McGovern and Frank Erne Begin Training For July 16., This Should Be One of the Most Stubborn of Battles. ERXE IS CONFIDENT. But the Brooklyn Lad Will Prove a Tough One. For No Man Has Yet Knocked Fighting Terry Out. New York, July 5. Frank Erne and Terry McGovern, the little Brooklyn wonder, have started training for their ten-round bout scheduled to take place at Madison Square garden on July 16. Erne, the lightweight champion, has opened up operations down at Ked Bank,- N. X, while McGovern has re turned to Johnson's road house in Je rome avenue, where he has prepared for all his championship battles. This will be the opening bout of the Twen tieth Century Athletic association, and according to the ilstic experts it should result in one of the greatest glove con tests ever witnessed In the roped arena. In his battle with Lavigne Erne wore his opponent down for a number of rounds and had him in such a condi tion before the limit was reached that the battle was stopped to save the "Saginaw Kid" from a knockout. La vigne was. in the vernacular of the prize ring, a glutton for punishment, and it is on this contest that many have the belief that the champion will defeat his young Brooklyn rival. In comparing Lavigne and Mcuovern, there is much difference, especially in weight. Lavigne was a lightweight, and McGovern is only a featherweight. Still, the latter possesses many qualifi cations that Lavigne did not have when he fought his championship battle at Buffalo. Although Erne has announced that he is confident of success, McGovern has been silent. He has gone into training with the same air of confidence he man ifested before his former matches. Mc Govern knows he will have to be in good rhysical shape to offset his opponent s wonderful skill, and he will be pre pared. As jet there has been little betting on the result of the contest. Terry's backers are willing to wager all their money that their favorite will go ten rounds, but up to date no wagers of importance have been recorded. TURF SENSATION. Barney Schrieber and Steve L'Hom- medieu .Barred at Washing ton Park. Chicago. July 5. The stewards of the Washington Park club have announced that Earney Schrieber would be barred from the track hereafter, and would have to remove his horses, on account of the inconsistent running of Fly by Night, who won the Oakwood Handicap last Saturday, after having finished un placed among poorer horses on Thurs day. Schrieber owns Bannockburn, Fly by Night, Forte, Sofala, In Shot and others and has a big breeding farm in Mis souri. Steve L'Hommedieu, . the noted east ern plunger, has also been barred from the track, and a horseman named E. D. Morse was ruled off for using abusive language to the judges. A racing scandal of large proportions is said to be bound up in the action of the stewards, but they declined to make statement beyond the bare ruling. L'Hommedieu's connection with 'the case is not elaborated upon by the stew ards. Mr. Apperson declined to give any explanation of the plunger s part in the scandal. L'Hommedieu was not called before the stewards. SIDNEY LUCAS GAME. Attempted to Win Two Races in One Day, and Nearly Did It. Chicago, July 5. Wednesday's pro gramme at Washington Park had one of he most unique features in the history of western racing. It was the attempt of a colt to win two races in one day and in the latter event to concede weight to and beat the two best youngsters in the west next to himself. Richard Thompson, the owner of Sid ney Lucas, the American Derby winner, started the colt in the second race at one mile, and after he had won Jiis race sent him to the post in the Sherl dan stakes, just an hour later. Here Sidney carried 129 pounds at 127 for Sam Phillips and 12o for Advance Guard. It seemed preposterous to believe the colt could go the mile and a quarter route under such circumstances and the book makers made him the outsider in the betting at two to one. Advance Guard being the favorite at three to four, with Sam Phillips at seven to five. The race was a loaf for over hair a mile. Sidney Lucas being allowed to set the pace. On the back stretch Vittatoe on Advance Guard became alarmed about the lead er and sent the Canadian colt up. Sid ney Lucas and Advance Guard raced together at top speed around the far turn and to the entry to the stretcn. Burns did not begin his ride until he was almost ready to make the run for home. The result was a thrilling finish, pass ing the judges under a terrific drive. only half lengths apart, with Sam Phil lips leading. Advance Guard second and Sidney Lucas third. DAVE SULLIVAN DISQUALIFIED Hits Foul in 16 th Round of Tight "With Kid Broad. New York, July 5. Dave Sullivan of Boston was disqualified In his fight with Kid Broad of Cleveland at the seaside norting club in the sixteenth round. after one minute and fifty-four seconds of fighting. Sullivan struck Broad foul, and the referee promptly disqualified him. It was a deliberate foul and hurt Broad, who fell to the lloor in pain. The referee promptly sent Sullivan to his corner and announced Broad the win ner. It was a popular ruling. Up to this time the fight was about even. Baseball Notes. . . . The last three games between the Reds and Bostons were splendid exhi bitions of the national pastime. Mana ger Allen's men were again outbatted, but pulled two games out of the series by clever work at critical stages. "Hahn did not know that he was go ing to pitch Saturday until about five minutes before the game," said Manager Bob Allen yesterday in speaking of the great work of the young southpaw against the Bostons. Manager Prank Selee said that Hahn's work was the best that he has witnessed this year. There isn't a person in town who can do more with Waddell than Colonel Puiliam. He is his adviser for all that cornea along. Last night Rube felt gloomy. "Cheer up, Eddie." said the Pirates' financial man. "It's rough to lose," responded Rube, in sobs, "but I think that if I had a dollar I would feel better." Puiliam is Rube's banker only on the road, but he could not withstand the pathetic appeal and he gave up. Last seen of Eddie he was singing for a party of boarding house friends.

Wallace, of the St. Louis team, gets nervous when ever Peitz is out on the coaching lines. "I can't stand Tor his style of work," declares Wallace. "Ha is the most aggravating nolsemaker in the league." Several St. Louis players are trying to work off fines by good behavior that were plastered on them in New York recently. They kept themselves so busy chasing red lights in Gotham that Te beau was compelled to take away some of their assets. Since Heiny Peitz succeeded in rat tling Charley Nichols and nearly all the Boston infield by his coaching the Cin cinnati cranks want to see him unr.n the line all the time.

Woman at Atchison Says She Will Go Insane Without Them. Atchison, July 6. Mrs. Lillie Bratcher came to Atchison from Anndale, her business being to see her two children who are inmatesof theSoldiers Orphans home. The children were taken from her two weeks ago, and sent to the home. Mrs. Bratcher says her husband went to the war in Cuba, and she has never heard from him since, which does not much matter, as he never amounted to anything, or contributed to her sup port. Superintendent Hillis says that Mrs. Bratcher was keeping house for a widower at Lamed, and that the four children m the houses-two belonging to Mrs. Bratcher, and two belonging to the widower were sent to the home by the authorities. Mrs. Bratcher is without means, and almost hysterical about her children. Late last evening she visited the home a second time, carrying a little sack of candy for the children. She says she fell from a wagon two years ago, and hurt her head, and that unless her children are restored to her, she will go crazy. CHANGE OF PASTORS.

By the far-reaching genius of one man a secret that has been locked in the Missouri river's mighty bosom for ages Is about to be revealed. The yellow color that stains its watars and has given the stream its name, and upon which so much ignomy has been cast, will hence forth be looked upon by all men with awe and reverence, for, according to' one Kansas man, the Bis Muddy is nothing more nor less than a floating gold mine. S. W. Walchue is having a machine constructed that will wrest the yellow metal from the stream. The only thing calculated to cast a damper upon the enthusiasm that will be sure to fol low upon the announcement of the dis covery is the statement made by the inventor, that the gold may not be taken out in paying quantities for some time, but this trifling matter will doubt less soon be remedied.

Kansas City, July 5. As the delegates filed out of the hall after adjournment yesterday afternoon, tney passeu sena tor Hill, who for half an hour was the center of an enthusiastic personal greet- lne from individual delegates. At 4 clock the committees were not yet ready to report and another adjourn ment was taken until 8:30 p. m. It remained for the night session to bring the most remarkable demonstra tion of the entire day. Again tne great structure was invaded by thousands and the moving picture took on new eriories of color and animation under the glare of countless electric lights. For the first hour tne proceedings were ior- mal and profltless.but when, at the close I of the speech of permanent Chairman Richardson.he paid a glowing tribute to William. J. Bryan, the historic scene of Evan's nomination at Chicago was re peated, even exceeded, in a frenzied demonstration lasting half an hour. The state standards were wrenched from their sockets, and borne alort, a battle of supremacy was waged between the standard bearers, urged on py tne deaf ening applause of the entire shouting gesticulating multitude. Outside of the proceedings of the day interest was centered in action of the platform committee. As the evening advanced it became known that a de termined struggle was in progress in volving not only the question of incor porating a specific 16 to 1 declaration in the party declaration, but to some ex tent involving the desires of jthe possible nominee as to the terms of the plat form. The conclusion of Chairman Richard son's speech, which he had arranged un der 16 heads, was the signal for terrlllc applause and cheers. His mention of the name of W. J. Bryan brought the convention to its feet in a frenzy of excitement. Delegates sprang upon their chairs, waving bats. handkerchiefs and umbrellas in the wildest fashion. By a common Impulse t" pples bearing the names of the states . re torn up ana tnrust. into tne air. Then down the aisles toward the speak er's desk came groups of delegates sur rounding one man who held the name of the state aloft. Texas and New York became engaged in a rivalry as to which should hold the name of the state highest in the air. The Lone Star state had the advantage Little Ben-Hur same quality smaller size STEWART BROTHERS, Distributor. . . at the outset, for the New York standard had been erasDed bv one ' of the small men of the delegation.

Wild with excitement, the Texans grasped their man. rairt him nn their shoulders and New V r.r U wa rinwn 1 H n but as before it went down only to rise nigner. Richard Croker, Grady. Carroll and a half dossen others of the New York delegation came to Mr. Kellar'a aid and the emblem of the Empire state went up again nearer the ceiling by a foot than xcda uau ueen ame to reacn. While this trif wan coiner nn lwtwii the two states, the frenzy had taken hold 01 tne otner delegations, and from all parts of the hall men came plunging through the throns:. carrvinz- their state emblems. They became densely packed in front of the speaker s desk and yelling and cheering like maniacs, they strove to raise the name of their state level with that of New York. The effort was use less, however, and held firm bv the Tammany -men. New York kept its place. The Georgia men. wrourht ud bv their failure to equal New 'iorit, made a rush iur tne speaker s stand. They went through the crowd with a force that no opposition of the crowd before them could prevent, and pushing, shoving, clawing and cheering, they hoisted their man up on the platform and lifted him upon a chair. The effort was successful and New York was eclipsed once more. Kel- lar is no small man to hold aloit in a crowd of struggling, pushing men. and the- Tammany crowd was nearly ready to drop with exhaustion, but a glance at the Georgia banner brought new strength into ineir wearied arms, and new determina tion into their hearts, and Mr. Kellar went up still higher, and New York was on top once more. The convention by this time was in a frenzy of excitement. A , delegate from Hawaii, carrying their large banner. came down the aisle, followed by a shout ing moo wnicn bore all Deiore it. Tne band struck up "The Stars and Stripes'" and to those inspiring strains the men commenced to march around the floor. yelling like mad men, waving everything that could be lifted Into the air. Hats, handkerchiefs, umbrellas, state emblems, banners and national colors were uniteM Into a conglomerate wave and beneath it marched tne crowd 01 men talrly oeelde themselves with excitement. W ith flushed faces, down which the perspiration rolled In streams, many without coats and vests, they went round and round the hall, shouting, yelling and screaming at the top of their voices, those of the delegates who did not ioin in the march lent most effective aid in in creasing the uproar. They could contri bute nothing but their voices and fhetr jiats anu iianuiierciimLs. uui mey used the first as though they were made of brass, and originally designed for one night's wear only, and the latter two in a manner fully as energetic. The band did its share, and the tooters of horns, and the beaters of sheepskins worked away for dear life. Nobody knew what thev played nobody cared. They were doing their tun snare ana tnat was aji mat was necessary. After the excitement had continued fif teen minutes Chairman Richardson at tempted to bring order out of the chaos that ruled on the floor: Now and then the patter of his gavel could be heard. and every time the sound reached the ears of a delegate he shrieked the louder. Time after time tne cnairman attempted to restore quiet, but he was utterly lost and overwhelmed at each fresh effort. Precisely twenty minutes after Chair man Richardson had mentioned the name of Bryan, wnicn, UKe tne waving 01 a magic wand, nad conjured up a scene or such wonderful enthusiasm as has seldom been witnessed In a political convention. he began to rap for order; but the dele gates were not yet ready , to yield the floor even to the chairman of the convention. The band in the gallery started a natri- otic air. and. despite the continuous ef forts of Chairman Richardson to restore order, the demonstration continued for nine and a half minutes longer, its total length being twenty-nine and a half min utes. Order then was sufficiently restored to enable the chairman to recognlae J. G. Johnson, .of Kansas, who made a motion that the convention adjourn until iu:30 a. m. todav.

The Tribune says: As a result of the celebration of Inde pendence day with firearms, toy cannon, giant crackers and other forms of ex plosions, thirty persons were killed and 1,325 injured, according to reports re ceived from 125 cities. The toy pistol and the toy cannon are shown to have done as deadly execution as sometimes has been done in war by those loaded with bullets and canister and aimed to kill. Sky rockets, anvil and powder explosions and the premature discharges of Fourth of July cannon help to com plete the list of mishaps. In several instances, persons were killed through runaway accidents, due directly to fireworks. A Are loss of J123.325 was caused by the fireworks in addition to the injury to numan lire.

The fashion of blowing up money by means of Roman candles and skyrockets seems to have become unpopular and last night in the residence portion the fireworks shot off would not have filled a clothes basket. It used to be that on Fourth of July night Topeka avenue and Harrison street would be ablaze with fireworks. Last night a few lonesome skyrockets wandered upward and the balls from the Roman candles played ante over the barns. The weather was not good for fireworks. The air was damp throughout the evening and the colored lights which burst from the skyrockets were able only to flicker a moment and die out. On Kansas avenue a few mer chants burned what red lights they had left over and fired a few rockets but that was all. Most of the celebrating was done with firecrackers and re volvers.
