FAIR SAINTS' DAY
AA'NUAL LADIES' RACE OF THE
WHITE lIKAR YACHT CLl'B
ALFRIDA STILL WINNING.
DOES NOT MAKE MICH DIFFER
ENCE WHO SAILS THE HER
RESHOFF no AT.
POHTIXE SMILED ON THE GIRLS
With the Beat Weather of the Yucht
liife Season for a I'lvavant
The lad:es' race at White Bear lake 1
yesterday afternoon was one of the j
events 01 the season. A prettier, more j
appropriate day could not have been j
chosen for the occasion. The weather ,
was fair, the wind from northwest to !
west, with a speed of from three to I
four miles an hour, was light and vari
able, with intervals of calm, affording !
opportunities for gay conversation, j
The short course was taken. From
Dellwood buoy around center and
Wlldwood buoy, to Lake Shore, around
center and horne — six miles in extent. ]
The Sallie B, of the cat boats, the first j
boat in. was the first to start, but lost ,
time in running too close to the island, !
thereby losing the breeze, while the j
other boats sailed in the open and |
profited by a good wind. At the Wild- j
wood buoy, although in the lead, she j
v:k only one minute ahead, but her j
speed increased steadily after that, and 1
she led by nine minutes at center and !
eleven at the finish. The boat reflects
credit upon her builder. She made ex
ceptional time for a cat boat, being I
only fourteen seconds more than Al
frida by actual time, and one minute,
one second less by corrected time. The j
Grayling and Alerta pulled away from !
the Bonita and the Sister, and kept in
the same relative position as far as !
Lake Shore, after turning this buoy the
Grayling passed the Alerta and main
tained that position to the finish. The
Bonita finished more than five minutes !
after the Alerta and the Sister four !
minutes later. The Aurelia fell behind !
soon after the start and did not catch
up during the race. In the second class
sloops, the Advertiser led throughout
the course, coming in ahead of the
Wopsie, which waa second, leading
the Siren by one minute. The May B !
arrived ten minutes later. The Falcon, j
which started second, dropped behind i
the Wopsie before the center buoy was j
reached the first time, and was caught
by the May B, which salied ahead of
her from that point. Owing to an en
tanglement in the weeds at Lake Shore
the Falcon did not finish. In the first
class sloops, the Alfrida won as usual.
Starting first, she held the lead ■
throughout, coming in two and one-half
minutes ahead of the Corona. The most
Interesting feature of the race was the
close contest between the Corona and
'' Kathleen. Starting almost together—
the Corona four seconds ahead — they
exchanged positions several times be
fore reaching Wildwood, each boat run
ning ahead at intervals until reaching
the center buoy, the Corona secured }
the lead and held it to the finish. The
Pastime, starting last in this class, was
the last to finish.
An exceptionally large number of
boats were entered, six cats, four first
class sloops and five second class.
A noticeable feature of the race was
Its uniformity. The leader In each
class maintaining the lead from start
to finish. The different crews were as

S. P. Ordway, Dr. Little. E. F. Hertz.

The bright faces of the ladies as they
stepped upon the dock at Dellwood
made a pretty picture. The buzz of
congratulation was more deafening ]
than the hum of mosquitoes on a sum
mer evening at the lake, and far more
pleasing. One or two trifling stings
might be given, but a little philosoph
ical camphor cures that.

TARTAR NOT INVINCIBLE.
Charlotte Wrests a Victory From
the New Minnetonka Boat.
There was a surprise yesterday in
yachting circles or. Lake Minnetonka.
The Charlotte won the yacht club race,
and the Tartar came in second. This
proves that Tartar is not invincible,
notwithstanding she is a marvelous
bout, and has won as pretty a series
of races as have ever been sailed on
lake water. Had Tartar taken this race,
it would have decided the championship
for her, but she came in 13 seconds by
corrected time behind the winning boat,
and must wait two weeks before she
has another chance. This week there
will be the annual yacht club cruise to
the upper lake, and will not count as
a race. Tartar will probably win the
championship, but Charlotte has proved
that she is capable of beating in her
own wind. The race was interesting
fiom the start, and close between the
CharlotFe and Tartar all along the
ccurse. It was eminently a Charlotte
day, and the Breezy Point sloop gave
evidence that she can do a good thing.
H. C. McLeod came up from Chicago
to put his hand on the tiller, and it
had plenty of exercise after the race,
accepting the congratulations that were
generously offered on all sides. The
race was sailed in 1:58:01, actual time.
It was Charlotte's first victory, al
though she made a grand stand finish
three wec-ks ago and only lost by giv
ing time allowance to Tartar. It was
a good day for sailing. The. wind was
brisk, and for the most part steady,
occasionally strengthened by squalls
Few prettier races to witness, have
been sailed this season, the boats
bunching at the start and stringing
out in procession over the course, with
the leaders following one another, one
gaining, the other losing, until at
the finish there was only 13 seconds'
difference. The fleet numbered 19 boats,
with seven sloops in Class A. The two
new boats were out, the Day-Case
slcop, Annette, and David Tenney's
new special, which he has nam^d
Doris. The big sloop did not show up
well, losing two places in her class,
having started fourth sloop and finish
ed sixth. She was the eleventh boat
home. The little special, sailed under
fleet well along In the course. She won
in her class, beating Magic Slipper,
which has been winning in the class,
by something less than a minute. Doris
was the third boat around the home
buoy at the finish. The long course,
twice around, with buoys to starboard,
sailing toward Crystal bay, was the
course chosen by the regatta commit
THEY SWIM LIKE FISH.
Minneapolis Man and the English
Articles have been Bigned for a
match swimming race between Charles
"Wtntery, of Minneapolis, and D. A.
Pellatt, the English champion. The
race is for $150 a side and the distance
800 yards straightaway. The place is
to be decided by Aug. 10 and the race
to take place any time between that
day and Aug. 15. The referee is to be
chosen by the contestants on the day
of the race. A boat will follow the'-fiftl
course and the contestants, are to.Jkeep
not less than two feefe apart, either
man fouling the other forfeiting the
race and the stake. Both of the men
have won numerous races and prizes.
GRAND CIR«7I7IT FINALS.
Some Good Races on the Closing
CLEVELAND, Ohio, Aug. I.— The
Grand Circuit meeting at the Cleveland
Driving park closed today with three
good races. It was another perfect
day and the track was In splendid con
dition, but the crowd was somewhat
smaller. Don L. and Dick Hubard
were favorites in the 2:12 trot, but El
loree took the race after a hard
struggle with James L., who would
have secured first place but for a bad
break at the wire in the third heat.
Dan T. had a walkaway in the 2:19
class pacing. He won the three heats
with ease, leaving the entire field be
tween five and ten lengths behind at
each finish. Red Oak was the favorite
in that race. Red Star was the favorite
in the 2:23 class trotting, but after Blue
Bell had won the second heat, Helen
K. took the next two and the race,
Red Star coming In for second money.

Harrison and Capen finished their balk line
series at Foley's rooms last night, Capen doing
himself Justice for the first time in the

154, or four better than his nightly mark.
This was done with an average of six, while
Harrison averaged 12. Capen had five double
figure runs with 27 for high and Harrison
doubled a dozen times, playing brilliantly
throughout, but without exceptionally long
runs, his highest being 37. He had only three

London, Aug. 1. — Vhe preparations for
the reception of Ll» Hwng Chang con
tinue, and her majesty.^Queen "Victoria,
in spite of the precarious condition of
her health, is said to be especially in
terested in the coming of the Chinese
ambassador extraordinary, who has
been made bg much of in Russia, Ger
many and France. The Chinese states
man is booked to land in England on
Monday, and he will be escorted ■to
Lord Lonsdale's splendid mansion, on
CaVlton House terarce, this city, which
has been secured by the government
for the accommodation of Li Hung
Chang during the month which he is
expected to spend in England. An
elaborate, series of entertainments and
royal events have been arranged in his
honor. Vanity Fair warns its readers
against the members of Li Hung
Chang's suit, saying that the bulk of
them are quite a low class of men, who
would not dare to venture into an Eng
lish or American merchant's private
reception room at Shanghai. The news
papers, for some time past, have con
tained a mass of matter concerning
the visiting Chinaman. It is said that
the Chinese viceroy, when invited to a
dinner insists on dining from his own
cuisine before going to the table of his
hosts, and he only makes a pretense
of dining when he is at the banquets
given to him. After the dinner given
to him by Prince Bismarck, at Fried
richsruhe, the German statesman ex
pressed astonishment, it is said, at the
fact that Li Hung Chang did not taste
any of the dishes placed before him,
whereupon the traveler is reported to
one s habits. If I dined with you I
should be forced to., partake of fare
which I did not like! Hence, I prefer
to abstain from eating, rather than be
asked to make a face >at everything not
to my taste." to ■'->
Prince Bismarck is^repprted to have
thereupon remarked: \.
"How do yoa know that you would
not like our good Geromw cuisine, since
you have never tried ;lt?f'<:
"That js true," the Chinaman Is cred
ited with having replied^ "but would
you eat with pleasure the Chinese dish
of rats and dogs if I served It up at my
table?" , .
This question seems to have silenced
the great German statesman.

The socialist congress, which has
been in session here during the past
week, has furnished what Is classed as
a ridiculous exhibition of impotence
and inadequate ■ organization of the
simplest details necessary for the con
duct of a special congress, and the del
egates would have been handicapped
thereby in any serious attempt to do
business, even had there been no dis
cord. Matthew Maguire, the leader of
the American section of the socialist
congress, informed a representative of
the Associated Press that absolute ig
norance of the principles of the social
ist movement existed in the committees
appointed to frame the resolutions.
The congress has. also proved that so
wide is the dissimilarity between the
foreign and English-speaking delegates
that nothing closer is possible than in
ternational sympathy. Concerted
methods are out of the question. The
press and the people, while crediting
the congress with serious intentions,
have been much amused at its helpless
ness in the face of internal dissension.
The British Medical association

The long and. elaborate article by
Mr. John Morley, the late chief sec
retary for IreJand, in the Nineteenth
Century, on arbitration, is attracting
considerable attentionr Mr. Morley
contends that while the line of differ
ence between Secretary Olney and the
marquis is narrow, yet one British
non possumus would easily convert it
into a risk of a fratricidal war. He
strongly opines that what is to be
done must be done quickly, and dreads
the result of fatalistic confidence In
the wisdom of Downing street. Mr.
Morley adds that for the foreign office
to leave arbitration alone would be
nothing of a disaster to one of the
greatest causes -now moving the West

An official despatch received from
Rhodesia yesterday stated that Capt.
White with 250 men, a seven-pounder
and two Maxims had gone to the relief
of the Hartley laager, and the latest
news from the column was that Capt.
White had taken up a position on the
top of a kopje, which he was defend
ing; he asked for food and ammuni
tion. Thus it appears that this strong
force is only able to hold its own owing
to the altered tactics of the enemy.
Sir Frederick Carrington admits that
he needs more troops, but he is unable
to feed or transport them, owing to
the prevalance of the rinderpest.
The latest telegrams report increas
ing numbers of cases of treachery
among the friendlies, who are supply
ing the insurgents with cartridges and
food. The authorities, having aban
doned the Idea of driving the insurgents
out of the Matoppe Hills, deciding in
stead to build a chain of forts around
them and starve the enemy. Twenty
forts have already been commenced.
These will be maintained after the re
volt is quelled as a refugee for people
in the event of another outbreak. In
addition, a permanent police force of
1,000 men, is to be enrolled.
SPANIARDS WIN BATTLES.
Sri Say the Dispatcher From Wey
HAVANA, Aug. I.— During different
skirmishes just reported in various
parts of the island, the insurgents left
3!i killed and 9 wounded on the field,
four prisoners were captured and the
enemy retired with 27 wounded. The
troops had .seven killed and two offi
cers and 30 privates wounded.
Amado Maistay, an insurgent prison

Death and the Whipping Post for
Red Cattle Thieve*.
SOUTH ALISTER, I. T., Aug. I.—
The Indian court' sitting at Wetumpka,
has sentenced two men to death for
cattle stealing, and others to undergo
the whipping post for having com
mitted similar offenses. Isaac McGirt,
who stole a cow more than a year ago,
will be given 100 lashes on the bare
back, and Lumka Harjo, for house
breaking, will receive 500 lashes. For
his third offense, at cattle stealing,
Jesse Thlocco was sentenced to death
by shooting. One Wilson was convict
ed of helping Thiocco and will receive
100 lashes. Sandy Deacon, who was
charged for the third time with hog
and cattle stealing, was also given a
death sentence. There are about a
dozen other cases on the docket, and
It is probable that of these one half
will be given the death penalty. All
are Indians. _

fIIOT AT CLEVELAND
ANOTHER STRIKE ON AT THE
BROWN HOISTING* WORKS
STRIKER FATALLY WOUNDED.
THE CENTRAL LABOR ITNICN DE
CLARES A SYMPATHETIC
STRIKE AT O.VCE,
WILL AFFECT "WHOLE COUNTRY.
Twenty Thouaand Men Will Be Af
fected by the Sympathetic
CLEVELAND, 0., Aug. I.— lt is very
probable that the Central Labor union
will order a big sympathetic strike,
throughout the city at the next meet
ing of the Central Labor union. To
day the executive committee of the
striking Brown hoisting men and labor
leaders of several unions, met In con
ference and decided that a spmpathetlc
strike was necessary. The committee
appointed by the Central Labor union
to report on the advisability of a sym
pathetic strike reported favorably.
The number of unions affiliated with
the Central Labor union is 6,000, and
the total membership numbers 20,000
in all branches of trade. These men
have voluntarily bound themselves to
obey the mandates of the Central Labor
union, which consists of chosen repre
sentatives from the different unions.
The fight will not only be local, but
national. Every union In the United
States will be called upon to assess its
members for the support of the Brown
CLEVELAND, 0., Aug. I.— All the
union men employed at the Brown
Hoisting & Conceying works again
went on a strike today, and a boycott
against the company was declared. It
is claimed that the Brown company
has failed to keep Its agreement in
reinstating the strikers, and that a
number of new hands have been em
ployed since the strike was declared
At noon today, while the nonunion
men were being 'escorted from the
works by ' the police, a tremendous
crowd of strikers and their sympathi
zers gathered and hooted and threw
stones ait the nonunionists. The police
repeatedly charged the crowd and
made numerous arrests, but were un-
able to disperse It. During the excite
ment and confusion, John Prince, a
union man, employed In the Forest
Olty foundry was shot by some un
known nonunionlst and will probably
die. Prince is 28 years old, and has a
wife and two children.
Three .companies of militia and a
large force of police were sent to the
Brown works this afternoon.
The trouble began early In the morn-
Ing when a mob surrounded the .house
of one of the non-union workmen and
bombarded It with stones and bricks,
breaking the windows, and even
smashing the weather boards. The
police, hearing of this trouble, pre
pared for an outbreak at noon when
the non-union men should be dismissed
from work. A party of these work
men, disregarding the efforts of the
police to protect them, started to walk
away from the works. They had not
gone far when they were met by a
mcb. First the rioters began to shout
at the non-unionists and then to throw
bricks. Tben the men drew revolvers
and began shooting at the crowd.
Soon after the Bhooting the police ar
rived on the scene, but the mob had
disappeared and all was quiet. This
outbreak resulted In the calling out of
two companies of mllltla, and by the
middle of the afternoon eighty police
men, in addition to the military, had
been massed In the vicinity of the
Brown works. No more trouble oc- 1
It is thought that a long and titter
struggle will ensue. The manager of
the Brown works says the agreement
for the settlement of the strike was
well understood by the representatives
of the strikers, and the company stood
ready to live up to its terms. The vio
lation of the agreement by the men,
he says, absolved the company from
any further consideration of them, ancj
enables it to begin all over on a nevn
basis. This is taken to mean that the
company will proceed to hire new. meo,
