GAMES SCHEDULED FOR TODAY.
Columbus at St. Paul.
Indianapolis at Minneapolis.
Detroit at Kansas City.
Grand Rapids at Milwaukee.
Aside from the fact that the atmos
pheric conditions were any thing but
pleasant, the spectators at the ball
park yesterday afternoon might have
enjoyed two nice ball games. St. Paul
s and Columbus each won one, the
Saints prevented the Discoverers, in
the first game, from exploring any of
the territory beyond first base, while
the Saints sent not less than fifteen
men en trips of circumnavigation. The
Columbians, however, braced up a bit
in the second game and held the locals
down to two runs, neither of them
earned, while they fell upon Phyle In
one inning for four runs, and carried
away a victory.
V In the first game the locals were con
fronted by a team containing many
mew faces. Arlie Latham, late of the
"Runaway Colt" company, was playing
at third, while Frank and Strauss, re
cently released by Minneapolis, were
at right and first base respectively.
McGreevy was a little wild. It was
his first appearance at Aurora park
since the famous fourteen-lnning game,
from which he was ejected in the tenth
inning by Umriire O"Day. O'Rourke
got a base on balls, and Stratton hit
right field, which formula is now
Incoming familiar to all patrons of
ff.e game locally. Glasscock sacrificed,
and Oeorge forced in a run. One
should have been out, but Latham, in
throwing to second, hit Stratton and
nearly put him out of the game again.
Burns forced Stratton out at third,
and Mullane's base on balls left the
bases full, when Hollingsworth retired
the Hide. Two were out when Walter
Arlington Latham hit * safely, and
danced around in the sand near first
base, scarcely dry from the rain earlier
In the day. "Get me a pair of skates,"
he shouted to the bench. "You could
not steal second here in forty years."
Everybody knew this was "the office"
for an attempt to steal, and the truth
of the observation was established
when Arlie was caught at least four
feet from second, and Glasscook had
then held the wet ball until it was
frozen to his glove.
Spies waited until McGreevy could
get him free transportation to first
base, and then Roger Denzer, just as
true as you are reading this, bunted
the ball. McGreevy ought to have
stopped it, but he thought Parrott
\ would get it in time. But that wet
ground made the track about three
seconds slow, and when Parrott came
up on it, Spies was already safe at
second and Parrott had to make a
hurried «throw to first. The ball went
low and Strauss only stopped it, with
out getting Roger out. O'Rourke also
bunted and McGreevy threw to second,
but Cantillon dropped the ball and the
bases were in the condition of St. Paul
hotels during encampment week.
Stratton sent Frank a fly and Spies
scored. Glasscock hit safely and some
scored and George capped the
climax by making one of his old-time
drives over the right field fence, away
beyond the hat, for a home run. Burns
hit a hard one to right, and Mullane
again waited for four balls. Hollings
worth hit the ball with geometrical
precision and sent it in a line for the
carriage gate. Arlie Latham threw his
tambo to the players* bench and
dropped his song book, while, reaching
up with his left, he stopped the liner
with his velvet paw. He was unable
to hold it. however, and a brilliant
catch was spoiled, but Parrott startled
•"•those who remembered his work here
in the early spring, by getting the ball
in an instant and starting it down the
line of the bases for a successful dou
ble play. It was a beauty from start
to finish. Frank hit safely, but the
locals made a double play themselves.
With two out, O'Rourke hit to center
fu-ld for three bases, and scored when
Wallie Latham failed to get to the
depot in time to meet the Stratton
cannon ball going past. Parrott hit
safely, but first base was the limit.
Burrs opened the fourth with a vic
lrus swing, but the ball struck the bat
near the handle and dropped straight
iown. or nearly so. He beat It to first,
for both pitcher and catcher were the
full distance. Mullane hit a sound one.
and Hollingsworth bunted. Wilson
should have had It easy, as it did not
roll, but as he stooped to pick it up
he slipped in the mud and sat down.
He threw- to third, but not well enough
to get any one out. The next two w^nt
out with the bases full, however, and it
■was O'Rourke's two-base drive that
brought in the runs this inning. Can
tillon got a base on balls before any
one was out, and could get no further.
Glasscock's two-bagger and Burns'
single scored another in the fifth. Par
■**><t hit safely again, but was left at
Spies hit a fly which Butler could not
get to, and scored on singles by O'-
Rourke and Stratton. Columbus went
one, two, three. •
George drove a long one to center
field. Genins, after a hard run, got
it in his hands, but dropped it, and
George was on second base. Burns
gave Strauss a foul fly, and Mullane
r third time reached first on balls. Hol
lingsworth hit a safe one, and George
scored. Spies gave Straus another fly,
Denzer .dpa&ed a series of three
hits, of which ,fi£r.atton's was a two
fcagger. The score 'tor the inning was
four, and they were the last runs in
the game made by any one, although
the locals had three men on bases in
the ninth when George flew out to

Pete Daniels went in to pitch in the
second game and the first ball batted
went right through Latham's ana
tomy. Kraus took Stratton's place out
of respect to the ex-Kansas City twirler
with the Antarctic pitching wing, and
forced O'Rourke out at second. Kraus
stole second and Parrott let Wilson's
throw go to center field, Kraus reached
third ani scored on Glasscoek's single.
A base on balls and O'Rourke's error,
gave the visitors two on bases, which
was more than they had at once in the
entire first game, but neither scored,
and nothing more of moment occurred
until Parrott made a pretty stop in
the third and threw to Strauss for a
pietty double. Daniels waited till Phyle
had pitched four assorted bad ones,
and then was forced out by Butler. The
latter went to. third on Cantillon's safe
hit to right field. When Latham struck
out, Cantillon started for second, and
kept the locals playing for him until
Butler got in with the run, which was
not very long. That made it a tie, but
the locals opened the fourth with
George's safe single. Burns struck out.
"Lathe" was amusing the crowd by
a graphic word-picture of Jack Glass
cock singing "Comrades" at an en
campment of the veterans, when Glass
cock yelled to Mullane to hit one at
him. Mullane did, but it went too
high In the air, and Latham got It
handily. Daniels' bad throw sent
George around to third, whence he
scored on Hollingsworth's single. Gen
ins was struck out, but Frank hit one
through Hollingsworth, and went to
second on a wild pitch. He scored on
Wilson's single and again it was a
With one out, O'Rourke hit safely
and started to steal second. Kraus hit
the ball high in the air and it looked
els though it would come down without
being caught, but Wilson got it, and
wheeling quickly, made a sensational
throw to first base getting O'Rourke
before he returned. It was a tie until
the visitors' half of the sixth when
Latham hit a hard one. Genins pounded
the ball down over second base hard.
Hollingsworth reached and knocked it
down, but it bounded over to the
other side of the base. Glasscock, who
was nearer it, tried to get it, but it
was just out of range and Latham
was safe at second, whereupon he was
as happy as a lark, and his grimaces
would have put to the blush the most
accomplished chimpanzee in a Clark
street museum. Frank waited for four
balls and the bases were again occupied
s.ll the way around. Two two-base hits
thereafter "made four runs, and that did
From that on the feature of the game
was the play of Parrott at short, as
every time the locals hit a ball that
seemed to bear with it some promise of
success, Ji^gs would get it and pull it
out of the frozen earth. Score: *

yesterday afternoon on Lake Minne
tonka in a stiff breeze, and resulted in
a close victory for the White Bear boat.
Nushka won by a narrow margin of
26 seconds, receiving time allowance
from Varuna of 1.42. Varuna further
started with a handicap of one minute
and thirty seconds, as a result of hang-
Ing on a reef by the club house. This
leaves a race apiece to each boat and
the tie will be sailed off tomorrow af
ternoon. The two cats made a flying
start from the clubhouse buoy, the gun
firing shortly after 2:30 o'clock. The^
judges viewed the start from the club
house, and the course lay three times
around the triangle. Since the last
race, Nushka had been fitted out with
a new mast and a heavier centerboard.
L. P. Ordway sailed the Nushka, and
Theodore Wetmore, Varuna.
Varuna started out with a reef, which
she shook out on the second round. The
Nushka crew was highly elated at the
victory and are confident of carrying
off the championship. Mr. Wetmore
still has firm faith in his Varuna.
Closing Event at Sheenshead Bay
Won by Ogdcn. •
NEW YORK, Sept. s.— The fine card which
had been provided for this, the last, day of
the racing at Sheepshead Bay a large
attendance, and there was some of the best
racing seen in a long time. The event of
the day was the Great Eastern handicap for
two-year-olds over the Futurity course, in
which all the best of the youngsters, with the
exception of Winged Foot, were contestants
and at high weights. In the first quarter, the
fast filly, Sunny Slope,, shot into the lead,
with Voter, Typhoon and Bannock following,
while Ornament was slowly dropping back, In
spite of the urging of Simms, and Taral had
brought Ogden up into sixth place. As they
swung into the straight for the last quarter,
the boys were all at work. Voter had now
assumed the lead, passing Sunny Slope, who
had had enough of It, while the .:" Westerner,
Typhoon, had taken second place, and Taral
had brought Ogden up into fourth place.
Down to the fifth furlong post they thundered
in the drizzling rain, and now Typhoon was
the leader, with Martin watching Voter, who
was second and riding with one hand. But Jie
had not counted upon Ogden, who was coming
along the rail under Taral's fierce urging, like
a whirlwind, and before Martin knew it, the
race was over, with Ogden the winner. Voter
got third place, and Ornament was fifth. It
was a fine victory in fast time, and well run
from a very bad start. Summary:
First race, selling, five furlongs— Scarf Pin
won, Don Bias second, Hldaddy third; time,
1:01. Second race, one and one-half miles, on
turf— Keeman won, Marietta second, Damten

SAVES HIS NECK.
W. W. Erwln on the Trial of Dor.
™ W \3- wln - wh ° has been at Glen
-5? c*e * * ef , endln e Dorman Musgrove, in
dicted for the murder of Sheriff Rog
ers, returned to the ctty yesterday-
Mr. Erwm said that his client should
have been acquitted, but the jury did
not take the same view of the case
and returned a verdict of murder in
the second degree. This saves Mus
grove's neck, and he will, under the
law, get a life sentence in Stillwater
Cinq-mars, who was indicted with
Musgrrove for the same offense will
not have a trial until November and
then it will come off in another county
A motion was made by Mr. Erwin for
a change of venue, and, while the mat
ter has been taken under advisement
by Judge Cadwell, there is little doubt
but that the change will be granted
One reason given by Mr. Erwin for
thinking that Cingmars will be al
lowed a change of venue is that it
would save the county money to have
the case tried elsewhere. In securing
a Jury for Musgrove's trial 250 Jurors
were summoned before the twelve men
were selected. Cingmars' trial would
result in at least twice that number
being summoned to act as jurymen
and the expense would be very great'
By taking the case to another county
for trial the trouble in selecting an
unbiased Jury will be lessened and the
expense necessarily much less For
this reason, if no other, Mr. Erwin
thinks the change of venue will be

VISIT Of fjtf CZAR
PROGRAMME WILL NOT BE AL
TERED ON ACCOUNT OF LO
PURELY A FAMILY AFFAIR.
NO STATE AFFAIRS INVOLVED IN
THE CZAR'S VISIT TO DARM
WAR ON AMERICAN WHEELS.
German Manufacturer* Are Much
Alarmed at the Popularity
Achieved In Berlin.
BERLIN, Sept 5. — The great parades
preceding the big fall maneuvers have
fairly begun. The emperor and the
king of Saxony on Thursday reviewed
the Saxon army corps, numbering
50,000 men. The men compose the east
during the maneuvers.
With regard to political features and
the meeting of Emperor William and
the czar, Prince Hohenlohe, the im
peilal chancellor, has officially an
nounced that the death of the Russian
minister of foreign affairs, Prince
Lobanoff-Rostovsky, will not alter the
programme. But, nevertheless, sur
prise was excited when Prince Hohen
lohe arrived on Thursday in Berlin,
instead of proceeding direct to Bres
lau from his Russian estates as ar
ranged. The visit of the czar and czar
ina to the latter' s former home at
Darmstadt has been fixed to take place
from Octi 3 to Oct. 17. It will be a
purely family gathering, with a visit to
the opera and receptions. After the
close of the army maneuvers Emperor
William is going to his shooting box
at Rominten and will remain there
from Sept. 20 to Oct. 7, passing the
time away in deer stalking.
Sedan day passed very quietly this
year. Some decorations were put up,
but business was not interrupted and
there were no big parades.
Bicycle manufactures of Germany are
greatly alarmed at the progress which
American wheels have made in this
country during the past few months
and they have adopted novel methods
in meeting the American competition.
Early this year one of the most prom
inent American manufacturers estab
lished an agency in Berlin and at once
found a large field for *his bicycles,
which were a revelation to the people
here, who have been accustomed to
the ponderous German machines. Prin
cess Hohenlohe and all the smart set
in Berlin bought American wheels,
which soon began to be seen on all sides
in Germany. The Americans, who were
heavy advertisers in all the Ge_ man
papers, were this week astonished to
receive notice that henceforth their ad
vertisements could not be received. The
fact finally developed that all the Ger
man manufacturers had entered into
an agreement that they would withdraw
their advertisements from any paper
accepting advertisements from Ameri
can bicycle firms.
The German sporting papers have
taken the matter up in the interest of
their countrymen. The Radwelt, the
most important cycling paper in Ger
many, has been particularly bitter and
appeals to Germans, as a matter of
patriotism, not to buy American
wheels. The paper referred to pointed
out that the German machines, worth
three hundred marks,- sent .to America
have to pay a duty of 105 marks, while
American machines of the same value
have to pay a duty of three marks in
Germany. It adds that the reichstag
will, at its coming session, be presented
with an irresistible petition to raise
the duty as high as America's and con
tinues: "But in the meantime, the
public must face the invasion of
American and foreign manufacturers
by sheer patriotism. But of what ma
terial these cycles are made every sen
sible man will easily imagine. The*
German industry has no fear on ac
count of price and good quality of their
materials of any competition. On the
contrary they are above any people as
regards solidity of their fabric and
cheapness." Thus the matter stands
at present but as the American firm
has contracts with some of the papers
which now refuse their advertisements
legal developments are possible.

that the position of Yon Hahnke at the

LI'S LAST DAY
In Washington Spent In Inspecting
the Treasury Department.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 6.— For the"
last day of the visit of Li Hung Chang
to the national capitol, a rather ex
tensive programme has been arranged,
but this was broken without qualm by;
the ambassador, who tires quickly of
sightseeing and seems to find more
satisfaction in personal associates with
his entertainers than in the wonders
of architecture or the paying tribute
to historical characters. The weather
was gloomy and threatening for one
thing this morning, when Earl Li rose
about dawn, and considering his strong
repugnance to rain, it was something
of an achievement for his conductors
to induce him to go out of doors at
all. Made aware by the newspapers of
the extremely early hours kept by LI
Hung Chang, several persons seized
upon the opportunity afforded by the
unoccupied morning to pay their re
spects, among them being the Por
tuguese minister and several officials.
The viceroy seemed to be in a most
amiable mood, but following his pecu
liar policy of doing all of the inter
viewing himself, succeeded in extract
ing from his visitors much more infor
mation than he bestowed. He also
made some of the officials feel uncom
fortable at times by embarrassing lead
ing questions, calculated to develop
their political intentions.
After the morning levee was over,
Earl Li consented to make a start up
on the day's programme, and about
half past nine, he was placed in a
carriage, and with his personal suite,
escorted to the treasury department.
The viceroy's visit to the treasury,
which occupied fully an hour and a
half, appeared to specially interest tha
whole party, and after a brief and
cordial welcome by Secretary Carlisle,
the viceroy expressed a desire to in
spect the many money vaults, and. in
company with the secretary. Treasurer
Morgan and Mr. Foster, the ex-secre
tary of state, the lower departments
were visited. The massive steel doors
of the gold, silver and bond vaults
were thrown open and the contents of
each explained. The viceroy's curiosity;
and interest were aroused, and hia
questions and their answers covered a
From the vaults, the party ascended
to the upper floors and visited the
issue and redemption divisions, where
the secretary explained the processes
by which the money for the nation
passed from the bureau of engravelngr
and printing and the mints into circu
lation. The viceroy seemed delighted
with everything he saw and on leav
ing the building, thanked the officials
for their courtesy. The presence of
the party In the building created the
greatest interest, and everywhere they
were followed by a throng of clerks
and others, who were bent on obtain
ing a sight of the distinguished China
man. Secretary Carlisle accompanied
the party to the bureau of engraving
and printing, which was next visited.
The sightseeing was, however, cut
short by a down-pour of rain. The
viceroy escorted Secretary Carlisle to
the treasury department, and then tha
entire retinue returned to the Arling
ton, which was reached at 11:45 o'clock.
