To Trafford N. Jayne, one of the pio
neer members of the Minneapolis ten
nis club, as it originally existed, fell
the distinction yesterday afternoon of
opening the eleventh annual North
western tennis tournament on the Ho
tel Lafayette courts. He made the
first service in the first match- and won
the first set 6-0. He played Will Finch,
of St. Paul, and one of the two repre
sentatives which the other twin sent
to the tournament, is thus out on the
first round, with only a chance to dis
tinguish himself in consolations. Arm
strong, of St. Paul, who played later in
the day, did better than that and won
from his opponent. It was a little past
3 by the round-faced clock in the hotel
office when word was passed along the
i line that the first matches were called.
The tournament had begun under aus
picious circumstances. There is every
indication of a week of as good tennis
as most people will see in a year, and
| that there will be growing interest
! each day was demonstrated by the
• crowd that assembled for the opening
The advance delegation of tennis
players arrived as early as Friday of
last week, when W. L. Meyers came i?i
from Chicago, to spend a few days in
recreation before buckling down to
work on the courts. Meyers is a famil
iar figure in the Northwestern tourna
ments, having participated several suc
cessive summers. He was the runner
up last year and starts in with a large
following of supporters.
An ideal summer day greeted the
players. Better could not have been
desired, with the heat of the July
sun tempered by a cooling breeze that
blew In from the lake and met the
cross breeze of the back bay. Half a
dozen matches in the first round of
singles were concluded, and a satisfac
tory beginning is made. No one ex
pected much display of skill in the pre
liminary games, but the spectators who
gathered on the edge of the courts saw
enough to reward them. The matches,
in all cases, were a home player versus
an outsider. A few additional entries
were received yesterday, among them
I Ward Burton, of Harvard, who is sum-
I mering with his family at Deephaven
on the south shore. Two of the best
known tennis cracks arrts'pii on the
afternoon train in the person.-? of Vic
tor Elting, from Chicago; Howard
Elting, St. Louis, both of whom have
participated in previous tournaments
With them came John C. Neeley, Chi
cago, who omitted coming last year,
after he had been a regular for two or
three seasons. The Minneapolis dele
gation showed up in pretty tfood shape,
'v.ith the majority of its strongest play
ers to the front in the entry list.
George Belden has finished his part in
the West Superior invitation tourna
ment, and will be on hand today. The
fact that Belden did so well In Superior
as to come out in second place will lend
additional interest to his play In the
Two of the three courts which were
made ready for the tournament were
used and were in good enough condi
tion to be pronounced fair. One court
was soft, but a little wfttins? will help
matters, and today it will be all right.
The start in singles was made shortly
after the arrival from town of the
early afternoon train. The opening
match was Jayne versus Finch. As
the two men approached the courts,
their arrival was watched with interest
by the group of spectators. They stood
in the court to decide service. Pinch
won the toss and chose the north court,
nearest the "grandstand." Jayne had
the first service, his ball went into tht
enemy's territory, and the tournament
was on. A. F. Pillsbury stood guard on
the inner side line as umpire, while
Charles Folds pulled out a vad of
paper and made ready to snore. Jayne
was too much for the St. Paul boy, and.
won the first set handily. He lost tv/o
games In the next set, but won out at
the end. His score at the end of the
match stood 6-0, 6-2.
The next entries In the court were
L. H. Waidner, of Chicago, and J. W.
Parker, Minneapolis. Waidner proved
himself as agile and quick of spring as
in the past. His left hand plays and
hard smashes were familiarly dis
played and it was not hard for him to
v.in his two sets and match at 6-1, 6-2.
While this game was in progress, W.
P. Slocum, of Chicago, met and de
feated Frank H. Barney, Minneapolis.
The Minneapolis pla#er was evidently
out of practice, and has not been in
the courts since last year. Neverthe
less, he played a plucky game, and
made his opponent work for his
honors. Slocum won at 6-3, 6-0.
Victor Elting and Albert Eddy, Chi
cago versus Minneapolis, next entered
the courts, and while Elting won at
6-2, 6-2, it was not all easy work.
Leonard Robinson Day met Roy Mer
rill. Both were Minneapolis men, al
though Day has done most of his play
ing abroad, where he was in college.
He played a hard stroke, that sent the
balls flying through the air, and both
sets fell his way with a winning score
of 6-0, 6-3.
The last match of the afternoon was
played by Armstrong, St. Paul, versus
McCasky, of the Northwestern Uni
versity. 111. McCasky began In poor
form, and it looked at the start as if
Armstrong had an easy thing, but the

Evanston man picked up right along,
and at the end he was playing good
tennis. Armstrong's winning • score
was 6-1, 6-3. •
Preceding the afternoon tennis, there
were some practice games in the morn
ing that were the best sort of tennis.
Meyers, Waidner, Slocum and Carver
were pitted against each other, both in
singles and doubles, and there was
some hot tennis, although it did not
count. It indicated the sort of play
that will be seen later In the week,
when the scrubs have been weeded out
and the strong men come to the front.
The singles will be called this morn
ing as early as 10 o'clock, and play will
continue through the day. This will
make a perceptible impression on the
first round: Frost vs. Neeley; Hale vs.
Turner; Carver vs. Barnes; Burton vs.
H. Belden; Cook vs. H. Elting. A
match between T. F. Wallace and W.
L. Meyers, to come off during the after
noon, will be a pretty exhibition of

day. In the preliminary round are

strong; McCasky and partner vs. Gates

FOR SILVER AND LIND.
The Delegates Cho.sen by Minnea
The Democratic primaries held last evening
for the election of delegates to the county con
vention for the purpose of selecting delegates
to the state convention, to nominate a candi
date for governor and other state officers and
select nine presidential electors, were carried
by the silver men, and over half of the dele
gates are either instructed or have voluntarily
declared for John Lind for governor. One or
two delegates were instructed for Frank M.
Nye for attorney general, but there was no
general sentiment developed upon this Issue
or any other except those indicated. The cau
cuses were quietly conducted. The number of
voters who turned out was about twice as
great as that whch elected the previous Dem
ocratic delegates, although there was prac
tically no contest and no occasion for a large
vote. A few Populists and an occasional sil
ver Republican was found in the Democratic !
ranks, but there was a marked absence of the
large accessions to the Democratic r.anks
which the silver advocates had promised.
,Aii>cng the notables who were chosen were
Judge John P. Rea from the First ward O. C
Merriman, J. H. Rolfe, Albert Christello from
the Second ward, Joseph Ktichl!, who heads the
Fifth rrecinct, from the Third ward, C. M.
±<oote from the Fifth ward. A. T. Ankeny and
W. E. Gooding from the Eighth ward.
The matter of a choice for chairman was
taken up and generally discussed at an in
formal gathering of the delegates at the Hen
nepin League rooms last evening. Among the
names mentioned were Matt Walsh, Judge
Rea, A. T. Ankeny, C. M. Foote and J. W. Law
rence. The general sentiment seemed to be
in favor of the election of Mr. Lawrence. If
this is done, it will have much to do to heal
the soreness between the Winston and Foote
factions. Lawrence has always been a leader
of the Foote wing, and it is currently re
ported that the two warring factions have de
ciaed to let by-gones be by-gones and get to
gether in the interest of a united party. Wil
liam Baldwin is suggested for secretary. There
will probably be no contests, unless one is
brought in the Second district of the Fifth
ward, where Col. G'.enn opened his caucus at
7 and closed it at 8 o'clock. It was reported
that there were a number of voters who tried
to vote there but could not, and they may
make a kick.
On the matter of the fusion, the Hennepin
delegation will be a unit. It is possible that
a resolution may be adopted urging the state !
convention to nominal John Lind for governor j
and adjourn, leaving the rest of the state ticket '
to be fixed up by a committee, which will con
fer With the Populists and silver Republicans.
They Are Tired of the Exorbltna
A «.k ok sine lit.
The great body of Minneapolis taxpayers
has rebelled against the exorbitant taxes
levied against city property, and has publicly |
declared its disapproval of the alleged ex- I
travaganoe in the use of city funds.
Yesterday nearly 200 representative tax
payers of Minneapolis marched in a body to
the city hall, appeared before the city board
of equalization and protested in strong and I
unmistakable terms against the burdensome
assessment now in force on Minneapolis prop
Never before has such a radical and de
cided action been taken by a body of unor
ganized men In this city. The action had
the more weight because of the undeniable
representative standing of the taxpayers pres
ent, and was the direct result of the morn
ing meeting called at the board o.f trade rooms
to consider the question of taxes.
F. N. Stacy, of the board of trade tax com
mittee, had hosts of figures at his tongue's
end, and his time limit of two minutes was
gladly extended by the meeting, which want
ed cold facts. Mr. Stacy showed that the
lax rate of 21 mills in Minneapolis averaged
from 25 to 40 per cent higher than in other
cities of about equal size. St. Paul had re
cently reduced her assessed valuation $2G,
--000,000, and had for several years past been
cutting down on the expense in the city de
partments, while, on the other hand, the de
partment expense in Minneapolis had in
creased. He thought that a committee sent
from the meeting to see the state board of
equalization would be courteously received
and would meet with success.
Judge Hicks stated briefly that the tax
payers had come to ask the board for relief.
He said that there were present men who
paid as high as $30,000 a year taxes, and
many of them paid annually from $5,000 to
$20,000 in taxes. He mentioned these facts
merely that the board might know that the
body before them was a representative one.
The members of the board of equalization
got their heads together in a little whis
pered consultation, and in a few minutes
Chairman Skoog arose, and, addressing the
anxiously awaiting assemblage, said:
"Gentlemen, the board is indeed pleased
that you have done it the honor of calling
this- morning, and in regard to the matter
to which your spokesman has Just referred,
we can only say that this very morning we
had begun to take it under consideration
and to investigate the situation. We are
therefore unable to give you any report just
at present, but we can assure you that your
request will be most earnestly and carefully
considered, and that you will receive a re
port from us- as soon as the investigation
That was all. It was quick action all the
way through. The whole matter had only
occupied two hours, and the taxpayers, after
applauding the remarks of Mr. Skoog, filed
out into the street and dispersed, to meet
again at the board of trade rooms this morn-
Ing to further consider the matter.
N. \V. Nelson Released From Lia
bility as Indopser.
Some years ago, Hardin Bros, made an
assignment for the benefit of their credit
ors, and afterwards made a settlement with
their creditors with an agreement to pay
33 1-3 per cent, agreeing to settle with notes
certain balances. They again assigned, and
the Powers Dry Goods company brought an
action to collect a note of $500 against the
firm, and W. Nelson as indorser.
Judge Belden has signed a decision in
which he holds that there was a private
agreement made between the Powers Com
pany and Hardin Bros, whereby the former
were to receive more percentage than the
other creditors. It is also held that such
an agreement was a fraud upon defendant
Nelson, as the liability was Increased with
out hie knowledge, and while judgment is
given against Hardin Bros., Nelson is re
leased from liability.
HEROIC MRS. DREW.
She Holds a Colored Man Im
Mrs. A. J. Drew, whose husband is manager
of a feed store at 311 Third avenue south,
yesterday proved beyond peradventure the
possession of heroic qualities. Armed with
nothing but a large carving knife she held
a burly colored offender imprisoned until
the arrival of the police. Contray to the usual
custom, she refused to faint, but quietly re
sumed her work.
Her exhibition of pluck resulted from a dis
agreement and personal conflict between a
colored ccuple named Minnie and William
Seward. They live near Third avenue south
Third street, and during the afternoon the
domestic unpleasantness arose. Just why he
did so Is unknown, but Seward seized a beer
bottle and hurled it at the head of Mrs. Drew,
who was In front of the feed store. The mis
sile went wide of the intended mark and was
smashed to atoms on the pavement Mrs.
Drew made for the fellow knife In hand,
and the latter ran into an outhouse in the
rear. He closed the door after him and Mrs.
Drew could not reach him. When he thrust
his head through the transom she would
strike at it with the knife. He dared not risk
an exit and was confined until the arrival of
Patrolman Rutledge. Seward and the woman
Minnie were placed in the central station
charged with disorderly conduct.
COURT HOUSE AND CITY HALL.
Minneapolis and Hennepln Connty
Judge Smith has lifted the cloud from the
court house and city hall, and again the build
ing belongs to the county and elty. Some
months ago the Burlington Manufacturing
company secured a Hen against the building,
in the shape of a mechanic's claim for wages
and material furnished in the construction of
the building. The Hen was placed the same
as any other one would be, ,and until the mat
ter was settled the huge building was under
the cloud, and apparently was liable to a sale
at the hands of the sheriff of Hennepin county.
However, the matter was given into the hands
of Judge Daniel Fish, who at once demurred
to the complaint and the case was heard
before Judge Smith in chambers, with the re
sult that the court sustained the demurrer,
and unless the supreme court reverses the
Judge, the court house and city hall is safe.
COMING CROQUET TOURNEY.
It Will be Held In Minneapolis This
The Minneapolis branch of the Western
Croquet association met last night at the
commercial club to perfect its organization
and arrange for a state tournament in this
city, in which all the state clubs will con
The members are D. M. Knox, B. F. Allen
H. G. Allen, William Butters, Capt. E. A.
Pratt, E. P. Gates, C. E. Teale, E. T.
Sykes, G. F. Branham, W. L. Badger. This
number is about all that can be accommo- j
dated on the grounds, though perhaps one or
two more members may be accepted.
Two model courts are being laid out on
the tennis grounds at Park avenue and
Eighteenth street. The state tournament will
be held in these courts. The tournament
was held at St. Peter last year, and the
Western Croquet association organized under
the same rules governing the Eastern asso
ciation. The game, when played scientifi- i
cally, differs very much from that ordinarily I
■played on lawns. It is becoming very popu
lar in the East.
The association adopted the title, Minneapo
lis Croquet club. The following officers were
elected: President, E. P. Gates; vice presi
dent, William Butters; secretary and treas
urer, E. T. Sykes; executive committee, Dr.
B. T. Allen, T. F. Branham, C. B. Teale.
The tournament date was fixed for Sept.
22, to be held on the new grounds on Park
avenue. It was decided to use the new com
posite balls colored red, white and blue, in
stead of the hard rubber ones.
Work on the New Westminister Will
be Pushed Rapidly.
The work on the excavation for the new
Westminster church commenced yesterday,
with a crew of fifty men and the necessary
teams at work. This part of the work is
expected to take in the neighborhood of
two weeks, after which the laying of the
foundation will commence. A month's tiidfe
will be consumed in completing the sub- I
structure. The carpenteits will be put to
work as soon as the masons can make room
for them, which it is expected can be done
in a month. By that time in the neighbor
hood of 200 men will be engaged on the con
struction of the building. The work will be
pushed vigorously from now on, so as to have
the building inclosed before winter. The
building will be completed some time next
The stone used in the building will be
entirely Minneapolis blue limestone, with
the exception of the trimmings, for which
Ohio limestone will bo used. The interior
wood finish will be cherry r in the main audi- I
torium and birch in the chapel. The frescoing
will consist of tinting in plain color. The
contract for the glass and .steam heating has
not yet been let.
TEACHERS AT AVORK.
University Summer School Sessions
The state university was a scene of life and
activity yesterday, it being the opening day
of the university summer school. The crowd
began to arrive before 9 oclock, and up to
noon there was a steady stream of school
teachers, mostly young women, wendtng their
way up to «ie library building. Now and
then a man could be seen, but they were not
numerous enough to attract any attention.
In front of the library building, and within,
the scene was a lively one. The teachers,
as they recognized some old friend of former
sessions, made a pleasing sight.
Each prospective student, on arriving, re
ceived a registration slip- which was filled
out, approved in the president's office, and
then presented to the registrar. For three
and a half hours the registrar kept at his
task, the line never breaking until noon.
Then again at 1:30 o'clock the stream began
again and continued for the rest of the after
noon. Up to 4 o'clock about 500 had regis
tered, and at that rate, by comparison, the
attendance will more than equal that of last
year, which was nearly 1,300.
HELP THE CAUSE ALONG.
City Council Will be Asked to Aid
The executive commmittee of the Knights
of Pythias yesterday directed Secretary
Wheaton to address a communication to the
city council requesting an appropriation from
the contingent fund for the benefit of the
Pythian encampment. No amount was spec
ified, but it is understood that the aldermen
are willing to contribute $1,500 to help the
good work along.
A committee on comfort, consisting of W.
G. Nye, Robert Stratton and Dr. E. R. Aid
rich, was appointed to look after visitors.
This committee will establish a bureau of
information, keep a register, and do all in
its power to make the occasion memorable
to the visiting knights and their thousands of
The matter of providing a hospital tent and

Numerous Arrests Made to Head It
BERLIN, July 27.— A dispatch to the Kol
nlsche Zeltung from Warsaw says that sev
eral arrests have been made there of persons

LONDON, July 27.— A dispatch from
Cape Town reports that intelligence
received from Buluwayo is that the
Matabeles are again massing around
that place. The situation seems no
better than it was last April, when
Buluwayo was practically besieged for
weeks. Various operations, some of
them reported as highly successful and
In which Cecil Rhodes was an active
figure, have been conducted against
the insurgent natives, but they were
apparently ineffectual in stamping out
i the disaffection. The news received
yesterday of Capt. Nicholson's posi
tive reverse in the Matoppo hills and
the withdrawal or retreat of his forces,
deepens dissatisfAtion with the state
of affairs in Rhodesia. Today's re
ports from Buluwayo are that Capt.
Nicholson is remaining there in order
to guard the laager and that the pick

largely increased owing to the mass

Three of his troopers were killed and

The unfavorable news from Rhode

himself loath to agree to this step,

aroused in the Transvaal. These would
not be lessened if the imperial rein

time, by the fact that Cecil Rhodes is

The Chronicle publishes a letter from
Buluwayo this morning, giving a
characteristic description of Burnham,
the American scout, who has done
i snob, excellent service again at the
Matabeles, notably his shooting ot
Milmo, the Matabele God, in a cave in
the Matoppo hills, while he was in the
very act of performing some of the
religious mummeries by which he
maintained his hold on the supersti-
I tious natives. The Chronicle's cor
respondent says: "Among the work
manilke and picturesque figures here
scarcely one catches and charms the
eye more than the spry and alert form
of Burnham. Years ago, Selous (the
famous elephant hunter said to be the
original of Rider Haggard's "Allen

vrondrous hunters eye, now Burnham
does the same.

The press correspondents at Bulu

complain that the authorities are hush
ing up the details of the recent fights
which are said to be not so favorable
to the British forces as the reports al

extreme confidence and display great
arrogance, jeering at the whites and
calling them cowards.
Selfishness Stands In the Way
LONDON, July 27.-The Times this morning
comments upon a dispatch from its Melbourne
correspondent, which was cabled to the Asso
ciated Press, reporting that Hon. G. H. Reid
prem er of New South Wales, thinks that
a. zollverein between England and her colon
ies would be impossible, because the clash
ing of the selfish trade interests would tend
to destroy the present loyalty, and the zoll
verein might unite the rest of the world in
a hostile combination with the new and sub
stantial motive of revenge.
"Only Canada among the colonies " says
the Times, "is really desirous of a zollverein
and, as the conditions of trade with Canada
are altogether artificial, it behooves us to
diagnose more fully the nature and extent
of the cause which produced the suggestion
of a zollverein before consenting to a change
in the whole fiscal system of the empire It
will be strange If the Laurler government
pledged as it is, to the tradition of free trade'
does not place greater reliance upon the relief
obtainable by improved steamship and cable
services, than by creating obstacles to the
erection of new tariff walls between Great
Britain and her neighbors. This may do us
a vital injury, and restrict our relations with
