection
with a rumor which reached here by way
of the United States that perhaps the
American crew would not take part in the
ranee to-morrow afternoon for the grand
challenge cup. Francis declared that the
crew never appeared in better form than it
did to-day. Hager and Fennell, the two
men who w«re ailing, are much better.
Francis added that the crew would race,
and that he believed it would either win or

Evidence That the Yacht Had
Been on a Filibustering
Appearanoe of Its Cabins Gives the
Impression That an Army Had
Camped In Them.
NEW YORK, N. V., July 8.-The steam
yacht Puzzle, formerly owned by H. B.
Claflin of this oity, arrived yesterday after
noon from Brunswick, Ga.. via Wilming
ton, N. C, after an absence of nearly a
year. The Puzzle is consigned to Flint,
Eddy & Co.
This is the craft that caused such vocifer
ous protestations of the Spanish Consul at
Brunswick, Ga. On July 2 the Puzzle
slipped out of Brunswick, in command of
Captain Avery, who is said to have been
once in the employ of the Mallory line.
She had cruising papers, so the captain
was not called upon to name his destina
tion. Her cruise from that date until her
arrival to-day is narrated by' Captain
George H. Merrifield.
" A.fter leaving Brunswick," he said, "we
stood up the coast. Off Charleston, S. C,
it blew a gale. We held on, however,
hoping to ride it out it safety. Forty miles
north of Charleston, in the toughest bit of
the gale we had, the shaft coupling broke.
There was too much wind to spread sail,
and if we anchored the chain would have
dragged us under. We were on a lee shore,
drifting fast and in a pretty tight place.
The engineer went at the shaft, and we
drifted on toward the breakers. Just at
the edge of the combers the engineer got
the shart coupled. We got out or there in
a hurry and put back to Charleston.
"When the wind moderated we put to
sea. We touched at Wilmiugton for coal.
On the way to New York nothing hap
pened to us. '
At Charleston the Puzzle was watched
by revenue officials and acentsof the Span
ish Consul, but was allowed to leave with
out molestation. What her intentions
were is a mystery.
The yacht is 96 feet over all, 15:5 beam
and 6 foot draught. Her speed is said to
be about thirteen knots an hour. She has
a crew of seven men. Her cabins, how
ever, look as though an army had camped
in them. Standing on the pier beside the
yacht are several hundred cases of ammu
nition. The watchman said they were
freight for the Mallory line, and were not
for the Puzzle. The men aboard say that
the yacht will be turned over to her own

A Wyoming Rancher Murdered by an
PIERRE, S. D., July B.— The man ar
rested at Miller Saturday under the name
of Nels Carlson and brought to this city
yesterday on suspicion of having mur
dered the real Nels Carlson, was put in jail
last night, and after teiiing a number of
contradictory stories at last broke down
and confessed to the deed.
He gives his true name as E. W. Davis
and his home Wellington, 111., where he
has no relatives nearer than uncles and
aunts. He hired to Carlson at Gillette,
Wyo., where Carlson left a bunch of horses
and much stock, which Davis was attempt
ing to dispose of while here. They came
together at a point about nftv miles west
of Fort Pierre, where the murder was com
Carlson, the murdered ruan, owned a
ranch on the Stinking Water River in
Northwest Wyoming, near Marquette
Postofflce, and has been throueh this part
of the State every summer for several years
selling horses, and last year left a herd at
Miller, which Davis had a claim for just
before his arrest. Carlson, in his visits to
this city, had made the acquaintance of and
became engaged to Miss Blanche Car
A body of men will go out from Fort
Pierre to take up the body and give it a
decent burial. The Circuit Court is now in
session at Fort Pierre, and Davis will
likely be tried this week, as all the circum
stances indicate a cold-blooded murder for
the purpose of securing Carlson's property.
Davis will probably get the full extent of

DENVER, Colo., July 8. — From esti
mates made at noon to-day of the number
of arrivals to the National Educational
Association convention it can again be
reiterated with safety that the attendance
will reach 15,000, if it does not go beyond
that figure. The railroad, reception and

Tuesday's and Wednesday's arrivals yet. to
be counted. The general sessions of the
association open at 2:30 o'clock to-morrow
afternoon in the Central Presbyterian
Church. From that time on little will be
heard about town but educators' talk.

DENVER, Colo., July B.— The attend
ance of spectators at the meetings of the
Council of Education has been increasing
each day, and this morning the discomfort
from lack of room was so great that the
afternoon session was held in the audito
rium of the Denver High School.
The reDort of the committee on normal
education was presented by the chairman,
John W. Cook, president of the Illinois
State Normal School, at Normal, 111. The
topic discussed was ''The kind and amount
of practice work and its place in the nor
mal school course." To obtain informa
tion respecting the usage of normal schools
circulars were sent to the leading institu
tions of that character in this country.
Keporls were received from sixty-three
Professor Cook's paper was a resume of
the various plans adopted, with compari
sons and conclusions. The questions of at
what time shall practice work begin and
how much of it shafl be done were the
main ones. The report recommended
practice work after a year of theoretic
work, to be carried on a part of each day.
The committee deprecated the custom of
some normal schools requiring diplomas
from high schools, which is claimed to
result in filling the normals with girls and
the schools with women teachers, the the
ory being that man's influence is as much
needed in the schools as that of woman.
The discussion was participated in by
N. C. Shaeffer of Harrisburg, Pa. ; S. G.
Williams of Ithaca, N. V. ; James M.
Green of Trenton, N. J. ; Geor.ee P. Brown
of Bloomington, 111. ; Z. Richards of Wash

BhACKBVHN CALLED OFF.
Be Will Make JVo Mort> Speeches in favor
LOUISVILLE, Ky., July 7.— Senator
Blackburn has been called off the stump in
Kentucky. He had an appointment to
speak at Carlisle to-day.
He went there and took the stand for
twelve minutes, telling why he could not
speak. Senator Blackburn is still so rabid
in favor otfree coinage that the Democratic
State Central Committee thought the in
terest of the party would be better served
if he kept out of the fight. Consequently
a letter was addressed him by Chairman
Carroll, asking him to make no speeches.'
Senator Blackburn said he had worn the
Democratic harness so long that he was
well accustomed to it, and did not think
he could work for any other party. How
ever, he said he would do as he had been
requested, and make no more speeches.

ONE IN FIVE THOUSAND
The Proportion of Bad Tempered Women
Ifl Very Small.
A famous doctor, who regards nagging as a
disease, says that one woman In fifty is more
or less afflicted, while only one In live thou-
sand is a hopeless nagger, or, in other words,
has an incorrigibly bad temper. Well, Unit is
good showing, considering: what women have
to put up with in hot weather. They work in
overheated kitchens. They are vexed with a
thousand cares, end when night comes, what
with cooking, mending', and the care of restless
children, they are utterly worn out.
The learned doctor doesn't say what sort of
medicine he gives his nagging patients. Xatur-
ally, he would not publish his prescriptions in
the newspapers. But women— and men too—
who feel the withering, blighting effect of the
torrid weather, may be assured that nothing
else than a pure stimulant like Duffy's Pure
Malt Whiskey will give them the sustained
energy and elasticity for which that standard
stimulant is famous.
Free from deleterious matter as a mountain
spring, this whiskey sharpens the appetite and
assists digestion. Possibility of danger in
drinking water and in the season's fruits and
vegetables is averted by Duffy's Pure Malt
Whiskey. Jangled nerves and a stomach in-
clined to mutiny are sources of discomfort
which cease to annoy when the entire system
is toned with Duffy's Malt Whiskey.
