The contest at Sacra mento for the tTnited States Senatorshlp is ex citing much interest throughout the State, but thus far the developments of the balloting have be*n a disappointment. It was expected that they would show- more changes from the bal loting of eleven months ago. The predictions that Burns would reveal unusual strength have proved false, and the contest may result In the choice of one of the minor candidates, If any choice be m^de. . . . . No one who has wntchea the course of events, however, would he surprised were another dead lock to occur. Meanwhile the Legislature has voted enough to pay expenses for a long term, though several prominent Republicans warned members that such action would be difficult to explain at the nex' election. The funeral honors given to General Lawton were pimple, ?>ut the crowds that lined Market st. and wat.-ried the silent cortege as it made Its way to th« ferry station gave ample proof cf the regard of San Franciscans for the dead General.

A WEEK OF SPORT INDOORS AND OUT— PROMTNKNT PEOPLE AT THE HOTELS. Lakewood. N. J., Feb. 3 (Special). — A touch of. winter in the air this week, while It has brought no snow, has covered the li ke again with a splen did sheet of clear ice which has been watched with great eagerness by the younger portion of Lakewood's population. In fact, there was rather too much eagerness. The Ice was entirely unsafe Wednesday, notwithstanding which a few ventured to test It, and one young woman, a visitor in the plr.ee, broke through, fortunately in only about thtee feet of water. In spc-rts, golf securely holds Its place as first choice of the majority. The prize contests offered l.y the two clubs on Saturday were more largely attended than for many months. At the bird traps there was an all day shoot of pigeons, and partici pants In this sport were Edwin Gould, Dwlght M. Harris. James Converse and Frederick A. Potts.

A LARGE INFTJTX OF GPKSTS FROM NEW YORK—PLANS FOR SUMMER. Atlantic City, K. J., Feb. 3 (Special) -Although Old Boreas did his best to stir things up for a few days, the week J-st closing has been a remarkably enjoyable one down here by the sea. The skies as a rule have been clear and bright, and the only bar to perfect comfort was the slightly nipping temperature which prevailed for a day or two. But even this has Its compensations. The sea. un der the Influence of the cold air, seemed to be calmer than usual, and the foam which was driven up on the beach and frozen at high water mark formed a narrow white line of Ice all along the beach, that was quite a novel sight to the majority of visitors. And then, after all. It was not so cold but that the usual midday promenade on the Boardwalk could be enjoyed by all except the rhost delicate of the Invalids, and even these could sit comfortably In the sun parlors of the beach front hotels and watch those who were nbroad. But the Arctic wave did not last long, and the weather has now moderated until the thermometer registers th© normal winter figures. The number of visitors was largely Increased this week, the influx of guests surprising even the hotel men. who are usually surprised at nothing. An unusually large proportion of the Incoming throng ■was composed of New-Yorkers. The active preparations for next summer's Horse Show have begun, and tha affair will. In all proba bility, be much more Important than was that of last summer. The show this y»ar will continue four days. Instead of three, beginning on Wednes day, July 11, and remaining open for the balance of the week. The outlook for entries Is promising, and those In charge already have assurances from horse owners who were not here last summer, as well as from those who were, that they are com ing with fine strings of ribbon horses. The Ex ecutive Committee, which met at the Hotel Windsor a few days ago and set afoot the arrangements for the coming exhibition. Is composed of G. Jason Waters, Joseph H. Borton. Henry W Leeds, Wal ter J. Buzby. Judge Allen B. Endlcott and J. Haines Lippincott. The officers of the association are: President. G. Jason Waters; first vice-president. Charles Evans; second vic»-preslrlent. Joseph H. Borton; secretary, Henry W. Leeds; treasurer. Judge Allen B. Endlcott: assistant secretary and manager. W. S. Blitz. The local Elks are still hard at work getting ready for the coming reunion and convention of their order, which will be held here the same week as the Horse Show. It Is expected that the con vention will bo the largest gathering of Elks ever held, and it Is proposed to give the visiting mem bers of the order such a reception that they will return to their homes with nothing but the kindliest remembrances of Atlantic City. With the Elks' convention and tho Horse Show both in progress at the same time, the week will be one of excitement and pleasure. A report was circulated a few days ago to the effect that Sunday baseball was to be in order here next summer, but It has met with a prompt and vigorous denial from the managers of the local team, who also control the Inlet Park. Even If the locel magnates were willing to arrange for Sun day games, it is hardly probable that the authorities would permit It, as the tendency is toward fewer rather than more amusements on Sunday. , The local and visiting golfers are becoming deep ly interested in the proposed visit of Harry Varden, the British open champion. It is almost certain that he will play at least one match on the links of the Atlantic City Couniry Club, at Northfleld. and it will be, In some respects, the most interest ing contest of his series In this country. The North field links Is said by experts to more nearly re semble those of England and Scotland than any other In this country, and the golfing enthusiasts will be given an opportunity of neelng Varden play on a course quite similar to those on which he has made such startling records in his own country. An Important social event this week was the mar riage on Wednesday of Miss 3 Lucle McGlade, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles McGlade. of the Hotel Central, to Richard Raynor Bnrgfeldt. the son of a prominent New-York manufacturer. The ceremony took place at high noon in St. Nicholas's Roman Catholic Church, Father MeShnne officiat ing, assisted by Father McGean, of Brooklyn. The bride was attended by her sister. Miss Mamie Mc- Glade, as bridesmaid, and the best man was Thomas Mulianey, of Brooklyn. Tho ushers were John and Harry Gormley. The ceremony was followed by a wearing breakfast at the Hotel Central, after which the happy couple started on a month's bridal tour to Washington and the South. They Will make their home in Brooklyn. J be Brooklyn iAjdge of Eiks has alrendy secured Its headquarters for the coming convention of the order. The lodge will be located at the Ponce de Leon, in Vlrginia-ave., having engaged accommo dations for tirty members and their families. Brook lyn Lodge made its headquarters at the same house during the last convention, and after their return home the members sent Mrs. 3. K. Sweeny, tho pro prietor, a handsomely engrossed set of resolutions expressing tbeli appreciation of the treatment they received at her hands during their visit here. GL'ESTS AT THE HOTELS.

In his address at the annual dinner of the Board of Trade at Yonkers, on Friday evening. K. K. Martin, president of the Board, said In part: New-York Is the Imperial city of the Western world. Yonkers Is the- largest city on its borders and athwart the patuway of Its greatest develop ment.

PETERS'* REZWXATIOy HIS STATEMENT TO-DAY EXPECTED TO GIVE THE CAUSES OF HIS ACTIOX. The statement that the Rev. Dr. Madison C Peters will read from the pulpit this morning an nouncing his resignation as pastor of the Bloom- Ingdale Reformed Church is awaited with a great deal of interest. Since it leaked out that at a meeting: of the Board of . Trustees on Thursday night Dr. Peters tendered his resignation a desire has been manifested to know all the causes for his act. Dr. Peters has said briefly that he could no longer subscribe to the» doctrines of the Church, and that for that reason he resigned. Various members of the Board of Trustees have been seen, ami they all declare that the trouble is purely a doctrinal one. They will not talk further, and in every case say to wait until Dr. Peters makes his announcement from the pulpit to-day. Tbere have been rumors that there is friction be tween Dr. Peters and some of the more influential members of his parish; that the church is not in a flourishing condition financially, and that, aside from the doctrinal incompatibility, there is an other and more worldly side to his wish to resign. No confirmation of these reports can be secured, and Dr. Peters and the members of- the Board of Trustees deny them. The statement of Dr. Peters will be listened to with keen interest to learn whether It gives any inkling of such troubles as have been Indicated, MOLINBVX JIROR GOES <>IT DOOMS.
