San Francisco, j Feb. 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.

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

NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. SUNDAY. FEBRUARY 4. 1900.
COLD AT ATLANTIC CITY.
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
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.

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

at tli- south and of Manhattan Island, and thirty
inlnuHs from it» shopping districts mid places of

through which Its population daily comes and ko»-«
to and from the metropolis.

their aggravating detentions by fog and storm and
ice; avoid tunnels, dreary and stifling with steam
and smoke and smell; avoid the distressing Bridge,
with Its surging. Jostling crowd.
Once here, you not only dwell In the heart of a
panorama of surpassing beauty, but have a com

public that is exceedingly gratifying and the opportunity we are extending to you on the occasion of the Second Anniversary, will

bewildering representation. You will really find this sale the most notable and worthy one of its kind in our history

New-York, for the first time In Its history, by

the steam drill, and dynamite and electricity, under
the ground and on top of it. is preparing to march
north to come to Yonkers— not as Great Britain,
under a Roberts or a Buller. Is marching against
the Boers, but under great captains of Industry,
for which America is already famous. leading a
peaceful army of occupation recruited from all na

DR. M ADI SOS C. 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,
