A TOUGH CUSTOMER.
Jack O'Brien Tries to '; Escape
From a Police Officer.
Jack O'Brien, the notorious strong
arm man, who is wanted for an assault
committed upon Clans 11. Anderson a
few nights since, was caught last night,
but before he was rounded up he made
things decidedly interesting -- for a por
tion of the police department. O'Brien
wes arrested shortly after 7 o'clock at
the union depot by Officer Will
iam Keese, who knew that there
was a warrant out for him
for the assault upon Anderson. Officer
Keese started up Nicollet avenue with
his prisoner, but at the corner of First
street there was a hitch in the proceed
ings. O'Brien suddenly dropped a bot
tle which he had been cairying and
striking the officer, who is much, the
smaller man, bolted down First street.
As soon as Reese could recover Himself
he gave chase, and finding that he
could not overtake O'Brien fired
four shots in the air. O'Brien
ran down First street to Second av
enue south, where he dodged into an
alley and hid in a shed in the rear ot
Ida Dorsey's house of prostitution. The
shots fired by .Reese were heard by sev
eral other officers who joined in the
chase, and O'Brien was finally pulled
from his hiding place and taken to the
lockup by Officer Frank Howes, con
ductor of the Central station patrol
wagon. When O'Brien was arrested he
■was very much excited from having
been, as he supposed, made a target of,
and it was some time before he could
regain his composure.
FATE OF THE T. C. A. C.
An Effort Will Be Made to Reviv
ify the Corpse.
The fate of the Twin City Athletic
club is what is agitating the minds of
those gentlemen who love sport. The
club is not in the race just at .present.
An attempt will be made to put it on
its feet again. Just what will
be done, or what will be sug
gested as a good scheme for
reviving the drooping spirits of the or
ganization,is not known yet. The club
has always eked out a very precarious
existence indeed. It has never been on
the broad road to prosperity. Early in
its history it seemed to be doing right
well, but soon fell away. The manage
ment of it has always had the wrong
idea of how it should be conducted. It has
tried and tried repeatedly to harmonize
several inharmonious elements.elenients
that will no more mix than the pure,
unadulterated tide of the Mississippi
will mix with the oleaginous product of
the rendering works. Such attempts
never have been a success wherever
tried, arid Minneapolis is not so different
from the cities of the earth that they
will be ago hero. It is possible, even
probable, that a good athletic club con
ducted oil the proper principle and as an
athletic club, not as a feeding (round
for the creatures that prey upon society,
could he made a success in Minneapolis.
This city is a good field for legitimate
sport. The lovers of sport hope to see
the club put upon a solid basis.
The club is now in the hands of the
assignee, who has not quite one handful
at that. A half-dozen men have been
talked of as manager, but nothing defin
ite has been done yet. One report has
it that Henry Seelye will be the man
ager under the reorganization. The
affairs of the club are practically in the
hands of Col. John T. West, and who
ever he says will be manager will be
First Warders Do Not Want Their
Children to Go to School in the
The citizens of the Ninth ward have
raised a protest to the regulation of the
3chool board which requires their chil
dren to go to school in the First ward. ;
Formerly Adams street was the
boundary line between the Webster
school district, which lies in the Ninth
ward, and the Everett district, located
in the First ward. For some reason
the dividing line was changed to
Jefferson street, and among the
fervent appeals last spring were
several for a restoration of the Adams
street boundary, which is regarded as a
much more equitable one for the Web
ster school. As one of the consequences
— or results -of the change in boundary,
pupils in the higher grades in the Web
ster school have been shifted into the
Everett without any other apparent rea
son than a desire to swell the enroll
ment of the latter, so as to give color to
the demand for more annexes.
On Saturday evening a well attended
meeting was held in Hagen's hall, 017
Monroe street, George W. Coburn pre
siding. Ex-Aid. Comstock, Robert Ir
win and J. C. Young were appointed to
confer with the school board with a
view to having the boundary lines

Heavy Traffic May Be Allowed for

The special committee of the park
boord, appointed to determine the ques
tion of allowing heavy travel on lien
nepin boulevard, held a rather lively
session on Saturday, and, after a thor
ough discussion of the subject, decided
to recommend that heavy traffic be per
mitted on Hennepin avenue until Irving
avenue is opened for travel, providing
that be not more than sixty days from
date, and that at the end of that time a
new ordinance covering this point be
drafted and put into operation. The
committee consists of President Bauzan,
Commissioners Folwell, Dahn, Brown
and Ridgway, and President Haugau
was the only one absent from the meet
ing. Ex-Mayor Babb, E. P. Capen, oi
the Boston Ice company, and J. Shep

favor of the opening of the avenue tc
general traffic, while Daniel Bassett. F.
Mearkle, K. G. Bashart and W. F. For

HE THOUGHT IN ROME
And Last Night Rev. William
Wilkinson Told What He
Rev. H. M. Simmons Talks
About the Narrow-Minded
Rev. H. H. French and Sarah
How a Smooth Young* Man
In St. Andrew's church last night
Key. William Wilkinson gave a talk on
home as he saw it iv July last. The
speaker said the Romans, like all great
people, have left behind them marks of
their peculiar characteristics, and their
singular history, both in church and
state, has made them, whether of love
or hate, of an admiration which is ready
to sacrifice everything in its interests,
or a fear which watches with astute
alertness every move made by the lead
ers in the glorious city. No part of the
world outside of Eden, Bethelehem and
Calvary have called forth such inter
est. There is no sign that Koine
will in the future be less noted
than in the past. That she is destined
to play a most important part in the his
tory of the world, is a fact which every
man of thought and knowledge must
"I speak to-night," he said, "not of
the mighty men who in Kome to-day are
busy in honest work, as they believe,
for the good of men and the glory of
God. That I reserve for another time.
1 speak of the places of world-wide
renown, and as one by one they are
named, if you know anything of their
history, what mighty visions of departed
glory spring to your minds, of the pomp
of voluptioiis ages, the fire of dauntless
courage, the dispair of men whose hope
deferred made their hearts sick! As
we think of the Coliseum what magic
there is in that one word to bring to
us tidings of the hoary past! We
go back to the days of its foundation,
and know that the people demanded its
erection, for such magnificent struct
ures do not come into being without a
cause. And we see the sturdy design
ers at work on their plans in discussion
of two forces, push and pull, tor in all
their incidence and effect they are to be
seen here; and as we stand in the
moonlight or m the noonday back
comes the gladiator in the Hush of
earnest desire to gain a momentary
cheer and applause. From the hundred
thousand Romans assembled to see the
fights in this Coliseum thousands of
the bravest men Italy ever had came to
their death. In the arena, here could
be seen for a hundred days in succes
sion scenes which in their horrible
ness have no equal in the cruel
sports of Spain. It was here that hun
dreds of Christian people came to their
deaths by wild beats. The shouts of
the victors, the groans of the dying,
the gay courtesan crowds who, ever
ready for some new atrocity, visited
with eager mind the Coliseum, bear
to this day testimony to the kind of peo
ple the ancient Romans were. Yet
they could not be called ignorant, for if
they had few advantages, as we reckon,
amongst them lived in intellect god
like men, as the building shows. It has
some of the best work, competent
judges say, in it, of all schools of
architectures. To this day it is, by
architects, studied with patient care. Its
magnitude may be imagined when
it is remembered that it is over 000 feet
across, and that its walls are 100 feet
high, and that it could accommodate
over 102,000 people. It will yet stand
for ages a monument of cultured archi
tectural power with the depraved tastes
of a great people. Near to it is the im
perial palace of the Ciesars in ruins.
We can, in the light of these two ruins
alone, the Coliseum and the palace,
see how it became possible for
GOTH AND VAXDAI.
hordes to overthrow Rome. The things
they stand for have no constructive,
conserving power, in so far as society,
trade, work, progress are concerned.
All history cannot produce one great
creation whose place has been abid
ing in the nations where the two
most prominent ideas have been
gratification in cruelty and splendors
in regal conquest of abject people, so to
every observant mind in Kome to all
time the Coliseum and the palace
stand not as stars to light the natives on
their way, but as desperate warnings
against cruelty and pride, against an
aristocracy of luxury and a plebian
class little better circumstanced than
slaves. At the back of the imperial
palace of the Ctesars runs the old Ap
pian way. It is more than 350 miles
long and goes to Brindesi. Up this
road have come the conquering hosts,
and in a degradation which has no
equal i:: military lite have trod men
whose chief blame was that they re
sisted haughty aggression. "The
tyrant of their fields withstood,"
ouly to be starved to death in
vile prisons. It was on this
way the great St. Paul came. Despised
by lictor, jeered by jester, scorned by
philosopher, led to a prison in which I
have stood. Whose heart does not
thrill as his life is thus called up from
the ancient past? Mightier than Ceasar
or Ciadius, he has glorified the cell in
which he was placed, and because of
his history the place of his imprison
ment is glorified. An altar Is built
there, and mass is daily said. Such
changes and corrections do the whirli
gig of time bring happily for the
righteous who are oppressed with
wrong. St. Paul, in rjersou. is mightier
than his persecutors. Any day of the
year can be seen men and women who
have taken time and spent treasures to
look upon spots like this. We then
journeyed to the Pantheon, in it we
waked up and wondered. It has no win
dows and it is lit from the top. A circle
is left tor light. Since t\vent3 r -seven
years before Christ it has stood. It was
dedicated to all the gods. The men of
that time who surrounded Atrgripa did
not want to be exclusive. If Christ had
come and said: "(live me a place in
your Pantheon. You are right; all re
ligions are of equal value: do not be par
ticular, have a good time, all will end
well"— you would not have had the story
of His crucifixion. Here in this circu
lar Pantheon are enshrined memories
of principles which have Held half the
world in subjection. As you stand upon
its marble pavement, which the rain has
pelted for nearly two thousand years,
you are in a place which has been held
sacred by warrior, by poet and seer.
The apostles often stood on this his
toric floor. Their hearts were moved to
flame, in pity for the superstition of the
heathen and with love tor the noble re
ligion they had to show to the children
of men. Let us not mock those who, in
days of old. worshiped in the Pan
theon, and laugh at their credulity.
Our own age has specimens, not rare, to
show of men who hold more degrading
creeds, and, in many instances, not
higher practice. In GOS of our era the
emperor of Constantinople gave it to
Pope Boniface IV, who consecrated it
to St. Mary and the martyrs, by which
name it is known. To the fact that it
thus became a temple of worship it is
due that we have it to-day the most per
fect specimen of ail ancient buildinzs.

and many other buildings dedicated of

THE UNPARDONABLE Sltf.
Rev. H. M. Simmon- Thinks Jesus
At the First Unitarian church yester
day morning Key. H. M. Simmons gave
his view of the narrow-minded man un
der the caption, '•The Unpardonable
Sin." Following is an abstract of his
"The unpardonable sin which Jesus
speaks of seems to have been the re
fusal to see anything holy outside of
one's own particular religion. The
narrow people about him had been say
ing that his way must be bad, since it
was not their way. They admitted that
he helped men and cast out devils; but,
they Bald, he did it by the prince of
devils. Jesus replied that a house could
not be thus divided against itself. If he
worked against evil, he could not do it
by an evil spirit; if he worked for
good, he must do it by a good spirit. All
good work, in whatever way it was
done, was holy and inspired by one and
the same holy spirit, and to lay it to the
devil was to ulaspheme that holy spirit,
an act too profane to be forgiven.
The unpardonable sin was in short
that narrowness of thought and feeling
which Jesus so often rebuked. He re
buked it in his picture of the pious
priest and Levite abandoning the
wounded man to be helped by the
heathen Samaritan; and, perhaps justi
fied Theodore Parker's sayiug that the
priest and Levite were probably on
their way to prayer meeting and could
not stop to hell) v man. Jesus evident
ly regarded bigotry as about the worst
thing in the world. The eood orthodox
Father Taylor, indignant at a slight
shown toward a heretic, prayed in
his chapel, 'Lord deliver us from
bad rum and bigotry. Thou knowest
which is worst. 1 don't.' But Jesus
wouhl have quite likely rated the latter
the lowest. At any rate, He tells some
of His best parables to rebuke it, utters
some of His severest words against it,
and now makes it the one sin that is not
to be forgiven. And seeing the perse
cutions and wars and countless cruelties
it has wrought in history, and the
wrongs it still works in dividing and
embittering men, one has to conclude
that Jesus was right, and that the sin
He rebuked is the one which has done
most harm, and deserves the least for
"Not that it is confined to churches,
for it is often just about as conspicuous
outside of them. Many people who
call themselves liberal, still show that
their thought is about as n ;«rrow as tha
of the men they censure. Tliey are j ust*
as sure that they are right, and liave no
more patience with churches than the
churches have with them. The \v\se

Rev. H. H. French Thinks Bern
hardt Infamous, Not Divine.
When Henry Abbey comes to Minne
apolis this week with Mine. Sarah
Beruhardt he will feel like presenting
Key. H. H. French with a good-sized
check, for Mr. Abbey is a shrewd
theatrical manager and appreciates
the value of advertising. Mr. French
toon advantage of the opportunity
offered by yesterday being ouuuav 10
advertise tne coming engagement of
Mine. Beruhardt. He might not have
thought that he was advertising the ap
pearance of Bernhardt,but he did it just
the same. He launched all the thun
ders of his thuuderous tones against the
great Freuch woman. He started up
one side of her and down the other.
Then he began going "criss-cross," as
the boys say, on the attenuated anatomy
of the actress. When lie had done she
looked, figuratively speaking, as if she
had been posing for a blind sword
thrower. Every form of denunciation
known to the human tongue was
launched at the head of the woman who
has admitted that she met with "acci
dents." Sarah was denounced as one
of the vilest of the creatures of the
earth, a moral leper, a woman with
out honor and without shame, every
thing that is vile in womanhood.
The subject of Mr. French's sermon
was "A Personal Question." The per
sonal question that he put to his listen
ers was, "Are you going to see Beru
hardt?" His admonition was that they
should stay away if they did not want
to become contaminated" with the va
pors from hell, exhaled through the
personality of the Bernhardt and
through the pieces in which she
appears. Her plays, too, came
in for a share of the denunciation.
The pastor pointed out the evil effects
resulting from witnessing the stage
presentation of the lives of such women
as Floria Tosca and Theodora, two
women who thought more of the pleas
ures ot love than of virtue and honor.
It was all done in Mr. French's most
oratorical vein and seemed to make an
impression upon the congregation.
NO TRUTH IN IT.
How That Story About the Plym
outh Employes Started.
Yesterday a morniug paper published
a story to the effect that a general con
spiracy had been discovered among the
employes of the Plymouth Clothing
company' to rob the company. Presi
dent Burton, of the company, says that
there is absolutely nothing iv the 6tory.
He believes that he has as good a lot of
men in his store as can be found in any
establishment in the city. It is stated
on good authority that the story was
started by men in the employ of the
Palace Clothing House and" Browning,
King & Co. Mr. Burton says that the
only foundation that there is in the story
is that a young man who was employed
at the Plymouth was arrested for steal
iug a pair of pant*

families in our store, and it is ao out
rage that such a story should be started
when there is not the slightest truth in
it. We have good nieiii working for us,
and it is uujust to cast suspicion on all
of them because one "black sheep has
chanced to stray iv. As for our having
advertised for extra, salesmen, we al
ways do that at this season of the year."

Pawnbrokers Done Up by a
Smooth Young Man.
A smooth young man with a smooth
scheme has been giving the pawnbrok
ers of Minneapolis a taste of "that tired
feeling." He has made them feel tired
to the extent of more than work
logman's wages since he struck
the town, and that was a
couple of weeks ago. He is
gone now, and several of the hard
earned shekels of the three-ball gentle-;
men who work from morn to dewy eve
lending money at 10 per cent a month,
have gone with him. lie took them in
at their own game, and they are weary.
This was how he did it:
He had a stock of goid chains. They
looked to be gold, they felt like gold,
they resisted the acid tests like gold
should, they were gold— the outside.
The chains were, in reality, sil
ver, plated with gold. He had
these chains made., in seam
less links and covered with a
heavy rolled plate ot gold. They were
made of precious metal, and were wortn
a good deal of money. All the tests
known to the art of the jeweler were of
no avail when applied to them. They
seemed the pure stuff. But. of course,
silver does not cost as much as gold
does. lhe young man could afford to
put silver into his chains if he could get
for them the price of gold ones. That is
just what he did. He would take a
chain to a pawnbroker and tell the
.usual story about being hard up, or no
[ story at all, for pawnbrokers are not
inquisitive in such cases, lie always
said that he wanted to raise money
: enough to get out of town, and did not
know when he would be able to redeem
it. He always preferred to ,. sell the
chain outright. He had little difficulty
in driving good bargains. He took in
most'of the pawnbrokers that way, at,
least the most prominent ones. Now
he is gone and they have no trace of
him. It is doubtful if he could be pros
ecuted, anyhow, as he made no repre
sentations as to the value of the goods.
And he really did give value for the
money. He did not give enough to sat
isfy the brokers, that was all.

race of the day, the five-mile handicap, '
invitation race for the Walker cup,
valued at $500. There were five start
ers: C. D. Catting and W. B. Young
at 350 yards, N. H. Van Sicklen at 300
yards, H. C. Kuisely at 275 yards, and
C. W. Dorntge at the pole. Dorntge
! was all alone for many weary turns, for
it was no easy task to overtake the pace "
of men like Van Sicklen, Young, Cut
ting and Knisely. He went resolutely 1
to work, however, cheered to his diffi- :
cult task by the enthusiastic crowd of
spectators, who were with him
throughout. And how he did go! s
The first mile was rolled off in 2:44, the
two miles in 5:30; three miles, 3:l7;four
miles, 11:04. Meantime the four other
men were putting up a race together.
At the end of the seventeenth lap
Dorntge had reached the leaders and a
race for blood began. Great excitement
prevailed as down the stretcn they
came, now one, now the other leading.
Knisely, of the Illinois club, crossed the
tape . perhaps six inches in the lead,
Dorntge L two feet in front of Cutting
and Young, the erstwhile spurter, in
fourth place. Such a shout as went up .
has seldom been heard on a race track,
and such an ovation as the Buffalo man
received has seldom been equaled.
Kuisely, too, received an ovation.

QUAKERS LIKE CRICKET.
Multitudes Flock to See the Brit
Philadelphia, Sept.27.— The cricket
match between the Gentlemen of Eng
land and the All-Philadelphia's eleven
was continued yesterday. Between 15,000
and 20,000 persons witnessed the con
test, by far the largest number of peo
ple that ever saw a cricket match in this
country. The result of the day's play
ing was the completion ot Philadel
phia's first inning for 243, eleven less
than the Englishmen made in their first
inning. The visitors begau their sec
ond inning and had scored eighty-four
runs when stumps were drawn, with a
loss of two wickets. The visitors' field
ing and throwing was greatly ad
mired. The work of the home team
in the second inning was much better
than their display of Friday. The
niatch which the Englishmen were to
play in Baltimore Tuesday and Wednes
day of next week has been postponed
until after the Boston match. Lord
Hawke says the game will be finished
when play is resumed Monday.
Novel Racing Association.
Chicago, Sept. 27.— The Eclipse Ath
letic and Racing association, a new rac
ing association, has been organized. Its
first meeting will open on Oct. 3,
next Saturday, and the scene
of its operations will be 29 to
33 West Washington street, between
Clinton and Canal streets, almost in the
heart of the city. The usual programme
of dasli events between race horses is to
be varied with the principals, an ad
mission fee of a reasonable size will be
charged to the inclosure, and purses
will be hung up for the winners in the
events decided. No boxing or wrest
ling exhibitions or prize fights will be
tolerated, ana no liquor will be sold on
Coining Chess Match.
London, Sept. 27.— The much-talked
of chess match of Blackburne vs. Guns
berg is at last assured. A Southampton
chess enthusiast hds declared himself
willing to pay the expenses of the men,
provided that the match shall be con
tested at Southamptou.
Scraps of Sport.
p Thomas Foley, of the Jackson street bill
iard rooms, will soon announce a medal for
an . amateur championship contest. The
proposition is to extend the tournament to
Minneapolis, each player in the tourney to
play in both cities during the series. .Shortly
after, he will give a bowling tournament.
He has six alleys all recently overhauled and
leveled until they are as nearly perfect as it
is possible to place them.
Sharott, the clever New York pitcher, who
broke his arm early iv the season, says he is
all right now and will be able to pitch as
well as ever next year. He has been playing
an outfield position for one 01 Staten Island's
amateur clubs lately, but has binsibly re
frained from box work.
Perry Werdcn's poor work in Baltimore of
late is attributed by many to the bleachers,
who made a mark of him". He lost his head
entirely ever after the crowd began cheering
him about having once been the driver of a
St. Louis beer wagon.
Fred Pfeffer is now the only Chicago
player who has taken part in every game
played this season by his club. Before An
son missed that game in Brooklyn by over
sleeping he shared the honors with Pieffer
in this particular.
■ Time was when the Sullivan family was
most numerous in base ball. -To-day the
O'Brien family throws all others into the
shade, there being more than half a dozen
players of that name engaged with first-class
: Germon, the popular little Maryland
pitcher, won twenty-six of the thirty-three
games he pitched for Buffalo this year. This
is a record uneuualed by any pitcher in any
.league, except Hutchison, of Chicago.
'McCarthy and Stivetts both deny having
signed with the Boston league team for next
season. They have, though, just the same,
says Tim Murnane. Perhaps Cleveland will
have something to say about Stivetts.
- ! This has been the unluckiest season the
Cleveland club ever experienced as regards
weather. Ail of its holiday dates at home
and abroad were either affected or totally
ruined by bad weather.
t ' Mr. ford, father of the brilliant short
stop of the Boston Reds, says that Boston
should have base ball every day for rive
■ months in the summer, but all should play
for -5 cents admission.
George Miller is now satisfied that catching
is his forte, and he will never again monkey
with any other position. He also says that
he and Galvin will be the star battery of the
league next season.
Jack Crooks may not be indisputably the
best second baseman of the Association, but
he undoubtedly is the king-pin of the Colum
bus club.— Sporting Life.
Joe Werrick is home from Denver. lie is
loud in his praises of Denver as a ball town,
and says the Denver club was a . great • one
when the season closed. . ■ .
In case no national agreement is reached
■ the Chicagos and Boston Reds have been in
vited to play the world's championship series
in 'Frisco this winter.
The majority of the New York players
think very highly of young Clarkson.' and
say he is one of the most promising pitchers
they have ever seen.
Buffalo had not won a pennant since 187 C
until this year. Blllie Barnie captured the
flag when Buffalo was a member, of the In
. ternational league. .
