FALLING BY THE WAY.
The Quincy Team Suddenly Discovers
That It Wants to be a Union
lhe Most Peculiar Play of the Season In the

North western League.
The more sanguine friends of the North
western league believed that the meeting of
Saturday in Chicago had at least removed
from the pale of doubt the existence of the
organization to the end of the season, but a
brief telegram scarcely forty-eight hours later
announces the resignation of one of there
maining six clubs, and it is easy to imagine
that at the end of this week the league will
be a thing of the past. The telegram comes |
from Quincy, HI., and is as follows: '"\V. j
D. Whitmore resigned the presidency of the
N irthwestern league to-day, aud the Quincy
cub sent in its resignation as a member of
the league. The club has made application
for admission to the Union association."
"W ■ speak without authority, but it is pre

Guano Rapids, Mich., Aug. 11. — The
Grand Rapids base ball club practically dis

games in the lead for the championship in
the Northwestern league, having won forty

join the Detroit club, as follows: Getzein,
Gastfield, Reams, Cox and Jones. They
have been released. The rest are not yet re

Chicago, Aug. 11. — Two thousand people
were present at the opening of the game be
tween the Chicago and Buffalo teams this
afternoon. The Chieagos were first at bat.
Dalrymple went out; Gore made a base hit;
Kelly bit to second baseman, who chased
Gore on a line between first and second.
Gore threw his arms around the fielder and
prevented him from throwing to first base to
put out Kelly. The umpire declared both
men out. The captain of the Chieagos de
slared the decision contrary to the rules,
molding that Kelly could not be put out for
store's wrong doing, and refused to play.
["hereupon the umpire gave the game to

| The Attitude of Grant and Conkling.
[Special Telegram to tha Ldobe. i
Washington', Aug. 11. —Politicians here
are speculating as to the probable course of
Grant aud Conkling in the coming cam
paign, and in this connection it may be in
teresting to make public tlie fact that during
the general's last visit to Washington he
called upon Mr. Blame and the two gentle
men were closeted together for
over two hours. Of course the
results of that interview can ouly
be authoritatively announced by a statement
from either of the parties present. This has
not been done, yet intimate friends of each
say that an amicable understanding was ar
rived at so far as Grant was concerned and
that he will take part when the campaign
fairly opens in New York.
Mr. Conkllng lias absolutely refused to
have anything to do with Blame or his can
vass. He is reported to have said some kind
things of Logan, who is one of his old aud
warm friends, but for Blame he has only the
bitterest and most biting sarcasm. Men of
Conkling's temperament are apt to allow
their enmities to more than counterbalance
their friendship and in the present instance
Lord Roscoc has evidently given Logan to
understand that his love for him will not
affect his knifing Blame. Coukling is rather
inclined to favor Butler's candidacy. They
are men who thin' dike on many questions
and tiic bonds ol personal friendship have
been cemented even stronger than ever since
Conkllng made bis inglorious retreat from the
senate to his law practice. It is not among
the impossibilities, therefore before the
campaign is over Conkllng wiß give utter
ance to Lis feelings, which will be beyond
the pale of misconstruction.

THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 12, 1884.
It Begins to be Humored That the
Plumed Knight Expects to be
With the Germans, Prohibitionists, Work
ingmen ami Irishmen Doubtful
Things are Mixed.
[Special Telegram to the Globe. |
Ns-:w Yonic, Aug. 11. — A special to the Sun
from Washington says: Blame is causing
those who arc managing his canvass no lit
tle anxiety. He is no longer the dashing
and audacious Plumed Knight of 1876. He
is a changed man. Though always the most
cautious and secretive of men, he
used to conceal these traits by au assumption
of dash and pluck that was a most artistic as
well as long sustained piece, of acting. Now,
however, his friends find that his brilliant
aggressiveness is gone. He seems to be not
only timid but almost indifferent. If he has
any great interest in the approaching canvass
he does not reveal it. He simply urges his
friends to go on with the canvass in their
own way and let him be at peace so far as
possible. That was not at all what the ener
getic Elkins aud the diplomatic
Phelps expected when they procured his
nomination. They looked forau abundance
of brilliant suggestions and the proposition
of some audacious and overwhelming line of
policy for carrying on the canvass from the
candidate, but Blame has, so far,
seriously disappointed them. The Piumed
Knight has already received a great deal of
information touchiugthe political situation
and he thinks it justifies his despondency.
He claims, at all events, that his political
forecasts last winter were correct, and that
the country has entered upon a canvass that
will be unique, and will show some un
expected results, which the wisest men can
not now predict. ; I
While Bluine has no such organized force
of clerks, letter openers and assistants as
were at Mentor iv ISSO, yet he has a bright
aud energetic son, a diligent secretary, and
through them a great deal of correspondence
is conducted. The news that has already come
to Augusta agrees in the main with that re
ceived by the National committee. It is far
from cheering, though it is not thought by
Blame's friends to justify his own gloom,
and, while they do not share it, they are
very anxious about some of the states
that have been counted surely
Republican. Unless there be a change of
sentiment in these states before November
the party is iv very serious danger of losing
some of them, and it 's certain to lose others.
The committees have not failed to take notice
that the western Germans, prohibitionists,
labor and Irish-American voters, indepen
dent Republicans and Gen. Butler are to
elect the next president, unless, in fact, the
bouse of representatives does, a contingency
which some regard as far from impossible.
There is not such a fiery and overwhelm
ing desire that Blame shall go to the
White House as there was in 1876.
This is precisely what Blame saw to be the
case last winter. lie knew bis heyday was
in 1870, and that since then his popularity
lias moved like that of all politicians who
have passed their day. All the flattery of
the men who sought him last winter could
not dissuade him from that belief. Blame
last winter said tbe rank and file of the two
parties would not decide the battle, but the
deserters would, and lie kaew his candidacy
would result in a large number of deser
Bluine,, himself, regards the choice of
Cleveland as an unwise one for the Demo
cratic party, yet he thinks that in spite of
the bad nomination that desertions are going
to be great enough in some states now re
garded as surely Republican, to cost the
party those states. The Republican man
agers, both tho national congressional com
mittee are in despair. Reports confirm tbe
suspicion of some shrewd politicians who
were at the Chicago convention that the Blame
enthusiasm was not genuine, but was man
ufactured to a great degree, if not to some

A Darin? Attempt to Escape.
St. Louis, Mo. Aug. 11. — A noted crimi
nal came very near training his liberty here
this afternoon, if not entirely escaping the
clutches of the law. The friends of Geo.
Vincent, the notorious English forger, who
has been in jail since last February when he
attempted to swindle a bank here, appar
ently taking advantage of the fact that a tem
porary judge was presiding over the criminal
court, presented bail for #6,000 aud asked
Vincent's release. The judge, believing the
security to be ail right accepted the bond and
ordered the release of the prisoner. But the
suspicion of the chief of police being raised
he made a hasty examination of the matter
and discovered the man offered as security
was irresponsible, therefore the bond was
worthless, and just as Vincent was walking
down the steps of the court on his way
to freedom he was nabbed and returned to

THE MIRACULOUS FISH POND.
It was a couple of months or so before the
beginning of an exceedinglgdull season that
Mr. Julius B. Korner first made his appear
ance in London, and he speedily became
both an interesting and a popular member
of society. He was universally supposed to
be of fabulous wealth — a fact all the better
established because Mr. Korner never di
rectly alluded to it. He lived in a small, but
perfectly appointed house in Mayfair, gave
admirable dinners, drove first-rate horses,
and did all that could reasonably be expected
of an unostentatious millionaire. Mr. Kor
ner was a widower, with two very attractive
daughters, Stella and Sophie, and it was
commonly reported that these young ladies
would receive very handsome marriage por
tions from their indulgent father.
It was uot, perhaps, surprising, that so at
tractive a family should be much sought
after, and within a very few weeks of their
arrival tbe Korners found themselves over
whelmed with invitations.
Among the most intimate of their friends
was a certain Lady Rubicon, a bustling,
lively matron with a somewhat impecunious
husband aud a large family. Lord and Lady
Rubicon were in tbe habit of making fre
quent trips to America, where his lordship
owned a cattle ran eh aud several drinking
saloons; and it was on the return voyage
from one of these excursions that they had
made the acquaintance of the Korners.
On board an Atlantic steamer friendship
ripens quickly, and it was in great measure
owing to Lady Rubicon's good offices that
the American family had been so well re
ceived in London. The Korners were grate
ful, and Lady Rubicon was fully disposed to
take advantage of her position. She had al
most given up the idea of securing Korner
himself for her eldest daughter, but she was
determined that her scapegrace son should
marry one of the girls. As the Hon. Humph
rey Pique was on the point of leaving the
Guards, owing to hopeless impecuniosity,
there was not much time to be lost, so ho
danced attendance ou Mis 3 Stella with unre
mitting diligence, while his mother lost no
chance of aiding in his suit. One day Lady
Rubicon came around to the house in May
fair, and with an air of great importance
asked to see Mr. Korner alone.
'•You shall know all about it pretty soon,
my dears," she remarked to the girls, "but
your father and I must have a talk first."
Mr. Korner knew that Lady Rubicon had a
favorite weakness of making mysteries out
of nothing, so he rose and courteously led
the way to the library.
"My dear Mr. Korner," said the matron,
"we have such a delightful scheme on hand,
and you must help in it!"
"I shall be only too pleased," answered
the imperturbable Koruer. "But may I ask
what is the scheme, aud who are 'we J' "
"Oh, 'we' are everybody — everybody that
is, who is anybody; and we are going to have
a fancy fair for the benefit of the Hospital
for the diseases of the eyebrow."
Mr. Korner looked a little mystified. "A
fancy fair?" he repeated.
"Oh, I forgot you had been so short a time
iv England! There will be stalls, you know
and people dressed iv fancy costumes will
sell things, and we are going to have au old
English street and a Turkish bazaar, and all
sorts of things, including the Mahdl's camp.
lam sure you would look delighful as the
Malidi, with a black beard aud a blanket."
Mr. Korner passed his hand meditatively
arrpss-hls chin. "If ever I dressed myself
forshow I am afraid I should have to choose
something a little less attractive," he said.
"By no means. You shall choose your
own costume ; but you really must help us,
you and the girls. You will, won't you!"
"I eau deny you nothing," said Mr. Kor
ner, with an air of old-fashioned courtesy he
was rather fond of assuming. "And I have
no doubt that my daughters will be charm
Lady Rubicon expressed her thanks in fer
vent terms, and so the matter was settled.
Stella and Sophie were delighted with the
idea, and the Korner family were duly en
rolled upon the aristocratic staff of assistants
at tbe fancy fair for the benefit of the Hospi
tal for diseases of tbe eyebrow. Mr. Korner
himself consented to become a member of
the managing committee.
The Albert Hall was, of course, engaged
for the occasion ; the patronage of royalty
was asked for and graciously accorded; the
prime minister, the home secretary, and
other distinguished personages promised to
attend, and the Hon. Humphrey Pique, with
great good uature, volunteered to become
honorary secretary and look after the funds.
Tbe committee devoted long and anxious
thought to the allotmentof the various duties
of the assistants, male and female. There
were all sorts of prejudices to soothe, and
litt le jealousies to mollify. All the best-look
ing women bad to be selected to serve as re
freshment stall-keepers and venders of but
ton holes and cigars, and the choice was the
cause of terrible bickerings and heartburn
ings. The Duchess of Colpos. a fine woman,
but somewhat overburdened with superfluous
flesh, insisted upon being allowed U> peram
bulate the hall arrayed as a flower girl, while
Lady Victoria Vespa threatened to withdraw
her name unless she were permitted to de
vote her undeniably fine teeth to the con
genial tflek of biting off the ends of cigars.
But Lady Rubicon and her colleagues tri
um phantiy overcame every difficulty, and
the fair promised to be a huge success. Of
course, the Korners were consulted at an
early period as to the precise p»rt they wished
to take in the proceediucs. Mr. Koruer said
he was profoundly indifferent; he left all
these things in the bands of his daughters;
Stella was a clever girl and was certain to
suggest something. She soon decided, for
the next time Lady Rubicon called she an
nounced that tbey were going to keep a fish
"Charming," cried Lady Rubicon, "I
know what you mean. You put a lot of par
cels in a sort of inclosed place, aud people
have little fishing-rods and angle for the par
cels with hooks. lam sure that will be de
"Yes, that Is exactly what I mean," re
plied Stella. "I think it really ought to be
great fun. - '
"I am sure it will: and what are you go
ring to put inside the parcels, dear?"
"Ob. sweets, or toys, or scent, or pome
thing. But yon must not be too inquisitive,
Laly Rubicon : papa is going to take thd fish
pond in hand, and he is sure to contrive
something interesting and original.'' At that
moment the millionaire himself entered the
"We were talking of the fish pond, Mr.
Korner,"' said Lady Rubicon. "I hear that
you arc going to invent some wonderful
novelty for It."
"Scarcely that, Lady Rubicon'" answered
Mr. Korner, with his usual quiet smile and a
deprecatory wave of the band: "but I dare
say that I shall be able to find out something
to amuse those who fish. I have hardly
thought of lt, however, myself yet."
"I am certain that is a wonderfully clever
man." mused Lady Rubicon, as she drove
homewards. "He will make a great noise
in the world some day. So handsome and
distinguished, too. His daughters are a diff
erent style of beauty ; I suppose tbey take
after their mother. ' '
About a week before the opening day of
the fair, Mr. Korner ran over to Paris. It
was noticed that be had been very busy and
preoccupied of late : he bad been seen but
little in tbe park, and seemed to spend most
of bis time in a sort of studio at tbe back of
his house. His daughters explained that be
had a good deal of business on hand just
then, and that he was, moreover, deeply ab
sorbed in scheming some really surprising
novelties for the fish pond.
"It is so good of your father to take so
much trouble when be bas other matters to
attend to!" said Lady Rubicon to Stella.
"Papa likes being busy," answered that
yonng lady. "He left for Paris last night,
where he has gone about the things for the
"Really! And when do you expect him
"To-morrow or the day after. I think he
will bring tbem with bim."
"Do you know, dear. I am perfectly dying
of curiosity about that fl»h nond. TWm't -an
think you could tell me what Is going to be
put in "it?"
"My dear lady Rubicon," laughed Stella,
"to tell the truth, I don't even know my
"What a mysterious man your father must
be," sighed her ladyship.
Mr. Korner returned to London a couple of
days later, aud lost no time in acquainting
Lady Rubicon with the fact. He told her
that he had been eminently successful in
his mission; that, after much anxious cogi
tation, he had arranged something alto
gether marvelous aud sensational for the
fish pond; and that, with the aid of an astute
shopman from the Palais Royal, he had car
ried out his idea In a very perfect manner
indeed. In fact he authorized her to add a
couple of lines to the latest edition of posters
and circulars, announcing that the flsh pond
would be the greatest attraction of the entire
fair, and guaranteeing no oue who spent ten
shillings for the U9e of a rod would ever re
gret bis or her labor or money.
Of course, Lady Rubicon would not con
fess that she knew as little about Mr. Kor
nea'c real Intentions as the rest of the
world. She informed all her acquaintances
that she and the Hon. Humphrey had been
initiated into the mystery under inviolable
vows of secrecy, and hinted that Mr. Korner
had carried out his design in accordance
with a suggestion of her own.
One condition only Mr. Korner insisted
upon, which Lady Rubicon and the commit
tee considered on reflection to be extremely
reasonable and proper, and that was that
each person who secured one of the mysteri
ous parcels should solemnly promise not to
open and examine his or her prize before
"You will at once see, Lady Rubicon,"
said Mr. Korner, smiling, "that this is abso
lutely necessary. If peoplo are allowed to
open the parcels in the hall there will be an
end at once to the mystery."
Her ladyship of course saw the necessity,
and was more than ever impressed with the
astuteness of the millionaire. Tho evening
before the fair was opened, Mr. Korner him
self drove down to the Albert Hall, and was
shortly followed by a very large van which
contained the parcels for the Miraculous flsh
Lady Rubicon and he had fixed an hour
when every one except a few workmen bad
left the building, and the operation of ar
ranging the packages in their "pond" was
performed in the absence of all responsible
individuals except her ladyship and the Hon.
Humphrey. Mr. Korner was very careful
about his parcels. He explained that many
of them contained glass, and required cau
tious handling, and he superintended the
entire operation in person.
"You and the .girls will be here early to
morrow morning won't you'?" she said, as
she bade goodnight to the American.
"Certainly, we are always punctual." And
he left her charmed with his cou rtesy.
The next morning was bright and fine.
Lady Rubicon was early astir, and eagerly
opened her letters to see if any of her friends
were going to desert her at the fair. Much
to her disgust she read the following:
My Deah Lady Rubicok — I am truly
sorry to be obliged to be absent from the
fair to-morrow. Important business de
mands my presence in Paris, and I am start
ing by the night boat. Wishing you every
success, to whi2h I trust the flsh pond will
contribute, with profound regret, believe me
Yours, very sincerely,
J. B. Korner.
"How very annoying," ejaculated Lady
Rubicon; "but the girls will be there. I
really must make Humphrey come to the
point with Stella."
Misfortunes never come singly, as Lady
Rubicon discovered, for when she got to the
hall a couple of hours later she found a tele
gram from Miss Korner saying that she and
her sister had been summoned to Devon
shire to the bedside of a dying aunt.
"Was there ever anything quite so annoy
ing?" exclaimed Lady Rubicon. I never
even knew they had au aunt in Devonshire.
It is really most provoking."
However, there wits no help for it, and as
soon as the Hon. Humphrey made his ap
pearance his mother explained to him that
lie must act as showman of the fish pond,
describe its manifold attractions to the
crowd, and descant eloquently upou tho
treasures which the generous millionaire bad
scattered broadcast among the paper parcels.
"You must talk as if you knew all about
it, you know, Humphrey. Everybody thinks
we are in the secret, so it will never do to
confess our ignorance," added his mother,
Like a dutiful son, Mr. Pique consented,
and wis soon busily engaged in his arduous
duties. Among his earliest customers hap
pened to be Lady Harcourt herself. She
angled successfully, and landed a small but
substantial parcel. "You mustn't open it
here, you know," said the Hou. Humphrey,
"Dear me, what a pity," said her lady
ship. "Well, I will take it home and show
it to Sir William ; he likes mysteries." Her
ladyship's example was followed by hun
dreds of other visitors; in fact, as had been
expected, the fish pond was the great attrac
Four o'clock came and the fair was in full
swing; the stalls were doing a roaring trade;
the duchess had sold innumerable button
holes; Lady Victoria's teeth positively ached
from biting cigars :all the prettiest women in
London were perambulating the ball, dress
ed in more or less outrageous costumbe nnd
flirting impartially with peers and shopboys
in the sacred cause of charity. The Hon.
Humphrey, gorgeously arrayed in green
plush and silk stockings, had shouted him
self hoarse at the fish pond, half-sovrcigns
were pouring in upon him, and a regular
queue of people were waiting for their turn
to angle for one of the milllonair's wonder
ful presents. Just when the fun was at Its
height a couple of footmen in livery elbowed
their way unceremoniously through the
crowd and seized the Hon. Humphrey by
"What's the matter?" ejaculated that
young gentleman, dropping his eye-glasses
and staring in astonishment at bis assail
One man leaned forward and whispered a
word in the Hon. Humphrey's ear. The ef
fect upon that scion of nobility was electri
cal. His face turned ghastly pale, his jaw
fell, he cast a terrified glance toward the lish
pond, and then made a violent plunge for
'•Gently, sir, gently," said the man,
"Let me get out! good heavens, let me
get out!" screamed the Hon. Humphrey.
"Not just yet, sir," replied bis tormentor.
"Tell 'em the ball must be cleared at once,"
be added to bis companion in a low voice,
and then came to pasa a most remarkable
phenomenon. Policemen seemed to spring
up in every direction. In two minutes a
line was formed around the fish pond, and
tbe crowd was politely but firmly told that
must at once disperse. At first there was a
certain amount of angry remonstrance, and
even of forcible opposition ; but somehow or
other a mysterious word began to be whis
pered about which bad a miraculous effect in
disarming all resistance. With one consent
everybody turned tail and fled. Flower girls,
peasants, Watteau shepherdesses, Spanish
gypsies, eighteenth century courtiers, actors
and actresses, singers, musicians, perform
ers of every description, joined with the
struggling mob of ordinary humanity in a
mad rush for the doors. Even when safe
outside uo one thought of stopping. En
tirely regardless of their eccentric costumes,
tbey bolted wildly in every direction, and
several stout old ladies and gouty old gen
tlemen ran at least a half a mile or more
without pausing to recover their breath or to
ask for further particulars.
In Kensington Gore thoae persons who
were not senseless from terror beard leather,
lunged newsboys bellowing, "Spechul edee
shun," ''"Orrible attempt to assaseioate the
'Orae Secretary," "Discovery of infernal
machines!" and on buying s paper read the
following startling announcement:
"This morning Lady Harcourt attended
tbe fancy fair at the Albert Hall, and upon
returning home .«hc- brought with her a small
sealed parcel, which it seems she bad pur
i-based there. It was opened in the presence
of Sir William Harcourt, and turned out to
be an infernal machine, constructed with
diabolical ingenuity, which bad only failed
to explode by a miracle. Four private de
tectives, who are always in attendance on
tbe Home Secretary, disguised as footmen,
at once proceeded to tbe Albert Hal! to in
