Murphy's Und Catching Responsible
for Defeat Phillips Outpltches

Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
MILWAUKEE, Wis., June 3. Indianapo
lis lost to-day's game through Murphy's
bad catching in the first Inning. He had
three passed balls, which let In three runs.
Manager Sharsig took him out after the
first Inning and put Westlake In to catch,
placing Murphy at short. Phillips pitched
a very nice game of ball, and he was well
supported in hitting, but the field work at
times was poor. Phillips himself drove In
seven of the Hoosiers ten runs. Newman,
the center fielder of the Milwaukee team,
won the game three times over. He made
a homo run in the sixth inning', driving in
one ahead of him, which put Milwaukee
one in the lead. In the eighth inning',
when the Brewers needed a run to lie, he
made a hit that brought in two runs, and
in the tenth, after Wittrock had got around
to third base, he lifted a long fly to cen
ter, scoring the winning run. Attendance.

There should le some place in the grand

be free from cUar smoke. A section should

out of it. There Is some complaint on this
Motz will have enough cigars to start a
retail tobacco business if he keens on hit
ting out home runs here. There are two
boxes of Cubanolas awaiting him at the
Kelfer Drug Company's ollice in fulfill
ment of the latter's agreement to give a
lox- for every home run on tna home
grounds by home players.
The Indianapolis team, will play another
game with Milwaukee this afternoon, with
Gayle in the box, and leave there to-night,
arriving home to-morrow afternoon in time
to meet Minneapolis Cross will pitch to
morrow's game here, and will need all his
curves to fool such heavy hitters as
Werden, Crooks, Hlnes, McGuIre and the
rest of the crowd from the Northwest.
Whoever is responsible for the "bunt" in
structions to the Indianapolis players
should learn to use some discrimination in
the matter. With Murphy on first and no
body out In the ninth inning, Saturday, it
was a i4ece of "very bad judgment for
Gray to attempt a bunt. He is a free and
hard hitter, and should have been told to
hit the ball out. Instead he bunted, and
the crowd expressed its disgust, not so
much at the out as the manner of it. Gray
is a hitter, not a hunter. Let some one
else attend to that sort of batting.
Prize of Hie Pnrls Jockey Clul Won
by Gosxiodnr.
PARIS, June 3. All the sporting world
of Paris went to Chantilly to-day to wit
ness the race for the Prix du Jockey Club,
the French Derby, for three-year-olds. The
money value of the race was 138,600 francs
($27,720.) The distance was a mile and a
half. The race was won by GosjKxlar. a
chestnut colt, by Gamin, out of Georgiana.
Toujours, a. bay colt, by Retreat, out of
Tototo, -was second, and Styx, a bay colt,
by Tristan, out of Slmonne II, third. The
post odds wen 16 to 1 against Gosnodar. 4
to 1 against Toujours and 5 to 1 against
There were twelve starters. Eglander
was first away, and made the running to
the rise, followed by Gouvcrnale, Toujours,
Lahire and Styx, in the order named.
When the rise was reached Styx was given
his head and he was soon in the lead. He
showed the way to the straight, but Gos
XHxlar here overtook him and. after a
short run. took the lead and was not after
ward headed, winning by two lengths in
front of Toujours. who. In turn, was two
lengths ahead of Styx. Gospodar and his
Jockey were attacked by a mob when they
were returning to the paddock. They were
protected from serious injury by the po
lice. Loud imprecations against the stables
of Mr. Cunnlngton, the owner of the win
ner, were heard on the turf and In the
paddock. Gospodar, although the favorite
for the Grand Poule des Brodults. a fort
night ago, ran unplaced In that race and
was beaten by Gouvernaie. His victory to
day, therefore, induced the. belief that he
had not been ridden fairly in the former
race. Mr Cunnington is an English trainer
and owner who has for a long time settled

Richmond "Will Hare Races.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
RICHMOND, Ind., June 3. Richmond
will have a race meeting this summer, and
that event is now being arranged for. Two
years ago the races proved a failure and
the association sustained a heavy loss,
since which time no attempt has been made
to hold a race meeting. The present
scheme Is backed by David Raybould, who
has hl3 horses In training here, and who,
with others, has guaranteed $4,500 of the
$3,000 necessary to carry the races through.
The citizens will subscribe the remainder.
Tho dates chosen are Sept. 18, 13, 20 and
21. Inclusive, and do not conflict with any
other association's meeting. The purees
will not be large, but will be backed with
satisfactory guarantees to Insure the pay

Republicans Will Elect Their State
Ticket-Legislature Will Be Close.
PORTLAND, Ore., June 3. Oregon, to
morrow, will vote for a full State ticket,
members of Congress and a Legislature
that will choose a successor to United
States Senator Dolph. The Republicans
have made a thorough canvass of the State
during the past six weeks. The Democrats
have not conducted an aggressive campaign
on the State ticket. The Populists have not
been Idle. Governor Pennoyer, who is an
avowed candidate for the Senate, has trav
ersed the State from one end to the other
in behalf of the Populists, making speeches
In almost every county seat. It is believed
the three-cornered contest will result fa
vorably to the Republicans, and to-night
there seems little doubt fiat nearly the
entire Republican ticket will be elected.
The Legislature will, in all probability, be
very close. In many counties the Democrats
and Populists have fused on the legislative
ticket, and the majority heretofore held by
the Republicans will surely be reduced, if
not overcome.
The Place the Bicycle Takes In Affairs
of the Kentucky Heart.
Louisville Courier Journal.
A pallor came over Arthur Trelawney's
face a pallor like unto the hue cast. by
Nile-green calcium lights upon the pale
pink grease paints of some olive-skinned,
ochre-gowned skirt dancer. For the impas
sive countenance of Honorla Mlfflt relaxed
in never a line of compassion as he told
his story and pleaded his cause with all
the ardor of a passion that burs the bar
riers of conventional speech like a Johns
town flood.
"Good God, Honoria Mlfflt!" Arthur Tre
lawney abruptly cried, clutching his collar
and desperately struggling against It for
more room, "can it be that you have noth
ing but silent disdain for a love that can
be laid at the feet of no woman more than
once in a lifetime?"
Then, as the ilgh of a faint and fitful
breeze among the silking corn in a summer
twilight, there was a stir among the cush
ions which supported the epirituelle grace
of Honorla Mlfflt, and Tier voice was as
the lilting rillet of running water, but of
water walled In immutable granite, as she
answered him:
"I am not lnappreclatlve of the honor
you do me. Mr. Trelawney an honor the
greatest which man can pay woman and
I should be unworthy such an honor were
I not , entirely frank with you.k-It pains
me to say It, but what you ask can never
be. But I shall always be a sis'
"Can't I hope to some day be at least
a cousin or a second cousin? Is there ab
solutely no chance?" and Arthur Trelawney
swallowed a great swallow such a swal
low as had he been drinking at the old well
of his boyhood would have seriously en
dangered the old oaken bucket.
"Absolutely none, Mr. Trelawney." And
there came into the eyes of Honoria Mlfflt
such a look of hard resolution as some
times comes Into the eyes of one woman
when she discovers that another woman
has plagiarized her new bonnet.
"Then," replied Arthur Trelawney, as he
reelingly grasped the folds of the portiere
and convulsively swiped them across his
moistening eyes, "It Is farewell forever--to
the poor dupe who has loved you as never
woman was loved before who even now,
heaven help me. worships the very air you
breathe, the very gTound you bicycle on."
And then as the funereal clock in the cus
tom house tower tolled the hour of eoleven
Arthur Trelawney was gone gone, Honorla
Mlfflt' shuddered to think, with a stern,
straight-to-the-canal look upon his petrified
It was scarce twenty-four hours later.
Arthur Trelawney, with that expression of
calm on his. features sometimes seen on
those of the corpse washed ashore after
long and fearful stress of storm, stood at
the intersection of St. Catharine and Third
streets. Out Third a disk of light was
cleaving the darkness toward him. "It Is
she," eald Arthur Trelawney; "I should
know Honoria's wheel among a thousand;
I should recognize her Inimitable wabble in
cummerian shadows, to which, kind Fate,
now mercifully speed me."
In another moment, as the safety of Ho
noria Mifllt, splitting the street wide open,
approached him, Arthur Trelawney had
cast himself before It, and as Honorla
Mlfflt shot on like a firefly in the darkness
the perturbed soul of Arthur Trelawney
had been cycling into eternity, not lingering
even long enough to hear the wall of horror
and doom set up a little further out the
street as Honorla Mlfflt and her bike came
down like an Assyrian centaur upon the
poor old man whose wife was out on
First street learning to ride a wheelj-the
poor, old man who was trying to cross
Third street with the seven children, in
order to find and ask his wife where the

They Can Safely He Left to Take Care
of Themselves.
Philadelphia Times.
The old and vexed question aa to what
shall be done with our ex-Presidents was
given the most satisfactory answer possi
ble when ex-President Harrison appeared in
the United States Court of Appeals at Chi
cago and was admitted to practice. He has
been delivering lectures at a California uni
versity, practicing law In his own State,
and his appearance to argue a case in a
United States court indicates not only that
he is finding plenty to do in a private ca
pacity, but that he is willing to lo it. Mr.
Harrison's answer to the question as to
what is to be done with tho ex-Presidents
is that they are able to take care of them
selves. Mr. Harrison Is not the first, but simply
the latest, of the ex-Presidents to answer
the same question in the same way. All
the Presidents who have occupied the ex
ecutive chair and Mirvived their terms of
office have either retired to private life on
their former accumulations or engaged in
their former professions, and the recom
mendation that they should be made life
Senators, retired on a pension or otherwise
provided for at the public expense, it is
safe to assume, was never inspired by any
occupant of the presidential otlice. The
Presidents of the United States, from
George Washington down to the present
day, have been self-supporting, self-respecting
men, thoroughly imbued with the
American idea of self-government.
No man big enough to be President of the
United States' needs support at public ex-
pense after the expiration of his term. He
Is competent to take care of himself, or he
could never become President, and the pub
lic notice his elevation to the presidency
Invariably carries with it should make it
all the easier for him to sustain himself In
private life. The idea that a return to
private life is a humiliation to the chief
magistrate of the country is absurd. The
President of the United States is "a citizen
and no more until his elevation to that
office. He remains a citizen upon the ex
piration of his term, and he needs no high
er position. The ex-Presidents have taken
care of themselves for more than a cen
tury of our national existence, and they
can be left to do so in the centuries to
como without injustice to themselves and
without any detraction from the dignity
of the country.

From the little prairie town of Washta,
Cherokee county, Iowa, there comes a
story of Poe-llke grewsomeness about a
gravestone that Is credibly said to show
on Its face the dimly traced features of a
murderer, the assassin of the old couple
whose remains lie buried underneath. The
marvelous likeness of this gravestone por
trait of the man. now that he is missing
after being suspected of tbe crime, has
aroused the prosecuting attorney of the
county to a vigorous search for him, while
the superstitious country folk thereabouts
for miles around are making pilgrimages to
the cemetery to see this wonderful manifes
tation of supernatural forces, for such it
seems- to be.
It is more than likely that this most re
markable phsycological mystery will be In
vestigated by those past masters In the
scientific pursuit of ghosts and other death
mysteries, the society for psychic research.
But la none of the blood-curdling reports
yet published has any psychic wonder had
so many elements of the phenomenal as
this one in Iowa.
The gravestone, a photograph of which,
with the human features mystically written
across its face, was made by a photogra
pher for the World, marks the spot where
lie an old German couple named Schultz,
who were murdered in their own home
in the middle of the night. They lived a
short distance from the town and were
staying alone In the house at the time.
The old man had brought home a few days
before a considerable amount of money,
which he had taken from a bank on ac
count of the panic. In the morning the old
folks were found, their heads split open
with an ax, and there were evidences that
there had been a struggle. The money was
gone. .
The murder created a great sensation on
account of its fearful details. There was
nothing to indicate in any way who had
committed it, but the neighbors suspected
that the murderer might have been W. S.
Florence, a hired hand who had been in
the Schultzs employ until a short time
before. A few weeks after the ' murder
Florence left that section and went to
Nebraska. As soon as he had gone the
stories began to gain more currency than
ever and the result was that detectives
were employed by the county authorities
to hunt him down. He was found and
taken back to Cherokee county. The
grand Jury examined him, tmt, for wanV of
evidence, discharged him. He promptly dis
appeared and has not been heard of since.
About the same 'time that the grand
Jury was engaged in the Investigation of
this case the relatives of the couple had
a plain marble headstone placed over their
grave. The grave was in a little country
burying ground, on the side of a hill, with
in sight of the house In which the murder
had been committed. Before many weeks
strange stories began to be told about It.
At first they were whispered about the
neighborhood, and the superstitious people
of the country side shook their heads wise
ly and often gathered In groups at the
roadside or at the village bfacksmith shop.
It ws said that the tombstone was slowly
but ' surely developing human lineaments,
Just as a photographer's plate, under the
action of chemicals, develops the lines in
the negative.
The first person to tell the story was an
old -woman, who had also been ,the first
to ' susnect Florence of the murder. It
was received with Incredulity, and even
those whose curiosity led them to go and
look at the stone declared that the picture
had no existence exceot in the imagination
of the old woman. But he Insisted that
she could see a picture there, and that it
represented the features of Florence.
From time to time the old lady declared
tfri lht' picture was growing more and
more plain. " At last she convinced some
nf hpr friends that they. too. could see the
I features of a man on the stone. The face
continued to grow more ana more aisunct.
and to be more and more talked about,
until it attracted the attentioa of the au
thorities. They inspected it. and the most
unprejudiced were compelled to admit that
thev could see the features of a mm. A
marble dealer was taken to. see It. He de
clared that tbe features were being devel
oped as a result of exposure to atmospheric
Influences of the rust and veins in the
stone. He said it would continue to grow
plainer, ...
This " prediction has now been verified.
The picture on the slab has become dis
tinct to even the most casual observer,
and to-day there is not a person who
knew Florence that does not declare that
the features show a startling, resemblance
to' His. v"'
What" is "equally prophetic is the fact
that since the picture" has been developing
on the stone and the suspclon has become
general" that Florence was the murderer
there has developed evidence not known
at the time of his examination before the
grand jury that points to the conclusion
that he was really guilty. The prosecuting
attorney of Cherokee said that he was con
fident that he could now prove the guilt
of, the suspected man should he be located.
But this seems to be now Impossible.
Florence has dropped out of the world,
apparently. It Is supposed that he has
heard of the strange developments and got
as far away as possible.
The American Display Good In Some
Respects Commercial Opportunity.
Letter In New York Evening Post.
Of the various national exhibits It is suffi
cient to say that the efforts of England,
Germany and France show the price set
on the Antwern trade by these countries.
In the case of France especially one would
not be far wrong In deciding that Antwerp,
to the commercial imagination. Is bigger
with '- market prospects than Chicago
Among the most satisfactory exhibits is
that of Bulgaria, where, as in all the
Danublan principalities, jngiana, r ranee,
Belgium and Germany are competing for
the local trade. It is a pity tnat tne American-consular
reports from these countries.
full as they are In general details, do not
descend to the particulars required by
American manufacturers if they should
ever turn their attention to markets so
widely open to them. Agricultural imple
ments already enter through the port of
Antwerp for the most distant aesunations
in southeastern Europe, Russia and A6ia
But there Is room for any article of Ameri
can manufacture which could be made to
compete in cheapness and excellence with
the products of western Kurope. And
'tt.ere is no reasoa why competition should
not be successful. In the case of agrlcul
tural Implements, the superior texture of
American woods and the cheapness of
American steel have wrought a noteworthy
change In the whole continental trade dur
ing the last few years.
The chief exhibit from the United States
has been organized by a private company
under the name of the American Propa

of the most prominent on the grounds. In
spite of its having been erected without
trovernment assistance, it will present.

machinery hall, a fuller display of exporta

has ever yet found a place in any European
exposition. This does not except the Paris
Exposition of lsy. wnicn cost tne American
arovernment no small penny.
It would be a long story to tell all the
reasons of the comparatively limited ex-
nortation of American machines to Europe.
In spite of their recognized excellence. One
principal cause of this failure to make the
most of American industry has undo'lht'Mly
been the Incompetent means employed for
making Its products known. Antwerp.
which is the most central distributing point
of Europe for this kind of meronanclUe (If
only from the absence of vex-itlous tariff
restrictions), gives a favorable ground for
such an exposition. The opportunity seems
to have been turned to advantage, nnd this
part of the exposition will bear separate
study from Americans who desire to ktiow
how far American industry can nnd profit
able outlets abroad. It is worth remember
ing in this connection that vhe part taken
by American manufactures In the yearly
exportation of the United States ias been
so far not quite 7 per cent, of the whole.
as against CO per cent, for agriculture. 23
for cattle raising and 10 for forests anc
mines. This, of course, goes to show the
Immense natural resources of our country,
But anything which may help to increase
the Industrial production or a nation that
can furnish a Coxeylte army is surely to
be welcomed.
Facing the creat entrance door of the
American building Is a rfaat ci. water
fountain, with .Its shining marbles t nd sll
ver handles for all the puzzling variety of
flavors. This certainly should excite the
curiosity of European visitors, although
this peculiarly American drink failed some
years since to win its way in German
cities. Further back in the same building
a firm of Philadelphia fcrewirs Fhow their
American product to those familiar with
the Belgian high fermentation, and like
their Belgian, German and English con
freres, they will have a-i-amnlinrf garden
on the grounds. In spite of the seeming
incongruity of giving: drink to those
whose thirst Is already ko well provided
for, there may be here the serms of a
successful commercial venture. The taste
and strength of American beer are as
different from what traveling Knglishmen
are apt to call irreverently H-lian swipes
as is tne soda water itself. English porter
and pale ale have had no difficulty in mak
ing their way into these beer-JriuKlng coun
tries, as may be seen from the quaint
names of the Imitations in the Belgian
section gold ale, sport ale, stout rational,
barley wine and Anglo-Bavarian pale beer.
Why Lieutenant Von Kmumer Went
Dock to Germany.
Washington Post.
Lieutenant Wllhelm Von Kumraer. at
tache of the German embassy, who left
here about three months ago, with leave of
absence extending until June 15, is not
likely to return on schedule time, and
through no fault of his own.
A well-authenticated report has reached
hero that Lieutenant Von Kumraer is con
fined in a German fortress for a period of
three months for having participated in a
duel, which pleasant German pastime, in
culcated with the sciences of the great uni
versities, so frequently deprived the army
of some of its best officers that the present
progressive Kaiser Wllhelm III issued an
edict against it early in his reign. It takes
more than edicts, however, to overthrow
the time-honored customs of a nation. Any
German officer who would snelter himself
behind the Emperor's edict when challenged
to fight a duel would be considered even a
greater coward, were that possible, than if
no edict existed.
Lieutenant Von Kummcr is a young man
of noble birth, wealthy, proud and brave.
Honor, as it is understood In the German
army, is dearer to him than life Itself.
He has already made some reputation for
himself in bravery and daring. In the fa
mous ride from Berlin to Vienna, a year
ago, a test for speed In horses and endur
ance In riders, In which many officers par
ticipated. Lieutenant Von Kumraer came In
eighth in the race, which was not so bad,
since the difference in time was very small.
According to the stories of friends who
have been honored with the confidence of
the Lieutenant, before coming to this coun
try he had a quarrel with the colonel of
his regiment. Before a duel could be ar
ranged, and supposedly to prevent such a
meeting. Lieutenant Von Kummer was de
tached from his regiment and given a post
with the American embassy. He came to
Washington last October, and for a few
months seemed to .be enjoying himself thor
ouphly here.
In the meantime the matter of the quar
rel had not been permitted to lapse into in
nocuous desuetude. Such affairs never are.
Friends of both .parties are ever on the
lookout to see that honor is maintained all
around. A board or court of inquiry was
formed, not official, but strictly personal,
and the Judgment of that court was that
Lieutenant von Kummer and his colonel
must settle their differences on the field of
honor. Lieutenant von Kummer did not
delay. Although he had been here only so
short a time, he applied for and obtained a
leave of absence and returned' to Germany.
About a month later Lieutenant Hesse,
military and. naval, attache, also obtained
leave of absence and followed his friend.
It is not known whether or not Lieutenant
Hesse was connected with the plan for a
Word now comes back to Washington
that the duel was fought with pistols, and
that Lieutenant von Kummer shot his
superior officer in the leg. The Lieutenant
was promptly, arrested, not for shooting his
superior officer, but for taking part in a
duel. In violation of the imperial edict. He
was tried and the verdict of the court was
that he be imprisoned within a fortress for
three months. '
Friends of Lieutenant Kummer in this
city must not feel too sad in thinking of
him undergoing his punishment. While he
may not go outside the fortifications, he
may enjoy himself as much- as possible
with his brother officers Inside, and there
are many ways in which such a sequest
ered life may be made very pleasant. It
is probable that he will return to Washing
ton at the expiration of his enforced ex
tended vacation. His romantic adventures
will serve to make him quite the lion of
the hour among the ladies of this city.
At the German embassy last evening
Baron von Saurma-Jeltsch, the embassa
dor, through his secretary, stated that
nothing had been received at the embassy
regarding such a duel having been fought,
and that no intimation had been received
tnat Lieutenant von Kummer would not re
turn on June 15, when his original leave of
absence expires. The Lieutenant's per
sonal effects are all. at the embassy, and
it is believed if he did not intend to re
turn he would have ordered them reshlpped
to Germany before this.
It was admitted that such a duel might
have been fought and Lieutenant von Kum
mer punished without the embassy being
notified. If he did not return by June 1
the embassy would surely be Informed of
the reason before that time; and if or
dered back to his regiment or elsewhere,
another officer would be sent to take his
Tho Tribute Given to the Memory of
Sirs. Martha J. Kimball.
Philadelphia Press. ,
The woman to whom the country owes
its Memorial day was not forgotten yester
day in the pleasant task of decorating the
graves of dead soldiers and sailors. The
resting place of that noble woman, Mrs.
Martha J. Kimball, in West Laurel Hill
Cemetery was covered with floral tributes
of all designs, . and thousands of people
looked at the little mound that contained
the body of a woman known to the soldier
as Is the name of Florence Nightingale.
So much interest clusters about the
memory of this noble woman that it is not
to be wondered that the services at her
grave were very largely attended. When
the stars and stripes were restored at
Fort Sumter she, the only woman present,
aided Secretary of War Stanton to pull the
flag to the top of Ihe staff. Every soldier
boy found In her a mother. Her gentle,
caressing touch calmed the fever of. the
wounded, and hundreds arose from the sick
bed and blessed her. No American woman
of her day. knew and possessed the confi
dence of so many great men as she. It
was due to this fact that Mrs. Kimball
was enabled to save the son of a poor
woman from being shot when others had
failed to influence President Lincoln.
Julius Simon, who was private secretary
to the late Gen. John A. Logan, delivered
the oration. Among other things he said:
"No woman during the war, nor since that
dark period of our life, is to be compared
to that sainted one. In every point of the
Union, devastated by cruel, crushing war,
that could possibly be penetrated by her,
she sought the dead, mutilated, wounded
and weak, to bestow her grand and wom
anly, tender-hearted presence upon a Union
soldier. No matter whether her health was
impaired or strength Inadequate, she went
wherever she could to save a soldier's life,
give him medicine and refreshments, cheer
him up In the trying hour of Illness and
fight his battles to send him home. She
was loved, respected, admired and regarded
by every one who was honored by her ac
quaintance and friendship. She originated
the idea of the day and of its fullest and
continued observance. In no spirit of con
troversy, nor in the slightest degree In
viting criticism upon the statements of oth
ers, but simply as an act of justice, per
mit me to say that the full and entire
credit of inaugurating Memorial day be
longs to Mrs. Kimball."
A Peculiar Collection.
Chicago Journal.
In Mrs. Potter Palmer's boudoir, whlch,
by the way, Is a superb though rather
sombre apartment, finished in ebony and
gold, is an exquisitely carved box, which
contains a copy of every picture ever
frlnted of the president of the board of
ady managers, from the finished photo
gravure of an official catalogue to the
crudest cut In a country newspaper. It is
an interesting though not very flattering
collection, for her picture has appeared in
nearly every newspaper in the world, and
while the majority are wretchedly repro
duced, yet in all of them is a curiously
striking resemblance to the original.
