Duluth first; Minnesota second;
time 7:45%, tells the story of the clos
est and most exciting eight-oar race
ever rowed in the Northwest. The
event was the grand finale of the Min
r.esota-Winnipeg regatta at Lake Min
netonka yesterday afternoon, and the
victory of Duluth, all the more cred
itable by reason of the substitution of
a new man in the shell at the last mo
ment, over the hitherto invincible
Minnesota crew is an aquatic triumph
of which the Zenith city oarsmen may
well be proud. The race was absolute
ly without a hitch of any kind and
was rowed from start to finish with a
grim determination on the part of each
crew to win or die in the attempt,
which sent the graceful shells skim
ming over the mile and a half course,
with no open water between either
eight at any time, and won the race
for Duluth by a scant six feet. So
close was the finish that from the ref
eree's boat it was impossible to tell
•which crew had won, but a wild shout
from a crowd of Duluth adherents at
the finish dispelled all doubt and an
nounced to the officials and large
crowds along the shore, and in the
boats which had followed the race,
that the wearers of the white Jerseys
Then pandemonium broke loose.
Steamboats whistled and screeched
the fall of the proud Minnesotas and
proclaimed the well-earned victory of
Duluth; men cheered like mad and
fairly hugged one anbther in their
joyful exuberance, while ladies waved
their parasols and handkerchiefs in
recognition of a hard fought victory
of more than ordinary significance, as
the Minnesotas have heretofore been
considered masters of the water in an
This excess of Joy, however, only
actuated the non-partisan spectators
present and the adherents of the Du
luth crew. To the admirers of the
Minnesota crew and the members of
the Minnesota boat club, the defeat of
their heroes came with a force which
fairly stunned them. They knew their
favorites had a hard race to row, but
that defeat should lay its cold, clammy
hand upon the victors of so many hard
fought struggles did not seem possible.
But, alas! it was too true, and the only
consolation was the fact that only the
glory which attached to Duluth's vic
tory exceeded that surrounding the
defeat of their idols, for never did a
crew lose a race so gallantly or take
defeat more manfully. If it was de
cieed that defeat must come to
the cherry and white, had they been left
the choice every man in the crew
•would have chosen Duluth as the mes
While completely overjoyed with their
victory modesty marked the bearing of
the Duluth crew in discussing the race,
and they readily admitted' having had
their hands full. To add to their cup
of Joy each member of the Minnesota
crew personally congratulated the Du
luth oarsmen, and amid the plaudits of
the spectators at the boat house vic
tor and vanquished cheered each other
to the echo.
The day was the most favorable of
any of the regatta from every point of
view, except regarding the conditions
of the water. A bright blue sky, across
which largely floated lower hangings
of lighter vapors, serving as a partial
screen for the sun's bright rays, and a
et' ady southwest wind made the con
ditions all that could have been de
sired from a spectator's standpoint,
and the afternoon trains brought the
largest crowds of the regatta td the
Socially the race was the event of the
reason, and the 400 of St. Paul and Min
ht-aj o'is were out in force, theAvomen in
beautiful summer costumes, made par
ticularly attractive by the blending of
gay colors and streamy ribbons. Al
most every fair one wore the badge of
some one of the crews quartered at
the la.ke and showed a dainty feminine
enthusiasm in the race, while the men
in tennis, golf and cycling costumes
lent an athletic appearance appropriate
to the occasion. Neither of the crews
did any work previous to the race, but
lounged about the hotel piazza, discus
sing the past events of the regatta. The
deepest regret was expressed on all
sides when it became known that B.
M. Peyton, No. 2 oar in the Duluth
eight, would not be able to row, and

him through the race, the equal of any
man in his boat.
It had been arranged to start the race at
6:30, but the wind, which had been blowing
strong from the southwest all day, increased
as evening approached, churning the water
into white caps at the finish line, and it was
decided to wait for an abatement At 7
o'clock the wind had gone down to some
extent, and though the water was still rough,
the crews were ordered out. Fifteen minutes
later, the Duluth crew in its white jerseys,
left the boat house, followed in less than one
minute by the Minnesotas, in cherry jerseys,
ornamented with large white Ms. Both crews
pulled slowly up the course to Lake Park,
each presenting a fine appearance, the mem
bers wearing a look of determination which
foretold a close race even before the start.
In the draw for positions Duluth. won the
choice and took the west side of the course.
Minnesota was assigned the east side, and
Starter Murphy ordered the crews to the
stake boats. Owlnjr to the srong aft quarter
wind it was impossible to hold the stake
boats in position, and after a delay of nearly
three-quarters of an hour, it was agreed to
start the crews- on the line. A little instruc
tion brought the shells nose and uose, and
Starter Murphy gave them the pistol.
Duluth caught the water the fraction of a
second ahead of Minnesota and stwU away at
a thirty-nve stroke. The Minnesota blades
took five strong, rapid half-strnkes, which
overcame the almost imperew-pcible delay at
the Btart, and, on even terms with their
rivals, they settled into a long, stea.ly thirty
five stroke. Side by side the two shells fltw
toward the Narrows, each crew working like
Trojans, but neither gaining any advantage.
The form of the Duluth crow was not equal
to that of the Minnesota*), nor was their
blade work as smooth, but they held their
own In splendid shape. The cherry and white
swung forward and back as Aey went to
their sweeps like the pendulum of n clock,
and not even in the rough water did a splash
or a "crab", mar their perfect action.
Going through the Ncrrows the Minnesota
shell showed a quarter of a length in front
of the Duluth boat, and on entering the open
water beyond, the lead had be^n Increased
to half a length. Duluth was still rowing a
thirty-five stroke, but Minnesota dropped to
thirty-four, still holding her lead. Half a
mile of the race was over, and the positions
of the shells had not ohangyd a length in
the entire distance. S»ar:icK on the nt-xt
half-mile Duluth raised its stroke to thirty
six and set out to lead the Minnesotas.
Never was a prettier strugcle seen on the
waters of Lake Minnetonki. Minnesota mov
ing with the precision of clo;k-work, Duluth
a little less smooth in their stroke, but pull
ing the gamest race of their ttven. On sped
the shells, and soon the more rapid stroke
of Duluth began to Ml. Foot by foot anl
yard by yard Minnesotas half-length lead
was reduced within an eighth of a mile. On
even terms the boats went for a few strokes
and then, just as sJrely aa th'jir disadvan
tage had been overcome Dulutl' forged ahead.
The Minnesotas still held to their thirty four
stroke and rowed etrong and woll but Du
luth was making the effort oi" a lifetime, and
entering the last ha f mile of the course, had
an even length lead over Mie Minneso'as. To
the last quarter the same positions were
maintained, and then cam? the tr.c of war.
Minnesota hit the stroke up to thirty-five,
and Duluth responded with thirty-six. A vic
tory nearly won lent strength to the Duluth
eight, and the finish in sight with their shell
a length behind inspired the Minnesotas to
almost superhuman effort. Still, smoothly,
backward and forward, swung the white jer
seys, and forward and backward swung the
cherry. The excitement on the accompany
ing launches was Intense. Trainers and of
ficials on the Saucy Kate fairly held their
breath. Suddenly It was realized that Minne
sota was gaining. The last eighth of a mile
was passed and still the Minnesotas were
cutting down the lead of their rivals. Liter
ally inch by inch their boat crept toward the
lead. It was a grand struggle, victory for a
crew which had not won an event during the
regatta, and defeat for the other, reckoned as
one of the fastest eights in the country. On
sped the shells to the line. Two pistol shots
rang out in quick succession and the race
was over. Minnesota had made a game fight
and beautiful spurt, but Duluth's boat went
over the line six feet in the lead in 7:45%.

Comparatively the time Is not fast, but this
fact is attributable to the rough water and
strong aft quarter wind which made steering
difficult. In the race with Duluth June 27,
Minnesota rowed a mile and a half in 8:10,
considerably slower than yesterday, but the
disabled condition of the Duluth boat at that
time did not call forth their best efforts.
On July 4th this year Minnesota was beaten
by the Wisconsin University eight at two
miles in 7:42, 3% seconds faster than yes
terday's race over a mile and a half course,
and at the national races at Saratoga, N. V.,
in '95 Minnesota finished third by less than a
length in the fastest mile and. a half ever
rowed in this country, which was done in 7:30.

HENLEY CREW BACK.
NEW YORK. July 25.— Among the passen
gers on the steamer New York were "Bob"
Cook and several of the members of the Yale
Henley crew. Mr. Cook said: "We have no
excuses to make for our defeat, because the
fastest crew In the world won. Leander did
not have the speed we made during the first
half on the course, but they knew how to take
advantage of their points. We have learned a
great deal during our stay in England, and I
am obliged to confess that English oars are
better than ours, but as to the boats, I do not
care to say anything, as that is one of the
things in which we have gained some valuable
information. We were treated royally and en
tertained most lavishly by the * Englishmen.
The stewards at Henley were all honorable
men, fair and square. Despite our defeat, we
had a most enjoyable time and divided the
honors in England with the Ancient and Hon
orable Artillery men."
LONDON, July 25.— The recordr of the rid

ALFRIDA FINISHED FIRST,
BUT WAS DISQUALIFIED FOR

But Cnpt. Welch of the Corona
Claims That the Kathleen
Yesterday's yacht race at White Bear
lake was the fastest of the season. The
Alfrida broke the record by about four
minutes. The day was fair, with a stiff,
squally, southwest wind. While there
were fewer boats taking part than is
usual, the race was superior in excite
ment and incident. A party of ladies,
among whom was Mrs. Welch, the wife
of the Corona's captain, filled the Dell
wood club house, and were interested
in the boat's every movement. The Al
frida, winner among the first class
sloops by her sailing, lost the race
on account of a foul at Ramaley's buoy.
The Kathleen, second in time, may lose
the race through a protest sent in by
Dr. Welch, owner of the Corona, who
claims that the Kathleen on the first
time around between the buoy and cen
ter; coming up to windward, struck
her on the side, which, according to
yachting rules, is not permissible. The
question will be decided in a few days
by the sailing committee. The Corona,
which, by the way, had been equipped
for the race with new sails, is con
fident of winning. The Alerta, the boat
which won the Taylor cup for last sea
son and the Island cup once this year,
was beaten by about five minutes.
This was partly owing to the new
rigging, the ropes being much too
large. In trying to lower the peak,
several minutes were lost. The mast
of the Lallie B. was broken and she
came in crippled. The second class
sloops had an even race, which was
won by the Falcon. The Advertiser,
which came in second, lost four or five
minutes by a foul of her jib in the first
time around from center buoy to the
club house. The Pastime did not do
her best on account of a misfit jib,
though the wind was favorable.
The May B. owing to her small sail
plan is suited to a wind like yester
day's and sailed a good race, losing
second place by 13 seconds. The prizes
were: Class A. commodore's cup: class
B. pennant; class C. J. N. Taylor's cup.
The latter, when won for two years,
is the property of the winner. The
Alerta, holding It for last year and
once this season, is liable to secure it.

OFF FOR CHICAGO.
Minnesota Cricket Clnb Goei to the
The following members of the Minnesota
Cricket club left the union depot at 8:10 last
evening to take part in the interstate and in
ternational matches arranged to take place
in Chicago during this coming week: B. B.
Donaldson (captain), C. T. Jaffray, G. C.
Saulez (vice captain). H. MacGregor, R.
MacGregor Jr., Vaughan, Wllcox, Taylor,
A. L. Sibley, Napier, Slsson, Miller and
W. R. Rumble (secretary and treasurer). The
team is considered one of the strongest that
the M. C. C has put in the field in some
years, and although pitted against such strong
antagonists as all Chicago and Winnipeg, ex
pect to make a creditable showing. All the
members are in good practice, one of the
only drawbacks being their having to play
on turf wickets after practicing on their
own matting crease, which plays much more
truly than grass is liable to, unless very care
fully prepared. The team left in the best of
spirits. The programme of the week's cricket
is as follows:
Monday— Chicago vs. St. Paul on the Wan-
der#»' ground at Thlrty-nlnlth street.
TuesiS.*— Pt Paul vs." the crack Winnipeg
team on' the" Chicago Cricket club's grounds
at Parkaide; cMcago club vs. Omaha at the
Thirty-ninth street Jtrounda.
Wednesday— Chicago v«v Winnipeg at Thir
ty-ninth street; Chicago vs. 8t Paul (re
turn match) on the P&rksfde grounds [ Winni
peg vs. Omaha at Thirty-ninth street.
Friday and Saturday will be devoted to the
two days' International match between Can
ada and the United States the latter's team
being chosen from the three state teams,
viz. ; Omaha, Minnesota and Chicago.
The games will begin at 11 o'clock each day
and from the amount of enthusiasm in Chi
cago over the events, a large crowd of ad
mirers of the game wlil be) afforded a great
treat. A strong effort, faypred by the ma
jority of the members of the International
association, will be mate to secure the meet
ing for St. Paul next year, this city being con
sidered most favorable aa regards its central

Some of the Craclt* Who WilL. Com
pete Next Week;.
The tournament for the championship of
the Northwest opens tomorrow at Lake Min
netonka. Several Chicago players will come
up to compete for the honor. Among these
are Harry Waldner and Carver, who will
play as partners in the doubles. Carver was
formerly with Ryerson, champion in doubles.
Slocum and Will Myers will play together
in doubles, as will George Belden and Hale,
of Minneapolis. Jayne and Cook will play
together. Neely will come also, but as yet
it is not known who will play with him in the
doubles. There will be more entries in the
double tournament at Minnetonka than there
were in the Western, and some fine tennis is
expected. Outside of these entries, Omaha,
St. Louis and other Western and North
western cities will be represented. Prof.
Wadsworth, of the University of Chicago,
will probably be among the Chicago entries.
In the event that the tournament comes to a
close by Aug. 1 Carr Neel will endeavor to
play the champion in singles in order to de
fend his title as champion of the Northwest.
Should it happen that the tournament lasts
longer than this, it will be impossible for
Neel to play the winner, as he will have to
go East to take, part in the Norwood in
vitation tournament in Massachusetts, to
which he and George Wrenn have been ex
tended an invitation to enter. The MacQuis
ton brothers have said that they will come to
Minnetonka if possible.

AUXILIARY COMMITTEE DISPROVES
THE IMPUTATION OF EX
LOUISVILLE CITIZENS COMING.
Committee Which Had Charge of the
1895 Encampment Will be
The ladies' executive committee of
the G. A. R. held a meeting at the
headquarters yesterday morning, with
Mrs. R. M. Newport in the chair. The
opinion of the committee was against
the erection of any expensive arches,
and the various ideas which have been
put forward in the matter were aban
doned. Only light decoration of this
nature will be attempted. A grand
war concert, devoted to the singing of
war songs, will be held some time be
tween now and the encampment. A
conversation which was overheard by
cne of the ladies while riding on the
street car was repeated as follows:
The Selby car was just passing the
Kltttson house, which has been con
verted into something entirely differ
ent from the eyesore it has been for
so long a time, when one passenger
turned to another and said: "Isn't it
dreadful that in these hard times wo
men are spending so much money on
flowers?" "Yes," replied the other.
"And I understand that they are put
ting even more expense on the inte
rior." Now, in regard to the matter
of expense, the women want it dis
tinctly understood that they are going
to no expense whatever for flowers or
interior furnishing. The former is be
ing done by the park commissioners
and the latter, that is in the way of
repairs, etc., by the trustees of the es
tate. Any furnishing which has been
done, and it is of the plainest, has
been donated. At the meeting at head
quarters in the Commercial club Tues
day of last week Capt. McCardy said
that the total expense account of the
women's committee, including postage,
janitor and watchman, was only $185!

Citizens of St. Paul will have an op
portunity to hear the children's chorus
and see the "living flag" before the en

by the managers to give a concert in
the Auditorium on the Wednesday or
the Saturady before the encampment
opens, and possibly one on each day.
The concert, or concerts, will be open
to the public on payment of 25 cents,
and it is proposed, so the managers
say, to make these preliminary enter
tainments the best of the kind ever
given in St. Paul.

Gen. Wesley Merrlti Post Plans an
Peter Daly sends the following to the
Globe: "I wish to call attention
through the columns of your widely
circulated paper to an order now in
existence about five years in this city
namely Gen. Wesley Merritt Garrison,
No. 58, Regular Army and Navy union.
The garrison now has a membership of
fifty and is increasing. The order in the
United States has a membership of
about 10,000 scattered from Maine to
"The aim and objects of the order
will be fully explained at an open meet
ing to be held at their hall, 71 West
Third street, Wednesday evening, July
29, where they want all ex-soldiers of
the regular army, navy and marine
corps. At the last national encamp
ment held at Washington, D. C, our
commander, Lieut. Budy, represented
our garrison. It was voted at that meet
ing to allow honorary membership to
those who did not serve in the army or
navy, but who performed illustrious
services as a civilians. President Cleve
land and ex-President Harrison were
voted to membership and were present
ed with a badge of our order, and
Comrade Budy named from his state
Senators Davis, Nelson and Col. Kie

given a badge of the order.
"For the information of those who
cannot attend this meeting, I would
state that the order is a fraternal one.
It takes care of the sick, aids the widow
and orphans of deceased comrades.
There is neither religion nor politics al
lcwed, so that any man can belong to
any religion or political party he wants.
"We are always ready to assist in
maintaining law and order, and our
allegiance is pledged to support exist
ing government, just as we did when
members of the army. We have no
secrets that our family may not hear
and partake in. We have a counter
sign, but this is only to protect us from

navy and marine corps will attend
our next open meeting."

Grant Frederick's Grounds for Auk
ing a Divorce.
Grant Frederick, a locomotive engi
neer, contracted a matrimonial alliance
in the spring of 1890, in the town of
Waterloo, State of New York. Yester
day he filed a complaint asking for a
divorce, in the district court. If there
is significance in the name of the York
state town, Mr. Frederick has suffered
thereby, for according to his own story
he met his Waterloo in Mame Fred
In graphic style the complaint details
the- "cruel, brutal and inhuman" treat
ment of the plaintiff by his wife. When
Mr. Frederick came home tired and
hungry, Mrs. Frederick told him to get
his breakfast himself, as she hadn't
time. By way of emphasis, Mrs. Fred
erick would strike her lord over the
sconce with a clothes stick. Upon a
future occasion when Mr. Frederick re
turned to his home, tired and hungry,
! so he says in his complaint, Mrs. Fred
erick gave expression to this heartless
sentiment: "She hoped that the next
time plaintiff returned, from his work,
he would return in a box."
Upon a subsequent ocoaslion Mrs.
Frederick, so the complaint charges,
struck at the plaintiff with a butcher
knife, remarking as she did so. "For
two cents I would kill you." The price
of his life being held so cheap, the
plaintiff by "great force" disarmed the
defendant. Other threats and assaults
on the part of Mrs. Frederick are al
leged in the complaint.
The couple have three children, a
boy of 5 years, a 2 year old girl and a
baby 7 months old. Plaintiff asks for
the custody of the children.
Upon application of Mrs. Frederick,
Judge Brill has ordered her husband to
pay $25 counsel fee and to contribute $5
a week temporary alimony. The court
has likewise ordered Mrs. Frederick to
cease following and annoying Mr. Fred*
crick in his private business.
