World's Quad Record for
a Mile Placed at
BALD IN GREAT FORM.
The Buffalo Boy Wins All the
Class B Championship
FAST MILE BY ZIMMERMAN.
Though Out of Condition the
Champion Covers the Dis
tance in 1:57 1-4.
APP.URY PARK, N. J.. July 12— ■ As
the National meet of the L. A. W. draws
to the close the attendance increases.
Many who cared more for the races than
sociability and picnicking have waited to
make their appearance until the track
events were under way. This morning
was given over to trial heats at the ath
letic ground?, the twenty-six preliminary
events attracting an audience of fully 5000
spectators. The trials, for the most part,
■were well worth seeing and the scarcity of
accidents was as welcome as it was unex
pected. In the afternoon perfect weather
greeted the riders, and a crowd that com
pletely filled the stands and bleachers saw
a display of wonderful riding. The features
of extraordinary and unusual character
were the "quad" race, Zimmerman and
Dirnberger's trials against time and the
one-third mile handicap race between two
very small boys, Masters Louis Benner,
aged 4, and John .J. Benner, a 6-year-old.
The quad race was run against time,
each team going a mile on its own hook,
the one making the fastest trip receiving
the prize. Peter Berlo's four-seated ma
chine, manned by L. B. Cullahan, Nut
Butler, A. C. McLeod and F. Haggerty,
•went a superb mile in 1:50 3-5, a new
world's quad record. "King" Michael Dirn
berger, paced by the latter quad, estab
lished a new track and State amateur
record, riding handsomely in 2:01.
Arthur Augustus Zimmerman, the cham
pion of everywhere, rode a mile behind a
professional quad manned by Starbuck,
Cutler, Baker and Bartholomew in 1:57}.j,
the third being made in :39 1-5 and two
thirds in 1:18 1-5. This is the fastest mile
ever ridden by the only Zim in this coun
try, and considering the fact that the cham
pion is out of condition, it was wonderful
The regular racing events brought out
much enthusiasm, of which the class B
competition won the most. These events
were redhot and uncertain to the end.
The two-thirds mile open for a trip to
Europe and return was a battle royal.
Bald, Porter, Murphy, Gardiner, Coulter
and Jenney lined up at the start. At the
head of the stretch Bald was fourth and
seemed to be beaten, but Gardiner and
Coulter swung wide iv turning and the
Buffalo boy cut by them at the pole, run
ning home in a driving finish a wheel
ahead of Charley Murphy.
The half-mile National championship
was called next, with Murphy. Ziegier,
Bald and McDonald on the mark. Murphy
went ahead and stayed there until the last
turn, when Bald and McDonald Hashed by
him, with Ziegier on the outside. Down
the stretch came the two Columbia boys
abreast, straining every nerve. At the tape
McDonald made a supreme effort, and in
trying to fling himself over first raised his
front wheel clear off the ground. To many
in the stand it looked like McDonald's
race, but the judges decided on Bald as
Howard E. Raymond, ex-chairman of
the National racing board, Chicago, was
referee. The judges were: H. Robinson.
Boston ; W. H. Pitman, New York, and
D. \Y. Roberts, St. Louis.
A big surprise to many was the appear
ance in the professional event of Conn
Baker, the Modesto (Ohio) man, and I. A.
Silvie of Staten Island, who have pre
viously figured in class B. The B men
were unable to make a showing in the
money race, owing to the execrable handi
capping. Summary of trial heats:

ALLEGED ELECTIOS FRAUDS.
Illinois May Lose Its Only Democratic
CHICAGO, 111., July 12.— 1n a recent
recount of the ballots in the McGann-
Belknap election contest from the Second
District Commissioner Keenan procured
warrants for the arrest of the three judges
of the Twentieth Election District in the
First Ward. The men named in the war
rants charged with having made frandu
lent election returns are A. E. Gage,-
Republican, Andrew Buchanan and John
Ready, Democratic judges. The warrants
were immediately placed in the hands of
Inspector Fitzpatrick for service.
The recount of the Twentieth Precinct,
on which the Belknap forces placed almost
their entire confidence to win out, gave
their candidate a majority of 128 more
than shown by the official returns. With
the counting 6f the Fifth -nd Sixth Pre
cincts of the Second Ward Belknap gained
12 additional votes, giving him a majority
over McGann of 106 as far as the recount
If the contest is sustained Illinois will
not have a Democratic representative.
DENOUNCED AS BOLTERS
Carlisle Warned That He Is to
Speak Before Renegade
Chairman Smyth's Explanation of
the Split in His Party in
OMAHA, Neb., July 12.— Hon. C. J.
Smyth, chairman Democratic Central Com
mittee, sent to-night to Secretary John G.
Carlisle a letter telling him that the com
mittee had announced that Carlisle would
address a Democratic State convention at
Lincoln, September 5. Mr. Smyth as
serts that this convention is a bogus Dem
ocratic convention, and is called by bolters
who withdrew from the State convention
last year. He explains the case thus:
Omaha, July 12, 1595.
Hon. John Q. Carlisle, Secretary of the Treasury.
Washington. D. C— Dear Sir: We understand
that you have been invited to visit Nebraska
aiid deliver an address at the convention called
to meet at Lincoln on September 5 next. If you
have been led to believe that your invitation
came from the regular Democratic organiza
tion we desire to inform you that the conven
tion to be held on September 5 was not, called
by the Democratic Central Committee, but by
abolting organization formed last September
by a few delegates who withdrew from the
regular Democratic convention under these
The convention had been regularly called
and had been regularly organized; the State
Central Committee, at whose instance we now
address you, had been selected by a vote of the
convention, each county participating; the
chairman of the committee had been selected
in the same way, the platform had been
adopted in the same way, the Hon. \V. J. Bryan
had been nominated for'l'niied States Senator
in the same way, the Hon. Silas A. Holcomb
had been nominated for Governor in the same
way, when 36 of the 56t> delegates in attend
ance bolted, formed a convention, nominated
a ticket and selected a State committee, which
committee, assuming to represent the Demo
cratic party, has called the convention to
which you have been invited.
The organization formed by the colters and
presided over by Mr. Euclid Martin attempted
to have its candidates put upon the ollieial
ballot as the regular Democratic candidates,
but the Secretary of State decided that the
bolters had no right to Bpeak fur the party and
the supreme Court of this State subsequently
refusea to interfere with the Secretary's de
cision. The bolting candidates were finally
placed upon the ticket by "petition' as
'straight Democrats," while the nominees of
the regular Democratic convention were
recognized as the nominees of the Democratic
party of this State. The bolting candidate for
Governor, nominated and supported by the
Martin organization, received only about TOOO
voles— less than 4 per cent ot the total vote
He concludes by inviting Carlisle to the
regular State convention to be held at a
date soon to be fixed, and to engage in a
joint discussion of the silver question, call
ing attention to the fact that the last con
vention passed a resolution in favor of free
coinage at the ratio of 16 to 1.

the Platform of a Car.
DESMOINES, lowa, July 12.— William
Badgeley, aged 23, got on a platform of a
Rock Island train to ride across to East
Dcs Moines to-night, accompanied by an
other young man. A stranger on the plat
form, wearing no uniform, ordered them
off and they refused. The stranger then
shot Badgeley in the abdomen as he was
jumping off. " He will probably die.
The man who did the shooting was ar

the platforms clear.

CHEYENNE. Wyo., July 12.— An In
dian runner came into Fort Wasnakie on
the Sboshone reservation yesterday with
reports which were sent here by the Pros
ecuting Attorney of Fremont County of a
fight between the settlers of the Jackson
Hole region in this State and a hunting
party of Bannock Indians from the Lemhi
agency in Idaho.
The Jackson Hole region lies immedi
ately south of the Yellowstone National
Park, and has been settled but a few years.
It is the finest hunting ground in the
West, big game, such as elk, bear, moun
tain sheep ana in some seasons of the year
buffalo, being plentiful. It is a favorite
hunting field for Indians and the Crows
from Montana, the Sioux from the Dakotas
and the Bannocks from Idaho visit the
region whenever they can get an oppor
On June 29 a party of seven Bannocks
were discovered by ranchmen killing elk
in large quantities. A warrant for their
arrest under the Wyoming game laws was
sworn out and a constable and three men
from Maryvale, the only settlement in
that region, attempted to serve it. The
Bannocks, however, resisted arrest and
stood off the officer and his men with
their rifles. The officer retreated and sent
one of his men for re-enforcements. He,
with the other man, kept watch of the
Twenty settlers went to the aid of the
constable, who was keeping on the trail of
the Bannocks, who were joined by another
hunting party, increasing the number of
Indians to sixteen. The posse of settlers
came together on July 2 and preparations
fora determined fight were made. The
Indians were followed to the Fall River
basin, near the Three Tetons Mountains,
where they were surrounded and a demand
was made for their surrender.
They showed fight, firing at the scout
making the demand and attempting to
escape through a gulch. Here they were
headed off and one of them was killed.
This discouraged them and they made
signs that they were willing to surrender.
The entire party of fifteen was captured
and the dead man buried.
The County Attorney of FTemont
County, in whose district the fight oc
curred, left for JacksQn Hole yesterday
and will take charge of the case against
the Indians if he finds they were violating
the laws of the State.
END OF A TRAGIC CAREER
A Texas Firebug Sends a
Bullet Through His
Detected In an Attempt to Defraud
Insurance Companies With Saw
PARIS. Tkx., July 12.— T. A. Jackson, a
former merchant of Blossom, blew his
brains out with a revolver bullet at this
place this morning, thus ending a criminal
and tragic career.
Jackson moved to Blossom from Antler,
Ind. Ter., in March last and opened up in
the grocery business. In the course of
trade he opened up an account with Abe
Goldman & Bros., wholesale grocers of this
place. The account became past due, and
although a settlement was repeatedly re
quested it was not secured. Before the
account became due Jackson stored three
cases of cigars in the Goldman warehouse.
The Goldmans. thinkinc they were amply
secured in the cigars, did not push their
A short time ago Jackson burned out,
and, among other things, put in a claim
against the insurance company for 30,000
cigars, claimed to have gone tip in smoke
at the burning. The insurance company
thought it quite unusual for a small mer
chant to have such a large stock of cigars,
and refused to pay the claim until investi
gated. The Goldmans heard of this and
became suspicious also, and last night
opened the cases of the supposed cigars
stored with them and found them to con
tain nothing but sawdust.
Abe Goldman, the senior member of the
firm, departed for Blossom on the early
train this morning and finding Jackson
charged him with fraud. Finally Jackson
acknowledged guilt and offered to settle
the account if Goldman would not prote
cute. Goldman refused to accept his terms.
Jackson pleaded, but in vain. He then
pulled a bulldog revolver from his pocket
and attempted to murder Goldman, who
beat a hasty retreat. A friend struck the
pistol from his grasp and saved Goldman.
Then Jackson placed the pistol to his head
and fired, killing himself instantly.

Peculation* of the Bank Cashier Assume
DES MOINES, lowa, July 12.— The de
falcation of O. D. Davis, manager of the
Exchange Bank of Peru, I6wa, is worse
than supposed. Davis burned all private
papers and many more that referred to
the business of the bank before leaving.
Of course the bank officials now admit,
that he got away with $16,000 cash, and
are not certain but that it may be much
greater. Some of the outsiders say ths
Fobs is $28,000.
Davis has been a successful scoundrel
for years, and one story afloat is that he
has been married throe times. When he
left Peru he said he was going to be mar
ried, hence there was little suspicion for a
long time. There seems no hope of catch

FIRE AT USCEOLA.
Destruction in the Husiness Center of the
OSCEOLA, lowa, July 12.— Fire was dis
covered in the basement of Goldsmith's
store in the Fowler block early this morn

and the Fire Department was powerless to
handle it. Adjoining blocks were soen in
flames, and in a short time a quarter of a
block was burned over. The bank building

In the Flames.
THOMPSONVILLE, Mich., July 12.-
Forest fires are still raging north and
south of here. Wallin, the small town
five miles north that was swept by fire
yesterday, presented a desolate appearance
this morning. A Mrs. Griffin and her
three small children, wrapped in bed
clothes, were found buried in the sand in a
very precarious condition. The fire had
swept over them and scorched them se
verely. Johnnie Payne, a boy 8 years of
age, was found in the Betsy River with
the fire raging on both sides of him.
The little fellow had laid in the stream
all night. So far there has been no actual
lo?s of life reported.
The town of Cleary, which was said to
have been destroyed, is thought to be safe,
as the residents had back-fired on all sides.
Grand Rapids and Indian River officials
say the danger to other towns has not
passed, and only heavy rains can avert
enormous losses. The railway people state
there was no loss of life at Wallin.

DENVER, Colo., July 12.— The proceed
ings of the convention of the Kational
Educational Association came to a close
this evening. The morning session was
devoted to a general discussion on ''The
Instruction and Improvement of Teachers
Now at Work in the Schools" Nearly all
of the departments held sessions this after
noon. A large number of the visitors, in
stead of returning to their homes at the
close of the convention, will spend the
summer in Colorado.
At the morning session Professor Earl
Barnes of Stanford University read a paper
on "Teachers' Classes," which showed that
the difficulties come largely from the fol
lowing conditions: Difference in the de
grees of ability and training of teachers and
range of interest; the scarcity of good
leaders; the necessary differences in posi
tion and advancement, which often
lead to overwork; dissatisfaction and
jealousy. He said that when properly con
ducted classes enabled superintendents to
detect genius; to introduce the student
spirit into teachers' work ; to develop the
spirit of give and take, and give unity and
purpose to school work.
The discussion was closed by Colonel
Francis W. Parker in a warm tribute to
Superintendent W. H. Maxwell of Brook

MAT TAKE AN APPEAL.
Humored Intention of the Southern Pacific
in the Los Angeles -hand ( <»*<-.
WASHINGTON, D. C, July 12.— The
question of the ownership of several hun
dred thousand acres of land in Los Angeles
County, Cal., recently decided as belong
ing to the United States, may probably be
carried to the United States Supreme
Court on appeal by the Southern Pacific
The case involves the ownership of over
lapping grants to the Southern Pacific and
Atlantic arid Pacific railroads. The former
road, onthe ground that the Atlantic and
Pacific road was never built, took posses
sion of the lands. The courts hold that
the lands reverted to the United States.
They will probably not be opened to settle

SILVER NOT THE ISSUE.
Senator Proctor Says It Will
Not Figure in the Next
England's Course May Effect a
Great Change Before the
WASHINGTON, D. C, July 11.—Sena
tor Proctor of Vermont, who is in Wash
ington for a few days, thinks it probable
that before the National conventions meet
in 1896 the silver question will be displaced
by other issues.
"There Is time enough," he said to-day,
"for a great many things to happen before
the Presidential campaign. Great Britain
with its change in Ministry may assume a
position in regard to silver which would
make the early settlement of the question
of bimetallism almost certain. In such an
event the issue would take a secondary
place in this country. I believe th r <t the
Republican party will come out su -ugly
in favor of sound currency. That is its
historic position, and it will not follow
after new idols. While the part}' favors
an enlarged use of silver any additional
recognition given to silver must be within
the bounds of safety. We cannot imperil
the parity of the two metals so far as the
United States is concerned."
Senator Proctor thinks that in the next
Congress the Republicans will be found
doing every thine in their power to up
hold the credit of the Government and
that the Treasury Department, if in need
of relief, will not appeal to them in vain.
"Partisanship," he said, "did not dic
tate Republican action in the last Congress,
and it will not dictate it now that a certain
amount of responsibility rests with its
Senator Proctor thinks there will he no
attempt to make a general revision of the
tariff. With Cleveland in the White
House that would be impossible. He does
not think that additional revenues will be
derived from increasing the tax on beer,
which is the poor man's beverage and
already pays as high a tax as it can stand.
"The Republicans," he said, "in the last
Congress were the principal support of the
administration in all efforts to preserve the
credit of the country, and I do not think
in the next Congress it will De found that
they have suffered any loss of patriotism."
WASHINGTON. D. C, July 12.— The

against Benjamin Harrison Milliken, pri

be that the whole affair was a mistake
arising out of too much Fourth of July.
