— — Tiiey Go to Cedar Rapids Next
Nearly 000 people saw yesterday's ex
hibition game between the St. Paul league
team and the St. Paul Athletic club at
Lexington park, evincing a lively interest
in base ball for the coming season already
The contest was too one-sided to be
really interesting from the standpoint of
the score, but both teams played a brisk
fielding game, and while the league play
ers batted more freely, the youngsters
made a very favorable showing against
the older heads.
I lenrer was in the box again for the
local league team, while Charles Delaney,
Sporer and Swanson in turn pitched for
Marshall and Claytor tapped Roger for
£< <>d singles after two were out in the
lust inning, but they were too late.
.nrke put a short fly down safe, and
Geier lined om a clean one, afterward
Btealing second. Jack Murphy's error
gave Isbell a life, but he was prettily
doubled out when Marshall stopped Quig
ley's liner. Two errors by Marshall a
few minutes later, however, let in two
more runs, one of his misplays being a
bad throw across the diamond. That made
it three to nothing.
Mitchell hit safely for the Athletics in
the second with two out, and Quigley
gave Jahnke a life, but neither scored.
St. Paul, went out In order, Delaney pitch
ing some fine ones over, Denzer returned
the compliment, and In the third the
leaguers died with two on bases, on a
clean play by Mitchell from short.
C. Delaney opened the Athletics' fourth
with a good single, and his brother ad
vanced him a sack. John Murphy follow
ed with a good drive, but Mitchell went
out on a fly, and Jahnke fanned at a crit
After two were out Denzer's single,
Burkes double, and a wild pitch gave the
leaguers another run.
The Athletics went out one, two, three,
in the fifth, and Isbell's hit and steal,
with Clay tor's low throw and Delaney's
Wild pitch, with Preston's fine three-base
drive, scored two more for the leaders.
M. Delaney sandwiched in a hit be
tween three long flies in the sixth, but too
many were out for him to score. Ritter's
single, a base on balls for Denzer, and
Geier's single gave the Apostles another,
and they could have had more had they
thought they needed them, for Burke
was caught trying to steal home with
Isbell next at bat.
The lucky seventh belonged to the Ath
letics. Mitchell beat out a bunt, and
Jahnke repeated the dose. Jack Murphy
flew out to Burke, and Thompson forced
Jahnke. Then Denzer filled the sacks
with a base for Marshall, and Harry Clay
tor drove in two runs with a clean ground
hit over short.
A sharp double play by Mitchell and
Murphy helped Sporer to blank the league
That ended the run getting, save that
In the eighth the Saints went at Swanson,
who had superseded Sporer, and hammer
ed him for five hits, which, with a base
on balls and poor fielding support, made
seven runs, clinching the game:

Walters, of England, won in 1 hour 24
minutes and 43 seconds, lowering the rec
ord made in 1896 by A. D. Frost, of Lon

I'ncle Sam Still l)rn«in«- on the
Northwewt for Recruits.
Any one who wants to go the Philip
pines and try Issue with the dusky fol
lo-*i-rs of Agulnaldo will be given an au
dience upon application to Capt. E. P.
Andrus, who is conducting a recruiting
station in the Phoenix block. Although
the fipirit of Impetuous. phtrii&lsm which
the war with Spain aroused among peo
ple of all walks of life has in »..measure
subsided, Capt. Andrus has already added
forty new men to Gen. Otis' command,
and these are now on their way to assist
the campaign in the islands.
Nearly a month ago, by special order
of the war department, recruiting sta
tions for the Philippines were established
in a dozen or more of the principal cities
of the country, and a regular army offi
cer assigned to have charge of the work
of enlisting new men. Capt. Andrus was
at the time assigned to St. Paul, and by
the end of the week he expects to have
swelled the total number of men enlisted
at this point to half a hundred. This is
re^rded as an unusually good showing,
owing to the fact that substantially five
regiments have been recruited from Min
nesota since the opening of hostilities
with Spain one year ago. The four volun
teer regiments were distinctively Minne
sota regiments, and two-thirds of the
Third regiment was enlisted at St. Paul.
Capt. Andrus does not know just how
long the detail will be continued here,
but from the success of the station it is
quite likely that it will be made a per
manent institution. In fact it has been
stated by good authority as a probability
that Fort Snelling will be made the cen
tral recruiting point for the middle West.
All men recruited in the territory trib
utary will be sent to Snelling for equip
ment, and preliminary instructions in the
tactics before being assigned to service
in the field.
The physical requirements of candidates
for membership in Uncle Sam's Philippine
army are just as severe as those imposed
on all who joined the Third' regiment in
St. Paul. This, of course, has kept the
number of enlistments down considerably,
as fully a hundred have applied for en
The men have been sent to San Fran
cisco in three squads. Arms, ammunition
and all necessary equipments are issued
them there, and .they are given initial In
structions In the drill.
Capt. Andrus Is one of the senior officers
of the Fifth cavalry, and he speaks high
ly of the general quality of the recruits

tion to Bombard JiiNtii c Cham
lifps Criticised for Ills Coarse of
Action Pro vln tonal Government
Praised for What It Accomplished
—End of the Affair I'ncertain.
WASHINGTON, April 16.— A corre
spondent in this city for a German pa
per has received an interesting letter
from Apia concerning events there, as
viewed entirely from the German side
ot" the question. The letter begins with
a complaint that no regard whatever Is
shown by the British and American
forces towards the Germans. The bom
bardment had been announced to begin
Wednesday, March 14, at 1 p. m., but no
news, says the letter, was given the Ger
mans, and the German consul general
Is still waiting for the official communi
cation of the commencement of the bom
The commander of the German warship
Falke was notified by an officer of the
Philadelphia only a quarter of an hour
before the fire was opened. Nu
merous white people living in the vicin
ity of the town had no opportunity to
take any measures for their personal
safety and were not aware of what was
going on until shrapnel exploded in their
neighborhood. It is due, continues the
letter, only to a merciful Providence that
no whites were killed or wounded.
In Valiele, a cocoa plantation, belong
ing to a German trader, on the afternoon
of March 15, six shells rell just around
the house. One struck through the roof
of the veranda and rent asunder the floor.
The same afternoon three bombs were
thrown upon the Voca mountain, south
of Apia, where the French mission has
a school for native children, one shell
falling down close to the house of the
fathers and another exploding in the im
mediate vicinity of the house of the sis
On March 16 a shell flred from the Phil
adelphia exploded too soon and a nine
teen-pound piece of it was thrown Into
the building of the German consulate,
wrecking a part of it. This event, it is
stated, taught the firing parties to use
a little more caution In the future.
On March 16 a part of the town and
the grounds in the rear, the letter says,
were searched by an Anglo-American
landing party, strengthened by about a
hundred "friendly natives" under the
command of Capt. Sturdee, of the war
ship Porpoise. The expedition landed in
the Mataute quarter of the town before
the house of a wealthy French merchant,
and after a few almle volleys the Tahu
men occupied the house of the French
man and battered down, under the eyes
of the English officers, doors and win
dows, and, the letter asserts, helped
themselves freely to whatever from the
store they could In the hurry lay hands
upon. Then the grounds were searched,
though In vain, for Mataafa warriors.
The letter follows up this statement
with a bitter personal attack upon Capt.
Sturdee. It then proceeds to enumerate
the reasons that led to the establishment
of the provisional government, which, it
is said, was to remain in existence until
a regular agreement with the signatory
powers regarding the future form of the
political conditions of Samoa had been
brought about. The letter continues:
"In the meanwhile the provisional
government under the able leadership of
Mataafa had maintained such order and
security as under no former government.
Everybody felt sure of hl& life and prop
erty, the copra production in the country
commenced again, and there were signs
of prosperous times coming back to the
"On March 6 the Philadelphia, under
Admiral Kautz, arrived here, when the
fate of the provisional government was
sealed. Admiral Kautz did not think fit
to try to get a just picture of the Samoan
question by extending his inquiries as far
as possible. Chief Justice Chambers, who,
through his partial judgment, Is princi
pally responsible for the present troubles ;
the English consul, Maxse, and Capt.
Sturdee were his crown witnesses. On
March 11 a conference of the three con
suls with the admiral took place on board
the Philadelphia, when the German con
sul protested with due energy against the'
plan of the admiral to expel and com
pletely dissolve the provisional govern
ment and use to this end the whole force
of the men-of-war. In vain the German
representative explained to him that the
country was in a condition of perfect
tranquillity, and that there were no rea
sons why they should not quietly wait for
the decision of the treaty powers.
"On March 12 Admiral Kautz issued his
proclamation, and did not state in the
Samoan text that all consuls were agreed
as to the proceeding against the provi
sional government. The German repre
sentative firmly resolved not to have tbe
German war ship Falke participate in the
impending butchery and issued his coun
ter proclamation. The Mataafa men were
not allowed the least time for considera
tion. They evacuated Mulinu, the seat
of the provisional government, on Mon
day, March 13, but were shot on when
they, on Wednesday, had not left the
territory of the municipality.
"Among the victims of the present flght
there are three brave marines, and it is
a pity to say there are not more, though
most of them have lost their lives
through bullets of their own comrades.
"How the tragedy of Mataafa and his
followers will end is not difficult to pre
dict. If the governments of England and
America do not put, In time, a stop to
the action of their representatives here
they will have on their hands the blood
of a good-hearted people driven to death
and destruction in maintaining their
ancient laws and customs."
MADAM AT MONTE CARLO.
Tbe Striking- Success of an Unknown
MONTE CARLO, April 16.— Mrs. Mad
am, an American, has just finished the
most successful season of any woman at
tending the Casino here. When asked for
an interview, she at first refused to speak
for publication, but regained her equani
mity when asked: "Is it true you are the
biggest winner at Monte Carlo Ibis sea
son?" She replied:
"I have no means of knowing, but I
have done well, Indeed, but there were
some men punters who must have done
"I rely entirely upon chance. I have
no superstitions about where I sit, or
who is next me, or anything of that sort.
They are more fatal even than systems."
When asked how much she had won and
kept up to date, she said: "You might put
It down at $130,000, or thereabouts, but
I've been having bad luck the last two
sittings, and fear I shall lose It all If
I don't leave soon. My husband Is com
ing from England for me at the end of
this week. Then we return Immediately
to the United States. I wish he were
here today. I should have been between
$15,000 and $20,000 richer than I am."
SUES THE SALOON.
Michigan Girl Bring* Action to Re
ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 16.— Ruth
Marie Dexter, a girl four years of age,
living at Milan, Mich., has commenced a
$10,000 suit against Charles Schmltt, a
saloonkeeper, and Fred G. Hasley and
Henry Coe, his bondsmen.
The suit is brought under a peculiar
statute of Michigan. Her father, Thomas
F. Dexter, died a little over a month ago.
The declaration Bets forth that about a
year ago he began to drink excessively
and became a habitual drunkard, and
that this fact was well known to the
He continued to sell him liquor, until It
brought on his death.
It Is understood that another suit for a
like amount will be instituted against an
other saloonkeeper of the village.
FOEIS OF ALLIANCE.
Germans to Organize to Combat the
CHICAGO, April 16.-Get.man-Americans
of Chicago meet tomorrow night to for
mulate plans for the organization of an
association, national In character, and
having for Its object "opposition to jlu
Anglo-American alliarioe. Representatives
of all the German-American societies,
clubs and churches will be present.
The presiding officer- c-'f the meeting will
probably be Edward Rapp, editor-in-chief
of the Illinois Staats 'Zeltung. The meet
ing will form the outline of a national
organization. A memorial win be drafted
to be sent to congress, and other work
against the alliance will be commenced.
Editor Rapp said tonight: "The meet
ing will be one of the most remarkable
gatherings ever assembled in Chicago.
Every German-American association, no
matter what its nature, will be represent
ed by one or more delegates. We are go
ing to form a great opposition to those
Anglomaniacs who are shouting for an
offensive and defensive alliance between
the United States and Great Britain.
"We who have German blood in our
veins are aggrieved at the efforts being
made to antagonize the United States and
Germany. The two counties should have
the best of feeling the one for the other.
But there need never be a formal alli
ance between them. The United States
are strong enough to take care of them
selves. They need not go prowling about
looking for trouble in all parts of the
world. Should they pursue the "policy
of peace there would be no need of an
alliance of any sort.
"I do not believe that the trouble in
Samoa will injure our cause in the least.
In the first place there seems to be some
grave misunderstanding in regard to
Samoan matters, and until that is clear
ed up Germany may appear in a bad light.
But I am confident that it will come out
all right in the end, and that it will
be found that Instead of being in any
sense of the word an enemy Germany is
a sincere friend of our great republic.
"Our organization Is gding to try to
hasten the consummation 'of this general
understanding. We are i proud of the
United States and their, record, and be
lieve that we are strong and powerful
enough to do without foreign entangle
ments. We will have branch organizations
all over, the country, and' I am confident
that before another i congress assembles
all this talk of allying the United States
with Great Britain will be at an end."
REED REALLY TO RETIRE.
Speaker's Friends Say He "Will Not
Be in the Next Congress.
WASHINGTON, /Ap'rll 16.— Intimate
friends of Speaker Reed, say positively he
will not be in the next cpngress. They
declare he announced this fact to them
during his recent visit here after his re
turn from Jeykyll island.
Mr. Reed's desire to get out of congress
and into some more remunerative employ
ment has been known for some time, and
the result has been frequent stories of a
coming resignation, which were promptly
denied. Now the story comes so directly
as to make It at least probable.
It is said knowledge of this fact was
what Induced "Uncle Jimmy" Sherman,
of New York, to decline the place on the
board of appraisers offered him by the
president and decide to remain In the
house. In case of Mr. Reed's retirement
Sherman would be a candidate for speak
er, but he would never enter Into a con
test against Reed, as the two men have
been warm friends. & is believed Sher
man will have Piatt's. /support and an ef
fort be made to make him the Eastern
In case the big man from Maine really
does retire there will be a strong move
ment for a Western candidate, and Hop
kins, of Illinois; Grosvenor, of Ohio, and
Henderson, of lowa, would all be in tbe
field. There has been a decided feeling
of unrest among the Western members,
as they furnish the bulk of the Repub
lican majority. Of the thirty-four speak
ers regularly elected only four have lived
wesj^of the Alleghariies and north of the
Ohio, and of these Ohio had one, J. War
ren Keifer, and Indiana three— John W.
Davis, Schuyler Colfax and Michael C.
Kerr— so the precedents are decidedly In
favor of Illinois and lowa.
CITY RAN ITSELF.
Columbus Left for One Day "With No
Mayor at Its 'Head.
COLUMBUS, 0., April 16.— This city got
along today without a mayor as the- re
sult of a bitter fight between two fac
tions of the Republican party. After fif
teen years of Democratic administration,
Samuel J. Swartz, Republican, was elect
•ed mayor at the recent spring election.

CAIING IN A CAVE
RUSKIN COLONISTS PUT AN UNDER
GROUND CAVERN TO A
SOLID ROCK ARCHED ROOF
Spring Which Furnishes a Perpet
ual Supply the Source of the
Power When It Is Needed Sec
ond Cave Used for Storing* Celery,
Fruits and Rare Plants The
Origin a Mystery.
The unique socialistic and co-operativo
colony of Ruskin, which has been re
cently organized in the backwoods of
middle Tennessee, about six miles from
Tennessee City, owns, among other at
tractions, some great natural wonders
In the way of huge caves, which are not
only exceedingly curious and pisluresque,
tut useful as well, as, since their dis
covery, a few months ago, they have
been utilized by the colonists as a can
ning and vinegar factory and store
houses for canned fruits and their large
celery crop, the uniformly cool tempera
ture of the caves preserving the celery
perfectly for months, and thus enabling
the Ruskinites to bring it forth in the
spring fresh and delicious.
Imagine a railroad depot with solid
rock arched roof and walls about 500
feet long by 60 feet wide, well lighted,
for the entrance is high and wide enough
for half a dozen teams to drive in abreast,
and some slight conception can be gained
of the appearance of Ruskin's largest
cave. In the center Is a little crystal
lake, about fifty feet In diameter, with
water so clear that you can see the
stones plainly in the bottom thirty-five
feet below, for that is its depth.
SUBTERRANEAN WATER POWER.
This is the basin of a subterranean
spring, from which the water flows in
a comparatively large stream perpetual
ly, and which has been guided down a
wooden flume by the colonists to an over
shot wheel, furnishing power to a pump
that forces the water to the top of the
great limestone bluff In which this cave
is found, 200 feet above. Here is a great
Portland cement cistern, holding 1,300
barrels, connected by pipes to the print
ery of the colony, that would enable them
to flood the building in about three min
utes in case of fire.
There are various passages from the
main cave. One of them after going
about one-eight of a mile opens into an
other cave even larger than the first.
These caves have never been fully ex
plored, but a tramway has been built
some distance toward the second cave
and ample facilities have been found for
the storing of celery, gladlolas, cape
bulbs and other rare plants. The atmos
phere in these caves is remarkably dry
A short distance away from the big
cave, which Is used as a factory and
storehouse, Is another remarkably beau
tiful natural wonder known as stalactite
cave, because of the hundreds of won
derfully odd and curiously shaped crys
tal formations with which It is adorned.
This cave is located in the face of a
high bluff, and the view to be obtained
from Its entrance of the surrounding
country is most attractive and extended.
On last Fourth of July the colony gave
a barbecue and dance at the big cave.
Over 2,000 Tenncsseeans attended, and
over 1,000 were In the cave at one time.
The country people at first did not take
to the colonists, but as they learned to
know them better that feeling passed
away, and they are now the best of
friends. They bring their produce there
to sell and patronize the Ruskin store
and mills. They find fair dealing and
good articles at uniformly low prices.
One young Tennessean said recently:
"We wish there were more colonist?, lor
they have increased the valua of our
lond and pay the highest .jixjs in the
No satisfactory explanation .".s to the
origin of the caves has as yet been given
by the geologists of the neighborhood,
and their age, although uncertain, is rec
ognized as being very great. That they
were known to the Indians of prehistoric
times is proved by the discovery in them
of many unique stone arrows and other
crude implements of the chase.
A REMARKABLE COLONY.
Ruskin's remarkable caves are not by
any means the only objects of Interest
in connection with the settlement, as the
colony itself is entirely out of the ordi
nary. It has been founded on strict Bel
lamy principles and named after the
famous English essayist, art critic and
socialist. Its principles are far more
radical than those followed by the trans
cendentalists in the celebrated Brook
farm experiment fifty years ago. This
proved a dismal financial failure. Ruskin
is four years old, discounts its bills and
Is rated Al by Bradstreet.
The settlement lives as one great fam
ily, although each member Is furnished
a separate home. All take their meals
free at the public dining hall. School
privileges, medicines, medical attend
ance and laundry work are furnished
free by the association. Fire wood and
the repairing of shoes are also free. The
taxes are paid by the association, and
in the cases of rough outdoor work two
suits of clothes and two pairs of shoes
are also provided free.
GOVERNMENT BY THE PEOPLE.
Ruskin has a government of its own
direct legislation of the people. It has
its own system of money, a system in
which the standard of value is an hour's
labor. It pays the wife as much as it
does the husband and will support the
widow as it supported the man. In case
of sickness the maintenance goes on Just
the same as in health. The maintenance
is small at the present time, but will
grow as the colony grows richer.
Every one, old and young, in the col
ony receives a maintenance allowance of
so many hours per week. The adult re
ceives twenty-five hours and children re
ceive ten hours. Supplies can be obtain
ed at the general community store in ex
change for these hour checks. Nine
hours constitute a day's work, and they
have a Saturday half-holiday.

Michigan Landlady Compels a Man
to Beat Carpets.
NILES, Mich., April 16.— A tramp ap
plied for a meal at the Forler house yes
terday, .and promised the landlady, Mrs.
Charles Whitstone, he would beat carpets
After the meal was finished the tramp
refused to do the work, and started away.
Mrs. Whitstone grabbed a potato masher
and broke It to pieces over his head.
The fellow cried for mercy, and pound
ed carpets for two hours, while the
plucky woman stood guard over him.
