Opening Day of the Northwestern Ex
position at Minneapolis.
Ami a Bight Jolly Time the Multitude
of Little Folks Secure.
A Look Through Some of the Depart
A Remarkably Superior Display of Cat
tle—Programme for To-Day.
The day, broke with a rain storm which
threatened to dampen, at least, the sports
■which the fair management had arranged
especially for the children and their
mothers. Bat by '.) o'clock the lowering
cloud- began to roll away, and the little
ones by the thousands started for the
grounds. By 10 o'clock everything was
life and bustle. Boys were shouting and
whistling, girl- laughing, and mothers
looked happy in the comfort and genuine
pleasure of their pretty broods. The stock
had all arrived and every stall was filled.
Almost all the displays in mechanical hall
were also in their proper places, and
appeared to the best possible advantage.
The ajrriculiur::! implements on exhi
bition at the ea.-ttrn end of the ground at
tracted their full attention.
The fat womau, snake charmers, man of
the iron jaw, slight of hand performances
and the like are in full operation, and drew
large audiences yesterday.
There is a sufficient number of dining
halls to supply the hungry and booths to
quench the thirst of the thousands, and
just outside the grounds are any number
of dining halls, beer booths, confectionery
shops and peanut stands. No matter what
the visitor wants to add to his physical
comfort he will find ample provisions.
The police have a headquarters just to
the right of the general entrance, in which
is a lookup, which ii provided for the un
ruly and the crooks. The fair ground
squad are under command of Capt. Chase,
and are as follows : Officer Marsh, on duty
in the amphitheatre; Officers Nelson and
Krumrorite, in the office of the treasurer;
Officer Fox, agricultural hall; Officer Sil
verthorne, stock yards; Officer Egan, lock
up; Officers Sullivan, Hem and Lane, ma
chines; Officer Me Kennedy, in front of the
grand stand.
Officers Thiernish, Blaise and Coffin are
mounted and will patrol ali parts of the
open grounds. Besides the above is a large
fore, of private detectives in citizens'
cloth who are on tha outlook for crooks,
and blacklegs of all sorts, and there are a
great many iv the city, some of whom
were spotted on tha grounds yesterday and
will be persistently shadowed throughout
the woc-t .
Thw poli ing vigilant watch at
tho t.v surez'd office, with revolvers in
hand, aud in case a rush is made for the
cash box, they are under orders to make
the lend fly, i:v.d it may be well added that
the two officer.- who are selected for this
responsible duly will not swervo.
Mechanical ll<tU.
Tha bustle and noise attendant on fixing
up displays in the hall yesterday grated
harshly on the auricular appendages of
the spectators. The exhibits are of the
character, but machinery is slightly repre
The Pray Manufacturing company have
on exhibition on the lower floor a double
circular or rotary sawmill; the Pye cen
trifugal reel, a new invention shown for
the first time and used in bolting flour and
also the Livingston roller mill.
Adjoining this is an exhibit by the Con
tinental Oil and Transportation company
of kerosenes, napthas, and lubricants.
On the other side of ths hall is a fine
exhibit of wood and iron fences by the
Minneapolis Fence works, a large
display of colored leads and liq
uid I "1 paints jby Skinner and
Sly and a lar^e assortment of scales of
variou3 stjles and sizes by the Buffalo
Scale company, represented by Miller
Bros., Minneapolis. Dale, Barnes, Morse
& Co. have an elegant assortment of dra
peries and fine laces on exhibition, and
Plant & Peterson of carpets, rugs and up
Beetnan & Myers exhibit wall papers of
varied hues and also ceiling decorations
which attract much attention. W. D.
GoDdhue exhibits drapery and window
shades. The cereal displays in the center
of the hall are the cynosure of all behold
ers. The land department of the Minne
apolis & Manitoba Railway company, have
a fine display of samples of wheat, oats
barley, rye and different kinds of veget
ables raised in Polk, Meeker, Kittson and
other counties through which it traverses.
A specimen of "Surprise" wheat from
Meeker county; of "Fife," from the Don
aldson & Ryan farm, Kennedy, Kittson
county, raised on a 6,000 acre field, and
another from Childs & Co.'a Riverside
farm, Polk county, sown on April 20 and
cut on Aug. 18, give undoubted evidence of
the agricultural productions of these coun
ties. Besides these are specimens of "Blue
Stem and White Riverside" wheat, from
Stevens county; of Champlin No. 1 hard,
from Marshall county; Crookston oats, six
feet tall and seventy-five bushels to the
aore; winter rye from Swift & Chevalier;
barley from Marshall, the last mentioned
yielding forty-five bushels to the acre,being
planted on the 20th of May and reaped on
the 20th of August. The Bismarck exhibits
of cereals are magnificent, as are also the
Mandan specimens of wheat, vegetables,
tomatoes, squashes, potatoes, beans, etc.
The latter exhibits were not selected, but
were promiscuously taken from the fields
of homestead settlers. They bespeak well
for our neighboring territory of Dakota.
The Milwaukee and St. Paul R. R. Co. is
not behind its competitors in the grand
display of wheat, oats and other cereals in
this hall. The Pillsbury exhibit forms an
attractive feature in *he decoration of this
department. The different brands of flou r
manufactmed by the company are artistic
ally arranged in the form of a pyramid or
cone in sm; .ll paper sacks, labeled "Pills
bury's Best." "Anchor," "0. X.," "Tonka,"
'Minnesota Belle," etc., and samples of
middlings and flour are also arranged for
the inßpect'on and admiration of the gap
ing multitude.
On the npper floor is a display of goods
by th< Syndicate Clothing Co. A large
space is occupied by billiard and pool
tables exhibited by the I. M.Brunswick
& Balke Co., of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
Charles Sturle, of St. Paul, exhibits gas
machines; Foster Bros. & Whitcomb,
bianos and organs; C. A. Hoffman, specta
lles, eye glasses, opera and field glasses,
Kpmpasses, thermometers and drawing inj
struments. Witte Bros, are exhibiting for
the first time the Clipper washer machine
and wringer. The Nichols organ for con
cert, chapel &nd parlor can also be seen
here. Geo. D. Barnard & Co., litho
graphers and blank book makers, have a
line selection of blank books on display.
To-day they they will show a huge volnroH
of 3,000 pages, fourteen inches thick and
weighing 295 pounds.
The Minneapolis academy have on ex
hibit urnamentnl specimens of penman
ship executed by the students and
the Archiboid Business college shows speci
mens of practie,:! and 2 0rn? imenti'.l pen
man ship which lira much admired. That
prince of penmen, C. C. Curtiss, has an j
unusually interesting exhibit which elicits i
the admiration of all beholders It oc- I
cupies the pleasantest corner of the gal- I
lery and consists of all varieties of pen
work, iucludiug plain and ornamental
writing, flourishing, ladia ink drawing,
ornate ietto.irg, «nd is altogether the best
display of penwork ever made at the fair.
Prof. Cortina and one of his aesistants are
on hand to convince the most skeptical
that they do what they profess to do.
They are writing, and giving to visitors
specimens of the most artistic penman- I
has but a sm»ll exhibit, yet some beautiful
textile. fabrics, three checker tables of in
genious construction, the largest of them
containing 2,900 pieces, and a half dozen
paintings of superior excellence. To day
there will be a large collection which will
be noticed in due time.
The Sports.
At 2 o'clock the grand stand was well
filled with exuberant children, about 6,000
probably as supremely happy as a crowd
of little ones could possibly be. They
cheered and shouted in joy at the pros
pects of the fun premised them by the
management, and they were not disapoint
ed. Every feature of the programme
brought out the most enthusiastic cheers.
The most amusing, for old as well as young
was the boys' foot race.
The sports opened with the pony race
by boys under sixteen years of age who
rode thsir own ponies. The rac3 was a
half mile, best two in three, for a purse
of $25, divided — and it was a eircas.
The entries were as follows:
Ben Nudd.
Philip Kbisner.
Charles Keener.
James S. Merryfield.
Gust. Lundberg.
Fred Miller.
When the announcement was rn.?.'.ie to
the little oner, in the amphitheat
the pony race they cheered them
selves hoarse. The start was made at the
half mile post, p.nd at 2:15 the boys got
off, Bending their ponies for all they were
worth, tor the wire. It was a scramble.
They got ofi in a cluster. At the three
fourth pole, when Gus Lundberg pulled
to the lead, closely followed by all the
other?, almost abreast. Gus won the heat,
with Fred. Miller second, Charley Keisner
third, James Merry field 4th, Ben Nadd sth
and Phil. Keisner last. Time, 1:02.
Second heat — The second heat made a
material change in positions . Lundberg
quiokly took the lead, but coming up the
home stretch with every pony under the
whip and the children all shouting their
best, Miller got first and won the heat,
with Lundberg a length behind, Phil.
Keisner third, Ben Nudd fourth, James
Merryfield fifth and Charles Keisner last.
Time, 1 :02.
Third heat — In this heat there were but
two starters, Miller and Lundberg, the
others having drawn. Miller won the race
easily, taking first money, Lundberg sec
ond, Phil. Keisner third.
Ben Nudd 6 4 0
Phil. Keisner 6 3 0
Chas. Keisner 3 6 0
James S. Merryfield 4 5 0
(last Lundberg 1 2 2

Time, 1:02,1:02, l:o3>£.
The second race was that of the newa
boyp, or boys who carry for the daily
papers, best two in three, half mile heats.
Tha parse was also $25, divided. The
entries were:
John Schrooder. Journal.
J times Horloii.
Harry Armstrong.
Charles Bonnett.
George Wortman.
Wm. Porter.
Oscar Richardson.
Morris Bisbee.
To the children, this was also an excit
ing contest and close. James Horton won
the heat, Wm. Porter second, John Schroe
der third, Chas. Bonnett fourth, Morris
Bisbee fifth, George Wortman sixth, Harry
Armstrong seventh and Oscar Richardson
last. Time 1:07.

Jus. Horton 1 1
Harry Armstrong 7 7
Chas. Bonnett 4 5
George Wortman 6 8
Wm. Porter 2 2
Oscar Richardson 8 8
Morris Bisbee 5 6
Time, 1:07, 1:07.
As a special feature to oocapy time
while the mules were being waited for, a
purse was offered for a boy's foot race, any
boy under fifteen years of age being elegi
ble. The winner to get $5, second $2,
third $1, fourth fifty cents, and fifth twen
ty-five cents. The race was 150 yards dash.
When the call was made it was unadulter
ated fun to see the little fellows clam
ber and jump into the track. There were
fully 100 starters, making several rows
across the full width of the track. When
the flag dropped thoy till started, but soon
scattered, and Tom. Hawley took first,
John Samuels second, Willie Hawley third,
Henry Cardosie fourth, and the great un
known fifth.
The mules still being derelict another
race was given a quarter mile dash, all
boys between fourteen and sixteen years
of age being eligible. The first got $2 and
the second $1. There were about fifty
starters. This proved a good tug for the
boys, and by the time the wire was reach
ed many had weakened. Herman Walters
took first money and Gaorge Todd second.
Time l:0G.
A tnird race between boys under ten
years, 100 yard dash, next pleased the
children. The winner got $2, and second
1. There were about 125 starters. It
was a close contest. Billy Eible took first
money, and Willie Davis second.
There being a dispute between the little
tads as to who really came in first and
, second, the judges made up another purse
I of §2 and $1, and the ten-year-old urchins
■ made another start.
This was also 100 yards and 100 started.
The first money was given Johnnie Shuea
ter, while Willie Powers took second.
This was followed by a number of side
races, gotten up by the boys themselves, sjo
ending the day's fun.
The mule race did not fill, and was con-
I sequently postponed until to-morrow. Mr.
j Malaney was the only man who appeared
with his long-eared brayer.
The bicycle race was also on the list
which failed to fill, but the management
announces that it will occur during the
| week. *
Tlte Cattle.
It is impossible for the Globe to give a
comprehensive review of the stock on ex
hibition this year in one day. The great
est breeders of the country are here with
large herds selected for the especial pur
pose, and they are a unit in the statement
that the show far exceeds anything which
they ever attended in this country especial
ly as regards imported stock. The stalls are
all filled, and a large crew of carpenters
were engaged all day in erecting new
stalls. The magnitude of the display is a
wonder to everybody.

Dick Liddell'fl Damaging Testimony l"a
--sli»ke'» on Cross Examination — The De
fense Bound to Prove That Liddell Is
An Incompetent "Witness Not Having:
Been Pardoned for Horse Steal in —
Counsel Hot to Acquit and Convict.
Galiatin. Mo., Aug. 27. — The Frank
James trial was resumed this mornirjg.
Mrs. Samuel*, mother of Frank Jame?,
v.as sworu for the defense, after which
Dick Liddell was cro?.-* examined. It
leaked oat that the defence will endeavor
to prove an ali^i, Gen. Joe Shelby being
their principal witness, and further that
the Winston £ang consisted of five men,
but that Bill Cuinmiugs was the fifth man,
not Frank James.
The first fact brought out in
the cross examination was that
the witness had been convicted of
horse stealing and had served in the peni
tentiary. Witness was questioned minute
ly as to his relations to the gang. During
the three years preceding the train rob
bery, their trips to Hites in Tennessee, and
their return to Missouri. Saw General
Shelby at his house in 1880. Gummings
and I were together, and Jesse James and
Bill Ryan were behind.
Witness denied that Shelby said to Jesse
James that two young men had been ar
rested for the Conoordia bank robbery and
he [Shelby] did not believe they had any
thing to do with it, and Jesse replied,
pointing to witness: ''There is a man who
is the Dutch cashier on ahead." Witness
maintained he heard no such conversation.
After detailing further movements the
witness said the arrangement to come to
Missouri was perfected at Bud Hall's house
in Tennessee, but Frank James was not
present. The defense lay great stress on
this point. Witness then narrated his trip
which terminated in the Winston robbery.
His direct testiicony was unshaken.
The aitorneys for the defense iv the
Frank James trial express great confi
dence that if James is convicted, of which
they do not seem to have ai:y fear, they
can secure a reversal on .-several grounds.
The chief of the?a are that tl
pardon of Liddtll contained nothing indi
cating that Gov. Brockmeyer actually in
tended to pardon the convict, b;;t the docu
ment was simply n commutation of sen
tence. He Baja hi? testimony was not
It is also held that not only is it a f ;ci
that Judge Goodman distinctly ruled that
before the pardon could become operative
the state must prove it was delivered to
the convict, nnd yet the judge, after ascer
taining from the witness that he did not
know whether he had ever rtcsivei such a
document as whs offered in the court and
he didn't, in fact, know whether he had
read a pardon at all or not, admttted the
document in the defense aud declared the
witness competent to testify.
There are still other grounds upon
which the defense rely, but these will show
that the defendent's counsel intend to fight
the case to the bitter end.
On the other hand the prosecution are
equally determined. Mr. Wallace, attorney
for the state, says that even had the court
ruled out the pardon or declared the wit
ness incompetent, he would have immedi
ately applied to Gov. Crittenden, who was
present, for a full pardon for Liddell, and
the governor would have been under the
necessity of granting it, because to refuse
to do so would have been to virtually par
don Frank James.
The Bosttn Failure.
Boston, Aug. 27. — Wyman, assignee of
F. Shaw & Bros., says that Shaw will re
main in Canada until his presence is de
sired by the creditors here. He does not
think the Park bank will cause much more
trouble in the settlement. Legal proceed
ings were instituted against Shaw as a
non • resident debtor under the statutes of
New York state and were made merely for
additional security. George W. Morse,
Shaw's attorney, has gone to New York.
It is intimated here that Shaw will not re
turn from Canada until some understand
ing with the creditors is arrived at.

Camp Uppeb Geysek Basin, Wyoming,
Aug. 25; via Livingston, Mt., Aug. 26, —
Our camp remains to-day amongst ihe
pine trees of the second mesa, above Fire
Hole river. It is nearly at the head of the
Upper Geyser bason, and within sight and
hearing of Old Faithful geyser. A later
breakfast was the reward of yesterdays'
long march over a dusty trail and through
burned and fallen timber. To-day the
examination of the wonders here began at
an hour considerably later than the one
usual for our daily start on the march.
Before the 1 o'clock luncheon the presi
dent and most of the members of the par
ty on horseback explored nearly all of
this basin. They were rewarded by being
present at the grand geyser at the time
of one of its great eruptions, the three
giants being simultaneously in action.
The crater of granduer is about thirty
feet in diameter and the height of the
ejected column of water is nearly 300 feet.
To-day there were eight eruptions, the
time of the whole being forty-two min
This afternoon the president, secretary
of war, General Sheridan and several oth
ers of the party went to Hell's Half Acre,
about a mile below here, to visit the
famous Sheridan geyeer, which became at
tractive only three years ago. It was de
scribed by Prof. Heale as a hot spring
in which butterflies, grasshoppers and in
animate objects were rapidly encrusted
with deposits of silica. The spring be
came an active geyser the summer of Gen
eral Sheridan's first visit to the park and
was named in his honor.
Old Faithful to-day has been the laun
dress of the command. Articles of cloth
ing thrown into her crater when returned
in her fitfol humor was washed perfectly
olean. It is advised, however, that a fabric
of silk or woolen be not given to her to
wash, as they are usually torn into shreds
or not washed at all.
The president and all of the party are
well and enjoy perhaps as much as any
thing else the evening gatherings around
the social camp-fire.
