This great race mare, daughter of Almont
and owned by Commodore Kittson, is show
ing up this year in splendid form and ; gives
indications that she will succeed before
the season is over in beating her record. She
has done so well this year the Breeders
Gazette is lead to make the following remarks
in regard to her:
"Although the trotting season of 1884 Is
not very far advanced, the work already ac
complished shows that the high standard of
previous years is to be maintained, the
meetings which have been held having been
notable for fast work, when the condition of
tracks and the cold weather is considered.
Of course the surprises thus far have been
mostly in the shape of horses that have not
hitherto acquired a reputation or record, but
some of the older campaigners are showing
themselves to be in better form than ever be
fore. This is especially true in the case
of Commodore Kittson's mare Fanny With
erspoon, that last season took a record of
2:17 in Solan's hands. It was that driver's
first experience with the flighty daughter of
Almont, and as a matter of course he did
not at once master all her peculiarities of
temperament, of which she has as many as
any trotter on the turf. Before her race at
Hartford last September she was more unre
liable, if possible, than ever before, and hav
ing tried all other plans of training her
without success, Splan determined to see
what effect a vigorous course of treatment
would have, and for this purpose gave her
an extraordinary amount of work the week
before the Hartford meeting, the result being
that she trotted one of the best races of her
life, winning the second heat in 2:17 with
ease. This convinced Splan that what she
needed was plenty of training, and pursuing
this theory he jogged her steadily all
winter, and when the time for fast work
arrived, gave her a great number of miles in
2:30. With this work in her she came to
Chicago and trotted a wonderfully good race
two weeks ago, beating Edwin Thorne in a
five-heat contest, and doing the third mile
in 2:17%, which showed plainly that the
long drives of the previous four months had
done her a world of good. Turner, who
drove Thorne in this race, was inclined to
look upon Witherspoon's performance as a
piece of luck, and publicly stated that she
would not be able to beat Thorne another
race this-season; but at Kalamazoo last Fri
day she repeated the performance, trotting
the last three heats in 2:17%, 2:19%
8:22%, Turner's horse having won
the first and second heats in 2:23%
and 2:18%. These races have not only
shown that Fanny Witherspoon is in first
class condition, but also that she is faster
this year than ever before at . this season as
when she trotted on the Chicago track in
2:17% it would have been possible for her
to have lowered these figures at least one
second, the finish being an easy one. Ed
win Thorne, on the other hand, does not
seem to be in any better fettle than last sea
son, and it is well known that his form of
ISS3 was nothing like that of the previous
year, when he lapped out Clingstone over
the Cleveland track in 2:14, having trotted
on the outside of that horse all the way."
Commodore Kittson's Rataplan.
The stables of Commodore Kittson, both
running and trotting, are rapidly coming to
the front this year. The great three-year-old,
Pauique, beat all the three-year-olds that
came against him at one mile in the Withers,
and at one mile and a half in the Belmont,
notwithstanding the great Himalaya of the
Preakness stable was pitted against him. In
the trotting circuit Pilgrim, the son of the
great Smuggler, has been running right
along, in an almost interrupted manner, and
when he has not won his defeat has not in
any wise been attributed to lack of speed.
Minnie R. is doing well, and Fan With
erspoon has been beating, without difficulty,
her old antagonist, Edwin Thorn.
The last great victory to set down to the
credit of the Kittson stables is that of
Rataplan, which occurred last Thursday at
Sheepshead Bay, New York. It was a great
day for the Kittson stable, which won over
the cracks of some of the best stables in the
land, including the Lorillard's. The skies
were bright on that day and the cool sea
breeze rendered the occasion all the more de
lightful. The beautiful day and the splended
programme brought together on that occa
sion the largest crowd that has been seen at
Sheepshead this season. There were many
ladies in the stand, and they took a lively
part in the heavy betting. The track was in
prime condition and fast. There was six
events on the cards, aU with large
fields of horses. The event of the
day -was the third race. The
Emporium stakes, and was won by Commo
dore Kittson's colt, Rataplan. The follow
ing are the conditions of the race The Em
porium stakes, a sweepstakes for three year
olds of $150 each, $75 forfeit, $5,000 added
by the association, the second to receive $1 -
000 of the added money and 20 per cent, of
the stakes, and the third $500 of the added
money and 10 per cent, of the stakes. The
starters were W. L. Scott's Simoon, Clipsiana
Statles' Landoval, G. L. Lorrillard's Econo

being in the front rank. The positions
shifted in the ran with marvelous rapidity
and frequently John K. led for a little way
soon after the start, the Knight second, En
dymion third. Then Vocalic rushed to the
front for a few strides, soon giving way to
Endjmon, the latter running well in ad
vance up to the last half-mile. The second
place was taken in the turn by Simoon. In
the lower turn, six furlongs: from the end,
•St. Savior ran up, and a furious I contest be
tween Rataplan, St. Savior and Knight of
Ellerslie began. The Knight was carrying
to.) much weight in comparison to the others"
and although he fought gallantly, he fell back
in the home stretch. In spite of all St. Sav
ior's efforts Rataplan won, with something
of speed left, by two lengths, in 2:39%; sf
Savior second,, only hall a length before Blast!
the latter having- shown a fine burst of speed
in the last quarter. Vocalic was fourth, En- -
d.vinkm fifth, John X sixth, Economy sev
enth, Pompero eighth, and- Knight of BY

winner got $6,395, the ; second horse 'Si go

Mand .$. Trots.
On Thursday litcrnoon last a large, crowd
of the admirers of fast trotting were present
at the Driving club grounds, at Morrisania,
N. V., to witness the trotting announced to
come off, and particularly to see Mr. Vander
bilt's Maud S. trot; a mile in harness driven
by Billy Blair, \ her trainer. : Two - trotting
contests were on the cards, the first for a
purse of $1,000 for horses that had never
beaten 2:35, and the other for a purse of
$1,000 for horses that had never trotted better
than 2:29. The first race had ten starters
and the second fourteen. . After the first heat
of the first trot . Mand S. was brought on the
track for a "warming up mile" previous. to
her trial of a fast one, to be trotted further
on ..In the afternoon. Maud S. trotted
this mile in 2:24 very handily, and was
then taken to her stable to be rubbed dry and
fitted for the trial of speed. Some betting
was indulged in on time. Mr. Vanderbuilt
himself made a wager with Mr. :. M.
Reilly that 2:14 would not be beaten, as he
did not believe that the marc had had work
enough to trot the track the full mile at the
top of her speed. • She came up the stretch at
a fine, steady stride and got the "go" at the
first time of asking, and went around the
first turn and down to the quarter pole with
out a skip, passing that point in 31%, and
keeping up her steady movements around
the lower turn, passed the half-mile pole in
1:04%. She ascended the hill of the back
stretch to the three-quarter pole, and made
that point in 1:38%,. and, without a skip or
break, came home on a square trot, making
the mile in 2:13%, the fastest mile ever
trotted over this track. It was the general
opinion of those who witnessed the perform
ance that, with a little more fast and bracing
work, she will be able to lower this record
three or four seconds.

brother, who is in Indianapolis, .Ind., in
which it was stated that Johnson, the great
pacer, had been given a trial in 2:16, the last
half having been done in 1:05, Johnson will
give an exhibition of his speed at Indianapo

Mr. Woodmansee says the horses are all in
good condition and gradually improving.
This was a race between the two great gen
erals of the trotting turf: Turner with Thorn c,
and Splan with Witherspoon. It was a race
worth going a hundred miles to see. In the
last heat both driversiand horses were doing
all that could be done;' to win; Turner called
on Thorne with whip,, but to no use, as it was
plain to be seen he was tiring, and Splan's
great mare Withersp oon came with her long
and steady stroke winning by a neck, both
under the whip. •-..-.-.•

won good races, and the question of su
premacy between them was brought up. The
owner of Modesty expressed a willingness to
make a match, but Mr. Baldwin declined to
give Fallen Leaf any further races until she
has filled her engagements at the -. Chicago
meeting. As both fillies will go east from

AMONG THE UNFORTUNATES.
An Hour on a Hot Sunday in the
Ramsey County Jail.
A Globe representative, seeking to escape
the torrid heat of the hottest day of the sea
son, bethought himself of the Ramsey county
jail where the thermometer marked no higher
than the seventies and fully 20 per cent, off
from the outer atmosph ere. Here he found
the number of inhabitants to consist of
thirty-eight all told, thirty-five being males
and three females, of which four were in
sane. . • ' % '.>;,„;:".'.'.''
That the Republican party were in the ma
jority among the prisoners was demonstrated
from the fact that in the north corridor they
had posted up a placard Our choice is Blame
and Logan." After the assertion of Jack
Logan at a Republican barbecue at Bellville,
111., in the Garfield campaign.'. that
the . Republican party was - "made
up of men who were',. church
members and Sabbath school teachers, and
that the Democratic party were there who
populated the jails and work-houses." This
indication of the present state of political lo
cation of the parties looked as if the charac
ter plotter of the same had been tossed the
other side up. . .
The view from the jail windows in the
second and upper stories is a very fine one
and takes in a grand out look over the . city
house tops, away out to the bluffs, carpeted
with the brightest verdure. Then again the
Streets at many points in the lower part of
the city are in sight while the view of- Cedar

The case of Amelia , Olson', the . Eighth
street "fire bug," seems to warrant that she
was insane from the first, which her actions
in the municipal court when she was bound
over to the grand jury, her conduct in the
jail and : hospital, and at her two examina
tions by physicians, have at last "confirmed.
She is a Dane, and considerable difficulty has
been had by the j authorities In j securing an
interpreter for an intelligent examination to
-determine the actual mental condition of

the -jail with wild shrieks, which kept j tired
sleepers as far off as the St. James hotel,' on

four days preceding it, she has'; cither been

Bock Camp Grounds Yesterday. -" :.,'
. The day opened at Red Rock yesterday
fair but .with, not an altogether clear
sky, and the heavy masses of clouds which
kept constantly piling up" during the fore-:

As the hours advanced the heat 1 became in
tense- and the delightful shade, and cool
breezes of the grove became refreshing and,
acceptable in the extreme.;.....' '.
The religious exercises of the day opened
.with a prayer meeting at 6 a. m. at tho tent.
The devout attended, but the . average Chris
tian finds this too early an hour to | roll out
and attend service and the.worshipping crowd
was conspicuously thin.'
As soon as the Globe arrived on the ground
it was eagerly sought for and seated here and
there in s front of: tents and cottages the
readers were to be seen. '' Much comment
was made over the edict of the management
that no papers should be sold upon Sunday,
and as the Globe was gratuitously distributed
over the grounds .it was remarked that both
the pious lay and clergy quite readily ac
cepted and read their copy. ,
' The 8:30 meeting was held in the pavil
lion, and everybody having breakfasted the
attendance was much better than at the
earlier hour. The meeting was the tradition
al love feast and was conducted by the Rev.
J. A. "Wood, of Attleboro, Vermont and was
a very interesting service, two or three peo
ple being on their feet at the same moment
and a degree of religious | enthusiasm . and
ferver evoked that must have been ' a source
of pleasure and gratification to the leader.
One very pleasant feature of this camp meet
ing is the splendid singing. Mr. H. G. Dar
row, of Centenary church, Minneapolis, pre
sides, and a double mixed quartette has been
selected from the attendants, which aid the
congregation very much, and also
Introduced some fine singing of their own.
Not only, the usual Methodist volume of
sound was evolved, but the distinguishable
presence of deep, rich and highly cultivated
voices both male and female is constantly
apparent,,.,. ' ,'" ;"~.. "•'<'•"'."'_■'-' .'•;:
At 10:30 the bell summoned the people to
the grand open air ampitheater, and gradu
ally the; benches began to fill up each quar
ter and part of the vast grounds furnishing.,
its - quota. The early trains and
boats had .by this time
increased the population of this
embryo city to quite respectable proportions
to which end also the teams from the sur
rounding country had con tributed their full
share, so that when Mr. H. G. Darrow, of
Centenary church, Minneapolis, who con
ducts the singing,announced that he desired
the entire congregation to rise and join in
singing "Jesus, Lover of My Soul," some
thing like fifteen hundred people rose before
him. - ' '• .•■ '..., ;

ditures, and desired the congregation to give
liberally when the collectors reached them.
He further stated that the directors-were
large contributors themselves to the- amount
of hundreds of dollars,' some of them, and
gave their time gratuitously. '.'':-"■'

after which Dr. Cobb called upon the friends
to be seated and directed the camp police to

'Dr. McDonald then came to the front and
announced his text which was to be found
in the seventh,cßftpter of second Corinthians
and the first verse— '' ' ■ '•' ";
"Having therefore these promises' dearly be
loved, let us cleanse ourselves of all filthiness of
the flesh and spirit perfecting holiness in the
fear of God. "■: \,- K - • .„■
, Human depravity the Dr. said consisted of
two things,. viz: diversion and perversion.
Human . thoughts and actions- when
turned aside from the divine line became
perverted. Thus self-respect when perverted
became pride.' Respect of the opinions of
others perverted'became vanity. Over all
was perverted avarice. Revenge was but
justice perverted and induced ns. to improp
erly punish others : for : what wrong they
might have done. Love perverted became
lust. All these attributes God had endowed us
with he had designed for good, but man had
perverted them. ;
The gospel proposes to restore to humanity
What they • had lost by this perversion. It
had been most truthfully said that "man. is
no stronger than his weakest point". A chain
was no stronger than its weakest link. A fort
was no stronger than its weakest side. Grace
begins this process of restoration at the heart
the very point where nature itself begins to
act. Those who reject the atonement as the
only means of salvation begin at the outside
and never reach 1, the heart. •£ Any reforma
tion that does not begin at ..the heart |is not
lasting. The heart is the moral and spiritual
fountain -head. as well as.the physical. If
the life giving blood' current tainted we
begin to'attempt its purification at the heart.
When in days of ..old the people of Jericho
came' to'- the: prophet to-xlcanse their water
which had become tmpiire'and unfit to drink,
he -' .did ■ not "*' begin "' his •'•' operations
at the extreme end of the stream, but- went
directly to the great fountain head or spring,
where he cast in the twigs and began j the
process of purification and as". a result
the whole system of their i water supply be
came pure and was pure to-day. He \ had
himself drank at that spring and, he knew
himself how-sweet and pure it was. When
God purifies a human soul.you never have to
exhort that man to cease evil. How far can
this purification go? If we take the position
that the higher life is not' attainable until
after death, we must say that God is not able
to entirely save a soul, or else that he will
not. Some say that a little, sin is necessary
to keep man humble. This is an insult to
Jehovah. God takes no interest or pleasure
in our sins. The scriptures say that man can
be cleansed from all sin. ' This .was what
mankind onght to strive for... This was what
the apostle meant in the text, "He was. not
writing to unbelievers but to the churchto
believers. We should strive to cleanse both
our bodies and : our spirits so
make us fit temples'. for '.the abode of the
holy ghost. He could not conceive how the
body of a man who used : his body for a
chimney for that filthy weed, tobacco, could
be a fit dwelling'place 'for the holy ghost.
He believed he would rather be compelled to
five in tophet, having religion, than to live
in one of the smoking cars on - our railways.
He -believed'that; this filthy: habit actually
drove* many souls from Christ. He could
not conceive of a pure mind or body in the
person of the smoker, a body that was suffi
ciently cleansed to be fit for" the indwelling
of the. holy ghost. ■ He remembered very
vividly the remarks' of. a fellow clergyman
long since dead, and now' In glory, on the
occasion of the bnrial of one of his parish
oners." : Leaning over the pulpit and stretch
ing out his hand over the casket which con
tained all that was mortal of the one that was
soon to be buried he ; said to . the bearers,
' 'Move I that body \ tenderly; for more than
forty years it has been the temple' of ;- the
holy ghost." :
.' • There was anothsr thing which Christians
ought to seek to be cleansed • from and that
.was "unholy thoughts." There was a wide
distinction, however, between "thoughts;, of
evil""and "evil thoughts," the former might
come to the best - of people \ but when they
were retained and were not at once rejected
they ••became r: "evil^thoughts"-" andia sin.
What Christians ought to do was to shut all
.thoughts of evil out and fight the enemy out
side the wall, fight him until he became an
nihilated. ; v;;;;%|«gj&S|^ ■';-.■. .':":-"■,;.-_;

The pleasant feature of this great gather

fact that the most perfect order reigned dur

large number of people evidently came more
for recreation than for worship they had the
good sense to respect the rights of the wor

Special Correspondence of the Globe.]
: Milwaukee, June 21.— most serious
event of the week has been the suspension
of the Manufacturers' bank, the announce
ment of which j was duly conveyed to - the
Globe by telegraph.." The event is serious
only in the light in which disasters to finan
cial institutions are viewed, as, if the prom
ise made by President Albert Conro is ful
filled, depositors will not lose a cent, and a,
general view of the affairs of the stranded
institution leads to the belief that dollar for
dollar will be paid all around. The bank has
not figured heavily among the financial
houses of the city, and was not a member of
the Clearing house, but during the eleven
years of its life its stability was not seriously
questioned until several months ago, when
inquiries became somewhat annoying, and
finally led to a crippling of the deposits.
This is what precipitated, the suspension.
The liabilities amount to about $400,000, and
the assets are said to aggregate $500,000.
Albert Conro, the president of the bank, is a
man of wealth. He built up a large fortune
in company with Isaac A. Hasbrouck, vice
president of the bank, in dredging docking,
and other public works.' His wealth was in
creased enormously a few years ago by an
iron mining venture, which resulted in the
discovery of ore of phenomenal richness, in
vast quantities. He has given depositors to
understand that they will not lose a
cent, and his word is accepted
as gold. Mr. Hasbrouch is also wealthy and
can see the depositors through their trouble
without seriously crippling himself. . On
Tuesday Judge Hamilton, of the circuit
court, appointed Geo. P. Sanborn receiver.
He immediately entered upon his duties,'
and will endeavor to make a statement dur
ing the early part of next week.
One of the worst incidents of the failure
was the circulations of reports that several
commercial houses were on the point of going
under. Nobody will question the fact that
many mercantile houses both here and else
where are running on uncomfortably close
margins, but it is not good policy to publish
the fact. Trade is based mainly upon con
fidence, and at times like the present, when
many firms are fighting against adverse cir
cumstances, the circulation of rumors be
comes a crime. A rumor strikes broadcast
and disturbs confidence - more than a real
failure.' It is like an enemy in the dark,
feared more than an opponent of greater
strength in broad daylight. The only failure
recorded here during the week, besides that
the bank, was that of Mrs. Sarah Terry,
who for several years has conducted a shoe
business on Grand avenue under the man
agement of C. E. Adams. ■ The assets pro
bably amount to §5,000, and the liabilities a
little more. Mr. Adams attributed the failure
to the collapse of the bank, but Cashier Can
dee says the establishment is indebted to the
SOUNDED THE DEPTHS.
'•At the Central police station, about 4
o'clock Tuesday morning, Fred W. Clark,
an old resident and at one time a respected
business man, closed his eyes forever upon
mundane scenes. Mr. Clark died poor—a
pauper, in fact—his wealth, ' his ambition,
his business capabilities.. and his character
having been sweet away by unbridled dis
sipation extending over a period of twenty
five years. The official records credit Mr.
Clark with 53 years of life (what a sad. trav
esty on life his career has been!) but his ap
pearance was that of a man almost a score
of years older. Bent, stoop-shouldered, hol
low-chested and palsied, be passed from the
scenes that knew him in youth one of the
saddest examples of ruin through whisky that
has been presented for many years. There
would be compensation even in such a life
and death if they would serve .to point an
effective moral but "the story is so old, and
the picture has been so oft-presented that
they attract but little attention. The grave
closes over the victim and the world moves
on—the virtuous clinging to virtue, the
careless courting destruction on the verge
of the abyss, and the abandoned
swiftly and surely slipping down to similar
graves. When Clark was young his bow of
promise was high and bright. He was a
brother of the late Mrs. John Davis, and for
a number of years was associated with Davis
in the management of the Davis omnibus
line and livery business. He was married to
a sister of Hamilton Townsend, of this city,
Gen. Townsend, of the regular army, and
Akerly Townsend, now post sutler at Fort
Sully, Dakota. The wedding, which was a
•brilliant social event, occurred at the Town
send family residence on the corner of Cass
and division streets (now the residence of
Bishop Welles, of the ' Protestant Episcopal
diocese of Wisconsin.) Its brilliance was
recalled in striking contrast to the sad death
of the then happy groom, Tuesday morning,
by an old settler who was one of the violin
ists of the occasion. The violinist, who is
still poor but happy, while the groom fills a
pauper's grave, contentedly moralized and
wondered what changes for the present gen
eration of rich and poor men
the coming years ' have in store.
It .■is ~ more than probable that
soon Clark's experience will be repeated in
numerous instances. " Mrs. Clark obtained a
divorce from her dissipated husband a num
ber of years ago, and died at Wanwatosa.
Several childred left ' by the unfortunate
mother were taken by relatives. Fred W.
Clark was once bookkeeper for the Milwaukee
b'eiiUmcl, when the paper was under, the man
agement of Gen. Rufus King. He was a
member of the old Milwaukee. light guard,
and went to war with the company in the
First Wisconsin J three' months volunteer
regiment. He was afterwards transferred to
the quartermaster's department at Nashville.
DR. MARTIN IN TROUBLE.
: Dr. Robert Martin, . health, officer of the
city, is In a "peck of trouble," :■ brought
about by a charge by Prof. Peckham, of the
high school, that he (Martin) ' has • violated
the statute that provides for the placarding of
houses that are infected with contagious' di
seases, by placing the placards on back doors
and in a number of instances failing to pla
card at all. Martin has virtually admitted
his delinquency, but takes refuge behind
medical opinion contrary to the efficacy Of
placarding and a number of precedents es
tablished by Dr. O. W. Right, his: predeces
sor, now. health officer at Detroit.
To ' , add to Martin's troubles
J. C. Kopmeier & Co., the ice dealers, have
brought suit against him. for damaging their
ict business by reporting to the j public; that
he (Kopmeier) was selling Milwaukee river
ice as inland lake ice, when he had not one
pound of lake ice in his houses. The whole
trouble has been brought about by Dr. Mar
tin's weakness in attempting to please every
body. ■ There Is no doubt about i his ability
and faithfulness, but there is a good deal of
doubt as to his wisdom in listening to Tom,
Dick and Harry, who pretend to be his friends.
No donbt a vigorous attempt will be made to
romove Dr. Martin, 1 but it will not be safe to
predict its success as the doctor.: has j) many
friends; besides, Prof. Peckham was a .can
didate for the position when Martin was elect
ed, and for this reason the purity of his mo-'
tive will be questioned.
ANOTHER MITCHELL BANQUET.' '- •
: Alexander Mitchell gave a reception to the
members of the Milwaukee club 'and their
guests, Tuesday evening, at the new club
house. , The affair was ; very j elaborate.. and
was thoroughly en joyed by about 300 persons,
including the elite of Milwaukee and Chicago
society. Mrs. "John ;L. ;; Mitchell did
the .honors of -! the evening, . assisted .by,
Messrs. W. Q. > Fitch, and J. -; C. -: Spencer.
The carpets in the ,' spacious parlors were
covered with canvas, j and dancing was in
dulged .in to the music of Bach's orchestra.
An elegant banquet was served In the dining
room shortly after • midnight. Mr. Mitchell

j to be absent about a week.
SKIPPED WITH THE FUNDS.
The Trades' assembly, comprising all of
the labor organizations of the city, held a
picnic at Milwaukee garden, last Sunday.
The weather was propitious, and everything
conspired to make the affair successful. The
speeches and small talk made dry throats,
and dry throats demanded irrigation with
foaming lager.. The beer money, added to
the gate receipts, gave Anton Heilig, the
treasurer of the assembly, the snug little pile
of $1,500 to care for until the following day.
His colleagues on the finance committee j es
corted him to his home on Detroit street
and agreed to meet him the next day to settle
the bills. Monday morning Heilig was
minus. After ordinary search failed to dis
cover him, the police were called to assist;
but still no Heilig. He is still missing,and is
probably in Canada beyond the pale of the
law, in such cases made and provided. The
Trades'assembly has been peculiarly unfortu
nate with its annual picnics. Last year there
was a deficit of $200 owing to bad weather,
and this year, when the assembly would have
realized between $600 and ■' $700 profit,
through Heilig's rascality it is thrown $900
in debt. There is some talk of another picnic
to cover the shortage, but as picnic profit!
are uncertain, it is thought the various
unions will apportion the loss and meet it
