Julian stated this evening that he h.ad
just telegraphed an acceptance of Dan
Stuart's offer for a finish fight between
Corbett and Fitzsimmons for a $15,000
purse. He has sent a similar telegram
to Corbett. Julian says his reason for
accepting this offer in preference to
offers for a larger purse is that Fitz
simmons desires to fight to a finish.
Stuart offers to place the enti-e purse
in responsible hands and to name the
time and place when ihe articles aie
signed. If the match is not brought off
at the time and place specified, each

FI LTON THE NEW CAPTAIN.
Minnesota Eleven Return From
Kansas in Excellent Spirits.
Shake hands with Capt. "Two Bell"
Fulton, was the greeting a crowd of
Minnesota students received last even
ing in Minneapolis as their pets, the
football team, alighted from the Kan
sas City train of the Milwaukee road.
It proved to be a fact and thus the
slates made by those "on the inside,"
are knocked to pieces. It was expected
that either Finlayson or Loomis would
be the man chosen to guide the eleven
to victory next year, but the players
evidently knew what they wanted and
elected the big 225-pound center as
their leader. "Two Bell" was a much
abused member of the second team,
and a very poor "sub." At least that
was what most people thought. Fin
ally, about two weeks before the Wis
consin game last fall, somebody dis
covered that Minnesota's center was de
cidely weak. It needed weight and the
only man in sight was big Fulton. So
"Fin" was moved over to right guard,
and Fulton went in at center. It proved
a star combination. The story of how
Fulton played horse with the mighty

be remembered. Since that time Ful

The boys arrived from the state of
Populists, feeling in first-rate spirits,
with few injuries and those very
slight, and with loud praises for the
hospitality of the officers at Fort
Leavenworth, where they were enter
tained on Sunday. Saturday evening
after the game the team went out of
training and indulged in a banquet at
the hotel. A good time was the order
of the evening. Every man had to
make a speech including the subs. A.
J. Boardman was present, as were the
officials of the game and it was voted
a huge success. The team left Leaven- !
worth Sunday night. The election oc
cured on the train.
With the close of the season there j
comes speculations as to the team of
next year, although the recent story
that President Northrop was after the I
game and was going to stop it if re
forms were not made, may put a dam
per on the men and the general enthu
siasm. Thu story is of such startling
nature that the men do not know what
to think of it, and want time to think i
it over. If they had committed any dis- |
cretions they will be most willing to i
rectify them for the good of the sport I
and the college. Football players are
not such bad fellows after all.
WHY THE ODDS WEHT UP.
A. J. Boardman "Bulled" Kansas j
City's Football Market.
A. J. Boardman, of Minneapolis, seems to
have been cutting a wide swath in Kansas
City during the recent visit of the Minnesota
university football team to that city. The
Kansas City World of Saturday morning says
that he walked into the Coates house the '
night before and made a little speech. "I I
am from Minneapolis," he announced, "and !
the Minnesota football boys are down here,
far from home. I just want to make them
feel as if they still have some friends. I
am not a betting man generally, but I wish
to say that if there is any one here who wants
to bet on the Kansas City team, I will ac
commodate him, from $5 up as high as he
wants to go. Now, all you Kansas men
ccme right ahead."
No one responded to this invitation and
after waiting a few minutes, he made another
little speech, which he wound up with the
announcement that he would bet $25 to $100
that Kansas did not score. This bet was
promptly accepted by a Kansas City man who
boards at the Coates house.
The Minnesota boys who wore in the cor
ridor cheered Mr. Boardman by giving their
college yell. Mr. Boardman made several
bets on the Minnesota team, and his con
fidence in the boys from his state jumped the
odds up two to one on the Minnesota team
After the game Mr. Boardman spent his
winnings in a supper for- the team.

Another scalp dangles from the belt of
Aldrich. It is Poland's, and was captured in
their game at Foley's last night. He had the
hardest fight that was given him so far in the
series. The play was strong and fast from
the start by both. When the 150 mark was
passed, Poland had one billiard the best of
it, and after this, one or two slip-ups, together
with strong, steady work by Aldrich, lost
Poland the game by 33 points. It was in
every way the best game so far played. Aid
rich doubled six times, his best being 23, 15
and 14. Poland had five doubles, with 24,

LOYfIIiTY OF SGOTS
IT IS THE THEME OF BISHOP
GILBERT'S £T. ANDREWS
DAY OF THE SAINT MARKED
BY SPECIAL. SERVICES BY THE
SOCIETY AND THE BROTHER
WHICH BEARS HIS HOLY NAME.
Two Interesting Progroinne« Hake
Merry and Profitable the Ob
servance of the Day.
The Brotherhood of St. Andrews,
Lcxral Assembly No. 32, observed St!
Andrew's day yesterday in Its annual
meeting and religious services at Christ
The work of the order is annually re
viewed and the results commemorated
in religious observance. The order was
represented by over seventy members.
Rt. Rev. Bishop M. N. Gilbert delivered
the chief addresses of the sessions and
presided over the business sessions.
The Brotherhood of St. Andrew is a
religious order under the authority of
the Episcopal church. As the name
implies, it is composed purely of men,
and the object declared in its consti
tution is a betterment of the moral
standing of fellow men, and the ex
tending of sympathy and brotherly love
in all times of need. The brotherhood
is a comparatively new organization.
In 1883 a band of twelve young men or
ganized themselves at St. James'
church, in Chicago, for the purpose of
offering daily prayer for the advance
ment of the kingdom of Christ among
young men. The movement rapidly
spread, until now the association num
bers thousands of members who are
scattered throughout the country. An
nual conventions are held and each
year the reports are more gratifying.
The first services' were held yesterday
afternoon at 5:15 ' o'clock at Christ
church. After prayer and a short re
ligious observance, Bishop Gilbert,
president of the brotherhood, delivered
the opening address. Other addresses
were delivered by Benj. B. Beardsley
upon "The Past Year;" "Headquarters
Room," by W. S. Gilliam; "Self Denial
Work," by Hector Baxter, council
member for the Northwest; "Work
Among the Boys." by E. Freeman;
"Our Day in Chicago," by H. A. Hage
mann, and others. The reports of the
various officers were also read. At 6:30
o'clock supper was served in the guild
room, and it was the original intention
to listen to toasts by several of the
clergy, but owing*! to the lateness of
the hour, this feature was omitted.
An election of officers was held with
the following result:
Officers— Rt. Rev. M. N. Gilbert, president;
Benjamin F. Beardsley, first vice president;
Rev. H. M. Hood, second vice president; W.
S. Gilliam, secretary; S. C. M. Appleby, treas

Phillip's church; H. A. Hageman, Ascension

At 8 o'clock the religious services
were continued in the church, led by
the bishop. An address was delivered
upon "Brotherhood Responsibilities" bj
Rev. E. M. Hood. Rev. E. P. Chitten
den followed with an address upon
"The Life and Example of St. Andrew."
Rev. Mr. Chittenden told of St. An
drew's devotion to Christ and of his
modest and steadfast character. St.
Andrew did not himself appreciate his
worth and did not intrude himself upon
the notice of his fellow men. Drawing
an example from the life of St. Andrew,
the speaker exhorted the members of
the brotherhood to follow the sainfa
example and work "among their fellow
men with simple and unassuming sym
pathy and love. Hundreds of men In
the city never knew what it is to feel
the warm clasp oJE the hand, and to
hear a word of genuine sympathy and
personal interest. St. Andrew attempt
ed to do as much good as he coula,
at the same time jinking his person
ality. He never that He

acquaintance with the head miller or
one of the large flour manufacturing
concerns of the state. The man was
unknown to the World. He worked
among the gloom and dusfDf the great
mill, yet he was the hidden life of the
institution, the master of its mysteries.
So it may be with every man, he said
Each tr^mber of the order might be a
hidden force in the every-day life
among men. The speaker advised his
hearers to eschew formalities and
mathematical calculation in summing
up their religious achievements, and to
I calculate their services only through
■ the amount of love and sympathy they
Bishop Gilbert, in opening his s<?r
--! mon, said the meeting had been one
; of the most uplifting of his experience.
■ He believed the brotherhood had been
i elevated upon a higher plane, and that
I it would never sink below the level,
it had gained. It had been a rejuvena
j tion, a recharging of the battery of
! brotherly love. God, he said, had
j stored up in the hearts of men, great
j reservoirs of sympathy, and it needed
only the rolling away of the stones
frcm the doors to electrify humanity
! with the flood of love and tenderness
| which would rush out.
Bishop Gilbert said the beginning of
j the new Christian year should be an
epoch in the life Of every conscientious
churchman. St. Andrew's day closely
conjoined the first Sunday in Advent.
The two synchronized and made each
significant to the other. St. Andrews
day signalizes a revival of the mis
sionary spirit which governs the
brotherhood. Every s member of the or
der, if he is conscientious, feels this
i instinctive reviv.&l <?f spirit, but if he
joined the order .merely because a
friend did, he -long since tired of his
Speaking for the f Scots, the bishop,
said that steadfastness and loyalty
was a national ferart. It had shown it
self in hundreds of, ways. It had dis
played itself on, battle fields in every
land. No one ever fheard of a Scotch
man who denjeri country. The
bishop illustrated hte interpretation of
steadfastness" bf telling the story of
Bull Run in wh^ch T^en. Thomas Jack
son received the'Tiagje of "Stone Wall"
as a trbnte to steadfastness and
loyalty. The speakers closing words
were, "Be steadfast, be firm. Remem
ber that if you win, someone else will
win; that if you waver and fail, some
one will fail with you."
ST. ANDREW'S SOCIETY, TOO
Celebrate* the Xlnetecnth Anniver
sary o; the Ortl-M.
Two events were celebrated by the
members of St. Andrew's society at
Central hall. Sixth and Seventh streets,
last evening, when an enjoyable enter
tainment was given in commemora
tion of the nineteenth anniversary of
the local St. Andrew's society and the
birth of Scotland's patron naint.. It
was a genuine gathering of clana, and
the Scottish-American citteena of St.
Paul were present in large numbers.
A well-chosen musical programme had
been prepared for the occasion and
its rendition was a genuine treat to
the audience, especially as the num
bers In general were of a national
character, and in several instances
rendered in the Scotch dialect. Fol
lowing the musical entertainment,
there was a social hop, after which
the guests partook of supper, served
by the ladies of the society.
The first feature of the evening was
the public installation of officers re
cently elected for the ensuing year.
The obligations of office were to have
been conferred by Retiring President
Hoatson, but illness compelled his ab
sence, and the consequent brief cere
monies wera conducted by John Grant,
who installed the following officers:
President— J. H. Ritchie.
First Vice President— W. F. Myron.
Second Vice President— Thomas Cameron.
Corresponding Secretary — James Drummond
Financial Secretary— James Beddie.
Treasurer— A. Cattanach.
Attorney— J. L. MaeDonald.
Physician— Dr. William Dinwoodie.
Trustees— William Kennedy, Lawrence Hope
The speaker of the evening was Rev.
A. B. Meldrum, pastor of the Central
Presbyterian church, who waived for
malities and entertained his auditors
with stories and incidents of the Scot
tish character. In the course of his
remarks, Dr. Meldrum took lan Mac
laren quite severely to task for his
recent assertion in this city that the
Scottish humor was heavy, dull and
lacking in fun. In the opinion of the
speaker, the Scotchman's wit was of
the most subtle nature, lacking the
caustic characteristics of the American
article and in its sallies adhering te
naciously to truth. Illustrating his as
sertion, Dr. Meldrum told the story of
a Scotchman who was found dead, and
of whom an alleged witty American
had said, probably demised as the re
sult of a joke endeavoring to penetrate
his brain. An old Highlander, over
hearing the remark, is said to have re
torted that, if such was the case, the
post mortem would establish the fact
that it was an American joke which
caused the fatality. Another story was
of an American who concluded a tirade
upon the characteristic ability of the
Scotch to appreciate a joke by rehears
ing to one of that nationality a tale to
the effect that there were trees In
America which required three men to
see the top branches. The Scotchman
did not smile and the American at once
took him to task for being unable to
appreciate the fun in the immediate
"That is no joke," said the Scot.
There is no fun in it; it is nothing
but "a dom lee."
Scottish songs and poetry were also
cited by Rev. Dr. Meldrum as evi
dences of the characteristic humor of
the people and in contradiction to th<»
statement of lan Maclaren but th-*
speaker admitted that "a mean Scotch
man was the meanest man on earth."
Of the musical numbers, each was a
performance of merit and entertaining
to such a degree as to call forth de
served encores, but probably, the most
unique number was an instrumental
trio by Messrs. Horn, Myron and In
gTam, respectively playing the flute
violin and piano. They rendered a
Scotch reel in so lively a manner as to
stir the audience to cheers and loud
applause. In fact, the music was so
inspiring that J. H. Ritohie, the newly
installed president, left his chair and
being joined by John Grant J C My
ron and W. F. Myron, danced as pretty
a reel as one could see, much to the
amusement of the audience
The singers of the Aeolian quartette

pleasing harmony rarely excelled by

CITTIXG COAL RATES.
It Can Be Boutfiit Ifelow the Mar
n ™£2* 7 1 haS , n<>ticed any unusual
number of coal carts rushing araund
St Paul during the last few days de
spite the fact that the weather has "been
playing right into the hands of the
coal trust. And whenever a coal
wagon has been seen it did not mean
that some poor consumer had been
forced by the cold weather to pay the
combine rates for the article. People
have been aa determined not to buy at
the exorbitant price demanded by the
Eastern trust through their St Paul
agents, as is the trust in determining
to hold onto its product unless it can
exchange it on a basis of fortune for
fortune. But the local merchants can
not pay rents, etc., if they do not sell
some coal; or, if they can, they prefer to
do some business at a smaller profit
than to do no business at a larger one.
So that it is possible for a man to go
into the market and buy coal less than
$8.35 a ton or even less than $8 a to a.
"I will sell you a ton or two of coal,"
said a merchant to a reporter for the
Globe yesterday, "for $7.75 a ton. I
will sell It to you because I know you.
I am not holding up the price for any
body who wants coal except to the peo
ple I don't know. All the other agents
in St. Paul are doing the same, except
one company, and that company, I be
lieve, is maintaining the market price.
But every other flrm in the city is cut
ting rates and we are doing the same
to our friends. The price will probably
go down in a few days."
FOURTH CL.4SI p. M.'S,
First Convention Will Be Held Here
The Minnesota, branch of the pro-
I posed national organization of fourth
class postmasters is now preparing for
its first state convention, which will
open at the Merchants' hotel at 10 a.
m., Wednesday, Dec. 9. Prominent
speakers are being invited to address
the convention, and steps will be taken
to perfect a state organization, suitable
resolutions adopted, and action taken
to interest Minnesota congressmen in
pressing the Cummings and Hardy bills
to their final passage. The postmas
ters will soon have a national organi
zation for the permanent protection of
their interests, and the improvement of
the public service. As it is extremely
i difficult for the majority of postmasters
to get away from their work even to
attend a state convention, especially
those residing in distant counties, it is
necessary that every postmaster or his
assistant who can possibly do so should
make a personal sacrifice to be present,
and each postmaster absolutely unable
to attend is urgently requested to send
to H. G. Schram, assistant correspond
ing secretary, Cottage Grove, Minne
sota, a letter of regret, expressing
sympathy with the movement, and, if
not already a member, enclosing 25
cents initiation fee.
