' New York, June I.— The Spirit of the Times furnishes the following history of Iroquois, the Derby winner: Iro quois was bred by A. Welch at the Erden heim stud, Chesnut Hill, Pa., and was foaled in 1878. He "was purchased by Pierre Loril lard, on joint account by the brothers, with ten or twelve other yearlings. Among them were Blaze 3, Spinaway and Saunterer. The brothers subsequently divided the purchase, and Iroquois fell to Pierre Lorillard. He is a rich brown colt, with a blaze face, and near hind foot white above the pastern.-and about fifteen hands three inches high. On the 30th of August, 1879, he was shipped to Liverpool, and went from there to Newmarket. He trained into line shape early in the season, and ran with much success. At the Newmarket second spring meeting he ' won the Newmarket two-year-old plate from •even others. He was beaten at the Epsom summer meeting for the colt stakes by Lord Calthorp's Angelina, but at the same meeting h°. won the two-year-old stakes. At Ascot he was beaten by Mr. Leigh's Sir Charles, and at the July meeting was beaten by a head by Lord Falmouth's Balgal for the July stakes. At the same meeting he won the Chesterfield . stakes from Gothers. At the Sandown second summer meeting he was beaten by Lady Chelmsford for the Great Kingston plate. At Goodwood he won the Levant stakes from five others. He ran four other races, but he did not win either. His recent effort for the 2,000 , guineas, when he was probably beaten through mismanagement, by Peregrine, showed that still retained his previous high form. THE RACE. The scratching of Cfimeliard caused others to come to shorter prices in betting nt the start, which was even on Peregrine and four to one against Geologist. At ihe start Mar shall Mac Donald took a blight lead of Culaden and St. Louis. These three came on in line clear of Cumberland, Don Fulano, Town Moore, Geologist and Fortissimo. The next lot were Iroquois and Peregrine. On passing the mile post St. Louis, Tristan, Town Moore, Iroquois and Peregrine were prominent, with Don Fulano well up. There was little altera tion in position to Totterham Corner, where St. Louis was beaten, and Peregrine, after run ning against Geologist and nearly capsizing hini, took a slight lead. On entering the straight and at _ distance from the pole he looked like winning in a canter, but Iroquois came on with a rush, aud, heading Peregrine in a few strides, won cleverly, with Peregrine second, and Townsmoore third, followed by Schobil, Cum berland, Voluptuary Tristan, Lime stone, Geologist and Fortissime, in the order named, and others tailed off. The track was in good condition and very hard. The royal party present at Epsom included the Princess Louise of Cambridge, and the prince of Saxe- Wieniar. HOW IT WAS DONE. Peregrine's appearance gave general satis faction to his fanciers, and Iroquois seemed to be in the best of spirits. His action was much admired. After one break away a good start was effected. When the horses were first seen .it the top of the hill it was difficult to make out from the grand stand who held the advan tage, but coming down the hill Peregrine,who was on the inside, had a fair lead, and his friends began to shout, "Peregrine wins." As they turned the corner Archer's colors were pressing forward on the stand side. The two leaders ran an exciting race up to the grand stand, where Iroquois' nose showed in front, aud he continued to get in until past the judges' stand. The finisn was splendid. Marshal Macdonald was ordered to make the running for Don Fulano. He retained the lead for a quarter of a mile when he was joined by St. Louis The pair ran together to the mile post, where St. Louis took a slight lead. Marshal Macdonald, however, continued to keep close up until the corner was rounded, where both he and St. Louis were beaten. Vo luptuary then took the lead, but dropped back directly. Town Moore, Tristau and Peregrine now came to the front with Dou Fulano and Scobell next. Tristan was almost directly beaten. Peregrine and Town Moore ran in the order named to the grand 6tand, where Iroquois showed in front and continued gaining until part the judges' stand. Despite this Don Fulano did good running to and past the corner; the last five, in which he was in cluded, were beaten a long way. Details of the Race. New York, June I.— Cablegram: Derby day — as largely attended. Before the great race there was a sprinkling of ladies, and here and there the jockeys in bright colors lent an ad ditional plcturesqueness to that which is per haps the pleasantest and certainly the most peaceful portion of the great course. The norses, as they were walked about in the pad dock, were followed by a crowd of admirers, many walking alone with the horses, examining their points. Sometimes a favorite would be brought to a stand under a little group of trees in the center of a paddock, the shade of which was peculiarly grateful. It was here that the FASHIONABLE JOCKEY, FRED. ARCHER, qu'etly waited for the time when his American mount should be ready. The entire string of horses then performed tbe usual paddock parade, walking round the ring preceded by policemen. Iroquois, Geologist and Scobell were eagerly scanned and the remarks seemed unfavorable to the Yankee horse. One gen tleman audibly remarked, "Iroquois looked as if he would be easier beaten over hurdles then on the flat" The favorite, Pere frlne, did not join in the parade of the pad ock. After the parade came the preliminary canter on the course towards the starting point. Archer, who rode Iroquois, received a tremendous ovation on coming in to weigh. He rode in six races out of 6even yesterday, and scored four victories, including a dead heat for the maiden plate on Black Lilly, filly, besides which he ran second on Deer Wucher er and Dreamland for the Ashland stakes and the Welter handicap plate respectively. He now heads the list of winning jockeys this year with a total of fifty-two to his credit. His successes last year at a corres ponding rate were thirty-nine. When it was rumored yesterday he would not ride Iroquois the betting went from six to one down to nine to one, but it recovered immediately when it was known the celebrated jockey would ride the American horse. The AMERICANS WERE JUBILANT over the victorious horse and his no less re nowned jockey. Among those present were: T. T. Walton, St. James Hotel, New York; Capt. V. H. Hayne, Alexander Newburger, G. Slossen, L. 81ossen, John McCullough, A. H. Hummel, Pearl Icelinge (the last two named being guests of Bir Dastly Howland Robbins Campbell), Frank Uffner, Edwin Booth, Signor Peragini, Maurice Barrymore and wife, and George Drew. THE NEWS IN NEW YORK. New York, Junel.— The news that Pierre Lorillard's 3-year old colt Iroquois won the English Derby, was received in this city with enthusiastic expressions of pleasure in sport ing circles and at the clubs. At the Union Club Pierre Lorillard stood in the center of a crowd of 100 excited men, who congratulated him upon the ownership of the first American horse which has won even a piace in the Derby. A little before noon a party from the Union Club started for the Jerome Park races, Lorillard's carriage being DECORATED WITH BUNTING, was greeted with cheers from different groups of clubs and sporting men along the route. For some time past American and English critics have spoken highly of Iroquois, and consequently he has been quite heavily backed here . Twoweeks ago the Spirit of the Times said: "In considering the chances in public form we are nnable to assent to the idea that any English-bred colt ought to win the Epsom race this year nor last. No one of them has raised up to the form shown by Iroquois. His vic tory to-day will make him one of the most prominent favorites for the races at Ascot, and Goodwood, and will probably make him first favorite for the great St. Le^er race in autumn. lorillard's stake. Newtort, R. I. June I.— lt ib stated here Lorillard wins $2,000,000 on the Derby. BRITISH JEALOCSr. The Standard says: The success of Iroquois did not seem popular, and all the cheering was for Jockey Archer. The Daily Telegraph says: Whether Jockey Archer, Iroquois, or the Americans were most cheered it is difficult to say, but a more tremendous ovation has never been witnessed. NEWSPAPER COMMENT. The Daily Telegraph thus 6peaks of the American horses this morning: During more than a century no previous celebration of what Mark Twain calls the great cockney holiday has seen four American champions arrayed among the starters. Patriotism demands that the sy mpathies of Englishman should rest rather with Peregrine and St. Louis than with Iroquois and Don Fulano, but it fairly may be doubted whether it would not be to the advantage of the large and miscellaneous army of men who get their living off the British turf, that the American horse should win . This after noon Pierre Lorillard and Jas. R. Keene are both of them conspicuous for wealth and en terprise, and the triumph of an animal carry ing their colors would be the signal for a great transference of colts and fillies bred in Kentucky, Tennessee, New Jersey, Penn sylvania, Maryland, New York, or Vireinia, from the new to the old world. It would be, moreover, not a little significant of the in fluence produced by tßs.recent successful per formances of translantic horses in English races upon the value of thoroughbred stock in the United States, that a yearling colt has just been knocked down in the State of Tennessee under the hammer for 1,500 guineas, by far the largest price ever paid in America for a thoroughbred yearling. It is certain that American colU will henceforward play a more noticeable part in the two great 3 year old races in England and France. Already Keeue ha 6 a round reward for his spirited out lay, seeing that the Grand Prix de Paris ap pears to be at the mercy of his fine colt, Fox hall . Nor let it be supposed that love for thoroughbred horses is a taste but recently ac quired by what Gladstone calls our "kin beyond the sea." For at least a century and three quarters the finest thoroughbred blood of these islands has been transporfed westward across the Atlantic. Among the winners of the Derby the Americans have taken from us Diomed and Saltran, John Bell and Spread Eagle, Sir Harry and Archduke, Lapdog, Priam and St. Giles. The list of other famous stallions of Belgravian mothers which have also gone west, is as long as the Homeric cat alogue of 6hips assembled before Troy. The United States has spent an enormous sum in buying the best and finest of these animals, and when, as will sooner or later inevitably be the case, they meet with European success, let no grudging jealousies be interposed to mar England's gracious and cordial reception of the well-merited victory. The Times says: Iroqnois did not seem the least distressed at the finish. It may now be fairly admitted the Derby has changed from a national to an international affair. The News says: We shall not grudge tho Americans their victory, for they have shown great enterprise in sending thoroughbreds all the way across the Atlantic. The triumph of Iroquois was received with tremendous en thusiasm. Among the drags was one con taining John McCullough, W. J. Florence and other well known Americans. The Derby is not only a national but an international prize and of the laurels won by America will not be be grudged her by England. REJOICING.

Gerrard to the Front as an Entertainer. [Special Telegram to the Globe. J Lake City, Minn., June 1. — Excitement has been at fever heat to-day owing to a report" that Capt. Paul Boyton was to pass through the lake on his aquatic trip from St. Paul to Cai^o. The lake has been covered all day by every conceivable kind of a craft, from a steamboat to a canoe, and the shores have been thronged with expectant watchers. About 11 o'clock the steamer Mary Morton was seen to heave toward Maiden Rock bluff, which indicated that the Captain ha-1 been sighted, and was slowly wending his way toward the gulf. Not to be behindhand, your reporter procured a skiff and hied him to the spot indicated, and was met by the valiant captain and Mr. Cro nau, where we learned that they entered the lake at 2:30 o'clock yesterday, where they were met by adverse winds, reaching Frontenac at 10 o'clock last night. Arriving at Fron tenac they were met at the shore by that esti mable gentleman, Gen . Garrard, and cared for during the night. After a refreshing night's rest the party again took to the water. The wind was still blowing very fresh and it was found that the boat conveying their bag gage was insufficient to stand the waves, and a run was then made to the village of Maiden Rock, where a change was made for a largtr one, and the party proceeded down the lake, arriving at Lake City at 2:20 o'clock, and ow ing to the fact that the journey 6ince morning had been accompanied by excessive manual labor the party will remain here until morning. With the excep tion of weariness and considerable sunburnt the health of both the captain and Dr. Cronau is excellent. Both gentlemen speak in the highest terms of the treatment they received by the Globe while in St. Paul. The voyagers were furnished a bottle of ale by the steamer Mary Morton, which was thankfully received. After once more reaching the current good time is expected to be made by the captain, reaching St. Louis, as he says, about the loth. Mortuary, Detroit, Mich., May 30.— Jeremiah Hall, D.

THE ALUMNI. They Propose to "Go For" Pillsbury and Folwell— The Old. Prof. Campbell Bow Revived— Trying to Run the State Univer elty from the Outside — Programme for Commencement Day. There was little of interest at the university of Minnesota yesterday. The afternoon had been set apart for the meeting of the alumni association of the university. Some of the papers named the hour of meeting as 2 o'clock, others as 2:30 and others as 3 o'clock. Conse quently the members of the association strag. gled In all the way from 2 till 3:30 o'clock, at which hour the alumni convened to the num ber of thirty-two at the class room of the pro fessor of mathematics. The opening proceedings were characterized by considerable polite disorder, but finally it was decided to go into the election of officers for the ensuing year. Considerable time was consumed in this operation, the result of the balloting being as follows: President— Stephen H. Mahoney. Vice PresiJent— A. W. Rankin. Secretary— Mrs. J. W. Miner. Treasurer— Edward Chatfleld. Toast Master— Adison Gage, Jr. Poet— R. P. A. Nix. Orator— W. M. West. Some time was consumed in discussing the advisability of electing an alternate orator, but the matter was deferred. Mr. Bassett reported that he and a number of his associates had endeavored to find the opinions of the alumni as to the advisability of holding an annual dinner,and as the sentiment seemed to be against it they had decided that none should be given on the present occasion. The subject of having an alumni dinner next year was referred to the executive committee with power to act. The treasurer's report was submitted, which showed a balance on hand amounting to $37.25. An <tlumnus reported that the petition pre sented by Prof. Campbell had been considered by the committee and by the faculty. The latter body in secret session had rejected the application by a close vote. While the com mittee did not approve of the decision they could but report the facte. Dr. Sterritt proposed that as the faculty saw fit to go into secret session whenever it suited their convenience, the alumni emulate their example. He made a motion that the association go into secret session. The motion was debated at considerable length, three or four of the members objecting to such an unprecedented arrangement. A vote was finally taken, and the motion was carried by a vote of about two to one. Whereupon the reporters of the Minneapolis Tribune and the St. Paul Globe, the only ohtsiders who had graced the occasion with their presence, picked up their hats — the latest style of $7 Bilks— and bade the assemblage a polite adieu. Being ignorant of the reasons for secrecy, the reporter of the Globe made due inquiry, and ascertained that there has been, for some time, a serious misunderstanding between the faculty of the university and the alumni. Some time ago Prof. Campbell was driven from the university, it is alleged, through the machina tions of President Folwell and Gov. Pillsbury. Prof. Campbell was esteemed to be a very competent instructor, and was a favorite with the pupils and the alumni. His ejection from the institution was thought to be a wanton outrage, and the alumni has twice petitioned the board of regents for his restoration. No attention has been paid to their petitions, however, but they are not discouraged, and propose to move on the works of Folwell, Pillsbury, and the faculty. What decision they arrived at yesterday is not known to the reporter, who did not consider it worth his while to investigate, as he has learned that outside interference with the affairs of an in stitution of that description rarely amounts to anything. To-day will be commencement day proper at the university. The class is a large one, and tbe programme is, consequently, a long one. It will embrace tbe following features : Mu6ic— Boccacio March — F. v. Suppe. Prayer Rev. David Brooks Music — Spring Quartette — Jos. Hayden.

Early yesterday morning Wm. Sweeney was found in the Market house shed, on Cedar street, sleeping the sleep of an old bum and toper.

She related a harrowing story of brutality and ill-treatment, his conduct be ing such that she could not live with him. The case was submitted. THE GLOBE HOROSCOPE.

The Manchester Guardian's London corres pondent says it Is not in the least likely that the government has determined to deal with the land league as an illegal organization, but it is understood that communications have passed since the arrival in Dublin of Forster, chief secretary for Ireland, which go to show the government are determined not to delay using their powers under the coercion act to crush intimidation. Forster will return to London in time to attend to-morrow's cabi net meeting. . . SHOT. A dispatch from Longhra, county Oalway, says an agent has been shot near Woodford for refusing to accept payment of rent on the basis of Griffith's valuation. SEAS AND DYING. In the county of Waterford, where the riot occurred yesterday, growing out of the sale of tenants' interests in farms, the people parad ed the streets all last night. About thirty civilians are suffering from bayonet thrusts and sword cuts, inflicted by soldiers. One policeman died of his injuries, and some mounted police are not expected to live. MUST BE PUT DOWN. The Times says the rumor that the govern ment intends to adopt stringent measures for abating the terrorism of the Land League ap pears to have caused some excitement among the leaders of the agitation, and Parliament and the country have 'at length come to un derstand that the League is an aggressive or ganization, and that if the law does not put it down it will put down the law. Terrorism must be suppressed, whether it takes the form of vulgar, threatening letters, or assumes the loftier type of dictation. THE CLONMEL RIOT. . New Yobk, Junel.— A London cablegram tells the story of the origin and progress of the riot at Clonrael, County - Tipperary, Ire land. When Moddart, agent of the emergency committee, was leaving the court, he was re ceived with groans and hisses. A priest was passing out of the building when the crowd made a rush to enter. A policeman, in the confusion, laid his hand on the priest's arm. At once a cry went up "Father Maker has been arrested, crowd became fearfully" excited, and the authorities at ; once concentrated the full force of military and constabulary before the courthouse. ' Bottles, stones and brick bats were poured on the police, and soldiers. Capt. SUck, resident magistrate, threatened to read the riot act, and at that moment a police man was knocked senseless at his side with a stone. Oapt. Stack produced the act, and sev eral priests implored him not to read it, as, If he did, the consequences would be terrible. The stone throwing did not cease, and as Capt. Slack after reading the act pronounced: the words, "God save the Queen," a stone smashed the skull of another policeman standing be side him. The unfortunate man died last even ing. The police charged on the people with fixed bayonets, and at the same time th% cav alry dashed in among the crowd. The scene was frightful and confusion followed. The charge of the cavalry down the short etreet was so impetuous 'that several horses and riders dashed through shop windows at the end of the street. The air was filled ' with stones and bricks, and the fright ened shop-keepers, who were endeavoring to put up their shutters, were hurled to the ground and ridden over. Several hussars were unhoreed by the crowd and trampled upon by the horses of their comrades coming behind them. The charges through the streets lasted fully half un hour. A portion of the . crowd fled, while others fa«;ed the charging horsemen, battering in their helmets with stones. The hnssars used the flat of their swords freely, the point and edge being . strictly forbidden them. One huesar, in charging around a corner, met with a serious >* mishap.' His horse stumbled and fell, and five or six of his comrades following" swiftly fell over the prostrate horse and rider. Before the men could recover themselves their horses had galoped up the street and the men had to defend themselves from the mob until the were rescued. Owing to the exertions of the* priests, several of whom received many hard knocks, the people were finally induced to disperse. A soldier of the Forty-eighth regiment was so seriously injured his life is despaired of. The doctor states that the man, if he recovers, will be in sane. About thirty citizens were seriously wounded. POLICEMEN KILLED. Dublin, June 1. — Reports have reached Limerick that three policemen were killed dur ing the eviction riot in County Clare. Riot ing in Clonmel was resumed to-day. All the police and soldiers charged the mob, and many people were ' wounded. The troops finally cleared the streets. It is rumored six persons have been shot dead at Tulla, near Ennis. A sanguinary col lision is also said to have occurred in tbe town of Seariff, same county. The castle partisans Bay the people are inflamed to such a pitch, and are "so demoralized by agitation, they are ripe for any mischief. They are also flushed with partial success over both the civil and military power, and are be coming daily more daring. The soldiery and police are incensed not merely against the populace, but against the author ities, who will not permit them to defend themselves. There is some risk of this indig nant feeling assuming a form dangerous to discipline, and may lead to an irrepressible outbreak of fury against the populace or acts of retaliation upon the inhabitants of the gar risoned districts. The war office has ordered the barracks at New Ross, now occupied by a troop of hussars, to be fitted with port holes for musketry. CITY NOTICES.

How will you manage it to keep the others out?" "Oh, I shall treat everybody politely, but I shall not encourage visits from those who don't behave themselves. I won't sell to drunkards— to men who cannot control themselves— for they ought to be strict tem perance men. I think you will see that such men will not often come here." i .
